citizens. something is deeply wrong at the white house and we hope whoever is in control over there can get on top of it and pull back from this terrible situation. clayton: his argument the president is not a role model for his kids. pete: that's the qualification for being president of the united states? clayton: because the president is not a role model, then, therefore, you should pass this mental incapacity. pete: impeachment to mental incapacity. you pointed it out. i thought it was a great point. look at the people supporting this bill versus the very common sense kate's law or sanctuary cities law. broke it down. 25 democrats support the president being incapable while only 24 support kate's law. three supported the sanctuary cities bill that would simply deny some federal funding to cities that won't uphold the rule of law. abby: pretty i couldn't know real. shows you where some of the priorities are in the country right now. and why not much is getting done because they are so focused on getting the

3:08 am
put as their headline and use entire show to make it seem like is he incompetent and mentally i will. we don't need to go back to the tweet. i was thinking, you know, you have got so much on your agenda right now. a lot you can speak to. really going in your favor. clayton: i do think we need to go back to the tweet. that was the issue. if you are the president of the united states, why do you have to stoop to that level? why swing at pitches in the dirt? i have been saying this for months. president of the united states elevate the discourse if you are in the oval office? what does he get after going after morning joe? nobody watches that show anyway. now people do. pete: they watch it one day to see how they would respond. clayton: no one watched this show at all. why are you -- why do you even care what they have to say? pete: people said et same thing during the election during every manufactured scandal during every tweet he sent during the election. if he keeps doing this he is going to lose. is he hurting himself. turns out it never did. clayton: i agree with that. pete: holding him accountable. no it's not. way beyond accountability.
3:09 am
it's assassination. if you watch morning joe. it's he's a pig. is he unfit. he is mentally deranged. it's all basically they are scorned because they used to like him and used him for ratings and turned out to be a conservative. clayton: thing they were upset about all friends and now they can't get lunch with the president. that whole insider television show that nobody watches or cares about i don't think you even need to swing at a pitch in the dirt get on the phone get on tweets and talk about these guys. abby: to your point i think they are loving every minute of it. pete: of course they are they are narcissists. abby: president trump to my point earlier he has he a lot to speak to right now. things are going his direction. travel ban going his way. economy is looking good. hopefully they can get something on healthcare. dealing with the v.a. so much he can speak to right now. keep that the focus. you have the american people that are excited about the future of this country. so my advice to him, especially over this holiday weekend, tweet about this country.

clayton: go back to the middle east trip. you had those in the left-wing media fawning over middle east trip. weighs there and presidential. wasn't tweeting this stuff about morning joe which no one watches or cares about. it's like he elevated the conversation when he was on that middle east trip. and even the left wing media got on board and saying wait a second. the "new york times" saying what a successful trip this was. that's what he should be doing. pete: point taken. i get it. abby: our opinions matter. do you know whose opinions matter more? our audience. what do you think about this. we have been thinking about it all week. should he continue to fight back at the mainstream media? pete: more tweets? less tweets? different tweets? we want to know. abby: here are the headlines we are following this morning with a fox news alert. a manhunt underway right now after gunfire erupted outside an arkansas nightclub injuring more than a dozen people. the shooting happening just hours ago at the power ultra

