3:00 am
thank ni it was quickly caught. good news in the end. >> i don't blame them. thanks for joining us. "fox & friends" starts now. see you here tomorrow. same time. >> bye. good morning. today is monday, the 8th of september, 2014. i'm anna kooiman. this is what a two game nfl suspension looks back. the horrifying moment ravens running back ray rice punched his fiancee. a first look at what went down in that elevator. >> not good. meanwhile the president admitting he's not exactly sorry for playing golf while the family of james foley broke down in tears, but he does regret one thing. >> i should have anticipated the optics. part of the job is also the theater of it. >> that's not all he said.
3:01 am
>> a major announcement from the duke and duchess of cambridge to the town crier. [bell ringing] >> hear ye, hear ye! this is the town crier! you are watching "fox & friends." >> he stole your lines. >> i can't answer that. i'm done. >> hear ye! hear ye! that's the news. god save the queen. >> sounds like the duke and the dukess are expecting. >> the dukess? this is good. the first turned out dprait and so they're going to go back and two for two. >> i said why do we care? you know how long we fought to get away. no taxation without representation.
3:02 am
>> it is a minute after the top of the hour. we've got a lot to talk to you about this morning. >> united states warplanes taking out isis targets near iraq's crucial dam. the new barrage of airstrikes comes as president obama prepares to outline a plan to fight isis. for more on that and what we expect from the president this week we turn to peter doocy live in washington. >> reporter: good morning. it could be three years until isis is eliminated. "the new york times" reports the president wants to continue using scraiks in iraq to protect americans -- airstrikes in iraq. after next week's iraqi elections the plan is to train the iraqi military. third and finally, strike inside syria. the president is clear, his ideas do not include a long-term american military presence in the area. >> this is not the equivalent of the iraq war. what this is is similar to
3:03 am
the kinds of counterterrorism campaigns that we've been engaging in consistently over the last five, six, seven years. >> that plan might not be good enough for some democrats, though. you've heard senator dianne feinstein already call for airstrikes in syria and other lawmakers stress action against isis must be taken quickly because it may be hard to pick up american passport holders sympathetic to the cause. >> the fact of the matter is this group has among their ranks hundreds if not thousands of people with the capability of entering the united states quickly and easily, and we should not take that lightly. >> on wednesday the president is going to share his anti-isis game plan with the nation, and ahead of that tomorrow he will sit down with democrats and republicans from the house and senate to explain his thinking. back to you in new york. >> at that time with a meeting with members of congress he's probably
3:04 am
going to say i need half a billion dollars to help train these guys. the president is going to have his speech on wednesday. how many different signals has he sent out? in january he said they were the j.v. last week or the week before he said i'm going to manage. no, i'm going to destroy. apparently now he says he's going to destroy isis over three years leaving a lot for perhaps his successor. as peter mentioned, there are democrats who are saying, mr. president, you've got to do something. >> what i want to hear is to reassure the american public and the world that we're standing up, we're going to have a strategy and we're not going to rest until we bring these people to justice and stamp them out. >> time's a wasting because we now said we're going to go on the offensive and it's time for america to project power and strength. >> here's the they think. we have a few nations who said they're going to get involved. once we get the strategy
3:05 am
we'll find out what their role will be. maybe they'll feel the same way. canada, france, germany, italy, poland and denmark. a lot of arab nations say don't sign me up yet because we need to know what you guys are going to do, what the plan is, because it affects them more they want to know they're going to stick to it because we're still paying the price for saying we're going to do airstrikes on syria, saying that is a red line and not doing it and not financing the presyrian army. the president says when it comes to the ground game we're motte -- not going to be doing that. but he's going to rely on the iraqi army to help out and the free syrian army that he said wasn't an option to finance. did he forget to bring up the kurds and other arab nations that should be pressured to do something else? >> in an interview on meet the press the president was asked about that moment that he went golfing just
3:06 am
moments after james foley's parents were just crying and so upset about their son being bow -- beheaded. he said i'm sorry but i'm not sorry. listen. >> you know, it is always a challenge when you're supposed to be on vacation because you're followed everywhere. and part of what i'd love is a vacation from the press. >> two and a half years. >> yeah. after having talked to the family where it was hard for me to hold back tears listening to the pain that they were going through, after the statement that i made, that i should anticipated the optics but part of this job is also the theater. part of it is how are you -- it's not something that always comes naturally to me. >> many would argue that
3:07 am
the theater of it is something that the president is actually very good at and that's how he got into office. it wasn't because of his experience. it was because of how great he was at the theater. >> he said that was dumb of me but i did it. i was on vacation. he blames the optics, blames the theater, blames the press. he used to blame bush all the time. he blamed the illegal alien children, that wave of them. the worry is for a lot of people is that without the teleprompter the president doesn't know exactly what to do correctly. that's what you need in a leader, somebody to do the right thing. and he just confessed he didn't do the right thing. >> but no one wants him to be perfect and it is impossible to be perfect. that is why president bush said i was not smart to go on the golf course and make those comments on the golf course. i'm not going to golf again. it just so happens this is the same game.
3:08 am
if president bush's passion was playing tennis or something like that, he would say i won't play tennis again. i just think there is nothing wrong, if the president wants to say i don't know what i was thinking, but he didn't really say that. instead he said you guys keep following me around on vacation. the reason you came off vacation is because there was a beheading and taunting from one of our chief enemies on the planet who is looking to stage an attack here perhaps. meanwhile mitt romney was the lead guest on "fox news sunday." he was asked about the president and his would-be strategy we're going to hear about on isis. listen. >> we fought long and hard to provide security and freedom for those people. yet the president was, i don't know, too busy on the golf course to pick up the phone and meet with leaders around the world and say what happens if? the know the pentagon was going through "what if" scenarios but the president wasn't. hasn't developed a strategy. i don't know whether you can't see reality from a
3:09 am
fair way but the president has not seen reality internationally. >> what's curious is it does appear official main astrodome media are -- mainstream media are starting to turn on the president. >> it is interesting the daily news. nine minutes after the top of the hour. heather nauert has come back to work with us for a little while. >> it is great to be back with you guys. missed you a lot. i do have news to bring you. we've got news out of texas. dozens of volunteers spending the weekend certainlying for a woman missing in texas. 23-year-old christina morris disappeared eight days ago. she was last seen leaving a mall parking garage with friends. her family says they are not giving up hope. >> i'm strong. i still have faith. i know my daughter is alive. >> police are saying
3:10 am
they're planning to talk with other drivers who parked in a nearby parking garage. later on "fox & friends" at 8:15 eastern time christina's parents will join us live. months after the donald sterling scandal there is another nba team that is on the market due to offensive comments made by its owner. bruce levinson is selling the atlanta hawks after he admitted to sending a racist e-mail in 2012. he blamed the hawks' attendance problems on, quote, the black crowd who scared away the whites. he has apologized to fans saying if you're angry about what i wrote, you should be. i'm angry at myself too. a big announcement from the royal palace confirming prince william and kate middleton are expecting their second child. kate suffering severe morning sickness. you may remember she was hospitalized while she was pregnant with prince george because of that. right now she is being
3:11 am
treated by doctors at the palace. her due date not yet released. the founder of chick-fil-a has died. a spokesperson for the restaurant chain confirms that he passed away peacefully overnight at his home surrounded by family after he suffered a long time illness. he opened the first chick-fil-a in that chain has more than 1,800 restaurants in 39 states. it is a $63 fortune for that family. he was 93 years old. love that restaurant. they have great customer service and so many wonderful people working there. >> all right. we saw the video of him, ray rice, dragging his girlfriend through a hotel. now we're seeing inside the actual elevator and it's very clear, he really let her have it. >> we did not know his fiancee --
3:12 am
>> now wife. >> we didn't know what happened in the elevator. now the tmz got a hold of what happened inside. he clearly knocked her out. this just adds to it. roger goodell said last week i blew it. when it comes to domestic abuse it shouldn't be two weeks. it's going to be six weeks and the second time you're banned for life. >> this happened at a hotel in atlantic city that just shut down for good. what is so wild about it is he doesn't seem phased after it happens. he just drags her out. it looks like he kind of lunged at her first and she hits him and he gives her the one-two punch that knocks her out. >> boom, he smashed her head on the elevator handrail, knocked out cold. the nfl looked at this video reportedly before
3:13 am
they decided it would games is enough. are you kidding me? crazy. >> coming up straight ahead, fixing the border crisis now on hold and who is the president blaming? >> this problem with unaccompanied children that we saw a couple of weeks ago where you had from central america a surge of kids who were showing up at the border got a lot of attention. >> it's the kids' fault? >> self-driving cars may be on the road sooner than you think. one company already has a realistic time line to make it happen. ♪ i make a lot of purchases for my business. and i get a lot in return with ink plus from chase. like 50,000 bonus points when i spent $5,000 in the first 3 months after i opened my account.

