The Five

Northeast digs out from first snowstorm of 2014

This is a rush transcript from "The Five," January 3, 2014. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

DANA PERINO, CO-HOST: Hello, everyone. I'm Dana Perino, along with Kimberly Guilfoyle, Bob Beckel, Greg Gutfeld, and Eric Bolling is outside today, reporting from the snowy, bitter cold streets in Manhattan.

It's 5 o'clock in New York City -- and this is "The Five."

This is a FOX News weather alert. This is a FOX News weather alert.

The big (INAUDIBLE) the first winter storm of 2014 dumped as much as two feet of snow, crippling travel and causing at least 11 deaths. A state of emergency has been declared in New York and New Jersey. And we're going to get an update on the storm's path from Janice Dean at the weather center in a minute, and then, we're going to talk with Molly Line. She is in South Boston.

But first we're going to Eric Bolling, outside our building, to show you the scene in New York City right now.

Eric, is it a little chilly out there?

ERIC BOLLING, CO-HOST: My goodness, Dana. It's 14 degrees on the thermometer right over there. You guys picked the right sticks. I drew the short one. It's cold out there.

But I've got some friends here, check it out, from South Lake, Texas, right? The Davidsons?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: That's right. The Davidsons from South Lake, Texas. I'll tell you, I will never trust a seven-day forecast again.

BOLLING: Were you guys stuck here? Are you supposed to be here? What's it like? I mean, you are freezing, right?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Well, we're making the best of some of the good -- we came up to visit some colleges.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I've wearing five layers of clothes right now and I still can't feel my coat. I've never seen anything like it, but I'm enjoying New York City.

BOLLING: These guys watch "The Five", too. Even the young guys over where.

Now, we have Chattanooga, Tennessee, represented. Can the Chattanooga railroad run in this?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: No way. We don't have this kind of weather.

BOLLING: Were you expecting this kind of temperature?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I never (INAUDIBLE), but not this cold.

BOLLING: Are you stuck here?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: No. We leave out on Sunday.

BOLLING: Maybe, maybe you do. And now, we have Dallas, Texas, represented, too. Another Texas people. What do you think of the cold?

UNIDENTIFIED GIRL: It is freezing and I'm wearing five layers on my toes and I had to go back to the hotel to change my shoes.

BOLLING: And you needed more because it was still cold.

Have you ever seen 14 degrees before?

UNIDENTIFIED GIRL: Not in Dallas. The most I've seen in Dallas is probably an inch.

BOLLING: What about you, mom?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: This is very cold for us. It doesn't get this cold in Dallas. And it is a frigid cold for sure. It is too windy.

BOLLING: Before we go, I've got to show Beckel. Can you show Beckel this? It says no liberals. No L, right?

BOB BECKEL, CO-HOST: Very funny. It's very good. I hope you guys freeze, OK?

BOLLING: Actually that means Noel, the season, get it?

BECKEL: I got it.

BOLLING: These guys are bearing the cold. It is cold out here, guys.

GREG GUTFELD, CO-HOST: Hey, Eric, is there anybody else out there you can ask how cold it is?

BOLLING: Hey, guys, can you swing it around? Is it cold out here?


PERINO: Eric, I have a question.

BOLLING: Yes. What do you got, Dana?

PERINO: How cold is it, Eric?

BOLLING: Cold, Dana.

BECKEL: Eric, go back to the lady from Tennessee, will you? I'll convince that's an English accent.

BOLLING: Bob wants to know about your accent.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: What about my accent?

BECKEL: You're right. I'm sorry. I thought it sounded British when I first heard it.


BOLLING: Bob thought you were British.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: No. This is good old Southern accent.

BECKEL: I see. OK. I got it.

PERINO: Bob said she had an English accent. I win the price because I said, no, that's a Southern accent.

BOLLING: That was the Southern accent.

GUTFELD: They sound so much alike.

PERINO: Kimberly, she's got one.

KIMBERLY GUILFOYLE, CO-HOST: Yes, just real quick, what else are they going to do with their time from now until Sunday since the weather is going to be so cold?

BOLLING: OK. Very quickly, Kimberly wants to know what you are doing between now and the next couple of days. You can stay inside or go out.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: We are trying to head home. We got show tickets for tonight. So we're going to go.

BOLLING: It is warm inside. What are you doing?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Both out all day tomorrow and in tonight.

BOLLING: Good for you.

You guys are going to go outside, or you can stay in nice and warm?

UNIDENTIFIED GIRL: We are going to stay in tonight and then my mom is driving the -- freight train so we are going out. So, we're going to go outside all day tomorrow.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Statue of Liberty tomorrow. Hopefully, we're going out tomorrow.

BOLLING: I tell you what I'm going to do. I'm going to run inside and meet you inside after you talk to Janice Dean and Molly Line for three minutes. Guys, great stuff.

BECKEL: That's the fastest six minutes in television?

GUILFOYLE: It's the most frozen host.

BOLLING: I have to go. We'll talk to you later. Come on.

PERINO: Thank you. Eric. We'll see you back here in just a minute.

Let's go now to meteorologist Janice Dean at the FOX Weather Center.

Janice, just give us an update.

