3:06 am
highly charged. paul manafort came out of the campaign for mr. trump and corey lewandoski, they came out on the sunday shows and say ted cruz is very good at primaries where there's no voting. >> we're trying to let voters and independents decide who the nominee should be. not the party bosses. >> the bottom line is ted cruz does well in places where party bosses decide the rules and people don't get to go and vote. people are watching from the beginning of the process, we watched the people in new hampshire and south carolina and vote it comes to your state, i want to vote and then you realize, wait a minute, we've got this thing set up for years where there's a state convention and, you know, the party bosses,
3:07 am
they do the picking. >> and like you are saying, every state is different and like in the state of new york, the candidates, of course, want to choose their delegates but in this state there are 300 gop party bosses and they all choose 95 of the delegates. donald trump is saying i want to choose my own delegates. ted cruz and john kasich say the same thing. when they come to the convention, they are going to be loyal to donald trump in vote 1, 2, and 3 they don't want the gop party bosses to choose the delegates. that's not what's happening. >> there are two other people in the race, there's governor kasich and senator ted cruz who is capitalizing on the complaints of the trump organization. he put this out in your tweet. order your #trumper tantrum starter back now. >> delightful. >> you got to give ted cruz a lot of credit. he's put together an organization to capitalize on
3:08 am
all these different states' nuances. he put together a really good team. i don't think if you are donald trump you can fault ted cruz for understanding each and every state. nor can you fault donald trump who wasn't a politician until last june. >> ted cruz is following the rules that the establishment set up and you can't fault him for that. hillary clinton, it looks like, will beat bernie sanders. it could be north of 10%. over the weekend, mr. trump finally unveiled his nickname for mrs. clinton. so we've got a little bit of that, and then you will hear her response to that in this sound bite montage. >> and then of course we have crooked hillary. crooked hillary, folks. she's been crooked from the beginning, and to think that she has a shot at being our

the $10 due to the popularity of the play "hamilton" really? >> a new $20 won't be issued until 2030. it takes a lot of years to develop new security features. what do you think about that? take him out and put somebody else on it. >> create a new bill for a woman. make it a $25 or something because andrew jackson at 13 was a colonel in the revolutionary war, he was a congressman and a senator. one of best generals he ever had. >> they are going to keep hamilton on because of a broadway show. if that is the standard, next thing you know, folks, we're going to have cats on money.

3:18 am
donald trump vowing victory despite the system he calls rigged. that's ahead of new york's primary. he leads the real clear politics poll by 30 points. it may be a significant victory for him. there may be one path to secure the nomination without a contested convention. here to break it down. we had to have you on, sean. first off. let's look at that path. let's begin in the northeast. >> you know, trump has had a bad month. he's only gotten a quarter of the delegates since this became a three-man race. thing will turn around for him in the next couple weeks. we expect him to sweep the delegates over the northeast. that puts him like about 1,000 delegates. 200 shortfall. >> you have pennsylvania, west virginia, rhode island and new york and connecticut all colored must-win states for donald trump
3:19 am
in red. let's move over to the midwest. you say this is the pathway for donald trump, and these are the must-win. indiana likely to win and it's a must-win, but he doesn't expect to do well in south dakota and nebraska. >> part of the problem is they are winner-take-all states. indiana is an interesting case because demographically it's not that great for him. the question mark, though, is if john kasich is still in the race. he's the governor -- popular governor of a neighboring state. could bleed votes away from ted cruz and allow trump to overperform there when he really needs to do. >> interesting too, sean. because if ted cruz starts coming in third in new york and indiana, people will say really, you expect that person to win the nomination when he can't place in second any longer. let's move out to the west where we look at a june contest.
3:20 am
you say must-win, california, oregon, washington, as well as new mexico. >> yes. those are states that we really don't know too much about. they don't have republican primaries of note because things are usually wrapped up by now. what's really interesting is california awards almost all of its delegates by congressional district, so the voter -- this race is actually going to be decided by the three or four republicans and nancy pelosi's district or whoever votes in a republican primary in watts and compton. >> unbelievable. sean trende, making it simple, thanks so much, sean. >> thanks for having you. >> we'll bring you back as soon as we get the maps for real. one of the biggest troeferses -- controversies 2012

3:26 am
march 31st. that happened to be one day after the vote to expand this program. fcc commissioner hagitpi jiens us now. how did the alleged $10 million fraud happen? >> well, basically, this company total call engaged in all sorts of fraudulent schemes. you name it, they instructed their employees to do to do it. they learned about this fraud in 2014. >> why are we just hearing about it then? this is our money. >> that's a good question. we were told you can't discuss this case publicly until april 1st. that's curious. on march 31st, the fcc is
3:27 am
scheduled to expand this program without any budget and security measures. >> why are you speaking out now? >> part of the reason is that i think it's an outrage not just as a commissioner but as a citizen for this program to be administered the way it has been, overlooking the fraud and expanding it even further, but secondly i'm hoping that shining a light on their operations will encourage and the american people to take a closer look at this program. there's a lot of fraud that's basically under wraps and that needs to come out into the open. this is only the tip of the iceberg, i expect. >> i applaud you for coming out and telling us about this alleged fraud. if you knew about it before the vote, why didn't you come out earlier. >> well, under the fcc's rules i'm prohibited from sharing nonpublic information. that's one of the rules i have to live by. i'm not sure what the sanction
3:28 am
would be. i don't want to enter counterif i can help you. >> you broke the story over the weekend. we saw you here on "fox & friends." you are coming out this morning. i'm sure your bosses have heard that you have come out. what about the backlash? what are people saying to you now? >> there's no love lost for me within the building i suspect in some quarters. i've been encouraged by some of the statements i've heard from the american people. on saturday, i got i agreat email saying keep standing up for what's wrong. those are the kind of statements that boost me when i suspect that i'm just fighting in the bunker. >> ajit pai thank you so much for joining he me. the fcc spokesman came out. said the timing of the enforcement action was in no way related to the timing of the vote on the program modernization. so basically the timing of this alleged fraud had nothing to do
3:29 am
with the timing of the vote. so we report. you decide. fox news alert. it's what pilots have been warning about or been warned about and it has just happened. a drone hits a passenger plane. the frightening details ahead. it is deadline day. still need to file those taxes? we're going to help you beat the big government stress with some boxing and answer your last-minute questions. that's coming up next. happy birthday to kourtney kardashian. she is 37 years old today.

