new footage of president john f. kennedy shows him 50 years ago. it was four months before his assassination. he was playing golf at his family home in cape cod. here is caroline on her father's lap. the silent film released by the kennedy library offers a rare glimpse of some of the family's final joyful moments. >>steve: that is cool. meanwhile, police just identified victims of a deadly church bus crash in indiana over the weekend. this as investigators look into the possibility mechanical failure could be to blame. >> all were members of the colonial hills baptist church in indianapolis. the youth pastor, his pregnant wife and a chaperon, a mother of five, have all been identified as the victims of that
3:04 am
horrific crash. this bus was packed with teenagers and their families on their way back from a church camp. just a mile away from their home church when that bus ran off the interstate,s hit the median and flipped on saturday. >> our church grieves now. they don't grieve necessarily because of the loss, because god tells us in his word to be absent from his body is to be present with the lord. they are with god in heaven. we know that without a doubt. but we grieve the fact they're not here with us. >> dozens of others were injured including one teenager who remains in critical condition. investigators are looking into whether mechan i cal failure might be to blame. a two-year-old child was also injured in that crash. he survived and has been transported and released to the hospital.
3:05 am
>>steve: let's talk a little bit about this. over the last couple of months the president's people have taken a beating -- president's poll numbers have taken a beating mainly because of the scandals, i.r.s. to name a few. the administration decided to change the talking points. all those scandals are not real scandals. last week we've heard the president talk about phony scandals. yesterday jack jack lew who the president asked to investigate the i.r.s. scandal, he said the i.r.s. scandal, it's not a scandal. it's a phony scandal. ginned up by the republicans. here's jack. >> i think we have to look at the facts. there have been a lot of investigations, hearings, the justice department. there is no evidence of any political decision-maker who was involved in any of those decisions.
3:06 am
i think the attempt to try to keep finding that evidence is creating the kind of sense of a phony scandal. >>anna: until yesterday we were trying to figure out which one of these scandals is the phony scandal or are they all of them. we heard from family members from victims of benghazi, fast and furious, seal team six. you're thinking all these families are having a hard time with this and now we're hearing it is just the i.r.s. if it is the i.r.s. one, how does the secretary of treasury know -- how does jack lew know this if the investigation has not been complete? he was on chris wallace's show fox news sunday and chris had to ask him three separate ways and never got a clear answer. listen. >> how do you ask the i.r.s. chief counsel appointed by president obama what involvement he or his office had in all of this? >> chris, to be clear, there are 1,600 lawyers in the chief counsel's office and there was no suggestion that this went to the one
3:07 am
political person in that office. there is no evidence of it. >> no evidence of it? wait a minute. have you asked him? >> chris, i am leaving the investigation to the proper people who do investigations. i don't think it's appropriate for me to do the investigations. >> somebody there or somebody in the treasury department -- somebody in the treasury department asked william wilkins what he knew about this. >> there is no evidence that this went to any political official. >> there hasn't been an investigation. the just department investigation isn't complete. the inspector general never conducted an investigation. he conducted an audit. where is the investigation? >> an awful lot of time has gone into asking a lot of questions of a lot of people. we will cooperate with all of the ongoing investigations. >> chris is right to press jack lew on that topic because the american people want to know some answers about what really took place with the i.r.s. when you consider it, it's almost going back to the days when president obama
3:08 am
said there is no "there" there. actually something is there. it's called evasive. evasion. come up with the facts and let us know what happened. >>steve: you know what, kelly? if there wasn't a real scandal, why did all those people take the fifth? you take the fifth for an absolute reason. in the meantime, jack lew says america, this is all a phony scandal. don't worry, the administration is investigating itself. what possibly could go wrong? >> meantime there is something else going on. it is actually a pretty cool luncheon going on between barry and hillary. >>steve: barry? >> the president of the united states. president barack obama and former secretary of state hillary clinton, they will be meeting today for lunch. could it have some inkling of what could take place in 2016? is hillary the one who will run on the democratic
3:09 am
ticket? democrats are hoping she will replace the commander in chief. >>anna: i love how everyone is calling this the luncheon of the frenemies. we have heard they're having a lunch. if they wanted to keep it a secret, it would have been a secret. obviously they want to create some sort of buzz around it and that's what we're doing this morning. >>steve: remember in 2008 they hated each other's guts. they both wanted the nomination. he got it, and she eventually wound up with the secretary of state job. when you look at the clintons and the obamas, i don't think bill clinton had ever been to dinner at the white house until after she left the job. the two families did get together down at the george w. bush library dedication in dallas, texas, and one other time. she's been busy giving paid speeches and she's writing a book and the big news this morning is nbc, which clearly if you watch their
3:10 am
cable news outfit, has a bias to the left, sounds like they're putting together a gigantic four-hour valentine mini series just before she announces she's going to run. >>anna: a four-part mini series and the timing is a bit curious that it's leading up to the 2016 election. diane lane has been casted to play hillary clinton. i bet the liberals in hollywood were chomping at the bit to figure out who was going to play hillary clinton. usually very often you don't end up seeing big actors or actresses from the silver screen coming down to television but not the case. >> i think a lot of people would like to play the role of a bill clinton and hillary clinton because they have been fascinating to watch, although sometimes a tres bizarre when you see bill clinton and the days at the white house. you were talking about bill clinton and the president, the bill clinton speech during the campaign is
3:11 am
probably what saved his campaign. >>steve: absolutely. some at the time were going why would he come to the rescue of barack obama at this point because mitt romney was right there with him, and it looks like a deal was done, some said behind closed doors. some said i'm going to do this but you've got to support hillary, and it kind of looks like that. this four-hour mini series, two things that probably won't be in it: benghazi, probably not going to talk about that. what about the mess left at the department of state after she left? remember that diplomat accused of hiring prostitutes and drugs? i got a feeling it won't be in the movie. >>anna: i was reading it will start from 1998 on. you wonder if monica lewinsky and gennifer flowers will be in it? >> coming up, something else near and dear to a lot of people, and that is obamacare. obamacare call centers are
3:12 am
only hiring part-time workers. >>steve: why? >> the reason, we don't know. to avoid obamacare apparently. stuart varney is going to comment. >>anna: one of the biggest jewel heists in history, $53 million in diamonds gone. the hollywood connection straight ahead. ♪ ♪ ♪

business network, stuart varney. good morning. how hypocritical is this? this is something the obamacare said would not be happening for hotel, restaurants and anyone else hiring part-time employees. and now they're doing the same thing. >> this thing is descending fast. you've got chaos in the implementation of senator obamacare. now you've got a comedy of errors. in california they got the contract to get call centers where people would call in and get information on senator obama. here's how -- information on obamacare. here's how you sign up. they've got 204 positions available. 7,000 people apply. they start training 204 people on july 1. july 18, they hold off a minute because half of these people are full timers. the rest are part time and they don't get health care insurance. they've got to pay for it themselves. that's the farce here. people giving information about government care not
3:17 am
getting government care, which is extraordinary stuff. >>anna: initially they were thinking that these were going to be full-time positions and it was supposed to be an economic coup for the area and now they're going this is not so good. do you think this is deliberate from senator obamacae administration? >> i'm not a conspiracy thaoer rift but -- but you push people on to government care. once the government starts providing government care you as a voter will vote for the government which gives you the health care at somebody else's expense. that is socialized medicine. i think this was in the administration's mind all along. give them the goodies and they'll vote for you. i think that is at the heart of this thing.
