3:03 am
abby: we have big news coming out this morning. president trump in exclusive interview talking about this article that was out in the washington post about former president obama knowing about this russia meddling back in august before the election even happened saying he didn't do anything about it in fear that people might think he might be interfering with the election. here is a little bit of the sound. >> i just heard today for the first time that obama knew about russia a long time before the election and he did nothing about it but nobody wants to talk about that. the cia gave him information on russia a long time before they even, you know, before the election. i hardly see it. it's an amazing thing. to me, in other words, if he had the information, why didn't he to something about it. he should have done something about it but you don't read
3:04 am
that. >> the president is jumping on a fair point because democrats spent this whole time that this was an assault on our democracy, why wasn't -- why is the trump administration not doing more now? fair question. they have to deal with that now. their investigation of that. however, why haven't we asked until now what did the obama administration do in real-time while it was happening if it was an an an assault on our dem ocracy. they had a diseasen different ideas to punch back at putin and at the end they did virtually nothing. abby: what does that say about leadership? what is the right thing to do in that moment if you find out that russia is any way trying to influence the election whether you think your party is winning or not, take the politics out of it and do the right thing if you are commander in chief. >> think of how many questions
3:05 am
could have been answered, think how far we could have come with handling also agenda at this point as oppose to obstructionism president trump he acknowledges has been faced. you guys both have been on dinners. people don't care about russia. people care about taxes, jobs, health care, all of the russia stuff could have been solved months ago. >> you will see a lot of that interview with pete hegseth when they were talking about veterans accountability bill. if people are not taking care of veterans, you have to be able to fire them. only until law did the president sign into law to get that moving. on your point with the obama administration. the obama side of this say, look, if president obama had punched back so far against putin last year, he might have ordered even more hacking and
3:06 am
might have really messed up the election and affected the results which appears did not affect the rules but sitting there and virtually doing nothing, you had former obama officials anonymously telling them, we choked, we jimply choked. the obama administration did not punch back against putin. you hear criticism of donald trump be where has been the review of the obama administration? abby: former obama official on fox news and here is what she said at the time. >> i do think that hindsight 20/20 reasonable people disagree that we should have done more. i will grant people that we were worried about looking into partisan, we were worried legitimately about provoking the russians to do even more and try to change vote tallies. abby: i go back to the point when you are running the country
3:07 am
and when you are in power you have to put politics aside and honest about what you're dealing with and that is what's causing a lot of confusion here. when you look back at eight years, how much was covered and how much was missed. >> i was on with martha last night and i look back at president obama's last news conference of 2016 and he said there that back in september at a summit on sidelines he told putin to cut it out. >> okay. that does it. >> hey, cut it out. >> you have to her credit for admitting the mistake. with that said, the tone of that, america is passive. we are not passive, we set the world agenda. that is what america does and i don't think we can be pass i
3:08 am
have in anyway, shape or form, passiveness with regard to people like vladimir putin and over there in north korea with that guy, that shows weakness. abby: you were mentioning why there were not more questions asked about the russian meddling with the obama administration. the same questions are being asked why are we not investigating attorney general loretta lynch and now senate committee are taking action and say we have to pay more attention to this. you think about the tarmac meeting with former president bill clinton. >> they were talking about golf and grandchildren. abby: of course. >> james comey testified, remember, when everyone was expecting comey is going to come out and it's going to be all about bashing donald trump. pull back on some of the story but on top of that, he also revealed, remember, in the senate testimony that loretta lynch demand that had he not call the hillary clinton e-mail investigation an investigation,
3:09 am
call it a matter. emails that went back and forth and the senate judiciary committee says we want those documents an we want to get some answers and you put this part of it together as we were talking about what did the obama administration to push back against putin. this russia investigation has focused on the trump investigation. they are the ones that have to deal with the allegations that there was collusion. so far no evidence that there was collusion but they're dealing with that, but now my point is that this investigation is flipping around a little bit and all of a sudden on two different tracks, loretta lynch and president obama, what did they do last year? abby: you wonder what the coverage is going to be about those questions, about the obama years, about the attorney general loretta lynch investigation. my sense is you're not going to get the same coverage. take a look at this, for example, we dug up facts, our wonderful producers, abc last night, 20 second, nbc news no coverage at all, cbs, no coverage at all. none, zero.
3:10 am
>> she's the former attorney general. >> there's e-mail circulating right now that based upon those numbers, there's no coverage of it. this could be explosive document with regard to loretta lynch but nobody is talking about it. this is something that we need to monitor, we are here to bring this information to you and let you go decide. abby: former republican congressman and he was on our air yesterday and he said that this investigation, he said this should close all the russia investigation stuff. here is what he said. >> this is going to be the end of the investigation of the trump administration at least it should be, what this report comes out and shows is number one that the head of our intelligence community, they believe that the russians actions were not materially going to impact voter decisions as they approach election day. number two, they clearly state that the russians were not able to do any voter tabulation,
3:11 am
manipulation on election day and number three, as i have stated before, there's no collusion, why investigate donald trump and his campaign anymore? that is over. >> well, that might be wishful thinking. there's been no evidence of collision. that's where this started. now you see this investigation morphing into all stuff obama related. by the end of both sides, wait a second, started as alleged collusion, might find something else. abby: i think the american people are saying, have the investigation but let's finish this investigation and focus on things that actually matter to us in our daily lives. we want to bring you this morning with john podesta who is now front and center of the russian investigation. the former hillary clinton campaign manager will be interviewed by the house intelligence committee in the coming days about the kremlin's alleged involvement in the election.
3:12 am
you my call that podesta e-mail account was hacked and revealing numerous democratic scandals. a democrat is out of a job after discombusting comments about wounded gop congressman steve scalise was leaked to public. listen. >> his whole job is to get people, convince republicans to kick people off of health care. [inaudible conversations] >> i'm glad that he got shot. >> what are you saying it to us for? >> say something. >> why are you telling us for? abby: oh, my goodness. the former cochair for the democratic technology committee. his comments were taken out of context. how many times are we going to hear that it was taken out of context? that was terrible. more information about steve ca his, out of intensive care and
3:13 am
in good condition. scalise were among five people that were injured at baseball practice. that's good news. >> coming up, lawmakers promise today clean up rhetoric on capitol hill, then hillary clinton forgets this. forget death panels, if republicans pass this bill, they are the death party. really? >> one college professor says offo warmbier got what he deserved. what? the growing outrage just ahead having moderate to severe

plaque psoriasis is not always easy. it's a long-distance run. and you have the determination to keep going. humira has a proven track record of being prescribed for nearly 10 years. humira works inside the body to target and help block a specific source of inflammation that contributes to symptoms. in clinical trials, most adults taking humira were clear or almost clear and many saw 75% and even 90% clearance in just four months. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal, infections and cancers, including lymphoma have happened as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms, or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. join over 250,000 people who have chosen humira.

ask about the #1 prescribed biologic by dermatologists. humira & go. dearthere's no other way to say this. it's over. i've found a permanent escape from monotony. together, we are perfectly balanced. our senses awake. our hearts racing as one. i know this is sudden, but they say...if you love something set it free. see you around, giulia but i keep it growing by making every dollar count. that's why i have the spark cash card from capital one. with it, i earn unlimited 2% cash back on all of my purchasing. and that unlimited 2% cash back from spark means thousands of dollars each year going back into my business...

