White House promotes 'ObamaLovesAmerica' hashtag

Rudy Giuliani doubles down on criticism; administration officials fire back


This is a rush transcript from "The Five," February 20, 2015. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

GUILFOYLE, CO-HOST: Hello, everyone. I'm Kimberly Guilfoyle along with Juan Williams, Jesse Waters, Stacey Dash and Greg Gutfeld. It's 5 o'clock in New York City and this is "The Five."

This week, Rudy Giuliani questioned President Obama's love for his country and he is not backing down.


RUDY GIULIANI, FORMER NEW YORK CITY MAYOR: If the president makes a speech and talks about what a great country this is, if the president could complete the following sentence, during the Crusades the Christians were barbarians and so were the Muslims. If the president could say Islamic fundamentalist terrorism is our enemy I will applaud the president. But until he does that, I will have doubt about his emotions, his feelings, his attitudes and the way in which he developed.


GUILFOYLE: Agree or disagree with the mayor? There is no doubt the president has been publicly critical of America to the rest of the world.


BARACK OBAMA, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: There have been times where America has shown arrogance and been dismissive, even derisive.

Americans are not your enemy. We sometimes make mistakes. We have not been perfect.

I realize that America's critics will be quick to point out that at times, we have failed to live up to our ideals, that America has plenty of problems within its own borders. This is true.


GUILFOYLE: Just before he took office then Senator Obama said this.


OBAMA: We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.


GUILFOYLE: So is it fair to question why he would want to transform a country that he himself has said he loved?

GREG GUTFELD, CO-HOST: To quote Reverend Wright, the chickens have come home to roost, but I throw that in there for the heck of it. I disagree with Rudy in the sense that I do believe the president loves his country, but he loves it in a different way. When we see America, we see the best thing in the world. When he sees America, he sees you know the world's angry aunt with a shotgun.


GUTFELD: Part of the family but always causing problems. It is not dislike, it's a patronizing superiority. The reason why it irritates me is he is saying we can do better. He is basically saying be like me. Be like me because I am better. He always wishes that America would reflect his progressive ideology and be more like Belgium or something more manageable and less aggressive and less arrogant than that angry aunt with the shot gun who is always showing up shooting at kids, playing their music too loud. He wants us to be likable and nice. That is why he brought up open change. So you can't blame Giuliani or anybody for that matter, for having some kind of suspicion that perhaps he doesn't like us as much as previous presidents. I would stop there.

GUILFOYLE: All right. Let's continue.


GUILFOYLE: I think it is a good ending.

GUILFOYLE: Giuliani also brought up the company that the president has kept. You get a sense in the measure of a person by the people they surround themselves with. The people we grow up with and the people we spend our time with, whether professionally or academically, can help shape us, our view points, our ideology. I think that is what people are responding to saying the president perhaps has a different view point in a way of looking at it. He doesn't seem to want to favor American exceptionalism. When you look back at the history, and see the people he has been in company with like Bill Ayers, like Reverend Wright, and it does give you pause.

JESSE WATERS, GUEST CO-HOST: Perhaps Obama loves America. He just has a funny way of showing it. If you look at the words he said and the deeds he has taken, he said it is not an exceptional nation. After Americans were killed he went golfing and to fund raisers. He called half of the country bitter clingers. He remembers he didn't like the way the flag pin after 9/11 because that was very offensive. He has opened the boarders. He has gone on apology tours. He has played the race card and like you said, he hangs out with these American-hating creatures and he hangs out with domestic terrorists. So a lot of the people that think the president doesn't like America -- I mean, there is a reason for that and he gives these ammunition to people.

GUILFOYLE: You look at these -- when you brought up Reverend Wright, Greg, this is a man that President Obama sat in the front row when this man was preaching, where he is saying things like not God bless America but God blank America. Take a look at him there. That is why people are upset. You say wait a second, you say what are you even condoning and hanging out with someone like this if you really love America.

STACEY DASH, GUEST CO-HOST: Let's be honest. If America were a woman, he would have kicked her out of bed by now. It's obvious.

GUILFOYLE: That would be awkward.

DASH: He does not love the country in its current state. He said he fundamentally wants to change the country. He overrides his military, his commanders-in-chief, in everything they want to do. He will not allow us to be the superpower that we are. He undermines every step of the way. He half-steps everything. That's not who we are. To me, that shows that he does not love this country.

GUILFOYLE: Let me ask you this. Why do you think people are so reluctant to take the president of the United States for his word when he says things like this?

DASH: Because he doesn't keep his word. He says he is going to do something and doesn't do it.

GUILFOYLE: All right, Juan, you are shaking your head. Your thoughts have been percolating.


