Rubio jumps into 2016 race, says he's 'uniquely qualified'

This is a rush transcript from "The Five," April 13, 2015. This copy may not be in its final form and may be updated.

KIMBERLY GUILFOYLE, CO-HOST: This is a Fox News Alert. Hello, everyone. I'm Kimberly Guilfoyle. Marco Rubio is just moments away from joining the 2016 presidential race. He's going to kick off his campaign shortly in his home state of Florida at the Miami Freedom Tower. Rubio broke the news of today's announcement right here on "The Five" two weeks ago. Earlier, reporters tried to get a preview of tonight's rollout. The senator wouldn't say much.


MARCO RUBIO, FLORIDA SENATOR: Running late. I look forward to seeing you guys tonight.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Senator, why are you qualified?


RUBIO: Hope you guys will be here tonight. It will be great.


GUILFOYLE: Yes. We have excerpts from the big speech. Here is one. "Our country has always been about the future. We can't do that by going back to the leaders and ideas of the past. We must change the decisions we are making by changing the people who are making them." And here's another. "In many countries, the highest office in the land is reserved for the rich and powerful, but I live in an exceptional country where even the son of a bartender and a maid can have the same dream and the same future as those who come from power and privilege." So a lot of excitement for the GOP, hoping that perhaps this is going to be a monumental occasion for the Republicans. In -- some new vigor, excitement, passion, Dana, into the whole race.

DANA PERINO, CO-HOST: Sure. So that we have had -- now we have three official candidates, Ted Cruz was the first. That was -- I think his rollout was pretty good and effective. Rand Paul followed him. Not as effective of a rollout but still able to hold his own and I think righted his ship over the weekend. And then Marco Rubio that -- I think this one probably is one of the more exciting ones for the Republican Party because there's a little bit more unity around him and excitement. I think that his language that you just read off, the messaging and the excerpts from the speech, you can imagine that they are both well-tested and also it seems to me they come from the heart. We had him here on "The Five" where he talked about that he was going to make this announcement to run for president and he is -- the one thing he really has going for him that is a contrast to Hillary Clinton is authenticity. You just see -- what you see is what you get with Marco Rubio and a lot of people like it.

GUILFOYLE: And he is also making the suggestions to not call back from the past with people who have already been running for office.

GREG GUTFELD, CO-HOST: Yes, but he's being a hypocrite.


GUTFELD: He's saying you have to let go of the past, why do you still have that side part? Got to change his hair.


PERINO: You're actually letting him to change his hair style.

GUTFELD: He has got to change his hair. He has to change his hair.

PERINO: OK. That's constructive criticism.

GUTFELD: That is constructive criticism from me because all he has to do is take his hand, go like that and bring it forward and then.

PERINO: But what if he doesn't have a lot of extra hair up there?

GUTFELD: He's got to live with that. We all have to live with aging. You don't want to keep doing the side part. Having said that, I admire him because I think as the son of immigrants.

GUILFOYLE: OK. Super head (ph).

GUTFELD: How dare you? As the son of immigrant parents, he has a great story. He understands the exceptionalism of coming -- of America, why you would want to come here, why it's important to do things legally. Dad bartender, mom housekeeper, all this stuff creates a pro-capitalist point of view. Can I just bring up Hillary in order to convey what I think Rubio's strategy should be? After eight years of President Obama, basically Hillary is like John McCain who came after eight years of Bush. He is tethered to the past. That's why the Republican Party needs somebody fresh who can articulate the Republican ideals in an innovative, positive way. It can't just be about stopping Hillary. It's about what are you, what can you offer. So in a way, if Rubio becomes Whole Foods, then Hillary becomes Woolworth's, which is kind of what happened to John McCain when compared to Obama.

JULIE ROGINSKY, CO-HOST: But before she gets to Hillary -- he gets to Hillary, he has to go through -- I think that was kind of a jibe at Jeb Bush, the whole going back to the leaders of the sins of the past. It was a twofer. That's a twofer. Exactly right. That wasn't just Hillary. That was, by the way, the guy he has to get through and get to the nomination which is Jeb Bush.


ROGINSKY: The same guy that he's competing with for Florida, his mentor, allegedly, the guy that a lot of people in Bushland think he stabbed in the back. So I think, you know, before he even starts talking about Hillary, I get that she's an important person to beat up on if you're a Republican, but it's the nomination you have to get and he's got to get it.


GUILFOYLE: Bolling, yes. How does he stand on his own merits?

ERIC BOLLING, CO-HOST: He's great. Look. He's doing this announcement at the Florida Freedom Tower which is kind of like the Ellis Island for Cubans coming over. He gets the Hispanic vote. He's a fantastic speaker. Very, very important, though, this Norman Braman guy, the big donor, boy, that's lend him a lot of credibility. I don't know if you have heard Norman speak but he just absolutely adores Marco Rubio. Norman comes from Florida. He had the choice between Jeb Bush and Marco and he explains why Marco Rubio is the future of the party whereas Jeb may be the past of the party. Having a $10 million donor with a big name behind you, I know it's money, it may not what you want to hear, but it gives him -- if you are looking at Jeb or Marco, gives Rubio the edge there. Look. He's done everything right so far. He was very prominent on -- in CNN, on Fox, et cetera, for a long time. He pulled himself back over the last year and a half. We haven't seen a lot from him. Some of the other candidates have been out in front and staying in the media. It kind of gives itself a little bit of anticipation because you haven't seen a lot of him. Saw him here a couple weeks ago but that was really it. There wasn't a lot of Rubio in what you.