3:18 am
>>anna: have businesses and economists started to see reprieve with this one-year delay? >> no. in fact, more food chains like white castle, for example, they have said no, when this thing is implemented, even if it is delayed for a year, we're hiring part-timers. now the government is hiring part time. it is ridiculous. >>anna: we're going to see you at what time today? >> 9:20 eastern sharp. >>anna: okay. 18 minutes after the hour on your monday morning. the man in charge with the i.r.s. agrees the targeting scandal is phony. plus it is supposed to be the happiest day of their lives but this couple of's wedding day high is about to come crashing down from that high. we'll talk about it next. ♪ i want a witness can i get ♪ can i get ♪ ♪ a witness hey! did you know that honey nut cheerios

3:23 am
these so-called phony scandals? let's bring in the head of the group linchpin for liberty was targeted by the i.r.s. hey, kevin. >> thanks for having me back. >>steve: i'm sure you heard we played the sound bite with the department of treasury jack lew saying there is no evidence this was political. it is a phony scandal. how has this phony scandal impacted you? >> augustine once wrote sweet were the visions of absurdity. the only thing phony about this scandal is how the obama administration is handling it. for 31 months the i.r.s. continues to obstruct and delay my tax steplt status. -- tax exempt status. >>steve: you would think with all the news coverage with how the i.r.s. essentially put on hold
3:24 am
these tea party and liberty groups, you would have thought they would have gotten some of them passed. 31 months later and still nothing for you? >> you would think if you were in that position that as soon as this came to light why would this continue to delay. but they continue to lie. fortunately the truth doesn't depend on what the obama administration says it is. if they don't master the truth, the truth will master them. >>steve: this is not phony to you, kevin. when you look at what has happened to you, i understand you did lose a $30,000 grant because of your testimony about this not so phony scandal. tell me what happened the day after you testified. >> yes. as you noted, the $30,000 grant that i testified before congress was bad. but to make that matter worse, on the day after i testified, i received notice from my biggest client, which is about 75% of my business, that due to my very public expression
3:25 am
of my political views in defending myself i would be losing that business. i would like the obama administration to tell my family this is a phony scandal. >>steve: that is something. what about the sound bite where jack lew said there is no suggestion, no evidence that this is political. yet, the one political appointee at the i.r.s., the chief counsel, mr. william wilkins, apparently nobody's talked to him. nobody's asked him if he was involved in it. >> as carter hall testified about ten days ago, there was a meeting on april 24, they have the, in the eisenhower executive office building which is part of the white house complex. that meeting lasted for over eight hours and it was attended by doug shulman and two other i.r.s. stafrs. the very next day william wilkins, political appointee of the obama administration issued new guidelines for how these conservative groups were to be treated.
3:26 am
>>steve: i'm sure that is a coincidence. i tell you what, kevin, if it is a phony scandal, why are all these officials taking the fifth? >> taking the fifth for something that is phony. it is a contradiction of how this started. it was lois lerner's orchestrated apology which the administration believed they were going to sneak through on a friday afternoon, that everyone would forget by monday, this is how it started. now the administration is saying it's phony? >>steve: you for one are not buying it. and i'm sure a lot of our viewers aren't. all right, do you have a special message before we go? >> yes, i do. thanks for saying that. it is my wife's birthday today. happy birthday, bonnie. i love you. thanks for reminding me, steve. >>steve: i just saved you buying her a four-dollar hallmark card. way to go. kevin, thank you very much. bonnie, happy birthday from

developed? >> i'm not against all police. i have good friend that are cops but the police have been dramatically militarized. in the 1980's the pentagon started handing out military equipment across the country, 17,000 police units. today when you see a swat team raid, watch youtube, they are shooting people. a case in detroit, a seven-year-old lying on her couch in a princess blanket, no knock, her door flies down, they shoot her on the couch, she is dead. the guy they were looking for was not in that apartment. he was two floors up. she died because of that. they have been sued. they got a good case. >>kelly: the book is called "a government of woes: the emerging american police state." good reading and good information the american people need to know. thanks for sharing it with us.

3:53 am
fact. a new research is showing texting makes it 23 times more likely that you're going to crash, but if you need more proof, check out this simulation. >> oh, oh drove off the road, right into a tree. what were you looking at there? the phone? two seconds, you could be off the road hitting a tree. >> anna: arrive alive tour is showing young drivers just how easy it is to crash while driving distracted or impaired. >> going 65 miles an hour. >> anna: does your teen-ager text and drive? >> you got to look at your phone. if your friends are texting. >> at red lights and stop signs i would. they always tell me not to text and drive and tell me how bad it is. but you never really listen to your parents. >> anna: this high school in long island is the latest stop on the arrive alive tour. >> it's texting while driving has become worse than driving while intoxicated. >> 11 teen-agers drive every day
3:54 am
from texting and driving. if we can get a motion for them to realize how dangerous it is, it's going to be safer roads for them and everybody else. >> anna: the younger generation, technology is a language they speak, which is why simulators like these are so helpful of the teens wear virtual reality goggles to show how texting and alcohol limit depth perception and peripheral vision. >> i was swerving. i drove off the road and then hit a tree. >> anna: better or worse than you thought? >> that's really bad. i thought i would swerve a little bit, but didn't realize how easy it is to lose concentration while texting. imagine if that was real life. i could hurt people or myself. any person who drives, this should be a requirement so you learn how dangerous it is to do these things. >> i would say not every kid is going to take this to heart, you know. obviously a lot of kids have to go out and learn things the hard way. hopefully if we reach a couple of them, we're doing some good. >> anna: it's not worth it, is

4:02 am
before flying off the highway and plunging 100 feet into a ravine. firefighters had to use saws to cut through the twisted wreckage. witnesses say it sounded like the bus may have blown a tire. the passengers who are from small towns around naples. there have been many accidents ton that stretch of roadway. police just identified the victims of a deadly bus crash in indiana. they are colonial hills baptist church pastor chad felt, his pregnant wife, courtney, and chaperone tanya. they were all killed. the bus packed with teen-agers and their families on the way back from church camp with just a mile from home when it ran off the interstate, hit a median and flipped. >> our church grieves now. they don't grieve necessarily because of the loss, because god tells us in his word to be absent from the body is to be present with the lord. they're with god in heaven right now. we know that without a doubt. we grieve the fact that they're not here with us.
4:03 am
we miss them. >> anna: wow. the bus driver told police his brakes went out just before the crash. happening today in washington, israeli and palestinian officials will sit down for peace talks for the first time in 30 years. israel's government approved the release of 104 palestinian prisoners before the talks. many criticized that move, but prime minister benjamin netanyahu called it a, quote, tough decision necessary for the good of the country. anthony wiener taking his search for redemption to church. the new york city mayoral candidate now comparing himself to a gps. >> anna: okay. wiener is vowing to stay in the race despite plummeting support after he admitted to sexting with even more women. his campaign manager has also resigned. those are your monday morning
4:04 am
headlines. >> steve: plus what we do every monday morning is joined by donald trump. good morning to you, mr. trump. >> good morning. >> steve: anna was talking about anthony wiener. he says he's going to stay in it. meanwhile, congressman peter king says he's not psychologically qualified to be mayor. david axelrod says americans will give second chances but not third. and the press secretary for bill clinton says the clintons would like to see this go away. what say you about mr. wiener? >> i think all of those statements are correct. he's a disaster. he's a sick guy. he shouldn't be running. he's got to drop out at some point, perhaps he won't. certainly his polls are absolutely abyss mal now. it's amazing. the second time was too much. the first time, amazingly -- i've known this guy for years. not a good guy. not a good person. not a good guy. but the second time was too much for the voters. >> steve: when you say he's a sick guy, what does that mean? >> there is something mentally wrong with him. he texts people.
