3:01 am
we have the washington monument in the back and the water behind us. as the sun comes up, we will see that behind us. brian: donaldonald trump is stil in new york. he briefly checked out the digs to make sure it's oak as any of us would do. steve: gave it a thumbs up. brian: going to go through ceremonial things but getting use to the fact that in less than a day he will be the president of the united states. take most of the weekend after and make monday a true work day. steve: it does sound like on friday he could get out of bic pens. maybe a fancy trump pen by friday and he could sign up to 200 executive orders rescinding things from the obama administration. at least that's what judge napolitano feels and he sat down with donald trump in the last 48 hours. here is the judge talking about just that listen to this. >> things like immigration where the president obama by executive orders directed the
3:02 am
government not to deport people who were here unlawfully if they had children while they were here. probably clean air where president obama he reduced the amount of pollutant parts per billion before the federal government's enforcement powers are triggered. probably guns because president obama sent horrific executive order directing the bureau of alcohol, tobacco, firearms and explosives to deem a single sale of a gun from you to me, from you to a nephew or a niece as making you a dealer, thereby, impose egg upon you some of the most burdensome onerous regulations in all the government. donald trump can undo all of that with a stroke of a pen. brian: right there. is so much anger and bitterness on capitol hill because the reality is donald trump is coming. he is going to be president. he ideology. much to the chagrin i don't know it's on the tip of my
3:03 am
tongue, chuck schumer who is upset that president-elect trump wants to drain the swamp. when he wants to drain the swamp he wants to put people in that think like him. schumer doesn't think that. ainsley: is he not drilling the swamp is he filling it up with billionaires and millionaires. we need to remind chuck schumer set swamp. the swamp is washington. steve: absolutely, washington historically has been swamp land and a lot of mosquitoes here. brian: very much. ainsley: it literally is the swamp. steve: look, it's donald trump's party and the democrats are going to do everything they can in the next 30 hours to try to diminish him and his presidency. here is chuck schumer talking about all those people trump wants. they're bad. >> this is a swamp he cabinet full of bankers and billionaires. many of them have hard right views. some of which directly contradict promises that the president-elect campaigned on. now, it's no surprise republicans are trying to
3:04 am
risch through these hearings. they don't want people to know the true view of their nominees. brian: that is not true. he doesn't want to know the true views of his nominees because they are the antithesis of some of his. amazing. so anger thrown at some of these nominees from elizabeth warren to bernie sanders. you will hear that later. i also bring up this. the pace of the donald trump administration, whether you like everything or don't, is going to be quick. he is a guy of action. so he put a whole bunch of people up quickly. they want to get confirmed quickly because he wants to work quickly. but, guys, no one is getting confirmed. there is a few on deck. the hearings are taking place. but they just seem to be hanging out. ainsley: senator schumer is saying they don't have all the paperwork on these folks. he is saying it's a swamp cabinet as we were saying and they need to slow down these confirmations. if you look at the amount of hours that these folks are being grilled on the hill. it's many more hours than. so other cabinet positions or cabinet members that president
3:05 am
obama was trying to get through. for instance, tom price, dr. tom price was questioned for four hours. that's longer than any other hhs nominee since 1993. so i don't know what chuck schumer is talking about as far as slowing down the confirmation. they are pretty slow. steve: look, the democrats love the affordable care act even though there are many in this country that have obamacare but don't use it. ainsley: is he going to keep it. steve: that's his legacy. when dr. price was in the hot seat people like bernie sanders were sparring with him over healthcare. they would love to seat obamacare, affordable care act continue even though it doesn't help that many people ultimately. here is a little of the back and forth. >> do you believe that healthcare is a right of all americans whether they're rich or their poor? >> we are a compassionate society. >> no we're not a compassionate society. in terms of our relationship to poor and working people our
3:06 am
record is worse than virtually any other country on earth. we have the highest poverty. and half of our senior workers have nothing set aside for retirement. so i don't think compared to other countries we are particularly compassionate. >> if you want to talk about other country's healthcare systems there are consequences to the decisions they have made just as there are consequences to the decisions we have made. brian: here is the thing about price, he knows his stuff backwards and forward he is a medical dork. bernie sanders is a we want everything. i don't think he can balance his checkbook bernie sanders. if you listen to the content of it, it was really a knockout. i actually don't think democrats want obama care to continue. they know it's not working. they don't want it in their loss column. they are looking at it saying my goodness if we don't fix this soon. ainsley: we can't afford to have it. 100 pierce in some of states.
3:07 am
steve: democrats are saying look, 20 million americans will lose their healthcare if they relegal without replacing obama care. but there are 30 million americans right now who don't have healthcare. donald trump has made it clear that in his plan, whatever that is going to be like, everybody will have insurance. i will tell you over the weekend, i met a guy, sea nurse -- he is a nurse practitioner up in boston. he told me is on obamacare and he cannot afford to get sick because the premium is so high, the deduct of deductible he pay as high premium answered pay as high deductible he can never beat it he does not go to the doctor because he does not have the 200 bucks to see the doctor. brian: why it's so unpopular and why it's got to be changed. they have to be smart. rand paul saw it spoke to yesterday at night. steve: got to be better than what we have. brian: they also know you have got to come up with something.
