Live from New York City is FOX & Friends -- Dana Perino from the 5 weren't tea at morning it's I don't talk to them there.
And Clint black and Vernon and you've got a fantastic weekend.
Because you and -- were answering everything in the form of question what is trail that that's right we'll tell you that that in a minute so UW we did you did you jeopardy -- I did jeopardy educate my knowledge she would have revealed by one of us I UK I can't say that I won a practice round.
And all that funny isn't the best part was you get to play for Terry Jeffrey's very generous here I'm -- the funniest thing is that I was.
I was in five inch heels and -- an eight inch box.
As well -- small compared to Kareem Abdul it's what's -- so I.
I don't think they're bad and I did when I did that years ago it was -- -- it's Gary's -- its heart and the buzzer thing -- -- Greg -- try to give me tips in -- day on.
On exercises and I should have taken -- about training.
I think it's more to get it it's that they'll know it's -- something else to back to me that he's tend to do better on jeopardy because they played so many more video games.
Then girls -- generate a slice I didn't have been missing link and relax and let editing did you have to wait to the lights come on bit.
And he's reading a clue women and it's smarter faster rate can read it faster -- you wanna do -- and then you pat you're penalized if you get it faster percent hadn't expressed.
Well I had a family member in attendance on over the weekend who.
Saw it and told me that -- we didn't realize and that is before you actually do the show.
There's -- complete.
-- show -- to crappy food feeding and but then and then in the real game I took a swing at I had a swing -- -- I mean.
I thought I had it right and there was one -- -- it'll be wins -- show it will air that week of may fourteenth OK and just remind us it's the greatest was out of access to watch as the hot.
Everyday -- on his lunch hour at 2 o'clock well.
-- -- that he revealed that the last book he read was killing Lincoln.
Yes actually he asked me about that moment said he wanted to come over to fox and meet everybody.
See their fancy how it all worked our -- is -- Well let's talk a little bit about to what's going on Capitol Hill and in the president's office because this new developments now on the Secret Service scandal.
At least at one senators asking whether or not they can be connections to some of the White House staff in Columbia maintenance you know -- the advance team where they there were they in some of these rooms.
What do you make -- -- well.
-- a few things in one way you could.
Look at something like that is being overly political but you can also having been there it's quite logical because on an advance trip.
-- that's because of security you have.
All of the advance people whether Secret Service or people that work in the White House or any different anywhere else all in the same area are in the same couple of different hotels.
But I don't think that there's a suggestion necessarily that.
There were White House political appointees involved I don't think there's no indication to me that there is any hindrance on the investigation seems to me they're leaving no stone unturned.
And it couldn't come up that there might be back and -- up Republicans I think -- right to ask the question.
But they shouldn't go a bit too far I don't think that this is something that was dictated from the White House is actually it's a national embarrassment.
And its security we're talking a -- security and apparently this twelfth guy who's been in identified.
We stayed at the Hilton which is where the president was and that his particular encounter apparently two days before all the others right.
The thing that I saw this morning was a question of I guess I lead female Asian and US asserts it has been sent down reed and she'll do it she'll do a great job and the question of whether there should be more female agents.
That that -- US -- service as a lot more than just protective detail they do a lot of fraud investigations financial security type of things.
I know I a young woman who is a Secret Service agent who protected the bush twins.
Because because she came a little blend in a little bit more easy in and help them and not have to -- -- delicate sort them.
But I don't think that there should be be more women in Secret Service to have to -- -- The men and make them behave better -- -- it.
They've got enough on their plate that shouldn't at the added to their job description whatsoever that -- that a truck is again he was out -- the Sunday shows this week to try to make up for the week prior unease about him a golf game and I don't think he was is very.
Intense -- you say that.
He -- believe the GSA.
The GSA is emblematic of things it with the administration -- with government your reaction.
Well I understand why he's saying that although with this particular and situation at the GSA.
It's like they -- smoke.
On the fire and to skid continues to spread rather than smothering it.
I think they weren't strong position to say when we heard about this we -- the political appointees there's a full investigation and we're gonna let it go wherever it.
Wherever it leads we will not stand for US taxpayer dollar to be wasted in this way up but here.
Wrong though they did -- find out in June that something was wrong there.
Right again I think that that congress -- -- to hold onto it interesting to me that could have waited.
-- congress could have waited for a little bit longer for this to come out you know maybe September.
Which would have been more politically advantageous in that actually happen in 2000.
Six to the Republicans when that house and Democrats.
Ron Emmanuel -- -- -- Burton others knew.
About the -- Mark Foley scandal -- and held it.
Right -- -- and congressman.
I'm just gonna say let's -- Republican congressman won -- suggested.
That this is you know this is a little peek behind how the president manages things which would be a larger issue do you think there's anything to that.
I I think the issue of core competency and making sure that everything it depends on who you hire right I hired somebody at the GSA who did not do a good job.
You could make that you could say that's a personnel problem -- that part of efforts but.
I actually don't think that this is anything that you can directly connect to President Obama but how they handle it afterwards you can't.
-- to commit Romney don't don't you want to make this about tax tax dollars yes and and if you give more money to the government which is what President Obama wants you to do.
Then look at what can happen this is a shining example of waste is that not the argument at -- exactly and I would take it just a little -- and it ended.
In an additional direction witches.
When you -- for the budget Mr.
President you don't say that there's any of these other agency should be cut and then you want to blame the previous administration for increasing their budget.
Do you not think that there's any place that you can cut I do.
The problem is for me is that the that that the GSA but arguably could be cut if they're spending this kind of money on these types of things.
But we're still not talking about major entitlement reform which is the real problem.
I listen -- -- -- gonna be doing this week he's gonna be sitting down with Jimmy Fallon and doing the -- -- I guess he's very concerned the new focuses on college age kids might be losing them.
And he's also going to be within with Jimmy Kimmel Jimmy -- was -- to the western correspondents dinner is a good thing to do.
-- It's where he's most comfortable.
He does really well on those shows you look at the some of the polls that say that he is not is very likable -- continue to like him well you -- on a show like that and you like it but.
Here is Jimmy Kimmel got Jimmy Kimmel asked tough questions and he's not he doesn't spare in his criticism and sometimes be humorous ones can hurt the most but.
I would be surprised if this week Jimmy Fallon would get into that discussion take for example in North Carolina where president but -- outlook on Tuesday.
They have a major state Democratic Party scandalous sexual harassment with the state archer who won't back down -- We also have -- John Edwards trial happen to be starting this week in North Carolina.
President Obama is going there tomorrow and over my dead body what I have sent President Bush to go to a state like that to do an event -- -- -- -- we know what we have something else to do.
And it President Bush had a just a very different outlook on these comedy shows he liked them he respected and but he never went on what -- As president Jay Leno said that he wouldn't use me George Bush had a very good sense of humor would do we would go along with things -- -- Al Gore and John Kerry -- uptight.
The right and act and the but I also think the president never President Bush and go on -- -- after.
The presidency was over raised it I think it was a place for the president looked weak and also they're dangerous tour yet I think it comes out of a summary heartedly that in 2012.
We have presidents and candidates.
Considering to go on these comedy shows and even hosts like Saturn unit lie and that's where you can reach a lot of people -- I tend to think that if they just sort of focus.
Jobs and the economy jobs and economy done.
-- like that's squirrel that roomful of Disco Disco ball and it looked at all.
Another thing that jobs in the economy that's it married Dana -- from the five which Alastair back watches and is discovered it.
We'll be watching you today -- thanks with a five now.
