>> greg: trey in couple afghanistan. again, remind you earlier today the secretary of state said he is very hopeful that those will get out particularly the hundred or so americans, the number has never really changed will be among the first to get the chance. we'll see. that will do it for us. here comes the five. ♪♪ >> hello everyone i'm dana perino along with katie, jessica, jesse watters and bryan 5:00 in new york city. this is the five. another bruising day before congress for secretary state antony blinken the senate panel drilling him for answers about the botched withdraw from afghanistan because so far the biden administration refused to say it did anything wrong, republicans not mincing words. >> you won't.
the biden administration caused this disaster. >> this is a complete debacle. >> we had every reason to believe and to plan for the rapid collapse of the afgan military and the of a began government. >> president biden has described the evacuation from afghanistan as an extraordinary success. this has to be the lie of the 21st century. >> things got really heated when senator ted cruz pressured whether the officials gave the taliban the names of american citizens during the chaotic evacuation. >> did the state department give the taliban a list or multiple lists of americans and/or afgans that we wanted out? >> those reports and the idea that we would do anything to endanger our citizens or anyone else at a time when we're trying to save their lives is flat-out wrong. in limited instances where we were seeking to get a bus or a group of people through a check point, we gave a manifest to the
people at the check point to demonstrate that those people were expected -- >> roughly how many names were on the list you gave? >> doesn't matter because they -- >> dozens? hundreds? thousands. give us a magnitude. >> this happened in -- >> it's your testimony it wasn't hundreds, did you give them thousands? >> no, absolutely not. >> dana: one of thehe things senator ron johnson said to blinken is there's frustration that it feels the administration is detached from the situation >> jesse: he did an okay job but the republicans were focused way too much on sound bites that they can push out to donors and on social media. this hearing needs to be about establishing a pattern of facts, a time line, and getting direct testimony on the record. when did you know, and what did you know and when did you know it? and then you can present that evidence to the american people, and that's how you get to the
truth and accountability. kabul did not fall in 11 days, dana. that is a lie. it took months for the afgan army to desert and surrender. the taliban takeover came after three months. biden was briefed by the intelligence agencies, state department cables went out, embassy cables went out. biden knew in july that the taliban was taking over because he got on the phone call with the afgan president and said lie for me. make sure it looks better on the ground so i get help politically and then maybe i'll give you a little more air support. so the lies cost lives, and we need to know the facts. so al kade a's back in afghanistan and we have dead marines and we have a huge technology transfer to the chinese military which we're going to have to deal with in the pacific and now we're importing all these child brides. we're bringing in thousands of afgan men who married 12 years old, crews got into that, where will they live dana?
in america they're called child molesters. they're not going to live in antony blinken's neighborhood so what do we do with them? if this was a republican president he'd already have impeachment hearings. they go after these hearings like litigateers in a homicide trial. republicans act like it's debate club. no. we want antses, we deserve answers and we're not going to get it if you beat around the bush. >> many times these hearings feel performative not productive. on the house side they had 3-5 minutes and on the senate side they have seven so there's benefits i guess to being a senator. but there was something from senator bob menendez in terms of his frustration as the oversight chairman. watch. >> the execution of the u.s. withdraw was clearly and fatally flawed. this committee expects to receive a full explanation of the administration's decisions on afghanistan since coming into office last january. there has to be accountability. >> i want to get your take on
something. so lloyd austin would not testify today, secretary of defense. they said he's going to be testifying in front of another committee later this month. there's some frustration from people who follow this that this is just all being done in a piecemeal way and they would like to have like the 9/11 commission. is that something the democrats would be willing to do. >> i actually do think it's something democrats would be willing to do. bob menendez is a strong biden supporter. this is someone, he backed biden in 2016 when hillary ended up being the nominee and his words were as forceful as ted cruz's or ron johnson and yesterday we saw it from key figures in the democratic house like karen bass. and i think that it is going to continue. i do think on an optics level it made a big difference that secretary blinken was in person today. not that it was his fault for not going yesterday, was the rules that you could zoom in. there was even the congressman who was in his closet who did it. but you should be there. this is a big deal and will be as leon panetta said it.
