BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Sarah, he's giving Russia a big win. Vladimir Putin praised him. He also is doing exactly what he criticized President Obama for doing. He said, "President Obama is the founder of ISIS." He just re-founded ISIS, because they got 30,000 men there and they're already striking back with our would-be evacuation. The president's got to -- he's really on the griddle with this. 

SARAH HUCKABEE SANDERS (WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY): Brian, I have to respectfully and vehemently disagree with you. The idea that the president has had anything to do with helping ISIS reemerge is absolutely outrageous. 

KILMEADE: Leaving is helping. Leaving is helping.

...

HUCKABEE SANDERS: The president doesn't want to be in the middle of a civil war in the Middle East and continue to put American lives on the line. If we need to fight ISIS again the president's not afraid to do that. 

KILMEADE: The word on the ground is different from what you just said.
