‘The Five’ reacts to Trump’s challenge to Pelosi


DANA PERINO AND GREG GUTFELD. THIS IS “THE FIVE.” PRESIDENT TRUMP UNLOADING ON NANCY PELOSI, JOE BIDEN AND OTHERS DURING A FIERY SHOWDOWN WITH THE MEDIA. IF HE’S READY TO SEND A POLICY A LETTER DARING HER TO PUT DEMOCRATS ON RECORD BY HOLDING A VOTE.>>President Trump: THIS IS THE GREATEST WITCH HUNT IN THE HISTORY OF OUR COUNTRY. SO THE DEMOCRATS UNFORTUNATELY HAVE THE VOTE. IF THEY COULD DEVOTE VERY EASILY EVEN THOUGH MOST OF THEM, MANY OF THEM DON’T BELIEVE THEY SHOULD DO IT. AND THEY ARE REAL LEADERS, AOC PLUS THREE. THAT’S THE REAL LEADERS. I REALLY BELIEVE THAT THEY WILL PAY A TREMENDOUS PRICE OF THE POLLS.>>Jesse: TRUMP IS, THE PRESIDENT IS CALLING OUT WHAT HE SAYS A SERIOUS CORRUPTION FROM SLEEPY JOE AND HIS SON.>>President Trump: I WAS INVESTIGATED. WHAT I SAW BIDEN DO WITH HIS SON, HE IS PILLAGING THESE COUNTRIES AND HE’S HURTING US. WE WANT TO INVESTIGATE ANYTHING HAVING TO DO WITH CORRUPTION. I’M ONLY INTERESTED IN CORRUPTION. I DON’T CARE ABOUT POLITICS. I DON’T CARE ABOUT BIDEN’S POLITICS. I’VE WATCHED BIDEN OVER THE YEARS AND BIDEN IS NOT THE BRIGHTEST PERSON. I NEVER THOUGHT HE WAS GOING TO WIN, HE GOT TAKEN OFF OF THE GARBAGE HEAP BY OBAMA.>>Jesse: A MEMBER OF THE SQUAD IS THREATENING TO THROW TRUMP OFFICIALS IN PRISON.>>WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THEY DON’T COMPLY? THIS IS THE FIRST TIME WE’VE EVER HAD A SITUATION LIKE THIS SO WE ARE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT, NO JOKE. IS IT THE D.C. POLICE THAT GOES AGAINST THEM? NO.>>WE REMEMBERED DANA, SHE WAS THE ONE IN THE BEGINNING WHO SAID WE HAVE TO IMPEACH THE MOTHER F. AND NOW SHE WANTS TO LOCK HIM U UP.>>Dana: IF THAT’S NOT HOW ANY OF THIS WORKS. IT WAS INTERESTING TO SEE SOME OF THESE TOWN HALLS AND HEARING THEM GET A LITTLE BIT AHEAD OF THEMSELVES AND I IMAGINE THAT NANCY PELOSI, I WAS WANTING TO BE A VERY MEASURED AND THOUGHTFUL PERSON, SHE’S THE PRAYERFUL ONE, SHE HAS ALL THOSE DEMOCRATS OUT HERE SAYING THINGS LIKE, WE WANT TO — WHATEVER MAXINE WATERS SAID IT. I CAN’T REMEMBER THAT ONE. THE TRUMPS WHITE HOUSE IS TRYING TO CONVINCE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE THAT THE DEMOCRATS ARE DOING EVERYTHING POLITICAL AND, THAT’S WORKING IN THEIR FAVOR IN A LOT OF WAYS, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU HAVE THE CHAIRMAN OF THE INTELLIGENCE COMMITTEE ADAM SCHIFF GETTING FOR PINOCCHIO’S FROM “THE WASHINGTON POST” FOR NOT BEING FULLY FORTHCOMING ABOUT THE CONTACT WITH THE WHISTLE-BLOWER BEFORE THE COMPLAINT WAS FILED. I THINK THE WHITE HOUSE HAS SOME RESETTING TO DO AS WELL. THE MORE THEY TALK ABOUT THIS, THE REASON THEY AREN’T ABLE TO STAY ON THAT. THE STOCK MARKET IS HAVING A LITTLE BIT OF RESURGENCE. THE HOUSE ISN’T A QUESTION. THE SENATE, THERE IS VERY LITTLE CHANCE, LIKE MAYBE ZERO MINUSCULE CHANCE THAT THE REPUBLICANS WHATEVER JOIN THE DEMOCRATS IN THIS EFFORT. SO NOW IT’S IN THE COURT OF PUBLIC OPINION. IF I WERE IN THE WHITE HOUSE I WOULD RESET A LITTLE BIT OVER THE WEEKEND.