3:00 am
debate. >> but it trended. >> good. maybe too little too late, though. >> one of the most talked about moments from the main debate and then senator ted cruz also there as well. >> thank you, clayton. >> thanks, clayton. >> and thanks, everyone for joining us today. "fox & friends" starts right now. good morning, everybody. it's friday, january 29th, 2016. i'm sandra smith. the gop candidates going head to head in the hawkeye state last night without donald trump. >> i'm a maniac, and everyone on this stage is stupid, fat and ugly. now that we've gotten the donald trump portion out of the way -- >> so which candidate came out on top? we will discuss and analyze. >> and one thing the candidates did agree on last night, that america needs a different kind of hope and change. >> that's the kind of leader we need in the white house.
3:01 am
stop the washington bull and let's get things done! >> you'll see no bull here this morning. so did this message resonate with the voters? stay tuned. all right, peter, i don't know what rundown you looked at, i have plenty on both sides. there were lighter moments last night, like, for example -- >> to get the information from hillary clinton, you need to get a subpoena from the fbi. >> i think bernie sanders is a good candidate for president -- of sweden. >> we have all the stuff you might have missed last night. an hour because you had to get up and watch us today. let me remind you the morning started better with friends. how you guys feeling this morning, by the way? >> i'm feeling good. there is a blizzard of news coming out yesterday, whether it's trump on stage five minutes across town or it was the
3:02 am
two-hour stage show at night, or the pre-show. >> there's the big debate, you're looking at it from last night in des moines, iowa. the biggest moment from last night's debate. >> how do you sum it up? fox correspondent john roberts. hey, john. >> brian and sandra, good morning. it's a big responsibility i take seriously. no question the overall tone of last night's debate was different, no personal insults being hurled around the stage. a lot of sharp exchanges but all of them on policy, so ted cruz did his best to fill the vacuum left by donald trump's absence. >> senator cruz, before we get to the issues, let's address the elephant not in the room tonight. donald trump has chosen not to attend this evening's presidential debate. what message do you think that sends to the voters of iowa? >> let me say i'm a maniac, and everyone on this stage is stupid, fat and ugly.
3:03 am
and ben, you're a terrible surgeon. now that we've gotten the donald trump portion out of the way -- >> it's not about donald trump. barack obama wants a mayor to be like the rest of the world. we don't want to be like the rest of the world. we want to be the united states of america. >> as expected, the debate became the ted cruz and marco rubio show, centering on which one was more centered on immigration. >> he told the people of florida, if you elect me, i will lead the fight against amnesty. when i ran in texas, i told the people in texas, if you elect me, i will lead the fight on amnesty. we both made identical promises. but when we came to washington, we made a different choice. >> you talked up the immigration policy. then you said on the issue of people here illegally, we can reach a compromise. then on the committee, you said,
3:04 am
i want to bring people out of the shadows. now you want to trump trump on immigration. >> trump trump on immigration. by the time rubio and cruz got through the immigration spat, the room hung thick with parliamentary procedure, which as he has done several times in the past, governor chris christie stepped forward to try to clear. >> i feel like i need -- i feel like i need a washington english dictionary converter, right? it's perfectly legal in this country to change your mind, but when you're a governor, you have to admit it. you can't hide behind parliamentary tricks. that's the difference and that's the kind of leader we need in the white house. stop the washington bull and let's get things done! >> if history is any guide, a lot could change between now and the monday caucuses. it tends to be very fluent here in iowa in the last 72 to 96 hours. will marco rubio continue to rise in the polls? will trump's absence last night hurt him? we will find out monday night. brian, peter? >> quick question. are you using a heater or is it
3:05 am
that nice down there? what happened? >> it's cold out this morning. it's probably 30 degrees. it's not quite as balmy as it was yesterday. but -- yeah, i got a heater. right here. >> i just thought he was a tough man. >> well done. appreciate it. >> thank you, john. >> what was the main difference last night? donald trump. even the way it started it was about donald trump, but overall it was not about donald trump. after the beginning, he was done. >> it became a debate about substance, and it really did focus a lot of back and forth between rubio and cruz on policy, but the focus a lot of times was about donald trump. in this particular debate, however, the focus shifted to the other side of the aisle. there was a lot more focus on clinton and bernie sanders. here's what they had to say. >> if i'm a nominee, i will unite this party and we will defeat hillary clinton and we will turn this country around once and for all after seven years of the disaster that is
3:06 am
barack obama. >> to get the information from hillary clinton, you need to get a subpoena from the fbi. >> for her convenience, she put america's secrets at risk for her convenience. she put american intelligence officers at risk for her convenience. when i take her on, i guarantee one thing. she will never get within 10 miles of the white house. the day for the clintons in public housing are over. >> i think bernie sanders is a good candidate for president -- of sweden. we don't want to be sweden. we want to be the united states of america. and hillary clinton lied to the families of those four brave americans who lost their life in benghazi. and anyone who lies to the families of americans who have died in the service of this country can never be commander in chief of the united states. >> some good exchange there, and also some of the big exchanges of the night were about the number one concern of the american voter which is keeping america safe. some real substance on that issue, and in particular, an
3:07 am
exchange between marco rubio and senator paul. you have to hear this. listen. >> radical muslims and radical islam is not just hate talk, it's hate action. they blow people up. look what they did in san bernardino. we must keep america safe from this threat, and yes, when i am president of the united states, there is someplace in this country where radical jihadists are threatening the united states. we will go after them and if we catch them alive, they are going to guantanamo. >> do you agree with that? we're going to close down mosques? >> i think it's a huge mistake to say we're going to close down mosques. but i don't think marco rubio can have it both ways. you can't be in favor of islam if you're not for border security. >> i do believe that people who are trying to come to the united states, this country has a right to know who they are and why they are coming.
3:08 am
>> i think overall two candidates benefited the most with donald trump not there, rand paul and jeb bush. i just think physically and in their voice, they seem much more relaxed. >> which is surprising, because the prediction was that it was going to benefit chris christie the most. that didn't exactly happen. we're going to talk to -- >> i also thought that the guy that got the most time and the numbers bared out, i felt like rubio was all over the debate and he was at 30 minutes 30 seconds. he got the most time. second was cruz just second behind. th and i didn't hear much from kasich. >> the bully wasn't in the room for rand and jeb, and i think they felt more free. a lot of elbows coming at rubio and cruz. they're both obviously very seasoned debaters. that exchange about immigration, chris christie also talked about
3:09 am
law enforcement versus immigration. we'll have him on the program later and ask about his take also. >> what do you think? who won, who lost, who was the biggest surprise? overall i thought it was a deeper conversation but it was also predictable. i felt like i could finish half of their sentences and conclusions to the same question. >> true, but don't you think it reflected the appetite or the sentiment of the american people? keep america safe, immigration here at home, isis. i think it really was reflective of what people were thinking about right now. >> and everyone was wondering where mr. donald trump was. he was down the street holding his own event on a stage which, by the way, he was later joined by a couple of the candidates, rick santorum, mike huckabee, but here's donald trump at his own rally in des moines. >> i didn't want to be here, i have to be honest. i wanted to be about five minutes away. you have to stick up for your rights. when you're treated badly, you have to stick up for your rights. [ cheers and applause ] >> you have to do it. >> evidently it was down to the
3:10 am
last minute whether he was going to appear or not. according to our own report on our website, roger ails had three brief conversations with donald trump leading up to this. trump turned around and said, i need $5 million for my foundation to appear and they said, we're not going to do that, so he went across the street. i think he knows he could have been there. >> he made that a big gamble, he made that choice. we don't have any sense how that played out so far. it was the elephant not in the room as meghan so aptly said to begin with, but the debate really moved on. so the question is, where are iowa voters? are they focused on trump and believe it was a good decision, or are they going to be frustrated that he effectively stepped away from the last opportunity to hear from him? >> the fox polling revealing that 30% of iowa caucus goers still undecided on their candidate, so last night was a big night. >> i don't believe that. they've had candidates there for over a year knocking on every
3:11 am
door, every deli, every diner. i'm out of d words. >> a lot of iowans are probably trying to hide. there are the junkies that following it, the activists that are into it, but if you're a moderate republican, really not political, you're just now popping your head up, which is why it really was a risk, potentially. >> did anyone change their mind last night? >> i think marco rubio was really strong as he always is, ted cruz had an opportunity to separate himself, but there was so many people coming at him, i think it was a wash. a guy like chris christie did good as well. >> dr. ben carson will be joining us, jeb bush, senator rand paul, chris christie, mike huckabee. brian, could we possibly have booked a few more? >> you sound like you're bragging. >> definitely a good show. we want to get a sense of how they think they did up against those other candidates, and how it was without donald.
3:12 am
>> 11 minutes after the hour. >> coming up, it was one of the biggest moments of the night. >> but i will say this. gosh, if you guys ask one more mean question, i may have to leave the stage. >> aww. >> well, a joke that maybe didn't seem as much right away. so how did voters respond to it? we're giving the candidates the dial treatment, next. because you could save hundreds on car insurance. ah, perfect. valet parking. evening, sir. hello! here's the keys. and, uh, go easy on my ride, mate. hm, wouldn't mind some of that beef wellington... to see how much you could save on car insurance, go to geico.com. ah!

