3:06 am
that's yet to be determined. how did your daughter get in the tournament? >> well, we have to get right into the news. they played hard. steve: anyway, we are back together. donald trump had two wins yesterday. ford decided to stay in the united states and the second is the republicans have caved on ethics rules. yesterday we told you about how monday night the house republicans were plan to go gut the chambers ethics office which was kind of tone-deaf, should not be the first move made in the people-powered american government and donald trump agreed and went out on twitter yesterday morning to take the republicans to task. >> this is his tweet. with all the congress has to work on, do they have to make the weakening unfair as it is maybe, their number one act in
3:07 am
priority, focus on tax reform, health care and so many other thicks that are far greater important. #drain the swamp. >> next thing you know they had a meeting in the basement, let's just reverse this. i don't know who brought this up. speaker of the house and mac -- mccarthy. if you look at at the ethics yok at what is wrong. ainsley: every business has someone you go to. a complaint about an employee. steve: hey, the republicans in power and now they're making it harder for them to get into trouble. so anyway, he sent that stuff out. donald trump was using those tweets very effectively.
3:08 am
listen to this. >> the tweets are working, if they weren't, they wouldn't be using them. what trump is doing is wielding a two by four. these guys are mules. that was about the dumbest first take you could ever make. you don't do it in the middle of the night and you don't do it without democratic support. just plain stupid. ainsley: i agree with him. you're probably like all of us, you're glued to fox news on, yesterday even after cooking, i was watching the whole time. we were watching the swearing in, the s this the first order of business. >> i had some coworkers, heather and her kids. we were off -- steve: we were suppose today get heather's kids gifts.
3:09 am
ainsley: she gives hayden a gift every month. it's time for me to shower her with some gifts. >> let's again switch gears a little bit. the president elect of the united states has been doubtful about whether the russians did or did not hack into john podesta's emails as well as the dnc's emails and revealed what was going on behind the scene making them look terrible. at the end of the week, i'm going to be getting a briefing this week about what the facts actually are for the intelligence community then i will let you know what's going on and where i stand. well, it turns out the briefing according to donald trump was delayed until friday. he tweeted this out, the intelligence briefing on the so-called russian hacking was delayed into friday, perhaps more time needed to build a case, very strange exclamation point. keep in mind nbc is reporting to anonymous intelligent source that it was always scheduled for
3:10 am
friday but that's what they're saying. ainsley: donald trump is saying, implying that do they not have enough evidence. we have yet to see any evidence and that's what he's insinuating there. steve: you saw sean hannity for in-person interview with julian assange who made it very, very clear. ecuadoran embassy in london. wikileaks did not get the stuff from russia or a state actor and interestingly enough regarding john podesta's emails which was the mother load of information that made the democrats look terrible, a 14-year-old could have hacked into his account. listen. >> a number of hacks at the dnc and podesta based on the public-available information, it's not something coming from our sources, we published as part of our policy a full disclosure not interfering with
3:11 am
material, we published the -- several podesta emails which shows podesta responding to fishing e-mail. now, how did they respond? podesta gave out password was the word password. his own staff said, this e-mail that you received, this is totally legitimate. so this is something a 14-year-old kid, a 14-year-old kid could have hacked. >> you have hillary clinton setting a server in her house which is definitely irresponsible and john podesta using a password named password and telling staff to go into e-mail and monitor along with him and you wonder, sophisticated nation led by vladimir putin is the one who exposed it. they were sitting there naked
3:12 am
for anyone to take is what he's saying. steve: a 14-year-old could do it. ainsley: you can catch the show at 10:00 o'clock at night and we will be talking about it every morning. the guy has been there, for four years he hasn't seen his children and he believes in what he is doing. steve: i got your kids some gifts. [laughter] >> good morning, good morning to all of you and ufo's, good morning, serious story from overseas now and it's a fox news alert. breaking developments in intensifying international manhunt for the turkey nightclub killer, police arresting five isis members overnight in turkey in connection to the new year's ' ve massacre which 39 people
3:13 am
left. authorities using surveillance video, brand-new video showing them at a turkish bus terminal last month. president obama rush to go empty guantanamo bay before he leaves office in just a few weeks. that news coming hours of mr. trump tweeted, quote, there should be no further releases from gitmo, these are extremely dangerous people and should not be allowed back on to the battlefield. according to the white house the president elect's opinion doesn't matter, that's because 178 detainees have been released so far under president obama. a familiar face on capitol hill, former vice president, liz elected to wyoming congressional seat that her dad held. if she wants my advice, she will ask for it. congratulations, liz. >> there you go.
