February 11th, 2017 10:09 PM
On Friday's Mornings with Maria, Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo interviewed Ezekiel Emanuel, considered one of Obamacare's architects.

Zeke Emanuel Clashes with FBN's Varney on ObamaCare Fantasies
April 24th, 2016 4:44 PM
Things must be getting grim on the Obamacare front if the Obama administration feels it must send "Zeke the Bleak" Emanuel out to defend it.
Though he was on relatively good behavior compared to previous interviews he has given, Emanuel, rather than visibly losing his cool, kept on using Stuart Varney's first name in his responses during a Fox Business interview this week to the…

February 3rd, 2015 8:31 AM
Rand Paul to reporter: "Calm down a bit here, Kelly. Let me answer the question." Joe Scarborough to guest: 'Let me finish my sentence and then you can be a condescending liberal Emanuel."

It is quite well-known that…

December 3rd, 2013 9:58 AM

ObamaCare Architect Ezekiel Emanuel: Website Disaster Actually Fault o
November 14th, 2013 7:44 PM
Over the years, lefties have blamed Fox News for all sorts of things. Now, via ObamaCare architect Ezekiel Emanuel, we learn that the nation’s sole non-liberal television news operation is actually responsible for the HealthCare.gov debacle.
