While discussing Barack Obama and the education of his two daughters, Joy Behar, a former public school teacher, described homeschooled children as “demented” on ABC’s “The View.”

“I think they should get an education just like George Bush in the White House did,” Behar joked on the Nov. 19 show.

The audience laughed.

Her co-host, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, replied, “I think [homeschooling] actually is a good thing.”

Then Behar cut her off, saying, “A lot of them are demented when they’re homeschooled. … They’re afraid of children. They learn to be scared of other children.”
