Megyn Kelly Grills Wasserman-Schultz over Abortion, Lacking ‘New Face’ in 2016

Megyn Kelly tonight faced off with DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz over how the Democrats are going to push back against the emerging talking point that Hillary Clinton is the candidate of “yesterday.”

Wasserman-Schultz argued that it’s the Republicans who are living in the past, talking “the same failed policies” that got America stuck in an economic rut. Kelly asked if the Democrats are “at a disadvantage in not offering a new face,” but the Florida Democrat insisted it’s the radical Republicans who have the biggest trouble because, she put of, of their extreme views.

After asking about whether Clinton should be primaried, Kelly brought up Rand Paul‘s ongoing spat with her over where the line should be drawn at abortion. Wasserman-Schultz has accused Paul of deflecting, but Kelly was pressing her on deflections of her own.

Kelly asked what she thinks the limit should be on abortion (i.e. not in the third trimester). Wasserman-Schultz said she can’t give “a specific date and time,” but insisted those decisions are best left to women and their doctors.
