tv   The Five  FOX News  January 22, 2016 2:00pm-3:01pm PST

2:00 pm
flights delayed or canceled today. i think we're up to about 8,000 over the last couple of days going into the weekend. if you have nothing else to do this weekend but watch "the cost of freedom" and your money. and fox news and fox business. keep them on concurrently. that's all you can do. hello, i'm eric bolling, along with kimberly guilfoyle, ebony williams, dana perino and jesse waters, it's 5:00 in new york city and this is "the five." he's been the republican front-runner for months. his momentum nearly unstoppable. now there's a new campaign to try to take down donald trump. it's spear-headed by the "national review." it's new issue dedicated entirely to trump. labelling him a threat to conservatism. here's the editor, rich lowry. >> if you truly are a conservative, you believe in ideas and principles, it's not just attitudes and who you dislike. it's limited government, it's
2:01 pm
the constitution, it's liberty. those are the things that truly make this country special. and they are basically after-thoughts to donald trump. >> the so-called anti-trump manifesto features a compilation of essays from 22 conservative thinkers, trying to block trump from becoming the gop nominee. three of them were on megyn kelly's show last night. >> i know donald trump, i think he's a nice guy. i think he's got a fantast family. but that's not enough to me, anyway, to win over the white house, i want someone who is a great leader and a staunch conservative and i don't have to question their authenticity. >> to suggest that trump has had some kind of road to damascus, to a transformation just isn't true. up until three months ago, this is is a man who said he was a proud democrat. this sman who said he was a proud supporter of hillary clinton. i think people have to say, it's been a lot of fun up until now. >> we have to ask ourselves whether we're willing to set the precedent with donald trump and throwing away years and years
2:02 pm
and decades and centuries of conservative principles and values. >> and donald trump fighting back. >> the "national review" is a dying paper. its circulation is way down. not very many people read it any more. people don't think about the "national review." i guess they want to get a little publicity. that's a dying paper. >> we bring it around. throw this out here quickly, though. part of the, one of the knocks against the gop recently has been the bifurcation. now we're going to go further b bifurcating -- >> it's an opinion publication. they put together an impressive list of people. nevertheless, i don't want to have this happen again where romney lost. i want a republican in the white house. i want someone that can win and defeat hillary clinton. and put forth the ideas, principles that we have, right? for smaller government, limited government. less taxes. fighting strong for our military. national security and defense.
2:03 pm
so everyone is entitled to their opinion. but i'm telling you, it looks to me especially with just the recent polls and things that are coming out, that we've sceneriesly in the last few weeks, that he's got a very strong chance of taking iowa, south carolina, florida, and new hampshire. >> jesse, how does this play out in your world? >> i think politics is about principles. but it's also about emotion. and i think right now, this country is down on its knees wounded, begging for real leadership and finally a real, strong leader comes around. someone that can run the table. and everyone is now saying oh, he doesn't check this box. he doesn't check this box. you know what box is important to check? filling up 40,000 people stadiums on a tuesday night. that's the box that counts on election day. i don't think principles matter if you can't get elected and then institute those principles. and i think a lot of people right now are putting pure conservatism over the country.
