1:02 pm
if you're looking at apparel or appliances, do that sunday. this is according to adobe analytics. cyber monday, known for the best deals on toys. and travel tuesday. tuesday is supposed to be the best for flights. so you're wondering, i'm at a best buy. what kind of deals can you get at this location. we reached out to corporate about an hour ago. they said they just launched 50 more deals, 50% off, launched only tomorrow. some discounts on apple watch wrist bands. we're seeing $150 off of ipads. the 65-inch tvs coming in at $600. not bad. if you're not near a best buy and you don't want to deal with the craziness, there's other deals going on. kohl's has probably the strongest sales right now in terms of the website.
1:03 pm
based off of what i was looking at, walmart discounts with iphone. best buy here, samsung deals. amazon, of course, they'll pitch their own products. so they're running hot on their own products. they also launched the lightning deals. you can see the crowds. we'll show you before i throw it back to you. self trying to get the deals, but you can shop online if you want to avoid crowds. it's kind of fun to rush here and pick up items like the x box and get it for $187. i don't know. i don't know. i love deals but i don't know if i want to wait in the cold. it's cold in new york. >> you're the best. have fun at the mall. we're going to the mall. connell mcshane is at roosevelt shopping center in new york. he's gouging the pulse of the shopper there's. connell, doesn't seem as hectic
1:04 pm
as the best buy. >> you know, it nearly is. i heard kristina is in the midst of it there. many stores opened last night and are staying open. we've told the foot traffic is strong, a lot of young people here shopping with friends, out for the experience, that kind of thing. you know, it has been strong. we're hearing similar stories around the country really with the usual black friday craziness. we have new video to show you from nebraska. charles, i don't know if you know this, but kitchenaid mixers are a big deal in nebraska. so big, they were worth fighting over. the pushing, the shoving to get the new mixer for the kitchen and for those folks. that was worth the wait and worth the fight. big picture, talking to people about how this year is shaping up. they say the thing that they
1:05 pm
noticed the most, the difference between in-store shopping and online shopping, that's all but gone. first to shoppers we spoke to in roosevelt field earlier in the day. listen. >> it's a tradition of ours to go every year. we get great deals. >> it's not that bad. >> no, this year was pretty good turnout. they opened at two different times. >> it's gotten crazier. we've been here since 6:00 a.m. >> now, to the new numbers that i mentioned from adobe on the online shopping, 28% increase as of 10:00 a.m. compared to last year. to the point we're on pace for $6 billion to be spent online this black friday. about the same for signer monday last year. that's where the difference is going away. thanksgiving day, 3.7 billion was spent online. so big discounts, things like tablets being down 33%. a lot of consumer electronics.
1:06 pm
a lot of deals here in many of the stores. one thing, sad that is not on sale i'm told a picture with santa claus that will run you $50. no offense to jolly old st. nick. >> leland: with the malls that frantic who can blame them. but investors are still selling on wall street. the dow jones industrial average dropped another 178 points. the s&p 500 now officially in correction territory. that means it's down more than 10% from the recent high. the dow not far behind as well. so will a strong holiday shopping season give stocks a lift? let's ask retail analysts in a frigid new york city where the bitter cold may be keeping some shoppers away. connell join us and heather is also also. and hetha, the numbers are huge.
1:07 pm
went isn't the market reacting? >> as we discussed a couple days ago, when the market reacts, us usually to earnings. shoppers, especially when it comes to consumer spending are all pent up and they want to go out and shop. if you think about it, if you look at disposable personal income, 29.1 billion. so people have the minute to go out. they want to go out, buy big ticket items. when it comes to weather, people have been at their homes, at their kitchen table spending. according to a study by palpal, 48% of americans have been using computers to go shopping online. adobe analytics reported at 5:00 p.m. on thanksgiving night, $1.7
1:08 pm
billion was spend online. in terms of weather, that won't have an impact on shopping. it's an apples and oranges comparison. >> neil: and that is up 29%. heather, here's the thing. we're seeing strong online sales. we're seeing strong mall traffic. you know, it's not one or the other. they're both strong. they sort of correspond to consumer confidence. wages finally going up. the market is in total free fall. what gives? >> i think that tech has a lot to do with the markets pulling back. look at facebook, netflix, google. consumer electronics are hot right now. hopefully people are buying smart phones. if you're buying an apple iphone, maybe that will help apple and apple can then lead the market higher.
1:09 pm
it's down below 20% in bear market or correction territory. it accounts for a big percentage of the s&p 500 and the nasdaq. so if people are out there bying smart phones, that might help the broader markets as a whole, charles. >> connell, perhaps the irony of this great news, dovetails to one of the series on wall street, this is amazing stuff but this is it. this is the peak. won't get better than this. >> right. how many teams have we heard the term "peak earnings" being used. that's the point. are we talking about past tense, future tense. if these are so great, is it because people have the disposable income to spend? the question is, will they continue to have that in the future. we have a big g-20 meeting next week. will trade be resolved. jerome powell will be speaking next week.
1:10 pm
what does he say about interest rates. all forward. as we go into the retail season, people will continue to spend. we don't know what will happen in january if tariffs are imposed. as of now, the consumer feels really positive about the economy. >> heather, how are we looking for the stock market? >> that depends on two things, charles, the fed and trade. tariffs are supposed to increase to 25% on january 1 and federal reserve chair jay powell, as he raises rates a quarter point in december, that may add more pressure to the markets. its all about interest rates staying low and if we get the
1:11 pm
trade disputes resowed, especially with china. >> leland: we hear from jay powell wednesday. maybe an answer sooner than later. thanks, guys. >> thank you. >> the city of tijuana, mexico declaring a humanitarian crisis as thousands mass near the border. president trump saying we'll shut down the entire border if need be. what would have to happen for that to happen. and people rushing stores and protesters, too. why is target a target? ♪ introducing the new capital one savor card. earn 4% cash back on dining and 4% on entertainment. now when you go out, you cash in. what's in your wallet?

