Fox News contributor Dan Bongino spoke out on Monday to slam President Joe Biden and his administration for going into “incognito mode” on the border crisis. Bongino specifically called out DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas for trying to claim that the media is only not being allowed into border facilities because of COVID-19 restrictions.
“These people with the narrative spinning. So just to be clear, it was OK to stick the press in the middle of a Black Lives Matter rally in the summer with no vaccine in the middle of the worst part of the pandemic,” Bongino began while appearing on Fox News. “That was OK, but God forbid you put them in PPE and let them walk in and photograph in immigration, CBP. No no, we definitely can’t have that. What kind of an idiot falls for that stupidity? This guy should be embarrassed saying that on the air.”
Not stopping there, Bongino proceeded to continue calling out the Biden administration for their hypocrisy, exposing their “dirty little secret.”
“And what’s the dirty little secret here? Why are they really not allowing press photos?” he said. “I’m going to tell you why. Because you’d find out if you saw the press photos that the conditions in the Trump administration were far more humane than the conditions they have now and God forbid the media had to tell that story. That’s the dirty little secret of why the Biden administration has gone totally incognito mode now when it comes to this stuff. They don’t want anybody seeing anything.”
This comes days after Bongino described Biden as a “disaster for talk radio” because he is “just boring.”
“Biden, not only do I think is a terrible president in these last few months, it’s just terrible for talk radio,” Bongino told Insider. “I think Biden is a disaster for the country and his ideas are an atrocity. But he’s boring. He’s just boring.”
“It is been a real chore the last few months since we’ve lost a Donald Trump, who has a personality the size of Texas — to go from that, to this,” Bongino added.
While he has found covering Biden to be a “challenge,” Bongino has no intention of giving up trying to find unique ways to cover him.
“He’s boring and again I think he’s terrible, but you want to cover it in a way that people find interesting without just saying everyday ‘Biden’s terrible.’ That’s not a show,” he said.
“It’s going to be good. It’s going to sharpen, I think, us all up and separate the wheat from the chaff because candidly, I think even on the left and on our side, people who maybe were not so great at some of this stuff,” Bongino added. “In the Donald Trump era anyone could get a show or a book, he was just so full of material. Now we’re really going to see who can really hack it because this is tough.”