JUAN WILLIAMS, CO-HOST: I am just like in awe of this kind of celebration of, you know, insulting the president of the United States when in fact.

GUILFOYLE: No one is insulting him.


WILLIAMS: Let me just tell you something, there's nothing wrong with being critical. But when the left was this kind of critical and demeaning of President Bush, I called them out. And I said you don't talk about the president of the United States in those terms. Now, here you are talking about.


WILLIAMS: Let me finish.

GUILFOYLE: No one is calling the president any names here. We are doing an analysis of his own words.


WILLIAMS: Let me repeat. Giuliani says the president doesn't love America. It seems that violates good taste and patriotic good sense to talk about our president in that way to the world. And you know, it is over the line for liberals when they were attacking Bush, and it's over the line.


GUILFOYLE: How about President Obama calling President Bush unpatriotic? How about that?

WILLIAMS: Let me just tell you something. This is divisive, this invites all kinds of racial tension. This seems to me is wrong headed.


WATTERS: No one introduced the race card until you just did.

GUILFOYLE: You brought it up.


GUILFOYLE: One at a time. One at a time.

WILLIAMS: Let me tell you something. A minute ago it was said at this table -- I think Giuliani he didn't grow up like the rest of us. If you don't grow up -- I guess I don't know where you are supposed to grow up and be exactly like this to be an American but gosh, difference is not allowed.

WATTERS: It doesn't have anything to do with race, Juan. I know you condemned things the right said about the left. I remember a long time ago, a few years ago -- actually, just a few years ago, when the Obama campaign arm said that Romney murdered a woman with cancer.


WATTERS: The left made a movie glamorizing the assassination of George W. Bush.


WATTERS: All of a sudden, someone questions the president's patriotism?

GUILFOYLE: Let me make a point that perhaps when he met America, he meant the actress America Ferrera.


DASH: That is who he kicked out of bed.

GUILFOYLE: I want to agree with Juan on a specific point about how to argue something. When Giuliani says something, does he confirm or does he convert anyone? There are three groups of people. There are people that already agree with you that Obama is a terrible president. There are people who don't agree with you who think he is doing a great job of a progressive leader and then there are people in the middle who are waiting to be convinced as the new election comes up as which direction the country is going. Questioning Obama's patriotism isn't exactly the right way to convert people. However, you can be persuasive focusing on his academic background, not race or religion, refocusing actions as they pertain to his past beliefs, the people he hung around with or the professors that he had. You can get to the same conclusion I believe without saying other things. By the way, what Giuliani says is great for FNC. It is great for talk television, but you don't win converts. You only confirm those with your assumptions.

WILLIAMS: Yeah, it seems like a divisive call attention to himself, more so than a real valid criticism of the president.


GUTFELD: But he started the sentence with I know this is going to be a terrible thing to say.


WILLIAMS: You know you are in trouble the minute you start down there.

GUILFOYLE: He was addressing a group of people that were probably supporters of Rudy and perhaps politically like-minded, has some of the same...


GUILFOYLE: Right. So the point is he is tailoring a speech. But nevertheless, he stands by his words. This is a very bright man.

WILLIAMS: I know that.

GUILFOYLE: One thing you don't doubt. I don't think anybody doubts whether Rudy Giuliani loves America or that he is a great patriot. He did great things for this country.

WILLIAMS: Now, I doubt if he loves the president.

GUILFOYLE: It is what it is.


WILLIAMS: He knew he didn't love the president. You never heard Rudy Giuliani when Wall Street threatened America's economic foundation -- oh you know, these bankers, these hedge fund guys, you know what? They are greedy and they're acting in the best interest of themselves, not America.


GUILFOYLE: No problem saying it.


GUILFOYLE: In the meantime, I'm taking this to the White House. Let's listen to Josh Earnest whether he feels sorry for Rudy Giuliani.


JOSH EARNEST, WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY: I don't have a direct response to Mr. Giuliani's comments. The truth is I don't take any joy or vindication or satisfaction from that. I think really the only thing that I feel is I feel sorry for Rudy Giuliani.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Do you think Rudy Giuliani has lost it?

EARNEST: I don't know.


GUILFOYLE: Those kinds of hard hitting questions. We just live and breathe from every day. What do you think? Inappropriate response or he just sort of blew it off the high road?

GUTFELD: I don't know. What are you going to do? This is a team sport. They just insulted his team captain. What is terrible about this story in a way is when you think about these two people how they can actually work together. President Obama and Rudy Giuliani are like a cop team in which one is the nice kind of wimpy cop and the other one is the guy who gets crapped done. It will be like L.A. Confidential. You put Obama out there to appease your adversaries and then Giuliani in the back waging a deliberate devastating waging war. We live in a country now where that is impossible.

