tv   The Five  FOX News  January 11, 2014 2:00pm-3:01pm PST

2:00 pm
hello, everyone. i'm hello, everyone. i'm greg gutfield along with andrea tantaros, bob beckel, eric bolling, and dana perino. this is "the five." >> all right, it's day two of >> all right, it's day two of the christie scandal. and he still hasn't apologized. oh, wait, he did. >> i come out here today to apologize to the people of new jersey. >> all i can do is apologize. i'm just going to apologize. i think that's all you can do. i apologize to the people of new jersey today. why i specifically apologize to the people of ft. lee and apologize to the folks. i'm going to do that.
2:01 pm
>> that apology wasn't good enough. oh, wait, the ft. lee mayor accepted it. >> i accepted his apology. >> are you glad he came? >> i'm glad he came. >> do you believe him that he didn't have anything to do with it? >> i take him for his word, which is he had nothing to do with it. >> what do we do now, dear media? do we keep chasing a rabbit we already caught? the rabbit we skinned, blackened and washed down with your favorite merlot. we have given the story 44 times more coverage than the irs scandal, and the gates book is already old news. don't get me wrong, christie is worth covering, but now that you've awakened, there must be battered bunnies out there to chase, like all the white house has never said sorry for before, like fast and furious, sulyndra, the gsa, tony rezko, geithner's tax dodge, hiring eric holder. silence. the only thing president obama apologized for is people were dumb enough to believe him for obamacare.
2:02 pm
and what about disasters like obamacare, benghazi, and doj and irs could save an election. the white house is better at covering up stuff than maybelline. coddled more than the royal baby, obama never has to face his mistakes, which is why he makes so many. it's no surprise the media now pivots to christie to prevent itself from becoming a lame duck dynasty. another win for o who may never apologize and why should he? do you want sorry? the sorriest people ever are those who voted for him twice. >> how could you have come up with a bigger opening than that? that was unbelievable. >> i took a christie scandal and i turned it into an obama -- >> why didn't you put reverend wright on there? >> i didn't have time. >> by the way, i could have had bill ayers. >> you could have. >> so much to choose from.
2:03 pm
>> hawaii, the $2 million. >> the cocaine. >> how about that plane that they sent over new york? remember that? >> by the way, what did he close. obama closed the d.c. monument, the national park. he didn't just close the freeway. >> the republicans in congress voted to close the government. >> that was done as payback as well. >> i do admit, bob, that was a very hack kneed monologue, but i'm proud because it was right. look at andrea because she didn't have a chance to comment. thousands of pages will be dropping from the sky, documents, god knows what's in there, but it only needs one, one e-mail or one little thick and the whole thing explodes like something. >> it has to prove that chris christie knew about this and either okayed it or it came from him, or it's the alternative, which is what he said yesterday, that this staffer, who either had a nervous breakdown, or is a complete megalomaniac, which is
2:04 pm
by the way, what they are saying, she was drunk with power, acted on her own. if something comes out in the e-mails, he's in real trouble, but i have seen this story before in politics. you have a big rising star as a boss. you have somebody who has extreme power. and the staff assumes the persona of that person. and it's oftentimes gets a bigger ego, so they become vindictive. i have had my own run-ins with the christie staff, and i am an ally. there's some attitude going on, and it's a culture that i think is systemic in not just his staff, but it happens a lot in politics. and i think this is -- this is a perfect example of a staff that needs to get their -- not all of them -- but their egos in check. >> in a way, you're also talking about dana perino, who has the same issue. >> i was exactly talking about dana perino. >> awful human being.
2:05 pm
i was watching another network i won't name, but they found it -- they found it -- they were skeptical about that woman. they called her a lady, that that lady would have been responsible for this, which i thought was quite sexist. >> the republican men are waging a war on women. i actually wouldn't be surprised if there were more people who came out to try to defend her, and all of a sudden, she'll be running for senate. >> yeah. >> the media hates acceptance of an apology, because then the story stops. in the press gaggle yesterday where the ft. lee mayor was being a stand-up, gracious, smart public servant, yeah, i accept his apology, yeah, i accept his explanation. come on, we have been standing here for hours. can't you give us more to talk about? >> eric, this isn't going to end, obviously. what do you predict? >> literally 1,000 pages that they're piling through right now, of documents. >> they won't read it, though? >> they will. >> they won't read the obamacare bill, but they'll read -- >> they'll read this.
