police officers. >> this officer was a husband, he is a husband, he has three children. he was protecting our streets. he was shot twice in the face without provocation. he didn't deserve this. he was targeted because he was a police officer. this tells you how dangerous of a job it is and how much we have to appreciate our police officers. >> the st. louis sergeant is in critical condition this morning but is expected to survive. two other officers shot overnight. one in san bell, florida and the other in gladstone, missouri outside of kansas city. they were both shot during routine traffic stops. they're expected to survive as well this morning. ainsley, back to you guys. >> thank you so much, clayton. >> it's awful. the chief in san antonio where that officer was shot dead in the ambush, he compared it to what happened to the men down in dallas and also what happened in the past year in baton rouge. >> in st. louis, he was clearly

3:07 am
couch talking to pete hegseth about it. i said what do you think of general mattis. he said he's an amazing guy. i hope he gets the position. >> he is an amazing guy. he replaced david petraeus as the commander of senn come known as mad dog mattis, married to the marines. he's a guy who has a colorful history. apparently never owned a television in his life. but he has had some unbelievable quotes. we're going to share a couple of them with you just to put into perspective the man who could be our next secretary of defense. >> all right. you are part of the world's most feared and trusted force. engage your brain before you engage your weapon. another one was be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet. which is interesting. everybody prepares for meetings differently. >> experienced with islamic terrorists. he told a group that if he messed with him, he would kill all of them. tough guy. >> we'll see. will he be the next defense

3:18 am
they certainly have. >> governor romney, he's on the record, he has been for years recognizing that the russians have a national agenda, that is in many ways contrary to the united states. what the united states is trying to do in the middle east and eastern europe. it's a threat to nato, et cetera. mitt romney is sort of the -- he's the consummate diplomat, too. many people in the senate like him from both sides of the aisle. so he sort of has a softer touch. he's more nuanced and careful with his words. so president-elect trump might decide that mitt romney might be the way to go, especially if he's got some -- >> he likes his look. the problem is donald trump disagrees as of now with his view on russia, even though it looks like mitt romney is closer to the truth. the problem is that these two couldn't have been ruder to each other about the foundation of each other's character. >> that's true. that makes it interesting as well. i mean, i think that if he went
3:19 am
with governor romney, he's going to show everybody else he doesn't have the thin skin that a lot of the media and the left try to paint him as petty and sort of having this vendetta against political enemies. if he went with mitt romney, he's going with somebody who is the best for the country. >> he's got to represent donald trump's policies and he says he doesn't agree with them. rudy giuliani has an aggressive world view but similar to donald trump. >> much more similar, that's right. >> they both hate the iran deal. and they both -- one was against the iraq war and one was for the iraq for. rudy is still for it. >> rudy giuliani, he has said his foreign policy priority is going to be fighting isis. he's critical of the iran deal and governor romney is as well. he's going to be a tougher nut to crack getting through the senate because of his foreign ties. that's going to be a harder process. >> that might be interesting. you can't forget about governor nikki haley in contention.
3:20 am
rebecca hine ricks, thanks so much. fighting around the holidays, it's already a nightmare and about to get worse starting today. donald trump demanding an apology from the entire cast of hamilton. >> we, sir, are the diverse america, who are alarmed and anxious that your new administration will not protect us. >> should the kasa apologize? we'll debate it and sing about it. for the holidays. before his mom earned 1% cash back everywhere, every time.

3:28 am
audience a political, racist lecture. you know what the actors need to do, they need to act like actors. they need to shut up, perform the play, take the curtain call, the bow, thank the audience for coming and walk off the stage. there's other forums for them to express political activism. as it was said earlier, it was rude to the vice president, the next vice president of this country. it was absolutely the wrong forum, period. >> i read a little bit up on you. i saw how you were excited about sessions -- >> you read up on me? right, sessions. >> can i talk, please? >> no, don't say that -- >> okay. >> senator sessions actually has advocated for civil rights. civil rights for blacks to have jobs so illegal immigrants don't have jobs. when he was a.g. in alabama made

