Greg Gutfeld seemed obviously angry during a discussion on the school shooting at Covenant on the Monday edition of “The Five” on Fox News.
According to Mediaite, he even rolled his eyes at co-host Jeanine Pirro.
Gutfeld opposed to Jessica Tarlov’s proposal for additional gun control measures, interrupting Pirro to argue against Tarlov’s position.
Yesterday, six people were killed in Nashville by a lone school shooter, including three children.

According to Pirro, it is unknown how the gunman obtained the firearms used in the incident.
“This is why we shouldn’t be talking about this,” Gutfeld interjected. “Such a joke. All we do is speculate about this stuff. We don’t know anything about how she got the guns.”
Pirro believed that Gutfeld was talking to her. “I just said that. I just said we don’t know,” she said.
An irritated Gutfeld sniped back at her in response. “I know. I’m talking to [Tarlov]. Control yourself.”
Gutfeld shook his head and rolled his eyes after dismissing his co-host, the typically light-hearted environment on “The Five” possibly altered by a tragedy that cannot be treated casually.
After Gutfeld’s statement, Pirro vehemently defended her own position. She stated, “The bottom line is you need to protect them.” “Lock the d*** door! Period!”
Then, co-host Jesse Watters interjected to transition the awkward section into a commercial break.

Three 9-year-old children and three adults were slain prior to Hale being shot and killed by police.
The attack’s circumstances have led many to label it a hate crime against Christians. Hale had previously attended Covenant, a Protestant private school.
