FIREWORKS: Abby Huntsman Shuts Down ‘The View’ After Host Calls Trump a Dictator

Abby Hunstman, the new conservative co-host of ABC’s “The View,” took on her liberal colleagues on Thursday after one of them compared President Donald Trump to an actual dictator.

Co-host Sunny Hostin harshly criticized Trump’s comments about Hurricane Maria and the U.S. response to the devastation in Puerto Rico.

Acting as the voice of reason, Huntsman commented, “I don’t think President Trump is solely to blame for what happened.” She also correctly pointed out that “Puerto Rico had a number of problems before Maria even hit.”

However, the fireworks really started to fly when Hostin likened Trump to a dictator.

Watch the video below:

“That’s comparing him to a Hitler, somebody that gasses their own people, that starves their people,” Huntsman shot back. “You think President Trump was in the Oval Office saying how can we make it worse for Puerto Ricans? How can we make it so more people die? You think that’s what happened in the White House?”

Hostin refused to back down from her statements, claiming Trump didn’t “care enough” when the hurricane hit.

“At the time that this was happening, he was more concerned with NFL athletes protesting and kneeling than he was concerned about what’s going on in the United States,” she said. “When you see someone, the president, letting his own citizens die and then turning it around and saying that they didn’t really die, I think that that’s very similar to the acts of a dictator.”

“It’s an easy applause line, and I think that’s an extreme way to look at it,” Huntsman responded. “What happened in Puerto Rico was far more complicated.”

President Trump sparked a firestorm on Twitter with a tweet questioning the official death toll from Hurricane Maria.

“3000 people did not die in the two hurricanes that hit Puerto Rico. When I left the Island, AFTER the storm had hit, they had anywhere from 6 to 18 deaths,” Trump tweeted.

He added, “As time went by it did not go up by much. Then, a long time later, they started to report really large numbers, like 3000…This was done by the Democrats in order to make me look as bad as possible when I was successfully raising Billions of Dollars to help rebuild Puerto Rico. If a person died for any reason, like old age, just add them onto the list. Bad politics. I love Puerto Rico!”

      We all are asking the same question. All 3 mouthy scum bags are Bitches. Abby is a decent and kind person and did a great job on FOX, why in the world she would go to that show is a mystery…..she is among gutter rats and the show needs to be canceled.

      Some of the ignorant people on the view don’t realize that President Trump can do a dozen things at once while they can’t walk and chew gum!

      President Trump did more for America and the American people in one year than the previous three presidents did in 24 years!
      Donald Trump is my AMAZING PRESIDENT and like he promised, president for all AMERICANS! President Trump is the best president ever and the most brilliant leader in the history of the world!
      Keep America Great! Greater than ever before! AMERICA and AMERICANS FIRST!
      Actions speak louder than words and President Trump’s actions speaks volumes for America and the American people!
      Donald Trump overcame adversity never before seen in the history of an American Presidential election and no one is going to stop him!
      President Trump is so right so often about so much, that it is unbelievable! He is an unstoppable genius!
      Sixteen Republican challengers couldn’t stop Donald Trump, the Democrats couldn’t stop him, adversaries in his own party couldn’t stop him, the lying liberal media couldn’t stop him, the thug protesters hired by the Democrats to disrupt his rallies couldn’t stop him, crooked Hillary, despite her underhanded cheating and attempt to rig the election with the help of then President Obama, the DOJ (Loretta Lynch) and the FBI (James Comey) couldn’t stop him, so why are so many wasting their time? He won’t be stopped! Trump/Pence 2020!

      I agree with your assessment of the trash show called the view. Why would she go on the same show with these brain dead liberal idiots. She is so far ahead of them on all fronts of class, intelligence and knowledge that she does herself no good even trying to talk to the idiots.

      It’s time for this show to be gone. what is wrong with ABC that they allow this to go on. They belittle everyone that does not think the way they think. Anyone with half a brain should know they cannot argue with idiots. so why on earth would they want to sit at the same table with 4 of them.

      Sure hope she has a clause in her release from Fox that says in certain time she can return if The View gets cancelled, cause a lot of us are praying that it happens & soon!