3:45 am
investigating mrs. clinton for taking all of her emails off the government server, the state department is being sued by judicial watch. two are relevant here. two separate judges ordered her aides, the same people that the fbi wants in the criminal case, to testify in the freedom of information act case. what does that mean? that means that two judges have already found that there was a conspiracy in the officey of stn when she was the secretary of state to avoid and evade federal law. these federal judges want to find out about it. whatever they say under oath in the civil case can be used by the fbi when they intertear row investigate nem in the criminal case. >> we famously saw a number of months back that brian pagliano kept taking the fifth.
3:46 am
>> he does not have any fifth amendment right because they gave him immunity. once they give you immunity, they can give it to you involuntarily. in this case, he accepted voluntarily. he's now the government's chief witness against mrs. clinton. >> he's compelled to say everything. >> correct. what did he do? he was paid $5,000 to commit the probably criminal act of migrating a public email stream to the secret servers and a secret email stream to the secret servers. >> they wouldn't have given him this community if they didn't think they could get something for sure. >> i really have nothing to say. they already know that he's going to give up something. >> correct. what's also interesting is these interrogations, these depositions in the civil cases are probably going to be videotap videotaped. we'll probably see this very soon. >> let's listen to what hillary clinton has said about this, if
3:47 am
she's going to talk to the fbi, listen. >> has the fbi reached out to you yet for an interview? >> no. no, they haven't, but back in august, we made clear that i'm happy to answer any questions that anybody might have, and i stand by that. >> brian pagliano was granted immunity from prosecution into the criminal investigation from your email server. the democrats worry that somebody is going to get indicted. >> well, there is no basis for that. it's a security review. i'm delighted that he has agreed to cooperate as everyone else has and i think that we'll be moving toward a resolution of this. >> security review sounds so innocuous. >> it's a criminal case. >> she demeans the case. all the fbi experts and witnesses they interviewed and all work they did to extract
3:48 am
information from the servers, when she demeans the case, she demeans them. it's crazy for her to do that. when she says, i can't wait to talk to them. who in their right mind being investigated by the fbi for espionage can't wait to talk to them? it defies logic. >> her aides, would you recommend they turn down the request for an interview? >> absolutely. >> they all have conflicts. they have a conflict between their loyalty to her and their own exposure to criminal prosecution. she has a conflict. no white collar criminal defense lawyer would ever let his or her client talk to the fbi. that's the martha stewart case in an ordinary conversation with the fbi, she lied, she was prosecuted. she went to jail for it. mrs. clinton says she can't wait to talk to the fbi. >> she has to say that. she's running for president. the other thing is she keeps
3:49 am
bringing up this analogy with col colin powell. is that true? >> he occasionally used his personal g mail account to mun kmat -- communicate with people in the state department occasionally. alberto gonzales once brought some documents home in his briefcase and reported himself the next day. >> she had her own server. big difference. >> thank you, judge. >> i like to get him fired up. >> no kidding. george clooney raised millions of dollars for hillary clinton's campaign. now we might know why because donald trump hurt her feelings? eric trump joins us with that and much more at the top of the hour. then, steve told us he used to cook -- he used to make his breakfast on his car radiator. we're going to go live and put him to the test. >> you can do it.

4:02 am
so we've got both there. some cocktails and mocktails just to take the edge off of april. >> it's not a bad day at all. and by the way, last week we had the scouts on showing you how you could cook with foil. and i recounted a story about it when i was younger, i remembered one of my scout leaders told me about that. and i actually prepared a meal on the manifold of my car. we are making breakfast on the -- in the engine compartment. >> right. >> of a jeep. >> right. >> i'm not sure how it's going to taste, but yes, it might cook your meal. >> ock. we're looking out the front window of the actual jeep that is preparing our breakfast. >> is he driving? >> that looks like an 18-wheeler to me. oh. >> it's the point of view. >> got it. >> a.j., let's see the temperature gauge to make sure it's -- >> what do you want to cook it on, steve? >> as hot as possible. >> here's the thing, though, steve. when you're a boy scout, aren't you out in the woods? you don't have a car. >> here's the thing when you're traveling across the country like that or you've got an 80-mile drive somewhere, just
4:03 am
put some food in the motor. and put it on your limo motor. >> eric, what do you think? >> you have to try out the breakfast. >> were you a boy scout? did you do any of this? >> i spent a lot of time in the woods. i did. i love it. >> yeah, but you're a hunter. >> a big outdoorsman. y yeah, i love that stuff. >> from hunting for votes, tomorrow's the big day here in new york for your father. according to all the polls, he's going to win big. trump, 54, cruz, 21, john kasich, 19. >> we're so excited. remember, we've been fighting on away turf the entire time. now we f to come home. new york, our whole lives, has treated us so well. it's a lot of fun. and just the friends coming out of the woodwork, it's really amazing. >> you guys are new politics. that's part of the allure of possibly your dad's success so far. but all this new with the delegates acquisition, the way it's done is really throwing a lot of people off who feel as though their votes are being
4:04 am
discounted. here is your dad yesterday in poughkeepsie talking about the process. >> nobody has better toys than i do. i can put them in the best planes and bring them to the best resorts anywhere in the world, doral, mar-a-lago, i can put them in the best places in the world, california. i have something that blows everything away. but it's a corrupt system. >> he's talking about with delegates, to be wined and dined in order to come to your direction rather than earned by votes. >> it is a corrupt system. he's 100% right. look at colorado. the people didn't even get to vote. that's not democracy. i mean, people in the united states vote. here you have a little boys club and they decide who they want to be commander in chief. we live in america. people get to vote. the fact that my father is millions of votes ahead, yet delegates keep on getting stripped from him, it really is a broken system. >> but it's just the way colorado and wyoming is set up where, you know, a lot of people in those states would like to go vote, but they've done it this way for years. >> the republican party has, i think, a perception problem, right? this really upsets people.
