tv   Fox News Sunday With Chris Wallace  FOX News  December 4, 2016 7:00pm-8:01pm PST

7:00 pm
i'm chris wallace. president-elect trump takes a victory lap and previews what's in store when he takes the oath of office next month. >> i'm going to discuss our action plan to make america great again. >> and trump is already acting, intervening to keep jobs in the u.s. and naming a retired marine general to lead the pentagon. >> we are going to appoint mad dog mattis as our secretary of defense. then insults fly when top officials from the clinton and trump campaigns meet at a harvard forum. >> i would rather >> i would rather lose than win did. y you guys
7:01 pm
>> no you wouldn't. >> we will get the latest on that and the trump transition live from top adviser. then green party presidential nominee jill stein who is pushing for recounts in three states donald trump won narrowly. it's a fox news sunday exclusive. plus we ask our sunday panel what democrats should do now afterho members in the house reelect nancy pelosi as their leader. and ourcy power player of the week,> veterans training servic dogs and healing themselves. >> the healing bond works better than any intervention that i am aware of. >> all right now on "fox news sunday." >> hello again from fox news in washington. this week donald trump demonstrated for any d doubter t there how unconventional a president he will be intervening directly to keep 1,000 jobs from going to mexico, holding a
7:02 pm
campaign-style rally where he continued to c bash the media a holdings conversations with foreign leaders. h joiningyo me now from trump transition headquarters, kellyanne conway. >> thanks for having me, chris. >> let's start with the controversy over the call that mr. trump took this week from taiwan's president, the first-time tleaders of the two countries haveok spoken since u. broke off relations in 1979. you say mr. trump was fully briefed and knew what he was doing beforeoe the call. does he intend to change our one china policy which recognizes only w beijing. >> president-elect trump accepted the congradualatory call. that is theld 40th or 50th worl
7:03 pm
leader who reached out since they won the election last month. they spoke to israel, singapore, japan, china. >> this is different. does thisic signal a change in policy or was it just a phone call? >> it was just a phone call at this point. it signals the fact that he accepted ay call. i know that china has a perspective on it. the white house and state department probably have a perspective on it and certainly taiwan has an perspective on it the president-elect's perspective is he accepted the call. when he is sworn in as president andes commander in chief in a little over a month he will make clear what the plans are. people shouldn't read too much intoto it. some of the pressh coverage, no here necessarily, really is astonishing when yous think abot how it was covered when barack obama was going t to try to rea out to iran with the iran
7:04 pm
nuclear deal. t president-elect receives a phon call from a world leader in another countrybo we know about one china. he is routinely briefed on these just what ithat is is. >> let me ask you about this. one reason such a big deal was made of it is because of the fact that the president-elect has hadid a number of controversial phone calls with foreign leaders. he reportedly told pakistani prime minister he could play any role you want me to play to address and find solutions to the country's problems despite pakistan's relationship with terrorists. he spoke with philippine president dduterte who is accud of ordering murder of thousands of suspected drug dealers. why is mr. trump refusing the state department's offer to brief him before the calls? and why is he skipping the daily briefings, intelligence briefings, that president obama gets every day?
