Fox News Host: Trump Called Me for Advice on Paris Agreement
Kimberly Guilfoyle (Co-Host): I don't think this is a deal that anybody should be crying about. Like we said, it's non-binding, and the United States is already a clean energy, oil and gas leader. So, we can keep doing what we're doing, we can keep reducing our emissions.

I think he did the brave and courageous thing, and in fact, I told him that this morning at 8 a.m., when he called. And I spoke to him about it, and this was something very much so on his mind, but he seemed like ...
Greg Gutfeld (Co-Host): Wait a second, who called you?
Guilfoyle: The president.
Dana Perino (Co-Host): To ask about climate change?
Gutfeld: Why did he call you?

Gutfeld: I think that you buried the lede here.
Perino: You just tried to slip that in there, just like maybe it happens all the time.
Gutfeld: I know, yeah, the president called me at 8 in the morning.
Guilfoyle: It said "unknown," I thought it was Fox News. But then he said he loves The Five, "terrific show." Said to say hello to all of you.

Respecting scientists has never been a priority for the Trump Administration. Now, a new investigation from The Guardian revealed that Department of the Interior political appointees sought to play up carbon emissions from California's wildfires while hiding emissions from fossil fuels as a way to encourage more logging in the national forests controlled by the Interior department.
