LAURA INGRAHAM (HOST): The left, it is Donald Trump who is dividing the country. It's a very simple measure for them. It is he who is responsible for the toxic atmosphere, it's his tweets, it's his calling them "s-hole" countries, it's Charlottesville, and it's all because of Trump.
CHRISTOPHER METZLER: Yeah, well, actually, it's all about the left. And particularly, if you look at somebody like Maxine Waters, for example, who is divider-in-chief -- if you look at a number of the things that she says, if you look at all this conversation around why people of color should not vote for Trump because he's a racist -- it is the left and their failed policies that are responsible for the division.
The Obama administration was probably one of the most divisive administrations in history, and now you're telling me this is all Trump's fault? Please.
INGRAHAM: Well, it's like when they will write about Viktor Orbán in Hungary, or Salvini in Italy, like, "Oh, these nationalist populists, they're destroying Europe" -- and they think that these people just popped out of nowhere.
If incomes had been rising, and the middle class felt secure, and the borders weren't open, and their culture was intact, then people wouldn't be clamoring for a different way.
But they clamored for a new way and a more nation-centered focus because they felt like they were losing their nations at the hands of the globalists.
That's -- the globalists divided these countries up, and yet they blame the -- they blame the person who comes in to try to fix it.