GUILFOYLE: Yes. No, no, I think you're right.

BOLLING: OK. All right. Good. I thought you were questioning the validity of the comment. Look. I think he's exciting.

GUILFOYLE: OK. Perfect. All right. Now, we're going to have more to come on Rubio's announcement ahead, but we want to turn to the other big 2016 news, Hillary Clinton's campaign rollout.


UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: After five years of raising my children, I am now going back to work.

UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I'm getting married this summer to someone I really care about.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I'm getting ready to retire soon.

UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I'm getting ready to do something too.

HILLARY CLINTON, FORMER FIRST LADY: I'm running for president. Americans have fought their way back from tough economic times, but the deck is still stacked in favor of those at the top. Every day Americans need a champion and I want to be that champion.


GUILFOYLE: She wants to be the champion for everyday Americans but does she have anything in common with them? Right now, Clinton's being driven across the country to Iowa in a van nicknamed Scooby. She's not at the wheel because remember she hasn't driven a car in nearly 20 years. She plans to visit New Hampshire and other states in the coming days as well. Could you imagine if she took this on as sort of like a national lampoon thing, behind the wheel, strap somebody to the roof of the car?

PERINO: But not a dog.

GUILFOYLE: Yes. But not a dog. And drove across America? Now, that would be a good idea. Anybody likes it?

GUTFELD: Well, her taking a van across the country is something that Bill Clinton would have loved to have done, a van, a man, a mattress, Panama. But if you look at that -- if you look at that commercial that she released, she was barely in it at all. The message seemed to be that you will like me more if you see less of me. They are treating her like the shark in Jaws where the impact matters the less you see. It's like she benefits from her absence which says a lot that she didn't do it live. It was so highly produced. I thought it was fake.

ROGINSKY: No. I mean they did it because the knock on her has been it's all about me, it's my turn, me, me, me.


ROGINSKY: In this one, it's to convey that it's not about me. It's about -- look, it kicked off every special interest group in the Democratic Party, right?

GUTFELD: It kicked off with mothers first and foremost repeatedly, the LGBT community, women, seniors, mothers again. So it was -- and then she comes in and says wait, it's not really about what I want. I want to join you. I want to fight for you, you being all the people you saw in that commercial. That's what that is all about.

PERINO: And it's also -- I think the labeling -- I thought it was a good ad.

ROGINSKY: I do too.

PERINO: However, I think that this thing of everyday Americans, that always bother me when politicians say ordinary Americans or everyday Americans because Hillary Clinton has figured out how not to be an ordinary or everyday American. And yet she wants to say I'm just like you.

ROGINSKY: But she's not.

PERINO: That's not going to work for very long unless there -- unless it's going to be highly produced all the way through to November 2016, which would be quite a remarkable feat and unfortunate because you wouldn't really get any answers. Part of my feeling is that she's just famous for being famous and Americans kind of like people who are famous for that.

GUILFOYLE: I guess. What is she going to offer the country that's new and it's fresh and different if people are dissatisfying the solution with Obama, Eric?

BOLLING: I don't know. They may get the same, but they may not mind getting the same. The announcement had something -- what did they say, 3 million views within the first hour that she unrolled it, 56,000 re-tweets on Twitter? But the mainstream -- it's kind of funny. The mainstream media called it an amazing rollout. They called it stellar. And I'm quoting. Chuck Todd gave her an A for the video. Now, if you watch the video, the original script on the video said -- it said, "Hillary has fought children and families," instead of saying has fought for children and families. They had to pull it down and fix it. And then it linked to another video which was a broken link under -- on YouTube. It was broken. So to be given an A and calling it amazing rollout, mind you, this was taped. They had all the time in the world to get this done, to fact-check it, to script edit it, to make sure the links are fixed and they didn't.


PERINO: That's why I'm wondering if the Obama care website architects were in charge of it. I can't explain (ph) how the reporters -- I felt bad for the reporters. You saw them out there today too with Marco Rubio. They have been standing there all day. Yesterday is the most beautiful day, the only beautiful day of the year in New York, and.

BOLLING: Three hours.

PERINO: Her communication staff is making fun of the reporters who are standing out there and there is a little bit of mini revolt. It's fun to watch. But none of that is going to matter, right? These are -- those are like the fun little dramatic things of a campaign if you are following it day to day but overall I thought the ad was good. The substance is going to have to come later.

BOLLING: Can I throw out -- I thought it was very, very safe. Now, I guess if you're running solo, you don't have anyone against you and you're winning, I guess that's the way you do it, but she took no chances.

GUILFOYLE: So why should she take chances?

BOLLING: I don't -- like I said. I guess that's.


GUILFOYLE: Maybe she didn't, but she did take my advice about the symbol sign. Did you notice that? (Inaudible) symbol like print and to get that little H with -- you see on the back of the screen here.

PERINO: That means we can call her Hillary.

GUILFOYLE: It's so bizarre. I don't even know.

BOLLING: Did you notice it's red and arrow pointing to the right?

GUILFOYLE: It's crazy.

PERINO: She had you in mind.

GUILFOYLE: Speaking of which, red and arrow to the right, let's hear what the GOP contenders had to say about this.


TED CRUZ, TEXAS SENATOR: Hillary Clinton represents the failed policies of the past. Does America want a third Obama term?

