3:04 am
rights for all. she actually sued howard university. she filed a lawsuit in 2002 against howard university for discrimination because she was white. she alleged they favored african-american students and the judge there dismissed it in 2004 and ordered her to pay almost $3,000 in a bill of costs. you just think it can't get any worse for her. it did. her parents explained how this all started. >> they did, watch. >> it was around 2007 when we first saw a newspaper article from spokane, washington area that rachel had represented herself to the press as being african-american or biracial. >> were you shocked? >> well, we thought what is this? she's not telling the truth. >> did you call her up and say what are you doing? >> no she did not want to
3:05 am
communicate with us about anything. >> do you think she's pathological? >> i think rachel has some very serious issues yes. >> the parents hope they can reconcile with her. apparently there was a falling out a number of years ago where she said -- rachel said the family was violent with her. the family denies it. we're going to have her brother ezra with us just about an hour from right now. nonetheless, she has resigned but she does refuse to apologize for lying about being black when she's really white. >> 2007 she cut off all relations with her family. she also claimed a family friend -- a friend of hers that she befriended in idaho, albert wilkinson as her father who happens to be black. it sounds convenient and it sounds like an elaborate lie. >> apparently she asked her brother not to blow her cover, that brother we're going to speak with. in the meantime let's say hello
3:06 am
to our dear friend heather. are you calling the caddie? >> i'm calling the caddie. we need lots of help. i've got some serious news for you. it's a fox news alert. al qaeda's number 2 man is dead according to u.s. officials. the terror group confirming overnight, in a brand-new video that nasar hashi was killed in a drone strike. he was deputy to al qaeda leader al-wahishi. >> tragedy to tell you about california's magic mountain theme park. a child collapsing moments after stepping off the revolution roller coaster. ten-year-old was rush to the

3:08 am
this comes a day after jeb bush made his announcement. going to be quite a day. thank you very much. >> we have some great news today and a huge update on a story we covered yet. lafayette bobcats football in colorado they had all their equipment in a trailer. it was stolen. $150,000 of kids football equipment taken right out of their trailer and it was gone vanished and with it went their opportunity to have their season. it was about to be canceled. we spoke with them yesterday. we spoke with the kids. one of them was incredible. his name was julian macado. he said football is everything to me and now it was gone. we talk to their coach and president of the league who was devastated about this and someone saw it on our -- >> they did. >> a marine. >> if you saw this segment yesterday, you saw the sad faces on the kid. there was a marine recruiter who saw the story and said wait a
3:09 am
minute i know where that trailer is. it's over in the apple bee's parking lot. they went over. and they surmised it was probably made off with in the last couple of weeks. there it is right there. the good news is everything is inside. nothing was stolen. they have got all the stuff back and including the fact they suddenly have to deal with a cash problem because when they came on the program with elisabeth yesterday they had about $1,500 or something in a go fund me account. look at that. it's touching $5,000. so apparently what they are going to do is they are going to offer people -- anybody who donated, if you want your money back let us know we'll give you the money back. otherwise we could upgrade some of our stuff. >> a lot of people wrote and said why do you need all that money? it was the whole league's equipment. not the team's equipment. there was one name for an entire club sometimes. >> really just keep these kids playing and on the field.
3:10 am
the nfl runs a program called 360. they want everyone to play. someone took all their stuff and the license plates are gone off that trailer but we're happy the team has their stuff back. thanks to the viewers who paid attention. >> indeed. it's exactly 10 minutes after the hour on this tuesday. coming up on fox news alert, day 11 of the man hundred and the prison employee accused of helping them escape could be key to their capture. we're live from new york with the very latest. access denied a reporter set to cover hillary clinton's campaign shown the door even though he was invited there. that reporter is going to join us next. he's invited here.