>>Jesse: THAT SHOULD BE THE CORE TO THE STRATEGY. IT’S THE DO-NOTHING DEMOCRATS ON THE PARTISAN INSIDE WITCH HUNT. THE PRESIDENT ALSO LISTED SOME PINOCCHIO’S. LET’S LISTEN.>>President Trump: I HEARD ADAM SCHIFF GOT FOR PINOCCHIO’S. THAT’S GOOD, HE SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN THEM FOUR AND A HALF YEARS AGO. WHEN I SPEAK TO FOREIGN LEADERS I SPEAK IN AN APPROPRIATE WAY. IF YOU NOTICE, THEY DON’T MENTION THE CALL THAT I HAD WITH THE PRESIDENT OF UKRAINE. THEY DON’T MENTION THAT. BECAUSE IT WAS SO GOOD. THE ONLY TIME THEY MENTIONED IT WAS WHEN ADAM SCHIFF MADE IT UP. TALK ABOUT PINOCCHIO’S, THAT SHOULD GET TEN PINOCCHIO’S.>>THAT’S QUITE A FEW. ONE, DO YOU REGRET THAT ADAM SCHIFF WASN’T HONEST WHEN HE DIDN’T TELL EVERYBODY, EVEN PEOPLE IN HIS COMMITTEE THAT HE MET WITH THE WHISTLE-BLOWER BEFORE?>>Juan: HE DIDN’T, PEOPLE ON HIS STAFF DID. HE HAD EVERY OPPORTUNITY TO SAY, WHAT I MEANT TO SAY WAS THEY DIDN’T MEET WITH ME OR WITH THE PANEL OR THE COMMITTEE BUT THEY MET WITH COMMITTEE STAFF. SO I THINK HE WAS PROPERLY CHASTENED, I THINK YOU MADE A MISTAKE AND I THINK HE MADE A MISTAKE WITH THE PARITY. I UNDERSTAND IT WAS JUST SUMMARIZING WHAT THE PRESIDENT HAD TO SAY BUT IT WAS RIGHT THERE IN FRONT OF YOU. MY FEELING AS THOUGH IT’S VERY FUNNY TO HEAR THE PRESIDENT SAY, THIS IS ALL ABOUT THE CORRUPTION. I’M NOT CONCERNED ABOUT POLITICS. THE ONLY TIME I HEAR HIM SCREAMING ABOUT THE UKRAINIANS OR THE RUSSIANS OR ANYONE ELSE, IT’S JOE BIDEN OR HILLARY CLINTON. I’VE NOT HEARD ANYBODY ELSE CITED BY PRESIDENT TRUMP WITH REGARD TO CORRUPTION. SO I THINK THIS IS HIGHLY –>>Jesse: HE HASN’T MENTIONED CORRUPTION IN CHINA AND THE U.N., MEXICO — CENTRAL AMERICA, LOTS OF CORRUPT NATIONS OUT THERE. HOW DO YOU SEE THIS UNFOLDING?>>EVERYONE LIKES TO ACT LIKE PRESIDENT TRUMP IS UNHINGED BUT THAT WAS BRILLIANT POLITICAL MESSAGING. AND MORE AND MORE, JOE BIDEN FROM THE DEMOCRAT PERSPECTIVE LOOKS EXPENDABLE. HE IS DISPOSABLE. HE IS POLITICAL PICNIC CUTLERY, IF YOU WILL. THEY HATE TRUMP MORE THAN THEY LIKE JOE BIDEN CLEARLY. AND IT’S GOING TO MEAN A DRIP, DRIP, DROP, DROP, ABOUT HUNTER BIDEN COMING OUT OF THE UKRAINE. IT’S OBVIOUS INFLUENCE, FOR THE VICE PRESIDENT KNEW ABOUT IT OR NOT AND IT SMELLS LIKE PAY TO PLAY. THAT WILL BE THE MESSAGING. BIDEN ALREADY HAD AN REPUTATION FOR BEING UNDISCIPLINED AND LOUSY AT FUND-RAISING. HE STILL LOUSY AT FUND-RAISING AND HE’S STILL RUSTY AND UNFOCUSED AND HE REPRESENTS EVERYTHING THAT THE VERY LEFT-WING PARTY HATES. I THINK HE’S A GONER AND HE IS RARELY LEADING IN THE NATIONAL POLL.