3:16 am
without donald on the stage last night, voters got to hear more from other candidates on the stage, so who resonated the most? joining us now, also lee carter with molanski & partners. great to have you this morning. >> great to be here. >> you've already had a chance to reach out to a couple thousand voters. let's start with christie who said we need someone outside of washington. >> i feel like i need a washington english dictionary converter. i mean, i heard what they both said. i saw it on video. the fact this is what makes a difference when you're a governor. you can change your mind, ted could change his mind, marco could change his mind. it's perfectly legal in this country to change your mind. but when you're a governor, you have to admit it. you can't hide behind parliamentary tricks. that's the difference and that's the kind of leader we need in the white house. stop the washington bull and let's get things done. >> he received a grade of --
3:17 am
>> an a. across the board, independents and republicans thought christie did really well last night. we might not be able to transfer votes from iowa, but any argument ever about being an outsi outsider we've seen consistently throughout this whole process absolutely resonates. >> okay, so an a for that. then you've got ted krcruz sayi he's going to leave the stage if there is another mean question towards him. listen. >> chris, i would notice the last four questions have been marco, please attack ted, jeb, please attack ted, chris, please attack ted. >> this is a debate, sir. >> no, a debate is a policy issue, but gosh, if you guys ask one more mean question, i may have to leave the stage. >> yikes, you gave this a grade of what? >> a d. voters told us this was pathetic
3:18 am
and he was on his heels all night. maybe it was because he didn't have trump to fight with and it really didn't work for him. this was his worst fight so far. >> and rubio said, i will not leave no matter what you ask me. speaking of rubio, he said whatever it took to get big votes. >> this is the lie that cruz touched on and rand echoed it. the truth is, ted cruz, do anything to get votes. >> i think we really need to pay attention to independents and the democrats. when it comes to rubio, they're over and over saying he's by far the best candidate on the republican side. >> was last night a game changer for any particular candidate? do you see voters changing their mind on anybody after last night's performances? >> trump, i think, is going to stay steady. i think rubio is going to have some improvement and movement. cruz, i don't think this is a good night for him.
3:19 am
i think it's going to give other candidates an opportunity to encroach on his popularity right now. >> you'll be back. lee carter next hour with more reaction from the candidates. coming up, rapid reaction flooding social media. what are they saying? there was one big surprise candidate who really got the internet all abuzz. who was it? we're going to tell you next. and what would you do if a masked man was trying to rob the bank that you're in. wait until you see what this guy did. when my doctor told me i have age-related macular degeneration, amd we came up with a plan to help reduce my risk of progression. and everywhere i look... i'm reminded to stick to my plan. including preservision areds 2. my doctor said preservision areds 2 has the exact nutrient formula

a teacher in the jail who they say gave massive information to the inmates, helping them escape. rovaji taught english in the jail and the ringleader was one of her students. the aftfluenza teen will be going before a texas judge today. that is the claim where couch claimed he was too rich and spoiled to know right from wrong. last night's debate was the last chance for the gop candidates to make their case before the iowa caucuses. if social media was any indicator, there may have been some surprises in store. for more on what social media had to say about last night's debate, fox & friends weekend
3:24 am
co-host and my friend. >> donald trump wasn't there, but he dominated the internet. marco rubio went after bernie sanders when people weren't sure where he was going. >> bernie sanders is a socialist. i think bernie sanders is a good candidate for president -- of sweden. we don't want to be sweden. we want to be the united states of america. >> a good tactical pause there before he delivered it. >> a little bit of that punchline with a pause. >> and ted cruz, people have saying he didn't have a good night last night. so chris wallace getting back and forth with him last night was one of the top trending moments last night on twitter as well. watch. >> chris, i would note that the last four questions have been, rand, please attack ted, marco, please attack ted, chris, please attack ted, jeb, please attack ted. let me just say this.
3:25 am
>> this is a debate, sir. >> no, a debate actually is a policy issue, but i will say this. gosh, if you guys ask one more mean question, i may have to leave the stage. >> of course, lee carter just on the show saying during her dials, that was a really bad moment for him. >> he was going for a joke, but it fell flat. if you're going to tell a joke, you better deliver it. >> just looking at the broad twitter conversation last night, this is not positive or negative, it's a mix of both in commentary. ted cruz came out on top with the most discussions on twitter, marco rubio 20%, rand paul getting in there 16%, i think because donald trump wasn't there. more air in the room. >> the top three don't surprise me, but i think marco rubio was able to be a little bit more calm and present himself. >> people jumping on google and the moderators were encouraging people to go there and search for the things talked about the most. the plan to defeat isis. which candidate came out on top
3:26 am
in discussing the plan to defeat isis? marco rubio 30% voted by google users. >> that was the main debate. >> we also had an undercar debate last night. >> and a lot of people had no idea who jim gilmore was. take a look at this on google last night. a 700% increase spiking on google when people were looking up the name jim gilmore because they simply didn't know who he was and wanted more information. >> he's breaking at the right time. i mean, you're better to break late than not break at all. >> a few days ahead of time. >> that looks like the right crest at the right time. >> 5:00 p.m., though, no one knew who he was. that's a look at social media. >> it sure was an active web last night. >> people jumping down jeb bush's throat by saying "the youtube." that was not a good moment for jeb bush. >> once in a while i call it that. coming up, it may have been
3:27 am
the dirtiest play of the game. is that high school coach trying to trick the opposing cheerleader in front of the whole crowd? the instant replay, next. look at that, it sure looks like it might be. and the candidates did a good job of playing it cool, but we have the technology to see right through their bluffs. dr. oz reveals his candidates who struck out the most, next. fact. advil pain relievers are used by more households than any other leading brand. to treat their aches and pains more people reach for advil. relief doesn't get any better than this. advil.

i kind of miss donald trump. he was a little teddy bear to me. we always had such a loving relationship in these debates and in between and the tweets. i kind of miss him. i wish he was here. everybody else was in the witness protection program when i went after him on behalf of what republican cause should be,
3:31 am
conservative principles, limited government, leading in accountability, leading by fixing things that are broken. >> was jeb able to keep his cool since the donald was not on stage last night? dr. oz tracked that and the stress levels of all the candidates with the app we've been talking about the last few weeks which uses the voice to determine stress levels. dr. oz and eric finegold who is the developer of faircare. you watched the debate? >> of course. >> the first sound bite you picked out is going to be ted cruz attacking marco rubio. >> let's go with the clip we just saw. you saw there was a little voice indulation. people have developed their own awareness of how voices affect their relationships.
3:32 am
bill reilly before the debate said it's not so much what they're saying about policies, how they're interacting with each other, it's how you look at people's stress in their voice. it's a very important message to people around you, and if you're a candidate, it's in the potential voters. >> and he can still show stress as can sarah palin. >> it's not about the vocal quality, how beautiful your voice is, how high or how low. the voice is like a mirror of your heart. >> and you saw jeb bush do what yesterday? >> so it was interesting to see that in previous events when he was attacking trump or when they were in a clash, you could see very high stress levels. this time it was the first time, i think, that when he was discussing trump or addressing trump indirectly, you could see he was completely calm, very low stress for the very first time since the bully wasn't in the room anymore. >> and he wasn't.
3:33 am
>> interestingly, since trump announced his boycott, there was no stress in his voice at all when he was attacking meghan kelly. but when he began to comment on his relationship with fox, there was stress. what does that reflect? the stakes are bigger. those are patterns we tend to see. >> you have another clip that shows rubio, i believe. >> let's take a look at ted cruz attacking marco rubio as it comes to amnesty. and this went on and on and on. >> you've been willing to say or do anything in order to get votes. ted, you worked for george w. bush's campaign. you helped design george w. bush's immigration policy. then when you got to the senate, you did an interview with cbs news, i wasn't even part of the video, where you said on the issue of people who are here illegally, we can reach a compromise. then on the committee you said, i can bring people out of the shadow. now you want to trump trump on
3:34 am
immigration. >> this is rubio first. i heard a higher pitch. >> it is a higher pitch, but with the same pitch, you can see at the very end his stress level is low, so it's not about the pitch, but it's about the topic or what is it that he was getting into. in the beginning you saw that when he was getting into the more general attack at cruz, you could see how his stress went from an easy to really intense. it was kind of a generalized attack. it wasn't on something specific with something about very much in the past, and it's interesting to see that because this kind of attack in this kind of stress show that there is more of -- i want to say more of a personal threat. he may feel more threatened by cruz on this topic. >> and this is critically important because he's sending a very subtle message. it's subconscious to us but we're actually getting that note. you saw a little arrow go back and forth like a gas tank. it went to a very intense stress level because he sees him as a
3:35 am
threat. but when he went into the argument at the end, the stress level went down. >> let's go to the other side of it. this is going to be ted cruz answering this call. >> you know, i like marco. he's very charming, he's very smooth. but the facts are simple. when he ran for election in the state of florida, he told the people of florida, if you elect me, i will lead the fight against amnesty. when i ran in texas, i told the people of texas, if you elect me, i will lead the fight against amnesty. we both made the identical promises. but when we came to washington, we made a different choice. >> but that's where the debate happened. you saw it dropped toward the end. >> exactly. so on that note, when you see in the very beginning when he begins only to recount what happened, his stress is not very high, but you see a certain buildup. and you see the buildup really reaches the peak in this piece when he was talking about amnes amnesty, something he really cares about. when he speaks about rubio, he's
3:36 am
not really stressed, so for him, this attack is not personal. one of the things you can learn from that -- >> it is. >> it is and it isn't. that's very interesting. from what we saw, people who see the other person as a threat are much more likely to be stressed in a personal attack. people who don't see the other person as a threat are much more likely to show low stress when they talk about the other person. you see here that cruz does not get stressed when he mentions rubio. so you can learn about how he really sees -- >> these are important tools. we're sending this out to the candidates. they can see how their voice modulates and sends conscious messages out, but they can deal with the stress of being in the. >> thanks, you guys. the benefit, again, it builds awareness of what you're saying to the world even if it's not your words, it's your voice

itself messaging out things you may or may not want the world to hear, so pay attention to them. >> dr. oz and jay finegold, thank you very much. lots is going on. the culprit behind the zika virus outbreak may be a major sporting event. a speculation that the illness may have come to brazil during the world cup in 2014 where there were tens of thousands of international travelers. the world health organization warns that the virus is spreading ex ploplosivelyexplos. 31 cases have been confirmed in the united states. experts warn that the virus could continue to spread in the u.s. in areas where mosquito populations are high. a massive sinkhole opened on the 101 in oregon yesterday and continued growing. crews are now implementing a

