The View Trump Changing Comey Story


On Friday’s “The View,” the co-hosts reacted to Donald Trump changing the story on why James Comey was fired. Watch the video below.

On the ABC talk show, Joy Behar said the president’s surrogates are on the “same page,” but that appears to be a different page than Trump himself. The administration initially said Comey was fired after a recommendation from the deputy attorney general, but Trump is now saying he was going to fire him regardless, in part due to the Russia investigation.

“Is Donald basically saying, ‘who are you going to believe, me or my surrogates’?” Behar asked. Jedediah Bila commented, “It’s like they all went to a meeting and he was supposed to go and didn’t show up.” She argued, “Something’s happening in this White house where they’re not talking to each other… That doesn’t instill confidence.”

Guest co-host Hasan Minhaj responded, “I think people are talking, but not listening.” He also pointed out that on “Celebrity Apprentice,” he at least fired Lil Jon to his face, but “didn’t have the same respect for Comey.” Remarked Behar, “He almost thinks he’s still on ‘Celebrity Apprentice.'”

Sara Haines suggested Trump changing the story is “his big flip-off to everyone… He did that for all of us to know he’s in charge.” Paula Faris also questioned why Trump wouldn’t just “welcome an investigation” into Russia if he and his campaign really are innocent. “If this is this attempt to get Russia to go away, it’s backfiring,” she stated.
