3:05 am
potent. really cold storm bringing rain and mountain snow. snow 2,000 to 3,000 feet across the mountain areas. by the time we get to tomorrow morning we will see some of the mountains of arizona and southern california that see over a foot of snow. take a look at this, all kinds of areas have winter advisories on and that red there across the dakotas is a blizzard warning for tomorrow. blizzard across the far northern plains one big storm out there. the east looking good. >> what would it be without snow on christmas. >> a lot of states can't have it. >> last year it was 60 degrees here on christmas. >> we will be very, very warm again this week. >> thank you, rick. >> all right. president obama turning his back on israel. >> u.s. backing decades old policy by not vetoing a u.n. resolution that refuses to recognize israeli settlements. >> lauren blanchard with more on what the decision really means, lauren, good morning? >> good morning, that's right. the u.s. has historically
3:06 am
used veto power in the u.n. to stop similar resolutions in the past. last year obama abstained from the vote anti-israel resolution to pass 14-0. condemns controversial israeli settlements in disputed palestinian territory. israeli's prime minister benjamin netanyahu said in a statement israel rejects this shameful anti-israel resolution at the u.n. and will not abide by its terms. at a time when the security council is not doing anything to stop the slaughter of half a million people in syria, it disgracefully gangs up on the one true democracy in the middle east. the current u.n. ambassador samantha powers did concede the u.n. has targeted israel in the past resolutions. but it said their abstain vote was in line with the president's policy and his belief that settlements harm peace talks. >> one cannot simultaneously champion expanding israeli settlements and champion a
3:07 am
viable two state solution that would end the conflict. one has to make a choice between settlements and separation. >> up on capitol hill president obama receiving backlash from republican and some democratic members of congress. house speaker paul ryan calling the vote shameful and saying it sets a dangerous precedent and may further demonize israel. prime minister netanyahu has also accused president obama of colluding with israel's enemies in the decision. but the president has received some positive reaction from human rights groups. back to you guys. >> all right, lauren, thanks so much. >> remarkable. on the way out the door president obama finds a way to stick it to israel. don't take it from me. the daily news, which is always defending president obama and defended hillary clinton throughout the campaign, obama shafts israel. that coming from the new york daily news. >> a lot of israel supporters voted for president obama twice. >> yes. >> now that he doesn't need their votes anymore. doesn't seem like he is as eager to please them. >> some of them are even
3:08 am
speaking out. some of the democrats. including debbie wasserman schultz who is upset about this one. as you said and mike huckabee was on last night and we are going to have him on our show as well. this is basically president obama giving the big middle finger as is he walking out the door. a lot of people are seeing it this way that this was more than just a policy decision for president obama. this was something personal. >> absolutely. i mean, look, alan dershowitz has a piece in the new york daily news saying when you look at what the u.n. did it now makes it basically illegal for jews to pray at the western wall. how ridiculous is that? and think about the u.n. spending their time slapping israel? what are they doing about syria? hundreds of thousands of people being slaughtered and what is the u.n. doing? instead focusing their time on let's slap israel around. i think donald trump, it's not an accident that is he out there saying, look, things are going to be a whole lot different in a couple of weeks. >> he was out tweeting yesterday, because he was involved behind the scenes in this. >> israel came to him, basically and said we need your help.
3:09 am
that's what's remarkable. >> he is obviously up in arms tweeting about this. as to the u.n., things will be different after january 20th. and this comes as ben roads has been behind the scenes working on this as well. he said it is pretty unprecedented for a president-elect to get involved in this type of situation. >> obama trying to shift it and why is donald trump getting involved? donald trump got involved because israel sent some officials to him and his transition team and said president obama and his team are not listening to us. they are going to abstain. they are going to let this go through rather tha than veto it which the u.s. could have done. >> the one who had to apologize a few months ago pause he said reporters are stupid for going along with the narrative he created on the iran deal which is the other big bad thing that obama administration is -- that israel thinks that they did to them. listen to what ben rhoads says about this.
3:10 am
>> on the president-elect, the first thing i have to say is that there is one president at a time. president obama is the president of the united states until january 20th. and, you know, we are taking this action, of course, as a u.s. policy. and as i also said, i went back on my plane ride, looked at his first pres plent. he is like i just got a letter about mujahideen. want to talk about that. talking about the intel he was receiving. he said there needed to be a stimulus before the inauguration. there was still. >> we're not waiting. >> they were not waiting. >> very interesting. what is challenging, i think, for nikki haley who is going to be our incoming ambassador to the u.n., this is tough to overturn. how do you change this policy voted on by the u.n. >> make a mess for the next
3:11 am
guy. >> actually because i do think if you analyze this, it's pretty clear that if hillary clinton had won, president obama would not be sticking it to israel in the way out the door because the clinton transition team would say we need to try to work with prime minister netanyahu. now as you say president obama is like i'm done with netanyahu, number one. and number two, i don't care if donald trump has to deal with this and it's going to be a big mess. >> that's what president obama has been saying for the past 8 years is what works here when it comes to israel and palestine are investigations is communicating. that is what he has led them to believe all this time. so a lot of folks in israel. a lot of the leaders there were surprised by this move yesterday. >> not just hardliners in israel, right? it's democrats here in the united states. look at chuck schumer, for example. blasting the administration. ron biden, dick manchin, chris coons and debbie was sermon schultz the rnc chair she has jewish community in
3:12 am
her district saying what in the world is going on here. >> he said he is going to start talking tour enemies and make them our friends. donald trump has been saying i'm going to go and talk to democrats and now it looks like he has a whole list of them that are ready okay. let's get this next guy in here. let's go help israel out? big message here is he saying when i'm in there things are going to be different. >> we do have other headlines to get to this morning that woe want to start with there is a fox news alert. a sad one. outpouring support for fisher best known as princess la leah in "star wars" suffering a heart attack on outgoing flight. >> what are you doing? >> somebody has to save us. >> the 60-year-old star is in intensive care at l.a. hospital. friends and co-stars reacting to that news. fisher's on screen brother mark hamill tweeting this if
3:13 am
2016 couldn't get any worse, sending our love to carrie fisher. >> derek thompson reportedly trying to buy a gun and discussing plans to carry out a lone wolf attack saying they have been watching 30-year-old thompson for two years now. documents show he searched midnight mass and which guns were most powerful. frightening stuff. >> mainstream media going nuclear over the president-elect's tweets. >> trump this morning is sparking fears of a new nuclear arms race with just 140 characters. >> making policy over twitter is usually disruptive. >> but our next guest says wait a second. it actually works. >> and a group of officers hailed as heroes after saving a man from a burning car wreck. the extraatic rescue caught on camera ♪ bethlehem ♪ hac over in core rea i

