she claimed he was mad because she was taking too long. >> it's that time of year. people are getting ancy out there shopping around. 'tis the season. thank you for joining us. >> "fox & friends" starts right now. bye. ♪ and i'm proud to be an american where at least i know i'm free ♪ ♪ where i won't forget the men who died who gave that right to me ♪ ♪ and i gladly stand up next to you and defend her still today ♪ ♪ because there ain't no doubt i love this land god bless the usa ♪ >> it is ten-degree weather outside. >> we live in a great country. that's a beautiful shot of sixth avenue which heads right up into central park. you saw the american flag there. and it is thursday, which means you only have one more alarm clock. >> wait a minute, you're leaving something out. today is our christmas party. we're having our christmas party
today, the holiday party for some at a nearby bowling alley. >> that's right. i was hoping for karaoke, but we are doing bowling instead. >> you can do bowling karaoke. >> you can sing while i bowl. >> i can't do either one. what about your jersey? >> my bowling shirt. >> i have a shirt with my name on it. brian has one, too. >> i put it in my hall of fame and i visit it every day. >> every day. >> we're excited because it is thursday, it's our christmas party. plus, we have a great lineup. kellyanne conway, special adviser to president-elect trump will be joining us. also senator joe manchin, there's a struggle over whether or not he's going to remain a democrat in the senate. >> no kidding. >> he says, if i want to reach my constituents, i have to hop on fox news. and he said when he won, he was disenchanted with his party. so you know what happened? the white house stopped talking to him. so for eight years there was no
contact. this president is a president-elect who called him right away. and we have rob to -- o' neill joining us. >> and this could be donald trump's first dog. >> if baron has his pick, it will be a golden doodle in the white house. >> donald trump showed the picture to baron, baron liked the dog. every family in the white house has a dog. and the president-elect is continuing his thank you tour today. >> silicon valley is trying to hit the reset button with mr. trump, but missing at the table? twitter. where was @jack? >> and where are the smiles? live in washington, d.c. with the details is peter doocy. >> reporter: hey, guys.
up on the 25th floor of trump tower, the president-elect was looking for ways for the companies to make more money. even though the president-elect called out the companies like apple, who he thinks should have helped the fbi unlock the san bernardino terrorists' iphones, but he was very complimentary. >> there's nobody like you in the world, in the world, there's nobody like the people in this room. and anything we can do to help this go along, we'll be there for you. and you'll call my people, you'll call me, it doesn't make any difference. we have no formal chain of command around here. >> reporter: there is a lot of buzz about why mr. trump did not invite the company that helped him reach millions of people for free every day, that's twitter, a month-old blog post from a member of trump's digital team has surfaced where a person complained that the social media site banned a crooked hillary
emoji during a debate, but the trump team said they don't believe twitter is big enough to sit at the table of facebook and tesla. >> the conference table was only so big, okay. there were a lot of companies, if you go down the list of the top tech companies, you will find additional ones not there. there was not an intentional slight. and it is frankly ridiculous that you're sitting around, there is only so many people that can actually sit around a conference table. >> reporter: and reports are that meetings like that one will keep happening down here in d.c. organized by mr. trump's son-in-law jared kushner. back to you in new york. thank you, peter. what is interesting after donald trump, usually after people are elected president of the united states, they surround themselves with people that helped get him to the white house. the only friendly faces were mike pence and his family because everybody else around the table voted for hillary clinton and raised a lot of money for hillary. >> it's going to be interesting
because they have a different view on immigration. we need more. we need more engineers, we need a lot of the exchange students to stay here after we educate them in places like stanford and the ivies, the great colleges. i wonder if they voiced their opinion to have their voice heard. >> well, technology is so big now. you have to hear their voices. and it reminds me of ronald reagan. people compared ronald reagan to donald trump. he had so many friends on the other side of the aisle. and i feel like donald trump is trying to bring everyone in to say, all right, i want to hear your opinion. i want to hear your opinion and your opinion from all different walks of life that represent industry here in america so that he can then take that assessment into the white house and have a better idea of what that could be. >> right. because it is all about jobs, he wants high-tech jobs in this country. meanwhile, we'll talk about this. the guy who runs the house intelligence committee, devon nuez, sent a letter to the intel community to say, hey, i've been reading a lot in the paper about
how russia threw the election toward donald trump. so let's come on up to capitol hill to talk about it. well, yesterday, all the intel community agencies said, you know what? we're busy. we can't come, which is really curious given the fact how much they have been leaking in some cases. >> think about this, they say they are not going to come and address the house intelligence committee, which i don't think has ever really happened before that i can remember. when you request it, you should come. number two, the excuse they gave. president obama asked for a review. we're focusing on that, really? so the house doesn't matter, the people's voice doesn't count? and they just want to know, the last time that james tapper, the director of the national intelligence spoke in november, he said he didn't know where these hacks came from. why all of a sudden did momentum change over the weekend and we have a total new view of what happened with the election? >> so you have folks that are in the intelligence community saying, russia was involved in this election. you have house members of the senate, if that's the case, the
cia, yeah, because the fbi and the dni are not on the same page. you have all these agencies that represent the intel community that are not on the same page. the house members say if russia did hack, we want to bring you guys in and hear your evidence. and they are saying, we are not going to provide people. does that lead to believe because they don't have the facts or the information? >> here's the thing, ainsley, if the cia found something earth shattering, they would have an obligation to come present it to the american people. but they are not showing up. josh earnest, however, who is so very partisan there at the white house, he said, clearly, donald trump was involved. he's blaming trump and the russians and everybody else. watch. >> the republican nominee himself calling on russia to hack his opponent. it might be an indication that he was obviously aware and concluded, based on whatever facts or sources he was -- he had available to him, that russia was involved.
