9:02 am
discussion. we will bring you that baby's mom. she will give us the full story, "varney & company," yeah, we're about to begin. ♪ all right. monday morning, we'll start this morning just a tad higher. it looks to me like it's pretty flat. 17-7 and that's where we'll open from and we're 5, 600 points from the record close and that's somewhere in the distance, perhaps. 600 points away. look at oil. we've got two stories there, saudi arabia, the oil minister out and the new guy is probably not going to cut production or freeze production so that keeps a lot of oil on the market and of course, there's still a glut. canada's wildfire, that's taking oil off the market. all right, ashley, let's get some developments here. start with canada, the latest. ashley: well, the good news is
9:03 am
cooler weather, rain yesterday, cooler temperatures today, they can start to get a handle on it, 400,000 acres burned, but the other good news, it didn't get close enough to affect the major oilsands facilities. they were closed or partially shut down in anticipation of the fire, but the fire never reached those oilsands operations which is good news because once they get a handle on this, they can start ramping up production dagain. stuart: if you couple that with saudi arabia, they're not going to cut-- >> no, he's taking over as oil minister and all of these are controlled by-- >> the gentleman. ashley: his son. ashley: they don't want iran to get more market share. the new oil minister is essential will i a puppet. s' not-- he's not going to operate independent. and they're trying to diversify
9:04 am
away from oil only. stuart: prices are down in part because of two developments. ashley: yes. stuart: politics, bread and butter. over the weekend, donald trump confused a lot of people. you know, it sounded like he wanted to raise taxes on the wealthy, listen to this. >> when i'm negotiating with the government, i'm putting in my plan, it's negotiated, they're not going to say let's see what we can do. it will be a negotiation, i will try and keep everything. stuart: all right, on nbc, he implied the negotiations he was talking about there would in fact raise taxes on the wealthy, that's what he implied. now, here is what he said on maria's show. >> i'm not talking about a tax increase, i'm talking about a tremendous tax decrease, it was misreported by nbc. i said of the low proposal. yeah, i may have to raise it a little bit because this is a negotiation, i may have to
9:05 am
raise it, i'm really going to fight hard for the middle class, i'm not raising it and not raising it on business, but i could see the wealthy-- i'm not talking a raise from where they are now, i'm talking about a raise from my low proposal. stuart: that clarifies it. less of a tax cut, raise the minimum wage if that's what states want. no social security reform and buy back the debt if its price goes down. have you got that? robert jeffries is here, a trump supporter. it seems to me that trump is moving to the left. i don't want to say the left, but more towards the center maybe to accommodate the republican party. what do you think? >> it's called the art of the deal. it's negotiation and it's fine up to a point. look, if republicans have wanted a strict idea log, they would have chosen ted cruz.
9:06 am
they want someone who gets things done. the trick for trump going forward to figure out what's negotiable and nonnegotiable. trump is a smart guy, he'll figure it out. stuart: he better fot back away too far from tax curts to get growth -- cuts to get growth. where does that leave republicans? >> he was clearing, talking about increasing from his original proposal, not from current levels right now. and look, stuart, there's a number everybody needs to remember, the number is 12 million. that's how many votes he will have received by the time the primaries are over next month, more than any other candidate in republican history. i think it's laughable that paul ryan is withholding support thinking he's going to make trump fall in line with him. trump is the head of the republican party, not paul ryan. stuart: what about no scattered showers reform?
9:07 am
that's an entitlement program that's breaking the bank and wage the minimum wage. if that's what the states want, raising minimum wage. he's backtracking on so many principles being in the republican party. >> i think he's saying he's open to negotiation and look, you cannot deny, stuart, that he has won an overwhelming victory. people know what his position is. they like his position and again, i think he will fall in the right position by the time all of this is over. he's just saying i'm opening to negotiating. people are tired of the gridlock, stuart, they want something done. stuart: i think they want clarity and maria got some earlier on this network. i've got to run. i'm going to stay on trump for a moment ands trying to explain his position on women and going on the attack and painting the clintons, both of them, as very bad for women, listen to this.
