‘The Five’ breaks down 2020 Dems’ extreme climate agendas


♪ ♪>>Jesse: IT’S TIME FOR THE 2020 ROUND UP, IF YOU THOUGHT THAT DEMOCRATS EXTREME CLIMATE AGENDA COULD NOT GET ANY CRAZIER, THINK AGAIN. HERE IS A NEW ONE. IF YOU EAT MEAT OR USE PLASTIC STRAWS, YOU ARE TO BLAME FOR KILLING THE PLANET. SO SAYS MAYOR PETE.>>WE THINK ABOUT IT THROUGH THE PERSPECTIVE OF GUILDS, FROM USING A STRAW TO EATING A BURGER, AM I PART OF THE PROBLEM? IN A CERTAIN WAY, YES, BUT THE MOST EXCITING THING IS WE CAN BE A PART OF THE SOLUTION.>>Jesse: SO EXCITING, AND THERE IS NEW YORK CITY’S DISASTROUS MAYOR BILL de BLASIO GOING HEAD-TO-HEAD WITH TUCKER OVER HIS CLIMATE HYPOCRISY.>>HOW CAN YOU TAKE AN SUV TO THE GYM AND BACK EVERY DAY AND SAY THAT YOU ARE WORRIED ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE. I KNOW IT IS A PETTY QUESTION.>>IT IS A CHRYSLER PACIFICA. IT IS A PACIFICA. IT IS A HYBRID ELECTRIC, IT IS NOT A GOOD SUV.>>Jesse: BRIAN, IT IS A PACIFICA.>>Brian: BUT THE SUVs THAT FOLLOW HIM, UNBELIEVABLE, I THOUGHT IT WAS SO INTERESTING TO SEE MAYOR de BLASIO. ONE THING I GIVE HIM CREDIT FOR IS GOING ON, MAYOR MACK TWO, HE WON SUPPORTERS. I THINK THAT NUMBER THREE WHEN I LOOK BACK AT THE TAPE, I THINK THAT –>>Jesse: YOU WATCH HER PERFORMANCE AFTERWARDS?>>Brian: YES, MOST OF THE TIME I GIVE MYSELF AN A+. AND I EVALUATE MY APPEARANCE. BACK TO MY ORIGINAL POINT, SEVEN HOURS THAT, THAT MARATHON WAS PROBABLY THE BEST THING THAT HAPPENED TO TRUMP 2020, BY FAR, AND THE PEOPLE THROW THINGS OUT, ALL OF THE CANDIDATES THROW THINGS OUT, AND THEY HAVE NO PLAN TO EXECUTE. WHEN HE WAS PUSHED ON HIS BUYBACK PLAN, THE SECOND THAT HE WAS ASKED HOW YOU WILL DO IT, HE SAID, WE DON’T KNOW HOW WE ARE GOING TO DO IT, BASICALLY SAID THE SAME SIDE, I WALK INTO MY HOUSE AND GO GRAB THE AK-47.>>Jesse: NOT A GREAT PLAN.>>Dagen: I WANT THE LEFTIES TO GET CALLED OUT AS IMMORAL TO REDUCE THE STANDARD OF LIVING FOR EVERY AMERICAN BY TRYING TO BAN FOSSIL FUELS IN THE COUNTRY. THEY ARE PART OF THE PROBLEM, NOT THE SOLUTION.>>Jesse: OH, JUAN, THAT IS TOUGH TALK. ARE YOU GOING TO LET THAT STAND?>>Dagen: IT IS IMMORAL.>>Juan: I’M GOING TO GO TO CHURCH ON SUNDAY.>>Brian: MEHR BOOTED TO THE EDGE.>>Juan: IS HERE REVEREND?>>Jesse: HE TALKS TO GOD.>>Juan: IF WE CAN LIMIT CONSUMPTION, WE CAN LIMIT GENERATING THE CARBON DEATHS THAT GO INTO THE ATMOSPHERE. I DON’T SEE ANYTHING WRONG WITH THAT, I JUST DON’T SEE ANY REELS ABOUT THAT FROM THE RIGHT, AND THEN THE LEFT SAYS, YOU ARE TRYING TO CONTROL ME, PRESIDENT TRUMP IS RAISING ASTOUNDING AMOUNTS OF MONEY, BUY A TRUMP STRAW, THAT IS HIS IDEA?>>Jesse: IT DOES NOT MEAN IT IS GOOD BECAUSE IT IS AN IDEA. SOMETIMES THEY ARE DUMB IDEAS. AND YOU ARE FULL OF DUMB IDEAS. MAKING SURE THAT EVERYBODY GOES VEGETARIAN.>>Juan: THE WORST IDEA IS NO IDEA.>>Emily: ALSO HALF OF IT IS THE DELIVERY, WHEN YOU HAND THINGS OVER, I’M GOING TO RETALIATE BY EATING TEN BURGERS. AND A POSTER CHILD FOR THE HOLLYWOOD ELITIST DOUBLE STANDARD, WHICH IS ESSENTIALLY I WILL GIVE LIP SERVICE TO ALL OF THESE IDEAS BUT I WILL CARVE OUT AN EXCEPTION FOR ME AND EVERYTHING IN MY WORLD.>>Dagen: AND THE CO2 EMISSIONS, WE HAVE DONE A BETTER JOB THAN ANY NATION IN THE WORLD QUITE FRANKLY. WE ARE BACK TO THE ’85 LEVEL.>>Juan: WE ARE THE RICHEST –>>Dagen: SO STOP TALKING LIKE WE ARE NOT DOING ANYTHING.>>Jesse: UP NEXT, WINNING A DEMOCRATIC PRIMARY, SOME DEMOCRATS ARE BEING FURIOUS AFTER BEING CUT FROM NEXT WEEK’S DEBATE AND RIPPING THE DNC OVER THE PROCESS.>>SETTING THIS REQUIREMENT THAT YOU HAVE TO BE POPULAR OR FAMOUS IF YOU ARE QUALIFIED, TO ME THAT DOES A DISSERVICE TO VOTERS. SO, I THINK THAT WE CAN RAISE OUR VOICES TO CALL IN THE DNC TO BE MORE TRANSPARENT AND REASSESS HOW THEY ARE CHOOSING WHICH POLES THEY ARE USING.>>NO ONE HAS RUN A POLL OF THE DEMOCRATIC NATIONAL COMMUNITY WOULD ACCEPT FOR FIVE WEEKS. I DON’T HAVE TO CHANGE ANYTHING.>>Jesse: SO JUAN, SORE LOSERS, COMPLAINERS?>>Juan: THEY HAVE NO POINT. THE DNC HAS BEEN TRANSPARENT. THE RULES WERE SET. YOU HAD TO GET THIS NUMBER, I THINK IT WAS 130,000 SMALL DONORS, YOU HAD TO REACH 2%, I DON’T GET IT. BUT MOST PEOPLE WHO HAVE DROPPED OUT, THEY DON’T HAVE A COMPLAINT. AND THE PEOPLE WHO REMAIN, THEY ARE STILL IN LOOKING TO TRY TO MEET THOSE REQUIREMENTS TO GET IN THE OCTOBER DEBATE. I THINK THAT THEY ARE COMPLAINING.>>Jesse: JUST LIKE THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE, DON’T COMPLAIN AFTER.>>Juan: LET’S CHANGE THE RULES. [LAUGHTER]>>Emily: IT IS IRONIC THAT THE BILLIONAIRE ENVIRONMENTAL ACTIVISTS IS COMPLAINING THAT HE CAN’T BUY HIS WAY ONTO THE DNC DEBATE STAGE.>>Dagen: $320,000 A DAY, ON THE RETIREMENT. HE DOES NOT CONTROL POLITICS.>>Brian: WITH THE TIME THAT I HAVE, I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THIS, THE TOASTED GABBERT, SHE COULD’VE GOT IN A MUGGLE AGAIN, BECAUSE THE CRITERIA OF THE FINAL TWO WEEKS, AND SHE GOT STATIONED IN INDONESIA. I THINK THAT YOU SHOULD SAY, CLEARLY YOU ARE COMPETENT, YOU HAVE A LOT OF IDEAS. YOU WERE ON A ROLL, IF YOU HAVE TO SERVER TWO WEEKS, I WOULD SAY IF I WAS COMPETING WITH HER, I WOULD SAY THAT YOU ARE BLOWING THIS.>>Jesse: THEY SHOULD HAVE MADE AN EXCEPTION.>>Juan: I DON’T KNOW, THAT SOUNDS LIKE A CRANKY BABY.>>Jesse: WE ALL KNOW, BERNIE SANDERS, A LITTLE BIT OF A CROTCHETY SOCIALIST GUY, BUT HE IS TAKING THINGS TO A WHOLE NEW LEVEL, WATCH.>>I HEAR YOU CORRECTLY, SAYING THAT YOU HAVE TO CUT YOUR PILLS IN HALF YOURSELF? OKAY. WE CAN KEEP THAT DOWN A LITTLE BIT. OKAY. [LAUGHTER]>>Jesse: HE IS 100% RIGHT.>>Brian: YOU CANNOT BRING A SCREAMING BABY TO A POLITICAL EVENT. HE IS TRYING TO BE PRESIDENT.>>Jesse: YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO KISS THAT BABY.>>Brian: QUITE DOWN, SHE HAS TO CUT HER PILLS IN HALF.>>Dagen: I WANT THAT DUDE TO BE MY SIDEKICK AT EVERY RESTAURANT I GO TO.>>Jesse: THE BABY OR BERNIE?>>Dagen: BERNIE.>>Juan: HE IS NOT A I FEEL YOUR PAIN TYPE OF GUY. THIS IS SO RUDE. I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHAT TO SAY ABOUT IT.>>Jesse: STICK A PACIFIER IN HIS MOUTH.>>Emily: HE IS SUCH AN EBENEZER, WHEN IS HE GOING TO STOP BEING THE FACE OF FORWARD PROGRESSION. IT WAS NOT EVEN 30 SECONDS, IT WAS INSTANT THAT HE WAS LIKE —

