3:09 am
senior u.s. official said there were minor disagreements among intelligence officials about the agency's assessment in part because some questions remain unanswered. intelligence agencies do not have specific intelligence showing officials in the kremlin directed the identified individuals to pass the democratic emails to wikileaks. >> so we don't know if it's political. but they did say that intelligence agencies have identified individuals with connections to the russian government who provided wikileaks with those thousands of leaked documents. so they came to that conclusion but then they didn't fully have all the details to make the conclusion. >> that's right. >> so something happened. >> the cia always tried to draw conclusions from incomplete information. you understand that. >> a lot of eno, ma'am must sources. at the same time, it doesn't say they did this in order to -- we can prove they are attempting to elect donald trump. woe know russia has been meddling in our affairs for years. >> everyone should be concerned with that no matter what political affiliation you are aligned

with. not wanting to accept the election results. don't want to accept maybe president-elect trump won because people got out to vote for him. everyone is looking for someone i, talk to actual voters what i have heard back usually not about emails or anything to do with the russians. has to do with them wanting a different direction for this country wanting jobs. that's what i keep going back back to. >> the trump campaign responded to this report. remember "the washington post headlines says secret cia assess wanted says russia was trying to help trump win the white house. they go further in the piece to say they don't have the information to conclude that these are the same people who said saddam hussein had weapons of mass destruction. the election ended a long time ago and one of the biggest electoral college victories in history. time to move on and make america great again. >> the irony of this as well, the same democrats who dismissed mitt romney when he called rush sat big go owe political foe now think russia is the boogie man

behind every corner. manipulating every aspect. he laughed at him and now suddenly they are a serious threat to be taken. >> usually that's what happens when you don't want to see the writing on the wall point fingers at anything else that could be to blame for something. >> i guess when it doesn't happen to you though it's okay. when it does happen to you it's troubling. >> solid life double standard. >> when this does happen to republicans eventually and russian government looks into something. to your point, doesn't matter what side of the political aisle, if the russians are involved in our democratic process, that's a problem. >> because of wikileaks are going to boomerang back at republicans at some point too. >> we do have other headlines to get to as well. starting with this. late last night congress narrowly avoiding another government shutdown after senate democrats caved on a pill to fund the government through april of next year. that bill passed less than an hour to go before the midnight deadline last night. red state democrats were trying to tack on healthcare benefit for retired coal

>> welcome back. well, if you watch other networks or follow the mainstream media you might hear time and time again that donald trump is anti-women. never appointing enough women. war on women headlines. >> h headline is donald trump's cabinet anti-women? that's the "new york times" headline. >> when was that put out? >> december 7th. that was after he had already appointed a number of women to his cabinet. >> indeed. recently, there is additional female appointment to the cabinet which you may have missed. congresswoman from washington, cathy mcmorris rogers who i have gotten to know and work with on capitol hill. very smart, intelligent leader. nominated to be the head of interior. >> this would make number a. nikki hay hay len at the u.n. betsy devos for education. and then linda mcmahon. that makes it five women. so to your point earlier, pete, of all this talk of him having issues with women or does he actually, you know, appreciate them. is he going to bring them
3:18 am
into the fold? i think we are seeing early stages. >> that's right. the press calling him misogynistic and his cabinet was shaping up to be misogynistic if you look at the obama cabinet had six females and so far is he not done picking them there is five in there now. >> those are big time positions. education, interior, to the ambassador to the u.n., these are key people you're going to need to advance policies. he said i want to make a priority. >> it will be interesting to know about the palin angle in all of this too. we heard her name floated for secretary of the interior as well. maybe when she came out last week against his carrier deal saying that was crony capitalism, i wonder if that was. >> or if she was putting her name out there. some people are floating their own name how serious is that if they are actually looking at those people. i don't know. >> i would say it's generally not a good idea to slam the president-elect if you are looking for a job. i'm just going to say. >> write in an opinion piece. >> there is some stuff out there you can speculate
3:19 am
about. that one is sour. >> five women. so faring will at the best person for that job. you can't argue that he is putting in there just because he needs to put a woman somewhere in his cabinet. he is looking at these folks elaine chao for -- i mean for transportation. >> he felt like he has landed on the right individual, male or female, become or white, whatever. he has named it. when he hasn't he has had a more deliberate process. secretary of state. someone trying to find the right person for the right job as opposed to checking a pox. americans don't want female here, minority here, do you know what i mean? the best person there is a nice cross section of america as well. >> a team of rivals in that cabinet, too. not all just yes men and sycophants. nikki haley spoke publicly about it and there she is sitting in his cabinet now. >> we will see more of that to come. >> coming up. rahm emanuel gives a reporter the finger. well, that's one finger.
3:20 am
not that finger. what kind of question do you need to ask to deserve that? >> and remember this atheist group's billboard telling americans to make christmas great again by skipping church? well now christians are responding with a message of their own. it is the battle of the billboards. that is next. ♪ give me no lines ♪ and keep your hands to yourself ♪ ♪ real you shi ne through? introducing otezla (apremilast). ne through? otezla is not an injection or a cream. it's a pill that treats plaque psoriasis differently. with otezla, 75% clearer skin is achievable after just 4 months, with reduced redness, thickness, and scaliness of plaques. and the otezla prescribing information has no requirement for routine lab monitoring. don't take otezla if you are allergic to any of its ingredients. otezla may increase the risk of depression.

>> welcome back on is this saturday morning. quick headlines for you. when hillary clinton canceled $700 million fireworks show the day before the election. donald trump came up with what you call an explosive plan. >> we will offer you five cents on the dollar for the
3:24 am
fireworks. right? they never responded. i thought i could buy the fireworks cheap. >> always a dealmaker, clinton spent nearly $1.2 billion in her losing bid northeasterly twice what mr. trump spent to win. and chicago mayor rahm emanuel giving emphatic no when asked about a potential presidential run in 2020. the former white house chief of staff and mayor of chicago flipping off a consultant twice at a washington steak house when the question came up in the conversation his staff reportedly telling him to tone it down and reminding him there was a female reporter in the room. rahm reportedly shooting back, quote: i don't give a [bleep] who she is. well, that's one way to answer it. >> we're going to start saying merry christmas again. how about all those department stores? they have bells and they have the red walls and they
3:25 am
have the snow, but they don't have merry christmas. i think they're going to start putting up merry christmas. >> president-elect donald trump let the nation know he has no problem wishing everyone a merry christmas. one atheist group has placed billboards in several cities taking a line to the president-elect make christmas great again by skipping church. underline the word christ. here on the billboard battle is nic fish and owner of signs of christmas david johnson. nice to see both of you this morning. nic, why did you guys decide to come up with this billboard? what's the message? >> the message, the primary message here that we want people to know is that in these communities throughout the country, they're not -- if you are an atheist, if you don't believe in all the religious stuff you can still have a great christmas doing all the things that most of us really enjoy doing at christmas. having a meal with friends and family. giving gifts to our friends and giving to charity.
3:26 am
christianity does not have a monopoly on those things. you can have a great time don't need to stick and continue doing things that you don't believe anymore just because there there is societal pressure to do those things. >> david, what was your response when you saw that billboard? >> the first response was i appreciate that they put christmas on the bool board. that was the first motivation we had for signs of christmas is what even christians were not recognizing christmas. was not recognizing the celebration of the birth of jesus christ, so we are appreciative to see anyone christmas. and the second thing that i wanted to say is without the atheists i wouldn't be on fox news right now. so i appreciate the opportunity to get on fox news and promote signs of christmas and to, you know, show respect for people of any belief.
3:27 am
>> those are some of your billboards showing there that had the word christ underlined. ening, your response to that he wouldn't even be here talking about this if you hadn't publicly come out and in this campaign. >> this is what we want to do. we want to start the conversation. that conversation is something that unfortunately isn't happening in nearly enough places in this country. people make the assumption that anybody is just like them. everybody is a christian. that's frankly a dangerous assumption in this country where 40% of people under the age of 30 will nonreligious. 25% of the general population are nonreligious. >> what is your battle though? why do you care how someone spends their holiday? >> he if he would hike to put up billboards that underline christ. he wants to go to church or you want to go to church that's your right. what we want people to know though is they have a choice. the everybody that everybody wants to do the holiday season, when that's hanukkah, whether that's going to church or whether that's celebrating an
3:28 am
atheist christmas, you have that option. >> david, don't people know though that they already have a choice? >> they do. but i like what nic is saying. i think he is right. people should have a choice. and people shouldn't be ridiculed for their choice. and so i support what nic is doing. i also do want to say that churches do great things. and i think nic acknowledges that. and just, for example, i'm in a small church in hampstead, north carolina, and we do amazing things right in our community for teachers, for the schools, we have a share the table ministry. we were first first in for flood relief. >> david, it doesn't sound like you are terribly offended by this then? >> well, you know, interestingly enough, i would like for nic and me to have a conversation about how do we together make christmas great again. and i don't mean that sarcastically. i think we would welcome the opportunity to be shoulder
3:29 am
to shoulder with anyone to support, you know, let's figure out how we can house the homeless and feed the hungry. >> i want to add on so much of this doing charitable works are great and it's something that many of us do, but the thing that needs to be said here is that religion doesn't have a monopoly on those things. >> i agree. i understand that. >> too often because i'm a good christian that shorthand for i'm a good person. and, in fact, that's not true. you can be a good person and be a good christian but you can also be a good person and be an atheist. you can be a good person and not do the religious stuff at christmas. and that's the primary message that we want to get out there. >> we have got to leave it there. >> thank you guys. >> can i make a final. >> get together and have a beer. go out to lunch. sounds like you have a lot more. >> can i make one more final. >> okay, david, quickly. >> just one final point is this thing will probably be posted somewhere on social media and i just encourage
3:30 am
the christians to not show hate towards somebody of an opposing view. >> absolutely. >> use the opportunity to show christian love to anybody and respect. because that's what we ought to show at christmas. >> i love this. magnanimous. >> such agreement here at 6:00 in the morning, right? >> god bless, merry christmas. >> merry christmas. >> happy holidays to everybody. >> trump team slamming the cia's report that russia intervened in the election. the team says it's time to move on. do they have a point? our political panel here to discuss that next. many people would call hillary clinton a hypocrite for condition deming fake news stories. if that's the case, then what would you call brian williams? this morning, is he on a new mission to promote the truth. ♪ ♪ i'm burning, i'm burning ♪ i'm burning for you ♪

