The Five: Obama Only Golfs Because Fox News Tells Him Not To

It’s Friday, which means Fox News’ The Five just six solid minutes complaining about President Barack Obama’s “addiction” to golf. After the president hit the links on Martha’s Vineyard following delivering his comments on the beheading of American journalist James Foley by ISIS, co-host Greg Gutfeld posited that the only reason Obama golfs so much is because Fox News tells him not to.

“The president is driven by critics more than common sense,” Gutfeld declared. “Maybe he was not planning on golfing after that grim press conference, but chose to because some expressed concern he would. Does Obama golf because FNC says not to? Does he do everything because FNC says not to?”

In the spirt of reverse psychology, Gutfeld tried telling Obama that Al Sharpton is “keen thinker” and pipelines are “deeply racist.”

What followed was a general consensus from all five hosts that Obama should have gone golfing directly after sharing his thoughts on Foley’s execution. Eric Bolling found “Morning RINO” Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski’s defense of Obama particularly outrageous. “They weren’t kidding,” Bolling said. “They were seriously covering up for the ridiculous tone the president took by going to the golf course.”
