The Five: CMAs Obamacare Parody Reflected ‘Real, True, Heart and Soul’ of America

Now that Obamacare jokes have become the norm on late night TV, it was a no brainer for the Country Music Awards to open last night’s show with a parody song from hosts Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood called “Obamacare By Morning.” But that didn’t stop The Five’s Greg Gutfeld from commending the “rare” sight of “Obama mockery” on TV.

Eric Bolling was equally impressed with the “hilarious” song, but noticed a bit of a divide in the reactions from those sitting in the live audience. “You could see the real, true Republican conservatives, heart and soul of the country, laughing,” Bolling observed. Meanwhile all the “Hollywood seat fillers who aren’t supposed to be there” were all “nervous, they’re all looking around like ‘should I laugh?'”

“They don’t want to laugh, because they don’t want to catch an IRS audit!” Kimberly Guilfoyle responded. “I loved this, because I thought it was refreshing,” she added.

“I love what they did with the Country Music Awards,” guest host Jedediah Bila added. “I think It’s really gutsy. These people have to go back to their Hollywood friends. They’re going to take a lot of heat for that when they go back to liberal Hollywood.”
