[cheers and applause] >> well enthusiastic crowd and donald trump is very happy. governor sarah palin endorsing him. "on the record" will continue to monitor this breaking endorsement. and former g.o.p. presidential candidate herman cain is standing by to go "on the record." his response is next. >> this is a woman that from day one i said if i ever do this, i have to get her support. you owned your car for four years, you named it brad. you loved brad. and then you totaled him. you two had been through everything together. two boyfriends, three jobs... you're like nothing can replace brad.

i've had moderate to severe plaque psoriasis most of my life. but that hasn't stopped me from modeling. my doctor told me about stelara® it helps keep my skin clearer. with only 4 doses a year after 2 starter doses... ...stelara® helps me be in season. stelara® may lower your ability to fight infections and increase your risk of infections. some serious infections require hospitalization. before starting stelara® your doctor should test for tuberculosis. stelara® may increase your risk of cancer. always tell your doctor if you have any sign of infection, have had cancer, or if you develop any new skin growths. do not take stelara® if you are allergic to stelara® or any of its ingredients. alert your doctor of new or worsening problems including headaches, seizures, confusion and vision problems. these may be signs of a rare, potentially fatal brain condition. serious allergic reactions can occur. tell your doctor if you or anyone in your house needs or has recently received a vaccine. in a medical study, most stelara® patients saw at least 75% clearer skin and the majority were rated as cleared or minimal at 12 weeks. stelara® helps keep my skin clearer. ask your doctor about stelara®.
book, out today, the right problems. mr. herman cain goes "on the record." good evening, sir. >> hello, greta. thank you. >> and the big question for donald trump tonight is the evangelical vote in iowa. governor sarah palin came, in gave that speech on behalf of the candidate, what do you think? >> i don't think it's a lock. and i don'tu+wr5jy i think he is going to pick up some support because of sarah palin coming in but i don't think it's going to be a game changer are. what i think potentially could be the biggest game changer. occurred in iowa. not to vote for ted cruz. so that might also hurt trump and help ted cruz. we have to see how this plays out. maybe the cumulative effect of sarah palin's endorsement. what governor bran stead said, those two things combined, may change one, two, and three in the upcoming iowa caucuses. >> well, it certainly seems
that governor palin tapped into the same thing that donald trump always tapsz into, the anti-g.o.p. establishment. >> yep. >> basically i'm madder than hell type group with. the people who are mad at washington and want to switch. is, you know, is that a significant -- i mean, did she do that? number one, do you agree with me? and secondly is that significant in the state of iowa? >> i do agree with you, but i think that's going to have a bigger impact nationally than necessarily in iowa. because i think this anger that she talked about and donald trump has talked about is expressed more across the country, maybe so in iowa. one other comment about this whole idea of him trying to appeal to the evangelical vote. >> i believe there is something confusing what we are talking about. i'm a christian. when they say evangelical, if you look at the poll, they define it a little bit differently. they say it's somebody who probably goes to church a couple of times a week. christianity is very strong.
i think vote that he is trying to tap into. she is trying to tap into. but i think it's going to have a bigger impact across the country than just in iowa. >> all right. big day today for you, sir, a new book out.az >> "the right problem, what every candidate and member of congress ought to be working on." and the reasons arethey are note right problems, so they're not giving us the right solutions. that's what this book is about. the right problems and the right solutions, such that the voters will know the right questions to ask of their representatives, their senators, and whoever is trying to get their vote. that's why i wrote this book and i was inspired by what i learned when i ran for president. and four years later, congress, the president, they are still not working on the right problems. that's what inspired my new book. >> and what perfect timing, i might add for people to go out and buy it mr. herman cain, thank you, sir. >> you are welcome, greta.
senator ted cruz and jumping on the trump. palin endorsing donald trump and no doubt this bombshell endorsement is an ache a seller rant intense fuse. cruz staff from earlier today and then senator cruz on the big news. >> sarah palin has been a champion for the conservative cause. and if she was going to endorse donald trump sadly she would be endorsing someone who had has held progressive views all their life. >> i love sarah palin. sarah palin is fantastic. without her friendship and support, i wouldn't be in the senate today. so, regardless of what sarah decides to do in 2016, i
will always remain a big, big fan of sarah palin. >> the "on the record" political panel is here from the daily beast. betsy woodruff and from "u.s. news and world report." david catanese. obviously rick didn't get the memo. he whacked palin and by the afternoon, senator ted cruz pretty smart saying that, i think. >> candidate correcting what his spokesman got a little bit out over the skis early on. you don't want to fight sarah palin. the biggest impact from all of this is that it's t. stifles ted cruz's momentum in his must-win state of iowa. and he has to deal with this nowcx for 24 to 48 hours. on defense, with people asking why didn't you, the conservative candidate, the guy who supposedly uniting all the conservatives didn't get one of the biggest figures in the conservative movement over the last decade? because she is rallying with trump in iowa tomorrow, and into oklahoma, i think this is is a bad 48 hours for ted cruz. >> betsy, your thoughts?