3:08 am
you can't just say we got rid of that. ainsley: we were at an event last night and ran into rand paul can this work? can you repeal and replace. ainsley: he said i'm not going to vote for it unless there is a replacement. steve: so how many of donald trump's picks will actually be cabinet pick, secretaries are high advisors in the administration. ainsley: process for two weeks but they are not confirmed yet. steve: democrats are slow walking it. looks like there could be three, kelly, mattis and pompeo after day one. that pales in comparison of i barack obama's cabinet. seven. ainsley: on day one. ainsley: bill clinton had 13 on day two. steve: here is a number right now. there are 68 known democrats who got other plans, let's put it that way. ainsley: boycotting.
3:09 am
steve: will not be behind us 1.5 miles away at the inauguration of donald trump. brian: they are all in the house and none in the senate. the senate is all going. too much of a risk to stay home. these are 68 people. many of which aren't understanding up for congressman lewis and upset about the russians. they are upset they lost and their constituents believe, perhaps, don't want them to take parted in the american pro-sis. this is a flat out embarrassment. ainsley: i'm glad the senate did not do this and follow suit. hats off to them. we were talking last night about that with some folks at the event last night at the alabama's house. they said the -- ambassador' ho. why are these folks -- why are they boycotting? are they mad? are they angry? are they sad they don't actually want to see him get in office? steve: some of them say, like lewis said look, i don't view him as a legitimate president, but, when you think about that logic, okay, they are coequal parts of government. if the executive branch is not
3:10 am
legitimate, that means the legislative branch where they are is not legit plat. the government is not legitimate, so quit your job. ultimately though for those 68 people that aren't going to show up, they are going to miss an important part of his individual if donald trump does become a consequential president. ainsley: if he is not legitimate they aren't either. quit your job. brian: i don't think staying home is the plan, who knows maybe that is. steve: they are the party of no and it starts today. brian: let's say yes to one hither nauert. ainsley: yes. heather: hi, gang. i can't wait until the sun comes up. steve: 7:30 this morning sun up. ainsley: at some point you have to give us an education because at some point you lived here. i. heather: we will do a drive around town. hope you are all off to a great day. we start right now with a fox news alert. a desperate search is on for survivors after avalanche buries a three story hotel in italy according to local media

3:36 am
thattible. >> donald trump says is he not personally offended by it he said i could use the extra seats for my supporters. he is saying it hurts the country. device divides the country. >> i agree with that i thought humor was the best way to handle it tickets. i will take one of them by the if any democrats are listening i will take your ticket. sad we are used to being hyper partisan. one day we are supposed to come together, put everything aside and be a part of peaceful transfer of power. i would note, by the way, there are currently no u.s. senators that are skipping it all members of the house that are in safe distribution, very liberal districts. not like we have a lot of political courage. brian: chuck, is this a good move for the democratic party to show we are going to battle back and fight back in two years going to be a new story? >> welcome to washington, d.c. and politics in everything. so you are exactly right. so most of these members are in very safe seats i majority bright being in safe districts
3:37 am
and taking care of politics at home. right? sure we want everybody to participate pavement and sure republicans have boycotted obama before maybe not in these numbers. at the end of the day these folks are worried about politics at home. majority of their voters voted against donald trump. they have don't have repercussions they can go home and say i showed him. i didn't have even show up. i went over to chuck's house and had a barbecue. brian: are you disappointed in democrats. >> i think that what makes america great. if they don't want to go. donald trump can give their ticket to somebody else who does want to be here. i don't think it sets us back that much for few congressman to show up. ainsley: do you care if they don't show up. >> to each their own, i think it shows the level of hypocrisy from the left. it's the same thing with president obama and democrats acting so concerned about the wikileaks information. and then president obama pardons chelsea manning. blatant hypocrisy. this just exposes the level of hitch is i. i left of center think that chuck leaves to need morgan a voice message saying she is absolutely right so she can listen to it.
