Gutfeld: ‘The Media Is Rigged, But It Was Rigged for Trump’ Media ‘Propelled Him’ Knowing He Would Be Easy To Beat

On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “The Five,” FNC host Greg Gutfeld aruged, “If it wasn’t for the media, who fell over Trump every time he sneezed, we’d have a different candidate. So, yeah, it was rigged, and that rigging gave us Trump. … Could it be the media propelled him to the top of heap, knowing he would be so easy to bring down later? Short answer, yes. Long answer, hell yes.”

Gutfeld said, “True, the media is rigged, but it was rigged for Trump all damn year. He got more free media than the weather, dwarfing not just his primary foes, but Hillary as well. If it wasn’t for the media, who fell over Trump every time he sneezed, we’d have a different candidate. So, yeah, it was rigged, and that rigging gave us Trump. He should be extremely grateful. Of course, now he still gets the same coverage, but it’s soaked in opposition research. Was he set up? Could it be the media propelled him to the top of heap, knowing he would be so easy to bring down later? Short answer, yes. Long answer, hell yes. But it feels like Trump is blaming the refs before the game is played, anticipating a loss.”

He added, “And worse, it’s a signal the worst kind of liberal identity politics has spread beyond its borders. We know liberal bias exists, but it used to be that the left were the victimhood kings. But now Trump has stolen their act, running as the champion of the cheated, which must upset the left, but the media believes only the left can be aggrieved. Thanks to Trump, now there’s competition.”

Towards the end of the segment, Gutfeld argued, “[T]he left has been stoking division forever, and it’s just the right has learned from the left.”
