Fox News host Kayleigh McEnany discussed the political optics of recent indictments against Donald Trump compared to Joe Biden.

She argued that while Trump’s approval among Republicans remains high as he eyes another presidential run, the indictments make Biden’s DOJ look partisan as Biden enjoys leisure activities.

Kayleigh McEnany said, “If this indictment held, if a conviction was secured, what precedent, applying that retroactively, would have been set in those various circumstances? I think it is a troubling precedent indeed, But rounding this out, I think it’s important to look at what the American people see here when they look at Trump and Biden. I’m talking pure political optics.”

“You look at President Trump, you see a guy with a 53.4 percent RealClearPolitics approval, or I should say that is what he is garnering among Republican voters at this point in time,” said McEnany.

“So, yes, that is true that for all intents and purposes, he looks like he is going on to be the nominee unless there is a big shakeup or polling change. So they see this individual who’s on his way there. They go back to last Wednesday, where you covered the Hunter situation, the plea deal breaks apart, there is this hidden phrase in the diversion agreement and the judge says this is not fair. Fast-forward to yesterday, Tuesday, and you see a second indictment against the former sitting president. You compare that to Biden,” McEnany continued.

McEnany said, “This is his DoJ. And look, he says the DoJ’s independence. Let’s take him at his word.”

She continued, “But optically, what you see is a president at the beach, a president going to dinner and a movie, a president at an Oppenheimer film, and when he walks out, the Politico Playbook says this: ‘Meanwhile, the only public statement from President Biden last night was in response to a shouted question from the pool. ‘It was compelling,’ he answered. The question was how he liked the movie ‘Oppenheimer.’’ So you see someone whose political opponent had been indicted as he enjoys dinner and a movie, and it is, at the end of the day, his Department of Justice piece.”

Fox News’ Emily Compagno said, “That’s right. And the timeline, again, just to underscore, it’s so notable that every time the Hunter Biden situation, the corruption makes the headlines, an indictment seems to drop. June, July, August.”

New Jersey Democrat Dionne Holt said, “Nothing has touched me when it comes to Biden at all that I can say, at least, ‘Yeah, there was a trickle-down.’”

A separate NBC poll found 40% felt Trump’s presidency was better than expected compared to just 14% for Biden, whose handling of issues like the border and economy have 42% saying his term is worse than anticipated.

Independent voters also had far more positive views of Trump’s presidency.

The indictments and Hunter Biden situation have coincided with negative headlines for Biden as dissatisfaction grows among some Democrats over his leadership on issues like Israel-Hamas conflict.
