♪ >> kimberly: i am kimberly guilfoyle with juan williams, jesse watters, dana perino and greg gutfeld. it's 5:00 in new york city, and this is "the five" ." all eyes on capitol hill today where president trump's new supreme court nominee judge brett kavanaugh's meeting with lawmakers. many democrats fiercely opposing the new pick for trump is reminding everyone what matters most when making his selection for the supreme court. >> in keeping with president reagan's legacy, i do not ask about a nominee's personal opinions.
2:01 pm
what matters is not a judge's political views but whether they can set aside those views to do what the law and the constitution requires. >> kimberly: the white house thing they expect kavanaugh to be confirmed by october 1 head of the political battles. >> if confirmed by the senate, i will keep an open mind in every case, and i will always strive to preserve the constitution of the united states and the american rule of law. >> kimberly: as we mentioned, liberals are losing our minds over president trump's pick. former democrat vision governor terry mcauliffe tweeting "kavanaugh's nomination threatens the lives of millions of americans." nancy pelosi is vowing to "avenge" president obama by
2:02 pm
fighting president trump's nominee. >> the ramifications of this battle will last a generation and more. i'm going to fight this nomination with everything i've got. >> if you are a young woman in america or you care about a young woman in america, pay attention to this. because it will forever change your life. >> what is at stake? it's women's freedom. our freedom to make our own decisions, our freedom to decide when, how many children we are going to have. >> we are in the fight of our lives. >> this seems to be, of all the people, the most self-serving person he could use in order to protect himself from this criminal investigation. to avoid a constitutional crisis, we cannot let this confirmation process go forward. >> kimberly: as predicted, dana, of course, there's going to be opinions. it wouldn't be liberals versus conservatives if you didn't have
2:03 pm
ping-pong back-and-forth. so as predicted, they went a little bit nuts. they would've been nuts about anyone who was selected. someone here at this table has personal knowledge and experience of judge kavanaugh. raise your hand. >> dana: did he put you in jail once? >> greg: yes. spent a weekend in tahiti. >> dana: i guess it will come out in the papers. first on the idea that brett kavanaugh so objectionable. what's interesting about the opposition is that last night that all their signs made up and then they would pick a sharpie and write in the name as soon as it was announced by president trump at 9:00 p.m. they were handmade signs. no matter who's going to be nominated, they were going to face this. i think the terry mcauliffe tweet probably would've said, no matter who it was, this means that millions of people are going to die. the opposition is definitely spun up. i'm curious about how it will play out and we will deal with that in the future in terms of
2:04 pm
what gillibrand and kamala harris were saying, how it will play in terms of not just the mentor was but 2020 and 2024 and beyond. i think a lot of it is scare tactics. that's why a lot of people use. chuck schumer is an interesting situation. he has a base that wants them to fight it he says he's going to fight with all he has. but even with all he has, because they do not have the power, it will not be enough. at some point, he's going to let those red state democrats go and decide on their own if they want to vote with the president and if they want to win reelection, they probably want to do that. i knew brett kavanaugh before he was a judge. i worked in the white house with him. one thing i didn't know until he said last night and i know his wife as well. i didn't know that their first date was on september 10, 2001. it was the next morning when they were walking into the white house that the secret service started pulling people out because of the impending danger. they are a wonderful couple. i loved his interaction with his daughters, but i will say his
2:05 pm
job as the staff secretary was to build consensus. imagine greg if you had to submit your monologue to 20 offices and everyone got to take a whack i added it and i was the staff secretary and i got to negotiate with everyone about chaining this word or that word. that was his job there. every email he ever put through as a staff secretary is not relevant to how he would rule on the law. >> kimberly: fantastic. i'm so glad i went to you first. greg, what do you have to offer not about tahiti? >> greg: first date was september 10. i would be worried about the second date. what could happen? >> kimberly: it went very well and they are a beautiful couple. >> greg: this process is no different than ball possession in football. you have the ball, you put points on the board. that means is you pick as many judges as you can. if you are on the defense, your
