Fox News commentators Greg Gutfeld and Juan Williams got into a heated exchange Wednesday after Michael Cohen’s testimony to a committee committee, with Gutfeld threatening to throw Williams “off the set.”
The two men started trading verbal jabs on the Fox News show “The Five” when Williams accused Gutfeld of being “so deep in the bunker,” apparently a reference to Gutfeld’s support of President TrumpDonald John TrumpREAD: Cohen testimony alleges Trump knew Stone talked with WikiLeaks about DNC emails Trump urges North Korea to denuclearize ahead of summit Venezuela’s Maduro says he fears ‘bad’ people around Trump MORE.
Cohen, Trump’s former attorney, made damaging allegations against Trump in his testimony on Wednesday.
“Oh, shut up, Juan! I’m in nobody’s bunker. Enough with your bunker. I’m trying to be polite to somebody on the panel, Juan, which you won’t do,” Gutfeld responded, arguing that he was trying to give another panelist the chance to talk when he interrupted Williams.
Moments later, host Jesse Waters said Cohen provided “no documentation, no corroboration, no witnesses of any Russian collusion, any Trump Tower advanced knowledge” during his hearing.

Gutfeld immediately fired back, saying, “If you say that again, I’m going to throw you off the set. You know what the bunker means? What you’re intimating is that––who’s in the bunker, Adolf Hitler, correct?”
“No, I was not!” Williams said, arguing Gutfeld was “so far off” and “in a weak position.”
Waters put an end to the back-and-forth by asking another panelist for comment on the Cohen hearing.
