change the election results. if you are one of the people who cannot accept that donald trump won the election, have no fear. government sponsoring therapy and especially here in new york city. it's on us. let me just remind you, mornings are better with friends. cheer up. ♪ he's going big and he's kind of -- pete hegseth is having pancakes and punditry at johnny b's in west allis, wisconsin. >> christmas decorations up. good morning, pete. >> it's incredibly festive. >> donald trump will be here in stal is later today to talk about -- for his thank you tour. we're talking politics in the diner. asking how donald trump is doing. i've been looking at the diner.
3:02 am
there's something called the king of johnny v's. ten eggs, hash browns, three bacon, three sausage and ham. if you can eat it in an hour, you get it free. >> that's not for an entire table, just for one person? >> just one person. >> expensive. >> man oh, man. >> thank you, pete. we look forward to talking to you throughout the show. >> can't wait -- >> is that a guy thing? i would never try to do that. >> it's not a guy thing. it's one of those things, bottomless shrimp. >> i think it is a guy thing. there's a young man who used to live at my house. when he was in high school, he had a bet whether or not he could eat the ben and jerry's vermontster. it's a pail of ice cream. >> did he ever do it? >> he ate it. sick for three days. >> right. >> it's definitely worth it. it's bad for you and you threw
3:03 am
up. >> he's still up on the wall in richwood, new jersey. just saying. >> news that's happening today. how do we know? donald trump tweeted it out. it's coming out. maybe even on the show. >> tillerson is going to be offered the secretary of state position. if it passes through, he will be the next secretary of state. when you think about an outsider, absolutely an outsider in business. however, when you find out that bob gates and both former secretary of state condoleeza rice recommended him, there must be something there. >> yeah. >> apparently, he has been doing business with exxon since the yeltsin days. according to transition officials, the reason he impressed donald trump and there were a parade of people up for that job, he had made some deals across the world that were trumpian, that was their word, in nature. big deals and donald trump really likes that guy right
3:04 am
there. >> donald trump says he's able to sail through the confirmation process. there are some critics that are in congress that say maybe not so much. we're not in support of this guy because he has ties to russia. he got an award called the honor of friendship that vladimir putin gave him. >> he did a big deal, he was able to secure the arctic drilling rights for exxon and then the russian national oil company was able to take part in some exxon concessions around the world. good for both parties. >> the problem is, maybe it's not a problem, he has done deals with countries that are not -- they are authoritarian or communist. he looks for stability in order to get his deal done. now he's got to answer the questions, can you put the country where you put exxon? the answer is yes, he'll get through. meanwhile, let's talk about mitt romney. he is officially the runner-up for this position. >> that's right. mitt romney posted this on facebook. he says it was an honor to have been considered for secretary of state of our great country.
3:05 am
my discussions with president-elect trump have been enjoyable and enlightening. i have very high hopes that administration will lead the nation with greater strength and prosperity. this is good news. he was not a fan of trump. he called him a phony. now they're buddies. >> which is terrific. i saw something in gateway pundit this morning that said according to roger stone who has been an ally with donald trump through the years that donald trump really wasn't intending to make mitt romney a serious contender. he said he was toying with him. that's what it said there. >> that's highly unlikely. >> there's a general friendship there that has developed over the last month or so. you get the friend, rudy giuliani, nobody was more loyal to donald trump in the runup to the election. rudy, as it turns out, he took himself out of contention a couple of days ago. >> it was probably one of the few positions that many people
3:06 am
felt was perhaps a reach for rudy giuliani. although it's hard to imagine him not doing a great job. he and donald trump seem to have the same mind-set. it's important too, mitt romney having a job in the administration. this is a taxing position. after a couple of years, a lot of people rotate out. i think he's on deck to do something or do some of these -- >> were you surprised when we got the word that rick perry was going to be energy sector. he went from governor of texas to "dancing with the stars" to energy secretary. >> i think it was in 2012 when he was asked to name the three government agencies he was going to abolish, he said education and commerce and he forgot to mention energy. >> he doesn't want to get rid of that one. >> he understands the energy industry. he talks extensively at it. >> he's from texas. >> he ran that state.
