less violence and donald trump making big changes. >> on facebook, she's looking forward to our country being respected and feared once again. there we have it. "fox and friends" starts right now. thanks for joining lisa and i. good morning. it's tuesday, december 27th. i'm abby hundreds mants in for ainsley earhardt. he campaigned hard for hillary clinton and she lost. president obama insists he could have beaten president trump. >> again, i articulated. i think i could have mobilized a majority of people to rally behind her. >> the president-elect is firing back. >> wow. >> tensions escalating also between the u.s. and it was supposed to be the greatest mideast ally. they claim president obama was behind that u.n. resolution. >> we have evidence, it's clear, that the u.s. orchestrated that. >> what was just revealed about
that proof coming up. you've seen -- try it again. you've seen the hooters girls. but soon you'll be seeing these bombshell girls, the military themed concepts coming to a city right near you. >> oh, boy. >>s you reflect on that. mornings are better with friends. remind you of our slogan. ♪ ♪ if you look closely, the way to get in here is to have one of our passes. i get the sense that it feels like it's a holiday in new york. you have to have a pass to get in that building. >> exactly. >> depends where you go in new york city. when you're in times square area, it is mayhem. it is chaos. if you go in other parts, it's
like desolate. no one is there. it's kind of nice, you never see the city like that. >> people were banging on the windows last night in tucker's cho imt there's a random guy there. >> when tourism increases, we get more and more fans. people outside new york city who really support fox. >> this is amazing. instead, i like to go through nine inches of glass first. >> there was news out yesterday in the political world where president obama gave a review with david axelrod and he was asked could he have beaten donald trump in this past election. and he said -- >> can't help himself in this situation. >> he said he could. here's what he said. >> i am confident in this vision because i'm confident that if i had run again and articulated it, i think i could have
mobilized a majority of the american people to rally behind it. >> one of my first reactions, so russia was not the biggest factor in the election? he's saying, like if i had mobilized the majority, the russia thing we've said for the last month was the big reason why hillary clinton lost. he's now admitting that hillary clinton was a bad kate despite everything he said for so long. he says he's better than she is. president obama's approval ratings have inched up. but people get tired of you and there's this tradition. get off the stage. >> he has -- beginning in 2010 when people voted for other people than him, also when you go out and people mock and late night hosts focus on donald trump's confidence and they say oh, my goodness, there's no difference, it's over delivery.
he's smoother, more articulate. more refined, but barack obama is the same thing as donald trump. he has an inability to admit his flaws or state his policies are incorrect. it's how they're digested and communicated is the problem. it's not the policies. the perfect example is what's happening. we'll talk about it shortly, israel. you talk our most loyal middle east ally and threw them in the street. >> senator schumer is against it. barack obama says it, leaves the stage and leaves democrats to deal with it. >> that might be one of the smartest things you ever said. that is so, so true. not many people including -- they never pick up on that. >> what was the smartest thing he said? >> how important delivery is. when you look past that, how similar the politicians are at the end of the day. if you remember back in september, president obama gave a speech saying that it would be
an insult to him and his presidency if blacks and hispanics did not come out in numbers. >> they screamed it. he looked angry. >> we have that sound. >> let's hear it. >> i will consider it a personal insult, an insult to my legacy if this community lets down its guard and fails to activate itself in in election. >> that's what happened. they did not come out in the numbers for hillary clinton. here he's saying if he were in the race this past go around, he could -- >> if oinl i was on the ballot and only my coalition had mobilized. but you did say my name is not on the ballot, but my legacy is on the line. >> what i found disturbing, when i originally heard this, he brings up race again in in way. if we can't find a way to breakthrough and win races and winning back southern white voters without portraying our way to civil rights and
diversity. saying we can't get over the south because the south is not over what their history is back to the civil war, the democrats did own the south. they lost the south and now the republicans are holding on to the south. through values and work ethic. it's the bathroom situation, it's jamming obamacare. it's not because the south doesn't like black people. >> also barack obama and hillary clinton are not listening to someone important. bill clinton has been saying don't dismiss the southern white voter thing. they really have concerns and focused on jobs, not race. >> not race. >> nobody will listen to bill clinton. he's saying it. >> it's all this talk of russia is to blame for this. i've gone around to the diners around the country and talked to the voters. many have been democrats like in scranton, pennsylvania. i asked why they switched their votes. two big issues. immigration, president-elect trump running on stricter laws and obamacare. those are big things that
president obama is hoping will be his legacy. >> i was curious to see if donald trump, who has been lauding the fact that he and the current president are getting along great and he's been a great adviser to him, what would he do with that statement. here's what he said. relatively measured. president obama said he thinks he would have won against me. he should say that. i say no way exclamation point. jobs leaving, isis, obamacare, et cetera. that's pretty measured. he's not dumping on president obama. he doesn't want a war. it's smart politically. i think he's thanked president and michelle obama. he's been kind to my family. he's looking forward. >> president obama is going across the street. he said on the axle report in that podcast. i think it was interesting give and take between them. he's been somewhat critical -- >> but he said in a report, basically he says i'm going to be speaking out when things are not right and there's no
necessarily great speaker right now. >> it's a free country and barack obama can do that. that is breaking with tradition. >> i was just going to say that. >> do you think that when barack obama is a new president was trying to shut down gitmo, trying to tear apart his approach to the war on terror. he wasn't going nuts in texas. of course he was. he said, i'm done. there's change happening. let him have his -- >> it's called statesman ship. what happened to that? you let the next administration come in and do what they're going to do. >> i owe my successor my silence. george bush said that. the united nations resolution against the settlements in the west bank. israel doubling down, insisting the u.s. is behind this. >> the country could face serious economic backlash in the settlements, including maybe sanctions by the european union. >> with the latest details that everyone is still talking about
