12:00 pm
we will follow his legacy to us to travel farther in space. john glenn received many accolades, but his true measure is taken not in awards but in the respect he still commands on both end of the political spectrum. by the large shadow he cast on our entire endeavor, to travel farther into the solar system and by the bright flame of his inspiration which continues to illuminate our way. godspeed, john glenn, and thank you. we will never forget you. ♪ >> i decided it was time to go
12:01 pm
and do some other things. thought about politics and government work sometimes, but i had no idea that i ever would be able to do that myselfment you know, i thought about that since i was a kid. i was proud of my combat service i'd had in world war ii and in korea. proud of the test work i had done, being able to contribute an orbital flight. if i wasn't able to continue that area, where could i do the best and do the best for the country. that's where i decided to run for public office. if you're interested in the senate or across the breadth and depth of everything in this country. >> when john glenn was 10-years-old, his father, vaa
12:02 pm
veteran of world war i, taught him how to play "taps" on the bugle. they'd play together memorial day in new concord, small flags and flowers next now grave sites, gravestones of the fallen. and john would recall that time and feeling when he said, where love of country was a given, defense of its ideals was an ob obligation, and the opportunity to join in his conquests and explorations was a challenge not only to fulfill a sacred duty but to join a joyous adventure. with john, all the years i knew him and worked with him, it was always a joyous adventure. annie, what a joyous adventure you and john had together, on display for your children and the whole world to see. you all know it. you can tell when a couple really genuinely loves and enjoys one another. it was infectious.
12:03 pm
on behalf of president obama and the first lady and behalf of the american people, jill and i are here because we love you, annie, and we loved john. and together, you taught us all how to love. that's not something you usually talk about when you talk about heroes, especially heroes like john glenn, who lived a life that was rigorous but tinged with just a little bit of magic. just a little bit of magic. we talk about daring spirit, toughness under pressure, mental and physical toughness. for all his heroism that history will remember in war, in space, in public life, he feyou felt something deeper with john. annie, on the way to get to air force 2, i got a call from john kerry who's somewhere over the
12:04 pm
atlantic on the way to another mission in the middle east trying to deal with yemen. he told me about his time he got to spend with you a couple days ago and the family. he pointed out, he said, "joe, you know, john's only the ninth born in history in the state of ohio to ever lie in state." "governor, i didn't know that." "only the ninth in history." he said that -- he talked about how much it meant to him to be with you. and he governor spontaneously what i think is maybe the best description of john glenn i've ever heard, and i knew john for 40 years. he said, john came out of the heart of the country like you kids do, and he stole america's heart. he came out of the heart of the country and stole america's
12:05 pm
heart. and he did. he stole america's heart. i remember as a kid, freshman in college, and john's historic flight. and annie, you and john and jill and i have been friends for 40 years. i know others have longer relationships, but what a wonderful 40 years it's been. we served in the senate together side by side for 25 years, and we traveled around the world together. john was one of the happiest people i ever knew. think about it -- one of the happiest people i ever knew. he had that infectious smile. even when things looked like everything was crashing down, john would walk into my office or walk into a earthquakes that big smile on his face, and i'd wonder, where in the hell has he been. [ laughter ] did he not just hear what i just heard? you think i'm kidding.
12:06 pm
i'm not kidding. but the world knew, revered, and respected john. from columbus to cambodia, from washington to beijing. he loved being a senator. he loved his constituents and his colleagues. he loved his staff, many of whom are here today, and boy, do they love him back. and you can feel his love for his country and state and for the marine corps. he even was kind of partial to nasa. most especially, he had love for you, annie, and dave and lynne and his grandchildren. all of you, all you had to do, as i said, was see john and annie just walk together. just the way they looked at each other. and you knew that's what it's supposed to be like. i said that to annie today before we came in. she said, that's like you and
12:07 pm
jill. i said, no, it's different. everybody knows i love jill more than she loves me. [ laughter ] i think you loved him just as much. the last time we were together when jill and i had -- had annie and john over to the vice president's residence was -- i was looking at the picture this morning of you guys walking down the steps, walking out to the gate, and jill and i behind you. and the words of the poet christopher marlo literally came to mind. and i had to rewrite this on the way in the plane. christopher marlo said, come with me and be my love, and all the pleasures we shall prove.
