Fox News host Dana Perino has praised the U.S former vice-president Joe Biden on his DNC speech he delivered on Thursday evening.
Fox News hasn’t been friendly territory for Biden, but most of the conservative network’s personalities provided praises for the Democratic presidential candidate’s acceptance speech on Thursday night.
Although Trump has attempted to label Joe Biden as “not all there” and “mentally shot” as well as a captive of the far left, Fox News anchor Chris Wallace said President Donald Trump will have a hard time with that argument after Biden’s speech at the Democratic National Convention.
“I thought that he blew a hole, a big hole, in that characterization,” Wallace said. “It seems to me that after tonight, Donald Trump is going to have to run against a candidate, not a caricature.”
Fellow Fox News personality Bret Baier was similarly gushing about Biden’s outstanding performance.
“He’s not known for his public speaking, but this ― I’ve been seeing him speak on the stump many, many times ― was the best he’s been as far as his delivery,” Baier said.
Fox News host Dana Perino said Biden “hit a home run in the bottom of the ninth.”
“He had pace, rhythm, energy, emotion and delivery,” she said. “I think if he looks back, he’s gonna say, that’s probably the best speech of his life,” added Perino.
Even Fox News contributor Karl Rove provided praises, saying Biden introduced himself as a unifier.
“He did so very effectively and if I were a Republican strategist in the Trump campaign, I’d be worried about how long and how effectively he carries that theme forward,” Rove said. “Because that’s the thing that will keep the swing voters in his camp ― if they are in his camp ― or bring them to him.”