2:04 pm
listen, this guy is teflon. he can go on "snl," "meet the press," do whatever. you going to throw that away because of something like he supports eminent domain? i heard eminent domain was a reason. come on, let's talk about his conservative principles on the three core issues -- donald trump is about. immigration, national security and jobs. he is the most conservative guy out there and he is setting the agenda. i would hate to see people not soldier up and fall in line, if he is the nominee. because this country is in pretty bad shape. >> you make a good point do they have to therefore, do they have to, this group of 22, if donald trump is the nominee. do they have to push back? or do they have to defend conservatism to the death, which would mean basically pulling away from backing the gop nominee. >> i don't know what they'll do. i think this symposium of the 22 people, i think what i read all 22 pieces. these are movement conservatives. they've spent their life and
2:05 pm
their careers focused on conservatism and so i actually think all the things that you said kimberly, i think they're trying to fight for those things, too. as an opinion magazine, this is what they've done. my dad when i was eight years old started this tradition with me where i had to readed "rocky mountain news" and the "denver post" before he got home from work and we would discuss articles. and after i graduated, we watched all the sunday shows and "national review" was one of the many magazines my dad got. i remember i sort of felt like oh, this speaks to me, i understand it. when i'm reading it i'm yeah, conservatism is going to last forever. 2016 will come and go in terms of the election. if donald trump becomes the nominee, will they vote for him over hillary clinton? i would imagine so. maybe not everybody. but i also think that this for me it exposed a rare weakness in donald trump's strategy, in that if you want to win in a republican nomination, you can
2:06 pm
win the nomination, but then in order to win the general you have to respect the big tenement and i feel like there's this part of the conservative wing of the party that has been accused of all sorts of things. insulted for several months. as soon as they say something, they get attacked as well. i actually think a lot of the pieces are thoughtful and measured. at the end of the day, will they vote for him over hillary clinton? they've been against hillary clinton for 20 years. and so i think they will. >> ebony -- >> i wish i had said that. case against hillary clinton. that's next. >> if this doesn't work and donald trump ends up being the nominee. isn't this 0 more fuel for the democrats to take shots at the, at donald trump now? >> well i don't know if it's fuel for the democrats, but i look at this cover and i thought another good day for donald trump. any time he can further the narrative of me versus the world, you know that's going to rile up the donald trump base, who is broad. because they like this notion of -- he is the underdog. even though he's been the front-runner for eight months,
2:07 pm
there's sort of a underdark skpi spirit to his candidacy. so this is a narrative that furthers that donald trump momentum. number two point on this, dana, you're right. true conservatives have a real problem with his candidacy. i don't think a lot of these people care about that. >> if the magazine is so pointless, and there's so few conservatives, why do they care? >> i don't think they care. i think his base doesn't care, true conservatives might. the gop nomination is no longer a reward for being the most conservative. it is about to jesse's point, who can resonate with the american voters, who will rile up their base. >>ky just say something, though? that most conservatives would say the reason the republicans lost in '08 and 2012 is because they didn't nominate somebody who was the most conservative. and the true conservative. so you can imagine why somebody who follows this would be a little confused. as to the points that you're making. >> i would also say to that,
2:08 pm
that we've been electing politicians for decades, who have screwed up the country. and so now all of these politicians are saying, oh yeah, let's have another politician in there. >> the "national review" actually blames the establishment for the rise of donald trump. >> so everybody is blaming the establishment. >> i do think it's nice to maybe have a businessman who is in there, who is a capitalist who might be able to change the game. think that's the insurgent campaign. >> i got to goat get to this one, as you can imagine trump's opponents -- >> the national review is a cherished conservative mouthpiece, it's been in existence for two generations. consistently conservative. and i think this the fact that they would have all of these distinguished journalists and thought leaders of the conservative cause join together to say that donald trump is not a conservative, is they're just telling the truth. >> i don't think donald is running as a movement conservative. he's running as against someone who is a populist, who is upset about the direction of this country. as am i. as are millions of americans, we
2:09 pm
have to know exactly what we're going to do about it. >> he supported barack obama's t.a.r.p. bailout for the big wall street banks. he supported barack obama's stimulus plan. his health care plan was as far as i can tell, indistinguishable from bernie sanders. voters all across this country are tired of being burned. go we bring it around kg. again, ebony points out, this may actually help him. >> he's king of the hill. everybody is going to try to take shots and take him down. that's what you do. you rumble. everybody wants to win, they want to be the nominee. they want to get into the white house. i like the hustle. they've got to be able to get after it but he's proven that he's able to take it and somehow with like the trump magic wand, turn it into a positive for him. so ultimately i think this might motivate the trump supporters, the trump train to really get after it even more and maybe get out there and for sure caucus, stranger things have happened. and turned around another way. >> any one want to take the other side of it? >> i'll say this, although their effort might be to bring them
