2:00 pm
>> neil: i would love to sit and chat, my fellow americans, but i've got to leave for washington. i owe it to you to keep this country straight and deliver the skinny on the biggest event ever. >> hi, i'm greg gutfeld with "the five" ." as our current president lets bombers, traders, crack dealers out of jail, it is president-elect trump we should fear. right, carol? >> a lot of people in the country are scared. they are anxiety ridden. they want to hear something from him that says it's going to be okay. instead we are hearing from the competitive -- combative donald trump. >> the feeling is that the president-elect is feeling this because he continues to be
2:01 pm
adversarial on issues he's concerned with. at the same time. >> he is entrenching americans in their camp. >> he is the only costello less serious than lou. >> we have traveled the world together. we did a few singles, a few doubles together. i have offered advice that i thought was pretty sound, like don't do stupid stuff. and even when you complained about my long answers, i just want you to know that the only reason they were long was because you asked six part questions. >> to that, dr. jekyll trump is mr. hyde. he is a pissed off creamsicle. few minded one hilary called half of america irredeemable. republicans are always demonized
2:02 pm
now for once we demonize back. here is joy behar from the knitting circle in hell. the inauguration of a certain person is happening january 20th. >> shall not be named. >> happening january 20th. there are millions of people who did not vote for him and who feel frightened. i run into people all the time. joy, keep talking. we are scared but we don't know what to do. >> no one says keep talking to joy. the good old days when only liberals scared us. the weather underground, black panthers. president obama. when the left kills its romantic. a republican is rude. that's evil. it's young leftists threaten campus security to a point where right-wing events are canceled and anti-trump leftists plan to
2:03 pm
attack inaugural events, the media keep saying people beware of trump. perhaps projecting panic masks their bias. with the media does to trump is what they did the cops. say the police are really harmful, then later ask why people are so scared of the police. so they treat a trump white house like a zombie apocalypse. one thing is clear, judging from the last presser, the press adores president obama. they still do. yet they fear trump. change is good. all right, eric. let's be honest. that was a pretty boring press release. >> there were some interesting points on chelsea manning, voter fraud, fake news. there was some good stuff in there. i felt bad for him. that was a long press conferenc conference. he got everyone on cable news. he went to univision. lgbtq tv. can you imagine?
2:04 pm
you're the most powerful human being on the planet for eight years. in 48 hours, you're just one of us, mr. president. he didn't really make any news. he was asked about whatever it is. 66 democrats that are going to boycott the migration. he docked that. i think he was there as a final good-bye. >> the media loves him. i think it's because he's so much like them. he is a coworker but trump is a boss. >> i gain all my strength by drinking the tears of liberals. i love that everyone is having so much anxiety. i love the joy behar can't seem to get through a segment without saying the next president's name. now you know what it feels like to be me, when i woke up and realize the iran deal was going through. this is the time of change and i'm glad that so many people are finally feeling what was like to be a conservative for the past eight years. >> i want to play a sot, that is
2:05 pm
sound on tape for america. >> i have enjoyed working with all of you. that does not of course mean that i've enjoyed every story that you have filed but that's the point of this relationship. you are not supposed to be sycophants. you're supposed to be skeptics. you're supposed to ask me tough questions but you are not supposed to be complementary. but you are supposed to cast a critical eye on folks who hold enormous power. and make sure that we are accountable to the people who sent us here. >> in the middle of that, i regretted groaning because i forgot how boring it is. >> i fell asleep. >> there was a point to be made about how the press held him accountable. >> it's at a complete joke. i think he has received more leniency from the media than any other president. here's the problem. right now we are seeing such an erosion of trust from americans in various institutions, particularly the media.
2:06 pm
if you look up gallup, trust in the media is at an all-time low. it's counterproductive for people in the media to drive, sensationalize headlines are buzzfeed and cnn running information about the unsubstantiated dossier because it feeds the distrust in the media and then when the media actually tries to hold donald trump accountable on things that maybe he should be held accountable on, nobody is going to believe it. it's counterproductive for them to continue this mass hysteria. >> juan, you know, there's the media talking about how scary it is. there frightening children. they are frightening children about what is going to happen with president trump as obama frees a bomber, and fln terrorist. that's kind of scary. >> i would look at the specifics of the case. i don't think it's that scary. i thought the, you just made that the press was so easy on obama. we are sitting here at fox news.
