won't work. i'm glad that scott kelly, we think the world of you. thank you for sending us this picture. >> and the globe is getting warmer. >> "special report," next. islamic terrorists on the move. a new group storms a mali hotel, killing more than two dozen people, including at least one american. this is "special report." good evening, welcome to washington, i'm brett baier, for the second consecutive friday, we begin with a brutal attack by radical islamic terrorists. this time, the target? a luxury hotel in bamako, mali. at one point there were almost 200 hostages, including americans. and we have just learned from the state department one american is among the dead. at this hour in mali, the situation appears under control as the investigation continues.
along with the recovery of bodies. national security correspondent jennifer griffin has the latest tonight from the pentagon. good evening, jennifer. >> good evening, brett. we've just learned that a u.s. citizen was among those killed in the mali attack today. u.n. representative says the number of killed could be as high as 27. two, some witnesses say three gunmen held more than 170 hostages, all the attackers were eventually killed. >> gunmen shouting allahu akbar, or god is great. stormed the radisson hotel in o. this morning. releasing those who could recite islamic verses. the u.s. embassy ordered all american citizens in the capital to shelter in place. five u.s. military personnel assigned to a u.n. stabilization mission were in the hotel at the time of the siege. along with seven others from the u.s. embassy. all made it out safely. >> about a dozen americans, including chief of mission personnel in that dozen, were
rescued. >> two american special operators helped the mali special forces and first responders. one was at the hotel, helping move people to a secure location as they exited. another helped coordinate from a joint operations center. mali police questioned this hostage about what she had seen. did you see them? no. but you heard the shots being fired? yes. two al qaeda-linked groups claimed responsibility, but not isis. followers of mukt ar bin muktiar. seized a oil facility three years ago. in june the u.s. military sent two f-15s to libya to kill muktiar. yesterday hillary clinton warned americans to not solely focus on isis. >> let's not forget al qaeda. they still have the most sophisticated bomb-makers,
ambitious plotters and active affiliates in places like yemen and north africa. >> the u.s. military and the french legion have worked to train mali's counterterrorism forces since rebels took control of northern mali. setting up a state in 2012. in response, the french military sent 4,000 troops in january 2013. the u.s. helped the french with airlift and intelligence. there are 3,000 french soldiers spread out across five countries in africa. mali, moauritania, birkenno fasta. >> the siege which lasted ten hours ended before the u.s. drone could get there. brett? >> jennifer griffin live at the pentagon, thank you. france is calling on its european union partners to tighten their boarders to help avoid a repeat of last friday's terror massacre that has now resulted in 130 deaths. correspondent steve harrigan reports from paris a week after the slaughter. >> the manhunt continues for at
least one of the paris attackers. as french police carried out 182 raids overnight and seized 76 weapons. in addition, police discovered a third body at the site of the massive siege north of paris wednesday. which forensic experts are working to identify. also killed in that raid, the terrorist ringleader, abdelhamid abaaoud. and his cousin, 26-year-old hasna ate bowitboulhchen. one week after the shootings, the wider impact from the attack beginning to be felt across europe. interior ministers agree to restrict free movement between european borders and to strengthen external borders. they agree to store data of passengers flying from european city force a year. the moves reflect frustration after reports that abaaoud, one
of the most wanted men in europe was able to move freely tweer syria and belgium. >> we must leave behind empty promises and procrastination and slowness. if not, europe will lose its way. >> we estimate there are 5,000 european nationals, that are classified as suspected foreign fighters. these europeans that have been radicalized very often on the internet that have travelled to syria and iraq, have been radicalized by the conflict experience. >> russian long-range bombers and cruise missiles have destroyed 15 oil refineries controlled by isis in an effort to choke off cash flow to the terrorist organization. russian president vladimir putin has praised the military action, but says there's still a lot of work to do to eliminate serious terrorists and to protect russia from possible attacks. french war planes continue to strike isis positions in syria. while the russian military has also intensified its attacks on isis since confirming a bomb
destroyed a russian passenger jet over egypt. the french senate voted to extend france's state of emergency for another three months. that gives more power to police and security services, and the ability to act without judicial oversight. the u.n. security council has just passed a resolution calling this a common war. and for all nations to do everything they possibly can to destroy the islamic state in iraq and syria. brett? >> steve harrigan, live early saturday morning in paris. steve, thanks. six men from pakistan and afghanistan have been caught after making it across the southern border into arizona. the department of homeland security says the group was apprehended monday, along with two suspected smugglers. this comes on the heels of that report we brought you, of five syrians detained in honduras earlier this week. attempting to travel to the u.s. on forged greek passports. so far, no known links to isis or other terror organizations have been revealed.