3:15 am
good morning to you. >> thanks for having me on. >> explain how a pool works. you were designated as the pool reporter. what's that mean? >> well when a campaign has events that are too small for everybody to fit in if they are doing something in somebody's living room rather than close it to the press, they ask the reporters to choose somebody to represent everybody and be their eyes and ears and as reporters we love that because in addition we don't have to pay to travel for 14 or 15 events we can each go to one. it's a very common thing. in the white house, there's a daily press pool so one reporter or one organization is designated each day to send somebody to follow around the president. it's a very good system and in this case the clinton campaign asked for a pool to be set up to follow her. >> right. so on sunday night, i believe, you were designated as the print pool reporter. you were emailed where to show up. you show up yesterday morning and what are you told by the hillary clinton campaign? >> i'm told that they have
3:16 am
requested somebody else come not me. i wasn't allowed to get on the pool van. they had set aside a van to schlep reporters around and they said no no you can't get on. they denied the print pool the opportunity to send the journalist of their choice of the day and it did not go over well. >> you talked to a number of the people in the campaign there. come on the story is about to start. what kind of lame excuses were they giving you why you couldn't go in with your notepad? >> well, initially, first, they said they had an objection to foreign press organizations. although the daily mail the newspaper is in london. we're based in new york just like you guys are, and we have got over 200 people in new york. so eventually the campaign conceded that we're not actually foreign press. even the white house considers us domestic press. then they said oh, no it's not that. it's we want to mirror the white house pool and you guys aren't officially in the whitehouse
3:17 am
press corps. that was wrong. we've got frances ka chambers who has the same credentials as ed henry and associated press. they ran out of reasons. most of the observers i've talked to think it's because daily is very thorough and doged. >> that's the winner. they don't you, david. they don't like your coverage because you have been very thorough. many of the things you are done you are the guy who uncovered that hillary clinton had something like 2 million or inactive twitter followers. that the campaign was driving in supporters to an iowa event and very famously that the campaign security scooby truck was going 92 miles an hour. and a couple of days ago, you tweeted out this it is truly astonishing how many journalists at the hillary clinton speech today reported exactly and only what the campaign wanted them to. so you know what david, your
3:18 am
probably is you are not a stenographer for the campaign like a lot of people in the mainstream media and they didn't want you there. >> well, that may very well be the case but they don't get to pick and choose who covers them. that's the kind of thing we see from other countries that we don't want to be like. it's a very slippery slope. i give a lot of credit to the rest of the press corps. 14 news organizations, including ours signed a statement that said it's completely unacceptable what the clinton campaign did yesterday. if it's the level of accessibility and transparency that mrs. clinton is exhibiting at this point in the campaign imagine what the west wing will be like in 2016 if she wins. it's not good for journalism and the first amendment and you have to stand up and say this is ridiculous. by the way, it happened last night as well. i showed up at a flag day dinner event where hillary clinton was
3:19 am
the keynote speaker because i was supposed tos athe pool reporter and i was told i'm quoting, you need to leave, they threw me out of the building because they didn't like i was the designated reporter of the day. that's completely unacceptable. >> you were there to cover the story but instead you became the story. david martosko from the daily mail. thank you very much. we hope you get in today. >> today is jeb bush but it will be a different kind of fun. >> it will indeed. thank you very much. what do you think about that? that hillary rodham clinton campaign is trying to control who tells the story. email us you can facebook us or tweet us. making marijuana legal in more states but does that mean you could lose your job for getting high before you go to work? what a judge just decided straight ahead. pop quiz which president was packing heat just about

everywhere he went. we're pulling back the curtain on some of the deepest secrets of the oval office. he's coming up next. you probably know xerox as the company that's all about printing. but did you know we also support hospitals using electronic health records for more than 30 million patients? or that our software helps over 20 million smartphone users remotely configure e-mail every month? or how about processing nearly $5 billion in electronic toll payments a year? in fact, today's xerox is working in surprising ways to help companies simplify the way work gets done and life gets lived. with xerox, you're ready for real business. fact: when pharmacists are in pain the medicine in advil is their #1 choice for pain relief. more than the medicines in tylenol or aleve. use the medicine that pharmacists

3:25 am
security and she has no idea of the puzzle hidden inside the fist of the arm. >> that's where the book begins. you go to the secret service, what would you do if the first lady said i just found an arm in the garden. what did he they will you? >> that's not what they want to do but they said the first thing i would do secret service to me is i would renovate a room. i would put down some wallpaper, repain the wall if i do that i can get the first family out of the house, i can do a private investigation and the public and press won't know and now they said now you can have an investigation. >> here's interesting. it turns out that's something they always do and then you found out that they rent vated a room with the obama administration bush administration and clinton administration so possibly there were investigations going on at the time. >> i said it's gone on before.

