Gutfeld on buying Greenland


>>♪ ♪>>HERE’S A SENTENCE I THOUGHT I WOULD NEVER SAY: PRESIDENT TRUMP POSTPONED A TRIP TO DENMARK BECAUSE THE PRIME MINISTER WON’T SELL HIM GREENLAND. I AM OKAY ABOUT IT. IT’S A RAINY LITTLE MONARCHY WITH 100 ISLANDS. CANCELLING A MEETING WITH DENMARK IS LIKE BLOWING OFF LUNCH WITH THE 3rd COUSIN WHO WAXES HIS MUSTACHE. WHETHER IT’S GREENLAND, OMAR OR SLEEPY JOE, ALL YOU ARE WATCHING IS A SHOW. THEY ARE COMIC SIDEKICKS. TRUMP TURNED HIS PRESIDENCY INTO HIS DREAM JOB. A TALK SHOW ON WHEEL AND DOESN’T HAVE TO SPRING FOR THE BUDGET AND LIVES IN HIS OWN GREENROOM. THE MEDIA FOLLOWS LIKE GROUPIE. AND TRUMP CAN OFFER AN OPINION THAT FUELS THE NEXT EPISODE. IT’S GENIUS. THEN THE TWEET FROM TRUMP. THIS IS NOT JUST A PRESIDENCY, IT’S THE TRUMAN SHOW REDONE AS THE TRUMP SHOW WHICH IS GOOD BECAUSE TRUMP IS WAY FUNNIER THAN JIM CARREY. THE DANGEROUS IS FOLLOWING THE MEDIA’S LEAD AND GETTING OBSESSED WITH THIS. THEY REACT TO EVERY NEW PLOT TWIST AND THAT’S NOT HEALTHY. SIT BACK AND ENJOY THE SHOW. IT’S FUN UNTIL SOMEBODY LOSES AN I-LAND.>>I SEE WHAT YOU DID THERE.>>I THINK DENMARK IS PLAYING HARD TO GET. THEY WANT THE HIGHEST BID.>>LIKE ART OF THE DEAL.>>YES. [LAUGHING].>>I WOULD LIKE TO GO TO DENMARK. NEVER BEEN. REMEMBER IN ALL OF THESE THINGS, THE PRIME MINISTER HAS POLITICS TOO AND HAS TO DEAL WITH HER PRESS THAT IS NOT THE SAME. THE PRESIDENT DIDN’T EXPECT THIS TO LEAK. IT’S A POSSIBILITY. THEN IT LEAKS. NOW WE ARE IN A FIGHT WITH DENMARK?>>THIS IS LIKE TRUMP IN THE SENSE THAT HE ASKS QUESTIONS THEY WOULD ASK. DOES ANYBODY OWN THE MOON?>>WE DO.>>CAN I BUY EASTER ISLAND?>>I BET I COULD.>>EVERYTHING YOU TELL TRUMP IS A CONSIDERATION. HE WILL TALK ABOUT IT OPENING AND THIS IS SOMETHING WE CAN CONSIDER. THEY TALK ABOUT IT AND HE CHANGES HIS MIND. HE WILL TALK TO ANYONE ABOUT ANYTHING. I AM STILL ON MANIFEST DESTINY GREENLAND. EVERYONE SAYS GLOBAL WARMING IS CAUSING THINGS TO MELT. DENMARK, PUT IT TO A VOTE. THEY CAN DECIDE. ON A SERIOUS NOTE, IN 10 YEARS THE MEDIA WILL BE SAYING WHAT ARE WE DOING ABOUT THE CHINESE AND GREENLAND? THEY WANT TO MINE IN GREENLAND AND PUT A BUNCH OF AIRPORTS IN GLEAN LAND. — KOREAN LAND. — GREENLAND. CHINA IS ON A 100 YEAR PLAN AND CHINA IS ALREADY THERE. WE ARE PLAYING THE SHORT GAME AND THEY ARE PLAYING THE LONG GAME.>>WHAT ARE WE GOING TO DO ABOUT AFRICA AND BRAZIL?>>A NEW GREEN DEAL.>>I WAS STRUCK THE WAY HE DOES DIPLOMACY HE CALLED HER NASTY.>>HE CALLED A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT.>>I KNOW. I THOUGHT IT WAS A JOKE! HE CONFIRMS THE JOKE.>>IT’S NOT A JOKE.>>IF IT WAS JUST A PRIVATE DISCUSSION, WHY DID HE SAY, NO, I REALLY THINK THIS IS AN IDEA. HERE’S THE HISTORICAL BACKGROUND. IT WAS ABSURD. THEN HE SAID WHY ARE YOU CALLING IT ABSURD? THE PROBLEM IS WITH HIM AND NOT WITH THE PEOPLE IN DENMARK OR GREENLAND.>>[OVERLAPPING TALKING].>>YOU ARE HAVING A MENTAL BREAK DOWN. IT’S FUN.>>YOU THINK IT’S THE TRUMAN SHOW.>>YES.>>THE TRUMAN SHOW WOULD BE LIKE A COMEDY.>>THIS GUY IS SUPPOSED TO BE OUR PRESIDENT.>>EVERY SINGLE U.S. PRESIDENT WOULD ACQUIRE GREENLAND IF THEY HAD THE CHANCE. TWO PAST U.S. PRESIDENTS TRIED TO ACQUIRE GREENLAND. THAT’S NOT ABSURD. HE IS OPEN TO THIS. YOU KNOW WHO IS NASTY? THE DANISH LEADER WAS NASTY. ALL SHE HAD TO SAY WAS WE LOVE GREENLAND. I APPRECIATE THE FACT THAT THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES ALSO HAS LOVING FEELINGS TOWARDS THIS PART OF THE WORLD. MAYBE WE CAN DISCUSS IT WHEN WE HAVE THIS MEETING WHICH I EXPECT CAN GO GREAT TO SOLIDIFY U.S. AND DANISH RELATIONSHIPS. SHE RUDELY DISMISSED IT AS ABSURD.>>I WOULD USE IT TO EXTRACT CONCESSIONS FROM THE UNITED STATES. THEY ARE UNDER-BUDGET ON THEIR NATO DUES BY A COUPLE OF BILLION DOLLARS. STRING TRUMP ALONG.>>HEY, GREG.>>THERE ARE PEOPLE IN GREENLAND. SHE SAID YOU CAN’T BUY PEOPLE.>>[OVERLAPPING TALKING].>>[LAUGHING].>>THAT’S ABSURD.>>RUSSIA IS A HUGE THREAT BUT THE ACQUISITION OF GREENLAND WOULD DETER RUSSIA.>>YOU SHOULD BE THE NEXT AMBASSADOR TO GREENLAND OR THE GOVERNOR OF GREENLAND.>>YOU ARE TRYING TO GET ME OUT OF HERE?>>NO, THERE ARE DIPLOMAT SOLUTIONS.>>WE COULD CONSIDER ALL OPTIONS AND BUY AS MANY INTERESTING THINGS AS WE CAN.

