tonight, at 8:00 p.m., we're going to start. hello, everyone. i'm andrea tantaros along with bob beckel, eric bolling, dana perino, and brian kilmeade. it's 5:00 in new york city, and this is "the five." last month, president obama made this declaration at the national prayer breakfast. >> promoting religious freedom is a key objective of u.s. foreign policy. and i'm proud that no nation on earth does more to stand up for the freedom of religion around the world than the u.s. of america. >> he said promoting religious freedom abroad is a priority for america. now, today, he is abroad in saudi arabia, and a lot of people including a bipartisan group of lawmakers wanted the
press to address human rights issues such as the kingdom's history of abuse against christians, but according to senior administration officials, that issue wasn't brought up. eric, is this really a big shot that the president didn't bring it up? i mean, you think back to his cairo speech when he had the opportunity to speak to the muslim world about the atrocities against christians, against women, against gays. he didn't do it then. why would he do it now? >> i can't imagine why he would do it now. again, we talk about leading from behind. this would be taking a step forward and addressing some of the things that he's probably should be, as dana points out, at least bringing up. you don't have to have a long conversation. at least bring it up. i'm not sure what goes on behind closed doors with the president. he comes out of the meeting with the pope. he says one thing, the pope says the other. he has an opportunity to sit down and talk to saudi arabia. did he bow? i'm not sure if they have him bowing or not. saudi arabia is very concerned
with syria. they're extremely concerned with syria. they wanted president obama to do something to help the rebels in syria. he decided not to. the pope is happy he didn't. saudi arabia wants him to. he's are over the map on foreign policy right now. he doesn't know who he's going to say yes, i should, no, i shouldn't. and bottom line is the middle east is getting nervous with president obama's indecision on a lot of things. >> dana, saudi arabia, i don't have to tell you, spends billions of dollars funding a very anti-west philosophy. is it shocking, though, that the president would have an opportunity maybe to talk about radical islam and misses it? in a place like saudi arabia that is so clearly promoting propaganda that is anti-west? >> well, i maybe take a slightly different viewpoint on it in that i think that the current king, despite all the things that we all see every day, i think he is at least more mild mannered and modern than in the
past. and also, more than other family members that he has to try to manage as they try to hold together their country. and the most important thing to them is stability, right? to him, i think to the kingdom. it is possible that barack obama talked to him about radical islam and the concern about terrorism, but did not bring up a specific religious freedom in the kingdom because if you're a christian there, you have to pray in private or else you will be -- you could be arrested by their religious police, put in jail, or worse. i think that in addition to the syria problem, the bigger one is actually on the minds of the saudis is iran. but they see syria and what's happening there as part of a larger problem happening in iran. there's another issue that hanned on this trip that i understand that the white house weighed in strongly in favor of a jerusalem post reporter who was traveling with the president on his trip, and the saudis denied him a visa and did not allow him to come into the
country. susan rice, the national security adviser and also some at the state department did apparently make a personal appeal on his behalf, but the president did not. not only do you have religious freedom, but you have press freedom as well. two hot topics on the minds of all of us, but the one that was most important to barack obama in my opinion is probably the reparation of the relationship when it comes to iran and syria because despite all our differences, we do have a strong alliance with the saudis. >> bob, you have been very vocal on the show about radical islam. you worked in the state department, so you know saudi arabia is very hostile towards christians. they have this no church policy. what do you think if you're advising president obama? how should he handle a meeting like this, even though he's hesitant to even acknowledge that radical islam is a threat? >> every modern president when they head off to meet with the head of the saudis are encouraged to bring up human rights. it's a fixed bill.
in this case, you have a country that sponsors mohobbyism and pays for them to keep them off the back door, and sponsors these schools in pakistan that breed terrorists. i would bet you that he did bring up terrorism. the thing that bothers me is not just -- maybe he did, i don't know, but the fact he does not speak out about the deaths of christians. it hasn't happened in saudi arabia, but a lot of other pl e places that saudi arabia could probably influence, i think that's a terrible mistake. >> brian, he hasn't done it when it comes to persecution of christians in egypt or anywhere in the world. he had that press conference at the white house when he was talking about the middle east. he had an opportunity to talk about the persecution of christians. every time, he doesn't go there. why? >> very good reason. number one, he put them on the map, the flight schedule because they basically are threatening to break relations off with us. that's how bad it's gotten. one thing is apparent, when they had all the leaks, chelsea manning now?
