FAIL: Ladies Of The View Shut Down By Donald Rumsfeld On Trump Impeachment (VIDEO)
This is a great moment, courtesy of the disappintment of the ladies of
The View. They want an impeachment so bad they can taste it.
Unfortunately they were barking up the wrong tree when they tried to get
Donald Rumsfeld to join the chorus.
Midway through the show, the hosts welcomed the former Secretary
of State under presidents Gerald Ford and George W. Bush, and tried to
tie his experience going through Watergate to the current Russia-White
House investigation. Host Joy Behar listed what she saw as the
similarities between the two investigations and prodded Rumsfeld to
agree. But he dismissed Behar’s paranoid comparison, calling it “a
stretch.” Here’s the exchange.
JOY BEHAR: I see some similarities right now going on. There was a
break-in in the Watergate complex. In this case, there was a Russian
break-in on the internet. Similar, no? There are other things I have
here. There are many similarities. He fired, what’s his name? He fired
Archibald Cox, the lead investigator. Trump fired his lead investigator,
DONALD RUMSFELD: I think drawing those — suggesting that we’re at a point that approximates Watergate I think is a stretch.
BEHAR: Don, I really believe this is worse. The Russian
interference—We have a foreign nation interfering with our election. You
don’t think that’s unbelievably sad for this country?
