3:00 am
good morning, everyone. it is sunday, november 27th. i'm sandra smith. a fox news alert as bourbon street erupts in gunfire overnight. at least one person killed in new orleans. nearly a dozen others injured. we'll bring you the very latest. what would hillary clinton say if someone questioned the integrity of democratic elections. >> that's horrifying. you know, every time donald thinks things are not going in his direction he claims whatever it is is rigged against him. >> but, wait, things didn't go in her direction and now her campaign that is officially saying it might have been rigged. >> oh, my gosh. president-elect gearing up
3:01 am
for a big round of meetings tomorrow as he fills his cabinet. who is he meeting with and is really considering a democrat for secretary of ostate? we will find out and we're glad you're here. good morning and mornings are better with friends. ♪ >> that's a great song. i forgot that song. broken out on the plaza out there. little chillier. >> we are actually going to be helping you decide how to pick a christmas tree out on the plaza. >> a real christmas tree. >> are you real or fake at home. >> we're real. >> well -- cut it down yourself recently. >> by the way, really fun to be with you guys this morning. >> you ran a 5 dk yesterday. >> she won. >> i ran the first mile way too fast, but it was a lot of fun.
3:02 am
>> but you beat a lot of people that are younger than you and older than you and everything. >> everyone got a trophy. >> i ran with a bunch of high school girls. you girls should be faster than this. it helped me pick up my fapace. donald trump is not afraid to tell us how he really feels about it. >> he's calling the efforts in wisconsin, michigan and pennsylvania ridiculous and a scam. >> garret is live in d.c. with more reaction to this. garret? >> good morning. you know, what's interesting here is that both green party candidate jill stein and the clinton campaign say they've looked into and investigated every report of hacking or vote tampering and found nothing. yet they are still moving ahead with this recount effort. at first, it was only signs, but now that wisconsin election officials have agreed to move forward, the clinton campaign is jumping onboard, as well. last night praesident-elect trup
3:03 am
responded saying the green party scam for asking for impossible recounts is being joined by the badly defeated and demoralized dems. stein raised more than $5 million to fund the recount effort. states where mr. trump narrowly beat hillary clinton. in a post on "medium" defended the campaign's decision her recount. writing, now that a recount is under way, we believe we have an obligation to the more than 64 million americans who cast ballots for hillary clinton to participate in ongoing proceed proceedings to ensure that an accurate vote count will be reported. now, the chances of this recount actually changing the election outcome are extremely slim to none, but many democrats are holding any hopes they can find the recount effort in wisconsin and expected to get under way late next week and in pennsylvania tomorrow and in
3:04 am
michigan on wednesday. back to you all. >> garret, thank you. this is quite a flashback. >> slim to none. the chances of it being effective, but the hypocrisy that is hitting a lot of people this morning. >> because of things that she said during the election season. and at one of the debates saying she was horrified when trump questioned the outcome of the election. >> chris wallace basically asked both candidates, you know, if you don't come out on top are you going to be able to be gracious about it. hillary clinton pounced when hillary clinton seemed to hesitate. >> let's watch and flash back to that moment when she said she would be horrified at what she is doing right now. >> donald said something, well, he said a lot of things that were troubling. but he said something truly horrifying. he became the first person running for president, republican or democrat, who
3:05 am
refused to say that he would respect the results of this election. n now, that is a direct threat to our democracy. that's horrifying. you know, every time donald thinks things are not going in his direction he claims whatever it is is rigged against him. that is not the way our democracy works. >> i love it's horrifying. >> so many things that are horrifying that other fake outrage. >> a threat to our demuckeracy. >> unbelievable. >> the other thing at work here the attorney for hillary clinton's campaign who posted about this yesterday in a blog admitted that they've been hearing all kinds of things about what might have happened in michigan or wisconsin, but admits we don't have any evidence they did anything wrong. in fact, the obama white house said in the last couple of days they don't believe that the results were hacked by the russians or anyone else.
3:06 am
even though they said the russians were trying to do this and involved in wikileaks they don't believe there was foul play. what are they doing? >> what is jill stein doing? by the way, she got less than 1% of the popular vote. but she's raising a lot of money. if you wanted it to look like a scam, what would a scam actually look like? we did the search and looked on her website and looked that fine print of what she's trying to do to raise all this money. if you dig into the fine print of what jill stein is doing and integrity in our election and making sure that every vote is counted. take a look at the fine print on her website where you can donate to this righteous cause. we cannot guarantee a recount will happen in any of these states that we're targeting. we can only pledge. pledge. we will demand recounts in these states. there are these pesky things called the law. >> they're getting that recount in wisconsin. but if you look at it, i think it's ten electoral votes.
3:07 am
it's not going to get hillary clinton to 270 and not going to get jill stein -- >> and how about the amount of money that she originally asked for. she had raised $4.8 million and then all of a sudden she starts raising the amount of money. the fund-raising goal is raised to $7 million and the original amount was $2.5 million. >> she originally said $2 million to $3 million. jill stein was tweeting up a storm about all of this yesterday. we'll get more into this later about fidel castro but said he was a symbol of the struggle of justice. so, this is her struggle for justice. >> the clinton campaign showing no evidence of the cyberattack and saying maybe there was. if you look in the fine print, as well, additional money, not just to this effort and the recount, but to the massachusetts green rainbow party, as well. you don't want to talk about a scam. a scam is when you say you're
3:08 am
doing one thing especially when you say you are not going to do what you're going to do. in pennsylvania you have to file and it has to be validated, as well. without wisconsin, michigan and pennsylvania, she can't bring trump below 270 anyway. >> we had somebody on tucker's show and we said, look, if you don't get a recount in all these states what are you going to do with the $7 million. the guy didn't have an answer. where is the money going to go? >> is the money coming from -- jill stein didn't raise anywhere near this in the campaign. is this money coming from hillary clinton backers. if hillary clinton was out there demanding herself a recount. >> that's the extra money they don't use will be used for other purposes. there's no giving that money back. >> hillary clinton is the one that made this an issue by saying we will sign on to the recount in wisconsin. >> you know where we need a recount is outside. i saw these beautiful trees out there and i saw rick eyeing one
3:09 am
of them like he was going to bring it back to his apartment. >> rick standing in front of the fresh, beautiful christmas trees on our plaza. >> i'm having my own green party out here this morning. by the end of the morning, we're going to convince everybody that they need a real christmas tree instead of a fake one. what is your thought on that? you can send me a message on twitter and send it to fox and these are beautiful and we'll tell you how to pick out christmas trees and keep them green all season long. let's look at the weather map and show you what is going on. if you're flying this morning heading to an airport early. i don't think we're going to be looking as good all day long. especially across parts of the west. energy pulled out across the west and move into areas around the four corners. east coast looking great except for lingering energy across parts of the great lakes. none of this will cause any problems in the airports and out across the west. half an inch of rain in los

imy moderate to severeng crohn's disease. i didn't think there was anything else to talk about. but then i realized there was. so, i finally broke the silence with my doctor about what i was experiencing. he said humira is for people like me who have tried other medications but still experience the symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease. in clinical studies, the majority of patients on humira saw significant symptom relief. and many achieved remission. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. if you're still just managing your symptoms, talk with your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, remission is possible.

