4:00 pm
>> so help me god. >> so help me god. >> bret: congratulations, it may order. thanks for inviting us into your home tonight. that is it for this "special report." fair, balanced, and still unafraid. "the story" hosted by sandra smith tonight, it starts right now. sandra? >> sandra: we pick up "the story" right now with a fox alert. the so-called bomb cyclone crippling the east coast, dumping heavy snow from the carolinas to maine. at least six people are dead, 100,000 without power, with 58 million people in the storm's path. temperatures will struggle to stay above 0 degrees across the midwest and northeast. we got our eye on that for you and so much more at this hour. including an even bigger story on the u.s. economy. good evening, everyone, i am sandra smith info martha maccallum tonight.
4:01 pm
his street made again, new york stock exchange with no apparent end in sight. for the very first time, not only did the dow hit 25000 points, it stayed there. closing above that extraordinary market, the excitement palpable at the start of trading. >> standby for glory, ladies and gentlemen, a mere 30 seconds away from what we think could be the opening bell ringing on what could be 25,000. >> there it is. that graphic goes fast. dow, 25,000, halfway between 20k and 30k. a little less than a year. >> sandra: stocks are higher due to the release of stronger-than-expected jobs data. >> sandra: and at 4:00 p.m. eastern time today, it became official. >> they dow making history once again, closing above 25,000 for the first time ever. >> one report noting the
4:02 pm
near-meteoric rise since president trump took office noting, "consider it took the dow 14 years to climb, and three and half years to reach 20,000. the rise from 20,000 to 25,000, not even 12 months. don't blink or you'll miss another landmark." the news of the dow surged not missed on president trump who has now set a brand-new goal. >> we broke a barrier, and there were others that said that we wouldn't break 25,000 by the end of the eighth year. and we are in the 11th month. we did, in fact, brakes 25,000, very substantially break it, very easily. i guess our new number 30,000. what it means is, every time you see that number goes up, it means jobs, immense success, means 401(k)s that are flourishing. >> sandra: here now, the white house director of legislative affairs. next stop, 30,000?
4:03 pm
>> obviously we are excited with the market. it shows enthusiasm and support for the agenda, particularly what we have been able to do on the regulatory fund. we are also excited about delivering relief to middle-income families. in addition to the stock number, as he mentioned, on employment at a seven year low. unimplement for hispanics at an all-time low. and now, since the text from package release, 920,000 americans have either received a bonus or increased wages from companies that have announced benefits for their employees. >> sandra: the president takes a lot of credit for this, we see him tweeting about it a lot, rightly so, exciting for the american people to see the stock market going up like that, but president obama back in december, he took credit for it. he said this is the result of his years of policies. to what specifically has the president done in his first year of office that he can take
4:04 pm
credit for this enormous rise in the stock market? >> sandra, i think it is a couple of things. i think it is rolling back the regulatory burden that was here during the obama years. it has given investors a lot of encouragement. i think the tax plan has certainly provided relief. lowering the corporate rate has helped to bring jobs back to america. providing that, all of those bonuses to all of those workers. nancy pelosi said the tax plan would the economic armageddon. not one democrat voted for it. it was 920,000 workers that who see message remember that in november. >> sandra: i want through the most recent tweet up on the screen, about ten months ago that he tweeted this. "thank you to the great republican senators who showed up to our meeting on immigration reform. we must build the wall, stop illegal immigration, end chain migration, and cancel the visa lottery. the current system is unsafe and unfair to the great people of our country. time for change." now that tax reform is done,
4:05 pm
marc, how do you prioritize the goals of this white house? what is going to be the next big fight? >> well, we have always wanted to solve the daca problem, the president put forward and said, here is what we want in exchange for providing for these deferred plans for those who arrived here as illegals. we are looking to solve that problem. but i think there are also budgets -- budget usually is approved by the end of september. the president put forth his pain in february, here we are in january without a deal. our national security is in jeopardy without being able to provide funds for our troops. >> sandra: that is obviously an issue, marc. that deadline is quickly approaching, january 19th. he just had chuck schumer leading democrats saying, we have beverage going into this, and as you know, she wants daca tied into whatever happens there. so what is the leverage the
4:06 pm
democrats going into this. >> we need 60 votes united states senate. we are going to need to get democrat supporting have us be bipartisan. what we kind confounding is why they don't want to make sure that i country is safe. we also want a solution for daca, but why are they getting married together remains confusing to us. we think it is important that we go ahead and get this budget deal and that we fund the government, take care of the people that we need to take care of, and we make sure that our country is safe. we also want to solve daca, but tying them together is just going to -- >> sandra: you think they have no leverage with the daca making it into the funding? >> no, i think there is leverage. we need 60 votes. but i think it's frustrating to understand, why, if we are all in support of the need to get a budget deal in place, why it with our troops held hostage over those issues, we think daca should be south, we put forth our proposal to congress.
