'The Five' rips Kamala Harris's Capitol riot-Pearl Harbor comparison: 'That was amateur hour'

During his sech Thursday, Biden called the infamous day a “dagger at the throat of democracy” and slammed former President Donald Trump, saying, “He’s not just a former president … He’s a defeated former president.”

Biden also accused Trump of inciting a mob to attack at the Capitol.

“For the first time in our history, a president had not just lost an election. He tried to prevent the peaceful transfer of power as a violent mob reached the Capitol … But they failed,” he said.

Co-host Greg Gutfeld said that Biden was talking down to Americans and suggested everyone at the Capitol on Jan. 6 was collectively guilty. 

“Well, this was a guy that was supposed to unite the country, and we’ve pretty much seen what he’s turned out to be,” he said. “He … scolded millions of Americans for what he believes, something very bad that they did. He’s presuming their guilt … That’s not what a president should do.”

TWO QUESTIONS FROM THE JAN. 6 CAPITOL RIOT

Gutfeld added that this wasn’t the first time Biden jumped to conclusions and said that the president would bash any American who disagrees with his agenda.

“This is exactly what [Biden] did with Kyle Rittenhouse. There isn’t a citizen on in America that he wouldn’t bash if it suited him politically without the actual facts, without the truth,” Gutfeld said.

In her speech, Vice President Harris also said America’s democracy was attacked Jan. 6, saying “We must unite in defense of our democracy.” However, she said it was comparable to Pearl Harbor and the 9/11 terrorist attacks.

“Certain dates echo throughout history … Including dates that instantly remind all who have lived them where they were and what they were doing when our democracy came under assault. Dates that occupy not only a place on our calendar but a place in our collective memory. Dec. 7, 1941, Sept. 11, 2001, and Jan. 6, 2021,” she said.