12:08 pm
together annie, you and john proved all the plshs. you not only had a minimum wage cal love affair. the other thing about you, you were partners. you were partners. together you bore the weight of fame and responsibility with enormous humility. in a sense of duty that defined you as the greatest of america's greatest generation. i think john defined what it meant to be american, what it meant to be an american. what we were about. just by how he acted. it was always about promise, we were a country of possibilities, opportunity, always a belief in tomorrow, tomorrow. when john was to the house a couple years ago, that's all he kept talking about is what are we going to do now, joe, what
12:09 pm
are we going to do tomorrow? we have all of these opportunities. together, you and john taught us that a good life is built not on a single historic act or multiple acts of heroism but in a thousand little things. a thousand little things have built character. treating everyone with dignity and respect. john was one of the few of might have colleagues when we'd go into a restroom where there's a shoe shine guy, john would always pat him on the shoulder and give him a hug. understanding that despite fame and position, everybody was john's equal. everybody was john's equal in his mind. it all comes down to being personable. the president always kids me, annie, because i -- i'm getting old enough now that i could even
12:10 pm
try to improve on tip o'neill's admonition about all politics is local. i don't think john would agree that either. i think he thought all politics is personal. it's all personal. it all comes down to being personal. to being there for family and being there for friends in good times and in bad times. like you and john were there for me and jill when i was in the hospital. you were there for us when our son was deployed, and you were there when we buried him. it's all about being personal. annie, you and john as was mentioned earlier by the first speaker were -- i happened to be with ethel kennedy at an awards ceremony in new york, the ripple of hope ceremony.
12:11 pm
and i was ironically a fellow who runs my office who's an ohio guy said john wasn't doing well. you ought to call john. i had a brief discussion with ethel as i sat with her. and the story is well known him b him ta -- about him talking to the kids, being sent back to hickory hill. what struck me is i was told that when you and john got to hickory hill, john walked in to senator kennedy's private study and saw that robert kennedy, the only political rival i ever had in my life, had out a book of ralph waldo emerson's poetry. it was opened up, and a leaff the book there in the margins were comments made by robert
12:12 pm
kennedy. and the passage that john, i'm told, remembered was where emerson said, this time like all times is a very good one if we but know what to do with it. the thing that i liked most about john was he knew from his upbringing that ordinary americans could do extraordinary things. ordinary americans do extraordinary things. and he believed, i believe, he was confident that every successful, every successive generation would know what to do with it. and that's the charge i think john left us, annie. to join our nation's conquests and our nation's explorations as
12:13 pm
a challenge not only to fulfill a sacred duty now join in this joyous adventure. so marines, when the marines play "taps" on the bugle at arlington for our friend, we can look deep into the heavens and know with certitude that john believed and was right that future generations of americans will also look deep within the heavens and understand how to explore, how to serve, how to love. and we'll come to understand that if we're looking for a message to send about our time here on earth, what it means to be an american, it's the life of john glenn. and that is is not hyperbole. so god bless you, john.

12:17 pm
jesus answered, "the first is hero israel. the lord our god, the lord is one, you shall love the lord your god with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind and with all your strength." the second is this, you shall love your neighbor as yourself. there is no other commandment greater than these. >> a reading from the letter of paul to the phillippians.

12:19 pm
of what i'm trying to pass on now to others with our school here. how do you inspire citizenship, how do you make our young people get a feeling of priced and community and faith and country to where they're willing to go out and engage in political activity? those are the kinds of things that i hope we can instill in people not only here in ohio but maybe across the country. ♪ ♪
12:20 pm
>> this is crowd. to all of you who came here today, thank you so very, very much. it means a lot to our family. we really were not ready to say good-bye to him yet. his mind was sharp as a tax, but his body was failing him. and this had to be. i'm going to speak about my father from the perspective of being his son, but i've had a huge amount. difficulty deciding what to say about him. in the end, i just sdiefded to go with the things i'll tell you about today because they're really stuck in my head and my heart. i'll start off talking about some of his memories, and then i'll share some of my memories of him.