3:18 am
we've got this immigration crisis on our hands. the fact of the matter is that the number of people apprehended crossing our borders has plummeted offense the course of the decade. it's far lower than it was ten years ago. >> but isn't this really more about political timing? joining us is the spokesperson for the lee bra -- for the libra initiative. good morning, rachel. >> good morning. thanks for having me on today. >> you bet. there's the president blaming the children, but really what he should be doing when you know what the back story is, is through one of his executive actions, he essentially got the ball rolling where people thought if my kids get there, they'll be americans. so that's why they started pushing their kids towards the southern border. >> exactly. it is a new low. you gaza strip mentioned before how he used to blame george bush for everything. now he's blaming the innocent victims for his
3:19 am
policy, the daca policy. these are the same kids he refused to visit, didn't have the heart to visit them at the border. absolutely. this is a crisis he created. what happened is it exposed anyone who had doubts that the border wasn't secure they saw that when all these central american children were able to make it over. now we have the croifs in the middle east and threats of the homeland from isis. his idea of immigration reform which was legalization, citizenship first and border security later really isn't that appealing to americans anymore. i think they really want border security first. then i think it's really clear that the most powerful members of congress both in the senate and in the house of representatives want to find a compromise. but i think for him the immigration issue is always about politics and not really about finding solutions or helping
3:20 am
hispanics. that's why we don't have a solution. >> right. if he does this by executive fiat, it is going to further polarize. the right is going to be angry. the left is going to be -- actually the left is angry right now. he says it is a problem with kids coming. it is a political calculation on the side of the president. >> it's always a political calculation with him. doing an executive action will make things worse especially when we know there is a solution that everyone can agree on. >> exactly. rachel campos joining us from minneapolis to talk about this important issue. thank you very much. 20 minutes after the top of the hour. coming up, just as kids go back to school, hundreds around the country getting slammed with a mystery virus and it's spreading. symptoms you need to watch out for coming up. nothing is going to stop this kicker from practicing diewr half time. -- fracking during half

