When Joe Biden came into office last January, the country was in turmoil. The vaccine was not widely available yet, and the economy was struggling. The president has done his best, and the economy is back on track. And people who’ve been vaccinated have primarily avoided getting seriously sick and dying of COVID.
It would be best for the country for Biden to be successful. But it wouldn’t be best for Conservative media. Fox’s Jesse Watters admitted this during a Monday episode of The Five.
Referring to the president’s dealings with Progressive Democrats, Watters said, “But he’s met them halfway. He’s given them open borders and reckless spending. They’re still not happy. They want 100% of their agenda. They want total control over your life. But do I feel sorry for Joe Biden? No. I work at Fox. I wanna see disarray on the left. It’s good for America. It’s good for our ratings.”
The Fox host continued, “I want to see this guy primaried by rich liberals, crazy liberals, so much so that they can hit the threshold to pop the debate so he has to argue with communists about whether they’re going to fund solar-paneled slavery reparations.”