3:39 am
>> have you ever tripped a cheerleader, maria? >> no, absolutely not. >> what did i say? case in point. >> she once tripped someone in the hallway. >> different story. let's go ahead and take a look at the weather conditions across the country, because we do want to talk about the warming trend that's in place in parts of the plains. we're looking at temperatures in the 40s, 30s and even into the 20s. the 20s isn't that warm in places like kansas city, but as we head into the afternoon hours, take a look at what happens. we're continuing to see those temperatures climbing and you could be in the 60s in places like kansas city and in the 70s very widespread and in portions of texas. warmer temperatures across the plains and that could be continuing into the weekend. temperatures across the great lakes staying chilly-like, 20s and 30s forecast. also along the great lakes and the appalachians, you are looking at snow showers later
3:40 am
today, so we'll continue to track that, but a much more massive and potent storm system out west bringing areas of rain anywhere from washington all the way down to parts of california. some flooding will be possible along the lower elevations as we're looking at several inches of rainfall in the forecast. some of the mountains out here, especially california and the sierra, you could be seeing more than two feet of snow, so excellent conditions for skiing, and of course we need that moisture in california with the ongoing drought conditions. let's go back inside. >> maria, thank you very much. 20 minutes now before the top of the hour. here's what's straight ahead on our show. how about this? a lot. 200 kids dropping to the floor suddenly passing out cold right in the middle of class. we have the details next. which candidate has the best plan to fix the va for our american heroes? we'll break it down next. ♪ i'm an american soldier, an

within the first 48 hours of symptoms and ask about prescription tamiflu. attack the flu virus at its source with tamiflu, an antiviral that helps stop it from spreading in the body. tamiflu in liquid form is fda approved to treat the flu in people two weeks of age and older whose flu symptoms started within the last two days. before taking tamiflu tell your doctor if you're pregnant, nursing, have serious health conditions, or take other medicines. if you develop an allergic reaction, a severe rash, or signs of unusual behavior, stop taking tamiflu and call your doctor immediately. children and adolescents in particular may be at an increased risk of seizures, confusion, or abnormal behavior. the most common side effects are mild to moderate nausea and vomiting. anti-flu? go antiviral with tamiflu. think of it as a seven seat for an action packed thriller.
3:44 am
now some quick headlines. no classes for one texas middle school after 179 students and teachers got sick from a possible carbon monoxide leak. many were rushed to the hospital for nausea, vomiting and headaches and at least one child became unconscious. officials looking into why the school has, well, no carbon monoxide detectors. a vak-shake-up on the new jy coastline after a sonic boom that felt like earthquakes. yeah, that will get you wondering what's going on outside. people in the area heard and felt four loud blasts 10 minutes apart. turns out an f-35c and an f-18 fighter jet from a naval base
3:45 am
were conducting just some routine tests. interesting. >> wow. 15 minutes before the top of the hour now. the no-show everyone is talking about is donald trump. he was missing from the debate stage for the first time. instead he was across town. he held a rally for veterans. >> just down the street, gop candidates like jeb bush laying out plans to help those veterans. >> peter doocy is live in washington, d.c. with all the details on that. good morning. >> good morning, sandra. at one point last night donald trump announced he wasn't going to read off a list of new polls which he does a lot at campaign rallies, but he did have a list of donations to read aloud to the 700-person crowd including a million bucks from his own checkbook and hundreds of thousands from prominent businessmen and developers to support the veterans fundraiser that he held while protesting the fox news debate. >> we just cracked, the sign was just given. we just cracked $6 million,
3:46 am
right? 6 million. we have outside a list of the organizations and folks that are going to be getting this money. we're going to divide it up and they're going to get a lot of money, everybody is going to fwet a lget a lot of money. >> across town at the fox news debate, though, the scandal at the veteran affairs department was part of the conversation with jeb bush declaring that fixing the va should be the first job of the next president. >> giving out $140 million of bonuses to veterans department employees, i will make sure that we fire the sheer incompetence inside the department of veterans affairs and we'll give veterans a choice card so they don't have to travel hours and hours for care if they want to go to their private provider. >> and trump in his event was also joined last night by the last two winners of the iowa caucuses, rick santorum and mike huckabee, which made quite a sight, because those two are still running for president but they still stood behind the podium with trump's name on it
3:47 am
in big, bold letters. >> those are the last two winners of the iowa caucuses, and after going on their debate, they showed up on donald trump's event. meanwhile, you heard we were talking about the va. >> and jeb bush laid out a very specific plan. in fact, last night he said it is his first duty if elected president to fix the va. what do you make of his plan? >> jeb bush, i think he really nailed it. he talked about accountability, firing employees, something we talked about a lot on the show. >> you can't, though. >> you can't, but he would be the first civil force necessary for that kind of accountability. he said to fix it you need choice. you need the ability for the veteran to get help from the va or elsewhere. jeb bush was the only one who answered it -- his answer was very similar to almost all the candidates. from rubio to rand to carson to
3:48 am
cruz, they're all very similar, accountability and choice. and i think that's a great contrast to bernie sanders and hillary clinton who say more government, more spending. >> the thing is, can they do it? some things will be prohibited. does this have to be a piece of legislation put on their desk? >> that legislation has already passed the house. it's pending in the senate and could get a vote. you get a new commander in chief who is willing to sign that piece of legislation into law, now you have the ability to fire those crony employees, which is all veterans really want. >> i wish we could get jeb bush to talk specifically about it. he's coming up at 7:30 this morning. we'll be able to have this very conversation with him and press him on more specifics of that plan. coming up, the biggest slams of the night went to a candidate not even standing on the stage. and guess what? it wasn't donald trump. >> let me tell you who is not qualified to be president of the united states, chris.
3:49 am
hillary rodham clinton did that to our country. she is not qualified to be president of the united states. >> strategist brad wood is here to respond, next. and can you tell what's missing from this photo? the super mistake the grounds crews made in super bowl 50 in santa clara. when heartburn hits fight back fast tums smoothies starts dissolving the instant it touches your tongue and neutralizes stomach acid at the source tum, tum, tum, tum smoothies! only from tums