>> a new report out this morning says the cia has concluded that russia intervened in the 2016 election to help win the white house. well, team trump firing back at the cia saying, quote: these are the same people that said saddam hussein had weapons of mass destruction. the election ended a long time ago. and one of the biggest electoral victories in history. it's now time to move on and make america great again. here to react is our political panel this morning. julie row again ski, fox news republican strategist.
3:35 am
julie, i'm going to start with you, is this just more sour grapes here? when are we going to stop pointing to someone else for the defeat of hillary clinton. >> i'm surprised to hear, pete that republicans are now saying that russians are great and there is no way heaven forbid that vladimir putin would do anything to destabilize the west. what i think donald trump said is incredibly dangerous. intelligence emanating from the cia is disqualified because of iraq. that's a world view that you can take and that's fine. when president trump has to rely on the cia and on their intelligence assessments to sell a particular foreign policy. those words may come back to bite him. that's something he needs to stop thinking about and part of the perspective. stop thinking as a president who is going to have to govern and use the ci. >> a as a tool. >> this came out of a "the washington post" article. in the article it went on to say there were disagreements among intelligence officials about the assessment. some questions remain unanswered. kremlin, shows some officials inside the kremlin
3:36 am
did not necessarily direct it but may have been associated. so there is some confusion in the intelligence. do you think it's fair the democrats to now be pointing to russia. remember when mitt romney said ignored. >> he was right. >> he was right, right? >> mitt romney was totally right. i will tell you something, what this says is mike pompeo can't take over the cia soon enough. this is a disaster. this is what the people were looking for. hillary clinton didn't lose because of the russians. hillary clinton lost because of two thirds of americans thought she was dishonest. when you look at the exit polls on the throw most important issues of the day, change, the economy, national security. donald trump had significant advantage over her on those issues. and that's why donald trump won. >> aaron, what do you think? >> well, lock, obviously donald trump is going to be leading these agencies so he has to walk a fine line here and doesn't want to undermine the agency. so we do want to see what the results are of the study. it may be that we shouldn't have heard about this investigation until after it
3:37 am
was concluded. >> sure, well, it was leaked. we don't always know why things are leaked to the "the washington post." >> that's true. >> it came alongside the same day that barack obama is saying we're going to investigate these elections and the russian influence in them potentially. >> he obviously needs to be legitimate president. he has to say this didn't really throw off the results of the election. but do you have to walk a really fine line. we do need to know if there was hacking. >> i also want to say i don't think democrats are blaming the russians for why she lost. i think both sides and this doesn't just include democrats, mike mccullough the chairman of the homeland security committee. chairman of the intention committee in the house. lindsey graham, john mccain, i can go on and on. republicans and democrats all agree the russians most likely had something to do with this. the government should release national intelligence estimate as declassified as they can make it to tell us exactly what transpired. this should not be a partisan issue. one day, one day, when crump's behavior they will do the same to him.
3:38 am
>> one day could release emails of the republican rnc. >> no doubt. >> there were disagreements, there is no overall intelligence assessment. they disagreed. barack obama came out two days after the election said there is no evidence of tampering at all. >> barack obama should have taken action long, long ago on the russians and their hacking. i'm not exexcusing barack obama on this. intelligence disagrees whether the russian government or people allied with the russian government. >> which is a big difference, right. >> actually it's not a big difference. somebody who knows something about the russian government and how they behave. just because vladimir putin is not doing this from the kremlin doesn't mean he is not controlling levers associated with him. wikileaks and julian assange said we didn't get this from the russian government. that may be de facto and legally true, that doesn't pass the last test plenty of people. >> doesn't pass the laugh test. >> i believe it's a joke. >> republicans too. >> for the democrats to still be pushing this issue and saying suspects why she
3:39 am
lost. >> i don't think anybody is saying that. >> i'm a democrat. i'm not saying that. >> i get that. >> they are muddying the waters though. >> at the end of the day what they are trying to do similar to what they did to george w. bush in 2000. trying to discredit his presidency. that's what they're trying to do with donald trump. it's going to back fire on the democrats and back fire on them again because you know what? donald trump's numbers have increased significantly since election day. his approval rating now as president-elect. >> talk to mike mccaul, talk to john mccain and lindsey graham. none of them are democrats and all of them agree that the russians most likely had something to do with this and we need to do something about it you keep saying the democrats. >> directly by or orchestrated with frump and the trump white house. >> nobody is suggesting trump is responsible for this. >> plenty of people. >> that's crazy. we have no evidence of that. >> the russians are telling me the segment has got to be over.

4:03 am
talked about probably more than anybody else. somebody very loyal to mr. trump. somebody who publicly acknowledged he wanted this job apparently for the last 10, 12 days behind closed doors he pulled his name out himself. here is what he told o'reilly about that last night. >> on november 29th, and i thought that the president-elect, who my main interest was getting him elected. not getting a job. saving america. i thought there were enough choices, good ones, for him to pick that i wasn't necessarily necessary. if i felt like i was the only one who could do it, probably i would have stayed in. but i thought that he has enough sufficient choices. i can tell you i have tremendous respect for john and i think john and some of the others would be great secretaries of state. if he selects mitt romney i will support mitt romney. but i think i have already said publicly that i thought he had gone too far. it's one thing to have a

just took himself out of can for secretary of state. straightforward and in recognition of where the process is going for that position. >> interesting he told the "new york post" whether or not mr. trump told him hey, you know, you're not going to get this job and then he took his name out and he says that didn't happen. giuliani says i was not -- i wasn't told i was getting it i wasn't told that i was. he just took his name out of contention. he was never presented with the job and he wasn't told he wasn't getting it. >> preble talked behind closed doors and said if you aren't going to get this role how do we handle this so you don't feel embarrassed. this is difficult thing for any family to go through. he did next mitt romney in that interview. is he up there on the top list of names as well. is he saying a really similar thing to newt gingrich and mike huckabee. all the three loyalists. he wasn't just a rival. an enemy someone who attacked your personal character. the question is how much is he going to listen to loyalists in determining who his pick is going to be. >> reports were that rudy
4:06 am
got closer and closer to the president-elect as the process went along. inside confidante. made it clear so i'm told the secretary of state john is the one job he wanted. not dhs or anything else. if that was out of the cards then probably did try to find a diplomatic way to say dismrks he also made that so public from the beginning after he won that he wanted this job. that is the other question, if you want the job. and rumor likely to get it if you make it so public or stay behind closed doors and try to diplomatic figure it out. >> you saw what happened with chris christie. we asked for viewer comments this morning. lisa wrote on twitter sad, but he must not have wanted to do it. he can be an advisor and friend. >> dan on twitter said that's disappointing. he is the only one i would have trusted as secretary of state. >> jeff on email saying i am trusting president-elect's trump judgment in cabinet selection i believe he has america's best interest at heart. a huge change from the last 8 years. >> isn't that the truth? even look at taiwan. even look at the initial approaches that trump has made. there is -- and, who he may pick for his secretary of

that to me was the horrible scenario that i was trying to guard against. >> that could have happened. it's interesting. i remember up until the very end we thought it was very likely that the senate could have gonna way. >> yeah. but that's also -- it's not an admission that actively they were rejecting donald trump. that's what he was doing in that process. you can't just say i'm focusing on the house. if you felt like you were going to benefit from the nominee then you would absorb that as well. that's what he did. you should own up to that fact and say, listen, i made the wrong call. >> cancelled events with him. >> yeah. >> in the wake of the tape that came out and other things. he was very vocal about it. >> absolutely. they are not canceling events anymore. i don't think. as far as we know. >> he has no choice now. >> and the i-you know, the information coming out is that they talk a lot. is that donald trump recognizes that paul ryan is the guy that's going to have to get these through the house and paul ryan recognizes look at the cabinet and policies. what an amazing generational opportunity to get an conservative agenda. >> remarkable that donald

4:18 am
emails made public. now, the rnc has consistently said its networks were never compromised, so there was nothing to be leaked. and throughout the campaign and again yesterday, president-elect donald trump has dismissed the intelligence community's findings that russia is responsible for the cyber attacks. in a statement, his transition team went right after the intelligence community, saying these are the same people that said saddam hussein had weapons of mass destruction. the election ended a long time ago in one of the biggest electoral college victories in history. it's now time to move on and make america great again. all of this comes after the white house announced yesterday that president obama has ordered a full review of the hacking that took place in the election, which he wants completed before he leaves office. republicans are criticizing that move though saying the white house is simply trying to give some political cover to hillary clinton for losing the race. an assertion the administration denies.

