Fox News host Greg Gutfeld on Wednesday defended President Trump’s comments about Kavanaugh accuser Christine Blasey Ford made Tuesday during a rally in Mississippi, and accused the critical media of hypocrisy for considering actor Matt Damon’s portrayal of Kavanaugh “sparkling and brilliant and daring.”
“I had one beer!” Trump told the Mississippi crowd Tuesday night as he mocked Ford’s account. “How did you get home? I don’t remember. How did you get there? I don’t remember. Where is the place? I don’t remember. How many years ago was it? I don’t know. I don’t know. I don’t know! I don’t know! What neighborhood was it in? I don’t know. Where is the house? I don’t know. Upstairs, downstairs, where was it? I don’t know. But I had one beer, that’s the only thing I remember. And a man’s life is in tatters. His life is shattered.”
As the panel on “The Five” delved into the topic, Gutfeld weighed in by hammering a media quick to condemn Trump while laughing at Damon. (RELATED: HE SPOOFED ‘ANGRY KAVANAUGH’ ON ‘SNL,’ BUT HERE’S HOW MATT DAMON SAID HE’D HANDLE ACCUSATIONS)
“The media is saying that Trump’s comments about Ford were a mockery or an attack are the same media who thought Matt Damon’s ridicule of Kavanaugh was sparkling and brilliant and daring,” said Gutfeld. “And yet they find that Trump said something yesterday and they called it mockery or an attack when all he did was point out a discrepancy.”
The Fox News host then pointed out the common sense of “rally Trump,” who is essentially like many ordinary Americans at home.
“What Trump did, if that was an attack to you then you really do live in a bubble, because if you go home or you go to a bar or you talk to somebody at the gym, what Trump said is exactly the opinions of everybody at home going ‘Some of her stuff has holes in it. That stuff about only having one drink but not remembering everything else.’ The common sense, what would you call, the ‘rally Trump,’ it reflects most of America and he is revealing the contrast of the public and private expression about this case, that so many people publicly will say she is credible and compelling. But then they go home and go, ‘dude, she is not making sense on a lot of it.'”
