tv   The Kelly File  FOX News  May 16, 2016 6:00pm-7:01pm PDT

6:00 pm
tomorrow i'm giving them the long airport line assignment. that should be interesting. tlangs f thanks for watching us tonight. megyn kelly is next. breaking tonight, new voices are joining the fight after the new york city times digs deep for what donald trump calls a hit piece about the businessman and women. good evening and welcome to the kelly file. i'm meeg megyn kelly. this started this weekend. "the new york times" publishing an article about trump and his treatment of women. they say they entinterviewed dos of ladies. it showed a man that participated in unsettling conduct towards women, but
6:01 pm
almost immediately one of the woman featured kocame to his defense suggesting the times mislead her and took her out of contact. >> i don't know how many other girls feel like they're misquoted, but i know i was and i don't want that out there. he was a very good guy, donald, and i think he's doing a good job in this race and i think some people have a problem with that. >> still not everyone shared her opinion. another woman served as head of construction says trump changed as he became more and more famous. >> in 1980 people were a lot more chauf nisic an they are now. it's interesting, the times got better and he got worse. >> in moments that woman will be here live along with another high-powered woman that worked for donald trump. she has a different take on this. plus ana is here to talk
6:02 pm
about whether the clinton camp can claim the moral high ground on this issue. but first our chief political correspondent reporting tonight. >> this was six weeks in the making and the top reporters were engaged in it and obviously it was meant to be a deep dive into donald trump's personal relations with women over the course of the last 30 or so years. when one came forward on fox and friends this morning to complain that she in fact had been misquoted in her view and had specifically said she did not want to be part of what trump's dubed hit piece, felt as though it became part of some sort of deliberate smear. listen. >> they put a negative connotation and spun it to where it appeared negative. i did not have a negative experience with donald trump. it was kind, thoughtful, generous. he was a gentleman. >> it didn't take long for donald trump himself to call cnn and other media outlets to say
6:03 pm
did you see what happened on fox news. he hit twitter and said that what she said proved that "the new york times" article was a planned hit piece and a fraud. so there's one person that for at least a time gives donald trump a bit of a respite for what has been a problem with women. his unfavorables are high there and there are others in the piece that have not come forward to say they were misquoted and there were some who were listed there that had favorable views of trump as well. an tupt for donald trump to pounce on t"the new york times" but it doesn't make the problem go away. my next guests worked for donald trump. she was the former international vice president and barbara is a former trump organization vp and executive vp. great to see you both. barbara let me start with you because you are featured quite a bit in this new york times piece and you were head of
6:04 pm
construction of donald trump's company the one where his father said you're going to hire a woman for that position and he did it at a time when not a lot of women were getting a break. in your time with him, did he seem sexist to you? >> you have to understand you got to put it in the context of the times. this is 1980 so everybody was sexist and we were in the construction industry so that was sexist. but as far as donald was concerned no he wanted the best person and he thought i was the best person and he picked me. >> the times talks about a moment you had with donald trump where you stafrrted to think he was getting more sexist as the years went on. >> yes. >> is that true? >> absolutely. i mean, i worked for him for a long time, but from '80 to '84 we were very close and we talked all the time and he never came across as anything but very respectful with women. when i returned back to the
6:05 pm
trump organization in '87 he was a little bit different the way he talked about women in his office. he would refer to women and the women in the office he would look at them a little bit like a leering kind of thing. i saw definit definite change. he did playboy magazine, it seemed unreasonable and unheard of for him at the time. he started saying more things that surprised me up to this day. >> i'm going to get to the specifics of that, but i want to bring in sunada you have nothing but glowing things to say about mr. trump. you experienced language that may have been diminishing, but you say he was an equal opportunity offender. >> he's a businessman and i know that he doesn't have the greatest history in terms of what he says about many women, but in a professional setting and i was running four different
