Fox’s Juan Williams to Co-Hosts: You’re ‘Trying to Distract People from the News of the Day’

On today’s The Five, Fox’s Juan Williams clashed with some of his co-hosts, telling them that they’re trying to “distract” from the big news out of the James Comey hearing with digressions. Eric Bolling asked him about the unresolved question of investigations into the other 2016 campaigns, but Williams said in response, “Are you kidding me?” He said “what’s happening at this table” is them basically “trying to distract people from the news of the day”––namely that Comey “came out today and said the president’s a liar.” Greg Gutfeld asked, “Do you honestly think that that’s a revelation––that there’s no evidence behind one of Trump’s tweets?” Bolling and Williams got into it over the president’s claim and the latter said again, “You’re just looking for an excuse.” Bolling responded, “I’m really not.” He again pressed the point of potential from the other campaigns––like Hillary Clinton‘s––with the Russians and asked, “Where’s the investigation of the Clinton campaign?” Williams reiterated, “Maybe it’s off in the weeds with you, because you are lost on this story. You are trying to divert America’s attention from the news of the day and the reality of what’s going on.” Gutfeld, who said there are serious issues here that need looking into, also observed during the segment that “finally the left cares about the Russians” after the Cold War and, well, this.