      Maybe she felt her voice would be heard. I can’t stand Sunny Hostin even if she is wrong she would never admit it and nobody ever stood up to her. Since she has been on the view she is not speaking out from other locations.

    I watch this disgusting show to prove thier lies…I do extensive research not using the media lies to prove thier lies.. Abby is correct in telling Sunny that Trump isn’t the problem with PR..and the hurricane….and Trump is correct about the high number of deaths….there were only a few hundred that died and some of those weren’t because of the hurricane ….all the View idiots thier blue notes from the proud at that have issues to talk about but none of them have been researched for being right…..this show is about bashing people that don’t agree With them…….

    First of all, their Mayor/Governor is the one that did not let the people have the trailer loads of supplies that the US sent. It was her fault that people were sick and starving. I saw the trailers myself on tv and knew they were there right at the time of President Trump’s visit. The View is a terrible tv show and should, by all means, be taken off the air for good. No, I will not watch that show.

    • judyjj

      September 14, 2018 at 2:33 am

      Rebecca is correct about about the trailers and PR! These nasty mouth baboons will argue anything they hear against Trump and never checkout the truth. The stupid producers don’t care that is why they continue this disgraceful show. They all need to be kicked to the gutter with the rest of the gutter rats.

        Might I also add that there was a massive stock pile of bottled water discovered hidden the other day !!! The corrupt mayor and her democrat buddies made sure that most of the supplies were NEVER received by the people in need, that includes materials vital to restoring electricity and food !!! The good people of Puerto Rico were used and duped by the Democrats to further their agenda and make our President look like an uncaring monster. VOTE PEOPLE !! #walkaway

      Plus, after a year, pictures have been taken of millions of bottles of drinking water that are still sitting on a tarmac. No effort, what-so-ever, was made by Puerto Rico’s own Government to get this lifesaving water to its citizens.

      Rebecca….I am in agreement with you all the way on this!!! First of all here is the USA going to rebuild these peoples homes and everything that was destroyed by this storm….DO THESE PEOPLE APPRECIATE THE FACT THAT IT WILL BE BUILD BETTER AND STRONGER THAN BEFORE AND RESILENT FOR FUTURE STORMS…..IF THEIR GOVERNMENT TOOK CARE OF THEIR OWN, AND REFURBISHED MANY OF THESE RUN DOWN BUILDINGS, PERHAPS IT WOULD NOT HAVE BEEN SUCH A HUGE NUMBER OF DESTRUTION …….THEY DO NOT APPRECIATE OUR COUNTRY OR OUR PRESIDENT AND IT IS ABOUT TIME THEY DO!!! HOW WOULD THE COUNTRY’S THAT USA ALWAYS COME TO THEIR AID FEEL IF WE DID ‘NOT” COME TO THEIR AID!!! THE VIEW IS NOTHING MORE THAN A HATEFULL SHOW FILLED WITH MISERABLE WOMAN WHO HAVE NOTHING BETTER TO DO THAN TRASH EVERYONE AND ANYTHING THAT “THEY” DO NOT LIKE…….NEWS FLASH LADIES…THE WORLD DOES NOT REVOLVE AROUND WHAT YOUR PERSONAL VIEWS ARE……ESPECIALLY WHEN THEY ARE ALL FRAMED OUT IN HATE!!STAY STRONG REBECCA AND KEEP THAT INTELLIGENCE THAT YOU HAVE…..NOT MANY DO TODAY….THEY BELIEVE EVERY LIE THAT COMES DOWN THE ROAD….NICE TO KNOW THAT YOU CAN SEE THROUGH THESE HORRID WOMEN.

    Sunny Hostin, is the worse thing on tv she doesn,t know what she is talking about did she go down to Puerto Rico, What else do they want we send supplies but if was up to me i would send nothing to such ungrateful Lazy people it was there why didn they go get it Did they want us to bottle feed it to them , Personally i dont give a damn about those dirty people, Nobody comes help America out and we got Hurricane s going on around us,, So to hell with them,What did Sunny do did she give any cash or just run her mouth, She is just an ignorant bitch ,,,,She needs to get hit in the head

      Only the disgusting Libs/Dems watch and go to this show. The rest of the nation has more sense and class than to get involved with these slimy snakes. Producers allow this show to continue…they are just as bad and uncouth.

