tv   The O Reilly Factor  FOXNEWSW  January 23, 2017 5:00pm-6:01pm PST

5:00 pm
a good start here in our new studio. >> bill: "the o'reilly factor" is on tonight. >> is it your intention to always tell the truth from that podium? do you pledge never to knowingly say something that is not factual? >> bill: plenty of action at the white house tonight with the press challenging the trump administration. we'll take a look at that and the chaos over the weekend. >> i feel hitler and the streets. a mustache traded for a toupee, remained the cabinets. >> bill: crazy left people making their feelings known. what are they actually helping president trump? >> did you watch the inaugural address? >> actually, yeah. >> what i do think of the
5:01 pm
speech? >> i actually didn't watch the speech. i didn't see the speech part. >> bill: also, ahead, watters getting analysis of the inauguration from the folks. >> i see a lot of people who are enthused and hopeful for what is on the rise. >> bill: caution, you are about to enter the "no spin zone" ." "the factor" begins right now. ♪ >> bill: hi, i am bill o'reilly. thanks for watching us tonight. donald trump on the job! that is the subject of today's "talking points" ." donald trump signed three executive orders. number one, usa will lead to le the tpp. number two, there is a federal hiring freeze in place with the exception of the military. number three, the u.s. government will no longer pay any agency for performing
5:02 pm
abortions overseas. in addition, to the press briefing at the white house, brit hume will analyze that coming up. it was quite clear to me that president trump is going to be an activist. that means he is going to change a lot of things fast. congresspeople think they are going to get a lot of gym time, they are mistaken. mr. trump is also going to challenge the american press, which he loathe this. over the weekend, there was a silly controversy over who's inauguration crowd was bigger, trumps or obama's. a macho thing. with all due respect, who cares? if you are interested in that kind of thing, television ratings really tell the tale. donald trump's inauguration clocked in with the fifth highest tv viewership. ronald reagan's first. but today, for as a secretary sean spicer said that if you added all the people watching ot devices, the trump inauguration reach more folks than any other. most likely true. but again, not really important to the country.
5:03 pm
what is far more compelling is the press for, the price war between the president and national media outlets. talking points sees it clearly, many in the media had a vested interest in seeing president obama succeed. and those same exact people have a vested interest in seeing donald trump fail. he knows it. you know it. and i know it. the only reason to compare crowds at the inauguration, the only reason it is too embarrassed donald trump everyone knows washington, d.c., is the democratic stronghold. come on. now, there are two roads for the trump administration. they can rise above the national media and bring the message directly to the folks. or they can slug it out. >> i am saying, there is an obsession by the media to delegitimize this president. we are not going to sit around and let it happen.
5:04 pm
we are going to fight back, tooth and nail, every day, and twice on sunday. >> bill: so, a lot of time devoted to this press battle. back in the year 2000, presidential candidate george w. bush faced the same kind of media bias. >> you know something, bill, i have learned a pretty good lesson. that is never to complain about the press coverage. i don't like some of the coverage but i will tell you, the worst one was for me in politics was when i saw people say ugly things about my dad. i was a loyal son, he is the guy that gave me unconditional love and i was ready to launch after anyone that said -- >> bill: you did on a couple of occasions. >> i did. it's a lot different being the first son to become a president. >> bill: george w. bush did not engage the press. he usually ignored the slings and arrows. "talking points" believes that hurt mr. bush a bit, as his image suffered in the relentless criticism he endured.
