Krauthammer’s Take: IRS Chief’s Testimony in Category of ‘How Stupid Do You Think We Are’

Charles Krauthammer was unimpressed with the testimony of IRS chief Steven Miller, arguing that it “falls under the category of ‘How stupid do you think we are?’”

“Here’s a guy who says that the IRS openly discriminated against groups on the basis of their politics, but the action was not a political action, it was instead an attempt at efficiency,” he said. “You’ve gotta be a knave or a fool to say that and you’ve gotta be an idiot to believe it. It’s simply a contradiction in terms.”
