New York Times columnist Paul Krugman upset a lot of people with his Sunday blog post in which he claimed “the memory of 9/11 has been irrevocably poisoned” by the likes of George W. Bush and Rudy Giuliani. Former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld expressed his outrage by canceling his subscription to the publication.

“The Five” co-host and “Red Eye” host Greg Gutfeld condemned Krugman’s article on Monday’s broadcast of “The Five.”

“So, on the 10th anniversary of 9/11, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman delivered the odious piece of drivel on the attack,” Gutfeld said. “The headline is ‘Years of Shame.’ It’s not directed at radical Islam. Instead he targets America and its quote, ‘fake heroes.’ Krugman claims that the atrocity has been hijacked – a sick word since he is not talking about the real hijackers that killed 3,000 Americans. He’s referring to George Bush and Rudy Giuliani who he thinks capitalized on the horrible crimes.”

Krugman closed the comment section on his blog for the controversial post, which Gutfeld took issue with. He offered a few harsh words for the columnist.

“The worst part, at the end of the column, the creep writes ‘I’m not going to allow comments on the post for obvious reasons,” Gutfeld said. “That obvious reason: He’s a coward. Why else would you ban responses? He is like a 10-year-old boy crank calling all of us to hang up before he hears the response, hearing shame for his own wickedness. Now I watched the memorial services and I feel sorry for the families whose grief never ends, but since I’m lousy at emotional reflection, usually I avoid it. But I can summarize how many feel today in nine words: Go to hell Paul Krugman, you bitter bearded buffoon.”