3:17 am
and complicated and consequential policy issue. nuclear proliferation in a tweet. >> when we're in a situation where people around the world are trying to figure out where president trump is going to take us or where presidenpresident-elect trump is going to take in a tweet is concerning. >> are they overreacting to discuss. vice president at the center for security policy jim hanson. good morning good to see. >> you what's your reaction to people in mainstream media basically saying donald trump is not allowed to use the social media tool? >> i think the problem is trump now has a direct line to the american public without the filter of a mostly unfriendly media and they hate that he has made them largely irrelevant. in this case, putin started it by talking about russia making major upgrades to their nuclear capabilities. now, instead of rolling over and showing his belly, trump responds directly and shows putin and the rest of the world's tyrants that he is
3:18 am
not going to take it i think it was hugely effective. >> let's look at the tweet in question. donald trump saying, quote: the united states must greatly strengthen and expand its nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its census regarding nukes. i take your point, jim, that the context was this was after vladimir putin made public statements that suggested russia was expanding its nuclear capabilities. do. so critics have a point that this is kind of sensitive policy to say the least and doing it in 140 characters can wind up boomer ranking? >> it could. i mean, it's no question. but everything that a president-elect or president does is consequential. so the ability to go ahead and put that message out there, put putin on notice, and remind people that our nuclear capability needs some work. it's antiquated. hasn't been upgraded or tested in forever. probably time for us to ensure that it is a actual legitimate deterrent.
3:19 am
>> let's look at another issue involving president-elect trump where it seems to be some hypocrisy to say the least in the media. because you had, when he took that phone call, from the president of taiwan, there was sort of this outrage, this gasp oh my gosh, he is breaking protocol and breaking long standing u.s. policy to take this phone call. but didn't we see president obama break, you know, u.s. policy in terms of protecting israel before the u.n. security council and you're not hearing the same kind of outrage from the media. >> because the media and obama share a dislike of israel. and obama was kind of held in check by the fact that most of america is pro-israel. so he wasn't able to do what he wanted to do. even though much much his policies were detrimentally. now taken steps peace. palestinians being awarded for doing nothing and israelis were punished. >> shameful display. i have 30 seconds.
3:20 am
peter doocy mentioned this a moment ago that you have a lot of jewish democrats who overwhelmingly supported president obama twice and supported hillary clinton and yet, this is what president obama does on the way out the door. >> president obama would rather do something that makes him and his hard left supporters feel good than something that actually has a chance at peace. it's sad. >> jim hanson, thanks for joining us and merry christmas. >> same to you, ed. >> critics slam donald trump for use of twitter. this morning it's the american taxpayer getting the last laugh. latest company promising begging we are going to cut costs overnight. said. this after donald trump demanded a better deal. and what is christmas like at the huntsman house? >> best memory for the three of us because we all shared a room for how many years? >> a long time. >> when we would go to bed we would say i think i hear santa claus and we never slept. >> i think i saw a photo that looked like a little karaoke,able buy takes us home for the holidays next

3:34 am
honestly. and i was coming here this morning. i thought and they changed the topic to this topic because it's such a pressing item right now. all those christians who decided to stay in the middle east and not seek refuge. there is a lot of criticism of the obama administration, all of refugees with a small percentage have been muslim and not christian. why don't you bring the christians over first? they need asylum. but many of them and the many of them has decided to stay. to stay there because this is our homeland and we need to make sure that we keep our faith here in the middle east. and i was thinking about that as this threat comes out now. maybe it's our turn now. it's our turn to decide we're not going to run away from danger, meaning running away from our faith and actually decide to do those things that maybe put us in danger but are worth fighting for, living for, dying for. >> that's so inspiring. it was only a few months ago that the priest, it was in
3:35 am
france that was killed by isis. >> yep. and you know, i think of that. sometimes when you are out there on the altar. i'm in the bronx. you know, it's a wonderful place but it's a crazy place. you know, that's maybe why we love it you are there. you are a target. you are a target for people who are may be crazed but a target of people who say we have an ideology of hate and it has to do with our, quote, religious beliefs. >> that's exactly what isis wants us to do. they want us to live in fear and stay home from going to church. something we have always done. i have loved that message this morning. if you do feel unsure about things and do feel frightened, go to church. what is your message this weekend though as we are celebrating christmas eve today, christmas tomorrow, what is your message to people? >> well, it's a message that god himself gave to us in the form of a baby. like what greater message -- nobody is afraid of a baby. right? we hug babies. babies are -- they need us. and god is telling us in the
3:36 am
christian faith i have decided to meet you. and i am going to come in a form where you, no matter your fears and anxieties, your own sin, your own background, your own messiness, who can't hold a baby? and god is saying i'm going to make myself a size where and also a form where you can embrace me. and that's the message of redemption. he wants to be embraced by us and then in turn he embraces us with eternal life. >> i love that father john, last question something you had mentioned earlier. you said up on the altar you said you think about being a target. when people get ready to go to church at midnight tonight or tomorrow morning should they in fact, based on what you have heard see any type of a different security measure at their church than they might have sean some other places they go to a mall or movie theater. >> i called the local precinct, police precinct in new york this morning when i saw tonight we have a very goo good working relationship with them. i said, without putting

people off, i don't want people standing -- police standing there at the door checking people, but please be attentive. i'm going to tell my congregation, thank god we have police officers in new york and around the country willing it put their lives at risk in order to defend us. yes, we have to take isis seriously. they are telling us we are going to do this. but we have to take seriously our ability to say even so, i will not change my life and i will not abandon my faith out of fear. >> i love that. >> thanks for your inspiring message. merry christmas. >> we got more done today than most people. >> most people are sleeping in until noon. >> we always love having you here. >> we have other headlines now. donald trump making more deals this time taking aim at lockheed martin demanding that the company cut costs for f-18. the ceo plans to do just that here is what he is saying, i don't know that president-elect trump wants the very best capability for

and so far 92-year-old jimmy carter is the only former president who plans to be there on january 20th. as for the list of the living presidents, george h.w. bush will not be there due to his poor health. george w. bush is a maybe. he will decide in january bill and hillary clinton have still not responded. peter? jetblue passengers booted off a plane harassing ivanka trump's family. my husband is chasing them down to harass them. why are they calling it a run-in or incident and reporting that the passenger was merely questioning ivanka trump.
3:46 am
let's ask the craig. >> good morning, happy christmas eve. >> the first question are you surprised at all that this man and his partner who come from a community that has been asking for equality for decades was so intolerant that they couldn't just walk past ivanka trump without getting the knives out? >> i'm not surprised at all that she faces this kind of harassment. she was flying coach for an awoman who usually flies private. what's wild to me is how stupid these guys appear to be. not only is donald trump probably the most pro-gay republican president in history, we are talking about his daughter who is certainly the most liberal advisor that donald trump has. probably the only person in his entire close orbit who would even agree with some of these guys attacking her on a flight and attacking her. >> when donald trump got the nomination and looked like
3:47 am
he might become the president. on the left say at least he has vawn ivanka and his family n her side because we like her. >> yeah, ivanka is hanging out with al gore. she is chumming around and good friends with chelsea clinton. she is somebody from the manhattan circles. she doesn't have the conservative populist bent of her father. people love her. as far as reaching out to her. she is going to be the person you are want to reach out to if you are interested in universal decay or passing legislation on global warming. she is going to be your point of contact. this is not a good way to make an impression on her. >> chris, you just mentioned chelsea clinton. in terms of the coverage that this incident has gotten, what woo it be a bigger story if chelsea clinton was sitting in coach and she got talked down to by a tea party. >> that would be huge that would be a big story. imagine the outrage if somebody had ever attacked michelle obama and her children. she is the patron saint of
3:48 am
the left. if she ever had been harassed by a tea partier, which, of course, never happened. you would hear it on the front pages and every headline on the newspapers across the paper. >> chris bedford down in washington, d.c. thank you very much for coming on. >> thank you. >> coming up with just a month left in his presidency, president obama snubs our biggest ally israel as the united nations. so, would the president have done the same thing if hillary clinton won the election? governor mike huckabee is coming up next to discuss that at the top of the hour. but, first, do you want an apple watch or amazon echo for christmas and do you know how they work? kirk the cyber phi here to work with your christmas day tech ♪ we need a little christmas ♪ right this very minute ♪ we're in a hurry ♪ climb down the chimney ♪

