The Five

Donald Trump apologizes for leaked 2005 conversation

This is a rush transcript from "The Five," October 7, 2016. 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 Kimberly Guilfoyle, Juan Williams, Dana Perino and Greg Gutfeld, today is a very special day for the Fox News Channel. It's our 20th anniversary and we're going to commemorate that major milestone later in this hour. But first, a Fox News alert. Winds have weaken a little bit down to a Category 2 hurricane, but Hurricane Matthew is still an extremely dangerous -- Category 2 storm whipping up Florida's east coast. The death toll there has now risen to four. Georgia and South Carolina are bracing for impact, the eye of Matthew remains offshore, but there is extreme concern about the winds and the storm surge pushing off against the (inaudible) coastline. St. Augustine has been among the hardest hit. This amateur video shows people trapped at a hotel at the heart of that city.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Have you called for help? Have you called for help? How many, how many kids are in there?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: (inaudible).

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Twenty?

(CROSSTALK)

(END VIDEO CLIP)

BOLLING: Hurricane Matthew has killed hundreds in the Caribbean, writers has now reporting the death toll in Haiti has risen to a more than 800, the reporters (inaudible) along Florida's east coast. We're also going to get an update from Rick Reichmuth at the Fox Weather Center, but we're going to begin with Leland Vittert live in Daytona Beach. Leland, tell us about the storm.

LELAND VITTERT, FOX NEWS CORRESPONDENT: Eric, 24 hours ago, a lot has changed and that's when the police chief here said it wasn't a matter of if, but when, someone would die in this storm, in his city, and sadly, that has happened. Woman who went out to feed her animals around noon, right in the height of the storm, died when a tree fell on her, and that is just how dangerous, how random this storm to be. During hurricanes, we talked a lot about the damage, the wind damages in specific. And you look behind me, one of the boardwalks here at Daytona Beach, the tourist shops not really significant damage. Significant if you own one of these stores, not significant, though, overall. You get a sense here as you look down at the ocean. Number one, the power that this storm produced, but number two, also, just how high up the storm came. You see where the concrete trashcan that was lifted up and moved off one of the sidewalks, and then right here, sort of a waterline where the water reached. Given how it was on the other side of this hill, it will stand a reason it had this storm surge even been one of two feet higher. It would about a much bigger affect there, farther inland. That didn't happen. Many folks saying, "We didn't necessarily dodge a bullet entirely, but certainly at least in fear in Volusia County not nearly as bad as expected." Flooding is still a problem, but not the sort of overwhelming effect that everyone prepared for, guys.

BOLLING: All right, Dana has a question.

DANA PERINO, CO-HOST: Well Leland, I was curious because some of the local officials and state officials have been saying the worst could still be yet to come. Are they not talking about Florida any longer, they're talking about further up north in Georgia and South Carolina?

VITTERT: Well Dana, the state officials are saying this for a couple of reason. We're going to walk down. I'll talk about why that is. They keep saying here that they really want people -- number one, not to take anything for granted. So they're getting -- where happening right now, the sort of -- counterclockwise, pardon me, winds that are now coming back around, so it's still fairly dangerous to be out on the street, especially if you don't have the proper gear if you're not really set-up to be in one of this situation. Also, number two, worst is yet to come because of the storm surge, still possible to get more storm surge. We saw that really after the worst winds down in Daytona Beach. We saw storm surge coming in, in flooding. The other issue is, is what happens in north Florida, the contour, the Gold Coast is very different as you go farther north and up in the Atlantic. It's much lower in terms of how the coast is dealt with. And also, the way the island are shaped, a lot of the water from the storm surge can comeback around, and that's really what they're worried about now, North Florida into Georgia to the lowlands of South Carolina -- in those places, Dana.

BOLLING: Greg has one.

GREG GUTFELD, CO-HOST: Hey, Leland. I'm just wondering when I'm looking at you, you're out there all alone. I'm just wondering if the only people there right now are reporters.

VITTERT: Right, guys. You may be asking me a question. It appears that I've lost your connection. We're doing our best to establish it out here, as you might imagine during the hurricane and during the sort of the aftermath of the hurricane, cell phones that we used to communicate. Back with you guys and be able to hear what you're asking us, tend to be somewhat unreliable and shockingly enough, iPhones don't really love the rain, it's been coming down in the drench pocket. So, with that, we'll it back to you guys and wait to hear -- we'll talk to you a little bit later in the show and show you some of the more damage here in Daytona Beach. Back to you.

BOLLING: Very good, Leland. Thank you very much. We'll check back with you a little bit later on the show. Let's go now to our chief meteorologist, Rick Reichmuth, tracking the storm in Fox Weather Center. Rick, where is it headed?

