Former Biden Campaign Surrogate Kevin Walling and Fox News host Harris Faulkner spat Thursday after Walling compared the border crisis to the House debate on the speakership role.
President Joe Biden is set to visit the southern border for the first time ever, potentially arriving as soon as Sunday, to address the ongoing crisis. Biden plans to visit the El Paso area before heading to Mexico for the North American Leaders’ Summit. Walling praised Biden for his plans, saying he was pleased to see Biden visiting the border and that it was a “positive” sign for the American people.
“You compare that to the chaos we’re seeing in the House of Representatives, you’re seeing real presidential leadership on the border,” Walling said.
“I’m gonna stop you there because I think you’re really going to be angry with yourself when you watch this back and you actually compared people dying at the border to people having political conversations inside the House of Representatives. So I’m going to help save you for yourself.” (RELATED: EXCLUSIVE: ‘Give The Illusion’: Border Patrol Agents, Union President Pour Cold Water On Biden’s Planned Border Visit)
“It’s a good thing to see the president going there,” Walling responded.
The House of Representatives has still not elected a speaker with California Republican Rep. Kevin McCarthy unable to obtain enough support from conservatives. A group of 20 Republicans have rallied in opposition against McCarthy, instead choosing to nominate Arizona Rep. Andy Biggs, Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan and Florida Rep. Byron Donalds.