JEB BUSH, EX-FLORIDA SENATOR: That's why it's critical. We change the direction our country is heading. We must do better than the Obama/Clinton foreign policy that has damaged relationships with our allies and emboldened our enemies.

CARLY FIORINA, FORMER CEO OF HEWLETT-PACKARD: She doesn't have a track record of leadership or trustworthiness. She is not the woman for the White House.


GUILFOYLE: All right. Well, those are pretty compelling points. And Jeb Bush looking good -- looking good in that video. So did you guys like any of these comments? Did they hit the right tone? Let's kick it around.

GUTFELD: I would rather focus on what Fareed Zakaria said yesterday. He was at the gym and he said -- he nailed it when he said his 12-year-old daughter was excited over the prospect of a woman president. Forget all the major issues out there. The 12-year-old's rationale for electing Hillary is exactly the same as the media's and exactly the same as Hillary's. It's shallow and naive and it might work. My point here is that this gender angle is like a baseball pitcher with one great pitch that no one else has. She's like the Phil Niekro and that's her knuckleball is the fact she's a woman and she's going to use it over and over and over again. The Republicans have to learn to be able to hit that or find their own unique pitcher, their own guy that has a pitch, a first like Hillary and like Barack Obama, something that's a first they can't hit back.

GUILFOYLE: Well then, any good batter is going to adjust to the same pitch coming across the plate every time. So change it up, lady.

PERINO: I can understand the desire from the other candidates to try to weigh in yesterday immediately with videos. I would say that if you're going to take something like Hillary Clinton's highly produced, multi million dollar ad agency type of ad and then do kind of a selfie video from your hotel room, it's going to look not as good.

GUILFOYLE: It's a hostage (ph) video.

PERINO: So there is not a rush. You can wait and do something better. Now, the candidates that they are today will not be the candidates they are in three, six months from now, nine months from now. All of these campaigns are going to improve and sharpen, have better resources.

BOLLING: So -- and they could have done it in advance. I mean it wasn't like Hillary said anything that was earth-shattering. They could have done something.


PERINO: They could have some buzz (ph).


PERINO: Some music, something.

BOLLING: So something interesting, a little better than the drapes in the background and the poor lighting.

GUTFELD: It sure (ph) is not a van -- another van.

BOLLING: Let me throw out something. Bill Maher over the weekend offered $1 million to Elizabeth Warren if she jumps in. If you listen to Elizabeth Warren, you hear issues. You hear policy. You hear the difference between Hillary who is talking just this real 4,000 foot, you know, I want better things for America. This is -- and then you listen to Elizabeth Warren, she outlines some areas. It would be very interesting to see how those two stack up against each other. I would like to see those two duke it out a little.

GUILFOYLE: Yes. I don't know.


BOLLING: Hillary is at the top.

GUILFOYLE: Clintons are never going to let that happen.

BOLLING: They still have the chops to stand up to Elizabeth Warren? She might not.

ROGINSKY: Well, but if you look at -- I mean -- John Podesta, her chairman, put out a tweet before she did, talking about specific issues, economic opportunity, climate change, a few others. You are never going to expect somebody to stand up and suddenly talk about substance in their announcement. You're not going to see Marco Rubio won't do that either.


BOLLING: I would like to see the two of them on the debate stage.

ROGINSKY: Well, it will never happen.

GUILFOYLE: Well, we'll see. And maybe America needs to think about this. Do they want another four or eight years of this kind of Clinton/Obama world? Let's listen to Brit Hume.


BRIT HUME, FOX NEWS SENIOR POLITICAL ANALYST: She has tremendous baggage. I mean do America -- American people really want another four or eight years with the Clintons and their weird marriage? Do they really want more of the kind of behavior that, you know, the deceptive behavior we saw with regard to the e-mails and all the rest of it which is so redolent of Clinton administrations and Clinton experiences past. And then there's the fact that as the public is hungry for someone new, she's not somebody new. She's old. She's not the news.


GUILFOYLE: All right. Julie?

ROGINSKY: Well, he's not wrong about that. I mean to some extent people are fatigued thinking about the Clinton marriage and all the scandal. I mean we have been through this before and I think a lot of Democrats have that reluctance back in 2008 which is why Barack Obama just partially became president -- became the nominee. I will say blaming her for weird things in the Clinton marriage -- I guess Monica Lewinsky is what Brit is alluding to. It's a little heartening (ph) the way for that. It's a little complicated. But I do think this point is well taken. She's got to explain to people why we need 25 more years of what we've had for the last 25 years.

GUILFOYLE: You don't want to comment on this, Eric?

BOLLING: I'm good.


GUILFOYLE: Right. Who can say it better? Dana?

PERINO: I think that some of the drama about the Clintons will affect some people, right? However, I do think there's just a small number of people that are going to have to fight over. There are people that are never going to vote for her and people who will definitely vote for her and then there's a small little window of people who are like I don't know if I'm even going to bother to vote and if I did, who would I pick. I don't know if the drama surrounding their world would affect that small portion of the people. It depends on how effective the messaging is from the Republicans in defining her as well as setting forward a positive agenda. They have the tougher position. Democrats, they have no choice but to be happy or to pretend to be with their choice, because they didn't get one.

GUILFOYLE: Yeah. There you go.

GUTFELD: I'm okay with the entertainment that will be provided by that marriage. However, she -- I do find it a bit rich for her to proclaim herself a feminist by standing by her cad. I mean, you know, shouldn't she have walked away, Julie?