this morning. kristin fisher has more. >> abby, it's important to keep in mind this is a nonbinding resolution. it has no teeth. it's all guidelines and recommendations. but that could change. not only does this resolution demand that israel stop all settlement activity in the west bank. it also calls intoquestion, the legality of jewish prayer at the western wall, according to this resolution, the jewish quarter in the old city of jerusalem is occupied territory. the problems are it opens the door for potential boycotts of israeli products that are produced in jewish settlements in the west banks. if other nations don't boycott their products, perhaps they'll label them as settlement products. another concern, that it opens the door for lawsuits against israeli officials and the icc. that means government ministers and senior officers could be accused of war crimes under the
geneva convention. finally, it could lead to the creation of mechanisms to monitor and report israeli action. just because this resolution doesn't have any teeth, it's still a huge symbolic blow for the people. it could have real life ramifications down the road. >> thanks so much, kristin. we'll talk to you later. "the new york times" first story is the israel is not backing down. they're beginning construction on 600 of the 5,480 new settlements in the area. game on. meanwhile, the israeli ambassador to the united states is promising to deliver proof. he said this a couple of times yesterday, here's ambassador ron der mer, first to trump and then he's going to tell everybody. we have that evidence. as i said earlier, we're going to present it to the new administration. if they choose to share with the american people, that's up to them. what david said is parts of what
we have. it's very clear that the u.s. orchestrated that. >> what's significant is the white house has been downplaying this, like it wasn't us, it was of the other countries. >> it was venezuela. >> and new zealand. the other part of that, we're not going to make it public. we'll give it to the new trump administration. it's probably on twitter in ten minutes. what do you think? it's not like donald trump will sit on this information. >> there have been questions from both sides of the political aisle over the years of the importance and do we really need this in place. what do they do at the end of the day. charles krauthammer was on last night and he's thoughtful about this. he has an interesting idea of what we should do with the u.n. here's what he says. >> it is an organization that exacerbates tension, it does not assuage them. it was born in hope, at the end of the second world war. it tushd out to be a disaster. any mover to minimize our support for it. any move to get it out of the
u.s. imagine if headquarters were in zimbab zimbabwe. the amount of coverage and weight it gets is zero. i think it's good real estate in downtown new york city and trump ought to find a way to put his name on it and turn it into condos. >> the u.n. condos? >> get together and hang out. he says it's a shame, sad. they don't really get anything done down there. >> doesn't donald trump have a building across from the u.n.? i remember derek jeter living there. >> i think you're right about that. >> he's smart enough to know, i'm going to live in new york a little while but keep my residence in florida because they have no state tax. >> that's derek jeter. >> donald trump might be doing that too. >> by the way, if we toss to heather, she's also tax-free. >> welcome back heather. >> how are you doing? >> great to see you guys. hope you had a wonderful christmas. good morning to all of you. start with a fox news alert. there's a manhunt intensifying at this hour for the last of six
inmates who broke out of jail by using a leaky toilet. police in eastern tennessee now warning that convicted felon david frazier seen right here is considered the most dangerous of that bunch. they escaped by ripping a toilet off the wall. it had rusty bolts and they kicked down a door. memorials growing for george michael as mystery surrounds his death. the music legends behind dozens of '80s and '90s mega hits. >> wake me up ♪ ♪ before you go go ♪ i got to have faith ♪ >> his partner found him dead in bed on christmas day. the singer was just 53 years old. it was heart failer his manager says. >> those are the headlines. see you back here in a little bit. >> thank you, heather. next on the rundown. we know what isis is capable of. we saw it again in berlin with the truck terror attack.
there are more terror threats, including secret jihadi camps. ryan morrow has more next. liberty mutual stood with me when i was too busy with the kids to get a repair estimate. i just snapped a photo and got an estimate in 24 hours. my insurance company definitely doesn't have that... you can leave worry behind when liberty stands with you™ liberty mutual insurance
we have to stop isis and knock them out. i have no choice. >> we'll do that. >> all right. president-elect trump vowing to take down isis. he's said it many times when he takes office. isis is not the only terror threat out there, sadly. here to map it out more is ryan morrow. he's a national security officer. we know that donald trump watches the show. donald it's more than isis, mr. president-elect. muslim brotherhood. >> it seems likely that president-elect trump will -- these are some of the fronts in the united states. they may not violently
retaliate. if there's a political crisis, you don't know what's going to happen. >> wait a second. before we do this, these are different camps in the u.s.? >> these are different front organizations for the muslim brotherhood. >> they claim they're foundations. >> we know they're muslim brotherhood front organizations. >> muslim of the americas, they claim to have 22 of the enclaves around the united states. they believe donald trump is going to crackdown on them. have law enforcement raid them and they see that as a full fillment. >> what did president bush say when he took on al qaeda when he was going to take on financing and may be getting financing from the u.s. he cracked down through the treasury. can you start choking some of the organizations out through the treasury? >> very possible. they engage in a lot of criminal activity, charter school scams. they used to have a 100-acre camp in colorado that was
raided. it can be done. this group believes that trump will do that. they're preparing for that. number 3, afghanistan. we don't hear too much about this. there are 20 terrorist organizations in this area. pakistan is down here. >> we have 10,000 troops in afghanistan. with those 10,000 troops, al qaeda is now back in there and they're coming from pakistan into afghanistan where they're facing our guys and getting additional training to disperse throughout the region. >> right. it's not just al qaeda. taliban controls a portion of the country. like iraq and syria, expect us to talk about afghanistan next year. >> let's move on to the other map. this is perhaps the most challenging. >> right. because the nuclear deal is a disaster. i hope that donald trump scraps it. but coming with that, there may be a mad dash towards nuclear weapons. how does that impact us?
