Greg Gutfeld, a co-host on “The Five,” clarified and provided support for the statements made by former President Donald Trump concerning the deteriorating state of the economy. By doing so, he also fired a verbal dig at a co-host of “The View” who leans to the left.
Trump faced severe criticism from progressive cable news networks and Democratic politicians earlier this week due to his assertion that the economy is destined for a recession, which would ideally transpire before the election.
“And when there’s a crash, I hope it’s going to be during these next 12 months because I don’t want to be Herbert Hoover,” stated Trump in an interview with legendary news host, Lou Dobbs.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt, the Democratic candidate, defeated Herbert Hoover in the 1932 election, subsequent to the stock market crash of October 1929 that instigated the Great Depression.
Trump expressed his belief that the economy is delicate and “the only reason it’s running now is it’s running off the fumes of what we did.”
Prominent political and news analysts on the left, as well as members of the Biden administration, have made claims suggesting that Trump may have lashed out for an economic recession.
“When it comes to a commander-in-chief’s duty, they’re not supposed to wish for an economic downturn,” stated Biden’s press secretary, Karine Jean-Pierre, in response to the comments. “They’re supposed to put the American people first; that is what the commander-in-chief is supposed to do. They’re not supposed to hope that American families suffer.”
Gutfeld elaborated that Trump’s statement diverged significantly from what had been previously asserted, while simultaneously stating that he would be removed from The Five or depart from it if it received low ratings.
“He — what Trump said is if the economy bottoms out, I hope it’s before I’m in office. That’s what he said,” Gutfeld elucidated. “But the media ran with it saying, like, he wants the economy to crumble.
“Let me translate this so the media understands it, the people who work in cable news. If The Five ever gets a low rating, and I’m not saying it will, I don’t want to be on that show! Right? I don’t want to be on that show,” Gutfeld went on.
“Now, I didn’t say when The Five gets a low rating because it never does, but if it does, I don’t want to be on the show. Does that sink into Joy Reid’s head now? ‘Oh, I get it. He was saying he didn’t want — he doesn’t want it to happen, but if it does, before he becomes president. Now I understand,’” Gutfeld hilariously and sarcastically explained.
A pollster indicates that Trump’s ongoing prosecution by the Biden administration has resulted in his being perceived as a martyr of considerable significance who has been unjustly persecuted, comparable in stature to Nelson Mandela. This perception might be advantageous in his bid to reclaim the presidency.
Last week, Paul Bedard of the Washington Examiner reported that “Nearly 7 in 10 voters, or 69%, believe that politics ‘has played’ a role in the four indictments against Trump, according to a new survey shared with Secrets.”
He stated that “Voters are angered at what they see as Democratic strong-arm tactics to take out America’s most popular politician with legal and political tactics and believe that President Joe Biden and his Justice Department are behind it.”
Furthermore, it was found that 58% of the respondents held the opinion that Biden had contributed to ensuring that Trump would be indicted. A third of Democratic respondents, 54% of black voters, and 58% of Hispanic respondents shared this view. The findings of the research indicated that a significant proportion of participants, precisely 56%, would like to see the Department of Justice (DOJ) “cease singling out Donald Trump and refrain from intervening in the forthcoming presidential election; Biden should defer to the electorate in determining the next president.”
According to long-time GOP pollster John McLaughlin, who Trump hired during his first run, “Biden is trying to make Donald Trump the Nelson Mandela of America.”
In his writing, McLaughlin states Mandela spent 27 years in jail because he opposed South Africa’s white leadership and he was elected president when he was eventually freed, turned out of jail as a hero for standing firm in rejecting his opponents.
The poll was done before the left-leaning Colorado Supreme Court booted Trump off the primary ballot pending an appeal, but McLaughlin said the move fits a pattern Republican and some moderate voters see as a Soviet-style effort to silence enemies.
Barack Obama, an individual who has subtly wielded influence within the Biden administration, has articulated grave apprehensions regarding the potential ramifications that may ensue should the incumbent president be unable to secure re-election in the face of former president Donald Trump.
An alarming development regarding the Biden campaign was noted by NBC.
The Washington Post, a publication widely recognized for its Democratic Party affiliation, recently published an article alleging that the Obama camp was dissatisfied with the Biden campaign. This could potentially undermine the odds of success for the incumbent president.
Former President Barack Obama has raised questions about the structure of President Biden’s reelection campaign, discussing the matter directly with Biden and telling the president’s aides and allies the campaign needs to be empowered to make decisions without clearing them with the White House, according to three people familiar with the conversations.
