On Monday’s “The View,” the co-hosts revealed their favorite real and fake presidents in honor of President’s Day. Watch below!

“Who is your all-time favorite real commander in chief?” Whoopi Goldberg asked her colleagues, with emphasis on “real.” Joy Behar quipped, “Well, let’s see — I dated Lincoln.” She then more seriously replied, “I love Obama.”

Sunny Hostin agreed, “Hands down for me, Barack Obama.” Sara Haines amusingly revealed that her pick is William Taft, not because of his policies, but because their birthdays are days part. Jedediah Bila then said she’s a “big fan” of Ronald Reagan.

“My reason is because he was able to persuade people who didn’t agree with him,” she explained. As for Goldberg, she shared, “I’m an FDR girl. FDR understood that he had to take care of his people, that without Americans there is no America.”

Behar went on to give a shout-out to John F. Kennedy for how he handled the Cuban Missile Crisis. At the time, she was in college and fearful of dying in a nuclear attack. “I said ‘I don’t want to die a virgin,’ ’cause I was at that time,” the comedian confessed.

The panelists then named their favorite “fake” presidents from movies and television. Hostin said, “I would’ve chosen Fitz from ‘Scandal,’ but he’s a cheater.” Others named included Harrison Ford in Air Force One and Bill Pullman in Independence Day. After a commercial break, “The View” honored Obama for both the holiday and Black History month, while also slamming the current president, Donald Trump. Check out the video below.
