JUAN WILLIAMS, FOX NEWS HOST: Whats up, everybody. I am Juan Williams together with Jesse Watters, Dana Perino, Greg Gutfeld, and Emily Compagno. It is 5 o’clock in New York Metropolis, and that is The 5.

An enormous hour of reports coming your method at the moment. President Trump in one other key swing state. He simply wrapped up a gathering with Florida police and touted his legislation and order message. The president additionally anticipated to offer an replace on the federal response to the coronavirus and the hurricane that is bearing down on Florida. That is all arising.

However first, the president refusing to again down over his feedback concerning the election and mail-in ballots. Have a look.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

DONALD TRUMP, PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES: The absentee ballots are literally an excellent factor. Absentee ballots are safe and they’re excellent however common mail-in are a catastrophe. You are going to see an election that — and we’ll do nicely within the election.

No person desires that date greater than me. I want we might transfer it up, OK. Transfer it up. You will not know the election outcomes for weeks, months, perhaps years after. Possibly you will by no means know the election outcome and that is what I am involved with. Will probably be mounted and it is going to be rigged.

These governors are going to ship out thousands and thousands of ballots. They do not even know the place they’re sending them.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

WILLIAMS: Dana, you understand, I assume everyone is simply type of curious as to what the basis of his concern is. 5 states presently permit mail-in voting. No reviews of issues. I am speaking about Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon, Utah, and Washington. Oregon has had 5 presidential elections with no issues. Colorado, they noticed a Senate seat flit from Democrat to Republican with mail-in voting.

So, what do you suppose the president is frightened about? Why is he sowing this mistrust within the election course of?

DANA PERINO, FOX NEWS HOST: Nicely, all the states that you simply talked about and I believe Washington State particularly has had about 5 years to get their techniques in place and so they’ve labored out a number of kinks. It wasn’t good at the start and I believe what the president is saying is that we all know that due to coronavirus, persons are involved about how they will vote.

We all know that a number of ballot staff that volunteer, they’re usually senior residents. They don’t seem to be essentially going to need to be out and about. We have already seen the issue with that. There’s fewer polling locations and we all know that folks even have wished and began demanding extra mail-in choices.

Now, the excellence between absentee voting and mail-in voting is that with absentee in most states you must, as a citizen, ask for a poll. Within the mail-in situation, mainly it might be like everyone in the entire city or the entire state will get a poll. After which you may see issues that occur and this does occur the place you’ve even like PPP loans or the stimulus checks find yourself going to a resident who’s not residing in that exact place.

So, it simply takes some time, I believe for a few of these states to get these items in place. The secretaries of state throughout the nation are in control of the elections of their states and so they have been engaged on it.

However I believe the opposite factor that now we have to begin to situation ourselves to grasp is we really could not know the vote outcomes on election evening. Now that may work within the president’s favor too presumably, proper? Like when you had army ballots which can be coming in from abroad, I assume that he would need these counted as nicely.

It is a advanced downside. We have to work out a strategy to all work on this collectively. It is necessary that now we have the vote, have it on November third, depend them precisely so that everyone can really feel that they’ve — that the vote integrity.

WILLIAMS: Sure, agree. Jesse, I used to be simply noticing that 70 p.c of People favor the choice of mail-in voting. So, I believed to myself I recall that President Trump voted by mail after which I came upon Invoice Barr, Vice President Pence, Press Secretary McEnany, Ivanka Trump, Melania Trump, Jared Kushner, Invoice Stepien, now the marketing campaign supervisor, all of them voted by mail, in some instances repeatedly. So, what is the situation right here?

JESSE WATTERS, FOX NEWS HOST: The difficulty is you do not need 140 million folks mailing in by the submit workplace their vote for the President of the US, Juan. I do not see why you do not perceive that.

I am glad the Democrats now agree that they do not need to delay the election. As a result of when you’ve got all mail-in voting, you are going to delay the election. It could be like tuning into American Idol on Tuesday evening to see who received after which ready one other three weeks to seek out out as a result of everyone mailed of their vote.

Come on. All people is aware of what is going on to occur. Should you get to a degree the place Joe Biden on election evening comes up a bit of brief, the Democrats are going to say, now we have all of those mail-in ballots that got here in a bit of late. And each vote should be counted then you definately’re simply going to have stockpiles of ballots the Democrats are going be counting beneath no supervision for weeks and weeks and weeks till they get the best sufficient votes so Joe Biden wins.

These items occur on a regular basis. It simply occurred in Paterson, New Jersey. They went all mail and 10 p.c of the votes have been disqualified and 4 folks have been convicted of poll fraud.

Juan, I generally go to my dad and mom’ home when they’re in Maine to gather their mail. My mother obtained her ballots within the mail. I might’ve stuffed it out and mentioned Anne Watters voters for Trump and ship it in. Do you belief the American folks, Juan? Critically.

