3:05 am
chinese would only take limited action. we're going to test that assumption. we're going to test their willingness to help us address this serious threat that it's not only one to the region and us but is becoming a threat to china themselves. so we're asking that they evaluate the situation. steve: absolutely. meanwhile how do you feel about it? a brand new fox news poll out. take a look right here. u.s. taking military action to stop north korea's nuclear weapons program. are you for it or against it? a majority of americans, 53 to 39 are for it at this point. ainsley: what will stop north korea's nuclear weapons program 51% in this fox news poll said u.s. military force. more than half. 36 percent said diplomacy alone. brian: last one what's the greatest threat to america 38% north korea. only 21% isis, then russia, china and iran. the defense system that thad missile system which has the chinese bent out of shape, it's going to be ready to come online in a matter of days.
3:06 am
no one has the answer to this. china is going through a series of defensive drills and war games. they are game planning this out. are they wondering how they will act? are they expecting a u.s. attack? and what exactly -- what message are we supposed to be getting from this even from south korea who is undergoing an election right now? also, when you look at what is happening in that region, the question is what took place in that briefing with those 100 senators where some people like tammy duckworth said it was a waste of time and others like senator coons said this is sobering and briefed why not donald trump but joint chiefs of staff. wondering if we are in a place we have never been before about a nemesis and problem that's been around for 30 years. ainsley: when you look at these polls what it reminds me of i didn't realize they think north korea is a bigger threat than isis. that surprised me. brian: nuclear program proliferator. ainsley: what i learned is measures are saying we are not
3:07 am
going to take it anymore. we are tired of other countries telling us how to respond and bullying us. this president is saying you know what? we will try everything we can for diplomacy. this could be the result. military force. brian: it's not iraq. steve: most importantly we have china on our side seemingly this time. let's see what happens. brian: only thing different i would like to add, steve, if i could. it's not iraq. million man army with million man reserves. they have nuclear sites in which we can't identify all of them. nobody thinks we can hit them all right away a preemptive strike. ainsley: with a dictator. brian: even though military parade was full of balloons and military rockets. we don't know for sure what's going on there. ainsley: dictator is telling them god knows what he is telling all his supreme. i'm sure when senator mccain said he was -- what did he say the crazy fat leader or whatever? brian: the iii. ainsley: i'm sure highs people didn't hear that comment. has he total control of the
3:08 am
newspapers and messaging. brian: 200,000 in what amounts to concentration camps. steve: today is 99 of the president's first 100 days in office. and you know the white house really did want a vote, a second vote on obamacare. and how majority leader kevin mccarthy confirmed last night no vote this week. that's not good news for the white house. the problem is they just don't have the votes. the house republican leadership knows they can afford 22 defections. they have at least 21 against it at this point. and many more undecided. so what they are doing today is they are trying to pass a one week continuing resolution that would give them enough money to fund the government for the balance of fiscal year 2017. ainsley: freedom caucus were on board now. they were all or nothing. if you are going to be part of the freedom caucus we are all on board with this now. the moderates are having a problem with some the changes. brian: 80% of the freedom caucus justin more a conservative out of michigan says i'm not answering rights now.
3:09 am
a moderate like dan donovan who said i can't get behind this. the tax credit for people, help paying for -- helping pay for premiums. premiums is not there you also have a new york congressman who is not behind it. so you have a lot of people that just won't answer when they're asked go to be -- asked how they are going to vote. too much a risk so they won't put it forward. which means they have got to make it changes if it is indeed possible to satisfy moderate republicans and conservative republicans. it plight not be possible. ainsley: are you okay with the republicans being split on this. brian: they just don't have the numbers. ainsley: do you think they should have gotten together before the first 100 days to try to watch it. brian: we're watching c-span, this whole take place before our ice as things leak out to different outlets who saying we are find this guy is not with it. this woman can't vote with it. this one is on board. one thing is clear not one democrat has jumped the line. ainsley: democrats. brian: not even trying. ainsley: democrats got it right. you probably don't agree with obamacare. they knew how to give their president a win at the time.