4:05 am
and these could be young girls that are ten or 12 years old. he doesn't know, and showing his exposed body pose and sometimes his body with his face. he has a death wish. >> anna: do you think he feeds off this energy and off this media attention and that's why he's keeping his hat in the ring? >> no, he feeds off sexting. he feeds off the sickness and a perversion. he's a perverted guy. this is a disaster. and how he did barely well, he was leading or in second place a week ago and how that was happening, nobody young stood, especially the people that know him. and now the second, when he apologized and he resigned and he said it will never happen again, and then recently it happened again and they said how many people? he had no idea. that means there are a lot of them. he's a very sick guy and new york city does not need him. the city is doing very nicely and we do not need this.
4:06 am
>> steve: here in new york city, the local media, it's wall to wall wiener. >> anna: lots of jokes. >> kelly: something else people are look at, getting away from wiener and what's going on here in new york city is the irs because it's affecting everyone throughout the united states and on fox news sunday, chris wallace actually tried to get treasury secretary jack lew to talk about the irs scandal, even questioning him about all of this talk from jay carney, the white house press secretary and the president himself, talking about these scandals are phony. and we heard from jack lew and this is what he had to say about it. i'd like to get your comment after we hear it. >> i think that we have to look at the facts. there have been a lot of investigations. there have been a lot of hearings. ieg's, justice department. there is no evidence of any political decision maker who was involved in any of those decisions. i think the attempt to try to keep finding that evidence is creating the kind of sense of a phony scandal.
4:07 am
>> kelly: donald, what's your comments? >> i think when the head of the irs goes to the white house hundreds of times and the previous heads virtually never went there, i actually thought that this was a done deal. everybody admitted it on the administration side and they said we're going to clean it up. now they've taken a different tact. i heard the president's speech. i think mittcally it's smart of him to start doing this. they were getting lambasted. but the fact is this is a totally different tact. people admitted that it was true. it was literally over. it was true. and now all of a sudden they're calling it a phony deal. so they're trying to downgrade it and, you know, look, if is a world of politics, this is a country of politics and from their standpoint, i think they were being very badly hurt by the irs scandal. in particular the irs scandal and taking the tact now that it's a phony thing and benghazi was phony and everything that we've been reading about, the various scandals are all phony
4:08 am
and from a political stand points, maybe that's the best thing they can do. but it's very real and it was admitted. >> steve: yeah. in the last hour, we had a fellow on, kevin, he's the president and founder of lynchpins of liberty, a tea party group. still not approved and to him and his family, nothing phony about it. listen. >> the only thing phony about this scandal is how the obama administration is handling it. pretending we have not had our constitutional rights violated, yet for 31 months, the irs continues to obstruct and delay my application for tax exempt status. on the day after i testified, i received notice from my biggest client, which is about 75% of my business, that due to my very public expression of my political views and defending myself, that i would be losing that business. so i'd like the obama administration to tell my family that this is a phony scandal. >> steve: yep. not phony to him, donald. >> it's a rough situation. politics can be a rough game and
4:09 am
they're playing it tough and let's see what happens. a lot of people are badly hurt. a lot of people know this is fact. and we'll see what happens over a period of time. but they are trying to do and i think probably -- i don't know, let's see what happens with the supporters, democratic supporters. they're probably doing a good job, but people are not buying it. >> anna: as far as this irs scandal goes, it's hurting people's wallets and livelihood and psyche and feeling they've been targeted for their political values. we also heard from victims of benghazi and fast and furious who feel they've been part of these so-called phony scandals. but details, low level nsa analysts being allowed to spy on phone calls, they say they don't have hundreds or thousands, but trillions of phone calls they can be accesses. listen to glenn greenwald. >> low level analyst, private contractors like mr. snowden,
4:10 am
are able to do. the nsa has trillions of telephone calls and e-mails in their databases that they've collected over the last several years and what these programs are are very simple screens, like the ones that supermarket clerks or shipping and receiving clerks use. all an analyst has to do is enter an e-mail or ip address and it searches that database and let's them listen to the calls or read the e-mails, everything that the nsa has stored or look at the browsing history or google search terms. >> anna: he's who broke the story. this is big. what do you think? >> it's bad stuff. there is no question about it. i'm just wondering how many of my calls have they been listening to. >> steve: all of them! >> this is very bad. this is not the way it's supposed to be played. this whole concept of private contractors and they hire guys off the street. here is a guy without snowed -- snowden, without much of an education. some people say he didn't graduate from high school. and all of a sudden, he's got everybody's records and i happen to think he's a very bad guy,
4:11 am
whether he exposed something or not. he's a very bad gay and traitor and made it very tough for the country. this has to be handled delicately and it hasn't been and it's a terrible situation. >> kelly: you're right about that because it has to be handled delicately. the nsa chief going so far as to say that the information that edward snowden has released has actually hurt our program, not just nationally, but internationally as well in terms of protecting us from possible terrorist attacks. so it's really something that all of us have to be concerned about. particularly as it relates to our future attacks that could be coming. >> it's been very, very bad for us in terms of relationships with other countries and you even look at the way russia is dealing with us. they probably knew we're spying on them. i assume we're spying on them. but to have if come out so vividly is terrible and other countries that didn't have any idea, all of a sudden they've got their guard up.
4:12 am
it's really hurt us. it's been terrible. when i hear people trying to justify snowden like he's a wonderful guy and he did us a favor, here is a guy was hired as really a flunky and what he's done to this country, we have no friends. hey, look, our country is being terribly run. very simple. >> steve: just the fact that he would be able to at his fingertip, get that stuff. that says a lot about the stuff they're running things. >> taxicabs hashed to believe. >> steve: it is. by the way, congratulations. "celebrity apprentice" picked up for another season. i believe it's the 14th season. >> 14 seasons. can you believe it? ten years, 14 seasons. it continues to do great. we're casting and my biggest problem is i have to find time to do it. >> steve: sure. so you're casting. i understand you're going to be shooting in the spring. who do you want? >> well, we have some. i'm not really allowed to say, but we have some incredible people and hopefully it will be the best cast we've had. we have a great number of people that want to be on the show.
4:13 am
many people want to be -- you know, if you look at trace adkins, if you look at joan rivers and all of the winners, piers morgan, everybody has gone on to great success. john rich, you know about john rich who is a terrific guy also. they've all gone on to -- just tremendous success. everybody wants to be on the show. so we have a great group of people and i'll tell you what, you will be certainly, if not the first, you'll be right there. our 7:00 o'clock calls on monday morning, i hear your ratings on monday morning at 7:00 o'clock are very, very good. >> kelly: someone has been eavesdropping. >> you know what i get out of it, anna? i get nothing. >> kelly: i want to give you a suggestion. the guy i'm filling in forted, brian kilmeade -- >> anna: there he is. >> that wouldn't be a good idea. that wouldn't be a good idea because you'd be an automatic winner. everybody would know he would win and nobody would want to watch the show. brian is great.
