3:01 am
the gift you got for dad back fires. [ laughter ] >> oh my god. >> dozens of dads getting whoever boards and it didn't go very well. the video going viral this morning. you just saw it mornings, guess what, they are better with friends. ♪ ♪ >> i want to get a hover board in here for you two. that's what i want. good morning. did you guys have a good christmas. >> great christmas. good to be with you both. >> we are going to be sharing some our stories and holiday pictures with you in a few moments. first, we need to get right to. we start an extreme weather alert out of alabama. tornado destroying several homes and trapping people beneath debris. rescue crews working throughout the night to pull residents from the rubble. at this point no one has been reported missing. they are now working to restore power to the area.
3:02 am
residents talk about the terrifying moment the storm hit. >> pouring down, heavy rain, just heavy rain, and then all of a sudden, the blast in the windows just broke out and then it was like somebody was clawing the tinning off of the house, the roof. >> three people taken to the hospital. governor has declared a state of emergency. death toll rises to 15 across tennessee, mississippi and arkansas from storms earlier this week as clean-up continues. more severe weather is expected over the weekend. >> some parts of the country will see some snow. janice dean is tracking it all for us this morning. good morning, janus. some tough stories out there. >> yeah. especially on christmas when people are trying to celebrate. we have unfortunately, some rough weather to get through. we had many tornado reports over the past couple of days. and today no exception. we do have a major winter storm that's taking shape along with the potential for severe weather today. so take a look at the temperatures. you can see we have got the clash of the two air masses
3:03 am
there. temperatures in the single digits and teens across the northern plains and rockies. ahead of that, very warm, unstable air. and we set some records. some high temperature records for christmas day across the east coast. that is what is fueling some of these storms. past 24 hours you can can see heavy rainfall across the southeast tennessee river valley as well as the mississippi river valley. flash flooding is going to be a concern. behind this a very big deal in terms of snow and blizzard conditions across the southwest. so this is a multi-faceted storm we are watching over the last 24 hours you are going to see the snow fly across the upper midwest. back down through texas, oklahoma,and the southwest. so let's take a look at it we have blizzard conditions, blizzard warnings for parts of new mexico into texas. that's where you see the red on your screen and then we have blizzard watches north of that for parts of colorado in towards oklahoma and up into kansas. and then the snowy part of this storm we are going to
3:04 am
see over a foot, maybe 2 feet of snow as we get into monday and tuesday. so this is going to be a long lasting storm. not only the potential for tornadoes again today across the south and mississippi river valley but blizzard conditions across the southwest. we are going to be covering this today through monday really. >> wild weather and weird weather here in new york city and people are trying to travel,. >> people are urged to stay in touch with travel plans, the people they are seeing, and, of course, watch your weather forecast. >> and the airlines. >> you can't be on the roadways if it's this dangerous. >> janice, thanks. >> there is usually snow in your neck of the woods. >> i bought a snow blower are and yesterday we had 70 degrees and were at the beach. >> santa claus internetting it out. donald trump went and spent christmas with his family. but it didn't take him long to get on the twitter device and tweet out to his 5 million followers and hammer on his rivals. in fact, the first one he
3:05 am
hit up was governor jeb bush of florida. remember when failed candidate jeb bush said illegals came across the border as an act of love. he spent $59 million and is at 3%. >> jeb bush has to be frustrated with this the way donald trump has dominated the agenda and dominated him. the fact of the matter is he is right jeb bush has spent tens of millions of dollars and he is at 3% of the polls nationally. reuters poll out this morning donald trump high 30's, low 40s dominating the ageneral did and dominating the polls. he hasn't looked back from the beginning of this race. >> there have been reports out that some of the poll numbers for donald may be higher than what we are seaing because people are embarrassed to say on the phone that they are -- in these phone polls embarrassed saying they support him they can do it anonymously online these numbers are higher. these numbers may be inflated even more. >> when you see what he is doing, apparently must have been a bad sermon yesterday
3:06 am
he gets out of church and against jeb bush. no surprise, actually. he is talking about things that actually people are talking about in heir living rooms and dining rooms. >> i would have thought he would have enjoyed his family though. >> he likes dominating the agenda. it didn't stop with jeb bush. hillary clinton tweeted as well about hillaryly in particular when will the democrats and hillary in particular say we must build a great wall and mexico is going to pay for it? never. donald trump said that a long time ago. that shook up the republican side of the race. he is trying to look ahead to the general election. i have been out on the road covering hillary clinton. she has been ahead to the general election for two or three months. she doesn't have much competition on the primaries. donald trump at least on paper has more competition than hillary clinton. when he looks at the poll numbers he is probably starting to say with these tweets let's start looking at the general election. >> what would be a primary election, husband numbers
3:07 am
are are 30-plus percent. but then do you head-to-head matchup when he is against hillary clinton, several other candidates are doing better than donald trump. >> that's why he is doing what he is doing, obviously focusing. i think that's appropriate. i think hillary is going to lose new hampshire all the independents playing in the republican primary because they have so many great candidates. >> donald trump is going to be on the program tomorrow make sure you watch "fox & friends" 8:00 a.m. eastern. speaking of hillary clinton in the new year she might be facing her were secret weapon. >> he has been lurking and trying to get out there more and more. at the beginning i thought it was appropriate that the campaign thought look, let's not have the former president overshadow this person who wants to be president. this campaign is on. it's none ernest. hillary clinton is pulling away. let's get bill clinton to be the closer if you will. people in new york will
3:08 am
remember rivera, if you are are a yankees fan. think back to the 2000 will campaign. clinton campaign thought the same thing then. look at what happened. >> that's exactly -- won south carolina twice in '84 and '88. he ran a good campaign and senator obama ran a good campaign there. >> it was a gaffe it offended some african-american voters who, you know, it seemed like bill clinton was demeaning the success of barack obama in some of those early primaries like south carolina. in the end barack obama won hillary clinton forgiven, perhaps, she became secretary of state. barack obama staying out of the primaries now. it's clear with joe biden out and never getting in. that the president is waiting for hillary clinton to take this nomination. >> there you go. we will be talking about this all morning long. right now we need to tell you about other stories making head lanes and start with this one. victory over isis may be within reach. this morning, right outside one of the terror groups major strong holds.
3:09 am
iraqi forces saying they are closing in on the isis controlled compound in ramadi. troops making a measure push this week with the help of u.s. led air strikes. officials think 1100 isis militants are hiding out at the compound along with 150 civilian families. and panic erupts at disney springs in florida after a christmas fist fight leads to a false alarm about shots fired. people scene screaming and running out of a cafe. social media lighting up rumors gunshots even a bomb going off. police say that was not the case. witnesses apparently misinterpreted a loud fight on the cafe's upper floor as gunshots. one person arrested for disorderly conduct. and, hello from the astro side. the astronaut on the current national space station doesn't accidentally dials the wrong number. british astronaut tim peak meant to call home for christmas. instead he called a random woman. he said i would like to
3:10 am
apologize to the lady i just called by mistake saying hello, is this planet earth? not a prank call, just a wrong number. those are your news headlines. >> well, it's a very merry christmas in my household. how about you guys? >> fantastic. >> having fun. still having fun. rented a movie, playing games last night at home having libations and i was here. >> i had my first merry christmas as a married woman. my husband and our dog baxter. that was a selfie sticky bought on our honey miewnel. my favorite christmas moment of the morning is when we had baxter open up a brand new toy. it was a new set of rings, and we put kibble in the box and he tore into it the only problem then every other person we opened after that he thought was going to being something for him he was trying to take over.
3:11 am
>> named because of anchorman? >> i didn't. but people say that all the time. >> there is my wife shirley on the left. patrick, my son in the middle. mila is 11. that was christmas eve. that's bob and emily jones on the right. they live in virginia right outside of d.c. bob and emily live in the home in alexandria that bob grew up in. parents started start tradition where a bunch of families in the neighborhood would take an hour out on christmas eve. no more of the shopping, no more of the cooking. they would all go to church and then come over to bob's family's house and sing christmas carols. here we are, you know, decades later and we were singing from o come all ye faithful and frosty the snowman. it's cool and gets the family together. >> drinking heavily helps in those events. >> how about you? >> my wife brought me a kiss

