let's not confuse bad gas prices and a horrible economy. the thing i like, i watch the little things about the athletes, the stuff they have come through. the one little girl in iowa who got her entire gym flooded out, and she couldn't practice, right? so the town came in to fix it up so he is could do it. wonderful stories. one story after another. they are all individual stories. anybody who works that hard to get there, some of them were only on for eight seconds. that's it. eight seconds. >> andrea: the weightlifting. you lift up and you say they trained for years and years, hours a day. for two or three seconds. >> eric: they sacrifice their whole lifetime, they don't get paid. they're amateurs. they don't get paid. >> andrea: like college athletes. the ncaa says the same thing.
you have can't make money i'm not in agreement with what the olympic committee is doing. the kids work hard for sponsorship and they should get allowed to be paid while over there. by the way, congratulations to may-trainer and walsh, the women's volleyball team playing together for 16 years despite may-trainer having pink eye. your favorite, the women in the skiv i haves. they overcame pink eye and advance to saturday. >> eric: look at greg. you are contemplating, you are happy about this. up next i love the olympics. it's fantastic. i could be a sponsor for a number of athletes. live with me while they train as long as they don't mind the cameras. sometimes we confuse sacrifice with discipline. they aren't sacrificing. they're training. they're undulging in a singular activity that is for themselves. the family is doing the sacrificing. it's important that they do get the money in that small
window that they have. because there is no, you know, professional long jumpers association. this is the only time they can make money. in terms of tax nation question, you have jose feliciano who earned 19 medals. under the -- you have michael fellps who earned 19 medals, so obama should give nine and spread the wealth around. give it to hubie brown. he could use them. >> bob: we're not politicizing this, we thought. >> eric: talk about the tax rates. some of the olympic athletes will be paying on their medals. i think it's $25,000 -- there we go. $25,000 you are paid, winnings to win a gold medal. if you add the tax of that, the i.r.s. tax on that, and plus whatever the gold value in the medal you can pay $89,886. >> greg: if you have a good accountant -- let's face it. once every four years you have a good account tant and expenses for training. the government sees this as
the price is right prize. not as a trophy. he works hard for it. it's a trophy. if i had to pay taxes for the trophy for amateur body building that i performed in home of elderly gentlemen, i wouldn't know what to do. >> kimberly: gross. >> bob: a lot of those gentlemen died prematurely. >> kimberly: really weird. >> greg: it was not my fault. >> kimberly: like "pulp fiction." >> bob: everybody who gets an award for accomplishment, whether it's the nobel peace prize or whether it's the catholic -- what is the name of the catholic award they give? $50,000 -- >> andrea: obama's nobel peace prize. did he pay tax on that? >> bob: it's income. why should it be separate from anybody else? >> eric: here's why. this is a good discussion. military people are in olympics. what about excepting them from any sport of i.r.s. tax
burden. they risk lives for the country. disagree. it's no-brainer but i feel it should be inclusive. you should have all the athletes. i think, we have to have somebody represent us in the olympics. you know? >> bob: what about people who get cash awards for other things? >> andrea: what about sacrifice? they are sacrifices the thing we all do every day they don't get to do. but on the tax issue. okay. i don't think any olympian should have to pay taxes on the award be. clear. but think what we're doing. sitting around a table to talk about doing what washington does over and over again. create short-term fix and loophole closure to complicate the tax code more. we always do this. >> bob: it's part of a tax code. if you get benefits, you pay taxes. i don't care who you are.