3:16 am
president-elect donald trump has been busy he already filled some high posts but already has some choices to make for his cabinet. who will trump be meeting with and is he considering a democrat for secretary of state? here to break it down is tammy bruce. a lot of speculation has been who is that secretary of state going to be. really a romney versus giuliani, but, first, let's just mention the spots that he's already filled. >> obviously, chief of staff reince priebus, that's clearly a reach out to the republican establishment and that's a good choice because he knows everyone. steve bannon is not someone who has to be confirmed by the senate. jeff sessions, attorney general.
3:17 am
excellent choice there. michael flin, everyone has been an early endorser of president-elect trump. cia director, people are wondering where that would fit. that's a clear choice. betsy devos is inest thering to pe people. at first she made it she was for common core and the nikki haley choice for u.n. ambassador. very interesting. she withdrew her support for mr. trump and has no diplomatic experience and some people are wondering how that will work. >> she was very critical of trump. let's move on. secretary of state. where are we there? >> well, i think that the romney situation is not going to be happening already. kellyanne conway. kellyanne conway -- rudy giuliani has been at the top of the list. i think the concern has been his
3:18 am
business dealings perhaps. he would be fabulous. >> who is the democrat being considered there? >> we're looking at gabered's name that has come on. she was critical of barack obama and atoezed opposed to the tpp. obviously, mr. trump wants people with experience. people who can get the job done. >> that is himself putting a flag up the flag pole to see if anyone salutes. that name has come up. >> for one particular role or multiple roles? >> well, perhaps for almost any role. but his name has come up for secretary of state. i think they want to perhaps show -- >> we'll put him kind of over here. >> yeah. >> there's a lot of talent, clearly. the bench is deep here. >> let's talk treasury secretary john allison. >> what is interesting about him. he is a libertarian. i think he would be a great
3:19 am
choice. he was against the decision which was about property rights when they incli . he has been very vocal against obama care. perfect example of someone not in the system who fits what mr. trump already believes and what the tea party believes, as well. he would be very interesting. munchin has been mentioned at the top of the list but he's a big democratic party donor and i think donating to obama and hillary, it would be very strange to put him in that kind of position. >> deep goldman sachs roots. >> vice chair of the federal reserve. this is another one he's meeting with tomorrow. >> he's been advising and involved in the transition team and advising the president-elect. this is a man that you'll see perhaps at the sec or in a vice chair kind of position at the fed. so, as the that's the name you can watch for, but not
3:20 am
necessarily at the cabinet level. >> and rick perry. >> rick perry is an interesting man. one of the only two people who ran in the republican primary that had military experience. he and lindsey graham. i'd say defense secretary or even chair of the secretaries of veterans administration would be a good position for him, as well. >> let's finish up here with david clark. he will be meeting with him tomorrow. >> david clark has been mentioned for department of homeland security. and i think, though, when you're looking at people. this is the kind of department that needs national experience, everybody is a big fan of sheriff clark. but i think we're looking at a very likely position for him, probably not cabinet level. >> you have sarah pailen. >> she has not been mentioned a great deal these days, but good stuff. should u.s. senate represent. the heated debate on that is

good morning, again. we're back with some headlines. a security scare at trump tower. authorities arresting a man in the lobby of trump tower after claiming the president-elect called him asking him to speak to him immediately. the man was emotionally disturbed and did not pose a threat. he's undergoing an evaluation now. someone is wrapping up thanksgiving weekend with 421 million reasons to be thankful. a winning powerball ticket was sold in tennessee. chances of winning that were

only 1 in 290 million. so far, no one has stepped forward to claim the prize, although we'll see which hosts show up for "fox & friends" tomorrow. maybe one won't. a fox news alert. some republicans areu s are urg president obama to skip the funeral of long-time dictator fidel castro. should any u.s. representative attend the funeral? joining us for a fair and balanced debate is the director of hispanic outreach at the rnc and christina ariaga and also a fomm former assistant at the cuban american national foundation. helen and christina, thank you for joining us. should president obama send someone and if so, who? >> i'll tell you. thank you for the invitation this morning. i don't think that fidel castro is worthy at all of anyone
3:26 am
officially coming from the united states to attend his funeral. he has been a murderer, someone who has endorsed firing squads, theft of private property, political prisoners and has been a military dictator for more than 57 years. so, certainly not worthy of the leader of the free world to be going to see. we have diplomatic relations thanks to the obama administration with this government, then i suppose the u.s. ambassador could attend if we really need to have somebody there. but it sends a strong message to say this is a new day and a new age under president-elect donald trump. and we are going to be looking to get a concession from the cuban government on behalf of the people of cuba who should be sovereign and currently are not. >> christina, helen says no. let me read a quick tweet to you. under no circumstance should president obama or vp biden or secretary of state kerry go to cuba. he was a tyrant.
3:27 am
also another tweet from marco rubio issued a pathetic statement on the death of a dictator with no mention of the thousands he killed and imprisoned. #cuba. senator rubio was on our show and reiterated that he thinks nobody should go. christina, should the u.s. send a representative? >> absolutely not. that would be honoring the legacy of a man who has executed, tortured, incarcerated a larger percentage of the population. however, we cuban americans believe in verify where the president might consider sending the surgeon general just to make sure that fidel castro is really dead. >> verify. absolutely. other than the surgeon general, let's say we send somebody. if we don't, set back the ability to agitate for the political reform instead of not taking place. we have opened up normalized relations but the cuban regime
3:28 am
still maintains complete control. would it set us back at all? >> not at all. at too the contrary, it's telling the cuban regime that even though fidel castro's death really brings the dawn of possible new era. there is no question that there is a to talitarian government in place in cuba today. so, what we're doing is that we're also reinforcing that to t talitarian government and what president-elect donald trump has been very clear. there are three conditions that really need to be met in order for us to be able to provide meaningful change to cuba and that one is release of political prisoners. number two, american fugitives need to be returned to american justice system and there needs to be political and religious freedoms on the island. president-elect trump has been very clear. there's nothing wrong with negotiating, but we didn't get any concessions from the cuban government and it's not like
3:29 am
we're doing business with the cuban people. we're doing business with the cuban military who is in charge of and in control of all the economic mechanisms and of property in cuba. we really need to send a message that change has to come. >> sure. donald trump tweeted immediately. fidel castro is dead. a very different tone. he also said the deal we cut with them under barack obama was a bad one. what would you say, christina, as a first step that president-elect trump should take to push cuba in the right direction? >> fidel castro is dead and the castro regime is not. as his body was being prepared to be cremated, dissidents were getting arrested and human rights activists were being sent to prison. president-elect trump has to demand that there are free elections in cuba for the first time in 55 years. he has to demand that the castro brothers return to the cuban people the $800 million that they have stolen. and he has to demand that there
3:30 am
be freedom of speech and freedom of press. having destroyed in cuba. terror lives in cuba and terror has to be gone in order for the cuban people to be free. >> well said by both of you, helen and christina. a dictator may be dead but that does not mean authoritarian is dead. thank you, both, this morning. appreciate it. >> you're welcome. hillary clinton's campaign now officially making it it official. they think the election day may have been rigged. what difference does it make? our political panel, you see them right there, here to tell us next. imagine getting a call from the president-elect donald trump asking you to serve one of the highest roles in his administration. wait until you hear who just said no. i thought i married an italian.

3:39 am
hillary clinton told me. she told me this was a threat to democracy if you didn't accept the results. >> i guess she said she would only accept the results if she won. when it was clear she hadn't, she's willing to use jill stein as her go to achieve this. she is not willing to stand up and say she wants a recount and we know that joe podesta and donna brazille have been briefed on this and behind this push for jill stein to challenge the results. >> you're a democratic state senator in the great state of ohio. what's going on here? >> oh, my. well, i mean, honestly, i am a little bit beside myself at this point. jill stein has raised a bunch of money. what, $7 million at this point for the recount effort in wisconsin in particular. wisconsin only has ten electoral votes.'s like -- it's not going get her where she needs to be. so the fact that she's joining this effort is a little bit, you

3:46 am
four pilllets kiots killed in 1. we're sorry for your loss. want to ask you about that first. what happened on that day and what role did the regime play in that? >> the castro regime played the role of murderers. they premeditated the murder in international space and what happened was that my son left home in search to do a search and rescue mission. he was a volunteer pilot. a 24-year-old young man whose dream was to become a commercial pilot. and, so, he volunteered with brothers to the rescue in this very humanitarian organization to help those that were dying at sea in search of liberty and freedom in the united states. >> we're seeing pictures -- >> we're seeing pictures of your son there and amazing to hear your story.
3:47 am
one would wonder what your thoughts are now with the passing of fidel castro. >> the passing of fidel castro makes me feel at peace that one more tyrant has left this world. and he can do no more harm to innocent people. but there's still raul castro, his brother, who is just as evil. and who also destroys lives. and, so, there's no reason yet for me to celebrate. i think the celebration will be the day that cuba is free. >> so, the life of your son was taken in international air space. so, a fighter jet dispatched by cuba shoots down that humanitarian mission. but the suppression on the ground in cuba is ongoing. some say that raul loosened things a little bit. economic reforms will lead to political reforms. what hope do you have, if any,
3:48 am
that under raul or under a transition that cuba would open up to political freedom? >> i believe from experience that raul just wants to maintain power. the only time he opens up a little bit is because he needs something in order to stay in power. the oppression continues. in the last two years, there has been more arrests of anyone that speaks of freedom in the island. and there is just no real change in cuba. the only real change would be when raul castro is out of the picture, away from cuba. and all his machinery. >> what do you make of the response that you've seen from world leaders in the wake of fidel castro's passing, including united states president, barack obama? >> well, i think in the name of
3:49 am
politically correct, political correctness, people just don't speak the truth. they call raul and fidel castro a president. they haven't been elected, freely elected by the people of cuba. they're not president. they're dictators and they need to be called by their names. >> miriam, well said. when in reality life on the ground there has been harsh. worse than harsh for decades, including taking the lives of those trying to do the right thing. thank you for joining us this morning and sharing your story. >> thank you for having me. is america's investment in president-elect trump already paying off? what black friday is telling us about the incoming administration. plus, canada's prime minister praised castro as a remarkable leader. how did the internet respond to that?

