tv The Kelly File FOX News November 10, 2016 6:00pm-7:01pm PST
thanks for watching tonight. i'm bill o'reilly. please remember that the spin stops here. we are definitely looking out for you. breaking tonight, just two days after his victory president elect donald trump heads to washington to meet with the current president and congressional leaders. but as lawmakers work for a peaceful transition, streets across mark are anything but serene. protesters insisting that mr. trump is not their president and in some cases calling for violence. welcome to "the kelly file." i'm megyn kelly. we're keeping our eyes on cities tonight amid calls for more protests. just 24 hours ago on this program we showed you massive demonstrations that were breaking out in major cities across america.
people seen burning flags. folks in new york even marching to the foot of president elect's home at trump tower, at time the protests leading to arrests. one woman in clarch taking it further. >> if we don't fight who is going to fight for it. people had to die for freedom of where we're at right now. we have to fight back. there will be casualties on both sides. there will be because people have to die to make a change in this world. >> after ward president obama's spokesperson said people have every right to protest but cautioned that they should not resort to violence. today donald trump's campaign manager encouraged the president and hillary clinton to akrez the situation. we'll speak with kellyanne conway about that in a moment. we begin with rob schmitt who is in california covering the situation. what are you seeing? >> reporter: today we saw president elect trump having a
cordial meeting with president obama and a handshake, getting olive branch of some of extented to him from elizabeth warren and bernie sanders. but tonight, just about 200 people here right outside of trump tower. the nypd has done a much more dramatic job of cordering off this area. and i think the nypd was ready for it. this was the same kind of thing. they marched up from union square, the two-mile march into midtown. a much smaller group and this is a much more on message group, a much more mature group. people that want to talk about things and have a discussion about this and not just scream obscenities and do some of the things that we did see last night on your show. we want to bring in a couple of people that we want to talk to,
people who are here protesting and willing to talk to us about what brought them out here. this is emily. she lives in queens, new york. i want to ask you, we can understand with as a woman what might worry you about this president. what brought you out heretonigh night? >> i want to change the message. i want to speak to the other side. i hate saying that because i think this might be furthering the divide which worries me. i don't want to alienate the other people. he scared me because of the way he campaigned. i'm mostly concerned about the environment. i think everybody needs to live in the world and i don't want him to undo all of the progress. i'm hopeful he will prove me wrong. i want to let everybody know that voted for him, i don't think think all of us think they're racists and bigots and home foamic. this might be sending the
message that they're all that way. >> was there one thing that bothered you the most? >> that climate change is not real. >> so you are a whole different perspective. >> i don't think he's as bad as we think he is but i'm worried. >> thank you very much. there you have it, that's one opinion of several out here that you see. that's the first time i've heard environment as a reason, though. back to you, megyn. >> donald trump's victory did make history and on that night someone by his side made history as well. kellyanne conway, the first woman to run a successful presidential campaign. she joins me now live. congratulations. >> thank you, megyn. >> on his victory and on yours. >> i appreciate that. he's a unique compelling messenger who took his message directly to the people. we were totally imperve vous to the naysayers, the critics, the
polls and the pundits. i think this is the people's election and i feel like my republican party was veering dangerously close to becoming the party of the elites for many years. >> there's no question that donald trump earned this victory but you had helped. he had been through two campaign managers who were not able to get them in the space that would be successful and then you came in. >> we have a great team. >> i know. you're sweet. she's giving all of the credit to other people because that's how she is. let's talk about what your reaction was the other night. you go to the exit poll meetings at 5:00, lookingood for hillary, not for donald, looks like it's going to be a hillary win. when was the moment you knew, oh my god, like he actually is winning. he's winning this? >> so our goal was always to protect the core four as i call
it, florida, north carolina, ohio and iowa. we knew iowa and ohio looked good and we knew we were behind in the early vote in florida and north carolina but we weren't as far behind as governor romney was in 2012. we were ready for that. and in concert with the rnc we built a ground game, a data operation that tried to mitigate the loss of early voting that republicans seem to experience. we needed a big day of vote in the states. and when we knew that catchup we knew we were going to be close but probably prevailing in both states. the other thing is in later weeks' saw about six different paths to 270 but most of the paths ran to the upper midwest. when i saw michigan, pennsylvania competitive and i saw hillary clinton not getting over 50% -- the thing about her in all of the swing states -- >> a low ceiling. when did you realize that michigan was in play, that
pennsylvania was really in play? was it comey? >> our internal polls. >> when? about what point? >> probably three weeks before the election. these were states that were always attracted to the donald trump message of getting your jobs back from mexico and china, creating 25 million new jobs, energy, investments and patriotism. he was getting crowds wherever he went and people were saying who cares, crowd size it doesn't matter. it does matter. >> it didn't matter for romney. if you look at the last election, mitt romney's crowd sizes were huge, not consistently in the way that trump's were. and he didn't win. you go by history but in the end not only did he have the huge crowds but they were motivated. >> they were. >> let me ask you about on a go forward basis. everybody is concerned about the cabinet. you've been offered a job. want to give a specifics on it?