3:17 am
if you have diabetes and burning, shooting pain in your feet or hands... step on up and talk to your doctor today. abby: welcome back a day after president obama hit republicans with health care. >> forget death panels if republicans pass the bill. they are the death party and she's not the only outraged democrat. >> these cuts are blood money. people will die. let's be very clear. senate republicans are paying for tax cuts for the wealthy with american lives. >> that's pretty subtle. is this type of talk really necessary? here to act is kristin.
3:18 am
>> this is extreme rhetoric that's causing democrats to lose election and credibility. democrats have made it very clear that number one priority right now is to obstruct donald trump and the republican's legislative agenda. they don't really seem to be doing a whole lot to work for the american people and it's unfortunate because after the congressional shooting there seemed to be a call for unity on both sides of the aisle and people seemed to grow that we should tone town the partisan rhetoric. as soon as the senate republicans introduce the bill, the unity went out of the window. abby: there is on the other side, though, frustration among the american people that want to do away with obamacare that have been hurt by it and promised for eight, nine years now that when republicans have the power, they will fix it, they will make it better and here we are still. there doesn't seem to be an agreement, there doesn't seem to be enough votes to get something better passed.
3:19 am
>> i think the role road block is those senate democrats who have refused to do anything. they refuse to work with republicans and i think the special elections in georgia and south carolina are proof that this obstruction agenda is not working. it's not a message that resinates with the american people and unless the democrats get a real unifying message and they all get on the same passenger and create some sort of positive message for their voters, i think 2018 is going to be a really ugly election for them. >> i thought neil cavuto did a great job in pointing on rhetoric, people with preexisting conditions are covered in new bill, children can stay on parents' plan and he talked about the word doubling premiums, shrinking coverage, limiting insurance, that's part of obamacare, that is actually mean. that is not what this new bill does. >> right, i think when they use this kind of rhetoric causes
3:20 am
people to roll eyes and not even listen, constant pounding of the drum saying that millions of americans are going to tie because of republicans is absurd and the only people that buy that is the far left and some poll incomes the media, like an echo chamber of this rhetoric and it does nobody any favors and at the end of the day, nothing is getting done. so we need more action and we need more rhetoric on both sides of the aisle, i think, that we can work together and actually make some progress happen here. >> government certainly has gone wild. appreciate it. >> thanks, guys. >> the white house cutting back untelevised briefings, mainstream media not happy about it. >> maybe i'm old-fashion, brook, but i think that the white house of the united states of america should have these questions answered on camera. they're just doing a disservice to the people of this country. >> well, do the american people really care, molly to discuss next. >> one man is making a big statement to support the
3:21 am
president by a billboard telling abc news to get over russia and that man is going to join us live next it's ok that everybody ignores me when i drive. it's fine. because i get a safe driving bonus check every six months i'm accident free. because i don't use my cellphone when i'm driving. even though my family does, and leaves me all alone. here's something else... i don't share it with mom. i don't. right, mom? i have a brand new putter you don't even know about! it's awesome. safe driving bonus checks, only from allstate. sometimes i leave the seat up on purpose. switching to allstate is worth it.

if you have moderate to severe ulcerative colitis or crohn's, and your symptoms have left you with the same view, it may be time for a different perspective. if other treatments haven't worked well enough, ask your doctor about entyvio, the only biologic developed and approved just for uc and crohn's. entyvio works by focusing right in the gi-tract to help control damaging inflammation and is clinically proven to begin helping many patients achieve both symptom relief as well as remission. infusion and serious allergic reactions can happen during or after treatment. entyvio may increase risk of infection, which can be serious. while not reported with entyvio, pml, a rare, serious brain infection caused by a virus may be possible. tell your doctor if you have an infection, experience frequent infections, or have flu-like symptoms, or sores.

liver problems can occur with entyvio. if your uc or crohn's medication isn't working for you, ask your gastroenterologist about entyvio. entyvio. relief and remission within reach.

arrested. and more violent government protest in venezuela killing at least 75 people. demonstrators lighting trucks on fire and knocking over fences rallying against the socialist government there. nearly one thousand people have been injured in recent months. ed and abby over to you. abby: the white house is cutting back on televised briefings and many in the media are not having it. >> i think that the white house for the united states of america should have these questions answered on camera. they're just doing a disservice to the people of this country and i don't want to sound like i'm getting on my soap box, that wouldn't be tolerated at city council meetings or at a governor's office. we have a representative of the united states saying you can't cover it that way. it's like we are covering bad reality television is what it feels like now. abby: is this a disservice for the american people or do they even care. >> here to way in molly, fox
3:26 am
news contributor, i wonder, molly, what you think of this and i have been a colleague of jim acosta, a friend of his and respect his work but was tweeting this week that comparing the white house to the soviet union and in that last clip there is saying that this is bad reality tv. this really seems to be veering into opinion instead of sticking to the facts. >> right, the white house does have an obligation to inform americans about what it's doing. that does not mean that there's a constitutional requirement for daily televised briefings of this nature and what's bad about the briefings is they really evolved into a sort of spectacle and you have white house spokes people doing unbelievable amounts of denial and we are not getting a lot of information out of that. >> molly, hayer you, i want to bring in abbey and i was in the room and i hear from viewers,
3:27 am
there's leading questions, it's got-you questions. i was in that room and dana parino got a lot got-you questions. why can't the white house do that? >> they can do it and faced a lot from the media but i just want to emphasize that it's not that you need to have these briefings be televised and it's not that there won't be televised briefings. when the media responds to limitations, they need to give a balance in perspective as well. reporters tend to think that they are important and need to be seen on television. what they need to do is do a good job getting the information and translating to the american people and there's many ways that you can do that. abby: i have traveled around the country actually spoken to the american people, the people that matter most and i hear so often that they just feel like the media has not given the benefit of the doubt, it's not been fair coverage. i think the question here is are
3:28 am
they going to care that we no longer are able to see the press briefings, if you think about the questions that are asked. if the american people ask questions, they wouldn't be the questions that are asked. >> there's some transparency issues where the white house has been bad. they don't release visitor logs which is a helpful way of who has access to the president and the white house. but the media have so spoiled their relationship with the american public that i don't think people care when there are access issues or problems and so what would be really in everybody's best interest to have a little bit more balance, calm, fairness in how we are reporting on this presidency so that american people do understand the need to have a good relationship with the press and the white house. at this point, if it's a war between the press and the white house, the press is on the bad side because people don't care anymore. >> i suspect the war is going to continue longer. they've been fired up on both sides. abby: mollie, good to have you.

great and empowering feeling. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. chantix reduced my urge to smoke. when you try to quit smoking, with or without chantix, you may have nicotine withdrawal symptoms. some people had changes in behavior or thinking, aggression, hostility, agitation, depressed mood or suicidal thoughts or actions with chantix. serious side effects may include seizures, new or worse heart or blood vessel problems, sleepwalking or allergic and skin reactions which can be life-threatening. stop chantix and get help right away if you have any of these. tell your healthcare provider if you've had depression or other mental health problems. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. the most common side effect is nausea. i don't even think about cigarettes anymore. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. many insurance plans cover chantix for a low or $0 copay.

cetera. the leader is partly responsible for the message but what happened is georgia, the reason georgia was different was because the republicans ran ossoff, they attached him to her and it worked. there was a big response to that. nancy pelosi has been good at raising money. ossoff24000000 bucks a lot from her area, san francisco in northern california but their finding also clearly that money is not enough, that the message that the direction of the party matters and she's a part of that or at least that position is a part of that. abby: adrienne, you have the midterms coming up, huge elections for both republicans and democrats, i'm sure it's on your mind on the fact that democrats have to start winning races. when you think of nancy pelosi stha the leader you want leading the party? >> first of all, nancy pelosi is one of the most effective democratic leaders that we've ever had in the party. to your point, it's very important that we recite as
3:47 am
democrats candidates who fit the profile in the district. i work for rahm emmanuel during the 2005-2006 when democrats took back the house and one of the things we did effectively is we recruited conservative democrats who fit the profile of the districts and that's how we took back the house and that's how we want some of the red and purple districts in the country. as we rebelled as a party it's very important that we recruit candidates this fit the profiles in the districts so we can take back the house. >> rebuild the party, the party has been destroyed effectively and it's more than just nancy pelosi, it's the overall messaging. pérez and ellison are part of that problem. this is a large ranging problematic dynamic for them and beyond pelosi, unless they realize that, nothing is going to change. abby: how quickly can you do that when you don't have any new faces, any new messaging within the democratic party? >> i don't think they are any part of the problem, they are actually part of the solution in
3:48 am
terms of rebuilding the party and getting us back on track. abby: as you have seen the reports, there's clearly concern about among member of house dental contracts that have publicly expressed concerned about nancy pelosi and leadership, clearly there's concern there. >> look, first of all, democrats need to stop complaining and focus on rebuilding and putting this resistance to work for the greater good of the party and country. look, we are a big-ten party, we have diversities and opinions and moving -- >> as long as there's an attitude that there's resistance, you're not a big tent party and you're seeing that that's not working. >> i continue disagree more. >> well, we will find out, keep going, girl, let's going, liberal. >> this is a great debate, ladies, we will leave it right there. thanks for being with us. abby: coming up a former attorney general now under investigation, the senate is ready to look into loretta lynch e-mail probe.

