'Give Me a Break': Megyn Reacts to Pelosi's Office Saying She "Misspoke" About Hobby Lobby Ruling
Thursday night on The Kelly File, Megyn took on House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi’s comments that the Supreme Court’s ruling on Hobby Lobby is “frightening” because it was decided by five men.
Megyn said in reaction, “If Speaker John Boehner made a similar comment about the female Supreme Court justices, Nancy Pelosi would be crying sexism – and that’s what she is guilty of here.”
Today, PolitiFact looked into Pelosi’s comments and rated it false. When the fact-checking site called her office, they said Pelosi “misspoke.”
“She misspoke? What part? When she said five guys were determining what forms of contraception are legal? […] Give me a break,” Megyn said tonight on her show. “One of the marks of a real leader is owning up to one’s mistakes. Oh yeah, honesty helps a lot too.”
Kirsten Powers and Marc Thiessen weighed in, saying the American public has lost trust in the media and government because they aren’t challenging politicians.