little thing. bought me a guitar. whole music theme you will see throughout. here is my wife's new puppy born on 9/11 called gracy. and we were at the beach yesterday, believe it or not. this is my nephew josh playing guitar, rocking out. teaching me chords. that's my lovely daughter arianna says do not take a picture of me. i had to take that. sorry, are a anna. this is my wife gail and our new baby yorkie. >> viewer emails. >> unbelievable. >> send in some pictures to show us what your family did for christmas. >> wield love to see it we will share some of those later in the show. >> the countdown to the iowa caucuses ticking down with just weeks to go with the first in the nation voting contest. the new year's resolution each g.o.p. candidate should make to improve their chances. >> if you are going to make fun of lebron james, just make sure he doesn't see you doing it. the fan going viral for all
3:13 am

here's dad. mom. aunt alice... you didn't tell me aunt alice was coming. of course. don't forget grandpa. can the test drive be over now? maybe just head back to the dealership? don't you want to meet my family? yep, totally. it's practically yours, but we still need your signature. the volkswagen sign then drive event. zero due at signing, zero down, zero deposit, and zero first months payment on a new jetta and other select models.
3:15 am
3:16 am
>> you can tell from the music the countdown to the iowa caucuses is is on with just weeks to go before the first in the nation voting. what do the candidates need to do now to be successful in here with new year's resolutions want to improve their chances ron meyer the editor of red alert politics. merry christmas and we appreciate you joining us. let's started with donald trump. he has obviously done a lot right but not just dominating the early polls but the agenda. getting a lot of the republicans and democrats in their most recent debate reacting to him. what does he need to do to um prove though upon that in the new year? >> of he has built a huge base of really loyal
3:17 am
supporters. the question is what does he need to do to turn those loyal supporters into political activists. i think he is probably of all the candidates the most prime to have a political app. to something like engage people with anywhere smart phones to remind them to vote. he has brought all these new people into the process my question and everybody's question is are they actually going to show up? are they going to show up to vote and caucus? who is going to bus them? what is trump going to do to make sure those people show up not just to rallies with you to vote? >> he is getting big crowds to rallies. is he going to get them to turn out to vote? what about ted cruz? many see him within the republican party as potentially the alternative to donald trump if he were to falter. what does he need to do come january? >> really the funny thing is the establishment obviously doesn't like trump and cruz. i think what cruz can do really is become the lesser of two evils. so, say, hey, can you either go with trump and you have no idea where he is going to stand or you can go with me and you will know exactly what i'm going to do. he needs to convince normal
3:18 am
republicans, mainstream republicans, the donor base that he can appeal to young voters, diverse voters, won't just be labeled as a hard core idealogue. i think if he can get people relatively comfortable he could become the trump alternative. he will have to work really hard to do that the establishment wants to take him and trump down. >> someone who wanted to be the alternative to donald trump early on is dr. ben carson and last 48 to 72 hours has had this bizarre situation where he himself suggested there would be a make shakeup and then sort of back-pedaled what does he need to do. >> needs a big idea. to this point he has really gotten here on his persona. no one can identify what he why he is running and what his ideas are. like steve forbe had the flat tax and herman cain had 99. if herman carson is going to make himself relevant he needs to come up with a big policy idea that can help change the country. people are wondering. a political novice. what is he going to do to change the system and mix it
3:19 am
up. he needs to answer that question. >> what about rubio from the beginning of this race i have heard a the love smart people in washington say he is going to make his move. we are waiting for him to make his move. you know what? they may still be waiting for him to make that move. what does he do come january 1st? >> i think we are all waiting. rubio needs to keep we minding people of the william f. buckley axiom. need to nominate the most conservative candidate who can win. if you look at all the polling performs best against hillary clinton. ,in some polls is the only republican candidate to beat hillary clinton. why isn't he reminding that trump reminds people i'm winning in the polls. why doesn't rubio say i'm the most conservative candidate that can win. you are not going to agree with me 100 percent of the time we have to beat hillary clinton. if you look at everybody else running i'm the most prepared. >> the. >> jeb bush needs to answer one simple question why is he running at this point 3% in the polls spending
3:20 am
$60 million. is it just for family legacy? that's what most of us and most republicans feel. is he really running to do anything instead of just be a steady hand and theory bush. he needs to answer that. why am i in this? what are the real policy reasons. do something different than talking points. >> chris christie we didn't have time for him but he wants to be the alternative to rubio bush as the mainstream candidate as well. we will see how that works out inen gentleman. ron, we appreciate your time today. >> thank you, ed. >> coming up a terrifying scene on camera as a car explodes in the middle of the road. [explosion] [screams] >> up in flames. we will tell you what happened to that driver. then, can you sue your son or daughter and force them to spend the holidays with you? i might have to try that madonna taking her son to court for christmas. was she right? a legal debate next ♪ i have no choice ♪ i hear your voice

