maybe with hillary's bleach bit. that's about it. tune in each night at 8:00 for the show that's the sworn enemy of lying, smugness, tucker back on monday. have a great week end. "the five" are next. >> hello, i'm >> hello. i'm we're live in new york city and this is "the five." from fire and fury to locked and loaded, president trump sending out more alarms to warn kim jong-un that if they launch an attack, his country will face dire circumstances. he followed up this afternoon with this. >> i hope that they are going to fully understand the gravity of what i said and what i said is
what i mean, so hopefully they will understand, peter, exactly what i said and the meaning of those words. those words are very, very easy to understand. >> and then he elaborated. >> and this man will not get away with what he's doing, believe me. and if he utters one threat in the form of an overt threat, which he's been uttering for years and his family has been uttering for years or if he does anything with respect to guam or anyplace else that's an important territory or an american ally, he will truly regret it and regret it fact. >> a few hours later, the president addressed the threat again from his new jersey home alongside his top advisors. >> nobody loves a peaceful solution more than president trump, that i can tell you. hopefully it will work out. this has been going on for many years. it would have been easier to solve this years ago before they were in the position that they were in. we will see what happens.
we think lots of good things chap. if anything happens to guam, there will be big, big trouble in north korea. >> all right. so i just asked greg, what are the good things that are going to happen. they're going to be good things. >> fire and fury, locked and loaded, those are chuck norris's safe words. donald trump is using our language, which not political language but our language, it's blunt, it's hard. he's negotiating. he's in a different position. and i feel like every president has -- north korea has been part of the employee orientation. it's like every time you have a president, oh, you have to go through the north korean thing. get past it. >> set it aside. >> he's doing it in a different way, because i think he's seeing a different way of doing it, i.e., getting the sanctions agreed upon by three different factions, was a plus.
and he's speaking to north korea in their survivalist language. they're bluffing. he's calling their bluff. bottom line -- we aren't going to do anything until they do something, so are they going to do something? i think we just sit and -- be calm about guam. >> and there's nothing else we can do. earlier today we talked to "the wall street journal" bureau chief in seoul. i said, what is the mood there? he said, people have lived with this for a couple of decades. they're not really worried. there are back channels, front channel. i had say this. you say that. good cop, bad cop. he was asked a question, someone said, what about when kim jong-un said this, and president trump said, "i don't any it was he that said that." until i hear him say it, i will not react. i thought that was an
interesting thing, maybe a signal to kim jong-un that there's an opening. >> trump takes this north korea situation personally. he believes that kim jong-un has disrespected trump, america, and our allies in the region and donald trump, if anything, he's big into respect. i don't think he's doing anything differently than any other u.s. commander-in-chief would do to protect our allies and our territories. he's just saying it a little differently. and you don't want to bluff the ultimate bluffer. this is trump's game. he's a real estate tycoon in manhattan. this is how they price things out. this is how they evict people. this is how they negotiate contracts. i don't think that kim knows what he's getting into. he's doing what is very smart. you are not just going to threaten san francisco or
california. you are not going to threaten qualm. -- guam. the fact that it's being protect the as if it was a state and was our core ally, draws a line in the sand. >> it's so much closer to north korea. >> it's a forward-operating base and that's where we had all the b-52s. >> are you insulting all of america? >> you go in the street and ask where guam is. they think it's dinner. >> there's a woman at the "washington post" and she did, all the questions you ever want to know about guam and she grew up there. >> i think i need to do a "watters world" in guam. i will be back in about a week. >> i do know people that would like to you go there. >> half the country. >> prearranged trip. >> i do think there's been some
successes beyond the saturday security council vote that was 15-0, because today china said that it will not get involved with north korea but it would stay neutral and that was a signal to the north koreans, again, i think the administration talking to the different players on a different path, so i think there's more diplomacy going on than meets the eye when you see the president make comments like that. >> and i think the president stepping up in that way was significant. i hope that kim listened. i also agree that the president is -- this is his game. this is how he talks. he talks big to hopefully intimidate or persuade. problem is, i don't know that kim knows that. i don't think that kim sees it that way. we talked about it last night. he's the kind of guy that you got back at him with the same