4:14 am
>> steve: he'll be back tomorrow. thank you for joining us. straight ahead, the obama administration says benghazi, irs, nsa all phony scandals. colonel allen west responds to that coming up next cholesterol? and it tastes good? sure does! wow. it's the honey, it makes it taste so... well, would you look at the time... what's the rush? be happy. be healthy.

>> steve: the treasury secretary echoing the president's talking points, irs, nsa and benghazi, all phony scandals. how can the murder of four americans be called a phony scandal? let's ask former florida congressman and fox news contributor colonel allen west. clearly this is a calculation on the part of the administration to call it phony. but it's not phony. >> good morning, steve. you're absolutely right. without a doubt, you have the pr experts, the messaging experts and the spin meisters coming to the white house. you've already seen jay carney talk about phony and fake scandals and they use the word
4:18 am
middle class to get the american people away from focusing on the important issue of the economy. but jack lew came out yesterday and really just being another inept errands boy for the administration, it leads to something that's gone wrong there in the irs. when you look at the involvement of the head of the national taxpayer employer union, when you look at lois lerner, when you look at now the chief counsel for the irs, when you look at the former commissioner of the irs, this is why we have to have a select committee, a special prosecutor, something that really does get down to the nuts and bolts of what has happened. >> steve: colonel, if it's a phony scandal, why did a couple of the people you just mentioned take the fifth? you don't take the fifth in a phony scandal! >> you're absolutely right. something is there. something is going wrong. as you just had the guest on from nashville, tennessee, american lives are being affected and we haven't even talked about the fast and furious scandal where brian
4:19 am
terry lost his life and nobody is answering to that. benghazi, we tonight's have any answers to what happened there. we don't even know why ambassador chris stevens was there in the first place. >> steve: and to that point, we've got a new fox news poll, how closely are people watching the news on benghazi, 22% are right now. 37%, somewhat, which you can see is down from a month earlier, which suggested the administration is trying to rope a dope and not give out any new information and maybe it will go away. i was talking to a big democrat in new jersey politics yesterday and they said it's clearly a political calculation on the part of the white house. it might be smart politics, but at the same time, you've got the president of the united states responding on tape after every one of these things saying, the irs, the doj, all that stuff saying, people will be held accountable. you only do that if it's serious and now they're pretenning, nothing there. >> and no one is being held accountable.
4:20 am
no one is responsible. that, to me, is the most insulting thing to the american people. it is truly offensive to the folks who have lost loved ones or had their lives and livelihoods affected. but this is a political calculation because when you're the white house and you have so many people in the mainstream media who are really complicit and out there carrying water for you, they believe they'll get away with this. >> steve: sure. not a phony scandal to james rosen or those reporters and editors at the associated press who were targeted as well. lieutenant colonel allen west, thank you very much for joining us today from the beautiful city of bitten beach in florida. >> thank you. >> steve: what do you think about that? e-mail us. or twitter at "fox & friends." also kaupp, the audience -- also coming up, the audience at sea world could not believe what they were seeing. a whale stuck out of water and the trainers not doing anything to help. the guy who shot the video is coming up next. and beef, that's not from a cow.

4:26 am
him back in. this we want on pour ten minute -- for ten minutes. the crowd became furious. i told one of the employees works in the hit row. he -- exit row. he looked at me and said there was nothing wrong. the whale was just playing. i went back to the bleachers and began recording and you can hear the anger in the crowd. after about a minute of recording, sea world came on the loud speaker, tried to calm everyone down and for the next ten to 15 minutes, the crowd started stomping their feet. they were screaming and eventually two dolphin trainers came back and pushed him back in and the crowd clapped at that point. >> steve: as we're looking at it, it looks like the pilot whale is there on like a ledge in about six inches of water struggling. we saw the other whale come over to it, or a dolphin or whatever. sea world says this and would like to you respond. they said, the pilot whales come out on the ledge all the time
4:27 am
and always get back into the deeper water without any problem. the younger and more inexperienced animals like the one on the video, sometimes take a little bit longer because they haven't completely mastered the technique. the whale was never in danger, they say. what say you? >> i completely disagree. you could see that it's in distress. the other dolphins tried to come and push it back in. what's even more troubling is that sea world responded to some of the other media outlets saying this was a pilot whale that was previously injured and stranded and rescued by them. so the real question is, why would it even be in an entertainment show? >> steve: good question. we're waiting for sea world to contact us. all right. thank you very much for joining us today on this monday and sharing the video with everybody. >> anna: that video is tough to watch, but at the same time, we aren't animal experts, we don't know their behaviors. >> steve: 27 minutes after the top of the hour. it's not a rock concert. three million young people

so just not so much all at once. all right. thank you very much. we have been telling you about obamacare ever since it passed the house and the senate and signed by the president of the united states. right now, though, it is deeply unpopular. the latest poll shows that it has a disapproval rating of 50% and you want to repeal the law? 53% of you say right now, that's what we should do. it's interesting, the president of the united states sat down with the "new york times" and did an interview and said that once it is fully implemented -- keep in mind, coming up in october, that's when the state exchanges are supposed to open up and people are supposed to start buying their own insurance, although businesses got a one-year pass from the president. he says once people get it and it's fully implemented, they're going to love it. so why are we spending $700 million? >> steve: that's a good question? he said the pr push won't turn around public opinion.
4:36 am
only once you get it, will you like it. in the meantime, we are spending $700 million. >> anna: kind of like you have to pass the bill to find out what's in it. you have to spend the money -- it doesn't -- it seems like funny math. >> steve: plus they've hired all sorts of communication strategists to figure out how to get the message out. they probably should have done that a couple years ago. we did a story last week about how the white house has been enlisting movie stars and celebrities to push to young people this is a really good thing. you should go ahead and sign up because unless young people -- and i think they need close to 3 million, sign up for it, then the cost for everybody else is going to be through the roof. >> kelly: this campaign you're talking about will only go to several states. it's not going to go nationwide. again, why are we spending $700 million? >> anna: what states are they? they're the swing states. a lot of them are. >> kelly: is it a campaign pr move? >> steve: uh, yeah. >> anna: the other thing is yet the employer mandate got the delay for a year, but we're not
4:37 am
really seeing -- we asked stuart varney about this in our 6:00 o'clock hour, are we seeing a reprieve from this and he said no. businesses have to plan, so they're plan ago year out on this. but we'd love to hear from you. hits us up on twitter. we have more headlines on your monday morning. this is coming to us now, search crews just recovered the body of the best man killed in a boat crash on the hudson river in new york. mark lenin and bride to be lindsey stewart were killed when their boat hit a barge. they were with a group heading home from dinner. the other four victims, including the groom, are expected to be okay. >> my heart bleeds for brian and the stewart and bond family. words can't express how deeply sorry we are for them. >> anna: they had so much ahead. police say the driver of the boat was drunk. he is charged with vehicular manslaughter. he's no strange tore the law.
