On Tuesday’s “The View,” the co-hosts reacted to Donald Trump cutting off his interview with John Dickerson and praising Andrew Jackson. Watch below.

During an on-camera interview with Dickerson of CBS, Trump was pressed on his claims that Barack Obama wiretapped him. The president ultimately abruptly ended the chat, waving his hand for Dickerson to exit, and saying, “It’s enough. Thank you.” Now on the ABC talk show, the panelists discussed Trump’s behavior and his statement during the chat that he “doesn’t stand by anything.”

Whoopi Goldberg remarked, “When he said he doesn’t stand by anything, I have to say, I agree! Is that something you ever thought you’d hear?” Sunny Hostin admitted, “I do wonder if we’re seeing a shift, because he’s the guy who always doubled-down” on the wiretapping claims previously. She suggested perhaps “now he realizes maybe we know these are lies.”

But Sara Haines was more upset by another aspect, pointing out that when Trump is “speaking and thinking at the same time, he’s rambling on and they’re nonsensical” comments. She explained, “I don’t know what he meant and I don’t know if he knew what he meant. It was concerning to me, I’m not trying to be mean, mentally.” Joy Behar exclaimed in response, “I’m trying to be mean!”

“There’s something wrong. There’s something seriously wrong with this man… The Republican party is enabling the mental illness on a daily basis,” she declared. Jedediah Bila, however, countered, “I wouldn’t go as far as saying mental illness.” Rather, she thought his reaction indicated that he’s “not being briefed” and there’s “internal controversy” among his advisers.

Bila argued, “It looks more than anything like a guy who’s unprepared for that question. He should’ve known that was coming. There’s a very easy answer to that.” The discussion about the president’s mental health continued, however, when Goldberg brought up Trump’s comments about Andrew Jackson and the Civil War. “You can’t make this up,” she marveled over his apparent ignorance.

But everyone was further alarmed by the claim that Trump TALKS to Jackson’s PORTRAIT. Seriously. Check out the videos below.
