to quote ainsley, take heart my child. republicans, are you going to bring that back? tomorrow. hi. i'm greg gutfeld, "the five." mr. trump continues his twitter tear, hitting "the new york times" for saying his transition is a mess. never mind that it's only one two. in week two, president obama was still searching for his birth certificate. i will never give that up. mr. trump tweeted the paper so much that they responded defending their coverage to which i add, so. for some all this tweeting comes off as beneath a president. more the actions of a pop star with more piercings than brain cells.
ignore the message and assess the response. for the longest time, republicans had no choice but to absorb the onsloaught of a biasd media. it took all shapes. newscasts, ambushed reporting by "60 minutes," lefty films winning oscars, "the daily show" and snl. the right had to grin and bear it. if twitter exited in the 1980s, you can bet they would have used it against the right as well. mr. trump's response isn't a tantrum but more a cultural shift, an adaptation of the right stealing the aggressive tactics of the left. it may seem childish or a weird way to spend your time as the future leader of the free world. but for now, it's the new game in town. it's not so bad that finally someone showed up to play. lisa, week two, the media is talking about disarray. everything is going to hell. it's not even -- it's not even a
month. >> right. >> rome wasn't built in a day. i coined that fraphrase. >> i'm sure. it's the second week. he just won the presidency. cut him some slack and give him a break. i wouldn't give any credence to what "the new york times" and some of the other publications are saying. they were the ones that were wrong about the election all along. "the new york times" was so wrong in fact that they had to issue the non-apology apology to the readers essentially saying, look, we got some of this wrong, which clearly they did. if i'm donald trump, i wouldn't pay too much attention to it. this election, as much as it was a rejection of president owe be a maobama's policies, it was a rejection of mainstream media. they were saying donald trump would be horrible. reporters showed their bias. it was a rejection of them as well. >> they're still rejecting it. are these tweets -- tweets childish or punching back? >> here is the thing. donald trump has 14 million
twitter followers. 25 million between some -- maybe 30 million between twitter, facebook and instagram. there are people with more followers. lady gaga, madonna. donald trump uses it more effectively than anyone on the planet. forget the 14 million, he knows how to sting where -- he sees the opening and he takes it. that's what he has done straight along. he was naming lying ted cruz, little marco. he finds the opening. "the new york times," he sees that they had biased coverage throughout. they are getting burned by it. they're having to apologize, as is the washington post. i think they ran an apology yesterday as well. he is very smart to pin them down. you got them. you got them in the corner. let everyone know exactly what's going on. 25 or 30 million of his followers realize how biased the coverage was against him. it didn't stop there. there was quite a bit of negative coverage across the board. >> i think -- juan, i think it's unfair. it's lik buy a box of
legos, you have to put it together. that's the same with the transition team. why is it all of a sudden this perception of chaos? >> i think it's real. i think that's the problem. yes, you can blame it on nasty people, those awful reporters and all the rest. but i think when you see it coming from multiple publications, including some conservative, you might think, what's going on here. i don't think by the way it's an indication of guilt or malfee answer is. i think they were slow to get organized. they had to make last minute changes in terms of staffing, chris christie who had been head of the transition team is now gone because of some in fighting and the like. they have had to put more people in. they have had some changes. they're going through what is a very difficult process for anybody to put together the united states -- the top of the united states government in a very short time. i will say this in response to eric. i don't think "the new york times," "the washington post" apologized. i think what they said in letters to readers is we have to do a better and more creative
