♪ ♪ >> there is breaking news now, repeal and replace will not get a vote in the house of representatives today. >> leadership aids say it was president trump who called on speaker paul ryan to pull the bill. >> we'll be living with the obamacare for the foreseeable future. >> unmasking undone and the documents that i read the other day. >> that unmasking cannot be explained except as an evident to undermine the new president. >> all of us are essential liver in the dark. >> this is a case put spotlight on the already contentious debate in the country. law was already broken by these young men who entered the country illegally. >> documented, undocumented. >> that's just the focus of the case because they are here illegally.
3:01 am
>> not focus is the fact that a 14-year-old girl claims she was raped. >> let obamacare explode. >> not a question of gee, i hope it does well. i would love it to do well. this was a very good bill. i think it will do even better the next time around. ♪ the changes ♪ abby: who picks our songs in the morning. it's a fitting song. clayton: it's a darn shame we don't have anything to talk about this morning. abby: nothing changing this morning. clayton: welcome in to "fox & friends" on this saturday morning. if you were out enjoying your friday night and didn't see the blood bath that happened yesterday afternoon. let us bring you up to speed. abby: we were waiting on this vote to take place thursday and got pushed to friday. right before it was suppose to take place it was pulled. then we heard there was to be a press conference with speaker paul ryan.
3:02 am
he came out at 4:00 p.m. and suggested the president suggested we should pull. this they weren't going to get the votes. they were 16 short. pete: ryan spoke and president trump spoke democrats spoke. this was president trump yesterday in the oval office after they pulled the bill. >> we were very close. it was a very, very tight margin. we had no democrat support. we had no votes from the democrats. they weren't going to give us a single vote. so obamacare is exploding with no democrat support. i think the losers are nancy pelosi and chuck schumer because now they own obamacare. they own it 100 percent own it. and this is not a republican healthcare. this is not anything but a democrat healthcare. and they have obamacare for a little while longer until it ceases to exist, which it will at some point in the near future. and just remember, this is not our bill.
3:03 am
this is their bill. clayton: i think that's a weak argument. point the finger the a democrats here? you are in charge. you are in charge. republicans run congress. they run both branches. this was their bill. as tucker pointed out yesterday no one knew what was in the bill. it was a garbage bill to begin with. no one knew what was in it. even in the last few minutes no one knew what was in it and you didn't have republican support for this bill. to pass the buck to the democrats. democrats weren't called. they were sitting back on their hands. pete: they were never going to answer the call. they want to impeach this guy if they can let alone be a part of the good faith part of process. hillary clinton, bill clinton said it was a disaster. hillary clinton said she would tweak it on the campaign trail. no proposal to fix the disaster obamacare. clayton: yeah, but -- pete: difficult to explain why they didn't peace it on the day to pass it. abby: i don't think anyone is disagreeing with you on that one.
3:04 am
a lot of people are hurt by obamacare and they have been wanting it to change now for seven years. they have been promised if republicans were in charge this would change. and here was a real missed opportunity because the republicans do have control as you are saying, clayton u it started in the house. they had this ability to put this bill together. had you republicans on both sides of the aisle, the conservative he is and more moderates that could not come together on this. i think if anything, if americans weren't that upset before this, they should be friederikeen angry right now. theyer the ones that lose in this whole thing. not democrats, not republicans. the american people lose on this more man anyone else. clayton: it's a great point. our viewers are smart enough to know if you are going to pointed the finger at anyone this morning democrats who weren't called and involved in this process at all? or the guy in charge speaker of the house paul ryan. a lot of republicans calling for him to be ousted. he said this yesterday, we deserve a pat on the back. >> we came really close today, but we came up shoirt. i'm really proud of the bill that we produced. it would make a dramatic
3:05 am
improvement in our healthcare system and provide relief by people hurting under obamacare. i want to thank some members who helped make this bill better. a lot of our members put a lot of hard work into this. i also want to thank the president. he has really been fantastic. still, we got to do better and we he will. i absolutely believe that. pete: that press conference drove me nuts. clayton: why? pete: i'm really proud of our failed bill. i'm really happy, ah, shucks. we almost got there am i looking at a leader? i'm not looking at a leader. stand up to that podium and say we missed the mark. we failed. we had historic opportunity and we didn't get it done. we failed out president. it's on him. it's on speaker paul ryan. abby: clayton, as you said, no one really understood what was in this bill to begin with. that falls right on speaker paul ryan. it was his bill. have you to communicate with your members and the american people. why should they vote for this and wanted this bill? i don't think anyone fully
3:06 am
understood what was in it. clayton: great point and asking the president to go out -- this is how the president was sold this, which is you are going to sit back, mr. president. we have got this. we have consensus. you will come in and close the art of the deal. go out to a couple different cities and sell it. then the president goes out to these cities. abby: impossible task. clayton: 60 to 54-year-olds the most hurt by this bill. didn't have any consensus. falls solely inside the chambers. pete: seven years and give me this crappy bill. misrepresent what's going on on capitol hill. call me at the white house help me save this bill. as a deal maker i roll up the sleeves and do the best confidential informant there is a point president trump said i don't really like this bill either. that's why he called the vote for friday. let's getter done if we are not going to i don't want to be saddled by this by speaker ryan. abby: the swamp is a lot swampier than i thought it even was.
3:07 am
i will have to put a lot more getting anything done. you can't rely on speaker paul ryan to pass anything. clayton: speaker gingrich made a great point on hannity. if this had been one of his hotels, get this resort done, people would be fired this morning if they had let this fall by the wayside like this. pete: exactly. american people are failed by this. ape tired of being one half of the swamp being incompetent and the other side ha ha you got it wrong. that's exactly what the democrats did yesterday from top to bottom. here is hillary clinton with a tweet that came right out after the bill was pulled. she said, she tweeted today was a victory for all americans. somehow a failing bill staying as law is victory for americans? it wasn't just her. clayton: no. a lot of other democrats yesterday who were happy about what unfolded and the republicans in a circular firing squad. watch. >> today is a great day for our country. it's a victory.
3:08 am
what happened on the floor is a victory for the american people. >> this is a good day for the american people. >> you sense a little bit of exuberance on our part, maybe a little bit it's on behalf of the american people. >> we breathe a sigh of relief. that's on behalf of the american public. >> i want to thank the very constituents across america to made today possible. it was their century. >> today was a good day for the good guy guys that is the best my friends. ainsley: that really makes me angry, clayton. i would tell them go travel around this country. go look into the eyes of small business owners and you ask them if they thought yesterday was a great day to be alive? i guarantee many of them would say this is a sad. pete pete all acknowledge it's a failed bill. failed bill imploding on itself and hurting americans deal with this incompetence going forward. clayton: some of the things still in place are the penalties for not getting the healthcare still $95 per
3:09 am
person. here is a look at some the people who may not think it's a great day for obamacare. watch. >> the disappointment liz felt when after two months of trying she was finally able to compare health insurance plans on the government website healthcare.gov. >> i can't afford it i cannot afford it. >> i do not have the medical policy, the health policy that i love and trust. and now i have to clooz between my doctors. >> washington state mom hailed as obamacare success story by the president in a speech just last month, well now she says she can't afford the insurance and blames the state healthcare exchanges. >> she has been told she does not qualify. and the private plan options are still too expensive. so, she continues to go without health insurance. abby: these are the exact stories i was talking about. we have heard from them for six, seven years now. you can imagine how up in arms they must be this morning. clayton: republicans were in
3:10 am
charge. we promise. you elect us, we will change this. pete: let's be clear, ran election cycle after election cycle to repeal and replace obamacare. president trump is saying i'm moving on. you had seven years. time is done. if it implodes on itself we will get that deal in the future. healthcare is broke in this country. i didn't impugn speaker ryan. he was careful about that. he knows he is going to need him in the future. behind the scenes i have no doubt. abby: american people are wondering what does this mean going forward? how did this happen? and what happens next? i think he would do really well to get in front of the american people and say i have fought for you from the beginning. i'm going to keep fighting for you. next up get tax reform and get a good healthcare bill done. i think it's important for him to speak out. clayton: he threw democrats under the bus. i think that was a weak argument. i have think to your point.
3:11 am
he knew that t. was speaker ryan he was wanting to throw under the bus and sources say inside the white house they were furious at speaker ryan. they didn't publicly say it our viewers are smart enough to know. pete: is he right that they now own healthcare failure in this country. abby: the republicans are in charge right now, right, pete? if anything to blame for not passing. this we can point the fingers all day long but at the end of the day -- clayton: friends ate foxnews.com. ff weekend on twitter. who is to blame for this failure yesterday? abby: we do have other headlines i want to bring you this morning starting with something that's been breaking right think moment. reports of active shooter at the belashi bebelazio hotel in . armed burglars attempted to rob the rolex store in the hotel. one person tweeting this picture appearing to show an armed man in a pig mask. police have not confirmed if
3:12 am
they were involved. luckily no one was hurt. acted the face of terror. authorities releasing this photo a 52-year-old london attacker mass sue erma sued. calling him violent with a desire to quote kill someone. he murdered four people including one american when he rammed his car through a crowd on westminster bridge before being shot dead. the virginia court refusing to join other federal courts halting the revised man. the department of justice saying this as the court directly explains the court's executive order falls well within its authority to safeguard the nation's security. the judge adding the president's past statements should not be used in those rulings. those are your headlines. clayton: what's next for the healthcare law and will the republicans try again? will speaker ryan remain speaker?
3:13 am
we're going to ask congressman louie government. hgohmert. he was a no vote. pete: welcoming them with voter registration forms? we will dig into this story. whoa, this thing is crazy. i just had to push one button to join. it's like i'm in the office with you, even though i'm here. it's almost like the virtual reality of business communications. no, it's reality. introducing intuitive, one touch video calling from vonage. call now and get amazon chime at no additional cost. dearthere's no other way to say this. it's over. i've found a permanent escape from monotony.

