>> sean: what is it with the kittens? every time i open my mouth, i kill a kitten. we will never be the fake newsan media, always fair and balanced. have anything to say, 877-225-8587. and look who's next. do you believe, they say every time i open my mouth i kill a kitten, laura ingraham? into the hotline, they are all half in the bag. >> sean: if they are half and a bag by my show they are wasted by your show. >> laura: that's good for me. kittens involved. >> sean: every time i open my mouth i kill a kitten? ouch. >> laura: that's usually left for barbra streisand or someone like that. you are in that pantheon. >> sean: have a great show. >> laura: good to see you. welcome everybody to the "the ingraham angle," i'm
laura ingraham in washington. we have a big show on tap. anthony scaramucci is here. and my thoughts on the golden globes and candidate winfrey. but first we start with president trump showing the world with a real leader it looks like, sharing a bipartisan meeting on daca in front of the cameras. he left no doubt as to who is running the show in washington and the future of immigration. that's the focus of tonight's angle. today, president trump met with congressional leaders, republicans and democrats on that thorny issue of immigratio immigration. he did something we don't see often in washington. he let the press into film some of the discussion. look at dick durbin -- he's one of the president's most vicious critics sitting right next to the president. as i have been saying for many
years during the anti-amnesty battles of 2006, 2007, and 2014, the people have a right to see where everybody's cards are in this game of high-stakes poker for the nation. the president made sure that happened. >> president trump: i was sitting with some of our great republican senators and we all agreed on anything. perhaps you would like to say a few words? at >> we can come together and reach an agreement. i think that things will happen in other places. >> i hope this meeting can be the beginning of building trust, i know for a fact all of the republicans around the table are committed to finding a solution. >> president trump: where are you with the bill? >> we have to do it in a bipartisan fashion and we have to put our best foot forward.
>> laura: setting aside the substance of the negotiation, one thing is abundantly clear after today. that media story that they have been peddling for days and weeks and months that the president doesn't have a handle on things, he was clearly in command. he was gracious and i don't think he could have been kinder to the 22 legislators in attendance. look at the way "the washington post" headline characterized the event. that is just absolutely patheti pathetic. president trump is like a powerful political stringent. he's trying in good faith to include democrats and what to seek it for it? nothing but grief from the media. remember when president obama had his one measly round table before the care vote?
>> treat all americans the same so that they will know that geography does not dictate what kind of health care they would receive. thank you. >> let me just make this point. because were not campaigning anymore, the election is over. >> laura: that went well, the petty author michael wolff became even smaller. i am referring to his phony narrative that president trump is not mentally equipped for the job. today we saw he's sharp, he's savvy and he's really impatient for solutions for the american people. if anything, it's washington that's not able to keep up with his pace. the bureaucracy moves too slowly for trump. all that he wants to get done, it's hard to get done on how glacially the whole thing goes.
i think it's all about time that they trump hating media and political elites, why not have their own fitness for their own jobs examined. i think your abilities and fitness should be measured by your track record and your accomplishments or lack there of. think for a moment about the politicians in both parties as well, stupid policies and ideas that did zero except waste our hard-earned money or suffocate economic opportunity. look at the crime in chicago and baltimore. the homelessness, the epidemic that we are seeing up at in san francisco and los angeles. as for the press, let's not forget most of them were embarrassed by their predictions of president hillary. they are still failing their readers into viewers with the same old tropes they tried against trump in 2016. >> how can you be a race baiting xenophobic bigot -- which
donald trump is -- donald trump started talking about the muslim man. i knew immediately at that moment i could never vote for this guy. >> laura: he's saying trump is getting out of it? jeb bush couldn't win his home state. imagine elevating the serious claims of a nasty crackpot journalists, reporters spent time elevating the hopes and dreams of americans outside the sellout court or. i think trump is growing into the job well. he's accomplishing more and more good for the country then i believe most other presidents in my lifetime. now as for the actual policy
analysis of what this bipartisan gaggle may do on immigration, there were some good signs and some not so good signs. first let's talk about the positive spirit of the president reiterated his must have in any daca deal. >> president trump: a wall has to be built. cancel the lottery program, those three things are paramoun paramount. >> laura: in a perfect world we would have enough republicans and even a few democrats who would pass the act that tom cotton, senator purdue act before we took any steps towards rewarding those in the country illegally. citizens action to be bargained away for some song or a green card, we shouldn't do it. now that the concerning part of the daca roundtable. >> president trump: this should to be a bipartisan bill, a bill of love and we can do it. when that this group back with an agreement from the senate,
from the house with an agreement, i'm signing it, i will be signing it. i'm not going to say i want this or i want that, i'm signing it. >> laura: i hope the president hasn't been reading that jeb bush immigration book. remember in 2014 when he described illegal immigration as an act of love? like clockwork he tweeted today encouraged the president is seeking bipartisan solutions to our immigration challenges. i'll bet. color me concerned. while the president seems eager to do a daca deal, i would caution this is not the reason why he won. the american people elected him to protect their security and well-being first. i have five thoughts for the president and the g.o.p. focus on how immigration affects the american worker in the language that you use, even when you talk about doing something for the daca kids.