9:08 am
>> she was an unbelievably, nasty, mean enabler and what she did to a lot of those women is disgraceful. nobody in this country and maybe in the history of the country politically, was worse than bill clinton with women. have you ever read what hillary clinton did to the women that bill clinton had affairs with? and they're going after me with women? give me a break, folks. stuart: okay. kirsten is with us now. he goes on the attack with the women's issue, if you put it like that, he attacks his opponent a female on the women's issue. is it going to work? >> it's a great charm offensive. stuart: does it work? >> no, i think, no. the majority of republican women do not like donald trump although there are some that do. this is going to be a major problem for him in the general election and even though i do tend to agree with what he's saying in principle about the
9:09 am
fact that hillary did not stand up for many so of the women that bill clinton didn't treat well at all. consider the source, donald trump bragged about his affairs and bragged about multiple divorces, he's talked about their body parts, their appearances in revolting ways. you can't take those statements back and that's going to resonate in the mind of women and i think we all love to see hillary be a little more transparent about those struggles, but ultimately, donald trump this is not the way to go. ashley: i don't think it's going to win female votes based on that rhetoric, no. stuart: he's got a point. ashley: and i agree with him with his characterization of hillary clinton, but i don't think based on what he said before it's going to have impact on gaining more voters. stuart: last word. >> and millennial women, he needs to bring them in. that's me. a lot of us weren't necessarily around and thinking and walking when the president clinton
9:10 am
thing and monica lewinsky, i'm a student of history. >> i think that donald trump will refresh your memory. >> i don't want to hear about it. stuart: two names going in the opposite direction. i hate charts, but-- >> mcdonald's going to a straight all-time high. the other one is apple bumbling along at 30% that's a two-year low. ashley: more people buying all day breakfast than an iphone. that's what it says, it's down 12% in 2016. last week fell as low as 11. ashley: june 2014 was the last time it's this low. it was once considered the darling. the sales are slowing, first time since 2003. on the other hand, mcdonald's
9:11 am
16 record highs, i guarantee-- >> do you think we would have been saying this a year ago? >> no, no, mcdonald's the best performing stock on the dow every the last 12 ponts. stuart: all day breakfast. >> i know. stuart: garlic fries. another one. we are going to end the block on a positive note. a ticket sold in the 429 million dollar lottery. where is the winning ticket? >> in trenton, new jersey. they took the cash option so they'll get $284 million before taxes. stuart: take a big deep breath. 429. ashley: they get 284 and pay tax on that because that's the cash option. stuart: no, isn't that after taxes. ashley: no, i don't think so. i think there's more taxes on top of that. because i thought that, too. stuart: i will look into it. ashley: i cannot believe that
9:12 am
you get a payment saying-- are' saying that's after tax, right? 284? i think it's an option you take because you want it all in one go as opposed to yearly taxes. stuart: the worst i think you do take it spread over 20 years and then you die because then the irs says, the tax is due and payable now, on everything. ashley: oh. stuart: which you've got yet received. you're bankrupt. all right. moving on, look at this, we're showing you some extraordinary video right now of a massive tornado, this is in colorado. it was shot by our own fox news meteorologist maria molina. she and her husband right in the middle of a storm when this twister came through. and it's gone through much of that section of the company. our own maria molina out of the front seat of a car that was shot. how about that? and then we have this, president obama's senior spin doctor admitting that he misled
9:13 am
the american public about the iran deal. ralph peters, very upset. ♪ i built my business with passion. but i keep it growing by making every dollar count. that's why i have the spark cash card from capital one. i earn unlimited 2% cash back on everything i buy for my studio. ♪ and that unlimited 2% cash back from spark means thousands of dollars each year going back into my business... that's huge for my bottom line. what's in your wallet?

9:15 am
9:16 am
>> senior foreign policy spin doctor admits he misled reporters on the iran nuke negotiations. here is the key quote from the new york times. the average reporter we talked to is 27 and their only reporting experience is being around campaigns. it's a sea change, they literally know nothing. he's saying this, there was no shortage of good reporting and analysis, a review of that press from that period will find plenty of tough journal and scrutiny. but he still misled them. joining us is ralph peters. he said that iran was run by them-- >>
9:17 am
national security advisor for strateg strategic. >> as a propagandist, he's been very good, josef stalin could have used this guy. really, if you look at what he said,'s not only insulted the journalists, trashed them. insulted the military, virtually everyone and been rhodes was gleeful, gleeful in this brilliantly done article about now the-- he put one over on the american people through manipulating journalists for this method and they're only negotiating now with the iranians because suddenly there were moderates in place when they'd been negotiating with the heartlineheartline ers -- hard liners, and then benloa benloads-- he says if you don't like this-- >> i'm sorry, am i right in saying ben rhodes is the man
9:18 am
the president listened to and the president did not listen to defense settings telling him something else entirely about the iran deal. he listened to ben rhodes and didn't listen to the generals, is that accurate? >> it is in the sense that several people interviewed for the article say there's a mind meld between rhodes and obama. let' not forget valerie jarrett's rhodes. it's rich that he's making fun of inexperienced journalists, and he has no foreign policy experience, never worked for an ngo. didn't study foreign policy. he's just a word smith. stuart: but the iran deal is success? it seems to me to be a disaster and is falling apart. does ben rhodes think it's a success? >> that's all that matters, he sold the product. and when the terrific