minority leader, what kind of changes will you bring that she doesn't have on the table right now? >> i think emphasis, we talk about minimum wage, but people don't want a minimum wage. i am for an increase in the minimum wage. people want a middle class job and have a solid pension, be able to go on vacation and then also have the work life balance to where they're not working 80 hours a week to make ends meet. i think within our caucus, we're not tapping into the talent that we have in our caucus. people feel bottlenecked like they don't have an opportunity. we need to raise the profile of the young democrats and give them a platform to be rock stars in our party. >> you're talking about bread and butter issues, things to put money into people's pockets. the big question, though, tim, is this. are you willing to negotiate with the republicans? you look at nancy pelosi and harry reid over the last number of years. they seem sto have been obstructionist. nothing got done in the u.s.
3:49 am
senate. >> it depends on what the issue is. i've said this before. if donald trump is going to defund planned parenthood, privatize medicare, simply cut taxes for the top 1% and throw people off their health care, he's going to be in a street fight with the kid from the youngstown area. >> what about ininfrastructure, what about a jobs -- >> if we're going to get people back to work, we're going to sit down and talk to him. what i've been reading is it may be gimmicky, i haven't seen the details. i don't want to comment too much. if we're going to get working class people back to work, building things, moving and making america the advanced manufacturing capital of the world where we're exporting things and people are making things and we can drive those jobs bo coal country and places like youngstown, ohio, we're going to talk and make that happen. that's the direction we can go in. if he doesn't, if he goes down another direction, he's going to
3:50 am
have a fight on his hands. >> ultimately, that's negotiation, isn't it? >> sure. yeah. i mean, that's the process. >> that's the process. >> i'm laying out for my colleagues the fact that we don't have to give away our values or our principles. i'm willing to take trump on. i spent my life coming up through a pretty rough area politically. i know how to do that. but we also need a positive vision for where we're going. it's about the middle class jobs, it's about the people in youngstown who have had a rough time making ends meet because of the national, i think what's happened nationally. >> the big election in the democratic caucus is november 30th. tim ryan of ohio, good luck to you, sir. thank you very much. >> nancy pelosi, if you'd like to make your case, we've got three hours a day. he was deployed to iraq and afghanistan.

him and work with him? william smith is the first african-american chief of counsel on a committee that sessions hired him. let's start with those allegations that they made that he has said some racist things that cost him a judgeship back in the 1980s. what do you say about that? >> i say that the people who are making these allegations don't know jeff sessions. they don't have a history with jeff sessions. if you look at these allegations from 1986, they come from a witness who has been digs credited. if it didn't happen. if you look at 1996, 2016, no allegations against jeff sessions. these people are just bringing up false rumors, just because they don't the policies jeff sessions is going to bring. >> well, that's the way politics is these days. you know, the people on the other team want to blow up the

incoming president's cabinet one by one when they can. apparently, when he was a u.s. attorney, jeff sessions desegregated the schools in alabama and he got the death penalty for the head of the kkk in that state, right? >> that's exactly right. so when it comes down to the issues, if you look at jeff session's history, he did prosecute the head of the kkk. made sure that he received the death penalty. he desegregated the schools in alabama and i think you might have a picture about john lewis and jeff sessions walking hand in hands across the raymond pettis bridge. that's a high profile jeff sessions doing what people expect him to do. the low profi, i know him as the person who hired me as the first african-american to serve on the

committee. senator sessions reached out to senator schumer and clinton and said hey can you come and visit these kids? never got any response from them. he called me up and said, hey, i would like for somebody to come up and visit these kids to try to inspire them. he called me. he said do you think if you can get jeff sessions up here. i talked to senator sessions about it. we went up and intent a lot of time with these kids. we didn't send out any press releases. not a high profile case. this is something he did. never got any publicity on it. he's an outstanding guy. >> during your time with him, did he ever say anything that offended me personally? >> never. well, one time he told me he was going to vote for eric holder. >> sir, thank you for joining us live today. >> thank you for having me.

