grand rapids michigan and that is where mr. trump continued. president-elect first high profile meeting of the day was to it sit down with paul ryan. they are working together in washington d.c. starting next month p. they met in midtown manhattan to start out a game plan. >> i enjoyed meeting with the president-elect and talked about the transition and we are excited about hitting the work and getting the country back on track. thank you, guys. >> there was a twist in the
10:03 am
secretary of state sweepsteaks. jennifer griffin reports back to exxon mobile extiler ston. mitt romney's fallen. and rudy guiliani is in a weaker position because he talked so much to the press about wanting to be the top diplomat. last night in des moines mr. trump defended the cabinet picks. he said he wants people who made a fortune on their own. and this morning, top advisor kelli nan conway brushed aside criticism he's putting too many generals in the cabinet room as well. >> i say it is a refreshing rewarding departure from

awarding donors. generals are serious people, steve. they have proven themselves literaly on the battlefield and figuratively with distinguished service in the military and on behalf of the nation. i keep reading is there a quota for tough minded, accomplished people? >> reporter: we are are minutes away in louisiana. and he will be in grand rapids where it is snowing. where he will be joined by the pick to be education secretary. >> we'll be watching. as we wait to wait for the pick for secretary of state. what do his picks tell us? jamie weinstein is host of the
10:05 am
jamie winestein show. welcome to you. jamie, what do you see? what do the cabinet choices tell us about the next president? >> he obviously likes people who are accomplished, generals and top business executives who made a lot of money and he seems to like people who look the part. that's why mitt romney is under consideration. he's straight out of central casting. that is a quote attributed to donald trump. he looks the part of secretary of state. what is interesting, we learned a couple of things. a lot of people projected he would look at those loyal to him and helped him out. but the fact he is looking to mitt romney suggest that he is open to those who are not as supportive of him. and candidates who do not share
10:06 am
his world view. talk of immigration was tough on the trail and the pick for labor secretary is certainly a guy who does not share his ideas on immigration. he's open to those who don't agree with him. that is not a reputation that he cultivated. people thought he would look for only those like him. that's not the case. >> johnathon swain i have looked at your name all day. inserted an extra i. there is a former oon ponent that he's bringing in to audition for the cabinet? >> look, the main thing we need to bear in mind here, and you talk about anyone around donald trump, he understands stage craft. there's probably no person on
10:07 am
the public sphere make reagan or jfk who understand television and how to create images and the scenes in trump tower are to project the image that trump wants. he gets al gore that comes through. and shows the left he's not so scary. you need to separate that from the substance of the people he is appointing. nikki haley was an appointment, but not many people are appointed that were disloyal to trump. >> at the same time he's putting people in his cabinet that disagreed with him. cathy moore rogers is on the list to be secretary of the interior and yet she was tough on him. >> look at the labor secretary, he was not sharing his world are view the way he expressed on the
10:08 am
campaign with immigration. you can look at education secretary. betsy devoswho was on jeb bush education board. pro common core are are and earned the ire of brietbark.com. they did not adopt his agenda in the campaign and yet appointed to positions of high power and loyalist are out in the cold. look at rudy guiliani and chris christie and at great risk to their political careers backed donald trump and they are not the seeing a benefit to that. >> do his appointmentes join the promise of draining the swamp. >> we saw bernie sanders came out today and criticizing on
10:09 am
msnbc, the goldman sach's president is director of the economic council. he has four major donors already in his cabinet. that is more than president bush and president obama had in his cabinet. you got to remember the nationalist popullist base that elected donald trump and briet bart is hardly friendly to wall street. politically he's treading in dangerous territory. >> we mentioned cathy mcmorris rogers and leading contender are to interior secretary. what does she bring to the post? >> it is the stage craft. he's critiqued he didn't have much sdersity. it would bring a woman to the cabinet. and to john's point.
10:10 am
goldman sach's people, donald trump's own rhetoric used to attack tread cruz as a pawn of goldman sachs and now one is running the treasury and another goldman sach, coo into the white house as head of the economic council there and we are are seeing a lot of surprises that maybe the base would not like. but donald trump can do a lot of anything and the base shrugs their shoulders because they trust him. >> he's full of surprising, jamie and john and thanks. >> people will trust him with their tax dollars. and we have new detail and keeping it running and the house passing a bill to fund the government through april of next year. but a push by democrats in the senate threatened to derail that deal. chief congressional correspondent mike has the
10:11 am
details. >> reporter: hi, heather it is a stand off after the government package passed the house of representative and now the senate is threatening a shutdown. chuck schumer and democratic colleagues are meeting to figure out the next move. it would keep the government up and running through next april 28th and extend health benefits for retired coal miners for four if month and the senate democrats want a longer deal. >> democrats care about the min miners. >> and the end game we keep fighting. and i think you will be surprised with the strength they have. >> the house passed the package 326 to 96 yesterday and members have gone home. that vote included 118 house democrats voting in favor and
10:12 am
that is bipartisan as things get these days. and senate majority leader mitch mcconnell said while senate democrats may want to delay. house democrats overwhelmingly rejected that approach. it is worth noting that mcconnell is a coal country senator and he would like to extend health benefits for a year. he's noting that the house is gone, so extend four month and keep the government open. >> it would happen. thank you. it is not all in the republican family when it comes to meetings and conversations. he has sat down with plenty of democrat and even some liberals. divisiveness or unity, howard are kcan urtz with his thoughtses. remembering a hero and icon. and remembering the life and legacy of john glenn.

