i have double duty. melissa: get one bigger gift. david: roses are cheaper after valentine's day. i still have to get a gift. great to be back. melissa: i missed you. glad you're back. david: that does it for us. "risk & reward" starts right now. deirdre: big changes to the gop field. governor chris christie and carly fiorina both ending their presidential bids. this is "risk & reward," i'm deirdre bolton. in the new hampshire primary donald trump and democratic senator bernie sanders both won by double digits. >> we are going to start winning again. and we're going to win so much, you are going to be so happy, we are going to make america so great again. >> because of a huge voter turnout, and i say huge, we won. >> there's magic in the air with this campaign. to reshine america, to restore
the spirit of america, and to leave no one behind. >> the men and women here and all across this great state proved them wrong. >> i still love new hampshire and i always will. [cheers and applause] >> while the reality tv star is still doing well, it looks like you all have reset the race. for that i am really grateful. [cheering] deirdre: billionaire businessman, donald trump backer, ernie boch, jr. great to see you begin. two gop candidates dropping out. what does it mean for donald trump? >> i think it is good. mr. trump did fantastic in new hampshire. he will do great in south carolina. it's guns blazing, he'll do great. deirdre: ernie, we know you're a supporter, we talked about that, but in this prescient moment. here he is on commenting on possibility of christie stepping out.
>> i was hit pretty hard. mort zuckerman man who ownses daily news, totally failing paper, insecure guy, every week they do a cover story, very demeaning story, i guess it sells in some form, everybody understands he is a very, very insecure person and his magazine is -- >> that is not even journalism. >> no. >> whether people disagree with you is one thing. >> it's a disgrace. i mean it is a disgrace. he is a low-life. i know him for a long time. he is a low-life. deirdre: that was actually sound, ernie as you heard from "the daily news." pull that cover back up so viewers can follow it. essentially donald trump made to look like the joker from batman and "the daily news" editorial line saying in fact that the people who supports donald trump are essentially like day of the dead zombies. i don't know if you follow any of the zombie programs on tv but that is essentially what that paper is claiming. what do you say though? you support him for legitimate causes.
one business person to another, you think he makes sense. why? >> i think he makes sense. i think america is lucky to have a guy like that. he is a emergency. workaholic. all he will do is, all he will do, is be president, if he elected, which you know, i hope he is elected. he doesn't drink. he doesn't smoke. he doesn't go on vacation. he will live and breathe this position. deirdre: i take your point seriously, ernie. you're responsible for a million dollar business as is donald trump. this is really about a business leader or leader of any kind. in south carolina there are eight military bases. close to 60,000 military retirees, is best to be
commander in will come up. will it be bitter for trump to bring into the fold a military expert, will he need to do that. >> i agree. i think he will win. i think military people will embrace him. i think he will win. deirdre: he made a reference to that in subtle way in his speech. here it is. >> we are going to do something so good and so fast and so strong and the world is going to respect us again. i am going to be. i am going to be the greatest jobs president that god ever created. we are going to start winning defend and we're going to win so much. you are going to be so happy. we're going to make america so great again. maybe greater than ever before. deirdre: there was reference to being solid commander-in-chief and putting people around him
who have the area of expertise. foreign policy expertise. he said i will be the greatest jobs president. this is in particular you see eye-to-eye. you feel like he understands what it means to run a business as do you? >> absolutely. i think he will be the greatest job president. and one of his strengths that he has proven over and over again is that he can hire good people around him. he can qualify talent. he can keep talent. and he can nuture talent. he has great managers around him. he has to have that in order to run a business the way he does. deirdre: all right. we take your point seriously, ernie. we thank you so much. ernie bock, jr., billionaire businessman. we'll focus on the other side of the aisle. self-proclaimed democratic socialist, senator sanders beat hillary clinton 60-30%. you have to go back to
john f. kennedy victory in 1960 to see a similar point spread in new hampshire. here are senator sanders and secretary clinton's comments from last night. >> together we have sent a message that will echo from wall street to washington, from maine to california. [cheers and applause] >> i know i have some work to do. particularly with young people but i will repeat again what i have said this week. [cheering] even, even if they are not supporting me now, i support them. deirdre: billionaire investor john paul dejoria is with me now. thanks for your time. >> you're welcome. deirdre: as successful person what do you make of senator sanders's policies? in many ways he seeks to tax people who have built businesses such as yourself from scratch. >> with all due respect, i love y'all out there, love you out
there, but, what he doesn't realize is, with all due respect he doesn't know about economics. mr. sanders seems like really nice guy. he probably has a big heart but what he should be saying is that the money we spend on regulations and too much government could be the money we spend on helping people, not raising taxes. a lot of things that he misses he doesn't know. i give you example. in austin, texas where i live, 25 years there were no people panhandling on the street. they were selling flowers or trinkets. because regulations required an $800 license to sell little flowers, people did it. more than half the people in the united states can't have a lemonade stand without a license or regulation. which forces them to get out there to panhandle and do something different. i think he is a nice man but what he has to realize his, his ideas are great ideas but it will destroy america by number one, not letting americans have the american dream. my god, i started out poor.
