Fox Host to Liz Cheney: Did Obama Bring Up Torture to Distract from His Own Scandals?

After Liz Cheney called President Barack Obama a “disgrace” for his press conference Friday afternoon, Hannity guest-host Monica Crowley asked if he invoked Bush-era torture programs to distract from his own administration’s alleged scandals.

“Do you think that he is invoking what the Bush-Cheney administration did after 9/11 because his plate is now full of scandals and international crises in large part a direct result of his immediate weakness as Commander in Chief, and so he’s going back to try to fight battles from the early 2000s?” Crowley asked.

“Absolutely,” Cheney said. “He really would like to change the subject. That press conference today…was an amazing and stunning display of a president, a leader, a Commander in Chief who seems to take no responsibility for anything that’s happened on his watch.”
