3:03 am
we're talking politics, we're talking about thanksgiving. come join us from 6:00 to 9:00. they're putting me to work. i'm serving coffee this morning guys. >> good morning. >> good morning, everybody. >> how are you? >> fantastic. >> we want to see you dancing, too. >> we have so much to celebrate. >> we do, indeed. i like the outfit, by the way. >> thank you very much. right after the show, got to get turkey. we're going to start buying stuff and cooking some things. >> i don't go to the store. i grab my gun and go in the woods. a lot of times i don't come back. >> that's great, miles standish. meanwhile, on this day before the big holiday, donald trump arrived for his thanksgiving get away last night at palm beach armt. there he is walking down from his 757. he is whisked away by a motorcade to mar-a-lago where he will spend the holiday with his
3:04 am
family. >> i'm not really sure if the president-elect is not there. there's a lot of movement in the trump transition team. it looks like they have named a u.n. ambassador to the united nations. the u.s. ambassador to the united nations. it is the governor of south carolina. >> yeah. nikki haley, the great governor of my state, south carolina. we'll be switching places. i'm going down there. she's moving up to new york. it's not necessarily confirmed. this is what the charleston newspaper down in south carolina is reporting this morning. apparent apparently, there will be an announcement this morning. >> during the run-up to figuring out who exactly donald trump was going to select as his vice president, nikki haley was mentioned at that point. she famously, of course took down the confederate flag from the statehouse after the charleston shootings which you covered. she was given kudos for her -- the way she was able to handle that. there was historic floods about four months later.
3:05 am
if you're keeping track of . if she's u.n. ambassador. have they figured out who is secretary of state? the answer is maybe. they haven't told us yet. >> there are rumors swirling that he's mitt romney. he's leaning more towards mitt romney. >> it's donald trump who wants mitt romney. it's the family that doesn't. they cued up evidently, i talked to one trump insider on the transition team and they said dad, before you actually -- >> it wasn't him. >> they said take a look at his 13-minute rant against you. how do you want to deal with this? evidently, donald trump, the president-elect is not that disturbed by the fact that he even put somebody up in utah to run against him, mcmillan and that guy could have destroyed his chances of winning. >> if he chooses him, it just shows, i'm going to choose who i think is best, spite -- people
3:06 am
think he should be loyal to who was loyal to him. newt gingrich will be on the show later. >> he would prefer rudy. nonethele nonetheless, it comes down to donald trump, he's a businessman. he's trying to put together an all-star team. kellyanne conway was on last night. she said mr. t. is looking for somebody who can do the job. >> in terms of governor romney, i think the secretary of state position is such that and all the cabinet position, you have to be qualified and capable, number one. number two, you have to be loyal to what president-elect trump said his agenda is for the first 100 days. >> i'm a huge mitt romney fan. he's one of the nicest people, the most well-rounded people, unbelievable dad and husband. >> however, if you're looking for a secretary of state that is a lot like what donald trump is,
3:07 am
you're better off with rudy or ambassador bolton. that's the toughness out there. they are -- they're like-minded with the donald trump we saw campaigning as opposed to mitt romney. but mitt romney has the international experience, international business acumen, a lot of the international contacts and he's certainly got a lot of international respect that would give the world a sense that maybe donald trump -- as they suspect. >> to benefit -- i don't know how i feel about him being in that position. he's a multimillionaire. he could help the country in that regard. he's very, what's the word when you're just -- >> moderate? >> he is moderate. but he's not as bombastic. he's even-tempered. he might bring the jeb bushes into the white house or those that come around and support donald trump.
3:08 am
>> don't hold your breath on the last part, though. >> you probably wouldn't hold your breath for mitt romney a week ago. but here he is. anyway, it's up to donald trump in a couple days. meanwhile, if you were watching the newschannel yesterday at 4:00, the big news story was that the dow jones industrial average finished above 19,000 for the first time in history. there's an uptick in higher oil prices and corporate earnings and there's optimism, the experts say, about donald trump's election victory. they're optimistic that he will loosen regulation, stimulate infrastructure spending and cut taxes. >> what's incredible about this, this is since he took office. >> right. it's gone up -- >> november 8th he takes office. >> he hasn't taken office yet. >> since elected. it dipped and then went soaring up. >> a lot of it is because they believe tax reform is around the corner. they believe that drilling and using natural resources is
3:09 am
straight ahead. they believe he's going to rescind a lot of the regulations that have hamstrung a lot of the energy industry and they also get the sense that dodd/frank will be reformed or replaced. >> exactly. history was made yesterday. so you would figure that, since wall street is in new york city, "the new york times" would obviously cover that, right? i cannot find it on the -- let's see. can't really see it anywhere there. instead, they're talking about donald trump promotes brand, softens views, drops -- hints of reversal -- you would think they would cover that. >> yesterday "the new york times" did get the president-elect to walk in there after he initially said i'm not going, i am going. it's a fascinating look at what his policies are. i just don't understand in the big picture why he is trying to win "the new york times" over. it's a fruitless expedition.
