The old white conservative men on Fox News are good for certain things, like mowing lawns and getting other old white conservative men to watch them on television.
They are not, however, good at comedy. Witness human slimeballs Greg Gutfeld and Eric Bolling on The Five making truly hilarious gags out of the first female pilot in the United Arab Emirates’ Air Force, Maj. Mariam Al Mansouri, who reportedly led a team in the airstrikes against ISIS in Syria.
Gutfeld: “The problem is, after she bombed it, she couldn’t park it.”
Gutfeld: I salute her.
Bolling: Would that be considered boobs on the ground or no?
Bob Beckel: Did you just say what I thought you said?
A note to the producers responsible for the show: Your target audience of old, angry white people is dying off, so it’s probably best not to offend whatever’s left of your female audience. Also, when Bob Beckel of all people is aghast at something another host said, you have some serious problems.
