The ladies of “The View” said Monday they are not pleased that there are no women senators working on President Donald Trump’s healthcare bill.

During a panel discussion with Democratic New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, a graphic was displayed of the 13 senators who are working on the senate’s version of the replacement to Obamacare bill that the House passed last week. (RELATED: Fight Breaks Out On ‘The View’ Over Why Hillary Lost)

“When you look at the photo of the people that are deciding, working on this bill, look at the 13 senators…they’re all men,” Sunny Hostin exclaimed. (RELATED: Bill Maher Skewers Hillary Clinton For Returning To The Spotlight)

“Do any of them have female genitalia,” Whoopi Goldberg jumped in. “Maybe we’re missing something.”

“White men…white men,” Joy Behar responded.

The co-hosts then asked Gillibrand if it concerned her that no females were working on the bill.

“It does,” the senator responded. “Because women do have a lot to lose. We were really discriminated against by health care companies without Obamacare. We were charged more being a mom was considered a pre-existing condition for some people.”

“The fact that we would be charged more because we are women because we might get pregnant and when we are pregnant that was being considered a pre-existing condition,” she added. “And it’s offensive and it’s troubling that there are no women.”
