Fox News’ The Five Blasts Romney: ‘You’re Becoming a Scold Now!’


The hosts of Fox News’ The Five opened Wednesday’s show going on a tear against Mitt Romney for his op-ed denouncing President Donald Trump‘s lack of character.

Greg Gutfeld pointed out how Romney’s now getting plaudits from the media that attacked in him 2012––the “strange new respect that’s gone by tomorrow.”

Jesse Watters recalled the old line about Romney being a flip-flopper before saying, “We get it, Mitt. You have great character. You drink milk. You don’t curse. It’s clear, you’re a Mormon. You go to church every Sunday. You’re perfect. We get that. You’re becoming a scold now, though, a little bit, and it’s turning people off.”

Watters added that Romney missed opportunities by not fighting back more against Barack Obama during the 2012 race.

Dan Bongino, meanwhile, said he’s “pretty pissed about this,” calling Romney a “clown” and “the biggest fraud in politics.”

Marie Harf shot back that Trump needs to care what an incoming Republican senator thinks, but she added that she cares more about what Romney does in the Senate than what he writes in an op-ed.

Kennedy said, “To any incoming freshman senator, I would say put up and shut up. We don’t really want to hear about your feelings and how you have the vapors and you’re offended by someone’s narcissism whose behavior really hasn’t changed.”
