tv   Your World With Neil Cavuto  FOX News  March 20, 2019 1:00pm-2:00pm PDT

1:00 pm
see that spike? that's when the fed said we're probably not raising interest rates the rest of the year. they went into the green. then the dow went back down again. the best in business will sort it out as "your world" with neil cavuto begins right now. >> he's a whack job. there's no question about it. i don't know him. i think he's doing a tremendous disservice to a wonderful wife. kellyanne is a wonderful woman. i call him mr. kellyann the fact is that he's doing a tremendous disservice to a wife and family. she's a wonderful woman. >> neil: the president talking about kellyanne conway's husband there. here's the interesting thing about that. kellyanne did respond but not to defend her husband but the president saying that about her husband. it's a pattern, a weird one but consistent one. the president blasts but those
1:01 pm
that he blasts don't blast back. and when it comes to republicans on the receiving end of it, letting it go. welcome. glad to have you. i'm neil cavuto. want you to think about that for a second. the president called george conway a whack job and a loser and his wife lets it go. calls the late john mccain worse things, his old senate pals let it ride. i'm not talking about georgia's johnny isakson and lindsey graham that tweet about their glowing colleague but defending the president that bashes him. and the same with paul ryan. the president ripped for not doing enough for going after democrats even after ryan helped deliver the crowning achievement, the big tax cut that was rejected by all democrats. of course, there's mitch mcconnell blasted for not doing more to end the filibuster in the senate even though mcconnell almost single handedly security
1:02 pm
two supreme court nominations for the president in the senate. maybe these guys figure it's really not worth the fight. maybe they calculate you rip him back, he will rip you to shreds. it's how rex tillerson found out he lost his job and how mike pompeo jokes he will find out how he loses his. just ask jeff sessions a punching bag. a lot of these guys take the hits and hoping the machine gun fire out of the white house will find another target. usually the same response, no response. better to duck and wave than to raise a finger back. money of this should mask the president's clear victories here. that's what happens when you take all the credit and you spread all the blame.
1:03 pm
after a while, your friends wonder if you're up to the fight or whether those are willing to be in the fight with you. just not now. maybe not even soon. maybe in this age of trump, it's better to take the blow than risk a blow-up. no matter how much it hurts you or demeans you or makes average folks wonder if there's any backbone to you. it's why spouses stay silent when their significant others are bashed and former speaks leave without a fuss even when their accomplishments are trashed. they figure it's not worth it. a silence that isn't only damaging but all the more so because it's so deafening. let's to to john roberts at the white house with the fallout of this. john? >> good afternoon to you, neil president don't forget reince priebus was the first to learn that he was fired by tweet. the thing that is going on with the president, kellyanne conway and her husband, george, have an unusual pathology. over the weekend and monday,
1:04 pm
george conway kept tweeting an't the fact that he believed the president had some sort of mental disorder, narcissistic personality disorder, suggested the president was not mentally stable enough to hold the office of the president. the president fought back. kellyanne conway stayed silent until today when she did a brief phone interview with political when she said of the president, do you think he shouldn't respond when somebody, a nonmedical professional, accuses him of having a mental disorder? kellyanne conway siding with the president. she said the president is obviously defending me. he can say, honey, you're a distraction, we love you, you'll always be with the family but be with your kids. go make a million dollars an hour. go do that. it's the opposite. so the president and kellyanne conway defending each other and meanwhile, kellyanne conway's
1:05 pm
husband, george, is twisting in the wind by himself. there's some people speculate that maybe the two conways are setting themselves up for a carville madeline thing after kellyanne conway leaves the white house. that is only speculation. the president this afternoon -- this just happened, neil -- going after senator john mccain again in a huge way at the only plant left in the united states that builds tanks. it's the lima, ohio tank plant where they build the m-1 abrams tank. the president that renewed his feud with john mccain over the weekend over the dossier that john mccain said he thought and he would turn it over to the fbi. the president going after mccain on that and his obamacare vote this afternoon. listen to this. >> i've never liked him much. hasn't been for me. i've really probably never will.
