1:30 am
will decide. trish: right now the numbers are not on the democrats' side. caught on tape, annex-cia boss expressing gratitude for the deep state's impeachment push. >> thank god for the deep state. trish: former characteristics a station chief daniel hoffman and kt mcfarland are here reacting orlando isn't just the theme park capital of the world, it also has the highest growth in manufacturing jobs in the us. it's a competition for the talent. employees need more than just a paycheck. you definitely want to take advantage of all the benefits you can get. 2/3 of employees said that the workplace is an important source for personal savings and protection solutions. the workplace should be a source of financial security. keeping your people happy is what keeps your people. that's financial wellness. put your employees on a path to financial wellness with prudential.
1:31 am
my hands are everything to me. but i was diagnosed with dupuytren's contracture. and it got to the point where things i took for granted got tougher to do.
1:32 am
thought surgery was my only option. turns out i was wrong. so when a hand specialist told me about nonsurgical treatments, it was a total game changer. like you, my hands have a lot more to do. learn more at today.
1:33 am
like you, my hands have a lot more to do. he's been workingressed to pon for months.dea john got dressed for his first first date in what feels like a really long time. mateo and kevin got dressed for their sunday ritual. and our stylists helped millions of other americans get dressed for millions of other personal moments - big and small. at stitch fix we don't just see your size or style. we see you. stitch fix. personal styling for everybody.
1:34 am
trish: you have seen the transcript of the president's call with the ukrainian president. the words on the page don't equal the words of a quid pro quo. any suggestion that there was pressure is an interpretation.
1:35 am
alexander vindman testified he was deeply disturbed by what was on the call. are americans supposed to have their votes reversed because someone was disturbed? >> thank god for the deep state. i mean, i think everyone here has seen this progression of diplomats and intelligence officers and white house people trooping up to capitol hill saying these are people doing their duty or responding to a higher call. trish: really? is that what it is? or do they just not like donald trump? joining me right now, former cia station chief, daniel hoffman and kt mcfarland.
1:36 am
kt, what do you make of his comments? >> you know, just think about this. this is the director of the characteristics a in front of a group of nameless, faceless bureaucrats and they are laughing about the fact that 63 million americans are voted for donald trump can be dashed after he side because they don't happen to like the result of the election. i experienced the deep state personally as deputy national security advisor to president trump and they know exactly how to subvert the president if they wanted. we would have meetings in the situation room and within a half-hour the meetings were leaking out with their own particular spin. the same thing would happen to president trump when he would call foreign leaders. within a day the transcripts were leaked out by people who didn't like what trump was saying and thought they were far smarter and better equipped to
1:37 am
rule this country than the american people. trish: brennan was laughing at mclaughlin's comment about the deep state, daniel hoffman. i would have to assume, you try and put that aside when you go to work every day in the intelligence services. but you have your own biases. but for whatever reason, donald trump brings out those biases among people. when you look at a guy like brennan and some of the others whether it's mccabe, et cetera, are they behaving in a rational way or a way dictated by their own personal bias, and how dangerous is that for our country? >> i draw a distinction between a partisan hack like john brennan and john mclaughlin who doesn't have any predisposed
1:38 am
bias against the president or the president's policy. john mclaughlin and -- brennan, i called out brennan win was the first one to do it in april of 2018. leave him aside in this discussion. if we are talking about john mclaughlin. what john mclaughlin was doing was being a little bit facetious in his comments. he was saying sat cia we collect intelligence and we make an political judgments to the best of our ability based on that. trish: let me go back to this ukraine transcript. we all read it and granted it's a memo of a transcript. it's not absolutely perfect. vindman was upset because they left out two words. but i don't know if two words will change the entire tenor of the conversation. but vindman's suggested view of
1:39 am
the tone and whether or not he was fearful about any of this, how is that relevant? if we can ride the transcript, what do we care about how some intelligence professional felt that day like whatever i was picking up vibes in the room? how is that relevant compared to the actual words themselves? >> he was not in the oval office with the president. he did not participate in a brefght president before that phone call. he was in the white house situation room listening in on a deadline. he had no idea what the president was thinking that day, it was all vindman's impressions. when i read his transcript and his opening statement, one thing that struck me. i used to hire these guys. i did not hire vindman with i don't know him. he has a good reputation.
