3:02 am
russia. eric bolling, kimberly guilfoyle. >> we want to know what everyone is thinking about their new years resolutions. >> all people cooler than us. >> absolutely. >> we're going to be piling on the bacon as we talk about -- >> bacon! >> come on. >> 2016 and you improve in 2017. do it now while you can. >> have you figured out your new year's resolutions yet? >> no. >> send us yours. >> help us out. we haven't decided yet. >> we have news to cover. >> fox news alert. russia retaliating after being slammed with new sanctions for alleged election hacking. >> putin alleging sanctions of his own and swift revenge. >> let's get to garrett tenney live in washington with the breaking details. good morning, garrett. >> good morning. russia promised they o would retaliate against sanctions.
3:03 am
it appears they've done just that. reuters news agency is reporting that russia announced plans to expel 35 u.s. diplomats and ban u.s. diplomatic staff from using two buildings in moscow. that comes in response to a long list of sanctions the white house announced yesterday, including plans to shut down two compounds in maryland in new york that have been used by russian personnel for intelligence purposes and declaring 35 russian intelligence operatives persona non grata and give them 72 hours to leave the country. with that announcement, the president says the u.s. may take additional steps against moscow as well. we will continue to take a rah right of actions at a time and place of our choosing some of which will not be public loy-sized. they widely mocked it. saying president obama expels 35 diplomats in cold war deja vu as
3:04 am
everybody, including american people will be glad to see the last of this hapless administration. lame duck. as for the incoming president-elect, donald trump who has long questioned the intelligence community's findings of russian interference surrounding the election said in a statement it's time for our country to move on to bigger and better things. nevertheless, in the interest of our country and its great people, i will meet with leaders of the intelligence community next week in order to be updated on the facts of this situation. of course, the big question with the sanctions is what will president-elect trump decide to do? last night incoming white house chief of staff reince priebus said they will wait until they've met with the intelligence communities and gotten that information before making a decision on how they will go forward. back to you. >> thanks, garrett. >> serious intellectual thinkers are rolling over in their graves when they see this tweet, lame duck. modern diplomacy.
3:05 am
>> it's important to clarify, yes, no one wants or believes there should be foreign interference in elections. let's be clear up front, the election itself was not hacked. the vote count was not hacked. >> according to who? >> according to this administration. >> even president obama said that. >> not a single vote was affected by what russia did in the actual implementation. >> were they trying to tamper with our process? >> yes. >> that's a big question. why are they coming out with three weeks left in his presidency? here's what the white house deputy press secretary said yesterday? >> the president is leaving the white house, he's the president from now until then. the president-elect, once he assumes office on january 20th will be in a position to make decisions. what russia has been engaged in over the last few months and years is outside the norms of diplomatic behaviors and the president is sending a message to tell them to cut it out. that's why he ordered aggressive action. sniemts a couple things. cut it out? i mean, that doesn't sound --
3:06 am
hey vlad cut it out. eric schultz, good person, know him. worked with him a lot at the white house. i think what he's trying to say is yes, they're pushing back now. trying to get aggressive. when we're talking about timing, this hacking situation started some 18 months ago, summer of 2015. why didn't they do anything sooner if this was an imperative part of it? they didn't want to interfere in the election, didn't want to pour gasoline on the fire. if this was going on and it was so awful, so horrible, we need to teach vladimir putin a lesson, why did we wait until the final three weeks? when you put this together with the israel resolution story, it looks like a president in the last three weeks is not taking bold action, but is trying to salvage a legacy here. >> and doing the opposite instead. he's looking political and not salvaging a legacy. just doubling down on a legacy. kellyanne conway articulates
3:07 am
these kind of things and was on talking about why would this be happening? does this have anything to do with politics? she was on hannity last night and this is what she said. >> i was disappointed to read in the piece this evening about the allegation or the supposition that perhaps one reason the sanctions are taking place is to quote box in president-elect trump forcing him to take a position or otherwise once he takes office. i hope this isn't motivated by politics even a little bit. i would say it's remarkable to me that we're talking about sanctions against russia just days after i would call sanctions against israel. so i think in the last couple of days you see this flurry of activity by a tough president obama as he exits the office and i guess semi-colons worth of his legacy. at the same time, the new president will have an opportunity to re-examine the relation shifs geo politically.
3:08 am
>> there are two big questions here. why now anditical was the move? you brought this up ed when the resolution came forward at the u.n. last week. you said would this have happened if hillary clinton was the incoming president? i wonder the same thing. >> because you're leaving a mess for donald trump and you're exacerbating some of the mess as well. by taking on an ally like israel. >> also attempting to delegitimize. >> the headline in "the new york times." i also did label it properly as the failing new york times. >> i was wondering. i added that on top. over election hacking, there was no election hacking. when you try to -- >> there was hacking of e-mails. >> the result itself was not hacked. we should be very clear about that. >> he was way ahead of the curve on russia. >> it was the other guy.
