[applause] >>brian: the coffee mugs are empty. >>elisabeth: i can't do everything right. >>brian: how was it waking up? >>elisabeth: a little more difficult than i thought. i thought i'd get a call from you guys. wake up! thanks for meeting me here. >>brian: thanks for being part of the show. the bigger news is the new set. >>steve: you were here on the last day of the old set. as a matter of fact, a little later on you will see us blow up the old set and what happens. behind that door is the new set. all we have to do is ring
the doorbell. >>elisabeth: there's a doorbell? >>steve: you don't knock and use the doorbell. that's like belts and suspenders. >> good morning. >> welcome! >>steve: heather nauert. >> heard a lot of -- a lot about you. >> amazing. >> you guys can cle9d >>steve: we've got this brand-new wooden floor. this is fantastic. we turned the studio into something more functional. right here we've got a living room and we based this on the house you grew up in. >>elisabeth: i have tears in my eyes right now. memories are coming. >>steve: this is kind of rec room area where if we have a band, we'll have the band set up. we'll dbt involving three people. and before we go any
further, this is kind of sentimental to brian and i because we were on the old curvy couch for many, many years. >>elisabeth: i know. >>steve: first, i forgot. this is where maria and also heather are going toulñ be. >> these are our spots right here. >>brian: over here. [music playing] >>steve: ladies and gentlemen, the brand-new curvy couch. [applause] >>elisabeth: i'm going to take a seat, make myself right at home. >>brian: we've got the apple computer. i don't see any wires. >>steve: you're$?rvñ right. we're wireless. >>elisabeth: i can't believe this is happening right now. >>brian: it's a long time coming. we're very excited you're here. the first time you've been on the show, on the show before as a guest. i know what a great athlete you are. it's great to have a window in the backdrop to have people look in. how long did we sign up for you? 20 or 30 years?
>>steve: all i know is "fox & friends" for this monday starts right now. and that's where we'll roll the animation in the future. >>brian: let's take it from the top. >>elisabeth: i am not leaving. it took a long time to come 0 to this curvy couch. i'm not getting up. >>brian: can we do something? >>elisabeth: no. >>brian: you say no. let's do something i think is important. let's talk about where you've been and what brought you here today. first off, where you just left? you left some women, and there they are. >>elisabeth: oh. 1972, i'm not sure. a while ago. but those are my friends. >>steve: i read in one of the papers today that you loved sitting there at that table, and particularly watching barbara walters because it was like a masters course every day on how to do an interview. >>elisabeth: absolutely.
imagine seeing the best surgeon for ten years. you must have picked up some traits, techniques, some tips over that time. >>steve: you almost got injured a couple of times on "survivor." the first time you were on our house scantily clad eating skin and snakes. >>elisabeth: there were tougher moments in the past ten years. this is going to be a treat being here. >>brian: but also a lot of people -- now they know by looking at your last name, but tim hasselbeck, you met him in college. nfl quarterback, a star on espn. >>elisabeth: he won me over with chips and salsa, speaking my love language. >>brian: what year was that? >>elisabeth: probably 1998, 1997. this is college, probably sophomore year or junior
year in college. i know. that's when i was dying my hair brown. >>steve: when you were in college, among other things, you also were a very famous softball player at boston college. >>elisabeth: yes. i was the second or the worst person -- the worst person on my team, i think. i'm not sure how they kept me but i'm glad they did. that was a fine group of women and i learned a lot i take with me every day. >>brian: you're very competitive, a greateth hraoet and an -- great athlete and an a for everything you do. >>elisabeth: let's talk about me. >>brian: let's go with your first talking point. elisabeth hasselbeck is officially on "fox & friends." let's talk about a report put out by the house about benghazi. they are pushing back the advisory review board. >>elisabeth: they certainly are. the report from december
2012 coming under question by a house committee. they are questioning was it verifiable. were there worthwhile interviews that went down? were we left unprotected by an area? what was that authorized and by whom -- >>brian: that shows how little progress has been made. >>elisabeth: we know nothing. >>steve: keep in mind this particular report was leaked to the press by the republican side of the committee. what it shows is that essentially this a.r.b. review that was done by the state department protected the people at the state department, the higher up, in particular hillary clinton. extraordinarily if she's running the state department and, you know, this terrible benghazi tragedy happens, why would they never interview her? they never did. when they did interview people, they never recorded it. it was just sloppy the way they did it. >>brian: here's an
example. one thing i hate in life is when you blame other people. you have charlene lamb, eric bosswell and raymond maxwell. they were blamed for what went wrong in benghazi when four americans lost their lives and dozens more were wounded and the president went out and campaigned the next morning. there's reports that he went to where the ambassador was. all of them are back on the job and people are saying just over a year later, what do we know and why don't we know it. this week we're going to have hearing again. benghazi back in the limelight. >>elisabeth: thursday we may know more. >>steve: this is almost amusing were it not for the fact that four americans lost their lives. there is a terrible conflict of interest. there is this fellow, under secretary, patrick kennedy, he works for the state department. he was in charge of staffing up the a.r.b. kind of a conflict of interest. i'm going to hire the
people to investigate me and my bosses. as it turns out, it didn't blame the bosses for anything. >>elisabeth: in the meantime four lives are lost including our ambassador chris stevens. we will hope to find out more but i'm not confident yet that we will. >>brian: here's what the state department says, attacking the a.r.b. is an attack on the integrity of one of america's most respected diplomats, one of the nation's most respected leaders, both of whom spent their lives serving presidents of both parties. there is going to be a bit push back along partisan lines. >>elisabeth: for the rest of the headlines we're going to heather nauert. >> good morning, elisabeth. great to have you here. we've got headlines to bring you now. we are looking at new video coming in to "fox & friends" from italy. at this hour salvage crews are attempting to pull up the 114,000-ton costa concordia cruise ship.
