Joy Behar On President Trump: ‘He Is A Pathological Liar’

Katie Jerkovich | Entertainment Reporter

“The View” host Joy Behar called President Donald Trump a “pathological liar.”

During the show on Monday, Behar, Jedediah Bila and Sunny Hostin went after the president while the panel was discussing the recent firing of U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara. On Saturday, the attorney was fired by Trump after he refused to step down following a request by the Department of Justice that was sent to him, along with 45 other Obama-era attorneys. (RELATED: Joy Behar Compares Trump To A ‘Dictator’)

The hosts questioned his firing and suggested it was because he would’ve been in charge of any investigations into wiretapping that would have occurred at Trump Tower.  (RELATED: Joy Behar Unhinged: Trump Must Step Down Before Inauguration [VIDEO])

“Preet Bharara here in the southern district of New York is responsible for investigating things like wiretapping in New York,” Hostin said. “Trump Towers comes within his purview. I think it’s very interesting that President Trump in November asked him to stay, yet now all of the sudden he’s fired.”

“So who’s going to do the investigation,” Behar asked. “If he [Trump] gets rid of everybody who doesn’t like him or doesn’t agree with him who’s going to actually do it.”

“It was a bigger issue for me because he [Trump] told him that he wasn’t going to get rid of him,” Bila said. “And for me when I look at a president, I don’t care what party you are associated with, I want to be able to count on your word.”

“But you know that Trump, when did he keep his word,” Behar interjected. “He doesn’t keep his word on anything. It’s not right to compare Trump to other politicians that lie. It’s different. He is a pathological liar. He lies about everything. Everything.”
