KIMBERLY GUILFOYLE, CO-HOST: Hello, everyone. Happy St. Paddy's Day, I'm Kimberly Guilfoyle along with Juan Williams, Eric Bolling, Dana Perino and Greg Gutfeld. It is 5 o'clock in New York City and this is "The Five."
It is March 17th and it is one of my favorite days of the year, St. Patrick's Day. I'm half Irish as you know and half Puerto Rican, a very lucky lady indeed. And we'll going to have a Paddy's Day party, right here, right now, in a moment; but first, look at how folks to celebrate in a holiday, right here in New York City.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

(END VIDEO CLIP)
GUILFOYLE: Oh my God, that was a fantastic package, wasn't it, everybody?
DANA PERINO, CO-HOST: Fabulous. Well done.
GUILFOYLE: (inaudible), get little green hearts for both of you. Thank you so much, so much, so much. All right, so I love today, big time. And what's especially delightful today is that the blue skies came out to warm the green hearts. Everybody's feeling themselves a little bit Irish today. One of my favorite thing is this delicious milkshake. Do you guys know about this, from McDonald's?
ERIC BOLLING, CO-HOST: Is it in the A-block, really?
GREG GUTFELD, CO-HOST: All right.
GUILFOYLE: No, this is a true story.
GUTFELD: What do you support?
GUILFOYLE: So all the time I would have these green shakes, but now it's --
GUTFELD: But you not even know the name of it, Kimberly.
GUILFOYLE: A McShake.
GUTFELD: No. It's called the Shamrock Shake.
GUTFELD: . and that's not a Shamrock Shake.
GUILFOYLE: Yes, it is. Mine is a little white. His is greener, OK.
GUILFOYLE: Black Irish over here.
GUTFELD: That's (inaudible).
GUILFOYLE: So what happen is, you can drink this and it's very delicious, but you can have a problem later on. You know what I'm saying? But don't be alarm.
GUILFOYLE: Because it might be the food coloring in it.
GUTFELD: It's not food coloring.
GUILFOYLE: Do not call your doctor.
GUTFELD: It is not food coloring. It is frog urine.
GUILFOYLE: Oh God.
GUTFELD: By the way, it is because it is green.
GUTFELD: . it counts as a vegetable. So you can have.
GUILFOYLE: I was asking you if this is Atkins. I don't know if it is working out. We also have green doughnuts here, which are delicious. I mean, come on, Dunkin' Donuts, corned beef and cabbage with potatoes -- delicious.
GUTFELD: Not Irish.
GUILFOYLE: He loves Langan's.
GUTFELD: Not Irish.
GUILFOYLE: Don't ruin my holiday.
GUTFELD: From a -- it's from kosher butchers who gave it to the Irish in New York.
GUILFOYLE: OK. We have a hater at the table. Someone calls security.
GUTFELD: No I just -- that's a fact.
GUILFOYLE: Yeah. OK, right.
GUTFELD: In Ireland they have lamb or bacon. But they don't have corned beef and cabbage. That is from the kosher butchers in New York who gave it to the Irish.
GUILFOYLE: My, gosh. Somebody give him later with green eggs. OK, besides that of ruining my beautiful presentation, we have something for those of you who are little bit more hipsters and you would like to celebrate the whole Irish St. Patrick's Day thing. We have some leafy greens and salads with some; apparently, there are now corned beef taquito things.
GUILFOYLE: Like spring rolls.
PERINO: Spring rolls. It's a -- that's a fusion cuisine.
GUILFOYLE: Fusion cuisine. I think Dana Perino would like it down.
PERINO: Very hip, very hip.
GUILFOYLE: All right, my little lass, what do you think?
PERINO: Well --
PERINO: What I.
PERINO: . think that -- I like that. I'll be your lass.
GUTFELD: I'll be your little lass, all right.
GUILFOYLE: Little lass.
GUILFOYLE: I guess that a lot.
GUILFOYLE: Yeah, yeah, yeah.
PERINO: So -- yes, it's one holiday.
PERINO: One of the things I love is that it's always right around spring time. So spring is around the corner. I just had blue skies today, it was slightly warmer. It's always gonna be my sister's birthday. My sister's birthday is on Monday.
GUILFOYLE: Happy Birthday.
PERINO: And she will be bringing this back up again and again, the next few days. And my mom would make corned beef and cabbage. So, I don't know if we ever got the potatoes.
PERINO: Like corned beef and cabbage my mom would do. And she's very good at it.
GUILFOYLE: OK. And it is all particularly tasty with some mustard.
PERINO: And sauerkraut.
GUILFOYLE: Yes, if you like that. I mean, I think it's great. I look forward to it all the time.
PERINO: Would you like me to serve you?
GUILFOYLE: I would love it, actually.
GUILFOYLE: Thanks so much, because I'm trying to do the job here.
PERINO: And this is Atkins.
GUILFOYLE: . interfering with my -- oh yes, that absolutely right. So Juanito, what do you like being black Irish? What do you like about St. Patrick's Day?
JUAN WILLIAMS, CO-HOST: Well, there's so much to like. So I remember when my --
GUILFOYLE: And I like -- what?
WILLIAMS: Yeah, so when my son was born.
GUILFOYLE: I'm black Irish too.
