When George Floyd was murdered by Derek Chauvin last summer, basically nobody was ready to defend him. Even the talking heads on Fox News realized how clear the evidence was against the officer.
But when the murder trial began, Fox Anchors were more willing to come out and paint Chauvin as the victim. Tucker Carlson went so far as to say that the officer was actually lynched.
Unsurprisingly, some members of the Fox Panel did not respond well to the announcement that Chauvin was found guilty in all three cases. This is especially true for Greg Gutfeld.
The moderator told the audience:
“I think so that the media can play to the narrative that a miracle America is full of racist rubles to make but their viewers feel superior This was not a divisive case, and I think it’s a contrast between the reality of Americans who experienced all of this at once and then establish one Environment of the people who Create the news that is this reflects a racist country, it reflects racial segregation, it means the cops are all racist It’s not a bug in the system the system itself, that was something created the perception of Division, everyone agrees the case was disgusting and ugly, another story is played out I am very glad it was him found guilty of all charges, even if he couldn’t be guilty That’s exactly what makes me happy He is guilty of all charges because I want to judge that keeps this country from ascending in flames.”
Greg Gutfeld: “I’m happy [Chauvin] found guilty on all charges, although he may not be guilty on all charges. I’m glad he is guilty of all charges because I want a verdict that will keep this country from going up in flames. “(Note the groans from his fellow Fox News.) Pic.twitter.com/DulsFEMwcO

The panel, including Jeanine Pirro, groaned when the judge said, “We are not sacrifice individuals for the to see how people feel “