you have to look at the shipping lanes. if you look at these two areas. very critical shipping lanes as well as right here. your livelihood economically depends upon those being free. iran has the capability to strike at them. the saudi oil fields as well. it's important for surviving economically. >> it's important to show strength and muscle early because our ships have been buzzed, our helicopters -- ships taunted and harassed in that area and done nothing to respond. what can donald trump do to send a message to iran, like toppling saah come. what do he do early? >> human rights rye violations. sanction the hell out of them for that. when it comes to the iranian, people they deserve it. >> boeing and their secret elements to the -- boeing and
company are doing deals with iran. you have the deals in place, they've gotten everything already for us to blow up the agreement would be to iran's advantage. that means they can get all the sanctions liflted and start their nuclear program. that's the challenge. >> it's working well for them. the last one, number one threat is who benefits from isis collapsing if general mattis bee heads them? is it al qaeda coming back for a new group rising? >> ryan morrow, thanks so much. even though we're winning against isis, they're still there. coming up straight ahead, what do a millionaire, state lawmaker and drug dealers have in common? the they all got busted for using food stamps this year? is it finally time to end that program? we debate it. you've seen the hooters girls too often. but soon you'll be seeing the bombshell girls. the military-themed concept coming to a city near you.

gun control sit-ins on the house floor. last summer they did it for 25 hours. next, 100. that's how many low kapgss the houston-based bombshell bars want to -- in the next five years. the military-themed restaurant has scantily clad waitresses and food and drinks. finally, one. ♪ >> number one. that's where jackie -- her album sales skyrocketed after she agreed to sing at president-elect trump's inauguration. >> what you call karma. thank you, ed. food stamp fraud at an all-time high. a state lawmaker and a millionaire. this year it's estimated $70 million of taxpayer money was wasted on food stamp fraud.
is it time to end the program altogether? here to debate is fox news contributor jimmy green and councilman joba really who has fought against it in the new york assembly. good morning to both of you. >> good morning. >> joe, when we're talking about this, it's doing away with the programs that help the people that need it most. help the people understand this. >> the republican party can't be in perception or in practice, seen as throwing people to the curb. that said, this program has been ripe with problems since the inception. bob dole said in 1977 we're eliminated the greed and fed the need. unfortunately, 40 years later, we see the same problems with fraud, with abuse and overspending on this particular program. >> a lot of democrats are saying we need more of this.
>> well, we certainly have to have this conversation by looking at the facts. the facts are that 45% of the recipients of snap programs are under the age of 18. 9% of them are over the age of 60. this is a program that keeps young people and elderly people out of poverty. this is also a program that, of course, as we look at any government program, there's going to be fraud. how do we correct the problem without the throwing the baby out with the bath water. this lifts families on the brink of poverty, stops them from jumping into poverty and helps local economies. food stamp benefits for every $5 that's spent, $9 goes into the local economy. that's not just something you can throw out. and when you look at what president obama has done in the last eight years, we've seen the greatest stalling out of the economic inequality growth stopping under his programs.
this is one of the reasons why. >> but there has been a lot of abuse, a lot of people taking advantage of these programs. that is a problem here. who are these people, joe? >> we're talking about 1% of snap program lost through fraud with the latest report. she's right. there is a lot of good happening from the program. the problem is when house republicans in 2014 proposed modest cuts, they got castigated by democratic colleagues in calling us heartless, saying we're kicking people to the and that sort of thing. what other program costs double and quadruple and we're not supposed to look at it and look for cuts. the democratic party wants taxpayers to put blinders on and feel good that we're helping people. we need to look at programs that cost beyond what they're expected to cost and look for reforms. >> you said earlier there are problems that exist, there is fraud taking place.
is there another solution? is there a way for both sides to come together to make this as as effective as possible? >> there are going to be bad apples like i said in any program. how do you weed those out? that should be the focus. when you look at economic inequality, without food stamps, families are going to jump into poverty and that is not something that we want to see reversed. you can't talk about this program without looking at the impact of the great recession. when you had income inequality growing under the recession what didn't grow was food insecurity. that is because this program was pumped in with more money. that is so key to keeping kids and the elderly, local businesses thriving off of it. this is not something that i think donald trump is going to embrace in his administration or house republicans are going to embrace. >> is it something that speaker paul ryan has been passionate about, getting it right, joe. is it something that can be and
will be done in the next four years? >> i think it will be. there's a number of ways to use means tested method and metrics to determine new criteria for people, whether it be income and asset calculation and various things. paul ryan doesn't want people to fall off the welfare cliff. we don't want people to come to the point where making an extra $10,000 to $15,000. if you're a reasonable person trying do the right thing, you're not going to make the sacrifices against your best interest. to be clear, this is not something expanded because poverty increased. the poverty has increased throughout the obama administration in the great recession, but a lot of the changes were made policywise during the bush administration and in 2002 and 2008 bundle. >> thank you both for being here, joe, gentleman mu. we told you, all he wanted for christmas was a white