3:09 am
watch. >> russia indicated is a geo political foe. >> excuse me. it's a geo political foe. i said in the same paragraph, i said iran is the greatest national security threat we face. >> in the 1980s or now, calling to ask for their foreign policy bank. the cold war has been over for 20 years. >> really strong moment for mitt romney. >> you look back on that and here you have president obama trying to get tough on russia and you have to wonder with these sanctions, we've been here before, haven't we? >> sure. >> a few years ago with the crimea and all of that. what did that do? >> the foreign policy back. you underestimated just how big of a deal russia and vladimir putin turned out to be. at the time in that debate, isn't it also interesting that president obama appeared to be, got to give vlad a chance here. we can work together. now you flip it around, donald trump is too close to vlad and putin is a bad guy. wait in 2012 in that debate, you
3:10 am
said we were going to be friends. >> exactly right. they cross red lines and support the assad regime. we do nothing. now for the election violation, we expel spies and close down two compounds. it's a slap on the wrist diplomatically. we would have done it in the cold war. happened all the time. this is a big decisive action? no, it's not. >> it's like fixing a broken arm with a band-aid. what does that do at the end of the day? why not hit on the inner circle? where does he get hit the hardest? is that the question? >> absolutely. the compounds we're going after, they're mysterious. one in maryland outside of d.c. you can see it there. it's about an hour and a half outside of d.c. on the eastern shore of maryland. beautiful area. been there many times. never been to that compound, i can assure you. >> apparent live, they've got great parties there. they've served them vodka. >> we go there because we want to be secret and -- what is
3:11 am
happening? >> when do we call things compounds versus houses? >> i don't know. >> i'm just saying. >> how long has that house been there filled with russia? >> late '60s, early '70s. >> why are we doing something about this now? what impact will that have on our relationship with russia? >> nothing. >> negligent lijable. >> they're going to do the same thing to us. kick out spies under diplomatic cover. it's a hit tat. we're with russia still running the table. >> be interesting to go in that compound now. see how they left it. all the bugs that were left behind. >> like a summer rental where at the end, there's a like -- >> it's become a summer rental. up for rent. >> it's a beautiful area. they'll flip it around now. help cut the deficit a little. let's get other headlines. toss over to jillian. good to see you.
3:12 am
>> good to see you. you should get that puppy up on air bnb. >> i think you're right. here are headlines for you. this is a fox news alert. a texas police officer shot during a routine traffic stop. shots ringing out across a parking lot as officer chris bum pus tried to arrest a man outside ft. worth. the officer and the suspect were hurt and rushed to the hospital. the officer is out of surgery thankfully and in stable condition. the navy veteran was recently named rookie of the year. good for him. developing now, unprecedented security in places as the world prepares to welcome in 2017. isis warning about brand new attacks. a live look at times square where you can see trucks are blocking the streets filled with sand filled trucks. 7,000 officers will patrol the crowds and helicopters will keep watch from overhead.

3:16 am
tension growing between the u.s. and russia. already at an all-time high following president obama's decision to impose sanctions on that country. some members of the president's own party speaking out, though. saying the sanctions should be tougher. congressman adam schiff saying we must evaluate the success of our response using one critical metric. has it dissuaded russia from bad conduct. i believe other punitive measures will need to be undertaken from a democrat. texas congressman louie gohmert is here. >> good morning. >> great to be with you. >> a big news day. first off the top, the reaction
3:17 am
to president obama's actions yesterday. >> if you're going to punish somebody, what he did is not all that much of a punishment. i was hosting for sean hannity yesterday. mike from ohio called in and said, this is really not a punishment because these 35 russian expelled diplomats just choose the sanctuary city they want to go there. you don't have to leave, go to a sanctuary city and go there. chicago, san francisco. it's not so bad. it's not really punishment. >> why now? so many violations, so many things russia has done over the last -- under this administration. now this and this action. >> we sell these kind of actions when we were each in middle school. when somebody got their feelings hurt, what did they do? they tried to slap back. if you look at what this president has done, 2012, i know you remember, you reported on it ed. but the president said, tell
3:18 am
vladimir, i have a lot more flexibility. when he was willing to sell out the country and vladimir didn't take him up on his offer, then it was a slap back just like in middle school. but if you look at what the president is doing at the same time with immigrants, i immediately thought of batman begins the one with liam neeson. what do you do if you want to destroy the big city? first they let the criminals go. what's the president doing? he's letting as many criminals go as he can. then you bring in outsiders to destroy what's left. this president, he's been told by isis, we're going to get terrorists in with the refugees and he says, great. let's bring them on. we'll have them all here for trump. keep sending them. >> is he the superhero? >> i see trump as the guy that comes sweeping in with the medicine that saves the city. >> how does he do that, though?
3:19 am
when you're dealing with vladim vladimir putin and russia, every president can set the reset button. trump will have that opportunity. what does he do to get it right? >> the thing that trump has going for him, as a student who majored in history, i told donald trump this in september, we were talking privately. when you look at the presidents that did best with foreign policy, they were presidents perceived as being a little bit crazy. teddy roosevelt, ronald reagan. remember when reagan was portrayed as where is the red button, i'm ready to launch missiles. he said they say i'm crazy. that's why you will be great for foreign relations. >> he came to talk about this sharp increase of refugees coming into this country. how do you make sure they're vetted and they don't become -- they're not terrorists. >> you take the testimony of comey and those that have
3:20 am
testified before our committee on this issue. they have said yes, they will vet them, but they have absolutely no information with which to vet them. there is no way to know. comey said when they came from iraq, we had all of iraq's governmental records we could check against. from syria and the other places, we've got nothing, we have zero. we have nothing to check their records. >> so the president should be in the position of a doctor. first do no harm and this president is doing harm as he goes out. it's a mess. >> congressman louie gohmert. thanks for coming in. >> it's a pleasure. thank you. hollywood a-lister boycotting president-elect trump's inauguration based on so-called principles. where were those principles when they performed for dictators and others around the world? in the good old days, you used to have to wine and dine them to win a lady's heart. not only is chivalry dead, but

3:24 am
the parole hearing for a notorious man son cult killer has been pushed back. the court says it needs time to investigate brand new information that reportedly involves allegations patricia kren winkle was abused by charles manson or someone else. she was found guilty of helping manson murder seven people nearly five decades ago. and drexel university is defending its professor who tweeted "all i want for christmas is white genocide." in a statement, the school supports the rights of its faculty members to freely express their opinions calling the professor's tweet protected speech. they protect that, but not other forms i guess. many celebrities have proudly announced they want nothing to do with president-elect trump's swearing in celebrations. something he says he doesn't care about. >> in a recent tweet trump said the so-called a-list celebrities
3:25 am
want has -- look what they did for hillary. >> performed for thugs, dictators with literal outrage. author of con job and editor of black chick.com crystal wright. crystal, good morning to you. >> good morning, abby. >> good morning, ed sneemt let's show you a list of celebrities who have declined to perform at the inauguration, elton john, gene simmons, andrea bocelli, the list goes on. president-elect trump says i could careless about this. >> liberal hollywood was in the tank for hillary clinton. remember? you had lena dunham. the list goes on and on. they say we're not going to perform for trump. not going to put country first. that's what liberal hollywood stars do. as you pointed out in the tease before we started talking, a lot of celebrities don't have any moral high ground or ethics when it comes to making money and performing for libyan dictator
3:26 am
kadaffi, beyonce, usher, they were happy to perform for him. >> we have that list. >> they performed beyonce, usher, mariah carey, nelly furtado and 50 cent. they haven't been involved in this trump deal but they did perform for him. nicki minaj and mariah carey. what message do you take from that? they take the money from dictators. but people are outraged about the possibility of performing for a republican president. >> the message here is that celebrities like beyonce and usher are utter hypocrites. they have no moral high ground and no ethics. nothing says that you hate america and your country more than refusing to perform for the next. right? what happened to the peaceful transition of power that hillary clinton lauded? remember that? she kept ribbing donald trump.
