Emotions ran high on both sides of the aisle after Michael Cohen's testimony before the House Oversight Committee yesterday.
Perhaps nowhere more so than Fox News' New York City studios when a verbal altercation between liberal commentator Juan Williams and conservative pundit Greg Gutfeld nearly came to blows.
Per Hot Air:
This is the closest the Fox News set has come to actual violence since the time Hannity pulled a gun on Juan. How has this guy survived this long?
Two clips here from “The Five” plus one of Cohen’s closing statement today, which contained its own intimation of violence: “Given my experience working for Mr. Trump, I fear that if he loses the election in 2020, that there will never be a peaceful transition of power.” He’s overstating that; it’s not like Trump will deploy the military if he loses. But there’s literally no scenario in which he’ll graciously accept defeat, even if he loses by 10 million votes. Some sort of fraud and chicanery will be alleged to explain it. “That’s what they did to me with the Russia probe,” he’ll say of Democrats’ reaction to his victory over Hillary in 2016. Where things go from there, God only knows. Hopefully, they won’t get too hairy.
