Miss Louisiana USA Brittany Guidry Discusses Bergdahl Comments on ‘Hannity’ [VIDEO]
Sean Hannity had Miss Louisiana USA Brittany Guidry on his show to talk about her comments to a question about the U.S. exchange of five Guantanamo detainees for U.S. soldier Bowe Bergdahl. The swap has created a lot of controversy lately.
During the pageant, actor Ian Ziering asked Guidry: “In recent weeks the U.S. has released five detainees from Guantanamo in exchange for one U.S. soldier held captive in Afghanistan. The U.S. policy is to leave no soldier behind. Do you think it’s fair to sacrifice or swap lives in order to uphold this policy?”
Her answer was, “I am glad that we got our guy back. However, I do not feel it is right that we subject ourselves to these acts of terrorism. I do agree with our guy being back but, however, I do not think we should subject ourselves. Thank you.”
Hannity commended Guidry for her non-politically correct answer, and asked why she didn’t give the politically correct answer.
“I think everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and we shouldn’t judge them for it,” she said. “Me getting to state mine on national television I think was great, and I think more people should be able to do that and be able to do that.”
Hannity then asked Guidry if she agreed with the notion that many young people don’t fully appreciate what the military does and sacrifices.
“I grew up with a military background, my family, I have five uncles served WWII, my brother was in the Air Force. I’m a huge advocate in the USO and I really do believe in the slogan ‘everyone comes home,’” said Guidry.
Hannity followed up on her USO support by asking if she would ever go on a USO tour.
“That would be amazing, I would absolutely love that,” Guidry said.
