It sure must be disappointing when the so-called leader of your “militia” goes into friendly territory like Fox News, only to be turned into a national embarrassment. That is exactly what happened when Ammon Bundy had an interview with Megyn Kelly on Fox News. Normally these things go pretty easily with a group of softball questions and very little, if no, push back given by the host on anything the guest says.
This time, it was a little different. Megyn asked:
You know the argument on the other side. These ranchers — who you support but are not directly involved — had their day in court. They were found guilty, and it went all the way up to the US Supreme Court, which denied their appeal. Isn’t that the way it’s supposed to work in our country when it comes to the rule of law?
Obviously incapable of answering the question, Bundy instead decided to try to be clever and turn it around on Megyn by asking her “Yeah, well let me ask you — and I’m sure you know the answer — who was the plaintiff?”
This is how you can tell the difference between a professional Republican, and your average Republican voter. The pros have handlers that teach them what to say before the interview. The regular guys – not so much.
Watch the full clip of Bundy failure below:
As you can see, Megyn was clearly not impressed. The interview quickly went downhill into the realm of pure comedy.
If Ammon Bundy can’t handle an interview on Faux News, how does he think he will be able to handle a full on firefight with the federal government? I hope for his sake, that his followers don’t have cable. If they see this they are gonna toss him out of the cabin.