clinics to life in st. louis. here to react is former nypd detective bo deeddle. these aren't incidents. these are intended shootings. >> first of all, my deepest sympathy goes out to these officers and families. this is a plague across our country. this is 129 killed this year already. that's police officers killed across the country. when i'm calling out to our new president-elect, it should be a federal crime when you kill a police officer and you should be open for the death penalty. >> can you get law and order by a statement and stance from the white house? can that trickle down to the cities where this is taking place? >> well, we've got a new guy coming into washington. donald j. trump, our new president, and i will guarantee you i've been involved with donald from the beginning, and one of the things about police officers, donald is one of the greatest supporters of the police and you are not going to
4:26 am
see none of this nonsense going on which has been the last eight years across the country. when you have a president in the white house that says nothing but will say something when there's a questionable shooting of a black man, all of a sudden he goes and opens his big mouth. why isn't he say anything about these poor police officers? when those five officers were killed in dallas and others in louisiana. now we have to step up. it could be a federal crime and he should make it a federal crime and he can if you kill a police officer, you should be put up for execution. >> let's switch gears now and talk about another law enforcement issue. it looks like one of the priorities of this administration is going to be to rid this country of sanctuary cities. to make the cities do it, they will cut federal funding. what will that do? you think that is necessary. >> in new york city, i'm a candidate, i'm running as the democratic nominee for mayor of new york city. >> wow. >> this is going to come into play. my feelings are if you commit a
4:27 am
crime, you are illegally in this country, bye-bye, you get them out of the united states of america. nobody should be able to commit a crime who is illegal in this country and stay. that's one thing. number two is as far as deportation, i really believe we have to identify who is here. what is the problem with knowing who is in our city? whether they are illegal or legal? i want to know where who they are. i'm not sitting here i want to deport 11 million people. i'm saying we must identify the people who are here. >> you are not saying kick everybody out. here's mayor de blasio. a man you want to replace. >> this is a very substantial undertaking. it will take substantial resources, and we will begin the conversation with the federal government shortly on reimbursement for the nypd. we think it's a very valued situation to turn to the federal government for the maximum
4:28 am
possible reimbursement for those costs. >> that sound bite was about the amount of money that it's costing to protect donald trump. >> you and i have a thought on that. i believe the federal government should pick up the tab to protect donald trump in new york city. this is the president of these united states and we must protect him and his family and the costs should be pick up by the federal government and shouldn't be pushed upon the new york city police department. i do agree with one thing. that's the only thing i agree with de blasio on. >> and donald trump to his credit did have a 45-minute meeting with him. >> i would have liked to have been a little birdy on the wall on that meeting. i know donald trump. he doesn't take nothing from nobody. that's president-elect donald trump. >> it's chaotic in mid town between the tree and donald trump on fiskt avenue, it's tough to get around here. >> i still can't believe it.

4:47 am
about my thoughts and my world view on america and how we make america great again. >> explain what happens. he comes through the front door. he opens the door, you go in. where do you go? >> we went to a conference room at this beautiful facility. it was reince priebus and steve bannon, both are friends of mine, who i know well. we sat down and heard the president's vision for america. i got to talk about my issues, how to break generational poverty, how to allow kids who are in failing kids have more choice where they want to go. redefine compassion. what we talked about was how we redefine compassion with the number of people we get off of welfare. encourage people work like we did when i was speaker in the house of oklahoma, to require 20
4:48 am
hours a week. >> republican from oklahoma. you have a wife and two kids. >> i do. >> a lot of people are saying donald trump needs to choose some african-american individuals, people of diversity, that have diverse backgrounds, people are accusing him on the left of being racist. what are your comments after meeting him? this is your second time meeting him. what do you think about donald trump? >> raise your hand if conservative and you haven't been called a racist. it's what the left has done forever. when i left that meeting, more than anything, i was humbled to be there, when you look at the talent he was amassing, but what struck me the most, when i left, i was optimistic about the future of america. once again, we can dream big. it's okay to dream big about not settling for second place and i was really optimistic about the future of two my children. if they are going to grow up in an american that's not expected to be second place. that's not the america my parents knew. that's not the america my grandparents knew and i don't want my kids -- i want them to know that america can be first. not only can we compete, we can
4:49 am
start to win again. president-elect trump is amassing a great group to make that happen. >> he did tell us one thing before he got started, all those people you saw go in and out of the clubhouse yesterday. what was going on at the clubhouse yesterday? >> well, in addition to having these high-level -- i looked around at one moment, bob johnson the founder and ceo of black entertainment television was there. you had chris christie was there, and also in the room with me, we had mayor giuliani, but below us, outside, when you pull up, some poor young bride was getting married, so the clubhouse was still conducting business as usual, and it was probably inconvenient. 20 years from now, it will be a great story to tell, but at the memo to be upstaged on your wedding date. >> donald trump is trying to make marriage great again. >> we talked about forgotten americans. realizing at the end of every
4:50 am
policy decision there are men and women, single mothers who are trying to make ends meet and that's what i was excited to talk about. >> t.w. shannon, we'll look for you. maybe you'll have a place in the white house. >> i'll serve wherever the president asks. >> from the white house to the statehouse, the trump revolution has turned states across the nation from red to blue or blue to red. what makes this simple salad the best simple salad ever?

