Fox Host Craves American Toughness So Much She Wants Putin In Charge

Fox News host Kimberly Guilfoyle longingly wished Tuesday that Vladimir Putin or Benjamin Netanyahu could rule the United States, even if just for 48 hours, to get things “done right.”

Guilfoyle rhapsodized on tough or authoritarian leadership during a discussion about the terrorist group ISIS on Tuesday’s episode of “The Five.” Responding to co-host Greg Gutfeld’s commentary on how President Barack Obama is dealing with ISIS, Guilfoyle said:

“Can I just make a special request in the magic lamp? Can we get like Netanyahu, or like Putin in for 48 hours, you know, head of the United States?”

Guilfoyle finished her genie-lamp appeal by adding:

“I don’t know. I just want somebody to get in here and get it done right so that Americans don’t have to worry and wake up in the morning fearful of a group that’s murderous and horrific like ISIS.”
