On Friday, Fox News’ “The Five” discussed the 2020 Democrats and how their campaigns are attempting to differentiate themselves from President Trump by endeavoring to be “boring.” Leftists (like Fox’s own Juan Williams) are under the impression that having Trump in the news every day is causing great anxiety among the American population. Their solution? Promises of being the “boring” president that you don’t have to think about every day.
Given that most people only know the names of about 5 of the Dems running, that isn’t too much of a stretch.
Williams – representing the left of center viewpoint – believes that boring is better when it comes to the White House.
“I think the opposite of what Republicans call Trump Derangement Syndrome, which they attach to anybody who is concerned about Trump, is Trump Anxiety Syndrome,” he suggests. “And I think the psychiatrists and psychologists have all said, ‘yes, people are more anxious with Trump in office.’ I mean just this week, Trump went after the federal reserve, I think he advised Israel to bar those two congresswomen [Reps. Rashida Tlaib and Ilhan Omar] from entering the country, nobody ever saw a president do that before.”
“I mean it never stops with this guy,” Williams concludes. “And so, of course, people are going to say ‘We’d like to get back to normal.'”
But while the other hosts were busy debating whether boring is good or bad, Greg Gutfeld was more interested in the “why.” Why do liberals suddenly crave “boring” after a mere two-and-a-half years of Trump?
When given his turn, he launched into a thoughtful, intelligent analysis of why bland might be more appealing than bold. He suggests that after so many years of elite liberalism ruling everything from academia to entertainment, liberals are finally tasting their own medicine – and they aren’t liking the flavor.
“The boring approach is based on a fact that Donald Trump can be exhausting,” he admits. “He’s packed twelve years into three years. And we know that, the right and the left understand that. But now the Democrats know how we feel. They hate waking up every morning having to face the news of Trump. That every morning they have to deal with Trump. Well, that’s what it’s been like for conservatives or Republicans for the past forty, fifty years. Modern leftism has injected politics into every part of our lives. Sports, entertainment, sex, gender, our kids. We’re suffocating under leftism.”
Gutfeld grows more and more passionate during his speech, all the while making great points with outstanding accuracy.
“It’s everywhere, everyday we wake up and we’re faced with it in our culture,” he continues. “So now we finally got somebody who’s throwing it back in your face. Every day he’s saying ‘Oh you wanna pick on us? Well, screw you.’ And it goes back to that polarization myth that the media keeps talking about. ‘Oh these are polarizing times.’ It’s only polarizing times because finally the second pole showed up! For the longest time, there was only one tent pole! It was – the left owned the ball, they owned the stadium, they own the field. Entertainment, academia, social media! Now you’ve got a guy who is saying ‘I’m here, I’m the other pole.’ Now they’re going “Oh, it’s polarizing.”

At the very end, Gutfeld hits on what every conservative has been wanting to see since Trump came down that escalator in 2015.
“But I’m telling you, this is all garbage. This is all garbage. They are mad because they have to fight. It’s about time.”
Conservatives have been dying for a fighter, someone who is going to look rampant liberalism in the eye and tell it to buzz off. Now that Republicans have elected that guy, Democrats are looking to dial it back by making “boring” the new, cool political movement.