4:54 am
big night as well, including north dakota 33-year-old who turned state senate seat red after 24 years of democratic control. incoming north dakota state senator mr. scott meyer, i should say senator scott meyer joins us now. how does that sound? >> it sounds great. still sinking in. >> how did this happen? 24 years the democrats held that spot. >> i got approached by our district chairman and he reached out and said we haven't had a full ticket in 20 years. we had two representatives. two solid candidates. we put together an effective campaign, tried to earn that vote on november 8th came out with two seats. >> why do you think you won? >> accessibility, i would say. there are disenfranchised voters. we got out and asked them what their concerns are. sometimes they feel like their voice isn't quite being heard, so i feel like again getting in
4:55 am
front of them and letting them know who we are. >> did you work harder than your challenger? >> i would say yes. the one thing i say is hubris and hubrisistic attitude. new voice and face here. >> she was in public office for 14 years. >> right. >> and you beat her. so the democratic party reaction is i think that the biggest factor is what happened nationally, deeply impacted our state. when things like that happen, you recognize that it was out of your control and you regroup and you look toward the future. they are saying it was out of their control. >> i guess they could say that. there is a trump effect, obviously, but you still have to work. it's still campaigning. you are still doing your mailers, you are still fundraising and in our districts in north dakota, you have to get out and door knock. it's pounding the pavement. this didn't just happen because of trump. i poubl appreciate him and he brought voters out but we still
4:56 am
have had to work. >> this happened in europe and presidential election and local elections too. were you shocked? >> i honestly thought it was a 50-50 for me to win. it was a little shocking and once trump's states starting going down to north carolinas and pennsylvanias, that party got a little bit more fun. we had a good time and it's an amazing accomplishment for not only myself but like steve and jake we had five and six seats in grand forks. >> 33-year-old. are you the youngest senator? >> i'm not. there are four of us that are all 33, but i turn 44 in session. i like to -- 34 in session. i like to get away for my birthday. i'm not married. i'll spending in bismarck. >> 33 was a great year for me.

