Laura Ingraham: Joe Biden’s campaign seems like Hillary 2016 all over again

The 2020 Democratic presidential candidacy of former Vice President Joe Biden is starting to look familiar, Fox News’ Laura Ingraham said Tuesday.

In fact, she said, it’s beginning to look a lot like Hillary Clinton‘s 2016 campaign.

“Biden, like Hillary, is willing to jettison his long-held political positions to try to win over the radical elements of his party,” Ingraham said in her opening monologue on “The Ingraham Angle.”

For example, Ingraham said that Clinton, while secretary of state from 2009 to 2013, supported the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade framework while in office. But when she ran for president in 2016 she said the TPP “didn’t meet my standards.”

Ingraham added that Biden also supported the trade pact while vice president, citing an Associated Press report from 2015.

“Mr. Flip, meet Mrs. Flop,” Ingraham said. “His ancient position of four years ago was the establishment Democrat position.”

She added Biden is campaigning in a similar way to Clinton in moving farther to the political left to satisfy the activist wing of the Democratic Party.

“Biden, like Hillary, is trying to placate the socialists in the ranks of the party — to blunt the candidacies of [Sen. Elizabeth] Warren and [Sen. Bernie] Sanders,” she said.

In addition, Ingraham noted how some liberal media personalities are not warming to Biden’s candidacy.

Reacting to a report that some Biden allies had suggested the candidate scale back campaign appearances to prevent gaffes, “The Young Turks” host Cenk Uygur said the development was troubling.

“When you’re trying to hide the candidate, that probably means you don’t have a good candidate,” Uygur said on his program.

Ingraham later said she believed Biden’s presidential bid is beginning, “to feel like the Hillary campaign.”

“Biden’s campaign is looking like a bad sequel — Hillary 2.0.”

Hannity: Biden a ‘nonstop human gaffe machine’ who got a tepid endorsement from wife

Westlake Legal Group hannity1111 Hannity: Biden a 'nonstop human gaffe machine' who got a tepid endorsement from wife fox-news/shows/hannity fox-news/politics/elections/presidential fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/joe-biden fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz article 0f0772c2-064c-566f-a7a8-7344c45e2c05

Fox News’ Sean Hannity questioned former Vice President Joe Biden’s electoral viability, saying the Democrat’s wife offered only a tepid endorsement of her husband.

“He’s supposed to be the experienced, confident front-runner in a crowded field of candidates. In reality, he is a walking disaster,” Hannity said Tuesday.

The host said Dr. Jill Biden’s appeal to voters in regard to her husband’s ability to defeat President Trump was underwhelming at best.

“Biden also received another glowing endorsement from his own wife. She told voters to hold their nose, swallow a little and make the sensible choice,” he said.

JILL BIDEN TO VOTERS: YOU MAY HAVE TO ‘SWALLOW A LITTLE BIT’ WITH MY HUSBAND SO WE CAN BEAT TRUMP

“With enthusiasm like that from his own wife, I’m sure Biden has this nomination locked right down,” Hannity added sarcastically.

In remarks aired on MSNBC, Dr. Biden said Americans should be mortified by the incumbent president’s demeanor.

“You know we have to include everybody, our party has to be more inclusive, which means we have to go to independents and say ‘join us,’ we have to go to Republicans and say ‘OK, you’re a Republican, but you can’t tell me that your children are proud of the president, you know, of the things he says and, you know, as a mother or as a father, I mean, how can you be proud of that president as a leader?”

She continued, “So yes, you know, your candidate might be better on, I don’t know, healthcare than Joe is, but you’ve got to look at who’s going to win this election, and maybe you have to swallow a little bit and say, ‘OK, I personally like so and so better,’ but your bottom line has to be that we have to beat Trump.”

On his show, Hannity said Biden was part of a presidential ticket that was a disaster for the country.

“By now we all know that the Obama-Biden record — that was a complete and utter failure,” he said.

With enthusiasm like that from your own wife, I’m sure Biden has this nomination locked right down

— Sean Hannity

He added Biden’s proclivity to commit public gaffes is hurting his image, pointing to one example at a recent debate where the former vice president appeared to invite supporters to “go to” a text-only phone number as if it were a website address.

“We also know that ‘Joe 3-0-3-3-0’ — which meant nothing — he’s a nonstop human gaffe machine,” Hannity said.