1:40 am
but when he says he was angry and upset that he didn't get to brief trump. too bad, that's not really your job. the other thing i found -- trish: he thought it was. he devoted his entire life and career to this. maybe he's personally insulted. >> he has his right and responsibility to give his opinion to the president. but the president has the right and responsibility to either take his advice and sit or disregard it. but it's not anybody's call except the president's. not an aide. not an assistant. not a career government bureaucrat. not even the director of the cia. we elected the president of the united states. we didn't elect any of these other guys. trish: daniel given your fascinating intelligence background. i love to hear you pronounce names in russians. you have had a lot of experience
1:41 am
there and a lot of experience in the middle east. what do you think might have gone down in terms of the christopher steele stuff. i know we don't have all day. but as we look forward to seeing the i.g. report and look forward to getting barr's report, now it's a criminal investigation. what might be the cord nation between western intelligence. >> i wrote an op-ed in the "wall street journal" in january, 2018 where i debunked the so-called steele dossier, there was a lot of concern how the information was collected. and the likelihood the russian intelligence was using it as a con due to it spread disinformation. -- a conduit to spread disinformation. vladimir putin has the whole story and he will try to use it against us because there is nothing he likes more than when our intelligence officers are
1:42 am
used for partisan fodder. that's the situation we are in. it's an uncomfortable place intelligence officers. i would hate to have to be there myself. trish: coming up, america's future is at stake. a report that liberal activists are targeting high school honors classes citing white toxicity. democrats can't impeach the president on the economy. my next guest says the chain a trade deal could boost the market even further. creating an an' tougher

trish: anyone look for signs of a slowdown in the u.s. economy, you can keep look. the jobs numbers coming in higher-than the estimate bringing the stock market soaring to all-time highs.
1:47 am
people are starting to look for work. you had 325,000 americans saying maybe i'll go get a job. white house economic advisor larry cud lowe is saying the china trade deal is coming along nicely. >> president trump is optimistic about the china trade deal. agriculture chapter is virtually completed. the financials where american companies will get 100% ownership, security firms, that chapter is virtually wrapped up, the currency instability and ma nip st. louis chapter is virtually wrapped up. and progress has been made on intellectual property issues.
1:48 am
trish: this could be really good for our economy and stock mark it. larry is saying we are close. are we close? >> it's extraordinary to even be in this position. we haven't seen this kind of approach since the time of ron solid reagan. for decades our presidents have had the united states playing the patsy. now we have an outside were coming to washington and he's doing what he said he would do, he's putting america first. we brought these guys to the table. we'll always be the strongest party in any conversation. and we'll get a lot done. trish: people said it would be disastrous for our country and we wouldn't see gdp growth. in with the gm strike we are
1:49 am
still growing. how much stronger does it make us when we go into the negotiation room with china. >> 303,000 new jobs. record highs as you just mentioned in all our stock market indicators. this is something of a showdown between us and china. whose economy of is more vulnerable? ours will always be stronger. the president has such good instincts. america's strength is based on freedom. we have that, they don't. trish: we are the biggest customer. >> they need us so much more than we need them. there isn't a situation in the world where america won't be the stronger party whether it's military or economic or anything else. trish: i worry sometimes if we don't take advantage of the
1:50 am
economic strength we have right now, you run the risk that you are not going to be as strong economically in another four years, in another 10 years or 20 years. if china is playing for the next 100 to 1,000 years, where are we've? >> that true in a bunch of ways. we happen to be in a good moment in a cycle. that's not something that happens passively. deregulation. tax cuts. policies friendly toward this big energy boom. but we are at a great point in the cycle thanks to our leadership in washington. there is a deeper underlying things. and yes we cannot degrade those and take them for granted. but -- >> intellectual property, that was one of the things larry has concerns on. and i suspect part of the reason for that is that we have here in
1:51 am
the united states of america and most of of the western world been governed by western principles when it comes to property. it goes all the way back to old england. they don't have that same governance. they don't look at property in the same way. we have to bring them into that respect for property. respect for intellect you'll property. >> these are important parts. but just parts of the reason for our underlying dynamism that will always be an advantage. ultimately we'll always win them. but the theft has to stop. can you imagine mitt romney or barack obama trying to actually take on that problem the way
1:52 am
this president is doing? trish: he's the bull in the china shop, right? i'm going, i don't care. and the good news is the u.s. economy is still holding strong. so that gives him a lot of wind in his sails. coming up. america's future is at stake. liberal activists are targeting high school honors classes. kat timpf has that story for us. i have a horrifying halloween story of my own from last night. you will want to hear that. kat timpf is here. she is reacting to all of this she is reacting to all of this and a whole lot more after this. yeah, that's half the fun of a new house. seeing what people left behind in the attic. well, saving on homeowners insurance with geico's help was pretty fun too. ahhhh, it's a tiny dancer. they left a ton of stuff up here.
