Fox News Host Rips ‘Disgraceful’ Hillary Clinton For Rejection of Civility: ‘She Sounds Unhinged’


You won’t see a segment about President Donald Trump urging rallygoers to beat up protestors on The Five, but you will see the Fox News show absolutely tear into Hillary Clinton for her comments rejecting civility.

“You cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about,” Clinton said in an interview this week. “That’s why I believe, if we are fortunate enough, to win back the House and/or the Senate, that’s when civility can start again. Until then, the only thing Republicans seem to recognize and respect is strength.”

The Five decried Clinton’s comments as fueling acrimony and even violence against Republican lawmakers. Jedidiah Bila — who used to be critical of Trump but has favored Dem-bashing in her recent appearances guest-hosting The Five — really took things to 11 with a heated critique of the former secretary of state and failed presidential candidate.

Her commentary came after Juan Williams chided his co-hosts for their claims that heated rhetoric and violence are exclusively liberal traits. “It’s like the Tea Party never existed, they never threw a brick through a window.”

“Did you see any leaders of the [Tea Party] movement talking like this?” Bila asked Williams. “I mean this woman could have been president. She’s disgraceful. I think she sounds unhinged.”

“Are you kidding?” Williams asked.

“Did you hear Mitt Romney say stuff like this?” Bila asked, curiously citing the 2012 presidential candidate as her example, and not the current president. “This is coming from someone who could’ve been president. She should be embarrassed.”

Williams retorted: “I think I heard the president of the United States say fine people were involved in the mob action in Charlottesville.”

“No, no, no, you’ve got it wrong,” Bila replied.