a huge moment in his time as secretary of state, for better or for worse and i did like the dynamics better in person. it needs to be treated with respect especially since we lost american lives, 13, and 18 wounded. but it felt like a bipartisan shellacking to me. it felt like yesterday was longer time limits. and i think that that's something that the biden administration is prepared for. they know what the polling looks like on this and they're going to show up and they're going to take it. >> dana: katie one of the things that frustrated some of the people working behind the scenes, these private groups working with veterans who are trying the on get there, interpreters and their families out, was when antony blinken said, every one of the people, and i guess he was talking about the americans that are left behind and the green card holders, has been assigned a case worker. >> right. >> dana: case manager and they have a team of case managers and one of the young women i talked to said that can't be true. she said if it is true then all
these messages i'm getting are people who just can't get anybody to return their calls at the state department. >> the state department has kind of tried to take credit for the private group and organizations that have been able to get people out when the government has failed to do so. and when the secretary of state was asked if the state department, you know, didn't allow certain flights to take off, if they were denying people access to the airport, the answer from the secretary of state was no, when we know from talking to a number of people and from co-ersing that they were denying flights taking off, they were denying people coming into the airport and they were telling people to come to the airport when they couldn't get there because the taliban wasn't letting them through, for weeks on end. the bipartisan nature of this i thought was interesting, and based on the idea that when you listen to each of them speak today, and this happened a lot yesterday in the house, every single senator and congressman has a story linked to trying to getting somebody out of afghanistan. and it is, you know, the job of congressional offices and offices of the senate to help
get people home, but it really is the state department's job. and for the administration up to this point to keep saying that this was a successful airlift, it was a successful evacuation, when you have senators and congressmen still getting phone calls from americans and sivs still stuck? afghanistan that makes it closer and the work they're doing. >> dana: one other piece from senator ted cruz if you pull that up because brian this is one of the questions americans are going to have. excuse me, it's rand paul. $64 billion? that's possibly going to be going to the he-to afghanistan. and i'm wondering, does that pass through the afgan government? here's senator rand paul. >> this week, you've now released $64 million in aid to afghanistan. don't we have some prohibition to giving aid and comfort to the enemy? do we really -- are we really naive enough to believe we're going to continue sending charity to afghanistan and they're not going to interrupt it. i think that's a foolish notion.
could you pledge today without equivocation that the biden administration will not release any of that money to the taliban. >> absent the taliban making good on the commitments and expectations of the international community that i've outlined previously. that's correct. >> maybe we could deduct a fee for the weapons they took. >> any thoughts on that or anything else. >> 64 million is part of the 1.2 billion we promised for international aid. turns out 18 million afgans depend on the government to for their food and clothing. congratulations taliban you have a country to run, hot just people to bee helped, you have to do other stuff and they want aid. and they also say thank you very much but can we have more. i don't see why we give them anything but you go ahead, you want more. the big thing was over the last few days is it's trump's fall fault. it was trump's deal we have no choice. so the guy undoing everything president trump does, and i think joe biden takes great pride in it, everything trump did he's undone. when it comes to taliban, this
is iron clad, this is the deal trump had. it's six pages, my health club contract is harder to get out of than this. it is generic as it gets anyone can get out of this. you almost went to law school, you did you were at the bottom of your screes. class. so i texted mike pompeo, and he had an important job. he said we would only have left once all conditions were met. we didn't plan for chaos because we wouldn't have had it. we had constant deterrent. we would hit them as soon as they broke the agreement. and the butcher said if you any of these promises we will find you and kill you like coal mainy. that's why he called at the edge of kabul and said do you want to take it or do you want me to take it and general mckenzie said why don't you take it i'll just take the airport. can we say that's one of the
stupidist responses to the taliban, and there's been a lot. i cannot be more frustrated because not what democrat what lieberman did to senator bush, they questioned war decisions, they forgot about party. nobody forgot what party they were in today on the democratic side. even though menendez did say we're going to find out about that, but there was more kissing his butt than calling him out. >> he called it an abject failure and in your health club thing does it also say we're going to release 5,000 tal bans for a thousand afgans. >> 5,000 to 1,000, a bad idea. absolutely a bad idea. but that does not mean you can't break it, push it back and undo it because it's not in america's interest. >> trump isn't president anymore. joe biden is. >> big responsibility. >> it's september. we're still deciding that? just kidding >> ahead decision today in california, gavin newsome fighting for his political life
♪♪ >> it's decision today in california to determine if governor gavin newsom will keep his job. the polls close in a few hours and democrats are pulling out all the stops. unbelievable what happened the final few weeks. president biden trying to make the recall all about trump instead of newsome's job performance.
