if you see something as simple as this, say something to law enforcement so we can take action, trish. >> i want to point out, the president of the united states as well as shinzo abe are about to speak. "the five" will carry that for you next. you're looking live at pearl harbor in hawaii where president obama and shinzo abe are about to speak. the attack that drew the world into world war ii. >> translator: i stand here at he pearl harbor of japan. if you listen closely, we can make out the sound of restless waves breaking and retreating
again. the color is radiant with the gentle sparkle of the warm sun. behind me, a striking, white form and atop is the "uss arizona" memorial. together, with president obama, i paid a visit to that memorial, the resting place for many souls. it was a place which brought utter silence to me. inscribed there are the names of the servicemen who lost their
lives. sailors and marines from various other places serving their nobel duty of protecting the homeland that they loved, lost their lives. amidst searing flames that day when aerial bombing tore the "uss arizona" into even 75 years later, the "uss arizona" now at rest atop the seabed is the final resting place for a tremendous number of sailors and
marines. listening again as i focus, alongside the song of the breeze and rumble of the rolling waves, i can almost discern the voices of those crewmen. voices of lively conversations, upbeat and at ease on that day, voices of young servicemen talking to each other about their futures and dreams, voices
in their very final moments. voices praying for the happiness of children still unborn. each and every one of those servicemen had a mother and a father anxious about his safety. many had wives and girlfriends they loved and many must have had children they would have loved watch grow up. all of that was brought to an
end when i contemplate that solemn reality, i am rendered entirely speechless. rest in peace, precious souls of the fallen. with that overwhelming sentiment, i cast flowers on behalf of japanese people, upon the waters where those sailors and marines sleep. president obama, the people of the united states of america and the people around the world as the prime minister of japan, i
offer my sincere and ever lasting condolences to the souls of those who lost their lives here as well as to the spirits of all of the brave young and women and also to the souls of the countless innocent people who became victims of the war. >> all right. we are monitoring this news conference as well as monitoring an evacuation at trump tower. we don't have details. we have a reporter on the way to the scene. nypd tells us that the trump tower is being evacuated for some reason. we are also going to monitor the event in hawaii when president obama takes the microphone. we'll go back to him. in the meantime, very sad news
to report tonight. in case you're just tuning in. actress carrie fisher died after suffering a massive heart attack from london to l.a. she was best known in her role in "star wars" aspirin says leia. >> i should have expected to find you holding the leash. i recognize your foul stench when i was brought on board. >> fisher was 60 years owed. now, kennedy an icon. they called her hollywood royalty. >> she was just 19 when she was cast as prince says leia and said she had no idea how much her life was going to change and this as the daughter of two '50s legend. her dad is eddie fisher and mom is debbie reynolds. she was the jennifer aniston to the brajelina.
and elizabeth taylor. and carrie fisher is the product of that union. she had one daughter, 24-year-old billy lord with super agent brian lord and they had a serious relationship for many years. and not only leaves her imprint for many but also an incredible writer of memoirs, fiction books and a screenwriter. >> melissa, she had some well-documented problems over the years with, i believe, drug and alcohol abuse. >> and she also had a bipolar disorder and she was a very strong advocate on the side of being open about the fact if you had challenges with mental health in minding help. she was open about her own struggles over time. she wrote postcards about her life and about her struggles along the way and for a lot of people she was an iconic person with a lot of flaws who sort of wore those and even celebrated them at times, was very funny
about it. what i love about her, too, people don't know, she was a very talented script doctor. when they were making a movie and it wasn't coming out very well and they had already invested so much money and actors on the hook and the director and everything, they would call her to make it funny or make it better. she had that kind of talent. it had nothing to do with her comedy or voice. it had to do with her being so talented, she could make a product better. i have so much respect for that. >> there's now an all-clear at trump tower. we'll still send the reporter over to the trump tower and get back with whatever the latest news is. they are calling it an all-clear right now. >> it's kind of interesting, they said there was a suspicious package going to another network, that's why it was evacuated and now they are starting to reveal they had an evacuation plan in order and there are a lot of challenges to being in new york city and being president-elect of the united