RICK REICHMUTH, CHIEF METEOROLOGIST: It's headed to the north now. Winds have come down a little bit that come to a Category 2, the high in Category 2 at a hundred and ten. But that pressure of the 948, meteorological terms, that still really, really, low pressure. So still a very, very strong storm, but it is hard to coastline, we talked of the last number of days, exactly where it goes on that coastline, it's going to have really big impact. The worst of the wind, the worst of it was just offshore, and you saw this couple of little (inaudible) here, this is all about 25 miles offshore, had that been a little bit closer, certainly would have been worst, at least as part of the storm surge and the wind. But we've obvious to seen a lot of damage. We have a long ways to go, storm still pulling a lot of that energy and the storm surge, and so this kind of a concave area here along the coastline that Leland was just talking about. You also noticed the kind of that coastline, that little jugged shape, it's a lot of (inaudible) a lot of kind of swamp and rivers and inlets, and that's why we were gonna continue to see that storm surge pile in here and continue to flood. The center of the storm right now is about the center, about 45 miles from the coast, but the wall that, where we still have the very strong winds is only about 15 to 20 miles off the shore there. Let's see, not sure why that map, just pop up -- let me show you this. Hurricane warnings in effect here now including areas of North Carolina, and the latest track looks like it's going to a little farther off towards the east before it makes the inaudible). And because of that, as it goes north, Charleston, South Carolina potentially, you notice the center of that really flirting there with the coastline. So we go into tomorrow morning, tomorrow afternoon, Sunday afternoon and we still have a lot of impacts, a lot of time with the hurricane right there flirting with the coast. So a lot of areas are going to deal with this before it moves back to the south. Don't worry about this, when it comes back to the south it will be kind of a shadow of its former self. This right here is the storm surge still probably 8 to 12, Savannah up towards Charleston, beautiful area and we're going to be watching a big storm surge that is likely going to cause a lot of flooding. One last thing guys, I want to show you the rainfall amounts are going to be extreme. You seem a lot of rain in Florida, but we will see it become more of a rain event as it starts to interact with the front as it off towards the west as it get into the Carolinas and look at this, we're going to see some spots, 15 inches even now going up into eastern Virginia. Juan, you used to talk -- yesterday asked me about Virginia, but I think eastern Virginia in Norfolk, we're gonna be talking about some pretty significant rain, and that means quite a little bit of flooding.

BOLLING: All right, hang on, KG has a question.

KIMBERLY GUILFOYLE, CO-HOST: Hi, Rick. So, in terms of the expectation level where people were projecting, you know, for this hurricane, where do you think it's basically plays itself out in that sense?

REICHMUTH: Like was the forecast accurate? Is that what you mean?

GUILFOYLE: Yeah.

REICHMUTH: Yeah, I think it's been pretty spot on, we've set all along that little 20 miles, one way or another, we couldn't say, but the overall behavior of it, of it is run just right parallel to the coast and it continues to do so. So I think what we've seen with the damage in Florida, what I think we have yet to see by tomorrow morning of what happens here in Georgia and South Carolina is going to continue to be very extreme and a really dangerous night ahead, again, across the areas of Georgia and into South Carolina and we have a lot of flooding going on right now in Jacksonville, as well. One last thing I got to tell you, we had record breaking flooding across areas of the eastern North Carolina, a couple of weeks ago. That means the ground is incredibly saturated, and if we get those spots that maybe getting that 12 to 10 -- 10 to 12 inches of rain up there by the time we get to Sunday, we're going to have a massive flooding event going on across parts of North Carolina as well.

BOLLING: All right, Rick. I think if you think back, you look at Hurricane Katrina took a direct hit .

REICHMUTH: Yeah.

BOLLING: . towards New Orleans, also Hurricane Sandy came directly westward .

REICHMUTH: Yup.

BOLLING: . into the, into the coast and that caused a lot of the damage. We're going to leave it right there.

REICHMUTH: Yeah.

BOLLING: Thank you very much, Rick. We gonna now to Bryan Llenas in Sebastian, Florida. Now Bryan, what's the latest there? You look like -- it looks like it's not too shabby there right now.

BRYAN LLENAS, FOX NEWS NATIONAL CORRESPONDENT: Well let's talk about what Rick was talking about which is that any 20 miles to the west and this storm could have been a lot worse for central and south Florida. Right behind me we have beautiful homes, right? We are on A1A. Well, if we have my cameraman come behind him, you'll see that those homes would have been damaged, had the Category 4 hurricane made the 20 miles to west. But right across the street you see the damage here, this is piers, right? You got the jet skis and cruise from the piers and the broken piers out here, the kayaks and boats that have been lifted from the forest. This is the Indian River. Behind those homes I had shown you, that was the Atlantic Ocean, because that's storm did not hit here in south and central Florida, the way that they believed and how it's really hitting in Daytona and Jacksonville with that kind of severity, well that's why people here in south, in central Florida are right now breathing a sigh of relief. We have about a million people without power and there are plenty people without power here, especially in central Florida right now. But besides that, again, we've had four deaths to the storm and those deaths have come sadly. One, you know, two people that had a generator in the garage, another woman who had a heart attack and emergency services couldn't get to her and another woman who had a fallen tree that hit her, unfortunately, but all in all for central and south Florida, unlike what's happening in Jacksonville and St. Augustine. People expected a really serious, serious storm and right now the damage is minimal with fallen trees and little bit of, you know, puddles and that kind of a thing, thankfully. Eric?

BOLLING: All right. Thanks, Bryan. The low lying city of Jacksonville, Florida is bracing for a tremendous amounts of flooding, as Matthew takes into a north. Garrett Tenney is there now and he joins us live. Garrett?

GARRETT TENNEY, FOX NEWS CORRESPONDENT: Yeah, Eric. We're talking earlier about, about the worst is yet to come. Jacksonville is where they were talking about. Right now you can see we're just starting to feel the full brunt of Hurricane Matthew here and it's going to stay this way for at least the next three hours. The biggest concern, because Jacksonville is such a low lying area, is the storm surge. This is the St. John's River. Right now if this raises up another foot 1/2, that is going to be clear covering this entire boardwalk here along the shore, already a Jacksonville Beach about 15 miles from here. The first 2 1/2, three blocks of that town are entirely flooded. So the worst is yet to come here in Jacksonville where we be keeping a close eye on the developments over the next three hours. Eric?

