bill said i'll be willing to pay a higher gas tax after all the money collected via the gas tax is spend on roads and infrastructure. and kelly says on every $10 for campaign raised go for infrastructure. better have a big lock box. they never do. i'm eric bolling along with etc. etc., bob beckel, epep, and greg gutfield. it's 5:00 in new york city. this is "the five." so the world is on the verge of mayhem, vlad putin flexing his migitary muscle. kim jong-un got 100% of his people to vote for him or die, and the what is the leader of the free world doing? >> do you send ambassador rodman to north korea on your behalf? i read you would be sending hulk hogan to syria, or is that more of a job for yatonya harding.
>> he's not our ambassador. >> i have to know, what is it like to be the last black president. >> seriously? what's it like for this to be the last time you talk to a president. >> you said if you had a son, you wouldn't let him play football? what makes you think he wouldn't play football. what if he's a nerd like you. >> do you think a woman like michelle would marry a nerd? why don't you ask her whether you think she's a nerd. >> could i? >> i wouldn't let her near you. >> yakking it up with zach galifianakis. that interview went live hours after the president returned from the big golf weekend extravaganza. dana, you're groening a little bit. >> cringing. i love tv programs like that normally. i think they're funny. i like that humor. i just don't like it for the president. i don't think they set him up for success. i don't think he knee what he was getting into. if you're going to be on a comedy program, make the choice to use the president's time for
that, you have to hit one out of the park. otherwise, you're going to be ridiculed. all day long, that's what everybody has been talking about. >> between the ferns conversation with the president. i find it -- i think that a president's time is very, very valuable. and if you go to him as a press person and say we would like for you to do this interview because we think it will get you x or get us y, whatever we think we need, i do not think they're using the president's time wisely. >> greg, do you agree? >> you know, between two ferns is one of the hippest shows on the web. everybody who is into comedy loves it. that's exactly what president obama needed now, was more hip credibility. and i think right now, putin is going, like, obama is on two ferns? we better get out of the crimea region because now he's more hip than ever. i do agree, this is a lot about timing. perhaps he should wait until the country is in better shape before you engage in a manufactured orgy of hipster
awkwardness, but it's called two ferns. the real fern is the president. he's dithering to the point of stationary on foreign policy. he's idealogically paralyzed here by his own leftism at home. the only difference is a fern doesn't bow. >> not on purpose. andrea, so he also, president obama also took the weekend and went golfing. a lot of people are saying, look, there's a lot going on in the world, not the least of which three americans are still missing. is it time to be golfing and playing around with zach galifianakis on between two ferns. >> we have this a lot, should he be golfing, why can't he get more focused? we sound like the mothers from toddlers and tiaras and we have a daughter who won't wear the tiara and doesn't want to wear the dress. we're very upset with president obama. this is who he is. from the day -- from the day he started campaigning, i think he thought he won america's got talent and the kaunlsilation prize was a big beautiful
mansion and he got to hang out with celebrities. and nobody seems to be bothered with the fact that he can't be bothered with the other stuff. so my point of view is this, that dog won't hunt. he's never going to do what we want him to do. put him in his room, give him beyonce videos, ligoes, house of cards. lock the door. i don't want him meddling anywhere where real armies could march any. >> and bob, we re-elected that dog that won't hunt. >> it's a pretty damning series of statements around the table. i'll say, a, if you have never worked in a white house or worked for a president, you don't realize how important it is for them to get away and play golf, play ping-pong, play whatever. it's very challenging job. he does do his job. he may not do it well according to you all, but the idea that somehow because he's playing golf that putin is feeling that much better, and the g galifianakis thing, he needs younger people to sign up. this is a hip program, as greg pointed out, and the people who
watch it are the people who need to sign it up. >> but if you're going to do it, you have to do it well. it got 19,000 people to visit the website, but in their numbers they're short of two goals. overall signps that they need 7 million. they report eed today 4.2. and 38% of young people to be in the mix. today, they reported it's 25%. all this advertising and time and resources they're putting into the hipster programs isn't working. >> if you could predict your own response to this, so could they. they know you're not going to like it. they know fox news is going to like it. it doesn't bother them. pop culture has a greater effect on youth population than anybody who gets angry over this. you have to accept it, you have to play game and find people in the parties, conservatives and libertarian party, who can play this game. >> do you think young people would think that was good? >> oh, yeah, because zach galifianakis is a funny guy.
