tv Fox News Night With Shannon Bream FOX News October 9, 2018 8:00pm-9:00pm PDT
republican party. and it's a great yearly gift for christmas. all of our friends in florida, as hurricane michael bears down on you, please follow the above. know that we are with you in our thoughts and in our prayers, and that is all we have tonight. shannon bream and the "fox news @ night" team have this for you and a lot more. >> shannon: and now, all my christmas shopping is done, laura. >> laura: take care. >> shannon: we begin with a fox news alert. narrowing the list for the replacement for nikki haley. it just a handful now in the running. the president rallies the supporters in iowa. and our march to the midterms. the rnc chair joins us life. and later, hurricane michael barricading towards the florida panhandle. we've got the very latest. hello, and welcome to "fox news @ night." i'm shannon bream in washington.
we begin with the surprising resignation of the u.s. ambassador to the u.n., nikki haley, and humane replacer. here is ed henry. >> when you think of all of the leaks that have mistreated at president trump, this one did not get out until the last minute. only they knew about it and kept it to themselves. so there is still a bit of a mystery about why now. she has been going into the u.n. with body armor everyday, calling up china, russia, iran. and given her role handling these hot spots, her exit surprise many. usually big personnel announcements like this are held until after the midterms. it allows the dash saying this is more chaos. i am deeply concerned about the leadership vacuum. she leaves and the national security impact of her departure at this time, continued disarray for this administration.
the president countered that haley had told him months ago she wanted a breather after a long tenure. jumping right into this post. he countered with an interesting possible replacement. >> now, the united states is respected. countries may not like what we do, but they respect what we do. >> i think ivanka would be incredible. i would pick her because it would be nepotism. i am not sure that there is anybody more confident in the world, but that's okay. >> that sounded like an endorsement for his daughter, but she tweeted quickly that she has no interest. the president told reporters he has other candidates he is looking at. former deputy national security advisor dena powell and ric grenell, who won praise for getting tough on iran. as for what is next for hailey, she says she is not going to run for any office in 2020, present or senate, and lindsey graham says that he has no interest in the trunk cabinet.
there is one scenario floating around where if she becomes attorney general, that seat is open again. yes, in her home state. >> she has of course come out, telling the president and a telling the public that she has no intention of running in 2020, but let's be honest with ourselves. situations can change, people can be called upon to step up. >> now, haley, who was a candidate dominic critic of trump, hey, the door is open. it's never too early, shannon. >> shannon: apparently not. i mean, you could be running for president. i could be. who knows? >> probably not. >> shannon: all right, the newest of supreme court justice, brett kavanaugh, diving straight in, looking very easy, asking several questions during his first round of arguments. >> shannon, hard to believe that
judge cavanaugh's fate was still very much in question. today, he took his seat on the supreme court, and for the first time, you could actually see five solidly conservative justices on the high court. it is a moment that democrats have dreaded and republicans have dreamed of for decades. >> without consent, we will not forget. >> just a sprinkling of protesters outside. wishing the new justice a long and happy career in our common calling. but then it was all business. justice kavanaugh dived into his new job by asking about prison sentences for repeat offenders. he promised to put the bitterness of his confirmation battle behind it. >> every american can be assured that i will be an independent and impartial justice, devoted to equal justice under law. although the senate confirmation process tested me as it has
tested others, it did not change me. >> about the battle rages on on capitol hill. today, tom cotton said he strongly suspects that senate minority leader chuck schumer was behind christine blasey-ford's explosive letter. >> i believe this. >> the staff called the accusations "a fairy tale." but they are continuing to call for an investigation as to how that letter got out. in the meantime, justice kavanaugh will be back in the courtroom tomorrow to hear two other cases, one involving the detention of illegal immigrants, specifically which undocumented immigrants can be detained. the second case about navy sailors hoping to uncover damages for being exposed to asbestos. >> and he will be assisted by his forelock works. they are all women. it is the first time that that has happened.
