about it. after one debate, we've got another one coming up. less than two weeks on fbn. we thought we'd bring up things like business and economics. we thought it was a good idea. hope you watch. we'll see you on the 10th. hello, everyone, i'm eric bolling, along with kimberly guilfoyle, juan williams, melissa francis and greg gutfeld, it's 5:00 in new york city and this is "the five." the third gop debate went down last night. i might be uniquely qualified to say this to cnbc -- what the hell were you doing? i used to work there. the debate was bill as your money, your vote. but cnbc showed it can be as biased as the mother ship, nbc. the moderators focused not so much on the economy or money, more on fantasy football, comic books and gotcha moments, the candidates? let's just say they didn't appreciate the lefty leaning. >> the democrats have the
mainstream media. >> the questions that have been asked so far in this debate illustrate why the american people don't trust the media. if you look at the question, donald trump, are you a comic book villain. ben carson, can you do math. john kasich, will you insult two people over here. marco rubio, why don't you resign. jeb bush, why have your numbers fallen. why not talk about the substantive issues. >> waughant me to answer or do you want to answer? because i got to tell you the truth. even in new jersey what you're doing is called rude. >> everybody said it was going to be three hours, three and a half, including them and about two minutes i renegotiated it down to two hours. so we can get the hell out of here. not bad. not bad. for the record the debate was always going to be two hours. senator rubio. >> that's not right. that is absolutely not right. you know that that is not right. >> so uniquely qualified.
guess what, you worked there as well, melissa. john harwood was on the attack. what's that all about? >> it's amazing, they've gotten so much criticism today for being left-leaning. what's most amazing about cnbc, you look at those moderators and they believe they're playing it down the center. that's really what is most upsetting and infuriating and sort of distressing and delusional about the media. is you could hold a gun to john harwood's head and woe say he played it down the center. he's not biased and it's just -- it's categorically not true when you watch it. >> greg, yesterday we talked about maybe hearing something about the debt. maybe talking a little bit about job creation. wages. we got comic books, you know, comic books and fantasy football questions? >> you know what the debate was? it was the opposite of a book. you know when you read a book. it imports information 42 your brain and you feel smart centre this debate was a knowledge extraction machine. which meant the longer that you watched it, the dumber you got. so after two hours, i had the iq
of and suddenly john harwood made sense to me because i was dumb enough to understand him. we have to admit, if you think that these moderators were operatives of the left, you're wrong, because they failed miserably. the republicans love it when this happens. because these are fat pitches down the middle. you can hit out. when media bias expose it isself, people like cruz and christie, it's great for them. because everybody loves the sound of the media getting smacked. so don't believe for a minute that people are upset at them because they love the opportunity to trash them. >> well, but the rnc came out and said, reince priebus said he was ticked off with cnbc. he thought it was atrocious. the rnc vets all of these debates, right? the rnc, they knew that cnbc was going to put up three likely lefties as the rnc to blame? >> they can't control the questions. i mean that's -- guess what, then in the free parkt debate economy, don't go to cnbc next
time. you just played yourself out. tapped out. because they were disrespectful to the whole process. they did themselves and their network, their careers, no favors last night. it was embarrassing. they were amateur hour, strictly jv. >> you were a debate moderator, were you surprised at some of the questions coming from them? >> i don't think there's any question, they came off as mocking and condescending, it was a clear pattern. i'm aware of how much republicans, as greg was pointing out, love to attack the media, right? >> i'm one of them. >> it's red meat. check it out. so the candidates know they can play to the audience, because the press is a villain. let me just say, cnbc was trying to get attention. from the very start, eric, the way they started that thing, with no talk, it was awful. it was like what is going on? are you having a debate or are you not having a debate? >> they led up to that debate, juan, saying, no one has ever asked the debt question. >> i'm talking about the start.
