Greg Gutfeld on Trump's Genius, Fox News After Sex Scandals, and the Power of Punk

The host of The Greg Gutfeld Show, co-host of The Five, and creator of the late Red Eye is having a hell of a time watching his media peers wet themselves.


As the eponymous host of The Greg Gutfeld Show, which airs Saturday evenings on Fox News, as co-host of the network's hugely popular afternoon talk show The Five, and as the creator of the now-defunct path-breaking late-night show Red Eye, Greg Gutfeld is one of the most ubiquitous presences on cable news.

He's also one of the sharpest and funniest. A prolific writer and former editor of Maxim and Stuff, Gutfeld has a new book out, The Gutfeld Monologues: Classic Rants from The Five, which features annotations and corrections by the author of past mistakes.

I sat down with the libertarian-leaning conservative to talk about his book, the origins and persistence of punk rock attitudes, the exaggerated death of print media, and just how great it would be if Rosie O'Donnell challenged Donald Trump in the 2020 election.