1:53 am
welp, enjoy your house. nope. no thank you. geico could help you save on homeowners and renters insurance. geico could help you save i've always been i'm still going for my best... even though i live with a higher risk of stroke due to afib not caused by a heart valve problem. so if there's a better treatment than warfarin, i'll go for that. eliquis. eliquis is proven to reduce stroke risk better than warfarin. plus has significantly less major bleeding than warfarin. eliquis is fda-approved and has both. what's next? sharing my roots. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising.
1:54 am
eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis, the number one cardiologist-prescribed blood thinner. ask your doctor if eliquis is what's next for you.
1:55 am
1:56 am
1:57 am
>> let's bring everybody down? how does that a make sense? we should -- people are struggling, we should try to lift them up and not punish success. trish: right. so you can't, you know, be valedictorian anymore, you can't be in an honors class anymore. and it seems to me like we're catering to the lowest common denominator. so all those kids that would be in the honors class -- and, by the way, it's not like they're all white men. >> exactly. trish: which is what they assume. i think it's racist. >> it is. what about the girls that are in the honors class? what about the african-americans? asians? trish: i mean, it's just bizarre. is so you're going to deny those kids an opportunity? >> yeah, absolutely. and it's -- why are we trying to encourage everyone to be the best they can be rather than bringing people down? trish: that's liberalism. this story i found disturbing -- >> oh, yeah. trish: -- and a little bit funny, but mostly disturbing.
1:58 am
ernst and young is under fire for a leaked training seminar from 2018 where female employees were given, well, just some of the following bits of crazy advice like don't talk to a man face to face. [laughter] >> should be fired. trish: don't be too aggressive or outspoken. don't directly confront men in meetings. huh. they also said shouldn't wear short skirts -- >> yeah. trish: clearly, i would be like -- >> i would be long gone. i read through this, and it was so bizarre. they said you need to have manicuredded nails. i don't know a ton about accounting, but i'm pretty sure you can do the spread sheets without polish on your fingers. my favorite part was this part where they said women's brains are like pancakes because of the way they absorb information but men's brains are like waffles -- i'm like, how high was the person who wrote this?
1:59 am
what are you talking about? trish: 2018, there was also a bit about how you sit, if you're going to talk to a man, sit at an angle, cross your legs. he low, mid -- hello, did nobody live through that whole me too thing? >> not 1818, 2018. this was a real thing. trish: i know! [laughter] >> when i first saw this story, i kept blinking really hard and looking at the screen again to make sure i was actually seeing it. trish: did you go trick or treating? >> i didn't. i did stand-up last night, so i didn't give out any candy. trish: i'm going to make that up to you, because at my house i had gotten a whole bunch of this candy, and my kids kind of went a little crazy and said you're not going to hand this out, i don't know if the viewers can see, i love these things. >> they're delicious. trish: they're like little miniature candies, and the kids are, like, no mom, we just moved to this neighborhood. we can't be the weird family that gives out the european chocolate. [laughter] so we had to go with kit kats
2:00 am
and stuff. so anyway, this is for you -- >> because i couldn't give it out. i appreciate it. i didn't get to get any candy. trish: happen halloween. have a great weekend. >> you too. trish: we've got vice president mike pence >> i am hoop. >> i'm baird jones. >> two eccentrics from new york's disco days. >> if you were on baird's list, your social life was assured. >> two oddball art collections. >> all right. >> mel brooks, david bowie, art carney, muhammad ali. >> but the weirdest thing about this story... >> and it's really solid. nothing's going to fall off. >> how the square from the burbs ends up with both. >> i can only imagine this driving around the streets of new york. >> will this two-for-one strange inheritance -- >> i've got $150, can get a $175? once, twice. first piece sold. >> ...ultimately add up?