Juan, you play golf. I do not know when you play golf. What number of occasions if you performed golf in your golf buddy discovered his ball within the woods? What number of occasions have you ever seen somebody parked in a handicap spot? We have watched for months folks breaking into shops and loot. Do you belief the American folks to not cheat? I do not.

I need to stroll right into a polling place, somebody trying my I.D. cross my identify off, go in and solely the machine and one different individual counts my vote that day. That is the one strategy to do it securely.

WILLIAMS: All proper. Greg, so, Vice President Biden, he, I believe they name his sub tweeting. You have to bear in mind I am an outdated man, Greg. Sub tweeting and he mentioned — he mentioned, you will not have to fret about my tweets after I’m president.

GREG GUTFELD, FOX NEWS HOST: Sure.

WILLIAMS: So, it appears to me like he’s saying hey, you understand, a part of the rationale to vote for me isn’t any drama, no extraneous distractions from tweets when you elect Joe Biden. What do you suppose?

GUTFELD: Nicely, initially, I need to thank Dana for being on the present at the moment. I do know that she was on her strategy to a – my little pony style get together however she determined she might cease right here and do the present.

OK. So, Biden tweets.

WATTERS: I like that sweater.

GUTFELD: Biden tweets, you do not have to fret about it. You do not have to fret about it. I ought to discuss. I am sporting a t-shirt. You do not have to fret about his tweets if he is president. He is proper. You will not must be frightened about that. It’s important to be frightened about whether or not he wears pants to a briefing or debriefing in his case.

And I am really OK, I am really OK with Trump tweeting as a result of the trade- off is healthier. Like I’d fairly have a man who’s on Twitter than a man who’s like into army intervention all around the world. We have not had a warfare, nor have we wanted to have a warfare.

So, I type of like the truth that now we have a president who’s obtained an itchy set off finger on Twitter and never an itchy set off finger with worldwide battle.

However I do need to contact on the subject of at the moment which is the legislation and order. As a result of now we have Trump speaking about it. I believe his stance is working as a result of the Biden pleasant media has stopped displaying movies of chaos and homicide. As a result of that method when you do not see the crime and dysfunction, you may be much less seduced by the legislation and order place.

However the way in which it is not rioting. Its efficiency artwork. So, the media technique is to get you to suppose that Trump is promoting you one thing that you do not want. Like a bicycle on your ferret when actually what he is attempting to promote you is safety for your loved ones.

WILLIAMS: OK. So, Emily, let’s decide up on that. As a result of the president was getting endorsements from legislation and order police associations in Florida, sheriff’s associations. However, you understand, the query is, is the technique working? He is presently trailing in Florida and all of the swing states and nationally. Is that this technique paying off?

EMILY COMPAGNO, FOX NEWS HOST: Nicely, I believe technique and selections which have our greatest pursuits in thoughts are two various things. And the rationale that he now has such strong help by legislation enforcement is, quote, as they put it, “as a result of they’re sick of getting used as a punching bag.” And the media’s vilification of quote, unquote, ” conservatives” who’re calling this violence on the streets a warfare and saying downplaying the violence and downplaying the destruction does nobody any good. Technique apart.

I need to make one level concerning the mail-in voting if I can. Because the legal professional on the panel, I actually like when courts make the selections for us and settle it as soon as and for all. And we all know the U.S. Supreme Court docket got here out the summer time with two rulings, and the entire of the mess coming from Texas. Proper?

However there’s a complete host of various lawsuits, federal and state, throughout the nation. As a result of as you identified at first and as Dana did, that there’s conflicting legislation whether or not or not everybody can mail — can vote by mail across the nation.

Within the Texas scenario, the Supreme Court docket solely denied that it is getting quick monitor and in addition declined to reinstate the order by a decrease federal choose making use of that eligibility to everybody. And my level is there’s an opportunity that that may make its method again as much as them at its full courtroom listening to by the point now we have that normal election. However I believe the logistical nightmare of the execution if the entire nation participated for the primary time in a normal election can’t be ignored.

WILLIAMS: OK-doke. Up subsequent, a contentious coronavirus listening to. See the change between Congressman Jim Jordan and Dr. Anthony Fauci proper right here on The 5.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

COMPAGNO: Prime well being officers testifying on Capitol Hill at the moment. Democrats desperately attempting to get them to criticize President Trump’s pandemic response however they would not take the bait.

And this second from Congressman Jim Jordan and Dr. Anthony Fauci getting a number of consideration. Have a look.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

DR. ANTHONY FAUCI, DIRECTOR, NATIONAL INSTITUTE OF ALLERGY AND INFECTIOUS DISEASES: I do not choose one crowd versus one other crowd. If you’re in a crowd notably when you’re not sporting a masks, that on this unfold —

REP. JIM JORDAN (R-OH): But it surely’s a easy query, physician. Ought to we restrict the protests?