number two, trump won because his position on immigration different from everyone else's in that room. we need to keep the focus on what's good for american citizens and legal immigrants. law and order remains popular, necessary to the trump agenda. number three, lets everyone be honest -- passing daca want to be some magic elixir for americans. the g.o.p. is going to be drummed out of office if they are seeing as being more compassionate toward illegals than american citizens. number four, if we don't change our legal immigration system and fasted the melting pot will break beyond repair. assimilation, patriotic immigration, and merit must be central to any discussion. if we don't get this right, we want to be two countries, we're going to be ten countries. if republicans can't get democrats to agree on chain
migration, getting rid of it? we know they care more about illegal immigrants than the working americans. that will be good for republicans, it will be bad for the country. the u.s. went from a 9 million immigrants to 45 million immigrants coming in and just half a century. that was the largest movement of people in the history of the world. whatever they finally agree on, after today, we should all agree on this. the president is fully engaged and fully committed to the tricky and often unpleasant process of shaking up washingto washington. if he can get these entrenched elites in d.c. to secure this border and focus on the needs of the american people, that alone will be a massive victory for this president and this country. as the details of this daca plan unfold, we are going to be watching and very closely. that's the angle. let's bring in our guest,
columnist for the "washington examiner" and fox news contributor byron york. washington times opinion editor charlie hurt and elvira salazar currently the anchor of mega-tvs nightly news cast. great to see all of you. let's start with you on this. the president pleased that jeb bush today with his approach to immigration. he looked to me very in command of the room, i may not love the solution in the end but he seems to want to get to results and bring all parties to the table. >> we are very happy about that. i wrote in the beginning of this year for newsmax that trump was going to be what immigration what nixon was for china. only somebody that his ascension
anti-illegal immigration could pave the way to what we saw today what something hasn't been done in the last 30 years. not only to give some type of legality to the daca kids but take care of 11 million people. we can go into discussion, how are we going to do that? president trump showed today that he is willing to put political capital, capital that he has and political willingness to solve the problem, starting with the daca case. >> laura: charlie hurt, when i hear the president say we are going to do a daca deal, that removes the leverage. if someone knows you're going to do the deal, where's your leverage? the focus should be on the american people first. >> i'm totally concerned as well. he is democrats into negotiating
all of this and if at the end of the day they refuse to go along with it than he can beat them up about it. what i think is most interesting, for an hour donald trump opened up that meeting so the american people could see what politicians when they get behind closed doors talking about this stuff. all they talked about was daca. they must have said daca a thousand times. all the other people that are affected by illegal immigration -- none of that ever got brought up. all anybody could agree upon was daca. if republicans go along with this and do some sort of deal, it doesn't include serious enforcement. >> laura: the secretary said enforcement has to be part of the deal. i was on a plane sitting there trying to pull stuff up on youtube. i heard that, part of the deal. enforcement is a solemn obligation of this government and it can't be in the future,
