Trump presses Putin on Russian meddling in election

President Trump and Vladimir Putin meet for first time; reaction and analysis on 'The Five'

 

This is a rush transcript from "The Five," July 7, 2017. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

DANA PERINO, FOX NEWS HOST: Hello, everyone. I'm Dana Perino along with Lisa Boothe, Juan Williams, Jesse Watters, and Greg Gutfeld. It's 9:00 in New York City and this is "The Five."

High stake in Hamburg as President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin meet face-to-face for the first time today at the G20 Summit in Germany.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

DONALD TRUMP, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: President Putin and I have been discussing various statements then I think it's been going very well. We have had some very, very good talks. We're going to have a talk now and we continue. But we look forward to a lot of very positive things happening. For Russia and the United States and for everybody concerned and it's an honor to be with you.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

PERINO: It was scheduled to last about 30 minutes but the two leaders met for over two hours even ignoring the First Lady who generally tried to get them to wrap it up. And it appears there was at least one big accomplishment, an agreement to begin unlimited cease-fire in Syria beginning on Sunday. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson who was in the room where it happened gave us some insight as to what else they discussed.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

REX TILLERSON, SECRETARY OF STATE: The president opened the meeting with President Putin by raising the concerns of the American people regarding Russian interference in the 2016 election. They had a very robust and lengthy exchange on the subject. The president pressed President Putin on more than one occasion regarding Russian involvement.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

PERINO: Meanwhile, Russian foreign minister Sergei Lavrov cast the conversation in a different like claiming that President Trump accepted Putin's assurances that Russia did not meddle in the election. Now, Greg, before we delve in all of that, Hamburg or Homburg?

GREG GUTFELD, FOX NEWS HOST: Ba- Hamburg. That's what I say. And CNN could say that too. Because Donald Trump started the meeting with Putin by raising concerns over the election meddling according to Tillerson. That sound of a toilet flushing right now coming from Atlantic is CNN's bogus narrative. Because they said according to a source --

PERINO: Right.

GUTFELD: -- that he would not confront him over that, and he did. So maybe they might refute that.

PERINO: This was also, they did something like this just a few weeks ago. Remember they had it corrected, they said --

JESSE WATTERS, FOX NEWS HOST: Comey was going to tell this and that --

PERINO: Yes.

GUTFELD: Yes.

WATTERS: -- and he didn't.

GUTFELD: Yes. What did he do and I'm really and I don't know if I'm doing it on my network because I've always watch the opposition or the -- people who set fires and throw rocks at people are not called protesters. They are arsonists, are protesters. People who bombed buildings, you could call them demolitionist. But all day I was at the gym, not all day.

(LAUGHTER)

GUTFELD: Because if you're at a gym in New York City, all you're going to see is MSNBC or CNN.

LISA BOOTHE, FOX NEWS HOST: CNN.

GUTFELD: CNN bores people to tears and MSNBC doesn't offend you. So, you're watching this, and all they're saying is a protester is throwing rocks. A protest is setting fire. No. They are not a protester, they are a thug.

WATTERS: Yes.

GUTFELD: They are a criminal. And then he equate the cops with the protesters, they go, the protesters did, the cops and the protesters are fighting. You know, the cops started it. No, the cops are there because the thugs are there.

PERINO: Anarchists. The anarchists --

GUTFELD: They are not even anarchist, they don't have any beliefs. They have no alternatives. They are there because they get cameras and then MSNBC just films them and treat it so romantically, it makes you just scream.

JUAN WILLIAMS, FOX NEWS HOST: You know, what makes me nuts though is that these people are anti-globalists --

GUTFELD: Yes.

WILLIAMS: Anti-capitalists. Some of them are anarchists as it is described. And a lot of them are anti-Trump. But you see them somehow as all thugs. But guess what --

GUTFELD: What?

WILLIAMS: I think a lot of them are in-line with Donald Trump's anger at free-trade. Anger at climate deals --

GUTFELD: Find one who is against the climate deal, I will give you $1,000.
Find one, find one --

(CROSSTALK)

GUTFELD: Find one thug who is against climate change a thousand bucks.

WILLIAMS: No. But you want to just call these guys thugs. But I don't hear you say that when Trump people who are antitrade.

GUTFELD: And I'll throw rocks and --

(CROSSTALK)

GUTFELD: Again, $1,000. Find a Trump protester who sets the car on fire.

WILLIAMS: This is like you draw a circle, you know, Trump people here and Bernie people there.

WATTERS: Yes.

WILLIAMS: And you know what? They kind of meet.

GUTFELD: But they are not violent.

PERINO: But guess what, Juan.

WILLIAMS: Yes.

PERINO: We are going to talk about the protesters later on in the show.

GUTFELD: Are we?

PERINO: Yes.

GUTFELD: Sorry about that.

WILLIAMS: No big deal.

PERINO: Let's talk just a little bit about the accomplishments that was made today, Jesse which is basically, we finally have some movement to at least get a cease-fire in a small part of Syria in the Southwest region, with the hope that a lot of details ought to be worked out that some humanitarian assistance can finally get to the innocent people that are there.