3:10 am
they got that right. a lot of people don't like obamacare but at least they were behind their president. i feel like the republican party is so split within congress that he has his hands tied. the he wants something, the country wants something but the republicans in congress can't get it together. steve: the democrats were certainly unified when it came to passing obamacare. ainsley: even though they didn't read the bill. steve: had you to pass the bill before you could read it meanwhile yesterday, we had been telling you for the last week, ann coulter was scheduled to go to the university of california at berkeley. they cancelled because they he could not provide the. screen right, cops in riot gear were propped for possible violence between her supporters and the people who were anti-court people. she hoe to a lot of people. at least six people were arrested and hundreds gathered. as you can see right there to yell at each other essentiall essentially. brian: i love what this g.o.p.

lawmakers in wisconsin are doing. students expelled if they are to attack or stop a speaker on different campuses. it's -- the conservative gold water institute addressing these recent problems have put this forward. some lawmakers in wisconsin are pushing it forward. i think it's about time. people of all different beliefs get a chance to do this thing called talk behind the podium. ainsley: you know it's a bad thing whether you have joy behar and whoopi goldberg and bill maher and bernie sanders saying she should be speaking that ann coulter should have been allowed to speak at berkeley. brian: she is talking immigration. oh my goodness. you know what you got. she is already on the record. go out there and interact. maybe they feel as though they can't outspeak her or outdebate her because she will open up the floor and debate you. instead of allowing her debate taking iran you do the cowardice thing of preventing her from going on. ainsley: they don't like her message so they are using the safety thing to prevent her from speaking. can i guarantee if you called

3:18 am
edge this morning as tensions rise between the u.s. and north korea. so how should the trump administration respond to these increasing threats? here now to weigh in is former director of affairs at the white house national security council and current vice president of jones group gillian turner. jillian, good to see you. >> good morning. ainsley: good to see you. what did you think of his response we might have to use military force. >> i think that's something that's obvious. it's been on the table for many, many years. i think during the obama years. folks, officials really shied away from using that kind of language. president trump has decided that he is going to kind of harness all the tools in his toolbox and put it out there as a means of detouring them from doing anything crazy. ainsley: is it refreshing to hear that from a president? >> it is. in this situation with a nuclearized adversary, i think there is particular, as you know, particular risks. so, the president knows. this no one needs to tell him that. for example, he is in constant contact last week with china
3:19 am
and with south korea and with japan on this issue. those foreign heads of state have all been urging caution and restraint and don't escalate anything. and president trump is not listening to them. is he forging ahead. he is blazing his own trail based on what he believes are america's national security interests, which is admirable but it has risks. ainsley: when he ran, i remember the democrats saying you want to put his hand on the nuclear code or put the nuclear code on his hands? he is going to be trigger happy. we are seeing a difference here. first of all, he said we are praying for peace. secondly, we are going to try for diplomacy. work trying to get a relationship with china so we can prevent something from happening with north korea. but, last resort, is he basically saying i'm not afraid. i'm not afraid to maybe if we have to we might have to go war to stop this guy. >> it's smart power i hate to borrow a hillary clinton term to describe what president trump is doing. but it really is it's a combination of diplomacy, hitting the gas pedal full speed on diplomacy but also
3:20 am
using a little bit of military, not taking military action against north korea but like. ainsley: threatening them at least. >> escalating the rhetoric is what he is doing right now. that's the best we can hope for. ainsley: how about these polls? this morning showing a fox news poll. 53% favor taking military action in north korea. they are saying the biggest threat to the u.s. is not isis. 38% said north korea. 25 percent said isis. so there is a big difference. >> in my estimation they are right. north korea, you know, may not have been front and center throughout the whole election campaign cycle the last few years of the way isis and radical islam was. but it's an existential threat. meaning any nuclearized foreign state that is willing to potentially use that against the united stating existential threat.
3:21 am
i think the results of those polls are really smamplet. ainsley: thank you for being here. >> you're welcome. ainsley: this organizer isn't just a terrorist anymore. what she admitted in court is getting her deported. elizabeth warren isn't happy with barack obama for his $400,000 payday. we are going to talk about that. ♪ buy me love ♪ truecar shows you what other people paid for the car you want. you already know that; you've probably heard me say it. but here's something you might not know: after you see what others paid,

3:26 am
screen the film to critics here in washington, d.c. steve: bad sign. >> when they don't screen a film, it's usually not a good sign, exactly. they are trying to hide the film from critics. so i went and saw it last night. i'm wondering how could this possibly be bad? a great filmmaker who made the spectacular now. a great film. you a great cast tom hanks, emma watson, karen guillen. and then have you a great writer greg edgars and composing danny elken. how could it go wrong? begs the question about social media and technology. the company wants to take away basically all of our privacy and we basically live our lives and overshare everything. it's essentially what we are doing now but obviously times a thousand. social media and what we are doing. but it really does have an interesting concept and really kind of makes you think. that's the thing. i'm wondering how could this possibly get messed up. the problem is it's frustratingly sloppy. you could tell that there were things not written well.