>> instead today's teens are enrolled in summer school rather than working. >> good morning. >> what's behind all of this? >> area big part of their participants, 45 to 55 year's old, a lot of their parents had to work from 15 to 20 year's old and they feel like they lost a small portion of their childhood. kids are growing faster than ever thanks to instagram and facebook and parents are trying to hold on childhood for the kids and aren't pushing them in workforce. abby: those summer jobs teach you so much more of the real word than any studies ever will. we all worked summer jobs and all can relate to that, what are the tips of working a summer job? >> treat any job as if it was a career and when you think about a job whether you're scraping a grill or flipping burgers or cleaning toilets, it's really difficult to think through towards the end of the day. you think of this as a long-term goal and something that's et

ising you up for success in the long-term is more palatable. i don't know how that prepared him for this show, if he were on the couch he would have a reason. >> that does bring you to the pay, it's not a high-paying job. >> so crucial that you mention that, one of the other things that you go into is time management. the summer that i was working as a waiter that you saw, by the way it's not me, that's joe, very confusing, but i was doing that and working at my dad's office and i was contemplating and doing an internship at a place over in the city i'm not going to say where, another tv station and that's the crucial part of time management that you have to do. there's joe and the owner of the restaurant. i'm no where in the picture. summer of '97.
3:55 am
the time management is a crucial thing that you need to do in the real world. >> it's huge. you have to work to earn that. brings us to the fact that in the real world you have to eastern everything you have. there are no participation trophies. you only achieve that which you worked hard to achieve. abby: my first real job was intern at our local station in salt lake city, utah, there's a picture of one to have internships, my job was working for good things utah, it was the morning program. i would wash cooking sections and open their mail. i loved every single minute because i loved television. i knew that that was the path that i wanted to go on and taught me responsibility. >> absolutely. if you think about the education system these days too, parents will complain if the kids aren't pushed through the system. you're paying 40 or $50,000 a year, the education system wants to move you through that. in the real world if you're not

4:03 am
russia a long time before they even, you know, before the election, and i hardly see it. it's an amazing thing. to me, you know, in other words the question is if he had the information, why didn't he do something about it, he should have done something about it, but you don't read that. it's quite sad. abby: governor it's a great question, why are we just hearing about this now? >> because hillary clinton didn't win the election and they've got to find an excuse. let me give you insight that will put this in frame, the fact that there was not one election official in any of the 50 states or counties in america that were told during the election process be ware, we think the russians are trying to hack into the elections and may try to get into your voting tabulations, not one anywhere in the country. if there was really scolding alarm, that something terrible was about to happen in the hands of the election then the real
4:04 am
problem is a derelict, obama administration that didn't tell anybody that could have taken safeguard to try to prevent it. here is the fact, nothing happened that affected the election. but when the election was over, they needed a way to explain how in the world did we lose. so that's why this narrative has been invented and it is really, i think, des graceful -- disgraceful and it's the obama administration who if they knew it and didn't take any action other than the president saying cut it out, then that is irresponsible. >> do you think they were sitting on it because to your point the obama white house thought this might be out there but hillary is going to win anyway so let's keep it quiet, can you back that up, do you think that's what they were doing? >> they had no thoughts that
4:05 am
donald trump was going to win the election. that was largely because he gave them their -- his password. so that really wasn't so much a hack as it was just scooping up something that was laying on the ground. i just feel that it's very important that the average american understand that this whole idea of russian hacking as if it's some amazing thing that the russians are trying to do, here is a news flash, i will guaranty you that u.s. intelligence agencies are trying to hack into every foreign government, software system, computer system and mainframe that exists on earth and for us to pretend that this idea of trying to get intelligence only goes one way, you have to be pretty naive to think that. abby: this exclusive interviews with own pete hegseth tomorrow here on "fox & friends" weekend. you don't want to miss that. >> how far do you think this

will go, of course political interference in clinton investigation is what the topic is being discussed right now, the e-mail that's floating around out there could be very, very incriminating so you have experience in this, how far does this go, how far do you think it goes? >> todd, this is really the investigation that has some merit because you have a sitting attorney general telling an fbi director don't call this an investigation, in other words, lie about it and remarkably he did so he doesn't call an investigation, later he testifies under oath that it made him queasy. you don't need a bottle of tums, you needed to be fired a long time ago for going into that charade. cha did loretta lynch talk about with bubba clinton and we don't know because it was a private conversation with all the aides scrambled out and abbeyi know knows this, that never happens
4:07 am
with the level of a sitting attorney general and former president, you have one of the aides taking notes, making sure if there's some commitment made, that somebody is remembering what that is, the fact that everybody was moved off the airplane except the two principals say what they were talking about was something they didn't want anybody else to ever know about. that is the basis of real investigation. donald trump was not elected to anything during the run-up to the election and so all of these, you know, breathless democrats talk about how we have to get to the bottom it, good, get to the bottom of it, find out what happened on the airplane, find out why loretta lynch told comey not to call it an investigation. abby: i want to get your thoughts on health care because we heard from a number of them that says this i think gob to end of the world. former president obama calling this a mean bill and hillary clinton tweeted this, forget death panel, if republicans pass this bill, they the death party
4:08 am
incident governor, your thoughts on this? >> this is you politics gets silly, the average american is not so stupid to honestly think that either of the parties, let's be fair, democrats don't want to kill anybody, they don't design to say, that will kill off republicans, they just don't and republicans don't design bills that will kill off americans, they just don't, when rhetoric goes to that level, i think it makes the parties look silly, it sort of reveals they don't have an argument, they can't discuss the merits of a piece of legislation or proposal so they are reduced to the most childish form of political rhetoric which is to say you're a bad person, you're going to kill somebody. it's so over the top. >> mitch mcconnell's writing this bill in secret, we don't know the details, governor, we don't know what's in the bill. then he release it is bill within ten minutes, we know what's in the bill, it's going to kill people. they didn't even read the bill and they had talking point
4:09 am
already. we don't know what's in the bill and then it's going to kill people, now we know everything in that bill. >> amazing thing was chuck schumer carefully crafted written speech that he delivered within minutes of the release before he would have had time to read the 142-page bill but he already had -- i think the guy is claire boyant because the only explanation that you have is chuck schumer is clairboyant or he's spying on the republicans and he was able to get advanced copy and hours before practiced thoughtful speech saying how the republicans were out to kill people. it's just absurd. political theater and the curtain needs to come down on this theater because the play is getting tiresome. >> you go way back to the clint opens, you know the clintons, is this just hillary clinton scraping the bottom of the barrel at this point months after she lost the election? >> i think hillary has been able to blame everyone in america for
4:10 am
her loss except the one person she looks at in the mirror every morning and that's the person she can't just face and say, you know what, it was my responsibility to win the election and i failed and i didn't win. one of the things that every candidate has got to do when you run for office, it's not jury staff, it's not your team, it's not your consultants, it's not your ad people, it's not the donors, it's not the party, it's not the people being stupid, at some point you have to say for reasons i don't understand it, maybe i thought they were wrong, the people voted for somebody else and i have to suck it up and accept it. some day i hope she can come to that but she hasn't yet. it's still a blaming game. abby: you are a class act, we love you having you on the show. go have a great breakfast in nashville, they have amazing biscuits. >> yes, indeed. abby: turning to other headlines, 140 people likely with -- buried in rubble, so far

