tv   Tucker Carlson Tonight  FOX News  June 15, 2017 5:00pm-6:01pm PDT

5:00 pm
have heard from president trump, his words of bringing people together but think about what matters, we thank you so much for being with us tonight at nationals park on this beautiful summer evening as we celebrate what's good the paradigm ♪ >> good evening everybody and welcome to tucker carlson tonight, i'm ed henry in from out of the bullpen, where broadcasting live from nationals park site of tonight's baseball game, the game is going on despite yesterday's attack on g.o.p. lawmakers, steve scalise, the wounded republican leaders said they wanted it to go forward. we will be showing you the exclusive interview with fred warmbier, the father of otto warmbier who was detained in north korea, just release in cincinnati, listen to this.
5:01 pm
>> were taking at a moment at a time to my dad time. we're going to support each other like we agreed to do and we are adjusting right now. were adjusting to a different reality. >> will bring you the rest of the interview a little later, the game is on it's very interesting, despite yesterday's assassination attempt and that's what it was on several members of the republican teen, house majority whip steve scalise remained hospitalized, alive, in critical condition after undergoing his third surgery today. his absence from tonight's game, and a sad irony. he was known as one of the speediest players on the g.o.p. squad and a secret weapon is a pinch runner. he scored four runs in seven games over the years. now for more on tonight's game, fox's peter doocy is down here behind me and you and i have been talking and texting one another, we were very moved by that first pitch.
5:02 pm
joe torre formerly of the new york yankees now representing major league baseball came out with a very special guest. >> he did and that special guest was somebody that no one here in washington had seen or heard from since yesterday's ambush in alexandria at a baseball practice and that is a capital police officer david bailey who was a surprise guest that they brought out on crutches and he walked right out to the mound with a baseball in his hand and dropped one crutch and through a first pitch that made it to home plate, it was a moment that just about anybody in here had chills watching. i know i did, something else that was very important to see with him out there, he had a big smile on his face. there was sustained applause for him, there was an effort to thank the capitol police, the
5:03 pm
first thing the p.a. announcer did was ask for a round of applause for the capital police and about 20 minutes later, he was out there throwing the ball. less than two days after he suffered a wound in a gunshot, while he was stopping what could have been a horrible, even a worse tragedy across the river what's good -- at the potomac. if that would've been the moment of the night. we are just one inning down. >> ed: at a time in the country when law enforcement is often vilified, to see the officer come out there with joe torre, this baseball hero and a see them lock arms and see that pitch and the recovery for this police officer, we still have a long way to go obviously. if there was another moment, one of our reviewers tweeted me he was moved to tears by this prayer, democrats and republicans coming together. >> there was no big announcement by the public address announcer,
5:04 pm
just to members of the republican team and the democratic team a few minutes before they were set to start all gathered and took a knee for a prayer at second base which would have been where the majority whip steve scalise would have been playing tonight. he is 5 miles away in critical condition at the hospital receiving treatment for a very serious wound to the right hip and everything internally that has been affecting him since. the last thing the republican team did before they took the field, they were all introduced. steve scalise was introduced, they put a big picture of him up on the jumbotron. everyone from the republican team that was lined up across the diamond, third base to first base turned around and they waved at him. that's another bipartisan moment here. members of the left-leaning party, emma kratz come up members of the right leading party, or hooligans are all on the right-field line, everybody
5:05 pm
stood and cheered. it was the second longest standing ovation tonight. i believe that our producer counteracted 42 seconds, that was a moment that unified everyone here. people wondered if it will get people to set aside some of the really nasty political rhetoric, something interesting maybe it's meaningful, maybe it's not. people are into this game. i've been to these games before where people aren't paying attention. every single thing that has happened tonight, people are on the edge of their seats, a lot of cheering. a lot of applause, everyone seems like they are right on top of what's happening. it's a close one, three happened to come of the democrats are up a run in the second. >> ed: republicans are up 2-0, now democrats are three have a two. i asked him who is going to win because markey said america,
5:06 pm
