“The View” co-hosts on Thursday reacted to Donald Trump calling it a “witch hunt” after a special prosecutor was appointed to investigate his ties to Russia. Check out the video below.

On Wednesday, it was announced former FBI director Robert Mueller will lead a probe into whether Trump’s campaign colluded with Russia to win the presidential election. Trump released a statement saying he “look[ed] forward to this matter concluding quickly.” He was much angrier, however, on Thursday morning, tweeting, “This is the single greatest witch hunt of a politician in American history! With all of the illegal acts that took place in the Clinton campaign & Obama Administration, there was never a special counsel appointed!”

Now on the ABC talk show, Whoopi Goldberg began by saying, “Well, hasn’t it been a week of bombshells?!” Commented Joy Behar, “I feel like we’re all starting to come out of this coma and seeing the light… Things are starting to look like we’re going to live. We’re going to get through this illness.”

Sunny Hostin was thrilled with the selection of Mueller, noting he has “so much credibility” and has been ordered to press charges as he sees fit. “That was put in there intentionally to warn the White House that they are serious, and I felt ‘finally,'” said the attorney.

Jedediah Bila admitted, “My concern is transparency in this process.” Her fear is that whether there’s an indictment or not, Americans “won’t actually know how they got to this conclusion.” Hostin stressed, however, “What people need to understand is these investigations can be compromised if you put something out there.”

In addition to the “witch hunt” tweet, Goldberg also brought up the “current resident in the White House” saying in a graduation speech on Wednesday that “no politician has been treated worse or more unfairly” than him. “I did want to point out there have been a couple,” the moderator said, going on, “Let’s talk about, I don’t know, Barack Obama? I make this point specifically about this man who for six years, almost seven years, insisted he wasn’t an American… You been in what, 120 days, and you think it’s rough now?”

Quipped Sara Haines, “President Lincoln had half the country secede from the Union!” And Bila pointed out, “Even George W. Bush. This is a guy, comedians made fun of him all the time. Media was tough on him. This job is not supposed to be easy. You’re supposed to be challenged.”

She went on to say about Trump, “He thinks the media is supposed to be your friend. Stop being a crybaby about it… It drives me crazy that he goes to these events where he’s supposed to be paying tribute to someone else, but he makes it about himself…. You work for us, not the other way around. You’re not there to complain. You look petty. Just stop.”

“He’s preaching to the choir,” Behar said of Trump’s supporters. Agreed Hostin, “When he’s touting this witch hunt stuff, and people are believing him.” Added Goldberg, “They’re willingly ignorant, I believe.” But Bila wasn’t sure Trump really does still have a strong following. “Don’t believe the polling. I talk to Republicans, conservatives every day who live in frustration with this man,” she said. Watch the videos below.
