Awesome Megyn Kelly Confronts Milwaukee Union President Over ‘Sick’ Teachers

Megyn Kelly Confronts Milwaukee Union President Over ‘Sick’ Teachers

The Blaze

During an interview Tuesday, Fox News’ Megyn Kelly repeatedly tried to nail down an answer on whether Milwaukee Teachers Union president Mike Langyel condoned teachers using fake medical excuses to get out of work to attend protests in Madison.

But when the union prez refused to address her question directly and suggested her question was “the wrong one to be asking,” Kelly laid down the law, reminding Langyel of his role as her show’s guest.

“For better or for worse, I’m the anchor and you’re the guest,” she said. “So I’ll come up with the questions and you can answer them or not.”

Wild Thing's comment......

God bless Megyn!!! Go Megyn! That fool was a complete tool….a very useless one however!

The unions are so out of control in this country. Governor Walker is doing a great thing for America.

I love when Megyn Kelly thunders away on people. Many of them forget she’s an attorney and has plenty of experience asking the questions especially from hostile “witnesses” in corporate law.

This guy is guilty of condoning fraud on the part of the doctors who gave the notes and the teachers using those notes. All parties should lose their licenses and jobs. Fraud is fraud regardless of ones intentions. A union boss dodging questions should be nothing new.

I've seen this Langyel on another show and he's a real a-hole. He keeps saying they're trying to help education but it's all about the union. When has the teachers union ever helped education?

In most of our schools across the country, upon graduation about 80% of the students can read their diploma, why is that score constantly decreasing ? We keep throwing more money at the problem expecting that to somehow magically improve the scores but they are constantly getting worse. Teachers's pay is always increasing now at a record high of almost 80,000 dollars for a 9 month job. Plus they want the taxpayer to pay for their retirement how is this fair? The fake sick excuses, sends what kind of message to their students,,, the end justifies the means as long as we can strong arm the opposition, lie, cheat and steal to beat them into submission.

If they were so concerned about the students why are they not in their classrooms, instead of protesting a balanced budget, why are their Unions from all over the country showing up in Madison to scream louder,

Go Megyn! I wonder if this guy is related to Robert Gibbs. He tap danced all around that question, but wouldn't directly answer. Obviously he knows those fake excuses from unethical doctors don't sit well with the general public. Unions are all about criminal and unethical activity.

What an effing moron.

I love the way that Megyn concluded with the fact that the viewers could easily arrive at their own conclusions, regarding his being complicit in the condoning of the fraud.

This fool is nothing but a living breathing series of talking points.

Like all Public Employee Unions, they care little about the effect that their actions and demands have on the Taxpaying Citizens. Like this idiot, they cover their butts, by sugar coating all of this throwing out phrases like, "lower class sizes, more libarians, etc.".

I also find it interesting that his answer to her question about going through the Legislative Process on this issue, was to continue to spout more talking points. Civics classes must have been deleted from the curriculum, where he teaches.
