    Bush’s White House Press Secretary Tells Female Victims Of Violence: ‘Make Better Decisions’

    Bush White House Press Secretary-turned-Fox News host Dana Perino asserted Wednesday night that women who are victims of violence should “make better decisions” to avoid being hurt.

    Perino made the comment on Fox New’s “The Five,” in the middle of a discussion of Kansas City Chiefs Line Backer Javon Belcher, who murdered his girlfriend before killing himself over the weekend. While her co-hosts were discussing the merits of female gun ownership as a way to avoid violence against women, Perino was quick to blame women themselves for being victims:

       PERINO: I think it skirts the issue that women are victims of violence all the time –

        CO-HOST: They should have guns!

        PERINO: Well, maybe, or make better decisions.

    The 1st Amendment gives you the right to say stupid things, the 1st Amendment doesn't guarantee a paycheck to say stupid things.