WATTERS: It's good news on the surface. This could have been gift wrapped beforehand to send it up like a big achievement after the meeting. And who knows how long it is going to last. So, just keep our fingers cross. I thought it was a very high stakes meeting, I think Donald Trump made the country proud. I think the media thinks that Donald Trump's going to come into a meeting like this with his fly down and start shining Putin's shoes.
So, I think when he goes in there, the expectations helps him. The optics were good, he won the handshake game big time.

PERINO: Oh, he did.

WATTERS: He looks comfortable, at ease and serious. And then Melania was seated next to Vladimir Putin at the dinner. They both speak German. So, that looks really good. On substance like you said, we have that accomplishment in Syria but they also talked about cyber security and trade, and Ukraine.

PERINO: I did think that was a little weird. That we have Lavrov, the foreign minister of Russia, Lisa announcing that we apparently are going to do some joint initiative with Russia on cyber security.

BOOTHE: Yes. That is a little ironic.

(LAUGHTER)

PERINO: Really?

BOOTHE: Look, I also think that sort of this build up regarding election meddling, to me just seems grossly over -- because if you look at all these other issues that were facing as a nation, and things that are President Trump should talk to Putin about and talk to Putin about. As you mentioned earlier, 500,000 Syrians killed throughout the civil war. We've got ISIS in Syria as well which is obviously a huge threat.

Russia increased trade with North Korea by 73 percent in the first two months of 2017. They're also trying to box the U.S. in with China, what we're facing in North Korea right now. North Korea now can launch an ICBM within range of Alaska. So, with all of the things that we're facing right now and all the threats that we're facing, not to diminish the election meddling, but it doesn't seem quite out there with some of these other things.

PERINO: Well, Senate Minority Whip Dick Durbin, he had a little something to say about President Trump in the meeting. Let's listen to that.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Senator, what's the most positive thing you have to say about Vladimir Putin and the most negative?

SEN. DICK DURBIN, D-ILL., SENATE DEMOCRATIC WHIP: Well, the most positive thing is he is gifted in his knowledge of history and our president is not. He certainly knows how to meet with foreign leaders and to push his agenda. Our president has limited experience in that. He knows the intelligence agencies of Russia since he was a member of the KGB for a period of time. Our president tends to deride his own intelligence agencies and their findings. So, he is in a strong hand in this negotiation compared to our president.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

PERINO: Jesse?

WATTERS: Dick Durbin and the Democrats criticized Donald Trump for kissing Putin's ring for the last six months. He just kept praise on Vladimir Putin like I've never heard Donald Trump ever say in his entire public career. And I think a lot of people like to believe that Vladimir Putin is this KJ cerebral calculating guy that gets his agenda through. That's just because he walked all over President Obama for the last eight years.

And got everything he wanted in Syria. Saved Obama's skin after the red line was crossed. He came into the Ukraine. President Obama gave the Ukrainians, our allies food instead of heavy artillery. And then interfered in our election allegedly and President Obama did nothing. So, of course Vladimir Putin looks like he is a very strong leader that gets everything done when he faces President Obama who wasn't even competing.

WILLIAMS: I think that it was Donald Trump who had such high praise for Vladimir Putin. I think what Dick Durbin was doing was comparing the two and by comparison saying Putin looks much better. But let me just say --

WATTERS: I've never seen any --

WILLIAMS: Let me just say, hang on, hang on. Give me a break here. Let me just say, it was Donald Trump today, who sticks out his hand, I don't know where he won the handshake by the way. But anyway, he sticks out his hand --

WATTERS: I'll show you .

WILLIAMS: -- and says it's an honor to meet you. It is an honor go met this guy who is invading people --

WATTERS: That's diplomacy.

WILLIAMS: No, no, no, no, that's diplomacy. No! Because this is the guy that interfered in an American election that seeks to undermine democracy.

WATTERS: Lisa didn't vowed to him, Juan.

WILLIAMS: Let me just say, in addition to which, it's just striking to me that you get one set of description of the events from Sergey Lavrov and another set from Tillerson.

BOOTHE: Welcome to political --

WATTERS: Who do you believe? I think the Russians --

WILLIAMS: You know who I believe? I believe Tillerson when he said what we've tried to do is not focused on the hacking or the spread of this information, we're trying to move forward and tried to get them to promise not to do it again.

WATTERS: How weak is that?

(CROSSTALK)

WATTERS: At least he's not John Kerry giving away billions of dollars --

PERINO: -- for a second because it's interesting the left has spent the last eight months or so. Dissing the Russians. Right?

WATTERS: Yes.

PERINO: And say, well, you can't trust them. And then today, Lavrov is out with his spin of the meeting, and they believe Lavrov.