3:27 am
speaking of beyonce who loves to perform for gadhafi. she performed for president obama, one of the inaugurals. >> second one. >> trump is a white republican. so of course, oh, no, you can't perform for him. we all know, guys if the roles were reversed, the same liberal celebrities would be calling their peers racist for not performing if it was obama and it was happening. if celebrities were daring to boycott the first black president. oh, you guys are a bunch of racist. it's okay to boycott the white guy coming in. >> so many talented individuals to get up on the stage and perform, that's what it's all about. that's what his campaign was about from day one. >> i nominate abby huntsman. i don't know if you've heard her voice. we might get her by the end of the show to do a -- this is a new year surprise. i'm not joking. >> i'm ready, abby. i want to hear it. >> crystal, i don't think it's

going to happen. >> good to see you. have a good new year. >> one of the members of kiss will join us on the program. we'll ask him about this as well. >> the ultimate disrespect for our nation's cops. this painting depicting police officers as pigs is hanging inside our nation's capitol. who approved that? it's not an official national holiday. but it should be. it's national bacon day. up next, a special "fox and friends" bacon taste test. it might be why pete is not here now. >> look at janice. that's hilarious. happy birthday to lebron james. he's 32 years old. happy birthday lebron. what's the best way to get

of the comments. >> i think it's important to note that john podesta had his e-mail phished. meaning their own security blocks or protocol did not preclude him from actually giving up his own password -- >> sure, but his e-mail was stolen. regardless of how it was done, his e-mails were stolen. we'll get to the substance of the e-mail. but they were taken. >> they were. but this is the thing. no one is denying that they're true. no one is saying that anything wafs released is untrue. you have to consider too, ed, that there are other sources that collude with the fact that there was a lot of corruption going on within the democratic party. there was a james o'keefe tapes, of course. there was quid pro quo -- why can none of us say that. that fox uncovered. there was a lot of instances that said there's a lot of
3:47 am
corruption going on and the mainstream media was doing nothing to expose it. >> richard, you can respond. >> i've heard, gina and other trump surrogates say that podesta had this coming. that would be like richard nixon saying oh, this watergate break-in was nonsense because if they had better security, my goons would never have gotten the materials from the watergate. that's what we're hearing. number one. imagine, ed, if criminals, russian criminals had gone into trump towers and stolen donald trump's tax returns for the past 20 years and made them public. would congressman franks say, hey, they were just doing what the press should have been doing. what are they saying the press should have been stealing? it's stealing. is that what they're saying, the press should be stealing information and putting it out there willy-nilly? i don't think so. >> i'm going to come back to richard on the substance of the
3:48 am
e-mails so we can get that in as well. there's a fair question. if the russians had stolen the tax returns, you'd be okay with them being put out there? >> well, some of trump -- let's not forget that some of his tax returns were stolen. >> a couple pages. >> i don't think that's the point. no one is saying okay that the russians meddle in any way. what we are saying and it's important to note and i think there is a story here, is that the mainstream media did no investigation. where is the evidence, ed, that any investigation was done into the corruption of the democrats? if they were that desperate, we have to ask ourselves logically, if they were that desperate to win the election, willing to go to that kind of corruption, then why don't we believe that they're desperate right now and willing to do just about anything to undermine the trump administration? >> i've pressed gina before. richard, on the substance of the e-mails, as gina pointed out, one example with the clinton
3:49 am
foundation, millions of dollars that went to a moroccan king. we didn't know about a lot of that until we saw the e-mails. the substance of the e-mails were not pretty for the clinton team. >> right. what you're saying, ed, is that stealing somebody else's private information, you know, the ends justify the means, right? you know, i actually heard very little on this and other networks about what we call a classic textbook pay for play, which is donald trump giving money to the attorney general of florida so that she could shut down an investigation of trump university. all this stuff about morocco, incidentally, there was zero, zero that came out from wikileaks or anything else that tied any official actions by hillary clinton to anything done by the foundation. she was disassociated from the foundation. we can relitigate it. what congressman franks is saying, the media should be stealing information from whoever they want and putting it out there.
3:50 am
i'm suggesting to you and each gina would agree that that's wrong. if it was trump, if it was clinton or anybody else, i don't think fox wants to have dirty hands, nor does anybody else. everybody feels oh, it's fine. whatever, it's out there. let's just go with it. >> ten seconds for you. >> i think we expect our enemies to do things to sabotage our system. what i don't think we expect is for that party, the democrat party, to be so corrupt and for the media to collude with them and not investigate the corruption. >> you both got your points in there. happy new year to both of you. >> happy new year to you. >> still ahead, the ultimate disrespect, a painting depicting police officers as pigs, literally as biggs, hanging inside our nation's capitol. who approved that. that's next. we're counting down the top political sound bites of 2016. who could forget this one? >> you could put half of trump supporters into what i call the
3:51 am
basket of deplorables. >> okay. . . . . tall married small? with sleep number, there's an adjustment for that. make it firm. make it soft. adjusts to any duo. does your bed do that? come into a sleep number store where the c2 mattress is now $699.99. it's a no brainer.