states. >> carrie fisher, the "star wars" brand, massive, where does it go from here? >> i think they have a lot of places to go from here and the latest edition of the "star wars" brand continues to surge. you know, evidently, the reports are now she never regained consciousness from that plane when the word was yesterday she seems to be coming out of it and to be okay. >> you know, it's interesting, we are all generation xs over here. and george michael passed away at 53. to me and so many people watching, this is such a personal loss in ways that i think older celebrities aren't because she was only 60 and george michael was 53. these are people that we grew up
with. but to me this was a loss i felt as somebody who grew up with them. star wars came out in 1977. and for generations, not just for me but for our kids -- >> that's a really good point. and i know, melissa, you can attest to this, my daughters are really "star wars" fans and they loved "the force awakens" and carrie fisher was a part of that film. so we will see that role tmpb continue, which is great news. back to george michael, did have a chance to meet and talk with george michael. >> so lucky. >> an incredible con ver sags nalist. and in 1984, they were talking
about music of the day. >> take a listen. i don't mean to cut you off. this is a bound bite of george michael and elton john. do we have that? do you guys have that? all right. take a listen. ♪ ♪ don't let the sound go down on me ♪ ♪ although i've searched myself it's someone else i see ♪ >> that's what we were talking about, what an iconic hero. he kept saying over and over again he couldn't destroy his own career. he resented his fame and said i don't know what it is about my career, no matter what i do, it's like the duck in the bathtub, it keeps popping up again. he did wrestle with his fame his entire life. >> almost became a semirecluse. and also, daily mail was reporting that he had a real problem with his weight, he gained a lot of weight over the last year or so and it was
bothering him immensely. >> it's interesting, when you look at the two, the artistry comes with so much baggage. maybe there's a connection to that. and part of it was, when he picked up a microphone, he had a beautiful sound. >> he was also discounted as an artist because wham was considered a boy band. the british press is absolutely brutal and they were relentless and some accounts were everything pushing 300 pounds and he had to go out decade after decade and i was listening to things in particular, "listen without prejudice," volume 1, and you listen to "father figure," which was supposed to be a dance track and they ended up layering the vocals and it's so beautiful. as i was listening to not only
the words, he produced it, wrote the music and sang it so emotionally, i was saying, adele is so deeply influenced by george michael, you almost listen to these contemporary singers and it would be impossible for them to have these multi-layered -- >> you think about why he may have been that way and then the great debate, freedom by wham let me know. he also was coming to terms with the fact that he was gay and he became a recluse because he was a boy band that girls were in love with and if people found out that he was actually gay, it could have been blown up. >> i really want to get this in.
this is a fantastic "carpool karaoke". >> because you're a joke, george. it's embarrassing. comic relief is about helping people like you. >> let's listen to music. ♪ baby i'm you're man ♪ if you're going to do it, do it right ♪ >> aww. i love it. >> george michael's music will live on. an amazing man and talent. he will never be forgotten. neither will carrie fisher. we'll be right back. ♪
all right. very good. we have some audio issues. if you're fluent in japanese, you can understand exactly what president obama was saying as he and shinzo abe speak together at the "uss arizona" memorial there in hawaii at the pearl harbor memorial. the president is speaking right now. as soon as we resolve that audio issue, we will bring it to you. now, before the election, president obama and president-elect trump could not find many nice words to say about one another. >> he doesn't have the temperament, the knowledge, he doesn't seem to have the interest in acquiring the knowledge. or the basic honesty that a
president needs to have. >> we're going to have big problems. if you think orlando was the end of it with this weak attitude and this pathetic president that we have, it wasn't, folks. it wasn't. >> you don't see him hanging out with working people. unless they are cleaning his room. or mowing the fairways on his golf cart. >> he has been a disaster as president. he will go down as one of the worst presidents in the history of our country. >> well, they seemed to have mended fences until 44 threw a little bit of shade over 45 over the weekend in an interview. mr. obama said he would have defeated mr. trump if he were to run for a third term. >> i am