1:15 pm
tijuana and tijuana doesn't want them there. they can't head north to the u.s. and they don't want to head back to the central american countries from which they came. hundreds of migrants marched through to protest the conditions in which they're living. they headed toward the border which could have led to confrontation with the u.s. border agents. the mexican police stepped in to stop the marches reaching their december nation. many of the 5,000 or so migrants in the tijuana area are crammed into a wet and muddy sports arena. they're desperate the process of applying for asylum is taking too long. the mayor of tijuana says they can't cope and can't afford the $27,000 a day it cost to house and feed the migrants. he wants the u.n. to step in and told reporters at city hall, i will not compromise the city's public services. i will not spend my people's

money and bring them into debt. the mayor has been seen wearing a red make tijuana great again hat. this standoff is likely to go on for some time. with the patience of the major and residents in tijuana running out, the mexican police trying to keep control and american troops waiting on this side of the border, the potential flash points are clearly many. charles? >> charles: thanks very much. president donald trump says he will shut the entire border down if need be. what exactly would have to happen for that to happen? kevin corke is near mar-a-largo where the president is staying. kevin? >> good afternoon, charles. the president hit the nail on the head. the message is simple. you solve the problem or we will solve it. we prefer to keep it on that side of the border that is the message. we've seen the pictures from jonathan and throughout the week covering this particular story.
1:17 pm
the clashes south of the border, charles. this is obviously not something that anyone wants to see. the administration is trying to stop thousands from coming here and overwhelming our asylum system. the president has gone so far to authorize the use of force should things spiral out of control. >> they have to, they'll use legal force. i've given the okay. if they have to, they have to. you're dealing with a minimum of 500 serious criminals. i'm not going to let the military be taken advantage of. i have no choice. >> the white house has said that those attempt to run, either wait in line like everyone else ordeal with the military. charles? >> charles: kevin corke, thanks very much. critics will be short of less a complete shut down. dan brewer said the president
1:18 pm
need to have that option. for, great seeing you. it's been too long. >> hi, charles. >> charles: we know this is -- we've never seen anything like this. president trump trying to stand firm, trying to use all the options. many would say it would be economic suicide to shut down all of the board. >> this is totally out of control. it's been out of control for 40-some years. finally we have a president willing to step up and do his job and protect the people of the united states. to see what's doing on is absolutely astounding. i would think that congress would understand the situation and that they need to do their job. we need or border secured. we need the wall built and we
1:19 pm
need to be kept sovereign. that's our responsibility of the federal government. they haven't done it, haven't done it for 40 years. we're at the tipping point and i think and believe that the public has had it. i think that there might be a possibility that congress will finally step up and get something done. this of course will be the perfect time to do it when they have the lame duck congress. >> charles: all eyes are on this caravan that we've been talking about for a long time. the numbers have ebbed and flowed. it remained at historic levels. you talk about congress. what can president trump do? i thought -- he's tried the carrot and stick approach. would he offer for daca i thought would have been the ultimate deal. this would have been a situation long gone. seems the resistance towards democrats with respect to the wall more than anything else. even when it comes to the daca recipients and the offer that
1:20 pm
president trump made them, seems like their resistance to the wall is a major tumbling block here. >> they want to poke their finger in the president's eye and to the people's eyes of america. i think the president has the authority to declare, you know, that we're going to close the border and economically that could become a problem. >> charles: but i'm asking, with all day respect, would that be it? listen, i know -- we know president trump, his strategy and he talks stuff and if he has to, he will back it up. the democrats saying do we let the president shut down the border and hope that he gets the brunt of the bad publicity or do we try to avoid all of this nonsense, don't shut down the border or the government and maybe finally come to a deal as the world is watching? >> you know, i'm hopeful that maybe they'll come to their senses and do their jobs and
1:21 pm
work him. we don't need a 100% solution one way or the other. we need our border secured and we need to enforce the rule of law. that's what our country is all about. obviously mexico has had a taste of it because for years, they were enabling everybody to come across the border. now they have it in their border states. this asylum thing is crazy. absolutely crazy. >> charles: the mayor of tijuana is upset. thanks, governor. it's been too long. hope to talk to you soon. thank you. >> thank you. >> charles: house judiciary republicans slapping former attorney general loretta lynch and james comey with subpoenas what do they hope to find? committee member andy bigs is here.