one day after a stinging rebuke from democrats and republicans in congress, over syrian refugees, president obama is trying to change the subject to possible weaknesses in the visa program. but it is the dissension among democrats that makes his veto threat on the refugee bill tenuous. correspondent kevin corke is traveling with the president and reports tonight from kul ala lump lumpur, malaysia. >> president obama has an intense battle within his own party as the rate of the syrian refugees raged none washington. yesterday, 47 house democrats helped to make audiotape veto-proof majority in passing a bill that would implement stricter screening procedures for refugees. requiring homeland security, the fbi director and the national intelligence director to certify to congress that each refugee is not a security threat before they could be admitted into the u.s. but just last month it was comey
himself who admitted to congress there are limitations to vetting refugees. >> we can only query against that which we have collected. >> undeterred, white house officials say the president would veto anything that restricts the ability of the united states to help the vulnerable. >> the fact is, that america has always been open to allowing people from war-torn countries who are subject to incredible hardship and repression, violence. to find refuge in our country. >> whether the house will get a chance at a veto override vote sun certain. harry reid has vowed to block the house bill. this as third-ranking senate democrat new york's chuck schumer has called for a pause in the plan that would allow up to 10,000 syrian refugees to enter the u.s. over the next year. but clearly republican senators think the battle is far from over. some believe they can secure the
stroets outflank the white house on the issue. >> we have some peculiar rules, including the need for 60 votes. but i think we can get the democrats, at least six to eight democrats to come on board. >> it is the essence of reasonableness and common sense to think we shouldn't be bringing in tens of thousands of refugee who is may include isis terrorists. >> have a time-out on syrian refugees until we can figure out what we're doing. it is clear to me that isil and other groups can infiltrate the refugee flow. but the refugees are a symptom of a failed policy. >> brett, what the white house is telling us is they want to make a tweak to the visa waiver program. right now it lets people from 38 different countries come into the u.s. for short periods of time without the need for a visa. given the security environment critics say that's little more than political sleight of hand. >> kevin corke traveling with the president, thank you. up next, what exactly did
donald trump say about a possible muslim database? first here's what some fox affiliates around the country are covering. miami, with a spirit airlines flight forced to turn around after two passengers allegedly made a bomb threat shortly after takeoff. the plane was inspected, no explosives were found. after returning to ft. lauderdale airport. fox 5 in new york, with police commissioner bill bratton taking the subway today in an apparent effort to reassure commuters. bratton went from city hall to grand central station. security has been beefed up following the paris attacks in new york. a live look at chicago, from our facility fox 32, the big story there tonight, preparations for the season's first big snowstorm. up to ten inches are expected in the city's northwest suburbs and in parts of central and eastern iowa. already snowing in south dakota. winter storm watches are also in effect for northern indiana tonight. that is tonight's live look outside the beltway from "special report," we'll be right back.

