Juan Williams was called out by a couple of his co-hosts on The Five this week for calling Trump an idiot on the air.
It’s not the first time Williams has said something obnoxious about the president and it won’t be the last.
The Daily Caller reports:
JUAN WILLIAMS FACES BACKLASH FOR CALLING TRUMP AN ‘IDIOT’
Fox News’ contributor Juan Williams faced backlash from the other hosts on The Five Tuesday, after calling President Donald Trump an “idiot.”
They were discussing Trump’s latest jabs at Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden when Williams turned to conversation to Republican Michigan Rep. Justin Amash, who became the first GOP member to back impeachment, last weekend.
“I think if we invited Donald Trump to the table to play poker with The Five, I’d take his money big time,” Williams stated. “It’s like a poker player and he keeps blinking. He’s like, ‘I know what’s going on.’
He thinks Joe Biden is a threat in Pennsylvania. That’s why he’s attacking Joe Biden like that. He’s not attacking Kamala Harris. He’s not going after anybody else. He’s going after Joe Biden, he’s going after the media sometimes.”
He went on, “He’s going after Justin Amash. Why? There’s a Republican whose finally saying it’s time to impeach this idiot. Yes, this is no coincidence.”
“Whoa,” Dana Perino responded immediately.
“He’s not an idiot, Juan,” Jesse Watters pushed back. “He’s the president of the United States.”
Watch the video:
Williams frequently makes his Trump Derangement Syndrome the subject of his columns.
Here’s a recent example from The Hill:
The new abnormal
Am I the only one who thinks we hit bottom last week when President Trump announced plans to celebrate himself with a July Fourth speech and political rally at the Lincoln Memorial while pushing the annual fireworks to a new location?
If this happens, Independence Day will no longer be about America — it will be about Trump.
At a time of tremendous political polarization, why take away the unifying experience of the Fourth of July? Why drive us — the American people — farther apart?
That’s just typical for the left.
Say inflammatory things about Trump and then blame Trump for dividing people.
