In an interview on his Wednesday radio show, Hannity pointed out that he had been sickened when he first watch video of Rice punching his then-fiancée an in elevator because she could have died when she fell and hit her head.
“We know how domestic violence abuse victims react sometimes,” Hannity noted. “And they have a hard time getting away from the people that are victimizing them and abusing them.”
Delgado argued, however, that Janay Rice did not consider herself a victim, “and some might even say, watching that video, Ray Rice is the bigger victim of domestic violence here.”
She added that liberals were “patronizing” Janay Rice by calling her a victim. “We know the truth, though, because we’ve got the video tape,” Hannity observed. “But you said he’s a victim because why? Because she slapped him and spit on him?”
“He absolutely is!” Delgado replied. “And some might say I’m defending Ray Rice here. Maybe I am, but if you watch the video, the video actually makes him look better than he did before. She repeatedly attacked him. He’s a victim — flat-out fact — of domestic violence. Only after she’s hit him several times and spit on him does he finally hit back. “And she happens because of that blow to knock herself out on the railing,” she continued. “That was an unintended consequence, I’m sure.”
My full reaction to this ‘unusual’ take on the Ray Rice case would probably trigger a cardiac event among the most open-minded of censors. If ever there was an item worthy of a “WTF” page category…
