A debate about Trump’s handling of immigration on Fox News’ The Five went off the rails on Thursday night as Juan Williams, Greg Gutfeld and Jesse Watters engaged in a screaming match.
“Contrary to what I’m hearing here, the president likes the idea of saying ‘This is the Democrats fault.’ Remember the president said ‘This is the law, I can’t do anything about it, it’s up to the Congress.’ Then he turns tail and signs an executive order and, guess what, undoes it,” Williams said.
Williams was interrupted by Watters, who talked over him and excused Trump’s lies.
“You know how soft executive orders are,” Watters said. “Everything Obama did was an executive order and then Trump just got rid of them, that’s why you have Congress take care of immigration.”
“OK, here we go. If you don’t let me talk then I guess you won’t have a show,” Williams said. “You have the president who said ‘Oh I can’t do anything about it’ and then he’s the one who literally changes course and has to do it. He’s back to trying to demonize not only Democrats but the immigrants again…Does anyone ever say, ‘Hey, Mr. President, stop lying?'”
Co-host Greg Gutfeld then brought up Peter Fonda.
“Ohhhh gawd,” Williams groaned. “You’re the one who likes to say, ‘Don’t take Trump’s words so seriously!'”
“He just fixed the issue!” added co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle.
“Now they care? Why? Because there’s a Republican,” said Gutfeld. “Both sides are not politicizing it on the same level. It is so out of proportion on the left’s side because they have ignored the suffering of children for so long, until now. They don’t care about Chicago, they care about 2,000 kids! We don’t care about 2,000 kids, we care about all the kids. Pro-lifers care about all the kids, Juan. You can shake your head.”
“It’s so absurd!” said Williams.
“Yeah, donate to Planned Parenthood!” screamed Gutfeld.