4:07 pm
we are waiting for them to come back with the legislation for us, but to tie it to them to troops and hold us hostage to a solution on a problem for illegal immigrants is difficult for us to understand. >> sandra: it is good to get one tonight specifically to talk about the economy and this soaring stock market. it seems to be getting lost. you're not hearing a lot about that. the president accurately notes that. we are covering it here because it is something that affects the american people. marc short, thank you. joining us now, marc thiessen, a fox news contributor, and zac petkanas, a hillary campaign. marc, i'll start with your first. our accounts are tied to the stock market, this is the result of taxes going down, job growth, you just heard from marc, there are a lot of good things happening in the economy. >> absolutely. we should all be celebrating
4:08 pm
when the economy is booming, whether we are republicans or democrats. unemployment, as he pointed out, down to a 17-year low, 1.7 million jobs created in this past year. we have had two quarters now of above 3% economic growth, and the new york fed has projected that the last quarter of the last year is going to be a 4% growth and we'll have a third quarter -- the first quarter of this year will be about 3% as well. the last time with will go straight quarters of above 3% economic growth was 13 years ag ago. >> sandra: it has been anemic, that's for sure. that business-friendly environment, that's like, you know, you saw donald trump stepping, run for president. there were so many people and businesses that just wanted a friendlier environment. zac, i think you are probably going to pour cold water on this. >> i am. the stock market is doing well right now, but to suggest that this is some sort of spectacular boost from the last year is not
4:09 pm
backed up by the facts. >> sandra: what are you not see? >> for example, 26% growth in the dow with obama since donald trump came into office. since obama came into office during his first year from inauguration day to this point in his presidency, it increased by 33%. the s&p 500 increased by 37% during the same time versus trump at 18%. and so, again, it is great that the stock market is doing well. it is not doing as well as it was in terms of growth under the first year of obama. >> sandra: so you are seeing and record stock market though. you are seeing a surge that we have never seen before, and a president that is talking about it going up from here. marc, i'll tell you what, i look at these wall street notes, and there are profits at major corporations, american companies, to back up the gains we have seeing. but i will ask you this -- i probably should have asked marc short this as well, is there a
4:10 pm
record with the president tying his policy wins so closely to the stock market when it is only one gauge of the economy? they could be a correction. honestly, that would still be healthy to see for the stock market. it would actually indicate a healthier rally. but if he is so closely aligning himself with the stock market, is that a problem? >> if that was the only indicator that was going, that would be a problem. all the indicators are that we are going full speed. again, two quarters of 3% of growth, going to be expected to be 4%, the obama average was less than 2% of economic growth. nobody is pining for the ideas of the obama economy. you read the financial press today, but we are hearing are concerns that the economy might be overheating, that it may be growing too fast. we never heard anybody worrying about that, so i think that --
4:11 pm
>> outlets, like -- >> sandra: zac, get back in there. >> the indicators are good, but the fact that we have the slowest -- things are good, >> sandra: i will tell you what is good, zac. in the days following the tax reform getting done, at&t handing out thousand dollar bonuses to 200,000 of its employees. but when, $300 million investment, increasing corporate giving, giving. comcast, $1,000 bonuses to its employees. raising the minimum wage on their own. the government not telling them to do it. raising minimum wage to $15 an hour. among other things. and directly attributing this. these are things you have to point out. but obviously, there is always a concern that anything could throw a wrench in the system. thanks to both of you for being here.
