tv Your World With Neil Cavuto FOX News January 13, 2020 1:00pm-2:00pm PST
>> that play right there set things up. they held on. >> trace: and we have to go over the next one. i like lsu tonight. i am trace gallagher. here in neil. >> neil: it is the battle of the billionaires. michael bloomberg saying he's prepared to drop a billion dollars if that is what it takes to defeat that other billionaire, president trump. even if mr. bloomberg is not the democratic nominee. the president ripping bloomberg in a tweet. the president himself might be speaking on the microphone. he will be departing the white house. we will be watching to talk to reporters before hopping on marine one. welcome everybody. i'm a neil cavuto. president obama's former assistant make up all of this
back and forth next. you might make the assumption working so long with barack obama that he's naturally enamored with joe biden. think again. and i want to break it all down. >> neil, the inspiration for his campaign, the most expensive u.s. senate rate, grace and history. -- >> a democrat can win texas. but only if you invest time and resources. that is what we're doing. we're going to going to finally turn texas blue. and we are not going to leave anyone behind. >> the bloomberg strategy ends early. he is already sent more than
$200 million on this campaign. it is very heavy on tv advertising. a loss to traditional campaign bus to her. "the new york times," he withdrew a billion dollars from his bank account to beat trump even if he is not a nominee. calling for wealth tax that is one of big dollar fund-raisers. she cashed those checks. >> i hope he is engaged. i hope you will work on the issues. i'm not going to sell access to my time or change anything i do. >> president trump has caught some campaign commercials. he tweeted this "many mike bloomberg is spending a lot of money on false advertising. health care, you have it now while at the same time winning the fight to rid you of the expensive unfair, and very unpopular individual.
tomorrow night, bloomberg who has not been trying to get on the stage thinks he can win without a debate." >> neil: thank you very, very much. he was an aide. he was called the chief of sta staff. he was this close as you get to the obama white house. it is not joe biden. he joins us right now, former obama personal aide, reggie love. >> thank you for having me tod today. >> neil: it is interesting because of your affinity with president obama throughout his presidency. he wrote of great book. you go through that. it surprised me to hear as much as you regard vice president joe biden highly, you prefer w who? >> i think that i spent a lot of
years with president obama and with the vice president joe biden. i think they've been great leaders and had tremendous service to the country. i think pete buttigieg is a great opportunity to do something unique. bring about change for the country. i think it's got a great message about unity. when you look at the difference of 2016 and 2008, it is really about getting people excited to vote. the only way to get people excited to vote is to bring them into the fold and give them new ideas that meet them where they live. things around national service, the douglas plan. all of these things that will talk about the things you want to do for community and people and not the fearmongering of let's just get the guy currently off of the -- it's got to be a plan to do something unique and special and to bring people together to the arsenal. >> neil: went out the vice president?
why not bernie sanders who leads right now in iowa and new hampshire? i know that can be fleeting. is the same same pole that dismissed barack obama. mayor pete, a lot of people were surprised of the choice of value and particularly surprised given the fact that he has had such a tough route with african-americans. so far, what you think? >> i think there are a couple of points there. in terms of the polls today, if you look at the polls that just came out, 45% of caucuses in iowa are still undecided. i would argue that given pete's relative notes on stage, it is pretty impressive that when people get to actually hear pete's message, they like him. when people are undecided, and haven't had a chance to meet him or talk to him or learn about him, i kind of dismiss that a
little bit. in terms of -- you know -- the polls didn't really favor obama at the beginning. people knew hillary clinton very, very well. i would argue in the african-american community, many have not gotten a chance to meet or hear from pete. i think as people here from the african-american community, hear his message, they will find one that resonates with them. >> neil: did you bounce this off of president obama? i've been leaning toward this guy? >> i think i may have sent just a heads up, but no, i did not have to get my permission -- >> neil: i realize. i'm curious a number of the former administrations insiders are leading toward mayor buttigieg and others. not the vice president.