3:27 am
the script is very, very, very bad. emma watson for me, i loved her in perks of being wall flower. very wooden in this performance. tom hanks is always great. bill paxton his final performance he is great in the film. there are some good things that go with the performances but the overall idea is lost because the script feels like out actors are reading the script for the first time when you are watching. ainsley: that's not good. >> i just found the film to be us from straght. this is a film that was primarily shot in 2015. and i know you had some reshoots early this year. this movie -- to me great show on netflix called black mirror that show tawcketdz talks about the idea of social media and oversharing. very similar concept but done in a much better way. if you want to see something like, this just watch black mirror on netflix. this movie i gave 1.5 out of 5. i thought it was poorly overall i found it to be --
3:28 am
ainsley: why did they sign up for a movie that was going to be such flop. >> tom hanks produced the movie u that's why i'm trying to figure out what happened. sometimes you sit in a movie theater and go how could this possibly have gone wrong considering who is behind this film? i found it to be -- my wife looked at me last night and said kevin, this is basically a bad episode of black mirror that show by the way is amazing it's on netflix if you want to check it out there. steve: it's great you were able to turn that to you and able to turn that into an ad-lib on this program. ainsley: that's right. >> that is true. yeah. by the tbla are some great films out right now if you want to see some things in theaters. fate of the furious. definitely one of the ones i love. action movie with vin diesel. i loved it if you are a fan of the fast and furious franchise. i recommend seeing it close to making a billion dollars already. logan and get out two films still in theaters. the fate of the furious largest opening in the history of cinema globally.
3:29 am
insane how well that film did. made like $900 million in the first 10 days. that's a really good film. logan is great. get out is great. and then la la land is available on blue ray if you want to watch that. brian: or stay home and talk to each other. steve: like the olden days or listen to the radio. ainsley: sound like they watch movies together and talk about it. brian: so annoying watching a movie with kevin and his wife. steve: both movie critics. thank you very much. >> steve: have a celebrate weekend. >> i love you guys so much. ainsley: what were you going to say. >> i was saying being married to a film critic is the greatest thing that could have ever happened happened to me. amazing. brian: we already made our choices but i will keep that in mind. >> thanks, brian. [laughter] ainsley: we should have married news anchors? brian: i guess. so let's go home and read the prompter together, honey. [laughter] nothing more romantic.
3:30 am
let's find the misspellings in the process. let's look for the vowel. protests at berkeley erupt after ann coulter was forced to cancel speech amid rising violence. why do liberals only thing free speech are only for them. steve: didn't label the media to label tax cuts as tax cuts for the wealthy. >> someone making $150 million pay less than 50% tax rate. >> mr. secretary as you know a lot of the reports on this says a lot of tax cuts for the rich in congress. steve: a lot went on like that. stuart varney will be on the other side of a quick time-out. ♪ you know it don't matter anyway. ♪ you can rely on your old man's money ♪ you can rely on on the old man's money. it's a bithch girl. gone too far ♪ money won't get you too far ♪ get you too far ♪

3:36 am
reporting on this says this is a lot of tax cuts for the rich. and if that is portrayed as such, you will have a tough time in congress. ainsley: are any of those journalists curious about what it means for the middle class and for other people that are affected for the rest of us? steve: let's talk to stuart varney he joins us now live it? >> is astonishing the way the media is characterizing the president's proposals a give away to the rich. how many times have we heard that in the last 15 years heaven's sake. let's get it straight. every single person in america who pace federal income tax will get a tax cut. the biggest cut in tax rates goes to the middle class. for example, the 15% maximum tax rate on small businesses. that's down from 39%. ainsley: that's a huge savings. >> that's a middle class tax cut huge and effects ten fers of millions of americans. rich people by contrast they get a cut from 39% to 35%. hardly the same kind of stuff.