job in terms of covering an unconventional comfort. >> i could be -- i think the post did apologize. i will tell you, they're not in disarray. the reports are, they are not in disarray. wisely, they're taking their time. they promised to drain the swamp. it's going to take probably a little longer than some of the other transition teams to get everyone in place. you don't -- you are not pulling from the same pool of establishment democrat and/or republicans. they have to wipe the slate clean. i will tell you, they're not in disarray. >> i don't know. i'm not there. i don't know that you are there. >> where were you yesterday? where did you go? >> i will say, you get people who are republicans, like elliott cohen saying, i was going to change and i was encouraging people to goe over. i change my tune again. they are saying, you lost, you were on the wrong time. they are in fighting, shooting each other among republicans. >> i want to talk to you,
kimberly, about this ruth controversy regarding a steak dinner last night. presiden president-elect trump ditched the reporters and went to 21, which is not a steak house. more like an expensive burger joint. >> it's not a burger joint. >> have you had their burger? >> i have my birthday there. i've been there many times. what are you talking about? >> it's a great burger. >> it's an amazing restaurant. they serve a wide variety of food. maybe you can just afford the burger. >> $31 burger. >> 1% burger. >> only the 1% can afford it. we wanted to have family time. they called it a steak house. what are they getting right? by the way, is anyone surprised? did anyone think "the new york times" or "the washington post" were going to give a positive story about trump's transition team? no. no. this is exactly in keeping with how they treated his candidacy
and now they don't know what to do with themselves. now they're just ruffling each other's feathers. to me, we're reporting on this every day, it looks like the transition is going very well. they're making good choices. there are good, quality candidates being considered for important positions, just like he promised. >> can i pick up on this for a second? i want to talk about something with regard to last night at this restaurant, the famous restaurant 21. let me say someone who has been a white house correspondent that, the press wool is npool i there to give prestige to the press. it's about keeping eyeballs on the most powerful man. i was there -- i was on the augus augusta golf course with president reagan. we get in the press pool, get him out of there. there was marine corps barracks bombing.
is the president okay? it's important to have somebody there. this was true in dallas when president kennedy was assassinated. you needed somebody there. you needed somebody at the washington hilton when reagan was -- remember the shooting? because you need to say to people, the president is not laying on the floor. he's in the car. >> he's the president-elect. we have a president. >> we have a lot invested in donald trump. >> it's the height of power to have a press pool. we now live in an age where you have digital phones and smartphones. is it that necessary to have the pool there? if something happened at that restaurant, god forbid, somebody attacked him or something, that would be on -- you don't need the pool anymore. >> you need secret service. isn't that how they found out that he was dining there was because there was a bloomberg reporter there that saw and tweeted a picture? he was dining there. >> the public is now the pool. people take out their cell phones. >> i hate public pools. >> it's true. they don't like you either. >> ever since that -- it does turn the pool purple. >> if you are donald trump, i think this is going to be a big
adjustment for him. he's a billionaire. he has the luxury and the freedom and the ability to get on a plane tomorrow and to go wherever he wants. a lot of people don't have that kind of freedom. it is going to be huge adjustment for him to now have a press pool following him wherever he goes to have secret service following him. >> when he shouts out to all the people who applaud the president-elect and a very significant person as he walks out and he says, i'm going to cut your taxes, that's news. >> it is. >> we heard about it because there's the public there. >> we heard about it because a reporter was dining. the other thing to consider is with a president-elect, you've got to understand that his behavior, who he is meeting with, who he spends time with, is news. the american people want transparency. >> if you could ditch the press for dinner, where would you eat? >> we stopped -- >> if you were -- where would you go to ditch the press?