JANICE DEAN, FOX NEWS SENIOR METEOROLOGIST: He's so charming outside, isn't he?

Let's look at the video we got yesterday because we received over two feet of snow in Massachusetts. In Central Park, we got six inches.

Hats off to the local meteorologist because I think they really got this one right. Sometimes we really hear it when we get the forecast wrong but the snow totals were right on and the temperatures were really frigid. We had wind-chills below zero overnight, blizzard conditions with winds gusting from 35 miles per hour from Long Island to coastal Maine. We had school cancellations in the major cities and, you know, things are digging out right now but we have another snowstorm on the way that we're going to continue to track.

And I want to make mention that temperatures in the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest are frigid. We could have one of the coldest NFL games at Green Bay on Sunday. The temperature will be around minus five. So, we will continue to monitor that. Folks are going to go out to Green Bay.

Minus five, but with the wind chill, it's going to feel like minus 25, minus 30. So it could go down as one of the top five coldest NFL games, the coldest back in 1967, I think, when it was minus 13 in Green Bay.

But here is our next storm system real quick. Blizzard for the Northern Plains, another arctic blast, colder than the last one. So, the coldest air of the season we have not seen yet. It is coming, if you can believe it. We could see historic temperatures in Chicago, down toward St. Louis and Minneapolis, with temperatures, daytime temperatures in the minus teens on Monday and Tuesday.

So, a lot of winter to get through, Dana. Back to you.

PERINO: All right. Bob has a question and then I'm going to get to ask a question.


BECKEL: Janice, here's my question. You know, you said people -- that is very funny. People jump on you guys when you make the wrong forecast. Here is the problem. When you guys say there is a 50/50 chance of rain, you can't miss.

DEAN: Yes, I don't, I don't -- we don't do that any more. The 50/50 chance?

BECKEL: OK, good. I wanted to point that out.

DEAN: Well, thank you. Thank you for pointing that out and maybe I'll use that in my future forecast.

BECKEL: OK, good. All right.

PERINO: I have one last question, Janet. It's this -- winter storms, they just to just be named by a number. So, like the blizzard of '84.

Why do we have names for them? This is Hercules.

DEAN: We don't -- here at FOX News Center, we don't name the storms. There is only one news organization which will go unmentioned that named this storm.

PERINO: Oh, I didn't know that.

DEAN: Yes. And I guess other media outlets are kind of catching on. It is sort of an advertising ploy, I think. And it's working obviously.

PERINO: I admire FOX for doing it because I think it's ridiculous.

DEAN: We don't. We don't follow that.

PERINO: OK. Thank you, Janice.

Let's now go to FOX's Molly Line in Quincy, Massachusetts, where it was 20 below this morning -- Molly.

BECKEL: She's frozen. She can't speak.

PERINO: She's freezing.

GUILFOYLE: She's jumping jack.

PERINO: We can't hear molly. But it sounds like she's saying it is very cold and there was a lot of snow or something.

GUILFOYLE: It is the sign language.


BECKEL: That's symbolic, could apply for.

PERINO: OK. Will you guys let me know if we get Molly back?

GUILFOYLE: Can I tell you something about Green Bay?


GUILFOYLE: So, Greta loves Green Bay Packers, right? The Pack is back. And I love the Niners. So, she's like, look, I'm worried about the Niners, I'm very worried about Green Bay because of the weather and I think that is the bet to take. They are used to playing it in. My poor Niners are not.

And I had a weird dream about Steve Young last night.


GUILFOYLE: Former quarterback.

PERINO: I had a dream about Andy Libby (ph), but I don't think it was the same.

GUILFOYLE: Did it involve cats?


BECKEL: What was that game -- remember, do they call the Ice Bowl?

BOLLING: The Frozen Tundra.

Can I just be honest with you? I've been to Green Bay, it's cold. There is nothing colder than Soldier Field in Chicago. That is the coldest, right on the lake, lake in Michigan, picks up all those Canadian cold air and it is the coldest place on the planet, I think.

GUTFELD: Can I just bring this into the serious realm here?

GUILFOYLE: Oh, please?

GUTFELD: As you know, I'm a big fan of, the liberal blog, and I just read that they are going to be doing a think piece on why does snow have to be white. As I'm 1/16th Hispanic, winter angers me.

GUILFOYLE: Are you really?

GUTFELD: I feel that I'm hit hardest by the snow.

And another question about the weather -- why do we say black ice is scarier than the other kinds of ice? What is wrong with our country?

GUILFOYLE: Is this our A-block?

GUTFELD: Yes, it is. Take a look at the mirror, Kimberly, and ask yourself why do you hate black ice?

GUILFOYLE: I don't know. I'm Puerto Rican, I love all colors of ice.

BECKEL: There's a reason that we're not in the weather business on this show.

GUTFELD: I know.

PERINO: OK, I have one thing that would be helpful to viewers rather than listening to our nonsense tips. And that is storm survival tips from the Red Cross.

OK. Here are the things you need to do. You need to listen to NOAA weather radio. You need to bring in all pets, Greg, that includes the ferrets.

