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.