9:19 am
journalist, david samuels who wrote the piece in the new york times magazine, he raised this with rhodes, what about the 450,000 dead in syria and rhodes goes into this rhetorical speech, what about the death in congo. and then the obama position on everything, we can't do everything therefore we shouldn't do anything. people need to read this because so many people came out of the woodwork to lay it on the line, they're so disgusted with obama and the most telling line about sources about obama, the world has disappointed obama. stuart: oh, okay. well, a fitting end to our discussion, i think, ralph, and we thank you as always for being with us. calm down, okay? calm down, and i will, too. all right, everybody, moving on. new york city, the mayor thereof, bill deblasio, he blames racism for puerto rico's money problems. he says we've turned our back on puerto rico because they are

>> new york city's mayor, bill deblasio blaming racism for puerto rico's money problems. in a speech to al sharpton's national action network, he said, quote, the backs of the united states government turned on them. by the way, brothers and sisters, do you think by any chance it could be because they are people of color? it sounds to me like he wants a bailout from the federal government? >> it does. you have to consider the audience he's speaking to, and he used the heightened rhetoric. this is so complicated not only financially, but puerto rico is not a company and apply for the bailout fund. it does a disservice to the puerto rican people and the issues-- . >> i don't think it has
9:25 am
anything to do with racism. they spent into a financial disaster. ashley: they could be green or purple, they blew their finances. >> as have people all over the world. stuart: they're 72 billion in debt. they want the american mainland taxpayer to forgive it and bail them out. >> to make it seem like there are congress people and speaker paul ryan that are not working every day to try to figure this issue out is appalling. ashley: it's for deblasio to say this-- >> it stirs things up. stuart: we're going to be down about 20 when the bell rings in four and a half minutes. look at this, a cruise ship offering to buy local vietnamese company on fire as it return to port. passengers from europe and asia

"varney" is winning here stuart: thank you, bill. myself and bill o'reilly. 9:30 monday morning. the opening bell, trading has just begun. we've got a tiny little gain, up five points. going nowhere monday morning. big-name stocks that are going in different directions. mcdonald's near the all-time high of 130. apple still close to a two-year low at 92. there is a story for you. joining us from ashley webster, listening donald, scott shelby and fitzgerald. do you first. it's an interesting story. as investor, would he make it? apple goes straight down and
9:31 am
mcdonald's goes straight up. >> you know, stuart, there's an amazing history for investors. absolutely the right thing at the wrong time. they should be buying the cheap stuff. to me this is the story of apple is on sale. if you're a long-terminvestor is a problem with pricing in either area. stuart: they ran out of the garlic fries in san francisco. that's good for the stock. dream for great for the stock. they ran on a bit for the next few weeks. it got so bad that local media called the stories and people said yes, we are out of garlic fries. here's the thing. at the third over the last 12 months. garlic fries is the right move at the right time. so you know, 250 chains countrywide, probably yes.
9:32 am
stuart: i don't want to make too big of a deal, but garlic fries will raise the thought price -- stock price. >> looking golden again. stuart: did they just touch their all-time high would have been the senate down a fraction now. but it was a little bit. big day. monday included. apple and amazon, put them on the screen. where are they. apple virtually unchanged. netflix and 90. a-alpha that come in that it's google, 726 update about. amazon $673 per share. how many months ago when it was at 480, 490? four declaration. 30 years ago i bought 100 shares of stock in my ira back in the day. i felt it ever since, never touched it. i think that's exactly the same
9:33 am
price. keep fitzgerald, are you laughing at me in my investing ability? >> no, i'm laughing with you because i've done the same thing with microsoft, and other of your favorite. stuart: not going to get into that. here's another big movement. krispy kreme, the doughnut people will be taken private by jp holdings. the $1.3 billion deal. krispy kreme up 23%. taking it private and various tea and coffee companies under their umbrella. caribou among the names. the contact. at 23% on krispy kreme. try this one. dunkin' donuts, these are names we all know. the krispy kreme getting back up nearly 2%. does anybody like scott or keith want to comment on krispy kreme
9:34 am
or dunkin' donuts or anything like that? do you want to get into this? >> funny how you come to me when we start talking about donuts. if there's any correlation there. that's the right thing for krispy kreme. i do remember it was the coveted thing together. all of a sudden you see a pop-up in gas stations and they over did the brand a little bit. it's the right thing to do to go back private again. i think that's going to be good altogether. that's the right to do. dream two years ago be assumed by krispy kreme people onto the show because they always came up about five dozen doughnuts. we used to love that. another big name, you know it. come and the chicken people have raised their profit outlook when it got down to the stock? >> stock is up 5% today to an all-time new record high. the album is better than expected for profit. they came in great on the

9:36 am
taken off the market. i guess that is why it's down this morning. >> yeah. you have to let rec a few days ago we did have the forefront right and center of our mind. we really couldn't get oil going even with that. that just tells you there's such an overhang is hard to get through that. we really need to demand side of the equation to pick up the supply there. doesn't look like it's picking up anytime soon because anyway look at the numbers, especially the jobs will all be on fire for some time. stuart: doldrums for oil. what do you make of the saudi arabia is going to sell 5% of ramco. you will be the biggest ipo in world history. what do you make of that? >> you know, it's a little bit troubling to me. they get a lot of money every year because the oil they've