2:10 pm
down, to kg's point, it's in going to work. they're making factual contradictions in donald trump's legacy if you will politically. the problem is he doesn't really resonate. >> one of the things that lowry mentioned was that they were fearful that donald trump as president could be bought by k street, by the lobbyists. it's one of the pillars of donald trump's candidacy that he can't be bought. so jesse points out, eminent domain and now donald trump's ability to be bought. do they have legs to stand on with this? >> absolutely not. trump is the one guy that probably can't be bought. if you just look at his track record, he's going to get in there and he's going to have a majority in the house and senate probably. what is he going to do, tax relief? going to increase the national security? you're going to put a wall down on the border? if he ever strays outside of that zone, conservatives in the house or the senate are going to knock some sense into him. i don't see a threat that all of
2:11 pm
a sudden he's going to go crazy and turn into this big liberal. >> i think that the republicans biggest enemy is wishful thinking. and that is, on the house probably stays because of the way that the districts are, and you could keep that a majority. but the senate is very much in play. and very key states. and if we finally when we after the voting starts, if we can start talking about general election demographics, when you look at those seven states, and the constituencies with which the republicans need to win at least more votes than they have in the past, women, hispanics and blacks if they can, then yeah, it is very likely that hillary clinton would be able to get into the white house easily. just because on demographics alone. the republicans have a huge amount of work to do. and donald trump is down with those three constituencies by a lot. >> i don't think he's down with blacks. as a matter of fact they're predicting he might perform just as well as reagan did with blacks. and hillary can't afford to lose
2:12 pm
any of that support with the black community if she does, she's toast. >> this senate in play thing. i hear quite a bit of lately. that's depending on a democrat winning. >> i actually think there's something interesting about ted cruz. i have been critical of ted cruz back in 2014 on the mid-term elections. remember when he started the senate conservatives fund. it was like the anti-nrsc. the anti-establishment one. if he wants to be the leader of the party. one of the jobs that the presidential candidate is to help make sure that your coattails are good and strong and you can pull other people across. imagine all of these senate candidates who are in tough elections, if ted cruz or donald trump or marco rubio or john kasich, are they going to have the kind of coattails that will help those senate candidates? i think that is something that people -- that's not is going to be what people worry about in iowa or new hampshire. for someone like a geek like me, i think about it. >> many establishment republicans have warmed up to the idea of a trump presidency, rush limbaugh knows why.
2:13 pm
>> they're behind themselves with hatred for ted cruz. that goes, goes beyond the ra rational. some are saying that they would actively publicly support and voight for hillary clinton over ted cruz, if there is a, an establishment shift here to trump. it is to cut cruz off at the pass. >> kg? >> yeah, i mean, listen, this is really now sounding like a two-man race, isn't it? i mean every day it's trump and cruz, that's it and that's what i think also the other candidates have to be worried about. it's like ultimately, i hope dana, like you're saying, the party would come together and rally behind whoever the candidate is, we don't know. the "national review," they'll make individual decisions. some are cruz supporters, some are not. let's see. but talk radio, conservative publications, and now also, a more involved, engaged i think
2:14 pm
republican you know, voters. and people out there that are actually getting more excited to kind of get involved in the process. i hope whoever your candidate is, you join behind whoever the gop choice is. >> talking about general, you're right, kg. about putting a republican in the white house, donald trump out of those two candidates has a better chance of drawing independents and moderate voters. ted cruz is the most conservative you guys have got. it will be difficult for the mid toll go that way. >> and you talk to people at the nrcc, the congressional race committee, they think that, they're planning ahead. they say if donald trump is the nominee, could he bring enough new voters to help us increase our majority? i think in a way again, republicans' biggest enemy is wishful thinking. the thing on rush limbaugh, we kind of talked about this yesterday. you could be anti-establishment for the last five months, if you were for donald trump. but now, if there are attacks against cruz, now you're the establishment for trump or cruz -- it's become so diluted.
2:15 pm
>> the establishment is realizing trump is polling at about 45%. >> south carolina -- so he might be able to coalesce everybody. if he has conservatives in the establishment -- now there's people calling trump the establishment candidate. >> they're saying he likes the establishment. >> all right -- >> how about just saying i like votes and i want to win and i'd like the "national review" readers to vote for me, too. >> all right. hopefully they vote for whoever the nominee is. because conservatives clearly more conservative than anyone on the democrat side, i would say. ahead, hillary clinton out with a new ad trying to convince voters she's the most prepared to be commander-in-chief. but will voters buy it? next.
2:16 pm
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. it's what you do. >>what took you so long? if you want to save fifteen percent or more on car insurance, you switch to geico. it's what you do. >>you did it, yay! iall across the state belthe economy is growing,day. with creative new business incentives, and the lowest taxes in decades, attracting the talent and companies of tomorrow. like in the hudson valley, with world class biotech.