i'm part of giving pledge, myself, gates, other billionaires. half of what we're make something going to make the world a better place. deirdre: we want to check in with you. we know you built numerous businesses from scratch. >> yes, i have. deirdre: your point is well-taken which candidate will serve the next generation of entrepreneurs, who like yourself can give back? >> oh, deirdre, may i say something else also. people have the to realize especially new entrepreneurs coming up, his tax plan, i'm sure he means well but his brain is not there, as entrepreneur depending on state you will work 60, to 70% of the year just to pay taxes. can you man looking 12 months of the year and you're looking to august just to pay your taxes? only got three or four months the money is yours? what motivation is this? if he had his brain screwed on right, no disrespect to the man
ox? he doesn't know economics, we're overburdennenned with too much government. take away from the government that we don't need, the regulation, the rules, agencies we don't need. use that money to do all wonderful things you want. bernie, going in the wrong direction even though you mean well. deirdre: young people seem attracted to one of his talking points, one of the ideas is free college. we'll play a little clip to get everybody up to speed. >> sure. >> i believe public colleges and universities should be tuition-free. tuition-fry. tuition-free. tuition-free. deirdre: so, john, i'm taking it as example of where you see perhaps generosity of spirit but one that is not going to work? >> that is so correct, my gosh. and also he forgets about the incentive. america is full of incentives,
someone like me, a common person, comes from a family with no money, to actually make it, okay? i'm a high school graduate. i have a phd but it is honorary. but i was high school graduate. if they go to college, if they feel like they pay something to go there they feel like a contribution, they really study. people are given things free of charge. take it for granted in most cases -- deirdre: you don't -- [inaudible] >> there ain't no free lunch. i don't want -- socialism doesn't work. example he think he related to it to sweden. i want the same social situation they do. i talked to a man there who is retiring, jp, i have to retire because they're paying me as much money retired as i was working. so why should i work at all? this makes zero sense. this is the not attitude. people can live to be 90, 120 years old the but they're thinking i will work and retire for doing nothing more i just get money? burden to them. they will die sooner and burden on society.