>> all of you know in the last year i got run against the real donald trump. this year, this year, leading republican running for governor is the closest thing to a trump clone that i've ever seen in your state. you either keep gavin newsom as your governor, or you'll get donald trump. >> all right, that was inspiring. newsome continued to push race based attacks against leading republican candidate larry elder. >> the issue of diversity, pluralism. the issue that defines so much of our politics, that's all on the ballot tomorrow night. racial justice is on the ballot tomorrow night. >> brian:. >> brian: man he's looked nervous unsure of himself throughout the recall. he's called out the president, the vice-president, the speaker of the house, senator elizabeth
warren and raised $70 million. does that show they're nervous or is that democrats saying we're going to win big and we all want credit for it. >> dana: five, six weeks ago i think they were very nervous especially as larry elder started picking up speed. he already has state wide name id, which is hard to get. but because larry elder had it and he's very popular and he was talking about the issues. he didn't talk about donald trump or biden or kamala harris. he was talking about homelessness, crime, education, and the economy. and he was worried that people in california were wanting to leave. and anytime that i saw gavin newsom get out there and try to campaign, one, he didn't seem authentic, he was kind of very angry didn't seem like him, he wasn't talking about the issues and they so badly want to run against donald trump that ace little bit bit of a tell for the 2020 midterms. the other thing if you're the commander of chief and left the
enemy stranded behind enemy lines in afghanistan. i would spend all my time on that. i wouldn't go to california. i wouldn't campaign. i would make sure everybody knows i'm going to get these people out >> brian: why did he show up. >> jesse: he's campaigning in the middle of an pandemic. we can play that game, too. trump is now the wedge issue for democrats. this is what they've done. so you're either a trump republican and that fires up the democrat base, or if you try to distance yourself from trump, the republican base goes crazy and hates you. so that could work in a state like california where republicans are outnumbered, but that's not really going to play in swing districts next fall. it's a lazy argument. but the real issue immigration has killed the republican party in the state of california. the foreign born population in the state of california is 25%. foreign born voters vote 2-1 democrat. you do amnesty, you do those special visas, green cards,
chain migration, birth right amnesty, you're loading it up. we already know they vote 2-1 democrat, asians 2-1 democrat, blacks 2-1 democrat. in a state like that if you throw out a lot of nasty racial attacks to that population, you know, we're not all paying attention that much to politics, that's going to move the needle. and then you throw in the $70 million in advertising appear the guy's good looking, great head of hair, charisma, well tanned. a lot of people pay attention to that kind of stuff. i don't personally, at all. but a lot of people do. >> brian: very similar hair style head set. for more on that let's go to jessica. jessica why did they not bring up things he did well? why don't they say he's done a great job bringing up the homeless population, raising taxes? why don't they bring up some things he did well? how come they're always just saying you don't want donald trump. >> jessica: you don't want donald trump or you do want
donald trump is the most animating issue in america and continues to be that way. and it's just not going to change even through the midterms. and jesse is right, not about the hair thing. i mean, he is, gavin newsome is very good looking but that does not get you a governorship. but coming out right now and saying that larry -- >> what has he done well? what has newsom done well? what has he done well. >> great question. >> jessica: the pressure laundry is lovely. i didn't go during the pandemic. >> besides that what did he do well. >> people in the state he had a very high approval rating. >> what has he done well jessica? >> jessica: what are you talking about? what do you want me to say about it. can i just say something about who's voting in contrast to what jesse was saying, yes, you have a latino population that tends to vote democrat that is shifting. you also have a conservative population asian representatives that spent more asian representatives on the republican side in 2020.
