3:01 am
or down if we really nailed it.
3:02 am
good morning on this sunday morning. abby: we were talking about new york city yesterday in the christmas decorations throughout. when this does a tiny bit, it is the most beautiful ever looks. they turn brown in a sober. >> do we still have that nice craziness happening? we'll get to the ice and craziness in the midwest. pete: that's why we have a night game tonight. abby: there is a lot of ice in washington d.c. tonight. clayton: celebrities now coming to the defense of congressman john lewis. do you remember yesterday we unfolded this whole live right here in the show, civil rights icon john lewis basically said he's not going to go the maturation joined a long list of democrats and republicans. he doesn't think he's a
3:03 am
legitimate president. now there's a lot of people a lot of people. republicans and democrats jumping to support him. tree into during show, donald trump tweeted yesterday responding to congressman lewis. he should spend more time on fixing his district which is in horrible shape and falling apart. rather than falsely complaining about the election results. all talk, talk, talk. no action or results. so that tweet's per 24 hours of reaction. abby: still coming in. pete: this morning, people saying it was out of line. abby: the list goes on. look at the tweets. this is from nancy pelosi. let us remember that many have tried to silence representative john lewis over the years. all have failed. clayton: some people think cory booker will be running for president in 2020. anyone who attacks representative john lewis loses legitimacy in my eyes,
3:04 am
especially someone you made a craven effort to delegitimize barack obama. pete: will crystal with a friend of mine, but has been no friend of donald trump tweets face. i'm afraid donald trump treats vladimir putin with more respect than he does john lewis. this is what i think people miss. no one is saying that john lewis is a hero. even by state troopers in that primary. everyone holds enough for web design. but because you get that 50 years ago, doesn't mean you are immune forever. it is like me saying i served in iraq 10 years ago so you can criticize me right now. abby: i don't think in that tweet -- he wasn't referring to anything he has done as it relates to civil rights. i woke up this morning feeling pretty sad about all of this. here we are than a week until this inauguration. we played a clip yesterday years back of the mainstream media basically laughing that the thought of donald trump ever
3:05 am
been president. i was pretty shocking to look back and see what he has been doing. if you look at the coverage. i will say now is a real opportunity for president elect shrub
3:06 am
you're not legitimate, you're not scared enough of that. now it's time to get some things done and hopefully this is not impediment.
3:07 am
as an opposition and an opposition employment and that's its most problematic. abby: that's what it should be. the greatest revenge is being one of the best presidents we've ever seen. getting into the office and getting thing done and proven you can bring this country over the past eight years i don't think we've been this divided in a very, very long time as president obama is walking away from office. mr. trump is a real opportunity here. >> you see this division, the hollywood of celebrities performing. jennifer holiday this morning backing out of performing at donald trump to maturation. she sent out this apology note saying i sincerely apologize for my lapse of judgment, for being uneducated on the issues that affect every american at this crucial time in history and for causing such dismay and heartbreak to my fans. there is then bad guys. i think they are backing out as well. there's been people sending all
3:08 am
these death threats. he better not perform there. think about that. the threats were performing at the inauguration. let's keep our focus for the focus should be. have the courage to stand up and say i will perform at the inauguration of the president of the united states. i will not back down to death threats or twitter followers who are frustrated or not. these are folks who are ultimately spineless when it comes to this. abby: has attacked yesterday, this is performing for your country. this is something that has been done since we've had inauguration. toby keith is also someone performing. he is not backing down. i do not apologize for performing for country or military. i performed for president bush, obama and over 200 shows in iraq and afghanistan for the uso. that is an american hero right there to say i'm going to put it all aside and i'm going to be a patriot here. i am going to stand up and perform. trained to perform in to perform anything heroic act? you know what they mean, you
3:09 am
shouldn't be that way. it is the threat, the assault, the protests. there were no protests like this in 2008. there were no non-jewish were no non-jewish in protest of barack obama. the tea party came about after in reaction to his policies. this is a permanent opposition be manufactured from the beginning. abby: eight years ago they did not 200,000 bikers coming to protect barack obama. because they didn't have to. clayton: i would love to hear this. go to our facebook page and weigh in on that. running feverishly through the studios are meant to to get in here. >> i just had to get up here. thank you. good morning, guys. we have this big ice storm. last week i mentioned the drive in california. all of the snow and all the rain in california appeared take a look at this where we are in a drought in california last week. asked for a year.
3:10 am
this is a drought monitor going over the last year and here we are. the drought in northern california is gone because it has been greatly eliminated. more rain will start on wednesday to thursday. hopefully that will continue. into the central plains we still have this purple. that is an ice storm warning going on. where you see that it's rained, that is frozen surfaces and causing more and more ice to accumulate in the same spots where it was yesterday and it is going to continue the same spot for much of the day today. temperature wise, anywhere below 32 means of freezing when it makes contact. joplin missouri formed up a little bit. later on today and tomorrow, the warm air is going to live towards the north. we are going to move that i saw little bit further off towards the north. so a lot of energy across the four corners with texas and some severe weather, and maybe a
3:11 am
tornado or two across texas. abby: keep an eye now. thanks, rick. other headlines this morning. inauguration officials have one chance to work out any kinks of the ceremony. in just a few hours, four u.s. army members will stand in for the president elect, vice president-elect and a wise to do a complete walk-through. it involves everything from if not details to standing. it is the end of an era for an iconic american attraction. >> welcome to the greatest show. abby: at ringling brothers and barnum and bailey closing up to 146 year run. that's unbelievable. due to declining ticket sales and constant fights with animal rights activists over the show -- they will be in rhode island in may. that is a bummer. some playoff football, new england patriots trampling 34-16 to advance their sick straight afc title game, pummeling the