it's not right. bernie, with all due respect, you're a good man, talk to economists or entrepreneurs that came from nothing. know what it is like to go with something. talk to people with giving pledge. there are over 100 of us. billionaires that pledged to give away half the fortunes to change the world. you start overtaxing us, wait a minute, you're over taxing us, you're wasting money. we're spending money to make change not bigger government. man, you mean well, deal with bigger people. deirdre: talk to people who have given the pledge. pretty good idea. >> i sure hope so. america has got to know it still works. entrepreneurship works. nice to have a lot of free stuff. may i mention this on your show, 30 seconds. the reason bernie sanders and donald trump are ahead of their game is because they both have the same message. no disrespect to either one of them. our government printly isn't working. whether you're a democrat or republican there is a lot of
people you're beholden too. this is not right. obama's administration didn't work. maybe the one before didn't work the way people wanted either. things aren't working. that is message to give out there. guys change it for we the people, but don't do it to destroy america. don't do it where we stop our american dream from coming true. please don't. be america. don't be too far to the left. don't be too far to the right. be in the middle love one another. you asked me to talk about bernie i appreciate. deirdre: right. >> he did very little about attacking his own party and other people. unfortunately republicans are attack one another. deirdre: there are more of that. i hear your point. campaign of positivity. i like your idea, rejection of the current system. we take that to heart. john paul, thank you so much. >> oh, yeah. deirdre: john paul dejoria. >> love y'all ought out there. peace, love happiness. america still works. deirdre: parents are up in arm
after a white guilt video was shown to their kids at a virginia high school. ♪ deirdre: more clips from the video coming your way. "huffington post" says, senator sanders and his democratic social system soaring with new hampshire voters. >> what the people here have said, is that given the enormous crises facing our country, it is just too late for the same old, same old, establishment politics and establishment economics. the people want real change. [cheers and applause] deirdre: on the psychology behind democratic socialism's appeal. after this. [shouting] >> free. free.
free. every day you read headlines about businesses being hacked and intellectual property being stolen. that is cyber-crime and it affects each and every one of us. microsoft created the digital crimes unit to fight cyber-crime. we use the microsoft cloud to visualize information so we can track down the criminals. when it comes to the cloud, trust and security are paramount. we're building what we learn back into the cloud
>> this is the promise we must keep alive for future generations. what began last week in iowa, what voters here in new hampshire confirmed tonight, is nothing short of the beginning of a political revolution. [cheers and applause] deirdre: senator sanders is self-declared socialist. he trounced hillary in the primary. 60% of the vote went to him. 70% of those under 45 voted for
bernie sanders. gravitating toward his socialist views on education and health care. my next guest says some of those views will make him public enemy number one. dr. keith ablow with me on the psychology behind socialism. dr. ablow, glad you are here. why are so many young voters attacked to senator sanders ideas? >> i think they are attracted to these ideas they don't have enough sense of self, frankly. social media emptied people out of their own intentions. they have become their facebook profiles. they count how many tweets and likes they send out or get. and, that doesn't substitute for achievement. i see a lot of people in my practice who are lost, who don't have a sense forward momentum. bernie sanders appeals to those people because he says it has nothing to do with you. you don't have to do any soul-searching.
you don't have to find your god-given gifts. you stand in line for free stuff. because there is a big conspiracy against you from the billionaires. so he plays to people's sense of paranoia. and he frees them from any desire to actuallyize themselves. that's very, very toxic. deirdre: i'm just curious, doctor. with the people in your patients referring mostly to millenials. how much is coming from low job prospects? by that they either got a four-year degree but still can only find hourly work at starbucks or something like that? or they just feel like corporate america isn't for them? that is absolutely true and jobs with real futures prays upon young people. there are other forces too. i think technology is a among the forces that leads them to feel not very powerful. only as powerful as the pixels
they can send out or receive. i do think the fact there are only hourly jobs and part-time jobs is part of it not all of it. drug use is part of it. when people don't feel empowered they don't want to feel anxious or depressed. they use drugs in order to lull themselves into false sense of serenity. bernie sanders is psychological public enemy number one, because ultimately he wants feel powerful, but the way he wants to do it to suggest to others that they need parenting, perpetual parenting from the state because they're not effective as human beings and individuals. that is tremendously toxic. i know your last guest says bernie sanders is nice guy. he is not a nice guy. he is a very dangerous guy. deirdre: well, to your point he is appealing to a lot of young people. i saw a t-shirt other day, i hope your life on facebook is as good as you pretend to be.
