Dana Perino Schools Juan Williams: 'Liberals Live in the Biggest Mainstream Media Bubble Ever'
Former George W. Bush press secretary Dana Perino is becoming quite a star at Fox.
After Juan Williams made a bizarre claim on Fox News Sunday that conservatives "live in a very small bubble including a media bubble," Perino fired back, "Juan, Democrats and the liberals live in the biggest mainstream media bubble ever created in the history of the universe" (video follows with transcript and absolutely no need for additional commentary):
JUAN WILLIAMS: I don't think shaking up the status quo was the goal here. I think the problem is that you get people into office who say, you know, when I'm talking to them, they say, oh, you know, when I was elected I was sent to Washington to fight ObamaCare, I was sent to Washington to shake up the status quo. And I think you were sent to Washington to govern, to represent the interest of the American people not some small sector. And right now in the Republican Party, you know, the base of the party is in the south, overwhelmingly white and very, very, very conservative. And all they do is live in a very small bubble including a media bubble and talk to each other. And they are confirmed, and then you get Heritage and you get Freedom Works. And all this ...
DANA PERINO: That's not true-
WILLIAMS: And it's just not healthy.
CHRIS WALLACE, HOST: You don't think that's true with Democrats?
WILLIAMS: To some extent it is, but at the moment, as you witness what's going on here, there are people inside the Democratic Party who say we need a deal. We need to get something done and we don't see that right now coming from the heart and the soul of the Republican Party.
PERINO: Juan, Democrats and the liberals live in the biggest mainstream media bubble ever created in the history of the universe. And so, if you look at Republicans across many of the states governors, or state legislators, Republicans are actually doing what a really good work, they just nationally they're taking a hit on their reputation.
