in detail, varney and company. right now it is "the five." hi, everyone. i'm women sder by guilfoyle. it's 5:00 in new york city and this is "the five." well, "the washington post" released their ten biggest pinocchios of the year and guess what topped the list. >> if you like your health care plan, you'll be able to keep it, period. >> remember after the president got caught in that lie he lie about what he said. >> if you had or had one of these plans before the affordable care act came into
law and you really liked that plan, what we said was you could keep it. if it hasn't chained since the law's passed. >> how charming. here's dana milbic. >> it's a low point. it doesn't help to have neutral groups calling you the liar of the year. >> how low can you go? >> well, maybe as far as that, i can't imagine he can top that one. i don't know where you go from there. >> credibility, polling. >> there was something in "the washington post" talking about what candidates in 2014 are going to run and to their surprise they weren't going to run on the economy or job, they were going to stay on obamacare. this is just -- what president
obama lied about wasn't about the website. the website is still having its problems. once it comes back up, what he was lying about according to "the washington post" and politifact was the nuts and bolts of obamacare. no, you can't keep your doctor. no, you can't keep your policy. no, it's not going to cost you less. no, we're not bending the cost curve down. >> it's known in the guts since the economy is getting better. the united states leading world out of bad economic times. >> stay on obamacare. >> for the rich people. that's a fox news alert. dana -- >> hey, hey, i didn't have my wi-fi connected. >> oh, why? was it connected to the obamacare website? >> no, it should get working. >> dana is going to have a fit. is this like a communications
bummer to use a technical -- >> i think dana millbank deserves the understatement of the year when he says that you're lied. that's not helpful. i think he gets the understatement of the year. dana is an equal opportunity analyst and, you know, when he's coming after you, he can be really brutal but when he's going after your opponent it's delicious. i love it. here's my problem with this whole thing, yes, i think it was the lie of the year but i think it was the lie of the year in 2010. had the media not criticized -- spent all their time criticizing people at this table saying the law wasn't going to work well or work as well as they were saying, they were criticizing us rather than focusing on the law and politico article the deep dive in the magazine that looked at the media's role at not asking hard questions and trying
to pick up the pieces of the president's policy. >> i think you would like him because dana to dana. >> dane and i are very close. >> greg, what do you make of the situation? do you agree with your co-host? >> what she said. but i think the problem that the white house has right now is that they thought they could outlast this new cycle which they have with just about every single crisis whether ghazi, the doj but they can't get past it because obama care is a diarrhea of crisis and can't be stopped. going back to what you said the lesson for everyone is how do you prevent collusion between the media and white house prior to an election which is what happened with obama care, the irs, the regulations, fast and furious. the media bashing obama now is like an inmate pretending to find god after he's in jail. it would have been nice if he
found religion before he mugged that family. once he gets out of jail he's going to go back to mugging. they'll be of obama then once a new liberal comes along -- >> can i follow up on that. >> i complete a agree 100%. in a sports analogy. when they found out bonds was juicing they wanted to put an asterisk in. now they're calling it a lie, president obama was touting it in 2011 throughout the whole re-election campaign. we should put an asterisk next to the president's win in 2012. >> steroids. that's his steroids. >> lying is his juice. okay, bob, i'm sure you wholeheartedly agree. >> first of all, the good news about benghazi, it wasn't
revealed the cia would stand down, leaving this aside unlike the fast and furious or benghazi this as greg pointed out has a constantly new story. if you look at the election year you can see this thing being a problem and leaving it up to you guys it will be a problem every day. i thought we were done with it. everybody died because of it but we found new ways to get to it. >> no, we've got more ways. dana. >> i went around on our e-mail thread and sent a little paragraph from the telegraph yesterday in the uk which basically was that the national health service has declared basically a national disaster. those stories are on the front page every day since it was started so to your point why don't we ever learn from their mistakes. >> what it is, obama care is the potatoes off crisis. you can make so many different mealing out of it. >> french fries on monday. >> scalloped. >> tater tots.
