The Five Explodes After Juan Williams Accuses Trump of Using Military ‘To Get Out’ of Charlottesville ‘Hole’

Juan Williams sparred with his co-hosts after he gave his honest reaction to President Trump‘s speech that announced further military action in Afghanistan.

Williams insisted that his colleagues “were blind” to reality from the solar eclipse that occurred earlier in the day and made the following argument:

“When I see Donald Trump stand up there- the U.S. military has long been a model of success in terms of race relations, and Donald Trump finds this opportune moment to use them as a toy to say, ‘You know that stuff I was saying about, when I didn’t understand what Nazis and white supremacists and neo-nazis was about, I forgot what World War II was about, and when real American patriots shed blood to fight those Nazis, there was no equivalence. No, no, no. But he didn’t say that! Instead, now he’s saying, ‘Oh yeah, so you know what, just like when you go and fight a war, or you should be able to come home, so if we have never had these arguments… This is brand new. This to me… is the absolute most cheap use of our military from a guy who was in a hole and has damaged his presidency in a way that he will not recover.”

This caused many groans from his co-hosts, with Greg Gutfeld calling it “nonsense.”

Kimberly Guilfoyle called such an assertion “disingenuous” for saying that Trump “would squander lives” in order to “get himself out of a political pickle.”

Then Guilfoyle and Williams got into a shouting match after he generalized all the generals who pushed for Trump to take action in Afghanistan as “screeching hawks.”

“That’s not fair!” Guilfoyle shot back. “It’s disparaging people that serve in the military!
