tree farm right here on our plaza. >> yesterday we were helping you figure out the lights. today we're going to help you pick out the perfect tree. and also i decked out my home because i'm a total nerd with some of these connected home options so you can literally turn on your christmas lights with your cell phone. we're going to show you how to do that. >> could you even coordinate it to christmas carols, too. >> you can. lights have different colors and you can use your phone and just say siri turn on my christmas lights. >> you don't have a candle hanging on your christmas tree. >> no, not like the 1800s and charles dickens. good morning, everyone. >> good morning. great to have you with us. we're going to start with this fox news alert on your sunday morning. chilling new details emerging in the colorado springs shooting investigation. a gunman's past coming to light. >> 57-year-old done ert dear, the man accused of storming a planned parenthood clinic, killing three including a police officer is now being described, perhaps not surprisingly as a loner and a drifter. >> dear lived off the grid without electricity or running water. you can see he had two shacks in
3:03 am
north carolina and then this remote rv is where he lived in colorado. look at that. which police combed through yesterday to try to get some clues. >> and according to reports, dear had a history of prior arrests. some saying he was the type of guy you had to watch out for. >> kind of, just you know, not really -- he didn't say -- i didn't talk to him so he didn't say much. and he didn't -- you know, he wasn't outgoing where he'd come out and talk to you. so he kind of stayed to hisself. i stayed to myself. >> police are still searching for a motive in that shooting. >> dear remains in jail this morning without bail. his first court appearance is scheduled for tomorrow. of course a lot of people this morning remembering garrett swasey the police officer who was gunned down in all of this. he was a famed ice skater. so he had a large community of friends in the ice skating community in colorado. his friends couldn't believe it when they started to see his images pop up on television.
3:04 am
said, you know, the guy just lived ten minutes down the street. he was the sweetest guy. he would go out of his way to help people. and to see him gunned down in all of this was tragedy. >> yeah. also, a man of faith. and, in fact, he was a copastor of hope chapel in colorado springs. here his fellow co-pastor now. >> he loved this young man garrett swasey, and garrett swasey in turn loved him. that's how a man can lay down his life for others. the thing i know go garrett is, and that he would want you to know, is that jesus christ was his lord and savior. jesus christ meant everything to him. jesus christ came and laid down his life, substituted his life, so that we could be forgiven of our sins.
3:05 am
and accept, on our behalf, his forgiveness of our sins, accept that, and be drawn back in to relationship with our heavenly father. and that's why garrett lived. >> boy is that sad. >> also at the university of colorado, colorado springs, they held moments of silence before their basketball games, and also a prayer vigil. also there is a you caring page that's been set up by a friend of the family for the children's education. he leaves behind two children waking up without a father. >> i hope that video gets wide play. you're seeing politicians this morning trying to use this tragedy to their own advantage, trying to divide the country, claiming it's a crime against this group or that group and you look at this and realize this crime was a crime against people of every part of the spectrum. >> right. he was pro-life. he would -- and the figure skating community coming out with a statement this morning, they said the figure skating community mourns the trackic loss of officer garrett swasey, a former junior ice dance champion. garrett is remembered as a kind

3:07 am
north but we're going to see some in oklahoma. video out of yukon, oklahoma, just to the west of oklahoma city. that gives you an idea that's just ice. water hits the surface and itfr everything. it's kind of a beautiful sight. and an incredibly destructive sight that's going to be really expensive disaster for a lot of oklahoma by the time this is done. you will warm up this week into the 50s. it will get better. but it's going to take a couple of days. today we're still going to see more icing across parts of kansas, and across missouri and iowa, and then we're going to watch this storm develop into a bit of a snowstorm. and we also have snow advisories in effect across parts of nebraska and up through minnesota, by the time we get to tuesday, some of those area, guy, looking at over a foot of snow. so some areas certainly -- >> whoa. >> winter already. >> welcome to winter. >> thanks, rick. other stories making headlines, fox news alert, a police officer in pennsylvania shot and killed and now a suspect is in custody. 31-year-old ray schettsler was
3:08 am
arrested after a six hour man hunt. he ran into the woods after the shooting. saint claire township police officer lloyd lead died at the hospital. he was a 25 year veteran. turkey's president says russia was quote playing with fire, but that didn't slow vladimir putin down. new sanctions just issued against turkey. after they claim to have shot down this russian jet over its airspace, then shot and killed the pilot who parachuted down. today that pilot's body is now in turkey and will be turned over to russia. flights between the two countries have stopped as russian travel agencies have been banned from selling trips to turkey. there's also a new hiring ban on turkish nationals. and the fight is on for college football team trying to get a spot in the playoffs. a last-second 45-yard field goal helped push stanford past notre dame 38-36. the cardinals stayed alive in the college football playoff chase while eliminating the irish. michigan-ohio state bounced back
3:09 am
from its only loss of the season by trampling the waffle reasons 42-13. michigan trailed the entire game and only pulled within four points twice in the first half. and finally, oklahoma, prushing oklahoma state in a 58-23 route. to come your 2015 big twelve champion. the sooners now just hoping their name gets called by the college football playoff selection committee. and those are your headlines. >> ben carson in jordan this morning. the kingdom of jordan, touring refugee camps there. in an effort to enhance his foreign policy credentials. two takeaways from this trip, according to the carson camp. one, there is more room in those refugee camps. mr. carson says, dr. carson, says, and second he said, quote, i did not detect any great desire for them to come to the united states. you've got these refugee camps that aren't complete ply full. all you need is the resources to be able to run them. why you need to create something else before they can come back home. >> he says, look, i'm not into
3:10 am
spending and wasting money on large-scale, risky operations when we don't need to. if we can find the clearest path, the occam's razor path to the solution, we have tent cities set up, they're not full, why can't we utilize them? >> politically he's softening his rhetoric a little bit. last week you remember he likened syrian refugees to handling rabid dogs and changed that and said we just want to make sure we don't get any bad apples here in the united states. he also said while he was there that he's not seeing any sort f of -- he's not feeling like the vetting process of these refugees is as stringent as -- as it would need to be. >> this seems like it might diminish the campaign rather than enhance it. jordan i believe the majority of people in jordan are refugees and have been for many decades now. probably not room for a lot more. and second, the idea that they would rather stay in jordan, and refugee camps, than move to the united states. maybe that's true. i kind of doubt that. >> is it anecdotal? he's asked a few individuals?
3:11 am
i mean if they could come to the united states. i don't know who he's talking to exactly. we'll get more from the karszen camp. but it's on lockdown, jordanian security, very tight jordanian security as he's going through the camp. tale of two campaigns. ben carson over in jordan touring these refugees camps and then you have donald trump down in florida, in sarasota, where people were lined up for as long as five blocks at the robarts arena down there. people lined up around the block to get in to see donald trump. >> quite the spectacle. over 12,000 people showed up to robarts arena there and there was also an actual elephant there reportedly walking around outside the grounds. >> wait, not a man in an elephant costume? >> no, like a legit elephant and it's not just because of obvious mascot reasons but apparently florida has a long history with the ringling brothers. >> of course it's their winter camp in air is tote to. how is it working for donald trump? well, let you hear him sum it up. watch this. >> we're leading in florida
3:12 am
against a sitting senator. right? sitting senator. thank you. thank you. but think of this. we're leading against an ex-governor. bush. by the way, because we have so many things to talk about i just want to say it up front, right now, second amendment, 100%. remember it. remember it. remember it. common core, out. common core, out. second amendment, up, up, up. >> there's the basics -- >> second amendment, 100%, common core, out. that's the crispest summation i think i've heard in a long time. >> people were lined up around five blocks. let us know, send us your pictures this morning because we've got a lot of pictures from twitter of people who were actually at the event yesterday

