The View shreds thrice-divorced Giuliani’s hypocritical attacks on Stormy: ‘Trump appeared in skin flicks!’
Joy Behar (ABC)

The co-hosts of "The View" came together to trash Rudy Giuliani for questioning Stormy Daniels' credibility because she had made a living as a pornographic actress.


Conservative Meghan McCain went first, saying she found the former porn actress highly credible in her claims against President Donald Trump -- and she challenged the former New York City mayor's own morality.

"We interviewed Stormy Daniels on the show, and James Comey and Michael Avenatti, all within a day of each other, and I found her by far the most credible and well spoken," McCain said. "I want to say that first and foremost. There's no reason anybody should question this woman's credibility."

McCain then listed the thrice-divorced Giuliani's checkered marital history, which includes a marriage to his second cousin, and a years-long estrangement from his own children.

"Let's come with a moral judgment on people's industries," McCain said.

McCain said she had written a book that had introduced her to a number of sex workers, and she's stayed in touch with one -- who sent a message in response to Giuliani's slut-shaming insults.

"I was messaging her about this, and she said, 'Sex work is work, and like any other business, it's bad with laws criminalizing consensual, transactional sex,'" McCain said. "He sounds like the typical cheap 'blank' that can't afford our services."

Co-host Joy Behar said Trump's lawyer had no standing to question someone for appearing in pornographic videos.

"I have a factoid, I didn't even know this," Behar said. "Apparently, in 1994, 2000 and 2002, Trump made cameo appearances in several soft-core 'Playboy' skin flicks -- Trump himself. That's what my research says. He appeared on a 'Playboy' cover in 1990, so Rudy, you better get your act together."
