Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld raised eyebrows with his “theory” about former Vice President Joe Biden and where he will be, come November.
Gutfeld weighed in on the latest gaffes and controversies surrounding Biden as he spoke Friday with his co-hosts on “The Five,” saying the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee actually “spoke the Party’s truth” when he commented about the Latino community being more diverse than the African-American community.

Biden came under fire Thursday after he appeared to suggest that African-Americans have no diversity when compared to Latinos.
“Unlike the African-American community, with notable exceptions, the Latino community is an incredibly diverse community with incredibly different attitudes about different things,” he told NPR reporter Lulu Garcia-Navarro this week. “You go to Florida, you find a very different attitude about immigration in certain places than you do when you’re in Arizona.”
Hours later, Biden walked back the comments, taking to Twitter to attempt to “clarify” what he meant to say. In a video call later in the day, he addressed the comments again, insisting he didn’t mean to suggest “the African American community is a monolith.”
“So will Biden’s stumble give Trump’s campaign new momentum?” co-host Juan Williams wondered, asking Gutfeld, “Do you think that this gaffe is going to attract any more votes to President Trump other than let’s say Kanye West?”
“Gaffes are great when they tell the truth,” Gutfeld responded.
“And Joe Biden spoke the Party’s truth. They see blacks as a homogeneous entity. It’s why they mock and marginalize people like you just did with Kanye West,” he told Williams.
“Anyone who is outside the box, Kanye West, Candace Owens, Thomas Sowell. You name it if you don’t fit into the Democrats’ assumption of what a black person should be and what Joe Biden decides who a black person should be,” he continued, recounting how Biden said in an interview with a black radio host in May that members of the black community who have a “problem figuring out” whether to vote for him or President Donald Trump in November “ain’t black.”
The Democrat faced immediate backlash at the time as his surrogates and members of his campaign scrambled to put out the fire while the liberal media covered for him.
“The fact is the Dems just assume they don’t have to do squat for blacks because they’ve got them in the back pocket,” Gutfeld said Friday.
“Meanwhile, Donald Trump is actively competing for those votes. He tried to get the lowest unemployment in modern history, he helped out historical black colleges, he went for prison reform,” the Fox News co-host continued.
“Also, the difference between Republicans and Democrats, Republicans never denied Trump’s flaws. They knew that he could be crude, rude, and even offensive,” Gutfeld said, going on to point out that Democrats will not admit any of Biden’s flaws, including memory lapses and confusion.
“The Democrats, they are in full denial of a substantial, structural flaw. Their candidate may be losing his mind. It’s not even that. It’s not funny. It’s kind of sad because it would be okay if you could laugh about it,” he said, dropping his bombshell prediction.
“But this guy, he’s not going to be the nominee, Juan, and you know it. He is going to be gone before November,” he said as “The Five” co-hosts took a moment to process what he had just said.
“Biden is going to be gone?” Williams asked, surprised.
Gutfeld elaborated by noting that a vice presidential candidate has not been named by Biden yet because there are likely concerns that whoever that person may be, could end up being the president once Biden is “gone.”
“I predict that’s why they haven’t selected the VP yet,” he said.
“Because you can’t select the VP until you have the P. If you select the VP, what if the VP should be P? What if you select Kamala Harris but she should be the P, so you can’t pick her for VP,” he attempted to explain. “That’s the theory.”
“Alright, I hear you loud and clear,” Williams laughed.
During a campaign event in Delaware in late July, Biden had revealed that he would announce his running mate “the first week in August.”
Fox News host Tucker Carlson contended last month that even if the former vice president wins the election in November, he still isn’t capable of running the country, warning that Biden’s running mate “will be the most consequential VP pick in American history.”
Earlier this week, Biden blasted a CBS reporter during an interview when he was asked if he had taken a cognitive test.
“No, I haven’t taken a test. Why the hell would I take a test?” Biden shot back at Errol Barnett.
“C’mon man,” he continued. “That’s like saying, ‘You — before you got on this program you took a test where you’re taking cocaine or not, what do you think?’ Huh? Are you a junkie?”
When asked about his mental acuity in early July, Biden slammed a Fox News reporter as a “lying dogface.”