when the camera went on. >> in the days leading up to the debate. carl quintanilla was talking about what he was going to ask. >> but the problem is -- >> it was money -- >> they should have done that would have been substantive. but i'm saying i don't think there was intellectual -- i have no problems with tough questions for candidates. cnbc and john harwood have been saying today, if you're running for president, you should be able to get in the ring. but here's the problem -- no intellectual substance, no real rigor to the question. and when you say to somebody, you're a comic book candidate that means that you want to be the center of attention. >> of course. you had to get in there, debate was supposed to be about money. the first thing you would say is give me three things would you do out of the gate to cut spending. three things would you do on day one to cut entitlements, ask real questions. ask math questions. analyze things. they didn't do any of that. they're asking about fantasy football, bless their hearts. >> one question, i think i know the answer, but we, when we are saying that nbc, we're accusing
cnbc of mean questions. which is exactly -- >> no, no. >> that's what, let me finish. >> sorry. >> we're accusing them of asking say pointed sarcastic mocking questions. trump accused fox news of asking mean and unfair questions. >> here's the difference. >> i want know the difference. >> difference is i think there was substance and a real opponent. if you asked trump a tough question, say about immigration, and his comments about mexicans, guess what, he really said that stuff. and it's an opportunity for him to respond. but when you say to somebody, you know what, think you're a comic book character, what is that? all that's saying is i think i'm better than you. >> the moderator -- >> personal attack, which was inappropriate. >> it was -- it was billed and sold as an economy debate. that's why cnbc scored the debate. i'm sure if they had said, hey, we want to do a highly political left-leaning debate with you, rnc. the rnc would say no.
we're not going to do it. they can say no. >> the other thing, too, is they were, it wasn't just biased, they were inkpedant. they were tripping over themselves. they were cutting off people without listening to the answer. they didn't have the research. >> can i make -- carl quintanilla is a fine journalist. i've known him a long time. i think becky quick asks a lot of good questions on the morning show as well. this could come if the top down. mark hoffman may have leaned on them -- >> they may -- >> i disagree with you. and this is coming from the person that was told you know, that i was disrespecting the office of the president when i went in and asked mathematical questions about obamacare at the time. i don't actually think it came from the top over there. i think it's really hard to do a debate. and it takes a ton of prep and you have to be on the facts. i just don't think they did enough homework. i don't think they prepared well. >> when the candidates would say, where are you getting that from? they didn't have an answer and trump had the wonderful response where he said, you make it up.
>> it was from his website. >> rubio said to harwood, you had the to correct your own piece that you wrote. and he said no, i didn't. he did. apparently what happened in boulder didn't stay in boulder. the frustrated candidates didn't hold back after the debate. >> moderators didn't do their job last night. and a number of areas. not only were the questions snarky and divisive. and nonsubstantive. they were just biased. >> we turned this into a game show. and those of us who are running, you know we're doing this with a very serious intent. and i just sometimes feel like that the whole process has gotten out of control. >> i think they obviously had an agenda. and when i compare them to the kind of questions that were asked of the democrats in their debate, the difference is night and day. the audience was able to pick up on the bias. >> i saw more unity among the
republicans field mainly because they were all unified against the moderators and the crowd also sensed that. that the moderators seemed to be a bit biased with all of their questions. >> in these debates, the media tries every question is an insult, every question is an attack. every question is asking one republican to attack another republican. you know they don't do that to the democrats. >> pure point. they had a lot to talk about. >> you realize that the moderators are like actors, playing moderators in an hbo movie about evil republicans. and they were like, they were like drunks on rider mowers, they were all over the place. it was -- it was pure ineptitude. and i think their ineptitude creates the bias. >> they got outmatched, they didn't have the debate skills. they didn't have the prep to go with it. it was kind of like the moderators got rolled by the candidates, it makes the job harder for the next group up. luckily maria and neil can handle it. but -- they got rolled like so
