“The View” co-hosts ripped Sarah Huckabee Sanders and mocked Sean Spicer on Thursday. Check out the video below.

Spicer, Donald Trump’s press secretary, was allegedly hiding in the bushes in the wake of the Comey firing earlier this week, and supposedly only willing to talk with the lights out. And on Wednesday, Melissa McCarthy again impersonated Spicer in a new “SNL” promo. This led the panelists to wonder if all the pressure is getting to him.

But Spicer was on reserve duty Wednesday, leading deputy press secretary Huckabee Sanders to lead the daily press briefing, in which she said Comey was fired for committing “atrocities.” Of course, he did nothing of the sort, given the actual definition of “atrocity,” which Goldberg read aloud on the the talk show. “Not for nothing babe, here’s some real atrocities. The Holocaust, atrocity,” she declared, rattling off other tragedies like 9/11, the Rwandan genocide and Sandy Hook massacre.

“Those are atrocities. Overstepping your bounds? No so much,” Goldberg went on. “So I just want to make sure the person who’s giving the the information, communicating [is right].” The moderator also wondered if Huckabee Sanders will be taking over for Spicer permanently “if he’s having a breakdown in the bushes!”

Cracked Joy Behar, “I think he’s hiding from Trump!” Jedediah Bila acknowledged, “He has a tough job. I wouldn’t want to get on TV every day and do what he does.” And Sunny Hostin commented, “There was just this level of confidence you [previously] had in your press secretary, and now he’s hiding in the bushes.” Bila agreed, saying it initially seemed Spicer had it “together.”

But now both he and Huckabee Sanders are making missteps. “If you take a job like this and you’re going to be front and center, you need to think before you speak,” Bila said. Watch the video below.
