around and watch you destroy it. get on the stick here or i am so, so out of here. >> i'll have liftoff. ♪ rocket man hello, everyone. i'm kimberly guilfoyle along with bob beckel, dana purina, eric bowling and jesse watters. it's 5:00 in new york city, and this is "the five." it's happened again. president obama's approval number has just hit a new record low. according to a new fox poll only 38% of americans approve of his performance, and it looks like the country is ready for a new president and republicans are looking for an answer in 2016. the annual cpac convention kicked off near washington, d.c., and big names took the podium to try to re-energize the gop. >> you want to lose elections, stand for nothing. look at the last four congressional elections, '06,
'08 and '10 and oar 12. three of the four we followed that strategy, '06 and '12 we put our head down and we got walloped. when you don't stand for principle democrats celebrate. >> because their policies fail, they resort to what the left always resorts to, dividing people against each other. more than any other administration in modern american history they go to americans who are struggling and they tell them the reason why you're worse off is because someone is doing too well. this disunity they have created in our country is unacceptable, and it is holding us back from that american century. >> we don't get to govern if we don't win, and it's not only bad when we don't get to govern because we don't get to mold and change our society. what's worse is they do, and they are doing it to us right now, so, please, let us come out here and resolve not only to stand for our principles, but let's come out of this conference resolved to win
elections again. that's what i intend to do for the next year, and i hope you'll join me. thank you very much. >> a good speaker, give him that. so a lot of energy. perhaps revitalized, reinvigorated because of the fact that you've got this new fox news poll showing 38%. not a good number for the president. i mean, i don't think anybody at this table is going to disagree. approval rating, 38, disapproval 54. there's really no way, i don't think, that you can spin that. i don't know. what do you think, eric? >> i think, first of all, that is like, i don't know, woodstock for a guy like me, would have loved to have been then, christie, palin, bannan, unbelievable, for a conservative wish i was there. however, president obama's approval rating hits a new all-time low as cpac kicks off and then trump and bobby jindal use the opportunity to say, guess what, jimmy carter, we apologize to you. all those years we've been calling you the worst president. we're not going to do that
anymore and hand that honor to president obama. it was -- look. this is the time of year when conservatives kind of get a feel for where they are headed, where the party is headed hover the next few years. remember, rand paul won the straw poll last year so these speeches are going to be very important and he'll speak tomorrow, see how he does, but -- >> time flies. >> last quick thought, rumors or whispers this chris christie was going to get booed at cpac when he took the podium today. turns out he got a standing ovation. so that kind of tells you maybe the conservative movement is kind of looking for that one guy that can -- >> i think, you know, that's good, that perhaps anybody thought they thought they would boo, dana, decided not to. >> i think some pent-up media treatment of chris christie, and some people think it was unfair. i think the pre-speech spin for christie was very good. i think -- i didn't watch the speeches because i was traveling
and i watched all the people's commentary for all the speeches when it came through, rubio, cruz, paul ryan this morning, and i think that this is -- it's a red meat kind of day. people love it, eric, even though you're not a red meat eater but we're working on that and then you can go to cpac. that's what it's going to be. >> all right. >> i think i've just hit upon what i needed. >> bob, before i let jesse pounce on you, what do you have to say for yourself, gentleman, to my left? >> this is my favorite time of year when cpac meets because it just shows the american people how far near the edge of the cliff they are. another couple of days they will drive over it. eric wants to be there because it's his wood stock market. i was at woodstock, and i can tell you something, nobody would -- we wouldn't have gotten 16% of the vote nationwide coming out of woodstock. >> and you're still taking antibiotics from it. anyway. >> i don't need to get into that. the point is you look at this poll. yeah, obama's not popular, but
he's not running again. got to have somebody to be up against him, right, and who do they not invite to this thing? don't invite the highest elected republican in the country, boehner. they refuse to invite him, don't invite jeb bush the most ele electable of all the candidates. what do they do, all deliver their white ring spew. they are so far away from where elections are run, keep it going. wish they would run it for three months. i'd be happy for this. >> if you're at cpac and you're a conservative you really have to be careful because there are a lot of liberal plants. there's libera they are scurrying around trying to find anything racist, anything they can plaster all over the television. >> so you can ambush them with the video. >> i don't ambush. i confront people and ask gentle questions. watch what you say because they will make a huge deal out of that and back to the poll, bob. the president has gotten his approval rating down five points since the o'reilly super bowl interview. any coincidence there?