the republican nominee chose a campaign chair that had extensive, lucrative, personal, financial ties to the kremlin. and it was obvious to those covering the race that the hack and leak strategy that had been operationalized was not being equally applied to the two parties. >> i don't remember this ever happening. when you had a press secretary for an outgoing administration going after the president-elect. and by the way, i asked him, he's been asked many times, donald -- he's referring to the fact that donald trump was asked at a press conference about the leaks or hacks when it comes to hillary clinton. he says, i don't know if russia is behind it, but i'll tell you what, if you are behind it, can we get the 30,000 e-mails you illegally deleted from your files and never handed over? it was a sarcastic remark to the president of theed united states and josh earnest took it as factual. >> i agree with you. josh earnest is saying, if donald trump is calling for an
investigation, that means he knows that russia was involved. no, donald trump, in my opinion is saying, if russia was involved, we want to know. let's get to the bottom of it. so let's have a briefing. >> when you look at what he said, he said, he might be, might know. there's a lot we don't know. and yet, josh earnest, as many democrats are trying to discredit donald trump. and what they're trying to do is they are trying to muddy the waters before the electorates vote on december 19th. peter king says, look, if somebody is leaking false information against the president-elect, there's got to be an investigation. watch. >> this violates all protocols and it is almost as if people in the intelligence community are carrying out a disinformation campaign against the president-elect of the united states. it's absolutely disgraceful. if they are not doing it, it must be somebody in the house or senate leaking false information. and there should be a full investigation of this. >> donald trump's been complimentary toward the current president after they never
really met each other and ripped each other in the worst way possible personally for the past five years. i think this is truly going to jeopardize relationships and cause friction between the administrations and bring us right back into the sewer. the president of the united states pushing that narrative, josh earnest pushing that narrative. >> people just can't accept the election results. >> i think donald trump will rise above the shabbiness. the democrats are grasping at straws. donald trump from his 26th floor, i hope, doesn't pay attention to it. but once again, it's all about trying to create a mess before the electors vote. and there are all the stories about how the electors are going to flip and stuff like that. >> do you have a fever? >> why? >> has donald trump ever ducked from a fight? if he feels he's been called out immorally and wrongly -- >> i think he realizes he's now part of that special presidential club. i think he will have his surrogates do the attacking. i don't think he'll do it himself. i could be wrong.
>> 102. >> you never know. i'm excited about bullets. we have breaking news on this thursday, a dangerous inmate is on the loose and heather has the very latest on the manhunt. >> we're talking about fayettevil fayetteville, north carolina. a massive manhunt is intensifying in that area for an escaped inmate who is believed to be armed and, quote, very dangerous. police in fayetteville say this man, edward moore jr., was being treated at a hospital when he assaulted an officer, swiped that officer's taser and then escaped through the front door. he then stole a car and drove off. that car was later found. but moore, a convicted bank robber, is still on the run at this hour. so many military families in that community. the muslim teenager, remember her? she claimed that three drunk trump supporters called her a terrorist and attacked her on a new york city subway. it turns out she lied about it. according to sources, the nypd arrested her and has now charged her with filing a false police
report. the 18-year-old woman described the made-up attack on facebook blaming president-elect trump for promoting what she called islamophobia. when questioned by cops, she said she made up the story to distract her angry father. and people 21 years or older are allowed to carry 1 ounce of pot with him and can grow six plants at home. but people cannot legally buy the plant. it will be another year before the state changes the retail licenses. and d.c. has a seat at the table, and now reports are circulating that ivanka trump is taking over the white house office, traditionally served or reserved for the first lady. no decisions have been made about ivanka's involvement, at least not yet. this comes after the future first lady, melania trump, announced that she and her son
baron would not move to the white house until the end of the school year. and those are your headlines. that is interesting. >> stay tuned. thank you. president-elect donald trump predicting a bright future. >> we're going to win so much you're going to go to paul ryan, you're going to go, mr. speaker, please, please, we can't stand winning this much. >> but do the american people see the same thing? the brand new dials just in. and this is what hard work looks like. meet the chick-fil-a worker in a sling and neck brace. there's an incredible story behind the picture. and find out how you can help coming up.

>> he was on the american tour. let's talk about what he said on the tour. the first one he said, you have to hire american, buy american. watch this, in particular. >> and we're going to put our people back to work in the process. it's time to help get americans off of welfare and back into the labor market. building this country with american hands and american workers, my administration will follow two simple rules. buy american and hire american, right? we're going to do it. >> so how did he do? >> you can see independents and republicans gave this an a-plus. democrats a "c." independents continue to track with donald trump's message on jobs and the economy. people are so encouraged based on the actions, based on carrier, ibm announcing they will add 25,000 jobs. it is a message that is resonating.
and even democrats are coming around. >> he announced that rex tillerson will be secretary of state this week. listen to what he said about rex and then we'll talk about it. >> today i announce my plans to nominate rex tillerson, right? the chief executive officer and chairman of exxonmobil to be the next secretary of state. rex is one of the greatest and most skilled global business leaders of our time. made some of the greatest deals ever made in the oil industry or any industry. a great diplomat, a strong man, a tough man. >> lee, what is the grade? >> republicans, b-plus. independents, c and democrats,
f. >> mr. speaker, please, we can't stand winning this much. we can't take it. and he's going to come to see me and say, mr. president, the people in wisconsin are tired of winning so much. you're winning with health care. we're winning on the border. we're winning with isis because we are going to get isis out. >> lee? >> you can see republicans a "b," independents a "c," and democrats a "d." >> i don't understand how democrats want to win, but a little too brag gy, i guess. okay. thank you for being here, lee. good news for planned parenthood. plus the secretary of hud is going to face a hard time in the senate. and he knows tillerson well.
what jim has to say about mr. rex tillerson. hey, jim. come on in. afoot and light-hearted i take to the open road. healthy, free, the world before me, the long brown path before me leading wherever i choose. the east and the west are mine. the north and the south are mine. all seems beautiful to me.
all right. we've got quick thursday morning headlines for you directly from president obama's desk. first, a last-minute power grab for planned parenthood. the rule goes into effect two days before donald trump's inauguration. and nothing says america like the bald eagle, but president obama is okay with killing them. the obama administration also passing a rule protecting wind companies from federal fines even if thousands of bald eagles
are killed by flying into the high-speed planes. all right, there you go. some of the news. president-elect donald trump's pick for secretary of state is fueling criticism and praise. leaders on both sides of the aisle are doubtful about him calling on rex tillerson's ties to russia as a potential problem. but the next guest says exxonmobil's ceo is the perfect pick for chief diplomat. jim is joining us now. he knows rex tillerson personally and knows the world he was in and is about to get in. first off, the guy you know, the rex you know, tell us about it. >> he's a very experienced individual. he's been all over the world, working many different functions of exxonmobil. and if you rise to the top of a company like exxonmobil, you have competed against your peer group for decades. and ever ultimately selected to follow raymond. and he's done a good job running one of the most complex, sophisticated and technical companies in the world.