4:05 am
you see arizona. you covered it better than anybody. you had people waiting in line for three, four hours to vote. then fast forward two months and then all of a sudden those people's opinions, those people's time, that's stripped from them? that's not democracy. that's just not democracy. >> your father is complaining about the system. a lot of people agree with him, but these rules are in place. in this election, is there anything that can be done? >> what's going to be done is we're going to win. we're going to win big tomorrow and on the 26th. you know, we're going to win big. we're going to win pennsylvania, connecticut, new jersey, maryland. we're certainly going to wen california. it's really our time to come home, and we're going to do very well over the next couple months. >> and obviously the goal is 1237. >> sure. >> but is that the plan a without a plan b? you'll not play the delegate game, you'll just win it outright, and if it doesn't happen, let the chips fall where they may? >> in the real world, you always
4:06 am
have plan a, b and c. i'm really, really confident we're going to get 1237 and it's going to start tomorrow. >> ted cruz silenced yesterday publicly but he did put something on social media. this is the picture he put on. he's basically calling your dad a whiner. you can order your trumper tantrum attire here. what's your response? >> kind of shocking. we're millions of votes ahead of ted cruz. and quite frankly, he doesn't have any path from here on forward. >> he's coming in third in new york. >> of course. he wouldn't win this state. he wouldn't have won the state anyway even if it wasn't for that comment. on the 26th in new jersey and all these other places, he's just not winning in this part of the country. he's not winning. he did very well in caucus states, closed, very small, closed primaries. that's why we're millions of vote as head of him. >> after wisconsin, was coming home -- wisconsin, a lot of people thought maybe ted cruz is coming back and is going to win. and then the next state is new york. so that was a home run for your father. >> listen, we fought on everybody else's territory, as i
4:07 am
was saying. wisconsin wasn't a state that we knew very well. we come back to states, and we've worked in our whole lives where our friends reside, our employees reside. we're just going to do so well in these states. >> the projections are your dad's going to win, and on the democrats' side, it looks like hillary clinton's going to win by at least ten. your father is already looking towards the general election. given the fact that he has a penchant for affixing a nickname, not a positive one, on his opponents, it's not surprising he's finally come up with hillary clinton. you're about to hear it, and then she's going to respond on one of the chat shows. watch this. >> and then, of course, we have crooked hillary. crooked hillary, folks. she's been crooked from the beginning, and to think that she has a shot at being our president, crooked hillary clinton. we can't let it happen. >> he can say whatever he wants to say about me. i really could care less.
4:08 am
>> okay. so crooked hillary apparently is what he's going to use for right now. it doesn't bother her, she says. >> it's actually a great compliment. she turned her attention to us for the last two weeks she's been running negative ads against us in new york. she's already turned her attention to us which is a great compliment because she's effectively saying we're going to be the nominee, and he's going to be the nominee. it's going to be an interesting battle between the two of them. there's a lot of things -- there's a lot of fuzz on her record to say the least, and he's certainly going to go after it. >> a lot of fuzz? >> he's going to go after her in a way that no one's gone after her before. >> you guys haven't done much fund-raising, but when it comes to the general, you probably will. george clooney condemned the fund-raising situation in america and then charged, what, $300,000 a plate? >> $353,000. >> to go to his house with him and his wife and campaign for hillary. >> i was shaking my head. it made no sense. was that not the most hypocritical statement in the history of statements? >> absolutely. >> i couldn't believe it. >> but then did you hear what he said?
4:09 am
it actually got better. this is what he said about meeting your dad one time. listen. >> i met him once. i was sitting down at a table. it was nice. and then -- and we talked a couple of times, i think. and then he went on larry king and told everybody i was very short. by the way, i met you sitting down. but no, it's not about that. >> i think george clooney is just under 6 feet tall. >> i didn't see the statement. that is funny. it really is funny. >> actually, we looked it up. he's 5'11", he says, but don't you guys lie about that? >> 5'11", 6 feet. >> i'm 6'5". he's very short compared to me. >> right, yes. >> real quick, eric, how does it work when you campaign? you guys are bulking up big time. you've got governor walker is the head of the campaign chair and you also have paul manafort and then you still have -- you still have corey there. how's is coming together? >> it's amazing. we're really ramping up for the general. we think we're going to get that
4:10 am
nod. we truly believe -- >> who's leading there? who's in charge out of all three? >> everybody. it's a team everybody. >> your dad. >> my father's in charge but everybody does different things. paul's really taking on the delegates and corey's obviously stl running part of the campaign, et cetera. we're really ramping up toward the general. as campaigns really progress in nature, and you know, we're going to start focusing on the big prize. we're certainly going to go into the intention and get to 1237. i really think we're going to be going after hillary. >> the polls are opening 23 hours from right now. eric trump, thank you very much. we know you've got to go shake hands, kiss babies, stuff like that. >> we'll be kissing a lot of babies. >> thank you very much. time for some news now with heather. >> great to you here. good morning to all of you. fox news alert. high-water rescues under way right now in texas after dangerous flooding slams the area overnight. this car stranded on the streets of houston where nearly a foot of rain fell, causing schools to

drones. the incident happened at london's heathrow airport as the pilot went for landing yesterday afternoon. take a look. this is a picture of the plane taken by a security camera just minutes before the apparent strike. well, the pilot quickly calling in the incident, saying he thought it was a drone. the plane was carrying 132 passengers and 5 crew members. luckily no one was hurt on the flight. the aircraft only suffering minor damage and was clear for the next flight just shortly after. well, the flight was arriving from geneva, switzerland. an investigation is under way into what happened to figure out if it was, in fact, a drone that hit the plane. british airways releasing a statement saying, quote, safety and security are always our first priority, and we will give the police every assistance with their investigation. while drones are banned within five miles of any u.s. airport, there have been plenty of close calls over the past year. the faa reports on average there are 25 incidents between planes and drones every month. the unmanned aircraft pose a huge risk as they can be sucked

like cumming county, if someone dies of heroin toxicity, it might be a feeling that this is indeed a homicide and we're going to start rolling those deaths accordingly. >> so your hope would be that these drug dealers who already are breaking the law taking risks, to understand that they are really breaking the law, and they're going to go to jail maybe for 20, 25 years. >> you know, the coroner doesn't have control over -- that's up to law enforcement and the district attorney's office. we all work cooperatively, but i think with the coroner saying this is a homicide, that's the death of an individual at the hands of another, these -- the investigation is the same. we're going to continue to investigate these deaths. and if the district attorney and law enforcement can -- tailor to that death, then they would be accordingly prosecuted.