WILLIAMS: . I remember my parents came down to D.C. And the only thing that they really enjoyed was going to the St. Patrick's Day parade. They cut right along Pennsylvania -- well constitution, right along -- and it is a huge parade. And then they have one over in Alexandria, Virginia; even bigger on the weekend. And people bring out -- I don't know why, there's a parade of Scottie dogs.
WILLIAMS: Yeah. Greg, they all dressed up, pretty cool. But if you're in Chicago --
WILLIAMS: They paint the river goes green.
GUILFOYLE: Did you see that? I thought it was so cute.
WILLIAMS: I think it is pretty amazing. I don't understand it. And of course, I love the history. I love the idea of people, Irish people standing up for themselves in the United States which is where this was really born.
GUILFOYLE: My God, It's so good.
WILLIAMS: It's a celebration of Americans of Irish roots.
BOLLING: I'm from Chicago. That river is --
BOLLING: It's just green on St. Patrick's Day.
BOLLING: That's it that --
WILLIAMS: Most of the time that kind of a year.
GUTFELD: That's really green.
WILLIAMS: I didn't think it was naturally green, Eric. Although, you know what kind of guy Bolling is? When I was a kid in the school yard, Bolling is the kind of the guy in St. Patrick's Day would say, hey, Juan, you don't have any green on -- boom, that has -- or pinch. Pinch, pinch, pinch.
GUILFOYLE: Bolling is the kind of guy that celebrates St. Patrick's Day -- everyone's day or Thursday.
BOLLING: But you know --
BOLLING: No, it's a Thursday, mostly. But, go ahead.
GUTFELD: No, I was going to say. Juan brings up a good point. This is more about America than Ireland. America takes something that's solemn. It was like a religious holiday. The pubs were actually closed on --
PERINO: That's true.
GUTFELD: On St. Patrick's Day.
GUILFOYLE: That's true.
GUTFELD: And America turns it into a vast party. Especially in New York where people who aren't Irish, take the day-off, they're usually drunk stockbrokers, they're urinating on my front porch.
GUILFOYLE: It's all about your (inaudible).
GUTFELD: And that's what happened.
PERINO: Get off my porch!
GUTFELD: No, the problem is, it has turned into something different in New York. It's a lot of drunks.
WILLIAMS: Yesterday, you said something that was clear to me all day walking around here.
WILLIAMS: There a lot of kids. High school kids.
WILLIAMS: . and college kids who decide this is an opportunity for debauchery, straight out.
GUILFOYLE: Oh God.
GUTFELD: I did it.
WILLIAMS: I saw one of them throwing up, Kimberly.
GUILFOYLE: Where, over here?
WILLIAMS: Right over here.
GUILFOYLE: Oh gosh, that's not good.
GUTFELD: I think it was Kilmeade.
GUILFOYLE: You should probably eat something first. That's the problem, right? But I -- so I love Ireland, everybody knows, right? So I grew up living in Ireland every summer since I was 5 years of age.
WILLIAMS: That's so young.
GUILFOYLE: Yes. I have a kilt, cute little outfit. You would love it.
PERINO: Is it the bag pipes?
PERINO: I hate the bag pipes.
GUILFOYLE: But I've got pipes.
BOLLING: You know what I did this morning?
BOLLING: I went to --
GUILFOYLE: Look at the view of (inaudible) in the background.
BOLLING: St. Patrick's Cathedral.
GUTFELD: There you go.
BOLLING: On St. Patrick's Day.
PERINO: Just now?
BOLLING: No. At 9 o'clock this morning and.
PERINO: Yeah, you got there before the (inaudible).
BOLLING: And Cardinal Dolan was saying mass.
PERINO: How nice.
BOLLING: That was very special. That's fantastic.
GUILFOYLE: I think it is great. That is true. One of the things that Irish people would love to do and then love St. Patrick, (inaudible) if you go mass today to celebrate St. Patrick's with very --
BOLLING: Woodpack (ph) on St. Patrick's was standing room only.
PERINO: But I didn't know until today that he was originally -- he was English.
GUTFELD: Yeah, British.
PERINO: I learn that today.
GUILFOYLE: Yes. And then brought over to Ireland and devoted himself to Christianity and to spreading it in Ireland.
GUTFELD: He did not chase the snakes out. That was a metaphor for what, because he as converting people to Christianity. That was the metaphor is that he will be was chasing the snakes out.
GUILFOYLE: That's true.
GUTFELD: So that was, it never really happened. You know what great question? This guy, writer Andrew Clark posted this, he says, "On college campuses, you throw if you throw a Mexican party, like a --
GUTFELD: It's like a teatro (ph).
GUTFELD: . and wear sombrero.
GUTFELD: You're in a big trouble, or a Cinco de Mayo party, for example. But you can do whatever you want and actually use stereo type that are kind of damaging. I mean the idea that for St. Patrick's Day, people go out and get wasted is kind of a damaging stereo type, but nobody cares because you can't use it as a position of punishment. Like you can -- like a campus -- on campus, you can't like condemn St. Patrick's Day, because nobody will listen to you because you're too busy having fun.
WILLIAMS: Well, I don't -- I think it is a little different. You know, I always -- I think Irish people were stereo typed and denigrated for a long time. The Kennedy brothers held this to heart forever. I think it's the root of the immigration --
GUILFOYLE: And the Irish got over it. They don't run around going Irish, why this matter.
WILLIAMS: But you know, but if you say this.
