‘Outnumbered’: Would ‘petulant child’ Obama have sanctioned Russia if Hillary had won the election?

President Obama’s eleventh-hour response to alleged Russian interference in the U.S. election has some people wondering if the timing was motivated by politics.

After Obama announced the expulsion of 35 Russian operatives and sanctions against two Russian facilities and intelligence services in the U.S., Donald Trump’s senior adviser Kellyanne Conway questioned whether the moves were meant to “box in” the President-elect.

On Fox News’ “Outnumbered,” co-host Kennedy agreed that the protestations against Russian hacking of the U.S. election and the ultimate sanctions by the Obama administration seem politically motivated, and may not even be an issue if Hillary Clinton had won the election.

“I question the politics as well,” Kennedy said on Friday’s show.

“If Donald Trump had won the popular vote, if there had been hacking of the RNC and some damaging emails came out and Hillary Clinton won the electoral vote, would President Obama be doing the same thing?” she asked. “I think the answer, if you’re looking at this objectively, it’s a resounding ‘no.'”

The lack of action by the administration points to the “arrogance” of the Democratic Party, the show’s guest Tyrus suggested. “They didn’t want to bring the Russian hacking up,” the pro-wrestler said because they “assumed” Clinton would win the election and it would be a moot point.

Rachel Campos-Duffy argued that the only thing the new sanctions have done is “make Barack Obama look like a petulant child.”