5:06 am
transparency. he's been somebody who has been very transparent throughout. a man of the people. president-elect of the people. and what do we have to hide? he's meeting with very diverse group of people. probably dozens in the last two weeks alone from all backgrounds, all races, eth nis its, obviously both genders. most people who meet with him are not going to be in his cabinet. they have all given their advice. >> they are not to get a job? >> we need to fill 4,000 jobs in the federal government and there are people who are captains of industry, there are folks who are sitting and former governors, members of congress, senators, there are people who are opinion leaders. folks working on an issue for decades and now they have an opportunity to share with the president-elect what that means for the country. >> one of your landing teams was the kpi and -- economy, and mitt
5:07 am
romney, there are rumors he could be in that position, could that be the case? >> for economics? i think they had a very far-reaching conversation about the world, global affairs, and economy, they are both accomplished, successful job creators in this country. that's unusual for people in politics. and much of what mitt romney said about our nation's economy and what he said about the world in 2012 against president obama has become true. there is a great deal discussed, mutual respect, and a productive conversation, but it's really up to president-elect trump to form that cabinet who he feels will work together and really implement his vision. he's been very clear-and-by about his first 100 days. so much to do. i suspect you are going to see a flurry of activity. divided government is over. things will actually happen in
5:08 am
washington. >> you were in the room when trump met with romney. was it awkward? >> i was not in the room for that. i was there when he came and i was part of the larger room. i left for a seven-year-old's dance recital. play, actually. >> priorities. >> yes, i do. it says an awful lot about donald trump. he has faced an unprecedented deluge of criticism, particularly from people in his own party, and it's honestly to me it shows you the great character and his skills as a leader that he can set that aside to do the business of the people and form a government. >> let's talk about the business of the people. the word is the first 100 days, you are going to put together a trillion dollar infrastructure package. if that is indeed true or the number, how is it paid for?
5:09 am
is it paid through tax reform? through deficit spending? >> he has talked a little bit about that and he will be consulting with experts about how to pay for it, but one thing that he has committed to do is make sure that his measures do not bust the budget, bust the deficit, brian, how and why? because lots of people promise all these goodies and they never tell you by the way you are going to pay for it, even if you can't use it or the way it's done or it's overbudget. his entire life, including the new old post office building, under budget, ahead of schedule. he wants to run the government similarly. that infrastructure proposal that you are referring to has -- we received a great deal of excitement from across the aisle about it. maybe people who don't agree with other policies or his core political philosophy or ie deloling are truly excited. >> democrats are. >> we've heard from so many people across the country. they say what concerns me the bridges, the roads, the tunnels,
5:10 am
the local thoroughfares. we know we have the gas tax that's supposed to go for that. >> a director of an organization that's committed to responsible budgeting says that this president-elect is inheriting the worst economy since truman in terms of the deficit balance. it is not a healthy economy. >> no. it took decades to get that deficit to 10 million and recently we took the last eight years to tack on the extra nine or so. tells you an awful lot. there's literally a price to be paid after the fact for all those goodize that sounded so wonderful. people are not just excited about the positive or affirmative economic ideas, like creating the 25 million jobs and releasing energy and coal and shale and natural gas. they are excited about replacing obamacare because they have seen that's a huge budget buster.
5:11 am
people feel they have to buy government run health care or pay the penalty. neither is very free market. by the way, anybody is welcome to pull up, i think there's substantive issues and vision like that that carry the day and got him over 300 electoral votes. >> brian loves to watch this. he has been glud to his tv to see who is walking through the front door. >> it's like ten douning place. >> camp david, new jersey, awm weekend. i love it. would you tell him who is going to be walking in the door today? >> actually, they are back at the tower. >> government rick perry will be here formerly of texas and a former rival for the texas, governor mary fallon from oklahoma. >> i think heard for perry. >> or defense. energy. fallon, maybe interior. it needs to lead to working
5:12 am
together. she's a sitting governor, so he will be working with her and probably three dozen republican governors. this country not only elected republican president and vice president, gave them the house and senate and governorships and huge majority of the legislative chambers of the states. that's called a mandate. >> what about today? any big announcements today that you know of? >> so -- possibly. possibly. if we do or we don't. it's maybe later. that's up to president-elect trump but the fact is we're way ahead of schedule. at this point in 2000, we were three weeks away from knowing who the president was going to be, let alone who would be in his cabinet, gore or bush's cabinet and jimmy carter waited five weeks, reagan, four weeks. and they didn't have twitter and facebook. you got to get it right. >> i've heard it's all going to
5:13 am
be done between thanksgiving and christmas. >> that makes sense. he's a guy -- he has been doing this whole life. making decisions, weighing consequences, results, and taking people's counsel and making decisions. >> they have to work out where the business starts and the presidency starts? >> sure. but they are doing that. >> have they worked out. >> they have experts behind the scenes doing that. they have the adult children be the stewards oft business that business in the father's absence. it's a unique situation to have a businessman with so many holdings sent to the oval office. he's stwes the tens of millions of dollars. his children are right there. they are his colleagues and mentors and chief executives. >> have a very nice week. >> let's all be grateful. >> indeed. straight ahead on thissen month, a fox news alert, police
5:14 am
officers ambushed in their own patrol cars. the dispatch sound coming in. we'll play for it coming up next. just call it the un-american music awards. >> i love my husband, president barack obama. >> i love bruno mars. i don't know what color he is, so i can't deport him. >> kellyanne, are you laughing at this? the entertainment elite is bashing the president-elect and future first lady. did they take it too far? >> just go to broadway and play it safe.