FAUCI: I do not know what number of occasions I can reply that. I am not going to opine on limiting something, I am simply going to let you know —

(CROSSTALK)

JORDAN: You have got opined on a number of issues, Dr. Fauci.

FAUCI: Sure, however I’ve by no means mentioned one thing —

(CROSSTALK)

JORDAN: That is one thing that instantly impacts the unfold of the virus and I am asking your place on the protest.

FAUCI: Sure. I mentioned crowds. I did not say particularly. I did not say protests do something —

(CROSSTALK)

JORDAN: So, the protests do not enhance the unfold of the virus?

FAUCI: I did not say that. You are placing phrases in my mouth.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

COMPAGNO: Jesse, I might like to start out with you. So, in rooting towards Trump, are we seeing Democrats right here blurring the strains between cheering on his perceived administration’s failure and cheering on the virus?

WATTERS: Nicely, I believe that is a notion amongst some folks however man, Fauci had a troublesome stretch. I imply, first the wild first pitch then getting grilled by Jim Jordan. I’d not need to be getting grilled by Jim Jordan. That man is tenacious. I believe he proved a fairly strong level that pay attention, we all know Fauci is a Democrat. We all know he is a really good man and he is doing the most effective he can. However he looks like he is taking part in favorites generally.

You are like, why cannot he simply name it a protest? Why rhetorically does he must make the excellence that it is only a crowd? As a result of going to church and protesting continues to be lined beneath the primary modification. They need to be handled equally. And he has opined on plenty of issues.

Courting. He has opined on sports activities reopening, faculties reopening, journey, companies. He has finished a number of opining after which for him to not need to opine on Black Lives Matter protests simply looks like, I simply do not know whether or not he is calling balls and strikes. That is my level. However the truth that Fauci —

(CROSSTALK)

COMPAGNO: OK. However —

WATTERS: — is a political pinata at this level makes me really feel like issues are getting again to regular a bit of bit. Not less than we are able to all hope.

COMPAGNO: Dana, have been you going to say one thing?

PERINO: Sure. So, we began this section by saying that Fauci would not take the Democrats’ bait to diss the Trump administration and in reality praised the Trump administration’s coronavirus response. However then he does not take the bait with Jim Jordan after which that is not good.

I believe that the purpose he was making is that he’s simply not taking the bait. He is attempting to be skilled. He knew he was going to get baited into speaking about protests and he did not need to. He talked about — so he was attempting to make a distinction about crowds in order that he can preserve his credibility as the general public well being individual throughout the board.

Now if I have been the Republicans, if I’ve the headline that Fauci, Redfield, and Giroir all say and praised the Trump coronavirus response, I would depart it at that as a result of that may be the headline that I’d’ve wished. So go away this listening to with as a result of that is what, you understand, that is what the Democrats did not need. The Democrats referred to as the listening to and so they obtained the headline they did not need to. I’d have simply left it at that.

COMPAGNO: So, Greg, taking {that a} step additional then, this was presupposed to be a options targeted listening to, proper, after which as all the time it devolves right into a partisan train. Is that this simply going to worsen as we head towards the overall election?

GUTFELD: Nicely, first, I want to apologize to Dana Perino for making that my little pony reference to her shirt. I understand that it is extra like an — I understand that it is extra like an commercial for fruit stripes gum.

PERINO: Good one. Good one.

GUTFELD: That is why I solely put on black. You understand, a fruit stripe is the most effective gum ever and I do not even know in the event that they make it anymore.

All proper, focus. He was speaking about options and that is the factor I hate about hearings. We have been listening to out proper now. I all the time marvel if we did not televise the hearings, would all of those folks really get stuff finished? As a result of what occurs is it looks like they’re all auditioning to be on a cable discuss present.

They’re like, I’m going to actually zing this man and make him look silly after which I’ll have a extremely humorous joke. And do not forget that girl that got here up with that horrible joke about Barron Trump. It is as a result of she knew she was on TV.

And so, what TV does is it turns into this hyper drama and also you really do not hear about options. And I preserve, I mentioned this yesterday in a pleading thought. There’s a number of stuff that is staying open. You are speaking about locations like Lowe’s however you are additionally speaking about day care facilities.

So why cannot we get knowledge on sicknesses or unfold of sicknesses from these locations and see how successfully they preserve folks secure, particularly day care facilities since you do not hear, you do not hear quite a bit about that. And I am actually curious. We might get a number of actually modern concepts and get them on the market to the school rooms and that may be a great factor. Particularly for a child who likes to put on colourful sweaters.

COMPAGNO: So, Juan, taking a pair factors that Dana simply made, is it attainable for Democrats to acknowledge the place this administration has succeeded of their response. Like for instance, we all know that Joe Biden got here out and talked about 4 issues he would do in a different way and this administration had really labored on all 4 of these issues.

So there appears to be a disconnect between that acknowledgment and what’s popping out of Democrats mouths and positively what we noticed at the moment within the listening to.