Democratic Socialist convention erupts over pronouns


>>A SOCIALISM CONVENTION THIS WEEKEND DONE IT GO EXACTLY AS PLANNED. THE SELF-PROCLAIMED COMRADES GOT TOGETHER TO DEFEAT CAPITALISTS. BUT THAT EVENT DESCENDED.>>PERSONAL PRIVILEGE. GUYS, FIRST OF ALL, JAMES JACKSON FROM SACRAMENTO. I JUST WANT TO SAY, CAN WE PLEASE KEEP THE CHATTER TO A MINIMUM? I’M ONE OF THE PEOPLE THAT’S VERY, VERY PRONE TO SENSORY OVERLOAD. IT’S MAKING IT VERY DIFFICULT FOR ME TO FOCUS.>>PERSONAL PRIVILEGE. PLEASE DO NOT USE GENDERED LANGUAGE TO ADDRESS EVERYONE.>>Greg: WOW. DO KNOW WHAT THAT GUY NEEDS? HE NEEDS A DOUBLE SHOT. I DISAGREE WITH HOW YOU START THIS. THAT WENT EXACTLY AS PLANNED. THANK GOD. WHAT GREAT COMIC RELIEF. WE NEEDED THIS SEGMENT. I SALUTE THEM WITHOUT GENDERED LANGUAGE. THE WAVY ARMS, THE STUTTERING BETA MALE.>>YOU’VE GOT TO GET OUT MORE. YOU’VE GOT TO GO TO A LIBERTARIAN CONVENTION. THERE ARE 32 NATIONAL PARTIES. ALL OF THESE CONVENTIONS ARE INTERESTING, BECAUSE THEY BRING AMERICANS FROM DIFFERENT POINTS OF VIEW TOGETHER. STAY ONE THAT’S ONE POINT OF VIEW.>>GUESS WHAT, I WILL NEVER ATTEND ONE.>>Jesse: I DON’T THINK THAT WAS AN ACTUAL SOCIALIST. I THINK THAT WAS A CONSERVATIVE COMEDIAN PRETENDING TO BE A SNOWFLAKE SOCIALISTS. THERE IS NO WAY THAT COULD HAVE BEEN REAL.>>THAT WAS A SET UP.>>Greg: POINT OF PERSONAL PRIVILEGE. THAT IS REAL.>>Dana: THE ONE THING, THOUGH, I WILL PROBABLY NEVER BE ABLE TO UNDERSTAND IT. I DO THINK THERE’S SOMETHING THAT THESE GUYS ARE DOING RIGHT. THEY HAVE MORE PEOPLE IDENTIFYING WITH THEM. MAYBE NOT AFTER THEY WATCH THAT CLIP, BUT THERE’S SOMETHING HAPPENING ON THE GRASS ROOTS PERSPECTIVE. I WOULDN’T COUNT THEM OUT.>>Jesse: NOW THAT I THINK ABOUT IT, YOU HAVE SENSORY OVERLOAD PROBLEMS.>>Greg: YOU ARE A SOCIALIST.>>I HAVE SENSORY OVERLOAD.>>OVER THE WEEKEND.>>WE SHOULD SEND PEOPLE TO MARDI GRAS. HOW ABOUT THAT. THESE PEOPLE DO NOT KNOW HOW TO HAVE FUN. COULD YOU IMAGINE WORKING WITH SOMEBODY LIKE THAT IN YOUR OFFICE? I DON’T THINK THEY ACTUALLY HAVE REAL LIVES, BECAUSE NONE OF THAT STUFF AT WORK.>>WORK FROM HOME.>>WE ARE MOVING TOWARDS A SOCIETY WHERE PEOPLE ARE LOOKING TO IDENTIFY PEOPLE WITHOUT USING GENDER PRONOUNS.>>CAN’T WE JUST ASSUME SOMEONE’S IDENTITY?>>Dana: A DEBATE BETWEEN PRESIDENT TRUMP AND WHOEVER THE DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE IS. I COULD REWIND THAT 20 TIMES.>>THAT’S WHO WE ARE.>>Greg: THAT’S A DUMB IDEA. WE AREN’T TALKING ABOUT DIFFERENT PEOPLE. WE’RE JUST TALKING ABOUT A DUMB IDEA. THAT’S JUST A DUMB IDEA. SOCIALISM KILLS PEOPLE. IT KILLS MORE PEOPLE –>>Dana: GENDER PRONOUNS.>>THIS IS NOT THE PARTY OF THOMAS JEFFERSON. I CAN TELL.>>WHY DID THEY THINK THAT’S COOL? THEY KNOW THAT WE ARE ALL GOING TO HEAR THAT.>>WHY NOT? SEE WHEN HE PUT THE RAD IN COMRADE.>>Dana: BERNIE SANDERS IS NOT THE NOMINEE. WILL THEY ACTUALLY VOTE FOR A DEMOCRAT IN THE ELECTION?>>I DON’T KNOW. I THINK THE GREEN PARTY HAS MUCH MORE OF AN INFLUENCE. THE GREEN PARTY IN 2016 AGAINST HILLARY CLINTON. I’M MORE AFRAID OF THE GREEN PARTY IN TERMS OF THEIR ABILITY TO DISRUPT THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.>>Greg: YOU SHOULD BE AFRAID OF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY.>>NO I’M NOT. YOU GUYS ARE BASICALLY DOING YOURSELVES IN. IF I CAN EXPLAIN THAT YOU AND 30 SECONDS. I DON’T KNOW.

‘The Five’ react to 2020 Democrats’ climate change marathon


“THE FIVE” .” ♪ ♪>>Dana: THE WAR ON MEAT, PLASTIC STRAW MAN, THESE ARE THE EXTREME 2020 IDEAS DEMOCRATS ARE PROPOSING. CHECK OUT SOME OF THEIR OLD STATEMENTS. SPEAK OF THIS U.N. REPORT, 11 YEARS THAT WE HAVE LEFT.>>DO YOU BAN PLASTIC STRAWS?>>I THINK YOU SHOULD, YEAH.>>PEOPLE SAY WE ARE GOING TO BE OKAY IF THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE POPULATION WAS VEGETARIAN IMMEDIATELY.>>THIS IS ON PAR WITH WORLD WAR II.>>Dana: BUT THE MOST CONTROVERSIAL MOMENT OF THE NIGHT COMING FROM BERNIE SANDERS WITH THIS ANSWER ABOUT CUTTING GLOBAL POPULATION GROWTH TO FIGHT GLOBAL WARMING.>>IN MEXICO CITY AGREEMENT WHICH HE DENIES AID TO THOSE ORGANIZATIONS AROUND THE WORLD THAT ALLOW WOMEN TO HAVE ABORTIONS OR EVEN GET INVOLVED IN BIRTH CONTROL, TO ME, IS A TOTALLY ABSURD. I THINK ESPECIALLY IN POOR COUNTRIES AROUND THE WORLD, WHERE WOMEN DO NOT NECESSARILY WANT TO HAVE LARGE NUMBERS OF BABIES, AND WHERE THEY CAN HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY THROUGH BIRTH CONTROL TO CONTROL THE NUMBER OF KIDS THEY HAVE. SOMETHING I VERY, VERY STRONGLY SUPPORTED.>>Dana: LET ME PHRASE THE QUESTION HE GOT FROM THE AUDIENCE. THE PLANET CANNOT SUSTAIN THIS GROWTH, TALKING ABOUT HUMAN POPULATION. I REALIZE THIS IS A POISONOUS TOPIC FOR POLITICIANS BUT IT’S CRUCIAL TO FACE. EMPOWERING WOMEN AND EDUCATING EVERYONE ON THE NEED TO CURB POPULATION GROWTH SEEMS REASONABLE. SHE ASKS IF ANYONE WOULD BE COURAGEOUS ENOUGH TO SAY SO. BERNIE SANDERS SAID WHAT HE THOUGHT. JESSE?>>Jesse: AMAZINGLY STUPID. THANK YOU TO CNN FOR THIS CONTENT THAT WE WILL MOCK. AND I WOULD LIKE TO THANK CNN FOR ASKING SOME OF THESE FRONT RUNNER SPECIFIC QUESTIONS WHICH THEY ACTUALLY ANSWERED. FOR INSTANCE, WOULD YOU LIKE TO BAN THE COMBUSTION ENGINE? YES. NATURAL GAS DRILLING? YES. WOULD YOU LIKE TO BAN COAL? YES. GOODBYE PENNSYLVANIA, GOODBYE MICHIGAN, GOODBYE OHIO. BUT IT GOES, GETS BETTER. WOULD YOU LIKE TO BAN OFFSHORE DRILLING? YES. GOODBYE FLORIDA, GOODBYE ANY CHANCE YOU WILL EVER HAVE. BUT IT DOES GET BETTER. WOULD YOU LIKE TO BAN FACTORY FARMING? YES. GOODBYE IOWA, GOODBYE WISCONSIN. THE ANSWERS WERE STUPID AND THE QUESTIONS WERE AMAZING FOR REPUBLICANS, AND EVERYONE SHOULD THANK CNN. THE FACT THAT THEY ACTUALLY GOT ON THERE AND SAID DEPOPULATION CONTROL IS CRAZY. THAT IS WHAT THEY DO IN COMMUNIST CHINA. IT’S A DISCREDITED THEORY. IN FACT, THE SHOOTER IN THE LAST TWO MASS SHOOTINGS, HE HAS ASCRIBED TO THAT PHILOSOPHY. NOW THEY ARE ALSO SAYING WE SHOULD START EATING LESS MEAT. GET OUT OF MY KITCHEN. WHAT IS THIS? GET OFF OF MY RANCH. ALL OF THESE IDEAS ARE JUST GOING TO MAKE EVERYONE’S LIVES MISERABLE. THEY ARE GOING TO COST TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS, AND THEY ARE NOT GOING TO CHANGE THE EARTH’S TEMPERATURE 1 DEGREE.>>Dana: THAT IS A VERY GOOD POINT AND IF YOU TAKE ALL THE THINGS THEY TALKED ABOUT, MOST OF THE THINGS WOULD ACTUALLY INCREASE IN EMISSIONS OF GREENHOUSE GASES, INCLUDING IF YOU WANT TO DO AWAY WITH NUCLEAR. YOU WERE SHAKING THEIR HEADS AT THE BERNIE SANDERS LINE.>>OF COURSE BERNIE IS GOING TO TAKE THIS QUESTION, I WILL SAY IT! COME ON, WE WANT TO HELP YOU KILL YOUR CHILDREN. IT’S CRAZY. SEVEN HOURS OF THIS ON CNN? SEVEN HOURS? IT’S LIKE CNN IS A RESTAURANT THAT THE MAFIA BOUGHT AND THEY ARE BURNING IT DOWN FOR THE INSURANCE MONEY. I DON’T KNOW WHAT THEIR RATINGS WERE LIKE. THE FUTURE SEEMS SO BLEAK. COULD IT SOUND ANY WORSE? WE ALL NEED TO BE VEGETARIANS LIVING LIKE IT’S WORLD WAR II, DRINKING OUT OF STRAWS THAT DON’T WORK. GIVE ME TRUMP EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN. I DON’T WANT TO LIVE IN THIS BLEAK — IT’S LIKE “THE HUNGER GAMES.”>>Dana: DO YOU WANT TO HEAR ABOUT THE HURRICANE CONNECTION?>>Juan: I WANT TO COMMENT ON THE WHOLE THING BECAUSE I FIND THIS SUCH A DISTORTION. I CAN’T BELIEVE THE THINGS JESSE SAYS LIKE THEY ARE ATTRIBUTED THEY DIDN’T SAY THESE THINGS. THEN MICHAEL SAYS, OH, KILL BABIES. NOBODY SAID ANYTHING LIKE THAT!>>Jesse: HE SAYS HE WANTS TO BAN THE COMBUSTION ENGINE AND ELIMINATE COAL-FIRED POWER PLANTS.>>Juan: HERE IS THE HEART OF THE RESPONSE COMING FROM THIS TABLE, THE DEMOCRATS WANT TO CONTROL YOU, THEY WANT TO TAKE AWAY YOUR STRAWS! THEY DON’T WANT YOU TO EAT MEAT! OH, MY GOSH. TO ME, IT’S MIND-BOGGLING. ONE, DEMOCRATS HAVE IDEAS. A BOY, REPUBLICANS HAVE NO IDEAS WHEN IT COMES TO DEALING WITH CLIMATE CONTROL. SO REPUBLICANS SAY, THAT IDEA IS RIDICULOUS! DEMOCRATS SAY, LET’S TALK ABOUT THIS. GUESS WHAT, OVERWHELMINGLY, 80% PLUS OF DEMOCRATS AND 60% OF INDEPENDENTS SAY CLIMATE CHANGE IS A BIG ISSUE. WE WANT TO DEAL WITH IT. IT’S AN EMERGENCY. SO HERE ARE SOME OF THESE IDEAS. NONE OF THESE IDEAS ARE RADICAL, BY THE WAY.>>Jesse: BANNING FACTORY FARMING IS NOT RADICAL?>>Juan: YOU WOULD BE SURPRISED AT HOW MANY FARMERS SAY THAT FACTORY FARMING IS NOT EFFICIENT.>>Jesse: JOE BIDEN SAYS HE WANTS TO GET RID OF EVERY SINGLE –>>Juan: YOU CAN SHOUT AND KEEP TALKING OVER ME — YOU JUST TALK, TALK, TALK. KEEP TALKING BUT GO TALK TO FARMERS, AND THEY SAY THEY PREFER THERE WOULD BE LESS OF THAT FACTOR, BIG CORPORATE FARMING.>>Jedediah: YOU THINK ALL THE THINGS JESSE SAID SOUNDED CRAZY, HE REPEATED ALL THE THINGS THEY SAID. BAN PLASTIC STRAWS –>>Juan: WHAT IS SO RADICAL ABOUT BLANDING PLASTIC STRAWS?>>Jedediah: HE’S TALKING ABOUT AMERICAN TAXPAYER ABORTION NOT ONLY IN THE UNITED STATES BUT ELSEWHERE.>>Juan: IT IS ILLEGAL UNDER THE MEXICO CITY AGREEMENT. WHAT YOU GET HIS DEMOCRATIC PRESIDENT, I’M GOING BACK HERE TO CLINTON AND OBAMA BOTH SAID NO TO IT. IT’S NOT A NEW IDEA. BUSH PUT IT BACK, BUT IT’S NEVER BEEN ABOUT ABORTION. IT’S ABOUT BIRTH CONTROL.>>YOU DON’T THINK TALKING ABOUT PEOPLE TO CONVERT TO VEGANISM, Y PEOPLE TO CONVERT TO VEGANISM, U PEOPLE TO CONVERT TO VEGANISM, D PEOPLE TO CONVERT TO VEGANISM, N PEOPLE TO CONVERT TO VEGANISM, T PEOPLE TO CONVERT TO VEGANISM, I PEOPLE TO CONVERT TO VEGANISM, K BRINGING UP ABORTION IN A CONVERSATION ABOUT POPULATION CONTROL OR BANNING FRACKING AND PLASTIC STRAWS. NONE OF THIS SOUNDS EXTREME TO YOU AT ALL?>>Juan: HE DIDN’T BRING UP ABORTION, HE BROUGHT UP BIRTH CONTROL.>>Jedediah: YOU ARE THE AUDIENCE FOR THIS. THERE IS AN AUDIENCE FOR THIS.>>Juan: HUGE! YES!>>Jedediah: RIGHT NOW, IT’S SOUNDING SO EXTREME.>>Juan: I’M NOT EXTREME. IT’S NOT EXTREME.>>Jedediah: IT DOESN’T SOUND EXTREME TO A LOT OF THE COUNTRY. THAT’S SCARY.>>Jesse: DO YOU THINK BANNING THE INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE IS A RADICAL IDEA?>>Juan: YEAH.>>Jesse: THAT IS WHAT JOE BIDEN JUST SAID! HE SAID HE WANTS TO ELIMINATE IT IN HIS FIRST TERM!>>Juan: THIS IS SO OBVIOUS, I DON’T — WHAT HE WANTS TO DO IS HAVE LESS RELIANCE. IN OTHER WORDS, GO TOWARDS — THE IDEA THAT YOU WANT TO HAVE A REAL DISCUSSION ABOUT CLIMATE CHANGE IS SCARY TO YOU BECAUSE IT SHOWS YOU HAVE NO IDEAS. I HEARD YOU SAY FLORIDA, OH, FLORIDA’S GONE.

