On Fox News' The Five Wednesday, the panelists discussed a recent speech by Hillary Clinton on the subject of white privilege and, after declaring it "pandering at its finest," declared her as the GOP's only hope to unify the party.

"White Americans need to do a much better job of listening when African-Americans talk about the seen and unseen barriers you face every day," Clinton said at Al Sharpton's National Action Network Convention. "We need to recognize our privilege and practice humility, rather than assume our experiences are everyone else’s experiences."

The Five's panelist were quick to note that her remarks came mere days after New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio's insensitive comments about "CP time."

Co-host Greg Gutfeld was incensed, saying that "she does not speak for all white people," and "she has absolutely no idea what's going on in the real world." He also noted that the tone of her voice will make her vulnerable to Trump in a debate. "When you hear that voice," he said, "you know there's no way in a debate she's going to make it -- because that voice, it makes your explode."

But the kicker, at least for former White House press secretary Dana Perino, was what comments like Clinton's could do for the GOP.

Clinton's "biggest accomplishment this year could be that she will be able to do what no other Republican has been able to do up till now -- and that is to unify the Republican Party."

"I find her comments today and the tone of it to be the one that motivates me to say, 'Fine then, never Hillary.'"