1:26 pm
not only that, what i have found is there's pontification that goes on. last time i interviewed peter strzok, the democrats were hollering and screaming and yelling and mr. comey knows that. he knows the worst place to find the truth is in a committee hearing where each person gets five minutes and 70 people asking questions. you never get to the bottom of it. so he wants to control this. he's a control freak and here's where he's going. i think we need to do it in a deposition, closed door. the transcript will be made public. that will be made public later. that's what he doesn't want to happen. >> charles: james comey did tweet that happy thanksgiving. got a subpoena from house republicans. still happy to it is in a light and answer all questions but i will resist a closed door thing because's seen enough of the selected leaking and distortions. let's have a hearing and invite
1:27 pm
everybody to see it. could there be a compromise? it's agree with you. it's frustrating to watch the five minutes, question, the person dragging their feet, somebody in the other party blocking and tackling. if there's a way to do it with the way you want, presenting the questions in public, would that be the perfect scenario? >> you can't get around to that. the other party will oppose that. you know what? mr. comey, when he conducts his investigations, he never wanted them made public. he knew the best way to get to the truth is have somebody sit down in a closed door deposition, they're sworn in and they make it. one of the things, charles, it's hilarious that guy that leaked information to the columbia professor a and his buddy is claiming that somebody will leak about it. it's a laugh riot. >> charles: he does know about
1:28 pm
leaking. >> he does. >> charles: he has expertise in the topic. it's true that while he has the power to do these things, he prefer it behind closed doors as well. i don't think anyone wants to become a circus. we're trying to avoid that. we'll see what happens there. i do also want to ask you because fox news is learning that acting attorney general -- i'm sorry. i'm going to let you go, congressman. >> okay. thank you. >> charles: happy day after thanksgivi thanksgiving. matt whitaker under investigation by a federal special counsel law office. allison barber has more. >> the office for the special counsel said they opened a case file to review cases of a hatch act violation involving mat whitaker. the special counsel says that they received two complaints,

one from senator sheldon white house, a democrat from rhode island and another from a watch dog group called american oversight. at issue, campaign contributions. whitaker ran for senatener iowa in 2014. according to the filings, the campaign received four contributions in january and february of this year. the department of justice declined to comment. a source close to whitaker pointed fox news to a advisory opinion from osc. it said that federal employees can participate in a fund-raising effort or if fund-raising efforts to get rid of campaign debt before they became a federal employee. the executive director of american oversight says there's more issues because whitaker didn't disclose it on financial forms. whisker has been under fire for russia probe comments. democrats are challenging his appointment as acting attorney