marine corps base in hawaii. >> thanks is so much. pop star madonna bringing the power of the court to bring her son back to court after the holidays. the move comes after 15-year-old son refused to board a plane back to the states from london where he was staying with his father. so did she really have a the right to do this? here to debate is former prosecutor jonah spilbore and defense attorney richard ross. this is tough around the holidays. international relationships and divorces have so many extra challenges did. she have the right to do this? >> absolutely. you know, this is a very typical custody battle with atypical players. most of the time you don't have a famous father and famous mother fighting over where your 15-year-old is going to go. invariably, anna, when you have children who become 14, 15, 16 years old and they are supposed to be living with mom. they are going to wake up one day and go you know what, mom? i want to live with dad. what madonna is doing is
3:26 am
very smart. jurisdiction over what we are going to fight about is here in new york. reyesed to a new york judge demanding that rocco get on the plane. the problem is rocco didn't get on the plane. >> i agree, however. two things, number one as much as this is unfortunate during the holidays, it's celebrities. so everyone watches stories about celebrities that's fun. >> me deed that in a media master. >> madonna be careful what you wish for. what happened in new york that judge is going to stand in front of rocco and have rocco tell her he is a 16-year-old who was misbehaving out to 4:00 in the morning or that his mom is really not an appropriate mom because mom travels the world. his mom two weeks ago if we recall was in england and saying all kinds of things to her fans which were totally inappropriate because she was late for her show. the judge is going to find out what the real truth is and madonna bringing him back. she had the authority to do it. be careful, madonna it may be this kid deserves to be with a stable family in
3:27 am
london. >> the judge has some challenges, right? i remember what i was like as a teenager manipulative and my son may have done this very same thing and say i want to be with my mom or my dad because they are easier and can stay out later and do what he want this. how much respect will the judge have for the child's wish or be more for the parent? >> that's an interesting question. when a child is 5, they have no say in who they get to live with. in that case then the judge is going to look at who is is the more fit parent. where i disagree with you i would love if madonna were my mother. i think she would be great and a lot of fun to have as a parent. no money issue there. rocco actually works for madonna. what an opportunity that that kid gets. when you are 15, a court will look at you and he are have his own lawyer, actually appointed for him. and say, where do you want to live and why? it's not enough for a kid to say i just want to live with my dad because i'm sick of living with my mom. they are not going to upset
3:28 am
the status quo unless there is a good reason to. >> that's correct. the other thing we agree on at the end of the day what's in the best interest of the child. the judge is going to look at what guy richie and his lawyers say and madonna and her lawyers say and the child. is it a more secure, stable, safe proper environment to be with the dad or with the mom? it's not an easy one. we don't really know what happens going on. she tweeted to the press wishing him a merry christmas to the world. >> i think it's safe to say we have two good parents. in two and a half years neither one will get a say because he will be 18 and off to college. neither will will have a stay. >> and we are living in a material world. 28 minutes after the hour. here is what can s. coming up on "fox & friends" weekend. what happens when the gift you got for your father back fires?

>> isis terrorists in syria are are reportedly recruiting western engineers to help them build improvised anti-aircraft missile. it could potentially down civilian airliners. this comes just weeks after isis claimed responsibility for taking down a russian plane over egypt sinai peninsula. just how big of a threat is this? former cia operative and father of terror view joshua katz joins us now. thanks for getting up early. i hope you had a good christmas and holiday. as we have herd 27,000 to 3,000 people have actually participated in isis, isis recruiting. first of all, when you talk about 'westerner ares are now being recruited. could you define for people who are the actual westerners? where are they actually from? >> yeah. so the westerners are from all western european countries. australia, the united states, canada. central and south america, even. and i think that the details
3:47 am
here, what we don't talk about is actually who are those people? it's really easy to say thousands of people are being recruited. what are the background of those people? what are their education? ened and i think people are going to be u. absolutely surprised to find out that there are a lot of highly educated people that isis is recruiting. >> what about the actual new report on this about the missiles? how are they getting the technology? we have none we have western engineers doing. this what's the incentive and what about the missile itself? >> so isis is recruiting engineers. they are recruiting chemists and cyber professionals. they have built a team of expert to help them with all the tools that they have stolen from assad, from chemical weapons to explosives to surface-to-air missiles. to help them refine them and to become even more deadly. so this report here is really just talking about
3:48 am
their surface-to-air capability to shoot down coalition planes in the area. but this can quickly be used to target commercial airliners that don't have the safeguards that our military aircraft could. >> right. we saw that in the sinai peninsula. what do you do you think the tht is to commercial traffic. there is economic challenges as a result of that happening. what putin is doing obviously getting more involved in that region. what are your thoughts there? >> it's incredible because this threat is so pervasive. we don't fully understand. our intelligence services don't fully understand the threat here yet. and what i would say is that in certain areas, especially in the middle east right now, travel is especially dangerous because of this threat. airliners don't have the ability to screen well. they don't have the ability to avoid missiles. and we are only going to see more targets against the civilian aircraft industry

3:56 am
fee but you have until january 300th to return that gift let's say you got something january 26th. -- >> big ticket items like tvs, computers, is it 50 bucks restocking fee? is it $10? >> oh, no, anna. it could be up to 30% of what that gift was purchased for. so, let's say you bought a television for $600 and you decide you want a 52-inch tv instead of a 46-inch tv, you would have to pay up to 30%, depending on what electronics merchandiser you went to. you would have to pay that 30%. >> it's almost like a little bit of a caveat emptor before you give that gift. >> thank you. >> thank you guys. >> if you have any question about your refunds email us at foxandfriends.com. a lunch lady is fired for giving a hungry student a

thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. some had seizures while taking chantix. if you have any of these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of mental health problems, which could get worse or of seizures. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you have these, stop chantix and call your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. tell your doctor if you have heart or blood vessel problems, or develop new or worse symptoms. get medical help right away if you have symptoms of a heart attack or stroke. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. most common side effect is nausea. man, i love being a non-smoker. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. jusdoes that mean they have toer grow apart from their friends, or from the things they love to do? with right at home, it doesn't. right at home's professional team thoughtfully selects caregivers to help with personal care, housekeeping, meals, and most of all,

