“The Five” co-host who asserted that former President Donald Trump merits all four of his charges was reportedly rebuked strongly by Fox News presenter Greg Gutfeld.
Trump and 18 other people were indicted by a grand jury in Fulton County, Georgia, for allegedly trying to rig the state’s 2020 presidential election.
Fox co-host Harold Ford Jr. attempted to argue that the latest charges against former President Trump were justified.
However Fox News personality Greg Gutfeld was having none of it:
“You don’t think this is totally over the top? As a judge, four? I mean, even when — everything you say makes sense except it’s all bullshit! It’s all nonstop, we know this is designed to banish an isolated, destroy a political outsider who predicted this. Chuck Schumer, remember this? Don’t mess with the intel agencies. They’ll arrest your team and keep it off the field.” Gutfeld said.
“Do you not think he’s done anything?” Ford asked in response.
“He is probably one of the most troubling, consequential figures in history, but no. He doesn’t deserve any of this,” Gutfeld replied.
All four of Trump’s indictments have drawn criticism from some conservatives for occurring during his presidential campaign, in which he is presently the front-runner among Republicans, as well as for the accusations’ specifics.
Charges against Trump and his colleagues include conspiracy to conduct forgery in the first degree, the Georgia (RICO) Act, solicitation of violating an oath by a public official, and conspiracy to make false statements and writings.
The Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg handed Trump a 34-count indictment accusing him of fabricating financial records to pay $130,000 in hush money to former porn actress Stormy Daniels before the 2016 election. Trump also faces charges in New York and Washington, D.C.
