Behar's comments came during a discussion about Democratic presidential frontrunner Hillary Clinton's reaction when a supporter said he wants to "strangle" GOP presidential candidate Carly Fiorina every time he sees her on television.

In response to the questioner's comment, Clinton, a declared feminist, laughed and then said, "I wouldn't mess with you."

After a few minutes of discussion on the issue, Behar jumped in, telling her show co-hosts to be "fair."

"Let's be fair," Behar said. "If somebody had said that to Donald Trump and he had laughed, we would be ripping him a new one and she did not — she should have stood up to him. I'm sorry, I have to say that."

Earlier in the segment, co-host Paula Faris said, "We held Carly Fiorina to a certain standard and expected her to stop that voter in his or her tracks ... I think every politician, especially, we're talking about violence against a woman. We're talking about strangling a woman here. You’re talking about strangling a woman."

In agreement with Behar's comments, Faris said Clinton needs to stand up for the "only other female" in the presidential election cycle.
