Fox News panelists get into heated exchange after Cohen testimony: ‘I’m gonna throw you off the set’


Fox News commentators Greg Gutfeld and Juan Williams got into a heated exchange Wednesday after Michael Cohen’s testimony to a House committee, with Gutfeld threatening to throw Williams “off the set.”

The two men started trading verbal jabs on the Fox News show “The Five” when Williams accused Gutfeld of being “so deep in the bunker,” apparently a reference to Gutfeld’s support of President TrumpDonald TrumpTexas announces election audit in four counties after Trump demand Schumer sets Monday showdown on debt ceiling-government funding bill Pennsylvania AG sues to block GOP subpoenas in election probe MORE.

Cohen, Trump's former attorney, made damaging allegations against Trump in his testimony on Wednesday before the House Oversight and Reform Committee.

“Oh, shut up, Juan! I’m in nobody’s bunker. Enough with your bunker. I’m trying to be polite to somebody on the panel, Juan, which you won’t do,” Gutfeld responded, arguing that he was trying to give another panelist the chance to talk when he was interrupted by Williams. 

Moments later, host Jesse Watters said Cohen provided “no documentation, no corroboration, no witnesses of any Russian collusion, any Trump Tower advanced knowledge” during his hearing.

Williams responded by bringing up details about Roger StoneRoger Jason StoneBannon says he discussed how to 'kill this administration in the crib' with Trump before Jan. 6 Roger Stone served with Capitol riot lawsuit during radio interview Lawyer for 17 Jan. 6 defendants says he's been released from hospital MORE and Donald Trump Jr.Don TrumpHow Trump uses fundraising emails to remain undisputed leader of the GOP Donald Trump Jr. joins Cameo Book claims Trump family members were 'inappropriately' close with Secret Service agents MORE that Cohen laid out during his testimony and said Waters is “so blind because you, like Greg, are deep in the bunker.”

Gutfeld immediately fired back, saying, “If you say that again, I’m going to throw you off the set. You know what the bunker means? What you’re intimating is that — who’s in the bunker, Adolf Hitler, correct?”

“No, I was not!” Williams said, arguing Gutfeld was “so far off” and “in a weak position.”

Watters put an end to the back-and-forth by asking another panelist for comment on the Cohen hearing.