Gutfeld on Joe Biden’s new ad and his wife’s endorsement


DANA PERINO. “THE FIVE” .” WAS JOE BIDEN RELEASES HIS FIRST AD, HIS WIFE TRIES TO HELP.>>YOUR CANDIDATE MIGHT BE BETTER ON, I DON’T KNOW, HEALTH CARE THEN JOE IS BUT YOU’VE GOT TO LOOK AT WHO’S GOING TO WIN THIS ELECTION MAY BE HAVE TO SWALLOW A LITTLE BIT AND SAY OKAY, I PERSONALLY LIKE SO-AND-SO BETTER BUT YOUR BOTTOM LINE HAS TO BE THAT WE HAVE TO BEAT TRUMP.>>Greg: SWALLOW A LITTLE BIT. TALK ABOUT A RINGING ENDORSEMENT. PLEASE VOTE FOR MY HUSBAND, HE’S REALLY NOT THAT BAD. I GET IT, IT IS HARD TO NAIL TRUMP WHEN EVERYONE HAS A JOB AND THE U.S. ECONOMY IS HUMMING AND PEACE IS BREAKING OUT EVERYWHERE. WHAT IS LEFT? THE PSYCHOLOGICAL AND HYPOTHETICAL. FIRST, THE PSYCHOLOGICAL.>>RESTORE THE SOUL OF THE NATION BATTERED BY AN ERRATIC, VICIOUS, BULLYING PRESIDENT.>>Greg: [LAUGHS] BECAUSE THINGS ARE GOING WELL, THE TAG IS ABOUT AN EMOTIONAL FEELING TOWARD A PRESIDENT. COULD YOU IMAGINE ANY OTHER COUNTRY SAYING PLEASE GET RID OF OUR LEADER BECAUSE HE’S A BIG MEANIE OR COACH SAYING JOE IS TAKING US TO THE CHAMPIONSHIP BUT HE’S A JERK, SO CUT HIM. IF THIS WERE A GOOD IDEA, EVERY BRILLIANT MP WOULD BE OUT OF WORK. THE DEMS CAN’T SEPARATE TRANSFERS NARROWLY FROM HOW WELL HE RUNS THE COUNTRY. THEY CONFLATE WORDS WITH DEEDS AND THE REAL WORLD FROM THE TRUMP SHOW. IT SAVES THEM FROM HAVING TO COME UP WITH ANYTHING BETTER, WHICH THEY LACK. THERE IS NO BIG WAR BUT IF WHAT — THERE IS NO RECESSION YET BUT WHAT IF THERE WAS ONE? THE BIG RHETORICAL. IT’S BEEN ON OUR HYPOTHETICALS FOR THREE YEARS. OUT AT ANY MOMENT, UNSTABLE TRUMP COULD LEAD US SOMEWHERE REALLY BAD AS HE LEADS US TO SOMEPLACE GOOD. AS YOU SCAN THE CHOICES FOR PRESIDENT, YOU HAVE TO FEEL BAD FOR THE DEMS. THEY ARE PLAYING PIN THE TAIL ON THE DONKEY IN A ROOM FULL OF ASSES.>>Dana: THAT WILL HURT. [LAUGHTER]>>Greg: I DON’T EVEN KNOW IT IT MEANS.>>Dana: YOU’VE NEVER PLAYED THAT WESTERN MARK PIN THE TAIL ON THE DONKEY?>>Greg: I HAVE BUT I DON’T UNDERSTAND THE JOKE I MADE. THEY ARE TARGETING FEELINGS.>>Dana: THAT’S WHAT ELECTIONS ARE ABOUT. I IMAGINE THEY CHOSE ERRATIC, VICIOUS, BULLYING BECAUSE THEY WERE POLL TESTED AND FOCUS GROUPED TO DEATH IN WOMEN ARE SAYING THESE ARE THE THINGS WE CAN’T TAKE. THE ELECTABILITY ARGUMENT THAT HIS WIFE WAS USING IS THAT THAT IS USUALLY MOTIVATE PRIMARY VOTERS. IT MIGHT MOTIVATE YOU IN A GENERAL ELECTION IF YOU’RE LIKE ONE OF THE OTHER BUT A PRIMARIES LIKE YOU WANT YOUR PERSON. YOU’RE GOING TO GOT THERE AND SUPPORT THEM. SHE’S BASICALLY SAYING HE’S THE MOST ELECTABLE SO VOTE FOR HIM. IN HIS AUNT, IT IS SOMETHING DIFFERENT. HE’S TRYING TO PUSH OUT A CHARACTER CONTRAST. THE OTHER THING IS HE’S THE MOST ELECTABLE NOW UNTIL WARREN AND SANDERS, ONE OF THEM HAS TO GO. WHEN THAT COALESCES, THEN THEY WILL ALSO BE ABLE TO MAKE THE ELECTABILITY ARGUMENT.>>Greg: THEY WILL MOLD INTIMATE TWO-HEADED SOCIALIST MONSTER AND THEY WILL HAVE 30% SO THEY CAN ACTUALLY GO IN FRONT OF BIDEN.>>Jesse: I DON’T EVEN THINK IF YOU ADD THOSE TWO UP THAT IT GETS TO 30. I THINK IT’S MID-20s.>>Greg: I THINK IT’S 35.>>Jesse: I WOULD BE SURPRISED IF IT’S THAT HIGH. I THINK THERE ARE MORE MODERATES THAN THERE ARE CRAZY LEFT-WING SOCIALISTS. I AGREE WITH DANA, I THINK ELECTABILITY AND EXPERIENCE ARE OVERRATED IN POLITICS. HILLARY WAS THE MOST EXPERIENCED AND SHE LOST. BARACK OBAMA WAS THE LEAST EXPERIENCE AND HE WON. DONALD TRUMP WAS COMPLETELY ON ELECTABLE AND HE WON. YOU CAN THROW THAT OUT THE WINDOW. RIGHT NOW THE EMERGENT PUBLIC BELIEVES SOMEONE THAT’S EXPERIENCED IN WASHINGTON, D.C., JUST SEEMS LIKE AN INSIDER THAT’S BEEN THERE THEIR WHOLE LIFE. OR SOMEONE THAT’S ELECTABLE LIKE JOE IS SOMEONE THAT THE PUNDITS PREDICT IS ELECTABLE AND THE PUNDITS ARE ALWAYS WRONG, EXCEPT ME, OF COURSE. BIDEN’S BIG STRENGTHS ARE HIS ASSOCIATION WITH BARACK OBAMA AND TWO, HE’S CLINGING DESPERATELY TO THAT MODERATE LANE BY HIS FINGERNAILS. HE HAS BEEN PILING UP SO MANY GAFFES AND HAVING A LOT OF TROUBLE WITH THE SMALL DONORS AND THEY ARE TRYING TO CUT BACK HIS SCHEDULE BECAUSE HE’S TOO SLEEPY. HE’S NOT INSPIRING. HE DOESN’T DRAW ANY CROWDS. LISMORE AND HAD ABOUT 12,000 THE OTHER DAY. BIDEN I THINK HASN’T CRACKED 1,000 LAST COUPLE MONTHS. SO HE’S ALSO PROMISED TO GIVE HEALTH INSURANCE TO ILLEGAL ALIENS, ELIMINATE COAL AND NATURAL GAS AND RAISE TAXES FOR THE MIDDLE CLASS. REALLY, REALLY BODY BLOWS IF YOU LOOK AT A GENERAL ELECTION. SOMETHING HE’S GOING TO HAVE TO DEAL WITH THIS WINTER WHEN SPYGATE IS FINALLY EXPOSED, WILLIAMS. HE’S GOING TO HAVE TO ANSWER, WHAT DID HE KNOW AND WENT TO THE NOID. IF YOU KNEW ANYTHING AT ALL IF HE DIDN’T, WHERE WAS HE?>>Greg: YEAH, WILLIAMS!>>Juan: ELECTABILITY IS THE NUMBER ONE ISSUE FOR DEMOCRATS COME OUT OF THIS ANY QUESTION. CNN HAD 60% OF DEMOCRATS SAYING WE WANT SOMEONE WHO’S PROVEN IN THEIR ABILITY TO WIN AGAINST DONALD TRUMP. I THINK TRUMP IS MAD AT FOX AND FOX POLLING –>>Greg: NOT ME, JUAN.>>Katie: YOU ARE HIS NEW FAVORITE, GREG.>>Juan: HE IS MAD AT ME. AND FOX POLL AND WE HAVE FOUR PEOPLE BEATING HIM BUT THE KEY FOR DEMOCRATS IS CAN YOU BEAT TRUMP? THIS IS INTERESTING HE IS UP RIGHT NOW IN THE POLLS. BEFORE HE RAN THIS AD, HE HAD INCREASED IN THE CNN POLL BY SEVEN POINTS, NOW UP TO 29%. SANDERS AND WARREN AT LIKE 15 AND 14, ABOUT 30% OF THAT. THE KEY FOR ME IS LOOKING INSIDE THE NUMBERS AND WHEN YOU LOOK INSIDE THE NUMBERS, WHAT DO YOU SEE? MODERATES, OLD DEMOCRATS, SOME OF THE YOUNG FOLKS BUT REALLY STRONG NUMBER OF CONSERVATIVE TO MODERATE DEMOCRATS WHO ARE BACKING BIDEN. THEY SEE HIM AS THE ALTERNATIVE TO TRUMP. TRUMP IS THE BULLY, HAS THE GUY WHO WE CAN SEE IS A NICE GUY, JOE FROM SCRANTON WHO CAN TRUST AND WHO THEY THINK THIS IS GOING TO BE A REFERENDUM ON TRUMP, THAT HE ALLOWS IT TO BE A REFERENDUM ON TRUMP BECAUSE JOE IS NOT OBJECTIONABLE.>>Dana: CAN I MENTION, ALSO KAMALA HARRIS HAD HAD THAT BUMP AND THAT A COMPLETE COLLAPSE.>>Juan: THE OTHER GOOD NEWS AND THAT POLL IS FOR JULIAN CASTRO WHO IS NOW MADE THE DEBATE STAGE COME UP TO 2%. AND YOU SHOULD KNOW HE HAS PUT FORWARD AN ANIMAL WELFARE PLAN.>>Greg: FANTASTIC.>>Juan: WATCHING “THE FIVE.”>>Greg: THIS IS A PARTY, IT’S 2020, 100 YEARS AFTER WOMEN GETTING THE RIGHT TO VOTE AND THEY’RE GOING TO COALESCE BEHIND A WHITE MALE BORN IN THE 1940s.>>Katie: UNBELIEVABLE.>>Greg: THAT IS WHEN THE WAR TOOK PLACE.>>Katie: YOU SAID ELECTABILITY IS IMPORTANT, THAT’S TRUE BUT IT’S ALWAYS MISCALCULATED. ROMNEY IS AN EXAMPLE OF SOMEONE WHO BEAT BARACK OBAMA. JOE BIDEN IS NOT A NICE GUY. IT’S A MYTH THAT HE’S A NICE PLAYER ON THE FIELD. HE’S ACTUALLY PRETTY BRUTAL WHEN IT COMES TO THINGS HE SAYS ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL. IF YOU CAN’T GET AN ENDORSEMENT FROM YOUR WIFE OR ENTHUSIASTIC SUPPORT AND SHE HAS TO SAY, HIS HEALTH CARE PLAN, THE NUMBER ONE ISSUE AMONG ALL VOTERS, IT MIGHT NOT BE GOOD AS ANYONE ELSE IN THE FIELD THAT YOU SHOULD VOTE FOR HIM ANYWAY? THEY HAVE TO TALK ABOUT WHY HIS POLICIES ARE BETTER FOR DEMOCRATS IN THE COUNTRY. IF THEY ARE NOT GOING TO, ELIZABETH WARREN WELL.>>Greg: MY PREDICTION IS LIZ.>>Jesse: I THOUGHT IT WAS KAMALA.>>Greg: LIZ HAS THE ENERGY. I WILL CHANGE MY MIND FOUR TIMES FOR THE EVENING IS OVER. WHAT ABOUT YOU? HAVE YOU GOT PLANS?>>Jesse: I DON’T SEE HOW BIDEN GETS IT. I THINK WARREN RIGHT NOW HAS A LOT OF MOMENTUM.>>Juan: THE THING ABOUT HAVING THE WIFE DO IT, YOU WANT SURROGATES WHO CAN INSPIRE YOU AND UPLIFT YOU AND IT’S A LITTLE BIT OF DESPERATION. YOUR WIFE DIDN’T ENDORSE YOU.>>Dana: VACANT PLAYER DECENT AND IMPORTANT ROLE BUT WHEN YOUR FIRST STATEMENT IS HE MIGHT NOTB FIRST STATEMENT IS HE MIGHT NOTE FIRST STATEMENT IS HE MIGHT NOTA FIRST STATEMENT IS HE MIGHT NOTS FIRST STATEMENT IS HE MIGHT NOTG FIRST STATEMENT IS HE MIGHT NOTO FIRST STATEMENT IS HE MIGHT NOTD FIRST STATEMENT IS HE MIGHT NOTH FIRST STATEMENT IS HE MIGHT NOTE FIRST STATEMENT IS HE MIGHT NOTR FIRST STATEMENT IS HE MIGHT NOTS FIRST STATEMENT IS HE MIGHT NOT, FIRST STATEMENT IS HE MIGHT NOTI FIRST STATEMENT IS HE MIGHT NOT’ FIRST STATEMENT IS HE MIGHT NOTS LIKE JOE BIDEN WHEN HE’S ON STAGE.>>Greg: IT IS THE THING THAT DANA SAYS. LOOK FOR THE DOG THAT ISN’T BARKING. SHE IS TALKING. OBAMA ISN’T.>>Dana: HE’S NOT GOING TO