>> you also told me something you did not know. when you run a power player like exxon, you visit the state department a lot and get to know the people. >> you are an american company and american citizen. don't you want your government to know what you're doing? don't you want that government's help and assistance when operating abroad? the answer is yes. i had a secret clearance when i was at shell, so i could deal with the issues i would have to deal with. and i'm sure other chief executives of other american companies have similar clearance to work with the u.s. government. the u.s. government is their enabler oftentimes. sometimes we'll intervene on their behalf. and this is not an unfamiliar relationship between the u.s. government and top executives of a u.s. company. >> that's why so many people took note when jim baker, former secretary of state, contindolee rice and others talked about
this. >> i am concerned about his relationship with vladimir putin. vladimir putin is a thug, a murderer, who only wants to restore the russian empire. >> i am concerned with his relationship with russia. we want to make sure the secretary of state is a person who represents america. >> marco rubio had similar sentiments. your thoughts? >> of course they have concerns. we have a vetting process to let rex come and explain what he's done over the years. you don't make friends in the oil and gas business, you make associates. you make relationships. those have to be functioning relationships in order to satisfy the needs of all parties. if exxonmobil doesn't do a good deal, exxonmobil is going to be very unhappy. if the russians or the equitorial gonads or anyone else don't get a good deal, they won't be happy either. >> let me bring up something
from his past and you can shed light on it. you mentioned the small ecuadorian town that had a deal cut. there were many upset over that deal getting cut. >> i don't believe this is responsible for the actions of the first family. >> he tried to nationalize exxon, he took them to court one but they lost a lot of money. he says he learned from that. >> right. you had your assets being taken away, all the money that you have spent, it's being taken away by state control. yes, you're going to fight something like that. exxonmobil was not the only company that fought chavez in evevenezuela on the issues. >> on the day of the election, you bet on trump. you voted for clinton in '08 and wanted her to get the nomination
and voted for trump on day one. do you sense he's got this plan? >> not yet. it takes time to make a plan. i teach planning at three universities and it takes time, patience, and you have to look beyond your term in office. and that's what we have been missing in this country ever since we have been vulnerable to foreign imports. >> all of the above is really none of the above. john hofmeister, thank you for coming in. thank you for helping us learn more about the man who could be our next secretary of state. coming up, back in the news this morning, what we just learned about the irs. plus, our friend performed on the show yesterday. what happened after the show, you're looking at it, it is hilarious. no wonder ainsley wants karaoke. ♪ but you can do the job when you're in town ♪
to sing with steve amerson. ♪ later on we'll conspire as we dream by the fire ♪ ♪ the face unafraid the plans that we made walking in a winter wonderland ♪ >> i wouldn't be surprised if this show becomes a musical version of "fox & friends." >> we were totally sober, too. we were singing and dancing. >> i'm not so sure -- it was a lot of fun. why don't we invite musical acts on -- well, we should just do the numbers ourselves. >> you sent me the video yesterday and i was like, i don't want to watch it.
>> it was hilarious. >> we were having so much fun, though, celebrating christmas. >> his christmas album is just stunning. >> yeah. >> he's got one song that he sang yesterday. i put it in my cd player. i put that in last night and played it over and over and over. >> i have an a-track player and it is hard to find new stuff. >> i have a vitrola. it has so many scratches on my johnny mathis album. >> time now for news. and it's back to the affluenza story. good morning, everyone. a couple news headlines to bring you. like father, like son. do you remember the family that sparked national outrage, this dad said his son was too rich to know the difference between right and wrong. now the dad is in trouble himself. a judge sentenced fred couch to
probation for pretending to be a police officer with a fight with a neighbor. he said the affluenza teen was 16 and slapped on the wrist for killing four people in a drunk driving crash back in 2013. and a lavish steak dinner, guess who is enjoying that? well, some folks at the irs and you are paying for it. there's a brand new report out of the senate revealing that 27 irs workers racked up more than $1.4 million in travel expenses in one year alone. some were given more than $7,000 to spend in one month. the irs has not responded to that report. we'll watch that one. and teachers in one school district will now be arm in the classroom. a school board outside of colorado springs, colorado, say that it's time to step up and keep kids safe. but that move is leaving parents divided. >> it's a matter of being proactive. this is not about we think our
school is going to get attacked. this is not about that. >> well, what happens if the staff has a gun and they have anger issues? >> they must have permits and undergo training before being allowed to carry weapons in schools. and this is what hard work looks like. a photo of a chick-fil-a worker wearing a neck brace and arm brace in indiana. the employee was in a serious car crash and went to work later. when a customer asked him why he wasn't home recovering, he had a really good reason. listen. >> he did not want to let his team down by just calling in and not showing up, but he also wanted to use the money for christmas presents and to be able to feed the homeless as well. >> that customer set up a gofundme page. the goal started at $2500 and now stands at more than $21,000.
if you want to spread christmas cheer, go to gofundme.com and search for fund-raiser for jakeem tyler. what an incredible man. he's doing the right thing. >> that's a good work ethic. >> jakeem tyler, j-a-k-e-e-m. in indiana. >> what a great guy. it's one of the most highly-anticipated movies of the year. >> the empire has one chance. what chance do we have? >> we have hope. rebellion is built on hope. >> and the latest installment in the "star wars" saga "rogue one" hits theaters today. >> we'll be live from the red carpet and a preview of what it's about. because you sat down with the director and the cast. >> i did. they told me what it was like to be a part of this iconic series.
>> so you understand? >> i understand. >> what is it like as a director to step into these shoes of "star wars"? i mean, it's got to be somewhat daunting? >> to me they're masterpieces. to try to make a film that fits on your shelf like the others is a high bar. but a strange thing happens because i grew up like a lot of kids my age who watched "star wars" every day playing with toys, so you get on the set and then you just feel like a kid. and you feel like you've gone back home. and it is really a comfortable space to make a movie. >> when you got the call that you made the cut, you were going to be part of the "star wars" universe, what was your first reaction? >> i became a 6-year-old and started crying, shouting, jumping. but then they said, you cannot tell anyone.
>> i believe my character is the closest to the force. the fact he's a believer and he has to feel it with his heart. and he gets to say the coolest line. >> i fear nothing. all this and before this. >> are you with me? >> all the way. >> answering questions about "star wars" -- >> i saw 28 minutes of it. people will say a lot of things they have not seen before in the "star wars" movies, but it has the familiar elements to keep people going back more and more. i'm going the see it tomorrow night. >> check out foxnews.com for more of my celebrity news. or follow me on instagram. >> that's a pretty picture. you look amazing. >> it looks cheesy. >> michael, thank you very much.