pete: thanks, abby. the so-called mainstream media in hysterics once again. this time over the president's mental health. are they finally taking things too far as if they haven't already? here to debate it former dnc senior advisor zach and the former national spokesperson for donald trump for president katrina pierson. both of you, good morning. zach start with you. you have 25 congressman in the house of representatives prepared to introduce a bill say the president of the united states per the 25th amendment of the constitution is mentally unfit to be president. you cannot acknowledge that this has gone way, way too far. >> first i think that legislation was introduced in april and it's about a general clarification of the 25th amendment. pete: no, they are saying president trump is unfit. >> well, look. i mean, i think of a better use of time would be spending on fighting the healthcare bill that would take 23 million americans off of their healthcare. i think a better spent time would be protecting the russia collusion investigation.
3:25 am
however, i think that what they are responding to is some really erratic and irresponsible behavior by this president that goes back several years. i mean, what would you call somebody who says that the supreme court justice antonin scalia was murdered as part of a large conspiracy. what would you say about somebody who said his political opponent ted cruz, his father was part of the conspiracy to kill john f. kennedy? what would you say is somebody who says -- who watches cable news for five hours a day and cannot control basic impulses that every other american is able to do. i mean, that's what this is in response to. pete: there are tens of millions of americans who voted for this person who is supposedly unfit. katrina, is that not an indictment of them. >> exactly. tens of millions of people who they are also saying is mentally incapacitated to make their own decisions. we can talk about conspiracy theories. i think what's really happening here, pete, is the simple fact that amnesia seems to be the primary
3:26 am
symptom of this rabid trump derangement syndrome. it's like the left can't seem to remember that the election so ever. people have spoken. donald trump is actually trying to move forward these policies. that individual blue states actually supported and the left can't seem to come to grips, which is exactly why the democrat party has an identity crisis. because their entire platform today is simply let's stop donald trump. and that's not a winning platform when we're looking at healthcare premiums continuing to go up. people losing their insurance is because of a democrat policy that weighs forced down the throats of americans and they're not even going to have access to healthcare if they don't do something about it. pete: zach, you are defending a bill that the vice president would have to approve to declaring his own president mentally unfit. isn't that a waste of time an entire attempt to discredit this president. >> first of all i'm not defending anything. pete: you just did. >> no. i'm saying we should be spending more time fighting
3:27 am
this descras tuesday healthcare reform bill. pete: and then you said russian collusion. >> no i'm saying it's a reaction. people are general live concerned by the actions and behavior of this president. if any friend of mine went on twitter or made statements that were like what this president said about antonin scalia being part of a inch conspiracy or ted cruz's father killing jfk. if any of my friends engaged in that kind of behavior i would be staging an intervention and you would, too. as well as katrina. pete beat katrina? >> just because an individual doesn't behave or use words that, you know, you have been conditioned to use and say, doesn't mean that person is mentally incapacitated. i mean, we are talking about an individual who built an empire, a global empire. so he was smart enough to do that and to get that business off the ground ago going. at the end of the day, we have to look at what's really happening here.
3:28 am
this isn't about twitter comments. this isn't about whether or not donald trump can govern or not. this is about the left and the inability to understand what happened in november. and until then, they are going to continue to waste time and spend tax dollars on something that is just simply not going to happen. pete: we're going to have to leave it right there, zach. with the last word. but appreciate you both. obviously this debate continues across the country. zach and katrina, thank you, though. just when they thought it couldn't get any worse, yep, it gets worse. a brand new twist in the investigation into bernie sanders' wife. plus, are you proud to be an american on this fourth of july weekend? a surprising number of young americans, they're saying they're not. and wait until you hear why they're not patriotic. and while some on the radical left like to burn the flag, we like to fly it. the dos and don'ts for displaying old glory this fourth of july weekend, next. plus...what if this happened again?
3:29 am
i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? so i made a point to talk to my doctor. he told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots. eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. eliquis had both... ...and that turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless your doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop.
3:30 am
seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if switching to eliquis is right for you. and it's also a story mail aabout people and while we make more e-commerce deliveries to homes than anyone else in the country, we never forget... that your business is our business the united states postal service. priority: you ♪ we hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. ♪

3:40 am
pole you can hang it against a building or against your house. and you would display it like this. the problem is people when they want to display vertically don't have the room they go to change it and that's actually incorrect. you have to flip it over and end up with the flag this way. pete: the stars are always on the left. >> when you are displaying it vertically. >> or horizontally. there is exception to that right side of a uniform or vehicle you have the union going forward because it looks like it's going forward rather than in retreat. and then the right. pete: that's why you see the patch on uniforms we are charging forward into battle. >> air force one flag when they -- originally when they painted the flag on air force one. they decided it's not going to go in retreat. rick: if you are hanging a flag you can keep your flag