>> it's not a specific job. i'm pushing back on a reluctant media report that i didn't want to go in. >> they did that wrout asking you if that wu true. >> i said false. that's a conversation that i'll have with mr. trump when it's appropriate and i've told him i'm willing to serve. >> the names to come to mind, rudy giuliana, chris christie, newt gingrich, steve bannon, all of those in the running as far as you know? >> they're capable and qualified to take the positions. i don't like to speculate on personnel. >> we'll get to that soon enough. >> this is donald trump's presidency and it's his cabinet and it's his senior team. the major quality will be loyalty. >> people he feels comfortable with. >> and capable to do the job.
everybody you just named certainly is. >> let's talk about what we saw with emily, the protester. she's fearful. for her the issue is climate change. we're heard other issues with people out there, women, hispanics, people who are afraid they might get deported, people who found themselves on the other side of donald trump's pledged policies or his, you know, behavior at some points during the campaign. does he do anything to reach out to them other than, you know, just try to act presidential. do you think he's going to do something where he has a specific message for them? >> he's off to a great start in that direction. the minute he won the election and went out to do his victory speech, a speech he wrote, he went out there and said i'm going to be the president of all americans, including those who do not support me. it's very important to him personally. secondly less than 36 hours of being elected president of the united states, donald trump and melania trump flew down to
washington to meet with president obama and first lady obama. >> who was brutal to trump just as he was to them. >> but they all love america and democracy and all four of them share in a peaceful transition. this afternoon president bill clinton called president elect donald trump and they had a warm conversation. >> i would have loved to have heard that. >> president clinton congratulated mr. trump on his victory and wished him well. that's my message to the protesters too, which is take your cues from these five or six people today. the sitting president, the former president. >> keep an open mind. >> and certainly the trumps, they had a wonderful day there. >> but during the campaign you never liked the personal attacks, ivanka made clear she didn't like the personal attacks. nobody is a perfect person and everybody has flaws.
do you think that president elect trump and president trump will be able to refrain from that from anybody who attacks him and sort of going to the darkest place on twitter or otherwise? >> he has his 100-day plan out there and that's his focus. he has a republican house and senate which means he can get things done. i think folks like to hide behind divided government. it's a great foil to fear, frankly. >> i wasn't brave enough to get things done. >> i would have expect the president is of a different party, the congress is in my way. here you have complete control by the republican party and the country decided that. they also chose to put republicans in charge of 69 over 99 the state legislatures. but on this point about reaching out and talking to people -- >> just personal attacks. >> can we agree, i hope we can
agree that no one has ever been subjected to the deluge and just unbelievable avalanche of personal attacks as donald trump. i can tell you as one of his senior staffers -- >> it's only going to get worse. >> we're like the walking wounded. there's nothing like it. like the edward scissor hands of insult. if secretary clinton shouldn't have won a nasty campaign at the end, she could have made the race more kpes tif. >> trump gave as much as he got. >> he had an inspirational message in there too. >> my point is as president of the united states he can't be engaging in attacks on civilians, verbal attacks or shots like that. that doesn't lift us up. do you think he's going to stop th that? >> i know he's fully capable of being the president of all americans and that would be included in that. but the protesters who are burning his images and having the nasty signs, can you imagine
if hillary clinton had been elected, which they were all electing, and the trump protesters were saying not my president. that's all you would hear about. i think people should really take some self reflection and realize we've got a lot in common in this country. but he's going to be a tough leader. he got elected on certain issues and you can expect him to tackle that very quickly in his administration. >> we're looking forward to watching the next 70 days and sees what your team puts in place. congrats. >> thank you. well amid signs of unrest in somedy cities across the country, we saw a different scene in our nation's capitol today as president obama and president elect trump met for the very fist time. charles krauthammer is here next saying there was another face to face that was far more important. president obama has used the power of the pen in office to his favor but could mr. trump undo it all on january 1st? he has a pen and a phone too.