2:06 pm
job is to block the points. you don't want the judges in there. right now the republicans have the ball and the democrats don't have the ball so no matter who they put up there, it's going to be that they are not just unqualified but evil. this is going to be an evil person. my favorite part is how everybody's an instant expert on this guy when they never heard of him before. people became fans of the washington capitals when they were in the stanley cup. suddenly they knew everything about hockey. disused to be separate. this whole separate used to be separate from politics until one word: robert bork. a brilliant mind who was poisoned by political venom. everything changed with bork. he was crucified. people were befuddled by the attacks on him, and ever since then, the democrats have always been like this and i think the republicans have been pushovers. i think that has to change. we need to look at this as a
2:07 pm
political turf war and fight as hard as possible as they do because they are going to >> greg: everybody. >> greg: was the first time, the media broke the political seal. they took a brilliant mind and they destroyed him. it's good to be back. >> kimberly: 100%. welcome back. >> dana: your metaphors are on point. >> kimberly: you've been hanging out with brian kilmeade. a little bit of sports analogies there. >> greg: can i exit with one fact. kavanaugh was born in 1965. ted bundy graduated from high school in 1965. i am not saying that kavanaugh is a serial killer but i'm not not saying he's a serial killer. we have no evidence, but we need evidence. >> kimberly: thank you for presenting both sides. >> greg: fair and unbalanced. >> kimberly: unstable as well. juan, what do you say?
2:08 pm
perhaps kavanaugh, barrett. >> juan: you predicted kavanaugh. i was on the air. i thought hardiman was the guy. some people in the white house put pressure on the president because i think kavanaugh is much more connected than hardiman ever is going to be. a woman who served with hardiman on the third circuit. i think it came down to donald mcgahn, white house counsel. i think he and others really are tapped into kavanaugh and he is the republican establishment pick. he is a kennedy clerk, just like gorsuch. the problem for senator mcconnell was there is such an extensive paper trail. it's not just that we don't know much about him, as greg said, but there is so much to be found out because i think somebody said he is a little bit like forrest gump. wherever you look, a big issue, there he was. he was in the camstar
2:09 pm
investigation into president clinton. he was in the bush white house and midst so many controversies. there he is on the d.c. circuit for many years. when he was nominated for the d.c. circuit, i think in '03, there is a 3-year delay in terms of confirmation because people wanted to know more about them. some people said he was a political guy who became a judge. i don't know. i don't want to be unfair to him. you have liberals making the case for him as thoroughly qualified and deserving of the appointment. the difference is, and i think this is something i want to say to dana and greg and the way they postured it, it is anybody that the left was going to oppose. remember that this election, the lift came from the federalist society and heritage. it's not universal. give me some qualified conservative judges to consider. no, these are people who the far right has put a stamp on in terms of abortion. >> jesse: kavanaugh is not qualified, are you saying?
2:10 pm
>> juan: i didn't say that. >> jesse: because he was part of the list. >> juan: when i am saying is these are people who have been prescreened their conservative credentials by far right conservatives. >> kimberly: what far right conservatives? he worked for justice kennedy. he was applauded by george w. bush is an excellent choice. i don't understand what the problem is. you have legal scholars on the liberal side and democrats i think this is someone who is eminently qualified and was a good choice. i don't find him to be far right or fringe whatsoever and i don't see any evidence to substantiate that statement. >> juan: i don't think there is much doubt he is qualified. that's not the point in the politically polarized country where, as everybody here said, basically what you're going to have his five heart rate votes that will control america for generations to come. of course the people say wait a second. i don't want the court to be rubber-stamped. i want a fair hearing.