i'm not sure. >> brad lean. >> when they leaked all that stuff out, you know what was apparent? we weren't the bad guys. the saudis are more concerned about iran all this time that we were in the bush years. they're pushing us to act. so then the -- iran, now that we have this ridiculous deal with iran, a year to cut this deal, the saudis are beside themselves. they're like, are you kidding me? how could you trust these guys? >> not only the saudis, our good friends, our allies, the israelis are losing it right now. they can't figure out what's going on with president obama. why we're letting the iranians play -- why president obama is letting the iranians play us the way they are. they're still building centrifuges. they're still enriching yourani to the point where it's military capability. they say they aren't, but they are. the whole middle east, the friends, the saudis and israelis frk people who we should be making more comfortable, are
going what are you doing? what's your policy? because it's not working for us. >> they're going to have it be a nuclear nation soon. >> that's not going to happen because i think the united states is going to have to do, and if we waited long enough, and i hate to say this, but it's time for us to join israel and militarily take out their capability to do that. >> he's going the wrong way. >> we don't know which way he's going. >> which way obama is going? he's letting them enrich uranium. >> we don't know what's going on in the background. particularly in the middle east, a lot of this stuff gets done in the background and is not for public consumption. what was said in the meetings, you can take it with a grain of salt. >> we lifted sanctions that were probably working. >> it's probably worthwhile to lift sanctions to see how far the iranians are willing to go, and what we found out so far is they're not willing to go very far. if they don't, by the end of this one year, i think it's time to take military action. >> the president also argued for
disarming our missile defense system because he argued that iran was not a threat. i'm referring to this because of russiana. we don't know what's going on in russia, but vladimir putin seemingly is moving his troops in. president obama gave an interview to cbs's scott pelley, and he said he thinks putin is nostalgic for the soviet union. listen and then reaction. >> i think he's been willing to show a -- a deeply held grievance about what he considers to be the loss of the soviet uniyoon. i think there's a strong sense of russian nationalism, and a sense that somehow the west has taken advantage of russia in the past, and that he wants to in some fashion, you know, reverse that or make up for that. >> all right, so telling the russians that he's going to be more flexible after the election, disarming the missiles. drawing red lines that he's not
enforcing. all of this seems like a bit of a provocation. >> what's interesting is the president's tone as well. it's almost -- it's not that i think he doesn't believe it, but i sort of feel like because of no drama obama, like, does anything get him agitated? >> get him a cup of coffee? >> some confidence and some strength -- and i don't think that we are refighting the cold war. but i do think that what we're seeing now is residue from the cold war. and as happens with most second terms for every persresident, foreign policy becomes something that even though president obama wants to focus on foreign policy and raising the domestic minimum wage, we have live action happening in ukraine and russia, possibly more, and then the situation with middle east and iran and saudi, and then the problems with china. foreign policy will end up having to dominate the administration. >> we shouldn't assume nothing is being done.
the missiles, that's a start agreement. but having said that, i think the people who are now most frightened are the poles and for good reason. what's going to happen is that putin probably is going to take part of ukraine that is not in the crimean peninsula for this reason. the pipelines are going through there. they're worried the pipelines are going to be sabotaged. i couldn't be surprised if he said we're going to defend the pipelines. >> that was a discussion -- we thought he wasn't -- >> yes, you did. that's when i lost my temper. because there are dempts and putin is looking to see where are the openings. how far is president putin going to be able to go before president obama does more, and what more can we do? >> i think he's going to try to protect his pipelines. >> he's going to cut off access, possibly, to the black sea from anyone in kiev, which is a nonstarter. by monday at 5:00 eastern time, they could be in eastern ukraine. they don't have 60,000 troops
just sitting by the border flipping cards and hanging out. >> what would you do about it? >> they have to think about it. if you're looking at that interview and wondering, trying to catch america's tone and how much we'll tolerate, what do you walk away with? >> would you commit u.s. troops? >> i would find a way to let them know -- >> find a way? >> how is it going so far? >> you could show military might without troops on the ground. >> i'm going to take the side of bob until today, where everything was going fine until now. if putin does make a move into other parts of ukraine other than crimea, you have another story. but i would go with economic sanctions. i would not put one boot on the ground. >> we keep talking about economic sanctions, boots on the ground. while putin is assembling real armies that could march. guess what the state department is doing? take a look at this. >> unbelievable. >> very strong statement in the form of a selfie by jen sake, a state department spokeswoman. could we get that picture?