this whole shopping center is going to be thrown into a crisis. because this abandoned store will leigh a gapping hole in this economically viable community. >> target issued a statement regarding the demonstrators saying we expect their right to express their disappointment. going forward, we're focused with working with community leaders to make sure the properties are redeveloped in a way to make a positive impact. target is promising to preserve the jobs by moving them to other stores. charles? >> charles: thanks, mike. it's not just target under fire. senator bernie sanders taking aim at walmart on this busiest shopping they saying america's wealthiest family can afford to pay its workers $15 an hour. joining me, gianno caldwell. listen, it's racial tones, it's
1:36 pm
underpaying overtones. but there's some economics that target is shutting stocks. the stock is down 17%. they have issues. it's really unfortunate that the stores they're closing are in african american communities, especially when you consider the fact that there's bragging, talking points when it comes to bragging unemployment points. you have one of these retailers shutting down on the south side of chicago. it's unfortunate for those people. i want to see what will happen with this store, that it doesn't just become an empty parking lot and ensure that people can get the jobs and have the salaries that they deserve. >> gianno, when target made the decision, you think they looked at profit and losses or color? >> i'm going to be honest with you, i think it's profit and loss. this is a target that i know very well. i lived in that community at one time. one thing that i can say about
1:37 pm
the things that bernie sanders has been saying about walmart and others is so unfortunate a career do-nothing politician would advocate for capping ceo salaries when those individuals don't know what it takes to keep a job, may a payroll, hire employees or even struggle through down terms. so for them to be using that kind of rhetoric is disappointing and disenfranchises the business environment. what i can say what politicians do do, the heritage foundation said the next ten years, it's on average households receive $26,000 more in their bank accounts. if you're going to advocate for policies like that, you need to have corresponding policies that make business environments better. >> charles: real quick, gianno, in new york city, they give amazon $3 billion to move in to the city. the richest man in the world,

million is saying he cannot afford the cost of 4,600 people. he's asking for aid. he's saying it's a humanitarian crisis and he's also said that he will not spend his taxpayer's dollars on these people. so when you look at the united states, with we admitted over 22,000 and these people aren't coming for a month, they're coming forever last year, we are taking on a huge burden while the mayor of tijuana is calling ate crisis when he has to put people up for six weeks. >> charles: what is the moral of the story? what should people be taking away from that? >> at least the mayor of tijuana is not willing to pay the price of helping people get to another country where they will be taken care of forever at the taxpayer's expense because he doesn't want to spend -- it's a large city.
1:44 pm
1.3 million. he doesn't want to spend his people's money and asking the international community give him aid. there's a crisis here. the crisis is the crisis of what is fair and legal under international law. these migrants are choosing to come to the united states for economic opportunity and spending weeks going through mexico and not asking for asylum because it's not as good a place for them to move to. that's the real story. that's what the president is dealing with, the desire of people to circumvent or system by claiming asylum, in some cases legitimate and some cases not. they're claiming to get to an economic opportunity. there's 7 billion people on earth, 1.2 million are admitted to the country legally every year and these people would like to be among them but how do we allocate it appropriately? that's the discussion that doesn't happen in washington.

>> charles: they're going to come the way they come. i'm not sure they want to go through the legal process. to your point, they're not off refugees. you have amongst medium of them, strong able bodied men that don't look like they're repressed at all. doesn't trump have the authority, can he shut down the entire border? >> yes, he can. he can choose not to allow people to come across. this is the reason that people that pass through legally through the tijuana border every day are objecting to their mayor endangering their ability to participate in commerce that is a real legitimate issue that san diego and tijuana need to face, should we in fact see a solution that we don't see commerce shut down along our border, legal commerce. >> charles: maybe this is a message to congress say let's fix this thing. it's getting uglier every time.
1:46 pm
>> it has. >> charles: thanks, congressman. from our troops on the borders to the troops overseas, president trump taking heat for having yet to visit a war zone. is that criticism justified? bob o'neal is here. heart... or joints. but do you take something for your brain. with an ingredient originally discovered in jellyfish, prevagen has been shown in clinical trials to improve short-term memory. prevagen. healthier brain. better life. on our car insurance when we switched to geico. this is how it made me feel. it was like that feeling when you're mowing the lawn on a sunny day... ...and without even trying, you end up with one last strip that's exactly the width of your mower.
1:47 pm
when you're done, it looks so good you post a picture on social media. and it gets 127 likes. geico. fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more on car insurance.

