Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice laid the smack down on the ladies of ABC’s “The View” for their continued instance that the presidential election was hacked by Russia.
Hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar, Sonny Hostin and Sara Haines peppered her with questions designed to trick her into undermining the election of President Donald Trump.
But they obviously had no idea who they were dealing with.
Behar tried to get Rice to agree that Secretary of State Rex Tillerson’s former ties to Russia when he was the head of Exxon were problematic for his current role in the administration.
Rice shot back that Russian President Vladimir Putin has been trying to interfere with U.S., and other nations’, elections for years. And she noted that the worst thing Americans can do is precisely what the hosts of “The View” do daily.
“Secretary Clinton questioned the legitimacy of his election in 2012. Now he’s saying, I’m going to question the legitimacy of your election by hacking into it and so forth,” she said. “Don’t let him get the satisfaction of thinking that we don’t believe our own elections to be legitimate.”
Not willing to give up the fight that easily, Hostin again asked if Putin did try to interfere in the election, wouldn’t that mean that “the very legitimacy of our election is at issue?”
But Rice did not take the bait and again shot holes into the left’s favorite narrative.
“I trust the people who voted in Wisconsin and Texas and Alabama and California to have voted on the basis of who they thought was best going to represent their interests,” she said. “And so I’m not going to question the legitimacy of their vote because Vladimir Putin tried to interfere in the elections. That’s just a step that I don’t think we should take. Let’s trust our fellow citizens to have been smart enough to have voted for the people they thought they ought to be voting for.”
