The Five

Obama blames Fox News, Limbaugh for painting 'caricature'

This is a rush transcript from "The Five," January 24, 2014. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

ERIC BOLLING, CO-HOST: Hello, everyone. I'm Eric Bolling, along with Andrea Tantaros, Bob Beckel, Dana Perino and Greg Gutfeld.

It's 5 o'clock in New York City. This is "The Five."

(MUSIC)

BOLLING: For some reason, President Obama just can't get us off his mind. It's almost like we live rent free in his head.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

BARACK OBAMA, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: I've got one television station entirely devoted to attacking my administration.

Just in case some of your friends or neighbors or, you know, Uncle Jim who is a little stubborn and been watching FOX News and --

If you talk to somebody who said, well, I don't know, I was watching FOX News and they said this is horrible.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I assume you're talking about Fox.

OBAMA: Well, that's a pretty big megaphone.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

BOLLING: Big is right.

And today, The New Yorker released more of their expansive, extensive interview with the president. He said, they said, quote, "The issue has been the inability of my message to penetrate the Republican base so that they feel persuaded that I'm not the caricature that you see on Fox News or Rush Limbaugh."

So, Bob, why can this man not get us out of his mind?

BOB BECKEL, CO-HOST: Well, because every day, he's getting bludgeoned. That's probably one reason we can't get out of his mind. And we also have a very aggressive and very good White House correspondent who I would say is fairly aggressive when it comes to questioning the press secretary.

But you know, a lot of the people who come on FOX are people who have some decidedly different views, although there are people like me who strongly support Obama in some areas. But I tell you right now, they better -- this is not the time to be picking fights with people. I mean, when you're sitting where you are in the polls right now, the general rule of thumb in politics is let your enemies be quiet, try to embrace your friends, but don't attack your opponents.

I'd tried to tell my candidates and this and this is the wrong time.

BOLLING: Seems like blame Fox, blame Rush, blame the Republican House. Blame anyone but don't blame me.

DANA PERINO, CO-HOST: He does seem to have an unhealthy regard -- you know how he always says, I don't watch the news, I don't do this, but he seems to know an awful lot about it. It can't be just the staff coming in in the morning and telling the president what happened on FOX News last night.

I disagree with his assessment, obviously, but when he complains that he hasn't been able to penetrate the Republicans with his message, this today from Mike Gershon, who is a "Washington Post" columnist, who was a speechwriter for President Bush, who actually I think has been very fair to the president.

These are some of the words that President Obama himself used in the second inaugural address. It's not like he was trying to be inclusive here. Some of them include that his opponents mistake absolutism for principles. Name calling is raising debate. They believe that the twilight years of seniors should be spent in poverty, and they want to insure that parent of disabled parents have nowhere to turn and reserve freedom for the lucky.

Those are President Obama's own words from the second inaugural. So, yes, they should blame themselves. And also, when they say there is this one television station that is dedicated to just, you know, opposing him all the time, look, they do have a television station that is dedicated solely to promoting him. And it's not our fault that no one watches it.

BOLLING: Fair and balanced. We take both sides. Bob is proof of that right there.

Greg, does he watch -- does President Obama or Jay Carney and the group watch "The Five"?

GREG GUTFELD, CO-HOST: They better. They might learn something.

You know why he's singling out FNC? It's not his fault. When -- this is what happens when media, who is supposed to speak truth to power, abrogates their roles in exchange for acceptance. So, Obama now finds the media in his mind to be his own bordello, except there's one lady who won't sleep with him, and she happens to be the hottest one, which is FNC.

So, he's like a rejected suitor, that MSNBC, that really old hooker, can't satisfy him anymore. And he looks at FNC and he goes, me, me, why not me? And we go, hmm, sorry.

BOLLING: Too hot here.

GUTFELD: Yes, we're too hot for you.

BOLLING: Ands, are we too hot for the president?

(LAUGHTER)

ANDREA TANTAROS, CO-HOST: What a question.

I suppose we are, Greg. And no, I will not sleep with President Obama. I guess is your analogy.

I'm still thinking of you saying living in Obama's head rent free. As much as I pay in rent, I still don't think I would want to live in his head rent free, I'll still take the Upper West Side, which is just slightly better than President Obama's head. It's still liberal.

But the statement that he says, FOX News is the reason I can't get my message to penetrate the Republican base. The Republican base doesn't want your message.

BOLLING: Right.

TANTAROS: We've heard it. We haven't heard it from FOX News. We heard it from your own mouth, and we don't want it, and it's the same one over and over again is what they're saying.

I think he's deeply in trouble. And like any team in trouble, he tends to go to the playbook and run the same play. When he is deeply down in the polls and he's not very popular, it's like he does the old Clinton maneuver of "let your enemies define you."

Find an enemy, go after them, and he's done it before and he thinks somehow this is going to benefit him by blaming a network that is just giving both sides.

BECKEL: One thing I will say. Look, cable news does set the trend for reporting during the day. It used to be the "New York Times." That was "New York Times". We're done with that.

