I’m Both Saddened and Disappointed…

An accurate clarification of my earlier comments:

“I am both saddened and disappointed that my statement about the tragedy of civilian casualties was totally taken out of context. What I said and stand behind is, war is hell and unfortunately civilians are victims of political conflicts. We, The United States, certainly know this as 69 years later we still feel the guilt of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The media, as usual, has decided to only quote the most out of context and inflammatory non sequitur rather than giving an accurate account of what my intentions were behind the statement. Along with every other sane person in this world, I am praying for peace. It is stupid and wrong and I am tired of bearing the brunt of attacks by people who want to sell newspapers or gain ratings by creating a scandal about me that is non-existent.”

  1. Mrs. Rivers. I am your biggest fan to date. I think you are the hottest lady in the in the business. I have always admire your honesty in telling the people of this country the truth. I would vote for you if ever you decided to take over the oval office as our first ever woman president. You are the one to do this. I know there would be a large number of supporters on your side. Mrs. President I am here for you !!!. Please do this for the people and this country.

  2. Ms. Rivers, I totally agree with your viewpoint of this situation. I,too, am praying for peace. Thank you for speaking out on this subject. You spoke what Many are thinking and discussing in their homes but will not admit to in public. Thank you for being bold in your convictions and speech.

  3. Your view point is correct. People need to grow up! Life is hard in the middle east and groups like Hamas are using people. They are to blame for the horrors that are happening in Gaza. If America had any guts we would go in with Israel and get rid of the Terrorists so the Palestinians could live in peace. How sad that they used the supplies and construction materials to build Terror Tunnels. If it was happening to us we would be outraged. Israel is trying to minimize causalities….sad that the Hamas Terrorists are such cowards they hide behind Women and Children.

    Wake up America.

  4. Hi Joan,
    You bring joy to my life. Don’t let those morons who chose the easy out in college (communication majors) fuel their “holier than thou” ego’s upset you. Keep doing what you do best – being successful at making real people laugh.

  5. Do not apologize Joan you nailed it. The MSM is not reporting all the facts and it is Hamas that is forcing innocents to be killed. I will always stand with Israel- I believe they are doing what they should be doing and this despicable behavior by these terrorist groups has been seen before. I am sorry for the victims but until the rest of the world stands up to these cowards and puts a stop to it it will continue. Don’t be bullied by these liars and deceivers. A lot of us out here know we are being lied to and manipulated and we are not buying it. How many times do Americans have to be lied to before they stop trusting the liars?

  6. Joan, I just wanted to say I support you whole heartedly. Love your tell it like it is attitude.
