Gutfeld on New Cohen Allegation: Recurring 'Breaking' Reports on Trump 'Like Fred Sanford's Heart Attack'

Sunday 06:03 GMT

Greg Gutfeld said some mainstream media reports on "breaking news" stories based on anonymous sources are like how Fred Sanford in "Sanford & Son" would repeatedly worry about having a heart attack. Sanford, played by Redd Foxx, would often exclaim "I'm coming, Elizabeth!" and clutch his heart during the show, predicting he would soon die of a heart attack and join his late wife in heaven.

"It's one of those 'what if' stories," Gutfeld said, adding that the "business model" for much of the mainstream media is like "Fred Sanford from 'Sanford & Son'.". "Every week, he was certain he was going to have a massive heart attack. And then, he'd be there next week, because people would forget about it," Gutfeld said, likening the recurring gag to how often such stories pop up about Trump.