and japan chose friendship and chose peace. over the decades, our alliances made both of our nations successful. it has helped underright an international order that has prevented another world war and has lifted more than a billion people out of extreme poverty. today, the alliance between the u.s. and japan bound not only by shared interests but routed in common values stands as the cornerstone of peace and
stability in the asia-pacific and a force for progress around the globe. our alliance has never been stronger, in good times and bad, we are there for each other. recall five years ago when a wall of water bore down on japan and reactors in fukashima melted. america's men and women were there in uniform to help our japanese friends. across the globe, the united states and japan worked shoulder to shoulder to strengthen the security of the asia pacific and the world turning back piracy, combatting disease slowing the spread of nuclear weapons, keeping the peace in war-torn areas. earlier this year, near pearl harbor, japan joined with two
dozen nations in the world's largest maritime military exercises. that included our forces from u.s. pacific manned by admiral harry harris. harry was born in ukosko but wouldn't know it from his tennessee twang. thank you, harry, for your outstanding leadership. in this sense, our presence here today, the connection is not just between our governments but between our people, the presence of prime minister abe here today. remind us of what is possible between nations and between
peoples. wars can end. the most bitter of adversaries can become the most strongest of allies. the fruits of peace always outweigh the plunder of war. this is the enduring truth of this hallowed harbor. it is here that we remember that even when hatred burns hottest, even when the tug of tribalism is at its most primal, we must resist the urge to turn inward. we must resist the urge to demonize those who are different. the sacrifice made here, the anguish of war reminds us to
seek the divine spark that is common to all humanity and insists that our japanese friends call otagami with and for each other. that's the lesson of captain william callahan of the missouri. even after an attack on his ship, he ordered that the japanese pilot be laid to rest with military honors, wrapped in a japanese flag sewn by american sailors. it's the lesson in turn of the japanese pilot, who, years later, returned to this harbor, befriended an old marine bugler and asked him to play taps and
lay two roses at this memorial every month, one for america's fallen and one for japan's. it's the lesson our two peoples learn every day in the most ordinary of ways, whether it's americans studying in tokyo, young japanese studying across america, scientists from our two nations together unraveling of mystery and exploring the stars. it's a baseball player like ichiro lighting up a stadium in miami, void by the pride of two people, both american and japanese united in peace and friendship. and as nations as people, we cannot choose the history that we inherit but we can choose
which lessons to draw from. and use those lessons to chart our own futures. mr. abe, i welcome you here in the spirit of friendship, as the people of japan have always welcomed me. i hope that together we send a message to the world that there is more to be won in peace than in war and more rewards than retribution here in this quiet harbor we honor those we've lost and we give thanks for all that our two nations have won together as friends. may god hold the fallen in his everlasting arms, may he watch over our veterans and all who stand guard on our behalf.
may god bless us all. thank you. [ applause ] and that concludes the remarks of president obama and japanese prime minister shinzo abe as they speak together at the "uss arizona" memorial there in hawaii. very interesting comments from both. i was quite relieved that the president didn't take any questions from the press because i feel he would have taken that moment to attack both donald trump and fox news. >> because it's been 90 seconds that he hasn't. >> it's a very solemn moment commemorating 75 years later we're still friends, which is all very nice to hear, breaking news. i think it's lovely. because if you remember, president obama went to hiroshima a while back and people were up in arms about it and i think it's nice that the japanese came to a place where,
let's not forget, they did attack us and start our involvement in world war ii. it's nice to acknowledge all these decades later that, despite our deep and long decades of friendship, that they are based on a horrific period, our nation's history where a lot of people died on both sides. >> and a wariness of china's emergence in that area, where we're responsible for the defense. it's interesting that we thought this was the first prime minister to visit. hawaii is the third. they did low-key visits before and it was his grandfather that was the first leader to visit from japan. >> they also visited the grave of former u.s. senator daniel inoye whose parents were japanese. >> it's also interesting, if you look back, the u.s. and russia were allies at that point in time and now you look at the suspicion among the two groups yet at the same time, the relationship between the u.s. and russia -- between japan and germany now as allies, interesting turn. >> i'm glad we're doing it. i think it's awesome. i lost an uncle in world war ii.