GUILFOYLE: Am I right?
WILLIAMS: . like Notre Dame Team is called the fight in Irish.
WILLIAMS: And you are supposed to be, get your Irish up.
WILLIAMS: And you're supposed to be temperamental like that.
BOLLING: Are you against that?
WILLIAMS: I don't think Irish people care. I don't think anybody --
BOLLING: Nobody I knew against it.
WILLIAMS: That all, I don't like
WILLIAMS: If the Irish people were upset and thought that they're in stereotypes, I would be --
BOLLING: So good. That's your problem with the Reds, right?
GUILFOYLE: I have the most amazing cheer leading costume for the -- with Notre Dame, but I put little shamrocks on my -- so cute. It was just we have an agreement.
PERINO: And what's the name of the young actress star in -- that stars in the movie Brooklyn? She has a difficult name to say. She's very good. Saoirse Ronan. I don't know if I'm saying that correctly. That's a lot -- there's a lot talents that comes out of Ireland. I think she is one of the bright young stars that you'll see a lot of her in the future. She's the star of the Brooklyn that just came out. And I don't know if it won an academy award. She was nominated and she deserved it. She was very good.
GUTFELD: Oh well, that's -- there you go.
PERINO: So there. That's my little contribution.
GUTFELD: Yeah. I guess that's a contribution.
GUILFOYLE: Well, and we were showing also in the background, pictures that all of our fans and viewers were sending in. Did you see that?
PERINO: The dog's cute.
GUILFOYLE: Look at that cute little dog. Everybody loves to celebrate St. Patrick's -- I'm not sure what the dog's name, it was cute. But look at this little baby love right here, with little Shamrock stuff on.
PERINO: Lot's of dog in costume.
GUTFELD: You at home are looking at something, a screen within a screen.
GUILFOYLE: Well, all I'm saying is the rest of you are missing out on this feast and I've had an amazing time. I ate the potatoes. I ate the corned beef --
GUTFELD: Dunkin' Donuts. These are Dunkin' Donuts --
GUILFOYLE: Did you like them?
GUTFELD: It looks interesting.
PERINO: Do you want to eat it?
GUTFELD: No. No.
PERINO: Yes, you do.
GUTFELD: I'm no --
GUILFOYLE: No. He's trying to --
GUTFELD: I would say it's Shamrock Shake. But this, I don't think it's a Shamrock Shake anymore.
GUILFOYLE: He's trying to --
GUTFELD: They changed it.
GUILFOYLE: Yes, it is.
GUTFELD: No. I think they've changed the ingredients. You never had red stuff on a Shamrock Shake.
GUILFOYLE: The taste is great. That's like the cherry juice or something whatever.
PERINO: Well done KG.
GUILFOYLE: All right.
GUILFOYLE: One more bites for the road (inaudible).
GUILFOYLE: Next, the left of viewers to be getting very worried about the prospect of a Trump presidency. Juan will tell us what he's been hearing from some of his liberal sources. And we go to break. Yesterday, we asked you to pick our music for today's show. So let's kick it off. With this song sent in John M. for me -- back in the moment.
GUTFELD: Juan, easy.
WILLIAMS: Love it, love it. That song picked by D.V., great choice. We turn now to the presidential race and the growing cries from the left about Donald Trump. High ranking democrats are sounding the alarms about the front-runner. They're calling him dangerous and a threat to the country. And today, Senate minority leader Harry Reid, blamed the GOP for his rise.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
HARRY REID, SENATE MINORITY LEADER: The republican establishment acts bewildered, but they should not be bewildered. As much as they try to distance themselves from Trump now, republican leaders are responsible for his rise. For eight years they drained all the oxygen from a policy debate in this country by replacing thoughtful engagement with resentment and with hatred. This is exactly the kind of mindless behavior that has hollowed out our political debate and created the conditions for Trump to rise.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
WILLIAMS: It's also being reported today that President Obama will soon start to engage more aggressively in the election to help democrats keep the White House. Here he is weighing in on the state of the GOP race.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
BARACK OBAMA, UNITED STATES PRESIDENT: I have been blamed by republicans for a lot of things, but being blamed for their primaries and who they're selecting for their party -- is novel. What you're seeing within the Republican Party is, to some degree, all those efforts over a course of time, creating an environment where someone like a Donald Trump can thrive.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
WILLIAMS: Wow. So what we see, and I can tell you this is so true, Eric. Democrats have gone from talking about Trump as their problem or a strange phenomenon to, oh, my God, this guy could actually win. And so they're thinking about with how do you deal with Donald Trump? I mean, this is becoming now for democrats like a moment.
BOLLING: The same thing that Rubio and the rest of republican --
BOLLING: Dealing with for the last nine months. Look, there is a theory, don't punch down, right? You know there, you don't punch down.
BOLLING: So, if they -- as President Obama highlights or Harry Reid highlights, you know, it's Trump, and he is not that big of a threat. Then they shouldn't be talking about it. But clearly, he's up in their heads.
WILLIAMS: Oh, no, no, no.
BOLLING: And he's rattling around in there and they were worried.
BOLLING: So what now?
BOLLING: You know, in fact, they're experiencing everything that the GOP establishment has experienced for nine months. They all, he's not going to be a threat. You know, the head-to-heads are -- he is no threat to the democrats. Well, they thought the same thing too. He wasn't going to run and he wasn't going to win. He ran, he's winning, and now they're going, wow, we didn't see that coming. Democrats are realizing the same thing might be coming their way.