i don't know. i think there might be some connection. >> oh, really. >> wow. >> job security, job security. >> in all seriousness, one of the big reasons it's dropping, it looks like it's foreign policy and people think the country's image is really down. 60% of the country thinks we're in a weak position internationally, and i think a lot has to do with ukraine. people don't digest -- >> five years they are just realizing now that we're in a weak position internationally. >> i disagree. >> they don't digest and mubarak and iran. they understand cold war. they understand putin, macho, cold war, two big guys coming together and obama looks weak because he's not responding, they get that. >> wow, you look really tall. >> see that camera shot. i was thinking the same thing. used to the cute little book ends. >> wow. >> who did that haircut for you, man? look like somebody put a bowl over. >> i disagree with jesse on the reason for the poll dropping. it's mainly because of obamacare and second because of the economy, maybe those two
combined and ukraine is like the straw that broke the camel's back, but i don't think the president's poll numbers have gone down because of just that in particular. just from my point of view, just when you think your president's poll numbers can't get any lower, they do. but i think that president obama is about to hit a bottom with his -- because i think that there's about 33% in the country, at least, that will support him no matter what, unless there's some major crisis. >> i think you're right. >> that turns them away. >> given plus or minus 3 or 4 margin of error. >> happy with a 38. >> i would have been happy with a 38. >> how low can we go? >> that's the base of the democratic party. >> don't forget, we're talking about a guy that could walk on water for the first two, three years of his presidency, remember that? >> you know what's so weird, just tuesday, whatever, i was in the o'reilly green room and there's your guy. well, he's not our guy. progressives don't like him. like he's not doing enough for them, so there is the 33% perhaps that is happy that no matter what obama does they will
see it in a way favorable to him because they believe in his core principles and ideology. i want to turn this around for a sec because i wanted to ask you something about cpac, party unification. talked a lot about that on this show. here's an opportunity going into cpac to show a united front. bring up a point, bob, they didn't invite jeb bush, john boehner, the speaker, wasn't there. do you think that was a mistake? is that a good choice, message to send to the country? >> wow. >> i've got a great answer on that after him. >> remember, they didn't invite chris christie last year, right, so he comes back this year and gets a standing ovation. really what cpac does is who is on the spotlight right now. who are they looking at, who are they focusing on, and don't forget. some of the satellite speakers are really, really important, ben carson, sarah palin. these people -- dave bosse. >> really. >> they are -- mark levin. >> how about donald trump? >> these people -- >> oh, okay. >> donald trump, too. >> he may still run.
>> here's my point though, that the conservative movement is -- it's alive. it's kicking. we're covering it. everyone is talking about it. >> alive and kick iing. >> because christie was beat up by the liberal media, the reason he got a standing ovation, that's why they brought him in there to spite the liberal media. >> that's all right. >> for the invitation, i think if you look at one of the people that -- i don't think he got a standing ovation, doesn't matter, got a good reception was mitch mcconnell of the senate. 2014 is so much more important than 2016. the house is probably solid for the republicans, but what matters for the future of the country, if you think this is the most important election cycle of your life, then the senate, winning back the nat is the most important thing, and mitch mcconnell, that's why he was there this morning. >> the focus should be there. great point. >> i think christie is getting a little bit of a raw deal. he came out with the speech, a little soft and turned it on and people gave him a huge round of applause. i know he booted the rnc speech
