On Friday, Behar mocked the former president for telling Univision — which had asked about his claims of a Justice Department and FBI “weaponized” against him — that he could go after his opponents if he saw them “doing well” and beating him “very badly.”
“If I happen to be president and ... I say ‘go down and indict them,’ mostly they would be out of business, they’d be out of the election,” said Trump, who also described the criminal indictments he himself faces as “pathetic.”
Behar said the former president is “losing it” and asked her show’s panel whether voters would respond to his “constant whining about being a victim.”
Co-host Alyssa Farah Griffin claimed that Trump, who has pleaded not guilty in his criminal cases, is running for president for two reasons: to “stay out of jail” and to “get revenge on his enemies.”
The show’s panel went on to name people formerly in Trump’s corner who have turned into critics, before Behar asked if her co-hosts could be on his enemies list.
“What about us?” she said. “Try it. Go ahead, try it. We have this show every day, OK, Donald?”