many substitute teachers. >> they went off of what they know. they went off-script. they didn't stay with the money script. >> you know what the script was? get attention for cnbc. introduce -- >> it worked, then. >> i don't know if it worked, melissa, i don't think more of them, i think less of them. >> cnbc is called don't see nbc. >> let me make one last point. they essentially from my perspective, let the candidates off the hook, because the candidates, take cruz for example, cruz is able to, instead of answering questions -- >> they're swimming in the political pool. they don't know that stroke, they know the money stroke. they're swimming in the money stroke, they would have had the upper hand. >> they didn't take it. they did a disservice to everybody who cares about the issues and wants to hear what they have to say about the economy. wants to hear what they have to say about their ideas for taxes. to be substantive. all of these candidates have been attacked and said hey, listen we want to know some substance. what is your specific plan. not floating, loose rhetoric
about what you think you're going to do, making cuts, get specific. >> to your point about harwood, trying to nail rubio on his tax plan. and rubio called him out on it. harwood lied on television. he lied. >> okay. right here. yesterday greg asked me, what do i expect from harwood? i said i thought he shouldn't be a gop debate moderator, he leans far left. check it out, he practically fell off the left side of his moderator chair. harwood used the debate stage to attack the gop candidates rather than do his job. >> you've done very well in this campaign so far by promising to build a wall and make another country pay for it. send 11 million people out of the country. cut taxes $10 trillion without increasing the deficit. and make americans better off because your greatness would replace the stupidity and incompetence of others. >> that's right. >> let's be honest -- is this a comic book version of a presidential campaign? you give nearly twice as much of a gain in after-tax income to
the top 1%, as to people in the middle of the income scale. since you're the champion of americans living paycheck to paycheck, don't you have that backward? the leading republican candidate when you look at the average of national polls right now is donald trump. when you look at him, do you see someone with the moral authority to unite the country? >> i'm going to try this ask a fair question, john. get an answer, we, the viewer, will decide for ourselves. >> that harwood thing is probably more, is bigger than people think. he denied that he corrected it. and he said he was right. and i saw john podoritz put it up on twitter. he lied to rubio and lied, basically to america. that's a big deal. harwood -- >> he misunderstood. i'm not sure he lied. i mean because he, you can make mess with the numbers. but he clearly misrepresented and he misspoke and he should be man enough to say i was wrong. but i will say this, i thought
the moment of the debate was ted cruz, right. when ted cruz is asked what about your plan, right, for cutting for finances for economics, he doesn't have to answer, he just goes after the press. and not only that he also lied about cnbc. originally had a three-hour debate scheduled. donald trump said i'm not doing three, he said i'm doing two. cnbc fought, ben carson jumped in bed with donald trump so to speak and the two of them got the debate changed. harwood unequivocally said it was the other way around. >> so he's lying again. this is terrible. i would agree with greg, there should be some kind of repercussions. and by the way, thank god they put an end to that. it wasn't three hours, because it was bad. >> harwood should go work at msnbc. be watched by fewer. >> if you look at the top of the debate and where harwood was asking the original question, about trying to fact-check donald trump's numbers. i thought he was going to do the math and say that's what business report supposed to be
all about. we have the capability to do the math and the training, you go had in, you fact-check their numbers for the american public, who doesn't have that background. instead he took a hard turn. saying are you a comic book candidate. >> here's the question, are debates now basically like huckabee said, comedy shows? >> well the problem is people don't have enough time because there's so many candidates, ironically, harwood is the cartoon. >> he is. >> he's a car toon cut-out of the a left-wing biased moderator. >> fbn as of this date -- >> november 10th. will focus on the economy. >> the thing that cnbc was supposed to. wait they sold it. couldn't come through. don't move, up next we're going to talk about the awkward bush/rubio feud that played out on stage last night. we're going to hear both of their reactions to their fight today. and mark your calendars that the next gop debate is coming up on the fox business network in two weeks, november 10th, don't miss
jeb bush and marco rubio. >> marco, when you signed up for this, this was a six-year term and you should be showing up to work. i mean literally, the senate, what is it like a french work week? you get like three days where you have to show up? you can campaign. or just resign and let someone else take the job. >> i listened to jeb as he walked around the country and said you're modeling your campaign after john mccain. that you're going to launch a furious comeback the way he did. by fighting hard in new hampshire and places like that carrying your own bag at the airport. you know how many votes that john mccain missed? he doesn't remember you complaining about john mccain's record. the only reason you're doing it now is that we're running for the same position and someone said attacking me will help you. >> today the two took a softer tone. >> a lot of people are frustrated with their jobs. all across this country. but continue to show up to work. a lot of people that can't take time off, unless they get a deduction in their pay. that's the real world.