3:28 am
>> we raised money for literacy for barbara bush. she looked amazing. the whole family is great. that's amazing to me i was there with w. jeb, and president and mrs. bush you forget it's a family. at the end of the day, if you or i run for president, obviously, it's all politics and with them though it's your brother, it's your son. you are watching someone you love get torn apart or pushed up in the press and that's just makes it far more emotional thing. to me as an outsider watching in i'm amazed how they pull together as a family for this moment. >> they have 41 43 and who knows, maybe 45. >> yes, that's exactly right. >> this is a great father's day gift. people looking for a gift from an established author. congratulations. we'll see you in new york city signing books. a fox news alert, day 11 of

what's the responsibility of the part of the country to protect his free speech rights? the responsibility of the government is profound. if he brings people to an environment, the message is it's safe. if some people come there to aggravate or destroy the environment because they disagree with his speech he cannot be held criminally responsible for his behavior. if that were the not case then you would have what the law calls a heckler's veto where a heckler in the audience could crash the speaker down. the first amendment says you have the right to utter speech that is hateful, speech that nobody likes and the government has the duty to protect your right to do so. >> the argument is this will draw so many resources as far as police you are taking away what they could do elsewhere as far as fighting crime if they need to be there when your event is going there?
3:48 am
>> the whole reason we have the government is to protect our rights the foremost is the freedom of speech. the goff has to prepare for that. they have plenty of time to prepare. we're giving them notice and telling them about it now. >> clearly, it's protected speech but clearly there are a lot of people who don't like the idea. he's trying to make a point, but the question is is it worth it? there's a security problem. >> well that's a great question because that's not one that can be answered right away is it worth it? the clip that you just ran of this guy, and i really like him, was if we start shying away from our freedoms today -- >> they will vanish. >> we'll be going down a slippery slope. his argument is and i agree with him, it is worth the risk because the first amendment, if the government does what it's supposed to do it doesn't always do it the first amendment will be triumphant. >> thank you so much for dropping by the couch. >> a victory when you are always here. it's 11 minutes before the

4:11 am
pool reporter. they didn't like his liberal take apparently on some of the writing. >> here's the thing. campaign doesn't get to choose who gets to cover them. and the print reporters all got together and they formed this pool as a suggestion of the clinton campaign. so they said to david, okay you're the guy for monday. he showed up yesterday morning. they go oh, you're that guy from the daily mail right? then they started making up these excuses. >> there is no room in the van. >> yeah. they had foreign ownership of your newspaper. big problem. it was because he has been very critical of the campaign. and in fact when she announced on roosevelt island he sweeted out it is truly astonishing how many journalists at the hillary clinton speech today reported exactly and only what the campaign wanted them to report. unlike some other reporters in the mainstream media, he is not a stenographer for hillary clinton and he just calls them as he sees them.
4:12 am
he was on with us about an hour ago. >> they don't get to pick and choose who covers them. that's the kind of thing we see from other countries that we don't want to be like. it's a very slippery slope. look i gave a lot of credit to the rest of the press corps. 14 news organizations including ours signed a statement last night saying it's completely unacceptable what the clinton campaign did yesterday. everybody understands that if they can mess with one of us they can mess with all of us. if this is the level of accessibility and transparency that mrs. clinton is exhibiting at this point in the campaign imagine what the west wing will be like in 2017 if she wins. if something is just not good for journalism not good for the first amendment, eventually you have to stand up and say this is ridiculous. >> ed henry's frustration yesterday after she takes a few questions. he was sitting right up in front and she totally ignored him. >> really denying not only reporters but american people. >> sure.