black friday seeing green. the stock market closing at record highs last week. >> so is america's investment in donald trump already paying off? here to break it all down, the chairman of business and finance at the kings college in new york city. sounds like the early reviews say, black friday and into the weekend has been pretty strong. >> the stock market liked it. online sales have been foigs. thursday and friday up 18% relative to last year. in-store sales down a little
3:54 am
bit. black friday has become black november and december. >> i start getting e-mails from different places where i've shopped on tuesday before thanksgiving. you can start now, 15% off. they're trying to give stuff away. >> the cyber monday deals have started already. they're going it to offer deal after deal. sniemts you know ha you want and they'll send the deals to you. throughout november and december, we'll see sales up about 3.5%. >> apparently the stock market has seen eight records since donald trump's victory. are people attributing the stock market rally to -- consumer confidence is up. >> i think that's part of it. absolutely, this rally -- it's hard to say anything else is driving it except optimism. the question is now what he's going to do going forward. he has to turn this into execution and policy details. that's where the waters will get more choppy.
3:55 am
not just what you're saying. you have to deal with congress. >> the white house will say thank you very much for this stock market, thank you very much for this consumer confidence. we inherited something terrible eight years ago, now we're delivering it on a silver platter to donald trump. is that true? >> no, no. donald trump is inheriting a an economy -- we're going to get unemployment numbers this week and gdp numbers this week. that will tell us where the economy sits. >> growth has been nothing. >> growth has been very slow. we'll see -- the third quarter get revised. these are big questions. trump did not get a gift here. i think the rally is a part of what he's saying. >> what about the fact that interest rates are start to go tick up and hearing about oil prices go up when the economy hums a bit more. that means you pay more at the pump. >> savers will like interest rates going up. oil prices, don't look for them
3:56 am
to rise that much. we have a lot of supply out there. opec is trying to reach an agreement. i don't think it will be a strong agreement. >> in the wake of the donald trump victory, the u.s. dollar has strengthened. obviously, tie that in he -- >> tough for -- a couple things expected. questions about trade. what are the trade policies going to be like. interest rates going up drives the dollar up as well. it's tough for exporters. what's interesting is that smaller businesses have really fared well in the market over the past couple of weeks. business that is are less exposed to international sales. >> thanks for coming in. >> you bet. >> former residents of forest lake, minnesota. >> proudly. >> wow. hey, mitt romney tell us what you really think of donald trump. >> donald trump is a phony. a fraud. he gets a free ride to the white house and all we get is a lousy hat. >> whoa. >> ouch.
3:57 am
>> is he really finally ready to apologize to the president-elect. here with inside information coming up next. liberty mutual stood with me when i was too busy with the kids to get a repair estimate. i just snapped a photo and got an estimate in 24 hours. my insurance company definitely doesn't have that... you can leave worry behind when liberty stands with you™ liberty mutual insurance

same nose. same toughness. and since he's had moderate alzheimer's disease, the same never quit attitude. that's why i asked his doctor about once-a-day namzaric. (avo) namzaric is approved for moderate to severe alzheimer's disease in patients who are taking donepezil. it may improve cognition and overall function, and may slow the worsening of symptoms for a while. namzaric does not change the underlying disease progression. don't take if allergic to memantine, donepezil, piperidine or any of the ingredients in namzaric. tell the doctor about any conditions including heart, lung, bladder, kidney or liver problems, seizures, stomach ulcers, or procedures with anesthesia. serious side effects may occur, including muscle problems if given anesthesia; slow heartbeat, fainting, more stomach acid which may lead to ulcers and bleeding; nausea, vomiting, difficulty urinating, seizures, and worsening of lung problems. most common side effects are headache, diarrhea, dizziness

(avo) ask about namzaric today. good morning. it is sunday, november 27th. i'm sandra smith. this is a fox news alert. while you were sleeping. at least one person is dead, nearly a dozen more injured? the city of new orleans after gunmen spray bourbon street with bullets. the details straight ahead. >> what would hillary clinton say if someone questioned the integrity of our democratic election? >> that's horrifying. every time donald thinks things are not going in his direction, he claims whatever it is is rigged against him. >> she's no longer horrified. now that she lost her campaign, her campaign is saying the whole thing might have been rigged. >> uh-oh. >> the story is next.
4:01 am
forget the grinch. hipsters just stole christmas. say goodbye to a classic and hello to this. the nativity scene of the future. >> oh, boy. >> that's unfortunate. makes me sad. >> this show will not make you sad. mornings are better with friends. ♪ >> really no better way to spend the day than with wham. >> what a beautiful scene. those are christmas trees on the plaza. later, we'll help you decide on how to choose a christmas tree and trim one apparently. >> chop one, trim one. make sure you don't have a dead one. >> you cut down your own tree? >> you're from minnesota. don't you go to target and get the box. >> you can do that too. >> i go to my neighbor's and
4:02 am
tutt it down. >> i like those who have it decorated in the basement and carry it out upstairs. >> we have a lot of news too. >> yes, sir. >> jill stein say the election may have been rigds. >> garrett tenney is live in d.c. with more reaction to this story. garrett, good morning. >> good morning, sandra, ed and -- president-elect trump calling this nothing more than a scam for green party candidate jill stein to fill her coffers. this was in response to a handful of computer science experts who claim that a hacker could have potentially influenced the election. there has been no evidence to support that claim. stein says there's no indication that vote tampering took place
4:03 am
in these states but she's arguing a full recount is needed to reassure those with questions about the results. now the clinton campaign wants to join the recount effort as well. mr. trump responded last night in a statement, bashing steinand the recount effort saying this is for a election that's been conceded. the results should be respected instead of being challenged and abused which is what jill steinis doing. she narrowly beat clinton in wisconsin, pennsylvania and michigan. still, stein plans to move ahead in those states and potentially others as well. tweeting last night, i will do a recount in any state where the deadline has not passed. help my staff find state deadlines. now, in the last week alone, she's already raised $6 million to help fund this effort.
4:04 am
ed, sandra and pete, we'll tell you how it continues the next couple of weeks. >> help my staff, help us figure this out. good reporting garrett. help me, i'm a staff of one. >> but do you remember the moments on the campaign trail when she was just horrified that donald trump would not say that he would accept the outcome of the election? sniemts trump was honest. the press piled on. >> from the mainstream media, it was that donald trump would lose and he would be a cry baby and his supporters would say everything is rigged. now the shoe is on the other foot. look what hillary clinton said after chris wallace asked donald trump about it in the last debate. >> that's horrifying. every time donald thinks things are not going in his direction, he claims whatever it is is rigged against him. that is not the way our democracy works. >> she can't -- now she's going to tell us. each her own legal counsel tells
4:05 am
us there's no evidence of hacking in these three states or elsewhere. the margins that trump won by in wisconsin, michigan and pennsylvania exceeds the largest margin overturned in recount. in wisconsin it was closer in 2000 and 2004. yet, there were no recounts because the losers in those cases didn't demand anything. they said it was fair and square. >> what if she's doing it not to overturn, just to promote herself in the green party. >> switching from -- >> jill stein, it's interesting, maybe she's trying to throw us off the idea, there's some kind of coordination for financial backing from hillary supporters. she's attacking hillary clinton as if they're not in the same boat, but they are both now pushing for this recount. >> donald trump tweeting about it as well. saying this is a scam. something else that we're talking about this morning, obviously the passing of fidel castro. and some news here, canada's
4:06 am
golden boy, justin trudeau gets blasted for praising fidel castro as a remarkable leader. >> he said it is with deep sorrow i learn of the death of the longest serving president. a legendary revolutionary and orator as well. mr. castro made significant improvements to the education and health care of the island nation. the people on his nation were suffering all along. sophie and i offer our deepest condolences to the family, friends and many, many supporters of mr. castro. >> there's a background there. his father, pierre elliott trudeau met him during a visit there. their friendship lasted until the elder trudeau's death. castro was an honorary pallbearer at his funeral. >> he's a big lefty in canada. the left likes to line -- they love to point to education, literacy and health care.
4:07 am
you can teach them when to read the same book over and over again or a series of ten books to force an ideology, and then health care system, news flash, very mixed in what people receive. if you're wealthy and connected, you get good health care in cuba. if you're not -- >> castro's long time bodyguard was saying that fidel had like 20 different luxury properties throughout cuba and the caribbean, meanwhile people were starving, food was rationed. he was a dictator. i get that the prime minister's father was friends with him. but great revolutionary and orator. twitter blew up. >> a lot of people on twitter are writing similarly positive eulogies for hitler, darth vader. >> stalin was a remarkable figure and a one of the father
4:08 am
innovators of the strict form of diet better known as starvation. >> this is where the internet comes through. i'm saddened to hear of kim jong-il passing. he fought childhood obesity like no other. >> brutal, starving his own people. >> some disliked him. but the big bad wolf taught generations of pigs the wisdom of architectural planning, #trudeau eulogies. twitter can be mean. this is kind of funny. >> mean on trudeau. but he asked for it. >> a chilly response. and a chilly rick reichmuth standing on the plaza. >> i'm getting in the mood. >> it's awfully good out here, folks. tyler's trees brought these trees. it smells awfully good.

