The women on "The View" dismantled former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton's defense of husband Bill Clinton's affair with then-intern Monica Lewinsky in the 1990s.

What are the details?

During the show Monday, several co-hosts on "The View" discussed Hillary's remarks on CBS' "Sunday Morning" during which she downplayed her husband's affair with Lewinsky.

Hillary said that her husband's affair with Lewinsky was not an "abuse of power," though Lewinsky herself has said in the past that she believes it was. Hillary said that Bill and Lewinsky were both consenting adults at the time of their affair.

Hillary also said she believed her husband was right in not resigning after his impeachment.

Later in the interview, Hillary pointed at the sexual misconduct allegations made against President Donald Trump, asking where were the investigations into such accusations.

“Where’s the investigation into the current incumbent, against whom numerous allegations have been made and which he dismisses, denies, and ridicules?” Hillary asked.

What did the co-hosts say?

Co-host Joy Behar was one of the first to tackle the subject and slammed both Hillary and Republicans in one swipe.

"What [Hillary] just did is exactly what Republicans do — they changed the subject," Behar explained. "And that's why we never get anywhere in the discourse."

Co-host Abby Huntsman highlighted Hillary's hypocrisy.

“This highlights to me I think why some people struggled to vote for [Hillary], because you can’t have it both ways in her position,” Huntsman explained. “You can’t put yourself on a pedestal and be a leader for the feminist movement, and at the same time refuse to acknowledge the reality that you’ve lived with for all these years and stand by your husband.

“I don’t think she can have it both ways, and she continues to try and do this,” she added.

Behar later added of the former president, "He's guilty."

All co-hosts agreed that Bill's relationship with Lewinsky was inappropriate, despite Hillary's assertion that the relationship was not an abuse of power.
