In the Monday episode of "The View," female campaigners discussed the federal investigation into allegations that MP Matt Gaetz (R-FL) had an alleged sexual relationship with a 17-year-old and allegedly paid other women to have sex .
During this discussion, the radically liberal cohost Joy Behar turned the situation into a ridiculous attack on former President Donald Trump, whom she obsessively despises.
Backstory: MP Matt Gaetz, who is reportedly under federal investigation, tells Tucker Carlson that the "underage girl" story is a "lie."
Behar hits Gaetz and Trump
"You know, it's interesting, a point I want to make besides the fact that women never do this noticeably," said Behar. “I mean, he had a picture of a naked girl with a hula hoop that he showed to the guys in Congress. This is not something a woman would do, a picture of a naked man with a hula hoop around Mr. Happy. I don't see that. "
"But after saying that, I really think that Trump, I think people like Matt Gaetz have been encouraged," she added. “You know, I mean, if Dad does, I can. So you know there is a reason. Trump enables this type of behavior, and he went along with it. And I think he's really in big trouble if even Fox turns him on. "
"How do people get these jobs?" asked her colleague Sara Haines, referring to how he got into Congress.
"Any idiot can be elected to Congress," said Conservative cohost Meghan McCain. "Some of the stupidest people in American history are in Congress and some of them are now."

McCain added that Gaetz always had a reputation for being weird in Congress, citing his voice against the sex trafficking law last year. She pointed out that Democrats have a fair share of creepy people in Congress as well.
"He should definitely resign just like Cuomo," said McCain. "I think Eric Swalwell, who was accused and did not deny having slept with a Chinese spy, was not removed from the intelligence committee – I don't see why this isn't a major scandal for Democrats."