>> this is not an effort to challenge the outcome of the election. worry not calling into question the election results, we are taking seriously our responsibility to protect the integrity of those elections. >> the white house went on to say that this review will extend beyond this past election to lock at cyber attacks on the u.s.' political system as a whole and it says it wants to have that report ready for the next administration to be able to take action. back to y'all. >> all right. thank you, garrett. >> we were talking about this earlier this morning. i do think there is a general concern regardless of where you fall politically about hacking and about what russia can do in terms of getting into our systems and our emails and everything else this time it was democrats. who knows it could be republicans. this effects everyone across the board. >> or could be national security. looking at dnc emails or rnc emails who cares. looking at national security emails, looking at cia itself. >> there are so many dedicated professionals at the cia and elsewhere. never want to impugn their

sympathetic. he promised us that he would end sanctuary cities. he promised us that he would build a wall and stop the flood of illegal immigrants. the joke was that the closer hillary came to winning the election, there were as many illegals coming over the border as there were gun sales in the united states. i'm not trying to make a parallel to that but it was kind of funny. but the bottom line was he is a very compassionate guy. when you talk to him in person, he looks you in the eye. when he tells you something, i believe that. it's pretty credible. >> we are learning that oakland has asked the governor's office in california because they already have laws in the books there in oakland which bar law enforcement from doing immigration raids and basically deporting any illegal immigrants. they are asking the governor's office to make
4:27 am
california now a sanctuary state. when you heard that, what did you think? >> you know, i think it's a last move of desperation for the open borders sanctuary city people i think if you look at the data, probably 70% of the united states do not want sanctuary cities. so, i think it's just, you know, publicity. it's not going to happen. i think the thing that disturbs me the most though is that the district attorney in los angeles is not willing to give the cali gang data base to the federal government. and what that is, basically, is it's the data that they have been accumulating over the past 10 years of gang members. >> happened to your daughter, ray? >ray? ray, are you able to hear
4:28 am
me? >> yes. >> you can tell us the story? what happened to your daughter? >> >> well, her and her friend were just out, you know, getting a pack of gum at 10:00 at night. and she was rear ended by a young man who was an illegal immigrant who had several other violations in the tide water area and released. he had a fake florida drivers license. he had absolutely no insurance. he was three times the legal limit of alcohol abuse. and the speed limit on the boulevard was 45 miles per hour. the girls were sitting at a stoplight just chatting and liiving to the radio. and he hit them from behind at 75 miles per hour and killed them immediately. >> what would you want people who are supportive of sanctuary cities to know this morning? >> well, i would have to say
4:29 am
that the real, the real impact is the story that i just told you. it happens every day. they worry more splitting their families up they talk a lot about tearing up families. but the people who are victims of illegal immigrant crimes i can't describe how it tears up our families. i mean, in the case of sanctuary cities, if someone is deported, i know, the families are separated. but ultimately, no one dies. >> right. >> in our case, we have funerals. and we never get to see our family again. so i don't see how you can compare the two. and i think the ledge lay legis,
4:30 am
the people have not been the victim of illegal immigrant crimes. >> no one feels the pain like you do. thank you so much for sharing your story. >> any time. >> coming up here on the show, general outrage from the left over some of the president-elect's cabinet picks. >> three generals so far is that too many generals? >> people have been, you know, mired in controversy about the number of generals. >> but isn't having generals a good thing? our military panel here to discuss. that's next. >> and drama behind the scenes of "duck dynasty." why two producers were just fired and sued. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ i want a hippopotamus for christmas ♪

4:35 am
>> strong words from the president-elect. outrage on the left as donald trump turns to top military brass for key cabinet roles. >> the president-elect intends to nominate general john kelly to lead homeland security. three generals so far. is that too many generals? >> people have been mired in controversy about the number of generals that donald trump seems to be attracted to. i'm getting a lot of heart burn, wolf, over the fact that he is populating other key positions in the cabinet with other generals. that raises further question about whether there's really going to be civilian leadership. >> the president-elect so far recruiting three retired generals. he may want as many as five. but why isn't this a good thing? let's bring in our distinguished military panel retired lie lulu tenant general boykin. johnny jones and retired colonel tony shaffer. general, i will start with you. throw generals so far. maybe more. any reason for concern about
4:36 am
the military civilian oversight? >> well, you know, pete, think about the fact that barack obama had three generals right out of the chute in his administration. denny blair at dni. he had rick sem shreky at the veterans affairs and jim jones as national security advisor. there was never a complaint. look, being a retired general, having a successful military career should not be a penalty. remember that these people are civilians now. so, you know, i think that this whole thing is just a lot to do over nothing. >> colonel shaffer, to his point, is it just generals or is it the wrong generals from the left? as he pointed out, there were throw generals at the beginning for barack obama. if any general who is competent. look, this is the end of the high school debate team being in charge of national security. the current crew ben rhodes completely incompetent. they have been the stewards of the bad foreign policy.
4:37 am
jeh johnson at dhs is a freaking lawyer for goodness sake. look what's going on dod with ash carter. is a career bureaucrat. what has to be done is clear. they have to repair the past 8 years of neglect, malfeasance and incompetence. so you have got to bring in people who actually have an understanding of the issues. who have studied them their entire life and frankly these are the right generals at the right time as general boynton pointed out they are retired. they are like us. they have the right to be employed. kudos to mr. trump for hiring veterans. >> staff sergeant, as someone who has walked the ground, what does it say to the ground pounder that this president is choosing war fighters like this at the top? >> well, you know, it says everything. general mattis, specifically, when that secretary of defense has to make some tough decisions the men and women on the ground will know he has fought for them all the way to the end. if it's a tough decision they will believe in that decision. morale is huge when it comes to winning a war. morale is huge when it comes
4:38 am
to securing this country. the general specifically that have been chosen so far, general kelly has given everything to this country. we're talking about generals who have spent 20 to 30 years in active combat and understand the cost of war and the cost of securing this country. they haven't, you know, this is 2016, we have been at war for 15, 16 years. and, you know, if you count the late 90s, some of the generals have been operational for most of their career. that's important. they have experience. when you talk about draining the swamp, where else can you go to find a nonpolitical person that's competent in these roles. i think these are amazing picks. and absolutely, i think when you just have to have something to argue about, argue about what they did in their past career. >> great points. unfortunately, we have to leave it right there. there is also reports out this morning that the pelc is drawing up stronger plans, pulling power away from the white house to the pentagon to execute the fight against isis. i think something all of us can agree, less politicians and speech writers and more generals and operators involved in the process.
4:39 am
>> i agree. >> you gentlemen, thank you very much for your expertise. we will talk to you all he again very soon. >> take care. >> now headlines from abby huntsman. >> thank you, pete. the pilot of a deadly hot air balloon in texas had seven different drugs in his system at the time of that accident. medical experts testifying to the ntsb that alfred were nichols was prescribed to at least a dozen medications valium, oxycontin and ritalin. it should have prevented him from flying. he hit power lines and crashing killing himself and 15 other people. so sad. well, "duck dynasty" producers are fired and now the tv hit show, they are in hot water from bosses. fired now facing a lawsuit from its parent company apparently. >> you can't always get what you want. but sometimes you get what you need. mcmillen needed his tail whooped in a lawn mower

the garden diner cafe in grand rapids, michigan closing up shop after operating without any managers and letting employees making their other decision while paying quote livable wage. waiting 40 minutes for a vegan sandwich. no surprise that restaurant did not last very long. is now closed up. >> vegan sandwiches don't taste as good when you get them in three seconds let alone 40 minutes. wait 40 minutes for a vegan sandwich. >> i have never ordered one. >> starting today. >> yeah. exactly. we is a nice crowd out here. everybody saying it's a little bit chilly. are you a chilly. >> it's a little chilly. >> she is worried about the wind chill out here. >> not that much wind but certainly chilly. 30 degrees right here at least according to the thermometer across the street. take a look at the weather maps. officially 29 in new york. cold air is up across the far northern plains. one right now in rapids city. four in minneapolis. it is windy along with in the northern plains. so the wind chills are in