James Patterson on his investigation into Jeffrey Epstein


>>Dana: JEFFERY EPSTEIN’S 2008 PLEA DEAL NOW UNDER RENEWED SCRUTINY. BACK THEN, HE WAS SENTENCED 13 MONTHS FOR SOLICITING A MINOR. NOW COULD BE DIFFERENT THIS TIME. HE WAS CHARGED WITH SEX TRAFFICKING.>>CONTEMPORANEOUS WITH THE ARREST OF EPSTEIN AT TETERBORO AIRPORT, AGENTS EXECUTED A SEARCH WARRANT ON HIS MANSION IN NEW YORK CITY. EVIDENCE INCLUDING NUDE PHOTOGRAPHS OF WHAT APPEAR TO BE UNDERAGE GIRLS.>>I’M JOINED BY BEST-SELLING AUTHOR, JAMES PATTERSON THAT WROTE “FILTHY RICH, THE BILLIONAIRE’S SCANDAL.” MOST OF YOU KNOW YO FROM YOUR FICTION AND EVERY AIRPORT, THIS IS NONFICTION. WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO WRITE THIS?>>WHAT DREW ME INTO IN, NUMBER 1, I LIVE IN PALM BEACH. NOW PEOPLE ARE UPSET NOW THAT THEY HEAR THE STORY, THE INJUSTICE AND WHAT HAPPENED TO THESE KIDS. ALLEGEDLY MAYBE 100 KIDS, MAYBE MORE THAN THAT. YOUNG GIRLS. THE PEOPLE I GOT INVOLVED WITH, A JOURNALIST DOWN THERE, JOHN CONNELLY, INVOLVED WITH VANITY FAIR, THEY FELT THIS HURT AND PAIN FROM 2006. IT NEVER WENT AWAY. NEVER GOT SOLVED. THEY JUST FELT IT WAS SUCH A TERRIBLE THING. I SAID, WE ORIGINALLY WERE GOING TO DO A MOVIE. I SAID NO, I WANT A BOOK.>>Dana: SO YOU HIRED INVESTIGATORS.>>YES. THREE NASTY HEAVY DUTY PRIVATE EYES THAT WENT AROUND AND DUG UP AS MUCH AS WE COULD.>>Dana: FROM THAT –>>THIS BOOK CAME OUT IN 2016.>>Dana: 2016. YOU HAD THIS RECORDING DOWN BEFOREHAND. PEOPLE HAVE BROUGHT UP BILL CLINTON. LET ME READ YOU HIS STATEMENT. HE SAID HE’S NOT SPOKEN TO EPSTEIN IN A DECADE AND NEVER BEEN TO HIS RESIDENCE IN FLORIDA OR NEW MEXICO. YOU DID HAVE JOE LOCKHART SAYING THIS ON CNN A LITTLE BIT AGO. TALKING ABOUT THE NUMBER OF LIGHTS BEING LARGER THAN THE CLINTON SAID.>>THE CLINTON MATTER, I STAY IN TOUCH WITH THE FOUNDATION. I KNOW TO CLEAR UP THE TRIPS VERSUS THE FLIGHTS, I THINK THE NUMBER OF 26 OR 27. EACH OF THESE TRIPS AND I’VE BEEN ON MANY OF THEM WHERE YOU GO TO ASIA, AFRICA AND EACH FLIGHT IS COUNTED. EACH TRIP IS SIX OR SEVEN FLIGHTS. I KNOW MOST OF THE CLINTON CIRCLE. EPSTEIN IS NOT PART OF IT.>>Dana: AND YOU SAID IT WAS LIKE CADDIESHACK, WHERE THE GROUNDHOG PEEKS OUT. FROM THERE IN, JEFFERY WAS LIKE A GAME IN WHACK A MOLE. WAS THIS AN OPEN SECRET WHAT WAS HAPPENING IN PALM BEACH OR NEW YORK?>>NO. PEOPLE SAY THEY HAD NO IDEA, I BELIEVE THEM.>>YOU BELIEVE BILL CLINTON DIDN’T KNOW?>>ABSOLUTELY. I KNOW TRUMP DIDN’T KNOW.>>Dana: PRESIDENT TRUMP SAID –>>I’M BRINGING — FRIENDS OF MINE ARE COMING AND THEY LIVE ON THE STREET. THEY DIDN’T KNOW. WHO WOULD KNOW?>>Dana: I CAN UNDERSTAND THAT. HOW DO YOU THINK JEFFERY EPSTEIN MADE HIS MONEY?>>THAT’S ONE OF THE THINGS THAT NOBODY FIGURED OUT. HOW DID HE GET A TEACHING JOB WITH NO COLLEGE DEGREE.>>Dana: THE PRESIDENT SAID HE HAD A FALLING OUT WITH EPSTEIN. DO YOU KNOW WHAT THAT WAS ABOUT?>>THERE WERE SOME COMPLAINTS ABOUT EPSTEIN AT MAR-A-LARGO. I SPOKE TO THE HEAD OF THE SPA THERE. SHE SAID THAT — I SAID DID YOU MET EPSTEIN? SHE SAID OH, YES. HE WAS INAPPROPRIATE WITH THE WOMEN THERE. SHE SAID SHE WENT TO TRUMP AND HE THREW HIM OUT OF THE CLUB: .>>Dana: KEVIN SPACEY SAID THIS. BECAUSE YOU’VE DONE THIS INVESTIGATIVE WORK, EVEN THOUGH YOU SAY THERE’S A HUNDRED VICTIMS THAT THEY TALKED ABOUT, NONE OF THESE PEOPLE KNEW?>>I DON’T THINK THEY DID. WHY WOULD THEY? DID ANYBODY KNOW ABOUT MATT LAUER? I DOUBT IT.>>Dana: WHAT ABOUT HARVEY WEINSTEIN? PEOPLE DID KNOW ABOUT AUTHOR JAMES PATTERSON THAT WROTE “FILTHY RICH, THE BILLIONAIRE’S SEX SCANDAL.” THIS IS A NONFICTION BOOK. IN THE BREAK YOU SAID THAT YOU THINK THIS WHOLE SCANDAL IS THE WORST OF THE ME TOO MOVEMENT. WHY?>>WHATEVER HAPPENED WITH COSBY IS TERRIBLE STUFF.>>Dana: HARVEY.>>SAME THING. BUT THEY WERE ADULTS. IT’S HORRIFYING. BUT THESE ARE GIRLS. ALLEGEDLY HUNDREDS OF GIRLS. THE PALM BEACH POLICE HAD 20 –>>Dana: SO YOU HAVE THESE IN THE BOOK?>>YEAH. THE “MIAMI HERALD” DID A GREAT JOB. A LOT OF THAT WAS IN THE BOOK. THEY GOT THE GIRLS AS WOMEN. THAT’S INTERESTING IN THE BOOK, WE HAVE THE POLICE INTERVIEWS OF THEM WHEN THEY WERE KIDS AND WHAT HAPPENED. THAT’S DEVASTATING. THE POLICE HAD IT ALL. I MEAN –>>Dana: SO YOU HAVE TO PRESUME THAT ALEX ACOSTA, THAT HE HAD IT, TOO?>>FOR SURE. THAT’S WHY THE POLICE DEPARTMENT WAS BLOWN AWAY WHEN THEY HEARD — AND THEY HEARD LIKE EVERYBODY ELSE AFTER IT WAS A DONE DEAL THAT THERE WAS A DEAL. THEY’RE LIKE THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE. YOU CAN’T THROW AWAY THIS EVIDENCE.>>Dana: YOU THINK BECAUSE HE WAS SO RICH AND POWERFUL AND HE HAD THE BEST LAWYERS?>>THE RUMORS WERE, FOR WHAT THEY’RE WORTH, ONE, THAT THE PROSECUTORS WERE FRIGHTENED OF THE TEAM THAT HE PUT TOGETHER WITH DERSHOWITZ AND STARR. THEY DIDN’T WANT ANOTHER O.J. THE SECOND THING WAS, I THINK THE DEFENSE HAD SAID THAT THEY WOULD EVISCERATE THESE GIRLS ON THE STAND. THEY WERE KIDS. THEY WOULD PAINT THEM AS PROSTITUTES. IT WOULD BE A HORROR SHOW.>>Dana: THE OTHER CONTROVERSIAL THING, THE PLEA AGREEMENT IS KEPT FROM THE VICTIMS. THEY DON’T KNOW THIS IS HAPPENING.>>RIGHT.>>Dana: A BIG BONE OF CONTENTION.>>HUGE. AND THAT THEY GIVE IMMUNITY TO EVERY ONE ATTACHED. ALL THE PEOPLE OUT AFTER EPSTEIN.>>Dana: WE TALKED EARLIER IN THE FIRST BLOCK ABOUT THESE FAMOUS PEOPLE THAT KNEW EPSTEIN, MAYBE THEY DIDN’T KNOW ANYTHING. THERE WERE PEOPLE THAT WERE HELPING HIM AND THEY GOT IMMUNITY. HOW IS THAT?>>ANOTHER PART OF THE JUSTICE THAT ASTOUNDS PEOPLE AND IT SHOULD.>>Dana: WHAT IS THE MOOD IN PALM BEACH ABOUT THIS?>>INTERESTING. AFTER THE BOOK CAME OUT IN 2016, HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE SAID THANK YOU FOR WRITING THAT BOOK AS OPPOSED TO WE DON’T REALLY WANT TO HAVE THAT STORY OUT ABOUT THE TOWN. IT WASN’T ABOUT THE TOWN. NOBODY KNEW. YOU CAN’T DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT. IF ANYBODY KNOWS — I HAVE FRIENDS IN TOWN RIGHT NOW. THEY LIVE ON THE STREET. THEY DIDN’T KNOW. THEY LIVED TWO HOUSES AWAY.>>Dana: THERE’S NOBODY IN THE WORLD OF PUBLISHING THAT CAN END A STORY LIKE THIS. HOW DO YOU THINK THIS WILL END?>>IT’S NOT ACCIDENT THAT WE GOT HIM.>>Dana: HOW DO YOU THINK IT ENDS?>>I WOULD BE SURPRISED IF ACOSTA SURVIVES. I’M NOT SAYING HE DID OR DIDN’T DO HIS JOB. I’D BE SURPRISED IF HE SURVIVES THIS. I WOULD BE SURPRISED IF EPSTEIN DIDN’T SPEND A FAIR AMOUNT OF TIME IN JOB. THE THING IS, WHETHER NEW YORK HAS HIM ON THINGS IN NEW YORK RELATED. I DON’T THINK THEY’LL DO BACK