those make a difference. they won't shift the recall. but the democrats are aware of a shifting tied in terms of how a minority population is voting and he's bringing up racial issues not to say larry elder is a white supremacist but to say one party, the democratic party is the one paying attention to the racial ine quality issues. >> he has the meade why on his side. for them to not have the white woman in a grasry a mask throwing eggs at him. >> they called it an egg throwing incident. and then the la times viciously used a photo of larry elder in a moment where he was moving towards someone he knows, looked like he was hitting her, on the story, like this, and said he had to leave this homeless enkavrment because there was an incident larry elder implying he was engaged with this woman instead he was being attacked by a white woman in a gorilla face. i will say it's been a long time since ronald reagan was the
governor of california but conservatives have been making up ground in the more conservative districts and i think that people in california, including minorities, care a lot about crime and homelessness affecting their communities and the places they live. it's interesting to me, to ask the question to someone like gavin newsom or president joe biden, are all the democrats are voting against gavin newsom donald trump? are all the democrats running against gavin newsom the same thing as donald trump? because it's not just republicans and larry elder who want to recall the governor. there are a lot of independents and democrats who want the same thing. >> brian: so let me tell you what's coming up over the next 37 minutes. this story, president biden about to give a speech in colorado on green energy. i know you're saying finally. we'll monitor for any news. coming up socialist hip country aoc defends wearing tax the rich gown to a star studded event that we were not invited to and

institutions. and, you know, while the met is known for its spectacle, we should have a conversation about it. >> jessica: okay. so housekeeping first. she didn't pay for the tickets, she didn't pay for the dress. >> dana: who did? >> jessica: it was donated and i don't know what goes on. but today everyone is talking about it which was the point. so doesn't aoc just win? >> dana: i guess she wins in terms of her goal of furthering the conversation, which she did. everybody is talking about it. but i actually found this infuriating and it has nothing to do with her dress. if you watch the way that these elites walking the red carpet, they are walking unabated. their faces are open. they get to smile for all the cameras and all the working class people serving them have to be faceless, they are masked and we see this as a habit for the left. and she claims to be fighting for the people and i watched a
video of her having her train carried through the carpet into the met by a bunch of people working there who were masked. we saw nancy pelosi do this with herbig outdoor dinner while the servants, many people of color, by the way, you know, serving them. we saw this at president obama's party. so this idea now of the left and the elites allowing the pandemic -- they've never had to deal with it. they all flew in on private jets, they don't have to worry about vaccine mandates for commercial travel if they want to see theory family. but the people they think serve them and work for them, they have to be sub jew gated to these rules. so it's not about her dress, this is about marxism and communism at its core which means the elites get to do whatever they want and the peasants and little people have to serve them and obey the rules if they want to just go to work for a day. >> jessica: what do you think about that point? >> dana: a couple things. so she is aoc antoinette and this is a perfect event for her
the champagne socialists all get together once a year and katie that is a very good point about the working class people that were there. because the democratic party has a little bit of a problem, and the republicans have taken a different tact in the last several years that they're more of the party of the working class and you might start to see a little more if the republicans can figure out out how to do this. she didn't pay for the ticket, the ticket was donated. do you think that the person who donated the ticket through the nonprofit fundraiser didn't deduct that from their taxes? of course they did. and they didn't show up in hybrid cars and green new deal vehicles. they are right now trying to pass a $3.5 trillion bill and reverse engineering, like it's going to help all sorts of people. and the trust in government is at such a low he been right now that i don't know if it's going to pass or not. the thing for her is, she knows how to get attention. she does it very well. beautiful young woman. she's got a big following.