>> merry christmas, michael. great to see you. thank you. meanwhile, the president-elect has a couple cabinet positions to fill. when can we expect those announcements? this week? kellyanne conway here at the top of the hour. and hillary clinton's camp said the russians attacked her. judge napolitano says we should forget russia and investigate national security agents. here's the judge, i'm going to shake his hand. i have asthma... ...one of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine. i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment with breo. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours.
breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. see if you're eligible for 12 months free at mybreo.com. . . . . .
information. but get this, the cheaters won't see any of the cash. dozens of civil cases are still pending. >> come and get it! and you can now take mario wherever you go. yes, good news, honey, i cheated but we're rich! >> that is a fascinating story. >> you can take super mario run on your apple device today. and now apple is unveiling more than 100 new emojis. there's a bald eagle, there's a fox and there's some bacon. >> finally, bacon. all right. thank you, emojis and apple. >> bacon! and meanwhile, an intel hearing on claims russians hacked our election to help donald trump has been canceled, as u.s. spy agencies refuse to show up on capitol hill. allegations are taking a nastier turn now.
watch. >> the republican nominee himself calling on russia to hack his opponent. it might be an indication that he was obviously aware and concluded, based on whatever facts or sources he was -- he had available to him, that russia was involved. >> the white house suggesting mr. trump knew that russia was involved, but our next guest claims they had nothing to do with it. here to explain is fox news judicial analyst judge andrew n napolitano. >> i hope josh earnest was as much ingest in what he just said as donald trump was when he said 0
>> politics? >> right. their boss is a barack obama appointee. the fbi may have a desire to decide, you know, there's not enough evidence to point a finger at moscow. >> joe -- judge, i don't know why i called you joe. >> that's the least offensive thing you've ever called me. >> when you look at "new york times" yesterday, the president has known about this since september of 2015. he chose to do absolutely nothing, in 2015 we didn't think donald trump was going to be leading the -- the leading republican let alone be facing
off with hillary clinton. >> look, there's a whole world out there that is below the fold, below the radar scope that we don't know about which is the intelligence community. they have rivalries between them. they have ideological pred likss, if there were raw data here, it would be difficult for us to interpret it. two groups looking at the same data can read the same thing and interpret it 180 degrees differently from each other. that's what happened here. when donald trump says the russians did not hack mrs. clinton, he's right. somebody leaked from mrs. clinton's emails, but nobody went in there and altered her operational systems which is what hacking does. if you want to change the outcome of an election, are you going to alter the candidates operating systems or the people who registered the voters and
count the votes. >> she should have been blaming herself. >> she should have been for a long time the minutes she decided to use her own server. >> kilmeade, stay away from that madison stuff. >> and james madison. president-elect's donald trump's cabinet is filling up. who will get the final jobs? we're asking kellyanne conway. will she answer? >> and the pup named patton who could be moving into the white house. meet him next. ♪ ♪ healthy, free, the world before me, the long brown path before me leading wherever i choose. the east and the west are mine. the north and the south are mine.
president harry truman said if you want a friend in washington, get a dog and it looks like our president-elect might be doing just that. >> joining us right now the prospective first dog, a labradoodle. his name is patton. >> tell us how he became a contender. >> when i first heard that trump won, okay, i thought we got to do a nationwide search for the perfect dog for president trump, president-elect trump, but, you know, i've changed my mind. i think that barron needs the dog. >> because traditionally the first family always has a dog. you are a neighbor of donald trump. you have actually introduced this dog to donald trump and he's shown -- tell us about the
picture that you showed him to show barron. >> i showed a picture of him on my iphone on thanksgiving. i was at the very next table to the president and melania and barron and i showed him the picture hero dog because i mentioned that becomes from a long line of hero dogs who serve our troops in afghanistan and iraq. he said melania, hero dog. don't show him to barron or he will want him. i walk over to barron, he was playing his computer games. i showed him a picture of this and. >> what did he say? >> he said nothing but what he said on his face told me everything. >> do you think the trump family is going to adopt him?
>> i don't know. this is a very special dog. >> you put the offer out there. >> you know, i rescue dogs. i've had 20 dogs that i rescued. this dog is phenomenal. he's phenomenal. he's a golden doodle but he's mostly a golden retriever and he has a little bit of poodle mix. golden retriever is the most loyal dog that you've ever own. he's great around kids and he would be great with barron and he's super smart because poodles are noted for their intelligence. >> he's got a big backyard at the white house to run around. >> i could see him romping around the white house. >> how cool would that be? >> i can see him romping around mara lago too. i can. >> we have kellyanne conway coming up. we'll ask her about it. 22 years ago today, first responders pulled off the impossible after a plane crash.

security and repay tree yating funds from abroad. i thought it was fantastic. >> you are focusing now on the cabinet. 16 positions. two have not been filled. when can we expect to be those being named? >> those interviews are ongoing and we're happy with the pace and the execution. this is a very donald trump project. isn't it the cabinet? under budget and ahead of schedule. we are ahead of the past presidents of i think the last 30 or 40 or 50 years, that includes george herbert walker bush who was a vice president. these are a result of a number of interviews, very capable men and women. it's been an incredible opportunity for us to witness because they come in and they share their vision and their ideas and their experiences, and they just want to help. they all love america.
they want to help this next administration. some will end up in the cabinet and some won't. >> the big job was secretary of state, we found out this week the president-elect's pick is rex tillerson. it's interesting, there's a story out there that says that mitt romney who the president-elect really, really became fond of after the election, one of the reasons he didn't wind up with the job is he would not publicly apologize for the stuff he said before the election. >> i've never been in any conversation, any meeting where somebody said that was a condition of him being secretary of state, if that were true then perhaps he wouldn't have been invited in the first place. he was invited because the president-elect wanted to interview him for the position of secretary of state. we had many, many qualified candidates. you have to be comfortable with someone that's going to also execute on the trump doctrine, if you will, and advance u.s. interests around the globe. so the fact that others were not chosen is really nothing against them so much as the case and mr. tillerson, you are just dealing
with what mr. trump called the world class player. somebody who has already done these deals, negotiated, somebody familiar with russia, china, yemen, the middle east, the developing world. has been active in 50 countries. >> he's so cozy with vladimir putin. aren't you watching the other channels? >> he's not cozy but he certainly understands how to get deals done and he understands russia and he has said no to vladimir putin. >> when did he say no? >> i've read in comments he's made. they are private negotiations tweent exxon mobil and heads of state. it's unfortunate, you look back, eight years ago, when president-elect obama when he was forming his cabinet, the first 7 nominees went through pretty much. and hillary clinton was on a
