As Fox’s Outnumbered show salivated over the imaginary collapse of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, the gang must have figured it was a good time to start in on Clinton’s possible replacements.

The pretext for this mean-spirited conjecture was a poll supposedly showing most Americans would not want a third term for President Obama. That, the five cohosts want you to believe, could mean it's curtains for Clinton!

Bernard McGuirk, the show’s #OneLuckyGuy, dug into Clinton's rival, Bernie Sanders. “What does it say that you have a disheveled, old, nutcake socialist like Bernie Sanders," McGuirk began, "who’s actually posing a threat to her and where are the cries that Bernie Sanders – and maybe even Joe Biden and Martin O’Malley, 'a bunch of misogynists.' She’s on the precipice of breaking the ultimate glass ceiling and these old, white men won’t let her do it,” McGuirk “joked.”

Such a wit, that McGuirk, eh? That was almost as funny as his “nappy-headed ho” jokes about the Rutgers women’s basketball team that got him booted off the air before Fox hired him.

Cohost Andrea Tantaros speculated that the White House is “maneuvering behind the scenes with either Joe Biden or maybe Elizabeth Warren at this point.”

That prompted some more of McGuirk’s brand of humor. “Liz Warren would be a gift from God for the Republicans,” he sneered. “She probably has posters of Mumia Abu-Jamal in her bedroom.”

Abu-Jamal, in case you don’t know, is the former Black Panther convicted (many feel wrongly) of murdering a Philadelphia police officer and in jail for life.

Nobody mentioned any actual connection between Senator Warren, who represents the state of Massachusetts, and Abu-Jamal.

But cohost Kennedy decided to join in the Warren-smearing hilarity. “She’s probably got Mumia Abu-Jamal in her bedroom,” Kennedy chimed in.

Watch it above, from the August 11 Outnumbered.