BOLLING: All right, Garrett, thank you very much. We're going to be monitoring Hurricane Matthew throughout the hour, but we turn to the presidential race next. There's only two days left before the next presidential debate, our predictions and our advice for both candidates ahead.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

JUAN WILLIAMS, CO-HOST: Welcome back. This Sunday is the next presidential debate. Hillary Clinton's off the trail today, but Donald trump took part in a round table this afternoon and a town hall last night. Here's what he said there.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

DONALD TRUMP, REPUBLICAN PRESUMPTIVE PRESIDENTIAL NOMINEE: Donald Trump is going to New Hampshire to practice for Sunday. This has nothing to do with Sunday, and it's like -- they make you into a child. And this has --I love the people of New Hampshire. And this was set up a little while ago, they were going to cancel it and I said why do you cancel it? What do you want a debate prep? I said, forget debate prep. I mean, give me a break. Do you really think that Hillary Clinton is debate prepping for three or four days? Hillary Clinton is resting, OK? She's resting --

(END VIDEO CLIP)

WILLIAMS: We've got a live show this Sunday, a few hours before the second showdown. So please, make sure to tune in and watch "The Five" at 5:00 p.m. More now on what we can expect at this weekend's face off and right off the bat as we were going on near "The Washington Post," posted a story that's about a tape of Donald Trump talking with Billy Bush as they were doing a show and apparently, Donald Trump is in his private van or whatever with, and they're talking about women in the most derogatory of ways, using language that we can't repeat here for you. So, let me ask Eric. What do you think of this as how is this going to affect --

BOLLING: We have a live show Sunday?

(LAUGHTER)

GUILFOYLE: That sound --

BOLLING: That will be great. That will be great.

GUILFOYLE: That sounded like .

WILLIAMS: You don't, you don't want to talk about this.

BOLLING: That is so much fun. I look forward to come on Sunday.

GUILFOYLE: That sounded like an invitation to a funeral. It was like --

BOLLING: So look, yeah. I listened to the tape and look, Donald, obviously heard it. He came out. He apologized immediately, says it was a locker-room banter and made an apology if he's offended. And it's, I guess that's all you can really do and you can -- that's all you can really hope for.

WILLIAMS: But now I say in terms of debate, so do you think this - the women's issue is back?

BOLLING: Well, I think it she'd -- Hillary will try and you know, remember what she did with miss -- what was it, Machado?

PERINO: Alicia Machado.

BOLLING: Machado. Yeah. Ms. Machado. She -- that she wasn't even asked that question, but she somehow worked it in. So I'm, I'm guessing, they're figuring out right now how they can take a question that may have something to do, similar, grab it and somehow (inaudible) -- it's going to be tough, though. I, I mean --

WILLIAMS: OK.

BOLLING: Yeah, it's not, it's not fun listening to that.

WILLIAMS: Kimberly?

GUILFOYLE: Yeah. I mean, obviously -- it's the women's issue and that discussion has never been off the table. This has remained the constant throughout this campaign and election. I think issuing a statement right away was imperative. So, you know, it's obviously not a positive story, that's for sure. So we're going to have to see where it goes from here.

WILLIAMS: Let's talk about the politics in the debate Dana. What do you see?

PERINO: Well, I think that -- first of all in his statement he doesn't apologize for saying it, he apologize as if you were offended, which is not the same as apologizing for something that you did.

GUTFELD: I've tried that. It doesn't work.

PERINO: It's tried all the time.

GUILFOYLE: Then Dana had a (inaudible) right? (inaudible), remember?

PERINO: And the thing about this is that -- I have, I can understand -- I hear him. He's saying it was a locker-room banter, private conversation. Did not expect that it was on a hot mic, it was within 2005. But culture has moved on. And one of the things you see in this election, repeatedly, and you'll see more tonight when the fresh polls come out is that Donald Trump trails with women by a huge margin. He's not doing as well with men as he needs to be. So there are just -- these are points in the campaign when there's no room for error. And when it comes to the debate prep, I think, that was -- he praised Governor Pence for his debate performance for good reason. And Pence basically shut himself away with Governor Scott Walker and they practiced for that debate for days. It does pay off to debate -- to practice, and I do believe that Hillary Clinton is not resting. I think that she is making her team put her through her paces over and over again to see how she can, at least try to not flail at this debate and to try to seem whatever it is that people want from her likeable (inaudible). The last thing I would say on this statement from him today if you go to "The Washington Post" page and you listen to it, is that it goes back to this issue -- it's not just with women, it's the issue of temperament and judgment. And over and over again, the numbers are flipped in terms of temperament and judgment if that's what you care about when you're voting for a president. It's a difficult thing for him, so it has never welcomed. But I do think that, unlike other times in campaign -- in the campaign where they've been -- they had to deal with adversity. Donald Trump's quick reaction to this was better than in the past.

WILLIAMS: So, Greg, you and I are so expert at dealing with women. I thought I would ask you. Donald Trump said last time after the first debate that he held back.

GUTFELD: Right.

WILLIAMS: . he didn't bring up Bill Clinton's problems with women because he was in -- he thought it might embarrass Chelsea and Hillary.

GUTFELD: Right. I think he still --

WILLIAMS: Does he thinks he's gonna bring it up now?