maybe that's the spirit of unity will live on. yesterday's shooting was committed by a fervent progressive but the media are trying to label republicans as the violent ones. today "the new york times" said there was a clear link between sarah palin political insight months, and the 2011 shooting of congresswoman gabby giffords, and democrats. one problem, that alleged link between palin and the attack on giffords was debunked years ago. the claim is basically fake news, literally fake news. charles krauthammer is a writer and columnist, he joins us live now. what do you make of "the new york times" putting out this editorial that quite frankly is embarrassing, for them years later to still be pushing this false narrative for just 24 hours after a former bernie sanders supporter tried to assassinate republican members of congress. >> it's completely egregious, it's not just that it's been
5:07 pm
debunked six years later, it was debunked within three days. i remember writing a column for days after the attack in which it was absolutely, totally obvious that the shooter was a paranoid skits are frantic. he had no idea what was going on. if what his teachers had said, he was living in his own world. at the time, this is with most egregious people don't even remember the day after the shooting, the times ran in its news section on the front page, he had labeled news analysis and introduce this false idea that jared lautner the shooter was motivated by this thing on the website that showed the bull's-eyes for 20 districts. he was not driven to the crime by a climate of hate because as everyone who knew him and
5:08 pm
testified at the time was saying, this man created his own climates. he was a classic paranoid schizophrenic. that the times should a drag this out six years later was amazing. even the correction was mealymouthed and halfhearted, no connection was proved. no connection was possible, the man was a paranoid psychotic. >> ed: it goes deeper than that because the house democratic leader nancy pelosi comes out today when we heard a peter doocy reporting how to lawmakers in both parties say maybe they're going to come together, maybe there unified. she attacks fox news, and she says republicans have been more responsible than democrats for this violent rhetoric. why within 24 hours is she trying to keep score? >> this is a reflex, i see it among democrats. it is true to some extent among
5:09 pm
republicans, this sort of vitriol in our politics is not unilateral. when you get the leadership within one day of an event like this, let's remember, she's a democrat and the shooter came out and said of those republicans or democrats on the field, this isn't a guy who went out to shoot people. this is a guy who went out to shoot republican people. if you're a democrat, he watched to have at least the decency to wait a while before leveling accusations. i do believe that the leadership were more careful, if they were less ad hominem in their arguments as i was saying earlier in a special report, if they were less apocalyptic in speaking about the other side, it's the end of the world. climate change is not -- you don't listen to me on climate
5:10 pm
change or a denier like a holocaust denier. if that language weren't like that, we would have a beginning of a de-escalation and that's what we need. >> ed: i have one minute, the shooter in this case is now dead also has facebook posts where he was discussing in his attacks. you've raised questions before about president trump whether he wants to bring people together or not, is it an opportunity for him -- he gave strong remarks yesterday about unity and a video here at the game, is this an opportunity for the president here? >> there is and i think you rose to the occasion and the remarks he made before. he's not blameless, this is not a one party thing. he was quite aggressive in the campaign, he says he's a fighter, a counter puncher. he was even aggressive against his republican colleagues, his republican opponents.
5:11 pm
i think this is a time when we can all look back and say neither side here is blameless, time to do the obvious to declare a kind of armistice on the vitriol in the apocalyptic rhetoric and it simply say we are a republic, we have the loyal opposition, let's be loyal, let's be civil on both sides. i think it can be done, i don't despair this. i think may be in an event like this, perhaps it will have to be some other event which would be tragic. perhaps that can happen, i'm sure the country would appreciate it. >> ed: you're absolutely right right. neither side is blameless. >> let me say i have been watching the game. there is a hell of a lot of stealing going on down there. i'd keep my eye on that. >> ed: who's stealing come of the democrats or republicans? who's stealing more? >> equal opportunity stealing and we have catchers who are
5:12 pm
somewhat superannuated if i can be kind. >> ed: it's been a difficult 24 hours or so, maybe we can have a little bit of liberty, we appreciate that. up ahead, will have tucker's exclusive interview with fred warmbier. charles is a big baseball fan come on a baseball fan, we'll talk about that and we'll talk about the assassination attempt in the near tragedy there that preceded it, will talk to congressman jack burkman, he was an eyewitness to yesterday's shooting. my business was built with passion... but i keep it growing by making every dollar count. that's why i have the spark cash card from capital one. with it, i earn unlimited 2% cash back on all of my purchasing. and that unlimited 2% cash back from spark means thousands of dollars each year going back into my business...