>> well, perhaps no one has more of the right stuff than john glenn who died yesterday at age 95. in 19skooshgs he became the first american to orbit the earth, sitting behind the murkry seven space capsule as it circled the planet three times under five hours. that accomplished and a life of spectacular achievementes. we see captain gene who joins us on the phone.
10:17 am
our condolences on the loss of your friend. >> heather, thank you for having me. it is not just a pleasure on my part, it is certainly an honor to talk about john. it is ten years after john glenn orbitted the earth that you stepped on to the moon and off of the apollo 17 and dedicated that first step to those who made it possible of course, one of those is john glenn. america lost a hero and you lost a friend. what did john glenn mean to you? >> you called earlier john an icon and trail blazer and he certainly was both of those. but p he was more are than that. he was a great loss to the space program and to our country. when we needed a hero in the '60s, with what i call as the
10:18 am
terrible '60s. al shepherd and john glenn stepped up and fulfilled that role and became the hero we see desperately needed at a time when the country was you know, not in that great of a shape. >> do you remember where you were when that happened on february 20th, 1962? >> i remember almost exactly where i was. i was at 2:00 in the morning or somewhere there abouts and woke up from a solid sleep to watch john maybe for the third or fourth time attempt to go into orbit and that was a great event, just to be there and watch it and know what was happening. this is the thing, "happening
10:19 am
now" was a pretty great feeling. john glenn launching at this moment and in to it space and i am here now and they are great feeli feelings ten years later you launched yourself and landed on the moon. did you two have a conversation about that when you returned? >> well, we talked a little bit. you know john and i, we developed something common he went in earth orbit and i was in the moon. and it was a common ground and talking and sharing and you know, the only reason i was able to go to the moon, and i will never take it for granted is that a guy like john glenn had the guts to go in to earth's
10:20 am
orbit when no one else did it before. if if it was not for john, you and i would not be on the telephone right now. and heather to be able to look back. i didn't even know john when he launched in to space and look back and i can call him a legitimate friend and i think i was that to him as well. a legitimate friend, that is a unique and special honor and i don't take it for granted at all. and john, you know, john didn't just mean a lot to today's generation, i think one of the most important things, he's meant a lot to future generations of our kids. our kids and grandkid.
10:21 am
before we are out of time i want to ask about annie. he said she was a hero. and you know what is it like with the families dealing with on astronauts? >> john's family is one of the closest and dearest things to him. and annie was the epitome of that. he flew with annie and annie was his heart and soul and you could see it any time they were together. people should not forget her contribution to his success. he would not have achieved if not her backing and annie herself. she was unique and special. >> captain, thank you so much. i can feel the pain of the loss
10:22 am
in your heart and as we speak and condolences go out to you and his family as well. and thank you for joining us. >> you're welcome and it is a big loss and don't forget it. loss to the country. >> you are a hero as well. >> it will be tough to make up. there's only one john glenn. >> thank you for joining us. >> thank you, heather, my pleasure and my honor. we'll be right back. hello, i'm an idaho potato farmer and i finally found our big idaho potato truck. it's been touring the country telling folks about our heart healthy idaho potatoes, america's favorite potatoes, and donating to local charities along the way. but now it's finally back home where it belongs. aw man.

people who necessarily don't agree with him. liberals like al gore and leonardo dicrap row. and other leaders show up. and we'll bring howard host of media buzz. thanks for joining us. >> hi, heather. >> i don't know if you listened to the segment that jon was doing and his guest said it was stage craft and smoke and mirrors when leonardo dicaprio and al gore shows up. >> the press always does this with al gore. climate change guy. and comes out and said we had a serious and positive discussion and open to areas of common ground. and talking to mitt romney about a possible cabinet job and
10:27 am
donald trump is talking to president obama and taking his advice on cabinet selections. that is reaching out to the opposition and yet it goes against the narrative that donald trump likes to beat people up on twitter. >> what would it take? is there anything he can do? >> going to change the media narrative? >> i am not sure at this point. part of this is because of things that trump is doing tweeting about boeing and air force contract and another company threatening to move all jobs to mexico. and then the carrier deal. this is a very different style that we are are used to and trump is a sfreet fighter and the media is horrified and it is
10:28 am
one thing to tweet. but they get over the fact that this is a guy who is very different style as the president of the united states. >> he will not quit tweeting. and announcing his nom in aings, going to the people on the thank you, tour. bypassing the media for that. and what is gotten more attention is jennifer paul mary. the communication's director in a hot bed pose saying trump won in part because he appealed to white supremist. it was a divisive campaign, but you know, with trump, it's not like we didn't see it for 18 months. he has a different style. will that work in governing as president? we'll have to see. but there is a little beltway press this is not presidential and the way it is done.