GUTFELD: Well, the narrative that started was, even before they came out of the meeting, that Putin was already the victor. If you are watching, he already won. Their logic was that just by meeting Putin, Putin has won and that the longer the meeting went, the more respect Putin got. If the media had gone to see the Titanic, they would say the boat won. Because they are so screwed. They're confirmation bias. They now close their vision so narrowly. They can't see anything. Anything including, you know, that Dick Durbin.

(LAUGHTER)

BOOTHE: The Democratic Party is way overreached here. The Democratic Party is way overreached here on the Russia issue. I mean, you saw recently Senator Chris Murphy saying, oh, maybe we should slow it down with all this Russia talk. Four special elections lost. The Democratic National Committee raised, I think 4.3 million which is the least amount they have since 2003. And I think that this is really disservice to the party in trying to run this narrative.

And further, Durbin is basically trying to paint the President as ill prepared to be President of the United States. What did President Obama ever do before he was president? He never ran anything. How was he possibly set up to be president of the United States?

GUTFELD: Community organizer.

BOOTHE: Durbin endorsed him. Durbin should behind him in 2008 to be president of the United States. So, I mean, what a joke!

WILLIAMS: Wait a second. Wait a second. Wait a second! This guy was a state senator and a United States senator.

BOOTHE: One term --

WILLIAMS: I don't think Donald was -- any political office.

BOOTHE: He ran a billion dollar -- on.

WILLIAMS: But here's the thing.

PERINO: Last point, Juan. We've got to go.

WILLIAMS: Okay. So, here's the thing. The guy that I believe who is our guy, Rex Tillerson, Secretary of State says, basically we just have an -- disagreement. That's a quote, with the Russians, with regards to Russian interference in the election. Putin says, no, we didn't do it. And apparently Donald Trump says, well, okay, but let's move on --

(CROSSTALK)

No Tillerson our guy, our guy.

WATTERS: We didn't say apparently we'll move on. I don't think that's --

GUTFELD: We should invade Russia is what you're saying.

WILLIAMS: Obey Russia.

GUTFELD: No, invade Russia.

WILLIAMS: Invade. No, but I am just saying, you know, Trump is buys tweeting about fake media before --

WATTERS: Maybe we should be as tough as President Obama was on Russia.

WILLIAMS: Yes. Yes. Yes.

PERINO: We have more to come because yesterday was graduation day for the New York, I'm sorry the new cop of New York's finest at the NYPD. But the city's mayor did not attend instead Bill de Blasio went to Germany to attend the protests, we are just talking about at the G20 Summit. That uproar is next.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

WILLIAMS: A second day of protest by anti-globalization activist underway in Hamburg, Germany and they're getting an unexpected visitor. New York City's Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio is under fire again this time for jetting off to Germany to attend the protest and missing yesterday's police academy graduation ceremony here in the big apple. De Blasio scheduled to deliver the Keynote Address tomorrow in Hamburg against the Trump administration's policies. And today, he explains his decisions to leave town the day after an NYPD officer was assassinated.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

MAYOR BILL DE BLASIO, NEW YORK CITY: I was invited by the government of Hamburg. Both the city government and the state government which is run by the Social Democratic Party and the Green Party. They've shared the view that a lot of us do that while we've seen many national government unwilling to address climate change of stumbling to address the larger issues of income inequality or migration. You know, these issues have to be addressed to the local level.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

WILLIAMS: So, Greg, I know that you're hard on the protesters and here is their Keynote speaker, our Mayor Bill de Blasio.

GUTFELD: I'd call them human garbage but why insult garbage.

WILLIAMS: Oh, no!

GUTFELD: You know, skipping a police ceremony to egg on people who attack the police. He may not throw a brick but he's legitimizing the mayhem. You know, no wonder people in New York City hate him. Homelessness is up 40 percent. They're finding corpses in the ponds at Central Park. A police officer is getting executed and his priority is a global idea, not about New York City.

There's only really one reason why he became mayor because the two previous mayors dramatically improved the city so much that you could actually take a risk on this bozo. You could actually spend the capital that grow under Giuliani and Bloomberg. I wish we could go back to those mayors. Because this is the world's greatest city and we have the world's worst mayor who skip town. If he was so proud of this, why didn't he tell anybody? Why didn't he leave without telling anybody? He's an embarrassment.

WILLIAMS: So, Lisa, apparently yesterday, Greg and I would joke about this, welcome to hell, that's what the protesters, the anti-globalist, the anarchist had to say. But this event that the mayor is going to speak at tomorrow, is called Hamburg Shows Attitude and apparently the Mayor de Blasio says, it's important that Americans be there to show that we have a variety of opinions.

BOOTHE: No, I mean, let's call this what it is. He's shirking his responsibilities in search of the political spotlight. That's what he's trying to do. He's trying to build his national profile and he's ignoring important things that he should be doing here in New York to do so. But look, police unions in 2014 accused him for encouraging and posturing an antipolice environment that led to the death of two police officers.

Does this really surprise anyone that once again he is skipping out something that is important for a men and women in blue to then stand with protesters and stand with these rioters who are literally burning down cars and burning down a city? It should come to the surprise of no one.

