As might be expected, the ladies of The View were all over White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci’s comments about White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon pleasuring himself orally.
With host Joy Behar taking the lead, the various panelists had multiple theories about why Scaramucci — whose job is to control White House messaging — blew up an evening that should have been dedicated to pushing Trumpcare with talk about “c*ck sucking.”
“There’s so many crazy things happening this week,” Behar began before turning to Scaramucci’s profane interview with the New Yorker’s Ryan Lizza.
“The new communications director, who I call ‘El Mooche,’ really laid into White House bigwigs in an uncensored interview. He called Chief of Staff Reince Priebus a ‘blanking paranoiac schizophrenic,'” Behar explained.
“He also said, ‘I’m not Steve Bannon, blanking my own blank,'” she continued. “Hello! Fill in the blanks. I can’t believe what he said, but suffice it to say, Bannon must have a Craftsmatic adjustable bed,” causing co-host Sara Haines to chime in, “Yeah, my parents have one.”
ABC political commentator Tara Setmayer had her own take, stating, “If he could do that he wouldn’t need to work.”

‘He’s empty’: Psychiatrist warns Trump is in a ‘psychotic-like state’
Dr. Lance Dodes warned that things were going to get worse under President Donald Trump in 2017. That's precisely what happened.
"Is that what we're seeing this week?" MSNBC host Lawrence O'Donnell ased the psychiatrist.
"Absolutely. Donald Trump, because he has a fundamental need to be all-powerful and all loved, can't stand challenges," Dr. Dodes said. "And the nature of democracy is that it challenges people. We have more than one opinion. So the more -- it was predictable once he got into a position where people would challenge him, there are two parties, he would become more unhinged.
Elementary school cheer squad parents raffling off an AM-15 automatic weapon as a fundraiser
Just weeks after a mass shooting in Dayton, Ohio killed nine people, only 200 miles away in Richmond, the cheer squad is selling raffle tickets to sell a semi-automatic gun.
Fox19 reported Wednesday that the Junior Lions Cheer Team have infuriated Heather Chilton, who's 7-year-old daughter is on the squad for the first time.
"This is absurd, you're having elementary kids sell your AR-15. Why?" Chilton said. "I highly doubt that something would happen with the gun, but say it did. Say one of the kids in the high school got a hold of it — got the AR-15 or AM-15 and shot up a school with it, and I'm the one that sold the raffle ticket to his dad?"
I think Trump’s people sit around ‘thinking up new ways to be cruel’: Senator
On Wednesday's edition of MSNBC's "All In," Sen. Mazie Hirono (D-HI) tore into the Trump administration for its treatment of migrant children, as yet more reports come in of children being denied basic services in squalid conditions, and as Trump considers ways to get around the federal consent decree placing limits on how long they can be detained.
"We already know from so many child specialists that detaining children in these kinds of facilities does irreparable damage to them," said Hirono. "There are alternatives to family detention this administration could care less about ... the only way to get around the consent agreement is by getting around it by proposing or having this rule, which will be immediately challenged. They want to detain families indefinitely, children indefinitely, held in situations that do them absolutely no good when there are alternatives."
