Joe Biden's call for unity is more than merely disingenuous, it is also completely detached from reality, according to media personality Megyn Kelly on Newsmax TV.
"Biden tweeted out late Saturday night, 'a nation unified, a nation strengthened, a nation healed' — OK, so, no it isn't!" Kelly told Monday's "Greg Kelly Reports." "It's not even close.
"That was written by a man in his basement for the past year," she continued to host Greg Kelly, no relation. "Because the nation's extremely divided right now, extremely divided. And you need to look no further than Joe Biden's own party."
Biden's speech Saturday night was called out by Megyn Kelly as being hypocritical, because he alienated all those who voted for President Donald Trump while claiming he can bring them to support him.
"Biden's been saying this all along: He's the unifier, he's the one that's going to bring us together," she said. "It sounds delightful. It sounds great, and I want that. I want world peace and I want all the puppies and kittens to be adopted.
"But, let's get real. It's not connected to the reality on the ground in this country right now. And the only reason you're hearing Biden and all these Democrats calling for it is because they won. It's only the person that wins that says, 'let's have unity.'
"But what has he been doing for the past four years, Greg? They have been calling all of the Trump supporters — not just Trump, that would be bad enough — all his supporters racists, bigots, xenophobes, misogynists, sexists, transphobes.
"Now it's: 'That stuff we said, we're good, right? Aren't we good? Get over here — group hug.'"
Megyn Kelly rebuked Democrats like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez for calling to put Trump backers on an "accountability list."
"The people who voted for Trump now need to be on the accountability list," she rebuked. "And what are they going to do? They're going to try to stop you from getting a job. They're going to try to blackball you.
"They're going to try to stop you — they said it explicitly — they're going to try to stop you from getting any sort of a publishing deal."
The legal fight over the election is not over, even if the margins make it a longshot, but the Trump campaign deserves its days in court and the election deserves to have "its tires kicked," particularly the legal actions in Pennsylvania, Megyn Kelly said.
"Of all the legal challenges, that's my favorite, because the courts had no business jumping in, when managing elections is the business of the legislators," Megyn Kelly, who is also a lawyer, said. "And, so, it shouldn't have done that. I understand, it was COVID and they wanted different rules, but too bad.
"These judges had no business jumping in there, and I think it really did change the effect of the election. And these are serious matters. People need to have faith in the election, and there's a reason they don't just let some judges take care of it.
"I also don't want to raise your audience's expectations to an unreasonable level. This is a very uphill battle for him at this point."
