In an exclusive first reaction to Nevada Sen. Harry Reid’s comments calling rancher Cliven Bundy, his family and supporters “domestic terrorists,” Bundy stood his ground in an interview with Eric Bolling on Hannity.
“Well, I guess he’s right,” Bundy said, “I don’t know what else we’d be. We’re definitely citizens riled up. I don’t know whether you could call us terrorists. There are the most loving people here I’ve ever met in my life.”
Bundy said that he and his supporters were just gathering together to protest the government pulling guns on them. “They’re definitely upset,” Bundy said.
Bundy said that he believes that Sen. Reid’s words will only serve to rally more supporters to the ranch’s cause. “It just seems to get bigger and bigger,” Bundy said of his family’s well of support.
Word hasn’t yet gotten around on the ranch of Sen. Reid’s comments, but Bundy said that when it does, he predicts his supporters will react much in the same way that he has.