4:12 pm
all right, steve bannon agreed to keep quiet when he left the trump campaign, but what if you broke the deal? can the president's soon to keep his story from getting out or is this a clear-cut case of exercising free speech? constitutional law professor jonathan turley is here to explain the legal options on both sides, and they may surprise you. and nobody saw this coming. is the department of justice finally ready to lock her up? jason chaffetz and marie harf are here to respond to some explosive new rumors that could prove president trump was right. >> hillary is likely to be under investigation for many years, probably concluding in criminal trial. nick was born to move.
4:13 pm

4:16 pm
>> sandra: breaking tonight, tomorrow, house intel committee members will finally be able to seize those last documents they've been requesting from the doj for months regarding testimony from witnesses and the russian investigation. this means more emails released to judicial watch straight from anthony weiner's personal laptop sent from his wife, whom aberdeen, at the time. we would love to show you what they said, but most are completely unreadable thanks to heavy reactions by the feds.
4:17 pm
can you blame them? the information is classified. apparently not classified enough to charge huma abedin with a crime. also reports that they may reopen the criminal investigation. trace gallagher is live at our west coast newsroom with the story. hey, trace. >> reporting that an ally of jeff sessions tells them the ag is very interested in finding out exactly how hillary clinton and her aide handle classified material, including how much classified information was sent over clinton's private email server and who put the information into an unclassified environment. in the meantime, clinton supporters are already out and for saying, here we go again, her communications director nick merrill saying that in the wake of steve bannon's explosive comments about the family that mr. trump is now resorting to diversion and distraction with the help of his attorney general.
4:18 pm
the president has clearly been sounding this email worn for quite some time. it was even a major narrative of his campaign. remember this back-and-forth? watch. >> if i win, i am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation, because there has never been so many lies, so much deception. >> it is just awfully good that someone with the temperament of donald trump is not in charge of the law in our country. >> because you would be in jail. >> there is also evidence the department of justice under donald trump began asking congress two months ago for information concerning hillary clinton's email scandal. brian fallon, the former spokesperson for the doj and the clinton campaign, says this sets a dangerous precedent saying, "the justice department should not be opening itself up to the perception that it is bending to political pressures from the white house." in other words, but trump is
4:19 pm
bullying the doj. conservatives have a much different take, saying that despite former fbi director james comey repeated the opening and closing the email probe, it was never adequately investigated. tom fitton, who heads up conservative judicial watch, which also sued the state department to gain access to emails, said he believes there is enough evidence to reinitiate the investigation. recall the geo the dash we cale doj for comment. >> sandra: here is jason chaffetz who led the charge in the clinton email investigation and marie harf, former obama state department spokesperson. both are fox news contributor's. i saw you guys in the green room on the way up here. you were fired up. ring and, what do you think? >> a new fact pattern and place. the attorney general should be looking at it. i think jeff sessions is ten months late and looking at this. you've uncovered a number of things with the inspector
4:20 pm
general, michael horowitz, and the people he has at the doj. i think they are worried about what the inspector general is looking at. and then you have the congress, both the house and the senate unveiling and uncovering more documents and more information. devin nunes and trey gowdy and tom rooney and the people on the intel community, they shouldn't have to negotiate a duly issued subpoena. this was supposedly a closed case. they should have provided all the documents back when the original subpoena was issued in august. >> sandra: you look at those emails on the fact that we can't read them, marie, huma abedin, they had to react so much, how was she not charged with a crime? >> at the department of justice and career investigators have been working on this for months now, and, yes, there are some high-profile pieces that we have talked about that had conflicts and that are part of the investigation because of that. but i don't think we should tare
