which is why i don't understand why his hands is someone the size of 5'2". you know what they say about men with small hands. >> you ought to see him back stage. he was putting on makeup with a trowel. i will not say that he was trying to cover up his ears. i will not say that. >> he doesn't sweat because his poors are clogged from the spray tan that he uses. [ laughter ] >> now, that's not exactly the lincoln douglass debate, is it? but here's why it's happening. in the beginning of the campaign donald trump did something very brilliant. he staked out two essential issues that he knew republican voters were angry about. the border, and the economy. rather than getting into policy, mr. trump kept it simple. he will build a wall and deport illegal aliens. he will make deals that will turn the economy around and punish countries like china and mexico that he believes are treating the u.s.a. unfairly. that quickly got the new candidate a lot of attention
and a lot of criticism. trump then immediately counter attacked using hot rhetoric that most politicians would never even consider using. that got him even more popularity. the more he insults folks, the higher his poll numbers climbed. so he is two for two. he chooses emotional issues, simplifying them for potential voters. then scorches anyone that doesn't like it it even if you don't like mr. trump, you have to admit the strategy has been brilliant. and he would not be leading in the polls today he had not employed it the other republican candidates were taken by surprise as he hammered jeb bush and anybody else trump considered to be a rival. after months of watching trump's poll numbers go up. finally senators rubio and cruz began a counter attacked in the same way. the problem for both rubio and cruz is that americans really don't know them. and the media has attention to donald trump that getting well-known is almost impossible. unless, of course, you hurl
insults, which is what marco rubio is now doing. for his part, cruz is hammering trump in a different way. >> there have been multiple media reports about donald's business dealings with the mob, with the mafia. maybe his taxes show those business dealings are a lot more extensive than has been reported. >> now, i don't believe anyone's tax returns are going to give an insight into organized crime. mr. cruz obviously casting aspersions. word of the day aspersions on mr. trump. but all of this negative stuff hasn't really altered the race so far. recent polls say mr. trump is leading in all of the super tuesday states with the exception of texas. ted cruz's home state. so it looks like tomorrow trump will prevail again and it's how close cruz and rubio can keep the vote that is uncertain. the south, friendly territory for donald trump. but when the vote shifts to the northeast and midwest, the challenge might get more
difficult. but, by that time, he might have sown things up. if that happens. if trump is the republican nominee, we can expect a media assault on him that will be unprecedented in america. every sings gel day the press will hammer trump, e posing every part of his life. trump is getting ready. >> so that when the "new york times" writes a hit piece, which is a total disgrace, or when the "the washington post," which is there for other reasons, writes a hit piece, we can sue them and win money instead of having no chance of winning because they are totally protected. >> now, mr. trump talking about what he would do as president, attempt to change the libel laws. he can't do that now. believe me, the press is just waiting. a preview is this david duke stuff, a complete nonstory. i have spoken with trump hundreds of times. and i have never heard him
run down anyone because of race. he doesn't care about that. the g.o.p. madness is, of course, good news for hillary clinton, who has major problems of her own but hot american press will get behind. newspaper president will run about 20 to 1, clinton. so the question becomes can donald trump bring in millions of new voters to overcome his deficit among the press, minorities and other groups that don't like him? trump says he can do it. and he has confounded his critics thus far. well, that's the memo. now for the top story, reaction. joining for reaction senator john mccain. with the republican establishment get behind donald trump if he wins the nomination. >> i would assume that we, the majority will support the nominee of the party. and could i just add into
your -- i don't disagree with your commentary but i am saddened and upset about this level of discourse. just two weeks ago we had the director of national intelligence before the armed services committee and, bill, i wish every american could have seen it it there will be attacks on america. putin dismember ukraine. thanks to feckless failed policy of failed leadership of barack obama. what are we talking about? we are talking about the size of people's ears and throwing water around the stage and talking about the size of people's hands. that's not -- the american people deserve a lot better. and i'm saddened. i am saddened that we are not discussing these issues when we are facing the greatest threats the security of the united states in 70 years. >> okay. valid point. valid point. but you know that all of the invective and all of the back and forth is done for one reason, by whoever is doing it, and that's to win