DASH: With a sniper weapon.


WILLIAMS: I wish it was possible. I wish it was possible that instead of all these games, we actually got something done on immigration, on health care. I can go on.


WATTERS: The media is really in the tank here though, I mean to act like all outrage and then carry water for this guy. I remember when Sarah Palin was accused of having something to do with the shooting death of Gabby Giffords. The media you know brought that on that narrative, we had so many insulting things said by the left and the media is silent. Biden, members of the republicans want to put you guys back in chains. I didn't hear anything about that.


WATTERS: All of a sudden, some ex-mayor has beef with the president, and all hell breaks lose.

WILLIAMS: Oh, now, you are diminishing, minimizing Rudy Giuliani. I don't think this is good for your career.


GUILFOYLE: He has spoken for already. I think he is OK. Stacey, what do you think? What should the White House have said or done differently in response to this.

DASH: Maybe nothing. I think they should have done nothing, but I have to say I am greatly saddened by this president because he had a chance to unite us in such a profound way being the first black president and instead he did the exact opposite. We have never been more divided. I really don't think so.

WILLIAMS: He did it or Rudy did it?

DASH: The president.

WILLIAMS: Oh, Rudy is not even responsible for what Rudy said. It's now Obama. Let's blame Obama.


GUILFOYLE: She was speaking about a comment -- yeah, about the race thing when you brought up the race.

WILLIAMS: I didn't bring it up.


WILLIAMS: You have to be raised in a certain way, in a certain place, in a certain time, in a certain age, and that is who he is speaking to.


DASH: as a leader of the super power of the world, you are the commander- in-chief.


DASH: Right. So you should be able to unite people of your country that you are leading.

WILLIAMS: I think he does.


WATTERS: Most polarizing president in U.S. history.

WILLIAMS: Let me just say, when it comes to our military, I don't think there is any president who expressed himself better than President Obama in terms of support of military.

GUILFOYLE: You couldn't be more wrong.


GUILFOYLE: All right, Greg.

GUTFELD: I think that when you talk about there has always been an issue with the idea of unity, there is one side said he is unified and others say he is most divisive ever. What he really is he is like a high school coach who is also a teacher who has athletes in his class that he favors. So the athletes who are in his class can get away with more because he is also their coach. I think that's the problem.


WILLIAMS: Wait a second, who are the people he favors?

GUTFELD: I would say he favors what I would consider minority marginal classes that he thinks do not have power. He will always take the side of the powerless over the powerful.


GUTFELD: Would you debate that?

WILLIAMS: No, I think a lot of people would debate and say look, Wall Street is booming and look at the poverty rate in the country. There would be discussion about that. I think when you look at.


DASH: He did shrink the middle class.

WILLIAMS: There we go.

GUILFOYLE: Middle class is like on NutriSystem right now.

All right, next on The Five, it isn't just Hillary's foreign policy legacy that can hurt her in 2016. New revelations about her past that can be a major issue for her if she runs.

And later, you know it, Facebook Friday. Post a question for us now on


WATTERS: Well, the other cable networks obsessed over Rudy Giuliani's comments about Obama, they are barely covering a scandal involving a woman who could be the next president of the United States. Giuliani has gotten almost 3,000 mentions over the last two days. The story about Hillary Clinton just 13. The Wall Street Journal reports during Clinton's time as secretary of state, she pushed government to sign deals and change policies to the advantage of corporate giants, companies who then simultaneously donated millions to the Clinton Foundation and the charity is still taking money from foreign governments which Ron Fournier says is a clear conflict of interest if she is going to run in 2016.


RON FOURNIER, NATIONAL JOURNAL COLUMNIST: It's sleazy because of the perception. There is no way that you should have someone thinking about running for president taking money from foreign countries because it raises the level what is it they are expecting for that money? A couple of countries support terrorism. She is on record saying they support terrorism and yet, she is taking money from them. I just don't get it.


WATTERS: So Hillary is taking this secretive dark Arab world money and a lot of countries have spotty track records when it comes to terrorism and a lot can't drive.

GUILFOYLE: Human rights.

WATTERS: Yeah, human rights abuses. This doesn't look good. The Clinton Foundation has become kind of a slush fund, a little bit like a Super PAC slush fund. And they don't have to disclose any donors, any information, not as much as regular Super PAC. How damaging do you think this is to Hillary?