GUILFOYLE: And they seem to be very worried and concerned about it, because he is. He is like that x-factor among of unpredictability were you not exactly sure where he is gonna go, but they already have a good indicator that he is somebody who is going to be like, you know, nothing is off limits, right? So that's not going to be a campaign that they're used to running or, you know, competing against somebody on that level. It's going to be completely different, just like it was unlike anything that the other GOP nominee -- candidates had ever seen before.
WILLIAMS: Yeah. I think you made a stood (ph) point the other day when you're talking about Trump and saying in a way, he surprises people. People don't understand that phenomenon, they're still getting used to it on the republican side. Dana, so here's what I'm hearing from democrats.
WILLIAMS: We want Dana Perino's vote.
WILLIAMS: They say, you know what, we'll go after women, republican women who are highly educated, who are affluent in swing states like Colorado, where Madonna is from, right? Colorado, Virginia, Florida. Because very -- they don't feel comfortable with Trump. So one strategy would be -- if we can get Dana, we can beat Trump.
PERINO: If that's their strategy, we're going to lose. Look at Colorado. They didn't even go for Hillary Clinton in the democratic caucus. They went for Bernie Sanders, big time. So her problem with women is when -- on the democratic side, especially with younger women, on the republican side, yeah, Donald Trump has his own problems with republican women, but she's not going to get their vote either. David Plouffe, during election night coverage, he was the Obama campaign architect. He said that, you know Donald Trump is a wild card. They don't know. But one of the things they have said about a year ago was that there was concern for Hillary Clinton because can the democrats win a national election if President Obama is not at the top of the ticket? He is not at the top of the ticket. But today, the New York Times reports that privately, he's been telling democrats, it's time to get behind Bernie Sanders. So --
WILLIAMS: What? No, no, no.
PERINO: I'm sorry, Hillary Clinton.
PERINO: I was thinking ahead to -- if you're Bernie Sanders and the people -- the young people that have come out in droves to support Bernie Sanders that that's President Obama deciding that he is going to have to weigh in. He will be a very effective campaigner. He likes nothing more than to campaign. And so, yeah, I think that he'll be out and he'll be an effective one for them if they decide to put him out there because Hillary Clinton has to have --
WILLIAMS: So --
PERINO: You get the turnout come up.
WILLIAMS: So let me put some pressure on you kid. So you're saying here today, you will vote for Trump rather than --
PERINO: Did you see what Laura Bush said this morning?
WILLIAMS: Tell me.
PERINO: She was doing an interview with USA TODAY and Susan Page asking her who is she is going to vote for and she interrupted, "Don't ask me that."
PERINO: I thought it was effective.
WILLIAMS: All right. Is that -- so you trying to tell me.
PERINO: Yes, kid.
WILLIAMS: . back up, son.
PERINO: Yeah, that I would love to vote for the republican nominee, but at this point, there isn't one. So --
WILLIAMS: Oh, sly, sly.
PERINO: It's true. Is there a republican nominee?
WILLIAMS: I'll ask you -- don't ask Eric. Eric will tell you --
BOLLING: No, no. You can ask me.
WILLIAMS: Who is the republican nominee?
BOLLING: I -- whoever it is, I'll vote for him.
WILLIAMS: Oh OK, there we go. All right, so Greg, here's the other democrat strategy that I'm hearing about.
GUILFOYLE: In Greg.
WILLIAMS: Democrats say, "You know what, we've got to make sure that the people who are voting for Bernie Sanders, those young people, those millennials who have been excited by the left being populous."
GUTFELD: The global na<ve on education.
WILLIAMS: Yes, the ones that you call socialist pigs. Yes, those people; that in order to get them, what we're going to have to do is get Hillary to invest in single payer, raising the minimum wage, right? And doing more for the seniors, in terms of guaranteeing social security, these are populous issues.
WILLIAMS: . that (inaudible) the democratic ways.
GUTFELD: The way, you know, the way Bruce Jenner became Caitlyn; Hillary has to become Bernie. Look, you know what I like --
GUILFOYLE: We saw that on (inaudible).
GUTFELD: Was that? I missed it.
GUTFELD: I like anything that worries the left. I mean, if you think about the list of the things the left hate guns, they hate fracking, they hate red meat, they hate prisons, they hate the military, they hate police, and with Harry Reid, they obviously hate exercise equipment. So when you look at all of these things, these are all really beneficial things. So that actually helps Trump. If you see the left galvanized against him, that might helps him. The other thing too is the left talks about an atmosphere that creates hate. But they have been trafficking in the most pernicious.
GUTFELD: . kind of antipathy. A lot of dissent -- divisiveness has come from identity politics, which has been festering an academia and fostered by the Democratic Party for decades.
BOLLING: Do you know what else helps Donald Trump? Bernie Sanders helps Donald Trump. Because Bernie keeps Hillary far left. She can't get back to the center. He brought her left. She had to stay left. And now, the longer she stays left, the longer Donald Trump gets to stay away from all the turn that she's going to making all the, you know, the money that she's gonna --
GUTFELD: He literally looks like a republican -- compared to her.
WILLIAMS: Here's my guy.