2:11 pm
i want to know that i'm get a fair hearing. >> jesse: democratic presidents also nominated liberal justices to the supreme court. not just republicans that nominate their side. it happens on both sides, and that's fine, and that's how the game is played. it's interesting to say that the biggest criticism against kavanaugh is that he worked for ken starr. i thought special counsels were beyond reproach and partisanship. you know what i mean. independent prosecutors. they have been calling this guy a reactionary ideologue. he's going to end civilizations as we know it. he lives in the maryland suburbs with his wife ashley. he coaches his daughter's basketball league. >> greg: >> greg: maybe it's a . >> jesse: he served hot meals in his catholic charity. the guy is not a monster. he's a polished gentleman who went to harvard.
2:12 pm
the guy has impeccable credentials and pretty much everybody thinks he's going to be a very, very strong judge. he's got a very long history of decisions and scholarship. i think that's a good thing because then you can really see how he's a solid pick. he's got a great sense of humor. as greg knows anybody with a good sense of humor is brilliant. he's hilarious. you saw that last night. people saying robie wade. he is on record as saying roe v. wade is settled law. and he's going to follow gorsuch on that issue. politically if you think about it, i think schumer can't do anything about it unless some surprise comes up in his paperwork and we don't know if that's going to happen. you are saying the other day mansion, heitkamp, joe donnelly all senate democrats up for reelection. they all voted for gorsuch. i don't see why they are not going to vote for kavanaugh as well. they are spending a lot of money on this pick in a national ad campaign. bottom line, schumer comes up
2:13 pm
small in these moments. he botched the shutdown. i think is going to botch this battle. >> juan: i think manchin has said those pre-existing conditions, something that really concerns him. he says 44% of his state west virginia would be impacted. he wants to know how he deals with that. i think you're going to see a lot of people say let's get the paperwork. let's take the time, noting to russia mitch mcconnell say no, let's get this done before the midterms. >> jesse: 59% of west virginia's want this to happen. >> dana: i want to say juan, you mention this court will rule over america for generation. i think that actually is a fundamental issue here with the court. the court is actually not meant to rule over anybody. the people of america are supposed to rule over themselves. the court has been used by the left is a place to establish long desired policy goals they couldn't get done through the people and the legislatures, congress and the supreme court, all it's supposed to do is say constitutional, not constitutional. that's it. the idea that the court has as
2:14 pm
much power is not correct. >> jesse: can you add more people to the court? >> greg: i would say let's make it 16. >> jesse: it has to be 17. >> kimberly: they have had detailed opposition research for over a year since he had to fill and replace justice scalia's position. everyone has researched him and let it him. they can stall but they cannot put it off. president trump putting america first on blasting nato over defense spending and what is shaping up to be a tense summit. where things stand when we return. still a chance here. it's willingham, edge of the box, willingham shoots... goooooooaaaaaaaallllllll! that...was...magic.

2:19 pm
by the european union. we lost $151 billion last year on trade, and on top of that, we spend at least 70% for nato and frankly it helps them a lot more than it helps us. >> dana: president trump surprising him with his remarks about his upcoming sitdown with russian president vladimir putin. that takes place on monday in finland. >> i have nato. i have the u.k. which is in somewhat turmoil and i have put in. frankly putin may be the easiest of them all. >> dana: juan, president trump trying to stir up some trouble before he goes to nato. he has been effective in getting these countries to pay more but one of the reasons they are paying more is because the threats on their borders are increasing. also this is kind of the first time they mix the issue of nato and trade. do you think it will work? >> juan: the trade thing is not going so well.
