From the June 14 edition of Fox News' The Five:

DANA PERINO (CO-HOST): I actually think that online in particular this is spreading quite rapidly.

GREG GUTFELD (CO-HOST): But they’re using false pictures.

PERINO: I agree.

[…]

JESSE WATTERS (CO-HOST): You don’t know if they’re being trafficked so you want to separate them, they’re trying to do what’s best for this kids. Also deter people from bringing people across the border. You know what’s a great deterrent? You never have to separate a family at the border. A wall, how about just building a wall, there won't be people coming across, you won’t have to separate anybody. This guy is an emotional wreck. He embarrassed himself. He doesn't belong in that room. It’s like Acosta, I don’t care if you have opinions like that, be an analyst. Go debate it on CNN in prime time. But don’t pretend to be a non-partisan correspondent and then melt down like that and embarrass your integrity. These people don't belong there. They are jokes. They need to start ripping press passes away. If you’re going to act like a wild animal, you don’t belong there.