12:21 pm
i can't really say for sure what made him the way he was, but he was born in a happy home with two parents who loved him deeply, and he grew up in a classic american small town, new concord, ohio, where he could adventure and explore to his heart's content. there was a terrific community spirit there focused around church and school and town activities. he told us lots of stories about his friends and my mother, annie. in particular, he never forgot the effect of the great depression on new concord. when he was a kid, late one night, he overheard his parents talking about how they were going to lose their home if they couldn't make any more payments on their mortgage. then one of fdr's new deal public works programs to improve
12:22 pm
rural plumbing helped my grandfather's struggling plumbing business get off the ground, and that saved their home. dad worked in that business as a teenager measuring and cutting pipes, and he was really proud of being a really good pipe cutter. he just told me about that earlier this year. the potential for government to do good was something that he never forgot. this is not an abstract concept to him. this was real life. here are more memories from this early period of his life that he shared with us many times. as little kid, he'd load some r rhubarb from their rhubarb patch into the wagon and go door to door to make some extra money. he did the same thing with horseradish and liked to eat them both. he had a paper route, and he worked in summers as a dishwasher at a summer camp. and he played trumpet in the town band. my grandmother loved poetry, and
12:23 pm
she had him learn poems that he could recite by heart until the end of his life. and he also wrote some of his own poems. all these stories that he told bus his growing up years now feel like gifts that he left us. now rear are some things that i remember about my life with my father. he loved science. when i was a kid, i remember him drawing -- bear with me a bit. i remember him drawing me diagrams to explain how the shape of an airplane's wing would create lift as air flowed over it. and this had something -- this had to do with something called bernouli's principle. and the space program, of course, was a huge passion. when i was a teenager, hey spent a lot of time before his mercury flight going through all his manuals with me and exping all the backup systems that were hopefully going to keep him
12:24 pm
alive if something went wrong. he had also learned how to identify lots of stars in nasa, and he taught those to us when we were kids. we'd lay out in the yard at night with a blanket while he pointed them out. here's another story. i was in my middle 20s back in 1971, an interesting time. i went to visit my parents, hadn't seen them for a while. hair was down to my shoulders. leather head thong around my head, a little bit different from now. bellbottoms. the whole bit. i hadn't seen them for a while, as i said, i walked into the house, and what i remember is i think he might have blinked twice, or his face twitched or something of that sort. that was about -- that was it. and he was only five or six years retired from being a colonel in the marine corps. he must have made some wise cracks at the time, but it was clear that he accepted me as i was. he really gave me freedom to
12:25 pm
find my way in life, to learn -- to learn my lessons and make my own mistakes. he loved being outdoors, especially in the colorado rockies. he loved taking his jeep up really crummy back roads and bouncing around for hours, and the rest of us found that a little less enjoyable. [ laughter ] i would get cursed. once i was with him in wyoming sitting by a glassy smooth wilderness lake, and along came two wild trumpeter swans flying low across the lake. so three their wing tips made -- so low that their wing tips made little ripples along the water with every wing beat. this is a golden memory that i have of growing up with him. he was a lifelong jogger. then when that was too hard on
12:26 pm
his knees, he'd go for daily walks. he did that up until the last two months. often just walking back and forth in their condo when he'd become too weak. he loved to ski. the last time he skied he was about 85, if you can imagine that. i was there. he was with my wife and i, and. he made the best turns that i had ever seen him make. and i've never, ever been able to figure that out. he he aggravated some arthritis in one of his knees and had to give it up. one of our most beloved family traditions the last 40 years was to gather in the mountains every year at christmas time. we'd bundle up, adults, grandkids, and dogs, get a permit from the forest service, and then take an axe and drive
12:27 pm
