Yesterday, on America Live, Brit Hume spoke with Megyn Kelly to promote his exclusive interview with Paul Ryan on Special Report tonight. But first, she played a bit of a new ad that she “called the big story of the day” that “goes after the Obama team on the issue of Medicare.”
After playing a clip of the interview, Kelly asked Hume, “What were your impressions and what do you make of him now?”
Hume called Ryan “an unusual person." Hume continued, “He has a very deep knowledge of the issues. He’s very conversant with them. He explains the complex details in about as simple terms as they can be explained… He does this in a way that is strikingly cheerful. He’s disarming. These qualities will serve him well as a candidate. He’s a little bit of a hard target to attack. He’s going to be attacked. I don’t think he’ll be attacked personally though, Megyn, he’s personally quite appealing… You sense the Democrats know this. You hear it in the remarks that, you know, President Obama made about him being a decent man and a family man, all of which I think is clear.”
Brit Hume isn’t the gushing type but this comes pretty darned close.