>> eric:ly get to greg. because if we stop spending in d.c., had a surplus we could except athletes. >> greg: can i make a point? this is not a huge outrage. you are not talking about a lot of money. but it's metaphor for how government works. you work really hard, they get the cut. it goes to somebody else on a couch. government punishs success. case and point. if you don't win the gold, you win the bronze, you get less, you get less of a punishment. it's like when you get a job promotion and you are looking forward to seeing it in your check and the check comes and you go it's not that great. because government took -- it's going for bronze and gold. >> bob: the award for catholics given out every year for one catholic who sacrifices an awful lot and those are taxed as well. why should that person be different than the olympics? >> eric: $9,000 for, up to $9,000 for gold medal. which would make you madder as an american paying taxes if we excepted that olympic winner
from that $9,000 or giving $9,000 to someone sitting home, collecting welfare and pile of food stamps. >> bob: c'mon! even you can't go that low. >> eric: money is spongeable. it will cost us $9,000 -- >> bob: why should anybody else get an award have to pay taxes? you won't answer my question. >> kimberly: bob is saying the olympians should be taxed. >> bob: they should be treated like anybody else who gets award for achievement. they are taxed. >> andrea: think about the debate we're having. take this to politics, right? the tax code is not punitive. we have a president that is arguing that the tax code should penalize success. that is a exactly what this rule does. again, i can see why people are for a flat tax. we're cherry picking certain things. hold on. exempting, bob, i agree, excepting certain groups here and, there certain people if you have a good lobbyists you can get excepted. that's why, they shouldn't pay taxes. a quick fix solution for olympians and non-olympians --
>> kimberly: we need broader-base reform. do a flat tax. >> greg: you have something on your shirt. [ laughter ] >> eric: andrea pointed out that the chinese athletes are actually, they train hard but they are also -- do we have pictures? we have pictures, right? chinese athletes are training and working out. our olympic, i ioc usoc doesn't pay our people to be professional athletes. other countries do. these are going to end up be professional athletes. >> andrea: they shouldn't. china says no, we don't sponsor the athletes. the russians started sponsoring them as p.r. stunt to show the world that socialism was a good thing. we know how that turned out. now these pictures, eric, these aren't as bad. these remind me of my gymnastics class. but there are other pictures out there on the web that show -- this is okay. >> kimberly: that one looks
terrible. >> andrea: no, that looks like -- hold on. this actually looks like a typical gymnastics class. but there are other pictures throughout that show the kids looking like they have been fortureed. hard work one thing. but kids should not be having their knuckles crack. some of my coaches were pretty tough. >> eric: the point, here is the point. the u.s. olympic committee makes a ton of money. there is a lot of money coming in from the sponsorship and whatnot. the athletes don't get a penny of it. >> kimberly: unfair. >> eric: they do. >> kimberly: it's unfair. unfair >> bob: where? >> eric: most other countries. >> bob: i disagree. >> eric: you disagree that athletes in other countries are paid? >> bob: i disagree on lots of things. show me where brits pay the athletes i'll be surprised. >> greg: compare the guys to a lot of professional athletes we see who are paid a lot of money and they shoot themselveses in strip clubs, they fight pit bulls. c'mon, they're better role
molds -- >> bob: which is why we should haven't professional basketball players playing for the basketball team. they're overpaid. >> eric: we end it on that. coming up, you knew it had to happen in a youtube era. it's a matter of time before some punc videotapes himself doing something really stupid to a chick-fil-a employee. we have the tape. gutfeld is fired up next. >> greg: grrrrr! ♪ ♪

heterosexual. >> greg: "i feel purposeful." what a d-bag. brave man. never using his name, posting the video under an alias. filming a woman without her permission, as she only tries to serve him. under the guise of tolerance we sanctioned bullying. congratulations. you become evening you have been complaining about all these years. a big, fat, stupid jerk. what a wonderful contrast. here you have a sweet, hard-working woman trying to do her job, and maintaining an amazing amount of grace. before her, a prostitute for attention. mind you, the hateful harasser stressed he was straight. does he worry that people think he is gay, as if that's an insult? maybe he did that to mask his own homophobia. in seeing this woman's poise under persecution, you got to ask: whose side are you on? it's not about gay or straight or freedom versus tyranny, it's heroes versus zeros.