6:06 pm
projects in terms of marketing between 2003 and 2007 he was extraordinarily professional. he was fair. >> did you two know each other, you and barbara? >> i did not unfortunately i didn't have the pleasure of meeting barbara because i was there in 2003. >> did you ever experience what you perceived as sexism and on the other hand did you experience donald trump giving you and or other women unusual or extraordinary opportunities? >> absolutely not. it was equal opportunity regardless whether you're a man or women, whether of where you came from, what mattered to mr. trump were results. and if you produced results, in my case it was actually setting record prices for different projects and getting incredible price per square foot and record sell out it didn't matter who you were as long as you produced
6:07 pm
results. >> barbara, what was the language you say he used that you thought was problematic. >> when did i say used language that was problematic. >> i'm sorry? >> i didn't say used language. he was referencing women in a different way that was unusual. i gave a for instance in the article of the times where he made a comment about women and their bodies when we were talking with an architect in 1991. >> did he say something to you about weight gain. >> at one point yeah i had put on some weight. this was quite a bit later and he said you like your candy or something like that. >> now, another woman quoted said he did make comments from time to time on women's bodies, but that she thought he meant it as to be helpful she says, that he thought -- quote, she experienced these observations when she gained weight, but she saw if as friendly encouragement. he thought i looked much better
6:08 pm
tlin. what's your takeaway because there's a lot of women saying i don't need any man telling me i like my candy when you put on a few extra pounds so what's your take away. >> as it happens i worked for her and she was much tougher than mr. trump when it came to performance or when it came to appearance. in real estate development and real estate marketing world just like the media world you have to look very presentable. you have to look your best. we worked with high net worth clients and they expected you to be look and be very very presentable and they expected you to look a certain way because you were more relatable. >> are you going to vote for donald trump? >> well, unfortunately i'm not going to discuss that because i have many clients who may not want to know what my political leanings are. >> fair enough. what about you barbara.
6:09 pm
>> i think hillary is better for women with the different issues. >> fascinating. thank you both so much for being here. we appreciate your candor and time. >> thank you. this article is getting a lot of media attention and the clinton campaign is staying silent on the report. judge, i think the trump campaign suggests this is a plant by the clinton campaign in "the new york times." >> it was a pretty watered down plant if it was. if you read the entire article i don't think they laid a glove on donald trump. >> they talk about how it's complicated. in defense of the times they don't say he's a chauf nis, they say he's complicated. do you not think that's fair when it comes to donald trump and women. >> yes, i think it is complicated and i think he's complicated, but if the worst they have on his behavior about women is the stuff in that article, he asked a lady if she
6:10 pm
wanted to wear ai bathing suit and she changed in private, big deal. >> how about saying to a woman who has gained weight you like your candy. >> i don't think that's disqualifying. >> we're talking about problematic. >> the new york times has the right to go there as the new york post has the right to go where is the clinton foundation money going to. these are legitimate issues. >> on the subject of the clintons and women, i was looking into it in the past and what's there? we know what bill allegedly did. what did hillary allegedly do because trump has been sounding that bell. >> hillary allegedly was an enabler. hillary decided to defend her husband. many people would say what do you examine ebt a wife to do? that's a legitimate inquiry. >> you don't have to tear down a woman who is saying she had an affair with your husband. you can tear down your husband, you can stay silent. >> the public has the right to know what makes hillary tick.