[ whistle blowing ]
3:17 am
>> the retired police officer claims he was let go after organizing a protest against the black lives matter movement. >> last month he stood outside a dunkin' donuts where a worker had written black lives matter on a police officer's cup, and he says that all he wanted was an apology but the protest has now apparently cost him his dancing cop gig in providence. >> but there's a brand-new update to this story this morning. joining us now is that rhode island police officer, tony lapore. nice to see you this morning. welcome to the show. >> good morning. thank you for inviting me. >> absolutely. you're smiling despite all of this. do you have some new news this morning you want to share with us? >> oh, yes. i will be joining east providence, and doing my traffic thing december 10th to the 24th. and always on the 24th i wear my santa hat and pass out candy canes for the kids. >> so, your fans will still be able to see you, just in a
3:18 am
different town you're saying now. >> oh, yeah. it's only across the water. all you got to do is take -- excuse me. >> well i just wanted to get your response to what the providence police department had said about why you did lose your job there. they said mr. lepore was not authorized to speak on behalf of the providence police department and his actions were, in my judgment, a disservice to the department, and to members of the providence community. what was your mission in organizing this demonstration? >> well, because many of the police officers at the time, if you'll remember that week, that several of them were in different towns were not served or there were problems with all police officers that went in to different restaurants. i think it was five different restaurants that week. and, i boycotted dunkin' donuts. i -- on my facebook. i said i wasn't going to drink coffee there anymore. well, i have 3,000 followers on
3:19 am
facebook. they all just said the same. so, we boycotted dunkin' donuts. it got through the news and it ended up, i ended up making a statement that i would like them both to apologize to the police officer. they never did. for five days they never did. so we decided to picket dunkin' donuts. it was on a saturday. >> yeah, but this all, of course, cost you your job as a result of it. >> well, it was one of my jobs. at the profs dense -- i knew that would have happened. but my mission was to have all the street cops, because i worry about the street cops, and black lives matter is a organization that has some individuals, just some individuals, that advocate harm to police officers. and that was my concern.
3:20 am
one more thing, since we picketed, and got a written apology from the owner, and the girl was never fired, she was placed in another restaurant other than dunkin' donuts, which was fine with us. but since then we haven't had one incident, in rhode island, or in the united states. and many of the states followed suit, and they picketed. police officers picketed off duty. and they were not fired. >> so you lost your job. but good news this morning, a silver lining to all this, tony you're going to be back in the east providence police department for the holidays out there directing traffic and doing what you love. >> and what everybody loves to see you do. tony lepore, thank you so much for your time today. >> merry christmas. >> thank you. >> be santa. >> thank you. coming up here on the show one police chief says civilians
3:21 am
may have to defend themselves during a terror attack. >> if you're in a position to try to take the gunman down, it's the best option for saving lives before police can get there. >> so what -- what do you need to know? a retired marine shows us how to stop a shooter. what if one piece of kale could protect you from diabetes? what if one sit-up could prevent heart disease? one. wishful thinking, right? but there is one step you can take to help prevent another serious disease.
3:22 am
pneumococcal pneumonia. if you are 50 or older, one dose of the prevnar 13® vaccine can help protect you from pneumococcal pneumonia, an illness that can cause coughing, chest pain, difficulty breathing, and may even put you in the hospital. even if you have already been vaccinated with another pneumonia vaccine, prevnar 13® may help provide additional protection. prevnar 13® is used in adults 50 and older to help prevent infections from 13 strains of the bacteria that cause pneumococcal pneumonia. you should not receive prevnar 13® if you have had a severe allergic reaction to the vaccine or its ingredients. if you have a weakened immune system, you may have a lower response to the vaccine. common side effects were pain, redness or swelling at the injection site, limited arm movement, fatigue, headache, muscle or joint pain, less appetite, chills, or rash. get this one done. ask your doctor or pharmacist about prevnar 13® today. we danced in a german dance group. i wore lederhosen.man. when i first got on ancestry i was really surprised that i wasn't finding all of these germans in my tree. i decided to have my dna tested through ancestry dna.
3:23 am
the big surprise was we're not german at all. 52% of my dna comes from scotland and ireland. so, i traded in my lederhosen for a kilt. ancestry has many paths to discovering your story. get started for free at ancestry.com.
3:24 am
welcome back. there was a time when the police discouraged citizens from taking action if they witnessed a crime. but with terror attacks like the one we just saw in paris becoming a growing threat. even the chief of police of washington, d.c. says civilians may ultimately have to step up and defend themselves. >> if you're in a position to try and take the gunman down, to take the gunman out, it's the best option for saving lives before police can get there. >> so if you're a witness to an active shooter, what would you do to prevent that shooting from
3:25 am
continuing? a former marine special missions officer and ceo of the combative, one of the toughest people i know, great to see you this morning. so let's go through a series of scenarios and you tell us what we ought to do if we witness them. so if you see an attack begin, and you're at some distance from the attacker, what's your option? >> well, the first thing is, you know, gunfire is omni directional. so it's identifying, try and identify where it's coming from, but if you're far enough away that you can move out of the line of sight, just do that. because turning and attacking doesn't make sense. >> right. if you're midrange from the attacker? >> if you're midrange from the attacker, caught in that middle ground, basically seek cover as quickly as possible. cover is defined by basically things that bullets won't pass through then find the next position of cover, move to that and continue to do that fl you're out of ramg. >> and if you find yourself within close proximity? >> that's the tough one, tucker. obviously whether you've been trained to fight, whether you thought you'd have to fight or
3:26 am
whether you just have to, the bottom line is to try to get control of the weapon. and you want to do that by moving to the back of the forearm and behind the muzzle. after that, nothing really matters. you've just got to kind of hang onto that weapon as much as you can. obviously other people in the area would help you. you know, once a weapon is out of play people are encouraged. >> so thanks to some terror laws there are a number of civilians who are armed and it's possible you might be one of them, find yourself in close proximity to an attacker. what do you do then? >> also a difficult situation because most people don't train for that. again you have to almost approach that like you do on a plane. if the plane started to crash you'd put your mask on first, and then assist others. well, if you're the only one that has a firearm, move to cover to protect yourself first. get stable, get good shots off, and aim for the chest and the pelvic girdle. >> what's the pelvic girdle? >> basically if you shoot somebody in the pelvic gurdle you're going to get an ambulatory stop. they're not going to be able to
3:27 am
support themselves so they fall down. >> if you're at midrange or long range and you're armed? >> again you've got to get a stable shooting situation. you know it's not like you're going to just draw your weapon and start firing. it's not a competition match. so you want to stay behind cover, because once you've introduced a firearm into the mix, obviously you'll be targeted. the other thing that's of concern here is, once the event's over, if you've reconciled it you've got to make sure that i understand when police do arrive, they won't be able to sort through immediately what just happened. so you're at risk. and you've got to be able to make sure that they're not going to engage you, thinking that you're the shooter. >> that's exactly right. if there's blood on the ground, you've got a gun in your hand you're in trouble potentially. >> exactly. >> what do you think of this advice from the police chief of washington, d.c.? you never hear police officers say this, that you should get involved potentially. do you think that's good advice? >> i think there's two things, tucker. i think that basically this is predicated on her being privy to intelligence. she's not operating in a vacuum. she's privy to the presence of
3:28 am
these kinds of threats, and she's also a smart woman and understands that with a police response time of five to seven minutes and getting ready to move in, most of these killings happen within ten minutes. she's smart enough to understand that in order to prevent mass casualties, ordinary people may have to take extraordinary action. >> yes. sounds like good advice to me. great to see you this morning. thanks for joining us. >> you bet, tucker. >> still ahead, how do you defeat isis? why don't you hold a climate change conference? that might do it. >> what a powerful rebuke to the terrorists it will be when the world stands as one as shows that we will not be deterred from building a better future for our children. >> isis, running scared from our green energy plans. president obama in paris today to talk climate change. we'll tell you what he said. and wouldn't it be great to control your christmas lights from your phone? wow. flying cars actually, you can control your christmas lights
3:29 am
from your phone and we're going to tell you how. stay tuned.