9:37 am
been sitting on. they have to keep those people happy. as the rates go lower if the massive deflationary thing for the rest of the world hurting us as well. they've also had to flip some bonds to keep the payments going. that doesn't give me a good sign. liz: word on the street this will not be a dividend stock. the government of saudi arabia wants all the money for health for the welfare state. stuart: just a small piece of all those oil reserves. transfer the government owes the reserves. ashley: daresay london could get a bulk of it. this is becoming the new mayor of london. stuart: wait a minute. you're kidding me. ashley: swing between hong kong, once in a new york. liz: i'm not worried about the 9/11 law. ashley: the mayor of london got massive coverage in saudi arabia. there is speculation that london may pick up more than new york
9:38 am
and hong kong because of it. liz: also because new york is worried about 9/11 wall street stuff. that's a saudi arabia does not want. stuart: begun to get more on this. that is fascinating. check out twitter please. shut using its data. i guess this is the cia. u.s. law in force in -- enforcement. a private company called data mining. twitter has a stake in that company. after comfortable as the relationship because it is helping. twitter says i don't like this. we don't like this. this is not sitting well with that and it's cut off the information. to what do you make of twitter? it's been sitting around 14, 15 bucks a share forever. nobody wants to buy it. what are you going to do with it? >> i don't dig you can do much
9:39 am
with it. privacy is the wrong stand to make you get the data through court order anyway. it's foolish to put national security above that there may help create the problems. stuart: captain america, a lot of money. liz: 860 million worldwide. the story for disney, they just broke the 1.2 billion mark. they do that in just four months time. that is a big deal. utopia, jungle book and captain america. stuart: is to think the audience for that would be a girl bullies. apparently i'm wrong. it's a family show. people of all ages. liz: you could take her grandkids. stuart: i could. politics. and they tell you what donald trump said to maria this morning on this network. must have a tax cut for wealthy
9:40 am
people. they will cut down on fraud, waste and abuse. below the diabetic treasury debt if the price of the bonds goes down. and yes, you can have a minimum wage in crease in the states agree to it. what is that sound like to you? >> it sounds like he is coming to the big white table and beginning to realize his hated issues. i personally don't have a problem with that. if i have to pay taxes that had a good year. what is important is beginning to realize their own hands and skin in the game. >> discounted government that is really shaky. interest rates spike. >> up interest rates go up, the price goes down and trump would say buy at the low price. liz: is also talking about discounts. stuart: what he wants he didn't talk about with maria. a different scenario. liz: on twitter that's not good either. stuart: no, it's not.
9:41 am
he sat in on our air. he's got to sum it up. i swear to you. >> you know what, the problem is that what you just talked about, winning to put our people back to work. over the weekend we came up with a workforce environment here in the here in the state and that really comes out of a movie cool hand luke. what we have here is a failure to participate. stuart: okay, i've got you. i saw that movie in darwin, australia. a walking movie. cool hand luke. it was a long time ago. thank you, everybody. 11 minutes into the session, up 14 points. there you have it. we are off and running. the san andreas fault is locked and loaded for a big earthquake. north california. we are talking to that later in

stuart: how about this. target stock down 7% just since mid-april. that is among the company announced its transgender bathroom and changing the policy. down 7%. i think you believe that target is about to cave and back away from this policy. >> something is afoot. in minnesota. yes, i do. so says tom made that target has reached out to the association behind the boycott. 1.2 million people fled is sufficient. as a matter fact the largest boycott they've ever done in his greek of the association. anyway, we understand there's a plan at target headquarters to get as much in the association.
9:56 am
also my understanding that will be hand delivering petitions to target is stuart: forget the intimacy and privacy of the issue. think of this in terms of the lawsuit. at the bathroom policy goes forward, men will be allowed to enter a women's restroom should. who's going to take the lawsuit? >> that dirty starting to happen here is last is a little girl inside a target dressing room. america ought to get away but the local television station posted photographs of guy. they were able to capture him on surveillance video. this came a day after the attorney after the attorney general sent target letter saying we need to know what tech women in those bathrooms and stories here in texas. there seems there is issues going on here. i'm not quite sure that's a pretty good indication of how the boycott is going.
9:57 am
the fact of the matter is people are saying i think i might go to wal-mart instead of target because of the bathroom situation. stuart: and wonder how many people would shift the store because of this law. just wait until you get some kind of happening. somebody gets assaulted in a target bathroom and everything has changed. >> absolutely. i suspect that's what's going to happen. we'll see how the meeting does between target in the american family association president obama delivering the commencement address at howard university this weekend. he said successful people recognize they are also lucky. how about that. they're all just lucky. next hour on that dori. long lines outside new york city elected the new restaurant where the mayors that should not eat that. wait until you hear what your crews have to say. either way, that is a line out the door.

