Betsy McCaughey Walks Off Daily Show
Betsy McCaughey, the former Lt. Governor of New York who promoted the idea of “death panels.” didn’t have a good time when interviewed by Jordan Kelpper on The Daily Show.[su_center_ad]
Klepper tried his best on last night’s show to find some silver lining of terror – but was incredibly unsuccessful. First, he tried to talk to Betsy McCaughey – the woman who coined the term “death panel” and had her own tough appearance on The Daily Show five years ago. But she wasn’t having it, ripping off her mic and leaving after the first question.
He then talked to a nurse who lost her job because of Obamacare, the perfect bit of bad news. Except she was thrilled to lose her job, because her patients could now afford health care. Her free clinic was even shut down! … Which is actually a good thing.
“No sad hugs,” the nurse told Klepper as he tried to drum up drama. “We’re happy.”