3:52 am
3:53 am
there was a big night last night, the republican candidates not wasting any time going after the democratic rivals, slamming hillary clinton. >> that's right. brad woodhouse is president of correct the record, created to actually defend hillary clinton from attacks. >> yes. >> he joins us right now. brad, thanks for joining us. >> good morning. >> hey, brad. good morning. we have some sound we want you to react to. there were a number of different attacks to hillary clinton last night. the first is chris christie slamming her over her e-mail scandal. >> for her convenience, she put america's secrets at risk for her convenience. she put american intelligence officerers at risk for her convenience. she put american strategy at risk to her convenience. let me tell you who's not qualified to be president of the united states, chris. hillary rodham clinton did that to our country. she is not qualified to be president of the united states. >> brad, her excuse has been convenience.
3:54 am
why is he not right? >> well, first of all, i just got to laugh at chris christie. he came out -- a poll came out yesterday that had him 1% in the national poll. >> come on that's not what it's about. >> no, but it's true. i mean, you know, he's trolling here for attacks on hillary clinton. look, these questions have been asked and answered. you know, chris christie has his own problems with text messages that were deleted. >> hold on. have they been asked and answered? we're talking about higher level of classification than even top secret at this point and she still hasn't answered why. >> first of all, that was done retroactively. there was not one e-mail she sent or received that was classified or more than classified at the time she sent and received them. these are things that are happening well after she's left office as secretary of state. i mean, there's not a legal analyst in the country, a neutral one that believes brad, candidates on the
3:55 am
stage last night considered the e-mail scandal and many americans consider the e-mail scandal fair game when talking hillary clinton. senator paul thought it was fair game last night to hit hillary over her husband's infidelity. i want to get your take on this. >> do you think that her position as promoting women's rights and fairness to women in the workplace that if what bill clinton did any ceo in our country did with an intern, with a 22-year-old, 21-year-old intern in their office, they would be fired. they would never be hired again. she can't be a champion of women's rights at the same time she's got this that is always lurking out there, this type of behavior. i combine this also with the millions upon millions of dollars of this take -- they have taken from regimes in the middle east that treat women like cattle. >> brad, senator paul clearly going on the attack against hillary. on women.
3:56 am
>> well, look, it's insane. i mean, first breath of that answer, he said well, she should not be held accountable for anything her husband did and then went to say,but she can't run a campaign that supports women about what he did. so the answer made no sense. look, hillary clinton went to beijing in 1995 and says women rights are human rights and human rights are women's rights and women are excited about her candidacy. they're not going to hold what president clinton did in office or -- >> but she's losing momentum with the female vote so clearly the candidates are seizing on that weakness right now. >> i don't think there's any data that suggests that whatever is going on with her and women in the current polls has anything to do with president clinton. >> brad, this debate will continue. brad woodhouse, thank you for being here. >> thank you. coming up a huge show ahead.
3:57 am
jeb bush, ben carson, rand paul, mike huckabee, all are here to break down last night's action. stick with us. you don't want to miss it. the future belongs to the fast.
3:58 am
and to help you accelerate, we've created a new company... one totally focused on what's next for your business. the true partnership where people,technology and ideas push everyone forward. accelerating innovation.
3:59 am
accelerating transformation. accelerating next. hewlett packard enterprise. the wolf was huffing and puffing. like you do sometimes, grandpa? well, when you have copd, it can be hard to breathe. it can be hard to get air out, which can make it hard to get air in. so i talked to my doctor. she said... symbicort could help you breathe better, starting within 5 minutes. symbicort doesn't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden symptoms. symbicort helps provide significant improvement of your lung function. symbicort is for copd, including chronic bronchitis and emphysema. it should not be taken more than twice a day. symbicort contains formoterol. medicines like formoterol increase the risk of death from asthma problems. symbicort may increase your risk of lung infections, osteoporosis, and some eye problems. you should tell your doctor if you have a heart condition or high blood pressure before taking it. symbicort could mean a day with better breathing. watch out, piggies!
4:00 am
(children giggle) symbicort. breathe better starting within 5 minutes. call or go online to learn more about a free trial offer. if you can't afford your medication, astrazeneca may be able to help. hi, everybody. the gop candidates go head to head in the hawk eye state, but something huge was missing from the stage. >> before we get to the issues, let's address the elephant not in the room tonight. >> as you know the elephant donald trump. a no show at last night's debate. but the show must go on. you changed your position on immigration because you used to support a path to imgraig. >> do did you. >> didn't say a word about legalization. i introduced -- >> ted didn't show up for it. >> gosh f you guys say -- ask
4:01 am
one more mean question, i may have to leave the stage. >> stop the washington bull and let's get things done! >> you're not going to here a lot of polished political speech from me. but you will hear the truth. >> this is bean bag compared to what the clinton hit machine going to do to the republican nominee. >> bernie sanders is a socialist. i think he's a good candidate for president -- of sweden. we don't want to be sweden. >> well, if you missed that debate, you missed a lot. >> it was a big night last night, absolutely. the seventh debate. the guys are on their game. going back and forth. obviously donald trump not there, but a lot going on last night. >> great debate. very substantive. you know, you're a nerd over here, you love politics. you couldn't get enough of it. i think you dvr'd it and watched it again. >> right. just jumped in the shower and next thing you know you're on
4:02 am
television. >> good stuff. >> one minute after the top of the hour, a lot coming up. leefts get right to -- let's get right to it, in fact. the biggest moments from the debate. >> joining us now, senior national correspondent, john roberts live in des moines. here we are a few hours later. everyone is still talking about it. what did you make of last night? >> reporter: you know, i think sandra, for the 40% of iowans who have yet to make up or say they can still change their minds, they've got a real substantive discussion on the policy issues of the day that are facing this country. far less cage match than the other debates, though ted cruz did evoke the spirit of donald trump as the debate began. >> senator cruz, before we get to the issues, let's address the elephant not in the room tonight. donald trump has chosen not to attend this evening's presidential debate. what message do you think that sends to the voters of iowa? >> let me say i'm a maniac. and everyone on this stage is stupid, fat and ugly and ben, you're a terrible surgeon.
4:03 am
now that we've gotten the donald trump portion out of the way -- >> with donald trump off the stage last night, the spotlight fell squarely on the ted cruz/marco rubio feud. each of them trying to paint the other as a flip-flopping weakling on immigration. >> but you went -- >> i did not support amnesty. >> you said more than that. you said earned path to citizenship is a path to amnesty. >> it is. >> the amendment is 38 words, i didn't say a word about legalization. >> but the bill -- but the bill you're amending allowed citizenship and immigration. >> but the fact that it didn't fix every problem didn't mean that i supported the rest of the bill. >> reporter: and while donald trump may have hoped that by not taking center stage the rest of the candidates would engage in a circular firing squad, a certain amount of time was spent attacking the presumed
4:04 am
democratic nominee. >> if i'm the nominee, i will unite the party and we will defeat hillary clinton and we'll turn this country around once and for all after seven years of the disaster that is barack obama. >> to get the information from hillary clinton you need to get a subpoena from the fbi. she put america's secrets at risk for her convenience. she put american intelligence officers at risk for her convenience. when i take her on, i guarantee you one thing. she will never get within ten miles of the white house. the days for the clinton in public housing are over. >> reporter: the new jersey governor has a way of putting things, doesn't he? i think a number benefited from the extra oxygen that was available in the room last night. in particular, jeb bush who was able to do his favorite thing last night, talk at length about policy without insulting being hurled in his face. >> john, thank you. >> yeah, i mean it was more contemplative and i thought the guy that benefited the most was
4:05 am
rand paul. although the nsa and what he wants to do in terms of isis, in terms of -- he differs from everyone on the stage. but he was true to his school. he took his time. went back. then you had a debate, much like you would see in thought maybe a college debate club. >> yeah. even trump -- >> the way it was before, he was trying to win an argument, a argument centered around isis. with 40% of voters, up to a third of voters undecided -- >> i don't agree with that. iowa, six out of every ten have already made up their mind? four of every ten -- >> one reason they haven't made up their mind they can't decide which candidate is best to fight isis. this is a huge point in the debate last night. here's the candidates. >> i believe that the world is a safer and a better place when america is the strongest power in the world. i believe only with a strong america will we defeat this radical group isis. >> i will apologize to nobody for the vigorousness that i will fight terrorism, hunt down isis
4:06 am
and utterly and completely 'stro isis. >> the threat is islamic terrorism. we need to focus our energies there. not the broad blanket kind of statements. >> we need to develop a strategy together to take on isis. every place that it is around the world. >> we have to destroy them on the ground, in the air and with our friends in the arab world and our friends in europe. >> there's some place in this country where radical jihadists are planning to attack the united states we will go after them wherever they are. if we capture them alive they're going to guantanamo. >> they're not talking hyperbole. the front page of "the new york times" and the big question after jennifer griffin's pentagon, it's all hands on deck. we're not doing enough to stop isis is the headline as secretary ash carter was told, don't travel. we need to come one a plan to fight isis. really? you look at libya and start saying we don't have enough people on the ground in iraq and
4:07 am
syria as if it happened yesterday. >> we have been containing them for a long time. they have continued to grow. if one outlier was of course rand paul who is closer to barack obama on some of a restrained foreign policy. but a lot of republicans talking about the need to crush isis. >> i would say this. then i want your take on this. every time ted cruz brings up carpet bombing isis he sounds naive, when it comes to military warfare. no military person looks at isis and says we're going to bomb them like we did the iraqis in 1993. >> it's a desire to project strength. it's always more -- >> but you won't see them in formation, never in one area. you have to use laser focus. that's not how we do. >> brian didn't like what ted cruz had to say on that. but frank luntz sat down with his focus groupon the gop
4:08 am
candidates' focus. here it is. >> how many of you support marco rubio? three of you. how many are going home most likely to vote for rubio, raise your hands. that's the impact of a single debate. give me a word or phrase to describe rubio. >> organized. >> confident. >> presidential. >> powerful. >> prepared. >> credible. >> game changer. >> electable. >> attractive opportunist. >> you have to explain to the american people, you dialed two hours with, what did you see? >> i think he was honest, believable. he didn't berate the other candidates on the stage. he was positive. and he kind of put hillary in her spot as far as computers and benghazi. >> you're the youngest person in this room. were you able to vote in the last election? >> yes, i was. >> so this will be your second time. >> yes. >> as a 22-year-old, is it because rubio is younger than the other candidates? what attracts you to him? >> no, it's not because he's
4:09 am
younger, but aspirational. you know when he's going to do something it's what he says. he's honest. he seems to have a vision for this country. >> yeah, watching that live it was interesting to see the overwhelming response. i thought rubio did well. i wasn't prepared for that. >> well, charles krauthammer did his wrap and he said something as insightful as myself, rubio didn't have the best night tonight, it was his worst debate. >> we asked you to e-mail in or go on the facebook page and tell us who you thought performed and did the best last night. brittany said, rubio and cruz both presented their ideas and solutions well. >> and one said rand paul had a much deserved chance to speak and he's the most conservative and knowledgeable of all the candidates. >> so that's some of your opinions. we'll get through them, we're working on that right now. let's talk about what was happening across town.
4:10 am
at the exact time, despite three overtures from fox news, decided i am not coming to the debate. he wanted reportedly between 5 and $6 million of a donation to his foundation that would eventually go to wounded warriors he said. >> he tweeted out at the end of the night that he raised $6 million for this. >> which was ultimately raised toward his foundation that will be given out to groups yet to be named. it was interesting that two -- other gop presidential candidates, mike huckabee and rick santorum also showed up at the event after the first debate. and showed up with him on stage as well. so a very interesting dynamic of donald trump doing his own thing after being a no show. other candidates showing up and very interesting how the voters of iowa react to that. >> there's a debate next week, is donald trump going to that? did this work for him? we'll find out two things. did the polls work, we'll find out on monday. and did donald trump pay the price or get a boost from not
4:11 am
debating? >> and this morning we have a big lineup of candidates coming on with us. dr. ben carson, jeb bush, governor chris christie and mike huckabee, they'll be here to react. you will hear their reaction first right here on "fox & friends." >> they all made an i want pact last night. and heather childers is helping us out. >> we have had a lot going on already this morning and some stories we are following. good morning to everyone at home. a big break in the investigation into the three inmates who broke out of jail. authorities have arrested nooshafarin ravaghi. she is accused of giving them maps and other information which helped them escape. ravaghi taught english at the jail and the suspected ringleader hossein nayeri was one of her students. they're believed to be living in this white gmc van that was stolen on sunday. and flint isn't the only city in michigan with dangerously high levels of lead. dozens do. thousands of children have
4:12 am
tested positive for lead poisoning throughout the state. with levels higher than those found in flint in fact. one of the biggest culprits, lead based paint in older homes. in flint the water quality forced a state of emergency with thousands of children suffering from lead poisoning there and calls for governor snyder to step down. to oregon video released by fbi showing the shooting death of lavoy finicum by federal agents. in this video, you can see finicum get out of the vehicle with his hands up. before officials say that he reached for a loaded gun in his pocket before being shot and killed. he was part of an armed occupation at an oregon wildlife refuge, protesting federal land policies. the protest leader and seven others have been arrested. finally a super big mistake by the super bowl grounds crew. they initially painted both end zones with broncos colors and the team logos should have been painted of course for the carolina panthers. here's a closer look.
4:13 am
you can see a faint broncos logo where the crews had to erase their work. don't worry, panther fans, your team will have full representation. the crew fixed their mistake and i'll be there as cheer on the panthers. what were they thinking? >> they were not thinking. that's the problem. >> i know. >> panthers should have been in both end zones. >> so we had three hours of debate, and donald trump rally and you're outraged over that. >> priorities. >> all right. super bowl. >> thanks, heather. 13 minutes after the hour. straight ahead, one of the biggest moments of the night last night just four minutes into the debate. >> i'm a maniac. and everyone on this stage is stupid, fat and ugly. now that we have gotten the donald trump portion office the way -- >> what do voters think of that line? we have that next in beg your pardon?
4:14 am