quick headlines. the u.s. coast guard calling off its search for the small plane that crashed near jamaica killing two new yorkers. it veered off course while heading to naples, florida. officials say they are not likely to find any debris from the wreckage after thunderstorms hit the area. general motors announcing it will unveil a cadillac model in two years that can travel on highways without the driver holding the steering wheel or pressing the gas pedal. the technology takes control of the car at 70 miles per hour and in
3:25 am
stop-and-go traffic. you try it first. >> 24 minutes after the hour. hundreds of kids hospitalized in ten states across the mid weftd with a rare and severe respiratory virus. it starts like a common cold but within hours leaves kids gasping for air. it is reportedly very contagious. will it spread and what can you do to keep your kids safe? what is it we're seeing? >> what we're seeing is a subtype of relatively common verse called intro virus. as pediatricians we see this throughout the summertime and the fall. this is a more severe subtype and kids are presenting with colds and fevers. younger children and kids who have more underlying respiratory illnesses like asthma or cystic fibrosis are presenting with a more
3:26 am
severe form of it, presenting with respiratory distress and requiring treatments and sometimes being intubated having a breathing tube. it can get pretty severe relatively rapidly. >> when you hear the words gasping for air that can scary especially when it can be deadly. no reports of any deaths with this? >> correct. no reports of any deaths. in the united states we have a very good medical system. if a child presents where they suddenly have a high fever and coughing or having difficulty breathing they need to get immediate medical attention. >> are we starting to see this because all the kids are back in school and it is like a petri dish? >> absolutely. when kids get back in school we see an uptick in viruses. whenever they are together there is a huge uptick. >> how do we know the difference between this and the common cold and how do we treat it? >> good question.
3:27 am
it is sometimes difficult to differentiate the symptomology because the common cold and this virus are similar. the common cold doesn't progress to severe respiratory illness. but what we're talking about can progress to severe illness. the only way to tell the difference is by testing. that is the truest way to tell. >> you start exhibiting symptoms, go to the doctor? >> exactly. >> doctor, thank you so much. 27 minutes after the hour on your monday morning. remember when president obama called isis a j.v. team? now he's saying he didn't. >> i wasn't specifically referring to isil. >> next, the official ruling on his comments. were they true or false? first a big happy

3:32 am
but the bethune marching band continued to play without missing a beat. >> let me ask you this. who had custody of the field? the football team or the half time show? >> put it this way, they both felt as though they did. that's the key. here's the thing, if you're in the band that is your job. you can't leave, that is your formation. it is amazing to me the kicker wouldn't say give me ten minutes to practice. >> a little crazy. >> what bothers me is the trombone empties its spitoon on the field. >> we've been telling you about the president of the united states and his mixed message when it comes to isis or isil as he refers to it. remember in january with david remnick he referred to it as the j.v. team. yesterday he said hey, people got that wrong.
3:33 am
listen. here's the president. >> keep in mind i wasn't specifically referring to isil. i said that regionally there were a whole series of organizations that were focused primarily locally, more focused on the homeland because i think a lot of us when we think about terrorism, the model is osama bin laden and 9/11. and i was very specific at that time. what i said was not every regional terrorist organization is automatically a threat to us that would call for a major offensive. >> rather than answering the question about intelligence or misjudgment, he disclaims it away. the ruling from plit fact says this is false this explanation. it says obama was not specifically asked about islamic state but it is pretty clear this is the group being referenced in the conversation. the transcript backs this up as do news events from the time of the discussion.
3:34 am
we rate the statement false. >> david remnick asked him specifically about how isis had taken over fallujah. he said even the period of time you were on vacation, al qaeda is resurgent. he said essentially it's j.v. just because you're wearing kobe bryant's jersey doesn't mean you're kobe bryant. they are actually better than kobe bryant. >> good morning, i have a disturbing story out of the south. an out-of-control teenage mob brutally beats three people in a parking lot in a store and it is caught on camera. it is pretty difficult to watch. a 25-year-old man was attacked by a group as he left a memphis kroger
3:35 am
grocery store to walk to his car. two employees ran out to help but they were hit in the head with 20-pound pumpkins and knocked unconscience by that. the police director issuing a strong warning to parents. listen to this. >> we're going to sit down and try to craft a plan where we can hold parents accountable. we can do a lot but we can't do everything. and i certainly cannot raise every single kid. >> it makes a lot of sense there. the three victims were treated on the scene for their injuries. a six-year-old boy was very close to becoming the prey of a mountain lie yn. the animal attacked a chiel on a california hiking trail in the middle of the afternoon drags the six-year-old away. his father and another man started shouting and were able to fight off that mountain lion. the boy has been hospitalized with craches. authorities plan to send out dogs to track down that mountain lion. the legal battle is not