3:14 am
>> got some presents. >> this is my favorite one.t >> we willan show you later. you wouldn't believe what's in this kiester. a farmer's market. a fire truck. even a marching band. and if i can get comfortable talking about this kiester, then you can get comfortable using preparation h. for any sort of discomfort in yours. preparation h. get comfortable with it.
3:15 am
3:16 am
>> house republicans to gut the ethics watchdog unit less than two hours after being called out by president-elect trump on twitter. reform it and joins us right now.
3:17 am
congressman, momentum went the other direction. do you think for the right reason? >> yeah, i think definitely for the right reason because the roll-out was done all wrong. anybody like president trump that has a feeling of fairness would immediate i will say, you don't want dilute the watchdog. we didn't educate people on how grossly unfair the doc is. they have no one accountable. you can blast somebody with ethics and you overwhelm them. we have people who had that happen but we didn't educate the public. that has to be done before we take that kind of action and i think that's what's you're going to see happen.
3:18 am
>> i sense that democrats probably want to reform it too. >> yeah, definitely. >> they could be targeted anonymously and they have to lawyer up and people think they are corrupt. >> that's right. >> meanwhile all the leadership to speak yesterday and the majority -- the minority leader of the senate chuck schumer taking over for harry reid ripped into donald trump over use of twitter, listen. >> making america great again requires more than a 140 characters per issue. with all due respect u america cannot afford a twitter presidency. >> nice sound bite but that's really -- it's not accurate depiction of what's happening with twitter, is it? >> well, of course, chuck schumer is a smart man. we have to give him that. he is. like a broken clock he's right a couple of times a day, but look at the other things he's been
3:19 am
saying. of course, he wants trump to get off twitter because he wants the public to hear nothing but "the new york times" and trump is not going to let that happen. he's going to get the final word and straighten them out when they lie about it but schumer also told us, if we didn't get on board with obamacare, our party would be gone because it was going to be so great, wrong on that, we needed to get on board with cap and trade because the country was going to be behind it and that was not only a tax, big tax that hurt poor people in america. we need to get behind president obama, our party was over, he said we needed embrace amnesty or our party was over. i'm grateful for his great help -- he represents the fringe party. you look at the areas hillary won, the fringes all the way -- >> but perhaps senator schumer,
3:20 am
somebody who wants to get things done and might be more to working with a guy he's known for 20 years. are you optimistic? >> yes, i'm optimistic because i think trump is not going to let "the new york times" have the last word and not going to let chuck schumer have the last word and we will be competitive in trying to fix what's wrong with america. >> we have to go to break. thanks so much for joining us. >> great to be with you. thank you. >> straight ahead democrats celebrating hike of minimum wage but you won't be because restaurants across the country raised prices. a business owner forced to raise prices on kid's menu. new york voted overwhelming for hillary clinton but not where pete hegseth is this morning, people can't get enough of pete, he keeps talking, i know he plays basketball at princeton

3:25 am
went wrong with wisconsin's voting machines. she likes some answers. all right. ainsley. ainsley: all right, thanks so much. minimum wage increasing in 19 different states in the new years but restaurants are being forced to pass along the cost to you, consumer. wage costs will cost six different restaurants $150,000 this year. that's a lot of money. mr. rex bryce, thank you for joining us. >> absolutely. how are you doing this morning? ainsley: i'm great. minimum wage going up. i'm learning by reading this article, you have to pass the cost onto customers which is actually hurting the customers? >> it's hurting the customers but maybe more importantly it's
3:26 am
importanting the people who really need the increase the most, the entry-level worker is who is going to end up getting hurt by this. >> like the poll incomes the back of the house, dish washers, people not getting a pay raise because the cost of the food is going up as well? >> yeah, that's exactly correct. so weave got, we have a situation where in our restaurants in particular our employees are entry-level jobs are, they earn more than minimum wage. tipped employees make minimum wage and those are the employees who will see the increase, taking money directly out of the pockets of the -- of the nontipped employees, dishwasher or the cook that could really see small income. ainsley: dishwasher, the guys that do all the hard labor, that's the tough work.