i'm wondering what that means. >> when barack obama won iowa, before that, not many people knew who he was. a lot of people said very similar things about him. he's a nice guy. he's very articulate. i like his policies. maybe he's a little too young, a little too brown, i may be not born here in this country. there are things people said about him that he would not be fit to be president. i think that he has dismissed all of those things. he is a pretty impressive president. a lot of people could never get universal health care. >> neil: you do think that mayor pete would be able to do a lot of the stuff -- the reason why mention it is because right now with bernie sanders leading, some of the other democrats have been telling me, they will go down to the -- people will say he has been mr. big government and what are you saying? >> i think a very important
statistic we should take into consideration. the different between 2008 and 2016. in 2016, we had roughly 250 million people in the voting age population. we grew roughly 15 million more eligible voters between 2016 and 2008. in 2016, we only had 4 million more voters in 2008 and we did in 2016. to your point about bernie, people have to be expired. they have to want to do something and be a part of something for them to want to go out and vote. that is what i think bloomberg will actually be pretty impactful. i think is going to continue to remind people how important it is to be out on election day. in november to make sure your voices heard. 2016, i think some people felt a little marginalized.
i think voters didn't turn out the way they did in 2008 and 2012. i think pete has the ability to inspire people and come be a part of something different. >> you are part of something different when we elected our first african-american president. will this country elect a individual to be president of the united states? >> i would imagine that america is a place where we think everything is about how hard you work, what product you produce. those things matter more to americans, what you can do for them than what your sexual orientation is. i think that about 38-year-old who was a mayor of a town of 100,000 people who is a same-sex oriented can go out and win. iowa on the 3rd of february, i think it says that maybe there is something we can be helpful for. i think that is how people felt about obama in 2008. >> neil: do you feel that it is obviously democrats say we
have to defeat donald trump ear to the economy has been very, very good. the president claims it's much stronger than when your friend in the former president was in power. when you get that kind of stuff and you're still close friends with barack obama, how does he feel -- how do you feel about that? the president will always say, the numbers bear me out. take a look at the markets. take a look if the economy. what he think? >> i think that you can talk a lot of stuff. you can look at history. you can look at bush and clinton. how bush's tax cuts in the '90s led to a balanced budget for bill clinton. you could say that. you know, the things that barack obama did in 2009 and 2010 around the american recovery investment act around dr. frank. all of these things to help
solidify the financial services industry. i think you could say that a lot of those things have helped and created a bit of a tailwind to allow the economy to continue t. i would say that as a whole, i think that when you look postrecession 2008, 2009, you know, a lot of countries still haven't really recovered. you look at europe and southeast asia. >> neil: you're right about that. i was curious. you think that the former president will wait until after the democratic convention to throw his support behind whoever the democratic nominee is and is comfortable with that. are you comfortable with that? >> i don't think he is going do anything before the convention. look, i think whoever ends up being the nominee -- i am in the same boat as well.
democrats are going to get behind the support, whether it is mayor ph, with urges bloomberg or warren, democrats right now are hungry to try to bring a new look and new leadership into the white house. >> neil: does that mean, edgy -- i apologize for jumping in. does that mean the party would elect someone that the likable, the fear with elizabeth warner bernie sanders -- do you share that that they would support whoever that amount of meat ultimately is? >> it would not be my preference to be on -- to support at their credit nominee that's not going to be able to move center, who isn't going to be able to convince middle-of-the-road republicans and people who have been outside the voting process and a little -- i would be concerned about not having someone a little bit more
moderate railing at the top of the ticket. but that being said, i still would probably be very supportive of them. my preference would be to have someone like mayor pete at the top of the ticket. >> neil: we will watch very closely. a lot of things on barack obama. the guy who got things done. >> i'm glad you didn't say richie. >> neil: i didn't do that. i was going to repeat some stories from your book. this is a family show. keep that in mind. >> thank you for having me on today. >> neil: the house is preparing to send articles of impeachment over to the senate. more republican senators seem open to the idea for witnesses. if you have moderate to severe psoriasis,
little things 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. otezla. show more of you.
republicans who are open to witnesses, but only after both sides have made their respective cases. one being a republican senator who joins me right now. senator, thank you for taking the time. do we know when those articles of impeachment will make it to your side of the capital? >> nancy pelosi said soon. we are assuming that that will happen this week. she's got a meeting with our caucus tomorrow. atul stopped stop the preliminary process which could result in starting to hear the arguments of the impeachment managers and the lawyers on tuesday after martin luther king holiday on monday. >> neil: that is pretty soon. you are at least open to witnesses. it wasn't an ironclad type of thing for you? several of your colleagues are as well. it would appear that if they all committed to that, i'm including that romney and susan collins and senator.
