Liberals are calling for Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle to be fired after she argued that waterboarding should be legalized after the Brussels terrorist attacks.
During Tuesday night’s episode of The Five, Guilfoyle said that though the fight against terrorism should be conducted in a “lawful” way, it’s important to “make laws” that effectively combat terror — “like the Patriot Act.”
Here’s what Guilfoyle had to say, according to Mediaite:
You have to be able to do what it takes in a lawful way. The point is, you can make laws. Especially in time of terror like this where there are exigent circumstances. National security is at stake. So you take people that you trust, your valued advisers, and you talk to the Justice Department and you come up and craft some means to do so. I mean, what they did at the time was legal. There was a policy change under this administration. A new administration can bring in their experts and their new pieces of legislation — like the Patriots Act and thing like that — to be able to effectively combat terror.
“For those who say that it doesn’t work,” host Brian Kilmeade added, “you’re not sliced up in a hospital right now trying to desperately stop the bleeding. And if you were able to stop that, if you were able to stop that attack someway, somehow, you gotta think we should be open to it.”