>> it doesn't end. delicious with an extra dose of ketchup. >> then i'll hammer you some more. >> let's assume this unfolds the way you say it will. tens of millions without insurance next year. is that possible? >> that's why you have a problem. >> what happens -- >> tens of millions of more already. >> everybody will crowd in an emergency room. >> this is a great question, what are they doing now? >> they're going to the emergency room. >> exactly. >> the other thing that could happen if the government changes, if the republicans take over there could be significant changes that the president would in be -- be in a position saying no. the other people might be able to find care. >> can i tell you something, bob? what happens -- i'm not arguing here, i just want to know what happens? >> but i'll tell you what else. >> they acquire insurance or start paying the 1% of your
adjusted gross -- >> they live with a huge amount of anxiety they don't have the insurance they had before obamacare. >> bob is the king of polls. you know, bob is in trouble because of his mattress of support, his sleepy support has been the millennials and then also millennials say four in five obamacare will worsen -- this is a problem. he strongly relied on it for his presidency and political will to get things done and it is compromised severely battle tested at this point. >> the thing that would bother me, it's also the least affected by obamacare. they may end up paying fines but don't think they'll need insurance that much. the fact it's soft there is a bit of a problem if you're coming up to immigration where they will need young voters to put their voices to it. >> you know -- >> and the paperwork is behind
for obamacare. >> what i'm hoping is that it is a vaccine against intrusive government in the way a vaccine has the toxin in it and provides an inoculation against further stupidity. >> a polio vaccine is a little touch of the polio. >> this is a big touch. >> this is one high sixth of the -- harvard did their own -- i wouldn't call them right wing. >> well, the professors are. >> they did their study and asked mir millennials how likely they were to sign up for obamacare. 44% said unlikely, 22% said likely. >> most kids going to harvard will be able to get employ er sponsored health coverage. >> will you or will you not. 2-1 in a place like harvard --
>> the media being so negative, who would sign up for it. >> americans on how it's doing, not well. 76%. >> of course, not. >> and very well, 3%. bob -- >> they've been bombarded every single day. >> bombarded because the problems are real. the media is not making up the problems. >> i think some of them -- >> you think they're trying to make well. >> i think on that poll for thely millennials. it's not just about the website. i thought the initial polling would show they were offended that the government is so bad at doing just the basic when it comes to technology but does seem to be more. >> the media, you can't count them out and will always frame a disaster like this as an anomaly. every single failure is an anomaly or exception. success is the -- somehow
they've brainwashed everyone. >> it sounds like a bad thing. >> not good for you. what is good to repeat this, charles krautheimer. >> i love how you can't wait to get your teeth into republicans throwing it at republicans on a week when this administration. by the way, the viewers won't hear a week in which the secretary of hhs unilaterally or lawlessly changed every deadline in the obamacare law without any legal authority in a way that is absolutely astonishing but you won't hear about this on this show. >> we just did. >> courageous to tell it like it is. you can get charles krauthammer for the full hour right here "on the five." we hope you will join us then.
a trip around the table. >> as much as i love charles, the fact he is on that show, a panelist on that show, it's closing after next week. so take a shot. that was a -- >> almost 30 year, bob. >> but it's closing. it's closing. it's down, finished. >> that says more about mbs than charles. >> bob likes to rain on parades. >> he's the ambassador of timing. greg? >> all i know is i think there should be a metal band in krauthammer. >> german metal -- >> it would be awesome. krauthamm krauthammer. >> from you are mouth to the twitter -- >> you didn't give me a last thought. >> i beg you, wi-fi guy, make the wi-fi work before i have a connipti conniption. >> the germans have great movies. >> we're clear. the help you might be getting. next, we are just getting
♪ get on the join in join the love train ♪ strong start to the week. josh. what all right, welcome back to "the five." african-american community has supported the democratic party for decades overwhelmingly so it's an uphill for that party to make inroads in the black community. stephen a. smith is known for speaking his mind. he thinks black conservatives need to be heard. >> the black population hasn't given the republican party more than 15% of its vote since 1964 and anybody who is deemed a black conservative, i am not one of them, i'm a registered
independent, those of us who i know that are black conservatives are considered pariahs and are ostracized in our communities and makes no sense whatsoever. >> we'll kick this around and in the commercial break i said that's the most important part of the show thaw don't get to see -- we're having a debate as to where does the term gridiron originate. >> they just drew a diagram. >> this is the original football field. it was a gridiron. two lines going both ways. anybody knows -- >> let me ask eric, can you explain why -- >> i believe the gridiron -- it was applied to a football field because it looked like that from the stand, the original cooking surface. >> you know why that matters today? >> no. >> on topic. the other sound bite we have is from jim brown. >> somehow it seems like he's over his head. i did along with my wife and the