marc thiessen and mark hannah are here. chief architect of obamacare is here as we go one more round of the uncertain future of the president's signature law. >> don't you agree the system is going to collapse unless we get -- >> i don't agree with that. the president has given you a plan that will cover everyone. ♪ fifty years ago, humpback whales were nearly extinct. they rebounded because a decision was made to protect them. making the right decisions today for your long-term financial future can protect you and your family, and preserve your legacy. ask a financial advisor how retirement and life insurance solutions from pacific life

a second straight night of anti-trump protests unfolding in major city across the u.s. and even overseas. in washington, d.c. today however it was a different scene as president obama hosted president elect trump for his first white house visit. and this was no average encounter. charles krauthammer joins us on that in a moment but we begin with campaign karl cameron with more on trump's day in d.c. >> thanks, megyn. donald trump and president obama, after years of ak mo any were very cordial today. watch. >> most of all i want to emphasize to you, mr. president elect, that we now are going to want to do everything we can to
help you succeed because if you succeed, then the country succeeds. >> we had never met each other. i have great respect. the meeting lasted for almost an hour and a half. and i look forward to being with you many many more times. thank you. >> while the president and president elect were chatting with, the first lady and incoming first lady had a meeting in the white house residence while the vice president elect and the outgoing vice president had a meeting. then it was on to the hill for donald trump where he met with the two republican leaders of the house and senate. but there too there is an awful lot of ill will and none of i it was visible to. >> donald trump had one of the most impressive victories we've ever seen and we're going to turn that into progress for the american people. >> we're going to fix health care and make it for affordable and better. that's what we want to do. >> after meeting with paul ryan,
trump went and visited with the senate majority leader mitch mcconnell. >> thank you. well the two men were cordial at the white house but they did not pose for a couples' photo along with their wives as the obamas did with the bushes in 2008. jang me now, charles krauthammer. great to see you. let's start with what happened today in d.c. to their credit, both men were cordial, shook hands. there is a lot of bad blood between them and they've both taken brutal shots at one another, such is the nature of politics. given that, how do you think it went? >> it went according to textbook. they have to be cordial, they have to make a show of amity and comedy which they did. and the most important element of that day was the constant repetition of the page mr. president elect. it is hard to get used to saying
or hearing that with any new president. i remember with clinton it was hard to get used to it, especially an outsider who's never been called governor or senator. but we heard it so much today. and when it came out of the mouth of the current president speaking with respect, all of the sudden it becomes real and that was the most important element of today. this idea of normalizing what was shocking one and a half days ago -- i remember in the broadcast on election night around wallace said, oh my god, we really could be seeing a president trump. the phrase sounded very strange. it's becoming rather normal now. >> that's all part of it because the american people need to get behind president trump and accept him as our president and wish him well. we want our president to be successful and be safe and be confident in the job. and president obama plays an important role in setting the tone for that.