2:06 pm
if there is one innuendo he knew about it, he's in deep do do, but here's what i perceive happening. the media loves it because it does one thing. chris christie is a big name, big politician. i think the media actually likes chris christie. the main stream media likes him, because he did the bear hug with president obama, but the most important thing that the media has done this week is distance president obama from gates' book. gates' book comes out on monday. it's all everyone is talking about. it shows president obama and hillary clinton -- well, hillary clinton had her opinion developed about war strategy based on politics. obama sent 30,000 of our kids into battle based on something he didn't necessarily believe, didn't trust his commanders. and so that was bad. that was damning. this is going to go big, become bigger. it's going to be, you know, grow upon itself, and then the christie stuff. wow, this is a great opportunity
2:07 pm
for us to pivot from president obama, to take the attention away from that, and let's look at a republican. i will tell you, though, this gates stuff, it keeps making more and more coming up. >> a 60 minutes interview on sunday. >> you should get the gates book and read it verbatim on the show. every time you have a question, you say, i'm not answering that and go to page 68, and keep reading. >> it's not okay president obama sent 30,000 of our kids into harm's way and later said that he wasn't sure about the politics. could you imagine being one of those parents sending your kid to war and then the president united states says i'm not sure it's the right strategy. >> i can't say absolutely, but i would imagine every president who sends people to war at some point has doubts in their minds about it. >> not only doubts, expressed in front of gates and hillary clinton that he developed his iraq strategy based on politics. wow. >> that was back during the campaign. it's not when he was president of the united states.
2:08 pm
>> no, bob, he also said that in front of gates he wasn't sure of his strategy after he sent people in. >> have you had any of the positives things, a lot of them, that gates says about obama. >> he does say a lot of positive things. >> he does. >> the excerpt that came out today from gates' book that just recently was released a few hours ago that i read, it's not so flattering about president obama. there are some things, including one of them being a topper that gates thinks obama made the right decisions. so he's your commander in chief. that's the most important thing. did you make the best decisions? right. are the politics messy along the way? this recent excerpt shows how politically minded the white house was in all of the meetings, even with gates, and also shows what i think everyone assumed, but it confirms how thin-skinned the president and his team are in dealing with the military and even suggested, do they not respect me?
2:09 pm
that kind of language is not attractive. >> a monologue on gates' book. you should have done it. >> i want to go to andrea if we can talk to her about what really matters, which is "the bachelor." it started a few days ago. >> i'm so into juan. >> who isn't? chris harrison, is that his name? was on "the view" talking about this very controversy with our lovely companions over there. >> people died because of this! >> no, no, wait. let's back up. first of all, the liberals are just foaming at the mouth. they -- this is like porn for them. they're so excited to finally get at this guy. which we don't know anything about. >> they're accusing him of murder already. easy big fellow. >> andrea, this guy just came out, not in the traditional sense of coming out, but he just came out as a non-liberal by doing that. >> it's harder to come out as a non-liberal than the other thing. if i had a rose, greg, he would get the final rose. chris harrison. in the dramatic rose ceremony ever. i bet they did not expect that
2:10 pm
from him. >> no. >> it's extremely true. even with the gates book, as dana said, i think a lot of people knew president obama did it for politics, right, he didn't want to lose afghanistan on his watch, so he continued to prop up a kleptocracy for his benefit, but people died. when whoopi goldberg said, but people died, that's the appropriate response for benghazi. that's what they should have said about benghazi. when there's a scandal on the democratic side, people lose their lives. this chris christie thing pales in comparison to the other scandal. it's still important because we don't know what the payback was for. that's still a mystery, what was that for? but it's not the irs scandal, not the a.p. scandal, all of the other scandals really dwarf bridgegate. >> chris christie is a rising political figure. it's not surprising he's going to get this much coverage, and there are people buying it. there were 20 kids on a bus who got asphyxiated --
2:11 pm
>> stop it. this didn't work yesterday, bob. it didn't happen. you dreamt it. >> we were number one in the ratings last night. maybe because when you said that, everyone went, what is he saying? kids on a bus that died? >> what about the lawsuits that are springing from this? is that going to be an issue? i don't know. >> a lot of time and a lot of taxpayer money for a really stupid political decision by staffers of chris christie who have now been fired. can i mention one thing about the guy chris, the bachelor guy? >> yes. >> i think what he did on the view when he surprised them is he expressed what we were talking about yesterday, with most people not identifying with the republican or democrat party, and because they don't see things in such black and white ways. i mean, whoopi goldberg is saying chris christie killed people, and he's like, wait, hold on. that's not right. and for people on the right who were trying to, you know, defend christie without actually looking at the facts first, i think that's why people are starting to pull away, and