i think this is a great step but i also think it's a heads up, brian is right, to china who yesterday or today moved a carrier into the south china sea which is a bit of a provocative move. >> they made an island and put missiles on it. >> and declared it theirs. >> they want pieces of the indian ocean but it's time for us to pull back and talk. >> china trolling a little bit, exacerbating the issue, trying to create tension between japan and the united states hoping to break up some of that goodwill here. we have much more coming up on "the five" in moments. [vo] quickbooks introduces jeanette and her new mobile wedding business. at first, getting paid was tough... until she got quickbooks. now she sends invoices, sees when they've been viewed and ta-da, paid twice as fast! see how at quickbooks-dot-com.
example. >> we have rather iron clad information from sources in both the arab world and internationally that this was a deliberate push by the united states and, in fact, they helped create the resolution in the first place. >> and what is outrageous is that the united states was actually behind that. it was a very sad day and shameful chapter. >> and now it's not stopped. prime minister benjamin netanyahu is very upset. >> as i told john kerry on thursday, friends don't take friends to the security council. >> well, undeterred by the defeat of the united nations, israel says it will move ahead with thousands of new homes in east jerusalem, finishing up with 6,000 en route to 5,000 and warn the nations against further action directly and indirectly. meanwhile, president-elect donald trump tore into the u.n. and the only way he knows how, when he's on vacation through the twitter machine. the united nations has such great potential and right now
it's a club for people to get together and talk and have a good time. sad. charles krauthammer calls it a disaster and suggests that president-elect trump try to find a way to get rid of it. >> we're paying an organization that spent half its time -- more than half its time and energy and resources and bureaucracy, trying to attack the only jewish state on the planet, a tiny little speck while genocide may have murder, terrorisms going on all over the world. it's an organization that exacerbates tensions and it's good real estate in new york city and trump ought to find a way to turn it into condos. >> well, very direct comments from charles krauthammer, a man who understands what the potential is real estate-wise. there's been 20 condemning resolutions against israel. one against syria, who has killed at least 400,000 people,
and one million said i better leave and one against russia who is carbing up the ukraine and what about this organization? how can they exist this tilted against one small nation? >> it's one of those institutions like so many that we see anywhere in politics that started out with great intentions and good ideas and people can come together and you need a place to go and talk. but then after a while, special interests take over. it just gets mired in corruption and there are negatives to what they are doing. i'm not sure it makes sense to keep going and this is what part of the trump phenomenon is about. this is where you go talk and you have to be able to really look and re-evaluate your commitments to these institutions and you have to have the walkaway ready. you talk about we can't just leave and be a part of this. if the other side doesn't believe that you're willing to stand up and walk away, you're not actually negotiating. does this really make sense? is there a better way to do it?