rooneys campaign for him in ohio because that was a key state. but if i had to say does he rate an "a" or does he rate a "d," it would be very difficult. i would give him a "c." >> words from jim brown, the rating of the president. what do you think of that. >> what i like is for people to be open and honks and vocal about these things. if you have an opinion about that, not popular to criticize the president but i appreciate candor and honesty and they're entitled to their beliefs, whether stephen smith, jim brown, many times controversial individual but i think he's sharing his sentiment and voicing whether you're white or black or hispanic or asian that you supported a man you had great high hopes and beliefs in and it is left short. >> greg, you talked about before about plaque interelectric wallet and conservatives
ostracized from the community or made fun of. do you think there is a turns point or just an anomaly to use a freight from the first -- >> i don't know. i mean, in my -- black conservatives, black chrpism is a cancer on liberalism if it spreads they're dead because it will break the hold of this racial warfare that seems to be kind of their go-to weapon against republicanism. you know what a true radical is is a black conservative. hollywood does not know they exist. if you try to find them as a character they're not there. there's only one black conservative i can think of and that's darth vader. >> aren't you glad -- >> black conservatism, they're ostracized, probably true but what they say doesn't make a lot of sense. >> really. >> thomas sewell. >> what are you talking about -- >> i don't agree with an awful lot of what he says. >> you can disagree but you
shouldn't say what he says is nonsense. >> you said it doesn't make a lot of sense and cited him as an example. >> you pick out my words now. >> sentence diagram. >> if you were advising republicans looking at 2014 and beyond because they need to grow their voting base, when it comes to african-americans, what would you say is the best type of message that the republicans based on principle could deliver? >> well, again, i don't want to be hip contract cal, i think they have to stay on obamacare. i wouldn't play around on these issues. stay on obamacare but i find it very interesting, james brown, stephen a. smith speaking it the way they see it is great. the issue is blacks i believe voted for president obama in excess of 90% and i think the approval rating among blacks is almost 89% is the number but if you look at what's going on since he has held office, the
black unemployment rate has actually widened compared to whites. historically around double the white unemployment rate and gone down to 1.6 times the unemployment rate before the presidency and now over 2.2 times what the whites are and are losing ground. i can't imagine that would be -- demand or command. >> are those facts getting to them? that's the point. >> i don't now why it's not. >> it always sort of follows on what happens in the white community. the economy is starting to boom, number one. we don't talk about that in this show. >> whites are outpacing blacks -- >> don't you care about that? >> do i care about that? is that a fair question? do i care, of course, i do but i don't believe it's obama's fault and i, by the way, is not giving up faith in obama. >> if you're part of the black
economy and see you're not getting better under obamano n m nomics. >> isn't that the same exact argument we had income and equality? now you're taking the exact opposite side. >> let me ask if you were a conservative black interelectric watt person and wanted to make inroads in hollywood do you think there's any hope there or should they aban done it. >> i don't think there's any hope. no, i think this is a long battle. it's not about skin color. it's about skin thickness. you got to be tough if you're a black conservative because you're facing the white, left and the media who are angry they have no effect on you. you got to be an alan west type. screw you guys. i don't care what "salon" or
"slate" or "the new york times" -- >> you kind of remind me of a black conservative. >> where did that come from? >> because he's not going to back down from his opinions. he's going to say what he thinks -- >> my heart is black. >> we'll ponder that on the commercial break. more disturbing reports about the nelson mandela interpreter and a secret admission from susan sarandon next on "the five." -- susan sur andon, coming up.
one enthusiastic tv host. first up the fake interpreter getting the full "saturday night live" treatment. watch. >> i have been listen iing to wt americans are saying. and some very valid concerns are being raised. >> well, adding to the mystery there are reports that the interpreter has added burning to people to his rap sheet. k.g., you chimed in. >> i mean, i know, this story is really horrible. the only decent part was the "saturday night live" aspect. how did they not catch this guy? how is the fact -- no, i'm saying he's done this before and been interpreting and a criminal. does it get much worse? >> your thoughts? >> i read somewhere where one of the reasons as the south african government is trying to explain what happened they said that they think that somebody took the lowest bid which doesn't
usually happen in government but in this case they got what they paid for. i do think it might be time to sort of bury this -- let this story go after this one. we obviously he's a deranged person who has a lot of help but never should have been near all those dignitaries. >> bad security breach. >> he was accused of killing people by putting tires around their neck and starting fires which is one of the nastiest ways during the uprise in soweto which was the black township outside of johannesburg -- basically he was doing one of the nastiest things in the world. everybody got arrested. he got sent home because he was insane. >> this tells you how screwed up south africa is this guy got so close. the emotional import of the event allowed a loosening of standards for our president.