at night outside? >> you can. here is two ways we can do it. i have here solar lights. solar lights now have expanded and have gotten so great. you can put one in the stake. in the ground you can have it shining up on the flag. or take the stakeout of these kits and can get some cable ties and put it either to the poll or to the staff itsself. if you have a flag with an actual pole there is actually an aholding goes through here, catches it there and shines there. rick: the point to keep it lit? >> yes, sir. >> from dust to dawn. rick: how about rain? >> you can keep the flag out in inclement weather but it should be a flag that can stand the elements. so, you want to put a cotton flag out there that's going to get ripped and torn and don't want to put one out there that's going to bleed. you don't want those dollars to bleed at all. they have to safe.
3:42 am
pete: and of course it never touches the ground. >> never touch anything. some stores will have a display and might have the flag like touching a top shelf. that's also improper. but, you know, god willing, things happen. and if the flag does touch the ground, you can clean it you can take it, can you clean it can you dry clean it the old thing used to be that you destroyed it and most representative tillable dry cleaners will do it for free. rick: sean powers, thank you so much for this great advice. this the is weekend everybody wants to get their flag flowing outside. clayton: glue holding the democrats' collusion narrative together. >> 17 of our intelligence agencies. >> 17 intelligence agencies. >> 17 different united states intelligence agencie agencies. clayton: turns out that number was wrong. lieutenant colonel tony shaffer says is he not surprised. did the democrats know it wasn't true the entire time? we'll dive in with him next.

the russian -- evidence of the russian hacking, so-called hacking was simply going in to email accounts and there is no basis to really confirm the russians did it that's the biggest point. secondly, to this whole narrative, look, this was put out there as weaponized information. we have talked about weaponized information here several times over the past five months. this was put out there for purposes of the democrat party, people like hillary clinton, joe biden, all the others to put this up as a weapon against president trump. so, we have to understand that this was meant to do what it did. attempt to undermine the belief that our election process was valid. it was. and simply put, the mainstream media colluded with the president -- i mean, with the democrat party to go against the president. abby: tony, it's not a good headline. 17 agencies saying that is one thing. when you only have four. that's not a great headline. as we saw yesterday retracted i think ap late on

the difference is he has 100 million social media followers oso his platform is signature can'tly bigger. this is the hip sip of the mainstream media. what we know is that multiple people in the media, people you know, maybe friends, maybe not, have gone privately and said, look, you know, donald trump, president trump, candidate trump, we want to be near you. we want to be next to you. you are the greatest. let me come and hang out with you. all of a sudden in public for ratings or for click bait or for whatever it may be they go after president trump privately. they are praising him. it's amazing. clayton: let me ask you that question. because no one watches morning jo, right? no one watches morning jovment now they were tuning in friday to see what the show was all about. they came back from vacation to do their own show. the president tweeghts about it why does the president care about what morning joe is saying about him? >> >> the president doesn't care what morning joe is saying. when someone attacks donald trump he is going to respond. when you look at it, these individuals have attacked him consistently.

4:08 am
under the obama administration to reduce poverty, to reduce crime. they have done none of those things. they have increased our deficit. so the american people voted for a change in donald trump. 63 million people voted for donald trump to come and change washington. and what they hate is that is exactly what he is doing. is he fulfilling his campaign promises. so they will do anything they can to try and stop him from being successful. but, let me tell you this. the american people are smart. what they know is in the five special elections that republicans have had an opportunity to run, in they have won all five. they are sending people to washington to change a broken system. because the 30 years it's been broken and people are tired of it. >> corey, i want to get your opinion on this. this is from "the washington post. this is actual headline this week. and i will put it up on the screen. it says. this first half of 2017 is the strongest u.s. stock markets have seen in years. came out immediately and said this is all the president's doing, but what do you make of that?

"the washington post saying we are rolling along here. this is economy is starting to get down to business. >> well, this is exactly what the president said he was going to do. he measures his success and the success of the american people by the jobs that he is helping to create. the regulations is he reducing so american businesses can reinvest capital investment into their businesses. to grow the economy better. this is exactly what he said he was going to do. we have seen it since. he ha was the president-elect until today. the stock market is through the roof. companies have more ability to invest their capital because they have more confidence in what he is going to do. is he reducing regulations, is he helping coal miners and manufacturers. is he brings jobs back. of course the economy is going to government. this is a pledge he made to the american people. look, the mainstream media hates this. and they don't want to give him the credit for it but he deserves the credit for bringing the economy back and growing at a rate nobody expected. he said we can't grow at 1%. we are going to grow at 3%,

4:47 am
warfare, predators. those types of drones. we neglected this whole other side of things on the consumer side and for years now the capabilities that exist would be small consumer drones that anyone can just buy from a local wal-mart or off amazon. the capabilities are mind blowing. clayton: let's talk about consumer drones. go to an apple store. go into -- go on amazon and order some of these drones for $1,000. are we able to track these? is that what it is going to come down to, tracking the sales of that in order to stop it. >> we have to regulate a bit better. last year over 2.1 million drones sold alone in the u.s. that's just the u.s. so when you think about the amount of people that are now utilizing these things would have got to get a handle on it case we have to get away from typical government bureaucratic process and talk to the tech leaders and drone experts that really know how to counter that and talk to the guys in silicone valley that understand how to build the software to help manage it. pete: if you are a soldier on outpost do we have