pulled 716 billion from their medicare and seniors are figuring out the solution is we will hurt our older folk as little more but don't worry. you guys have been dead on about what you have been been talking about. but, let me tell you, this bill they were bringing before us was based on a lifetime achievement i don't know where the lie came from. i don't know if someone in our leadership created the lie. that may be quite possible that somebody lied to them and they just accepted it. abby: what's the lie? inch listen though, the lie was. this we can't do what you guys want to do because the lateral men tarren won't allow us to do it. we can't check with the parliamentarian until we pass the bill in the house and send it to the senate. the parliamentarian never rules. that's a lie. be a this goes well above a lot of the people's lives. >> they told the president that, too. they told the president that, too. clayton: the irony here is that democrats and republicans
3:19 am
made fun of democrats for years for passing a bill without knowing what was in it and the republicans didn't know what was in theirs. >> yeah, everybody in the freedom caucus had read it we knew and just a little glimpse in our rooms when we would get together, we were not -- we were trying to get to yes. we were trying very hard. we -- in fact, the president said okay, we'll get there, we will fix these things that you have asked for. we will do that and then ryan and the other guys come back and say you can't do that the parliamentarian. mike lee checked and it was all fine. clayton: congressman, can speaker ryan continue on as your leader. >> we have to learn from this disastrous mistake that was based on something they told the president something repeatedly that was not drew. the parliamentarian said there is nothing problematic with this. you can do. this and we didn't find that
3:20 am
out until mike lee went and asked. they said we couldn't even ask. pete: a ton of finger pointing today. speaker ryan stood at the podium and said he was proud of the process and prowftd bill we were really close thank you so much. american people are sick of we almost got there they want things to get done. do you confidence that speaker ryan can lead the caucus and get solutions through the house? >> i need -- before i decide that i need to know where the lie came from. who generated this lie about we couldn't find out from the parliamentarian. let me tell you, in the rooms, some people have tried to portray this group as just a mean bunch of guys that didn't care. let me ask you, we had prayer over and over. nerve that room believes what ben franklin said. i have lived a long time. the longer i live more convincing fruits i see god governs in the men. there were tears. would were trying to help this country. this was a bad bill.

a. clayton: possible splog gun in that claim the trump tower was wiretapped. devin nunes has said he has seen the new detail. here now to discuss is former cia intelligence officer and senior fellow lieutenant colonel tony shaffer. what do we know this morning? >> we know, look, notably, two
3:25 am
weeks ago this morning, we were here having this conversation right after mr. trump's tweet it has been two weeks. clayton: we kne clayton: right. >> we know the claim was true. something happened. we have to understand when mr. trump tweeted wiretapping it wasn't cable being tapped in. data. he trump tower is yiewsm mystic. what we know is there is some level of collection not relating to the russia investigation or russia issue that has now come forward. i think what we are seeing now here frankly is a work of walking as the razor's edge. we have to be careful about giving up tools, techniques and neck now information was collected. if this collection was done legally, the unmasking of names and dissemination are probably felony level crimes
3:26 am
that break not only protocol but break the law. clayton: that's what bob woodward had said yesterday. americans caught incidentally in these surveillance schemes, their names have to be protected. they have to be masked. >> exactly. clayton: why would were they unmasked. this is what bob woodward said yesterday. i want to get your comments. >> the idea that there was intelligence failure here is really thin. it's, again, down the middle. it's not what trump said, but this could be criminal on the part of people who decided oh, let's name these people. under the rules that name is supposed to be blanked out. and so have you got a real serious problem, potentially, of people in the obama administration passing around this highly classified gossip. clayton: gossip out there, colonel.
3:27 am
what do you make of this? >> clearly they were after gossip because it's political. this has no intelligence value. let me be clear on this, i have run these sorts of operations before. i have had to go to the white house and brief on this sort of operation. and you instantly, and let me be clear on this for your audience. you instantly bend information relating to u.s. persons. it used to take us time, like minutes. now it can be done instantly. i mean the moment it hits so there is absolutely no technical reason. so what i have been saying is this incidental, it's incidental on purpose. they knew what they were going for. therefore, what mr. woodward was just say something absolutely correct. i believe they is much worse than watergate by order of magnitude by the fact that you had people both in the intelligence community who were political appointees and i would argue mr. trump's battle against the intelligence community wasn't against the community it's about the political appointees running the intelligence community clearly now the evidence is they abused their authority and used it for political purposes.
3:28 am
that's what we have to look at very carefully now. clayton: devin nunes appeared walk some of this back yesterday. he didn't believe there was any obama administration tapping of trump tower this sort of shift yesterday? >> look, i think mr. trump was using that yiews you them yiewsm mystically. you don't have to tap trump tower to get data coming out of it someone authorized the intelligence community to collect on trump's networks for purposes then unmasking individuals and disseminating information illegally. that's what the real issue is at this point. clayton: colonel tony shaffer always great to sigh. thanks, colonel. >> you bet. clayton: coming up on the show. shocking sexual assault by illegal immigrant teen. lawyer says it's president trump's fault. >> the reason for that is, i believe, that it's because of

you heard it there, amy. he said democrats will come to me eventually. when they do i will work with them. is this a way for him of saying the conservative side of the republican party they didn't come on board this time. they didn't give us the votes we needed. have a bill between democrats and republicans. something very different that president obama said i have a paper and pen and go straight down party lines. >> clearly had a freedom caucus did not get on board with paul ryan obamacare reform package. i think that president trump is saying that he is willing to reach across the aisle. i actually support that i think that a big piece of legislation like this should have bipartisan support. part of why obamacare has been such a brittle part of legislation partly because it wasn't well constructed because it was passed along completely partisan lines without a single republican vote. abby: chuck, yesterday, the democrats were praising the fact that this didn't pass. saying this is a victory for us. when you look at the big picture, that is sad for a lot

3:47 am
to them. >> what assurances can you give parents who are worried today that their child could be assaulted, as we saw in rocksville, allegedly, by a criminal illegal alien here? >> i'm not sure i can give assurances that a crime would never happen in our state. we are working very hard to get to the bottom of this one and find out how it was allowed to happen. as you know, there is also a bill here in the legislature which i threatened to veto which would make maryland a sanctuary state and prohibit our local and state law enforcement or interfere with their ability to cooperate with federal law enforcement, which i'm absolutely opposed to. first will be to get to the bottom of this particular case. second will be to stop this sanctuary bill from passing. three, we are going to try to make the montgomery county school system a little more accountable. >> now, in fairness, the governor is a lone duck there in maryland because it's a heavily democratic and

the oval office, i can't work with republicans maybe i can start working with democrats to get some things done. that's got to sting republicans. do you think the president actually means that and will democrats come on board for fax reform package? >> i think he's got a better chance of getting some democrats coming on board for a tax reform package because, here again, it effects everybody. and i also happen to believe that the president is right. some democrats may come on board and i believe that he may be able to get enough support on tax reform more so on repealing obamacare. and here's why. no democrats wanted to talk to the republicans or talk to the president about this republican plan. none. so, when people say democrats didn't get talked to, i'm sorry, they did. they didn't want to. maxine watters, who you have featured some of her tweets, she said she didn't want to be in the same room with the president. she said she didn't want to