a league memo shows the department of homeland security plans massive raids to deport families who illegally came into the u.s. despite recent dhs stats showing showing from 2014 to 15, illegal immigrant were down 25 %. interior deportation down 31%. illegal criminal aliens removed from interior down 27%. is this just lip service or what can we expect from the future. >> the director of the policy studies at the center for immigration studies and she is here to separate fact from fiction. thanks for getting up so early with us, jessica. why, before christmas, what's the political gainsmanship going on here? do you and others believe this is actually going to happen? >> i'm very, very skeptical, partly because of this administration's track record on immigration enforcement. they have a horrible track record, which you just gave
5:18 am
the numbers on. deportations is have very, very low. 70,000 moved out of a population of 12 million. this is an administration releasing criminal aliens right and left 30-some thousand a your. career immigration professionals say that there is just no way that you would ever announce something like this if you were really going to do it around the holidays it's just not done. it may be for political purposes. it may be to try to convince the supreme court that they are actually ins forting the law. so, you know, trying to get a more favorable ruling if the supreme court takes up the 26 states who have sued over the president's executive action. giving work permits to illegal aliens. but almost no one thinks that this would actually happen. i mean, they don't do raids of any kind anymore. whether at the work place or any sort. there are hundreds of thousands of fugitive illegal aliens living in the
5:19 am
country. you know it's hard to imagine why someone would announce something like this at this point in time. >> it's all politics. the president does nothing unless there is a political end game he has used his pen pen in his phone' to make changes. sircircumventing the will and laws of this state. the will of congress and the laws of this state that do things that quite frankly you have almost 3 to 4 million people right now following the rules and you are putting a class of people ahead of him. the deportations, the fact that he is releasing criminals instead of getting him out of the country is one of the big things that trump is talking about. ted cruz and every other republican. bernie sanders and hillary clinton saying oh, no, jeez, we need to be compassionate. what do you say about that. >> that could be the motivation because just before christmas they released the deportation numbers which were so low and yet clearly the american public feels differently
5:20 am
that we need to do more enforcement, not less. that we need to do a better job of deterring illegal immigration. we need to stop the surge of central americans over the border. we need to take it easy on the refugees. all of the president's policies have been going the other way. and the popularity of many of the republican candidates is because they have a more reasonable and realistic immigration policy articulated that is much more in line with the electorate. and that could really cost the democrats in 2016. >> right. you might be right, this might be an attempt to try to shore up the image of the democratic party. i think it's too little, too late. >> jessica, let me interrupt for someone second because i'm running out of time. i'm sorry we're running out of time. there is always a political reason he is doing. this i want to thank you for your insight. right now, coming up, your favorite nba stars take up gun control.
5:21 am
>> 3-year-old girl over the summer. my daughter reilly is that age. >> there was a point when i felt that i was going to die. >> is that the right platform for their message? we debate that very important topic next.

5:23 am
5:24 am
hope you are having a great christmas weekend with your family, friends. quick look at headlines. iraqi forces say they are closing in on the last isis controlled compound in ramadi. one of the terror groups' major strong holds. troops making a major push this week with the help of u.s. led air strikes. more than is hundred homes have been burned to the ground by a wildfire in southern australia. thousands of people forced to evacuate. no one has been hurt or killed. but 100 homes have been destroyed. the wildfire sparked by a
5:25 am
lightning strike could burn for weeks. ed over to you. >> the nba using the popularity of christmas day games to air controversial antigun violence ads like this one. >> i heard about a shooting involving a 3-year-old girl over the summer. my daughter reilly is that age. >> there was a point when i felt that you was going to die. >> my parents used to always say bullet doesn't have a name on it. >> uses some of the league's top players steph curry and others there. funded by michael bloomberg's antigun organization every town for gun safety. is this the right platform for these ads? here now to debate it is the founder of gun owners of america larry platt and former envelope player. welcome to you both and merry christmas. >> merry christmas. >> i wonder what is your issue with nba -- you support the second amendment. why can't nba players express their first amendment rights to speak out? >> well, i think they are very welcome to speak their
5:26 am
mind but they shouldn't be surprised if some of their fans aren't going to be that pleased and decide they don't want to subsidize opinions that don't agree with their's. movie stars have done this and there is a lot of hypocrisy when these kind of folks do this because they live in a protected environment, unlike most of us who don't have guards at home. don't have guards at the office. we just have to take care of ourselves. >> we have been asking for viewer comments. i want to bring chris in by getting one of those comments. tom wrote in the nba on guns is like the wwe against bullying. i bet if a lot of those players don't have guns themselves they have body guards who do. you just heard larry make that point. a lot of these players are express their own second amendment rights. some of them have guns there have been infamous incidents in fact in nba locker rooms with players carrying guns. >> he will with, look, i mean there is two points here. there is the issue of addressing gun control but then there is also the issue
5:27 am
of addressing gun violence and those are two completely different things. we are not going to agree on gun control. there is staunch second amendment, you know, advocates. i'm one of them. and then there is peoplen othe other side. but we can all agree that limiting gun violence is the most important thing. i'm a huge advocate of the nba and particularly players in this regard stepping in to this role because of their appeal to the itemmographic susceptible to gun violence. 76% of the nba is black americans. and black americans are twice as likely to die from gun violence. it's the right thing for the nba to do. i'm proud they are doing it i think it should be a precedent for other leagues to do so. >> chris, i get it. younger itemmographic reaching out to younger kids as well. should it be on christmas day. what is seen clearly as a political message? >> you can look at it as a political lesson. i look at it of addressing gun violence. this is like abortion.
5:28 am
you are pro-life or mow choice. but can agree we want to limb limit the number of unwanted pregnancies. instead of focusing on gun control focus on gun violence. >> it sounds like a fair point that people can certainly have and do have their second amendment rights. but if nba players want to reach out particularly to young african-americans and say let's stop gun violence, un'ed, unneeded gun deaths, you can exercise your second amendment rights. but let's cut down on the violence. what's wrong with that? >> well, my guns are perfectly nonviolent. it would seem to me that maybe a more productive area of pursuit would be that of anger management. we have got young people who see all kinds of media where people losing control of themselves is never censored. it's always glorified. this culture of violence
5:29 am
that surrounds them either in reality or especially in unreality in the media. so, let's go after some anger management and leave our guns alone. we may need our guns for people who didn't take proper anger management forces. >> chris, i'm going to give you the last word. >> look, disarmed america is subservant america. i agree you should leave our guns alone. focus on gun violence particularly with the nba players and appeal they have to the demographics susceptible to gun violence is the right message. it needs to continue. because at some point it will resonate. even if it resonates with just one it's worth it. >> chris and larry, appreciate you both expressing your views. we have been getting a lot of viewer comments. friends@foxnews.com. >> thank you. a lunch lady is fired for giving a hungry student a free meal. this really happened in america. she is speaking out in her first national interview right here on "fox & friends." hear from her next.