  • Michael A. Willett says:

    Personally I think it’s a good idea. Denmark may not want to sell but it would be great for both countries especially for the people of Greenland. I’ve talked to friends in Mexico that have suggested militarily invading us and then immediately surrendering to become part of the USA. They’re only half joking.

  • Honestly, depending on how the territory is set up, I wouldn't be opposed to going there. The weather isn't a selling point, but honestly I'm sick of being part of a divided continent where I'm told to go back to Europe, even though my ancestors have been here since 1700.

  • Dems better watch it, you may see a shift in population. Alienated citizens are sick of the liberal agenda that calls for open borders and runs crime ridden cities. No one in California, no illegal immigrant or is going to get on a boat and go to Greenland.

  • Danish citizin here, the idea of buying greenland is absolutly absurd from a danish point of view. The roots between Denmark and greenland is very deep and it is important to understand this. It is seen as arrogant of trump to suggest to buy greenland in this day and time. When you understand this, you will understand why the danish PM used the word “absurd”.

  • Offended by the offer, hey thats how Denmark got Greenland right, they bought it. Lets trade, we will give up Puerto Rico for Greenland, that sounds like a deal.

  • Go back and look at US history. Most of this Country was bought from other countries. I would agree that annexing California from Mexico/Spain was a bad deal. We should demand our money back and let Mexico take it back!