♪ remember me ♪ pete: fall out boy. abby: in washington, d.c. where not a lot went down yesterday. pete: a lot not a lot went down in washington, d.c. yesterday. we got a lot of people talking about it. one of which we want to hear from this morning is the editor of conservative review olympic shell malkin. i want to play a clip and get your comment. right after they pulled the bill. the first person to speak was speaker paul ryan. everyone wondering what he would say about why the bill was pulled. this is what he had to say. >> we came really close today, but we came up short. i'm really proud of the bill that we produced. it would make a dramatic improvement in our healthcare system and provide relief by people hurting under obamacare. i want to thank so many members who helped make this bill better. a lot of our members put a lot of hard work into this. i also want to thank the
4:35 am
president. he has really been fantastic. still, we have got to do better and we will. i absolutely believe that. pete: an interesting tone for a man who had just failed. what's your take? >> yeah. don't break your arm there patting yourself on the back because that's not covered by obamacare or by rhino care. i'm one of those people who have been harmed by obamacare. i know that this foe peal. fake peal wouldn't have made my situation any better. this is the problem that so many grassroots limited government conservatives have had with paul ryan. it does fall squarely on his shoulders. and that's not a surprise. because if you are measured by your actual results as opposed to your effort. he wants an a for effort. that's what that press conference was about. and that's pathetic. conservatives measure things by results. not by rhetoric. and if the question that these conservatives in the beltway
4:36 am
are supposed to ask every morning is, what did i actually do to limit the size and scope of government in americans' lives, he gets a big fat f. clayton: members of the freedom caucus felt lied to. you heard louie gohmert. he said we were told we had to roll this out in three phases in order to get more of the difficult phases done in the second and third fades. we could have got continue done in the first phase but we were lied to. how does he continue on as speaker? >> louie gohmert is such a trooper. a real patriot. somebody who stands that if you keep doing the same thing over and over again, you're not going to get different results. and there has been efforts to try and get rid of these establishment beltway figures who have paid lip service to limited government and then stabbed conservatives and the americans in the back every single time. maybe a new revolt against that so-called -- the leadership. failed leadership will finally work this time. and that has to come from
4:37 am
inside the house. abby: yeah. well, you have former speaker newt gingrich who was on last night. he compared it to president trump owning a business u and he said if this were to happen to one of his apartment complexes or a restaurant or a hotel, he said people would be fired from this. this is not what would go down under his leadership. is he waking up this morning trying to figure out how to move forward because on one end you have a republican party who clearly can't see eye to eye on how to move forward on healthcare. then have you democrats, as you saw yesterday, who is gleeful about this, who are sort of praising the fact this bill didn't pass yesterday. here is hillary rodham clinton. she tweeted this saying today was a victory for all americans, basically saying that the status quo as we know it in this country is a victory for the american people. how does president trump move forward? because if anything yesterday should have been a wake-up call to him that is ultimately going to come from his leadership if he wants to get anything done. not speaker ryan, not anybody else. >> well, he is talking to the wrong people and he alived himself with the wrong people.
4:38 am
looking back, of course, one of his greatest regrets is going to be having endorsed paul ryan for re-election. and instead of listening to the grassroots conservatives who have had a real repeal plan in place and knew what they were doing and committed to the palestinian principles og this thing with something that would make every american in a better place, instead of hastening the death spiral that obamacare did. pete: democrats may be gleeful, but they were gleeful through their resistance. they were never going to work with president trump no matter. what it seems that those on the left find an excuse to blame him for just about anything. we have to get your take on another topic this morning. one of the attorneys in this rockville maryland, rape case was asked by our own martha maccallum about the case and what had happened, the illegal immigrant alleged to have committed the crime there the attorney brought up an interesting excuse. take a listen. >> as criminal defense attorneys, usually we don't
4:39 am
want to get on the news and talk about cases. especially when a case is just beginning when very little facts are known about anything, about either side, the defense or the prosecution. however, we think it's really important to come here and to talk to the public right now because the sensationalism and the outrage and the hysteria that's been taking place over the last week in this case is getting out of control. and the reason for that is, i believe, that it's because of the disgusting vitriol that's been spewed by donald trump ever since the beginning of his campaign. >> i have no idea. abby: even the look on martha maccallum's face at that moment. what does that have to do with president donald trump? >> absolutely nothing. so this guy's defense for his client is to stir up anti-trump hysteria and sensationalism as an antidote to the sensationalism that he is blaming this crime on.
4:40 am
look, i would have had sympathy for this criminal defense lawyer if he had simply paid some sort of tribute to constitutional principles that i believe in. every defendant deserves to have a fair trial with an impartial jury. and he might have had a point if he didn't throw in that anti-trump stink bomb at the end. but we also have to think about the context. i am a refugee from montgomery county, maryland, this is one of the bluest dots in the country. open borders, liberal, sanctuary and i don't call them sanctuary cities. they are outlaw cities and counties. you want to talk about the consequences of faulty rhetoric and bad rhetoric? well, montgomery county has essentially turned into east los angeles. you had bo dietl talk about ms-13. i've been reporting on it for upwards of 20 years now. it is the most widespread notorious criminal alien enterprise in this country. the rhetoric of enabling open border progressives have left

there was surveillance legal or otherwise and the unmasking of americans and dissemination so that some of these leaks that have occurred could have come from things that were testify fairously done inside surveillance. that's what he is saying with details pending in investigations. clayton: that's the key. he admitted he didn't have those documents. he have to wait to see what's inside of those documents before we have clear evidence. abby: last night tucker carlson had on bill benning whistleblower he said there is a program on n. place to. >> inside nsa there is a set of people who are -- and we got this from another nsa whistleblower who witnessed some of this. inside there they are targeting and looking at all the members of the supreme court, the joint chiefs of staff, congress, senate and the house. small group looking at it the idea is to see what people have power over you and what they think, what they think you should be doing or what
4:49 am
they're planning to do to you, your budget, or whatever. so you can try to counteract it before it actually happens. pete: pretty strong charge. clayton: we had congressman dennis kucinich on the show he said he has been monitored and surveilled. members of congress, that's what tucker is getting at last night. regardless republicans or democrats. politically the government could be undermining you by tapping your phone and listening in, surveilling you in some way to, you know, move legislation one way or the other. it's horrifying. abby: that's the bigger picture when we talk about awful these investigations going on. you have investigation going on with the intention community, with members of congress. and i think people are trying to wrap their head around all of these different investigations. the bigger picture here is how much power should the government have? does anyone want to be spied on like that whether you are president trump or just somebody else like we should have this conversation. i think it's an important one to have. pete: the next step n process the nsa has delivered new information to the house intelligence community which

they will maul through this week. we may get some of that evidence or indication of what exactly they are revealed about what potential surveillance could have occurred. a lot of opinion around. abby: you mean another week of news next week? pete: may be. be back next weekend too. we have jam-packed show ahead. stuart varney, geraldo rivera, corey lewandowski all here live. abby: big show still to come. incredible video. this teenager saves his choking friend live using the heimlich maneuver. would you know what to do in that situation? dr. jennifer caudle is here to show us next. let's see it, clayton. pete: do it. ♪ safe and sound ♪