i hope your real life is as good as your facebook life which tends to prove some of your points. dr. keith ablow. thank you for being here. >> thank you. >> twitter reporting quarterly numbers moments ago. if you look at the stock it is down. jared levy a money manager, is this a buying opportunity? >> i think you need to stay away from twitter at this point. they are rediscovering who they are. i don't know if they find identity other than being part of someone else. in other words only upside i see in twitter is someone like google or facebook and incorporating them into the repertoire. twitter is unsuccessful monetizing their service and their users are going away. short answer, no, i think it's a dangerous stock to own here. deirdre: we will take you at your word, jared. we'll continue the conversation in a bit. cisco out with earnings. jared will be back with us
momentarily. meantime last night, the big new hampshire wins are statement of antigovernment sentiment according to some. >> i've got a pen and i've got a phone. i've got a pen to take executive actions where congress won't. i have a telephone. i have got a pen and a phone. deirdre: coming up tax expert grover norquist says the president's executive orders are partly responsible. and a white guilt video shown at a virginia high school has parents up in arms. more clips after this. ♪ at ally bank, no branches equals great rates.
it's a fact. kind of like grandkids equals free tech support. oh, look at you, so great to see you! none of this works. come on in. i use what's already inside me to reach my goals. so i liked when my doctor told me i may reach my blood sugar and a1c goals by activating what's within me. with once-weekly trulicity. trulicity is not insulin. it helps activate my body to do what it's supposed to do release its own insulin. trulicity responds when my blood sugar rises. i take it once a week, and it works 24/7. it comes in an easy-to-use pen and i may even lose a little weight. trulicity is a once-weekly injectable prescription medicine to improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes. it should be used along with diet and exercise. trulicity is not recommended as the first medicine
to treat diabetes and should not be used by people with severe stomach or intestinal problems, or people with type i diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. trulicity is not insulin and has not been studied with long-acting insulin. do not take trulicity if you or anyone in your family has had medullary thyroid cancer or multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2 or if you are allergic to trulicity or its ingredients. stop using trulicity and call your doctor right away if you have symptoms of an allergic reaction, such as itching, rash, or difficulty breathing; if you have signs of pancreatitis such as severe stomach pain that will not go away and may move to your back, with or without vomiting; or if you have symptoms of thyroid cancer, which may include a lump or swelling in your neck, hoarseness, trouble swallowing, or shortness of breath. medicines like trulicity may cause stomach problems, which could be severe. tell your doctor about all your medical conditions and any medicines you take. taking trulicity with a sulfonylurea or insulin may increase your risk for low blood sugar. common side effects include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, decreased appetite, and indigestion. some side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney failure.
with trulicity, i click to activate what's within me. if you want help improving your a1c and blood sugar numbers with a non-insulin option, ask your doctor about once-weekly trulicity. and click to activate your within. at ally bank, no branches equals great rates. it's a fact. kind of like social media equals anti-social. hey guys, i want you to meet my fiancée, denise. hey. good to meet you dennis. deirdre: president obama proposed final budget of his presidency, a record $4 trillion
plus package for 2017. the president put a full cabinet press on capitol hill trying to sell it to congress. americans for tax reform, founder, grover norquist. welcome back. this spending bill is dead on arrival, right? i want to continue but get your take yea or nay? >> yes. if they put it up for a vote, not a single democrat would vote for it, it's that crazy. deirdre: a great place to start this conversation. president obama's budget would increase taxes more than 2 1/2 trillion dollars over the coming decade, boost spending 5%. so you say it's crazy. there are a few little parts that are bipartisan, but sounds like that gets thrown out with the baby with the bath water? >> they will take this from the house and senate and start from scratch. the president each time put forward ridiculous budgets. when they have been put up in the past, all together they have only gotten 2 democrats to vote
for them. this is not the first time his wish-list, a bernie sanders wish-list facing a republican congress so the answer is no. deirdre: when you say it is like a bernie sanders wish-list, the president at very least knows this probably will not pass and he wants to start a conversation. so is he pushing democratic candidates then further to the left than at leave hillary clinton wants to be? >> hillary clinton has the challenge that she has to run on obama record, or run away from it, and to the left where she would like to be seen and bernie sanders dragging her even further left. she is stuck in between obama and bernie sanders. they both jogged tremendously to the left and she is stuck right there on everything from taxes spending regulations, gun control, you name it. if she has her own ideas, they
don't matter because she has been swept away by the left ward lurch of the modern democratic party. everybody focuses on this train wreck the republicans have going and they miss the modern democratic party has gone off into a zone that makes mcgovern looks reasonable. deirdre: voters are not looking it. personally you have a lot of people saying donald trump getting a lot of support and senator sanders, talking about a anti-establishment record. grover norquist americans for tax reform with me today. earlier today the fed warned on the u.s. economy. >> anyone claiming that america's economy is in decline is peddling fiction. deirdre: that was the president but fed chair janet yellen telling congress that global economic volatility and selloff in stocks could rattle the u.s. economy. money manager jared levy back with me now.
