3:04 am
bucket list. one of the things they promised president trump will bring the budget into the zone of reality and yesterday with his skinny budget, a blueprint of $1.1 trillion, he cuts a bunch of programs that simply don't work and putting more money in things that are important to the country. ainsley: this is your money. you get up every morning. you try to get out of the door, get your kids on the bus and you want your hard-earned dollars to be spent wisely. we have a major deficit and we have to cut somewhere and unfortunately some of these agencies are going to have to feel the pinch. brian: this is a wish list, this is a framework, a skinny list. the winners are the defense department, they are up 10%. ainsley: that's one of the winners, defense, homeland security? brian: 1.5 billion to build the wall including 5.9% for the

veterans administration rebuild, i never thought money was the issue with the vets, it was an organization but when it comes to school choice, betsy devos is going to get a budget to do it. steve: i tell you what, i think 2010, 2014 the obama administration knocked $100 billion off the defense budget, so this 10% raise, you can see how we are still in the hole, that could be why john mccain says it needs to be more. meanwhile some of the losers agency wise health and human services, faa, research and grants, epa which the administration feels is out of control that's costing jobs and what not and the list goes on and on including pbs and npr. ainsley: which actors are upset about it. steve: back in the day if you lived out in the rural area which i used to and a lot of people relied on public radio

3:07 am
obamacare repeal and replace and you get an idea what this is going to be. once again, trump is up against establishment types who want big government who want the agencies who want the power that accompanies being able to dole out this money. steve: a lot of republicans don't like the framework of the budget. you have senator who says, i have to clear up the great lakes. you have others say we can't touch this, we can't touch that and a lot of people are upset, the state department is getting a 31% cut. it's too fat. we have to be able to cut this back. guess who else is not upset for the cutback, governor nikki haley, listen, we have to cut back on the un. they are taking advantage. ainsley: i trust the president. i'm running the state department, we are getting cuts too, i trust the president and we are going to make it work and it's a challenge that i'm up
3:08 am
for. steve: paul ryan and mitch mcconnell, they are both lukewarm on it. you would think if there's a lot of cut to be done in agencies that historically republicans have not been crazy about, they jump at the opportunity to cut them but nonetheless marco rubio said it's not going to be the budget and john mccain says it's not going to be passed. some republicans lukewarm but i tell you what, the coastal left is up in arms. ainsley: yeah, that's the first phase at least. talked about three phases of obamacare, this is the beginning of the budget, discussion. we talked about jamie lee curtis and some being upset. this is what she tweeted. after all the wars are fought what remains are people, nature and culture. trump can try but he cannot cut us out of the picture. brian: josh says this picture represents why a healthy budget is so important to the film-making process. is that james gordon?

3:10 am
he was going to do this, i'm going to write it down, that's the skinny budget. what do you think about it? e-mail us at foxandfriends.com. brian: cliff-hanger of a show when it turns out the three pages of donald trump's tax returns somehow got in the mailbox of a professor whose out -- spent 20 years to after donald trump. it turns out that she and her employer could be in trouble if the white house decides to take legal action. ainsley: they could have a case here depends if they -- you're not allowed to print or release someone's tax information without getting their permission. is it illegal for her to do this? she's saying no. steve: trump's personal attorneys believe msnbc violated
3:11 am
personal information and stolen. a lot of people that first amendment is on the side of the journalists, but the pentagon papers was a big study about what was going nonvietnam. it was not somebody's personal document. if they go forward and trump certainly seems to be angry about it, maybe they'll look at it that way, nonetheless, you know, you would think that the journalists would be shielded but then again where did this thing come from. was it leaked from somebody inside. the suggestion is if rachel maddow herself stole it or if the investigative reporter stole it they would be liable. brian: releasing his tax returns early, i wonder if he hurt his case by doing that.
3:12 am
steve: he didn't release this one, though. they talked about how deprate an outfit is to put on stolen documents. brian: julian turner has been enlisted. >> good morning. not much but i will give it a whirl. horrifying scene designed catastrophic after a house explodes in the middle of the night. scattered to a million pieces, firefighters comb through the debris. it's unclear at this time what caused the blast. another alert, this one out of raleigh, north carolina. giant flames right there pouring out of windows, people forced from their homes as flames spread to nearby buildings as well.