if all of a sudden, they were to say, we are open to that, that would compel witness testimony john bolton comes to mind. the president has indicated that he might have to cite executive privilege to prevent bolton from testifying. they are open to that. then what happens? >> this would be the third time in american history, the entire life of our country where we've had this process. we're looking for precedents or what has happened before. the most logical one would be at the way of the clinton impeachment trial was conducted, which allowed both sides to make their presentations and allowed senators to ask questions which were reported to by the impeachment managers are presence lawyers. then and only then there would be a decision made for the additional witnesses we want to hear from. in the clip in case they three.
their testimony was taken outside of the senate chamber and experts presented for the trial. i think that is the fairest way to do it's based on the way the clinton impeachment trial proceeded. what is good for president clinton ought to be good enough for president trump. as the way that i see this going forward. >> neil: it would not be part of public testimony behind closed doors and it would be up to you and/or your colleagues to quote from that deposition. >> right. i view this -- we are like a jury, not exactly analogous, because obviously were not disinterested as a jury typically is. it would be up to the impeachment managers of the house prosecutors or the president's lawyers to present that evidence for us to consider sars deliberations. here's the thing i'm wondering about. i'm not sure to what extent the facts, the underlying facts in
support of the articles of impeachment are in dispute. i'm not sure yet. that's one reason to leave it open for later determination. whether additional witnesses will actually share any additional insights or any other perspective or whether it would be repetitious. >> neil: you get a sense to this point where mines won't be changed? here is still against, nothing will change in this process. >> i think given the fact that speaker nancy pelosi said in march of 2019 that impeachment was -- and it wasn't worth it unless there was bipartisan support. and it was compelling. but then of course, she decided to veer off on a partisan rushed impeachment process. i think we know more or less what the outcome is going to be unless there are additional facts that we don't know that are introduced here.
and i think 67 votes is a higher threshold. no president has ever been convicted and removed before. i think it is unlikely to happen here. >> neil: go quickly, michael bloomberg is convinced he can make texas blue. what you think? >> i think that is the dream of a lot of democrats. we have seen huge voting turnouts. we are expecting more of 11 million votes in 2020. the last time i was on the ballot in 2,014, we had 4.7 million voters. huge surge in turnout and a lot of people who have moved there because of the jobs that opportunity that our great economy is providing. we are going to have to talk all of those folks and talk to them about the things we care about and earn their vote. i think first mr. bloomberg has got up luminary problem. he's going to become the democratic nominee first. it is unlikely to happen. we will see. >> neil: you never know. strange country.
this one's for you. the heroes who won't let your disease hold you back. you inspired us to make your humira experience even better with humira citrate-free. it has the same effectiveness you know and trust, but we removed the citrate buffers, there's less liquid, and a thinner needle, with less pain immediately following injection. if you haven't yet, talk to your doctor about humira citrate-free. and you can use your co-pay card to pay as little as $5 a month. humira can lower your ability to fight infections. serious and sometimes fatal infections, including tuberculosis, and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened, as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores.
>> neil: iran is not denying reports relation into -- how is this playing out? let's get the read for the former deputy area of assistant. amber, they're not backing down. the protesters are not backing down. if anything, they are growing in number. this is a little different than prior insurgencies. >> it is absolutely different. what we saw from the protesters
who were avoiding stepping on not only the american flag but the flag of israel as well as nothing short of absolutely incredible. as well as the protests that are popping up all over the country. i think that it really shows, it is a crime punishable by death to speak out. i think it really shows where the heart of the iranian people are once you remove the curtains that the iranian regime has held over the people for so many decades. >> neil: what does the regime do now? also in the middle of this is a country that is spiraling and out-of-control. growth in their 10%. that is a borderline depression. >> it is. that is one of the reasons the protesters are speaking out in the way that they are. their economy has absolutely almost flatlined. what we will see from regime's attempts to sort of prevent forms of communication.