6:11 pm
why did she defend bill? why did she stay with bill during this time period? why did she attack the woman who present competent credible evidence against him because the public has the right to know how hillary reacts under stress. these are all legitimate areas of inquiry. donald trump's treatment of women, hillary clinton's treatment of women. all this stuff is something that the press is free to focus on and they should focus on it because the press should be forceful and fearless. these two people want to be president. as you said this morning very nicely they want george washington's job. we have the right to know everything about them. >> if you're a sexist, if you abuse women, if you are disrespectful to them we need to look into it. looking at hillary's history, there were three women who alleged that they had actually had a nonconscienceal encounter with bill clinton. not one of those settled out of
6:12 pm
court. the other two didn't go anywhere. cath lean and then there was the jennifer flowers affair which was a 12 year on and off relationship between her and bill clinton. according to karl bernstein his by ogfy called her trailer trash and said if you drag a $100 bill through a trailer park you don't know what you'll find. jennifer flowers says she believes mrs. clinton ran a war room to smear and harm people like her. >> if there is evidence of that, then the press is entitled to pursue it and ask mrs. clinton about it because it is behavior she has an obligation to defend. >> you don't think she's going to get away with no i'm not talking about it. >> i don't think she can. i don't think so. she has so many problems and this is adding to them. >> good to see you. >> knock them dead tomorrow night. >> thank you very much.
6:13 pm
we have new reports developing tonight about what happened when iran captured a group of u.s. salors and new claims that the administration may be sitting on the explosive details. you have to see this story. plus you see the fierce fallout from this report on donald trump. see what happens when i asked him about the temperament issue and hear from the man that's been campaigning tirelessly for his dad, donald trump junior next. most kids have been bullied at some point in their lives. were you ever bullied.
6:14 pm

6:17 pm
from the world headquarters of fox news it's the kelly files. donald trump dominated the news today. in less than 24 hours from right now he will answer some questions about temperament in my first interview with him since the opening gop debate nine plus months ago. on a special fox broadcast
6:18 pm
network, i asked mr. trump about the impact of his message considering his enormous media reach. watch. you are so powerful. you are so powerful now. >> i don't view myself as that. i view myself as a person that like everybody else is fighting for survival. that's all i view myself as. i really view myself now as somewhat of a messenger. this is a massive thing that's going on. these are millions and millions of people that have been disenfranchised from this country. >> it's true. they're listening to you and they're taking their could ykoo you so that's the question whether you will take that responsibility seriously and change your tone to try to be more unifying and less divisive. >> joining me now is donald trump junior. he's been campaigning for his dad.
6:19 pm
thanks for being here. >> good to be here. >> let's pick up on that point. what i was talking to about there was the enormous power of the mega phone and he's not a reality tv show host now. he could be the president next january. do you think with that rise comes a greater responsibility to be more careful in your language? >> i think the rise is largely in part because of the tone, because he's finally saying the things that everyone wants to say, that all these working people in this country, the hard working blue collar people in this country who have been left in the dust and don't get special treatment for doing nothing, he's giving them a voice again. i think that's so important and that's why the rise is. >> there are other issues. it's not just make america great again, it's look at carly fiorina's face and the comment about mexico sending its rapi s rapists, that's the stuff i was talking about. >> when he says there's rapists coming across the boarder, that's a fact. that's not everyone, but the
6:20 pm
media says this is what he says. >> how about fiorina? >> he's a tough guy. when he talks he's going to treat everyone the same way. it's not about women, men. he did the same thing to marco and jeb. >> so no change. >> i think he'll change. i've seen him be charismatic. you can't do what he's done with people all over the world, he's done this for 40 years. he can be as charismatic as anyone, but there comes a time when you have to say enough is enough. you have to put down the hammer. that's what people like to see. >> he talks about himself as a counter puncher. i will submit to you when a journalist asks you tough questions, we are paid to hold the presidential candidates to account. >> there's a lot of press. it's a disenagainous process. i see him give a speech for an
6:21 pm
hour and they'll take a sentence from minute number one, a sentence from minute number 15 and number 37 and they'll combine it to one thought. he said that, but in the context. he can't combine three sentences from four parts of a speech and say that's the point of the speech. >> do you feel like they're turning on him. do you feel like media outlets are starting to turn. >> when you look at "the new york times," like we don't have more important things to do, it's insane that i'm seeing this. i understand that they are hillary clinton's number one surrogate and they're out there doing this stuff every day and that's their job, but it's ridiculous. >> is it irritating for you? you're his son. >> i know the guy. i know the father. i know the grandfather that's playing golf with my 2-year-old daughter. i see that guy so i see the softer side. i see the guy that has given
6:22 pm
women throughout his career opportunities. if they don't capitalize on that and come back and say it was terrible -- >> what about him saying you like your candy. you know there are women saying i don't want anyone telling me i like my candy. >> he says that to me too. he's a tough guy. he's not going to sit there and cater to everyone's thoughts. i think americans like that. i think they like a guy that can be the leader of this country who is not going to bow to the enemies we have all over the world and the people that treat us like garbage, he's not go bow to them and not pretend there's not an issue and stick your head in the sand and don't worry and wait eight years and get nothing done. he's going to take action and do something. we need that for a change.