>> don't go to that girl's house. >> have i i have no idea what t means. he can go to trump tower. they have a couple of great bistros inside. he can stop them at the door. i'm not sure what the question means. >> it was a good question. it's saying, you were going to ditch the press, where would you go? would you go to 21? i might go to some place difference. >> because it's too high profile? >> yeah. i would go some place no one can find me. >> mrs. obama got in trouble because she decided that she wanted to ditch everybody and go to target. that was odd. >> that was staged. >> i don't think it was staged. >> a woman of the people. >> i think that was real. >> look, i'm just like you. i go to target. >> i think that was real. the other thing i will say is, remember when you guys were wearing me out because hillary clinton hadn't had a press conference. guess who hasn't had a press conference. guess who hasn't talked to the press except for --
>> wow. >> are you seriously suggesting that donald trump hasn't addressed the public? >> the press. he has not had -- this is a fact. it's not you and i to debate. >> i don't know. he is holding that permanent marker. >> he addressed people. he has addressed people but not -- the press are not people. >> he has been on msnbc, cnn and fox for the last 18 months. hillary clinton -- >> this is like the reversal. i used to say -- >> we said hillary clinton -- >> why didn't she do a press conferen conference. >> because she won't show up in this building. >> she had -- >> that's my point. if you were making yourself accessible to all sides, then you don't need to do a press conference every week. >> he is given the ultimate amount of accessibility we have never seen before in any presidential campaign. that's a fact. come up with something else. >> polk was out there.
good guy. >> more to come on the trump transition ahead. is the president-elect thinking of nominating ted cruz for a key post? the nsenator dropped by trump tower yesterday. the position he might be under consideration for next. i use what's already inside me to reach my goals. so i liked when my doctor told me that i may reach my blood sugar and a1c goals by activating what's within me
with once-weekly trulicity. trulicity is not insulin. it helps activate my body to do what it's supposed to do release its own insulin. trulicity responds when my blood sugar rises. i take it once a week, and it works 24/7. it comes in an easy-to-use pen and i may even lose a little weight. trulicity is a once-weekly injectable prescription medicine to improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes. it should be used along with diet and exercise. trulicity is not recommended as the first medicine to treat diabetes and should not be used by people with severe stomach or intestinal problems or people with type i diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. trulicity is not insulin and has not been studied with long-acting insulin. do not take trulicity if you or anyone in your family has had medullary thyroid cancer or multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2 or if you are allergic to trulicity or its ingredients. stop using trulicity and call your doctor right away if you have symptoms of an allergic reaction,

back now to the president-elect's progress in picking his cabinet and filling other key administration posts. mr. trump says it's going smoothly and only he knows who the finalists are. newt gingrich thinks it's wise for trump not to rush any announcements. there's a lot at stake. >> if you were the president-elect, you would want to go very slowly at first, because once you have made a decision, you have to live with that. they will begin to put things in place in an ordinarily way. it's going to take two or three weeks. you can't -- you would be dumb to accelerate and start making mistakes in order to make the press happy. this will be president trump's administration. he will make all the major decisions. that's how he has run his empire when in the private sector. it works for him. >> senator ted cruz paid his former rival a visit at trump tower yesterday.
there are reports the president-elect might be considering ted cruz for attorney general. when you talk about transition, you think of one president to the next. for me, transition from 44 to 45 would be not just the transition from the presidency but also transition into a new type of government. >> yeah. for sure. but also in that position, if you harken back, the ag is close with the president. they work hand in hand. symbiotic relationship. really understand closely the president's fill os philosophy,e president wants to emphasize. eric holder with president obama. do you see that connectivity and relationship with -- i don't know. with president-elect trump and ted cruz? >> i see -- >> what about the supreme court? that's what i said yesterday. that makes sense because he's on his own doing his own thing versus the position of ag.
that's got to be something where there's a very good relationship established. you are dealing and working with that person a lot. >> juan, there's no rush to lock down a cabinet, is there? and why? >> why? because i think one of the things that concerns people about donald trump is uncertainty and anxiety. i think it would be good if there was a sense that, these are capable, smart people in charge of government, that donald trump is surrounding himself with experienced hands, no need for anxiety in wall street and world capitals. donald trump has experienced people who know how to make government work and how to keep the united states on course. >> "the new york times" is never going to write that. >> wall street is making a record high. doesn't seem like too much uncertainty. we have world leaders calling him. >> big fight with janet yellen. >> we have 75 days. we have probably 68 days left to do this.