GUTFELD: I think he will now. I think because is, this is going to be full board misogyny, accusations against Donald Trump. Hillary will bring this up and its only defense is going to be using Bill Clinton. So look at your husband. That's the only place he can go with this because he's got -- he's up, kind of up against the law when you're on tape. The thing about the town hall thing, you know, it only had Trump supporters. He continues to retreat into comfort zones instead of going out there and putting himself out there for practice. I mean there were more softballs in that town hall than the bushes at your local park. Meanwhile, she's like lined up, I don't know how many Trump impersonators that throw paintballs at her and she's like, she's actually, you know, prepared and it's like he said, he thought Pence did a great job. Why did Pence do a great job?

WILLIAMS: Well, so let's go -- let's runt through this for the audience, because they may be interested to know that Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee has been in Donald Trump's sessions and apparently he's throwing questions at Donald Trump. Chris Christie is playing the antagonist. I don't know how Chris Christie plays Hillary Clinton. And they're also trying to talk to Trump, Kellyanne Conway, about body language and how he deals with the fact that the questions are coming from the audience, as well as from the two moderators.

GUTFELD: My prediction is it's going to be a war over who's more folksy. Hillary is going to try to out-folks the Trump, because he likes to amble around, so she's gonna amble around like a friendly farmer from up the road.

PERINO: Oh. I think she, she should cut any canned line from her performance. The canned lines from Kaine were not good in that earlier debate.

GUILFOYLE: Disastrous. Yeah, not good. I mean, look. Obviously, she's preparing because she prepared last time and it worked well for her, but now it's gonna also be about personality, and so in terms of her reliability and people liking her, she's not been able to do well with that. People say, you know, if you know her personally they find her likable but it's not translating, it's not resonating through the screen and in these groups. Perhaps, this will give her an opportunity to try and showcase that if it is there to find it somewhere deep down. Trump, he seems very comfortable, I think in this kind of format, just from the signal, the town hall that he's done, maybe this is gonna be able a little bit of an advantage for him to try and showcase.

WILLIAMS: All right.

GUTFELD: Problem is it that this is not the same kind of town hall. That was, that was not a dry run. That was a no run, you know, there was no conflict.

WILLIAMS: Yeah, those were all Trump supporters .

GUTFELD: Yeah.

WILLIAMS: . and the questions were prescreened, so --

GUTFELD: Yeah.

(CROSSTALK)

WILLIAMS: All right, don't forget to watch us Sunday at 5:00 p.m. A quick break now and then we've got a new bomb shell on the Clinton e-mail scandal to tell you about. How the White House tried to help Hillary Clinton contain the scandal. Next.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

PERINO: Welcome back to "The Five." Hurricane Matthew is turning up the coast of Florida, still an extremely dangerous storm that's weakened slightly to a Category 2 storm. Officials in Georgia and South Carolina are warning its coastal residents to flee now before Matthew makes his way there. We'll have an update for you shortly. There will be live reporters on the ground that we'll talk to. But we turn now to politics again. There's news on the Clinton e-mail controversy, (inaudible) said, this is actually news that just -- the heats keep coming. E-mails obtain by the RNC, through a FOIA request indicate that the White House was working with the State Department and the Clinton campaign to manage and minimize the fallout over the secretary's private server back in early 2015. An administration official issued this statement to Fox News today. "The administration has always been transparent about the fact that we were in touch with the Clinton campaign about stories related to her time at the State Department." Which I have to say, given the story, I -- I buy that, when I look at some of these e-mails I see the communications team at the White House and the State Department coordinating as they do. And the reason that the e-mails are public is because the RNC Eric asked for these e-mails based on a freedom of information request. They got them. In one way you could look at it and say looks like they're colluding to try to protect Hillary, even though she had this server, which was -- one of the things President Obama said that there was no wrong doing, but they were early on recognizing that this was going to be a bad story for them.

BOLLING: And my issue with is, is that they discuss how they're going to spin it to the media. So the White House is coordinating with the campaign and saying, hey, you see, what are we doing with CBS? Are they OK? Yeah, we're doing good with them. Or what about the other group or Steve Harvey sending the coordination and then -- it's just -- I don't -- if it's not illegal, it certainly should be unethical.

WILLIAMS: But it's not illegal and .

PERINO: Yeah.

WILLIAMS: . there was no campaign. We're talking about .

PERINO: That's right.

WILLIAMS: . the State Department and the White House. And so you had now -- what's interesting, and I think would --

PERINO: I mean they knew she was going to announce her presidency.

WILLIAMS: So that your purpose is that you have Jennifer Palmieri .

BOLLING: Yeah.

WILLIAMS: . who was at the White House at the time and then she goes over later to, work for Hillary Clinton's campaign.

BOLLING: Right.

WILLIAMS: And you have Jen Psaki who was at the State Department at the time. She later goes to the White House and they're communicating about whether or not they can avoid having the current secretary of state. Hillary Clinton's success of John Kerry ask questions during a CBS interview and it's not clear but it looks like they finally come to a decision that, oh yes, CBS is not going to ask about this which suggests that, gee, that CBS, they will avoid this. Well CBS today, puts out a stamen saying, "No, we've never bought into saying anything was off the table." The second part of it is, and maybe the more troubling to me is, you see the State Department assuring a lawyer who worked for Mrs. Clinton that the State Department's not telling Congress that Mrs. Clinton did anything wrong. And I don't know how they can know that with that juncture, but clearly they're in touch with the lawyers early on.

