Fox News' Harris Faulkner Fires Back At Guest Over Her 'Far Right' Claim

"I know that wasn’t meant for me," said Faulkner following a guest's remark about "you guys on the far right."

Fox NewsHarris Faulkner scoffed at a guest on Thursday who remarked that “you guys on the far right” hope for Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis to become the presidential nominee for the Republican Party in 2024.

The anchor discussed polling numbers for President Joe Biden and his 2024 Democratic challengers before she asked former Democratic congressional candidate Desiree Tims about the race.

Tims remarked on polling numbers for a potential face-off between Biden and DeSantis before proclaiming that the 2024 contest would be a rematch between Biden and former President Donald Trump.

“I know you want it to be [Trump], and I believe you believe that it will be,” Faulkner interrupted Tims.

“I know you guys on the far right really want Ron DeSantis to be the nominee, but I don’t think he has the charisma or personality to beat out the entertainer in chief,” Tims replied.

“I don’t know who you are talking to in terms of ‘you guys,’ I know that that wasn’t meant for me,” Faulkner chimed in. “I’m a journalist.”

Tims continued to speak without acknowledging her earlier remark before Faulkner hinted at her frustration again.

“So, and hopefully, yeah, OK, I’m sure you heard what I said,” said Faulkner.