5:13 pm
which adds fuel to my bottom line. what's in your wallet? the opioid my doctor prescribed for my chronic back pain backed me up-big time. before movantik, i tried to treat it myself. spent time, money. no go. but i didn't back down. i talked to my doctor. she said: one, movantik was specifically designed for opioid-induced constipation-oic- and can help you go more often. number two? with my savings card, i can get movantik for about the same price as the other things i tried. don't take movantik if you have a bowel blockage or a history of them. movantik may cause serious side effects including symptoms of opioid withdrawal, severe stomach pain and/or diarrhea, and tears in the stomach or intestine. tell your doctor about any side effects and about medicines you take. movantik may interact with them causing side effects. don't back down from oic. talk to your doctor about movantik.
5:14 pm
remember mo-van-tik. if you can't afford your medication, astrazeneca may be able to help.
5:15 pm
5:16 pm
♪ >> were coming to your life from nationals park where republicans and democrats are uniting to play in the annual congressional baseball game, obviously a much different atmosphere right now because of what happened yesterday will get into that in a moment. right now, american citizen otto warmbier returned to the u.s. two nights ago but in extremely poor health. in a moment, you're going to see tucker's exclusive interview with his father, but first today, a doctor at the university of cincinnati medical center described his dire condition. >> he shows no signs of understanding language, responded to verbal commands or awareness of his surroundings. this study showed extensive loss of brain tissue in all regions of the brain. >> ed: tucker sat down
5:17 pm
yesterday with fred warmbier, otto's father for an exclusive interview, take a look. >> thanks for having us in your house. tell us about being reunited with otto last night. >> okay, last night, being able to see him for the first time in i bet it's 18 months, it was fantastic. i was not in great shape and he's been through a real tough time, and it's great to have him with us and i'm very proud of him. >> tucker: do you know what happened to them in north korea? >> i don't. watching his confession and seeing the things that we've seen in north korea none of which was true and then hearing what i think they said with him apparently the day after he was sentenced, he went into a coma
5:18 pm
for whatever -- for some reason. i don't have any particulars. i wouldn't trust that. listen, tucker, he has been terrorized and brutalized for 18 months by a pariah regime in north korea. we're thrilled to have him home. he's with his family, his mom is with him right now and i'll be with him later on today. >> tucker: has the government helped you along the way? >> i hesitate -- they have. i have to thank joe yuan. he got involved i don't know when, a month or two ago, contacted us. and said he was going to work for us. and his mission was to bring otto home. >> tucker: who is he? >> he's an ambassador in the state department, i believe he took over for ambassador king,
5:19 pm
very helpful for cindy and i and we are really thankful for him. we are also thankful for rex to listen and president trump. they wanted him home and i believe they made this happen. we are thankful for that. >> tucker: you said once this process is over, you hope to get back to being a family and living a conventional life. what do you think the lessons of this are? why does this happen? >> being in the wrong place -- the lesson of autos captivity in north korea -- that's going to be for others to decide. the warmbier's have been living with this situation for 18 months. if there is no meaning, this is a rogue pariah regime. they are terrorist, they're brutal, there is no to anything
5:20 pm
here. they have crossed the line with my son and so, it would be very different to look for a lesson here. amongst this insanity. i'm not looking for a lesson. i want to support otto. i want to support my other children, my community, i'm proud of the way everyone has handled this and i'm so grateful that he's with us, he's with people who love him now. that means a lot to us. >> tucker: has your family holding up? >> we are doing okay. i worry about cindy a little bit, i think she worries about me. we are taking it a moment at the time, a day at a time and we're going to support each other like we agreed to do, and were adjusting right now, we are
5:21 pm
