GREG GUTFELD (CO-HOST): I just wanted to hear you defend this. Because I've heard people defend him about making fun of a disability, making fun of John McCain, making fun of women, a woman's face, I wanted to hear somebody defend this as well. Because it never ends. No one will ever stop defending the crass stuff he says. By the way, I haven't used that word since I was seven years old. I don't understand this. And I also, I don't understand the comment about the bathroom. And I'm sick of hearing people defend this stuff. By the way, we're not even allowed to use the word that he said, but somehow we're going to have him on our network all the time. Meanwhile, we treat our employees far differently than that.

I want somebody who can beat Hillary. I don't think an impulsive leader is going to beat Hillary.
