Gretchen Carlson: ‘Hopefully No One Else Dies’ While We Wait for Obama’s VA Reports

Gretchen Carlson grilled Democratic strategist Simon Rosenberg over President Barack Obama’s remarks concerning the Veteran Affairs scandal Wednesday afternoon, asking if Obama’s comments had been adequate for the situation, and saying she hoped nobody else died while the government waited for reports on the situation.

“Was this enough today?” Carlson asked. “Was he mad as hell, as he promised would be?”

“I think we’re at the beginning of this process,” Rosenberg said. “There’s going to be a lot of intensity around this. The president has dispatched one of his top aides to ride herd on this. We’re going to know in the next few weeks. There’s a report being given to the president next week. [VA Secretary General Eric] Shinseki has to give another one a week later. We’re going to have a lot more data and they’ll make good and smart decisions.”

“Hopefully no one else will die while we’re waiting,” Carlson replied.
