Why? How? I watched it again to see what Milo is doing and the other panelists are not doing, including a professional actor. Milo puts on faces, innocent, coy, coquettish, girlish, he flaps his hand as if waving handkerchiefs, he puts on various voices to accentuate his point, he mispronounces disarmingly, "The guy was born in Canader," "Medier has forgotten how to talk to these people," "Doesn't compaaah to the popular support for Daddy," then mugs his use of the unconventional word.
Milo is compelling, he concludes, "I find it appalling."
Tucker Carlson is intellectual, he concludes. "The latter."
Milo is intellectual within his projected character. Tucker is merely intellectual, and that is his character. Milo is flexible, soft malleable, elastic. Tucker is rigid. Milo moves, he tucks in his head and shrinks within his suit, tilts his head to an angle, tilts his head downward and speaks looking through his own eyebrows. Tucker is stiffly looking directly forward and barely turns his head to address the guest next to him.
The actor, Steven Bauer, looks nothing like his previous self, he looks aged and withered and nearly dead next to Milo.
And the two women are basically Milo's natural props. Excepting their sexual dressing, for gravitas they suppress their own girlishness, their femininity that Milo exaggerates.
Gregg Gutfeld cracks me up. Commenters at YouTube find him irritating and I find that surprising.
Gutfeld directs the conversation to his guests very well while comically including a backhanded slap. The guest accepts being call on to respond while silently accepting the comedic slap. "Kat, my guess is that you get harassed all the time on Twitter, but I also guess that you probably deserve it."
Gutfeld, "Kat, you’ve been following this stuff a lot. What’s your take on this; surprised, disappointed, aroused?"
That kills me.
It reminds me of one of the funniest scenes I've seen on film. This is the top. Robin Williams is teaching Nathan Lane how to behave as a man. I never thought that Williams can be upstaged but Lane gives him a good run. Williams is actually playing straight man (literally) to Lane's comedic virtuosity. And the script they are given is perfect. It's hard to imagine anyone doing this better. The two lines that lodged are Williams saying he didn't realized John Wayne walked like a swish. Then later, the same scene is edited with an interjection of a highway scene, Williams and Lane are still practicing. Lane plays the faggiest fag in all fagdom.
Williams behaving gruffly teaching Lane to shake hands like a man and strike up banal conversation that is not possible for Lane. " How do you feel about that call today, I mean the Dolphins 4th and 3, play on their 30 yard line with only 34 seconds to go."
Lane responding to sport related cue,"How do you think I feel? Betrayed. Bewildered."
I die laughing at that. I can't help using that in real life. Answer with feelings inappropriate to the question about how I feel on any given subject. I watched these scenes again and cracked up laughing all over again. They'll never stop being hilarious. Lane is over the top portraying a gay in his rarified specific and completely self-contained world. This clip is the worst technical quality with the complete scenes of Williams trying to teach Lane how to butch it up, a doomed task. It's worth a watch to lighten your day. It has me in tears laughing so hard.
