This segment from The Five started with Eric Bolling spinning fantasies that Trump might actually be "activating" heretofore unknown motherlodes of Republican voters, and Juan Williams laying down actual poll numbers and some painful truth:

ERIC BOLLING: Do we know there's not enough voters in the base? There hasn't been enough in the past.

JUAN WILLIAMS: I know you don't love polls. but the polls are pretty good.

BOLLING: You are bringing out more and more voters than ever before. You can't apply the same numbers from prior elections.


WILLIAMS: no, you do not. I'm saying, right now, the key -- what swung the swing states, Eric, and what is swinging the national numbers way beyond margin of error is the idea that Trump is now down among women. He used to be down about 12. Now he is down about 21. You know what? it used to be that the educated Republican women, Kimberly Guilfoyle, Dana Perino were like, we're not sure about this Donald Trump guy. Now working class Republican women are even! With Trump and Hillary Clinton! That's killing him.

BOLLING: North Carolina, Ohio, Florida

WILLIAMS: Keep going. you are living in a delusion.

BOLLING: They are within the margin of error.

WILLIAMS: Go ahead.

Greg Gutfield has to change the subject. And he comes up with the perfect solution to the Republican Trump conundrum. Let's just make Trump a robot!

GREG GUTFIELD: Can I bring up a study that came up? The American Psychological Association says that 52% of adults say this election has been a somewhat significant source of stress. This election is tearing people apart.


GREG GUTFIELD: You know what my solution is. Begins with an "r" and ends with an "s." Robots. We have to start thinking about our political leaders becoming automated. They have no past. If they have a past, you can erase it. You can't hack the robots. They don't have -- they don't send e-mails. They don't have affairs. They don't assault women. I welcome our robot overlords. Death to humans!

No I don't think Greg Gutfield was threatening Donald Trump's life. Just wishing they could erase everything about him as a human being. Can't blame them.

And of course, we have to end segments on "The Five" with some nudge-nudge wink-wink good old fashioned...on the job workplace sexual banter! Initiated by a male fellow employee! On the subject of robots assaulting women! Yay!

GUILFOYLE: I wouldn't put it past a robot just yet.

GREG GUTFIELD: A robot with you, I could see being tempted.

GUILFOYLE: It's happened.

I'll bet it has, Kimberly. I'll bet it has.

Can you help us out?