language he uses, it may escalate his actions. >> does kim want to find out? that's the calculation he has to make. >> and the way the president has talked, using the exact same language, just slightly different, slightly softened terms, but essentially saying the same thing. president obama did it. peace-loving, hippie president obama said if north korea ants, they will be annihilated. >> but an attack was not imminent. the intel shows that it's coming to a head. >> and north korea said it's coming to a head because they've given us a time and a place and i think that the perfect he's is summ surmizing this more than in the past. we're hearing today in the aftermath of this that there are diplomatic back channels and some sort of a dialogue and that's the most interesting thing and to get back to something that you said at the
beginning of the show, greg, you're absolutely right. you said that this is the part of the presidential orientation that every administration despises. north korea, unfortunately, is part of the three failures -- peace in the middle east, friendly relationship with russia and disarming a nuclear north korea. every administration tries to do the same thing with all three in slightly different ways and so far they've all failed. >> you are saying that trump cannot beat north korea, bring peace to the middle east, and cozy up to russia? cushner is headed over there. >> and four, fix healthcare. >> obama messed it up so badly -- >> and balance the budget. >> can we play a sound bite from oliver north about sanction snz >> i'm not sure. >> the problem with sanctions
is, they take too damn long. bottom line, it needs to be shut down in days, not weeks or months and certainly not in years. >> president trump said that they are considering more sanctions at the a higher level. >> sanctioning who? >> he didn't say. i would imagine more with kim because one of the things that he likes to do to keep everybody around him happy is give them gifts, lavish gifts, and if he's cut -- if you cut off his ability to do that, maybe the people in the military will get antsy and turn on him. >> i think you have to sanction and hit everybody including -- and i said this before -- north korea is bad, but so are its parents that neglected and deprived it and so you have to hit china. the easiest replex is to attribute irrationality to north korea. this guy is nuts and we make fun of this nutty, crazy character. embracing the assumption that he's irrational writes off any of the options.
none of it will work, because he will starve his people, but there's a rationality behind this bluffing. >> and it speaks to his control and authoritarian control where he uses propaganda and starvation and prison camps to keep his society in line. >> yeah. >> you look at other regimed like this and they have sort of this goal that they want a big land mass. he wants more and more land and kim jong-un doesn't operate in the same way. he wants unification of korea on his terms, so south korea becomes north korea. there are two things that make this time in our history very different. one is what you said. and we have to put pressure on china and we realize that in a way that wasn't as evident in
past administrations. >> he likes his liquor and videogames and movies. >> and dennis rodman. >> so it's about survival for him and i think the north korean economy is $20 billion and sanctions is $1 billion. so it's a bite, but not a big bite. >> you know what we haven't talked about and remaining calm is good, but there's a huge international event happening in six months and that's the winter olympics that will take place in seoul in february. >> it will be fascinating to see how the next couple of months play out. the olympics take place. you get all of these athletes from around the world that go there. those that do go. >> you cannot allow the north korean teams to participate, correct? >> you cannot allow north korea to do anything that would put the athletes behind a septer of danger. that's the bigger concern.
>> cancel the olympics. here's why. it's too much. every two years. i liked it when they were both every four years because then i looked forward to it. i get exhausted by it. and it hurts our ratings. >> that's the real reason. >> you have to appreciate it. i think christmas should be every other year, but that's just me. >> more to come. the president had words for those who say he's talking too tough on north korea. stay tuned. more ahead. this is crabfest at red lobster. with choices like the classic crab lover's dream and new favorites like dueling crab legs with dungeness and snow crab. it's happening right now right here at crabfest. red lobster. now this is seafood. ltry align probiotic.n your digestive system? for a non-stop, sweet treat goodness, hold on to your tiara kind of day. get 24/7 digestive support, with align. the #1 doctor recommended probiotic brand.

