On Monday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s “The Five,” co-host Greg Gutfeld reacted to Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll’s play calling at the end of last night’s Super Bowl, which caused his team to lose to the New England Patriots after team quarterback Russell Wilson threw an interception.
According to Gutfeld, it was a case of Carroll over-thinking the play call, which he tied to Carroll’s alleged 9/11 trutherism.
“When you see a play that was so deliberately self-destructive, the only thing you can conclude is that it was an inside job,” Gutfeld said. “Coach Pete Carroll is a 9/11 truther. He believes government had something to do with what happened that ended up in the deaths of almost 3,000 people. So, I believe this is an inside job. Now I have to wonder why did Pete Carroll throw the game? It’s in order to lose his job so he can work for Alex Jones. That is my theory. There is actually some truth to this. What Carroll did was thought himself out of the right call. There was an expected and obvious play he had to make. And he chose the more complicated one, which is exactly what a truther does. A truther sees the obvious before – he see the planes hitting the building, but he chose the more complicated idea because it appeared edgier and daring and it would appear daring and brave if you are actually right. But, if the truthers are right they would be heroes but they are wrong so they are fools.”