donald trump is once again taking heat from his republican opponents and democrats for something he now says he never said. this all has to do with possible databases for muslims in america. so what did trump actually say? here's chief political correspondent carl cameron. >> after filing to appear on the nation's first primary ballot in new hampshire, ben carson disagreed with donald trump's support for a nationwide database for muslims. >> if we're going to pick out a particular group of people based on their religion, based on their race, based on some other thing, that's -- setting a pretty dangerous precedent, i believe. >> today trump tweeted quote, i didn't suggest a database, a reporter did. we must defeat islamic terrorism and have surveillance, including a watch list to protect america. here's what he told the
reporter. >> i would certainly implement that. perhaps a little, there should be a lot of systems, beyond databases, we should have a lot of systems. >> hillary clinton tweeted this is shocking rhetoric. it should be denounced by all seeking to lead this country. carly fiorina argues securing the homeland requires defeating isis over there so we don't have to fight them over here. >> it doesn't mean we have to put 20,000 or 010,000 boots on the ground but it does mean only united states of america can lead the fight against isis. our allies expect support and resolve from us. president obama has not been providing it. and i will. >> rubio and trump among others argue in addition to mosques, any entity fomenting terrorism must be stopped. >> it's not about closing down mosques, it's about closing down any place, any place where radicals are being inspired. >> if in fact there are mosques where there's a lot of activity going on that's radicalized people, they must be treated
differently. >> jeb bush finds it abhorrent. >> i find it abhorrent that donald trump is suggesting we register people. that haunts back to a time that no one wants it go back to. you talk about closing mosques. you talk about registering people. and that's just wrong. >> the new day for america su r superpac backing john kasich, trump tweeted, watch kasich squirm. trump's lawyers wrote a warning letter threatening to sue the kasich superpac. which said essentially you can't sue isis and the role of commander-in-chief requires leadership. not lawyers. >> there was an incident on the plane with governor chris christie. >> united airlines described an individual on the plane who got removed as a disruptive passenger. san francisco police said flight
crew was told he was taking cell phone pictures of them. asked the passenger to delete the photos and he did. christie and his aide didn't interact with him in any way, it's unclear if the new jersey state trooper who was his security detail did or did not. the man has been detained and released and he told police he didn't know christie was on the plane. >> another public transportation question. >> the last one when he was on the train and a little too cloud lo loud in the quiet car. democrats have blocked a republican supermajority in a mississippi state house because of a straw. that's a tie in this month's election was broken. democratic bo eaten picked up a larger straw than the republican challenger. eaten's win keeps the gop from achieving a three-fifths majority. tulios will challenge the reoutcome. the florida man who piloted a drone on to the capital grounds has entered a guilty
plea. the attorney says he will ask for probation and prosecutors have agreed not to ask for more than ten months in prison. hughes said his april 15th stunt was a way to call attention to the influence of big money in politics. convicted israeli spy jonathan pollard is out of prison tonight. his release with conditions is the latest move in a three decades long saga that's been an added irritant in already-frosty relations among allies. >> jonathan pollard, his wife esther by his side, checked in at a federal probation office in new york city, where his lawyers say he'll be living and working. >> i have no comments, sorry. i can't say anything right now. >> while he didn't have much to say, his attorneys are challenging the terms of his parole which they call oppressive. pollard must remain in the u.s. for five years, he will also have to wear an electronic bracelet with a gps tracking
system. and any computers he uses, even for work, are subject to monitoring and inspection. still, pollard is a free man with many friends, including israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu who wants the u.s. to release pollard to israel wb many consider him a hero. >> the people of israel welcome the release of jonathan pollard. as someone who raised his case before successive u.s. presidents many times. i long for this day. >> pollard was a naval intelligence analyst who was convicted of selling intelligence secrets to israel. he was arrested on november 21st, 1985, outside the israeli embassy in washington. where he was seeking asylum. and then was sentenced to life in federal prison in 1987. pollard was paroled this summer. his case sometime strained u.s. and israeli relations over the years and was used as a barkening chip in some political negotiations -- bargaining chip. the question now, will israeli
leaders try to bargain for pollard's release to israel? pollard said he would renounce his american citizenship and never return to the united states, if allowed to move to israel. but both the white house and justice department have said, that there are no plans to alter the terms of his parole. brett? >> john huddy, thank you. still ahead, if there is a terror threat on the homeland, will the u.s. government keep you informed? surprising details, next. first, president obama wants the u.s. supreme court to make a decision on his immigration plan. get fast-acting, long-lasting relief from heartburn with it neutralizes stomach acid and is the only product that forms a protective barrier that helps keep stomach acid in the stomach where it belongs. for fast-acting, long-lasting relief. try gaviscon®.