there it is. to echo barack obama today, proud to stand ukraine for ukraine. world should stand together with one voice. i mean, if you're vladimir putin, brian, what are you thinking? should we have a marker treaty here? >> well -- >> what does that say? >> it's unbelievable she doesn't back off. instead, she doubles down and says hashtag is the new black. but let me ask you this. if you want to know what to do to send a message, i would immediately stop with the mres that haven't arrived. start sending arms to ukraine. they're our friends, allies. i would make it clear, a major announcement before i left overseas, maybe not in saudi arabia but prior, that we're going to start doing massive -- we're going to accelerate our natural gas exports. >> we can't do that. >> why can't we do that? >> this whole notion, on the right, especially on the right, saying hurry up, president obama, allow natural gas
permits, liquefied natural gas. we'll never be able to do that. here's what you have to do, hold on. if you take natural gas, you liquefy it, put it on a ship, send it anywhere in eastern europe, anywhere in europe, for that matter. all russia has to do is say, really, are you kidding me? you want to pay x, i'll undercut it. it will never be economically feasible. >> say, we're not buying your gas. >> the united states set a path to very strong economic restrictions on the soviet union. the house will follow, and the world monetary fund gave ukraine $14.5 billion. nats a pretty good chunk of money, and my guess is that weapons are going in. >> all we can do is what we know. they say they're not. >> they said that about afghanistan when the russians were there. >> dana, where do you come down on this? i'm not kidding here. i would prefer that president obama focus on march madness, help the first lady plan her
next junket. the last thing i want is for him to draw a line that he's not committed to cross, stumbling into another war with the russians. that's my take. watch "house of cards" suck your thumb, i don't care what you do. hard men in capital cities have taken notice. this is too dangerous and he should stay out. >> i disagree. the president should stop the selfies, stop the pop culture and all the "between two ferns" and all that and focus. i have two things to say since i was allowing you to have your argument. first of all, i think in a leadership position, you need two basic things. you can have one or the other. preferably both, and it's trust and fear. if you don't have either, if no one trusts you and no one fears you, then you're not in a leadership position. so there's a short range and a long term thing president obama should do in my opinion. one is start to repair trust, like i assume he was trying to do in saudi, and also even with the pope yesterday. on the short range, immediate
thing, what i think the united states should do this weekend is helping the ukrainians prepare for what i think they're going to see are spontaneous protests of russian native speakers living in ukraine who say they want a referendum, too. there will be crazy protests and the ukrainian government suffering under this weakness and not sure if we're going to help them beyond mres. we should figure out some way, through the cia or state department to help them protect themselves from protests that are going to lead to an escalation. >> manufactured? >> yes. >> we'll keep an eye on it. >> they don't want eastern ukraine. >> we'll be watching it. they have their eye on the whole thing. next, chris christie holds his first news conference since january when the bridge scandal broke. what the governor has to say about the investigation that cleared him of any involvement yesterday. plus, megyn kelly got an exclusive sit-down with him tonight. we'll show you a sneak peek exclusively coming up.
one day after an internal report cleared chris christie of wrongdoing in his bridge scandal, the governor took to the podium to defense his investigation. >> the objectivity of the report is based on two things, the breadth of it and the access to it without restriction to any information, and the reputation of the six people running this thing. these are six former federal prosecutors who i can guarantee you worked hard to gain the reputations they have earned and would not give away those reputations to do some kind of slipshod job for me. >> megyn kelly got an exclusive interview with the new jersey governor that will air tonight at 9:00 p.m. here's christie explaining whether he thinks the scandal will hurt his 2016 prospects? >> why should the american people trust you are a good judge of the people you should surround yourself with as public servants? >> that's a really good question, and i have asked myself that over the course of
the last 11 weeks. i think there are exceptions, and sometimes you make mistakes. i said all along to people in new jersey at my town hall meetings long before this happened, that this administration never promised to be perfect, but we promised to do the best we could. >> an internal inquiry came out yesterday. there have been inquiries before from different entities and different governments. do you think what they have tried to do in the last 24 hours in the christie camp helped put any of this behind them? >> yes, the internal inquiry they did was very extensive compared to other inquiries. they have been very expansive. they listed the sources, talked to staffers, looked at text messages, and the man who lead this, randy mastro, is a professional stud. he's hailed in the northeast and beyond as somebody who gets it right, gets it right all the
time, and would not compromise his reputation for anything other than the best. do i think it's put it to bed? no, and here's why and it's not christie's fault. there's a media that wants to high chris christie's name every time they hear it to bridgegate. until we hear chris christie jobs, chris christie fixing obama care, they're going to hear it. his staff may have espoused his personality, that's what he said, they took on a personality that disappointed him. we see it all the time in politics. it doesn't mean chris christie had anything to do with it. until someone gets me the proof, i believe him. >> what about the media part of that, eric? has the media already done irreparable damage to chris christie? >> no, there's no such thing as irreparable damage in anything. there's almost literally nothing you can do and be irreparable. you can smoke marijuana in college and be part of a gang and still be president.