voice vote. i think the american people are reacting in a certain way. the president-elect has his highest favorability rating on record and climbing. i also saw on a fox news poll 59%, six in ten say that russian hacking didn't help him win the election. >> the cia thinks there could be a possibility of hacking with russia. and the house intelligence community said he lets have a briefing. they said hold on, we don't have anyone to go in front of the house to talk about it. does that mean there's not enough evidence? >> it could be. it's indicate if of some of the disagreements we saw in the press between the intelligence officials. people should recognize that there's unsourced, unnamed quotes flying around from folks who are leaking from previous intelligence committee briefings or other entities, and what i don't like is they just draw
this direct nexus the possibility of hacking and the election results. that's not right. let's roll the tape of everyone, all those geniuses on tv, all the people on team clinton, let's roll the tape leading up to the election day. how many people were talking about this as interfering in the election? they were talking about what they were going to do in the west wing. the path was closed. we can never win. not that j.d. gave a shout out to james comey or vladimir putin. >> i never remember the press secretary playing politics from the white house when his candidate is not even running. here's he's saying donald trump actually called on russia to hack. listen. >> the republican nominee himself calling on russia to hack his opponent. it might be an indication that he was obviously aware and concluded based on whatever facts or sources he was -- he had available to him that russia
was involved. the republican nominee chose a campaign chair that had extensive, lucrative, personal financial ties to the kremlin, and it was obvious to those who were covering the race that the hack and leak strategy that had been operationalized was not being equally applied to the two parties. >> that is just remarkable. that is breath taking. i guess he's odd igsing to be a political pundit. that is disappointing to hear from the podium of the white house secretary. he essentially stated that the president-elect had knowledge of this. maybe even fanned the flames. it's incredibly irresponsible and i wonder if his boss, president obama agrees. >> he does. he said it on "the daily show" a couple of days prior that donald trump called for the hacking of hillary clinton emails. do you remember what he claimed
that sarcastic comment, hey russia, let's find those 30,000 emails? the president said. >> that's unfortunate it too. he also said this is a fair and free election. he congratulated the president-elect and conceded the election results as did secretary clinton. we should be talking about what we know. not what we don't know. what we know is hillary clinton selfishly set up a private server that put us all at risk. when you are talking about hacking into emails, why have we left behind the piece of evidence that's right in front of us? what are people going to say? oh, we already investigated that. we already know everything about that. do we? she got this party started, but i think coming from the podium and basically trying to relitigate a political campaign when the president-elect and president and senior staff are trying to work very closely to have a peaceful transition of power with a month ago, i find
it unfortunate. >> you know why they are doling doing it. first the recall didn't work, what did they do, plan b? let's throw stuff out of russia. >> james comey and some movement we're not involved with at all. >> this is mainstream media and the political left trying to discredit donald trump before he takes office. >> this is going to be a backlash. people were told this is what's important to you. stare at this. this issue is critical to your vote. this is going to win the election, and people rejected it. they said this is about some very simple truths. i don't want obamacare to continue. i want more free market patient centered health care. i like 25 million jobs being created over 10 years. coal, shale, we have energy under our feet and off our shores. if you want something made in the usa, go develop energy. it's made right here. people respond specific solutions and messages. they are going to see this as a continuation of the permanent
campaign of people who can't get over themselves, their bad prediction frankly and the fact they wanted a different result. they started this with her server. >> and it also started with jill stein. she had the recount. >> she came in fourth. >> and we pick up more votes. thank you, jill stein. we didn't know we had a couple extra thousand votes. >> a couple of things, john kerry and barack obama have said after talking to president-elect and president who is leaving who hit it off so well, the president thinks he's changing donald trump as to his view. >> when you are a president of the united states, that's very few people, ever, i think there's seven now living, and you can learn from each other. there's no question. and they both love their country. they want that peaceful transfer
of democracy. substantively on the issues, ideologically what donald trump said in the campaign is he will be the president. he had specifics in the campaign. >> nothing has changed. >> he had an on the record interview of "new york times." he's going to look at everything and consult with experts. he's not willing to make policy right now when he's the president-elect. everybody knows donald trump. you know where you stand on the issues with donald trump. they can look at the 100-day vision and rest assured because he has a republican house and senate and republican state legislature and republican governors. he's a guy who is going to accomplish great things quickly. >> you've known donald trump for a while, since he was elected president of the united states, we've been watching. it seems like he's changed a little bit. he seems much more presidential. up close, have you noticed a change? >> i've always found him to be presidential and a true leader. he's incredibly engaging. brilliant, obviously.
we don't know when he sleeps so don't ask. i will lose that bet. >> or if. >> i will tell you one thing about him, he clearly is struck by the gravity and responsibility of the job. he knew that going in, but i think it's like anything else in life, until it actually descends upon you, that gravity and responsibility and with it comes a certain humility. >> you've been very honest with you. stay tune tomorrow. look out tomorrow. and it happened. >> unless he announces it on stage. >> what can we look forward for the rest of the week? >> these two cabinet positions that will be filled. i think you are going to be made senior staff positions being filled out. the president-elect has been surrounded by a small and very loyal and sharp team that helped i think leverage his natural gifts and his vision and his voice in becoming president of the united states. you are going to start to see that in some of the deputy secretaries. >> va and what's the other one? >> agriculture.
>> and kellyanne's future? >> i've worked on a blew berry farm for eight summers. knob has asked me about ag. >> great to see you. there is a massive manhunt intensifying this hour in north carolina, in the fair yetville area, for an escaped inmate believed to be armed and very dangerous. police there say this man, edward moore j reform was being treated at a hospital when he assaulted an officer, swiped his taser and escaped through the front door. he stole a scar and drove off. a convicted bank robber is still on the run at this hour. do you remember this muslim teenager who claimed three drunk trump supporters called her a terrorist and attacked her on the subway? it turns out she lied. according to sources, the nypd has arrested her and charge him with filing a false police
report. she describes it on facebook and blaming president-elect donald trump for islam phobia. when caught by cops, she said she would been out drinking and made up the entire story to distract her angry father. those are your headlines. >> something else, huh? >> it is indeed. why didn't mitt romney make the cut for secretary of state? we have the scoop from behind the scenes. and interrupted by a rare move by the federal reserve. why should you care? stuart varney is here to tell us what that woman did yesterday to impact your pocket book. the holidays should bring joy. so why are you still putting up with complicated cash back cards? some cards limit where you earn bonus cash back to places they choose... then they change those places every few months.

