Fox News commentator Charles Krauthammer has been one of the philosophical leaders on the right for over 2 decades, and on a recent appearance on Fox, he proved his pundit mettle once again. During a discussion on the failures in Syria and Obama’s pride at his deal with Iran, Krauthammer laid down the hammer as he explained that President Obama was living in a fantasy world.
