Fox News anchor Dana Perino caught her cohosts by surprise when she let an off-color joke slip out during a live broadcast.
Perino, who is typically more reserved than her cohosts on the network’s drive-time panel show “The Five,” made a joke during Monday’s broadcast about President Joe Biden’s recent claim that inflation had only risen “an inch” in recent weeks.
Cohost Greg Gutfeld responded to Biden’s comments first, saying that he meant to take a moment to defend the president.
“You know, I’ve got to take this moment to defend him, especially on the inflation piece,” Gutfeld said. “When he said inflation is up just an inch, he was probably referring to a chart. Right? Oh, look, that’s just an inch. That’s just an inch.”
“Maybe,” Perino replied.
“I think you’re right,” cohost Jesse Watters added.
“He’s not really president. He’s not even present,” Gutfeld concluded, arguing that Biden had essentially been sent out to do an interview but he hadn’t truly been the one calling the shots.
“More to come on all of this, because it’s just an inch,” Perino cut in, changing her tone slightly as she added, “You know, an inch matters.”