again, i will ask the same question i asked juan. should there be a rush to lock down a cabinet? >> no. these are important decisions he needs to make. he needs to make -- some of the people he is looking at, they have to be confirmed as well with congress. if he needs to identify people that are going to be able to be confirmed, which ted cruz is an interesting one. he has the background for it. i guarantee he is thanking his lucky stars he came around and ended up supporting donald trump in the end. it's smart politically. for donald trump, if you look at someone who has at least previously before he endorsed him and came on board, was potentially eyeing a 2020 run. you put him as part of the administration, get him out of the way, you are knocking down many potential competition heading into the 2020 election. also, texas is a -- it's a safe state for republicans. so they wouldn't have a problem trying to get another republican senator elected there. it would be smart. i would be interested to see how his fellow republicans and democrats, how they receive that
potential of him being attorney general. >> we just heard that rudy giuliani was making his way to trump tower this afternoon, a few minutes ago or so. there's a lot swirling around rudy, attorney general, secretary -- he wants to be secretary of state. your thoughts? >> he is the textbook definition of a happy warrior. the kind of person that reminds me of jack kemp and ronald reagan. somebody who could put a smile on what you would call stern principals. the stereotype of the republican is the unhappy, sober, cold water in the face person. whenever you saw giuliani, he was never not smiling. he could make you laugh while talking about serious things. i think the reason why this is taking longer, people think it's taking longer, they are replacing people. they're not replacing an ideology. remember, there's no ideology in this administration. it could be that there's so much diversity of ideas, hence, the quarrels and time it takes.
i was thinking that if ted cruz was made secretary of state, he would be lying state. >> too much. by the way, before you go -- >> now we know when you got juan. >> here is an interesting thing. this fight because lisa talked about people need to be confirmed. you come to someone like john bolton, who is rudy's rival for the secretary of state. guess what? rand paul comes out and says never, never happening. rand paul is head of senate foreign relations. he says, bolton, strong supporter of the war in iraq, wanted the united states to wage war in libya. therefore, never going to happen. then when you come to rudy giuliani, people say i don't know if he can be confirmed because he has taken money from foreign governments and companies that do business over seas. this could be a mess. >> it could take time. i would agree with rand paul on john bolton. he is a brilliant guy but not
the time -- certainly not the type that donald trump said he would want leading his foreign policy. ati hn bolton is a real strong conservative. >> no question about that. but there are others. everyone thinks it's down to one or two. they are spending a lot of time vetting a lot of people. i think this is one of the smartest moves -- kellyanne conway is close to donald trump. reince priebus, think about -- he has one or two advisers and then this long list of really super important powerful positions that he has to place that has to be confirmed in the next 65 or so days. this is a monstrous task. i'm glad he is taking his time. >> look at his choice of picking governor pence as vice-president. if anyone has questions if he's going to make responsible choices, that was an incredibly responsible choice. choosing someone like indiana, look at indiana as a state, it's one of the lowest when you look at debt and unfunded liability from a person to person basis.
indiana has a surplus in the budget. th that choice should assure people that have concerns. >> what should we think about the fact that he had to slot christie? >> he is a business guy. >> what's the problem? >> there's a diversity of ideas amongst these people. mike pence has different ideas about certain things than rudy giuliani. you can't find two more different people on the conservative spectrum. you don't find that on the left. >> we are being wrapped several times. we went over. i apologize. relax, there's no disarray going on. it's all going to be okay. next, the last hour plea to president obama to prevent president-elect trump from following through on his immigration agenda. details when "the five" returns.
