Gutfeld: Democratic Debate Was ‘So Depressing’ ‘Like a Rock Concert for Occupy Wall Street’

In a break from the more traditional post-debate analysis routine, the Fox News Channel chose to award the cast of The Five its sole post-Democratic debate hour on Thursday and, of course, it featured humorous quips from co-host Greg Gutfeld. 

The quirky Gutfeld opined that, among many spit takes throughout the hour, the debate was more along the lines of a “wild kingdom” instead of “a country bear jamboree” in which “Hillary didn’t just take off her gloves” but “wanted to take off [Bernie Sanders’s] head.”

Overall, Gutfeld ruled that “the summary of the whole thing is so depressing” seeing as how “[t]he motto of the Democratic Party should be we're against everything that works because they went after fracking, business, law enforcement, fossil fuel, common sense, capitalism, firearms, anything that might actually be successful, they were against.”

As for the raucous debate audience at the Brooklyn site, Gutfeld lambasted them as being both “pathetic” and “terrible” similar to “a rock concert for Occupy Wall Street” with “so much cheering, so much rooting.”

GREG GUTFELD: I watched the whole thing. It was like a contest between who can give away the most stuff and it — at first, it looked like it's going to be like a country bear jamboree, but then all of a sudden it became the wild kingdom and Hillary didn’t just take off her gloves. She wanted to take off his head and then he had to decide to fight back because he didn’t realize she was going to come at him like that, but it was just — the summary of the whole thing is so depressing. The motto of the Democratic Party should be we're against everything that works because they went after fracking, business, law enforcement, fossil fuel, common sense, capitalism, firearms, anything that might actually be successful, they were against. It was horrible and the crowd was terrible. The crowd — it was like a rock concert for Occupy Wall Street. So much cheering, so much rooting. It was just pathetic.
