Gutfeld on Bernie’s comments about China

In an interview with The Hill, Democratic presidential candidate and avowed socialist Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., said China had done more to address extreme poverty than any country in history. “What we have to say about China, in fairness to China and its leadership is, if I’m not mistaken, they have made more progress in addressing extreme poverty than any country in the history of civilization, OK. So they’ve done a lot of things for their people,” Sanders said. He’s right. According to the World Bank, the number of poor in China went from 880 million in 1981, to less than 10 million. But I wonder how they did that? Well, the Chinese “socialists” killed millions of poor people, so there’s that. Dead people aren’t poor. Just dead. They called that the “Great Leap Forward.” After that, they used a tool Bernie despises: capitalism. It was only the Chinese rigorously adopted free-market principles, private ownership and decentralization, that they transformed their economy from a house of horrors to something much more humane. The things that saved a billion lives in China are the things Bernie thinks harmed our country. The lesson is that those who scream about inequality embrace ideas that create more inequality. By replacing equal opportunity with equal outcomes, you end up with two classes: the poor and the powerful. Which happened in China. And it seems to be happening in San Francisco, Los Angeles and Baltimore, too. Of course, China went “whole Communist,” resulting in mass murder, religious persecution, forced abortion and famine. The number of dead in China under Mao has to be counted in the tens of millions. So yeah, praise is in order for China finally coming around to abandoning bad ideas. Maybe Bernie should do the same.

Yeah…  I wouldn’t hold my breath on that, Greg.  As usual, Greg Gutfeld nails it with his pithy wit.  Bernie is an unbelievable hypocrite.  He’s a millionaire with three mansions, who underpays his own staff…and that’s just for starters..  And, this all the while he’s preaching his socialist nonsense; how the rich need to pay their “fair share.”  Hey Bernie!  How about you sell one of your three mansions.  After all, you don’t “need” all three.  And, why don’t you donate the proceeds to the poor.  Lead by example!  Unreal…  And, let’s not forget that Bernie and his then fiancé had their honeymoon in Moscow…back when it was the Soviet Union.  Think about that…especially those of us who remember those days..  An American couple having their honeymoon in the Soviet Union.  Wow..  Bernie is someone who hates America, and how it was founded.   He hates capitalism, and yet has greatly benefited from it with his book deals and so on.  Remember that the next time you see angry, crazy Bernie talking about a “living wage” or some other similar socialist bs.

Gutfeld on tweeting while wasted

A new study by New York University finds that a third of the people who get high post on social media while under the influence. And a large portion said they regretted their intoxicated actions. I like this study because I am this study. Many times I would tweet something rude after that third glass of wine. And the next day, regret the tweet, not the wine. I learned over time that I had to cut back on one or the other. So out went the wine, in came the vodka. But we’re missing the good news. The study isn’t about the destruction caused behind the wheel of a car — it’s now about the embarrassment caused in front of your smartphone screen. Wikipedia told me that between 1991 and 2017, the rate of drunk driving fatalities has decreased 46 percent nationally, and 68 percent among those under age 21. So we find ourselves no longer steering into lamp posts; instead we steer humiliating posts about our stupid thoughts, activities and selves into a ravenous public, who happily seek another opportunity to dance on our shame. Writer P.J. O’Rourke once called booze “liquid idiot,” but our tweets are “digital dumb.” Which is better? Nobody ever drove a tweet into oncoming traffic and wiped out a family of five. So consider it progress that more people are dying from embarrassment than internal injuries. If more high people are wrecking themselves online than on the road, that’s a win for all of us. We should all drink to that. In moderation, of course! And certainly not near Twitter.

Well said, Greg!  That was adapted from Greg Gutfeld’s monologue on “The Five” on Aug. 19, 2019. Greg Gutfeld currently serves as host of FOX News Channel’s (FNC) The Greg Gutfeld Show (Saturdays 10-11PM/ET) and co-host of The Five (weekdays 5-6PM/ET).  Excellent!!    🙂

Greg Gutfeld: Sanders campaign staff wage complaints expose ‘socialist millionaire’ as ‘hypocrite’

