are part of the real world, whatever that means. what does this former reagan confidant, senator phil gramm, think republican should do differently? he is with us tomorrow at 4:00 p.m. we will see you then. >> dana: i'm dana perino with kimberly guilfoyle, juan williams, jesse watters, and kennedy. it's 5:00 in new york city and this is "the five" ." >> we are getting close to health care. it will come up in the early to mid part of next year. i think we have the votes. we feel confident we have the votes. i would like to see it done this year. if we get it done, it's a great achievement. don't forget. it took years for the reagan administration to get taxes done. i've been here for a little more than nine months. we need a wall in this country.
you know it. we know it. everybody knows it. we have to have a wall. >> dana: this afternoon, the president holding an impromptu press conference with mitch mcconnell taking about 40 questions in 30 minutes. mr. trump insisting he will get through his agenda. he and the set of majority leader mitch mcconnell spoke to reporters in the rose garden after their white house meeting. insisting there is no bad blood following some contentious moments between them after the g.o.p. failed to pass an obamacare repeal. >> our relationship with this gentleman is outstanding. has been outstanding. we are working very hard to get the tax cuts. we will continue to work hard to get the health care completed. i'm going to be surprising some people with an economic development bill later on but i haven't even told mitch because i want to focus on tax cuts and some other things right now. >> we have the same agenda. we have been friends and acquaintances for a long time. we talk frequently. we don't give you a readout
every time we have a conversation but frequently we talk on the weekends or about the issues before us. contrary to what some of you may have reported, we are together totally on this agenda to move america forward. >> dana: jesse, that was some very serious public display of affection between the president and the majority leader. saying they do get along and that they have an agenda and they are -- maybe they are going to praise in public and criticize in private. >> jesse: they are best friends for now until mcconnell blows it and trump sets him on fire but symbolically it was a show forc force. showing they are together and united. they are showing the democrats they are united, strong, they have the majority and they are going to keep the majority. this is also a rallying cry for the republicans, leading to get in gear or else they are going to be toast in the midterms.
it really shows the media totally under control. he's got this. you can tell trump is in midseason form by how crisp the hand gestures are paired with eric crist an energetic and he takes lots of questions, you know he's feeling good about himself. i think he played the hits. he bragged about the electoral college victory. he dared hillary to run again. he took credit for the great stock market. the only thing we didn't get was a nickname for mcconnell. i think he is a closer. the president is a fourth-quarter guy. it's crunch time. he knows it. the year is almost up. he is all in on tax reform. he is going to punt daca, may be going to punt the border funding. but he has to get tax reform done or it's over. >> dana: unlike some white house press briefings were the same question is asked over and over again, there wasn't necessarily in order to the
conference. i like it for how chaotic it seemed on the press' side. he covered a whole range of topics. he said he's going to have an economic develop and plan. he said they have the votes for health care reform but they are going to wait a while. they talked about cuba. the tax reform piece. also was able to talk about the fact that he will have an opiate opiate -- waiting on the national emergency for opiate addiction. he says these things take time so everybody has been asking where my paperwork is. takes time for the government to do that. i don't really know what midseason fighting form is but i think i get the jest. >> juan: this reminds me of what happened on friday when the chief of staff john kelly was sent out. now we have mitch mcconnell sent out. a lot of this is about what's going on behind the scenes which as there is a civil war raging.
steve bannon, the president's former top political advisor, said he's got a war on the g.o.p. establishment. what does he mean by that? talking about congress, saying congress is made up of established republicans who are not backing this president, and he wants their support. and therefore bannon is going about trying to throw out republicans he considers insufficiently trump backers. you got that and you've got the president at war with a leading member of the senate, bob corke corker. that hasn't stopped. that went out over the weekend, dana. you have the president saying don't pay any attention to these people. it's not true what bob corker says is crazy. not one member of the senate, including mitch mcconnell, say anything different. >> dana: kimberly, bob corker is working with tom cotton on the iran deal. perhaps there's a lot, i don't know, the relationship intrigue
is masking some actual work that's happening behind the scenes. i'm not positive. >> kimberly: it's a significant point when you see someone like tom cotton, widely respected in the area of foreign policy. has been a very strong, vocal opponent against the iran deal, saying it wasn't appropriate, wasn't a good deal. corker is working with him. that's what you want to see, not just a tweet storm. >> dana: cotton is working with corker to make it happen. >> kimberly: i think that's very good. it is more indicative of what's going on then perhaps tweets here and there. i think this is a unique opportunity, kind of reset the relationship between mcconnell and the president. nothing will make it more believable than someone's on the board. they need to get tax cuts. they do need to have a budget that fully funds the military because we are not in the best position since the obama years in terms of fully funding and being combat ready. all these things are important. republicans need to pick up