4:53 am
historic moment for this country when that happens. no republicans on this list though, alli. >> yes, so we have two problems here right off the bat. cosmo claims in its mission statement to be a publication that empowers all women to be themselves. what we are seeing, however, is they want all women to be themselves unless they are conservative. problem number two is that this article that we're discussing describes itself as a list of imminently qualified women who could be the next president. the funny part about that is that on this list of imminently qualified women there are democratic women who are far less qualified than the republican counterparts. where is senator susan collins who has been in congress for more than 20 years? where is condoleezza rice? where is any republican female governor, kim rendle, for example. where is carly fiorina? this is a pattern that we are seeing conservative females excluded from the conversation about political leadership. abby: good question. one thing if no republican women in politics but you named some of them, alli.
4:54 am
nikki haley. joan ernest. susanna martinez. there are strong republican women that are already serving. why can't they politics it up and get both sides of the aisle? >> republican women are under represented in the media. more importantly, they are under represented in government. there are real policy implications for that republican women are often really important moderating influence on their party. if you look at what is happening right now, if we didn't have republican senator susan collins and lisa murkowski the republican party would have already taken away healthcare from 22 million people. we need to encourage those voices, not discourage them. but i think there is a simple explanation for the cosmo article. it was about who is generating buzz in 2020. there aren't any republicans, male or female generating buzz in 2020 because we have sitting republican president. abby: there are a lot of young conservative women though that would support those policies, right? you have got people from both sides of the aisle. women go -- democrat and they are republican. i can't help but think, alli

4:56 am
ideological way and seat hypocrisy that the democrats claim to be the tolerant party and party of defendant. what they really want is for you to believe everything that they believe. unfortunatelunfortunately for pe aren't buying it. abby: what needs to change? >> i think that the republican party needs to get a lot more inclusive of women, especially at the state and local level. republican women are under represented at every level across the government. they are the smallest demographic in congress, in the senate, in state legislatures. that has to change. abby: does the media have a role. do they have a responsibility to point out republican women when as we showed on that list they could easily point out republican women. >> if that list would have republican women would have been uncomfortable. suggesting nikki haley pri bright primary the president whose cabinet she sits on. >> . not going to see a lot of republican women in 2020