1:06 pm
but there's certain reasons. john mccain received a fake and phony dossier. john mccain got it, he got it. what did he do? he didn't call me. he turned it over to the fbi hoping to put me in jeopardy. when he had the chance to do it, he voted against repeal and replace. he voted against at 2:00 a.m. remember thumbs down. we said what the hell happened? he said two hours before he was voting to repeal and replace. he went thumbs down. badly hurting the republican party, badly hurting our nation. >> now, senator john mccain's daughter megan mccain over the weekend showed outrage over what the president said about her father. today on "the view" seems to sense the irony in john mccain continuing to hit the president's goat. listen here. >> i think if i had told my dad
1:07 pm
seven months after you're dead you'll be dominating the news, he would think it's hilarious that our president was so jealous of him that he was dominating the news cycle in death as well. >> johnny isakson a close friend of john mccain didn't have any irony about it at all. listen to what he said earlier this afternoon. >> it's deplorable what he said. that's what i called it from the floor of the senate seven months ago. it will be deplorable seven months from now and i will continue to speak out. >> there you go. some of the president's republican colleagues slamming him for what he said about john mccain. we thought going into today the feud with john mccain might be over. but then suddenly out of the blue at the tank plant, the president said i got asked about john mccain. let me tell you what i have to say about that. really quite interesting.
1:08 pm
>> neil: he cannot let go. thanks very much. republicans that largely ignore this thing with the exception of folks like senator isakson, do they do so at their own peril? franchesca chambers is with us. john summers and republican strategist, matt branard. largely silence out of republicans when they hear this. maybe saying we're used to, we move on from this. what is the deal? >> well it's not just that, neil. president trump is the president of the united states. lindsey graham says he wants to remain in a position to advise the president. if he's on his bad side, he wouldn't have him over. >> neil: is it worth that much that you would surrender a decade long friendship to stay in good relations with a guy house bashing your dearest friend? >> well, again, donald trump have the one in the white house.
1:09 pm
john mccain is no longer around to defend himself. he has megan mccain defending him as you pointed out earlier. as far as foreign policy goes and shaping that, donald trump is the one sitting in the chair. he's the commander-in-chief. so lindsey graham has said repeatedly that he feels the ability to advise the president on foreign policy, which so many times he's said that he disagreed with him on some of those issues, steer him in what graham steers him in the right track has outweighed that consideration. >> i know you're a former trump campaign director. just seems weird. >> i have to push back against this narrative that this is bashing or feud. these are concrete public policy critiques, positions that were taken, actions that were taken involving the mueller investigation. this is not underhanded or dirty or crude. these are public votes that he took. the record is open for criticism. i'll tell you something, maybe we can reconsider criticizing a politicians public record when the left laying off of ronald
1:10 pm
reagan. that never ended. >> neil: john mccain didn't hide the fact that he passed along that dossier early on, not knowing its origins or caring whether it was donald trump or anyone else. just saying as a patriot that it was a big enough concern to pass it along. after the fact, he villified for that. i can see what you're saying about votes on this matter -- >> it's not -- >> neil: did you hear that john mccain going into that night was going to voted for it? no one i talked to, followed that closely -- >> he campaigned against it as a presidential candidate, a senate candidate. he raised money on the promise of fighting to repeal -- >> neil: but that was not the means to do it. the president said that john mccain already told him that he was going to vote for it. no one i talked to who was involved in that said that was the case. >> who cares what does that have to do with criticizing his
1:11 pm
position -- >> neil: the president might have lied about it. does that bother you? >> lied that the fact that he repeatedly opposed october -- >> neil: no. you're obfuscating the clear fact here. he said john mccain was going to vote for that measure and hours later voted against it. do you have proof -- >> do you have proof that he didn't say it? i don't. the point of anger is the betrayal and the issue that he campaigned so hard against and voted to preserve ob. that is a fair -- >> and talking about the discourse here now. you don't have to be right or left to find that maybe you can be justified in making these remarks or thinking them. as president of the united states, they demean you. any opinion, my opinion only. i think they demean you. >> i don't think you get a pass on criticism of your public record because you're no longer with us. >> neil: i don't know, to you.
1:12 pm
i understand your allegiance to the president. but john, i'm wondering about the discourse and the debate this sets forward. are you wear about that? >> i agree with you. i want to go back to the fbi report. this can't be left unchecked. what the president is mad about, he's mad at john mccain doing exactly what he should have done. which is turn that over to the fbi. contrast that to what the president did and try to use that information, create an open line of communication with the russians that meddled in our election. in terms of what it's doing with discourse, this falls way below the level of the office. whether we're talking about attacking john mccain. again, sure, i guess you're free to criticize. but to what end? what is he at all hoping to get out of this? a very solid republican base that actually likes john mccain. so he's not doing -- he's not doing himself any favors by going after him. he's not doing any favors by name calling kellyanne conway's husband on twitter.