4:18 am
file haven't figured out that on the other side you guys love her being in charge, wouldn't that say that they need to change? >> yeah, but i think the democrats' problem is that the party really has gone very far left. think of tom pérez, head of dnc, from my perspective as a republican he's a pretty radical left guy. but when he goes and gives speeches he gets booed because he's not far enough left, he's not progressive liberal, socialist enough. so i think that underscores how far left the tem critic party has gone and i'm coming from wisconsin. so san francisco value that is have lost a state like wisconsin or a district like mine that used to be democrat, this is dark blue stuff and they lost because democrats are fighting over bathrooms and republicans are fighting for wages an upper mobility and actual families and i think as long as the party keeps the resist movement wanting to talk about russia, russia and not jobs in the economy and nancy pelosi is still a leader republicans are
4:19 am
going to continue to win. >> you have the responsibility to govern and you can say san francisco values and the democrats are moving far left, but at tend of the day and at the end of this year, the end of the congress heading to midterms of 2018, you and your colleagues in both chambers will have work with democrats in one way one would assume because you can't jam everything as you are seeing, you will have to get democrat votes, you have to pick up the pieces and get stuff done? >> once you drill through leadership and you get with guys like time ryan, you can find partners to work with it. they're not radical democrats and you find points of agreement. you do that behind closed doors. the problem really isn't in the house. in the house we passed a lot of legislation. what has to happen the senate has to be able to come together and in the senate it's not a problem between republicans an democrats, we have internal republican problems as we look
4:20 am
as health care, how do you get 50 to 51 republican senators in the same page to pass health care reform. that's not a democrat problem. that's an internal republican problem. tax reform is a republican issue that we have to get through not just in the house but we will but can the senate pass a tax reform bill. republicans are going to act together legislatively and we can do that around the democrat party. >> quickly, five seconds, pelosi notwithstanding, what do you want to see on the other side of the aisle to bring nation together as minority leader? >> i would take tim ryan, modern democrat. >> thank you very much. >> have a good morning. >> thanks. coming up one state democrat is out of a job for this disgusting statement about steve scalise. >> i'm glad he got shot. i'm glad he got shot. i'm not going to say that in public. >> shot, could the rhetoric from the left go any lower? >> the mainstream media has been

>> there's no picture of your husband? abby: i blame my husband. let's bring in lee carter. what was your first job? >> i worked at a deli where my niece now works. abby: making sandwiches. >> i make really good sandwiches. abby: don't say that on here because we will make you follow through. >> on the broil, on the bread or on the side? >> on the bread. jersey delis beat new york delis100%. abby: fighting words. [laughter] ed e we will talk about that in another segment. big one in iowa this week and after the malaise in washington, he seemed to be back in his element. >> he sure did. voters love when he goes back to the people, his supporters need
4:36 am
these kind of rallies and he gets as much energy as they do. abby: let's take a listen. >> i was elected to receiver the citizens of iowa and pennsylvania and ohio and michigan and wisconsin and florida and all 50 states and all 320 million american citizens. lee: you can see there republicans off the charts, you couldn't see it at times. they gave it an a plus, independent a b and democrats lower there as a d minus but this is trump in his element and independent are so critical for him. >> should he to more of this? lee: absolutely. i would expect him to see him once a week because he resinates with his base. abby: total control and here is another part of that where he's talking about democrats and republicans coming together. >> it would be a beautiful,
4:37 am
beautiful thing if we could get together as two parties that love our country and come up with that great health care and great tax deal for our people and tax reform. and infrastructure and other things. lee: absolutely where he shines, even democrats gave it a c which suggests to me that we have more than a resist movement. there are democrats that say, let's do this. abby: let's actually work together. who doesn't want that? lee: i can't imagine. ed: a lot of people in the mainstream media blew that off, the polls are showing that there are not silent voters. take a look at this new poll, harvard harris poll on president's job approval, 48% approve, 52% disapprove. cnn has a poll about job
4:38 am
approval ratings suggesting that they're at a new low. does this matter this early in the presidency? have people gotten enough measure of him or do they need a little bit more time to really make sense about how this first year is going? lee: i think that donald trump throughout the whole campaign whether it was primary or general election underperformed in the polls. somewhere 5 and 10 points depending on the state. it's important that we take a look at who you're talking to, you're talking to somebody who is a likely voter or average american who might not vote at all and so i think there's a lot of things going on here. i also think you have to look at the methodology. a telephone poll is very dated. when i worked with corporate clients i would never do telephone poll. i think that's why we are able to see with the dials such a different response with polling because you're measuring people visceral response. the thing is it is on a day by day basis. you can imagine if you were
4:39 am
polling your spouse, you might say, today he didn't do what i asked him to do, he went to the grocery store and came with all the wrong things and tomorrow he's going make a great reservation for us and i'm going to give him a better poll. it's very moment to moment. abby: it's so true. lee: the very important thing is let's see what happens with tax reform, let's see what happens with health care f he's able to drive that agenda, keep things moving, then we will see a big bump in the polls, right now it's pretty flat and i think it's the way it's going to be with him because i don't think he's really that concerned with reaching out to people who aren't necessarily his base until he start getting things done. abby: highest he'll been there is zero coverage of that poll when it came out. the silent voter that we talked about in the election, you wonder if that plays a roll in the polls, if there's such a thing of voters in the poll. lee: there's no question. there's a lot of pressure on people to say, societal pressure
4:40 am
is not to say i'm a trump supporter, that says something, according to mainstream media, according to a lot of folks it's not the cool thing to do. when i spoke to voters throughout the election as we were getting closer and closer who said i would not say it out loud because my spouse and i would have such huge fights, if they knew they i was a trump supporter, they would go to the other side. >> we will put sandwich orders. abby: when you come back, you are making us sandwiches. >> great to be here. abby: we are following another mainstream media leak slamming gop comparing to al-qaeda. trump and the republicans want to pass a bill that will kill more americans than isis will ever dream about. that tweet making major back lsh and so far zero apology.

[laughter] >> it's going to pass pretty quickly. it's not a wash-out of your day really for anybody in the country. take a look at the map. we have big storms moving across northeast this morning and parts across texas and part of central coast. we saw a lot of rain. this is all still some of the moisture from tropical cindy. we will see rain showers this morning and pull out of here and see shun shine, a really nice day and tomorrow will be spectacular.