when he punches back, they hate it because he i. clayton: i'm fine with the tweets. it's the content of the tweets. governor huckabee agreed with me. he said if if i was advising the president. about governor puck beagreed hue agreed with me. middle east trip tweeting about foreign policy. talking about the trip. things they were accomplishing. even the left wing media was praising the trip. i thought elevated the conversation. looked presidential. then tweeting about some show that no one is watching and you are swinging pitches in the dirt. pete: during the campaign he said the same thing. clayton: i'm not saying that it's somehow going to hinder his ability to run for re-election. i'm just saying as the president of the united states why do you even care what morning joe is stay saying. abby: interview that president trump had with you this extreme rhetoric might work in a campaign. he said when you are running a country it needs to change. he said that in the interview.
5:08 am
i don't have the exact interview. along those lines. i think that does come from the top. we forget by the way that this shooting with steve scalise that happened less than a month ago. you remember the outcry from the american public to say the discourse has got to die down. we have got to wake up in this country. we all have different opinions about. this so do our audience, right? of course we have asked them their thoughts as well. clayton: todd is here this morning. you hit the streets and went out and got a sense of what people are saying out there. todd: a lot of people agree with you, clayton. a lot of people agree with pete. here is whether a they will to say. >> he has the right to say whatever he pleases. he is our president. but he is still a person way personal opinion, also. >> what do you think about what the president is tweeting. >> i don't have an issue with it he is hitting back and taking all the blows from the major news outlets and he is just hitting back. i have no problem with him keeping it up honestly. i think they do need to be called out. >> i think he contradicts himself a lot. he needs to kind of chill out and do his job.
5:09 am
>> what your opinion of donald trump's tweeting. >> i think he probably needs to stay off the tweets. you know, i like donald trump. i think that he is, you know, changing some things. but, i think he needs to stay off the tweets. >> the mainstream media totally left, totally against everything he does. if what he says is not being presented to the people, let's go right. how else you can get it out he is doing it that way. >> we should just block his entire twitter completely as a whole. >> awesome. i think they are honest. is he doing a great job. in his tweets, it is what it is, it's the truth. >> he is going to do whatever he wants to do regardless of what people say. he is the president, right, wrong or indifferent. >> does it bother new any way, shape, or form. >> it doesn't have any effect on my life. i'm going to live my life the way i want to todd: that's the big take away we have some issues that people care about. their jobs, their taxes, their healthcare. this stuff is just noise. if you lose in the media, todd, you lose oftentimes at the ballot box or in the
5:10 am
halls of congress. so the narrative really matters. if you don't punch back or change it or point out the fake news as he has done at cnn and elsewhere. >> that's the issue. abby: they are only going to get worse. when you hit back at them as we have already seen just in the last 24 hours, they are going to fight back even harder. so why even give them the attention. pete: you expose them by doing that. clayton: i have abby -- todd: drain that swamp. beth says thank goodness he tweets so we know what the administration is doing. we certainly don't see or hear anything in the media. i wish he would tweet more. so two for pete. now we are are going to go for one. clayton: i don't know if that argument there was spot on. tweeting about morning joe is what we want to know about. todd: judy says the 'president needs to stop the personal tweets, attacks. he needs to rise above it i think he should continue to
5:11 am
tweet and call out these msn personal attacks, but, i wish he would tweet more about his successes, v.a. bill, kate's law, jobs,. pete: we had kellyanne conway on. she pointed out the vast amount of president's tweets are about substance and v.a. he chooses moments to point out the fake news. abby: why choose this moment to tweet, pete. he knows he had the momentum. they were talking about these issues and the moment that he veered off and tweeted something personal he know what is they are going too do. the media is going too close to call them whenever they get the chance. he gave them the opportunity. todd: it's a holiday weekend. go at him. the healthcare bill is not dead. he has a chance to revive that he tweets about all of those things. the ability to critique the media has been something very effective. clayton: why call attention to a show that no one is watching and now it's the top story? pete: continue to tell us what you think friends at

5:26 am
communities have concluded all 17 of them, that russia interfered with this election. abby: after all that, it turns out it wasn't 17. the actual number was four. even the "new york times" corrected a story this week in which it also falsely claimed that all 17 intel agencies agreed on russia. clayton: overnight the associated press did the same thing issuing a late night, friday night correction just before the holiday weekend after it had published four separate stories citing that fake news. here to way in is harvard university law professor allen dershowitz. what do you make of all these corrections coming before the holiday weekend? >> i'm not surprised because we are going about learning about the russia connection if there was any in a wrong way. we are subjecting it to a criminal investigation behind locked doors in front of a grand jury. not what we should have been doing. we should have had an independent commission much like the 11 commission to inquire as to what happened. not to suspect crime immediately and to accuse people of crime. we accuse people of crime,
5:27 am
much too quickly in this country. we ought to find out what happened. it doesn't matter if you are a democrat or a republican, a liberal or conservative. if the russians try to tamper with the election in any way, we have to know that we have to pass laws preventing it for the future. but accusing people of crime and suggesting that there was collaboration without any information is not the right way to get the information that we need to prevent problems in the future. abby: right. where does it russian collusion story sit right now? it seems like this is another set back. we have been covering this for months and months and months. there is still no there there. how would you describe where we are in this investigation? how we should be thinking about it. >> it's very, very clear. we don't know. why don't we know? because the investigation being conducted a, behind closed doors, and, b, released selectively by leaks. both things that shouldn't be happening. this should be transparent. it should be out in the open. every american should know what the status of the
5:28 am
investigation is. it's exactly the wrong approach. abby: even if it were out in the open. you look how the media handled this story we are reporting right now that's not a good headline to show just four u.s. intel agencies support that claim with russian collusion. so, even if it were out in the open, do you believe the media would report it correctly? >> well, at least some media would get it right. if it was out in the open, the individuals would be able to make determinations for themselves. clayton: right. >> but by having it leaked selectively, that's where you get this misinformation all the time. because the fbi and that was true under comey, it's true under the current director, and it's been true for years now. clayton: right. >> leaks information when it serves the interest of the fbi to leak the information. the director of the fbi didn't have the courage to come forward and say he wants a special counsel appointed. he went behind the back of everybody went to a columbia law professor and laundered

