File this one under “Wishful Thinking” - along with Geraldo Rivera’s claim that Jon Stewart has turned on Democrats and Sean Hannity’s pretense that The Daily Show was actually begging him not to leave New York, instead of mocking him.
On The Five yesterday, co-host Eric Bolling played a clip of Stephen Colbert kidding around with Fox’s Jesse Watters at a Super Bowl party. Kimberly Guilfoyle responded:
He doesn’t offend me at all… I like Colbert because he’s funny and he’s cool. …He knows how to have fun and he doesn’t stick his nose up to Fox.
Which is pretty hilarious considering that Colbert’s whole show is a satiric mockery of Fox.
Bolling pointed out, “He trashes us quite a bit, though.”
Guilfoyle stuck to her guns. “You know what, though? But I think in a loving way. I think he admires Fox. He knows we’re the winners.”
Her cohosts laughed loudly.
Guilfoyle added, “He’s funny. I don’t mind him.”
Considering Guilfoyle never seems to utter a word without calculating how to make herself look good to Fox News suits, I can only conclude she was more interested in sucking up to Colbert at that particular moment.
Here are a few examples of Colbert’s “loving” “admiration”:
Colbert on Megyn Kelly’s “white Santa” remarks:
You know, there’s just no other way to say it, I have had it with black people.
…Fortunately, Fox News’ Megyn Kelly was there to put things in black and white but mostly white.
…A black Santa is a terrible idea. If a homeowner in Florida sees a black man coming down their chimney, he is going to get shot. ‘Officer, I was just defending my milk and cookies!’
Colbert on Greg Gutfeld calling the mainstream media “Obama’s condom:
No matter how rough Fox News slams this story to the hilt, they still have real trouble infecting America with their news herpies.
Mediaite has a few more, including:
On Bolling’s reaction to Ariel Castro’s prison suicide:
If any of you freeloaders out there need some inspiration, just turn on The Five. Because every time I watch Eric Bolling, I want to kill myself.
On Bob Beckel’s reaction to the idea that football is dangerous:
I’ve got nothing against brains, some of my best friends have them. But you cannot scrap football over brain damage. Just ask the brain-damaged… Some people’s lives are so bleak, stuck in a soul-crushing and pointless job, surrounded by coworkers who don’t respect them, that the only bright spot in this tundra of futility is laying on the couch in a nacho-induced coma, just praying by the grace of God they’ll choke on a chicken wing and end it all. You can’t take that away from Bob Beckel, it’s his only hope!
The Underwear Model is a dimwit. We can see why the suits hired this broad.