lee carter from miss alan ski and partners put it to the dial test. i want to talk a little bit about hillary clinton in the last democratic debate. i have been covering her. she was in new hampshire. she had this little joke at the end may the force be with you. let's play that clip and we will talk about it. >> but as president i will spend even more time thinking about the future of all the kids and the grandchildren in this country because i want to make sure every single child has a chance to live up to his or her god-given potential. if you will join me in this campaign, we will make that a mission. thank you, good night and may the force be with you. >> so she had a little fun there. but that was her closing statement. and it seems to me democrats loved it but, boy, the middle of the country and republicans not so much. >> not so much. you think one of the things that people say is they trust they don't trust her authenticity.
5:46 am
is she really real? >> tries to do clever things. it's a ploy. pr stunt trying to show herself to be human when she is not republicans and independence are tracking more with republicans now dialed it down. >> but your dials and i have seen this in other clips but in that one in particular. democrats love it. so, is it showing us what you would expect she is wrapping up the democratic nomination she might have real problems in the general election with this same kind of message. >> absolutely. i think she has got to find a way to show her ho she is in a credible authentic way with people who might not like her right now she hasn't found that balance yet with her campaign. >> a lot of people talking about concerns about terror. president obama has tried in some ways to down play that and blamed it on cable news pumping it up. he has tried to come up with his latest version of an isis strategy. you put it to the test. let's watch that and we'll talk on the other side.
5:47 am
this is not an organization that can destroy the united states. this is not a huge industrial power that can pose great risks to us incity tubervillely or systematic way but they can hurt us and they can hurt our people and our families. i understand why people are worried. the most damage they can do though is if they start changing how we live and what our values are. >> as someone who has covered the president a long time he was going on in a way with npr how did he do with voters? >> he didn't do well with independents and republicans. he did just fine with democrats. although it was a flat line there. >> not good for a democratic president. >> not. i think what people want to hear now is strength. in some ways he has his truth the american people have theirs. the only thing that matters right now is the american people. what i would say to the president as he is trying to
5:48 am
lead. i would suggest i understand your concern. that got buried toward the end of his message. here is what we are going to do about it. let's go on. let's move forward. by trying to say this isn't an issue. he is diminishing what the american people feel and i think it's really important that he as a leader reassures the american people that they are safe and that i understands why they are concerned. >> let's get to donald trump because a lot of pundits have been saying his attacks on hillary clinton are going to back fire. you put it to the dial. watch. hillary, that's not a president. she ♪ taking us -- everything involved in hillary is losses. let's take a look. even her race to obama, she was going to beat obama. i don't know who would be worse. i don't know. how does it get worse? but she was going to beat -- she was favored to win and she got [bleep]. i mean, she lost. >> i you think you see the dials now. we didn't have them because we had to bleep out that one word that's become controversial. but the point is among
5:49 am
democrats he flopped. but it seems like independents and republicans loved it. >> this is something that's really really fascinating to me. you can see the lines there, republicans were all the the way to the top, so were independents and the dial didn't even drop when he said the word shlung. i think it's important that trump's support is stronger than anyone is suggesting. people, i think, in some ways are embarrassed to admit that responding to him. he doesn't use political nuances. he says what he means he seems authentic to people. and gives voice to people who think these things. people admission him, understand he is giving voice to people who don't feel like they have a vice right now. >> independents giving him an a like that wondering if a general election he might do better than a lot of pundits are saying right now. got to go. we appreciate it. it was one of the most

5:54 am
than 2.2 million firearm background checks and on black friday alone, a record of 185,000 processed. one small business owner says business is booming, particularly among women. so why are women choosing to arm themselves now? joining us now to talk about it is the owner of the well-armed woman, carrie lightfoot. thanks for being with us. >> you bet. good morning. >> 74% of retailers noted an increase. and 85% saw an increase in hunting. what have you noticed that your store in particular? >> boy, we've been busy, actually, since we started in 2012. but in the last month, we have had just an explosion of growth, where we're up about especially% over the -- 138% since november. >> folks in support of guns believe they are the ultimate equalizer for women if there happens to be a burglar, if they're trying to protect their family. self defense is a big reason. what are some of the other reasons that women are buying guns? >> you know, it is -- we're
5:55 am
burdened with that fear of our own self protection, just because we're naturally the target of most violent crimes. so we already have that anxiety. now coupled with terrorist activities and our fears of that happening here at home, and the threat of future gun legislation, i think really has women digging deep into their hearts and making the decision of whether or not they could use a firearm, and i think they're just stepping into taking charge of their own self protection. >> but those of gun -- supporting gun control, would say, you know, maybe women are scared of having a firearm in the house. they're scared of a child getting their hands on them and having a terrible accident. what types of safeguards are in place? >> well, i mean, first of all, that really is a frustrating message, because women are perfectly capable of taking care of themselves. and that's really pushing the victim hood on to women. so i really kind of rebuke that statement that women are weaker and more afraid and more likely
5:56 am
to get hurt with the right training and the right tools, we are more than capable to take care of ourselves. and women take gun ownership seriously. this is not a casual decision for them. things like safety and storage and how to move through their lives with a firearm, whether with children or in other situations they take every precaution and they're really anxious to learn and make sure they're responsible gun owners. >> yeah. just being responsible gun owners, exactly. and getting the proper training, which you actually help women do, as well. in your store, what are you noticing are the most popular items among women? >> well, it's really exciting to see so many women carrying concealed. carrying their firearms on their body. which is the safest and the best location for it, because we have easy access to it. so holsters are the big seller at the well-armed woman, and we design holsters specifically for women and for their bodies. because we're curvier, we have some different challenges than men do. and during the holiday season, conceal/carrie purses.