they don't want the protesters being emboldened. they don't want them to feel support from the west. that's exactly what they are kidding right now from the president. we've seen an uptick in tweets from the president. he has been treating support for the protesters and speaking out negatively against the regime. that messaging from the administration is working. i think that we are going to see -- is not going to be any intervention or direct covert action towards iran. the american people have zero appetite for any additional conflict in the middle east. they are looking to remove american military forces for the middle east. i think more than anything, it is going to be a strategic communication push. >> neil: you know it is different. you know this far better than i. the usual making united states the great satan and the bogeyman, that worked in 1979
when he was able to take people's attention away from spiraling out of control of the iranian economy to to the great american satan. that was working for a little while in iran. and then the shooting down of this airliner and everything else combining -- it's not working now, is it? >> it is not. the iranian people have seen firsthand what life is like under the iranian regime. and for too long, there has been no jobs, no opportunities. their people are essentially looking for a way out. i think when the regime could no longer live around the airlines that was shut down, i think enough was enough for the iranian people. with the president of the united states supporting them, using his twitter platform that is absolutely unprecedented in the way that he is essentially able to speak to an entire group
of people the way that he is, is changing the way that the people of iran are viewing the regime that has been oppressing them for so long. >> neil: thank you very much. good catching up with you. the president might be, acting on this. he finished his remarks quick we are told before heading marine one. we are following that on following her majesty across the pond weighing in on prince harry and meghan markle. let's say that she got right to the point. more after this... . that's why i like liberty mutual. they get that no two people are alike and customize your car insurance so you only pay for what you need. almost done. what do you think? i don't see it. only pay for what you need. ♪ liberty. liberty. liberty. liberty. ♪

>> neil: what a royal mess. they are gathering at the queens estate for an emergency meeting. i don't know if it was settled, but let's say a couple of the great points. >> the queen said that the meeting was constructive. she gave the couple her support for their new life. but her statement was -- she did use the word "family" eight times in a relatively short statement. this is about family. this also might have been to give a warm and fuzzy or cozy
feel after a week that was very acid in town. the 93-year-old monarch refers to the couple as harry and megan as opposed to the duke and duchess of sussex. many will speculate whether they are allowed to continue as your royal highness is when this is all done and dusted. here's more of her majesty's statement. she went on to say "they are not reliant on public funds in their new lives. it is therefore been agreed that there will be a period of transition in which they will spend time in canada and the u.k. that leaves open the question of who will pay for security. she did not have a royal protection all the time. those are different circumstances. it is still not clear who will protect the couple when they are in toronto or los angeles. and how that would be done. the commercial side, renouncing public funds and wish to make their own money. their ability to do so will
always be connected to their roles as royals and the royal family. it is supposed to be a political and not commercial. there is still not to be worked out. the queen has said she wants this to be sorted out in a matter of days and not weeks. but again, it is very much a work in progress. i think the bottom line is that she really did give her blessing today. she said that she wanted them to stay, but she is prepared to help them with their lives and go to the best of their ability. >> neil: thank you very much. was that her way of saying don't let the screen door hit you on the way out? >> it is not the words of the roses. it is the wars of the poses. neither of the party wants to see dell might be seen as the bad guy. they are trying to cash out. the queen is reasserted control. she has been in the game for longer. she's a heavy weight and basically saying, go on, then.
try your luck. >> neil: are they still royalty? what are they? >> they will always be royalty. they will be in a spiral unless they are able to quickly monetize themselves. judging for that announcement, they are not going to be able to cash out very soon unless they really keep their brand up. they are simply going to spiral down to the c list. >> neil: i wonder if the queen was limiting out so much the royalty part of her job but just being a grandmother and a grandchild is going to be half a world away from her now. >> oh, yeah. she has been through this so many times. she's already had a cut out two of her sons forgetting their fingers caught in the tail. the grandchildren -- her great grandson archie not going to be off in canada somewhere with his parents. as families go, it's a tragedy. >> neil: what about harry and all of this?
certainly he is aware with what his mother went through and the paparazzi. a different time, i know. that must be entering his mind and megan's mind as well. >> i think it is. a lot of people blaming megan. i think they are making a mistake. i think harry very much wants outfit he's made it clear. he loathes the attention. the question is, are they going to be able to control their media image in the way they are talking about doing? they say that they want to limit the press' access. if you're living in ordinary life with a private security detail in a rented mansion in canada, you're not going to be able to stop the people photographing you. >> neil: that's true. we will see if history provides the same paparazzi example. we hope not, but we will watch it closely. a great read on everything else across the pond. the president just wrapping up a couple of the questions within media outside of the house before boarding marine one for the college football
championship. >> mr. president, on the strike. >> president trump: it will be a great game. there will be something that a lot of people want to see. we will be in new orleans. we look forward to it. the stock market is way up. the country is doing really well. we will see you at the game. >> mr. president -- what is the intelligence on that? >> president trump: i think it has been totally consistent. here's what has been consistent. we killed soleimani, the number one terrorist in the world by every account. that person, killed a lot of americans, killed a lot of people. we killed him. when the democrats try to defend him, it is a disgrace to our country. they can't do that. let me tell you, it's not working politically very well for them. we killed the number one terrorist in the world, soleimani. it should have been done 20 years ago. see you at the game.