>> leading up to this week special election in georgia the mainstream media was absolutely certain that jon ossoff had a great chance to defeating karen handel. however, there was one problem with that, they very very much wrong. here to weigh in political analyst amy holmes. amy, you saw headlines like jon ossoff, the making of a georgia congressman. they completely missed the boat, they are 0-5. >> 0 for 4. when it comes to the media ossoff, he didn't get close, 5-point spread when the
4:48 am
republican that did win. this isn't the first headline that the media has gotten wrong starting inauguration day night, todd. cnn reported that nancy sinatra was upset that they were dancing with my way, that's not true, cnn, why do you lie. >> when president trump was named president, elected president, the economy was suppose to tank and stock markets in disarray, however, that's not necessarily the case, stock markets have hit record highs. >> it's been doing well and public optimism is turning around from the obama years but we saw a similar thing with what happened to brexit, the british stock market will plument, what i will point out in all of the examples, the head liernes, they match the media's own preconception which is always against conservatives, republicans and in particularly president trump. >> like you said, it's not just their bias by the information they are putting out there but
4:49 am
it's completely incorrect. >> it's not just how they cover the news but what they cover. 56% of the public want the media and congress to move on from the russia story. >> let's move on from another topic. trump baffles u.s. attorneys with sudden mass firing, et cetera, et cetera. isn't this just a normal way that you transition from the administration? >> yes, previous presidents have fired their u.s. attorneys, bill clinton when he was president and first became he fired them all in one day. i wonder is it the youth of the reporters that are reporting on these stories or is it their bias, i think it's a little bit of both but also another story that was in the washington post that was completely wrong that said that there was mass resignations of state department, as it turns out, as it's customary, four or five people, they put in resignations which were accepted. >> let's not forget about the communications' department, sean spicer has been fired 47,000
4:50 am
times so far but this week gets elevated for a higher post. >> steve bannon. >> if you guys can flip prompter for me for a second. it's specifically regarding to trump, crush on putin and other signs and -- >> bromance. the trump-putin bromance, trump did say complementary things about the russian president on the campaign trail and we have seen military action in syria and right now the u.s. and russia are at loggerheads. that didn't turn out to be true. >> it's not like the president is cheering on russia here, we are going after russia. thanks so much. >> todd, thank you too much. todd: former attorney general loretta lynch under investigation, the senate investigating whether she interfered in probe.

5:02 am
i wonder what you think of this, all of a sudden we are hearing the senate judiciary committee is dealing deep and figuring what happened on that tarmac with bill clinton but when james comey came to testify, you know more than anyone because you have been in the middle of these investigations trying to get of truth for the american people james comey didn't just talk about donald trump is concerned about how the retta lynch handled the email investigation. >> that sparked a whole series of eventss mister comey engaged in and wouldn't have done otherwise because he was very concerned about this. the inspector general michael horowitz at the department of justice has also been diving into that. i expect the first part of next year will see comprehensive report on that but to have
5:03 am
senator grassley of the senate judiciary committee also going after this is a pivotal moment and if democrats are going to be fair and balanced about this they should be equally concerned what loretta lynch did or didn't do in her role as attorney general. >> a new report coming out that obama knew about this russian meddling all the way back in august before the election even happened so we sat down with an exclusive interview with donald trump that will air tomorrow morning but here's what he said. >> i heard today for the first time that obama knew about russia before the election and did nothing about it. the cia gave him information on russia a long time before the election and i hardly see it. an amazing thing. the question is if you have information why didn't he do something? he should have done something
5:04 am
about it. it is quite that. >> if you are commander-in-chief you do what is right for the country, you don't play politics every moment of the day and in this situation you would think the president would stand up and do what was right for the american people. >> this russia dust up the democrats keep kicking dirt on to create more smoke, this happened during barack obama's watch, he was president of the united states and trey got a got out of jay johnson, the homeland security secretary, the homeland security department tried to coming and help the democrats and democrats refused their help y with the victim of the crime not let law enforcement help them, what was going on doesn't make sense. >> why is this the first we are hearing about it. we talk about this russia investigation for months and
5:05 am
that is a frustration among the american people, why were not talking about the issues that impact our lives that highlight that, 64% say coverage of the investigation is hurting the country, 60% say time to move on to other issues, 40% to stay on this russia stuff. you are on capitol hill dealing with this day in and day out, what is your sense? >> the only thing in the democrats playbook is let's talk about russia but time after time we hear obama era officials at the top of the food chain say there is no collusion. the russians and others trying to penetrate our system and dive into the election, you i think so and do we need to make sure we are worried about and making sure that 2018 and 2020s no other hacks and i ask who wants to do a lot of things online, we got to make sure those intelligence agencies are
5:06 am
fighting back against this and are not penetrating into our system. >> we are approaching the year mark on all of this russia stuff. it is fascinating. let me jump in a moment. you were very vocal in the weeks following the steve scully shooting about threats you had received individually to your office and now in nebraska we have an individual, former democratic visual who comes out and says he wished steve scully's had died. we will play a soundbite and get your reaction? >> his job is to kick people off their healthcare. i am not going to -- >> what are you saying it to us for, what are you telling us for? >> that has got me so fired up because that is not american. that is not how we operate but as an individual on the receiving end of some threats how did you respond? >> people i know in nebraska are
5:07 am
loving, patriotic people, that person is such an outlier, he is being called out, he needs psychiatric help. steve scully's is a great human being and these are friends and neighbors, members who serve in congress and the senate are human beings and when these threats come, we have to take him seriously. i worry prosecutors are not prosecuting these cases, law enforcement is not looking at them as deeply as they need to be but this particular person needs to be called out and shown for what he is, that hatred is so disgusting. >> the threats get worse, when you have been in the house a number of years have you seen an escalation when it comes to this nasty political rhetoric and personal threat you and many others have received? >> i saw it when donald trump
5:08 am
was sworn in as president of the united states, there is something on the far left that went over the top because the death threats, the number of file personal attacks skyrocketed and just because they are coming in great quantity doesn't mean law enforcement and prosecutors shouldn't be pursuing them, they need to be called what they are and there are sick individuals and one took action and we need to make sure they are prosecuted so they don't take action in their own communities. >> extreme rhetoric, this health care bill should be about substance, policy, you had the threat saying republicans want to throw granny off the cliff, now elizabeth warren things the senate bill is below money, hillary clinton saying the republicans are the death party, extreme rhetoric. you can get down in the mud and throw some rhetoric back at them or republicans can get their sleeves up and get to work after making these promises, several election cycles in a row, repeal and replace obamacare. how do you block out that
5:09 am
nonsense and actually get the party together? it looks pretty split in terms of getting this through the senate? >> love it when the democrats have their graphics ready and minutes after the bill is introduced they have come to the conclusion -- almost laughable, they haven't even read the bill. terribly complicated situation but republicans promised to repeal and replace obamacare, it is an absolute disarray, failing the american people and because it is imploding we have to find solutions to that and that is what we are trying to do, different people have different opinions, that is how it happens in washington dc, in some way we will get it -- >> and it is not the best one. >> democrats took a long time and put out their bill and passed it in less than 24 hours, here it has the light of day, we have plenty of time to read and
5:10 am
digest it, some other opinions and amendments and that is the way it is supposed to happen. and what we have to do. >> thank you for sharing your insight with us. >> 140 people buried under rubble. it wiped out a mountainside in western china. two people have been found alive in that grave, took out 46, heavy rain to blame for that. john podesta at the center of the russia investigation, hillary clinton campaign manager interviewed by the house intelligence committee about the kremlin's alleged involvement in the election. you may recall the email account was hacked during the campaign of the content for wikileaks revealing numerous democratic

people hate about politics is how democrats handle their response to this bill, they didn't even read it before they had their talking points. that says it all. >> a lot about the democrats, people are suffering across the country and look at the evolution of this. they passed it 30,000 pages of legislation without reading it, they said you could keep your doctor, you can keep your healthcare plan, they said it would be affordable, none of that has been true and now premiums have doubled across the country, people are suffering and democrats sitting on their hands when they created this problem, republicans working together, it is unfortunate they have obstructed every step of the way and are not putting the american people first. >> democrats are upset about this, former president barack obama saying the bill is just plain mean, hillary clinton
5:18 am
responded, forget death panels, they pass this bill, they are the death party. a lot of it is instilling fear in the american people, without understanding what is the bill. >> over the top with what you said with hillary clinton, it is over-the-top, i sat next to a woman who has small business, insurance was canceled, $200 a month, her husband had to have an emergency heart put in, $10,000 out-of-pocket, the first $10,000, catastrophic to come up with that type of money. this is what obamacare was doing across the country and democrats are not recognizing they need to leave, it is a failure and republicans are coming to rescue even though democrats put it in

