The Five Rips Colbert’s ‘Propagandist’ Hillary Clinton Bit: He’s ‘Sucking Up’

Hillary Clinton faced off with Stephen Colbert this week for a rather awkward comedy sketch. The hosts of Fox’s The Five not only thought the entire thing was unfunny, but Greg Gutfeld went so far as to call Colbert a “propagandist.”

In the segment, Colbert and Clinton engaged in a duel involving who could name-drop more people in a single conversation.

Dana Perino said this came off as just “manufactured and not authentic,” and found it a bad sign when “comedians start protecting the politicians.”

Andrea Tantaros said Clinton’s just not funny like her husband or President Obama are. Eric Bolling surmised that Colbert’s clearly “sucking up” to Clinton now so that when he takes over The Late Show, he’ll be able to land an interview with her.