3:45 am
the terror group isis was a regatta boston mosque. that's the same mosque a suspected terrorist went to. we're live from cambridge, massachusetts, with more. >> where this mosque is located is about a block over from this lovely street we're standing in cambridge, massachusetts, right now. according to this new york post article, they are saying that eight people with suspected ties to terrorism are regular worshipers at this mosque and among those people is 32-year-old ahmed abrusama, believed to be working for isis as their propaganda chief. he grew up in massachusetts, attended high school in massachusetts and studied computer science at u. mass before allegedly going to syria. now he is said to be a regular worshiper at a

objective. isis is the most wealthy terrorist organization in the world. other criminal gangs will do anything for money. the president is always saying he's got a phone and a pen. isis has a phone and a pen too and this would be much more convenient and something they could do much more immediately than having to infiltrate their own people using passports to come to this country. they could call up these guys, use their pin to wire them $5 million or $10 million and say go to arizona or new mexico or minnesota or new york and do what you did last year in mexico. >> do you want to physically take out a grid or can electric pulse take out a grid? would they be capable of doing the latter? >> they would need a nuclear warhead to do that and isis doesn't have that yet. although north korea will sell anything to anybody. north korea has got nuclear weapons. in a longer term threat i would worry about that. isis displayed it has ballistic missile. one of the concerns of the
3:49 am
congressional committee is a terrorist organization might get hold of a nuclear mission from a rogue state. iran has practiced doing something like this. the immediate threat i've been talking about lately is a physical sabotage attack like what happened in the transformer substation last year on april 16 which appears to have been some kind of a professional attack according to u.s. navy seals. >> you've been warned. let's bolster security around that area. peter pry, thanks so much. we change gears now. 11 minutes before the top of the hour. this is what a two-game nfl suspension looks like. this horrifying new video showing ravens running back ray rice take out his fiancee in an atlantic city elevator. before you rush to buy the new iphone, machines like this one will pay you cash for your old one. and that's not all. our cyber guy here with details.

4:01 am
>> this is bill medley of the righteous brothers and you're watching "fox & friends" and you're in for the time of your life. >> thank you, bill. that's great. >> you know who is elated even more than the parents, the royal parents of the announcement we haven't officially made yet? martha mccallum? >> really? >> i've never seen anybody more excited than royal babies. >> have you talked to her today? >> she may not come in today. >> she was on baby watch for how long and to come home to her kids. >> she spent all nine months in england. >> that's part of the news this morning. we're going to talk to donald trump in just a moment. first we turn to heather childers who has been working on another shift for the last couple of weeks and joins us here. >> it's great to be back with you. i've got important news that parents need to listen to. this is affecting children from colorado to the east coast, listen up to this. more than 1,000 children have so far been sickened by a rare virus that doesn't even have a
4:02 am
name yet. but it starts off like the common cold. it sends some kids rushing to the hospital because they can't breathe. so far more than ten states have been hit by the mystery illness. doctors warn there will be a lot more of them. so who is most vulnerable? >> listen. >> kids who have more respiratory illnesses like asthma or cyst tick fibrosis are presenting with a more severe form of it. they require nebulizers, having a breathing tube. it can get severe rather rapidly. >> focus on the symptoms, coughing, sneezing, runny nose, wheezing, currently there is no vaccine and say go to your doctor and ask questions. you can be tested for that. dozens of volunteers not giving up the search for a missing woman in texas. 23-year-old christina morris disappeared eight days ago after attending a party. she was last seen on surveillance video leaving a mall parking garage with a