those seeking admission into our country must be able to support themselves eventually and should not use welfare for period of at least five years. >> you might say that sounds extreme, it will never win democrat support but it has been done before under the clinton administration. joining us to debate dan stein, journalist and radio talkshow host jim mil, i heard this before, why did we not have such anger and vitriol toward president clinton when he came up with this? >> bill clinton understood the center of the issue and the democratic party was very different. what we have now is collective stupid 24/7 but back then bill clinton understood the dynamics of the issue. republicans to congress in 1994, first time in my lifetime. one of the first priorities,

here so they don't have to worry. >> and bring their families, immigrants -- it is not one loan person, people come to this country and have families while they are here, they bring family members over and to not recognize a sizable proportion of those who receive welfare benefits -- you can't just say this immigrant has a job, has 5 kids. >> it goes back to massachusetts bay, 1685. federal law in 1917, if you are likely to become a public charge, need welfare, use welfare based on your education, assets, income, you can't come in unless you have a sponsor guaranteeing you -- that law, donald trump signal he would start enforcing the public charge and he is going to start enforcing immigrants come here or starts applying for benefits,
5:29 am
they will be deported based on the public charge but end the solution is reduce immigration, improve the skills composition by mandating postgraduate degree, technical education, much lower levels, that is what trump promised and he needs to fulfill his campaign promises before starting a new track of legislative initiatives. >> thank you for being with us this morning. coming up we sort of choked, what one obama administration official says, about the response to russian hacking. why did they drop the ball? that is next. donald trump calls democrats the, quote, party of resistance which our next guest says now is time to push democrats into the political wilderness. ♪

6:03 am
and remarkably, he did. what did loretta lynch talk about with bubba clinton on the tarmac in phoenix? we don't know because it was a private conversation with all the aids scrambled out. the fact that everybody was moved off that airplane except the two principles says what they were talking about was something they didn't want anybody else to ever know about. so all of these, you know, breathless democrats talking about how we've got to get to the bottom of it, good. get to the bottom of it. there's plenty to investigate. i hope they'll actually do it. abby: question is -- >> the investigation may be going in a different direction. >> firm reading how james comey after being advised by loretta lynch to call it a matter rather than investigation joked to his colleague. well, now the federal bureau of matter rather than the fbi. i think this is very important to say bad news for loretta lynch and the democrats does
6:04 am
not translate into good news for donald trump and the trump administration. what it does in my view is give muller a broader portfolio of things to investigate. what i am fascinated by is the question of what will loretta lynch testify to once she is sworn in under oath. i mean, my goodness. if i were her attorney, i would advise her to plead the fifth. i mean, if you're going to incriminate yourself, my goodness, don't do it in front of the senate judiciary committee unless you get a deal. abby: how much can you find? >> to me, the stuff i indicated last week, that's really nonsense. what is key, though, at the end of that sound byte you just played, what happened in that conversation when you had an open investigation, it was in the heart and the heat of that presidential campaign, and there is this highly improper meeting. i mean, if the comey trump one-on-one was improper as it was, highly improper, and most
6:05 am
people agreed to that, what was this meeting on the tarmac? for example, at the time if you remember contemporaneously they said they talked about their grandchildren. really? is that what you will swear to under oath under penalty of perjury? i really do believe as this russian investigation to go out, two things. one is i believe, and i think it's time for everybody to grow up and understand that there was russian meddling in the u.s. election. that really really happened. secondly, there's no evidence of collusion or illegal activity between the trump administration or campaign or transition and the russian government. but this is what i've been saying, and i say it over and over again. the danger, the peril to the president, all the president's men and women and the democrats now is perjury and the destruction of evidence or obstruction of justice.
6:06 am
that's what the danger -- the danger will not the crime because there probably wasn't one. but it will be the cover-up, and i think that's where general flynn is in such trouble right now. >> but there's also danger to our country trying to get things done. the latest poll russia investigation 64% say it is hurting our country. 56% say it's time to move on to other issues. 44%, lower number say we should stay focused on russia. how do you respond? >> i think that's a significant poll but also insignificant and irrelevant. there were times watergate went from 1972 to 1973, it dragged on for a couple of years there. people were sick of it until there came to be a point where as john dean described this cancer on the presidency, the cancer began to metastasize, and it looked as if richard nixon was peril. abby: yeah, but our time, the american people out there feel
6:07 am
that it's a sham that so much time has been wasted on russian investigation that we aren't talking at all about things that they care about. things like health care. things like immigration, like tax reform, focusing on the actions that need to get done. and we talked about the attorney general lore eight lynch and the covering of that. there are has been basically zero coverage of that and yet the russian investigation. that has covered every news channel for months and months. >> but the fact we are sick of it and impatient to move on to the next order of business, we have to understand that now you have this special counselor. now that i have a staff that many fans of the president and himself feel that this highly partisan but now they are -- they are empowered to probe. they are going to probe. this thing has its own life, and we just have to get over it. there's nothing the president can say that's going to stop the special counsel from calling witnesses, from having
6:08 am
very high profile things happening to have this disruption. people looking for subpoenas in their mailbox or at the door. worrisome things happening. rodger and all of these other guys, you're going to be seeing a drag here and there. and in the midst of that, you'll see loretta lynch and also former president bill clinton, and you'll also have all of these other questions because the democrats like the republicans now face the prospect of an uncontrollable independent counsel who is going to make everybody uncomfortable and, abby, you're absolutely right. we have much bigger fish to fry than this nonsense, but this is going to affect a lot of people's lives i think in a negative way. >> you have a long distinguished career of asking people questions in power. and the trump white house to decide we're not going to have a daily briefing every day like democrats and republicans have had for years.
6:09 am
they say this a lot. it's all gotcha questions. they're not really trying to get to the truth. they're not talking about the issues that abby is talking about in the diners, the jobs, the health care, instead it's all gotcha on james comey, so they're trying to shut that down. >> or sean spicer. >> sean spicer. smart play? dumb play? >> well, i as a republican, as a pragmatic idealist, i think i had a better idea because sean spicer has been raiding through the roof with these afternoon briefings. however contentious you are. and you're absolutely right, a lot of reporters stand up and have their moment in the sun, i would say i'm going to sell commercial spots to these briefings. i'm going to use the revenue from these commercials we sell to fund the deficit. or you want to use the money in that way? use it for that. but i think that there is no doubt that they become show. and you know better than
6:10 am
anybody. abby: not what they should be, though; right? >> i think we have, like, a sketch from cnn if i'm not mistaken because, you know, they're trying to get those ratings. >> they hired a court reporter at cnn. >> next, i'm going to have a sketch of me here. >> very distinguished. >> how much does that sketch and these briefings and all of this about this matter to the person sitting in the middle of the country who's worried about a job, who's worried about health care and things of that nature? how much does it truly matter? >> i think that -- and i'm not putting down sean spicer at all. i think that, you know, earlier -- he started off at a disadvantage and the terrible first day, and it's hard to recover your season when you start off so at a badly. the crowd size and hostility and all the rest. but when you see sarah huckabee sanders in that job, she feeling these questions with a certain grace and
6:11 am
intelligence that i think in views to president trump and the trump administration, you can make these briefings a positive, despite the hostility of the press. and maybe you mention you get a hostile question. well, did you ask me if i beat my wife lately? you can turn it around. but i think the ratings indicate that people really are entertained by it. >> it has become a show. it has become a reality show. >> you're exactly right. it becomes a reality show. but you can't argue with the success of it. it is -- it rates through. abby: but here's where i see the problem, and i think why many americans are frustrated. if you have this one opportunity to ask the most important questions of the day, use that time-wisely and ask about the things that truly matter and time and time again, they've been just represented questions about russia investigation so and so on, and it doesn't get us anywhere. >> what is happening, though, is something unprecedented. president obama played favorites in the media, but it is nothing as obvious and as
6:12 am
specific as you're seeing now. president trump in a very public way has suggested that everybody but us is fake. that everybody but us is out to get him. he may be absolutely accurate bumble cnn, i mean, it is sometimes the clinton news network. but i think that it is extraordinary, and it will be interesting going forward how we as a network deal with the fact that we are now the designated venue of choice for the president of the united states. abby: well, to that point, geraldo, good to have you on with us on a saturday morning. president trump has been tweeting already this morning. he is up and ready to go this morning. we will bring it to you right after these headlines. that's what you call a tease; right? starting with good news about congressman steve scalise now in fair condition and out after being shot in the hip last week. also now in good condition. the tyson food lobbyist discharged from the hospital. both were among five people