Ben Shapiro reacts to controversial image shared by Reps. Omar, Tlaib


>>Dana: THE GROWING VIEWS, TWO MEMBERS OF THE SQUAD. CONGRESSWOMAN RASHIDA TLAIB AND ILHAN OMAR AGAINST ISRAEL. THEY ARE PLANNING TO SPEAK 90 MINUTES FROM NOW ABOUT THEIR RECENT TROUBLE WITH ISRAEL BUT THEY ARE ALSO LIKELY TO GET ASKED ABOUT A VERY CONTROVERSIAL CARD TO THE NET THEY SHARED ON SOCIAL MEDIA. BEN SHAPIRO, HOST OF THE BEN SHAPIRO SHOW. A CROWD FAVORITE AND EVERYONE LOVES THAT. WE WANT TO PUT UP THIS CARTOON. CAN YOU EXPLAIN TO PEOPLE HOW OFFENSIVE THIS IS?>>IT’S NOT MERELY OFFENSIVE BECAUSE IT PAINTS HIS ARM SILENCING RASHIDA TLAIB AS THE ISRAELI FLAG AND THE IDEA IS THAT ISRAEL IS TRYING TO SILENCE THESE MUSLIM CONGRESSWOMAN BUT IT SHOWS OUT THE PERSON WHO CREATED THIS CAME SECOND IN THE HOLOCAUST DENIAL CONTEST. THERE IS A CARTOON CONTEST AND I WRONG FOR THIS THING SO IMAGINE THAT SOMEBODY ON THE RIGHT HAD TWEETED OUT A CARTOON BY A RACIST AND HAD DONE SO ANNOYING WITH THAT PERSON WAS. THERE WOULD BE APPROPRIATE BLOWBACK AND THEY ARE GETTING NONE OF THAT FROM THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA, BUT NONE OF THIS IS SURPRISING. THEY WERE GOING ON A TOUR THAT WAS RUN BY A GROUP THAT PUT UP ON ITS OWN WEBSITE, USING CHRISTIAN BLOG. IT’S POSTED ARTICLES FROM OPEN NEO-NAZI SOURCES AND THE MEDIA HAS ENCUMBERED THAT EITHER. WHEN THEY ARE IN SEARCH OF AN ERROR ON THE ON VICTIMIZE CONGRESSWOMAN AT THE NEFARIOUS JEWISH STATE THEY ARE WILLING TO OVERLOOK ALL EVIDENCE TO THE CONTRARY.>>Dana: WHAT YOU THINK THEY WILL TRY TO SAY WHEN THEY HAVE THEIR PRESS CONFERENCE?>>THE SAME STUFF THEY’VE BEEN SAYING BEFORE, ISRAEL IS A DISCRIMINATORY STATE. THIS IDEA IS SO ANTI-SEMITIC THAT NANCY PELOSI CALLED IT THAT TWO MONTHS AGO WHEN SHE WAS SPEAKING AND THAT IDEA IS A GOOD IDEA AND THAT THE STATE OF ISRAEL OUGHT TO BE DENIED FOREIGN AID BASED ON THE FACT THAT THEY WON’T ALLOW A COUPLE OF ANTI-SEMITES TO COME AND TALK ABOUT WHY ISRAEL SHOULD BE OVERTHROWN.>>Dana: LET ME MOVE ON TO THE OTHER ONE. HE MENTIONED THE MEDIA. “THE NEW YORK TIMES” SPECIFICALLY. THERE WAS A MEETING LAST WEEK AFTER THE BIG HUBBUB ABOUT THE HEADLINE THAT A LAW TO PEOPLE ON THE LEFT AND PEOPLE APPARENTLY IN THE NEWSROOM DID NOT LIKE, “THE NEW YORK TIMES” EXECUTIVE EDITOR BROUGHT EVERYBODY TOGETHER ON SOMETHING LEAKED FROM THAT MEETING. IT WAS BASICALLY A TRANSCRIPT IN WHICH HE TALKS ABOUT THE OUTLETS COVERAGE OF TRUMP AND HE SAID IT WENT FROM BEING A STORY ABOUT WHETHER THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN HAD COLLUDED WITH RUSSIA AND OBSTRUCTION OF JUSTICE FOR BEING A MORE HEAD-ON STORY ABOUT THE PRESIDENTS CHARACTER. WE BUILD OUR NEWSROOM TO COVER ONE STORY AND WE DID ACTUALLY WELL AND NOW WE HAVE TO REGROUP AND CHECK THE RESOURCES AND EPHESUS TO TAKE ON A DIFFERENT STORY IN THE STORE THEY WANT TO COVER IS HOW AMERICA HAS BECOME SO DIVIDED UNDER PRESIDENT TROUT. THE PRESIDENT TWEETING “THE NEW YORK TIMES” WILL BE OUT OF OFFICE AFTER HE LEAVES OFFICE IN SIX YEARS AND HE SAID BECAUSE OF THAT HE IS CERTAIN THEY WILL ENDORSE HIM IN ORDER TO KEEP IT ALL GOING. WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO REPORTING WHATEVER THE NEWS IS? WHY DO YOU HAVE TO HAVE A VISION?>>THAT WOULD BE A NICE THING ABOUT THE FACT THAT “THE NEW YORK TIMES” IS DECIDING WHAT NARRATIVE TO SELL TO THE PUBLIC RIGHT BEFORE THE ELECTION — THIS IS AN ACTIVIST ORGANIZATION. I DON’T KNOW HOW THEY REPORT TO BE A NEWS ORGANIZATION WHEN THEY ARE EXPLICITLY STATING FOR THEIR NEXT NARRATIVE WILL BE ABOUT THE DIVISIVE NATURE OF PRESIDENT TRUMP AND HIS RACISM AS OPPOSED TO THE TRUMP AND RUSSIA STUFF. WHEN YOU DESIGN YOUR NEWSROOM AROUND TAKING SOMEONE DOWN, THAT IS MEDIA MATTERS. I GUESS “THE NEW YORK TIMES” AND THE MEDIA MATTERS ARE ONE AND THE SAME NOW.>>Dana: THERE ARE DAYS WHEN YOU WAKE UP AND YOU FIND THAT YOU YOURSELF ARE TRENDING ON TWITTER AND THERE WAS SOME BACKLASH LAST WEEK AFTER YOU SEND THIS. IF YOU HAD TO WORK MORE THAN ONE JOB TO HAVE A ROOF OVER YOUR HEAD OR FOOD ON THE TABLE YOU PROBABLY SHOULDN’T HAVE TAKEN A JOB THAT IS NOT PAYING ENOUGH. TAKING OUT OF CONTEXT AND CONGRESSWOMAN SP 13 TWEETED THIS TO YOU. ONE OF THE MOST MANIPULATIVE WRITERS IS SAYING IT’S A CHARACTER FLAW, PEOPLE AREN’T DUMB OR INFERIOR NOR ARE THEY KNOWING WHY INSULIN COST $300, CORRUPTION IS THERE AND I THOUGHT I WOULD GIVE YOU A CHANCE TO SET THE RECORD STRAIGHT.>>THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO ARE SCORNED FOR WORKING PEOPLE THINKS THAT WORKING PEOPLE WITH A PATH TOWARD UPWARD MOBILITY AND AOC IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE LOSS OF 25,000 JOBS IN NEW YORK CITY AND TALKING ABOUT HOW SHE STANDS UP FOR WORKING PEOPLE. IF THE JOBS YOU TAKE IN A FREE SOCIETY ARE THE JOBS YOU CHOOSE TO TAKE IN A FREE SOCIETY. KAMALA HARRIS WAS SAYING WE NEED TO DRASTICALLY RESTRUCTURE ALL AMERICAN ECONOMIC SO DON’T HAVE TO WORK TWO JOBS IN MY POINT IS THAT WE’LL HAVE TO MAKE DECISIONS ABOUT OUR JOBS AND THINK WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO DO SO. THAT IS WHAT ALLOWS US TO TO GET AHEAD. I HAVE NOTHING BUT RESPECT FOR PEOPLE TO WORK TWO JOBS, ENCOURAGE EVERYBODY TO WORK AS MANY JOBS AS THEY WANT TO GET AHEAD.>>Dana: I THINK YOUR POINT WAS THAT YOU CAN’T EXPECT THE GOVERNMENT TO SET THE WAGE BECAUSE THAT HAS PROVEN NOT TO WORK.>>IT’S ALSO IRRITATING. WHEN KAMALA HARRIS AND AOC SUGGEST — THEY WILL MAGICALLY BE ABLE TO MAKE A $17 DROP WORTH $25 AN HOUR JOB AND THEY ARE LYING TO YOU BECAUSE THEY WANT POWER AND YOUR MONEY AND THEY WILL GET BOTH OF THEM IF YOU