ROGINSKY: I don't really care.

GUTFELD: And say, "I don't need this. I can be my own woman?" She would have been president sooner. You know that.

ROGINSKY: No. I don't think that's fair. It's not for any of us to talk about what goes on in anybody's marriage.


GUTFELD: I agree. I agree. But I am anyway. I am a hypocrite. That's what TV is for, to hold one belief privately and say something opposite.

GUILFOYLE: Or even within 30 seconds of when I challenged it. You flip- flopped like that.


GUTFELD: I agree. No, I flipflop.

GUILFOYLE: I love it.

GUTFELD: No. I disagree.

GUILFOYLE: But he's an adorable little flip-flopper, isn't he? I will put him on my dashboard. All right.


GUTFELD: What does that mean?

GUILFOYLE: More to come ahead on both Hillary Clinton and Marco Rubio's entrances to the 2016 race. "The Five" return in just a moment.


PERINO: Back now to our coverage of Hillary Clinton's 2016 campaign kickoff. I want to play this sound bite for you from Senator Dianne Feinstein because I want to see if we can figure out -- if you can figure out who she is talking about. Listen.


SEN. DIANE FEINSTEIN (D), CALIFORNIA: The important thing is that what her experience has given her, you know, we have men who come here for one or two years, get a few puff pieces and they go out and they run for president.


PERINO: OK. So she could be talking about Senator Ted Cruz, Senator Rand Paul or even Senator Marco Rubio, or Kimberly, she could be talking about Senator, now President, Obama.

GUILFOYLE: Can I tell you that was my first? I was like, isn't he talking.

GUTFELD: That was your first? Wow.

GUILFOYLE: . talking about President Obama. It's kind of interesting.

BOLLING: Young guy in Chicago?

GUILFOYLE: All right. Here we go. Here we go.

BOLLING: First lady there (ph).

GUILFOYLE: Hey, I've never (inaudible).


PERINO: Only on "The Five".

GUILFOYLE: OK. That's all I got to say. Plausible deniability. She is very strong on national security and on foreign policy and her position on the intelligence committee. So I think she has some probably very specific viewpoints about the commander in chief.

PERINO: Yes. I wanted to ask you, Julie, about Hillary Clinton's strategy. So listening to her, she tried in 2008, I guess comparisons to 2008 don't really matter because she doesn't have a competitor. Will she be more warmly welcomed as she goes to Iowa and New Hampshire in these first two weeks?

ROGINSKY: You know, I think a lot of Democrats have the -- I saw a poll recently and it was pretty jarring. That vast majority of Democrats want her to have a primary, a vast majority including me. And so I think she's got to get past that to some extent. People are welcoming her. You nailed it. Democrats understand she's going to be the nominee whether they like it or not. But she does have to get across to the Democratic Party before she even tries to get independents or Republicans to come her way that she doesn't feel like she's owed this, that she doesn't feel she's entitled to this, that she actually is going to ask for their vote because nobody wants to be taken for granted. And I think and I hope that this is what her whole listening tour is about, that she explains to people in Iowa and New Hampshire and other places that she's here because she respects their vote and wants their vote, not because she's going to be anointed and be the coronated queen.

PERINO: There is a -- there is an effective spokesperson that does attack.

ROGINSKY: Why are you laughing?

PERINO: . in front of Republican side. It's Carly Fiorina who visited South Carolina today. Governor Nicki Haley tweeting earlier today she's a formidable possibility and don't count her out. Here she is talking about the ridiculous war on women.


FIORINA: The war on women is ridiculous. First, it's insulting to woman by assuming that all we care about is what the Democrats love to call women's issues. And of course, every issue is a woman's issue. We care about the economy. We care about jobs. We care about national security, health care, immigration, education. So let's just start with that. But secondly, we don't always push back. You know, Hillary Clinton is going to talk a lot about equal pay for equal work. And the facts are she doesn't pay her own staff nor does the president pay his own staff according to the principles that they think everyone else should run by.


PERINO: You think that's effective, Greg?

GUTFELD: I -- know, I saw Carol Costello on CNN this morning asking Ana Navarro, is the White House ready for a woman, a mother, a grandmother? That's going to be the strategy here is that if you don't vote for her, you are against women, mothers and grandmothers. The strategy for Hillary is to soften up, to make her more likeable, which I disagree with. I think she should remain cold, aloof and mean because that's the kind of president I would like. But right now, what she's doing is.

GUILFOYLE: Why don't you run?

GUTFELD: Right now this is so heavily manufactured. Know what she is? She reminds me of baked Lay's. She's the baked Lay's candidate. Remember they kept telling you baked Lay's was a delicious snack and it turned out it was stiff, flavorless and it gave you runs?


GUTFELD: That's the kind of candidate. She should just reject the softening up and become hard, cold and mean.

PERINO: I agree.

BOLLING: It's Olestra.



GUILFOYLE: No. It gives you the worst stomachache, right?

BOLLING: Can I jump in very quick? I know they are wrapping us. But how we -- how are -- how are we going to handle her? How am I specifically going to handle going from -- I must be a racist if I disagree with Obama. And now, I must not be a feminist if I disagree with her (ph).

GUTFELD: Exactly.


PERINO: You're going to get exhausted or misogynist or.


