On Tuesday’s “The View,” the co-hosts slammed Donald Trump for calling the media an “enemy” of the people. Check out the video below.

As Gossip Cop reported, last Friday Trump said the media is the “enemy of the American people.” He was widely criticized by journalists and celebs alike. Now the panelists on the ABC talk show slammed him, too.

“I guess he hasn’t figured out media scrutiny comes with the job,” said Whoopi Goldberg, noting how Trump regularly criticized Barack Obama whn he was president. Now that he himself is president, “I don’t know why it’s so difficult for him to understand,” she said.

Goldberg also stated, “This country, whatever you think of America, people come here so they can bitch. You know what I mean? Because you don’t have these rights in other countries, where you can say how you feel about a president..She even had a small version of the Constitution at the table with her, and read aloud the First Amendment.

That prompted Sunny Hostin to note, “It’s fascinating to me that our forefathers had the foresight to put that into the Constitution.” As others have observed, Joy Behar pointed out, “Nixon also attacked the press. He attacked the unnamed sources, the leaks. The same thing that’s going on now.”

“The press is absolutely essential in this particular environment when the president of the United States is a pathological liar, has deals in Russia,” Behar insisted. And Jedediah Bila said, “I think everyone needs to stand together on free press.” She argued, however, “There’s a segment of the country that wants freedom of the press, but they do feel betrayed by the press.”

Bila’s suggestion of media bias, however, led to an argument with her colleagues. Watch below.
