Gretchen Carlson To Congress: ‘Isn’t This What Americans Hate About You Guys?’

‘This is what Americans get so frustrated with’

Fox’s Gretchen Carlson Grills Two Congressmen: ‘Isn’t This What Americans Hate About You Guys?’ (Mediaite)

On Fox this afternoon, Gretchen Carlson grilled two congressmen over whether the proposal to end the shutdown and raise the debt ceiling will pass through the House of Representatives. After they admitted that this whole ordeal could’ve been dealt with earlier in the month, Carlson asked whether this is indicative of what Americans “hate” about members of Congress.

When asked whether the bill will pass the House, both Reps. Devin Nunes (R-CA) and Adam Smith (D-WA) answered in the affirmative. The latter, however, added that “The shame of it is, this is something we could have done back in the beginning of October.”

That prompted Carlson to ask her guests: “Isn’t this what Americans hate, quite frankly, about you guys, members of Congress? That this is something that could have been done long ago and here we are again?”