>> absolutely. what does u.s. senator chuck schumer have in common others? they are democrats and condemned and i could have listed 20 others, the top four, all condemn this resolution from their party's president. what does president obama gain from this isolated action? >> first of all, i think president obama did this after years of frustration with bibi netanyahu and it's something that republicans and democratic organizations condemn. >> we have stood by them and i this. the problem with the u.n. and you pointed this out, united nations has to come to grips with the fact that they turn a complete blind eye to the
savagery and i mean savagery and some of the people who voted for this resolution, venezuela, russia, china, some of the biggest human rights abusers in the world, for them to stand in judgment on the only democracy in the middle east is abhorrent and to be lectured by the likes of venezuela and vladimir putin and the chinese is insane. i would say to the u.n., especially members of the security council -- >> what is president obama doing here? >> this is an opinion show. this is my opinion. i think president obama is no friend to israel. i also think he's settling a score, as you pointed out, that he has with bibi netanyahu. you can remember when netanyahu came and spoke to congress, president obama didn't show up. they have had a contentious relationship. the most important thing that the president should do is whatever he acts upon should be
in the best interests of peace. abstaining isn't in the best interest of peace. it emboldeneds the pro-palestinian crowd and, one more thing, and the other part of this is the numbers, the u.n., we spend $3 billion that we put towards the budget. we spend 8 billion on u.s. initiatives. cut it in half. >> go ahead, kennedy. what do you think about this? i don't see any upside. i think the blow back has surprised the president. >> and it's sad that this is a legacy that these two men leave behind. and abstaining is the same as voting yes. they are permanent members of the security council and the united states absolutely could have voted this resolution down. so what does it mean? what is the u.n. going to do going forward? and somehow i just get really sickened by the moral relativism that we see in the middle east, that bad is really bad but only
for a few people and they put israel at the top of the list but you look at the actors, at the groups and the states surrounding israel who really just want to wipe the place off the map. you look at hamas alone, that is not a charitable organization. i don't care what nancy pelosi says. >> right. and you think this is what they are really thinking about in venezuela. let's figure out what is going on in the middle east and push back on israeli settlements. >> eric, it was a push by egypt. they backed off when donald trump asked them to and came back with this on friday. merry christmas, everybody. meanwhile, shopping should not be a dangerous activity but it certainly was yesterday in malls across america. arrests, evacuations, reports of gunshots, most of them false. was it orchestrated by social media?
lots of people go shopping the day after christmas. the only thing that should be stressful are the long lines of returns. yesterday the scene at dozens of malls were chaotic as violence erupted. take a look at this brawl in take a look at this brawl in texas. >> [ bleep ]. [ bleep ]. [ bleep ]. >> and this one in connecticut. >> oh, my gosh! >> thanks, obama. >> can't blame him for this. >> eric, how are you going to
blame president obama? >> i'm not. some of these are coordinated brawls going on online. >> how do you know that? >> they said there was online social media activity where people said to meet at the mall and there would be a fight. in fox valley, illinois, a thousand teens fought. and i don't -- it's just a function of when you're in a mall, obviously malls are crowded and you hear shots fired and the natural reaction is, this is terror and everyone starts to go. >> and also they are not just running. it's not just people running for their lives in self-preservation. this strikes me as board protesters in places where it's too cold to go outside so they rally their fellow bored friends and go to the mall. >> you have never been to the jersey gardens mall. that's not bored protesters. that's bored people and fighting
over something at burlington coat factory. >> i think it's totally a social media phenomenon. this is where people are gathering and they are showing up and say let's start a brawl, entertainment inside. it's all reasons to never go to the mall again. i only shop online. this video just reinforces it to me. . >> kevin james, you should get an army out there with your helmets on. >> nice segue. >> do you think it's social media? i remember people pulling people's hair over cabbage patch kids. >> where were you? >> in the bronx, my friend. . >> can you imagine doing hair
i do think it's got to be coordinated. that's called twitter, facebook, whatever the kids are doing. >> they are not necessarily trump supporters. >> no rush. one more thing is up next. i accept i'm not the hiker i was. i even accept i have a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat not caused by a heart valve problem. but no matter what path i take, i go for my best. so if there's something better than warfarin, i'll go for that too. eliquis. eliquis reduced the risk of stroke better than warfarin,
plus had less major bleeding than warfarin. eliquis had both. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. i'm still going for my best. and for eliquis. ask your doctor about eliquis.
these kids are beating each other up in malls. >> obama. >> "wall street journal" today has a great article, i like this kind of stuff, talking about the penny. for years i think it's time to get rid of the penny. >> hear, hear. >> did you know a penny costs 1.4 cents -- >> i did. >> and we produce 9 billion pennies. time to get rid of this. also the nickel costs more than it's worth. now, remember, this is the full faith and credit of the united states behind those notes, behind those coins. that's why they're worth anything. when it gets to the point where it's almost 50% more than it's worth, time to get rid of it. also check it out, the bill, a bill only costs 5.5 cents to produce. >> but they also harbor many more germs. >> time to get rid of real money. >> paper pennies. >> not bit coin, maybe other forms. >> apple pay. >> go back to exchange items instead of having money. >> use your smartphone. >> okay. >> use your smartbrain. >> here we go.
