Greg Gutfeld, co-host of Fox News' "The Five," called CNN's Brian Stelter a "hairless hall monitor" and a "turgid tattletale" over his concern about Republican President Donald Trump's tweet featuring a video depicting Trump body-slamming an opponent with a CNN logo for a head.
"The Five" showed a video of a concerned Stelter saying CNN would "keep asking" Twitter if Trump's post violated the social media outfit's terms of service.
"He's like the student who reminds the teacher that she forgot to assign homework or the dorm RA who calls security 'cause you're having too much fun and he wasn't invited," Gutfeld said of Stelter on Monday's program.
"CNN actually issued a statement about this video saying it incites violence — as if it were a Shakespearean adaptation where the president's being murdered," Gutfeld added mockingly, referring to the controversial production of "Julius Caesar" in which the assassinated protagonist looks like Trump. "Fareed Zakaria of CNN called that a masterpiece."
Gutfeld also declared that CNN was "taken in again" and apparently didn't compute that professional wrestling isn't real, which means Trump's tweeted video is technically non-violent.
"What is it with CNN? Can't they tell real from unreal?" Gutfeld asked. "The fight's as phony as the Russian collusion story."
Gutfeld noted that CNN can't seem to take a joke.
“You know what I did when I first saw the tweet?" he asked. "I laughed. I showed to to my brother-in-law, who laughed. He showed it to his wife, she laughed. Then we had breakfast, because that’s what normal people do.”