3:38 am
brian: just play it on a loop. ring tone e. steve: tomorrow at noon donald trump is going to be 1.5 miles behind us in front of the u.s. capitol. is he sworn in at noon. it looks as if by the end of the day he could sign his transition team four or five executive orders rescinding some stuff. what would you like him to do the first day? >> what i would like him to foe cuffs on which i think sends a powerful message at home and abroad is actually reversing sequestration. he has to work with the congress to do it. he can't do it as executive order. as all of your viewers know because you have talked about it so much sequestration is the cut of military funding that the military has experienced over the past several years has really hurt and damaged the military's ability to be ready around the world for any conflict. so i think that sends a message home here and america that we're going to have a strong military. that we're going to support our military. it also sends a message abroad that there is a new team in town, there is a new sheriff in town, and america means business when it comes to the
3:39 am
military and protecting our interest. steve: people should remember sequestration was invention of barack obama's administration. >> thanks obamama. he me. brian: chuck, we will be over for the cue. >> come on by. brian: janice dean we want to find out exactly where you are. you can give up the location? janice: i'm actually right below you. you can see me? if you go towards the window you would be able to see me. apparently i have the best beautiful shot of the capitol building right behind me which, of course, is where we are going to have an inauguration tomorrow. and unfortunately we are looking at rain in the forecast as early as around 7:00 a.m. so, i have also have some statistics here, the wettest inauguration was franklin roosevelt, 1937, 1.77 inches. that technically is a wash out. in 1961 they had 8 inches of snow right before president kennedy took office. a couple of statistics. the temperatures are going to be warm. that's the good news.
3:40 am
of the problem is there is going to be rain in the forecast as early as tomorrow. so people need to be prepared. don't bring your umbrellas. they might take them from you if you are here in the d.c. area getting close to the inauguration stage. all right. left's take a look at the maps and i will show you the d.c. forecast as we get into the day tomorrow. temperatures again warm. on the warm side. so, the average around this time is 37 degrees. we will be at 44 degrees. rain in the forecast. i mean, light rain on and off throughout the day. there's the forward, you see it moving to the d.c. area and then i mean the good news is the temperatures are going to be warm. it could be seven degrees, which is what the temperature was on he president reagan's inauguration 1985. so there's the silver lining. at least it's going to be warm. but we are going to see rain in the forecast. we're going to need our little bonnets, heather, back to you. ainsley: janice, it's a good excuse to go hat shopping let's do it today. januarit.

heather: president obama defending decision to let chelsea manning walk free three decades early. the president insists the commutation has nothing to do with julian assange's earlier promise to turn himself in to the united states if manning was released. >> let's be clear, chelsea manning has served a tough prison sentence. i don't pay a lot of attention to mr. assange's tweets, so that wasn't a consideration. heather: a tough prison sentence. charles krauthammer called what manning did treason. >> this was deadly. this is murder. this is treason. and obama expresses sympathy the sentence was too long originally? a generation ago, someone who did that on that scale would have been hanged. heather: as for assange's promise, his lawyer says he is

"fox & friends" are coming. brian: they don't donald trump. they know is he quite impactful, right? >> none of us know what to make of donald trump. why should the british be ahead of the rest of us. steve: newt, you have been coming to inaugurals going back to the reagan years. before we talk about those democrats who are skipping. just talking about what a great moment in america's history every four years this is. >> it's always extraordinary. calista and i are looking forward to mommy. we hope it doesn't rain. it's still -- you are at a moment when the nation is transferring power peacefully, unlike no other country has done this for as long as we have. you have all of the sense of the national establishment coming together, despite an daryl idiot. and you are in a situation where there is always optimism. it doesn't matter which team wins, we are a naturally optimistic country. i went to two obama inaugurals, feel positive about the future.
4:35 am
i went to clinton inaugurals. but at the same time, i think for me the very first inaugural with ronald reagan in '80 was amazing, both because the speech is so extraordinary but the day started cloudy. and jimmy carter got up to speak and said goodbye, and as reagan stood up, here. steve: here comes the sun. >> clouds parted, sun came. in sky was blue. we began to hear whispering amongst ourselves that the hostages had left iranian airspace. huh-uh you gipper had made difference. the speech was tremendous. i talked to somebody last night who had gone back and read first inaugural and said reagan's 1980 speech was just unbelievable. ainsley: what do you think he would say about these congress men and women that are boycotting. >> that they are childish and silly. it's not about republicans and democrats. it's about america. why would you abandon america? you remember a congress -- if
4:36 am
you work that hard to get to be part of the system. steve: newt, they are trying to score political points. >> all they are doing is making themselves look small and silly. their left loves them. as we used to learn the hard way, you can have your partisans love you for a long time and stay in the minority. brian: what's interesting by reports and you would know better, donald trump is looking at reagan's speech, looking at jfk's speech. he wants to make it 20 to 30 minutes and make it not about him, about the country. and he wrote the first draft himself. >> i believe that i have watched him work before. frankly, even when other people writes drafts he writes final speeches. he has a very strong sense of who he is and what his mission in history is. and he also has, frankly, a better sense of how to talk with the american people than any republicans since reagan. why would you turn to some speech write his or her doesn't understand it as well as do you. brian: even though steve miller knows him very well. >> steve miller knows trump very well and he has played a key role in this.
