Wondering why so many people don’t like Hillary Clinton? As with so many situations where one seeks answers to the big questions in life, it might be best to consult the Good Book.
At least, that seems to be the opinion of “The View” panelist Raven-Symone, who weighed in on the public’s impression of Clinton, a Democratic candidate for the presidency, during Thursday’s episode of the ABC talk show.
Speaking about a poll in which only 37 percent of Americans said that they find Clinton honest or trustworthy, Raven-Symone went biblical on the topic.
“I have a problem with everybody still saying that she’s untrustworthy,” Raven-Symone said to other panelists. “I feel like there’s this stigma since the beginning of [the] human race that a woman is untrustworthy. It starts in the Bible.”
A brief discussion of the parable of Adam and Eve ensued.
Reminded by other panelists that there might be other reasons people might find Clinton untrustworthy — such as a lingering email scandal from her time as secretary of state — Raven-Symone dismissed the naysayers.
“She’s explained many times what the situation was and why they’re coming after her,” she said. “I think that’s a problem; get over it already.”
Guest panelist Sunny Hostin busted out the statistics to offer her two cents on the topic.
“And also, if you look at the stats, only 27 percent of people believe [GOP presidential candidate Donald] Trump is honest,” Hostin offered.
“That many? Wow,” Joy Behar marveled.
