JESSE WATTERS, DANA PERINO IS

BACK, AND A DAGEN McDOWELL.

"THE FIVE."

THERE IS ONLY ONE THING NANCY

LOVES MORE THAN GELATO, LAWYERS.

IN A YEAR WHERE MILLIONS OF

AMERICANS SHOULD UNITE AND SPIKE

A GLOBAL VIRUS, HER INSTINCT IS

TO PROTECT THE LAWYERS BY VOWING

TO BLOCK LIABILITY PROTECTIONS

FOR EMPLOYERS IN THE NEXT RELIEF

PACKAGE.

HERE IT IS.

>> WHAT WE WILL NOT SUPPORT US

THE FOLLOWING.

WHAT THEY ARE SAYING TO

ESSENTIAL WORKERS, YOU HAVE TO

GO TO WORK BECAUSE YOU ARE

ESSENTIAL, WE PLACE NO

RESPONSIBILITY ON YOUR EMPLOYER

TO MAKE THAT WORKPLACE SAFE, AND

IF YOU GET SICK, YOU HAVE NO

RECOURSE, BECAUSE WE HAVE GIVEN

YOUR EMPLOYER PROTECTION.

AND IF YOU DONT GO TO WORK

BECAUSE YOU ARE AFRAID OF BEING

SICK AND YOU HAVE THAT JOB

OPPORTUNITY, YOU DONT GET

UNEMPLOYMENT INSURANCE.

THIS IS SO UNFAIR.

>> Greg: SO WAIT, WE PLACE NO

RESPONSIBILITY ON THE EMPLOYERS

TO MAKE THE WORKPLACE SAFE?

WHERE THE HILL HAS SHE BEEN?

HIDING UNDERGROUND WITH JOE?

THE GUY WHO READ RIP VAN WINKLE

AND MADE IT HIS POLITICAL

PLAYBOOK.

UNLESS YOU HAVE BEEN

REFRIGERATED LIKE DELICIOUS MINT

CHOCOLATE CHIP FOR SEVEN MONTHS,

YOU HAVE SEEN AN AMAZING

COMMITMENT TO ENSURE SAFETY.

LETS NOT ASSUME PEOPLE WHO WANT

TO GET BACK TO WORK ARE BEING

IRRESPONSIBLE, THEY ARE MAKING

ADULT DECISIONS STRUGGLING TO

SAVE THEIR LIVELIHOOD.

LIVELIHOOD PROTECTION INSISTS TO

ALLOW CIVILIZATION AND ENOUGH

TIME TO RESTART BEFORE THE

LAWYERS CARVE UP THE CARCASS.

AND WE.

IF A BUSINESS DOES NOT MAKE SURE

THAT IT IS SAFE FOR EMPLOYEES,

ITS NOT GOING TO BE SAFER

CUSTOMERS.

ANY IDIOT CAN FIGURE THAT OUT.

BUT NANCY IS NOT JUST ANY IDIOT,

SHE IS A LEFT-WING DEMOCRAT,

HOLDING LEFT-WING LAW FORMS

SHOVING 80% OF THEIR DONATIONS

INTO HER PARTYS POCKET.

AND BECAUSE LAWYERS KNOW THAT

THEY CAN MAKE BILLIONS ON COVID

LITIGATION, WHO CARES IF IT CAN

KEEP SMALL BUSINESSES FROM

RETURNING TO WORK EVER.

WHICH IS WHY SHE PIVOTS TO A HOT

SHOT.

>> LETS JUST GET TO THE HEART

OF IT.

THE POINT OF ALL OF THIS IS THIS

PRESIDENT, I HAVE A NEW NAME FOR

HIM, MR. MAKE MATTERS WORSE.

HE HAS MADE MATTERS WORSE FROM

THE START, DELAY, DENIAL, THE

HOAX, THE MIRACLE, AND ALL THE

REST.

AND WE ARE IN THE SITUATION

WHERE YOU SAW SOME OF THE

NUMBERS VERY CLEARLY EARLY.

>> Greg: THAT WAS PAINFUL,

LETS POINT OUT, NANCY GAVE NO

PRACTICAL ADVICE ON DEALING WITH

THE PANDEMIC.

SHE CURRENTLY LAID LOW AND THEN

WAITED TO ARMCHAIR QUARTERBACK

MUCH LATER.

IF SHE HAD ALL THE ANSWERS TO

THE VIRUS, SHE MUST HAVE KEPT

THEM TO HERSELF.