5:30 am
expires on its own within 90 and 100 days. that's before the supreme court would hear argument. if they do hear argument, i think they will uphold the travel ban as it relates to people that have no connection to the united states and might tamper with it a little bit or tinker with it a little bit when it comes to people who have connections. obviously, there is a distinction between somebody who has a green card and somebody who has never been to the country and wants to visit. abby: always a sound voice. always enjoy having you professor allen dershowitz. happy holiday. >> thank you. happy holiday. clayton: brand new fake news scandal that could give cnn a run for its money. about ap reporters try to cover up a meeting try to make the president look back. would late night retraction be enough to overturn it. abby: corey booker, comparing them to the men who stormed the beaches at normandy, more on that coming up. ♪ ♪ to take.

5:46 am
>> let's set this up. 52 republicans, three democrats who voted for a version of this in the past. 55. now you have got to find five more democratic votes going to be very, very difficult. one of the ways that we are looking at this race and the dynamics of it are what we call pivot counties. counties across the country, 206 of them voted twice for barack obama and then voted for donald trump. pete: interesting. >> senator in maine comes from a state where half of the voters are living in pivot counties. this is the northern two thirds of the state. the rural counties, the people that felt like they were left behind. the very people who gave one electoral college vote in maine to donald trump. they are going to be concerned about this bill. this is an issue that is he going to hear an awful lot about from voters in maine. pete: my home state of minnesota is another one you are paying attention to. >> minnesota. heavily democratic state. none of us thought there was any chance it would go to donald trump in 2016. pete: almost did though.
5:47 am
>> came within two points. this is a state that we think is probably safe for senator klobuchar but 18% of the voters live in pivot counties. i want to put this in the proper perspective again. 5% of the votes nationwide were cast in pivot counties. very small section of the electorate. accounted for 51% of all republican gains. so they have the potential to change states. in fact, they are the reason that donald trump won a state like michigan where senator debbie stable now is up for re-election. she went with 59% of the vote the last time. then again, this was a state that donald trump pulled a big upset. if the pivot county voters don't like the messages they are hearing from these candidates, they could be in trouble. one of the biggest is tammy baldwin in wink. she is in a state that none of us expected donald trump to carry on election night. pete: part of that blue wall that broke. a state that perhaps broke because hillary clinton couldn't find it on a map and make the trip there.
5:48 am
pete: that always helps. >> that always helps. but this is a state that has about 18% or 17% of the voters living in pivot counties. places again looking for change. they are very open to hearing the ideas about kate's law, about protecting america, about enforcing the rule of law. and they want somebody who will stand up for them. another part of this state is a group of counties that are solidly republican now because of scott walker. that state has changed a since the 2012 election. pete: very instructive because a bill like this which does make common sense would be attractive to trump supporters. democratic candidates so locked in resistance they can't vote for it you are saying this could really have consequences with the 10 democratic senators. they better think twice about a vote like. this if we are being honest, i suspect it will not get the 60 votes, but this becomes a phenomenal campaign issue for the president to drive home in 2018 in support of a republican senate campaign.

pete: really interesting. since they are 0 for 4 so far in special elections. gubernatorial race in virginia next year so far doesn't look good when you just resist. >> you have got to do more than resist. the democrats need to find a message. special rejections are overrated for predictability. pete: fair enough. >> great under estimation of how firm these trump supporters are. also important to remember that one out of six americans are unhappy with donald trump who is in the white house. they are happy that he beat hillary clinton. thee reluctant trump supporters will be coming out in droves in 2018. pete: scott rasmussen. you did not fail this morning. appreciate your time. >> thank you. pete: democrats opening up a new line of attack against the president. questioning his mental health. will calling him crazy really remove him from office or is this a big old waste to everyone's time. geraldo rivera joins us live at the want to hour to comment on that. plus, are you proud to be an american? of course you are. well, some aren't. the surprising number of young americans are not

