Joy Behar roasts Chris Christie at a roast for someone else – and humiliates herself in the process

Last week, comedian Joy Behar was invited to deliver a roast at an event in honor of former New Jersey Governor Brendan Byrne. Instead, Behar used her time at the podium to offer a scathing roast of current New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. While Behar may have thought she was being clever, she ended up looking like an absolute imbecile.

“Last week, comedian Joy Behar delivered a roast of Chris Christie at an event that was supposed to be a roast of the former governor of New Jersey. And she spent her time taking shots at Christie, who is sitting right next to her,” Glenn said. “You should see the video… She just takes really just bad, stupid, you know, Joy Behar jokes. And the governor is just staring at her.”

As The New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza reported, Behar spent more time taking shots at Christie, who was sitting right next to her, than focusing on the task at hand. Things got particularly awkward when Christie jokingly interrupted her to remind her it was supposed to be a roast of Byrne. In response, Behar told the governor to “stop bullying me,” prompting a reaction from the crowd. Behar than suggested Christie “get up here at the microphone instead of being such a coward.”

“There’s one thing about Chris Christie: He’s not a coward,” Glenn said. “So he did get up to the microphone, and he said, ‘Really? This is what you were thinking? At least I don’t get paid for this’… It’s an ugly, ugly exchange. Very awkward. And Joy Behar just looks bad, as usual.”

    Christie is toast

      Why? He’s done nothing wrong except frighten the lefties.

        Staging this roast April 1 (also known as April Fools/All Fools Day) does not mean we must all look and act like fools. From Progressive Leftists to Conservative Rightists, a Chris Christie presidency would harm our republic as seriously as Barack Obama’s presidency has.

        Christie abuses executive authority, much the same way Obama does, by issuing executive orders that nullify laws and stay prosecutions for defined periods, followed by ex post facto nullifications of the stays. Fuzzy-thinkers threaten America, be they from the Republican Party, the Democrat Party, the Socialist Party, Mars, Uranus or mine.

    For Bahar to mention weight and make fun of a person that has lost over 120 lbs when she is no runway model herself is the utmost in hutzpah especially when she could not even begin to do be Christy’s secretary.

    Joy Behar is not really ever that funny.

    • Anonymous

      that funny? I find very little humor in most of what little I’ve heard from her.

        You are taking the comment wrong. I believe Connor means that Joy simply is not funny anyway.

  • ivan

    She is one of the most irritating creatures ever to make it into TV. A dentist’s drill is more pleasant.

  • Kathleen Marion

    Joy Behar, no class, no tact, just tacky and disgusting.

  • Anonymous

    Behar is an especially disgusting excuse for a human being. Who couldn’t speak the truth if her life depended on it. I am no fan of Christie. But the roast was not about Christie. She disrespected the guest of honor for one of her rabid political rants and completely ignoring the honored person. This woman has major mental issues. She’s a psycho.

      And those would be her good points.

  • maggiespat

    Comedian? Is that what she is? I always wondered.

  • Amanda Russell

    What the hell……..that was real classy, Joy.

  • Deckard426

    One look at Joy, and it’s easy to see why she’s so spiteful. She needs a sign that reads, Ugly Stepsister for Rent.

  • suz

    absolutely NOTHING WRONG w/having a small dog…says brutes (my chihuahua) and wwwwhatever he says goes.

  • Know Really

    Someone once told Joy that she was funny (they meant it sarcastically). She didn’t get it and instead ran with it. Looks like she’s out of wind. (She ran out of brains a while back.)

    Obviously it doesn’t take much for a Liberal to look (and sound) stupid. That’s their nature.

    just look at her face, it says it all