three or four seats in the senate so they can continue to get legislation through so the president won't have this problem every time getting through his agenda. it's been a little bit of a slow start, get the training wheels off and i'll have to push it through. >> dana: before we talk about the whole bannon movement, i want to capitalize on this because kennedy, i know you've been covering this on your show. this is senator graham talking about the republicans needing to get tax reform done. >> mitch mcconnell is not our problem. our problem is that we promised to repeal and replace obamacare and we failed. we promised to cut taxes and we have yet to do it. if we are successful, mitch mcconnell is fine. if we don't, we are all in trouble. >> dana: i'm not sure i believe -- even if tax reform were to fail, that all of that all of a sudden they're going to try to elect democrats because they think their economic condition would be better. >> kennedy: i think what steve bannon is hoping is that they
elect different kinds of republicans. steve bannon sees it, the republican party has to change. mitch mcconnell and others in washington being happy being complacent in making excuses that congress can't be put on a timeline with excessive expectations. if you look at mitch mcconnell today, he looked like a hostage. by steve bannon who is going after him in direct terms. bannon on hannity, the values voters summit is naming mitch mcconnell and people in line with mcconnell, they are the ones whose heads are on the chopping block. the president has been tweeting at the senate majority leader but that he is standing next to the president saying we are best friends. mitch mcconnell has to be very emotional and confused today, trying to figure out who are his friends. who are his enemies? i think lindsey graham brings it into focus. the point is, don't be distracted by social media or
operatives who are no longer in the white house. do your job. pass the bills. do your work. leave the senate republicans and get something done for the voters who put you there. >> dana: >> it's the season of war against a g.o.p. establishment. we need to move with urgency. the president of the united states deserves respect and support. you can come to a microphone and say i'm not going to vote for mitch mcconnell for majority leader. >> steve has been a friend of mine. i like him a lot. he's doing what he thinks is the right thing. some people he may be looking at, i'm going to see if we talk him out of that because frankly they are good people. >> my goal as a leader of the republican party is to keep the senate majority. the way you do that is not complicated. you have to nominate people who can actually win because winners
make policy and losers go home. that's my approach. that's the way you keep a governing majority. >> dana: jesse, i imagine mitch mcconnell spent a lot of time at lunch explaining his position. >> jesse: i'm not a big fan of mitch mcconnell but i thought that statement was dead on. winners are in the senate and losers go home. what he rattle off when he talked about the losing candidates the republicans nominated? sharon angle, todd aiken. o'donnell. they are flamethrowers and they burst on the scene through the primaries by the help of the grassroots and they get shredded at the general. where is your senate seat? the democrats have it. you don't want to cut your nose off to spite your face. he is saying he wants to stay in the majority and i don't mind bannon trying to primary guys. if you are going to primary people, primaried the people that sunk obamacare repeal. it >> juan: that is not the
case with luther strange. >> jesse: i understand that. that's the fight republicans are going to have to make and i am worried about them spending boatloads of dope on races and seats that don't matter. republicans have an opportunity for a little wiggle room. you could lose rand paul or lose ted cruz. and still have the slim majority of 51 votes. right now they don't have that opportunity. >> juan: one of the things bannon set over the weekend as we are cutting off your oxygen, mitch mcconnell. what he meant is we are going after republican donors who are not satisfied that the republican senate has not advanced the legislation. they are not particularly wedded to a trump, although bannon's. they want progress. they want to see something on the republican nomination of the house and senate. the idea that you go to mitch mcconnell said his job is to keep the republican majority in sam cutting off your oxygen, that's an existential swipe.
>> dana: will be interesting to see if president trump can bridge these two worlds. can he keep the bannons happy and the mcconnells happy? that's the toughest part. >> kimberly: bannon is going to run his game. he's nato's list of who he thinks needs to go. even if mcconnell took up this, he's probably going to try to take him and others out. we've seen what happens when bannon has an idea that's in accord with the president, i.e. luther strange, he's going to go his way. >> dana: we are going to keep talking about this throughout the week but we are going to move on. he deserted his platoon, betrayed his country but bowe bergdahl blames president trump for his admission of guilt today. here y from bergdahl himself. kyle, we talked about this. there's no monsters. but you said they'd be watching us all the time.

