the show that is the sworn enemy of lying, pomposity, smugness and groupthink. ♪ >> hello, everyone i am dana perino with kimberly guilfoyle, bob beckel, jesse watters, and greg gutfeld. it is 9:00 in new york city and you are watching "the five" ." as the mounting threat from north korea continues to grow, trumps that he would be honored to meet with the leader of course under the circumstances. then candidate obama was asked the same question in 2007. >> would you be willing during
the first year of your administration to meet with the leaders of iran, syria, venezuela and north korea in order to bridge the gaps? >> i would. the reason is this. the notion that not talking to countries is punishment to them -- which has been the guiding diplomatic principle of this administration is ridiculous. >> listen to what president trump said earlier today about the danger our troops face north -- from north korea. >> how safe are our troops along the militarized zone and our allies? how safe are they with some of the defense systems that we have provided? >> nobody is safe. who is safe? the guy has nuclear weapons. i would like to say they are safe but they are right there. nobody is safe. we are probably not safe over here. if he gets the long-range
missiles, we are not safe either. >> earlier we had jack keane commenting on whether he thinks president trump would meet with kim jong soon. >> i think that's always a possibility with this president. he puts huge amounts -- his ability to make a deal. they have accomplished that. what president trump is trying to get them to stand down from is advancing the weaponization of ballistic missiles. that is what he is trying to do. get them comfortable. say look, we are not coming after you. you are going to stay in power as long as your people are wanting to keep you in power. i don't know if that relaxes kim or not, frankly. >> greg, a meeting with the president would be something that might lift him up. it might give him attention or it could be a way to scare the chinese into thinking they need to do more in order to help us so we don't actually meet with him one on one. what do you think the strategy is? >> i don't think it's a new
strategy for donald trump. he turns unpredictability into a pattern. he starts with a pattern. you don't have to be smart to be a tyrant. as a dictator you can just kill your enemies. it's tough dealing with adversaries in a republic. he did this from everybody from ben carson to mitt romney. he is a salesman. everything is up for negotiatio negotiation, including who you negotiate with. people trust you if they trust the negotiator. you can say well, you didn't like him when president obama went on the apology tour. when he appeased around the world but us because we didn't trust him as a negotiator whereas trump, who has the same idea but you go, i think you can probably wrap kim around his finger if you wanted to -- maybe by the end of a meeting with kim, he will be wearing a red hat and saying, lock her up.
it's because that's possible. what's different from 2007 is at the situation is different and more dire. i guess we don't exactly know what the mental state is of kim jong un but possibly flattery in terms of saying he would be honored to meet with him might be a way to come to the table? >> obviously he does think and an unconventional way that people aren't used to. the way that he handle things, whether it's negotiating business deals, trade, everything. it would be unprecedented and you don't want to put american people in a position that will be -- we don't know 100% everything about this guy in terms of who we are dealing wit with. nevertheless, i think it's good to at least float it out there and show the world they are willing to have talks and discuss this.
you are not somebody that wants to come in and drop bombs. you are striving to achieve peace and stability in a geopolitical area that has been really troubled for a long time. as it relates to president obama, at the time of making those statements, you are absolutely right. a lot has changed and really escalated in terms of the level of national security threats to the united states. i think that president obama would be the first person to say that because that is one of the most important things that he has stressed in his meeting with president trump. >> the medium really just accepted that president obama would be the hope and change thy were looking for. and maybe that was why they didn't criticize him as much. what do you think? >> not only did he say he was going to meet with the iranian dealer without any preconditions but he shook hands with hugo chavez, she saw a baseball game with castro in cuba.
i don't know if trump is just getting caught up -- he thinks he can manhandle people but i think he's an american first president whereas obama thinks he's going to cave to the adversary so people trust president trump to negotiate more effectively. but like you said, you there are risks. when you put in american prestige on the line and our credibility and you get into a negotiating situation and comes out with nothing, then you look bad. it weakens us. it bolsters his credibility internationally. at home also. if anyone can do it, it can be president trump. >> bob, you have a lot of different experiences on the international stage. was north korea a factor back then, in the 1800s? >> 1823. >> i know, in the '70s. [laughter]
>> he might as well be negotiating with ronald mcdonald. this guy is a tyrant. a thug. the idea that the president of the united states would go and talk to this dirty, ugly man who has killed people left and right, put them in gulags. he's the president of the united states. i don't like donald trump but i would like him a lot less if he did something like that. if this happens, other countries -- we could get rewarded too. >> it has already been happening with iran. >> and we will give you a lot of money. you will pee on us. >> giving this guy a stage. >> you know what i think it's interesting? there's a little bit of hypocrisy going on with the lef left. the left shouldn't love trump. the left should love trump.