4:21 pm
entire investigation because some people don't like the outcome. i think that hillary spokesperson was actually right when he said the department of justice cannot look like it is bending to political pressure from the white house. every time donald trump says, look into this, jeff sessions should look into this, the doj should look into this, it gives the appearance that there are politics in play. it gives that appearance. >> sandra: that is the risk. response from the hillary clinton camp. brian fallon said, it is dangerous, leads to the perception they are bending to political pressures. >> i think it does. >> the imperative should be to get to the truth. when it was uncovered that the fbi director and the host of people around him were making the decisions and writing drafts exonerating hillary clinton before they had interviewed some 16 witnesses, that is absolutely wrong. and when you look at trey gowdy and john ratcliffe and they look at this case and they say, this
4:22 pm
case, absolutely different and out of style and out of protocol, than any other case they have seen, that is why congress does oversight. >> jeff sessions, i am happy for him to look at the files and the investigation to have career folks who work under democrats and republicans walking through the investigation, how they got the answer they did. but i don't like is, if you don't like the answer politically, then somehow, when a new party is in power, you reopen the investigation. that is what i don't like. >> sandra: time is going so fast. so much. the nunes deal in the document, it leading to the suppression investigation, i wanted to ask about that, but i also wanted to share this tweet -- excuse me, this poll. tweeted about the special counsel with robert mueller jailing members, a message to mueller, it stays strong and stand tall. you are indeed answering the people's call, it is going to fall, around you they are building a wall.
4:23 pm
we look forward to the day to prison they will all be hauled. >> that is the political grandstanding that the left is using to raise money. that is what is wrong. it is not based on facts. it's based on a poem. she has put herself out there on this witch hunt that is just -- >> i don't think we should let this one congresswoman's rhetoric, the fact that the russian investigation is serious, nothing may come from it in terms of collusion, but we have an obligation to let the investigation run its course. we can't let this crazy rhetoric stand in the way. >> sandra: mark meadows and jim jordan both calling on jeff sessions, saying it is time for them to step down citing recent leaks in the justice department and the fbi, saying attorney general jeff sessions must recuse himself from the russian investigation, but it would appear he has no control at all.
4:24 pm
>> attorney general sessions, his time has come, he's got to go. i agree with meadows and jordan on this. he is nonexistent in this investigation. he is irrelevant. i think it is time for him to go. >> sandra: you have felt like that for a while. marie? >> jeff sessions is incredibly conservative. he has supported the president on a number of policies. it is so fascinating to me that conservative members of congress want to throw him under the bus, because he recused himself and because of leaks that are happening in the government. he is on their side on policy. it is fascinating. >> he is nonexistent. their major systemic problems, and they are not fixing them. >> he is pursuing policies based upon -- we like each other. we get along. we just don't agree on everything, but we get along. >> we like each other. >> sandra: i know you had a long day. thanks for being here. coming up, she was criticized for being one of the last women in hollywood to call out harvey
4:25 pm
weinstein, but now meryl streep coming forward to call out the women in trump's family because they haven't done enough? and the band and bombshell book bombshell fell out moving at lightning speed tonight, trump now threatening to sue to silence his former advisor. does he have a case? constitutional law advisor jonathan turley has the answer. then governor huckabee with insider scoop on the real story behind the betrayal. >> do you think steve bannon has a defamation case against president trump? >> i will tell you this. i have it on good authority that he is considering that. a breap it instantly opens your nose... up to 38% more than cold medicine alone go to today to request a free sample.

