The Fox News host won’t take seriously her calls to defund the executive branch
Fox News host Neil Cavuto grilled Rep. Michele Bachmann over her plan to sue President Obama because of his executive orders.
“You’ve been bemoaning it for a long time. Why now the suit?” Cavuto asked Wednesday. “Why not just fix things that are very, very wrong now rather than dragging someone to court over whether they overstepped their bounds? It just seems to me like an enormous waste of effort.”
When Bachmann accused the Internal Revenue Service of giving private information to the president’s “political friends,” Cavuto became more irritated.
“Separate issue, Congresswoman. You’re conflating issues,” Cavuto said. “You’re conflating issues, and you’re being silly.”
Bachmann continued to advocate defunding the executive branch.
“Think about what you’re saying. Defund the executive branch?” Cavuto said. “If Democrats had said to you, ‘We’re going to defund President Bush,’ you would have laughed.”