3:37 am
brian: flock it out to 25%. have it just go down four points is signature you can't. >> yes, it is. brian: president obama that jacked it up after he won re-election. this is a very tired response to the idea of cutting taxes. give away to the rich. what i noticed now it's not just confined to the pundits who are saying this and to the editorial pages, it's bleeding over into the news pages. look at this, from a "new york times" this morning. this is from the news pages of the "new york times."i'm going . okay? brian: if you can want you can read it? >> the outline mr. trump offered on wednesday less a tax overhaul plan less of costly cut with no price tags attached rushed into the president -- rushed out by the president staring down 100 day mark. that is editorial in a news item. it tells you that they -- they are a johnny one note. tall is a give away to the rich. that's all it is. steve: ultimately the impetus for this is to get the economy going. >> of course.
3:38 am
steve: the more people have in your pockets whether you are a person or corporation or small business or whatever, you're going to be able to put that towards something else and buy something else. that just gets the wheels of our capitalism moving. >> two things. they will say that the rich people who get a tax break, they won't spend that money, therefore, it won't have any impact on the economy. wrong. they may well invest it. and invest. ainsley: that's why they are rich. they know how to make money. >> secondly middle class people get enormous tax cut that goes right into the economy that stimulates the economy. that gives us growth down the road. that's it. now, wait a second, in about 45 minutes, an hour or so, we're going to get a reporter from the government. that growth in the economy, in the first quarter of the year was terrible, absolutely terrible. the left will say oh, that's all donald trump's fault. show me the left's growth plan, please, they don't like the president's growth plan. what's theirs? they don't have one. steve: sure. >> they just don't have one. steve: the same with taxes.
3:39 am
the left and mainstream media may be complaining about the taxes. and his proposed cuts. but what's their idea? i mean, every person would love to pay less tax. >> what is their idea? spend more government money and tax more? tax and spend? that's the old way of doing it. it didn't work. what's wrong with the new way. you cut taxes. especially for the middle class and you grow the economy. brian: i'm curious to seat answer. because without deductions, how can you honestly say the rich are paying 5% in taxes? because the thing they did is eliminate a lot of the deductions and a lot of the loopholes. >> rich people pay a whole bunch of money in state taxes. state income taxes. they are no longer deductible. rich people take a hit. big one. steve: we will be watching you at 9:00 this morning over on fox biz. >> good. steve: 9 to noon. >> all the way through to noon. good show. ainsley: happy friday. >> thank you. ainsley: jacque has headlines for you. jackie: good morning, varney.

♪ steve: protests at berkeley erupt after ann coulter was forced to cancel her speech yesterday amid rising threats of violence. the college is blaming the cancellation on security reasons but ann coulter not buying that. >> there are ways of dealing with violence. that's why we have a police force. the police captain's argument was we can't have ann coulter. there's going to be violence. well, i don't know, call a cop. what's your job? steve: why do liberals think the first amendment only applies to them in the president of berkeley college republicans and a correspondent at campus troy warden joins us now with reaction. trey, good morning to you. thanks for joining us today from san francisco. >> thank you for having me on. steve: what do you think about her argument hey, the cops can protect me. there is obviously a double standard to play here. >> that's absolutely true.

