Greg Gutfeld honored the late President George Herbert Walker Bush in his monologue on "The Five" Tuesday.

"It's what we call a hero," he said of Bush's life, from enlisting in the service at 18 to serving as president from 1989-1993.

Gutfeld said that Bush and the recently belated Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) were examples of "the greatest generation," adding that "only losing great men and women unify people" today.

"It helps us remember that all of us have something in common with the great ones," he said of Bush's down-to-earth demeanor despite being a man of great accomplishment.

"The shared loss reveals who we really are," he said, adding that a minority of people are still using Bush's death to divide others: "God help those [people]."

Gutfeld said that America should "do the guy a favor and be more kind and gentle in case he's watching."