as the new year comes closer and closer, it's time to rewind politically. after a contentious election season, we're about to take a stroll down memory lane.
3:54 am
who better to break that down for us than lee carter. who joins me now with a look back. you've done an outstanding job throughout debates, everything that's gone on, conventions, covering the top political moments. pick some out for us. some key moments that moved the needle in 2016. we'll play four of them. you could play 50. first one is talking about self-funding in a political ad. take a look. >> the establishment, the media, the special interests, the lobbyists, the donors, they are all against me. i'm self-funding campaign. i don't owe anybody anything. i only owe it to the american people to do a great job. >> so the interesting pick, not one that would have jumped off the screen to me, initially, why that one? >> the reason is he had a theme throughout the campaign that he was not the establishment, that he was different, that he was on the side of the people, and that
3:55 am
whole message turned in to drain the swamp and i think what's so important about this message is this wasn't about donald trump the man. this was about a movement against the establishment and by setting it up, it was a really, really smart strategy and it continued throughout the campaign and it's one of the reasons -- >> interesting. straight to the cam remark straight to the people, became the tag line of drain the swamp. but the end was i'm not part of the machine. the next one we're very familiar with. let's go to the clip. >> you could put half of trump supporters into what i call the basket of deplorables. >> all right. deplorables who are irredeemable. in some ways the election was litigated on that. >> this was an absolute unfortunate moment for hillary clinton. this is one of the moments that things really shifted in donald trump's favor. it's one thing to criticize your opponent which she did throughout the campaign, her whole strategy was donald trump was dangerous but this was criticizing the supporters and she said i was going to be a
3:56 am
supporter for all americans. she said that we're stronger together, and you know what, this showed that that wasn't authentic, it wasn't true and she was really only on the side of her supporters. >> she didn't misspeak. this is part of a speech. >> this is part of a speech and this is something that she obviously felt and really it emboldened trump supporters. people wore it as a badge of honor to say i'm a deplorable. it really back fired and this is one of the biggest gifts that hillary clinton gave to donald trump in the election. >> caught on tape. donald trump had this to say at a debate and you are saying it's the top moments. >> you are saying you are not -- >> i will tell you at the time. i'll keep you in suspense. >> i will keep you in suspense about the election outcome. >> he was not -- he was a nontraditional candidate with unexpected answers. with what was so fascinating for this, he was criticized for this moment. people said over and over again, this isn't right, this isn't fair and look at the results at the end of the day. he wasn't the one that was
3:57 am
leaving us in suspense. >> that's exactly right. the irony, sometimes it can't be written. the fourth and final one for today is a moment that, well, we all remember. just a moext. take a listen. >> name a foreign leader that you respect. >> i guess i'm having an aleppo moment in the former president of mexico. >> i'm giving you the whole world. anybody in the world you like. anybody. pick any leader. >> the former president of mexico. >> which one? >> i'm having a brain -- >> well, name anybody. >> he had that brain moment. he also had the aleppo moment. >> it was really unfortunate for gary johnson. up until that point, we were talking about how much he was going to hurt the candidates. i think at this point we just realized he wasn't going to be a real threat to either candidate. >> you are right. the libertarian candidate had a chance in this election cycle and he gave it away. bristol pay -- palin causing

4:02 am
>> we're going to ask them what their new year's resolutions are going to be. we'll ask you what yours are. send them in. >> we'll ask gene simmons is. >> making it's working out more to get pecs like pete. >> i'm never going to mention the weight room ever again. >> yeah, i love that music. >> i was 17. >> yeah, yeah, yeah. >> we have a lot of news. you are seeing president obama going out with like this furious burst of activity. first going after israel at the u.n. now going after vladimir putin and russia with the sanctions, but immediately, just like the israel situation, actually, you don't have republicans saying these seem kind of weak, you actually have top democrats on capitol hill saying why are you attacking this critical ally? others are saying, these are weak. we're throwing out diplomats. if you really believe that
4:03 am
russia did these horrible things, then why are we not going after them harder? >> here's what they have done yesterday. u.s. actions against russia. so you can better understand this. nine russian entities and people sanctioned. 35 russian diplomats were expelled from the u.s. two russian compounds closed in the u.s. and possible covert cyber actions. that breaks it all down. the big question is what impact is that ultimately going to have. >> in the failing "new york times," as it's properly labeled there. >> it's not written in there. >> it's going to be renamed. the first cia asked about it says it's a slap on the wrist at best. it's not going to affect the way russia operates in this country. they are going to spell 35 of ours and close two facilities in russia. so this is nothing going to impact how they actually operate. that's important. if you are going to be punitive, make it work, make it hurt. in this case, it doesn't at all. it's purely symbolic and after
4:04 am
all the things that russia has gotten away with, crimea, what's going on with assad. >> the timing is interesting. he said what is the purpose of this, why three weeks before president obama is out of office and how political was this move. >> the ahacking started 18 monthsing a. >> the white house has been saying look we didn't want to further impact the election this past sner to -- summer to start going after russia, pouring gasoline on the fire. some critic obviously not buying that. eric schultz spokesman for the white house explaining their side. >> he's leaving office in three weeks, he's the president from now until then. president-elect once he assumes office on january 20th will be in a position to make these sort of decisions. our bottom line is what russia has been engaging in the last couple years is unacceptable. it's outside the norms of diplomatic behavior. >> when you tell vladimir putin to cut it out, that's what he
4:05 am
does. >> you ever do that on with your sisters. >> that doesn't work. kellyanne conway often speaking out and laying out these things in a way that's helpful to understand from their perspective. >> another side of the story. >> this is all being handed to the next administration coming in, to president-elect trump. [ voices overlapping ] >> kellyanne conway says she shoeps this is not just about politics. >> i'm really disappointed to read in david sanger's "new york times" piece this morning the allegation or supposition that perhaps one reason that these sanctions are taking place is to, quote, box in president-elect trump forcing him to take a position or otherwise when he take office. i hope this isn't motivated by politics even a little bit. it's just remarkable to me that we're talking about sanctions against russia just days after i would call sanctions against israel. in the last couple of days, you
4:06 am
see a flurry of activity by a tough president obama as he exits office and i guess is burnishing his last couple of moments, semi cold lons of his legacy. the new president will have an opportunity to reexamine -- >> there she got her shot in, a semicolon of a legacy. let's not forget in 2012 when mitt romney said this is our biggest geopolitical foe and barack obama says the 80s called and they want their foreign policy back. he was mocked. he was right four years ago. president obama said maybe let's be friends with vladimir putin. remember the other moment in that campaign, i'll have more flexibility to work with putin. >> we weren't supposed to hear that part. >> it was a hot mike. >> now donald trump is the guy that they are accusing of, oh, he's just too close to putin.