it is a massive undertaking. a ship this large and heavy has never been raised before. workers were waiting for better weather conditions to take place, and they fear if the ship isn't moved before the winter months it could deteriorate and further break apart releasing toxic substances into the sea. 32 people died when that ship crashed into the rocks off the coast of tuscany in 2012. a former college football player is dead and the police officer who shot him now faces manslaughter charges. officers say jonathan ferrell, a former safety for florida a&m university survived a car crash in north carolina and went looking for help in the middle of the night. a woman who was frightened heard him pounding on her door and called 911. when one of them showed up, he opened fire. we'll keep you posted on what happened. now to a fox news alert. a major air rescue expected to happen today in colorado
as officials hope for clearer skies to continue that rescue effort. so far more than 1,700 people and animals have been rescued from that devastating flooding and take a look at this. this guy riding his horse to safety after it was trapped in his barn completely surrounded by water. so far five people died in that flooding and that number, sadly, expected to rise. finally, a new miss america crowned last night in the same place where it all began. atlantic city, new jersey. >> your new miss america is ... miss new york. >> there she is. what a beautiful lady, becoming the second consecutive contestant from new york to win that pageant. the 24-year-old is also the first miss america of indian descent. she beat out miss california for that crown. she made headlines earlier
this week for calling her predecessor molly hagan fat. but she wasn't always so trim herself. her trainer reveals she lost 53 pounds in the past two years. >>steve: that's not the only controversy from the miss america beauty pageant. for instance, keep in mind, you know the part where they ask the contestants questions. abc said that the questions would be equally difficult. all right? so if one question is asked of one contestant, the next question will be just absolutely as equally hard. >>brian: miss california against miss new york, miss new york to be the eventual winner. you make the call at home. jot it down. >>steve: watch this. >> the u.s. has threatened to attack syria over using chemical weapons on its own people. it's a terrible crime, but is it our responsibility to punish them for it?
>> miley cyrus caused a media sensation with her twerky expression. what do you think? miley expressed herself or what do you think? >>steve: syria bombing. miley twerking. >>elisabeth: in our home, twerking is a weapon of mass destruction. i see nothing wrong with the variety. >>brian: one comment on society, one on international affairs. coming up straight ahead? >>elisabeth: his wife was in labor but this quarterback still hit the football field. joe flacco under fire. does he deserve it? >>brian: want to know why the government is spying on your spending? a congressman w-g -- a congressman and his wife are up live next.

>> what i think america deserves is the transparency you promised. >>steve: joining us is congressman sean duffy along with his wife. >>elisabeth: we're so glad that you're here and, by the way, so glad you got tough because this is an atrocity to think what i purchase on my credit card is available. they want more. they want to push that to almost 100%. are they in violation of federal law? >> this is the law. they can grab this information. they're taking 80%, which is almost a billion credit cards for americans. our concern is they're holding this information for up to ten years. the question is why? why do you want all of this information on americans? red flags are going off all over the place. we continue to ask this agency questions about why they're doing this, how many credit card are taken and they continue to stonewall us and give us no answers like you saw in that clip. america has a right tpho know.
we're concerned -- a right to know. if you want to know how someone lives their life, find oupt -- out how they spend their money. >>steve: i can understand if you were tracking down the visa bill of someone in al qaeda. >> our grandparents? come on. i think we should look at how th implementing this program. the only way it will stop is if congress steps in. one of the big concerns is they're going to the big and small banks saying we want you to give us all this information but you can't tell the consumer. >>elisabeth: the banks know they're going to help them in, they have to play nice. what do we do as consumers because we're so credit card friendly? you have to feel the same way, rachel. >> i do. i'm lucky i have my husband to pass a bill here to tell us about it. >> i have ao bill coming
out that will say the consumer financial protection bill, the agency that is supposed to protect us from big banks, they should ask us permission before they collect and monitor our financial transactions. hopefully mr. cordray will support us in that effort. >>steve: don't hold your breath. tell us about the leave it initiative. >> we're about spwourg hispanics to help them achieve the american dream. we're in danger of an entitlement society of robbing people of the reason they came to this country which is to work and to prosper. that's what we do. >>steve: do you have a web site? >> www. www.thelibreinitiative.com. >> are we the first once on the curvy couch? >>elisabeth: that's an honor.

