“The View” host Whoopi Goldberg said “God bless SNL” after “Saturday Night Live” portrayed President Donald Trump’s advisor Kellyanne Conway as Glenn Close’s character from “Fatal Attraction.”

On Monday, the co-host of the talk show weighed in on the controversial “SNL” skit that many in the media labeled “sexist.” The overridding opinion from Goldberg, Jedediah Bila, Sunny Hostin and Sarah Haines was that it was “great.” (RELATED: The Women Of ‘The View’ Turn On Kellyanne Conway: You Sound ‘Delusional’)


“It’s so good, “Hostin responded after the show aired a clip of the skit. “It’s satire though, it’s supposed to be sort of pushing the bounds right. It’s supposed to make you uncomfortable.” (RELATED: Media Bubble Horrified As ‘SNL’ Turns Jake Tapper’s Relationship With Kellyanne Conway Into A Violent, Sexual Mess)

She then launched into disturbing quotes from the movie, before adding, “but seriously, I thought it was really, really well, well done.”

“It’s really funny,” Bila added. “Between this and Melissa McCarthy as Spicey [Sean Spicer] it is great. Look if  SNL is picking on you, you’ve arrived. So, any political figure out there you should be …if it were me I would be loving it, and laughing at it. If you can’t laugh at yourself, you’ve got a problem. It’s so great.”

“I think it’s a great thing…every president gets this,” Goldberg exclaimed. “No one is immune. I think this is something that he [Trump]….listen the more you fight it, the more fun it’s going to be to do it to you.”

“Inquiring minds re: #SNL: @jaketapper & I spoke this morning just before brunch time. No boiling bunnies on the menu,” Conway tweeted in response to the SNL skit.