5:05 pm
the iraq war should have been defined better by the bush administration, especially after the weapons of mass destruction were not found. george w. bush made a decision not to take on the press and they hammered him. there is no way donald trump is going to allow that to happen. whether the ongoing confrontation is good for the country, for you guys, remains to be seen. americans have to understand that there is an organized effort to get donald trump out of office. this is a largely unreported story. the woman's march over the weekend, a perfect example. that wasn't a spontaneous event. it was organized by far left groups, received millions of dollars from the liberal activist george soros. in fact, he has ties to 50 of the groups that attended the woman's marge this weekend. 50. according to the media research center, sources pumped $90 million into those groups. some of of the top of march
5:06 pm
organizers were members of the obama administration, hillary clinton's campaign, bernie sanders campaign. again, this was not some spontaneous uprising. a well-thought-out political spectacle. designed to denigrate the new president. if you watch the exposition, you heard some really crazy stuff. >> blacks are still in shackles and graves just for being black. slavery has been reinterpreted as the prison system inferential people who see melanin as animal skin. i am not as nasty as a swastika painted on a pride flag. and i'd didn't know devils could be resurrected, but i feel hitler in these streets. a mustache traded for a toupee. nazis rename to the. >> bill: that kind of
5:07 pm
extremism is simply nuts. yet, the trump administration responded. >> you have celebrities from the podium using profanity laced insults. you have a very prominent singer, who was with hundreds of millions of dollars, not going to a women's shelter to write a check, but instead, saying that she thought of "burning down the white house." >> are you talking about madonna? >> this is destructive. to be when i think she is talking about blowing up the white house, not burning it on. that would take too long. ms. conway is correct. it is destructive. not good for the country. "talking points" has no problem with people demonstrating against a politician or political party. that is time-honored parted but it didn't seen charges of fascism -- it is clear that the far left will not give president trump a chance and we'll try to get him out of office before his time is over. the crazy left has a powerful ally, the media. you won't hear them them reporting about how george geos
5:08 pm
is manipulating protests behind the scenes. you won't hear that. finally, a presidential inauguration is supposed to be a time of celebration for the country, not nonstop acrimony. donald trump is a confrontational guy. he is not going to sit around and take a lot of garbage. but by responding to obvious provocations, the trump administration veers away from the people's business. we have said it before. the trump administration will rise or fall on his policy accomplishments. if the economy ignites insecurity gets tighter, mr. trump will be a successful president. if that does not happen, then, it will become overwhelming. that that is the memo. next on the rundown, charles krauthammer will reply. then, often goals we will go as an opposing point of view. then, later, brit hume has some thoughts. and "the factor" is coming right back.

♪ >> bill: joining me and i with our story, donald trump and washington. did i miss anything about the first day, charles? >> i think there is something about the march that is i think even more significant, what the media are doing. what they are doing now, and i don't think this is a concerted effort, this is not orchestrated, this is simply the media being overwhelmingly liberal, they think the same way. but what they are doing is to try to call this the tea party of the left. they have been kicking themselves since 2009, 2010, for missing the tea party phenomeno phenomenon, which became enormously important in the by elections, the elections of 2010, and the laws of the house and the senate by the democrats
5:13 pm
over time. they ridiculed the tea party. they condescended to it. they ignored it. what they tried to do is to look for that on the left and they started with occupy wall street. remember, "the new york times" own ombudsman said that they were promoting the cause, pretending it was a real movement, it was nothing of the sword. it was spoiled, unemployed, overeducated college students who blew away with the first wins of winter disappeared. this, they see, the march of saturday, they look at the headlines, "tea party, left-wing tea party." can they revive it? the fact is, they are not. they are overestimating. they are going to promote it and they are going to fail. >> bill: what about the soros factor? when you have this kind of billionaire behind 50 of the groups that sponsored the march
5:14 pm
and donating, according to reports, $90 million to those groups, that seems to be a little frightening when there is one guy and his crew pushing this as a democratic movement, when it really is a contrived movement, is that not? >> you can put all the money you want into all the organizations you want. but the half a million people or so who showed up in washington were not coming because of the waiving of money or because of a bunch of groups funding, flow, all groups have for funding. the conservative groups, liberal ar left groups become a big deal. that was real people showing up. my question to those real people was, where the hill were you on election day? >> bill: don't you feel they showed up because they were told to show up?
5:15 pm
look, if you look at the totalitarian governments -- co->> who tells anybody to show up? >> bill: these people live -- >> what is the threat, why do they have to go? >> bill: they don't have to go to a negative, they have to go to be with her brothers and sisters and to show their solidarity and that they are good people and fight the fascist racists. it is a whip up. if you study history, all the totalitarian regimes were fueled with pups, okay, and people turned out to the streets. where the spontaneous? no. they were well organized and the target is trump to get them up before the four years is over. >> look, if you are talking about the fascists and the '20s end '30s, they actually took over governments, essentially by force. we are not talking about that. when you are talking about
5:16 pm
people showing up, being whipped up, you are saying free people read the internet, they decide they sympathize with this idea or group, they get on a train, they get in a car, they cross country, they go to a demonstration. how is that different from the march on washington in 1963? where they wept up? yes, by a civil rights movement. i don't think there is a movement here. >> bill: here's how it is different. the civil rights movement in the '60s and all of the demonstrations that took place were against injustice. all right? you can see it. it was there. all right? the same thing with vietnam. a a lot of people felt the world was not being waged properly, it was unjust, the working class soldiers were being exploited and on and on. there is no injustice here. this is a perception, a perception of fascism and racism and bigotry. all right? there is no proof. you can't provide it. this is a contrived
5:17 pm
demonstration, charles. it is not based on reality as the '60s were. go. >> i mean, you are talking about perceptions here. are you aware of how many communist groups there were for the march on washington? how many there were in the vietnam movement? you know all of these, a lot of them were funded by unsavory sorts. look, what they are protesting, to the extent that they actually have an ideology, and there were all kinds of groups with a lot of weird causes in there, it was more amusing to me than frightening, what they are protesting, if anything, is donald trump and the threat they perceive coming from him. well, we have a democracy. you've settled out at the ballot box. but they have every right to express themselves. and you may judge -- you may judge it. >> bill: i think there something more nefarious going by on behind the scenes then you do. >> oh, come on.
