The co-hosts of “The View” ripped into failed, one-term, twice-impeached former president Donald Trump on Thursday, mocking him and making fun of his mounting legal problems a day after New York Attorney General Letitia James announced she was filing a civil lawsuit against the Trump Organization, the ex-president, and his three oldest children, Don Jr., Ivanka, and Eric.
Additionally, Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity Wednesday night that he had declassified thousands of documents he illegally took from the White House by “thinking” about them.
That led Whoopi Goldberg to close her eyes as if thinking, which caused co-host Joy Behar to ask:
Co-host Sunny Hostin, who is a former federal prosecutor, noted:
“It’s a 220-page lawsuit, and it lays out his financial statements for years and years and years. And it also says that he wildly inflated the worth of nearly every one of his properties and overall. That lawsuit said that 11 of his annual financial statements included more than 200 false and misleading asset valuations. You can get put in jail for just doing that one thing, just one.”
Behar added that since Trump loves to exaggerate everything, he’ll likely do the same thing when he gets to prison:
“He’ll go to jail and be, like, it’s the biggest, most beautiful cell I’ve ever been in. 14,000-square-foot cell I’m in. One more thing. you know, when Rosie O’Donnell went after him, everybody remembers that, right? The thing that got him really ticked off, not the hair thing. He didn’t care about that. It was because she went after the money. She said he doesn’t have the money. He’s a liar and an exaggerator and that made him so vicious. He was like a vicious animal. He really was.”
