'The View' Ladies Weigh In On Michele Bachmann's Confrontation With 8-Year-Old

Thu, December 8, 2011 2:29pm EST by 1 Comment

As always, the ladies on ‘The View’ have totally different opinions — but you’ll never guess who slams Michele the most!

Michele Bachmann’s reaction to 8-year-old child activist Elijah got mixed reviews from the ladies of The View during the Dec. 8 show — and the conservative voice of the show, Elisabeth Hasselbeck, surprisingly criticized the Republican presidential candidate! Elisabeth said Michele should have recognized the boy’s bravery for confronting her and given him some “dignity!” Do you agree or disagree?

The ladies were referring to a viral video of a young boy who went to a book signing and confronted Michele about LGBT rights. “My mommy, Miss Bachmann, my mommy’s gay, but she doesn’t need fixing,” he said quietly as Michele leaned her ear next to his face. Left speechless, she waved goodbye as he walked away.

Some people, like Elisabeth, have criticized Michele’s reaction, while others disagree. “How do you react to that?” Sherri Shepherd asked. She said she thought the boy was put up to it by his mom — he clearly is anxious in the video.

Michele even went on Glenn Beck’s radio show Dec. 6 to give her side. “I think it’s shameless to use a little boy, and put that little boy forward to advance an agenda issue,” she said.

What do YOU think, HollyMoms? What do you think Michele should have done?

Shame on this mother for putting her son through that!! This is disgusting and it is a prime example of why parenting has gone down the tubes. Using your child as a shield…she should be ashamed of herself. I fully support the LGBT community but I am totally against parents parading their children around in the political arena.
