Fox News Contributor Jessica Tarlov Goes Off During Kavanaugh Debate: I’m ‘Being Yelled at by Everybody’
Democratic strategist and Fox News contributor Jessica Tarlov found herself on an unfriendly couch today, as her fellow Outnumbered panelists began “yelling” at her over the Democratic Party’s reaction to the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
The debate stared over calls to impeach Kavanaugh, which host Harris Faulkner laughed at and said she doesn’t think they will be able to follow through with.
“How is this helpful for the cause of the Democrats in the midterm elections?” Faulkner asked, adding that she feels bad for Democrats because their party is not focused on issues that matter like health care.
Tarlov, who noted that she is taking “frustration donations” due to her displeasure with Democrats “after the weekend that we had,” replied by saying her party should “listen to Chris Coons… Who is saying, ‘Eh, I don’t know about this.'”
“What the impeachment talk does is it fires up a very specific subsection of the base — the most angry resistors,” she added.
Fellow panelists Kennedy, Lisa Boothe, and Steve Hilton then began taking turns attacking Democrats for their conduct during the Kavanaugh confirmation process.
“I think what we have seen from the left is pure dysfunction, pure chaos, a party that is willing to do absolutely anything, even destroy an innocent man for political power,” Boothe said. “That’s exactly what we saw.”
Kennedy added that his “confirmation sort of handed even more kerosene to the loudest on the fringe to throw into the campfire,” while Hilton claimed that the loudest parts of the “loony left” makes up “100 percent” of the Democrats’ strategy.
After more back and forth about which Democratic lawmakers are misbehaving, with Boothe alleging that “Cory Booker [is] calling for people to get up in people’s faces” and “inciting the mob,” Tarlov had had enough.
“I am literally being yelled at by everybody but Harris right now,” the Democratic pundit shot back.
“I wasn’t yelling at you,” Kennedy replied, who said her comments were directed toward “nut job” Senator Elizabeth Warren.
The segment quickly moved on to attacking the Women’s March for their comments against Kavanaugh, a group that they suggested represents top members of the Democratic Party.