because when the temporary conflicts dissipate, and they always do, the only one left holding the bag is that young lady at the counter. she couldn't care less who the dope sleeps with. she does her job and will keep doing her job long after we moved on to something else. i bet that guy is still in the parking lot recording his sad and lonely commentary. >> eric: you made one of the most important points of the whole thing, why was he pointing out he was straight? >> greg: yes! was he trying to hit on her? after basically humiliating her. >> eric: worse than that, was he trying to say if he were gay was it a bad thing? is he embarrassed of someone gay? isn't that homophobic? >> greg: this poor girl is doing his have been and he comes off as a home phobe. >> andrea: he said i'm so happy with myself. if you're so happy with yourself why did he take down the video and post it anonymously. we're always taught in the restaurant business the
customer is always right. i can tell you right now that girl has more self-control than i do. that would have resulted with a chicken sandwich going somewhere that may have cost me my job. >> greg: where are all the heroes for bullying? >> kimberly: i think she is a heroine. she was polite and courteous. model employee. this backfireed completely. she was perfect in how she handled this and so sweet. they couldn't have hand picked somebody if they knew he was coming to put at the window to show customer service, the attitude, the employees that work there. i thought she was spot-on. >> andrea: she should get a promotion. >> kimberly: manager! bob is playing with magnets. >> bob: here is what struck me about that. all the gays over the years who have been harassed by people, this guy to go under the guise of defending the gay movement and to do that kind of thing, which is exactly what has happened to gays through decades is to me, the
worst kind of bullying. that's what gays have been bullied for a long time. so they got organized. to do that, it seems to me, it's just a simple thing. shoot 'em. >> kimberly: my gosh. bob! bob is kidding. bob is joking, he doesn't condone violence. >> eric: you want to look at homophobia in the dictioniary, there should be a link to that videotape there. gay community should come out against it. >> kimberly: disavow him. >> bob: i'm sure they are appalled by that. >> greg: this is the first time ever you were playing with a toy in the segment. >> bob: but i was listening. >> andrea: she deserves a raise and promotion. what a better employee do you want? have a nice day. she maintained her cool. this whole thing, though, the same first amendment, it's very clear that protects dan kathy the ceo of chick-fil-a
is right to hold his own personal religious beliefs is the same first amendment that allowed for mosque at ground zero. the same people that are arguing that this is bad were the people who said no, they should have freedom, freedom of religion. the government, it's different. ceo's personal belief is different from government official like rahm emanuel trying to stop this. >> eric: then you should be okay with that guy doing what he did. first amendment rights. >> andrea: that seems like bullying. would you argue tomorrow -- people have a right to do it. but tomorrow a lot of gay and lesbians are going to chick-fil-a for a kiss-in. appropriate or not appropriate? they have the right to do it as long as they don't interfere in the workplace. >> bob: has been bullied more than gays in the '50s and '60s. for this guy to represent them is i find just appalling. i assume the gay community does, too. >> greg: but then again they took it down. >> kimberly: that is the
problem. the video wasn't up so long. >> bob: i think she should be the manager. >> eric: he is should, chick-fil-a should bring her to corporate and make her head of customer service. >> kimberly: she was great. well composed. she was raised by great parents i think. >> andrea: just because he has a right to say it, it doesn't make it right. the same arguement with the mosque. you a right to build it. >> bob: same with the coo. he has a right to say it, but he shouldn't have said it. >> kimberly: he's a coward to beat up on a girl like that. who is she? she is not corporate. >> bob: the corporate ceo beat up on people who are gay. >> andrea: he can voice his beliefs. chick-fil-a doesn't discriminate against employees on sexual orientation. that's different than government been aing a business. >> bob: eric has a point here. you can't say that this guy is important as he is has a right to not, has a right to say that. same way that the coo had a right to say that bigoted thing.
>> greg: i want to end with a quote from our clark cooper who is the executive director of the log cabin republicans talking about this whole thing. he wrote while in a perfect world, our equality should not edepend on the good behavior. in a world where the rights often hinge on the political reality, the way our moven't conducts itself now. just means be a good guy. that is all it means. that's all anybody is asking. >> eric: you like that. >> greg: exactly. coming um, president obama is so amazing that even he is now donating to his own campaign. >> first of all, i think everybody should know i care about this campaign. the united states of america. and my o occupation is president. >> greg: a story you don't want to miss. according to the stories you don't want to miss almanac. ♪ ♪

then they look at the line and realize they'll be outspent. he has 40 p.c. of the contribution, $200 less. and romney, 15%. >> greg: he did a great job to show people how to use the computer. he should show how to download the birth certificate. thursday cheap shot. if it was romney who donated $5,000 to himself -- let me finish. if it was personal or whatever, where romney donated $5,000 to his campaign, everybody would be going crazy. because he is mr. money bags. when obama does it, it's cute and adorable like an episode of "the office." >> bob: the more important
story here is the fact that mitt romney tax proposals -- >> andrea: here we go. >> bob: -- are so outrageously bias and would put us in a deficit it's beyond comprehensive. i read them. have you read them? cut taxes for rich people, increase taxes, and do away for tax rates and he thinks that will be -- >> andrea: and obama hammers him on this. romney has not talked about taxing the poor and the mittal class moor. trying to redesign the middle class. >> bob: he is. >> andrea: but obama wans to redistribute the wealth more. >> bob: wait until the cbo comes out with scoring on romney's budget. it will be catastrophic. >> andrea: harry reid came out recently and he resorted to hearsay politics to claim a guy called him up on the phone, he won't say who and telling him that romney hasn't paid his taxes in the last ten years. he tells this to the huffington post. what would happen if i said
