Panelists on “The View” continued to ridicule President Donald Trump after video appeared showing First Lady Melania Trump slapping away the president’s touch.
Chelsea Handler, star of the Chelsea show on Netflix, took the opportunity to discuss the state of the first couple’s marriage.
“That hand thing was great,” the comedian told the audience.
Handler than proceeded to tell the audience her hopes for the First Lady.
“I have a fantasy, I want Melania just to finally just come out, divorce him,” Handler explained. “She would be an American hero, we would embrace her if she just said, ‘listen, this guy’s disgusting and I know all of his dirty secrets and I’m willing to tell everybody.'”
The panel then had a discussion about the rumors that Melania had been planning to divorce Donald Trump if he didn’t win the race.
Earlier in the interview, Handler recommended laughter as a cure for the fantastical news coming out of Donald Trump’s White House.
“I know it’s a very scary and dangerous time, but you have to just take as much enjoyment out of it as you possibly can,” Handler prescribed. “It is really entertaining and it’s like a great reality show every single day.”
Whoopie Goldberg replied, “it’s the craziest thing I think anybody has seen.”
“Just when you think it can’t get any worse, it does,” Handler worried. “I don’t know, I mean I really don’t know, every time I think it’s the end, it’s not.”
No US President has ever gone through a divorce while in office.
Only one president has ever been a divorcee. President Ronald Reagan was the third husband of Academy Award winning actress Jane Wyman during the 1940s. They divorced in 1949 and Reagan married Nancy Davis in 1952.

Millennials are moving to Trump-backing states — and the GOP should be terrified: columnist
Millennial voters are substantively more progressive than older generations of voters, but their political power has been diluted by the fact that many of them have been concentrated in cities in deep-blue states.
However, The Atlantic's Derek Thompson argues that this is about to change because more millennials are leaving the big blue-state cities to move out to metro areas in key states such as Arizona, Georgia and Texas.
"The five fastest-growing metros of the past few years -- Dallas, Phoenix, Houston, Atlanta, and Orlando, Florida -- are in states won by Trump," he writes. "The other metro areas with a population of at least 1 million that grew by at least 1.5 percent last year were Las Vegas; Austin, Texas; Orlando, Florida; Raleigh, North Carolina; Jacksonville, Florida; Charlotte, North Carolina; San Antonio; Tampa, Florida; and Nashville, Tennessee. All of those metros are in red or purple states."
‘The man who sold America’: Mitch McConnell’s mountain of political sins catalogued in devastating new profile
Mitch McConnell finally has the power he's longed for since he was a 22-year-old intern for Sen. John Sherman, but his ruthless march to become Senate majority leader has seen him abandon almost all of his stated principles -- and earned him a lot of enemies.
The Kentucky Republican has been unpopular in his home state for years, but this summer has seen his approval rating plunge to 18 percent after MSNBC's Joe Scarborough tarred and feathered him with the nickname "Moscow Mitch," and he's increasingly seen as "the man who sold America," reported Rolling Stone.
Sarah Sanders rages on Fox News that the ‘out-of-control’ media is ‘making stuff up’ about Trump
In her new gig as a Fox News contributor, former White House spokesperson Sarah Huckabee Sanders complained to host Sean Hannity that the "out-of-control" media makes "stuff up" about Donald Trump because they hate him for winning in 2016.
Sanders, who once told reporters that "countless" FBI agents had lost confidence in James Comey only to later tell investigators from special counsel Robert Mueller's office that she made it up, complained to the Fox host about the press being untrustworthy.
