Yeah, this just happened.
In the wake of this morning’s horrific terror attacks in Brussels, the liberal ladies of ABC’s “The View” found themselves declaring none other than the much-reviled GOP frontrunner Donald Trump the “voice of reason” on terrorism. And when you watch the video, you’ll see that they themselves were as stunned at saying it as you probably are hearing it.
Via The Blaze:
The co-hosts of ABC’s “The View” appeared to soften a little on GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump on Tuesday, admitting that his foreign policy positions don’t seem all that outrageous in the aftermath of the deadly terror attacks in Brussels.
Joy Behar, an outspoken critic of Trump, pointed out that the Republican was “right” about the Iraq invasion being a “huge mistake” and everyone seemed to be in agreement that Trump accurately noted in January that “there’s something bad going on” in Brussels.
“He was right, so his foreign policy isn’t so outrageous,” co-host Sunny Hostin said. She later added, “I can’t believe I’m feeling this way, but he seems reasonable today.”
Co-host Paula Faris also expressed some shock that Trump was seeming more like the “voice of reason” on terrorism.
Watch the video for yourself (yes, I know, painful):
Of course, having this crowd see the merits of one’s viewpoint is a pretty dubious honor, and under normal circumstances might even be the kiss of death in the minds of some people. But I’m gonna go out on a limb here and suggest that, if Paris and San Bernardino weren’t enough, what happened in Brussels today should wake up all but the most completely and willfully ignorant.
And, sadly, today we have yet another case where the GOP frontrunner has been prescient in making comments that once may have sounded extreme, but become less so as reality starts to catch up…