>> 10:00 here in new york on the east coast and 7:00 in california. if you're waking up in the golden state, you're looking at dramatic new numbers how many people are leaving, ready to leave the bay area, how about the golden gate bridge. you'll being shocked at this number. long lines outside of a chick-fil-a, but they're not listening to the mayor to boycott the chick-fil-a. the line is out the door. west virginia tomorrow, a lot of support for donald trump. we're talking that state's coal industry, endorsing donald trump. and president obama gives the commencement at howard university and says successful people got to where they are with luck. it doesn't matter, brains, talent, drive and ability, you've got to be lucky, that's what it's all about.
10:01 am
check the big boards, we're a half hour into the session and we are, by the way, 5 had,points away from the all-time record high for the dow industrials. not going to get there today. we're up 21. individual stocks, oh, please, mcdonald's, will you look at that, garlic fries sell out in san francisco. 1231.39. the new high. the apple share, that stock price is still near a two year low. it improved to 93 and change opposed to 9 it and change. and receiving raw data, the ceo can no longer get the raw feed of all-- >> which they have up to this point. a company called data miner, a private company that twitter has a 5% stake in, until now they've cooperated, yes, you
10:02 am
can have access to history of tweets and messages and now twitter says they're uncomfortable with that relationship and cutting off that data source to police. stuart: that's a big deal in the whole privacy going on. >> growing tensions. stuart: a winner with captain america, that helping the stock to move up liz: despite the withering reviews, that the dialog is silly, 860 million worldwide. disney has the big franchise brands that every studio would love to have. they have already cleared more than a billion bucks in just about four month's time and that's record receipts along with "zootopia." stuart: grab the brand and run with it. ashley: they do it well, come on. stuart: the wildfire in canada's oil country continues although it's retreating a little. and that's the rain.
10:03 am
about 600 square miles is either burning or has been burnt and 100,000 people have been evacuated. now, ashley, what does this mean for the supply of oil. it's not been interrupted, i don't think. >> no, well, it hasn't. they say about 600,000 barrels of oil, could be closer to a million much the good news is that none of the oil sand mining operations have been affected by the fire. they shut them down or produced reduction and the weather has turned cooler and expect that today. that's helping to, as they say yet a death grip around this fire. it's continuing to burn, but maybe the impact is not as great. >> and that's why the price is going down. >> politics, please, some clarity by donald trump on his tax plan. we got this from maria bartiromo's show on the fox business network earlier today when donald trump was the guest.
10:04 am
in brief, let me boil this down. trump wants to cut taxes, but the cuts might be a little less than he originally proposed. he's got to negotiate with the democrats and republicans. we get a tax cut, a little less we thought. and tackle the debt, buying treasury bonds only if the price goes down of the he says he's going to keep his hands off social security, he'll just go after waste, fraud and abuse. joining us for more on this is the former chair of the nevada republican party. all right. you are, i believe, now prepared to support donald trump. is that accurate, amy? >> yes, i am. i'm actually in favor of president trump. stuart: do you like what i should said about what trump said earlier is morning, a tax cut, but not as big of a tax cut. don't touch social security. maybe raise the minimum page if states want that.
10:05 am
you approve of all of this. a trump may be moving to the center just a little bit to try to get back in with the republican party? >> well, you know, we all know he's the great negotiator, when you're going to compromise, you start with everything possible on the table because you know you're not going to get it all. of course, we need to leave the middle class alone. so i agree with his statement on tablgss. -- taxes and with the minimum wage and leaving it up to the states, that's a 10th amendment issue and agree with him. social secury is something that people have been paying into for years and we should leave them alone. however, this was started in 1930's and the life expectancy was 58, 59, it's now 78. we should raise the age. stuart: you don't sound enthusiastic about trump, but i guess you're prepared to go with him bearing in mind what you just said, right? >> yes, absolutely. for those republicans who are out there trash talking mr. trump, shame on them. you know, i believe they're
10:06 am
being hypocritical. if they want to say something negative about mr. trump maybe they should stay home and quit giving interviews, all they're doing is hurting our party. my own child who is six, if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all. stuart: nicely put. jeb bush and lindsey graham saying they're not going to back donald trump. however, they did both sign the g.o.p. loyalty pledge way back in the early parts of the debates. what does that mean? two people who signed the loyalty pledge, but say, no, we're not going to back him. you backed kasich and you're now supporting trump. >> yes, and i am going to support mr. trump. shame on those two individuals were actually taking that pledge and then backing out on it. once again, if they can't say anything nice don't say anything at all. mr. trump doesn't need to have their support, he should just continue moving forward. the people out there are angry
10:07 am
and they are in favor of mr. trump, so it only hurts themselves. stuart: thanks very much for being with us again. we've followed your progress politically for some time now. >> thank you. stuart: now you're somewhat reluctantly behind donald trump. we'll take that. thanks, indeed. not putting words in your mouth, but-- >> no, i am supporting mr. trump, yes, i am. stuart: thanks, amy, appreciate it. now this, president obama telling graduates at howard university that success is due, in part at least, to luck. watch this. >> that's a pet peeve of mine, people who have been successful and don't realize they've been luc lucky. the god may have blessed them, it wasn't nothing you did. so don't have an attitude. stuart: well, serious xm patriot host and fox news contributor david webb is here.