6:18 am
of was there collusion between the trump campaign and the russian government? and i'm not saying don't investigate that. it is being investigated. it will be investigated. so far, there's no evidence that that happened. however, there's been this blind eye to the idea that donald trump was not the president of the united states last year. breaking news here. he was not the president. he was not the chief executive. he was not the commander-in-chief when the man in the oval office who was barack obama found out as abby said earlier, august 2016 than the only is this russian meddling happening, but it's being directed by vladimir putin and all he did on the sidelines is tell vladimir putin cut it off. please. pretty please. abby: and all because of politics. if he mentioned something back in august, it would be seen as him trying to interfere in the election. he thought there was no way hillary clinton is going to lose, so i'm just going to sit back and let this thing happen. which to your point, you're commander-in-chief. what do you do?
6:19 am
you do what is best for the american people. what is best for us. >> why didn't he do it? everyone wants to know. why was donald trump out there saying hack hillary clinton's e-mail? did he have some sign from the russians? you know, what were his aids doing? okay. some fair questions. it is being investigated. i repeat. it is being investigated by different committees. but nobody is looking what happened in the obama time even with david who we just had a few moments ago, a former obama campaign official said there were problems. >> president obama did announce that this happened. he did take some action. the action he should have taken should have been more significant, and it should have been more retaliatory towards russia and sent a much stronger message was not good enough. it absolutely was not good -- they say we choked because they didn't do enough. but it's not fair to say that president obama didn't do anything. in fact, he made several private warnings to putin to stop doing this. there were others who were reluctant to do this during the campaign. they were afraid that it would
6:20 am
actually impact the campaign, and they were being -- in my view -- too careful. >> let's not forget president obama, because you've been covering this for decades. president obama punted on a lot of foreign policy issues, not just this, and that was really hurt our standing in the world. abby: yeah, she used to work for the obama administration and said the same thing. i don't have her exact quote but something along those lines. and that's the problem. we have more on this exclusive interview where we're getting a lot of these great from president trump with our own pete that is airing live right here 6:00 a.m. on fox and friends. you do not want to miss that. >> great. >> yeah, great interview. one man making a big statement to support president trump buying a big billboard telling abc news to get over russia.

6:26 am
you? >> also known as obamacare was the first step to help fix our health care system. and what we've learned from the affordable care act and the house republican bill and the senate republican bill is that one thing. being an insurance company right now is not profitable; right? because you're forced to cover more people, and that's why premiums are going up. so what we've got to do here is see what the cbo senate score coming out in a couple of weeks. but it seems to me whether you're democrat or republican moving closer and closer to single pair as the way to help solve america's health care problem. >> wasn't that what a lot of conservatives said is, hey, you're going to blow this thing up and then single pair is the only way out. shouldn't that have been thought out beforehand, carl? >> it definitely should have been. and that was the ultimate goal. there's a lot of countries that can point to single pair as very successful. the problem is they're also not leaders in medical, you
6:27 am
know, medical research like america is. it just doesn't work. look, we tried this, and i put this on republican house and senate just as much because, look, these guys have, like, seven years to pass this stuff and come up with some kind of plan that day one when trump got into office, this was his first initiative, like, look, we're going to repeal and replace this thing. he's the only one with any spine to go out and do this. house republicans passed a repeal under 60 something times under president obama. they wouldn't pass it as soon as trump was in office. >> let's take a step back. i'll let you weigh in on that if you want. i do want to bring in another element. you worked for a long time with president obama, free country. he can speak out on health care, campaign, however, there's been this unspoken rule president to stay out of the way, at least for a few months and number two, isn't a crutch for democrats and if
6:28 am
president obama is who they rely on, shouldn't thereby a new generation of leaders? >> i think there should be. but one with the obama presidency, and you covered it; right? was a very historic presence. he's revolutionary. just like the trump presidency has been revolutionary, and we're only 100 some odd days in. so i think the rules by both of these men, both donald trump and barack obama have been broken and now we're in a new era where the former president of the united states barack obama saying this is the key part of my agenda, and i'm going to fight like hell if you're going to try to repeal it. so i'm going to go out there and defend it, and here's what president obama does know, the former president knows is this: one in five americans are on some sort of medicaid; right? and what we see in the house and senate bill is those will be stripped with the senate bill a couple of years and the house bill tomorrow. none of these bills have
6:29 am
really figured out a way to cover this who have preexisting conditions, which is why you hear the debate going. >> i hear frustration among conservatives is you have president obama kneecapping the president. but on twitter, the president is kneecapping every conservative. >> barack obama has never had a job outside of government. so he really doesn't know what to do right now. hey, keep going out there and talking. it worked out great with hillary clinton. you know, let him go out there. it's getting republicans all kinds to tie them back to barack obama to his failed policies of obamacare, to any other policy that he put in place that didn't work. >> you have republicans going barack obama, go out there and nancy pelosi. >> yeah, i'll pay for your airfare. it's working out for us. 5-0, baby. >> the president and university of chicago. number one and number two, i
6:30 am
think more importantly when you talk about nancy pelosi and barack obama being out there, special elections don't mean anything. >> he flies first class. >> so do i. >> coming up, we have a big show that's going to stay on. one state democrat is out of job for this disgusting statement about steve scalise. >> we blame our -- >> i'm not going to (bleep) say that in public. >> are democratic leaders doing enough to simply denounce this type of what's basically hate speech? we're going to ask congress man adam next. and then it's play time. have a little fun. we've got the hottest toys of the summer right here in studio. rick is getting ready for some bubble ball as moms, we send our kids out into the world, full of hope. and we don't want something like meningitis b

