Fox News host Megyn Kelly blasted the media for failing to ask President Obama in South Korea earlier today about the Phoenix VA scandal.
Kelly indirectly referenced ABC reporter Jonathan Karl, who asked the president whether he would save Russian Vladimir Putin if he were drowning.
“Something just disturbing happened today, speaking of the president because he, he was asked at a press conference, hey, Vladimir Putin said that if he was drowning, he thinks you would save him,” she said. “I realize it’s a joke. It’s a light-hearted moment. They took time to ask our president about that today, no one bothered to ask him about the dead veterans on American soil at the VA in Phoenix.”
The Phoenix VA is alleged to have kept a secret list of patients who were not formally entered into the VA system. CNN reported at least 40 patients died because of delays in treatment.
