Via those incorrigible rascals at Washington Free Beacon who actually seem to enjoy keeping an eye on the basket-cases at PMSNBC (so we don’t have to.)
Megyn Kelly told Jimmy Kimmel the other night that at the White House Christmas Party, there were a couple of other Fox News reporters (Brett Baier and Ed Henry) at the event, but the place was swarming with MSNBCers.
KIMMEL: Is there a separate section for Fox News where there’s no food and dirty forks or something like that?
KELLY: You mean there was something other than outside in the rain, others were, they were inside the building?
KIMMEL: Do you ever feel any kind of discomfort when you go into a situation like that?
KELLY: No, but it was funny because last night, we went in and I mean the White House looked beautiful. It was spectacular. And I was looking for some Fox News colleagues because this is for broadcast news. And I saw a couple, I saw Bret Baier, I saw Ed Henry, our Chief White House Correspondent. And then, boy, oh, boy did I see a lot of MSNBC anchors. I mean you couldn’t take two steps without hitting one.
KIMMEL: Oh really?
KELLY: I think they got a few more invitations than we got.
It only makes sense that the far-left, unpopular, activist network, would be the personal favorite of the far-left, unpopular, activist president.
Speaking of the “activist president…”
“This certainly has been our most productive year since the Republicans took over,” the Obama aide said, calling it, in the context of what happens in any presidency, “an excellent year.”
His “excellent year” involved every Democratic incumbent in the country running away from him and his low-40s approval rating, only to see them wiped out anyway in a mammoth nationwide anti-Obama backlash. You could understand him feeling liberated if Democrats had run on his policies and outperformed expectations; he would have pointed to that, not unjustifiably, as a mandate. Instead, “liberation” to Obama meant postponing virtually every major initiative until after voters were safely out of the way. He saved net neutrality for the week after the election; he saved executive amnesty for two weeks after; and who knows how soon the Cuba deal could have been struck if Obama wanted it done before November 4th. What he feels liberated from, in other words, is democratic accountability, which is not the sort of thing you want to hear from a guy who’s already blazed new unconstitutional trails in executive lawmaking. If this is what he’s doing in the first flush of “liberation,” what’s he going to be doing in the homestretch of his presidency in 2016, especially if Hillary has a safe-ish lead against her Republican challenger? You trust a man who’s reflected wistfully to his inner circle that it’d be easier to be president of China, don’t you? Especially with a sympathetic media cheering on his dubious, just-try-to-stop-me “winning streak.”
