8:00 pm
tell us your name come up where you live, and we will play more of your calls tomorrow night. that's all the time we have left this evening. see you tomorrow night. ♪ >> bill: "the o'reilly factor" is on. tonight... >> general flynn does enjoy the full confidence of the president. >> bill: not anymore. the national security chief has resigned. but why?e we have the inside story. h >> some of his policies are fine, i don't think those are his ideas. the execution on the ban is horrible. >> bill: billionaire mark cuban emerging as one of president trump's biggest critics. so what is the beef? mr. cuban will be here. >> if you don't want any trouble, keep your filthy white hands off our beautiful -- f >> bill: also, ahead, yale university may honor the black panther movement, which has been violent. we will have a special report on that.
8:01 pm
caution, you are about to enter the "no spin zone." "the factor" begins. ♪ >> bill: hi, i am bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. the first casualty of the trump administration, that is the subject of this evening's "talking points" memo. national security chiefig michael flynn has resigned. the general got into trouble over a phone call he had with the russian ambassador before, before donald trump took office. the issue is centered on sanctions president obama slapped on russia. apparently, general flynn discussed that with the russians. michael flynn should have known that his call was being taped,d, both by american and russian intelligence agencies. that is standard. but then things get foggy. i don't know what general flynne said, nobody knows at this point, except government officials because there is a transcript of the conversation, as yet unreleased. but according to fox news correspondent john roberts,
8:02 pm
general flynn misled vice president pence about the content of the call. and that is the big reason he was fired. vice president pence wields a lot of power in the white house right now, and subordinates simply cannot mislead him. so the trump administration is now searching for a new national security the story really ends here. unless general flynn was ordered to say something to the russians that was inappropriate. again, speculating on that, foolish. if evidence surfaces, we will certainly report it. perhaps the most intriguing aspect on the flynn saga is the p.r. component. yesterday, kellyanne conway said to the general was safe. >> general flynn does enjoy the full confidence of the g president, and it is a big week for general flynn. he is a point of contact fort many of the foreign visits. >> bill: now, did ms. conway mislead or did she not know the general was in trouble? either way, not ami good
8:03 pm
situation. "talking points" understands the complexities of running this country. but it's becoming clear that president trump needs better coordination among his staff. there should be somebody in charge of quality control and accurate messaging, that someone should be chief of staff reince priebus, who has experience and skill. no way kellyanne conway should be out saying all is fine with general flynn when all was not fine. that kind of confusion doesn'tly do anyone in this country any good, especially because president trump has legions of people trying to hurt him. summing up, flynn is out, a new security person will be appointed, and the trump white house needs to become better organized. and that is the memo. now for the top story, how is president trump doing according to the folks? new fox news poll just outoi spotlights that. do you approve of trump's executive order on immigration? 46% say yes. 52%, no. should the order, the
8:04 pm
immigration order, be described as a terrorist hot spot restriction or a muslim ban? 56%, restriction. 37%, ban. does the order make the usa safer? less safe? no difference? safer, 42%. less safe, 33%. no difference, 24%. next, the job approval rating. approve, 48%, disapprove, 47%. finally, are you confident and donald trump's judgment and a37 crisis?le 50% are confident., 49% are not. in october, that number was 43% confident, 56%, no. so there has been a gain for the president there. but it is clear theth country remains divided on president trump. joining us from dallas, one of his critics, mark cuban, billionaire and tv star. let's talk some policy. mr. cuban, what is your biggest concern about president trump in that area? >> i think his management style. i think you hit the nail on the
8:05 pm
head. i don't think he has been able to show any leadership. i don't think he has taken responsibility for the white house, and i don't think he has shown them any direction. and i think the result of that are the issues that you have mentioned. there is a divergence in communications.t the people that work for him seem to be fearful of having the mistakes pinned on them, and that has led to leaks. just inconsistency coming out oh the white house. >> bill: that is not really policy. >> no, that's right. >> bill: i have to say, that iim have never seen, in my lifetime, a new president do as many things as donald trump has done in 26 days. now, you may not like those things, and that is why we invited you on. what is the policy beef? >> we can start with policy. let's talk about jobs. all right? he is meeting with all of these companies, but he hasn't really se gotten to the point where he understands that the nature of work is changing. technology is changing, how jobs, how people are hired, the
8:06 pm
jobs are going to do. he is shuffling deck chairs on the titanic by going and talking to these companies and dealing with 5 and 10 and even 25,000 jobs at a time. look, there is nothing wrong with trying to get more jobs. that is a good thing.he but in any given month, ourhi economy gains and loses 5 million plus jobs. we got to start dealing with the macro issues. >> bill: would you cede that his goal of keeping manufacturing and plants here in the united states is a good one? would you cede that? >> not really. >> bill: you think it is good for the country to have plants built overseas? do you think that is good? >> no, that is not what i'm saying at all. >> bill: that is what his goal is, have them built here. >> i get that he wants plants built here. but you are not going to see new buildings, you're not going to see new facilities..
