Fox News Host Rips Michele Bachmann Apart For Being A ‘Silly’ Hypocrite (VIDEO)

Republican Congresswoman Michele Bachmann

Now that we are fully aware Speaker Boehner and House Republicans are suing President Obama over his use of executive orders, we can commence the explosion that will occur in the GOPs face. And today it started on Fox News when anchor Neil Cavuto lambasted the representative from Minnesota on her wasted efforts to bring forth the lawsuit and argued that it would not go anywhere, that it was a waste of time, and it was a waste of resources while we have bigger and better fish to fry in the country. Bachmann wasn’t having it.

Cavuto made clear from the beginning that he thought of this lawsuit as nothing but “an enormous waste of effort” and “a political football.” He then made note that President George Bush used his authoritative action the same way President Obama has.

When Cavuto grilled Bachmann on why she and other House Republicans didn’t take up a lawsuit before and waited until now to do it, Bachmann responded just as you would expect her too: rolling her eyes and saying “Criminy” (no, really) and then blamed Speaker John Boehner for not doing it earlier. Cavuto’s response:

“Where was your rage when Democrats were going after President Bush on the same use of executive orders, because I think you knew then that that was a waste of time then and I think you know in your heart of hearts this is a waste of time now.”

Then Bachmann made the mistake of saying we should “defund the executive branch” saying “cut it! Make it hurt! Because if they don’t have money, they won’t have power!” moments after stressing the importance of an equal three branch system. That’s when Cavuto really let her have his rage:

“Think about what you’re saying,” he shouted at the bewildered Congresswoman. “Defund the executive branch? Congresswoman! If Democrats had said to you, ‘we’re going to defund President Bush,’ you would have laughed at them and so you should have been.”

Then the host exploded when Bachmann tried to avert attention from executive authority to the phony IRS scandal. When that happened, Cavuto put his foot down, shouting “No! Now you’re just conflating issues and being silly!”

It’s actually hard to contain your laughter when Bachmann says “the American people are absolutely outraged.” Take note, Congresswoman: an extremist fraction of the Republican Party is not “the American People.” And being outraged over something they clearly don’t understand doesn’t constitute a real “outrage.”