1:13 pm
all of these fall below the level of the office. he has too much executive time on his hands when there's -- >> neil: and he has a good commit story to tell. i think he steps on that message. this is my opinion. i am wondering about the muted response he gets from republicans that maybe don't want to trigger a tritter war so they chuck it up and take it realizing that he's the leader of the party, the leader of the country. i get that. i understand that. i can can't of respect that. but there is a line that now and then they can cross or test, can't they? >> to john's point earlier before we re-elected. how would you debate the fact that you lowered unemployment for women, minorities. so to what you were saying, that's what he was talking about, switched to john mccain. he did come back to that message and talked about the economy. nor the president's anger over john mccain, i remember being in the rose garden on the day that
1:14 pm
came came came back from arizona and came back from the obamacare vote. the white house delayeded an event in the rose garden so john mccain could speak on the floor. so they did at least have a sense that they thought his comments were going to be something positive for them. he's disappointed that that -- >> neil: i get that, his frustration in that. we'll see. guys, i appreciate you taking your time and perspective on it. but it occurs on the same day that we get a number of democrats responding in the weirdest of ways themselves, including push to shake up the supreme court by adding a lot of people to the supreme court. the son of the lays justin antonin scalia on that after this. it's america's most popular street name. but no matter what park you live on, one of 10,000 local allstate agents knows yours. now that you know the truth, are you in good hands? little things
1:15 pm
can be a big deal. that's why there's otezla. otezla is not a cream. it's a pill that treats plaque psoriasis differently. with otezla, 75% clearer skin is achievable. don't use if you're allergic to otezla. it may cause severe diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting. otezla is associated with an increased risk of depression. tell your doctor if you have a history of depression or suicidal thoughts or if these feelings develop. some people taking otezla reported weight loss. your doctor should monitor your weight and may stop treatment. upper respiratory tract infection and headache may occur. tell your doctor about your medicines, and if you're pregnant or planning to be. ready to treat differently with a pill? otezla. show more of you.
1:16 pm
ready to treat differently with a pill? at&t provides edge-to-edge intelligence, covering virtually every part of your healthcare business. so that if she has a heart problem & the staff needs to know, they will & they'll drop everything can you take a look at her vitals? & share the data with other specialists yeah, i'm looking at them now. & they'll drop everything hey. & take care of this baby yeah, that procedure seems right. & that one too. at&t provides edge to edge intelligence. it can do so much for your business, the list goes on and on. that's the power of &. & when your patient's tests come back...
1:17 pm
>> neil: remember when fdr tried to pack the court? it's a different theme among the presidential hopefuls. they're talking about
1:18 pm
overhauling the supreme court and talking about term limits. the son of antonin scalia speaks, chris scalia. chris, very good to have you. >> thanks, neil. great to talk to you. >> neil: what do you make of this push right now? maybe if we had more justices that we could spread this out. there wouldn't be one conservative edge on the bench. what would your dad think of that? >> well, it's pretty clear that one element of what some of the candidates are suggesting is just unconstitutional. a couple of the democratic presidential candidates have said that to pack the court, you should have 15 justices and you get them by having democrats pick five, republican pick five and ten justices pick five more. article 2, section 2 of the contusion makes clear that the president has power and the authority to nominate and with
1:19 pm
the advice and consent of the senate to appoint supreme court justices. so i mean, i don't know what democrats and republicans these candidates are talking about. but they certainly can't have justices appoint their colleagues. that would require an amendment that i don't think has a snow ball's choice anywhere of being ratified. as far as the number itself, the number of justices, that would have to be passed by a statute. the constitution doesn't have to say there's nine justices and there always haven't been. theoretically, that is something that could happen. that's maybe an argument worth taking seriously. but you know, when fdr did that, it didn't -- when he tried to do that, didn't go over very well. it did have an effect. it intimidated a supreme court or so that kind of conventional wisdom goes to being more amenable to what he was trying to do. he didn't get more justices but
1:20 pm
he did what he wanted done. it's possible that the democrats just by raising this threat of packing the court are trying to do something similar. >> neil: i was thinking of your dad and how he recoiled when the court was thrust in the national debate and didn't enjoy it. others have expressed that justices attending any president's state of the union for fear that they'll be dragged into the political back and forth. how do you think he will feel in this environment right now? >> again, i think it was something that he saw coming to a large degree. he saw how politicized things were getting even when he was on the court. he spoke about that a lot. you know, i don't know that he would be terribly surprised by some of these court-packing ideas. one of the problems that we're seeing here, this goes back to the early 2000s when democrats filibustered a lot of president bush's nominees and republicans