we have a fox news alert. two children attacked by sharks on the same north carolina beach are listed in good condition this morning after losing limbs in separate attacks. >> wghp reporter is live in oak island where the terrifying scenes unfolded. good morning you to michael. the photos are so hard to look at. what's going on here? >> good morning. we're talking about a 12-year-old female and a 16-year-old male who are the victims here. i'm actually standing right next to the pier where the 12-year-old was attacked. and we're talking about a two mile stretch of beach right within 90 minutes of each other. officials have been kind of combing the area looking for any sharks that could come more inland for the last couple of days. and they haven't ruled out the possibility that this is a rogue shark or a single shark that is responsible for both of these attacks. but if you take a look on that pier you can actually see a lot of people walking by and most of them are pretty hesitant to get
4:19 am
into the water. the fire chief told us yesterday that he would definitely go in but people out here really aren't buying that and the major concerns are just how vicious these attacks were. the 12-year-old girl actually was bit in the arm and the leg. she had to have her arm pew take theed amputated near the elbow. the 16-year-old boy had his arm taken off at the shoulder. these are two of the most vicious attacks that they have seen in the past 80 years. we've had 52 shark attacks off the north carolina coast. and we actually had a third attack on friday before this weekend which was just a few hours away from where these two attacks happened on sunday. so people are definitely pretty flustered. they have a couple questions. one, why this shark or these sharks came so close to shore and, two, what kind of sharks they were. here in north carolina we have
4:20 am
three of the most dangerous sharks in the world. we have the great white but people are saying that they don't believe it was a great white because they think that they would have seen it. these two victims were in waist to shoulder high deep water and they think that the great white would have basically beached itself if it was the culprit. then they also have the tiger sharks here one of which was caught swimming up a river in wilmington last week. and lastly we have the bull shark, notoriously aggressive. they love the shallow water. they love the dark water and experts say if they bump into something, chances are they'll bite down on it. >> michael hennessy joining us from north carolina.thank you very much. terrible. >> scary. >> and now this. a fox news alertd five people dead and more hurt after a balcony collapses in california. the details coming in right now. >> and does this guy look like a trouble maker to you? brian could be in your throwing

4:27 am
you to sint release, they can't sign away their obligation to take care of your kids nor can you sign away your obligation to take care of other people's kids. so releases and waivers don't mean a lot at all. >> you're still liable? >> you're still liable. >> what about this? what if the parents aren't home? a situation that we've seen in movies like this. >> this is way more than 100 people. >> of course it is it's plus one. >> i got another call. i'm sure the neighbors are exaggerating. >> what if my parents see it? >> nobody is going to see. this i promise. >> okay. so parents are not home during the party k. they still go to jail if something like that happens? >> that is the absolute reason they will go to jail. in almost every state in the country, if you negligently supervise a group of minors or you contribute to the delinquency of a minor, you can be charged. you can go to jail. and people have gone to jail as a result of a lack of
4:28 am
supervision. a prom party, graduation parties, halloween party, "playboy" stripper parties, all kinds of parties. you have to be really careful and you need to be there if you are having a party. >> can parents set the rules of the house? >> let's talk about specific that's people can do. the releases and waivers, i like to the extent that yeah, you lay down the rules of what is going on. but make it clear, no booze. no drugs. no hooking up. straight up. those three policies if you get involved with any of those, we're going to put you out of the party. a search policy. it sounds terrible. but if you show up with drugs or alcohol and we find it we're putting you out. and we're also going to call the police. >> okay. what if you have a pool and there is a pool involved? do you need a lifeguard? >> you absolutely or two lifeguards. if you have 100 people you need two lifeguards. you need security other parents, you need chaperons.
4:29 am
>> what if you set the rules and someone shows up having had a drink or two or more than that what do do you? >> you have to call their parent or drive them home. do not allow them to drive. even if you didn't serve them the alcohol, do not allow them to leave your house. >> with that risk if you don't set the rules and the party is busted at your house? >> two risks. one is social host liability. that means you can be sued if something happens to the child there. number two, criminal liability. you can be criminally charged. the police may not pull you out of your home in the middle of the night because they want you to look after the 40 children that are still there. but come morning, they will come back with the handcuffs. this is a dangerous season. but a very happy season. so be careful and if we do things prunltly and reasonably set lists. but be aware. releases and waivers don't mean a thing at all. at all. all of us have an obligation to look after each other, especially 17 and 18-year-olds

rick nash a winner is anthony in new jersey. you'll be getting a book. that's what rick nash looks like. >> ask the question. >> there is no blurring the mind to suffer the slings and air rows of outrageous fortune. >> the answer to be or not to be is not to be. that's because one high school english teacher wants to say good-bye to shakespeare in the classroom. why? because he's way too white. writing in a "washington post," the high schoolteacher says what i worry about is that as long as we continue to cling to one white man's view of life as he lived a long time ago, we perhaps promote the notion that our other cultural perspectives
4:52 am
are less important. so should we ban this book? our next guest says that's absolutely ridiculous. like you're saying at home. matthew truzdale is an english teacher in piedmont south carolina. what is wrong with banning shakespeare? after all, he died. >> he did die. my feeling about whether we should ban or not ban shakespeare really has nothing to do with his skin color. i think shakespeare should be taught because of the relevance of his words and the power of his stories that still resonate with i would say students of all occur tours and backgrounds today. >> for english speaking people i believe he's considered the best writer ever. i don't think that was beyond dispute. what do you say to this teacher who says the kid can't relate to him. >> i think they can relate to him. i think that anybody can relate to shakespeare. i think the mirror that he held up to human nature in his time we can still hold that same mirror up today and see
4:53 am
