Skip to comments.Barbara Walters: If Palin ‘can ride around on her bus,’ Weiner can stay in Congress
Posted on 06/06/2011 1:57:15 PM PDT by Nachum
As revelations about a possible scandal plaguing Rep. Anthony Weiner continue surface, the Democratic New York congressman continues to have defenders:
On Mondays broadcast of The View, co-host Barbara Walters went to bat for Weiner and proposed that the picture in question was intended for his wife and not for whom it was sent.
First of all, I have my own theory about why he took that picture, if indeed he did take that picture, Walters said. This is my theory this doesnt mean that it is right. He is married to this beautiful woman, whom I know, who a lot of us know, who the chief of staff to Hillary Clinton and she travels a lot. And it may be that he took that picture and sent it to his wife to say this is how much I miss you. Thats possible.
That drew laughter from even The View co-host Joy Behar, a staunch liberal whose politics fall in line with Weiners. However, Walters also defended Weiner by attacking former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. She argued if Palin can make a bus tour and be considered viable for the presidency, then Weiner can get away with this and continue to be a sitting congressman.

Tony may bring the entire Paparazzi press down with him, Ba-ba first.
Why does anyone pay attention to ‘The View’?
Barbara Walters is an idiot.
Just when you need Dr.Jack Kevorkian.....
She must be taking tranquilizers about now - after Weiner’s admission of guilt.
Mentioning Sarah and Stick-man in the same sentence is blasphemy.
What a shill. That was the most illogical argument I have ever heard.
Wow. Walters is a freakin’ idiot.
People who watch ‘The View’ should not be allowed to vote or breed.
Yeah, seriously. I want to know. Lib logic is just crazy.
Joy Behar hasn’t seen a package in what, 20 years, no wonder she is always so damn angry..I pity any man who would actually sleep with her
That's putting it lightly....
How does a warped mind like BaBa Walters connect a subject like Weiner taking pictures of his crotch and Palin riding on a bus in in any way related.
The liberal mind connects dots that logical, reasonable humans don’t connect.
The liberal mind is a terrible thing.
Senility is an ugly thing.
Ask Baba Wawa if she thinks a married man having an affair is shameful and immoral.
I hope they keep saying stupid things like this. People for sure will distance themselves from them and they lose credibility.
Does Baba have Alzheimer’s or something? Her “view” is certainly skewed. As a woman, you would think she would be frightenly angry at Weiner for what he did to his wife. Instead, she tries to cover for him. Libs are truly mentally challenged when it comes to morals and right and wrong.
Of course - slaps head - why didn’t the rest of us notice how comparable riding on a bus and sending pics of ones junk to young women was?
Well, that there is just another example of why people like BaWa are better than the rest of us.
I wonder what Barbra will say after she hears what Weiner is saying now at his press conference. The Weiner has a mental problem. He needs help and should resign, but he says he won't.
Barbara Walters = menopausal version of ex-FReeper pissant. ;)
“Ask Baba Wawa if she thinks a married man having an affair is shameful and immoral.”
She is a subject matter expert on the topic. Remember her book?
The liberal mind is a waste.
baba is feewing pretty damn stoopid wight about now.
I can certainly see the moral equivalence, yikes. :-)
Wow, palin in a bus = Weiner sexting girls. Baba’s silicone cheeks have befouled her brain.
Exactly. It only goes to show how utterly dumb those View harpies are. Barbara needs to be put out to pasture.
This just shows how round-the-bend Palin has sent the libs.
If they could, they would have us all sent up the chimney. That’s no exaggeration.
Boy, does that not follow.
If Palin can make a bus tour and be considered viable for the presidency, then ____________________________________.
Fill in the blank, just about anything you want.
What’s the connection? What does a private citizen riding around in a bus have to do with a lewd, adultering, congresscritter, sending nasty pictures to a young woman?
The view is a bunch of airheads, and so are the audiences that watch it.
No, just a senile has-been old crone. You and I remember how the original SNL used to make fun of her speech impediment(s). She’s just sad.
Now that is twisted logic even for a hopeless libtard.
Oh Walters with find some other contrived connection to Palin and blame her for all this. LSM stupidity and biased at its finest. I fully expect Sarah to come back strong to this stupid remark.
And please!, take Joy and Whoopi with her.
Barbara, you ignorant slut.
OMG what a knuclehead.
Weiner admits he was cranking his weiner and Walters equates that with Palin going on a bus tour?
The presstitutes are losing their minds~!!
They are NOT USED TO not getting their way. As little as 5 or 10 years ago they would have swept this under the rug and no one would have heard of it.
They were even powerful enough to get Obama elected- but I think that was THE LAST STRAW~!
People realize they HAVE BEEN HAD by the liberal media and Obama was the biggest insult yet.
Not that anymore proof is required that the main stream media is nothing more than the propaganda arm of the Democrat Party, but even for them this is stretching it.
The media has spent every waking moment trying to find something, anything on Sarah Palin (and making stuff up when they can't, but let a liberal Democrat do something truly weird they rush to defend him. Not only that, when his own excuses are too unbelievable for them to defend, they try to make up excuses.
I will not even comment on her lame attempt to bring Sarah Palin into this mess.
Why thank you, you verbally challenged slut you. I guess if guys are hard up enough to allow you to sleep your way to the top, you can say what you want - or, rather what you TRY to say.
Have a nice day Bawbwa Walters!!
Right Babs and you can huff and puff on a black Senator from Massachusetts.
Wonder if barbara is enjoying eat her propaganda words. Hey, baawaa - he lied!!
Liberalism is a mental disorder.
Sounds like oid Babwa Wawwa really has the hots for this house member.
Well, at least she considers Sarah as viable for the presidency.
FReeper hat-tip to the incomparable Roscoe K