adjusting to a different reality. and it was one that i didn't know about. we found out about this tuesday night a week ago. via a phone call from joe yuan. then cindy and i felt shocked we have not felt in a long time and we're still going through that. but otto is with us. that is the important thing here, he is an amazing kid. we're fortunate that we live in an amazing community and people that support us in love and care for us. >> tucker: you found out on tuesday out of the blue? >> there were some meetings between the state department in north korea, some diplomatic meetings in other countries. and quite honestly they wanted to know about otto. there was nothing forthcoming
5:22 pm
and i'm sure it was not going to move forward unless they talked about otto. i think our government forced north korea's hand and made them admit his situation. >> tucker: there are other americans being held in north korea, at least three, may be more. do you have advice for their families? >> no. no, i would not -- i can't recommend any -- i don't know what to say. i wouldn't know what to say to them. they can use us as an example and they can make their own decisions. we tried to do the right thing and here we are today. i don't know what the answers are. i've been told not precedented. his situation, his treatment by the north koreans is unprecedented spread i don't have advice for anybody. >> tucker: thank you, fred.
5:23 pm
>> ed: really good stuff from tucker there, i was moved as well when fred showed up at the news conference with a suit jacket that otto war back in north korea when he had to deal with that kangaroo courts. he got a very emotional, when he talked about wearing his sons and suit jackets. in the interview, tucker and fred continued the conversation in his childhood bedroom where it got emotional as well. >> tucker: this is what you found in otto's bag? >> these are his belongings, he had a duffel bag and then his bookbag, there was a pouch here that some things were in. his passport, this was his calculator he was going to be doing a finance class there. this is his crazy shirt and the ties, it looked like he was packing for a three month trip. >> tucker: he was in china and he just took a couple day -- >> he took a young pioneers and
5:24 pm
tour with a group of young people, he was over there with them. these are the clothes that he took, they were packed up. they were mostly when we took them out, they've been in the back for a long time. this is typical of otto, he has a lot of cool stuff to wear and some meat she was and of course he had running shoes, he loved to run. he's an excellent shape. there is his wallet and i guess he had some money. that's what they sent him home with. >> tucker: looks like a straight arrow kid from the spread of >> it's pretty straightforward. but from the thrift store. he looked good in them. >> tucker: you going over to see them quick mark >> as soon as were finished, i'm good to see him, and were going

5:26 pm
something much more important than this game. an update on the health of congressman's police at the hospital, he's just put up, president trump sent this message to the wooded congressman mere moments ago. >> president trump: i want to take the moment to send our thoughts and prayers to congressman steve scalise and his entire family. he is our friend, he's a patriot, and he's a true fighte fighter. i'm ryan and i quit smoking with chantix.
5:27 pm
i tried to quit cold turkey. i tried to quit with the patch; that didn't work. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. for me, chantix worked. it reduced my urge to smoke. compared to the nicotine patch, chantix helped significantly more people quit smoking. when you try to quit smoking, with or without chantix, you may have nicotine withdrawal symptoms. some people had changes in behavior or thinking, aggression, hostility, agitation, depressed mood or suicidal thoughts or actions with chantix. serious side effects may include seizures, new or worse heart or blood vessel problems, sleepwalking or allergic and skin reactions which can be life-threatening. stop chantix and get help right away if you have any of these. tell your healthcare provider if you've had depression or other mental health problems. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery.
5:28 pm
the most common side effect is nausea. i'm so proud to be a non-smoker. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. many insurance plans cover chantix for a low or $0 copay. tech: when you schedule with safelite autoglass, you get a text when we're on our way. you can see exactly when we'll arrive. i'm micah with safelite. customer: thanks for coming, it's right over here. tech: giving you a few more minutes for what matters most. take care. kids singing: safelite® repair, safelite® replace.