here's the thing, though. andrea makes a good point. once you start hearing chris christie jobs -- >> fix obamacare. >> you're not going to hear that. you're not going to hear chris christie jobs in new jersey. you're not going to hear -- you may hear chris christie taxes because the taxes are so high and going higher, property taxes, thank you very much, my governor, all due respect. he's got a lot of issues. he's a lovable guy. the republicans are probably going, what is going on? this guy would be perfect if he just stays out of trouble. he would be. the problem is, if you dig deep into his policy and what is going on in the state of new jersey, i'm not sure on a grand scale, on a national scale, you would want that going on. >> bob, your advice always is when you're in a hole, stop digging and hand the consultants the shovel. what do you think? >> some consultants i would, others i wouldn't. the best thing he could have done instead of billing this as internal investigation was to have an independent
investigation. the fact is they do -- these people are good. but they got what they were given to do their investigation. they did not have access to everything they wanted to have access to. and there's still paper out there, still questions. why they didn't go with a totally independent committee and not six former prosecutors of which he was one, baffles me. >> he said -- he answered that a little bit today. one of the millions of questions he took. he said, look, i'm tied to almost every new jersey law firm. i have a relationship with all of them. these guys with their reputation, i went with them. there's nobody who can challenge their report. if they do, come forward. my feeling is unless those two people that he fired come forward and say, listen, i can't hide it anymore. he told me to do it, if that doesn't happen, that's the beginning of the turnaround. if things are going to be bad, this is the time to be bad. you can emerge as stronger from this, and he could get -- maybe this was his check, hey, i have to keep the temper in line. i have to not act like i do
everything perfect. i have to have humility in everything i do. the midterms are still eight months away. i think he can turn it around. i see him on the stage with the debate and have a shot. >> the bigger issue is how he treated members of the republican party and how he spoke out against the tea party -- >> and libertarians. >> the way he treated rand paul when he asked him to have a beer wasn't the greatest. that's a bigger party for him inside the tent, getting the support of the republican party back that he didn't think he needed when he was running for re-election. >> you may know every law firm in new jersey, but that doesn't mean he knows every law firm in new york or pennsylvania or iowa to bring people in and do an investigation. >> i'm sorry, dana. keep an eye on new jersey taxes, the economic activity in new jersey. if that's true on a national level, christie is probably your guy. >> because he's head of the republican governor's association this year and there are many governors on the ticket, is chris christie going
to put his shoulder behind raising a lot of money and helping them win elections? it's metaphoric. it's football, right? i
know my sports. don't forget, catch megyn's full interview with governor christie tonight. and up next, eric has your fastest seven tonight featuring harry, frank, and noah. don't go away. @w@wowowpg÷÷owúg
exactly one month ago, he said this. >> we heard about the evils of obamacare, about the lives it's ruining. and republican stump speeches. and those tales turned out to be just that -- tales. stories made up from whole cloth, lies, distorted by republicans to grab headlines or make political advertisements. >> all righty, tales, stories and lies made up by republicans. that was february 26th. listen to harry this week. >> i have never come to the floor to my recollection, given an example of republicans regarding obamacare and how it's not very good. >> somebody is not telling the truth. somebody's nose is growing. somebody forgot we have the videotape. bob, how can you explain this? >> this way. he said in that first cut that the republicans were taking advantage of everything they could to besmirch obamacare,
they told lies about it. they did. and he said i didn't give examples. he didn't. that's the difference. harry reid has a way to do this, he takes words and used them in different ways. the bottom line is republicans are still lying about obamacare. and 6 million people have now signed up for obamacare. >> there are meanty of horror stories told, all of them are untrue. they're told all over america. >> yeah. >> that is not just examples that were given. he's saying all the stories are untrue, and he doesn't think we have a vcr. this is the majority leader. this is tragic. >> how come you're not commenting on 6 million people signing up? >> no rabbit holes right now. dana, is this a function of harry reid using the senate floor for other than reasons it should be used. >> this is a great topic. the "new york times" had a front page story saying the democrat strategy between now and the end of the president's term is to use the senate floor basically