an interesting side note, given the side note in which cabinet was confirmed. >> shannon: absolutely. all right, when they go low, we go high. hillary clinton, now rejecting calls for a return to civility in american politics. >> high mike, shannon. during the interview with cnn, hillary clinton rewound the clock 25 years, saying that so long republicans have been lying about her. she then highlighted her examples of the g.o.p. incivility, like the election, even the swearing-in ceremony for justice brett kavanaugh. watch this. >> what was done last night in the white house was a political rally. it further undermines the image and integrity of the court. and that troubles me greatly. it saddens me. >> she went on to accuse senate majority leader mitch mcconnell and president trump
of demeaning the confirmation process and attacked dr. christine blasey-ford and all women who were speaking out. then she went after the republican party as a whole. here it again. >> you cannot be civil with a political party that wants to destroy what you stand for, what you care about. that's why i believe if we are fortunate enough to win back the house and/or senate, that is one civility can start again. >> her civility comments clearly struck a chord with bill cassidy, who tweeted "at a time when republicans are being shot, stabbed, beaten, mailed powder, run out of restaurants, and sent death threats, hillary clinton urges democrats to be even more uncivil? what an irresponsible statement every democrat should denounce." and steve's colleagues nearly died after being shot by a registered democrat responded by writing simply "seriously,
hillary?" but clinton doubled down, saying that bill clinton thinks democrats have to be tougher. and stand up to the bullying and intimidation. today, the president was asked about the clinton interview. >> i guess that's why she lost. she doesn't get it. she never did. i knew that a long time ago. hillary never got it. that's why she lost. >> hillary clinton was also asked about impeaching the president. she said "that will be left for others to decide." shannon. >> shannon: all right, thank you very much. so incivility reaching a fever pitch in some places across the nation. rand paul worried that they heated political rhetoric could turn deadly. he was attacked last year, and his wife told us right here on the show last week that she now sleeps with a loaded gun by her bed. let's bring in the panel, former senior advisor.
a host of "the next revolution" right here on fox news. radio host, chris plans. welcome to all of you. we heard a little bit of what the former secretary had to play. how she was reacting to the cavanaugh swearing-in ceremony at the white house. >> what was done last night in the white house was a political rally. it further undermined to the image and integrity of the cour court. and that troubles me greatly. it saddens me because our judicial system has been viewed as one of the main pillars of our constitutional government. >> shannon: four may be different reason, a lot of people are worried about the confirmation process and what it has done to the way that people view the court know. >> can i just start by saying that watching the interview reminded me of how happy i am that hillary clinton didn't become president of the united states. she is still out there being divisive, trying to undermine this administration. and the government and of the
supreme court and the senate, other than that, i think she's doing great work for the countr country. the process was obviously very divisive because the democrats decided they were going to pull out all the stops and try to destroy brett kavanaugh and his career and his life and make sure that he didn't get on the court. with the tactics that they use and the methods that they use, i think they've damaged the supreme court. the senate, the process, our government, the city, the country. i think they've done a lot of damage. >> shannon: do you want to take a swing at that? [laughs] let's not get -- >> there is a door over there. >> shannon: but she did talk about the fact that no more civility until democrats take back the house and senate. the only thing the republicans understand at this point is power. what do you make of that? >> two things.
first, i don't think donald trump needs any help dividing the country. a ten minute interview from overseas is not really the reason that there is a fever pitch about what is going on. i think she's making a valid point. this isn't her first rodeo. and she knows that it's naive to unilaterally disarm or unilaterally be civil. it is what the republican party or really the party of power always wants you to do. they want you to feel like everything you're doing is wrong, just to sit there so we can continue being the majority. not exactly sure what anyone is pointing to that is a problem. >> shannon: well, steve. >> she is actually making a pretty pathetic spectacle of herself. what she is doing there is pandering to the angry mob, the extremists in her party. strong leader stand up to the extremes in their party, they challenge them, and they move the party towards the mainstream. that is actually what her husband did to his credit, and that's why he was successful.
the fact that she can't do that and she is pandering to these activists who are filled with rage and hate, and it's not just people on the french. this is democratic senators, members of congress going out there, inciting people to harass others. >> taking away cheese plates at restaurants? >> that's harassment. >> shannon: we saw that she -- >> shooting members of congress and baseball fields. running people over in portland yesterday. >> that wasn't members of congress doing that or inciting that. that is nothing to do with actual republican party. this is the democrats, the establishment of people. she is supporting its when she should be challenging it. if she was a proper leader, but she's not, she's a panderer. she's weak. >> i don't know it we are talking about. >> they have been encouraging all kinds of miscreant behavior. we have been getting that miscreant behavior.