jared, who's right, the president or the head of the fed janet yellen? >> i probably have to give it to janet yellen. she has more skin in the game. her words were interesting. she iterated the point that the fed's trajectory is not automatically laid out, it isn't a plan they have to follow. i watch the markets very closely obviously. one thing i noticed i expected mexican peso to rally strong. the reason why is, there was potential for the u.s. to have less of a bullish outlook on interest rates. and that didn't happen. so the bottom line is i think there is bigger problems. i think problems in china are much bigger than we think they are. problems in japan and problems in europe will play a big factor keeping these markets down. i do believe the fed will be much lower than those think hiking interest rates. deirdre: jared we check back in with you a bit. still have to talk about cisco. meantime accusations of epa overreach. judge andrew napolitano tells me
what he thinks of the supreme court ruling on president obama's climate change rules. speaking of climate change, environmental concerns, a flint mother is calling out the epa for not intervening with the lead crisis and poisoned water. her personal story coming up. >> why would they be paying for water that they can not even use that is poisoning them? that's not american. that's what mr. chairman said, this is not a third world country!
they represent blood cells. and if you have afib-an irregular heartbeat that may put you at five times greater risk of stroke : n, where it can block blood flow and cause a stroke. but if you have afib that's not caused by a heart valve problem, pradaxa can help stop clots from forming. pradaxa was even proven superior to warfarin at reducing the risk of stroke, in a clinical trial without the need for regular blood tests.
and, in the rare event of an emergency, pradaxa is the only oral blood thinner other than warfarin with a specific reversal treatment to help your body clot normally again. pradaxa is not for people who have had a heart valve replacement. don't stop taking pradaxa without talking to your doctor. stopping increases your risk of stroke or blood clots ask your doctor if you need to stop pradaxa before any planned medical or dental procedure. pradaxa can cause serious, and sometimes, fatal bleeding. don't take pradaxa if you have abnormal bleeding. and seek immediate medical care for unexpected signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. pradaxa may increase your bleeding risk if you're 75 or older, have kidney problems, stomach ulcers, a bleeding condition, or take certain medicines. side effects with pradaxa can include indigestion, stomach pain, upset or burning. don't just go with the flow. go with pradaxa, the only blood thinner that lowers your risk of stroke better than warfarin and has a specific reversal treatment. talk to your doctor about pradaxa today.
