Fox News host Megyn Kelly couldn’t help but laugh when conservative author Dinesh D’Souza compared the United States to a child molester on her show Monday night.
D’Souza was promoting his new film and book “America: Imagine A World Without Her.” He argued that President Barack Obama was of a generation that views America as a “force for evil.”
“In some ways you can say this group believes in American exceptionalism, but instead of believing that we’re exceptionally good, they believe we’re exceptionally evil,” he said. “I think with Obama you have a President who in a sense views his job as one of containing, or curtailing, the power of his own country.”
Kelly told D’Souza that sounded like he was accusing Obama of being “anti-American” and asked him why he thought Obama would want to be President if he didn’t “love his country.”
“Well, look at it this way. It’s not that Obama hates America. It’s not that he’s trying to take America down,” D’Souza explained. “It’s almost like this. If I was in a family and I believed my dad was some kind of a serial killer or child molester, I would still love him. He would still be part of my family, but I’d do everything I could to prevent him from doing these evil actions. I would think that would be not only good for the world, but good for my dad. So with Obama, he believes that he’s doing the world a favor and America a favor by controlling this rogue elephant that is the United States.”
“So America is the child molester in this scenario?” Kelly chuckled. “Just trying to follow, Dinesh. I think we may have jumped off the deep end.”