♪ i built my business with passion. but i keep it growing by making every dollar count. that's why i have the spark cash card from capital one. i earn unlimited 2% cash back on everything i buy for my studio. ♪ and that unlimited 2% cash back from spark means thousands of dollars each year going back into my business... that's huge for my bottom line. what's in your wallet? welcome back. president obama will be heading to paris later this morning to join nearly 150 world leaders for the start of the u.n. climate change summit. but questions about who will pay for the changes are rising. the gop has already vowed not to fund it.
3:33 am
>> molly joins us live from washington, d.c. with more. >> good morning. this is a deal that the president wants. he wants this to be part of his legacy. some type of international agreement on climate change. but senate republicans insist that he has to run any kind of deal by them before committing the u.s. economy or taxpayer dollars to this project. the president will leave later today to join other world leaders for global warming talks outside of paris. he already has pledged $3 billion to the united nations green climate fund. that's money that will go to developing nations to help them reduce carbon emissions. but some senators say he's not going to get that money out of congress if he doesn't come to the senate to get approval for any deal. wyoming gop senator john barrasso told "the wall street journal" last week in an editorial, quote, other countries will gladly support a deal that transfers money to them, while weakening the u.s. they are sure to praise president obama's leadership in the process. the question is whether the
3:34 am
american people, and congress, will allow such a deal to slip by, or whether they will stand up and be heard. but the obama administration says the green climate fund, and u.s. financial support for it, is a quote, clear priority for the president. and the president said last week that this deal will send a strong message to terrorists. >> i will be joining president hollande and world leaders in paris for the global climate conference. what a powerful rebuke to the terrorists it will be when the world stands as one and shows that we will not be deterred from building a better future for our children. >> democratic senator joe manchin from the coal producing state of west virginia also is urging the president to allow the senate to, quote, exercise its constitutional role to approve any agreement that comes from this meeting. back to you in all new york.
3:35 am
>> molly, thank you so much. these power producing states are throwing their hands up in the air going, this is going to hurt the economy and hurt jobs and who's going to pay for it? >> any normal person, this is not science, there's no proof this human activity causes climate change. no scientist who will say with a straight face that's true and yet they're claiming it's true and they're claiming once isis sees our solar panels they'll surrender. it's insane. >> the debate does still rage on about that. no doubt it seems the president's priorities are out of whack when he's more concerned about solar panels than he is about fighting off isis. >> but i do get the president's message that, look, we're not going to be deterred. we have this conference planned all these leaders are coming together, the terrorists aren't going to shake our schedule. >> and that's true. >> how about -- this is like -- but this point is, our commitment to green energy shows that we're better than them? or something like that? at its core, this is not science. it is theology. there is no proof that human behavior causes climate change. period. >> and yet bernie sanders built
3:36 am
his whole campaign about this. >> it may cause climate change. i don't know. but to say you know when you don't is a lie. that's my only point. >> 36 minutes after the hour. some other stories we're following for you now. this making headlines, a fox news alert, moments ago pope francis arriving in the central african republic for the last leg of his african tour. tight security surrounding the pontiff as he's brought to a country torn apart by war between christians and muslims. he hopes to preach a message of pes before the country holds elections next month. a strange and dangerous discovery in san francisco. spiked baseball bats have been found chained to poles throughout the city. police say they've been showing up on poles and parking meters since thanksgiving morning. at least 27 spiked bats have been found since then. those add-ons make the bats deadly weapons, of course, and creating them is actually a felony. former democrat allen grayson threatening a lawsuit if senator ted cruz wins the gop
3:37 am
nomination. why you say? grayson says he's unqualified because he was born in canada. listen. >> the constitution says natural-born americans. so now we're counting canadians as natural-born americans? how does that work? i'm waiting for the moment that he gets the nomination, and then i will file that beautiful lawsuit saying that he's unqualified for the job. ez ineligible. call me cruise zi but i think the president of america should be an american. >> cruz was born to an american mother in calgary which gives him citizenship. he moved here when he was 4. the supreme court has never actually ruled on the constitution's definition of quote natural-born citizen. and it's the selfie of the year. courtesy of our neighbors up north. michael and neil fletcher snapped this picture of a bald eagle they rescued from a trap in canada. they stumbled upon the stuck majestic bird while hunting in ontario. although it took awhile to get the trap open, they managed to untangle him, allowing him to fly back to freedom here in america.
3:38 am
those are your new headlines. rick, over to you. what's going on in the weather department? >> great shot. i'll tell you what, it has cooled down across a lot of the eastern sea board. obviously the big problem is going on across the central area of the country. take a look at the map. we have got chilly air across almost every place except for the far southeastern florida. that's kind of the one little warm sector. everybody else cold. 0 right now in denver. minus 2 in missoula. there's some cold air out there. the really big problem is this very slow moving ice storm across parts of texas and oklahoma and now you see that this morning in across areas of kansas and missouri and iowa. very destructive, some areas up to an inch and a quarter of ice, and we have a lot of power outages. it's going to be very expensive disaster, and obviously the fatalities there. snow will move in across parts of nebraska by the time we're done with this in the next couple of days, as with el. across the northeast today, get ready for a chilly one but mostly clear and down to the southeast the rain is will very

there it goes. >> wow. >> you can do it while you're driving. >> you could be in california and have your tree back home in pennsylvania. turn on my tree lights. boom. there you go. >> that is amazing. how does this work? >> and the smart plug is $39.99. >> not bad. >> you can hook them up to heaters in your house if you're out of town, coming home in 45 minutes, turn on the heater. anything like that. i rough this, and the eve weather. you know a lot of local airport data -- a lot of local weather data is gathered from your local airport. >> sure. >> and often you live ten miles away from the airport so it's not terribly accurate. eve rhetts you connect to the internet, put your weather device outside of your house, using siri you could say what is the temperature in my backyard and it would give you a precise temperature for your house. which is fantastic. so, it's completely different -- >> are you ever worried that siri is listening to you?
3:42 am
>> siri is in touch with my heart, tucker. so check out eve. they also got the indoor rooms, and windows devices so you can monitor going in and out of your house, the temperature and climate in there. so this is how you can get your home ready for the holidays. >> pretty unbelievable. moving at a faster pace than i can digest. >> two years ago we didn't have any of this. >> anna, inside to you. >> clayton you're going to have to help tucker and me with all that. 42 minutes after the hour. donald trump meets with 100 pastors tomorrow. one pastor who will be there tells us what questions he wants the donald to answer. plus an 8-year-old little girl tends handmade crosses to police officers around the nation. she says it's her mission to protect them and spread god's word. she's going to join us next with her inspirational story. i sure had a lot on my mind when i got out of the hospital
3:43 am
after a dvt blood clot. what about my family? my li'l buddy? and what if this happened again? i was given warfarin in the hospital but i wondered if this was the right treatment for me. then my doctor told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots, but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines.
3:44 am
tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you. boy: once upon a time, there was a nice house that lived with a family. one day, it started to rain and rain. water got inside and ruined everybody's everythings. the house thought she let the family down. but the family just didn't think a flood could ever happen. the reality is, floods do happen. protect what matters. get flood insurance. visit floodsmart.gov/flood to learn more.