remember nbc reporter brian williams who was fired for reporting false news stories during his time in iraq. well, now he is on a new mission to warn people of the dangers of fake news. i kid you not. take a look. >> flynn's son was fired by the trump transition today for passing on fake news stories via twitter. but his dad, the retired army three star general has passed on some gems himself. here are a few. clinton is involved with child sex trafficking and has secretly waged war on the catholic church as well as charges that the president is a jihadi hole
4:47 am
laundered money for muslim terrorists. as we talked about here last night, fake news played a role in this election and continues to find a wide audience. >> joining us now to react is "new york post" washington bureau chief danielle halper. thanks for being here. >> thank you. >> he wasn't fired he was suspended and on msnbc.watch thy word that comes to my mind is irony. >> definition of irony. this is the guy who got suspended as you say and lost his job because he was the host of nightly news on nbc which he no longer is because he is spread fake news. he lied about his time in iraq saying he came under heavy enemy fire which he didn't. saying he almost lost his life. he also lied about covering hurricane katrina saying he saw dead bodies floating in the streets there was no evidence support any of that more things nbc never actually released the report which detailed their internal report which
4:48 am
detailed all of his transgressions. instead they just demoted him and put him on the middle of the night show on msnbc. it's really stuny that this is the guy who is lecturing people about fake news. it's hard to take him very seriously at all. >> the left has been wanting to point out that one of the reasons that trump won was because of fake news and that the sharing that on social media really really did hillary clinton in. do you buy that argument? >> well, look, i don't know. my mom, she hardly ever took me to the grocery store because it was a pain in the neck to bring three boys to the grocery store. when we did go, i remember going to the checkout line and there was all these tabloids a lot of them spreading news that wasn't real. or that wasn't believable and that wasn't verified. and so this idea of fake news, it's not exactly new. this has been around for a long time. it strikes -- it's more about people that are interested in reading about these things or about these fantasies. about these things. they want to be true. than it is about this
4:49 am
problem. this problem has been around for a long time there are such things as verified news as brian williams, you know, himself is the purveyor of. it's hard to take it seriously it suede the election. really there is no proof for it except in these people's imagination. >> where then does this end? because fake news and false stories, as you have said, have been around for a while. this concerted effort by the left. from him you heard hillary clinton talk about it from the podium yesterday. fake news is a threat to our democracy. how far do they want to go and what could it mean for free speech? >> well, they want to ban it, right? so what does that mean? of course, there is, again, there is fake news. there is a problem. and that should be considered. but their end is to ban it. and that i think, is the problem. because once they start banning news outlets from publishing. i think that's obviously very serious first amendment issue. and it's a slippery slope. who knows where they take it from there. >> daniel, great to see you this morning, appreciate it very much. in those tabloids they did

5:04 am
mr. mayor, good to see you. >> good morning. how are you? >> we learned over the past few days that you had taken your name out of the running. >> i did. >> for secretary of state. but that happened weeks ago. we didn't know about it. >> november 28th, i think. november 28th. i decided that first of all i'm very happy in what i do. a lot of people say that. they don't mean it. i do. >> what do you do. >> i run a security company all over the world as you know. that's one of the issues. pause i did a lot of work for 10 different governments. still do. and i also run part of a law firm that does cyber security, which is a passion of mine. and i run a cyber security practice. so, when someone said to me you are going to travel a lot as secretary of state. i showed them my travel schedule i said no, probably less. he had good choices. my objective in joining the campaign was never to get a job. it was the last thing in my mind. it was for my country. i didn't want to see this country slip into socialism. i didn't want to see us
5:05 am
become some kind of european second rate country. i thought that's where we were headed. and i thought only donald trump could stop us. also i knew him for 28 years. is he a close, personal friend. and i knew what america is now finding out what a great president he could become. >> yeah. >> so i did it with a great deal of passion. and the idea secretary of state sort of entered my mind toward the end. when i thought about and it i saw the choices that he had and the difficult position he was in because of his loyalty to me and friendship, best thing for me is to take myself out of it. >> was that a difficult thing to do? >> a little bit but not that difficult. because i kne choices. if i thought he didn't have a great choice, and thought he needed only me, which is probably never true that they need only you. but if i thought that i would do it in a minute. >> there are a lot of names in the mix, including rex tillerson. >> i think rex tillerson is an excellent choice. i think josh bolten -- had i
5:06 am
been president in 2008, i probably would have appointed him as secretary of state. i mean, josh bolten is superior. i think mitt romney, i mean, i voted for him, i supported him. i thought he would have been a much better president than barack obama. i do think like mike huckabee does he should apologize or at least he should explain what he meant by some of the comments that hurt me greatly when i was campaigning for my friend donald trump. i think actually donald is less troubled by it than all. >> other people are angry about it. >> like sometimes your wife gets angrier when someone assaults you and you get over it. >> president bush said i have been the son of a president and the president myself. it's much harder to be the son of a president. you take it so personally. you mentioned being hurt by this. >> i was hurt by what mitt did. i supported mitt maybe not as much as i did donald. but i sur gaited for him auto times. i introduced him to people. i helped to raise money for
5:07 am
him. i was deeply involved in his campaign. is he wasn't like sitting out on the sidelines like jeb bush and a few others who i didn't like either. i thought they should have been. at least they weren't putting out some really terrible things that he said about them. >> were you worried at all about the -- you mentioned off the top here that that could have been a concern working with 10 governments like you have. and your cyber security role. would that have been a problem? >> no. actually what i did was, before i dropped out, i had myself completely vetted. i set vet me for the job. i don't know, just in case you want to use me for a mission five years from now or two years from now or three years from now. i was completely vetted. i passed 100 percent. not a single -- the mistake that the media made was, they thought i represented these governments in washington. i didn't. i did work for them. for example, the other night i got an award from the brazillian government for reducing crime by 48%. they had a dinner at the brazilian embassy in
5:08 am
washington for 2800 people. that's the kind of work i do. i do crime reduction, terrorist reduction. that's the kind of work i do. >> why did you wait two weeks to come out. >> for good reason. >> you everywhere behind closed doors making this decision. >> because i didn't want to put the campaign requested that we withhold it. plus they didn't accept it immediately. they said they wanted to keep me in the running. i said i don't want to be but they said they wanted to keep me in the running. so we agreed that i will wait until you are ready. when you're ready, then we can announce it. >> business interests or connections have, you know, were reported that that might be a complication for you. >> not only that i checked with several key members of the senate republican and democrat, and i think i. >> on that rex tillerson, exxon mobil ceo his name has risen to the top. is he an international businessman, do you think that helps him? >> what are we going to do appoint people who don't know the world.
5:09 am
appoint the guy agri phobia find a guy stays home all the time. never been anywhere. figure out where china is on the map and make him secretary of state. who are you going to appoint to a job secretary of state except somebody who knows the world that qualification i have. >> you mentioned general petraeus' name is in the mix, also. you mentioned you watched the segment earlier about generals. >> i should not have left him out. general petraeus i would trust with anything. i wouldn't care if they said i had 10 generals in the cabinet. also this thing about generals gets me really angry. when it becomes a liability that you are a general officer of the united states army in this country, then there is something wrong with the left wing of this country. i think obama appointed three generals. i don't know what's three and five. not much. generals have very differing opinions. if you have ever dealt with them. and i have. when they get out. they get very differing opinions. most of them are probably a little bit more right. but i know some that are way off on the left. >> let's talk about some of

the people that have been controversial -- >> -- by the way, donald trump has appointed more women than barack obama. >> we were talking about that earlier. >> why is that not the headline. >> talking about five. the "new york times" just throw days ago saying is donald trump's cabinet misogynistic. [ laughter ] because we have too many women? can i ask you about gathercoen. >> sure. >> 59 years old. white house economic council. this comes despite the president-elect's slamming of wall street during the campaign. he of course from goldman sachs. >> right. >> he mentioned that this is the problem with the power structure in this country. run by wall street. and then he puts gary cohen on there. any problems with that selection, do you think? >> no. franklin roosevelt, if i recall this story correctly, selected joseph kennedy as the first head of the sec. joseph kennedy had made a fortune and they had just
5:11 am
put together the securities -- he appointed him because somebody who understands the industry will understand how to regulate it best. and blamp else you think of joseph kennedy he established the sec and i did a lot of prosecutions with him. again, who are you going to appoint to oversee financial institutions than someone who knows about financial institutions? you going to go appoint some person who a techy who knows all about computers but not about financial institutions. the kind of forecast they want to put together would be business. in a business, you put the people with skills here, here, and here. they are going to have those prior skills. the question is what's their motivation? the best people for me on the securities prosecutions that i did and i did a lot of them. you might remember. boski, wall street won. that's the better movie because it's about me. wall street one.
5:12 am
the people who did it for me were people who came out of wall street. they were prosecuting the criminals in wall street. the idea that everybody in wall street is tainted is just lick everybody in the army is tainted. that's absurd. 95, 99% of wall street straight guys, straight women, they are the best ones to straighten it out. >> i do want to ask you this before we let you go. you do have loyalists out there who want to see new this admission. you have said no to any cabinet administration. is there any role that you would consider maybe within the white house or ambassadorship? >> should very a commissioner of golf? i don't know. i have always wanted that. >> a golf czar? >> no czars in this administration. >> i never liked the hear czars. i think president reagan came one a drug czar. i advised against it i was associate attorney general then. i put do you know what happened to the last czar they chopped his head off. >> they did. >> will you stick around for us? >> sure, i would love to. >> keep our viewers sending in questions. send us in your emails this

5:15 am
don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily ...and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis the right treatment for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you. this is your daughter. and she just got this. ooh boy. but, you've got hum. so you can set this. and if she drives like this, you can tell her to drive more like this. because you'll get this. you can even set boundaries for so if she should be here, but instead goes here, here, or here. you'll know. so don't worry, mom. because you put this, in here.