because they do not like the job that -- >> i know you're half-joking. >> you are making it sound like it is 2% -- >> we should have a civilized discussion -- >> one month from now -- >> as you said before -- >> shannon: let's go to another topic because we have no time left. ambassador haley is stepping down, going to resign. she said it has been long in the works, she end of the present have talked about it. not everyone is buying that, and a lot of people are skeptical. the announcement that she has resigned, on another side of the chaotic foreign policy. deeply concerned. the impact of her departure at this time of continued disarray. >> how pompous. >> shannon: how do you really feel? >> he is basically a totally corrupt member of congress.
i think there is a lot more to come out on him, so for him to pontificate about anything -- >> the truth is, the present is exerting real leadership by shifting away from the failed ps and republican administrations on trade, on the middle east, he is really running foreign polic policy. >> well, chaos comes from the head. it doesn't make a difference of nikki haley is there or ivanka trump. personally, i think there has got to be a back story here, just the way that it unfolded. she was one of my top three suspects were the the anonymous author. >> shannon: she said it wasn't her. >> this has been an orderly process, it was done in a thoughtful and intelligent way. the president has already had conversations about taking her place. she was brought to the white house for a nice event today, and to call it chaos is just more fake news.
>> shannon: these three are going to have a paper review, and that is going to cost you extra. >> somebody has got to walk me out of here. >> shannon: thank you all. >> thanks, shannon. >> shannon: hurricane michael has been upgraded to a powerful category three storm. expected to strengthen even more mindful as it hits the florida panhandle. let's get the latest. high mika, adam. >> this is looking more and more like a real monster storm, continuing to get closer. you are looking at winds of 127. it becomes a category four at 127. either way, it is going to pack a big punch. everything you're looking at here highlighted and the red. that is a hurricane watch. pensacola, stretching through appalachia and portions outside of that are going to see at least some impact from that. that is where the strongest
winds are going to hit. here we are putting this into motion. we do see currently, it does jump this up right near a category four. will it get there, we don't know. likely making landfall. we are looking at maybe noon to 1:00 time frame. still a little bit of time for this to move a little bit, but landfall will be become a reality. that is when winds are at the absolute strongest. this model is still suggesting 1:00 tomorrow around that time when we see landfall. otherwise, it is about the wind feels that is going to stretch from tallahassee over into portions of alabama. you are getting that big. really, the most extreme winds are going to be there right at the heart of this around lunchtime. the other story with the scum of the initial wind, and the storm surge, especially their, spots
getting up to 8-12 feet of storm surge. that is going to put some buildings underwater. this is going to be a big storm and and a big story tomorrow. >> shannon: that is where most of my family lives. we will be keeping a close eye on it. one midterm motivator, the newest of supreme court justice, brett kavanaugh. >> i want to thank my republican senators for refusing to back down in the face of the democrats shameful campaign. >> shannon: so who was more fired up? republicans or democrats? rnc chair ronald mcdaniel joins us live next. that's why ss dr. scholl's orthotics. they relieve pain and give her the comfort to move more so she can keep up with all of her best friends. dr. scholl's. born to move.