WILLIAMS: Well, to be fair to him, he says, he'll be back for the funeral that's going to be held this weekend.

GUTFELD: Nice of him.

PERINO: I'm sure that he'll be very welcome when he gets there. Interesting about the protesters or thugs, whatever we call them. You know, I would love to know where they're all coming from and if they work. Because what they're protesting are basically the system that we all living under and that we are trying to make a livings in order to fund government services, which I would imagine many of them are actually on.

GUTFELD: They're disguised by the way, let's not forget. They are all dressed in black.

PERINO: Yes.

GUTFELD: How is that peaceful? It's more intimidating and fascist to dress in a uniform in disguise.

PERINO: Many in masks.

GUTFELD: Yes, in masks.

WILLIAMS: So, I want to ask you about the politics of this, Jesse. So, is he as Lisa suggests, simply raising his profile, do you think he is campaigning to be a possible Democratic contender for 2020?

WATTERS: Oh, do I hope so, Juan?

(LAUGHTER)

WATTERS: I love to see Republicans running against that guy.

PERINO: De Blasio versus Trump.

WATTERS: Oh, it doesn't get any better than that.

PERINO: Oh, please!

WATTERS: If you're worried on the ticket, we have a real fun campaign. Any event where de Blasio is the Keynote speaker is a terrible event.

(LAUGHTER)

I will say this though. I know why he would -- his son is studying abroad in Germany.

WILLIAMS: Yes. Yes.

WATTERS: And you know when you're son or your daughter studying abroad, in Europe, you happen to make a trip over there. Visit them --

GUTFELD: Free ticket.

WATTERS: Exactly.

PERINO: Right.

WATTERS: So, what he did was, he didn't want to pay for it.

GUTFELD: Right.

WATTERS: So, he got this left wing group to say, hey, come over. Killed two birds with one stone. I got this invitation to go see my son.

GUTFELD: Yep.

WATTERS: But it's a terrible timing because the guy always steps in it. He can't plow the streets. The subways don't run, the trains are all broken. There is homeless people everywhere. NYPD officers are turning their backs to him. He is the worst mayor and New York City is -- and we don't have anybody running against him.

WILLIAMS: Oh, this is what I am going to say. I'm going to say to all of you --

WATTERS: You don't have anybody!

GUTFELD: Kimberly Guilfoyle!

WILLIAMS: Jesse Watters is announcing his candidacy --

(CROSSTALK)

(LAUGHTER)

GUTFELD: Oh, what are you going to do in a second term, Dana? You're just going to flip out?

PERINO: Well, this is the truth that he won by some of the --

GUTFELD: It wasn't close. There was a 30 percent turnout. Right?

PERINO: Thirty percent turnout and was like --

WILLIAMS: And apparently his people turnout.

GUTFELD: Yes.

WILLIAMS: Ahead, a liberal activist calls for Jihad against the Trump administration. But now some of her defenders are saying, it's all a misunderstanding. We will let you decide, coming up next.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

BOOTHE: Yesterday Greg told you about a liberal activist calling for Jihad against the Trump administration. In case you missed it, take a listen to Linda Sarsour, a lead organizer of the Women's March on Washington speaking here at a conference last weekend.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

LINDA SARSOUR, LEAD ORGANIZER, WOMEN'S MARCH ON WASHINGTON: I hope that we when we stand up to those who oppress our communities, that Allah accepts from us that as a form of jihad, that we are struggling against tyrants and rulers not only abroad, in the Middle East or in the other side of the world but here in this United States of America where you have fascists and white supremacists and Islamophobes reining in the White House.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

BOOTHE: Well, her words were pretty clear but a Time Magazine columnist saying that Sarsour is being misunderstood. That she wasn't talking about violence when mentioning Jihad to resist the White House.

Juan, I am going to go to you on this. Because I don't think you can look at these comments in a vacuum either. I mean, so look, she has post for photograph with an individual who was a Hamas operative. She's also championed a woman who was involved with two bombings and was convicted in Israel of killing two people and injuring nine. She said that the underwear bomber was a CIA agent. So, she's got a history -- she encourages attacks on the Israel defense forces. I mean, this is a woman with a pattern of saying pretty outrageous things here. You're obviously a reasonable man.

WILLIAMS: Don't listen to him.

BOOTHE: Juan, so why does the left continued to prop her up as some sort of hero? President Obama also named her a champion of change.

WILLIAMS: Well, clearly, she is an advocate. And I think you have to give some credit to somebody who is a Muslim leader in America in 2017.

GUTFELD: Not her.

WILLIAMS: But it's not very popular and especially when she uses the word like Jihad which is going to generate a lots of negative static immediately, and she did it, and I don't think there's any defending the fact that she did it. But the fact that she is willing to say, you know what? My community is under fire, and stand up for it, Lisa, I have to give you some credit.

BOOTHE: Greg, Greg, is she the person?