1:21 pm
responded any kind by filibustering a lot of obama's nominees. so the republicans, when the democrats filibustered gorsuch, democrats got rid of the filibuster. so it goes on and own. if democrats try to pack the court, i don't know why they're under the impression that the next time they have the senate and the next time they have the president, republicans will never be in power again because they're on the right side of history and history will feet -- >> neil: it can be fleeting. but fleeting are the days like in your dad's case, approved 98-0. that wouldn't happen in any environment now. >> unfortunately not. my dad used to say that once judges go back to abiding by their proper constitutional role of interpreting the law according to its original public meaning, judges will have less power and they will be less politicized. >> neil: you're right. you're dad was a pleasure. thanks, chris. >> thanks, neil. >> neil: more on the market

1:26 pm
overdelivered on their dovishness, neil. not only no rate hikes in 2019 but a majority of the members said there wouldn't be rate hikes next year. so they changed the verbiage of the statement. they alluded to consumption being weak. this is more than just weakness overseas or the trade war weighing on businesses. this is a nod to the u.s. economy slowing. that's how the market eventually interpreted it by the end of the day. >> neil: very interesting. alan, you can take that to say if the federal reserve is not going to hike, they must be worried about something, right? >> if you're a worrier. for me, there's no surprises here. nothing new. we talked about this months ago, that the markets were telling us there was not going to be any rate hikes in 2019. if you look up to 2020, the worry is there's going to be a rate cut. you look at the futures
1:27 pm
contract, that forecasting cut at the end of 2020. let's see maybe that's what tempered the enthusiasm -- >> neil: and the fed was signalling something like that, would that worry you? >> no. to me it doesn't matter. you're looking at interest rates. we're overanalyzing every little statement the last few years. we're on a path for ten years. nothing has changed. we were so worried about rates last year. now if you look at mortgage rates, the ten-year note, we have yields below where they were at this time last year. so that's been taken off the table. i like the strength of the market. let's look at the nasdaq. tech made new highs. highest since october. up 25% off the lows. it's still up and away. >> neil: danielle, he's always an optimist. excuse him. that's his nature. >> i want a cup of his coffee.
1:28 pm
>> neil: he's great. as are you. and i'm looking at mortgage rates and people say where are we going with mortgage rates? sounds like they're not going to budge. >> mortgage rates will come down more given where the bond market closed out the day. we're at the ten-year yield. 2.53%. that goes below the armageddon 2.55 level of december. as we saw this morning the mortgage bankers association, applications to purchase a home were flat year over year. that is indicative of the fact that even with falling mortgage rates, you're not getting the traction -- jay powell is not getting the traction he would like to see out of residential housing. that is signalling -- with all due deference to alan, potentially a weakening in the economy. >> neil: he doesn't need any deference. thanks both very much. we are following developments including this, new message from democrats to all of you high school students out there. you're 16, you're beautiful and
1:29 pm
hopefully soon you'll be a voter there. after months of wearing only a tiger costume, we're finally going on the trip i've been promising. because with expedia, i saved when i added a hotel to our flight. ♪ so even when she outgrows her costume,
1:30 pm
we'll never outgrow the memory of our adventure together. unlock savings when you add select hotels to your existing trip. only when you book with expedia. if you have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis, every day can begin with flakes. it's a reminder of your struggles with psoriasis. but what if your psoriasis symptoms didn't follow you around? that's why there's ilumya. with just 2 doses, a majority of people were clear or almost clear. and over time, even more people were clear or almost clear. all with dosing 4 times a year... after 2 initial doses. plus, ilumya was shown to have similar risks of infections compared to placebo. don't use if you are allergic to ilumya or any of its ingredients. before starting treatment, your doctor should check for tuberculosis and infections. after checking there is no need for routine lab monitoring unless your doctor advises it. ilumya may increase your risk of infections
1:31 pm
and lower your ability to fight them. tell your doctor if you have an infection or have symptoms, or if you plan to or have recently received a vaccine. this could be your chance to leave your psoriasis symptoms behind. ask your doctor for ilumya today, for a clearer tomorrow. so, you're open all day, that's what 24/7 means, sugar. kind of like how you get 24/7 access to licensed agents with geico. hmm? yeah, you just go online, or give them a call anytime. you don't say. yep. now what will it take to get 24/7 access to that lemon meringue pie? pie! pie's coming! that's what it takes, baby. geico®. great service from licensed agents, 24/7. >> neil: beto o'rourke in new hampshire. i can't help but look at the hand gestures. that criticism will stay. he's proposing things that are jostling the system as we know it. what is the fallout for you?