2:07 pm
fox news has been absolutely tough on obama. >> fox news has been objective. >> whatever you want to say about our coverage but i would say that the press has not exactly been a lapdog. >> the press in general. tears coming from the reporters. >> there were several reporters there who seemed like they were emotionally attached. chris matthews. i thought president obama was directly speaking to president-elect trump about the press eric don't forget today president-elect trump said we were going to have the press corps in the white house. that has been put out there. sean spicer said maybe they would move them out to the old executive office building, the eisenhower building. president obama said it holds us accountable to have you here, that there is an important role. apparently, i don't know if you
2:08 pm
put direct pressure or spoke to president-elect trump about it but apparently that decision are reversed. >> the criticism president obama has received he can't even take because he has blamed fox news, blamed conservative radio for painting him in this negative light. that's why people didn't like him are that's why his policies were perceived as failures. the criticism he didn't receive he couldn't even handle. don't you think of president obama was treated to that same degree that soon to be president trump was treated by the media might be a different circumstance as well because you look at the coverage that donald trump received in the general election. 91% was negative rates because i believe donald trump is a very different person. i think greg pointed this out great if you listen to president obama even at the risk of getting bored he's not dropping bombs every minutes and he's not attacking people and is not tweeting out attacks on people. >> just letting gitmo detainees out. >> i hear you but i hope you heard me. >> the influence of israel. >> in the last few days it's
2:09 pm
like he's going down a checklist. he is trying to make america as the least safe as possible. he's going to have to live with the legacy. if he was so successful in the press, i've believe i agree with you. anyone who spends time around reporters knows how much they love him. you don't usher in the era of trump if you haven't been an abysmal failure. it's such a pendulum swing. you're not just talking about a conservative. you're talking about a populist movement that made his way to the white house. if you are so good of these policies hillary clinton would be president. >> i disagree. i think it back to the fact that he's so cool the people want -- >> is so boring that he could sneak stuff by americans. because we done stories about 90% of the press donations have gone to democrats. the press is wildly leaning liberal. we know that's the case. now we have in the press briefing room, 90% of the people
2:10 pm
in that room are going what are we going to do now? please help us. help us figure out what we're going to do with president-elect donald trump. one presently like donald trump is giving the briefing, there freaking out. they are begging obama to help figure out what the next four, eight years is going to look like. the pendulum is going to swing exactly the other way where you guys are going to be seen as the hostile press to president donald trump much the same way that president obama saw fox news as hostile to him. >> did they even ask about the fla and terrorist? i kind of tuned out. might be my fault. i don't think it came up. that's kind of weird. if i'm wrong, let me know. i'm sure they will. i don't know. i think that they don't want him to go. they don't want him to go. >> i'm sure. >> let me tell you, someone has been a washington reporter, the press corps has a lot of trouble with obama in terms of pursuing
2:11 pm
leaks, going after people, prosecuting them. historical high in terms of that kind of treatment of reporters but when you hear the prospect. we know their realities. donald trump during the campaign saying i don't want to -- i am taking away the credentials of "the washington post" or i have the crowd shouting and screaming at the press. that's a whole different ball of wax. stick we've got to move on. more from president obama's final news conference when "the five" returns. president george h.w. bush and his wife barbara are in the hospital. updates on their condition ahea ahead. take one of those pillows and take a big smell.
2:12 pm
they smell really fresh. what if we told you we washed these sheets 7 days ago. really no way downy? downy fabric conditioner. give us a week, and we'll change your bed forever. want more freshness? add new downy fresh protect.
2:13 pm

2:14 pm
and get medical help right away. ask your doctor about cialis.
2:15 pm
>> welcome back to "the five." we want to bring you up to speed on the health of former president george h.w. bush. he was admitted to an intensive care unit in texas paired his wife barbara was also hospitalized as a precaution. more from casey stegall outside houston methodist hospital. >> good to see you, juan. we've been told all morning long that doctors were "very pleased about the progress that the former president was making since he was admitted." over the weekend. in fact, there was some talk of
2:16 pm
a potential discharge, that bad could happen but then this afternoon things changed. a spokesperson for the president came out and said that mr. bush was moved to intensive care for treatment of a respiratory issue relating to pneumonia. now, a spokesperson for the president says mr. bush was moved, and doctors say that the 92-year-old was sedated so that his airway could be cleared and secured. he's now said to be stable and resting comfortably. as is his wife, barbara, the former first lady was also admitted to the exact same hospital here in houston this morning after she started experiencing fatigue and coughing. staffers say this was done as a precaution but earlier in his final press conference, president obama shared these words about the former first family. >> they have not only dedicated their lives to this country. they have been a constant source
2:17 pm
of friendship and support and good counsel for michelle and me over the years. they are as fine a couple as we know, and so we want to send our prayers and our love to them. really good people. >> president bush spent a week at methodist hospital, back in 2014, you remember. through the christmas holiday when he was also treated for shortness of breath. then the following year, the elder bush was hospitalized in may after breaking a vertebra in his neck from falling at their kennebunkport home. for now, the president and mrs. bush, the former first lady, resting comfortably here at methodist hospital back behind me. no word on when they could be discharged from the hospital. >> thank you, casey. back to president obama's final news conference today.