4:26 am
>> yeah. i know the audio's not great, but we understand what you're saying. i just want to show everybody some of the reasons why you're so alarmed and why you're recommending such extreme measures when it comes to drug dealers. look at what we're dealing with in terms of heroin abuse. in 2002, when you used to bring up heroin, you used to think something, eh, that's about the '60s. that's all done. that's passe, but it is skyrocketing here in 2013. and there's no community that's immune. unlike where you have different drugs in different communities in different areas, this seems to be nationwide. do you see it that way? >> absolutely. even -- i mean, williamsport like cumming county is a very -- you know, have seen drug issues over the years, but not to the magnitude and the number of deaths. last year we had 25 drug-related deaths. nine of those were heroin toxicity. so the numbers are increasing even in rural areas. it's across the country.
4:27 am
and i think we've got to do something, you know, differently and drastic and hopefully this will have an impact. >> charles, thanks so much. we had some audio hits. we understand the concern, and we got your point. go ahead and charge these drug dealers as if they're killing somebody. it's a homicide because that's the result, and you've seen it way too much. charles, thanks so much over in pennsylvania. all right. coming up straight ahead -- >> thank you. >> you're welcome. a sickening attack on one of our heroes. two men try to suffocate an american soldier by putting a bag over his head. what happened to them next. it's a story we'll be carrying. then, it's deadline day. are you stressing out about your taxes? well, we can't help you with that, but we can help you relieve the stress. we're answering your tax questions, and where do you punch people? ♪

>> first congratulations on getting the grants and scholarships. when you're using this for tuition and books, you do not have to pay taxes. but if you're using it for living expenses, for travel, anything that's not education related, you do have to include that as income. so if that $2,000 was used for that, then that's perfect. >> right. okay, sam writes this. are payments to assisted living or nursing homes deductible? >> it depends. so if you're in there for medical reasons and you need to be there, it's a medical expense and you can actually deduct that if it exceeds 10% of your adjusted growth income. >> i'm filing an extension, even though we have not prepared our taxes yet. so do we have to pay the full amount due? >> so a lot of people are in this situation. you do not have to pay the full amount due. you can do as much as you can, pay now, and then try to get the rest of it done by october 15th. you'll pay a penalty, but it's only half a percent. >> terry has this question. do i have to file a tax return for my 91-year-old mom if i used turbo tax and she owes neither federal nor state taxes? >> hi, terry's mom.
4:36 am
you do not have to file if you earned less than $11,850 for last year for a woman living alone over the age of 65. >> lauren, you're a financial planner who knows taxes. how important is it now to keep the tax laws in mind when it comes to planning your finances? >> you know, can you really do a lot to reduce your tax liability if you plan ahead of time. so rather than just saving it all till the last minute for next year, do a little plan ing ahead of time and you'll pay a little less in taxes. >> right. it's not patriotic to overpay. you can be savvy about it. >> absolutely, and you should be. >> thank you so much. appreciate it. heather, what else is going on? good morning. the breaking news overnight. defense secretary ash carter arriving in baghdad to meet with iraqi leaders about ramping up the fight against isis. the talks expected to focus on how to retake the northern city of mosul from the terror group. options are said to include airstrikes, cyber attacks, and the possibility of sending a small number of american troops to that area. more on that as we get it. that new video just coming into
4:37 am
our newsroom. a disgusting attack on a u.s. soldier overseas. two men now arrested for trying to suffocate him with a plastic bag. take a look at this. it is disturbing to watch. and our soldier was in uniform. take a look at that. both men were from a radical youth group. they filmed themselves on a u.s. base in turkey, trying to put the bag over the soldier's head. well, that soldier fights them off. those men are now under house arrest. the attack mimics an incident that happened also in turkey back in 2014. and then dramatic footage, catching the moment a fire tornado formed forcing a firefighter to jump to safety. watch this. you can see him as he jumps into a river to escape the flames. the video is showing heavy black smoke from a brush fire in canada swirling into a funnel toward the sky. fire crews say that the blaze was sparked about i a campfire
4:38 am
that simply got out of hand. and voter registration gone wrong in california. thousands of people including some big-name celebrities registered for the wrong party all because of some confusing wording. according to today's "l.a. times," as many as three in four people who are registered as a member of the conservative american independent party may have actually picked that party by accident instead of registering with no party affiliation. demi moor ae and emma stone amo the celebrities to make that mixup. let's bring you some extreme weather right now. high-water rescues under way at this hour. also severe lightning storms slamming texas overnight. more than a foot of rain stranding cars and causing school closures this morning. as flash flood and tornado warnings are in effect right now. maria molina is tracking what is ahead for our friends in texas this morning. hi there, maria. >> reporter: hi, good morning. it's really across the houston area where we're dealing with
4:39 am
the heaviest rain. some areas reporting well over a foot of rain already across that region. so we do have a flash flood emergency ongoing and warnings are in effect out there. so a lot of caution to heed out there across southeastern texas and even extending in through parts farther north across eastern texas. again, the threat across texas today is really the flood threat. we could potentially see an additional six to eight inches of rain across some areas. we do have a number of watches in effect. the other concern is that later on today and also into tonight, we could be seeing severe weather. some of these storms across southern texas could bring some large hail, damaging winds and even isolated tornadoes. that's going to be very dangerous as well as we head into later on today. otherwise east of the storm system that continues to bring rain across the plains, we're looking at very warm temperatures. i mean, you could be at 79 degrees today in new york city. 82 in chicago. 80s widespread across parts of the southeastern u.s. but behind this system, a lot cooler out there. in denver, your forecast high only at 39 degrees. by the way, some of the colorado foothills picked up three to
4:40 am
even four feet of snow over the weekend. so very significant out there. i'm sure skiers are very happy.. >> all right. thank you very much, mia. there's a lot of fighting going on behind maria, more than usual. 20 minutes before the top of the hour. here's what we want to tell you. donald trump looking for a delegate sweep in the empire state, but will that clear his road to the republican nomination? how close will it get him? john roberts is up next. then, brian, you know what we're going to do? we're going to check on steve's car-cooked breakfast. >> smells like bacon! >> we're going to put it to the taste test, steve, and see if it tastes like bacon. >> his breakfast is on the raid eightier. radiator. he's cooking it now as we speak. born on this day in 1976, this actress is known for her role as the witch sabrina sawyer. e-mail us with the correct answer. as we keep this in mind, i
4:41 am
know it's tax day. maria molina is pounding the heavy bag. she owes a lot in taxes, writing a big check today, i'm sure, getting a little instruction, relieving stress like only title boxing can. it's a complicated process so we're going to break it down and show you how each state's law impact the choice of candidates. next up, colorado, indiana and new york. so join me, gretchen carlson, we're keeping it simple on "the real story" at 2 being cl. fight heartburn fast. with tums chewy delights. the mouthwatering soft chew that goes to work in seconds to conquer heartburn fast. tum tum tum tum. chewy delights. only from tums.

