During today’s news conference, President Obama passionately defended U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice against criticism from some GOP lawmakers. On tonight's Special Report, Charles Krauthammer reflected on what he called the president’s “indignant” remarks.

Krauthammer said, “He gives the strangest defense by saying she didn’t have anything to do with Benghazi. Okay, then why the hell are you sending her out there? Why didn’t you send out the Secretary of State or the CIA Director or Panetta or somebody who did know?”

Krauthammer referred to Obama as “Lancelot defending the mistress in distress.”

“You know, it made Mitt Romney and the binders with women look positively feminist in comparison,” Krauthammer said.