this is great. the solution is, if you don't like this, win a damn election. win an election so you don't have to see this anymore. don't blame them. >> we also need to point out he is the first president to appear on late night talk shows. >> that's wrong, absolutely wrong. >> a seated president. >> that's wrong. >> bill clinton did. that's how he basically rehabilitated himself. >> okay, fair enough. >> but george w. bush did not. >> nor did any president prior to that or in between. >> i don't know. >> bush do a game show? >> he recorded a video for a soldier going on a game show. >> can we do the show? with all the events going on, the president decided golfing and clowning around with comedians, but when asked this afternoon if that was the right message, jay carney said this. >> we're constantly looking at different ways to reach americans. >> but the president damaged if he didn't? >> we obviously assess
opportunities that we have. and you know, look at whether or not they're going to be successful and why. i think we made the right call here. >> so made the right call, according to jay carney. bob, as greg points out, they pretty much have the young person locked up right now. maybe they should be doing things to reach out to maybe middle-aged people. >> look, it's early march. 4.2 million and they wanted to get to 7 million by the 31st. it's quite possible they could get 5.5 million or 6 million people. n none of you would have given that a prayer's chance of getting that far. if i said to you when you started to dump on obamacare when the website didn't work, if i said 4.2 million by march 10th or 11th -- >> bob, it's the likelihood of them getting to that place is highly unlikely. again, these are goals they set for themselves. and a good portion of these people who sign up haven't paid the premium. so you can't technically count them. they're counting them. they shouldn't do that. the point with the zach
galifianakis interview, i think it's hilarious. he's really funny. the problem is he won the interview. he looks good. he got people to laugh at him. president obama, that was not a win for him. so if you're going to put the president out there, make sure it's a win for him. he didn't do that. pop culture is great, and they have it locked up, and that's their playbook, but again, the funniest thing about that interview is young people are going to go to obamacare, see what the premiums are. that's where they're going to laugh. ha ha, i'm not paying. >> he and his friends were aware of this and watched it and thought it was cool. >> that didn't get them to sign up. >> did they sign up? >> i don't know. >> at the end of the day, with their well loved by the young generation, we get that, but are they driving people to the website to sign up or not? >> that's the weirder thing about it. this is a manufactured show awkwardness. that's what it's supposed to be. it really is about clever people duping their fans into a plan
that needlessly burdens them. in a weird way, zach just screwed his own audience because they don't need this. >> can i play this, dana? let's play a little piece of how they made the turn to obamacare. the president said he agreed to do the funny or die interview to create awareness among young people of obamacare. >> have you heard of the affordable care act? >> oh, yeah, i heard about it. that's the thing that doesn't work. why would you get the guy who created the zoon to make your website? >> health cacare.gov works grea now. the law means insurers can't discriminate genls you if you have a pre-existing condition anymore. >> what about this, though? >> that's disgusting. how long have you had that? >> just four months. >> really? >> spider bites. i got attacked by spiders. >> zach, you need to get that checked right away. >> just moments ago, the administration released the latest obamacare enrollment numbers.
4.2 million since october 1st. only one quarter are young enrollees, and they still won't tell us they need more of those, by the way, and they won't tell us how many have paid. so is this about making president obama look good and cool and young and hip, or about enrolling young people in obamacare? >> i think they thought this would actually help them, and i think this probably has been in the works for a while. i just think that it wasn't good use of his time because celebrity and cool is not necessarily the best thing for a president to be espousing. if this program was so great, people would be running to it in droves. i think what we talked about before is going to have to happen to get young people to the table, if we're going to keep obamacare, they have to increase the penalty because otherwise, they're not going to move to it. in addition to that, those numbers, what was the point of obamacare in the first place? to get the uninsured insured. they haven't released the numbers, but estimates are most
people who signed up of the 4.2 million had insurance anyway. they're not tapping into the young market or the people they said they wanted to help. >> remember, none of you would have -- >> we don't know what the problem is. >> 4.2 million. >> no, no. >> and by the way, paying for your insurance, you pay it 30 days after you get it. >> 4.2 million have looked and picked out something they would like to get. >> 4.2 million people is a lot of people. up to you people, it would be 12 or 13 people. >> but 12 million lose their insurance, that's not that much. >> it's the same game. they're going to end up with, what, 3 million actually inrorred? >> you think that many people were uninsured before? >> yes. >> prove it. >> it would have been by the end of the year, but president obama decided to push the date back a year. >> prove it. >> prove it? >> i can't prove it. >> well, there you go. >> there you go. you never proved anything, bob. >> that's not fair. >> no, you're just pulling that
