Where we watch MSNBC’s The Cycle and Fox News’ The Five so you don’t have to…
After a brief stay in Washington on Tuesday to celebrate the upcoming release of his new book, The Five‘s Greg Gutfeld returned to New York City yesterday. On the show, he confessed to having too much fun in D.C.
While discussing congressional hearings regarding last month’s attack on a U.S. embassy in Libya, Gutfeld said the Obama administration is “spinning more tails than a tuxedo factory.”
After a short but awkward silence, Gutfeld graded his joke a “B.”
“That was okay,” co-host Dana Perino said. “And that’s being generous,” bleated other co-host Bob Beckel.
Gutfeld explained the lackluster joke. “I was off yesterday. I have a little bit of a hangover,” he said. Viewers across the country might have thought this in itself was a joke. But during an interview with FishbowlDC on Tuesday, Gutfeld said at one point he was “drawing a blank” because he had previously had “four wines.”
That interview took place at 7:30 p.m.