ourselves. and i would even say that if students couldn't relate to him, that wouldn't be a bad thing either because, you know, my feeling as an english teacher is we should be reading text that challenge us and make us be kind of beyond ourselves. so to me it's a win-win for the kids that they get to read shakespeare. >> does it worry you that someone involved in education would have this view? it's okay not to like a writer. but for a classic writer like shakespeare, to focus on the color of his skin the fact he's from britain zshgs that does that worry you? >> it only worries me in that i feel like her kid are going to get, you know be deprived of the opportunity to read his work. the part about whether he's relevant or not that, concerns me. he certainly is relevant today. i taught shakespeare to students of all ages and ethnic backgrounds and i've had success with it. and so i would say that the tradition of shakespeare should
4:54 am
stay in the classroom. >> it bother mez that teachers are looking at students and seeing skin color and not kids that hopefully aspire to be well read knowledgeable adults. >> well and i would agree with that. i would say that, you know i would hate for us to look at shakespeare and reduce him to a skin color as well. one of the books, you know one of the points she tried to make is she wants to teach the african oral tradition in her class which i'm all for. and if i was, you know knowledgeable in that, i might try to teach that as well. i would not teach it to the exclusion of shakespeare. >> matt, finally, you know what has to happen for shakespeare to be related to a high school student? you have to teach. you have to understand. you have to look at the language of that day, understand the themes of that book of that play and then relay it to today. because the themes still hold up to day if you do this thing called teach and translate, correct? >> that is correct. and one thing i was thinking about was that when i do shakespeare? class, you can't just give a
4:55 am
child a book and say shears shakespeare shakespeare, go and expect them to get anything out of it. you have to prepare them for it and let them know what is coming and try to draw connections. let them see that they are in that book and they can find themselves in shakespeare's words. >> and kmued this morning, the way you explained yourself i can tell that your students are very lucky students. thank you so much matt. >> thank you very much. >> all right. coming up straight ahead, moments ago the white naacp leader who resigned after lying about her race speaks out. up next her brother here live to react. and access denied. a reporter set to cover hillary clinton's campaign shown the door even though he was invited. what's going on here? well he tweeted out something perhaps they didn't like ♪ i don't have to say a word ♪ to folks out there whose diabetic nerve pain... shoots and burns its way into your day, i hear you. to everyone with this pain that makes ordinary tasks

transracial then when the opposition and some of the human rights work i was doing came forward and started the next newspaper article identified me as being a bi-racial woman and then the next article when they were actually burglaries nooses et cetera was this is happening to a black woman. i never corrected -- >> why didn't you correct it? you knew it wasn't true. >> well because it's more complex than you know, being true or false. >> she says it is complex. is it complex or is she lying? >> i don't think there is anything complex about truth, what is true and what is not true. i don't really know how she is saying that it's really that complex or that confusing. it's really not. i mean either you're -- i think she's making it into a bigger issue or a different issue than it actually s it comes down to her integrity and what she's actually doing is she's not
5:06 am
saying she had originally what she was saying is she was not identify herself as being black now. she originally did say she was always black. and that's not really not. she is trying to say that she has been correct them. what she actually did is she go out of her way to actually say. that and she easily could have said i'm maybe considered black now but i was not born black because then she started making up all the stories about living in a tepee and all this stuff. >> she made that up before. your parents were on yesterday. what has this done to your family? >> it's been really surprising. first time they've ever been in the news and the entire country knows the family story. >> you mentioned the brown crayons. she talked about that this morning. here she is. >> i really don't see why they're in such a rush to whitewash some of the work that i have done. and who i am and how i've
5:07 am
identified. and this goes back to a very early age with myself identification with the black experience. as a very young child. >> whether did it start? >> i would say about 5 years old. >> you began identifying yourself as african-american? >> i was drawing -- >> do you remember that? >> no it's not true. she -- she's only done all this within the last i'd say three or four years. growing up it was like when she was in high school is when she got interested in african-american studies. but she actually never considered herself black or tried to say she should have been born black or anything else and the crayons and all. >> this is your sister. so if you could say anything to her today, chances are she might be listening. what do you say to her? what is your message? >> i'd say, honestly, as a lyliy lyly
5:08 am
is a really important characteristic. she should be honest and also to not be so angry toward the family. i mean she's got some really built up anger against the family for some really confusing reason. >> she said they won't talk to her. >> haven't talked to her since 2012. >> is that when she told you don't blow the cover? >> yes. >> what was the context? mainly because me and my younger brother were there visiting over in coeur d'alene when she was living there. she was telling -- they were telling me not to till anybody over there about her family from montana or her real appearance. she was saying that her dad was over in -- over there in coeur d'alene with her. >> she would show a picture of an african-american man who was not her father. >> oh, yeah. i never saw a picture until now. i didn't know who she was talking b. >> he is a friend in idaho. >> yes, one person she used to
5:09 am
work with over there. and i was kind of surprised about that because i didn't actually know exactly wloit was until this past week she was trying to pass off as her real father. >> she said he's my dad. not everybody man can be a dad. he's my father. how hard is that to hear about your father? >> well she changed from her original statement. her original statement was was about saying that wasn't her father much it's one thing to say someone is your faejther figure. there are multiple people that can be father figures. i don't know i don't know why she would say that. >> did you -- you were familiar with this -- whether she went to howard university. she's white. it's a historically black university. she sued the school for discrimination because she said they wouldn't hire her because she was white. and eventually they settled and -- they didn't settle they threw the case out. and they just said there is no discrimination.