Democratic presidential candidate Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., routinely slams corporate executives and makes calls for wage hikes, a stance that comes across as hypocritical thanks to a new report, according to Greg Gutfeld. The self-described democratic socialist is reportedly taking heat from campaign staffers upset they are being paid “poverty wages” and not the $15 per hour that is a hallmark of the Sanders campaign, Gutfeld claimed Friday on “The Five.” “He is, just by existing, a hypocrite,” he said. “He’s a socialist millionaire with three homes. Wealth is good for him but not for others.” Sanders reportedly has a net worth of about $700,000, but has made more than $1 million annually in recent years. He and his wife Jane own a house in Burlington, Vt., he purchased a $575,000 lakefront property in the Green Mountain State in 2016, and the couple owns a 19th-century townhouse in the District of Columbia. On “The Five,” Gutfeld said it is important that Sanders, “appl[y] the damaging policies that he wants to do to Americans onto his staff.” “But why won’t he?” he asked. “Because he knows when you raise wages… you have to reduce the number of jobs because ‘the pie’ doesn’t grow. “The purpose of the minimum wage is it’s the first rung on the employment ladder. The problem with the left is… they see the first rung as the last rung because they’re not economically competent.” In recent weeks, Sanders has called for a $15 per hour minimum wage on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” and at campaign rallies in Rock Hill, S.C. and in Augusta, Ga. Adding to Gutfeld’s remarks, host Juan Williams claimed the wages Sanders staffers are making average out to $13 per hour. The staff is also unionized, Williams said.

Greg is definitely right..  Regardless of your personal politics, or party affiliation, Bernie is clearly a spectacular hypocrite.  But, then again, so are most socialist leaders.  They’ll want to impose their failed economic/political system on everyone, but themselves.  Socialism keeps people in mediocrity, except those at the very top who are millionaires (some even billionaires) with multiple mansions and so on.  And, that’s been true throughout history.  Bernie is just the most glaring, brazen example in American politics.  Kudos to Greg for calling out that self-righteous hypocrite on his bs.  For more, click on the text above.

Gutfeld on Trump’s tweets

Did you hear? President Trump tweeted. The tweets are being called racist because Trump told critics of the United States to go back to their country. Now those critics are holding a press conference to respond. Trump’s comment sounds bad, if you leave the rest of it out. He actually said, “Go back to your countries, fix the problems there — and then come back, and show us how you did it!” How many racists say “leave,” and then say, “please come back and help us?” Probably zero. But Trump messes with the media’s reading comprehension, so they only digest half. See, Trump’s mistake is to assume everyone sees the whole picture. Fact is, the media and Democrats wish him ill and read his tweets with ill-intent. The rest of us are left to explain it all. It’s like doing stand-up while your friends are sitting at the tables explaining your jokes. That’s where I step in — I read the whole thing. My summary? After he said “leave,” he said, “please come back!” If anything, it’s a challenge. But why quibble with context? Still, the president could work harder on the details. Like the fact that only one of the Squad is from somewhere else. Also, maybe don’t tweet about the Democrats while they’re eating each other alive? So, yeah, I could’ve worded the tweets better than Trump. But, unlike his critics, at least I could read them.

Hahaha!!  Greg, as usual, absolutely nails it here! The liberal media is SO gullible.  I agree with Greg that Trump’s timing probably wasn’t that good.  He should have waited til AFTER the 2020 election, and then if he wins re-election, THEN go after these idiots and say this sorta thing, and watch their heads explode.  As it is, the Dems are in a circular firing squad eating each other for lunch, and by Trump doing this, he gave them something to unit against.  But, nothing racist here, as Greg clearly shows.  More fake news from the dominantly liberal mainstream media.  Typical…  Greg Gutfeld currently serves as host of FOX News Channel’s (FNC) The Greg Gutfeld Show (Saturdays 10-11PM/ET) and co-host of The Five (weekdays 5-6PM/ET).   🙂

Opinion/Analysis: Gutfeld on CNN’s Hitler analogy

Another day on CNN, another comparison to Adolf Hitler. “I’m going to use an extreme example. Think about Hitler,” host Don Lemon said. “If you could look back on history, would you say: ‘Well, I’m so glad that person was allowed a platform so that they could spread their hate and propaganda and lies? Or would you say it probably wasn’t the right thing to do to spread that?” Here’s a tip, CNN. When an anchor says, “I’m about to use an extreme example,” cut to a commercial, because something idiotic is about to be said. And a warning doesn’t excuse the idiot. But if CNN cut to commercial before every stupid thing, all they’d have is commercials. Picture it: all commercials, no news. Is this “crap news” or is commentary? Even they don’t know. I do. It’s emotion masked as thoughtfulness. Hyperbole pretending to be thought. This after Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., called holding centers at the U.S.-Mexico border “concentration camps.” Hitler or Holocaust comparisons are a patch of quicksand in an argument that every sensible person avoids. Unless they’re blinded by obsessional fury, and work at CNN or Congress. What’s worse? The media frantically protecting their far-left idols, or lecturing the world on the finer distinctions between concentration camps and death camps? Because, you know, at concentration camps, you didn’t just die. You did other stuff too. You know, before you died. Right, Chris Cuomo? No, it’s not. We all know what concentration camps mean. Many know it too well. They’ve lost family to them. We don’t need coffee shop socialists or CNN lecturing us on semantics. It mocks the magnitude of the Holocaust. But this is all just a dog whistle — linking Hitler to Trump. Which is, as CNN says, “an extreme example.” Which leads to a question: Who knows more about anti-Semitism — CNN, or Israel? Safe bet: Israel. They just named a new town “Trump Heights.” Not “Stupid Heights.” That would’ve been a great name — if CNN lived there.