3:47 am
you've handed out 6100 of them, which is an unbelievable number, to 90 departments in 30 states. and even the sidney, australia. can you read that letter for me, arianna? >> mm-hmm. sure. hello, my name is arianna, i am 8 years old. i made crosses to spread god's word. god's word is peace, kindness, love, joy, patience, hope and faith. i am also catholic, religious, loving and caring. i am a very happy girl. i hope my crosses inspire people to pray and love jesus. i also hope my crosses protect you. love, arianna. >> well, that is so sweet and special. mom, were you surprised by the reaction? seems like they've been welcomed with open arms when these first responders are getting the packages. because, crosses can be a target for the pc police sometimes, can't they? what do you think, mom?
3:48 am
>> yes. >> yeah, in the beginning when she mentioned wanting to do this i was kind of apprehensive because i know it's -- it speaks to religion, christianity, and it wouldn't speak to everybody. so, a little apprehensive. but when she said she wanted to do this i felt it was my job to, you know, try to make that happen for her and to see what kind of response we get and surprisingly, it's overwhelming gratitude. everybody seems very happy and excited, and is really embracing it. >> wow, what an amazing little girl. you say that it takes 17 to 20 minutes to make one tray of 42 crosses. and she makes three to four of those a day. so working really hard. how proud are you of your little girl? >> i couldn't be more proud of her. i mean she's the post compassionate, kind person you'll ever meet. and she's always been a very religious little girl. and when she said she wanted to set out to do this, and we went ahead and set out to do it and she accomplished it and succeeded i was just blown away. i couldn't be more proud of her. >> well, laura and arianna,
3:49 am
thank you so much for joining us on "fox & friends" weekend. and thank you for being bold in your faith. and you know what? since it's past turkey day we're almost into december, i know it's safe to say it to you, merry christmas. >> merry christmas. >> merry christmas. >> have a great day. >> 11 minutes before the top of the hour. remember this unlikely animal trio? two dogs and a pig who needed a family willing to adopt all three of them? well, they have found their forever homes. you'll meet the new owner next. my moderate to severe chronic plaque psoriasis made a simple trip to the grocery store anything but simple. so finally, i had an important conversation with my dermatologist about humira. he explained that humira works inside my body to target and help block a specific source of inflammation that contributes to my symptoms. in clinical trials, most adults saw 75% skin clearance.
3:50 am
and the majority were clear or almost clear in just 4 months. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers, including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. ask your dermatologist about humira. because with humira clearer skin is possible.
3:51 am
3:52 am
. welcome back.
3:53 am
remember, when we brought you this story last week about this unlikely try owe who needed a family willing to take all three of them in. there's a pig in there. >> they're bonded. they came in together, they sleep together and do everything together. to separate them would be devastati devastating. we're looking for somebody with pig experience. they're pretty easygoing and a lot of fun. they'll be a great addition to any family. >> turns outs they were. the three best friends found their home. joining us now is their new owner. also the owner of blue hound farm. so how is this working out? wimt well, it's working out pretty good. better than expect d. the dogs have fit in like a glove. the pig has figured out how to jump up on the bed. she's made herself quite at home. >> now they have the new home and new names. what did you rename them? >> well, we're still working on it. we're trying to figure out what their names might have been
3:54 am
before they were dropped at the rescue. we keep trying different names to see what they come to. i think in the last 24 hours, they each had about 20 different names. we still call them patty, paprika and pickles. but we've been calling this little guy max, mick, all different kinds of things. hoping we'll hit on a name that is familiar to them. it's not that we don't like the names. it's that we would like to find out who they were or who they are. >> do you think there's any chance the pig knows she's a pig or does she believe she's a dog? >> i think she knows she's a pig. >> will she fetch a stick for you? >> pardon? >> will she fetch a stick for you? >> not yet. we haven't gotten that far. it's only been 24 hours. the pig has an iq of a
3:55 am
4-year-old child. she's really -- it's been a hard adjustment. she's been sleeping a lot. >> why did you decide to bring them in? as we brought you this story last week, you found out they needed a home together. you got this link from a friend when they were dropped off at the shelter. why did you decide to step up? >> because, first of all, i have the room. i have a 70-acre farm. i have six potbelly pigs and two 13-year-old dogs. so there was plenty of room and plenty of love to give them. we decided to make a go of it. >> pardon the question. i have dogs but no pigs. what do pigs eat? >> they eat pig food. pelleted food that they eat. they do love other things, mashed potatoes, sweet potatoes, carrots. most of my pigs seem to be fonder of fruits than vegetables. >> sounds like our diet. >> they're smart. >> it's great to see you both.
3:56 am

4:03 am
boston and moved to colorado springs in the '90s to train at an ice skating fa sichlt. >> he's a skater and pretty good one. the community is shattered by this. they released a statement talking about what an incredibly loving man he was. >> scott, a co-pastor at hope chapel in colorado springs, a co-pastor with garrett by the way who spent part-time when he wasn't on duty pastoring at this church. he spoke out yesterday at a gathering. listen. >> jesus who loved this young man garrett swasey and garrett swasey, in turn, loved him. that's how a man can lay down his life for others. the thing i know about garrett is, and that he would want you to know, jesus christ was his lord and savior. jesus christ meant everything to
4:04 am
him. jesus christ came and laid down his life, substituted his life so that we could be forgiven of our sins and accept on our behalf his forgiveness of our sins, accept that and be drawn back into relationship with our heavenly father. and that's the life garrett lived. >> there it is. remember that next time you hear a politician trying to use this tragedy to put his political agenda as the president did. many people were killed in those attacks the other day. that was not just a single portion of the population targeted. but men like this. >> right. rather than politicizing the tragedy and pressing pause and remembering this hero who died in the line of duty. that's what they did the university of colorado, colorado springs, they had moments of silence before two of the basketball games yesterday. they had vigils, there was a local police, state professionals to remember garrett swasey. >> you didn't see anybody trying

4:06 am
towards the central plains and now the ice is moving in across parts of kansas, missouri and in towards iowa. take a look at this video out of el reno. if you remember a couple of years ago, el reno is a town that experienced the whitest ever tornado that we've experienced. that town saw a loot of damage. now they have this ice storm. west of the oklahoma city area. you get an idea how destructive it is. it will take a long time to get it repaired with the icy conditions things not getting better. it will warm up a bit this week and warm up into the 50s over the next couple of days. we're here to watch another piece of this energy move farther to the north. watch what happens in the future. isiah cross parts of kansas and iowa. we'll start to see snow move in across nebraska, iowa, minnesota and south dakota. some of the spots, guys, probably about a foot of snow by the time it's done on tuesday. big winter storm affecting the northern plains. >> foot of snow.