4:10 am
>> surrounded by all that loveliness out there. i'm going to send these guys out there. now to the headlines starting with a fox news alert. a hail of gunfire on new orleans bourbon street sending hundreds of partiers running for their lives. one person is dead and nine injured. police arriving to a chaotic scene. packed with tourists as you can imagine in the french quarter. >> i got one -- i got another one. i can't tell right now. i need that ems. a sap. >> one of the shooting vic -- he was illegally carrying a gun. a manhunt under way for a man accused of carjacking a car. the suspect stole a car in hervey, illinois. got into a neighbor's car following him and calling police. he crashed before running into

amazon box delivering men and even the cow is eating gluten-free. if that's not bad enough, the set if you want it, costs $130. i don't think i'll be signing up for that one. >> is it sacrilegious? >> maybe. >> i'm not buying that. if you were wondering what mitt romney thought of donald trump. here's a hint. >> donald trump is a phony, a fraud. he gets a free ride to the white house and all we get is a lousy hat. >> that was march of this year. but is the governor really ready to say he's sorry for that and other comments? someone who works for the romney campaign and knows him well is joining us next. >> he's months away from leaving the white house and the president maybe has a new job lined up. we've got details.

bitter rivals during the republican primary and mitt romney wasn't even a candidate. >> donald trump is a phony, a fraud. his promises are as worthless as a degree from trump university. we had a party that was obsolete. we had a party mitt romney couldn't run for dog catcher. this guy was a disaster. >> now fox news first reported that the president-elect may tap mitt romney for secretary of state if he issues some sort of a public apology. what's the likelihood of a mitt
4:17 am
mea culpa? >> a republican strategist and consultant who worked on mitt romney's campaign. i wonder what you think about this speculation that if mitt romney wants to be secretary of state and gets the nod over rudy giuliani who is a loyalist to donald trump, he has to do it on bended knee. >> you know what, i don't know about that. i think that there are apologies and there are apologies. i can see that obviously for president-elect makes a decision to appoint governor romney, that there are ample opportunities for the person to show their interest, which i think governor romney has done. more importantly, we have not not seen this before. this is on both sides. go back to recent history to the jack kennedy/lbj. look at george w. bush and the ronald reagan. this goes on and on and on.
4:18 am
the rhetoric is different than the practicality of governing. i think what it shows more than anything, at least the president-elect has been serious and thoughtful about this. he's been willing to reach out. i'm not sure you get an apology out of mitt romney. what you get is, i want to serve. i've indicated that. if i'm the right guy, i'll do it. >> i want to press you on that. there's a lot of romney loyalists who don't believe he should apologize. a moment ago, you said there are apologies and there are apologies. i'm reading, tell me if i'm wrong. if mitt romney were tapped to be secretary of state, if he could express regret or something short of a full apology to say maybe i shouldn't have said it that way before. >> if governor romney is in fact picked by the president-elect, there's ample opportunities because people like you and rest of the press want exactly that. the question is how far does he
4:19 am
go with this? i'm sure this was discussed at that meeting in new jersey last week. i'm not sure it's a full-out apology. i think it's more during the fog of war and the tough rhetoric of the campaign, things can be said, et cetera. >> right. >> i think it's very, very important that governor romney make it clear. he wants to serve this administration and i believe he's more than capable of doing that. apparently the president-elect at least in terms of consideration does as well. >> quickly, i want to get to the fact that people very senior in the trump camp seem skeptical of governor romney. kellyanne conway saying receiving deluge of private communications. some trump loyalists warn against romney as secretary of state and added kissinger and schultz flew around the world and were loyal, good checklist. emphasis on the word loyal. if he's picked, is this something hanging over romney's head? >> i'm not sure. look, i think the most important thing that can happen here,
4:20 am
after campaigns and i don't care whether they're presidential campaigns that i've been involved with, senate races, governor races, i find that candidates forget things faster than staff. it's not uncommon that the person burdened with the idea of governing has to make the choice to assemble a government to make his or her administration work best. sometimes that's hard for staff to get over. i agree and respect for kellyanne conway. i think she's an incredibly smart person. but there's hurt and anger. at the end of the day, donald trump has shown as president-elect that he is in the mood now to govern, that the campaign is over and the fact that he's considering mitt romney is a very encouraging sign for all parts -- >> i think you're on to something, maybe there's something about regret during the fog of war and he hopes to get the job. we appreciate your insight this morning. losing a loved one is obviously hard, especially when it's a socialist dictator who

4:26 am
harsh dictator like castro? joining me now it veteran spanish language journalist and mega tv host he will via salazar. good of you to be here this morning. what did you make of what you just heard from the journalists? >> good morning. i think that anyone who praise the revolution of fidel castro the way i am hearing my colleagues doing it have never lived in cuba for more than a week. absolutely that cuba and the castro brothers offered the cubans good health, good social services, good education and wonderful athletics. >> why do you think there's a difference from what we heard from chris matthews, brian williams talking about this romantic version of cuba. your parents lfled cuba. why is there such a difference in the way they see it? >> because we have lived it. we know in reality what really
4:27 am
happened. what happened was that the castro brothers offered the cuban people a perverse social contrast. which meant i'm going to give you health and education and athleti athletics, but you have to give me in exchange your life, your minded and your freedom. that's a perverse social contract. that's a high price to pay in order to get health and education. let's go to costa rica. that's a much better example. they offered health and education, but they didn't take away the social liberties. >> you say cubans would escape that social contract to which you referred when they could, they did? >> oh, my god, they have escaped it for 56 years. 20% of the cuban population have fled. you still have rafters trying to defy the sharks to come to the florida coast. the cuban people try to flee as much as they can, unfortunately,
4:28 am
because it's very -- it's a torment to live on the cuban island. unfortunately, many of my colleagues do not realize that and they do not see it. >> any of them in the wake of fidel castro's death, when you hear those responses and not just your journalistic colleagues that are saying this, it is world leaders, including president barack obama who put out reaction to his death that also sound like a romantic version of fidel castro and cuba. >> absolutely. i have spoken with many of them. unfortunately, they do not -- they only want to look at the merits. they do not want to see the misery. there are 56 years of suffering and you have been watching it, you have been interviewing many of the victims. but when you talk to the cuban people, even the people that are still living on the island and the people that have fled, it's very clear to all of us that it was one of the cruellest and most evil revolutions that the
4:29 am
america has ever seen. if you're going to talk about the good things, you have to talk about the misery. you have to say that cuba right now has the highest suicide rate in the americas per capita. you also have to say that right now, like i said, there are thousands of rafters or people trying to escape and they can't. you also have to say that homosexuals, gays and less beeians were put in concentration camps to change their sexual preferences. you have to say that the castro brothers shut down catholic churches and jewish synagogues and kicked out the rabbis and the priests. there's a long list. it's true, they gave wonderful health and education and athletics. you have to say that the cost they paid and we're still paying, the cuban people. now it's a new dawn. >> what do you see as the future for cuba? >> that's what we're betting on. we're talking about the misery, but let's talk about the future and the positive.
4:30 am
right now, there's a new dawn. it's a new era that could open for cuba. it depends on raul castro and the military that's around him. >> based on what we just heard from your colleagues in the media saying that this -- he's the george wourk washington of his country among those remaining in cuba, will you see any change in the media and the way they see cuba and raul running that country? >> george washington has the founding father of the most extraordinary country in the world. that is the beacon of human rights. everybody wants to come to the united states because here you can live your american dream. so i don't think that there's any comparison. it's the opposite. george washington and fidel castro. it's just that people buy the marketing. the cuban revolution and fidel castro was an expert at the marketing. they want the war of the ideas but not the war that the
4:31 am
cuban -- but not the reality that cuban need today live. like i said, it's a new dawn. we're happy, i think it's a new era. it depends on raul. if he's going to take up what president obama has offered him, which has been wonderful economic reform. >> certainly to get your thoughts and perspective on that this morning, elvira salazar. thanks for being here. >> my pleasure. hillary clinton's campaign now making it official. they think the election may have been rigged. what difference does it make? chris wallace here to tell us. we have our first reaction from the president-elect. that's next. does president obama already have a new job lined up in washington? meta appetite control...