. deirdre: the white house is vowing to push ahead its clean power plan. now one important detail, the supreme court halted president obama's carbon emissions plan. the decision is a big victory for opponents who call the proposed regulations an unprecedented power grab. fox news senior judicial analyst judge andrew napolitano is with me now. great to see. >> you good to see you, deirdre. deirdre: how do you see as a legal expert the supreme court's halt? >> the supreme court rarely does something where can you say always or never. this is a never. the supreme court has never before reached down to a case that isn't even before the court, it's in a court below the supreme court and ordered that court to stop the government from enforcing a rule -- deirdre: first time in history? >> correct. the epa is presumed to be filled with experts on the economy, understand the law, the economy, the environment,
who understand the law, and will know what the environment needs. their job is to interpret the law, interpret the facts and come up with reasonable regulations. when they do this, the courts presume the regulations are valid and lawful. when the supreme court stops the regulation before it's enforced, it turns that presumption on its head. basically saying we're presuming it's invalid and unlawful. deirdre: don't think about it? >> correct. normally when you challenge an epa rule or fda rule or any of the administrative agencies, the rule stays in place during the tendency of challenge, it can take three or four years for the challenge to come to fruition, the epa wins or loses. it's rare to do. this here's why, when the epa regulates, they have two ways, they say you have to reduce the number of carbon parts per billion and say to the state, you have to monitor the power
plant. where do the states get the money with which to monitor the power plant? from the power plant. where does the power plant get the money from? from the consumers. the last time the supreme court validated a rumor they extracted the money from the people they were regulating, 10 billion dollars only to enforce a rule the supreme court said was invalid and unconstitutional. they want to make sure that doesn't happen again. deirdre: great reason because that's pretty scandalous. judge, thank you very much for translating the state of play, judge andrew napolitano joining me there. speaking of scandals, a mother in flint, michigan slamming the epa for the slow reaction on the poisoned water crisis. melissa may says the epa knew since last february about the high levels of lead in the drinking water. did nothing about it. she and her husband and three children are now suffering from health problems.
she founded a group called what are you fighting for. thank you for joining us, we are glad to have you here. first, before we get into the details how you are challenging what happened to you and your family, are your kids, are you, are your husband feeling better? >> no, actually, my kids, all of us are getting worse by the days, fatigue, grade problems at school, getting worse, we're working with tutors now. i actually have to go in for consultation for a liver biopsy in a week and a half to figure out how many contaminants are on my body. i'm on sick leave from work and it's not getting better. deirdre: obviously, we are collectively sorry. it's a disgrace, no other word for it. what needs to be done in flint, michigan to support families like yours? >> we need help. we need these pipes replaced. we have a copper service line and every morning we fill the tub up and look at it, and it
comes through blue which shows the copper is being corroded from the line coming into our water, our line is held together and plumbing held together with lead, weld and solder, we can look at the blue and know it's not safe. the lead lines and galvanized lines and copper lines, that's what we're hearing from the plumber. until the water is clear, it's not safe. we have to bathe in it, launder in it and do the dishes, we can't live in bottled water, it's not feasible. we need actual fixes which are getting the destroyed pipes out. deirdre: from what i understand, the mayor of flint is making plans but i understand every day that goes by, you feel worse, family feels worse and family obviously is not isolated in this instance. melissa, we wish you the best of luck, thank you for sharing your story. melissa mays is the founder of a call to action group, what are you drinking.
parents speaking out about a white guilt video shown to high school students in virginia. conservative black chick editor chrystal wright will tell me what she thinks of the video. and bernie sanders hitting a big win in new hampshire. a sitdown with the reverend al sharpton, she says that bernie voters will get what they vote for. more after this. >> i think it is very important that he sends a signal that on the morning after a historic victory is the widest margin we've seen in the history of new hampshire. he would come to harlem and have breakfast with me. for four years,r car you named it brad.
you loved brad. and then you totaled him. you two had been through everything together. two boyfriends, three jobs... you're like nothing can replace brad. then liberty mutual calls, and you break into your happy dance. if you sign up for better car replacement™, we'll pay for a car that's a model year newer with 15,000 fewer miles than your old one. see car insurance in a whole new light. liberty mutual insurance. the access informationlows us to from anywhere. the microsoft cloud allows us to scale up. microsoft cloud changes our world dramatically. it wasn't too long ago it would take two weeks to sequence and analyze a genome. now, we can do a hundred per day. with the microsoft cloud we don't have to build server rooms. we have instant scale. the microsoft cloud is helping us to re-build and re-interpret our business. this cloud helps transform business. this is the microsoft cloud.