thank you. >> neil: there president before leaving for the college championship game making it clear he has no doubts or no concern about all of the back-and-forth of the controversy of killing this iranian general soleimani saying that he did the right thing. and indicating again that the american people stand by him. stay with us. what'd we decide on the flyers again? uh, "fifteen minutes could save you 15% or more on car insurance." i think we're gonna swap over to "over seventy-five years of savings and service." what, we're just gonna swap over? yep. pump the breaks on this, swap it over to that. pump the breaks, and, uh, swap over? that's right. instead of all this that i've already-? yeah. what are we gonna do with these? keep it at your desk, and save it for next time. geico. over 75 years of savings and service. my body is truly powerful. i have the power to lower my blood sugar and a1c. because i can still make my own insulin. and trulicity activates my body to release it
like it's supposed to. trulicity is for people with type 2 diabetes. it's not insulin. i take it once a week. it starts acting in my body from the first dose. trulicity isn't for people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. don't take trulicity if you're allergic to it, you or your family have medullary thyroid cancer, or have multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2. stop trulicity and call your doctor right away if you have an allergic reaction, a lump or swelling in your neck, or severe stomach pain. serious side effects may include pancreatitis. taking trulicity with a sulfonylurea or insulin increases low blood sugar risk. side effects include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, belly pain, and decreased appetite, which lead to dehydration and may worsen kidney problems. i have it within me to lower my a1c. ask your doctor about trulicity.

them up. what do you make of this? and what was announced today? >> i think the first question is how? how do we have nearly two dozen saudi arabians training where u.s. citizens cannot walk on with g hot and radical islamic terrorist material on the computers with reports of child pornography on it. 15 of them had access to or shared child pornography. the question is, how did they make it in the program this way? how were they afforded the access they were afforded? how did we not see it before it turned into a deadly incident? >> neil: i wanted to ask you why and how. to learn how to fly some of the equipment, they are going to purchase it. but it seemed like the process will sort of scattered about checking the credentials and blood backgrounds of some of these guys. >> yeah, i think one thing i learned myself.
i train in the early to thousands with people from georgia and romania and california on radio equipment that involves our encryption. it's very classified. i trained in 2008 and '9 in the most classified schools in the world. people from all over the world. keep in mind that not all things at the same. one things that i learned is that some of the saudis that were sent here because of the namic of the royal family were basically aristocracy for the royal kingdom and didn't have the credentials necessary. one of the complaints that were and honestly reported with that many would get multiple opportunities to do the basic tasks necessary to complete the training because they did not have the prerequisites necessary, the vision, the court nation. at that point it becomes dangerous. purchasing and sales of planes is much different than training our allies that we operate with abroad. we need to know how we operate
so that we could operate together. those are two different things. you can see that one is more risky than the other. >> neil: i being overly concerned about the consistency of the saudis. >> no, this turn into a deadly incident. overly concerned when out the door the day someone died that was an honorable service member of our country. at this point, we should be asking our government to look at this with a microscope. we should be asking congress to look at the at the bureaucracy with the microscope. >> neil: may be that they are not the friends we think they are. >> absolutely. declassifying the rest of the 9/11 report and understanding the roles the families played, i think we know enough today to know that the saudis have played both sides of a lot of things. we know that about pakistan. we know that about turkey. we know that about the saudis. at some point we put up with it. it should not be to the point that innocent americans or american service members are

>> neil: bernie sanders saying that he has not attacked elizabeth warren. he thinks very highly of her. there is a rift going on in the party right now with the insurgent sanders heightening that attention with the wants surgery elizabeth warren. congressman, thank you for taking the time. is this a battle going on here? how would you describe it? >> you could tell the caucus is a couple of weeks away. it's a very tight race out there. it is election season. it's a contact sport. >> neil: i'm wondering whether the war and forces are getting frustrated. it seems to me that you follow this closer than i that everyone will take a turn being a leader. maybe it is bernie sanders term. others are saying that it's registering in iowa and new hampshire. what do you think? >> i think that you have seen polls all over the place. two polls that came out that showed vice president biden a nice commanding lead.