and the sandy thing, but i think if he gets out in iowa in the diners and starts pressing the flesh and shaking hands, he's going to resonate with the regular folks. he's a prosecutor. he can rip people's throats out in a debate, will rip hillary's throat out and can raise a lot of dough. plugged into the bush money machine and romney money machine. got to break bread with conservative talk radio guys. i think he's a still long way away from being written off. >> most republicans that caucus in iowa is right-to-lifers and evangelicals. >> he made a point about being pro-life today. >> i'm trying, hello. all right. we've been dancing around it. let's sashe straight in. trump? >> we have a president that just today came out with his lowest job approval rating, 38%, and -- and -- you know, i'm so torn, because actually in a certain
way i'd love to see him do a great job. i'd love to see him put the country back. i'd like to see him bring the country back, but we all know it's not going to happen. we're getting into jimmy carter territory. >> a lot of people agree with that, bob. >> what -- what is this guy doing at a political convention? i mean, donald, build buildings okay, i'll give you that, set a new style on hair, but you don't know politics, man. get out. you're not going to run. you know you're not going to run. you want the attention to be up there. why are you there? bugs bunny up there. >> by the way, bob, sound a little jealous. >> i'm jealous of his money. >> people like to hear trump speak. >> i know more about politics in this little finger. >> the guy who is supposed to know the most about politics and the most admired is barack obama. >> 38% approval rating. knowing a lot about politics doesn't mean, a, you're going to facilitate change going forward, b, going to be popular going forward. donald trump is a popular
conservative right now. >> only -- only -- if barack obama ran again, any republican would beat him except for this guy. >> let me tell you something. you know, you can dismiss him all you want, but he has a message that resonates. he was gracious and said, hey, he's my president, i wish he was doing things that would turn around the country and he's a realist and said we've given him ample opportunity to do something, to head the country in the right direction with the economy and jobs, international, foreign affairs, any of this and it hasn't. >> what about people that live in new york city that you kiss this guy's butt all the time? >> bought an apartment in the trump building before and it really did well. >> to kimberly's point, why he connects well with people. he's a blue collar guy. he may have all this money, he connects to blue collar democrats. he talks trade. he's tough on china. he's tough on a strong dollar, and he makes a lot of sense. >> you agree with him about china. >> he handles the press masterfully. he dismisses these guys. has them eating out of his hand.
the conservative base respects that. >> would you want this guy to run for the president of the united states, seriously? >> he has ran. >> he never got in. gets out real fast. the guy is -- he's a nice guy, but it's a joke when it comes to politics. >> you had to bring that up, that's fine. >> we spend entirely too much time as conservatives, republicans or even on this show talking about 2016. when with a really matters for the direction of the country is the election that happens six months from now. >> can i add that. 29 republican governors in america right now and keeping 29 or more. >> yeah. >> it's been great and b really important going forward. >> i think on the governor -- i think the governors are in trouble, and that's one of the reasons that chris christie was there is because 2014 matters a lot for the governors, the head of the republican governor association and raised a lot of money in january and february so the bridge problem didn't taint him that way. >> right. >> so he's got some crawling back to do. 2014 is so much more important.
>> should win the senate back this year but once again republicans will figure out how to grab defeekt -- >> we spend all our time talking about 2016. >> talking about 2014. we're going to stay on that because dana is right. don't bury the lead. it's all about 2014. >> why do you keep talking about obama? >> because he is the lead. >> the fastest seven. liberal lunacy edition. harry reid essentially calls his own constituents liars, and the chair of the dnc called what happened at the irs hearing yesterday like russia invading ukraine, and nutting professors at rutgers call on the university to cancel condoleezza rice as a speaker, and you're going to hear from one of them. captain obvious: i'm in a hotel.

