(PatrioticPost.com)- Fox News host Greg Gutfeld got into a verbal scuffle with his leftist co-host Jessica Tarlov over the state of Twitter after the acquisition by Elon Musk.
The conversation between Tarlov and Gutfeld on “The Five” started humorously enough. The hosts were reviewing Musk’s tweets, especially his latest gaffe with the assault on Paul Pelosi, the husband of Democratic Rep. Nancy Pelosi. Tarlov said that Musk tweets lies.
Gutfeld said that Musk enjoyed trolling, and at one point, Gutfeld accused Tarlov of getting too emotional.
Tarlov emphasized that this was not a joke.
Gutfeld snapped back that “it is” a joke. Gutfeld told Tarlov to look at herself and that she needed “to calm down” as it made her too emotional. He said she should embrace the use of free speech.
Tarlove said the fact that she speaks in a higher pitch doesn’t make her any more emotional than Gutfeld. It’s her estrogen.
Eventually, after some back and forth, Watters pointed out to Gutfeld that he had “told a lady she was getting too emotional.”
Tarlov followed by stating that “human resources watches the show.”
Gutfeld asked her if that was a threat.
She then joked that she would not return to tape the “d-block.” (The last segment.)
A recent study of television ratings confirms that Fox News Channel’s daily lineup continues to dominate the cable news sector and that the network once again airs the week’s highest-rated show.
AdWeek reports that “The Five” had 390,000 viewers in the essential 25-54 age category last week, crushing CNN’s Jake Tapper’s 128,000 viewers and MSNBC’s untappable number in the same time slot.
Fox News’ “Gutfeld!” at 11 p.m. EDT, anchored by The Five co-host Greg Gutfeld, was also dominating last week, with an average of 2.2 million people, which is on par with the late-night programs on ABC, NBC, and CBS on the broadcast networks.