5:35 am
different news over the years on your websites and so forth. what do you make of hillary clinton's comment on fak news? we will play that and get your response. >> yeah. >> the epidemic of militia fake news and false propaganda that flooded social media over the past year, it's now clear that so-called fake news can have real world consequences. this isn't about politics or partisanship. lives are at risk. it's a danger that must be addressed and addressed quickly. bipartisan legislation is making its way through congress to boost the government's response to foreign propaganda and silicon valley is starting to grapple with the challenge and threat of fake news. >> so michelle, legislation to combat fake news. what do you make of that? >> yeah. well, that's max of the very kind of quote, unquote, fascism that all of these trump bashers have been decrying since the election.
5:36 am
i would file that speech under hutzpah on stilts because the world's foremost fake news provider, hillary clinton miss fake blame a youtube video on benghazi having the sanctity money to lecture anybody else about false information and the consequences, bloody consequences thereof is really occupying a bubble of unreality. but what we have here, of course, is atactic. and it's a tactic that i have experienced for the last 25 years. >> right. you were speaking out about this, michelle, right, since the early 1990s? >> yes. that's exactly right, abby. because as someone who has had a foot in old media and new media, it's clear that these people are threatened by alternative news sources that are taking away and diminishing their power. that certainly was a referendum of this past election. it wasn't just a referendum
5:37 am
on establishment politics. it was a referendum on establishment media. >> yes. >> and these people lost. >> michelle, how far would these people go if they could with this fake news idea and suppressing voices they don't want to hear? >> well, look, we just had 8 years of an obama administration where there were witch hunts against ideological enemies and certainly even members of the press who were targeted. you know, ask some people who, you know, have been independent bloggers about how they have been% cutted and even prosecuted. and this is why we are doing what we are doing at crtv.com where i have a new investigative show. yeah, we are actually committing real journalism. that's why i'm here in oklahoma covering a case of a former police officer who was witch-hunted by a social justice mob and nobody here in the local media wants to talk about it being an independent journalist which, yes, there are going to be smeared as being a purveyor of quote, unquote,
5:38 am
fake news because it's real news, you're asking questions that make people uncomfortable. and that's what hillary clinton and her minions want to marginalize. >> we like comfort. you know, that's the reason, michelle. >> yes. yes. >> things are getting a little uncomfortable right now at the energy department because of a new questionnaire that is causing the liberal media to freak out. i'm going to put up some headlines about this questionnaire being sent around by the trump transition team to the energy department workers asking them, you know, about climate and climate change. trump's team demands fuel fear of energy department witch-hunt. trump team memo on climate change alarms energy department staff. if they've ever gone to climate change. conferences they have to ask those types of questions. what do you make of this? >> look at that the snowflakes and butter cups up in arms because trump won. and he has the prerogative and privilege of making sure that people work for him actually agree with his views. this gives me a lot of
5:39 am
comfort because, of course, when donald trump was meeting with al gore, some among the common sense free market environmental movementy a little bit worried. they are putting the pedal to the metal. i wrote culture of corruption in 2009 that the obama administration itself was very responsible for kicking people out, foirg them, pushing out people who dared to air any dissent on the climate change issue. ask alan carlan a senior e.p.a. mustled because he was drawing attention to the outdated data that the liberal e.p.a. wassousing to justify massive regulations that would cause businesses and taxpayers huge amounts of money. >> yeah, in any department. that's what the bureaucracy counts on is the long-term staff, whether they agree with who is in charge a few appointees or not. the ability to subvert things they don't agree with
5:40 am
is this type of thing common and should it be used more widely? >> of course it is. i mean, if you can't ideologically vet your own administration, what's the point of winning? i certainly hope that they are doing this with every single agency and every nook and cranny of the obama administration to drain that swamp. >> yeah. you wonder if this is even done in this administration. it would never be reported on. people wouldn't be angry about it. >> no. because unfortunately, michelle, as you know, people take the bureaucracy and the fourth branch of government that's become our bureaucracy in some ways become lock step with the democratic party. believing in more government. that becomes a long-term problem. >> only a few hundred people are replaced at these jobs. thousands and thousands that actually stay there for life. it would be good to know. >> that's right. you have got these entrenched civil servants the ones in charge of policy instead of the president himself. and now things are going to change and they are not happy about it. >> and you are smiling. >> michelle, good to see you this morning. thanks for being with us.

i'm hall of famer jerry west and my life is basketball. but that doesn't stop my afib from leaving me at a higher risk of stroke. that'd be devastating. i took warfarin for over 15 years until i learned more about once-daily xarelto... a latest generation blood thinner. then i made the switch. xarelto® significantly lowers the risk of stroke in people with afib not caused by a heart valve problem.
5:43 am
it has similar effectiveness to warfarin. warfarin interferes with vitamin k and at least six blood clotting factors. xarelto® is selective targeting one critical factor . . . . in reducing the risk of stroke. like all blood thinners, don't stop taking xarelto without talking to your doctor, as this may increase your risk of a blood clot or stroke. while taking you may bruise more easily, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop. xarelto may increase your risk of bleeding if you take certain medicines. xarelto can cause serious, and in rare cases fatal bleeding. get help right away for unexpected bleeding, unusual bruising or tingling. if you have had spinal anesthesia while on xarelto watch for back pain or any nerve or muscle related signs or symptoms. do not take xarelto if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. tell your doctor before all planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. to help protect yourself from a stroke,
5:44 am
ask your doctor about xarelto. there's more to know. xarelto. well, are parts of the world really afraid of our next president? here are some of the recent headlines from different media outlets that pushes the narrative that people are terrified of what trump's america means. just take a look at those all over the place. but our next guest thinks that might be and is a good

thing. joining us with his take is dr. sebastian gorka, a professor of strategy and irregular warfare at the institute of world politics and author of the great book "defeatin defeating jihad." thanks for joining me. >> you think fear is a good thing. >> let me quote mad dog mattis who made the first motto kind of his personal label we will be no better friend to our friends and no worse enemy to our enemies. in the last eight years, the world has gone ablaze. wherever you look. whether it's asia with china building these fake islands. whether it's russia invading its neighbors. whether it's the rise of isis. the fact is the world is ablaze, thanks to a lack of american leadership. january 20th, new sheriff in town, peter. if you listen to global elites or internationalists or foreign intelligence intelligence but russia, taiwan, nato. he doesn't know what he is

doing. what do you say to them. >> this is the same liberal elite that still doesn't understand what happened a month ago. they have noddy. they are cacooned in this bubble and in false narratives. somebody who lives in that national security world and talks to these people from other countries there is such a relief because our allies and our partners understand that after eight years of being dissed, after eight years of their interests being undermined from the lead from behind obama mantra, now our friends will be helped. the enemies are the only people who will be afraid. and, peter, that's a good thing. >> well, it is a good thing. the other thing they have derided a little bit is america first mantra. does that mean you are abandoning the world? what do you say to those critics? >> who else should be first? should it be nort north korea? should it be iran. >> global citizenship. >> what's on your passport, peter? is it american eagle or is it the flag of the republic of iran. >> yeah, the eagle. >> the eagle. so are you an american?
5:47 am
>> yes, sir. >> do we have interests? >> indeed. >> should we protect them? >> think so. >> that's mr. trump. [ laughter ] but the world reacts to that and says, you know, will he be belligerent? he is going to fight isis? how will he do so? that uncertainty, how does he use that to his ad vantage? >> in every war you have to exploit uncertainty. we don't telegraph what we do in advance. bill clinton did this in the balkanss, do you remember? no boots on the ground what did m dual exploited. we are not going to do x or y. then your enemy just reassess what is they have to do and exploits that telegraphing. we are not going to do that. the fact is we have an individual who said repeatedly, let's have -- let's cool our jets a little bit. mr. trump has said and mr. flynn, general flynn, we're not going to make enemies needlessly. okay? no new enemies. that's not logical. but where our interests are being damaged. we're going to step up to the plate. >> interesting. so he will be stepping up to