votes. and rubio and cruz and kasich and carson and jeb bush and everybody else tried for months to dent donald trump's lead. they could not do it talking about issues, senator. they could not do it talking about issues. and, in your case, some have criticized you for not bringing the fight to barack obama in a more personal way. maybe you would have won the election had you done that. so you can see why it's being done. >> well, i can see it if you're willing to sacrifice your principles and what's best for america to only winning. yes, i have been criticized but i'm proud of the campaign that i ran. and i would not stoop those levels because my honor and my integrity is far more important than any election. the same way when i support this surge and they said it's going to kill you. i said i would rather lose an election than lose a war. everybody has their own standards. everybody decides what he
this want it to do with their lives. i wouldn't do this kind of thing. >> okay. do you understand trump's appeal? >> oh, yes. i think i do to it a large degree. millions of americans out of work. millions of americans who have seen no improvement in their lives in the longest recession in history since the great depression. students who are carrying student loans hundreds of thousands of dollars. obligations. actually shrinking middle class because of the economy, which didn't happen by accident. it happened on barack obama's watch. >> all right. but it's more than that. they are angry at their own party, not barack obama. they are angry with him but their own party. let me give you an example because you know what i'm talking about here because i talked to you about this. kate's law. number one we don't have a secure border because this alleged killer got in defied deportation five times and is he a low life drug addicted creep and he could
get across the border five times. so don't tell me we have border security and everybody knows it it number two, he shoots kate steinle. she dies, she is 32. we, along with the steinle family, bring a law called kate's law that would imprison any convicted foreign aggravated felon for five years. harry reid single-handedly kills the bill on the senate floor and the republican senators, led by mitch mcconnell look impotent and senator mcconnell wouldn't even take my call to discuss it. surely you know that a lot of republicans have had it up to here with the republican establishment. >> i fully understand that by the way, i didn't used to be known as the establishment. i was called a maf rhythm rick. but the point is you make a good point. and when we pass a omnibus appropriations bill that is filled with hundreds of millions if not billions of dollars of pork and unnecessary spending that nobody has voted on that you a then indicates that dissatisfaction. i will say that we did get a bill to the president's desk
to repeal obamacare. we are going to block his nominee for the supreme court. so there are some good things that have happened out of us gaining control of both houses of congress. >> i hope kate's law as a stand alone on the floor. >> i will continue to work on it. >> it's desperately needed. >> i will continue to work on it. >> desperately needed in this country. thanks as you as always a. brit hume on how he sees the super tuesday vote tomorrow and mr. trump's chances for the nomination. then chris rock rocks the oscar house with a big monologue on racism. we will analyze it upcoming. pet moments are beautiful,
unless you have allergies. then your eyes may see it differently. only flonase is approved to relieve both itchy, watery eyes and congestion. no other nasal allergy spray can say that. when we breathe in allergens our bodies react by over producing six key inflammatory substances that cause our symptoms. most allergy pills only control one substance. flonase controls six. and six is greater than one. complete allergy relief or incomplete. let your eyes decide. flonase. 6>1 changes everything.
i built my business with passion. but i keep it growing by making every dollar count. that's why i have the spark cash card from capital one. i earn unlimited 2% cash back on everything i buy for my studio. ♪ and that unlimited 2% cash back from spark means thousands of dollars each year going back into my business... that's huge for my bottom line. what's in your wallet? in the exact segment tonight, we continue with our lead story, donald trump and the republican party. with us here in new york city preparing for tomorrow night's super tuesday vote brit hume.