right now. you throw out numbers. >> i think they set up this funny or die sets up the situation perfectly. it was basically laugh at health care reform or die. if you don't sign up young people, you will die. you know what the young people are thinking? i'm not going to get sick. i don't need it. i'm healthy, i'm young. i'm not worried about dying. good if you think of sebelius and pelosi when they were on jon stewart and this this show, i laughed, too, but i don't see the motivating factor. i don't see the reason to ask the president to prepare his time for that. i wouldn't have asked the president to do it. >> what you're getting at is how obamacare has been bringing his entire administration down to this one all-consuming effort at the expense of the stature and at the expense of policy. >> but we'll find out, see how many people visit the website in the next few days. >> don't you think the president thinks he's funny? don't you think they bought
their own hype? >> i think he is funny. i think he's funny in small group settings. >> like when you're playing pictionary. >> like in the oval office. he's hilarious. >> next, democrats pull an all-nighter in the senate on one of the coldest winters up recent memory to raise awareness about climate change, and there was plenty of hot air there. >> later, an update on the search for the missing plane in asia and new theories about what might have happened. we have a few. stay with us. asia and new theories about what ♪ ♪ so you can have a getaway from what you know.
democratess are so worried about global warming that they're now losing sleep over it. more than two dozen took part in an all-nighter on the senate floor in hopes to wake up congress on climate change. >> the vast majority of the american people understand climate change is real. there's no doubt about it. >> over 98% of all working climate scientists believe that human activities have led to
climate change. >> if you went to 100 doctors and 98 of them said you were sick and should take medicine, but two told you you were fine and should do nothing, what would you do? >> we are on the cusp of a climate crisis. a point of no return. >> this is not just a question of morality or ethics but a question of our survival. >> maine is having a bounty because they have all of connecticut's lobsters. >> this might be the first time in history where a party has filibustered themselves. notably absent from a talk athon, four senators vulnerable in november. begich, hagen, pryor. let me ask you about this question of having a pr stunt like this where there is no bill to vote on. there is a bill that passed the house, but the senate is languishing so they basically just talked themselves to death
for no productive reason. >> i think the reason they're doing this is because the senate lately has seemingly become the epicenter of rallying the base. last week, we talked about the mumia cop killing lawyer who didn't get the appointment. now they're taking about climate change. not issues that matter to real americans but issue to the democratic base. when you start to rally too much, you start to rally the other side and you get the voters you really want, the independents going, why are you talking about this? eastern europe is in trouble. charter schools, you're at war with charter schools, one wing of your party. we're not creating jobs. health care is a mess. so you begin to look increasingly out of touch. i think that's exactly what they're doing. >> the democratic base is not american? is that what you're say sng. >> no, bob, i didn't say anything like that. >> you said the democratic base was other americans? i was trying to figure out what you said. >> she didn't say that. anyway, let's ask bob. do you think that they are
vulnerable? why not vote on a bill then? why don't they bring it up? >> they don't have a bill to bring up. and i don't know -- frankly, it's not going to rally the base that much because there's not too many in the base who think about climate change. >> but we know why this was held? >> i assume they think that it will be a salable issue come the fall. i don't happen to believe that. but i think they wanted to make awareness -- some of these people firmly believe it, they have a reason to stand out there. i'm not going to cite the 97% or 98% because i don't know what the answers are. i do know this, if everybody does agree there's 40 billion tons of carbon dioxide put in the air every year in the united states, it seems to me at thas point something must be getting hurt by it. >> can i quickly say for sure i know you said the democratic base doesn't care about climate change. i would disagree with that. >> a small percentage --