3:20 am
the organizers of this protest. we are here to provide a space for anyone who actually just wants to stand up and call for -- call for something better and really set a tone of resistance. abby: hey, lacey, did you vote this time? >> yes, indeed i voted. also, i was like many people in the united states. i didn't necessarily feel very happy with many of the major options. pete: you want to call for something better, but you are leading the resistance. i'm not sure how resistance leads to something better when you have a new president coming in to secure our border in things like that. >> welcome her with a strong showing among people who are in the labor movement, who are hard-working people, who are organized into unions and people who aren't organized into unions, who support these at work, hard work. absolutely, we think -- we

3:25 am
and then we saw it crumbled because just a few thousand votes in pennsylvania, michigan and wisconsin. pete: abby: heller clinton was caught passing hillary clinton debate questions during the primary. abby: i do remember that. let's bring in nigel farage, one of our favorite guests here on "fox and friends sundays." your reaction to hearing donna brazil sanely got it wrong. what do you think? >> i think that is right. it's not the story of 2016.the remaining camp in my country.they would win and democrats that they would win and we had and we have these two big electoral surprises. we start this year. i think those of us have been wanting change for years, we start this year with more optimism than we've had for years. pete: some people not going in
3:26 am
with optimism at the american elites the american elite speared media, democrats, leftists, others are losing it if they don't know how to react to incoming trump administration. they protested throughout the. what do you make of that and how similar is that to what you saw in reaction to this up-tempo? >> it is still happening here. we still have many members of parliament saying it's all a terrible mistake. we must rerun the whole thing. this is not a size. the u.s. ambassador to the european union the other day, two days ago saying we must and reversed 50 years of american foreign policy towards the e.u. these guys have had it away for too long. they have lost in the important thing, the really important thing that i'm sure trump will do is to get rid of all those people and replace them with the new administration with new bureaucrats and the ambassadors who will help this program through. pete: you are being called nuts this morning by the obama camp.
3:27 am
and they are warning, the trump administration, to not beat duke by the likes of brexit of nigel farage. would you say to the obama administration this morning? >> the obama administration a part of this global elite. they love the european union because they saw as a prototype for a bigger form of world government, something infinitely better that hillary won they would try slowly but surely to send america up to. i've been called nuts for over 20 years. i am quite used to it. so nuts that helped precipitate a referendum for which we want and i'll give you one nutty prediction. the european union is dying. opposition to a spring in to a springing up north from the south, east, west of europe. we are headed towards a different way of organizing ourselves across the western world and it is a good thing. abby: i think you have proven your positions are so naïve. some of the left, including
3:28 am
president obama and their team proved that what happened in the u.k., this is not something that will last for a long period of time. what is your response to that? >> well again, aj shows they don't understand the new reality. 2016 was the year the voters, the little people as they call them, realize if they go down to the polling station and engage with the electoral process, they can topple the elites. now they've got a taste for it. they like it. they are excited by it. the sooner the obama administration and so many here in our media and in the house of the comments, we can start again with a clean sheet and say we are now going to be nationstates. democratic nationstates. we should trade with each other. we will be friends with each other, but will not give bureaucrats control of our lives ever again. clayton: you made the prediction that e.u. is outdated.
3:29 am
that doesn't mean it's right or the future. you see this spreading further? marine le pen in france visited trump tower, not necessarily mr. trump, but do you see other countries doing what the u.k. dead and when do you see that happening? >> well, i'll tell you what, the first big thing to watch are the elections of benevolence which take place in march. it was a very strong eurosceptic, also is some controversy, but a very strong critic of the netherlands membership. he is currently leading the opinion polls. she is currently favorite to win the french presidency, but expected to loosen the second round. these things happen right across europe. what i say is this. whether le pen wins or not or whether they win or don't, they will shift the center of gravity towards the world debate within
3:30 am
france and the netherlands. overnight, the deputy prime minister of the netherlands has said the board is in europe for a race to the bottom in terms of worker wages. whether we get the dramatic upset like trump and like brexit or not is hard to call at this moment. but don't rule it out. even if we don't, the argument is changing. abby: always great to talk to you. pete: nigel farage, thanks so much. if you between john lewis and donald trump. the president-elect gets bashed for defending himself. if the backlash they are the backlash fair? we'll debate it next. plus, is this what it's like when you visit your in-laws? >> i love my daughter. i love her more than anything. but frankly, sir, i'm a little terrified to be her son-in-law. pete: great movie. the study said in moscow be secret to a happy marriage. abby: hitting the ice. this is not your normal everyday race.