4:03 am
administration has done in its last days. i mean, have some just common decency. if you are going to do this. do it upfront. but to do it in such a cowardly way just as you are leaving office, basically to say to the world ho here is one more for you, good luck with it look, i had a speech teacher in high school who said silence is agreement. yesterday, the u.s. had an abstained vote. that's silence. that's agreeing with the idiotic, dangerous, and disturbing position that the u.n. took based on a resolution from four nations it basically says to israel you don't deserve to be a nation that has secure borders and has any security. this is incredible. and, you foe, i will not use terms like settlements because that conjures up this picture that the israelis are throwing tents in somebody else's yard. that's not true. they are building neighborhoods in judy judea
4:04 am
and samaria for the people coming there. they are doing it in the territory that was given to them by the god of abraham, isaac and jacob and has been there homeland for 4,000 years. >> now, governor, i put on twitter that you were going to be coming on the show. matthew dowd said we should put this in the right context. previous presidents both parties as you know have had long standing u.s. policy which is true about reigning in settlements. i'm looking for a story 2008 on a trip with then george w. bush he was pressuring israel on the settlements issue. but what the critics seem to be missing is that this also long standing u.s. policy to go before the u.n. security council and shield israel against these kinds of attacks. that's where president obama, it seems to me, flipped u.s. policy. >> well, two things to note. first of all, the policy we have had is bone headed. it's a ridiculous policy that we don't apply to any other nation on earth to tell them if someone attacks you and you attack back and defend your cub thrill and
4:05 am
you end up getting more land that you are supposed to give that up and let your enemies get even closer to you. that's absurd. the two state solution is no solution. it's never gonna work. i know it's been our policy but it's a foolish policy. it's feckless and it'sdangerous. and the fact is the palestinians have no intention of ever coming to a peace accord. remember, in 1995, when ehud barak was basically willing to give up 95% of the israeli land and rejected it? why. they don't want peace. palestinians started as a terrorist organization in the early 1960s. jerusalem has never been the capital of any country except for the jews in israel. it's never been a palestinian capital ever. when people talk about it it's like they are ignorant. i have been going to israel 43 years. i have been there many times a year. i will be there a week from tomorrow. i'm not speaking about something i have read about. i have visited these places. and when people talk about apartheid, they are talking out of insanity.
4:06 am
they have no idea what they are talking about. and the israelis have provided jobs. they provided safe haven. they provide hospital care. let me just row mind you. this there are arabs who are in the israeli -- you can tell me how many jews help governor saudi arabia or yemen or the emirates? none. >> well, governor, i want to get your thoughts on this because president-elect donald trump was tweeting about this right after it happened. he is saying that things will be different when he gets in office come january 20th. and this comes as ben rhodes, the white house deputy national security advisor he said, look, at this point, president obama is in office. this is not the time and place, basically, for president-elect trump to be getting involved in these sorts of things. here is what he said on that. >> the first thing i have to say is that there is one president at a time. president obama is the president of the united states until january 20th. and, you know, we are taking this action, of course as
4:07 am
u.s. policy. and as i also said, this has been long standing bipartisan u.s. policy to oppose this type of settlement activity going forward. >> so there you have ben rhodes basically telling president-elect donald trump tbut out of this thing and yet is he going to take over in a couple of weeks here. >> also policy american presidents don't change a long standing four decade old policy about vetoing these kind of actions at the united nations in the waning 30 days of his tenure. this is major policy shift that happened yesterday. and we set back at the u.n. let me just tell you. the u.n., it's time for us to stop sending money down that rat hole. these are a bunch of mosquitoes pretending to be eagles and they have no business trying to determine what other countries do in their own sovereign nation. and it's become a laughing stock. when you have countries like venezuela making this
4:08 am
decision and putting forth? i mean, how does that make any sense to anybody whose brain has enough iq horsepower to pedal a bicycle halfway around an english pea, for heavennens sake. this is incredibly dangerous policy. it's going to make the world a much less safe place for everybody. >> governor, the change in the u.n. not the only thing that donald trump was tweeting about yesterday. he also wrote this about the recent terrorist truck attack at the christmas market. he said the tastes had killed so many people in germany said just before crime by god's will we will slaughter you pigs, i swear we will slaughter you. this is a purely religious threat which turned into reality. such hatred when will the u.s. and all countries fight back. so, the next president is really trying to make a point that members of a certain religion are being targeted by members of another religion.
4:09 am
do you think how big of a change is that going to be when he takes over? >> it's going to be monumental change. when christians were being slaughtered in egypt, our government said nothing. when there were christians being slaughtered among the kurdish territory of iraq, our government basically said nothing. when people were being slaughtered in aleppo, you know, we were feckless and, again, we secretary of defense there would be a red line, but there hasn't been a red line. we haven't done anything. one thing i do think donald trump will do is to say, number one, we're not going to stand by and watch people of any faith but specifically christians who are targeted more likely by radical islam. we're north going to stand by and just watch them get slaughtered. the second thing we're going to call this what it is. it is radical islamist terror. and i think it's going to be a refreshing change just to acknowledge the enemy. i bet a lot of germans wish that angela merkel had recognized that there was a real threat before she let 1.1 million unvetted
4:10 am
refugees in. one of whom drove that truck. >> governor huckabee, we appreciate your insights. merry christmas. one quick question. what's your favorite chinese dish? what are we going to see on merry christmas? what's your big. >> crispy shredded beef extra hot. >> you leave like some low some lomein on the side. >> it's good on the side. >> merry christmas. >> we do have other headlines to get to this morning. starting this one. fox news alert. outpouring of support carrie fisher best known a aspirin sayleah on "star wars" after suffering cardiac event on outbound flight. >> what the hell are you doing. >> somebody needs to save us kids. >> fisher's family saying the 60-year-old star is in intensive care at l.a. hospital. friends and co-stars reacting to the sad news.
4:11 am
"star wars" co-star peter mayor who played chewbacca tweeting his thoughts for everyone's favorite friend carrie fish everywhere. >> homegrown terrorists arrested after spreading support to isis. reportedly trying to buy a gun and even discussing plans to carry out a lone wolf attack in arizona. authorities saying they have been watching the 30-year-old thompson for over two years now. documents show he searched midnight mass and which guns were the most powerful. then there is this. vladimir putin hillary clinton and democrats who say don't be sore losers. putin said this calling out the white house and item kelm leaders for calling their election loss on russia. >> hillary and the dems in my opinion it is humiliating. one must be able to lose with dignity. so true. >> well, dignity leads us, of course, to rick reichmuth. >> good morning, rick.