morning. >> look at those guys. >> those are little penguins. little helpers. can't hold much on their flappers. flappers? flipper? >> flipper, flapper. >> who's going to tell? >> "fox & friends" hour four starts right now. ♪ so we don't have penguins onset here at "fox & friends," but we do have a bunch of golden doodl doodles. the reason is fox news alert, there may be a first dog. and it could be a golden doodle. >> maybe a first dog that could be a golden doodle. there's speculation that barron likes golden doodles. >> a golden retreeiever and pooe mix. >> clearly i know nothing about
6:02 am
dogs. >> that's the dog they may end up adopting. i think he has to go through the transition team in order to get him out. >> they've genetically modified them to not shed and hypoallergenic. >> you know, humans are brilliant. love that. >> i'm sure they have a price tag. we're going to talk about the cabinet and where things are shaping up for donald trump's transition team. and all eyes have been on the secretary of state position. well, we learned overnight and then rudy giuliani, america's mayor on our shet just a short time ago explaining his decision why he dropped out or took his name out of the running for secretary of state. listen. >> he had good choices. my objective in joining the campaign was never to get a job. it was the last thing in my mind. it was for my country. i didn't want to see this country slip into socialism. i didn't want to see us become some kind of european second rate country. i thought that's where we were headed. and i thought only donald trump
6:03 am
could stop us. also i knew him for 28 years, he's a close personal friend. and i knew what america is now finding out what a great president he could become. so i did it with a great deal of passion. and the idea of secretary of state sort of entered my mind toward the end. when i thought about it and saw the choices he had and the difficult position he was in because of his loyalty to me and friendship, i said best thing to me is take myself out of it. and there was no other job -- >> was that a difficult thing to do? >> a little bit, but not that difficult because i knew he had good choices. if i thought he didn't have a great choice and thought he needed only me, which is probably never true they need only you, but if i thought that, i would do it in a minute. >> there you go. >> he did say if there was like a golf position in the administration. >> let's bring in that voice you hear. the great geraldo rivera joining us this morning. >> does the golden doodle have webbed feet? that's key. if he doesn't have webbed feet, because i made a lab and a pug, and the dog i got was grotesque
6:04 am
and lovable but did not have webbed feet. >> did you call it a lug? >> why not? >> we're going to -- i would love to talk about dogs all morning, but i want to talk about the cabinet picks. you heard mayor rudy giuliani talk about his reasoning for taking his name out of the running. what do you think the story is here? >> well, i don't know, i like mayor giuliani very much. i've known him for years since he was a prosecutor in the southern district. i think in my opinion, and i don't portend to any inside information, i think the mayor got too hyperpartisan in terms of his demeanor change from being america's mayor, appealing broadly, to being if you remember the republican national convention and some of the appearances in the campaign he was so fervent and so emotional and big-eyed and different than he had been in public life. and i just didn't have the -- and, again, i love the guy, but the gravitas seemed to me, the
6:05 am
dig ani the gravitas seemed to me, the dig anty that mitt romney does have, i think the same as mayor giuliani, he was so fervent in his opposition to donald trump that i think both of them kind of excluded themselves. >> rudy was a loyalist. >> too loyalist. >> but many, some have suggested why are the loyalists not there in the cabinet. do you think that hurt him at the end is what you're saying? >> i do. i really do. and i think it's tarnished general flynn also. i think if he were to be facing a senate confirmation at national security advisor, he'd have a very, very rough time of it. i just think trump is transitioning into the statesman. now he still has the ferve, the reverence, the twitter account, he's going to be very different stylistically, but i think what he's trying to do is surround himself with people who've been in government who have international reputation who is are not controversial, you know,
6:06 am
the oklahoma a.g. aside who are -- and i guess the labor secretary designate also, but it seems to me this is a cabinet that appeals to real traditional conservative republicans in a way that it would reflect a reagan cabinet or a nixon cabinet. i think that it's a very traditional conservative cabinet. >> because it's interesting, i mean, we know how much he does value loyalty. but you look at some of them who've been the most loyal to him, newt gingrich, mike huckabee or mayor giuliani, and he's making it clear that just because you are loyal to me doesn't mean you're automatically going to get the job you want. i'm looking for the best person for that role. and i think some people see that as refreshing. >> trump and i -- i've known the president-elect for a long time. he does value loyalty. and he extends friendship and warmth in a way that is very, very personal. and you appreciate it. i got a note last night, you
6:07 am
know, i wrote back immediately and said -- >> from mr. trump. >> how excited erica, my wife, and our 11-year-old was to hear from you, mr. president-elect. but that's different. who he invites to his parties or the inauguration or he likes to hang out with or he has a warm feeling for, i think is different. he's a businessman. and i think he's going to run this administration -- he's going to be ceo of america. the whole thing about "celebrity apprentice" so interesting having been on the final cast of "celebrity apprentice," wrapped taping in march of 2015, obviously he had decided but hadn't announced it, he's going to handle the presidency as "celebrity apprentice" times 1,000, times a million. he ran it in a business like way. he was flamboyant on the air, or he had that persona on the air that was very well known to people over the seasons. but he also controlled the program in a way that was very business aware.
6:08 am
he was intimately familiar with the ratings performance, with the revenue from the show. he knew everything about that show. and, you know, he's going to run the country. people will mock the comparison, but remember what i said. that style will be how he runs -- it's a microcosm. >> i want to ask you about something else rudy giuliani said because he hasn't done a lot of interviews on this question and specifically around hillary clinton, seems that president-elect trump has turned the page on hillary clinton, mentioning on "60 minutes" wanting to move past that. kellyanne conway said the same thing. so we asked the mayor if called upon to be a special prosecutor and if attorney general sessions asked him to do this, would he do it, here was his response. >> i think several times i offered at various speeches when i probably was a little emoti emotion emotional, i would do it for nothing. i don't know. let's see if we ever get there. >> did you agree with his decision not to prosecute at
6:09 am
this point? >> yes, i agreed that it was good to put it behind us. i think it's good for him to get himself out of it. i told him and we discussed this during the campaign that really isn't the right decision for the president. that's for the attorney general. >> so we turned the page on this? >> i certainly hope so, clayton. and i am delighted that the president-elect has made that decision. why are we going to go back over that sorry ground again? >> there's a lot of sorry ground. >> but, you know, i'm not so sure, pete, as you know i have been extremely skeptical about i think that remembering back to what the majority leader and the house republicans mccarthy said about, you know, the best thing about these hearings is it's diminishing hillary clinton's poll numbers. i think it was really -- politics. there's bigger fish for the justice department to fry. a much more concerned about these allegations were russians really messing with our elections. i want to explore that.
6:10 am
i think that there is real substance there. >> and rudy giuliani agrees with you on that. >> yeah, you can't have people messing with the elections. just because we like the way this one turned out, that doesn't mean we forgive a foreign power for meddling in our elections. i think that's very serious. what if it had gone the other way? what if we didn't like the way it turned out? >> do you reject the idea some are trying to delegitimize trump's election as a result? >> you can investigate without doing that, right? >> the whole electoral college, majority vote and all the rest of it i think people will effort the delegitimatization of the -- but it doesn't matter. he will be the 45th president of the united states. it's not a question of the trump train anymore that we're jumping on. it's america's train. we root for his success. and if you are obstructing that or trying to undermine the president, i think shame on you. but still, that doesn't alter the fact that if the russians messed with our elections we should know about it.
6:11 am
i mean, the next time they'll lower the boom on the republicans. >> that's a great point. >> if they don't like the republican candidate. >> geraldo, thanks for being here this morning. >> sharp suit. >> heard drop below 30 so i take the wool suit out. >> love it. >> thanks, geraldo. we do have some other headlines to get to this morning. president-elect donald trump taking to twitter already this morning responding to reports that he will remain an executive producer on the hit nbc show "the apprentice" while still in the white house. mr. trump tweeting this, i have nothing to do with "the apprentice" except for the fact i conceived it with mark b. and have a big stake in it. will devote zero time and report to cnn that i will be working on the apprentice during my presidency even part time are ridiculous and fake news. senate democrats caved on a bill to fund the government through april of next year. that bill passed with less than an hour to go before midnight deadline last night. red state democrats were trying to tack on health care benefits

my name is pam. i'm 51 years old. when i was diagnosed with pneumococcal pneumonia, it was huge for everybody. she just started to decline rapidly. i was rushed to the hospital... my symptoms were devastating. the doctor said, "pam! if you'd have waited two more days, you would've died." if i'd have known that a vaccine could have helped prevent this, i would have asked my doctor or pharmacist about it.
6:15 am
6:16 am
mitt romney, i voted for him, supported him, i thought he'd be a much better president than barack obama, but i do think like mike huckabee does, he should apologize or explain by some of the comments which hurt me greatly when i was campaigning for my friend donald trump. >> rudy giuliani on the show earlier weighing in on mitt romney's possible choice for secretary of state after his decision to drop out as a
6:17 am
contender. >> yep, joining us now to react is rnc communications director sean spicer. sean, good to see you this morning. >> good morning. good morning guys. >> so let's start with that. everyone is curious about who the pick is going to be for secretary of state. i mean, you heard mayor giuliani there say he's still got some concerns about mitt romney as do many others that have voiced their opinion saying, you know, he got really personal during the campaign about president-elect trump. where do you think his head is at? and who do you ultimately think he will decide for this job? >> well, i think ultimately that decision's like all the other ones, going to be president-elect trump's. he has brought in and you have all seen through the magic of television some of these amazing individuals who've been successful in business and government and the military to come sit down with him, in some cases multiple times to talk about where they think they have strengths that could possibly be used to fulfill his vision and his agenda in terms of restoring america's place abroad. so, look, i think the answer is ultimately when donald trump finally feels somebody clicks
6:18 am
with him, he's going to make that announcement, he'll let the team know. but until then he's going to continue to talk to these individuals until he feels a level of comfort that the right person has been selected. >> is the ceo of exxon, rex tillerson, is he number one choice right now? if you were a betting man. >> i honestly don't know. i don't know where the horse race is. he's definitely a highly qualified individual and someone who made a huge impression on mr. trump. bru e but where that horse race is only president-elect trump knows. i mean, these people are coming decision, he keeps his counsel very close, but he's definitely someone that would be on any short list and high up there because of the immense qualifications that he brings to the table. >> all right. want to get your take on russia, the cia and the tweet that you put out there a few hours ago. you say the rnc just to clarify was not hacked. "new york times" was told and chose to ignore exhibit number one in fake news. >> yeah, actually, the second
6:19 am
one was wait for their next exclusive this morning that elvis is riding a unicorn over a rainbow. they were told -- they were told, high up within "new york times" that this was not true, that intelligence agencies that we are working with confirmed that we have not been hacked. and yet they chose to ignore that because they wanted to write a story that fit a different narrative. the fact of the matter is that they're using unknown, unnamed sources to support a narrative they want to put out there. but the fact is where are the named sources? where are the agency sns how come cia won't go on the record? it's amazing how they want to talk about fake news and bash the right, well, you look at the so-called great institution, the "new york times," they were told very privately that -- and we were willing to give them access to certain things to prove it and yet they chose to ignore it. this is reprehensible. the "new york times" should be ashamed and the american people need to know when you read
6:20 am
something in the "new york times" there is zero credibility. it's shameful what they did. >> so 100% the rnc was not hacked? >> no. that's correct. and we've made thats s a ses e times. we continue to be secure and we have upgraded all of our systems throughout the course of this cycle. and all of that information was provided to "new york times." and like i said in that tweet they chose to ignore it because it didn't fit the narrative they wanted to spell. and they continue to be on this because they don't want to support donald trump. >> all right. we're going to have to leave it there. sean spicer with us this morning. good to see you, sir. >> thanks, sean. >> thanks, guys. many people would call hillary clinton a hypocrite for condemning fake news, but if that's the case, what would you call brian williams? well, this morning he's on a new mission to promote the truth. >> and could one of these kinds of dogs become the newest member of the first family? we've got golden doodles in our green room this morning. why they may be the perfect fit

