On Tuesday’s “The View,” the co-hosts reacted to the deadly bombing at Ariana Grande’s Manchester concert. Watch the video below.

As Gossip Cop reported, explosions went off at the end of Grande’s concert on Monday night. Police say 22 people were killed and at least 59 were injured. Grande has since canceled the rest of her tour, and wrote on Twitter that she is “broken.” Everyone seems broken by this tragedy, and the women on “The View” were no exception.

Whoopi Goldberg began the live episode by saying, “We want to start by saying our hearts go out to everyone impacted by yesterday’s terrorist attack in Manchester.” She went on, “This is the season where concerts are starting to happen. What needs to happen here?” Joy Behar noted the alleged suicide bomber was not in the actual arena, but just outside of it, and suggested, “Maybe they need to start looking into the whole area.”

“I wonder about my family. My kids want to go to concerts,” Sunny Hostin said, adding, “They describe these as soft targets. So I wonder, what do you do? Do you change your life?” She answered, “And I don’t think you do, because I think that’s what they want. They want us to change our society… We can’t let them have that satisfaction.”

Jedediah Bila brought up a report that claimed the alleged attacker was known to authorities. “We find there was a trail that was not followed. The first step is to follow the trail,” she said. She agreed with Hostin that “we can’t let terrorists dictate” how to live. That said, she pointed out that ISIS has “repeatedly said” it will go after these “soft targets,” and as such, we must “amp up security.” Still, she acknowledged, “You can’t prevent everything.”

Replied Hostin, “That’s why you can’t live in fear,” to which Bila said, “But you can advocate for proper security.” And that prompted Goldberg to stress that “you can’t bitch” about long lines and metal detectors that are part of those security processes. Hostin also mentioned Donald Trump’s remarks about the attack, in which he called out the “evil losers” responsible. “I just didn’t feel that was presidential enough,” she said.

Goldberg suggested that the president “can’t win” in this situation, and Bila argued he was speaking the “language” of his supporters and how people at home may be feeling. Goldberg countered, however, “I want my president to be one step above. I don’t want them to talk like I would talk.” Check out the video below.