2:18 pm

2:19 pm
. hillary clinton is trailing bernie sanders by eight points and clinton rolled out a new ad in iowa to convince voters that she's ready for the world's toughest job. the spot is reminiscent of the 3:00 a.m. ad she put out in 2008. >> the world the president has to grapple with. sometimes you can't even
2:20 pm
imagine. that's the job and she's prepared for it like no other. a tireless secretary of state standing up against the abuse of women and girls. negotiating a cease-fire in gaza. leading the diplomacy that keeps us out of war. the presidency is the toughest job in the world. and she's the one leader who has what it takes to get every part of the job done. >> i'm hillary clinton and i approved this message. >> as clinton tells her foreign policy credentials, former defense secretary bob gates points out that her poor judgment of using a private server probably enabled russia and iran to hack into her email. >> given the fact that the pentagon acknowledges they get attacked about 100,000 times a day, i think the odds are pretty high. >> kg, there's nothing i like more than watching your facial expressions during hillary clinton sound bytes. >> it's like a full jane fonda workout on my face. >> what do you think of her pitch, especially right in the aftermath of "13 hours."
2:21 pm
>> i think about caskets of dead americans and benghazi, honest to god, that's all i was thinking is line up the caskets with the american flag on it and then over that voiceover, her lies to the families, basically saying the families don't remember it right. she lied to them. what she knew and deliberately lied about. pushing the video. the whole thing is so horrific. that's what stands out i don't think she can tout anything else, as a success. during her time as secretary of state. i don't find that to be a positive persuasive or compelling ad on her part. >> i thought the timing of it was weird, eric. if you -- if anybody saw "13 hours" clear nobody in washington picked up a phone that night when they were calling. >> and again, that's, an account that michael bay took directly from the book, which is supposed to be a direct account from the people who were there. hillary clinton, in the last 24 hours, she's gone from, down eight to bernie sanders to up
2:22 pm
eight on bernie sanders and back down eight again. i think she may have even in the last couple of hours gone back up again. here's the point, it's neck and neck. it's too close to call. don't forget going into iowa, whatever o'malley gets, as long as it's not 15%, his votes or delegates, will go to somebody else. i mean she could feasibly lose iowa. she's getting smoked in new hampshire now. bill clinton did it in '92, he lost iowa and new hampshire and ended up being the nominee and the president. it's a tall order. >> right before we came to air, ebony, the state department made an announcement. by order of a judge, they were supposed to release all of the hillary clinton emails by january 29th. which would be next friday. the state department has notified the judge that because of the snowstorm today, they are going to be delayed by a month in getting those emails out. which means that pushes it past all of the major primaries through nevada. >> it looks beyond sketchy. except for the fact that
2:23 pm
ealready on both sides of the aisle kind of expect this ske h sketchine sketchiness, dodging the ball from the hillary clinton camp. it's a good message. at best, hillary clinton is at least arguable as to her effectiveness as secretary of state and that's kind of my biggest problem with her. if you've been in such close proximity to the ability to change, whether it's as first lady. u.s. senator, secretary of state and you have still failed at every opportunity to really make good on that in every way you deem necessary, and that's why you're running again for the presidency. my big issue with hillary clinton. >> the only thing she changed was her hairstyle. it changed like six times in that ad. i love the guy's voice in the ad. >> i wonder if they poll-tested that. >> it was resonating. i wanted to drink a budweiser after that i think the ad was slick, but full of lies. she said she kept america out of war. she voted for the iraq war and toppled gadhafi. she said she's prepared. not enough to protect the
2:24 pm
ambassador. if you look at her history. the russian reset was a joke. iran is flush with cash now. isis is on the march. our allies hate us. she lost $6 billion at the state department. nobody even knows -- >> it went missing. >> but i think the ad is actually targeted bernie and she's saying i'm battle-tested. i'm seasoned and bernie is in over his head. >> she did help the muslim brotherhood. >> before we go, kg, how does hillary get away with saying that her emails were never marked classified. even though the inspector-general keeps reporting that we found more and more -- >> it's a flagrant lie. i mean we, we know that they were marked. we know she deliberately had the headers removed because she knew she wasn't supposed to be using a private server. i mean this is, to me -- it's quite sneaky, because you know also that her staff, which sent her summaries, you take the information and summarize it and send it. and that email from whoever to
2:25 pm
hillary clinton would not have been marked classified. even though the information is classified. >> it's like a copy and paste. >> also she says she has no idea how to use any technology. like wipe the server clean with a cloth. but yet she knows how to ask her staff and instruct them to make a document nonpaper. >> it doesn't matter. it's already you knew or you should have known. at best it's negligence. are you that incompetent? i would argue the opposite. >> intent to even require that. i told you it was going to be a full block. >> still ahead, barbara bush is starring in a new spot to support her favorite candidate, next.