Ingraham: Liberals ‘rooting against America’ because they’re ‘furious’ they might lose in 2020

Westlake Legal Group laura11 Ingraham: Liberals 'rooting against America' because they're 'furious' they might lose in 2020 fox-news/us/democratic-party fox-news/shows/ingraham-angle fox-news/politics/elections/democrats fox-news/politics/2020-presidential-election fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/news-events/russia-investigation fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz article 1e93f5d3-a482-5b54-88e7-86a45dc980c3

Fox News’ Laura Ingraham took on members of the Democratic Party for what she said was “rooting against America” and disparaging supporters of President Trump, and said the left is largely “furious” they may lose the 2020 election to the New York Republican.

“Rooting against America, referring to millions of voters as ‘deplorables’ or ‘racists’ or bigot-coddlers is not the language of a confident optimistic party,” she said Monday on “The Ingraham Angle.”

“It is the language of people who are furious that they could lose another presidential election,” she said.

Ingraham said Democrats were hoping former Special Counsel Robert Mueller would be a key figure in their attempts to damage the president, as the Russia investigation concluded.

INGRAHAM CALLS OUT DEMS: ‘THEY ARE THROWING KEROSENE ON A FIRE’

“Trump’s reckoning — they were confident — would be delivered by the highly respected prosecutor Bob Mueller. In other words, the 2020 election would be a ‘gimme’ for any Democrat,” she said.

More recently, Democrats have lodged racism claims against the president, she said.

More from media

“The crestfallen Dems decided to go all-in on the race issue. “The Angle” told you this would happen. Using bogus charges of racism, the left has a goal of blunting any momentum the president may have with minority voters in 2020.”

“The president condemned white nationalists in Charlottesville and El Paso,” she added. However, she pointed to three 2020 Democratic hopefuls who have invoked the race issue.

When a CNN anchor asked former Rep. Beto O’Rourke, D-Texas, whether the president is a “white nationalist,” the ex-lawmaker answered in the affirmative.

In another interview, Washington Gov. Jay Inslee declared it is “time to get white nationalism out of the White House.”

In Ingraham’s third example, South Bend, Ind. Mayor Pete Buttigieg was asked whether it is a “racist act” to vote for Trump in 2020.

The 37-year-old responded that “at best, it means looking the other way on racism.”

Summing up the clips, Ingraham said some of the commentaries from the left shows Trump supporters are becoming occasional subjects of ridicule.

“The new Democratic playbook requires the relentless demonization of American history, including the founders, and now the American people themselves — at least the ones who support Trump.”

Boothe: Biden supporters should consider why Obama isn’t openly backing him

Westlake Legal Group biden1 Boothe: Biden supporters should consider why Obama isn't openly backing him fox news fnc/media fnc f842e6cf-141b-5450-81f8-dc605d2002c0 Charles Creitz article

Former Vice President Joe Biden isn’t receiving the customary support of the president he served under, which should be a red flag to voters, according to Fox News contributor Lisa Boothe.

Former President Barack Obama appeared to support Hillary Clinton over Biden in 2016 race as well, Boothe claimed Monday on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“It wasn’t just reported that in 2020 President Obama tried to get him not to run, but also in 2016 as well,” she said.

“There were reports that President Obama thought that Hillary Clinton would be the more formidable candidate — would be the stronger candidate of the two.”

JESSE WATTERS: ELIZABETH WARREN’S NATIVE AMERICAN APOLOGY RINGS HOLLOW BECAUSE SHE ‘STOLE THEIR IDENTITY’

In that regard, other figures in Obama’s circle, like former aide David Axelrod, have been critical of his 2020 run.

She said those instances should be translated as reason why Biden may not make it through the primary.

More from media

“Why put your faith in a candidate when the people closest to him seem to doubt his ability?” she asked of Democratic voters.

Over the weekend, Biden praised Republicans as “decent people” at a Massachusetts fundraiser while touting his ability to work across the aisle, according to a report.

“There’s an awful lot of really good Republicans out there,” the former vice president told the audience, according to The Hill.

“I get in trouble for saying that with Democrats, but the truth of the matter is, every time we ever got in trouble with our administration, remember who got sent up to Capitol Hill to fix it? Me. Because they know I respect the other team.”

He said congressional Republicans ran because they “care about things,” but are afraid to be at odds with President Trump.

“They’re intimidated right now,” he told the audience, The Hill reported.

Fox News’ Brie Stimson contributed to this report.

Fox News’ Sean Hannity condemned radical protesters from both political extremes who demonstrated in Portland, Ore., over the weekend, saying there is no place in the United States for physical violence in pursuit of political ends.

“To each and every single person on either side that has an extreme agenda, you must stop this insanity — this lawlessness,” Hannity said Monday night.

The host said violence among both left-wing Antifa protesters and right-wing white nationalist and neo-Nazi groups must be quashed by authorities whenever it pops up.

“Police need to stop this and end it and drop it right when it starts,” he said.

“This kind of behavior is unacceptable, it’s insane, it’s despicable, it’s violence, it’s extremism, and it’s hurting our country.”

He called for both sides to take their frustrations out in a more constructive way.

“Let’s not forget, we can have political disagreements but at the end of the day, we are all Americans. We’re all created equal. We’re all one nation under God.”

“In the United States, political differences — we solve them at the ballot box… We don’t need fists and baseball bats and mace.”

Hannity affirmed his and his show’s commitment to call out hate groups, racism and public acts of violence in any form.

“This show will always condemn hatred on any side,” he said adding that both the Antifa and white supremacist factions have one thing in common.

“They’re all tied to sick, ugly, twisted, evil ideologies.”

Geraldo: Tlaib’s canceled trip should cause outrage, Palestinian territory being ‘occupied’

Westlake Legal Group Rashida-Tlaib Geraldo: Tlaib's canceled trip should cause outrage, Palestinian territory being 'occupied' fox-news/world/world-regions/israel fox-news/shows/the-story fox-news/politics/house-of-representatives fox-news/person/rashida-tlaib fox-news/person/ilhan-omar fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/benjamin-netanyahu fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox news fnc/media fnc ee265a34-a3cc-5f07-a222-a6ccd753efdb Charles Creitz article

President Trump rightfully supports the state of Israel, but the Netanyahu government should not have barred Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., from visiting, according to Geraldo Rivera.

People living in Palestinian territory are being denied rights and Tlaib was similarly denied the ability to visit her grandmother, Rivera claimed Monday on “The Story.”

“As a Jewish-American, and as a fervent Zionist who believes deeply in the right of Israel to exist, I am comforted by President Trump’s support of Israel,” he said.

“I also think it is absolutely outrageous that two sitting members of the Congress of the United States of America… were denied entry into the country. I’m shocked that the ambassador did not mention 52 years of Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories.”

TLAIB GETS EMOTIONAL AS OMAR CALLS FOR CONGRESS TO ACT OVER ISRAEL TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS

Prior to Rivera’s remarks, Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon discussed the situation with host Martha MacCallum.

In his interview, Rivera explained why he found it wrong for Israel to deny Tlaib entry at first. Officials later said they would allow Tlaib to visit, but the Michigan Democrat declined.

More from media

“These are people being denied their human rights. They can’t freely travel,” he said.

“The fact that the congresswoman from Detroit could not go and visit her grandmother… if it was any other country that took this action, we would all be outraged.”

MacCallum then allowed Danon to respond to Rivera’s claims.

“[T]alk about the facts,” he said.

“She was allowed to come to visit her grandmother, then she decided not to accept that invitation because she wanted to come and create a provocation,” Danon said. “Let’s speak to the facts… Maybe you should leave your provocational politics here in the U.S. and not bring it to our territory.”

Danon added Israel would like to solve the historic territory issue but said Palestinian officials are not an example of a “viable partner” for negotiations.

In closing, Rivera criticized former Assistant U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Andrew McCarthy – who was also on set – for doubting the veracity of characterizing the Palestinian territory as an “occupied” territory.

“I’ve been to Ramallah and Bethlehem. I have friends in the West Bank. I see that they cannot travel freely… This is an occupied country,” he said, also reiterating he is proud to support Israel’s right to exist as well.

Jesse Watters: Elizabeth Warren’s Native American apology rings hollow because she ‘stole their identity’

Democratic presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren’s latest apology for previously claiming Native American heritage should fall on deaf ears, according to Jesse Watters.

Watters criticized Warren Monday on “The Five,” going as far as to suggest she would be an easy opponent for President Trump in 2020.

“She’s got terrible political instincts and she’s a phony,” he said, adding the Massachusetts Democrat appeared to have “scrubbed” from her campaign website the video in which she reveals her DNA results.

“What she did to Native Americans was, some people say, a lot worse than what Trump’s done to minorities. Think about what she did — she stole their identity.”

WARREN APOLOGIZES TO NATIVE AMERICANS FOR ANCESTRY CLAIMS: ‘I HAVE MADE MISTAKES’

On Monday, Warren told a Native American forum in Sioux City, Iowa, she was sorry for any harm she caused the community.

More from media

“Like anyone who has been honest with themselves, I know I have made mistakes,” she said.

Elaborating on his claim, Watters said he believed Warren adopted Native American ethnicity to help herself to the detriment of others.

“She used that fake identity to suppress minorities’ access to higher education jobs and then she profited from the fake identity,” he said, nodding to the fact Warren was employed at Harvard.

“When she got busted on it when President Trump mocked her, she said, ‘Oh, that’s an ethnic slur: Pocahontas’ — that’s about as an ethnic slur as ‘Fredo,’ it doesn’t make any sense,” Watters said.

Last week, CNN anchor Chris Cuomo, the brother of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo and son of former Gov. Mario Cuomo, became incensed by a man who referred to him as “Fredo,” a character from “The Godfather.” The newsman claimed in an expletive-laden response he saw the remark as an ethnic slur against Italian-Americans.

On “The Five,” Watters also explained why Warren would have trouble facing off with Trump.

He said the president’s “Pocahontas” nickname stuck and is complemented by what he called her “irritating demeanor.”

“It’s another landslide victory for the president if she gets the nomination.”

Charlie Hurt: Biden’s gaffes must be ‘hugely embarrassing’ to Obama

Former Vice President Joe Biden’s gaffes during his Democratic presidential campaign must be frustrating for former President Barack Obama, according to Charlie Hurt.

In addition, Hurt said, a published report that Obama advised Biden in early 2019 that he did not have to seek the presidency in 2020 is not a positive development for Biden.

“This has been his shtick for 45 years in Washington,” Hurt said Friday on “Hannity,” referring to Biden’s gaffes. “That’s why he’s never managed to get the nomination for president. It’s why the closest he’s ever come to the White House was being handpicked by Barack Obama to be his vice president.”

OBAMA REPORTEDLY TOLD BIDEN HE DIDN’T HAVE TO RUN IN 2020

The Fox News contributor added that Biden has not been a great ambassador for the Obama presidency.

“Think about this for a minute: Think about how embarrassed Barack Obama must be to have this guy trying to go out there and uphold Obama’s legacy,” he said. “It’s got to be hugely embarrassing.”

More from media

Regarding the New York Times report about Obama’s assessment of Biden’s presidential aspirations, Hurt considered whether someone in the ex-president’s orbit spoke with the paper.

“Who leaked this stuff?” he asked. “The only people that could have leaked all this stuff to the New York Times was Barack Obama’s people. And, I mean — what a shiv in the back.”

Guest host Gregg Jarrett added Biden has been attacked in primary debates for his connection to some of Obama’s policies.

In the Times story, Obama reportedly told Biden, “You don’t have to do this Joe, you really don’t.”

Obama reportedly “took pains to cast his doubts about the campaign in personal terms.”

Speculation has swirled over the decision by Obama to so far refrain from endorsing Biden formally. Still, despite Obama’s early hesitation, he has taken a much more involved role in Biden’s campaign than in the efforts of other candidates, The Times reported.

On 75th anniversary of WWII ‘Operation Dragoon,’ paratrooper recalls dropping into French Riviera

Seventy-five years ago this week, American and French forces invaded Nazi-occupied southern France in a mission that was supposed to coincide with D-Day to the north.

Michigan veteran Roland Barhyte recalled the so-called “forgotten invasion” in an interview Friday on “The Story.”

“It was kind of surprising, in that we were one of the few to make daylight jumps,” he said.

“Most paratroop drops were done in the darkness — before dawn if possible. Our actual jump and landing and assembling on the ground was rather uneventful because there were no enemy troops firing at us — thank goodness.”