president obama is going do roll the dice on his immigration plan with the u.s. supreme court. after two federal courts have refused to allow him to implement it. correspondent rich edson has details from the white house. >> with 14 months remaining in president obama's term. his administration asking the supreme court to revive his administration's executive actions on immigration before he leaves office. a federal judge and the fifth u.s. circuit court of appeals have halted implementation of those executive actions. they are designed to allow more than four million in the united states illegally an opportunity to stay here. of those lower-court decisions and in his request today, the administration's top supreme court counselor, solicitor general donald verilli write, that ruling will allow states to frustrate the federal government's enforcement of the nation's immigration laws. it will force millions of people to continue to work off the books without the option of lawful employment to provide for their families. and legal experts say if this administration wants to enact its executive actions on
immigration, they're going to need a victory from the supreme court and one this term. >> i think that they will take the case up this term. and make a decision by june. allowing the administration to start implementing the program nationwide immediately after that ruling. >> administration challengers have been successful in federal court, 26 states are suing the administration charge thagt white house is abusing its authority on this. one of those states is texas. the attorney general there is ken paxton. in a statement his office says quote, the president said himself more than 20 times, that he didn't have the authority to unilaterally rewrite immigration law. we stand ready to continue defending the rule of law as we lead a 26-state coalition against the president's unconstitutional use of executive power. now the administration argues that congress isn't fully funding the administration to deport everyone who is here illegally. therefore it is choosing who to keep in the country. back to you, brett. >> rich, thank you. stocks were up today, the dow gained 91, the s&p 500
finished ahead 8. for the week the dow gained 3.33 percentage points, the s&p 500 was up 3.25. the nasdaq finished ahead 3.66. volkswagen's emissions cheating scandal is widening. the epa said software allowing six-cylinder diesel engines to cheat on pollution tests is on more vehicles than previously thought. vw has denied the software on those larger cars was intended to fool the tests. it has admitted using similar software on four-cylinder vehicles to get around emissions regulations. you will not believe the lyrics to a song a teacher taught her students about muslims. next. jeb bush: leadership means you've got to be all in.
it's not about yappin'. it's not about talking. it's about doing. i know how to do this because i was privileged to serve in florida for eight years. and we turned the systems upside down that weren't working. 1.3 million new
jobs were created. we cut taxes every year. income rose in people's pockets. people were lifted out of poverty. children started to learn. as president of the united states, i pledge to you that i will solve problems. announcer: right to rise usa is responsible for the content of this message.
officials at princeton university are considering removing the name and likeness of u.s. president woodrow wilson from campus. after student sit-in to protest his alleged racist legacy. wilson was the university's president before serving in public office. he was known as the leader of the progressive movement. but he supported racial segregation. which was legal and public policy at the time. the university has also agreed to enhance cultural competency
training for staff. critics question the moves. one saying quote, expunging woodrow wilson from princeton amounts to rewriting history. not something a university should be doing. double trouble in the classroom. starting in california, a seventh grade teacher created a song about the religion of islam. the song created a storm. one lyric said quote, they might only have one god, but they can make an explosion. parents protested that the school board meeting. one told a local tv station, the tune pushed students to believe that maybe allah is the only god and maybe they should start following him. that i'm not okay with the council for american islamic relations, c.a.r.e. is not happy, telling the "orange county register" that words like explosion, because they support the idea that terrorism is supported by religion. in utah a junior high school has apologized to students and teachers for an assignment to create a propaganda poster for a
terrorist organization. the assignment was pulled after a parent expressed concern that their child would end up on an fbi watch list for researching terrorist propaganda. finally a massive clerical error in georgia. that's how georgia secretary of state brian kemp describes a technology staffer in his office illegally revealing the personal identification information including social security and driver's license numbers for more than six million registered voters. cds with the files were sent to 12 organizations, including media outlets and political parties. the secretary of state says all 12 discs have been recovered or destroyed and the information has not been copied or otherwise disseminated. the employee responsible has been fired. so do you feel safe from terrorism? do you feel that if something happens, the u.s. government will keep you and your family informed? those are questions many americans of course have tonight in the light of the terror attacks in paris last week and mali today.