4:37 am
not like trump is hiding somewhere writing it. the notion that it is a trump directed speech that it's -- he understands this is his first really big moment in history to define who he is in the context of america. and in the process to help americans define their future. steve: your first big moment in history was when the republicans were swept back into power. you were speaker of the house, contract with america for america, what's the number one thing given your history on day one that donald trump could start doing tomorrow? >> well, i think he has made the decision to not start repealing things until monday. steve: maybe a couple. maybe four or five tomorrow. >> he might. i think there are a lot of things he could do tomorrow to begin to shift the whole system. and i think, for example, there is a very, very dangerous decision being made today by the energy commission on how we protect ourselves from electromagnetic pulses. it's designed as stupidly and destructively as possible. steve: what do you mean?
4:38 am
why? >> it's designed to get the energy companies to invest in stopping the lowest grade kind of problem which is a solar flare or a problem from space. steve: those happen occasionally. >> and we should protect us from that. 1859. if that happened again, it would knock out a huge part of our system. but it's the easiest thing to stop. what you really have to worry about are man made pulses probably by nuclear weapons. maybe by the north koreans, the chinese, you name it and to get the power companies going the wrong way, making the wrong investment, means when you get around to having a trump in office saying hey, guys, we need to really worry about practical immediate problems say wait a second. that's one of the things if i were him i would literally repeal late tomorrow. brian: i have a sense it's going to be a blinding amount, a dizzying amount of things coming down the pike between programs, changes, and executive orders. real quick, i have talked to so many different people on the trump staff who are dealing with obama staff and
4:39 am
they say the cooperation is off the charts. it's fantastic. much like bush to obama, which is a great thing for america. >> great thing for the country. brian: would the fact that the clinton initiative is laying off so many people, just a few weeks after her nomination fell apart, does that back up almost everything people were saying about this clinton global initiative? >> you mean that there was -- you know, pay for play and. steve: access. >> and that they were trying to buy her influence. do you think the fact that it all collapsed as soon as she lost could be a sign that maybe they weren't genuinely affectionate. they didn't actually love her, they loved her power. steve: it kind of proves what was going on. >> it does make you think maybe it wasn't being done out of saints of goodness. ainsley: mr. speaker do you have a message for brian that outed you on national television that you wear makeup. >> no my message. i have known brian for many, many years. my message is at some point in your career i will get even. [laughter] >> you won't know which day or
4:40 am
how it's going to happen. [laughter] >> but i'm going to consult with calista and we will find a wait a minute since she saw that i'm in real trouble. brian: i'm in real trouble. ainsley: 5-year-olds getting ready for kindergarten you left your cape downstairs. steve: you are a super hero to many. howe would you like to introduce janice dean who is out on the mall with the weather. brian: with the weather report you need. >> janice, i hope it's a good weather report. even if it's a bad one we still like you doing it. janice: oh, good. thank you. thank you for the disclaimer, mr. speaker. i appreciate that we are expecting rain, unfortunately, in the forecast. you can see behind me the capitol hill is right there. and they have got like white tile here. i'm hearing that as spectators come out tomorrow, things are going to get slippery because we are going to see rain in the forecast perhaps as early as 7:00 a.m. let's take a look at the maps and i will show you what we are talking about in terms of rainfall and the temperatures. so there it is. forecast temperatures as we go through time for the next 12 to 24 hours. that rain moves in. and we think getting into the

5:02 am
and then you can say whatever after. lawmakers saying about congressman lewis, they don't like the tweet back at him. or the russian thing or james comey. and actually if you go back to colin kaepernick and these celebrities who look at him as somebody who is unacceptable. that's who this is building. >> kevin asked a great core question the other day of the plaintiff about his final news conference. by the way, at the end of the year when he went to hawaii and everybody reported this is the last news conference, it is the longest goodbye. >> but somebody should have followed up because somebody asked. i don't want to get involved. okay. do you agree with john lewis that he is not a legitimate president? i would like to hear what president obama said about that. >> he said he was legitimate. >> right. and president obama asked again a previous last news conference said that this
5:03 am
was a free and fair elector. steve: well, it is firing up the left. no doubt. that the close to 70 democrats aren't showing up. also firing uprights. so many people are going, yeah, if they don't want to be part of history, don't show u up. >> i thought when ainsley won president-elect, we need more tickets. our own judge napolitano has been saying he talked to the president-elect, and they have teed up not a couple dozen but over 200 executive orders that they're ready to start rolling out over the next few days. there's going to be a lot of screaming and yelling and boycotting but there's going to be real action by this incoming president. ainsley: what? >> well, i think he may overturn immigration, energy regulations, for example. ainsley: obamacare. >> yeah, obamacare you really have to go to congress, though, to do more to actually repeal and more importantly replace. what are you going to replace it with? that's a big political issue for republicans.
