He found something that many previous guests had long sought without success — the off switch to her mouth.
Joy Behar, co-host on ABC’s “The View,” pummeled Donald Rumsfeld with a mantra that has become all-too-familiar for nearly seven months — that Hillary Clinton was the true victor of the 2016 presidential election because of her popular vote win.

“Well, [Donald Trump] lost by more than three million votes in the popular vote,” Behar told the former secretary of defense, while admitting that “he won the electoral vote.”
Media shocked as President Trump RIPS NATO leaders to their faces: Stop sticking it to US taxpayers!
Rumsfeld may be 84, but his mind is as sharp as ever. He didn’t skip a beat.
“What counts?” he asked.
“Well the electoral vote counts,” Behar answered.
“I thought so,” Rumsfeld said, and that was the end of that.
Behar found a new subject with the House, Senate and FBI investigations into alleged Russian coordination with the Trump camp over the 2016 election. She and co-host Sunny Hostin suggested a comparison to the Watergate scandal.
“I think [that’s] a stretch,” Rumsfeld said, then yanked her back to reality. “Why do you want to engage in hypotheticals? This man was elected president of the United States.”
He reminded her that it was only an investigation — and that it had just begun.
“Nothing has been concluded. I have a sense you might be jumping to conclusions.”
The performance earned a good laugh on social media.

Florida-based Republican media strategist Rick Wilson had a vision shared by many.
I had this fantasy I’d turn on the View and see Rumsfeld, shirtless and covered in Joy Behar’s blood, holding her decapitated head aloft.