man: i accept i'm not the deep sea fisherman i was. i accept i'm not out on the ocean wrestling marlin. i even accept i have a higher risk of stroke due to afib, a type of irregular heartbeat not caused by a heart valve problem. but i won't go after anything with less than my best. so if i can go for something better than warfarin, i'll do that too. eliquis. eliquis reduced the risk of stroke better than warfarin. plus, it had significantly less major bleeding than warfarin. eliquis had both. that's what i wanted to know. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and, in rare cases, fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily. and it may take longer than usual
for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis make increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. i may not be going for the big one, but i'm still going for my best. and for eliquis. reduced risk of stroke, plus less major bleeding. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you. the medicare enrollment deadline is just a few weeks away. new plans could increase your benefits and lower your out-of-pocket costs. now is the time to find the coverage that's right for you ...at the right price. the way to do that is to explore your options. you can spend hours doing that yourself ... or you can call healthmarkets ... and let us do the legwork for you - with no cost or obligation. healthmarkets has access to thousands of medicare plans from nationally recognized companies. we find the coverage that's the best fit for you ... at a price that fits your budget.

as the new trump administration grows, mr. obama ducked aid question abo eed a q. some college and high school students have been staging protests against president-elect trump immigration agenda pushing their school to adopt sanctuary colle colleges. some sanctuary cities are pushing back. the mayor of santa fe last night. >> the important conversation that needs to happen today is how do we go forward? how do we create unified effort to address a broken immigration system at the federal level? it's wrong to penalize cities that have been welcoming and creating opportunities for all citizens. >> the argument is that it's a magnet for would-be criminals.
they think they have a better shot in a city like santa fe than in a city that's going to crack down on the presence of undocumented immigrants. >> it's an argument in false reality. study after study have shown that sanctuary cities do not lead to an increase in crime because of the presence of people that are undocumented. this is a broken federal system. >> is he part of the solution or part of the problem? >> trump? this guy? here is the thing. i'm one of those -- there are a lot of us who believe that a smaller federal government is better. send everything to the state. let the state decide. if you don't like what the state decided, move to another state. you take that one step down and you have a sanctuary city that resides within a state. if the city decides to break federal law, the feds should stop funding to the state and let the state get down on the individual city and say, you comply -- because the state is now losing benefits because of what you are doing in san francisco or l.a. or even houston might even be one as well.
so you stop the funding. put the pressure on the state and let the state put the pressure on the individual municipality to stop breaking the law. period. it's very simple. we'll all save money. >> all right. what do you think? obviously, this is a big issue. you are now seeing both sides stack up. >> sanctuary city is mitting m h. i want to talk about the student walkout. i think a student school walkout is too easy to make a point. so you are really mad? i'm not going to school. the prefe the professors should dock you for that. if you feel so strongly about an issue, don't walk out. walk into an ocean, a very, very cold ocean and don't return until you are covered with seaweed and perhaps jellyfish sores. then -- >> are they alive at that point? >> someone will pee on them. then i would respect their
stance, their sick, sick stance. did you figure out where the h goes? >> after the c. >> charming. >> what do you make of this? do you stant with td with the m santa fe and those that support sanctuary cities? >> ababsolutely. what's important is keeping crime down. we want to keep crime down. we don't want to remove people here as legal immigrants, out of the crime process, because they're afraid of talking about crimes being committed by people who may be or may not be illegal immigrants and starting that hysteria. let's deal with the crime problem. the one that's caught my ear was when you were talking about the pressure on president obama to issue the mass pardons. 750,0 >> 750,000. >> people who were brought here as children and who the president said no longer are