BOLLING: I have to do this. Can I do this? And I don't do this -- I didn't tell the producers because they don't let me do this stuff anymore. You do a chart on Hillary, trustworthy has to be in the middle if you want her as your president, right? Look at the scandals. Travelgate, e-mail-gate, Benghazi.

GUTFELD: Whitewater.

BOLLING: Cattle futures and this one. We are broke leaving the White House -- $100 million a year, they left the White House and she had the gall, the guts to say we were broke leaving the White House? How can you trust that? She will never earn the public's trust, ever.

ROGINSKY: The public has forgotten about Whitewater, cattle futures and Travelgate because I think that was before I went to college, but.

PERINO: You know what the democrats will say? Who cares? She's going to win.

GUILFOYLE: They'll say what's (inaudible).


PERINO: She's going to win the democratic nomination. So it doesn't matter to them.

GUTFELD: It's funny when they call them cattle futures. They're talking about the future.

PERINO: Cattle demise.

GUTFELD: Yes. I don't get it. Oh, the farm girl laughs.

PERINO: Yes, I do. I laugh at that a lot. All right. Ahead, golf is celebrating its new hero. Jordan, help me out, Spieth.

GUTFELD: Spieth.

PERINO: OK. The 21-year-old big Masters victory and more coming up fast in the next seven - Fastest seven.


BOLLING:  Welcome back.  Time for...



GRAPHIC: The Fastest 7


BOLLING:  ... "The Fastest Seven Minutes on Television."  Three fetching stories, seven fleeting minutes, one frolicsome host.


BOLLING:  First up, "Saturday Night Live" poked some fun at the inevitability of Hillary 2016 and did so with some spot-on characterizations.  They even brought back Darrell Hammond, who crushes it with his almost perfect first dude, Bill.



KATE MCKINNON, CAST MEMBER, NBC'S "SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE":  Citizens, you will elect me.  I will be your leader.

I am running because I want to be a voice for women everywhere.

DARRELL HAMMOND, FORMER CAST MEMBER, NBC'S "SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE":  Did someone say women everywhere?  Hillary would make a great president, and I would make an even greater first dude.  Hillary, isn't it crazy that phones can take videos now?  I mean, if they could have done that in the '90s, I'd be in jail.


BOLLING:  Greg, "citizens."  Go ahead.

GUTFELD:  Again, why you would vote for them, within three years Bill will do something or someone.  While she's fighting for women, he'll be sleeping with them.  It's just going to be so appealing.

BOLLING:  We're going to have fun, though.

GUTFELD:  Yes, yes, we will -- we'll have a segment every day.

BOLLING:  We will have a lot of fun.

GUILFOYLE:  It's the gift that keeps on giving for your monologue.


GUILFOYLE:  Like, "What should I do today?  Hillary and Bill."

PERINO:  Like Anthony Weiner.


BOLLING:  First dude.

GUILFOYLE:  Remember that?  Yes, I don't know.  Listen, if you're into that kind of thing, you can get two for the price of one.  Think about it.

BOLLING:  Wait, wait.

GUILFOYLE:  He knows a thing or two about the economy.

BOLLING:  OK.  Oh, two -- I got you.  I see.

GUILFOYLE:  So let's see.  Some people, two Clintons, yes.  For the price of one.

BOLLING:  If you're into that.  Whatever.  Anyway, go ahead, sorry.

GUILFOYLE:  Yes, no, that's what I'm saying.  Not where you were going.

BOLLING:  Julie, the characterization was "Citizens, you will elect me," is kind of a joke, is a parody.  But kind of close.

ROGINSKY:  I thought it was hilarious.  I mean, listen, Bill Clinton and Darrell Hammond was an awesome Bill Clinton back in the '90s.  Phil Hartman was the best Bill Clinton out there, but unfortunately, he's no longer with us.  But I would love four more years of that, just for "Saturday Night Live."  Just for four more years of Bill Clinton impressions.  Four to eight.

PERINO:  I just think Darrell Hammond -- Darrell is going to have to go on one of those vegan diets.  Because Clinton is so thin now.

GUILFOYLE:  He's so thing now, I know.

GUTFELD:  They should get Daryl Hannah to play him.

PERINO:  That's actually what I think I was going to say.

GUTFELD:  Oh, I'm sorry.

PERINO:  But then I got confused with Hannah and Hammond.

GUTFELD:  All right.

BOLLING:  How about this?  Next up, want to see something uplifting?  A young black man pulled over by a white cop in South Carolina and said the officer was just doing his job.


WILL STACK, ARMY NATIONAL GUARD:  An officer pulls up behind me, throws on his lights.  After understanding that he was there for me, I pulled off to the side.  He gave me a warning, and I was about my way.  I am an African- American male.  This gentleman was Caucasian.  There were no problems.

People need to understand that not all officers are crooked.  Not all officers are racist bad people.


BOLLING:  Now, that video has been seen by more than two million online.   Will Stack, an Army National Guardsman, joined "FOX and Friends" this morning.


STACK:  You're not automatically a bad person because of the color of the skin or because of the profession that you do.  I think we should, as people, judge a person based off of the content of their character, rather than the color of their skin or what they do for a living.


BOLLING:  That's great commentary.

PERINO:  So he had two million hits.  You said earlier that the Hillary Clinton ad announcing, it had three million hits.  So this young man, who decided to take it upon himself to make a video, to make a -- to spread a point actually was as -- almost as effective as Hillary Clinton in doing that.