Fill up your vehicle with gas. So, Greg, for your big wheel, make sure you got gas for that. You have to put together a supply kit like water and food and things like that, and you keep the thermostat at the same temperature. And this one is very helpful tip, you avoid driving, which I think is very helpful.

Now, let me ask you, Eric, if you were to put together an emergency supply kit for a winter storm like this, what would you want to have in that kit?

GUILFOYLE: I know what he would have put it.

BOLLING: What, Kimberly? Don't be mean.

GUILFOYLE: No, no, just be realistic.

BOLLING: Like you were going to say vodka or something like that.

GUILFOYLE: I was going to say vodka, for sure.



PERINO: I can bail you out, you know how I can bail you out?

BOLLING: Please do.

PERINO: Because Molly Line is available now in Quincy, Massachusetts.

Molly, I'm going to read this again. It was 20 below zero this morning.

Molly, take it away.

MOLLY LINE, FOX NEWS CORRESPONDENT: Absolutely freezing. It is till frigidly cold right now. The sun is down. It's dark, beautiful, Christmas look here in Quincy Center. Behind me the cars creeping by.

Tough commute still out there this evening. Thankfully, a lot of people decided to skip heading into work today. The governor, of course, canceling every -- the government today closing down and asking also private businesses to hold their employees home as well.

And part of that is because the temperatures have been so frigidly cold. Tonight, it's expected to get down to negative one. The wind- chill, as you mentioned, even lower than that in those negative double- digits.

But the one good benefit of this low temperature is the snow. The snow is super fluffy. It just disappears when you throw it up in the air and that's making it easier to handle, which is good thing especially when you have nearly two feet of snow in the communities north of Massachusetts.

And as Janice was saying, we are expecting another cold blast next week, the bright side for this weekend. Tomorrow is expected to get up to 20s and on Sunday in the 40s. So, we should see some of this melt before we get hit with the next field of cold temperatures.

Back to you.

PERINO: All right. Thanks, Molly. We're glad we could get you here.

Bob, we have to go.

BECKEL: I was going to ask, why keep the temperature the same thing in that --

PERINO: For the survival tips? I'll tell you on the break.

Because ahead on "The Five", there's interesting information about the people rescued from the ship stuck in the Antarctica and what the media isn't telling you, but we're going to tell you.

And later, it's the first Facebook Friday of 2014. If you send us your questions now at, we're going to answer them.

We'll be right back.



GUTFELD: You can't dance to that, can you, K.G.?

GUILFOYLE: You saw my foot.


I have a two part story to tell. Part one, a ship on its way to Antarctica to study disappearing ice due to global warming got trapped in the ice.

Part two, ha-ha, ha-ha. According to "The Huffington Post", the ship needed three ice breakers to rescue it and they all failed. So, it sat there like Al Gore wedged in a man hole.

Thankfully, all were rescued but "The Huff Po", like others, neglected to say that the scientists were there to study global warming. Instead, you got this stuff.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Before their ship got stuck in the ice in the middle of a blizzard, the explorers were on a tour of historic sites in Antarctica. Now, it's simply a rescue mission.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: As the Australian maritime experts ponder what next, the crew of the ship say they have enough food and provisions, so scientists keep busy with research, and passengers keep the world up to date.


GUTFELD: So why no mention of the mission? Because it doesn't fit their story.

But no worries, the stuck ship still proves global warming. Expedition leader Chris Turney says they were trapped in old ice from an iceberg that broke off ages again.

So, while less ice proves global warming, more ice does too. What a great business.

Look, some say Antarctic ice is disappearing, but other say it's grown to a new record two years in a row, with satellite data from 1992- 2008 showing in that gain. So, who's right?

I'm no scientist, although I tell people that in bars. But I know not to trust those who make money off panic, be it environmental or otherwise. The same people who scream global cooling, now scream warming, and shout heathen when you point to new cooling data.

The missing polar bears are now back, so let's bring up vanishing ice which is no longer vanishing.

So, unlike that vessel stuck in the ice, I'm thinking this climate change shift has sailed. And you can blame it on weather, but on a strident ideology that has put real science on ice for decades to come.

So, K.G., I watched you absorb that monologue.

GUILFOYLE: I thought it was riveting.

GUTFELD: Either that, or you're asleep.


GUTFELD: Everybody falls asleep when we talk about global warming.

Are you surprised that the media ignores that story? That part --

GUILFOYLE: But bias this is. It's so obvious. This is a -- the whole point of the expedition was they were going to go to Antarctica and they were going to study global warming, what a disaster it is and instead, they got trapped and then they get another rescue boat, the Chinese, trapped. You might like that, Bob.

And so, this is the point of the story.


GUILFOYLE: You're going there to study something, yet you are frozen and trapped in ice. What does that tell you?

It also tells me that this was a 35-year record high in 2013 for Antarctic sea ice, just so you know.


Is it amazing, Bob, that we all have to read up about Antarctic sea ice?

GUILFOYLE: Who would have thought?

BECKEL: I read about it every day.

Listen, I know this is a funny story and you guys who were --

GUTFELD: I'm glad they are safe. I'm going to say I'm glad they're safe, Bob.

BECKEL: I won't use a word to get you upset in describing people like who are out of -- nonscientific.