friend. her family saying they will not give up. >> i'm strong. i still have faith and i know my daughter is alive. >> police say they're planning to talk with other drivers who parked in the garage where morris was last seen. later on "fox & friends" at 8:15 eastern time today, her parents will join us live for the latest. and then look at this, this is really a disturbing story out of tennessee. out of control teenage mob brutally beats three people in a parking lot. it's all caught on camera and we want to warn you, it's difficult to watch. look at that guy as he just stomps on that man and kicks him. a 25-year-old man was attacked by this group as he left a memphis kroger grocery store just to walk to his car. two employees ran out of the store to help the guy. they were hit on the head with 20-pound pumpkins and knocked unconscious. the police director now issuing a strong warning to parents.
4:04 am
>> we are going to sit down and try to craft a plan where we can hold parents accountable. we can do a lot, but we can't do everything. i certainly cannot raise every single kid. >> seems like a good idea, right? hold the parents responsible for the actions. three victims were treated on the scene for their injuries. finally, great news. out of a lot of gulf of mexico news. a big baby announcement coming from the royal palace. prince william and kate middleton are expecting their second child. kate is from morning sickness once again. you may remember she was hospitalized while she was pregnant with prince george. right now she's being treated by doctors at kensington. we don't know her due date yet. the new baby is set to be forth in line to the throne. those are your headlines. is this pretty nice, huh? glad we have some happy news. >> it is good news. thank you very much.
4:05 am
>> the queen is still alive, so there is still a long wait. >> i think she does yoga. let's dial in donald trump who joins us every monday at this time. good morning. >> good morning. >> the president regarding isis has been all over the place. he said, yes, the j.v., then he said it's a cancer. he said we're going to manage them. we're going to destroy them. now he's going to have a speech on wednesday where he's going to say we're going to destroy them burks it could take three years. what do you think about the president's unique approach to isis? >> do we not know by now that this man has no idea what he's doing? and it is not isis, according to him, he's the one person that is isil and he's got a reason for saying that. how did he become the president, folks? it's ridiculous. the whole thing is ridiculous. the strategy, the concept of strategy is okay if you want to keep it to yourself. but when you start going around saying i have no strategy, as
4:06 am
opposed to, hey, i want to keep quiet, the great general paton or macarthur didn't talk about strategy or anything. they just went out and did what they had to do. but we have somebody in office that obviously shouldn't have been there. that's been proven and well documented. >> let's talk about what he did say. he was asked by chuck todd about the decision he made to golf minutes after, within a half hour making a speech condemning the death and beheading of james foley. listen to what he said. >> you know, it is always a challenge when you're supposed to be on vacation because you're followed everywhere and part of what i love is a vacation from the press and -- because -- >> i promise you, 2 1/2 years that happens. >> yeah. after having talked to the families where it was hard for me to hold back tears listening
4:07 am
to the pain that they were going through, after the statement that i made, that i should have anticipated the optics. part of this job is also the theater. part of it is how are you -- it's not something that always comes naturally to me. >> what do you think of his response? >> well, he says part of the job is theater. i think part of the job is competence and he's blaming the media. he's blaming all of you in the media for his going out and playing golf. look, nobody likes and respects golf more than i do. i think golf is a great thing and a great game. but there is a time and there is a place for everything. an american reporter had his head chopped off and he's on the fairway 15 minutes later after his news announcement. he couldn't get his clothing off fast enough to put on a golf
4:08 am
outfit. usually he do not wear a tie anyway. i'm not sure he was wearing a tie then. the whole thing is just ridiculous. look, we have somebody that's almost like he doesn't want the position. he's got it. he likes campaigning. and that's about it. sort of likes campaigning. i'm not sure he likes anything. but we have a president that really doesn't seem to want to be there. >> donald, we've got new video that was just released this morning, something everybody is going to be talk being at work today, shows ravens runningback ray rice punching his then girlfriend, fiance, now wife, knocking her out. we've seen the video before of him dragging her out of the elevator. roger goodell saying he blew it because this is what a two-game nfl suspension looks like and you say? >> it's a tough video. now i've seen it a couple times this morning and it's a tough video. he really whacked her and you see she was seriously
4:09 am
unconscious. roger is a terrific guy. i know him. he admitted he made a mistake. he said it. it takes a big man to do that. and he said future, things like this will be dealt with more harshly. that was disturbing video. the attack on the store was very disturbing that you had just previously. that was also disturbing. and we ought to do things much tougher in this country. we've become a very politically correct country and that's hurting us very badly. >> you got six weeks now for one time and now you have a lifetime if you do it twice. that's the new nfl rule which the players association might have a role in. let's fast forward to something yesterday. very few people that we know had a chance to be inside joan rivers' funeral. she was treated like the true star she was during life, passing away at the age of 81 years old. of course, she was taping your latest edition of "celebrity apprentice." so tell us what it was like
4:10 am
inside the synagogue. >> well, it was amazing and we just finished taping and she's on two episodes, major roles. she's like the advisor, sits next to me. she was in great form just recently. i spoke to her a few days ago. it's just incredible. i spoke to her a week ago. just really incredible that this could have happened. the funeral itself was beautiful. i have to say, howard stern, whether you like him or not and i happen to like him. i know him pretty well. much different guy when you're with him than on air. but howard stern was incredible yesterday. he did an amazing job. and joan would have been very proud. a lot of people packed the -- the police were represented beautifully. joan would have been very, very proud. it was really -- it was funny. it was fun. it was everything she -- very different -- everything she would have liked. she was a terrific woman and it was a terrific day in honor of her. >> it was. when you're there with friends and family and people who knew
4:11 am
her, i would imagine some of the buzz was just about what the heck happened to her? >> well, i think it was bad doctoring. i mean, i literally spoke to her a couple of days before this tragedy was announced. i said to people that were in my office, boy, the energy of this woman. i know she's 81 or 82 years old and when she won on "celebrity apprentice," she was 76. she had more strength than great athletes. we have athletes. we have young actors and all these people were much, much younger. she was two or three times older than most of them and she had more energy than all of them. so when this happened, i said, what was this? look, i think the doctors probably made a tragic mistake and they probably know it. and you know, it was a very, very strange thing. she's 81, but just seemed like she could go on forever. at 81, you might say, well, it's too bad. but she had such energy and
4:12 am
vitality. you would have think she would go on forever. for this mistake, and it was obviously a mistake in some form, but for this mistake to have taken place was really very sad. joan was a terrific woman with great vitality. >> did you want to speak at the funeral? >> i would not have necessarily. if i would -- if asked, i would have. howard got up and spoke. numerous other people spoke. and they were all terrific. but howard stern, he caught the essence of joan. he really did. >> and i just heard in an interview he just did with her, and you could see the friendship was incredible. really knows her well. >> i could say he knows her very well. probably better than most and he represented her well. no question. >> she got a sendoff for a big star and she certainly was. donald trump joins us every monday, thank you very much. >> thank you. dozen minutes after the top of the hour. isis terrorists want us dead. the president's plan to stop