3:07 am
>> it's also important to know, this was another guy, he went at it personally with -- on many levels, donald trump was impressed with him. >> when we traveled with him, rick perry was always there, rudy giuliani was always there too. >> let's talk about the effort to delegitimize the president of the united states incoming. as it turns out the recount didn't work out for the democrats. so now they've moved on to it's the russians were assisting donald trump. keep in mind yesterday we told you that the cia thought there was a connection. but the fbi said they can't prove it. now, actually the head of all the government intel agencies, the office of the national intelligence does not endorse the idea because there's no evidence that moscow actually did it. >> there's no evidence but they said they don't know the intent. they believe there was hacking there but they don't know the
3:08 am
intent of the hacking to help trump, hillary or rand paul. >> they're never going to know. >> unless you find the guy or woman that did it and said here's my focus. >> it's going to be the same for both parties. donald trump was tweeting this, this morning or last night. he said the final wisconsin vote is in and guess what, we just pingd up an additional 131 votes. the demes and green party can now rest. scam. >> the recount is over and that didn't work. now john podesta put out a statement saying it was all rigged and he wants the electoral college member electors to get a special briefing before they cast their ballots on december 19th. he says this in a statement. >> despite our protestations this matter did not receive the attention that it deserved by the media and the campaign. this should distress every american. never before in the history of our republic have we seen such
3:09 am
an effort to undermine the bedrock of our democracy. this is not a partisan issue. >> keep in mind, too, there's very few people who have done more to hurt hillary clinton than john podesta, when it's exposed by a phishing scheme that could have lured in everyday americans, he's the most important person of that staff, it was exposed by a staffer of his and you know what it really revealed, behind the scenes they have little respect for their candidate and it revealed that they were working in cahoots to make sure that bernie sanders made absolutely no legitimate progress to get the nomination and alienated the supporters. that's pretty much on him. >> the white house said after the election, there's absolutely no evidence that hackers impacted the election. since all this stuff has come out, we realize there's no information there. my question to everybody is, if and it's a big if. if the russians did hack in to impact the election to help
3:10 am
donald trump, what information was the smoking gun? there wasn't anything decisive in the information we got from the e-mails that we saw that swung the election. the election was won in those blue states that went red because donald trump's message was of jobs and of change and that resonated with america. whatever information was got from the hacks, i don't think -- >> they were hacking our pentagon and the white house from 2014. >> separate from what we're talking about -- >> let me finish. if you were that upset with the hacking by the russians/china, now the president of the united states is scrambling to help john podesta and everybody else instill doubt in donald trump's legitimacy. if you're that concerned about the hacking of national security, where was the hacking that affected the white house and the pentagon and the investigation and the retribution of that. we never sent north korea a
3:11 am
message. now we have to get to the bottom of an overwhelming electoral victory of donald trump. >> we've heard from the producers, they're telling me that rex tiller son, this is a fox news alert. he will be the next secretary of state. we'll be talking with reince priebus in an hour or two. in the meantime, it's 6:11 in new york city. >> let's hand it over to heather with headlines. good morning. i hope you're having a good morning. pure chaos at two different planes packed with passengers. forced to make emergency landings overnight. it was a terrifying scare on a san francisco-bound flight when it started losing pressure midair. the american airlines plane which left from charlotte diverted to phoenix. that's where crews checked the plane. police giving the all clear to a lufthansa flight. the pilot immediately landing

3:13 am
nixon written in 1987. it was just amazing that he wrote it. >> mr. nixon writing in part, quote mrs. nixon told me you were great on the donahue show. she predicts when you decide to run for office that you will be a winner. mr. trump remains close with the nixon family today. and those are your headlines. how about that. about to hang in the white house. become a winner. >> no kidding. >> the highest office. >> thank you very much. >> first nixon, then churchill. that's a woman being dragged off her flight flat on her back. wait until you hear what happened that led to this. >> don't jump the line. what really happens at the top of trump tower once you board the golden elevators. that's our next guest. congressman zinc i. ♪

here to break it all down is judge andrew napolitano. judge, also the office of the director of national intelligence does not endorse the cia finding because there is no evidence that russia tried to help trump. >> you're right. but let's start with a couple of basics. there are 16 known, publicly known intelligence agencies of the federal government. there are god only knows how many not publicly known intelligence agencies filled with all kinds of people with all kinds of political views that sometimes they disagree with each other. sometimes a team goes off on its own and do something management is unaware of. somewhere, somehow a team in the cia expressed an opinion that the russians could infliens the election. how could they do that? there's leaking and there's hacking. leaking is when somebody on the inside spills the beans or somebody from the outside gets in there and reveals what is there. >> that's what julian assange says. he says it was an insider. >> correct.

