Well, that was rude.

Conservative radio host Bill Cunningham launched a seemingly unprovoked personal attack on Joy Behar of “The View” Thursday, calling her an “ugly broad” who “needs a muzzle,” Media Matters noted.

Cunningham, appearing on the radio show of Fox News’ Sean Hannity, apparently didn’t appreciate Behar’s thoughts on Donald Trump’s deal to keep Carrier in Indiana and avoid a company move to Mexico.“The problem is we’re losing jobs to robots, not to Mexicans,” Behar had said during Wednesday’s coffee klatch on ABC. “That’s the problem. We are losing to technology.” She added later that saving jobs was not the same as creating jobs.

When Hannity mentioned to Cunningham that “1,100 jobs were saved” in the Carrier deal, the guest let loose.

“That doesn’t make any difference to that Behar ... that ugly broad on ‘The View.’ Who in the hell is that?”

“She needs a muzzle. Someone should muzzle her.”

Cunningham also got in a dig at another “View” host. “Let’s send Carrier air conditioning to the armpits of Whoopi Goldberg. Let’s get her calmed down a little bit.”

And here’s “The View” conversation.

The Huffington Post reached out to Behar and “The View” for comment.