5:10 am
what was going on in her life at that point? >> well i think that was around the time when she was first married. i think that is around the same time in 2000. and she was just trying to finish up school and stuff, art. she was an art major. and i actually don't -- i don't really know why exactly they didn't do. that the main reason i think is because she was actually white and they thought she was white when she applied. >> sure. >> are you adapting? >> yes. >> how does it make you feel that this is your parents biological daughter who is white, does it make a difference? >> not really. the only thing i was saying is i do think that when she was saying she actually knew was, knew what it was like to grow up as a black child and say she was black her entire life i don't
5:11 am
think personally it would be -- i really didn't have a problem it with. i'm thinking that other people probably would because she obviously doesn't know what it's like to grow up black in the world. i mean she never been black until the past four years. it's not like she had to grow up with the racism. >> that bothers you? >> yeah. >> she's been brutal on your parents. what is that like? tell me about the parents you know and tell me about the ones she described. >> well she exaggerated a lot of things and also lied about a lot of things. >> like what? >> like the whole abuse and other stuff and trying to say like her -- she was grew up like a slave. >> lived in a tepee. >> yeah. >> is any of that true? >> no especially that tepee thing. that was actually my parents when they were first married for a month. i don't know why she would even -- like i don't know how that would help her cause to say she was born in a tepee. >> i want to ask you about this. she says her son knew her as a
5:12 am
culturally black. >> your two sons eye day why and franklin are in the studio. >> they are. >> if i were to ask them if you're a black woman or a caucasian woman, how do you think they'd answer? >> well i actually was talking to one of my sons yesterday and he said mom, racially you're human. and culturally you're black. >> what do you think about that? >> well that's really different than what she has been saying. she originally didn't say that. she said she was biologically black. that's a different statement. i don't know. i guess she could be culturally black. it's one thing to be culturally black and say you're biologically black. but, i mean -- >> ultimately why did she do this? >> there are multiple possibilities. we don't know for sure. some people are saying
5:13 am
attention. some people are saying she thought i was going to help her cause. i think she went about it the wrong way. >> why are you here? why was it important for you to be here? >> because i actually did grow up with her. i've known her my entire life. and she actually did tell me about what she was doing before all of this actually -- about two years before she -- four years before any of this actually anybody else found out about this. >> what did she say? >> admitting to what she was doing and saying that she was going to want to be like -- want everybody to think she was black. like the whole birth family thing over there. yeah. >> what a storey. ezra thank you very much for coming to new york city and joining us from your home out in montana. >> thank you. >> we thank you very much. >> we appreciate that. >> thank you. well we just heard from

5:19 am

self worth of who i was. that's the inspirational message here. >> you tell a story about getting fired and whether they told you were out, they said don't worry, you have a husband. >> week after i got married, i got fired. that's what they said to me. >> good news and bad news. >> hardest year of my life to be honest. i have great pain and empathy for people who lost their jobs. i give advice about what i did to get back on my feet. >> all right. first a light note. i want to read the part i did not know is how you met casey. so you're out an a date with him. he's a very successful good looking great guy. you're on a date with him and handsome. he said you remind me of somebody famous. so he does look like j.f.k. jr. that wasn't your guess was it? >> some people told him that because of his hair before. i said you're so funny. i am having such a fantastic time. you remind me exact live the famous funny actor jim carrey. and the look on his face was like -- i went in the bathroom and called my friend who set us up on the blind date.