4:44 am
visit to learn more. i have said from the beginning that it should be a combination of 12 and/or 15. >> no. no, you didn't. you always said 12. >> and 15. i said 12 and/or 15. >> no, it is not. no, no, no, no. >> yes, it is!
4:45 am
are you feeling that bern? you feel that bern? >> you feel that bern, she said. >> oh, man, oh, man. >> the cold open on "snl" right there. >> it's getting hot here in new york. john roberts, our national senior correspondent, joins us on tax day. he's also helping us with the taxes in the green room. john, things are heating up. it does look like hillary and trump are both going to win. >> yeah, i think it's easy. but the reason why trump's not letting up at all is because of the complicated delegate allocation rules in the state of new york. it's -- it's a proportional primary with a threshold which means that if you go over 50% statewide, you get all the large delegates. >> jackpot. >> if you go over 50% in each of the 27 congressional districts, you get all of the delegates. so if you go over 50% everywhere, you get 95. you know, there are some congressional districts where he might not go over 50. >> and the gop has also got to choose the 95 delegates. he didn't get to choose -- >> yeah. >> the advantage of the candidates choosing is the first round, second round, third
4:46 am
round, usually if you choose your delegates, they're going to vote for you every time. >> the delegates are all bound on the first ballot, those who are bound, but there are still some unbound on the first ballot. but then the second ballot and thereafter, it's a real wild card. for example, what happened in georgia, donald trump won. those delegates are bound to vote for him in the first ballot. but at the district conventions on saturday, ted cruz walked away with most of the delegates who will vote for him if it goes to a second ballot. so trump either has to win 1237 before the convention to lock it up or win in the first ballot. >> it shows that. >> also this week the message was pretty clear. they're looking to win, the trump people, on the first ballot, that's it. a lot of these people are going to head to the hills after they're bound. but there are some must-have states for donald trump to get that first-ballot victory, right? >> there are, and a number of them are coming up inment next couple weeks. first, you've got new york, let's look at the map, with 95 delegates. the week after, you've got five contests, connecticut, maryland, rhode island, delaware,
4:47 am
pennsylvania, 172 delegates between all of those. trump will probably take those. indiana is coming up as well. it's a little bit of a toss-up. ted cruz is probably going to do well there. south dakota and montana, that's probably cruz territory. then when you head west, new mexico not a lot of accurate polling there. we don't know how it's going to go. california, a new cbs news poll has got trump up 18 in california. he's got to be happy about that. washington, there have been no reliable polls. oregon seems to be sort of trending toward trump. and washington state and oregon tend to kind of -- i don't want to say they move in lockstep, but they're very similar. >> if he does not win everything in red -- >> then he doesn't make it to 1237. so cruz is playing very hard in california because if he stop him there with 172 delegates, that's it for trump. >> but as you know, northern california is much different than central california. it's much different than southern california. and los angeles is very different from san diego. >> exactly. >> and orange county. so do you really need a strategy going forward? it's not just go there. >> and it's such a huge state as well.
4:48 am
and in the media buys there are smo expensive. he's not going to be playing much in new jersey. new jersey was already on the map. he's got christie there, he's way ahead in the polls and feels he doesn't need to pay a lot of attention to that. after new york, pennsylvania, connecticut and maryland, california will be the next big focus for the trump campaign. >> is there a suggestion that that map trump gets the big states, new york, new jersey, pennsylvania and california, is there a suggestion given historically they have voted democratic, they may go for the republican in the general? >> i think new jersey you could make that case. california, i don't think so. you know, california went for ronald reagan in '84, but i don't necessarily think that it's going to go for donald trump or ted cruz or john kasich. >> it could change the map a little. >> the trend which is a great name from real clear politics on earlier. he thinks that trump is going to get there. listen. >> trump's had a bad month. he's only got about a quarter of the delegates since this became a three-man race. but things are going to turn around for him in the next
4:49 am
couple weeks. we expect him to come pretty close to sweeping the delegates out of these northeastern states, places like new york, rhode island, connecticut. that puts him a little bit over 1,000 delegates. so about a 200-delegate shortfall. >> a couple things going in trump's favor real quick. this idea that people's votes are being taken away. it's getting a lot of traction. that's going to help him get people out to the polls and china is now saying trump's an irrational man. just making the case for trump. >> absolutely. >> john roberts in from the trail on the couch. >> good to be inside where it's not snowing. >> a couple more days in new york. we have results soon. meanwhile -- >> president obama heading to saudi arabia amid over that country's role in september 11th, 2001. what does hillary clinton have to say about that? >> i don't really know about that, george. i'll have to look into it. >> really? brett baier with reaction, top of the hour. next, how is steve's
4:50 am
car-cooked breakfast coming along? does it taste like prestone? we're lifting up the hood and somebody will taste. >> not me. >> come on. it's bacon. >> how much did you cook? wow! >> that's enough for the whole crew. look like this. feel like this. look like this. feel like this. with dreamwalk insoles, turn shoes that can be a pain into comfortable ones. their soft cushioning support means you can look like this. and feel like this. dreamwalk.
4:51 am
4:52 am
4:53 am
all right. earlier we showed you this moment from "fox & friends" last week. >> when i was a boy scout, our scoutmaster was telling me about you realize you can cook with your car. >> we should do that on the plaza. >> and last hour, we got the process started. >> wrap that up. actually put that in one more time, and we'll secure that right here. perfect. and then i start the engine up,
4:54 am
and i let it go. >> all right. you ready? >> i'm ready to go. >> go. go! and now he's back. the owner of metropolitan catering has been making us breakfast, cooking right under the hood of his jeep. the key is for anybody watching, and there are a bunch of radiator recipes online. >> there are. there are. >> you've got to feel and make sure you find the hottest part. >> you're allowed to touch the radiator like that? >> absolutely. just be careful. there's a couple moving parts and look at and tell what you should and should not touch. never lick the dipstick. >> so true. >> never shove anything down there. but as you'll see -- >> look at that. >> so you've done this before. >> i have. >> i actually have done it before. >> you've done this before? >> this is ready to eat? >> ready to eat. you can just pull that off. we have some asparagus. >> is this good during, like, a hurricane? >> this would be good if everything else just cuts off and you just have a car.