when he said this played no role in the election? >> yes, donald trump has a strong case. the best case the democrats have is some people were disaffected to mrs. clinton when they read the snarky e-mails of her staff. what donald trump is talking about, there is no evidence that the russian government did something that affected the outcome of this election. he's absolutely correct. >> what's your reaction to donald trump's tweet then? what if the roles were reversed? >> if the roles were reversed, it would be very, very serious issue. >> the fbi an the cia not on the same page. i thought after 9/11, though, they were supposed to be together. >> you know, they were. but there's still institutional rivalry. here's the interesting thing. they all rely on almost the same body of intelligence. it shows you how inskrutable

4:04 am
has maintained these relationships across the world through many administrations, both republicans and democrats, and at the end of the day, it's putting america first and donald trump and rex tillerson had a connection on that issue and we're excited about today and what rex tillerson is going to bring to the table. >> we know he could get a great table in yemen. he knows the best restaurants. he's that connected in some of the worst spots in the world that happen to have oil. the question is can he put america where scon was? ask -- can he understand america's interests? >> it requires someone at the top of the -- at the top to say look we have to have relationships with people who may not always be are the greatest people in the world but people i have to get along with.

in order to have world peace, in order to have peace in the middle east, you know that you have to be able to bring people to the table that might not always like each other, but you have somebody that is capable of doing that and so having relationships with people that would otherwise not be the first people you would invite to your party might actually be beneficial to putting america first and that's what rex tillerson and president-elect trump want to do. >> what senator mccain and mendez have problems with is he's gotten the friendship award from vladimir putin. can somebody who has a friendship plaque on his office be tough on vladimir putin? >> rex tillerson is a really tough guy. you know what, athletes, astronauts, musicians, other americans, canadians, a lot of folks have gotten this award. but the truth is having relationships with people is not a bad thing. i don't know how we got to the place where having an actual
4:06 am
functional relationship with someone who might not be a person that we would first think of to have that relationship with is suddenly a bad thing. i mean, we have a lot of problems in this world and we're not going to solve those problems by making believe that people don't exist so america first. that's what president-elect trump lives by every day. that's what's in his head every day. americans first. america first. we're going to be tough across the world, and president-elect trump and rex i willer son and vice president president-elect pence are going to take every day with that mind set in place. >> what about secretary of energy? rick perry was named as secretary of energy. why did you guys choose him? >> that hasn't been formally announced. >> cbs reported that. >> cbs can report what they want to report. it has not been official. >> maybe why is he on the list? that's a better way to do it,

4:08 am
extraordinarily hard working patriotic and knowledgeable experts and if you are not getting their perspective, their detailed perspective, then you are flying blind. >> i believe he didn't take it every day either, but what do you make of his assessment that you are flying blind without the critical assessment of the people in the intel community? >> it's just not true. he's doing his intelligence briefings every day, and we do the presidential briefing. i think this week we'll have three presidential briefings in the five days. i mean, this is a little bit ridiculous and over the top. look, he's very prepared. we spent all day, every day, in his office, every half an hour meeting with someone different, whether it be about world affairs, domestic issues, interviews for cabinet positions. yesterday, he spoke with president obama as well for
4:09 am
