A “Todd Starnes Show” caller from Georgia said she would have “been in there like a hand on a June bug” to defend someone if she saw them being attacked on the subway.
Over the weekend, Fox News weatherman Adam Klotz was brutally assaulted by some teenagers on an NYC subway train. National radio host Todd Starnes condemned the other passengers on the train who refused to step in and help the man who was being beaten.
Louise, a 70-year-old woman from Georgia, said that she would have “jumped in and beat the hell out of them” if she was on the train that morning.
She added, “Hell, I’m not gonna wait for no man to step up for me. Would you?”
When Starnes asked Louise if she could believe other men on the train stood by without intervening in the situation, Louise replied, “I mean, if I didn’t see a gun, I’d have been in there, like a hand on a June bug.”
The fearless woman isn’t scared of being outnumbered in a fight either.
“I don’t care how many of them there are. I ain’t never seen one I’d back down from,” Louise said.

The following is a rush transcript from the Todd Starnes Show which airs daily from noon to 3:00 p.m. ET.
TODD STARNES: [00:54:30] Hey, real quick, we’ve got about 40 seconds. Let’s go to Lily in Georgia. WDUN, Lily, what would you have done if you’d been on that subway car? [00:54:38][7.9]
LOUISE: [00:54:40] Todd, it ain’t Lily. It’s Louise. [00:54:41][0.3]
STARNES: [00:54:43] Louise, I’m sorry. [00:54:44][0.7]
LOUISE: [00:54:44] No, that’s okay. I don’t care. I’m an old 70 year old woman, and I’d have jumped in and beat the hell out of them. [00:54:50][5.7]
STARNES: [00:54:52] Is that right? [00:54:52][0.4]
LOUISE: [00:54:55] Hell, I’m not gonna wait for no man to step up for me. Would you? [00:54:59][4.3]
STARNES: [00:55:00] Can you believe those men stood down and did nothing? [00:55:02][2.2]
LOUISE: [00:55:04] I know. I mean, if I didn’t see a gun, I’d have been in there, like a hand on a June bug. [00:55:07][3.2]
STARNES: [00:55:08] Well, I take it that would be a bad situation if you’re the June bug, I take it. [00:55:14][5.3]
LOUISE: [00:55:14] Well, it would. I don’t care how many of them there are. I ain’t never seen one I’d back down from. And Georgia is not a democratic state. And if we don’t take it back soon, we’re gonna be like all these idiots up north. [00:55:26][11.4]
STARNES: [00:55:27] You know what, Louise? I’m with you, and I wish we could chat longer. I want you to call back in tomorrow, Louise, because we’re running out of time here. But God bless you. And we need more men to act like Louise from Georgia, and we’d be a heck of a lot better off and a lot safer on the subways. [00:55:43][16.3]