GUTFELD: But it is science.

BECKEL: Wait a minute, wait, wait. You are looking at one day or one week in the course of millions of years, right? And there is no doubt the overwhelming number of scientists believe the globe is getting warmer. I mean, it's just as simple as that.

Now, OK, excuse me. Excuse me, Einstein. You tell me.

BOLLING: You just refuted your own argument in the same sentence.

BECKEL: What did I say?

BOLLING: You say, well, you look at one day, but then you don't realize, over the last couple of years, we're looking at a lot of scientists who believe it is warming even though the earth has been around for literally millions upon millions of years.

BECKEL: No, this is one week in a million years.

BOLLING: So, instead, you want to take the last, I don't know, 15 years or so? Instead of --

BECKEL: No, I don't want to take the last 15 years.

BOLLING: How about the last 10,000 years?

BECKEL: OK. Let me just ask you this -- why is it that most -- and I put the emphasis on most -- scientists believe there is global warming and you don't.

BOLLING: Because here's why -- because if most scientists said it is normal fluctuations in temperature, there and then, there's no story there and no reason for them to get billions upon billions of dollars to fund their research projects.

BECKEL: So you think this is all a scam?

BOLLING: Absolutely. All this little expeditions that those beautiful ships that are well-stocked, and they're not worried, and their vacation is up in Antarctic, that's all this is. This is funding their lifestyle and their laboratory experiments.

GUTFELD: The problem with doing these stories, we always get back to Bob talking about this incredible agreement among scientists. That was based on a grad study in which they give questionnaire to people, and the question was so generic, do you believe there is fluctuation.

It wasn't a scientific study, it was a poll. And there's so many - - by the way, I call myself a luke-warmer, I think there might be a slight increase which is beneficial to society that saves lives. I don't know how it will be in the long-term. I think it's valuable to look at.

But I don't think people, Dana, people should call people names over this. I think it's important that --

PERINO: Also, I don't know why they would hide -- if the media has willful negligence when it comes to reporting what the research was? So, can we do a little role-playing?


PERINO: You're an editor and I'm a journalist and I bring you this story, says, hi, I've got this story, Mr. Editor, and it's about these researchers in Antarctica and they got stuck. And you say, OK, we believe -- OK, what were they researching? What were they studying? And I say, oh.

So, in journalism school, you're taught like, you have to put the hope of detail into the lead of the paragraph, because otherwise, there's not -- it doesn't make sense. And nobody was wondering what they were doing down there.


PERINO: They probably just assumed they were doing global warming.

GUTFELD: That wasn't fun role playing.

GUILFOYLE: That was sort of one-sided role playing.

BECKEL: What happens now --


GUILFOYLE: Eww, that's gross.

GUTFELD: I deliver pizza in the snow. All right.

PERINO: I don't get it.

GUTFELD: No, I don't get it either. Anyway, I'm just happy they were saved by helicopters --


BECKEL: And that's adding to the global warming, the helicopters.

GUTFELD: You're right, the helicopters --

PERINO: Oh, no, but you need to hear their answer? Their answer to that is that they are going to be planting trees elsewhere so they can off-set their carbon footprint from the rescue of the helicopter.

BECKEL: You don't believe in carbon footprint?

GUILFOYLE: What a joke.

BECKEL: What a joke?


PERINO: Carbon footprint is a fact. You can actually measure a carbon footprint.

GUTFELD: It's used to make money.

GUILFOYLE: You know what? They're hurting science, because they are just so busy chasing what's P.C. And now we're going to plant a tree because we used a rescue helicopter. I don't buy any of it.

GUTFELD: Carbon offsets are a great --

BECKEL: So you buy into the conspiracy that this is all conspiracy?

GUILFOYLE: If I say yes, can we go to commercial?

GUTFELD: Yes. All right. When we come back. Is the economy really making a comeback? George Will has some analysis you want to hear.

And later, a sneak peek at the first Super Bowl commercials. I'm so happy.

GUILFOYLE: I love that.



GUILFOYLE: Welcome to 2014, folks.

Now, did you know you will be paying $54 billion in new taxes this year? That's right. Yet another drag on the economy. And speaking of the economy, the president wants Americans to think things are going pretty well.


BARACK OBAMA, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: In 2013, our businesses created another 2 million jobs, our economy grew at its strongest pace in nearly two years, the unemployment rate has steadily fallen to the lowest point in five years and I firmly believe that 2014 can be a break-through year for America.


GUILFOYLE: But George Will makes this point, which you won't hear anywhere but FOX News.


GEORGE WILL, WASHINGTON POST: The recession began in December 2007. Since then, we've added 13 million more Americans in the country and we have 1.3 million fewer jobs. We've lower the unemployment rate largely, not entirely, but largely because work force participation rate has gone down as more and more workers have been are to longer counted because they are no longer looking for work.

If the work force participation rate today were as high as it was when the recession began, the unemployment rate would be 11.3 percent and we wouldn't be calling it a poor recovery because it wouldn't be a recovery at all.


GUILFOYLE: All right. So, what do you make of this? Do you think he's accurate? Good assessment on point?

