Greta Van Susteren: Media ‘Beat Up on’ Pres. Obama

GretaIn a roundtable discussion on Sunday’s ABC “This Week,” Fox News’ Greta Van Susteren had strong words about President Obama‘s—and the media’s— performance at Friday’s end-of-year news conference.

“The president’s most powerful weapon as president has been his ability to inspire, that’s his greatest strength,” Van Susteren said. “He comes out last Friday in the press conference, he was depressing, he was like, pathetic, he sucked the oxygen out of the room, the media beat up on him, the media had bad questions, they kept punching him,” Van Susteren said.

She concluded that the president was so depressing, you almost “want to slit your throat.”