it's the job of the university police department to ensure the safety of students and attendees at political events and speaking events such as ours. and the fact that the university effectively told the cops to stand down, that's, in effect, silencing our right to free speech and making our events dangerous. we can't move forward with them if we can't guarantee the safety of the attendees or the speaker. >> troy, explain what i meant when you said the police were told to back down. a couple months ago milo was out there and violent protests and riots as well. if something like that happen, the cops were told just let them burn the place down? >> well, essentially that's what happened on february 1st when we invited milo. to speak. ann coulter was cancelled
3:47 am
because the police department was told not to intervene to protect our attendees unless there was a life threatening situation. in other words, police were told not to do their jobs. steve: another example of how there is a double standard on how berkeley handles conservative speakers versus liberal or progressive speakers is their curfew. explain how that works. >> well, the amazing thing is the university, without even notifying us, in consultation with the university police department and the city of berkeley designed a policy that's unwritten. that's subjective. that's arbitrary that essentially says high profile speakers such as ann coulter can't speak past 3:00 p.m. now, this is being applied unequally because the former president of mexico, an ardent trump critic, vicente fox was able to speak past 3:00 p.m. just after we cancelled our
3:48 am
david horowitz event. in other words, high profile speaker for the university means conservative speaker. so conservative speech is being curtailed at the university through an unwritten policy and we have yet to see the university prevent us with something in writing. something we can actually fight against. steve: whole idea of university, that's where did you go to hear other ideas. universities, troy, are not supposed to takes sides. >> no, they're not. you go to a university in order to hear different points of view. what we wanted to do what the berkeley college republicans wanted to do was to make people understand where trump supporters are coming from in terms of the immigration debate. and we were absolutely unable to do that. i detail at length in my article for campus, exactly all the measures and parameters the university put in place to assure that our event could not go through. quite unfortunate. now students have been

but some sadly have to be necessary in that every day or every president that we move past they become more and more dangerous. we keep waiting for the next generation of kims to be more sane and more rationale and it keeps getting worse. i mean, the grandfather was an actual war fighter. we now who he crazy kim jong il was. the son takes over totally unworthy. killing his uncle and family and half-brother using weapons of mass destruction. secretary of state tillerson was very telling when he said we are not looking to unify the peninsula. we are not looking to overthrow the regime. we along with china are looking to get nuclear weapons out of that country. but the question is we can't ever believe that they are actually do that. because every time they say they are going to do it, they never do. we can never talking to them has yielded no results. steve: we need the help of the chinese u and the president said he hopes to get help from the chinese premier. the president there referred to him as a good man in hopes
4:05 am
that kim jong un is rationale enough to engage in diplomacy. which is essentially what rex tillerson, ourselves says as well. brian: can you imagine? yes, let's listen. >> we are asking a lot of the chinese u in the past the chinese would only take limited action. we're going to test that assumption. we are going to test their willingness to help us address this serious threat that it's not only one to the region and to us but is becoming a threat to china themselves. and so we're asking that they evaluate the situation. ainsley: not only a threat to us but a threat to china. the president has said is he going to pray for peace. going to try for 2keu7 employee macy. that's why he is going to try to have a good relationship with china so they can influence north korea. but in that doesn't work -- steve: one other thing in the news the president of taiwan called the president of the united states. donald trump and said congratulations. and that caused a big problem with big china. well, apparently now the president of taiwan says he would like another phone call with president trump.
4:06 am
and president trump has made it very clear you're not going to get a phone call because i'm working with big china over here. ainsley: i don't want to do anything to make them mad. i need them more than i need you. brian: just say this for the record. if president obama had broken through to personal terms with the head of the president with the leader of china and obama had broken up personally, everyone would be lauding their personal relationship and how it broke years of distrust. so far have you seen to have broken off years of distrust with a personal relationship between, which was our arch enemy three months ago and not one person has said well, have you got to give president trump credit. we will see what happens a little bit down the line. meanwhile, let's talk about healthcare there was thought and there was a hope for this administration that the -- with the freedom caucus for the most part. two thirds of them agreeing to this new bridge plan that they would have a healthcare vote today or tomorrow. it doesn't look likely because the moderates or the so-called tuesday group are not on board. they feel as though a lot of

4:08 am
because of the undecideds. many undecideds or unannounced. ainsley: they are saying maybe next week? steve: not sailing that. brian: it's aability to. got to change the plan. two things. no one cares about the 100 days. just interesting to talk about. 110 or 120 no one is going to be thinking about testimony the president should not concern himself about. ainsley: he said he's not. brian: you but he is lack of accomplishment bothers him. he is all about winning and all about check the boxes. but, i think one day of euphoria of saying the house passed it is not worth passing a bad plan. so get the plan right. do it right. and then look forward and then we will see. what i think is the most challenging a conservative like justin amass say i can't vote for it moderates saying i can't vote for it a congressman who is conservative like darrell issa in a very liberal district won for hillary said i will commit to it. if you are the president of the united states you will say i don't really know where to go from here. steve: here is the thing.
4:09 am
the stories out there. it's still all in theory because nothing is put on paper yet is millions of people knocked out of healthcare. that's bad politics if you are run are to re-election. also the preexisting condition things, is it in? is it out. depends state to state there is a lot of squishy details that are messy politics. that's why there are so many no votes already and some undecided. ainsley: causing so much division within the republican party a loft republicans are saying get on board y'all figure this out and work together. you have to compromise in some way. many of them are worried about being reelected if they do compromise and put something in the bill that's going to cost some of their constituents a lot of money. i see both sides in this. want to make shiewrst bill is good and affordable. steve: sure. remember when he was running for president, donald trump said everybody is going to get covered. it just makes the way you put this whole thing together much more plaintiff' plaintiff's com. ainsley: democrats were able to come together. they passed a bill like it or not they were able to pass a bill and they were win and that was a big dealing for president obama. obamacare, obamacare.

