The Five‘s Jesse Watters: Criticizing Caravan Isn’t Racist, Mexicans Are Doing It Too

The Five held a conversation on Monday about the Central American migrant caravan heading towards the U.S. southern border, during which co-host Greg Gutfeld celebrated what he deemed to be a neglected “upside” — that the U.S. and Mexico agree on this issue. The two nations’ opposition to the caravan has nothing to do with racism, according to Gutfeld. The opposition, rather, can be chalked up a natural desire for people to want their nation’s borders protected. “It is human nature to desire a process, and order, and a border,” Gutfeld said. “And also, you do feel a sense of line cutting. Especially with something that is politically manufactured, like this caravan, for lack of another phrase. That’s why they call it an invasion because there isn’t really [another] name for it. The fact is it os human nature to be upset about this, and it’s not racist. Continue reading "The Five‘s Jesse Watters: Criticizing Caravan Isn’t Racist, Mexicans Are Doing It Too"

Fox News’ The Five Knocks Acosta in Segment on CNN Lawsuit: They May Have a Point, But Hard to Sympathize With Him

Fox News’ The Five tackled the CNN lawsuit against the White House this afternoon, and while some of the hosts said the network may have a point, the co-hosts were largely critical of Jim Acosta and his conduct. Greg Gutfeld in particular said, “They might have a point, even though he still has a daily pass he can apply for every day… The problem is you don’t care if they have a point because he’s so unlikable.” He likened Acosta to “the student in class that disrupts the class so nobody else can learn,” while Trump is “the teacher that just grounded him.” “You want to be sympathetic to Acosta but you can’t,” Gutfeld said, “because all he does it make it about himself.” Kennedy said other journalists in the room get annoyed when Acosta “sucks all of the oxygen out of the room,” while Jesse Watters Continue reading "Fox News’ The Five Knocks Acosta in Segment on CNN Lawsuit: They May Have a Point, But Hard to Sympathize With Him"

John Kerry Wishes ‘Complete Fool’ Greg Gutfeld a Happy Veterans Day

John Kerry may have once been the country’s top diplomat, but the gloves are off on Twitter. The former secretary of state delivered a sharp rebuke of Fox Newser Greg Gutfeld Sunday, calling him a “complete fool” after Gutfeld lashed out at him with a personal insult. It all started when Kerry commented on President Donald Trump‘s decision to skip a visit to a World War I cemetery near Paris on Saturday because of rainy weather. “President @realDonaldTrump a no-show because of raindrops?” Kerry tweeted. “Those veterans the president didn’t bother to honor fought in the rain, in the mud, in the snow – & many died in trenches for the cause of freedom. Rain didn’t stop them & it shouldn’t have stopped an American president.”

Fox News’ The Five Criticizes Jim Acosta Over Trump Presser: ‘Hostile to the President’

Fox News’ The Five criticized CNN’s Jim Acosta for his confrontation with President Donald Trump at today’s fiery press conference. Dana Perino, who faced off with reporters as Bush White House press secretary, said she felt bad for the young woman who tried to take the microphone from Acosta. Jesse Watters said it’s different from normal reporter confrontations because Acosta was “refusing to let the president move on, refusing to hand over the microphone.” “He’s arguing with the president. He’s hostile to the president,” he continued. “This is not a question about a Watergate-era scandal, the future of the republic, war and peace. This is about how he’s characterizing the caravan. It’s a difference of opinion.” Martha MacCallum, meanwhile, remarked that it seemed like some members of the the press felt “emboldened in their rudeness,” even adding, “There were moments in there today that I actually Continue reading "Fox News’ The Five Criticizes Jim Acosta Over Trump Presser: ‘Hostile to the President’"

Fox’s Greg Gutfeld Insists Willie Horton Ad Wasn’t Racist: It Was ‘About Crime and Safety, Not Race’

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld insisted the infamous Willie Horton ads, created to support George H.W. Bush‘s 1988 presidential campaign, were not racist on The Five Thursday. Gutfeld made the claim in a spat with co-host Juan Williams, who decried President Donald Trump‘s attempt to match the 1988 campaign ad’s ugliness with his own version — warning of a violent Central American invasion — tweeted out on Wednesday night. Willie Horton was a convicted murderer who, while allowed out of prison temporarily as part of Massachusetts’s weekend furlough program, raped a white woman. The Willie Horton ads were used to criticize Bush’s opponent Michael Dukakis for supporting the furlough program. The ad, while devastating for Dukakis’s campaign, has always been decried for its racist dog-whistles. Lee Atwater, Bush’s cutthroat campaign manager, eventually apologized for the ad before his death. Hell, even Roger Stone, who Continue reading "Fox’s Greg Gutfeld Insists Willie Horton Ad Wasn’t Racist: It Was ‘About Crime and Safety, Not Race’"

Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld Defends Eric Holder: ‘I Don’t Believe He Was Inciting Violence’

Following his comments that Democrats need to “kick” when their opponents “go low,” former Attorney General Eric Holder received some perhaps unexpected support from the other side of the aisle on Fox News. During Thursday night’s broadcast of The Five, host Greg Gutfeld pushed back on the idea that Holder was instructing his fellow party members to get physical. That was just after President Donald Trump told the network the remarks were “disgusting” and “dangerous” earlier in the day. “I don’t believe he was inciting violence,” Gutfeld said. “He was basically saying you have to fight harder. Having said that, accusations of incivility don’t bug me at all. I think incivility is actually pretty good because it reduces the chance for violence. If you’re uncivil with each other, it might mean you might not punch.” On Wednesday, footage began circulating online of Holder at a Georgia Democratic campaign Continue reading "Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld Defends Eric Holder: ‘I Don’t Believe He Was Inciting Violence’"

Greg Gutfeld: Dem Rhetoric is Leading Supporters to a Waterloo, ‘The Side That Can Defend Itself Always Wins’

On Monday, Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld went on a puzzling tangent while suggesting that Democrats are taking their supporters towards a “Waterloo” moment. The remarks were made during a portion of The Five in which the panel talked about last week’s incident on the New York City Subway where Fox & Friends host Brian Kilmeade was hounded and accosted by two political comedians. Gutfeld condemned what he deems to be the escalating political antics from the left, saying their tactics will eventually lead to a bloodbath.
“They encouraged subway riders to harass Kilmeade. It got almost to an unsettling violent point where they were instilling a mob to crucify him. That’s what they were yelling. I guess Netflix is the role of Pontius Pilate because they enable this sort of thing. Democrats need to take the leadership role and tamp down the rhetoric. The Dems are going to lead their Continue reading "Greg Gutfeld: Dem Rhetoric is Leading Supporters to a Waterloo, ‘The Side That Can Defend Itself Always Wins’"
