Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, special advisor for Health Policy to the director of the White House Office of Management, joined Megyn Kelly to give a quick Obamacare lesson to Fox News. He criticized Kelly, claiming “You and your colleagues were constantly criticizing, trying to under-fund it and trying to make sure it didn’t work!”
Kelly tried hard to not back herself into a corner by claiming that “a lot of the criticism proved true.”
“It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy. We’ll try to do everything we can to make it fail and then when it fails, we’ll say, ‘Why did it fail?’” continued Emanuel. “You were constantly attacking the law and trying to make it underfunded.”
Kelly sarcastically remarked “It was our fault.”
The two bantered back and forth, debating the issues of healthcare.gov, before Kelly abruptly ended the conversation, remarking “Listen, you’re fun to talk to. Thanks for being here.”
The right-wing has attempted to kill Obamacare from the start, and when their efforts actually work, they want to place blame elsewhere.
