A Fox News panel ripped into President Joe Biden on Wednesday, saying that his recent attacks only proved that he was running a presidential campaign against America itself.
Former White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany joined her co-hosts on the network’s midday panel show “Outnumbered,” and she argued that Biden was beginning his campaign — but that instead of running against a specific opponent like former President Donald Trump, he was running against his own people.
“He’s running against America,” @kayleighmcenany says of Biden. “His opponent is not Trump, it’s not DeSantis, not whomever, but half of the country. The ‘semi-fascists,’ the ‘F-15 people.'” @OutnumberedFNC pic.twitter.com/Bbl03jJ7Kv

“Well, forget that inauguration day promise of unity. President Biden again going on the attack, this time mocking supporters of the Second Amendment yesterday,” McEnany began, sharing a video clip of Biden speaking on Tuesday in Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania.
“For those brave, right-wing Americans who say, ‘It is all about keeping Americans independent and safe,’ if you want to fight against a country you need an F-15. You need something more than a gun. I’m not joking. Think about this. Think about the rationale we use, that’s used to provide this, and who are they shooting at? They are shooting at these guys behind me.”
“And this is why he goes to bed early,” McEnany quipped as the video ended.
Army veteran Brett Velicovich weighed in then, saying, “It is continued gaffes for him. He was talking about how an AR-15 bullet shoots faster than any other round and that’s not true. He is talking about how an AR-15 just chops people in half. Any veteran knows that is not true, it’s about precision from that weapon.”
“And these continued lies that he puts out there,” Velicovich continued, arguing that the Second Amendment was the reason Americans were able to keep themselves safe, adding, “We should not take that away in a time we need them the most.”
“That is exactly right,” McEnany replied. “I can’t help but watch the things he says and think that this president thinks he is running against half the country. I think he really thinks that he is in a presidential campaign right now and his opponent is not Trump, it’s not DeSantis, not whomever, but it’s half of the country — it’s the ‘semi-fascists,’ the ‘F-15 people.’ He’s running against America.”
