Veteran Republican political operative and commentator Mary Matalin said the Democrats’ pillorying of Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh has gone beyond politics and illustrated a cultural divide in the country. She said that the American people have seen that an "idiocracy" is dominated the national culture across the board. "This huge record today where his friend [Facebook executive] Joel Kaplan, who is a friend of ours, is being attacked at Facebook. They're probably going to run him out of there because he is attended the hearings of Brett Kavanaugh whose wedding he was in and has been friends with for 20 years. People are really, they're just, this transcends politics, Laura, this is really, really about culture. And people are sick of everything," she said.

"From this idiocracy that's infusing and permeating every element of our culture from football to public restrooms. You cannot go anywhere," Matalin added. Matalin is married to James Carville -- a Democrat who has long been involved in national politics as a consultant and pundit.

According to Matalin, women who act like anarchists are not the definition of "successful feminism." She said that instead they should stand up for Kavanaugh's wife, Ashley if they want to stand up for women. Men are behaving like sissies, she said, will alter generations to come. Feminists, Matalin said, “want to castrate men, emasculate men." 

"This is not civil discourse. It's anarchy and it is the destruction of the culture," she said of Democrats. "We're sissifying men," she said. "In my day of feminism, there's always been like a virulent strain of 'a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bike.' So we've gone from not needing men, today's feminists want to castrate men, emasculate men."

Praising President Trump, she said that he worked "nothing short of a miracle” despite attacks by Democrats and the left. "Of the many incredible miraculous things that President Trump has done, and this is nothing short of a miracle what he has got done, but he has done it in the face of constant thwarting and lying and fallaciousness and these virulent attacks on him and his person and his people," she said.

Trump has trumpeted his economic policies and their effect on unemployment. While his predecessor Barack Obama once said that Americans needed to accommodate themselves to the “new normal” of low employment rates, the federal government announced on Friday that the seasonally-adjusted Latino unemployment rate fell to the lowest level ever last month. The Bureau of Labor Statistics released a report that showed that in September, the unemployment rate for Latinos (aged 16 and up) was 4.5 percent, thus equaling the rate registered in July of this year, which was the lowest level since the BLS began tracking Latino employment data in 1973. 

Here follows a partial transcript of Matalin’s appearance on Thursday's edition of FOX News' The Ingraham Angle:

LAURA INGRAHAM: Mary, you saw this play out today. There is a lot of enthusiasm, lot of anger and agitation on the left. They feel like they have momentum even if they lose the fight against him. How do you feel? 

MARY MATALIN, REPUBLICAN STRATEGIST: It's anarchy. This is not civil discourse. It's anarchy and it is the destruction of the culture. We're sissifying men.

In my day of feminism, there's always been like a virulent strain of 'a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bike.' So we've gone from not needing men, today's feminists want to castrate men, emasculate men. 

You know what it's going to affect generations of people to come when men are behaving like sissies and women are behaving like anarchists. And that's the definition of successful feminism. 

If you want to stand up for women, what about Ashley, sweet little Ashley Kavanaugh who sat outside of President Bush's office? The epitome of class and decorum. Brett, who had the hardest job by my estimation in the White House, a staff secretary, which requires absolute, unequivocal discretion and again decorum.

This huge record today where his friend [Facebook executive] Joel Kaplan, who is a friend of ours, is being attacked at Facebook. They're probably going to run him out of there because he is attended the hearings of Brett Kavanaugh whose wedding he was in and has been friends with for 20 years. People are really, they're just, this transcends politics, Laura, this is really, really about culture. And people are sick of everything. From this idiocracy that's infusing and permeating every element of our culture from football to public restrooms. You cannot go anywhere.

INGRAHAM: You can't get away from it. You can't do anything. Everybody has to be angry. 

MATALIN: Of the many incredible miraculous things that President Trump has done, and this is nothing short of a miracle what he has got done, but he has done it in the face of constant thwarting and lying and fallaciousness and these virulent attacks on him and his person and his people. They're chasing his cabinet members and his staff out of restaurants. They are sending private information of Senators. He has exposed the hypocrisy and the ineptitude of the loyal opposition. 

People are tuning in and they're saying who are these people? Who is this Blumenthal guy? Or [Keith] Ellison? What is the standard? We don't even have a standard anymore. You have a picture of your girlfriend being beat up and you have medical records and you have no corroboration on Brett Kavanaugh and you're just blowing up his life and his friend's lives. It transcends politics.