GUILFOYLE:  And I think more so in terms of the message and what he had to say and being courageous to come out there and put that forth.  It's not necessarily popular or the P.C. thing to say, especially in light of recent shootings in North Carolina [SIC], as well.

But you know how much more, what he did for society, positive for this country, than someone like Al Sharpton, who's a race baiter?  That's what I'd love to see, the juxtaposition from a positive message like this man, encouraging you to use your mind, your intellect, make decisions for yourself and don't be a puppet or a pawn from the people that are fear and hate mongers.

BOLLING:  Good message.

GUTFELD:  The challenge here, though, with video is that videos tend to show bad things.  That's the point.  Very few people will film positive things, because positive things are boring.  It's more -- you get more hits generally with infractions, this being the exception.

Like, people on World Hip-Hop, WorldstarHipHop, that website, they don't upload videos of people having nice conversations.  They upload two women pulling each other's hair on the floor of a late-night McDonald's.

ROGINSKY:  What is this website you go to?

GUTFELD:  WorldstarHipHop.  That's where you find everything, Julie.  Don't pretend you don't know.

ROGINSKY:  You know, late at night, have you seen the picture of them getting my weave, like yanking it?  Yes, great.  A joke.

GUILFOYLE:  You go, girl.

ROGINSKY:  Yes.  No, look, I think -- I think it's a great message, and I would be hard-pressed to find anybody out there, even al Sharpton, who thinks that all cops are racist or who thinks, you know.  But I think it is nice that somebody pointed it out.  Let's not go crazy, though.  Nobody is out there saying all cops are racist, all white people are...


ROGINSKY:  What?  Maybe -- maybe I don't go -- maybe I don't go to Greg's website.

GUTFELD:  Every single host on MSNBC.

BOLLING:  You just look at -- exactly.  Watch Sharpton's show for an hour.   You'll see it.  Eventually, someone...

PERINO:  She's smart.  She doesn't watch it.

ROGINSKY:  I don't watch that stuff.  Maybe I'm -- yes.

BOLLING:  Did you catch the Masters over the weekend?  A young golfer named Jordan Spieth owned Augusta.  Twenty-one-year-old became the second youngest golfer to wear the green jacket.  Spieth led the field from the start to the very last hole, never relinquishing the lead.  The last time that happened, 1979, 15 years before Spieth was born.


UNIDENTIFIED MALE:  One of the epic performances in the annals of the sport.

JORDAN SPIETH, WON MASTERS TOURNAMENT:  This was arguably the greatest day of my life, and to join the club that is the green jackets and to join Masters history and put my name on that trophy and to have this jacket forever is something that I can't fathom right now.


BOLLING:  K.G., amazing.  You were watching?

GUILFOYLE:  Yes, I watched it start to finish.  I loved it.  I thought it was fantastic.  And watched yesterday, too.  And he was really impressive.   His composure, the way he handles himself, his focus and attention, his setup, you know, when he's, like, putting is fantastic.  And so I would have just liked if he made it on the shot that preceded that.  But anyway, it was great.

BOLLING:  And leaving him the championship record; he tied it with Tiger Woods by missing that...

GUILFOYLE:  Very impressive.  Great golfer.

BOLLING:  Jesuit high school.

GUTFELD:  Oh, really?  I'm glad my tips paid off.

You know, know when you watch -- when I watch a golfer I never really see an athlete.  I always feel like I'm watching a businessman, because the golfer is generally -- professional golfers, the sole proprietor of a company.  He's got to pay bills.  He's got to hire staff.  He has to map out a tour so that he can actually make some money to pay up these people.   That's why you never find a left-wing professional golfer.  Because the principles that are needed for economic sense and survival are almost always conservative.  That's why, like, when you meet a professional golfer, they are as conservative as you can get.

GUILFOYLE:  They've come by here.

BOLLING:  Twenty-one years old, I think he's earned now $4.9 million this year so far.  Wow, what composure.

PERINO:  So I love a great success story.  And I think some of these ones in sports is where you -- actually in America, some of our best stories are coming out of the sports world.

Some are bad.  Also, there has been some terrible things recently.  Don't tweet me about that.  But I like these good American success stories.

I'm going to a great American sporting event next Sunday at NASCAR.  And I was just wondering, do they give out green jackets?

BOLLING:  No.  They give out a big old trophy.  Big old trophy.

GUILFOYLE:  No, that's a Masters thing.

BOLLING:  Can I throw another quick...

GUILFOYLE:  And you know, it was his dream to win the Masters.  He said when he was 14 years of age, that was the one thing he wanted to accomplish in life, and he has done it.

ROGINSKY:  Seven years later, is that amazing?  Fourteen to 21.


BOLLING:  Very quickly, Julie, his caddy was a teacher.  He left teaching, 15 year teacher, left teaching.  He's going to earn 375 grand so far this year.

ROGINSKY:  That's nice.  Better than teaching.

BOLLING:  Better than teaching.  We'll leave it right there.

Still ahead on ""The Five"," Marco Rubio -- yes, you're going to hear that.

ROGINSKY:  I'm sorry.  More money than teaching is what I meant.  Nothing is more noble than being a teacher.

BOLLING:  Marco Rubio about to officially enter the 2016 presidential race.   Can he beat out his fellow Republicans for the nomination?  What should his strategy be?  Coming up.


GUTFELD:  Thank you.  At the showing of "American Sniper" at Eastern Michigan University, which is in eastern Michigan, Kimberly, 40 students protested the film, some hopping onstage and then refusing to leave.  What true heroes they are, trying to stop a film.  I guess that beats protesting abuse of women in Muslim countries.