4:38 am
in 2010, he was convicted of drug possession. >> beth: a robbery so brazen, it's like a scene out of the movie, "to catch a thief." >> diamonds, have you ever had a better offer in your whole life? >> kelly: diamonds are exactly what this thief got and just like the movie, it happened at the same hotel. >> steve: coincidence? yes. >> kelly: $53 million worth of jewels stolen from the hotel in cannes. it happened during a jewel exhibition there. local media reports that a gunman actually walked in, filled a case with the jewels, then ran off. >> steve: maybe they should have stopped him before he actually filled up the case with jewels. you might say this robber got what he deserved. two burglars broke into a store to steal cigarettes. as one of them tried to get the goods, the entire shelf fell on top of him. despite the road block, the duo escaped before the cops arrived. >> anna: here is one for you,
4:39 am
miley cyrus bearing it all. the 20-year-old star posing nude for mark jacobs. it's the protect the skin you're in campaign. the image is on a t-shirt and being sold to raise money for skin cancer research. i think that's how she's getting around the -- >> steve: she's a long away from hannah montana. >> kelly: this is an amazing scene in rio. more than 3 million people pouring into the copa cabana beach, not to see the scantily clad people, but to hear pope francis hear his final mass in brazil. he ended his visit with a message to the youth to spread god's word. >> steve: will we see revival with the young people in the catholic church? joining us now is fox news religion contributor, father jonathan morris. >> those images are amazing. >> steve: those kids were so excited.
4:40 am
over 3 million. i remember being in a world youth day with you here in yonkers when the pope was -- the last pope was here a yum of years ago. the excitement in brazil was palpable. >> that's a four-mile stretch, the images we're seeing. four mile stretch of beach and i work at the catholic channel at sirius xm as well and the reporters we sent down there were telling us that just to be down there among the crowd of young people who were there really seeking god, you know. a lot of people said wow, the catholic church now has this superman in pope francis. i don't think that's it. i mean, i saw him in rome just walking across saint peter's square before he was elected pope. nobody was going after him. nobody was following him. very simple guy. but he's now in a position in which he's speaking the truth in love in such simplity, saying if you have authority, that's
4:41 am
supposed to be about service. not power. another thing is, let's get back to the basics of the christian faith, which means living simply and loving others. he said to them, i've got three words for you as you leave from here, go without fear to serve. go without fear to serve. that's something you can take home with you. >> steve: that's a message to the kids. >> anna: i was watching these pictures with you live on "fox & friends" yesterday and our jaws were on the floor. you say we need to not -- christians anyway, need to not just leave it to the pope. everybody needs to get out there and evangelize. how do you do that? what kinds of message should young people hear in the states, walk away with to evangelize without stepping on people's toes. 'cause there were protesters there. >> pope francis took the name francis from saint francis of assisi and he said very clearly, preach the gospel and when necessary, use words. preach the gospel, and when necessary, use words. >> anna: by behavior.
4:42 am
>> live a life that attracts people to do good and enter into a friendship with god, a friendship with god. that's the simple message. and young people are obviously rebelling against a culture and going after this simple message. >> kelly: it was a fascinating scene to watch and what the pope is really saying, influence the culture where you are. >> that's right. >> kelly: doesn't matter what you do. >> you should get up next to him and preach. >> anna: and sing. >> steve: father, thank you very much. >> thanks, guys. >> steve: straight ahead, the movies may be the only play where a dance-off if the government gets its way. why? we're talking regulation nation. we got an update coming up. >> anna: and nascar going to pot? >> marijuana. >> anna: is this real? that controversial ad touting
4:43 am
pot as the new beer shown during a nascar event. we'll explain. >> kelly: wow. >> one without all the calories and serious health problems.
4:44 am
4:45 am
4:46 am
>> steve: quick headlines on this monday morning from the control room. a deal on student loan rates could happen this wednesday. the u.s. house of representatives expected to go along with the senate compromise. it links interest rates to the financial markets. if it goes through, undergrads could borrow at rates as low as 3.4%. and incredible video showing the moment a car is suddenly engulfed by a landslide in china. you can see two guys are able to escape. moments later, another passenger emerges from the car. a fourth person was eventually freed.
4:47 am
>> anna: all right. the movies may be the only place for a dance-off or walkhas thon. these fun, popular ways to raise money for charity may soon be illegal. are you doing the hand jive with me at home? joining us to explain this week's regulation nation is republican strategist nike neily. good morning to you. >> good morning. so this just seems very bizarre. >> anna: in alabama, you can spend between 30 and 90 days behind bars and 50 to $500 in fines for being involved in one of these? explain that one. >> exactly. and in alabama, it is illegal to participate in a marathon endurance contest. so a dance athon. so to promote it, participate in it, or to participate in more than one over the course of 48 hours, which is weird 'cause you can't participate in one at all. but yeah. you're not allowed to do it at all or you'll be subject to 30 to 90 days in jail.
4:48 am
that's a marathon prison sentence. and pay a fine as well. >> anna: it sounds crazy. next up, we have bottle rockets in new jersey. some people like to have these as toys in the backyard or businesses. say toys r us has some. they are going to be regulated and need a permit as well? >> exactly. this is model rockets are no longer just -- is also province. not only they regulate the age of how old you are to be -- for how powerful a rocket you can buy, but also how much you can store. if you store more than 220 pounds, you need a permit. again, so boy scout troops, toys r us, if they're not aware of these laws, they can pay hefty fines. >> anna: you would want to make sure everything is safe and kosher, so you can see both sides of it on that one. also disorderly homes in
4:49 am
georgia. these people can get into trouble for having a messy house? >> yeah. it's funny. it sounds like it's a law written just upon university of georgia students, but it's been on the books for a while. it's unlawful to have a home that can lead to gambling or disturb your neighbors. you're subject to a fine and up to a year in jail. it's written so broadly that it's scary because they are stilling people in jail for stuff like this these days. if scarlet o'harrah making a dress out of her curtains, is that disorderly? nobody knows. >> anna: thank you so much for your time today. >> thanks. >> anna: regulation nation. some neighbors are wishing they lived in georgia 'cause they've got that one neighbor that is getting under their skin. coming up on "fox & friends," just lunch or is campaign 2016 getting heated up? why president obama and hillary clinton are having a private meal at the white house today.
