6:00 pm
miss megyn is next. thank you for watching bill o'reilly. the spin stops here because we are looking out for you. breaking tonight, a moment with the potential to change the 2016 republican race for the white house. or not. welcome to the kelly file, everyone. i'm megyn kelly. a short time ago, former vice presidential candidate tea party icon and lightning broad sarah palin joined donald trump on stage before a packed crowd in iowa. the buckeye state. the republicans cast their first vote for the republican nominee. donald trump and ted cruz are neck and neck in the polls. sarah palin endorsed ted cruz in senate contest but this time around she is backing trump and tonight she did not hold back, blasting everyone from president obama to the so-called republican
6:01 pm
establishment in a 20-minute palin monologue that included a full slate of her greatest hits. in a moment brit hume will be here on what this means but first, here are the highlights. >> mr. trump, you're right, look back there in the press box. heads are spinning. media heads are spinning. this is going to be so much fun. are you you ready to make america g eat again? [cheers] >> when asked why i would jump in, in to a primary, trying to stirring it up a little bit, maybe, and choose one over some friends who are running and i have endorsed a couple others in their races before they decided to run for president, i was told, you know, warned left and right you are go going tow֒bl get so clobbered in the press. you are going to get beat up and chewed up and spit out, i'm thinking and -- just last week we are watching our sailors suffer and be
6:02 pm
humiliated on a world stage at the hands of iranian captors in violation of international law. because a weak-kneed capitulator in chief hasv decided that america will lead from behind. and he, who would negotiate deals, the kind of like with the skills of a community organizer, maybe organizing a neighborhood tea, no more pussy footing around. our troops deserve the best. are you ready for a commander in chief? [cheers] are you ready for a commander and chief who will let our warriors do their job and go kick isis ass. [cheers] what he has been able to do, which is really tickingj people off, which i'm glad about, he is going rogue left and right, man. that's why he is doing so well. he has been able to tear the
6:03 pm
vale off this idea of the system. the way the system really works. please hear me on this. i want you to understand more and more how the system, the establishment works and has gotten us into the troubles that we are n america.rc look what's happening today. our own g.o.p. machine, the establishment, they, who would assemble the political land escape, they are attacking their own frontrunner. but for the g.o.p. establishment to be coming after donald trump supporters even, with accusations that are so false, they are so busted the way that this thing works. we, you, a diverse, dynamic, needed support base that they would attack. and now some of them even whispering they are ready to throw in for hillary over trump because they can't afford to see the status quo go. otherwise, they won't be able to be slurping off the grave train that's been feeding them all these
6:04 pm
years. [cheers] >> they don't want that to end. well, and then, funny, ha ha, not, funny. but now what they're doing is wailing, well, trump, and his trumpeters, well, they are not conservative enough to be lectured that, well, you guys are all sounding kind of angry is what we're hearing from the establishment. doggone right we're angry, justifiably so, yes. youknow these stomp on our necks and then they tell us just chill, just relax. well, look, we are mad and we have been had. they need to get used to it. this election is more than just your basic abcs, anybody but clinton. it's more than that this go around. we're not going to chill, in baby, drill down and hold
6:05 pm
these folks accountable. thank you. >> we're going to give them hell. [cheers] >> i just want to thank sarah and todd. i just really amazing people. thank you.r9 >> well, brit hume our fox news senior political analyst. so that was fun. what were your thoughts? >> well, megyn, understand that endorse. s are not what they once were in the days when the governor of a state who had a big political machine or powerful senator who had an organization could swing a state in a primary or even in a general election sometimes behind a particular candidate. >> but were those endorsements rhymes? when you rhyme, it adds a special pizzazz to it. >> i would say this about the palin endorsement of trump. the person it effects more
6:06 pm