Now I don't know if they actually saw the flick, but if they did, they would have seen that "American Sniper" is not a valentine to America but actually a pretty grim take on war.  But protesters don't have to see what they protest, because it's not ever about learning or facing competing ideas.  It's about silencing others so their adolescent views go unchallenged.

These cowards have turned campuses into bubble-wrapped ball pits.  Daycare for crybabies, when one can ignore big-ticket miseries in favor of wimpy protests about movies.

Of course, they'd never protest the lock-step leftism of Michael Moore or Oliver Stone.  The only villains these students ever see is the very country that defends their idiocy.  And please note: the same people who cry for a safe space away from scary movies see no problem violating your space when they block traffic or shout at you at brunch.  Their strategy: saying that words or ideas are no different than physical harm.  It's not a movie; it's an assault.  Where could they have learned that from?


UNIDENTIFIED MALE:  Earlier this month, the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, was attacked and burned, and Ambassador Chris Stevens and three other Americans were killed.  That attack took place amid violent protests that broke out over an Internet movie that ridiculed Islam.

Well, late today, the filmmaker, Nakoula Basseley Nakoula, was arrested in Los Angeles.  Federal prosecutors say that, by uploading the film on the Internet, Nakoula violated the terms of his probation on a previous check fraud conviction.


GUTFELD:  Action once spoke louder than words, but now words are every bit as bad.  I tell these kids to grow up, but they'd probably curl up into a ball and weep.

So Kimberly, these students, in my view, will fail in the real world if movies frighten them.

GUILFOYLE:  Yes.  They can't handle it.  They're just not well-equipped to do anything but pout and cry in the corner like little crybabies.  And you see what happens when a few politically correct wannabes, malcontents get together and try and stifle free speech at a university where you're supposed to open your mind to learning, to be able to take in another viewpoint and not to be so ignorant.

Because you're right, if they had bothered to see the film instead of just automatically protesting it by virtue of its title, they would understand that it is not a celebration of America, of war, or of having to take a life.  It's much more complex by that.  And it shows the atrocities and the difficulties, the challenges of war and what the individuals in it have to face.

GUTFELD:  Hey, Julie, I -- I don't have any research to back this up.   Hasn't stopped me before.  But I doubt that, among those protesters, there were no, like, electrical engineering majors.  You know what I mean?   People that actually have to study.

BOLLING:  Gender Studies?

ROGINSKY:  Meaning they're all liberal arts students, like me?

GUTFELD:  Like me.

ROGINSKY:  Right.  You know, I think your point is so well taken.  Because the First Amendment is something that I feel should be taught first day of college campus.  You go to college to learn about new ideas.

And by the way, if you want to protest something, don't go see the movie.   You protest by not paying for it.  That's a good way to protest something.   But preventing other people from seeing something or expanding your horizons, to me, is insane.  I don't get it.

GUTFELD:  Eric, I want to just show you: this is Bradley Cooper at the MTV Movie Awards, winning an award and doing something nice.


BRADLEY COOPER, ACTOR:  I want to thank you to MTV and the fans.  I Just want to say it's because of you.  you brought awareness to the men and women and their families in the military and what they do for us on a daily basis.  Chris Kyle would have turned 41 four days ago.  Chris, this is for you.


GUTFELD:  That's a good thing.

BOLLING:  Great stuff.  But can I just take a different perspective on this?  I think the system worked.  The university was going to put the movie up, and then they said they weren't because they got backlash.  They have people saying they didn't want to see the movie.

A football team said, "We're going to show the movie.  If you won't show it, we'll show it."  The university said they were going to go ahead and show it, and then they got protests.  And that's kind of the way the system should work, right?  They got -- the movie got out there.  People who didn't like it have the right to protest.

GUTFELD:  Yes, but they were -- they tried to stop it.

GUILFOYLE:  That's the point.

PERINO:  Here's the thing, that I think it actually backfired on them.   Because the people who went to see the movie, because they were interested, probably saw the protesters and now would support "American Sniper" -- seeing the movie and our military even more than before.

GUTFELD:  Good point.

GUILFOYLE:  Happy ending.

GUTFELD:  All right.

Next, Marco Rubio is entering the 2016 race in mere minutes.  He says he's, quote, "uniquely qualified" to be president.  We'll debate that ahead.


ROGINSKY:  You're looking live at Miami, Florida, where Senator Marco Rubio is moments away from formally declaring a 2016 presidential run.  How does Senator Rubio compare to his competitors on the Republican side?  And how would he do in a general election against Hillary Clinton?  Let's go around the table.

He says he's uniquely qualified.  Eric Bolling, why do you think he might be qualified?

BOLLING:  He might be.

ROGINSKY:  Based on what?

BOLLING:  Because like I say, he has -- I think the Republicans, in order to win and sustain any viability going forward, you have to embrace the Latino vote; and he's going to do that.  Now I know Jeb is married to -- is his wife Mexican, I believe?  Is that right?  Wife's a Mexican, so he would also.  But...

PERINO:  There's Ted Cruz.

ROGINSKY:  Yes, Ted Cruz is Latino.  He's Cuban.

BOLLING:  He's Latino, as well.  It just -- I'm loving everything he's representing right now.  And again, Norman Braman, a businessman, sports team owner, with his backing, I like that guy.

