Fox News host Steve Doocy and the network's "objective" news anchor Bret Baier agreed on Monday that President Barack Obama's timing was questionable in announcing a deal with Iran that broke three decades of gridlock on preventing the country from obtaining nuclear weapons.

"Don't you think it's a little curious?" Doocy asked Baier during a Monday Fox & Friends segment. "Some of my friends were talking over the weekend, isn't that curious timing? Out of nowhere, you know, in the midst of Obamacare not unrolling correctly, the president's poll numbers never been lower then, look, [Secretary of State] John Kerry pulls a rabbit out of his hat and changes the subject."

"Yes," Baier agreed after a pause. "I mean, you're right. It is questionable timing as far as, you know, how much this is sucking up the oxygen in the room and Obamacare was taking a lot of front-page space. However, they had been working on the deal for while and it did come together at this time. I mean, they unrolled it at this point."

"It's handy for them," Doocy concluded.

"It is handy for them," Baier said.
