Juan Williams, the Fox News host who co-anchors the popular show The Five, is facing major backlash after he was caught making a disparaging remark about President Donald Trump on live TV. Williams, who is a noted Democrat, claimed he agreed with a rogue GOP congressman’s assessment that it was “time to impeach this idiot.” Well, immediately Williams got torched. You’ll love this.
Fox News’ contributor Juan Williams faced backlash from the other hosts on The Five Tuesday, after calling President Donald Trump an “idiot.”
They were discussing Trump’s latest jabs at Democratic presidential candidate and former Vice President Joe Biden when Williams turned the conversation to Republican Michigan Rep. Justin Amash, who became the first GOP member to back impeachment, last weekend.
“I think if we invited Donald Trump to the table to play poker with The Five, I’d take his money big time,” Williams stated. “It’s like a poker player and he keeps blinking. He’s like, ‘I know what’s going on.’ He thinks Joe Biden is a threat in Pennsylvania. That’s why he’s attacking Joe Biden like that. He’s not attacking Kamala Harris. He’s not going after anybody else. He’s going after Joe Biden, he’s going after the media sometimes.”
He went on, “He’s going after Justin Amash. Why? There’s a Republican whose finally saying it’s time to impeach this idiot. Yes, this is no coincidence.”
“Whoa,” Dana Perino responded immediately.
“He’s not an idiot, Juan,” Jesse Watters pushed back. “He’s the President of the United States.”
Greg Gutfeld chimed in attempting to stop the awkward situation. He began to criticize Amash for failing to provide any evidence to back up his claim that Trump committed impeachable offenses.
Maybe we shouldn’t be too surprised that Juan Williams believes Trump is an “idiot” who should be “impeached.” The 65-year-old leftist still believes the president colluded with Russians and wrote an article claiming if Trump loses in 2020 he will refuse to go.
“Trump has succeeded in using social media to open a Pandora’s Box of racism, hatred, paranoia, conspiracy-mongering, and rejection of the legitimacy of major American institutions, from the courts to the CIA,” wrote Williams. “It is no longer outside the realm of possibility that Trump could refuse to leave if he loses the 2020 election. And if he does not accept an election defeat — a scenario he threatened in 2016 — he will have a virtual army on social media to defend him.”
Wow, that’s really rich coming from the guy who backed Hillary Clinton who is still running around the country spreading salacious conspiracies about the 2016 election. Hillary and her cohorts like Williams are the ones who remain convinced Trump didn’t win the 2016 election square and fair.
Isn’t that exactly how these rabid leftists roll? They accuse you of the very thing they are doing. Well, Americans are outraged at Williams. We all know if anyone called Barack Obama “an idiot” on live TV with Juan present, he would have gone nuts.
“This guy has never had an original thought and I wonder why he is even on fox! Get someone the can represent the left with class! No free rides!” tweeted Robert Grigsby.

“The lack of respect for the President of our Country is not a joke! You could agree or disagree with him but you have to respect the office of the President,” tweeted Remedios Diaz.

“I used to like Juan Williams, but he has totally flipped his lid. He shows how ridiculous and insane the liberals have become. He has totally spoiled The Five for me. Other liberals stand in for him and they don’t sound so crazy. Time for Juan to take a break,” tweeted Joanne Whitworth.

Juan Williams has drunk the Democrats’ kool-aid. He has lost all perspective and rational thought. He used to be a centrist Democrat. Now that the Democrats have moved so far to the left, Williams has decided to toe the line. And he is angry. Poor Juan sees the writing on the wall. The 65-year-old Democrat knows the DOJ is now investigating his beloved Obama administration’s role in attempting a soft coup against Trump.
He keeps trying to re-hash the Mueller investigation, and that’s over. Now, he is parroting his cohorts on MSNBC and CNN and Americans who watch Fox News aren’t buying it. Maybe it’s time Juan Williams hangs it up, or get a job reporting fake news on one of those idiotic Trump-hating networks.
