Karl had been insulted after asking Trump about an inspector general report raising concerns about the government's coronavirus response.

Comforting him today, fuming Behar told him: "I watched that debacle yesterday and I was furious when he called you a third-rate reporter.

"I wanted you to say, 'no darling, you are a third-rate president."

Responding, Karl cracked a smile while shaking his head. 

Behar added: "I want the reporters to call him out on his lying.

"I want the reporters to follow up on questions — and if you can't get a real good answer, the correct answer, I want you all to get up and walk out. 

“That's what I want. Can you do that for me and your fellow Americans who are watching this in horror?" 

I want the reporters to call him out on his lying

Karl replied: "I understand what you're saying.

"But that's something that I would never do. I think it is my job to report on what is happening there, to ask the questions.

"Look, he can insult me all he wants — I don't care. It doesn't matter. It really doesn't matter.

"What matters is getting to the bottom of what is happening with the federal response and how people should be responding to this crisis."

But Behar was adamant Karl should strike back and brand Trump a liar.

"Just say it for us!" she crowed.

Earlier, co-host Whoopi Goldberg praosed Karl as a "first-rate" reporter. 

Last week Trump snapped at Karl, telling him “don't be a cutie pie" when he asked whether the president could guarantee that every American who needs a ventilator would get one.