>> i agree. i think even though getting palin's endorsement if is a big win for trump is an even bigger loss for ted cruz. we can't overestimate how much clout palin has in iowa. in 2014 she endorsed joni hurst. the democratic messaging strategy against ernst was painting her against sarah palin. that didn't bother iowa voters very much they rallied for her and she is a much respected member of the senate. palin's track record is successful. guy she endorseside another u.s. senator. i thinkkfáaople in the national media are going to embarrassingly under estimate how beneficial this is for trump and how much of a loss it is for cruz. >> what's the impact? she made it very evident governor palin that there is a big divide in the republican party. sheíí specifically talks about antiestablishment or the establishment g.o.p. i mean, she is drawing a line right down the middle of that. >> you sort of have a divide between the antiestablishment wing of the party in this cruz-trump matchup.
we all sort of thought there would be an establishment candidate rising at this point. some people still believe it could be marco rubio. the polling doesn't bear that out. the3iyf$sáá that out. we are 13 days out and it is increasingly looking like a trump/cruz race and palin is a value day or two -- valid validator for trump. nobody talk about jeb or marco or the rest of these guysékk >> also, i think one interesting thing about interesting thing about palin's! has among antiestablishment figures. mark lavine and rush limbaugh with a on their shows criticizing trump for how much he went after cruz. saying trump was going after cruz for the wrong reasons in the wrong ways. this isn't just grass roots versus establishment it is grass roots versus grass
this is a fox news alert. and get ready for not just some, but lots of snow. a major winter storm now threatening much of the east coast. 50 million americans from south carolina all the way up to massachusetts could get clobbered with snow. fox news meteorologist janice dean is tracking it all. janice? >> i know this is going to be the talk of the beltway, greta. starting tonight and heading in to thursday and friday. we haven't even gotten our storm together yet and we're still talking about perhaps one of the storms that we haven't seen in the d.c. area for at least a decade. so, let's watch it it rightf now we are dealing with some snow across the mississippi
and tennessee river valley. this is the first storm system we're going to watch bringing 3 to 6 inches of snow maybe wintry mix across the tennessee and mississippi valley. this one is is the one to watch as we head into friday. our low coming out of southeast, classic setup for our nor'easter, a wintry mix here for parts of the carolinas, into virginia. and then we are going to watch this develop off the coast. and this one could be a big one across the d.c. area. watching the low very carefully friday into saturday, that's the time line, this is one of our forecast models, and, again, right now the bulls eye looks to be around the d.c. area, west and north of the city where you could get upwards of a foot, maybe even 2 feet of snow. but one thing is for certain, the exact timing, how much snow, and where the low will track is still yet to be determined, greta. but, man, if this forecast comes true of over a foot, a foot and a half of snow around the d.c. area, oh my
gosh. that's going to be big news. >> janice, the whole area freaks out with just the prediction of a quarter it of an inch and they are paralyzed. i'm not going to be able to get home tonight and it hasn't started. >> you will get home tonight. it's just who is going to be shoveling on saturday. >> everyone goes nuts beforehand in this city. >> stay tuned. okay. back here in washington, president obama's executive action on immigration is now headed to the highest court in the land. the supreme court announcing it will review the president's controversial plan to shield 5 million illegal immigrants from deportation. fox news correspdent shannon bream. >> we found out they are going to take this up challenge led by texas 26 states saying we don't like the the president'sln executive action on saying 3 '.4 million estimated folks are not going to be deported even though they are here legally. what's interesting to me. obama administration that they heard this case because they lost below. so if the supreme court hadn't taken it, they would have just been losers. so they have another bite at
the apple. interesting to me that the justices said we are going to take the case but also announce we want you to brief this additional question did the president's executive actions violate article 2, section 36 the u.s. constitution that the president take care that the laws be faithfully executed. so the court is going beyond what the case has been so far. they are really going to take a close look at how far$i(w executive power goes. >> whether the president blew off his duty to enforce laws in the nonconstitutional language. >> and the thing is, they will hear it in april. decision in june. so right in the middle of the election. >> right before thej@ conventions too. anyway, shannon, thank you. good luck getting home the next three days. and you are about to hear directly from u.s. we were below the 88th southern parallel. we had traveled for over 850 miles. my men driven nearly mad from starvation and frostbite. today we make history. >>bienvenidos! welcome to the south pole! if you're dora the explorer, you explore.
