Actor Antonio Sabato Jr. is running for Congress as a Republican in California. He claims to have been blacklisted from Hollywood ever since supporting Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton back in 2016.
While appearing as a guest on “The View,” Sabato, a legal immigrant, schooled the ladies about illegal immigration and building a wall on the border.
From Daily Wire:
“The View” co-hosts assumed they had a “gotcha” moment on their hands, since Sabato is both an immigrant and pro-border security; these two things can’t exists in harmony, according to the Left.
“Let me ask you another thing difficult for me to understand,” started Sunny Hostin. “We talked about your family having to hide their identity during the Holocaust in Czechoslovakia and you came here at 12 years old from Italy speaking no English and this country embraced you. … You call yourself an immigrant, but you’re in favor of the wall being built, being paid for by the American people and keeping other immigrants out of the country much like yourself.”
“The way I see it, I want the American people to be taken care of first,” said Sabato. “I don’t want the American people to take care of everybody else’s problems,” he said, before loud-mouthed Joy Behar chimed in, “But if they felt that way when your family was coming over here you would still be in Italy,” she nonsensically said, apparently unaware of the difference between legal and illegal immigration.
“I came here legally,” he retorted. “We had to wait in line and struggle and save a lot of money.”
Western Journal has more:
Sabato explained that as an American, he is primarily concerned with making sure the needs of his fellow Americans are met.
“The way I see it, I want the American people to be taken care of first,” he said. “I don’t want the American people to take care of everybody else’s problem.”
Sabato for the win? ALL DAY!
Best of luck in your Congressional race, Antonio!