WILLIAMS: I believe I will need to have heard Joe Biden a bit of in a different way, Emily. I believe he was fairly clear on steps that he would’ve taken, together with, you understand, ensuring that the hospitals had all of the gear they wanted. Being way more aggressive about tracing, and so they’re like, early on and never downplaying the severity of the virus.

So, I believe that is what Joe Biden mentioned. And I believe it is clear. It is like two-thirds of People now disapprove of President Trump’s dealing with. However the query I believe on the desk is about protests and Fauci. And so, I used to be desirous about this.

What strikes me is that this. That in a state like Florida the place the president is at the moment, we have seen Florida at the moment set a file by way of COVID deaths. A single day file. They did not have the massive protests. Locations like New York, Chicago, L.A. had large protests. D.C. right here the place I reside.

And guess what, throughout the 14-day expanse of time when folks say you are going to see an uptick within the virus, it did not occur. However now we’re seeing outbreaks in locations the place there wasn’t a number of protesting over black lives matter. And I believe it is type of, old-school at this level saying, sure, the protests have been going to be the issue. That hasn’t confirmed to be the issue. That is a truth at this level.

WATTERS: Can I simply say one factor?

(CROSSTALK)

COMPAGNO: However we did —

WATTERS: I need to simply point out one thing that Juan mentioned. If Joe Biden mentioned he would’ve gotten the PPE to the hospitals sooner, was that PPE coming from the stockpile that he left empty with Barack Obama? Was that the PPE that he left —

(CROSSTALK)

WILLIAMS: He did not —

WATTERS: — let go offshore to China and do nothing about?

WILLIAMS: You understand, you’re so flawed.

WATTERS: I simply do not perceive how he was going to get that PPE —

WILLIAMS: You are so flawed, Jesse.

WATTERS: — to the hospitals sooner.

WILLIAMS: Jesse, that is like — Jesse, this jogs my memory of Trump, the Trump administration saying, the Obama administration —

(CROSSTALK)

COMPAGNO: Sorry, guys, now we have —

WILLIAMS: — left the cabinets naked. There was no report, no plan for dealing and in reality it was proper in entrance of them.

(CROSSTALK)

WATTERS: We’ll truth verify you after the break, Juan.

COMPAGNO: All proper, now we have to go, you guys sadly. And simply, Juan, to your level, bear in mind nevertheless a complete burst of nationwide guardsmen have been contaminated with the coronavirus. And for Portland, they’re nonetheless on day 60 of protesting so I do not suppose we all know fairly but what these ramifications are.

All proper, shifting on, arising, unique new paperwork detailing alleged abuse by Jeffrey Epstein’s former girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell. Particulars subsequent.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

WATTERS: New bombshell paperwork detailing alleged sexual abuse by Jeffrey Epstein’s former girlfriend Ghislaine Maxwell. The information are from a 2015 lawsuit filed by Virginia Roberts Giuffre towards Maxwell. They declare Maxwell abused many younger ladies on Epstein’s personal island. The paperwork additionally talked about Invoice Clinton.

Giuffre says she noticed the previous president on Epstein’s island with Maxwell and, quote, “two younger ladies.” However didn’t accuse him of any wrongdoing. A spokesperson for Clinton says it is a lie and he has by no means been to the island.

All proper. Simply earlier than we get to the whole lot, now we have a fact-check for Juan. USA At present, the Obama administration deplete the federal stockpile of N95 masks. Reality-check, true. Additionally, Washington State and Oregon —

WILLIAMS: Get out of right here.

WATTERS: — obtained spikes in instances. All proper. So, Juan, I need to ask you about Invoice Clinton as a result of that is now the second individual —

(CROSSTALK) WILLIAMS: hey, Jesse, Jesse, no, wait a second. Jesse, you say issues like that and then you definately simply run on prefer it’s true. Jesse, you did not see a spike within the 14 days after the protests.

WATTERS: USA At present.

WILLIAMS: And guess what, and guess what. no, I am simply telling you, it is the reality, no spike in these states after large protests.

(CROSSTALK)

WATTERS: OK. Individuals can look it up on the web.

WILLIAMS: After which secondly, there was an amazing preparation by the Obama administration —

WATTERS: All proper.

WILLIAMS: — made obtainable to the Trump administration.

WATTERS: Let’s go, Juan. You might be flawed. All proper. So, Invoice Clinton on Epstein island allegedly being accused of a intercourse trafficking sufferer, being on Epstein islands. He denies it. The second person who fingers him as being there. Does that concern you?

WILLIAMS: Involved me? Nicely, I believe that lots of people must reply questions on what occurred with Jeffrey Epstein, together with two presidents. However within the Clinton case, I only recently watched that Netflix documentary and so they have any person who was there who says he noticed Clinton on that island.