on location with the famous, big idaho potato truck. our truck? it's touring across america telling people about idaho potatoes. farmer: let's go boy. again this year the big idaho potato truck is traveling the country spreading the word about heart healthy idaho potatoes and making donations to local charities.
4:16 am
excuse me miss, have you seen our truck? you just missed it. ahhh! aw man are you kiddin' me?
4:17 am
4:18 am
all right. there was some heated moments at last night's debate. which one resonated the most? we have three new sound bites, so let's begin with rand paul. do you think he had a good night first off? >> i think he had the best night he's had so far in the debate but i don't think it was enough. >> here he is talking about probably the thing that separates him the most. that is on the nsa data collection to stop terrorists. listen. >> the bulk collection of your phone data, the invasion of your privacy did not stop one terrorist attack. i don't think you have to give up your liberty for a false sense of security. when we look at the bulk collection the court has looked at this and the court declared it to be illegal. if we want to collect the records of terrorists, let's do it the old fashied way. let's use the fourth amendment. let's put a name on a warrant. let's ask a judge for it. let's respect the history of the
4:19 am
country. >> we saw the independents stayed the highest throughout that. and we lost some democratic support. but both were higher than the republican line. >> it was interesting to me. i mean, folks gave him a b-plus overall. i thought this was an old argument. but he had two standout moments in debate and of this one of them. >> and chris christie very confident, he's the blunt talk tore make a difference. here he was talking about law enforcement and cracking down on the enemy. here's governor christie. >> barack obama has made law enforcement the enemy. hillary clinton has made law enforcement the enemy. they're not supporting our law enforcement officer, it's making everybody nervous to get out of their cars. if you're a law enforcement officer it's making people nervous to go to law enforcement. as president, i will support law enforcement and we will stop radical terrorist attacks in this country by supporting our intelligence community and our law enforcement community. >> pro cop, anti-cop? >> it really worked. it was a-plus across the board what we heard from folks they're
4:20 am
a little tired of everybody criticizing law enforcement. people's number one concern right now is safety. they love he was talking about it and they like that he was talking about -- that he was talking about defeating isis. >> a-plus. i found it depressing that the blue line was so low, when talking about law enforcement. what we're dealing with here in the country, perhaps. meanwhile, ted cruz opened up four minutes in as the timekeeper says out of the open. here he is, here he is, ted cruz coming out. talking about donald trump and essentially he was saying about donald trump, you know, he tends to get a little bit personal. look at how he registered. when he came out and he says, you're fat, you're ugly, i'm a maniac. he got a "b" on that. >> people laughed. even democrats laughed. that was the only time we saw the democrats respond in this kind of way. he had a great opener but that was the high point of his night according to the voters. >> he got the second most time.
4:21 am
rubio got the most and i guess it's not the amount of time but what you do with it. >> and everybody said that he felt like he was on a -- the whole night. >> thank you very much. in story is incredible. this photo saved this baby's life. we will tell you about it in just a second. . now i use this. . the nicoderm cq patch, with unique extended release technology, helps prevent the urge to smoke all day. i want this time to be my last time. that's why i choose nicoderm cq.

welcome back on a friday morning. some quick international headlines. a terror square at disneyland paris. two people arrested after a 28-year-old french national suitcase sets off a hotel security detector. authorities finding guns, ammo inside. the map's girlfriend was also arrested. and a russian jet tries to show off its military might, right near a u.s. air force spy plane.
4:25 am
flying over the black sea, the su-27 fighter jet buzzed right alongside the u.s. plane for a few minutes before aggressively veering away. the defense department calling russia's actions unsafe and unprofessional. so who would think that russia's presence in the region would be problematic? 23 after the hour. one of the most intriguing parts of the debate was when we started to talk about surveilling or not surveilling mosques in america. not that people are suspicious of all muslims but if you want to find out where the radical beliefs are being spouted you have to get inside, you would think. >> there's a big discussion about mass immigration in europe and in the united states, the syrian refugees, who do you let in, who do you don't? how do you get ahead of the threats like we have seen in san bernardino and elsewhere? there were a number of different answers last night. we have a montage of some of the
4:26 am
answers from last night. >> radical muslims and radical islam is not just hate talk, but hate action. they blow people up. look what they did in san bernardino. >> we must keep america safe from the threat and yes when i'm president of the united states, if there's a place in the country that radical jihadists are planning to attack the united states, we'll go after them and if we capture them alive they're going the guantanamo. >> is that fair, we'll close down mosques or diners -- >> it's a huge mistake to close down mosques. this is where i had my disagree with senator rubio. i don't think marco can have it both ways. you can't defend us against radical islam if you're not for border security. >> i do believe that people who are trying to come to the united states, this country has a right to know who they are and why they're coming. >> all right. so chime in on that conversation. tell us what you think about the
4:27 am
candidates -- what they had to say there and by the way, who you think won last night's debate. pete, you're in a unique circumstance regarding the surveillance of mosques. you spent a bunch of time in michigan actually grappling with -- >> yes, i was there a couple of weeks ago. it will air in a couple of days it's a majority muslim town in america and it has a majority muslim city council. they wake up to the call to prayer, five times a day. they're grappling with mosques, surveillance, relationships, and when you hear rhetoric like during this campaign because of the threats we face, it creates inherent tensions. we saw that on the ground. >> and saying, hi, everybody, we need to interview you. you put people in the mosques to be able to monitor it without giving up the identity and ray kelly did it for the longest time in new york city with the final counteroperation. this current mayor doesn't think it's a great idea. let me ask you something, al

alawlaki was in america. he was spouting his ugly jihadism. we were not listening to him. we thought he was okay and now he's putting out tapes that are still radicalizing people. would you prefer we keep things quiet, or do you think we need to get inside there? i think we need to get inside there. >> i think people feel the same way. chris christie talked about law enforcement. he talked about say something -- see something, say something. it applies to citizens but for the law enforcement agencies, you have to be in front of those threats. you have to have the intelligence. that's hard to do that if you're not inside. >> well, surveilling mosques and supporting the military was a huge topic last night. we'll talk to jeb bush. he'll be coming up in a little bit. >> lawyers off the backs of the military once and for all. >> so what did he mean by the lawyers getting off the back of the war fighters? he's here next to talk about it. and two homeless guys suing because they weren't allowed to