4:50 am
nascar lighting up more than engines. >> marijuana, less harmful than alcohol. for more -- >> anna: that controversial ad touting pot as the new beer shown during a nascar event. is that a good idea? what nascar says about it this morning. >> one without all the calories and serious health problems. it doesn't cause hangovers or overdose death -- ♪

4:54 am
serious health problems. it doesn't cause hangovers or overdose deaths and not link to do violence or wreckless behavior. marijuana, less harmful than alcohol. >> kelly: you just saw that. that ad ran for hours at the indianapolis motor speedway until it was finally pulled. why was it ever played in the first place? here to weigh in on this issue, the head of the national faith-based coalition and former drug addict, beneficiary allen who championed the cause of getting over addictions. what's going on here? >> you know, that's a good question. good morning to you. i have to first tell you this ad is certainly outright fabrication, misleading and marijuana project should be sued for false advertisement. what a horrible thing to do and
4:55 am
nascar claiming they missed this, we are really wondering if they could have been in cahoots with this advertisement. very, very bad, very, very bad thing to happen. >> kelly: let me point this out, we've got a statement from the company that the jumbo tron that it ran on and say we in no way support marijuana at family events. we didn't expect this ad to be interpreted the way it did. we don't want anything to do with it anymore. is that enough? does that meet the muster that you're talking about? >> absolutely not. first of all, we expect nascar and godly media to do a better job than making such a egregious mistake at a family event and to allow such a misleading commercial, although it's 30 seconds, to be played at such a
4:56 am
wonderful event. we could completely understand that beer cannot be a -- marijuana cannot be the next beer. >> kelly: the company spent $2,200 for this ad. it ran 72 times. now they're basically stating they want their money back. what do you say to that? >> well, you know, the question is what were they smoking and i think many of those individuals are smoke their own product. in fact, why don't they put that money to good work and put it towards education or, in fact, why don't the marijuana policy project do a commercial and apologize to the great citizens of indianapolis for running such -- >> kelly: i've got to go, but i appreciate your sentiment and thanks for bringing it to light and sharing your insights on it. thank you very much, sir. >> thank you. >> kelly: jack lew is heading up the irs investigation. one problem with it, though. there hasn't been an

country. john mccain's prisoner of war cell mate passed away. he passed away after a long illness. he was held captive for 5 1/2 years before being freed in 1973. he served as a marine in the pacific during world war ii and was an air force pilot in the korean and vietnam wars. in a statement, senator john mccain said this: he was the bravest man i ever knew and his fierce resistance and resolute leadership set the example for us in prison of how to return home with honor. they earned more than 70 medal, including the medal of honor. he was 88 years old. a good man there. those are your headlines. >> steve: tough story. meanwhile, let's bring in bret baier, he joins us every monday now from his perch overlooking the capitol. >> good morning. >> steve: over the last couple of months, the president's poll numbers have really taken a shellacking, heading the wrong direction for the white house, in part because of all the scandals. you got the irs scandal, nsa, doj scandal, you got benghazi,
5:05 am
fast and furious before that. what they've done over the last couple of weeks is they've been trotting out this new line of talking points and that is they call those phony scandals. clearly, bret, what they're trying to say is those republicans are lying to you. we didn't do anything wrong. >> yeah. you heard a lot of that from secretary lew this weekend trying to say that the irs is another one of those, quote, phony scandals, saying there is no evidence that a political appointee had any say in what was happening with the irs targeting conservative groups and also saying that progressive groups were targeted. the problem with that is that the investigation is still ongoing and you talk to republicans up on the hill, they feel like they're getting closer and closer to learning more about where this was going and possibly political appointees and they're hoping to get lois lerner to come up and testify,
5:06 am
possibly even giving her immunity to do so. >> anna: bret, the treasury secretary lew took this to the sunday shows yesterday. here is what he had to say to chris wallace on fox news sunday. >> have you asked william wilkins, the irs chief counsel appointed by president obama, what involvement he or his office had in all this? >> chris, to be clear, there are 1600 lawyers in the chief counsel's office and there was no suggestion that this went to the one political person in that office. there is no evidence of it. there has been -- >> no evidence of it, wait a minute. have you asked him? >> chris, i lead the investigation to the proper people who do investigations. i don't think it's appropriate for me to do the investigation. >> somebody in the treasury department asked william wilkins what he knew? >> there is no evidence that this went to any political official. >> there hasn't been an investigation.
5:07 am
the justice department investigation isn't complete. the inspector general never conducted an investigation. he conducted an audit. so where is the investigation -- >> aen awful lot of time has gone into asking questions of a lot of people. i'm not saying it's done and we will cooperate with all of the ongoing investigations. >> anna: critics say divert, divert, divert. so bret, what do you think? chris asked him the same question three different times, three different ways. why wouldn't he answer it? >> there wasn't an answer there. so either william wilkins wasn't asked or there is more to this investigation that has yet to play out. what the president, what the treasury secretary, what the administration is trying to do is to portray that there is no there there in any of these things so that they can move on to the next battle. there will still be a lot of investigation up on capitol hill on the matter of what the terminology they use is. >> kelly: so there is something there and we'll find out what's there 'cause the investigation
5:08 am
continues. >> i hope so. >> kelly: on to the next battle. that's the fact that the president has some upcoming battles with congress on budget issues, the economy, and trying to find out what we're going to do with our spending. we actually know that president obama had an interview with "new york times" discussing this and it's fascinating what he had to say. let's see if we can check this out real quickly before you comment. >> if the only message from some of these folks is no on everything and sit around and tradele my thumbs for the next 1200 days. >> what do you say about that? he gives us an interview to the "new york times" and we know through jack lew that the president intends not to negotiate with congress. >> yeah. on the debt ceiling specifically, kelly. and listen, he's said this line before that he believes that republicans are acting sometimes because he supports something
5:09 am
that they will not because he's behind it. i don't know if that plays out in every scenario that we've seen in the back and forth on capitol hill. the bottom line, he hasn't had a good track record negotiating with the hill and whether you blame republicans for that or the white house for that, it's not been a good track record. we are getting up to the debt ceiling. $16.7 trillion, probably just after labor day. and as we know, some republicans use that as a leverage point to get more spending cuts that they don't think the administration is ready to do. >> kelly: sure. >> steve: the delicious irony about the president and debt ceiling is when he was a u.s. senator, he voted against raising the debt ceiling when george bush was president. now he's got the keys to air force one and it's all different. >> yes, it is. and he's talked about that, how it's politics. listen, the bottom line is that you're going to have to -- washington is going to have to get past this operating on a
5:10 am
cliff mentality. you get up to the cliff and either you fall off or deal. and that's basically what we've been dealing with for the last couple of years. >> anna: there is a big lunch today at the white house. hillary clinton is going to be sitting down with president obama for a lunch that we aren't sure what they're talking about. what do you suspect is going on here? >> yeah. there is a lot of tongues wagging in washington about this lunch and what it really means and what we should read into it with the potential 2016 bid tha. sometimes a lunch is just a lunch. you never know. >> steve: yeah, right. [ laughter ] >> i will say this, there are a couple of big names in the obama campaign apparatus who just signed on to ready for hillary. the pac getting ready for 2016 and so a lot of people are looking at that as kind of laying the groundwork.
5:11 am
>> steve: i got a feeling tonight at 6:00 p.m. eastern time, we'll have a complete wrap-up of the lunch between the two of them, the former secretary of state and the president on bret baier's program. thank you very much. >> we'll try to get a menu. >> steve: please do. we're dying to know what they have. >> kelly: meantime, coming up, is the american dream officially out of reach? shocking details from a brand-new study with peter johnson, jr. that's next. >> anna: and it's a side of john f. kennedy that's been locked away for 50 years. the brand-new video. stick around.