chief washington correspondent james rosen has the alarming details about just what's going on and what's not with the government's outreach to you. >> we are considering revising our end-task system. the national threat advisory system which we've never used. >> that admission by homeland security secretary jeh johnson last month that the obama administration has never once used its own terror threat alert system contrasted starkly with the promises made on the system's behalf when johnson's predecessor, janet neopolitano unveiled it five years ago. >> it will provide alerts based on specific credible information about potential terrorist activity. >> except it hasn't. a review by fox news finds the twitter feed for the national threat advisory system reflects not a single tweet since coming online in january of 2001. ditto for the system's facebook page. >> everywhere people are saying
what is the government telling us? the government is not telling us anything. >> at the time, dhs claimed its timely use of social media would make the new system more effective than the old color-coded threat alert system put in place by the bush administration. after 9/11. the color-coded system had its detractors. >> it's hard to tell whether you're yellow or green. what's the criteria. >> but the system did issue alerts, the dhs official tells fox news that the agency is reviewing its unused alert system even as the agency shares more targeted and restricted information with its counterterrorism partner agencies and with key commercial sectors like shipping and aviation. with two air france flights originating in u.s. airports recently diverted from their flight paths due to bomb threats and heightened concerns post paris, others have raised questions about how well informed the american citizen really is. >> i'm afraid that what the u.s. government has been doing all
along is making people feel more comfortable. you see all the people walking around in uniforms. it's theater to make people feel more relaxed. but nothing really changes until a disaster occurs. that's unfortunate. >> as for the internal review, at dhs of the agency's much-touted terror alert system it has never once used, a spokesman for secretary jeh johnson declined to say how long said review has been under way nor how long they expect it to take. brett? >> james, thank you. another friday fraught with terror. last week paris, today, mali. we'll talk about what it all means and the politics surrounding all of these issues, including the refugee issue and muslim databases, when the panel joins me after a quick break. type 2 diabetes doesn't care who you are.

operations forces have more leeway in iraq. we have all along underestimated isis. both in terms of how tough it will be to root them out in syria and iraq. but also, their ability to extend beyond that area to, to europe and potentially also to the united states. >> former defense secretary robert gates on with neil cavuto this afternoon on a day when another terrorist attack took the headlines, took a lot of air time on cable news in mali. at least 20 killed now. one of them an american in a hotel. we can tell you from a "reuters" report, bursts of gunfire were heard from the assailants, went through the hotel, room by room, floor by floor. according to one senior security source there. witnesses telling "reuters" some people were freed by the attackers after showing they do
recite verses from the koran. while others managed to escape or were brought out by security forces, that situation is over now. and the attackers killed two al qaeda groups, not isis, taking credit for that so far. let's bring in our panel. charles lane, opinion writer for the "washington post." nina easton, columnist for "fortune" magazine and syndicated columnist, charles krauthammer. chuck, what about this and the context of what we're seeing really around the world on the terrorist threat? >> well it, when you thought it couldn't get any more worrisome and troubling, you're reminded that al qaeda is still not gone. this is apparently an offshoot of the same group that had taken over big oil complex and killed 38 other people in algeria not that long ago. and the possibility that there will be some kind of sick competition now developing between isis and al qaeda is raised by this mali attack. that this is how they compete for recruits. showing who can kill the most innocent civilians. i think there's probably an element of continuing to probe
and attack france because mali of course is a country that france had essentially rescued from islamic terrorism through military intervention. so clearly, we're talking about a global threat. we're talking about one that is pressing its advantage at a moment when the major powers in the world, united states, russia and france are still struggling to get their act together in terms of their response and. >> not only the refugee issue, but also now this database question. and we did a piece, carl cameron did it earlier, butabout what donald trump was asked, we want to play the full sound byte. about what he was asked, what he answered and get some analysis of how this plays in 2016.