7:05 pm
>> he is not always skipping briefings. he is briefed by a number of credible sources on these issues. i think people are cherry picking about these world leaders. and they are accusing the president-elect. this is really unfair when you think about we just had an election and the opponent, hillary clinton,us who was the secretary of state was using the state departmente to get money from foreign governments like saudi arabia which doesn't even respect the roles of women. ifie anyone has their hair on fe trying to reverse the election results let's give this man time to form his cabinet and showing respect to the current president, president obama, who is still the president for about 6 1/2 i more weeks and is commander in chief. president-elect trump is not making policy or announcing
7:06 pm
policy. he is merely taking phone calls and i'm sure he will reengage with many leaders once he takes the oath of office. >>ic speaking of people with ha on fire last week you went on several other sunday talk shows to express the concern of trump supporters about the consideration >> i am hearing from people who say my parents are penniless but i gave $216 to donald trump's campaign. >> i know you say mr. trump gave you permission but is that a proper way to treat somebody who is talking about accepting a role in public service? > first, the president-elect said he gave me permission. that's actually true. i didid not say something publically that i haven't expressed privately and i would never purposefully embarrass
7:07 pm
him. he has my respect. >> i'm not h talking about mr. trump. tr i'm talking about mr. romney. is that an appropriate way to discuss a guy discussing public service? >> i am reflecting the news and not trying to make the news. in a week ished that whenen president-elect trump to the "new york times" on the record he would look at waterboarding and paris accords, he was not interested in focussing on prosecuting because he was focussed on -- he understandsmi other agencies an individuals are charged with that responsibility. but in a week, the breath taking back lash was really about this particular perspective of cabinet member. i would ask was it appropriate for governor romney to stick his neck out so far in attacking donald trump and never n walkin it back and never encouraging
7:08 pm
people to support the nominee once trump won the nominationon squarely and fairl i have spoken my piece on that and thend president-elect knows and i have said publically, whatever he chooses has my full support andet backing. >> let me follow up on that. clearly romney is under consideration. if mr. trump picks romney what are you going to say to those trump supporters who are going to feel betrayed? >>ng i will say to the trump supporters what i say to those who vote for the new president-elect who have af har time accepting the fact that he is the president. you have to work together. youem have to accept his judgme and the man is brilliant. the man is the best negotiator. he is the best communicator. he just pulled off the upset of the century perhaps. and the fact is you have to trust hiss instincts and
7:09 pm
judgment. s certainly iinspires me daily t work with him. everyone i hope will accept that and thend president-elect and t president-electl alone will mak the decision as to whom he should a have serving him at th highest levels ofut government. >> let's talk about mr. trump nfs stingts because he went to indiana to celebrate that carrier iser going to keep 1,00 jobs in the state. here he is. >> c companies are not going to leave the united states anymore without consequences. not going to happen. it's not going to happen. >> in an editorial friday with headline trump's carrier shake down the wall street journal said america won't become more prosperous by coursing noneconomicin investments.
7:10 pm
i don't have to tell you that is the conservative view of how a free market works and that politicians shouldn't be picking winners and losers. sarah palin calls this an example ofam crony capitalism. >> the president-elect simply disagrees. if you look at w what happened, this is what leaders do. certainly what people have been widely successful in building businesses across the globe as the president-elect has done. you produce. youe. deliver. you achieve results. everybody looks at the results here. this is about 1,100 workers are going to stay in indiana. his running mate, the vice president elect is theov govern of indiana. together they work with carrier. there are incentives here. they worked with carrier to find a way together to keep those jobs here and not to go to mexico. it is astonishing to see this happen. the current president could have donene it. he never did it. the president-electnt did it before he was sworn in. $7 million in incentives carry
7:11 pm
