"We're not even allowed to use the word that he said, but we have him on our network all the time?" Gutfeld said

On Tuesday's edition of "The Five," Greg Gutfeld asked Eric Bolling to "Trumpsplain" exactly what the GOP front-runner meant when he said it was "disgusting" for Hillary Clinton to use the bathroom during the last Democratic presidential debate.

"When Hillary makes up something as egregious as, ‘Donald Trump has now become ISIS’ recruiting tool,'" Bolling replied, "what [Trump] does is he responds as he does with everyone else -- he goes back at whoever the attacker is."

"I just wanted to hear you defend this,” Gutfeld shot back. “Because I’ve heard people defend him about making fun of a disability, making fun of John McCain, making fun of women, a woman’s face. I wanted to hear somebody defend this as well. Because it never ends."

"No one will ever stop defending the crass stuff he says," he continued. "I haven't used that word ['schlonged'] since I was seven years old. I don't understand this -- and I also don't understand the comment about the bathroom. I'm sick of hearing people defend this stuff."

"By the way," Gutfeld added, "we're not even allowed to use the word that he said, but somehow we're going to have him on our network all the time. Meanwhile, we treat our employees far differently than that."

"[Trump] was at a campaign rally saying, ‘She made something up, she lied about it,'” Bolling said. “Then he went on and pointed out the fact that she was late coming back from -- "

"That's Trumpsplaining!" Gutfeld replied.

He later accused Trump of being "surrounded by toadies that cheer [him] on," which makes him like a comedian, hungry for the laughter at all costs. "Instead of thinking about what he says, he's impulsive and it makes you wonder, do you want an impulsive leader?" Gutfeld asked. "Or do you want a leader that thinks? I want somebody who can beat Hillary -- I don't think an impulsive leader is going to beat Hillary."