it is going to be a competitive race. no one is taking anything for granted. i have endorsed vice president biden and i was out there on his behalf. i think this is going to go down to the wire in iowa. >> neil: if i read the former vice president strategy, congressman, it is to ask you iowa and new hampshire and hope for the past and put everything on south carolina and may be super tuesday. it is a risky strategy. do you think it will be a productive one? >> that's not what i saw on the ground when i was meeting with his organizers. there was a real energy within team biden with the vice president's folks. you also hear that from the warren team and a sanders team and the pete buttigieg team. the top four are going to be competitive. it is a caucus state. every vote is going to account. i think the vice president has some momentum. >> neil: let's talk about the
electability. your argument for the vice president is that he's a likable and hold the best against president trump. bernie sanders is not. although he doesn't do too poorly. is it the fear among song and the democratic party that a hard left candidate -- that is tough to judge these days because they are all a little left of center to put it mildly are all going to lose in a general election? >> there are some concerns that someone who is pretty far left considers themselves a socialist democrat is going to make it tougher. someone with -- who is well-known with the experience of vice president biden could make a difference. what you are seeing is a number of folks that are starting to come out and endorse vice president biden. this morning, we had representative who turned to
trump district. you're starting to see folks say, okay, who is our best candidate? who can help us on the ballot. that does seem to be vice president biden. >> neil: are you worried with the resurrection of all these tapes showing the support for going after saddam hussein and other foreign ventures people like bernie sanders come out and say that is the problem? >> no, i think a lot of folks into thousand two and 2003 given what the bush administration was suggesting that there might be weapons of mass destruction, took president bush at face value. in hindsight, we know that information they presented was false and misleading. i take the folks that were in the senate and in congress at that time when they said really they were trying to give president bush leverage to negotiate. vice president biden has been matter-of-fact. when the data came out and they did not have weapons of mass destruction's, going to war with iran was not the right decision. he has said that in the past.

>> just like at the globes, netflix having a list of oscar contenders, 24 nominations things to the irishman, so is this the future of hollywood? you might posit that netflix related movies won to golden globe awards despite all those nominations. nominations. fox's entertainment producer, what do you think? >> so i do think that things aren't just changing, they have changed. when it comes to streaming services, they are getting more recognition than ever. netflix has more nominations than any major studio. those two movies, the irishman and marriage story are both up for best picture.
there are some holdouts in the industry, some prefer the traditional theatrical releases and the academy rules are that a film does need to be in theaters for seven consecutive days still. will that change? it might as there are more streaming services, more content. so we have to keep an eye on that. or will they win? there's a lot of competition this year from big box office success stories. >> i was noticing even in the case of the joker, that got ten or 11 nominations including best actor, what is going on here, you think? >> i think a few things. the academy of course does want more people watching the show so that could be part of it where you have people who might be tuning in to see the films that they have actually seen of won. also, there is a great quality of films that are in theaters, some that rolled out well in advance of people more familiar with them. the joker goes in with 11 nominations as you said and that
is the lead for any single movie. that film was the first r-rated movie to cross $1 billion worldwide. so a huge success, and some of the others are huge commercial success stories as well. once upon a time in hollywood, you had a ford versus ferrari, little women, parasites, even these indians made very impressive debuts. and you have 1917 number one spot at the box office as it expanded nationwide this week. so there is a lot of big movies, still plenty of in these and of course those on streaming. many to up on them. >> fox news entertainment producer, so many big names, one of those rare reviewers. it will not feature a central host. they are using multiple hosts
and multiple segments, so no ricky gervais is for the oscars but we will see how that goes. the dow up again today about 83 points, but the big test for 29,000 will have to wait. here comes "the five." >> greg: hi, i am greg gutfeld with jesse watters, juan williams, dana perino, and emily compagno. sorry, media. looks like iran hates its own government more than he hates us. instead of burning u.s. flags, what did you see at sunday's protests over its government shooting down that airliner? a bunch of iranians refusing to act the way our media wishes they would come at demonstrators refused to walk on american and israeli flags while they attacked images of general soleimani. as much as they
