Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

Welcome to “This Week In Crazy,” The National Memo’s weekly update on the wildest attacks, conspiracy theories, and other loony behavior from the increasingly unhinged right wing. Starting with number five:

5. Kimberly Guilfoyle

Like many Americans, the hosts of Fox News’ The Five are concerned about ISIS’ violent rampage across the Middle East.

Unlike any other Americans, however, their solution is to install Russian president Vladimir Putin as a temporary dictator to clean up the mess.

“In terms of making, like, decisive action” against ISIS, co-host Kimberly Guilfoyle explaiend, she has a “special request.”

“Could we get, like, Netanyahu, or like, Putin in for 48 hours, as, you know, head of the United States?” she asked. “I don’t know, I just want somebody to get in here and get it done right, so that Americans don’t have to worry and wake up in the morning fearful of a group that’s murderous or horrific like ISIS.”

Because nobody in Israel or Russia ever has to worry about terrorism.

Of course, if the titular five think that Obama is a tyrant, they probably wouldn’t love temporary president Putin’s Federal Mass Media Inspection Service. But then again, they may be onboard with his conflict-resolution style.
