Debbie Wasserman Schultz may have gotten away with ignoring reality if it wasn’t for that meddling Megyn Kelly.
The Democratic National Committee chairwoman joined the Fox News election coverage team on Tuesday and did what she does best — bash Republicans.
Wasserman Schultz seized on the tone of the GOP primary race to suggest the party needs to issue a parental advisory warning before the next debate, but Kelly hit back with the obvious.
“You know what the response to that on the other side is, which is, yes, it has gotten vulgar on the GOP side, but no one’s facing the threat of indictment,” the Fox News host said.
But Wasserman Schultz wanted nothing to do with reality.
“There’s no one facing the threat of indictment on our side either, Megyn,” she insisted.
Kelly quickly reminded the DNC chairwoman that “there’s an open DOJ and FBI investigation into Mrs. Clinton right now.”
“Right. Let’s not be melodramatic,” Wasserman Schultz countered.
“Those are the facts,” the Fox News host reiterated.
“Yes, it’s gotten a little vulgar on the GOP side, but no one’s facing the threat of indictment.” Megyn Kelly called out DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz in a fiery exchange over Hillary Clinton’s email scandal. MORE: bit.ly/1LQqyia

Social media users were only too happy to be “melodramatic” in reacting to Wasserman Schultz’s denial that Clinton could face legal action.