4:07 am
>> exactly. we're being told too that it was their influence that turned this entire election. let's be clear, no one wants any foreign entity meddling into our election. that's not good. this was not an election hacking. but the mainstream media is still trying to tell us -- >> hacking of emails. >> there was hacking but nothing with votes and vote counting on election day. >> that's what's so interesting because president obama was the one who said it wasn't hacking that impacted the election. he said that. do we have that sound? >> i don't know if we have that. if we do, we'll play it. we have headlines from different newspapers today still using the phrase election hacking. look at that. the failing "new york times" says obama strikes back at russia for election hacking. usa today, election hacking. abc news, election hacking. it's hacking related to, you know -- [ voices overlapping ]
4:08 am
>> it just says "the new york times." i don't know. the paper boy didn't bring it in at the hotel. [ voices overlapping ] >> we have the sound now of president obama saying just a few weeks ago that it wasn't hacking that impacted this election. let's play that. >> i can assure the public that there was not the kind of tampering with the voting process that was a concern and will continue to be of concern going forward. that the votes that were cast were counted. they were counted appropriately. we have not seen evidence of machines being tampered with. so that assurance i can provide. >> you can see how tortured his answer kind of was -- well, he was admitting there this at the end of the day didn't impact the actual election results. >> isn't that what he said
4:09 am
yesterday? the reason why they put forward these sanctions. >> well, that they were trying to interfere. >> meddling. >> meddling, but at the end of the day, president obama himself at that news conference acknowledged it didn't change the election results and the fox poll, i've got the numbers, the effect of russia's attempts to influence presidential election using these cyber attacks, no real effect, 59%, helped trump, 32%. in the days ahead, when he take office, donald trump will have to deal with this. he's going to have an early decision. that's what kellyanne conway is talking about. there's a trap by the obama administration. the new president has to decide do i let these sanctions go forward and reverse them. if he reverses them, the democrats are saying you are being nice to vladimir putin. it's going to be a test on him. >> it's not about slaps on the wrists anymore. this is a new opportunity to engage differently with russia. you don't want these roadblocks being thrown up in the last
4:10 am
three weeks. >> a lot of people are saying this is what this is. land mines to leave for president-elect donald trump. we've got to get some other headlines and gillian turner is here this morning. >> i'm going to be reporting on what you guys say off mike all morning. be careful. >> folks at home want to know. i got the info. we're going to turn to some headlines now. fox news alert, texas police officer shot during a traffic stop was hit by his partner's bullet it turns out. officer chris bumpus shot in the stomach as he tried to arrest a man with an outstanding warrant just outside ft. worth. it's partner opening fire on the suspect as he attacked bumpus, both were found wounded. he's now out of surgery thankfully and in stable condition. as you know, he's a navy veteran who was just named rookie of the year by his department. so congratulations on that. we hope he gets better soon. unprecedented security now in the works for times square on
4:11 am
new year's eve as isis warns of new attacks. this is a live look at times square where you can see sand-filled trucks will be blocking the streets to protect the nearly 2 million folks planning to ring in the new year there. 7,000 police officers will patrol the streets as helicopters keep watch from overhead. right now there aren't any credible threats against times square in particular, but police are warning folks about the concern over lone wolf attacks. a manhunt ramping up this hour for an escaped inmate. the police say you'll know if you spot daniel ortiz because he's still wearing his leg shackles. he was taken to the hospital before being taken to jail. this security photo shows him after he slipped out of an exam room and took off. now some celebrity news. outrage by the list of celebrities snubbing the president-elect trump. one famous face says it's time
4:12 am
for the qo, quote, sissees to stop going with the status quo. bristol palin says she's sick how uncool it is to be conservative. either hollywood is that far off. >> there's no sissies as fox news. there's this painting hanging in the u.s. capitol. we've learned about this and it depicts police officers as pigs in a year when 135 officers were killed in the line of duty. 64, by the way, were shot. you can see the painting there. the congressman involved in this, i should say by way of context, they typically are a lot of paintings in the capitol when you walk between office buildings because they do these contests from schools and kids. my district has this really cool piece of hard. a landscape or something. but to throw in the mix and have
4:13 am
somebody say wait a second, this one is offensive, the colors may be nice, but the message is disgusting. why would you put that up in the capitol? we talk a lot about the celebrity deaths, george michael, great legacy, debbie reynolds and all of that it fine to talk and remember. but how much time do we spend on the police officers who try to protect us and were killed? >> not just them but the family members, they have to kiss them good-bye and they are in harms way. we've said this numbers, 135 of cops killed in the line of duty. 64 cops were killed by shooting in the line of duty alone. [ voices overlapping ] >> hopefully, that changes by shining a light on it. icy relations between the obama administration and moscow getting worse, so where does this leave president-elect trump when he takes office? former u.n. ambassador john bolton is going to weigh in

4:16 am
we're back with a fox news alert. tension between the u.s. and russia at an all-time high following president obama's decision to impose sanctions on that country. so what happened to the russian reset? what could this mean for the president-elect? mr. trump weighing in with a statement saying it's time for our country to move on to bigger and better things. nevertheless, in the interests of our country and its great people, i will meet with leaders of the intelligence community next week in order to be updated on the facts of this situation. here to weigh in former u.s. ambassador to the u.n., john bolton. good morning. i wonder first of all, when you have some senior democrats in capitol hill, that building behind you saying these are pretty paltry in terms of sanctions and don't have a lot of teeth, what real impact will
4:17 am
they have? >> i don't think they will have much impact at all and i think president obama searry compromised the signal that he was trying to send by mushing together both the cyber attacks and the harassment of american diplomats in moscow. it's the latter that really explains the png of 35 russian diplomats in this country and closing two compounds which the russians are preparing to reciproca reciprocate. the real issue is getting our arms around what we know about what the russians actually did and this administration has so politicized intelligence over the past several years, its comments during the election period, its comments now, that i think both the senate and house committees that are looking into this and the new trump administration are going to have to consider the actual facts very carefully and decide what they are going to do. >> is the second question, you mentioned the big question, the second question, what of the legacy of one barack obama in terms of russia? first of all, they have that russian reset.