quite a long time talking about a number of issues. so this is just a little bit, you know, look, people are slicing and dicing right now and it's december. it's ten days before christmas. it's interesting and everything is donald trump all the time but that's okay because he's ready. we're excited, and he's doing a fantastic job. >> all right. now let's talk about what's not going to happen and that is donald trump press conference to describe how he's going to disentangle himself from his business. what we do know is he's said eric and don jr will not add to the business. they will maintenance the properties that they have and it looks like ivanka and jared will be playing a role in the administration. but we didn't get the press conference we thought we were getting. what happened? >> well, first of all, you are going to get it and we're going to do it right after christmas, after the first of the year. but can we back up a second? i think you all know this. we have a person that's built one of the most successful

retail companies in the entire world. no one didn't believe when they went to the polls that the trump brand, the hotels, the golf courses -- all of it, wasn't something that was real and was something that wasn't going to be cut off instantly right after the election. this isn't easy stuff so what president-elect trump is doing with a lot of lawyers and a lot of people involved is just making sure that all government ethic are followed. that the i's are dotted and t's are crossed. that's all this is. it takes time but we'll get it right. >> would i say i'm accurate in that description that don jr and eric stay in new york, run the companies, don't buy anything else and just maintenance those accounts and ivanka will be playing some type of role in the administration? >> part of that is true but perhaps not all of it and i'm not prepared now to slice and dice it with you although i do
4:11 am
like you a lot, brian. it's not something that i'm going to do right now. but i will say what we talk about earlier about rex tillerson, it's america first, americans first, and we don't want to have any issues like this moving forward after january 20th, so it's going to take time and i can just assure you and the rest of the american people that president-elect trump is going to do everything properly. >> what can we expect tonight? he's going to wisconsin to thank the voters there to helped him get elected. >> well, i might see my house today. that would be an interesting sight. but i'm looking forward to it. it's a thank you event in wisconsin. you are going to see, obviously, scott walker, paul ryan, and other -- david clarke and others there that are excited. look, we haven't won wisconsin since 1984 and we have a candidate that was very uniquely situated to win, and i don't think anyone else could have won wisconsin but donald trump, so
4:12 am
he did it, and people love him there and we can't see to see everybody. >> it will be good news that you can actually do and do laundry at your actual house. before you go, what do you make of the legacy media talking about how, you know, the story that the cia thinks that russia helped trump, the fbi says there's no proof and now the office of the director of the national intelligence doesn't see any evidence and yet legacy media is saying it looks like positively russia helped trump win? >> well, first of all, there's two different issues. one is the hacking itself, which we don't like and think is ridiculous and we need to protect americans and businesses and entities from hacking. but the second piece which is terribly offensive is that somehow russia helped donald trump win. number one, there's no evidence that the result of whatever anyone did on this hacking actually helped donald trump win. the reason donald trump won was that he swept the country with a
4:13 am
message like no one has ever seen. he won because he crushed hillary clinton in the debates, especially debate two and three. he won because he was able to resonate throughout the midwest. he won because hillary decided to ignore wisconsin and michigan. i'm sure the russians didn't advise her of that. this whole thing is really a play by the liberal media to take away a legitimate electoral landslide from president-elect trump. but forget about that. we don't care. we're moving forward. we do want to avoid these sorts of situations in the future but there's no evidence that it actually helped donald trump win. he did it. the team did it. and obviously, we're excited about looking forward, not through the rearview mirror and that's what we're doing every day. >> i'm sure you are going to have a big day today as you announce the secretary of state and maybe the secretary of energy. thanks so much for joining us. appreciate it, reince priebus. >> thank you, have you fun at home today? >> that's right.