the new capital one savor card. earn 4% cash back on dining and 4% on entertainment. now when you go out, you cash in. what's in your wallet? just a second, we also have the mendez mediation. brian is going to take the lead just follow his- hello. uh, no i need it right now. yeah... success is a numbers game. and you're not going to win
they are super angry that the senate got this guy onto the bench or super angry about how he was treated. so what do you think it? >> the democrats have had a lot of energy since the election. they want the power back. opposition is uniting. we have seen in midterms, that the party in power often loses seats. so we have seen that. our voters haven't been paying as much attention, they are feeling good, the economy is doing well. this kavanaugh battle has brought home to them what's at stake. because they have seen the chaos, the disruption. the dangerous path. now they are recognizing the results that have come out of the republican leadership. we have to get out there and vote because we don't want to go where the democrats are taking us. >> shannon: let me ask you this. american bridge, 21st century, one of the fund-raising emails that they sent out. trump's message is clear, they
don't care about sexual assault against women, they don't believe women, into the of reckoning is coming for republicans. we all know that women are key voters, especially in suburban areas. they are going to be very important. how do you respond to you that? >> this is what democrats do. they try to divide our country. they try to incite anger. that is just same to mike shameful. i am a woman. i am a mother of a 15-year-old daughter. please don't go there. but that is where they are goin going. it is to destroy, distract, let's make women so angry. women are smarter than that. we are delivering results right now from our president. 3.7% unemployment, the lowest in history for african-american and hispanics. a 65 year low for women. we are a party that is making lives better for women across this country. it democrats will continue the destruction, and we are going to youth continue to get results. >> shannon: "the washington post" talks
about the fact that due to all lot of talk that they are obstructionist, they have a small mentality. an angry mob, republicans work to recast them as out of control anarchist. the term, many of the issues that they had thought to run on. from tax cuts, it has not been enough to counter an electrifying democratic electorate. we talked about the enthusiasm gap. >> our enthusiasm is there. on all of these battleground congressional districts, it has certainly lifted us at the rnc, they are not offering anything except for resist and abstract. we are offering higher wages, 4 million new jobs, record low unemployment spewed so many good things are happening. it is a very -- democrats want to make it all about division and scare tactics.
we are here saying vote for our policies because we are going to make it your life better. >> shannon: 's one of the things that keep showing up, something people are most concerned about, health care. he had democrats say that republicans are doing anything on that front. >> you have for the president. he says first of all, we are going to protect pre-existing conditions. that medicare for all that they don't know how to pay for actually can hurt seniors in the long run. if you do that and put everybody in the system, the people paying and are going to get less quality health care. they are promising the moon, not talking about how they're going to pay for it, we don't believe there scare tactics. of course we are going to pre-existing conditions. we are countering it very well. >> shannon: we will see 20 days from now. thanks for stopping in. all right, capping off of a whirlwind of day, the president is in iowa. regarding a very popular thing out there. as in all.
kevin corke is live to tell us more. hi, kevin. >> always great to be with you, shannon. you probably know this. i was actually the nations largest producer of corn and ethanol. the president has been announcing that it is seem to be available across the country nationwide. well, that was certainly music to the ears of a great many folks. and another make america great rally. a lot of nebraskans there. it's all there to hear the president talk about the virtues of additional field choices for americans. they heard this pitch that e-15 could ultimately be our real boom to their economies. >> you've got a lot of farmers involved, right? the power of e-15 to fuel our
country all year long. >> so the epa begins review to allow for year-round use, e15. it could take use next summer. increased biofuel production in this country. they think that will be good for the economy. now for those of you who are curious, e15 has already been approved for the use of cars in 2001, and after, but some of the president's base are none too happy about them is because they are convinced e15 could be the loss of manufacturing jobs, or maybe even worse. a bipartisan group of 20 u.s. senators urge the president's last week to reject the sale of year-round e15. arguing it will drive up the cost of fuel, increase pollution, and the damage millions of cars. i feel like it is also important to point this out. a lot of people here really love the idea behind e15, but there are also a lot of lawmakers who are up for reelection in about a
month. they were here as well at the rally, and they can attest this idea of the better economy in iowa, nebraska, with the president's stamp of approval. they think that will help women about four weeks. shannon. >> shannon: all right, thank you very much. we just heard of rhonda mcdaniel play of the g.o.p. enthusiasm heading into the midterms. let's dig into that a little bit more. the washington says tonight this is not what the backlash looks like. the most enthusiastic voters are actually not the ones who are dissenting. a joining now, editor of -- we are going to talk about one of these really interesting things. can we talk about nevada? >> we can talk about anything you want. >> shannon: this is a really tight race. it is a state that hillary clinton won. >> by whisker. this is the toughest race for
republicans. this is dean heller in nevada. there is new pulling out from "the new york times." basically says heller is in the lead, but he is under 50. and when you are a month away and you are under 50, that is not good. he's got the edge, but jackie rosen, the democratic congresswoman, is an upright position, so they can both be happy about where they are. what we don't know yet, what you were just talking with the chairwoman about, where does this energy go? how does this play out? do we see what "the washington post" is talking about? shown very clearly. if there was republican backlash, there is a backlash to the backlash. at the democrats are surging back into the space, they are still enjoying these significant advantages, and their intensity remains high, as do the republicans. >> shannon: let's talk about specifically here in nevada.
