Monday on ABC’s “The View,” while discussing if Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump should go after his opponent Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton for how she attacked the women who accused her husband former President Bill Clinton of sexual misconduct, co-host Joy Behar said she would “turn on the women” if her husband was cheating.
Partial transcript as follows:

KELLYANNE CONWAY: No, I wouldn’t.
JOY BEHAR: I would.