>> this is not personal. i'm not attacking his character. i'm saying people need to show up to work to vote. >> i haven't said a disparaging word about him and i won't. i have admiration for him, he's considered my friend, i have personal affection towards him. i'm not running against jeb bush, nor am i running against any of the other republicans in this race. i'm running for president. >> that's a smart approach. a lost people supportive of both jeb and marco rubio and marco rubio was helped to where he is by endorsements and help from jeb bush and other people that jeb is connected to. do you like that they softened it up today? what do you think of the moment last night? >> i said in the green room, i thought the whole thing was a set-up. that jeb gave it to rubio, so that rubio could like a hurricane crushing a trailer park, which is what he did to jeb. it really didn't work for jeb. he went to ambush, bush went to ambush rubio and he got
ambushed. it felt almost like he did it on purpose. it wasn't a pretty scene. >> unfortunately jeb is thatawk. jeb released this attack on rubio prior to the debate. so rubio knew that was going to come. it was like a day before the debate. what do you do? you wait for that? here's how we're going to respond to it. he had a great response, he takes jeb out at the legs, instead of coming back again, where jeb could have made a point about rubio missing his vote. >> what would you have said? >> i would say no, i live in florida. you're my senator, you have to make votes, if you're not going to make votes, get out. the problem is, it came off as awkward, it came off as mean-spirited, it came off as almost faux anger. the bottom line is -- >> he did say i care. >> he may have a lot of money in the pac. he's going to have, jeb is going to have a hard time raising solid, real dollars that he can
spend on a campaign now. he can't use the pac money on the campaign. he's going to have a hard time. because i think that money going to go to rubio. >> rubio's people are saying that bush's people are now contacting them to say we're getting on board. he would put that out there, anyway. >> at the end of the day, two stories that -- stand out to me, one is that apparently bush has got danny diaz, is knocking on the cnbc trailer saying hey what about my guy? this isn't fair, we don't think we're getting enough time. that's, if that story is true, that's a desperation story. you think of this as the end of october, what's today, october 29th or something, and i can't think of a candidate that's had a worst month than jeb bush. >> they say you don't choose a candidate based on a few minutes on the stage, it should be about -- jeb bush has a tremendous economic record when you look at the way he cut taxes and job creation and personal wealth in florida or whatever. but you have to be able to win an argument, if you're going to be a president. >> you have to be persuasive. >> you have to get people over
to your point of view. you've got to be able to convince people to do what you want and to follow you. it's like being a ceo. it's one of the things that you've got to do in the job and i thought marco rubio stood out there and he was able to say, we can't come out here and attack each other, while he was attacking jeb bush. it was masterful. >> can you see jeb is just not having a good time. >> if you don't enjoy the process, it's time for you to move on. >> second from bottom for in speaking time. >> a guy who has the requisite experience to be president of the united states. you have to let that, take down that frustration you feel and you got to connect. >> all the experience of the world is not going to matter if you don't connect. >> what you're say something it's the new kind of politic that the resumé and the competence isn't enough. you've got to think on your feet. and marco rubio thought on his feet. and it was quite persuasive. >> he may -- if you're rubio, you know a day earlier you know
this attack is coming. >> you knew it was telegraphed. >> he was ready for it. he was turned. >> the fact is he had missed a lot of votesth and the home state paper is calling for him to get out. those are facts that are unnecessary. >> i didn't mean to bring it up. i don't want to hurt anybody's feelings. i thought one of the problems -- stop talking. >> stop talking. keep on getting your rap on. i got another few. >> juan? >> there's the hatfields and the mccoys. there's bush and rubio, kasich and trump. >> let's see. >> folks, we got to wake up. we cannot elect somebody that doesn't know how to do the job. >> first of all, john got lucky with a thing called fracking. number two, this was a man that was a managing general partner at lehman brothers when it went down the tubes. just thirdly, he was so nice, he was such a nice guy and he said oh, i'm never going to attack.
