From 7-1-16 episode of The Rob Zicari Show LIVE 10-1pm M-F
The media let out a huge sigh of relief when terrorists attacked Bangladesh. Why? Because they didn’t have to talk about Loretta Lynch’s Phoenix airport tarmac meeting with Bill Clinton anymore. But terrorist attack or no, they will still find time to criticize Donald Trump.
The latest controversy surrounds comments made by an audience member during a town hall in New Hampshire. A woman stood up and asked, “Why aren’t we putting our military retirees on that border or in TSA? Get rid of all these heeby jobbies (hijabs) they wear at TSA? I’ve seen them myself. We need our veterans back in there to take it. ” Trump’s response? “We’re going to be looking at that and a lot of other things.” Just like he did in January at a campaign rally in Claremont, New Hampshire. Remember that? I don’t think New Hampshirites are too fond of Muslims.
The media was upset that Trump corrected a man who talked about “Zionist Israel” but didn’t correct a woman who referred to Muslim headgear as “heeby jobbies.” The man who complained about “Zionist Israel” also talked abortion. “I’m opposed to the murder of unborn babies being legal,” he said, to which Trump responded, “We are with you.” Then the man said he was “opposed to wasting our military in the Middle East on behalf of Zionist Israel.” Trump told the man: “Israel is a very, very important ally of the United States and we are going to protect them 100% — 100%. It’s our true friend over there.” Later, Trump said: “That was a tough question on Israel. That was nasty. Whoa.”
So the media doesn’t like that Trump defended Israel and abortion but didn’t defend women who wear hijabs. They are very angry he didn’t stick up for heeby jobbies. He probably didn’t even know what the hell she was talking about.
Personally, I’ve never seen a woman at the TSA wearing a heeby jobby. That must be a New Hampshire thing.
The lady did make a good point about hiring veterans. If you hire veterans to enforce border security so less illegal immigrants will come into the country and take American jobs, that seems like a win/win. Put aside the heeby jobbies in the TSA comment for a moment. Putting the military to work seems like a good idea. You would think that would be the one thing Democrats and Republicans could get together on. Democrats love to create government jobs and Republicans love the military. Win/win.
Creating jobs that retired soldiers can do is something we all benefit from. Creating controversy over what you call a Muslim headscarf is not.