4:09 am
and the server in dunkin' donuts wrote something endorsing black lives matter on the cup. >> wrote the #black lives matter. here's a copy of the cup. he was surprised by that. he was concerned about the safety of his fellow officers. he decided to take to facebook to write about it. he has 3,000 followers on facebook. wanted to organize a protest and demonstrate outside the dunkin' donuts to say basically blue lives matter. that's when he lost his job. we talked to him earlier on the show about sticking up for his fellow officers. listen. >> i knew that would have happened. my mission was to have all the street cops, because i worry about the street cops. black lives matter is an organization that has some individuals, just some individuals that advocate to police officers and that was my concern. >> to declare -- it wasn't on his cup, it was on another
4:10 am
police officer's cup. >> he organized a small demonstration and then the providence police department said we're not going to rehire you this year. >> what about the constitution applying to him. right to assembly, freedom of speech. >> if he was defending black lives matter would they have fired him? of course not. >> he said he was not authorized to speak on behalf of the providence police department. also to be clear, he was hired every year. he says he worked since like 1992, he's been getting $1200 a year. he never asked for a raise. he would go out and dance like an hour and a half between thanksgiving and christmas. he would do this. >> good news. >> make spirits bright and all that. they didn't rehire him this year. >> good news now. silver lining to the story. the mayor of east providence called him and say why don't you come to our town, we'd love to hire you. >> you're seeing this all over. people fired, for expressing
4:11 am
unpopular political views. that is not the american way. >> we get to see him and he hands out candy canes. >> pretty spry. could you do it? >> none of us could. donald trump meets with 100 black pastors. one says trump is the man for the oval office. >> cincyville back in the headlines. this bale of hay cannot be controlled. when a wildfire raged through elkhorn ranch, the sudden loss of pasture became a serious problem for a family business. faced with horses that needed feeding and a texas drought that sent hay prices soaring, the owners had to act fast. thankfully, mary miller banks with chase for business.
4:12 am
and with greater financial clarity and a relationship built for the unexpected, she could control her cash flow, and keep the ranch running. chase for business. so you can own it.
4:13 am
...one of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine, i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed.
4:14 am
see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. see if you're eligible for 12 months free at mybreo.com. boy: once upon a time, there was a nice house that lived with a family. one day, it started to rain and rain. water got inside and ruined everybody's everythings. the house thought she let the family down. but the family just didn't think a flood could ever happen. the reality is, floods do happen. protect what matters. get flood insurance. call the number on your screen to learn more.
4:15 am
donald trump plans to meet tomorrow with 100 black religious leaders in an effort to reach out to the black community. what will trump say and what can we expect from that meeting? one of the pastors attending is mark burns, the senior pastor of harvest praise center. he joins us this morning. pastor, good to see you this morning. >> hey, tucker, how are you? >> i'm well, thanks. your presence at the meeting tomorrow, is it a sign you plan to support donald trump for president? >> what i really truly believe that he is the best person for the republican nomination. and many of us really feel that this is a season and a time for a strong leader that can really bring americans together. but obviously, there's some questions regarding the black community that many of us really have to have some answered
4:16 am
before we pull our full support. that's why we're having this meeting. >> can you be more specific? you're hearing democrats say that trump is essentially leading a candidacy of white reaction against diversity and demographic change and that he's somehow anti-black and anti-hispanic. you clearly don't buy that. >> again, there's some action that is have taken place, as mr. trump is running for president, there are some things that -- there are questionable things that are creating for racial tension than racial unity. and so, you know, again the incidents with the twitter, retweeting the stats. talking about the statements taking place with the black lives matter candidate, black lives matter protests disrupting and getting roughed up. things like that, that are
4:17 am
creating more racial tension than racial unity. this meeting really is coming -- i think it's a 911 meeting so that mr. trump can speak to these 100 black pastors and leaders across america. a lot of them are strongly caucasian-led rallies. why is it that many blacks are not showing up and why is it many blacks still see him as a racist white supremacist. many of us know not the answer. we know -- those who met him one-on-one, he's probably one of the least racist person -- and this is out of his own mouth when he was asked that very question. but the rest of america primarily black america don't see that. and so this meeting, again, it's a 911 cry that he has to be able
4:18 am
to address some of these issues and not just do it privately. he has to come out and address it publicly. >> you're hearing democrats say, i heard one yesterday say that these black pastors are meeting -- you all are meeting with donald trump. probably because he paid you. is that true? >> that's absolutely a -- donald trump hasn't paid or asked -- his company, his administration, that is preposterous to think we're being paid. there are no judass, no uncle toms, nobody selling out the black race like many have stated for 30 pieces of silver. no, we are there because we met the man, those who of us who met like derrick scott, and other great men and women of god, those who have met him and fallen in love with the character of donald trump. and believe he's been extremely
4:19 am
kind. you got to understand, tucker, this meeting that we're having monday is a makeup meeting for a meeting that was scheduled in october in atlanta. we had about -- it wasn't as heavily publicized as this meeting. but it was a meeting that 50 or so black pastors from america came to meet with donald trump and because of his delayed plane and delayed time infraction, we weren't able to have real dialog like we had planned. he wanted to make it up to us and make sure that he took this time out baus it's so important that we met. then he -- the number from 50 to 100 and now we're meeting in trump towers. how real dialog, again, nobody has gotten paid. that's preposterous to suggest that we have been paid. >> that's -- >> even if they offered, we
4:20 am
woulit. >> thanks for clarifying it. pastor mark burns, we appreciate you joining us this problem. >> no problem, tucker. thanks for having me. a remarkable story coming up. newborn baby found alive on the side of road. the guardian angel, the hero who saved her life. we'll bring you that story. if you ever sat next to someone like this on an airplane? >> oh, that feels better. >> you may have seen it yesterday on the busiest travel weekend of the year. the travel etiquette to get you home safely and cleanly. stay tuned for that. the great beauty of owning a property is that you can create wealth through capital appreciation, and this has been denied to many south africans for generations.
4:21 am
this is an opportunity to right that wrong. the idea was to bring capital into the affordable housing space in south africa, with a fund that offers families of modest income safe and good accommodation. citi got involved very early on and showed an enormous commitment. and that gave other investors confidence. citi's really unique, because they bring deep understanding of what's happening in africa. i really believe we only live once, and so you need to take an idea that you have and go for it. you have the opportunity to say, "i've been part of the creation of over 27,000 units of housing," and to replicate this across the entire african continent. whether your car is a new car an old car a big car a small car a car that looks kind of plain

4:26 am
electronic devices causing a lot of consternation on flights. what do we do when they tell us to power down? when everyone is quiet and we're still allowed to use them. >> on a plane, you shouldn't -- people tend to get on the phone. in my opinion, i think if you're going to have a lengthy personal conversation. it's probably not the right thing to do. if it's an emergency, ask the driver do they mind you using the phone. >> amtrak has set up a quiet phone that is a designated cell phone-free zone and you can sit in that car for free. it's no extra charge. i think that's a good tip for friends and family traveling. set up your own cell phone-free zone. power down digital detox. it's a great tool. >> what about on a plane? >> first of all, i flew on emirates airline. they allow people to talk on the phone on the plane, which i absolutely despise. >> that's a movement we're hearing more and more airlines considering. >> i think that's a terrible idea.