subject to deportation. the question is, does donald trump go forward and say, yes, they are going to be deported to, which comes into breaking up families that i find -- i saw paul ryan said with regard to deportation, just not going to happen. he's not going to play ball with that. >> he can't grant citizenship. >> you have a republican in charge of the house, the senate and now the white house. i think you will see a lot of the fights. and especially when it comes to the idea of mass deportation. >> they can't issue them citizenship or make them legal. i would stay out of that. >> i think donald trump should do exactly what he prom ised he would do. that's crack down the illegality when it comes to immigration. not too long ago thecustto customs said it's the new norm. when you do what president obama did, blanket amnesty, you are
sending a message to individuals coming from central america and mexico it's open season, it's free game to come to the united states. you are going to be protected. immigration was on the ballot. donald trump ran a campaign cracking down on illegal gity, cracking down on border surges. hillary clinton said she was going to give blanket amnesty. if you look at the democratic and republican convention, the contrast was clear. donald trump had the parents whose children were killed by illegal immigrants on stage talking about those horrific crimes that happened to their family. hillary clinton had illegal immigrants and gave them a voice and stage at her convention. the contrast was very clear to voters. they obviously chose cracking down on illegal immigration. >> i don't think that's right. i think the polls right now show most persons think unless you are involved in crime, most believe there should be a path
way. >> that should be followed. not to go around the law and cheat. >> we need to fix -- that's what the mayor of santa fe is saying. >> okay. get on it. a broken democratic party needs your help. they are struggling to regroup after last tuesday's devastating election dedefeats. nancy pelosi is facing a problem. she's trying to down play the possible effort to oust her. hear what she had to say when fox news caught up with her next. when it comes to healthcare,
seconds can mean the difference between life and death. for partners in health, time is life. we have 18,000 people around the world. the microsoft cloud helps our entire staff stay connected and work together in real time to help those that need it. the ability to collaborate changes how we work. what we do together changes how we live.
yesterday republicans moved quickly to nominate paul ryan for another term as house speaker. the speaker expressed optimism by the way about uniting the gop. >> welcome to the dawn of a new unified republican government. feels really good to say that, actually. this will be a government focused on turning president-elect trump's victory
into real progress for the american people. our team is very excited. we cannot wait to get to work. >> democrats can't say the same right now. they have delayed a vote on whether to keep nancy pelosi as house minority leader. they will have that vote after thanksgiving. are they buying time to find someone new for her job? our capitol hill reporter caught up with pelosi yesterday. here is what she said. >> what does that mean? there are -- >> not very much. we will be out for thanksgiving. the rest of this week we will go over some issues. >> there will are some people who say you got beat badly here. >> that speaks to the presidential race more than our race. >> greg, you have a situation where nancy pelosi is in her 70s. the house leadership on the democratic side, rather old. then you have a bunch of young whipper snappers on democratic side. >> in their 60s. >> many of them 50s and 60s
saying, time for a change. we need a new message. they want more energy coming from democratic leaders during the trump presidency. >> the democrats are in huge trouble for one reason. they're losing the best thing they ever had, president barack obama. it was a one-man show. he made the worst possible ideas seem kind of okay. it's like the democratic party is like dirty harry without harry. it's just dirty. they don't know what to do now. when you lose your best salesman, all you got is product stuck in the garage. >> let's take a look at one of the people who might be challenges nancy pelosi, congressman tim ryan of ohio. >> there's a real appetite in the country for a new democratic party. look, the obamas are gone, the clintons are gone, the bidens are gone, harry reid is done. we don't have anyone at the dnc. the house leadership race is really an important signal to many democrats, independents and
moderate republicans of what the new democratic party looks like. >> you hear tim ryan there. he is from ohio, rust belt state. he says this is a new way for the party to appeal and people to talk. he said, he can go into southern states and do it. >> if you are a democrat, which i am not -- >> really? >> fif you are a democrat and looking at someone like nancy pelosi who has been in leadership through historic losses, 2010, 2014, 2016 -- >> why did you forget '12? >> why does she deserve to be in leadership? there are so many people in the mainstream media and the left that were saying republicans are going to enter into the wilderness because of a donald trump presidency. guess what? he won. republicans won states they haven't won since 1984. now it's the democratic party that is entering the wilderness, trying to figure out who is going to be their future leader. >> let me follow up on something you said. why should nancy pelosi continue to be leader? >> she shouldn't. >> she says two-thirds of her