>>Jesse: THEY ARE CITING DEVASTATING CHARACTERIZATIONS OF THE FUND-RAISING HALL BY OTHER DEMOCRATS IN THE PARTY. HE’S ACTUALLY LOST MOMENTUM FROM THE FIRST AND SECOND QUARTER HERE, BEING OUTRAGED NOT ONLY BY SANDERS AND WARREN, BUT BY BOOTED JUDGE. AND THAT’S NOT GOOD.>>Greg: NO IT’S NOT, JESSE, NO IT’S NOT. IT WASN’T LONG AGO THAT THE DEMS CARED SO MUCH ABOUT CORRUPTION AND COLLUSION, BUT NOT WHEN TRUMP WANTS TO PURSUE CORRUPTION. SO I TELL THEM TO FP FAU. DO YOU KNOW THAT STANDS FOR? SILENCE A FALSE UKULELE. I HAVE A THEORY ON WHY TRUMP IS EXPRESSING ANGER. BECAUSE I BELIEVE HE DOES WANT JOE BIDEN, IT’S NOT A POLITICAL THING BUT A CORRUPTION THING. HE WANTS TO GO UP AGAINST JOE BIDEN BECAUSE JOE BIDEN IS SHAKY. HE’S LIKE AN IKEA DRESSER.>>THAT YOU PUT TOGETHER YOURSELF.>>Greg: EXACTLY. YOU ARE EITHER ON ONE SIDE OR THE OTHER AND I THINK THAT’S WHAT’S UPSETTING TRUMP, ONCE A PRIVATE CITIZEN, THERE WERE NO SIDES TO HIM. THERE WERE JUST PEOPLE YOU PAID. HE GAVE DONATIONS TO REPUBLICANS AND NOW HE HAS FOUND HIMSELF IN THIS TWO-SIDED PRISON. HE IS LIKE WATCHING PEOPLE CALL HIM POLITICAL WHO CREATED THE POLITICAL ENVIRONMENT WELL BEFORE HE GOT THERE AND WHILE HE IS THERE. SO THINK ABOUT THIS. A GUY WHO HAS NEVER BEEN POLITICAL WHO IS BASICALLY CEO FOR THE COUNTRY WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT. HE’S GOT FULL EMPLOYMENT, HE’S GOT PRISON REFORM AND DRUG REFORM, TRADE RESETS WHETHER YOU LIKE IT OR NOT. A LOT OF THIS STUFF DOESN’T LAND ON ONE SIDE, IT’S ON EVERY SIDE. YOU COULD BE A LEFTY AND LIKE PRISON REFORM. YOU COULD BE A RIGHTY AND, THE WARS, LIBERTARIANS LOVE THIS GUY. SO WHEN YOU SEE SOMEONE WHO IS ANGRY, HE’S ANGRY THAT THERE IS A SIDE GOING AGAINST HIM AND HE’S REALIZED THAT ACHIEVEMENT AND THAT THESE ACHIEVEMENTS ARE NO MATCH FOR THE POLITICAL PARTY MARRIED TO THE MEDIA. HE’S GETTING ALL THE STUFF DONE BUT NOBODY CARES.>>Juan: WHAT YOU JUST SAID WAS IT’S ALL ABOUT HIM. THERE IS NO PARTY, IT’S A PARTY OF TRUMP. IT WAS PEACE AND PROSPEROUS BEFORE BUT I WILL TELL YOU WHAT STRIKES ME, TODAY THE DEMOCRATS HAD THE VOTES TO IMPEACH HIM. TO ME THIS WAS AN IMPORTANT THING TO SAY BECAUSE HE’S SAYING, THAT’S WHAT’S GOING TO HAPPEN. AND MY SENSE IS, THE PERSUADABLE’S. HE WANTS TO WIN IN A COURT OF PUBLIC OPINION. WHICH HE MIGHT. THAT MIGHT BE WHY HE IS GOING AFTER ADAM SCHIFF. BUT, YOU HAVE A LITANY OF ACHIEVEMENTS AND YOU REALIZE THAT THIS TUG-OF-WAR IS ANYTHING BUT. AND THIS IS ALL POLITICAL. IF IT DOESN’T MATTER WHO IS IN CHARGE. IT HAPPENED TO OBAMA, IT HAPPENED TO CLINTON, AND HAVE BEEN TO REAGAN AND IT HAPPENED TO TRUMP.>>HE WANTS WHAT’S BEST FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