3:10 am
>> it was on and it was off. apparently the incoming chief of staff for the white house, incoming, reince priebus gave donald trump erroneous information several times talking about how they changed the parameters of the interview and what not. turns out that was not accurate and ultimately they did the interview. what was interesting -- >> who told you reince priebus gave that information? >> it was in "the new york times." >> i would like to hear reince priebus on that. >> it said it was erroneous information. >> as donald trump left, he got booed. >> booed by who? >> people in the atrium at "the new york times." >> he was booed, yet there were some cheers there. he did wave to them as he was leaving. in new york city, 85% of the people did not vote for him. most of them are picketing out by the tower. >> right. my folks down in south carolina, a lot of my friends can't believe what happened at the
3:11 am
hamilton play. oh, yeah, they're really mad about that. they're not going to go see the play. up here in new york, it's a totally different story. it's 11 minutes after the hour on this day before thanksgiving. it's time for the news. >> good morning everybody. fox news alert. tragedy to bring you out of michigan this morning. another horrific and disturbing attack to tell you about on law enforcement. it's leaving departments on high alert for copycat shooters. wayne state university k-9 officer colin rhodes is clinging to life at this hour after he was shot in the head blocks from the detroit campus. the 29-year-old was investigating car break-ins when he was attacked by a man in the street. a person of interest, deangelo davis taken into custody about 10:00 p.m. last night. that ended a three-hour man hunt. >> look at the environment. not just here. but across this country.
3:12 am
we have four officers ambushed over the weekend. this needs to stop. i really believe that a lot of what's fueling these attacks on police officers are the anti-police rhetoric. >> officer rhodes is out of surgery and in critical but stable condition. a school bus driver allegedly screamed, are you ready to die before crashing that bus killing five children on board? that's according to the mother of three children who were on that chattanooga bus. police confirming the driver was going well above the 30 mile per hour speed limit when it crashed into a tree and split in half. >> my baby -- he said that the bus driver is cussing on the bus, cussing at them. drinking, speeding. >> so heartbreaking. police say that this driver,
3:13 am
jonathan i walker ws -- he had gotten his bus license in april. we're praying for the kids. in just a few hours, the man who admits to plotting terror attacks against the military and police will be sentence today prison. the 22-year-old from ohio wanted to behead an american service member and then launch a homicide attack on a cincinnati police station in the name of isis. he was monitored closely by the fbi and arrested moments after he bought an automatic rifle. that man now faces 25 years behind bars. those are your headlines. >> all right, heather. meanwhile, do you know what your kids are being assigned as homework? protesting donald trump, that's one of the assignments. >> can't make it up. is hillary clinton off the hook? president-elect donald trump transition team says there are no plans to pursue charges. what does that mean for the

whenand now with victoza®etes, there's a moment of truth. a better moment of proof. victoza lowers my a1c and blood sugar better than the leading branded pill, which didn't get me to my goal. victoza® works with your body to lower blood sugar in three ways: in the stomach, the liver, and the pancreas. and while it isn't for weight loss,

3:18 am
correspondent in studio, james rosen. james, were you surprised that this came out yesterday in "the new york times" conversation, that he says i don't want to see the clintons hurt, i'm not going to pursue an investigation. >> the president-elect may have many -- i see promise during the campaign of a special prosecutor to go after hillary clinton. that really is where the president's interest in the matter would end. in the days right before the election, our network and lots of other news organizations were telling us that the fbi investigation into the clinton foundation, as opposed to the e-mail case was still very much active and might even intensify after the election. that's a decision for the fbi and the doj to follow the facts wherever they lead. it is not within the purview of the president to say that will stop now. >> it will not stop the senate or the house from doing their own investigation into the e-mail server and jason chaffetz
3:19 am
is saying i'm not done with this. >> he may have more influence. he could say gosh, i would appreciate it if you wouldn't follow this through. he can't say that to the doj properly. >> the premiere personality when you talk about the national review and everything else about it, how would you feel about donald trump sitting down with "the new york times" yesterday and going over all these issues and maybe changing his stance already before taking office? >> probably william f. buckley. we can't say with certainty what he would have thought, that's a dangerous business to try. he would have preferred to see donald trump sit down with the pre-inaugural interview rather than hillary clinton. he had a motto, to support the most rightward viable candidate. he had written critically about donald trump. mr. buckley would have withheld that description from donald trump. >> we'll see how he felt about that. >> we're not going to see how he felt about that. mr. buckley will remain
3:20 am
deceased. >> i can tap into your knowledge of intellectual ability. james, your mission is to have a happy thanksgiving sniemtd and to you. thank you my friend. we'll see if that investigation sdmp continues. what would william buckley think. details on letting criminals out of jail. people who can call the american flag offensive. a student outraged with the policy is here to react, next. afoot and light-hearted i take to the open road. healthy, free, the world before me,

quick headlines now. french police may have just spoiled a major terror attack on a theme park. an isis ring busted in france this weekend. they were found with guns and terror propaganda. local reports say the group listed a theme park in areas with lots of police officers on a list of potential tarkts. great. heading to court over climate change. kids ages 12 to 16 are suing washington state for what they say is a failure to protect them from the effects of global warming. they wants the department of ecology to save natural resources and limit toxic gases in the air. good luck with that, kids. a college in massachusetts is banning the american flag on campus, calling it a disruptive symbol. >> this is a college in the united states of america. it all started when hampshire college protesters lowered the flag to half-staff after the election. that same flag was then found
3:25 am
