“I thought I was watching Fox News,” co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle says in reference to comparison of Chris Christie's bridge scandal and President Obama's own moments of crisis
CNN's Don Lemon made Fox News proud on Thursday when he asked DNC chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz about the “difference” between New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie not knowing his top aides shut down a highway, and President Barack Obama claiming not to know about issues surrounding the NSA and Obamacare.
“Don Lemon last night asked a very, very good question,” Eric Bolling said before playing the clip (above) from CNN's “OutFront.”
All of “The Five” co-hosts agreed, while Kimberly Guilfoyle seemed relieved that another journalist finally took some of the “heavy lifting” off of their back.
“I thought it was great questioning. I thought I was watching Fox News for a second there, and then I rubbed my eyes,” Guilfoyle said. “Ask the pointed questions, be a journalist, do your job. We gotta do all the heavy lifting.”
When Wasserman-Schultz, a Florida Congresswoman, answered Lemon's question, she said the difference is that the issues Obama claimed to be unaware of were policy issues, while Christie is denying a scandal.
“A scandal that leads right to his office,” Wasserman-Schultz said. “In which his staff — and possibly him — exacted political retribution and retaliation for a Democratic mayor in Fort Lee [NJ] refusing to endorse him in his reelection.”