  • Juan Williams is a CNN operative in FOX clothing..
    That aside, Hey Juan knucklehead, free advice- Land is the one thing they're not making any more.
    Buy it up while it's to be had.

  • Nigel Duncan-Adam says:

    Hey Juan you really think you can't buy people go south of the boarder you can buy a Child to bring across the border they cost about $800 you would know as you want open boarders and support people trafficking and drugs being brought in to the country.

  • Empty-headed Juan: when the chinese get their hooks into Greenland, & any other free land, who will they run to? Who will protect them? And who will they expect to pay for it??

  • if a large ill-behaved man came over to you and your lover and asked you if he could take her on a date, you would say: "that's absurd!". You see? basically the same thing… especially because, in both the real world and the given situation, it wouldn't even be the two guys' decision… it would be (Greenland)'s.

  • He wanted to buy Greenland and got his feelings hurt so now he isn't going. A child. He is a f'cking child. And how dare you compare this pathetic kumquat to Jim Carrey. You fool. You people are absolute morons.

  • Wow…Greg Gutfeld is super bitter. Think he's pissy now? Wait until after the election when the Americans finally have a chance to get reasonable gun control (that 92% of Republicans want), affordable health care, affordable housing, police reform, election reform and the infrastructure that they're never going to get under the GOP. If it makes him feel better, during the lame duck session, Republicans will scramble to pass "No one can have power but us" laws like they did in Michigan and Minnesota.

    Oh, come on, between this and Florida Republicans changing the laws to tell the voters to go F themselves after they voted to allowed felons to vote, you thought they cared about America? Stop it.

  • Vincent Blanchard says:

    Williams, you talk about Africa? Well pal, check your facts, China has been buying LOADS of land in Africa these past years, but of course you will never mention that. Russia took over Crimea for free, you will not talk about that either. So before you make a fool of yourself, check history. Buying territories has been part of history, moron. Did anybody ask Greenlanders if they would actually consider being part of America?

  • Btw people laughed when we bought Alaska for $106mil… we have made more than 150 BILLION on Alaskan oil.. y’all think that’s a good investment?

  • Patriot Retiree says:

    Liberal says you don't buy people while busily buying all the military aged men in the Middle East, North Africa, and Central America.

  • Dennis Pfeifer says:

    Trump needs to just give John (Tojo) Bolton a little more chain and he can take it for us. No need to pay for something when you can get it for free. Hell, Tojo's got 13 aircraft carrier groups and he can spare one to take Greenland for us.

  • Whites have no humanity, no sense of democracy and freedom sooner or later they will start insisting their right to own slaves and colonies again then will resume the slavery, will buying slaves from Africa and Asia again. And that will be the time we need to attack Pearl Harbor again.

  • Is there like this philosophy, where you can make the most mindless comments and people shrug their shoulders and it's ok?

    Talking about going back to the "good ole days", are you people mental?

    Yep, slavery is ok…women's rights, why?…everyone that used to have a musket can now own their own personal cache equaling all the firepower of the Revolutionary war?

    What is wrong with you folks, has there been some hidden medical procedure done that just rips away an ability for rational and cognitive function?

    Anyways, I'll be glad to see when "Alies muppets" finally becomes a footnote discovered in a worn and tattered article found in a discarded urinal backstop, "Rhinos and crypto-fascism fight the tide of history".

    And that will be their legacy, golden showers all the way.

    What a bunch of twits (I had a better word, but, PC, you know what I mean).

    All the best.

    Cheers.

  • There are about 4 million adult Danes. If Trump offered 4 Trillion for Greenland, that would be a one million dollar cheque for every adult Dane. The government would sell it in a heartbeat. Every Dane would get a million dollars.

    And the 4 trillion is just added to the existing 20 trillion. So what. Let the Fed keep printing imaginary money. And if that causes to dollar to weaken somewhat, that works for exports. The US will be much more competitive with exporting, another Trump platform.

    The Danes will sell Greenland IF the price is right. The Danish population would insist. A one million dollar cheque for each Dane.

  • Lesley jt Lawrence says:

    Is this really supposed to be a news channel? These ppl are entertainers, not serious journalists or reporters. Except they're not very entertaining.