2:20 pm
it looks like the chinese are targeting states that are red states to send a message. >> dana: this will be with nato. >> juan: i'm talking about the trade fight in the idea of trade wars because it extends also to the european countries. it impacts even here at home a company like harley-davidson which the president has celebrated previously. what's interesting to me is, you combine these meanings come with along with the nato allies norms with putin. there is so much concern i think among the allies. you had the president of the e.u. saying america, don't treat your allies badly. you don't have to many of them. you stop and say well, what would putin's agenda be? the agenda would be let's divide or split up the nato alliance and then let's have trade wars because again, it's all to his benefit. you stop and think why are we treating our allies this badly? post world war ii, the globe has
2:21 pm
been a peaceful place. >> dana: the american-led global order this been in place has been good. one thing that is happening right now is russia is building up its military capabilities and the border with poland. they are anxious. the president was sort of receptive to the idea of possibly placing permanent troops there in poland. >> jesse: that would be a big step. we are trying to reorient our grand strategy towards the pacific after defeating the russians of russia keeps knocking on the doorstep, we might have to pony some bases there. i think he's trying to modernize nato. we have these lavish trade deals with our allies in europe during the cold war. they helped contain the russians and we protect them and we get fair access to our markets. the cold war is over. we won. he is trying to recalibrate those deals because we are spending $706 billion in our defense budget. our navy protects all of the shipping lanes of the world. our air force keeps the peace. we have bases in germany.
2:22 pm
paying all this money to protect you and you are throwing up these trade barriers, let's even it out. we are competing against the e.u. we are trying to crack open that trade block because they are very powerful. we have all these industries that are competing for market share in jobs and talents. we are just trying to put america first, like francis trying to put france first. >> dana: we have food coming up at the end of the show. we need to keep on time. >> kimberly: [laughs] >> greg: i would hate to cut into the food segment. here's the thing. allies are always our allies. if someone let's say bickering with canada or france, if someone invades canada or france, what are we going to do? we are going to kill the people who invade france or canada because that's what allies do. this other stuff is just bickering amongst the family. we are bickering over trade which is essentially like
2:23 pm
bickering over trade or response about these or commitment in a family. we are fine. you don't argue over commitments unless you already have commitments with people. don't worry, canada. if somebody invades, we will kill them all. conversely, russia and north korea, we don't have that relationship. so when trump says the relationship is somehow clear with russia, what he is saying it's it's easier to understand because it's adversarial, us versus them. also requires more attention sometimes in order to modernize this antiquated adversarial situation. everybody wants to save face, right? that's all it is. >> dana: if he wants to have a good meeting, he will have a good meeting. i am thinking about turkey. i am a little worried about turkey. >> kimberly: they are the wild card. this is president trump with his philosophy that was really quite celebrated and encouraged during the campaign which was america
2:24 pm
first and we are going to equal out the equation. there is going to be reciprocity as a relates to trade our spending. for quite some time, the united states has been subsidizing european countries that have not had the level of military readiness or defense preparedness that united states has continued to value and place as a priority. he is saying listen, you're going to have to be prepared, and some are panicked, to defend yourself. i cannot always be out of our pocket book. like he is trying to do with trade with china, leveled the playing field. engage in diplomacy and reciprocity of paying your fair share because i have to devote resources to the united states and the issues we have. >> dana: hopefully he will think a lot of the nato members in helping us in afghanistan and iraq and counterterrorism. it's a big deal. sieber is a big issue. we are going to get to food but first greg is back from vacation. he is filling us in on his case of the back to work blues.

demeanor. easily deflecting these harsh attacks. i think the same thing is going to happen with kavanaugh. >> kimberly: he's going to be well-prepared and he has excellent peppermint and he's going to be able to withstand the pressure. this is a justice, justice kennedy said he was always there, first thing early, always there late. to be able to put the time and effort in. he is quite studious and i like that. he is going to do a great job. they are going to have the theatrics and do the ringling brothers circus situation regardless of who was going to sit in that chair, let's be honest. >> jesse: i think the main concern is that the judge is going to interpret the constitution, juan, as it's written and not tried to wail away at any sort of preposterou preposterous, you know, creation from their mind. he is going to look at the text of the constitution and you have
2:43 pm
a problem with that. that stops your agenda. >> juan: not my agenda. could be. i don't know. i think you made that up. i am struck by how the people at this table don't want to fight. you don't want any review of brett kavanaugh. you just say put them in. he's our guy. stay came in. you guys on the left, stop it. even though it was down to four people and it was a list prepared by the hard right. >> dana: do you really think the federalist society is hard right? >> juan: yes. >> dana: i don't. when i was a spokesperson for john roberts when he was nominated, there was a whole huge thing about whether he was a member of the federalist society. then you realize basically it's a bunch of nerdy republican lawyers getting together. >> juan: they have a clear agenda and the clear agenda is -- >> dana: interpret the constitution. >> juan: now, there agenda is to support judges would overturn liberal policy.
