Greg Gutfeld said left-wing activists would be clamoring for justice if a Trump "deplorable" attempted to assassinate a congressman, as James Hodgkinson did in Virginia last week.

"If it were a deplorable who had done this, the left would go nuts," he said of the shooting that critically wounded Rep. Steve Scalise (R-La.).

"They wish the shooter had been a guy in a red hat," he added, referring to President Trump's trucker hats.

He said that the left often calls out bigotry and intolerance, and has been involved in cases of violence against peaceful conservative activists.

He pointed out how one other left-wing protester calling for "tolerance" instead was arrested in Dauphin County, Pa. for stabbing a Harrisburg Police horse in the neck.

Gutfeld criticized several left-wing media personalities like Chris Matthews, who called the shooting a "tragic confluence" of "a lot of guns" and "people with strong passions politically."
