Megyn Kelly was really up in arms tonight over President Obama fundraising around the country as the threat of ISIS grows. She learned on-air, from Ed Henry, about a fundraiser Friday, and seemed to be at a loss for words.
When she brought on guest Marc Thiessen, Kelly asked, “Really? He’s gonna take a time out from all the work he’s been doing in the Vineyard to go do some fundraising while we consider whether we need to bomb Syria?”
Thiessen agreed with Kelly and said Obama has no concrete strategy for defeating ISIS. Kelly’s next gust, Democratic strategist Penny Lee, attempted a slight defense of Obama, but Kelly was having none of it.
Lee admitted the optics aren’t great. That set off Kelly, who cried, “It isn’t just the optics! It’s the actual behavior! Get back and start governing!… What’s he doing?!”
Kelly said she has no doubt Obama’s meeting behind closed doors on ISIS, but suggested he spend “more than just a few days on it.”