Well, now, cable news is sort of dominating the 24-hour cycle.

PERINO: Yes, but don't you think that's "Morning Joe" more than any other -- in terms of a policy debate, setting the agenda?

BECKEL: Well, I think "The Five" probably helps to contribute to that.

PERINO: But that's not until later in the day.

BECKEL: I know. But, listen --

(CROSSTALK)

BECKEL: I happen to know that Michelle Obama has watched the show several times. And she is -- she would not put this up as necessarily her happiest show, but -- and I sit here day in and day out, and you have some problems with Obama. I can understand Obama's frustration.

The problem I've got is there's no end game here.

PERINO: It's like Republicans, though, who try to always run against the media. It doesn't work, and it wears thin after a while. I mean, it can maybe help you in a Republican primary when Newt Gingrich was constantly going after the media, that actually really worked well for him.
But it doesn't work well in the general election.

(CROSSTALK)

BECKEL: Maybe we can (INAUDIBLE) of negativism.

BOLLING: Bobby, I've got two more topics to get to.

BECKEL: I'm sorry.

BOLLING: Yesterday, former Governor Mike Huckabee spoke at the RNC's winter meeting where he said Democrats thrive off making women believe they need birth control. Listen carefully.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MIKE HUCKABEE (R), FORMER ARKANSAS GOVERNOR: Our party stands for the recognition of the equality of women and the capacity of women. That's not a war on them. It's a war for them.

And if the Democrats want to insult the women of America by making them believe that they are helpless without Uncle Sugar coming in and providing for them a prescription each month for birth control because they cannot control their libido or their reproductive system without the help of the government, then so be it, let us take that discussion all across America.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

BOLLING: OK, the media was quick to run with this and help push the so-called GOP's war on women.

Greg, the way I understand it, he was speaking -- the Democrats'
voice, right?

GUTFELD: This is one of those common intentionally misconstruance by vile weirdoes. This never happens to the left, only to conservatives. He was saying that women -- he would talk to are tired of Democrats treating them like dependent creatures. That's what he was saying. He wasn't saying they are dependent creatures.

That's why conservatives, all of us -- Bob, sorry -- all of us must try harder because we will always have a target on our back, and they will shoot at you, not just when you're wrong but especially you're right. They will go after you because he is right. That's why they went after him.

BOLLING: Hang in there, Bob. I have to go to Ands on this one. Just hold it for one second. They circle the wagons on the left. All day long, over those other networks, all the politicos, all the pundits, everyone out there is saying Huckabee clearly was talking about his feelings, and he wasn't, was he?

TANTAROS: He was talking about his feelings. The first part of his statement, I thought, was very good. There's a point in which he should have stopped, though. He hit the nail on the head.

And really, women did show, not all women, but a majority of women showed this last election, shockingly, that yes, they do want their sex lives subsidized by the government. I was surprised by the exit polls.

But here's what I think. Mike Huckabee is a wonderful man. I know what he meant to say, but I think there needs to be a new rule. Men in the Republican Party need to never use the word birth control again -- or any man, for that matter.

They can talk about the religious exemption. That's totally fine, but if they want to put a stake in the ground over denying women birth control, which is a very personal decision, I think it is a huge mistake.

But Democrats know it's the long-term key to Democratic allegiance.
When women have kids and get married, they tend to lean right. If they can get them reliant early, they win.

But just don't take the bait, Republican men, anymore. Leave it alone. You're never going to win that one.

BOLLING: Go ahead, Bob.

I was going to say, I have known Mike Huckabee a long time, too. He and I had a long talk about this one night. He's about the least sexist man I know on that side, for a guy from Arkansas, a governor. He's a good, decent guy.

But this -- Andrea is exactly right. Republican men -- look, we go far on the other side and use it. We use it against you all, but Republican men have an inability to talk to women in this country without stepping on them. They ought to just step back --

GUTFELD: That's because you guys target -- going back to what I was saying.

PERINO: They're looking for it.

GUTFELD: Yes, you're looking for it. We have a much higher bar.

BECKEL: Of course, Greg, we're looking for it. But that means you ought to not say it.

BOLLING: All right. Can I get, Dana, in here?

Shouldn't Mike be able to say that, exactly what he said without being absolutely abused by the left?

PERINO: You can say whatever you want, but you have to understand if you're going to give a big speech like that, this is -- everybody is speculating whether Huckabee is going to run in 2016. You're going to address the RNC at their big convention. This is a speech everyone wanted to go to see.

So, as the speaker, you have an obligation to say, all right, what is the message I want people to walk away with?

He had a good one, which is we -- Republicans are waging a war for women. That's what we should have walked away with. Whoever was editing the speech, and even if it was him, when you read through, you need somebody like me who will go, libido?

No, if you say libido in a speech as a Republican man, that is the only word that people are going to remember. So, he had a really good speech, and I know it's a word that's like, I guess it rolls off the tongue, it's like a great word, and it absolutely ruined his message.