3:27 am
they're affected by this. the customers, the prices are going to go up. have you increased prices on the menu and what's the reaction from your customers? >> we have increased our prices, in december we overall increased prices about 5% which is about 3% more than we typically would. reaction at this point has -- we haven't had a lot of pushback. i am concerned over the next four years as minimum wage hike rolls out that it is not something that's sustainable and price increases may have to be greater than 5%. we will evaluate after first quarter and see where we are and see if we need to make any immediate adjustments, but for 2017, i have budgeted for 5% increase in sales, but i've budgeted for 9% increase in
3:28 am
labor expense. that's not a pretty picture. it's not good math and it doesn't help you sleep at night and if you roll that out over four years, it gets ugly fast. ainsley: they are working this out in a four-year process. rex, thank you so much. we wish you all the best. >> thanks for having me on. ainsley: please, somebody help the c-list celebrities take their country. >> to the extent that trump pursuits racist, antiimmigrant, antiworker, antienvironmental policies, we demand that you vigorously oppose him. ainsley: do you think the political ad is going to work? pete is having breakfast in long island, good morning to you, pete. peter: pumpkin chocolate

my conference would need to be behind. steve: yep. >> the plan is that we would repeal and replace at the same time. you see, what people want is health care that works and so we, what we do is we in essence repeal obamacare. we use the money in the system. and we make sure it works. and we do away with the system that is unfair and that is that the pretax contributions, all americans would get the same amount. till with be a great bill. steve: chairman, there are parts of the current obamacare people do find attractive. for instance, if you have a preexisting condition you can't be denied. >> that would stay. steve: lifetime, no lifetime cap on benefits. >> you're right, but the three most onerous parts of the obamacare plan, the individual and business mandate and the cadillac tax all need to go. it's a disincentive to hire full-time employees.
4:48 am
and our republican congress well understands that we will take charge of health care in this country with whatever we do, so we've got to do it correctly. i believe the plan that this congress can accomplish is going to be great and i believe president trump can sign it. steve: okay, you're saying you will replace it. repeal it first, and then replace it, there won't be a long gap between it. you just mentioned president trump. president trump on the stump running for president said, you know, some folks in my own party might not like this, everybody is going to get coverage. under your plan, does everybody wind up being covered? >> in fact they do, and that's the whole point. it is a replace in the place at the same moment. it is amending the bill and allowing every single individual an opportunity to have the same tax advantages. and of course it will mean that large team sizes, immediately are formed. bottom line is, we should not
4:49 am
allow it to be part of reconciliation where we give away the money. steve: right. >> then have a trillion dollar tax plan we've got to support and use the next three years and we can effectively do that. steve: good to hear you're going to get rid of it. my daughter is on obamacare. it is terrible. >> i am too. steve: all last year she never got a single dollar's worth of health benefits because she had such a high deductible everything came out of her pocket. >> every member of congress understands that obamacare is twice as expensive from a premium perspective and $3600 for a deductible. it is unusable plan. steve: they will fix it with the world's greatest health care plan. chairman pete sessions from texas. sir, thank you very much. happy new year. good luck to you. you have got a big job. >> you bet. steve: you bet. all right, ten minutes from the top of the hour on this wednesday. straight ahead a vermont mayor is welcoming refugees from syria in his town because they need

