BRIT HUME (HOST): Well, that created quite a storm. I guess the Skittles people came out and said Skittles are candy, and refugees are people, right? But, the analogy was if you knew that some of these people in a group were going to be terrorists would you take a whole bunch of them in? So, was that so terrible?

NINA EASTON: Well, I think the concern was that it was dehumanizing. I think as Wrigley, the candy company suggested. You are dehumanizing a group of people who have been brutally terrorized by a civil war for years, five years to be exact. 400,000 killed --

HUME: Well, it's just an analogy.

EASTON: Yeah, but I think it kind of plays into a Donald Trump sensibility of well, some are Muslim, let's ban all Muslims.