(CROSSTALK)

TANTAROS: When men talk about women's sex lives and birth control, it's creepy.

BOLLING: We've got to move on.

Dinesh D'Souza, a conservative filmmaker who made a movie critical of the president has been indicted for allegedly using improper means to direct funds to certain political campaigns. OK, so if he's wrong, he should be investigated, but Matt Grudge sees a pattern here. He tweeted, quote, "They're going after the Obama critics with indictments. Virginia governor, now Dinesh D'Souza. Holder unleashing the dogs."

Unleashing the dogs? You know, maybe. Maybe.

Ands, you want to jump on this first?

TANTAROS: Oh, yes, I think this is politically motivated. It appears the FBI just dug through every piece of Dinesh D'Souza's past to try to find something. When you look at this, this is arguably the most important U.S. attorney's office in the country, right? They handle Wall Street, they handle terrorism, they handle major corporate bankruptcies. They have it all.

And they assigned an FBI team to dig through a filmmaker's records to find one simple infraction? It's chilling, and where is Hollywood to defend this filmmaker? I wonder.

BOLLING: Bob, could you imagine if the DOJ went after, I don't know, the Fast and Furious, Benghazi, IRS, with the same veracity that they seem to be going after a filmmaker?

BECKEL: They would never go after enough veracity for you.

But let me put it this way, the McDonnell case is one of pure, simple greed and taking money from lobbyists. Those are facts.

If you read the indictments against --

BOLLING: Dinesh D'Souza.

BECKEL: Dinesh D'Souza, this is a guy, purportedly, now, who took money from friends to direct it to somebody who was a friend of his, to the tune of 20,000 bucks.

TANTAROS: A dead in the water candidate?

BECKEL: Wait a minute, that is blatantly illegal.

Now, you can argue he was picked out, but when you say $20,000 to an unwinnable candidate, and he gets people directed money to them when the max was $5,000, he has broken the law.

BOLLING: Right. Dana, I believe his attorney made a statement saying there was no quid pro quo.

PERINO: He will do that. We know how this administration feels about protecting the rights of filmmakers. We still have one in jail who was falsely accused of creating the terrorism attack that happened in Benghazi.
However, if you're Dinesh D'Souza, if you're Hannity, if you're O'Reilly, if you're any of these people, you have to expect that the government will be looking at you. And so, there's a higher level --

BECKLE: He broke the law.

PERINO: I don't know that he broke the law. There's an indictment.
I mean, his attorney said he did not.

So if the scales of justice are equal, then he has a chance to defend himself.

BECKEL: OK, he does have a chance to defend himself. But --

BOLLING: I'm not sure that the -- this really just got released just a couple minutes before the show. I'm not sure he said he didn't break the law. I believe what he said there was no quid pro quo. So he may have broken the law, but it wasn't --

(LAUGHTER)

GUTFELD: Can I make a point, though?

BOLLING: Yes.

GUTFELD: Whether he broke the law or not will be decided later. You have to look at the context of the last year or so between this, the IRS, FOA, Cuomo spouting off the message is clear, that the tolerant will no longer tolerate dissent. The tide is turning against them and they're getting nervous and the left are rediscovering their inner Stalin. They're going after their enemies.

BECKEL: Greg, you did not grow up as I did and become a professional during the time of Richard Nixon. You're talking about targeting people, going after our tax record --

(CROSSTALK)

TANTAROS: Under the same law you say he broke?

BECKEL: Yes.

TANTAROS: Interfering in campaign finance to influence elections.
Didn't, as Greg points out, the IRS do exactly that, interfering with conservative groups to influence the outcome of election? The special prosecutor said nothing to see here.

BECKEL: You can put it off on all kinds of people. The facts are the facts are the facts. If they can prove these facts, he has broken the law, and a serious breach of the law.

BOLLING: We need to go. That's a way to tie that one up there, brother.

All right. Up next, this "New York Times" magazine cover is generating a lot of heat. Why can't the left-wing media eclipse their bias for planet Hillary? We'll debate that later.

And also, lots of reaction to Bob's gangster get-up from yesterday.
Who does he think he is? Tony Soprano. We'll read some of the best feedback from our Facebook page, ahead on "The Five".

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

GUTFELD: So, it must be "take your toad to work day" at the "New York Times" because only a small-brained amphibian could have made this weekend's magazine cover. It's for a piece on Hillary Clinton. It's called "Planet Hillary". It looks like the world's scariest basketball or the world's creepiest Easter egg.

Globey from Pee-Wee's Playhouse, you should sue. Remember him? I miss him.

Like a grim gob stopper from a Tim Burton nightmare that floats in from some hostile universe, where nothing ever matters, especially the past, it's an asteroid in a pant suit.

How amazing is it that Hillary can be so big, so all seeing, like a planet, but completely miss Benghazi or her husband's vast indiscretions.
Was see too busy baking cookies?

Either Planet Hillary has major blind spots or she just doesn't care.
I'd say, what difference does it make? But that's shooting fish in a barrel.

