“Fox & Friends” has seen co-host Steve Doocy take a presumed lurch to the left lately, questioning why former President Trump had classified documents at his Mar-a-Lago residence. Now, he seems to be making a concerted point that not all Republicans support Trump.

President Biden gave a propaganda-filled political speech on Thursday night in Philadelphia with Marines standing in the background that screamed totalitarianism. Fox News host Tucker Carlson compared it to something straight out of Nazi Germany. The divisive president warned those in attendance that “MAGA Republicans” are a danger to democracy, the country, and freedom. He painted them as the enemy and a threat.

The co-hosts of “Fox & Friends” briefly commented on the speech with Doocy asserting that it was meant to rally Biden’s radical political base ahead of the midterm and presidential elections. The president made a point of repeatedly attacking MAGA Republicans.

“So what he is doing is talking about MAGA Republicans,” Doocy commented. “Not all Republicans were MAGA just like not all Democrats, you know, love the squad. So, there are different factions within the Republican Party. Focusing on the people who fall in line with Donald Trump…”

Co-host Rachel Campos-Duffy wasn’t going along with that reasoning, interrupting to inform Doocy that she “would say the vast majority of Republicans are probably MAGA Republicans. There is the smallest sliver of people who agree with Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger. I think really he is insulting millions of people who want to, and then he said…”

Then co-host Brian Kilmeade interjected by adding, “But the squad is extremist, and MAGA is not extremist. January 6th is an aberration.”

The back and forth came hours after Biden’s divisive speech.

“We must be honest with each other and with ourselves,” Biden emphatically stated in his dangerous speech. “Too much of what’s happening in our country today is not normal. Donald Trump and the MAGA Republicans represent an extremism that threatens the very foundations of our republic.”

“MAGA Republicans do not respect the Constitution,” he railed. “They do not believe in the rule of law. They do not recognize the will of the people. They refuse to accept the results of a free election. And they’re working right now, as I speak in state after state, to give the power to decide elections in America to partisans and cronies, empowering election-deniers to undermine democracy itself.”

“MAGA forces are determined to take this country backwards. Backwards to an America where there is no right to choose, no right to privacy, no right to contraception, no right to marry who you love. They promote authoritarian leaders and they fan the flames of political violence that are a threat to our personal rights, to the pursuit of justice, to the rule of law, to the very soul of this country,” Biden declared.

“They look at the mob that stormed the United States Capitol on January 6th – brutally attacking law enforcement – not as insurrectionists, who placed a dagger at the throat of our democracy, but they look at them as patriots and they see their MAGA failure to stop a peaceful transfer of power after the 2020 election as preparation for the 2022 and 2024 elections. They tried everything last time to nullify the votes of 81 million people. This time, they’re determined to succeed in thwarting the will of the people,” he asserted.

MAGA Republicans have made their choice. They embrace anger, they thrive on chaos. They live not in the light of truth, but in the shadow of lies,” the president remarked looking to divide Americans even further.
