Even this Fox News host's colleagues were stunned by his reactions to the Derek Chauvin trial verdict
Fox News chose Greg Gutfeld, the host of its new late-night talk show "Gutfeld!" along with "Judge" Jeanine Pirro as its on-air talent for Tuesday's verdict in the trial of Derek Chauvin.
Gutfeld told his co-host that he's "glad" Chauvin was found guilty on all counts in the murder of George Floyd, because his neighborhood was looted once and he wanted "a verdict that keeps this country from going up in flames."

"Oh uh-oh, said Pirro.
"Oh my goodness," said another voice off-screen.
"Look, Greg," Pirro responded.