8:07 pm
what you're going to see our f changes to existing facilities. >> bill: already, some companies say they will build in factories here because they don't want to pay a tariff of bringing their goods back into the usa. >> now we're into semantics, bill. a new factory, does that mean re-modifying a facility? >> bill: would it be fair, then, to give the president a year to see if the job -- we are talking good jobs, not talking service, marginal jobs, the median income goes up, that was president obama, he couldn't raise the median -- would it be fair to give president trump a year to see if his aggressive approach results in good jobs appearing in america? would that be fair? r >> sure. i have no problem with giving him time. >> bill: all right, good. >> but you have to look at thehe bigger picture. he hasn't demonstrated that he understands the bigger picture. what i will tell you with 100% certainty, every single one of those companies that he isry talking to, whether it is ford, united technologies, whoever it may be, their total number of employees will be fewer in three
8:08 pm
years than it is today, no matter what he does.s. in terms of individual factories. >> bill: we all understand that changing technology and that people have to become educated in it. >> no, that is not what i'm saying. no, that is not what i am saying. >> bill: in order to do the new jobs, you need to have a new set of skills required. o >> no, that is not correct at all. >> bill: yes, you will. >> what i am saying is, with artificial intelligence, neural networks, we are going to see more technological change over the next three years than we, have seen over the last -- >> bill: but in order for people to harness that change, they are going to have to know the new technology inside and out. >> no, no. i am just telling you, that is not the way it works. people are going to be replaced by these technologies. what we have to do during that disruptive period, we have to find places for them to go. we have to find new places to put them to >> bill: there is always going to be marketing, there is always
8:09 pm
going to be things like that that they t have to do. unless you want to set up a socialistic thing, where everybody is guaranteed a job, which is never going to happen here. let's get to health care for a minute because i know that is a big issue for you. is it fair to give the trump administration and the republican party six or seven months to come up with a plan? a is that fair? >> yeah, of course. but here is the real question, bill.. if you are going to adjust, replace, whatever you want with obamacare, you have got to answer a simple question.te out of health care providers, insurance, insurers, andue consumers, who is going to take less? that is what we don't know. >> bill: well, he is trying to drive down the cost by having more competition among the insurance companies and then browbeating the pharm companies, the drug companies to lower their prices. he is trying to do that. but it is a complicated issue. >> what you're saying is, all these insurance companies are now willing to have lower profits -- >> bill: no, because their profits will be going on a wider canvas in which to sell.
8:10 pm
so the volume goes up while the price goes down. >> where are they going to be selling that they didn't sell before? >> bill: they are ordered to sell in certain states. he wants to open it up to the whole country. >> it is not like the companies couldn't start, couldn't initiate -- >> bill: it is a very regimented health care system that we have. mr. cuban, i would love to have you back. you are a smart guy, and we want to hear from you from timeba to time. thanks for coming on. >> it's always fun, bill. and you. >> bill: next on the rundown, yale university may honor the black panther party.l can you believe it? we will tell you what is going on in new haven.d later, will accused deserter bowe bergdahl, will heat get off because of comments made by donald trump? we have the latest on that as "the factor" continues all across the usa and all around the world. americans - 83% try to eat healthy. yet up 90% fall short in getting key nutrients from food alone. let's do more. add one a day women's

8:14 pm
>> bill: "impact segment" segment. as you know, yale university is an ivy league stalwart, very prestigious institution. now, two controversies that may harm yale. first, the university is taking john calhoun's name off of one of the residential colleges. he served for many years before the civil war. he was an ardent proponent of slavery.y. however, john f. kennedy named calhoun one of the greatest senators in history. i disagree with that assessment. also, the "yale daily news," the student paper, is backing away from the story it printed that says the african-american cultural center at yale will honor the black panther party as part of black history month. joining us now from new haven, connecticut, gabby cudjoe-wilkes, a yale graduate student, and here in the studio, kyle tierney, a senior at yale. so john calhoun, he was associated with yale way back, gave them a lot of money, had a college named after him, right? but no more. >> no, sir. >> bill: what happened? >> it started about two yearse. ago.