3:38 am
defeated and are a nation at twitter firestorm with people i congressman you that clark tweeted this. donald trump is sent to polish john lewis is boos. is this fair? danielle maclaughlin and spokesperson for the chunk campaign, katrina piercing. anytime i hear people are fund-raising on the backs of something, my antennae go up like a grasshopper. it seems to me this is all some sort of larger plan. do you buy the argument, is john lewis untouchable? >> john lewis is an american hero. democrats are fund-raising because the donald trump is completely and utterly unacceptable. this is a man who marched and had a price tag bombed so we could be more free and more equal. this is a man who stands for american values. what he's talking about when he talks about the legitimacy of the election is the involvement of a foreign state that favored
3:39 am
donald trump to win the election. he says what he thinks. what happened here was donald trump blew it. he blew it big-time. he could've said i understand what is going on and he could have reached out to mr. lewis, to representative lewis. but instead, he just slammed him. >> your response to this? >> well, one of the things she thought about john lewis was the fact she attacked donald trump and donald trump also has a first amendment right to defend himself. this criticism is not fair and it never supposed to be fair for republicans because republicans are supposed down, shut up and be publicly humiliated. donald trump entered the arena and said several times he attacked me i'll hit you back. that's exactly what happened here. this is the democrats do. they pick a fight and they play the victim. that's all that's happening here. pete: here is what piers morgan had to say. he said john lewis trashes trump
3:40 am
is illegitimate so is the pot back, but only trump is the villain. bring up the civil rights legacy that donald trump did mention at all. the illegitimacy by foreign governments and our election yet there is no evidence that would sway the election. what is he talking about? >> the reporting on the intelligence community did look whether with the russian involvement. but many talk about is the fact that donald trump in eight years try to delegitimize president obama number one. looking for when the birth certificate was produced. i think what trump has lost her son on the moral authority because he stood on the sideline and try to delegitimize the current president, but he did what he needs to get done. pete: are doing this is payback. donald trumps further movement
3:41 am
and this is simply payback for the illegitimacy trump is trying to voice about president obama. >> this is absolutely payback. i'll have to disagree. this does in her donald trump's political clout. it gains because he is someone standing up for himself. let's talk about illegitimate claim here is was some regard to russia. it was a russia told hillary clinton to set up the secret server. it wasn't russia to attend thousands of people all over this country for donald trump. hillary clinton could name until high school. beyoncé and jc couldn't bring the crowd that donald trump out all over this country. what they are doing is besmirching the american public and these election results because john lewis of all people should know that maybe they didn't support hillary clinton. after all, he's the one that dumped clinton in 2008 for president obama. why is it all of a sudden a problem other people do it too? pete: we appreciate you debating us this morning. thanks so much. 6:40 in the morning.

