DNC Chair to Megyn: Rand Paul Should Stop 'Deflecting' on Abortion
Megyn Kelly tonight pressed Democratic National Committee Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz on her “dust up” with Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) over abortion.
The Associated Press asked Paul whether he supports rape and incest exceptions to abortion, but he was not explicit about his stance. Rather, he questioned when Wasserman Schultz thinks life begins, saying, “You go back and go ask Debbie Wasserman Schultz if she's OK with killing a 7-pound baby that's just not born yet.”
“In terms of personal liberty, we definitely have a different opinion,” Wasserman Schultz said of Paul.
Wasserman Schultz said that the DNC doesn’t support rolling back Roe v. Wade and stressed that she believes these decisions should be between women and their doctors.
The DNC chair said that Paul “should stop deflecting and answer the darn question.”
Kelly and Wasserman Schultz also discussed the Republicans who have announced they will run for president.
“The Republicans unfortunately simply have no new ideas. They each have – whether it’s Rand Paul, Ted Cruz or Marco Rubio – have talked about the same failed trickle-down economic policies that got us into the worst economic crisis since the Great Depression and that we’ve thankfully – thanks to President Obama – been able to climb back out of 61 straight months in a row with private-sector job growth,” Wasserman Shultz said.
Kelly asked whether Hillary Clinton should be challenged by other members of her party, to which Wasserman Shultz replied, “We’re going to have a primary.”