Better to mock "The Times" for only their obedient editors could cream dream up this cover in a feverish, Hillary-loving stupor.

Meanwhile, in the real world, the one without Hillary's base, it retches in the toilet, which is why I once ask again the Republican Party -
- can't you find one smart, accomplished, likeable woman and run her against HRC? If not, our world will become Hillary's and you'll be wishing you were living in Uranus.

(LAUGHTER)

GUTFELD: How can you laugh at such an obvious joke?

BECKEL: What planet is that?

GUTFELD: Uranus, Bob.

By the way, I want to -- Andrea, it's not Hillary's fault that she's on the globe. I think anybody would look creepy if you put them on a globe like that.

TANTAROS: Yes.

GUTFELD: But does that help or hurt her?

TANTAROS: I think it hurts her. It also, I think, hurts her to be the front runner, as we have seen with Chris Christie. It doesn't actually help when the media has anointed you. But -- I mean, an entire planet, get ready for this one.

Also, the "New York Times" the paper, this is the magazine, decided to do a glowing story about how all these Obama people are lining up behind Hillary today, which is showing that she really is going to be the anointed one if she decides to run.

And I don't know what she's going to do, but I just see her as one of the most overrated people ever. I mean, a corrupt first lady in Arkansas.
Her Hillary care almost sabotaged her husband's presidency. She had almost no accomplishments in New York as a senator, was beat by President Obama who didn't run a hotdog stand.

Secretary of state, Benghazi was burning. So, I'm just wondering -- what did she deserve -- what did she do to deserve her face on --

GUTFELD: A planet.

TANTAROS: -- a planet?

GUTFELD: Yes, Bob, I know you want to refute all of that.

BECKEL: Yes, I mean, I think that is just a blanket indictment of somebody who has had a lot of accomplishments. Having said that, front runners, particularly in the Democratic Party, it's tough going wire to wire from Ohio, getting through the convention.

This is starting early. It's going to pick her -- a lot of people are going to start taking shots at her. If I were her, I would be quiet for another six months.

She's going to take a tour of California. Not a good idea as far as I'm concerned. She has all the money in the world, she got people working on it, she got an organization built in, but the more exposed the front runner is, the bigger the target is. Without telling --

TANTAROS: We agree on that.

BECKEL: But secretary of state, she did remarkable things and good think in the Senate. Ask the Armed Services Committee, ask generals, they'll like her and Petraeus.

PERINO: You mean General Petraeus?

BECKEL: Petraeus happens to like her a lot.

PERINO: I know, but I remember that hearing very well.

BECKEL: I'm just saying what Petraeus has said about her.

PEIRNO: Because he's gracious.

BECKEL: He may be gracious, but other generals say it as well. But nonetheless, there's such a thing as overexposure for a front runner. And this one, it can't seem to help to do it. That's the problem.

GUTFELD: Yes. Eric, "Time" magazine did a similar thing where -- it's always like she's huge. In this case, she's stepping on a man. I guess we don't have that cover.

Well, let me act it out -- there it is. So the media sees her as this massive creature from outer space.

BOLLING: You know, the media is kind of right in the sense that her campaign is going to be massive. She's going to blow all of the fund- raising records out of the water. Gravitational pull gets bigger, money is going to flow. Alluding to your monologue, where is Benghazi, where is Lewinsky, on the dark side of the moon, the dark side of the planet, but that's OK.

It works for her. Her husband said to be a good politician, president, you have to have no memory. So, she's good at doing that. I think it's kind of interesting that Obama's infrastructure for raising money is now going to back Hillary Clinton. He was against super PACs before he's for super PACs and now he's going to help another Democrat win the White House.

GUTFELD: Goes back to my mantra, or "womantra" -- Republicans need a chick in the game, Dana. Dana. Condoleezza, Sarah Palin, Dana Perino.

PERINO: They just need someone competent.

BECKEL: Sarah Palin?

GUTFELD: Sarah Palin could beat Hillary, I think. Am I crazy?

PERINO: No, she could not.

GUTFELD: No?

PERINO: No, she could not. In America today, right now?

GUTFELD: She's been drunk before the show.

TANTAROS: I thought you did drink before the show based on that comment.

PERINO: I'm not trying to disparage her, but she couldn't win against her right now.

GUTFELD: I'm just saying, like a strong -- you need a strong Republican woman.

PERINO: I think -- no, you just need a strong Republican with a good message and a position. I'm not going to speak of gender transplants, but I do think that it doesn't matter who needs -- I mean, what gender you are, we need competence.

GUTFELD: At this point, it does.

PERINO: This is Hillary Clinton's world, and we're all just living in it, OK? That will be for a while.

However, it could be she will never get as good of press as she's getting right now.

BECKEL: That's exactly right.

PERINO: So, you could leave on a high note, and then imagine all of the pieces that the media could write about, how did we get it so wrong?
What did we do? Why didn't we make this happen? We didn't do the right thing by her in 2008, and then we screwed it up for 2016.