2:44 pm
the thing i think you are missing is that kavanaugh is a guy who was bent on record with tremendous deference for executive power. if president trump gets indicted or president trump is somehow question about whether he has to testify and ends up before the supreme court, may be donald mcgahn, the white house counsel is counting on the idea come up with this guy up there and he's always going to be on our side when the hard questions, about the president and the mueller investigation. >> kimberly: that is not the standard. he is supposed to apply the law without any kind of influence. >> juan: but we know how he thinks. >> kimberly: you are referring to one esoteric law review article that was written years and years ago. perhaps the law needs to be changed... with respect to any kind of indictment of a sitting united states president in times of crisis that might affect national security or the economy

>> juan: an incredible ending to a story that's captivated the world. all 12 members of a boys soccer team and their coach have been rescued from a flooded cave in thailand after being trapped there for more than two weeks. the daring, treacherous three day mission to save the group pulled off by tying navy seals in an international team of divers. president trump is braving the effort and the bravery of the rescue crews on twitter. meanwhile, the children and their coach or not being treated at a hospital nearby. i will tell you what strikes me. they had to give the boys anxiety medication to get them out of there. they had to calm them down in order to rescue them.
2:50 pm
i can't imagine that you give somebody something to lower their temperature and their heart rate as they're being rescued. >> kimberly: i think it was smart for them to do that because the level of anxiety that the children felt, especially in the physical and emotional strain of being held captive for that time, you don't want anything to impede a rescue effort where someone panics and then a child panics and could drag somebody under. two people. that's the type of thing that happens in a rescue operation. you want to get somebody as calm as possible. they are children. they have been sleep deprived, malnourished, haven't had a lot of oxygen. god bless the thai navy seal who sacrificed his life to try to make this possible. there was u.s. special operations involved in this mission as well. everybody came together incredibly and stayed focused on what seemed to be impossible. >> juan: jesse, a happy ending to this story, both the boys are

still not back with their families. being held in quarantine. some have lung infections from breathing the air in the cave. it will be seven days until they see their parents. >> jesse: i'm sure they are going to need a lot of medical attention. i can't believe this happen. it was generous of greg to lend these kids anxiety medication. we know it works on him. glad it works on the kids. i will say, and i am never wrong. i haven't been wrong in a long time but i was wrong about this. i do not think these kids were going to be rescued. we were doing a segment last week and we were saying that the odds of the rescue were so high and we were almost just praying and getting tearful about it a little bit in the commercial break and the fact that they were able to do this. kimberly said miracles can happen. this was an absolute miracle. they compared this to hiking mount everest with no guide underwater. look what happened. >> kimberly: i believe. you never give up.

>> dana: we have little time but i would say the will to survive is amazing but also human ingenuity, that humans have been able to figure out the technology and we have the will to survive like that is amazing. >> juan: they can't even feed them. they can't give them solid food. i'm amazed they survived. >> greg: i could not last -- you know when the elevator at fox news gets stuck for a minute, i freaked out. i have stuff with me at all times. the fact that these kids lasted that entire time in an enclosed space is amazing. it's probably the resiliency of being a kid. you don't think about stuff as much and maybe they can be seen as an adventure but i wouldn't have lasted 12 minutes. i would have resorted to cannibalism. >> juan: what do you carry with you at all times? >> greg: none of your business. it is prescription.
