The View Trump Obama Leaks

(ABC)

On Tuesday’s “The View,” the co-hosts reacted to Donald Trump blaming Barack Obama for the leaks and protests against his administration. Watch below.

In an new interview, the current president suggested the former president is responsible for the governmental leaks plaguing his presidency, as well as all the organized protests across the country. Now on the ABC talk show, a skeptical Whoopi Goldberg pointed out that Obama has been vacationing, took his daughter to a Broadway show, “and still somehow found time to lead an underground resistance? It’s like, c’mon, now!”

Joy Behar joked that she just spoke to Obama this morning, and he responded, “Donald who?” Sara Haines also argued, “If there’s ever been a time Obama doesn’t give a hoot about that office, it’s right now. He needs to recoup.” And Sunny Hostin pointed out that, with the town halls and other demonstrations, “It’s just grassroots, people getting together.”

Jedediah Bila said, “I think he’s conflating, though, President Obama, who’s not involved at all, and organizations that once backed Obama.” She went on to say, “You can’t blame the former president who is now out of office and enjoying his life.” And the right-leaning panelist also said the “bigger issue for me” is Trump objecting to protests.

“I may not agree with any of these groups’ agenda, but I will defend to the death their right to protest,” she insisted. The group went on to discuss former president George W. Bush slamming Trump in an interview on Monday. Check out the video below. NOTE: The video is no longer available.