as a campaign, a way to campaign. >> that's something new. >> yeah, and they're so brazen that they even admit it. in addition, when people are backed into a corner, when they feel like they're about to lose power, when the midterms look bad for them, they'll do lots of things. things for a staff to do if you have a boss who has a tendency to say things like mitt romney didn't pay his taxes and you can't pack it up, you have a responsibility not to egg him on. you have to restrain him, but the senate democrats are going into the midterms with the senate majority leader they have, not the one they would want. >> this is only a month ago. jon stewart will find something you said seven years ago and use it against you. this is a month ago. >> unfortunately, he has memory issues i don't think ginkgo biloba could fix. he doesn't recall that we're taping everything they say on the senate floor. about using the senate floor for a campaign, why not? he uses the senate floor for his campaign. he uses his campaign to fund his family members. he's dirty harry.
to dana's point about lying, he's a projector. he says mitt romney doesn't pay his taxes, with no repercussions. nobody holds him accountable when he lies. then he can funnel money to his family members, he can lie again. they're so comfortable lying without any kind of -- >> do you think the republicans don't tell lies? >> he's a liar plain and simple. nocredibility. >> best drama on tv bar none, house of cards. watch. >> all you're doing is making the inevitable more difficult. >> it's not inevitable. claire doesn't have the votes yet. >> you really want to fight us on this? >> i don't want to fight you at all. which is why i suggest you declare we silt down -- >> i neither have the time nor the inclination to negotiate with you. co-sponsor the bill with the vote. i'm no longer asking. >> the script is flipped on frank underwood and his crew. they're getting strong armed by the state of maryland. lawmakers are threatening to seize "house of cards" under eminent domain.
nobody dletens frank. what is the issue? they want the tax breaks. the delegates in the state of maryland are saying, you know what? if you threaten to leave us, if you leave us, we'll start taking your property. >> you live by the political favors you ask for and you die by the political favors you give. this is a great example of why states should have low-tax policies and not give out little favors because now if "house of cards" wants to leave, the democrats -- most -- he is a democrat there, but passed on a bipartisan thing in the house of delegates. they don't want to lose "house of cards" and also, they have put their political futures on the line, and they counted on having that money there and the jobs, and they're about to lose it. >> good point. can i take it one step further? you want to take this, jobs? 6,000 jobs, "house of cards" has created in the state. $250 million in economic activity. i say they deserve the tax breaks.
>> what i find ironic is here is somebody like kevin spacey, the 1% of the 1%, asking for a special tax cut for himself. listen, i think they may be able to take their equipment and take it because of the kilo case, the supreme court kilo case. you are a person is free from unreasonable searches and seizures up their own home, but their own home is not. they can come in and they might be able to take this guy. >> they're shopping around for tax breaks. they're going to go to other states. all these movie companies do it. what are they going to do? are they going to take the set -- >> i say everybody should have a tax break. 100% tax break for everybody. >> targeted tax breaks. what do they do, take the set of the oval office? so what? take it. >> this is something you will note, the governor has signed it. do you think there's any way o'malley would sign this into law? >> no, i think they'll work out a deal prior to this because i think they gave them the precedent for this. the baltimore colts left in the middle of the night because
maryland was going to take all their equipment to prevent them from leaving. they picked up and left in the middle of the night in 1985. they went to minneapolis. they would do this. >> we have to do this one super fast. riding a wave of controversy, "noah" is expected to bring in a whopping $40 million at the box office this weekend. more drama with the director defending his film on "gma." >> what is literalism? does it exist? when you're dealing with noah where everything is a miracle from the deluge, from the animals two by two, everything that happens is a miracle. as soon as you start to interpret it, if you cast russell crowe, it's an interpretation. >> thoughts on this one? >> well, i don't like how darren aranofsky has been out saying this is going to be the least religious version of "noah." the least biblical version. people want values. you can watch star wars and not believe in yodda. why can't you watch this and maybe not agree with it, but
what's wrong with a lesson of the ten commandments? what's so bad about that? >> the religious right raised a stink about it. all it does is sell tickets. >> noah for me has become what anchorman was for greg. so many clips about it, so many articles, talked about it so much on the show, i feel like i have seen the movie and i don't have to pay to see it. good if you don't want to make it biblical, make it neil and the flood. why bring up noah? >> it's a very astute movie critic who said it's a film, not a documentary. i'm going to see that tomorrow with my son. ahead, the search for the missing malaysian plane moves again. what happened and why were they focused so far away? the clock is ticking to find the black boxes. we'll be right back.