5:12 am
5:13 am
5:14 am
>> kelly: welcome back. president obama vowed to turn the economy around, but a shocking new survey suggests the
5:15 am
american dream is fading fast. it claims 46.2 million citizens are living below the poverty line and 79% of them will face near poverty at some point in their adult lives. if the white house is so determine to fix the economy, why are so many people struggling to get by? fox news legal analyst peter johnson, jr. is here to weigh in. >> good morning. >> kelly: this is staggering. when i was reading this last night, i could feel the pain of a lot of americans who find themselves below the poverty. >> this is a tremendous amount of pain. there is not enough hope and hopefully the american dream continues to live in our hearts and minds and aspirations. but for a lot of americans, the poverty line is too close. so when you talk about almost 80% of americans facing some form of poverty or unemployment in their lifetime, being on aid for more than a year, living 150% above the poverty line,
5:16 am
that is something that crosses racial barriers in america. hispanic and black americans face poverty three times greater rate. but when you look at the newest statistics, 15% of americans are considered poor. 46.2 million americans. americans age 35 to 45 have a 23% risk of poverty compared to 17% risk 40 years ago. when you look at the invisible poor, kelly, 19 million white americans living below the poverty line, you're seeing statistics that we haven't seen ever in this country. so what it shows is we aspire to economic opportunity for all. but what we're seeing is maybe there is less economic opportunity for all. so not only are communities of color being affected by a lack of hope, a lack of opportunity, a lack of jobs, so are white
5:17 am
communities based on education -- >> kelly: peter, because of that, because of the fact that now you have white americans, black american, hispanic american, all experiencing this high degree of poverty, you have to hope that there would be some change. >> absolutely. i think that's what we're seeing in this study by professor rank at washington university in st. louis. when you have 7.6% unemployment, when you have a 1% growth rate, when food stamp recipients have grown 46% over the last five years and you see this mainstreaming of economic deprivation, you say to yourself, what are we doing wrong? what can we do better? how do we lift all of ourselves up to achieve the american dream that we so aspire to? these are very staggering, as you say, statistics and sobering and do call for some change in the way -- >> kelly: you and i, all americans have to do -- we can always try. because the american dream should not be an american
5:18 am
nightmare. all right. peter, thanks. we're going to keep this american dream alive this morning and so can you. what this bus has to do with it, that's part of it. we'll show you what's going on with that. then, it's one of the biggest jewel heists in history. you heard us talk about this. $53 million in diamonds gone. with a hollywood connection to this ahead [ male announcer ] don't miss red lobster's four course seafood feast. choose youroup, salad, entree, plus dessert all ju $14.99. me into red lobster, and sea od differently. right now, go to redlober.com for $10 off 2 select entrees. good monday through thsday.

5:31 am
meanwhile, there could be even more bombshells this week in the nsa spying scandal. that could mean the agency knows even more about us than we think. peter doocy is following this from the white house and he joins us live. peter? >> we're hearing now that the nsa has a database containing trillions of phone calls and e-mails they've collected over the last few years that is coming to us from the journalist glenn greenwald who edward snowden initially spilled the beans to about these nsa surveillance and data collection programs. greenwald is also saying now that it's as easy for an nsa analyst at their desk to access your information as it is to use the self-checkouts counter at the grocery store. >> there are legal constraintses for how you can spy on americans. you can't target them without going to the -- these systems allow analysts to listen to whatever e-mails they want, whatever telephone calls, browsing history, microsoft word documents. >> meanwhile, here in dc, there
5:32 am
are now calls from both sides of the aisle to rein in that government surveillance. >> i really believe that we should limit this meta data collection. the notion that we're going to collect all of the phone records from everyone living in an area code on the offchance someone in that area code may be a suspect at a later time goes way too far. >> but there are supporters of surveillance programs who say national security will suffer if these programs are discontinued. >> in this program, zero privacy violations, 54 violent terrorist attacks thwarted. that's a pretty good record. that's great record and that tells me this is one program that works to protect your privacy and live up to our constitutional obligation in congress that says we must provide for the general defense of the united states. >> glenn greenwald is headed here to washington on capitol hill the day after tomorrow, wednesday, to meet with democrats and republicans at an
5:33 am
event on domestic surveillance. back to you. >> steve: all right. thank you very much. glenn greenwald also says he's got a big story coming out. the details, how it all works there. what's troubling is the fact, forget about the meta data, it looks like the information you would see on your phone bill. he says, according to snowden, that they're recording trillions of our actual phone calls and all they need is an e-mail address or ip or phone number, you tap it in and they can listen to everything you said on the phone. that's scary. >> kelly: it is indeed. we'll continue to follow what's going on with that. in the meantime, time for fox news headlines. search crews recovered the body of the best man killed in a boat crash on new york's hudson river. mark lenin and bride to be lindsey stewart were killed when their boat hit a barge on friday night. they were with a group heading home from dinner. the other four victims, including the groom, are expected to be okay. >> i'm just happy that he was
5:34 am
found and the family has closure and we can move on and the worrying and the waiting is over. >> kelly: police say the driver of the boat was drunk. he's charged with vehicular manslaughter. he is no stranger to the law. in 2010, he was convicted of drug possession. >> steve: video of the car crash that killed michael hasting, the journalist who wrote the expose on general stanley mccrystal in rolling stone. it appears he was speeding before he crashed into a tree. the impact turning his car into a big fire ball. the video is from a nearby restaurants. authorities did an autopsy on hastings, but the results have not yet been released to the public. >> anna: here is one for you, a robber just like a scene out of the movie "to catch a thief". >> diamonds. have you ever had a better offer? >> anna: diamonds are what the thief got. $53 million worth. just like the movie, it happened
5:35 am
at the very same hotel, the carlton in cannes. the hotel, a favorite of hollywood's rich and famous, it happened during a jewel exhibition. local media reports a gunman walked in, filled a case with jewels and ran off. two members of a pink panther gem gang escaped from prison a few days ago. >> steve: coincidence? >> kelly: allall right. airport delays ever make you feel like doing this? sometimes you might be tempted. that's what happened in china. china spent billions to build some of the most modern airports in the world. research shows they have some of the worst delays in the world and out of the 22,000 flights, that left beijing last month, 18% were on time. thus, the fisticuffs. >> anna: that's what i feel like doing several times a week.
5:36 am
>> steve: meanwhile, extreme weather causing major power problems at the philly airport. american airlines flights had to be canceled after floods knocked out power to the terminal. maria molina life with the rest of your travel forecast for this dry monday morning here in new york city. >> yeah. it's a beautiful start to the day here. but you did mention philadelphia. they actually set their all-time record high in terms of record rainfall out there with seven to eight inches of rain picked up in just one day. we're talking incredible amounts of rainfall, as well as expected across parts of the center of the country. eight to 12 inches expected in sections of kansas, where you're from, steve. we could be looking at more flooding issues out there. temperature wise, a little bit on the cool side early this morning. we're still in the 50s out there in minneapolis and also in the city of chicago. 60 in cleveland. this afternoon, temperatures are only going to be widespread into the 70s. below average, a little on the
5:37 am
cool side for so late in july. otherwise texas, well into the 90s as usual. 99 for your high temperature in san antonio. and again, the center of the country not only expecting heavy rain and potential flooding, but also severe weather, damaging winds in excess of 60 miles an hour and also some large hail and isolated tornadoes will be possible out there. again, it includes not just kansas, but parts of the texas panhandle and also oklahoma. now let's head over to steve, anna and kelly. by the way, i've been working on this story for a couple of days or nights. you know how long it takes for women to work on your hair? it's so much work every single morning. you have to wake up early -- >> steve: hold on, anna. there is a woman behind you -- maria, rather. there is a woman trying so desperately to get that sign on television. >> hey, good morning. you are from columbus, ohio. right? i was talking to you a little earlier and you're visiting new york city. >> yes. >> having a good time.