marine amir heck malty, reporter jason rezaian and christian pastor syed abedini. each is undergoing medical evaluations while reuniting with family. just a short time ago for the first time we heard from marine amir hekmati about his four and a half years in a dangerous iranian prison. he also told us about the big moment, the moment he and his fellow americans were finally safe. >> i feel very lucky, like i said i feel alive for the first time. it's like being born again and i just really feel proud to be an american. >> how bad was it in there? >> well, it wasn't good. i spoke to that before. i was luckily able to get some of my distances on my treatment from prison and i do want to talk about that in more detail and i will. >> what was your biggest surprise once you got out? >> you know, i was at a point where i had just sort of accepted the fact that i was going to be spending 10 years in prison, so this was a surprise. and i just feel extremely
of my fellow marines, supporting me, really gave me the strength to put up with over four years of some very difficult times that me and my family went through. i'm grateful semper phi to all the marines out there. >> how do you feel yourself physically right now. >> right now i feel great. i have so much energy. like i said, i feel aleif for the first time. all the people out there who have been in prison. especially those imprisoned unjustly, i'm sure the other americans feel the same way, it takes such a toll on you. so to be out now with congressman kildee who has done so much and my family it's just amazing. i can't describe this feeling. >> how fellow americans on board? >> ecstatic, happy. anxious to get home. nobody really believed it everybody was just sort of in a state of disbelief. and we still are are. >> apparently there were
cheers as the flight left the iranian airspace. >> as soon as we got out ofq iranian airspace, champagne bottles were popped and the swiss are amazing. their hospitality. chocolates, veal was served. and we were on a private jet that usually the foreign minister of switzerland or the ambassadors use. so they really did an excellent job and we thank them for the hospitality. >> you seem so well. people will be stunned and delighted. >> i am well. i am only going to get better, i hope. this has really been an exceptional time for me. >> that was my colleague greg palkot in germany asking many of those questions of amir heck mattie. hekmati is a constituent of democratic congressman dan kildee who joins us. this is about your constituent. i just want to take about 15 seconds to give you a giant shoutout because you have been a strong advocate for your constituent and, boy, everyone back in michigan
should be proud. i pound you, congressman, so many times that i really want to give you a shoutout. good work. have you been on this since the beginning, sir. >> thanks, greta. i have got to say every timeñó i hear amir's voice. i just met him yesterday for the first time which seems odd because i feel like i know him so well. i get choked up when i hear him. isn't he just annual amazing american the way spoke? it's incredible. i have got to return comment, greta, thank you for raising this issue the way you did. it made a difference. it made a difference to him and also made a difference to getting him home. >> you know, thank you, congressman. like you, i love hearing his voice. where he says the first he felt alive for the first time. proud to be an american. he gives you a shoutout. i mean it's like, you know, this is amazing when you hear proud to be an american. it does get you choked up.
>> inkbe=99ñ i urged people. >> i knelt to do thank the swiss because, you know, what they did is incredible i think you could. champagne and chocolates and so much levy lifting. good for the swiss, right? >> yeah. i have been meeting with ambassadors who for years on this. he is always there. jip &c @&c@ happen. i consider him a friend now because i have gotten to know him so well with. we owe a great debt of gratitude to the swiss and to, and particular to ambassador hass. and amir is a gracious guy. he recognized that. and said so. >> you know, people may forget, amir was in custody four and one half years. and in the beginning wasn't he sentence to do death?
>> he was. for months. first of all, he was gone and nobody knew where he was. then he was sentence to do death. you know, i told amir today, his story is not just an amazing story unto itself, but it's a testament to anybody who ever thinks that there is no hope, that all hope is lost. if anybody could have justified having that sense about him, it would be amir, in an iranian president with a death sentence and no way for us to talknl to anybody there. four and a half years later, walks out not just a free man, but a kind, thoughtful, articulate young man who we can all be very proud of. that gives hope to anybody who ever thinks that all hope is lost. >> indeed. congressman, i know that the other constituents you have are his mother and father is very i will back in michigan. and they are very excited to see him. i have got to tell you, let me say it again, i admire you immensely because have you been on this one working really, really hard. thank you, sir. thank you for joining us.
safe journey home. >> thanks, greta. >> and five americans total were freed in the prisoner exchange with iran. but one notable prisoner, a very important prisoner, was not included. at least a very important person. we don't even know if he is a prisoner. former fbi agent bob levinson, he disappeared in iran in 2007. that is nine years ago. the today the white house saying it has no idea where bob levinson is. >> we is have reason to believe that he no longer is in iran. and that's why we continue to press for information about his whereabouts. >> american bob levinson's family has not given up hope and wants america to not give up hope either. we "on the record" are going to continue to push for information about him. >> this is a fox news alert. a tragedy on a campaign trail. a volunteer for dr. ben carson's campaign has died in a car accident.

their mind according it a recent poll. i have spoke to a lot of people whofje÷ don't know if they will vote for donald trump or ted cruz it could blunt ted cruz's attack on donald trump's new york liberal values on things like abortion and gay marriage. sarah palin thinks she represents heartland values and conservatism and populism. >> so she is still popular there? >> you know, i don't know h she endorsed a lot of candidates in 200i who did not win their primary races. i think with a significant portion of people she is still is popular. with a race neck and neck in the polls between trump and cruz, every little bit is going to help trump. >> john mccormick going to help us in iowa. thank you, thank you for being with us. tomorrow night. right here at 7:00 p.m. eastern. and don't forget to go to gretawire and to facebook. there is a lot of activity that goes around on gretawire and facebook after the show. stick around go on our