5:03 am
so obamacare is exploding with no democrat support. i think the losers are nancy pelosi and chuck schumer because now they own obamacare. they own it. 100 percent own it. and this is not a republican healthcare. this is not anything but a democrat healthcare and they have obamacare for a little while longer until it ceases to exist. which it will at some point in the near future. and just remember, this is not our bill. this is their bill. clayton: geraldo rivera joins us. abby: geraldo joins us on the couch. this is something we have heard before from president trump with the art of deal. the book many people have read. he talks about it i never get attached to one deal. i keep a lot of balls in the air because most deals fall out no matter how promising they seem at first. yesterday had to have been a huge wake-up call for the president, right? >> well, i had a very curious reaction. my first reaction was disappointment that the bill failed but not in substance.
5:04 am
i was disappointed because my friend had failed in his first major legislative effort. you know, the bill itself, i was never crazy about it pete and i discussed it on the radio. i thought it was selfish, harsh, retroin many ways. and, yet, compromise where you get the conservative who feel people should be responsible for their own healthcare and liberal who thinks that single payer, everybody should be taken care of by the government. it's very hard to craft a compromise. and i thought that this was a reasonable compromise if you thought that the previous bill, the obamacare bill was too generous. this was a reasonable compromise, i was very annoyed with the freedom caucus for not backing their president. they are very good at opposing things. very good at raising their voices and being the party of no. but when it comes to actually passing something. pete: we had congressman louie gohmert earlier on the show this morning. he was no vote on this if it would have come to a vote. he said he felt lied to, the
5:05 am
freedom caucus felt lied to in that they were told we would have to roll out the more difficult phases of this at the third phase, second phase. what he said is we learned we could have actually done it all at once. we were lied to. listen to what he had to say. >> we were trying to get to yes. we were trying very hard. in fact, of the president said okay, we'll get there. we'll fix these things that you have asked for. we will do that and then ryan and the other guys come back and say you can't do that. the parliamentarian won't let these things happen. and they had never checked with the parliamentarian. we were trying to help this country and this was a bad bill. because we read it. we knew what was in it. too many people did not. clayton: congressman, can speaker ryan continue on as your leader? >> i don't know. we have to learn from this disastrous mistake. pete: so he and a lot of others are pointing right at speaker ryan. president trump as you heard is pointing at nancy pelosi and the democrats. who should would he be pointing to. >> he is full of bologna. i actually have no patience for these people anymore.
5:06 am
they stand for nothing but their own. pete: you say he is lying? >> louie gohmert is full of bologna. he didn't back his president. what is he for? could you cram craft a bill that provides any semblance of medicine to poor people that that man or any of his caucus would repeal. pete: seven years on repealing and replace. instead of putting a fully throated. speaker ryan watered it down. instead of putting in things going across state lines and bring competition and reduce price. that's what he is referring to. >> i feel very strongly that the freedom caucus would not have passed any healthcare bill whatsoever. if they -- if you said to them go ahead, here's a piece of paper and a pencil, you draw an national health insurance plan that you can support i want to see what's in that plan. the republican party now is dysfunctional.
5:07 am
that's their only plan. how is this a good plan? it's not a good plan. [talking at the same time] >> that's zero plan. what do you do 60 years old. got cancer, no insurance. how is that going to help you? pete: how is obamacare helping you. >> obamacare is giving you mammograms and. pete: mammograms for guys that don't need them and premiums that are skyrocketing hand no health coverage in certain states. failed law. >> you believe ideologically that everybody has he to take care of themselves. i understand that. i believe that this nation owe as shared responsibility to people who cannot take care of themselves. abby: can i jump in here? because let's bring it back to the american people, right? they are the ones in many cases that have been suffering. they have been telling us their stories for seven years now. many of them small business owners. just trying to get off the ground. they have been hurt many of them because of obamacare. yesterday we heard republicans upset that a vote didn't go through. democrats, they were celebrating, they were
5:08 am
praising the fact that they could not come to a vote on this bill. let's take a look at this. >> today is a great day for our country. it's a victory. what happened on the floor is a victory for the american people. >> this is a good day for the american people. >> if you sense a little bit of exuberance on our part, just a little bit, it's on behalf of the american people. >> we breathe a sigh of relief. that sigh of relief is on behalf of the american public. >> i want to thank the very constituents across america who made today possible. today was their victory. >> today was a good day for the good guys. that is a fact my friend. >> so they are praising the status quo, geraldo. i could play you a number of clips from the democrats honest with themselves like bill clinton when he said this is the craziest plan in the world for people who are working the hardest. their peopl premiums are only gg up. is this a healthy thing to be doing right now? >> remember when i remember mitch mcconnell the senate
5:09 am
majority whip deny barack obama any achievement whatsoever. the republicans have been the party of no for seven years. abby: obama also passed that law down partisan lines though, geraldo. >> you can forgive out democrats some gloating now. i want to go back to where we started. you read et excerpt from after the the deal. the art of the deal says if this doesn't work, i will try. this i urge, what a concept. president trump, a republican, working with the democrats and like-minded republicans to craft a bill that, rather than allowing obamacare to explode, or implode, crafts a better bill than that pete says has interstate trade, increases competition. you know, has some of these other issues that people can generally agree on to make a better bill. clayton: can democrats work with the president at all? pete: that's the heart of the question. these are folks that boycotted his inauguration who are resisting.
5:10 am
who say they should be impeached. clayton: back to the mitch mcconnell thing that you joust brought up. >> in part is it t. is as is the opposition to gorsuch the supreme court nominee. i think a lot of that has to do with merrick garland not getting a vote on whether he could be confirmed to the high court. i think that there is some real bitter partisan rancor right now. this is exactly the time where someone has innovative, as unfettered by tradition as donald trump, someone who is not -- who is a post ideological person, i believe, a person whose philosophy is to make, as abby says a deal. i think this is an ideal point where he becomes the grown-up in the room. he says steve bannon you show up. reince priebus you showed up. chuck, remember me from down the street here on 56th street, come on, what do you want? what can i do? what can we do? left's craft. this this bill is too generous here. abby: he is realizing, geraldo, how swampy d.c. actually is. >> that's true. abby: at the end of the day you have these lawmakers who
5:11 am
only care about politics. they forget about what the american people want, president trump, if he wants to do well here, he is going, as you mention i had, take a step back and say you have got to keep fighting for the american people. that's what i ran on. that's what he has got to keep fighting for. >> that's his promise and i really hope that now he can rise like a phoenix from the ashes of defeat. clayton: interesting to watch. i would love to see that happen. pete: but the conservatives would say wait, what happened? abby: you can't win everybody. >> that is exactly the point. this is where you craft the compromise. something as profoundly significant to the american people as their health and their concerns and their anxieties. this bill as creativitied by -- not by louie gohmert. it was not harsh enough by him. speaker ryan who did an excellent job i think. pete: he patted himself on the back yesterday. >> he stepped up to the plate and tried to help the president to the respect that he could. let's take care of edges and
5:12 am
do something more efficient. an answer could have done a better job communicating what was in this bill. there was a real lack of understanding between the lawmakers. >> i don't think there is any bill that you could have written that would have pleased the frey dom caucus. abby: that's what john boehner said. they are never going to come together. >> that's a non-bill. clayton: we have to wrap this up. great to see you this morning. >> great to see you. didn't get the memo on golden ty day. pete: terror attack in london. we now know the terrorists was well known to police. how many lone wolfs are hiding in our own country. the man who tracked down the unabomber has an interesting take next. clayton: healthcare may be over for now what does this mean for the white house and tax reform. stuart varney and core corey lewandowski are up next. ♪ ♪ you had my heart and soul

difference. in case the of the lone wolf. no one knows when they are going to strike. no one tells anyone. they live in a physical and psychological isolation. in the case of a nittany lion wolfknown wolf.these people have attention of law enforcement or maybe come to the friend or associate or roommate or something. and they then at some point in time after law enforcement leaves the picture go out and decide to commit a crime. and some sort of terror attack. and the key, i think here, for us to remember is that a couple things. law enforcement, the fbi certainly here works under guidelines. and a lot of these guidelines came out of the day of watergate back in the 70's. and you have a certain amount of time to do an investigation. and you can take it a certain -- to a certain point. and then have you to stop. if you haven't found anything other than ideology. and with these terrorists,
5:18 am
it's not just being motivated by ideology. it's also kind of that psychological point where they decide. clayton: something triggers them. >> that's the part that may not be there during an active investigation of them and during interviews of their friends. and so law enforcement has to walk away and then a year, maybe two years, maybe four years later, something happens. and everybody is saying how could you have missed this. today, that's compounded by volume. it's compounded by all kinds of other disturbing trends, such as sanctuary cities, the failure to deal with the immigration issue. clayton: right. >> and others. we really have our hands full. clayton: the anti-immigration league report on extremism 25 u.s. residents terror plots. 21 accused of being involved in plotting domestic attacks. americans sitting around thinking this morning that these kinds of things can happen like what unfolded in
5:19 am
london could happen here. at what point can law enforcement jump in? they are watching them. is there anything that could trigger them to jump in beyond them carrying out this horrific act? >> this is a real weakness, clayton, in our system. law enforcement and you see this time and again. the tsarnaev brothers in the boston marathon bombings. the situation with the prophet mohammed cartoon. those people, several attacks last year. people had come to the attention of law enforcement. there was an investigation. that snapshot in time produced nothing but perhaps ideology and that type of thing. they had to walk off and go ahead and worry about other things. because the volume is simply so great. and the guidelines restrict doing anything beyond what they did. this is a real weakness. clayton: unabomber experience, do you have any similarities with what we are facing with these lostles. we see a lot of similarities.
5:20 am
i will give you similarity in ideology that strikes out at me. this takes us a long way back. a few months ago or maybe it was last year, megyn kelly did an interview of bill ayers a very active terrorist in the 1960's and 1970s. he said something very interesting. he said you know i don't think we were ever tout kill people. out to give a message and destroy property. the same thing the euna bomber said. they all think alike. they all have the exact same goal in mind. that is to cause damage and to kill people because people are going to incidentally be killed by the kinds of things they do. nothing changes in their mind. we have to learn as much about them as we can in order to be a couple steps ahead of them. right now i don't think we know enough. and i don't think we are ahead of them right now. clayton: great to see you this morning former deputy assistant director of the fbi. we appreciate you joining us. >> thanks, clayton. clayton: you bet. nobody knows what's going through the president's head better than this man. former campaign manager corey lewandowski joins us next.