4:17 am
protect america. if they increase their nuclear capability, america will act. >> and speaking of business as usual, the president-elect didn't just buck nuclear policy. he also called out lockheed martin earlier this week over the quote tremendous cost of the f-35 fighter jet program. the company is now responding, promising to lower the cost. joining us now to reacted is brad thomas editor of the forbes rae investor. also the author of the trump factor. unlocking the secrets behind the trump empire. first good morning and merry christmas. thanks for coming. in let's talk big picture about what is the trump factor. what is it about his negotiating style that seems to be working. >> first off donald trump is a developer first president of the united states his experience as a real estate developer boils down to one thing. he has learned how to engineer real estate
4:18 am
multibillion-dollar empire into properties. it boils down how to real estate portfolio. taking that d.n.a. over to the white house. >> you say great negotiating style. on the other hand, isn't some of this kind of obvious and just other presidents in both parties, maybe, have not pushed hard enough? because in the case of lockheed martin they are now saying we want to save taxpayer money. we're going to make sure costs are held down. isn't that what they are supposed to have been doing all along? they were just spending the taxpayer's money. our viewers, their hard work, their hard earned tax money, just frivolously spending it. and now donald trump is finally saying wait a second, reign it in. >> donald trump is a tough negotiator. he knows how to manage risk. this guy has gone through decades of risk management in the investing world. now translate that over to politics today. and how he has been able to go through and cut costs for everything. i think we are starting to see it it now with boeing was a good example.
4:19 am
>> and you see company after company after company. so donald trump will go and look at every line item and every cost. and we have never seen a president who has done that this is the first. >> let's lock at another tweet on nuclear issues. he wrote the united states must greatly strength and expand nuclear capability until such time as the world comes to its census regarding nukes. my question on this is okay on the business side i get where boeing and lockheed martin the carrier deal some of that may work out. what about the negotiating side when you are talking about nuclear weapons. can't that back fire? this is serious policy to be dealing with in 140 characters. >> again, part of that risk management that we have seen with donald trump over the years and again, in the development world, translate that to the white house. he has been able to hire just like he did in development, high quality engineers, architects, surveyors, now we are seeing carl icahn the ceo of walt disney and ibn. building a foundation.

4:26 am
it's a reflection of her dad and how he raised her. >> when stuff like this happens though how much of it is just a last second emotional outburst this guys sees we know in this case it was premeditated but when somebody comes home for christmas. how much of it is they see the aunt or uncle that they disagree with. or how much of it is like this guy where they are just building up oh, i know that she voted for trump or he voted for sanders and i'm going to give her a piece of my mind. which causes more problems? >> i think there was premeditation there because they saw her getting on this flight beforehand. this gave this guy an opportunity percolate emotionally in a negative way and take all of his frustrations out in front of a plane filled with people with his own child with him. >> when you are traveling you are probably already frustrated waited time and crowded and seats are small. go in with the mind set of being a grateful, classy person. >> tune in to yourself and relax. >> especially when you are sitting down at the dinner table. we have been talking about
4:27 am
our family and traditions. at lot of people sitting down with a big family. a lot of permanents. a lot of different background and political affiliations. you say avoid it all together. how do you handle that? >> i think we have to remember number one we're adults and we should be able to have conversations with other adults. and if they disagree with us, that's an opportunity for us to learn how to handle our emotions in the face of disagreements. and also what is tomorrow? tomorrow is christmas. so for all the christians out there, that represents christ the day that christ was born. and what did jesus christ represent? he represented peace and love and caring for other people. not hostility and anger. we need to remember that. >> is it really realistic to think that people -- that part, i get. but is it realistic for people to sit down christmas dinner and not talk politics after this election? >> yeah. that's a little ambitious, i would say. >> how do you handle it then? it's going to come up. >> you will have the crazy uncle or graneld that in the

corner say i think this or that. >> you pull out what boxers do. go into the bathroom and psych yourself out in a positive way make sure i'm in control of myself. i'm not going to lose my cool. i'm an adult. it's okay if somebody disagrees with me. >> you have been doing this a long time. are there generally more arguments at christmas or thanksgiving or with your family after a democrat won or after a republican won because it seems like, you know, you go on buzz feed or these websites ten things to say to your crazy republican uncle. never see how to talk to somebody who might be a democrat. >> right. i think the outward anger or frustration that is coming is really coming more from the democrats in my opinion. i remember 8 years ago when obama won, i don't remember hearing republicans accosting people on airplanes and letting people have it. you see a lot of that now. >> peter was saying in the segment early there hasn't been a tea party party person who went after michelle obama if there had been we would still be
4:29 am
talking about it. >> do we have the video at the doocy household last christmas. >> we don't have that video. >> i represent a lot of families, i think, where you have members that don't always agree on politics. so you are going to have arguments and things might get a little bit out of control. oftentimes in my family someone will get up from the table and walk out. how do you avoid that situation and bring it down back to reality? >> i think removing yourself. if you are in an emotional frenzy at the moment. remove yourself from the occasion. gather yourself, gather your emotions and come back in and remember that you are an adult that is supposed to be responsible. there is probably going to be children there you want to model good behavior for them as well. >> or pull a home alone. look what you did, you jerk. >> thank you for having me. >> we appreciate it. >> thank you so much for being here. democrats still sobbing after losing the election. instead of the inauguration they want to throw a pity party. wait until you hear who they invited into-to-that party. >> pajamas are a staple at my house on christmas morning.

4:35 am
about. it was an air hockey table. and we do still have the. >> people will be very alarmed. >> we do have other headlines for you. this one is a fox news alert. we start with isis calling on its follower tack churches as millions of americans prepare to head out to christmas mass. federal authorities on alert after pro-isis websites publishing a list of churches and pastors in the united states. father jonathan morris addressed the concerns earlier on the show. here is what he said. >> we are a target. you are a target for people maybe crazed but you are also a target people who say we have an ideology of hate and it has to do with our,
4:36 am
quote, religious belief. >> officials saying there are no credible threats. but sent the warning out out of abundance of caution. and a star studded inauguration day pity party apparently for the democrats. the massive concert show reportedly being planned in miami counter president trump's inauguration and bring in better ratings while rumored beyonce, katy perry and elton john, no artists yet have committed to that pity party. a college in our nation's capitol named after our first president is no longer requiring history majors to take u.s. history. george washington university changing requirements for history majors making key courses optional to give students flexibility. the courses are still available. students could still achieve history degree without a single u.s. history course. good god. tis the season for giving. lebron james is giving -- he