10:08 am
the president didn't say it's all luck, just winner of life's lottery, oh, lucky, lucky, you. he says that luck plays a role in success. i'm not prepared to say that he's totally wrong on that, are you? >> no, because what he said when it comes to the comment in luck, the problem is how he defines luck. luck is when preparation meets opportunity. i was just in las vegas, as a matter of fact, it was kind of fun to look over the back and ten hours ago i was probably on the same street by the excaliber. i was there for a conference and i'm going to tie this together. luck is what's going on in the casinos. people are gambling and hoping the machine comes in, and the right card comes out. i'm in a conference with the young marines, the leaders and sergeant majors and there are volunteers prepared to help kid billed better lives for themselves. that's not luck, that's preparation.
10:09 am
luck is outside the conference door thousands of people think they'll hit one number and they don't. the president is selling envy rather nonopportunity. social justice rather than true justice. he's literally pitting us against each other. stuart: if i'm reading between the lines. i don't know whether it's accurate or not he seemed to imply that you're lucky if you're born white and not so lucky if you're born black. that's what i read into this. >> he throws that in the end, he says maybe that middle class white person you don't quite understand and you've got to get in his head. look, the president speaks well, he would make a great late night talk show host and delivers a great speech. stuart: that's a putdown. that was a putdown. >> frankly, a late night talk show host, give the guy credit, he can deliver a message a pile of something politically and make you think it's good for you. and again, selling social justice over true justice, opportunity--
10:10 am
stu, you came to america, why did you come here? >> because of opportunity, that's why. >> so whether you're black, white, hispanic, old, young, female where i was in the conference those are people preparing for their lives, that's not luck, that's preparation. when opportunity comes along you're ready to go. stuart: i've got a fast comment from you, please, on new york city's social its mayor-- bolshevik bill. stuart: he says that racism is to blame for puerto rico's problem. >> i say bad economics, bad policy and things that governor fortuno couldn't do. when you've got 46% of the people living under the poverty line and caribbean socialism going on in an island that they now want to bail out. they need to-- >> who wants the bailout, wants the american taxpayer bailout. >> bolshevik bill doesn't know about economic thes, in
10:11 am
venezuela, people are hunting dogs and pidgeons, where socialism failed. stuart: barry did you get bolshevik bill? donald trump? no, actually steve forbes. stuart: thank you very much. back to california, two ugly numbers for you on a monday morning, sorry about that. first one, more than a third of bay area residents in northern california say they're looking to leave. they cite high housing costs and traffic as the main reasons there, perhaps it's the state's 2,000 new laws that are introduced every year that have something to do with it. 2000 new laws in the state every single year. ashley: where do you begin? by the way that 40% of people living in the bay area, i believe it's headed in completely the wrong direction, up from 28% a year ago. stuart: really? >> the bay city council saying this is a canary in the coal mine. you mention the longs. approximately 2000 new laws every year in california, 200,000 in place already,
10:12 am
dealing with health and safety, but some of them, if you look through them. it's illegal to light your own fireplace during christmas in california. if you fail to recycle properly, $500 fine. can't use foam takeout carriers and plastic carriers-- . so you can't have the yule log in california? i remember i looked at firewood in a supermarket in new jersey there's a warning label on that. ashley: right. stuart: burning woods creates carcinogens. and you can't use it in california in christmas time liz: talk about housing costs so high. it's 12 past 7 in california. >> good morning, good morning, california dreamin' again. stuart: good morning vietnam, and i feel like that, right. let's get to west virginia, coal country, they vote tomorrow, big support there for donald trump. we are told the head of that state's coal association will
10:13 am
join us later this hour. does he think that trump can really bring coal mining jobs back? that's a very important question. plus, it's the video that go the internet buzzing and then some. parents filming their baby floating in the pool. they did it for a reason. the mother is here is explain what that is. the baby did okay. and ben rhodes, one of the president's top advisors tells that media was misled during the iran deal. general jack keane on that next.
