During “Ask Ed Live” on Wednesday’s The Ed Show, host Ed Schultz took a snarky question from a viewer about Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-MN). The fan asked Ed if he would ask Bachmann what God thought of the Affordable Care Act, a reference to the congresswoman’s comments in 2011 about feeling called to run for president in 2012. Bachmann had said that she and her husband pray about every decision they make and ask God what to do. She also said in an interview on Face The Nation that she believes God will speak to her and tell her what to do.
Schultz answered the question by saying Bachmann would never do an interview with him, implying that he has not invited on her on his program. Then he said with a grin:
My first question would be about the uh possible ethics violation that she’s being investigated for… I’ll tell you what I think God thinks of the Affordable Care Act. It’s a big amen!
The ethics charge Schultz is referring to is the accusation Bachmann and Ron Paul’s 2012 campaigns made payments to an Iowa politician.