8:15 pm
the calhoun renaming process really picked up steam. then they decided last april to not rename calhoun. they had a whole committee established over the summer. >> bill: who is they? >> the administration, the yale corporation. and the president. >> bill: this was basically faculty members that did this? >> not so much faculty members.> faculty and students wanted to the name changed -- >> bill: because of the slavery issue, right? >> yes, sir. >> bill: all right, so that is gone. gabby, i assume you support the banishment of john c. calhoun, correct? >> i support the renaming of the college. we are still going to be remembering his legacy. we are not erasing him. i do support the renaming of the college. >> bill: you know there is a lot of thomas jefferson, george washington, they were slaveholders. a lot of things named after them. what is the difference? >> he is not just a as ft slaveholder. he's not just someone who was a racist. he really built his legacy around inequality. he is really an individual whose
8:16 pm
lifelong work was around inequality. he wasn't even really for the parts that say that all men are created equal. so when you think about residential colleges, this is where the students are formed, a place of community. when you think about those names that we want on those institutions with -- those residential colleges within our institutions, it is important to think about that. >> bill: you are distinguishing between the legacy of calhoun and jefferson at washington. why do you think yale even named the college after calhoun? surely, they knew, because hesu was not a quiet guy, it was all pretty much up front with him. surely they knew who he was, why did they name it? >> i'm sure they did know. you know, it is 2017. i know the conversation that weo are in now, which is, we can look at our legacy, we can look at the history, and makeke decisions based on who we are now as yale university. and that is what the administration has done. >> bill: so you don't have any thought about why they would put up calhoun as a guy worthy of having a college named after him? you don't know? >> i have a lot of questions about the decisions that have
8:17 pm
been made before 2017. >> bill: let's turn to the black panthers. the yale paper booted it, right? there is no honoring going on in new haven about the black panthers. what is there? >> i think it is students who want to be a part of a movement, and they want to compare them getting calhoun renamed, being part of these random protests against things that they represent. think that theyep represent. >> bill: where do the black panthers come in? it is black history month. >> it looked like a few students went in the fall to go visit a thing at cal berkeley that was presenting a story about the black panthers. >> bill: they were going to go back to yale about what their experiences were? >> i was a part of that. >> bill: you went out there. >> i went out there. we were in oakland, it wasn't affiliated with berkeley. it was a conference celebrating 50 years of the black panthers forming.
8:18 pm
and we went out there as students to really learn the history, to chronicle it, to understand what is going on. you are probably familiar with the may day event that took place back in the '70s at yale. and yale has a long history of activism. so we went as students archivists to go out -- >> bill: did you come out with a favorable impression of the black panther movement? >> oh, absolutely. they were so resilient >> bill: let me have you react to a sound bite that we have from stokely carmichael, who was associated with the panthers. >> okay. >> we have to recognize who our major enemy is! the major enemy is not your brother, flesh of your flesh and blood of your blood. the major enemy is his
8:19 pm
the honky and his institutions of racism! that is the major enemy! >> bill: the white man, based on a pig reference. you must know that alex rackley, a black panther, in new haven. he was murdered there allegedly by other black panthers. that was back in 1969. there is a long legacy of o violence associated with even the new black panthers today. how can you look favorably upon that group? >> well, there is a long historf of racism in this country. so i think we can all agree that racism exists in this country. >> bill: do you think that black panthers are part of the racism with their antiwhite event? >> the black panthers, it wasn't about antiwhite, it is pro-black. it is about the making sure they provided for the community, foor programs, health care programs. the language and the rhetoric is your choice. we are not using that language and rhetoric now. they certainly were not using that rhetoric at the conference. >> bill: it makes me a little uneasy that a very intelligent woman like yourself could even think that these people were worthy of being considered in black history month. because they are not that muchch different than the ku klux klan. >> oh, that's interesting. oh, wow, really?
8:20 pm
>> bill: they're not. if you look at the history -- >> i'm interested to see how you compare the two. >> bill: if you look at the history of all of the black panthers, all the shootings, all the violence, all the rhetoric, the police officers killed, over-the-top antiwhite, you compared to the violence and antiblack rhetoric of the kkk, there is not a lot of difference. the kkk did community programs, as well. i will give you the last word because i really appreciate you coming on. >> i am happy to be here. >> bill: i will ask you a personal favor to me. reassess the black panthers situation. there are groups that are far, far better for you to tout as helpingan african-americans. but go ahead, last word. >> last word. what i would say is that the black panthers were pro-black. they made sure that theirth community was provided for. every organization makes decisions in the time that they are in. however, yale, we are studying at archiving and making decisions for ourselves about what our future looks like. i am privileged to have been able to be a part of that cohort that went to oakland to study that living history.