2:26 pm

2:29 pm
welcome back to "the five." the ad wars are heeding up and the gop front-runners, ted cruz
2:30 pm
and donald trump are at each other's throats. >> i'm donald trump and i approved this message. >> i want immigration reform to pass and that allows those who are here illegally to come in out of the shadows. >> the amendment would have allowed undocumented immigrants to remain in the u.s. permanently and obtain legal status, how do you square the circle? >> actually, bret it wouldn't have. >> eminent domain, fancy term for politicians seizing private property to enrich the fat cats who bankroll them. like trump. >> i think eminent domain is wonderful. >> it made him rich. >> i'm ted cruz and i approved this message. >> the table favorite. >> i think it's a good issue. >> well -- >> if you're neck and neck and you want to make sure -- hoping that the diehard conservatives come out for you, the issue of eminent domain. if you're a died in the wool conservative, that's a big issue. it's not a question of whether the fifth amendment should apply
2:31 pm
for government use, if it's used for private use and it enriches one individual, like the limo parking lot. that's a problem for ted cruz. but if you're looking at thin margins, it could make a difference. >> you have to use eminent domain if you want a keystone pipeline. >> it's the difference, it's how you apply it. >> i think by the time you explain that, which was beautiful, dana. >> thank you. >> i could be a lawyer. >> people will, they'll miss the point. i think most people that really feel like get it done whoever you can, make the deal happen. put money back in our economy, we're about that life, they're still, they're not going to be so bothered by the nuance that you're speaking very accurately about. >> i think eminent domain is small ball and it's a little desperate. and i think the ad reminds everybody that trump is a successful entrepreneur and developer. >> taking away people's property so he can enrich himself. >> if you're a developer, you're going to be pro eminent domain, because you want to make money. if cruz was a developer, he'd be
2:32 pm
doing the same thing. >> small ball is that in watter s's world. jeb bush is rolling out a secret weapon, his mother barbara. here she is in a new ad supporting her son. >> jeb has been a very good father. wonderful son. a hard worker, his hardest dig, when push comes to shove people are going to realize that jeb has real solutions rather than talking about how popular they are or how great they are he's doing it because he see as huge need and it's not being filled by anybody. of all the people running, he seems to be the one who can solve the problem. i think he'll be a great president. >> i just can't get enough of her. i think she's just lovely and charming and authentic and she said you know, in such a nice way, the delivery she said he seems to be the one that can get the job done. very effective. >> well julie raczinski who had
2:33 pm
the chance to be here. said it doesn't seem to be the most ringing endorsement. the thing about bushes, is that when it comes to barbara bush, no bragging allowed from her children. she doesn't do it, either. sees all about grace and manners and goodness. i had chance to see them in a couple of weeks because i'm going to be at the barbara bush celebration of reading. >> she does a nice job for him. she's not like a hard sell. she's thoughtful about it, which is good. >> she looks good. this is desperate, when you've got to trot out your mother to be your biggest advocate. >> you mean like trotting out your husband. >> i think for poor jeb, i say poor jeb a lot on the network. it's low-hanging fruit. >> it begs the question, how about the one that might actually make a difference? >> yeah, w. >> he's coming out. >> well he better hurry up. small ball very quickly. if you get your lead-off man on base, you bunt him to second.
2:34 pm
versus swinging for the fences. >> for those of you who didn't know. you know what struck me about the ad. jebs arms were so skinny. did you notice that? do some curls, man. like -- >> did you see that? >> the guy did not look good out there. >> are you serious? >> looks unhealthy. he needs to put a little muscle on. >> you've got, your face is like as red as a tomato and you are -- >> oh ho! >> i'm darker than ebony. >> but not darker than me. >> i was in the everglades what am i going to do. >> you talk about bringing out george w. isn't that a reminder that jeb is the establishment. >> but he can't be doing any worse. look there are a lot of people who love george w. >> love. >> he's actually polling better
2:35 pm
than hillary and obama. >> that must kill them. >> why not. i would bring out anybody that i could that i thought would be helpful if i want to win. i mean come on. let's not be shy about it. it's go time. >> that relationship is about love, not politics. >> but i don't think she would come out and do an ad like that if she -- >> i'm talking about the brother. >> i'm saying with barbara, though. she has credibility. directly ahead, the water crisis in flint, michigan. democrats have been playing the race card. but it turns out the obama administration may have just admitted they were partly to blame. details, next.