well, the stock markets post election momentum interrupted by a rare move by the fed, interest rates increased by a quarter point for the second time in ten years. >> what does that mean for all of us? here to break it down is stuart varney. what does it mean? >> can i get one thing straight right from the get go.
janet yellen has been consistently wrong about the u.s. economy for years and years and years and she's now wrong again. she forecast strong economic growth throughout the obama years. never happened. we never got better than 2%. now at her meeting yesterday, you see her right there, she forecast weak growth in the future. 2% next year. 1% the year after. even though donald trump has a program has going to be in place which in all likelihood will give us 3, 4% growth. wrong again. >> so the market reacted yesterday. how would you character rise it? >> i would characterize that as a knee jerk reaction and a reaction against her view of the future and i think there's going to be a little bounceback today and a lot of bounceback in the very near future. i try not to forecast the stock market but i think we're going toward 20,000 on the dow very rapidly, if not today, then fairly soon. >> of course, critics say, look what she did is she poured water
on the trump rally to make it look bad. >> there's another side to this county. it means that if you save money, not invest in the stock market, that you save money, go to the bank, get a bank book cd, savings account or a bond, you are going to get a much better rate of return. for ten years you got nothing if you saved money. now, you are going to start to get something. that's an important switch. >> and an healthy economy doesn't have zero% interest rates. >> that's right. in the big picture, the health of the patient goes up when rates go up. >> when rates go up, it's a signal that the economy is strengthening. investors run this economy now. not janet yellen. >> so for the vast viewing audience and many of them have bonds or 401(k)s or stuff like that, this is good news. shouldn't they have done this a long time ago? >> the news is improving.
yes, janet yellen should have raised rates some time ago. >> so you are saying she's been wrong throughout her tenure and she's wrong again? >> that is my opinion, yes. >> she should be replaced? >> should donald trump go in and say you are fired? >> i don't know about that. i don't know what donald trump wants to do with the federal reserve but her term of office overlaps the first term of president-elect's office. >> he could fire her. >> he could fire her, but that is -- >> that's big. trumpian. >> you got me in a corner here. >> that would indeed. >> i call cavuto. >> you wouldn't call me. >> i call stuart varney. >> you can't is have a guy with a british accent as the chair of the federal reserve. >> thank you very much. we'll be watching you in an hour and 40 minutes. democrats are freaking out that one of their own may flip for trump.
stream some stuff! somewhere! sometimes! you totally nailed that buddy. simple. don't let directv now limit your entertainment. only xfinity gives you more to stream to any screen. some headlines for you this morning. there's a bench honoring our veterans sparking outrage on it. why? because it has the word "god" on it. they say it violates the constitution. they are asking them not to use christmas or holiday apparently. they are not politically correct enough. other tips, no red or green sugar cookies, santa symbols or rudolph. >> okay. meanwhile, let's bring in
senator joe manchin from the great state of west virginia. he joins us from charleston in west virginia. good morning to you. >> hey, good morning, everybody. >> great to have you. >> good to be with you. >> i was a little hurt, you were two blocks away and didn't come by. we're getting over it. you had a chance to visit trump tower. what did you think of donald trump when you finally got a chance to meet him? what was it like? can you bring some color to the meeting? >> it was enjoyable. i was honored to be asked and be considered. we had a great conversation. talk about my state of west virginia. talk about the economy of my state and how coal has been ravaged and everything we've done and he understands that he wants to make some changes and i think we can make some really -- some good progressive changes that will help our country. it was very good. i met steve bannon. i had a nice conversation. enjoyed talking to him. i met his daughter, ivanka, a beautiful young lady and jared sat in on the meeting and reince
priebus was there. we had a real productive meeting. it was something. very engaging. i think very, very encouraging. >> they were talking to you and according to the press you were being considered for secretary of energy. a job that has now gone to former governor of texas, rick perry. >> uh-huh. >> first of all, is rick perry a good choice for that? some on the political left have said, you know, given the fact that he's a big fossil fuel guy, he's not a good guy for that, but he's done a lot with renewable energy, senator? >> yeah. and i know rick and i like rick. we've been friends for quite some time. we were governors together and governors really form bonds, okay, and that's what's really great. we form relationships. rick has the experience to run an organization and agency and that's really what it takes. he's been the longest-serving governor of texas. he understands it coming from an energy state. we might agree to disagree on a few things, but basically you got to look for a pathway
forward. so i think he has all the ability to do that job. he will go through the vetting proc confirmation, which is thorough and in depth, and he will be able to explain his position. i believe that 7 billion on planet earth have had an impact to a certain extent, so i'm not a denier, but i would also ask people on the other end of the spectrum, i hope you are not a denier either because i'll tell you there will be more fossil fuel, be coal and natural gas and oil used in the world than probably ever before. so we have to find a pathway forward and a balance, and some people just deny on both ends. so we'll see how that goes, but rick has all the ability. he has the quality and capability of doing the job. absolutely. >> senator, what about all the democrats in congress and senate? what are they saying? what are they saying about you meeting with donald trump? >> well, you know, everybody had
their concerns, i would say. the bottom line is i -- i'm a proud american like most of us in this great country, and whether you voted for donald trump or not, he has been elected through the process that we have, that we cherish. he's our president-elect. he will be our president. i want him to be successful. my job as a senator is to do everything i can to help him. if i do disagree, respectfully disagree, i'm not calling people names. i'm not basically trashing their ideas. i might think there's a better path forward. i'll do that in a productive manner. my job is going to be in the senate democrat caucus is working with all of my republican friends and leaders, trying to find a pathway forward so we can have at least eight or ten democrats support reasonable policies. that's what we should be doing. >> senator, are you going to stay a democrat? >> i've said this, absolutely.
here's the thing. that's my identity as a democrat. my brand is being very, very independent. i look at something. if i can come home and explain it to my friends and my colleagues and all of my people in west virginia, then i'm fine. i don't care whether it's a democrat or a republican idea. so the bottom line is i'm just working and trying to make this place work. my identity being a democrat or your identity being republican should not interfere with us being an american, and i don't know why people get all bent up on that. i think i can do an awful lot of good and i can be a lot of help. i believe working right where i am. i'm comfortable. i'm a west virginia democrat. i don't agree with a lot of my washington democrat policies, but again i have a lot of republican west virginians that don't agree with a lot of national republicans either. you know what, that's what makes this great, makes this country great. >> yes, indeed. joe manchin, senator from the great state of west virginia. in a very christmassy-looking
neck tie. thank you for joining us. >> thank you all. always nice to be with you and people in west virginia love you all. >> thank you very much. >> thank you so much, senator. coming up, 22 years ago today, a passenger and first responders pulled off the impossible after a plane slammed into a canyon. >> he told me that it was a freezing night. he doesn't know how he survived. he doesn't know how he made it, but he sure didn't want to spend another night here. >> the passenger who was hurt hiked for seven hours to get safe -- to save the pilot's life, i should say and to save his own life. coming up next, the first responders, the pilot and the passenger reunite here for the first time since that day. it is a "fox & friends" exclusive. >> that is excellent. so much for the affordable care act. more bad news for obamacare and how much it's costing, but you might know already. ♪

i read that the democratic national committee was actually hacked because one of its directors clicked on a fake email to change his password. which gave russia access to his account. and then hillary said i can't believe you would be so careless with your email. come on, hey! wake up! >> you need to be smart like me and have your own server in a basement surrounded by secret service guys. >> that was jimmy fallon last night. meanwhile, heather nauert now. >> hey, brian. good morning, everybody. i hope you are off to a good day. a couple news headlines to bring you right now. a third trial could be in the future for a dramatic murder-for-hire case.