PERINO: But not only that, they had told President Obama, Kimberly, -- he went on "60 Minutes," so when he asked about it he said that she had done nothing wrong. I mean it does smell a little --

GUILFOYLE: Well, and obviously, he had to be aware that she, in fact .

(CROSSTALK)

GUILFOYLE: . was, I think inappropriately and how her own private e-mail server and had multiple devices, another lie and, in fact, did send classified information, another lie on her part. And then it shows collusion. It certainly -- to me, it's not very ethically, you can say something not legally punishable or a violation of a specific law. But honestly, this is what undermines people's faith and trust about the credibility and the honesty of government as it stands today and this is the message and the call to arms for change that you were seeing people turnout in record numbers because they don't like this. Exactly what we're witnessing.

PERINO: I do wonder, though, if it's Republicans or Democrats. I mean, the White House and the State Department, the campaigns, you -- there is coordination. I don't know if you're going to outlaw it...

GUTFELD: Yes, I mean, it goes back to...

PERINO: ... or be able to convince people that it was wrong.

GUTFELD: But the fact that it's just kind of acceptable. Right? That the media helps a buddy out. It's like the media is a Beavis to the Democrats' Butthead.

GUILFOYLE: Yes.

GUTFELD: Or if you're a fan of "Saved by the Bell," the media is Zach, and the Democrats are Screech. Or if you like "The Gilmore Girls," the media is Laine and the Democratic Party is Rory.

WILLIAMS: Well, don't stop there.

GUTFELD: The media is Ren. The Democrats are Stimpy.

GUILFOYLE: Stimpy, oh, I like that. That was a good one. I'll stop there. Stop while you're ahead.

BOLLING: So you do interviews with Politico. Some of them may be running or they may not be. And the communications people call you and say, "Hey, can you ask about this?" You go, "Well, you know what? If it works in," you say, "Maybe I can work it in. If it's interesting."

PERINO: Or can you -- they ask you sometimes to not ask questions.

BOLLING: But -- or not ask about that, and you go, "I'm sorry, you can't do that." If you're good, you say just say, "No, I'm not going to -- I'm not going to tell you I'm not going to ask that."

PERINO: Can't promise you that.

BOLLING: "Can't promise you that."

But my problem here is just seems like there's much more coordination going on. Yes, we have them. CBS is on board. A wink and a nod, maybe not written in an email but a wink and a nod saying that clearly, there was some sort of coordination between the journalism -- the journalist and the campaign.

GUTFELD: It's so funny, because most journalists are uncoordinated.

WILLIAMS: You mean there's gambling in this place? Is that what you're saying, Eric? There's gambling here?

BOLLING: Not that. I'm talking about...

WILLIAMS: But I'm just saying, Dana's point. Look, this goes -- first of all you'd be upset if the White House wasn't talking to the State Department. And secondly, guess what? It happens with Republicans and Democrats. It's just -- it's just politics.

GUILFOYLE: Oh, Juan.

PERINO: Communications people are always in the story, but they're actually not at fault here.

All right. Stay right there, because we've got a big birthday to celebrate ahead. It's our own, the FOX News Channel. Excuse me. I got a little choked up. They turned 20 today. Please join us as we take a nostalgic trip down memory lane, next.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

GUILFOYLE: Welcome back to "The Five." And on this day in history, October 7, 1996, a little cable network called the FOX News Channel was born. In almost no time, it became the most powerful name in news.

And here we are today, 20 years later, proud to be bringing you the fair and balanced coverage that you deserve day after day.

"The Five" turned five this July, and to celebrate today's big anniversary, we'd like to reflect back on some of our favorite moments since the show began, starting with Eric.

BOLLING: I've had so many great times. Actually, the decade I've been here and the five 1/2 years or so that we've been on. Lon Snowden, interviewing politicos, hosting "The Factor's" been great. But five 1/2 years ago about this day changed everything for me.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

BOLLING: Hello everyone. Five o'clock on the East Coast, and this is "The Five." It's our first show.

Up first, the issue everyone's talking about: President Obama vowing to get a debt deal done, warning that they'll meet every day until an agreement is made.

BOLLING: Thank you our viewers who have come out in droves to support us. Last week we were the highest rated show in all of cable news. Thank you especially, the faithful viewers, because without that there's no reason to put the show on.

BOLLING: Four years, four more, I don't know. Forty more. It's been great.

GUTFELD: We'll be dead by then.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

BOLLING: Thirteen-hundred shows, five plus years it's been a great ride. Wild ride but great ride.

GUILFOYLE: Never a dull moment. That's for sure.

All right, Dana, what have you got for us?

PERINO: Talk about a great ride, remember this in New Hampshire this past year?

GUILFOYLE: Oh, boy.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

PERINO: This is going to be the best segment in all of New Hampshire, because the five of us are going to pick the top five candidates. We don't know who we're going to have. And then we're going to slide down this hill.

On your mark, get set, go. Oh, no, he's going to win.

Congratulations. Donald Trump. You heard it here first.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

PERINO: And that was a predictive primary win. You won.

GUILFOYLE: Trump.

PERINO: Won the primary.

BOLLING: And I didn't even cheat.

PERINO: People all around the company, around the channel were jealous.

GUILFOYLE: It was pretty funny. This is the job that we have.

PERINO: And you guys were good sports, because I had that idea the night before in the bar. And everyone was like OK, "OK, fine."

