“The Five” co-host Greg Gutfeld used the analogy of “competition” to explain how, thanks to President Donald Trump, black and Hispanic voters who he says have long been taken for granted by Democrats now have a viable voting option.
During a segment Tuesday, co-host Dana Perino played a clip of Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris, who appeared to slip up when she referred to “a Harris administration” should the former vice president win in November.
The segment also included Biden referring to a “Harris-Biden” administration in a separate campaign appearance.

After remarking that the two candidates and their party “are having a hard time hiding the reality” that Biden, while president, may take a back seat to Harris if he wins, Gutfeld went on to explain his “competition” theory.
“She’s the president, right? He’s just the seat warmer,” Gutfeld said, theorizing that there are “people that are above him” managing things.
“Can I talk about the Latino issue?” Gutfeld continued, a possible reference to the president’s Monday “Latinos For Trump” roundtable in Phoenix. “Because it’s not just Latinos, it’s blacks.”
In his competition analogy, Gutfeld began by explaining that he has only one cable company in upper New York, where he lives.
“Now, if there’s a power outage, and I don’t get good service or whatever, it’s not like I can switch,” Gutfeld continued, “because I only have one cable company.”
Meanwhile, he went on, “there’s a town next door with two cable companies, so when there’s a mass power outage, where is the service guy gonna go to first?”
The Five co-host opined that the repair person would go to the town where there are two cable companies “‘cause he’ll be fearful that he’ll lose his clients to competition.”
“He doesn’t have to worry about that with me. If I lose my cable, I gotta deal with it ‘cause it’s not like I can switch,” Gutfeld noted further, adding: “This is the problem with Democratic voting blocs.”
He said that Democrats have long viewed minority voters as a given, saying “they’re the only game in town.”
“So, if they treat you bad, you’re stuck with them, whether you’re blacks, or you’re Latinos, you’re stuck because they’re the only cable company in town,” he said.
“But the problem is, that’s changing because Trump has actually changed the game as a non-ideologue. He knows that you have nowhere else to go unless you go to him,” Gutfeld continued, noting that voters feel like they are empowered “when people are fighting over you.”
“You go to the Republican Party as a Latino or a black, you could run the damned thing,” he continued. “People would be so happy to see you they would go crazy.”
Meanwhile, he suggested, Democrats will only continue to take minority voters for granted. “You’re that bloc we can depend on.”
“You come to the Republicans, you’re gonna get first-class treatment — that’s the difference,” he added. “Competition works.”
According to recent polling, support for the president among blacks and Latinos has been rising as rioting and violence continue to dominate headlines.