5:04 am
it's one thing to repeal it. but that's going to be a big challenge. and i think the president-elect has made that clear to say, look, i want to insure everybody who is insured right now. that's something that president obama sort of set the table for donald trump on. steve: of course. >> when you govern by executive fee at, it comes boomeranging on you now. brian: and his legislative report card is terrible. there's less done in eight years than jimmy carter got down, george bush got done because he did nothing in congress. >> and that is a reminder to donald trump to hit the ground running. he's probably going to do that, but he has republican majority in the house and senate. don't waste them. brian: sure. steve: donald trump won as a republican because he's a developer in new york city. for decades, he's given money to democrats. >> yeah. steve: one of the democrats he has given to is senate majority leader chuck schumer who even though probably through the years they have been friends. out in public, they've got to
5:05 am
beat each other up and here's chuck schumer talking about donald trump's picks all bad. listen. >> this is a swamp cabinet full of bankers and billionaires. many of them have hard right views. some of them directly critic promises the president-elect complained on. now, it's no surprise republicans are trying to rush through these hearings. they don't want people to know the true views of their nominees. >> just trying to demonize the cabinet. ainsley: mitch mcconnell says that the democrats are in a bad mood. >> all you need to know about that sound bite is, look, do democrats have the right to hold hearings, ask questions, all of that? absolutely. but all you need to know is on day one of the obama administration, barack obama got seven of his cabinet picks not just nominated and all of that but confirmed, and they took office. and now they're going to fall short of that. they're not going to get seven. and, you know, that hamstrings the new president. so get moving on these new
5:06 am
things. i think some of the nom news the trump people to be fair were slow on the paperwork and the ethical questions. there are a bunch of them who are ready to go. >> you don't want to gap and the other thing is how much power does chuck schumer actually have? ainsley: do you think they're all going to get confirmed and if so when is all of this going to be over with? >> i think this is going to drag on for a couple of weeks. look, by the way, toby skeet friend of mine. and he's coming to this big concert. and he started texting me about how angry he is not just the lawmakers boycotting but there are a lot of entertainers that we don't know about who originally said they were going to go to the lincoln memorial and backed out and here's what he said. i'm ashamed of all the famous people said they told me they
5:07 am
were going and look down between their shoes and realized they suddenly didn't have a pair. shame, shame, shame on you. my whole career i supported every commander of this country in these situations. the weak folded under pressure. nothing changes in my world. i'm just going to grow stronger. and i said, look, i'm going to say this on fox and friends. and he said go for it. steve: a phony excuse that had a concert date after he was asked. >> tony orlando was on with o'reilly last night saying if hillary clinton won, i would be singing a song. ainsley: you've got to do better in life. >> and you should know how to sing, ainsley. steve: well, ed, the president of the united states as of tomorrow of noon has been tweeting already this morning. >> here we go. >> and clearly he was watching fox and friends about an hour ago. he just tweeted out quote it
5:08 am
wasn't donald trump that divided this country. this country has been divided for a long time by reverend franklin graham. and then he writes getting ready to leave for wdc. the journey begins and making a journey for the american people. i have no doubt that we will together make america great again. and, ed, while the democrats are doing their best to rain on donald trump's parade as of noon tomorrow, there are so many people coming to washington d.c. of the future of this country. >> they are. and i think he's absolutely right. the country was already divided. he's right. however, there's a challenge for him now. he's got to rise above it. he's got to be better than the critics. he has a golden opportunity here to try to bring people together. look, some people aren't going to come along no matter what you do. but challenge these democrats in the inaugural address. brian: don't give them the excuse to not show. >> look, the obama, clinton

folks said it in the last election. they go low, we go high. but the democrats aren't going high. so what you know? donald trump has a golden opportunity to go high. brian: but i think the obama family has gone high. >> the family absolutely has. brian: and the transition has been -- >> and that may be why president obama decided not to weigh in more on the boycotts because in private he probably disagrees with trump on a whole bunch of stuff. but you're right. he wants it to be a smooth transition. steve: had the president said i don't think -- i think it's political what they're doing or i wouldn't have done it. brian: that would have helped. steve: he probably would have been honest. but he wants to continue to be political. >> and he will be very soon. >> tomorrow promise me a pocket watch. steve: what's a pocket watch? brian: oh, you mean like in a

5:11 am
inauguration and we know why. quote my doctor says if i sit outside in january, it will likely put me six feet under. same with barbara. i guess we're in texas. mr. trump thanked them on twitter. and a new cabinet of confirmation hearings in the hot seat today, former texas governor rick perry and former goldman sachs banker steve nominated for treasury secretary. and making a huge announcement of unveiling a brand-new wax figure of president-elect donald trump. it's actually part of a series of statue uss 20 months to complete. the hardest part recreating the president-elect's iconic hair. it's made out ofiac hair actually and took five weeks to perfect with artists inserting one strand at a time. how about that one? >> what an honor to be memorialized in yak area.