3:19 am
i was like what? you know. and then after seeing my doctor and doing all that stuff. i went back home, then i started making calls trying to find out what the heck is going on. why there is no picture of the commanders and chief on the wall. steve: this week, i believe, you had an appointment, you went in. still no picture. you asked somebody what was up. what did they say? >> kind of on the same line. i walked in there and looked over and anticipating that now the picture should be up. it's been a few weeks later. like when i called the department of veterans affairs they told me well, you just have to give us some time. it takes a while for them to get there. steve: right. >> i went up to the guy and asked him i said what's going on? i said, where's the picture of the president? and, you know, the guy just told me, he said, you know, that they are planning on impeaching him so they didn't want to spend any money on the photo. steve: whoa, whoa, whoa, what? this is somebody who works at the v.a. said they're planning on impeaching the president so we're not going to, you know, blow up a picture and put it on the wall?
3:20 am
that's what the va guy told you? >> i said that's your answer? he said yep, and turned around and walked away. steve: that is just crazy. we had ed henry's reportage where he said some people down in west palm beach said he's not my president. we're not going to put him up according to brian mast, the congressman down there. joseph, what does this say to you about the reluctance of the v.a. to put up the picture? >> you know, i mean, i have got to say that the people in the va. the doctors and the nurses and all that. steve: they are great. >> they are the most wonderful people i have ever met. steve: people in charge of putting up the picture, what about that? >> i figured this has got to be something that is political, do you know what i mean? when i called and started talking to them and stuff, they are telling me it just takes time. i said you knew who the president was going to be november 8th. there is no reason why you shouldn't have had a picture prepared. steve: right. >> when one comes down, the other goes up. that's how it was when i was in the service.
3:21 am
that's how it was done. steve: joseph, the good news is the v.a. has said going forward they will put up unofficial photos until the official photo comes out. good news to you and everybody else. >> yeah. steve: joseph johnson, thank you very much for your service and joining us. >> thank you very much. steve: thank you. more in a minute. for drivers with accident forgiveness, liberty mutual won't raise your rates due to your first accident. liberty mutual insurance. due to your first accident. this is the story of green mountain coffee and fair trade, told in the time it takes to brew your cup. let's take a trip to la plata, colombia. this is boris calvo. that's pepe. boris doesn't just grow good coffee, boris grows mind-blowing coffee. and because we pay him a fair price, he improves his farm to grow even better coffee and invest in his community,

3:26 am
demanding rights they already have? here to weigh in on this is alli stucky a blogger a blog. er. thanks for joining us. >> good morning. thanks for having me. ainsley: why are college students flipping out like we see in those video pieces. >> college students are very emboldened by this idea of moral vigilantism feel like they are on the right side of history. defeating fascism. standing up against this evil dictator. they will don't see their rights and protesting as division or chaos or vitriol or even a as violent. they see it as the right thing. that's honestly what makes it frightening and difficult to reason with them logically. ainsley: why do thea they feel, alli, entitled? where does this come from? who is responsible? >> i think they feel entitled mostly because the past eight years they have been able to get the things they want.

candidate bernie sanders say you deserve free things like free college. someone coming in, someone they didn't vote for, someone who supposedly stands for bigotry and racism all the things millennials say they are against. they feel entitled to speak up for this. of course we see the hypocrisy in this. they are standing up for tolerance and love trumps hate and standing up for freedom but also using intolerance to shut down the freedom of other people's speech. that's the scary do yo duplicitf this. ainsley: what's your message when they do call president trump and say he is racist and say he doesn't understand them? what do you say to them? >> i say where are your facts? what are the actual policies that he is planning to implement that you actually think are racist or unconstitutional? so much of what donald trump has done is well within his realm of discretion. his realm of authority. as stated constitution.
3:28 am
he come to me with actual facts of why donald trump. just to requote donald trump is enacting some muslim ban because he doesn't like muslim people, that's not good enough to me. there is not enough substance behind that. ainsley: real quickly. shouldn't we expect this, alli? most college students are liberal. they just gotten out of their parents house. haven't made that first paycheck. older and start paying taxes. they realize they are paying a lot to the government. shouldn't we expect a lot at this age? >> yeah. probably a little bit. i think it's worse than it was eight years ago. even a few years ago. i was in college in 2012. there was an election then. i remember being disappointed that barack obama won. i don't remember writing. i don't remember protesting. i don't remember calling people who voted for barack obama a bigot or, you know, any other name like that. but i do think that there is
3:29 am
also a shift in indoctrination of college professors. rather than teaching students critical thinking skills and saying okay, here is what the constitution says, here is what the travel badge actually says. you can go and read it online. what do you think? they are saying this is how have you to think. if you don't think this way, you are going to be punished one way or another. we see a lot of college-aged millennials that conservatism once you talk about the paycheck is deferred longer and longer. interesting to see what college-aged millennials will actually end up being with in a few years. ainsley: thank you for joining us. the conservative millennial on stain gram. a special tribute to all the snowflakes out there. ♪ i've got friends in safe spaces ♪ if you don't go with us ♪ then you must be racistith eai