5:33 am
and this goes back to a very early age with myself
5:34 am
identification with the black experience. as a very young child. >> when did it start? >> i would say about 5 years old. >> you began identifying yourself as african-american? >> i was drawing self-portraits with the brown crayon. >> we just talked to her brother and he said that's not true. there you see the former spokane, washington naacp leader rachael dolezal breaking her silence after admitting she was lying about her race. joining us is a psychiatrist. what do you make of this? >> good morning. >> tangled story she has been telling. >> well what i make of it is she's asserting that her i had "is that of a black woman despite all biological facts to the contrary including the fact that she was born to caucasian parents. and so here's what i make of it. i warn right, i warn during the
5:35 am
caitlyn jenner experience that it would pave the way for people to pave the way for gender identity and also other kidz of identity including racial identity. we have rushed into this steve. we rushed into letting people say i feel therefore i am. and we have done it without a lot of psychological study and without clear facts to guide us. this is a threat a massive threat to our children. some of whom may claim because they are troubled i might say bs others might say because they're actually black when they're biologically white or actually biologically black and say they're white, either way. i would say that that would be confusion. others will say, no they know who they are. they are in the wrong bodies. and they're going to end up in big trouble with the wrong
5:36 am
doctors. >> i'm a little confused. what do you mean wrong doctors? it is that big of a deal? let them do it. >> it's a huge deal. number one, i don't think there is data to support that people are born into the wrong skin color. i don't think that we have that data. and the idea that i would be pressured by doctors at an academic medical senter to support the notion of my 10-year-old being tattooed head to foot black because he or she feels that that's her identity is a direct parallel to what is happening today at children's hospital in boston where kids are getting injected with hormones because they say i'm a girl not a boy. >> let me ask you this. this is one sound bite. i love your reaction. rachael said she was offended by the black faith comparison and
5:37 am
then your analysis. watch. >> i also don't, as some of the critics have put on black face as a performance. i have a huge issue with black faith. this is not some freak birth of a nation mockery black faith performance. this is on a very real connected level, how i've actually had to go there with the experience. >> so her experience here. take it to the next place where how it would affect her children. she says she identifies as culturally black. so how does it affect them psychologically? >> well listen the sad truth is she may not be lying. that is sad. because to my mind that would indicate a complete separation from fact and reality. how does it affect her children? well they're going to be asked to support their mom because they love their mom. but more than that they're going to be asked to share her vision that the truth, that
5:38 am
facts, that reality don't define what you say you are or how you conduct yourself in the world. and i'm telling you, it doesn't have to just be race or gender that people assert and then change by tattooing or surgery. it can be age. people saying they were born at a particular time but they're really much older or much younger. it can be species, people saying i know i look human to you, but i'm not. i'm something different. and don't discriminate against me because i wear a zebra outfit. >> a lot going on there. >> and a tail grafted on to the lower part of my back. there are surgeons in america who will do that. you know how i know? because they're doing it could kids right now. with surgeries that change their gender. >> but the truth is simple. thank you for that. >> all right. thank you. switching gears. politics. the battle between democratic
5:39 am
presidential candidate hillary clinton and the president intensefied after her campaign blocked a pool reporter from multiple events yesterday because he probably didn't like the coverage that the newspaper gave of hillary. >> that reporter is the united states political editor at daily mail. he joined us earlier today. >> they don't get to pick and choose who covers them. that's the kind of thing that we see from other countries, you know that we don't want to be like. it's a very slippery slope. everybody understands if they can mess with one of us they can mess with all of us. faen this is the level of accessibility and transparency that mrs. clinton is exhibiting at this point in the campaign imagine what the west wing will be like in 2017 if she wins. >> great point. how much damage could this do to her campaign going forward if any? here to discuss, radio talk show host maybe the best in the business author of the brand new book oit queen," the epic ambition of hillary and coming of a second clinton era. the news of the day and how it plays into the theme of your book. >> thank you.
5:40 am
>> the former secretary of state for actsing like a queen whether the queen drops. you know i didn't know she was going to announce her campaign this weekend when the green came out. i'm happy about. that but then to bar, like regally, you should not come on my press pool. thank you, mrs. clinton. i appreciate it. >> a media mote around her. is she going to get away with it? >> yes, except for people like you. i'm glad you had him on this morning. by the way, terrific interview with ezra. that is going to be the take away for the day. i absolutely believe that giving attention to the press pool thing yesterday is a hole in her dike. >> what do you mean by that? >> other people she'll never be able to do it again. when they tried to cut fox out of the white house press office in 2009 the media came together and pushed back and that ended that. so i think this will be the same. >> and back then it was because they excluded us from the pool stuff. we're not going to work with fox. then all the other networks said wait a minute if you don't work with fox, we're not going to work with you.
