GREG GUTFELD (HOST): I'm going to defend Chris Cuomo -- saying this knowing that if a Fox anchor had been doing this, CNN would demand that scalp until he looked like Brian Stelter. You notice that Stelter is not defending him because Stelter thinks he's going to get the 9:00, fat chance, literally.
My theory is, as long as Joy Reid is employed, no one should ever be fired. Cuomo is a pompous, self-involved ass, that's why we love him. You get rid of him, I lose at least 3 to 5 segments a week of fun on my show. I am so pro-Cuomo, I'm going out there to protest for him, I want him to keep his job.
But -- so, watching MSNBC talk about him being fired, that's rich, that's too much. Because Cuomo isn't a racist. Reid is a bona fide, out of the closet bigot, who repeatedly uses the word "white" as a derogatory adjective when she talks about "white tears" or "white people." It's as though they are inferior. This is 2021, and there is a major network -- MSNBC is kind of a major network -- where they employ a racist in primetime who literally is derogatory towards an entire race. And she says the words out loud. Cuomo is nothing like that. So until she's gone, I'm on team Cuomo.