4:36 am
point he was kind of waffling on that issue as to whether or not he would accept the results of the election. and then mike pence and his own daughter ivanka trump said of course he would. i asked him the question at the election. he hadn't said it. he said i'll keep you in suspense, famously. hillary clinton attacked him and said that's horrifying, that's not the way democracy works. now here we are with houmds since the election, close to a month and her campaign, her top campaign lawyer says they will join and participate in the jill stein initiated recount in wisconsin and if they can make it happen, in michigan and pennsylvania. the shoe is on the other foot indeed. >> just 15 minutes ago, the new president-elect tweeted a response to this. he said, hillary clinton conceded the election when she called me prior to the victory speech and after the results were in. nothing will change. a lot of speculation about why
4:37 am
jill stein is doing this. does she think she can change something for real? is she raising money for the green party? what is she doing? >> i think she's trying to raise money for herself. here's the thing. in the state of wisconsin, it looks like she will be the difference between hillary clinton winning and losing. on the one hand, she keeps hillary clinton from winning wisconsin and now she wants to raise money and push her own profile. she has raised a lot of money. apparently going to $7 million for this effort. it is kind of a study in hypocrisy on her part if she cared all that much about hillary clinton winning, she shouldn't have run in the first place. it's interesting that the clinton camp would decide to join in this. they say, well, we're on the sidelines, we want to make sure the recount is accurate. it is odd and completely
4:38 am
contradictory. it's no indication whatsoever that a recount is going to change. recounts make a difference when you're talking about a thousand votes. but we're talking here in the case of pennsylvania about 70,000 votes and in pennsylvania -- in wisconsin north of 20,000. so i don't see how this changes the election results at all. >> chris, tomorrow is going to be a busy day for the president-elect. he's going to be meeting with more potential picks during the trump transition. new names have been added to the list of contenders for secretary of state. for so long it's been mitt romney, rudy giuliani. are there third options being discussed? >> that's right. some of them are generals. you see them up there. david petraeus, john kelly. i have to say, he needs to settle this. this has become kind of kelly. when you have kellyanne conway, she's tweeting out criticism of
4:39 am
mitt romney or saying not her direct criticism but saying i'm being deluged with people upset about the choice of romney, this needs to be settled and he needs to decide who it is and move on. particularly when you're talking about secretary of state and secretary of defense. you would think he wants to lock them up sooner than later. in terms of the generals, it is troubling, the possibility that you could have the national security adviser who has been named, mike flynn, the defense secretary and at this point, we think james mad dog mat tis is the leading contender or petraeus, to have three retired generals, all three national security slots would be a little curious. >> only about 30 seconds. you've got reince priebus, the incoming white house chief of staff today. will mitt romney have to apologize. a lot of conservatives not happy
4:40 am
that he may be the secretary of state. >> have you been looking at my questions? >> that is one of the key questions. we also wants to ask him, because nobody from the trump transition has gone on the record on camera and talked about the question of what they're going to do with cuba. trump during the campaign talked about trying to roll back new relations that obama set. we'll see if they're going to follow through on that. >> have a good show, chris. >> chris wallace. thank you. >> he's got tim ryan challenging nancy pelosi on the speakership on the democratic side. turning to your headlines this morning. a suspect in custody after a series of attacks on sahr bucks cou starbucks coffee shops. >> i walked into a starbucks and owe o. >> the fbi says someone planted suspicious devices into three closed starbucks locations in albuquerque, new mexico. one of them exploded causing

5:02 am
i want to talk about fidel castro passing on. we've seen people like chris matthews saying he was really a romantic figure, mr. speaker. >> well, this is a good place to test the insanity of the american left. he wasn't a romantic figure if you were being shot by him and wasn't romantic if you were being driven off the island as hundreds and thousands were because he stole their property and threatened to put them in prison. he wasn't a romantic figure if you were a poet who spent 16 years in a prison because fidel didn't like you. let's be clear. the average car in cuba is over 30 years old. it would take the average cuban who earns $50 a month 100 years to buy the least expensive new car currently available in cuba. now this is all a result of socialism gone amuck. bernie sanders exact fantasy come to life in cuba.
5:03 am
it doesn't work. i think people ought to be honest about this. any professor or writer who says they like fidel ought to volunteer to spend six months in a cuban jail and tell us how they feel about the dictators p dictatorship. >> in contrast to the united states and even many years ago, ronald reagan when he was president obviously fidel castro railed against him and "new york times" highlighted that, as they often do. this is what castro said in 198 a5, if his power includes something monday strously undemocrat being as the ability to order a thermonuclear war, who then is more of a dictator, the united states or i? we have a new president coming in, what can donald trum do to set the stage for turning the stage on these horrific castros? >> i think he can aggressively implement the act passed in 1986
5:04 am
when i was speaker. he can maximize information flowing into the island in a variety of ways by radio and by internet and facebook. i think he can also maximize the pressure on the new government and say, look, we're very clear about this. we need free elections. we need the rule of law. we need a belief that the cuban people, not the cuban dictators have a future. and raul castro, who already designated his very placement, they get to make a choice. i don't think we should have the obama model helped nobody with the dictatorship. i think what we have to have is a toughness mentally about taking on the cuban dictatorship. >> so speaker, should the white house send someone, send a representative of this country to castro's funeral? >> i can't imagine anybody they would send unless marco rubio
5:05 am
would agree to go. i mean i think to send a cuban-american who stands totally for freedom to be in cuba might be worth at least exploring but to send the vice president or president or secretary of state, i think would be a terrible insult to the millions of cubans still suffering at the hands of a vicious dictatorship. >> let's move to the trump transition and something you're familiar with, a lot of consternation among your fellow conservatives that mitt romney appears to be but is a serious candidate to be secretary of state and our reporting tells us a couple of days ago that there are conversations going on in private about whether mitt romney might apologize to donald trump in some public way for basically flat out calling him a phony and fraud. do you think an apology is necessary here? >> well, let me first off say, i will support whoever president-elect trump picks because he has the right to fill the cabinet based on his judgment and his vision of going
5:06 am
forward. while i have very strong opinions that doesn't mean i wouldn't support whoever president-elect trump picked. i think there's nothing mitt romney can say that doesn't sound phony and frankly pathetic. he made his case all year. he did all he could to help cause trump to lose utah. he called trump vicious and vile things and strdescribed him in language which is not compatible. now that trump has won that mitt would suddenly decide a mia culp pa, all of the vicious things i said i didn't mean. he should did mean them and try to defeat donald trump. i think for speaking for most of the trump supporters, while we will support president-elect trump in whatever he does, i think we would be enormously disappointed if he brought mitt romney in any position of authority. >> the president-elect has run a
5:07 am
transparent process about what positions he may considering them for. the standoff or pause between giuliani and romney opened the door for other candidates, i think we can put them on the screen. bob corker, david petraeus and john kelly, two generals. do you think this is a romney/giuliani? >> i also think ambassador bolton has tremendous potential. candidly, for whatever it's worth in my opinion, rudy giuliani would be a great secretary of state. the baloney he has too many contacts overseas. when president eisenhower picked hill to be secretary of state, they thought that was an advantage. rudy has been in 80 countries and has connections all around the planet. it's an advantage to america to
5:08 am
have somebody who has done something. this left wing vision if he gotten you're and did nothing in the real world you would be a perfect candidate is exactly what's wrong with washington. rudy giuliani will do as much to clean up the state department. i can't imagine anybody who will be a tougher leader or advocate for america. >> something that continues to be big news this morning, team hil hillary is challenging the election results. trump has taken to twitter to slam this effort as a scam. but hillary clinton she was horrified when donald trump during the election process even hinted he might challenge an election if he thought it was rigged. here she is doing it. >> if you were secretary clinton and spent 40 years of your life when you worked for joe lieberman, 42 years and twice
5:09 am
thought you were going to be president and have to face bill clinton who won and face through how do i explain i'm a loser, you'll grasp at any straw. there's no straw too tiny for hillary clinton to grasp and it's sad. we're watching her live out a psych co-drama in public. the fact is she lost. she lost decisively according to the rules of the game and at some point, she will gradually disappear to write her memoirs or something else. >> you see the challenges, where will this go next? will they accept president-elect trump will be president trump? >> if president trump governs as firmly and as courageously as he campaigned and does genuinely take steps to clean out the swamp and the corrupt parts of the bureaucracy and take on veterans administration,
5:10 am
something one of your host knows an immense amount about, he's going to have left wingers mad at him every morning. that's a fact. "new york times" will be aper plek tick that we have donald trump in the white house because they were so desperate to have anybody else. and i think that means if the left will be in turmoil for next eight years. i'm pretty happy with the left is in turmoil. i worry when they are happy. >> speaker, you know they are using this transition team effort as a excuse to say that the trump transition is in turmoil because you do have kellyanne conway speaking out against having mitt romney be chosen as speaker of the house -- secretary of state. >> i was speaker of the house -- >> thank you, sir. >> are they divided? can you clear that up? >> this is a where the
5:11 am
president-elect clearly allowed this to occur. he could have cut it off at any point, no to romney and yes to giuliani. if he said yes to romney, i would be supporting romney. he wants to see where his base is. he's being -- it's interesting, he's being patient and being deliberate. he went to take a deep breath and slow down a little bit. i have to say, i have never seen this before. i just ran across a 2011 video of donald trump working in one of his hotels and doing -- being a bellman and cook and it's an amazing thing and gives you a totally different feeling for him as a human being. i think what he's done and david axelrod, who as you know ran the obama transition, axelrod came out and said, trump is actually ahead of where we were at this point. all of this talk of disarray is nonsense. he's looking methodically, putting together a superb team
5:12 am
and has tough standards because he knows he's going to be in a war with the establishment in washington every single day of his presidency. and he wants people around him who are committed and dedicated and prepared to stand by his side no matter how hot the heat gets. i think he's going to put together a good team. >> mr. speaker, i have about 30 seconds, jerry falwell jr. said he turned down a cabinet post. what i found more interesting with that, he said when he got the offer from president-elect trump he said he had to commit to serving four to six years. is this president-elect already looking ahead that he's going to be a dominant sort of reaganesque figure for eight years? >> i think he should be. . his goal has to be succeed to create jobs and drain the swamp. if he gets reee leked he'll serve eight years and it tells you how he built the entire trump empire.
5:13 am
he wants people he trusts and finds the right person then delegate massively. he'll have an entire team at work, not just one guy. not like the obama team. he wants the whole team there and wants them there long enough to rely on. >> mr. speaker, we hope you get time on the golf course. we thank her, not just you, for sharing you with us on this sunday. have a good rest of vacation. >> thank you. >> good to be with you. >> indesisiveness to one is i am patience to another. one of america's top allies turning on the west. ultimatum, give us what we'll want or we'll flood you with our migrants. we cover that next. this morning, nancy pelosi