out into the national forest and find a christmas tree. after we had the tree, we'd build a fire following his careful instructions about creating little chimneys -- i order him sai that a thousand times -- [ laughter ] for the planes to follow, and pretty soon we'd have a roaring fire to cook hot dogs and baked beans, heat up the baked beans in, and roast marshmallows to make s'mores. sometimes it wasn't much above zero. he loved those times being huddled around the campfire. some other things he liked, having a barbecue pit. cooking steaks over charcoal was one of his real specialties. medium rare was the way he liked it. making hot buttered rum on special occasions. corn on the cob dripping with butter, catchup, his flavoring of choice on virtually everything. [ laughter ] singing with his great tenor voice, always ready to harmonize, barber shop quartets,
12:28 pm
teaching my sons to drive his riding mower, reading absolutely everything. he had piles of magazines on every subject. round tables. he loved round tables because he felt that they brought everyone into the conversation. watching westerns with his grandkids, and he had a special weakness for chipmunks and especially hummingbirds, he loved hummingbirds. he and my mom loved to travel. in the summer of 2013 when he was 92 and mom was 93, they decided to go on a huge roadtrip. all we knew was that they were heading west. a few days after they had started this trip, they called to say hello, and they said they were -- they were sitting in their car which had been loaded up to a flatbed aaa truck because they'd had a flat tire
12:29 pm
and their spare tire was defective. so they and their car were being transferred off to a town 25 miles away. it turns out they were somewhere in the texas panhandle, and it was 105, 106 degrees. this is the punch line of this story from them. roasting hot. they were sitting in their car on top of this flatbed truck with their think in running in the car so they could have the air conditioning running the whole time and not roast themselves. [ laughter ] they were all excited about this adventure. they got the tire fixed, and they continued on. this is 2013, not that long ago. later on in the same trip, they called up again, and they had just finished a two-mile hike in arch's national park using their walking sticks. this is right at the end of the summer. then near the end of this trip, they called up again from some little town in colorado where they were sitting in a restaurant, and there was a freak thunderstorm going on that had caused a flash flood, and
12:30 pm
water was coming under the front door of the restaurant. no end of adventure. am i right, mom? i mean, this is -- [ laughter ] they loved that trip. i could go on indefinitely with my memories of him. by-law struck me as most important is how much he cares about not just the people in his life, his family and his friends, but about people in general. he was enormously considerate. he loved and cared for other people, and they sent that love and care back to him. he treated everyone, cab drivers to presidents, with the same respect and interest. of all the experiences of his life, nothing was more important to him than of having in a band of brothers. being in a group of people like the marine corps, who were more afraid of failing their comrades than of -- of losing their own
12:31 pm
lives. beginning with his very first mission in world war ii, as jack daly told us earlier tonight, this afternoon. again in over the years, he lost a group of frentz, some in combat, some in accidents. and he never entirely got over those losses, it choked him up to talk about it. i'll finish with one more very recent memory. and this really happened. my wife and i were visiting my parents this last october, back on october 18th. we had just finished eating dinner with them, were and we were sitting after dinner with them at their condo in columbus -- round dinner table. he liked the round table. we were talking and kngot on th subject of neil armstrong, the astronaut. and dad was remembering being at nee neil's 80th birthday party. he remembered hitt hm playing
12:32 pm
"september" on the piano and neil singing this. then at the table with us back on october 18th, at their round table, my father began to quietly sing and sang the whole song to us, to my mother and my wife and i because we happened to be sitting there with him. but it felt like he was really singing this to everybody in his life that he cared about. and this is what he sang to us -- though it's a long, long while from may to december, but the days grow short. when you reach september. when the autumn weather turns leaves to flame, one hasn't got time for waiting game. when the days dwindle down to a precious few, september, november, and these two precious days i'll spend with you, these precious days i'll spend with you.