>>steve: 24 minutes on this monday morning and quick headlines. a top female cop in afghanistan shot dead months after her predecessor was assassinated. an officer was outside her home when two gunmen drove up on a motor bike and shot her in the neck. a tattoo parlor suspected of accepting food stamps for ink. cops in raleigh, north carolina, say the owner took e.b.t. card as payment
for tattoos. great. brian? >>brian: a big blow to the president. his topic for the federal reserve chairman now withdrawing. former white house economic advisor larry summers known for this picture -- asleep on the job -- sent this letter to the president. this is a complex moment in our national life. i have reluctantly concluded any possible confirmation process for me would be acrimonious and would not serve the interest of the federal reserve, the administration or ultimately the interest of the nation's ongoing economic recovery. why was this pick so controversial? why did he bail out? let's ask one of the best in the business, fox news correspondent, charles gasparino. he reluctantly stepped out. he didn't try to mask it by saying i'm too busy or have other interests. >> he's been an economic bureaucrat for a long time. he always wanted this job. he was too -- this close to getting it. it wasn't the republicans that tanked it. it was the left.
larry summers worked on wall street, worked for a hedge fund. he did work on wall street, made money, the left didn't like it. he was treasury secretary under clinton. that is when there was some deregulation. >>brian: they always blame bush for that. >> that is a myth. there was more deregulation under bill clinton than george bush. that led to the financial crisis. something known as glass-steagall dismantled. you could merge a risk taking investment bank with a commercial bank that insured deposits. that was done under bill clinton. >>brian: i interviewed sandy whaoeuld and he has the pen signed for it. tim geithner says i'm not going near washington. janet yellin or donald cohen.
yellin no market experience. >> neither has market experience but they are less controversial. the markets are going up. summers is perceived as someone that will paper faster. i don't necessarily believe that's the case. the markets believe it. you watch, the stock market is going to go up. >>brian: markets are scared we're not going to continue to print free money. five years since lehman collapsed. the president is going to be speaking about what a great job he's done to get the economy back on its fees. have we learned from lehman? are we now no longer too big to fail. >> as a matter of fact, there are bigger banks. one of the interesting things about larry summers, in the treasury department when they got rid of glass-steagall which allowed huge banks to merge, there is more risk in fewer banks now. more systemic risk. in one of those banks go
under, we will bail them out. >>brian: here are the six you say are biggest. j.p. morgan chase, wells fargo, bank of america, morgan stanley, goldman sachs. if any of these banks go under, we would still bail them out? >> i wouldn't say citigroup is back on its feet. it is better than it was but none of these banks are making a lot of loans because they still have issues on their balance sheets. if we still have a bad economy, if we go into a recession, if interest rates go up, all those banks are going to be losing money. >>brian: great to see you. soon we'll get you on the couch. until then, you're the first in the interview area. two minutes before the bottom of the hour. next on our rundown, the trial for the september 11 mastermind could be delayed even more. and the reason? computer problems. and take a look at this dramatic picture.

>> i think elisabeth is going to be a big plus for fox. she is a great gal, very smart and very funny too. and if you give her a chance around here, unlike what i get when i come on here, everybody wants to be a comedian and try to be funnier than regis -- and they are. that's what drives me crazy, elisabeth. but you stayed loose. don't get too close to them. >>brian: i love his show on fox sports 1. regis does a great job over there. >>elisabeth: he is the king. i love him. thanks. i love you. >>brian: 27 minutes before the top of the hour. elisabeth's first day but we have a lot of news to cover. you've seen the new set but what you haven't seen is how we tore the old set down. >>elisabeth: we've got that part covered. >>brian: here is a cool time-lapsed look at how it all came together.
>>steve: today this hour the final hour for this is historic piece of furniture. we're sitting on the most famous couch in america. we're retiring it today. >>brian: i'm back from vacation and i'm back here to find a brand-new studio which will be temporary until we go back to the other studio. >>steve: what happened? >>brian: we don't have anything to touch. a little messy. >>brian: you've been there. >>elisabeth: i think i made you guys lunch here. >>brian: pulled pork is delicious. >>steve: one of the things we would do without fail once a day is somebody would spill their coffee on the curvy couch and then
after five years who knew that it would actually wind up on the studio. >>brian: that means it went through the rug, through the plywood, through the stage -- >>steve: and into the subway. i guess it's official. if you camera guys want to turn out the lights, the next thing you see, folks, will be the new set. there goes one and there goes the other. ladies and gentlemen, our new set. >>brian: finished, laminated, plexiglassed and then it will get sent over to fox. it is always exciting to see something start out from basically a piece of paper that we get a drawing for the actual pieces and then kind of sit in our living room and put it on tv and watch it. it's a lot of fun. ♪ ♪ >> behind me is what was basically called the anchor area, kind of the main wall

>>elisabeth: and the most fantastic crew, i have to say. i have to say hats off to all of you. >>brian: they already like you better than me and steve. >>steve: you just sealed the deal. >>elisabeth: that's why i'm here. >>steve: they do beautiful work. the same company did -- >>elisabeth: lady gaga. >>steve: they did her. >>brian: the fact is they built my own separate green room and i get my own -- [buzzer sounds] >>steve: we've got a truth inspector. every time you tell a fib, you buzzer. >>brian: for example, i'm treated special here. [buzzer sounds] >>elisabeth: we've got a lot of news breaking overnight so we'll go to heather nauert. >> good morning. brand-new video coming in from italy. salvage crews are attempting to pull up the
114-,000 ton costa concordia on its side. this is a massive undertaking. a ship this large and heavy has never been raised before. it is expected to take between 10 and 12 hours. the pressure is on because if the ship isn't moved before the winter it could break apart and release toxic substances into the sea. 32 people died when the ship crashed into the rock. hearings resume today at gitmo for the alleged 9/11 mastermind khalid sheikh mohammed and four other al qaeda conspirators. proceedings ended last month after computer problems hampered the work of attorneys in that high-profile case. a judge is expected to decide this week if the pretrial hearing should be put on hold until next year so technicians can fix that computer issue. they were mere hours away from death. two fishermen stranded at sea for eight days when their boat capsized. the men clung to the boat's hull and drifted in the atlantic ocean until a