heller -- jackie rosen does better with women and latinos. which of these groups do you think will be more critical? >> when you talk about the gender gap, it goes both ways. when people talk about the gender gap, they are talking about republicans doing well with women. democrats do poorly with men. jackie rosen is doing about as poorly with men as heller is doing with women. we have a real battle of the sexes race out there. at the cabin, the movement is fitting perfectly into this. the struggle comes down to this. i'm rosen's district, the suburbs south of las vegas. that is the real battle ground out there. whereas heller has to count on the rest of the state, which is traditionally predominantly republican, to come in for him. it is going to be a heck of a tussle. it is a race that has flown under the radar.
dean heller has done a pretty remarkable job. he looks like dead meat for a while. he has done a pretty good job staying in this fight and being in a competitive position so close to the end. >> shannon: obviously, it is huge that investor haley is stepping down. you had some other names to watch. people that are potentially on their way out too. i mean, the rumors around here. some are not hard to predict. >> it is normal after midterms to have people leave. that's a reasonable period of service, so basically the rule is you can get out at the anniversary of the inauguration, and you can say i served a year, i did my part. that is sort of -- after one year, okay. but if you stay past essentially the first of february, you've got to stay on till after the midterms are over. now, we are going to see surprises and all kinds of stuff go on. james mattis is always the big question. we don't know what is going to
go on. that is the big want to consider into the big want to watch. >> shannon: i think we all know, including jeff sessions, he is a short term. he says that he serves, he is ready to stay or go. >> he has done huge service for him. >> shannon: he has accomplished many things that the president has asked him for. chris stirewalt, thank you. the florida panhandle, we are going to take you live after the break. and it due to new developments in the case of the missing saudi journalist, how the u.s. is now getting involved. stick with us. otezla. otezla is not a cream. it's a pill that treats moderate to severe plaque psoriasis differently. with otezla,75% clearer skin is achievable. don't use if you're allergic to otezla. it may cause severe diarrhea, nausea, or vomiting. otezla is associated with an increased risk of depression. tell your doctor if you have a history of depression or suicidal thoughts, or if these feelings develop. some people taking otezla reported weight loss.
your doctor should monitor your weight and may stop treatment. upper respiratory tract infection and headache may occur. tell your doctor about your medicines and if you're pregnant or planning to be. otezla. show more of you. (seriously, that's what we call tit. officially.all a huge drag. and we covered it. talk to farmers. we know a thing or two because we've seen a thing or two. ♪ we are farmers. bum-pa-dum, bum-bum-bum-bum ♪
now hurricane michael is up to 125-mile-per-hour winds. a five more miles per hour, and it is category four. the experts do expect that to happen overnight. make landfall as a category four storm. plywood is off, and a lot of the buildings and houses all along the florida panhandle, but interestingly enough, they are less concerned than they perhaps would have been, or they have left already have before things escalated to a category four. you can see that winds have definitely been picking up. getting 12 inches of rain, which can be expected. there is some concern amongst emergency operations leaders that other people who should have evacuated enough. that is panama city, says that traffic outbound should have been a lot heavier than it was. 75% of this county is in an evacuation zone.
60-65% left, but a lot of people who did stay. there were tens of thousands of people who did evacuated, and that meant long lines of cars and trucks at gas stations, a lot of pumps frequently running out of gas. there was certainly a heavier outbound traffic heading north, east, and west from the coastline last night at 7:00. in florida state university up in tallahassee, there is no class all the way until next week. a lot of parents came in, bringing their students out of there. empty store shelves. that is the norm at every grocery store and hardware store all the way from pensacola right down here to appalachia and beyond. and the governor has been touring the state all day long, county by county. his emergency operations center is very concerned about the
storm. listen. >> this storm is deadly. do not take a chance. think about the destruction we have seen before with storms like hurricane irma. the panhandle and big ben will likely see winds like 110 miles per hour. think about that. 110 miles per hour. right here, we could see absolute devastation. >> and some of the longest lines of cars that we saw were at bank atms come up to 20 or 30 cars lined up because in the days after a hurricane, a lot of power outages are expected. that means no credit cards. cash will be king. shannon. >> shannon: be safe down there, you and the crew. thank you. the investigation into the missing journalist intensifies tonight. saudi arabia giving turkish officials permission to use its consulate in istanbul. how the u.s. is also getting involved. >> the disappearance of a saudi
journalist has the attention of the present. >> he says that he will speak about her, last seen entering the conflict in istanbul. the trump administration has been reluctant to pressure or criticize them. >> are you assuming that taking time to put out a statement means that they have not been doing anything? is that your assumption? >> they were engaged at the highest level and also at the working level in having conversations with the government officials, and i will leave it at that. jamal khashoggi was a critic of the government. he says the saudi government is cooperating, allowing them to examine buildings in istanbul, where jamal khashoggi was last seen. "the washington post" published a surveillance video of khashoggi walking last week. >> one way or another, he was taken somewhere else. we want more details.