2:18 pm
right off the bat, he was asked about his decision to commute the decision of former army private chelsea manning. she leaked classified information to wikileaks read the president explains. >> let's be clear. chelsea manning has served a tough prison sentence, so the notion that the average person who is thinking about this, disclosing vital classified information, that it will go unpunished, i don't think would get that impression from the sentence that chelsea manning has served. he had served a significant amount of time, that it made sense to commute and not pardon her sentence. i feel very comfortable that justice has been served and that
2:19 pm
a message has still been sent. >> well, eric, seven years but the president says it's time to have some clemency. >> i have no idea. this is insane. justice has been served? chelsea manning, bradley manning, chelsea manning got 35 years for violating the espionage act, stealing government property, government fraud, multiple counts of disobeying. leaking documents to wikileaks that would put military members on risk. that's different from other things president obama may be referring to. this guy, gal now, putting a lot of americans at risk. maybe people died because of some of the things that were leaked. at one point we were going to go after chelsea manning or bradley manning for treason. a capital crime. open to the death penalty. president obama commutes the sentence after he said seven years. it's three years since the conviction. this is insane. you're absolutely telling people
2:20 pm
who may be thinking about it, you know, seven years. if you get 35 and no chance of parole, that's a different story than getting out in seven years. >> greg, it's ten times longer than the next harshest sentence which was given to a former fbi agent for doing the same thing. at 20 times as long as the most severe sentence ever given for any such action prior to the obama administration. >> maybe this was a different action. if you're questioning the initial sentence, that's a different argument, but the fact is, he didn't serve the prison sentence. and why did he not serve the prison sentence? because he or she is a folk hero. understand if anybody here at this table got into serious legal trouble that involved jail time, we are never going to enjoy the same vast amount of sympathy that chelsea manning gets right now from the press and from the government because she is an antiwar activist. she is a gender activist. with those two together, you are a folk hero. we would never get that kind of
2:21 pm
mercy. a lot of conservatives are going to have a hard time saying that because if you condemn manning, how do you cheer assange. that's what you haven't been hearing from a lot of conservatives because it's put them in a tight spot. >> on the heels of that, what are the democrats doing? they are berating julian assange and wikileaks saying this guy needs to be brought to justice and then president obama pardons, commutes the sentence, of someone who put julian assange on the map with wikileaks. what is president obama telling the democrats? >> i'm going to say there's a big difference. this woman pleaded guilty. she went through the military criminal justice. >> so what? no, i'm sorry. when my brother is deployed and fighting isis which defense officials have said that her release of these documents led to the rise of isis and the arab spring, while she is making all of our diplomats, intelligence officials, and troops left safe
2:22 pm
overseas, that's okay because she sorry. it's not good enough. our president is sending a signal to the rest of the world that leaks are appropriate as long as you said you are a folk hero and you're an antiwar activist and you are whatever else. the hypocrisy. honestly, the hypocrisy in all of it and what it is tending to our intelligence communities and the men and women who fight so hard for our national security is as long as you're a traitor and you have the right kind of politics it won't matter. >> in fact, ash carter, defense secretary, poses its prey >> it is blatant hypocrisy from the left because of the ones driving this anti-wikileaks, anti-russian narrative. alternatively it's perfectly okay for this individual to put out 750,000 documents, details of american operations, identit. "the new york times" noted in an article that they write about this the fact that foreign allies in various countries were helping united states, they had to remove them and put them in safety because this individual put them in harm's harm's way.
2:23 pm
it's not only blatant hypocrisy from the left and the president of the united states, president obama but it's purely political. >> if it weren't political, general petraeus would be getting a pardon which is shameful that he's getting a pass for chelsea manning and not for general petraeus, given what he did for this country and chelsea manning did. >> assange said he would come back if this happened. >> maybe so but i'm wondering why not pardon the unabomber or eric rudolph. you just let out a bomber and a traitor because you disagree with our politics. the unabomber politics are not as romantic as the f hello a end. eric rudolph is pro-life. >> i think chelsea manning was found guilty, >> another busy day on capitol hill with confirmation hearings for four more of president-elect trump's nominees. if you did not have time to watch them all, we've got you
2:24 pm

>> elizabeth warren also went after price. >> the stock was bought by a broker who is making those decisions. i wasn't making those decisions. >> this is someone who buys the stocks you want him to buy. >> not true. when i did was comply with the rules of the house in an ethical and legal and aboveboard manner. >> did you take additional actions after that date to advance your plan to help the company that you now own stock in? >> i am offended by the insinuations, senator. >> we will start with greg. speak to bernie sanders first. he was making a couple points. >> he hasn't changed. god love him. he should have been the nominee, and he's bitter. this is another boring example of politics. it's republicans and democrats.
