Greg Gutfeld Off His Meds? Epic Showdown After Gutfeld Says “I’m glad Chauvin was convicted, even if he’s not guilty…”


What’s going on at Fox News?


Fox News used to be the last television outlet for fair and balanced news.

Now, however, it appears as though they are trying to push an agenda.

The latest statement by Greg Gutfeld is the most frightening.

And keep in mind, he said this on national television.

Here’s what Greg Gutfeld had to say about the George Floyd trial:

I’m glad Chauvin was convicted, even if he’s not guilty.

Wait, a minute.

If he’s *not* guilty, why would you be happy that he was convicted?

Really! That is the OPPOSITE of justice.

You should want someone to be convicted… ONLY if they are proven guilty beyond a shadow of a doubt.

See Gutfeld’s despicable comments below:

When Gutfeld said this, the other Fox News hosts groaned.

If you re-watch and listen closely, you can listen to the other hosts and cameramen groan and mumble in disgust.

Still Gutfeld attempted to defend his statement.


Well, Business Insider reports:

The Fox News host Greg Gutfeld said on Tuesday that he had a “really selfish” reaction to the Derek Chauvin guilty verdict, and it did not go over well with the panel.

“I’m glad that he was found guilty on all charges, even if he might not be guilty of all charges,” Gutfeld said. “I’m glad that he’s guilty of all charges, because I want a verdict that keeps this country from going up in flames.”

“Oh my goodness,” his cohost Juan Williams replied.

“Look, Greg, listen,” his guest host Jeanine Pirro said before Gutfeld cut her off.

“What do you mean? No, at least I’m being honest — my neighborhood was looted,” Gutfeld said. “I don’t ever want to go through that again.”

“Greg, we do not sacrifice individuals for the sake of how people feel,” Pirro replied. “The bottom line is, that courtroom is a place where the evidence is brought in. It is pristine in terms of the way it’s handled. Everything outside of the courtroom does not enter it.”

But Gutfeld doubled down.

“OK, OK,” he said. “Whoa, whoa, whoa, did you, wait a second, did you hear what Mike Tobin” — a Fox News reporter — “said when he was interviewing some people and they said, ‘Hey, we’re not going to loot tonight, we’re going to celebrate’? So we were dealing with what we thought was a sense of extortion, that if this didn’t go a certain way — I’m speaking the truth — if it didn’t go a certain way, there was going to be destruction. We know that. Why pretend otherwise?”

His cohost Dana Perino then turned to the former South Carolina congressman Trey Gowdy, a Fox News legal analyst, for his reaction, with the panel moving on from Gutfeld’s remarks.

But that’s not all.

The saga continues.

Fox News hosts began asking Gutfeld if he was “off his meds?”

After all, what he said was crazy!

“Are you off your meds?” is not an offensive question to ask if you are behaving irrationally.

But Greg Gutfeld was not having it.

He lost his temper on national TV.

See below:

Hey… let’s be honest… it’s a fair question to ask if you suddenly begin spouting nonsense.

Especially if you are typically level headed.

According to Yahoo News, Greg Gutfeld exploded:

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld drew groans from colleagues after Derek Chauvin’s guilty verdict was announced for a particularly tone-deaf on-air statement.

“I’m just going to get really selfish,” he began. “I’m glad that he was found guilty on all charges, even if he might not be guilty of all charges. I am glad that he is guilty of all charges because I want a verdict that keeps this country from going up in flames.”

His co-anchors incredulity could be heard in the background, as Mr Gutfeld said that he was just being honest and went on to complain that his neighbourhood had been looted and he did not want to go through that again.

Judge Jeanine Pirro chastised him, saying: “We do not sacrifice individuals for the sake of how people feel.”

“I’m saying he’s guilty. I’m saying I’m glad about the verdict,” interrupted Mr Gutfeld, host of the network’s late-night show Gutfeld!

A little later in the broadcast, Mr Gutfeld was outraged when a guest called him out for the part of his comments in which he said “even if he might not be guilty of all charges”.

Speaking by phone, Ted Williams said: “I heard Greg a few minutes ago and I gotta tell you I don’t know if Greg is off his meds or if believes there was not evidence…”

Mr Williams was interrupted by Mr Gutfeld loudly exclaiming: “Excuse me… what did you say? What did he say? I’m off my meds?”

Finishing his point, Mr Williams said that if Mr Gutfeld didn’t believe there was evidence to convict Chauvin, then he had a bridge in Brooklyn to sell him.

Mr Gutfeld protested that that was not what he said.

Chauvin was found guilty on all three counts for the murder of George Floyd in May 2020. He knelt on Mr Floyd’s neck for more than nine minutes while detaining him face-first against the pavement in handcuffs during an arrest for using a counterfeit $20 bill.

This has got to be embarrassing for Greg.

And it’s also got to be embarrassing for Fox News.

They are not the same network they were during the Trump Presidency.

Hopefully they will one day regain their mojo.
