Donald Rumsfeld shut down Joy Behar on “The View” Thursday when she argued with him that Hillary Clinton actually won the election because she got more votes.
“Well he [Donald Trump] lost by more than three million votes in the popular vote. He won the electoral vote,” Behar explained to the former Secretary of Defense. (RELATED: Joy Behar Slams First Lady: ‘Where’s Melania Going To Go If We Don’t Have Any Sanctuary Cities’)
“What counts?” Rumsfeld responded. (RELATED: Ann Coulter Busts Out Laughing At Joy Behar’s ‘Insane’ Theory)
“Well the electoral vote counts,” Behar answered.
“I thought so,” Rumsfeld said.
Then Behar and co-host Sunny Hostin started comparing the investigation into alleged ties between Trump’s 2016 campaign and Russia with Watergate and trying to get Rumsfeld to answer questions about it. He didn’t hold back.
“I think suggesting that we are at a point that approximates Watergate I think is a stretch,” Rumsfeld answered. “Why do you want to engage in hypotheticals? This man was elected president of the United States.”
“There is an investigation on the subject you’ve cited,” he added. “Which is perfectly appropriate. Nothing has been concluded. I have a sense you might be jumping to conclusions.”