he doesn't want to use force unless it's a sure win. he's less of a hawk than hilary would be. >> i took this line -- >> what about the federalist? they are jealous. >> preemption is easier than post and passion. >> i don't know what that means. >> why would you quote something we don't understand? >> i don't get it. >> preemption, it's a play on words -- getting the weapons is easier than dealing with it after. >> i got it. >> oh, my god, . >> nuclear ionization. you should be praising president trump for talking. >> you shouldn't do this wrap of yours and look at me the whole time. we are not all for nuclear eyes
asian >> where did you come up h that? >> we are going to do another segment on a bunch of people and they're going to be running around and you're going to call them democrats. china is -- they are trying to get china to play a major role in this. i am not not so sure. will they? if you are china and if you try expand your geopolitical reach in the pacific, already you're talking to singapore and thailand and the philippines. they probably think it's a pretty good idea for the united states to focus on north korea. >> in the media, we have always struggled with the things donald trump says. you end up finding yourself trump explaining or going, i
don't get it. but he has this rare gift -- under the right circumstances. it essentially negates. >> what would those circumstances be? don't they spend like years thinking about where to put the water and who talks first and who shakes her hand? these things take years. >> we will give kimberly the last word. it was about all the summits between reagan and gorbachev. they did spend a lot of time talking about where they would sit. >> one thing for sure, kim jong un is not leaving there. so donald trump would have to go there. that's what i'm saying, they are not going to put the president in a security risk situation like that. they can facetime each other? >> the wonders of technology. >> it's like sharon osbourne
♪ >> saturday was the white house correspondents dinner versus donald trump's rally. it was like king kong versus godzilla. [roaring] >> tonight we must recognize there are threats to freedom here in the united states. we must remain vigilant. the world is watching. >> i could not possibly be more thrilled than to be more than 100 miles away from washington,
spending my evening with all of you and with a much, much larger crowd and much better people. right? >> what a just took position team act he what a juxtaposition. the media said there were no winners, meaning they lost. trump's rally wasn't anything new except for one key live. >> a large group of hollywood actors [boos] >> and washington media are consoling each other in a hotel ballroom in our nation's capital right now. >> and then the media proved them right by consoling themselves in a hotel ballroom right now.
>> we cannot ignore the rhetoric that has been employed by the president about who we are and what we do. freedom of the press is a building block of our democracy. >> the applause. afterward, the night's comedian showed ripped on trump for not showing up. what if we hadn't shown up? >> we have to address the elephant in the room. at the leader of our country is not here. and that it's because he lives in moscow. he has a very long flight. >> you have to be more proficient perfect now, more than ever. this event is about celebrate in the first amendment. >> the man who tweets everything that enters his head refuses to acknowledge the amendment that
allows him to do it. in four hours, donald trump will be tweeting about how bad nikki ménage bombed at this dinner. and he will be doing it completely sober. >> mocking president trump for not showing up is like a hunter complaining there aren't any ducks when you are surrounded by them. you just choose not to shoot those ducts. someone should tell him it's not trump canceling campus beaches or local parades, it's the progressive left. if the media calls trump out for making other plans, they should train their sights on the true oppressors. those applause paying ones around those dinner tables i haven't shut up since trump won. while you avoid those in your mitts who wish to silence all opposition, you rag on president trump.
that sad contradiction might be the biggest joke of the night. >> greg, we are ready to go to the 12:00 turnaround time. >> i'm sorry, did i take some time out of your response? go for it. >> my response? my response, i know you were loving that crowd in pennsylvania. >> it was brilliant. if you wish you thought of it, bob. >> i don't think it was much of anything. >> if people mock you, you hold a counter event and steal their thunder. >> you said that they rip on president trump for coming or not coming but the whole dinner is a roast about the president -- whoever the president is. and they have a chance to respond. >> i think it was brilliant that he said screw it, i'm not going. >> he said he would go next year and did about 14 interviews with all of those reporters.
