Greta Van Susteren said she disagreed with her Fox News colleagues over their recent criticism of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Thursday.
Clinton sustained a concussion last week when she fainted while suffering from a stomach virus and being dehydrated. Clinton had been scheduled to appear in Congress to testify about the Benghazi attack on Thursday. Her testimony has been postponed.
Several Fox News personalities and guests have called on Clinton to testify and mocked her concussion in light of the news. Fox News contributor John Bolton alleged that Clinton fabricated a "diplomatic illness" to avoid testifying.
Van Susteren spoke out against their comments on Wednesday. "I don’t agree with any of my FNC colleagues or anyone else who is a tad bit sarcastic on our air about Secretary Clinton’s health," the Fox News host wrote in a blog post.
Clinton "has never shied away from a fight," Van Susteren continued, and "very significantly she has agreed to testify in January." She noted that Republicans could have called her to testify earlier or even subpoenaed her.
"I would have liked to have had her testify weeks ago and answered the questions — but now that she is sick — the right thing to do is to wait until she is better," she added. "I don’t agree with being snarky about someone’s health."
