You know what happened here.
Megyn Kelly saw the deranged remarks Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.) made on MSNBC following the judge’s decision to temporarily block Obama’s action on immigration, and she said, ‘book that guy for tonight’s show!’
Gutierrez had said on MSNBC that the “militancy that will be activated throughout the immigrant community in terms of voter registration, voter participation and voter anger at the Republican Party… I think you are going to see it in an unprecedented manner.”
He had also said “the decision speaks volumes on how mean and xenophobic people can be.”
But that was PMSNBC where lunatic opinions are spouted on a daily basis and the other talking heads nod sagely in agreement.
This is Fox News. With Megyn Kelly. And this interview was one for the ages.
“You seem to be speaking about Republicans as mean and xenophobic,” Kelly remarked, asking him what he was basing that on.
But Gutierrez only wanted to talk about the villainous judge – and went on and on detailing his mean and xenophobic ways – and how even his Mayor thought it was a bad decision!!1!! Gutierrez sputtered on and on as if anyone cared what the Democrat Mayor of Brownsville thought.
In a classic “Kelly moment,” she calmly reminded him that there is a rule of law in this country, and not only did the judge in this case not think Barack Obama had the authority to put the executive order in place – Barack Obama didn’t think he had the authority to do this — for six years! Is he also mean and xenophobic?” Kelly asked triumphantly.
Gutierrez stammered that he disagreed with the president on that, but he had won that argument. And he kept on blathering, but Kelly interrupted with the coup de grace: “you didn’t attack his motives or impugn his character!”
At this point, Gutierrez got a little freaky and weird, “You know — you and I can have a much longer conversation,” he began, looking at her sideways.
“Why don’t you just answer the question, sir,” Megyn said impatiently.
“I can bring you a repertoire of things that have been said on the floor of the House of Representatives about illegal immigrants…” he continued.
But Kelly cut him off – “you’re dodging!”
She cut to a commercial while Gutierrez was still blathering incoherently.
Watching the body language and facial expressions of the Congressman in this interview, one gets the distinct impression that he was under the influence of something – alcohol, a controlled substance or perhaps uncontrolled substance – I’ll leave it to you to decide what.