Trump accuses NYT of ‘racism witch hunt’ after leaked meeting


♪ ♪>>Katie: “THE NEW YORK TIMES” LAST OF HER BIAS AFTER A LEAKED TRANSCRIPT REVEALED ITS NEW PLAN TO GO AFTER PRESIDENT TRUMP. THE PAPER’S EXECUTIVE EDITOR FORCED TO HOLD A CRISIS TOWN HALL MEETING AFTER LIBERAL BACKLASH FOR CHANGING A HEADLINE ABOUT RECENT SHOOTINGS FROM “TRUMP URGES TRIGGER UNITY “TRUMP URGES TRIGGER UNIT” “TRUMP URGES TRIGGER UNITT “TRUMP URGES TRIGGER UNITO “ASSAILING HATE BUT NOT GUNS.” THE EDITORS THING WE BUILD OUR NEWSROOM TO COVER ONE STORY AND WE DID ACTUALLY WELL BUT AFTER RUSSIAN COLLUSION FELL APART, THE EDITOR SAYS THAT EDITOR’S FOCUSING ON A NEW ISSUE. REGROUP AND TAKE ON A DIFFERENT STORY. THE TRANSCRIPT IS REVIEWING BUT IT SOLIDIFIED WHAT WE ARTIE KNEW.>>Jesse: WAS REVEALING, THEY ARE NOT AS INFLUENTIAL AS THEY THINK THEY ARE AND THEY ADMITTED THEY ARE PARTISAN ACTIVISTS. REAL JOURNALISTS WOULD LOOK, HOW DO THEY RUSH A HOAX COME INTO BEING? THEY ARE SPENDING OUR TIME LOOKING BACK. THEY HAVE TURNED A BLIND EYE TO IT AND THEY ARE NOW LOOKING AT WHAT ELSE CAN TAKE OUT TRUMP. RACE I DON’T BELIEVE WE’LL HAVE THE SAME TYPE OF EFFECT AGAINST THE PRESIDENT AS THEY WERE SHOVING DEBORAH YOU CAN SEE THE RATINGS FOR THE CABLES THAT PUSHED THAT HULKS ARE NOT REBOUNDING AS THEY APPROVE IT TO RACE. APPROVAL FOR DONALD TRUMP AMONG HISPANICS AND BLACK AMERICANS SINCE JANUARY HAS ACTUALLY GONE UP. IT’S ALSO NOT A VERY INSPIRING MESSAGE TO SAY THAT THE COUNTRY IS FOUNDED ON RACISM, IT’S A RACIST NATION, AND WE NEED TO DESTROY IT AND INSTITUTE SOCIALISM IN ORDER TO HEAL IT. THAT TYPE OF MESSAGING TO THIS COUNTRY IS RACIST AND THAT TRUMP IS RACIST AT ALL TRUMP VOTERS ARE RACIST ARE GOING TO TURN OFF THE VERY VOTERS THAT THE DEMOCRATS ARE GOING TO NEED TO RECAPTURE THOSE RUST BELT DISTRICTS IN ORDER TO WIN BACK THE WHITE HOUSE. RACE ISN’T GOING TO WORK. IT’S GOT TO BE HEALTH CARE, EDUCATION, AS JUAN SAID, AND JOBS.>>Katie: JUAN, YOU LOOK LIKE YOU HAVE SOMETHING TO SAY.>>Juan: WE DO, YOUR HONOR. I WANT TO SEE MY TIME TO MR. WATTERS. RUSSIA HOAX. DID YOU MISS THE ENTIRE MUELLER REPORT THAT SAID RUSSIA INTERFERED IN THE 2016 — THERE WAS NO FINDING OF ANY COLLUSION, NO INVESTIGATION. IT WAS A INVESTIGATION TO CONSPIRACY.>>Katie: AS A JOURNALIST, DO YOU THINK THIS TYPE OF CONVERSATION –>>Juan: I SAID THAT I WOULD SEE THE POINT TO JESSE BECAUSE I THINK HE IS INDICTING HIMSELF.>>Katie: AS A JOURNALIST FOR MANY YEARS, DO YOU THINK THESE CONVERSATIONS ABOUT ACTIVISM ARE APPROPRIATE?>>Juan: I THINK YOU LOOK AT THE NUMBERS. WE HAD A POLL AT FOX THAT SAID TWO-THIRDS OF AMERICANS THINK HE’S TEARING THE COUNTRY APART. THAT INCLUDES MORE THAN 60% OF WHITE AMERICANS. SOMETHING IS GOING ON IN TERMS OF THE SOCIAL FABRIC, AND IF YOU’RE A JOURNALIST, HOW COULD YOU NOT PAY ATTENTION TO IT. TO MY MIND, YOU KNOW IT’S LIKE THIS IS NOT A NEW TOPIC FOR THE TIMES. “THE TIMES” HAVE BEEN COVERING IT. THIS IS SOMETHING THEY NEED TO DO. I THINK WHAT YOU HEAR IS WE PUT A LOT OF EFFORT INTO COVERING MUELLER AND THE CONSPIRACY ARGUMENT, JESSE, AND I THINK THEY DID A PRETTY GOOD JOB. THEY WERE WAY AHEAD OF OTHER PEOPLE SAYING — I THINK THEY WERE AHEAD OF SAYING, AHEAD OF ALL THOSE PEOPLE THE OTHER CHANNELS FEEDING THIS CONSPIRACY. THEY WERE NOT IN THAT CAMP.>>Jesse: THE OTHER CHANNELS FOLLOW EVERYTHING WRITTEN IN THE TIMES.>>Greg: THE CONSPIRACY IS THAT THEY ARE CREATING A FRAMEWORK TO SHAPE THE NEWS TO LAY OUT A BLUEPRINT SO THAT YOU CAN SLOT IN THE STORIES ABOUT RACE. THE POLLS SAY THEY THINK TRUMP IS TEARING THE COUNTRY APART, IT’S IRRELEVANT. IT’S THE MEDIA THAT’S CREATING THE NARRATIVE THAT PEOPLE HEAR ABOUT. THE FACT IS THE CURTAIN IS PULLED BACK. WE SEE THIS AND WE ARE SURPRISED. THE MEDIA SMIRKS BECAUSE IT’S BEEN THIS WAY ALL ALONG. RACISM IS A QUANTITY WHERE IN THE DO — THE MEDIA, THE DEMAND EXCEEDS THE SUPPLY. THE SLEEVE ARTICLE, I DIDN’T READ IT BUT I ASSUME IT WAS WELL-RESEARCHED, PROBABLY WELL DONE BUT I DIDN’T READ IT. MY ASSUMPTIONS ARE THIS IS ALL PART OF A GREATER NARRATIVE TO PAINT DONALD TRUMP AS RACIST. I’M GOING TO LOOK AT EVERYTHING THEY DO HAS SOMEHOW ARTIFICIALLY CONSTRUCTED TO DEMONIZE SOMEBODY, AND IT’S NOT GOING TO STOP. IT’S GOING TO GET WORSE WE HAVE TO ADMIT THIS COUNTRY OVERTIME GETS LESS RACIST. DO YOU THINK WE ARE LESS RACIST NOW THAN THEY ’60s WERE ’50s OR 1860s? IT’S GETTING BETTER BUT THEY DON’T LIKE THAT STORY. THINGS ARE GOING SO WELL THAT THEY NEED TO DEMONIZE EVERYBODY. THIS IS BIGGER THAN WATERGATE.>>Juan: I THINK THINGS ARE GETTING BETTER IN TERMS OF RACE. IF I COMPARE WHERE MY FATHER WAS TO WHERE I AM, I DON’T THINK THERE’S ANY QUESTION. BUT I WILL SAY, LOOK.>>Greg: AND YOUR POINT THERE.>>Juan: ANYONE WHO’S COVERED TRUMP KNOWS HE’S HAD TROUBLE WITH THE RACE ISSUE ALL ALONG. FEDERAL SUITS ABOUT HOUSING DISCRIMINATION, THE BIRTHER MOVEMENT. I COULD GO ON. I WROTE A BOOK ABOUT THIS A YEAR AGO. THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH SOMEHOW IT SUDDENLY DISCOVERING DISCOVERING — IT’S BEEN AN ISSUE WITH TRUMP.>>Greg: IF YOU TAKE EACH OF THOSE SEPARATELY, THEY ADD UP TO VERY LITTLE.>>Dana: ON THE RUSSIA THING, A LOT OF PEOPLE THAT WERE GOOD NEWS, IT WAS A LOT OF TIME, ALWAYS HINTING THAT TRUMP WAS BEHIND IT. THE PODCAST, THE THINGS THEY DI DID. I THINK THERE IS A GENERATIONAL CHANGE IN THE NEWSROOM. THERE IS A GENERATIONAL CHANGE WERE NOW I THINK IT’S PARTLY BECAUSE OF THE WAY UNIVERSITIES TRAIN JOURNALISTS NOW THAT THEY ARE ACTIVISTS AND INSTEAD OF REPORTING THE NEWS. NEWS ORGANIZATIONS USE TO BE WORRIED THEY MIGHT MAKE THEIR ADVERTISERS MAD. HE WORKED IN MAGAZINES, RIGHT? THEY ARE NOT GOING TO LIKE TO SEE THAT ARTICLE NEXT TO THE PICTURE OF THEIR GREAT PRODUCT FOR THAT WAS THEIR WORRY. NOW THEY ARE WORRIED ABOUT THEIR OWN REPORTERS. JUST REPORT THE NEWS. BASHING THE MEDIA IS A BIPARTISAN SUPPORT. WHERE IS BERNIE SANDERS, FIGURING OUT A WAY TO GET HIS BASE ENERGIZED, BASH THE MEDIA.>>Greg: “NEW YORK TIMES” IS NO DIFFERENT THAN MEDIA MATTERS. THEY ARE BOTH PUSHING AN AGENDA, POLITICAL, IDEOLOGICAL AGENDA.

