Onetime White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci joined the cast of “The View” on Friday to discuss Donald Trump, former FBI director James Comey and the ongoing investigation into his longtime personal attorney Michael Cohen.
Discussing Thursday’s release of the infamous Comey memos, co-host Joy Behar noted the Trump allegedly told the former FBI director that Russian President Vladimir Putin said Russia has the best hookers.
“I have a question, didn’t Trump say he never spoke to Putin?” Behar asked.
After the co-hosts slammed Trump for telling near-constant lies to the American people, Scaramucci launched into a defense of the unconventional style.
Behar later asked Scaramucci if he believes Cohen will turn on Trump.
“I don’t think there is anything to turn on,” Scaramucci replied as the hosts reminded him that Cohen’s office was just raided by the FBI. “It may not be related to the president,” Scaramucci insisted.
The former White House communications director argued that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein reportedly told the president last week he’s not a “target” of the Cohen raid.
“You know the subject of an investigation can easily turn into the target of investigation,” “It can happen in hours.
“I do know that, but you have to understand the level of care, you know, I talked to [newly-minted Trump lawyer] Rudy [Giuliani] before I came on the show, I had lunch with Governor [Chris] Christie earlier in the week,” Scaramucci replied.
“What a group,” Behar hit back. “I would throw up that lunch in two seconds with those two.”
“I think you would turn because you’re too pretty to end up in jail,” she added.