6:02 am
several homes flattened trees torn from the ground, following a tornado in the birmingham area. >> a draw, like a draw through the house, and everybody said tornado! run to the bathroom, running over each other. >> and massive flooding leading to raging rivers in creeks after storms dumped at least 7 inches of rain. the fast-rising water shutting down roadways and stranding drivers. >> let's check in with janice dean, tracking the storms all morning. the news has just been very difficult for over christmas. more than a dozen deaths because of all of this. >> and unfortunately, we have more of the same. even a more powerful storm that is taking shape across the plain states. let's get to it. first of all, your temperatures. one of the major ingredients we need for severe weather is a clash of temperatures. and we certainly have that. look at this. 65 in atlanta, 52 in new york. we set records across the eastern seaboard for the highest temperatures we have ever seen in history.
6:03 am
over christmas eve and christmas day. and then behind it, very cold air. some of the coldest air of the season. so the wind chill, minus 13 in rapid city and single digits in a lot of the rockies and the northern plains. okay. so this is our new system. doesn't look too much right now, but as we get through the afternoon, into tomorrow and monday, things start to crank up. and this origin of the storm comes from the southwest. >> so you're going to see snow, you're going to see a mixture of freezing rain and/or sleet. and heavy rain. we saw incredible amounts of flooding over the last couple days and more of the same as we could see 8 to 12 inches of heavy rain over the next 48 hours. and also, 18 to 24 inches of snow. between that the mixture of ice and blizzard conditions on top of that. future radar, starting to crank up. this evening, overnight tonight into sunday, be aware. be weather aware. especially if you live across the central u.s. we're going to see that mixture of sleet, freezing rain is going to be difficult if not impossible to travel this weekend in some of the areas.

millions of people affected. so, again, you want to be making sure that you're listening to all of your weather forecasts over the next 48 hours. and there's your forecast precipitation. incredible amounts of rain here. and incredible amounts of snow with over 2 feet in some regions, and the blizzard conditions really from the southwest to the midwest. also want to touch upon the severe threat today. we could see tornadoes again across these vulnerable areas of the mississippi river valley. the tennessee river valley. and that's going to continue tomorrow. and then, of course, the blizzard. so this is a big deal, one of the biggest storms we have seen, really this season all year. people need to be on alert, because a lot of travelers, of course, trying to get home. back to you. >> all right, janice, thank you. some other stories making headlines. we start with this fox news alert. an out of control wildfire forcing evacuations north of los angeles. parts of highway 101 and the pacific coast highway shut down after the fire exploded overnight. from 250 acres to more than 900.

6:07 am
say i'm just going to spend the evening with my family? >> not really. not when you're running for president. certainly as a u.s. senator, congressman, those larger offices. if you're going to do something, the traditional way to do it, you'll go help out at a foot pantry, homeless shelter. do something more philanthropic instead of kind of hanging back and hammering everybody. but that's donald trump. >> jeb bush has to find a way to respond. >> he just d. he just responded. >> we got a phone call. >> yeah. you heard it t. >> what did he tell you? >> he said he's watching us, and he thinks we're doing a great job. and -- >> i'm not sure he thinks i'm doing a great job. last hour -- must put me on the naughty list. >> said i'm doing a great job. >> oh. >> he said you stink and i'm doing a great job. he actually called to wish us and my family a merry christmas. obviously, he's running hard in new hampshire. we had the no bs backyard barbecue and over 350 people. he came in and was on fire. >> how does he try to fix this campaign? because, look, donald trump has dominated the campaign from the beginning.
6:08 am
donald trump talks about the polls, he dominates. also the conversation, whether on twitter, fox, other networks, how does jeb bush, you know him, he just called you. >> he says he's a tortoise. >> it's not just jeb bush. other candidates have the same concerns. you see in the newspaper how twice as much coverage that donald gets. you guys are having him on tomorrow via phone. there is a different standard, and he is donald trump, the apprentice, so he has a larger bully pulpit. that being said, i think jeb and others don't think it's over tomorrow. and quite frankly, it's not over tomorrow. they have the ability to continue to move forward. and jeb has the resources to do that. >> well, we also got a chance to -- we were on twitter, social media, as well. we all got to spend some time with our family. and i know you brought in pictures that are fun. >> i'm going to show a couple photos of my husband and i. this is our very first christmas together. and our dog baxter. >> that's a hallmark card.
6:09 am
>> thank you. >> yes, hallmark. my husband about killed me when i bought a selfie stick. but it comes in handy. >> and that's not your husband. >> no, that's our dog. and probably our favorite moment of the morning. we put some kibble in the bottom of this box and he tore into a couple gifts. but that was at the very beginning of the morning, so then every other gift we opened he thought were also for him. >> this is my wife shirley and son patrick and daughter mila, and we had a wonderful event a couple months ago where one of scheurlely's sisters emily had a new baby, everett. and i teased this is the cutest baby in the world and i know everybody rolled their eyes. but look at this picture. he's in lake tahoe. and i promise you -- >> awww! >> and his mom emily and dad jay were there. nobody hurt taking this picture. >> he looks so hope. >> safe and sound. but how awesome is that photo? i love that photo. everett. >> making a know angel. >> what did you do, scott? >> it actually, i have -- we did a lot of things.
6:10 am

6:11 am
>> be careful. we got the video? >> and they're all laughing. no sign of concern or anything. >> it's the dismount that is hard when you're trying to get off. rick reichman had one here a couple weeks ago and i tried it out and he told me when i got on, let's plan your dismount and we didn't and i get cocky and i'm singing and dancing as i'm going. and then i tried to get off, he didn't help me, because i didn't ask him to. >> you deserved it. >> i busted my butt. and i mooned him. >> oh, boy. we were not expecting that. >> no. no. so we don't -- and then he took the darn thing home. i was hoping you guys could make a fool of yourselves too. >> the problem is if you have a dad bod, you're less likely to balance the thing and that's why you fall. >> a lot of airlines have banned them anyway, over safety concerns. so if you got one, you're hanging out at grandma's house hopefully you're driving home and not flying home. >> keep the photos and videos coming at fox news.com. a lot more news this hour. he ripped the obama

