“The View” Slams Donald Trump For Vladimir Putin “Killer” Comment (VIDEO)
“The View” co-hosts on Monday slammed Donald Trump for saying the United States has “killers” like Vladimir Putin. Check out the video below.
During the Super Bowl pre-game show on Sunday, FOX featured an interview with President Trump in which he discussed his support for Putin. When Bill O’Reilly pointed out that Putin is a “killer,” Trump responded, “There are a lot of killers. We’ve got a lot of killers. What, you think our country’s so innocent?” The comment received criticism on both sides of the political aisle, and now from the talk show’s panelists as well.
Sunny Hostin said the statement was “pretty shocking,” but also admitted, “It made me really think, because as the president, he certainly has intelligence that we don’t have… Has he gotten some intelligence reports that people in our government are killing other people?”
Joy Behar argued, “Imagine if Barack Obama said anything like that. They would’ve had him up for treason.” Jedediah Bila said it was “beyond shocking” for her. She explained, “It is jaw-dropping. To me, it was disgusting. It was disgusting to create a moral equivalence between the United State [and Russia].”
After rattling off some atrocities committed by the Russian government, she stated, “You have to ask yourself, if Donald Trump has a hard time criticizing those things, what does he actually stand for?” Paula Faris lamented the Trump-fueled news cycle and its repeated scandals, observing, “We’re going to be talking about something else by the end of the day.”
And all of this led to Whoopi Goldberg once again complaining that President Trump isn’t being very presidential. “They did not vote for him to poop all over the Constitution. They just didn’t,” she said of his supporters, adding, “I think we should all just mail those Constitution cards to the president.” Watch below.