5:12 am
>> bad news for the yak. steve: meanwhile you met him back in august who said he had no choice but to vote for donald trump. >> if you want someone who has run a business, ask the billionaire donald trump. not someone who see has done it before. steve: and he's back. his message to america? get ready to win again. ainsley: and pop quiz. what's wrong with this picture? everything. these celebrities no longer trashing the president-elect. they're trashing the american flag. hello, i'm an idaho potato farmer and i finally found our big idaho potato truck. it's been touring the country telling folks about our heart healthy idaho potatoes, america's favorite potatoes, and donating to local charities along the way. but now it's finally back home where it belongs. aw man.

hey, wait up. where you goin'? here we go again.
5:14 am
5:15 am
5:16 am
ainsley: well, we are just one day away from president-elect trump's inauguration and a growing number of small business owners are expressing optimism about the incoming administration like allen jones. do you remember him? we introduced you to him on fox and friends back in august. >> i'm a fat guy. if you ask me what restaurant to go to, you ought to listen to me. well, if you ask somebody how to create a business, ask a businessman
5:17 am
that's worth $10 billion. not someone that has never done it before. >> well, samantha chairperson of clothing, and he joins us now of why he thinks small businesses will still benefit from president-elect trump policies, which are coming down the pike. welcome back. >> thank you. glad to be back. brian: that was quite a sound bite. if you want to know where to eat, ask a fat guy. >> of all the things they could have used, that was probably the most embarrassing. brian: but the point is what? >> the point is. a business guy is what can make things happen. we've never had that before. this is the first guy who came out of the blue, never been a politician and is the president of the united states. it's what our forefathers envisioned is people like that running the country. ainsley: what do you want donald trump to do to help your business? >> well, one of the problems we have in the clothing business, you know, and hard work is the on oldest tailor made clothing in america is we have this made in america tax where we have to pay fabric
5:18 am
tax when it comes into the country that we're using. steve: an import tax from italy or whatever. >> a tariff. well, canada, for example, he was right except the clothing business it went to canada because they will buy the same material. we have to pay a 25% tax on it. they pay it without the tax and ship it in here free. so it's really unfair for the american manufacturers. brian: have you felt a difference since donald trump has won? have you sunniest more people spend? >> i have sunniest every person i know is optimistic and hopeful for the first time in eight years. you know, if we go back to this time in 2009 and january 2009, we were all extremely nervous. i've got many businesses with about 3,000 employees total. and so if i get nervous, we start cutting back.
5:19 am
>> sure and of course, allen, the reason leah did the story for you is this company was up for sale, you didn't want the what? 300 employees to lose their jobs out in cleveland, tennessee. so you bought the company, and it has been a struggle, but you saved those peoples jobs. >> well, i did. it was more than saving the jobs, it was saving an icon from tennessee where i'm from. it has been there since july 28th, 1880 and, you know, i thought i could maybe turn it around. but it's still a struggle. it's hard. brian: if people watching right now want to order, where do they go? >> go to our website. if you get one, this is our finest blazer right here. steve: it's sharp looking. >> this one the garden gun award great style in the south. and it's pretty much designed by me. brian: take that, brooks brothers. >> well, they're already mad at me. [laughter]
5:20 am
steve: all right. allen. great job. stay right there for a second. i'm going to take you did downstairs and get you a breakfast. >> they lured me for food. >> he's been with the president-elect's side since he came down the elevator. cory lewandowski the very first campaign manager joins us next. ainsley: that's right but first the voice of what the voters want, what you want to see in the first 100 days. we're going to see coming up net

5:25 am
since its founding of modern political party. so what are maryland voters thinking the day before donald trump is sworn in president right back there? >> well, we're going to ask steve. he is talking to them live from the tasty diner in maryland. >> we've been talking politics and eating lots. this is the people's election, the people's inauguration. so what better to come down and talk to great folks. good morning. how are you doing? what's your name? >> hanna. >> and what do you do? >> i stay at home wit with my son. >> i hope to hear patriotism, what it is to be an american now, i don't think they're getting that through education and bringing patriotism back. >> bringing patriotism back. if there's one thing you would like to see him accomplish in the first 100 days, what would it be? >> oh, my gosh. i just want to see him shake things up. i want to see him get congress back into it, shake things up, get rid of what doesn't need
5:26 am
to be there, and start things rolling. >> a lot of people want to shake it up. sir, how are you doing? >> good. >> what's your name? >> steve. >> you voted for trump as well. what's your background. >> i build homes. >> you're in connecticut, but you're down here for the inauguration. very cool. what are you hoping to see from the president? >> i'm hoping to see a businessman's approach solving problems in government as opposed to career politicians who don't ever seem had to get. >> speaking of career politicians, there are almost 70 democratic congressman who are deciding not to attend. what do you think of that? >> i think it's disgraceful. they're here to represent all of us. i'm sure there are people in their district who voted for trump and at least respect the institution if not the man. and learn how to work together. >> good message. maybe work together in washington d.c. speaking of working together, we have a great couple here we've been spending time with this morning from texas in here for the inauguration. good morning.