3:48 am
did not the "washington post" and outlets immediately jumped to a one-sided narrative. >> because they've been trump as the enemy. you've got this situation. who is very much like the power grid story. they released the story saying that russia had the power grid. they fit their narrative. this whole russian hacking, helping trump then. but of course they find out the worst "washington post" never even contacted the company until after the story post it. we find there was a bogus story. one person got ma where. the corrections are always very deep in the paper. the headlines always dominate. pete: they fancied themselves watchdogs. but if nobody is watchdogging done and they are being biased and one-sided, how did they get the truth? in this case, literally speaking the narrative is look at the nasty trump folks fire in this
3:49 am
general in the middle of the night duration when he instead decided he doesn't want to be a part of that second part of the day. how does that come out and how did they not do the basic fact check? >> well, they have an agenda. that's what it comes down to. thankfully there are watchdogs like us. it's important to remember here we are at the week of the non-girl three months ago. the "washington post" was talking about trump's breathtaking review to accept the election results. three months later you pick up the paper today and they are warning about the rise of hyper partisanship that they helped create. it is complete cluelessness. the mac it is. it's a one-sided good by newly exposed by mr. tom himself. when is able to stand at a podium or a tweet or go above them, it sends them absolutely sick. do you see them changing at all? >> i see them getting worse.
3:50 am
91% of coverage of trump. it's hard to find any positive coverage of trump. even the media then are enforced with relations with russia are improving. i don't know why they think standing up to china is a bad thing, standing up to russia is somehow something we have to do. it seems like we should try to figure out some foreign policy where we are not going to war with any major nations, but we are not letting them roll over countries as well. pete: thanks for watchdogging them. you are right. the "washington post" and "the new york times" are indicting themselves. appreciate you being here this morning. a broadway star backs out of performing at the night duration after backlash from the left. but did she really need to apologize? we will look at that. plus, "strange inheritance" is back for a new season and it kicks off with a piece of presidential history. she joins us live with the preview. there she is, next.

it seems like so often it turns back to race because that's not at all what mr. trump was tweet about. and as we talked yesterday, democrats are still very much in denial. i find it kind of sad that we are just days away now from the inauguration, and there is this war over what's going on. the country needs healing. pete: we spoke to a protester in the 6:00 hour who said if donald trump becomes president, she's still using the language -- it's like what world do youly in? clayton: they're not going to know how to handle themselves. jennifer holliday, pop singer, she was going to be performing at trump's inauguration -- pete: she agreed to -- yeah. clay che now she sends out this apology, and she's saying i sincerely apologize for being uneducated on the issues that affect every american at this crucial time in history. she is now back out of performing at trump's --
4:07 am
abby: yeah, but, you know, so this is ultimately all about her because what is being reported is that she ultimately read an article in the daily beast that made her change her mind. pete: after she agreed to do it. abby: the article was jennifer holliday will perform at trump's inauguration which is heartbreaking to gay fans to which she thought, well, i need my gay fans with me. she backed out of this because of this article that she realize. pete: but, again, and remind me who was the first candidate at the republican convention to talk about lgbt issues? it was donald trump. you know what i mean? the hysteria here, they'll find any angle. clayton: when she initially agreed to do it, she said this is for the people, this is for the people. and then suddenly when she gets a little pushback, it's not for the people anymore. abby: it makes me appreciate the performers will be there, three doors down, as we announce

i'd like the democrats to take just a little bit of respondent be here, abby. abby: chuck, who is to blame here? >> well, i think there's a lot of people to blame, and i think nancy pelosi does bring up a good point that these wars were not funded. but i think there's a lot of blame to go around on both sides of the aisle, i think that's why the popularity of the guys on capitol hill is at 18 or 20%. when you run to the extreme right and left, you leave out a lot of hard working americans in the middle, and they want to see results. they want to see job creation, so i don't think throwing hate at either side is the solution. abby: matt, there's certainly not been a focus on handling our debt. >> look, i agree with chuck, it's not like republicans have clean hands here. one of the big mistakes we've made under the obama administration is that actually

john boehner and now paul ryan and mitch mcconnell, they've done a pretty good job with the tiny little sliver of spending that's called discretionary spending which is what you all have to cover when government's getting shut down. but the 90% of government that matters which is about these entitlements, we actually spend very little time talking about. i think as we get into the repeal of obamacare and we start talking about medicare and medicaid, we can move to a conversation about social security. if we don't solve these problems, these programs won't be around, and if the debt keeps growing, we'll have no future. abby: i think we can all agree on that one. chuck and matt, good to see you both. all right. a long list of celebrities and musicians are refusing to participate in the inauguration, but one of trump's proud deplorables right there joining us next. and can you hear mow? one woman's payback for bad cell phone service. this is hilarious. ♪ ♪

