In The Gutfeld Monologues: Classic Rants from The Five, Gutfeld collects several years' worth of his monologues, splits them up topically, adds some commentary and updates, and calls it a book. If you know Gutfeld at all, you won't be surprised by his takes on law and order, Islamic terror, Hollywood, or the environment. It's fun to see how his opinions have aged on issues and events that were in the news during the Obama administration. (Hint: they've aged well.)
Gutfeld's perspectives are reliably conservative, but not necessarily lockstep. Clearly he opposed Obama and, while he was not a big fan of Trump, since the election he's been largely supportive of Trump's administration. But what makes Gutfeld and The Gutfeld Monologues unique and fun to read is his self-deprecating humor, his random bon mots, and his silly turns of phrase. Sometimes his jokes are a bit nonsensical, but that's his style.
A few random examples:
I could go on, but you should just read the book.
- "The last time I got my hands dirty was April 3, 2005. I can't get into the actual circumstance, because it involved a bucket of voles and a chinchilla."
- "If you want to make something sexy, try to ban it. It's why I started eating Tide Pods once everyone was saying they were bad for you."
- "Imagine if Hillary had won. We'd have to hear from these idiots [Hollywood leftists] every single day. Wait. Trump won. And we still have to hear from these idiots every single day. That's America!"
Gutfeld loves to point out silliness, expose hypocrisy, and shut down idiocy on the left. He does it all with a smile (or maybe a sneer) and with little reluctance to offend. He doesn't take himself too seriously, which is a perfect attitude in the current climate of political absurdity.
