It’s no surprise that Hillary Clinton is flabbergasted by Donald Trump’s opinion that the U.S. needs to ban all Muslims from the country. The Democratic candidate slammed her Republican opponent in a new interview on Dec. 10, calling his statement ‘shameful,’ and scarily ‘dangerous.’ Watch here!
Hillary Clinton has a message for Donald Trump after he publicly stated that we need to close our borders to all Muslims. The 68-year-old held nothing back when firing back at the controversial candidate during an interview with Seth Meyers on Dec. 10, and explained that, no matter how easy it is to poke fun at the Trump, it’s really just not “funny” anymore. Check it out here.
“I have to say, Seth, I no longer think he’s funny. I think for weeks, you and everybody else were just bringing folks to hysterical laughter and all of that, but now, he has gone way over the line,” she admitted on Late Night With Seth Meyers. “And what he’s saying now is not only shameful and wrong, it’s dangerous.”
Hillary added that she’s really hoping this drastic demand will finally get people in the Republican party to take a stand against the surprisingly popular candidate. “This latest demand that we not let muslims into our country really plays right into the hands of the terrorists,” she explained. “He is giving them a great propaganda tool, a way to recruit more folks from Europe and the US. And because it’s kind of crossed that line, I think everybody, and especially the Republicans, need to stand up and say, “Enough, you’ve gone too far, that’s not who we are, and that’s not the kind of country that we believe we are and we’re just not going to tolerate it.” I hope more people will do that.”
This isn’t the first time Hillary has spoken out about this issue. After Trump released his controversial statement, she took to Twitter to write, “This is reprehensible, prejudiced and divisive. @RealDonaldTrump, you don’t get it. This makes us less safe.” Even the White House had to make a statement against Donald on this one. “What he said is disqualifying,” Press Secretary Josh Earnest said in a press conference. “The question now about the rest of the Republican Party and whether or not they’re going to be dragged into the dust-bin of history with him.”
But Donald has stood by his opinion. “We have to do the right thing,” he told Barbara Walters. “Somebody in this country has to say what’s right. I have great respect and love…I have people that I have tremendous relationships with, they’re Muslim, and Barbara, they agree with me 100%. It’s short term. Let our country get its act together.” Check out Donald’s book RIGHT HERE.
Wow. HollywoodLifers, are you team Hillary, or team Donald? What do you think about his opinion that we need a “total and complete shutdown” of Muslims entering the country?