cook, army reserve colonel, who lived in rutland his entire life. dr. cook, this will bring revenue and diversity to your community. that is what the mayor says. do you feel differently? >> yes i do, brian, thanks for having me on. the problem is that, to take a community as poor as rutland, and we are probably second poorest community in the state, and to bring poor people into our community and expect some kind of economic boom out of it, and, i'm trying to be polite about this, seems delusional to me. and, we have situation in our city right now fully 1/3 of the average household income comes from public assistance. we have a welfare rate that is five points higher than the rest of the state. we have a real problems. we have a drug issue. there was an article just a few weeks ago, three weeks ago, that "wall street journal" published an article, look it up, google,

public. that has to be done before we take that kind of action. brian: and probably that first. ainsley: people out there at the diner, and i remember one of his this morning. he asked people what's most important. no one said the ethics committee. this is what they said. the va, the economy, the refugee problem. build the wall. steve: yeah, you know, it's just optics. the first thing the republicans do is they make it harder to get in trouble. and you know after donald trump tweeted that out, and they said you know what? let's postpone it. man i we'll talk about it in august. last night if you were watching the legacy media, pinch me. but they actually said night things about donald trump. you probably missed it, so here's a montage. >> the best late plans of republicans are the head of steam and ambitious to-do list went off the rails this opening day of the new congress after a tweet from donald trump. the president-elect's tweet sent gop lawmakers in full retreat and damage repair mode today. >> president-elect donald trump sending a message to

very strange. brian: well, the thing is there's another network reporting that the briefing was supposed to be on friday anyway. steve: yeah. brian: donald trump obviously -- steve: well, because he was out towards last week with his celebration for new year's, and he said i'm going to tell you more on tuesday or wednesday. now it turns out it's friday. but also, let's see. 40 minutes ago, he also tweeted this. jewel an said a 14-year-old could have hacked padestta. why was the dnc so careless? also he said russians did not give the info. sean had last night. ainsley: and the reason he said a 14-year-old could hack the e-mail because his password was password. so we never got the memo. that should never be your password.

5:17 am
eri eric erickson. good morning to you. >> good morning. steve: we have a kid in here, they're not squeaking about your appearance today. he made it very clear he was build the wall and then after elected, people said he's not building the wall. turns out his people are talking to the department of homeland security to build the wall right now. >> yeah. they've asked for all the valuable assets and what's on the border. remember, there was a section on the border that was covered by national guard troops and other personnel by president bush and when he left and president obama came in, he removed all of those people, and it looks like based on the request, the trump administration, at least they want to put those people back. remember, congress still has to appropriate the funds to build the wall, but they definitely want to secure the border again. steve: some of the things that the team asked for is how much federal resources available to build the wall. how much was available.
5:18 am
also they want a list of executive orders that president obama issued regarding immigration. and that's critical because they were asking did they pass any -- did they write any regulations, for instance, for the dreamers to change their status or to hide information based on various things. >> right. you know, daca, the deferred program for children is actually here in children, we had a state judge yesterday ruled that illegal aliens can get in with television. states are running to this issue already, it looks like the trump administration wants to reverse that very quickly because it's driving up cost to states, particularly along the border. steve: uh-huh. now, eric, i know you were critic at times of donald trump before he was elected president of the united states. but the border wall is something that has united a lot of people because they feel like unless we can secure our own border, we will never be a sovereign nation. so what they're doing right now, you like; right?