pete: president trump taking the healthcare defeat in stride vowing to continue pursuing strategies that will help the america people. clayton: what's going through the president's head this morning after a whirlwind friday? what will his next move being? his former campaign manager corey lewandowski joins us this morning. good to see you this morning. interesting piece in the "wall street journal" this morning about how the president can govern going forward it says he doesn't have a coalition right now. he needs to build a coalition. in order to get things done moving forward, tax reform,
5:25 am
and anything else he wants to do. do you agree with that? >> well, of course the president needs a coalition. he needs to work with his friends and leagues in washington to make sure that he is moving the legislation that he has promised on the campaign trail. but have you to remember something. the president did not come to washington as someone who is a creature of washington. and he is changing washington, d.c. from the inside now. which is something that people don't understand and what the president said about the healthcare legislation was he could have written the sloot salute perfect bill and not one democrat was going to support that bill. what we know is that it took barack obama until march of 2010 to get obamacare through congress. now just after seven years that that bill has been in place. this president is someone who wants to get things done. in the first 60 days he has already tried to get a repeal and replace done. look, it's going to happen. he has made a pledge on the campaign trail. he is going to hold that pledge. we have seen coming to fruition on washington, d.c. does that mean there is more work to do? of course there is.
5:26 am
he has pledged to do it and it will get done. abby: corey, so you know president trump better than many, many people. we saw more of a more calmed version of him yesterday. he didn't send out any angry tweets and message we played this morning. obviously he was upset about this bill but he even talked about reaching across the aisle when the democrats are willing to come to me, i want to negotiate. i want to get this bill done and get it right saying he wants to work with them. work with democrats. help us understand what's going on inside his mind this morning as is he trying to figure out how to move forward, how to get this right. >> the president always said he wants to make sure that the american people have healthcare and what he said on the campaign derail and continues ttrail andcontinues tt going to throw people out people who have preexisting people can't get coverage. that's not going to happen. if you are under 26 years old and want to stay on your parent's healthcare you should be able to do that. that's not a republican or democrat idea. that's an american idea. abby: that means he is never going to get members to the freedom caucus on board.
5:27 am
>> i don't agree with that look, i don't agree with that if the members of the freedom caucus and many of them are friends of mine want to throw people off because they have got preexisting conditions then shame on them. have you to take care of the american people. people under 26 years old need to stay on their parent's healthcare, they should be able to do that. that's not a republican or democrat idea. that's an idea for the american people. there are 10 u.s. senators up for re-election that are democrats in states that donald trump won in the last election cycle. do you know what that means? they are going to negotiate with the president. they are going to come because they want to get reelected. they are going to take care of the american people. there is nothing wrong with taking care of people. that's what the president said. that's what we're going to do. pete: people say they want to resist you and impeach you and not come on board for anything. it's hard to imagine democratic support here. could speaker ryan not have delivered better for his caucus? ultimately it was republican votes that fell short. he was believed he could deliver them and he did not. the president didn't name him by name in the oval office.
5:28 am
is there frustration by the inability of the speaker to deliver this? >> well, i don't want to just blame speaker ryan candidly. i think the entire house leadership and senate leadership were not on the same page when this bill was rolled out. what we saw is the house members were saying that if we pass certain components of this bill due to the arcane rules in the senate the senate wasn't going to be able to do that due to budget reconciliation issues. i said this very clearly. i think it was a mistake not being able to put healthcare when you can cross state lines in your initial bill. we heard this is in version three. i don't know what version three is. what i know is people should have the opportunity and the president has campaigned on this buy healthcare along state lines so there is more competition. i think that should have been part of the bill. i understand the senate parliamentarian would have said that is not relevant. i get all of that what i get. i think it would have helped because it creates more competition. have you to get the bill done. the roll-out probably could have been better and i don't blame any one person in
5:29 am
congress. i don't think that's fair. i think that everybody should have worked more closely to get this bill done for the american people. abby: certainly a wake-up call on how we move forward. a lot more to tackle in the weeks to come. corey lewandowski good to have you here this morning. pete: coming up, do you want to know the reason why donald trump and brexit happened? al gore says easy. it's because of climate change. he nailed it again. abby: president trump says he is moving on to tax reform. can he get it done? stuart varney is here to discuss. come on in. ♪ money, money, money ♪ money ♪ money money money money ♪ money ♪ money money money money ♪ work with awesome people, and we get to make great games.

>> i have always liked. i would say we would probably start going very, very strongly for the big tax cuts and tax reform. that will be next. pete: that was president trump yesterday shifting his focus to another campaign promise. clayton: will republicans be able to come together and deliver on this pledge? let's ask stuart varney host of varney and company on the fox business network. if we had microphones during the commercial break. >> is he fired up. clayton: your contention is holy smokes we could go through the exact same thing again on tax reform that we just went through on health reform. >> i'm here to tell threw is a split in the republican party over tax reform. all republicans agree cut
5:34 am
taxes to individuals. cut taxes to corporations. there is no dispute. that's what everybody wants. the other part of tax reform, however, is a new tax. and it's called the border adjustment tax. you pay a tax on stuff that comes across the border. most -- not most. half of the republican party says we don't want that. the other half says okay, we need that to raise revenue. abby: you are saying the same thing could happen with taxes that we just saw play out yesterday on healthcare. that could be the end result? >> personally i cannot believe that the republican party will deliver another gross failure on top of the gross failure that it delivered yesterday. i can't imagine this. >> revenue at the heart of that right? you cut all of these taxes the individual rate, the corporate rate, where dots does the government get revenue in order to function? that's where that vat tax. >> eventually. but the border adjustment tax brings in revenue to make up for lost revenue from cutting
5:35 am
taxes to individuals and corporations. in other words, it would be revenue neutral. basically. >> a lot of republicans don't want it. but some republicans don't want that new tax and so many do. you have a very similar split on tax reform as you had with obamacare reform which is incredible. abby: what does he do? >> i don't know. i think he was surprised how swampy the swamp actually is in washington, d.c. today. how does he looks forward differently to get it passed? >> you lay down the lawed to the republican party and you say do not do that again. do not embarrass the party and embarrass president trump by another gross failure. get on board, compromise somehow or other. put your ideological differences to one side and get an agreement, please. this is a must. if we don't get a tax reform package, you can abandon the idea that america goes forward to prosperity. you won't have growth and prosperity unless you cut taxes.
5:36 am
pete: we know there is a split. what do you think the average supporter want. drain the swamp. let's get the economy greg. the populist. what do they want him to do? >> they want a tax cut package. they are not necessarily. pete: not worried about the border adjustment. >> they want a tax cut package. prosperity and growth way to do that is cut taxes. make sure the republicans get together and cut taxes. clayton: article in the "wall street journal" this morning talking about how donald trump needs a coalition in order to go forward. he, yesterday, in the oval office said if republicans aren't going to work with me i'm going to work with democrats on this. they like taxes. democrats like taxes. pete: they don't like cutting them. clayton: they could come together on border readjustment tax. he could get those democratic votes. abby: or on infrastructure if they combine the two somehow. >> not out of question that some democrats would jump ship and go to the other side in the event of a tax reform package that had something in it for them and the 10 states
5:37 am
where democrat senators are up for re-election next year. that's a possibility. it's remote. the republican party has to come together, period. abby: you are so right though. the american people work too hard for them to be paying such high taxes and paying that much on healthcare. i don't care what party you are in. >> if you don't get any kind of tax reform. if it just goes out the door and it's another failure, say goodbye to the president trump presidency and prosperity in america. pete: important preview what they need to avoid in order to get the next thing right. >> thank you, pete. abby: good to have you. >> thank you. abby: starting with brexit as we mentioned earlier and president trump the latest example of how damaging climate change can be. well, at least according to al gore. >> it has unleashed with other factors this incredible flow of refugees into europe which is creating political instability in europe. and which contributed in some ways to the desire of some in the u.k. to say whoa, we are
5:38 am
not sure we want to be a part of that anymore. abby: let's try to break this down. his theory goes like this. climate change caused the drought in syria which caused civil war which caused refugees to flood europe causing brexit. makes sense. is nebraska the democratic party encouraging voter fraud. welcoming refugees with a gift basket complete with voter registration form. >> inside each basket there is also a letter from the nebraska democratic party welcoming the family to nebraska. it's signed by me as chair of the party. and then we include a sticker in them for their to put on their car. also includes a voter registration form. abby: of course refugees can't legally vote because they are not u.s. citizens. chair woman jane denies any wrongdoing. pete: details. abby: discount for disconnecting. a pennsylvania restaurant offering 10% off the bill to families who leave their phones at the door.
5:39 am
i love the story. it is a sign sign at the counter reading this. family charging time leave your phone in the basket. tried it out say it was great and wish more places would encourage family time. my husband and i have the same rule when we go to dinner at night phones are gone. clayton: on the car ride to twitter you are on instagram. rick reichmuth outside with a look at the forecast among the throngs of people. >> rick: nice camera work here throngs of people you are are from anderson. what state does that belong to. >> south carolina. lick. >> rick: got to include the state. welcome anderson, south carolina. take a look at the map and show you what's going on. a nice warm day down across there we have severe weather today. get ready for that. get ready all week long. a series of storms pulling in each day. bring rounds of severe weather. we are heading towards that time. aim, one of the -- second busiest tornado months. get ready across the northeast
5:40 am
one patch showers move across upstate new york and kind of northern connecticut in towards massachusetts. down to the southeast we have those storms that we are going to watch mostly some strong winds and some hail but we can't rule out a isolated tornado or two behind it clear out across parts of texas and south carolina. it's going to be a beautiful day. in across the northern plains scattered showers part of that same system. chicago showers. temps looking good. finally out across the west. more rain and mountain snow. that will dry out a little bit by the afternoon. all right. south carolina. >> yes. [cheers] abby: they had a great game last night. thank you, rick. clayton: thanks, rick. still ahead eric bolling. celebrating medal of honor day dakota meyer will be here soon. he will share the story that earned him our country's highest honor. he is here next.