THAT MAKES HER THE REAL VILLAIN

HERE, AND SOMEONE WHO MIGHT HAVE

MORE THAN JUST RUM RAISIN ON HER

HANDS.

ALL RIGHT, DANA, WELCOME BACK TO

THE SHOW.

YOU WERE MISSED.

>> Dana: THANK YOU.

THANK YOU.

I DONT LIKE RUM RAISIN, I THINK

THAT IS THE WORST ICE CREAM OF

ALL ICE CREAMS.

>> Greg: IT IS.

THATS WHY ASSUME THAT

NANCY PELOSI WOULD BE EATING IT,

BECAUSE SHE SEEMS LIKE A RUM

RAISIN TYPE.

WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF HER DISK

CONDITION, SHE ROADBLOCKS THESE

PACKAGES.

AND OUR OBVIOUS REPLY WOULD BE,

OF COURSE SAFETY IS OUR CONCERN.

WE ARE NOT IDIOTS!

>> Dana: ITS ALSO NOT TRUE.

SO THERE IS THAT, WAS IT ABOUT

EIGHT WEEKS AGO, MAYBE EVEN MORE

THAT YOU DID A MONOLOGUE BASED

ON A "WASHINGTON POST" ARTICLE

THAT BASICALLY LISTED ALL OF THE

LAWSUITS THAT HAVE BEEN UP UNTIL

THEN AND IT HAD ONLY BEEN ABOUT

SIX WEEKS AND WE HAVE BEEN

DEALING WITH THE PANDEMIC.

SO IMAGINE BETWEEN THEN AND NOW

HOW MANY WE HAVE AND YOU ARE

ABOUT TO SEE A LOT MORE, TALK

ABOUT, I THINK ABOUT ADDICTIONS

AND COMMERCIAL REAL ESTATE, NOT

TO MENTION REALTORS.

YOU HAVE SO MANY SMALL

BUSINESSES LIKE HAIR SALONS, FOR

EXAMPLE, THEY HAVE HAD TO BUY

AND INVEST, PUT MONEY INTO

GETTING THE PLEXIGLASS ORGANIZED

SO THAT THEY CAN REOPEN, MAKING

SURE THAT THEIR EMPLOYEES HAVE

ENOUGH MASKS, AND THEY HAVE HAD

TO LIMIT THEIR HOURS FOR CERTAIN

EMPLOYEES.

THEY DONT WANT TO BE SUED.

THEY DONT WANT AS YOU SAID,

THEY DONT WANT THE LIABILITY OF

SOMETHING TO GO WRONG, BECAUSE

THEIR ENTIRE LIVELIHOOD IS

WRAPPED UP IN THEIR BUSINESS.

AND SO, THIS BILL THAT

McCONNELL IS PUTTING FORWARD

DOES NOT SAY THAT A BUSINESS

DOES NOT HAVE TO DO ANYTHING TO

ENSURE SAFETY, IT SAYS THAT IT

DOES.

IT IS SPECIFICALLY IT ABOUT

FRIVOLOUS LAWSUITS, AND ONE

THING THAT NANCY PELOSI AND THE

DEMOCRATS DID RIGHT WAS THEY

ORGANIZED VERY EARLY.

THEY KNEW THAT THERE WAS GOING

TO BE ANOTHER ROUND OF STIMULUS.

THEY SET SOME BOUNDARIES FOR

WHAT THEY WERE GOING TO BE FOR,

AND THEY ARE HOLDING ON LIKE RED

ROVER, RED ROVER, SENATE BILL

RIGHT OVER AND THEY WILL

PROBABLY REJECT IT.

AND THE PRESIDENT NEEDS A BILL.

SO THESE NEGOTIATIONS WILL NOT

BE PRETTY AND IT WILL BE VERY,

VERY EXPENSIVE, BUT IT IS AN

INVESTMENT THAT WE NEED TO MAKE

TO MAKE THE ECONOMY COME BACK,

GET PEOPLE SAFE, AND AT THE

SCHOOLS BACK AS WE TRY TO STAY

HEALTHY.

AND THANK YOU FOR MY TED TALK.

>> Greg: THERE YOU GO.

I COULD TELL THAT YOU WERE

WAITING.

DAGEN, WHAT DO YOU MAKE OF THIS?