4:38 am
>> yeah. he is. he's already good. i mean, he's doing the steps and he's just doing a good job so far. >> the gentleman over here talked about how wisconsin has been scarred by politics a little bit. the attempt by some democrats and some others to make it win he didn't win fair and square. >> it's just proving what we already know, you know, besides 131 votes that we didn't actually know about, so it's a good thing. >> if there's one thing you want to see him accomplish what he steps into office, what would it be? >> just bringing a lot more jobs back. >> jobs. jobs issues and across the spectrum, there's been a lot of satisfaction with the picks that the president-elect has made so far. you hear outside the box, you hear businessman and ceo and success which i think really resonates with the folks here and they look forward to hearing from him from the podium tonight. >> that's right. and trump is heading your way out to wisconsin. pete, thank you very much. back to your gigantic breakfast.

information and drawing up assessments based on their informed opinion. >> "the washington post" said this on how they differ. the bureau true to its law enforcement roots wants facts and tangible evidence to prove something bee beyond a reasonable doubt. the cia is more comfortable drawing inferences from behavior. >> what this means that the agency -- the raw intelligence comes in from the officers out in the field. it gets into the system, inside the cia. the reports guys, they write it up. the analysts take it. they combine with all the other intel that's coming in from the very pieces and they make an assessment. that's their job. an analyst, that's his job. he or she makes the estimate -- the assessment, it goes out into the white house, and this is based on, you know, the tasking that comes from the white house. once it gets into the white house, once it gets with the
4:48 am
national security adviser and his team and her team, then, you know, that's where people talk about how it becomes politicized. sure, yes. there's an editorial process where they start picking and choosing what they are going to pay attention to and it's not just the current administration or the next administration. it's the previous administration and down through the ages since the beginning of the u.s. intel system. >> so, mike flynn, lieutenant general, he's going to be national security adviser for president-elect in 2015 came out and said listen the cia under president obama has been politicized, dismissing a lot of its conclusions. have you heard that? does he have a case there? that's before he got this job. >> right. and to be fair, general flynn who is extremely well experienced and very capable individual, he's had his differences with the cia, both when he was in the military and now that he's out. it's not always been a smooth relationship, and in part when he was with dia, the defense
4:49 am
intelligence agency, he was looking to put more responsibility in the dia. it was his turf and so he was trying to take some of that responsibility from the cia in a sense but he's had this rocky relationship. has the cia become politicized? frankly, people are expecting me to say this. no, i think at the very top you have a political appointee, director brennan who has been with the agency for a long time and has been working now with the obama administration. has a very close relationship with president obama. so people are going to say, well, that's political. and maybe it is, maybe it isn't. i don't know. it's above my pay grade. i can tell you the p people that work inside the agency march on with the tasking, whichever administration is in charge, those people work constantly just to deliver the intelligence through the system. once it gets outside the cia, yes. it's a political element to this, and the part -- the people on both sides are going to pick and choose this thing to death, and they are going to make their own case. >> all right.

