Condoleezza Rice appeared on The View this week and the ladies tried to get her to say Russia delegitimized the election. They didn’t get the answer they wanted.
Condi Rice was not a Trump supporter before the election and the ladies thought they were going to get a different answer in all likelihood.
Host Sunny Houston asked the question: “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?”
Rice had a brilliant response, one tough to refute without insulting the American public.
“No, no. That’s where I — first of all,” Condi Rice said, “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.”
