Sparks fly on ‘The Five’ as Tarlov melts down over ‘craven lies’ about Biden’s Maui response

President Joe Biden’s response to the deadly wildfires on the Hawaiian island of Maui has been an unmitigated disaster and the regime’s media mouthpieces are scrambling to defend him with Fox News’ Jessica Tarlov melting down over criticism of his latest public relations fiasco.

Sparks flew on Tuesday’s edition of “The Five” when the show’s liberal co-host clashed with Jesse Watters over what she called “craven lies” about the geriatric career politician whose insensitive remarks likening the Maui inferno to a small but grossly exaggerated fire in his home kitchen sparked outrage.

Watters scorched Biden for his insensitive comments, yukking it up, and appearing to nod off during a memorial event for the victims and then flying back to his Lake Tahoe vacation as “abysmal” and “abhorrent” and that the president “can not relate to human beings at all.”

“He’s done this his entire career, it’s not empathy when you make up a lie in order in order to feel like you’re a part of someone else’s misery,” he said during his extended critique of Biden’s visit to Maui.

“I can’t buy into the idea that Joe Biden has been conning the American public for five decades,” Tarlov said when it was her turn to speak, going to bat for dear leader.

“The media has,” said co-host Greg Gutfeld.

“But people listen to him. He’s been on debate stages. He’s gotten elected and reelected and reelected and reelected and people really like him. That’s why they supported him. That’s why he won in 2020 because he was someone who was connecting with people,” Tarlov continued, adding, “He was the guy talking to the little kid with a stutter, right, about how he grew up and how he got past that and went on to be running for president and then eventually won. So I’ll give you that that was a bad comparison, but there have been so many craven lies told about the timeline of the response on this.”

“Jesse just said his first comments were, ‘no comment,’ which is categorically untrue,” she continued. “So that was on August 13th. The wildfires started on August 8th, on August 10th that’s when a major disaster declaration occurred. He got the call, the request from Hawaii to do that. It took him just 63 minutes to sign that.”

“He signed a piece of paper, I’m talking about significant public comments,” Watters shot back as Tarlov continued with her partisan defense of Biden.

“And then later that day, he was in Utah talking about something else. And he opened up by commenting on what was going on in Hawaii and how devastating it was,” she continued. “Listen to what the governor of Hawaii, Josh Green, said, ‘Within six hours, the administration met our needs with federal movement. I don’t think that’s ever happened before.’ The Maui County mayor: ‘I wanted to say how our response to the president has been he called me, I asked for the help that we needed. And within two hours, one of his cabinet members called me to answer my question. We’ve been getting all the help that we need.’”

Gutfeld interjected, “That’s the Maui mayor just pointing that out.”

“And you don’t think at a time when there are hundreds of people dead and there’s another thousand people that are missing that the Maui mayor wouldn’t have said Joe Biden is lying to you,” Tarlov snapped.

“Oh, you got to be nice. You got to be nice. You have to be nice because you’re hoping for something,” Gutfeld said, suggesting that the mayor wasn’t about to call Biden out if he wanted help.

Tarlov’s excuse-making for Biden didn’t go over well with Judge Jeanine Pirro who brought her gavel down on the B.S. in a fiery rant that stole the segment and silenced her loopy leftist co-host.

“This guy has been lying from the moment he came onto the political scene,” she said. “He has a lack of empathy, he is egocentric, he’s got a condescending smirk whenever anybody asked him a question from the press. He’s lying and he’s narcissistic, and you know what? He’s not trying to make them feel like he’s part of their misery, he’s a narcissist and an egomaniac who is trying to make it about himself.”