GUTFELD: I'm sorry, I mean, she's conflating her beliefs in Sharia Law which is advocating, promotes the killing of gays and the stoning of --

WILLIAMS: She believes in Sharia Law --

GUTFELD: She advocates for Sharia Law. So, what she's doing, is she's conflating radical Islamic belief with the community. That is something that everybody accuses the right of doing. Oh my God! You believe all Muslims are radicals. No! She actually conflates the two. She is the worst thing for that community. What's hilarious is we see the media blaming memes for being violent and then bending over backwards to explain the nuances of a word that means basically replacing Western values with an intolerant belief system that, I mean, how can you be a liberal and promote somebody that actually believes in a belief system that is anti-gay that would punish rape victims. Also she liked the co-conspirator or the World Trade bombings in `93. I mean, this is a bad egg.

BOOTHE: Jesse, what's your take on this?

WATTERS: I believe she is un-American and if she was to live the country and come back, I think she should face the travel ban. I think we all know what Jihad means. The definition if right here. A fight against the enemies of Islam. It's very clear and she's a Bernie Sanders surrogates.
What is it with Bernie Sanders tracking all of these crazy people? I think the Scalise shooter was a Bernie Sanders campaign volunteer.

WILLIAMS: Let me get this straight. Are you a Trump supporter who is claiming about crazy people in other people's political camps?

WATTERS: No, but a lot of the Bernie supporters keep in waging violence against innocent people so I think Bernie needs to check himself. What I really don't like is she says she doesn't also want to assimilate to the rest of America. I think that assimilation is the quintessential most American quality. This is a melting pot. If you're Muslim and you don't want to assimilate, I say love it or leave it.

PERINO: So, on Mark (inaudible) tonight. I had a chance to fill in. We had a (inaudible) on the show. He was there at the event. He works for care -- care at the group.

GUTFELD: Ironically, okay.

PERINO: He says that assimilation is not the goal of Americans, that integration is. I didn't have a chance to talk to him about that because he would not shut up. But, to me, integration basically means (inaudible) which is basically yeah, you can come and live next door.

Assimilation is about an agreement about the ideals of America, upon which our constitution was written. There is a fundamental misunderstanding here. Plus, he also said that they are just trying to reclaim the word "jihad," as if have perverted the word "jihad."

(LAUGHTER)

PERINO: That was not our fault.

WILLIAMS: You know, I just think it's so important. Let me just...

BOOTHE: Sure. Go ahead, Juan.

WILLIAMS: I just want to say that I thought what Dana said and what Jesse said is so true, that assimilation, and this goes beyond the Muslim community, but in general, in our country with such high levels of immigrants, is an absolute essential tenant of us remaining a united America.

BOOTHE: Yup. Sure. I mean, you can look at areas like (inaudible), Al Qaeda, Belgium...

WILLIAMS: Well, look at what goes on in Canada sometimes. Remember, they almost lost Montreal.

BOOTHE: Well, next, Jesse caught up with some WWE fans tonight to get their take on the Trump versus CNN wrestling video. You are going to want to stay there because you are going to want to see this. Coming up next.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

WATTERS: There's nothing that gets on President Trump's nerves like fake news. But he was able to have some fun with that this weekend tweeting that CNN smack down video.

(START VIDEO CLIP)

(END VIDEO CLIP)

WATTERS: CNN of course didn't get the joke. And I want to see what the wrestling fans thought about it. So I went to Madison Square Garden tonight to get their take.

(START VIDEO CLIP)

WATTERS: Did you see the Trump CNN wrestling video?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yeah.

WATTERS: What did you think about it?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I just started laughing. I love it.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I thought it was great. I love everything Trump does, best president we ever had.

WATTERS: What do you think of the video?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Enjoyed it. I like Trump. He's going to rule the world.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: President Trump attacked CNN the way he is going to attack fake news and the way he's going to make America great again.

WATTERS: Does the Trump CNN video make you want to do violence to anybody at CNN?

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Of course not.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: The president has never inspired violence in my heart.

WATTERS: What is more fake, professional wrestling or CNN?

(LAUGHTER)

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Maybe CNN.

WATTERS: What's more fake, CNN or wrestling?

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Wrestling.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: CNN for sure.

WATTERS: I'm not going to put you in a headlock because I don't want to mess your hair.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Thank you.

WATTERS: Go ahead.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Okay, that's good.

WATTERS: Watters and this is my belt.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

(LAUGHTER)

WATTERS: So, Juan, you know what struck me about that is no one said that the CNN-Trump wrestling video inspired them to go body slam with anybody like that.

WILLIAMS: No, but by the way, does your mother talk to you about the way your pants and that belt...

(CROSSTALK)

WILLIAMS: I was worried about that.

WATTERS: You know, Juan...

WILLIAMS: I know I call for a little appropriation.

WATTERS: Guilty as charged.

(LAUGHTER)

WILLIAMS: By the way, Trump is still honestly, you said last weekend...

WATTERS: Good on the champ right there.

WILLIAMS: I think that the "W" is for "Watters' World."