5:19 am
>> yeah. very much so. listen, i never believed in immigration reform. how can you have a comprehensive plan when you still have people coming across the border? steve: sure. >> secure the border and all of a sudden the discussion changes. it seems like sovereignty 101. secure your border as a nation. steve: absolutely. in the meantime, we've got the news today that it looks as if the republicans on capitol hill caved after essentially gutting the house chambers ethics office after donald trump did some tweeting. that was the right thing for republicans to do. because it was the dumb thing to do first out of the gate. >> it was really dumb. they completed distracted from the first day. the headlines could have been about the obamacare repeal and instead it became about ethics. steve: and you have a win about ford. not going to build that factory in mexico. going to keep jobs here. eric, i have a feeling you like what donald trump's doing right now. >> so far, some of the russian
5:20 am
stuff is troublesome to me but the domestic stuff. listen, he's more product right now than george w. bush was when he came into office in 2001. but i do have a concerned about a strong man in washington essentially bullying american businesses. i have a free market guy. they should go where they want. but it's good they're forcing ford to reconsider their options rather than saying goodbye like the obama administration didn't seem to care. but ford said we like the idea of lower taxes, america is a good place to do business. eric erickson joining us today from georgia. eric, thank you very much. >> thank you. steve: meanwhile we show you this fine chilling video. toddler saving his twin brother who was trapped under a fallen dresser. this story ended particularly well. the brother picked up the dresser. but it could have been prevented. what every parent needs to know about securing a dresser in your kid's bedroom coming

[laughter] >> so these are simple
5:27 am
furniture straw backs. you can pick these up at any hardware store. ainsley: sometimes furniture comes with these, but you say they're not good. >> this is what you're going to get from typical furniture. this is what you're going to use as a professional. the furniture must be sold with these straps. but this is what they give you. a professional grade furniture strap, an l bracket, you can attach this to the wall, screw that in top if you don't have knowledge or time. you can buy these in any home store. but screw this into the back of furniture. brian: uh-huh. ainsley: right? >> screw this into a stud wall, you're going to need a stud finder, unless you have knowledge. ainsley: what if you can't find a stud. >> it's imperative. you don't want to go into sheetrock with it. >> this will find it; right?
5:28 am
>> you can get a handyman to come find a stud for you. ainsley: there's always a stud. i know this is a stupid question. is there always a stud? >> concrete walls or brick walls aren't going to have studs all the time. so you're going to go with cement crews, concrete screws. ainsley: there's always a way. brian: it goes in one side; right? and where does the other side go? >> you screw into the stud in the back. put them on a angle so that it holds the furniture down. brian: right? >> rather than pulls it out. ainsley: now, thomas, do we need to secure everything. like, if you're walking around my apartment or his house, what do we secure? >> i would recommend anything that is taller than it is deep. this is height. this is depth. so we definitely want to secure this piece. as you saw in the video, it doesn't take much. these drawers out, i'm only putting about 20 pounds on this. it's going to come right over. ainsley: a lot of dressers have a tv top of it.
5:29 am
so it's added weight. >> statistically you're looking at one child a week i believe now dies from furniture. i know we did the injuries. but the deaths. really, does it matter how many kids got hurt before your? if your child gets hurt, it's your child. i don't think the parents in this video really are concerned about how many kids got hurt before theirs. brian: and people say they build furniture so cheap today, it's so light. >> with the last ikea recalls, they sold the furniture straps with that piece, and they didn't use the furniture straps. you have to use the furniture straps. it doesn't matter about the wood. it doesn't matter about anything. you have to use the furniture straps. ainsley: what's the name of your company if people want to call you. >> all-star baby safety. brian: and what's the name of the car that makes such a great noise. >> than daniel's car, getting the word out, this video has saved thousands of lives in the future to come. ainsley: would be embarrassing but, yeah.
5:30 am
>> people online are talking about them. but they really did such a great service to this to children. ainsley: it could happen to anyone. >> saved thousands of lives by releasing this. nobody knows it's the low dressers. everybody assumes it's the tall stuff. but the low stuff, they don't think about. ainsley: and the grace of god that child is okay. not a scratch, parents said. >> and so am i. brian: you have kids that are healthy. >> so am i. ainsley: a convicted cop killer has serious health issues. so should you be fitting the bill for his drugs? what if we told you they're costing you the taxpayer, $54,000. brian: right and today is national spaghetti day. and that got me thinking how will bill o'reilly celebrate? favorite spaghetti to join us next. when cold and flu hold you back