2:38 pm
along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. it absolutely reduced my urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood
2:39 pm
and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some had seizures while taking chantix. if you have any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse or of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you have these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have heart or blood vessel problems, or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. most common side effect is nausea. i can't believe i did it. i quit smoking. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. a new development on the polluted water disaster in flint, michigan. for years the left has told americans that they are the ones who will keep the water clean. they are the ones who cared about safe drinking water. remember?
2:40 pm
>> to reliable supplies of clean water is a matter of human security. it's also a matter of national security. >> making sure that we've got clean air, clean water, a great future for our kids. >> they do what they believe. these republicans, they do what they believe. and they do not believe in government that has any role in clean air, clean water. >> we had no environmental protection agency in 1970 in america. we had no one that was safeguarding our public drinking water. >> and hillary clinton just last weekend played the race card. saying the republican governor didn't care. >> we've had a city in the united states of america, where the population, which had is poor in many ways, and majority african-american, has been drinking and bathing in lead-contaminated water. and the governor of that state acted as though he didn't really
2:41 pm
care. >> well guess what? it was also the obama administration who dropped the ball. president obama's epa, how do we know this? the epa administrator overseeing the water crisis in flint has just resigned. so it's clear, dana, the republicans want polluted water, we want the water to be dirty so everybody drink it is and gets sick. isn't that what everybody said? >> it makes for a great sound byte in front of a crowd at a democratic debate. but when you put the details of the story out, it's -- criminal to talk about it. in a political way. you have a failure at every level of government. the city, the state and now the epa. the federal government basically the question is -- did the epa at that regional level. the woman who resigned, had that region of the country under her care. did they bury the info? and did they not step in when they knew that they should have? in addition, the governor who has already fired somebody, in january early january, asked the
2:42 pm
white house for president obama to declare the area a disaster, because they needed additional funds in order to help remedy the situation. president obama didn't sign that for two weeks. this week, wednesday, president obama went to detroit, to the auto show and could have gone to flint, michigan. they usually make the right decisions on those things. i think the white house missed an opportunity there. >> it seems like the environmental protection agency, not protecting the environment. they're actually polluting the environment. they did this in colorado. they turned a river there bright orange. i think we have that picture. oops, that was an accident. and then all of a sudden this democratic city, no one can drink any water and the epa sat on this and everyone is getting sick. and the president won't go there, bolling? what's that about? >> i agree with dana, this is horrible what happened to these people. for two years they've been drinking polluted water. the mayor was -- can we not do politics? it doesn't matter who was republican, who was a democrat.
2:43 pm
the bottom line is i think there's a smoking gun. there's an email going from the regional epa, to the local epa saying don't put this information out yet until we're absolutely certain. in the meantime, months, a year goes by before they even alert the governor that there's a problem with the drinking water. so it was a failure on so many levels. >> and eric -- >> across the board. just fix. >> the city is still demanding that the residents pay for that water that was poisoned. >> wasn't michael moore a rest didn't there? he could probably pay for some poland spring. don't you think he should pony up. >> everybody about this story turns my stomach. my issue with what hillary said is this -- i'm not going to take the governor off the hook. but to bait in that way to a base that is slipping through her fingers, the black electorate. that's fine, police clinton. but tell us as a community with a you have done specifically.
2:44 pm
>> she sent -- applause. now what i'm saying? my issue is not that you say you care. but what have you actually done when you've been given the opportunity. which many times she has. >> people are now resigning or getting fired. a big deal in the obama administration, kg. usually they get to keep their jobs and pensions or promotions. >> switch over to a different agency to screw that up. this is a very important issue. i don't want to even see it as democrat, republican, the people who are pandering and making those comments that are inflammatory. shame on you. you know who you are, hrc. you know here's the deal. clean water, this is america, come on. basic government responsibility. can't even get the water right. >> and the timeline, why did it take two years? this literally came to surface in april of 2014. >> because it's flint, michigan, not the upper income level. where frank tli there's more tax revenue coming in. they fix those water supplies really fast if something
2:45 pm
happens. >> it's turning into mexico, you can't drink the water and the government is corrupt. coming up on the fief. dana perino's picks for this weekend's game and some dana perino's stand-up on this weekend's winter weather. you don't want to miss this.