2:12 pm
somebody like chris -- what's his name? >> harrison. >> very cute. that's what people were thinking. >> democratic party. >> left his wife for one of the contestants? >> he can still be cute. >> observing something. >> yes. >> when chris christie became the darling of the left with the whole obama thing around hurricane sandy, they were fawning over this guy from hurricane sandy all the way through the election. now you see these liberals on talk shows, they don't know where to go with it. they don't know if they should trash him because they loved him or because he's a republican or a potential republican 2016. >> they will never really love chris christie because he has an r behind his name. it was all phony. the minute he runs against a democrat in a real sense against a hillary, they're going to kill him. we sat on the new year's show and i predicted, they're going to go after him. they're going to call him a bully. the cover of "usa today" i am not a bully. when you're explaining in politics you're not a bully,
2:13 pm
you're losing, and we're only nine days in. they're set to get him in a big way. >> he got the reputation of a bully because he's a bully. >> stronger than a storm. he and his staff proved they're stronger than a storm. that's their slogan in new jersey. >> stronger than a storm? >> stronger than a storm. >> don't you know the song? >> it's the campaign. >> to eric's point, it is about removing the strongest contender for hillary. the other thing, if you noticed last night, a lot of the coverage of christie was about his weight. almost every late night talk show talked about how fat he was. i was talking to bernie from the imus show. he said, if hillary gains weight, is that okay? is that okay? you can't. double standard. christie's fat, we get it. >> all right, ahead on "the five," a facebook free for all, and your questions for us now at facebook.com/thefivefnc. we'll answer what you ask us, i guess.

2:18 pm
welcome to what's next. comcastnbcuniversal. welcome back to the fastest welcome back to the fastest seven minutes in tv news. three exceptional stories. seven minutes. one effervescent host. >> and a partridge in a pear tree. >> first up, justin bieber earned him spot in the fastest seven again. check out the little pop star getting angry, bad neighbor style. listen to the voice in the background, which is alleged to be the biebs. >> i see you. i [ bleep ] see you. [ bleep ]. >> hey [ bleep ] you. >> i got another one for you. >> hi, i would like to place an assault. >> so that allegedly is bieber
2:19 pm
in the background, egging, i guess the neighbor's house or the neighbor's car. i love the fact, i'm placing an assault, like you're placing an order for chinese food. >> i love assault. it's delicious. >> exactly. so this is really tragic because justin bieber's music is so great. i kid. it's terrible. this guy is leaf garrett without a spine. bobby sherman without guts. david cassidy with a uterus. >> i have to think -- i have to think if you're justin bieber, you don't get yourself into situations like this. >> if i was justin bieber? >> would you egg a neighbor's house? >> i would never. do you remember when i was a country music dj, you think no one is listening to you. all of a sudden, there were eggs thrown against the window right by my face, 3:00 in the morning. very humiliating. i had to get that out because i have been embarrassed about it for a year. >> bob, you love the biebs. any thoughts?
2:20 pm
>> i don't really love the guy. i egg my neighbor's house. i still do. this kid is getting himself into one thing after another. it's a classic pattern of a kid who was allowed to run wild and got too much attention too quickly. i feel sorry for him. i think it's the beginning of the spiral down. i'm not sure his music is going to carry him for the next ten years, right? >> he said he was going to retire, and then he said just kidding. got me excited for a little bit. i don't know if i should judge him on this because i did as an adult toilet paper a man's car. >> because he dumped you. >> it was our campaign manager's husband. we were working on a campaign. also, i almost played ding-dong ditch with my nephews. but i didn't do it. >> ding-dong ditch, bob. >> next up, something you may not have known. dan rather used heroin. well, tried heroin, you know, for a story recently. >> dan rather in 1955, you tried heroin as part of a story. what did you experience while high?
2:21 pm
>> other worldly. >> did you ever want to go back to it? >> never. >> let the record show, did this in the police station, under police supervision, which is the one and only time i ever want to do it. it gave me a hell of a headache. >> that's going all out, a lot of research for this. >> first of all, i can't imagine a cop shop is going to let somebody come in and hit up heroin. a, they don't know if it's a hot shot or not. the guy has never done it before. they're going to let him shoot heroin. >> very strong heroin, it kills people, they can't take it. the idea they do it at a police station is crazy. the other thing is frankly, i have had little experience with this, very little, but i would not describe it as outer worldly. i would describe acid as outer worldly, but this is exactly the opposite way you would feel. >> well, his explanation was, and i love watch what happened live, he was doing it as part of a story. is that what we're calling a story now?
