Greg Gutfeld and the panel on "The Five" reacted to Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) announcing his run for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2020 on Tuesday, and his pointed criticism of potential independent candidate Howard Schultz.

"Why is he on so many television stations?... Because he is a billionaire," Sanders said of Schultz, the former longtime CEO of Starbucks Coffee.

Sanders said Sunday that he knows a "lot of people who work hard for a living" but get paid only $50,000 a year and still "know more about politics than Mr. Schultz."

He blasted the "corrupt political system" that allows Schultz to gain prominence.

Gutfeld said that it was "rich" to see a "socialist call a capitalist dangerous."

"[Sanders] fails to see that his platform only ends in misery," Gutfeld said. "Socialism is great at promising something but has no idea how to fulfill its promises."

He said socialism always ends up in "coercion, misery, and ultimately death," naming Venezuela, Cambodia, the former East Germany, and U.S.S.R. as examples.
