The Five Reacts to Obama’s Shot at Fox: ‘He Bashes FNC More than ISIS’

President Obama took a shot at Fox News during a speech today, and the hosts of The Five responded today by, again, laughing at it. Greg Gutfeld said, “He bashes FNC more than ISIS, and we don’t behead anybody.”

Obama joked today, “While good affordable health care might seem like a fanged threat to the freedom of the American people on Fox News, it turns out it’s working pretty well in the real world.”

Gutfeld said Obama does this because Fox is “the only network that tries to challenge him.” Eric Bolling was amazed that rather than being just off-the-cuff, this was a line someone actually wrote for the president to say.

Dana Perino, who worked as George Bush‘s press secretary for a few years, said if anyone had ever given her a draft of a speech with a dig at MSNBC, she would have flipped.
