White Fox News Host Claims to Be Derek Chauvin’s Other Victim
A panel of Fox News hosts schooled anchor Greg Gutfield on Tuesday after he claimed that he was also a victim of convicted murderer Derek Chauvin because looting had once occurred in his neighborhood.
“Now I’m just going to get really selfish. I’m glad that he was found guilty on all charges, even if he might not be guilty of all charges, I am glad that he is guilty of all charges because I want a verdict that keeps this country from going up in flames,” Gutfield said of Chauvin’s triple conviction.
That prompted his colleagues Juan Williams and Dana Perino to respectively exclaim, “my goodness” and “oh my God.”
Even Jeanine Pirro was disgusted by Gutfield’s comments. “No, no,” she said, much to Gutfield’s confusion.
“What do you mean?” he asked. “I’m at least being honest. My neighborhood was looted. I don’t ever want to go through that again.”
Pirro shut him down.
“Now, look Greg,” Pirro, a former judge, said scoldingly. “We do not sacrifice individuals for the sake of how people feel. That courtroom is a place where the evidence is brought in. It is pristine in terms of the way it’s handled. Everything outside of the courtroom does not enter it.”
Gutfield, unable to take the hint, kept on whining.
“This was a sense of extortion,” he lamented of protesters whom he feared would annoy him if Chauvin had been acquitted. “I’m speaking the truth. If it didn’t go a certain way, there was going to be destruction. We know that. Why pretend otherwise? Come on.”