WILLIAMS: But Trump is still on this today. He's over there in Germany, and he's still tweeting about fake news before his meeting with Putin, and he is even saying crazy stuff like everybody is talking about John Podesta. I mean, what is going on? I mean, that's a joke as you said, but there is some seriousness to this.

WATTERS: Maybe he ran into some John Podesta people in Hamburg.

BOOTHE: Eating a hamburger.

WATTERS: Obviously, the people that are really out there on the streets in this country are not taking the video that seriously.

PERINO: Wrestling fans look like fun.

WATTERS: They are.

PERINO: Those are good events. They are making fun of it. Jessica Yellin who used to be a CNN reporter at the White House, I think up here in New York, she is now at University of Southern California as a fellow at the school there. She wrote an oped today. I think it was in L.A. Times, that said, CNN and the rest of media need to stop taking the bait.

WATTERS: Yup.

PERINO: And just do the news and focus on the journalism. That's great.

(LAUGHTER)

BOOTHE: (inaudible) used to be WWF?

WILLIAMS: Yes.

WATTERS: Yes.

BOOTHE: My older brother used to watch it and then literally practiced some moves on me.

WATTERS: That's why you're so tough.

BOOTHE: That's why I'm so tough.

WATTERS: You say, thank you, older brother.

BOOTHE: Clearly there is a disconnect between the way that this video was being covered and what actual people say. I think most people watched it and laughed. Is this what the president should be tweeting out? No. But, is it funny? Yes. And does the media overreach? Absolutely. When they do overreach and they do overreact, it actually ends up hurting them.

Because Americans at home like the ones who you talked to on the street, no longer believe the media and no longer deem them as credible. And also in the overreaching, they get their facts wrong in effort to build the narrative as opposed to actually focusing on the facts and wanting to make sure that their stories are 100 percent correct.

PERINO: No one likes a winder.

WATTERS: Gutfeld. Speaking of winder, Gutfeld.

(LAUGHTER)

GUTFELD: I don't really wind. I'm so tired of you saying that.

(LAUGHTER)

GUTFELD: Anyway, if you cannot take a joke, then President Trump is going to drive you nuts for the next eight years.

WILLIAMS: Right.

GUTFELD: Because he has a sense of humor. Do you guys remember, I'm older than some of you here, "Bewitched." "Bewitched" had a next door neighbor named Mrs. Kravitz. She was always nosy. She was always complaining. She was trying to figure out what was going on in the house. That's CNN. CNN and a lot of people in the media now have turned into Mrs. Kravitz because Donald Trump lives next door. And they can't figure out what that guy is doing. He's a warlock.

PERINO: Tomorrow, there will be a mean CNN logo on Mrs. Kravitz's head.

(CROSSTALK)

WATTERS: All right. Can you hear what "The Five" is cooking?

(LAUGHTER)

WATTERS: Stay right here. "Facebook Friday" is up next.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

GUTFELD: "Facebook Friday." Your questions answered now. I guess I'm going to start with Dana because this is the kind of your wheelhouse. From Ruth T. If you had the opportunity to speak to a group of high school or college students, what subject would you address? I think this is more appropriate for high school students but you can go high school or college.

PERINO: What subject?

GUTFELD: Yes.

PERINO: I think it's interesting because we were just talking yesterday about how in Chicago, the mayor has just instituted this new requirement that you have to submit your life plan or basically you have to have a plan up at high school before you can get your diploma.

GUTFELD: Yeah.

PERINO: And my initial instinct was, oh gosh, does the government really need to get involved? Juan and I talked about this on the story last night.

GUTFELD: That's the point.

PERINO: That I don't think you need a life plan. That you just need to go and start working.

GUTFELD: Working, there you go.

PERINO: Don't sit around waiting for the perfect job. Just start work even if you're in high school.

GUTFELD: You could start it there.

PERINO: I have so many friends whose nieces, nephews, children, whatever, are taking the summer off to get ready for college.

GUTFELD: No.

PERINO: That's ridiculous.

GUTFELD: Get a job, the sooner the better. Jesse?

WATTERS: I would do interviewing skills. A lot of people come in and they do the interview and they say what they want. You know, in five years, I would like to be doing this. I would like an office. I would like a raise. No, you say, I will do whatever you want for five years, and then hopefully I will get health insurance.

GUTFELD: There you go.

(LAUGHTER)

BOOTHE: I don't know if it's a subject per se but -- I don't know. I think high school can be tough, right? Kids get bullied. It can be sort of a tough period of life. We are kind of trying to figure ourselves out. Like what Dana was saying, trying to -- thinking that you have to have this life plan. You're looking so far ahead when in reality, like, you're so young.

And so I would just tell kids that, you know, this is going four years of your life, and you are going to move on to college and things are going to change. You can go on and do whatever you want. As Dana said, life takes unexpected turns. Making life plan is not necessary.

WATTERS: Don't play or anything. Live it up. Go to the beach.

GUTFELD: Yeah.

BOOTHE: Enjoy yourself, do whatever you want.

(LAUGHTER)

GUTFELD: I have no idea on what you said. Juan?