GUILFOYLE: And who got me those pants? Remember, Juan, I ended up with all the ice. I had the whole thing snow down the back. It was crazy, but Juan was helpful.

GUTFELD: Helpful in what way? Helpful in what way? Clarify. He's married.

GUILFOYLE: Yes.

WILLIAMS: Anyway. That was Dana's idea. I think that's what shocked me. Was like Dana wants to go...

GUILFOYLE: She was a killer.

WILLIAMS: Yes, and did you see her face? I mean, gosh, I think you're a snow bunny.

PERINO: I come up with things that I can win.

GUILFOYLE: I was like, do we get on our knees or just lay down flat? And I looked up, and Dana was at the end of the mountain. I was like, "What happened?"

GUTFELD: I'll let that line go by.

WILLIAMS: Oh, my God.

GUILFOYLE: Well, it's true. You have to know how -- the technique to do it. So...

PERINO: That was just fun.

WILLIAMS: Hats off to the folks at St. Anson's, because that was just fun. That's almost like a childhood fantasy, to go snow sledding.

GUILFOYLE: That was fun.

PERINO: We'll see what happens in Vegas in a couple weeks.

GUTFELD: Yes. Different snow.

GUILFOYLE: Juanito.

PERINO: Oh!

GUTFELD: It's a terrible place. It's a terrible, horrible place. I hate Vegas.

GUILFOYLE: Happy anniversary, "Five" and our last show.

WILLIAMS: So again, sticking with this year, I just had so much fun when we took a bus ride, a bus ride that took us to Cleveland...

GUTFELD: Yes.

WILLIAMS: ... for the Republican National Convention, but we made stops along the way, and one of the stops along the way was at a farm festival.

PERINO: Agricultural fair.

GUTFELD: It was awesome.

WILLIAMS: Agricultural fair. It was so much fun. But the bus was -0- the bus ride was just too much fun. To be with...

GUILFOYLE: Where's your video? Where is your video?

GUTFELD: Show it. Where's your bus?

WILLIAMS: I don't know. They won't show.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

WILLIAMS: A Democrat in the middle of this crazy country. We have someone from New Florence who votes with her brain. That's right.

That's exactly right. That's what I'm thinking.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

WILLIAMS: And that was great fun because we -- I got to go over to the football hall of fame and throw the ball around with my son and the archivist, who showed me some very valuable football cards.

BOLLING: It was fun, but could we never do another road trip bus ride?

WILLIAMS: You didn't like it?

BOLLING: It was a little rough.

GUILFOYLE: You know what? I would love the bus if it didn't move. If we just, like, sat on it and had fun and you did your little rhymes and your crazy talk.

GUTFELD: I had the best time. I love buses.

GUILFOYLE: And crushed red wine like we did, that was good.

PERINO: I had a great time.

GUTFELD: I enjoyed it.

BOLLING: You were cranking tunes in the back.

GUTFELD: Yes. Drinking wine and having conversations.

GUILFOYLE: And he was like rapping. He was like Vanilla Ice, rapping...

GUTFELD: Please.

GUILFOYLE: ... but with pinot noir. And then I was eating salami. And then spilling orange soda on me. It was fun.

It was the motion sickness thing that was weird.

Greg.

GUTFELD: All right. Remember -- it must have been, like, three months ago when a young fellow started scaling the Trump Tower. And Shep, breaking news stepped in. And then I step into Shep.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

GUTFELD: Shep, do you want me to go get you anything? I can get up here. I can walk over to the coffee place. Do you want some -- you don't want some banana bread or some yogurt?

SHEPARD SMITH, FOX NEWS ANCHOR: No. Banana bread or yogurt?

GUTFELD: Yes.

SMITH: I would probably go for an iced coffee.

GUTFELD: I could get you one and bring it over to the studio.

SMITH: Look who's arrived. There's no milk in this.

GUTFELD: Oh, I'm sorry. But I got the two Equals. And...

SMITH: Who let you on this floor?

GUTFELD: I still have a security pass, believe it or not.

SMITH: That's weird. Thank you so much.

GUTFELD: I got this nice white mike.

SMITH: It's nice. You're going to make fun of our microphone?

GUTFELD: Yes, I am. Why is it white, Shep?

(END VIDEO CLIP)

GUTFELD: We always talk about, you know, because we're on the commentary side about what we do, but...

GUILFOYLE: Opinions.

GUTFELD: ... we have the best news delivery system in the country, and we have the best news anchor in the world. I think Shep is the fastest, smartest person in the business, and when you look at that news deck, he is our Captain Kirk. He's running that deck.

PERINO: You give him three facts, and he can talk for an hour.

GUTFELD: I don't even understand how they do it. But they -- like, we can talk about anything, because we're not beholden to facts. It's just opinions. But he's got a stick. He's got -- you give him two words and he will weave it out into a giant sweater of beauty.

GUILFOYLE: Wow, that was pretty good.

GUTFELD: Thank you very much.

GUILFOYLE: What a winning endorsement of Shepard Smith.

GUTFELD: I read -- by the way, I read this morning CNN had a piece up there saying that FOX changed the media for the worse by increasing political polarization. And I'm thinking the translation is the liberal media had owned the turf for so long, and they wanted to keep it that way, and then FOX showed up and pants them.

GUILFOYLE: So we took back our playground.

GUTFELD: Yes.

GUILFOYLE: All right.