BOLLING: Are you talking about George Will or Barack Obama? Because Barack Obama said --

GUILFOYLE: Both, two parts.

BOLLING: OK. So, President Obama says the economy is growing and unemployment is going down and everything is great. So, why then we would continue to increase the amount of money we turn over to people in food stamps, why are welfare rolls getting bigger and bigger? When things get better, you are supposed to pull people off that, the thing that you're supposed to pull back on some of those programs, but that doesn't seem to happen.

George Will is right, with the labor participation rate at the lowest level in 40 years, and if you add the people that have left the work force, that over the last five years, you add them back into the workforce, the unemployment rate would be well over 11 percent.

BECKEL: This is your argument like global warming. You guys keep coming back to this thing about --


BOLLING: What did I say that was untrue?

BECKEL: The fact of the matter of is, there are some jobs that did not come back because of the globalization of the economy. The fact of the matter of is, that there is -- you are saying people that are not working --

BOLLING: They're discouraged. They walked away, discouraged --


BECKEL: Because they don't have jobs that fit them. That's why.

BOLLING: So the economy, the reason why you work, you work in the economy, it's not providing the jobs for those people.

BECKEL: How do you argue the last quarter of the United States had the biggest economic growth in the world?

BOLLING: There is no question we are coming out of a recession and we're growing.

But President Reagan had almost 9 percent growth rate coming out of his recession. And we are like at 3 percent. That is great.


BECKEL: It's pretty good actually if you look around the world, frankly.

GUILFOYLE: Dana, you were reading the paper.

PERINO: Well, I wasn't trying to rude. I was trying to I meant to print this out earlier.

Kim Strassel who writes in "The Wall Street Journal" on Fridays, she wrote today about -- we were talking about the $54 million in tax credits that go away so people end up paying more. But actually, she reports about $40 billion in exemptions given to politically powerful people like rum distillers, renewable energy firms and the Michigan NASCAR track owners to name a few.

So the crony capitalism piece of Washington continues to rotten people's feelings about D.C. for good reasons. So when they come back to do the budget, there are some things where they could cut and hopefully restore those military .

BECKEL: The reason those tax cuts where they are, are not good places because Republicans refuse to allow people to extend unemployment benefits.



BECKEL: That's what stalled that bill. It was.


GUTFELD: $54 billion, 27 Solyndras. Let's always remember that.

GUILFOYLE: Remember that.

GUTFELD: The expired breaks teach you a listen about tax, the tax theory. It's like mold in your house. You can -- the rollback or the reduction in taxes is never permanent, but the increase or the fight to increase taxes always is.

So, it's always an ongoing battle to push it back and that's why whenever you think you're getting your taxes cut, you're never really getting them cut. They're just slowing the increase a little bit more. As for the new jobs created under Obama, they are nothing but snow jobs.

BOLLING: And part-time snow jobs.

GUILFOYLE: And part-time snow jobs -- I've never heard of that term before.

GUTFELD: Was that a cheap shot, Bob?

BECKEL: It was a cheap shot. Manufacturing is up --

GUTFELD: How do you call this a recovery? A recovery is two definitions. One definition is that it's getting better, and the other is finding the bodies.

BOLLING: Bob, you go to labor statistics, In 75 percent of the jobs created under President Obama, 75 percent are part-timer jobs. That's a recovery?

GUILFOYLE: All right. Let's listen to Krauthammer. His take on the economy, I want to get this in right now.

GUTFELD: Krauthammer!


CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER, SYNDICATED COLUMNIST: Obama has decided he's going to dedicate himself and the rest of his time in office to fighting inequality. He has created the inequality, because of the zero interest rate, because the Fed has put $1 trillion into higher assets, meaning the market. It's the rich who got richer and it's left everybody else behind. And that's why you get the massive discontent in this economy not improving. He is the cause and now, he is going to redeem us from the misery that he has contributed to.



GUTFELD: It's interesting. The Obama administration in a way is like a drinking problem. You are constantly fighting the mess you create and every day you have the hangover and you are trying to get yourself out of it.

It's like alcohol, which is as Homer Simpson said, the solution and the cause of your problems.


BECKEL: Krauthammer just said it was Obama that made rich people richer because of the Fed program and the zero interest rates. So, that means, by the same time, you all jump on Obama for beating up on the rich, but you can't have it both ways.


BECKEL: Of course I can.


BOLLING: But here is the thing. And it is interesting that you, again, we've had this discussion before, you have a problem with income inequality. I would have it, too, if incomes were going down and you can say, well, the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poor. That's not what's happening. Rich are getting richer. There is no doubt.

Anytime you have a zero interest policy, people in stock market, people investing are going to do well. But the poor are getting benefits as well. They're having -- there's a lot of trickle down that happens. They are able to buy homes on low interest or no interest loans that they couldn't before. So, the wealth factor, people are getting wealthier on the way up. Yes, richer are the --

BECKEL: How does that account for the median family income in this country actually going down over the last 10 years, 10 years ago? How is that possible?

BOLLING: Because it went down so much. If you take it 10 to five years ago, it went up dramatically. The last five years were so bad, we are starting to recover -- which is a good thing.

BECKEL: OK, I'll buy into that, I guess.


