Dog The Bounty Hunter Goes Rogue On Fox News, Defends Hillary (VIDEO)

Of the five panelists sitting on the “Outnumbered” couch on Friday, the only one defending Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton was the show’s grizzled guest, celebrity bounty hunter Duane “Dog” Chapman.

Asked what he thought of Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL), Dog, clad in all black, left the rest on the sofa shocked.

“I don’t think he could beat the dynamic duo,” he said calmly.

“Who’s the dynamic duo?” co-host Andrea Tantaros asked, excitedly.

“The Clintons,” Dog said, with a smile. The hosts groaned and asked him why he would support Hillary for President.

“I want someone in there with experience. We’re at war,” he said.

Co-host Sandra Smith countered that one of Clinton’s major weaknesses will be proving her credentials on foreign policy (namely, war.)

“I dunno, I heard her once say if they keep doing this, we’re gonna make it a parking lot,” Dog responded. It’s possible he was referencing remarks from 2008, when Clinton said that if she were President, the U.S. would be ready to “totally obliterate” Iran.

“I’m a Republican but I have faith in the dynamic duo,” Dog said.

“That makes me so sad right now,” sighed co-host Lisa “Kennedy” Montgomery. “Like, I love everything about you. I think you’re powerful and heroic but the fact that you endorse Hillary Clinton—it makes me sadder than ‘The Notebook.'”

Tantaros cut in, quickly segueing to a segment on new allegations against the Clinton Foundation.

Later on, Kennedy once again bemoaned Dog’s defense of Hillary — though that time he decided to add that he wasn’t necessarily endorsing her. Dog asked her what female candidate Kennedy would support.

“Don’t say Palin,” he said.

“If we’re gonna be honest, I really like Peggy Noonan,” Kennedy, a self-described independent, responded, referring to the Wall Street Journal columnist. Dog remained silent.

Dear Reader,

When we asked recently what makes TPM different from other outlets, readers cited factors like honesty, curiosity, transparency, and our vibrant community. They also pointed to our ability to report on important stories and trends long before they are picked up by mainstream outlets; our ability to contextualize information within the arc of history; and our focus on the real-world consequences of the news.

Our unique approach to reporting and presenting the news, however, wouldn’t be possible without our readers’ support. That’s not just marketing speak, it’s true: our work would literally not be possible without readers deciding to become members. Not only does member support account for more than 80% of TPM’s revenue, our members have helped us build an engaged and informed community. Many of our best stories were born from reader tips and valuable member feedback.

We do what other news outlets can’t or won’t do because our members’ support gives us real independence.

If you enjoy reading TPM and value what we do, become a member today.