then his poll numbers tanked, that's why he's on the end. and he got -- he got nasty. >> first of all, ohio does have an energy industry but we're diversified. secondly when you talk about me being on the board of lehman brothers, i wasn't on the board of lehman brothers, i was a banker and i was proud of it and i traveled the country and learned how people make jobs. >> e.b.? >> that was early in the debate. kasich took a little shot at trump and he went right at him. his numbers are so bad he's at the end. every other candidate goes whoa, wait a minute. i'm not going to go there. huckabee said he's wearing a trump tie. some said trump would be a better president than hillary. the strategy is working for trump. >> he was actually pretty well behaved last night. still funny, he held his own. he's like i'm a man in the middle and you guys on the end not doing so well. >> it's hard to argue with that you watch kasich sitting there,
making notes, thinking about what he's going to come back with. that's hard, when you're in an argument. you don't want to be scribbling down your comeback and reading it off paper. it looks sort of sad. although i do read my papers here. >> the trump people are saying today that they in terms of a twitter, facebook response, they 0 won. and i think they may have something here. bush looks like a guy who hasn't run for office in i think it's eight years or more, he's out of practice. but i saw trump, i thought trump was not as angry as he's been in the past. >> what about your best friend? >> i thought ben just looked like he was -- i don't know, not -- >> low energy. >> well, is that rude? >> kasich has a heck of a resumé. he's a persuasive guy, but his fault was he should have stuck to his own achievements, instead of just stopping there, he
linked his achievements to an attack on trump which then, that opened up the cage to at least the -- unleash the lion. it showed the benefit that trump has is he's jargon-free. every single one of these jabs, it doesn't have any political language to it. it's -- you're at the end. everybody at home understands that. thanksgiving, you send a crazy person at the end of the table. >> we're on the end. >> but -- >> i'm on the end for a reason. let's be honest. >> there's like half the show is gone now, the a and b block ate it like a big pacman. even though two republican candidates have dropped out of the race, the debate stage was still packed last night and greg has an idea about how to make the upcoming debates less cramped and more informative for voters, next. jeb bush: this president, with all due respect,
believes that america's leadership and presence in the world is not a force for good. america has led the world and it is a more peaceful world when we're engaged the right way. we do not have to be the world's policeman. we have to be the world's leader. we have to stand for the values of freedom. who's going to take care of the christians that are being eliminated in the middle east? but for the united states, who? who's going to stand up for the dissidents inside of iran that are brutalized each and every day? but for the united states, who?
who's going to take care of israel and support them - our greatest ally in the middle east? but for the united states, no one - no one is capable of doing this. the united states has the capability of doing this, and it's in our economic and national security interest that we do it. i will be that kind of president and i hope you want that kind of president for our country going forward. announcer: right to rise usa is responsible for the content of this message.

(unenthusiastic) oh... ha ha ha! joanne? is that you? it's me... you don't look a day over 70. am i right? jingle jingle. if you're peter pan, you stay young forever. it's what you do. if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico. ♪ you make me feel so young... it's what you do. ♪ you make me feel ♪ so spring has sprung.