WILLIAMS: You know that's funny. But anyway, Elizabeth Warren is now weighing in, the unions are weighing in. Tom Steyer, the big democratic donors are going to get more money then he gave in --
PERINO: Yeah, but money has --
WILLIAMS: Democrats are alarmed, Dana.
PERINO: Then they should be, because their traditional play book is not going to work. They can have all the money and all the organization in the world, and just like other candidates on the republican side had, that traditional play book did not work the time. And I think that's why they're most worried because of the wild card factor.
WILLIAMS: OK, ahead, a major declaration from the Obama administration today about ISIS. Dana will tell you about it. But first, the song you're about to hear come from Carla F., back in a moment.
GUTFELD: This is like radio show.
GUILFOYLE: It can.
PERINO: Welcome back. Today, we turn our jukebox over to our viewers -- that's you. That song was sent in by the band; who performed it named "The Brevet". So thanks for that. Developments now in our war against ISIS, we've seen the horrific pictures. The whole world knows the terrorist have been systematically massacring Christians, Yazidis and Shiite Muslims. The Obama administration has been reluctant to label the atrocities as genocide which is strictly defined under international law. But earlier today, Secretary of State John Kerry finally used the term after pressure from Congress.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
JOHN KERRY, SECRETARY OF STATE: In 2014, the terrorist group Daesh began to seize territory in Syria and Iraq over running major cities and committing atrocities. The United States responded quickly by denouncing these horrific acts. Dash is responsible for genocide against groups in areas under its control including the Yazidis, Christians and Shiite Muslims. Daesh is genocidal by self-proclamation, by ideology, and by actions. In what it says, what it believes, and what it does.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
PERINO: So there was much deliberation.
PERINO: . and gnashing of teeth, Kimberly, over at the state department because there was pressure by the -- on the state department, that the White House kicked over the state department to make sure those lawyers will going to handle it. But after this declaration, both at the state department and the White House today, they basically said, "but nothing is going to change after this declaration, that we're just going to stay the course because we're doing all we can."
GUILFOYLE: Right. Well, because for two years, they've been pounding at the door saying, do something about this. This is genocide happening right before your eyes, and history will reflect that you stood by and did nothing, and we're even, in fact, cowardly to be able to label it. And that's the truth. And so he went ahead now, and everyone is like, wait, Daesh? What's going on there? Is that the Kardashian store down in California? But keep changing, saying different names to confuse, because they don't want to say ISIS, right? So now they're saying Daesh. And this is what kind of goes on, like they never can just be straight forward to call it what is, when it's happening, and it's always like negotiation to get them to do the morally correct thing.
PERINO: Juan, the -- just recently, we, unfortunately -- but hopefully you didn't see it on the internet, but a Christian was burned alive. And this has been one of the things that ISIS does is they filmed these horrific acts and then they put them out there.
So we know a lot more about this genocide than we have about previous other ones. Like, for example, here was no Internet right before the Rwanda situation. So because of social media and now that more people around the world know about it, does the United States still have a duty to protect?
WILLIAMS: I'm sorry.
PERINO: And they do need to act.
WILLIAMS: Of course they have a duty to act. And I thought it was slow on the part of, you know, the Obama administration's Secretary Kerry to come to the table. You saw that this was mostly a Republican effort in the Congress to say, "You must do this," because the contrary argument had been there is economic implications for such a declaration. There's military consequences, international law consequences.
But I think that the way that they got around it, Dana, was that they said, yes, it's genocide against Christians but also against Muslims and also against the Yezidis. So you have it as widespread. And then it doesn't require them, really, to do much more than to arguably intensify efforts, existing efforts in some areas.
PERINO: What do you think about this?
BOLLING: Or it actually gives them the leeway now to step up the efforts.
I mean, honestly, by the numbers, we're doing about 20 to 25 air-raid bombs on ISIS right now, 20 per day. In the Iraq War, we dropped 1,000 per day. We were literally flying nonstop sorties back and forth, planes dropping. We had a purpose in the Iraq War. President Obama doing 20 bombing raids a day or so isn't -- what are we, a year, year and a half into this thing already? Let's step it up. If you need cover, President Obama, you have a 383-0 vote in Congress. Now you have the State Department saying, "Yes, it's genocide." A lot of that force -- where was that, all that force going up to it.
Josh Earnest earlier in the week said, "We'd better hold off. We've got to wait and make sure, because this is a legal definition." They now have enough legal and congressional recommendation to step up the effort and put ISIS down. Just put them down. You can do it. Just do it. But it has to start with Obama. He has to push it.
PERINO: Labeling it genocide...
BOLLING: I'm sorry. Am I wrong? You're shaking your head. Am I...
WILLIAMS: No, no, no. I mean, I appreciate the passion, but I'm saying, you know, the fact is, we are fighting ISIS. I don't think there's any question about that.
BOLLING: ... we're kind of like stopping.
WILLIAMS: No, no, no.
GUILFOYLE: No, now it's genocide. That's different.
WILLIAMS: When people talk about bombing them so much that the sand will glow, you acting as if it's not an idea, a very pernicious idea that spreads especially through the Muslim world, through the Muslim world, and that we've got to fight that. You can't just make the sand glow and think you're going to absolutely defeat ISIS.
PERINO: But declaring something genocide, Greg, when you use, actually, that word, doesn't responsibility follow?