  • Buying Greenland is a stupid idea but if it happens I as a neanderthal think I should be one of the first colonists seeing as how I'm the best adapted to life in such an extreme climate.

  • Maybe ask Greenland if they want to be bought?
    They do have their own government and democracy. They're mostly symbolically part of the kingdom of Denmark.
    It's like asking the UK if you can buy Australia.

  • Denmark is fantastic and the people are wonderful. Let's meet in Kastrup and show you around. I could do a better job at approaching Denmark for business development.

  • Dude I agree w everything u said except about Jim Carrey he ain’t that funny bruh now u showing how off balance u are lol

  • China is taking Africa and its natural resources. They are buying up companies and real estate, and resources all in North & South America. They are also making moves in Greenland. Its time to step up before its to late.

  • Juan Williams can't be that dumb. He must be nothing more than a shill to make Fox look "fair & balanced." Any time I hear his voice, it is like fingernails across a chalkboard. I can't stand Democrats anymore; not that really exist anymore. Go Trump 2020 if not only to spite those dumb asses.

  • Im not going to church because my mom won't buy me a new hot wheels…
    You go Trump, if they don't listen fall to the ground and start kicking and screaming.
    That will show them!

  • ORRRRRRR Trump could of said "i respect" Denmark's rejection of the idea.
    It was just an idea.

    We are friends, friends toss around ideas.
    No harm no foul.

    Instead he threw a fit and canceled the meeting.

    We need a man in charge, not a spoiled rich child.

  • Trump was selected due his apparent control over his own emotions.

    He has shown the builders he is not the guy for the job in his lack of self control.

    Games is games, yet he clearly can not handle rejection.

    We should have rejected him at the birth of the "concept".

    An you all know it, you just have not come to face it yet.

    Perfect vision is 20/20

  • My god this is how low fox has fallen if you can justify it just pretend it’s a joke “ ohhh trump comedic genius” right …

  • I don't normally watch this show because of they constantly interrupt each other. I wanted to hear Juan complete his thought. He is usually off the mark, but lets be fair. I also didn't hear who else wanted to buy / bid on Greenland, 4:30 ,again because of talking over each other. Sounds more like an argument than a conversation.

  • This is a great idea! Manifest destiny returns! Denmark doesn't want to sell, so let's do like Russia does — just send a couple US ranger units there to take over like the "little green men" in Crimea. Our excuse: the Inuit population is oppressed and we need to make them part of the same country as the Inuit in Alaska.

  • Only the brain-dead inmates of Fox studios could attempt to pass off Trump's offer to buy Greenland as a joke, though in a sane world that is exactly what it would be. But it was not a joke, Trump was perfectly serious. This is the point at which everyone in America must acknowledge that the country is being run by an imbecile lunatic. Buying Greenland would cost billions of dollars. Running it would cost more. And Greenland is covered in ice – what the hell use would it be?

  • Whatever he offered cut it in half. Next time cut it more. Maybe he can get them to pay the USA to take it off their hands.

  • Greenland would make America 3 rd largest country by land in world. Plus China wants it too. So why dont we get a piece of land that create returns. On investment.

  • Its SO nice not to be confused when the head of your country speaks. When our PM says Greenland is not for sale and the proposal is "Absurd", I know she is to be taken BOTH literally AND seriously… on an even more serious note….Good friends tell good friends when their house is on fire. Dear American PEOPLE: YOUR HOUSE IS ON FIRE!!!!

  • America wants Greenland so that neocons can build military bases there to have Russia completely surrounded and pushed out of the Arctic. It's part of their Russian containment strategy.

  • Trump can't understand why somebody would feel insulted when asked to sell out his country. The word 'patriotism' is a mystery to him and his only motivation is Donald's money.

  • Marcus Pilgaard says:

    Greenland is an independent country. But it is still under the danish crown. Denmark cant sell Greenland. That would be like if Taiwan was selling China.

  • Yes, Juan, let's let the people of Greenland choose. All 56,000 of them on an island more than twice the size of Texas, The strategic importance of Greenland cannot be underestimated. China is consistently r=trying to move in. Trump knows this. Project "Ice Worm" should be investigated by those with a curious mind.