6:23 pm
>> you go the the same gestures has he does. >> i can't help it. he's a passionate guy and he loves this country. he loves what this country has been able to do for him and he wants to make sure that's available for everyone else because no one else is getting that chance anymore. >> donald trump junior, great to see you. >> thank you. here to weigh on this ben. donald trump junior makes a nice case for his dad. do you think the republicans who might be ret sent to get on the trump train are going to buy it. >> i think it has to do with what we see from donald trump over these coming weeks and months. he's going to be something that plays out over the course of this election. i think this issue of temperament is going to be a bigger deal than the accusations. >> that's what the entire interview tomorrow night is about, temperament. >> that's i think very important because you're anticipating with that as the topic that this is going to be the way that hillary
6:24 pm
clinton and the clinton machine approaches donald trump. it's not so much about the women where they have their own vulnerabilities with bill, this is someone who is not prepared to be commander in chief and that's because of things he says and things we can't trust when it comes to the words coming out of his mouth and basically the view that the clintons have that he's not someone who should be in this office. for republicans who are questioning right now whether they can unify behind donald trump, the more he's out there saying things that make them nervous, the more they're going to draw back. the more he says things that sound serious and tough the more they're going to be willing to come along and unite around him. >> you tell me, you ask the trump family or trump himself whether we should expect to see some big change the answer is pretty much no and it's worked so far for him and as you heard don junior say this is what the american people want. do you think these republicans who are like he's going to change, don't worry, are they
6:25 pm
kidding themselves? >> i think they are kidding themselves. i think we know who donald trump is and i think we've seen it play out over the course of this election. i don't think he's going to change, but i think there's some different aspects that he could focus his fire basically to help his standing with the republicans who are more leery to come behind him. the less he's engaging in attacks the more they're going to be willing to line up behind him. this is a very critical moment for donald trump because he can achieve that by focusing his fire on hillary clinton, on democrats, and bringing alongside of him republicans who he can look to for counsel on these issues. the meeting with paul ryan and the meeting with senators. >> lindsay graham. >> the olive branch is extended. i think it's a situation where we have to see whether over time
6:26 pm
that's something where his tone, his focus is more on the democrats and more on attacking america's enemies and less on attacking his fellow republicans. >> good to see you. >> good to be with you. >> my first interview with donald trump since the debate will air tomorrow. it's part of my new special. it's called megan kelly presents. in addition to donald trump we have interviews with michael douglas. the tabloids say he has a couple of months to leave. robert shar peer owe who makes unbelievable admissions to me about this case which i've never heard before. if you are interested in o.j. you should see the interview. la vern cox from the orange is in the in new black and i think
6:27 pm

6:29 pm
or solutions as it may not work as intended and you may lose blood sugar control, which could be serious. ask your doctor about toujeo®. but it's actually a triumph of predictive analytics. because of optum. through population health data, they provide insights so doctors and hospitals can identify high-risk patients. like me... asthma... potential hospital visit. so now thanks to optum, this asthma thing's under control. gravity not so much. this is healthier, powered by optum. from health plans to providers to employers. we connect all parts of health care. healthier is here.