4:18 am
>> sure, look. there is a lot of complexity in the government today, in the world today there is a tremendous amount of complexity. what we are seeing with president trump is he is trying to simplify the world. that's in the form of tax reform. healthcare, everything really boils down to simplyification. that's why he ran on that ticket. frankly, that's why he has a 97% loyalty rating today because of those initiatives. brian: i think even democrats having a hard time understanding why people aren't we thinking their vote because they are happy with the tone. one thing they are happy with judge neil gorsuch got through. does the fact he got in on reconciliation bother you. >> not at all. that's a big deal. that's the reason i'm giving him an a for this today. his voters are counting on that to happen that was one of the big reasons and one of the big things that the voters were really counting on. it's going to survive beyond the -- behind trump in the white house. this is going to survive for years and years and years. brian: obviously conservatives are happy about that a plus. next, cutting the red tape. i know he talks about it and signs things.
4:19 am
what have see seen tangibly. >> all about complexity risk. i wrote about this in the book how complex his deals were he did. 66 of the small deals. has he a lot of singles and doubles in the first 100 days. larger deals are more complex. healthcare is a great example. giving time. those same pundits were saying the same thing when he built trump tower back in the 1980s and 10s, the pundits are saying the same thing. these are very complex issues. it takes time. is he building out the team. brian: one thing he writes about, too. sometimes the deals you don't make are the best deals. and in the beginning signing off on that healthcare plan perhaps the first time would have given him 48 hours of euphoria and when people looked at it and it wasn't effective it could have been disastrous. next you talk about reestablishing our military might. man, he has put people in charge has he gotten the has been yet. >> is he actually using offense now.
4:20 am
i look to use sports analogy. offense and defense wins games. this is what we are seeing now is a president who understands how to use offense to win. and that's, you know, people have a lot -- hard problem with that but you really have to understand. we need offense to win. brian: whether you have general mattis secretary of defense and h.r. master security advisor and utilize him along with dunford. you are using experts in the right way. and i think that's why he has run over mccain and lindsey graham, two of his biggest critics. >> that's what the trump factor is all about. brian: overall first 100 days you give him. >> i give him an a. keep in mind i tell my five kids perfect attends is fine too. he gets a plus for perfect attendance. he is the hardest working president we have ever seen in the white house. i give him an a plus plus fork work ethic. brian: that i can that lynn -- take that, lincoln, you are being out worked for trump.

that's the number of states working to protection free speech on college campuses public ones, lawmakers in north korea. west virginia, and vold all working on legs to improve the possibility of why have been talking about what's going on. ann coulter invited to speak at learningly. supposed to do that yesterday afternoon or yesterday around lunchtime. they kept changing the time then they changed the date now any dr. cancelled her appearance clearly. she didn't do it we would be talking about it this morning and playing some of those sound bites. unfortunately she was silenced. this is a school where free speech started and they preached tolerance. tolerance. tolerance. yet, they don't want ann coulter to speak there. many are saying it's gauze he had intreed. brian: so glad she was asked about this question. what about law enforcement? if you think there is going to be a problem. you are cops. show up in new york city. they protected black lives
4:26 am
matter as they went to the streets chanting anti-cop slogans. you are in berkeley, you don't like ann coulter or you do love ann coulter. regardless if you are a law enforcement every law enforcement official i know does their job. how is it okay for them to stand down? ainsley: don't want to start going down this path because once you do, the left has control and the left is able to silence the right. that's why so many people on the right have spoken out against this. you can't silence free speech. it's part of the constitution. steve: what you are looking at right there. there were cops in riot gear prepared for possible violence yesterday because there was a demonstration. there were supporters of ann coulter there were detractors of ann coulter as well. at least six people got arrested. ultimately though, laura ingraham. the analyst says this ultimately is what the protesters want. >> chaos and anarchy is where these folks thrive.