over ten years. that is $700,000 per year. that's about $785, maybe $800 perhi worker. some type of intervention. this guy ran from day one. he already dlived. >> i want to get into two more subjects with you. harvard's institute of politics holds a forum every four years where w representatives of winng andai losing campaign get togetr and try to have a kind of academic review of what happened. itst wasn't that way this year. it got pretty ugly. here are some exchanges between you and clinton communications director. here they are. >> do you think iran campaigned where write supremacists had a platform. >> providing a platform for
7:12 pm
white supremacists. >> i am -- >> ila would rather lose than w the way you guys did. >> no you wouldn't, respectfully. >> whatt did you take away from that? >> the rest of the exchange was me telling her and her team that all you needed to do was recognize that a lot of voters had a very hard time accepting hillary clinton as this outsider disrupter who was ethically clean and would treat all americans fairly and had an economic message for a lot of working america. the idea thate. -- they can say what they want about me and my team. we have very a broad shoulders here as you can imagine. over 60 million hard working men and women who became part of the
7:13 pm
movement to pretend donald trump was not there every day bringing his case directly to the american people that we are going to reform the veterans administration, that we are going to stand behind law enforcement, that he is going to create $25 million jobs, repeal and replace obama care which has reduced the quality and choice and access and increases the price of health care for many americans. he is going to defeat radical islamic terrorism in the states that hillary clinton is referring to them as deterrent enemies and president obama saying they are the jv team brushed back. nobody believes that. that was a 2 1/2 hour forum. i had already credited them as brilliant strategists, as people ii respected as professionals. that was allhe done. there was no congratulations from them and no self awareness
7:14 pm
that they lost the election. they blamed bernie sanders. it is typical of hillary clinton. in hillary clinton's world pis already somebody else's fault. >> one last thing. i'm glad to see this was such an academic discussion. finally, we are going to have jill stein on the program, the green party presidential nominee who is pushing recounts in wisconsin, michigan and pennsylvania. what do you say to her about those efforts?rt >> i t say to her give it up. friends in the clinton campaign had admitted that these recounts willhi not change. hillary clinton gained o a whopping one vote and so i read one article at this pace hillary clinton could change the election results in wisconsin in 74 1/2 years. i don't think the americans will sit around and. wait for that t happen.
7:15 pm
the people have spoken. i have been asked do you accept these election results for jill stein and hillary clinton will you start moving over and let this president-elect and vice president elect getpr on with t business of government? have a peaceful transfer of power? >> i am just astonished how jill stein is the favorite flavor of the left who ignored her and ridiculed and a lot of friends in the media made sure she had no coverage. >> i have to cut you off so i can run the show. >>me it's good to be greige skp admit what you see in front of you. donald trump won 30 306 electoral votes. 2,600 atcounties. it wasn't even close. >> thank you. thank you for your time today. >> thanks, chris. we'll bring in our sunday group to discuss donald trump not, waiting in till he is swor in to start acting like
7:16 pm
president. what do you wantp to ask the panel? go to facebook or twitter. we may use your question on the air. uestion on the air. hi hey you look good. thank you, i feel good. it all starts with eating right. that's why i eat amaz!n prunes now. they're delicious and help keep my body in balance. i love these. sunsweet amaz!n prunes, the feel good fruit. i love that my shop is part of the morning ritual around here. people rely on that first cup and i wouldn't want to mess with that. but when (my) back pain got bad, i couldn't sleep. i had trouble getting there on time. then i found aleve pm. aleve pm is the only one to combine a safe sleep aid plus the 12 hour strength of aleve. for pain relief that can last into the morning. ♪ look up at a new day... hey guys! now i'm back. aleve pm for a better am. mshe said i should think of my rteeth like an apple. it could be great on the outside not so great on the inside. her advice?
7:17 pm
use a toothpaste and mouthwash that strengthens both. go pro with crest pro-health advanced. it's uniquely formulated with activestrength technology to strengthen teeth inside and is better at strengthening the outside than colgate total. crest toothpaste and mouthwash makes my whole mouth feel amazing. advance to healthier gums and stronger teeth from day one. my check-up was great.
