“The View” co-hosts got into an argument on Monday over whether Donald Trump lies more or as much as past presidents. Watch the heated video below.

The New York Times printed an exhaustive list of Trump’s lies, which prompted Whoopi Goldberd to remark on the ABC talk show, “It’s a lot of lies for somebody who’s only been in the gig for 156 days.” Joy Behar cracked, “The only days he’s not lied is when he’s playing golf. He’s too busy to lie.”

When Sunny Hostin suggested, “Maybe it’s not even that he intentionally lies. Maybe he believes what he’s saying,” Behar shot back, “You know what? Then he’s psychotic!” But Hostin and Sara Haines thought Trump might be “paranoid,” like with his claims about Barack Obama wiretapping him. Jedediah Bila said Trump’s “contradictory” tweets make you wonder what to believe, but went on to compliment him for catering to his base.

“I think he’s becoming politically savvy, and in the moment he tells people what he thinks,” she said, prompting objections from Behar. Bila held her ground, insisting, “The guy wouldn’t have won the election if he wasn’t somewhat savvy,” while the comedienne insisted Trump has “short-term memory loss.” It was after that the conversation took a turn.

Bila said to her colleagues, “You realize you could do this with any president? I could [make a list of lies] with Hillary Clinton right now. I could do it with Obama right here.” Goldberg immediately interrupted, saying, “No, no, no. Every candidate that we’ve ever had has stretched here or stretched there. This is pathological.”

Bila still insisted, “I have heard so many lies come out of politicians. I have yet to see a politician I wouldn’t call deceptive and a liar.” In response, Behar urged, “Make up the list for Clinton and Obama.” Bila said she had a list for Obama “right here,” prompting Behar to shoot back, “It’s one card. Obama was there for eight years. This guy’s there a few months.”

“There’s plenty more than that,” Bila swore, adding, “I promise you that if most in media had a hunger to point out President Obama’s lies or Hillary Clinton’s lies or Bill Clinton’s lies, for which he was impeached, by the way, you would have lists like that circulating everywhere.”

At this point, Hostin was ready to explode, prompting Goldberg to tell her to “calm down!” The moderator then challenged Bila, saying, “Jed, what I will say to you before we move on, is that if you can show, if you can actually go outside of your former job and put a list together, I would look at it. Because I will tell you that the amount of bull that this man has put out in 156 days is nothing you will never not ever find with any president.”

“Not with Bush, either one of them, Clinton, Reagan. Nothing, nothing like this. There has never been anything like that. This is a unique individual. That’s all I’m gonna say about him,” Goldberg concluded, ending the tense discussion. Check out the video below. NOTE: The video is no longer available.