5:41 am
be prepared. as the storm is farther to the east, we have horrible drought across much of the deep south and all of those fires going on. get ready because we have a lot of rain. first time we've had significant rain there in months and months. and great news. rain also in the northeast also dealing with the drought. beneficial rain coming to the east coast a little bit of a bummer for tuesday and wednesday with the rain but the good part is it helps the drought. >> it does indeed. >> positive spin on it. >> there you go. >> rick, thank you. >> all right, colin kaepernick at it again. singing fidel castro's praises, saying we could learn something from the cuban dictatorship. family fled from castro's cuba and he's there to respond next. he has some opinions. >> imagine getting a call from president-elect trump, one of the highest rolls in the administration, but wait until you hear who said nope.

about what i was experiencing. he said humira is for people like me who have tried other medications but still experience the symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease. in clinical studies, the majority of patients on humira saw significant symptom relief. and many achieved remission. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. if you're still just managing your symptoms, talk with your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, remission is possible.

5:46 am
get this, up to $15,000 off a new car. the offer lasts through tonight and already tried to get out of the show to buy one. >> colin kaepernick is praising fidel castro ahead of the dictator's death, a few days ago, saying one thing fidel castro did do, they have the highest literacy race because they invest more in their education system than they do in their prison system, which we do not do here. he's attacking america and praising castro. >> what don't america's role models understand about the reality of this regime? joining us to weigh in, former miami-dade circuit court judge whose own family fled from castro's cuba. judge, please, weigh in. we're waiting. >> where do we begin? it's very easy to have a lot of money to spend on education. the cuban government is the
5:47 am
source of figures regarding education and their wonderful health care system. i'm not sure i would weigh what they tell us the same way that i would some other more reliable sources. that being said, it's easy to have money to spend on education and health care and all of the citizens can have when you spend no money whatsoever on due processor criminal justice that provides civil rights. colin ckaepernick should think about the message he's sending. we know who fidel castro was. cubans do but you don't have to be cuban to know he's a murdering thug just like i don't have to be black to know the kkk aa massively racist organization. this tells us who colin kaepernick is. you can't in kneel in protest and say you're for freedom for everybody and say that you are against systemic oppression and wear on your shirt the picture of the biggest oppressor in the
5:48 am
world, a guy who executed people by firing squad without a trial. a guy who is responsible for the deaths of women and children by having the coast guard ram their boats as they try to flee the island. the island is such a paradise that colin kaepernick wants to tout it. people aren't going there. they are running away from there. they don't want to live there. he's sending a clear message that what he's doing with these protests, is hypocrisy, it's not about people's rights. >> speaking of hhypocrisy, the prison system is overrun and what would happen if colin kaepernick took a knee in cuban during the cuban national anthem? >> he would be beat to a senseless pulp. he would be arrested. probably shot, but at the very least, the rights he has here to protest and i afford him that right, of course everybody can protest, i may not agree with him. don't have to agree with his
5:49 am
protest. i think he's wrong. but you know what, i don't see the world from his mer inspective. over there if he knelt during the national anthem, he would be arrested and dragged to jail and beat into a senseless pile. >> do you need a car? are you going down to the chefry dealership in miami, $15,000 off? >> i don't need a car but i appreciate the recommendation. >> we appreciate you coming in this morning. >> thanks, judge. >> it's a pleasure seeing you guys. >> it's official, hillary clinton's campaign thinks the election may have been, yes, rigged. but what difference at this point does it make? use that quote roughly. >> karl rove has the answer and joins us live just ahead. do you want to be the envy of your neighborhood this christmas? how about lights you can control from your phone and those are my kind of lights. i don't want to be stapling on the roof.

