Fox’s Greg Gutfeld, Thinks He Knows More About Syrian Refugees Than Obama – Because Benghazi!

Only on Fox News would a chickenhawk like Greg Gutfeld, who has not a single credential in national security, smear a twice-elected president as having “the foreign policy acumen of an end table.”

Only on Fox News would a chickenhawk like Greg Gutfeld, who has not a single credential in national security, smear a twice-elected president as having “the foreign policy acumen of an end table.”

Gutfeld loves to talk tough, like the time he smeared the Canadian Army as slackers after they took a disproportionate number of casualties serving in one of the most dangerous areas in Afghanistan. But putting his own fanny on the line? Never.

But a guy like Gutfeld doesn’t need no stinkin’ experience or education to know how to deal with ISIS, terrorism and the Middle East refugees. Apparently, Benghazi taught Gutfeld everything he needs to know! Therefore, there’s no need to listen to our president, the actual Commander-in-Chief, or to respect his call to accept refugees. To a genius like Gutfeld, Obama is a mere “grad student.”

GUTFELD: You can’t fight a war with a grad student. What [Obama’s] saying is, when he’s saying that if you stop the Syrians coming in, you’re giving in to ISIS. That’s the equivalent of saying after a home invasion in which your family’s assaulted, don’t buy locks because that will encourage more home invasions.

Remember, President Obama, who is now this expert in ISIS recruitment blamed Benghazi on a video. You cannot trust his wisdom. He has the foreign policy acumen of an end table, so just ignore it.

Cohost Juan Williams put forth a forceful rebuttal.

WILLIAMS: Don’t forget that since 2011, half of those Syrian refugees we’ve let in are children. A quarter are adults over 60 and only two percent are what you would call men of combat age.

So therefore why don’t you, Greg, and the governors [refusing to accept refugees] say, “That’s it. No more tourism in the United States. No more student visas.” Is that the America you want? I think the president is right to speak aggressively, passionately and powerfully in the spirit of the Founding Fathers about the idea that this is America, this is not going to become a place where you, for example, back in ’39, “Oh, gee, those Jews might be communists.”

Gutfeld showed that at heart he’s a coward. “I don’t think the Founding Fathers imagined ISIS,” he said. As if, as Williams pointed out, the Founding Fathers didn't have the British. But Gutfeld stayed classy as ever. “Besides, women and children are overrated,” he smirked.