5:45 am
over there. and the, you know, basically the village elders had said that they wanted to renounce themselves from the taliban and bring us in. we were going to go in and help them out and provide security for, you know, to be able to get them to support the government. it was something that we do over there all the time. and we were going in on the mission. and, you know, my team was up ahead. i stayed back with the trucks. you know, what it turned into was the vidged village elders had set us up and brought the whole team. in immediately the team was under attack. so, you know, they were stuck up in the valley. and they were cut off. it was so coordinated that it was insane. so, what ended up happening is rodriguez chavez and myself we kept going in a few times to get those guys out. pete: you call it going few times. hail of gunfire fellow man afghans earning the medal of honor changed your life and
5:46 am
fantastic representative for veterans. also speaking out about the threat we face. whether it's the taliban or isis. this attack in london just this past week. yet another reminder that we have got a threat from radicalism. how do you feel like the west from america is confronting that challenge at this point? >> we will start confronting it a lot better than we have. first off, i have been saying forever is we have to state what the problem is before you can find a solution. we finally have an administration that's not going to be tolerable to this type of behavior. i mean, look, this country was founded to where anybody could come here. they could come here through the right process. they could come here to this country. what they could do is had the same opportunity as anybody else. you could be whatever you wanted to be in this country and be successful. i think that's what makes us great. what i can say is that if we don't go and head this on somewhere else. if we don't go take this threat on that these people are not tolerable. these people want to go against that every moral fiber of our being that made us great, and so if we don't take
5:47 am
it to them, then i promise they are going to come to us. then this thing that we have, it's called a choice for us to be able to choose who we want to be and do what we want to do it will be gone. that is their number one goal to take that from us. pete: comes down to i'd okay. on thiideology.what does it meat medal? >> it means a lot to people. it represents so much. it represents what the greatest of this country is it's not my medal. i'm not a medal of honor recipient. i'm a united states marine that received a medal of honor. it represents the sang sacrifices that were made on behalf of this country and the great men and women who have done it. pete: amen. well said. i know as a vet myself i look at guys who wear that medal and you wear it for every member of our generation as well. thank you four being such a great representative. >> thank you. you are the man, pete. pete: you got it. president trump says obamacare

6:02 am
take a listen. >> we were very close. it was a very, very tight margin. we had no democrat support. we had no votes from the democrats. they weren't going to give us a single vote. so obamacare was exploding with no democrat support. i think the losers are nancy pelosi and chuck summary because now they own obamacare. they own it. 100% own it. and this is not a republican health care. this is not anything but a democrat health care. and they have obamacare for a little while longer until it ceases to exist, which it will at some point in the near future. and just remember, this is not our bill. this is their bill. >> here's why they own it. because why are we repealing and replacing? because obamacare is such a disaster and how many democrats came to the table to help fix it? abby: a lot of people were upset because this is the first real test that republicans -- put them in charge, and they have promised
6:03 am
that they would repeal and replace with something better. >> it's a shame they're not in charge of congress. if only they had a republican president. if only -- >> i think it was a disingenuous argument to point the finger to the democrats. they didn't come to the table. they weren't reached out to. this is their signature health care law that they passed seven years ago on their anniversary. come to the table. republicans owned this from the start and the president was brought into this at the end, according to -- abby: he didn't mention speaker ryan's name yesterday. >> democrats did. >> democrats are the problem. abby: they own the health care as it exists right now, and that's going to be the law of the land for the for seeable future because the republicans couldn't get their act together. he has to be upset this morning because he was promised that they could get this done, that they would have enough votes to pass this. >> speaker ryan failed to build a real coalition.

after seven years we get this crap bill where they can't get enough votes to 216, donald trump had to come in at the last minute try to save it, ultimately there were too many faxes and too much disagreement. the person's got to be looking in the mirror this morning i think is speaker ryan. >> well, cory lewandowski was on the show this morning and said, look, president trump if it's one person that can fix it, it's him. >> the president did not come to washington as someone who is a creature of washington, and he's changing washington d.c. from the inside now, which is something that people don't understand and what the president said about the health care legislation was he could have written the absolute perfect bill and not one democrat was going to support that bill. and what we know is that it took barack obama until march of 2010 to get obamacare through congress. it's now seven years, just after seven years that that bill has been in place. this president is someone who wants to get things done. >> and he didn't even need democrats in this. he didn't have the moderate republicans that speaker ryan

thought we had. those safe republicans he couldn't get onboard. so yesterday this press conference with paul ryan after -- he was the first person to come out and speak on this. it's hard. he's reaching around trying to pat himself on the back a lot. abby: couldn't reach it. >> yeah, he couldn't reach it. take a listen. clayton: he's trying. >> i'm really proud of the bill that we produced. it would make a dramatic improvement in our health care system. i want to thank so many members who helped make this bill better. a lot of our members put a lot of hard work into this. i also want to thank the president. he's really been fantastic. still, we've got to do better, and we will. i absolutely believe that. >> that press conference drove me nuts. now, i like speaker ryan but what that press conference says to me is he's not a leader. what are you proud of? that you got kind of close? you failed. you're thanking members, some
6:06 am
of which bailed on you. oh, shucks we almost got it done. no, you should have stepped up and said president, he failed you. american people, we failed you because we didn't have a good enough plan. we have to go back and get this right. democrats were going to oppose him no matter what, he couldn't deliver. abby: he could have done a much better job. he could have communicated this a lot better to the lawmakers and the american people. but there are off a people people frustrated with the freedom caucus. they didn't put anything forward that was any better, you know? so they were opposing that. we had michelle malcolm on earlier and they said republicans get a big fat f on their effort on this. >> i am one of those millions of people who have been harmed by obamacare, and i know that this fake appeal wouldn't have made my situation or millions of others any better. and this is the problem that so many grassroots limited government conservatives have had with paul ryan.
6:07 am
if you are measured by your actual results as opposed to your effort, he wants an a for effort. that's what that press conference was about, and that's pathetic. conservative measure things by results, not by rhetoric. >> yeah. give had me a trophy for participation. pete: last night we were watching this unfold, and she was, like, why are democrats celebrating this it just felt awful, it felt awkward that democrats -- this should have been a time where they were quiet. they were showing how exciting they were, hillary clinton was tweeting, today was a victory for all americans. really? it made us all feel icky. abby: does she remember what her husband said about this? you have people working hardest in this country, sometimes 60 hours a week, their premiums have doubled. tested this is a crazy system. clayton: obamacare is a utter failure, yet you wouldn't know it when you heard the democrats at the podium yesterday. >> what happened on the floor
6:08 am
is a victory for the american people. >> this is a good day for the american people. >> sense a little bit of exuberance on our part. maybe just a little bit. it's on behalf of the american people. >> we breathe a sigh of relief and that's on behalf of the american public. >> i want to thank the very constituents across america who made today possible. today is a victory. >> today is a good day for the good guys. clayton: if i'm the democratic leadership, i say to them yesterday you be totally quiet. you be totally quiet. abby: that's a great point. you know who lost on all of this? american people. because on the one side republicans who can't come together to pass obamacare and then you have chemicals on the other side cheering about this when they're cheering for the status quo. if you go out around this country, and you talk to people, many of them as we've been saying this morning small business owners who were trying to get off the ground, obamacare has really hurt them and what they're trying to do. clayton: that's right and the status quo is the last thing
6:09 am
americans want right now. but they watch politicians be incompetent. and then the other side laughs at their incompetence saying we're going to do it and they don't do it. and that's why president trump knows the swamp is thick, the swamp is deep, and it's time to move on. let's vote on friday. you had seven years. times up, losers. if you can't get it done, you can't get it done because i'm not you and the swamp. it's about fixing what's wrong. abby: and he said yesterday that he would be willing to work with democrats. because he's realizing, though, if you want to get anything done, you need enough votes for it to pass. and if you're not going to get people in the freedom caucus, try to get some modern democrats. pete: maybe not these, though. they should be ashamed for their actions for celebrating. abby: and says i'm currently on long-term disability and says my insurance costs have more than doubled under the so-called affordable care act like everything else obama did, it's going to me be a
6:10 am
mess. clayton: and it's going to remain a mess because they're sick of the swamp, and they want things to change and who knows. maybe tax reform is that next step and gets it to where obamacare so bad, they can revisit it. what kind of coalition to build? we'll see. abby: i don't know why anyone it was celebrating yesterday on either side. >> except south carolina. abby: unless you're celebrating basketball. pete: ff weekend on to wit. we have other news. abby: yeah, authorities releasing this photo of 52-year-old london attacker khalid, we are now learning that the isis-inspired visited saudi arabia three times but was not anyone's watch list. telling us how difficult it is to catch extremists. listen. >> they all think alike. they all have the exact same goal in mind and that is to cause damage and to kill people. nothing changes in their mind, and we have to learn as much about them as we can in order
6:11 am
to be a couple steps ahead of them. and right now i don't think we know enough. abby: murdered four people including one american when he rammed his car through a crowd on westminster bridge before being shot dead. and five more democrats vowing to block neil gorsuch. they'll support a filibuster called against them by chuck schumer. the senate committee just finishing four days hearing into the nomination. and a federal judge ruling in favor of the president's immigration order the virginia court reducing to join other federal courts halting the revised ban. the department of justice saying this. as the court correctly explains the president's executive order falls well within his authority to safeguard the security. the judge and the past statements should not be included in those rulings.
6:12 am
and talk about a finish. a incredible buzz beater in overtime. [cheering] >> oh, my goodness. abby: wow. nailing the three as time inspires just two seconds after wisconsin tied the game, sending the gators to elite eight. they will meet tomorrow for a ticket to the final four. >> i've nailed that shot before in my mind in the backyard. never on national television. abby: i was going to say we've seen you play basketball. >> think about that. down by two to go to the elite eight. >> i did the same thing double dribble. >> bernie sanders is so 2016. millennials, meet your new hero this morning. >> i have not called for the impeachment yet. he's doing it himself.
6:13 am
>> that's maxine waters. the democrats celebrating as if americans' lives are better today. but should then? we're going to ask ohio congressman tim col i be, a democrat, next. abby: and we're going to ask him when he joins live is he or is he not wearing a tie? we're going to have to wait and see. >> we're going to find out. ♪ if you have moderate to severe ulcerative colitis or crohn's,

