White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders appeared on ABC’s "The View". Co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar made sure her truth-twisting for President Donald Trump didn’t go unchecked.

“Is the media not supposed to report on the fact that 95 percent of what [Trump] says is a lie?” Behar asked Sanders when she tried to question the media for negative coverage of the Trump administration.

Sanders deflected by claiming Behar was forwarding a “false narrative.” Behar responded, “It’s from PolitiFact.”

Goldberg got in on the action too. She highlighted that the president championed the conspiracy that President Barack Obama wasn’t born in the United States for an obscene amount of time.

Goldberg also challenged Sanders about the president’s shameless contradictory statements about, well, almost everything.

“Come on! It’s a lie!” Goldberg finally said in exasperation.