4:33 am
seemed to have great time last night. the smile you have right now, it was a smile you had for two hours. was it because donald trump was not there? >> no, i wish he was there. i think people in iowa wish he was there as well. i don't know how he thinks he was doing the right thing by not being there. but that's his decision. we had a substantive debate. the questions were good. the moderators did their job. and people got better insights on what people were thinking and what -- you know, the mettle of the candidates. that what's it should be about. >> and charles krauthammer, best selling author, he said he thought you had the best night of everybody on the stage. congrats, the reviews are pretty strong for you. we have been talking about how a large chunk of iowans are undecided on the gop candidate. do you think you changed any minds last night? >> i hope so. i hope so. we're working hard here. we have a great grass roots organization and working very hard to get people out to the caucuses on monday night. but i love the chance to talk
4:34 am
about how we create a strategy to destroy isis and to focus on the things that people are concerned about here. >> well, absolutely. governor, last night a lot of talk about destroying isis. you had this to say. i'll have you react. >> the caliphate of isis has to be destroyed. which means need to arm directly the kurds, embed our troops with the iraqi military, re-engage with the sunny -- sunni tribal leaders and get them off the backs of them once and for all. >> i know there's rules of engagement. lawyers on your back are the things you don't want. but the devil's in the details. what would you do to loosen the rules of engagement to unleash our war fighters? >> well, first of all, revoke the memorandums of understanding that make this a law enforcement exercise. the united states military will always adhere to the standards of warfare that are accepted by the world. but we shouldn't have additional
4:35 am
conditions. for example, it takes three levels of approvals to get ordnances to drop. less than half of the sorties that go out drop their ordnances. that's ridiculous. it's endangering the pilots and endangerers our troops. the troops desperately want to be able to do what they do best which is to wind decisively. >> people are talking about the specific plan that you laid out the fix the v.a. system in this country. in fact, you said last night it will be your priority as president to fix the v.a. system. we have been chatting about it this morning. what's the reaction that you're getting to that? >> well, in every town hall meeting it comes up. veterans are angry and disgusted by the lack of progress that has taken place. so i feel compelled to act out to talk about this. pete's been actively involved in this.
4:36 am
i have gotten advice from good people that know about it. i have laid out a detailed plan. i know we can fix this. and the congress will support any effort by a president that will take care of our veterans. i'm totally convinced of that. >> you know, before the whole thing started and it became clear that you were going to get in and you actually got n everyone said let's -- don't go with the bush name. don't make it seem like a dynasty and now last night in my opinion, you seem to be embracing your last name more and saying, you know, for better or for worse this is who i am. in what respect do you think you might have changed once the game started and that's to get this nomination? >> well, it isn't for better or for worse, it's for better. i'm totally blessed when i woke up 62 years ago in midland, texas, and there was my mom and totally blessed to be the son of george h.w. bush and the brother of george w. bush. i love them and i'm proud of my family. and i also know at the same time
4:37 am
people want to know what's in my heart, what are my ideas, what kind of skills of leadership do i have. i don't find that at a conflict at all. the more people hear me, the more they understand i'm totally comfortable in my own skin. >> here we are a couple of days from the caucuses. any predictions for us? where do you feel you'll be coming out of caucus night in iowa? >> better than expected and raring to go to the other states. you know, south carolina and new hampshire and nevada in february. and then we start with the selection of delegates. frankly, you know, this is a long haul process. >> did you have any favorite moments last night? >> you know, i thought it was -- the exchange with marco rubio was a good exchange in that i got the last word in about the fact you can't cut and run. you should continue to fight through it, and i thought that was an important moment of debate. i think it's also important to talk about how republicans need to believe in a positive
4:38 am
aspirational message. our philosophy is the winning one for many people and right now, we're pushing people away when we need to bring them to our cause. >> governor, especially when it came to immigration i think this was your -- this is what you're referring to. sometimes you have to be willing to lose the primary in order to win the general. is that what's happening? >> no, look, i think you have to be consistent with your views. that's the point. the point is that you've got to believe what you believe and persuade people towards your cause. you can't cut and run whenever the pressure mounts. if it's hard to run, imagine what it will be like to be president if you're worried about how people think of things. >> impossible to kick 12 million people out of the country and has to be a pathway to citizenship, right? >> no path to legal status is what i've advocated. that's what i have been advocating in the book i wrote and i think that's the fair, conservative approach to this. is to have an extended period of time where people earn legal status. they don't cut in line with
4:39 am
people that have been patiently waiting outside. >> absolutely. immigration is a huge part of the debate last night. governor bush, well done last night. thank you for getting up early with us. >> god bless. >> thank you. >> all right. >> need some headlines. where's heather? >> i'm right here. we have some stories. we'll start with the zika virus. the culprit may be major sporting events. experts think the illness may have come to brazil during the world cup back in 2014 where there were tens of thousands of international travelers. now, the world health organization warns that it's spreading in the americas. and so far, 31 cases have been confirmed, 11 states in the united states. to arizona now where a mother is crediting a camera flash for saving her son's life. listen to this. the woman says that she started noticing a white glow in her son's left eye after she took a

>> it was a bigger opportunity because when he's there he tends to be the focus. gets the plurality of questions. and, you know, i do think that at some point you need to readjust some of the formats and actually have a clock and time the amount of time that people talk. because just someone mentions your name, you get, you know, twice as much time or three times as much time. that really doesn't make a lot of sense because we have such important issues that really need to be dealt with. and we've gotten more into a coliseum type atmosphere where ancient rome was collapsing, everyone wanted to be entertained rather than deal with the issues collapsing their society. >> you had 6 minutes and 11 seconds. marco rubio had the most with 13 minutes and 31 seconds. dr. ben carson, you feel as though your ground game is as good if not better than anybody

4:56 am
to immigration? >> well, roosevelt was very open to immigration, but you know, in the early 1900. he said we are a nation of immigrants. we cannot survive without immigrants. and everybody is welcome from any nation, religion or race, but they must want to be americans. they must want to be inculcated into our culture, not bring some other thing with them. and that's the problem with political correctness. the p.c. police say every culture and every ideology is okay and we can bring all of those things in here. that's not true. if we want to continue the american way. >> all right. dr. ben carson, nice job last night. i know that's behind you and looking forward to monday. i know you're working hard throughout the day. thank you. >> thank you. it's true, roosevelt talked

senior -- fox news senior national correspondent. he's live in des moines. we have lots more candidates in a little bit, but first to you, john, what's the latest from there as far as reaction? >> reporter: i think that remains to be seen. we'll find out on caucus night which is the ultimate reflection of how people are feeling about what happened in last night's debate and the candidates overall. one thing you could say, sandra, pete and brian, with donald trump off the stage, ted cruz was the person who was at center stage. and a couple of tactics he likes to employ during the debates, one, steam roll the moderators and get yourself extra time you don't deserve and then criticize the moderators for asking loaded questions. last night, it did not seem to work to his advantage. watch. >> debates are -- >> well, no, a debate is a policy issue. i will say this, gosh, if you guys say -- ask one more mean question i may have to leave the stage. >> don't worry, i'm not leaving the stage, no matter what you ask me. second of all --
5:03 am
[ applause ] >> and that was the start of the cruz/rubio show last night. the two battle to finish above the over on monday. rubio rising in the polls. the sharpest exchanges caoming over immigration and which one is the biggest flip-flopper. >> when he ran for election in the state of florida, he said if you elect me, i will lead the fight against amnesty. when i ran in texas, i told the people of texas if you elect me i will lead the fight against amnesty. we made the identical promises but when we came to washington we made a different choice. >> you have been willing to say door anything in order to get votes. you helped to design george w. bush's immigration policy and then you did an interview with cbs news and you said on the issue of people here illegally we can reach a compromise and in the committee you said i want to bring people out of the shadows. now, you want to trump trump on immigration. >> reporter: what he sort of
5:04 am
characterized a double speak which is too much for chris christie who insisted that such gobbledygook is why voters should nominate a governor as a president. >> i feel like i need a washington english dictionary converter. it is perfectly legal to change your mind, but when you're a governor, you have to admit it. you can't hide behind parliamentary tricks. that's the difference. that's the kind of leader we need in the white house. let's stop the washington bull and get things done. >> certainly with donald trump out of the arena last night there was a lot more oxygen for all of the other candidates who got to make their points forcefully. than maybe they have in the past. we talked to governor christie and he said it's easier when somebody not in your face all the time. will it make a difference? one more poll coming out from the des moines register on saturday. but the big one is monday night with the iowa caucuses. >> john, thank you. >> you're right. no trump, but cruz versus rubio,
5:05 am
rand versus both of them. and bush versus all of them. we'll see who it helps. >> a lot of attacks focused on hillary clinton last night as well. >> that was the focus. let's listen. >> if i'm the nominee i will unite this party and we will defeat hillary clinton and turn this country around once and for all after seven years of the disaster that is barack obama. >> thank you. >> to get the information from hillary clinton, you need to get a subpoena from the fbi. >> thank you, governor. >> for her convenience, she put america's secrets at risk for her convenience. she put american intelligence officers at risk for her convenience. when i take her on, i guarantee you one thing. she will never get within ten miles of the white house. the days for the clintons in public housing are over. >> i think bernie sanders is a good candidate for president -- of sweden. we don't want to be sweden. we want to be the united states of america.
5:06 am
and hillary clinton lied to the families of those four brave americans who lost their life in benghazi and anyone who lies to the families of americans who have died in the service of this country can never be commander in chief of the united states. >> and that was a lot of the focus yesterday, bring -- and because it's friday, geraldo rivera. good morning. you took in the entire debate last night. >> i did. >> you know it's a consequential debate. let's pick up on the attacks on hillary clinton and bernie sanders to a degree. were they effective? >> when i hear chris christie saying that hillary clinton is not going to be allowed within ten miles of the white house i say shut up. she's not going to be -- what are you going to do? it was a bullying kind of reminiscent of the old chris christie. i didn't like it at all. i thought the two big winner, donald trump was a big winner. i thought the debate without him was and undercard debate and the other winner i thought was megyn kelly. we don't want to be the news, we want to report the news.
5:07 am
the fact she was so much in the grinder there and maintained her dignity, her poise. her professionalism. i thought she did a spectacular job. i'm sorry this happened, this was as i told my friend sean hannity when it happened i thought it was a bar fight between the two brothers and then the bar keeper is sweeping up the glass and mama is paying the bail, you'll look back at the fight between our boss and the network, what was that about? it was hubris and pride. very unfortunate but i think the ratings will show that trump trumped everybody again. >> so interesting that you said. i'm surprised to hear you say that. i thought the debate where they addressed trump situation, i thought the debate was very interesting. >> if you cared about the people who were saying it. if you cared who -- or was it clear to many people including this particular viewer that the person who was going to have the republican nomination was three
5:08 am
miles away with a bunch of veterans, god bless them and he made 6 million bucks. not like he went there and bombed. he raised $6 million, a million of his own, to get the 22 vet -- to give to the 22 veterans organizations who's going to fault that? >> megyn kelly did fantastic last night. even setting aside trump and the veterans rally which some would say, you know, of course it's great to raise money for veterans but it was a convenient excuse or opportunity once he decided not to attend the debate, who else would you say benefited? cruz or rubio, who came out with a more plausible? >> i'm glad you asked me that, major, because i remember the irony i felt in 2008 when the first woman who had a viable chance to be president was defeated by the first black man. and i said, how ironic that the two historic firsts could not coexist. now i look at -- jump cut now to 2016 and for first time you have a latino candidate with the viable shot at the nomination.
5:09 am
i mean, let's assume that there is a viable shot. and then you have cruz and rubio, two 45-year-old cuban guys that are going to cancel each other out. i think it's so sad in a historic sense that the latino is going to not have the chance. >> a big moment for rubio last night was the discussion of the surveillance of mosques. it was an exchange that he had with senator paul. we want to get your reaction on the other side. >> radical muslims and radical islam is not hate talk, but hate action. they blow people up. look what they did in san bernardino. we must keep america safe from this threat and if there's some place in this country where radical jihadists are planning to attack the united states, we'll go after them wherever they are. if we capture them alive they're going to guantanamo. >> senator paul, do you agree with that? we're going to close down mosques -- >> i think that's a huge mistake to be closing down mosques but i would say that if you want to defend the country it begins

