STEVE DOOCY (CO-HOST): Jesse, we're sure you were watching the president last night at Eastern Carolina University at that rally. How would you describe the rally?

JESSE WATTERS (FOX NEWS HOST): Huge. Record numbers, lines out around the block. Listen, you know, the squad's hot, so he has to create a contrast right now. 

BRIAN KILMEADE (CO-HOST): Were you surprised by that? 

WATTERS: No, I was not. I mean, they telegraphed it. It was like Kamala [Harris] swinging a punch at Joe [Biden], you could see that coming a mile away. And he runs down this -- the wicked political rap sheet of [Ilhan] Omar and [Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez]. And the media doesn't report what he says about them, reports what the crowd chants. Now I don't know about you guys, but have you guys ever been to a football game? They chant some pretty bad stuff at a football game. Politics is a tough sport. Some Republicans chanted some things. Some Democrats framed Trump for treason. I think you guys see the difference.
