LISA BOOTHE (FOX NEWS CONTRIBUTOR): Look at the enemies of this administration. First of all, us. We're on that list.

But it's freedom-loving Americans, it's police officers and firefighters who don't want or need to get vaccinated, it's parents who care about what their kids are being taught, and not wanting their kids to be indoctrinated by government-run schools. It's people who wear hats that say Make America Great Again. These are the enemies of this administration.

But I think it's having the opposite effect in a sense. It's hardening positions and hardening opposition against this administration because ultimately what it all comes down to is the desire for Joe Biden to control, the desire to force his opponents to submit to him, and what he doesn't like or what he doesn't like seeing is parents standing up for freedom, people opposing vaccine mandates because they believe in freedom, and again it's going to have a hardening effect.

Even myself, so I'm not vaccinated, and before I wasn't getting vaccinated because I as a 36-year-old woman with no underlying conditions have a 99.97% chance of survival against COVID. So I was on the fence because it didn't make sense to get vaccinated for a virus that is not a threat to my life nor one that I fear, but now I'm doubling down as a giant middle finger to Joe Biden's tyranny because now it's a fight for freedom, now it's a fight against tyranny in America and that's what this is all about. We are literally fighting right now, Dan, for the future of this country. Are we going to be a free America or not? And that's ultimately what this all comes down to. And I know you believe it. I've seen you, you've take a strong stance on vaccine mandates which encourages people like me as well, but this is such a fight, Dan, and you know it – and the audience knows it.

DAN BONGINO (HOST): No, I know it. I'm glad you're giving them the middle finger. I want to recommend the double-barrelled middle finger, it's twice as effective.
