On "The Five" today, Greg Gutfeld pointed out that even The New York Times has joined the chorus of critics speaking out against President Obama's decision to continue his vacation and golf outing mere moments after delivering a statement on the murder of James Foley and the threat of ISIS.

The paper wrote yesterday that Obama "long ago stopped worrying about what critics say .. and after the outcry over Wednesday's game, he defied the critics by golfing again."

Gutfeld asserted Obama is driven more by his critics than his common sense. He said Obama continued his golf outing to spite those who said he shouldn't in an act of defiance.

"How do you get the president to do the right thing instead of the defiant thing?" he asked.

Gutfeld's solution is to pull a page out of Tom Sawyer's playbook and preach the opposite to the president.

Helpful pointers such as "open the borders," "let's hear more from Al Sharpton" and "the IRS are heroes" could work well, according to Gutfeld.

"[Obama] cannot keep his head in the sand trap forever ... then again, maybe he could."
