Greg Gutfeld: “Police brutality was exaggerated. I believe it's exaggerated...”

GREG GUTFELD (CO-HOST): The media attention is always about the periphery issues, but there is a bigger issue – and I’ve always said this before, with Donald Trump, the bigger issue obliterates the little issues. You don’t have to like him, you don’t have to like the fact that he forgets about things, or the fact that he doesn’t see a child and doesn’t shake the hand, and you think that’s awful. You come up with all of the stupid stuff, when in fact when you look at the bigger issue, the bigger issue matters.

And this is my advice for Democrats, listen, the fact is he took law enforcement, terror, border, wrapped it up into this kind of cocoon of national security, and he beat the pants off you, because of this very issue. And what he did with law enforcement is he made it okay to appreciate law enforcement again.

Most of America appreciated it from the first place, but now you can do it openly because we had a media that for the past six years – that painted law enforcement as the problem. Police brutality was exaggerated. I believe it’s exaggerated, it’s time – now the pendulum is swinging back to the point where we can say, “we’re proud of what you do.”

JUAN WILLIAMS (CO-HOST): Let me tell you, if you’re black or brown in America, police brutality is not exaggerated.

GUTFELD: I saw that response coming.

WILLIAMS: And you know what else—

GUTFELD: I look at statistics.