heart senator mccain. >> did i. >> i will support the republican no, ma'am he knee. clearly he doesn't want trump to be the republican nominee. in your context and in your thing, is that the prevailing wisdom among the elected republican -- >> -- i don't think there is any doubt about it they don't want this guy and don't want him for two reasons. one is they don't think he would be a good president. probably more than that, they are terrified of an enormous hillary clinton landslide if trump is the nominee. >> all the polls say that trump is running very competitive with the secretary. sometimes beating her head to head. yes, polls say other things as well that are revealing. for example, trump's negatives. in other words, the number of people, the percentage of the people that view him unfavorably, it's plus 24. 24% favorable with republicans. he is minus 27% with independents, and minus 70%, bill, with democrats. now, this is -- we are now about, what, less than a week into the beginning of a real attack on him by his
republican competitors. and by full out advertising campaign this is just the beginning. when you think about what is he like and the things he has said and the positions he has shifted and the business ventures he has been in that didn't turn out very well and the bankruptcies and all of that he is a target-rich environment. i think that by the time the media and the democrats, not to mention the republican attack finish with him his numbers won't be anywhere near like that. >> i don't know about that. because i have to say that i looked at the new polling today, state-by-state polling he didn't get hurt by the last debated, doesn't seem. ahead in every single state except texas and behind by one point in the polls in exit i thought, like you, that maybe he would take a hit in the last debate because rubio went at him so hard and cruz went at him but he doesn't seem to. >> sometimes it takes a while. >> sometimes. but here is is the unique thing about donald trump. and i think everybody should understand. this his supporters are going to wane no matter what the press or politicians
say. he is going to stay at 35% in the presix. >> take 35% from the republican party. more it will go higher. when others drop out he will get a share. >> 42349 one poll. >> right. he goal higher. but whether he can ever get to anything like a majority seems to me is a very dubious proposition. >> maybe. he has defied every expert up to this point. and i know his strategy because i have talked to him about it look, i know i'm not going to get blacks and liberal women, soccer moms or whatever. i'm going to bring in people who have never voted before. they are going to come to me. and, everybody who is teed off is going to come to me. and he is counting on the fact that he will just rip up hillary clinton. he will just destroy her on the trail. >> well, that might work. republicans can hope for that but, the numbers on how well he does in terms of percentage of people who would support him in the republican party if he were the nominee. it's about three quarters.
when romney ran it was about 93%. >> i expect him to lose. and i don't expect the republican establishment to get behind him that much. he is going to have trouble -- he doesn't take pack money. all right. he doesn't have that he is going to have trouble galvanizing other people and he can't self-finance a presidential glun that's too much. >> he has to go out. >> i think at that point a pac might be just the thing for him. >> he will set one up. you saw how mccain well, i will support the republican nominee. >> you could hear the enthusiasm in that answer. >> that's what i'm talking about. so it reminds me of the taft, teddy roosevelt race. you and i covered that. >> right. >> so much bitterness between taft and ted roosevelt, the two republicans, woodrow wilson flew right in -- i know what you are saying. this trump phenomenon is like something we snrefer seen in our lifetime. we have covered a lot of campaigns. nobody has ever seen anything like this. to make that linear
pronouncement. >> bill, you are not even saying to me here that trump has the support of the majority of republicans. >> he will if he gets the nomination. >> i you think he will. >> they hate hillary clinton too much. >> even so, i mean, his negatives are that high, is he is going to need independents and democrats in considerable numbers. not just partial share but really big numbers. >> particularly independents. >> right. remember are, romney won the republicans, overwhelmingly. he won the independents. >> but he still lost. >> he lost the election. gives you any any any the idea f the hill that any republican nominee has to climb although hillary won't do minorities but against trump she might because he gets nothing from those precincts. >> brit hume, everybody, thank you. a reminder fnc super tuesday coverage begins at 6:00 tomorrow evening. chris rock race monologue at the oscars. what did you think about that? later, watters going to the mexican border to see about the wall. those reports after these messages. there's a more enjoyabo get your fiber.
and i quit smoking with i'm chantix. i decided to take chantix to shut everybody else up about me quitting smoking. i was going to give it a try, but i didn't really think it was going to really happen. after one week of chantix, i knew i could quit. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. chantix definitely helped reduce my urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some had seizures while taking chantix. if you have any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse or of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you have these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have heart or blood vessel problems, or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. most common side-affect is nausea. being a non-smoker feels great. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you.
