Many Democratic lawmakers are hoping to hear from Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. So far, those attempts have been blocked by Donald Trump who says it would represent a “national security issue.”
Pompeo did recently talk to NPR’s Mary Louise Kelly and that interview ended in controversy. The host accused the Secretary of State of throwing a vulgar tantrum and Pompeo accused Kelly of acting unprofessionally. On Sunday, Fox News host Steve Hilton blasted the Secretary for his behavior and said Pompeo should stop being a baby.
The Fox host began, “Last week, Pompeo lost his temper after an interview with NPR’s Mary Louise Kelly unleashing a four-letter word tirade, putting out a ridiculous statement, whining about what questions he’d agreed to answer. I listen to NPR a lot. And I can tell you that Mary Louise Kelly is one of the very few hosts on there who actually seems fair and is not totally biased against President Trump.”
Hilton continued with some advice for the Secretary of State. “For goodness sake, Mr. Secretary, don’t be such a baby, he said. “You should be able to handle tough questions by now and don’t be such a bully. Foul-mouth ranting at a reporter doing her job is an embarrassment to you and the administration.”
The segment ended with Hilton saying, “You should apologize. And people will think much more of you if you do.”
