The Five to Melissa Harris-Perry: If ‘Obamacare’ Is Racist, So Is Obama

Fox News’ The Five isn’t buying Melissa Harris-Perry‘s suggestion that “Obamacare” is a racially-motivated, “derogatory” term. They played the clip of the MSNBC host’s remarks on Monday afternoon before going around the table to express their outrage.

After showing video of President Barack Obama using the term himself, Greg Gutfeld said, “I thought Katy was the dumb Perry.”

Eric Bolling gave the MSNBC “professor” credit for being “smart” enough to get this “provocative commentary” out there and drum up some publicity for herself. “But that is honestly ridiculous,” he said of her comments. “President Obama’s called it Obamacare, so is he racist?”

“The provocative commentary is coming from you on a daily basis on this show,” Bob Beckel added in response to Bolling.
