Condoleezza Rice recently appeared on The View to talk about America, Americans, and President Trump. The cackling hens of The View may have hoped that Rice would bash President Trump, but instead, she put them in their place. And it only took 5 words!
“Let’s trust our fellow citizens” – Condoleezza Rice, 2017
Here’s how the exchange went down between Sunny Hostin and Secretary of State Rice:
HOSTIN: But Madam Secretary, if he indeed did engage in these types of tactics in our election, then the very legitimacy of our election is at issue, isn’t it?
Hostin was talking about allegations of Russian collusion in the election. Rice immediately shot that narrative down. She indicated that Hostin was showing a mistrust in the intelligence of the American people.
RICE: No, no. That’s where I — first of all, I don’t want to question his motives beyond he’s an eye for an eye kind of person. Secondly, 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. 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.”
Sorry liberals, but that’s just the way it is!
The American Bacon reports:
Condoleezza Rice, who served as America’s chief diplomat under President George W. Bush, could not have been more diplomatic when it came to critiquing President Donald Trump on Tuesday morning’s edition of The View.