the fastest seven is back, three engaging stories and seven energetic minutes and today the liberal loon edition. first up, crazy harry reid who has no shame, no shame, using the senate floor to play poll tib. may want to consider this approach. remember when he claimed all obamacare horror stories were fabricated by the right. >> there's plenty of horror stories being told. all of them are untrue, but they are being told all over america, but in those tales turned out to be just that, tales. stories made up from whole cloth, lies, distorted by the republicans to grab headlines or make political advertisements. >> lies, huh? well, guess what, senator? union workers on the vegas strip, you know the las vegas nevada strip, your state are ready to go on strike saying obamacare costs are killing them. hey, harry, it's happening in vegas, but it's not staying in vegas. k.g., can you believe his own
state, union workers are pushing back on obamacare? >> because it's that bad. good for them. i hope they get vocal and do something about it because they seem to be the only people that he wants to listen to, so there you go. it's -- it's coming home to roost for them because they shouldn't have support it had to begin with. >> mr. beckel, harry reid on the senate floor said all these horror stories are made up by republicans. >> first of all, you said something that was really shocking to me that there's politics on the senate floor, my goodness. i didn't know that. i wouldn't call this a horror story. i would call this a union with very good health care benefit and now they have to pay a lot more for it. of course they don't like it on would like their old plan back. they don't seem to recognize health care costs will go up anywhere with or without obamacare. they get free health care. >> you don't want to address harry reid saying all the stories are made up? >> i don't think it's a horror story. it's their health care and they want to keep it and they can't. that's not a horror story to me. a horror story is the crap you
make up about some old lady who can't get an operation on her gall badder? >> what. >> a critical thing is what people are reading in their local papers because that's where you see the granular anecdotes of people having serious problems. in addition to that i think that he's about to see some horror stories come from doctors. steven hayes of "the weekly standard" has a long feature piece about the new codes that are required for -- for doctors to put in for anything that they -- if you walk in with a jelly fish sting there's a specific code for that. it's adding thousands of dollars to the compliance cost for doctors. they are confused by it, and the administration won't work with them to try to extend the deadline to try to figure it out. >> terrible. >> so it's not just the consumer, it's now about to be the doctors as well. >> jesse, talk a little bit about union workers in nevada pushing back on obamacare, pretty rattling? >> pretty ironic, and the fact is that when harry reid says, you know, obama's lie of the
year, that, you know, if you like your health care plan, you can keep it, you know what he said about that, he said it was true, okay, and then last year, remember he said romney hadn't paid ten years of taxes. >> remember that? >> fact checkers called that a lie so he likes to tell a few whoppers himself, but what he's doing is using the koch brothers is the new boogie man. that's what the left wants to do. >> well, they are. >> want to put them with big oil and bush and fox news and rush. >> the next liberal loon to make the fast f-seven dnc chairwoman debbie wasserman schultz. are you feeling okay, something must be wrong, because we can't imagine where in the world you came up with this leap. >> in the last couple of weeks in which we have been on both sides of the aisle, standing up for the rights of the oppressed trying to make sure that in venezuela that -- that dictators there aren't shutting down the opposition, the same thing in
the ukraine, it -- at the same time you have a chairman of the government oversight committee literally electronically cutting off the mike of the opposition to prevent him from having any say or participation in a hearing. >> so really, darrell issa killing a mike at a committee meeting is the same as killing people and -- >> i'm curious what the steps the administration is taking on venezuela are because that is a story that is actually unfortunately put on the back pages of the newspaper instead of the front. i do think yesterday, however, yesterday's hearing was very important about lois lerner and the irs. americans deserve to know before. it's important to have a hearing, but because of what happened and losing control for or whatever it was. whatever darrell issa decided to do, what have we talked about all day long instead of lois lerner pleading the fifth, talked about this controversy between issa and cummings which
was absolutely unforced error. >> go ahead. i'm a little confused on something because the oliver stone praising venezuela and sean penn, hailing that government and all of a sudden the left is using it against the right. i don't think they are on the same page. >> you're doing what i usually do, what about your man darrell issa? >> here's the subject with that. darrell issa actually gave cummings a chance to ask a question. >> no, he didn't. >> during the hearing. >> he didn't have a question so he went to ujournal and then all of a sudden comes out, all hell breaks loose. >> two things happened, i've never seen a chairman break off a committee meeting like that and he broke the rules, and he -- he stood up like a little cry baby he s.issa is one of the worst chairman. >> will you stop for two seconds and jesse, stop, please. dana is right. someone on right saying it's coming, look it's issa and dana is 100% right that it was lois lerner who said i'm pleading the