flight 370, the hunt abruptly moved closer to land. 700 miles away. here's an australian official on why the search shifted course. >> this continuing analysis indicates the plane was traveling faster than was previously estimated. resulting in increased fuel usage and reducing the possible distance it traveled south into the indian ocean. >> so crews on several aircraft did spot objects today floating in the water. they're now analyzing the photos of the items. plus, with the satellite photos from the different nations. with the weather good and them closer to land, you have to think by the weekend we should have a breakthrough. >> i hope so, i'm not holding my breath. my question is why didn't they expand the search in the first place to, maybe, i don't know, all of asia. it's tough to lose a 777. if you keep looking in the same place and you're not finding something, you're not looking hard enough or it's probably not where you're looking. it's a little disappointing that weeks in, they're thinking let's expand this. >> unbelievable, bob, that
they're now working on plane speed and what it -- >> the question i have got is this piece of information, the plane was flying faster, it took 15 or 16 days to get it out? >> 20. >> 20 days. that's a important, significant position. why didn't we know about this? >> completely agree. what takes 20 days to figure out? if you have the data, you probably it 15 or 20 days ago, right? >> in the times they talked about that, that they have information for the families which caused an uproar. is part of this because so many nations are involved and australia is now in the middle? >> no, i think it was because the malaysians were so bad that all the other nations had to get involved and maybe they were playing catch up. there was an oceanographer on shepard smith's show, she was really confidence inspiring and could explain, this is what we're looking at. this is where it might have gone. she thinks by the weekend we'll have at least more on the strong lead. >> if they find the spot, they
find the debris is the plane, 6,560 feet is the high, the low will be 13,000 feet below. we have a lot of looking to do, but first things first, let's find out if that is indeed the plane. >> we'll move ahead with "one more thing" unless anyone is going to stop it. >> one more block. one more segment. thanks for trying to rush out of here, brian. >> 15 minutes before the top of the hour. >> an angry case of road rage caught on tape, and there's a lesson. do not ever flip the bird while driving, bob. stay tuned. that story next.
a lot of crazy people driving on the roads. you have to be very careful. this video is unbelievable. a female driver in tampa took out her cell phone and started recording a guy who was tailgating her on the highway. she couldn't switch lanes and wasn't going to speed. the guy eventually went around her and flipped her the bird. he cut her off and then spun out of control and crashed into a utility pole. the 33-year-old was later arrested for leaving the scene of a crash, reckless driving and failing to wear his seat belt. >> there it is. >> the crash right now?
>> that's terrible. she laughed? >> oh, dana, you would laugh, too. >> i would not. >> they say now 25% of crashes are involving cell phone, use of cell phones. yet here she is using a cell phone to take into account a crash. do they not really impose cell phone -- first, the guy had a long record, not surprising. >> i'm the guy who drives back and forth about an hour and a half, maybe an hour and a half, two hours back home. i use my cell phone a lot. i shouldn't. it's against the law. if they catch you in the city, new jersey as well, $500 and five points on your license. you only get 12 total and they pull your license. they're starting to crack down on cell phones. everyone is on their cell phone, though. everyone. you just look to the right or left, and everyone -- >> that's why i'm such a nervous passenger. i haven't driven in three years.
