Fox News host Greg Gutfeld slammed President Joe Biden for claiming during his State of the Union speech that he supported “funding” the police.

During a segment on “The Five,” Gutfeld and the panel took turns ripping into Biden for claiming that he and the Democrats support law enforcement.

“He said that after the — you know, I’m not going to let the media strategy of contrasting The Squad with Joe Biden to somehow reconstitute the myth of his moderation. Right?” Gutfeld began.

“You’ve got to give credit to The Squad, because they are stupid, they’re wrong, they’re unforgivable, but at least they’re consistent to their principles. This jackass didn’t do a thing when cops were being killed, when businesses were being burned. He hid in his basement. And only when it became politically expedient, when he was worried about losing an election, and now when an election is coming up, all of a sudden he is backing the blue because he felt it was better, at the time, to embrace the woke orthodoxy that put BLM above law enforcement. That’s what he did,” he added.

“So I’m sorry, when I see CNN’s recently purchased conservatives, you know, those principled few supporting, ‘Oh, isn’t this great? Look at him. Such a good thing…’ — you’re an idiot, because this guy was nowhere to be found. Lastly, the thing that gets me bad — that gets me crazy, I know a lot of people are pissed off about these two Republicans that heckled. That’s nothing compared to this cosplay that you see, stand up and applaud, sit down. No matter how stupid Biden says something, people have to applaud. This is kabuki applause line theater, right, and we’re expecting as idiot Americans to go, ‘Oh, wow, everything coming out of his mouth is somehow majestic and moral and meaningful.’ Of course not!” he declared.

“And by the way, both sides do this. Right? But for some reason, it’s more disgusting. Heckling is bad, but heckling is real. What we watched there was fake. And for anybody applauding him supporting law enforcement, you are an idiot. Sorry,” Gutfeld concluded.

Gutfeld also recently slammed some Democrat governors for finally lifting vaccine and mask mandates.

Now that Democrats are in serious trouble politically heading into November’s midterm elections, they are shifting their messaging on COVID.

Gutfeld also ripped Democratic lawmakers and their allies in the mainstream media for trying to claim that the Biden administration deserves credit.

Below is a partial transcript:

GUTFELD: So I saw something weird last night, and for once it wasn’t in the mirror above my bed after a night of heavy drinking. I turned on CNN and there I saw John King going through some pretty bad numbers for the president, and none of them even involved his IQ.

JOHN KING: Look at how bad these numbers are for the president. Only four in 10 Americans, 41 percent at the moment, approve of his job performance. Nearly six in 10 — 58 percent — disapprove. That’s a tough number early in a midterm election year for the president of the United States. Now, why is this happening? This is fascinating. We asked people, “What has President Biden done for you that you approve of?” Fifty-six percent of Americans, nearly six in 10 Americans, that means a decent amount of Democrats said, “Nothing.” They disapprove of everything that has happened.

GUTFELD: So that’s amazing. You know, if you’re quiet enough, you can hear Jimmy Carter letting out a sigh of relief because that’s a lot of people who say Joe’s done nothing for them, and that’s coming from CNN, so I would double it.

I take everything I get from CNN and double it, including Brian Stelter’s BMI. Of course, CNN defended Joe, pointing out that he passed that infrastructure plan. And King worries that the good stuff Joe didn’t, did — is really sinking in?

Where is this good stuff that we were promised? In the same poll about COVID, another 60 percent said they were angry and 75 percent were burned out… Nice try. You see what’s happening. As the pandemic comes to a close, they want credit for closing it.