BECKEL: Can I make one comment in closing? She will have a primary opponent in the 2016 election.

BOLLING: Is it named Joe Biden?

BECKEL: No.

PERINO: Is it named Bob Beckel?

GUTFELD: Elizabeth Warren?

PERINO: Is it named Eric Bolling 2016?

BECKEL: Maybe another woman who runs against her.

TANTAROS: And if a Republican woman would run, they would treat that Republican woman as a Republican man. They would not treat her as a woman.

Just on the final point on the "New York" magazine cover, I'm surprised they didn't make her the sun.

GUTFELD: Hmm, that's true.

TANTAROS: Right? She lights everything.

GUTFELD: That would have offended Obama.

PERINO: You know the other thing?

GUTFELD: What?

PERINO: There's no whitewater on the moon.

GUTFELD: Ladies and gentleman, that's a good joke.

PERINO: It was a great joke that fell flat last night.

BECKEL: (INAUDIBLE) good than that.

(CROSSTALK)

GUTFELD: That was amazing. All right.

OK, coming up, security concerns at the Sochi Olympics intensifies as the State Department issues an alarming new warning to American athletes.
Could team USA uniforms be putting them in danger? We've got that next on "The Five".

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

(CROSSTALK)

PERINO: All right, thank you, Greg, for that musical rendition.

We're just two weeks away from the start of the Olympic Games in Sochi.

GUTFELD: Sochi.

PERINO: Sochi, chi, chi, Russia, and security concerns are dominating the headlines. I'm really making a hash of this. The danger so real, apparently, that the U.S. athletes are being told not to wear their U.S.
gear outside the Olympic compound.

Here, a U.S. hockey star Zach Parise explains the fear from an athlete's perspective.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

ZACH PARISE, TEAM USA HOCKEY PLAYER: I couldn't tell you for sure what's going on in that region, but there's some alarming things that have been happening that kind of make you a little uneasy at times.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

PERINO: And it's not just the athletes who have invested a lot in the Olympics. Their families have, as well.

Listen to the parents of a speed skater Tucker Hendricks.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: He wanted us to stay home so that he wouldn't have to worry about us, one less thing to be concerned about.

REPORTER: The Fredericks said it was a tough decision, after following Tucker's skating career since he was 11.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: It's kind of bittersweet. We wanted to go to support him, but we understand he has to concentrate on the race, and we said, OK, we'll stay home and watch you on TV.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

PERINO: Former presidential candidate Mitt Romney, who was CEO of the
2002 Salt Lake City Games, says the fear is overblown.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MITT ROMNEY (R), FORMER PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE: There's never been a games that I know of that has been so targeted for specific threats as you're seeing in Sochi. At the same time, the level of security preparations appears to be at an unprecedented level. And so, I think people can recognize that the hard sites will be safe. The athletes will be safe. Spectators when they're in the venues will be safe.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

PERINO: Eric, can you imagine that? If you son worked so hard to get to the Olympics and it was your chance to go and so him, and your son said, actually, I think it's better so I don't have to worry about you, so I can concentrate, and you don't get to go?

BOLLING: Then they win. I hate this idea. I hate the thought that we're going to change our behavior, especially the athletes and the athletes' families because some terrorists say they're going to target the Olympics. This happens all the time. They target everything. They target us.

We walked out of here, I walked out a show one day and a guy texted me and said, I have my eye on you. I have a baseball bat, I'm going to hit you for what you said about unions.

I mean, you can't change --

GUTFELD: That was Bob.

(LAUGHTER)

BOLLING: You can't change your behavior, otherwise they win.

By the way, Mitt Romney, good job. I agree with you.

BECKEL: Let me -- but also, what was not put on that Romney said was, all the venues would be protected, the athletic village would be protected, but outside of where tourists stay would be the place he would worry about.
We didn't put that in the clip. That's one.

Two, this is in Sarajevo, we do the same thing. The athletes should not leave the compound, the Olympic Village to go out, because then there was a civil war just ending.

Now, you're in the hotbed of terrorism in the Caucasus. I mean, I couldn't think of a worse place to put it short of Tehran.

PERINO: Andrea, I wanted to ask you what you think Putin is thinking right now in terms of -- do you think this is the lead-up he was expecting?
Do they think -- because they have so many problems with the Chechen rebels, maybe this wasn't unexpected?

TANTAROS: I think Putin is probably thinking, do everything you can to make sure this doesn't happen. He's not a good man, Vladimir Putin, but he does understand the threat of radical Islamic terrorists. They have struck in his country, at schools, at movie theaters.

He has not said to the Russian people that have been decimated or that we're not add war with them. He understands it. The other thing about Russia is they don't have those pesky things called civil liberties, right?

So, I think people are going to get letters, sorry, we shot your son.
But we just don't really care here, we're going to blow you up if we think you're a threat.

PERINO: That actually is interesting, Greg, because Putin has been able to decimate and control the media in Russia. So, he now state- controlled it. He basically tells you what you're going to hear on the news, but he can't control the world's media.

