The “Gutfeld!” gang is the political polar opposite of the senator, who calls himself a socialist. Bernie SandersBut the Fox News late-night panel generally praised the Vermont congressman’s handling of a near-fight at the U.S. Capitol.
When Oklahoma Sen. Mark Wayne Mullin launched into a brawl with Teamsters President Sean O’Brien during a heated hearing, San Des holds the gavel. The 82-year-old used only his voice to force a halt to the escalating tough rhetoric. The sound stopped two tough-talking competitors from fighting.
“You’re going to love old Sanders!” host Greg Gutfield “He would have been a great president.” No irony.
“He won the battle!” responded regular panelist Kate Timpf. “You know what’s crazy? … Bernie Sanders won the battle, but he didn’t stand up, he didn’t even Not looking up, okay? He didn’t even break a sweat.”
Actress and comedian Chandler Juliet, a guest panelist on Wednesday night’s show, called the exchange “funny” and gave all the credit to Sanders: “Bernie really shut it down ”
The only dissent came from “Gutfeld!” regular Tyrus, a former professional wrestler himself, who said Saunders should let them duel.