1:32 pm
after this. or where to turn for more information. looking back i wish we'd asked for help sooner. that's why i recommend a place for mom. it's a free service that pairs you with a local senior living advisor who understands memory care and can help you find the right place for your mom or dad. our advisors have helped thousands of families and can help answer key questions like: we all want what's best for our parents, so get advice from someone who's done it before. call today and talk to an advisor who knows memory care. you'll be glad you did.
1:33 pm
>> neil: all right. we had chris scalia said that expanding the supreme court will go nowhere. but 2020 democrats have that idea and others like lowering the voting age to 16. i can't get my 16-year-old to take out the garbage. that is one of the ideas out there. peter doocy has been following this. high, peter. >> some democratic candidates are expressing concern that 2020 could be a repeat of 2016 where their nominee wins the popular vote but loses the electoral college. so there's talk about getting rid of the electoral college. >> every vote matters. the way we can make that happ happen -- [applause] -- is that we can have national voting, and that means get rid of the electoral college.
1:34 pm
>> other democratic candidates like pete buttigieg are trying to getting a way to water down the influence of kavanaugh and gorsuch and anybody else that trump nominates. >> i'm open to the idea of a younger voting age. i want the listen to people, learn more about it. it's a new idea to me. i have to tell you, there's some merit in it given the number of young people leading the conversation right now. >> these changes would require constitutional amendments that 2/3s of the house and senate and 3/4s of the states that support them. it's a high bar that seems out of reap for now. >> shepard: thank you very much. >> neil: so republicans say about democrats, they don't like the rules, they want to change the rules.
1:35 pm
let's get to it with janine, daniel and bill. you don't get your way, force your way. what do you through? >> i don't like it. norms of traditions are important in a democracy. i think as we relate to court packing, we saw it with scalia jr. talked about, getting rid of the filibusters and the blue ships. once you start unwinding things when you're not getting your way, be careful. time will come when the shoe is on the other foot and you're suffering because the other team is wanting to pack the courts or -- >> neil: so bill, how much traction do you think this is getting? not in a substantive way but political traction. a lot of the leading candidates like these ideas. >> yeah, it's completely silly on the 16-year-olds. my youngest just turned 16.
1:36 pm
>> neil: will he take out the garbage? >> i'll put it this way, her mother doesn't trust her to pick her clothes. it's interesting that democrats seem to recognize the least informed segment of the american community, 16-year-olds as natural democratic voters that strikes me. most of these are just -- >> neil: there's the demographics, push for young voters. >> it's silly. like the electoral college. it takes a constitutional amendment or for enough states to count for 270 votes to change the rule. well, the ones that have done it so far are predominantly blue states. the red states just aren't going to do it. so i think they're wasting valuable time. >> neil: so there's a strategy to make you question who the republican winner is because the republicans have been -- benefitted the last two votes. but he thinks they wouldn't be
1:37 pm
that way if it were the reverse for them. >> how long have we had these rules in place, first of all? just goes to show how much democrats want to control the white house, the senate, the supreme court by changing the rules. moving the goal post. there's nothing to see here. it's not going to play out. what they need to do is look at their big government policy, their extreme policies and ideas. abortion any time. the green new deal, higher taxes, the policies they're pushing is what america -- the main street voters are not in support of. >> neil: that's called socialism in a lot of circles. >> not necessarily. but -- >> neil: what is interesting, we got into this on a weekend show one time that take the world socialism out and help the kids pay for college or medicare for all, then you get different numbers. that is what they seam to be focusing on. >> i'll will say that the
1:38 pm
republicans use of the world socialism against democrats is a powerful tool. so it's not socialism if you're talking about 600,000 people not going bankrupt every year. >> neil: that the government is helping to avoid that, right? >> public education, for example, is one of the things that made america great. public libraries, if we didn't have those things now and someone suggested them -- >> let me get back to something that you said about the democrats seeing the republicans that benefitted from the electoral college recently meaning george w. bush and donald trump losing the popular vote. the senate itself is far less democratic than the electoral college. the electoral college is based on a combination of the house, which is very democratic and the senate. i was just crunching the numbers before and proportionate to the house delegations. if you did that, it's not clear that delaware or vermont would
