Greg Gutfeld snaps at 'The Five' co-host Harold Ford Jr. over Trump indictments

Never one to pull punches during his appearances on Fox News, network personality Greg Gutfeld recently lost his temper at a fellow commentator who suggested that former President Donald Trump's multiple criminal indictments were deserved, as the Daily Caller reports.

The dust-up occurred during a regular installment of the weekday panel program The Five, when co-host Harold Ford Jr. weighed in on Trump's legal troubles.

Gutfeld vs. Ford

Amid a discussion of charges leveled against Trump by Fulton County, Georgia District Attorney Fani Willis last week, Ford opined that Trump should not be shielded from legal proceedings simply because he is a candidate for the presidency.

Ford, who previously served in Congress as a Democrat, also expressed his belief that – in his legal opinion – the charges against the former president are justifiable.

Gutfeld did not take kindly to Ford's assessment of the situation and appeared unable to mask his disdain.

“It's all bulls**t!”

“You don't think this is totally over the top? As a judge, four? I mean, even when – everything you say makes sense except it's all bulls**t!” Gutfeld exploded.

The outspoken commentator went on, “It's all nonstop, we know this is designed to banish an isolated, destroy a political outsider who predicted this. Chuck Schumer, remember this?”

“Don't mess with the intel agencies. They'll arrest your team and keep it off the field,” Gutfeld continued.

Asked by Ford whether he thought Trump had any culpability in terms of the charges brought against him, Gutfeld replied, “He is probably one of the most troubling, consequential figures in history, but no. He doesn't deserve any of this.”

Volatile history

Regular viewers of The View will know that this is not the first instance in which Gutfeld angrily locked horns with one of his co-hosts, as he also had multiple on-air altercations with former panelist Geraldo Rivera, as the Daily Mail has pointed out.

The Daily Beast has also chronicled the ill will between Gutfeld and Rivera, noting that the latter once referred to the former as an “insulting punk” during a heated exchange regarding abortion.

After considerable back-and-forth, Gutfeld sarcastically queried, “Oh what, am I your new Bongino?” referencing Rivera's previous televised squabbles with former network notable Dan Bongino and cementing his reputation as someone who does not suffer fools gladly.
