Transcript for Gina Haspel sworn in as CIA director
Yesterday Gina Haspel was sworn in as the first female CIA director in American history. And press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted that her appointment shows the, quote, Democrats are losing their war on women in the trump administration. Oh please. Oy gavolt. Who's being singled out? Trump just signed a bill that says we're going to be pulling back federal funds to places like planned parenthood that provide health services for women so who's creating this war against women? Not the Democrats? Is that supposed to mean that any criticism of her as a candidate wasn't justified? I don't understand why they would state that at all. Go ahead, baby. I mean it's just -- I was actually really -- Well, he signed the bill, may not go through. I'm being told it was a proposal. He hasn't signed it yet. It's on the track and there are other things like that. Go ahead. I was frustrated when I read this tweet because we as conservatives are railing all the time. One of the tenants of the things that I believe in is we should get away from identity politics like if you're a woman you have to believe these things, if you're a man you have to blooe these things, et cetera. I felt a lot of messaging coming from the media, everyone from Madeleine Albright, Hillary Clinton saying women who support trump are publicly disrespecting themselves, Michelle Obama anyone who voted against Hillary Clinton voted against their own voice. I felt all these things, oh, my gosh, if I have a uterus I have to vote for a woman. It's hypocriical for the other side to come out and say Gina Haspel is amazing because she's a woman. We should be picking the best candidates across the board for everything. Yeah. I know my position has often been that, you know, women should support women because the stats make it very clear that when women are in office women issues are in the forefront. Again, a woman's issue for me is terrorism. We've talked about this many times on the show. Pmy issue isforeign policy, number one, two, three, four, five. But the idea that planned parenthood is the number one issue for women. It's just false and I'm sick of it. Women legislators are more likely to introduce legislation that specifically benefit women and that's just a stat but let me say this -- If you go into mid-term elections with that message it's not going to be -- That's my message. It worked so well in 2016. That's my message, let me just finish -- Actually, everybody's finished. We'll be right back.