10:14 am
10:15 am
10:16 am
>> breaking news from north carolina on that restroom law. liz, what happened liz: north carolina now suing the justice department saying this is a blatant overreach acting against north carolina on north carolina's bathroom law. but here is what's at stake. the governor of north carolina
10:17 am
warning that hundreds of millions of dollars of education funding from the federal government is at stake because this affects the schools. in other words, if you are a student, sex discrimination schools against transgender in your states, you would lose that money and it would reach to others. ashley: the government says you're breaking the civil rights act and interesting to see if this whole thing ends up in court and whether the government will prevail. stuart: federal government. north carolina has not caved, thisser' suing liz: this is affect other states. stuart: how about this one. one of president obama's top national security advisors telling the new york times sunday magazine that he, ben rhodes is his name, specifically misled journalists telling them that iran, during the iran nuke negotiations, iran was run by moderates and nothing to fear, everything is going to be work out okay and the journalists bought that line. general jack keane is with us and general, two defense
10:18 am
secretaries quit, i think, over this kind of issue, ben rhodes is the guy that president obama listened to instead of defense secretaries and generals. you guys must be seething. >> well, it is a revealing article, to be sure. and quite extraordinary. i don't think it's surprising that there's a fair amount of self-promotion of mr. rhodes, also, an arrogance that they're smarter than anybody else in foreign policy to include the mainstream media who they believe no longer has any foreign policy experts, and also, that they're critical of the establishment in terms of their foreign policy knowledge and they include in that secretary clinton and secretary gates who both served the administration and you indicated another secretary of defense in terms of panetta had major problems with him. but what is surprising about the article, as you mention in the introduction, is that we have a white house national security deputy admitting that
10:19 am
they misrepresented the facts to the american people using the media to spin up so that they could get the deal through and it could be successful. stuart: why would they see this as self-promotion? why would ben rhodes think it's self-promotion? that deal is falling to pieces and it's a disaster for america and a disaster for the middle east. >> they don't see it that way at all, stuart. what they believe they have accomplished is they also exaggerated the facts and said that we were maybe less than one year away from a war with iran, that was either war with iran, or this peace negotiation. thats with a the book ends that they established. that was misrepresenting, too, likely three years to be sure at best. secondly, therefore, they think what the deal has done for them, they have delayed that inevitability of a war and what
10:20 am
makes the deal so outrageous to most foreign policy experts is that in ten years iran is permitted to have a nuclear threshold capability and 15 years permitted to have a weapon. that is absolutely outstanding and no wonder everybody pushes back on the deal. they were able to get the american people by and large to support this and many people in congress to support it mainly because they were misrepresenting some of the conditions and facts taking place, that's the surprise of the article, that he actually admits that. stuart: it's astonishing, thank you for coming on the show, always appreciate your input. >> good talking to you, stuart. stuart: scary earthquake warning for california residents, a top seismologist says that the san dreas fault is locked, loaded and ready to go. we'll talk to him later. next, new york city's socialist mayor urging residents to boycott chick-fil-a stores. new yorkers are not listening

10:33 am
now we have a little clarity on the trump land. he would cut taxes. that speaks out to me. i take it you approve of this? i think people will be really poised. i think you'll be very pleased with the final product did down to 15 or 20%. what concerns me about trump last week is this kind of waffling. maybe we will raise tax on the rich. maybe we will not be able to reduce the debt. i think that that is a problem for him. he is not a politician.
10:34 am
i think that that is a dangerous territory. >> you have to negotiate. you come up with a planned anti-has a plan. you have to negotiate. i wish he had been more clear about the essential nature of the plan. you cut taxes. i would like or clarity about refinancing the debt. buying back the debt if interest rates go up. >> one other point about taxes. ronald reagan raised taxes on the rich. they actually paid more taxes under ronald reagan. that is the best way to raise tax revenues. make the economy grow stronger. i am still not ecstatically clear what donald trump is talking about here.
10:35 am

10:38 am
to look at the broader context. that's comment about the pet peeves, i think we have all experienced the person who had a real lack of. daddy giving you -- cleared up by your bootstraps. that is kind of the donald trump narrative. that is presented as hard work. i think that it is actually quite a bit in there that conservatives would like. delivered to black communities. righteous anger will not get you anywhere. you have to work in the system. you have to vote. you have to listen to people you do not agree with. it gives conservatives and liberals a lot that they can agree on. >> addressing what i think was a
10:39 am
predominantly black audience. >> howard university. historically black college. they are urban young people. frankly, a lot of them did not have access to daddy's money. a great big accomplishment. >> the rest of the speech was about taking pride in who you are and the history you have. it was an accomplishment. this is the best time to be black in america. you have so much opportunity as a college graduate and a black american. >> that is not the way that i took it. >> i was about two minutes of the speech.

11:34 am
where you are. translated, if you're in new york city, and you lease your apartment for the weekend, you cannot discriminate on the basis of race because new york city and new york state law probat prohibit it. if you're not in new york city or new york state and you're leasing for your apartment for the weekend, you can discriminate on race. stuart: but airbnb tells everybody you cannot discriminate. we're equal opportunity renter of rooms. i think they tell everybody that. >> so if you are part of the airbnb system, you are voluntarily agreeing to comply with their regulations, and then it's a contractual issue, it's not a civil rights issue. stuart: got it. i've got another one for you. are you ready? >> ready. stuart: the governor of north carolina has decided to fight the department of justice over the state's bathroom law. they're not caving. they're going to sue the administration. >> it's an interesting area of law, and i'll tell you why.
