Greg Gutfeld on Comey Firing Fallout
In his monologue on "The Five" tonight, Greg Gutfeld reacted to the fallout after President Donald Trump fired FBI Director James Comey.
He said that Trump has again "flipped the script," pointing to Democrat lawmakers who have totally changed their tunes on Comey.
Instead of criticizing Comey for his handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation and calling for his resignation, Democrats like Sen. Elizabeth Warren, Sen. Patrick Leahy and Sen. Tim Kaine are now calling Trump un-American and authoritarian for firing the FBI director.
"So, Trump does what they asked for and now they hate it," Gutfeld said. "They damned Comey. And out of bipartisan benevolence, Trump grants them their wish, which is why their stuttering outrage over his firing makes them look two-faced."
As for the firing itself, Gutfeld said the act was defensible, but Trump's execution was flawed.
"He could have let him go in August, when half the media are drunk, picking sand from their navel. No one would have noticed. He could have done it professionally, instead of shooting him in the public square," Gutfeld said. "But expecting Donald Trump to stick to formalities is like expecting a dog to meow or a cat to bark or Chris Matthews to make sense."
He said the fact of the matter is that there's no downtime in the Trump administration.
"Imagine if the movie 'Jaws' only had shark attacks. No character development, just characters being eaten. That's this White House. There’s no off switch," Gutfeld said. "He's our 'Spinal Tap' president, where everything is always set to 11."