but of course at another level, trump has got to figure out what's going to go on with these guys who are still going to be there when he ascends. obama is going to go off and enjoy himself, doing something where he's going to make money or playing more golf or whatever. paul ryan is going to be there, mitch mcconnell is going to be there. and the question is will president elect really work with paul ryan or do you think he wants to get rid of him? >> well he may want to get rid of him but i think he understands absolutely that the last thing he needs in a transition where he has no legislative experience and he's got a guy in the house who's ready to work with him on what they share in their agenda, which is really quite a lot, it would be nuts to try to undermine him and create a civil war in the party right now. he has the movement, he has the party. he's the leader. he will pick and choose among the items that the ryan and house republicans have already prepared. they're ready to go with a very
long agenda. trump will decide what is going to be acted on at the beginning. and on that there should be not much disagreement. >> right. donald trump may not have been his favorite candidate. but the odds are he's sitting there on capitol hill thinking, this is great, i have a republican president, we maintained control of the upper chamber, i'm speaker of the house, let's go for it. we can do all of the things we wanted to do and piece by piece start dismantling obama's legacy. >> ryan is as giddy as a kid in a candy store. he's got a host of issues, some of which he's gotten through the house that died in harry reid's senate or died on the veto desk of obama that he's got a chance to enact and he's ready to go. >> number one is repealing and replacing obamacare.
>> speak to obama's legacy. >> obama's legacy is toast. it's gone. that explains why he's so desperately campaigned to roughly against donald trump. he knew that so much of his accomplishments had been built on ramming stuff through the house and the senate with very little consensus, in fact none on obamacare coming from the republicans, on executive orders that are reversible with the stroke of a pen, on regulation that is easily reversible, that it collapses if and when his successor turns out to be a republican. and that's what happened. and i think he's going to end up as a pa ren that sis in american history in the sense that he thought when we came into office, he thought he was the ronald reagan of the left, meaning reagan came in, he changed the ideological trajectory of the country,
turned it into a conservative country where that was the underlying consensus. obama thought he was going to change all of that and begin a liberal path. it did not turn out that way. the country rejected his policies. remember what obama said when he was campaigning, i'm not on the ballot but my legacy is on the ballot. it was on the ballot and the country has rejected it. the idea that he would be the beginner of a new liberal asensecy is now dead and i think obama understands that very well. >> he really -- i don't think he believed that donald trump could ever become the president ever. he said that many times. he's not going to become president. and now this appearance he made on jimmy kimmel where you read mean tweets. he's show it to the audience. this is making the rouds now. the trump supporters feel vindicat
vindicated. here it is. >> president obama will go down as perhaps the worst president of in the history of the united states, at real donald trump. at real donald trump, at least i will go down as a president. >> that's why there weren't that many smiles in the oval office today. i think that's why yaw also did not see a portrait of the two couples. but again that doesn't matter how you feel. they went through the motions and that's what we needed. and this is all in the name of transition of power and legitimacy. >> that's right. >> something we have done very well except for a little problem with the civil war. but otherwise, we did it very well. >> there's something beautiful about it, though. there is. >> it is. >> just seeing people so i'd logically opposed and fought such a brutal fight just sit down together, shaking hands saying as a nation we'll be just
fine. still ahead, barack obama was accused of running an imperial presidency by some, executive orders bypassing the congress. saying election xs have consequences. they do indeed. what are the consequences of tuesday nights's election for mr. obama's executive orders. marc thiessen and mark hannah are here on that. plus now that the gop controls the white house and congress, obamacare will almost certainly be repealed and replaced. what does dr. ezekiel emanuel the law's chief architect have to say about that. he's here live. don't go away. >> we can replace obamacare and save health care for every family. with passion... but i keep it growing by making every dollar count. that's why i have the spark cash card from capital one. with it, i earn unlimited 2% cash back on all of my purchasing. and that unlimited 2% cash back from spark means
thousands of dollars each year going back into my business... which adds fuel to my bottom line. what's in your wallet? see me. see me. don't stare at me. see me. see me. see me to know that psoriasis is just something that i have. i'm not contagious. see me to know that... ...i won't stop until i find what works. discover cosentyx, a different kind of medicine for moderate to severe plaque psoriasis. proven to help the majority of people find clear or almost clear skin. 8 out of 10 people saw 75% skin clearance at 3 months. while the majority saw 90% clearance. do not use if you are allergic to cosentyx. before starting, you should be tested for tuberculosis. an increased risk of infections and lowered ability to fight them may occur... ...tell your doctor if you have an infection or symptoms... ...such as fever, sweats, chills, muscle aches or cough. or if you have received a vaccine or plan to.
