The Five’s Greg Gutfeld Calls The Roots ‘Sleazy,’ ‘Cowards’ For Michele Bachmann Song Stab

Fox News’ The Five kicked up the Michele BachmannJimmy Fallon controversy (It was reported earlier today that Fallon’s house band, The Roots, played Bachmann on to the show with a version of Fishbone’s “Lyin’ Ass Bitch”), and absolutely tore into the band and NBC for allowing this to happen. Taking the most offense was Greg Gutfeld, who painted The Roots as both cowards and politically-motivated entertainers.

“They don’t have the guts to talk to her when they’re in the green room,” Gutfeld said. “The band can go to the green room and say, ‘I don’t like you,’ but, instead, they do this because they’re cowards, they’re wusses, and they hate conservative women.”

Bob Beckel noted that Gutfeld’s assessment was, “probably true,” while Kimberly Guilfoyle jumped in and said it was disrespectful to Bachmann. “They’re big losers for doing that,” she added.

Gutfeld wasn’t done. He said that this is a bigger example of how entertainers treat conservative women.

“They never would have done this to Nancy Pelosi,” Gutfeld said. “It’s so sleazy.”