some breaking news in the world of sports probably will interest you. one of the most flamboyant coaches in the nfl, rex ryan, fired. one game under .500 with his two seasons with the bills. i'm spriy e surprised by this be gave the team in desperate need of an identity an identity. jacksonville, we have a lot of dedicated viewers, looks like tom coughlin is going to interview for a job when he was the first jacksonville coach ever, but the word is is that he is 71 years old, he's a front-runner to get this job. i'm amazed at the outrage in the sports community that the 71-year-old can be a head of a football team. wait a second, the president of the united states is 70 years old. no one says he's too old. bernie sanders is 100 years old. >> bernie is going to be 80 years old when he takes the oath of office in four years. >> i think 70 is the new 20. >> more football coaches have heart attacked than presidents. >> got a couple super bowls to his credit. let me, rex ryan, you think a
15-7 15 1 15-17 record they should have kept him? >> they need to get people up there -- >> a participation trophy as coach? >> buffalo has not had much success. he steadied the ship. i believe he should get another shot. the people of jacksonville love him, he has a house there. you should go out and hire him. >> okay. very good. will he get hired again, though, rex ryan? >> rex ryan, no, as a broadcaster, he'll almost be as famous as you. >> there you go. you're up. >> it's difficult this time of year for people who lost loved ones. we lost our dad a year ago. our dad gave us the gift of running. the most beautiful place he took me to run as a kid is a state park in portland. i went on a long, beautiful trail run. look at those giant old trees. moss covered. the sun was gleaming through, bouncing on one of the fallen logs. running up a hill. it's a metaphor for grief.
you find your way through and in the end, you have realized how much love changes your life and the depth of it. >> can i also point out that running in the state parks is phenomenal? state park system is absolutely amazing in the united states. we're fortunate to have that. great, great way to take advantage of that. who's up next? >> i'm going to try to follow that which won't be easy, my family vacation to florida. christmas with these gratuitous pictures of my children. playing chess. my little guy got one up on the big guy. here's baby jemma looking at the sun over the ocean. santa stopped in for a break before he delivered all the gifts. there's my daughter. she got this huge kitchen from my mother-in-law. we live in new york city. i don't know how it's going to fit in our apartment. never mind, she looks lovely in front of it. there she is cracking up at her cousin's -- >> keep it at grandma's house. >> i think that's a great idea, let's leave it at grandma's house. there she is laughing hysterically at her cousin.
look at the beautiful christmas day. we loved it. we love you, florida. marcus and ann, we love you, too. very fun. a great holiday. >> in the spirit of world war ii, we were discussing that with shinzo abe and the president, taylor swift played santa claus for a 96-year-old world war ii. the guy is apparently a huge taylor swift fan. he thinks this is the way to connect with his grandchildren. he's been to a couple of her concerts, two more than i've ever been to. he said i just enjoy going to see them and her. i would as soon go see her right now with anybody. i love this guy. taylor swift shows up at this guy's house and surprised him. watch this. amazing. ♪ shake it off, shake it off >> moves pretty well. >> yeah. >> wow, that's him dancing right there. >> that's actually him playing guitar. >> how great is that? i love this guy. taylor swift, you're awesome for doing that. >> all right. set your dvrs so youan episode "
that's it for us. happy hanukkah, everyone, all our jewish friends. day four. night four. "special report" next. two leaders share a moment of silence where 75 years ago destruction rained down from the sky. this is "special report." good evening, and welcome to washington. i'm doug mckelway in for bret baier. president obama just wrapped up remarks following an historic meeting with japanese prime minister at pearl harbor, 75 years after the japanese attack that brought america into world war ii. followed mr. obama's trip to hiroshima in may. a moment of silence in an all white room, 2,400 names of the fallen reside on the wall. correspondent kevin corke is on the ground at pearl