burned on the ground on november 11th. veterans day. >> so then the college decided to remove the flag altogether saying this. we hope this will enable us to instead focus our efforts on addressing racist, misogynistic, islamaphobic and anti-lgbtq rhetoric and behaviors. here to make sense of this is kathy dillon, a students with campus reform. -- thanks for joining us from boston. >> thank you for having me. >> so who do you think lowered the flag to half-staff after hillary clinton lost and then wound up burning the flag on veterans day? >> well, these students haven't made their names known. but i'm assuming it's a small group of students outraged at the election and wants to protest a fair and free election. by doing this, they burned down the american flag and the college president appeased what
3:26 am
they wanted when they threw a temper tantrum. i'm outraged as a college student and as an american. >> the school's response was get rid of the american flag and all flags altogether? what are your thoughts? >> i think it's completely disrespectful. especially that this happened on the eve of veterans day. this is disrespectful to veterans. the school even acknowledged in their e-mail that it's upsetting for veterans to have the flag at half-staff without it being permitted by anyone else. instead of putting the flag back up, they remove it. this is like a mother taking away a toy from two bickering children and instead of -- instead of being a toy, this is a symbol showing the freedom of our nation. >> we know you're a correspondent for campus reform and your university is part of a consortium with this particular university. i want you to listen to one of the students who supports removing the flag. this guy actually goes to
3:27 am
hampshire college. >> do you yearn for more diversity on your campus or are you happy in a world where everyone thinks like you? >> i think diversity is a different word when you're applying it to political -- different aspects. the point of hampshire college isn't to create a model of our country and simulate political debate and what not. it's to figure out what is most liberally collect. what is the most social justice academia. >> as you listen to him speak, does it seem like he's trying to make a political statement or he's simply a sore loser? >> i think it's a little bit of both. i think that the student thinks that -- in the interview he said that to hear conservative viewpoints, he goes to the other colleges. that's insane. i'm a student in in college consortium and the other colleges don't have a lot of
3:28 am
conservative viewpoints. college is supposed to prepare you for the real world. being a conservative student, i'm more privileged than the rest of the students. i'm getting a better education because i have the ability to constantly debate with other students. they can't even tolerate different opinions. if you have a different opinion, a lot of times you're completely harassed or silenced by other students and professors. my school, fortunately -- there are smul groups of students who don't tolerate my opinions. >> i can't believe they lowered the flag to half-staff in the beginning of all of this. kathy, i think you should burn p a book on your campus and see if they remove all the books. thank you for being with us. happy thanksgiving. >> thank you for having me. little crazy. >> ridiculous. the cost to go to that college. $62,000. hayden is not going there. what do you think about that particular school where they took down all the flags. e-mail us. particularly important. >> it's the american flag. >> no kidding.

there is big news. the governor of south carolina is leaving for a job as ambassador in new york. >> you know what, i haven't thought about that. who's going to take her place in south carolina? we're learning -- >> i know the answer to that. >> you do? what is it? >> henry mcmaster. >> makes sense. >> anyway, it had been rumored for a while that governor haley would be the first woman named to donald trump's cabinet. fox news can confirm that. she has been picked to be the united states u.n. ambassador. of course, she's the daughter of indian immigrants. she's the first woman, first minority governor in south carolina's history. she is a bright star in the republican party, and she is a big part now of donald trump's cabinet. >> that's right. she's responsible for taking the confederate flag down from the state grounds. it was on top of the dome. they moved it down to the state house grounds so when you drove down main street, there was the big confederate flag. she took that down after the charleston shooting. her parents own a beautiful

4:05 am
saying, i think it's a good pick. clearly they set their differences aside. >> tim says, i think romney should have no position ever. he actively tried to derail the nominee of his own party. >> then jim says, can romney be loyal? i don't think so at this point. >> and donnie said, if president-elect trump chooses romney, he will show us he's ready to lead, working with everyone. and that's a really good point. initially when they met a couple days ago, i thought, well, it's good for unity. if he does put him on i hhis cabinet, it shows donald trump can step aside, move past the campaign, much like he did with the hillary clinton announcement yesterday that he's not going to go after her. >> i talked to a senator on capitol hill. he said bolton and rudy really give the international affairs unit and the state department some muscle. not only does that place have to be represented by someone who doesn't want to go to five-star
4:06 am
hotels and eat fancy meals with ambassadors like john kerry, they need to be cleaned out. the state department needs to get in line with the trump fi philosop philosophy. >> i'm curious to find out what happens to rudy if he doesn't get this. >> national intelligence director of homeland security. i don't know if he would accept it. >> so let's see. the only other name we know for sure is dr. ben carson. he confirmed on our air yesterday that he has been tapped to be the h.u.d. director. >> david petraeus says he leaves the door open to joining the trump administration. a former contributor here, harold ford, who almost was a senator from tennessee in that republican state. bob corker beat him. he's being considered for a job in the trump administration, possibly with transportation. michelle rhee says forget about her, take herself out of the running for education secretary, which makes sense. she was pro-common core. >> all this might not even matter because -- >> doesn't matter at all because hillary clinton is the rightful president of the united states.
4:07 am
>> that's right. according to scientists, there could be a recount, and hillary clinton could actually win. >> on thursday apparently john podesta took a call with a number of voting rights experts and computer security experts who looked at the data, particularly for the states of wisconsin, michigan, and pennsylvania. what they found was this. those three states right there, which really led to trump winning the presidency. they said that the states with paper ballots or optical scanners, she, hillary clinton, was 7% higher than in the states with electronic. so in other words, they're surmising that perhaps somebody got in, hacked into those, and wound up giving donald trump the whole thing. here's the thing. they say maybe. they have absolutely no proof. the white house says we're not interested, we're trying to do a smooth transition. if they want to file a recount, they've got to hurry because the deadline in wisconsin is friday. then it's monday in pennsylvania.
