Actress and Broadway star Patti LuPone said that she has “no idea what the difference is” between Christians and the Taliban during her appearance on The View on Tuesday.
After LuPone was asked what she thought about “DeSantis and the LGBTQ,” she responded, “That is extremely upsetting. These are human beings. And I could cry. They’re not harming anybody.
“I don’t know why he’s doing this,” LuPone said of DeSantis.
“And I said this before, and I’m going to get in trouble, but I have said this before, and it’s been in print: I don’t know what the difference between our Christian right and the Taliban is,” Patti LuPone said in an apparent attack on American Christians.
“I have no idea what the difference is,” she added.
“I just don’t know what the difference is. What’s happening in this country right now in the name of religion is so dangerous,” the Heist star continued.
“And it’s not this country. It’s not America,” she added.
LuPone then lamented what people mean when calling the United States an “experiment.”
“When I was growing up, I didn’t know America was an experiment. They never said America was an experiment when we were growing up,” she said.
“It was a democracy. And now it’s in such danger,” LuPone continued.
“It’s so upsetting. And it’s upsetting to hear the loudest voices and not any kind of pushback to the loudest voices that are the extremity in this country.”
Co-host Sunny Hostin turned LuPone and said, “Well, that’s why we need people like you.”
Of course, “The View” wouldn’t miss an episode without attacking former president Donald Trump.
LuPone went on to attack Trump and Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) after being asked by co-host Ana Navarro what she thought of the 45th president’s indictment.
“It’s not enough, it’s just not enough,” the actress said. “I want Fani Willis, and I want Jack Smith, I want anybody else indicting him to indict him now so I can get over my PTSD.”
LuPone later claimed that Trump doesn’t get “any pushback,” before complaining about Jordan, who she said should “go home” after the House Judiciary Committee in NYC, which focused on violent crime overseen by corrupt DA Alvin Bragg.