. deirdre: parents are calling out a white guilt video that was shown to high school students in virginia. so it shows athletes at a track meet, several white runners get ahead, a head start on several black runners forced to deal with things such as slavery, genoside and broken treaties. school officials call it a lesson in, quote, american history and racial discourse. conservative black chick editor, author of conjob, chrystal wright is with me now the. is this the right way to start a conversation about race, starbucks founder howard schultz tried to do it over collective coffees, people rejected the effort. >> great way to start a conversation about political envy and racism and encourage black kids and white kids to hate each other. it's black history month, how
about watch martin luther king, jr.'s "i have a dream" speech where he wanted blacks to be treated as equals. deirdre: inspirational. >> right? deirdre: at the same time, you and i are chatting, there's a white man holding a baton that says yale on it, he's on a conveyor belt so he passes a black runner who hit a brick wall and you see the words wealth and old boy network as he crosses the finish line. making the argument that this is basically hurting race relations. it's hurting integration? >> yeah, and how come that video didn't have affirmative action as the brick wall? i think that 50+ years after passage of the civil rights act and affirmative action policy, blacks are very much hitting a brick wall in that they're not graduating college at the rate of whites. all that affirmative action, brick wall, right? look, i thought it was a joke when your producer sent it to me.
i was like, is this a cartoon? deirdre: intentionally funny, this was beyonce's black power salute, which has caused since that time an outrage. some milwaukee county sheriff david clarke on our show, his reaction is here, and it's going viral. >> them coming out, beyonce and those black panther-type uniforms. would that be acceptable if a white band came out in hoods and white sheets in the same sort of fashion? we would be appalled and outraged. the black panthers are a subversive hate group in america. i think she could have done a better job. deirdre: i think in some ways it was a nod to michael jackson. what was your take? were you watching the super bowl? >> i only watch the super bowl for the halftime show. deirdre: okay, so you saw it. >> i saw it. i agree with the sheriff.
if a white musician came out dressed like the kkk and backup dancers had white hoods and bopping around like beyonce, we would never hear the end of it. i thought football was supposed to be about hot dogs, junk food, beer, wine, and having a good time, and all of a sudden about politics, and, oh, beyonce, i think she had to have a huge police escort, did she not? for security at the stadium? she wants to tell cops, you know, hey, your life doesn't matter and encouraged young black men to get confrontational and risk their lives with cops. we don't need more of that. deirdre: value the perspective, chrystal wright, joining me there, editor of conservative black chick. fox is confirming that governor chris christie is suspending his campaign. the new jersey governor just posting on facebook a statement saying i ran for president to say that the government needs
to once again work for the people, not the people work for the government. and while running for president, i tried to reinforce what i believed that speaking your mind matters, experience matters, that competence matters and will always matter in leading our nation. and so today, i leave the race without an ounce of regret. we will have more on what that does to the gop field when we come back. we are also going to talk about the days of gas being cheap. my next guest says that could be over. president obama's proposal of $10 per barrel tax would definitely hurt american consumers. we'll talk about it. also today's daily news calling trump voters brain-dead. they paint trump as the joker, calling him a hate-spewing clown. my next guest says, well, there's more than one way to see that bias. >> cruz operates below the level of human life.

