“The View” Reacts: Kellyanne Conway, Jake Tapper Interview On Lying (VIDEO)
On Wednesday’s “The View,” the co-hosts reacted to Kellyanne Conway’s interview with Jake Tapper about Donald Trump’s false claims. Check out the video below.
During a CNN interview on Tuesday, Tapper grilled Conway over untrue statements made by President Trump and his administration. She responded by essentially saying that shouldn’t outweigh the truths they do tell. After playing a clip, Joy Behar now exclaimed, “I want to go on Twitter and do hashtag ‘All Lies Matter.'”
Subbing for Whoopi Goldberg as the moderator, she said Trump is an “example of a liar at the top.” Commented Sunny Hostin, “What’s remarkable, though, is she didn’t say, ‘No, those are truisms.’ She didn’t deny that he was lying. She just tried to say that other things are more important.” It was then pointed out that Bill Clinton was impeached for lying under oath, prompting Behar to quip that people should “walk around with a bible” to get Trump on perjury charges, too.
“They’re saying it’s not important, that lies aren’t important,” Hostin further complained, and Sara Haines said “it’s very difficult as a citizen, as a consumer of the news” to see so many falsities. “That is a very scary thing for me,” she stated.
But Jedediah Bila tried to argue, “Every White House does this, though. They all lie.” She rattled off examples, but was accused by Hostin of making a “false equivalence.” As the back-and-forth heated up, though, Behar cut it off to go to commercial. Watch below.
