On Monday’s “The View,” the co-hosts reacted to Donald Trump’s trip abroad, specifically his speech in Saudi Arabia and Melania Trump slapping his hand away in Israel. Watch the video below.

The First Couple touched down in Israel this morning, and cameras captured them disembarking from Air Force One. At one moment, the president appeared to reach for his wife’s hand, but it looked as if she swatted it away. Watching the footage on the ABC talk show, Jedediah Bila said, “Every girl knows what that means!” Sunny Hostin agreed, “When you flick that wrist, you’re upset.”

More seriously, the panelists discussed the address the president gave on terrorism in Saudi Arabia on Sunday. Whoopi Goldberg showed clips of Donald’s latest remarks contradicting things he’s said in the past. “I just like the idea that all the things he bitched about [in the past] were all the things that he did [now],” she said.

Jedediah Bila, however, “liked the speech.” She explained, “My perception was the speech was tough… He mentioned terror 30 times. He took Iran to task.” Still, she added, “That’s not to say there weren’t contradictions in things he said before.”

Goldberg went on to attribute those contradictions to the president now learning about issues he was clueless on before. “What it will always turn out to be is once you get in the pool, you realize how deep it can be. You realize how you talk to people,” she said, adding, “You can’t run off and say some dumb stuff and get us all in trouble.”

And in a joke that fell flat, Joy Behar cracked, “Believe me, if they had let him loose, he’d be coloring outside the lines.” Check out the videos below.