it's got to be real and meaningful and trump said that the wall. >> i did not see any agreement taking place at this meeting. the section that worried a lot of immigration harder liners was this exchange between senator feinstein and the president. the classic democratic strategy which is why don't you give us everything we want first and then we'll talk about what you want. and it sound as if the president agreed with that. >> laura: you know that's not going to happen. let's play it, let's have the exchange, let's let our viewers watch and then you can comment. i'll just read it because it's quicker. the president said i have no problem, i think basically -- i think that's what dick durbin is saying. let's do a clean it's benign. daca. >> sean: >> he means daca come n
migration. >> laura: what we are missing here is we have to put this to rest. we have to finish with this daca deal so we can move on and do other things. we in the hispanic community and i represent millions of us and people that think like me we don't want to keep on talking about this immigration. we want immigration reform law that will include not necessarily citizenship but some type of legality. >> laura: i have a question for you. do you think the daca people, should they be allowed to bring in their aunts, uncles, cousins, the chain migration that spiderwebs people? >> i know where you're going, we're talking about 16-year-olds to 30-year-olds, 800,000 kids
most of them are working. the main problem is that they did not know they were breaking the law. we are americans, we are the beacon of human rights. you don't know because you're too little to understand. if you are fully assimilated. you speak english, you forgot how to speak spanish. >> laura: the jury is out on that. 2300 criminals. >> and they should be out of here. >> laura: should parents of the daca, should they be able to stay? that's 1.8 million people who will be allowed to stay here illegally, that's a big number. >> donald trump a said i'm going
to campaign on this i'm going to make it a political issue. democrats can't defend a chain migration. >> he has the campaign on this, there are 49 democrats in the senate. there are four republican senators, that have signed on to this clean daca agreement. it is cory gardner, flake, lindsey graham and lisa murkowski. >> for me to be able to save my child, i need to leave him. that's not a pleasant position to be in. >> laura: when criminals in the united states when they commit a crime, they are separated from their children. that's repercussions for violating our laws. everyone is a valedictorian and saving cats from trees and
regular workers have to suck it up. i think it's ridiculous. >> the parents do, the parents broke the law. >> laura: it's all a scam on the american people. donald trump can end the scam. we can have you guys on for an hour. there are rumors that anthony scaramucci may return to the white house? it's a small finger...a worm! like, a dagger? a tiny sword? bread...breadstick? a matchstick! a lamppost! coin slot! no? uhhh... 10 seconds. a stick! a walking stick! eiffel tower, mount kilimanjaro! (ding) time! sorry, it's a tandem bicycle. what? what?! as long as sloths are slow,
>> laura: two bigot shockers, steve bannon is out at breitbart and anthony scaramucci may be back at the white house. joining us now, i wish he was here, anthony scaramucci. happy new year. >> congratulations on your unbelievable show. >> laura: you've got to come on more. >> i'm thrilled to be here, let's make this not the last time. >> laura: let's talk about you and the white house. i'm reading these stories add reports that, you talk to the president regularly, he has an enormous amount of respect and affection for you.