GUILFOYLE: I think if you are predisposed to not vote for her, you are like exactly what I was talking about. You can't wait to use that point with all your neighbors that are on the fence or completely in the bag for Hillary. I don't think it looks good. I mean, it (reeks) of impropriety.


GUILFOYLE: But you want to ask me a question? Is it legal? It's legal.


GUILFOYLE: To be able to get these donations, they are not breaking the law, so it is whether or not you find it to be morally or ethically.

WILLIAMS: Well, you know what? Some people might say ethically dubious. I say this is ethically wrong. This is not good.


WILLIAMS: This is insider access -- buying insider access to American politicians. And they know it's wrong because remember when she was secretary of state, the foundation stopped taking money from folks.

GUILFOYLE: Why is it OK now?

WILLIAMS: She says she is not officially a candidate. What are we, a bunch of fools? Of course, she is going to be the candidate.


WILLIAMS: So people are going to pay, so they can say we gave money and get access. You can see this already with American companies and also with foreign countries. Remember foreign countries are not supposed to make contributions to our politicians. But they can do it through this back door. I think this is influence peddling. That's what it is.


WILLIAMS: You talk about republicans going to attack her? You wait, democrats. New York Times editorial page.

GUILFOYLE: People with conscience. (CROSSTALK)

WILLIAMS: Yeah, because it is just wrong. You can't do that.


WATTERS: This is what they have been doing for years. We had the White Water, we had secret Chinese money pouring in 96.

DASH: A lot of money secrets.

WATTERS: Right, a lot of money secrets. They were basically running out of the White House with silverware and furniture. What is it with the Clintons with this money grubbing and kind of these ethical boundary violations?

DASH: They are like bank robbers or something, and get away with it.


DASH: It just shows what a hypocrite she is, even more so. I think it's good for us.

WATTERS: You think it's good? Gutfield, the Clinton Foundation has about $1.6 billion. So now, Bill, can afford to fly to Orgy island himself.


GUTFELD: I'm not certain that Hillary made billions but all of her pant suits are 100 percent spotted owl. Now when she throws a lamp at Bill, it's tiffany. That's good. You know what? Who knew she was such a fan of capitalism. My beef is that I'm totally OK with whatever you do. I'm OK with you getting rich. Don't condemn the rest of us for doing the same damn thing or trying to do the same thing. The progressive left, they love the rich as long as those who are rich prevent others from doing the same thing. That is whey you have so many left wing billionaires clamping down at everybody else because that makes the left happy. So it is hypocrisy of it all and it makes me sick to my stomach.

GUILFOYLE: Somebody bring in the Pepcid AC.

GUTFELD: Oh, a number of things.


WATTERS: Isn't this how government works, Juan? I mean, people go in there, people get into office, they convince foreign governments for these contracts for multinationals and then get a kick back when they run for reelection? Isn't this how the whole system works?

WILLIAMS: You are such a cynic young man.


WILLIAMS: I just think it's rotten that she thinks that everybody else is just blind to this reality. By the way, they weren't trying to hide it. You can go on the website, just shake it out, and then tell you about this money coming in. I think they thought no big deal. It's OK. Well, it's not OK. It's not about the rich. I don't know that the rich have such foundations. From the democratic side, people are worried about Hillary Clinton's relationship to Wall Street all these years that she is too much in the company and in supportive of big corporations and Wall Street. She was New York's senator. And this just amplified. This is food not just for republicans but for Elizabeth Warren to say hey, as a populous what are we doing with a candidate who is in bed with all big money companies in the United States as well as everybody else.


GUTFELD: It is interesting. She is in bed with the companies and Bill is in bed with the company.

WILLIAMS: But Stacey is kicking them out of bed.


WILLIAMS: That is Obama.

WATTERS: Thank you very much. Still ahead, Facebook Friday.


WATTERS: Looking forward to answering questions up next. Geraldo takes on the hip hop community for hearing the black community, is he right? We'll debate.


WILLIAMS: I said it before and I will say it again. Rappers like Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg and others are hurting the black community by promoting a hip- hop culture that is dysfunctional and does not value education, character and family. Geraldo Rivera made a similar comment earlier this week.


GERALDO RIVERA, FOX NEWS: Hip hop has done more damage to black and brown people than -- than racism in the last ten years.

I love Russell Simmons. He's a dear friend of mine. I admire his business acumen. At some point those guys have to cop to the fact that, by encouraging this distinctive culture that is removed from the mainstream, they have encouraged people to be so different from the mainstream that they can't participate other than, you know, the racks in the garment center and those entry-level jobs. And I -- I lament it.