5:30 pm
this bill and welcome back to nationals park, the congressional's baseball game has been going on for an hour, taking on a special significance this year because of the of steve scalise klepper and up date on the score, peter doocy joining us again. i notice chris murphy democrat from connecticut is up to bat. when i was a younger reporter like yourself covering this game for local newspaper, there were no senators and again because we had people like strom thurmond, he was 90 years old. he couldn't play in the congressional baseball game, it was all house members. now there's a younger crop and they have some senators. peter? >> sorry, i missed the back end of your question, i think it was
5:31 pm
about lawmakers who are playing tonight, they get some of the biggest applause of anybody playing. they're not just allowed to play because they are senators, these guys can really, really play, they all have a lot of pop in their the katella terms of their baseball lingo, all have their cut off man, they're laying out at shortstop, just because you're a senator and you want to play it doesn't seem like it would let you one. >> ed: right now the democrats are four-2. both sides take a lot of pride in this, they were the stirrups, they wear the uniform whether it's the yankees are the mets, they even get her on the mound mound, it's like their heyday. if they want their lost youth.
5:32 pm
>> while they are all a plan, we are less than two days removed from the tragedy in alexandria, trent kelley the third baseman for the republicans tag somebody out, to get one of the democrats out who had been in a pickle, a guy who was caught between second and third base, he was by all accounts the closest person to the 66-year-old gunman yesterday. his morning started yesterday, he was so close to someone who will want to do because so much pain and harm to republican lawmakers the democrats are sitting on the left-field side in the republic after sitting on the right field side. it's been talk a little bit about the charity come up much people on social media have been asking how they can contribute as well. they noted on the top of the hour, a lot more money has poured in it for these charitie
5:33 pm
charities. sadly because of what happened yesterday, on the other hand it's almost a silver lining that people are coming together and they're giving a lot more money. >> people can go to the website, there's a congressional baseball website, congressional i just tried to check it out to see if there had been an update about the fundraising total, but the website seems to have crashed. if you want to talk about a lot of people across the country who may be interested in helping out these charities including this year for the first time the capital police memorial fund. it seems like there may be a lot of people already trying to do that. it's not just individuals. corporations stepped up in a big way between yesterday and the start of today's game, donating over a million dollars for the game even started, they goes to four different charities all benefiting mostly people in the washington, d.c., area.
5:34 pm
>> ed: as you're talking all caps of excitement breaking out. i saw one of the democrats slide in face first into home, you don't normally see that on capitol hill. the democrats having a rally here. they are up 7-2, what is going on? you getting any insight, what can the republicans do, is there any secret weapon in the bullpen, they have to do something. >> i think of the democrats are able to win by sliding into home plate, we might start to see some of that on capitol hill. they don't control either house of congress but somebody can slide in towards kevin mccarthy's desk on the floor headfirst just to get his attention at least, i'm not sure. the capital is only a couple of blocks away, it's not so far-fetched. >> ed: joe donnelly, the senator from indiana, a democrat is up to the plate now. it's been a lot of excitement early on, not just on the field, before the game started, very
5:35 pm
moving with the first pitch. that's prayer around a second base as we get into the top of the fourth inning of the game, what happened is downright remarkable. >> these lawmakers to put in a lot of effort in this game and practicing and getting ready, they did all gather democrats and republicans in a prayer circle at second base which is where the majority whip steve scalise played in at least seven games. he's one of the stars for the republican team. everyone here is thinking of him, they put his picture up on the jumbotron, he got a 42 seconds standing ovation. the republicans were all standing on the field waiting wt that photo, he is 5 miles away. we did get an update from the hospital a few minutes ago. they say that he is doing better than last night. they do still anticipate he is going to be in the hospital for a while longer.