>> i'm sure there were no black nominees some of those years. '62, '63. black people did not protest, why? because we had real things to protest at the time. you know? [cheers and applause] we it real things to protest. you know, too busy being raped and linked to care about who won best cinemaing toographer. when your grandmother is swinging from a tree, it's really hard to care about best documentary foreign
short. things are going to be different at the oscars. this year in the in memo memo more yum package black people shot on think way to the movies. >> katie pavlich here in new york city juan williams. >> what did you think about that. >> he did a great job. explosive territory. easily could have taken one side and easily decide he was being pushed towards people that didn't want him appear and say he wouldn't come. >> say you areicer and on the vy night that he said, this three police officers were killed in virginia. i mean one was killed. the woman was killed and two were wounded, right? by a black army sergeant. >> right. >> so say you know those people and then you hear rock say on the oscars memo more yum is going to be the cops shooting back people on the way to the movies. funny? would that strike you as funny? >> look, you have to take it in context. at the end he even said black lives matter. so i think there is a larger
movement. >> you said it was great. was that a great performance. >> hits performance was terrific on this issue of the oscars and the lack of diversity in the nomination. >> what do you say, katie? >> i certainly did not like his piece about the police. and as you said young woman on first day on the job killed here in virginia right across from d.c. it's a tragedy. there were a lot of police officers last night protecting all those holiday actors and actresses so they could have a peaceful night getting their swag bags and all the other things. the reasonable did i like part of chris rock's performance is i think he took jabs at all the right people. talked about liberal hollywood. talked about the hypocrisy. the absurdity of people being offended over what was going on. important to point out that oscar nominations are earned based on performance. they are not given out based on skin color. and i think that's something that we saw last night in his performance. >> number one, the people who vote on the oscars are overwhelmingly white an elderly they have to change that to be fair, i think.
number two, i think rock is a brilliant comedian, a satirist probably the bestes as work right now. i thought his remarks were, i'm not going to say they i-i didn't like the cop thing. i would have taken my pen and said no cop things. the other what disturbed me is feed into grievance industry. they feed into that. okay. our ancestors got lynched and raped by black people. every group is can say that not to the extent african-americans can say that did it do any good? >> you know what? it's so interesting. so i watched it and my feeling is a little bit more like katie's, that i thought hesecured skewered people on both sides of this. this is what you have to complain about? complaining about nominations. he said to jada pinkett
that's like me saying i can't go out with rihanna. guess what? she is a tv actress and rihanna didn't invite me to her party. he was making fun of both sides. >> he did make fun of both sides. i just worry that younger people who don't have your frame of reference say, you know what? whitey's. they do, this they do that. it just feeds into that, you know, historical grievance industry. i think we have to get past. last word, indicatey. >> we have come a long way. the fact and chris rock talked about. the fact we are talking about this problem in boycotting over, you know, nominations really shows the progress in america has had. i think it's important, bill, to point out final numbers here. population of african-americans in the united states is 13.2%. the number of african-americans proportionally to the hollywood actor its and actresses in the film is 12.5%. they represent the population of the u.s. inside hollywood in terms of african-americans very well. and if they want more leading roles, they should