with border security. this is where i had any disagree with senator rubio. i don't think marco can have it both ways. you can't be in favor of defending us against radical islam if you're not for border security. >> may i respond? >> i do believe that people who are trying to come to the united states, this country has a right to know who they are, and why they're coming. >> your reaction? >> two quick observations, one, i thought rand paul was great. i thought it was best he had ever done. partially agree, but the fact he could state his libertarian views in the unfettered way, in an articulate way, complete his sentences without looking down at donald trump saying what the hell are you doing here, junior, you're at 2% in the polls. if you're into the whole libertarian thing, government shouldn't snoop, you can't scorch the earth in the middle east, you have to pay for it, i thought rand paul -- >> he agrees with you by the
5:11 am
way. he tweeted out this was the best debate for him so far. >> it was the best debate for him. but to ignore the trump phenomenon though i think is really to bury the lead. >> so he chose to be ignored. >> he chose to say it's all about me, it was narcissistic i totally get that. it was hubris, it was false pride or pride, i get that. it was who's the bigger guy. >> do you think who iowans want? >> who knows what iowans want? but he packed the hall, filled it with 700 people he had 150 overflow outdoors in the freezing cold, waiting to see if they could get in. watching on monitors. he made the 6 million bucks. i think that the -- and if the ratings i predict that the debate will do very well. not 17 million, not huge, but very well. but i think trump's event will be -- if not as big as the debate, it will be a substantial program that gave if you add up
5:12 am
all the cumulative networks that covered it, i think trump might come close -- >> what if he doesn't want to do next week's debate after that? >> you know, i thought that he could so -- fox news was absolutely right on the issue. on that there's no debate. fox news has -- no one has the right to dictate to us what reporters we assign to a story. no one, never. i just wish that this never happened. i wish that there had been some back channel discussions. trump could have made a joke of the ayatollah/putin thing, i'm sorry he did that. but i think it works ultimate ultimately -- i bet you it's net advantage trump. >> we love having you. >> always opinionated. >> good to have you. by the way, rand paul, chris christie both coming up in a little bit. we just learned the dangerous zika virus is spreading faster than experts were originally predicting. what do you need to know about

5:18 am
cases in the united states including a situation in which three new yorkers contracted it after returning from countries that had experienced an outbreak. it's been found in latin america, the caribbean, and africa, spreading to 23 countries and counting and with the olympics being held in brazil this year, there's concern and linked to 3,000 birth defects in brazil alone. 3 to 4 million in the americas could be exposed in next 12 months. here is what world health officials are saying about it. >> last year, the virus was detected in the americas where it is now spreading explosively. as of today, cases have been reported in 23 countries and territories in the region. >> reporter: officials say most infected people do not need to be hospitalized. meantime, u.s. airlines and cruise operators are offering refunds to people who book trips

5:23 am
last night's big debate marked the final before the iowa caucus and the return of kentucky senator rand paul to the main event. who wasted no time delving into the issues and confronting the competition. >> what's particularly insulting though is he's the king of saying oh, you're for amnesty. everybody for amnesty except or the ted cruz but it's a falseness. that's an authenticity problem that everybody he knows is not as perfect as him because we're all for amnesty. i was for legalization. i think frankly if you have border security, you can have legalization. so was ted, but now he says it wasn't so. that's not true. >> go ahead, sir. >> and ted cruz disagreed with that. here's how it went down with kentucky senator, who's also
5:24 am
running for election there, rand paul. you went out on a limb a little bit and you said, listen, i'm for -- you are for legalization for the ten to 12 to 14 million that are here. does it bother that ted cruz seems to have both sides of the fence on that? >> well, you know, he was always for this as well. we had the same position when the bill came up. i guess the problem with his authenticity is that he's now saying oh, he was never for amnesty. well, i'm not for amnesty either but i think we've dumbed down the debate when we start pointing fingers and saying oh, they're for amnesty, this and that. what i'm for is border security. secure the border first and then find a way to maybe give work visas or some way of accommodating the people who are here. but it's not amnesty, but i think ted wants to have it both ways but he wants to accuse everybody of not being as pure as he is, but i think he's creating a false narrative.
5:25 am
>> you have been in the senate with both senator cruz and rubio. there was a lot of finger pointing on authenticity. does one -- above the two of them, has one been more consistent on immigration or do you think they've both changed their position? >> thing's the interesting thing, you know, rubio has been for a pathway to citizenship. and now he's backing away from that. ted had always been for legalizing those who are here and now he's backing away from that. so i think in both instances they're backing away from something they had previously been for. and i think what really gets to the heart of the matter is whether or not you're authentic. even on the ethanol issue, you know, ted and i have been not in favor of the mandate. ted now has sort of backed away from that position. he's kind of for the mandate continuing but he also said last night that he's for for getting rid of the blend wall, and that's my bill. the question i'm asking, hey, ted, how come you haven't cosponsored my bill that does exactly that?
5:26 am
so i think he's -- he easily deas but isn't following through with being authentic about it. >> senator paul, another big moment on the stage for you last night was talking about drug addiction and tackling that problem as well. drug crimes and incarceration. >> drug issue is equal between white and black, but three out of four people in prison are black or brown. i think something has to change. i think it's been something that our party needs to be part of and i have been big on criminal justice reform. >> the gop needs to do something, so what is your plan? >> well, you know, i cosponsor a bill with chuck grassley and mike lee to try to have more reasonable sentences. i don't think you should go to jail for 15 years for drug use. i think if there's going to be a punishment it needs to be proportional to the crime. this is another area where ted has been on both sides of the issue. ted used to be for it and now he's opposed to criminal justice
5:27 am
reform as well. so i think it is a way to show that we have compassion for people who are down on their luck, live in poverty. when you look at arrest rates the arrest rates are much higher in urban areas. so african-american communities are being decimated by this. when you look at drug usage rates, whites and blacks use drugs about the same rate, but blacks are really suffering from the war on drugs. >> yeah. we are talking about that. i think on both sides you might be able to get something bipartisan going. because the president seems to be on that page too. senator, i have to bring it to the thing where you separated yourself. i think by all accounts you had a great night last night. i think you have to feel good about it. but i want to ask you your vision of the nsa and what we should be doing when it comes to mosques. ray kelly, mayor bloomberg, they were for putting people in the mosque, to put an ear on the ground to find out what's going on in there. you're not for that.
5:28 am
why? >> we shouldn't base our laws on religion or on examination of individual religions. i do believe an investigation of individuals and so when there's suspicion of an individual or probable cause, i'm all for investigating individuals but i'm not for a blanket statement that we're going to investigate a religion or a mosque. >> i can understand where you're coming from, but i would say this. if radical islam oftentimes the thoughts, beliefs and plans are hatched inside mosques, we don't know what we don't know, would you want to be proactive? >> well, see, i think we're talking around each other a little bit because i'm for targeting individuals who are possible terrorists for whom we have suspicion, wherever they are. i'm just not for targeting mosques or targeting religion in general. i'm for going -- it's the same sort of question of the nsa. it's not that i'm against looking at the records of terrorists. i want us to look at all of the
5:29 am
records of terrorists. i just don't want to do it indiscriminately where we look at everybody in boston's records. so i wouldn't say we're not going to investigate mosques in america, but i would say we're not going to limit police from investigating individuals wherever they go. >> the president has gone so faer as to take that to the -- so far as to say we're not going to call it radical islam. would you still call it that, and say this is radical islam and we have to identify and call it as such? >> yeah, without question, if you don't name the enemy you can't defeat the enemy. it's an aberration of the islam faith. if you don't name it, we'll never defeat it and my point in the middle east all along is when we toppled secular dictators we have gotten more radical islam. >> all right, senator, thanks for joining us bright and early this morning.
5:30 am
glad to have you. >> thank you. coming up another candidate who's tired of politics as usual. >> that's the leader we need in the white house and stop the washington bull and get things done. >> governor chris christie is still all riled up. and o.j. simpson has brain disease, is that true or a sorry excuse? we're having our own debate about the big one last night. who came out last night, who slipped down and who was the surprise of the evening? all the highlights and differences of opinion of course. join me, gretchen carlson at 2:00. mary ellen, and i quit smoking with chantix. i have smoked for thirty years and by taking chantix, i was able to quit in three months. and that was amazing. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. it absolutely reduced my urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, 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,
5:31 am
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. i can't believe i did it. i quit smoking. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. does printing from your tablet give you a jolt of confidence? then you might be gearcentric. right now, get this hp printer for 50% off! office depot officemax. gear up for great ®.