[ inaudible ] >> there should be a lot of systems, beyond databases, we should have a lot of systems. and today you can do it. but right now we have to have a border. we have to have strength. we have to have a wall and we cannot let what's happening to this country happen any longer. [ inaudible ] >> i would certainly implement that. absolutely. >> how would that work? >> it would stop people from coming in illegally. we have to stop people from coming into our country illegally. >> specifically how do you duly get them registered? >> it would be good management. you have to do good management procedures. and we can do that. that's nice. >> do you go to mosques and sign people up? >> different places. you sign them up at different places, it's all about management. our country has no management. >> sign them up at different places. a lot of people said he was talking about the wall. this is what donald trump tweeted out today. i didn't suggest a database, a reporter did. we must defeat islamic terrorism and have surveillance, including
a watch list to protect america. nina, what about this? >> he's trying to step back from what people perceived as a case where he was saying muslim who is are already here in the country should be part of a broad database which of course is offensively historically, politically on so many levels. so i, and then he went into like we have to guard our borders and -- >> he says -- >> he's saying -- but i think, it was, it was perceived as that. and so it got into the body politic, this talk of registering muslims and people of course reacting to that. and you know, i have to say between this sort of petulant president and provocateur like donald trump talking about lou we should treat potentially talking about how we should treat muslims here. i would say like let's take a deep breath and look back to somebody who fought a very muscular counterterror war and was also embracing of american
values at home and that's george w. bush in the days after 9/11. who went to the islamic center, after that. went to, went to that national cathedral service. i was there, he had an imam speak. he talked about muslims as our friends, muslims in american as our friends and taxpayers, even. i think it's something, you can do both. i think can you hold on to american values. there is a real, going back to the president's pet lance. there is a real fear about refugees, it's a realistic fear. doesn't need to you know, lecture people about it. let's have a bipartisan conversation about it. >> quickly back to this issue, does it move the needle? does it affect anything on how this played out? >> i don't think it plays out within the republican nomination. i think what's going on, the republicans aren't forfeiting, it's a talent of theirs, an enormous opportunity. here we are discussing as we are, the issue of registering muslims who presumably have been here for generation or so. whether or not he said it he spoke in a word, hard to know
exactly what he meant. he said i didn't bring it up, the other guy did okay, who cares who brought it up, you could have said no. it's so incoherent it's hard to draw a conclusion. why are we discussing the registration of muslims? at the lowest ebb of the obama presidency in terms of its effectiveness abroad, is that the lowest, the whole world watched him in turkey. when he was, he was absolutely feckless, he was petulant, he was weak and look at the results of his policy? look at syria. all the way around the world. and instead of looking at that, arguing about that, bringing up that, which is the weakest element in the democratic campaign. and hillary has to answer as well as a former secretary of state. we are talking about absurd issues like registration of muslslims. >> and they are talking about the other things as well. it just came up today. chuck -- >> but it's not an immigrant issue.
that's a side issue. it's a distraction on a cul-de-sac. the real issue, the failure of the policy against radical islam. >> on the refugee issue, 47 democrats voted on this house bill. that's potential problem for the president. especially if they attach it to the continuing resolution. which funds the government. which runs out december 11th. there, it's a potential problem that he's going to be the one that's forcing the government shutdown on this issue of getting syrian refugees into the country. >> president perhaps because he was traveling and was at the end of his supply line of political information, has wound up on the wrong end of a 54% majority, our "washington post"/abc poll shows today, who oppose admission of any refugees, not just from syria, but from the middle east generally. that's groundswell. i happen to disagree with it but there is, you can't deny, there is a groundswell of public opinion in this country. against admitting any refugees. >> well the bill --
>> that is -- >> the bill doesn't do that. >> it strengthens. i also think -- >> i think the president has gotten himself out into a position that he thought was you know right down the middle. and it turns out it's not, politically. >> last word? >> i think there's, the president has not done a very good job at all of communicating what the current vetting process entails. nearly two-year process. mostly aimed at vulnerable populations, women, children and people who have been subject to terror and so forth. violence, and that they, actually michael chert-ooff, wh who is a bush homeland security endorsed the current vetting process. but it could be, it could be strengthened. but people need to understand what's out there. rather than just saying we're just going to let all of these tens of thousands of people in. and again, i go back to this, there's a serious bipartisan conversation to have, which we saw in the house about strengthening that.
and knowing what's there already. >> next up, the friday lightning round featuring the casino. rpet where our next arrival is... whoa! toenail fungus!? fight it! with jublia. jublia is a prescription medicine used to treat toenail fungus. use jublia as instructed by your doctor. are you getting this?! most common side effects include ingrown toenail, application site redness, itching, swelling, burning or stinging, blisters, and pain. oh, epic moves, big j! fight it! getting ready for your close-up? ask your doctor if jublia is right for you. visit our website for savings on larger size.
