Obama Slams Fox News and 'Red Eye's' Greg Gutfeld Slams Him Back (VIDEO)

In the latest issue of 'Rolling Stone,' President Barack Obama attacked Fox News, claiming the cable network has a "point of view that I think is ultimately destructive for the long-term growth of a country that has a vibrant middle class."

Fox News host Greg Gutfeld struck back on 'Red Eye' (weekdays, 3AM ET on Fox News).

"Okay. So, you're the president of the United States, with both houses under your control," Gutfeld explained. "You also have the most fawning press of any president in the history of the universe. And yet you let FNC get under your skin?"

"Obama is like a sports team who owns the ref, the fans and the field," he continued. "But refuses to play until the kid in the 10th row stops chewing gum."

Then Gutfeld advanced the theory that Obama was attacking Fox News as a proxy for the American people, who Obama can't get away with attacking:

"And this is why the Whiner-in-Chief needs us. It provides cover, so Obama can criticize Americans without ever saying 'America.' He can just say Fox News instead."

One thing is for sure: If you go after a collection of talking heads, you're going to get an earful back.
