The liberal ladies on “The View” have run their mouths for long enough, trashing President Donald Trump about anything and everything. The catty hosts don’t typically operate on facts but have just met their match with their new co-host who is a proud conservative.
Former Fox News anchor, Abby Huntsman, hasn’t been on the show long, but she’s already had enough of their trash talk and lies, particularly with one disturbing claim about Trump.
Huntsman didn’t hold back when she set the record straight once and for all about our president, blindsiding her costars with the perfect response.
Entertainment reporter Perez Hilton is about as much of a fan of Trumps as Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar on “The View,” which is to say that he detests the president and probably can’t provide a logical reason for it. So, when he caught wind of what just went down on the show between the women and their new co-host who is their political counterpart, he reported on Abby’s defense of the president in a distasteful and very angry manner.
Perez Hilton wrote:
After ray of sunshine Sara Haines left, she was replaced by another conservative voice to stir things up, Abby Huntsman from Fox & Friends.
She brought that same kind of rational thinking to her first big dust-up on The View Thursday, over Donald Trump making the ludicrous claim that the nearly 3,000-person death count following Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico was MADE UP TO HURT HIM POLITICALLY.
Cohost Sunny Hostin made the very understandable declaration that Trump doesn’t care about the Puerto Rican people.
Considering how he basically told them they had to fend for themselves and let hundreds die through inaction, a pretty understandable sentiment.
That’s when Abby jumped in and said: “I don’t think that’s fair, and I don’t think it’s fair, like yesterday, to compare him to a dictator. That’s comparing him to a Hitler-“
NO. We gon’ stop you right there. Not sure how someone got to this table with such remedial debate skills, but that argument is total B.S.
If we said “Our cat acts just like a dog” you couldn’t then say we compared our dog to Lassie and start asking if the cat ever pulled Timmy out of a well.
Saying Trump acts like a dictator in general is NOT the same statement as saying he acts like very specific dictator Adolf Hitler. Got it, Abby?
Well, actually, Perez…a lot of big liberals and major left-leaning media outlets compare Trump to Hitler and defend why they believe it’s accurate. The Washington Post wrote a piece headlined, “It’s not wrong to compare Trump’s America to the Holocaust. Here’s why,” hateful progressive filmmaker Michael Moore compares the president to Hitler in his his new documentary, and these are just the start of this common and very wrong comparison.
“How ironic is it that our progressive, leftist, Democratic-leaning media would compare President Donald Trump wanting to secure our borders to Nazis who didn’t recognize the borders of any nation on Earth. These talking heads have no shame,” David Baker for the Las Vegas Journal-Review wrote.
But I digress. Let’s get back to what else politically sanctimonious Perez Hilton had to say on the matter. Brace yourself, it only gets more nauseating in his attack on Abby’s assertion.
Now let’s actually talk the point about comparing Trump to a dictator. Is it fair? Well…
- Trump attacks the free press any time they’re negative to him and embraces outlets that are only positive, a classic stick-and-carrot intimidation technique to make ALL the stories about him good.
- Trump tells blatant, easily disprovable lies (like the one you’re covering RIGHT NOW), creating his own reality in which he is a beloved, idealized leader who is always successful.
- Trump vilifies The Other, in this case whipping up fear of immigrants by pushing stories of MS-13, etc — leading his base to mistrust other races and nationalities, a classic path toward nationalism.
- Trump expects the justice system to serve his needs, attacking the DOJ, FBI, and intelligence apparatus for following through with investigations of anyone on his team and simultaneously demanding investigations into his political enemies.
Gurl, if that doesn’t sound comparable to a dictator to you, maybe open a history book. Or read about the current exploits of the authoritarians Trump likes to praise so much, like Kim Jong-Un or Vladimir Putin.
But we’ll let Abby finish that thought…
“That’s comparing him to a Hitler, someone that gassed their own people, that starved their own people, someone that orders for thousands of their own people to die. Do you think President Trump was in the Oval Office saying ‘How can we make it worse for Puerto Ricans? How can we make it so more people die?’”
Obviously no one thinks he said that. But NOT CARING about someone’s well-being, which is what Sunny accused him of, is not the same as actively trying to hurt them.
This is just too much to take. Liberals seem to have a tendency of contradicting themselves and Perez’s interpretation of Abby’s retort feels like that has happened once again.
Watch the heated exchange below and decide for yourself if Abby was in the right:
