A day after “The View” co-host Meghan McCain exploded at her liberal co-host Joy Behar, actor Kevin Sorbo, best known for his starring roles in the TV shows “Hercules: The Legendary Journeys” and “Andromeda” and more recently the family-friendly films “Let There Be Light” and “God’s Not Dead,” took to social media to address Joy Behar on socialism, suggesting that Behar “needs to move … see what socialism can do” to her pocketbook.