12:33 pm
>> like my brother said, we're so grateful that all of you are here. and when dave and i were planning this time for our father, one thing we wanted was for there to be friends, not the people who didn't know dad, but the people who really knew him. and i think, i hope that you're able to hear that president drake, charlie, can use the name jack, and -- that these people
12:34 pm
are our friends and have known dad in all the different parts of his life. and mr. bolden, of course, i didn't -- jack and charlie. and someone has been mentioned a couple of times, and i would be remiss if i didn't say this, that our lives were intertwined with a wonderful family, the kennedy family. and when ethel and robert wanted to come today, it was a tremendous, it had tremendous meaning for us. thank you, thank you, thank you, ethel and bobby. those memories are beyond heartache and joy. thank you so much for being here for dad and mother. i would also be remiss if i didn't thank -- i certainly am not going to list them, but in order to -- dad died about nine
12:35 pm
days ago. and in the period of time from his death to today, there have been a group of people who have come together with unbelievable love, strength, support, and energy to celebrate him. they knew him well,nd they absolutely made this day possible, this time possible. when we were going to the funeral home to say dad's body, i knew i wanted to write something to put in the casket. i started writing my letter to him. and as i wrote it, i realize d that i was actually writing what i wanted to say to all of you. so this is a letter -- this is
12:36 pm
the letter i started. so you'll hear me refer to him as my father. many people have mentioned, of course, february 20th, 1962. from that i do this, people have come up to me and said, gosh, what a life. john glenn's your father. he's a hero. what's that like to have a hero for a father? and from the very first time i think that i was asked that, i thought about it and said, he's -- he's just my dad. you have been my teacher, my nemesis -- yes -- [ laughter ] my singing partner, you tenor, me melody, and my source -- i'll
12:37 pm
just ask dad. you taught me to parallel park a car, tie knots, tie a necktie and slide a car on ice. [ laughter ] you recommended i memorize my social security number, and i learned from you westerns are a high form of entertainment, and the white hats always win. and he had two. when you and mother married, had you told her, "i can't promise you much, but i can promise life won't be boring." in time, dave and i lived that promise, too. life with you, dad, was never boring. world war ii, korea, the speed run in project bullet, name that tune, test pilot to nasa and friendship 7, four terms in the
12:38 pm
u.s. senate -- >> we're going to break away from the coverage there. a very poignant service is taking place right now in ohio for astronaut and senator john glenn.course, an american icon, an american original who passed away last week at the age of 95. you heard there from vice president joe biden who was very emotional, along with members of glenn's family, his daughter and son paying their tributes to this remarkable man who touched so many lives and will be forever remembered as being one of the great leaders in american history. now moving on to other news in this fox alert. the trump thank you tour continues with one final stop
12:39 pm
for the president-elect who's getting set to meet thousands of supporters in mobile, alabama. he will take to the stage around 4:00 p.m. eastern. and at that time, he will be greeting many of his supporters. it was the scene of one of his largest campaign rallies during the election. a football stadium in mobile. we're going to take you there when it happens. stay tuned for that. and president obama and the first family arriving in hawaii this morning to begin their 17-day christmas holiday vacation. this after the president took part in his final news conference of the year with the russian hacking controversy dominating the conversation with white house reporters. the president blaming russia's president vladimir putin for the cyberattacks during the u.s. presidential campaign. and vowing payback. >> what i can tell you is that the intelligence that i've seen gives me great confidence in their assessment that the russians carried out this hack.
12:40 pm
the hack of the dnc and the hack of john podesta. >> certainly the story is generating all kinds of reaction. let's bring in lieutenant colonel tony schaefer, senior fellow at the london policy for research, and retired intelligence operative, along with ambassador james woolsey who is the former director of the cia and a senior advisor to president-elect trump. welcome, gentlemen, great to see both of you. ambassador woolsey, let me begin with you. as a former head of the cia, do you believe the hard-working men and women within that agency have been engaging in partisan actions when it comes to intelligence gathering? and in this situation, part of an effort to delegitimize president-elect trump before he's sworn in? >> i think that they are working on what they've been asked to work on. i don't have any quarrel with the individual members, fine members of that great agency.