WILLIAMS: Now didn't Shep just once wander through here?

GUTFELD: Yes.

GUILFOYLE: Yes, he did.

PERINO: With the menorah.

GUILFOYLE: That was pretty interesting to too.

My turn now?

GUTFELD: I hope so.

PERINO: This is the best one.

GUILFOYLE: Well, this is probably the inception of "Kimberly's Food Court," right? So everyone found out about my love affair with food. And here is an example of it. In the Fourth of July with the West Point Band playing and boom, the chicken wing eating contest. Take a look at this.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

PERINO: On your marks, get set, go. These are the chicken wings.

GUTFELD: Wow. Oh, my God.

PERINO: You have 10 seconds left. And it's 10, 9, 8, 7, 6...

GUTFELD: Seven-six.

PERINO: ... 5, 4, 3, 2, 1.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

GUTFELD: This is the most amazing -- that is the most amazing footage ever.

GUILFOYLE: Winning.

BOLLING: You know why? Keep watching. Don't you remember what we had to edit out of the end of that?

GUILFOYLE: Because somebody got sick after.

BOLLING: The runner up ended up choking...

GUILFOYLE: He's a choker. He's a choker.

PERINO: You know how sometimes in the packages they'll do speed it up walking.

GUTFELD: You don't need it with this.

PERINO: That is not sped up. That is Kimberly.

GUTFELD: That is real -- real speed.

GUILFOYLE: I crushed it. And Dana gave me the best compliment. She goes, "Any competition I'm in, I want you," and I'm a killer. I'm like undefeated.

GUTFELD: You looked like you knew what you -- is this something you do?

GUILFOYLE: No, I don't go on the circuit. But...

GUTFELD: Are you sure?

GUILFOYLE: ... I do crush wings.

GUTFELD: You could take that -- what's that guy, Joey Chestnut.

GUILFOYLE: I've been working on hot dogs, actually.

GUTFELD: I'm glad.

GUILFOYLE: All right. Anyway...

GUTFELD: I mean, I'm glad because I think you could win. Joey Chestnut, watch out. I know Joey.

WILLIAMS: Oh, my gosh.

PERINO: Want me to help you? We'll be looking forward to the next 20 years and hope you'll still be with us for the ride.

GUTFELD: What is with you?

BOLLING: Our fault.

PERINO: Straight ahead, Matthew is continuing to pummel Florida winds of up to 150 miles per hour. There is immense concern about flooding from storm surges. A live update next.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

GUTFELD: We want to go back now to Florida where Hurricane Matthew is relentlessly pounding the coast. Leland Vitter is with us again from Daytona Beach. Leland, what is the latest there?

LELAND VITTERT, FOX NEWS CORRESPONDENT: Well, Greg, those counterclockwise winds still coming through here, the last bands of Matthew as it quite literally goes out to sea. You can see the famous Daytona Beach pier still standing. Still, though, very, very heavy surf.

And when you look up here, out towards the boardwalk and then down, you do get a sense that there has been some damage and destruction. But it's easy, after a storm like this, when you don't see the decimation, to go, "It's not really a big deal."

Senator Marco Rubio down here a little earlier, asked him what he thought. He said, "What you don't see is most important, like this beach erosion." Not quite as obvious to the untrained eye. He said it will take a lot of time and a lot of money to repair this, which is critical for the infrastructure and for the tourism here in Volusia County in Daytona Beach.

So much of their money comes from tourism. And to the point of money, the senator said it's going to take a lot of a time and a lot of money to repair this beach. And you know, Greg, when a senator says it's going to take a lot of time and a lot of money, it's going to take a whole lot of both. Back to you.

GUTFELD: Exactly. Be safe, Leland. Talk to you soon.

All right. Let's go now to chief meteorologist Rick Reichmuth, tracking the storm in the FOX Weather Center.

Hey, Rick.

RICK REICHMUTH, FOX NEWS CHIEF METEOROLOGIST: Hey, yes, and we've always been planning that the storm surge is not going to be as bad in Daytona Beach. It's going to be worse once you get up from around Jacksonville to Charleston. And that's what we have going on now, onshore wind piling all that water right there in the cross areas of the coast.

The storm has weakened a little bit. Good news. It is still right on that verge between a Cap 2 and Cap 3 hurricane. Winds of 110 miles an hour and the pressure really low. So when you have low pressure, it is still a very, strong storm right there, and it's right off shore. The center of the storm is about 35 miles off the shore. And it's been moving towards the north, but because the way the coast line moves, it's moving towards the north and it's going to start getting closer tonight into tomorrow morning here across parts of Georgia and in towards the Carolinas.

Flooding concerns are going to be a big story as we move forward. The worst of the rain is yet to come, and that's going to be in South Carolina and North Carolina. Some spots up to 15 inches -- guys.

GUTFELD: Thanks, Rick.

REICHMUTH: You bet.

GUTFELD: All right. "One More Thing" is up next.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

BOLLING: Time for "One More Thing." K.G. kicks it off.

GUILFOYLE: All right. Well, this week, as you guys know at home, my little man, Ro-Dog, celebrated his 10th birthday. So we have a big game truck party tomorrow. And these are some photos we got to take with our friend, amazing photographer Kevin Kendrick Photography. You can check his stuff out at KPKPhoto.com. So it was really a fun day. And you can see the big teeth, the big smile there, right, in so many of the photos.