So, I believe it is not simply Clinton. It isn’t simply Trump. I believe lots of people together with a number of the legislation enforcement, the prosecutors in Florida, I believe they’ve quite a bit, quite a bit to reply for.

Now I’ll say this on a optimistic notice, Jesse, that I believe that this discovery course of and the prosecution is hopefully a step within the route of giving the victims some sense of justice. As a result of I believe as we become involved with all of the gossip concerning the celebrities and the highly effective elite males who keep away from justice, we should not lose deal with these younger ladies who have been abused.

WATTERS: I agree with that. That is a very powerful factor. All proper, Greg, what do you consider the brand new revelations from the deposition?

GUTFELD: Nicely, initially, I want to apologize for saying that Dana’s sweater will seem like an advert for Fruit Stripe Gum. It is really the sweater that Marcia Brady wore boy when she ran towards Greg Brady for pupil physique president. All proper, so —

PERINO: Did she win?

GUTFELD: Let’s discuss Invoice Clinton. By the way in which — I believe she — I believe she win or it was a tie. I can not bear in mind. However let’s stick with the information, OK. Let’s stick with the information, Dana. And the information is Trump was by no means on this island, so I do not know why Juan retains bringing in up Trump, however that is fantastic. So, Invoice Clinton claims he was not on the island, however he is recognized as being there. And if there’s one factor we learn about Invoice Clinton, he by no means ever lies about intercourse. So I believe we are able to belief him.

Now the query is, when you ask Invoice Clinton, is Invoice Clinton responsible? He will say it depends upon what your definition of is-is. And here is the place you get to the purpose. You’ll be able to’t spell island with out I-S.

WATTERS: Greg, that’s hermetic authorized jujitsu proper there. Emily —

GUTFELD: Thanks.

WATTERS: You understand, this can be a — this can be a discovery course of that I believe is simply at first is increasingly more information are unsealed, a number of redactions on this deposition. What do you make of at the moment’s information?

COMPAGNO: I want to make clear for viewers that that is from discovery and depositions from a 2018 defamation case by Virginia Giuffre towards Ghislaine Maxwell, proper. She got here out publicly and primarily mentioned Ghislaine Maxwell, by shaming me in public, you’ve defamed me, so that is all from that.

So, this is not new, that is simply new to us. It is also from the investigation by federal investigators within the 2008 delicate plea outcome from that federal investigation in Florida. So, what we’re seeing now could be the fruits of the choose in that — in that case, saying it is public curiosity to see all of this data.

Ghislain’s group tried actual onerous to maintain this beneath wraps. Additionally they are arguing and attempting for the discharge — the general public launch of all the sufferer’s names, which ought to serve — which ought to serve no public objective aside from for them to proceed embarking on this sufferer shaming ordeal.

So, I might like yours to maintain that each one in thoughts as a result of this — oh, and by the way in which, a number of that’s what the present investigation that resulted in prison expenses was based mostly on. So it is not like that is new now, it is simply new to us, however it’s all troubling. And bear in mind, energy is cash. We must always all care no matter get together about taking down anybody who participated in a global intercourse trafficking ring.

WATTERS: Sure, we must always comply with the reality wherever it leads. Dana, I imply, Marsha, Dana Perino, let’s end this section up.

PERINO: I obtained to say, I believed Fruit Stripe Gum was wonderful, Marcia Brady even higher. I hope he has one thing deliberate for the subsequent spherical. I’d simply point out one factor. Though that is from 2018, it did give us some new data or a contradiction. Lately, Ghislaine Maxwell had mentioned it had been over a decade since she had spoken to Epstein. On this — in these paperwork that have been revealed, there’s an e-mail between Maxwell and Epstein from 2015.

So the prosecutors maybe figuring out that that was there, after which stepping into to arrest her, knew that they’d one thing. So maybe having caught her presumably in a lie, she’ll be extra more likely to cooperate.

WATTERS: All proper, stick round. The “FASTEST SEVEN” is up subsequent on THE FIVE.

(COMMERCIAL BREAK)

PERINO: Nicely, welcome again. It is time for the “FASTEST SEVEN.” First up, Taylor Swift’s new album Folklore to smash hit due to songs like this.

(BEGIN VIDEO CLIP)

TAYLOR SWIFT, SINGER: A good friend to all is a good friend to none. Chase two ladies, lose the one. When you’re younger, they assume you understand nothing.

(END VIDEO CLIP)

PERINO: However not everybody loves the file as a lot because the Swifties would really like. A few of her tremendous followers launched a music critics tackle on-line and threatened to burn down her home for under giving the album an eight out of 10. I need to make it very clear I gave it a 10 out of 10.

Greg, her followers must get a duplicate of your ebook, The Plus. Placing folks’s private data on the web isn’t being a plus.

GUTFELD: No. And I spotted that I wasn’t being a plus, Dana, so I want to apologize for saying your sweater — saying that your sweater used to belong to Marcia Brady when she conceded the election to Greg Brady. I lastly realized why you put on that sweater. It is so no one notices if you’re consuming a rainbow lollipop on the present.

