“The ‘proud deplorable’ smashes expectations,” FNC primetime star Sean Hannity crowed, in keeping with the tweet issued by Donald Trump Jr., saying, “Wow amazing.

Barr “demonstrated her patriotism, showed some love for the president on the show,” gushed The Five’s Kimberly Guilfoyle. “Maybe the television industry should pay attention to those monster ratings.”

“That’s a news show versus a sitcom,” pointed out The Five stickler Dana Perino, prompting ringleader Gutfeld to shoot back, “Don’t laugh at my comparison or I will skip you and go to Jesse!”
The show’s opening success shows that people are “desperate for a real reflection of the political discussion minus the biased framing from Hollywood and the media,” he insisted.
