Kelly took on Cheney after the former Veep called out President Obama on his handling of Iraq. Kelly told Cheney "But time and time again, history has proven that you got it wrong as well, sir."

Whipping both Rachel Maddow and CNN's savior (according to Jeff Zucker) Anthony Bourdain's Parts Unknown.