freighter spotted them off the coast of florida. here is what it looked like from the coast guard choppers that were above. experts say these men were just hours away from certain death. and those are your headlines. elisabeth? >>steve: thank you very much, heather. >>elisabeth: fox news alert. officials in colorado planning a massive air rescue today. they say at least 1,000 people are waiting to be saved from the flood waters. >>brian: we're live in boulder, colorado, with the latest. >> you know what? it's going to be a difficult mission today because the rain is continuing to come down hard and hard rain over the weekend prevented a lot of helicopters getting into the air to rescue those 1,000 people. we've also got fog in the area particularly here in the boulder area. that is going to complicate things further. take a quick look at boulder creek behind me. that is back in flood now. it has probably risen about two feet i think probably in the past 24 hours or so. it is difficult weather we're having here. the national guard managed
to get out one chinook and one blackhawk yesterday and he was using that to rescue its own servicemen and first responders that got forced out. we've got 1,000 people waiting to be rescued. about 11,-p 00 -- 11,700 people under evacuation. they say today is going to get worse. >>steve: thank you very much for the live report. two huge storms pounding mexico at the same time this morning on opposite coasts this morning as many as 21 people dead. tropical storm manual. maria molina the first day on the new set and you've got a big storm on both sides of mexico. >> that's right. the good news is manuel dissipated so it is no longer a tropical storm or tropical depression but it is forecast to produce a lot of heavy rain across
parts of mexico and that along with hurricane ingrid will produce rainfall, as much as 25 inches of rain. we can be losing lives up here. just very life-threatening across sections of mexico. some of that rain from hurricane ingrid will fall across parts of texas. hurricane ingrid a category one storm, maximum sustained winds at 75 miles per hour. >>steve: mr. kilmeade is doing sports now. >>brian: how did you know that? you looked at my empty chair and thought i would be somewhere. i know most of you watched this game but the manning bowl 3 in new york, eli hosting payton and the broncos. giants still in at this point. 24-16. lie did not have a great -- eli did not have a great
day. off an ankle into the arms of a bronco. you got the sense even though the giants were home it would not be their day. in the end a blowout 41-23. this was all payton. it's hard for me to imagine a team beating the broncos in the a.f.c. i have a sense they could be back here for the super bowl. meanwhile your team is about to play the cleveland browns but your wife is in labor. what do you do? what do you do? if you're joe flacco, honey, i've got to work. his decision? go play for the ravens. they're paying us a million dollars. joe flacco's wife played birth and he played tackle football. joe flacco's team, the ravens were happy to have him. i don't know what they would have done there this as they went on to win the game. the birth of the boy happened. and baltimore beat the browns 14-6. not much offense but her water broke, somebody else was there to clean up. >>elisabeth: i remember those days.
someone grab a mop, name the child and back to practice of the game you go. >>brian: i have a scenario for you. if tim was playing for the giants and you were giving the birth, what do you do? would you tell him go to the game? >>elisabeth: i say go to the game. we were in arizona and i said go back to practice. here's your baby, go back to practice. >>brian: like adrian when she looked at rocky coming out of a coma and she said win. >>steve: donald trump will be with us in 17 minutes. >>brian: the fed and many state governments are working hard to take away your guns so why are some federal agencies stocking up on arms for themselves? you'll be shocked. >>elisabeth: we all know batman needs a sidekick, so how about justin bieber. we've got the picture that everyone will be talking about today. >>steve: he was at the fight. ♪ ♪

from, among other places, the e.p.a., the u.s. fish and wildlife service, bureau of land management, the coast guard, noaa and the park service. did you know that the park service and the e.p.a. and noaa had swat teams? >>elisabeth: no. fully armed and ready to go. there are a bunch of agencies. we have fish and wildlife, we have management. >>brian: library of congress. >>elisabeth: oceanic and atmospheric. they're all armed and ready to go. >>brian: while the federal government is saying we're going to fight against guns and people are having trouble getting ammo across the country, meanwhile our federal agencies are bulking up with overwhelming fire power. >>steve: it wasn't too long ago we had the guy who runs gibson guitar on our program talking about how the swat team showed up at his place, and that swat team was from the fish and
wildlife service. here's henry. >> the issue really was pretty esoteric. it had to do about compliance with laws not in the united states but in those countries, and it had to do about the amount of labor content in the wood and nothing to do with con sraeugs or that wood -- conservation or that wood being endangered. in the second raid, the wood that was seized was from india, and we got that wood back, and we continue to buy that wood legally as we had for many years. >>steve: it seems like a little overkill to have a swat -- you know, they're going to seize some wood. they have a swat team. >>brian: i want to know what you think. hash tag better with friend and at fox and friend at hasselbeck and kilmeade. >>elisabeth: our next

world. >>elisabeth: speaking of the outside world, you did escape. you escaped, went out to the outside world but then decided to go back and help which was incredible. you testified 20 times against the leaders and actually showed up to testify in a red dress. talk about the significance. what message were you sending then? what message are you sending now? >> i wore red because we were not allowed to wear red growing up. he told me i will break you. when i saw him in the courtroom, i wanted to send him a message that i was not broken. at the time, the first time it was out of defiance. i wanted to remind him. but now over time it has become a symbol of freedom. i choose today. that is what r me. >>elisabeth: you are one incredible woman. i want to let everybody know of your full resillans. you have an organization called claimredorg for

advice for you. >> elisabeth: they have good advice. we have more headlines. so we're going to go to heather nauert. >> good morning. we've been following all the breaking news for you. let's take a live look at italy right now. just moments ago, salvage crews successfully detaching the costa concordia ship from the reef below. they're in the process of pulling the 114,000-ton ship off of its side and they're a few hours into the operation. it's expected to take between ten and 12 hours all together. this is a massive undertaking. a ship this large and heavy has never been raised before. if the ship isn't moved before winter, it could break apart, leasing toxic substances into the sea. 32 people died when that ship crashed into the rocks. the bodies of two victims have still not been recovered. we go now to a fox news alert. a major air rescue in the state of colorado today. so far more than 1700 stranded people and also animals have
