The Five’s co-host Greg Gutfeld trolled liberal co-host Jessica Tarlov with a Biden multiple-choice selection that caught the attention of Daily Beast’s media reporter Justin Baragona and, from there, the left had a collective meltdown over a joke they took way too seriously.
The multiple-choice jest asked if President Biden was “racist with blood on his hands.” Liberals on Twitter came unglued over the joke showing a profound lack of humor.
Baragona tweeted, “Let’s check in on Fox News’ 5 pm hour — which is consistently one of the network’s most-watched programs” and posted the multiple-choice graphic Gutfeld used in his joke.
Then he tried to assert that Tarlov attempted to hit Gutfeld over the head with his own joke and failed, “The Five’s liberal pundit Jessica Tarlov tried to throw Greg Gutfeld’s joke back in his face. ‘I feel like the producers like you more than me… none of the above, obviously. E). New invention to your game.'”

Gutfeld in turn retweeted Baragona’s tweet, eviscerating him in the process, “nice try, dope – trying to cover for your own cluelessness missing the parody. you had one job – watching tv – and you can’t even do that correctly. best of luck to your therapist.”
Contributor to The Daily Caller Bradley Stein tweeted, “@greggutfeld was literally parodying pundits like you and it went right over your head just like everything else. I mean how do you people fall for this crap every single time?🤣”
Gutfeld responded, “his only job is to watch the five and grab clips, and he cant even do that. its priceless how stupid these people are.”

Gutfeld would carry over the joke to his Friday night episode of “Gutfeld!,” informing the left that “if you can’t see that that is a joke, ‘The View’ is looking for a new cast member and you should audition immediately.”

Washington Post columnist Brian Klaas got his knickers in a twist over the joke and tweeted, “I’ve lived in several authoritarian regimes and this is more blatant and over-the-top than many of the state media propaganda networks in those countries.”
Gutfeld actually had to explain the joke to the so-called intellectual, “But, it was blatant and over-the-top which is usually a sign that it’s a joke. Here is another lefty with stage IV cancer of the funnybone. These people can spell ‘funny’ if you gave them the FU. Anyway, that guy’s a columnist for the Washington post, you couldn’t tell the difference between parody and reality.”
Brian, you really should get out more; then you would know it was parody. but in the meantime, here's a parting thought: HAHAHAHAHAHA.

Gutfeld also pointed out a piece from Ron Dicker by HuffPost, “Fox News’ Jokey Joe Biden Graphic Isn’t Funny At All.”
He referred to the media outlet as “a listical junk site that spends endless space labeling half of America bigots and murderers.”
Gutfeld compared his joke to “performance art” and said, “from now I’m doing nothing but fake questions, ’cause it’s going to be so much fun.”
He ended his monologue with another multiple-choice quiz.
“Does the media intentionally avoid big stories because it exposes their incompetence and corruption?” After reading the options of “A. Yes. B. Of Course. C. A and B and D. All of the Above,” he remarked, “that question is not a joke.”
A number of people nailed the left for lacking any sense of humor:

The media can’t even understand when they’re being mocked in an obvious joke.