illusion. some we can talk about, some we can't. the second girl's legs behind the first. >> brian is stumped. >> when you're home for the holidays and nothing else to do. you sit and stare at photos. >> i saw plenty of legs in that shot. >> who is the girl with the bigger thighs? >> this is not going to end well. >> you can't say that. >> i'm just saying -- >> i saw plenty of legs. >> i heard you ask a woman how old she is. >> that was off camera. >> what i was saying is, i was admiring how well she's doing in her career so young. how old are you? ed thought that was the wrong thing to ask. >> you're not supposed to ask a lady her age and how big are her thighs. >> we got to get to weather. >> it's wreaking havoc on travelers trying to get home for
the holidays. the upper midwest, under 16 inches of snow shutting down areas of north dakota and south dakota and knocking out power to thousands. >> the storm system now weakening but causing hundreds of flight delays at airports around the country. freezing rain, drenching new england monday with more to come today. >> in some parts of florida, the warmest december on record. meteorologist janice dean tracking all the weather. six things to work with. are you going to choose any? >> six things. here's the thing. brian in the hallway complained about the fact that it was too warm in his office. i told him -- >> too cold in my office. >> it's warm outside. i said -- why do i need air conditioning in december? >> i'm not sure. >> who is paying for the freon. >> don't ask the weather person. >> all that warm air, we're setting records across florida. moved up to the northeast. it's 55 degrees in new york right now. i'm sporting a springtime
jacket. 25 in chicago, that's where the colder temperatures are across the midwest. you can see where the cold front is. look at the temperature difference from this time yesterday. 21-degree difference in new york city. you get the picture. cold air is moving in. for now, enjoy it. people will be wearing shorts in new york city, i guarantee it. weather delays, the faa says all is well. of course, it doesn't hurt to check with your air carrier if you're traveling today. we have a storm system exiting the east coast and a new one coming from the west. a winter storm thursday and friday here in the northeast. i think it's going to be too warm for a big snowstorm but, again, we're going to have to watch it. the new storm in the west behind that could give us a little bit of inclement weather for the new year's eve festivities. we'll have to watch that the next couple of days. brian, i apologize for the coolness in your office. nothing i can do about it. >> i like janice bringing out
another conversation you had off camera. >> why do i talk to anybody in the breaks? heather nauert, don't reveal anything i said. >> what did brian say to you in the commercial break? >> that he doesn't believe in christmas. >> what? that is not true. that is not true. >> good morning to all of you. we're off to a great day. speaking of christmas and over the weekend. look at this. it is a fox news alert. pandemonium and chaos at malls across the country. people literally fighting for the after christmas deals. incidents in malls at ten states. in new jersey, stampeding the exits after they thought a gun was fired. >> wait, wait. a s.w.a.t. team swarming the
mall finding no signs of a gun. fortunately, no one was hurt in the incidents. we have terrifying video. you have to see it to believe it. we should tell you, it does have a happy ending. a massive truck running over a toddler. as a grandmother pushes his stroller on a crosswalk in china. that little boy almost trapped underneath. but the 3-year-old miraculously walks away with scrapes and bruises. the truck driver got a fine that amounts to $20 for failing to stop at a red light. how terrifying. how lucky that little guy is. a professor with a history of hating white people says he's not the problem. instead, his critics of what he calls satirical remarks are the violent racists. he teaches at drexel university in philadelphia. over the weekend he tweeted all i want for christmas is white genocide. that sparked a nationwide outrage. now he says it was just a joke. drexel calling the post very disturbing and has a meeting set up with the professor to address
that. we'll follow that story and bring you the latest. monday night football, a high scoring affair. the dallas cowboys offensive weapons on display. they pummel the lions. our friend at cleveland. scott sabol finally shaving off that beard. the browns finally won. he vowed to keep it going. it took 109 days. here he is back to clean-shaven. scott, looking good. those are your headlines. >> speaking of football, let's talk about what happened on monday night and the nfl playoff picture breaks down. we know in the end, the super bowl will be a fox super bowl. here to break it down. rich, big daddy salgado. he handles a lot of the insurance for the players in the league. mark march toech i is the ceo of big blue travel. this is all about the fans. we'll talk about you in a second. real quick, when you saw that game last night and people looking at dallas, they have matched their season total, all-time season total for wins
in a regular season. how did this happen? >> they came out and they got the two probably reigning mvps with prescott and elliott on offense. they always have -- >> rookies. >> both rookies. it's going to be interesting who gets rookie of the year. >> is it good to have america's team good? is it good for football? >> it depends if you go to new jersey. >> people like it if the auto league -- is that marketing gold? >> obviously, if dallas goes to the super bowl it's great for football, it's great for dallas. you know, i have a prediction who is going to be there. >> who is in the nfc hunt? >> you've got dallas is at 1 and then you've got atlanta, seattle, green bay -- green bay and detroit play next week and the giants are in and they can always create havoc when they get in there. >> washington and tampa have to win. >> tampa, my husband is from that area.
every year he says he's going to make it to the super bowl. >> they have a 1% chance of getting to the super bowl. getting into the playoffs. >> getting into the playoffs. >> the cowboys haven't been able to solve the giants who i root for. we've got to say that. >> the afc. new england clinched. oakland, pittsburgh, houston, kansas city. a lot of other teams in the mix. >> right now, new england, unless they lose at miami, they seem to be holding down the fort. >> the most -- the last dynasty left in sports is new england. one of the great stories is the miami dolphins. terrible start. great finish. first time in the playoffs in years. >> our guy, mike tannenbaum is down there. >> revamped the whole thing. >> did it all over. good for him and good for them. >> what's the big prediction? if you had to guess right now. >> you know what, i'll get ridiculed to death. i'm going to say we're back. third dance.