WILLIAMS: Lament it? I tell you what, it makes me cry, Geraldo. Geraldo, first of all, you're right, brother. You have exactly spoken the truth and put yourself at risk for all those clowns out there who are going to say, "Geraldo went against hip hop, and so he's not hip and he's not happening."

Well, here's what's hip and happening. In hip-hop culture you can demean and play to the worst racial stereotypes of black people and say you're celebrating black culture. You can make black men out to be nothing but sexual deviants. You can say about black women they're nothing but a bunch of hos and bitches, and then say, "Yes, I'm keeping it real."

You're not keeping it real. All you're doing is playing to young people who are most vulnerable, oftentimes coming from broken families, don't have strong role models. And instead they're looking at someone like Snoop Dogg, and Snoop Dogg is talking about can you control your ho? And yes, it's all right to slap your bitch. And they say that's what it means to be a real black man? That's what's going on.

How about Nelly? The people, the young black women at Spelman College back in '05 had to say no to Nelly when he wanted to come down and have a concert. Why? Because he said, "You know what? Take your credit card and swipe it" -- I won't even go into the details but through a part of the female anatomy, like she's in a strip club.

Now, you tell me: That's helping black culture? That's helping black culture? Stacey, I'm -- you know what? I'm strong on this one, because it just -- it infuriates me.

GUTFELD: So you disagree with Geraldo?

WILLIAMS: God bless Geraldo.

DASH: I disagree with Geraldo. And coming from a hip-hop family, my cousin is Damon Dash. He started Rockefeller records with Jay-Z. I know for a fact that this is a way for men to legitimize their lives, make their lives legitimate through art. And it sells, and it makes money and it's capitalist, capitalization. Capitalizing on what you have, what your life has given you.

And some of the messages, yes, they very, you know, not good towards women and family but some of the messages are about working hard, doing what you have to do to achieve. You know, you're looking at all of the negatives. There are a lot of positives. And not only poor kids listen to rap music. I know every single one of us here listened to rap music.

WATTERS: I grew up listening to rap music. I wanted to be black.

GUILFOYLE: No, Vanilla Ice.

WATTERS: For two years in middle school, I wanted to be black. I had the starter jacket. I had the L.A. Kings hat. It was the most embarrassing thing of my entire life.

GUILFOYLE: It is worse now. You just told everyone.

WATTERS: And you know what? But I didn't get any tattoos. My parents kept me in check. I didn't break any laws or anything like that. And then I got out of that phase, and then I worked for FOX News.

GUILFOYLE: Now you know O'Reilly's game and you've got a hashtag on your head.

WATTERS: Right. But I don't think rap is -- I think it's the symptom. I don't know if it's the disease. A lot of problems in the community, family, economy.

WILLIAMS: Wait, wait, wait. Let's go to the man who is on -- at this table who's an expert on American culture, Dr. Gregory Gutfeld.

GUTFELD: I agree with our very clueful person, not clueless. Because I feel that -- I feel that the same criticism was wielded at Sinatra, the Rolling Stones, punk rock and Goth and death metal. It has a lot to do with the apparel and the way people look.

And I agree with you. You can't dress like a Goth or a gang banger and get a job at the Apple store. But you've got to be smart enough to figure that out.

Does hip-hop contribute to certain kind of behaviors? Well, the fact is, the people that listen to hip-hop the most are white people. There are more white people buying this. But to Juan's point, whenever there is a lifestyle that has some sort of risk that is glorified.

There are certain elements of the population that don't have the luxury of a safety net. They don't have wealthy parents who can get them into good colleges. They don't have power or status. So a white kid can listen to NWA all through college and get a great job. But a black kid that age may not have the same opportunities and may end up -- I don't know -- still listening to that into his 30s and 40s. But it is about rebelling against the norm that's what it's always been in...

WILLIAMS: I'm all for teen rebellion. But I mean, I'm all for wearing the starter jacket and the hat backwards and having his pants hanging down.

GUTFELD: I don't want to see that.

WILLIAMS: You don't want to see that?

GUTFELD: I don't want to see that.

WILLIAMS: I'm cool with my brother here, Mr. Jesse "Black Man" Watters. But I must tell you, it's different for that kid that you're talking about, the kid who thinks it's the big deal to buy the sneakers, to have the hub caps and spin around, that kid's wasting his life. And he thinks...

GUILFOYLE: But you also have to have -- listen, but you can't blame music and artistic expression, just like you would blame a famous artist for, you know, a controversial painting suggesting violence. The point is, you have to have individual choice. OK?

Yes, there are people who have different opportunities and very blessed, more than others. But nevertheless, it doesn't mean that you cannot succeed in life despite your background or some of the opportunities you have available.