4:38 am
day really. people hoping for a white christmas, this is where there is snow on the ground right now. and this is where there will be snow on the ground tomorrow. worryinworry we're going to seea big snow belt kansas where temperatures are going to warm up into the 60's for tomorrow. north of that, still a little bit colder. we will see some snow across the mountains of arizona and nevada as well. here is your forecast for the day today. pick out your city, we will put the map in motion and see how this goes. we have one storm moving through bringing rain. we will clear out by the end of the day. behind that temps not really that cold. sunday, christmas day is going to be pretty nice. down to the southeast we start out with some showers by the afternoon. we see a little bit more clearing and temps warming up as well. pretty nice. in towards the northern plains not that bad of a day. temps certainly warmer than where they were. plenty of cloud cover. temperaturewise we are okay. tomorrow is your snowy and stormy day. finally out across the west is where all the action is. most of it is in towards arizona and utah where we will see some spots over a foot of snow.
4:39 am
good news if you planned a skiing christmas trip which sounds like a lot of fun. all right, guys. back to you inside. >> that sounds fabulous. >> president obama, we have been talking about this all morning turning his back on israel and bringing -- breaking decades old policy by not condemnin con -- congresn zeldin, are you surprised that we kind of stiffed israel on this because this is the same administration that decided israel's great enemy in the middle east, iran, should be our friend? >> well, we should be surprised but, you know, over the course of the last few months and weeks, there was this talk about possibly between the election and the next administration taking over that president obama might not use our veto authority at the u.n. this resolution that was passed yesterday is an anti-israel, anti-jewish,
4:40 am
anti-semitic resolution. president obama is colluding with a hamas, abbas propal citizennian effort to essentially ethnically cleanse eastern jerusalem and judeo sumaria region. so, a lot of american -- most americans, most of congress, a lot of the democratic party, i mean, there is a revolt, it's not the will of the people for president obama. >> those are strong words. anti-semitic resolution? >> you are essentially ethnically cleansing an area. i mean, this is hanukkah starts this evening. and this story of the mac abees, they were living, fighting, praying, working in an area that this u.n. resolution is saying that jews aren't going to be able to settle. >> it says also jews can't pray at the western wall. >> it's -- and, you know, and boycotting economic products that might be manufactured there.
4:41 am
this is -- some people on the left are saying that these settlements are illegal. he's just not true. and you know, they are misinterpreting u.n. resolutions, goo geneva conventions. people don't know all the details of al all of these resolutions and conventions playing on that fact they are trying to spin this in a way as if it was already illegal. it was the resolution yesterday for the first time they are making that statement. >> what does this mean going forward? because obviously president trump is n a matter of weeks. he has voiced his opinion very upset about this. saying is he going to work with benjamin netanyahu moving forward this is a chapter. the vote took place already yesterday. does this change policy from here? how are you thinking about it? >> well, we're going to have to clean up a lot of damage and it should be noted that president obama still has just less that be four weeks left in office. so it's possible that he might do something else. whether it's domestic or foreign policy that set us
4:42 am
further back. i don't believe that we should be funding the palestinian authority. we should not be funding any efforts to implement a resolution like this. it shouldable further noted, the palestinian authority, they financially reward families for being imprisoned for terrorizing innocent israelis. >> final point because we have 30 seconds. on talking about funding. donald trump tweeted yesterday, there is going to be a new sheriff in town on january 20th. do you think finally, you hear this from some of your republican colleagues like lindsey graham that there might be an effort that is actually successful at this time to cut off funds to united nations. >> very likely that the support is growing there was always some support. i would say there is even now more support. so that's a growing possibility with the united nations acting in a way against our allies. our strongest ally israel. >> nikki haley is going to have a lot on her plate when she gets in that role. >> hanukkah starts tonight as you said.

how did this is an that tracking tradition by the united states military star start? >> >> it's a great funny story it dan each before norad was around. the tradition started in 1955 when a young boy accidently dialed a misprinted phone number in a local department store advertisement. rang in operation center here in colorado springs then known as continental air defense command. command center director assured the boy that santa would have a safe journey from the north pole and thus the tradition was born so we have been doing this since 1955. >> thanks for being here this morning. >> the good news is santa is already up and running. he is already on his way so kids have got to go to bed early tonight. >> if there is an issue. the u.s. military will let us know. >> all right. coming up. merry christmas from the pc police. one country wants you to get permission from your child

5:02 am
president obama turning his back on israel. >> that's right. the u.s. breaking decades old policy by not protecting israel, not vetoing a u.n. resolution refusing to recognize israeli settlements. >> lauren blanchard is live from washington, d.c. with more on what the decision means. good morning, lauren. >> good morning. yeah. yesterday, the obama administration abstained from a u.n. security council vote allowing what some call an anti-israel resolution to pass 14-0. the u.s. has historically used its veto power to stop the u.n. in similar resolutions against israel. their prime minister benjamin netanyahu said in a statement the obama administration not only failed to protect israel against this gang-up at the u.n. it colluded with it behind the scenes. the president's administration has become increasingly critical of israel settlements and disputed palestinian territory. the decision is getting support from some human
5:03 am
rights groups. u.n. ambassador samantha powers did concede the u.n. has targeted israel in the past resolutions but said abstaining from the vote was in line with the president's policy and his belief that settlements harm peace talks. >> united states has been sending the message that the settlements must stop privately and publicly for nearly five decades. one cannot champion expanding sessionments and a viable two state solution that would end the conflict. one has to make a choice between settlements and separation. >> on capitol hill, president obama he receiving backlash from republicans and some democrats. house speaker paul ryan calling the vote shameful and saying a unified republican government will work to build relations with israel. prime minister netanyahu also said he looks forward to working with president-elect donald trump. abby, ed, peter? >> thanks lauren blanchard
5:04 am
live in washington. appreciate it. >> ed, help break this down because obviously there are people up in arms. we had governor mike huckabee on this morning. and he was furious about what happened in this vote yesterday, saying this is basically president obama giving a huge middle finger. >> congressman lee zeldin was on the couch last hour going so far as to say this was an anti-semitic resolution and that this is opening the door to ethnic cleansing. that's what he said. the stakes are enormous. >> you start to wonder how much of this is a shot at israel and how much of it is a shot at donald trump? because netanyahu and trump were working together. they were doing this pr campaign for the last few days. the united states should veto, use their veto power to knock this resolution down because it is bad for israel. and the white house knew all about that. >> right. >> and they did nothing. so, they know that they are leaving kind of a mess for the next president. president obama, samantha powers, ben rhodes they know
5:05 am
they are leaving a mess for the next president and you wonder how much of that was on purpose. >> you make a great point. because the question here now is what happens? and can this deal be changed? and charles krauthammer was on last night. i listen squarefully to what he says because is he so thoughtful about these moments. i don't know if we have that set up i'm going to read that to you. we do have that shot with charles krauthammer. >> he have eight years to enact his agenda. he twice wins so he has two mandates. and, yet, at the very last minute when loss of legitimacy and lame duck, he leaves last-minute land mines behind, things he could never have done when he was still an active politician in the sense that he had to protect himself or the party. he shuts down the artic of the atlantic for oil and gas drilling exploration and he stabs israel in the back just as a coda. so i give him the lump of coal. >> so he says, you know, stabbing israel in the back. huckabee saying that,
5:06 am
basically giving him the middle finger. what he said there that i thought was so poignant is leaving these huge land mines for the incoming administration to have to fill. >> that's what's important is what is next. donald trump immediately went on twitter and it was short and sweet and said as to the u.n. things will be different after january 20th. because you hear from the white house, the current white house. one president at a time. so i read from that tweet, fine, it's one sentence. one president at a time. but come january 20th. this is going to be turned around. >> but until then, you know, what needs to be different? until then, this could be a major security problem for israel. because, they have people all around them in the middle east who just saw that their best friend, the united states, isn't so friendly anymore. so if you are iran, and you see that the u.s. does not have israel's back on, this what are you thinking? >> sure. you have got the only democracy basically in the middle east. our key ally. meanwhile what's the u.n. doing on the other hand to stop the slaughter in syria? where is their focus on that.
5:07 am
that's what president-elect trump is getting at. these ridiculous shots at israel. what about actual substantive efforts to stop the carnage? what about that. >> what does the focus need to be and who do we need to rely on to help us with places like syria and terrorism right now? that's the question. >> right. you have got ted cruz saying let's defund the u.n. you have lindsey graham very reasonable republican who has not always been donald trump's best friend. but saying wait a second. maybe we have got to take money away from the u.n. i would also note the daily news, which was against donald trump at every turn, obama shafts israel. chuck schumer, the democratic senate minority leader, are all of those democrats right there. including debbie wasserman schultz. >> you have senator ron white and joe manchin and senator richard blumenthal and chris coons and debbie wasserman schultz. these are people who didn't speak out in years past when president obama was in office. like there is a new chapter starting here.
5:08 am
we can voice our frustration because this isn't something we want to get behind. >> remember when president obama was campaigning he needed a lot of pro-israel support so we didn't hear any of this from him. but another big part of the obama campaign, especially in 2008 was we are going to go and talk to iran and north korea and cuba. all of these enemies. look what he -- when you are spending that time much time with the enemies, what about our friends? if you are israel with friends like us, who needs enemies, man, they are by themselves at least for another couple weeks. >> and remember that scene at the democratic convention? i was there in charlotte in 2012. the fight over language in the platform about whether or not to move the u.s. embassy in israel. we have got it? >> all those delegates opposed say no. >> no. >> and the opinion of the chair two thirds have voted in the affirmative, the motion is adopted and the platform has been amended as shown on the screen.
5:09 am
>> i remember that was a moment where democrats were embarrassed by how all that played out. look, it has been in fairness, president obama long standing u.s. policy under republican and democratic presidents to be speaking out against these israeli settlements. however long standing veto these kind of -- u.s. -- israel's only ally before the security council. >> that's why this is so important. you made an interesting point ed on the show about how political this move might have been coming from president obama had hillary clinton been this next president coming in. you said that he wouldn't have made this move. i found that real interesting. >> because we abstained, also. it's like president obama. sort of back to the future. remember how he voted present over 100 times as a state senator in illinois. he voted to abstain. we didn't even take a real position. but by abstaining, that allowed the shot at israel to go through. if hillary clinton had been elected, do you really think president obama would have done this to israel? >> he didn't want to leave the land mines for her.
5:10 am
>> and something else interesting to think, about you know, president obama and president-elect trump are apparently talking on the phone all the time when stuff pops up. i would like to know how that next phone call. >> be a fly on the wall there. >> there is going to be another phone call. >> trump has been going out of his way. he defended michelle obama the other day after that comment she made there being no hope to oprah winfrey. they have been nice to me let's move forward and then president obama does this? >> and president obama's deputy national security advisor ben rhodes is saying to everything mr. trump is suggesting well there is only one president at a time. you wonder how much of that is just because donald trump is getting all the attention right now e. barack obama getting very little attention unless he does something like this. >> we have a lot of other headlines. >> this may be just the beginning of this conversation. >> we do have other headlines to get to this morning. starting with a fox news alert. sad one here. outpouring of support for carrie fisher best known
5:11 am

