Video: Greta vs Gloria

posted at 9:52 am on October 2, 2010 by Ed Morrissey

It’s every bit as good as rumored from the Twitter stream. Greta van Susteren calls Gloria Allred “insane” and “delusional,” and even gets Allred to admit at one point that her client, illegal immigrant Nicki Santillan, won’t ever end up in court on this complaint. Susteren calls Allred’s ethics into question for exposing the woman and her children — “putting a big neon sign” on them, in van Susteren’s words — for a case that Allred not only admits she can’t win but won’t even survive to an actual trial. Meanwhile, Allred keeps insisting that Meg Whitman lied about the letter that her husband saw seven years ago, and van Susteren keeps insisting that any judge or jury would laugh her out of court for that assertion on the basis of a quick note scribbled on the letter by her spouse:


The best part? Well, it’s hard to pick, but for my money it’s at about the six-minute mark when Greta blasts Allred for harping on how wealthy Whitman and her husband are. “It’s not class warfare,” van Susteren scolds, accusing Allred of “blackmail.” Or, perhaps, it’s when Allred instructs van Susteren what “Latinos” think, in a moment of transparent paternalism. There are enough beat-down points here to satisfy anyone.

I’m not a Whitman supporter, not even close. But I lived in California under Jerry Brown and his father, so to paraphrase Thomas Sowell, Meg Whitman could never get me to vote for Meg Whitman. Jerry Brown, on the other hand, can and will get me to vote for Meg Whitman.

LOL; very well stated…

Keemo on October 3, 2010 at 9:34 AM

Allred and Pelosi must be sisters.

labrat on October 3, 2010 at 9:55 AM

One of the few things I vividly remember about the 70s was Jerry Brown, despite being a young and impressionable the only impression he left on me was a negative.

If it’s yellow, let it mellow. If it’s brown (Jerry) flush it down.

theblacksheepwasright on October 3, 2010 at 10:33 AM

Allred is such an atrocious hack. I can’t wait for Megyn Kelly to eat her alive.

CantCureStupid on October 3, 2010 at 10:42 AM

Wow.

I just listened to Mark Levin rip Gloria Allred to shreds.

Unbelievable. She’s such a shameless whore.

Saltysam on October 2, 2010 at 11:34 PM

Thanks for posting. This was just as good if not better.

JellyToast on October 3, 2010 at 9:23 AM

Well, if you found that interesting…

…did you hear Hugh Hewitt’s interview with Allred?

Way to put your head on the chopping block for Jerry Brown, Gloria. What a loser!

Saltysam on October 3, 2010 at 10:50 AM

The reason this is news is because Greta rarely goes off. And this was founded in commonsense.

AnninCA on October 3, 2010 at 11:00 AM

I understand the debate was merely an exchange of volleys.

Whitman stood her ground.

AnninCA on October 3, 2010 at 11:00 AM

What would truly make me laugh is if Whitman picks up Hispanic votes here.

I suspect a lot of them are feeling fonder of her. I mean, goodness, $23 an hour?

AnninCA on October 3, 2010 at 11:02 AM

AnninCA on October 3, 2010 at 11:02 AM

Huh?

Why would anyone of Hispanic heritage find this surprising?

This is nothing out of the ordinary for a hard working loyal employee of 9 years.

Saltysam on October 3, 2010 at 11:38 AM

Meg Whitman didn’t turn Nicki Santillan into the INS.

Gloria Allred did.

Pythagoras on October 3, 2010 at 11:54 AM

Has anyone asked Brown if he intends to prosecute this criminal housekeeper or at least investigate her for among many other things possible extortion? Not gonna happen I know.

txmomof6 on October 3, 2010 at 12:30 PM

Check mate!!!

Allred should just go find a little cottage somewhere, and grow some good stuff for umm *cough cough* pharmacuetical purposes. Yeah! That’s it! LOL

Me thinks Gloria is partaking in the marijuana mania a tad more than she should.

txmomof6 on October 3, 2010 at 12:30 PM

That would be an EXCELLENT question to ask. I’m pretty sure we all know what he would NOT do, but it would be fun to watch him try and squirm out of it! ROFL!!!

capejasmine on October 3, 2010 at 12:42 PM

Everytime I look at Allred I see Henry Waxman in drag..

Wonder if they’re related?

theblacksheepwasright on October 3, 2010 at 1:31 PM

“Yes, Gloria Allred is a crapweasel. But an SSN no-match letter usually speaks for itself. And if Whitman did in fact receive the no-match letter in 2003/2005, her credibility goes out the window.”