PERINO: I do love these. I do love these.

GUTFELD: So, perhaps we will not be winners. All of us cannot be winners.

PERINO: Jesse — we will not all be winners. Jesse, do your daughter’s love listening to Taylor Swift?

WATTERS: They do, however I need to stick up for one thing. I need to stick up for eight out of 10. Eight out of 10 for some folks is admittedly good. You understand, eight out of 10 at school may get it — put up on the fridge. So, let’s simply be sincere about eight out of 10, not displaying off, however not falling behind.

PERINO: Look, you understand, eight out of 10 for an album that you simply wrote in 4 months, Juan, that is fairly good.

WILLIAMS: I agree. What would that be? That’d be like an 80 in highschool. That is B, proper, so I imply, that is fairly good. And I do not suppose Taylor Swift’s followers are dissatisfied. However you understand, once more, you understand to not be heavy about this, however his is social media at its worst, you understand, doxing folks and the like. I simply suppose that is type of habits that would not happen if it was in-person. That is folks considering, you understand what, I am nameless. I am simply going to, you understand, be imply spirited, embarrass any person. I simply — that is the worst of social media.

PERINO: And I am assuming, Emily, that critic has no authorized recourse right here. I imply, as soon as her tackle is out, it is out.

COMPAGNO: Proper, and I imply, how would she pin it on the plenty? I do have to stay up for you, Dana. I really like your sweater. It appears implausible. And Greg loves it too. That is his method of displaying you. Last level, her piano when that video completely appears like The Goonies piano, you understand, the place they play the bones glowing and stuff.

WATTERS: Sure.

PERINO: It is fairly cool. It is fairly cool. All proper, I believe now we have time for an additional one. Up subsequent, most bars and golf equipment are closed due to the pandemic, you understand that however People are nonetheless getting their groove on at house. Three in 5, they’ve they’ve thrown a lockdown dance get together. So I need to know what’s THE FIVE’s final dance playlist. Juan, I’ve to imagine you’ve one off the highest of your head.

WILLIAMS: Nicely, I bear in mind when Raffi, my youngest, was a child he simply likes to play You Can Name Me Al. Do not forget that Paul Simon track? And my grandkids now, they like Comfortable, you understand that I really feel so pleased, you understand, that Pharrell William track.

PERINO: Sure.

WILLIAMS: However for extra of the grownup stuff, I believe it might be extra like you understand, Groove is within the Coronary heart. You understand, that type of factor. You understand, perhaps some Funkadelic. You understand, that type of factor.

PERINO: It is fairly good. I imply, I am impressed that you simply ready for this section. Emily, you must have some off the highest of your head too.

PERINO: Something by Whitney Houston or Janet Jackson.

PERINO: OK. It is fairly good. Jesse Watters, are you guys dancing there in Decrease Manhattan?

WATTERS: Sure, sure, I listened to Sizzling Women Summer time and I Need To Dance With Any person by Whitney Houston, and Billie Jean by Michael Jackson. These are my — that is on my playlist.

PERINO: It is excellent.

WATTERS: Something — my playlist is healthier than Greg’s playlist. That is all I do know.

PERINO: That is in all probability true. I’d give Greg’s playlist and eight out of 10. Greg?

GUTFELD: No, that is too excessive.

GUTFELD: Once I dance, I solely dance to Norwegian loss of life steel. And I urge everyone watching this present to go to YouTube and simply kind in Norwegian loss of life steel and to see what comes up. And I believe it will lighten and brighten your day.

COMPAGNO: Is not it that —

(CROSSTALK)

PERINO: All proper, I obtained yet another. So apparently, doing the dishes hundreds People up with a number of nervousness. A brand new examine finds the typical family has 217 fights a yr over who ought to clear up after dinner. We do not have a battle about who ought to clear up after dinner, however you understand, Peter thinks I do not load the dishwasher accurately. So, my resolution, Emily, has been I do not load it in any respect.

COMPAGNO: Precisely. That is as you shouldn’t. I prefer it. We have now whoever cooks, the opposite individual does the dishes, which I believe is an efficient factor.

PERINO: That is a great system. Jesse, I do know that Emma’s been cooking quite a bit. Are you doing the dishes?

WATTERS: I do. Emily and I’ve the identical system. So, I am principally doing the dishes as a result of I am not cooking as a lot. However to resolve the issue, paper plates folks, paper plates.

PERINO: That is not excellent for the atmosphere although, each time. They’re good for infrequently.

WATTERS: All proper, I believed I had a great level there.

So, we proceed to take very aggressive motion to fight the virus in Florida. And your state officers are wonderful. They have been working so onerous. The speed of optimistic instances in Florida has now declined. It is declining and hospitalizations are declining in most locations and fairly steadily, and we predict there’s going to be a giant decline beginning very quickly.