been saved from those devastating floods. take a look at this guy right here. riding a horse to safety after it was trapped in a barn. unbelievable. completely surrounded by water, his owner had to get him out. so far five people have died and the number is expected to rise. more than 1,000 people are unaccounted for today. a former college football player dead this morning, shot by mistake because police officers thought he was a criminal. officers say that jonathan ferrell, who played safety at florida a & m survived a car crash in north carolina and then went looking for help in the middle of the night. he approached a woman's home looking for help, but she became finded and called 911. when police arrived, he ran toward officers begging for help, one quickly opened fire, shooting him dead. investigators say the shooting seems to be excessive and that officer will face manslaughter charges.
we'll keep you posted on that. new miss america crowned last night. >> your new miss america is miss new york! >> miss new york. becoming the second consecutive contestant from that state to win the pageant. the 24-year-old is also the first miss america of indian descent. but the headlines stealing from the show, there is a real controversy about the questions that were asked. the pageant said the questions would be equally difficult. but one was about miley cyrus and twerking and the other about syria. huh. quite a difference there. those are your headlines. back to steve, elizabeth and brian. >> steve: you hear it? who is at the door? it's donald trump. >> brian: donald trump in person
every monday is a donald trump monday. now in person for one reason. he hasn't seen steve and i in a long time. >> a long time. >> brian: nice to see you. >> steve: i'm feeling kind of bad because brian and i are here action but you coordinated tie and dress. >> i did. >> elisabeth: almost like a prommish. >> she certain israeli finance fantastic -- certainly is fantastic. >> steve: what do you think about the story about how all the questions of the miss america pageant were supposed to be equally difficult. one girl gets a question about
syria and the other about miley cyrus. >> they were very different burks i focus on the miss universe contest, which is much bigger, better, and will be in moscow. >> brian: you're going to moscow? >> november 9. i'm going, do you want to come? >> elisabeth: have you going to have any other meetings while you're there? >> i don't know. that will be interesting. i know he'd like to go. >> brian: let's go to our second
talking point. putin will head to iran. he feels so successful, he's on a high after negotiating a deal with syria, he's going to go work on the iran nuclear program. what have we done to him? >> he's doing very well. we made him the world leader, our leaders have really -- they've given the mantle. he is now the world leader. he's done very, very well. i think the people of russia probably are somewhat -- at least some, are pretty proud of him. he has done an amazing job of showing how to lead. >> brian: it doesn't mean he's a great person. >> what he's done is amazing and assad now
is 100%, there is -- forget it. that's over. it's a rough situation. >> elisabeth: we had congressman duffy on earlier and he was quoted earlier in the week as saying that president obama should hand putin his nobel peace prize. do you think that is something that should happen? >> i don't know about that. i can only say putin has done an amazing job of showing leadership, whether it's good leadership, bad leadership or what and whether it's a noble cause or not. let's not discuss that.
but certainly he did give our president a life line, but that life line was brilliant because it gave him position of top and assad now has got no problem with the rebels. the rebels -- forget it. i was never a big rebel fan to start off with. i'm trying to figure out who are the rebels. so i don't care about that. but assad now is solidly in control. >> steve: and because it is such a mess over there. george stephanopoulos had a sit down with the president of the united states and essentially called the president on it. here is george and the president. >> folks here in washington like to grade on style. had we rolled out something that was very smooth and disciplineed and linear, they would have graded it well even if it was a disastrous policy. we know that 'cause that's
exactly how they graded the iraq war until -- >> this doesn't change your view of president bush? >> i'm less concerned about style points. i'm much more concerned about getting the policy right. >> the policy is worse than the style. what could be worse than our policy? we're being scoffed at and laughed at. our country is going to hell. what could be worse than what's happening to this country? our country. >> brian: you run a huge corporation. very successfully. if you had a vice president making policy and then you had to come out and walk him back and then you told him to go make policy, then changed it on him, is that a smooth running company, 'cause that is what we witnessed with the 39. i call -- >> you had other points you wanted to talk about, whether it social security or so many different things. we could go after agency after agency, our country is being run very, very poorly. before we go to syria where they
hate us and we're going to spend trillions of dollars -- in iraq, $1.5 trillion, thousands of lives, you and i discussed this, thousands of lives what, do we have? nothing. now iran is using their air space because it's a little shorter to fly over. it's a horrible thing what's happening to our country. >> elisabeth: you mentioned the economy. latest news shows larry summers withdrawing his name as chair of the federal reserve. withwhat are your thoughts on t? >> he's a controversial guy, smart guy. i don't know him well, but he's certainly somebody that probably you're going to end up with janet yell and she's going to keep interest rates low. >> brian: keep printing money. >> that's true. she'll be printing money. but i always -- i have to say selfishly, as long as i'm in my role as developer, i love cheap money. you have to go with where you are. i'm a developer. they did a nice story about me today in the "wall street journal." >> brian: i heard about that. >> but i am a developer, so i
love low interest rates. but as to whether or not it's good for the economy, time will tell. >> brian: let's talk about five years -- >> steve: by the way, you said you were in the paper? >> wow. i like that better. i'll swap. >> steve: here we are in the "new york times." >> elisabeth: threw trying to trump trump. >> brian: as you see, i'm alice in the shot. [ laughter ] >> elisabeth: you are! >> what's going on with you? >> brian: i don't know. >> brian: lee man brothers -- leeman brothers? >> it could happen again. >> brian: we fixed it. >> it's not fixed. it's very artificial. i've done this monday morning 7:00 o'clock, the highest rated 15 minutes of the week. they said would you come? i said no. they said, but elizabeth is here. i said okay. i had to be here.