our president would not have allowed that to happen but they allowed it to happen here because it was an emotional event and maybe, maybe our white house security or the secret service didn't want to make something out of it. >> they should have. >> we got to move. next story we talked about florida state star and storied quarterback jameis winston can add heisman trophy winner to his bio. >> i trust in the process and it's truth has delivered positive outcomes because after all the things i've been through i remember when my daddy trusted in the process and he risked his job and was jobless three years ago when i was out there doing whatever i did to provide for my family, but the truth prevailed because eventually i got me a scholarship. this heisman isn't just for jameis winston, it's for florida state. >> all right, jameis winston won with a wide margin even fresh
off a controversial rape charge and charges were dropped and he is your 2013 heisman winner, the youngest in history. >> he is a second freshman in a row to get this heisman trophy which is very unusual but i think obviously on the numbers he deserved it. no question about it. but i still question when he said owe had a rough month what when the woman that went through the rape? >> a problem we know cuss on the person that won. what about the 314 million who didn't? it raiseses question why do you have to play noobl to win the heisman trophy? that is bigoted toward the uncoordinated in this country. i'm boycotting all sports until i can be eligible for the hooisz. >> technically eligible. >> it's not votes. >> your thoughts. >> i guess facts are facts. this was not a character award and you can't argue with them. >> k.g.?
>> given the controversy and nature of, you know, an allegation like this there's a loot of accusation that the investigation wasn't conducted and it's a he said/she said and comes down to a popularity case. >> does he have to -- does he have to complete it in college before he goes to the process? >> i think he had gone through sophomore year. >> well, we'll leave it there. we have to move on h is a big one. last one for today, ever wonder why hollywood types are so weird when they hit the awards shows. susan sarandon coming clean, so to speak. >> name one major hollywood event that you showed up stoned. >> only one? i would say almost all except the oscars. >> almost all except the oscars. >> so they're all baked. that explains a lot strange commentary. i don't speak and i doefshts
care what they do but can't they wait until after the show. >> absolutely not. i encourage them being high. it's not the pot but the politics. perhaps if she was stoned aim the time she wouldn't have stupid politics. >> most of the time. what about your politics? >> that is my point. responsible people having fun, i don't have a problem with it. >> well, i was moved to make a confession. i mean how do you think i get through this show every day? i mean obviously there are chemical s involved. i'm not surprised. are you hungry? >> i think most people at those award shows are on something because they're so boring. >> are you on molly by any chance. >> do you know poly. >> i only know what that is because you guys told me. >> because of the miley cyrus video. >> she's out. she's very clean about it. >> i never went to anything where i wasn't stoned for about
35 years. >> that explains a lot. poor mondale but i tell you i don't have any problem with it. i don't wish everyone would get stoned. if they do, doesn't bother me. >> they're going to do what they want to do. nobody's baby-sitter. >> how does she stay so thin? >> i'm personally against it. but that's my -- meaning it's not for me. i like some red wine, what's it. >> dana doesn't either. >> this rare topic we all agree on and think you're going to do what you want. >> i don't think it's going to change their viewpoint so much. >> listen, i'll have cocktails till -- >> i know that. >> you'll take vodka to the face. >> i just don't like -- all right. >> where else do you take it, kimberly? some way to take vodka i'm not aware of? >> there is not.
