Gutfeld Rips 'Emotional Arsonists' for Post-Election Fear Mongering
The American Academy of Pediatrics, which represents more than 60,000 doctors, recently released an email to members encouraging them to tell parents to talk to their children about Donald Trump's election victory.
The email said this can help children process the "disturbing rhetoric" they might have heard from the president-elect.
In his monologue on "The Five" today, Greg Gutfeld said this is just another example of the media, celebrities or organizations saying Americans need to deal with post-election fear and anxieties.
Gutfeld argued, however, that the media, celebrities and organizations are actually the ones stoking some Americans' fear and anxieties.
"[They] gin up the fear, then pretend to soothe it," Gutfeld said. "They are emotional arsonists, setting fires so they themselves can put them out."
He said the actual post-election problems - such as violent protests - are coming from anti-Trump activists, students and agitators.
"If these doctors really cared about kids, they'd stop generating dopey emails that treat an election like an act of terror."