my last point is, i really respect the designer, aurora james. impressive person. but in her twitter feed, aoc said that she was an immigrant. okay, she comes from canada. okay? it's not like she was making her way up from a really tough place like bangladesh or nicaragua. she came from toronto. >> she speaks canadian so it must have been really tough. >> the other thing on that too is aoc is not working class. she grew up in a very rich suburb went to boston university, was a bartender for a short period of time and now is a congresswoman living in washington, dc, in one of the most expensive buildings in dc and lives above the whole foods and drives a tesla. come on. >> jesse:. >> jesse: bernie sanders would have stood across the steps of the gala with a little placard that said tax the rich and a bull horn. that's a protest. this is a performance. this is a pop star socialist
trying to get street cred for the slogan and also wanting to hang out with celebrities. here's how it goes, anna runs the top of the met. so she sends aoc a ticket, and everybody else, as dana said, writes this off as a tax deduction. so aoc goes, she gets buzz, the met gala gets buzz. we're talking about it. and all these rich liberals get to feel like, yeah, we're vert with us, yeah, sure, tax the rich. and then the next day their accountants are working 24/7 to lower their taxable income. the funny thing is aoc writes the tax code. she's raising awareness? okay, we know liberals want to raise taxes on the rich. we've known that for a hundred years. she could write a tax bill. aoc has never written a bill that's gotten out of committee her entire career. she does nancy and chuck do it with a room full of lobbyist
they car have out the loopholes and then the next cycle the republicans scar have out the lobbyists and work out the loopholes. she does it every time and gets what she wants. >> brian: right now if you work in new york and you have $10 you have to give away six. how much more money do you want. 61% of everyone's income on the books between state and local and city taxes, goes to somebody else. and yet most of those people that are rich, very few inherited it. a lot are working 60, 70 hours a woke supporting other people who are not working or who work government jobs. the other thing is, to bring up, mayor de blasio was also there. this guy's poverty, a marxist really against the rich and for the working class and hates cop and hangs out with the rich and famous. that's where he's going to end up in his years. i find the whole thing detestable. but i feel as though this is going to be the preliminary to the mansion aoc heavy weight bought that's going to be taking

are at risk to the unvaccinated but you can't say the unvaccinated are a risk to the vaccinated especially when they're saying the vaccinated are spreading. >> dana: that was the most inco-leernt part of the president's speech last week, with the mandates. the other thing the president seems to be trying to do is to silo his political enemies into being against vaccines. and it's just like it's not right and it's not fair. and if you look at the merits of it, it's not true. so maybe on the masking thing, if we really, truly believe that masks were going to be the end all cure all maybe you could have an argument about that and we're talking about vac scenes, in fact ava hutchinson from arkansas had a good point, what are you doing? i'm trying to get people vaccinated and you coming in with this heavy government push is making it harder for me. the other thing is in the washington post today there's a big piece about the concern that the vaccine hesitancy about covid could actually spill over into other vaccines, like for
chickenpox, measles, polio, things like that. what's interesting to me about that is where was that concern a year ago, almost to the day, when kamala harris and joe biden were running for president and vice-president, and they said they would be unwilling to take the vaccine if it was approved under a trump presidency. and nobody said anything about vaccine hesitancy at that point. >> katie: right. doctor kill me we know you love telling people what to do with their medical decisions so we're giving you the floor. >> brian: don't ever have me go after dana, she took like nine of my points. she stole my notes, never should have left them out. that's fine. a couple of things, hundred percent right about governor hutchinson. not only that dr. scott gottlieb hardly an a positively gist for trump or anybody else, he said, listen, you don't want to do that. i have conversations with people in my office to describe why they should get the vaccine, what mdo, what mrna technology
is. the other thing and i know other people have to get in here. when you go through this vaccine and you want people to take the vaccine, i think it would be perfectly honest to say who's not taking it. ph.d.s aren't taking it, a huge number of medical experts aren't taking it and the african american community 40% have been vaccinated. so don't yell at trump supporters and say you're the problem. point out there's some smart people that don't want to take it. ask them why >> katie: right. jessica? >> jessica: i think everyone who hasn't taken it yet should get a fair hearing why they're not and that's why immunity conversation is a huge factor in this and that was part of the biden mandate is that you could also get tested on a weekly basis and that would cover you in terms of getting vaccinated, you could get on an airplane and all those things. the kaiser family foundation who really leads the way in terms of great data when it comes to healthcare has a lot of
interesting information as to who people turn to when they want advice, it's friends and family and your personal doctor. that's where people are getting most of this information. i think that is a good thing. but i also do know that a lot of private businesses have welcomed biden's mandate because they don't want to be the ones to say you're going to lose your job if you don't do this. they can now say these are the rules and we have seen huge spikes in people getting vaccinated because of it and we know that that does cut down on your chances of ending up on a ventilator in a hospital and that is a i good thing. >> jesse we also see though a lots of especially small businesses, the corporations are fine with this, but small business saying we can't afford this and they're setting them up really to get sued. >> jesse: right and the trial lawyers donate to the dems so it all comes back to that. actually, after biden announced the vax mandate, vaccination rates have dropped. it actually back fired. this was like almost ten days ago. >> it was friday. >> jesse: no, it wasn't friday.