>> Dagen: IF YOU ARE CYNICAL,

WHICH I AM, THIS IS A WAY FOR

THE DEMOCRATS TO KEEP

UNEMPLOYMENT ABOVE 10% OR EVEN

HIGHER GOING INTO THE NOVEMBER

ELECTION.

SO HERE IS THE WAY PLAYS OUT,

YOU MAKE PEOPLE MORE DEPENDENT

ON THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT, YOU

DENY ANY LIABILITY PROTECTION

FOR BUSINESSES, AND THEY CANNOT

BRING PEOPLE BACK ON THE JOB.

THEY CANT HIRE NEW WORKERS.

YOU CONTINUE THE $600 EXTRA PER

WEEK, WHICH, BY THE WAY, WHEN

TWO-THIRDS OF THE PEOPLE ON

UNEMPLOYMENT ACCORDING TO THE

UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO ARE MAKING

MORE ON UNEMPLOYMENT THAN THEY

DID IN THEIR JOBS.

SO THEY STAY ON UNEMPLOYMENT,

THEY DONT GO BACK TO WORK.

AND THEN YOU ALSO HAVE NO SCHOOL

REOPENING.

SO ALL OF THE MOMS OUT THERE OR

EVEN DADS HAVE TO STAY AT HOME

AND TAKE CARE OF THEIR KIDS,

THEY CANT GO BACK TO WORK.

YOU LITERALLY WIPE OUT A

GENERATION OF GAINS IN THE

WORKFORCE FOR WOMEN, BUT AGAIN,

IT BENEFITS THE DEMOCRATS,

BECAUSE IT LOOKS LIKE THE

ECONOMY, PARDON MY LANGUAGE

SUCKS, AND BY THE WAY, IF THIS

IS THE BEST THAT THE DEMOCRATS

HAVE TO THROW BARS AT TERM, THIS

IS A RICH OCTOGENARIAN LIMOUSINE

LIBERAL, AND THATS THE BEST

THEYVE GOT, WHAT ARE YOU GOING

TO DO?

HIT TRUMP WITH THE POCKETBOOK

NEXT?

>> Greg: YOU KNOW, SPEAKING OF

THE PRESIDENT, JUAN, I WANT TO

PLAY SOME TAPE, TALKING ABOUT

THE DEATH RATE THAT WE DONT

HEAR ENOUGH ABOUT, TAKE IT AWAY.

SPEAK OF THE MORTALITY RATE FOR

PATIENCE OVER THE AGE OF 18 IS

85% LOWER THAN IT WAS IN APRIL,

THINK OF THAT.

85%.

AND 25% LOWER THAN EUROPE AS A

WHOLE.

>> Greg: SO THATS GOOD NEWS,

JUAN, RIGHT?

>> Juan: I AM ALL FOR IT.

I DONT WANT ANYBODY TO DIE.

SO THATS GOOD NEWS.

I THINK AT THE DASH THE

COUNTERPOINT, GREG, WOULD BE

THAT WE SEE AN INCREASING NUMBER

OF NOT ONLY DEATHS, BUT YOU

KNOW, CORONAVIRUS INFECTION.

BUT TO GET BACK TO YOUR ISSUE

ABOUT THE LIABILITY, I MEAN,

ITS NOT UNCOMMON FOR PEOPLE TO

HAVE TWO SIGN WAIVERS IF THEY

ARE DOING VOLUNTARY ACTIVITIES,

LIKE IF YOU ARE GOING SKYDIVING,

YOU KNOW?

OR YOU ARE GOING TO A TRUMP

RALLY IN TULSA IN THE MIDST OF A

CORONAVIRUS EPIDEMIC.

SO WE SEE PEOPLE ASKED TO SIGN

THOSE TYPES OF LEADERS.

THE DIFFERENCE HERE, I DONT

THINK THAT IT IS SO MUCH

POLITICAL, EXCEPT, YOU ARE

RIGHT.

OBVIOUSLY DEMOCRATS AND

REPUBLICANS ON CAPITOL HILL HAVE

A DIFFERENCE OF OPINION.

BUT I DONT THINK IT IS SO

POLITICAL AND A SENSE THAT YOU

HAVE PEOPLE CONCERNED ABOUT

ACTIVITIES THAT THEY HAVE TO DO,

WHICH IS GO TO WORK OR BE A

CUSTOMER FOR A BUSINESS, AND

THEY WANT TO FEEL SAFE.