4:08 am
and it is the 30th for michigan. >> i don't think we should even give them the time of day. we know he's about to win michigan officially. that would put donald trump over 300 electoral votes. it was a blowout. i just wonder what these democrats are doing trying to convince their electoral representatives not to vote the way the people wanted. >> there are six of them. >> now there's these states, let's have a recount. you're seeing all these other people protesting in 300 cities. they don't like the outcome of the event. >> brian, they're saying it's rigged are, but they have absolutely no evidence it's rigged. to some, it might look like they're sore losers, but they didn't really want donald trump president and they're pulling out all the stops. >> hillary's camp is not commenting. no telling. >> we should not even give it anymore time. let's give heather some time. >> thank you. good morning. almost thanksgiving. we're looking forward to that. first, we begin with a fox news alert. some tragic news to bring you

call [healthmarkets] now! we have a fox news alert. this morning a big announcement from the president-elect's transition team. that lady right there, she is south carolina's governor, nikki haley, officially selected as the u.s. ambassador to the u.n. >> this as haley's friend mitt romney is still in the running for secretary of state. here for reaction is mike huckabee, joining us from little rock. good morning. >> good morning. happy thanksgiving. >> thank you very much. it looks like donald trump has his first woman on his cabinet. what do you think of nikki haley. >> you know, i would have
4:17 am
preferred rick rinell just because he's been a loyal, outspoken supporter of donald trump. he's got great experience in the diplomatic world. but it's donald trump's decision to make, if in fact, it's confirmed. i think the surprise is nikki hae haley was anything but supportive and complimentary of donald trump. personnel is policy. who you appoint to positions, whether your policy or not, that's going to be their policy at some point coming through. you either have somebody who learns to get loyal quickly or somebody who is going to be a distraction. in many cases, somebody who will be a problem because they don't bring to the table that sense of loyalty and compatibility. >> interesting. i guess that leads me to my next question, if it is true that donald trump wants mitt romney to be secretary of state and the family and others areback again. they'd rather have rudy or bolton.
4:18 am
i guess you side with anybody but mitt. >> it's not that i don't care for mitt personally, but i'm still very unhappy that mitt did everything he could to derail donald trump. he didn't just go after him from a standpoint of saying i disagree with his policy on immigration. he attacked him on a personal level about his character, integrity, his honor. when you do that, there's only one way that i think mitt romney could even be considered for a post like that. that is that he goes to a microphone in a very public place and repudiates everything he said in that famous salt lake city speech. and everything he said after that where he said donald trump wasn't fit, that he lacked character, on and on. that's beyond just the normal political infighting that we all experience. political infighting is part of the game. but when you go after a person who is the nominee of your party, who has been dually nominated by the voters, you're
4:19 am
savaging the voters, not just donald trump. so it would be a real insult to all those donald trump voters who worked really hard. he has to stop and consider. >> and if he gets it over rudy, rudy is the most loyal guy outside you that he had. if he wants that job and you give it to the most disloyal, that's a bad message. >> governor, did he offer you a position? if so, what would you want? or what did he offer you, if he did? >> well, i'm not talking about what it was. i was offered a cabinet slot. i didn't think it was a great fit for me. you know, i didn't do anything i did for donald trump because i was elbowing for a government job. i'm not. a lot of people really want it. i'm at a point in my life where i'm quite satisfied with not being in a government job. you know, if he tabbed me for something and really convinced me he wanted to turn me loose and do some reforms, you know, you got to consider that. but as far as, you know, i'm sitting around waiting by the phone because i'm hoping i'm going to be invited to washington, look, i don't even like that town. i take shots every time i go.
4:20 am
i feel like i don't want to be infected with whatever it is going on up there. >> what position would you go for? >> never would discuss it. let me just be very candid. two things you've got to bring to a president. one is your loyalty. the other is your confide confidentiali confidentiality. if you're not loyal, you have no business being there. if you can't keep a confidence, you're a detriment, not really an asset. >> and you know what, you just passed that test. all right. mike huckabee joining us today from little rock. governor, have a great thanksgiving with your family. >> you too. have a wonderful holiday. all the best. >> thank you. you too. >> there's no couching that. know exactly where he stands. 20 minutes after the top of the hour. this is the busiest travel day of the year. coming up, just how confident is donald trump, the president-elect, he's already making an eight-year plan for his presidency. not just four, eight. >> so you're saying he's confident. >> he's a confident guy. all right. thanks to the election, could

4:26 am
brian? >> etiquette expert lizzy post is here. >> first of all, look who's here. she's like next to god in our house. wedding invitations, we were googling what she would do. >> you're legendary. here in new york city, you don't have to go far to see how upset people are about politics and the election. how do we handle it? it's going to come up on thanksgiving. >> no, it absolutely is. the best thing you can do is set expectations from the start. as a hostess, it's perfectly okay for you to say, hey, i really want us to connect and catch up over this holiday, so let's leave politics away from the table. >> but don't leave it surface conversation. you think politics is going to be explosive. >> no, it will be. but it's okay for you to redirect the conversation. this is actually -- we partnered with bob evans this holiday season because both our brands are known for hospitality. we created a helpline to allow people to call in and ask
4:27 am
questions about table settings, how to redirect that conversation, what to do. do you have a kids' table or not? any question you have, we're ready to handle it. >> and you said be friendly and be firm. >> okay. so this is if the conversation just won't stop. you've got that one uncle who just won't let it go. it's really okay to absolutely say, listen, uncle tim, i really appreciate that you have these opinions, but i absolutely want to leave politics out of this thanksgiving. so tell me about your trip to the grand canyon this summer. redirect. redirect positively. >> and i also understand, too, a lot of people get, why aren't you married yet? when are you going to have kids? who are you making out with? you don't want to bring that up. >> no, it's okay for you to redirect that conversation. oh, we haven't made a decision, but tell me where your kids are going to college this year. >> you have a holiday helpline for folks who get into some trouble. what's the number? >> 855-4-my-table.

