Megyn Kelly Neatly Slices And Dices Donna Brazile

[guest post by Dana]

After the debate last night, Megyn Kelly was relentless in confronting current Democratic National Committee chair Donna Brazile about the damning videos released by James O’Keefe this week, and the Wikileaks revelation that Brazile tipped off the Clinton campaign about a specific question ahead of an upcoming townhall debate when she was a political contributor at CNN. Brazile desperately sought to deflect the truth blows being lobbed at her by Kelly, whining that she, a “Christian woman,” was being “persecuted” by the tenacious Kelly. It is a delicious demonstration of a reporter determined to do the work that reporters are supposed to do. It is the antithesis of the many mainstream journalists who let their own craven ambitions and personal politics determine what they will say and how hard they will press.

In a follow-up to Megyn Kelly’s evisceration, Brazile was again confronted a by another ballsy reporter. This time, Jordan Chariton with the Young Turks, pushes Brazile on the issue of the leaked question. The look of utter disbelief and disgust on his face at the 2:19 mark is priceless. I can’t embed the video, but definitely watch it at the link.

In a depressing election, it’s great two see two determined journalists forcefully pushing back on the DNC company line and the obvious untruths they are being fed. Letting nothing prevent them from doing their due diligence, Kelly and Chariton provide American voters a golden opportunity to catch a glimpse of the level of dishonesty and corruption at the top of the DNC.

  1. Brazile is a slow-plodding liar with a seriously seared conscience.

    You mean “at the top of the incoming government”, don’t you?

  7. Bringing up Wikileaks… this is supposed to be fun and games. “Here she is tonite, in public, pretending she doesn’t hate Catholics”

  11. “She’s taken a lot of villages, even in Haiti.”

  12. Kelly had struck me as mediocre at best but here she was prepared like a trial lawyer for cross-examination. She really shined.

  13. #7 Colonel Haiku, “And here’s Hillary with one of those confident Latinos, Bill Richardson. There’s not a needy bone in his body!

  14. Even worse is that Democrats were caught sending thugs and mentally ill people to Trump rallies to incite violence. Where’s the interest in this story?

    AZ Bob (f7a491)

  15. this a little like the match she had with kirsten, and how she had performed until the last year and a half, then again she ridiculed juanita’s claims so bravery only extends so far,

    narciso (d1f714)

  16. “Hillary Clinton is corrupt… She’s so corrupt she got kicked off the Watergate Commission”

    Which isn’t true, but Trump probably thinks it is.

  17. Brazile is evasive, dim-witted and pathetic. Her ability to lie (not even convincingly) and her lack of a conscience is what got her the DNC job. Kelly is top-notch. Kudos to her.

  18. So we’re supposed to believe that Russia did not doctor those emails? Since it came from Russia, via espionage, with the sole object to disrupt our election and our very country, then it has to be all perfectly legit. Right.

    Tillman (a95660)

  19. Tillman,
    even they haven’t tried to make that defense,
    which tells me it is not defensible.

    They can show us the originals and we can compare where the Russians made stuff up,
    especially when they start releasing more current ones.

    MD in Philly (f9371b)

  20. So we’re supposed to believe that Russia did not doctor those emails?

    Can you prove that Russia doctored them? Where is your evidence?

    Since it came from Russia, via espionage,

    Latest word is that the DNC hack came from within the US, not Russia.