8:21 pm
>> bill: kyle, gabby, thank you very much. directly ahead, a powerful democratic senator has said his party has lost its way. very interesting sound bite. we will play it fors you. latertv, later, gutfeld and mcguirk will analyze whether the trump administration is on tv too much.

8:24 pm
♪ >> bill: "factor followup" segment tonight. trouble within the democratic party. on sunday, former senatorim jim webb from virginia, a well-regarded democrat, said this. >> the democratic party over the past five or six years have moved very far to the left. when you can't have a jefferson, jackson dinner, which was the primary celebratory event of the democratic party for years, because jefferson and jackson were slaveholders, they were also great americans in their day, something different has happened to the democratic party.
8:25 pm
>> do you think they are tooat focused on identity politics? >> well, i think that the message that has been shaped by the democratic party has been shaped toward identity politics. they have lost the key part of their base, the people -- >> bill: joining us now from washington, lisa boothe and juan williams. f so, juan, it used to be that democrats held fundraisers under the banner of jefferson-jackson dinners. but you can't do that anymore. it is like john calhoun is out the window, jefferson and jackson are out of the democratic party window. what is going on? >> i think obviously, you have the base of the democratic party now as black, latino, educated, young people. i think their attitude toward jefferson-jackson and the old part of the democratic party is that they are not comfortable with it, they don't like it, especially, as you were d discussing in the previous segment, you have the reaction to the fact that many people were involved with slavery,t, remember, the older democratic
8:26 pm
party was the party of the segregationist south, especially after the civil war. so to celebrate that for this newer 21st century constituency of the democratic party, it doesn't fit. >> bill: i think that is going to shrink the party even further, lisa, by turning their backs on thomas jefferson and people like that, it just becomes more radicalized. am i wrong? >> no, i absolutely agree with you, bill. i think it is not only the racial identity of politics, it is also, you know, focusing on sex, it is focusing on issues a like transgender bathrooms are issues like climate change. which the majority of americans don't list as their top issues. i think you can see the way it does impact the democratic party, by looking at the current house makeup. you have got more than one-third of democrats coming from california, massachusetts, and new york. two-thirds of democrats are from either the east or west coast. the problem for the democratic party is, you got to be able to win these blue-collar states. you got to be able to win. bbl
8:27 pm
>> bill: do you think political correctness is strangling the democrats now? i mean, it really is out of control, to some extent.ra >> i don't know. i don't think so. clearly, what you have is a democratic party that i think is more in touch with the changing face of the country, right now -- >> bill: then why is donald trump president? >> oh, i think donald trump was successful in winning the electoral college. he didn't win the popular vote. >> bill: if you think of the democratic party is more in touch with the folks, that never would have happened, juan. never in a million years. >> no, no, no. i think donald trump stirred a lot of racial division in the country. but i think he also appealed, that is how he broke through state like michigan, wisconsin, where obama had won previously. suddenly, they went the other way. these people aren't racists. they just saw something different, and what donald trump was offering, i think, was a strong appeal to blue-collar
8:28 pm
whites about their economic future. >> bill: we will give you the last word, lisa, let me ask you the same question. you think political correctness is strangling the democratic party? >> i do think it is strangling the democratic party. what have we seen from them? we have only seen this continued shift to the left. right now, they are in the wilderness. they are trying to figure out how to get out, bill. if you look ahead to 2018, there are ten senate seats where democrats are running in states were president trump won. there are five of those states that he won by double digits. they are looking at a very redof map. >> bill: it all depends on how the president does. >> yes. >> bill: thank you very much, guys. plenty more ahead as "the factor" moves ahead this long. military judge on the bowe bergdahl case says he is disturbed by comments made donald trump. then should the white house stop being on tv so much? gutfeld and mcguirk have some thoughts. and we hope you stay tuned for those reports.e e

8:32 pm
>> bill: "unresolved problems" segment tonight. earlier this week, north korea launched a ballistic missile in violation of a u.n. mandate. the outlaw country did that to provoke a response from president trump. here now is dana perino,se spokesperson for bush the younger. i assume you were involved with a lot of conversations about these nuts, right? >> north korea was probably inum the top 20 issues. >> bill: president bush labeled them one of the axis of
8:33 pm
evil, along with iran and iraq. >> that was early on in 2002, in which he said that these areas countries that are pursuing weapons of mass destruction and they are regimes that could have terrorists pick up those weapons of mass destruction and they could hurt other people. >> bill: now, there is the current leader, kim jong-un. you didn't deal with him. you dealt with his father, who is as crazy as he is. >> i don't know, this one might take the cake.e. >> bill: okay. when you are dealing with a rogue outfit like this, i mean, president trump said, wt will deal with them harshly, the only way to deal with them harshly is to blow them up, is it not? they are not going to listen to reason. >> i think that north korea is a special case, given that it is such a closed society. there is very little t information. if you've ever seen one of those map that shows electricity throughout the world, pretty much all dark. this leader starves his own people. they are in concentration camps. and they are so brainwashed that it's very hard to get
