I honestly do not know what she said at the awards show... dont really care to much, since in the past she has talked about people that vote republican as if they had something wrong with them...
When you say things like that in a public setting you are going to catch a lot of venom, just like Hillary with her basket of deplorables comment..
This seems to be a recurring theme with the progressive wing of democrats, now please notice Mike Rowe did not talk down to her, did not imply she was weird or wrong in her statement, and even invited her out to see the event as his guest to see if they could find common ground.
If the progressives would stop referring to those of us on the other sides as (insert ism here) and instead tried talking to us, a lot of the hate and divided nature of things today would evaporate almost immediately.

As I said before, disagreeing with her is fine. It's the whole "she should keep her mouth shut about her political views" part that bothers me. She has a right to speak whenever, however, wherever she wants - just like the rest of us. Just because she has a public pulpit doesn't mean she doesn't have the right to use it - much like Mike Row.