good morning, everyone, it is sunday, november 27th. i'm sandra smith and this is a fox news alert. while you were sleeping, chaos on bourbon street. nearly a dozen people shot. one man dead. the breaking details just in. >> what would hillary clinton say if maybe somebody decided to question, i don't know the integrity of our elections? >> because that's horrifying. every time donald thinks things are not going in his direction, he claims whatever it is is rigged against him. >> well, now she's not so horrified about challenging things. she lost so now it's her campaign that's saying it might have been rigged and moments ago, president-elect trump went on twitter and boy he is responding. >> is there anything mitt romney can say to convince the next president that he should be secretary of state? >> i think there's nothing mitt
6:01 am
romney can say that doesn't sound phony and frankly pathetic. >> whoa. >> i would say newt gingrich has a theory. >> he weighed in earlier. he'll weigh in some more. we're glad you are here. grab a cup of coffee, mornings are better with friends. ♪ >> good morning, everybody, christmas trees on the plaza. maybe you're picking a tree out and we have some tips. >> that's one of the tips, when you bring it home, you saw the bottom off so you get the new absorbing of water. >> little small, charlie brown tree. >> they have a great collection out there. it's crisp out there today. it feels like it's turned like it's finally that season. >> i agree. >> i'm feeling it. i like it. >> i could smell the chestnuts roasting on sixth avenue.
6:02 am
>> now you're lying and trying to say you feel the christmas spirit. you didn't have the spirit. come on. we want you to have the spirit. >> a lot of news this morning, jill stein and hillary clinton now saying well, the election may have been rigged and they are demanding a recount. >> they sure are. >> president elect donald trump calling their comments ridiculous. >> garrett, what are we hearing. >> it's interesting the campaigns of both jill stein and hillary clinton have said they have looked into every report of hacking or voting irregularities since the election and they have found absolutely nothing to substantiate those reports. while they don't believe there was anything amiss, they are now saying they are simply calling for the recount to reassure those who don't assume the results. donald trump responded calling it a scam by jill stein and this
6:03 am
morning he took to twitter, hillary clinton conceded the election when she called me just prior to the victory speech and after the results were in. nothing will change. >> even the obama white house has said the election results are accurate and should be accepted by the rest of the country but still, stein who received 1% of the national vote is moving ahead and has already raised more than $5 million to fund this recount effort in wisconsin and pennsylvania and michigan. donald trump narrowly beat hillary clinton in all three states but margins of virnlg tri were large enough that it's extremely unlikely it would change the election results and there's not a lot of time left, the federal deadline to submit results is two weeks on december 13th. >> thanks, garrett. >> donald trump as he can do with modern technology, seven tweets about that, making his side of the argument and pointing out that hillary clinton did say on election night to him, i accept the
6:04 am
results of this election. >> what makes it relevant, who are jill stein's heroes? i was looking on twitter. she said fidel castro was a symbol of the struggle for justice. motivated by fidel castro. >> friends of fidel. >> it's hard to forget what hillary said back during the election process when she was campaigning at the debates and on the campaign trailing. what she said about donald trump if he were to not accept the election results. here's one moment. >> that's horrifying. every time donald thinks things are not going in his direction, he claims whatever it is is rigged against him. that is not the way our democracy works. >> now she's going to tell us how it really works. >> when you're done by 70,000 in pennsylvania, that's not how a democracy works either to try to recount it. >> newt gingrich had strong feelings. we heard one at the top of the 9:00 hour. he had strong feelings on
6:05 am
hillary clinton. >> not just mitt romney. >> listen to this. >> if you were secretary clinton, and you had spent 42 years of your life, from the time you were a student when you worked for joe lieberman forstate senate, not u.s. senate and 42 years and twice thought you were going to be president and have to face bill clinton, who actually won and you're going to have to fake through how do i explain i'm a loser, you'll grasp at any straw. there's no straw too tiny for hillary clinton to grasp. we're watching her live out a psychodrama in public. she lost, she lost decisively according to the rules of the game and she'll gradually disappear to write her memoirs or something else. >> did i mention he had strong words? >> this is a tiny straw, the chances of happening are zero. >> bill clinton didn't just win once, he won twice. i think back to the other clip
6:06 am
of hillary clinton, why aren't i 50 points ahead right now? >> it's a good question to be asking. >> the other question being asked today, a lot of folks are looking to tomorrow when the trump transition team resumes its efforts to identify members of the cabinet. as we pointed out many times, not in disarray but ahead of the pace of previous presidents but they are asking and speculating who will be for secretary of defense and also secretary of state. mitt romney and rudy giuliani being mentioned and would mitt romney apologize for the many things he said and did on the campaign trail? we asked that question of speaker gingrich and he had a direct answer. >> i think there's nothing mitt romney can say that doesn't sound phony and frankly pathetic. he made his case. he made his case all year and did all he could to help cause trump to lose utah. he called trump vicious and vile
6:07 am
things and described him in language which is not possibly compatible. now that trump has won that mitt would suddenly decide to issue a mea culpa, all of the vicious things i said i didn't mean. he sure did mean them and try to defeat donald trump. i think speaking for most of the trump supporters, while we will support president-elect trump in whatever he does, i think we would be enormously disappointed if he brought mitt romney in any position of authority. >> the former speaker came to play this morning. let's turn to you on this ed. you've done reporting. you said mitt romney according to your sources is still very much in play as far as the pick here but it's not just -- it's not just him and giuliani anymore, the door has been opened -- >> i'm told from a senior official that mitt romney has been on the phone, not just with
6:08 am
the president elect but mike pennsylvania as well. remember mike pence came out at the new jersey golf course and did a couple of interviews, one with chris wallace and said that mitt romney was sort of a leading contender here and a lot of people said, whoa, it's not just several people. think the fact that pence is involved, on the phone with romney, that tells me that despite what is really a backlash not just from outside conservatives but kellyanne conway was on twitter on thanksgiving day raising questions about mitt romney's loyalty. nonetheless, she's not in charge. >> there's division -- >> the transition -- >> the division that it's clear who is in charge and it's donald trump. he wanted to shut this down, he could. this is a competent guy going through a process and newt gingrich said it well of the maybe he's being patient and deliberate and consulting with people across the spectrum. who is the best person to be my
6:09 am
secretary of state? >> it's not like he has to pick secretary of state today and make the right choice. newt gingrich made a strong case for rudy juligiuliani. >> as we showed you at the top of the 6:00 hour, he's got a long list of big names meeting with him at trump tower yesterday, this transition process -- >> tomorrow and monday, yeah. >> starting with a fox news alert. a hail of gunfire erupts on bourbon street. one person is dead and nine others are hurt. police arriving at the chaotic scene. >> i got one shot in the chest, one shot in the hand and another one shot somewhere else. i can't tell right now. i need ems asap. >> one of the shooting victims under arrest right now.
6:10 am
he was illegally carrying a gun. a manhunt under way at this hour for a man accused of carjacking two cars and murdering a security guard. a suspect stole a car in a chicago suburb and the owner got into a neighbor's car following him and calling police. once the suspect heard the sirens, he crashed before running into the train tracks. >> the suspect is loose and considered armed and dangerous. >> dakota access pipeline protesters refusing to follow government orders, hundreds of activists vowing to stay on the line despite a eviction order from army corps of engineer. they are presence blocking crews from finish a huge part of the pipeline. they are worried it could contaminate the water supply which they say is on sacred ground. >> melania trump hailed as a
6:11 am
hero. according to tmz, the president of slovenia sent a con grat la tri letter after the election and expressed his gratitude to melania for raising visibility to their central european country. melania reportedly invited to visit with the president-elect trump, invited him. interesting development there. >> no doubt about it. they are very proud. rick is outside, we're proud of him trimming the trees. >> we certainly are. those are beautiful trees by the way. >> they are really beautiful trees out here. getting us in the mood. i'm freezing, it's not really about it's cold but stand outside long enough you get cold. let's show you what's going on. today the last day, maybe tomorrow, people will still be traveling. if you're heading home after the long weekend, airports are looking good again. we've had the best luck all holiday weekend. at least across the airport --
6:12 am
and all of the cold is still bottled up. northern canada, in and around the arctic, nothing -- chilly, but not horribly cold, cold enough for snow across parts of the four corners. especially across the wasatch, maybe over a foot. across the rockies and mountains of arizona will get snow. i want to tell you one last thing, severe weather threat tomorrow across parts of the deep south. get ready for a threat of a tornado or two across areas of louisiana. don't see it this much. >> you just heard how hillary clinton is sort of teaming up with jill stein to force a recount beyond just wisconsin. who's paying for it. following the money, what he does next. forget the grinch who stole christmas, this year, the

6:17 am
>> it appears jill stein will be paying for it and her donors as well as hillary clinton. they announced yesterday that their campaign is going to support the efforts. it looks to me like it's a clear effort to delegitimatize donald trump and his presidency. much in the same way that george w. bush when he came into office, recount in florida in 2000, of course and supreme court decision, i wouldn't say that his presidency suffered in certain ways because the left never regarded them as their president. they are trying to see them rebuild that same effort. hillary clinton's lawyers determined that only 107 votes swayed in election. and here tler trying to make donald trump look like he's not the real president. >> here's donald trump's response, he's been tweeting about it, calling it a scam. the green party's scam to fill up coffers is now being joined
6:18 am
by the badly defeated dems and tweeted the democrats when they incorrectly thought they were going to win asked that the election night tab lags being accepted, not so anymore. we've been playing sound all morning is hillary clinton saying she was horrified that donald trump suggested he may challenge the election results and here we are today and she's joining forces with jill stein to challenge the election results. >> it's obvious that she thought they was going to win. she was going to -- she would never raise the questions about the legitimacy of the election. in the history of in recounts in america, we never had 10,000 votes overturned. in michigan, hillary clinton lost by about 10,000 votes, a little more. that's the smallest narrowest state and that margin has never been overturned. the likelihood of that happening in three states is basically
6:19 am
none. it's not going to happen. yet, she's trying to do this, she and jill stein are teaming up to do this. >> you might want to think twice before donating. she exceeded the original amount, 2.5 million now asking for 7. in the fine print on her website where she's asking for these donations, it says, we cannot guarantee a recount will happen in any of stheez states we're targeting. >> dan? >> of course why donald trump says she's trying to fill her coffers and she might do that. she raised a ton of money. the democrats -- imagine if the republicans had lost. there will be infighting between people thought we shouldn't have nominated donald trump or whatever. this is to save the democrats from infighting. there's a lot of people who are saying we could be blaming each other and yet if we can all team together to blame donald trump, that's a way of preventing -- that's a way of sort of keeping
6:20 am
the band together rather than sniping at each other. that's what they are trying to do here. the problem is these recounts, if they happen and occur, it looks like some might, they may legitimatize donald trump more and people say donald trump really is the winner, the democrats might be in worst shape had they undergone the recounts than if they hadn't done them at all. >> dan halpert, thanks for joining us. just when you thought it couldn't be get -- the clinton investigation, those details just ahead. could local police, so-called deportation force? break down how it works next. your insurance company won't replace the full value of your totaled new car.