The only issue I have with the music is the violence and promoting domestic violence towards women, because I saw too many horrific cases working as a prosecutor in the L.A. D.A.'s office and the gang cases that I handled. That part bothers me, but again, I look to the individual. Got to make the choice. Nobody makes you...

WILLIAMS: All right. Now what's coming up next, Kimberly? This is your favorite part of the week.

GUILFOYLE: "Facebook Friday," baby.

WILLIAMS: Tell them about it.

WILLIAMS: "Facebook Friday" is coming at you.


GUTFELD: It's time now for "Facebook Friday," sponsored by William Devane. We've got your questions. I'm William Devane. This is my big house.

GUILFOYLE: You know I love his show.

GUTFELD: I know you do.

GUILFOYLE: I can't help it.

WILLIAMS: More than Jack Keane (ph)?

GUTFELD: All right. I'm supposed to get this rolling.

GUILFOYLE: I love Jack Keane (ph).

GUTFELD: Why don't I do this. Stacey, first question from Nick J. "What's your drink of choice when you're out at the bar and why?"

DASH: Johnny Walker Blue.



DASH: It's fast. Gets to the point.

GUTFELD: I like the way you do your business.

GUILFOYLE: I have been out with here. She has that.

GUTFELD: You can stand behind her and worry she's not going to order a mojito.

Jesse, this is from Karen R. "Do people say you look like Ross on friends?"

WATTERS: I say Ross on "Friends" looks like me. And I actually ran into him on "O'Reilly" one time, and I go, "David Schwimmer, do you mind if we get a picture together?"

And he goes, "Oh, sure."

I said, "I bet a lot of guys don't ask you that."

And he goes, "Yes, you're the first guy."

GUTFELD: But the great thing now is you're both living together, which is fantastic.

WATTERS: It's us and Rachel.

GUTFELD: Yes, exactly. Rachel being your dog.

WILLIAMS: Oh, my God.

GUTFELD: Juan, this is from Sandy B. "How do you feel about your son being Republican, and do you talk politics?"

WILLIAMS: Yes, at the top of our lungs. We scream at each other. No, I think he's a terrific guy and a real asset for that party. Just, you know, on some issues it's hard. I'm telling you, it's hard.

GUTFELD: Nothing like talking to a guy smarter than you, right?

WILLIAMS: That's my problem with you. The thing is I can't throw turkey at you without consequences. I have to behave here.

GUTFELD: I'll catch it with my mouth.

GUILFOYLE: You should be very proud of him.

GUTFELD: I have a lot of practice.

Kimberly, this -- this question sounds like you wrote it.

GUILFOYLE: What is it?

GUTFELD: From Stuart: "Kimberly, while looking up something else the other day" -- just by accident, mind you -- "I noticed that George Clooney's paternal grandmother was a Guilfoyle. This isn't a very common name. Are you related?"

GUILFOYLE: Answer...


GUILFOYLE: ... yes.

GUTFELD: I do think this is a setup.

GUILFOYLE: It's not a setup. I swear to God.


GUILFOYLE: But this is true, because in Ireland where I'm from, the southern part of Ireland in Clare, so yes, apparently, we're related. It is very -- there was nothing weird going on. It's OK. No one needs to call the authorities. The source and I are friends.

GUTFELD: Well, we know. We know. We know the real story about George. You know what I'm saying?

All right. This is for me from Corrine. "Do you have a date night with your wife and if so what do you do?" A, no. B, none of your business if I did. I hate dates. It was disgusting -- it is a fruit.

WILLIAMS: How did you meet her if you never went on a date?

GUTFELD: We went on dates, but I don't have a date night.

GUILFOYLE: No, but that's his wedding picture. You understand? Like, that's what's so funny.


GUTFELD: We got married at city hall.

GUILFOYLE: Look at him. He's like where am I?


GUILFOYLE: Are you on LSD in that picture?

GUTFELD: The guy on the left...

WATTERS: Pixilated.

GUTFELD: No. He's my best man. We call him blurry.

WILLIAMS: Yes, but I must say, that wife is good-looking. Holy smokes. You did well, son.

GUTFELD: Thank you. All right. Next question, to Stacey from Tucker.

DASH: Yes.

GUTFELD: "Does it bother you when people say you are wrong for being a black woman Republican?"

DASH: No it does not.



GUTFELD: That's good.

WILLIAMS: That was Tucker Carlson.


All right, Jesse, what's your -- This is from Brittany: "What's one of your favorite things about Bill O'Reilly?"

WATTERS: Where do I begin? How long do we have?

GUTFELD: Good answer.

WATTERS: We could be here all day, Brittany.

GUTFELD: His sparkling face.