There’s presently over 21 p.c inpatient hospital mattress capability obtainable. So, there’s loads of mattress capability, and over 16 p.c ICU capability obtainable, and a few of that is going to be emptying out as folks get higher, they do get higher and so they get higher fairly quick. Statewide, we’re offering further assets and personnel to assist save lives. We stay involved about Florida about Miami and in a sure space of Miami particularly, however native officers are working very onerous. And we predict now we have that one in the best step additionally.

The check positivity fee has declined during the last week, and in some instances, very considerably as hospitalization ranges. However we should additional scale back the unfold and that is what we’re doing. We’re working carefully with well being officers on the bottom to help this effort. The one finest strategy to defeat the illness is private duty. You have heard me say it you’ve got heard lots of people say it really.

I urge all People to guard the aged. The actual fact is you must do the social distancing factor. It is essential to socially distance. Put on a masks if you can’t keep away from crowded locations or socially distance, and wash your palms as usually as attainable. Virtually half of all deaths nationwide have been in nursing houses and assisted residing facilities. And I’ve to say, the state of Florida with regard to the nursing houses, has finished an unbelievable job, actually an unbelievable job.

They watch what was taking place in some locations, even past their very own nation, the opposite nations, they have been seeing what was taking place with the aged, and notably in nursing houses. And Ron, you’ve got finished an awesome job in that. I recognize it.

I’ve to say that there is been a giant surge of the China virus in different nations, very large nations that we thought we — they have been doing a great job, and so they have been. They have been doing an awesome job in some instances. However large headline within the Wall Avenue Journal simply yesterday and an editorial that, hastily, they began to surge. So, nations that we thought have been doing nice turned out to have issue, large issue. I will not identify the nations however you understand them. There are a number of them really.

The common age of those that succumb to the virus is 78 years outdated. We’re additionally carefully monitoring the scenario in Latin America and its influence in the US. Latin America has extra confirmed instances than anyplace else on the planet, really considerably extra and having a tough time.

We have despatched many ventilators to Latin America. We have mentioned many ventilators to totally different nations in Europe, Africa, and all around the world. We’re making 1000’s of ventilators now a month. We began off with primarily little or no, and we develop into a ventilator producer, so to talk, and we’re serving to a number of — a number of nations.

We have despatched them to France, we have despatched them to Italy, quite a bit to Italy, we despatched him to Mexico, we ship him to Russia. Moscow is having an amazing downside. And we despatched them to a number of totally different nations, many. And now we have a full provide in our nation. The wonderful factor is we began with only a few and never one person who wanted a ventilator didn’t get a ventilator. In order that’s a fairly wonderful statistic.

We have now practically 1,400 federal personnel on the bottom already in Florida, together with personnel supporting nursing houses. We have now medical doctors, army medical doctors, they’re unbelievable and really proficient folks. And admittedly, they’re very courageous folks, however they’re all around the state serving to along with your medical of us. And Ron requested if we might get some further folks right here. We did it instantly.

Within the final week, we have opened 5 new surge testing websites in Florida, in Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood Seashore, Pompano Seashore and two in Miami. We’re sending speedy check kits to 701 Medicare and Medicaid licensed nursing houses within the state. We have additionally despatched a number of shipments of protecting gear to all the nursing houses.

And as I mentioned on ventilators, I can even discuss in Florida in Miami, they’ve the whole lot they want. They’ve — they do not want any. We have despatched quite a bit. They do not want any. Testing sensible we have examined virtually 60 million folks all through the nation, which is about six occasions greater than another nation, shut to 6 occasions greater than another nation.

We have now — when you take a look at India, they’re at 11 million. We’ll be at over 60 million. So that they’ve finished an amazing job in testing contemplating we began off with little or no. It was an unknown illness and it was an unknown check. FEMA, HHS and the personal sector have delivered greater than 10 million N95 masks, 43 million surgical masks, 19.7 million robes, and 1.three billion medical gloves to Florida, 1.three billion gloves, Ron.

We have secured 90 p.c of the world’s provide of Remdesivir which has been very, very profitable and have despatched to over 143 vials to Florida hospitals. That is actually one thing that is very particular and we’re engaged on very onerous. Operation Warp Velocity at the moment, we reached a $2 billion settlement with Sanofi and GSX to conduct medical trials and mass-produce 100 million doses of vaccine.

What we have finished is fairly unbelievable, I’ve to say. We have now many corporations, nice corporations, Johnson and Johnson, Merck, Pfizer. Many corporations are very near getting the vaccine. We expect it may be in a really brief time from now. And we’re set with our army to ship the vaccine.

We have now an amazing army supply service and that we’ll be doing it. It is referred to as logistics and they are going to be taking the vaccine and bringing it all around the nation. And I am certain it is going to be supplying it past our nation additionally, however we’ll have it very quickly. We’re additionally having great work finished on different therapies aside from vaccines. So, now we have a number of — a number of nice issues within the pipeline. I believe issues which can be going to be actually spectacular.