4:18 am
he and secretary clinton. that clearly did not go well. secondly, in the 2012 campaign, it was barack obama who mocked mitt romney for saying russia was our biggest geopolitical foe and now here he is on the way out the door seeming to try desperately to slap vladimir putin. >> well, look, the russians have walked all over the obama administration for eight years. it's really been a pathetic performance. so what this last burst of activity has to do is hard to say. i think it's intended to try and box the trump administration in. i think it will fail. this is simply an executive order. if president trump decides to reverse it, it's easy enough to do. we really need to get past the politics of this, because if even a piece of what is alleged about this russian activity is true, it is utterly unacceptable. it is an attack on our constitutional system. it is not enough to say, and
4:19 am
people should be very careful about this, to say, well, it didn't actually have an impact on the election. the fact that russian efforts were incompetent or insufficient shouldn't make us feel better. if japan had attacked pearl harbor and all of its bombs and torpedoes had missed, no americans killed, no ships sunk, would we have said no harm, no foul. no, it's the effort that they made, if this is accurate should trouble us. not the fact that it failed. >> great point and we have one minute. that leads to the final question which is what then should the incoming president, donald trump, actually do about this? he's been accused to be fair here of being too cozy with vladimir putin. so moving ahead, what must he do to respond to what you just said? >> well, i would extend the question to chinese hacking, north korean hacking, iranian hacking. lots of hacking that the obama administration has failed to respond to across the board. look, we want to try and minimize this and to do that you've got to build up both our
4:20 am
cyber offensively and defensive capabilities and create structures of deternts so it doesn't happen again. how do you do that? in this case, you make the russians feel pain. the white house press spokesman you had at the top of the show saying president obama is sending a signal. that is utterly usele. if you make them feel pain and others feel pain, then the possibility of deterring future conduct like this increases. that's what we need to do. >> great. a lot of noise on this issue. ambassador bolton cutting through that noise as he usually does. we appreciate you being on. happy new year. >> happy new year. >> coming up, they are here illegally but they are legally allowed to drive. up next, the shocking number of illegal immigrants are hitting our highways. all year, he told us which movies to see and to skip. next, kevin mccarthy joins us to reveal the best and worst mov. thank you for dining with us.

4:27 am
picture. >> what about "rival"? >> this is very poll lar rising. number two, arrival. >> and we've heard you geek out on this number one. >> yes. i'm so excited. i've seen this movie nine times. no question the movie is "dead pool." i love it. i think it's a brilliant film. i think it was well-done. very r rated. very raunchy. very violent at times but overall is a well-made movie in regards to story telling. it's a passion project for ryan reynolds. there are so many cool things that went on behind the scenes of this movie. when he did all the scenes with the mask on, he would redo them again to make the eyes move. every joke about x men made me laugh so hard. >> you've seen it nine times? do you ever stop counting or do you keep a count? >> no, i watch it all the time. >> how many movies have you seen this year and what was the worst one you saw?
4:28 am
>> i saw well over 100 movies this year. the worst movie i saw this year and this is just disappointing to me because i loved the first one is zoo lander 2. this movie was so bad. honestly, i want that time back in my life. it was an awful script. there were too many cameos and i love ben stiller but zoolander 1 was great, but 2 was absolutely awful. >> abby's worst movie. >> anything that did not have ryan gossling. >> that's true. >> jenna mccarthey -- >> i'll tweet out my top ten which is at kevin mccarthy tv. i'll put the full top ten on there. >> good to see you, kevin. >> happy new year. >> he is one of the most iconic and successful rockers of all time and he is not slowing down any time soon. the legendary front man of kiss, gene simmons is here live. come on in. >> after eight decades.

4:46 am
we're back with this. an update to a story that we brought you earlier this week regarding fraud in the food stamp program. we reported that back in 2016. $70 million were wasted on food stamp fraud. that was incorrect. the latest information from 2009 to 2011 shows the fraud at 1.3%, which is approximately $853 million for each of those three years and nationally food stamp trafficking is on the decline. so sorry about that mistake. over to you, pete. >> we forgive you. president-elect donald trump plans to use extreme vetting of u.s. bound immigrants but "the washington post" suggesting that's a waste of time. writing this, americans deserve to know that those entering the country have been screened carefully but it will be difficult for mr. trump to fashion an even more musk collar inspection and monitoring regimen without subjecting visitors and immigrants to outlight religious profiling.