yeah...r when you said that men are superior drivers? yeah, then how'd i'd get this... allstate safe driving bonus check? ... only allstate sends you a bonus check for every six months you're accident-free ... silence. it's good to be in, good hands. breaking tonight, a second straight night unrests in cities across the country as the protesters take to the streets to vent their frustrations after tuesday night's election did not go the way they wanted. president elect trump taking notice and taking to twitter. minutes ago tweeting this out in response. just had a very open and successful presidential election now professional protesters incited by the media are protesting.
very unfair with his signature exclamation points. so thaw eve returned the twitter account to president elect trump and we shall see how he choose to use it over the next four years and 70 days. also tonight during his nearly eight years in office to date, president obama's willingness to use his pen and his phone has resulted in thousands of regulations costing hundreds of millions of dollars. one of president elect's donald trump's campaign promises was to undo many of those just as soon as he took office. which of these policies could soon find themselves on the chopping block. >> he promised to use his pen to go around congress more than two years ago and president obama has done plenty to make good on that pledge ever since. president elect says on day one he'll start tossing out scores of executive orders. the supreme court unanimously
instruct down the president's decision to stake the national labor relations board saying he exceeded his constitutional bounddyr bounddyr boundarie boundaries. title 9 bans sex discrimination. the school doesn't comply as the administration sees fit, it risks losing millions in federal funding. that's been a real issue for young men who shay they've been falsely accused and face severe disciplinary action even expulsion without due process. much of the trouble stems back to a 2011 letter of guidance from the department of education which counselled some schools to lower the standard of proof they should accept before immediating out punishment. experts call those dark regulatory matter and predict the trump administration will tackle it head on. >> the obama regularcy defended
on a hillary clinton being elected. obamacare is going away. the keystone pipeline is coming together. you can put together a new year's list of these. >> the obama administration has set numerous yearly records for the amount of rules and regulations added to the federal register. >> thank you. joining me now, marc thiessen and mark hannah, a campaign aide for the obama and kerry presidential campaigns and author of the book "the best worst president." marc thiessen, the danger enacting policy with a pen and a phone, the next president has a pen and a phone and if you don't have bipartisan consent and the support of your rivals on capitol hill, they're going to undo it all just as soon as you're booted out of office. >> that's exactly right. and look, you know, i was in the
bush administration during the transition to president obama and he did the exact same thing. i think president obama when he came into office, one of the first thing he did was repeal bush's order banning federal funding for embryonic stem cell research, overturned his interrogation policy by executive order. president obama did this as well when he first came into office. but the difference is that president obama has been almost unprecedented in the executive actions he took. when he lost control of congress he said he was going to impose the agenda with his pen and his phone. he couldn't pass the dream act, he imposed it by executive order are. same thing when it came to gun control, health care, transgender bathrooms. so when you rule by executive fiat, you can't be surprised when the new executive comes in and undoes it. that's what president obama is facing right now.
>> this is about undoing barack obama's legacy because so much of what he did he did on his own. >> right. and he did through this executive order which republicans were quick to criticize him about. it will be exist interesting to see if the same republicans criticize trump for -- >> just for undoing it? how it is hypocritical for them to undo the thing they criticized nlts i want to start off congratulating -- i mean this sincerely. the people out there who supported president elect trump. i'm not going to delegitimize a man who was newly elected american president, not the mention the fact that that man came to political prominence by trying to delegitimize another american president, president obama with his further nonsense. the majority of the public voted for hillary clinton -- >> can you get to the point? >> the majority of electoral votes are going to trump and he
has a mandate to make executive orders and he's going to. i'm fearful, i just saw shannon bream's report on sexual harassment, sexual assault on college campus. that's a sirius problem. the obama amount has come down on universities who are permissive about this. one in five women report being sexually assaulted -- >> she's not saying president trump is going to undo this. >> and he's criticized -- >> the criticism is not that young women don't deserve their day in college court. the criticism is that young men deserve due process on campus. >> these weren't executive orders or regulations. they were dear colleague letters. they've been threatening to sue the universities if they don't do it. and the department of education is going to withdraw the dear colleague letters.