>> he didn't give them a chance and here is the deal. that night, we could have covered it. >> we did your show instead. >> it was much more exciting. >> trump at his typical worst. when this guy get something done, something solidly done, then we will talk about his great strategic stuff. >> gorsuch, trilling, those things didn't happen. i think he should've spoke out more about the real oppression against free speech. that was my only problem. >> i wasn't there. i'm not sure i was invited this time. i was on vacation. >> i think you were mentioned. >> really? i read the transcript of some of the jokes. i thought it was funny on paper. and then i watched the delivery. it wasn't that funny. these jokes go over everyone's
head because if it's a republican president, but the democratic president, i don't take too much stock in it. but to claim that you are a victim, no one takes you seriously. other countries -- journalists got thrown in jail and these people get thrown parties. i think people over there take it very seriously. >> they don't care. >> they love one trump -- >> he is beating up on the press, that's the most popular thing the president does. >> what does kimberly think? >> do you want to ask me a question, greg? >> they had a focus on journalism for once. i think you made it better.
>> pulling numbers showed that most americans disprove and distrust the media. there's no time for self-satisfaction or smugness. i think they've completely diss ignored his warning. people aren't so thrilled. they also are not loving the media. that's been a big thing in the coverage. it fell a little flat and people were drawn to the trump rally because it was great showmanship. it was trump at its best, having one of his rallies with people that support them. he took ownership of the situation. for him to go next year, i think that would be good. he owned the night. for him, i think it was a win. he did things on his own term. >> you are assuming he would be around at this time next year. >> what are you assuming? >> that he would be impeached.
>> i would insinuate -- >> where is he going to be? >> it was a great joke. i thought he did a pretty good job except for this one blind spot, when he said he found out president trump was president it was like walking into panera bread and seeing that your high school teacher was working there. like, what happened? >> they were saying you dropped the ball because they were missing half of america. >> re-banded in 2017. >> we must move on. up next, more climate change hysteria from hollywood and others on the left. leo dicaprio among those marching in the street over the weekend to convince the world that the planet is in peril.
♪ >> here is some breaking news. some liberals are really upset about climate change. on saturday, tens of thousands took the streets of washington, d.c. al gore and leonardo dicaprio were there. some people have canceled their subscriptions to "the new york times" ," becausef an op-ed challenging the certainty of climate change. he believes that man has contributed to rising temperatures throughout the years. greg, your favorite subject. >> nobody likes assumptions challenged even in their comfy
sweaters. there is a difference here. he is not a skeptic. he is a luke warm or. he believes the climate predictions and models are often wrong. he's saying it's getting warmer and it's something we should keep a careful eye on, that it's not extreme on any side yet they throw him out because they demand lockstep. they can't tolerate even a mildly different opinion. at least we have liberals on fox news. the viewers can get angry at bob but they also love bob. ivory twitter, they love bob. we have different opinions and as angry as ever viewers get over certain opinions, they come back because they know we are human. >> dana, what did you make of this outrage? >> i have been a reader of him
for many years. this was his first column at "the new york times." he really knows how to make an interest. entrance. people wanting to cancel their subscriptions because he challenged their safe space, that is quite a feat. if you are a lukewarmer but you could also say i guess it's happening but should we spend a trillion dollars a year and not get any results from it? that apparently is off-limits. >> imagine, you are a lukewarme lukewarmer. it doesn't sound very appealing. >> i am a lukewarmer. at the left says they love diversity but not opinions. they left says they love tolerance but they don't tolerate conservatives. they riot or shut everything down. they try to shut down fox news. they riot on the streets of berkeley.
remember those democrats in wisconsin? they ran across state lines so they didn't have to vote for the budget. i think you are seeing a bunch of crybabies and whiners. they are treating conservatives like a virus. >> i sit next to you all the time, how do you think i feel? editorial editor of "the new york times," he is a friend of mine. the head of the atlantic, went over to "the new york times." there does have to be more of this middle debate about facts. he's not a diehard liberal, he believes very strongly in facts. what he's doing here is saying this guy has something to say. a lot of people agree with him. a lot of people think i don't know all the facts, man is responsible for some of this but beyond that, what can you say? i don't know what the answer is.
>> the executive editor said it didn't we learn from this past election that our goal should be to understand different views? that's one of the reasons they brought him onto the opinion side of "the new york times." >> now he is there. he has made quite a splash, a luke warm splash. give lead leonardo dicaprio cr. he sat down with the president and discussed issues, much like al gore did. i think that's very positive in terms of being able to engage the good dialogue when you don't see the enthusiasm coming from the left usually. they don't like it or agree with it. they don't want to deal with it. >> i question -- they want our money. you are talking about a trillion dollars a year over a century. $100 trillion. you could cure starvation and so many diseases.
