During an interview with Fox News’ “Watters’ World” on Saturday, March 13, former White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany ripped into President Joe Biden’s “radical” agenda, calling him a “progressive.”

“This was supposed to be moderate Joe Biden, we were told,” McEnany told host Jesse Watters. “But as any other Democrat, he is a radical who wants control via the education system, via COVID relief, creating this massive welfare state, with the Equality Act, which is a power grab on churches and HR1 nationalizing our elections – he supports all of these things. He’s a progressive, he was never a moderate.”

In February, the House passed the Equality Act, a bill that would expand protections to LGBT people and prohibit discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity in credit, jury service and public accommodations. Conservatives have criticized the measure as an attack on religious liberty and unfair to girls’ sports. 

The House passed earlier this month a sweeping election reform and voting rights bill known as H.R. 1 the For The People Act mostly along party lines. Republicans have blasted the measure as a power of grab by Democrats which opens the door for election fraud. Meanwhile the Biden administration strongly advocated for its passage.

Biden had pictured himself as a moderate candidate during his presidential campaign. Biden attacked former President Donald Trump’s “law and order” message toward violent protests and said America would be safer under his lead. 

“Do I look like a radical socialist with a soft spot for rioters?” Biden asked in August, 2020. “I want a safe America—safe from COVID, safe from crime and looting, safe from racially motivated violence, safe from bad cops.”

Former Trump’s press secretary responded at the time: “@JoeBiden you ARE a radical socialist who brought Bernie’s “radical” agenda “mainstream” (in his words). Your campaign also paid to bail out violent rioters with criminal records.” 

Concerning Biden’s immigration policy, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) expressed similar sentiment, calling it the most radical plan that any U.S. president has ever proposed. 

“He proposes every single illegal alien in the United States become an American citizen. Why? Because he believes the vast majority of them will vote Democrat. It’s all about politics,” Cruz told NewsMax. 

“No reasonable, rational person at home is sitting there thinking, ‘we need more murderers, we need more rapists,’ and that’s what Biden’s immigration plan says. It makes no sense,” he added. “And you know, President Trump frequently centered his policies in terms of America First. The Biden administration policy seems to be centered around America Last. Everyone else comes last in line behind illegal immigrants and criminal illegal aliens.”
