英国休ume: Division in America 'as bad as it's ever gotten' in post-Civil War era

Fox News senior 政治 analyst Brit Hume told故事Wednesday night that America is more divided right now than at any point in his life, adding that even the period of strife in the late 1960s over the Vietnam Warwasn’t as bad as this.

This is as bad as it’s ever gotten [except] 也许 [during] the Civil War,” Hume told host Martha MacCallum. “So the challenge for leaders at a time like this is [至] attempt to tamp us down, how we find places to agree, 因为 this is poisonous to our country.

Hume credited President Trump for making a video statement Wednesday evening in which the president said heunequivocallycondemned last week’s riot at the U.S. 国会大厦. 然而, the analyst wondered whether the message had come too late.

他补充说, while Trump bears responsibility for spreading false claims about election irregularities, President-elect Joe Biden didn’t help the situation by suggesting last week that police treated the rioters lightly because the crowd was mostly White.

There are a lot of people in this country who believe that we are a nation of systemic racism,” 休ume说. “But there are a great many who believe we are not. It’s a point of deep division in this country, so why he [拜登] would choose on that occasion to feed that is a good question.

He has the job now of trying to unify things. One way you could do it is if you could call off the impeachment dogs, but it may be too late for that.

Hume added that there appears to be no real precedent for Trump’s second impeachment, since it occurred after voters opted to remove the president from office themselves.
