Things got heated between Fox News’ “The Five” co-hosts, Greg Gutfeld and Juan Williams. Immediately following the House Oversight Committee’s hearing with Donald Trump’s former lawyer, convicted liar, and fraud, Michael Cohen, the hosts attempted to discuss the payment of “hush money” to Stormy Daniels lawyer. When co-host Dana Perino began to argue that the checks were not a violation of campaign finance laws, liberal co-host Juan Williams interrupted her, questioning her reasoning. Williams interrupted, saying, “Here’s the thing…” Greg Gutfeld then reminded Williams that there were other people on the panel who had not yet had a chance to share their thoughts on the subject.
Williams asked, “Gosh, are you guys ever gonna let me finish?”
Gutfeld responded, “No, because you’re always finishing. There’s somebody sitting here who hasn’t said a damn word!”
Juan Williams snarkily told Gutfeld, “You are so deep in the bunker!”
Gutfeld exploded on Williams, “Oh, shut up, Juan! I’m in nobody’s bunker! Enough with your bunker…” Gutfeld continued, “I’m trying to be polite to someone on the panel here, which you won’t do—which you won’t do!”
In the next segment, The Five co-host Jesse Watters reminded Juan Williams that Michael Cohen didn’t have any documentation, corroboration or witnesses to prove Russian collusion with the Trump campaign. Juan Williams attempted to use Roger Stone telling President Trump that Wikileaks was going to drop Hillary’s emails, as an example of Trump’s guilt. A frustrated Williams accused Watters of “being blind,” saying, “You, like Greg, are deep in the bunker.”
Gutfeld blasted the liberal host, “You know, if you say that again, I’m gonna throw you off the set!”
Williams laid back in his chair and pretended to be offended.
Gutfeld explained to Williams, “Because you know what ‘the bunker’ means? What you’re intimating, is that who’s in the bunker? Adolph Hitler. Correct?”
Williams denied that he intended to tie Gutfeld to Hitler, saying, “No I wasn’t. You’re so far off!”
Gutfeld continued with his rant, “What you’re saying is that you choose the worst intent of people’s words. Like when I say that I believe something, that ‘I’m in the bunker.'”
“What if I said that about you?” Gutfeld asked Williams.
Is anyone else sick of listening to Juan Williams generalizations about President Trump and his supporters? Was Gutfeld wrong to lay into him, or did he deserve it? We’d love to hear what you think about their heated exchange in the comment section below.