7:18 pm
7:19 pm
they it's not presidential to call up these master leaders of business. i think it is very presidential. if it is not presidential it is okay because i like doing it. >> donald trump speaking at the carrier plant in indianapolis this week after working out a deal to keep 1,000 jobs there from moving to mexico. it's time for our sunday group. monica crowley, editor and columnist. fox news political analyst juan williams. lisa laura who covers politics
7:20 pm
and from the wall street journal kimberly. kim, you are a member of the wall street journal editorial board that wrote the editorial that we stocked to kellyanne conway about. this was a powerful symbolic message that president trump will have american workers back and then when he gets into office then he can begin macroeconomic changes like cutting taxes. >> i agree with all of that. i think politically this was very smart. this was a campaign promise he made and fulfilled it. i'm saying economically this is not the way you want torun an economy. we just had a president who for eight years decided to politically allocate capital in the country and pick winners and losers. this is a similar version of this. these companies are not leaving united states because they are
7:21 pm
antiamerican or they want to stick it to indiana. they are following laws of economics. so mr. trump has a choice. he can go from company to empcathousands of them and beat all of them and threaten them or focus on macro economic. >> he is talking about tariffs. he is on a twitter storm this morning and he is talking about that. >> you going to talk about the long term economy and how you keep businesses here there is a real risk here that if you start doing that and saying people aren't going to build businesses in the united states in the first place because they are worried about what they have to do if they want to leave. this is something governors do but the president of the united states has more resources to do bigger policy. >> i want to play another clip from mr. trump's speech at the cincinnati rally on thursday night. >> the era of economic surrender
7:22 pm
is over. we are going to fight for every last american job. it's time to remove the rust from the rust belt and usher in a new industrial revolution. we are going to do it. >> we ask you for questions for the panel and we got this on twitter. for taxpayers is it better for the government to assist businesses? or is it better for the free market to weed out the weak? we should point out all that happened on the same week that the unemployment rate hit a nine-year low. how do you answer steeler slob? >> i want you to use his name. >> well, steeler slob, i think a lot of people in washington would say free market. you see that in reaction to the carrier deal. it wasn't just the wall street editorial board that took issue with it. i think what we are seeing, what
7:23 pm
washington can take away from this decision by mr. trump is that this is a new brand of politics. this is trumpism, not republicanism but trumpism. i think that certainly is sending a bit of a chill up to capitol hill. people don't quite know what they can expect other than something unpredictable. >> i want to turn to another subject i talked about and that was president-elect trump's phone call to foreign leaders especially with the president of taiwan. you heard the question. should he be better briefed? should he be taking the presidential daily brief that most president-elect usually get every day and mike pence is apparentlily getting every day? should he be getting all the briefing he can before he steps into this world of diplomatic nuance? >> he is getting regular briefings from people he trusts.
7:24 pm
he is well briefed before he takes these phone calls. the phone call was congradu congradualatory phone call. i think donald trump was elected not to reinforce the status quo but to challenge the conventional ways of doing things. this conversation donald trump understands china policy very well. there will be plenty of time to discuss the whole range of issues regarding china and the pacific rim once he is swornin. what he also understands it is important for president-elect and president of the united states to stand for freedom and to stand with those who challenge those who would have pressed him and that includes the chinese government. i don't know what his policy will be with regard to china once he is president of the united states. he felt it was important to send a signal that he will take a
7:25 pm
whole new look at the range of issues. >> juan, are you persuaded by monica? is the media making too big a deal of these phone calls? >> no. let me just say i think to his supporters there is not much that donald trump can do at this point that would cause them offense. the idea is that we shouldn't take him literally and acting on a symbolic level whether with carrier or phone calls. in terms of the journalism the intelligence community, the national security community, the diplomatic community here in washington is alarmed by this. we have a one china policy that has been in place since richard nixon. to suddenly go outside of that you mentioned not taking daily briefing but also not consulting with state department about how to prepare to talk if i want to change the policy how do i talk to this person in an effective way. we have seen china file a formal
7:26 pm
