GREG GUTFELD (CO-HOST): What did you think, Kimberly, of his speech? He didn't apologize, but he seemed kind of regretful. 

KIMBERLY GUILFOYLE (CO-HOST): Well, regretful. Really, to me, it feet like an apology. He was very remorseful about it, embarrassed about the United States. That,  if he was president, then that would never have happened. 

GUTFELD: That's an interesting point. 

GUILFOYLE: Always that he has the higher emotional I.Q., the higher morality and ethics, and if we would only listen to him we would actually all become better people, starting with Americans first.

MELISSA FRANCIS: But, there's more to this. The layer below that is about the posture that the president presents when he goes abroad. Ambassador Bolton wrote this great op-ed about the idea -- the notion that he bows all the time when he goes, which something heads of state do not do. You know, pointing out that he bowed to the head of Saudi Arabia, Japan, China. This is not the normal protocol. It really says is a lot about his opinion of America, of our posture, and there is a necessity to exude that strength out there in order to keep order in the world and to keep your enemies afraid.