>> what about the department of justice investigating 26 police departments across the country. could president trump dial that back? >> when it's a regulation it's harder because you've issued rules and regulations as a process. this is why it's important for him to pick really good supreme court nominees. a lot of time the supreme court when they overturn a regulation, they don't just undo the damage of an illegal executive action, they set a precedent which will be lasting and binding on the next president. it's important to have good supreme court justices. >> -- man who's boasted of sexual assault going easy. >> but going easy on them is in the eye of the beholder. >> due process. >> right now they don't get a lawyer to go in with them to these hearings. they're deprived of the ability to see the evidence. they've sand fine we'll have a process but the process hasn't
been fair to them. democrats passed obamacare without a single republican vote. ezekiel emanuel is here on whether that decision will come back to haunt the democrats as prth elect trump plenl to repeal and replace the law. that's next. >> today the american works class is going to strike back. real change begins with immediately repealing and replacing the disaster known as obamacare.

afoot and light-hearted i take to the open road. healthy, free, the world before me, the long brown path before me leading wherever i choose. the east and the west are mine. the north and the south are mine. all seems beautiful to me. developing tonight, president-elect donald trump promising to repeal obamacare. republicans asked for a seat at the table and here's how president obama responded to his rival, jim mccain. >> my constituents
overwhelmingly object to this proposal saying want us to go back to the beginning, they want us to go back to the beginning, not do this kind of legislating. they want us to sit down and do what's best for all american, not just for some people who live in florida or happen to live in other favored states. >> let me make this point, john, because we're not campaigning. the election is over. >> i'm reminded of that every day. >> yeah. >> oh boy. joining me now in an exclusive interview, dr. e deke yell emanuel, chief architect of obamaca obamacare. great to see you again. >> nice to be here. >> let's take about what they can do. you know, because the democrats pushed this through with 51 votes citing budget reconciliation. a way to get it through -- >> we had 60 votes in the original senate proposal. >> but when they loss to scott brown in massachusetts and they had to use budget reconciliation
to get it through. what can the republicans undo? >> reconciliation deals with anything financial that affects the federal budget you can deal through reconciliation which is a 51% majority. stuff that doesn't deal with money you can't repeal -- >> can they take away the funding mechanism of the law? >> yeah. >> what would that do the law? >> if you don't have subsidies, the exchange doesn't work. you can't pay for medicaid at the states. they can wreak havoc without prepeelipr repealing it. they take the subsidies away, which they certainly can and insurance companies will bail on the exchanges. you can certainly wreck this law. doesn't take a lot to wreck the question is what do you go do for the 20 million americans who
need it, for the insurance companies who rearranged their products. republicans keep talking about replacement but they've never given a credible bill which will get every insurance. >> let's talk about the preexisting conditions. >> popular. >> but the problem is as predicted, there's too many sick people taking advantage of the plan and not enough young healthy people to supplement it. if president trump contacted you saying i've got to get rid of the bulk of the law, how can i keep the preexisting covered and not have a mandate and all of the unpopular things about the law. possible? >> no. what they're proposing is to have high risk pools, not just to have a number of people who are older or sicker, but to super concentrate them and give them subsidized insurance at the
state level. the most inefficient way of giving people insurance. 3 million people in those high risk pools that cost $25 billion to pay for them. that is not a good proposal. you have to have a mandate if you are going to say anyone with a preexisting condition has to get insurance. it's linked and you can't have both. and the american public we they don't like having both but that's the way the insurance market works. >> how does it make you feel to see the law on the chopping block. i'm just curious. >> what do you think? i'm very upset because i think we did a positive stand. no matter what's your metric, we have 20 million people got insurance, if it's cost control, we've braut brought cost down. it's been a big success. the public doesn't see it that way. >> no. up next, behind the scenes at fox news. for lower back pain sufferers,