I am very enthusiastic about therapeutics as a result of therapeutically I believe now we have solutions which can be actually trying good. Actually, if I had my selection, I in all probability initially perhaps you go along with the therapeutics since you stroll into the hospital, they get a shot, or they do a transfusion, relying on the corporate and the — and what they’re doing, and a short while later, simply folks get higher. So we’re taking a look at that very, very strongly.

I simply need to thank Rick and Ron and everyone. They’ve finished actually a implausible job. We have labored collectively so lengthy and so onerous. And that is one thing that stumbled on us. It ought to have by no means occurred, however it stumbled on us. And there is been nice bravery from our medical doctors and our nurses, our frontline folks. And we’re very happy with what’s taking place and we’ll do away with it. We’ll beat it and it will be quickly.

We need to get our faculties open. We need to get our companies open. A lot of the nation is open. We have set information on variety of staff and hiring. And employment mainly, when you take a look at the quantity, I believe final month was the best quantity ever employed in a single month. And the month earlier than that, we broke that file. So, from that standpoint, we have finished nicely. Retail gross sales set a file final month.

So, we’re doing actually file enhance, so we’re doing rather well. And I believe this can finish hopefully very quickly, however we’re combating onerous, and we’re combating good. And I might prefer to ask your governor to say just a few phrases. Please, Ron.

GOV. RON DESANTIS (R-FL): Thanks, Mr. President. Welcome again to Florida. Thanks for all of your help. We’re monitoring very carefully the monitor of Hurricane Isaias. That is each the 11:00 a.m. and the 5:00 p.m. advisories from Nationwide Hurricane Heart, tacked it a bit of bit nearer to the Florida coast.

I believe it is fairly clear we’ll get at a minimal tropical storm power wind impacts, possible hurricane power wind impacts. We do not know for certain whether or not the attention will really in racked with the coast of Florida. We’re trying really in all probability northern a part of Palm Seashore County, perhaps a bit of bit north of that’s type of the place they are going. Clearly, we’ll know extra.

So, I’d simply urge Floridians simply notably when you’re from Deerfield Seashore up till the Brevard-Volusia space, you’re beneath a hurricane watch. Be sure to have your plan. Be sure to have seven days of meals and provides and medication. There may very well be some energy outages. And it is an ongoing, very fluid scenario.

Because it does transfer west that is type of weakening a tad. And if it strengthens, we predict it could find yourself going additional east. However simply proceed to hearken to your native officers. We’ll be offering updates a number of occasions a day all through the weekend. And clearly, the federal authorities’s been nice serving to. We did submit for landfall emergency declaration, so we stay up for that help.

And we additionally need to thank the administration for supporting us with the battle towards COVID-19. Anytime we wanted something, you understand, we might discuss to the president, vice chairman and we’d get it. So, when somebody — after we began to see the hospital admissions actually decide up, the medical doctors have been prescribing extra Remdesivir.

So, we advised them hey, you guys have been sending us sufficient for after we had very low census. Now that the census is greater, can we get extra — can we transfer up the shipments? And Alex was concerned, the president, we obtained it up and so we have accelerated plenty of weeks of shipments. So, they have been in a position to have the drugs that they want.

I additionally thank — you understand, CDC put out I believe necessary steering final Friday that did not actually get a lot consideration about folks going again to work. Quite a lot of employers in Florida had been — had been demanding a unfavourable PCR check with a view to return to work. CDC recommends towards that now and I believe that’s precisely the best factor in comparison with what we have seen.

These PCR assessments, you may check optimistic for 12 weeks. So, now we have folks that aren’t infectious, don’t have any reside virus, and so they’re getting a optimistic check 10 days, 20 days out. And so CDC recommends going to a symptom-based method. We’re — we have put that out within the state of Florida to all of the employers, the symptom-based method actually is the more practical method. And I believe that that may simply assist folks be capable to go.

Should you’re symptomatic and also you check optimistic, clearly, you understand, we’re inferring reside virus there, however the asymptomatic, you understand, 12-week window, and we actually do not know whether or not you are infectious or not. So, I believe what we’ll be doing due to what you guys have simply despatched us moreover, the wait occasions on the labs, it is simply gotten backed up. We’re doing so many assessments. Generally it takes seven to 10 days to get the outcomes again.

So, what we’ll do is we have already targeted on our symptomatic check takers, that are a minority of the folks testing. We have now agreements with labs to get a turnaround faster. After which the federal authorities has despatched us these level of care antigen assessments. So we’ll have 1,250 of these a day. So, we’ll convert a few of our larger check websites into level of care antigen testing for symptomatic and aged folks in all probability in Miami Dade.

So, this fashion they go, they get the lead to 15 minutes, which is sweet for them. After which it will get reported to the state.