>> that's if you need advice on cutting your turkey or talking. >> absolutely. i'll be standing by to answer phones. we have a ton of people standing by. >> is there anything wrong with engaging? are there times when it's good to engage in politics? the biggest upset in american political history doesn't come up? >> i think that it's okay if your family is comfortable talking about it. but do remember that extra guest that might be new to your family. you don't always want to overwhelm them with a very opinionated conversation. >> so they don't come back next year. what's the big deal? >> the producers were telling me, what's the hashtag that's trending right now? how to avoid politics at dinner. >> there you go. >> people are asking on twitter. i said, what are some of the responses? she said one guy says, go sit at the kid table if you don't want to talk politics. >> i love it. another great option. >> how to avoid politics at dinner. >> absolutely. here's the thing. you want to engage. the other thing that's bad is if
4:29 am
you go through thanksgiving, you don't see these people all year long, and you don't have a real conversation. >> ask them how they're really doing. ask them about what they've been up to. this is one of the few times you get to connect with family. why do you want to make it divisive. why do you want to make it an argument. >> everyone in my family pretty much feels the same when it comes to politics. >> that'll be easy. you can call the hotline for how o set up the buffet or whether or not to have the kids table. >> my mom will call because she wants to talk to you. >> thank you so much for coming. >> thank you. i really appreciate it. >> steve, tell me what's coming up next. i have no idea. >> i've got it right here, brian. we have one university's answer to people who call themselves -- say the american flag is offensive. they say just take the flag down. we can't even keep up with your e-mails on this one. we'll readsome of them to you coming up. and the so-called experts predicted an economic meltdown courtesy of donald trump. if he's elected, we're straight in the toilet. instead, we set a record high yesterday on the stock market.

the east and the west are mine. the north and the south are mine. all seems beautiful to me. got a fox business alert. number one, tomorrow is thanksgiving. number two, yesterday the wall street dow jones industrial average closed, stuart, at a record high. 19,023. >> correct. >> it's a big story. and yes, you look at "the new york times," stuart, it's nowhere there. for business, it had something about the trade war. why wouldn't they talk about donald trump? apparently now that he's president, so many people are optimistic, they're putting money in the stock market.
4:34 am
>> 15 days ago, right at the election, everybody was talking doom and gloom. that market was going to tank. >> it did. >> no, it did not. >> it came back. >> it tanked in the futures market and came right back. for the last 15 days, we've all enjoyed the trump rally. we closed above 19,000. that's the best level we've ever seen for stocks. >> what's driving? >> growth. schi simple as that. it's growth. wait a second. donald trump has a plan to cut taxes for individuals and for corporations and to spend big on infrastructure. that means a chunk of money flowing into the economy by the spring of next year. a lot of money. that's called stimulus. that means probably a good shot at 4% growth relatively quickly. the market loves that. that's what investors want to hear. >> can black friday make it go even higher? >> no, black friday has nothing
4:35 am
to do with the stock market. nothing at all. >> in addition to the fact we broke history on wall street yesterday, did you see the new quinnipiac poll that came out that said 60% of americans are now optimistic about the next four years with donald trump? >> that's another thing. there has been a change of mood. we've got from negative pessimism towards positive feelings about growth in the economy. there's a change of mood, and that's very important. >> did you know this is stuart's first thanksgiving as an american? >> thank you very much indeed, ladies and gentlemen. >> what's it mean? >> it means a lot. it's almost like the day that i swore an oath to uphold the constitution and become a citizen. it's a very big deal. and this is the holiday which i love above all others. it is uniquely american. it's not nationalistic. it's not religious. it's not patriotic. it's just family and friends. so watch out for politics around the dinner table tomorrow. >> how many of your kids are going to be there? >> tomorrow i've got five
4:36 am
grandchildren and two daughters. >> good enough. >> not bad. not quite all. >> we are so thankful you're here and you're an american.ons. >> thank you. you get a secondhand shake. >> don't you guys like stuart varney over there? come on. >> my fellow americans. all right. >> let's go to another american, heather. >> heather, my fellow american, it's yours. >> happy thanks giving to all of you. we're all certainly proud of it. i have a fox news alert to bring you. it regards thanksgiving. the nypd is now deploying 3,000 of its police officers to the thanksgiving day parade here in new york city amid fears of a possible terror attack plot. it is considered an unprecedented move. the force's entire counterterrorism unit will now work on thanksgiving holiday. every cross street along the parade route will shut down and will be barricaded with sand
4:37 am
trucks. bomb-sniffing dogs will also be on patrol. an isis magazine recently published a picture of the thanksgiving parade, urging followers to attack crowds with trucks. president-elect donald trump adopted several catch phrases on his campaign trail, but this one really seemed to stick. >> drain the swamp. >> well, that phrase was intended to mean eliminating corruption from washington, but now a writer from the southern poverty law center says that phrase is racist. >> among the people that were spreading the drain the swamp hashtag were vowed racists, white supremacists who exist on twitter to harass and demean various ethnic groups. >> okay. well, that writer also suggested donald trump isn't doing enough to stop spreading violence. one university's answer to people who call the american flag offensive, take it down. hampton college in massachusetts
4:38 am
banning the flag after students lowered it to half staff, protesting the results of the election. it was then found burned on veterans' day. earlier, we spoke to an outraged student. listen. >> instead of putting the flag back up where it should be, they completely removed it altogether. this is like a mother taking away a toy from two bickering children. instead of giving one child the toy, they're just completely removing it. >> wow. the college says they hope this move will help them focus on addressing what they call racist behavior. interesting. in the days following the 9/11 terror attacks, i spent time at that school, and they blamed america for the terror attacks. >> blamed america. >> all right. thank you, heather. let's get responses from you, the viewer. here's what you're saying. the responses are off the charts. >> roger says, if a u.s. college cannot proudly and fully display the symbol of the very nation that guarantees their freedoms, all federal funding should be cut off.
