Fox Host Recalls The Good Old Days When They United Around Hating Obama

And now they have to deal with their own garbage.

It's just now occurring to these Fox flacks that their penchant for divisiveness has something to do with the train wreck of a 2016 campaign, apparently.

It was so much easier for them when they could unify around hating Obama, but now they have to contend with their own bile, and it's not pretty.

Greg Gutfeld lamented on The Five about it on Wednesday.

GREG GUTFELD (CO-HOST): What we're doing is we're pointing out this fractured strife among the Republican Party. But us pointing that out is like Charlie Sheen pointing out your drug habit. We, as a show, are facing internal strife. From a micro-level to a macro-level. You can look at conservative websites like Breitbart, how much that has fallen apart since the Trump nomination. You can look at The Five. On any given day, we have tension over this nomination, over this candidate. You can look at our network as a whole, which is -- don't look at me. But you can look at this network, where we are having issues within a family of anchors over this stuff. You can look at the Party. So at every area where there is conservatism, there is strife. And I just remember the good old days where we could all unite against the hatred for Obama. When it was so easy.

ERIC BOLLING (CO-HOST): Oh, it'll be back.

GUTFELD: It'll be back. But somehow, Trump has shattered that, and now we're sitting here, we're grappling with this internal strife and we have no way to get out of this. So when we're talking about the convention and we're talking about how do we improve this, we actually have to talk amongst ourselves as conservatives, as Republicans. Can we express our grievances honestly about how we feel about this so that we can move beyond? So we can unite. I'm not talking like an encounter group, but I'm saying we all have to be honest with each other.

I'm guessing the internal anchor fights concern Megyn Kelly and Sean Hannity. Maybe even Billo, but he's irrelevant at this point, for the most part.

They're deluding themselves if they think this is going away. This is the heart of the Republican Party now. It doesn't matter if it's Trump, Cruz or Kasich. They're all equal opportunity haters, but Trump actually expresses it instead of pretending not to be, like Cruz and Kasich do.

It sure is fun to see them whine, though.