giants/new england. >> third time. >> we'll see new england finally win this one. >> let's talk about the fans. what does big blue bring to the table? >> giants fans love to travel, they travel well. if you go to a road game, you see the other team's roads on the fans traveling to the gail, we provide the service. one key operation, turnkey go on big blue travel.com. we'll find out where we're going and hopefully this weekend we know where we're going and have a playoff trip online and we provide the travel to that city. we take them off the bus, bring them to the hotel and bring them to a party the night before the game with a couple of players. we have a tailgate party, the ticket to the game included, we sell that package through our website. evidently, giants super bowl would be tremendous, again. >> that's amazing. can we get a closeup of this ring. >> i was at the game when the jets hosted new england and brady came back at the end
there. the patriots fans travel well as well. they go all around the country. >> cowboys fans, steelers fans, raider fans and patriots fans travel well. >> it matters more to the league. as much as you like the players, they come and go. the average career is three or four years. but the fans don't go anywhere. that's the key. it's not about the giants. it's really about what fans will do and what the organizations do to make sure the fans are supported. >> we've been doing it 25 years. we've seen grand fathers with grandkids and their grandkids. it's a family tradition. families travel. >> one of america's best. >> it's going to be a great end of the season. >> rich, you're going on the road and bring us up close and personal. >> and in a couple of weeks you and i will be in houston. >> hopefully in the super bowl. fox sports. >> thank you, guys. >> america believes in his vision and he would have beaten
donald trump. if i had run again and articulated it, i think i could have mobilized a majority of the american people to rally behind it. >> if he's so good, why have democrats lost more than 1,000 seats since he took office? she's toxic but not dead. why the internet thinks she is it this morning. lemonheads/schoolhouse rock) zero really can be a hero. get zero down, zero deposit, zero due at signing, and zero first month's payment on select volkswagen models. right now at the volkswagen sign then drive event.

he could say that. i say no way. jobs leaving, isis, obamacare, et cetera. here to debate republican strategist and democratic strategist. steve, starting with you. how can president obama continue to say my policies, he said many times going back to the midterms of 2014 are on the ballot. he said it again in 2016 and he says he could have beaten donald trump. >> he said it in 2012 and won. they would have loved to have that approval level when they left office. i think i would have -- would be happy to say that all these problems are democrats in congress and in state legislatures would go away when obama left office. i'd be happy to say that not because i dislike him. i'd like to say we'd be better in the mid terms in 2018. that's not the case. i think it's a big reason for losing a lot of the seats. also, we have problems motivating our voters to vote for the state legislature races.
a lot of democrats say i vote for president, i vote for congress, maybe governor, but i leave the rest of the ballot empty and i under-vote. this is a problem we have to deal with going forward. i wrote about it in 2006. it's not the president's issue that we've lost all of the seats. >> david, i suspect you might, as a republican, wish even though you want donald trump to become president, another four years of barack obama, republicans to pick up more seats around the country? >> absolutely. the president has said it's going to be his number one priority after his presidency is to work to elect folks to congress and to state legislatures. given his track record, we welcome his involvement. where we now sit. look, it's going to take a case of amnesia for americans given president obama's policy results and his divisive governing style, it's going to take a severe case of national amnesia
to elect sun who wants to continue the path that he's started. the 2018 elections favor republicans in the u.s. senate and you look at 2022 when redistricting will have happened. the states that will pick up members of the u.s. house are all in states controlled by republicans in the state legislature. we potentially are going to see growing republican majorities the next coming years. >> steve, democratic seats lost since president obama took office. 1,030. that's all around the country. david points out that will affect redistricting at the end of the decade. these are republicans drawing up the lines for the new congressional districts and the house moving into the next decade. i don't understand how you can say, look, this has been a successful barack obama when all around the country, democrats have been losing seats. >> this has been the case, really, for the last 20 or 30 years. there's no question, we have a tremendous amount of challenges to turn this around. the biggest thing in our favor
is donald trump and the republicans taking power. i think the democrats never do so well as when the country has a chance to see what republicans are actually like when they're in power. that's what i think is going to really turn things around for us. i think actually seeing the results and i'm looking forward to watching the republicans trying to do better than president obama. >> david, give you 15 seconds. people think this is a dis on barack obama and donald trump. what about hillary clinton, he's basically saying i would have been better than her. >> democrats are coming to grips with the devastation that hillary clinton and barack obama have caused to their party. now you have the candidates running for dnc chairman all running against what has happened the last couple of years under barack obama in that they have not focused on their foreign team operations. they're working to build a team of folks to run for future office. >> a lot of work ahead for the democrats. we appreciate you both chiming in. he said the world was gloomy

israel doubling down insisting the u.s. is behind that u.n. vote against israeli settlements. >> don't be fooled by the fact that we abstained. it comes from worries that the country could expect economic backlash. >> what this resolution does is it opened the door to boycotts on israeli products and lawsuits against israeli officials, but perhaps the most symbolic blow for the israeli people is that it calls into question the legality of jewish prayer at the western wall because the ju wish quarter is quote, unquote, occupied territory. some of the other key concerns is that it could lead to potential boycotts of israeli products that are produced in jewish settlements in the west
bank. another concern that this resolution opens the door for lawsuits against israeli officials at the icc. that's the international criminal court. that would allow government ministers and senior officers to be accused of war crimes under the geneva convention and finally this resolution could lead to the creation of mechanisms to monitor and report israeli actions. so bottom line, because this is a nonbinding resolution, there should be no immediate effects. it's the potential long-term repercussions that has the israeli government so angry and so concerned. >> that's the deal. >> it's a big deal. >> donald trump about to take office, handed, you know, this big mess, basically. >> he tweeted out today, i'm still going to make middle east peace happen. it does going to be a lot harder because of this. >> you are watching the devastation of aleppo. millions have been forced out of there as refugees into western europe and see how devastation

territory. it's absurd. it's an insult to the intelligence of the world. >> he used that word it's an insult to the world. when there are so many issues we are faced with particularly in that part of the world in the middle east, why are we making our most important relationship in that region more challenging today. a lot of people are questioning how this came to be. was it preorchestrated. >> alan dershowitz says president obama stabbed israel in the back. and i asked another person yesterday and he said no, he's wrong. israel was stabbed in the front. >> the obama administration could make things even worse before they leave. secretary of state john kerry is going to make a speech on his vision and why he did what he did and that should be fascinating and confounding. also for those people who are

coach, because i could have beaten donald trump. listen. >> i am confident in this vision because i'm confident that if i had run again, and arctticulate it, i think i could have mobilized the majority of the american people to rally behind it. >> that is a slap to hillary clinton because she didn't. he does not see the fact that she ran on being the third term of his presidency and was rejected. hillary clinton is a surrogate for barack obama and she basically was unable to rally his base even though he was indefatiguible in supporting her. president obama says that he thinks he would have won against me. he should say that because i say no way. >> you think about the biggest issues that he ran on.

