Fox News anchor Chris Wallace made no secret about how he felt watching President Joe Biden’s Inauguration speech Wednesday, calling it “the best inaugural address” he has ever heard.

“A lot of this event today, a lot of the president’s speech, was colored by the emotion of the fact that exactly two weeks ago, 14 days ago, there was a mob, a buzz of insurrectionists, of domestic terrorists on the inaugural stand.”

Wallace pointed to Biden’s particular focus on unity in the wake of a pandemic that has taken more than 400,000 American lives.

“Talking directly to the American people, saying, hear me out. We have a right to dissent peacefully, but our disagreement must not lead to disunion,” Wallace said.

Wallace told his Fox News colleagues that Biden’s speech reminded him of speeches that he has witnessed over the years, including President John F. Kennedy in 1961.

“I think it was less an inaugural address and more part sermon, part pep talk.”

Joe Scarborough: Donald Trump Endorsed Candidates Can Be Defeated

The results in Nebraska have Scarborough stating that Republican candidates who go up against opponents backed by Donald Trump can be defeated.

It’s the start of the primary elections heading into the midterms in a couple of months. Nonetheless, the results in Nebraska have “Morning Joe” co-host Joe Scarborough stating that Republican candidates who go up against opponents backed by former President Donald Trump can be defeated. 

Jim Pillen, a University of Nebraska Regent, defeated businessman Charles Herbster, who Trump endorsed, in Nebraska’s Republican gubernatorial primary. Furthermore, Herbster faces sexual misconduct accusations from eight women, including a state senator.

“They humiliated Donald Trump in Nebraska,” Scarborough said on Wednesday’s edition of “Morning Joe.” “It sends a message to a lot of other Republicans that you can take this guy on, and you can beat him.”

The former president has garnered primary election wins from candidates he’s endorsing this year, including vital wins in the presidential battleground of Ohio.

However, the results in Nebraska have Scarborough pointing out that only because Trump has endorsed a candidate, it doesn’t guarantee them a victory. He also adds that some Republican voters may be souring on Trump and the party’s inability to move on from the former president and his policies. 

“The one thing that is constant … is Republicans say one thing about Donald Trump on the air and off the air; even people who have worked with him trash him; they can’t stand him,” Scarborough added.

CBS

Former Defense Secretary Mark Esper went on the offensive, declaring former President Donald Trump’s style as “unnecessarily coarse and divisive.” A video published by Mediaite shows Esper appearing on Tuesday’s “Fox & Friends” to promote his new book.

Some pundits describe Esper as a “never Trumper” or a guy who left the administration and profited from speaking out against his former boss. Esper prefers to describe himself as a “Regan Republican.”

“And if you’re Republican like I am, you want somebody that can grow the base. And the only way you can advance core Republican policies is if you grow the base, win the country, and win elections. You have to win elections.”

Esper served as the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Negotiations Policy at the Pentagon During the President George W. Bush administration before he was named Defense Secretary under Trump.

Esper has called Trump a threat to democracy and said he would not vote for the former president were he to run in 2024.

“I hope that the Republican base can figure out that while President Trump pushed a lot of traditional Republican ideas,” Esper said. 

“There are other candidates out there who could run that could do it without dividing the people, without creating such tension within the country, and do it by growing the base as well.”

Joy Reid: Religious Right Grew Out of “Segregationist Movement”

Published

MSNBC’s Joy Reid is drawing criticism from right-leaning pundits after she referred to some of the Supreme Court Justices as “Christian nationalists on the court” victimizing “black and brown folks.”

According to a transcript published on Breitbart, the “ReidOut” host berated the “religious right” for making abortion their main issue. Her comments come on the heels of a leaked draft opinion by Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito that would purportedly overturn Roe v. Wade. 

“The reality is that this movement grew out of a deeply segregationist movement and then belatedly latched on to abortion because it was better PR, to be blunt,” said Reid. 

“What does it mean that the victims of this ruling are going to be disproportionately the very same people who were subject to segregation, black and brown folks, indigenous people, people who have been beaten down over the course of the history that they no longer want us to learn?” 

Reid compared Alito attempting to overturn Roe v. Wade to the Plessy ruling that said black people get to have no rights because they never had rights. 

Plessy v. Ferguson was a landmark 1896 U.S. Supreme Court decision that upheld the constitutionality of racial segregation under the “separate but equal” doctrine.
