6:26 pm
the washington national cathedral for the memorial service. great to have you on, jennifer. would you like to share with us one of your fondest memories of working with president george h.w. bush? >> sure. though it's an embarrassing one. it was the first time i was introduced to him. i was brought into the oval office and i was introduced as a new speech writer having been promoted as a speech writer. and my mind went blank. i was hemming and hawing and wasn't automobile to put together a coherent thought. he smoothed over the awkward silences and filled up the time and made me feel very comfortable. he had that skill.
6:27 pm
not just with the junior speech writers. but he had it with heads of state and former political enemies and heads of state. he was able to make up with bill clinton that he had a very, very testy campaign with and became good friend with him. when they are look back at their political and personal legacy. at times like this, we try to remember the best and how they may have inspired us to live our own lives. liz: kindness and humility, for to you give us that story. that's great insight into president george h.w. bush. mr. baker remembers his friend and former boss as consequential presidency.
6:28 pm
>> you look at the fact that he was able to manage and end a peaceful end too the cold war. that was a huge, huge accomplishment. liz: the clean air act, the americans with disabilities. he accomplished a lot. >> he did. but i think perhaps we don't tend to give him as much weight as he deserves in part because he didn't value the message thing. he didn't value communicating as much. i think there is a common vice president syndrome that a lot of vice presidents struggle with being in the shadow of the president. if they are lucky enough to have the opportunity to try to continue that legacy they often go too far in the opposite direction. i think having been 8 years with president reagan, he saw speech
6:29 pm
writing as almost an indulgence and vanity. he moved the speech writing department out from the west wing to the old executive office building. he never really met or spent a lot of time with the peach writers. i think we can look at that as a virtue that he was very you a 10 particular. but at the same time it did limit his ability to convey to the larger public. for some 0 reason he didn't really value or feel he was obligated to communicate with them in that way. i think that was unfortunate. liz: how will you remember his presidency? >> that's a good question. i choose to remember his presidency in part on a political scale. i think on one level we need to
6:30 pm
think of why it is people align themselves into political groups. and on one hand he made a promise of not raising taxes, read my lips, no new taxes. and beyond that reason he was a one-term president was because he decided to break that promise. the most of important principles of why presidents come to seek higher office. but i also -- what a great example he was as a human being. not just as a father and husband. think what a great example he was in terms of longevity. 94 yeergs years old. our -- 94 years old. our longest living president in history. he valued productivity.
6:31 pm
achievement, the work ethic. perseverance. and being competitive. liz: jennifer grossman, former speech writer for george h.w. bush.