fifth so i don't incriminate myself. >> okay, your little baby boy. >> she was never going to answer the questions, never going to answer any of the questions the american people have because she's hiding and she's ducking because she knows that she's guilty, but it's an abomination. there's no justice here and it's appalling. >> you think that's the reason issa becomes a cry baby about that. >> i didn't say anything about issa. >> almost indicted cry baby. >> the final liberal loon, academia, all the liberal professors who claim opposing views, how do you explain this? rutgers invited condoleezza rice to make xhepsment remarks. unanimously approved by the rutgers board of directors. liberal academia stepped in and now the faculty wants rutgers to pull the appearance on the rice appearance. all the liberal academia. >> i think it's a big mistake on their part, even though the student newspaper came out in favor of what the faculty did. condoleezza rice has a lot to offer, may not agree with her,
but any graduation -- when they say they don't want politics at graduation speeches, give me a break. >> every one is political. >> may not agree with her but the idea of cutting her off and not having her there. >> a former professor, a learned woman. >> i was agreeing. >> i agree. >> don't with v to raise your voice. >> i agree. it pisses me off. she's a woman, an accomplished woman, woman of color minority. if the right did this you can't even imagine but they are getting away it and shameful. only so lucky to have condoleezza rice come speak. >> she's a current professor at stanford. her classes are the most popular at the university, and in addition she's not going to give a political speech at a commencement address. she will talk about her life story which she wrote a book about how her mom and dad helped her through education achieve amazing life goals, not just in politics, but in business as well as she's a concert pianist. >> and a great golfer. >> lastly, snooki, was paid $32,000 to speak at rutgers. >> you're kidding me.
[ male announcer ] help brazil reduce its overall reliance on foreign imports with the launch of theountry's largest petrochemical operation. ♪ when emerson takes up the challenge, "it's never been done before" simply becomes consider it solved. emerson. ♪ new development on the crisis in ukraine. today lawmakers in the embattled region of crimea unanimously voted to hold a reverand rum to secede and join russia. in ten days the citizens of crimea will vote on that. here at home president obama issued an executive office to issue sanctions for violating the sovereignty of ukraine and delivered a statement at the white house earlier. >> these decisions continue our efforts to impose a cost on russia and those responsible for this situation in crimea.
this violation of international law continues, the resolve will be the united states and our allies and the international community will remain firm. >> and today in ukraine the interim prime minister spoke and said this. >> what is up with the global security? are we going crazy? is it acceptable that in the 21st century with no legal ground, with no reason one country, which possess a nuclear weapon, just decides in a snapshot to invade another. >> let's bring in shep smith who is on the ground in kiev for reaction to the day's developments. can you give us your take on things, shep, and then we'll each get one question. >> i thought it was interesting that this parliament down in crimea voted to -- to go over and join russia. they don't have the constitutional authority to do that, and we later -- and now there's going tonight vote, but we later found out from one of
the members of the parliament there that they were surrounded by russian troops at the time and really didn't have much of a choice, so anybody who thinks that vladimir putin is not pulling all these strings is not paying attention to the facts. >> all right. we'll start with jesse here, shep. >> shepherd, great job out there. quick question for you. vladimir putin likes to say he's going in there to try to protect the interests of the people that are aligned with russia. when you are talking to people on the street, have you talked to anybody that says we want putin in there? we're aligned with russia. have you found any of those people? >> yeah, lots of them in crimea actually. you know, the older people who are living in crimea now. they were part of the old soviet union. they grew up with soviet ways. they feel like the government here in kiel. they are 400 miles away. they feel like the government in kiev isn't paying attention to their want and needs and would like to be that way, but the truth is the contusion says that can't happen. a vote by the people down in