5:18 pm
so, you are afraid of these women? >> bill: i'm not afraid of anybody. >> yes, you are. >> bill: there is a lot of things behind the scenes that is not going to be reported by anybody, there's a lot of manipulation going on, a lot of propaganda going on, a lot of bad things going on, that people should know about. that is my job to tell them. >> i would recommend less paranoia, less conspiracy, and a little relaxation. it will be okay. it was just a demonstration. they are not going to take over the white house. i will give you my personal guarantee. >> bill: tomorrow's "talking points" will be delivered with me in a hat. >> i'll prescribe the valium. you take it. >> bill: never take it. no. no drugs for me. clearheaded at all times. charles krauthammer. directly ahead, dr. austan goolsbee will weigh in on how the trump administration is dealing with the democrats on
5:19 pm
capitol hill. then, there was this today. >> is it your intention to always tell the truth from that podium? >> bill: brit hume will opine whether or not that question was out of line. up ahead. your whole day stops.

♪ >> bill: "impact segment" tonight, white house press secretary sean spicer said the trump administration wants to work with democrats in congress. but is that possible? joining us now from chicago, dr. austen goolsby. before we get to that, you heard charles krauthammer and i kicking it around. i think it is a little more serious than the doctor does come as far as mobilizing people to undermine the new administration. what say you? >> you know, i thought dr. krauthammer was kind of
5:23 pm
correct. you sounded like you were getting a little unhinged or something. >> bill: unhinged? 's can you point to a phrase tht signified my unhinged nose? >> i will just say this. there were some thousand plus people demonstrating in fairbanks, alaska, where it was 18 below zero. that wasn't a conspiracy espoused by george soros or others. it was the largest demonstratio demonstration -- in american history. >> bill: that wasn't the boston tea party, okay? that was these people in fairbanks got a little message on their computers, meet here with your fellow social -- >> bill, it was the biggest demonstration in american history around the country. so, yes, you will find some people have weird views. but overall, it was pretty significant. that is why donald trump was so insecure about it. >> bill: this was directed, it
5:24 pm
was not a spontaneous. we can prove that. >> was the tea party demonstration of tax day 2009? >> bill: it was suggested, not directed. there was a big money behind -- >> okay. this was some ten times bigger than those demonstrations. >> bill: $90 million is a lot of money, going to those groups who sponsor the demonstration. nothing like that took place of the tea party. do you believe that the trump administration is capable or even wants to work with democrats in congress? >> i don't know that they are capable or want to. and you know, in a way, it kind of comes back to these demonstrations. if you won an election narrowly, there is one approach, which is the jfk approach, which is, he wins a narrow election and he wins the electoral college by
5:25 pm
more than donald trump won. but he makes his inaugural address one which is, which says, hey, look, i know a lot of you voted for the other guy but i'm going to be your president, too, give me a chance. he puts republicans in prominent positions in his cabinet and he starts by doing policies that the wide consensus of the country can agree on. if donald trump had done that, if donald trump had, and his inaugural address even, said, i don't a lot if you voted against me, i didn't get the majority of the vote, but i'm going to prove you wrong. give me a chance, i think these demonstrations would have been half the size that they were. >> bill: whatever he says, he is a racist and a fascist. you heard ashley judd, the great political scientist. okay. you might be right on trump and his administration is saying, look, you know what, we got our majority in the senate, we got the majority in the house, and we have our a really fervent supporters are voted for us. we don't need chuck schumer and
5:26 pm
his merry men. >> that's kind of what it feels like. >> bill: we kind of you to say we need them to be whatever. that is possible. but if the economy starts to surge and you are an economist, that is what you helped president obama with. if the tax cuts and the regulations going down stimulaty quickly, democrats will be in a tight spot. >> yes, i guess i would say, for sure, if they don't stimulate the economy, if we keep putting up job numbers like the ones we put up for the last seven years, or we do worse than that, then, i think that donald trump will be in a tough spot. >> bill: he's got to deliver. >> i agree. >> bill: border security and isa isis security. no doubt. if he doesn't, there will be more demonstrations orchestrated by george soros, who is not
5:27 pm
going to run out of money. >> and there is a reason why he has got the lowest approval rating of any incoming president, i think it is because he is going with "i won about no matter how close it is, i'm charging ahead, i don't need you guys." i think he is going to overstep. you should warn him. >> bill: that reminds me of a man named barack obama. >> no, barack obama won begged, as did ronald reagan. >> bill: my way or the highway. >> they did kind of do that. >> bill: i tried to persuade you. it is futile but i try to persuade you. persuasion is good. we appreciate it. plenty more as "the factor" moves along this evening. brit hume has some thoughts on the first press conference today. it was a heated exchange. we'll show you that. watters talking to the folks about the inauguration. >> what would you have like to see president trump say? >> what is the actually want to do?