liz: president emmanuel macron caved on the fuel tax. the protests turned deadly. four people have died. benjamin hall has the story. reporter: this is a major u-turn on the part of the french government. they didn't expect to see this
6:36 pm
kind of anger on the streets. the carbon tax was to be used for economic investments. they were raising the cost of living and cost of work for many french people. the prime minister says the people's anger must be heard. but the measures would not applied until there had been proper and further debate. new taxes like these would raise $15 billion. the government is saying this will be covered by spending cuts. it remains to be seen if the protests will end here. many people believe macron's presidency is simply too
6:37 pm
damaged. ambulance drivers, airing their own grievances. macron has a 23% approval rating. he campaigned on the policy that he wouldn't capitulate to these protests. but now some feel he's at the whim of the protesters. it appears now very few of his policies will get through. d.c. sits up and takes notice. she is right here in the studio. great to see you. you have been write being this global push for carbon taxes. does raising taxes stop global
6:38 pm
warming? >> of course not. the fuel tax will cost consumers $8 billion euros a year it's a huge enormous tax. its contribution to get people to stop emitting co2 from their tail pipes is so miniscule you need a calculator to figure it out. they signed on to the paris climate accord. but in the broad sweep of things as people say again and again, without india and china and the major polluters being involved, all of this is token. liz: india and china are not in the paris accord so they are polluting. >> even some of the bigger things the polluters have agreed to are minimal and no one *
6:39 pm
thinks they will take concrete steps. where you have 20% unemployment among the youth that you would impose these tax, of course french certain seasons are furious. you have got the socialist elites like macron top down on taxes that hit the poor. hugely regressive. millennials are out in the streets no testing. this is right now france is in the news. but this is happening globally. you are seeing a revolt against carbon taxes. across europe, in germany, a huge backlash. belgium has been doing copy cast protests. you come up over to north
6:40 pm
america, ontario last year, earlier this year elected throughout a guy specifically because of his promise that he would do something about carbon taxes. the guy leading the conservative party in canada, this on what he was elected. arizona killed a new push four for renewable energy. people understand the cost of this. and it's being visited on the least economically advantaged and they are tired of it. everyone promises they will put it into a carbon mitigation scheme, but it doesn't. it goes into boondoggles. so we have had this discussion in this country. the leading proponent on the republican side in florida on the carbon tax was that we'll it
6:41 pm
back into the economy for the lowest income americans. liz: alexandria ocasio-cortez equated the fight about this against climate change to the civil rights movement. i don't see liberals selling their beachfront mansions because of climate change. let's take a listen to alexandria ocasio-cortez. >> this is going to be the great society, the civil rights movement, the moon shot, of our generation. that's the scale of ambition this movement will require. >> like a lot that comes out of alexandria ocasio-cortez's mouth is disconnected from reality. the tide is going exactly the
6:42 pm
opposite. one reason we haven't had this happen is our politicians have done a good job especially on the conservative side. places like france and germany it wool got pulled over a lot of voters' eyes. but here we have. she is talking about 100% renewable energy. up in arizona where i said they voted down this renewable initiative. it's taken now 6 years to get to 7%. that's required a 30% increase in electricity prices. imagine wait would take to get to 50. we are talk about thousands and thousands of dollars for electricity taxation to use renewables that we don't need to use. >> the steel industry crowd, it
6:43 pm
goes into the infrastructure grid. and they don't pay for infrastructure. what's going on with the yellow vests. >> it turns out france has some sort of rule that you have to carry these reflective vest in your car in case you have a roadside emergency. i just thought it was so classic that they are wearing these yet another regulation in plains they shall wearing them as a symbol of their frustration. liz: "the intimidation game," a "new york times" best seller. catch kimberly on fox nation's "deep dive." gas prices tumbling down 55 days in a row. guess which state has the
6:44 pm
cheapest. missouri. 26 states have at least one station where gas is less than $2. a new push to get to the bottom of whether the obama administration shut down the front clinton foundation. the outfit called judicial watch is suing the justice department. joe biden says he's the guy to be president of the united states for the democratic party. our panel picks it up next. the further into winter we go, the heavier i get. and while your pants struggle to support the heavier you, your roof struggles to support the heavier me. crash! and your cut-rate insurance might not pay for this. so get allstate, you could save money and be better protected from mayhem like me. mayhem is everywhere.

6:50 pm
the passing of bush as well as mccain. there is an era in american politics that is dying. it was warm to see a 95-year-old man stand up, even though he could not salute. liz: is it really dying? i think our country, people firmly believe that there are heroes still among us like the bush family willing to step up and believe in civic virtue. >> i think a civic virtue is a lost item. when we look at our life, our neighbor, our friend, our family, we need to say how can we make this country better. most of people seem to be caught up in short-term things about how can i make my bank account better and make my facebook better. we need to realize without this

country we are not all going to be here. liz: jenna bush with tears in her eyes seeing her grandfather lying in state. jeb arrived with his wife with colunba. >> there are heroes among us but right now we don't see that. we see people punching across the aisle. we don't see that level of respect against one another. the rhetoric in this country has completely changed. this is a time to reflect how do we get to the place where that rhetoric is dialed back. liz: the bush family is the second president to be the father of a president. we had one with john quincy
6:52 pm
adams. >> it's rare. bush 41's greatest gift is his family went into politics and the civic arena. it's not just his son. you look at his cousins, uncles, nieces. even his grandkids in the media. america is not big into dynasties, but with it many aimed at a purpose that's bigger that one's self you have to tip your hat and thank them for their service. >> jenna said each of his grandchildren thought he loved them the most of. >> my mom does the same thing with my children and my sister's children. it's about making everyone in

6:56 pm
didn't want to look puffier than president reagan. but he stood in that freezing weather and took the oath of office. it shows with that family as you look in this room, the bush family greeting everybody. president george w. bush shaking the hands of people offering their condolences. it shows what george h.w. bush instilled in the family. liz: president george h.w. bush cared so much about serving the country that he enlisted in the navy on his 18th birthday. this was a year after the japanese attacked pearl harbor. >> he heard that call to action and came in. i saw interviews with the president about him being shot
6:57 pm
down. he said through his entire life what affected him the most of not being shot down by the japanese, and not being rescued. but the two airators killed through that that he could not save. it's why he carries a special place in his heart for especially the men and women of the military. liz: profoundly powerful moment of the first lady and george w. bush with their children visiting and paying respect and honor to president george h.w. bush. your reaction to this? >> as we remember president bush and his service to the country, we need to also remember what a pro foundingly decent -- a profoundly descent father,