4:29 pm
>> you see it bannon betray him? anywhere it's bannon? >> he called me a great man last night. i don't talk to him. that's just -- >> sandra: that was president trump earlier distancing himself tonight from his former chief strategist in the wake of that bombshell. this comes as the president is now demanding the author and publisher of "fire and fury" stop production and apologize. trump lawyers sending a letter
4:30 pm
saying "mr. trump hereby demands that you immediately cease and desist from any further publication. late this afternoon, early learned steve bannon is now reportedly considering a defamation suit against a president. do either have a case? here now, jonathan turley, constitutional attorney at george washington university. good to see you. first off, does the president have a case? >> not really. this is a very unlikely type of challenge if it was ever actually brought into court. he is asking for a prior restraint in the strongest case, it has a low likelihood of success. this is not a particularly strong case. much of what has been attributed to mr. bannon is opinion. more importantly, this is the scourge of washington. tell-all books have been around since the early republic. i don't blame the president for being upset with people like bannon who leave service and immediately dump on the administration. but he does have first amendment
4:31 pm
rights, and i think this is going to create rather bad optics with little chance of success. >> sandra: one important distinction that you make in your column, regardless of whether the president has a case, when you read through that link the letter, trump's personal lawyers, it is putting steve bannon on notice. >> it is. in some ways, the attorney, and sending this letter, is also looking down the road. he is not, presumably, at seeing the book. he doesn't know what bannon is going to be saying. so this is a shot across the bow and saying, we believe you have already cross that line, and we are prepared to sue you if you continue to make defamatory statements. it is just not a very compelling threat with a public official. the supreme court has established a very high standard for defamation. that requires knowing a
4:32 pm
falsehood or knowing disregard or reckless disregard of the truth. it is a standard that is very hard to make and it is designed so that people can say bad things about public officials. >> sandra: in the case of the nondisclosure agreement with bannon, you make the case it is very different than when it comes to, say, when trump had someone working for his company sign them versus somebody who works inside the white house for the government. in the case of steve bannon, reportedly bringing a suit against the president, would he have a case? >> nope. he doesn't have a case either. this is something of two guys making threats and neither is very compelling. i think bannon is even less compelling. with the president has said about steve bannon is opinion, and steve bannon may no longer be a public official. he is a public figure and he falls under the very same standard in terms of the constitutional standard for defamation. the likelihood of his succeeding against the president is
4:33 pm
infinitesimally small. >> sandra: for know my professor turley, great to get your insight on that. >> thank you. >> sandra: this trump-bannon battle can be summed up, "bannon was shot on the cell phone and run over by a tank." here now, governor mike huckabee, also fox news contributor, also a study of history, a good one at that. would you agree with that statement? >> yeah, i think it was probably steve bannon's worst moment. i don't know what he was thinking, i don't know why he thought this was a good strategy. this really comes down to something bigger than a legal issue. i think the professor was spot on, almost impossible to win a lawsuit if you are a public
4:34 pm
figure. you just about can't do it. here is something that ought to govern these things. honor. honor and decency. which, when you go out after having been put in a position of trust. i will call at the robert de niro circle of trust if you remember the movie "meet the parents." once you get out of that circle of trust, you never get back in it. but if you get put in it, then you have, i believe, a moral obligation to honor the trust of the person who put you in that position. sandra, it is disturbing to me that people get in a political job than they want to make money off of it by going and telling a bunch of stuff. frankly, whether it is true or not is immaterial. two things you give to someone if you take a job like this. one is her loyalty and 2s or confidentiality. if you can't take those two things into my job, you shouldn't take it. if you violate them, it then you have no honor and you should never have been in those positions to begin with. >> sandra: it is wrong for them to just see him out there,
4:35 pm
and one of the only responses we have seen from bannon since all of this came out, he is a good man, he said of the president. >> well, i think that is probably, i would like to believe that is what he thinks. but it is interesting to me to watch the media on the left. just a few days ago, steve bannon was a nazi, he was a goose-stepping goon. he know he is a source for these negative things about the president, and he is a hero to the very people who were calling him everything but a decent human being. i mean, that, to me, is the great irony in all of this. it is not so much this trashy book that has been poured out, most of which, i think will be discredited, and people who have been quoted have said, i didn't say those things. but the bigger issue is, why does the left pretend that they suddenly like steve bannon when, in fact, they have called him everything but a decent human being up until they think he is
4:36 pm