>> see what we're doing with our military, bigger, better, stronger than ever before. you see what's happening. [cheers] >> you are already seeing the results. our budget calls for one of the single largest increases in defense spending history in this country. brian: that was president trump, proudly touting his plan to nashville to boost military spending and his plan to rebuild the military also getting praise from a person

on hillary clinton's vp short list. admiral james who actually went to trump tower when he was president-elect former supreme allied commander for nato and co-author of this new book "the leader's book shelf." the admiral joins us now. admiral, that must have been music to your ears in nashville, pun intended. is it enough for you? >> i think we are going to have that as a minimum, a floor, if you will. we have got to spend it in the right way, brian. we have got to put that money against first and foremost readiness, repairing our ships. restoring the capability that has been somewhat degraded over the last decade in these wars. secondly we need to do the 21st century purchasing of unmanned vehicles, cyber security, something we all understand and special forces. brian: $54 billion. 53% more than president obama was going to spend. eble admiral, you saw it from

the outside as supreme allied commander from the inside as you grew up through the military. don't we need official is i expert? don't we need to pay attention to what that commission put out that the pentagon is wasting billions of dollars? >> you know what? you are talking about, brian is, a report put out by the defense business board that came up with tens of billions of dollars of real savings that could be made, if you will, in the back office. this hit right at the end of the last administration never got traction. it's something i would recommend to my good friend secretary jim mattis take a look at. brian: all right. let's talk about what's happening today. angela merkel chancellor of germany meeting with president trump at which time she has pledged to go up on defense spending from 1.3 to 2% of the defense budget. is this the first president that's truly gotten the attention of our nato allies when it comes to spending like we're spending? >> i think it's fair to say that every previous president
3:47 am

we're going to need to continue to keep the sanctions on russia in response to their behavior in ukraine. the annexation of crimea. i think the two of them, merkel and trump can do that and ultimately push toward an agreement that will sort out the southeast portion of the country. the second thing the leaders can do is focus on cyber security and pressure russia to step back from its continuing cyber attacks into the united states. we just saw the most recent against yahoo. goes back to our election. those are the he things i would like to see tackle together. brian: name of the book the admiral's book shelf: thank you so much for joining us, admiral. >> thanks so much, brian. brian: coming up straight ahead, on the offense to defend the president's budget. >> if you are only focusing on half of the equation, right you? are focusing on recipients of the money.

4:26 am
so he actually stood on 10-inch stilts and he had a huge body suit on with marker dots all over his body and also did facial capture so the performance actually comes through the digital character very similar to what andy circus did as golam in the lord of the rings. he actually dropped his voice down to the beast level. they do add some bass. listen to sound bite closely as his name and face changes. watch. this what would a guy who is very vain suddenly cursed with this look and given hideous teeth how would his mouth you try to try hang the fangs and your mouth ends up going quite down on top of which is he a very, very grumpy character. your mouth gets longer. and larynx stretched and voice comes out very much deeper and speaking from the bottom of his body. and he is also a big guy. there is a lot of resonance there.

over, brian because this guy was sitting next to you. steve: leprechaun. brian: is it good luck or bad luck for them? what is the thing with that? steve: i know we had a leprechaun in the studio a few years ago. that did not turn out well. maybe it could be bad luck. brian: we did not know we had to give him a breathalyzer before he got here. ainsley: go out there and look for a four leaf clover. we will have headlines. brian: fiery healthcare debate coming your way. steve: julian? julian: make sure it's fiery. breaking overnight a cop killer may be off the streets thanks to bombshell evidence. accused of ambushing two police officers in detroit wednesday night. authorities now say his d.n.a. at the crime scene is linked to the murder of wayne state university officer sergeant collin rhodes. he was killed execution-style last november. and if you are illegal and looking for a place to stay in the united states, don't even think about setting foot in one colorado county. the sheriff there says his town followed the rules.

