Fox Host Wants TV Meteorologists To Ask Obama About Benghazi Today (VIDEO)

What does the weather have to do with Benghazi?

Dana Perino, co-host of Fox News’ “The Five,” challenged meteorologists on Monday to ask Obama the tough questions on the 2012 attacks in Libya.

“Tomorrow, President Obama is going to do interviews with meteorologists all across the country about a new climate change report,” she said. “I hope they ask him about Benghazi.”

“Like, the weatherman from Montana should ask him about Benghazi,” she quipped. “That would be great. I dare you.”

Determined to inject the Benghazi attacks into the national conversation, Fox News has at least twice in the past week said they would only cover White House press conferences if a reporter there asked about Benghazi.