>> thank you. i'm so glad you threw that to me. billionaire tom stier has pledged $100 million for any lawmaker who is going to make climate change one of his or her campaign processes, campaign ideologies, thoughts going forward. so 96 of them, or whatever, all but four democrat senators showed up to do this, and they made sure their hands were raised and they got on camera because they want a piece of the $100 million. >> it's worse than that. it's worse than that. tom steyer, the big billionaire, he pledged $100 million, but he said he would give $50 million of his own, but they had to match the rest. that's why you had the steyer-thon, saying we raised awareness. can we get $50 million to match the other $50 million you promised? greg, i want to ask you, has the college campus finally arrived in congress? this is where we get to,
symbolic? >> where was the pizza? they should be doing each other's hair and pajamas. these slumber party experts have ignored the recent data on climate change, that it's been flat lining for four decades. that the faulty models are responsible for the exaggeration in warming. a slight increase in warming saves lives. the colder the world is, the more people die. the solution for that, they don't have any except more money. they ignore recent data on climate change. they ignored their own data on gun control based on a gun control study. they ignore the science on e-cigarettes. these are the homost anti-scien experts since ms. cleo. instead, they embrace posturing over pipelines. what could reduce the dependency on foreign oil, create jobs for thousands of people and reduce the power of tyrants? the keystone. instead, we get keystone cops. >> do you think, andrea, people who support keystone pipeline stage a talk athon of their own
and see if the democrats show up? >> that would be a grit idea. if i were a democrat, i would absolutely show up. again, i'm torn when it comes to things like this because i would rather have democrats up all night when the rest of us are sleeping, slamming their gums over an issue that now half the count country think is exaggerated. i would rather have them doing that than meddling in geopolitics. every time the progressives get involved, like charter schools, everyone's lives get equally bad. they're not about sharing the wealth. they're about spreading it around so everyone's live is equally terrible. when obama gets involved in foreign affairs, chaos inshensu anarchy ensues. >> everybody is affected. it might be one thing to keep in mind there are people like me who actually believe that climate change is a danger to the country. if they want to stand up and say that and it's not getting the publicity it has, maybe they can do it. you know, i believe it.
you don't believe it, you don't think -- >> then what about the policy? why not put forward a policy and have them vote on it? the senate is not a debating society. >> they couldn't get 60 votes. >> climate change does not suffer for lack of media coverage. >> that's for sure. >> bob, you admitted that the democratic party doesn't really care about it. >> i said the democratic base -- >> take a look at this poll before we leave. this is from the pew research center in january. it asked americans top policy priorities despite all of the publicity on climate change, the number one thing is strengthening the economy. interestingly to me, the way to actually solve the global warming problem if you're concerned about carbon dioxide emissions is to grow the economy so we have more money to technology to help us do that. >> there's a problem with that poll. >> what? >> did you see what number six was? >> reducing the deficit. >> they don't care about that. >> well, maybe that goes to andrea's point. love how we brought that all full circle. coming up --
>> keep that in mind. >> coming up, is the b-word holding women back? bossy. beyonce and other successful women think so and they want it banned, when "the five" returns. ...return on investment wall isn't a street... isn't the only return i'm looking forward to... for some, every dollar is earned with sweat, sacrifice, courage. which is why usaa is honored to help our members with everything from investing for retirement to saving for college. our commitment to current and former military members and their families is without equal. can you start tomorrow? yes sir. alright. let's share the news tomorrow. today we failrly busy. tomorrow we're booked solid. we close on the house tomorrow. i want one of these opened up. because tomorow we go live...
in a new psa, beyonce says the word bossy should be banned. typical woman, telling us what to do. >> this is ban bossy, take one. >> stubborn. >> pushy. >> bossy. >> bossy. >> when i was growing up, i was called bossy. >> i think the word bossy is a squasher. >> being labeled something mattered. >> by middle school. >> girls are less interested in
readership that boys. >> that's because they're worried about being called bossy. >> we need to tell them it's okay to be ambitious. >> we need to help them lean in. >> let's ban the word bossy. >> and encourage girls to be. >> be strong and ambitious. >> listen to your own voice. >> there are no limits. >> you can change the world. >> let's ban bossy. >> be brave. be you. >> ban bossy. >> i'm not bossy. i'm the boss. >> some of those women look like men. now, what kind of person wants to ban words? a bad person. anyway, they say bossy is mainly applied to girls to discourage them from leadership roles, but when a woman demands that a word be banned, aren't they proving the point -- they're bossy? isn't it ironic? ironic means stupid, right? assuming girls need protection needs a word bans -- boys like that, they like being bossed.