ways wins. especially in my business. with slow internet from the phone company, you can't keep up. you're stuck, watching spinning wheels and progress bars until someone else scoops your story. switch to comcast business. with high-speed internet up to 10 gigabits per second. you wouldn't pick a slow race car. then why settle for slow internet?
6:24 am
comcast business. built for speed. built for business. welcome back. some quick headlines for you. when president-elect donald trump looks out over the national mall for his inauguration, he won't see a sea of protesters. tens of thousands of people plan to rally against mr. trump on january 20th won't be granted permits. to do so to come out and protest, they're not going to get them. it also includes areas of the washington monument and lincoln memorial. and jill stein denied again. michigan supreme court refusing her appeal to continue a recount again claiming she had no legal standing to request one after
6:25 am
receiving just 1% of the vote. stein blasts the courts. you hear the dogs in the background. you're going to meet them in a second. she was mad at the couriers saying the legal maneuvering has run rough shot over this legal democratic process. dogs, cats -- thank you. once said if you want a friend in washington, get a dog. well, it looks like our president-elect is about to get a new pal. >> yes. meet patton, a 9-week-old golden doodle. he is right there, i presume, the next first dog. so what can the first family expect from their potential new four-legged friend? let's ask our veterinarian heather lind ser. >> thanks for having me back. >> we have a great array here. tell us about the golden doodle. >> the trumps, if they go with patton, are going to get a really family friendly dog. a hybrid between golden retrievers and standard poodles, both of which are awesome dog. neither bred for guarding or protecting, so they're kind of cool with having people come into your house.
6:26 am
>> i think they have enough people guarding. >> probably okay. >> exactly. but there could be any behavior issues can certainly be picked up young, especially with barron in the house they want to make sure they do a good job of socializing barron with the puppy making sure he handles them gently. >> i have a golden retriever, they have fabulous personalities. the problem is they shed. golden doodles don't shed and they don't have allergies. >> that's a very good question. it depends on the dog. it depends if they have more golden retriever than poodle they can shed. and the hype allergenic claim is whether the person is allergic to the dog's skin or dog fur. >> i would be dragged away. >> we definitely want our puppy to be very well taken care of. so we do want him hopefully to go to a veterinarian hospital credited by the american medical hospital association and the trumps can find them if they go to aha.org.
6:27 am
>> these are popular dogs. >> how big -- do they know how large that dog's going to get? >> they don't. the best way to find out is go and take a look at the parents. because they can range between 50 and 90 pounds. that's a huge variation. >> who are these? >> this is bond. he's not a color you think of a golden doodle, but again, that goes back to the fact that they're hybrids and we get a lot of variability. so before you bring one of these dogs home especially if you're worried about shedding and whether or not they're going to be hypoallergenic, visit them. >> who is this guy? >> this is lola, just 1, the dog i have, and abby's dog is about 7 years old. >> fluff ball. >> a fluff ball, yeah. >> you do visit them wherever they're from ideally from a shelter or breed rescue organization, just google doodle rescue and you'll find a ton. make sure you're not accidentally supporting a puppy mill. >> declared me his territory. >> he very well has. there's a lot of research you can do before you get them, but the best thing to do is visit
6:28 am
the dog wherever it is you're going to get them and make sure they fit well with your family. >> all right. we want to see your golden doodle. a popular dog. a lot of people have their own golden doodle or version of that. send us your photos and we'll share them in the show. >> thank you, doctor. >> thank you for having us. coming up, says the american dream might be dead for 30 somethings. and restaurant finds out the hard way, you can't run a business on a socialist playbook. shocker. details straight ahead.
6:29 am
6:30 am
6:31 am
6:32 am
♪ you guys are fast. >> yeah, adorable. >> this is moments ago we asked you to send pictures of your golden doodles and we got a lot of them because the first dog of the united states might become a golden doodle. so ellen from minnesota sends in this photo of her 9-month-old golden doodle rosy. >> i think the bow is bigger than rosy. i love it. this is bella who loves to swim. >> that was definitely not taken today. >> unless they're in florida. >> lots of golden doodles out
6:33 am
there. >> thank you, it's been a fun morning. >> it has been. we have some other headlines to get to this morning as well starting with this one. the pilot of a deadly hot air balloon crash in texas apparently had seven different drugs in his system at the time of the accident. medical experts testifying to the ntsb that alfred was prescribed to several different medications that should have prevented him from piloting. he killed himself and 15 other people in the crash. so sad. hillary and her friends sounding the alarm on fake news. >> it's now clear that so-called fake news can have real world consequences. this isn't about politics or partisanship. lives are at risk. >> but she is apparently in good company with the poster boy of fake news, brian williams, backing up her claim.
6:34 am
>> fake news played a role in this election. and continues to find a wide audience. >> remember, the msnbc anchor was fired from nbc over his own false reporting. and among his exaggerated tales was where he got confused about being in a helicopter in iraq he claimed was hit by enemy fire back in 2003. then there's this one, talk about privilege, an oscar long shot making history at the academy awards before the nominations are even announced. members of the academy reportedly considering kelly mantle, transgender actress starred in womanizer for both supporting actor and supporting actress. mantle born as a man now considers himself a, quote, gender fluid performer, and the academy says that makes him eligible for either award. and a restaurant finds out the hard way you can't run a business on a socialist playbook. the cafe in grand rapids, michigan, closing up shop
6:35 am
without operating without any managers and letting employees make decisions for themselves while paying unequal and unlivable wage. customers quickly grew irritated waiting four minutes for a vegan sandwich. people don't want a vegan sandwich waiting for two seconds. >> yeah, too long for a vegan sandwich. you get to maybe serve people whatever they think they want. >> right. >> that's socialism. >> or go in and make it yourself. >> why not? everything belongs to everybody. researchers say doing better than your parents is part of the american dream, but according to new research that dream is unfortunately fading fast. >> why so many kids are living at home. economists finding half of the 30-somethings earn more than their parents did at a similar age, enormous decline from the '70s when 92% earned more than their parents did. >> so why are today's young americans stalling out? here to weigh in tv host mike rowe. >> welcome back, mike. >> good to see you. thanks for having me. i appreciate it. >> we see the poll numbers here. what is going on? >> well, you were just talking
6:36 am
about fake news. and i would never suggest this is a fake poll, but i would suggest that i have no idea what to make of it. i don't know where the relevance is. and i'm not sure what the authors of it would really have us conclude. i think, as i understand the data, and i'm certainly not a statistician, but we're going back to the depression. and we're looking at the rate with which kids have outearned their parents over the last 70 and 80 and 90 years. and obviously there's a dropoff. when we started keeping track of this kind of thing, the country was depressed and then it was recessed and then we had the post war boom and then, you know, it's just mathematically i don't understand how it's reasonable to assume that every generation is going to out earn the last one. but my bigger problem with it, modest, but it's foundation. hyperfocused on the individual. so we don't look at, you know, dozens of millions of people and how much they're earning this month versus that month. we try to focus on work ethic. we focus on jobs that actually exist. we focus on training and from
6:37 am
what i've seen, the dream is not dead. the dream is alive and well. but, again, look, the premise is it's a dream. >> right. >> the degree to which we hope for things to happen. >> exactly. >> what do you conclude? >> we do a lot of stories on this show about higher education, universities and colleges and safe spaces and trigger warnings and bubble world, are we preparing kids to go out and achieve the american dream like their parents did? >> well, you know, i think the obvious answer is no, but the clever answer is yes if you really look at a dream for what it actually is, a fantasy, a hope. you know, a dream job is this thing that we've told millions and millions of kids is not only out there for them but is the proximate cause of their happiness. so if you don't get your dream job, you're always going to feel vaguely dissettled and unhappy. kind of like not finding your soul mate, right? it's a snipe hunt, it's hard to
6:38 am
go out into the world with that level of expectations. again, it's so much more interesting to me to look at an individual and say are you willing to do a hard thing? that's what "dirty job" was, that is still for sale. >> are they willing to do that? is this younger generation willing to get their hands dirty, mow those 60 lawns a day for the landscaping job to go out there and do the dirty jobs in order to move this economy? >> honestly, with great respect, that's a trick question for me. because if i say yes, i just passed judgment on 40 million people. if i say no, i'm a pessimist and i'm not a pessimist. i honestly believe that the opportunities are better than they ever have been for the precise reason that the reverse commute is more lucrative than it's ever been because more people are looking around and concluding erroneously in my humble opinion, that opportunity is dead. if you really want to distill this down into two most simple
6:39 am
parts in my view, the country is right now divided but not in the ways we typically discuss. it's divided over here by people who are absolutely convinced the hope is dead, opportunity is dead and the dream is dead. and over here people have a different view. we're being divided through optimism and pessimism. and if we don't look a little harder at the numbers that come over the transom, my fear is we're going to conclude something completely upsidedown. >> we also live in this world where you can follow people's instagram accounts and seems like everyone else's life is perfect, right? or you can launch a youtube channel and they become famous within 24 hours. everyone is wanting to be famous today. and you lose sight of humility and service and hard work, and that's what i worry about. that is still the american dream and it should be. >> well, think about reality as it applies both to the american dream and to that particular vertical of tv with which we've become obsessed. my favorite moment in reality television, aside from the ones
6:40 am
i participated in, are those early episodes of "american idol," where you see a 20 or 22-year-old or 18-year-old auditioning and learning somewhat tragically but for the first time in their life that they can't sing. >> right. that they're not good. >> for the first time in their life nobody ever told them, no, look, hey, maybe your dreams and your particular set of skills would be better served over here. and so that's the disconnect. we have 5.8 million jobs available right now. nobody's standing in line to audition for them. >> great point. and we need them. >> do you think a study like this, a reflection kids aren't making what their parents did at that age is part of what trump is tapping into, this sense we're falling behind. we had greater days, they can be great again going forward? >> i think politicians have to say things that confirm the kinds of studies you're talking about and acknowledge the sort of big fat global trends that do in fact exist. but i believe that fundamentally
6:41 am
opportunity lives in the cracks. and in many, many ways the more dire it looks for the masses, the more interesting it becomes for the entrepreneur, the aspiring small business person, but most importantly for the individual who's willing to learn a skill that's actually in demand. we've trained 500 welders. they're killing it right now. they're killing it. steam fitters, pipe fitters, i can go down the list. >> and those in a down economy -- what we talk about on the show, those in a down economy keep that same paycheck, they're in demand, always going to need carpenters, those welders, those skill sets, but what do you think about automati automation? this idea that we're going to bring these jobs back to the united states i think is pretty much a fallacy because those jobs are gone to begin with. now we have robots doing a lot of those jobs. >> right. >> yeah, i think you're right. i mean, look, it's glib to say somebody's going to have to make a road bus. it's true.