‘The Five’ reacts to Trump and Scaramucci trading blows


>>MORE WORDS HEATING UP BETWEEN ANTHONY SCAR A USUALLY ANTHONY SCARAA USUALLY ANTHONY SCARAMUUSUALLY ANTHONY SCARAMUCCUALLY ANTHONY SCARAMUCCIALLY ANTHONY SCARAMUCCI ALY ANTHONY SCARAMUCCI AND PRESIDENT TRUMP AFTER TRUMP’S VISIT TO EL PASO.>>I THINK YOU HAVE TO CONSIDER A CHANGE AT THE TOP OF THE TICKET WHEN SOMEONE IS ACTING LIKE THIS.>>THE MINUTE YOU SAY SOMETHING HE DOESN’T LIKE, HE FIGURES HE CAN INTIMIDATE YOU LIKE A BULLY. THERE IS PAPER THERE IS AAPER THERE IS A EER THERE IS A EVIL TO DIVIDE THE COUNTRY.>>AND TRUMP’S WORDS BACK. HE HAS TWEETED:>>DANA?>>SO NOW SCARAMUCCI IS ON TV. HE’S ON TV A LOT.>>I TALKED TO SCARAMUCCI. HE SAID ONE OF THE THINGS HE’S UPSET ABOUT IS THE CRITICISM THAT GO BACK. DO YOU THINK THERE IS MORE TO IT?>>I DON’T KNOW. THIS IS, THESE ARE BOTH PEOPLE THAT ARE QUITE LIKEABLE ON TV. TRUMP AND SCARAMUCCI. THE MOOCH WAS NOT FOR TRUMP IN 2016. THEN WAS FOR TRUMP AND NOW ISN’T FOR TRUMP. I DON’T KNOW, MAYBE IT’S SIN SKIER. I THINK THEY COULD POTENTIALLY PATCH THINGS UP IN THE NEXT SIX MONTHS. WOULDN’T THAT BE A REUNION. SCARAMUCCI HAS POINTED OUT THEY MAY HAVE TO REPLACE HIM. DO YOU KNOW HE FOLLOWED TODAY ON TWITTER? MARK STANFORD. FORMER REPUBLICAN FROM SOUTH CAROLINA. HE HAS HIS TOE IN THE WATER.>>SINCE HE MARRIED THE TWEET NOW SAYING THE 2020 CHALLENGE, THAT D. THAT END THEM GETTING BACK TOGETHER THERE.>>I THINK, I THINK THE REAL HOUSEWIVES THING DIDN’T PAN OUT. SCARAMUCCI GOT THE BUG, THE FILM BUG. THE SPOTLIGHT BUG THAT THE MONEY CAN’T SATISFY. HE’S LIKE A MEERKAT. HE SEES THE SPOT LIGHT, THE MEERKATS PICK UP. THAT’S THE MOOCH. I HAVE A SPORTS ANALOGY, YOU WON’T GET IT MAYBE JUAN. DONALD TRUMP IS THE AL DAVIS AS PRESIDENT. HE RAN THE OAKLAND RAIDERS IN THE 70s. HE HAS A MOTTO “WIN BABY.” HE ATTRACTED ROUGH, SCARY AND WEIRD PEOPLE. THAT WAS THE ENTIRE OAKLAND RAIDERS. YOU GET THESE WEIRD THIRD STRINGERS. NOT THE BEST JUDGMENT CALLS ON TRUMP’S PART. THEY GET IN UNDER THE GUYS OF LOYALTY AND IF IT DOESN’T TURN OUT THEY TURN ON YOU.>>I WAS THINKING THIS EARLIER. ONLY THE BEST PEOPLE BY THE WAY. AMAROSE SAID HE WAS A LOW LIFE. AND THEN HE CALLED HER A DOG. I DON’T KNOW BUT REX TILLERSON SAID HE WAS A MORON. THIS IS REMORSE, BUYER’S REMORSE FOR PEOPLE WHO WANTED IN ON THE POWER DEAL, VISIT THE WHITE HOUSE, THE TITLE AND IMPORTANT JOB. THEY GOT THE JOB BUT AT SOME POINT THEY’RE LIKE, MAYBE THIS WASN’T A GOOD IDEA SCARAMUCCI, WHAT IS INTERESTING –>>HE GOT FIRED FOR DOING THAT STUPID DRUNKEN PHONE CALL.>>TO A MEMBER OF THE PRESS.>>LEAKING.>>I SAY DRUNK IN NOT SAYING WHAT I REALLY THINK HE’S ON.>>SCARAMUCCI, WHAT YOU SAY NOW IS TRUE WHY WASN’T IT TRUE BEFORE YOU TOOK THE JOB? HE WENT AFTER McCAIN, HE WENT AFTER MEXICO.>>I THINK SCARAMUCCI THOUGHT HE COULD HELP. HE WAS GOING TO GO INTO COMMUNICATIONS –>>THEY ALL THINK THAT, DANA. TILLERSON THOUGHT THAT MANY.>>SCARAMUCCI TURNED ON HIM NOT TRUMP TURNING ON SCARE A PHAOUFP TRUMP TURNING ON SCARE A PHAOUFS TRUMP TURNING ON SCARE A PHAOUFA TRUMP TURNING ON SCARE A PHAOUFU TRUMP TURNING ON SCARE A PHAOUFC TRUMP TURNING ON SCARE A PHAOUF.>>SCARAMUCCI WANTS AND NEEDS ATTENTION. IT’S CHILLY AND COLD IN THE SHADE WHEN YOU’RE IGNORED BY THE MEDIA. HOW DO YOU GET THAT BIG RAY OF SUNSHINE TO SHINE ON YOU FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP? PRESIDENT TRUMP TOOK THE BAIT. HE TOOK THE BAIT. HE FIRED BACK AT HIM IMMEDIATELY. I WILL POINT THIS OUT. ANTHONY SCARAMUCCI SUPPORTED OBAMA IN 2008. HE WENT TO LAW SCHOOL. THEN HE FLIPPED AND SUPPORTED MITT ROMNEY. HATED ON PRESIDENT TRUMP AND THEN SUPPORTED HIM. HIS FINNINGER IS IN THE AIR, HE’S LOOKING WHICH WAY THE WIND IS BLOWING.

A$AP Rocky pleads not guilty in high-profile Swedish case


ONE OTHER CASE. AMERICAN RAPPER ASAP ROCKY, HE IS BEING HELD IN SWEDEN. THIS CASE IS MOVING REALLY FAST AND IT FREAKED ME OUT. LET ME READ TO YOU HIS TWEET. HE SAID, VERY DISAPPOINTED AND THE PRIME MINISTER TO BE UNABLE TO ACT. WE HAVE LET OUR AFRICAN-AMERICAN COMMUNITY DOWN. HE WAS BEING FOLLOWED AND HARASSED BY TROUBLEMAKERS. TREAT AMERICANS FAIRLY. THIS ALSO — THIS JUSTICE SYSTEM, THEY ARE SAYING POLITICS HAS NO ROLE HERE. THEY WANT THE JUSTICE SYSTEM TO WORK. WE CAN EXPECT A CONVICTION BY FRIDAY.>>WHAT ABOUT AN ACQUITTAL? THANK YOU LEE FOR THIS PERSON THAT’S BEEN GOING FAST BECAUSE HE HAS BEEN LOCKED UP THE WHOLE TIME. HE NEEDS A RESOLUTION. I EXPECT IF HE IS CONVICTED, OUR PRESIDENT MIGHT GET MORE HEAVY-HANDED.>>Dana: YOU ARE RIGHT. IT COULD BE A ACQUITTAL AND HE IS BEING HELD. THERE’S BEEN SOME DISPUTE ON HOW HE’S BEEN TREATED.>>CERTAINLY THERE’S BEEN TALK ABOUT THE INHUMANE CONDITIONS AND IF THIS HAPPENED IN NEW YORK FOR EXAMPLE YOU WOULD HAVE THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE HEARD. HE IS NOT A FLIGHT RISK. THERE IS NO SYSTEM OF BAIL. AGAIN, FUNDAMENTAL DUE PROCESS. HE WAS ARRESTED JULY 5TH AND HE ENTERED HIS PLEA OF NOT GUILTY JULY 25TH. HE IS ON TRIAL NOW. NO DISCOVERY THAT WE KNOW OF, WE DON’T KNOW JUSTIFICATIONS. DOES HE GET IMMUNITY? THERE IS NO JURY SYSTEM AS I UNDERSTAND. IT’LL FOCUS BEFORE A JUDGE AND TALK ABOUT A ROCKET DOCKET, MY GOD.>>Dana: I WAS SURPRISED ABOUT HOW QUICKLY THESE CASES ARE MOVING AND I WANT TO NOTE, HE IS SUPPOSED TO HEADLINE A MUSIC FESTIVAL IN SEPTEMBER AND YOU CAN IMAGINE HIS FANS WANT HIM TO COME HOME AND THEY WANT HIM TO BE HERE AND WHAT A CELEBRATION THAT WILL BE.>>HE SHOULD BE ABLE TO MAKE IT. THIS IS NOT THE CASE OF THE CENTURY. HE SHOULD NOT BE IN JAIL.>>IN NEW YORK THIS CASE WOULD HAVE BEEN DISMISSED. INTERESTING POINT, A BROKEN BOTTLE MADE THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WHETHER HE GOES TO JAIL

