"Welcome to the Tisch WNET Studio, here in New York City. It is our honor, once again, by popular demand, we have her back, Maria Bartiromo. She's the anchor of Mornings with Maria on Fox Business Network, and also the anchor of Sunday Morning Futures on the Fox News channel, on Sundays, at what time? 10 AM. And every morning during the week? Every morning on Fox Business Network, 6-9 AM eastern. Now I was checking you out this morn... Getting up early these days. Yeah and getting up early... [laughter] Right? And by the way, tell everyone again, I mean, by the way, everyone sees Maria in every one of our opens, right? How early is the morning wakeup? Well I get up everyday at 3:30 in the morning, because I'm live at 6 o'clock in the morning from our studios in New York. So it's just a little prep before that. And so I don't mind it. I love my schedule by the way. And I love my show. Love? I'm having the best time. Love. [laughter] Okay so we are taping this toward the end of 2016, as we go into the holidays, so it'll be seen after into 2017. I'm watching you this morning, on Mornings with Maria, you have this great cast of folks on. And just today, I know we'll date ourselves, but this is relevant. Donald Trump tweeted. Are you shocked? No. Okay. So he happened to tweet about the Boeing thing? And you... Yeah. ...know, the price, "Hey listen, this is too much money." Right. And I heard you talking about it, and the stock price dipped for Boeing, and it came back up. You are a fan, are you in favor of him expressing his views about these kinds of things in the marketplace? Well, I don't know about that. I think there is... Do you think it's okay? Well, it's... it depends. I'll let you say it. If he is going to start targeting individual companies by name and moving their stock prices, no. I don't think it's okay. That's not good? No. I don't think it's good. Having said that, I think he's using this Twitter as an opportunity to sort of send a messages out, and I think that was what he did with Boeing. Basically, "Don't try to take advantage of the US Government, and charge $4,000,000,000 for Air Force One. I know how much planes cost. We'll cancel the order." But frankly, it's gonna be hard to cancel the order. Who are you gonna get to make your planes? Airbus? Which is a European jet maker. I don't think so..."