globalization, open borders, free trade, is that what he's saying? because i don't buy it. >> at the moment the trade agreements around the world work very much to china's advantage. they've got good access to all major markets around the world. trump wants to reverse that to some degree. how much, we don't know, but he wants the reverse it. so here you have a lot of noise going to be made. the elites, they've all gathering there. this is the top media people, business executive, government, the whole ball of wax. they're all there in the alps in davos -- abby: they're all there. >> and china's leader's going to address them and say, hey, globalization is great. pete: what are they going to do? how are they going to stop what trump -- he clearly has the pulse of people who want borders, they want america first. >> oh, i think they're in trouble because voters around the world are beginning to say, hold on a minute, this globalization isn't necessarily working for us. however, i've got to say that trump's america first policy is

[laughter] i'm already getting tired. >> well, i just gave you three examples, there's a lot more. pete: exactly. >> there's a stack of companies. but they're trying to get on

trump's good side because they don't want to be pressured by the incoming president of the united states. clayton: well, and you bring up a great point. amazon, we heard word of this mysterious wireless network they want to set up in washington state, and they want the trump administration's approval to be able to test this new wireless system -- >> and let's not forget, amazon's found per, jeff bezos, also owns outright "the washington post", the most vehemently anti-trump publication at this point, so maybe amazon is beginning to say we don't want problems with mr. trump, so 100,000 new jobs, extra program up there in washington state, and it's working. pete: if he does change the regulatory and tax environment, that's going to benefit them. >> that is the carrot. we'll give you lower taxes and deregulation, stay in america, grow in america, that's my message. abby: well, you may not be invited to davos, but you're always invited here.

5:16 am
john lewis started it by saying he does not disregard donald trump as president, on the other hand i think counterproductively donald trump then fired back on twitter calling john lewis all talk no action. if there's one person in america you can't say that about is john lewis, since he was the fellow who walked across the bridge on bloody sunday in alabama and got his head cracked open by the police. so there's plenty of action in his life fighting for civil rights. and the more important question really is, you know, donald trump as the president, he's trying to get things done, he's going to need democratic votes. why get into a fight with john lewis, even if john lewis started the fight? >> chris, this debate about legitimacy. got me looking back on how barack obama was tweeted on january 20th, 2009. reported almost no protests. the tea party movement didn't start until after he elected.
5:17 am
was this unprecedented? >> well, there was certainly after the 2000 election, which was of course the contested election in florida. but it is interesting to note that when george w. bush took the oath of office in january of 2001, he had an approval generating in the '60s. donald trump still has an approval generating in the '40s and, yes, he's going to be president, but he's going to need popular support in order to get all of this very ambitious agenda done. and getting into fights with people like john lewis doesn't help him in reaching out and trying to build the coalitions. whether they're best friends or not, the coalition he needs to get things accomplished. >> we've been with playing the video all morning admitting of democrats got a bit cocky this election. were you surprised by that statement from her? >> well, no, i think that there's a lot of, you know, various states of grief going on with democrats. obviously, there was some anger, and there's been some
5:18 am
depression, and now seeing some acceptance. hillary clinton was not a very good candidate, as we know. she took some of these states, the blue wall and the upper midwest states like wisconsin and michigan and pennsylvania for granted. and it came back to bite her. >> you've got a big show lined up on fox news sunday. starting with vice president elect mike pence. tell us about that and more. >> well, let me just say here in the studio, they were swarming with secret service and dog sniffing out various things because all the security is up. we're going to have the vice president elect obviously talk about the john lewis controversy, talk about that unverified -- completely unverified dossier that the intelligence community handed over and more importantly, talk about the trump agenda and the message of the inauguration. and then as if that weren't enough, we're also going to have an exclusive interview, exit interview with john brennon, the cia director. one of the questions for him why on earth did the intelligence community think they should hand over this