there's some desire to bring you back in. the white house is being coy about it. >> that's all news to me. i addressed that on how we should show over the weekend. it's a little bit of nonsense. i'm not a presumptuous person. i don't expect to go back to the white house. i certainly set on the year i didn't take a general kelly would want to hire me back although i think he's doing a great job. i think at the end of the day, they seem to be doing a great job. i thought today's communication strategy was absolutely brilliant, my hats off to them for allowing the american people to see the president the way you does the president, and his extreme presidential nature which you saw today for 45 minutes. >> laura: don't you love how the left keep saying how he is mentally unstable? they are so desperate to try to discount his successes and accomplishments. what's funny about this is they are the ones becoming more and
more unhinged disturbed almost. >> i don't want to give them a lot of advice on your well rated show because i know they are listening. the advice i would give them is you should stop that's because you are playing right into his hands. he wants you to go off the rails. he wants you to go crazy on him every single day and night because you look so disingenuous and you look so emotionally involved in it to the point where you've lost your objectivity completely. that's part of the whole derangement syndrome. the president stoking that, describing himself as a stable genius, i thought that was terrific. i added that to my vernacular now. my point is that at the end of the day, he's doing a great job. you know it, i know he's doing a great job. i think the democrats tonight
are going back to their boardrooms or wherever they go and look at each other and he looks unbelievably presidential. >> laura: he said something interesting, let's watch. >> there is a nuance to him as well, he is a globalist by nature. he wants to be part of the world order. >> laura: it globalist by nature, part of the world order. i hear that and i think of the speech he gave not long ago at the u.n., let's look. >> president trump: both our friends and our enemies put their countries above ours. we while being fair to them must start doing the same. we will no longer surrender this country or its people to the false song of globalism. >> laura: he said he's against
this globalist approach for american sovereignty. >> i got cut off a little bit over there so let me finish it over here. what i was trying to say is there is a duality to the president. if he has a globalist streak in his personality where he wants to be part of the world order, he's going to double's in two weeks. he recognizes the international system leads to global prosperity. at the same time, superseding all of that is his america first strategy, taking care of the american worker, american business, he gave an interview with the financial times about five or six months ago where he explained that duality in his personality. i was trying to get that out over there. thank you for letting me get it out over here. he is a u.s. person first, an america person first. he does want to participate in
the global community. >> laura: he's not not an isolationist. my point is he has specifically campaigned against the philosophy of globalism. it is a philosophy that erases national borders, national cultures and national identity to a global order. when i hear global order, i hear what your freedom, watch your independence. >> its vernacular, they twisted that barbed wire. when i talk about the global order i talk about our allies, the strength of our allies, hand checking our adversaries. >> laura: that's not obama's globalism. >> not obama's globalism but going back to way kissinger-dean atkinson approach to keeping the peace. let's keep it. >> laura: you caught that college championship game last night, i did, i was there.
>> laura: last night's college football championship wasn't just a great game, before it started there was not only the presentation of the colors in the salute to the military but president trump made a point of the standing midfield for the anthem. to discuss the impact of that moment we are joined by joe theismann, the quarterback of washington redskins, super bowl victory of 1982. he's in scottsdale, arizona, and it's great to see you. such a big fan. the president walked out with those rotc members, members of the military, salute to wounded
veterans -- it was a beautiful moment. overwhelming cheers in the stadium, a few boos from misguided college students. what did you think and watching that, comparing that to the nfl and what we've seen this season with a drop-off in viewership and so forth? >> listening to you describe it i get goose bumps. it was an incredible moment in the celebration of a great nation and what we represented what it's all about. i had the opportunity to play in front of president jimmy carter. when the president is in attendance it's a different type of game. to see so many people celebrate this great flag, this great country of ours -- and the nfl has taken a hit for it. the viewership is down, there are a lot of people who have served this country a lot of people who have sacrificed and had family members sacrifice for the freedoms that we had. the flag stands for something very special, people who have
sacrificed to allow us to be who we are and have the freedoms that we have. i never agreed with some of the things that the players have done yet we do have the right to do that because that's what freedom for the flag was all about. to see the president out there at that football can, he's a huge fan -- he's a fan of sports, he's a fan of football. to see him at that game was i think very special. >> laura: i was lucky enough to get tickets to the game and that was around some amazing people. all the players and family members, a former coach at west point -- amazing people. when they show the soldiers in kandahar, iraq as well, the stadium went crazy for the soldiers and the troops.
