Bill O’Reilly and Megyn Kelly doubled down on Barack Obama last evening, with both bashing Obama for comments made at the G7 summit. The O’Reilly Factor quoted the president about not having a plan to combat ISIS.
“When a finalized plan is presented to me by the Pentagon, then I will share it with the American people. It’s not — we don’t yet have a complete strategy because it requires commitments on the part of the Iraqis as well. The details of that are not yet worked out.”
As one could easily predict, Bill O’Reilly was seething.
“Now, only two possible scenarios here — two. First, that the U.S. military is grossly incompetent and can’t come up with a plan to defeat a terror group comprised of about 30,000 individuals. Or two that the President of the United States lacks the will to defeat an enemy that threatens every American.”
The Fox News star believes that, most likely, Obama lacks the will to defeat ISIS. He said that if Americans had demanded action, the President would have taken it. However, O’Reilly believes that Americans are apathetic since this is happening overseas. He believes by the time more Americans care, it will be too late.
Megyn Kelly, like Bill O’Reilly, was also angry about the President’s G7 appearance, but for a different reason — she believes Obama is trying to intimidate SCOTUS to rule in his favor over Obamacare. A YouTube clip has Kelly’s comments.
“We will respect the rule of law. But he doesn’t do that; he likes to amp people up when it comes to these Supreme Court decisions that he doesn’t like.”
Megyn Kelly had Andrew Napolitano as a special guest. Napolitano believes that Obama wants the Supreme Court to understand the intent of his healthcare law. However, Napolitano believes that intent shouldn’t matter; the meaning of the words in the law should. Like Megyn Kelly, he believes Obama is being completely inappropriate and arrogant when it comes to the Supreme Court or people who may disagree with him.
Bill O’Reilly and Megyn Kelly may bash the President a lot, but it definitely helps them in the ratings. Last week, Megyn Kelly attracted an average of 2.33 million viewers, while O’Reilly averaged 2.57 million viewers. Both O’Reilly and Kelly are far ahead of the competition, including other Fox News commenters. Do you agree with Bill O’Reilly and Megyn Kelly bashing Obama based on his G7 statements?