5:38 am
this is our restaurants in westerville, ohio. >> in the 70s over there. good morning and thank you so much for visiting us and stopping by. and everyone else as well. >> steve: a free commercial. >> anna: they have good eggs there. >> what's your name? >> meghan. >> do you have a hard time in the morning doing your hair? >> no. i don't do anything. >> well, then, i don't want to talk to you anymore. [ laughter ] it takes me 30 minutes to an hour to blow dry my hair and style it and as my hairdresser will let you know, it's very time consuming. a lot of work here. we actual will he have these overnight hairdos. that's actually me on another story on location. you can see how frizzy my hair is. it was very humid that day. your hair is frizzy at times. that day it was 90, 95% humidity. i was on a shoot and my hair was look good in the beginning and eventually over several hours, it got very frizzy and curly. now we want to get to these
5:39 am
overnight hairdos. >> steve: what's a girl to do? >> you're supposed to, if you do an overnight hairdo, style your hair before you go to bed and then sleep in the hairdo, you wake up, you take a shower, don't wash your hair and let go of the hairdo and your hair is supposed to be styled already. >> anna: so you have four different ones you're going to show us. the first one is the ponytail braid. >> that one actually worked out pretty good. there is my before picture. you can see just the regular braid. >> steve: are these selfies? >> yeah. that's when i have my make-up on. i decided on the first one at least to not scare you. so you can see there is some waves. the braids, it's pretty well-known, at least for most women, if you leave your hair overnight in a braid, you'll wake up with waves in it. kinds of like that crimped lick. the next one is my favorite, the twist bun. all i did -- there is me with no make-up. sorry. >> steve: you look great. >> so what i did was i twisted my hair into a little bun and in this case, i did two.
5:40 am
you're supposed to do several. look at the after. how great is that? >> anna: i love it. >> right. all i did was sleep in that. that's amazing. >> kelly: you also have one that's a high pony tail. >> this one was supposed to give me some volume. you do a regular ponytail at the top of your head. i didn't really like it. so i consider this is a hair don't. don't do this. it kind of gave me a kink at the top of my head all around. you can't really tell from there. but on the back of my head, i had an awkward kink. >> anna: and you get a crease in the back of your hair. >> the head hair wrap. this is for a straight look. kind of time cooping. five it ten minutes to wrap your hair all the way around. you stick in bobby pins. but then you wake up with smooth hair. >> steve: that's a good trick. >> right. and you take them all out. it takes five minutes to take them all out. but the after is worth it. >> steve: finally, let's talk
5:41 am
buns. >> the high bun, it's supposed to be a messy high bun at the top of your head. i don't really like it either. it's supposed to give you volume and waves, kind of the messy look. a little too messy for me. >> anna: aside from that one, all the other ones, our hair and make-up people are going, oh -- because you look so good in all of them. you could roll out of bed and come to work. >> kelly: maria, one thing you should never bring back is a bee hive or the wild jersey girl hair. >> the poof? the snooki hairdo? maybe tomorrow. >> steve: i live in jersey. i like that. all right, thank you very much for sharing those selfies. they look terrific. >> thank you. >> anna: coming up on "fox & friends," halos on the battle grounds. the incredible story behind these awesome pictures are coming up. >> kelly: and just in time for the 2016 election, nbc is planning to run a mini series about hillary clinton. will it be the full story or

cheese biz coat, go get one. >> steve: the next presidential election might be three years away, but that's not song one of the most biased networks from jumping on the hillary clinton band wagon. they've ordered a four-hour mini series based on the former first lady and her time as secretary of state. the news editor for town hall is here and a fox news contributor and joins us live from d.c katy, good morning. >> good morning. >> steve: finally nbc is going to tell the truth and reveal all when it comes to hillary clinton. >> exactly. if anyone can do it, nbc can do it, right? but on a serious note, we keep hearing bill clinton, the character for him hasn't been cast yet. i'm wondering who is going to play ambassador chris steves and tyrone woods. are they really going to talk about the most controversial parts of hillary clinton's tenure at the state department and the fact is, she really
5:47 am
hasn't had that great of a record during her time in that position and i doubt we're going to see the most controversial aspects really portrayed in an honest way from nbc. they're talk being this as if they need more ratings, but as we know with the booting of jay leno, they're really not that interested in getting more ratings. they're really more in pushing their own agenda. >> steve: you could be right. if anybody watches msnbc, you know they surely are in the tank for the president of the united states. but since his poll numbers have been going way down and their ratings have been going down, there is kind of a bit of a buyer's remorse. maybe they're ready for the next story. hey, let's talk hillary! >> right. exactly. so even into president obama's first term where you hear lot of buyer's remorse from voters and big backers of hillary clinton in the beginning after she lost president obama. they're kind of seeing the second chance to redeem themselves and they're pushing hillary forward. the good news is nbc is saying, we don't know when this is going to come out.
5:48 am
they're probably going to try to get it in before the election kicks off and they have to comply with campaign finance laws that require equal time for all candidates. i'm sure it will come out before they have to start giving both of those candidates equal time because, of course, they're not pushing for one or the other in this case, right? >> steve: sure, that's a good point. you made a good point about who would play the navy seals and the ambassador killed in benghazi. so benghazi, you got to figure, even though they'll say it will be authorry, you got to figure that's just another one of those phony scandals drummed up by the republicans. that won't be there. and neither will probably the mess after she left the state department, there was that diplomat accused of the prostitution and underage minors and some drugs and stuff like that. i got a feeling that's not going to be in it either. >> right. the obstruction of justice, obstruction of inspector general's report in the investigation into the state department i doubt will be touched. although diane lane is a fantastic actress, i doubt she
5:49 am
can act as well as hillary clinton did when she lied about that youtube video in front of flag-draped caskets of americans as they came home from benghazi. it's going to be hard for her to top that performance. >> steve: katy, thank you very much for joining us live. >> thanks. >> steve: now 11 minutes before the top of the hour. next up, have you seen this? incredible images coming from the battlefield. look at that glow. the science and the awesome story about those helicopter halos. first, let's check in with bill hemmer for a preview of what happens in ten minute. >> good morning to you. stunning pictures there. stunning numbers. stuart varney will analyze this. new evidence on benghazi. one man's story of waiting 20 hours before medical help arrived. the latest on anthony wiener's campaign. several developments over the weekend there. and has the country stopped listening to its president? brit hume will analyze that. we'll see you in ten minutes on "america's newsroom"

5:55 am
a junker car or anything like that, you've seen a muffler dragging along the road. you see a shower of sparks come up. that's because when the muffler drags across the road, little tiny pieces of metal are getting kicked up from the ground into the air. and then as they react with the oxygen, they burst into flames. this is called pyro ferocity. it is spontaneously igniting in air. this doesn't happen with just a normal block of metal. it has to be finely powdered or thin sheets and not all metals do this. back to the helicopters, it turns out that at the edge of helicopter blades, at the tips, there are these abrasion strips which prevents helicopter blades from becoming too damaged and pitted when it's in a harsh environment like a desert. but it also turns out that these metals are pyrophoric. so when a helicopter descends into a desert environment, it inevitably kicks up all this dust and sand and sand is
5:56 am
actually harder than the metals that make up these wing tips. so these spinning wing tips spinning at hundreds of miles an hour impact the sand and the sand kicks up tiny, finely ground pieces of metal and they ignite in the air and that's this little galaxy, shower of sparks that you see. >> steve: you have done a very good job of explaining exactly how that works. kyle hill with scientific american, thank you very much for joining us this morning from chicago. great description. >> thank you for having me. >> kelly: who knew science could be so beautiful. >> anna: again, unique to that area because of all the dust and the sand. we have more "fox & friends" coming up in three minutes. don't go anywhere ♪ ♪