5:17 am
taiwan knees president. and the mean taiwanese president. must greatly strength and expand until such time as the world comes to sensing regarding nukes. this is what he sent out was it yet yesterday? >> the question is is the media overreacting now. fox news strategic analyst ralph peters joins us now. merry christmas. thanks for joining us. >> merry christmas, happy hanukkah. >> great to so he you. what do you think about the president-elect using this relatively new social media tool to put out statements on major policies? >> well, it's clearly a disruptive influence and we have to see in the long term how it works. but what astonishes me is the extravagant, hypocrisy of the american left. under president obama's non-leadership, his passivity, we have seen half a million dead in syria alone. the middle east and north
5:18 am
africa ainflamed. am collapsed. and now they are worried that trump might rebuild our nuclear arsenal? well, hey, guess what? it's deteriorated to the point president obama already started rebuilding it. and trump's tweets this week about -- his comment about a new arms race, that was in response to vladimir putin's i will advised comment earlier this week that russia would develop weapons that would negative divat negate the u.s. nuclear arsenal. trump was saying okay, vlad wring it on. there is not going to be an arms race because putin is broke. >> you added context there that part of it was the president-elect reacting to putin president putin. when you say president-elect trump is only talking about rebuilding the nuclear arsenal, didn't he go further though by saying expand our capabilities? isn't that what alarmed people? >> well, i think what does expand mean? i hate to go thrint on you. if you are expanding the
5:19 am
capabilities of individual systems, that's northernization, if you are expanding numbers of nuclear warheads, that's something different. we're not going to do that. we don't need to do that. russia is not going to do that. look, we have been putting patches on the elbows and sleeves of our nuclear systems. our nuclear triad for more than a generation. now it's time for a new outfit. again, even obama recognized that we need to modernize our nukes. because the paradox is as monstrous as nuclear weapons are, they have kept the peace of europe and the world for almost for more than two generations. and the more terrible they are, the less likely they are to be used. the left will never deal with that. >> western peters you did mention the disruptive nature of these trump tweets, is it really such a bad thing if america's adversaries don't know what we're going to too isn't that something trump said during the campaign i don't want anybody to know what i'm going to do. >> well, certainly an
5:20 am
element of uncertainty on the part of our adversaries is not good. i don't like the uncertainty on the part of our allies that's something the trump team needs to work on. we need to make sure that everyone in nato needs to know we support nato. everyone in the free world needs to know we support freedom. my one concern about president trump's policies has been what appear to be coziness with vladimir putin. now hopefully we are seeing signs of that being over and done with. because clearly while china is our competitor, russia is our enemy, not because we want but because vladimir putin views us as bad. >> you mentioned uncertainty of other nations. i'm sure israel is waking up this morning feeling some of that way. >> yes, indeed. >> good to have you here. >> merry christmas. >> coming up, is he convicted of murdering two fbi agents in cold blood. why is the university honoring him with a statue? >> plus, before he heads out to deliver presents. santa is making a christmas