1:39 pm
have a senator. a place like california would have 12. so you know -- >> neil: it would be very different. i think that does a disservice -- >> that would be the same in the senate. just imagine every popular vote and we had a senate constituted in the same way as the house, think of the difference in legislation, the difference in who would get confirmed. so why a lot of these people, especially elizabeth warren, why not for their own institute? i don't think vermont would have a senator. >> neil: again, if we had a popular vote system only, people would campaign differently. i don't know if it's a good or bad things but republicans would go to texas maybe and rural areas and run up the vote. democrats would go to california and new york. these states, run up the vote. states would get left out. >> they would get left out. how many years have we been doing this? it comes down to democrats just
1:40 pm
want to control and change the game because their policies are not what americans are really in support of. >> neil: as you pointed out, be careful what you wish for. could boomerang on you. >> yeah. federal courts filibusters, gorsuch because of the filibuster, goes on and on. >> tit for tat. thank you. i want to take what is going on in england. theresa may is addressing folks saying she does want an extension passed the march 29 deadline. that was the time that britain would formally separate from the european union. that march 29 deadline has been iffy. she's saying right now can we put it back a little bit? i thought that was a very good accent. everybody is shaking their head. more on that and the implications if they push it back, how far is the question, after this. ♪

>> neil: all right. all indications are joe is ready to make it official as in joe biden that he's ready to pull the trigger and make the run for the democratic nomination. he's apparently concerned about raising money and fast to beat the $6 million plus haul that beto o'rourke had. so he's tapping a lot of big money and women here in the party to see if he can do that. no way to confirm that. charlie gasparino has been following that. >> yeah, this is a process that joe biden has been going for two years, trying to figure out whether he wants to run. i'd say the last year for so, since january, he's been 95% there. i think you can say based on my sources that are close to him. he's now 99.9% there. they just hesitate to say he's definitely going in there because you never know when you wake up on the wrong side of the bed, you may say hey, i've had enough. i won't win. but they're saying he's all but
1:45 pm
in. one of the indications is, again, the reporting that we've been doing is with the yeah street crowd that follows him. he has about four or five people on wall street, very rich guys, billionaires, who are ready to raise money for him. one guy is named jim chanos, a major money manager. he's known as a short stellar. he was the guy that uncovered the enron fraud. a significant player on wall street. another guy, tom knight. the number 2 guy at morgan stanley, the head of the government relations. prominent on wall street. bob wolf, a contributor to our shows in that mix. and there's others that i'm probably not mentioning. he's been speaking with these people. they tell me he's going to have the money to run. whether wall street money works now in a democratic party is really part hoff the call louis as well. i mean, can he get away with getting so much money from wall street when he's running up against the likes of elizabeth warren, all of these class
1:46 pm
warfare types that hate the wall street crowd even if a lots of the wall street crowd are left of center moderates. so you know, if joe biden does it and looks like he will do it, it's a different campaign. he will stick out like a sore thumb. it will be a bunch of raving liberals and a couple of socialists and uncle joe, the center left guy that is not afraid to be friends with republicans and wall street guys sticking out. he's hoping sticking out like that will get him sticking out of the crowd, maybe get 20% of the voted by the lefties split of the rest. that is his calculus. >> neil: let's say he does raise a record amount but it's not in small denominations that beto o'rourke got or kamala harris got. would his colleagues say, oh, you'redd trapped to the wall
1:47 pm
street guys. it's not just the money, it's where you're getting it. >> yeah, in the old days, it wasn't so bad being associated with wall street. bill clinton was associated with them and hillary. it was good to be associated with moderate centrist to mildly liberal wall street guys that, you know, made money but want to make the world a better place. it's just so -- the democratic party now is so turned upside-down that even if you're a liberal moderate guy that works on wall street or woman who wants to make the world a better place, doesn't mind paying more texases but not anti-capitalist, that's a black mark against you. he knows the party is changing and knows it's going off the deep end on the left. but he's calculus is this. maybe he can get through the primaries. because he has enough of a vote