clayton: welcome back on this fourth of july weekend. you are feeling patriotic. you are putting out the flag. you are getting ready for the parades. you are getting your friends together and celebrating this country's history. a new poll out this morning from u gov. 1/3 of palestines aren't -- 35% say they are not patriotic at all. they have no connection to the fabric of our american
5:54 am
history. abby: you think about palestines. this is like the age group that's about to take over this country. they are going to be the next leaders of this nation. and you think about where their heads are at. we have lost sort of the sense of wanting to serve this country. right? pete, you are someone who has served the country and you have a lot of friends. stay with my family. i find the military is the most patriotic because they are in the thick of it. somewhere along the way we have lost sight of it. pete: that number is high but doesn't surprise me one bit. look at what happens in our june your highs and high schools don't teach civics. some don't say the pledge of allegiance. and go to safe spaces in universities and colleges where they are told america is to blame for all the ills in the world. the media and holiday hollywood reinforce. we are teaching kids to be global citizens. citizens of the world and not patriotic americans. this is why a lot of people went out and supported president trump. because they want their
5:55 am
country back. they believe in sovereignty. they love america. and they say, you know what? standing for the national anthem is pretty common sense. this is where our country is headed and we better reverse it especially in our educational. clayton: some people don't have that connection to american history. abby: they don't even understand it they are not taught it in school anymore. clayton: not taught about it in school. what we sacrificed on the beaches of normandy on d-day to bring freedom to the world, to liberate france, to liberate europe. today is the first day on july 1st, july 1st is the first -- 1863 is the battle of gettysburg. growing up in pennsylvania, go to see those battles, seeing the battle grounds. it's amazing. so many young people are just not connected to that the a all. they are not reading the books and not connected. abby: have you surprised by this? pouring in with your responses no wonder just look at what they are taught in schools to. your point, pete, they are not taught about the souls that have fought and died

