Megyn Kelly shut down former Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson for defending President Joe Biden despite all the evidence the guy has been a total disaster. It may be unfair to blame all the problems on Biden but as President that’s the way it goes. Believe me, he would take the credit if things were better.
Williamson said: “Eisenhower said that the American mind at its best is both liberal and conservative. We are E Pluribus Unum, we are different political views, we are different ideologies,” Williamson began. “But there must be some unifying principles on which we agree to agree.
“Whether it’s Biden that is behaving in an outrageous way or it is Trump behaving in an outrageous way, we shouldn’t respond to these things just as Republicans or Democrats. We should respond to them as Americans.
Kelly was not having it and unloaded:
“We see Joe Biden do things like the eviction moratorium, which he knew, he knew was unlawful.
“And the same thing with the mandate on the vaccines, he knew it was going to get struck down but he did it anyway.
“If we’re going to be based in reality, let’s be based in reality.
“And this president misleads us at every turn and the media misleads us at every turn.
“When it comes to media when it comes to ‘Russiagate,’ I mean, and we’re supposed to just look at the ‘orange man bad’ and blame it all on him.”
“We have to do it — We have to do it, Marianne. People who need to power their houses and need cheap energy cannot get by with the prices we’re going to impose on them,” Kelly said of scrapping Biden’s energy plans.
“If we had started a just transition to clean energy back when Jimmy Carter first talked about it, we would not be vulnerable to Russia the way we are right now.
“This used to be a country that knew how to respond to emergencies.”
Kelly fired back:
“Not flexing that muscle, going into the fetal position was a disaster.
“If we had moved into green energy — into clean energy over the last few years when we should have — we wouldn’t need to be horsed to Russia.”
Kelly said the United States had been energy independent when Trump was president. “There’s nothing wrong with natural gas!”
Williamson said without explaining how we would power our homes or our electric cars:
“This is America, a free society, we don’t all have to agree on everything. You say there’s nothing wrong with natural gas. A lot of people have a problem with that.”