5:32 pm
didn't have youtube, facebook, or the internet. 41 million people watched it. 41 million watched his. let's just take the nielsen ratings, 31 million, and add it to cnn. 16.9 million. that's a little higher. >> bill: that was a reference to streaming onto cnn or something. but spicer, by bringing in the internet, seems to have gotten the better of that exchange. joining us now from florida, brit hume. i thought he won that round. what to say you? >> i would say he got himself, to some extent come out from under what appeared too many come unfairly, to be a bold claim that the crowd on hand in washington washing in person was the biggest ever. and you can't know these things for sure because you just can't. it certainly didn't appear that was true. what he said on saturday, and a statement, in which he denounced
5:33 pm
the press for refusing to acknowledge that i was the biggest crowd ever, his statement was ambiguous in the in the sense that he went to say the audience worldwide. once you mention that, you can drag and, as he did today and that answer, the internet streaming and youtube and who knows what else, at which point, you are into an area which is just -- >> bill: you can to validate it. >> it is unverifiable. but it was denounced come what he said the other day was denounced by many people in the media as a lie, a war that is slung around with abandon these days. i think that is regrettable and unprofessional. >> bill: do you consider it a lie? >> no, i consider it to be an unverifiable claim, a dubious claim, perhaps. but to call it a lie implies a level of -- first of all, you have to know for certain other person knew it was false, and had the intent to mislead. and i think that is unprovable. therefore, we should resist
5:34 pm
using who should be trying to be neutral in our observations. >> bill: for story, as i said in the "talking points" memo, who cares, he doesn't have anything to do with anyone's life or improving the country. but i believe that it was put up there to show that barack obama was more popular than donald trump. i think that's why they did it. >> well, perhaps. trump is in the habit of making extravagant claims. most of them are matters of opinion. and while you made out to or whatever, you kind of let them go because -- >> bill: everyone knows that he delves into hyperbole, who cares? why is it a front-page story? let's go into the important stuff. >> well, i completely agree, bill. look at saturday as an example. he goes to the cia, which is kind of a surprise, you wouldn't have thought after that his agreements with certain
5:35 pm
intelligence officials and seemingly with the intelligence community as a whole, that that would be his first stop on his first day as president. but it was. he got a hugely friendly reception out there. ovations and cheering efforts or marks. he talked about his support for the intelligence agents are not got a big response. then, he veered off into the discussion himself of the estimates of the crowd size and the next thing you know, he was talking about the number of times he had been on "time magazine"'s cover. i can for the life of me figure out why he did that. there is nothing really harmful about it. but it seems to me, the next thing you know, you are delving into this issue, you make them newsworthy. his press secretary later made this denunciation of the smitty and take questions. i don't think sean spicer was long, but an unverifiable claim, why make it? crowd size of an inauguration is something the world will little note nor long remember until perhaps the next inauguration. there is no reason for him to
5:36 pm
spend any of his political capital or his press secretary's credibility on the issue. just move on. now, he is doing all of these things they ought to be what the focus is on and what he would want the focus to be on, it seems to me. >> bill: he wants to win. donald trump wants to win, whether it is the inauguration crowd or the television ratings. he wants to win. that is what motivates him. brit hume, everybody. when we come back, some rapid-fire segment. as the press essentially dishonest in america? watters talking to folks about the inauguration. and a woman flown off the plane for screaming at a fellow passenger about politics. right back. special edition? because, actually there's 5. aaaahh!! ooohh!! uh! holy mackerel. wow. nice. strength and style. which one's your favorite?