THEY WANT TO BE SURE THAT ANY

BUSINESS IS MAKING EVERY EFFORT

TO PROTECT THEIR WELL-BEING.

AND I THINK WHAT YOURE SEEING

THE CONTRARY POINT FROM THE

DEMOCRATS IS YOU CANT PASS A

LIABILITY WAIVER THAT FREES

BUSINESS FROM MAKING THE

CUSTOMER SAFETY, WORKER SAFETY A

PRIORITY.

THEY WANT TO MAKE SURE IT.

AND I THINK THAT THAT IS THE

HEART AND SOUL OF WHAT IS GOING

ON HERE, THE CONTRARY IDEA THAT

SOMEHOW YOURE JUST LETTING

PEOPLE RUN WILD, I THINK THAT

PEOPLE WANT TO GO BACK TO WORK.

I THINK THAT PEOPLE WANT TO DO

BUSINESS.

I THINK THAT WE ARE ALL ANXIOUS

FOR IT.

BUT WE WANT TO BE SAFE.

THATS ALL.

>> Greg: JESSE, I THINK THAT

WE ALL HAVE GONE OVER THOUGH WE

WANT TO BE SAFE ARGUMENT TO A

POINT THAT WE ARE TRYING TO GET

TO THE NEXT STEP.

WE ASSESS THE RISKS AND THE

BENEFITS, WE ARE ALL ADULTS.

NOBODY WANTS TO GET HURT.

>> Jesse: I AGREE WITH JUAN ON

ONE THING THAT SKYDIVING IS AS

THRILLING AS GOING TO A TRUMP

RALLY.

THAT WAS A VERY ASTUTE.

ON DAGEN McDOWELL, IM NOT AS

CYNICAL AS DAGEN.

I DONT THINK NANCY PELOSI WOULD

DESTROY THE COUNTRY JUST TO GET

JOE BIDEN ELECTED.

YES, IT LOOKS LIKE THAT BY

SHUTTING THE ECONOMY DOWN AND

OPENING UP THE BORDERS, BUT I

THINK THAT MAYBE PERHAPS SHE IS

JUST MORE CROOKED, BECAUSE SHE

IS STRESSED IN THE POCKET OF

TRIAL LAWYER LOBBY.

BECAUSE THATS WHO WINS.

IF BUSINESSES ARE NOT PROTECTED

AND YOU TEST POSITIVE FOR

COVID-19, YOU CALL A LAWYER, AND

THEN YOU JUST MAKE A LIST OF ALL

THE PLACES YOU WENT IN THE LAST

WEEK, AND THEN YOU SUE YOUR

GROCERIES GOING BACK

GROCERY STORE, YOUR PHARMACY,

AND YOUR BOSS.

AND THEN THE BUSINESSES BACK UP,

THEY ARE GONE, THE ONLY ONES

THAT REMAINED OPEN, THEN THEY

ARE BANKRUPT AFTER ALL OF THIS

MASS LITIGATION.

AND I CANT BELIEVE TO WATCH

NANCY, BECAUSE I REMEMBER

WATCHING JOHN BOEHNER, THE

PREVIOUS SPEAKER, REMEMBER, HE

USED TO GO ON THE SUNDAY SHOWS

AND THEY WOULD THROW RAZOR

BLADES AT THE GUY, NANCY PELOSI

GETS UP THERE, AND SHE IS

TREATED LIKE ANGELINA JOLIE

PROMOTING A MOVIE, RIGHT?

IT IS A SOFTBALL SITUATION, AND

THEN THERE ARE QUESTIONS AND

AREAS THAT YOU ARE NOT ALLOWED

TO ASK ABOUT.

IN THE NICKNAME DEAL IS IRONIC,

BECAUSE SHE IS REALLY THE LEADER

OF THE DO-NOTHING CONGRESS.

THEY HAVE DONE NOTHING EXCEPT

IMPEACH THE PRESIDENT WHICH JUST

DISTRACTED WASHINGTON FROM THE

PANDEMIC, AND WE HAD THIS GREAT

MOMENT IN THIS COUNTRY WHERE WE

COULD HAVE HAD UNITY, WHERE WE

COULD HAVE FOUGHT AGAINST A

COMMON ENEMY, THE VIRUS AND THE

CHINESE COMMUNIST PARTY, AND SHE

JUST THREW IT ALL AWAY AND MADE

TRUMP THE ENEMY.

AND YOU KNOW, LIKE A DAD, I AM