8:34 pm
information in or out. one of the things that president bush decided to do was say that the clinton administration approach of offering concessions before they change their behavior, you are only going to get concessions if you change your behavior. >> bill: it didn't work. >> i remember specifically, tony snow was pressre secretary. july of 2006, fourth of july, great time, then, the north koreans always want attention. they are like a child, throwing a tantrum just around the time when you don't want it.nt we spent the rest of the time that evening trying to be with the fact that they had issued -- sent off these missiles. now they're doing it again. i'm not surprised they're doing it to president trump. >> bill: okay, i don't know if it is a problem, you have a t different kind of president now. i would say that president bush and barack obama were much more restrained, at least in their rhetoric. >> certainly true. you don't know in their actions
8:35 pm
so, trump is coming across as a guy that says, you cross us, you are going to pay a heavy price. >> president trump campaigned saying, i'm going to be unpredictable. that he thinks that that is -- >> bill: that is worrying a lot of people. >> i think that because president trump had such a good meeting with the prime minister of japan, shinzo abe --nk >> bill: they are not going to help us. the only ones with sway are the chinese. >> that is why president bush put together the six party talks to make sure that china, russia, japan, south korea, everybody was in the same direction. >> bill: do you feel that president trump will try the diplomacy route? right? >> i don't see any reason for him not to. i mean, what is the alternative? >> bill: he can blockade them. >> well, sanctions are one thing. they are already in place. >> bill: he can put a pretty big hurt on them if he wants to. >> but you are dealing with a leader that starves his own people. >> bill: but then he would be starving. there are things you can do to
8:36 pm
north korea that would provoke the situation upward. i don't think that is to anybody's benefit, but they i can't be shooting missiles off every three days. >> also, we need to understand better what their capabilities are, they can shoot missiles off, but are they aggressively advancing? >> bill: they have an atomic weapon. they have one. so that has to be --nd >> he seems willing to use it. >> bill: i think we should send dana over there to talk to the guys. >> [laughs]] did you see that his brother mysteriously turned up -- he was murdered earlier k today? >> bill: who, kim jong-un's brother? he's dead? >> you are going to send me over there? >> bill: we will send bodyguards with you. we will send hemmer with you. >> gutfeld, too, please. >> bill: no, you don't want to travel with him. when we come right back, will sergeant bowe bergdahl, charged with desertion, get his case thrown out becauset of comments made by president trump? we are investigating. the story is next. ♪ heigh ho ♪ heigh ho ♪ heigh ho heigh ho it's off to work we go

8:40 pm
>> announcer: "the o'reilly factor," the number one cable news show for 16 years and counting. >> bill: thanks for staying a with us. i am bill o'reilly. in the "law and order" segment,, the fate of sergeant bowe bergdahl. as you may know, he is charged with very serious crimes after leaving his post at afghanistan and putting his army unit in danger. yesterday in north carolina, lawyers for bergdahl asked the military judge to throw out the case because of statements made
8:41 pm
by donald trump. >> we have guys like bergdahl who get caught -- i mean, he left, he was a deserter. he was a deserter. he was a dirty, rotten deserter. and we knew he deserted it when we made the deal. now, why would you make a deal for a deserter? what would we do with sergeant bergdahl 50 years ago? that's right. boom.. boom! >> bill: here now to analyze, eboni williams and kimberly guilfoyle. so this trial, guilfoyle, is supposed to get underway in april, it has been going on forever, far too long. but the judge apparently said that he was disturbed by donald trump's statements, correct? >> okay, but these wereme statements made by candidate trump, and there haven't been any statements subsequent to him being sworn in and becoming thew 45th president of united statese >> bill: surely the judge knows that. >> nevertheless, he wants to make sure that there aren't any issues that specifically will have a litigation on the motion like this. it should not be granted. t
8:42 pm
you cannot say that there -- it should not be thrown out. look, they already tried to get a pardon from president obama, it didn't work. they are try to do because of the popular thing to do -- >> bill: if i were his lawyer, i would try to get it thrown out. but it is a military court, eboni, so we are not going to be subjected to politics as he would in a civilian court. >> ideally. >> bill: ideally. i mean, you never know what is in a judge's mind. he understands the seriousness of desertion. >> sure. >> bill: particularly because the charges are coupled with some soldiers getting hurt. >> hurt, absolutely. we have got then-candidate trump saying that people were killed. we know that is debunked. i agree with k.g. >> bill: what you mean, people were killed?d? >> that is what candidate trump -- >> bill: that evidence has been debunked. >> we don't know that it is >> bill: but it hasn't been debunked. be careful. >> fair enough. >> bill: it is going to be presented in the trial. >> we don't have any evidence that it is factually correct.

