Joy Behar may have received flowers from GOP candidate for Senate from Nevada Sharron Angle, but that doesn't mean she's making nice.
Angle apparently had a heavy fundraising push off Behar's commentary, and sent her flowers as a thank you for the $150,000 she raised online Tuesday.
"I'd like to point out that those flowers were picked by illegal immigrants, and they're not voting for you, bitch!" Behar said.
"You know what's offensive?" Behar added. "Watching those ads, and watching people who work for a living made to look like villains. That's what's offensive. Not what I said. Let's get that straight, America."
Behar added that Angle could've used the money spent on the flowers for sensitivity training, or donated it to AIDS victims or poor children.
"Don't send me flowers, Sharon," she said. "Put your money where your mouth is."
Behar later donated $5,000 to AIDS organization God's Love We Deliver in Angle's name.
The ad attacked Angle's opponent, Harry Reid, while also vilifying Latinos. Rachel Maddow called it the "most overtly racist racist ad of this campaign season."
