Fox News’ Harris Faulkner expressed her strong disapproval towards Fox News liberal contributor Marie Harf on Wednesday, stemming from Harf’s reluctance to discuss inflation.
Faulkner referenced a headline from The New York Times: “Democrats, Popcorn in Hand, Root For A Rowdy G.O.P. Debate.” This headline suggests that Democrats are eagerly anticipating Republicans to engage in heated debates, potentially benefiting President Joe Biden. Faulkner highlighted Biden’s relaxed demeanor as he vacations in Nevada, ahead of the anticipated Republican debates.
Shifting her attention, Faulkner mentioned an advertisement campaign from the Biden administration. This campaign showcases a Milwaukee mother praising Bidenomics for its positive impact on her family.
“Did they get actors to do this, Marie, cause I don’t know a lot of people who say that 3%, which is the prices rising still on top of the already really high prices that we had when it was cooking at 9% inflation last year, I’m not hearing that Biden economics is the reason why they even think they can go forward in any better fashion,” Faulkner said.
“Well look, there are a lot of communities around this country who have directly benefited from Joe Biden’s economic policies, whether it’s manufacturing returning, whether it’s projects that have come about through his legislative wins, but $25 million is a big ad-buy for this early in the cycle, they are playing this right in the White House,” Harf said.
“Joe Biden should continue being president, we did this in 2012. Barack Obama kept being president, we let the Republican primary play out, and they’re betting on the fact that the eventual nominee will be so hurt by the primary, will have to take positions so far to the right that are deeply unpopular with the general electorate that they won’t be able to win next November. So look, let them roll around in the mud together and contrast–”
“Wow,” Faulkner interjected. “Rolling around in the mud? Really?”
“I mean, that’s what primaries are, right?” Harf retorted, appearing taken aback.
Faulkner countered, “Or they could just be having a great conversation and I know that the name calling and all of that is what you’re really thirsty for on the left because then you can start to marginalize people. But the fact of the matter is you didn’t tell me how food prices are gonna come down. That’s what people care about.”
“They already have!” Harf asserted.
“Where?” Faulkner responded with a stern expression.
“They already have,” Harf reiterated, before co-panelist Charlie Hurt intervened.
Recent data indicates that inflation levels persisted at 3.2% year-over-year in July, a slight increase from 3.0% in June. Notably, inflation reached its peak in June of 2022, registering at 9.1%.