strategy necessary to defeat terror. joining us now for a fair and balanced debate is attorney, the author of standing alone "an american woman's struggle for the islam" thank you for joining us. >> thanks for having me. >> hi, how are you? >> you told our producers you thought there would be too many constitutional problems with a ban on muslims entering the country from certain terror hot spots but where in the constitution does it say
5:47 am
that you can't vet people from places that are really dangerous in the world who might want to hurt us? >> sure, ban something not vetting. you are talking about banning muslims. vetting is completely fair and we should. >> president-elect trump said he is going -- that's what your topic is so let me talk about that. the president trump knee jerk react to everything that happens in the world. right? and then he backtracks. he still hasn't given an actual policy on how he is going to go about this ban because it's not feasible for any policy to work it needs to be constitutional, politically acceptable. and baseballly has to be implementable. somebody has to implement it i'm not a muslim are you going to let them in? it's just not a workable situation. i think president-elect has no idea what is he talking about. >> my understanding of what the president-elect said this week was that he thinks that he has been 100 percent right about everything. >> but is he wrong.
5:48 am
>> he did not call for a ban on muslims this week from my perspective down at mar-a-lago covering him. >> no, no, he actually said that he was asked a question hey, are you going to go ahead with the ban on muslims? he said yes, i have been 100 percent right. i have been talking about that and we are going to do that. i'm paraphrasing him but that's exactly what he said. okay. asra, a question for u what would be for powerful the actual imposition of this ban on muslims coming from a certain part of the world or just leaving it out there that that is a possibility that that could be something that's coming? >> well, the misrepresentation we just heard and the hyperbole is elm policemennatic of this chicken little syndrome we have had from so many people in our muslim community. >> are you saying did he not say that. >> they take what we mean as very clear instructions. >> are you saying he didn't say that. >> i don't think you need to be rude to me by interrupting me. >> no, no. i'm asking. >> make your point.
5:49 am
>> what we are hearing with this kind of interruption is exactly what we experience in our community. >> lying on behalf of the president-elect. >> well, we try to stand up, when we try to stand up as muslims for the kind of clear policies that we need against extremism, what we hear from our muslim community is exactly what your viewers are listening to right now. misrepresentation. >> you are pro-ban on muslims? >> what we need to do -- what we need to clearly do ask stand up to the extremists interpretation of islam and anybody who program advertises it. so we need to protect our borders and the clearest thing that i see from the trump administration is that they can identify very explicitly the fact that we have a battle of our generation right now that is ideological. i find that very refreshing. and what president-elect trump said is that we are going to have vetting process, his kellyanne conway has come out. [talking at the same time] >> stop interrupting me. >> no but you are what
5:50 am
president-elect trump said two days ago. >> came out very clearly. >> i'm talking about president-elect trump. >> just muslims, and we are going to -- >> if we are going to talk about what the president-elect said two days ago, the president-elect asked if the attack in berlin had him rethinking possibly adding a ban on muslims entering the country. >> exactly. >> from certain places. and all he said was that he thinks he has been 100% right about everything so far. >> exactly. and what he was talking about -- what he was talking about [ overlapping speakers ] coming up next. okay. thank you both. a parting shot from president obama snubbing our biggest ally israel at the united nations. this morning the president-elect has a promise for the u.n. and it may be the toughest part of your day wrapping all those christmas gifts. we are putting our skills to the test next. but first, a christmas greeting from one of our troops overseas. >> hi. i'm pfp parker currently