last night's debate was like a big box of free kittens, you really don't notice when one goes missing until one goes missing. i'll be listening to carly and think, what happened to rand? did he go out for a perm? is ben carson sharpening his large camping knife and what about huckabee. the disorganized moderators were like parents overrun by kids at halloween, all they had was circus peanuts. it's no surprise that we learned nothing and then to add insult do injury, jim cramer shows up out of nowhere. he always sounds like he's talking during a bowel movement. >> dr. carson, in recent weeks, a number of pharmaceutical companies have been accused profiteering for dramatically raising the prices of life-saving drugs. you have spent a lifetime in medicine. have these companies gone too
far? should the government be involved in controlling some of these price increases? >> overinflated balloon. candidates aren't going to leave, and we can't force them to leave, can i propose a new model? let's five this thing. meaning get rid of the moderators and decide the candidates into three groups of five. let them sit around a table. talk issues, and we listen for three one-hour programs. there we find out who they are, how they deal with people and most important, how persuasive they can be. look at lindsey graham, a brave oddity, he would be lost in a sea of suits, in a small group, he kills. >> how about a a round of applause for boulder, colorado, this is a beautiful place. looking at their academic standards, the only way i could have gotten into this ust is to be invited to this debate tonight. >> what are the three apps you use on your cell phone. >> number one, fox news, to the chinese, when it comes to dealing with me, you got a
clenched fist or an open hand. you pick, the party is over, to all the dictators, make me commander-in-chief and this crap stops. good god look who we're running against, the number one candidate on the other side thought she was flat broke after her and her husband were in the white house for eight years. the number two guy went to the soviet union on his honeymoon and i don't think he ever came back. if we don't beat these people, who the hell are we going to beat? he's felix unger with a machete. if we don't fix this thing all we're going to get is hyperactive moderators, never on fnc and rushed platitudes from candidates trying in vain to be memorable. frankly, i would rather watch "scandal" and scandal is awful. >> no, it's not. >> you have to watch it recently. >> i just watched it last thursday. >> back to, back to the debate. is it time to thin the herd? or is it time to split the herd? >> i actually like your idea. i think it's very smart. you want to see how they're able
to relate to other people, sit at a table. i like that. you're going to get to know more about them. the guys on the end, where everybody gets along and lets each other talk. >> i think it would be good. i'm going deal with you later, francis. instead of you've got what, how many talks? two seconds of this. two minutes for this guy and that's -- what did you learn about them as a candidate? how are you even supposed to survive and sustain and connect with the voters if they can't even hear what you have to say about the issues? >> if you subtracted all the questions asked by moderators, think about all the time you could have. >> think about how long it too us to take our turn. when we first started the show. it's like five people trying to jump in and especially when the stakes, you want to be president of the united states. >> i have a question -- if it was like five would you want to be at donald trump's table or not? it's going to be the table that
gets the highest ratings, he's going to steal the lunch money from everybody he is sitting down with. >> at this table, you can keep moving around and the audience can vote. it's like a rap battle. >> will there be cocktails? >> there should be cocktails. >> guess who was watching the debate last night? hillary rodham clinton and she was tweeting about the debate. and she said in her opinion, 10 candidates, zero ideas. and she goes on and on and i'm thinking to myself -- you know, these candidates, they didn't break out. because they don't have time. >> they weren't even asked proper questions. why are you insulting them. >> you can ask anything, but if you have something to say -- >> like lindsey graham. >> the real answer to your question, greg, let's thin the herd. i mean there's no way rand paul can justify. i think christie had a good debate by the way, but again i don't see that he's picking up any seats. >> it's time for pataki to pack
it in-i. >> maybe graham could come on the big stage. >> i want graham on the big stage so bad. i think he's the most interesting person out there. i don't even agree with half of his stuff. but i listen to him and i go. i agree with him on terror. he is the most forceful person on terror out there. >> he's the first guy who is saying it like it is. he doesn't have anything to lose. >> that's true. >> the other ones still think they're enemies. >> does bush stand? >> i don't see it happening. >> meaning when? everybody is going to stay in until the fox debate. >> to iowa. i would say -- >> probably not. >> the candidates took a break from attacking one another to target another opponent, hillary clinton. you know what's ahead. a montage, next.
