HLN’s S.E. Cupp was a guest host on The View today, and the table had a rousing debate about the broader political implications of President Trump‘s alleged affair with Stormy Daniels.

The porn star spoke to Inside Edition last night. And even though she kept silent when asked whether she was paid to keep quiet about the reported tryst, the ladies on ABC said they believe Daniels was laughing — as she appeared to be dying to respond.

As The View hosts mocked Trump for the scandal, Cupp noted that Daniels will soon give an interview to Jimmy Kimmel, and she wondered whether he’ll offer a similar platform to Monica Lewinsky.

“Who is going to interview her?” Cupp asked the panelists, “I’d love to see someone interview her. Her life was ruined by this affair. Bring her back.”

Cupp received some pushback from Joy Behar and Sunny Hostin, the latter saying that Daniels is relevant to the sitting president, whereas Bill Clinton is no longer in office. This retort did not earn Cupp’s approval by any measure.

“This is all going to come back to roost. Until the left really deals with the fact that feminists like Gloria Steinem and Hillary Clinton herself went after these women and attacked them and smeared them. Until that is reckoned with, you can’t say he’s not president anymore.”

Meghan McCain backed Cupp by saying there was obvious hypocrisy at play that makes Democrats an Republicans both look bad.