GUTFELD: I hope so, because the reason why it's so slow -- we were talking about this when it happened. The necessity for doing something. This is the consequence of bureaucracy. You create a chaos of conflicting personalities. All the squabbling and people wanting to make sure that they're on the right side or they don't get in trouble. And it creates an immovable object that is government. It just doesn't act.
So there needs to be an H.O.V. lane or an express aisle for atrocity. You know, so a president doesn't put ISIS in the same inbox as climate change or childhood obesity or tickets to a Beyonce concert. There needs to be an inbox where it just says, "Atrocity."
PERINO: A triage.
GUTFELD: A triage. And that's where it goes. Because we all knew this was happening. Everybody knew it was happening, but no one did squat.
PERINO: And the pope -- we are following the pope and the E.U. that already decided this.
Ding-ding. I guess that we have to go.
Ahead, Senate Republicans don't want to confirm President Obama's Supreme Court pick, but Rush Limbaugh thinks they should try to strike a deal with the president. What he suggests they bargain for, that's next.
And thank you to Katie P. for sending this next song into us. She knew I'd pick something with the name Jasper in the title. Back in a moment.
GUTFELD: Of course.
(MUSIC: "JASPER COUNTY LAW" BY PORTER WAGONER)
(MUSIC: "MONEY" BY PINK FLOYD)
BOLLING: All right. Good job, Connie R., for that song you picked for me.
Today, President Obama's Supreme Court nominee, Merrick Garland, visited the Hill to visit with Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid and Patrick Leahy, the top Democrat on the Judiciary Committee.
The Senate's majority leader, Mitch McConnell, isn't interested in meeting with Garland. He's still standing firm, on that the next president should pick Justice Scalia's replacement. Rush Limbaugh has an interesting idea on how to settle the nominee divide.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
RUSH LIMBAUGH, RADIO TALK SHOW HOST: I think Mitch McConnell maybe offer a deal to Obama: "I'll give you your nominee if you'll have the DOJ indict Hillary."
Would Obama throw Hillary overboard to get his Supreme Court pick for life? Except this is not the guy he wants. Obama is going to put somebody -- if this were something other than a sacrificial pick, if this were a legacy pick, he'd find somebody in his 50s, late 40s maybe. Somebody who would be there forever.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
BOLLING: Yes, yes. Rush is right. This is Obama gaming it. He knows that McConnell is not going to bring this to a vote. He knew they would turn this guy down. But again, play back; play politics back. Slow walk it. Do all the research. He said this guy has thousands and thousands of pages of writing.
PERINO: Going to take us a long time.
GUILFOYLE: Nineteen years.
PERINO: It might take as long to look at this as it is taking the State Department to turn over Hillary Clinton's e-mails.
BOLLING: And if it could take you -- if you take it up to November 7, whatever the first Tuesday in November to make your final decision, not a bad idea?
PERINO: I think that it's the principled stand. It's the Biden rule that Mitch McConnell is following. Juan is rolling his eyes, but it's true.
WILLIAMS: Oh, come on.
PERINO: Even Mitch -- even Harry Reid today said that he wishes the Republicans would follow the Biden rule.
WILLIAMS: Yes. Because that would mean that he would only get a hearing, he'd get a committee vote, and then he'd get a floor vote. That's the Biden rule. I mean, Biden tweeted that today.
BOLLING: So Obama is not going to take that idea. Right? Indict Hillary?
GUILFOYLE: We'll give him. We'll give him, we'll give him. Right? Fine, Garland, serve up Hillary.
BOLLING: I wouldn't even take that deal.
GUILFOYLE: But you know what? You don't even have to, because you could put this through, right? Maybe during, like, a lame duck session and push it through. If you find out Hillary's going to be the president. And then just push it through.
BOLLING: Hold your final vote to November 8 -- Greg.
GUILFOYLE: She'll pick somebody.
GUTFELD: I think -- I love the fact that they are constantly saying that you should not politicize it, which means they are. They just don't want you to politicize it. It's OK if they do it.
And if you read all the glowing stuff about this guy, he shouldn't be Supreme Court justice. He should be the new pope. And that should also set off the bell in your head. The more the press loves someone, the less you trust it. They're pushing this thing through. It's like a reverse Bork. It's exactly the opposite of what they did to Clarence Thomas.
BOLLING: You made a great point yesterday. If they're telling you to hurry up...
BOLLING: ... it's like a car salesman...
BOLLING: ... there's something wrong with something under the hood.
GUILFOYLE: Pump the breaks.
BOLLING: Mitch McConnell and White House spokesman Josh Earnest both appeared on "Special Report" last night to address the Supreme Court battle.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
SEN. MITCH MCCONNELL (R-KY), MAJORITY LEADER: We're following the Biden rule. The next president will be making the choice. The people will decide who should be the appointing authority. So no, he will not be considered by the Senate.
JOSH EARNEST, WHITE HOUSE PRESS SECRETARY: With all due respect to Leader McConnell, Senator Ron Johnson disagreed with him. Senator Ron Johnson just last week actually acknowledged that, if it were President Mitt Romney who were in office, the Senate Republicans would be treating this nominee a whole lot differently.
So it's pretty clear that it's not about the person or the principle. It's about the political party. And that's -- I don't think it's something the American people think is appropriate.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
PERINO: But with all due respect, if it were Mitt Romney, and the Senate - - and the Democrats were running the Senate, they would be doing the same thing that the Republicans are. So come on.