it's hillary clinton, the middle class has $2300 less in their pockets than the day that barack obama got elected president and now they say hillary clinton proposing a third term of economic policy for, for our country. >> it is the height of hypocrisy. for mrs. clinton, to talk about being the first woman president when every single policy she espouses and every single policy of president obama has been demonstratably bad for women. >> hillary clinton admit she'd sent emails to her women saying hey this attack by benghazi, was caused by al qaeda-like elements, she spent a week telling the families of those victims and the american people that it was because of a voixt and yet mainstream media said it was the greatest week of her campaign. it was the week she got exposed as a liar. >> kim, back to you first, she's the number one concern among
republicans, who can beat hillary clinton? that should be the only criteria. >> well, i mean you should factor in a number of things. but ultimately it is going to matter who can stand head to head in a general election and pull off a victory. with the conservative republican values that the country is looking for and the constituents that want to support that candidate. i like that rubio is not afraid to tell it like it is. the fact of the matter is that hillary clinton did lie she did lie. and he's not afraud to call it like it is, and you want somebody that's going to be able to stand up to her in the debate and call her out on the specific things that she's done. that have been bad for this country. and she's going to continue with the same failed policies of barack obama. carlie fiorina can do that and chris yistie would go after her and trump. we know that. >> for republicans they have to be looking at this thing any of these people are better than hillary clinton. shouldn't the number run and only criteria be who can beat her in a general. >> the giants, melissa, before
you go to the super bowl, you have to make sure you take care of the nfc and then can you represent the nusk and the super bowl. if you're trump, you can do that because you're leading, right? or if you're trump and carson. you can focus on hillary clinton which would be smart instead of taking shots at punching down, right if if you're not leading, then you got to go after each other. i don't think that's smart strategy to say, to take an opportunity to say hey, here's why you should be voting for me in a primary. and say, turn it into here's why it could be hillary. it's not that time yet. >> is it like dress for the job you want, not the job that you have? you get out there and say, if you put me up against hillary, i can win this thing. what do you think? i'm coming to you greg, i'm desperate. >> you must be if you're coming to me. >> i'm going to go out on a limb and say rubio should be the nominee. based on what he said. he had a two-fer there. he nailed hillary for criminality and incompetence on
been gaz ir and a bit of krlt criminality on lying. the server stuff, she should not be in charge of a country if she can't protect us in the era of cyberterror, she's woefully incompetent. whoever drops out next, the support has to go to rubio. i was very impressed. >> rubio did, what mitt romney was supposed to do to obama in that debate. hit her on benghazi. >> can any of those people beat hillary clinton? >> not right now. i mean -- you know, looking at the reality. i thought in fact eric, i thought they should have done more because anti-obama, anti hillary unifies the republican party. they were going after each other. >> should the republican party take some responsibility for the hostile questioning at last night's debate? that debate, next. i have moderate to severe crohn's disease. it's tough, but i've managed.
but managing my symptoms was all i was doing. so when i finally told my doctor, he said humira is for adults like me who have tried other medications but still experience the symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease. and that in clinical studies, the majority of patients on humira saw significant symptom relief. and many achieved remission. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. if you're still just managing your symptoms, ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, remission is possible.
i thought maybe they would bring forward a pretty fair forum here tonight. but i think it was one gotcha question, one personal low blow after the other. it's almost like they tried to design a rubik's cube for every question. to take the worst element. >> but should reince priebus and the gop take some responsibility? should they have seen this coming? what do you think, eric? >> i think the way the process is, no, kimberly is right. you can't ask or tell or direct but you can certainly deny a moderator. >> if they say these are who we plan to, do i think they could, the rnc if i'm not mistaken, could say we're not interested. >> can you make an objection. >> my point would be, look, it's a gop debate. it's a gop debate. bring in larry kudlow, so what
>> that's hot. >> wow. that's -- >> i would watch it, wouldn't you? >> that's like a game show. that's what we were just complaining about. >> does that make sense to you? >> they would ask good questions, is that biased? you talk about biased. >> i don't think it went bad for the republicans last night at all. everybody is talking today about what a terrible job cnbc did. i think it's been wonderful for the republicans. i feel bad for the hosts at cnbc they're getting tortured today. eric and i are never being invited to another christmas party. >> it's safe to say we're never going to work there again. >> we've blown that. >> i don't think that -- >> and the gop are to blame, they don't, they say let's have
a deal and they decided how many debates, they decided which networks. i don't see that they were involved in asking the questions. >> let's face it, cnbc is not a left-wing deny zenn. when i'm at the jim you know who watch it is? retired stockbroke who are fist-bump. anybody who was angry about the debate -- [ laughter ] . >> that was not about you. >> you should have to work this out. >> that was not about you. >> it wasn't about you. >> there we go. all right. one more thing. more hilarity to ensue.
