Once Rudy Giuliani revealed that Donald Trump knew about Michael Cohen's "hush money" payment to silence Stormy Daniels, Sarah Huckabee Sanders was put in the difficult position to explain the current state of the White House. After Sanders' struggles were exposed during her most recent press briefing, the ladies of "The View" were quick to point them out.

"The View" on Sarah Sanders

With the scandal involving Donald Trump and his alleged affair with adult film star Stormy Daniels remaining a hot topic, the story took another turn earlier this week when Rudy Giuliani spilled the beans about the president's knowledge.

During an interview with Sean Hannity, Giuliani, who was recently hired as Trump's lawyer, claimed the president repaid Michael Cohen for his payout to keep Daniels quiet about the affair. Giuliani has since tried to clarify his remarks, but they've caused an even bigger headache for the White House, leading to Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders deflecting numerous questions on the issue during her press briefing on Thursday.

The struggles of Sarah Huckabee Sanders were highlighted during the May 4 edition of "The View." "It’s terrible to be laughing and now I feel bad for Sarah Sanders," co-host Whoopi Goldberg said, while adding, "This whole thing may have finally left her at a loss for words." "How is it possible that the representative for the president to the press doesn't know what is going on before Giuliani is getting on the air?" fellow co-host Sunny Hostin wondered.

Co-host Meghan McCain, the lone conservative on the panel, added her thoughts and couldn't make any excuses for Sarah Huckabee Sanders. "I just think she's being put in an untenable situation where she's not being communicated with in the right age," she said. Not stopping there, co-host Sara Haines then compared Sanders to the old Atari 8-bit video game "Frogger." "She is dodging like a bad game of Frogger," Haines said to the laughter of the audience, before explaining, "She's literally diving around saying, 'you know, that’s the best information I had.'"