10:29 am
some is putting pressure on companies to get things done. >> he won the election and all of those people who voted for him department like the way it was done. have a great weekend. >> well, a bitter back and forth going on between the clinton and trump camps, as a top clinton aide doubles down on accusations and a trump aide said it is time for the clinton supporters it is time to stop making unsubstanteated allegations. ♪

>> white supremacy and jim comey and fake new and bernie sanders, he had the oddacity to run. and he won 22 state and they never assimulated. and any time i respond or defend myself against the allegations that are now leading to death threat. i try to respond and my guy is a winner and next president of the united states. it is rhetoric that is people who can't admit they lost. it is costing a lot of angst. >> that senior trump advisor firing back at team clinton after clinton's former communication's director accused
10:34 am
donald trump's camp of giving theality- right movement a platform in the election. she said the clinton camp should recognize the reason they lost. voters didn't connect with their candidate. mark larson rnlt and leslie marshal and fox news contributor. also there with us. leslie, what do you think of kelli ann conway's advice should the clinton camp just stop >> no. if they want to, yes. we had a first amendment right to give the opinion. and i do agree that is not the reason the hillary clinton lost. but honestly i don't think she should pay mind to the insults. i get plenty on line and they go away. and move forward and focus on the country.
10:35 am
>> she's gotten death threats because of all of this. >> that is disgusting. i have had death threats and we know a union worker tweeted the other day and that is part of the problem that jennifer is speaking to. the continued divisiveness and vitriollic nature of the country and it is essential that president-elect trump stagged stand up and speak to at this time hate crime and the division. he's promised to unite the country, we need to see that and i would like to see her speak to that as well. >> mark, what do you think of what jennifer and the clinton camp are saying. >> i think jennifer is using a bic light to light the torch and despite what leslie is saying here. her side needs new material. it is always the isms. racism or woman and words mean
10:36 am
things and they have result and consequences. i am concerned as this heats up. both sides should make sure they are not fanning the flames. but the mainstream media and left have not learned from the election. and figured out, even though it is free speech. rhetoric that leads to violence in the street is a concern. activity groups are looking to stir things up. too. and it is a time to be cautious. but don't blame it on the conservative or nondemocrat side happens to be. >> she seems to be be blaming jennifer and white supremist for giving the election to donald trump. there are not enough in michigan and pennsylvania and wisconsin to make him president of the united states, are there? >> i would agree with you, jon. that is not the reason that hillary clinton lost and i said that before. there are a number of reasons.
10:37 am
she did not visit wisconsin or take former bill clinton's advice and care about the disenfranchised white working class voter and that gave it to donald trump. and bernie or bust and african-american that stayed home. the list goes on. but i do think that the red rick to mark's point and rhetoric fanning the flames is out there and that came from the president-elect and he has a responsibility and power to stop it. >> that is old news. >> it sounds like a dodge if those are the reasons that hillary clinton lost the election why not own up to. >> i don't think she's wired to it. maybe needs to go back to chelsea's apartment and get rebooted. it was her body and she thought she was entitled.
10:38 am
and they are having heads explode. that is having a hard time figuring out they lost. the issues didn't match a number of americans that felt disinfranchised. bernie sanders understands that better. he was disinfranchised by the hillary clinton machine. >> you point out. kelli ann conway said bernie sanders supporters were never fully embraced by the clinton come pain and we could get in to the basket of deplorables report. half of the donald trump supporters which is a quarter of those voting in the election are deplorable. that is not necessarily a way to win friends and influence people. >> i don't disagree, john. the numbers don't show that as the reason why she lost. i cited earlier. one was the division within the
10:39 am
democrat party and the differented whys of those willing to move center with hillary clinton and those staying to the left and really didn't want to stop the ref lugz and many of them stayed home and joeted for gary johnson and jill stein. those are the numbers and why she lost. >> she had baggage and a horrible candidate. >> she beat him in the popular election. >> take california and new york out that so what. the constitution matters, lesly. you know that. >> you can't say this is a completely flawed candidate to get that. >> she's a human and mostly flawed. mostly flawed then. you can smile lesly come on. >> i always smile and i will be the first to admit that i and all of us are are flawed. >> amen to that. >> and mark and leslie, good