>> that's the thing, the support of what has gone on, the opportunity to voice your opinion in a positive way about the men and women who fight for our freedom. the police officers, the first responders, the fireman. and those people who put themselves in harm's way. it's a special breed of people, they don't know what the day is going to hold in store for them. that's why i think they should be honored. it's the little ways we can do it at home. >> laura: something has to happen before the game which has an alabama fan i was beyond outraged by, so upset was when that clip emerge from the running back bo scarborough and we have a snippet from it. we had to [bleep] it but he said
blank trump when they were walking into the stadium. do you know he was benched? was a bench for the game? >> he wasn't benched for the game. it's just wrong. >> laura: you're a straightforward guy -- should he have been benched? that's what young people are seeing the day after that, one of the greatest championship games, that was one of the greatest games. all of us were there felt like we were so privileged. that clip -- if i were sabni, i would've said take a seat. if you can't hold your tongue, are you kidding me? i would have benched him. i've had a chance of meeting nick sabin and i'm surprised he didn't. >> i'm not surprised, look at a lot of different things that have happened on football teams
on different types of teams where people have been able to say and do things. it's part of what has become the norm in our society today. an expression of any type. you disrespect the office you disrespect the person, everybody is entitled to have an opinion. >> laura: that's not an opinion, that's stupidity. that's profanity and stupidity it's both. >> think about it i probably would have said i'm sorry you can't play in this game. >> laura: bo scarborough then compounded the problem by claiming in a tweet that he was talking about georgia. he said i said something i shouldn't have said about georgia, no he didn't, he said a trump you can very clearly hear it in the tape. it was an amazing game, president trump was great there, the troops were honored. all of that was great.
that moment, that was a disappointment. these guys are lucky and privileged. >> what a spectacular evening, both alabama and georgia played their heart out. i believe he was throwing it to the guy behind the guy the cottage. >> laura: okay. >> take a look at that clip again. he throws it into a space where i believe he's throwing it to the guy that's hooking behind him and all of a sudden the other guy shows up and here we are today, alabama with another national champion. >> and i had several heart attacks, georgia played a great game and i felt bad for the georgia fans. it was an amazing night. thank you so much, really appreciate it. when he bragged that he had a bigger nuclear button, the experts predicted the president was stoking war with north kore
habitable planet because of this sad man's insecurity. >> it's like somebody hasn't told him how this is reading to the rest of the world. >> his mental instability has intersected with the most dangerous issue that has faced is as a planet. >> laura: can we retire the 3d chess verbiage? i'm tired of that. maybe those experts can explain this. north korea suddenly meeting with south korea, here to react, gordon chang. with me in washington, michael fuchs, let's go right to you. predictions of doom and gloom, it's all going to end. trump is a disaster on foreign policy. suddenly kim jong un's people talking to south korea. >> the north and the south are talking. diplomacy is the only way we're going to solve this threat in
north korea. i think president trump's comments to date have exacerbated the problem and what we are seeing out of kim jong un reaching out to the south is trying to poke and prod for weakness in the alliance of south korea and the united states. he seems the errant tweets. >> laura: he's meeting with the south because of the tweets? that could be reverse psychology from trump. >> i'll take it right now. i'm more scared of his tweets. >> laura: let's go to gordon chang real quickly. >> he understands that sanctions are hurting his regime. u.n. sanctions put in place because of the trump administration, also unilateral u.s. sanctions. we see this. of kim jong un in his new year's address talked about sanctions being an exit central threats to his government.
there is anecdotal evidence of so many instances of people not getting money. this is a real indication that the underlying trump policy of cutting off money to the north korean regime is starting to work. that's one of the reasons why kim jong un wants to talk to the south koreans. he wants the south koreans to pay them cash. >> laura: closing thoughts, real quick. >> i think this is a potential opportunity for the united states. what does the trump administration do? are they able to stay in lock step coordination with ally in south korea and start diplomacy? >> laura: we will have you back for an extended discussion. i know you guys are watching the golden globes the other night -- up next, oprah? ♪ so, work is changing. ♪
we're told the robots are coming for our jobs, ♪ that the algorithms will replace us. ♪ but we are resilient, born to adapt, wired to learn. sure, change is coming, but we will find opportunity. search for greatness. search indeed. don't wait until february. walk into a jackson hewitt, day or night, and you could get up to $3200. so why wait? you could get up to $3200 with a no-fee refund advance. go to jackson hewitt today.
truly. it's a small anecdote that claimed at the funeral of former fox news chairman roger ailes -- i can tell you that is totally fabricated. it never happened. and it's really poorly written. what does parsing support even mean? after talking to others even there, trump wasn't discussed too much if at all at the funeral. but wolff didn't care. he wanted to advance his rickety anti-trump agenda, the facts be. no i didn't buy the stupid book, i borrowed someone else's. second, the golden globes, for once i wasn't in the slightest annoyed when my cable went out on sunday night.