knroe i did and do, and there are worse things in the word than bossy. family breakdown, urban decay, gang violence, kale. i was not a woman, but i was a boy raised by women. here's what i know. moms are supposed to be bossy, and the greatness of girls is their incessant need to tell you what to do. it keeps men from destroying themselves. if women didn't boss, men would die alone. here's a thought, instead of ragging on words, why not tell girls to respect their bodies? don't take topless selfies, get regrettable tattoos or hang out with thugs. if pop stars addressed the toxicity of instant gratification, that would be great. now i'm be bossy. >> you're the boss. >> dp, before i said this, you agree with the ladies. >> i agree with them on, yes, i do. i think when you're a little girl and you get the, don't be
so bossy, you immediately go, oh, right, i shouldn't do that. >> says the press secretary for the white house. this is my point. all these people were called bossy, and look where they are and where you are. it worked. >> i think bob might call me a different b word, not bossy. right, bob? >> yeah. >> oh, it would be what? >> that's the thing, bossy turns into the other b word later on in your career. that's fine. i don't care. >> i cannot thing of a single woman i have went out with, and not many who are good looking, but many, who wasn't bossy. my ex-wife was bossy. the root of all this is the base of the democratic party. who started? >> basically, it's a war on women from the democrats. >> brought to you by the democrats, right. all those democrats. every one of them. >> is this the least of our world's problems, eric? >> it may -- how do i do this gently? it may have something to do with -- let's not talk about divorce. let's talk about last night. my wife told me take out the
garbage when i got home. then she told me we were going to watch the bachelor, which i can't stand, and that had to be on because netflix is only on on that tv and i don't have a man cave. she was bossy with me, but she's my wife. >> exactly, and there are rewards to that. >> what exactly are the rewards? >> love, partnership. >> commitment. >> not dying alone in your own filth. >> you need to get bossed around? >> listening to the complaining when i get home about how i had to deal with -- >> you guys are total wuszs. >> that's the point. the whole yin and yang of men and women is women are bossy, and boys are reckless. so they go together. that's how it, you know -- >> guys can be bossy, too. they're just called a different four-letter word that starts with a different letter. i agree with you. >> what is that? >> aren't their bigger problems facing girls in school? >> i'll tell you during the
break, bob. well, all the left would convince you that birth control is the biggest issue and i guess this is the number two issue, but this is a stupid campaign and it's a relevant debate because more women are making money, more women are in positions of power. that's why the discussion is somewhat relevant. however, i was called bossy when i was little. i didn't care. i wanted to make music videos and i assigned the roles for different people, and if they didn't like it, they didn't have to be in the video. i'm still that way. who cares? >> a high percentage of women are in leadership positions. >> they're on the upswing, and women are doing well in the universities, law schools, medical schools and it's starting to get better in corporate america and in the government at the state level, and then you'll start to see the change on the federal level, too. >> if women are worried about what people are calling them, maybe they shouldn't be in charge. >> i think it's about little girls. when you say to a girl -- i
remember on the ranch, on the cattle drive, if you had this one heifer she was being a problem, they would say she's a bossy old heifer. that's not a compliment. >> not to a little girl. >> to the cow. >> was the cow offended? >> what kind of family would call their children heifers? what kind of sick life do you lead? >> it put me in my place. >> were you a big child? >> yes. you wouldn't believe. you haven't seen the pictures? >> no, i haven't. >> did you slaughter cows? >> no. you took cows to the slaughterhouse. >> you did? >> yeah. >> have you ever seen them be slaught slaughtered? >> no. >> seriously. >> no, i haven't seen that. >> how did that take this dark, dark turn? next, the long national nightmare is over. the most awkward and bizarre season of the bachelor has come to an end, and the finale wasn't pretty. you'll see why, ahead. [ male announcer ] a body at rest tends to stay at rest...
while a body in motion nds to stay in motion. staying active can ease arthritis symptoms. but if you have arthritis, this can be difficult. prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain and improve daily physical function so moving is easier. because just one 200mg cebrex a day can provide 24 hour relief for many with arthritis pain. and it's not a narcotic. you and your doctor should balance the benefits with the risks. all prescription nsaids, like celebrex, ibuprofen, naproxen and meloxicam have the same cardiovascular warning. they all may increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, which can lead to death. this chance increases if you have heart disease or risk factors such as high bloodressure or when nsaids are taken for long periods. nsaids, like celebrex, increase the chance of serious skin or allergic reactions, or stomach and intestine problems, such as bleeding and ulcers, which can occur without warning and may cause death. patients also taking aspirin and the elderly are at increased risk for stomach bleeding and ulcers. don't takeebrex if you have bleeding in the stomach or inteste,
at some point, you know, maybe people have to go home. i have to say good-bye to you. >> i saved this moment for the man of my dreams. and i thought that was you. what you made me go through, i would never want my children having a father like you. >> i'm glad i didn't pick her. whew. >> finally, some real news here on "the five." that was the bachelor last night dumping the runner-up, claire. if you thought that was rough, things didn't go much better for the winner. >> i'm not 100% sure that i want to propose to you, but i want to let you know i like you a lot. a lot. so thank you.