what would help is simply being able to recognize a fair price. truecar has pricing data on every make and model,
6:16 am
so all you have to do is search for the car you want, there it is. now you're an expert in less than a minute. this is truecar. >> well, now that republicans dropped the ball on a obamacare replacement, well, president trump says obamacare is going to explode anyway. so do democrats have any plans to prevent that? let's ask one of them congressman tim ryan. congressman, nice to see you this morning. >> thanks for having me. pete: you're still holding a 2:00 p.m. town hall today to
6:17 am
address the issues in akron, ohio of what trump care would have looked like for your voters; is that right. >> yes, sir. >> so that's still going on despite the faok like it's going to go forward. the president pointing the blame right at democrats saying, look, this is yours. you guys own obamacare. the best thing for us right now politically is let this thing implode and then come in and work with democrats to get something through. what yowhat do you think of his statement yesterday? >> well, you know, the president tends to push blame off on other people. that's a pattern of behavior. they control the house of representatives. the republicans control the senate. he's a new republican president. there's really no excuse why he shouldn't have been able to pass his own initiative, other than this bill really was a disaster. it was chasing their political rhetoric over the last seven years instead of just trying to fix the issues that obamacare had. we expanded coverage to 20 million people, layoff prevent care, substance abuse,
6:18 am
mental health, people are now getting that coverage. but obamacare is not perfect. it's not flawless. we need to fix things. so they didn't come with a plan to make adjustments to the things that needed fixed that would allow us to make it more affordable to more middle class people and move the system more towards apprehension than the disease care system that we're in now. >> so you do admit it is costly for some americans. for many americans, we've seen premiums go up, double and triple in some cases. what would you bring to the table in meeting with the president? how could come together to get affordable care for all americans passed? >> well, one of the things we could do is expand the credits. the credits ended a family that make about $90,000 a year. if you make 100,000 or 125,000 or in some areas of the country $150,000 a year you're still living paycheck to paycheck, working-class family, we should help those
6:19 am
families pay for health care. i think we do need to increase competition in some of the rural areas. the problem is there was an insurance transfer program in which we would help insurance companies to go into riskier areas like rural areas. we hear a lot about these insurance companies are dropping out of certain areas. we were supposed to help them. there's no business incentive for them to go there. this is the whole problem with health insurance. so we were helping insurance companies be competitive and provide services in rural areas. and the republicans got that program in 2015. so those are the kinds of things we can do. this is all fixable if we sit down like reasonable people and actually try to solve the problem and not beat each other up and demagogue it. >> i think the american people are sick and tired of that, though. >> well, i'm sick it and tired of it. we're all sick and tired of it. >> look, i think americans are upset, even on the supreme court nominee. you have the attract ability right now, chuck schumer and others saying they're going to
6:20 am
filibuster the supreme court nominee. a highly qualified candidate for the supreme court. would you stand by that? >> well, you know what? honestly i haven't been paying that much attention to what's going on in the senate. we've had our hands full in the house as you know for the last couple of weeks. so chuck schumer has to make that decision for themselves. but i will say the american people want to work on their behalf and stop the partisan food fight. >> will you work with the president on tax cuts? >> yes. the tax code needs simplified. we need to make sure that startup businesses don't get overwhelmed with any kind of major tax burden. entrepreneurism has to thrive if we're going to create a new economy in the united states. i'm for a reduction in the corporate tax rate. i'm for a progressive tax code. i think if you're making a billion dollars a year, you should pay more in taxes to help if you understand the roads and bridges and broadband and education, the things we need to fund. research. but i'm definitely willing to
6:21 am

6:24 am
>> welcome back to fox and friends. quick headlines for you. if you have the cash, you can explore the titanic. >> something similar to that. starting next year, tourists are taking off on a eight-day expedition to where the famous vessel wrecked that leads from canada and the price tag of three days of dives more than $100,000 if you got the cash. and it might lighten your load. but would you trust an uber
6:25 am
driver shuttling around your teenager? the car service rolling out teen uber while the child is inside workers' compensation parents receive notifications and the ability to track and call the driver. i know some folks that might use that. abby: that might work. thank you, pete. >> well, los angeles is ignoring the trump administration's to crack down on illegal immigration and the city is actually doing the opposite. the mayor is forbidding city employees from cooperating with federal agents. >> in los angeles, we don't separate children from their peoples families because it's inhuman. in los angeles we don't because they speak a different language or speak another language. that's un-american. abby: don's son was killed by an illegal immigrant, and he's live in l.a. this hits close to home for you because you lost your son by an illegal immigrant, and you live in the city of l.a. first off the top to remind people, what happened to your son? >> my son was a law student in san francisco, he was coming
6:26 am
home from school when an illegal alien made a last second left-hand turn, collided with him. and then trying to flee drove back and forth over his body three times killing him. >> so he would still be alive. >> well, he would have been alive if the guy just stopped. but certainly he would have been alive if it weren't for the illegal immigrant and other things in the system that could have prevented this, you know, prior -- even if the guy was here could have prevented it. abby: this has got to be such an emotional issue for you, and you're in the heart of it right there in l.a. where the mayor there, he has banned airport police and firefighters from cooperating with federal immigration agents, not letting them do their job. what's going on where you are? >> i guess insanity would be the easy answer. you know, what's amazing about what garcetti is doing, aside from
6:27 am
getting ready to run for his next office, is he's jeopardizing the health safety welfare everybody in los angeles and the surrounding area. if we learned one thing from the 9/11 commission when it came to terrorism, is that law enforcement has to work together. and look what just happened in england this week. so you have a terrorist wasn't on the watch list, could have flown to los angeles, and he's telling the los angeles police don't work with the federal authorities, even at the airport? i mean, it's criminal behavior on his part. and then you listen to his other comments, which is we don't separate families. well, yes, we do. we separated my family, and you've separated tens of thousands of families. you never talk about that. you talk about separating families where people have committed crimes, and you say that that's democrat onizing them. it's outrageous.
6:28 am
abby: committing crimes when had shouldn't. if you were to go face to face in l.a. in your town there, what would you say to him? because this obviously hit so close home to you and so many others that have lost someone so close to them. >> well, first, i would tell them to resign because he took an oath of office, which he has violated. and then i would tell him that he better watch out because he needs to be indicted and convicted. he's violating federal law. he's obstructing, he's obstructing justice. and if he wants to talk about demonizing, he's the one doing demonizing because he's comparing legal law-abiding immigrants with illegal aliens. so they're doing the demonizing and of course the l.a. times does absolutely nothing to tell the truth of what's going on. i mean, they haven't even run a story about that 14-year-old girl that was raped and sexually assaulted in florida, but they did run a story front
6:29 am
page above the fold about a woman -- hispanic woman that was asked by a stupid waiter are you in the country illegal? that gets a front full-page story, but a rape, no story at all. abby: well, that's why you're here. i know it's not easy to come out, and we appreciate that and sorry for all you've been through. >> no. i appreciate it. i want to get the truth out. >> thank you for helping. . >> all right. coming up, should you be allowed to crowd if you understand a family vacation? a mother now sparking a big debate online over her trip to disney world. more on that coming up. and eric bowling says the health care's bill failure was the best thing to happen to republicans. eric joins us on the curvy couch, and he's wearing a tie. whoa, this thing is crazy. i just had to push one button to join. it's like i'm in the office with you,