it's going to be difficult. i don't see president-elect as a legitimate president. i see the russians participating in getting this man elected, and they helped destroy the candidacy of hillary clinton. i don't plan to attend the inauguration. will be the first one that i miss since i've been in congress. you cannot be at whole with something that you feel is wrong. >> that's representative john lewis. kellyanne conway, senior adviser to president-elect donald trump who certainly has his ear is joining us in this studio. you were speaking to the president-elect moments ago. literally right as we're sitting here. >> that's the president-elect. always engaged. >> so he fired off a series of tweets yesterday. and this is what's caused this firestorm. we'll get you to respond this morning how this went. but he sent this yesterday morning during our show. >> this is the one that went out last night. later in the day.
5:32 am
because there were two in the morning that talked about all talk no action. and then later in the evening, he wrote congressman john lewis should focus on the inne criminal infested inner cities. >> and work together. look, donald trump went out there, and he boldly went where very few republicans would go before. he went to the inner cities and said what do you have to lose? and then he responded. he got a higher percentage of the african-american vote than did mitt romney or john mccain. and people heard that message. he was talking about better schools, he was talking about jobs and opportunity, he was talking about fixing infrastructure in inner cities, reducing crime and drugs. but he needs to help those people like congressman john lewis and others, and i would just say we all, everyone agrees that congressman lewis is a civil rights and voting rights leader, and he's -- he deserves our praise for that. but it is disappointing to hear somebody who has such an important voice and platform to say what he said about the president -- which, by the
5:33 am
way, is just false. he is a legitimate president. he won over 2700 counties. he flipped 200 obama counties and now donald trump counties. and in john lewis' state of georgia, donald trump won by five points, and he won 128 counties. hillary clinton won 31 counties in georgia. so we need to work together to help the inner cities and everyone else in america, and we would like to -- abby: that is the interesting thing, though, the tweet he sent out yesterday, and we reported on our show, it didn't have anything to do with race. it didn't have anything to do with john lewis' past. you saw how it played out yesterday with democrats tweeting about this, the mainstream media turning into that debate. what did you make of that? >> abby, disappointing but not surprising. the media got this party started earlier in the week by talking about and publishing the fake news to call into question donald trump's election. that's really where the irresponsibility started.
5:34 am
and here we are later in the week talking about it in a later form. donald trump as the newly elected president in those wee hours of november 9th made it very clear that he was going to become president. that has never changed. his inaugural address will be very envisionary, very inclusive. and i hope those who are planning protests. >> already have been protesting. >> get onboard. >> do you think they're trying to bait him that this is a fundraising effort? because we're seeing e-mails go out trying to raise money on the democratic side, and they're trying to get under the president-elect's skin. >> these are preplanned. >> preplanned. why would he swing at pitches in the dirt? does he need to do that anymore? >> well, he has a right to defend himself, and he is famously the counterpuncher. if you look back and look, donald trump very rarely draws first blood. i respect that about him. he's not picking fights. he's president of the united states. he's going to fix the economy and bring these jobs back from
5:35 am
mexico and china. it's already happening, look at these private industries reducing the costs of goods and services, canceling plans to have their factories move to mexico. he's already a man of action. and, in fact, -- but when he's attacked, everybody just says he should be the bigger man. why is he attacked in the first place? >> i'm just saying should he ignore it? >> let me tell you something. that man ignores plenty. he has had an unprecedented number of attacks and personal attacks against him. i think it's the strength of a leader. somebody who can make himself so impervious to his naysayers and critics. but he also is responding, ladies and gentlemen, because he has a great message and a plan for our inner cities and for the rest of america. and we want everybody at this time to come together and say let's give this man his opportunity to execute on this plan. these kids are failing in schools, they're trapped by the zip codes. he's the guy that believe in education reform for them. >> speaking of an opportunity to come together. on friday, the president-elect
5:36 am

kellyanne conway is right -- [audio difficulty] >> he has not taken office yet. what happened in this country to the standard of letting someone have a day, if not a hundred days, before you're questioning the legitimacy? and as you pointed out, it was president obama himself who said this was a free and fair election. clayton: yeah. well, one of the questions i asked kellyanne conway was can you give us a preview of the speech?

she said it will be a unifying speech, something donald trump has his hands deeply involved in -- abby: she also said it'll be a short speech. clayton: yeah, but a unifying speech, ed. what do you make of that? >> two things. one is they said it was going to be to be a short speech when he came down the escalator and announced for president, but it went on for over an hour. when he clears his throat and he's got something to say whether it's on twitter or in front 06 -- front of the american people, i suspect it's going to go longer. think about what else was in the i have a dream speech. quote, now is the time to lift our nation from the quick sands of racial injustice to the solid rock of brotherhood. that was martin luther king saying let's come together, let's have brotherhood. i suspect that if donald trump talks more about that than this back and fort with john lewis, it's something that's going to resonate -- abby: our producers yesterday put together just sort of a montage looking back over the