now on house arrest after a judge declared a mistrial in the case. she's accused of hiring a hitman to kill her husband in boyton beach, florida. that would be killer would be a undercover cop. police staged a murder scene and told her her husband was dead. >> no, no, no. >> so the newest twist is she claims this was all an act for a reality tv show? prosecutors are promising to take her back to court. heads up, today is your last day to enroll in obamacare for 2017 and it's going to cost you billions of dollars, america. there's a new study that shows taxpayers will fork over nearly $43 billion to cover double digit premium hikes. that's about $10 billion more than last year. for you, that means about $76
more every single month. the findings come as president-elect donald trump vows to repeal and replace obamacare. >> and this is perhaps the best story of the day. this is exactly what hard work looks like. a photo of a chick fail lay employee -- chick-fil-a employee wearing a sling and a neck brace. he had been in a serious car crash and went back to work days after. when a customer asked him why he wasn't at home recovering? he said he had a very good reason. >> he didn't want to let his team down by not calling in and not showing up but he also wanted to use the money for christmas presents and be able to feed the homeless as well. >> wow. well, that very customer set up a go fund me page to help. the goal started at $2,500. it now stands at more than $20,000. since we've shared his story just in the last hour and a half, he's gained over $1,000. if you want to spread the christmas cheer, go to go fund
me and search for fund-raiser for jakeem tyler. it's almost $23,000. get ready for this. it was a rescue that's nothing short of a miracle. remember this. >> linda is landing the sheriff's department helo. electrocardiogram is good. no arrhythmias, blood pressure has been holding up. he told me it's been a freezing night. he doesn't know how he survived. doesn't know how he made it. he didn't want to spend another night here. >> he didn't. after nathan's plane crashed into a california mountain side, his fellow pilot covered him with a tarp to keep him warm. hiked five miles and seven hours to get help. one day later, first responders
rescued him. now the victims and first responders are responding for the first time exclusively for us on "fox & friends." meet the pilot, nathan, who was the pilot with a broken back. jim was the co-pilot who went for help. and together they made it happen. nathan, first off, what was happening that day to set up the crash? >> really, it was just jim and i having a little bit of fun. we were pilots at the same airline at the time and he wanted to go out and have a little fun for me in my dad's airplane. it was very lacksdaisical. >> then you crashed. it was into a valley, correct? >> it was a common thing to
happen when you take a midwestern pilot and with no mountain experience. mistakes got made and we were out there and didn't have any idea what would happen. we were in a remote area. >> nathan, you had a broken back. it's time for jim to get help. >> that's correct. >> what did you do? >> well, after everything settled down, i was able to -- i had to get him out of the airplane and secure the airplane so that there was no risk of a fire, and then dragged him as far away from the airplane as i could, but he was in so much pain that i didn't want to drag him too far then i covered him up with a tarp that was in the cargo compartment, and i started walking, just started hiking downhill. >> and then to do that, you finally found a small town. is it true it took you sech hours and you got to that town,
what did you do? >> yeah. it was a seven-hour hike in the dark. the sun was setting just as we hit the ground, and so it was in the dark with a full moon luckily, and just kind of followed the bottom of the canyon certain pen -- certain p pen. waited for the crews to show up. >> you don't even know if your buddy is still alive, that's where you guys come in. linda, when were you aware what you had on your hands here? >> we were called out early that morning. we were the on duty shift. we had to launch at first day break because of the area that they had gone into, it would have been a bit treacherous to fly. john and i launched and went to the general area we knew and based on some of the information that jim had given us, john was able to get us pretty close to the area and then we began our search. >> amazing, because the sun setting, never been there
before. you had to remember where you were to help your friend who is freezing and in a lot of pain. so, john, you get in the chopper and you head for help. what can you find? how long did it take you to find nathan and what did you find when you got there? >> well, you know, initially, we go into that area, it's a popular hiking area, up there, i'm sorry. it's a popular hiking area. so i knew the area fairly well, but it's a huge area to start searching in, but fortunately jim came up with this -- with the word stonehouse. there is an old stonehouse down at the bottom of the canyon, and we responded to the stonehouse and started going up the canyon, and saw the airplane. linda got me to a spot where she could let me off so i could walk up there and i was -- i was hoping for the best, but expecting the worst.
and i hollered out for nathan and he answered, which was awesome. got up to him. >> and then? >> i got up to him and we started talking and, yeah, he was in a great deal of pain. it was uncomfortable for me to see how much pain he was in, i really couldn't do anything for him other than basic first aid and to keep him immobile so he didn't do any more damage to his back. >> and ron, what about you? when you got to him, what did you see? >> my helicopter was not in service that day. i work for the state police, the highway patrol, and all of a sudden i arrived at work and the -- linda was landing her helicopter out in front of my office, and then i was very quickly told to change into an aviation uniform and get some
equipment and we were going to rescue a pilot that had crashed into the mountains, i had never met linda or john or flown in that particular aircraft until that morning. >> so when you finally got involved, you realized your pilot had survived, didn't sleep at all through serve hours of the cold with a broken back. what did you think? after this moment in your life, how did your life change? >> my life changed an awful lot for the worst very quickly and came back up and became something that i never would have imagined it would be because i didn't have any idea how supportive everyone around me was going to be. i had a long night out there. it was longer than seven hours and i was just in really total despair the entire time. i was pretty certain my career was over. i was certain i would be fired. i was certain i would be ostracized by my friends. i was in despair.