crimea it means nothing because you can't legally have that vote in the first place, so though they might want to be aligned with russia, their culture certainly is, under the constitution they can't. they would have to change the constitution, and they haven't done that. >> shep, a little bit of a comment, interviewed john busse from the "wall street journal," you brought out this natural gas, sending liquefied natural gas from the united states over to eastern europe is a talking point. it's a talking point on the right. it's a talking point on the left. it's not feasible for years and probably never financially feasible. just give us a sense. the people on the ground there, do they realize that we're not coming with liquefied natural gas help? >> i don't think they are thinking about that, frankly. the people here on the ground, what they are thinking about is the people who died here and the fact that their government is in turmoil and they don't really know who is going to run the place and that putin is over there saber rattling and
meddling in their affairs. this gas issue and the road to rush and all those things, i don't think that's on the minds of everyday people here, and, eric, that's not to say it won't be eventually because it will be an issue. it's just top of mind for them is other things. >> the russian parliament also moved quickly to say whatever referendum they would allow crimea into russia, but this goes back -- katherine the great took the crimea peninsula as probably the crown jewel of the russian empire. these are russians, in fact, and my guess is, only guessing, that they are not going to go back to the ukraine, are they? >> well, i don't know how that would happen. you can't -- under the constitution you cannot separate crimea from russia. it's not possible. it would be as if kentucky said we're leaving the united states. well, actually, kentucky you can't do that. crimea can't do it, and they can't do it for a number of reasons. the only way that that can happen is if there were a vote
of the entire country, and it would have to be a super majority of the people and the parliament to allow any section to -- to leave the union, and that hasn't happened. that's not going to happen. that kind of a sentiment does not exist across this country so it's something that everybody is talking about. it's something that they voted on because the russians made them, but it's nonsense. it can't happen. >> it's reality is what it is. >> kimberly, it seems that the people of crimea have very limited choices at this point especially since the european countries have made it clear they are not going to intervene in a way that's meaningful for them. what will be the next steps and the most likely outcome? >> the next step will have to be pressure. russia will understand it if their economy starts to collapse, if they can't get their gas out, if -- if the ruble starts to collapse against the dollar and the rest of the world so that they can't buy things, if president putin starts to get pushback from his own people, and if the economy
collapses he would. the only way to make that sort of thing happen, u.s. sanctions are a great idea and they have to happen but the rest of europe and the united kingdom have to get involved. germany doesn't want to do that, so many ties in the energy industry n.great britain there was a piece of paper that came from the monetary folks, and it was -- they got a close-up of it from a video camera, and what it said was we're not go about to get involved in any financial sanctions because they have too many ties to russia, russia's economy and vladimir putin. so for now at least no matter what they are saying looks as if the europeans want get involved in any kind of sanctions, won't join in that kind of cause and if the united states can put any pressure where russia feels like they have to back down, it will but so far that hasn't happened. >> shep, it's dana. earlier you had an interview with a man who had gone to ukraine to actually focus on the victims which i think has been lost. if 88 people died in new york city at the hands of their government there would be a lot
more coverage than we're getting of the victims there. your thought on that documentarian's work. >> i like the guy. he's from jersey and lives in new york city. he videotaped the orange revolution and he's since come over to do this. his family is from the ukraine. he seemed to want to do it, and the money that he's gotten, got like $7,000 for it. he gave that away to charity so it's not like this guy is in it for money. wants people to understand this, and there's a difference between the coverage here and the rest we get around the world. here they are still talking about the people who memorialize behind us and wondered if they died in vain, died for anything, if they will be able to keep this area and country together. the rest of the world is talking about the politics and energy and who gets leverage and who doesn't. here it's about people, the people who died on this street. >> all right. thank you, shepherd. getting a hoarse voice for all you have done. thanks so much. >> a gambler blows half a million in vegas and now he's suing the casino because he says
you get 4 lines onw at&t's network...ilies including unlimited talk unlimited text ...and 10 gigs of data to share. 10 gigs? 10 gigs. all for $160 dollars a month. you know, i think our family really needed this. it's really gonna bring us closer together. yep. yep. yep. yep. yep. yep. introducing our best-ever family pricing for instance, a family of four gets 10 gigs of data with unlimited talk and text for 160 dollars a month. only from at&t. iwe don't back down. we only know one direction: up so we're up early. up late. thinking up game-changing ideas, like this: dozens of tax free zones across new york state. move here. expand here. or start a new business here...