instead, he divided the nation. >> gary said something different on email where he had no limitations in terms of characters. people are fed up with obama and his policies. that's why trump got elected. politicians still do not get it. >> it's interesting, president obama doesn't want to get off the stage. think about president george w. bush. he handed him the keys. >> there's something called statesmanship, when you pass the torch on gracefully to the incoming administration. saying we've had our time. we're letting them do what they want to do. they have won. this is a democracy. >> george left with 36% approval rate and he's leaving with 56% approval rating. >> i'm very young guy, even though i'm one away. >> does he let keith ellison do the talking. >> he said it would be an insult to me. we saw the outcome before the

though they just abstained but one rabbi had a message of hope in a dark moment. >> i know that some of us are so sad about what happened there with regard to israel. we must remember that the way to counter any darkness, any disappointment is not with harsh rhetoric, not with anger but by creating light. >> so where can we find that light and move our relationship with israel forward? is it possible. joining us from tel aviv, ron prositer. where is the light, ambassador? >> first of all, you know, spreading light. i don't miss the united nations. i miss new york. it looks to me like the united nations is bashing israel. they are like drug addicts, they are constantly desperate for their fix and trying to increase the dose from one resolution to the other. >> and ambassador, it's a time
in which you would have loved to have served because israel at this time is getting more allies even in the middle east among sunni arab nations than ever before and it didn't stop the white house from doing what they did. in fact, they fired back at the upset coming from israel. eric schultz said this. president obama has done more for israel and its security than any previous u.s. president. president obama has already made israel and its security sacrosanct in his approach to these issues. the u.s. did not draft this resolution nor did the u.s. introduce this resolution. >> we have disagreements inside the family on a lot of things. friends don't take friends to the security council and what really happened here is that the obama administration basically took the steering wheel and brought it over to those
jeffersonian democracies like malaysia, senegal, to decide on israeli's face? and by the way, this resolution is to one-sided. it is bad for israel. it is bad for america and it is bad for the region because why would the palestinians, anyone, go back to direct negotiations, which they decertified two years ago if they can have freebis and get everything they want without doing anything. >> keep in mind, you don't have one voice to deal with. the leaders of the palestinian movement are a terrorist organization called hamas. when they say they have proof that the u.s. is behind this and the government says they don't. what do you know that we don't? >> well, i think ambassador derma is spot on and we know there were conversations made by people in the administration.
for example with the president of the ukraine, so in the sense, from my point of view, it's important to really look at this and say, hey, come on, the brits would use the term that the former ambassador to the united kingdom, it's not done. you don't really -- you can disagree with us, but turn over and give it to this body called the security council? the security council which a couple of months ago decided that israel does not have any connection or the jews to the temple mount of jerusalem decided in the world health organization that israel creates a health hazard in the middle east? i mean, come on. give us a break. this resolution is one-sided. it's vindictive. not only won't it bring peace about the region but it is destructive because everyone in the region looks at this and says, wow, we're looking for someone to hold our back, and this move was absolutely
unnecessary. >> right. >> and on the verge of being, you know, ill legitimate at the end of the obama administration. >> impair -- ambassador, russia carves up ukraine. vens wail has ha no money and they have fallen apart. i understand your frustration. not everyone agrees with what just happened here in america, and maybe you are going to see a different direction with this new administration. thanks so much. all right. coming up next. governor mike huckabee who has been to israel so many times they are sick of him and has been following the controversy and joins us next. and she's the country star with the golden voice. ♪ >> and lizzie has another message and parents, you are going to want to hear this. don't go anywhere. they are coming here. we live in a pick and choose world.

basically said this is like a big middle finger. you see what's going on. it's getting deeper. israel is saying this idea that the white house is down playing everything. we hardly knew about this. they have evidence suggesting president obama directed this whole thing. >> well, silence is agreement and by the u.s. being silent and abstaining, they did agree to it and i think they helped orchestrate it. i think israel will release that information. it's going to be very embarrassing. let's back up and remember what this is all about. they are trying to push israel into accepting borders that would essentially be a suicide pact if israel ever were to agree to it and to say that jerusalem should be divided, this is nonsense. jerusalem has been the capital for only one people in its entire history, dating back 4,000 years, and that's the jews. there's never been a palestinian capital or arab capital in jerusalem ever. to somehow act like that part of
jerusalem should be divided up and even for president obama to suggest that the western wall which is the one remaining part of the ancient temple should be part of disputed territory, here's what i would love for president obama to do. go to israel. go to the palestinian territory, either one. pick up a map made by the palestinians and look for israel on the map. you know what you won't find? it's not on there. you know why? because the palestinians don't think israel should exist. you can't make peace with people who don't even think you should be alive. >> here's the ramifications of the u.n. vote. the jewish prayer at the western wall wouldn't happen. potential boycott of jewish products, that could happen. labelling settlement products and potential boycotts of israeli products as well as monitoring israeli actions. all these things could take place, but is there any teeth to
this vote? >> well, let me just remind people. when you hear the word "occupied," that's a misnomer. israel owns this land. their deed dates back to the time of abraham. modern times, it goes back to the 1920s, then they had to continue to fight for it after it was not delivered, 6 million jews were systematicically slaughtered. over 3.2 million jews have gone back to israel to live and establish their homeland. they got to live somewhere. where are they going to live? these settlements are not tent cities. these are very established, well-built neighborhoods. i'll be there next week. where they go, the desert

michigan, pennsylvania, ohio? those aren't southern states. look, the rejection of barack obama in the south had nothing to do with race. it had to do with policy. it had to do with his pushing an aggressive abortion position upon people who think that life is precious and sacred. it had pushing an idea that we could redefine marriage from a biblical standard. it had to do with wrecking and destroying the economy and seeing people whose jobs provided them less money after years than it did before. it had nothing to do with color. it had to do with the content of the policy and the disaster that it wrought. >> we appreciate you coming in. a lot of other headline out there right now. >> let's get over to heather nauert for headlines. >> great to see everybody. i hope everyone is off to a great tuesday. pandemonium and chaos across the nation in mauls. people fighting over those after christmas deals. incidents reported in ten states

confident that if i had run again and articulated it, i think i could have mobilized a majority of the american people to rally behind it. >> you know what, initially people read this as a shot at donald trump. it's also a shot at hillary clinton. one of my buddies on facebook says for starters he doesn't have a private email server and he didn't give $225,000 speeches to goldman and sacks. even democrats were saying hillary clinton she's not the best candidate. before the election, they weren't saying that. president obama was out with her in philadelphia, tens of thousands of people. >> he and his wife michelle were out. he said would have been an insult to me if hillary clinton doesn't win the election.