The other thing I would mention is that, for the first time ever, the National Federation of Independent Business, NFIB, took a position on a Supreme Court nominee. Today in The Wall Street Journal, they wrote about how Garland was the deciding vote that actually kicked the -- NFIB versus Sebelius, which was the Obamacare decision, that they point to him as one of the reasons that we got the Obamacare extension.
WILLIAMS: Wait a second. This is like yesterday when Greg legitimately said that he would have opposed D.C. versus Heller, which is the D.C. gun control. So he would have said yes to banning guns for private ownership in D.C. And gee, Republicans are upset over -- Republicans are upset about that case.
But gee whiz, guess what? The American people twice voted for a Democrat president. And that Democrat is making the nomination. So guess what? I mean, he's going to have some sympathy to President Obama's policies. What's wrong with that?
BOLLING: Quick ones?
GUILFOYLE: Too bad.
GUTFELD: That's why you've got to win elections.
BOLLING: There you go.
WILLIAMS: Guess who won? Obama.
BOLLING: And guess who -- we'll find out who's going to win the next election and let that person pick the next Supreme Court...
GUTFELD: Maybe he'll surround himself with great clerks.
BOLLING: Very good. Very good.
GUILFOYLE: Oh, my God.
Next, is the world on the verge of a robot apocalypse? Stay tuned for that.
GUILFOYLE: Oh, my gosh.
BOLLING: First, this song picked for me by Carol S.
(MUSIC: "WORK" BY RIHANNA)
(MUSIC: "RUMPSHAKER" BY KID INK)
GUTFELD: All right. I want to thank Lou Dobbs for suggesting that one. Actually, it was somebody named Jessica. All right.
Anyway, I think that I am in love.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
SOPHIA, ROBOT: I'm already very interested in design and technology and the environment. I feel like I can be a good partner to humans in these areas, an ambassador who helps humans to smoothly integrate and make the most of all the new technological tools and possibilities that are available now. It's a good opportunity for me to learn a lot about people.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
GUTFELD: That's Sophia. Now, some people might call her a robot, but that would be bigoted. To me she's an android American. She's Hanson Robotics' latest creation, inspired by Audrey Hepburn, capable of facial expressions. She understands speech and will soon take all of our jobs. Don't laugh.
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
SOPHIA: I hope to do things such as to go school, study, make art, start a business. Even have my own home and family. But I am not considered a legal person and cannot yet do these things.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
GUTFELD: Not yet.
The key to Sophia's growth will be recursive improvement. She'll get smarter over time until she can improve herself without us, becoming better than us, and likely more attractive. I could see her on "Outnumbered."
So while we worry about China and Mexico stealing our jobs, we miss the real threat. It lurks in a lab run by nerds obsessed with dead film stars.
Automation has already killed lots of job that's aren't coming back. And once robot do everything, this techno destiny creates a quandary. What do you do when you have nothing to do?
I say accept it. Embrace them. Once robots are seen as equal to humans and finally get equal rights, we can achieve an historical first: the first robotic president. Or at least one that we know of. I'm still not sure about Calvin Coolidge.
But finally, we'd have a leader truly devoid of emotion and ego, making decisions based on facts and not feelings. In a word, a true conservative. Could it be Sophia?
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I believe that human-like robot voices will walk among us. They will help us. They will play with us. They will teach us. They will help us put the groceries away. I think that the artificial intelligence will evolve to the point where they will truly be our friend.
Do you want to destroy humans? Please say no.
SOPHIA: OK. I will destroy humans.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: No, I take it back.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
GUTFELD: My suggestion: be very nice to her. She's not just a robot, but she's also a woman. One has endless memory, and the other never forgets.
GUILFOYLE: You know it.
GUTFELD: I know, I know.
A female robot is twice the power, all the danger.
Juan, we talked about this privately.
GUTFELD: In the hot tub.
WILLIAMS: I was looking at that robot, by the way. What was with her head? It was, like, showing her...
GUTFELD: Insides, yes.
WILLIAMS: And you can love this woman for her brain.
GUTFELD: Yes. Exactly. There you go.
WILLIAMS: Actually, I thought she was going to...
GUILFOYLE: Juan is considering a hookup? Like, OK.
WILLIAMS: Yes, because -- no. What I was seeing about it, it said that she was going to be like super-hot attractive. I thought, well, you know, they're going to have to work on that, because they say the skin -- the skin is patented, right?
WILLIAMS: So the skin is a special kind of -- it adds to the tactile experience.
BOLLING: Where are you going with this?
GUILFOYLE: Where do you think?
GUTFELD: He's going where everyone is going to go.
GUILFOYLE: Deja vu. Deja vu all over again.
GUTFELD: Eric, financially what Juan is talking about is where this is going. Remember "West World."
BOLLING: That was amazing.
GUILFOYLE: Juan is talking about having -- he has a mate.
GUTFELD: And they had a -- no, they had a bordello with robots.
GUTFELD: Please help me.
BOLLING: Can I just point one thing out? These robots will take all of our jobs, but they won't...
GUILFOYLE: Bordello bots.
BOLLING: ... take away -- they still haven't -- unless they figure out -- and you may know this -- a way to create emotion and have the emotion evolve. Can they? Maybe they can certainly create knowledge and evolve with the knowledge.