threat. so we need to be careful, measured, and planned in our rhetoric. >> president trump had this to say to her and others. >> if somebody else uttered the exact same words that i uttered, they would say, what a great statement, wonderful statement. i will tell you, we have tens of millions of people in this country that are so happy with what i'm saying because they're saying, finally we heavy a president that's sticking up for our nation and, frankly, sticking up for our friends and our allies. >> and rush limbaugh certainly supports that. >> now members of congress are worried that his blunt and provocative warning to north korea could lead to war. what does this mean? it means that wimpism has taken over the washington establishment, that wussism and wimpism and pajama-boyism has taken over. north korea is a zit on the butt
of a pig. and there's no reason to be afraid of it. w would we run around afraid of a zit on a pig? >> colorful language from rich limbaugh. if president obama had threatened north korea with fire and fury, pajama-boy would have leapt off the couch and said it's the greatest day by a commander-in-chief. >> possibly. i want to address the people on twitter i have pink eye. so stop making fun of my glasses. >> i like them. >> i get the sense that the media fears trump more than north korea and they also fear donald trump being right. it bothers them that at times they would have to go, maybe that was harsh. susan rice wrote a piece in "the new york times" in which she
described kim jong-un's language as "colorful" but trump's as "dangerous." it's an interesting thing. they have to settle down and get used to the fact that this is how he operates. and this is how he negotiates. and this is the language he uses and relax. and rush is right. you are talking about 25 people in a dark prison. that's north korea. it's a very tiny -- >> it's 180,000 people in prison camps. susan rice and james clapper and john brennan can go away. go away. they're no longer in power. their opinions are no longer required. they can go away. they're not helping. how would president obama like it if louis freeh and john as
john ashcroft were slapping out their happy tunes. >> for susan rice, who has very little credibility at this point to come out and criticize president trump for mishandling a threat that her administration dumped in his lap is ir responsible. >> everybody has a right to their opinion. >> i disagree. [laughter] >> a lot of people didn't support president obama that were clear about his opinion while he was in office. she has a right to voice hers. i have mine, right? and my opinion is that this president with the way he's escalating the rhetoric, makes me a little bit nervous. i disagree with rush. north korea is a zit on a pig that has a nuclear weapon now. we can talk about how --
>> or maybe 60 of them. >> we can talk about how we got there, right? and i think every administration leading up to this one bears responsibility for that, democrat and republican, 100%. but escalating a war of words with a person who thrives on that, i just don't know if that's the right way. i hope there's a multifaceted strategy here. i believe that some of the people that he's surrounded himself with, people like nikki haley, are proving themselves to be quite good, right, the way she navigated the security council, what we saw out of china today. >> uh-huh. >> all of that is very helpful. but when the president continues to escalate the rhetoric the way he did not only with north korea, but tossing out their cavalierly today the notion of military action against venezuela -- >> i loved that. can i tell you why?
sorry, dana. there are two things -- you hear good cop-bad cop. in this case, you have a lot of good cops and a bad cop. you have trump and pence and haley. it's a way to say to the world that we can handle north korea with one hand and do stuff on the other. >> walk and chew gum at the same time. >> it's saying that north korea is a priority, but we have other stuff to deal with. it's a psychological trick, a persuasive trick. >> closing argument, ms. perino. >> i will talk about venezuela then. if the regime in venezuela gets nervous and backs off hurting innocent people, it would not necessarily be a bad thing. i don't think for a second that the president is contemplating military action in venezuela. if they're worried, that's fine. i have that label, the neo con
label, but i was criticized so heavily by trump supporters. now i'm for that. so when you become president things look a lot different. you get the briefings. and the reason i think that he -- we'll just have to trust him. he's the president we have. the concern about rhetoric, he's the one that up have. so he does not want nuclear war. he knows his ultimate responsibility, solemn obligation, is to protect the united states of america. he will do that. he's surrounded by good people that have been dealing with crises their entire life. maybe not one just quite like this and perhaps why you have a poll that says that 82% of americans say they fear nuclear war with north korea. it's a healthy fear, as long as it doesn't get in the way of your daily life. we have to trust the president. >> and the president spoke to the leader of guam today and we have some tape for you. let's hear that. >> good morning.
it's great to speak to you. and i wanted to pay my respects and we're with you 1,000%. you are safe. we're with you 1,000%. and i wanted to tell you and say hello. >> mr. president, as the governor of guam representing the people of guam and as an american citizen, i've never felt so safe or confident with you at the helm. with all the criticism going on over there, from a guy that's being targeted, we need a president like you, so i'm so thankful and i'm glad you are holding the helm, sir. >> they will not have to leak that transcript. [laughter] >> next, we delve into another controversy. we'll tell you about that drama when "the five" returns. one wit, and i know that we have accident forgiveness. so the incredibly minor accident that i had tonight- four weeks without the car. okay, yup. good night. with accident forgiveness your rates won't go up just because of an accident. switching to allstate is worth it.

>> sammy haggar, not my choice. centennial school board in my hometown, portland, oregon, voted to change the names of three schools with "lynch" in the title, because of the concern of racial connotation. it was named for the lynch family that donated the land for the schools a century ago. here's the school board chair. >> we are doing what we believe is right for our children. we have children of color and other cultures and we want to be sure they can cross the threshold of those schools and be comfortable within their surroundings. >> so, greg, do you think it's doing the greatest service to children to not teach them to
differentiate between a verb and a noun? [laughter] >> that's -- shouldn't stop there. they should go over loretta lynch, james lynch, jane lynch. who does this satisfy? it seatisfies outrage addicts looking for a cause. it's fake outrage syndrome. it makes them feel good. i believe it's a sickness to feel strongly about something like this. portland, they're upset about words. and what is happening in portland? it's a hotbed of violence and going after people. so instead of going after the people beating up peaceful protesters, which happened last week, you are going after den -- benign words. it's sad. it's pathetic. you should not be teaching kids.