6:32 pm
i have no idea what his policy would be in terms of dealing with isis. i worry about his admiration of putin. it's one of the things that makes it challenging for me is that he seems to think that he has all the answers and that he doesn't need any advice from staff or anybody else. >> would you severe hrved him i asked. >> i learned never to say never, but that would be inconceivable to me. >> joining me is mike huckabee and dan senore. robert gates not necessarily trump fan from the sound of it. i realize some voters don't care what bob gates thinks but most people say he's a straight shooter. >> i think he's a straight shooter, but i don't know how well he knows donald trump. i think people who know donald
6:33 pm
trump know he surrounds himself with people who knows what he doesn't know. >> what about that question you can't have a trade war with china and then turn around and ask them to help you with north korea. >> there's a lot of things that you saw in politics that you saw publicly that you do because it's a posturing. it's part of the process. then you also are talking to people in intimate conversations and bringing them in. it's part of a legislative process. >> it's a bunch of ba lon knee that you're running but you get smart people around you when you're in. >> no. it's about making sure there's a clear indication publicly that the united states of america is not going to back down no matter whether it's china or north korea. i don't think you're going do see russia flying fighters 30 feet over a navy destroyer if donald trump is president. >> go ahead. >> for the last eight years many

republicans critiqued president obama for not being tough enough on our add ver series and. donald trump, you may know what he says behind the scenes, but i'm just reacting to what he says in public. donald trump refls in the flattery from putin. he says he wants to withdraw from nato. he has the same policies with regard to assad. we critique hillary clinton. donald trump would be waerk on putin than hillary clinton. >> i disagree. i don't think he would be weak auto all. he has respect for putin because putin is the kind of guy when he sees a weak president like obama he shoves it up his nostrils. >> you don't think on year one

of a trump presidency, you don't think that putin would say i have a friend in the white house who has my back so i'm going to invade these countries. this president trump has collapsed nato which has been a pill yar of the american transatlantic line. china -- >> you're talking about obama. that is not who donald trump is. >> trump has praised the way the chinese government clamped down on the massacre. any american would be horrified by what china did. trump praised it. he said japan should get a nuclear welcome. he's for a communist china. >> jeff sessions who is one of

the most competent capable d-- >> i like jeff sessions. how do you defend what you said. >> would you rather have hillary clinton? i would not. i know both of these people and we can't have another eight years of obama policy. >> is the best defense of trump is he's terrible but he's only slightly less terrible than hillary clinton. >> i think he's going to put america first. it's been a long time since we had a president that put america above all of the interests. >> can you respond to what dan is saying? >> in what way because yes i just did respond. >> withdrawing from nato. putin wants nato to collapse. >> he wants america to quit paying for all the expenses and us basically being played the church. >> yif america stops funding nao
6:37 pm
nato disappears. >> i know what the state of the american economy is. i know americans want america to act like a country that is on top rather than getting whipped. >> when donald trump says the israelis i'm going to cut a deal and it will be a deal of a lifetime so -- >> they're not equal. >> you've spent a lot of time in israel. does that not worry you he has such a complete lack of knowledge about the region let alone a real connection to the state of israelial as it's dealing with threats. >> i didn't agree with him on that. i would rather have him because i think he's willing to learn about the big difference i don't think hillary has the capacity to change her mind. >> i've been involved with republican conservatives for decades. i'm sad to say the nominee is he'll be slightly less worse

6:44 pm
differently. republican virginia congressman says during a classified military briefing he's been told the obama administration is keeping details of the capture under wraps saying quoting here i think when the details finally come out most americans are going to be kind of taken aback by the entire incident both how iran handled it and how we handled it. i think it's going to be a huge cause of concern for most americans, but no response from the white house. all of this comes while "the new york times" is reporting when the sailors were captured back in january president obama's deputy national security advisor was annoyed he couldn't suppress the story for a few more hours so it wouldn't conflict with the president's final state of the union speech. thank you. joining us with reaction is a former speech writer for george
