Kimberly Guilfoyle, a frequent Fox News host, proves how insane that network is by saying if Sgt. Bergdahl had been released to U.S. troops, they would have put him in a body bag.

Fox News' The Five is usually my pick as worst cable TV news show on television, but "Outnumbered" is quickly rising among the ranks of the worstest and Kimberly Guilfoyle, a frequent guest on both shows proves my point when she said that if Sgt. Bergdahl had been released to his own troops, they would have put him in a body bag. These sickening displays of machismo wingnut fantasies are appalling.

Tom Kludt:

Echoing her fellow conservatives who oppose the prisoner swap that secured Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl's release, Fox News personality Kimberly Guilfoyle said Friday that the POW was lucky he wasn't found by his fellow soldiers before the exchange. Otherwise, Guilfoyle said, Bergdahl may have been brought home "in a body bag."

And on Friday's episode of "Outnumbered," Guilfoyle said that things may not have ended so well for Bergdahl had he been discovered by U.S. soldiers instead of being brought back as part of an exchange."He's pretty lucky that he was brought home the way he was because if those special forces had found him and encountered him and they were looking for him, he would have come home either in a body bag or come home and gone straight to jail," Guilfoyle said.

Instead, Guilfoyle complained, Bergdahl's family was brought to the White House to appear alongside President Obama, and National Security Adviser Susan Rice paid tribute during a television interview to the soldier's service.

if U.S. soldiers had executed Sgt Bergdahl like you believe then they would be brought up on murder charges, Kimberly. Idiot.

Please make it stop. My head hurts.

(We usually catch all the craziness on TV for you, but I like to give links to the good guys also and TPM is one of the good guys.)
