Gretchen Carlson Compares Her Job To Being President, Olbermann Names Her 'Worst Person' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Keith Olbermann named "Fox and Friends" co-host Gretchen Carlson his "Worst Person In The World" Wednesday after Carlson said that her job was "just like" President Obama's.

On Wednesday morning's "Fox and Friends," Carlson was discussing whether Obama would fire General Stanley McChrystal for his controversial remarks in Rolling Stone.

She said that "this is what being president of the United States is all about. It's these tough, huge, monumental decisions."

Carlson then compared the role of the president to that of being a host on "Fox and Friends":

"It's just like our job...what's the role of an anchor during huge breaking news? You remember growing up? You'd tune to the television, and that one moment during the year, they would have to carry a story all along, It's the same thing as being the President of the United States."

In response, Olbermann seemed speechless for a moment, before naming Carlson "President Gretchen Carlson" and wondering, "so now Fox News is saying the President should read off a teleprompter?"

Carlson was also lampooned by Jon Stewart on Wednesday's "Daily Show."