4:47 am
here to join us is tim clemente. "the washington post" is saying we can't do more than we're already doing. are they right? >> absolutely not. you can always do more because it's not possible for us to know what we don't know in this regard and you just had a story on 30 seconds ago about fraud in the food stamp system. fraud occurs everywhere. you have identity fraud within the united states. we have the greatest databases that exist anywhere on the planet to track who people are and to identify them and yet beside that fact you also have people that are able to steal your and my identity, pretend they are us, buy cars, get credit cards, steal things. if somebody can steal the identity of you or i easily and do something within this country, how much easier is it for them to be from a third world country where there are literally no databases and take the identity of another person and come to the united states. if i can give you one quick story, i was actually in a cab last week talking to my cab
4:48 am
driver, and this individual had come from pakistan 30 years ago, and it was during the ronald reagan amnesty program years, and he was in a rural village in pakistan. heard about this program. got contacted by an individual that would be able to help him once he got to the united states. he was able to buy a false passport with his real picture on it. came to the united states illegally on a flight on a visa that was obtained during an illegal false name. once he got in the united states, he contacted a man who owned a farm in california. that individual fraudulently wrote a letter for him saying this guy has been a farm worker for the last six months and he used that to get amnesty under the ray gab program and eventually became a citizen. he wanted to be able to send money back to his family back in pakistan. he was able to game the system. >> what's the default? if someone shows up with shady
4:49 am
paperwork or no paperwork, is the default to let them in or give them deference or is it to say until you come up with something that looks legitimate, we're not letting you. >> the default system is these people appear to be legitimate refugees or asylum seekers, less let's find them, a refugee is applying to come to the united states as a refugee. an asylum seeker somebody who is already here or at a port of entry to the united states. they are the same basic program, but we consider them as two different types of entries. so when somebody comes here to the southern border of the united states or seeks through the united nations refugee programs to come to the united states, all they have to say is i'm facing persecution because of my heritage, my nationality, my clan of origin, or my political affiliations or the social group i belong to. those are the actual parameters that we use. so if an individual is fleeing a war torn area of syria and says
4:50 am
i have no possessions but the shirt on my back, i don't have any identification, but i'm from this village, it was destroyed. i have no way to go back there because i would be persecuted, we cannot, we cannot, we cannot in any effective way determine who they really are other than to interview them extensively, if they have family members, interview them. >> there's a lot of holes in the process. what is the biggest single step the president-elect could take to move closer to extreme vetting? >> i think what he has to do is look at whether it really helps these people to bring them to the united states borders or to possibly do more to help them within other third party regions, like in jordan, you have a lot of syrian refugees. maybe we can help them better save their own countries and stay close to their borders and make it safe enough for them to go back. because it's not always easy for them when they come to country like america, it's such a culture shock and it's not easy for americans. >> absolutely. thank you for your expertise. we appreciate that. it was one of the top
4:51 am
political moments of the year. >> please clap. [ applause ] >> i didn't know that clip was coming. >> but there's plenty more where that came from. lee carter is here with the top political sound bites of 2016 next hour.

i love that. welcome back. it is almost time to pop the champagne while we ring in the new year but what kind are we having this morning? >> director of brand education at moet hennesey usa. you are a good person to know. >> i am. i'm invited to a lot of parties. >> we're starting from least expensive to most. where do we begin? >> on this table, we have your must-have selection for this new year's eve. it does range in price from $18 to $160. we have a wide range of selection in terms of flavor profiles. what's really fun is getting to know your style and which one it is. >> this is the bruet classic,

chandon. it is under $20. it's made in the same way that champaign is made but not in france. california. >> sparkling wine is made in california, not in france. >> the half bottle is a great idea because it keeps the price down, and also this is veuve cliquot. >> you can't save champagne. >> in terms of quality, how does it go? >> this is moet and chandon. it's the leading --

4:57 am
this is absolutely incredible champagne. >> how much is that? >> this is $57. this is a rose. it was the window cliquot who invented. >> we've got krug which is your luxury choice if you are going to be showing up at a party. this is krug. >> you recognize this one. >> you recognize dom perignon. >> a pretty penny. >> it is $169. >> pete is taking it home. >> we appreciate all the information. >> we've got some big news coming up. america's mayor, rudy giuliani is here live, is president obama using russia to under mine president-elect trump? we'll ask him next. he has become a pint-sized viral sensation after totally schooling a random girl with his street ball skills.

5:03 am
will not be taking those retaliatory actions against the u.s. for the sanctions that were issued, at least for the time being. earlier this morning, russia's foreign minister sergei laugh rock relinquished -- lavrov recommended that they issue actions. he will wait to see what actions donald trump takes once he is sworn in. yesterday, the obama administration took a series of actions against russia in response to its cyber campaign and it's not to influence our election, including sanctions of two of russia's leading intelligence agencies, shutting down two russian compounds in maryland and new york that have been used by russian personnel for intelligence purposes and
5:04 am
giving them 72 hours to leave the country. russian officials widely mocked these sanctions including the russian uk embassy and tweeted, president obama expels 35 russian diplomats in cold war deja vu. as everybody, including u.s. people, will be glad to see the last of this helpless lame duck. >> a statement was issued saying it's time for our country to move on to bigger and better things. nevertheless, in the interest of our country and its great people, i will meet with leaders of the intelligence community next week in order to be updated on the facts of this situation. the story long from over,y' all. >> this is a story that will be ongog and we're going -- let's bring in rudy giuliani, america's mayor to give us his take on this.
