‘The View’ Flies Off the Rails Over Bernie Saying Boston Bomber Should Be Allowed to Vote
Reacting to Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’ stance that even the convicted Boston Marathon bomber Dzhokhar Tsarnaev should have the right to vote, the hosts of The View on Tuesday got into a heated and tense shouting match, with Meghan McCain invoking her siblings’ military service at one point.
During a CNN town hall event on Monday night, Sanders was pressed on his position that felons should be allowed to vote even while still incarcerated, prompting moderator Chris Cuomo to ask whether the Boston bomber or sex offenders should also be given that right.
“Yes, even for terrible people,” the Vermont senator responded. “Because once you start chipping away and you say, ‘Well, that guy committed a terrible crime, not going to let him vote. Well, that person did that. Not going to let that person vote,’ you’re running down a slippery slope.”
