ERIC BOLLING (CO-HOST): The easiest way to transport oil, the safest way, and the cleanest way is through pipeline. The alternative literally is a rail car, a truck, or a ship. Any one of those can spill, they can crash, creating more of an environmental hazard. But again, just very quickly. 28,000 jobs, $3 billion in economic activity per year and literally hundreds of millions of dollars in this one, hundreds of millions of dollars of tax revenue. You should be happy about that, liberals.  

 KIMBERLY GUILFOYLE (CO-HOST): And the markets sure loves it. Sorry, Jane [Fonda]. Record high. 

BOB BECKEL (CO-HOST): You know the other thing I'll say about this is, it is amazing how much oil and gas is trucked around this country every day and shipped around there's no accidents, I give them a lot of credit for that.

GREG GUTFELD (CO-HOST) Well Dana, it is about fossil fuels? They don't care if it's a pipeline or a train.

DANA PERINO (CO-HOST): Everything is about climate change, everything. What I think -- well I know that the Department of Interior is already reaching out to the tribes. I think that if the tribes look at this and think it is going to happen anyway, then they should try to cut a deal. Because they would be able to get a better deal under President Trump than they would have under President Obama.        

BECKEL: Well there's 20 applications for casinos sitting there. That's a good deal, pipeline [for] 20 casinos.