come happy birthday. i just had a heart attack... and now i have a choice. for her. for them. and him. a choice to take brilinta. a prescription for people who've been hospitalized for a heart attack. i take brilinta with a baby aspirin ...no more than 100 mg. as it affects how well it works. it's such an important thing to do to help protect against another heart attack. brilinta worked better than plavix. and even reduced the chances of dying from another one. don't stop taking brilinta without talking to doctor. since stopping it too soon increases your risk of clots in your stent, heart attack, stroke, and even death. brilinta may cause bruising or bleeding more easily or serious, sometimes fatal bleeding. don't take brilinta if you have bleeding, like stomach ulcers.
there it goes. around and round. there are fewer spots on the casino roulette wheel. you have $100 on chips. where are you going to put them on the eventual nominee of the party. chuck? >> i have $30 on trump. this is new for me. i had been a skeptic but i have finally caved to the reality that he is sticking there at the top of the polls. and that's almost $1 for every point he has had the
clear clear politics average. belief that he is like will you the establishment alternative. you see i have very little down for jeb but that's, you know, that's my side bet and i put $5 down on chris christie because this week he won the george will prime march. he got a very favorable column from our colleague here at fox. reflective of a broader feeling that he has run a pretty good campaign even though still very far down in the polls. >> okay. we asked people on twitter and facebook to weigh in. jim has cruz 50, trump 30, rubio 10. carly fiorina 10. steven has rubio at 60. cruz 30. trump 10. and grace has $75 on donald trump, 25 on ted cruz. okay. nina? >> grace likes trump. i kind of look like this increasingly as two buckets antiestablishment and insider bucket.
so i'm going to, you know, the tom of my outsider bucket would be trump at 30. and then with cruz at 10 and carson at 10, kind of behind him. my establishment bucket would be led by rubio with christie and bush behind him. >> charles? >> it's getting dull because i agree with all of you. i have got rubio at the top. i was predicting him before it was cool, and i stay there because i do think he is the one that the democrats fear the most. trump undeniable up. there is number two. >> that is the most money you have put on him. >> about, yeah. you know, as the other candidates dwindle away, his chances increase, of course. then there is cruz, bush, christie has my long shots and i'm so depressed by the field that i'm back on the bottle of wine, women, and song with 5. >> all right. quickly, winners and losers quick round? >> loser john kerry for the most ridiculous yet
revealing statement about charlie hebdo attack revealing his hidden view perhaps obama's when victims of terrorism our victims in the west had it coming. my winner owe obamacare. healthcare insurance. reports losing $600 million on the obamacare exchanges pulling out. it's the beginning of the end of obamacare if the large ensurers -- insurers lose money and think of pulling out. >> mara, my windsor paul ryan. he put together a bipartisan coalition as you mentioned earlier, including democrats to strengthen the vetting procedures of syrian refugees coming into the country and managed to kind of put obama in the corner at the same time. my loser would be ted cruz. and that's because of his vote on limiting nsa metadata collection. i think these terrorist
attacks now, i think that's going to hurt him and rubio did a very good job this week of pointing that out. >> winner and loser? >> i will start with my loser which would be donald trump for the reasons we are talking about, namely he really blundered into this database controversy. >> emails go to chuck lane. >> by seemingly not to really pay attention to the question was that asked and to not think it through and answer if n. a very off handed slap dash way that landed himself in trouble. my winner is going to be the french security services for finally getting their man in that ugly shootout at the end of the week. it's been a tough time for france. i think people will be asking a lot of tough questions about their failure to anticipate those attacks but let's pat them on the back for this one victory this week. >> fran sway hollande. >> stay tuned for your friday feedback. what makes this simple salad the best simple salad ever?
big day? ah, the usual. moved some new cars. hauled a bunch of steel. kept the supermarket shelves stocked. made sure everyone got their latest gadgets. what's up for the next shift? ah, nothing much. just keeping the lights on.