11:35 am
the civil rights act of 64 does not protect sexual orientation. so is a transgendered person protected by the laws that prohibit discrimination on the basis of gender? or not protected it's sexual orientation? that's what the federal courts will have to decide. the justice department says the modern day 2016 interpretation of the 64 law should protect lgbt people. ththe state of north carolina says if congress wanted lgbt people to be protected, they would have written it into the statute and a federal judge will have to decide who is right. but it's interesting that north carolina fired the first shot so to speak rather than waiting for the justice department to take the state into the federal court, the state has taken the federal government into a federal court. stuart: do you think that we're on our way to union sex bathrooms all over? >> i think we are. and i also think like donald trump will argue this over the
11:36 am
weekend when he said i can't believe i'm running for president, i'm talking about bathrooms. but since you asked me, i'll tell you. the business owner should be able to make the decision on the business judgment, what his or her customers want. not what the government wants stuart: and the right for lgbt people to be sensitive. what about the my rights to choose the bathroom which i'm comfortable. i'm not expressing this very well. >> no. you are. i know what you mean. two different issues here. we have the government telling private property owners how to construct bathrooms. and we have the government telling other government entities telling lgbt people on government property. one involves private property in a business judgment, the other involves how the government treats people and discriminating against people because they've chosen to change their gender. we don't have laws about changing gender yet because
11:37 am
it's a new area. ashley: what you're talking about, the aclu of mississippi is now suing that state over a law that allows people to deny services to lgbt people based on their religious beliefs. >> there are two supreme court opinions. each of them the past 15 years that prohibit the state from creating a cast of people as to whom. sort of like the jim crowe like. a very strong argument. stuart: and we're all going to have to change, aren't we? bottom line, that's what's going to happen. >> i will tell you. it will depend on who's elected president this november whether we all change. because the federal laws will be vastly different under a president clinton than a president trump. stuart: although president trump, a president trump has already agreed with the north carolina -- no, he's not. he's agreed with the target rule. use any bathroom you like is

stern. he said that during the presidential campaign. also said that john mccain is not a war hero. stuart: i don't want to stray too far off the issue of women. you're telling me categorically that's like get over what he said in the past. no matter what he does now, no matter who he attacks on whatever issue, bill and hillary clinton, it's not good enough, you can't change the women's vote. that's what you're saying? >> his core supporters and clinton haters will like this. but will he sway people by saying this? no, he absolutely won't. for one we've already been through it. we already know this. it's been out there. is it ugly? is it in the gutter? yes, but, again, we don't have to get in the gutter. we just have to use what he says. stuart: i understand. i think you make a good point. you're a democrat. >> yes, i am. stuart: you might even come back. sasha, thank you very much for being with us.

resource program. that program has been around almost 50 years. stuart: and jake was your son, i believe, who has drowned? >> yes. my son drowned about two and a half years ago while we were away, and i had made it my life's mission to not only protect my two daughters, but also children all over the world by providing scholarships for these lessons. stuart: you see, i don't think many people knew about the background to this story and what happened to your other son jake. that's why there was so much controversy when this video went around the world. >> yeah. stuart: you see no harm in allowing a child to save itself? there's no harm in that? in fact, you think that's a good survival skill? >> absolutely. i mean i know the alternative. my son did not know -- did not have these skills, and he's no longer with us. as a parent, i cannot tell you how devastating that is. stuart: i can understand, ma'am. i can understand. at least i can try to.

a lot of people are saying, however, that that child, your child in the video right there will suffer trauma because of what happened to her. that it will be a buried memory, which will come out in a negative way later. what do you say to those critics? >> i can assure you that is very far from the truth. my other daughter julia started the program at eight months, she's two and a half years old now, she loves the water, she swims like a fish, my daughter josie -- that video was taken about seven months ago. she loves the water. she's still in lessons. it could not be any further from the truth. stuart: do all little babies like that save themselves? they figure it out like nature figures out how to stay afloat? >> absolutely not. they're taught that. those skills, they can start the skills as early as six months. the program is four to six weeks, five days a week, ten minutes a day. it's all muscle memory when
11:50 am
they're young like that. that video was not, hey, let's put her on the steps and see what she does. she was trained to get to that point in clothes, diaper, so forth. stuart: now, since this video has appeared so widely around the world, have there been people asking about the program that you run? >> absolutely. i think it's -- that's my mission is to create awareness for water safety and that there are programs out there like isr to teach this type of method. because there's not always going to be a wall or stairs to swim to. they need to learn the self rescue part to float and be able to yell for help and breathe. stuart: kelly, we really appreciate you being here and giving us the full story. >> thank you. stuart: and there is a full story, and you've told it. thank you very much indeed, ma'am. we appreciate it. >> thank you. stuart: sure thing. . stuart: after the break, the top seismologist that warns california is lock and loaded