everybody knows that general mattis is a great war fighter. would he be a great secretary of defense? >> look, brian, i think he's a strong pick, beloved by his marines, known as a warrior scholar. he's held commands dealing with the middle east and with nato. you know, i would love to see him have a strong deputy that was well versed in procurement, budgets, congress, and that whole side of the defense department but i think overall we have a leader that knows how to lead our men and women in uniform. >> he seems very consistent with donald trump's views, especially when it comes to iran and a way forward with isis. is that one of the reasons why i saw a very ebullient donald trump talking with mad dog mattis the other day? >> he's going to take a stronger stance against iran, he knows our enemies and allies discuss
5:27 am
strength. it was widely discussed he was pushed out early from the obama administration. >> why? >> he wanted to take a hard line against what iran was doing with its proxies in the region. he's going to be lined up with general flynn, mike pompeo at cia and what seems to be a harder line against what iran is doing in the region which is essentially trying to exert its influence across the middle east. >> how important in your mind from what you've seen is the secretary of state, secretary of dense -- defense and the president on the same page? how important is that and what is the downside of them all being very competent but also being disagreeable? >> the president having seen advice come into the white house, the president needs to receive different and conflicting views. that's actually a good thing for the national security process versus what we've seen under
5:28 am
this white house, which is a white house that micromanages the process and folk are feeding things into a vacuum, where it seems like the president and his inner circle have made up their mind. >> that's interesting. would you say petraeus is a good pick. >> i think he's a fantastic pick. either way, i think the defense department is in good hands. our soldiers and airmen are going to receive a great dose of leadership. >> so we're going to see if pay tray i couldn't say comes in this week. we believe he is. thank you for your insight. appreciate it. >> good morning to you. an oil pipeline protest spirals into an all-out riot, protesters setting fires and officers firing tear gas. and just call it the unamerican music awards. >> i love my husband, president

barack obama. >> i love bruno mars. i don't know what color he is, so i can't deport him. >> did they take it too far or is it funny? tucker carlson straight ahead. >> in your honor, i've been working on my first impression. i've been working on this all week, okay? ♪ ♪ see ya next year.

5:33 am
police department, we would like to present you a turkey. >> wow. >> the police department gave about 25 turkeys out. it's their way of showing how thankful they are to their awesome citizens. >> how great is that. speak of awesome, tucker carlson's new show at 7:00 p.m. eastern time is awesome. >> another great show was this weekend where we're all tubeside watching all of these prospective candidates for high-ranking executive jobs. there is chris christie, rudy giuliani, we saw mitt romney. what did you make of mitt romney who had very unflattering things to say about donald trump go up the stairs and do the same thing? >> it's remarkable. based on conversations i've had, it's serious. i believe they would prefer, actually, to have mitt romney as
5:34 am
secretary of state. i don't know if that deal will get done or not, but this is not just a head fake. it's absolutely real, and i think it's actually kind of telling. this is what the new president, new new president ought to do is enlarge the circle a little bit, and the winner ought to be magazine nan mouse. this is a great sign. no one was a more bitter critic than mitt romney and intra-party fuds are the angriest and leave the deepest wounds. if he can pull this off. >> i wonder if you can get past the point where mitt romney called him a fraud and a fake and he's going to bankrupt the country. he actually picked a guy to run against him in utah that could keep trump from being president. and also mitt romney's view of russia is quite different from
5:35 am
donald trump. >> i don't think romney voted for him. i don't know that. i think it sends a reassuring message that this is a president -- you know, if this happens, and if this continues, this is a president who is confident in his role, and that's, again, a comforting message i think to a lot of people watching. >> let's talk about the press's coverage of trump. i love this article. kyle smith wrote an article in the "new york post" it's pretty funny. he says you've been barveing -- barfing all over yourselves for a week and a half. it's revolting to watch. wipe off your chins. pull yourselves together. >> when you said i don't like this word, i thought what word is it. >> barf is one of those words you don't want to say. >> especially at breakfasttime.
5:36 am
>> he goes on to make a very solid point. every administration needs vigorous press coverage. it doesn't matter who the president is. there's a massive federal government. you need a watchdog. if the press discredits itself as that watchdog, and every minor thing is a screaming page one headline, after a while, readers become so dulled to it all so they miss a real story in there. this is a corrosive effect. by the way, you know exactly what's going on, if you wrong someone, it's very hard to stop being mad at that person in a paradox i cal person. if you are the one who committed the unfair act, you have trouble getting over it. i think the press treated trump unfairly. it's difficult for them to pivot out of that mind set. >> it's not just the mainstream media when it comes to journalism. it's the mainstream
5:37 am
entertainment world. you know what happened to mike pence over at the hamilton show over the week and last night the american music awards on abc, it was just a great big trump bash-a-thon. here's a little bit of it tucker. watch this. >> i love my husband, president barack obama. >> i love bruno mars. i don't know what color he is, so i can't deport him. >> tucker, there are a lot of people on line who say gigi hadid, who was doing the melania trump impersonation, they say it's racist. what do you think of that? >> it's all pretty banal. here's what i'm struck about. the purpose of the artist is to elevate the individual above the group. you are seeing them act as enforcers of conformity and group think. get in line.