2:22 pm
he didn't just want to report on the story. he wanted to be part of the story. bob, you wanted to be part of the story to the '70s, '80s, part of the '90. he also hallucinated. he had a flashback, and he hallucinated george bush's military resume. right? it had some after effect. >> where are we going? >> this is meant to be edgy, coming from a journalist. if he really wanted to become brave, he should have said he voted for regan or said he supported the vietnam war or that he was a republican. say you tried heroin gives you strange new respect to score cool points, but it's stupid. >> i have one thing to say, which is i doubt the story because heroin does not give you a headache. >> and you know this. >> for a story. >> i tell you what happens in the horse barns out there. >> does it give you a headache? >> no. >> okay. >> let's do this. it's friday, let's have fun here. a couple ladies taking dives. one on purpose, one not so much.
2:23 pm
first, the rarely seen face to groin dive. watch. >> congratulations. >> oh! >> now, check out the gal who really, really didn't want that speeding ticket. >> she just jumped in the river. >> so what happened is she ditched. she was in a stolen car, but she had a long rap sheet, and she's fine. >> why do you keep coming to me? >> i just love it. >> because i had a little experience. >> you had experience in both. before you do this, let's do the "price is right" one more time, face to groin. >> congratulations.
2:24 pm

2:25 pm
>> or she didn't want to live anymore. >> that's the kind of analysis on friday, after a long week. >> we're going to go now. coming up, 120-pound mother of four attempts to devour a steak that weighs the same as some newborn children. and in less than three minutes. >> a metaphor. >> she's eating and picking up a baby. >> you must stick around for this one. you must. facebook friday up ahead, back by popular demand. we answer your questions. send them now. facebook.com/thefivefnc. we'll be right back.

2:29 pm
well, is president obama making america's youth miserable? according to a new analysis by the young americans foundation, yes.
2:30 pm
the so-called youth misery index, a measurement of youth unemployment has hit an all-time high, making them miserable. obama won the vote of 18 to 29-year-olds by a 23% margin. in 2012, but they're quietly being left behind. so bob, these are the same young adults that voted in droves for president obama, arguably handed him the white house. not once, but twice. and he's causing them to be literally miserable because of their high unemployment and student loan debt. >> i think it's his fault the colleges charge as much as they do. i'm sure obama gets them all together and says increase your tuition because we want people to pay a lot more. let's also keep in mind obama was the president who gave relief to student loans and cut the percentage they had to pay back, but it's not surprising when there's not a lot of jobs out there and they do have a lot of debt, sure, they're going to be miserable. >> i know you're being sarcastic, but he did make student loans cheap and easy. that's a sign to the
2:31 pm
universities that you can just, eric, jack up the tuition and charge whatever you want, letting them have free rein to have a higher education bubble. >> cheap, easy and excuse your students loan 0 so people can take on more debt. this foundation, young americans foundation, you have to go there. a conservative cornucopia of resources. >> not just conservatives, right wing. >> whatever, it's fantastic. you can find a ton of great stuff there, go there. but the index, unemployment, youth unemployment. we can hang that on obama. >> really? >> the student loans, you can say it's not his fault, fine, take it out. but the third and most important in my opinion is national dent. young people's share of national debt, the meat of it, the biggest portion of the misery index comes from, is absolutely ballooned under president obama. >> you think these kids know how much of the percentage? >> it's not up to them. they're not polled. this is an index that has nothing to do with what they think. >> this right-wing think tank
2:32 pm
comes up with things like this. >> forget the right-wing think tank. the "new york times" had a column recently that highlighted a study by stewart friedman in 1992 asking millennials their inclination to have kids. back in the day, in '92, it was 78%. he conducted the study recently and found out only 42% of them want to have children. and the reason they say they don't want to have kids is because they don't see how they can make it work. they don't have jobs. they have crushing student loan debt. they see a pretty abysmal future. isn't that a troubling thing for the united states? >> i think -- definitely because demographically because if you look at europe or russia where they have a low birth rate and japan, you have problems down the road because you need people to be reproducing so we can keep things going. but this is delaying everything. so they can't find the jobs, so then they're maybe defaulting or late in paying back their student loans. they're not buying that second
2:33 pm
car, not buying homes, and their happiness is delayed. and marriage actually, a committed relationship provides people a certain sort of good feeling about it, so you wouldn't be in the misery index. i guess what i'm trying to say is i don't want to blame president obama for any of this. these are long-term trends that have been happening for a long time that have to do with the foundation of our educational system and the fundamental change of the economy and the technology we're not prepared for in this country. >> greg, i really want these young people to have kids because they need to pay my social security and your social security. but shouldn't liberals be encouraging kids to have sex? instead, they're giving out free birth control, right? not you, bob. >> i have to comment on this misery index. personally, i think it's insulting to our grandparents and to our great grandparents and to me who had a much, much worse growing up than the kids have now.
2:34 pm