5:27 am
>> good morning. >> what are you hoping -- first of all, what's your name? >> i'm sherry. >> and your husband. >> david. >> and you guys came all the way for the inauguration with tickets from your congressman. what are you hoping to hear from mr. trump? >> i'm hoping for positivivity earlier and more let's get rid of common core. >> common core. >> certainly a contentious issue as was spoken to earlier. patriotism, civics, things we're losing in our schools. what are you hoping to hear from the president? >> i would like to see complete rebuild and replacement of obamacare. it has been proven already that it's a complete failure, and it's hitting the family hard in this country, and it needs to go. >> you said to me that this is a bucket list item for you guys. you have wanted to see an inauguration at some point. so how does it feel that you'll be on the ground tomorrow to see the 45th president nothing rated? >> well, i think it's an overall astounding experience. i wouldn't want to share it with in our. we're also looking to do a little bit of sight-seeing. >> first time to washington;
5:28 am
right? >> first time to dc. that's correct. >> and what's your last name? >> miller. >> the millers go to washington is is what we right now. thank you, both, for joining us here this morning. again, the people want to see action. attending the inauguration and supporting the president and give him a chance. they'll be excited to see what he has to say tomorrow. back to you. >> pete, you'll be excited. you know what the special is at lunch? it's meatloaf for 8.95. could you get three orders please? >> done. that's easy. ainsley: something hardy and warm. brian: that would be a great cereal. ainsley: don't ever make that as a cereal. steve: meatloaf cereal? i wouldn't be surprised if kellogg isn't jumping on it right now. >> i would be. ainsley: a teenage sensation preparing for his biggest moment yet. ♪ ♪
5:29 am
ainsley: jackie is set to sing the national anthem at tomorrow's inauguration. but first, she's here with us. live. brian: great. all right. the president-elect is ready to drain the swamp in washington but where should he start? the first campaign manager who worked with him. cory lewandowski. >> how exciting is this? wow. only at&t offers you all your live channels and dvr on your devices, data-free. it's entertainment. your way.
5:30 am
5:31 am
it's not just a car... it's your daily retreat. go ahead, spoil yourself. the es and es hybrid.
5:32 am
this is the pursuit of perfection. >>: but did you realize you were taking pictures of something special? >> the third event i was sweating, i was nervous. kept sagging. he said get that camera up. >> it's your shot of the morning. ainsley: volunteer trump photographer ray reynolds.
5:33 am
he has snapped more than 50,000 pictures of the president-elect. steve: sorry. we were being distracted. we talked to him early about his work, and he captured here some of what goes behind the scenes at fox and friends. >> there we are right there with amarosa. >> earlier concentrates. >> she is. >> and look at me. i do not know who that man is behind. steve: that's brian, and he's changing your battery. and then that's andrew murray. he's the fella who you see books most of the guests on fox and friends. in fact, one of the guests he booked today is cory lewandowski. who is joining us live today. cory, a great day for you i'm sure. you were donald trump's first campaign manager. take us back about two years ago. you got hired in january of 2015 by donald trump who had already interviewed five or
5:34 am
six other guys. when you got the job. >> it was so humbling. i got the opportunity to go to new york and meet with mr. trump. i wasn't sure why he was going there at the time. and then he told me, hey, i'm running for president of the united states. and i remember it very, very vividly. steve: what did you think? >> and he said what's your odds of winning? and i said 5%. and he negotiated and he said 10. and we said 7.537. ainsley: what's the last been for you? it's been ups and downs. >> it's been great. i've been a small part in history. we started this, no one gave trump a chance. no one said he was really going to run. and one by one by one the american people said we want fundamental and wholesale change. and i've had the privilege of seeing that from the front row. what the american people want. and i think what you're going to see tomorrow is the american people are really excited to have a different type of washington. brian: you said something i found stunning.
5:35 am
he actually got into a race where he thought he had about a 10% chance of running guilty? my sense is that he thought he was going to win the whole time. he didn't? >> well, you know what happened. you have some of the greatest candidates that the republican party has put together in this race. scott walker, jeb bush, business executives and senators. the amazing part of mr. trump, he never ran for anything. never had any political experience and that was the big hurdle we had to overcome. people and polls indicated they never thought he was going to run. once he was running, he never looked back. >> cory, let's ask you besides. there are probably 60 empty seats, 70 empty seats close to where he's sworn in tomorrow because a whole bunch of democratic congressman have decided that they're not going to show up. but for the millions of people who voted for donald trump who are watching right now, what does tomorrow mean to them? >> it means the fulfillment of a promise. what you get for donald trump, which politicians have forgotten about is the truth.