than donald trump ted cruz. cruz is running as the consistent conservative. sarah palin has a reputation for being a true blue conservative. sox8? the extent that she effects this race, the doubts shah have been raised about donald trump is whether he is a conservative. that's part of what cruz is saying about him. and now comes sparp who i think retains the afexzs and a number of conservatives to vouch for him. it hurts cruz in iowa. at the margins it makes a difference. >> of course that's why she was unleanerred today because trump has been taking a hit even now with talk radio over the weekend levine and limbaugh because he is going after cruz so hard. levine was out. finally suggesting trump is not and telling him to back off. here is a sampling of that. >> this is why i'm sick and
6:07 pm
tired of stupid talk.wt this is why i'm sick and tired of stupid issues. this birth, nonsense. it's gone on long enough for most of us. if there are web sites that want to keep entertaining it, entertain it if there are nut job lawyers or professors who want to bring the lawsuits, i beg you, bring the lawsuits. but the rest of us don't have to be dragged into stupidity. >> he went on from there and so did rush limbaugh. he needed palin, trump did today. >> i agree with that and cruz was gaining on -- had gained on him in iowa. of course, to the point where, you know, some of the polls, at least, cruz is ahead. i think that average has him about tied. so this is atn threat to trump, megyn, because if he loses in iowa, it sort of pierces this ora of inconvincibility that he has had about him and the idea that is he a winner and how much he is going to win and
6:08 pm
we are going to wins a americans when he is president and all the rest of it. there is some real threat to him here. and cruz was mounting it and this counter acts it to some extent although in my view not very much. >> by the way we said buckeye state should have said hawkeye, forgive me. the other is whether sarah palin yields the influence she had in 2012 when she endorsed ted cruz. i know the endorsement mattered in his senate run. do you think she is asw4a influential figure now in 2016? >> no, i don't. simply because the passage of time and the fact that she did not continue to hold public office and was to some extent out of the public's view. he shoe was on fox news and a lot but that's faded as well. so, it doesn't matter, her influence isn't as great as it once was. but it doesn't hurt. look, what the whole effect of all of this is to blow up the cruz game plan which was to slip stream in trump's
6:09 pm
wake, suck up to him to some extent which he certainly did and hope that he could inherent trump support. he obviously believed that trump would fade away. and he would have -- not having criticized trump, he wouldt< be the one best positioned to inherit his support. this whole war going on out in iowa has ended that. so cruz isoñ taking some real incoming recently. i think his game plan for how to win this is wounded and, of course, if he doesn't win iowa, is he really not strong in new hampshire. >> unlike trump who is way ahead of the rest of the pack. >> trump appears to be way ahead. >> cruz has clearly taken off the gloves and so has trump. the pro-nance is officially over and cruz is going after trump. laughing that he has more enthusiasm that rong ever had had. he is doing it better than reagan ever did and here is
6:10 pm
cruz's response to that. >> donald did an interview where he described that he thinks he is bigger than ronald reagan. ronald reagan did not spend the first 60 years of his life supporting democratic politicians. reagan was a voice of consistency. and i'm pretty sure that ronald reagan didn't write checks and support democratic politicians like andrew cuomo, like weiner, like hillary clinton. mr. trump spartan you had the stimulus plan and said only problem is it should have been bigger. >> going after him on stimulus and tarp and bank bailout and so on. your thoughts? >> i would say as a lot of these establishment party leaders look at this, they are hoping against hope that neither of them.
6:11 pm
as populace are a trump says5úyu and they are worried that neither of them could be elected. >> can i just ask you quickly before i let you go, brit. the iowa governor came out today and said don't vote for cruz, whatever you do. scale on 1 to 10, how important is that? >> well, it's important to the people in iowa who care about that ethanol subsidy, and cruz, to his great credit, in my opinion, has resisted that and a wants to phase it out. and that's what terry branstad, the republican governor of iowa was complaining about. i think that cruz is probably taking whatever hit he is going to take on that and this probably won't make that much difference. >> brit, it's always great to see you. >> thanks, megyn. >> we miss him when the spring comes. put the suit back on. in moments governor jeb bush will be here to about trump, iowa and the debate a week from thursday. stunning new poll in the democratic race and big news breaking in her email scandal. a real problem for her.