♪ >> kimberly: three years ago president obama celebrated his decision to swap five islamic terrorists for a u.s. army deserter. today bowe bergdahl pleaded guilty to charges he endangered his comrades by abandoning his post. president trump, like a lot of other americans, was livid about the bergdahl trade and expressed
it frequently on the campaign trail. >> i get tired of watching sergeant bergdahl deal. we get a traitor, they get five killers. we get sergeant bergdahl, a dirty, rotten traitor. six people died going after him. six people died going after sergeant bergdahl. we get bergdahl. our president doesn't have a clue. he's a bad negotiator. he's the one who did bergdahl. we get bergdahl, they get five killer terrorists everybody wanted over there. >> kimberly: bergdahl is a traitor but he blames president trump for his guilty plea, claiming he would have never gotten a fair trial. >> me as well go back to kangaroo courts and lynch mobs. the people who are to the point of saying just shoot him, you can ever convince those people to change their mind. >> kimberly: he had back allegations he wanted to join
the taliban, calling the accusation insulting. three years ago, jesse, i remember covering this story. people are seeing that justice was served, although the sentencing remains. >> jesse: i'm glad we got bergdahl back but obama lied about it and then blew the swap. rice said he served with honor and distention. that was a lie. then we get one guy back for five taliban commanders. it's kind of like the iran deal. the president got snookered. where are these five taliban commanders? we are supposed to be watching them? i don't believe that is the case. they are all missing somewhere. they are probably back on the battlefield. >> dana: three of them tried to reconnect with the taliban. >> jesse: that sounds about right for an obama deal. abc says two men were injured searching for bergdahl. reports were up to five men died as a result of the search for bergdahl. the father, remember that press
conference? he was speaking arabic and the rose garden. that was weird. the platoon was very upset. they were on megyn kelly's show and said this guy was not a hero. hero. he converted to islam and he was not going out to tell a u.s. commander that the lack of discipline in his platoon was worrisome. that was a lie. they said he wants to try to talk to the taliban. that was probably a defense tactic for p.r. reasons. to be honest, i went to idaho and investigated some of the neighbors and friends. that guy is a naive kid. kind of a lost in the woods, pie-in-the-sky dreamer. i don't think he had evil intentions but i think what he did, he deserted and i think he deserves justice. >> kimberly: kennedy, he said he tried 12 or 15 times to escape and he was put back in. he was kept in a dark cave like thing. where is justice here? is it going to be in the form of
an increased sentence? some say being housed in the taliban in prison for five years should be justice enough and having the felony conviction. >> kennedy: i am going to interview judge napolitano on my show tonight and i agree. i wish there were a trial because i think there are a lot of questions that remain and questions around the circumstances of his desertion. if you are accused of these horrific acts, and those acts leading to the death or injury of people you served with, if you felt you were innocent, why would you copped a plea and if you felt you were innocent, and there was so much writing on the verdict and so many powerful forces against you, why wouldn't you take the opportunity to stand up for yourself. that's why i don't buy his ds interview. i think he might have a screw loose. i think this guy might be mentally unstable from the get-go. maybe he should have been weeded
out of the process before but unfortunately with people like that, sometimes it's too late to before you realize the full extent of their mental impairment. having said that, i wish he had more answers and i wish we knew what led to some of the statements by susan rice. >> kimberly: he have the opportunity to go for a trial and he opted to go in front of a military judge, take the plea, take his chances. he was thinking maybe in the interest of getting a reduced sentence. >> dana: i imagine that's what his lawyers recommended any probably trusted them. general jack keane talked about how the military had kind of screwed this up because they had not -- he could understand how, when i got to president obama, the information was not complet complete. did they embellish? possibly. at this point, the whole episode has made it more difficult for the united states in negotiations to get hostages back from other hostile entities.
there is a real consequence. regardless of the justice, there's ongoing consequences. >> kimberly: jack keane is the best. >> juan: i don't understand why conservatives take to light beating of a member of the u.s. military. >> kimberly: he is a committed -- >> juan: top commanders recommended there not be punishment for bowe bergdahl. of course that was reversed and now he's back in the trial situation. but remember, this is the military was said that. secondly, what did we hear from bergdahl? he was in a cage, held in a cage for four to five years, tried to escape twice. by the military's own account, he was badly tortured, like the torture people went through in terms of pows during vietnam. bergdahl says he was not deserting. he says he was going off to talk to a commander about the failures, lack of discipline inside his own platoon.
that's what would've been interesting to hear at a trial. this kind of presumptive, oh, he's a bad man. he's a traitor. i would say let the military talk about bergdahl. what we've heard is less condemnation from the military then we've heard from conservative commentators who are looking to lash out at bowe bergdahl. i don't see why people are leaving somehow like he is there bad boy. you're just going to beat him up. >> kimberly: because he's a criminal and a deserter and he caused people to be injured. >> juan: he's not a deserter, he says. >> kimberly: in the records from the court and the pretrial rulings. he says president trump, he can't get a fair trial. >> jesse: he was campaigning. he wasn't president. >> juan: he said the man who is now president, the
commander-in-chief said bowe bergdahl should be shot. >> jesse: obama waited on so many cases. he did the exact same thing. obama was president then. >> kennedy: what about the five taliban members who were exchanged for him? how many deaths where they are responsible for? >> juan: or we send our men and women out to fight we have an obligation to bring them home. >> kennedy: unless they are in benghazi. >> juan: i don't care where they are. >> kimberly: he has been brought home. it >> kennedy: rescuing people in danger. >> kimberly: he's been brought home and i was going to serve justice and pay for what he did and that's why the judge allowed all the evidence admissible, all the people injured, including british soldiers. jimmy kimmel may have alienated republican viewers with his show. hear from him next. look at this...