ROGINSKY:  But Dana, you know, he flip-flopped on immigration and other issues that are really important to the Republican base.  Do you think that hurts him going forward?

PERINO:  It might.  And I think it will just have to see, how does he come out of that?  I think it will be -- a strength of his will be can he come out either -- either tonight or in the coming days and articulate a vision on immigration?  I do think two major strengths are that he hires very good staff, and he is also very funny.  He's, like, naturally witty and funny, and that comes across.  He doesn't have to hide it.

ROGINSKY:  Greg, he hates the Bee Gees, apparently, I found out today, which to me is a huge strike against him.

GUTFELD:  Well, here's why he's going to be the next president.  It's my "Wheel of Fortune" theory.  The vowel-to-consonant ratio makes him a very difficult puzzle to solve...

GUILFOYLE:  Oh, my God.

GUTFELD:  ... unless you ask for an "R," which coincidentally, or not coincidentally, represents the Republican Party.

ROGINSKY:  All right.

GUILFOYLE:  Thank God, because I was going to wait until 2016 and find out, but it is so good to get that inside scoop.

I love the guy.

PERINO:  Can I solve the puzzle?


ROGINSKY:  You're a little crushing on him, and so am I.  We have a little competition going here.

GUILFOYLE:  I think he's fantastic.  He represents the American dream.  He is warm; he's personable.  His family is fantastic, when they were all here in the green room, and his wife as well.  He's just a very genuine person.   He's very likeable, and he's also well-prepared.  I feel that he's put his time in.  He's preparing on foreign policy and other things, so good things for his candidacy.

ROGINSKY:  I agree.  I think he's the strongest guy the Republicans can put up.  And "One More Thing" is up next.


GUILFOYLE:  Well, it's time now for "One More Thing."  Eric, what do you have that's really special for us?

BOLLING:  OK.  Wait, hold on.  Before we -- I show you the pictures that our friends Jay and Laura sent us from our trip in Mexico last week, I want to tell you a quick story.  Walking down the streets in Paya del Carmen (ph) -- by, the way, Mexican people are great people -- this Mexican guy yells to me -- yells to me, "Hey, gordito blanco," which means chubby white guy.  I speak Spanish, and I know, and I turn.  I was like, "Gordito blanco?  Are you kidding me?" and he got all flustered.  So anyway, here's the picture that I...

GUILFOYLE:  To show your tan.

ROGINSKY:  Oh, my gosh.  Are you kidding me?

BOLLING:  Not gordito.

ROGINSKY:  Oh, my God.

BOLLING:  No mas gordito.

GUILFOYLE:  Oh, my gosh.

ROGINSKY:  This is a really interesting therapy session.

GUILFOYLE:  But that, you're like the stunt double for Hasselhoff, "Baywatch."  Do you have red shorts on?

BOLLING:  Did you really say that?  Did you say that?

GUTFELD:  So the whole story was so you could show yourself without a shirt on?

GUILFOYLE:  You figured that out already?

GUTFELD:  That's amazing.

GUILFOYLE:  That's going to be part of "I Hate These People."

GUTFELD:  No, no.  I've got something.  All right.  I'm ready.


GUTFELD:  I hate these people!


GUTFELD:  I hate -- I had myself, because I still have Yahoo! e-mail.   Yahoo! is like having an old car that you want to get rid of, but you still have stuff in it.  That's the problem with having an old, outdated e-mail system, is I have 20 years of e-mails from my family, and I don't want to get rid of it, but I hate Yahoo!  I don't even know why Yahoo! exists.   It's the worst.  It's terrible.  Does anybody here have Yahoo?


GUTFELD:  I'm a weirdo.  I hate myself.

GUILFOYLE:  Every time I see that, I think it's strange.

PERINO:  We still know people that have EarthLink.

GUTFELD:  Oh, really?


GUTFELD:  I know one person.

PERINO:  Yes, someone has EarthLink.

All right.  Do you ever want to be, like, in a famous painting?  Well, now you can.  If you go to a museum in the Philippines, it's called Art in Island, and there are 3-D, like, structures and you can get inside and be a part of the painting and really experience it.

I kind of like this idea, because it gets you -- those are actually people getting involved.  I know you can't see.  There's somebody lying on the ground, and you can't even see it, because it says "World's First Selfie Museum."  There it is.

GUTFELD:  Our producers.

PERINO:  That's a Monday "One More Thing" for you.

GUTFELD:  There you go.

GUILFOYLE:  That is a Monday "One More Thing."

All right, Julie.  Can you beat any of these?

ROGINSKY:  I can't beat that.  You can't beat Bolling's.  That's -- put us in therapy for that one.

I love history.  And today would have been Thomas Jefferson's, I don't know what, very big birthday.  I can't do math.

But listen, quickly, turns out a report just came out very recently five years after the Declaration of Independence, he was going to pack it up, go back to Monticello, do nothing.  And the guy would never have been president, Louisiana Purchase, none of that stuff would have happened.  So I think it's a pretty amazing thing that we just found this out.

GUTFELD:  And he had great hair.

GUILFOYLE:  OK.  Can we look at my absorbing of video and the people and the ball, reenacting, like, "Raiders of the Lost Ark."  Apparently, people find this to be incredibly fun, and they're reenacting that scene.

PERINO:  Never.

GUILFOYLE:  I don't know.  Try it if you're in New Zealand.  But that's it for us.  "Special Report" is next and Rubio's announcement.