take it up with liberal hollywood, which is supposed to be utopia of diversity and progress. >> well, look, i can tell you all day long about liberal hollywood since i'm a movie mogul now. >> is that right? >> it's not a grand place in many, many areas. but i do sympathize with the black entertainment folks. this oscar thing, they got to change this thing. because this is way, way too white and way, way, you know, senior citizens. >> i think a lot of people would be thrilled to hear you say that. >> i don't care if they are thrilled or not. i'm trying to be fair. good discussion plenty more ahead as the factor moves along. insult politics, new trend in america. will other politicians follow trump-rubio? we have a special report on it watters on the southern border. >> are you concerned about illegal immigration? >> not at all. >> why not? >> because it's not that unsafe. >> we hope you stay tuned to those reports. uf
then your eyes may see it differently. only flonase is approved to relieve both itchy, watery eyes and congestion. no other nasal allergy spray can say that. when we breathe in allergens our bodies react by over producing six key inflammatory substances that cause our symptoms. most allergy pills only control one substance. flonase controls six. and six is greater than one. complete allergy relief or incomplete. let your eyes decide. flonase. 6>1 changes everything. campaign 2016 segment tonight. hillary clinton whacked bernie sanders in south carolina saturday night. secretary clinton receiving 73% of the vote when all was tallied. bernie sanders 26%. sanders did not even give a concession statement issuing a statement i lost. as we have been saying for months, bernie sanders will not offer hillary clinton much of a challenge, despite all the media hype. with us here in new york city, nomiki konst. from atlanta, georgia state
senator vincent ford, a former hillary clinton supporter who is now backing bernie sanders. you have to go back to hillary, senator, i think. i have the numbers here. on the national level, cnn poll out today has hillary up 17 %. and super tuesday, the polls say only in vermont does bernie sanders leading. all the other states hillary is leading. what say you? >> well, you know, that's why we have the elections. we will see what happens bernie's message is why i switched from hillary to bernie. reigning in wall street. $15 minimum wage. medicare for all a. those are the issues that attracted me. and i think those are ultimately the issues that attract voters. >> okay. and we respect that. but you can't think bernie is going to win unless hillary is indicted she just not. blacks voted 90% for her in south carolina and in georgia do the same.
he won in new hampshire. they tied. >> no black people in new hampshire. there is only 6. >> well, in nevada, you have a latino, population. and he lost by only 3 points. barack obama lost by 6 points in 2008. but it's the issues that attracted me to bernie. >> you still have hope. nomiki do you have hope? >> absolutely. >> how can you looking at these polls? >> one thing to keep in mind is that most of these states have poor polling. >> does south carolina have poor polling. >> it did. not in our favor. to be fair here, this is about 22383 delegates. >> yes. >> the democratic delegates different than republicans. it's not winner take all. it's proportional. it all comes down to the margins, even if he loses in some of these states, most likely won't be by a large number. some of them is what separates. >> i don't even think bernie thinks he is going to win.
>> i don't going to win. i think he knows he hanging n case of the indictment. >> he has enough money. he is about to pull in $40 million this month alone. >> he has the money, people giving him money. you know why they are giving him money, because they are just rehearsing after he wins. he will take the money. so they might as well give to him. >> according to educational. >> senator, if bernie sanders doesn't win in your state. he has no shot. you are going to go back to hillary clinton. so it doesn't really matter, right? it matters quite a bit. what bernie sanders has done is change democratic politics forever. i don't think the democratic party will ever be the same. it's progressive party. the people are progressive. and i think their leadership is going to be progressive. >> he has griffin the that's right to the left. you never know.