abby: live look there at the white house in washington d.c. where our own ainsley earhardt will be probably going to dc soon. coming up on tuesday, she'll be sitting down with laura and eric trump, abexclusive sit
6:34 am
down as some of you may know eric, they're expecting their first child coming up in december. you're not going to want to miss that. coming up tuesday morning. >> that's right. you're also not going to want to miss right now eric bowling. thanks for being here. abby: you did get up early, and you wore a tie for us. >> yeah. i am wearing a tie. >> you said this bill not papua new guinea yesterday is the best that could have happened. >> yeah. best thing that could have happened. we did the math and a lot of some of trump's billings voting blocks, the groups 50-64 and over 65 lower income people were going to get destroyed with health care premiums and deductibles rising massively. it went from 1,700 a year to 14,000 a year. we talked about that. but can you imagine these house members going to town halls next summer, 2018, they're up for reelection, and they have massive, massive premium and deductible increases, they would get destroyed. >> that's what govern huckabee talked about. he said these were the trump voters. the factory worker on his feet all day long in the factory and now who is going to see
6:35 am
their premiums go up. >> there's one thing they could have done, and we talked about state lines. think of it this way. they said don't worry down the road, we'll get state lines done, you're not going to get that either because you need 60 votes. better way to put a better bill together where that was in the first and then work through. >> but now those members have to go back to their district and defend that obamacare who's holding the bag here? >> i've called it ryan care from the very beginning. it's not fair to say ryan only. it was house leadership. it was the leadership groups. it was ryan, it was brady, a couple other five or six others who said this is the bill we're going with. conservatives, the freedom caucus, you know? they may be obstructionist in this, but they want to be part of that process, and they were excluded in that process. the leadership said, no, we have the votes. this is our bill. we're going to go for it. abby: yeah, they clearly didn't. we had congressman on this morning as well, and he was really up in arms. he said actually the freedom caucus we were totally lied to
6:36 am
by speaker paul ryan. >> do you remember rand paul walking through the halls of the house. >> trying to find the bill? >> show me the bill so i could post it online. they had it locked down, and they wouldn't even let us see it. >> they felt lied it to. listen to what he had to say. >> they were trying to get to guess, we were trying very hard. in fact, the president said. okay. we'll get there. we'll fix these things that you've asked for. we'll do that. and then ryan and the other guys come back and say you can't do that. the parliamentary won't let these things happen. they have never checked. we were trying to help this country and this was a bad bill because we read it -- we knew what was in it. too many people did not. >> congressman, can ryan continue on as your leader? >> i don't know we have to learn from this disastrous mistake. >> same question to you. can he continue on? >> no. abby: really? >> i guess he can, but it wouldn't be wise.
6:37 am
they told president trump they were going to deliver a bill that the american people -- congress could get behind and the american people, and they delivered something that was absolutely terrible. >> how did they stand at the podium then saying i'm proud of this bill. i mean, what was that? >> i could be conspiratorial. there's no love loss between paul ryan. trump at one point went to paul ryan's opponent, primary opponent was paul, remember that? there was some of that going on and then backed off the support of trump for a while. so there was a lot of that going forward. very quickly the politics play out this way. obamacare stays intact for now; right? if the premiums continue to skyrocket, if the system starts to bog down or break, which it likely will, then trump can come in and say you know what? this is on you, democrats, i'm going to, say, this. there are ways to do it economical to offer incentives, to keep people insured and then come back with the other plan. in the meantime, you have to
6:38 am
do tax reform i mean, the american people. abby: we have not had comprehensive tax reform since the year i was born. 1986; right? this is something president trump has talked a lot about. why did they do it first, though? >> i don't know why they didn't do it first. in fact, rand paul said we can do it simultaneously, which is counter to everything they tell us. here's what you have. a ceo commander-in-chief right now who's used to getting things done. if he's given something he's told is going to work, he expects it to work. so he's feeling his way out right now, and i think you're going to see him be much more effective going forward. tax reform is one of those things are the freedom caucus and the moderates, everyone's behind tax reform on the gop side. so it will get through. >> can speaker ryan deliver the coalition and bring in some democrats, maybe, but in reality, it's going to be republicans. >> here's what you're going to end up. it's going to be another battle on the hill. yes, all republicans want tax reform. but the battle is going to be how do you pay for it? so you have massive tax cuts but there has to be a pay for for some of the house
6:39 am
members. you're going to end up with a border tax. you're going to end up with a border tax that's going to pay for. >> yeah, and if the president doesn't want to touch entitlements. where is that money coming from? infrastructure. >> the best thing they could come up with was what they were presenting after seven years going into elections, they were going to get destroyed. >> eric, we love you, but i've been barrel listening because i've been smelling food. international waffle day and when we come back we've got some waffles in the studio. >> we'll have some waffles. abby: it smells so good. >> some of the craziest waffles out there. >> this was mine. >> and jeremy is here. you make waffle surprises. >> we do. are these called wtf waffles for obvious reasons. >> what does that stand for?
6:40 am
>> we make three different waffles that are always on our menu. 90 washington street, velvet waffle. >> let's start with the essence. the core of it, which is the waffle. how do you get a good waffle? >> a lot of experimentation. >> let us in on what you experimented. >> we wanted it to be light, not overly filling. we have a lot of beer guard tables, so these are obviously shareable between four people. >> i'm not sharing that. are you kidding me? if you were to serve me this red velvet situation, i'm not sharing any of you. >> i would like to watch that. >> can you break this one down? >> yeah. so it's an or i don't base, obviously, on the plate and then a we had velvet waffle infused with a red velvet whip cream. >> okay. >> and then we actually take a whole slice -- >> cake on top. >> ice cream in the middle with chocolate sprinkles and then a whole piece of red
6:41 am
velvet -- >> any include on the calorie count? >> we're known for our beers. we have 20 draft lines. if you've heard of the beer, we probably don't have it. >> can you make something here? >> oh, yeah. make your own waffle here. >> you put this on first and then layer with ice cream. >> and then kitkat and then top it all. >> didn't even get to this one. >> that's called a carnival. a lot of people get that for their birthday. >> you get a cone. >> he's drinking a beer. >> take a cone. >> thank you, jeremy. >> so we're at clifton hall in
6:42 am

6:46 am
fox news contributor richard fouler. david, i'm going to go to you first. who owns this? is it the democrats and would they ever be a part of fixing it? >> no. look, the democrats own it because they never read it. they're going to market it in a different way but the fact is the american people are the ones paying the price when you have something subsidized by one part of the population and affects 18% of the economy. that's what democrat-born health care is. and the republicans need to get off their you know what's and get it together in washington and start fixing this problem, which is -- that's what they promised. >> so, richard, right now a failed obamacare law is still the law of the land as we wake up this morning. who owns that? >> i think everybody owns that. everybody here in washington owns that. and i think it's time for washington to fix it. if you talk to nancy pelosi or chuck schumer, they would tell you they're working with the president to improve. not repeal and replace but
6:47 am
let's repair it. and i think if donald trump is open to that conversation, so are democrats. but if we're -- >> teaching, things like that. are they truly willing to come to the table? >> i can absolutely tell you that they are. >> let's not spin this. chuck schumer says he opposes the president. the democrats have laid out -- >> nancy pelosi said yesterday. >> washington owns this. democrats 100% voted for obamacare. >> listen. listen. david. david. >> word on that. so let's take them at their word. >> here's the facts. for seven years republicans have been talking about repeal and replace. repeal and replace. they had a chance to repeal and replace it and guess what? they utterly failed. yesterday was a failure of the republican party. it was a failure of paul ryan's leadership, and you cannot blame that on chuck schumer, nancy pelosi, or barack obama. that's just ridiculous. >> first of all, richard, i wasn't. the fact is the democrats
6:48 am
created this failure of the american people. and i agree with you, if you let me finish. i agree with you that the republicans need to get together and fix it. both the freedom caucus, the more moderate members. there's a lot of work for them to do there to come to some compromise. but fixing this is for the american people and the democrats who don't understand basic economics, and you obviously don't. >> i understand -- david, you live in a glass house don't throw stone. what donald trump is doing is flavoring glass house and throwing stones. republicans have the white house, they have the senate, they have the house. yesterday if they really hated obamacare so much and if the economics were so bad, they would have fixed it, and had didn't. >> they may get another chance, we'll see. we'll see if the democrats ever do come to the table. >> we're willing to. we can make it happen. >> richard and david, thank you very much this morning. appreciate it. >> thank you. >> coming up a story you're not going to want to miss.
