CNN host Don Lemon grilled Democratic National Committee chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz on how it’s OK to assume Chris Christie is hiding something while assuming that President Obama is always forthcoming.

Wasserman Schultz was eager to spread the message that the New Jersey governor had committed wrongdoing, a news drop that conveniently steered attention away from former Defense Secretary Robert Gates’ revelations a day earlier about Hillary Clinton.

“I think the investigation that is ongoing is going to — through the questioning, particularly tomorrow when the assembly asks the right people under oath questions about exactly what happened and who and where these instructions came from to shut down three lanes of highway on the George Washington Bridge that not just — not only snarled traffic but actually slowed down first responders from looking for a 4-year-old,” Wasserman Schultz said.

“There are so many questions that need to be answered that Chris Christie has refused to answer thus far and today those e-mails revealed that there is smoke and that smoke leads right to the closest staff that he has in his office. If he’s such a straight shooter, which he prides himself on, Don, why did it take seven hours for him to release a statement for him saying he was outraged and had no knowledge of it? I can tell you if I knew nothing about something and had no knowledge, I would immediately release a statement. That doesn’t take a lot of hand wringing to release a statement like that.”

Lemon asked Wasserman Schultz about the controversies faced by Obama over the past year. “Each time the president has claimed that he didn’t know. He didn’t know about the NSA spying on allies. He didn’t know that about the Obamacare website. He didn’t know that if you — that you wouldn’t be able to keep your doctor — so what’s the difference between Christie not knowing and the president not knowing?”

“The difference is the issues that President Obama said he didn’t know about were policy issues. This is a scandal. A scandal that leads right to his office in which his staff and possibly him exacted political retribution in retaliation for a Democratic mayor in Fort Lee refusing to endorse him in his re- election. As a result they ordered the shutdown of three lanes of the George Washington Bridge on the first day of school, snarling traffic, trapping children in school buses,” Wasserman Schultz responded.

Top Democrats were spawned under a rock in radioactive Nevada, or something. Never, and I mean NEVER, has this country seen such high levels of mendacity and chutzpah by America's "governing" class. Never.

"“The difference is the issues that President Obama said he didn’t know about were policy issues. This is a scandal."

Oh, really? Four American deaths in Benghazi, at least two in F&F, and those aren't scandals?

Think of a happy place, Debbie, and remember . . . baby steps. This nice young man here will take you back to your ward, er . . . I mean, room.

Gee Debbie, what's a bigger scandal? Closing down a highway in a political snit or selling guns to Mexican drug dealers? Closing down a highway or siccing the IRS on political adversaries?

Ok... What _is_ the difference between Obama not knowing something and Christie not knowing something? Well, Obama is a Democrat (whose excrement is not malodorous) and Christie is (nominally) a Republican. QED. All clear now?

She'd be better off minding her district. Let Pelosi be party leader.

I'm just impressed that a CNN anchor, weak as it may be, had the guts to go after the institution and question the lies being spread. I'm not a huge Christie fan (no pun intended) but I am for determining truth.

The difference according to this female ape is that what Obama didn't know about were policy issues??? The president didn't know? I know he's a fool but this is going to far, it doesn't even start to become an excuse. And of course Wassername isn't even a good liar, and just as brainless as her hero. This is what the Democrat party has sunk to, not that they ever had much to start with.

Wasserwoman Schultz and Prince Reebus should get married and then promptly jump off a bridge together.

I think these television hosts need to stop being so deferential to idiots like DWS and just outright embarrass them - make them pay a price for their refusal to admit the truth. Why not, at the end of the interview say, "okay folks, that was Debbie Wasserman Schultz with her completely inane, naive and obtuse opinion. Thanks, Debbie, for demonstrating how completely you hold the American people in contempt, and think we're too stupid to understand your obvious agenda...again, that was Deborah Wasserman Schultz ladies and gentlemen."

i'd like to grill Debbie, but I'm not talking about asking her questions. She's the shill who freely lies to support her fellow democrats, as when she told a baldfaced lie about Israel's ambassador in the last election cycle, was recorded saying it, and then denied she'd ever said it.

Such a waste of frizzy hair.

another scripted interview. If lemon really wanted to challenge her he would have used the IRS scandal. Or even challenged Shultz with her own you can keep your policy lies. Benghazi and Fast and furious for the icing.

Every statement you make communicates that you know nothing and have no knowledge, Debbie.