Anyway, it was really nice, and they grow up so fast. So give your kids extra hugs and kisses at home and feel so lucky to have them every day in my life. He's really, truly a treasure, little Ro-Dog.

Can you believe how big he's gotten?

BOLLING: Handsome boy. Handsome boy.

GUILFOYLE: And thanks again to Kevin for taking care of us. Very nice. He posted those later -- and there he is with his dad, as well.

BOLLING: Very nice. Very nice.

GUILFOYLE: All right. Eric.

BOLLING: Lots of accusations have been lobbed at Hillary Clinton. You know, taking money from lobbyists, pro-NAFTA, taking money from Wall Street. But they're not from Donald Trump; they're from this guy, her biggest supporter on the campaign trail. Watch.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

BARACK OBAMA, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES (THEN SENATOR OBAMA): Senator Clinton is the same person who has taken more money from lobbyists than any other candidate, Democratic or Republican. This is the same person who took money from financial folks on Wall Street and then voted for a bankruptcy bill that makes it harder for folks right here in Pennsylvania to get a fair shake.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

BOLLING: He went on and on and on. Again, that's 2008 when he ran against Hillary Clinton. And by the way, RNC, cut that ad. Cut that "One More Thing," make that one of your next ads.

PERINO: I think that -- that some of that is one of the reasons why Hillary Clinton has had such a hard time with millennials. The relentless pounding that she took by President Obama when they were running against each other and then you had the Bernie Sanders with the same type of message this year. And you'll in some of this polling, the numbers with millennials are really bad.

BOLLING: Those -- they should get out there. They should start using some of those.

PERINO: Mine is we're going to celebrate a colleague of ours who's in the Washington, D.C., bureau, and that is James Rosen, who has compiled and edited a beautiful book written by -- well, it's a compilation of work by William F. Buckley Jr. It's called "A Torch Kept Lit." And he was on "FOX & Friends" this morning, talking about it.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

JAMES ROSEN, AUTHOR, "A TORCH KEPT LIT": This is a collection of 50 eulogies that Bill Buckley delivered or wrote over the course of his career for the towering figures of his time. If you love history, politics, art, music, sailing, spy novels, all those things that Bill Buckley loved, you're going to love this book.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

PERINO: I have to say that the smartest people I know always read the obituaries so they can learn about people, including my husband, and Tucker Carlson.

GUILFOYLE: Very nice.

PERINO: Reads the obituaries. So, congratulations to James.

BOLLING: Tucker reads the obituaries?

PERINO: Yes, he says he always does, because that's where you learn about America and great people.

GUTFELD: He's just happy he's not there. "Made it another day."

GUILFOYLE: Tucker sees dead people.

PERINO: It's true.

BOLLING: Greg, you're up.

GUTFELD: All right. My Saturday show, 10 p.m., G.G. Show. You've got Tyrus, he's going to be good. Going to Comic Con, the great pro wrestler. Rob Long, you know him, you love him, great writer. Kat Timpf, Jessica Tarlov, it's going to be great. We're going to have a debate preview.

I'm also breaking a big story. Tech billionaires are investing mucho bucks to find out whether or we live in a matrix, i.e. this is all simulated.

BOLLING: I believe that.

GUILFOYLE: I strongly believe it.

GUTFELD: They believe there's a 50-50 chance that it could be true.

GUILFOYLE: Somebody trapped me here with you.

GUTFELD: Yes. Is this the Secrets to Happiness? I can't remember. Maybe not.

But you know what? If you're a polar bear and it's hot out, this is actually a polar bear cub enjoying himself in a pile of ice. A neat fact about this adorable polar bear cub, that when he becomes an adult, he will be able to rip you to shreds. Everything adorable as an animal gets big, and they will try to eat you. It is a fact. Do not forget it for the rest of your life.

GUTFELD: See, that's how much I enjoy the hot tub. I can relate to this. If that was a hot tub, forget it, amazing.

WILLIAMS: All right.

BOLLING: All right, Juan, you're up.

WILLIAMS: So I was reading an obituary this week.

GUILFOYLE: Oh, my God.

WILLIAMS: It was for a recluse named Rod Temperton. And to my surprise, Mr. Temperton wrote some of my favorite songs and probably some of your favorite song, too. Here are two by the King of Pop, Michael Jackson.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

(MUSIC: MICHAEL JACKSON'S "THRILLER")

(MUSIC: MICHAEL JACKSON'S "GET ON THE FLOOR")

(END VIDEO CLIP)

WILLIAMS: So that's pretty amazing that Rod Temperton wrote both of those, but he also wrote "Boogie Nights."

(MUSIC: "BOOGIE NIGHTS")

GUTFELD: Great song.

WILLIAMS: Temperton passed away age of 66 in London last week.

GUILFOYLE: Aw. Too young.

WILLIAMS: But his songs, his songs are going to be on the radio forever.

GUTFELD: Kudos to you, Juan, for giving, you know...

GUILFOYLE: Credit.

GUTFELD: ... credit to the writer. They never get any credit.

WILLIAMS: He deserves it. He was great.

BOLLING: We've got to leave it right there. Adrienne's favorite concert was the "Thriller" concert.

WILLIAMS: It's awesome.

BOLLING: Going to leave it right there. That's it for us. Stay with us, FOX News Channel, throughout the night, continuing coverage of Hurricane Matthew. And we'll see you back here Sunday, live at 5 p.m. Eastern, hours before the second presidential debate. "Special Report" coming up in four seconds. Three, two, one...