the united states giving the burden of our 20 trillion-dollar debt. maybe that's a fair point. and one of the nation's top universities is now backtracking after being accused of firing a law enforcement dispatcher over her political views. kim deerman says the university of wisconsin has canned her for supporting president trump's immigration halt. >> i had a casual conversation with the young lady that i was training. apparently she was offended by it, by me indicating that i thought terrorists or immigrants should be sent back to their middle eastern country. julian: following the backlash she has been offered job back but says she is worried about returning. those are your headlines for right now. brian: thank you, julian, appreciate it president trump and g.o.p. leadership are confident in their plan to repeal and replace obamacare on many levels. what are patients saying after all isn't that what counts? what do they want from the new
4:38 am
plan that obamacare is not offering? here to discuss this is fox news medical a team dr. marc siegel and obamacare architect and fox news contributor dr. ezekiel emanuel. thank you for being here. dr. emanuel i know you like your plan. after all, you helped give birth to it. if you could add something to it, to make it better, what would it be for the patient? >> well, i think there are two things we really need to do. one, it's quite clear that the american public is upset about deductibles and how much they need to pay out of pocket before the insurance kicks in. we definitely need to bring that down. interestingly, when the congressional budget office evaluated the most recent republican plan, they said deductibles would go up. that is going in the wrong direction. so i think we need to make healthcare more affordable and the flip side of that is we need to pay doctors and hospitals differently so that they actually are interested in keeping people healthy and don't just get paid when they treat the sick.
4:39 am
i think that's a lot of what the public really wants. some of the things they really likeside no deductibles, no co-pays for prevention. i think that's really important. no deductibles and co-pays for three primary care visits. i think that's also important to keep. brian: dr. siegel, you know what's put out there now and what's got to be fixed. one thing that drives people crazy is huge deductibles they say i might not as well have insurance. >> for the deductibles to come down, i don't think we can continue to spread our resources across the entire population. let me say what i mean by that the mandates are not popular. we get rid of the individual mandate, then there is going to be more choice in the system. what are your choices? if we leave all preexisting conditions in place, then everyone is baying for everyone else. listen to this. 5% of americans use up 50% of outline hurricanhealthcare cost. 5% use up 50%. dr. emanuel wants all the essential benefits in. i think the government, we
4:40 am
have got to look at the role of government. the government should protect us against the plague. should protect us against hoping. the role of the government is not to make sure that we have no co-pay on a colonoscopy. i love cyclone scopes. i love mammograms. i order them on every win of my patients. if you have the government making sure that isn't provided, premiums are going to stay high and deductibles will stay high. we need ala cart menu. brian: that's one the phrases i never thought i would hear i love colonoscopies. i know what you are talking about. >> i love what they find. >> let's hope he is not ordering them on every one of his patients since people over 50 and under 75 should not be getting that. >> of course. >> we need to be careful we don't overuse and drive up healthcare costs without getting necessary benefits. let me just say one thing. by cutting and having a, quote, ala cart menu, all you end up doing is asking people to pay for their own healthcare and to pay out of pocket. and that's not possible.
4:41 am
the reason 5% of people are using 50% of costs is that they are sick. they have cancer. they have serious heart disease. and they can't pay for all the services they need out of their own pocket. that's why we have insurance. so spread the costs across everyone and across a lifetime. brian: having said everything we want idealistically the plan that ryan put forward, the best you know of it, they are going to make changes in the fourth committee and bring it to the house. can you give me two things you would like to see practically changed? first dr. siegel? two things that ryan has got to add? >> first of all, i wants to see high risk pools. i want to see more choice. because you know what? innovation cannot be covered by one size fits all insurance. i want to agree with dr. emanuel on one thing. i want to see the medicaid expansion preserved. i want to see it made more efficient by our medicaid czar. i want to see bridge-to-jobs put. in i want to see premium pay-ins on it. cut down on medicaid cost without getting ethics packages that will bring in some democrats. brian: dr. emanuel couple
4:42 am
things you want paul ryan to do before it comes to the house. >> they do have 100 billion-dollar stabilization fund in there i don't want that cut. basically that does provide some reinsurance to the insurance companies and additional subsidies for people who are sick and are having a hard time buying insurance. both of those things are really important to actually having a good and stable health insurance market. and i think they need to be preserved. the right wing, the freedom caucus does not like those things. they find them more quote, unquote, bail-outs. they are very, very essential. i think you have an agreement here that preserving the expansion of medicaid is really important. remember the ryan proposal, when scored, will mean that one in five americans will not have insurance. that is not a good place to be. that's the reason -- let me just finish. one in five people will not be insured. that means -- that's why the ama, american hospital association is against this bill. >> we have a catastrophic option. if we have a catastrophic
4:43 am
option. brian: all right. guys. thank you very much. dr. siegel and dr. emanuel thank you very much. >> thank you. >> thank you. brian: straight ahead, ivanka trump sitting down with latina business leader and she is here to talk about it plus, president trump definitely not loving this mcdonald's we did the. so does the ham bloomberg glory really just hack the hamburger account. carlie shimkus will be here without drinking the whiskey. bl.