4:55 am
if you're in the middle of the woods. i've got potatoes over here. those should be done as well. >> you know, if you think about it, if you're going to go on a road trip and you're going to have dinner, when you get there, you might as well cook on the raid eighty diato radiator. >> why not? those are roasted sweet potatoes, a little hash, some asparagus. >> it's amazing. >> is this good when you're in traffic to get out and just check your food? >> if you have a long distance, this is great. throw a slab of ribs on there. if you've got to drive four or five hours. four or five hours, it's good. >> now, if you burn it, could you call aaa? >> brian. >> i don't know if they would cover it. >> tow me to a restaurant. >> do you call it tailgating when you go to the back end of the car. what do you call this? >> frontgating. >> i guess radiating. >> you made some frittatas. >> down in here.
4:56 am
>> i've got it all situated down there. >> what is that? >> nice and securely. >> be careful, brian. >> these are not quite set. you'll see they've started to set. these probably need another 15 -- yeah, this probably needs another 15 minutes. >> go around the block one more time. >> he's making a frittata, but they're not quite ready. maybe another hour. >> chef, thank you. very, very nice. and our thanks to jeep for providing our mobile kitchen today. i think we might have to power wash that. >> you can't do this with a hybrid. >> elit your cub scout leader it works. he's going to join us in just a couple minutes. >> who could resist kellie pickler with a puppy. >> no one. >> would she like some bacon?
4:57 am
with's free cancellation, you could just forget the beach wedding... and the beach booty... you could just book a different resort. like in alaska. they've got igloos. when they thought they should westart saving for retirement.le
4:58 am
then we asked some older people when they actually did start saving. this gap between when we should start saving and when we actually do is one of the reasons why too many of us aren't prepared for retirement. just start as early as you can. it's going to pay off in the future. if we all start saving a little more today, we'll all be better prepared tomorrow. prudential. a combination of see products.. and customers. every on-time arrival is backed by thousands of od employees, ...who make sure the millions of products we ship arrive without damages. because od employees treat customer service... our most important delivery. od. helping the world keep promises.
4:59 am
5:00 am
good morning. it is monday, april 18th, tax day. i'm ainsley earhart. donald trump is dominating the new york polls. the day before the critical primary, but he is still calling foul on the whole process. >> it's a rigged system. it's a crooked system. it's 100% crooked. >> so how is the establishment reacting to that? bret baier is live with the scoop inside the beltway. saudi arabia warning the united states that our economy could suffer if congress passes a bill that holds saudi arabia responsible in some part for what happened on september the 11th. what does hillary clinton think about that? >> i don't really know about that, george. i'll have to look into it. >> it's been around for several years. >> well, i know there's been an issue about it for quite some time. >> yeah, well, how do you feel
5:01 am
about it? that from the former senator of new york. more on that story straight ahead. >> i couldn't believe it, they quickly changed that story. you remember when they burst on the scene on "american idol." ♪ since you've been gone ♪ i can breathe for the first time ♪ ♪ i'm so movin' on ♪ yeah, yeah ♪ thanks to you >> wow, i think she was perfect there. now kellie pickler is here to talk family, the "idol" finale and her reality show as her in-laws move to nashville. >> all right! we love her! >> right. ainsley loves her. >> i do. i've followed her whole career. >> but in rehearsal, there was no cross-talk. but on the real show, there is. mornings are better are "friends." ♪ ♪ if you know what happiness is to you ♪
5:02 am
are you happy? today is tax day. at midnight, you've got to file your taxes by tonight, and we've got festivities outside. we've got singing, dancing, punching. look at that. and also relieving stress. >> that is title boxing for the everyday boxer, not people that want to turn pro. here's also a great way to deal with tax day. drink it away. >> yes, that's a stress reliever for sure. we have kellie pickler out there with puppies on the massage chair. >> by the way, that's planet fitness's massage chair. >> that's right. we thank them. and look at these guys. they've got some moves. >> yes, they do. i love today because it's over with, finally. i just got mine done on friday. >> friday? >> friday. i was a late one. >> which was april 15th. you know why the deadline is today, april 18th? >> why? >> because they had -- they gave the irs friday off because it was a holiday. they were honoring emancipation day on friday. so they all got the day off down
5:03 am
in washington. >> and guys have a dependent this year. >> she was born at the end of the year. and that counts! >> finally the kid's paying off. >> finally. so anyway, if you have questions about taxes or you would like to vote on the song that ainsley is going to sing on karaoke -- >> try to sing. >> -- go to our facebook page. i know heather's already weighed in. >> you know i am. >> a little whitesnake for me, "here i go again," that's the song. whitesnake, absolutely. christmas party. that's right. that's what we're doing. come on along. all right. getting serious now, we've got a fox news alert to bring you. and there is a hunt right now for two brothers suspected of killing a u.s. army ranger, a former army ranger, and also his wife. washington state police warning that these men, john and tony reed, are armed and danger ous. investigators say they have video of the brothers dumping the couple's car 15 miles from
5:04 am
their home. the couple lived near john and received death threats from an unknown neighbor earlier this year, and they were in the middle of a legal battle. they've not been seen in a week and are now feared dead. u.s. troops arriving in japan overnight with the help of rescue efforts after two earthquakes there killed at least 42 people and left 10 others missing. well, this is the death toll. and the 7.8 magnitude earthquake in ecuador now climbs to 272. it's being called the strongest quake in decades. crews searching for survivors there, but they're also struggling to reach the hardest-hit areas. there have been heavy rains and massive landslides there, as you can see. in the meanwhile, the west coast is now on a high alert as more earthquakes could possibly hit areas around the region that's known as the ring of fire. that's in the pacific. and johnny depp and his wife, amber heard, they they are very sorry about smuggling their two pooches into australia last year. listen to this apology.
