Appearing on “Fox and Friends,” Fox chief political anchor Bret Baier said that President Barack Obama was talking about a “disconnected reality” when he claimed that Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber was just a small-time adviser.
HOST BRIAN KILMEADE: The president famously was asked by our own Ed Henry while he was on the road about comment and accountability. This is becoming a full-blown scandal, a big problem for the White House, isn’t it?
BAIER: It is. And the fact that the president said the fact that an adviser who was never on our staff expressed an opinion, I think that is a disconnected reality here. Because you listen to Gruber not just in the one interview on “Frontline,” but numerous speeches, numerous times he talks about being in the Oval Office with the president and a few other chosen economists going through line by line how they were going to get this bill across the finish line, how they were going to raise the funds to be able to pay for Obamacare in a way that was politically appealing, if you will, to get it past lawmakers and past the American public.