GUILFOYLE: Look at them. The two of them together.

WATTERS: You know what I like about him? I like his patience. He's cool, calm. Very patient man.

GUILFOYLE: What are you saying?

WILLIAMS: What are you doing?

GUILFOYLE: "Watters' World" has just been canceled.

GUTFELD: All right, Jesse.

WATTERS: Just kidding, though. I love everything about him.

GUTFELD: That's great.

All right. Where are we? Juan...


GUTFELD: ... "Please name your hero and why." This is from Beverly.


GUTFELD: Yes. And why?

WILLIAMS: Gosh, well, I think Greg Gutfeld, Jesse Watters, Stacey Dash, Kimberly Gutfeld, all heroes.

GUILFOYLE: Kimberly Gutfeld? We're not married.

WILLIAMS: Yes, yes.

GUILFOYLE: Thurgood Marshall.

WILLIAMS: I wrote a book about Thurgood.

GUILFOYLE: That's why I'm saying that.

WILLIAMS: He's a real hero.

You know, the funny thing about it is sometimes the people that I think are heroes are not well-known to the public, but I think they are people of character and virtue and self-sacrifice. So I mean, those are the kind of people I look up to.

GUTFELD: Yes, all right. But enough about Charles Manson.


GUILFOYLE: What else have you got for me?

GUTFELD: Randy B. -- probably another fake question -- "Why are you so beautiful?" No.


GUTFELD: "What is your most favorite comfort food?"

GUILFOYLE: Oh, my God. How much time do we have? So...

GUTFELD: A minute.

GUILFOYLE: ... I love, you know, red beans and rice and miss me (ph), if you know what I'm saying. But besides that, I love chicken wings, as you know from our Fourth of July. I love polenta. I love grits. I, for sure, love bacon. I love steak and potatoes. I mean, yes. And I love seven- layer nacho dip, too. That's a good one and artichoke dips.

GUTFELD: All right. Well, that was interesting.

This is to me from Rita D. "Are you an only child?" No. I actually have three older sisters.

WATTERS: You can tell.

GUTFELD: The youngest. It was great. When you're the youngest boy with three older sisters, you get away with a lot. But you also see a lot of things that you should never see.

WATTERS: But then you've got the sleepover factor.

GUTFELD: One of the most amazing experiences ever, especially if you're not prepared for it, when you're in that awkward stage of puberty, and all of a sudden, there are these weird creatures running around your house. It's not a good thing.

GUILFOYLE: Greg, I forgot something. Addendum: my favorite comfort food is Jacob's Pickles.

GUTFELD: Oh, that's good.

GUILFOYLE: No, that's...

GUTFELD: You know the show couldn't go on.

GUILFOYLE: It's a restaurant. Upper West Side. The control room is saying to me, totally agree. It's amazing. My favorite place. Upper West Side.

WATTERS: She loves pickles.

GUILFOYLE: You can get all those things on one plate.

GUTFELD: You love Jacob's pickle.

GUILFOYLE: No pickles.

GUTFELD: Oh, sorry. All right. We've got to go.

Our pre-Oscar party is next. Why did I say that dumb joke?


DASH: The 87th Academy Awards is Sunday. One of the most anticipated categories is Best Picture. Eight films are nominated, including "American Sniper" and "Selma." Which one do we hope gets the Oscar? Greg.

GUTFELD: Well, first of all, the one that I wanted to win didn't get nominated. It's "Predestination," a great time travel film with Ethan Hawke.

But I've seen every movie but two. The moving about Stephen Hawking that everybody says is a romance with his wife, even though they got divorced later. And then I haven't seen "Selma."

I loved "Whiplash." "Whiplash," by the way, is a great message film. The villain, played by J.K. Simmons, is one that you actually like, because even though he's evil, he's right. He has this great quote. You should all remember this. "There are no two words in the English language more harmful than 'good job.'" It's basically an indictment on self-esteem, and it's great.

"Boyhood" was a fantastic achievement. I love that movie, too. But I would like to see "Whiplash" win.

DASH: Kimberly.

GUILFOYLE: Yes. I'm all in on "American Sniper." I love the film. I would see it again. I'd recommend it to anyone who hasn't seen it yet. I think it's a great tale of this country, and it has all of the elements to it. It's not just, you know, OK, pro-military. It's about the sacrifice. It's about what happens with their families, the loss of what they go through to really understand.

That's why people love this country, because when you come here and you put it on the line, like our men and women do in the military, you understand that true, like, devotion and passion for our patriotism in this great country. No place like it in the world.

WILLIAMS: Well, if you're going to Vegas this weekend, put your money on "Birdman."

