Debate moderator and Fox contributor Juan Williams appeared on Tuesday’s episode of “The Five” to fill in for host Bob Beckel. Williams, who has generated tremendous media attention following his debate performance, took the opportunity to delve into what many call one of the best — and now most widely discussed — moments of the evening.
Williams, who asked presidential contender Newt Gingrich if using the term “food stamps president” in reference to President Obama might be considered condescending to some, especially minorities, said he believes the former House Speaker didn’t answer the question posed to him at all.
Gingrich did, however, deliver a fiery retort that evening, telling Williams that more Americans have been placed on food stamps under Obama than any other president in history. Williams was also unceremoniously booed during the same question and answer segment. He joked to his fellow Fox hosts that he had, however, been warned that there was a chance he might endure such jeers.