That was adapted from Greg Gutfeld’s monologue on “The Five” on June 19, 2019.  To see the video of it, click on the text above.  Greg absolutely nails it here with his dry wit.  Don Lemon and his ilk at CNN are complete morons.  And, don’t get me started about that brain-trust, AOC.  The thing is, they have no idea just how offensive what they say really is…especially to survivors, or the families of loved ones who died at concentration camps in WWII, etc.  But, let them go ahead and continue to use such “extreme examples,” I say…as CNN’s ratings continue to tank.  People are getting sick and tired of Don Lemon, and Chris Cuomo’s crap…and changing the channel.

Opinion: Gutfeld on MSNBC saying Trump is guilty of workplace violence

According to the hair-on-fire media out there chasing ambulances down Pennsylvania Avenue, there’s been a report of workplace violence in a large white residence. Commenting on President Trump firing officials at the Homeland Security Department, a guest on MSNBC said: “What we talked about was a possible analogy between what we’re seeing in the president and studies of violence and acting out, particularly workplace violence…. The question we have to ask ourselves, from a behavioral sense, is are we watching a president essentially on his way to what we call a flash point, and are we beginning to see him act out in the form of purging and mass firing and completely not listening to any logic? “Are we essentially watching a workplace violence incident play out at the highest level of our government, and is he acting out now, and where does this go if I’m right about that?” That might be the most insane thing ever said on MSNBC – and they employ Chris Matthews. You wonder why America thinks the media is less trustworthy than lawn darts? It’s because the media seriously entertain ideas like that. Firing someone is now workplace violence. Maybe it feels like that for nonskilled people in the media, who know they can’t be employed anywhere else, except maybe a carnival dunk tank. They never get fired, they only fail up the primetime lineup. Until they get jobs running CNN. Yet these are the same clowns who lied that President Trump called immigrants “animals,” when he was talking about the MS-13 criminal gang. How predictable: these goofs were more offended over calling killer thugs “animals” than by the acts by the gangs themselves. But that’s the media’s way of operating. Everything is a crisis, except the actual crisis. We’ve all had a friend who – when the booze ran out at a party – would drink from abandoned cups and polish off the Listerine. That’s the media. With the collusion keg empty, they’re now desperately looking for anything to numb the pain. So we’re back to President Trump’s personality. He’s mean! Unstable! When he doesn’t like a situation, he changes it! Did you hear? He fires people! I once worked for somebody like that. In fact, she fired me. But that’s what bosses do in the real world. The real world. The media should check it out sometime. It’s really the only show in town and they can’t stand it, because they wouldn’t last a minute.

Agreed..  You really can’t make this stuff up, folks.  I saw the video clips of these morons on MSNBC actually saying this.  Unreal..  The above was adapted from Greg Gutfeld’s monologue on “The Five” on April 9, 2019.

Gutfeld on Trump’s letter to Pelosi

Citing security concerns during the shutdown, Nancy Pelosi has asked Donald Trump to give his State of the Union address in writing. Trump’s response? Canceling her trip to Brussels Thursday night right before takeoff. In the letter he said, he was “sorry to inform her,” that he’s canceling the trip. No, he wasn’t sorry. Not at all! He basically stole her lunch money. And then he ate her lunch. Still, Trump should accept her offer. And send the State of the Union address in writing: a sheet with just two words: Bye bye. Then he should hold a giant event in the middle of America. After all, the people elected Trump, not Washington, D.C. Nancy and the Dems can take shelter under their desks and watch it all on iPads. And Trump can cite his accomplishments, tell some jokes — just so the press has a reason to burn their hair. He can broadcast it on YouTube. The media will cover it in highly flammable fact-checks. It’ll be the first People’s State of the Union! If the media doesn’t show it — then we know it’s personal and political — for this is historical. And hysterical! Cuz what do the Dems do then? Do they not respond when he does it anyway — at a better place, with better-looking people? With music, prizes, farm animals and face painting? And almost no carbon footprint! Think about that! Do they hold a response? With the same cardboard cutouts from before? Nancy just offered Trump an amazing chance. It gets him out of a dull speech — and it gets “The Five” out of going to D.C. – a place with overpriced booze, incompetent politicians and substandard food. Which really, is the whole point of this monologue.
