Fox News' Dana Perino: If Hillary Made Same Trump Remarks: 'We Would All Be Going Crazy'

As some of Fox News hosts were trying to shield Trump from his second amendment threat at Hillary, co-host of The Five's Dana Perino made a very astute observation.

Fox News' The Five was unusually funny Tuesday afternoon because conservative co-host Greg Gutfeld repeatedly made fun of Eric Bolling's attempts at trying to defend Donald Trump's insane second amendment threat aimed at Hillary Clinton earlier in the day.

"And by the way, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks, although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is. I don't know."

After hearing Trump's remarks, Geraldo Rivera opened up by saying, "What the hell?"

Bolling cut in and said, "He clarified saying the second amendment will group around him to make sure she's not elected."

As he was talking, the entire panel was laughing at Bolling. And if you look at Eric's face, you can see he's trying hard not to laugh either because you can't defend the indefensible.

Gutfeld said, "You can't do it with a straight face!"

Then they played a clip of two Trump supporters sitting behind Donald at the rally basically stunned from his threats at Hillary.

Rivera then cut in and got serious, "You have to understand, this is a federal crime if he means what he says.”

Bolling was flabbergasted, but Dana Perino came in and said,"Imagine if she had said or somebody had said that about Donald Trump? Like carelessly say ‘Oh, maybe someone will assassinate him,’ I mean we would all be going crazy and say how inappropriate it was and making the point Geraldo did which is that's actually a crime."

And that is a fact.