will you accept my final rose? >> absolutely. >> absolutely. >> and then there was the cringe worthy aftershow when juan pablo couldn't pull himself to say the l word. >> at the end of the day, i made the decision i thought was good for me, and it is what it is. >> you are still in love? >> absolutely. >> is he in love with you? >> i don't know. >> so you love her? >> i'm not going to answer that question to you. we're done with the show. we are so done. and you know, i'm with somebody, look. >> you don't? >> we do. >> 12 years i have been doing this. this is a bachelor first. >> a bachelor first. most dramatic in bachelor history, he didn't propose. he didn't say he loved her, and america is outraged today. >> they are upset. he's a pro soccer player, so
it's no surprise his relationship ended in a 0-0 tie. there you go, ladies and gentlemen. soccer humor. basically, the tv show is enraged he didn't play the game, so they picked him. it's their fault. they picked a great looking, ab-obsessed athlete who is vacuous, baen, and you're surprised that a self-absorbed cad screws you ever? he truted the show like he treats his women. >> that's right, so you pick a dumb, horny soccer player. the casting director should be fired. america is upset because we're spoiled. we want him to get on one knee and profess his love. who is the problem? is it abc or is it us? >> i think it could be me because i have never watched the sthoe. i can't stand it. i think this manufactured baloney, fake chemistry, trying to get people to have a lifelong commitment to one another through this process is bizarre and horrible. >> what about doggy bachelor? >> i don't -- that would be
interesting. i don't get it. i can't stand it. >> you know what happened last night? >> what? >> exactly what you said. he didn't bite on the fake, manufactured chemistry, love, et cetera, et cetera. he said i'm not ready. by the way, they tape that whole series in five weeks. >> after he makes out with every girl on the show? >> he wanted to commit to them for seven minutes. >> just like what it's like. >> did anyone have diseases coming out of this? >> can i make one final comment? my wife made me watch three hours of that. >> you have another tv in your household. >> she's yelling at this guy the whole night. what a you know what, what a jerk, what a loser. >> i haven't seen it and i agree with dana. you have 25 broads who sign up to go with this -- >> heifer. >> puerto rican or whatever guy who plays soccer? are you kidding me? is this what we have come down to, this crap?
>> it's great. >> you give them lots of alcohol and you film it. >> i love tv. i watch a ton of it, and i watch a lot of programs that people think are really stupid. i think this one is undermining and destructive. >> greg, worst bachelor in bachelor history? >> perhaps, but you know, what would you want them to do? pick a normal guy. this guy didn't need this show. that's the thing. he's a good-looking former professional athlete. he didn't have to do this. that's why it was harder for him. he said, this is a friday night for me, 25 women. >> yeah -- >> anybody who goes on that show to find love has to be a little sad. >> i agree. >> isn't that the point? 25 or so aren't really going on to find love. they're going on to be on tv? you can see it. they put up with so much stuff. >> some of those are real. >> because they're voted off, because its they're not going to be on tv. >> frankly, if anyone says the sexes aren't different, watch the show. >> look at that dude. he's ugly.
he probably does have stds. >> hey, bob, you could be the next bachelor. couldn't be worse than juan pablo. well, maybe not. another day goes by without a trace of the plane that disappeared over the weekend in asia, and the theories are growi growing as to what happened to it. that's next. huh...fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. yep, everybody knows that. well, did you know the ancient pyramids were actually a mistake? uh-oh. geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance. eating healthier,tion by drinking plenty of water, but still not getting relief? try dulcolax laxative tablets.