>> there's a high school in portland called benson. it was a sitcom in the '80s. or reed college. think about the people so upset about an american teenager being caned with a reed. he can should spell it with a k and a c. and there's hanging rock state park in north carolina. this is how countries fall. it's the beginning of the end. if you are out in portland and you are feeling rebellious because young people are going -- like the teens of today are going to be way more conservative than their parents, go to itunes and download everything from dustin lynch, country western singer. it's a rebellious act. >> if i was black and i went to lynch school, maybe i would think about it, like oh, my
gosh, this is upsetting, but i would be thinking, what's for desert? what are we doing at recess? these kids are in elementary school. they're not worried about the connotations of linking in the 19th century. it's crazy. my mother is a child psychologist. she had to make up for what happened to me. [laughter] >> overcompensation. >> a key to a successful child and successful adulthood is resiliency, if you can withstand drama and uncomfortable things. no one wants children to be uncomfortable anymore. no one wants people to feel anything other than perfect happiness. if you feel uncomfortable or unsafe or a thought, a negative thought, you try to protect people from negative thinking, and that's where the term snowflake comes from. it's an overused word but it's apt here because people melt at the slightest bit of
temperature. >> yet every one is unique and they melt quickly. >> tell me you are going to defend this. >> three points, i'm a proud liberal. as person of color, i'm hyped up on racial insensitivity issues. this is ridiculous. >> case closed. we don't need to hear the second. [laughter] >> number two, the outrage is also overhyped. they changed lynch view school to patrick lynch. >> the other two are -- >> they just haven't renamed them yet. >> so whatever. but the third point i would make, respectfully to my conservative friends, for all the talk about, here we are sitting around a table in new york city talking about what a school in portland, oregon, should or shouldn't do, right, it's a local issue. let them decide it. if they're getting the pushback from the community it appears they're getting, great. >> but it's legal precedent. there are cultural precedents that we can pour over to examine
what is going on in our lives and make appropriate remedies so we don't fall prey. >> and this is how the nation crumbles. it's the first that we'll hear falling, lynch. shots fired. >> jesse, be careful what you say. >> was that insensitive?

>> president obama's effort to help democrats keep the white house in november fell short, but apparently he's fired up and ready to go again to help save the democratic party. there are reports that he will re-emerge into the political scene to help democrats rebuild. dana, you worked for a president at the end of his term. >> i think everybody gets to make their own choice. and what president bush said from the beginning of his second term is, when it's over, i will not seek this life. he moved on and created the center down in dallas and he rarely speaks out on anything political. the only time he was about to is when president obama did not defend the c.i.a. interrogators, but then vice president cheney went and did that. to i think in some ways, president bush has just chosen a different path. >> he did go out on the trail, right, for candidates later on? >> yeah, but quietly, senate races and things like that. he was an unpopular president
when he left. it's not like john mccain wanted him campaigning with him. in fact, john mccain made sure that president bush didn't go to the last g.o.p. convention. >> it's interesting, because there's a difference between a past president keeping his party together, which is wholly appropriate, since we're seeing civil wars in both parties, so you have the sanders' wing, which is gaining momentum as we see single-payer on the horizon. so there's worry for establishment democrats that the sanders' wing will eclipse and cost them more elections. it's popular with a vocal minority, which is millennials and younger voters, it's not something that resonates with the critical part of the country that's still economically hurting and response to populism and centrist. if president obama comes in, you
will see the democratic party that has time to remake itself before 2018. >> you see a map that's difficult for my party, with a lot of defensive seats they have to take care of. you also see a former president, who is fairly popular right now. how do you see that dynamic playing out? >> he was their only star and they didn't go to the trouble to build a bench. there was no bench behind him. that's how sanders was able to pop in because they didn't have anybody else. so the party cruised on his charisma. and now you are seeing a glaring lack of vision and new ideas. the democratic party sounds old and stale because they have old and stale candidates. i would love to stop talking about president obama, but he's there because it's all they got. we played van halen with sammy
haggar singing lead. that's the problem. president obama is the david lee roth of the democratic party. >> hillary clinton is the gary sharone. >> nicely done! beautiful. >> obama is the guy that steals your girlfriend and tries to give you relationship advice. [laughter] what are you doing? you destroyed the party. you lost 1,000 seats in the last couple of years. it's been destroyed. great analogy. cruise on his charisma. it's exactly right. it's exactly right, gutfeld. the guy had it all. he won re-election because people thought he was a decent man and they didn't like mitt romney, but policies he enacted all failed, foreign and domestic. and now they're left holding nothing. and he will come back and be a punching bag for donald trump.
trump will love obama coming back. first hillary and then obama. >> the democratic numbers are higher than trump, but it will not be enough because the democratic party needs to articulate what it will be moving forward. >> stay right there.