6:15 am
listen, he's a politician turned poet. senator tim scott spoofing a christmas classic to slam president obama's gitmo transfers. >> he writes, twas the night before christmas when all through the white house, the president was transferring terrorists as quiet as a mouse. the terrorists were nestled all snug in their beds while visions of returning to isis danced in
6:16 am
their heads. joining us now to share the rest is south carolina senator tim scott. senator scott, i had no idea you had had this writing talent. you had this ability that you're a poet and you didn't even know it. >> well, at least you rhyme. some of mine did not. tell you the truth, i have a very creative staff, and when presented with the opportunity to bring attention during this legislative lull, i thought it would be very important for us to make sure that the cover of darkness was not used again by this administration to do things we know the disagree with. if you think back to the recess appointments, the supreme court ruled unconstitutional. the fact of the matter is, the president consistently uses that lull to do things that are inconsistent with what i think is in the best interest of the average person and average place in this country. >> senator scott, as you know, in recent testimony on the hill, the president's own attorney general, laurietta lynch, said that current law does not allow him to act within his executive
6:17 am
authority to close down gitmo. a., are you concerned he will try anyway, and b., is there any sort of reasonable compromise in the new year that both sides can come together to say, look, let's protect the country, but let's finally do something about gitmo. >> i certainly agree with the attorney general's opinion, that this is, in fact, something the president cannot do. unfortunately, in his last press conference at the end of the year, president said himself that he was still looking for ways to close gitmo. it would be an uphill battle. i want to make sure that that hill is as high as possible. the fact of the matter is, the president asked the military to bring back a cost evaluation or estimation of what it would cost to close gitmo are and do it again some place in america. the cost came back over $500 million. so the real alternative for us, keeping americans safe, and keeping these enemy combatants from going back in the field, as we have seen with at least one enemy combatant held here at gitmo, going back to al qaeda to become a leader.
6:18 am
the only way to do both is to keep guantanamo bay open. it is surrounded by desert, oceans and there's no way to get there other than to intentionally arrive there. but it would take a true act to make that happen. so it is a safe location for the enemy combatants. our guards have done a fantastic job. 250 incidents of violence against our guards without a single act of retaliation. we find ourselves having these enemy combatants at the one location on earth where they are safe, our military officers are safe, and the american public is safe. >> senator scott brown here, it's good to see you, and merry post christmas to you and your family. >> thank you. >> one of the concerns i have -- i've been to gitmo. i saw khalid sheikh mohamed through the one way mirror glass and they do a great job. it's there for a reason. and two issues. the fact that -- is there a concern by you and the other members of your caucus that if you bring them to the united
6:19 am
states, they're going to get rights potentially that they're not otherwise entitled to, number one. number two, why don't you in fact -- why doesn't somebody in the caucus or somebody outside go to court right now and get an injunction to prohibit him from bringing these people into the united states, and/or closing gitmo? because you're right. the number one issue is the safety and security of these people and not giving them rights they're not entitled to. >> absolutely. no doubt. i had the opportunity to go down to gitmo, guantanamo bay with kelly ayotte, former prosecutor, who certainly shares your concerns with expanding the rights of those enemy combatants held there. the reality of it is we can solve the problems by making sure not a single one of those individuals steps ground -- steps on our soil. if we do that, we're in a far better position. i think we can make that happen. and the fact of the matter is also that when you look at the current law, the president would have to violate the law. we are a country of laws. we must reinforce this notion of
6:20 am
the rule of law. every single american, including the president of the united states, has to obey the laws of this country. if that is the case, we won't have a problem. he has intimated he's looking for ways to work around it. >> an important debate for the american people over this holiday season. senator tim scott, thanks for joining us. merry christmas. look forward to having you back in the new year. >> merry christmas. >> thank you. they're one of the hottest christmas gifts, but drones can be dangerous. what you need to know before you fly yours. well, not get it stuck in the tree like i did. >> a homecoming surprise with a special twist for one grandma. >> oh, my god! >> she was not reacting to the drone that flew into scott brown's christmas tree. a brand-new grandchild also showed up at the door. the entire family. there they are. the happy family joins us next.

6:26 am
but then the payoff for you and the joy you're feeling right now. >> okay, yeah. i mean, adoption, it -- if you don't know anything about it, it is a long, drawnout process. it's not just something you sign up to do. it takes a big heart. you have to be determined and committed to it. the process -- this is -- essentially, we have only been doing this for two months, and this is the fastest adoption process that i or anybody i know has ever seen. our -- and our adoption agency absolutely bent over backwards for us. mother goose adoptions in arizona. i could text them at 11:00 at night and they would text me back, just to make us feel better. the way it went, i posted on facebook saying my wife and i have always wanted to do this, and if you know anybody who wants an adoptive family, let me know. a lot of friends shared it, and then my -- a wife an old buddy that i was stationed with in germany got to me and said hey, i think we might have a match. and then so just talking to her, our birth mother, we absolutely love her to death. she has been -- she has given us
6:27 am
a gift we can never repay. and as far as i'm concerned, she is family forever. we're going to do open adoption. >> that's great. >> but the payoff is, you know -- our daughter, we could not be happier. we have absolutely -- it is the best thing that has ever happened to me or my wife. >> gosh, just a big congratulations to both of you. and you know, when you choose a child, it's a different process, too. and it shows how big of a heart that you really do have. eva, are you surprised by the reaction that this has gotten? i mean, it's not just your family and friends who thinks this is cool. now you're on "fox & friends weekend." >> it's unreal. it's just unreal. there are no words to describe how people have responded to the video. and i just pray that everybody who has a child can love her or him as much as we love lilly and our kids and grandkids. >> eva, we know your new year's