complaint about the call. it has had an impact there. it is having an impact in terms of our global relationship and going forward they're questions about what about his business dealings that came up this week? you have ethics people here in washington saying he should make sure that he is totally divested. trump has not agreed to that. when he is meeting with prime minister abe in japan and talking about wind mills near golf courses people are look what is going on here. >> totally overwrought. a lot of this is driven by state department functionaries who are very unhappy that donald trump is not coming to them and they are not being allowed to formulate all american policy. that was what he was elected to do to a certain extent. i think the other point is you have to look at what donald trump says and what he does. to me the far more important message that got sent to the
7:27 pm
world was the appointment of mad dog mattis as secretary of defense. this is a clear eyed general who understands world politics very well and will be a lot tougher than current administration. >> before we end the segment, lisa, you were at this forum at harvard about rehashing the campaign. how ugly did it get? >> it got pretty ugly. i think it is important to talk about what this normally is. it is normally very state affair where campaign managers sip coffee as they discuss their strategy for the historical record. that's not what this was. this felt almost like a collective nervous break down. it wasn't just ugliness between two campaigns. republican campaign managers
7:28 pm
heckled cnn president. nate silver came in for heckling. there was a lot of tension there. i think it really shows how raw these divides still are and certainly sends a little bit of foreboding sign for politics doesn't feel like a lot -- >> are you surprised that the clinton camp is still so bit senator. >> they are extremely bitter. i was talking to people on trump transition, people who served on the campaign. i think they are a little surprised that it remains so raw. the challenge for president-elect donald trump and this was one of his core messages was that he was going to try to unify the country, bring everybody together. i think the most effective way for him to do that is to create a booming economy. if the economy is roaring that will likely silence a lot of critics. when we come back president-elect trump's allies go to court to block vote recounts in three states. we will talk with green party
7:29 pm
presidential nominee dr. jill stein who is pushing the recount effort next. don and i met because i'm a volunteer for meals on wheels. we had an instant connection. what was that? i said, "delivering to you is always a special treat." oh. company, companionship, food... we all need those things. when we get in that spot in life, it's kind of nice to have 'em there.

new plan...same doctor. i'm happy. it's medicare open enrollment. have you compared plans yet? it's easy at or you can call 1-800-medicare. medicare open enrollment. you'll never know unless you go. i did it. you can too. ♪ family road trip! fun! check engine. not fun! but, you've got hum. that's like driving with this guy. all you do is press this, and in plain english, "coolant", you'll know what's wrong. if you do need a mechanic, just press this.

7:31 pm
a look outside the a look outside the beltway of des moines, iowa where president-elect trump is set to take his thank you tour next thursday. the election cycle that seemed like it would never end technically still hasn't. a recount is currently underway in wisconsin with additional challenges in michigan and pennsylvania. joining us now to discuss her push for the recount is green party presidential nominee dr. jill stein. you say your goal here is not to change the results of the election but to ensure the accuracy of the count. my question is why, then, did you choose three states that mr. trump won narrowly but not a state that secretary clinton won
7:32 pm
more narrowly, new new hampshire. >> we didn't go to new hampshire because the deadline had passed. at the time we launched the recount two states had gone from donald trump. michigan was still uncertain as to which direction it would go. as far as i'm concerned if we do find evidence that there is a systemic problem here with the machines which are extremely unreliable, prone to error, human error and machine error as well as hacking and security breaches, if we find evidence that there is a systemic problem we need to expand the recount. that is what american voters are calling for, an election result and a voting system that -- >> let me ask you a question. do you know the largest switch of votes in recounts in american political history? >> i can tell you one in toledo in 2004 there were 90,000 votes that were marked blank which
7:33 pm
were discovered not to be blank at all. and those when a hand recount was done. that would have been enough to change the outcome in ohio. unfortunately, that wasn't found until after the election was already -- >> the biggest actual switch of votes in any election in u.s. history was back in 2000 when roughly 1,200 votes were switched from bush to gore. we're talking about three states, michigan, pennsylvania and wisconsin that donald trump won by more than 10,000 votes. there's not a chance in the world here, dr. stein, that the vote change will -- >> actually, in michigan there are 75,000 votes which are blank which are sky high compared to all other past elections. they are concentrated in detroit. 75,000 votes which may be machine error or human error.
