Former Fox News star Megyn Kelly has dropped the hammer on Joe Biden, accusing the Democrat president of trying to “mislead us at every turn.”
Kelly took aim at Biden today during an interview with former Democratic presidential candidate Marianne Williamson on “The Megyn Kelly Show.”
Williamson tried to defend Biden but Kelly stepped in and unloaded on the president.
“Whether it’s Biden that is behaving in an outrageous way or it is Trump behaving in an outrageous way, we shouldn’t respond to these things just as Republicans or Democrats,” Williamson said.
‘We should respond to them as Americans.”
Kelly responded: “We see Joe Biden do things like the eviction moratorium, which he knew, he knew was unlawful.
“And the same thing with the mandate on the vaccines, he knew it was going to get struck down but he did it anyway.
“If we’re going to be based in reality, let’s be based in reality.
“And this president misleads us at every turn — and the media misleads us at every turn.
“When it comes to media when it comes to ‘Russiagate,’ I mean, and we’re supposed to just look at the ‘orange man bad’ and blame it all on him,” she said.
“We turned the conservative movement into a working people’s movement, and the Republican Party into a working people’s party. And we are never ever going back.” – President Donald J. Trump

Kelly isn’t the only one unhappy with Joe Biden, however.
Swing state Democrats up for reelection have been distancing themselves from the president in the hopes of saving their jobs in the midterms.
Biden’s drag on swing-state incumbents is emerging as a pivotal factor in the midterm Senate elections, where the loss of just one Democratic-held seat in November could put Republicans in control.
Acutely aware of the need to get distance from the president, the four most endangered Democratic incumbents — Arizona Sen. Mark Kelly, Georgia Sen. Raphael Warnock, Nevada Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto and New Hampshire Sen. Maggie Hassan — are increasingly taking steps to highlight their independence from the president and underscore their differences.
Their public pushback against Biden’s plan to lift the Trump-era border restriction known as Title 42 is the most visible expression of the effort to get distance from the president.
But the four Democrats are also finding other ways of signaling to voters.
They’ve visited the border wall and blocked his nominees. A month before a Trump-appointed judge struck down Biden’s mask mandate on mass transit, three of the four voted in favor of a Republican bill to do just that.