hey, everybody. 32 minutes after the hour. did you get a gift that you didn't like for christmas? well, don't stress. hundreds of post christmas shoppers will be heading back to stores today to return the unwanted gifts. >> garrett joins us live from outside a walmart in washington, d.c. good luck to you, garrett. how is it going? >> reporter: good morning. i've got to tell you, if you were lucky enough to get another sweater to add to your collection for next year's christmas parties, then you will be in luck, because if it happened to be the wrong size,
6:33 am
color or, i don't know, century, you will not be alone today. in fact, the national retailers' association federation, rather, estimates nearly 40% of shoppers returned at least one holiday gift last year. of and that number is expected to be even higher this year, with the growth of online shopping. return policies will vary, from store to store. but the federation recommends these few steps to help stroma line the process. make sure items are in the original packing. keep the tags in place on clothing and shoes. and bring along a receipt if you have it. and folks aren't just returning gifts today. some are calling the day after christmas the new black friday. two out of every three people are planning to do some sort of shopping today. that's more than both black friday and cybermonday, according to a survey by american express. there are some deals to be had. especially if you're looking to fill out your winter wardrobe. retailers in much of the country have had a hard time selling their cold gear, thanks to this
6:34 am
unusually warm winter. and now they're looking to clear out inventory and make room for new lines they're bringing in at the start of the new year. and that means heavy, steep discounts for all of us. back to you all much. >> thank you so much. hope everybody saved their receipts. >> yeah, just so no. and we're talking about basically millions and millions of dollars in actual returns. which i find pretty -- i think it's maybe billions. i saw a number, $40 billion. but when do we just stop shopping and hang out and relax? >> yeah. it would be nice to just spend time with the family. >> i'm a guy, i'm sorry. i'm a guy. ed, you're outside. what are you doing? >> well, it's interesting. we have about 1 million drones we're giving as gifts this christmas. it's nl media quickly filled up with videos like this. >> ow! [ laughter ] >> you okay? >> and while these videos of drone crashes could be funny to
6:35 am
some, there are serious rules and regulations you need to know before you take one out for a spin. so it's interesting, because here to tell us more about it is the president of the drone user group network, steve cone. merry christmas. >> thank you. >> if you get one of these as a gift, what are the rules? >> rules are, it dpenlds a lot on the size and scale you get. there are very small ones like we saw in our it tv story a moment ago. but sizes like this, where you're flying outdoors, basically you want to be no more than 400 feet, and you cannot fly -- >> above and below. >> and you cannot fly near an airport. five miles from an airport, as a hobbyiest, you're not meant to fly over people or property. and you're meant to adhere to community-based organizations' rules, like the drone user group network or academy of air naughtics. >> you have people not falling the rules near the white house, it's a no-no. >> that's right. and that's more ignorance than
6:36 am
it is any kind of malicious intent. the technology is so new, that the regulations in many ways are outdated. >> we can't fly these right around here. >> no, that's right. >> but if you get one as a gift, how do you operate them and sort which are the best ones? >> the best -- i've really kind of culled the best here. my opinion and the opinion of our group is that spend a little more money and get something that's fully featured. these all have gps units, they have telemetry systems. they have software packages that enable you to basically make this a flying camera. >> so give an idea. right in here there is an iphone 6. >> let's use this. >> you have basically an ipad or some sort of a tablet. >> tablet device. >> how do you do that? >> this -- i'm actually paired with this right now. so if you were to watch -- sure, you can just -- so i've got a stabilized camera here. what i'm doing is i have a full control of not only the
6:37 am
aircraft, but the camera. i know my distance from home. i know my altitude, my air speed. i actually can pull up a gps map and know exactly where i am in the sky. oftentimes, people run into trouble when they lose sight of their aircraft. a lot of it has to do with just being oriented properly. this is an -- has no tail, no nose. so as it flies away, you don't know what's front and back and you lose it. >> quick thing. >> sure. >> give us a couple ideas what brands are out there, people don't know, there is a phantom. >> that's right. dji is probably the market leader. these are both dji products. this is more of a pro sumer model. this is a solo. they're on par with dji and certain technology. but the key that both of these manufacturers -- why i'm so keen on them, they actually have dji and vdr have gps fencing. geo fencing to prevent from you flying near the airport. >> and the faa is looking at new regulations. >> that's right.
6:38 am
they've had a registration system set up so if you get your new drone, you go right to registration, it costs you $5, you get it refunded in the first month. >> great. >> as a grace period and basically it keeps you a little more honest. it gives you a little more skin in the game. >> we need to be honest. steve cohen. a big crowd out here. we'll send it back to you. >> quite a crowd out there. ed, thank you so much. 38 minutes after the hour. some other stories we're following now. these headlines. and this is something we have been talking about for days. an idaho cafeteria worker who lost her job after giving a 12-year-old who was hungry, a student, a free meal. now she's sharing her story. speaking out earlier on "fox & friends" saying she's devastated. >> i could understand if they would have written me up or, you know, given me disciplinary action, but i didn't think they would fire me over there. i would do it again. i would feed any baby that's hungry. >> an online petition has been started to get her job back.
6:39 am
it has 100,000 signatures. the school says they offered to give her job back but she says that's not true. an australian man barely makes an escape after his car explodes not once but twice and it's all caught on camera. the car catching on fire just moments after leaving a gas station. witnesses say the man ran from his car with his legs on fire. the explosion sending small pieces of metal more than 600 feet into the air. authorities say the driver escaped with extensive burns. and a new york firefighter risks everything to save a 16-year-old girl from her burning home on christmas morning. yonkers firefighter danny lee, who is also an iraq war veteran, says the girl woke up out of a dead sleep to smoke just filling her apartment, pretty much completely. when arriving on to the scene, he was able to get to her bedroom, pulled off his own breathing mask and put it on her, which saved her life.
6:40 am
>> you see a 16-year-old girl hanging out of the window, you've got to get to her and you've got to get her out of the apartment. we were happy to have the opportunity to, you know, get someone's 16-year-old daughter home for christmas. >> the teenager was taken to the hospital. but will be okay. no word yet on what started that fire. those are your news headlines. donald trump has dominated the discussion since he entered the presidential race. >> i will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and i will have mexico pay for that wall. >> but listen, is it on my top political story of the year? i'm going to reveal it next. >> that's right. and the most popular baby names of the year have been revealed. is yours at the top of the list? >> but first, let's check in with neil cavuto. >> gas is under $2 a gallon. probably won't be more gifts under the tree, though.

why not? and you -- oh, get this, the irs is revoking passports on those americans who owe back taxes. but not on americans trying to hook up with terrorists. sounds weird. does it make sense to you? see you soon. 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?

and some quick end of the year headlines for the fourth time, serena williams has been named the associated press female athlete of the year. she nearly became the first tennis player in more than a quarter century to complete the grand slam, winning the australian open, french open and wimbledon before losing in the u.s. open finals here in new york. and royalty wins it this year. charlotte was the top girls' baby name for 2015. britain's new princess charlotte set the trend. and amelia came in second, followed by ava. on the boys' side, ezra, followed by asher and atticus.
6:45 am
i don't see scott on that list. i'm disappointed. >> i would love to meet remember serena williams. what an amaze athlete. when she lost, i thought can she get there again. i'm a big fan. and wish her well. >> always looking back at the big sports moments of the year. right now we're looking at the big political moments. you have your top five. and the fifth one, we're going to go 5-1. the fifth is the senate is working again. >> harry reid was the worst majority leader in the history of our country i think in the last 100 years. mitch mcconnell, whether you like him or not, has taken over and allowed for the senate to start working again having everybody's amendments, go through the regular order and process. so the democrats and republicans actually have a say, which is pretty unbelievable. so it is working again. and i think it's critical to retain the senate, which the democrats want back. >> interesting, because donald trump, who is your next story, is sort of not running against the senate, but running against washington. and both parties, frankly.
tv-commercial
6:46 am
and folks like mitch mcconnell are not exactly buddy buddy. >> they will be, because if he is president, he'll have to work with the senate, especially if we retain the senate. can you imagine working with chuck schumer? with all due respect, he would be like another harry reid rein car natured. that being said, donald trump, i think we have all talked about it right now. the staying power of donald trump, and the fact that he's there, he's leading, continuing to lead. and even if he makes what we call faux pas and mistakes, doing very well. >> we've got some clips, too. some of the big political highlights from donald trump. look at this. >> i will build a great, great wall on our southern border, and i will have mexico pay for that wall. he's not a war hero. he's a war hero because he was captured. i like people that weren't captured, okay? i hate to tell you. donald j. trump is calling for a total and complete shutdown of muslims entering the united states, until our country's
