During a discussion this week on "The View" about the investigation into allegations of connections between President Trump and Russia, two hosts took aim at the president and his press secretary.
Host Whoopi Goldberg repeatedly referred to President Trump as "The New Guy," and said he "does not appear to have any skin" when criticized.
"Yeah. They know who I mean," she said of the audience.
She recalled how Trump raised questions about President Obama's birthplace, criticized President George W. Bush for the Iraq War, and said President Clinton was "the worst abuser of women to sit in the Oval Office."
"If you can dish it, you have to be able to take it," Goldberg said of Trump.
Host Joy Behar slammed Press Secretary Sean Spicer for a recent exchange with a reporter, and accused him and the president of being "puppets."
She admonished Spicer for his riff directed at American Urban Radio reporter April Ryan wherein Spicer, apparently tired of hearing repeated questions about Russia, said he would be asked next about the president's use of "Russian dressing."
When host Sunny Hostin said Spicer exhibited sexism toward Ryan, Behar said the secretary was simply being a "puppet" of Trump.
Behar added that Trump, in turn, is a "puppet" of Russian President Vladimir Putin, which makes the White House appear to be the "Punch & Judy Show."