those evidence and a detail should be presented. we want to see jamal. >> they say that the officials entered just before his disappearance. he picked up papers that would allow him to marry his turkish fiance. the saudi government should prove that khashoggi left the council. "i assure you that the reports that suggest khashoggi went missing they are or that he has been detained or killed are absolutely false and baseless." "the washington post" has just released a statement, saying there is no evidence jamal khashoggi ever left to the saudi consulate, and they called again for answers about his whereabouts. the delays and silence are not available. we demanded to know the truth. >> shannon: we will stay on that story. more news next.

melania. the endless media's assault on western civilization and a trump. due to a.m., the editor of "the wall street journal." great to have both of you with us tonight. so let's talk a little bit about the column that you wrote that appeared there. talked about a number of public figures that the left has not been sensitive about attacking in the last few days. >> yes, columbus in particular, his day is sort of dropping out of fashion. people want to talk about the indigenous peoples day. not recognizing columbus. i think it's really an injustice. certainly columbus had his phone's, but i think you have to give him credit for the creation of america, which i think objectively, we should say is the best thing to happen to the world and at least the last thousand years. >> shannon: you know, a lot of these conversations about churchill or columbus or anyone else, you know that many historic figures have accomplish
good things, they are flawed human beings. they had great misgivings or positions or took action or didn't take action that people think they should have taken. the mayor of somerville massachusetts said this. "it is our relatives, oversimplified issue. it is a lot like the confederate flag. makes them feel good that there is an unofficial holiday that is not about us. we are proud of our heritage, yet the specifics run so deep with human suffering, that we need to shift our pride elsewhere." morgan. >> that's all a lot. >> shannon: it is. >> listen, all of these people that we are talking about, whether it is columbus, churchill, abraham lincoln, everyone is a product of their time in which they live, and i think we have to judge people based on the accomplishments of their time. did they stand the test of time? did they stand the scrutiny of whatever issue they were dealing
within that time? when you like a churchill, for example. he almost single-handedly, with the help of americans and lots of other people, through pure grit, scott the allies on board to stop germany from wiping out almost an entire race of people, the jewish people. so when we start looking at all of these historical figures, it is easy to nitpick them, but i think what we should be teaching our children, the lesson that we should all be learning as americans and citizens, what type of humanity, what type of courage do these individual show? what can we take from these lessons? i think that the entire scum of the entirety of western europe has to think churchill for what he did and during the time. the fact that people are not criticizing him, some views that he had that were probably not fantastic at the time, missing the much larger point. >> shannon: i want to get a quick reaction from both of you too. the first lady, "the new york times" talking
about one of her outfits worn on her african trip, to some, especially those who study african history, her fashion choice was a big ever on the global stage. wearing something so closely associated with the expectation of africans. let's start with you. >> they are talking about that white helmet she is wearing, which about a decade ago, "the new york times" wrote a piece about how it was part of this sort of timeless ensemble that never goes out of style. but now, since melania trump is wearing it, it's an awful symbol of european colonial rule, and some great affronted to african africans. it didn't quote any of the kenyans who were there as being offended. it instead quoted academics at u.s. universities. more concerned about 241. >> shannon: morgan, two seconds. finish this out. >> i like the outfit. i think she looks amazing.
i was in kenya recently, and i'm sure they love having the first lady there. >> shannon: we love having both of you. thank you so much. >> thanks, shannon. >> shannon: more about antifa taking over some streets in portland. more on that next. i think we can do better. change is hard. try to keep an open mind. come on, dad. this is for me, son? principal. we can help you plan for that.