5:34 am
now, you have said that we should not profile. how do you square that with the san bernardino case? >> you can do it without profiling, you can do it on the facts. what those folks knew these folks had weapons, they knew that they were talking about trying to take our country and attack it. that's not profiling. that's law enforcement. >> all right. joining us live now to respond to that and add on top of it is governor of new jersey and presidential candidate, chris christie. governor, thanks for joining us this morning. >> thanks for having me. >> so governor, you agree with yourself, right? >> yes. unlike senator cruz and senator rubio last night, i actually agree with myself. i don't disagree with myself. >> right. but you did say it's okay to change your mind. i want to bring you to -- what's interesting, there are a few things -- it's okay to say, that's what i thought, things have changed. but when it comes to surveilling mosques and other things when it comes to would-be terrorist
5:35 am
activity, to do some proactive policing where do you stand on that as it relates to civil rights? >> well, listen, we have to -- we have to use the law and the constitution appropriately. we can do it. i did it for seven years as a federal prosecutor. when you have probable cause to go after someone you do it. you can be aggressive in doing it. we did it in new jersey. we intervened in two major terrorism plots that we stopped because we used intelligence, we used law enforcement. we did it under the constitution. you can do it. you just need someone who knows how to do it. i did it for seven years. i will do it as president of the united states. there is no one on that stage who is better prepared to keep americans safe and secure than i am. >> governor christie, huge debate here, how you treat the war with radical islamists, a criminal action or war itself? and on individuals you can understand you don't want them profiling, because of bigotry or
5:36 am
racism, so seeing something, saying something is good. how do you narrow the scope without having a level of profiling or the ability to say, hey, this group of people might be more likely, therefore, we'll target some resources there whether it's mosques or individuals who inthave express sentiments in favor of islam? >> there's not the what i that the professional law enforcement folks do it. the fact is we get intelligence, we follow that intelligence, we develop a human sources and we use electronics to do intelligence. you're not going to target people. you're not putting listening devices in every mosque. that's not the way it works. i have done it for seven years. we done it effectively in the bush administration, to keep america safe. no one will be more aggressive on this than i will. but we know how to do this under the law. you don't throw out the tools. you make sure you use them the right way. we will use them the right way aggressively and we will stop
5:37 am
terrorist acts in this country. >> as you did in my debate on fox business network, you chose to focus on -- your attacks on hillary clinton last night. it was effective for you before. you went after her again. you took her on, said she won't get within ten miles of the white house if you're elected president. was this effective? >> well, we'll see over the long haul, but it's what i believe in my heart. i mean, the fact is that i think hillary clinton would be a disaster for this country. and i think that we as republicans need to focus on that. and not the petty disagreements that they get engaged in up on that stage. i wasn't getting dragged into the back and forth. we need to focus on who's the most effective, tested person to take on hillary clinton and win this white house. and i know i'm the person to do it. >> by the way, the ending to your comment there was -- as you said on the stage last night, governor, the days of the clintons in public housing are over. that's certainly getting a lot of play this morning. >> and government --
5:38 am
>> well, listen, that's what they want. they want another four or eight years in public housing, we as republicans need to band together, unite, to make sure that that never happens and i'm the person who can do it. >> all right. let's talk about something else. i think it was chris wallace asked you, what are you going to do to reform -- get our budget in line so we can balance the budget? what would you cut? what's the program? you came up with this. >> how about the one i've done in new jersey for the last six years and that's get rid of planned parenthood funding in the united states of america. >> anything bigger than that? >> bigger than that? let me tell you something, when you see thousands upon thousands upon thousands of children being murdered in the womb i can't think of anything bigger than that. >> so that -- you were the only one to bring up planned parenthood yesterday. why was that in the forefront of your mind when he came one that surprise question? >> well, listen, he already said
5:39 am
that i'm the only one with an entitlement reform plan in the entire race which is where 71% of federal spending is. so if you're going to ask me for one program i want to get rid of, the murder of children in the womb is one of the things i think that the united states taxpayers should not have to fund. >> governor, people are so concerned about the $19 trillion in debt and the annual $1 trillion we're overbudget, that would save $450 million on the federal level. what else could you share with us that we should consider being cut? >> entitlement reform is what we should consider since it's 71% of all spending. i will put forward a plan that will save over $1 trillion as scored by cbo. that's a big number too. >> all right. governor chris christie, now it's off to finish up iowa and then over to new hampshire. i look forward to finally getting some results on monday as you are and seeing you on the ground out there. >> thank you. got four town hall meetings today and looking forward to getting votes out here in iowa. looking forward to my day.
5:40 am
thank you for having me on. >> all right, governor. >> don't be afraid to speak your mind. >> i'll do my best. i'm trying to hold back a little bit. >> governor, just so you know, the ten mile border around d.c. is quite porous. you might think about building a wall and getting the clinton foundation to pay for i. >> good idea. heather childers is standing by. what's the latest? good morning. >> good morning. we'll begin with o.j. simpson and a stunning new theory about him. concussion dr. bennett malou thinks he suffers from brain damage, specifically cte. he fits the profile after playing 11 years in the nfl and he thinks that it could have impacted the events leading up to his 1995 murder trial. he is credited with discovering cte, showcased in the film "concussion." a break into the three inmates who broke out of jail. authorities arrested nooshafarin ravaghi.

all right. well, social media was lighting up during the debate last night. joining me is kurt the cyber guy. what was everybody talking about? >> still talking about this morning oddly enough on this morning -- good morning to you. here are the numbers. how did it translate online, ted cruz 25% and marco rubio 20%. and rand paul 16%. these are the candidates at the debate that have garnered the most interaction online. the other numbers, which of the twitter conversations really surrounded the candidates, rand paul at 71%, ted cruz 60, and jeb bush at 58%. >> a big night for rand paul. >> for all three of the guys actually. i think the oxygen in the room did let them breathe and people are breathing online this morning. >> there was a lot of scream for rand paul in the audience. >> look at this. >> kentucky senator rand paul. [ cheers and applause ]
5:47 am
>> we wanted to fight against generalized warrants. let's not forget that. >> governor kasich -- >> i have been a leader in congress bringing about criminal justice reform. >> that's a way to work the crowd. >> there was cheering every time. we take that and we convert it to what it's really spinning on the web with #randgirling -- >> randgirling? >> that's what's going on. that is what people are talking about. this meme was created from that one event last night. look at this. >> i hope you'll consider me in the election. gulf nations are doing nothing. the fight on terrorism. i hope you'll consider me in the election. gulf nations are doing nothing. the fight on terrorism.

5:48 am
be the president of sweden. >> yes. rubio. >> made by rubio, right. have a look at this. >> there is a socialist -- i think bernie sanders is a good candidate for president, of sweden. we don't want to be sweden. we want to be the united states of america. >> so this spawned all kinds of things online that are animated. a pretty crazy spinoff from all aspects -- we have this moment which is this -- this going on. this is from the hollywood producer. >> wow. >> this is jeremy -- what is his last name? it is jeremy, tweeted this and it's retweeted again and again and again. >> marco rubio, sweden ain't so bad it says. bikini babes -- so overall, who does it look like the conversation, a lot of it was rand paul and randgirling, but talking about the candidates on the stage. donald trump getting a lot of conversation or not on social --
5:49 am
>> trump will get the play online. but as it came down to the debate, oddly enough rand paul exceeded trump's social numbers for the evening. rand had a great night but i think all the candidates did. >> good stuff. a lively debate. thank you very much, kurt. well coming up, an image many americans thought he'd never see. there he is, governor mike huckabee standing behind a donald trump podium. what's going on there? we'll ask him next. but first, bill and martha, what's coming up at the top of the hour? congrats to you guys last night on a job well done. >> well, thank you. thank you. >> good morning, everybody. from des moines, good to be here this morning. and with all of you. big night last night. we'll give you the play-by-play. we have chris wallace and chris stirewalt and we'll brake down the winners and the losers last night. >> hits, runs and errors.

the last two winners in the state are on the stage tonight. governor huckabee, in 2008 you won by nine points here. >> last night several of the republican candidates joined in on the earlier debate as you're seeing there. one was governor mike huckabee. after that the governor went over to the trump event just
5:54 am
down the street. >> the governor joins us live from des moines this morning. governor mike huckabee. thank you. >> hey, governor. >> delighted to be here. thank you. >> well, you raised some eyebrows after being in the first debate, showing up on other networks on stage with another -- two other republican candidate, namely donald trump. why did you show up? >> well, you know, i offered to take that empty podium at the second debate and i didn't get that slot. i thought i have nothing going at 8:00, let's support the veterans. i thought it was a great event. it wasn't about donald trump it was about the veterans. there was an electrifying speaker last night. a gentleman named john wayne walding, a green beret. he lost a leg in combat, he was dynamic in saying that when veterans come back, they want to hear two words -- thank you. and it was a powerful reminder of what we owe the people who serve us in uniform. i was delighted to be a part of that. >> well, governor, so this was -- it was more about the

veterans. more about the veterans, if it was just donald trump at an event you would not have gone over there? >> well, i wouldn't have gone to a donald trump rally if the it was for his political campaign, of course not. but i thought it was gracious of him to invite the other candidates to be part of it. he was a gracious host and he treated us beautifully. and again, it was about the veterans and he didn't make it about his campaign. he spoke really very short brief time. and i thought it was a great opportunity to show that even though we are competitors in the presidential race, when it comes to supporting the people who keep us free, we're colleagues on the same page. >> all right. governor, so iowa has been a key state for you in the past. here we are, what's the plan? >> well, i don't know of a short cut to winning the iowa caucus and having done it before, and not just winning it, but i still have the record for the most votes in the history of the iowa
5:56 am
caucus. well, here's how i did it. i got outspent 15 to 1, most people thought we didn't have a shot, but we worked, went to every county. we met with people, whether it was five people or 500 people. when it came caucus night, we won. if there's a short cut to the iowa caucus, maybe this is the year we see it. i don't know. but i don't know of any other way to win it. and we have never had the big wall street money and the billionaires backing. not a corporately funded candidate so once again, if people want a candidate who gets all their cash from the same people that give the money to democrats and republicans they'll pick somebody else. it won't be me. >> next week you'll be on the main stage, if you win on monday. thanks so much for joining us, and good luck today and on monday. >> thank you. good to talk to you guys. >> all right. coming up straight ahead, more "fox & friends." something substantial when we return. hey pal? you ready?