PERINO: I think that this -- well, we should all get ready to have a lot more discussions about income equality because the Democrats -- we didn't talk about this in the prior week, I can't remember which day it is. It's Friday today. The Democrats announced they are going to push minimum wage laws and increases in minimum wage as part of their 2014 platform which I try to keep -- I don't think they are trying to win seats. I think they're trying to keep some seats safe.

So, we're going to have a lot more opportunity to talk about this in the next several months.

GUTFELD: Oh, that's a tease for the next several months. Nobody leave.

PERINO: Never want to miss "The Five". It is stimulating conversation.


GUILFOYLE: OK, all those little snow bunnies out there, when we come back, it's Facebook Friday. Go to and send us your question now.

And we've got our hands on the first Super Bowl commercials, a couple of entertaining ones from Doritos, see which ones you like. We're going to show them to you.

Stay with us.


BOLLING: Well, it's time for the first FIVE Facebook free for all of '14.

You posted your questions for us and we're going to answer them. We have a lot to go too. So, we'll go -- yes, very quickly.

First one for Bob -- how did you recover after that kiss from Kimberly?

GUIFOYLE: Recover?


BECKEL: I'm so not recovered from it. In fact, I think I may have to go into rehab again.

GUILFOYLE: Oh, your addicted to my love.

BOLLING: Kimberly, have you recovered from that --

GUILFOYLE: I just want to say --

BECKEL: By the way, let's make something clear, she initiated the kiss, I did not.

GUILFOYLE: I just want to say that I got a doctor's note. Apparently, I was suffering from severe hypothermia and frost bite. And instead of what people do in the snow but taking all your clothes off and going crazy, I kissed Bob.

BOLLING: I got to move on. Does Bob realize he makes an Archie Bunker case, pursing his lips off to one side when he makes an appropriate comment? That's from Andrea C. Not Andrea T., by the way.

BECKEL: Andrea, that was very perceptive of you. I certainly do, and that's for you.


BOLLING: Do it again. Do it again.


BOLLING: Very good. I don't know, Bob. I don't know.

GUILFOYLE: Uncanny resemblance.

BOLLING: Next up for Dana, question one: Dana, are you excited for the return of "Justified"?

PERINO: Definitely. I have to go to a dinner that night and I'm really excited by the dinner, but I'm going to watch -- I won't be able to see it that night.


GUILFOYLE: We don't get invited to dinners like that. I only got invited to one pot roast dinner.

PERINO: "Justified" is a great show.

BOLLING: Y went to Dana's pot roast --

GUILFOYLE: Pot roast with Bob?

BOLLING: Sunday the other day?

BECKEL: Yes, that was great.

GUILFOYLE: You were in Puerto Rico.

BOLLING: OK, very good.

All right. Dana, another question, what book are you reading right now? From Alex.

PERINO: OK, well, that's a great question and an amazing timing, because I just said in the commercial break, I finished this morning "The Goldfinch" by Donna Tartt and there is a lot of writing about drug use in it.

GUTFELD: Terrible.

PERINO: But I'm still thinking about that book. It's going to live with me for a while. Boris and Theo.

I can't read his book yet, it is not out.

BOLLING: And this is for Greg.

Greg, can you going to apologize to Bob for the lousy gift you gave him and give him something nice? From Stanley.

GUTFELD: I do -- I do owe Bob and I think it's going to be a dinner at a steakhouse, of my choice.

BECKEL: And do we have to read your book?

GUTFELD: Yes. It will be a public reading, in my leather Spanx.

GUILFOYLE: You said you were going to get him a massage, at a Korean massage place.


GUILFOYLE: He did, I swear.

BOLLING: Let's move on.

What is your prediction, Greg, on how many words you'll ban this year? From William.

GUTFELD: Usually, I ban at least two words a week. So that will be 17,000.

BOLLING: Over a hundred.

GUTFELD: Yes, funny, but I don't know. I don't like predictions.

PERINO: It makes you nervous?


BOLLING: K.G. is up.

My husband loves Kim's shoes, Kim. What is your favorite shoe designer and how many pairs do you own?

GUILFOYLE: Oh, my goodness.


PERINO: Campaign adviser, I advise you not to answer that question.

GUILFOYLE: Thank God, I'm not running for anything. Thank God, I've been married too many times to run for anything.

OK, or maybe not. My favorite -- these are actually Gucci, but my favorite is Louis Vuitton and Jimmy Chu but I like Nine West and Vince Camuto and Aldo (ph).

PERINO: Yes, right.

BECKEL: And how many do you have?

GUILFOYLE: I can't say. Next to Imelda Marcos, good answer?

BOLLING: Next one, Kimberly, would you ever consider being a prosecutor again if the opportunity presented itself? Max D.

GUILFOYLE: Yes. I love to roll play with Bob and I prosecute him every day.

BECKEL: When you start to read that question, I thought, oh, no, they didn't really ask that question.

GUILFOYLE: I know, OK, Bob.

BOLLING: Terrible. You guys are awful.

To Eric, did Eric ever get his car back? Sheila K.

Absolutely not. That car is gone. Third one stolen, all gone.