we saw what happened. she ended up losing this election as he said back in september in this speech, this would be an insult to me. >> president obama ran against john mccain and he ran against mitt romney. he's got nowhere else to run against the tornado which is donald trump. hillary clinton still can't accept what happened. for anyone to see that donald trump would lose has not been paying attention. donald trump tweeted back with class to show he wants to rescue -- keep this relationship steady. he said president obama said that he thinks i would have won against me. he should say that, but i say no way, in caps. jobs leaving, isis, obamacare, et cetera. that's what really resonated. when he got michigan, wisconsin, took pennsylvania, he almost took minnesota, he did it because these people were out of work and felt like they were ignored. >> elections are always about the mood of the country at the
time. eight years ago, that was a movement and time people wanted hope and change. eight years later. it's a different mood. it's a different time this past go round and people are wanting a different direction than we've seen in the past eight years. donald trump campaigned on immigration. stricter laws on that. campaigned on obamacare, repealing that law. these are all issues. what president obama did is what jay-z and katy perry and bruce springsteen have done. he brings big crowds and emotions. when he leaves. >> barack obama is great for barack obama, but he's not proven great for the democratic party. >> we just showed the seats lost
since president obama took office. 1,300. >> he talks about if only i would have been on the ballot he would have won. you told the voters that my legacy is on the ballot, my issues are on the ballot and the voters rejected that legacy and the issues and the positions that he took and he says well, in this podcast later, it's fox news' fault. it's because of their negative influence. what binds all this together? a, he's arrogant enough to think i could win no matter what and when you say people rejected it, it's somebody else's fault. it's not my fault. >> it's easy to do when you don't want to put the blame on yourself. >> he goes out in what he thinks is a blaze of glory. one of things he did is took a shot to the solar plexus at benjamin netanyahu and israel. he said he had nothing to do with what happened at the united nations but samantha powers who
did nothing when 400,000 people lost their lives in syria when the red line was crossed and millions left and just pushed everyone to take in these refugees, she had to put her hand up and abstain when asked about a resolution that would stop all building in the west bank. and they believe, even though senegal sponsored it, along with new zealand and venezuela, they believe, does israel, that the u.s. was behind it, and authored it and when egypt stepped aside, they pushed it forward again on friday. here's ambassador ron dempleer. >> we have had that evidence and we're going to present it to the new administration and if they choose to share it with the american people that will be their shois. we have evidence. what david said is only part of what we have and it's very clear that the u.s. orchestrated that. >> they are handing that over to the trump administration. we'll see how they handle that. if they are going to release it all. we had governor huckabee on earlier, he's very concerned about what is going on with
this -- >> he's heading to israel next year. >> he goes there all the time. here have his biggest concerns. >> they are trying to push israel into accepting borders that would essentially be a suicide pact if israel ever were to agree to it and to say that jerusalem should be divided, this is nonsense. jerusalem has been the capital for only one people in its entire history, dating back 4,000 years and that's the jews. there's never been a palestinian capital, never been a arab capital in jerusalem ever. >> it always goes to the democrats. how much longer after moves like this? >> interesting question. governor huckabee said go to the palestinian side and ask them for a map and look for israel on the map. you won't find it. >> huckabee made the point when we were dealing with so much in that part of the world, so many things that are uncertain, most importantly terrorism, why are we spending our time -- why is
the u.n. spending their time making our most important relationship in the middle east more difficult and more challenging. >> donald trump was tweeting this was just a club for people to get together and talk and talk for free. >> his previous tweet all about how, he said have a good time, so sad. >> his previous tweet he had written a couple days ago, basically said all of this is going to change at the u.n. come january 21st. we'll see. >> he's made that very clear. krauthammer was on and he gave an interesting idea as to what we should do with the u.n. he was on last night. here's what he said. >> it is an organization that exacerbates tensions. it does not assuage them. it was born in hope. the end of the second world war. it turned out to be a disaster. any move to minimize our support for it, any move to get it out of the u.s., imagine if headquarters were in zimbabwe, the amount of weight and coverage it would get would be zero.