5:05 am
>> i am truly that pistol and boom were not declared. protecting australia is important. >> declare everything when you enter australia. >> do you buy that pair? well, a bit of a bizarre apology. it was posted to facebook shortly after the couple appeared in court. heard pleading guilty to faking border documents after bringing the pups on a private jet to the gold coast. and that's where depp was filming another "pirates of the caribbean" movie. the dogs were then deported and she was fined 1,000 bucks and handed a one-month good behavior bond, whatever that is. they looked so funny in that one. okay. i christen the rrs boaty mcboatface. that was the overwhelming choice in a public vote to name a nearly $300 polar research ship. britain's national environment research council conducted a poll for names that were inspirational about environmental and polar science. but when a former bbc presenter suggested boaty, it quickly became the crowd favorite, winning by a landslide with more
5:06 am
than 120,000 votes. but there's no guarantee they'll follow through with that name. what do you think of that? those are your headlines. >> boaty mcboatface. >> i'll pass on that one. >> no nickname -- thanks, heather. no nicknames for our next guest. he's all over the channel. he is getting set for a special report which starts any minute. bret, welcome back. >> good morning. i just finished my radiator bacon and i'm ready to go. >> it actually was surprisingly good. >> was it? >> yeah. >> it was tasty. let's talk politics because that's your department. of course, a lot -- you know, one of the great things is so many people are energized, bret, about this particular election cycle. and not only are people excited to go vote, but they're learning so many different things about how each state works. for instance, in colorado and wyoming and some other places, you know, you don't go out the average person and vote. they've got delegates. they've got conventions and people are going, wait. i don't get to vote. donald trump has turned that into a campaign slogan that the
5:07 am
system is rigged. is it working? >> it is working for him. and it is a very powerful message on the stump for him to deliver. his audience is very loyal to begin with. but when you start getting into the system is rigged, they say, yeah, you know, kick over the table in washington. start over again. so it's a powerful rhetorical argument. it's not the best argument overall because everybody knew for months and months and months what the system was going to be. the fact that we're focused in on these states where they have state conventions and pick delegates is just the fact that this race has gone on a lot farther than people thought it was going to before a nominee was going to be chosen. so everybody knew the rules, but still, this is a powerful argument on the stump for trump. >> i mean, if the rules don't change for donald trump to come out and say that he's not in favor of the whole process, a lot of americans are anti-establishment, so they're going to jump on board with this. we had eric trump on the curvy couch earlier.
5:08 am
this is what he said about the process. >> it is a corrupt system. he's 100% right. look at colorado. the people didn't even get to vote. that's not democracy. i mean, people in the united states, they vote. and here you have a little boys club and they decide who they want to be commander in chief. we live in america. people get to vote. and the fact that my father is millions and millions of votes ahead, yet delegates keep on getting stripped from him, it really is a broken system. >> so that's going to be their push. win on the first ballot. if it goes through another ballot, the system is broken because so far ted cruz has done a great job at accruing delegates. >> yeah, he's better organized. that's the bottom line. if trump gets over 50% which he's poised to do in new york and he starts compiling these states especially in the northeast, he could get to 1237. most analysts think he's going to come just shy. but clearly we'll have the most delegates going in, but it's possible that he gets the majority. >> sure. so there's another big story out there, bret, and it's about saudi arabia. and ironically, it's the
5:09 am
president, in terms of timing, is going to be visiting saudi arabia shortly. you've got a bipartisan group of senators led by senator cornyn and senator schumer that are pushing to get rid of the sovereignty rules that allow -- that prevent people from suing other nations. for example, the 9/11 families for suing saudi arabia, for playing a role they believe in the killing of 3,000 americans on 9/11, 2001. hillary clinton and bernie sanders weighed in. do you support the president who says i don't want to see this rule go forward, kill it in congress, or do you support the families and these two senators? listen. >> i don't really know about that, george. i'll have to look into it. i'm not able to take a position. >> it's been around for several years. >> well, i know -- i know there's been an issue about it for quite some time. >> how do you intend to vote as a senator? >> well i need more information before i can give you a decision.
5:10 am
you're asking me to give you a decision about a situation and a piece of legislation that i am not familiar with at this point. and i've got to have more information on that. so you've got to get some information before you can render, i think, a sensible decision. >> do you buy those answers, bret? >> well, listen. this has been around for a long time. >> yeah. >> the justice sponsors against terrorism act has a lot of support. it essentially would allow the 9/11 families to put saudi arabia on trial in a u.s. federal court because of what is believed to be some connection between financing the 9/11 hijack hijackers, you remember the "60 minutes" piece with the 28 pages. one hour after hillary clinton said that, her campaign came out and said, you know what? she does support the bill. and that was very strange. she made a point of saying i'm not going to jump to conclusions. >> yeah. >> and then one hour later came out with a statement.
5:11 am
i think that this is a powerful thing ahead of the president's trip, and obviously it increases tensions between the two countries. >> and just to underline, the president, that's going against president obama. hillary clinton and bernie sanders, if bernie sanders goes the same way, against president obama on this. >> yeah. and that's a significant point. and i think, listen, republicans will be asked about this, too. and essentially it's cut and dried. it's about a possible sponsors of terrorism being put on trial by victims in federal court. >> yeah, that's the last thing saudi arabia wants. let's see what happens. bret, thank you very much. >> thank you, bret. >> i heard you might do a special report at any minute. >> any minute. or 6:00, either one. >> we'll watch it. thank you, bret. and by the way, saudi arabia and ainsley, so upset, they say we'll sell american t-bills -- >> treasuries. >> -- yeah, treasuries, if you go ahead and pass this. >> that's called blackmail. that's what they're saying.
