Greg Gutfeld, the "clever, edgy" comedian-like character on Fox News' The Five doesn't think too much before he speaks, much like his colleagues at the propaganda arm of the GOP, Fox News. He's the guy who accused so many poor Americans of not having to file a tax return, because they don't make enough to owe any Federal Income Taxes. Gutfeld doesn't understand that every American wage-earner is required to file a federal return, but he just wants to make fun of those lowly, slovenly peasants. How quaint? Today Greg was getting his rocks off of the recent desertion charges brought upon Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Dana Perino was as giddy as a school girl as she mocked the State Department for bringing home an American soldier, held by the Taliban, even if he had allegedly deserted his post in Afghanistan. If the president had left him to the Taliban, they would have found reason to deride him for that choice.

Gutfeld began his rant about how the Obama Administration elevated Bowe Bergdahl practically to god status, even if they simply just exchanged him for Taliban prisoners. They never said he was a hero, but he did serve his country and spend five years as a captive of the Taliban. Gutfeld says,

"You'll have Matt Damon playing Bergdahl, you'll have Sean Penn playing his father, it was supposed to be a big fat gift to Obama and it wound up being all Bowe and no gift (knee slapper)."

Now he segues into Iran.

"If you can't make a decent deal over a deserter, how can you negotiate nukes with Iran?"

Gutfeld believes the president is just so gullible and so terrible at making deals. He said, before you know it, "

Good News: Iran doesn''t have nukes, but we are now the United States of Iran."

Then Kimberly Guilfoyle says, pretending to speak as President Obama,

"Oh yeah, and Israel no longer exists, but my negotiation with respect to the nukes was amazing."

That's the Fox News mantra: if President Obama doesn't kiss the ring on Netanyahu's fascist fingers, then he wants the Jewish State to be eradicated.

Next segment, the foreign policy gurus are assessing the situation in Yemen as proof that the president's strategy hasn't worked and never will. They play a Jack Keene soundbite which was all fearmongering about Iranian movements gaining influence in small part in Yemen and dominantly in Iraq, even though we all knew that. Then Gutfeld said,

"You gotta hand it to the Obama Administration, they're trying to make Yemenade out of Yemen."

Earlier in the program, Gutfeld was commenting on a coworker who, "if you have any leftover prescription medication, send it over here." So we are advocating for illegal drug use on The Five? IOKIYAR.