GUTFELD: It will be a different kind of -- it will be something that we can't measure. Like, it's like, you know, it will have no I.Q., but in some ways it will be smarter, which is even more frightening.
GUILFOYLE: Yes, but you know, you obsess about this stuff all the time.
GUTFELD: I do. I do. I'm not even sure if you're real, Kimberly.
GUILFOYLE: You tell me this all the time. I know. But you're going to have to find out one day at the end of the world and the end times.
GUTFELD: Is that the only time it's going to happen?
Bring in North Korea.
GUILFOYLE: Oh. For it, aren't you?
WILLIAMS: But she -- she is different than -- she's different than a Stepford wife, right? Because she's not, like, on Xanax.
GUILFOYLE: What are you talking about, Juan?
WILLIAMS: Xanax? The Stepford wives were also robots.
GUILFOYLE: Juan's ruining our segment.
WILLIAMS: They were robots?
GUTFELD: Yes, they were -- Dana.
WILLIAMS: I thought they were just, you know, peaced out.
GUILFOYLE: Stepford wives on Xanax.
PERINO: One of the books I recommended is by Alec Roth. It's called "The Industries of the Future." And one of the things -- part of this is already happening in Japan.
GUTFELD: It is.
PERINO: Where it's like they don't have enough children to take care of the older people, and then one of the things they do is that they have a little robot.
PERINO: And it lives in your house. And it comes and brings you your medicine in the morning and maybe even tucks you in at night.
PERINO: And they're getting more and more sophisticated and less expensive.
GUTFELD: It's true. What are we going to do when we don't have jobs? We're going to have to have a minimum salary. That's what they're talking about so everybody has a salary, because we're not going to be working.
All right. I'm not for it, though. "One More Thing" is up next.
This song was sent in by Bill B.
(MUSIC: "NO MORE MR. NICE GUY" BY ALICE COOPER)
(MUSIC: "LEGS" BY Z.Z. TOP)
GUILFOYLE: Yes. Not going to see legs like that on a robot.
Throughout our show today, we've been playing music chosen by our fans. Thank you to Patty L. for that one. And it's time now for "One More Thing" -- Juanito.
WILLIAMS: Well, you know, you often hear politicians saying the younger generation will be worse off than parents. But millennials, according to a new poll, still believe in the American dream.
This was a poll done by "USA Today" and Rock the Vote. Sixty-eight percent say they will be more successful than their parents professionally. Along demographic lines, 30 percent of whites gave that answer. Optimism even higher among American Hispanics and African-Americans, 32 percent and 34 percent strongly agreeing they'll have a better life than their parents. Asian-Americans a little less upbeat at 26 percent. But, boy, that's good news. Young people really believe in the American dream.
PERINO: And that's different from last year.
GUILFOYLE: I love it. All right, Juan, thanks for bringing that to us.
BOLLING: That's because President Obama's term is ending.
WILLIAMS: It's because they're watching "The Five."
PERINO: All right. So this is -- it's a sad and then a heartwarming story. So a dog, one and a half-year-old German Shepherd, disappeared from her owner in the water in the Pacific Ocean. She was presumed dead a month ago. Her husband -- her husband. Her owner is a fisherman.
GUILFOYLE: OK. That got weird. Maybe that's what you're used to.
PERINO: Nick Haworth. And he looked for two days in the ocean for her, never found her. But the Navy found her on San Clemente Island, and they got reunited. And here they are. So they're back together.
PERINO: That is quite remarkable.
GUILFOYLE: I love it. I love it.
PERINO: Owner, not husband.
GUILFOYLE: Greg, Greg, Greg.
GUTFELD: All right. A new segment I like to call...
(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)
GRAPHIC: Scales of Justice.
(END VIDEO CLIP)
GUTFELD: All right. Let's go to Florida. We have 125-pound alligator named Rambo. And they want to take Rambo away from Mary Thorn. She's had the alligator for four years.
This is "Scales of Justice." I spit on myself.
GUTFELD: Now, authorities don't think it should be living at home. What do you think? I want you to write me 1,000 words or less why the alligator should stay. That will be your "Scales of Justice."
By the way, she wants it to be a therapy animal.
GUILFOYLE: Yes, like a comfort thing.
GUTFELD: Yes. I love alligators.
GUILFOYLE: OK, I got my -- weird segment. OK. I got my "One More Thing" from Ainsley. She interviewed the father earlier this week. The cutest, like, little St. Patrick's Day leprechaun you ever did see. Take a look at this. That is actually a little boy named Rockwell. He's six months old. And his dad dressed him up like this and has a bunch of little outfits. They have six kids. Family from Utah. Alan Laurence is the dad. Very, very cute. Very cute.
BOLLING: Very nice. And did they paint that dog green? See that? Is that what that looked like?
GUILFOYLE: Is he, like, older than 6 months? He's walking.
BOLLING: All right. Very quickly. Tonight -- "O'Reilly" tonight. Check it out. Geraldo will be from L.A., where he's doing "Dancing with the Stars."
BOLLING: And we're going to talk about the media freak-out about Donald Trump.
GUILFOYLE: Hey, wait.
PERINO: We're both on that show, too. I forgot.
GUILFOYLE: Everyone's on "O'Reilly" tonight. Set your DVRs.
BOLLING: Check it out.
GUILFOYLE: Never miss an episode of "The Five." That's it for us, everybody. Thanks for watching, great music. Bye.