time for one more thing. greg, kick it off? >> as you can tell, dana's not here. melissa is here instead. kind of like dana. >> thanks. >> but if you, if you miss her, i did a podcast with dana perino, she interviewed me on something, my book and if you want to go to foxnews.com/radio. it's a fun interview. and it's on the featured item on the website. so you can find it. check it out. >> your love is strong. >> very good. >> so after 35 years, china is
now ending the one child only policy. it's about time. what happened in japan and is happening in the united states. declining birth rates are crushing the society. people live longer, you need younger people to replenish the money. >> income stream. >> but get this, over the years they've had the one child policy. they estimate 400 million fewer births in china. so congratulations, they're finally getting with the times. >> who's next? kg you're up. >> this is great, everybody was watching today. lawmakers today elected representative paul ryan as the 54th speak her of the house after john boehner's resignation. on hand was his supporter and friend, they ran togethersident. former massachusetts governor and 2012 gop presidential candidate. he tweeted this cute little selfie. i got the first speaker selfie. you've got ryan, romney and romney and jenna ryan. very fis. mitt, we miss you. >> very good, very nice. >> juan? >> well you know, i disappoint
people at this table all the time. but you've been talking to my wife again. keep your hands to yourself. anyway so yesterday was national chocolate day. and you know everybody was saying like dana and kimberly said, hey, nobody is doing chocolate. and i said well ways going to do it. but then we had something else. so today i think, let me make it up. let me try to do better in life. you know how you're always encouraging me, eric. so look what i went out and bought. for me. >> i thought were you sharing it. >> i am. i think -- >> i think this is racist. >> because i'm your candyman? >> you are my candyman. >> here we go. >> just give me the white chocolate. >> that's what i'm going to call you, white chocolate. >> there we go.
>> for the record this has been the most fun hour of my whole entire life, apologies to my husband and my family. but let me show you this. this is straight out of china. this lovely video of look at these, these are thousands of baby chicks that are three days old. they've been shown water for the first time theemplt running to go jump into water it looks like an avalanche of peeps, is that tweety bird, sylvester off to the side. they're like three days old and they're running in a herd to water. >> do you know that the water is boiling. >> that was immediately shipped off to 20 restaurants and they're delicious. >> no, no. >> they're delicious. look at them all crowding in there and floating. >> where was that? >> china. >> do you ever go out to like eastern shore of maryland, where purdue has all the -- it's something. >> you're going to take us into a yucky place? >> no, it's the baby chicks on the eastern shore. >> this chocolate is absolutely delicious.
>> it's my favorite. >> no chocolate with cornflakes. >> best hour ever. >> we got to go. you guys continue that in the break. up next, we're having chocolate. republican presidential candidates snipe at each other, but gang up on the debate moderators. now, the day after, this is "special report." good evening, welcome to washington, i'm brett baier, tonight we have limited commercial breaks, thanks to our sponsor for the hour, norfolk southern. fewer and shorter breaks and a lot more news and analysis. we begin tonight with the republican presidential race and the fallout from last night's third candidate debate. presidential candidate and texas senator ted cruz will join us live here shortly. but first, chief political correspondent carl cameron has
