AWKWARD: Person meant to introduce Donald Rumsfeld at a dinner took the opportunity to openly criticize him
Donald Rumsfeld Spars With John Stossel Over Defense Spending
John Stossel got a little bit feisty Tuesday night in his introduction of Donald Rumsfeld as the keynote speaker at the 30th anniversary dinner party for the conservative newspaper The Washington Times. The former Secretary of Defense wasn’t impressed.
Instead of praising Rumsfeld, as keynote introductions often do, Stossel, an investigative journalist and libertarian columnist, said he didn’t know why he was tasked with introducing Rumsfeld because “I’m very skeptical of our involvement in many parts of the world.”
