Gutfeld: 'Shallow' Pro-Bernie Protesters Give Apple a Pass on Outsourcing
In tonight's monologue on "The Five," Greg Gutfeld criticized the "hypocrisy" of pro-Sanders activists for rallying against outsourcing, but looking the other way when it comes to the company that makes their favorite gadget -- Apple.
Bernie Sanders was asked a couple weeks ago by the Daily News whether Apple is among companies whose business practices are wrecking the United States.
The Vermont senator said that no, "Apple is not destroying the fabric of America."
"See, he knows how shallow his fans are," Gutfeld said.
He said that unlike the "abstact" Verizon, Apple products -- namely, the iPhone -- fits into people's pockets "like a friendly little robot baby."
"And there's the hypocrisy: Activists only protest stuff that doesn't enhance their identity."
He said that Apple "outsources like crazy -- but who cares when you're tweeting pictures of your gluten-free socks?"
Gutfeld imagined a scenario wherein protesters actually did demand that Apple stop manufacturing phones in China.
"In a year, the iPhone would cost more than a pre-owned Prius.
"There goes that trip to Burning Man. And you were gonna Instagram the whole thing."