>> brian: when you first got won over by allegation. >> rosy attacked her and what she did to rosy was unbelievable. in fact, she never showed up again. that's the real elizabeth. very tough and nice. stay friendly with her. [ laughter ] >> elisabeth: there is your warning. >> steve: i saw her on "survivor". >> brian: as long as she's here every monday, you'll be here? >> i might do that. >> elisabeth: as long as we coordinate our tie and dress. coming up, major insurers pulling out of some states and you can thank obamacare for that. what does it all mean for your health care? that's up next. >> brian: it's edge aetna. and remember when al gore made his case for global warming? now the science is in and it will have al gore feeling hot under the collar while he's on his private jet ♪ ho ho ho
>> if you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor. if you like your private health insurance plan, you can keep your plan. period. >> elisabeth: president obama made that promise back in 2009 and since then, obamacare has seen a lot of changes. now your insurer may be one of the many to dump individual health coverage in your state. what does it mean for you, your family and your wallet? here to break it all down for us is fox business report kate rogers. thanks for being here today.
as of right now, it's 16 states and dc are in the process of creating these exchanges, right, before the 2014 deadline? >> yes. >> elisabeth: what does that mean for americans? >> we've long known it would propel more people into our u.s. health care coverage. what we've seen starting may, insurers dropping out of the individual market and that means that costs could really go up for consumers if demand is going up and supply is going down. both of those things can spike prices. >> elisabeth: right. also less competition to reserve the consumer -- really serve the consumer well. some of the companies that have left, aetna, significant in a, united health, assured health, united health, blue shield, across these states. businesses are also bracing for this. correct? >> they absolutely are. we actually saw the employer mandate which says every business with at least 50 or more full time employees has to offer their workers health care insurance. we saw that pushback to 2015.
come january 1, 2014, every individual in the company is mandate to do have health care insurance. if you choose not to have that coverage, you face a penalty of $95 a year. >> elisabeth: just before we go, what should the average american do now? what if we say today, this is the question you should be asking your company and what you should be looking at for your insurance coverage? >> exactly. if you're in one of these states where your insurer dropped out of the individual market, you can't keep your plan. you have to contact them. you may be picked up by another insurer. but everyone should be going to these exchanges beginning october 1 and shopping around if you're not currently covered. if you may be facing that $95 penalty, go to the exchange, shop around and see what plan works best for you and your family. you may be able for a subsidy. >> elisabeth: great. we'll have more information on-line. thank you for being here today. you simplify it for us really well. thank you. coming up, our nation's heros battling a back log at the v.a. for their benefits.

a revolving door in the media from the left, although it does occasionally happen on the right. we've got, for instance, so far with this administration, 15 is the number since 2009. bush administration w's had three and clinton had a single one. >> right. it's very, very common it seems like. you've had linda douglas left abc to go to the white house to manage pr for obamacare, jay carney left time magazine as its bureau chief to go into the vice president's office and then to the white house. shy la murray left the "washington post" to go to the vice president after jay carney left. it seems like this is a recurring pattern. what's so crazy is a lot of them can move back into the media as supposedly objective reporters again. look at george stephanopoulos from the clinton white house to abc. >> steve: i know you think since president obama is the most liberal president we've ever had, this is journalists' way of going into the administration and just helping him out!

extinguish their torches or something. >> elisabeth: when we go through the obstacle course, they're toast. >> brian: first, bret, fox news alert. you and commission chairman says it's investigating 14 alleged cases of chemical attacks in syria. we heard that 12 to 14, they were smaller. so that is all along with the news over the weekend that the president has a deal, it looks like, signed and implemented by the secretary of state. what do you think about where we're at right now with syria? >> it's a big if. if you talk to anybody up here on capitol hill and any expert, foreign policy wise, the big if is if russia and syria can come to the table with what's on that paper. and really deliver. if it happens, the administration could have a bit of a victory here. but there is a lot of skepticism about the deal overall and russia really coming together with assad running the show. that's one thing that is definitely clear. assad will stay in power.
