After President Donald Trump attacked Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), the women of “The View” noted that his phrasing was downright “infantile.”
“Whoa,” co-host Joy Behar said after Whoopi Goldberg read Trump’s tweet aloud. Members of the audience could be heard saying “wow” after the tweet appeared on the screen behind the women.
“What is that tweet implying, may I ask?” Behar requested. “What do you think? Is it sexual favors?”
Sara Haines noted that the language used was obviously loaded, but “it’s a little ironic in a sexual harassment conversation to use that.”
“I think it’s disgusting!” Sunny Hostin exclaimed. “I mean, if my 15-year-old tweeted that out about one of his classmates, his phone would be snatched. He would be in so much trouble at home. And we’ve got the United States president doing that? I’m like, it’s so — it’s so beneath the dignity of the office. It’s so infantile.”
Goldberg harkened back to Roy Moore, saying that she hopes the Ethics Committee investigates him but also that they should investigate Trump.
Meghan McCain noted that yesterday she came home and turned on the news only to see coverage of Trump’s tweets and the fight between press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders and the press.
“And I’m like, there was a terror attack in New York today!” McCain said.
“And wildfires in California!” Behar chimed in.
“Why aren’t we talking about those?” McCain replied.