4:39 am
roger, you weren't the only person who sent that sentiment. >> harmony says, thousands, maybe millions, have sacrificed and died for our rights. the flag should mean something to everyone. >> yeah, we saw with the nfl it doesn't mean anything to some players. and khalid writes, are you kidding me? i'm from a family of immigrants and i find the flag to be inspiring. the flag represents your privilege to be offended. very well put. >> meanwhile, as you can see right behind me, the woman in the red apron is janice dean. we're out here on the plaza with johnny rockets. it's their 30th anniversary and it's free burgers for everybody. >> i love this setup so much. could we do this every single day monday through friday? >> you're usually the weather machine. today you've been the dancing machine. >> they're teaching me some dance moves you have never seen before. look out, america. first of all, calvin, come over here. what's the most popular thing on menu? >> today it's the jukebox burger, which is caramelized onions with pepper smoked bacon
4:40 am
with double american cheese and mayo. >> that sounds so good. i have to do the weather real quick, okay? let's take a look at the maps. we don't have any travel delays, according to the faa. but we have a storm system across the central midwest, great lakes that might cause delays. if you live across the eastern seaboard, the big cities looking good. if you live in chicago, minneapolis, across portions of the northwest -- are you freezing out here? >> just a little. >> well, you're by the nice stove. what do you call this thing? the grill. can you come to my house for thanksgiving? >> absolutely. i'm there. >> okay. we don't have to cook, honey. we're going to be doing some grilling. we're doing some weather. we're doing some dancing. you cannot switch that channel at all, ever. >> we also broke some news. janice dean is having burgers for thanksgiving. >> sounds great. because they're free.
4:41 am
>> tomorrow, 5:00 a.m. >> janice, calvin, thank you. straight ahead, they're grown adults who didn't get their way. kind of. let's watch this. >> the end of the presidential race feels like the end of the world. >> how the [ bleep ] did we get here and what the [ bleep ] do we do now? >> mark stein joins us with the lessons democrats refuse to learn. >> that's right. and no one but donald trump would win the state of north carolina. then he won the state of north carolina. abby huntsman is talking to jienejie diners in wilmington. >> reporter: good morning. i'm here with megan. she's 21, works two jobs, in college. she voted for the very first time in her life for mr. trump, says it was so invigorating walking out of that voting booth. we've been talking about the protests and how a lot of them are your age. what message do you have for them? >> i feel like it's very childish because i feel like it's not really going to change the outcome of what has already taken place, so there's no point in destructing property and
4:42 am
things like that. i just think it's pointless. >> reporter: we're talking a lot more here. come back right after this break. our eyes...they have a 200-degree range of sight... which is good for me hey! ... and bad for the barkley twins. take care of all your most important parts with centrum. with our most vitamin d three ever.
4:43 am
4:44 am
4:45 am
well, first they mocked him, donald trump. >> trump has been saying he'll run for president as a republican, which is surprising since i just assumed he was running as a joke. >> i will personally write you a campaign check now. >> i'm just really happy right now. >> there is zero chance we'll be seeing you sworn in on the capital steps with your hand on a giant golden bible. >> well, stephen colbert, you were really, really wrong. and now that he's president-elect, donald trump is no laughing matter to liberals acting like it's the end of the world. they certainly have. >> this is it, the end of the
4:46 am
presidential race, and feels like the end of the world. >> we are faced with the same questions as the guy that woke up the day after a vegas bachelor party deep in the desert, naked, tied to a kas us it and a dead clown. namely, how the [ bleep ] did we get here, and what the [ bleep ] do we do now? >> okay. our next guest actually has the answer. he's the host of the mark stein show starting on december 5th. mark stein joins us today from burlington, vermont. good morning to you. >> hey, good to be with you, steve. happy thanksgiving. >> thank you very much. we all have a lot to be thankful for. although, you listen to those lefty comedians, and they are in grieving because this was never supposed to happen. >> no, they've got nothing to be thankful for. i don't think they realize they're part of the problem, that they're not helping. they were a big reason why trump won a couple weeks ago. in effect, they confirmed his thesis that whenever you saw the
4:47 am
big celebrities next to hillary clinton, it confirmed that this racket works for them, it works for a certain number of boutique businesses and elites, but it doesn't work for millions and millions of americans across the country. so if i was a celebrity and i wanted to help hillary clinton, if i was katy perry or lady gaga or lena dunham or john oliver, i'd shut the hell up. if they'd done that, they might not have been so surprised by what happened. >> sure. well, they do look like sore losers, mark, but at the same time, it must be crushing to their egos to think, wait a minute, there are more people who were for donald trump when it comes to the electoral college, than were for hillary clinton. so their candidate lost. and it just -- you know, it just hasn't worked for them for a while. so they're in denial. >> it was interesting. i was looking at you sitting by
4:48 am
that jukebox. in the jukebox era, you had popular, popular culture. now we have niche popular culture. if you have these boutique stars -- there's as many people who dislike them as like them. more people know lena dunham, for example, for her political views than ever watched the television show she's in. so in a sense, they're no longer in show business. they're no longer in entertainment. they've actually decided to prioritize their politics over their comedy careers. and it's not working out for their comedy because john oliver, that's deadsville when you're reduced to just shouting the "f" word because you're totally bewildered by what's happened in the country you're supposed to be reporting on. it does nothing for you politics. it does nothing for your comedy. a two-way loser. you should always be able to see, as you well know, steve, you should always be able to see the comedy in your own side.
