Fox News’ The Five Gets Heated Over Trump Apologizing to Kavanaugh: ‘Why Doesn’t He Apologize to Ms. Ford?’

Last night President Donald Trump apologized to Brett Kavanaugh at the Supreme Court Justice’s swearing-in ceremony for what he and his family have gone through. On Fox News’ The Five today, Juan Williams argued with his co-hosts over whether he should have done that.

Greg Gutfeld said the apology was “necessary and deserved” because the way Kavanaugh and his family were treated was “disgraceful.” He added that Democrats like Dianne Feisntein and maybe even the media should apologize to Kavanaugh too.

Jesse Watters said the GOP base is pretty fired up by now and Trump has “exposed the left as kind of #MeToo maniacs.”

“And all the left can do,” he continued, “is talk about the words he used and the optics of the event… When Barack Obama does something, it’s never political, but when Donald Trump does something it’s nakedly partisan.”

Williams argued the tone was different and said last night’s event felt like “revenge of the Republicans.”

He said it looked like a “campaign ad at the White House.” Gutfeld shot back that Trump was “apologizing to a family whose lives were ruined,” to which Williams asked, “Why didn’t he apologize to Ms. Ford?”

Gutfeld said, “He doesn’t owe her an apology.”
