This week on Fox News, host Kayleigh McEnany expressed concerns about President Joe Biden potentially being overly aggressive in his upcoming debate with former President Donald Trump. In an interview with Sean Hannity, McEnany, who served as press secretary during the Trump administration, shared insights from the debate preparations they conducted for Trump in 2020.

“We are going to see a different Joe — ‘State-of-the-Union’ Joe,” McEnany said. “The risk he runs is coming out hot because this man has a tendency to get angry — and anger is not a good look for him.” The former Trump administration press secretary went on to predict that Biden’s advisers may be coaching him to not talk about his record, which has been horrendous on a number of fronts: immigration, the economy, personal finances, and interest rates, to name a few.

“I was watching some CNN reporting two days ago and the advisers around Joe Biden have told him be careful not to talk about your record over the last three years, don’t harp on that, look forward not back,” McEnany said. “I can’t imagine a scenario where anyone around [President Trump] … would have looked at him and said ‘Don’t talk about your last four years, Mr. President.” She added: “He had a record to stand on — Joe Biden’s advisers are saying ‘Don’t talk about what you’ve done.’ How troubling is that?”

RealClearPolitics co-founder Tom Bevan discussed on the outlet’s radio show earlier this week recent polling shifts monitored by his organization that are bad news for Biden and his Democratic Party as they attempt to hold onto the White House and Senate while trying to win back control of the House in the fall elections.

“The Democrats had taken a lead in the RCP Generic Congressional Ballot around the end of April and held over a 1-point lead, which is higher than they’ve had this entire cycle, by the way. That stayed basically through the month of May. But Republicans have recently had a good round of polls and moved ahead in our average to be up 1.3 points,” Bevan explained.

“This is important for a couple of reasons. One, it gives you a blunt instrument for looking at how the public views these two parties. The question pollsters ask is, ‘If the election were held today, would you vote for the Republican or the Democrat for congressional office?’ And there are no names attached. So it just gives you a sense of if people are feeling better about one party or the other,” he continued.

“The other reason this is important is that historically, Republicans do better than they poll on this question. So, on Election Day, they typically overperform whatever this number is. So the fact that they’re leading, or ahead at this point, is a pretty positive sign for the Republican Party,” he said. “This is one of those things that if you go back and look, historically, Democrats would need to be ahead in this number to have a good chance at winning back the House, winning the Senate, and potentially winning the presidency. So it’s just another tool we use to monitor things, and Republicans have seen an uptick in just the last month.”