GUTFELD: That's true. It worries him.

Look, the reason some of those athletes may be in danger is because the outfits are ugly. Jackets look like they were sewn in the dark.

But I have a question. If an athlete, god forbid, is injured, do you arrest the makers of the uniforms? Because after all, we arrested the maker of a film that caused Islamic terror.

So, it's not the terrorists' fault, it's the people who incite the terror. They're the bad guys.

And also, the athlete telling his parents not to come -- maybe he just wants to party.

Lastly, you know what is a great uniforms? You've got to see the German uniforms, are amazing. They're like sexy popsicles.

Look at that. I think they're making a political statement. They're using rainbow colors, I guess to protest the Russian anti-gay laws, but those are pretty amazing.

PERINO: Remember that dress made out of peeps they had for Easter last year?

GUTFELD: Fantastic. I hope everything -- I hope that Russians get it together. We don't want anybody hurt.

BECKEL: Let's keep in mind, the '72 Munich Olympics where the Israelis lost a good number of their team members. I keep coming back to that. It's haunting.

That was a very -- the Israelis secured that area very well, and still, Black September got it.

GUTFELD: Well, it's different now.

BOLLING: Way different. The world has changed.

BECKEL: It's changed, I agree with you.

PERINO: One of the reasons is we can track people and their communications.

TANTAROS: And Putin is such an egomaniac, I just cannot imagine him letting something reflect poorly on him.

PERINO: No, I agree.

All right. And he has been helpful in fighting terrorism helpful and ally in that.

All right. Directly ahead, it looks like Justin Bieber's legal problems could go from bad to worse. Could the Biebs be booted back to Canada for allegedly breaking the law in the United States?

The latest on Bieber fever, next on "The Five".

JIMMY KIMMEL, COMEDIAN: Just when the streets are finally safe from Lindsay Lohan, Justin Bieber comes out of nowhere, arrested in Miami Beach earlier this morning on charges of DUI, resisting arrest, driving with an expired license, and he's in trouble with his grandparents for not stopping by to visit while he was here.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

TANTAROS: A lot of people like Jimmy Kimmel are joking about Justin Bieber getting arrested for allegedly street racing under the influence and resisting arrest. But even his most loyal Belibers won't be able to bail him out of some serious legal hot water. And the pop star faces the possibility of being deported back to Canada if he's convicted of an aggravated felony.

So, will the Biebs ever cross that line?

Dana, do you think he will do it? Because, look at here. He's on an
01 visa, which apparently has to be reviewed every year. It's for people with extraordinary ability in the sciences, arts, education, business, or athletics.

So, that's why he's here. Do you think they're going to send him back to Canada?

PERINO: I think they should keep him here so we can get his tax money. We can like raise taxes on him.

I think what Canada is in a strong position here, because the United States of America, because of President Obama's recalcitrance on Keystone Pipeline, has been waiting for five years on an up or down answer. So, what Canada could say is, we'll take Bieber back as long as we can get a yes or no, sir, and then we can make a decision and solve this diplomatic nonsense right away.

TANTAROS: Even if you have a DUI or break the law, President Obama doesn't care if you're here illegally. He said you can stay.

And look at this full-screen that the Biebs sent out earlier today.
Check this out. He compared himself to Michael Jackson. There's a side- by-side of the Biebs and Michael Jackson. He said what more can they say?
With a little king symbol.

Greg, I'm sure you can say a little bit more about that.

GUTFELD: Yes, that didn't turn out too well for Michael Jackson.
Here's how I feel about Bieber. I hope he dyes his hair and grows a beard and lives anonymously for a year and learns what it's like to be grateful for all of the fame that he's achieved. He needs to know what a real life is.

Typically, you ground your kids by sending them upstairs to their room. That's Canada. I have taken down all of my Bieber posters. I have replaced them with One Direction because they have more talent and they're more delicious.

PERINO: Gorgeous.

TANTAROS: There's no way. A lot of legal experts have said just one misdemeanor, a DUI, isn't enough to get rid of the Biebs.

BOLLING: Yes, they're not going to get rid of him, because if that were the standard, there are 12 million that have done more than that. We have to deport 12 million.

Justin Bieber's father, Jeremy Bieber, was seen with Justin two hours after he posted bail for Justin with bottles of alcohol. I mean, there's no question, he's 19 years old. I'm pretty sure in Florida, I think the drinking age is 21, even if the federal drinking age is 21.

So, he's been enabled by his own family. He's on a terrible spot. I agree with Dana. Keep him here. He made $58 million last year, $58 million last year.

Can you believe we live in a country where Justin Bieber can put down
$58 million --

GUTFELD: That just depressed me.

PERINO: Bob, if you've seen the footage, he's racing around in a yellow Lamborghini. I think it was Jimmy Fallon who said, it's such an inconspicuous car there. Amazing he would get caught.

