Escalating Middle East tensions were no match for Fox News host Greg Gutfeld’s “keep it simple” strategy on dealing with continued terrorist threats.
“Kill the piece of sh*t.”

Preceded by Hamas and Hezbollah hypemen, the latter’s Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah made an address Friday praising the former group for its attacks on Israel. Reportedly speaking from Lebanon, the leader praised Hamas for the “right, wise, and just” slaughter of more than 1,400 people before warning over the lasting counteroffensive and United States involvement.
“What the Israelis do to Lebanon will also determine how we will act. All options are on the table on the Lebanese front,” said Nasrallah who had also remarked, “Some say I’m going to announce that we have entered the battle. We already entered the battle on Oct. 8.”
Following opinions from fellow “The Five” co-hosts, Gutfeld was prompted by Dana Perino to offer his take on the terrorist’s comments.
“I don’t feel that anybody needs to hear from him, whether it’s news or not. Kill the piece of sh*t. That’s the only way,” he expressed, earning a level of agreement from Perino who said, “Well, I’m not against that either.”
Further explaining his position, Gutfeld indicated that it was, in part, for the audience’s sake. “How should the viewer digest this overwhelming and relentless barrage of news about one horrible, despicable act? You have to keep it simple.
“This is to help the viewer. Do not let the media confuse or complicate what is a very, very simple story: A despicable act took place that requires decisive action. That’s the end of the story. And we need to be reminded of that every single day,” the co-host asserted. “This attack on Oct. 7 crossed the line that exists apart from anything before it. So, context is no excuse for terror.”
“History is no excuse for terror,” added Gutfeld.
“The media has become contaminated. There is no proportion — think of the catchphrases you’re hearing — there is no proportionality when it comes to mutilating children and raping women in masses, which is what the other side keeps saying,” he continued before going on to suggest, “The goal here, by using those phrases, is to preserve the free punch against Israel.”
The top-rated late-night host didn’t halt his criticism of corporate media’s coverage there as he went on to further slam them for essentially knowing nothing about the most pressing matters.
“If you look at all the major problems today, they all have one thing in common. The journalists don’t understand it. If you talk about the debt, if you talk about the Middle East, if you talk about the border, if you talk about crime, seems like all of these issues are just way too hard for them to understand. So instead what they do is they overcomplicate it, because that’s their job,” he said.
After reiterating that the acts of evil committed on Oct. 7 remained the focus of the response, Gutfeld closed with a turn to pro-Hamas sympathizers in the United States with a dismissive attitude.
“All this other stuff — if a protester is yelling at you on the street, you can say, ‘I don’t care, that’s not my issue. Have a lousy day.'”