6:03 am
anis nephew and two others taken into custody suspected of being a part of the same extremist network. suspected of driving a truck into a large crowd at a christmas market in berlin on monday killing 12 people injuring dozens more. investigators believe he sent his nephew money to join him in europe but it remains unclear whether the suspects helped him flee berlin. he was shot dead by italian police yesterday in milan. we'll keep you updated on that story. and to another fox news alert, and an outpouring of support this morning for actress carrie fisher after suffering a cardiac event on an l.a.-bound flight. >> what the hell are you doing? >> somebody has -- >> love fisher's family saying she's in intensive care at an .
6:04 am
l.a. hospital. tweeting, carrie fisher, the whole world is sending you so much love. sending you the universe most powerful force. and a home grown terrorist arrested after pledging support to isis. you can see him there reportedly trying to buy a gun and discussing plans to carry out a lone wolf attack in arizona. phoenix authorities say they've been watching him for over two years now. documents show he researched midnight mass and which guns were most powerful. this is my favorite story of the morning. this will give you chills. a 10-year-old girl with autism giving a powerful rendition of "halleluijah." it is now going viral. take a listen. ♪ ♪ with every breath i'm saying halleluijah ♪ >> that just give you chills?
6:05 am
well, a student in northern ireland, getting millions of views on social media. her music teacher encouraged her to sing solos during concerts to help build her confidence. and there she is just mesmerizing all of us. >> terrific. let's toss to rick for some weather. oh, rick, what are you doing? he's hiding over in the weather center. >> yeah. i'm just sitting here making some apps. >> all right. maybe we'll go to you later. >> we'll give you time to figure it out if you want. >> yeah, rick's behind the curtain. >> i'm right here. >> don't mind the guy behind the curtain there. >> yeah, why, i had no idea. >> no big deal, buddy. >> people always want to know, rick, behind the scenes of television. this is what it's like. >> so right behind this wall is right here where i was standing. i was drinking something, eating some of santa's candy and making a mess. >> reindeer crackle. >> reindeer crack is what they called it. that might make sense now. all right. here you go, big storm for tomorrow across the central plains. snow across parts of the dakotas.
6:06 am
a blizzard warning in effect. i think we'll see winds maybe 40 to 50 miles an hour along with that snow. so whiteout conditions, dangerous heading to grandmother's house tomorrow. some severe weather also across parts of the central plains, but really warm across the south. in fact, not just the south, 62 for a high in kansas city. currently you're 25, but get ready for this warm air to start moving up in there and that's where we might see that severe weather. aside from that for today we've got some storms across parts of the tennessee valley. those are not going to be that bad though. they will be gone by this afternoon and people can do some shopping. there you go. i'll go back around behind the wall. >> on the fly, i got to say. >> thank you, i had no idea. >> i give it the chocolate candy. >> i'm full. i feel like it's christmas day right now like after you've had christmas dinner. just from that santa candy. >> it's good, isn't it? >> i know. christmas eve clash, president obama on the way out the door. >> yeah. >> basically a big snub to israel. and don't take it from us, the new york daily news, which has been very supportive of president obama, hillary clinton during the campaign, obama
6:07 am
shafts israel. that's their lead headline today. before the u.n. basically this u.n. resolution that the u.s. could have vetoed and it's been longstanding u.s. policy, democratic and republican presidents, that israel should stop the settlements, but it's also been longstanding u.s. policy, democrats and republicans, to make sure you veto these resolutions, block these anti-israel resolutions which the u.s. could have easily done before the u.n. security council, but instead the u.s. abstained allowing this to go forward and among other things makes it illegal for jews to pray at the western wall. >> this is something only president obama had the power to veto or not to veto. and obviously he made that decision yesterday. people are up in arms today including a number of democrats, by the way, who are angry at this decision. we had governor mike huckabee on this morning. he said this is basically president obama giving the big middle finger as he's walking out the door.
6:08 am
and charles karrauthammer, he w speaking last night, here's what he said, he said this is going to be a very tough thing to overturn -- oh, we don't have that sound. but he was just saying basically what president obama did was throw out a bunch of land mines that are going to be really tough for this incoming administration to have to fix. >> there's no way president obama would have snubbed israel like this. because he'd want to set the table to have a new day between president-elect hillary clinton and prime minister benjamin netanyahu. instead a little stink bomb for donald trump. >> a nkt in office say remember there are a lot of democrats that support israel, we might need them four years from now when president hillary clinton would be up for re-election. so you do wonder how much of this is just about making a mess for the next president, donald trump. but -- and donald trump did tweet yesterday as to the u.n., things will be different after january 20th. but you've got ben rhodes, the white house deputy national security advisor now, he's out
6:09 am
there -- again, he's somebody who had to apologize to a lot of people for a "new york times," i believe it was -- >> "new york times" magazine piece where he said, set up this fake narrative. >> a fake narrative about the ie iran deal. >> listen what he said about trump doing all of this and how he thinks it's not right because there should just be one president at one time. >> on the president-elect, the first thing i'd just say is that there's one president at a time. president obama is the president of the united states until january 20th. and we are taking this action of course as u.s. policy. and as i also said, this has been longstanding bipartisan u.s. policy to oppose this type of settlement activity going forward. >> the talk about one president at a time, you wonder how much of that is just because the president-elect is getting all the attention for anything
6:10 am
domestic. he's making deals with carrier and boeing and lockheed, international tweets about nuclear arsenal -- nobody has any idea what the president is doing unless he breaks decades of diplomatic protocol. and the other thing that is so surprising is that this is what ben rhodes is getting upset about because they know that stuff is going to change. president-elect trump said that he was going to undo basically every executive order that the president has put in place. >> sure. >> what if ben rhodes was more exercised in doing something about the slaughter in syria, what about the hypocrisy. mainstream media freaked out when president-elect donald trump took a phone call from -- this is not diplomatic niceties and now president obama snubs israel and democrat senators like chuck schumer, not according to republicans and mainstream media, okay, this is fine. >> this is a tough one to criticize president-elect trump on because he's tweeting again about another victory. he talks about cutting costs and bringing more jobs back to the
6:11 am
u.s. in this case lockheed martin, the ceo, she's committing to driving down the cost. this is what trump tweeted yesterday -- or thursday after the meeting he had with the ceo says, based on the tremendous cost and cost overruns of the lockheed martin f-35, i've asked boeing to price out a comparable f-18 super hornet. this is a statement that was then released from the lockheed martin ceo marilynn hewson said i had a very good conversation with president-elect trump that assured him i heard his message loud and clear about reducing the cost of the f-35. i give him personal commitment to drive the cost down aggressively. this is one of those things where you think if people just had conversations, if they just meet in person and say, you know what, this doesn't make a lot of sense, we've got to bring this costs down. to which the ceo says you're probably right about that, let me see what i can do. >> well sure, but why did it take for some tweets for them to say we're going to be more careful with taxpayer money. they should have been from the
6:12 am
first day whether it's democratic or republican. >> you know why? because their stock tanked when the president-elect said he was going to give boeing a chance instead. boeing, who he had a very nice meeting with, boeing guy said, yeah, we're going to make air force one for cheaper and make the f-35 components for cheaper. but also the f-35 is 20% -- makes 20% of all the revenue for lockheed martin. so if that goes away, that ceo would be in really big trouble. and this is, you know, donald trump wrote a book the year i was born, "the art of the deal." it's completely different now. he's got twitter. twitter wasn't around in 1987. now all he has to do, hey, boeing, you're in trouble. >> but when it comes to taxpayer money -- >> then go to florida and okay, we're sorry. >> when it comes to taxpayer money, this is a big deal. >> this is billions of dollars. billions of billions, not chump change. >> if there's one thing mr. trump understands, it's the business world. he's saying when i come in there, it's going to be different. it's going to be a new chapter. whether it is dealing with our ally israel or if it's, you
6:13 am
know, dealing with -- >> what about all this russian interference in the election? now post election vladimir putin calling democrats sore losers. and what's interesting, you know, the left is getting upset about this, even more outraged about it and basically saying, you know, because he called them sore losers and donald trump is saying, yeah, it's not so bad. it's true. and people are freaking out about it. >> yes, we're going to have juan williams on the show to get a little reaction to what he thinks about all of that. >> that's not all. you want to know what christmas is like at the huntsman household? abby took us home for the holidays. first, a christmas message from one of our troops serving overseas. hey, guys, first class hart stationed in germany, want to wish my family a merry christmas and happy holidays. love you guys.
6:14 am
6:15 am
6:16 am
and vladimir putin sending a strong message to hillary clinton and other democrats yesterday, don't be sore losers. >> yep. the russian president slammed white house leaders for blaming their loss on russian hackers during his annual press conference. president-elect donald trump agreeing on twitter writing this, vladimir putin said today about hillary and dems, in my opinion it is humiliating, one must be able to lose with dignity. that is so true. >> here to weigh in he's co-hosting "the five," our buddy juan williams.
6:17 am
>> good morning, juan. >> good morning. merry christmas to you. for friends, you got to say a special merry christmas. >> that's right. you're one of my dearest friends. >> oh, i love that. >> we're very close. >> i have no doubt you've got some thoughts on this tweet yesterday from president-elect donald trump. >> well, you know, i really like the end of it. you didn't show this, but he said, you know, that's fine what mr. putin had to say, but he hopes they can have some comedy and don't have to go and here i'm paraphrasing if not quoting we don't have to take an alternate path, and that would be more towards the idea of a nuclear arms race or some conflict between russia and the united states. but, abby, overall, you know, being the christmas season, i'm kind of reminded of like "the grinch," or scooge turning to the child that got cold and turning and saying why don't you just be more dignified about
6:18 am
getting the coal, about being a sore loser, i thought that was putting insult to injury. >> when you talk about our relationship with russia and sort of this new chapter with president-elect donald trump going in there, seems like every presidency passed the american people have allowed them to press the reset button, let them see what they can do. it doesn't seem like as many people are allowing at least at this point early on for president-elect donald trump to do that. just to at least see what he can do, to press that reset button. why are people not willing to just give him the benefit of the doubt here? >> well, i think obviously all the events of the campaign season color our view of the relationship between donald trump and vladimir putin and the idea that they've had a bromance and that they praised each other. leads people to really kind of cast a quizzical eye at what is the reality of that relationship skpr , and is it the case putin wanted trump to win because he believes somehow that's going to help the former soviet union,
6:19 am
russia, regain some of its power and influence in the world. there are many americans including president obama who said recently that ronald reagan would be rolling over in his grave to see so many republicans and so many americans now open to the idea of doing business with putin. and yesterday putin had a very intriguing response, abby. he said, you know, he thinks that democrats should realize that franklin roosevelt would be rolling over in his grave to see them suffer so many defeats in the recent election. >> on that point about democrats, juan, as a democrat, what do you think about -- abby raised that point, about giving each president a fresh start. even if there are raw feelings about the past election, you have this guy getting on a jetblue flight a couple days ago and accosting ivanka trump and her small children sitting right there. and then you have these hollywood stars saying they're going to do an alternative event. it's a free country, they can do whatever they want, but they want to try to counter donald trump's inaugural ceremony. they want to boycott anybody
6:20 am
performing at his inaugural. why can't the man have a day? >> hey, i think he should have more than a day. and as a democrat, i think i am even more of an american. and you've got to say he's our president. so i didn't vote for donald trump. no surprise. but you know what, i have to hope for donald trump's success because i want my country, i want my family in this christmas eve to do well, ed. i think all of us want success for our country. >> i like that message. you're not going to get coal for christmas, i have a feeling. >> you're a sweetheart, abby, thank you. >> merry christmas. >> merry christmas, guys. bye. >> just when you thought she was gone for good, jill stein is back. >> really? >> she's got a bone to pick with the doj. >> up next, what is christmas like in my house? i'm going to take you home for the holidays. >> awe. >> we all shared a room for how many years? >> a long time.
6:21 am
>> whenever we went to bed, it was like i think i hear santa claus. we never slept.

6:25 am
all right. we are all about the family traditions. we've been watching christmas home videos with the doocy family all morning long, which has just made our day. but i went home and saw my family a few days ago because we're not able to be with our families this weekend to show just some of our traditions and the chaos that ensues in the huntsman household with dogs and seven kids. >> big family. >> yeah. >> hello! >> hey! >> home for the holidays, so nice. and it makes you think about all the years growing up and the traditions that we have. we do pajamas every christmas eve we open them up together. we stay in them the whole next day. we all kind of jump in bed early together, watch a christmas movie, make cookies. that's what the holidays are for. i have such good memories of being together.