‘The Five’ on Biden being pressed on past controversies


♪ ♪>>Dana: HELLO EVERYONE, I AM DANA PERINO, 5:00 IN NEW YORK CITY, THIS IS “THE FIVE” .” THE BATTLE FOR 2020 GETTING UP NOW THAT JOE BIDEN HAS OFFICIALLY ENTERED THE RACE. PRESIDENT TRUMP GOING ON THE ATTACK AGAINST THE FORMER VICE PRESIDENT AND DEMOCRATIC FRONT RUNNER.>>HE IS NOT THE BRIGHTEST LIGHT BULB IN THE GROUP, HE IS NOT GOING TO BE ABLE TO DEAL WITH PRESIDENT GEE, THAT’S A DIFFERENT LEVEL OF ENERGY AND FRANKLY, INTELLIGENCE.>>I CAN’T BELIEVE IT, I AM A YOUNG, VIBRANT MAN. I LOOK AT JOE, I DON’T KNOW ABOUT HIM. I DON’T KNOW.>>Dana: BIDEN RETURNING FIRE TODAY ON “THE VIEW.”>>THE BEST WAY TO JUDGE ME IS WATCH, C. I HAVE THE ENERGY AND THE CAPACITY. THIS IS SHOW ME BUSINESS.>>SO YOU AREN’T SLEEPY JOE?>>THAT IS THE FIRST TIME I’VE EVER BEEN REFERENCED THAT WAY BY ANYONE ELSE.>>Dana: HE WAS ALSO ASKED ABOUT CONTROVERSIES THAT COULD HURT HIM IN THE PRIMARIES INCLUDING ALLEGATIONS OF VIOLATING PERSONAL SPACE AND HIS TREATMENT OF ANITA HILL.>>ARE YOU PREPARED TO APOLOGIZE TO THOSE WOMEN?>>I AM REALLY SORRY IF WHAT I DID, IF, IN FACT, THEY TOOK IT A DIFFERENT WAY. SORRY I INVADED YOUR SPACE, I AM SORRY THIS HAPPENED.>>YOU REACHED OUT TO ANITA HILL AND EXPRESSED SOME REGRET TO HER ABOUT THE WAY YOU BEHAVED BACK IN 1991.>>IN TERMS OF — IF YOU GO BACK AND LOOK AT WHAT I SAID AND DIDN’T SAY, I DON’T THINK I TREATED HER BADLY. SPEAK TO THE PRESENT IS NOT WAITING WASTING ANY TIME, HE IS JUST GOI WASTING ANY TIME, HE IS JUST GOG TO GO FOR IT RIGHT AWAY.>>Jesse: THE SLEEPY THING DEFINITELY STICKS, I DIDN’T REALIZE HOW SLEEPY HE WAS UNTIL HE ANSWERED QUESTIONS ABOUT HIM BEING SLEEPY. THERE IS GOING TO BE AN ISSUE FOR JOE AND I DON’T THINK HE WILL HAVE THE TEMPERAMENT OR THE PALLET TO HANDLE IT. HE’S NOT USED TO BEING THE FRONT RUNNER OR USED TO BEING ATTACKED FROM THE LEFT AND HE’S NOT USED TO TOUGH QUESTIONS FROM THE MEDIA. HE IS PRIVILEGED, WHITE, STRAIGHT, CHRISTIAN MALE IN THIS PRIMARY, THERE’S GOING TO BE MOMENTS EITHER IN THE DEBATE OR ON THE TRAIL WHERE HE IS GOING TO GET ATTACKED AND HE IS GOING TO SNAP AND HE’S GOING TO LOSE BECAUSE HE IS FRUSTRATED AND DOESN’T KNOW HOW TO HANDLE HIMSELF. THOSE WILL BE THE DEFINING MOMENTS WHEN PEOPLE ATTACK HIM. THE OTHER PROBLEM IS MEDIA, BARACK OBAMA HAD 100% MEDIA SUPPORT. BIDEN IS NOT GOING TO HAVE THAT. YOU’VE SEEN NOW, “THE DAILY BEAST” WHICH IS A TRADITIONAL PARTISAN ATTACK RAGGED, THEY HAVE A STORY SAYING OUT THIS WAS A BUMBLING AND STUMBLING INTERVIEW. HE NEEDS TO CONSOLIDATE MEDIA SUPPORT BECAUSE RIGHT NOW HIS OPPONENTS ARE DUMPING ALL THE TRADITIONAL MEDIA PLACEMENTS, THESE ONLINE PUBLICATIONS, THEY DON’T LIKE HIM ANYWAY BECAUSE HE’S TOO MODERATE AND CABLE NEWS I BELIEVE EVERYBODY KNOWS ON CABLE THAT JOE BIDEN IS AN OVERRATED CANDIDATE THAN THEY ARE GOING TO BUILD THEM UP AND TEAR HIM DOWN AND YOU JUST WATCH.>>Dana: LET ME PLAY THIS FOR YOU, TALK ABOUT WHAT JESSIE SAID AND ALSO HOWARD DEAN’S POINT.>>THIS PARTY HAS BEEN TAKEN OVER BY 35-YEAR-OLDS, THE PEOPLE WHO WON THE RACES ARE 35 YEARS OLD AND THEY ARE MOSTLY CENTRISTS. THEY GET ALL THE PRESS. THERE IS 37 PEOPLE THAT COME FROM ORANGE COUNTY, TEXAS, OKLAHOMA, KANSAS. THAT’S WHERE WE PICKED UP THE SEATS.>>I DON’T KNOW WHAT HE WAS TALKING ABOUT THERE. IT WAS LIKE HE WAS MAD THAT THEY WERE YOUNG. I JUST REALIZED, HE SCRAMBLED MY BRAIN. THE PROBLEM WITH JOE BIDEN IS THAT HE’S BEEN AROUND FOR A LONG, LONG TIME AND THERE IS NO DEFINING POSITIVE ACHIEVEMENT HE CAN .2. HE IS LIKE THAT CHARACTER ON TV SHOW THAT’S THERE ALL THE TIME, GUNTHER ON FRIENDS, THE PARIS STEP. HE’S IN EVERY SINGLE EPISODE BUT THERE’S NO IMPACT. HE IS THE GUENTHER CANDIDATE, HE IS LIKE YOUR TONSILS. IF THEY’RE NOT THERE YOU’RE NOT GOING TO MISS YOUR TONSILS, DANA. THIS IS A BATTLE BETWEEN PHYSICAL EVIDENCE AND PSYCHOLOGICAL EFFECT. TRUMP OFFERS THE PHYSICAL EVIDENCE OF ACHIEVEMENT, JOBS, GREAT ECONOMY, GDP, STRONGER MILITARY. BIDEN OFFERS THE PSYCHOLOGICAL STRATEGY. TRUMP MAKES YOU FEEL BAD. BUT THE PROBLEM IS IT WON’T WORK BECAUSE YOU DON’T HAVE TO LIKE TRUMP TO VOTE FOR HIM, YOU DON’T. WE’VE GONE PAST THE IDEA OF PERSONALITY AND WE ARE NOW LOOKING AT THE PRACTICAL ELEMENTS OF AN ADMINISTRATION AND IT’S REALLY AN AWESOME TIME IN HISTORY TO HAVE A PRESIDENT WHO LIKES TO PARTICIPATE LIKE AMERICA’S HECKLER. YOU’RE JUST GOING TO GO ON FOR TWO YEARS, TRUMP IS GOING TO BE AMERICA’S HECKLER AND IT’S GOING TO BE KIND OF FUN.>>Dana: WE LISTEN TO ANOTHER PIECE TO WHAT GREG WAS JUST SAYING, JOE BIDEN ABOUT AMERICANS COMING BACK.>>AMERICA IS COMING BACK LIKE WE USED TO BE. ETHICAL, TELLING THE TRUTH, MOVING IT AWAY. ALL THOSE GOOD THINGS.>>Dana: IS THAT THE RATIONALE FOR HIS PRESIDENCY, THAT HE IS GOING TO BRING US BACK TO ALL THE THINGS WE JUST SAID, IS THAT THE GOAL?>>Juan: HE WANTS TO GET US BACK AWAY FROM WHAT GEORGE CONNOLLY HAS NOW CALLED “DERANGED DONALD.” HE’S GOING TO BRING US BACK TO CIVILITY, HONEST KINDS OF CONVERSATIONS, NOT RACIAL DIVISION, NOT BULLYING PEOPLE. YOU KNOW WHAT I THINK YOU ARE MISSING HERE, THE BIG NEWS OF THE DAY IS JOE BIDEN RAISING $6.3 MILLION IN 24 HOURS WHICH WAY EXCEEDS MY EXPECTATIONS, I DIDN’T THINK HE WAS CAPABLE OF IT BECAUSE A LOT OF IT CAME FROM SMALL DONORS WHO FUELED BERNIE SANDERS AND I HAD THE IMPRESSION THAT JOE BIDEN IS — HAS NEVER BEEN A GREAT FUND-RAISER, WOULD BE ABLE TO GO AT IT IN THIS WAY. HE DID. DONALD TRUMP GOING AT HIM AS SLEEPY OR TIRED OR DUMB, IT’S JUST NOT TRUE. HE IS INTELLIGENT — LET ME FINISH. HE IS AN INTELLIGENT MAN. I THINK MOST AMERICANS KNOW THAT AND WHEN YOU SEE HIM ON “THE VIEW” TODAY, HE’S TALKING ABOUT HIS SON AND WHEN HE STARTS TO CRY IN FRONT OF A MOSTLY FEMALE AUDIENCE, HE COMES ACROSS AS GENUINE, AUTHENTIC, CONNECTING WITH WOMEN IN A WAY DONALD TRUMP COULDN’T DREAM OF. I KNOW JOE BIDEN, I’VE DEALT WITH HIM. JOE BIDEN WAS IN THE SENATE. SIX TIMES SENT TO THE SENATE BY THE CITIZENS OF DELAWARE, HE WAS NOT ONLY THE GUY WHO WAS THERE AHEAD OF JUDICIARY BUT FOR MANY OTHERS BUT REMEMBER –>>Greg: HE WAS GREAT WITH ANITA HILL, YOU ARE RIGHT ABOUT THE WOMEN PART.>>Juan: PEOPLE ON BOTH SIDES OF THE AISLE, I KNOW IN YOUR PARTISAN WORLD THAT DOESN’T MAKE SENSE, HE IS THE MOST ESTEEMED SENATOR OF HIS TIME.>>Dana: CAN I GET EMILY IN? THE OTHER PEOPLE THAT INITIALLY CAME OUT — A LITTLE BIT OF A BROADSIDE AGAINST BIDEN WAS BERNIE SANDERS AND ELIZABETH WARREN. BERNIE SANDERS ATTACKING HIM FOR HAVING A HIGH ROLLING FUND-RAISER LAST NIGHT IN PHILADELPHIA AND WAR — IT WAS KIND OF AN ARCANE ISSUE, SHE’S NEVER REALLY LIKED HIM.>>Emily: IT MAKES SENSE TO ME THAT THEY CAME OUT SWINGING RIGHT AWAY BECAUSE THEY ARE THE ONES THAT HAVE THE MOST TO LOSE. IF ANYONE THEY WILL LOSE THEIR SUPPORTERS TO BIDEN. AS THE ATTACKS INCREASE, I FEEL LIKE IN TERMS OF THE PRESIDENT’S ATTACK, AND TO SPEAK TO YOUR POINT, EVERYBODY’S POINT, IT MAKES ME THINK OF — TRUMP IS OUR SHARK IN THE WATER AND REGARDLESS OF HOW MUCH MONEY BIDEN RAISES HE IS SIMILAR TO A JET IN THAT HE RAISED A TON OF MONEY TO AND ULTIMATELY IT DOESN’T MATTER AND TRUMP SMELLS THAT GERIATRIC FIELD AND HE’S GOING AFTER HIM BECAUSE IT’S GOING TO BE EASY TO PICK OFF AND HE WOULD LOVE TO RUN AGAINST HIM IN 2020 BUT IT’S EASY TO PICK OFF NOW. HE IS 30 YEARS OF NOTHING AND I THINK THE ARGUMENT OF NAME RECOGNITION THERE’S ALSO A LOT OF NAME FATIGUE AND YOU CAN SEE IN THE MEDIA COVERAGE, THERE IS SOME REPORTS THE MEDIA WAS GLOWING REPORTS OF HIM AND “THE VIEW” VIEWERS LOVE HIM. I AM ON THE OTHER FLIP SIDE WHERE THIS ENTIRE THING IS TOTALLY LAUGHABLE.>>Juan: WHAT I THOUGHT, I THINK IT WORKED FOR HIM JUST LIKE YESTERDAY WITH THE ROLLOUT, I KNOW A LOT OF PEOPLE SAID HEY, WHY DID HE FOCUSED SO HEAVILY ON CHARLOTTESVILLE? TODAY, DONALD TRUMP IS BACK ON WHAT HE SAID ABOUT CHARLOTTESVILLE — WOW.>>Jesse: BIDEN QUOTED THOMAS JEFFERSON, A SLAVEHOLDER.>>Juan: ROBERT E. LEE WAS A
