Fox News host Megyn Kelly was in a “take no prisoners” state of mind last night when she grilled President Obama’s former campaign press secretary on the administration’s broken promises and lack of accountability on the Obamacare rollout, at one point admonishing him to “Stop it!”
Kelly played a clip of U.S. Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, stating, “I think the current administration has taken lying to a new level” on “The Kelly File” for her guest, Ben LaBolt. LaBolt referred to the remark as “misguided and unfortunate,” and even blamed the GOP for many of Obamacare’s woes, according to Fox News.
Kelly pressed LaBolt on the president;’s broken promise — “If you like your plan you can keep it” — but LaBolt continued to waver off course.
“But you’re not answering my question,” Kelly said at one point. “You’re dodging it,” she said at another.
When Kelly moved from the President’s broken promises to whether heads should roll over the fiasco, LaBolt said, “I think the real accountability is have we put in place a system that ensures that the program works.”
“Stop it! You’re too smart to believe that,” Kelly shot back. “Accountability is to say you screwed up and here’s the person – I don’t know who it is. Is it Kathleen Sebelius? You tell me.”
Watch the exchange.
Those who bore witness to the slaughter took to Twitter to cheer her on. @marypcracraft could hardly contain herself and recorded the event with a photo:
