Fox News’ “The Five” too on the topic of impeachment on Wednesday’s edition when co-host Juan Williams called President Donald Trump an “outlaw” and said that the president is using his impeachment inquiry to inspire his supporters.
“Trump right now is spending — I think this week he’s already spent $700,000 on ads,” Williams said according to Fox News. “He said, ‘Well, immigration stirred up the base. I’m going to stir up the base there with talk of impeachment.’ But you know what strikes me is [Senate Majority Leader] Mitch McConnell’s playing along, [saying] ‘oh, this is a coup. This is an attempt to reverse the 2016 election.’ This is absurd.
“This is a constitutional crisis in which a president is acting as an outlaw.”
Fellow host Jedediah Bila who said that Biden’s Wednesday comments where he spoke to Trump’s impeachment for the first time.
“To preserve our Constitution, our democracy, our basic integrity, he should be impeached,” Biden said while speaking at a campaign event in New Hampshire.
Bila said: “I get that Joe Biden needs this really badly to be a headline. He needs the top of everybody’s page when they go to Google to be impeachment, impeachment, impeachment because he doesn’t want you talking about the economy.
“He doesn’t want you talking about border security. He doesn’t want any of the accomplishments that this president has put forth to be highlighted.”
Previously, Williams spoke in an Op-Ed about how he doesn’t believe that the president is actually concerned with his black constituents:
“…Trump is not worried about the black vote. Despite his boasts about the low African American unemployment rate — which saw its largest decline under President Obama — he knows he is unlikely to beat the 8 percent black support he got in 2016,” Williams said.
“Team Trump’s path to reelection depends entirely on maximizing the white vote and playing to white resentment toward immigrants and people of color.
“Even black Republicans like Gregory Cheadle, having taken a chance on Trump, now realize they had a lot to lose.
“Get ready for a race-conscious 2020 campaign.”
