Fox News cuts away from Hillary Clinton’s speech about ISIS to complain that she’s ‘too calm’



Fox News hosts started weighing in on a speech by Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton before Clinton had even finished giving it on Wednesday.

“She’s a little too calm,” Crowley responded. “I mean, part of the criticism of President Obama, particularly yesterday when he was in Cuba and the Brussels attack was being carried out is that he’s too passionless.”