all right. listen to this one. a man gambles away half a million dollars in vegas at the downtown grand over super bowl weekend, but he doesn't think he should have to pay up pause he was blackout drunk at the time. his name is mark johnson from southern california, and he's suing the casino for him loaning money and serving him drinks when he was allegedly visibly intoxicated. regulations ban casinos from allowing those visibly drunk to gamble and his attorney is trying to get the debt erased. >> playing on credit is out of
question, drink together point of intoxication is out of ordinary for mr. johnson. as the downtown grand hosts we believe should have nobody over his years of experience with mr. johnson. >> all right. kimberly, this guy flies into vegas, his girlfriend. he drinks in the limo. he gets to the restaurant and he drinks at the restaurant. he gambles and he loses and takes out a loan and they comp him drinks and he's out half a million. is this i go a loser or a legal leg to stand on? >> there goes the engagement ring. i think he can make a case. the best he can do is try to settle. casino lawyers are regularly used to dealing with these types of cases. a very bad precedent if they went ahead and said we'll forgive the debt, et cetera, our bad because everybody who had a couple and too many spiked shirley temple cocktails will be claiming i'm not responsible for the debt. you should have known i was intoxicated. i don't normally drink this much, et cetera,ette, but he has a little bit of an argument to make because he has a history
there so they know him, so if it's eric with six vodkas, they can say that's not out of the ordinary. if you push 15 maybe. >> maybe first of all, anybody who is a blackout drinker is a drunk and alcoholic. his attorney say this is an occasional situation for hi. the law is very specific. you're not supposed to let a guy gamble who is obviously drunk. we'll see by the videotape, that will tell you something about it, but this guy is a drunk alcoholic. i have gambled in a blackout and i've lost. >> right. >> i did not sue anybody. didn't lose anywhere another that much, but i lost, and i don't remember the whole thing. don't remember getting to the casino or leaving the casino. all i remember is i was down a few thousand bucks. >> casino is not wrong. that's what they do. they serve drinks. you know it walking into that place. anyone who can lose $500,000 in a night, you have to be a big player, you have to know how to lose a lot of money. $500,000 is a lot of money to lose in a night. you've got to be a big gambler to be able to do that so he's no
stranger to a casino. that would be the only thing if it was his first time doing it. >> and probably knew a lot about him if they gave him that kind of credit. >> probably haven't been to a casino since you're so pure. >> i've walked through and watched. >> my gosh. >> wouldn't have any experience with this. casinos operate this way, do they just serve people? >> you don't know. >> you have to be responsible, right? >> that's what i wrote down. personality responsibility, no sympathy, none. i have none. >> see, i don't gamble because i'm so cheap. >> don't act like you don't know what happens in casinos. >> this camera shot, you look like a giant and i look like thumbelina. >> sitting here instead of gutfeld, not that hard. >> not even here to defend himself. >> not going to do the women on the subway. >> after the show. still ahead on "the five," do men in america have a vanity problem? are they more worried about
their looks than their lives? that's what a new study says. bob, eric and i will chime in on that next. [ fishing rod casting line, marching band playing ] [ male announcer ] the rhythm of life.

beer belly. you don't really see that that much anymore, you know what i mean? >> i still have one. >> the other thing is when you say that they think about it once a week, women before they have even brushed their teeth have thought negatively about themselves 100 times so they have catching up to do. >> you must brush your teeth a lot in the morning then. >> what? >> you think men think about their appearance as much as they do? >> i don't think that much about my appearance, i really don't. >> are you kidding? >> i like -- i like to get my hair and makeup done because i want to put my best foot forward right and look nice and show i take my job seriously. >> you put your best foot forward. >> i already know what i'm going to say. i like a guy who pulls himself together. >> what? >> where did you get that from? >> one more thing is up next. ♪

today. >> i did. >> ah. dana? >> you want to talk about media bias. i want to point your attention to economics 21.org, chuck blahouse, former white house official and big think tank guy, by thinkinger. do a lot of economic stuff. paul ryan was attacked by "the fiscal times" newspaper accusing him of misrepresenting research from somebody at economics 21. it was picked up by paul krugman of the "new york times" and others and it's not true, so you can go on economics 21 and see the author of the report that they are talking about. paul ryan deserves better and he probably deserves an apology though we all know we won't get from one those guys. >> way to hold them accountable, i like that. >> bob? >> one of the favorite people i like to see associated with the republican party, can we run a little sot on this boy. >> in this uncertain world surrounded by lies and corruption, everywhere you look, there is no greater freedom than the right to survive and protect our families with all the