1:49 pm
>> charles: president trump under fire for not visits troops on the war zone but maintains that he plans to do so in the future. is this criticism justified? joining me how, a navy seal that shot osama bin laden, rob o'neill. thanks for joining us. it's been two years in office for. trump. we have men and women active in war zones out there. you think by this time he should have gone out to visit them? >> thanks for having me,
1:50 pm
charles. i think that -- i've made a lot of phone calls today and yesterday talking to my friends that have retired and since got out. to them, they don't care if a president visits them in the war zone. when we in the height of the war, the presidents came to see us, it was more work. we had to stop the missions and do more security and beef it up for the president. it's good when a president visits you. if i was advising him, i'd tell him to get to afghanistan as soon as he can. with the mid-terms as highly contested and the campaigning the president did, he was busy. he's gone out of his way. he made a few calls to the trump. it would be good to get him out there. but again, this. is not going to get credit for anything. if and when -- when he goes over there, they'll talk about how much it cost to send him to the
1:51 pm
war zone. >> charles: they're calling him a war monger or things like that. but the men and women that i do speak to and know many the military act say that there's free decor as that level hasn't been there in a decade. the amount of money that the president fought for, for modern equipment, to allow the generals to navigate the war and not have to ask for permission to strike the enemy, those kind of things matter so much more they're telling me than a visit would. >> a common answer that i got from my colleagues that they would rather have him in the white house dealing with the lawyers and the general officers making the rule of engagement to make war fighting more complicated. get the funding the right places like the new ships and the technology. overseeing t overseeing the troop is great.
1:52 pm
the military doesn't need to waste time talking about it. go over, see people in iraq and afghanistan. people are complaining that they're worried that people want to kill him in a war zone. the battle space owners and the commanders won't let a president get hurt going over there. they will do everything from advanced trips, flying in at night. from this point, still work on air force one, end the conversation. >> charles: i'm going to have a hard wrap. do you think it's right that we should be entering into peace negotiations with the taliban? is that the reality that we have to live with? >> it's a reality that we have to live with. we spent too much time in afghanistan trying to build a nation and a democracy. we should have left in 2005. keep troops at bagram air field. rehit these camps when they rebuild them. it's going to come to a
1:53 pm
negotiation. the taliban does want al-quaida there anyway. they want their valleys. we'll have to come down to a negotiation. i don't like it but they don't ask for my opinions anymore. >> charles: thanks, rob, for your service and thank all the men and women that we know freedom isn't free. they were out there keeping us free yesterday and everybodiry day. thanks very much. meanwhile, all signs are pointing to sales soars. so why aren't the markets doing the same thing? since my dvt blood clot i was thinking... could there be another around the corner? or could it turn out differently? i wanted to help protect myself. my doctor recommended eliquis. eliquis is proven to treat and help prevent another dvt or pe blood clot... almost 98 percent of patients on eliquis didn't experience another. ...and eliquis has significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. eliquis is fda approved and has both. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious
1:54 pm
and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. what's around the corner could be surprising. ask your doctor about eliquis.

>> charles: you are looking live at garden city new york where mall shoppers are getting down to business. new projections are coming in superstrong, but investors -- right now, they aren't buying it. for mcdonald's usa ceo on why that is. serious bifurcation between what we are seeing in the economy, even this week with sales online
1:57 pm
and off-line, and the stock market that's crumbling right before our eyes. >> you know as well as i do, the stock market is rationally irrational. i was out and about a number of miles today in several restaurants. people seem very optimistic. i talked to a couple of people in their late 50s. they feel confident that the issues of pre-existing conditions is going to be okay and just seemed generally optimistic. i talked to a number of guys who were in the construction business and they said they've never been harder at work and their wages are going up. they feel real strong about what's going on. the malls were jammed. i was shocked about how busy they wear. just walking to bigger balls. i'm not talking about best buy and target. they were really jammed. i thought in sarasota it was busy. i'm pretty optimistic about what's going on. >> charles: what's interesting to that point, reporters at a variety of whether they were
1:58 pm
stores, stand-alone stores, best buys or malls, a lot of young people out there, people were under the impression that young people don't want any parts of the mall anymore, but they were out there and they were out there and to your point they were upbeat, they were optimistic like everyone else. >> it's kind of interesting to me. i saw two significantly different populations. i live in the community that's got a lot of older citizens, but there were a lot of people, young people, that were going in and out of small businesses. it was interesting for me because i'm a small business guy in reality. people are talking about the neighborhood businesses and supporting local owners of businesses. i think that's fantastic. i think there is an overall general optimism that's created capacity for all of us. >> charles: real quick, bernie sanders out there pushing these retailers to go to $15. we've got a lot of
1:59 pm
-- what are your thoughts on that? at this point, how bad would it hurt the industry? it feels like they are going there anyway. >> you know, with the unemployment being what it is, wages will rise naturally because you are going to have labor shortages. i can see it right now. the average wage of all the fast food restaurants, they are going up pretty significantly. bernie sanders is an idiot, in my opinion. never once created a payroll, never run a business. he has no idea what he's talking about the all he wants to do, tax the rich, ruin trump, and destroy this country. he is incompetent beyond belief. i don't know what we waste our time even talking to the man. >> charles: a lot of people don't think he's an idiot. he had a lot of success in the midterms and i think he's taken over the democratic party. we did not want to underestimate the man for sure. ed, we always appreciate your expertise. make sure you tune in today for