7:34 pm
that is about seven times the margin of difference in michigan. these results could, in fact, change the outcome. we don't know that until we actually examine the evidence. that means a hand recount of the ballot. >> there has never been a 70,000 vote switch. the most there has been is 1,247. >> if the recounts were done in time they could effect 90,000. >> i'm talking about recounts that actually happened, not ones that could have happened. >> that's because we don't do them and we should do them. that's how we ensure that we have a system we can trust. right now as you know chris -- >> let me ask you -- >> running wild. we need to address the fundamental concerns that the american voters are expressing. >> let's talk about what a lot of people think is the real point here and that is let's take a look at how much money
7:35 pm
you raised in your presidential run. in 2012 you raised $893,000. in $20163.5 million but for this recount you raised more than $6.5 million from almost 140,000 donors. isn't that what this is really about? using this recount to raise lots of money and build your list of supporters? >> let's be very clear. this money is going strictly into a segregated account which can only be spent on the recount. so this money is entirely completely used and we'll be lucky if we can cover the cost at the rate that there is a bait and switch going on here. in wisconsin we saw the cost triple. to my mind it really under scores why we need a fundamentally secure voting system that has built in safe guards that should have automatic audits. we need to get rid of the voting
7:36 pm
machines, the electronic touch screens which have been proven highly vulnerable to tampering, hacking, human and machine errors. >> the fact that you have 140,000 donors is purely coincidental? >> the american people made it clear what they want done here. >> where do you get off saying the american people are calling for this? i think the vast majority of the american people think we should accept the result of the election. >> 80% of americans said they were disgusted with this election. >> i don't think it was the system or demand for recount. >> this is a time that people have an entire loss of faith in our political institutions. the way that the money is coming in from small donors makes it very clear. a poll just last week showed to the american people support the
7:37 pm
recount and that they feel that if donald trump was in the reverse position he would be doing exactly the same thing. remember he said it was a rigged system and he was not going to accept the results. you have articulated what many americans feel. it is time to respect the views of the american voter and -- >> donald trump was elected president. you now decided to -- if i may ask my question, dr. stein, you have decided to go to the federal court to try to get a recount in pennsylvania after the state court said that you would have to post a million dollar bond. you are going to hold a news conference tomorrow in front of trump tower. what does he got to do with it? >> we want to hold the conference where america will see that we are standing up for every day americans who do not have confidence in this election
7:38 pm
system, who have lost confidence in our political system. and we are standing up loud and strong to say we will not be intimidated. we will not be frightened by having to jump through these legal hoops. we say what is donald trump frightened of? >> how many votes did you get in this election? >> how many votes did donald trump get? >> he got 62.5 million votes. >> he might have got less votes than hillary clinton. the american people are owed an explanation of what is going on. >> will you answer the question. how many votes did you get? >> i am not going to be the beneficiary of this one way or the other. >> he got 62.5 million votes. the question really is you are speaking for american voters. >> this is not about donald trump. it's not about hillary clinton. it's not about my campaign.
