Greg Gutfeld came up with a novel explanation for the “left-wing” New York Times having broken the Hillary Clinton email story. Proof? That’s for Harry Reid, only.
In a discussion in which cohost Eric Bolling “just asked” if Democrats have “a major corruption problem," much of the discussion was yet another round of Harry Reid bashing over his supposedly baseless 2012 accusation that Mitt Romney had not paid income taxes.
Gutfeld, ever the class act, called Reid “such a creep” and said he has “the character of cat dander.”
There was some great pushback from Juan Williams: “This goes on all the time in Washington,” he said about Reid's accusation. Williams later added, “This is a one-sided conversation. You guys don’t talk about oh, Republican malfeasance and corruption. How about that? … We could talk about Bob McDonald going to jail for gifts, we could talk about Aaron Schock, we could talk about Mike Grimm – all good Republicans.”
Williams also pointed out that it was the “left-wing” New York Times that broke the Hillary Clinton email story. “The left-wing media has been all over Hillary Clinton on this,” Williams noted.
So Gutfeld came up with this, uh, interesting explanation:
GUTFELD: The New York Times went after Hillary because they’re doing it now to get it over with so they appear to be objective when they get into whoever’s camp, which will be the left camp in what? Eight months, 12 months, 14 months. So, they’re going after Hillary now, they’re vetting her now… they’re checking the box. And who knows? Maybe it’s because they do want a left candidate than her.
It was bad enough that a supposed news host would make such an allegation without offering any evidence to back it up. But it was even worse given that this was during the same segment in which Gutfeld attacked Harry Reid as having “the character of cat dander” for doing the same thing.
Watch it below, from today's The Five.
This segment about tapped me out, though- It’s one of the few times I’m not kidding about getting a headache from watching it. I actually checked for if my nose was bleeding.
Or, to put it another way, it was on in the living room when I was doing something there and it caught my attention. However, I did watch it all the way through on video later.
Even I have trouble stomaching this show, though.