responsible for trashing donald trump? >> sandra: it is amazing to see how it thereto and has changed, isn't it? one other quick then, a veteran republican strategist who said bannon was shot on the south lawn, the president shifted in gear and ran him over again, he said bannon saw his role as a lot bigger than it ever was and than it ever would be. he said, that was really the problem, the problem that broke them apart. he couldn't decide who had more power. >> candidates win elections, candidates lose elections. when political consultants and operatives think it is all about them, they really have disqualify themselves from being in position. whether the candidate wins or loses, they take a vacation on the riviera because they get paid. the candidate is figuring out how to pay his mortgage if he loses. nobody returning his calls. i get put out with political operatives and people who are
4:37 pm
consultants who think it is all about them and that they are the ones who win the campaigns. let them get their own names on the ballot and let's see how big they are. that is my message to them. if you are that good then get your name on the ballot, you run, you win, you serve and get evaluated for how well you do it. >> sandra: really be something to watch. governor huckabee, thank you for being here tonight. >> sandra: thanks, sandra >> sandra: president trump has a powerful message for those who still think kneeling during the national anthem is a good idea. first, more proof of the dirty dirty tactics that behind that and a trump dossier as the company that claims they are the real victims in all of this, this man says fusion gps tried to ruin his life, planting fake stories, calling him everything from a pedophile to a drug trafficker. next. >> date produced huge amounts of
4:38 pm
fake information, accusing me from being a pedophile to being an extortionist. on. today we're bringing you america's number one shave at lower prices every day. putting money back in the pockets of millions of americans. as one of those workers, i'm proud to bring you gillette quality for less, because nobody can beat the men and women of gillette. gillette - the best a man can get.
4:39 pm
4:40 pm
4:41 pm
4:42 pm
>> sandra: breaking tonight, we could soon know who paid the firm behind that infamous anti-trump dossier. within the last hour, a federal judge denying the company's request to squash a congressional subpoena from the house intelligence committee to provide bank records as part of its investigation into russian meddling in the 2016 election. it comes the day after the founders of fusion gps wrote an op-ed claiming they were the real victims and the russian collusion case. tonight, another one of their alleged victims coming out with their fear and intimidation tactics. alex boyd says that after he criticized one of fusion's clients, he was labeled a pedophile, drug trafficker, extortionist, and even a
4:43 pm
homosexual spreading aids. what was your experience with the firm? >> well, fusion was basically hired to work with a group of venezuelan white-collar criminals, and in the course of my work, i exposed rampant corruption related to this venezuelan group of people, and fusion gps was retained to basically obstruct any further criticism in the media, whether from independent bloggers or from large media organizations such as "the wall street journal." so upon their visit in to try to convince them that they were understanding captains of industry, my flat in london was broken into, the laptops that i had were stolen, pictures of my children were left along
4:44 pm
with messages of sexual abuse, and i believe that fusion gps had a hand in doing all of that. >> sandra: so what do you make now -- i am sure you have seen this recent op-ed that the cofounders road, they went on the attack. devin nunes, the house chair, specifically naming him, accusing him of trying to tarnish our firm, to punish us for highlighting the links to russia. what do you make of them is saying that we are the victims in all of this? >> i don't think anyone can tarnish them or their firm. they have tarnished themselves by associating themselves with the like of venezuelan weight criminal cokes, -- weight criminal crooks, recalled theirn behalf of some russian parties to quash the act in the
4:45 pm
united states. their work speaks for themselves. it is not a matter of whether devin nunes or the media is trying to put them out of business. it is themselves and their association and their illegality that is causing them and will hopefully put them out of business. >> sandra: they put themselves out there, fusion gps is run by a former journalist, which many of them are. this is who they say they are. who do you say is the real fusion gps? >> they are a con artist, basically. they are aiding and abetting criminals and, as they say, tell me who your friends are and i will tell you who you are. as far as the venezuelan paymasters, these are a group of people that are on the run. some of them, at their have been rated recently in venezuela. the people with the contracts, the company that contracted
4:46 pm
fusion gps, some are in jail, others are on the run. these are the kinds of clients that fusion gps has cultivated. i don't believe for a second pair of victims of anything. i am a victim. my family has been a victim. bill browder is a victim. i don't think they can say they are a victim. that is preposterous. in that op-ed they published in "the new york times" requesting the testimony to be published published, -- i should say that the whole world will certainly benefit from knowing exactly what they say during closed doors while they are testifying behind closed doors, but who will also benefit from knowing exactly what they have done for clients such as the venezuelan group that i just mentioned. and from russian clients that they have had and also from the dash you know, if they could divulge, how come they were working for the clinton campaign and russian interests at the same time?
