EPIC: Tom Selleck Has Had Enough of Rosie Running Her Mouth – Nobody Saw This Coming
Nowadays it’s popular for celebrities and famous people to use their public influence as a platform to propagate their political ideas.
One example of this is Rosie O’Donnell show. Just recently she talked about her beliefs regarding gun control.
Her quest for that episode was Tom Selleck who appeared there to speak about his new movie, “The Love Letter”, but Rosie and her viewpoints on the Second Amendment stood in the way of that. However, Tom Selleck, behaved with elegance and grace as always.
As reported by the Conservative Fighters, during the interview, Rossie O’Donnell, started to pick on Selleck about the commercial he did for the NRA.
Selleck didn’t cave after her badgering and responded in a gracious and reserved manner. He respectfully elaborated his beliefs in a very mature way. As the report has stated, his response even made Rosie was apologize for her own bad behavior.
Rosie asked him : “You also have the freedom of speech, but you’re not allowed to scream ‘fire’ in a crowded movie theater because it threatens the safety of other people. Assault weapons threaten the safety of other people. There’s no reason in my opinion to have them. You wanna have a hunting rifle? Great. You wanna have a handgun?”
To which Tom responded : “Do you really think the Second Amendment is in the Constitution to guarantee hunting and target shooting? Do you really think that’s what the Founding Fathers meant?”
She said : “I think the Second Amendment is in the Constitution so that we can have muskets when the British people come over in 1800. I don’t think it’s in the Constitution to have assault weapons in the year 2000.”
And asked him if she was wrong, to which Selleck nodded his head.
This is how some of the viewers reacted to the interview:
“She invited Tom on her show and tried to discredit him. He remained very calm and logical. She only made herself look like an ass.”
“Some people just have class and some people are just trash.”
“When Rosie asked ‘Don’t the guns bear some responsibility?’, Tom should have asked her if the spoon bears the responsibility for her obesity. The gun and the spoon are only tools in the hands of men.”
“That woman O’Donnell is a fool and there is no cure for her. For example, you cannot buy an assault weapon at the gun store. A real assault weapon is a machine gun. Criminals get guns, even in Mexico and in South America.”