5:36 am
and even if you don't like what he says, he's going to tell you the truth. he's going to tell you that we're going to put america first. and if you're in america, and you want to be put first for a change, it means jobs for our country, renegotiating bad trade deals. he's going to do exactly what he talked about on the campaign trail and the reason is he's not accountable to the washington special interest. he's accountable to the american people these special interests haven't had the ability. >> and that's why people love him because he can't be bought. >> he put $100 million of his own money into the campaign. so he can't be bought. it gives him the freedom to come to washington, to claim conservative say i want to do what's right for the american people. brian: now, what you're going to be doing. you could eventually be chief of staff or something like that. but right now, you're not going to be doing that; right? >> that's right. so i want to sit on the outside and set up a firm that's going to do one of two things. recruit candidates who are going to be in the senate as republicans who are going to be in the blue states like ohio or traditional states that republicans don't win
5:37 am
in. very important so two years from now, the senate majority can lead and move the agenda. and the second is whatever the agenda is, the tax cuts or the wholesale fundamental reform with repeal and replace, i want to hold officials accountable in congress. making sure the constituents understand back at home. trump does this better than anybody. if you're not going to support me, i'm going to hold you accountable. that's what we want to do on the outside. ainsley: what about this on boycott? what's your message to all the congressmen doing this? >> here's what i say. i think the american people are so tired of partisan government and gridlock. if you ask for 100 days. 100 days of working together across the aisle. if you look at the people that donald trump has met with, whether it's kanye west or al gore or jim brown the football player. they all come down the same thing. >> steve harvey. >> genuine. he wants to bring people together.
5:38 am
he wants to do what's right for the american people. one day i think is what he's asking for. i think it's a shame that they want to make this about hyper partisan politics. look, i didn't vote for barack obama eight years ago, but i wanted him to be successful because when the president's successful, our country's successful. give donald trump that same chance because he's a uniter. not a divider. brian: and last have you noticed a change with him when you sat with barack obama? when he knows he's going into the white house. he never accomplished anything like this. have you noticed him change from candidate nominee to president? >> you know he has. he's been humbled. and i had the privilege to meet with him after he met with barack obama and went to the white house. and he understands the magnitude of the job that he's about to take and the decisions that he make will impact the nation and potentially the world. and he understands the gravity of what those decisions are. and that's why when you look
5:39 am
at the people he's surrounding himself with. he's bringing, in my opinion, the very best. general mattis, general kelly. the people who understand who we need to accomplish and are willing to put their personal ambition or careers aside to come here and serve the american people. and it's an amazing opportunity. >> but what you know? if he has changed a bit, that's one thing. but you famously said let donald trump be donald trump. at his soul, he's still donald trump. >> trump's always trump; right? trump is trump. and that's what you -- you never want to change that. and i mean that in a positive sense. he is not going to change. i hope he continues to tweet. that's what keeps him in touch with the american people. allows him to by pass the mainstream media. ainsley: cory, i know that your world has changed because of donald trump. >> part of history. steve: congratulations. >> thank you. thank you so much. brian: thanks so much. ainsley: let's go to heather who has headlines for us. >> good morning to all of you. some shocking surveillance video, the danger that our police officers face every single day.
5:40 am
a man caught on camera tackling a police officer inside an airport terminal in atlanta. a woman with a stroller running for her life as the attacker pounds the officer in the face. two strangers suddenly jump in to help when they see the attack going for the officer's gun. one of those heroes saying the officer lucky to be alive. >> he was very nonresponsive. i mean, he was nearly on the verge of blacking out. and if the gentleman was going for the officer's gun, he would have been out. >> it's a tough time now. >> not clear what sparked that suspect. and disrespect in new york city when dozens booed by vice president elect mike pence. do you remember this? well, now that musical creator lynn manual is showing support for oscar lopez, a convicted terrorist who tried to overthrow the u.s. government.
5:41 am
six people died as a result of his attack. this took place back in the '70s and '80s. but moments after president obama commuted his sentence. he tweeted quote sobbing in gratitude. thank you, potus. wow. and critics for marching in the inaugural grade. more than 100,000 people signing an online petition against their participation claiming mr. trump makes statements that are quote directly harmful to women and girls. the girls scout say participation is volunteer and encourage girls to make their own choices. they've been participating in the inauguration for more than 100 years. now the flag. these five so-called stars letting the nation civil touch the ground on the magazine that's of course a violator of code. vowed to lead the united states if mr. trump was elected.
5:42 am
they are still here. steve: i know just about everyone democrats and republicans agree on this. they want the bush family to be okay. and we know that barbara bush and president bush are in the opt right now. i just got this statement from jim mcgrath who is their main point guy and says the bushes thank everyone for their prayers and good wishes. even though their houston texans didn't quite get there, they're looking forward to the super bowl in their hometown, and they're planning to be there. >> so not only do they think they're getting out of the hospital, they plan on being in neutral two weeks which, by the way, that's where we'll be. >> that's right. >> for the patriots. >> stop it. nonpartisan. ainsley: we wish them all the best. you guys are in our thoughts and prayers. i think i'm speaking for most people around the country. steve: we're all praying for them. ainsley: yes, we are. well, she's a teenage sensation preparing for her biggest moment yet. ♪ ♪
