Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld blasted President Obama on Tuesday’s edition of “The Five” for his latest incendiary remarks about Christians and Fox News.
“How do you reconcile the idea of faith being really important to you and you caring a lot about taking faith seriously with the fact that, at least in our democracy and our civic discourse, it seems as if folks who take religion the most seriously sometimes are also those who are suspicious of those not like them?” Obama asked, during his recent interview with Marilynne Robinson, which was published Monday in the New York Review of Books.
The president claimed that Christians have adopted an “us versus them” mentality.
“You’ve struggled with the fact that here in the United States, sometimes Christian interpretation seems to posit an ‘us versus them,’ and those are sometimes the loudest voices,” Obama said.
Gutfeld slammed Obama for audaciously insulting Christians, but never linking Islam to terror.
“Yeah, those crazy Christians,” Gutfeld mocked, “they’re always beheading and throwing gays off buildings. But hey, that’s our Obama doing the Obama, never linking Islam to terror.”
Obama, during that interview, also accused Fox News of trying to make him “scary” and suggested that his initial success came because “conservative media had not yet weighed in.”
“People always, I think, were surprised about me connecting with folks in small town Iowa. And the reason I did was, first of all, I had the benefit at the time that nobody expected me to win. And so I wasn’t viewed through this prism of Fox News and conservative media and making me scary.”
“It’s the Christians who are the real jerks, just like us at Fox,” Gutfeld joked.
Gutfeld argued that is Obama who has been most polarizing and clarified that it was Hillary Clinton that started the “birther movement.”
“So conservative media made him scary, I guess by conservative media, he meant Hillary, who was the first to recast him as a Kenyan-born interloper,” he said. “He also forgets who started the divisiveness. Remember the jab about Americans clinging to guns and religion – that was in 2008, but what do you expect?”
