Behar, on Friday, mocked the former president for telling Univision – in response to a question on his “weaponized” Justice Department and FBI claims – that he’d go after his opponents if he saw them “doing well” and beating him “very badly.”
“I say ‘go down and indict them,’ mostly, they would be out of business, they’d be out of the election,” added Trump, who later took aim at his own “pathetic indictments.”
Behar said the former president is “losing it” before asking “The View” panel whether voters will respond to his “constant whining about being a victim.”
“I just read a book about how history is cyclical and every century or so or every couple of decades, this type of thing keeps on happening. It feels like McCarthyism, it feels like J. Edgar Hoover’s list,” Hostin said.
Co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin later claimed Trump is running for president for two reasons: to “stay out of jail” and to “get revenge on his enemies.”
“The View” panel went on to list people formerly in Trump’s corner who turned into his critics before Behar asked if the co-hosts were on his enemies list.
“What about us?” she asked before adding, “Try it. Go ahead, try it. We have this show every day, okay, Donald?”