5:36 pm
not a whole lot of detail but that is the update tonight. >> ed: some good news there, i came out of the bullpen, for tucker carlson. you are our utility player. as we get back to some updates but also some serious news as were happy to hear that statement from the hospital that his neck surgery, the latest surgery has been completed. a long way still to go. president trump in the business of the nation is going forward, he lashed out at the media and hillary clinton as new leaks report he is under investigation for potential obstruction of justice. we'll talk the whole thing over with byron york. more live coverage of tonight's professional baseball game, thea big crowd here, but 25,000 here, we're going to get you all
5:37 pm
the highlights. tom tom rooney a republican from florida up to bat dear predictable, there's no other way to say this. it's over. i've found a permanent escape from monotony. together, we are perfectly balanced. our senses awake. our hearts racing as one. i know this is sudden, but they say...if you love something set it free. see you around, giulia

5:41 pm
>> ed: we are here live at nationals park where the congressional baseball game is under play, democrats leading 7-2. trent kelley the republican for mississippi's up the bat. the business of the nation goes forward, president trump tweeting lashing out at the hillary clinton in the media in the wake of last night's report, as a special counsel robert mueller is investigating him for obstruction of justice. the president tweeted twice at hillary clinton's family democrats dealings with russia are not looked at but my nondealings arc with are?
5:42 pm
they talk about obstruction, that from the present day, does the president have a point or should he move on? >> both are true, team clinton did do all of those thing, they did it smack those telephones with a hammer, bill clinton did meet with loretta lynch and the attorney general, all of that stuff really did happen and he had to should move on as well. those are not cases that are going to be relevant either to the russia case or to the obstruction of justice case or anything that's going on right now. it kind of amounts to what about his him from the president on this? question. >> ed: the president had another leak dropped on him but "the washington post," this one dropped on him, robert mueller looking at obstruction of justice charges, and others in a report breaking tonight for the website saying robert mueller
5:43 pm
this special counsel is also investigating the business dealings of jared kushner, a top white house aide and that's son-in-law of the president. what do you make about this drumbeat of leaks that has simply not stopped? >> we were told when he got up and running these leaks would stop because he'd run such a tight ship. maybe not really up and running yet but the leaks haven't stopped. i think the biggest thing it shows is the indisputable truth about washington investigations. they do not contract, they do not shrink, they expand. they almost always expand. the question here is what is not under his purview right now? he can look into a lot of things, he seems to be casting a pretty wide net. >> real quickly we got about a minute, i want to be fair to jared kushner, his attorney is put out a statement tonight saying in part we do not what did mike know what this report
5:44 pm
is referring to, it will be standard practice for the council to examine financial records looking for anything related to russia. isn't that also true for robert mueller looking at potential obstruction of justice? once he was fired to that was good to be looked at. it doesn't mean obstruction was committed to. >> the democratic theory if you will is that trump and trump company had some sort of financial interest in all of this, they wanted to kill me, they wanted him to stay away from their dealings with russia russia, we don't know what mueller is thinking right now. we do have indications that he is going to be looking at a lot of stuff like financial transactions from people around trump. >> ed: byron york we appreciate you joining us tonight. we know teddy roosevelt has won the race and presidents, the character representing teddy
5:45 pm
roosevelt won, he typically does not win, up next a big night for tucker as well. he's going to join us and he sat down with oliver stone to talk about his four hour documentary with russian president vladimir putin. it's controversial and that interview is next

5:50 pm
>> ed: that's the one and only oliver stone, his latest flick of the put in interviews four hour documentary airing on showtime. if tucker sat down to ask him about washington's war on president trump and a lot more. do you spend 20 hours interviewing vladimir putin, pulls in the last year have shown a growing sense among americans that russia is our chief enemy, -- >> it comes becomes of media pressure and the amount of interviews given by the government calling them the number one existential threat. >> tucker: what's the motive? why would the press -- you're saying the american press is creating antagonism or doesn't naturally exist. >> it's the american government
5:51 pm