4:27 am
and to demonstrate how cowardly most of them really are. they are a bunch of cowards. is that a lot of them walk around in masks. they put either half of their face covered or their whole face covered or they just spout a bunch of cliches and bureau my. there is no real argument. ann coulter would get up there and make logical allergy. you might disagree or agree why immigration laws are important and are actually bipartisan. she would make that argument. really smart students would get up and ask her questions. maybe challenge her. say well i don't really understand that. why couldn't we do it this way? that's what smart kids do. that's what smart students do. they are not interested in learning. they are interested in disruption, chaos, and complete an arcky. steve: and so what we have learned from berkeley is that if there is somebody you don't agree with, you can threaten to protest and in the case of berkeley, be worried and shut things down.
4:28 am
ainsley: yeah. i feel like if this were happening, like you said, if the black lives matter, the police here in new york, they are so strong. i'm sure the police officers all around the country are and in that city as well. so i don't understand why they don't just say all right. we're going to hire a bunch of officers to come and protect ann coulter so that she can't speak out. steve: they have plenty. brian: here is troy warden with campus he was with us here earlier on "fox & friends." time for the law enforcement to help us. >> it's the job of the university police department to ensure the safety of students and attendees at political events and speaking events such as ours. and the fact that the university effectively told the cops to stand down. that's, in effect, silencing our right to free speech. and making. we'll can't move forward with them. you go to university to hear different points of view. what we wanted to do. what the berkeley college
4:29 am
republicans wanted to do was to make people understand where trump supporters are coming from in terms of the immigration debate. and we were absolutely unable to do that. now, students have been deprived of their intellectual right, which is to hear a different point of view. brian: keep your eye on wink. according to the a.p. g.o.p. lawmakers are pushing a bill that would see students at public universities expelled should they disrupt or prevent speeches and force the universities to maintain a neutral stance on speakers who are invited to campuses. if that's passed in wisconsin, they will get into line. do you believe they have to pass a law to allow -- to make universities allow speakers to speak their mind? steve: what is the definition of disrupt? is it just yelling at somebody? because that would be a slippery slope. ainsley: why are people so angry? why is the left so angry at ann coulter they want to go there with molotov cocktails. we have gotten so angry and violent. martin luther king fought for standing up for what you believe in but not being

president wants some plan and maybe the three can't meet? >> one of great things at my 16 years at fox, you can be a republican not necessarily be a conservative. that is the old style way political parties were designed. everybody party had a liberal, moderate, conservative wing. you have to compromise. you can't compromise in public. if you're going to be -- like tip o'neill, they used schmooze and make deals and come forward. i don't know that there is a compromise between those who absolutely oppose socialized medicine in any form, however modest, and those who believe that every american deserves to have the health care that he or she needs. i think that there must be some middle ground that's to the right of where obamacare is but to the left of the freedom caucus that denies preexisting conditions, for example. steve: they have to do something. >> or hiking the health care

differential between elderly sick people and young healthy people by five times. there has got to be a way. ainsley: if you think about it, we read some of the cbo report, it was very extensive, for someone making like $24,000, half the paycheck would have to go to health care. that is it what they were trying to change. they were trying to come to compromise. it is almost making the american people so angry at congress, at those gop members aren't on board. brian: could cost them the house. >> my problem with that, ainsley, how do you go seven 1/2 years and suddenly say, oh, my god, did anyone think of that? ainsley: i agree with that. >> what happens the day after you repeal. steve: during the election, during the campaign, we heard republicans all say we've got a plan. we don't have a plan. we have a lot of plans. turns out they couldn't get on the same page for a plan. >> how can that be, if the republican party is the party of good business, of sound
5:07 am
practices, of fiscal responsibility, how can you go so long and leave people on so dramatically then at the end come up with nothing? ainsley: it does take so long. the president says this is what i want to do. the american people said this is what i want to do. congress takes so long to get anything through. here we are at 100 days, people hope the repeal and replace would happen. they take two weeks off at easter. time off in the summer. when will this happen? >> i think the president should had more modest agenda the first 100 days. i think there were mistakes made. let me say what i think president trump in recent weeks has really steered a course that is much more favorable to his pro prospects and the way people will regard him. what you're beginning to see, for example we saw a clip from rex tillerson. if you have never heard rex tillerson speak, you're thinking oh, exxonmobil, big business, greasy pocket-liner.
