Christian actress and "The View" co-host Candace Cameron Bure has criticized Madeleine Albright for attempting to shame women into voting for Hillary Clinton, arguing that the former secretary of state's sentiments are an example of "what's wrong with feminism."

During an appearance on "Fox & Friends" on Wednesday morning, Cameron-Bure, an outspoken social conservative, slammed Albright's recent comment that, "There's a special place in hell for women who don't help each other," which she made in reference to those who don't support Clinton's candidacy.

Cameron-Bure first criticized Albright for making light of hell: "There's nothing funny about that..if anyone read their Bible and saw what the description of hell is...it's disgusting."

She went on to address the former secretary of state's statement: "There's so many women that are not pro-choice, that are pro-life," the actress said. "To say that they're not feminists, that they're anti-women if they're not supporting other women, that's, to me, what's wrong with feminism."

The "Fuller House" actress continued, "That is a turn-off for me as a woman."

When asked about her presidential candidate of choice, Cameron-Bure said that she hasn't yet decided, but emphasized that she's "watching everyone."

She also shared her thoughts on GOP frontrunner Donald Trump, who has been criticized by many for not being conservative enough.

"I don't think there's a perfect candidate on either side," the "Dancing with the Stars" alum said. "But for me it's about...who's going to put America back in the hands of the people and not so much the government."

As earlier noted by The Gospel Herald, Cameron-Bure revealed during a Tuesday segment of "The View" that she didn't appreciate Trump's use of the word "p****" when discussing rival presidential contender Ted Cruz. In fact, the actress said she abhors such language so much, she's asked her "The View" co-hosts to refrain from using terms that are demeaning to women.

"I don't like being called a b****," she told her co-hosts. After Whoopi Goldberg argued that they've stopped calling her that, Bure noted that she still hears it "around the table."

Cameron-Bure stars in the upcoming Netflix series "Fuller House" alongside Jodie Sweetin, Andrea Barber, and John Stamos. The 13-episode show, which is a continuation of the hit series "Full House," premieres February 26.

"It's a great family-friendly show, lots of laughs and nostalgia -- everyone that used be a fan of the original show will love it," she told Fox of the upcoming show. "We've had so much fun, it's been so amazing...We've never stopped being friends, but to be able to go back on that set...is a dream come true."