my husband is a good, responsible driver. he doesn't talk on the cell phone. if he does, it's on speaker phone. even if he's fiddling around with the gps, it makes me so nervous. it's not him i'm worried about, it's everyone else. >> why is there so much road rage now? it seems to be increasing. >> people are angry about a lot of things that don't have to do with the road. i don't think it helps that they're constantly on the devices. everyone is overstressed and over -- you know, over on technology constantly. that's something to do with it. i'm guilty of it. i don't flip anyone the bird anymore because i don't want to be recognized, but one time i did, and it turned out the person and i were going the same place, so it was really uncomfortable. >> brian, do you text when you drive? >> yeah, sadly. but i'm stopping it. when i'm at a light and i know i'm going to be there for five minutes and i could get something done, i'm tempted to be productive. i'll go and try to answer an
e-mail. >> i have a solution. first of all, what you need to do, everybody put your phone on silent. that way, it's not dinging so you're tempted to check it. >> good point. >> check it when you get home. then try something i learned on oprah years ago. put it in the back seat. if you get in an accident, you'll have access to it, it's in the back seat, and also, i don't know what that meant -- traffic? i don't know what that meant. >> if you're a parent with a 16-year-old who is ready to drive, here's what you can do, you can get a box that will cut off the capability. >> that's good. and by the way, i'm the only one who doesn't text. "one more thing" is up next.
it's time now for "one more thing." i will kick it off,o listen to this. karen agnes, who is running an organization called the network of enlightened women has a good idea for college campuses. she has chapters on college campuses where she's encouraging women to nominate the most gentlemanly man on campus. they will get a $500 scholarship. it's encouraging men to step up and be men, and it's a play on now, her organization, and i'm guessing boys, if you win this award, you're going to get more than $500.
>> i would have won that. >> i doubt it. okay, i forget who's next. dana. >> i'm next, yesterday, i was in texas. we were on the show, greg and i were at the bush center. we had this event talking about his book. there we are, little people in front of a big bus. i wanted to read an excerpt from a letter hand given to me by christy, i won't tell you her last name. she said you make me want to be more gracious to those i dish agree with. i'm an immigrant to the fine u.s. and "the five" not only keeps me informed but stirs my pride for my adopted country. you should be proud of "the five" and the intelligent and respectful manner in which topics are discussed. much blessings to you, especially bob, who is a very good sport. isn't that nice? i thought we should -- >> dana, what were you pointing at? >> "the five." >> i thought it was greg's tie. >> i wanted to give a shout out
to a very important person in my life the last couple days. dr. dan paul, who saves a couple fingers of mine that could have been in bad shape. he did a wonderful job. he does volunteer work for people who cannot afford to get this done. so i very much appreciate it. he's a good man, and give him a call. >> every time you give me the finger, no one knows. >> that's why he's been doing it the whole show. >> all right, eric? >> i'm up? so that show cashed in, 11:30 tomorrow morning, bob's head is going to explode if he watches it. is it now the united states of entitlement? and we're also going to talk about obamacare's war on businesses. here's a little taste. >> biggest bang for the buck or how about getting a job, how about working? look at this steel worker on a girder risking his life, but he's earning. he's making a contribution to the economy, to life, to society. or just a handout from the
entitlement class. >> what nancy pelosi doesn't understand is no one benefits when people's rights are violated. >> that's not nice. >> i'm talking about -- >> he's great. >> a great show. check it out. >> brian? >> all right, a short time ago when i was alerted this conversation took place on "the five." let's look at it. >> i bet nobody is going to remember this. >> killmead, you know this? >> no. >> brian kilmeade grew up on it, nobody knew it. and they sent him a box of cereal this week. >> i brought that up, a similar time, people talk about their favorite cereal. everybody thought i had a lisp. quaker oats tweeted me. this is what it is, a space alien. and i loved it because i loved that and i love the look of little hats that taste like stiruphone, so i'm going to donate this to the show. this was mailed to me. i'm not sure it's edible.
it's almost open. it costs about $8 now. it's a rarity. that's my gift. >> don't forget to set your dvrs so you never miss an episode of regrets hugging president obama after hurricane sandy. more on the kelly file, tune in or set your dvr. as a candidate barack obama promised he would be a transf m transformative figure who would move the country forward. consider this, the president has proposed reducing our army to the lowest level since before world war ii, after pioneering man's space flight, american astronauts cannot venture into space or return home without paying putin's russia. here on our own soil, the president's critics fear that we have not seized our own initiative inher
