Well it has been called one of the most highly anticipated books of the holiday season.
But enough about killing Kennedy what can we expect from Greg Gutfeld new book.
It's called the joint -- had a triumph over whiners and the age of phony outrage and it hits bookstores everywhere later today.
We can just hang around -- -- probably find steady yard sale.
Since -- can't interview himself.
-- -- switching roles Greg let me ask you.
Who invite someone on their show interview them about their -- book.
Well you know I was -- a tough position -- because the -- best person interview me would be me.
But I was busy.
Over here so I needed to find somebody that frankly I'm not intimidated by -- probably be needed to work.
And as you know you're kind of been hanging around here while such -- wanna give you shots the other little history.
I know it's awkward between us because of those things that happened a few years back but I thought -- -- we could bury the -- here and you could probably give a pretty good interview.
I'm under I think the joy of hate right at this moment yes it's amazing it's very liberating our if so what makes you think that people will buy this book as opposed to the four others you've written.
Well because this book actually matters in this book I talk about the what I call the Colorado -- Which is the person who claims to be tolerant but really isn't me it's somebody who claims to be compassionate until they need somebody -- disagree with.
They travel in packs which -- -- the Colorado -- Examples of the -- Ron and I are the -- the crips the Manson family.
-- -- -- See if you explain in the book.
This this taller rod -- -- it's that nothing offends you more than people who are always offended yes it's impossible to be angry all the time unfortunately on.
Thanks to the web especially because you live for their computers all the time -- actually read comments.
On various blogs they get angry and it's not good it's -- constantly working out you should only be angry three to four times a week at 45 minute intervals.
Just like working out but if you if -- if -- if you are angry.
Constantly it's like over exercise you Wear out your anger muscles I.
And they're probably killing people aren't you doing this I told you you mentioned.
Fat kids in the book he gets cut them a break that that -- -- are have become large targets in that is upon.
By the tolerance who claimed that they're doing something good when in fact -- passing this kind of weird judgment on.
Kate because there eating board that they -- the adults are they actually feel bad.
An angry that kids get to enjoy fattening foods to the so they're saying you can't -- -- whoever if you talk to any celebrity you'll find that there will tell you I was once that.
So actually being a fat kid always leads to success a lot of supermodels will say.
I was -- I was ugly that means -- of the also you know all fat people will grow up to be supermodels.
Or TV hosts or TV -- I was is that as a kid.
Part of my body was that but I had that surgically altered.
Well while you look lovely today thank you nice -- covered by the way yes clearly they airbrushed team -- that we're yes I called this might constipated.
Pierce Brosnan look very -- -- -- -- -- very sexy yes.
You -- of a lot of your own terms in this book -- explain.
What you called bad taste blind spot disorder this happens to everybody.
I'd like you.
For example let's say you are hanging out with your friends and LA you like you know watching TV -- making fun of people and you're sick sick jokes in the old city blog Twitter behind you -- one of those things he said.
-- that all of a sudden everybody's like.
That's not funny that's disgusting that's blind spot takes disorder because what happens is you are surrounded by people who agree with you.
And you don't realize which -- about to say might actually (%expletive) off a lot of people this happens a lot among comedians who are drunk on airplanes.
And that they can't get tweeting they're like guys in the use the C word of the use anywhere because they're -- they are haven't been around.
They haven't been around the rest of America so they have a blind spot about the things that -- set.
It's why you can have a comedian making fun of like Sarah Palin's kids.
-- and now I think it's funny until they sit in front of a large group of -- have to apologize.
We want isn't -- a lot of solutions in this why -- you -- to how to almost on how this triumph.
Yet over outraged yes what's the how can we all.
Learn how to triumph over I have this thing called the -- jerk effect which is if somebody bothers you you have to ask yourself if it was in the reverse let's say Bill Maher says something about somebody that I like and I get -- well what if it was Rush Limbaugh saying it about somebody I don't like what I get mad.
Now so therefore it's not worth getting mad you know over a fair playing field when it comes to the outrage -- -- the left a bit outrageous longer than the right.
But the right are catching up.
The -- -- -- you shouldn't be outrageous because you get a break something.
You know it's like it's you eat it's not like it's -- you're supposed to you're supposed to be -- having fun with people.
I am too bright part always used to say when he was faced by somebody who was who was -- he'd say so and that's what you got to deal was that they so.
He dedicated book and -- that is true because we often talked about these things together when we're getting very -- And so yeah dedicated to him.
Not to you Lauren I don't ever dedicated anything not even mentioned the part I'm not own lawyer I I -- what out of my way to the bank everybody -- Fox News but you.
Yeah yeah our current and I hope you sell a lot of these employees -- -- out today it's time to take a break.