4:18 am
region well. are you confident we can count on the free syrian army to free up iraq? >> first off, the administration's missing the picture here. we need to be talking to the gulf council states. we've got to get the saudis and uae to commit into this thing. they've got to commit with money, air power. we got to get some of their ground troops involved in this, too, because you don't want iraqi shia forces going into the sunni area to fight there. that is not -- let's talk about the iraq area first. we're going to have to build a coalition there. the kurds aren't going to go into their areas 'cause the kurds primarily a defensive force will want to defend kurdistan. you are going to need a sunni force, maybe some jordanians. but we'll build a coalition of forces to go into these sunni areas. these tribesmen switched sides because they were treated so badly by the maliki government and they supported isis' entry.
4:19 am
so this is a significant political and sustained effort that's going to be required here. that's one thing the president said correctly. a sustained effort. but he's not even talking about the partners properly on who we're going to need to do this job. >> right. so we have to convince the saudis to put troops on the ground, uae, and convince qatar to put troops on the ground. i'm not seeing that. so far. what kind of leverage do we have to get them to act, their own safety? >> look, in the end, isis presents a threat to all of them. the leader of saudi arabia came out and said isis was a threat to islam. that means the door has been opened in saudi arabia. we're expanded cooperation on this. we just got to go talk to the saudis. they are suspicious of the united states because we were talking to the iranians without consulting with them, about their nuclear program. so we're going to have to repair our relationship with saudi arabia. there is a lot of heavy lifting diplomatically that's going to have to be done with the gcc to

get them in. but we need sunni forces on the ground in the sunni areas. we can't come in with the shia from baghdad and from southern iraq with these militias and drive into sunni area. it's not going to work. >> very important point, there is a subtlety to this fight and this war that we're going to be taking up i guess announced wednesday, because if you take isis out, iran and syria's regime benefit, which is something nobody wants. thanks so much. >> great pleasure. straight ahead, how much olive garden would you eat for $100? i'm asking you that. we'll tell you about the restaurant's new offer. and check out these numbers. there is a lot less household with married parents than there used to be. is the traditional family a thing of the past? what does that do to our society? we'll discuss that next. ♪ ♪ she inspires you.

4:26 am
parents. today it's just 62%. a drop of 26%. what's going on here? >> well, i think women are having more options. back when my mother was pregnant with me, she was fired for being pregnant. she was a married lady. there were probably heck of a hot more marriages pretty miserable with women feeling very, very trapped. >> all right. speaking of women, the single mom is rising in popularity. you look in 2010, 30% of all families, the children were being raised by the mom only, whereas mark, back in 1960, it was 7%. today fatherlessness is something that is growing. >> it's a huge thing, no question about it. in fact, in the study, the author suggests that the big story is really the decline of marriage and the rapid rise of single parenthood and this whole
4:27 am
fatherlessness issue is an epidemic in our country. in fact, a third of all children are growing up without their dad involved in their lives and it's wreaking havoc on our children. and also on our country. >> sure. jessica, do you see that as a problem? >> listen, absolutely. listen, it's always an issue in an ideal world we'd have a mother and father. but let me tell you what i think might be a bigger issue, is that you know what? these kids already know that they don't have a dad. but to have it pounded into them that somehow their family is of less value because they don't have the father there or if they're a two mother or two father household that their family is less important and less valid is really what's hurting kids because i assure you that women are smarter than that. they're not going out there and going, oh, hey, i think i'm going to go have a couple of
4:28 am
kids and nobody to help me. i think i'm going to be in this alone on purpose. that's not what's happening. what's happening is that people are making the very best that they can of a tough situation. also i think that many of these households that people probably are two parents and just didn't bother to get married, which is really just fine, as long as there is a commitment to the kids and to each other. >> that's your opinion. mark, i've got a feeling yours is contrary to that. >> no question about it. study after study does absolutely show that having a mom and dad involved in their kid's life, having children who are loved by both the mom and dad is absolutely critical and that is the most efficient and effective way to raise children. not only socially and emotionally, but also economically as well. the demise of marriage as we
4:29 am
know it -- and i hope that institution will carry on forever -- but is really having a huge impact on our children as well as our country. >> i think there is no argument about that. jessica, joining us from los angeles and mark from tampa, great discussioning, thank you very much. >> great to be with you. >> to the minutes of a the top of the hour. coming up, more somali americans apparently are turning against the homeland to fight for isis. so who is recruiting these future terrorists to the united states and how is it happening right under our nose? the latest on the investigation. then they are some of your favorite snacks like hoho's. why do they taste so good? the judge of the hit show "rerapped" is live with us with his next quiz, coming up. ♪ ♪

this was one that i had set my sights on a couple of years ago. it took a long time to make happen, but we eventually did. perhaps a little combination there. >> sam, you say that the pit had just -- it was about how high the empire state building is. so that can give us a little bit of perspective. you actually go into that and start having some problems with the gas mask because of the acid rain. what were some of the plights you dealt with on the journey? >> i would say it's quite difficult to breathe in there because the sulfur dioxide is a toxic fume and you're physically exerting yourself to get to the bottom of the cave. so when your gas mask is on your face, you're handered from being able to breathe. that was one challenge. but another challenge that we faced was actually on the ascent, we used motorized ascenders to pull us up.