7:39 pm
it's not about gary johnson. this is about american voters who deserve to have a voting system we can trust. when something like 75,000 votes in detroit may be an error because -- why would people come out in detroit fill in all other positions but not vote for president. we deserve to know what is going on. that could change the outcome of the vote. >> in the third presidential debate i asked donald trump whether he would accept the result of the election and the principle of the peaceful transfer of how power. >> what i'm saying is i will tell you at the time. i will keep you in responsuspen >> let me respond. every time donald thinks things are not going in his direction he claims whatever it is rigged against him. >> at that time a lot of liberals heads exploded because donald trump would not accept
7:40 pm
the results of the election. aren't you doing precisely that right now? aren't you doing what hillary clinton called horrifying? >> i am not here to help hillary clinton or to express her point of view. in my view the recount should have happened in the democratic primary where there were suspicious results where voters appeared to be stripped from the roles in brooklyn, where hundreds of thousands of votes went uncounted. this is not about helping democrats and republicans. >> i didn't ask you that. why not accept the results of the election because what you are doing is exactly what hillary clinton said was horrifying? >> i don't care what hillary clinton thinks about this. i care what the voters think about this, not what the politicians or the pundits or the party operatives think. this is about responding to the american voters who are saying we deserve an election system that we can trust and that is accurate, that is secure against
7:41 pm
hacking, against human error, against machine error and the votes are being counted. right now it's not clear that all votes are being counted. we deserve that so we can go forward with an election system that we can trust. >> thank you. thanks for joining us today. up next we bring back the panel. what is next for the democrats after nancy pelosi was reelected to lead her party in the house. what do you think? why are democrats sticking with pelosi despite their election losses? @foxnewssunday and use @foxnewssunday and use the hash tag ♪ (toilet flush) if you need an opioid to manage your chronic pain, you may be sooo constipated it feels like everyone can go

i have a special spring in i have a special spring in my step today because this opportunity is a special one to
7:45 pm
lead the house democrats bring everyone together as we go forward. >> congress woman nancy pelosi reacting to her reelection as house minority leader after beating back a challenge from ohio congressman tim ryan. we are back now with the panel. house democrats have had a bad run under pelosi. let's take a look. after the 2008 election when barack obama won they held 257 seats in the house. but after this election on november 8 they hold 194. that is a loss of 63 seats. how do you explain house democrats putting her back as their leader? >> she is a tremendous fundraiser. in this environment where you just had potentially the first woman for president get defeated on the democratic side i think women on the hill rallied to her support. so much of the base of the party in congress comes from california, west coast and the east coast. so she is there for them. she will do it.
7:46 pm
tim ryan who was running against her from ohio saying he could reach out and do better with blue collar voters. his legislative record is not that distinct. the best argument is you look at pelosi, these are politicians who have suffered defeat after defeat and the decimation of democrats on capitol hill and state governments around the country. another point to be made is the people who vote democratic these days, young people, they voted overwhelmingly to hillary clinton. they don't see it represented ipthis leadership all in their 70s who don't seem to be in touch with the new message. >> so you are saying they did it for the old reasons, the old fashioned inside political reasons but in terms of appealing to the country in the future not so smart. >> and the question is how do you then get this older group
7:47 pm
that has the money because they have to rebuild the party tlmpt is an argument about who is going to run the democratic national committee. the question is how do you rebuild and what is the message. sitting on the sidelines as a journalist i don't see these folks and the ones you want to entrust with that message. >> let me bring you into this conversation. it was clear from this election that house democrats do not have a message that resonates with millions of american voters, millennials, working class, rural. why do you think they kept pelosi? >> part of this is nancy pelosi's failure and for those reasons help solidify her role there. this point one-third of all house democrats hail from just three states in the country, new york, massachusetts and california. everyone that was an opposing voice has been driven out of the party, lost elections because of the very liberal governance of

nancy pelosi and harry reid and barack obama. of course they reelected her because this is what is left of the party is believed nancy pelosi. it was amazing when i listened to the harvard forum the most extraordinary thing was democrats with their heads in the sand about why they lost this. they will not be honest. they believe the media was mean to them and didn't get the message out. they lost because people disagree with their policy. >> let's talk about another potential face to the democratic party and that is front runner to be new chair of democratic national committee congressman keith elson, the first muslim elected to congress. the antidefamation league says a speech made in 2010 in which he basically said u.s. foreign policy is run out of israel, they call that speech, quote, disqualifying. so what does it say that he may be the front runner to be the
