“The View” co-hosts on Wednesday debated whether Donald Trump’s “covfefe” tweet was funny, or a sign he’s “losing it.” Check out the video below.

As Gossip Cop reported, Trump tweeted “Despite the constant negative press covfefe” without explanation. Twitter went into overdrive, with many on social media mocking the president and others trying to define the unintelligible word. Now on the ABC talk show, Whoopi Goldberg introduced a funny montage of news anchors and TV reporters trying to pronounce the term.

Afterward, the moderator quipped, “Apparently everybody but me is trying to find out what this means.” Sunny Hostin commented, “He posted this at midnight. Maybe he fell asleep mid-tweet.” But Joy Behar had a darker theory. Noting how Nixon used to talk to the portraits in the White House, she said of Trump, “I think he’s just losing it right now.”

Jedediah Bila said the reaction shows “the power of distraction.” She argued that “this guy is going to wind up doing something major,” and distract from it with some silly tweet. Hostin, though, thought Trump might’ve been trying to share a serious thought. “It seemed to me from the context, he was supposed to write ‘negative press conference'” or “coverage,” she said.

She also went on to praise Trump for his lighthearted follow-up tweet, in which he said, “Who can figure out the true meaning of ‘covfefe’??? Enjoy!” Hostin remarked, “We always say Donald Trump doesn’t have a sense of humor, but he did with this… Isn’t that one of the first times we’ve seen him kind of poke fun of himself?”

Goldberg wasn’t sure it was so funny, though, or proof of a sense of humor. Watch the video below.