6:26 am
united states and will be sworn in on friday. i think it's very concerning for both sides and for the american people should be the fact that we're starting to play a game of verbal russian roulette that will not help this country come to together, and instead of focusing on issues like repealing obamacare, tax reform, creating an education system that works for everyone or focusing on the fact that in the rural america and in inner cities whether it's drug overdoses or crime, we have serious issues and hopelessness is pervasive in those two very large pockets of america. abby: yeah. i think that's a spot-on message. you look, though, at how this originally started, who threw the first punch here, and that interview that he did where he talked about president-elect trump being an ill legit9 mate -- illegitimate candidate and basically boycotting the inauguration, is he immune to criticism, do you think? >> i'm not sure that he's immune to criticism.
6:27 am
i think how we respond to criticism is very important. however, i think no doubt i disagree with what he said, i think he should be present at the inauguration. but at the end of the day, i've had my own experience with twitter this past week with lots and lots of criticism coming my way -- abby: we've all been there, haven't we? >> we have, indeed. what i realize though is what people say about me says more about them than it does me. how i respond says a lot about who i am and where i want to take this country. so both sides have real challenges for their interaction, but, yes, we should find a way to focus on the issues that bring america together. and, unfortunately, the weekend that we celebrate the life and the sacrifice of the reverend dr. martin luther king jr. and the notion that smile of god's children, black ones and white ones, brown ones and red ones should join hands and sing with new meaning, i think we should
6:28 am
focus on that future. and, unfortunately, i have not seen that. pete: how do you focus on that future and coming together when you've got, i mean, speak bluntly to this, when you've got one part of the country or one side of the spectrum saying we won't even accept you? we're going to protest you before you're even in office, we're taking our ball and going home? you can talk all you want about healing, but if they won't play ball, what can you do? >> without any question, i say to my friends on the left that it's very important for us as leaders, especially as leader, not to play a petty game of who's at fault. one thing i have sat through is a lot of briefings on the russian hacking scandal. there been one thing that's come completely clear out of that deep dive into the information. there's not even a hint of evidence that i've seen that suggests that any of the russian hacking and/or impact, had any impact on the outcome of the election.
6:29 am
so we should focus on the fact that president trump has an agenda,s has an agenda to bring this country together. i would like for our president-elect as well as our friends on the left to sit down and work together as adults for those things that the american people have said here are our priorities. donald trump won because he understood the pain, the suffering, the low incomes, the poor education system. he understood those issues. he spoke to those issues in an attractive way at times and in a clear way at other times. that's what we want. clayton: senator, we have some tough confirmation hearings this week, and betsy devos being targeted ahead of these, we've been hearing trouble with other confirmations. do you think she's going to have much opposition in the education department? >> absolutely. she will definitely have -- here's the funny thing about even my comments. i'm focused on bringing the country together, there are

folks that will sit on the senate health committee and try to skewer her over her focus and her support of providing quality education for every single child no matter the zip codes. three years ago i went to michigan and spoke at the aviation charter high school that is funded in part by betsy devos and the devos family. these are folks who have been committed to providing quality education to at risk kids not for a year, not for two year, but three decades almost. they're committed. she's committed to the cause of quality education. she puts the kid before the rest of the system, and that's the way education should be. abby: so we had kellyanne conway last hour, and she's had a look at the speech. she said it's a short one, she said it's about bringing this country together. what advice would you give him, what message do you want to hear? >> i think that's exactly it. i think we should focus on the
6:31 am
policies and not the personalities. donald trump, i have met with him for several hours over the last four or five years, i found him to be a very gracious person when you're sitting there with him. he, without any question, is a counterpuncher. the good news is he's an equal opportunity offender at times. he dose after the actresses and actors in hollywood. if you hit him, he's going to hit you back. so that's something we'll have to get used to. but i think what we'll hear in that speech which will be a lot of fun is his focus on how to provide opportunities for rural america and for inner cities, how to have a tax code that works for this country's competitive position in a global economy. pete: senator, we've only got ten seconds. out of all the nominees, are there any you wouldn't support that trump's put forward? >> i have not seen one that i would emphatically deny my support to. these guys and gals are very smart, very intelligent and, i think, will serve well.