Next question, if I want to know if Eric has any bad habits? And if so, what are they? Linda B.

BECKEL: He's addicted to see (ph) television.

GUILFOYLE: Addicted to hosting TV.

BECKEL: No, hosting it. I said, you could run this network and be on FOX first, first all the way through to run --

GUILFOYLE: Cuff links.

BECKEL: You are doing Hannity tonight?

BOLLING: I am doing Hannity tonight. I enjoy doing --

BECKEL: Well, clearly.

BOLLING: Guess what I have --


PERINO: Why is it printed in 18-foot --

BOLLING: OK. I will tell you. If I go out and have a cocktail once in a while, I have to remember always to take the car service home.


BOLLING: Always take a car service.

GUILFOYLE: You don't have to remember.

BOLLING: But maybe sometimes I have to make sure I do that.

OK. Question for all, where would you most likely travel to that you have never been? From Laura B.

Let's take it around. Kimberly, let's start with you? Where would you most likely travel that's never been before?


BOLLING: Very good. Robert?

BECKEL: Amalfi Coast, in Italy.

BOLLING: I agree with you. I've never been there iehter. I have to get there too.

GUILFOYLE: That's a good one.


PERINO: I was going to say Venice because I've never -- I've been to Italy a couple times, but I never to Venice. But the most ever -- I don't know.

GUTFELD: Oh, I would definitely say Milpitas, California. They have an excellent Malibu grand prix track.

BOLLING: So, you're here?


BOLLING: I've never been there and I've been waiting for someone to invite me.

GUILFOYLE: You grew up right there?

GUTFELD: Yes, but I never made it over, in Milpitas, California.

GUILFOYLE: OK, that's --

BECKEL: That's because he started to run Milpitas, let me tell you that.

BOLLING: That will do it.

GUTFELD: Milpitas.

BOLLING: Coming up, the Super Bowl may be a month away but we've already got -- some of the awesome commercials.


GUILFOYLE: What is wrong with you, Bob?

BOLLING: Plus, our pick for who's going to win the BCS championship, Florida State or Auburn? Next on "The Five".


GUILFOYLE: You have so many problems.



BECKEL: I'm sorry. Sorry, I was just reading the spread on this. That's -- I'm sorry.

Super Bowl Sunday will be here before you know it. February 2 right here in New York City. It's actually in New Jersey. "The Five" got a hold of a couple of Doritos ads that might air that day. Here's the first one, starring an ostrich.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I am upset, guys. Someone has eaten all of the Doritos in the break room, while mind you, making an incredible mess. And I've narrowed it down to you two.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Well, obviously it was the ostrich, right?


BECKEL: And here is No. 2, "Time Machine." Yes.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Want to try out my time machine? It runs on Doritos.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Sure. So now what?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Got to put the whole bag in.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE: It's really working, Jimmy.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Get out of my yard!

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Jimmy? You're so old.


BECKEL: That's pretty good. And we should tell you that Doritos has this contest where they ask independent filmmakers to submit their ads, and the one that gets the most number of votes will be in the Super Bowl. And maybe two of them will be in the Super Bowl. So...

PERINO: And they get a million dollars.

BECKEL: The one that's now leading the voting they wouldn't put on. And our producers were screaming, saying they wouldn't put it on. I loved it. It's called the "Brown Finger." Go ahead.

GUILFOYLE: No, it's not, Bob. So inappropriate.

GUTFELD: The Brown Finger is a club we used to go to.

GUILFOYLE: Terrible, Dana. Isn't it? No, it's not called that.

BOLLING: We need to keep on track here.

BECKEL: Dana, which one of them did you like?

PERINO: The ostrich.

BOLLING: What are you -- what's wrong with Bob?

PERINO: The ostrich.

BECKEL: The ostrich? Greg?

PERINO: I like the ostrich.

GUTFELD: Can I just make a serious statement about the Super Bowl and how sexist it is that not in the history of the Super Bowl has there been one women player. There have been no transgendered umpires or referees. And there have been no sequential hermaphroditic cheerleaders. Football is the folly for the white, rich male. Homophobic, gun-loving creep.

BECKEL: Can you tell us which of the commercials you liked?

GUTFELD: I like the ostrich, because who doesn't love a good ostrich?


GUILFOYLE: I think the ostrich was super cute and had great facial expressions.

BECKEL: Well, the one I liked was not being shown. It's called...

GUILFOYLE: We know! Come on, Bob.

BECKEL: It's a great ad. You ought to see it. Look, the other thing that's going to happen here soon is the bowl championship series is going to be, fortunately, the last one before we get to playoffs, but that's going to be Florida State versus Auburn. The spread is 8.5?

BOLLING: Eight and a half, Florida State.

BECKEL: Where are you going?

BOLLING: I think Auburn. The team that beat Alabama, and they're a fantastic team. That's a lot of points.

GUILFOYLE: Yes. I never give...

BECKEL: You're our resident expert on football here, Dana.

PERINO: Well, which team plays tonight? The two...

BOLLING: No, that's the...

PERINO: Isn't there a game tonight? At that game Dierks Bentley is playing at the halftime. That's what I know about the bowl series.

GUILFOYLE: Okie-dokie.