if you could and terrorism with a fraction of $100 trillion paid whitley what leonardo dicaprio wants to do and his apostles is use that money based on faulty climate models and predictions that may increase the temperature a slight degree which may or may not in fact be beneficial. it's insane. >> on both sides, we will reach a critical mass and say the balance here says this. this is the amount onecessary t. we will never sit on $1 trillion. >> you would agree there are areas of more pressing media concern. >> clean water. >> clean fuel. >> donald trump was president. i think there are a lot of more pressing issues. >> far left protesters going wild around the world on may day. we will tell you what they are demanding, when "the five" comes
♪ >> today is may 1st, the day every president since dwight eisenhower has proclaimed as loyal today. it's more commonly known as mayday, when the left mobilizes to rally for workers rights. hundreds of thousands of demonstrators took the streets earlier to rally in cities like new york, chicago and l.a. overseas, things got out of control. [yelling] >> so, kimberly, i believe if these protests come to this side
of the ocean, i think it will help president trump because the more people see this type of out-of-control behavior, the more it hurts democrats. do you agree? >> i do agree. we have the proof and evidence, from the last american election that we just experienced. when you saw people acting out of control and committing acts of violence, totally lawless and disrespecting public property, disrespecting small businesses and looting. it's awful. nobody wants to see that. throwing fire at the police. it is completely not only just uncivilized but illegal behavio behavior. i think it just strengthens the president's position and served him well in terms of the electorate. >> it plays into the law and order candidate. greg, how much of these people have legitimate policy beefs about policy and wages? or how much of it is just wanting to burn stuff?
>> it's essentially become a celebration of failure, saluting movements and beliefs -- that our histories losing propositions. if you want to remember mayday, look at venezuela. people are dying due to fake revolutions. mayday is short for may i ruin your day? you have people shouting at you while you are trying to get to work to feed your kids. who takes a personal day off at this? no, you go to the beach with their kids. clearly they don't have jobs. >> maybe that's why they are protesting. they don't have jobs. >> i'm not sure all of them are. >> i don't think that these types of riots are likely to happen here for a couple of reasons. like in paris, the unemployment rate for youth in paris is
unbelievable. they have a very activist left that is much more organized than ours because even had one make the cut off for the runoff in france. then in turkey, they are separating from a major political crisis with a president who has turned a dictator, who just won a noncredible election. basically, their freedoms are being stripped away. he is punishing girls and jailing journalists. they have much more severe problems in countries like that. i don't think donald trump has to worry about that coming anyte soon. >> why can't you guys behave yourselves? >> i had a feeling i would get that question. did you notice that what you wanted to happen -- those protests, these producers can't find anything like that. 2014, 2010.
>> that was mayday! >> that is not from today. >> yes it is. >> that is a huge -- >> it's from today. >> wait a second. starting to riot, i think that's important. when somebody has a big crowd and he says okay, throw them out. if you get a bill from the police, i will pay for the lawyer. that was president trump who said that. >> if this happened today -- do you have evidence that this is true? >> after every single tea party, when the left starts getting wild, george soros is nowhere to be found. >> the other thing too is hollywood has a number of shows portraying dystopian futures.
handmaid's tale. >> what is dystopian? >> the opposite of utopian. this could happen here, the handmaid's tale. marbles shield show. with the real dystopias happening now in certain countries that we can just turn on the tv. venezuela is an actual dystopia. look at the reality of the socialist hell. they look at america and they say nothing is happening. >> bob is going to be apologizing to the producers up ahead. the left is looking for a miracle to find a 2020 candidate to go up against donald trump. could mark zuckerberg be there answer? we will tell you what the billionaire is ahh. where are mom and dad?

unbeatable and 2020? >> i think anybody is beatable, but i don't think mark zuckerberg is the man to do it. the guy doesn't have a personality. he is brilliant. and a billionaire. i think everyone is jealous now. trump is out there testing the waters. zuckerberg, i don't even know what his voice sounds like. i just see him shaking hands with the pope. >> he's in a unique position to take advantage of his platform. they have a tremendous amount of information, whether you're liberal, moderate. all your personal information, what you like it, what you dislike. it could all be put into the voting algorithms. >> that's a very good point. the more you learn about voters and targeting them, it's amazing. >> he has that advantage. >> let me cut off the zuckerberg discussion. he won't make it.

landing. these strange people in a diner. what is this thing you called milk, where does it come from? does it come from a four-legged creature, i think i saw one out there? you are a 32-year-old billionaire in silicon valley. you have everything but you know you are going to die. the thing is, they are trying to figure out what else can i do. they are all consumed by living forever. they are trying to figure out ways to do that or get a more power. jesse is right. he's not a very social person. ironically, facebook began as an antisocial pool. it was a reaction -- it was his how you can rely and monitor their sentiments, to be able to see if they are nervous or stressed and then advertise that news and information to voters.