(LAUGHTER)

WILLIAMS: I've been in this situation and I say to young people all the time, surprise yourself. Because having been a journalist my whole life, I get to meet a lot of famous people who are greatly accomplished.

GUTFELD: You're welcome.

(LAUGHTER)

WILLIAMS: Yeah, like Greg Gutfeld.

BOOTHE: And Jesse and his WWE belt.

WILLIAMS: Yeah, I love that belt.

GUTFELD: So what you tell them?

WILLIAMS: Well, you know, I mean, you think about people like Ronald Reagan. Ronald Reagan was having fun broadcasting baseball games. Look what that led to.

GUTFELD: Right.

WILLIAMS: Nelson Mandela, you know what, I don't want to grow up in a travel situation. I want to go to big C and learn how to be a boxer. Look what happened to that guy.

GUTFELD: The thing is if you have the drive, somehow the lane will end up where you're supposed to be, is what you're saying.

WILLIAMS: Yeah, I think if you go out there with some passion, you will find yourself.

GUTFELD: I would say I would try to grab them before they get to college and I would say, do not major in gender studies or any identity-centered studies because the only job you are going to be able to get is teaching that.

WATTERS: Yeah.

GUTFELD: Because no one is going to want to hire a humorless goal. Because that's what you're going to be. You're going to see everything through the identity prism...

WATTERS: And then will hire you.

GUTFELD: You think they will hire you.

BOOTHE: Also marriage and family lead to greater wealth in life, that's a fact.

GUTFELD: Interesting.

WILLIAMS: By the way, most important decision.

GUTFELD: What?

WILLIAMS: Who you marry.

GUTFELD: Oh, very good point.

BOOTHE: Some of us have yet to make that decision.

(LAUGHTER)

GUTFELD: Yes. All right. This is a great one, from Jeff L. Friday, it's early. All right. If you all could be a villain from any movie, who would you be? I got to go with Jesse on this one, what villain?

WATTERS: I would be Hans Gruber.

(LAUGHTER)

GUTFELD: That's a good choice.

WATTERS: He was falling in slow motion.

GUTFELD: That is a good choice. That is a good choice. What about you, Juan?

WATTERS: From "Die Hard."

GUTFELD: "Die Hard."

WILLIAMS: No, no, no, I know that. I was just trying to remember the drama of him.

GUTFELD: I read it.

WILLIAMS: I don't know.

GUTFELD: Juan?

WILLIAMS: I think that the most famous villain obviously is in "Star Wars," Darth Vader, right?

GUTFELD: Oh.

WILLIAMS: But I've never -- the whole thing about Darth Vader as the dad, looks dad and all that...

GUTFELD: When you (inaudible) way.

WILLIAMS: Oh, sorry. Yeah, in case you haven't seen it, right?

WATTERS: Yes.

WILLIAMS: What about -- who was the villain...

GUTFELD: Can you tell me what happened to "Old Yeller?"

WILLIAMS: Who was the villain in the "Godfather?"

GUTFELD: Who was the villain in the -- well, Corleone was the "Godfather."

WILLIAMS: But he's a good guy.

GUTFELD: He was the anti-hero.

(LAUGHTER)

GUTFELD: How about you, Lisa? Any villain that -- I could see you as a villain.

BOOTHE: Oh, thank you.

(LAUGHTER)

BOOTHE: Greg Gutfeld, "The Five."

WATTERS: "The Five."

BOOTHE: Yeah. I don't know. Probably some sort of action movie (inaudible) fun to film.

WILLIAMS: No, no, but...

BOOTHE: Then you get a...

WILLIAMS: Why don't you be Cruella de Ville?

BOOTHE: Shall I dogs. Stick around dogs.

PERINO: She didn't like dogs.

BOOTHE: She didn't like dogs. See, that is why this is really hard.

GUTFELD: Yeah, what about...

PERINO: I can remember her name. I want to be the boss in "The Devil Wears Prada."

GUTFELD: Oh, yeah.

BOOTHE: That is a great one.

WATTERS: Stretch (ph) for you.

(LAUGHTER)

GUTFELD: Yeah.

BOOTHE: And Jesse will not be here after the break.

(LAUGHTER)

PERINO: I can't wait to see what your mom emails you about that.

WATTERS: "The Five" becomes "The Four."

(LAUGHTER)

GUTFELD: I don't know. I would either want to pick -- I would pick "Jaws." I would like to be the shark that eats everybody.

WATTERS: Of course, you want to be an animal.

GUTFELD: It would be great to be a shark, but I wouldn't get blown up.

PERINO: But you didn't want to go in the toilet.

GUTFELD: I didn't want -- the ocean is a giant toilet but not if you're shark. Then you're the king of the toilet.

(LAUGHTER)

GUTFELD: You know what.

BOOTHE: Just how how you want to live your life.

WATTERS: Great analysis.

GUTFELD: Don't swim where you eat, I always say. All right. From Kim W. What in your opinion is the most pivotal point in American history that defines our country's values? I think we all probably know which one that is.