>> ooh. >> is that an elf? >> oh, geez. their excuse, it's for charity. last year the organizers raised 45,000 bucks for toys for tots. hooray. my preferred charity are the bar keeps, the cops who had to work that night. that's not an excuse to not tip, or pee in someone's doorways or the city workers that worked with the rainbow of body fluids behind. using charity so excuse bad behavior is okay if outweighs the bad behavior. i'm not so sure it does in santacon. drink up but it's never an excuse for me to infringe on your good time or vice versa. we do not share a bloodstream. only you can feel the buzz. when i see people abuse of gift of alcohol it makes me sad like watching an inexperienced driver
grind the gears of a sports car. the best drinker should never revealed how hammered is. the mark of the pro is that you never know. right now i'm seeing three kimberlys. but who's complaining? >> am i a grinch, dana. >> when the topics came around and i heard you were going to be against santacon, i was shocked. on the upper east side they were perfectly delightful and shopping along madison avenue and ran into shep smith. perfectly delightful afternoon. he was not wearing a santa outfit. it was a beautiful day. i didn't know that other stuff going on. i blame one person? >> who. >> de blasio. >> pile it on. >> liberals dominate the upper east side, don't they? the wealthy ones.
what were you doing there have. >> i was shopping on my way -- >> she was stimulating the economy. >> hello. >> listen, i think -- i've seen this thing in my neighborhood. they leave sober and come back smashed. they're loud. i mean it's not giving santa a good name, you know, it's just a bad idea. >> i don't know why anybody sanctioned it. go door to door you'll raise more money. >> eric, what if a child is walking down the street and sees santa vomiting. >> well, that happened. >> yes. >> i guess -- look -- >> santa has a stomach virus. you have a right to drink. drinking is fine but how creepy to see them fight. did you see the cheap shots. >> they were the bad elves. >> the it's the chain, the haymakers from left field. >> and the he was did that too. >> the he was are very badly. >> only eight citations handed
out. >> it's hard to identify which saefrnts did it. it's the guy from the south pole, it's the guy from the north pole. >> they think -- >> when you wear the costume you think you're entitled. third avenue -- >> in an elf costume. >> in penny-farthing and the guy demanded my known, santa demanded my phone, if they are santa they demand anything. >> did you give it to him? >> no. >> and did he demand you to make toys? >> look at you. the santa cash around the city. you got -- >> what's your specialty in santa -- when you're making your little toys? >> geez. >> all right. we're done here. coming up, a husband is shot and killed after going christmas shopping with his wife at the mall. and there's a manhunt under way for the shooter. the detail when we come back.

greg is still looking for his one more thing. christmas shopping turns deadly. last night 30-year-old dustin freed land was killed after he and his wife were carjacked outside new jersey. his wife is okay. here's what happened. >> the husband, the victim had opened the door for his wife, she had started to get in the vehicle. as he got to the driver's side and started to get ready to enter the vehicle he was approached by two males and was shot before he entered his vehicle. >> there's a manhunt under way for the couple who fled in the suv. i don't want to start a raging battle over gun control, but new jersey -- yeah, he was shot. he was shot. >> new jersey has some of the highest -- >> i -- >> that's ridiculous. criminals get guns. here's the issue. that mall, i live three miles from that mall. there's an area of affluence
right next to an area of extreme let's call it lower class poverty. this happens a lot. i've had three cars stolen. >> three range rovers. >> the bottom line is this was a guy was approached with his wife coming out of the mall. two carjackers said giver me the keys and he pushed back. told the guys, no. gets two bullets to the head. >> 30 years of age. >> someone approaches you wants your car, you're intimidated. hand it over. >> did any -- >> i was standing 15 feet from my car on the third -- the other -- >> can i say one thing. what you said is 100% right. it's not worth it. even if you don't have insurance anymore like bolling, you should turn over your car. we don't know for sure he refused because the cops aren't saying that. there's speculation he said something. guess what he probably doesn't want to turn over his wife to some murderous thug and worried about her safety. it made sense.
30 years old, an attorney. >> they found the car which has a notoriously high crime right so can we draw some conclusions from that? >> my conclusion these guys will be caught pretty quickly because they usually are. it's an interesting crime. what are they going to gain out of this? they can't sell the car. just a terrible crime. i don't even know what else to say, it's awful. >> they dumped it. >> crime like this does go -- it goes up around christmas and people shopping. have a lot of money. >> you don't think that your -- it -- one of the great things about america we live in this free society that where you have a government that through the taxpayer dollars we pay for protection. you just assume and you have to in order to live your life you'll be okay if you go to the mall to get christmas presents. >> but they love to steal those range rovers. >> shares your confidence of being able to go to school or work or just even shopping.
