Fox News' take on the foul ball incident: "class envy and entitlement in a nutshell"

Fox News Network, April 27, 2012 Friday
THE FIVE
Kimberly Guilfoyle, Eric Bolling, Andrea Tantaros, Bob Beckel, Greg Gutfeld
.
GUTFELD: Welcome back. So, young couples being harassed for catching a baseball in the stands during a Yankee's game, a ball that might have gone to a toddler. Even the Yankees broadcaster castigated them for not giving the ball up. Yes, they're monsters. Behold, beholders.


(BEGIN VDIEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Look what happen, toss the ball.

Oh, my, god. They can't give it to the kid? That's awful.

O for three (INAUDIBLE) for his last 19, the little guy is crying.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Oh my goodness.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: He didn't get hit, he just didn't get the ball.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Wow! They're actually like rubbing it in the kid's face.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

GUILFOYLE: Oh, my gosh. That is awful.

GUTFELD: Shhh!

So to review, a baby is crying because he wants that ball, a ball that isn't his. But he wants that ball perhaps because someone else caught it. I suppose they could have given it to the baby. But they didn't even see the baby.

But even if they did see the baby, they still don't have to hand the ball over to the baby. It's their ball, fair and square. And there you have class envy and entitlement in a nutshell, Kimberly.

Student loan, bailouts, free birth control pills, taxing the rich to spread the wealth -- it's all just one screaming baby crying out for what you have.

But at least the baby at the game has an excuse, because it's a baby. Anyway, I went back and I looked closer at the photo. I felt like had seen the woman before. And would you know who it was?

A true monster.

GUILFOYLE: Oh, my gosh.

She doesn't like baby showers.

GUTFELD: Well, when it comes to the sky, they hit you.

GUTFELD: All right. This couple, Kimberly --

GUILFOYLE: Did you stay up all night for that?

GUTFELD: No, I just made it up.

GUILFOYLE: I'm for the baby.

GUTFELD: You're for the baby?

GUILFOYLE: Yes.

GUTFELD: Me, too.

GUILFOYLE: I'm for the baby.

GUTFELD: You're for the baby?

(CROSSTALK)

GUILFOYLE: Love is blind.

BECKEL: Whining about entitlements, just like that, you know? I mean, it's perfect that it would come from you. You and Republicans probably to think the kid didn't deserve the ball.

GUTFELD: He doesn't deserve the ball. What? How -- that baby has not worked a day in his life.

TANTAROS: And you know what's worse, Greg? That baby was at the same stadium, in the same seat and his parents told "Good Morning America," he already caught a ball before. So, he already has a ball.

GUTFELD: Wait a minute. I didn't know that. I should have read the story completely.

TANTAROS: Have you ever been at Yankee Stadium when you catch the ball and there's a kid sitting next to you. If you don't give the kid the ball, they will kill you.

BOLLING: That's in Texas stadium.

Also that lady -- this is really funny, though. The announcers they stayed on the shot like we are seeing now. The announcers, the yes announcer, said we pointed out the couple should give the ball to the kid so there is a big outcry for the couple on Facebook to, you know, they're terrible. They want an apology from the Yankee announcer. I say, stand up for yourself Yankee announcer. Do not apologize.

GUTFELD: I disagree completely. You are now a socialist. You are a socialist! That is their ball. They earned that ball.

This might have sounded all right on the air (I mean, stupid but coherent).

When you read the transcript, you'd think Ayn Rand had Tourette's and was given LSD. And I DON'T mean Paul Ryan.

Babies are the #2 threat to America today, right behind the Soviets!