5:02 am
that's going to be taking place at about noon. bret, first off, president obama has got a big announcement. first a meeting on tuesday. >> yeah. meeting with lawmakers on tuesday. we expect to have him lay out, we're told, the speech that he will make on wednesday and that is about how to deal with isis long-term. all the indications are that the administration is talking long-term here. and the real effort is to get this international coalition to sign on and to deal with this threat. we're not being told it's a call for immediate strikes inside syria or some broad sweeping military plan. so it will be interesting to see how it develops as far as what action will be moving forward. >> you can certainly hear the immediacy and the tone of democrats. let's take a listen to a couple of them. >> what i want to hear is to reassure the american public and the world that we're standing up, we're going to have a strategy and we're not going to rest until we bring these people to justice and we stamp them out. >> times awasting because we now
5:03 am
said that we're going to go on the offensive and it's time for america to project power and strength. >> of course, diane feinstein is the chairmanwoman of the intelligence committee. obviously she's in on a lot of information that most americans are not. for her to say that, what do you take away from that, bret? >> couple of things. these lawmakers are dealing with these intelligence briefs about the threat from isis and see it as real and developing and this coming up on the 9-11 anniversary. the possibility of western interest being threatened around the world. so they're saying project power. i think the question is you have to listen to the words being used. months ahead now. you see the front page of the "new york times" that it's going to be a long-term battle against isis. these are signals that the president is going to draw -- this will be a drawn out battle over time.
5:04 am
>> the "new york times" says the experts in the administration say it could be 36 months after the president has actually left. you're talking about words. bret, there have been so many mixed messages to the american public regarding isis and this particular terror threat. the president back in january called them the j.v. team and two weeks ago, said i'm going to destroy them, then i'm going to manage them. then i've got no strategy. whatever happened to the barak obama message machine, because it's all gummed up now? >> a number of issues there are some problems with clarity. >> that's being charitable. >> you look at a number of places, politico had a story today primarily about immigration reform, with you that the message is muddled, for the speech that had high goals and aspirations and rhetoric often has to get walked back and that becomes confusing.
5:05 am
that's what we're seeing on immigration. it's what we saw on isis and the president is looking to turn that around i think with the speech on wednesday. >> right. he's going to ask congress for money on tuesday and then tell america what he's going to do on wednesday. but not a prime time speech. an afternoon speech. now let's talk about your big special over the weekend, the authors who lived through the benghazi attack on 9-11 a couple years ago. here is a cut from them as these contractors talked about what it was like on the ground the night of the attack and who told them to stand down. >> comes up, thumbs up, we're ready to go. >> then what happened? >> i said hey, we're ready to go. bob looks right through me and looks at them and goes, you need to wait. >> bob was the c.i.a.'s base chief in benghazi. >> i said hey, we need to get over there. we're losing the initiative. bob just looked straight at me and said, stand down. you need to wait. >> we're starting to get calls
5:06 am
from the state department guys saying hey, we're taking fire. we need you here. we need help. >> after being repeatedly told to wait, the security team says they divide orders and headed to the besieged consulate on their own. they asked repeatedly for armed air support, which never came. >> i gave you that 30 minutes back, would ambassador stevens and sean smith be alive today? >> yes. they would still be alive. >> so that's what it comes down to. they say they were told to stand down and the way the administration explains it is there was never a stand down order because we never order them to go anywhere and that bob guy was just saying hang on a second. >> yeah. it is a semantics issue here. and that the state department says that there is no formal stand down order. it's not just the state department. it's many reports, including the house intelligence committee saying that. but the semantics of the formal stand down order as opposed to
5:07 am
don't go, wait and what these guys say is stand down, i think is where this battle is. the bottom line is this is the first time we've heard from these guys on the ground and almost two years and they tell their story and they say they believe with that 25 minutes roughly, they would have been able to make a difference. the administration says the c.i.a. was working to get local militias to back them up, provide more weapons. those never really came and the guys were on their own and they disobeyed the order to go and they went on their own. >> yeah. had they not taken meters into their own hands, how much worse could it have been? thanks for bringing us that special. it was fantastic. >> it was a compelling to hear their story finally. listen, no matter what you think, where you are on the politics of all of this, just to
5:08 am
hear it from people on the ground was a moment. >> it was indeed. the new book is called "13 hours." bret baier will be live from washington ten hours from now right here. >> call the town crier. >> we can get him here. >> just watch. "special report" who always steals our ideas, will actually open up their show with a town crier. you just watch. bret is giving us an indication. >> you want to put money on that? >> anna, give him some money. >> we're going to hand it over to heather nauert. >> good morning. i've got breaking news out of california this morning. we start with a fox news alert. tourists plucked from yosemite national park by helicopters as a wildfire burns out of control around them. at least 100 visitors, mostly hikers and campers in the area, have been rescued so far. they were climbing the popular half dome peak and they were air lifted out of there. then reunited with their family