sanders gets clocked as i know he will. you will go back it to miller. whoever that issue will of w#i when you think about success, what does it look like? is it becoming a better professor by being a more adventurous student? is it one day giving your daughter the opportunity she deserves? is it finally witnessing all the artistic wonders
thanks for staying with us. i'm bill o'reilly. in the factor follow-up segment tent. as we told you in the talking points memo both donald trump and marco rubio are using invective against each other. in both cases they have strong reasons for doing so. and i explained them. the question now is this new trend going to stick in american politics? here in new york city kennedy and bernard mcguirk. you must love this because you and your boss imus, he is still alive, right? >> and thriving. >> we have to check day to
day. >> he ran a half marathon last weekend. >> dave pagoda, god rest his soul. >> you perfected the insult. the dog with the cigar. >> we're mr. trump perpetuating it. >> do you think it's good for the country. >> i do. it gets people involved. republican turnout is way up. the democratic turnout is way down because it's so boring because bernie sanders doesn't have the onions who go after the woman who calls him a sexist. this is between rubio and trump is like dean martin roast meets west side story. it's fantastic. don rickles vs. george lopez. you can't pay for better. >> i think it diminishes the country a little bit. do you agree with that kennedy? >> i think what happens is donald trump shifted the mayor dime wrote the rules of the game. smacking everybody down. a bit of a bully doing it. >> wait, why would obe a
bully these republican nominees are men. >> they're men but they haven't stood up for themselves. >> don, be a man. why is he a bully? >> he is bully because he -- if you are upset about the invective -- >> i didn't say i was upset about it i'm pointing it out o. >> i'm pointing it out as well. he has been bullying other candidates. >> i don't think he has bull idea. >> that's what democrats say. they call names like bully. >> why would he be a bully. >> calling names and people not responding. weak. if he is calling people names and people finally start responding in humorous way that's effective. >> if you want to say it's wrong for him to call people, attack people personally, he is not a bully. they can do the same thing. >> is he bullying. that's what a do. >> lack the fortitude to waited this long to attack him on this level. >> maybe they don't want to. you heard mccain say at the at the top of the program. >> you can beat jeb bush and sit around knitting an of a
if afagan. >> -- i know why they are doing it. but i don't know if it justifies it. let's get back to whether you see this as ongoing trend. you have got to say if trump is going to get the nomination. is he going to go after hillary clinton with everything he has got. does hillary clinton come back at him? >> yes. here is how it will be ongoing trend. if marco rubio somehow snatches the nomination from him. yes, it will be ongoing trend. people will see going negative, being funny, attacking people for personal physical flaws that's effective. if trump actually wins the presidency, yes, this will continue. if trump gets the nomination and loses the presidency, no, i think you are going to see the end of that trend. >> the democrats engaging in personal attacks for a long, long time. >> using surrogates. >> more sinister attacks. they call people bigots, racist and sexist based on policy alone. nothing else. that's the worst personal attack is worse than big ears or small hands or wet
pants. >> here is what is going to harassment i will make a prediction on the factor tonight. if trump gets the nomination, all right, we all believe that he goal after hillary clinton and it won't be any rules. he dual what trump does. >> look what he did already. he neutered the big dog bill clinton. >> i don't know about any dogs. but he is going to go after hillary clinton. you know what hillary clinton is going to do if she is smart? >> what's that? >> and i know she is watching tonight. i wouldn't debate donald trump. i wouldn't debate him. i would say, you know what? i'm not going to get in there and throw this kind of stuff. and i'm not going to sit there and take it? >> it looks weak. >> it doesn't matter. >> do you think there is one hillary clinton supporter, one, who would change his or her vote because she doesn't want to get in there and debate. >> like you said it's the hillary clinton supporter's mind she doesn't have to change. she has those on lock. it's independents and republicans who hate him that she has to court. if she can't play with the big boys she is not going to win. >> how you play. i mean, if i were hillary clinton i would not.
>> then she loses. if she looks weak and ineffective and charismatic alpha male take it to the rest of the world. >> all right. thennnobody knows this, but mcguirk is going to be the press secretary for the white house. got to get new glasses on top of your head if do you that. >> look like ben franklin sometimes. i like that. watters on deck. sent him to the mexican border to find out about the big wall donald trump wants to build. watters is next.
ahh... yeah! ahh... you probably say it a million times a day. ahh... ahh! ahh... ahh! but at cigna, we want to help everyone say it once a year. say "ahh". >>ahh... cigna medical plans cover one hundred percent of your in-network annual checkup. so america, let's go. know. ahh! and take control of your health. cigna. together, all the way.