WATTERS: Oh, Juan. You heard it here first.

WILLIAMS: I'm telling you. I don't think there's much question. You know the problem that I hear about people talking about "Boyhood," which I think is wonderful, because I like the whole idea of watching a kid grow up. But with "Birdman," actually, it's such an unusual way that they film it, such a -- I mean, and it speaks to all the egos in Hollywood. I know you think it was self-focused.

DASH: Self-indulgent.

WILLIAMS: But in terms of "Boyhood," the criticism is that you give somebody 12 years, they could make the same movie.

GUTFELD: Yes, but it was done first.

WATTERS: Yes. I just want to see "American Sniper" win, because I want to see the look on Michael Moore's face.


WATTERS: That's all I want to say.

GUTFELD: You won't be able to, because it will be covered with pie.

DASH: I would like to say who I want to win. "American Sniper."

GUILFOYLE: Yes, good. I wish we were voting.

DASH: Me, too. "One More Thing" is up next. Thank you.

GUILFOYLE: Thank you.


GUILFOYLE: It's time now for "One More Thing." Juan Williams, what you got?

WILLIAMS: Well, FOX News goes behind enemy lines to bring you this picture of Kim Jong-un at Wednesday's politburo meeting in North Korea. What's with those Dr. Evil sculpted eyebrows? What's with the "Eraserhead" here? We don't know! We don't know! We've got to figure it out. It must mean something.

WATTERS: Oh, my gosh.


WILLIAMS: Goodness.

GUTFELD: I find him very attractive.

GUILFOYLE: You would. OK. Greg.

GUTFELD: I'm going to be on "O'Reilly" tonight. The actual show, I might add.

GUILFOYLE: Oh, my God.

GUTFELD: And it's -- it's a very special episode.

Also, I'm banning a phrase: "I don't disagree." When you're saying, "I don't disagree," you'd save a lot more time if you say, "I agree." Don't say, "I don't disagree."

Stop looking at me.

GUILFOYLE: Oh, my God. You were looking at yourself. It was getting weird.

All right. So this is a little, like we had time or money for an expensive graphic. "K.G.'s Tips," mm-hmm. As it comes to the royal family, which Greg loves, President Obama will be hosting Prince Charles and his wife Camilla at the White House on March 19. So, as you recall, I did also host the royal couple on...

GUTFELD: Oh, jeez.

GUILFOYLE: There we go.

GUTFELD: Any opportunity you can show that picture...

GUILFOYLE: And the royals. You know how I love them. So they're going to visit. The duchess will visit with them in the U.S., March 17th through the 20th. They'll see the president, and this is part of the whole partnership between the U.K., our great ally, and the U.S.

So I just want to let you know that they love great home-cooked food and organic and naturally grown...

GUTFELD: No one cares.

GUILFOYLE: ... is their favorite. They do.

GUTFELD: No one cares.

GUILFOYLE: This is the way to their hearts. So make sure and do that.

GUTFELD: And no one cares.

GUILFOYLE: Get the White House chef in gear.

But everyone cares besides you.

OK, Jesse.

WATTERS: OK. So "Watters' World" goes all over the world and we cause trouble. And we only show you about four minutes each Monday. But a lot of stuff we don't show you, there's a reason for that. It's because it embarrasses me. I commit a lot of bloopers and make a lot of mistakes. So tonight on the "O'Reilly Factor," we're going to give you a little taste of what you're going to see. The outtakes edition. Roll it.


WATTERS: Very distracting playing with you.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: It's a bit nipply out. Nippy out.


WATTERS: It takes a very secure person to show all the bloopers. So tonight you'll get to see that.

GUILFOYLE: That's pretty funny.

All right, Stacey. What have you got?

DASH: Yes, there is a new show on SyFy based on the blockbuster, "12 Monkeys." It has action. It has time travel. Yes, produced by a friend of mine, Paul Shapiro. You should watch it, 9 p.m. Fridays. On SyFy.

GUILFOYLE: If you're in it, we would watch.

DASH: Thank you. There you go.

GUILFOYLE: All right. And also, tell everybody you're on "Hannity" later tonight. On the "O'Reilly" show.

GUTFELD: With Bernie McGuirk. And it's an interesting one.

GUILFOYLE: All right. And I'm going to be in for Greta tonight.

WILLIAMS: I'll watch that, for sure. But I've got a question. Do the royals live together?


GUTFELD: Oh, wow.

GUILFOYLE: And they are deeply in love.


GUILFOYLE: Set your DVR so you never miss an episode of this craziness. That's it for us. Have a great weekend. "Special Report," you know it's next.
