Fox News host Greg Gutfeld said on The Five that prominent 2020 presidential candidatesSens. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) look “small” compared to President Donald Trump.
“Trump makes all these candidates look like… runner-ups at ‘The Bachelor,’ right? They seem so much smaller,” Gutfeld said. “You know, you can hate Trump all you want, but you can’t replace America’s bad boy.”
He said that Trump “sucks all the oxygen out of the room” and that the press helps him to do that. As a result, some 2020 Democrat candidates are trying to use Trump’s tactics and attitude themselves, but they’re not really good at it and it’s not working.
Gutfeld also accused the press of wanting to pick the Democrat candidate instead of the people. “[The media wants] to anoint the person who’s going to win and that’s what they do,” hesaid. “They don’t think Sanders is going to win.”
Co-host Juan Williams said that he thinks it will be different when the nominee is chosen, pointing out that overall fundraising is about even and Democrats seem “fired up to take out Trump.”
