Megyn Kelly Questions White House Deputy Press Secretary Bill Burton

Megan Kelly pierced the veil of yet another White House lie on this morning’s America’s Newsroom. Her guest was White House deputy press secretary Bill Burton, who dismissed the idea that the White House was compiling an “enemies list” as silly.

Burton explained the purpose of having asked people to send the White House the email addresses of anyone making “fishy” claims about Obama’s plan to ration health care and sentence the elderly to earlier deaths, to tax the healthy to pay for substance abusers and illegal immigrants, and to reduce the supply of doctors by imposing government restrictions on their rewards. The purpose, he said, was to give the White House an opportunity to refute their claims. As though the President wasn’t on everybody’s TV screen every day denying the obvious.

Basically Bill Burton does not answer Megyn Kelly's questions about the White House and the emails sent to the email address


Wild Thing's comment......

Giggle ...I love how she keeps after the guy to answer.

Megyn Kelly is awesome, Game,set and point, she nailed his ass right to the barn door. That was great. She never asks a question, that she, doesn't already know the answer.

They keep dancing with the 'death panel' question, they have a pat answer on that but the real question of keeping the Email addresses, he wouldn't answer.

No other reporter would have pursued that line of questioning. This Bill Burton should be fired, he's lousy at his job of lying.

One more thing. Pelosi, insisted people were showing up with 'swastikas' and pictures of Hitler. Burton just referred to the same thing.

The implication here is Nazi's are showing up to protest the bill. The implied picture is we are the nazi's. When what really happened was the signs said, "No Fascism", with a swastika inside a red circle with a red line through it. NO Nazi's.

So suddenly we are the Nazi's, they are trying to turn it around. But Pelosi is the Nazi who started this charade of symbolism. Then Burton was trying to steer the conversation away from the 'enemies list' and to the protestors as being Nazis. Now suddenly, David Scott, sign in Georgia has a swastika painted on it, and of course the Conservatives are taking the hit for it. When I'd bet that bastard Congressman painted it himself.

Dingle had one of his flunkies carry a sign with a swastika on it just for effect, it was found out later it was a put up job.

We must fight fire with fire, these people are dirty and downright cheats. Treat them like what they are...criminals.

I just love her, she reminds me of a scene from a Monty Python movie, the knight has been chopped to pieces and yells to his opponent "Come here and I'll bite your legs off'. That's the tenacity of Megyn Kelly, I'm glad she's on our team.

Bill Burton is another obama flunky well versed in the arts of lying and bullshit. It is no lie that I am calling Bill Burton a bullshitter. See how easy it is to tell the truth.

I disagree Mark. He should not be fired. The most evil, lying, Marxist members of obama's administration should be out there on podiums nationwide and on every newschannel showing us just how Marxist, evil and lying they are. It might wake up a few more people.

This pissant annoyed me more than any other obot during the campaign, and fortunately isn't let out of his dungeon very often (at least on the stations I watch).

I've seen Megyn take a lot of them down, and she's taken him down several times. No wonder he doesn't come on their often.

I agree with all of you.

And thank God for Megyn Kelly, I love
how she will zero in and not give up.
