On Tuesday, Glenn joined Megyn Kelly on Fox News’ The Kelly File to discuss a range of topics. From the Supreme Court’s 5-4 decision in favor of religious freedom in Burwell vs. Hobby Lobby Stores, Inc. to Attorney General Eric Holder’s latest race baiting remarks, Glenn explained why partisan politics have reached a peak in the United States.
Democrats are now calling for a reversal of the Supreme Court ruling in the Hobby Lobby case, which decided Obamacare cannot force for-profit, closely held companies to violate their religious beliefs by paying for emergency contraceptive coverage that could lead to abortions. Kelly, an attorney, chastised the left’s “blatant mischaracterizing” of the decision. Glenn agreed the debate has gotten out of hand, and he said it is time for the divisiveness to end.
“I am so done with the left and the right and I’m so done with the talking points of both the Republicans and the Democrats. I’m so done with the Boogey Man… It’s so divisive, what’s happening to us,” Glenn said. “We all play a role in the divisiveness or the uniting of our country every day, every word that we choose. Me and you at home. We just have to say, ‘No more. I’m not gonna play that game. I’m not going to play into your fear mongering of bad boogeymen.’”
Kelly also asked Glenn to respond to Holder’s comments from a recent interview with ABC News’ This Week in which he doubled down on the idea that he and President Obama are judged because of their race. Holder, who is the first black attorney general, claims he faces a “certain level of vehemence” because he is black. He went on to say there is a “racial animus” in this country.
The comments did not sit well with Glenn, who condemned Holder’s “pure partisan politics.” Glenn has absolutely no issue with Holder’s race. Instead, he has an issue with the way he does his job.
“I am so deeply saddened by Eric Holder and the way he views his own office,” Glenn said.
