There’s nothing quite as satisfying as seeing someone shut down one of the obnoxious hosts of “The View” using sound facts and logic, two things these people just don’t seem to possess.
This is precisely what happened when former Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld made an appearance on the show and managed to shoot down Joy Behar’s rambling about Donald Trump’s victory in the 2016 election.
And it only took two words.
According to The Daily Caller, Donald Rumsfeld shut down Joy Behar on “The View” Thursday when she argued with him that Hillary Clinton actually won the election because she got more votes.
“Well he [Donald Trump] lost by more than three million votes in the popular vote. He won the electoral vote,” Behar explained to the former Secretary of Defense.
“What counts?” Rumsfeld responded.
“Well the electoral vote counts,” Behar answered.
“I thought so,” Rumsfeld said.
Then Behar and co-host Sunny Hostin started comparing the investigation into alleged ties between Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia with Watergate and trying to get Rumsfeld to answer questions about it. He didn’t hold back.
Rumsfeld replied by saying, “I think suggesting that we are at a point that approximates Watergate I think is a stretch. Why do you want to engage in hypotheticals? This man was elected president of the United States.”
He finished up by stating that there’s currently an investigation being carried out, which is the right course of action, but since nothing has been officially concluded, folks assuming Trump’s guilt are jumping to conclusions.
This is a classic example of someone allowing their ideology to form and shape their conclusions about a person and event without having the proper facts and evidence to guide their thinking.
Liberals get angry when conservatives do this, yet they seem to want a free pass when they do it themselves. Life doesn’t work that way, unfortunately.
As far as the election, it’s really time to get over it. It’s been six months. No amount of bellyaching over the electoral process will change what’s already happened, so why continue to harp on it?