2:30 pm
they are all going to go. it's a shooting gallery if you are a liberal. you show up and take your shots. for a republican, your inner baby nursery. you say hello, hi, that's it. >> elizabeth warren complained. she said i only got 7 minutes. my colleague got two extra minutes. she went back and forth with lamar alexander and wasted another minutes. >> that was terrific. >> we've seen people lose cabit positions because of their babysitter. tom daschle, bill richardson. there are a lot of democrats who didn't get torpedoed. i don't know if price gets torpedoed by the fact is the investment was made one day, he introduces a bill the next day, he makes money the third day. if you are following the money, you would be like, something is going on. >> and if you follow the money,
2:31 pm
there's a lot about going on on both sides of the aisle. >> the reason the democratic party is doing this is because they don't have any options for their other option is to try to exploit these various issues in people's lives like they're trying to do with his labor secretary twice as well in the hope that they'll push them out. period because they don't have the numbers to stop any of the cabinet choices for president trump. this is all they are left with. the democratic party right now, these cabinet choices are the enemy because you're talking to people that want to fundamentally change the agency that they are going to take over so they are enemy number one to the democratic party right now. >> what i want is for senator bernie sanders and elizabeth warren to answer to someone from arizona where the premiums went up over 150% and you could only have one health care provider in every single county. i want someone to ask them what it's like to pay over 150% in premiums.
2:32 pm
your dream is over. the american public rejected it. so bitter and delusional. i agree with you. i think it's grandstanding. >> another sound bite between senator sanders and congressman rice. >> we are paying by far the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs. >> i think that's the case. i would have to look at the statistics but i think there are a lot of reasons for that and if we get to the root cause of what that is, that i think we can solve it. >> one of the root causes is that every major country on larth negotiates drug prices industry. in our country, drug companies can raise their prices. they could double their prices, no law to prevent them from doing that. >> juan, this may surprise you. i agree with bernie sanders on this. medicare is not allowed to negotiate with big pharma.
2:33 pm
this is a big mistake we are making. the reasons why they put that in medicare part d years ago. let's bring some competition, bring prices down. >> i agree. i don't understand it but i think this has been overwhelming, even the other day cory booker, senator from new jersey, he voted against a bill that would allow drugs to be brought in from overseas because so many pharmaceutical companies located in new jersey. i think republicans have always said oh, yeah, america is a place of innovation and we pay a price. the medical -- the rest of the world comes here for medical care. for our seniors, drug prices are intolerably high. >> are you saying we should have drugs from other countries? >> good drugs. >> it's one of those rules where they say medicare, who can buy in mass, they have to pay what these pharmaceuticals demand. free-market is always better than the hand of government. wherever you introduce
2:34 pm
competition, prices will go down. drugs are expensive for a reaso reason. there are rare diseases, so the drug costs a lot of money because not a lot people are buying it but the cheaper drugs help pay for that. you hope that happens great >> what happens is, canadian drug companies do the same thing. we are not allowed to buy them. >> more from today's confirmation hearings. ahead, former president bush, 41, can't attend mr. trump's inauguration on friday. he wrote the president-elect a beautiful letter to explain why. we will show that to you coming up. ♪ i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment with breo. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine,

's because i do not believe climate change is a hoax. >> that is important for the president to hear. >> nikki haley went on the offensive at her confirmation hearing earlier. she's in the running for ambassador to the united nations. >> like most government agencies, we could benefit from a fresh set of eyes. i will take an outsiders look at the institution. nowhere has the un's failure been more consistent and more outrageous than its bias against our close ally, israel. russia is trying to show their muscle right now. it's what they do. we need to let them know we are not okay with what happened in ukraine and crimea and what is

white house staffers only have five hours between obama's departure and trump's arrival. so much has to be done, even changing the toothpaste, stocking the first families private pantry and of course a crew from the national archives will go through and pick up the remaining documents. it's exhausting just to read about it. >> they are going to find packs of cigarettes hidden all over the white house. in planters come outside. put them out, bury them in the ground. >> sounds delightful. >> washington times put this piece out today. president obama and the family and michelle, they are going to leave the white house worth $24 million which is amazing considering the salary has been $400,000 a year and they are taxed on it. they predict this. $200,000 speeches. i think that number is going to

divisive politics from the left under the guise of inclusiveness. my biggest bone defect is with the media, who was fawning over its great abc, good morning america today fawning over the march without any mention that pro-life groups are being excluded. cuts to the heart of a disingenuous narrative from the media about the issue of pro-life and abortion. the country is split on the issue. if you look at the heartbeat bill that was being led as controversial by the media, ohioans were split on the issue as well. i am fed up with this and i'm done with it. >> wait a second. i don't think pro-life people are being excluded. >> they were originally going. >> i think there are a lot of pro-life women were joining the march. >> that's not inclusive. not representative of all women. >> we've got to roll. that's it for us today. we will see you live from washington, d.c., on inauguration eve. you might hear about that.