. deirdre: president obama's proposing a $10 per barrel crude oil tax as part of his budget. he's suggesting to use the tax to fund clean and public transport programs. sources say energy companies will pass that down to consumers and people would pay on offerage 20-25 cents more at the pump. with me american petroleum institute president jack girard, welcome, glad to have you here. >> thank you. deirdre: first of all, president obama's budget seems like it's not going to be passed. numerous experts tell us it will be dead on arrival. if it does, oil companies would
just pass the costs down to the everyday person, right? >> well, what's really unfortunate is what the president has proposed as a $300 billion tax increase, most adverse impact falls to the american consumer. as you pointed out earlier somewhere between 20 and 25 cents per gallon, you couldn't pick a worse time to suggest we ought to lay that tax out on the consumers. when you look at it based on the price of a barrel of oil today, 30% increase. so it doesn't make any sense, like you say. it's highly unlikely congress will fall for this. it's my expectation that most democrats would oppose this but begs the question, why would they do it? why would they suggest now is the time to lay a $300 billion tax on the american people. deirdre: grover norquist told us two democrats overall might vote for this. seems highly unlikely it will be accepted, but wouldn't be prices at the pump going
higher, other forms of energy prices would go higher as well, right? >> it would have impact clear across the economy. sometimes when we think about a tax like this, we look at it from the pergallon basis. but remember, everything we eat is moved and transported primarily driven by gas and diesel prices. you will see it reflected in the price of food, energy heating at home, depending on what form of energy you rely on. it has broad implications clear across the economy and 300 billion taken out of the economy that's growing at less than 1% is not a positive move. deirdre: jack gerard, thank you so much. glad to have you here. >> thank you. deirdre: today's daily news calls trump voters brain-dead, saying governor kasich came into a hate-spewing clown. came in second place. my next guest says bias runs throughout all the media. >> there's a troll-like quality
to cruz, he operates below the level of human life. >> okay, chris, you have not gotten sleep. we're going to try that again. >> am i not allowed to have an opinion. >> not that opinion, no. this just got interesting. so why pause to take a pill? and why stop to find a bathroom? with cialis for daily use, you don't have to plan around either. it's the only daily tablet approved to treat erectile dysfunction so you can be ready anytime the moment is right. plus cialis treats the frustrating urinary symptoms of bph, like needing to go frequently, day or night. tell your doctor about all your medical conditions and medicines, and ask if your heart is healthy enough for sex.

"new york daily news" has clown makeup, dawn of the brain-dead. subheadline, clown comes back to life with new hampshire win as mindless zombies turn out in droves. huffington post taking a jab at trump with the headline reading new hampshire goes racist, sexist, xenophobic. brent bosel is with me now. great to have you here.
what are your thoughts on these covers? strong? strong enough? too strong? >> well, it's no surprise they don't like donald trump. what gets me is the insults at the voters, they call them mindless zombies, call them brainless, and clueless in this piece, and this is the daily news that has gone off the left-wing deep edge, they have the cover giving ted cruz the middle finger. they have that cover equating wayne lapierre of the nra as a terrorist. they had the cover that said god didn't fix that about san bernardino when various people offered condolences and said god bless you to the victims. this is a hate-filled magazine, and the interesting thing about the newspaper, deirdre, is the left-wingers are always pontificating about right-wing haters and no conservative type of newspaper that does this sort of thing and is this hate
filled towards liberals. deirdre: donald trump gave his own reaction to the cover. he was speaking with neil cavuto earlier. here's his reaction. >> i was hit pretty hard. i mean, mort zuckerman who owns the daily new, a totally failing paper, an insecure guy, every week they do a very demeaning cover story. it sells in some form. everybody understands he's a very, very insecure person. >> that's not even journalism, donald. whether people agree or disagree with you is one thing. that's a disgrace. >> he's a low life. i've known him for a long time, he's a low life. deirdre: calling out the bias there. it is to your point, brent, everywhere. >> yeah, this tabloid journalism. we understand that. with tabloid journalism you're going far afield sometimes, but that doesn't give you license to undergo a campaign of character assassination.
to call the president of the nra a terrorist, it doesn't give you the right doe that stuff and they're doing that. deirdre: glad to have you, brent bozell, joining me there, glad to have you joining us on "risk & reward." ma"making money" with charles payne starts right now. charles: breaking news, we have just learned it is official, new jersey governor chris christie is suspending his campaign, the news hours after carly fiorina announced she is dropping out as well. so with christie out and a bad performance by marco rubio in new hampshire, is that the end for any establishment lane candidate? is the mainstream media unfairly targeting gop candidates? i've got a power panel that's going to break it all down. and if you were looking for help in the 401(k) from janet yellen, she didn't come riding to the rescue. the dow off almost 100 points despite testimony on capitol hill. first more on the breaking news, christie and fiorina are out, so let's go straight to