>> bill: we haven't seen him d at trial. >> when candidate trump said this, k.g. is right, he is allowed to say this. but now he is the commander-in-chief. a sitting united states president.eo i think for a lot of people, even in this military capacity, this five-person panel, i don't know that he will be able to make a distinction. you can't unring the bell. although he -- i wouldn't throw it out either. i will argue it is a problem. >> bill: is it just the judge making the decision? >> the judge will make the decision. >> bill: for the ultimate trial? >> it is a five panel -- five-member panel. >> active military. >> there are safeguards. they can decide and help other people. if they are prejudiced by their statements, they can remove them.. >> but you can't unring the bell. that's out there. >> bill: let's get to an immigration situation. there is a woman who wasio deported because she had an identity theft, which is aa felony, on her sheet. it was brought up last night. roll the tape. >> guadalupe garcia. she has been in this country for 22 years. look at what donald trump did. this is what donald trump did.

>> here is my question back to you -- >> this is exactly what donald trump, the deportation czar, has been doing. destroying american families. >> bill: let's clear that up.als country, correct, eboni? >> that is correct. that is factually correct. >> bill: jorge misled us. the children are. how old are the children? >> 14 and 16.. >> bill: 14, 16, they are u.s. citizens. guadalupe has been deported because she had, was it a felony conviction? >> felony charge. >> bill: now, are you okay with that, guilfoyle? >> i am okay with it. i have a serious problem with identity theft in this country, she committed a felony crime. not violent. >> bill: she has two kids here. >> i understand that. she was giving some leniency under the obama administration. >> bill: you are okay with that? >> i'm not saying that i'm happy for her and her family. i think it is disturbing.
8:45 pm
but you have to play within the rules. >> bill: the law is stated. >> the law is clear and she is here illegally according to the law. my issue is this. it is inconsistent from what we have heard candidate trump say on the campaign trail. we are supposed to be rid of racists, murderers. >> bill: time crunch, as always. here's what i would do if i were the president.ldld i would give her clemency. >> because you are a gracious man. >> bill: no, no. that is true, of course. [laughter] but that would make his case, look, i'm going to sign clemency for this woman. she can come back and rejoin her teenagers here. but we don't want any more of this. we will concentrate other really bad -- >> the children are u.s. citizens. they have subsequently visited their mother in mexico. >> bill: it would be an amazing p.r. move. c >> what would come of that, you are establishing a president. >> bill: you are not

appearances are helping the t trump administration, gutfeld. >> i don't think they care. when i look at her appearance, she seems absolutely -- absolutely unimpressed with doing television. she treats tv like i treat waxing. it is not a priority in my life. maybe once or twice a month. >> bill: are you talking about waxing your car?t >> some people call it a car. anyway, she is not worth -- podesta, her predecessor, who had the charm of a wedgie. >> bill: to get up at 5:00 on the morning to do these morning shows, put yourself at risk, you know you are going to be attacked on every show except "fox & friends," they will like you a little bit. i don't understand -- >> in her case, let's face it. she is very impressive, she broke the big glass ceiling. she's a mother. >> bill: she is on every day. >> she turned out to be a killer on the cable news talk shows. as a female trump supporter -- >> bill: do you really believe