it is a startling statistic about health in america. life expectancy is now down for
4:54 am
the first time in more than two decades. we're not living as long. as the life expectancy drops, government health care rises. are they related? here to weigh in is dr. nicole sapphire. thank you for being here again. >> good morning. thank you for having me. >> why do you think that is? why is it going down? >> it is true the best measure of wellness of a country is looking at the life expectancy and for the first time since early 1990s we're seeing a decline in 1993 is when we were dealing with the aids crisis and all these flu deaths and what we're seeing now is completely different reasons for our life expectancy to go down. i'm extremely happy to say that cancer deaths have gone down which really confirms what we're doing with our increased cancer screening and treatments are really having an impact. unfortunately, many other of our leading causes of death have all worsened, including cardio vascular disease, stroke, and
4:55 am
diabetes. all of those risks may be drastically reduced just with behavioral and lifestyle modifications. >> i thought with obamacare, more people have insurance unless you opt out, wouldn't you think life expect yancy would go up are they related? >> some people may think that they are. what we have seen is a lot of aca, millions of americans have gain health insurance that has drastically reduced health care debt. the da da is slow to come out to show that we're improving health and wellness. what has happened with the with the implementation of aca we're in the midst of a physician burn out and shortage crisis due to all these newly insured cases. >> are you in favor of the cures act? >> it's a sense that the
4:56 am
government is showing they are funding more health care services. it's wonderful that they are so dedicated in curing cancer and evolving all these new treatments. as we've seen our cancer rates of death have gone down, which is wonderful. unfortunately, what is happening we're taking a lot of funds from the very necessary public health programs like tobacco and obesity programs to fund this. what we need to be doing to improve health care in america we need to foster the doctor-patient relationship. we need to make our doctors happier and treat them better. we also need to hold patients accountable for some of their lifestyle choices that are negatively affecting their health. >> thank you so much. great information. we have a fox news alert. the president-elect made it official, rex tillerson is his

5:04 am
sector. >> guess who knows a lot about lawyer -- politics, laura ingraham does. >> i think the tillerson pick is frankly pretty genius. >> why? >> because he's someone who is not ideological which frankly right now in our foreign policy, i think, is really important. in our foreignf pragmatic policy, both with the way we deal with the middle east, with china, and are -- with russia. the idea that these career politicians, some of them are really upset that rex tillerson hasn't been a career diplomat, i think to myself, we've had a lot of career diplomats, and some of them have made catastrophic decisions, and given advice that has frankly proven to be quite calamitous for the united states. it might be a time for this country to have someone in that position to whoes the players,
5:05 am
who knows the field, and is going -- he doesn't need to prove anything. he's already been the ceo of the top oil company in the world. he knows pretty much, you know, every major country that we're going to be dealing with, and that is incredibly useful for this nation. the career folks, it's like they are worried their secret world might be invaded by someone who might show them up. >> you know, laura, though, right now, you watch the legacy media, and all the concerns, you know, this guy who has had dealings all around the world, he's friends with vladimir putin. he got that award. of course, he got the award because he wound up getting the drilling rights under the arctic in russia for exxon and dealt exxon in with the russian national oil company but that fits into the narrative right now about the ties to russia and oh, by the way, russia rigged things so that donald trump would win the election. >> well, i have a lot to say
5:06 am
about that, but number one the idea that you're successfully getting russia to give up some of their territory for drilling that will help millions of american investors in pension funds, mutual funds, individual investors and the employees of the united states of exxon mobil. i don't get that. it seems that really smart. number two, the idea that he's going to be criticized, trump, for having this man rex i willer -- tillerson in this position when barack obama decided to push through this iran deal that now allows boeing to sell 70 or 80 commercial aircraft to the islamic republic, you could argue that both ways, i understand, but knowing what we know about the islamic republic, the largest state sponsor of terrorism, we decided to trust them with this flawed iran deal and obama was crowing about how this was going to be good for world stability
5:07 am
and now tillerson is the problem? i just find this to be ridiculous. when we needed the left to be really serious and helpful with the former soviet union, when we needed them back in the 80s, they were frankly siding against american interests. now that donald trump is president, now suddenly they are all tough on russia. i mean, it's just hilarious. >> con doll leeza rice put this on facebook. rex tillerson is an excellent pick for secretary of state. i know rex as a successful businessman and patriot. he will represent the interests and values of the united states with resolve. that's from the establishment from inside the state department to the outside and that was confirming basically the rumor that she recommended him. >> i think that both she and baker and cheney, they all like tillerson. i'm not someone who says oh, because the try up vir rant of
5:08 am
the bush administration supports him it's a bad thing. trump has had a -- president-elect trump has had really good judgment. you see all the intrigue at trump you are tower, the video of everyone going in. you look at most of these picks, i think he's had excellent judgment. he's taken his time on the one i think was most important. secretary of state. he put in fabulous people at defense. i think he's going to have more announcements this week. i think it's an interesting and frankly diverse experience that we're seeing in this cabinet. contrary to what you are hearing from, you know, "the new york times" and all the rest. it's pretty impressive so far. >> i wanted to ask you about this. hillary clinton's top political adviser, john podesta, we read all of his emails. said that the campaign is supporting an effort by members of the electoral college to request an intelligence briefing on the foreign intervention in the presidential election. what do you think?
