When Bill Maher brought up Senator Jon Kyl's intentionally false statement about Planned Parenthood's propensity to perform abortions on last night's Real Time, panelists Ed Schultz and Michael Steele disagreed with each other about the egregiousness of Kyl's fib. It was contentious, yes, but boy oh boy was that just the tip of their shouty iceberg!
On yesterday's Report, Stephen Colbert called out Arizona Senator Jon Kyl for his lie about Planned Parenthood, which Kyl explained away by claiming that it was "not intended to be a factual statement." On tonight's show, Colbert took it a step further by giving Kyl several tastes of his own medicine.
During the fight over the federal budget, Republican Senator Jon Kyl stated that over 90% of the services performed by Planned Parenthood were abortions. Over the weekend, the folks at Fox & Friends said that Walgreens offered many of the same services as Planned Parenthood. On tonight's Report, Stephen Colbert hilariously debunked them both.
