THE FIVE

Roseanne Barr's run for White House?

Would you vote for someone who says she wants to behead the rich?

 

This is a rush transcript from "The Five," February 3, 2012. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

GREG GUTFELD, CO-HOST: So Roseanne Barr has thrown her muumuu into the ring in the Green Party's presidential candidate. Not that the greenies had asked, but how often do unstable people ask permission for anything? I kid the Barr-ness. In fact, she's a prime candidate for she represents not just the green party, but the left in general. That means the media, the entertainment industry and assorted artist, poets, pontificators, and inmates that comprise the modern definition of the progressive.

Remember, she was the first to say this.

ROSEANNE BARR, COMEDIAN: I first would allow the guilty bankers the ability to pay back anything over $100 million personal wealth because I believe in a maximum wage of $100 million. If they're unable to live on that amount, then they should, you know, go to the reeducation camps. And if that doesn't help, then be beheaded.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

GUTFELD: Yet before there was Occupy Wall Street, before there was fair share, before there was the 99 percent, Barr was already on message. But instead of wimpy euphemisms like spreading the wealth around, she says off with their heads.

Now, if you won't find clout about we're all in this together, she's the emperor without clothes, proudly bearing the mantle of class warfare that now infects our national discourse. Despite a fortune not far from 100 million bucks, she saw the enemy and it was her.

But I think the Green Party is too small for her. If she doesn't primary Obama, then she shortchanging herself and America. Sadly, though, I hear she's submitted the paperwork to the Green Party, which from what I understand, consisted of her initials scrawled in lipstick on the back of a box turtle.

KIMBERLY GUILFOYLE, CO-HOST: Oh, my goodness. Poor box turtle.

GUTFELD: Did she hurt somebody, Bob?

BOB BECKEL, CO-HOST: First, I was wondering about, what was Tom Arnold thinking?

GUTFELD: He wasn't.

(LAUGHTER)

GUILFOYLE: Well, he was --

DANA PERINO, CO-HOST: He was thinking 100 million.

BECKEL: Yes, maybe.

(CROSSTALK)

GUILFOYLE: Yes.

BECKEL: On somewhat of the only serious note you get, if she really does go on the ballot in some states, the Green Party can siphon off 25,000, 30,000, 50,000 votes. In Florida, in 2000, about -- maybe got 90,000 votes, in a very contentious election. So it's not completely laughable -- unlike Eric's opening on the last monologue.

We shouldn't talk about it anymore.

GUTFELD: OK.

(LAUGHTER)

GUTFELD: OK. I want to talk about Steven Tyler. He got some controversy over his singing of the national anthem, somebody called it flubbing. Other peoples loved it. Other peoples -- what's wrong with me?

Anyway, our own Brian Kilmeade was talking to him earlier. They'd clip on "Fox & Friends" explaining this. Go.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

(SINGING)

STEVEN TYLER, MUSICIAN: Not only that, but I want to go public and sing, and the home -- the word was free -- free, because America is free and I celebrate freedom because I'm an American. You stupid (EXPLETIVE DELETED). No, edit that out, please.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

GUTFELD: Well, Carly Simon is looking pretty good.

What he's -- did he do a bad job/good job?

ERIC BOLLING, CO-HOST: I don't know what he's doing -- it wasn't his hitting the high note on free. It's the fact that he flubbed the line before that on the bombs bursting in air. Remember that?

GUTFELD: Yes.

BOLLING: That's what we got mad about. You know, we have a lot of service people who are pretty ticked off about that. Just apologize.

GUTFELD: I love this guy, Kimberly. He follows an incoherent performance with an incoherent explanation.

GUILFOYLE: Yes, that was very bizarre. I mean, come on, you're hiring him to go do this? What did you really expect? The cleaned up, polished version for him to get the whole right? No, really. No one did. I don't think it was that bad.

PERINO: I actually turned down an invitation to sing the national anthem at the Super Bowl.

GUTFELD: Really?

PERINO: They got Madonna instead because she's got better arms.

GUTFELD: Oh, that's an injustice. What do you rock and roller turning to androgynist emus?

GUILFOYLE: Whatever.

GUTFELD: I don't know. Bob, I got to tease?

BECKEL: Please do.

GUTFELD: OK. Coming up, I'm really fired up fort big game on Sunday night. My prediction, the score will be 96 to 95 and the Giants will score a winning basket in the last 10 seconds to win the match.

In a moment, you'll hear what the other four have to say. If you leave now, I'm not coming to your Super Bowl party and you won't get any of my world famous New Jersey salad.