BECKEL: Listen, here's the thing that strikes me about Bieber, he was introduced to America and to the entertainment scene as this clean-cut, wonderful kid from Canada. His mother was keeping a tight reign on him, his grandparents were. His father, by the way, is not a very nice guy -- divorced his mother and only showed up when Bieber took off.

Bieber, now, every incident he's been involved in has involved alcohol or drugs. I think the kid has got a problem. He's got -- not just this DWI, he's got a $20,000 damage suit against him in California. He's being investigated.

This kid doesn't need to go to Canada. He needs to go to a very good rehab, and people need to leave him alone. He needs about six or eight months off.

TANTAROS: Well they can also look at not just the charges that they convict him up, but of the charges he admitted to, which is, he used prescription drugs and then he smoked pot. And they raided his house, and it does sound a lot like Lindsay Lohan with the mom enabling her. The dad is enabling him.

BECKEL: Let's not say DWI, just DWI, those three things together are multiple offenses. You're supposed to take prescription drugs if you're under the influence of alcohol, even if they're prescribed to you.

PERINO: Don't get rid of the Biebs just yet.

All right. Coming up, Bob has vowed to get back in shape this year.
You can smile, Bob. He has been agreeing to a trainer and a new yoga class here in New York City, might offer him another alternative. Coed yoga in the nude. So will Bob try that?

Find out next on "The Five".

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

BECKEL: As you know, I tried yoga over the summer.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

(MUSIC)

BECKEL: This hurts.

Let's hear it. OK, "Awesome, great. Bob, you did it."

(END VIDEO CLIP)

BECKEL: Everyone in Times Square, including me, kept their clothes on. But now, clothing is optional at Bold and Naked, the first coed naked yoga studio here in New York City. I'm getting in shape this year, but downward dog in the buff, it would disgust me. That's disgusting.

Now, let me -- let's turn to our yoga resident here, expert, and that is Dana Perino, who does yoga virtually every day. Dana, would you go down to this and do this?

PERINO: I would not. I -- I go to a beach fully clothed, like with a hoodie and a scarf.

BECKEL: I bet you do.

PERINO: I can imagine that the people that would go to this are not going to be -- they are most likely not going to be, like, supermodels.

BECKEL: Really?

PERINO: No, I would imagine.

GUTFELD: How look-ist. Oh, so the only people who can be naked have to be good looking? That's disgusting to me. You know, there are a lot of people who aren't as hot as you are that like to expose themselves.

PERINO: Like who?

BOLLING: Times Square.

BECKEL: Yes.

GUTFELD: Seventy thousand of them.

BECKEL: Little kids, that's why.

Go ahead, what about you? Would you do it?

TANTAROS: You know, I thought about this today. Would I do it?

BECKEL: I would go if you were doing it.

TANTAROS: I probably would not do it. It sounds very unsanitary, especially if it's a hot yoga class. Then I thought, what if I were mandated to go? I was like, well, I wouldn't want to be in the front row, and then I was like, well, I wouldn't want to be in the back row, either.

PERINO: No.

BECKEL: Well, one person who probably would go, Greg, what do you think?

GUTFELD: My rule is that people who get naked are the people you never want to see naked.

TANTAROS: Yes, at the gym in the locker room today, I looked around.
Everyone who should be naked wasn't. And everyone who shouldn't were butt naked.

GUTFELD: They're always...

(CROSSTALK

BECKEL: The one person who we know could look OK naked besides Dana is my friend Eric Bolling. Eric, would you go do it?

BOLLING: Absolutely not.

BECKEL: Why?

BOLLING: All right. Can we just pretend I'm single and this is available to me?

PERINO: Let's pretend.

BOLLING: Let's pretend. OK, so you think you're going to go there and see attractive women. Isn't there going to be a problem at some point?

PERINO: Also, I guess not -- the clothing for yoga is not very restricting. I mean, what are people hoping to achieve here?

GUTFELD: This is a mask for a...

PERINO: Pervert. A pervert.

GUTFELD: Yes, to get around certain laws.

BECKEL: That's the problem with Sexual Anonymous, when they had that started.

GUTFELD: That's what it was for?

BECKEL: Yes, it was. Now, one of the things about yoga, as I understand it, it makes blood flow.

TANTAROS: That's the problem, Bob. His blood may flow to a certain region.

BECKEL: The blood flows freely in certain places.

PERINO: I don't know what you mean. What are you talking about?

BECKEL: Of course you wouldn't know.

PERINO: I'm so confused.

GUTFELD: It's a family show.

BECKEL: Just go back to our ranch and think about bowls.

OK, now, let me say something that can surprise a lot of you. I think it's disgusting. It's a horrible idea, and I wouldn't participate in it.
Even I wouldn't participate in it.

"One More Thing" is up next.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

BOLLING: All right. Time for "Uno Cosa Mas." Bob, you're first.

BECKEL: What does that mean?

BOLLING: "One More Thing."

BECKEL: OK, yesterday, I happened to wear an outfit that some of you, a lot of you on Twitter, got in touch with us and said various things.

Let me read some of the things you said about me. From Norman W., "Does this make him a thug? Just asking."