today marked the fourth day since flight 370 disappeared en route to beijing from kuala lumpur with 239 passengers on board. there's a number of conflicted reports from malaysian authorities. they say the jet may have radically changed course up to hundreds of miles. as you might expect and imagine the confusion over the vanished flight has spawned many conspiracy theories. let me start by saying this. when the few airplane clashes there are, and there are very few, there's always pieces of wreckage, bodies, something around. this has a lot of strangeness to it. it's not surprising it gets conspiracy theories. what do you think? >> i'm concerned with what authorities told us, it made a
turn, not a 180 turn, which would make a lot of sense. if it was in distress, they would say let's go back? this plane made a 130 degree turn over another part of malaysia and it makes no sense. at the moment it made the turn is when they dropped completely off radar. it stopped pinging everybody. makes the turn and is seen picked up by other radar without pinging going over that strait, which is very, very kweconcerni which means it's being flown without being in contact. >> andrea, your brother is a pilot. have you talked to him about this? >> i have, just before the show. >> tell us what he said. >> he is skeptical of some other airlines outside of the united states and europe, for example, he cited that even a beautiful 777 was crashed in san francisco. so if you don't have the right people, staffing it, if you don't have the right pilots, the right maintenance, these planes that are great vehicles can go down. however, he did say it's very
suspicious there was no mayday call, no calls of a hijacking. and he said that's just very, very strange, which is why he says more and more people are talking about terrorists. >> did he say anything about why the transponder was turned off, the thing where the pilot can turn it to a distress call? >> that's why there's suspicion, because there's two of them. if it's a total maintenance failure, you still have one. if they weren't upkeeping the plane and keeping it up properly, two could argue goble go down, but that's why people are saying it could be terrorism. it's rare to have both of them off. >> greg, you're a healthy traveler yourself. does this worry you after seeing this? >> everything worries me. >> i know. you're the woody allen of "the five." i understand that. >> a ball of neurosis. people love theories. they're mental doritos. once you tastart you can't stop. the more we know, the more we
can't talk about it. i don't know the motive. i'm assuming for now it's a disappearing plane. >> dana, all these theories out there, there is some plausible because of the iranian connection, do you think if you say on margins that is something that still should be seriously considered? >> absolutely. i think everything should be on the table in terms of trying to figure out what happened. one thing i find interesting and i believe this still has maintained to be true, there were five people who didn't get on the plane. it's not unusual. you could have somebody check in, have to go to the hospital, but usually those five people would surface to say, oh, my gosh, i almost doak that flight. but we don't have stories from them. then we have the two with the stolen passports with the connection to a mr. ali with an iranian connection. i definitely think we should think about it. >> those five people are lucky. "one more thing" is up next.

because pj o'rourke is going to be on and i'm going to be on, too, which is really the special part. >> he's great. >> and this is one of greg's heroes. he's going to be on the whole hour. it's going to be great. >> all right, andrea. >> for those of you still reeling over the bachelor, i come bearing good news. remember this? >> that is so fetch. >> gretchen, stop trying to make fetch happen. it's not going to happen. >> it's not going to happen, but guess what is happening? a mean girls reunion. yes, lindsay lohan announced on jimmy fallon ten years later, they -- the awesome foursome will be getting back together to make fetch and gruel happen. >> saturday night at bob's. >> springing english. >> mr. greg, you're up. >> this is a big story. a couple was attacked and trapped by their cat. a 4-year-old cat in portland, oregon, and here's the 911 call.
>> my cat attacked our 7-month-old child. and i kicked the cat in the rear, and it has went off over the edge, and we aren't safe around the cat. a very large himalayan, and we're trapped in our bedroom. he won't let us out of our door. >> one moment. >> do you hear him screaming? that's the cat. >> i hear him. hold on. keep your door shut, okay? >> the child is fine, but that is one of -- i love hearing the cat answer the 911 call. this is why i'm afraid to call 911. >> wasn't that andy leavy? >> a very large himalayan cat. bob, you're up. >> all right, interesting little piece of footage we have took place in a preseason game between the marlins and mets. one of the marlins hits a home run. i want you to watch the people running for the ball when it
clears the fence. if you look up top, there's a dad holding on to his kid in a crib. and he lets it go. and the -- as he's going for the ball, the poor kid, whatever that thing you want to call it is, went downhill. i will bet you his old lady gave him more heat over that. >> he's chasing it. >> unbelievable. >> very good. >> keep kids away. i'm kidding. so "one more thing," president obama is literally down the block here. take a look at the picture. showed up at the gap to pay homage to the gap for purposefully raising their own minimum wage from whatever it was up to $9 an hour this year. and they're going to get to $10 an hour next year. i guess he's shopping for a sweater for one of his daughters. looks like a pink sweater. >> should get some nee jeans. >> the mom jeans are down toward 43rd street, in case you need that. >> the mom jeans?