BECKEL: Greg, how about you?

PERINO: But Auburn is going to win, and I already picked them anyway.

GUTFELD: Can you show me the logos again? I usually go strictly by logos for this game. Do we have them? Thanks. There they are. I don't know. I find the one on the right, the letters, deeply offensive to the alphabet.

GUILFOYLE: What the...

BECKEL: OK. Kimberly, what about you?

GUILFOYLE: I'm going with Auburn, because I want to take the points and I never give up more than seven points.

BECKEL: OK. I'd say it's all percentages.

GUILFOYLE: Plus, they had a tougher season. I think they played tougher teams, actually, despite the number that Florida is blowing out their opponents.

BECKEL: OK, I'll be the only holdout here. I'm going with Florida.

OK. "One More Thing" is up next.

GUILFOYLE: I like your new approach.


PERINO: Nice whistling, Greg.

GUTFELD: Thank you.

PERINO: All right. It's time now for "One More Thing," and Eric's going to kick us off.

BOLLING: OK. So tonight I'm hosting "Hannity," but at 10 p.m., we're going to have Senator Rand Paul on, and he's breaking some news that kind of leaked out a little bit earlier that he's going to lead a class-action lawsuit. He's going to actually sue President Barack Obama, and he's going to tell us all about it at the top of the hour at 10. And then a little bit after that, Glenn Greenwald is going to weigh in on some of the breaking NSA stuff, stuff that's been going on lately. (UNINTELLIGIBLE), we'll talk about that later. Actually, it's going to be good tomorrow morning, too.


BOLLING: Stick around for the "Hannity" thing. This is big. I guarantee the Obama administration is going to be watching that show.

BECKEL: Is he doing "Red Eye" for you tonight?


PERINO: They are staying up late, because they're in Hawaii.

All right. Greg, you're next.

GUTFELD: Gee whiz. Tonight O'Reilly will be doing -- picking out pinheads of the year and some other stuff that he yells at me, as usual.

And then "Red Eye" tomorrow, at 11 p.m., we've got a lot of military guys on. We're taking the opposite tack. We are trashing the hell out of Glenn Greenwald.

GUILFOYLE: On "Red Eye"? I think you have to just keep it on FOX.

GUTFELD: He's using you, Eric. You have to understand that. He's using you. You know?

BOLLING: Greg, we can get into it, but I'm going to say -- I agree.

GUTFELD: He thinks you're a useful idiot. He really does.

BOLLING: I don't think so.

BOLLING: Listen, why don't you come on? You and I could...

GUTFELD: Yes, absolutely. Only if I get to wear...

BECKEL: That's 80 percent of the entire FOX lineup.

PERINO: All right. Kimberly gets to go next.


GUILFOYLE: I have an amazing "One More Thing" for my friend, Dana Perino, and it is great, because Kroger's department stores -- excuse me, grocery stores, which is really great, did an awesome thing. They did a huge buyout of tickets for the Bengals game, because in order for the game to be shown on local TV, it has to sell out. Otherwise, they're going to black it out locally, which is not a good thing.

So they're going to be distributing the tickets -- and this is the important part -- to retired military veterans, and that's what's going to be exciting. They get to go to this game, see the team play. And I just hope that other people buy the rest of the tickets so that, locally, people can check it out and watch it, as well.

PERINO: That was a great "One More Thing."

GUTFELD: I have to admit, the thing that went up there said I was hosting O'Reilly. I'm not hosting. I'm on it. I was just told that.

PERINO: But you know what? It would be great if you were, and I would have watched it.

GUTFELD: Thank you.

PERINO: All right. I'll be watching anyway, I guess.

Bob, you're next.

BECKEL: Most of you know that I'm a recovering alcohol, that I go to a lot of AA meetings and there are some things that you hear, these messages that I want to pass on to you at the beginning of the year, because they're helpful, whether you're a recovering alcoholic or not.

The first one is, if you have resentments, get them resolved as quickly as you possibly can, because those things tend to have a tendency to grow and get much more bigger -- much bigger than they appear. So if you've got a resentment with somebody, sit down and get it over with.

The second one -- and I love this one -- when you're in your own mind, you're behind enemy lines, which is to say you get caught up in your mind and your mind will tell you to do some strange things. Don't pay attention to your mind. It's not a good idea, particularly if you have a small one like me.

And the last one is, a lot of times people who are drinkers or drug addicts decide they're going to move to try to get cured. And there's a wonderful line that says, "No matter where I go, there I am."

OK, that's all.

PERINO: I feel the same way about Greg. No matter where I go, there is Greg.

GUTFELD: Because I'm stalking you.

PERINO: That's right.

I have a fun "One More Thing." I want to give a shout-out to over 1,200 students from 60 countries that are participating in the 34th annual World Universities Debating Championship. This is the first time ever it's been held in Chennai, India, and they talk about all sorts of topics from NATO and media issues and global security threats, which would be -- maybe they'll go on "Hannity."

But let's see: They had six schools from the -- from the U.S., Clemson, Duke, University of Denver, Yale, Stanford, Harvard.

And we're going to go to "Special Report." Bye.

GUILFOYLE: Good night.
