Fox News host praises Kamala Harris rhetoric on abortion

Fox News host Kayleigh McEnany heaped praise on Vice President Harris for her answers to questions on abortion during an appearance on ABC’s “The View” on Wednesday.

During her appearance on the daytime table talk program, Harris blasted Republicans across the country who she said have “banned access to reproductive freedom,” and talked about people who she said are concerned about sending their children to college “in a state where she will have access to the health care she might need, including reproductive health care.”

McEnany, former President Trump’s White House press secretary who is now a co-host of Fox News’s “Outnumbered,” said it was effective of Harris to speak so forcefully about abortion on “The View,” a program that is widely watched by women.

“I disagreed with almost everything she said in this interview, but I will say it was one of her better interviews when it came to style,” McEnany said. “She’s clearly been doing some sort of media training, and she’s been deployed to hit three buckets: progressives where she has more credibility than Joe Biden, young people … she literally said I love Gen Z … and women.”

McEnany noted that when Harris was asked by panelists on “The View” about what she called “low-hanging fruit,” the vice president “pivoted right back to abortion.”

“Because she knows what is true and that is, is the GOP has lost every single abortion ballot initiative post-Roe,” McEnany continued as she rattled off statistics and election results showing the issue of reproductive rights as a major political liability for the GOP. “This is why I’ve implored the GOP as someone who is pro-life myself and adamantly so: Speak from a place of compassion … and be pro-mother, not just pro-baby.”

McEnany suggested Republicans need to change their messaging on abortion “because what Kamala is doing, right or wrong, is very powerful among women.”