the replacement of our beloved justice scalia will be a person of similar views, principles, and judicial philosophies. very important. >> that was president-elect donald trump back in july talking about appointing, nominating a new supreme court justice. not only does mr. trump have that important position to fill, he has more than 100 federal court vacancies to also fill. double that what president obama had in his first term. here to way in, it's going to impact all of our viewers.
we appreciate you coming in. we'll get to the supreme court in a moment. let's talk about these federal court vacancies and what issues like gun control that might really see an impact quickly. >> the fact of the matter is when you look at the lower courts, the courts of appeals, that's where most of the cases are decided. on the issue of abortion, on the issue of second amendment rights, on the issue of executive power, those cases are generally decided by the courts of appeals. it's only a very few, less than 100, usually less than 90, that actually get to the supreme court of the united states. so the reshaping, so to speak of the federal judiciary, you've got the fourth circuit and 11th circuit now very closely divided, a trump judicial selections will have big impacts for generations on the federal judiciary no doubt. . supreme court, i mentioned. only one vacancy for could be talk about that in a moment. but the u.s. court of appeals, 14. u.s. district courts, 84.
the u.s. court of international trade, two, and the u.s. court of federal claims, six. talk about why this is important when you note a moment ago you noted a lot of these used to be conservative courts, now they are evenly divided. could donald trump now tip the balance in the favor of the right? >> he can. and i think he will with his judicial selections. the issue that's in the news right now today is the issue involving israel. you know, there was a case that ended up -- went through the d.c. circuit court of appeals. ended up at the supreme court of the united states on whether jerusalem could be recognized as the capital, that case is probably coming back and the nature of the judiciary impacts even issues like that. so you look at the ability to impact the court for generations, and donald trump, president-elect donald trump, that's what he has, as you know this, the fact of the matter is we're going to see -- we've got one vacancy now. a hypothetical vacancy.
another one in a couple of years. >> and democrats upset about obama's nominee getting a vote. krauthammer saying he thinks that donald trump should pick a fight with this nominee and not trying to have some compromise pick. go hard right. show conservatives he's serious about tilting the court. >> i look at some of the nominees. bill pryor from the 11th circuit. dyan sanks. these are judges with a proven record and philosophy. first of all, we're replacing the late, great justice antonin scalia. it needs to be someone in that judicial mold. no need to compromise. you got to go full bore. we should not hesitate in working these nominations
through. period. [ voices overlapping ] >> i talked to a high-level source who told me a couple of days ago that there could be four or five supreme court nominations in trump's first term because of retiemplets -- retirements and health issues. >> you've got octogenarians on the court. may not want to serve until they are 90. they may want to teach. if you look at the statistics, there's probably going to be two to three selects. that's the supreme court for the rest of my lthing -- lith -- litigating exterior. >> let's be clear. you are a still young man so a long time. the video is unbelievable. a toddler run over by a truck and yet the toddler was able to walk away. what happened to the driver who hit him?

for the dallas police department who trained for sniper situations. he knew that day that you had to go right at the sniper and not sit and wait. he ran to them and got shot and gave up his life. so many acts of her rowism. we have to send a message to america and most certainly to first responders families that when something horrific happens like that, we're going to be there for them. we're going to support those families and take off that added pressure of maybe their mortgages and whatever it may be. that's what we're focusing on. paying off these mortgages around the country. >> i love that. >> the viewers are great. the tunnels to towers. we have an $11 campaign. just $11 could change somebody's life forever. >> i love that. because so often we report on stories and it's forgotten about and you don't think about the families that are left behind and how their lives have changed. there's one story in particular, an officer in iowa. tell us about that.
>> well, if you remember during the elections, there were two police officers that were assassinated in iowa, and we went there. we came here on your show, again, as we do many times asking for help, and last week, we were able to pay off the mortgage. it was nearly almost $200,000. your views donated money. we were here with rudy giuliani asking for support, and we were able to accomplish that mission, but it was forgotten about because it was during the elections and we're not going to forget. our foundation is not going to gert. "fox & friends" most certainly doesn't forget. your viewers don't forget. last week, we did all five mortgages for the dallas police officers, the mortgage for iowa and we delivered a home for a double amputee in canton, ohio. >> how have the families responded? >> i'll tell you, they are very grateful. they know that it's an added pressure that they don't have to think about anymore.
you know, we first did that here in new york city just two years ago because it was the anniversary on december 20th for officers liu and ramos and we were able to raise enough money to pay off their mortgages and pay off their homes. our mission is to make sure that we are there for first responders and our military in times of crisis. thank you for being our partner. >> so great. thanks so so many people out there who donate. where did people go if they want to make a difference? >> tunnels2towers org. it's $11 we're asking for. stand tall is our campaign. they stood tall for us. these men and women in uniform. our first responders. we have to stand tall with them. >> thanks for being here this morning. such an incredible mission that you guys are doing. still to come, it is the picture that has everyone

narrow trading range of just 35 points, went over the unchanged lines 171 times. while we're less than 70 points away from dow 20,000, there's still the belief we can do it this week. there's no doubt when you walk around the floor, everybody thinks we're going to hit it at least sooner than later and that's because of all the optimism. >> nicole, you are looking for a reason why. there's no reason why. oil going up, oil going down. >> no, there is reasons why. better ideas from trump. pro business policies. we have seen energy rising higher which has helped energy stocks. the bad side of that is gasoline prices go up and that does hurt some consumers. but spiking mortgage rates that's also going to hurt consumers. >> you don't see any reason why it would or wouldn't go over 20,000.
there's no big news that came in that might propel today being the day. >> very passionate about this, nicole. >> there's no actual reason why today is the day. i will say the optimism continues on wall street. the financials will have a better deal and less regulation and the idea is that we will continue to trend to the upside. to down 19,000 was in november, and i've been wearing and i'm pretty tired of wearing it since last tuesday. dow almost 20,000. it's a psychological number. >> nicole, we'll get you a new hat by the end of the year. >> the big picture here is that the psychology, hope, optimism, better earnings, so there really is this good feeling on wall street overall and for u.s. companies. >> that's a good way to go into year 2017. >> nicole, good to see you this morning. >> let's hope this week, let's get it in.