caucus endorsed her. >> i hope they do. i would like to see them continue to lose. >> her argument is -- and their support is based on the idea that since 2002, she has raid e $568 million. >> she saw losses under her leadership. the democratic party is trying to figure out, especially after the shellacking they just received on tuesday, trying to figure out what's next for the party and the danger for the left is the fact that you are going to have bernie sanders and elizabeth warren types that are going to hijack the party. >> there are -- eric, i would go to you on that. in the senate they have elected charles schumer to be the senate minority leader and behind him you are going to have people like patty murray of washington state, dick durbin, but elizabeth warren and bernie sanders coming into the top of the democratic fold in the
senate. >> the democrats -- the gop opened up a can of whoop-ass on the democrats over four of the last five election cycles. when a team is losing, you change the coach. you don't sell the team. you change the coach. the coach isn't leading. leadership in the democrats -- look, they were hoping -- they needed 30. they were hoping to get 12. they got six. they lost. they continue to lose the senate. this one, republican governors are 62% of the governors in america. the republican party has taken over the country. the ideology of conservatism has spread. it's time to change. the best thing that tim ryan said is out with them. it's out with -- >> yeah. he said -- he got a message that is important right that they should listen to if they fall back on -- there's one reason why they would keep pelosi. she has leverage over them
because she's the money -- >> that's what i was saying. >> that's the bottom line. she raises money. people who don't want her in are pledging support. she released that letter as a shot across the bow to say, don't come against me because she's infamous for punishing those that try and go against her. look what she did before in the past elections with blue dog democrats that didn't tow the line. if you want to bleed out all over the emergency room floor, keep her in. >> do you think in fact democrats did win the popular vote here, are they panicking unnecessarily? >> they should panic. the only people they have in the democratic bench right now -- they have obama is the last democrat left standing after this. he has six weeks left. if you think you are going to win the white male vote with somebody like elizabeth warren, wow. >> if you don't want someone to win an election, go vote. right? try to stop them. not rye yacht. guess what?
a lot large number of the people who are anti-tremors arrested in oregon didn't even cast a vote last tuesday. details ahead when "the five" returns. you totaled your brand new car. nobody's hurt, but there will still be pain. it comes when your insurance company says they'll only pay three-quarters of what it takes to replace it. what are you supposed to do? drive three-quarters of a car? now if you had liberty mutual new car replacement™, you'd get your whole car back. i guess they don't want you driving around on three wheels. smart. with liberty mutual new car replacement™, we'll replace the full value of your car. liberty stands with you™. liberty mutual insurance.
there were five straight nights of violent protests in portla portland, oregon, following the election of donald trump. rioters caused more than a million dollars in property damage while protesting a democratic and fair election. 112 were arrested and get this, at least 79 of them didn't even vote in oregon or they are not registered to vote as well. that's according to a portland tv station that combed through state election records. if you are going to protest a vote that didn't turn out the way you wanted it to, you might want to try voting yourself, next time. >> exactly. this is what we knew all along. i hope soros is happy with his purchase. these are people who have nothing to do about donald trump. they're trying to get out there. they don't live in oregon. they're trying to cause racial unrest and trying to impede any possible implementation of
donald trump's proposals that were resoundingly approved by the voters across this country. so all they're doing is hurting those communities and the states they come in by creating this mess out there. it's sad. >> let me say two quick points. what happened in portland is not representative protests we have seen across this nation. it's not one place and some violence which is totally wrong. there have been protests -- i think it's legitimate for people who are scared, petrified in some cases of what the trump presidency can bring. >> why didn't they vote? >> i couldn't agree more with the point that if you have a problem, you should have voted. i can't believe -- that's ridiculous. >> what does it say about the protesters if they didn't even vote? >> they're rioters. they're agitators. >> they're criminals. >> right. they are breaking the law. the constitution protests your right and privilege to vote and to protest. fine. you have the obligation or not
