As The Five discussed the Alabama senate race today, Greg Gutfeld argued that the long term consequences of a Roy Moore victory could prove damaging for the GOP in the long run.
As the Fox News panel discussed the election, they noted how the race has become surprisingly competitive despite Alabama’s red state reputation and President Trump‘s full-throated endorsement for Moore. Gutfeld lamented that the race has descended into “team sport politics,” and he also suggested that Trump’s endorsement is coming purely through that lens:
“He did not want to do this. He endorsed Strange, he knew that this guy was a problem… Even though Trump is endorsing this guy, it’s ’cause he has to because it is his team. And I have to say, I hope the guy loses. And if you’re upset that I say that, that is not on me. That is on the team sport ideology that’s pernicious because the long-term consequences of a Moore is much worse than the initial loss that you will experience tomorrow. Trust me.”