6:32 am
6:33 am
6:34 am
>> i mean, that's a terrible word. think of it. their theme is resist. their theme should be let's get together. but their theme is resist. and the problem is they've become obstructionists and the voters, i happen to like it from the standpoint of running for office. but i think it's a terrible
6:35 am
theme of getting elected and more importantly, i think it's a terrible theme for people in this country. that's not what they want. >> great interview there with pete. you can see that tomorrow right here 6:00 to 10:00 right here on fox news. great stuff. >> i want to bring in republican congressman who served in the u.s. air force. representative adam. good to have you with us. >> thank you. abby: all right. so fist off the top, president trump calling out democrats for being obstructionist. here's another sound of that. oh, sorry. we already played that sound byte i guess. we're just making sure you're awake this morning, congressman. but what is your take on that idea of obstructionist? in order to get anything done, you need both parties at some point to work together. . >> this goes on both sides.
6:36 am
i think the president has been reaching out on a lot of issues. the reality we have to understand is that health care was never going to be bipartisan, at least in this first part of it. it's been seven years fighting republicans and democrats over it. but we have a real opportunity on tax reform, on infrastructure, and frankly, something i'm very excited about what i've seen from this administration national defense and america's role in the world. there's real opportunity to work together. but i've been seeing, for instance, with the health investigation. house members rush to the cameras to talk about this collusion with russia, even though there's no evidence, and they're supposed to be investigating in a neutral manner. so that is i think poisoning the well to real bipartisanship. abby: do you have any democrats in the house wanting to work with you and the republicans? or is it really as bad as it seems? >> no. there really are good democrats that are willing to work with us. i talk to them all the time, but you have to keep in mind, there's real political pressure. again, i don't
6:37 am
think they want to work with us on health care. we have to understand at least this first part is just going to be a partisan mess. but when it comes to tax reform, keep in mind, they have pretty serious pressures in their party. when i talk about the left of the democratic party, i'm not even talking about nancy pelosi anymore. she's moderate in comparison to elizabeth warren and bernie sanders who's really dragging the democratic party left and frankly threatening these folks, kind of the more moderates that want to work with us with primaries that they even so much acknowledge that president trump is rightly and legitimately elected. >> so, congressmen, you're speaking out this morning. but as i cover washington, i don't see a lot of your colleagues going to the mat for this president. they seem to be cautious. they seem to be wanting to see how this russia investigation plays out. they seem to think maybe the mainstream media narrative about chaos is somewhat true, and i don't know what the white house is going to do on any given day. am i wrong about that?
6:38 am
do you want some of your colleaguing standing up saying let's get tax reform done. let's get health care done because you talked about division among republicans. i'm hearing gunning among republicans over health care and frankly, i'm not hearing a lot of your colleagues speaking out on behalf of this president. >> well, that's true. and i saw -- i was listening to one of your guests carl higbie on a prior segment immediately turn and blame house republicans for something about what's going on with health care. we've got to work together as a team. now, as a republican and as a congressman, my job is to support the president whenever i can, but also be a check on the executive branch. we have to play that role, and we have to play it right. but when it is all said and done, we need to pivot to what our agenda is. and so i would encourage, frankly, even the administration and the white house to pivot always to what our agenda is. and don't get sidetracked by these other issues right now. >> all right. let's switch gears now. nebraska democratic party official saying just horrible things about congressman steve scalise. let's take a listen.
6:39 am
>> his whole job is to give people -- convince republicans to (bleep) kicking people off (bleep). i hate that (bleep). i'm glad he got shot. i'm not going to (bleep) say that in public. >> then what are you saying it to us for? what are you telling us for? >> i wish he was (bleep) dead. >> forget the political aspect of this. wishing another human dead, that is horrific, unless it is of course osama bin laden. this is one of your colleagues. >> when i hear him saying that, he's a despicable human being. i know steve scalise very well, he's a good human being and a good father and a good dad. i would say that to any of my colleagues on the left too. there's humanity here. this has gotten out of control. i put a post out on my facebook a couple of days ago where it came comments to me after the shooting including
6:40 am
representative, i wish you were on second base. some other republicans deserve to die. it's disgusting. and we have to bring that darkness to the light. to show the dark underground of internet comments. but that's what feeds to these people getting radicalized, grabbing a weapon, and shooting a baseball practice. abby: if you think more republicans coming out and condemning that practice? >> if any republican official, even my best friend or father would have said that about a democrat, i would be out today on this exact show condemning it loudly, and i think they all need to do the same thing. abby: representative, always good to have you with us. >> thank you. abby: turning to some other headlines we're following. good spartans forming a human chain to caught a woman caught in floodwater. you have to take a look at this. her car was swept away in a alabama chick-fil-a parking lot. about half a dozen people locking arms to pull her out
6:41 am
safely. that woman was not hurt, thanks to those people. also bernie sanders and his wife scrambling to hire top-notch help. facing fbi probe after allegedly lying seven years ago in vermont. she's accused to have millions of dollars, which did not exist in order to get that loan. the blunder led to and the college went bankrupt last year. and a texas man making a big statement. kyle bought this billboard saying i grew up with you. with your through. the russians didn't elect donald trump. i did. well, courtney joined us. >> i don't know where they get their information. it's as if they never leave new york city. but there's a lot of america out here. there are a lot of people who we don't feel like they represent us. >> courtney would not say how
6:42 am
much cash he shelled out to buy that billboard, but i'm sure it wasn't cheap. >> yeah. you see how many other people speak out in their communities. we've got rick out there. a couple of minutes ago, i look like the sun was starting to peak out there, buddy. >> i told you it was going to be a good day. we just had to get through the rain in the morning. but we're looking good. take a look at the weather map, show you what's going on this mork. temperature-wise, it is chilly across the parts of the northern plains. we have temperatures into the 40s. that's all behind the system. you see the rain shower across the northeast, down across the south, some pretty heavy showers in texas. localized flooding, and we have so much rain across the central gulf this week because of tropical storm cindy. any more rain we get there will cause some problems. across the southwest, 116 today in phoenix and tomorrow. but the heat building into the pacific northwest. we're going to see some temps push 100 degrees around portland, oregon as well. all right. guys. back to you.
6:43 am
>> rick, we're very happy that the rain has gone away. nonetheless, the mainstream media not cutting back on televised briefings. >> i think the white house of the united states of america should have these discussions on camera. they're just doing a disservice to the people on this country. >> do the american people really care? do you care? katie here to react. next baa baa black sheep, have you any wool? no sir, no sir, some nincompoop stole all my wool sweaters, smart tv and gaming system. luckily, the geico insurance agency recently helped baa baa with renters insurance. everything stolen was replaced. and the hooligan who lives down the lane was caught selling the stolen goods online.

>> maybe i'm old-fashioned, but i think the white house for the united states of america should have these questions answered on camera. they're just doing a disservice to the people of this country, and i don't want to sound like i'm getting on
6:47 am
my soapbox. this wouldn't be tolerated at city council meetings or at a governor's press conference. and here we have the representative of the president of the united states saying, no, you can't cover it that way. it's like we're just covering bad reality television is what it feels like now. abby: well, that is the mainstream media outraged that the white house is now cutting back on some of their press briefings. >> but do the american people even care? here to weigh in, managing editor katie. there is argument should be made. we heard that argument. but the base question here, does the individual who's worried about their jobs, who's worried about health care, do they care about this? >> no. they don't care even a little bit. and, look, the media is going to play this up because it feeds into their collapsing russia collusion narrative. and honestly, i'm half expecting them to start citing anonymous sources with knowledge of the impersonal public, which is saying it's so outraged with what's going on. even if we didn't have audio on a press briefing, there are many, many reporters in the room who are supposed to tell
6:48 am
us what's going on. and pushing the idea that taking away cameras takes away transparency is also saying those reporters aren't doing their jobs. >> yeah. we've seen this before, president trump. he loves to stick it to the media, tell him who's boss. the question now is how is the media going to responded? they're obviously angry about this. but is this going to make the coverage any more fair? my sense is, no, it might even get worse. >> no. of course. it is going to get worse. they're just going to hound us down, saying it means the trump administration is trying to hide something. so i would say if the white house was attempting to make things more transparent, that's probably not what's going to happen. but it's pretty flimsy for the media to be chewing on because it doesn't mean a whole lot. >> they really don't care about this, does president trump run a risk here? >> yeah. so, again, it's
6:49 am
giving fo thotter to the media, it is another thing for them to harp on. but it also shows that they don't have anything legitimate to say. if this is what they're getting angry about, it shows just how flimsy their arguments really are. >> that is well put. katie, thanks for having you with us this morning. >> thanks. abby: up next, it is play time in our studio here. we've got the hottest toys in our studio, and let's see it. it's ok that everybody ignores me when i drive. it's fine. because i get a safe driving bonus check every six months i'm accident free. because i don't use my cellphone when i'm driving. even though my family does, and leaves me all alone. here's something else... i don't share it with mom. i don't. right, mom? i have a brand new putter you don't even know about! it's awesome. safe driving bonus checks, only from allstate.
