Fiery WATCH: Megyn Takes on Dem Over ‘Hands Up’ Gesture on House Floor
Megyn Kelly tonight took on Rep. Al Green (D-Texas), who was among several lawmakers who made the “hands up, don’t shoot” gesture on the House floor yesterday.
The gesture has become popular among those protesting the grand jury decision in the shooting death of Michael Brown.
Kelly said the issue is that the actual evidence presented to the grand jury is being ignored. She explained that “hands up, don’t shoot” was not part of the evidence.
Kelly then went on to read witness testimony from multiple African Americans who said that Brown charged at officer Darren Wilson, who allegedly told Brown to stop. When Brown wouldn’t stop, that’s when witnesses say Wilson started shooting.
“That was the evidence that the grand jury heard,” Kelly said.
“That was not all the evidence that the grand jury heard,” Green argued.
Kelly fired back, “That’s enough, sir, to say there is no probable cause to charge somebody.”
Later, Kelly took on Green over the race issue.
“How is it about race when every witness who testified Michael Brown was charging that cop was African American?”
“Well because African Americans can make mistakes, too,” Green said.
“All of ‘em? All six of ‘em?” Kelly challenged.