4:49 am
that's what these guys lost in trying to drag hillary over the finish line. >> well, they certainly are no johnny carson. he was an equal opportunity comic who made fun of both sides. unfortunately, these days it seems like they're all lefties on late night. mark stein has a new show. it premieres on december 5th on crtv. and look for it on stein online, right? >> that's right. steinonline.com. that's with a "y." >> all right. mark, thank you r for joining us. have a great thanksgiving. >> always a pleasure. >> thank you, sir. straight ahead on this wednesday, throughout the election we traveled the battleground states asking voters which candidate would wind up with their vote. abby is in wilmington, north carolina. we're going to check in with her and all those people at the

5:02 am
it'll be indoors at a different location. joining us now is newt gingrich. welcome back. >> we got you a cheese burger, mr. speaker. >> it's never too early for a cheese burger, right? >> breaking news. fox news has confirmed the president-elect has chosen nikki haley as u.n. ambassador. what do you think of that pick? >> well, i think she's a very, very successful governor. she's a very smart woman. i think she'll be very effective at the united nations, as effective as any american can be in an organization which has an enormous hostility to our values and to our interests. but i think nikki haley will do a very good job. i think it's part of president-elect trump's very patient process of building out a team. >> governor huckabee was a little upset, said she wasn't loyal to him, wasn't loyal to donald trump in the process, said some bad things about him. how do you feel about that? >> look, president-elect trump has made very clear he wants to
5:03 am
be the president of the whole country. he wants to bring people together. that's got to start in the republican party. i suspect that's part of why he met with mitt romney over the weekend. certainly governor haley was not in the general election anything but supportive. i think, you know, there were 16 people running. so a lot of folks are going to support somebody else. you don't want to narrow your base only to people who were loyal from day one. i think you'll see other people who weren't necessarily for him at the beginning also getting significant jobs. >> yeah, like mitt romney. we wanted to talk to you about that. we were reading this morning that you said there were 20 other people that you could put in front of mitt romney to get secretary of state. >> well, i just think the challenge with governor romney is not just what he said about trump. he was trump's most vicious and explicit opponent all through the campaign on the republican side. you have to list out all the things he said and think, is this guy really going to be loyal? but he wanted to be president, not secretary of state.
5:04 am
you have to ask the question, when he goes overseas, is he going to be the secretary of state for president trump, or is he going to be mitt romney's own secretary of state? i would hope that -- and again, i will support whoever president-elect trump picks because he has the right, i think, as the new president to build the team he wants to build. but i would suggest there are a lot of other people who are more qualified than romney on foreign policy and who are also -- have not been as actively hostile as he's been. >> sure, absolutely. that's an understatement. i know when you were on our program earlier a couple days ago, you said you would like to assist the president-elect as a strategic planner, not an official white house job with cards printed up and stuff like that. but as a strategic planner right now, make the case for why mitt romney would actually help the president-elect. >> well, look, if president-elect trump picks
5:05 am
romney, he can make the case that this proves he's going to unify. if he also gets one or two democrats to join the cabinet, the steps towards making him a national unity president, which is what he wants to do, i think that's the tone of his interview yesterday at "the new york times." so you can make that case. but i can also tell you that when we met at trump tower, we had a very good meeting with the president-elect on monday afternoon. i walked him through why with 4100 state legislators and governors as well as the house, senate, and 4,000 political appointees in the executive branch, i think we have an opportunity, if we think strategically, to really put together a republican government in a way that rivals what franklin roosevelt did in the 1930s. >> wow. so on top of that, some other people have said they put their names in the fray, including david petraeus. david petraeus says, if i'm asked, i'll do it. we also know mattis seems to be everybody's pick for secretary of defense. you want to weigh in?
5:06 am
>> well, look, i've known general mattis for a very long time. he's one of the most talented, most practical senior commanders in the american military in our lifetime. he would be brilliant at anything he did. he's also a total patriot, so i'm confident if president-elect trump asks him to, that he would serve as secretary of defense and do so executing the president's desires. jim mattis understands the way the american system works. there's a reason george washington wanted the president called commander in chief. washington had been a commander in chief. he thought that for the war to be prosecuted effectively, the guy at the top had to be in charge. i think general mattis thoroughly understands that. i think he'd be a great secretary of defense. >> petraeus? >> look, i think general petraeus has a tremendous record. there are a lot of things he could do well. certainly if somebody asked him to be the director of national intelligence, he would have an extraordinary range of skills to bring to bear. he understands as a war fighter
5:07 am
what we need from the intelligence community. he understands as a former head of the cia a large part of this intelligence community from the inside. he's a very talented, very smart guy. >> what did you think of president-elect trump saying he's not going to pursue charges against hillary clinton, especially after just a few weeks ago he was saying he's going to lock her up, put her in jail, and a lot of the trump supporters were screaming and chanting "lock her up"? what's your response? >> i think it depends on exactly what he meant. i heard reince priebus explaining it last night on bill o'reilly. i think it would be as wrong for a president of the united states to say we're not going to enforce the law against somebody as it would be for the president of the united states to say i'm going to direct the justice department or the irs to go after somebody. so i hope what president-elect trump was saying is that he is not personally going to interfere with or in any way suggest to the fbi and the irs
5:08 am
what they should be doing. he is not going to pursue a political vendetta, but i also hope he's not going to -- and i can't imagine that the new attorney general jeff sessions would tolerate sending signals to the fbi or the irs that they should not look at law breaking. if laws are broken in a serious way, whether by secretary clinton or her staff or her husband, then the system has an ab obligation to enforce the law. but the president should not follow up on a vendetta that's political. >> it's interesting, newt. while a lot of people are steamed that donald trump said that yesterday, "the new york post" on the op-ed page today say they like donald trump's about face on sending hillary to jail, where he says, you know, essentially, i want to move forward. they write, the nation's business needs doing, let's move on. so symbolically, you know, move on past that. >> but let me draw a really sharp distinction here.