12:41 pm
but i'm a little confused about why we have so much public commentary from the heads of that agency and other places in washington on these issues. when something happens like being hacked or other oppressive measures against democracy, the -- russians, by the way, do this all the time. they call it spreading disinformation or lies. and i think that it's important for us to realize that they do it in a very nasty way, but we do something ourselves, look back on the visit of maybe netanyahu here to washington and look at the way the obama administration treated him. it wasn't neutral. so there are things that we do that i'm frankly not that pleased with either. >> colonel schaefer, the
12:42 pm
president says he handled the russian hack back in october. he's accused the media of amplifying it and said he told mr. putin back then to "cut it out." russia is denying any hacking activity and says if it happened, you have to prove it. well, if we were aware of russia's hacks months ago, why is the white house just now expressing huge outrage about in and saying that russia tried to influence the outcome of our presidential election? >> president putin -- that's humorous. i think that president obama probably poured some gas in the fire by saying what he did. let's be clear on. this as jim was saying, nobody has quarrel with cia -- the intelligence of what is going on. that's exactly what the president did again in this case. look, there's -- detailed intelligence was revealed that's necessary. when the klm 007 flight was shot down, we revealed the sensitive
12:43 pm
methods we tuesday collect information to confirm the russians did that. president kennedy revealed information regarding the cuban missile crisis regarding sensitive intelligence. so president obama has put himself in the corner here. and as jim said, jim is, you know, seen -- let me be clear on this. john brennan, the director of cia, is at fault. he's the one putting out rumors about fbi and dni backing him up. he's the leaking this, no one else. i think it's clear that he's doing that. i believe that jim -- that john brennan is doing it based on president obama's direction. >> let me jump in here for a moment, colonel. we're going to take a quick break, come back with those of you for more of your reflections after this. stay with us for that.
12:44 pm
(vo) it's the holidays at verizon, and the best deals are on the best network. with no surprise overages, you can use your data worry free and even carry over the data you don't use. and right now get four lines and 20 gigs for only $40 per line. you'll even get the iphone 7, the samsung galaxy s7, the pixel phone by google, test. test. test. test. get the best deals and the best network, only on verizon.

12:46 pm
my dad called them up and asked for "the jennifer garner card" which is such a dad thing to do. after he gave his name the woman from capital one said "mr. garner, are you related to jennifer?" kind of joking with him. and my dad was so proud to tell her, "as a matter of fact, she is my middle daughter". so now dad has the venture card, he's earning his double miles, and he made a friend at the company. can i say it? go ahead! what's in your wallet? nice job dad.
12:47 pm
welcome back, everybody. i'm back with lieutenant colonel tony schaefer and ambassador james woolsey, also the former cia director. welcome. we are under a time crunch, ump, but i do want to ask you,
12:48 pm
ambassador woolsey, about the fact that members of the house intelligence committee were expecting a briefing from several key players in the intelligence community this week. and at the last minute, those meetings were abruptly canceled. can you talk more about this and the impact this is having on the situation, which is obviously a very controversial one. and it's put a dark cloud over the taegs moment, the cia. >> well, i think when all is clear here after probably a few months and some investigations, it will turn out it wasn't the regular agency employees that were the problem. they went as far as i know to the republicans and said, you may be being hacked, can we check things out. and the republicans said, sure, here are the passwords, go ahead. they weren't being hacked. but the democrats didn't want them to look into it because understandably, because their candidate was under criminal
12:49 pm
investigation at the time. so this is a tangled situation. and i think hearings are going to be necessary, it's going to be necessary to get to the bottom of what happened. but that doesn't mean that's the way we go back at the russians. the way to go back at the russians is to get the price of oil down by putting some competition into the oil market. that would sting them millions of times more than our going at them with some kind of hacking problem. >> very interesting. colonel schaefer, before i have to say good-bye to the two of you, i want to ask you also, does it bother you that president-elect trump is just dismissing the reports of hacking being tied to the russians? because now the fbi is saying that it also believes that the russians were involved in the situation. should donald trump take a closer look at the material? >> right. quickly, i agree with ambassador woolsey. look, we've got to link what we're doing, intelligence to economics, and i think that's what mr. trump is looking at doing. let me be clear on this. if you read the article clearly, the "post" article, the source
12:50 pm
of this commentary saying the fbi supports it, it's not the fbi saying it backs up the cia director. it's the cia director, john brennan, in an internal memo at this is disinformation. john brennan is playing disinformation game. so let me be very clear on this. i think we need to look at how, if the russians did it, we do things to hurt them effectively. link intelligence to economics. i think that's what we need to do. with that said, i'm not convinced the russians did it. julian assange says they got it from an insider. the bottom line is, nobody's denying the content of those e-mails. i would be horrified to think the american people should reject truthful information if we don't know the source. as long as it's true, we recollected accept -- we should it. >> thank you for joining us today. all right. we are waiting president-elect trump for the final stop of his thank you tour to supporters. he's returning back to the scene