      September 14, 2018 at 1:27 pm

      I disagree with your statement that Sunny is the worse. Joy has her beat by a mile! Sometimes Sunny relies on real facts where Joy doesn’t. I hadn’t watched the show in years but since the presidential election I tried to watch the hot topics portion to see how bad the idiots would lie…but could never get past a few minutes because my blood pressure would rise too high.

    Hey Sunny if you think Trump didnot care Neither did their own Mayor and I for sure don,t care the whole bunch could die down there, They not helping America do anything they are a drain on us, So hell with them and Hell with your ugly ass

      September 14, 2018 at 1:49 pm

      Wow Margaret, how do you know those people are lazy? Then you say you don’t care if the whole bunch dies? That is a very hateful thing to say. Have you ever been there? The ELITES ARE THE LAZY ONES. The people didn’t deserve the treatment they got from their Mayor. The reason they’re “LAZY” IS BECAUSE THE MAYOR IS GIVING HER OWN FAMILY AND FRIENDS JOBS. She is purposely keeping the people down.

    The PRs have been a problem in this country since I was a kid — and the country is still a socialist slum. I’ve never understood why the US took it in as a Protectorate and I hope it’s never granted Statehood. As the song from “West Side Story” goes, “Puerto Rico, my heart’s devotion, let it sink back in the ocean”. Blame Trump for their crap status but it was in the toilet before the hurricane. This country sent millions of dollars worth of aid, plus a Hospital Ship, and they’re still bi**hing. Typical useless DemocRATs.

    Oh and let’s not forget the semi trailers that were loaded with suppolies left on the Port Dock, does anyone in Pueto Rico have any responsibility in this…I think local Gov’t are more to blame than anyone else.

    Those idiots on the view should all be working in a Motel 6 somewhere as they are only smart enough to clean toilets. Like any state the Federal Government can’t just walk in and take over emergency operations and can’t go in until the governor of that state requests help. Puerto Rico is a territory and not a state but the procedures are the same. So once again the those idiots show their lack of knowledge about everything they talk about.

    Brock Long, the head of FEMA, told Robin Roberts on Good Morning America a few days ago that the U.S. was the only response to Puerto Rico, no one else helped, and that the Puerto Rican government themselves didn’t even have an infrastructure or any type of planning in place to deal with disasters. He said the U.S. could not do it all and that since then President Trump has raised money and sent several billion dollars to Puerto Rico to help them establish an infrastructure so if it ever happens again they will have some preparation and planning in place. Let’s just hope they don’t have a bunch of crooked politicians like the Washington, D.C. Democrats who are making themselves millionaires with their crooked backroom dealings or the money sent will end up in the back pocket of some crooked Puerto Rican politician.

    This show needs to be canceled. Goldberg, Behar and Hostin are all evil feminists who are getting paid astronomical salaries to sit on their fat asses. Five days a week just so thatthey can trash our President with immunity by their anti-Trump hating, Democrat supporting bosses at ABC!

    well i suppose the puerto rican government, was waiting for someone else to force feed their citizens all those supplies on the docks and at airports. all that food and water, is still there rotting away to no longer consumable status.

    that mayor of puerto rico, was standing there with supplies all around on the docks from the us navy. while she, was complaining trump was doing nothing. proving she, is both crazy and stupid.

    Unfortunately Puerto Rico wants to be treated as a state of the US and all the benefits that go with it..However they are not a state. Perhaps they should rethink their status and decide to be part of the union instead of sniveling hanger one’s

    MS. Hostin, YOU need to ask yourself WHAT did OBAMA do to stop all the arson fires, and looting and killing in MO when the riots started? NOTHING! HE DID NOTHING ! Now what did all the other PRESIDENTS do when all of the other Hurricanes hit like Katrina ? And in the early 1900’s in Texas Over 5,000 people were killed in hurricanes. Do you see everyone blaming the president them for it ? NO … YA have no clue, So when you grow up and can use BIG girl panties and NOT cry while playing in the sandbox, then come back and say some GROWN up words. In the meantime get your thumb out of your mouth and GROW up.