1:48 pm
of a voting block. you know -- >> neil: that would put him in good position. >> if he can get to the general, he's formidable with people in the general election. >> neil: thank you. charlie gasparino is the best. meantime, the president was saying today via a drawing, a map that he was showing isis all but gone. it will be finished by today. kirk lippold on whether he is right after this. und and she's watching too, saying [indistinct conversation] [friend] i've never seen that before. ♪ ♪ i have... ♪

1:51 pm
>> this is all isis. now in the bottom, that's as of today. this isis. there's none. the caliphate is gone as of tonight. [applause]
1:52 pm
>> neil: all right. the president again declaring victory over isis while speaking at the tank factory in ohio. but where does isis really stand? are they really on the run or gone. ki kirk, can he right? >> they control one small dot. are they really gone? no. he can't kill an ideology. it will take time. under this president, we have destructed their capability to gone and control territory from which they can train and teach optatives how to go out there and conduct terror attacks. will the attacks continue? probably. will they continue to the extend and with the lethality before? no. >> neil: one of the many things i've learned over the many years, having the honor speaking with you and your service to this great country, terror groups can morph. they morph to something. we remember the taliban that
1:53 pm
morphed into another group and they combine and then you have isis and on and on, al-quaida. back and forth. so they could become a new entity. the president saying isis as we know it is on the run. is he accurate saying that? >> i would say he is. you have to remember with terror groups, they tend to be proactive in what they do. they can look for ability to adapt, look for the ability to try new techniques and tactics against their opponents and against countries they're going after. other countries tend to be reactive in nature which means they're having to play a little bit behind and the key is going to be able to get ahead of that. understand where they're going, what they're doing. that is driven by the intelligence world. so hopefully get inside of that loop and how they actually conduct those operations to head them off and to hopefully kill those doing the planning. >> neil: commander, if i could switch to nato and more importantly to germany saying that it will not be able to make good on that 2% commitment to
1:54 pm
defense spending for a variety of reasons. i'm sure that will tick off a lot of people at the white house. already our ambassador to germany said it's a very disappointing move. what did you make of that? furthermore, the indications out of angela merkel is she has no intention to. >> when you look at the nato alliance and especially with germany, that will be more and more of a problematic relationship in the future. when you look at what germany is doing in building relationships with russia, when they're building the pipeline that will get europe more addicted to russian natural gas, all kinds of complications. when you look at what germany did in the post 9-11 days while they supported us, it wasn't with troops. so the bottom line is, germany is going to continue to remain a problem and if nato wants to stay relevant, they're going to have to look at what does nato exist for. if it's going to be the bulwark against russian expansion, they have to get on board and find
1:55 pm
ways to realize that russia is not their friend. they need to head them off after the pass. don't feed the beast that will be coming after you, which is what germany is doing today. angela merkel has a lot on her hands. not just in aggravating the united states, but more with the alliance in total. all of these other countries look to germany to be a leader on the continent and right now they're not. >> neil: commander, what do you think of the president's ongoing attacks against senator john mccain? >> disappointing to say the least. the man is a war hero. he's an american that dedicated a life of service to the nation. no, it wasn't perfect. yes, john mccain was a political animal. but made decisions that suited the politics of the moment best in some cases. at the end of the day, he chose a life of consequence and service to this nation. he's passed, he's dead. president trump needs to let this go, let the man lie with honor and move on. it's time to be forward-looking,
1:56 pm
not backward thinking and how the president is tweeting him. >> neil: commander, thank you very much. as much for your service and comments. always good having you. >> thank you. >> wonderful to be on. >> neil: as the commander was speaking, we're learning the u.s. senate committee, the commerce committee, wants to meet with boeing and other manufacturers to testify at a future hearing, to get to the bottom of the 737 max problem. we'll have more after this. oh! oh! oh! ♪ ozempic®! ♪ (announcer) people with type 2 diabetes are excited about the potential of once-weekly ozempic®. in a study with ozempic®, a majority of adults lowered their blood sugar and reached an a1c of less than seven and maintained it. oh! under seven? and you may lose weight. in the same one-year study,