>> steve: yesterday on another morning chat show over on abc, the president was asked by george stephanopoulos about, you know, the syria thing, it didn't go very smoothly and he was talking about, well, stylicly maybe not so much, but ultimately with the policy, whatever that is. if folks missed it, here is george and the president. >> folks here in washington like to grade on style and so had we rolled out something that was very smooth and disciplined and linear, they would have graded it well even if it was a disastrous policy. we know that 'cause that's exactly how they graded the iraq war. i'm less concerned about style points. i'm much more concerned about getting the policy right. >> elisabeth: are you buying this style line? >> i tell you, if all comes
together, he's right. the history books won't look back at this zigzag foreign policy approach if it works. that's a big if, as i said. but secondly, how this all was rolled out, i mean, on the same day that the administration accepted the russia proposal essentially, the president talking about it, you had this administration passing a paperwork on capitol hill saying why russia should not be trusted in this whole deal. and style points, as the president puts them, matter around the world. you have north korea restarting reactor in the wake of all of this. you have iran emboldened in the wake of all of this. and you even have liberal democrats up on capitol hill perhaps standing up to this president, this administration more and that's perhaps what happened to larry summers, why he pulled his name from consideration for federal reserve chair. >> steve: you know what? if it does work out, it all started with a gaffe heard around the world just a week ago today with john kerry going off message, but it might actually
work out. >> never know. we said at the beginning, i was here when that happened -- is it's tough to believe that this was all orchestrated this way because there were a lot of moving parts going different directions. >> brian: i can't wait to see what you get to lead with and see what changes today because it's a rapidly changing story. special reports starts at 6:00 o'clock. be on time. >> okay. welcome. >> elisabeth: thank you. it's good to see you today. we also have a lot of news happening overnight. for that, we're going to go right over to heather nauert. >> good morning. a major air rescue is taking place in colorado today. so far more than 1700 people have been saved from the devastating floods there. take a look at this guy right here. he is riding his horse to safety. that horse was trapped in its barn and it was completely surrounded by water. so this is how he had to get the horse out. so far five people have died in that state. the number is expected to rise. more than 1,000 people are still
unaccounted for at this hour. a former college football player is dead this morning, shot by mistake because a police officer apparently thought he was a criminal. officers say jonathan ferrell, who played football at florida a & m, survived a car crash in north carolina, and he went looking for help in the middle of the night after banging on a woman's door. she then called 911. when cops arrived, ferrell ran in the direction of officers and he begged them for help. one much them quickly opened fire. the officer will now apparently face manslaughter charges. we'll keep you posted on that as it develops. a live look at italy this morning and that is where salvage crews successfully detached the costa concordia ship from a reef. they're in the process of pulling up that 114,000-ton ship from its side. there are a few hours into that operation right now. it's expected to take a total of 12 hours. a ship -- what's so interesting, a ship this size has never been

different reason. >> i appreciate it now because it's been seven years. it stung bad. imagine the worst thing you think about yourself and then imagine them on national television. >> steve: where everybody could see. >> yeah. >> steve: you are an overcomer and you owe a lot of it to zumba. >> yeah! >> steve: come on over here. >> brian: you lost 100 pounds on zumba? >> zumba and a lot of other things. finding a form exercise that i love changed my life. wait a minute. are we about to do it right now? i have to take my shoes off! >> steve: should brian and i take our heels off, too? >> i think you're okay. >> brian: let's hear the music and let's see you two zumba. >> no, no, no! >> elisabeth: bring it. >> no, no! i'm going to teach you three moves. one is a punching move. do a punch and squat. you squat and punch to your side

now. >> elisabeth: are you feeling okay about it? >> no. >> steve: we're going to talk about the news of the day in just a minute. >> elisabeth: we're going to go to heather nauert for the headlines. >> sean, if you leave the house at 2:00 a.m., it will take you just a couple of minutes. [ laughter ] >> brian: that and back roads. >> right. got some headlines. hearings resume at gitmo for the alleged 9-11 master mind, khalid sheikh mohammed and four other conspirators. proceedings ended last month after computer problems hampered the work of the attorneys. a judge is expected to decide this week if the pretrial hearings should be put on hold until next year so the i.t. department can fix the issue. a tattoo parlor is accused of accepting food stamps as payment for ink. police in rowling, north carolina say the owner of clifford title, that's the guy's name who owned the shop, took cards as payments for tattoos. customers filled their cards in exchange for hundreds of dollars
worth of art. how about that? and they were a mere hours away from death. two fishermen stranded at sea for eight days when their boat capsized. the men clung to the boat's hull as they drifted in the atlantic ocean until a freighter spotted them off the coast of florida. here is what it looks like from the coast guard chopper that was above them. experts say they were about -- these guys were very close to death. fortunately they were rescued. baltimore ravens quarterback joe flaco is taking real heat for a call made off the field. his wife was in labor before sunday's game against the cleveland browns and just moments before kickoff, the team tweeted this: joe flacco's wife gave birth to the couple's second child 30 minutes ago. he will play today. he has two things to celebrate, birth of his son and the victory. the ravens beat the browns in their home opener. a second child always get short
stiffed. >> steve: wait 'til the third. >> brian: let's go to sean hannity live now. >> steve: in a minute. >> brian: in a minute? 'cause i want to get his reaction on flacco. >> i have a story on my first son born, that my wife still tells with a little bit of passion in her voice. i'll give you a hint, a tease. >> steve: tell the story. >> he was born on location day? 1998. i was living in the city at the time, which i hated. and so on election day, we knew the baby was coming that day, without giving a lot of details. so i get up in the morning, we get in the cab. i said, let me go vote first, so this way i won't have to worry about it later. >> elisabeth: like a great american. >> that's right. so we get in the car, it's bumpy ride. my wife is complaining. we literally -- i finally say, okay, we'll go to the hospital. we get in the hospital, water breaks, baby was out in 22 minutes. >> steve: whoa! so you can be on tv! >> it all worked out okay.
