The panel on "The Five" debated whether the political left has "a Louis Farrakhan problem," after the most recent story involving the controversial anti-Semitic preacher broke on Monday.

ABC host Meghan McCain pressed Women's March co-founder Tamika Mallory over her connection to Farrakhan, a former calypso singer from The Bronx, N.Y. who now leads the "Nation of Islam."

"I don't agree with many of Minister Farrakhan's statements," Mallory told McCain, who continuously asked whether she "condemned them."

The exchange lead several sponsors of the 2019 Women's March to pull their association with the group -- including the Democratic National Committee.

"The left has a Louis Farrakhan problem," Lisa Boothe said, pointing out that Farrakhan recently compared Jews to "termites" in a tweet that is still live.

Farrakhan has also made incendiary comments about white people.

Boothe said a photo was recently circulated showing House Financial Services Committee Chairwoman Maxine Waters of California hugging Farrakhan.

"It shouldn't be that hard to condemn [Farrakhan]," Boothe said.

Brian Kilmeade said that in Mallory's case, Farrakhan may be an advocate in the black community, but that associating with him is enough to "destroy a... career" due to his racial and anti-Semitic statements.

Juan Williams also condemned Farrakhan's remarks, but also asked whether the same stigma should be attached to Iowa Republican Congressman Steve King.

King was condemned by many, including his local newspaper, for asking why terms like "white nationalism" and "western civilization" became controversial.

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy of California stripped King of his committee assignments and House GOP Caucus Chairwoman Liz Cheney of Wyoming publicly questioned whether he should resign.