5:12 am
meanwhile, over the weekend, donald trump finally revealed he has figured out a nickname he thinks fits hillary clinton, and here's the thing. he hopes this sticks. >> and then, of course, we have crooked hillary. crooked hillary, folks. she's been crooked from the beginning, and to think that she has a shot at being our president, crooked hillary clinton. we can't let it happen. >> bernie sanders responded just a few minutes ago. take a listen on another morning show. this is what he had to say. >> donald trump is test driving a new nickname for hillary clinton, "crooked hillary." maybe he uses fewer words, but have you been making the same argument against her? >> what i have said regarding secretary clinton, what i have said is we have a corrupt campaign finance system in which billionaires -- >> she's gone further, you have said -- you have said that she accepts this money from wall street or big banks or fossil

fox 26 houston's sally mcdonald live on the ground with the latest. >> reporter: this is no joke out here this morning. we are in the middle of an historic flood event happening right now in houston, harris county. we've seen such a significant amount of rainfall overnight, and it continues to come down. close to 20 inches in some areas where i am near bush intercontinental airport. we've received upwards of 11 inches. i can tell you that bush airport has a complete ground stop right now. you'll want to twentiy definit with your flight carrier. right now we're along what's known as a service road here in houston. this is one of the main arteries into downtown. the main roads are moving fine, but you can see that this road is under water. lots of folks have been trying to come down here and make it through. but it's just not a good idea. emergency crews scrambling to put up barricades at places like this because so many people are driving into the high water and are completely caught off guard
5:19 am
this morning. we have more than 100 high-water rescues going on right now. hundreds if not thousands of homes have taken in water. and just about every school district in the greater houston area is closed today. this all happened, keep in mind, in the middle of the night. so a lot of people went to bed, they heard the rain. they heard the thunder and lightning. but if it's not your routine to continually check weather updates and turn on the news in the morning, a lot of folks were getting up 5:00 a.m. when it's still dark outside to head into work, and places that don't typically flood are flooded this morning. houston no stranger to major flood events, but this one is definitely going to be one for the record books. our photographer can turn around here and see all of the cars that are getting just about up to where we are. they see our camera. never a good idea when you see a camera, you know that it's probably not a good idea to drive down this road. so we're sort of acting as the roadblock this morning for a lot of folks because emergency crews are scrambling to get those roadblocks in place to save

5:38 am
in many cases. and if they do vote, their vote isn't really representative of what it should be. we have this delegate system which is a sham. >> there are a few states that pick delegates by convention. it's their choice how they allocate delegates. the candidates participate in the process. it's been going on for a month in each of these states that do a convention. but ultimately, about cleaning things up, it's up to the delegates. >> so will the rnc consider new rules to keep trump from the nomination? let's talk to former chief of staff to president george w. bush, karl rove, and democratic strategist joe trippi. they're sitting next to each other in our nation's capital. good morning to you guys. >> morning. >> morning. >> karl, let's start with you. there's stories out there that republican leaders are considering rewriting convention rules before the convention. i don't know if they've done those in the past years, but given the fact that donald trump has been so effective saying the system is rigged, all these party bosses are pulling the strings, this would be a terrible time to do that, wouldn't it?
5:39 am
>> well, yeah. in fact, recognize this. the republican national committee has a rules committee. it sets the rules for the meetings of the republican national committee, for the election of the national chairman and so forth. it does not make the rules for the convention. it can give advice. it can make recommendations. but the rules for the convention are set by a committee of 112 people, 2 from each state, territory, and commonwealth. who meet at the week before the convention and set the rules. most of those rules have been in place for most of 160 years. they're very rarely any significant change in the rules for the convention. and my suspicion is with all of this conversation, the chairman of the rnc rules committee says he wants to make some recommendations. the national committee man from oregon says we must throw out the precedent of using the house representatives rules. this is much to do about nothing because at the end of the day the rnc rules committee can make recommendations, but it's the
5:40 am
rn -- it's the republican national convention rules committee that actually does the work. >> you know, and joe, one of the things a lot of people are learning is that the primary system is so different in so many different states. some have a convention. some pick their delegates in different ways. some caucus. some just actually go out and vote. but what donald trump has been effective in a little while ago we were talking to bret baier, and he thought it was effective, is the same thing that bernie sanders has been talking about, how the system is rigged. and that does seem to resonate with people out there. >> well, it's certainly going to resonate with his supporters, and bernie with his, but the reality is, look, the rules in both parties can't stop someone who's getting 50% of the vote across all the states. somebody who's enrolling actually ends up with the nomination if they're consistently getting over 50 prepare the reason you're having all these questions and issues this time is because on the republican side, trump, yes,
5:41 am
he's winning and cruz has won some, but no one's dominating yet and winning over a majority of the delegates. if that starts happening now through the rest of the way, i doubt there's going to be much of a contested convention. if he can do that. if he were, none of these rules would matter at all. >> yeah. >> but he's not. and that's why, frankly, since 1976, there has not been a contested convention because at some point, a front-runner takes over, and the party starts rallying behind them. it started with 17 candidates this time. certainly not -- certainly trump's performed well, but he's got to pull -- start doing much better to actually take it to the convention without these rule as plying. >> let's imagine for just a moment, we're on the mclaughlin group, exit question, real short, joe trippi first up, does donald trump get 1237 at the first ballot? >> yeah, i think he will. >> karl? >> i think it's very much up in the air. because we're going to come down

5:51 am
convention in july? joining us right now, peter johnson jr. peter, is it rigged? >> regrettably, the system is rigged. let's look at new york state. delegate selection. 27 districts total. three delegates per district. more than 50% of district votes needed are in all three delegates. if you don't get more than 50%, the runner-up gets one. the other folks get two. let's look at the new york democratic primary in this state. delegate selection is actually chosen by the voters. you vote for a person who's pledged to a candidate. all pledged candidates selected proportionately, superdelegates already selected. critically let's look at what donald trump is talking about. the new york congressional districts with regard to the gop primary. 27 districts total. three delegates per district. more than 50% of the district votes needed to earn all three delegates. and chosen by the party leaders. based on the candidate's primary result. these leaders select -- select
5:52 am
the delegates not tomorrow in new york but in may. >> sure. >> so the state committee men, 300, decide who are the delegates going to be on the gop side at the convention in july. >> sure. ted cruz has been very effective at winning. >> he has. >> delegates at these conventions. but then donald trump has been very effective in saying hey, did you know that this state, this is how you did it? didn't you want to vote? >> unfortunately to a great extent, americans' vote do not matter in these primaries. they get one, maybe two if they're lucky votes at a convention. >> right. >> after that, the state party leaders the people who bring the delegates to the dance, will have those folks dance. they will decide in the end if it's on the second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth ballot. donald trump needs to win on the first ballot if he wants to win this race. and obviously he does. his chances diminish after the first ballot because of the way gop and dem party bosses run american primaries. they have continue