5:10 am
risk. doctors say pay attention to the symptoms, they include coughing, sneezing, runny nose and wheezing. currentsly there is no vaccine for the virus, but you can be tested at your doctor's office. the founder of chick-fil-a has died. a spokesperson for that restaurants chain confirms that he passed away peacefully overnight at home surrounded by family after suffering from a long-time illness. he opened the first chick-fil-a in 1967. that chain now has more than 1800 restaurants in 39 states. it is worth $6 billion. he was 93 years old. remember, they're closed on sunday, so they gave the day off to employees to be with family. a big baby announcement from the royal palace. so many folks have been bummed out by by depressing news. we brought awe pregnancy. william and kate are expecting their second child. she's suffering from some morning sickness. you may remember she was hospitalized while pregnant with prince george for the same

regarding the balance of power in the u.s. senate. we're talking about barak obama's legacy. you take look now, 53 democrats plus two independents who caucus with democrats. 45 republicans right now. republicans need a net gain of six for control. if they have that, that changes everything. this just -- if he's putting things off, that shows you there is trouble. >> sure. they're nervous and i think it's fair to say, the latino base will be depressed, but it will affect just one race for the senate and that's in colorado. most of the rest of the state, this will not have a huge impact. however, i think you're wrong, steve. it's not just about getting six seats. the real story is looking to 2016. if the republicans get to 51 or 52, they're going to face a real tough map in 2016. the republicans will be favored to win the white house. the new republican president would want to have a republican senate and that means the republicans need to set their sights higher this year. it will be a long shot, bget a .
5:19 am
>> almost everyone agrees there has been no wave yet. let's look at the columns that you say are vulnerable to democrats. mark pryor is trailing by four points in arkansas. mary landrieu trailing within three points in louisiana. kay hagin maybe have a one point advantage in north carolina. >> those three democrats are in strongly republican states right now. states where the president is unpopular, where his health care law is unpopular. that's not a surprise, those three senators. the fact that we're talk being races in colorado and massachusetts and iowa, maybe massachusetts for a governor's race, but we've got a big race in michigan. we've got alaska in play. there is enough seats where you can say hey, these seats are all toss-ups right now. could still go either way. if they break for the republicans, it's another story. >> does the republican party take the senate, yes or no? >> yes. >> but the margin? >> the margin is what matters. >> and that's the key. thank you very much. >> good to see you.

it is the case of bad presidential theater. president obama says he should have foreseen the criticism for going golfing right after james foley's death. >> after the statement that i made, i should have anticipated the optics. that's part of the job. part of the job is the theater of it. part of it is how are you -- it's not something that always comes naturally to me. but it matters and i'm mindful of that. >> at this point, should we just expect the sort of thing from the administration? is what's good for president obama necessarily good for america? joining us now is fox news legal analyst peter johnson, jr. >> we shouldn't expect it and we should expect better and hope for better. unfortunately, steve, there is this notion of mental evague on behalf of the president. to evade what's real, to think,
5:53 am
well, if i don't acknowledge t maybe it doesn't really exist. the problem is it's a pretty good chance that if it looks bad in terms of the optics and he's talking about optics as if he's a political consultant, it is bad. golfing after a beheading statement looks bad. it is bad. a vegas political junky after four americans are failed to be rescued in benghazi after 13 hours and die, it looks bad because it is bad. so a lot of americans, including me, are saying we want this president to succeed because we want america to succeed. so i wonder this morning when i ask the question, maybe we can all consider it, would the president be doing better if he admitted the mistakes that he's made, admitted the errors and said as la guardia, the mayor of new york city, when i make a mistake, it's a beaut. people like to hear politicians
5:54 am
and leaders admit they make mistakes and do better so we can all do better. >> but it seems like this administration, the last thing they're going to do is say that, you know, they're all geniuses. last thing they're going to say is we made a mistake. first it wasn't my fault. it was george bush's fault. yesterday they blamed the illegal immigrant children for the trouble with immigration. >> the press as donald trump pointed out this morning, we can't let paris dictate the president's schedule. the president needs a vacation, too. even he's talking about the vacation that he needs as if he's a minimum wage guy that doesn't really care about where he works. although a lot of minimum wage people do care about where they work. something's got to change in terms of his tone, his approach and his understanding. so to say to the american people, listen, i shouldn't have golfed. i made a mistake, instead of talking about optics, to say, i
5:55 am
shouldn't have gone to las vegas and raised money for the democratic party in the wake of the death of four americans. i made a mistake. i didn't get terrorism. i got it wrong. now i think i'm getting it right and i need your help as americans. we can do this together. that's with i'm hoping for today because we want this country to succeed. we, democrat and republican, want this president to succeed because if he succeed. he's failing. time to pick up the game today. >> great message. let's hope they're listening. >> i hope so. >> peter johnson, jr., thank you very much. >> good to see you. straight ahead, what happens when a mother says i hate my kids? one for the road, coming up next your statement. fabulous. captivating. glamorous. fun-loving. wild. mysterious. one-of-a-kind.