A no match letter means exactly that the numbers don’t match.

EVERYONE in California MUST file under the I-9 requirements. EVERYONE, White, Black, Hispanic, Asian, Other, Born in the USA, Not Born in the USA.

If ANYONE puts the wrong SSN on the form they SHOULD get a no-match letter.
Example:
Say your SSN was XXX-12-3456 and you Natural born US citizen put down XXX-12-3546. Transposing the numbers 45 to 54 is NOT proof of anything! It might indicate Dyslexia but I have no way of knowing that for sure.

To say that a “no-match letter” is proof of being an illegal alien is beyond stupid.

That is why the letter tells you to take no action against this employee and JUST notify the employee that this letter came in.

It is up to the Employee to straiten out any problem with their number.

Now, however, there is a MUCH bigger problem.
Gloria Allred has now “outted” her client as having committed
Fraud against the USA (Her SS card that said she was a US Citizen)
Fraud against the State of California (Her California drivers license.)

California does not/can not issue drivers license to illegal aliens. It is a CRIME.

In such a “high level case” due to JB/GA efforts, it is now incumbent on the California Attorney General Jerry Brown to arrest and prosecute this housekeeper to the fullest extent of the law!

DSchoen on October 3, 2010 at 6:03 PM

The best part?

Probably the best part is from 7:10-7:30, where Greta demolishes Gloria’s case at a rate of one absurdity exposed every 4 seconds:

1. Nicki Santillan is no hero.

2. She lied to her employer.

3. She “outed” her employer on the eve of an election.

4. She accused her employer of having received a document that her husband received.

5. She suggested that the document had the exact opposite meaning than it actually has.

RINO in Name Only on October 3, 2010 at 8:10 PM

Who has standing to make bar complaints in a case like this? This is malpractice. At very least Allred’s record should show this breach of ethics.

petunia on October 3, 2010 at 9:36 PM

Gloria is just a media ugly whore PERIOD!

Wade on October 2, 2010 at 11:29 AM

jarhead0311 on October 3, 2010 at 9:56 PM

Good job, Greta!!

ALWAYS nice to see Gloria get hit with a bag of hammers…

Khun Joe on October 4, 2010 at 12:17 AM

All of these interviews should be required listening for anyone interested in law or just having a discussion with a liberal. These are classic. Every attempt at digging into the facts and truth is met with an accusation of “You hate housekeepers- you hate the poor-you’re obviously too rich to care-” kinds of smears, dodges and attacks. These are truly classics. Excellent examples of true liberal ramblings. These tapes should be dissected by a class of students. They each hold a wealth of knowledge and would be of great benefit for any conservative student who wishes to enter public speaking.

JellyToast on October 4, 2010 at 6:58 AM

Justg more proof that liberalism is a memtal disorder. Where it stops, nobody knows.

volsense on October 4, 2010 at 8:09 AM

The beauty of Greta, is that she is a liberal, and that confounds Gloria.
Gloria made a big mistake, and Meg will benefit from it.

right2bright on October 4, 2010 at 8:33 AM

I want this woman deported as soon as possible.

…I’m talking about Allred.

mankai on October 4, 2010 at 10:25 AM

Favorite quip: “This is blowing up in her face so badly her plastic surgeon just bought his own island.”

mojo on October 4, 2010 at 1:29 PM

I wonder if Whoria Allread would open her financial records to us so that we could see the funny money transfer going on since I don’t think the illegal alien maid would be interested in 72 virgins as payment for blowing up her life and the lifes of her children.

And for godness sakes can these liberal troglodytes give Hillary her pant suits back and lay off the botox.

PatriotPete on October 4, 2010 at 1:46 PM

So far no one has asked Gloria what she pays her housekeepers…bet it isn’t $23 per hour…

right2bright on October 4, 2010 at 2:00 PM

Allred and Pelosi must be sisters.

labrat on October 3, 2010 at 9:55 AM

Allred was leftovers from a prior Pelosi facelift?

dthorny on October 4, 2010 at 3:10 PM

Great annihilated hr.

Ask yourself this simple question:

If I needed a lawyer and these two were my choices, which would I choose?

PJ Emeritus on October 5, 2010 at 3:01 PM

Why hasn’t the blackmailing liar been deported?

Gloria Allred: another cunning stunt.
