Co-host Steve Doocy said, “The White House is making President Biden’s take on Trump voters very clear by labeling MAGA Republicans as a threat to democracy.”
Co-host Brian Kilmeade asked, “I’m stunned by this approach. I’m stunned by trying to marginalize people and say every one of the people that considers himself a MAGA Republican is supporting January 6th and riots. Is that what they’re trying to do?”
McCarthy said, “He is trying to distract from the disasters that he is created in the country. The problem with Joe Biden is he does not understand the soul of America. The tens of millions of hard-working, law-abiding citizens that he vilifies that simply want to have a say in their kids’ education, to go to a school board meeting, want a gasoline price that they can afford, no longer wants inflation to continue to rise. Afraid to go out in their streets, to be safe again. They want a stronger, safer, more prosperous America, and all that he does is vilify them to distract from the disasters and no plan he has to save America from where we are today.”
On a related note, ahead of the president’s Thursday speech focusing on threats to American democracy, many New Yorkers told Fox News that America is more divided than ever.
“He’s the most divisive president in the history of the United States, at least in my lifetime,” a union worker and registered Democrat, Jimmy, told Fox News.
“I think we’re more divided than we ever were,” one woman told Fox News.
Jamal said: “The country has never been unified. Whatever Biden said he was going to do hasn’t been done.”
And a Vietnam War veteran, Mike, told Fox News that the current political divide makes the 1960s “look like a cocktail party.”
Jimmy said “we’ll be here for a while” if he listed all the reasons why he felt the divide was deepening.
Biden recently said “MAGA philosophy” is “like semi-fascism.” Earlier this year, he said Republicans were pushing an “ultra MAGA” agenda.
“This is not a fascist country,” Mike told Fox News. “Too many people gave too much to make sure that it’s not.”