5:09 am
the president of the united states, the new president-elect, should not have a personal vendetta. >> we understand that. >> but he also does not have the authority to step in and say we're going to cover up all the crimes committed by the foundation, we're going to cover up all the crimes committed by her staff, we're going to ignore the facts. that would, in fact, be fully as much a violation of the rule of law as what obama did. so i think it's very important for president-elect trump to be very careful in this area. he can express i had personal view that he doesn't want to have a vendetta, he's going forward, but i think for him to interfere and say to the fbi or ris or justice department, you should not pay attention to law breaking. that would be a tremendous blow to the rule of law. >> he hasn't done that yet. >> the clinton foundation being investigated by the fbi right now anyway, unless he's going to stop it. criminal. all right. i want to talk about what he said to "the new york times" yesterday. in a way, he's backing off his view on pulling out of the paris treaty. he's also saying i'm not sure
5:10 am
about enhanced interrogation. are you concerned at all about some reversal about some things he said on the stump so quickly with an interview with "the new york times"? >> my impression -- and this is all just newspaper reporting. my impression is that general mattis, when they met, said he didn't believe in enhanced interrogation. given how tough general mattis has been as a marine general, the job he's done in the middle east, i suspect that probably slowed president-elect trump down a little bit. you've got to say this is the guy i want to have as secretary of defense and he doesn't believe in it, maybe i better caution and temper what i said earlier. clearly, though, he's always going to say, when in doubt, push the envelope, go after the terrorists, do what you have to, to make america safe. on the paris treaty, i'm not sure exactly what all that means. the fact is if we're going to issue the kind of reversals that president-elect trump campaigned on in terms of saving coal as an
5:11 am
industry, helping small towns in kentucky, west virginia, pennsylvania, ohio, et cetera, that puts a real strain on the implementation of the paris accords. and i suspect he will have scientists around him who are much more skeptical than the climate fanatics that barack obama relied on. >> that's a good point. mr. speaker, one of the other nuggets from "the new york times" interview yesterday was perhaps his son-in-law jared kushner could head up events to broker peace in the middle east. what do you think about that notion? >> well, look, jared kushner is one of the smartest people i've ever worked with. he was an absolute key to how the amazing trump victory occurred. he feels very passionately about trying to find a path to security and safety for the state of israel. whether or not that -- and he's obviously extraordinarily close to the president-elect. that would be interesting.
5:12 am
i think they would have to get a waiver to the antinepotism law. that might be a little tricky, although i think if they worked at it, they could do it. certainly i would favor jared kushner's intelligence and skills being put to good use in the united states wherever he would feel committed to invest his time and his life. and having somebody with a totally fresh approach might be a good starting point in the middle east. i also hope they will move the embassy to jerusalem on the 20th of january. we've been committed to it a long time. i helped pass the bill when i makes it possible. i really hope the president-elect will keep that commitment the day he's sworn in. >> he said he would. >> mr. speaker, can you talk to our producers? rather than sending us down to mar-a-lago, where the president-elect is, they had us here on the streets of new york city where it's currently about 25 degrees. >> well, they knew how much you wanted johnny rockets for

5:19 am
converted 2,000 part-time employees into full-time employees to speed you through the long lines. in atlanta, delta has experimented with tsa over automated carousels where you put your luggage and carry-on through. that seems to speed things up. what they're telling everybody, get to the airport almost three hours ahead of time. back to you. >> that's a long time at the airport. all right. adam, thank you. >> look at this. >> they just brought out the cheesy fries. ed, have one. come on. >> so good. >> all right. straight ahead on this wednesday, president obama's legacy will now include letting a record number of criminals out of jail. we got details coming up. and throughout the election, we traveled the battleground states, asking the voters which candidate had their vote and why. well, this morning we're back on tour to see how they feel about the results. look at that. there's abby huntsman. she's live at jimbo's diner in

5:25 am
white house. right now career politicians, you know, they become corrupt. >> and you' >> reporter: and you're in sales. >> well, retired sales. but i'm still working. i definitely think that, you know, having a businessman in the white house will make a change. >> reporter: and you think he needs to stick to his word. >> yeah, but he needs to stick to his word. >> reporter: and not be a regular politician. i want to the go to this table. these three gentlemen, you guys have breakfast here every wednesday. so you're saying that actually when it comes to charging hillary clinton, you say that mr. trump doesn't need to do that. >> well, he has so many other things on his plate. this isn't a priority as far as the country is concerned. >> reporter: and you work for the dea. >> used to, i retired. >> reporter: why did you vote for mr. trump? >> because he wasn't hillary clinton. it was my only other choice. >> reporter: but you voted for him because of business, the economy. you say he's not a politician and you like that.
5:26 am
you think he's going to do good things for small businesses. >> i was -- i voted for him as a preference of the two, but my main reason was because i think as a businessman, successful businessman, he's able to choose the right people and get things done. that makes a difference. you want somebody up there at the top that can get things done, that can pick the right people. there's no way the president can do it all himself. >> reporter: and both of you gentlemen were marines. you say that the military is a big one, maybe changing the va. >> yeah, va is one of those issues where everybody talks about it during an election but no one ever does anything. i've watched that for years and years. in four years, i would expect the va to be a lot better than it is now, if not, i'll change my vote. >> reporter: that's the hope. all right. thanks, you guys. thanks for talking with us this morning. back to new york. >> all right. actually, we're still outside here in new york city. we're currently with a windchill
