USA Today columnist slammed President Obama over a story in Politico quoting administration officials and painting the president as “fed up” and longing for the campaign trail on Monday’s “Kelly File” on the Fox News Channel.
“First of all, the idea that this is the story that’s coming out from the White House that somehow that this is supposed to be helpful?…they’re not just portraying him as checked out. They’re portraying him as a self-pitying, self-involved, pathetic person. Now, whether what they’re saying is accurate or not, we don’t know. If it is, it’s very concerning because it’s not all about Barack Obama.”
She continued, “There are a lot of other things going on in the world, and, yes, he has plenty to be frustrated about with the Republicans. I think the Republicans have behaved badly, but he has to also realize that a lot of people are unhappy with him and don’t want him campaigning with [them] because of things that he has done, that other people have no control over. It’s not the Republicans fault that the Obamacare website didn’t work for example.”
