State Dept. spokeswoman annoys another Fox host: ‘You can smile about it all you want’

State Department Spokeswoman Marie Harf appears to be the White House’s new version of Susan Rice. She’s making the rounds on television spewing nonsensical talking points about the growing crisis in Iraq and hoping she doesn’t get called out on it.

After Megyn Kelly mopped the floor with her earlier this week, the young spin-master took her chances with Fox host Shepard Smith.

It seems he couldn’t stomach her BS either. Here is the video  and transcript via the Blaze.

From the Blaze:

“Did you just say special operators are on the ground to attack ISIL? Because that’s the biggest fear, that’s exactly what the fear is — that these special operators, these ‘advisers’ are going to turn out to be advisers just like they were in Vietnam,” Smith said.

Harf responded with a dismissive smile, clearly frustrating the host.

“Well, you can smile about it all you want,” Smith shot back. “But that’s the fear. You’re the one that said they are ready to fight ISIL, I hope that’s not the case.”

“I said they know how to fight terrorists like ISIL better than anyone, and that’s what they’ll be advising and assisting the Iraqis to do themselves,” Harf clarified.
