    Co-host Joy Behar, who was recently forced to apologize for mocking Vice President Mike Pence’s Christian faith, even pressed Avenatti on whether or not there is actually evidence regarding claims that Stormy Daniels ' was threatened.

The former Republican congressman disassociated himself from the GOP amid disagreements with the president and is now a registered Independent. His co-host and fianc, MikaBrzezinski, questions Trump’s mental health on a regular basis and has been on the receiving end of personal attacks from Trump’s Twitter account.