>> announcer: "the o'reilly factor," the number one cable news show for 16 years and counting. >> bill: thanks for staying with us. i'm bill o'reilly. "personal story"'s segment. as the american press essentially dishonest? a compelling question. to answer, mary anne marsh and katie pavlich in washington. what i noticed, katie, on the coverage of the women's march, there wasn't a lot of criticism by the press, and some really ugly things were said. horrible things, inappropriate things. yet, i didn't see any criticism
5:41 pm
of that. i just think, you know what, that had been said by a conservative individual, it would have been page one in every newspaper across the coun. am i wrong? >> you are not wrong. you have madonna saying that she thought i whole lot about blowing up the white house and down the secret service is investigating her. i haven't seen a whole lot of coverage about that in the mainstream media. if that was said about another president with a different political party next to their name, it would be front-page news and it should be, quite frankly. >> bill: yet, but i don't think that is a serious investigation. i don't think miss madonna is going to be put in cuffs. and i don't know if miss madonna knows -- >> they are knocking on her door and asking some questions, for sure. >> bill: oh, come on. what they want to know where she bought the hat. >> she did in the hat, bill. she noted that it with all of her knitting friends. >> bill: i believe you are both honest individuals. mary anne, you have to understand, that when stuff like that is said, and there isn't
5:42 pm
any press coverage, much press coverage of it at all, it is all, oh, look how many people showed up, they want their rights, they want to be heard, there is no focus on the hate. that is not honest reporting, mary anne. >> i think a lot of outlets, media outlets, tv outlets in particular, ran clubs like the one we just watched. they did good coverage. >> bill: i didn't see it. >> did they get coverage to the extent that you wanted to see? i think the crowd size with wal and we think that became the story, especially because it was the day after the inauguration. they were careful. there was not one arrest. there were 600 of them around the world. i think that dominated the coverage. >> bill: but that is not with the press is in business to do. the press is in business to report what happens. kd. >> bill, here's a good example. on friday, hundreds of thousands of pro-life americans will come to washington, d.c., from all over the place and march in the march for life. that happens every year. and we don't hear about it.
5:43 pm
that is another form of the media not being dishonest. they have a narrative they like to promote, they look for conclusions, they look for the facts which is exactly what we saw over the weekend with the tweet about the mlk bus bust bg removed when it wasn't removed from the white house. so, we have seen this for decades, for years, quite frankly. this is why the white house is actually changing the way that coverage is seen by opening up the briefings to different reporters, promoting different kinds of media, by promoting conservative media, which at least is honest about where they are coming from. >> bill: look, mary anne, what if there was a giant pro rally and in that rally, a very famous person got up and said, "i want to blow up the white house" and barack obama was still president, and because of all the executive
5:44 pm
orders that president obama signed, i believe that he is hitler -terian. he thought it happened on a tea party rally, you know, mary anne, what would have taken place. >> you are right. but i think we saw a lot of that during the last election. i think the real point here, bill, can the media do better? yes, of course. i think standards have dropped unfortunately. you have so many media outlets out there now that don't practice any standards or very little or come from a very one-sided viewpoint. that is art everybody. that is why we have debates about faking news, we have debates about facts, which is even more troubling. i think when you look at some of the things that are come up in the last few days, the mlk bust was an error of omission. the reporter apologized. >> bill: mary anne. >> it was an error -- hold on, guys. it was an error of omission. the reporter apologized. >> bill: it was made by a man. you have to look deeper.
5:45 pm
it was made by a man in a publication that despises donald trump. >> bill, you can't have that standard and the not hold donald trump and sean spicer to the standard of a verse of co-mission, they committed on saturday. at the cia, you can't have it both ways. >> bill: yes, i can. we are talking about one issue, and the issue is, is the media essentially dishonest. and the answer -- >> they need to hold everyone accountable. >> bill: the answer is, yes, it is. ladies, thank you. watters on deck. he talked to the folks about what they took away from the inauguration weekend. watters is next. or no sugar at all, smaller portion sizes, clear calorie labels, and signs reminding everyone to think balance before