to do one or both or neither. they didn't vote. they are allowed to protest. when they break the law and they break windows and cause property damage -- >> lock them up. >> they lost the rights. remember when president obama before he was elected said, i'm going to -- we're going to change the united states of america and then we elected him? there were people who as you point out worried, scared, nervous about what the next four, eight years was going to bring. there weren't protests. >> not like this. obama didn't run a trump-like campaign. >> what do you think? >> i'm more interested in how the media covers this. the fact that they conflate violence as protest, because for the greatest good, you can break things. it's okay. in the context of this year of the amount of riots that have gone on, they have -- people have encouraged it as a response. number two, when they come up with hate crimes, the hundreds and hundreds of hate crimes, swastikas, when they were unproven, when it turns out they
juan. >> as you know, last week we celebrated veterans day. over the weekend, i had a great time. i had a chance to dine with the oldest living survivor of pearl harbor. the 104-year-old was honored by the spirit of liberty foundation as part of the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the attack on pearl harbor. that will be december 7, this year. he lives in san diego. he was able to travel to d.c. for the national veterans day ceremony at arlington. he was honored with a senatorial proclamation. from me to you, here is thanks. you came to washington and showed a new generation of sailors and army what it means to demonstrate long life for a life long patriot. congratulations. >> very nice. >> very nice. >> just as this transition occurs, you hear about all the protests and whatnot and all the interest that is surrounding the new transition from the obama
administration to the trump administration, a couple of pictures i snapped today. these people, fbi, secret service, nypd, different police departments in different cities keeping the peace, keeping the peace on the street. they waear the kevlar so you don't have to. >> absolutely. >> here is a new thing we're doing. roll it, please. is kimberly single? news. wherever anybody on "the five" goes, the men ask, is kimberly single? including howard stern today. he went that way. >> what about that -- she's married or not? >> i think she's single. yes, she's single. >> how could she be single? >> she's a busy, successful person. >> she's a lawyer, too. >> yes. she's a lawyer. she's a tough cookie. >> maybe i need to come on that show and find out really what's going on.
>> that would be amazing. that would be the best thing ever. i think it would be amazing. that guy watches "the five" every single day. >> he loves us all. all five of us. >> he does. he sees us as his only friends. that's what he said. >> what you told me, i hold no offense to that. i love you, howard. >> come on show. he has to come on here. >> you interrupted juan. >> you think i interrupt juan too much? >> shut up, juan. >> i will say this. howard would have to sit here. then -- stay be me. >> indeed. come do the investigation. we would love it. a sanitation crew in long island, speaking of single and married news, recently recovered a woman's lost wedding ring after digging through six tons of trash for nearly four hours. she accidentally threw out her rings after cooking sunday night dinner, realized they were missing the next morning,
contacted them. she ran out of the house, chased down the truck and the driver. he chased down the crew. they dug and lo and behold, they found her rings. how exciting is that? she showed her appreciation by baking brownies, buying pizza, cookies for the team. what a wonderful story. i'm happy you got your rings back. that's why you shouldn't take them off. >> unless you are kimberly. >> and you put them all in a safe deposit box. >> exactly. lisa. >> suck it up, buttercup, is what a state representative from iowa is sending to state universities and the students this they are coddling. >> that's a waste of taxpayer dollars. that doesn't prepare kids for life. in life, there's winners and losers. in life, when your car breaks down, your kids get sick or you take a second job to pay your mortgage, you don't go to a cry zone, you don't pet a pony. you have to deal with it. >> i like this guy.
essentially in short what his legislation does is cut budgets for universities that are going above their budgets for grief counseling and also cracking down on criminality. >> "special report" up next. waiting for president-elect trump to say, you are hired. his transition team under fire for not being ready for prime time pushes back hard. this is "special report." good evening. welcome to washington. i'm bret baier. it has been eight days since donald trump was elected to be the 45th president of the united states. one week and one day. it took president-elect obama nearly three weeks after election day in 2008 to announce his first cabinet choice. it took president-elect ronald reagan five weeks in 1980. president-elect carter, fou