it's going to cause fights like in the tease at the mall. people just don't have quiet voices. they don't know how loud they speak. especially just because it doesn't concern anybody else. it's going to tick people off. >> bottom line, keep your phones in your pocket. read a book, quiet down. >> what about traveling with kids, whether you have kids and they're annoying or arnold schwarzenegger getting his seat kicked by a kid. >> you can always try to look back and ask politely for the seat kicker to stop. we know that doesn't always happen. i said get ahead of the problem. upgrade to a priority or premium seating or become a frequent flyer. if you're in elite status flyer, you tend to get upgraded for free. >> talk to the flight attendant. i don't think there's anything wrong with telling the flight attendant. i'm trying to get rest before i continue my journey, do you mind speaking with the parent. i would directly speak with the parent. when you have kids, you know these things happen.
4:28 am
>> i don't think there's a problem with saying would you mind asking your child to stop or maybe switching seats with them. put them in the middle seat so they don't kick that seat or give them a look kind of thing. >> we're so afraid as if we can't interact with parents with kids who are acting rowdy. it's too politically correct to speak up and talk to. >> it's the donald trump outlook. say what's on your mind and hopefully it will be better. >> your kid is kicking my seat. i'm offended by that. know, id like to actually sleep. >> what if a fellow passenger crosses the lane. the late great john candy taking off his shoes and putting his socks in someone's face. >> taking your shoes off it one thing, taking off your socks is another thing. there are comfortable travel shoes, put sneakers on. you don't have to take your shoes off. don't put your feet on dashboard if you're driving. >> go ahead. >> as far as personal grooming. there are few personal grooming
4:29 am
habits that are appropriate for a flight. nail clipping, applying nail polish. anything beyond moisture icing skin, lip balm or eye drops. leave that for off the plane. >> have you witnessed somebody clipping their nails? >> i have. >> i have. i've witnessed people cutting their foe nails. recently i was on the plane, the guy crossed his leg and his feet were touching my knee. i looked at him, dude, i am going to -- >> i wonder if a flight attendant would step in and say do you mind putting that away for the time being. >> i have seen more and more flight attendants step in especially when seats are reclined. they ask people to do things to accommodate passengers. >> merry christmas. i hope we have a nice easy travel season this month. >> nice to see you all. >> thank you. coming up on the show, they're paid to keep our airlines safe. dozens of airport workers are on

screen this weekend. is it a knockout? kevin mccarthy's review is just ahead.
4:44 am
4:45 am
4:46 am
hi everyone. 14 minutes before the top of the hour. republican presidential candidate dr. ben carson makes a surprise trip to jordan to visit syrian refugees. his goal? to better understand the refugee crisis. is this too little too late? here from vice president of political polling and public affairs at research at wpa research is lisa booth and political analyst ebony williams. thanks for being with us. >> good morning, anna. >> ebony, you say too little too late? >> yeah, anna. i think it's too little and far too late. i appreciate dr. carson making an effort on this issue. but he's had too many missteps. his own advisers said with their
4:47 am
most intense tutoring, he's still not able to get it. yes, there's a learning curve. he's not able to measure up and the stakes are too high at this point in time. >> lisa, foreign policy and the threat of global terrorism becomes more front and center, is that going to hurt dr. carson? >> anna, you absolutely can't discount ben carson right now. he's been polling in the top three in national polls and in early primary states like iowa for months now. he still is. absolutely, you can't discount him at this point. this is a positive step in the right direction. trying to bolster some of his foreign policy credentials. however, in the wake of the paris attacks and pay route and mali. it puts him in a difficult situation. foreign policy is a weakness of his. it helps the candidates that have a better command on the issue. i think that the k5id that stands to lose the most or the biggest disadvantage is hillary clinton. because she has supported president obama's policies and
4:48 am
his failed policy and strategy on isis. >> that's who the candidate will likely be up against. ebony, to you now. it's been report thad dr. carson brought on a new adviser who has done work with mark brunette, roma downey trying to draw up support for christians living in the region and finding places for them to be reset willed. he's playing to his strength and does well with evangelical christians. i see her point but i have to disagree. it is time to look at dr. carson as not being a top tier candidate. his descent is rapid in the wake of the paris attacks. it's going to be this way. he himself has said it. it's akin to this. if we're on trial for our life, are you hiring the trial lawyer familiarizing themselves with the statute or learning the evidence rules? probably not. we want the one with the most experience and knowledge base going into the position. i think dr. carson struggles
4:49 am
there. >> final word, lisa. >> anna, to that point you have to -- hillary clinton failed to meet the national security request that could have prevented the death of four americans in benghazi. she helped to spearhead the iran deal giving a billion dollars to the nation's largest sponsor of terrorism. so you would have to discredit hillary clinton. >> actually, i agree with you there. hillary has her own significant problems when it comes to foreign policy issues. we'll see that play out. >> not to mention the failed russia reset. >> absolutely. we'll see that. >> ebony and lisa, thank you so much. >> thank you. >> we'll talk about this a lot more throughout the rest of the show. 11 minutes before the top of the hour on a sunday morning. a community comes together to honor a fallen officer. the planned parenthood gunman. we're live in colorado springs at the top of the hour. rocky returns to the box office with a revival. is the movie a champ or a chump?

well, it's a busy time of year at the movies. if you're headed to the theater, wait a few more minutes before you buy the tickets. >> you need the advice of kevin mccarthy who joins us with exactly the reviews you want this week. >> hey, kef. >> i hope you had a good thanksgiving. yeah, the big movie this weekend is the movie "creed." there's a lot of oscar buzz surrounding this movie. the seventh film in the "rocky"
4:54 am
franchise. i didn't know what to expect, but the film director did a great job with the emotional journey. and the intensity of every fight scene is absolutely mind blowing. michael b. jordan delivered an amazing performance in "fruit vail station." but really the standout is sylvester stallone, he deserves an oscar nomination for best supporting actor. this is one of the best films of the year. it made me feel the same way i felt at the end of the first "rocky." they did a wrote good job of bringing back the spirit of rocky. one of the best films of the year. look at the second fight in the film. it was all done in one shot with steady cam, basically the way they did the original shots in
4:55 am
"rocky" when he was doing the step. >> when was the first "rocky"? >> 1976. if he wins this time, that would be absolutely huge. >> and he wrote it in three days. it's hard to forget the original "rocky" movie was so good. >> michael b. jordan took a couple punches to the face at some point during the shots. >> like an episode of "fox and friends." dangerous. >> "the good dinosaur" is a new pixar film. >> i gave it a 3.5 out of 5. it visually one of the most stunning films of the year. didn't hit me as emotionally hard as "inside out." and i spoke about the voice work in the film and his character had a lot of grunting. i wanted to know if he was in the studio grunting all of the
4:56 am
time. >> i was screaming and grunting. okay. what am i doing this for. i'm just doing random things. but after seeing it come to life. you would get different ways, different screams. okay. find one. and he found ways to put them inside the movie and it made sense being there. it was so amazing to watch. >> i gave the movie a 3.5 out of 5. not as good as "inside out" but still a very visual film. just didn't love it. >> we're getting into the good season of movies. great to see you. >> bye guys. have a wonderful day. >> quinton tarantino called some police officers murderers. one group of cops is calling the director a liar. that brawl continues. we'll bring you the latest. and knowing right when my packages arrive. so that's two things. introducing real time delivery notifications.

5:06 am
we asked him a question based on allegations you've been hearing from democrats, including one on the show yesterday that these black ministers have been paid by the trump campaign in order to endorse him. here is his response. >> donald trump hasn't paid or even asked his company, his administration, that is preposterous to think that we're being paid. there are no judists that are selling out the black race that many have stated just for some 30 pieces of silver. no. we're there because we met the man, those of us who have met, like the doctor who's led the coalition of african american ministers, those who are met him and fallen in love with the character of donald trump. >> and pastor burns says this is not an endorsement for all 100 who are going to be there. they want to meet with donald trump and what's his take on profiling, how does he plan to

5:09 am
i have no idea what's going to happen but this is suddenly looking very real. and by the way if he is the nominee, i'm hardly endorsing him, he'll get a higher percentage of the african american vote and latino vote than mitt romney got. >> it seems to suggest that there's a panic right now in the gop. >> it doesn't suggest, it proves. there is absolutely panic, yes n. >> they're saying this is legitimate and there is panic in the ranks right now. we're going to talk to chris wallace about all of that and more. >> the big meeting trump and the 100 pastors is tomorrow. the fox news alert, a police officer many pennsylvania shot and killed overnight responding to a dplik domestic disturbance. now the man accused of shooting him was arrested. he ran into the woods after the shooting. st. clair township police officer lloyd reid died at the

...one of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine, i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whosethma long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse.

ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. see if you're eligible for 12 months free at mybreo.com. five years ago, on any given night, you know, almost 75,000 veterans experienced homelessness. we have reduced those numbers by almost half, but despite the great progress that we have achieved, there are still too many veterans who still need a place to live. this project is a comprehensive rehabilitation of the center's facility here in downtown boston to create permanent supportive housing, transitional housing and service spaces, a facility that really delivers on society's commitment to people who have served in the military. citi® was the financial partner because they were able to come with the resources, both the capital resources and also the human resources, the experts in their fields, and without citi's partnership we probably would not be in construction right now. the goal for us in this project is to be more effective in the services that we provide

chris stone, great to see you this morning. >> good morning. >> this is the opposite of a boycott. you're encouraging people to buy products that meet your standards nlt it's rewarding people for doing things that are valuable to the community. a buycott has a negative connotation. this is using marketplace leverage as so many other groups are to encourage businesses to engage with faith driven consumers.

what does it mean to engage brands to show support? >> we've made it very easy. people who come to the website christmas buycott. you have a list of brands you can reach out to. you can say thank you for what you're doing or encourage people to do a better job. just a simple click of the button. it's transparent and easy for people to engage all kinds of brands within our list of over 300 companies. >> so some of the brands that you have gotten behind, dunkin' donuts, u.p.s., why for example hilton over marriott? >> well we evaluated the companies on a number of criteria. we did anytime a very scientific fashion. we gave them an opportunity as brands to speak whoa into the stur survey, the faith equality index. and the net of that is some scored better. some are engaging better than others. what we find is that most companies have not given faith driven consumer, even though it's 41 million people, 17% of

the population that spend $2 trillion, this is a new idea for most companies. we're helping them to a better job as other communities have before us. >> interesting. as other kpunts have before you. so you're saying that the christian consumers haven't been an effective lobby up to this point. >> they haven't been active. look at the human rights campaign, the advocates for the lgbt community. they have 366 companies who have a perfect score on their index. so we are really playing catchup as a community. it's not in our nature as christians to be advocates or to be activists and we're trying to give people a positive way to go about that through the buycott. >> that's really interesting. good luck. >> thank you. up next, america honors its fallen veterans by laying wreaths at arlington national

5:54 am
why is it so important our viewers get involved and help you out this year? >> well, arlington -- i consider arlington to be our nation's cemetery. we have veterans buried at arlington from every state. these are local heroes that are actually buried at arlington and not in local cemeteries. arlington buries 25 to 30 people a day at arlington, so the number always grows. last year we placed -- we were, for the first time, able to place a wreath on every eligible marker at arlington, but if the trend continues, we will be short, even though we're growing nationally, we will be short at arlington about 30,000 wreaths. >> 30,000 short, wow. how can our viewers get involved? >> well, they can -- a lot of people think the government does this. we receive no government funding. our wreaths are paid for by individual sponsorships and donations. sponsorship for a wreath is $15.
5:55 am
we look to corporations to help us. they can go on our website and sponsor a wreath or two to help us meet this goal. >> over the years while you've been out there placing the wreaths at the grave sites of our nation's heroes, have you had an experience you see a family member visit a family member they lost and haven't had a wreath? >> i have. a few years ago -- last year, as i said, was the first year in 24 years we were able to cover all of arlington. prior to that the seam tear would assign us sections to cover with the wreath. that would leave some sections bare. and a few years ago in one of the sections that was not supposed to be covered some of our volunteers, and we have thousands of volunteers that come to help us, they placed several dozens wreaths in this one section. we don't go back to that section and pick up those wreaths because they weren't assigned in that section, but they're still
5:56 am
honoring a veteran, so we left them there. i happened to be walking by carrying a wreath, a special request wreath, where someone has made a donation and lives in california or out of the area and asked us to make sure that their loved one received a wreath. i was walking through this one section and i had the wreath in my hand and there was a gentleman standing there and he said, excuse me, what are all these wreaths? so i stopped and told him about our wreaths across america and our mission to remember, honor and teach and to thank our veterans for their sacrifices. he looked down and said, what about my son? and as i looked down, the people had put wreaths down on that row. they ended right where his son's marker was and his son didn't have a wreath, and it really hit me hard. that's why we fight every day now to make sure somebody else doesn't come in and ask about what about my son? what about my father? >> exactly and it was super easy. you just have to go to your website

one of the most dramatic wins in their history. the fighting irish will now finish the regular season 10-2. those are your headlines. >> those are your headlines and now the latest in the presidential race. donald trump, a front-runner in many polls, nationally and in some key states, is meeting tomorrow at the trump tower with 100 black pastors. one of them, pastor mark burns from south carolina, joined us earlier in the show he to respond to allegations from some democrats that these pastors have been paid in order to support donald trump. here is his support. >> donald trump hasn't paid his company, his administration. that is preposterous to think we're being paid. no, we are there because we met the man. darrell scott has led this co-lags of african-american ministers across the country. those who have met him and
6:08 am
fallen in love with the character of donald trump. >> this is a meeting not an endorsement. will he get an endorsement? we'll wait and see. that meeting tomorrow. what mark burns is saying they want to ask him questions like what's your take on profiling? we want to hear this from you and not the media. how do you plan to get people off welfare and black people are open-minded and care about the welfare of the entire united states. >> you saw huge crowds down in florida. donald trump down there yesterday in marco rubio's backyard. look at these pictures on twitter. five blocks people were describes the lines wrapped around five blocks in order to get into the arena down there in saraso sarasota. sold-out crowds. 12,000 people reportedly inside this arena. donald trump says he's leading in florida. listen. >> we're leading in florida against a sitting senator. a sitting senator. >> trump!
6:09 am
trump! trump! trump! trump! >> thank you. but think of this. we're leading against an ex-governor, bush. by the way, we have so many things to talk about i want to say it up front right now, the second amendment 100%. re common core out. second amendment up, up, up. >> you can laugh all you want but he's right, he's right about his poll numbers in florida, which is the key state in any presidential election especially now, he's beating the state's most popular governor of the modern era, jeb bush, and its current sitting senator by huge margins. >> and it's so important if republicans lose florida they pretty much lose -- >> you have to win florida. so the people in washington, the republican party, i'm not taking sides sincerely, but they from
6:10 am
the beginning have written trump off as a joke who will go away, evaporate or do something appalli appalling. that hasn't happened. he's winning by a bigger margin now than three months ago. this is real. >> his tough talk and different approach to politics. you remember in iowa at the state fair, where is donald t m trump? and then here comes this helicopter with trump on the side. he has the helicopter giving rides to kids. in sarasota, florida, where the ringling brothers have some sort of training facility or headquarters or something. >> and they're retiring those elements. the ringling brothers retired those elephants. meanwhile, did you hear about this story, this was the traffic cop -- you've probably seen his videos have gone viral of him up in providence, rhode island. he's the dancing cop. you see him at the holidays bringing cheer to folks during the holiday season in providence. well, he's out on the job right now because he stood up for some
6:11 am
other police officers who received a black lives matter message on their dunkin' donuts cup. there it is, the picture of the black lives matter hash tag written out by an employee at a dunkin' donuts. he spoke out and said blue lives matter. well, the police department responded and let him out of a job. >> here he is. >> i knew that would have happened but my mission was to have all the street cops -- because i'm worried about the street cops -- black lives matter is an organization that has some individuals -- some individuals -- that advocate harm to police officers, and that was my concern. >> and he just rallied a few people, eight people who were even in the protest. he had just a handful of followers on facebook. now he has thousands.
6:12 am
the providence police department had this to say about why they weren't going to rehire him this year. he was not authorized to speak on behalf of the providence police department and his actions were a disservice to the department and members of the providence community. but the silver lining of the story we are still going to see his lovely dance moves. he's going to be dancing in east providence, which is not too far away. >> it's next door and it's a nice town. this is still an ominous story, though, because it's a reflection of the mandatory conformity we're all living under now. black lives matter marches into restaurants and screams at people on the basis of their skin color. if you pipe up and say that's wrong, you're fired. you're not allowed to disagree with these people. i mean the institutional left. no one is allowed to disagree on global warming, black lives matter, or you're attacked or fired. that's bad. that's not the american way actually. >> by the way, the employee of the dunkin' donuts wasn't fired,
6:13 am
according to mr. leore, she was re-assigned to another store. imagine going in and people are writing political messages on cups of your coffee. >> i think dunkin' donuts did apologize saying that we're committed to showing our appreciation and respect for all officers but the point you bring up about not being able to express your own values and beliefs -- >> i'm not defending police brutality but pem to express their political views. that's sacrosanct. >> addiction in america taking center stage in new hampshire as th that state is battling hundreds of deaths. a plan for how to fight it next. >> and we've heard mary poppins' super sweet advice, of course. ♪ a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down ♪ ♪ the medicine go down the medicine go down ♪ >> turns out sugar may also help your workout go down.