WATTERS: November 8, 2016.

WILLIAMS: Oh, no, I was...

WATTERS: Sorry, Juan.

WILLIAMS: Listen. Obviously, it's the civil war.

GUTFELD: I was going to go more recent, but, yeah, civil war.

PERINO: I'm going with declaration of independence.

BOOTHE: That's what mine was.

GUTFELD: I was going to say 9/11. Because to me, 9/11 has -- it was the biggest day in my history of my life, but I guess...

WATTERS: I agree with that.

WILLIAMS: They want a current?

GUTFELD: No, no, it could be any. It could be but pivotal point. You can say revolution...

BOOTHE: When Trump tweet out (inaudible).

(LAUGHTER)

GUTFELD: There you go. What about Dana?

PERINO: Declaration of independence.

GUTFELD: Declaration of independence. Yeah, that was okay.

PERINO: Especially because it set out for the first time that human beings are granted the gift of freedom and liberty through God, not through government.

WILLIAMS: (inaudible) the American people much later.

BOOTHE: Well, yes, true.

GUTFELD: All right. I think we solved a lot of problems here, or maybe we created problems, more like alcohol. We solved them and we caused them. "One More Thing" is up next.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

PERINO: It's time now for "One More Thing." Jesse kicks this off.

WATTERS: Everybody loves this video. The annual running of the bulls in Pamplona, Spain here. Only three injuries this year. We have (inaudible) went to the hospital. We had two Americans who were hurt. One was gored in the abdomen, the other was gored in the family (inaudible). It's a 10- football field course. They do it at about three minutes on these cobblestone streets. It's absolutely brutal. I've never done it. I recommend Mayor de Blasio go there next time.

PERINO: Why don't you go do a Watters' World there?

WATTERS: Are you trying to get me hurt, Dana?

PERINO: No.

(CROSSTALK)

WATTERS: The fact is you're making fun of me, aren't you?

PERINO: Juan, you're next.

WILLIAMS: Well, I hope you all remember Malala Yousafzai, I hope I said that right, the Pakistani girl who survived a shot in the head by the Taliban in 2012, because she advocated for girls getting an education in Pakistan. She was only 15 years old at the time. Since then, she's become an icon for the ongoing struggle for quality education and women's rights.

Well, today, you know what, she finished high school. She also joined Twitter for the first time saying, hi, Twitter. And then she tweeted again saying, today is my last day of school, my first day on Twitter. You can follow her at Malala. Congratulations.

PERINO: I followed her. All right. So during the show on Saturday night in Louisiana, Garth Brooks spotted a sign in a crowd that read, Elvis was my last concert. Okay. This is Laura. She is 89 years old. Garth Brooks spotted her in the crowd, went after her, and let her choose her favorite song and this is what happened.

(START VIDEO CLIP)

(MUSIC PLAYING)

PERINO: Laura loved it so much, but Garth Brooks was really worried about (inaudible) at the end (inaudible).

(LAUGHTER)

PERINO: Garth Brooks is amazing. That's a nice moment.

WATTERS: Right.

PERINO: Greg, you're next.

GUTFELD: Tomorrow night, "Greg Gutfeld Show" at 10:00. It's great. We got Gillian Turner. We got (inaudible), probably one of funniest men in America. (inaudible). We talk about everything. Also, I forgot to plug my podcast which is foxnewspodcast.com. I got 30- minute interview with Ted Nugent about everything that's been going on, rhetoric and stuff. It's pretty good.

And tomorrow, we are doing a story on Democrats, coming out with bumper stickers that explain their party to people. And they are having a hard time coming up with it. So I came up with a few of them and we are going to be showing these on the show. The first one is, Democratic Party, you can see. America's best whiner. This is Democratic Party, hey, where are you going? Come back. Hear me out.

(LAUGHTER)

PERINO: That's a great one.

GUTFELD: Thank you. don't be sarcastic. Democratic Party, yes, we still suck, but what are you going to do? Yes. This is good. Democrats, we stopped thinking about tomorrow.

PERINO: I think it came out 100 years from now, 500 years from now.

GUTFELD: Thanks for helping me out there. Take your day job. Whatever that job might be.

PERINO: All right.

WATTERS: I also forgot to plug my show, "Watters' World." Can we talk about that for a minute?

(LAUGHTER)

WATTERS: That's a big plug.

BOOTHE: Victor Peoro cannot afford to take his 2-year-old daughter, Autumn, to Disney World. Does not mean that he's not going to give her the full treatment. As you can see there, he held his 2-year-old daughter up to give her the idea that she was in Disney World.

When the roller coaster reached the summit, you can see her gripping to the sides like she was 150-feet high. This was posted to "You Tube" and under the title, poor people roller coaster. It has received over 135,590 views. That's a dad of the year award.

PERINO: All right. Set your DVR, never miss an episode of "The Five." Make sure you watch Jesse's show and Greg's show this weekend. Have a great weekend everyone. "Hannity" is up next.