5:05 am
this isn't something as you know that president obama is dealing with. this is something that's landing in the lap of the president-elect as well. what do you make of this most recent development, russia not retail yating and the back-and-forth going on. >> i find it extraordinary in what president obama is doing. i've never seen a president try to create more problems for a future president. first, he double crosses israel and after many times and many other presidents vetoing the condemnation of israel for taking the settlements, he does it and creates lack of leverage for israel and the united states in trying to trade land for peace or try other negotiations in the last hours of his presidency. he completely double crosses one of our biggest allies, and now after 18 months of this hacking, he does something about it. why didn't he do something about it 18 months ago? it wouldn't have happened. somebody can honestly say none
5:06 am
of this would have happened if president obama had been awake -- if president obama had listened to mitt romney when mitt romney said russia was a threat and he laughed at him. >> yeah. >> if he didn't reset the relationship with russia and give up the defense of the czech republic and poland, if he didn't invite russia into syria and bring russia back into the middle east after 30 years of being out of the middle east, after all that, and letting this go for 18 months, two weeks before he goes out of office, he does a bunch of these sanctions just to create a problem for russia, and it's not only too little too late, it's almost silly in the way he did it. >> yeah. >> and "the new york times" reporting that they are trying in the white house to box in donald trump, your friend, so i wonder what you would counsel him to do in reaction. this is basically an executive
5:07 am
order. so as you know, on day one, donald trump can reverse all of this, but then he has his critics out there saying you are already too close to putin, if he reverses them, would that be a mistake? >> you make the right decision. you get your own people to review it. there's no question that the intelligence that president obama has been getting has either been incompetent or politicized. this is the jv team, right? isis was the jv team? this is the president who couldn't figure out how dangerous the islamic state was when people were telling him that, including me, on your show. this is the guy who thought russia wasn't a threat back just four years ago. this is the guy that allowed this hacking to go on for 18 months. if the democrats want to be angry about the hacking here, they should get angry at barack obama for doing nothing about it. also, if they hadn't written awful things, the hacking would have meant nothing. if they had actually been
5:08 am
writing legal and ethical things and not talking about quid pro quos and not talking about how miserable the candidates were, none of this would have meant anything. look, hacking is illegal. i do it for a leaving. i don't do hacking for a living. i do cyber security for a living, and this is prolific, and there should be very strong reactions against anyone who do it. >> right. and something that -- go ahead. >> i would -- i would urge president trump, when he becomes president trump, have his own intelligence people do their own report, let's find out who did it, and let's bang them back really hard. not some moving a couple of this ones or that ones around. they are not hacking from those places. it's totally absurd. >> yeah. and a concern that everyone should be aware of and concerned about, so we see an acknowledgment publicly on twitter between vladimir putin and president-elect donald trump. what's going on behind closed doors with president-elect
5:09 am
trump? have there been any real conversations with russian officials up to this point that you know of? >> i wouldn't comment on that. you know, i shouldn't -- it wouldn't comment on it and the reality is there is only one president at a time, and i think president-elect trump's statement was correct, you know. that he's going to take a very good look at the intelligence reports that the obama administration has, and then i would recommend to him that he have his own people do an independent report so we get beyond what has been very flawed intelligence. all those reports we had last year that president obama was getting the intelligence reports he wanted to hear, that we were winning the war, that isis wasn't that dangerous. i would want my own independent analysis of this and i would want to hit back harder than president obama hit back. i would want to hit the right
5:10 am
target. if you are going to -- if you are going to solve a murder, you arrest a murderer. not the candy store the murderer went to before he committed the murder. >> yeah. >> mr. mayor, you mentioned there's only one president at a time. usually that's leveled at the incoming president. >> but barack obama has made these decisions in the last three week on israel, and russia and elsewhere, is he trying to box in the president-elect? >> of course, he is. >> what is he trying to do? >> of course! the 18 months of hacking, why didn't he do something ten months ago, it nt nt never would have happened/he had done something about it 18 months ago? >> what does it say. [ overlapping voices ] >> what does that say about the legacy of president obama? >> i don't think there's much of a legacy at all, but what it says is there's a certain pettiness that i hadn't seen before. i mean, to do this after 18 months, when you could have prevented it ten months ago, to double cross israel in the last hours of his administration,
5:11 am
after pretending that he was a friend of israel which no one believed, i never believed it, not after the iran agreement, but at least he pretended to be a friend of israel, to do those two things, to basically reduce the leverage of the next president, look, a report like this done correctly could be tremendous leverage against whomever the hackers are, whether they are the russian government, russian operatives, or some other operatives. this would be tremendous leverage that could be used to help us. he's taking that leverage away from the next president. same thing with land-for-peace. he's taking tremendous leverage away from the state of israel and the president of the united states in dealing with the middle east and that's a shame, and annex president should act with more dignity and respect for the presidency than to do that. >> doesn't this go beyond just hacking? in order for president-elect trump to hit the reset button and get it right in his next term in office, don't you have to understand what it is that
5:12 am
russia wants and it goes beyond just hacking, they want to under mine the west. this is a much bigger picture than that, right, mayor? >> it's a much bigger picture. it has to be seen in a much bigger picture and that's why petty little actions like this don't mean very much. it's almost a mockery to say this is too little too late. it should have been done ten months ago, 11 months ago, 12 months ago. if it is really true, the response should be much stronger, but i want to see that report, and then i would want my own people -- i do investigations of hacking. i would want my own people to investigate this, and i would want to know who really did it and then i would hit them back so hard they wouldn't be able to do it again. >> mr. mayor, would you recommend -- we've got 30 seconds, would you recommend on day one donald trump let these diplomats back then and reverse some of these actions? >> i recommend that on day one he get his intelligence people together and gather all the information independently and then make a decision.
5:13 am
>> great. >> make decisions based on facts. not just on, you know, political reactions. >> sure. we hope you get some down time with your family down there in florida. happy new year, mr. mayor. >> happy new year. save a little champagne for me. >> there may be none left. i spilled it all. good to see you. have a good new year. a popular tourist destination and new york city stable is closing its doors for good in just a few hours. >> we send janice dean of course to the carnegie deli to catch up with last-minute diners and the owner. the big moments in politics in 2016. will hillary clinton's basket of deplorable comments be most memorable? lee carter is on deck with a look back. >> to be just grossly generalistic, you could put half of trump supporters into what i call the basket of deplorables.
5:14 am
5:15 am
5:16 am
after a contentious election season, we're taking a stroll down campaign memory lane. isn't it nice? some of the hits and misses. lee carter president and partner joins us with a look back. you are the best person to do this. you bring in the dials and you show us what the voters are actually thinking. this comment from hillary clinton, i want to play it, really blew up the campaign. >> to be grocery generalistic -- -- >> to be grossly genalistic, you would put half of trump supporters in the basket of
5:17 am
