Fox News contributor Juan Williams claimed on Friday that no commander-in-chief has ever been better than President Barack Obama in terms of showing his support for the U.S. military. The opinion caused the panel on “The Five” to erupt in disagreement.
Williams’ remarks came after actress Stacey Dash said the president of the United States should be able to unite the country, something she doesn’t feel Obama has done.
“Let me just say, when it comes to our military, I don’t think there’s any president who has expressed himself better than President Obama in terms of support of our military,” Williams said.
Watters disagreed immediately, noting, “Fifteen percent of the military approves of the president! Just 15 percent.”
“That’s politics,” Williams argued.
“You couldn’t be more wrong,” co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle said.
Dash then muttered in apparent disbelief at Williams’ comments, “I’m in a different stratosphere.”