i'll defer to huxly said the greatest threat to freedom is total anarchy, the second greatest threat is total efficiency. i think we've confused efficiency with effectiveness in some fundamental ways. one of the tenants of "dirty jobs" was to find people dedicated their work ethos to becoming effective and as a result there was not this obsession with always ringing every last dollar or penny of efficiency out of the model. it was just -- it seemed the simplest thing, but of course i know how naive that sounds. efficiency does push the greater market. and my very first job that anybody ever paid me for was tearing tickets at united artist tv, one of those multiplexes in a mall. i went back today, the usher is gone. the tickets you buy automatically and behind the concession stand you get your popcorn from a machine too. so, you know, we probably don't want to get into the minimum wage, but when you talk about the unintended consequences of moving all that up, you're
6:43 am
knocking the lower rungs off the ladder. and that ain't good. >> it's a changing times. it really is. mike, thanks for being with us this morning. good to get your take on things. >> any time. >> one smart cookie. >> he is. all right. coming up, now that rudy giuliani is out of the running for secretary of state, who is the new front-runner? karl rove to weigh in on that. and we're just hours away from the 117th army versus navy. they're getting pumped up with push-ups. they're going to be doing a lot of that today because that's what they do when they score touchdowns. we're live in baltimore for the big game next. before i had the shooting, burning, pins-and-needles of diabetic nerve pain,
6:44 am
these feet played shortstop in high school, learned the horn from my dad and played gigs from new york to miami. but i couldn't bear my diabetic nerve pain any longer. so i talked to my doctor and he prescribed lyrica. nerve damage from diabetes causes diabetic nerve pain. lyrica is fda approved to treat this pain, from moderate to even severe diabetic nerve pain. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new or worsening depression, or unusual changes in mood or behavior. or swelling, trouble breathing, rash, hives, blisters, muscle pain with fever, tired feeling or blurry vision. common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain and swelling of hands, legs, and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. those who have had a drug or alcohol problem may be more likely to misuse lyrica. now i have less diabetic nerve pain. and these feet would like to keep the beat going. ask your doctor about lyrica.

6:49 am
the u.s. naval academy band, over my right shoulder you have midshipmen and cadets gearing up getting ready for this fight. now, most of the time in the army and navy we are a team when we go to war, but this is the one day a year when the army and navy are at war. this tradition started in the 1890s and got so heated at one point that an admiral and a general almost got into a duel. it's been a game played almost every year since 1930. now, because the president is also the commander in chief, sometimes we have the president attend the game. this may be the first time that the president-elect is attending the game, as donald trump will be here today. and in fact this morning he tweeted about it saying, quote, as a show of support for our armed forces, i'm going to be at the army-navy game today. looking forward to it. it should be fun. and mr. trump, if you're listening, i can promise you it will be fun. this is an incredible event. there's going to be a fly-by of four f-35s, the hottest jets in the navy and marine corps today.
6:50 am
there's going to be so much festivities around us as well. this whole week leading up to this event midshipmen at the naval academy, cadets at west point have been having bonfires, pep rallies and a lot of spirited shenanigans between the two teams. so it's going to be a wonderful time. exciting starting at 3:00 p.m. today. and, you know, i know we're supposed to be fair and balanced here at fox news, but this is the one day that i am bias. so i have to say go navy, beat army. >> you are super bias, lea, but you do a great job for us. >> i think this might be my favorite football game. army versus navy, so much spirit behind it. >> so much tradition army uniforms today are modeled after the paratroopers in world war ii of the 82nd airborne. >> really? >> yeah, netting on the helmets modeled after their uniforms, very cool. so much tradition with the game. >> love it. we'll be watching. secretary of state list gets shorter this morning. rudy giuliani out. so where could trump go from here to fill that cabinet post? our own karl rove, there he is, here to weigh in next. he's my own.

the secretary of state list getting a little shorter as america's mayor, rudy giuliani, drops out of the race. joining us now is former senior advisor to president george w. bush and fox news contributor karl rove. merry christmas, karl. thanks for joining us this morning. >> merry christmas. >> indeed. we had the mayor on earlier in the show confirm that indeed he did take his name out of the running actually back in late november. what do you make of that and how does that reshuffle the consideration for secretary of state? >> well, look, it probably doesn't reshuffle it because he did make it in late november. so donald trump has known this for look this happens all the
6:55 am
time in transitions. happened to us several times in transition that somebody was under consideration, withdrew their name in 2000, 2001, but we know about it now because this transition has been so public. donald trump has decided, you know, interview people publicly. summons them to trump tower. and i think it's helped him because it's given people a sense of who he is, he's a magnanimous individual putting things behind him, looking for the best person, giving it serious consideration. i think this doesn't really change the reality of it much. he's got a tough decision to make. he's taking his time. and he's going to come up with whom he thinks is going to be the best partner to him as secretary of state. >> who do you think is at the top of that list? a name we've been talking about this morning ceo of exxon, rex tillerson, do you think that's the most likely outcome here? >> well, it's the latest one. and he's a terrific person. he's a personal friend of mine. i know him well. i had lunch with him last week. he is a great individual. and we've got others, we've had
6:56 am
mitt romney, jim -- the admiral. we've got david petraeus. look, here's the deal, this is a very personal decision. we can talk all we want about this, but there's one person who's going through an enormous set of very elaborate calculations as to who he wants and that's donald j. trump. only he knows what the ratings are right now. >> quickly, only 30 seconds to go, karl, i want your thoughts on a new bloomberg poll out showing president-elect trump's popularity at 50%, highest it's ever been nationally. >> look, fox news exit poll on election night 38 favorable, 61 unfavorable. i like looking at averages of polls. if you take the six most recent december, only in december, it's now 45-55, that's a change. in one month up positive 7, down on the negative 11. i suspect that we'll start shortly having more polls here that have donald trump above 50% and his favorables higher than unfavorables by the time he gets sworn in. >> great karl rove.
6:57 am
love it. >> abby? >> yeah. >> you asked for advice on as the only adult on the set to take care of those boys, morris till says drop and give you 20. >> i love it. i love it. when cold and flu hold you back try theraflu expressmax, now in new caplets. it's the only cold & flu caplet that has a maximum strength formula with a unique warming sensation you instantly feel. theraflu. for a powerful comeback. new expressmax caplets.
