Gutfeld: I’m Not Offended By Trevor Noah, But There’s a Double Standard

Fox News Channel host Greg Gutfeld said that he isn’t offended by new “Daily Show” host Trevor Noah’s controversial tweets, but doubts that Noah would still have a job if he was a conservative on Wednesday’s broadcast of “The Five.”

“I’m not offended, as I am bored by it all. Now, when Trevor got the job, the left assumed the right would attack him, but it’s the left that’s tearing him apart now. That’s because as conservatives, we’re not supposed to care about careless words. We invented the phrase ‘lighten up.’ We can take a joke even if it’s not funny it’s why we tolerated Rob Schneider” Gutfeld stated.

He continued, “we also know scouring the web for hurtful words is actually a much, much greater evil, especially in an era of beheadings and mass rape. The fact is, if you’ve never said anything offensive in your life, you’re probably really boring.”

Gutfeld concluded, “of course, if Trevor were a conservative, he would be frog-marched into oblivion, but that’s okay. That’s a price that you pay for living in a safari park for lefties. We have the target on our backs, not Noah. So, he will be fine. The rest of us, we won’t be so lucky.”
