(ABC)

On Thursday’s “The View,” the co-hosts reacted to Anthony Scaramucci vowing to go after White House leakers and seemingly suggesting Reince Priebus is the leaker. Watch the video below.

Since Scaramucci joined the Trump administration as communications director, he has said he will fire anyone who is caught leaking stories to the media. And on Wednesday night, he wrote in a since-deleted tweet, “In light of the leak of my financial disclosure info which is a felony. I will be contacting @FBI and the @TheJusticeDept. #swamp @Reince45.”

On the ABC talk show, Whoopi Goldberg noted, “People took this as a warning to chief of staff Reince Priebus.” She then showed a clip of Scaramucci from Thursday morning, in which he further said, “When I put out a tweet and I put Reince’s name in a tweet, they’re all making the assumption that it’s him because journalists know who the leakers are. So if Reince wants to explain he’s not a leaker, let him do that.”

Goldberg then pointed out, “The other crazy part of this is the information was not leaked. It was gotten because of the Freedom of Information Act and somebody requested it.” She further said of Scaramucci, “He seems to want a lot of attention.” Joy Behar commented, “He has a big personality. He’s kind of charismatic in his way. I was watching him this morning. He doesn’t shut up.” She even added, “I guarantee you, the Donald is going to be threatened by him very shortly, and he’ll be going the Spicer way.”

Other panelists, however, suggested Trump is happy with Scaramucci’s television presence. And after some jokes about his nicknames, such as “Mooch,” Goldberg remarked, “However you call him, he’s having trouble. He’s having trouble keeping his story straight.” That led to a new installment of “The Forgetful Bunch,” which featured a montage of contradictory TV clips “starring the Mooch.”

Jedediah Bila later remarked of Scaramucci, “He likes to shake things up and Donald likes to shake things up. He has a problem with Reince, which tells me Donald Trump has a problem with Reince.” She also concluded that Saramucci himself is the leak by publicly naming Priebus. Added Behar, “Trump’s constantly leaking also.” Watch the video below.
