Sometimes, there’s very little daylight between Donald Trump and Fox News.
On The Five yesterday, the cohosts discussed the re-capture of Mexican drugpin “El Chapo” by taking political swipes at some of their favorite targets: President Obama and San Francisco. But cohost Eric Bolling took it a step further by swiping at Mexican immigrants.
Before Bolling spoke on the subject, cohost Greg Gutfeld “quipped” about El Chapo, “Why didn’t he go to San Francisco? It’s a sanctuary city!”
“How about taking him to Gitmo?” cohost Dana Perino “asked.”
“Oh, sorry, all closed up,” cohost Kimberly Guilfoyle snarked.
Then it was Bolling’s turn.
BOLLING: The one Mexican we want, we can’t get over here and put him in jail. Instead…
Later, after realizing the import of what he had just said, Bolling asked, “Can I just clarify my comment? The one “illegal” Mexican.”
“This is why the Republicans will lose the election,” cohost Geraldo Rivera added.
Guilfoyle, a Trump- lover, did her best to rescue her cohost. “Bolling loves Mexico. He vacations there often and he loves Mexican Americans,” she said.
“And he goes to Chipotle,” Rivera chimed in, laughing.
But Bolling once again let his true animosity come out as he said, almost certainly sarcastically, “I identify as Latino.”
I’m surprised nobody said that some of Bolling’s best friends are Mexicans.