4:47 pm
>> sandra: they conveniently left that out of the op-ed, didn't they? >> of course, of course. they never mention that that norther apologists. neither of these things are ventilated by this so-called die-hard bleeding liberals. at the end of the day, they have done those things, and there is a record of doing these things and being involved in these things. denying or skirting around the issue, it's not going to change the story. >> sandra: alek boyd, thank you for coming on and telling your story tonight. >> thank you so much, sandra. >> sandra: still to come, it is no secret academy award-winning actress meryl streep isn't a fan of the president, but now she is going after the first lady and his daughter ivanka. is that fair? dana loesch takes that one on next. with key nutrients

>> sandra: it is no secret that meryl streep is no fan of president trump, but now the hollywood icon is going after the women of the trump family, criticizing them for not speaking out as sexual harassment scandals and the #metoo movement comes through.
4:52 pm
she tweets, i don't want to hear from you, i want to hear about the silence of melania trump, i want to hear from her. she has so much that is valuable to say. so much does ivanka. i want her to speak now. saying, amazing that the only person in hollywood who do know that weinstein was a serial assaulter, under course she did did, -- does she have a leg to stand on? >> sandra, good to be with you. no, i don't think she does. and i want to remind all of your viewers as well that ivanka trump, when she was talking about those who prey on women and girls, she had harsher words to say about ray more than meryl streep has ever had to say about harvey weinstein or roman polanski or woody allen. meryl streep is at the apex of hollywood and it is ridiculous for anyone to think over her to
4:53 pm
expect anyone to think that she was completely ignorant of harvey weinstein's serial predation of women. in fact, i daresay that meryl streep, through her silence, and she has won many awards for many weinstein movies in which she start, including "the iron lady," the most recent, but her silence and all this has actually helped to marginalize in mine and probably reality's opinion, the victims of harvey weinstein. she, through her silence, has marginalized women. she has enabled predators like harvey weinstein in hollywood, because to meryl streep, her career was more important than the dignity of so many women in hollywood. >> sandra: how would you describe the status of that #metoo movement, saying that it has been diluted in some ways by politics, politicians throwing money at chasing down victims, bring them up against their opponent, i mean, what is happening with the movement
4:54 pm
today? >> i think you're exactly right on that. i also think it is just a deflection by people like streep who just want to make these jabs. as also seen certain feminists using it as a way to say, i was cat called one day, which is exactly like being brutally raped. the fear with the #metoo movement is that it is diluted, and that every day occurrences are being made to look as though everything is sexual assault, everything is sexual harassment, and it is an attack on the mend. then what ultimately happens is, it diminishes the real struggle and the real tragedy that actual victims of sexual violence have had to endure, which is unfortunate. and maybe, perhaps, that wasn't the original goal or the original intent, but if not careful, that could be the ultimate result. >> sandra: dana, this powerful message that the president shared, early this morning, he tweeted out this picture and said, "so beautiful. show this picture to the nfl players who still kneel."
4:55 pm
clearly showing engraving military family laying out their family member's gravesite. last words? >> that is what it is all about. and that is exactly right, that photo right there is why people honor and show honor when the anthem is played at these games. this is the one from america can come together and forget about political differences, and the only differences are the color of your jersey or the team that you are rooting for and that is eight. i think there are plenty of time social disagreement, but this isn't about -- when you do this when the anthem is playing, you are taking a jab at the people who fought for it. >> sandra: thank you for coming on tonight. two very powerful messages we wanted to share. thanks, dana. we'll be right back. i'm on the move all day long. and sometimes, i don't eat the way i should. so, i drink boost.
