On Monday, Fox News’ Greg Gutfeld blasted Democrats for dismissing the border crisis and tragedies that go along with it when their party holds political power.
Gutfeld made his fiery comments on Monday’s edition of “The Five.”
Gutfeld argued that the same Democrats who made a lot of noise over the border crisis when Donald Trump was still president, are now ignoring a crisis that is still with us, including the increase in border crossings.

Dana Perino: ‘The White House Is Trying To Maintain That Everything Is Getting Better. Does It Look Like It?’
Host Dana Perino opened the segment by showing dozens of illegal immigrants crossing the border.
Dana Perino noted that despite the fact that President Joe Biden was polling well in some areas, when it came to his administration’s efforts to tackle the illegal immigration problem, 53% disapproved.
Perino said, “The White House is trying to maintain that everything is getting better. Does it look like it?”

Gutfeld: ‘It Happens Every Day’
Co-host Juan Williams claimed things were getting better on the border, and said this is not a new problem as it has been happening for many years.
“This is like a daily activity throughout the last 100 years,” Williams said. “I don’t know that there is anything new here except that there was a video there and it is fitting in with all the people who want to beat on Biden about immigration.”
“The video wasn’t created for hysteria,” Perino pushed back.
Gutfeld wasn’t having any of it.
“The saddest thing about that argument is that we’ve heard this argument every single day,” Gutfeld said. “It happens every day. It happens every day.”

Gutfeld then sarcastically criticized Democrats for being so dismissive toward the issue.
“Sure, a few kids drown,” he said. “Some get raped, right? But it happens every day. It’s been happening for 100 years!”
“It was odd that when it was happening under Trump, though, it mattered,” Gutfeld noted. “It was the immoral work of a racist man supported by racist supporters.”
He added, “But now when there is a Democrat, it’s like oh, whoa! This stuff happens all the time. Relax, everybody.”
