Fox News’ Jesse Watters and Greg Gutfeld Tear Into Obama: He’s Guilty of Everything He Accused Trump of


The hosts of Fox News’ The Five today mostly panned former President Barack Obama‘s speech at the University of Illinois today, with Greg Gutfeld and Jesse Watters calling Obama hypocritical.

Obama today denounced the politics of division, saying Trump is “a symptom, not the cause.” He railed against the Republican party, encouraged people to get out and vote, and expressed bewilderment at some of what’s been happening under his successor.

Gutfeld remarked, “What a contrast in styles… President Obama’s like drinking a dozen piña coladas on the beach. It tastes sweet and it looks like fun, then you throw up all night and remember nothing.”

He pointed to Democratic losses under Obama’s presidency and said, “The problem with all of his digs, you don’t have to look very hard to find out that he is guilty of every single one of them.”

Gutfeld cited Obama’s criticisms of Trump’s attacks on the press in particular, pointing to the targeting of James Rosen when he was president.

Watters, after calling Obama’s speech “boring,” agreed:

“Trump’s a racist? Please! You’ve been palling around with Farrakhan and Reverend Wright your entire life. Cozying up to Russia? I mean, he was whispering sweet nothings in Putin’s deputy’s ears and said I’ll do whatever you want after the elections. Let Putin run wild. Don’t give me that. He’s saying Trump is abusing the attorney general’s office? It was Obama’s team that spied, that abused FISA, that wiretapped their political enemies. So don’t give me that.”

Watters added that Obama “left the Democratic party in shambles” and the party shouldn’t take more advice from him.