During the operation, Barhyte and his unit, the 551st Parachute Infantry Regiment, moved along the Mediterranean coast, liberating cities from Nazi control.

Many of the soldiers were to move north, pushing the Nazi units toward those Allies who had invaded Normandy that June, according to MLive.

In his interview, Barhyte also recalled his service in the Battle of the Bulge in late 1944 and early 1945.

At one point, he said his feet were so badly frozen, it felt like he was, “walking on bowling balls.”

He was taken to a hospital in Belgium to be treated.

“That was the last combat that I actually saw,” he said of the famous skirmish in the Ardennes.

Starting on Aug. 15, 1944, French and American troops — 350,000 in total — landed on the French Riviera. U.S. forces drove north while French troops — many from French colonies in Africa — moved along the coast to secure key ports. Marseille was liberated on Aug. 28.

Soldiers from the Normandy landings, known as Operation Overlord, met troops from Operation Dragoon on Sept. 12 near Dijon, in the eastern region of Burgundy. Most of France was under control of Allied forces by the end of September.

Gutfeld: Rep. Rashida Tlaib’s Israel ‘stunt’ used grandma as ‘Trojan horse’

Westlake Legal Group Netanyahu-split Gutfeld: Rep. Rashida Tlaib's Israel 'stunt' used grandma as 'Trojan horse' fox-news/world/world-regions/israel fox-news/shows/the-five fox-news/politics/foreign-policy/middle-east fox-news/person/rashida-tlaib fox-news/person/ilhan-omar fox-news/person/donald-trump fox-news/person/benjamin-netanyahu fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/entertainment/media fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz article 8759eabb-22d1-56df-af8e-da076ae2295b

Events surrounding a now-curtailed trip to Israel by Rep. Rashida Tlaib, D-Mich., show the freshman lawmaker wanted to cause trouble, according to Greg Gutfeld.

However, Gutfeld’s co-host Juan Williams claimed Friday on “The Five” that it was President Trump who had acted inappropriately in regard to the itinerary.

“She wrote a letter saying she dearly needed to see her very old grandmother,” Gutfeld said of the Detroit-area Democrat.

“And, Israel approved. And then she said, ‘Ah, you know what, I’m not going to do it.’ So, she used her elderly grandmother as a prop for a stunt.

“Let’s not forget the trip that she was planning … was put together or planned with an anti-Semitic group.”

Gutfeld added Tlaib’s actions showed Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his administration acted responsibly in the matter.

“If someone is going to your house specifically to vandalize it or destroy it, you shouldn’t have them there,” he said.

“Then she used her grandmother as a Trojan horse to get in. It’s disgusting.”

However, Williams had another view, instead calling Trump’s actions “disgusting.”

ISRAEL BLOCKS OMAR, TLAIB FROM ENTERING COUNTRY AMID PRESSURE FROM TRUMP

President Trump going to a foreign country and saying that a member of our Congress can’t travel to your country — and our president is working against the U.S. government? It’s outrageous,” he said.

“He wants to make these four somehow the face of the Democratic Party,” he said of progressive freshman House members, Tlaib among them, who comprise “the Squad.”

In making the initial decision preventing entry in an official capacity, Netanyahu said travel plans by Tlaib and Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn., referred to a trip to “Palestine,” not Israel, and the congresswomen were not interested in meeting with Israeli officials.

He went on to note that the Palestinian organization that planned the visit, MIFTAH, supports the boycott-Israel movement, and that people associated with the group have supported terror against Israel in the past.

However, in a letter sent to Interior Minister Aryeh Deri, Tlaib had requested a chance to visit her Palestinian grandmother, who lives in the West Bank, according to The Jerusalem Post.

“This could be my last opportunity to see her,” Tlaib wrote of her grandmother, who is in her 90s. “I will respect any restrictions and I will not promote any boycotts against Israel during my visit.”

Tlaib was later given permission to visit, but the Michigan lawmaker turned down the offer.

“I have decided that visiting my grandmother under these oppressive conditions stands against everything I believe in–fighting against racism, oppression & injustice,” she tweeted.

“I can’t allow the State of Israel to take away that light by humiliating me and use my love for my sity to bow down to their oppressive and racist policies.”

On Thursday, Trump said in a tweet it would show “great weakness” for Israel to allow the two congresswomen into the country.