7:49 pm
face of the democratic party? >> that is one problematic example. in the past he called for a separate black state in america. he has close ties to care which some argue may be for muslim brotherho brotherhood. he is far out there on the left. the fact that the democratic party is seriously considering him tells you where the party is. this is no longer bill clinton's democratic party. this is barack obama's democratic party. obama has taken the party, moved it from center left all the way to the far left. and it turns out that the coalition that elected him and reelected him was unique to him and that without him on the ticket they suffered massive losses, 2010, 2014 and now 2016. and a big part of this which gets to what we were talking about earlier with the carrier deal and so on is that democrats have ignored, blown off,
7:50 pm
disrespected the working class. these people who came out for donald trump, a lot of them independents and democrats came out for richard nixon in for r reagan, the old reagan democrat. and then democratic party leaves behind barack obama and his leftism, they're going to continue to suffer these kind of elections. >> i want to end this segment by talking about our priest guest, jill stein. lisa, what do you make of the recount effort, what's this all about? >> hillary clinton's campaign did a very expensive assessment of voting irregularities and, you know, the vote in all the states. they investigated every period that people presented to them. they brought in outside academics, technologists, all kinds of people. and they found no evidence of any systemic flaw in the system, whether it's hacking or failed machines or anything like that. so this is very, very, very unlikely no change the results
7:51 pm
for the election. you have to wonder why is jill stein pursuing this so hard. of course the integrity of our elections is important. but i think this is good business for jill stein, even though the money is in a separate account, she compiles a list of supporters that she can say hey, that's what third parties need to build up their brand. on the flipside, donald trump is acting aggressively to stop the recounts. you have to wonder why he's doing that as well given that unlikely to change the outcome. in the words of a disney princess, you wonder why he doesn't just let it go because it sort of feels like -- >> wow, a frozen reference there. that's a first. >> he's creating a certain amount of smoke around it as well that i think could make some people wonder whether there's something real here. you know, they may find some kind of irregularities. it's unlikely to have an impact on who the president is going to be. >> if i could interject, the real answer to your question would be valid access. building a third party, a green party that's stronger.
7:52 pm
she said the money's segregated now. in a separate account. i think what you're going to find is that once we go beyond this, she's going to say you know what, the green party's stronger. it is the voice of people who were bernie sanders supporters on the left and that we are building a structure that will allow us to be a successful. and that would be the first time a successful third party operation in 2020. >> and you know, sending lawyers is one thing, students stop it completely is another. >> i think it would be criminal malpractice for donald trump not to take this incredibly seriously. look, there's one reason jill stein's doing this, she was just on your show for ten minutes. that's more time than on any network. >> we had her during the campaign -- >> to be fair. >> like this is jill stein's moment, she's building for the next presidential election. >> and political malpractice not for donald trump to resist some of this. the whole point -- people say the recount is pointless. the whole point is to delegitimize the election. donald trump is the clear winner. it's trying to sew seeds of
7:53 pm
doubt and create that they can dine out on the next four years. >> come on. >> we have this much section about jill stein and a reference. the only time my granddaughter would have understood anything that was said. thank you panel, see you next sunday. up next, the power player of the week, puppy love. how veterans train therapy dogs are in the process are healing themselves. st want powerful rel. only new alka-seltzer plus free of artificial dyes and preservatives liquid gels delivers the powerful cold symptom relief you need without the unnecessary additives you don't. store manager: clean up, aisle 4. alka-seltzer plus liquid gels. hi hey you look good. thank you, i feel good. it all starts with eating right. that's why i eat amaz!n prunes now. they're delicious and help keep my body in balance. i love these. sunsweet amaz!n prunes, the feel good fruit.

>> he says in teaching the dogs starting as puppies the vets teach themselves, that the world is a safe place. >> these veterans have to challenge their intrusive thoughts. that the dumpster door slam was an ied. no just a dumpster door. >> he recalls one story. >> the patients learning to train this dog has saved my marriage. >> he was a social worker 20 years ago when he brought his job on a job, driving a child to foster care. the crying stopped. >> the 4-month-old golden retriever puppy with a boy petting this dog. >> he uses gabe's 12-year-old son huff for therapy. >> since he was 12 weeks old he started working with folks and he is still doing it today. >> at any one time the
