‘They Can’t Even Change Their G**damn Behavior’: Greg Gutfeld Goes OFF On Lawmakers For Slow Walking Coronavirus Bill

The Republican-controlled Senate passed the largest rescue package in modern history on Wednesday to alleviate economic pressure caused by the coronavirus.

By a vote of 96-0, the Senate passed a massive $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus compromise package, which will now be sent to the Democratic-controlled House of Representatives.

But hours before the Senate passed the stimulus bill on Wednesday, Fox News host Greg Gutfeld excoriated House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Democrats for holding up the coronavirus relief package.

After Senate Republicans and Democrats reached an agreement on the bill’s contents, Pelosi delayed House passage until Thursday, claiming to want to “review the final provisions and legislative text of the agreement to determine a course of action.”

Prior to the Senate’s deal, House Democrats wrote their own version that included several “woke” provisions that had nothing to do with immediate coronavirus relief.

Asked by co-host Dana Perino for his thoughts, Gutfeld began with Democrats’ objection to any sort of corporate relief.

“In order for people keep that thought in their head, they have to pretend that corporations are run by some kind of inanimate object,” Gutfeld said. “Corporations are made up of people. The people have families. Families consist of children. People need the money so they can continue living and of course pay their rent. I disagree. You don’t have to get this bill to be perfect. We don’t have the luxury of perfection right now. We have to get something through that will help people.”

“When you see people in disasters who take advantage of those, those earthquakes or floods, they are called looters,” he continued. “And the fiends who are sneaking stuff into this relief package or trying to slow it down, they’re looters too, because they are a hurting relief package that is there for millions and millions of people, and the government is not helping by wasting our time.”

Asking sardonically what “these people do for a living,” Gutfeld added, “For the past two weeks, we have sacrificed our freedoms so that we can beat this virus. And they can’t even stop acting like politicians with a metaphorical gun to their heads, i.e., a virus in an emergency situation. They can’t even change their godd*mn behavior. It is absolutely disgusting!”

After co-host Jesse Watters took his turn criticizing lawmakers, Gutfeld jumped in to apologize for his on-air language.

“Excuse me, sorry, I just want to apologize for swearing a few minutes ago. I lost my cool,” he said.

“I didn’t even hear it,” Watters joked.

WATCH:

Beyond Pelosi’s antics and refusal to pass the bill immediately, the historic $2 trillion coronavirus bill will bring relief to individuals, small businesses, and larger corporations.

The relief package also includes thousands of dollars in direct payments to most Americans — millions of whom face unemployment related to the spread of the virus — as well as a $500 billion loan fund for large corporations and a $367 billion loan program for small businesses.

The Senate bill also omits many — though not all — items from House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s version of the legislation that Republicans had called wasteful or irrelevant, including climate-change-related emissions restrictions for airlines and various diversity-related provisions.

The bill is expected to pass in the House on Friday.

The bipartisan breakthrough in the Senate capped days of heated negotiations after Pelosi flew into D.C. last weekend and tried slipping in a slew of unnecessary, left-wing proposals.

The move came after Democrats voted against the bill three times in an attempt to include several radical policies they wanted, such as ballot harvesting and amnesty for DACA illegal aliens.
