On Sunday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “The Greg Gutfeld Show,” host Greg Gutfeld and Concerned Veterans for America’s Senior Military Advisor Amber Smith criticized Donald Trump for his comments about Senator John McCain (R-AZ).
Gutfeld stated Trump’s remarks were “almost a Comedy Central roast insult” that were a result of him surrounding himself with “sycophants that always agree with him.” And “We’re making fun of Trump because he’s — we considered him less sophisticated than other politicians, but he really isn’t. He’s — He might just be a little bit too honest and reckless, but I don’t see how you can get out of this.”
Smith said Trump’s comments were “pure ego” and show “how Donald Trump really feels about America’s veterans and our current military. And to me, that’s not commander-in-chief material.” She added, “I think that that’s what people originally liked about Trump when he first joined the race, is they’re like, ‘Oh, he’s going to say what everybody else is thinking and that’s what we like about him, is he tells it like it is,’ but don’t go after America’s veterans. How dumb do you have to be? That is political suicide right there.”
Gutfeld concluded the segment with, “Donald Trump finally gave the RNC the open door to go in and say, ‘Enough.’ We’ve had your fun.” And that “hardcore conservatives” would never defend a liberal if they said something similar, and thus can’t simply dismiss Trump’s comments as “no big deal.”