6:12 pm
and then, growing outrage over reports the pentagon may demote general david petraeus. you know, the man who led our successful surge in iraq. it's only on the kelly file when we come back. >> i regret and apologize for the circumstances that led to my resignation fromja the cia and caused such pain for my family, friends, and supporters. time. and 2% back at the grocery store. even before she got 3% back on gas, all with no hoops to jump through. katie used her bankamericard cash rewards credit card to stay warm and toasty during the heat of competition. that's the comfort of rewarding connections. apply online or at a bank of america near you. where you can savor 2 of 7 new and classic creations

political correctness, kind of like a suicide vest. and, enough is enough. >> sarah palin going for the two birds approach in iowa just a short time ago, endorsing the donald and
6:16 pm
taking swipes at both the g.o.p. at large and likely a few candidates in particular all in the same breath. joining me now former republican governor jeb bush. good to he so you. your reaction to not winning the saharan endorsement? -- sarah palin endorsement. >> we share a belief in the sanctity of life and rights of the disabled we worked together on those issues. i respect her for that voters are going to want to know who can beat hillary clinton. i have a proven record and detailed plans, conservative plans to be able to lay out agenda that can transform our country, washington, d.c. and transform our country in high economic growth and. >> she is over in that more tea party wing. >> i have 11 medal of honor recipients. 30 admirals and generals because i'm establishment or tea party. they support me because i
6:17 pm
could be commander and chief. we are getting the military and we don't have a strategy to deal with isis. i laid out that plan to do it and that's why they are supporting me. while i suspect sarah palin i don't think donald trump has the judgment or ideas to keep us safe. he has been all over the map. >> you say that you have worked on disabilities together. she has a son, of course, who has downs syndrome. you just released an ad last week for hitting trump for what appeared to be his mocking of a "new york times" reporter who has a birth detect calling him a jerk and found some juans that found the same they have children withw3 disabilities. are you surprise to do see the endorsement in light of that? >> he is on video doing it it's not a question that he didn't do it. the simple fact is you can't insult your way to the presidency. he is not going to beat hillary clinton. and, what we need to do is have a candidate that actually has a proven record. and my record is the most conservative record on the stage in terms of a proven
6:18 pm
record. not just talking about it but actually doing it and that's the message that i take to voters in iowa and new hampshire tonight. i'm finishing up some campaigning and i will be here for four days and it's resonating. can you see it slowly but surely the polls are moving in my favor. let's talk about that quick scan of the latest show shows you are in sixth in the real clear politics average. sixth in the des moines register latest poll out of iowa and sixth in the latest poll out of new hampshire, too. >> no, that's not true. we're. >> what are you seeing? >> the last poll i saw second place. jump ball second place four new hampshire? >> yeah, yeah. exactly. >> megyn, i don't know where you are getting these polls but the best ground game here resonating with. >> here it is. american research group and >> i only look at the polls that show me doing well.
6:19 pm
that's my strategy. >> that's the power of positive thinking. i believe in that, too. what about that, governor? >> you have got to believe in that. >> next week. >> you have got to believe in this. >> a week from this thursday, you and i will meet again. we will meet in iowa for the very last debate. >> yeah, i'm looking forward to it. >> for the iowa caucuses. there is so much pressure on you guys on these debates. do you have a different strategy? do you need to do something different before those caucuses? what's the goal? >> the goal for me is just to share my ideas about what we can could to lift our country up. i mean, 6% of americans couldn't pay for a car repair of $500 right now. they are living paycheck to paycheck. i get why people are angry. washington is not working. we need solutions rather than just saying how bad things are. and the front running candidate for president in our party doesn't have solutions and hillary clinton doesn't either. she would double down on the economic policies of barack obama. we need to dramatically change course by reforming and i have laid out these

detailed plans yesterday of a plan to eliminate the student loan program and move to a system that wouldn't be so burdensome for students. not free community college or free education but allow people to have a line of credit if you will and pay they earn going forward over the next 25 years. those are the kind of solutions that people want to hear. when i do my town hall meetings people don't ask me who is winning and who is losing. they want to know how they can win. that's what i offer is a winning solution. >> governor, look forward to seeing you next week. >> see you next week. thank you. >> big news for hillary clinton. first in a stunning new poll and second in a fox news exclusive on her email scandal and that news is not good. plus, a big employer is taking fire after saying no more2[ special prayer breaks for muslim employees. marther is on the case tonight.

6:53 pm
knees at noon. they did it fine for a while. excuse me. >> the tickle in your throat is costing your air time. mark, let me ask you. the employer is under an obligation to offer a reasonable accommodation. it's up to the employer to decide is it reasonable for me to stop the work flow at the company involving these 53 muslim employees so that they can pray twice a day? >> right. i think arthur's tickle was him avoiding established >> who hasn't used that in court? >> well, in 2015, a federal court ruled against somali muslims who sued a meat packing plant in nebraska and found that it was an unscheduled prayer breaks it effects productivity. >> the court never said unscheduled prayer breaks. >> that's what it says, arthur. >> megyn, a schedule comes out the first of every month that tells the muslim faith
6:54 pm
when exactly to pray. they know. the thing that doesn't ring drew here, this company ran efficiently with these 53 muslim employees doing this for quite some time and now all of a suddennible now this is a politically hot potato the whole muslim issue. now they -- >> -- assembly line. hold on, what happens is, hey lou, hey, bob, i'm going to take another prayer break. i'm sure you won't mind picking up my slack several times a day for no extra pay. you don't think that might create some issues. >> they are irritated, their. what the company owner, youjtqiy it sounds like ariens. they want to make clear it's ariens. the owner, whatever, is saying that the other employees were complaining, arthur, that they were saying there is 10 of us on assembly line. you need 10. two keep wanting to leave.