5:09 am
>> before they cast their vote. >> this is out now bordering on utterly sad, pathetic, predictable. there is an inability on the left, on hillary supporters to accept that they lost this election. they lost and they lost handily in the electoral college. so the first thing they wanted to do is say that the electoral college has to be done away with. they wanted to say that. then they wanted to say that it was james comey's fault for putting that letter out to congress. then they wanted to say it was russia involved in the election. anything except their ideas failed and they have failed the rust belt of this country and the manufacturing base of this country terribly, and the political correctness, the identity politics, people are just tired of this, and they can't face that. so what they really have to do and what this is really about is they have to give these activist groups something at christmastime. look, we're still fighting for you, we have fight left in us
5:10 am
now the electoral college getting a briefing. i don't care if they get one 0 or not. donald trump is going to be president of the united states. what they have to do is raise a lot of money to show that they are still relevant in a nation that i think wants to move on. >> when is george soros going to be tired of losing money? democrats are trying to get together and get some group therapy going. mayor de blasio said this. many new yorkers may be feeling distressed or vulnerable following the election results. we have seen the concerns expressed on social media and we are monitoring them closely and they are going to provide this assets for people to tap into. so if you want -- if you are feeling bad, laura, you could come here and tap into some of our social services. >> when i'm walking into fox and i'm with you guys in the new york bureau at fox, i feel like i need a therapy dog to get me
5:11 am
from my hotel to fox because of the number of poor homeless people that are just strewn about the streets now this time of year. de blasio, look at the shiny object over here, so you don't focus on the fact that new york is at a gridlock of homelessness, increased crime, and let's not even speak of what happened to poor seventh avenue where you can't drive downtown anymore because of the pedestrian walkways and the bike lines. they are trying to show that they still have some fight in them and they are representing people, but in the end, either people's lives are getting better in a city like new york or they are getting overtaxed, overregulated, and it's just not as pleasant a place to live as it used to be, so i think that's a lot about what's going on and how are we the country that took the beach of normandy if we need a therapy dog every time things don't go our way? >> the good thing for new yorkers, by the way, new york
5:12 am
city went 80% to donald trump's opponent, hillary clinton, but the mayor has reassured new yorkers that he is going to stand up to that bully donald trump. whatever he tries to do in washington, d.c., mayor de blasio is going to resist. >> after 1ek a.m., he likes to sleep in and go work out. >> again, new york is such a wonderful, interesting, vibrant place, and i have to say there are a lot of friends of mine in new york who are a lot of trump fans and democrats who are not at all wild about de blasio to put it kindly. they are fed up with him and this just adds to the narrative what a goof ball he's become. he's a tall, looming figure but a complete and utter goof ball. none of it makes anyone's lives better, none of it solves the problems that new york is facing today. they are going to tax people out of the city. they are going to drive people out of the city. if you are a chinese billionaire or some other type of

5:49 am
during this political process. the political process, i believe the race card was played against donald trump a lot simply because it appeared to be effective until it got old. that racial narrative. we need to get past that racial divide and we can come together and realize that we are all citizens of one country and we need to unit. that's why we have the national diversity coalition. we founded the national diversity coalition together and we have so many different ethnic groups represented in this coalition and we're all working together for the benefit of the american public and mr. trump is behind it. he's hadn't it 100%. >> thank you very much. we know you got a very busy day. >> thanks for having me. >> thanks for what you are doing. >> maybe we'll get you and brown here tomorrow. >> yeah. tomorrow morning. there's a new film out this christmas that's breaking tradition. we have two stars of the film