so did president-elect donald trump demand an apology from mitt romney in order for mitt to become secretary of state? >> cnn said yes but we just blew the lid off of that one, right, brian? >> you are right, ainsley. "fox & friends" weekend co-host abby huntsman said not so fast. >> we all wanted to know what happened about mitt romney. supporters and critics were baffled as trump wined and dined
mitt romney. remember this. >> we had a candidate that didn't work like he should have worked. the guy is a stone cold loser. he choked. when you are a choker, you can never give them a second chance. >> donald trump is a phony, a fraud. his promises are as worthless as a degree from trump university. >> oh, romney turn out to be on the losing end of that argument. a new report by cnn claims that mr. trump and his transition team required an apology in order to hire him. well, romney never gave that apology at least publicly but moments ago kellyanne conway telling us mr. trump never made such an apology demand. >> i've never been in any conversation, any meeting where somebody said that was a consideration of him being secretary of state, if that were true, perhaps he wouldn't have been invited in the first place. he was invited because the president-elect wanted to interview him for the position of secretary of state. >> despite those reports, it's unclear how the campaign feud

at trump tower and wrapping it up tonight at another thank you tour. this one, you'll see on fox. he will be in pennsylvania. >> now, yesterday, the president-elect hitting the reset button with silicon valley but missing at the table twitter. >> peter doocy is live at washington, d.c. with what we can expect from the transition team today. hello, mr. doocy. >> hello. since it's 8:00, the lobby at trump tower is open now. we should be seeing the guests heading up to see trump any minute. we understand he's close to completing his cabinet. >> this is a very donald trump project, isn't it, the cabinet, under budget and ahead of schedule. we were ahead of the pass presidents of the past 40, 50 years. each of these positions is a result of any number of interviews, very qualified, capable men and women, all of whom have come in about 90 strong now have met with the president-elect and the vice president-elect. it's been an incredible
opportunity for all of us to even witness because they come in and they share their vision and their ideas and their experiences and they want to help. >> yesterday, more than a dozen heavy hitters from silicon valley visited trump tower for a 90-minute meeting. google was there, facebook was there, apple was there. all thing the president-elect has called out for different things over the last couple of months. they ended up getting complimented in a conference room where the president-elect pledged to help them make more money here in the states. >> nobody like you in the world, in the world. there's nobody like the people in this room, and anything we can do to help we'll be there, you'll call your people, call me. no formal chain of command around here. >> twitter did not get an invite to that meeting. the trump team says they just aren't as big as other companies represented there and if you look ahead to this evening, the
thank you tour is continuing at the giant center in the sweetest place on earth, hershey, pennsylvania. back to you in new york. >> i saw something on politico yesterday that said twitter was not invited because during the campaign the trump team tried to get them to install an emoji representing crooked hillary with little bags of cash. was that true? >> that is based on what somebody from the trump digital team wrote on the blog site medium but that's not why they say. they say twitter did not get invited because you are not big enough. if you are twitter, what would you prefer? you didn't help someone put a crooked hillary hash tag or you are not as big as facebook? >> so lose, lose. >> so facebook is bigger than twitter? >> oh, yeah. by a lot. thank you at pdoocy.
>> if you want to follow him. >> he also has a twitter handle for his hair, what's that one? >> peter, are you still there? somebody started -- >> do you want to text him? >> i think it's -- what is the name of your twitter site for your hair that somebody started? >> it's not my twitter site for my hair but somebody did start one. i think if you just search peter doocy hair. >> i think it's ham -- amber waves of mane. >> very patriotic. let's talk about something i find unbelievably embarrassing and then disturbing, that is this trumped up look at russia's involvement, real or unreal, in this election. if you really want to get to the bottom of a russian hacking or leaking, you don't do it right before the elect tors are about to cast their vote december 19th. you do a lot of that work behind closed doors. you do a thorough investigation.
you don't rush if you are the sitting president of the united states who avoided look agent this when he heard about it in 2015, september. when you are the president of the united states, you don't try to rush out a result in the last few week of your regime. that's how i feel. josh earnest said this yesterday. i thought this was over the top. >> the republican nominee himself calling on russia to hack his opponent. it might be an indication that he was obviously aware and concluded, based on whatever facts or sources he was -- he had available to him -- that russia was involved. the republican nominee chose a campaign chair that had extensive, lucrative, personal, financial ties to the kremlin. and it was obvious to those who were covering the race that the hack and leak strategy that had been operationalized was not being equally applied to the two parties. >> there's no evidence that
that -- that russia was involved in the election. the cia said there could be a link to russia but several of the intelligence agencies are not on the same page. the house -- the house intelligence committee said let's have a briefing today on this thursday. let's get representatives from all the intelligence agencies into one room and we're going to drill them. we're going to ask them questions about why they think russia is involved. do you know they all said we're coming to the briefing which makes us believe we don't have the facts, the evidence. if russia is involved. we all want to know. >> look, russia didn't impact the election to turn wisconsin red or michigan or those other states. this is just a media invention. fake news, you be the judge about that. >> they were not happy with the election results. >> just look at josh earnest himself. shortly after the election he was at the same podium where there he was trashing donald trump but within the last month, there he was, saying, no evidence that russia did
anything. >> fbi agrees with that. dni agrees with that. >> kellyanne conway said this about that, but his comments were deplorable. >> that is just remarkable. that's breath taking. i guess he's odd igsing as to be a political pundit. that's incredibly disappoint. he essentially stated that the president-elect had knowledge of this, maybe even fanned the flames. it's incredibly irresponsible and i wonder if his boss, president obama agrees. >> and he does. he mentioned the other day on the daily show, even the candidate had brought up that maybe hillary clinton should be hacked. it was a sarcastic remark made after an hour long press conference in which he said -- he was outraged that 30,000 emails were deleted and not submitted and it was a sarcastic remark. it was hey, russia, why don't you go find the 30,000 emails
that she deleted? i went to scranton personally because we were in philadelphia to interview donald trump. i asked him that. he said i was being sarcastic. if you watch his appearances for the last two years, you know he can be sarcastic. >> he was making a joke, clearly. if the cia says there could be some evidence, if they have some earth-shattering evidence that russia did this, they have an obligation to tell the american people. they were given the opportunity to go in front of the house intelligence committee and they decline. >> and mr. brennan that runs the cia who said there could be a possible link was appointed by president obama. >> the cia and department of state is filled with democrats. i've got folks in washington who feel they are orchestrating this brouhaha simply because they hate donald trump. first it was the recall. that didn't work. now, it is the whole russia thing, and that's not working either. >> by the way, there are also
cia men and women who are watching in iraq, afghanistan, and syria. we know how great work you do for little money. at the higher levels, there might be politics involved. real quick, one of the things donald trump is going to do quickly is name a supreme court nominee to replace justice scalia, within the first week. >> one of guys who has written one of donald trump's speeches is stephen miller. he has been named a senior policy adviser. here's the kind of guy or gal who trump will appoint as a supreme court justice. >> are we going to get originals on the court? >> that's one of the first thing going to happen, we're going through the cabinet process right now, next is supreme court. we have a list of 20 judges. we work with federal society. >> we got it down to four. >> the names are names people are going to love who believe the constitution should be
interpreted as it was intended. >> so originalist is someone who believes what the original meaning of the constitution or what it was supposed to be like scalia. >> somebody in the mold of scalia or clarence thomas. >> not merrick garland. >> apparently not. >> they had a list of 20 and sean said i talked to the camp and they are down to 4. >> shortly after he is made president of the united states, after the inauguration, we will hear that name. >> heather nauert will be there as well. >> have you got your dress? >> no, not yet. that's the big one. important news for you. if you are living in north carolina, there is a massive manhunt that is intensifying at this hour for an escaped inmail believed to be very armed and dangerous. police in fayetteville say this this man, edward moore jr was being treated at a hospital when he assaulted an officer, swiped his taser and escaped through
