GREG GUTFELD (CO-HOST): I'm starting to change my mind on this. I want it to go on forever. It's like an extra-inning game that, like, when it's on you go, is that the 22nd inning? You want it to go to 27, you want it to go to -- how long can this go? It's like a horrifying spectacle, but it's also hypnotic. And everybody says, oh, you know -- what is it? -- democracy is messy. Oh, stop it. Everybody knows this is just a pain.

But I love how the Democrats act like this is some kind of catastrophe. Maybe, but it's self-contained, right? It's self-contained. It's not affecting Americans, you know, the way Afghanistan or the border or inflation. So at least when Republicans have a firing squad, it's circular, but the Democrats shoot everybody.


JESSE WATTERS (CO-HOST): I don't know if he's dead yet, but he's close, because I've never seen a situation where someone takes someone hostage and their main demand is, I want the hostage dead. So the hostage has to commit suicide. I don't -- I don't know how -- does he survive? Is someone else going to go?