6:25 am
car. brand-new details emerging on donald trump's deportation force, getting police officers to help deport millions of illegal immigrants. but how would a plan like this work? here to weigh in, i want to be clear how we got to this potential for the argument and put a full screen of of the kansas secretary of state meeting with donald trump at trump tower and there was a photo that emerged of documentations he was carrying in and one suggestion, i don't know if we can put that up, potentially on that list, a deportation of local law enforcement to enforce local immigration laws. there's the shot right there. what do you make of this proposal and how would it work? >> leading to be charge to be head the dhs and meeting with trump on monday. section 287-g of the naturalization act of the united states, it was enacted by
6:26 am
congress in 1996 and been around for a while. it basically dpu tieses local and state law enforcement officers to act as immigration customs and enforcement agents. something that normally would be done by federal immigration officers would be done by your local cops and back in december of 2012, obama ee fektively neutralized the street component. saying we can only do it when you're in custody and jail. and as you know that generated the drama voluming the sanctuary cities as well. >> i talked to border agents on the ground who feel their hands are completely tied. what would this look like? this would be proactive, he are they proact everybodily looking for immigration status. >> that's a great question, pete. it's more proactive, you get trained by ice and four weeks of
6:27 am
basic training and one week of refresher courses and you are just like immigration. you can go and proactively stop people on the street, check their immigration status. if you find they are here illegally, you can take them into custody. guys, ice still has to pick up the cost for that. that's going to be expensive for local and state law enforcement. if donald trump wants to deport 2 to 3 million illegal immigrants with criminal records here in the united states, he'll have to direct funding and budget resources to this effort. >> and he's got mayors -- we have a map of sanctuary cities that declared we're not going to work with federal illegal immigration laws or recognize them in our cities but you might find it hard to imagine they would be willing to deputies local police department. what's your sense of how local law enforcement would act, do they want the power to do it or do they feel they are already
6:28 am
overstretched. >> they are including states like california and texas, have a wider influx in terms of illegal immigration. it's because it's not going to cost the government anything in terms of the federal government, it might be hard for state and local law enforcement agencies to want to apply for this program and that might have a chilling affect on their ability to do this, even if they want to. >> could you conceive of some federal funding to support the deputization? >> trump is making this a priority. you better your bottom dollar he'll direct money towards this resource. >> interesting a new proposal is a reinvig race of something around for some time. >> exactly. >> thanks for joining us. really appreciate it. >> well, it's official. hillary clinton's campaign thinks the election may have been rigged. but as she famously said, what difference at this point does it make? karl rove right there, has the answer and he joins us live next. forget the grinch, hipsters in skinny jeans with mochas and

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.

6:34 am
as "fox & friends" co-host but i didn't know you were selling cars on commission in miami. >> low, low price, $15,000. we'll get you down to miami, buddy. >> indeed. >> the irony of ironies here. hillary clinton all of a sudden joining forces with jill stein. spent so much time belly aching if donald trump loses he's not going to accept it. donna brazil contacted me saying she's not behind jill stein's recount effort, she was referring to a guest we had on say saying they were behind it in some way. i want to clear that up. hillary clinton's campaign lawyer said yesterday that even though they have no evidence to back up any problems, they are getting behind the recount effort in wisconsin and maybe michigan and pennsylvania as well. >> they are legally entitled to do this. they are within the deadlines and thooz elections are close.
6:35 am
michigan 4.8 million voters and 10,000 votes separate the two. that's less than a quarter of a percent. wisconsin, nearly 3 million voters, 30,000, 8/10 divide the candidates and pennsylvania, 6.1 million and 7 0,000, over 1%. there's never been an election in which a statewide number of 10,000 votes has been overturned in a presidential election. i'm not aware of one where that's been overturned in a state election. this is unlikely to have any change whatsoever. dan halpert put his finger right on it, which is this is about building a myth on the left that somehow or another, the election was stolen by donald trump in the close states. they don't care what the result is. you'll notice in wisconsin, they are not just asking for recount, which they are legally entitled for but reconciliation of the
6:36 am
paper ballots which is an attempt to go in and examine them all and allow them to do something they are not allowed under law to do. and that's all to build this myth of somehow or another, donald trump stole the election. >> sure. we're hearing from hillary clinton and we're hearing from jill stein today but also hearing from bernie sanders, the whole trio is here talking about the future of the democratic party. he has a different view. we'll get you to react to that. >> i think it's fine to take a reassessment of the purpose of where the democratic party and where it wants to go. i think essentially what we need to do right now is to become a grass roots party, which is what keith ellison believes opens the door to working people and young people and less emphasis on raising large sums of money and more emphasis of bringing new blood into the political party. >> is that the future of the democratic party? >> i want to hereby endorse
6:37 am
keith ellison, i can think of few things that would be better for the future of the republican party then to have a far left wing socialist like bernie sanders only worse as chairman of the democratic national committee. that will sell well in texas. that's going to go really well in florida and ohio and a lot of other states. the democratic party is going through a period of goofiness. and they are going to take some time to work their way through it. but and we shouldn't take too much comfort in it because parties go through these spasms of irrationality and get themselves back in the right place. it will be a year or two before they do that. in the meantime the republicans will pick up seats they would otherwise not have in places like virginia and maybe in the 2018 offyear elections but eventually democratic party will get itself back towards winning election, not by going to the furthest part of the left they

can get to but grabbing americans who are reasonably centrist and rational in their views. >> meanwhile, karl, the trump transition team has a lot to do, positions unfulfilled at this point. a bunch of candidates will be going to trump tower and obviously we continue to talk about secretary of state, giuliani versus mitt romney. are there -- is there anybody that you've got your eye on that might emerge to fill one of these positions that we're not currently looking at? >> now, look there's a wide variety of people and we'll get some surprises, the pace of the appointments is historically pretty rapid. they have the cia director and u.s. ambassador to the united nations, they are ahead of the pace. this coming week in 2008 was the first time that barack obama made an appointment, already donald trump is well out in
6:39 am
front of this. i would say i think there's kerfluffle over the secretary of state with dueling advocates and different people in the mix, at least three people being in the mix as ed reported earlier. it's unseemly. if i were trump, i would get this one resolved and move on. regardless of who it is, you go with petraeus to avoid the controversy or go with juligiul with the loyal guy or with romney because he has the capability of being secretary of state, wants to unite the party. the stuff with tweets from own staff members, comments from his surrogates, this doesn't make him look strong. he ought to resolve and move forward. he has an important post to fill. the big three are not yet filled, secretary of state and secretary of defense, though we might have a good idea and secretary of treasury. and these are really important in foreign affairs and all key

get the recipes at walnuts.org. the big question, shou send representative to fidel castro's funeral. the daughter of cuban political refug refugee, policy analyst at the heritage foundation is here to explain. >> good morning. >> you're a first generation cuban-american, what are your thoughts about paying respects, even if you completely disagree with the dictator in trying to open a new channel a new day in u.s. cuban relations? >> i mean, for the past two years, the president has been attempting to do and every which way it's been an absolute failure. political arrests in cuba at an
6:45 am
all-time high, reached 10,000 and repression against the religious community is also at an all-time high. >> the relation with the cuban-government when they don't want it to be unsuccessful. and as for the matter of that being all of a sudden changed with sending a representative to his funeral, that strategically would be a terrible mistake. >> jill stein said the green party candidate for president, fidel castro was a symbol of the struggle for justice in the shadow of empire presente. as someone who is a first generation cuban-american, how do you react? >> for the cuban exiled community, fidel castro was the cuban community's hitler. my grandfather would tell stories how they would hide
6:46 am
indoors while fidel castro's firing squad would slaughter people outside. they had -- they sought asylum in the peruvian embassy and house was completely destroyed and never been able to go back. to see somebody like jill stein dishonor the memory of so many who were victims of fidel castro, it's repulsive. >> it's chilling to hear you talk about that in terms of firing squad. when you hear about actual families hiding in homes because of firing squads going around to kill people, obviously puts a much finer point on this. that's in the past. fidel castro is now dead. what does president-elect do to take what might be a bad hand, started opening relations and normalizing them but didn't get recessions and make raul, fidel's brother, change any
6:47 am
behavior. what does president hf-elect trump do going forward? >> he can stand publicly and meet dissidents and optics matter and we flknow this. this is something president obama knee gleneglected to do t time again. many had appointments to meet with him that was cleared by the cuban government were arrested in route to meet with him. that should be interpreted as an act of regression and america should have responded but instead obama ended up at a baseball game with raul castro. i'm hoping president trump's team will guide him in a better direction and if his statement was any indication, i think we're in for -- >> you've got 30 seconds, if donald trump comes in and does what he said, he'll overturn the executive actions that president obama took, aren't we back to square one. is there a better way forward? >> i think we need to look at the fact there are 11 million
6:48 am
hostages in cuba and it's not so much whether we're back to square one because we've never -- i think we already -- we're at the net negative in terms of our policy towards cuba. and anything that president trump would do at this point would make the situation much better. >> anna quintana, we hope if you still have family there, they are doing okay. >> god bless, have a great day. >> a very special surprise for a military base looking to spread holiday cheer. we'll join rick outside next.
