Thiessen: 'Hillary Compared Half of the American Electorate to Al Qaeda!'
In a speech today, Hillary Clinton compared Republican presidential candidates who hold conservative views on abortion and women's reproductive rights to "terrorist groups."
"Extreme views about women, we expect that from some of the terrorist groups. We expect that from people who don’t want to live in the modern world, but it’s a little hard to take coming from Republicans who want to be the president of the United States," Clinton said. "Yet they espouse out of date, out of touch policies. They are dead wrong for 21st century America. We are going forward, we are not going back."
Marc Thiessen said on "The Kelly File" tonight that Clinton's hypocrisy is unbelievable.
He noted that when Scott Walker compared facing down protesters to fighting ISIS, a DNC spokesman said, "If Scott Walker thinks that it's appropriate to compare working people speaking up for their rights to brutal terrorists, then he is even less qualified to be president than I thought."
"Hillary Clinton just compared half of the American electorate to Al Qaeda!" Thiessen remarked, noting that 46 percent of Americans identify as pro-life and 42 percent believe Planned Parenthood shouldn't receive federal funding.
He said it appears that Clinton realizes her campaign is in trouble, so she's taking a page out of Donald Trump's playbook and making outrageous statements.
"This is not a candidate who's ready for primetime," Thiessen said. "She is not her husband. This is a very, very bad candidate."