we almost didn't get there 'cause i would have had to cross over town to get there. >> steve: more with sean in just a moment. first, other stuff for you. two huge storms pounding mexico at the same time on opposite coasts. maria molina has been tracking that. she joins us from new york city where it is currently raining on the streets of the big town. >> that's right. it is currently raining. in true fashion, i'm outside bearing the elements. look at mexico, you can see some of the video of extreme flooding there. we did have landfall already occur from ingrid and that was a hurricane. but now it has weakened to a tropical storm. maximum sustained winds at 65 miles per hour. the biggest concern with ingrid isn't whether it's a tropical storm or hurricane, it's really the amount of rainfall we are expecting. we're talking about locally up to 25 inches of rain possible from the storm system over the next several days across sections of northeastern mexico. so flash flooding will be a concern. we're also look at issues in terms of mud slides out there because we do have several mountain ranges. you can see the computer model
forecast is for, again, locally up to 25 inches of rain. but overall, more than six inches expected for so many areas out there in parts of the country of mexico. otherwise across the united states, we have rain here in the northeast and it is going to be moving through very quickly today. this is all associated with the cold front that's going to be bringing in much cooler temperatures. steve, elisabeth, brian, we're talking about -- oh, my gosh. what is this? >> steve: this is stars from a new show on fox "the headless horseman." [ laughter ] >> you're missing something. you forgot to put your head on this morning. it creeps me out when people have outfits on and i can't see their faces. >> brian: very cool reaction. i would not have reacted that way. >> steve: even though it's raining outside, we're coming outside for a physical challenge in about ten minutes. >> brian: come back in. sean hannity, let's talk news.
have elisabeth ask you the first question. >> we've been friends a long time. >> elisabeth: yes, we have. >> it's a real honor to have you here. i turn on the tv this morning and i saw you and it was great to see you. >> elisabeth: kids say hi, by the way. that's a big honor. let's talk benghazi. let's get down to business. you were talking syria yesterday and talking syria, libya today. so honestly, of all the things going on, now we're finding out that information was not handled properly, interviews weren't conducted the way they should have been. even admiral mullen is now coming under question for running aboard. what are we looking at now and are we leaving ambassadors clearly without the protection they need? >> the sad thing -- we made snakes before, during and -- mistake before, during and afterment we didn't give them the security they requested. during, we had troops, we had people ready to go and help bail them out and they were told to stand down. >> elisabeth: exactly. >> after we were just lied to. the talking points became a big
lie. all this seems to be coming out bit by bit, but it's a year later. part of a strategy of the administration is they want to cover these things up. they want to delay, delay, delay, 'cause by the time the real news comes out, we're saying, oh, that's old news. same thing about the irs. it wasn't two rogue agents in cincinnati. this was orchestrated from washington. we had a smoking gun e-mail last friday and we know, in fact, that lois lerner herself went after these people and got caught. that's why she pled the fifth. >> brian: it doesn't make news. benghazi does not make news. there are going to be hearings on thursday. four underlings were let go and put back in their position! that's what this whole thing is about. when the review board comes back and said, we did a great job. this is part of some politics. >> listen, four people lost their lives. ty woods' dad was on our show a couple of times and you know what? he deserves an answer. we deserve an answer.
more importantly, we're going to learn so nobody else gets killed in the future. >> elisabeth: we had an answer from hillary clinton. >> brian was asking me if it's a slam dunk she gets nominated. she's a front runner. is it going to be a coronation? probably. if she wants the nomination, she's likely to get it. i saw a guy named joe biden in iowa this weekend -- >> elisabeth: not that we have anything else going on in the world, he's campaigning. >> steve: here he is in iowa. he says, this is -- referring to ted cruz and the republican party. this is now a party where the tail is wagging the dog, where ted cruz is running the show. a freshman in terms of idea of the party. joe is in. >> well, he's in. ted cruz is a -- i tell you why he's threatening to the left. he went to harvard. he's an intellectual. he's an attorney general. he knows the law. >> brian: fearless. >> fearless. that's a word that republicans need to embrace a little more.
>> steve: you know what? there are a lot of people on the right who are mystified by ted cruz. why is he pushing so hard? >> i want them to push hard. reagan in the mid '70s raised a rhetorical question. he said, is it a third party we need or a revitalized second party with bold colored differences? i'm a tea party reagan conservative. i would like to see them defund obamacare and stand united, fund the rest of the government, and if it gets shut down that, will be up to obama and the democrat attention. they don't want to pay the bills, our debt and obligation, that's fine. >> brian: who do you have on tonight? >> elisabeth. >> brian: are you going on tonight? >> yeah. >> elisabeth: am i? >> my daughter makes them. she spends hours making those things. >> elisabeth: thanks for bringing me back. this is my first morning without the kids.
