Two of the co-hosts of The View, Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar, confronted Donald Trump’s campaign manager Kellyanne Conway during her Wednesday-morning appearance on the show. Goldberg and Conway sparred for most of the first segment about Donald Trump’s apparent flip-flopping stance on polls and the media, while Behar eventually told Conway that she sounds “delusional.”

Conway started out by speaking of her “love” for a recent ABC News poll, which shows Trump barely beating Clinton 46 percent to 45 percent. She appeared to be making the comment repeatedly because The View is an ABC program. “It’s our favorite poll,” Conway said, before Goldberg interjected, “Wait, didn’t you guys say the polls were rigged?” Conway replied that she would never say that, since she loves polls.

“Actually your man did say that,” Goldberg said. “Your man said for a while that the polls were rigged. I’m just saying, that’s what he said.” Goldberg went on to ask Conway whether she loves the media now, as well. Conway replied that she’s “always been pro-media.” When asked if she remembered how Trump called the media crooked, she retorted, “Not all.”

“He said, the media is crooked, the polls are crooked, everything was crooked, and now he’s doing better because they’re neck-in-neck, and I’m just wondering, will it be crooked again if he slips in the polls? Are we back to crooked?” Goldberg replied.

Conway and the co-hosts of The View then talked about the FBI’s investigation into Clinton’s emails, as well as the connection to the Anthony Weiner sexting scandal. Later, when talking about Trump’s stance on nuclear weapons, Behar told Conway, “His rhetoric is off the wall on this topic.” Behar went on to say, “I like you but I think right here, you are being delusional.”

Behar told the audience of Conway, “This is a nice Italian girl, and she scares me.”