i have one of those systems that control all the tvs, it never works. i was blissfully unaware of that #timesup and black dress decorations by women who for the most part happen to be left-wing democrats. same women who were mostly silent during harvey weinstein's ram of sexual terror. watching a bunch of self-absorbed actresses trying to one up each other with emoting and conjured up empathy isn't exactly my idea of a fun sunday night. that #timesup group announced before the show they would all be wearing black to protestant men who harass women. there wasn't much of a mention of women who harassed men as i recall. imagine the pressure to conform. not only are so many in the industry afraid to express views that may be remotely conservative, now they are
afraid to dress the way they want to address. and the color they want to wear. how is it any less demeaning and domineering for a bunch of powerful women to tell other women what to wear than it is for powerful men to do the same? answer: it's not. as per resulting in some tangible change for the farmworkers and the hospitality workers, i'll let rose mcgowan commit the actress largely responsible sum it up. she said if that's a band-aid to make yourself feel better about what you have all known about and event silent witnesses to and participants in that silence and no, i don't forgive. now washington is taking up that tedious torch of fake protest. a group of democratic lawmakers have announced that they are going to be wearing black in support of #timesup at the
state of the union. another reason not to watch. if it weren't for president trump, i wouldn't. most every moment be overshadowed by protest? and then there's oprah winfrey, i had a five hour delay coming back from the game on monday night. it was nicely written, and well delivered her talk at the golden globes. it was also purely political. are we to believe that sheet like meryl streep and they all the other actresses and so forth just had that their epiphanies about harvey weinstein, kevin spacey, and all the rest of them in hollywood? oprah has spoke compellingly about the abuse she suffered as a child -- she had the biggest mega megaphone in the media for decades. she knows both straight and men in hollywood had abused their positions of power for years. what took them so long?
here's my angle on this. since that russia collusion narrative about the president trump hasn't materialized and all of these predictions about the trump-apocalypse hasn't come through, the left is desperately scrambling to anything to hold onto, anything to give them hop hope. so it's oprah, she is their lifeline. she should throw her hat in the ring, why not? the president feels the same. >> president trump: she would be a lot of fun, i know her very well. she had donald trump before politics her last week and she had to donald trump and my family, it was very nice. i like oprah, i don't think she's going to run. >> laura: she's accomplished, fun to watch, smart. i think she will also quickly see just how different politics is from hosting a talk show. it's a different game.
america isn't the room who gave her the standing o on sunday night. if she didn't run, i predict she's going to have a lot more respect for just how hard it was for donald trump, a total outsider to politics to have run, beaten all those republicans, beaten the obama's, beaten the clintons, beaten hollywood and when it all. oprah winfrey versus who? who could she run against? matt damon, george clooney, rosie, elizabeth warren. what other parade of portables can i trot out? before we go, stay right here we before we go, stay right here we have a lot more to get
you won't see these folks at the post office. before we go, stay right here we have a lot more to get they have businesses to run. they have passions to pursue. how do they avoid trips to the post office? stamps.com mail letters, ship packages, all the services of the post office right on your computer. get a 4 week trial, plus $100 in extras including postage and a digital scale. go to stamps.com/tv and never go to the post office again. when this guy got a flat tire in the middle of the night, so he got home safe. yeah, my dad says our insurance doesn't have that. what?! you can leave worry behind when liberty stands with you™. liberty mutual insurance. >> laura: breaking news out of california, district cococococoe appointed by bill clinton has put a temporary hold, an
injunction granted in forcing the president to reinstitute the terms of the daca. the administration has to return the terms, this is judicial activism at its finest. now it shannon bream and the "fox news @ night" team are up to take it from here, miss shannon. sweet you were going to pick up on that court ruling as well. here's what else we have coming up tonight. someone was killed because of its publication, while lawmakers continue fighting for answers. speak of the attorney general and the fbi director, they won't give us straight answers. we may need the president of the united states to declassify this information. >> shannon: from the help produce the dossier as