5:41 am
and it's the same thing yesterday. all the print outlets including "the new york times," "washington post," they all said you can't do that mrs. clinton. >> right. kudos to all of them for rallying around the idea. she does act regally. she does want to have distance from the press. she didn't want to take questions. she took ten minutes of questions in iowa yesterday. now in "the queen," i channel my inner axelrod. she ought to try to do that for as long as she k it's our job to not let her do that. >> in your mind, who beat her? >> there are many who can beat her. i said on adam's show she is the prohibitive favorite. she is a 10 to 11 favorite. jeb bush is 7-2 and marco rubio 7-1. but she's not unbeatable. we need to pitch a perfect game or a no-hitter to beater. we be republicans. i'm the conservative in the debate. i don't think we lost. i think they set up this the way it is to try and minimize the knife fight among republicans over the next --
5:42 am
>> look at hillary clinton. she does not have the talent of barack obama or her husband tazhas a campaigner someone to beibility r interviewed or debated. do you agree that? >> she is a dreadful candidate but she's got money, a machine, she has moef of the media at her back. >> "the new york times" went after her. they were on the same beat with the "washington post" with peter's book. >> early. >> early on. early on they're doing it to immunize her. i expect she'll do your show. >> she has in the past. >> i advise her to come here and come and do o'reilly early so she gets immunized and then never to see you again until november. >> machiavelli wrote "the prince" and hugh hewitt has written "the queen." it's a great book. >> congratulations. >> thank you. always a pleasure. thank you. >> thank you very much. >> all right. coming up on this tuesday, teenagers attacked by a shark are alive thanks to quick thinking. so what you would do if you came face-to-face with a shark?
5:43 am
would you survive? you would be able to if you knew what to do. that's next. >> let's hope we don't have to worry about that. intense competition between dads and kids in honor of father's day. we're telling you and your child to spartan up on our spartan racecourse made just for the elite people called children.
5:44 am
5:45 am
5:46 am
back now with a fox news alert. a 13-year-old girl and a 16-year-old boy both losing arms on sunday in separate shark attacks on the same beach in north carolina. those attacks occurring within two hours of one another. so just how common are shark attacks? should you be afraid to send your kids into the water? joining us now is the founder and president of the shark research committee and director of the global shark attack file.
5:47 am
thanks for being here. >> thank you. >> so tell us about that. should parents be afraid to put their kids in the water right now? given that we reported on so many of these shark attack stories recently. >> no. not really. sharks are going to be found in areas where you find their prey. unfortunately, sharks move up and down the coast, pacific and atlantic. and you're going to find them in areas where their prey is. and the prey will be there because of maybe the fish are spawning. maybe they're coming in to feed on plankton blooms. >> but there have been reports that there was chumming in the area close to the fishing pier where people were out there fishing. do you think that's what potentially attracted the sharks to that area? >> no i don't. we have piers along the pacific coast here in los angeles area. we have a number of piers. people fish from them. and we still have sharks in
5:48 am
other areas where we don't have those piers. but those are areas where we have large fish assemblages that the sharks are coming in to feed on. >> isn't it odd we had two shark attacks in the span of just an hour and a half. it is the same shark that attacked these two people or -- i mean this is scary to a lot of parents out there who are headed to the beach. >> first of all, it's highly unlikely it was the same shark. and the close proximity in time that these two events took place although it's unique it's not that unusual. we had two shark attacks last year up in sant why barbara county, 30 minutes apart and about 100 yards apart. probably by the same shark those two attacks. >> goodness. >> in this case because -- >> one of the things that is being credited for having saved those children's lives is the quick response from people there on the beach.
5:49 am
also 911 called so quickly. if something should happen if someone is in the water and should experience a shark attack or witness one, what is your advice? what is the best way to handle that? >> well the first thing is of course get them to shore. also you should have something to help control bleeding. especially if you have arterial bleeding. that's when you could use a leg leash on a surfboard to tie it off. that's what a couple of the quick responders did with those two unfortunate victims. they controlled the bleeding which helped save their lives. >> certainly. sir, thank you so much for joining us and good advice for parents out there to know what to expect. thank you so much. have a great day now. >> you, too. thank you. >> coming up a spartan race like no other. kids and their parents squaring off on the obstacle course just in time for father's day. we're out on the plaza with. that first, let's check in with a look at what is coming up at the top of the hour. good morning, martha.