Missy, "He looks cute." Nice to hear. Thank you, Melissa.

Valerie S., "As much as I dislike his liberal biased thinking, he looks pretty cool in this outfit."

Gator -- Go Go Gator, "You punk."

And Knight (ph), "Fat piece of trash, drop dead, Bob." Panabla (ph).

Kenny: "Bob, smoking is not good for you."

Timothy M.: "Bob is looking good. He lost some weight. Now if he could just drop Obama."

"Our little monster teddy bear, Bob."

rShelly, "Republican, but really love Bob. Are you married?"

No, I'm not. Shelly, send me a picture.

PERINO: Oh, my God.

TANTAROS: Are you looking?

BOLLING: Greg, you're up.

GUTFELD: All right. The women watching, get your daughters around the TV. Because I know the proms are not until May, but the shopping for prom dresses starts tomorrow. And I have some tips for you when you're buying a prom dress and some tips for the prom.

No. 1, on the day of your prom, girls, do not get a facial. Your skin is going to get irritated, and you don't want a red face at the prom for the wrong reason.

Don't wear neon. You don't need to be flashy to be noticed.

Don't have your bobs hanging out of your dress. That's cheap.

Don't wear high platform shoes, because you're going to take them off and then your dress is going to drag on the floor and your mother can't sell it on eBay.

Don't look different than you normally like every day. No fuchsia lips.

If you put your drink down, get a new one, including Coca-Cola.
Somebody might put something in.

Lastly, when you're buying your dress, dance in front of the mirror when trying it on, just to see how it flows. That's what I do.

PERINO: You're put a lot of thought into this.

BOLLING: There's a million 17-year-old boys going, don't listen to anything Gutfeld...

GUTFELD: I know. I know. I was once one of them.

BECKEL: And rufie sales are going through the roof.

PERINO: And a prom dress purchaser?

GUTFELD: Yes.

TANTAROS: Why does it start today or tomorrow?

GUTFELD: If you look at all the young girl magazines right now, it's prom, prom, prom.

PERINO: How do you know this?

GUTFELD: I subscribe.

BOLLING: Andrea -- why were you looking at all the young girl magazines? Andrea.

TANTAROS: OK, so remember when the Captain and Tennille said this?

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

THE CAPTAIN AND TENNILLE, MUSICIANS (singing): Love, love will keep us together.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

TANTAROS: Apparently not, folks. After 39 years of marriage, the Captain and Tony Tennille, yes, they are headed for divorce. Apparently, the captain was totally blindsided by Tennille.

This story has me very distraught. I thought we should have led with it, as a soft rock music junky. Apparently, she just got tired of him after 39 years. But I say after 39 years, what's the point?

BECKEL: Well, he's also become a methamphetamine freak. Look at those pictures.

TANTAROS: So maybe the Captain can't get his sails up. I don't know.
Tony Tennille sang backup for Pink Floyd's "The Wall," though. And Daryl Dragon also played in the Beach Boys.

BECKEL: I'm only kidding.

TANTAROS: Those are some facts that the brain room won't give you here at the FOX News Channel. Very sad stuff.

PERINO: You mean the sales of his songs?

TANTAROS: "Give it to me one more time"? No, never again.

GUTFELD: By the way, Eric, you know what I forgot to do?

BOLLING: What?

GUTFELD; I had a Nexio for my prom tips. Roll it.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE (singing): Greg's prom tips.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

GUTFELD: That guy is such a creepy voice.

That was me singing, but I felt bad because I worked on that and I forgot.

PERINO: You'll be able to use it again. Because I have a feeling this will be a recurring thing.

BOLLING: Dana is up.

PERINO: All right. So one of the things happening in the polar vortex with all the snow is that in New York City, they have to put down salt, calcium chloride. And the problem is it's bothering dogs' paws.

And this includes American's dog, Jasper, who had to wear these plastic shoes last night for the first time. And he was like a kid wearing new shoes. They didn't last very long. They fell apart as soon as he come outside. So these are the boots we put on him later.

TANTAROS: What a cute...

PERINO: He couldn't really walk in those either.

BOLLING: You've got to be careful. The salt gets in their toes.

PERINO: It's a big problem. And I can't carry a 60-pound dog.

GUTFELD: Big problem. America.

BOLLING: Before my quick "One More Thing," Bob do you want...?

BECKEL: I wanted to say that Tony Tennille thing was a joke. I used methamphetamine. He did not.

BOLLING: All right. Very quickly, tomorrow, DVR "Cashin' In." Tomorrow morning, we're going to deconstruct the State of the Union coming up on Tuesday.

PERINO: Pre-construct.

BOLLING: And the NFL is a 501-C(3) charitable organization. Is that OK or is that not OK? I tend to think it's OK. I think every business should be a 501-C(3).

BECKEL: Sure you do.

BOLLING: That's "The Five." Don't forget to set your DVRs. Never miss an episode of "The Five." We'll see you back here on Monday. Have a great weekend.