6:15 am
6:16 am
...one of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine, i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours. breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid.
6:17 am
do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. see if you're eligible for 12 months free at mybreo.com. welcome back. america's heroin crisis is in fact a crisis, rising to levels that demand the attention of candidates running for president this year, from both sides of the aisle saying something needs to be done soon. >> people are addicted to painkillers and then resort to a lower cost alternative and then die. there should be a little bit more outrage about what's going on. >> i never expected that substance abuse and mental health would be major issues in my campaign until i came to keene on my very first trip. >> i dealt with this personally with people in my life. >> i'm glad republicans are acknowledging this issue and i hope we can work together.

>> now there's a bipartisan task force in the congress promoting cooperation between federal agencies and state governments to fight opiate addiction as we discuss addiction in america. congressman frank giunta of new hampshire. thank you for joining us this morning. >> my pleasure. thanks for having me. >> it's been a terrible scourge in your state, maine, and rural america, opiate addiction and the deaths that result. what is the first thing lawmakers can do to fight this? >> well, we've had a doubling of overdoses, addiction and deaths and here in new hampshire it's been even worse. so what i have done is created the congressional task force. we have 40 members of congress and the purpose of that is to not just inform and educate members of congress on the problems not just here in new england but nationally. we have filed the stop abuse act which redirects the resources, financial federal resources to
6:19 am
better attack the challenges of abuse but also the criminal side of this issue. >> speaking of criminal side you heard jeb bush say it, so many heroin addicts began on prescription drugs. some are not responsible and they're on the market because they've been overprescribed. what's the law enforcement response to those ifphysicians? >> there are people, unfortunately, tucker, who get a legal prescription who then get addicted to it and then go to an opiate or heroin as a result of no longer being able to obtain that original prescription. those doctors need to be reeled in as part of the stop abuse act, as a better coordinated effort to ensure they aren't doctor shopping and doctors aren't overprescribing. that's part of the problem here but on the criminal side we also have to go after the individuals who are selling heroin this heroin is coming from mexico. we talk about border security in
6:20 am
terms of immigration. we also need to remind ourselves that the majority of heroin is coming from mexico, across the southern border into the united states, into massachusetts and up into northern new england. that's something that our stop abuse act also addresses. >> congressman, unfortunately, we're out of time. we have so little time. give us a sense how big a problem this is in your state, new hampshire. >> in new hampshire we've had 295 deaths, heroin-related deaths so far just this year and we're only into november. we've had a doubling of the deaths over the last decade as well as a doubling of the narcan use, doubling of admissions. 90,000 arrests for heroin and opiate abuse. this is an epidemic in new hampshire and an epidemic across the country. >> unbelievable. such a small state, too. thanks for joining us this morning. we appreciate it. >> thank you. up next chicago schools creating lesson plans on laquan mcdonald's shooting after authorities release this had dramatic dash cam video.

6:22 am
that works 2 ways to fight the symptoms of moderate to severe alzheimer's disease. once-a-day namzaric may improve cognition and overall function and may slow the worsening of symptoms for a while. namzaric does not change how the disease progresses. it shouldn't be taken by anyone allergic to memantine, donepezil, piperidine or any of the ingredients in namzaric. before starting treatment, tell the doctor about any medical conditions they have... including heart or lung problems, seizures, stomach ulcers, bladder, kidney, or liver problems. tell the doctor if the patient will have any procedures involving anesthesia, which may cause muscle problems. other serious side effects may occur, including slow heartbeat and fainting; increased stomach acid, which may raise the chance of ulcers and bleeding; nausea and vomiting; difficulty passing urine, seizures, and worsening of lung problems. the most common side effects associated with namzaric are headache, diarrhea, dizziness, loss of appetite, and bruising. woman: mom and i share a lot of moments. and we're making the most of each one. vo: ask your doctor if new namzaric

6:26 am
be taught hatred or to think every cop is bad or every black person is a criminal. i think this is great. >> they have handed out a tool kit for teachers. they know this will be talked about. >> so schools have to be prepared because most stuff happening in the community makes its way into the school district. i did look into the tool kit. one of the things that's going to be in the tool kit is in order to avoid further perfe perpetuation. they will be talking about that, eradicating the vilification, i'm fine with that. if it will create indoctrination, i have a problem with that. >> that can't sit well with you.

grieving over certain circumstances. for teachers, i would like to see something along the lines of 2,700 shootings in chicago in 2015, 12,000 police officers. of those 2,700 shootings, police officers save such and such lives. we hear about one terrible incident but not all the people who are shot in the crime capital of the world. >> that's a good point. a deeper discussion about chicago, the crime capital of the country instead of this one particular instance. >> one thing that's important, too, i often speak at the schools where there's a panel, like someone in the field that comes in, an attorney and actual law enforcement officer. that may be better than having the teacher. the teacher is limited in their scope of expertise. >> and the onus isn't on them. great to see you that morning. >> great to see you, too. president obama heads to paris to talk climate change as hundreds of thousands of pr protesters march in the streets. the new video just ahead. and these firefighters have

let's reach out, be our brother's keeper but it's not the pope's job or bishops or priests or pastors' job to vet them. we're depending on the government to do that. >> if a church group settles refugees in the u.s. and puts them on public assistance, on welfare, why is that an act of christian charity? they're transferring the cost to taxpayers who have no say. >> not everyone who comes over is going to come on. i'm sure a lot of them would if given an opportunity. there is a natural right to emigrate. there's not an absolute right to immigrate into a country, immigration with an "i." it's the responsibility of the government to control at a sustainable level.