6:00 am
>> mainstream media continues to attack the president. >> you are a pig. you are a bully, and you are doing disgusting things to this country >> their focus is more on insults than results. >> there is an unremittingly hostile atmosphere surrounding this president generated by the mainstream media >> what do you think of the president's tweet? >> taking all the blows from the major news outlets, and he's just hitting back >> president trump says the senate should repeal obamacare first and replace it later >> we're looking at every possible option of repealing and replacing obamacare >> we have an obligation to stick it out until it's done >> we have no business taking
6:01 am
recess, and we should cancel recess all together >> we have a number of house democrats getting behind the bill to remove the president from the office. they say he is being mentally incapacitated >> all of a sudden they want to try to remove a president for no reason. you know why? they hate the agenda, which is putting america first. ♪ ♪ abby: we all know this man. >> and we all know this song. because joey chestnut, world hot dog eating champion, the world hot dog eating contest is this weekend. abby: he looks too slim. i would think -- >> he only eats once a year, like, one of those large -- one of those pythons.
6:02 am
>> you ask how do you warm up? i think you warm up by eating. that's what i've been doing all morning long. 45 seconds. >> weapon tried to get geraldo to eat. >> i know. i can't find my glasses. abby: you need glasses to eat a hot dog? >> i did go to nathan every year at coney island, always takes one of our girlfriends, we are 100 years ago i think today, you know, this year they established their fine french fries. >> in our you're getting me hungry. i almost want to talk about hot dogs the entire show. but we have to talk about politics, if you don't mind. because more than two dozen democrats have joined onboard, i'm sure you heard about this bill, that's being sponsored by jamie that says the president is not a gentleman, he's not a role model, and he's unfit for office. so this mental incapacity bill is being pushed now by
6:03 am
democrats in order to get him thrown out of office. look at all of these congressmen who are joining in him even debbie wasserman schultz on this. >> well, she's bitter over her outing of the campaign by wikileaks and russia, presumably. but a former constitutional professor, law professor who thought of this scheme. this clever way to jab the president because that's all it is. it's just a political ploy. i mean, we have a 25th amendment. we have had a 25th amendment since 1967 where president if incapacitated if a majority of his cabinet feels he's incapacitated, the vice president takes over. you know, it is preposterous in this context, obviously. noted by the far left party. >> the former dnc chairwoman -- >> well, as i mentioned, she is no longer in power as, you know, she's irrelevant.
6:04 am
and all of the people pictured there, i would submit to you, are irrelevant. i believe that there's a middle of the democratic party and a more conservative ethic to the party. they can work with republicans with a health care bill, which i would like to see a compromise going forward. you know, you've been showing this disgruntlement in the country. reminds me very much of the jimmy carter era. we are one good news story away from that turning around. stock market's up 10%. unemployment's at record lows. there are a lot of achievements can't point to if he can get out of this by these irrelevant, you know, scandals of his own making. abby: i want to get to that, and he did tweet just a few moments ago. >> oh, he did? abby: not anything too controversy. he said happy candidate day to my new-found friend justin
6:05 am
trudeau. >> that's the first tweet. the second is word that greta was let go by her out of control bosses at nbc and comcast because she refused to go along with the trump hate. so one is sort of a positive about the candidate. more is litigation with the media. we've been having this discussion on the couch all morning. i think he should keep tweeting and keep fighting. abby: he's continuing to have his voice, and i will tell you the other side of this. every one of them is pointing to the fact that he shouldn't be tweeting or saying these things. but his following, they love that he fights for them. they feel like he's the man that's going to push back. >> i appreciate that. i have volunteered, though, to be his twitter editor, you know, for free because i believe, although i love the fact that he's a street fighter. i've known him for over 40 years, and that's one of the things that have made us friends. you know, i totally identify with that okay. you push me, i'll push you back. but some of his tweets have
6:06 am
caused him no end of self inflicted unforced errors. like when tweeted obama -- >> proved to be wrong. >> oh, come on. when he tweeted that comey better hope there are no tapes of the white house dinner conversation. and this tweet with mika brzezinski was so rude and unnecessary that i wish he would apologize. abby: well, he also gave him. >> shouldn't apologize to him? >> you're an officer and a gentleman, and you know you never talk about a woman's bodily fluids. that's a no go zone. now, i think he has been recklessly provoked by extremists and morning shows should be ashamed by themselves the fact that every morning they not only criticize him, they slander him. >> yesterday, watch this. their diagnosis of the president. >> he keeps getting worse and mentally keeps getting worse.
6:07 am
this is a man in decline. >> unwritten rule in the psychiatric community that nobody di diagnoses from a far. >> he's not well. he's not of so you understood mind. and, donald, if you're watching, i'll meet you in the school yard, brother. abby: have you ever known the media to talk about a president like this? >> no. abby: i mean, you have followed administrations for years. have you ever seen this? >> this is the most disrespectly, the most unremittingly hostile, that's the word i've been using of. the most recklessly insulting. their media personalities that benefit by notoriety. the president of the united states has to be more prudent and reasonable. >> that's been my point this morning. not that his supporters are going to not support him.
6:08 am
they'll support him until the sun goes down. it's about tweeting about a show that nobody watches and governor huckabee described them as a mosquito bite. >> i totally agree. he has 33 million followers. abby: that's more followers than the show. >> msnbc has a million viewers, if they're lucky a million five on a given day. why give that much attention to people who -- regardless of what you do. >> the fake media every single day perpetuate stories to try to make him look like he's not the president of the united states, like he's unhinged, mentally unfit. so it's a smack at him is the smack at the whole construct. >> i totally agree with everything you just said. i only say this to my friend, the president, don't feed this -- these flames. don't give them the tension they crave.
6:09 am
abby: because they love it. >> why punch down? >> when you punch down, you're -- >> you've got china and big deals to accomplish and, you know, that's what you like to see, particularly on a july 4th weekend. you want to be upbeat. abby: but, geraldo, you could also argue that the brand he has had continuously won him the election that had nine candidates that had far more money and experience, you could argue the brand just the way it is got him that far. >> it got him that far in business, that far in the election, good for a businessman, good for a presidential candidate, bad for a president. he's won the job already. >> you like the candidate tweet? >> well, the candidate tweet is effectively nothing. the second tweet, though, about greta, if he doesn't tweet that, what if it is true? she was out the because she didn't hate trump enough?
6:10 am
now he has such a megaphone that the world has to discuss whether msnbc is going to center the host r host. he has started an entire conversation that otherwise would not happen and the world knows how much fake media there really is. >> but that tweet right there is different than the one we saw the other day about what your point about the face and the -- abby: this might lead to a very productive conversation about how the media handles politics today and president trump. >> i love greta. i think she's a very honest person. she's a fine broadcaster. a thoughtful person who i adore, and i would love to see her back here on the couch back in the fox family. i would love to invite her back. she was poorly treated over there. he might be right that her politics were out of treated with others. although, in fairness, they have nicole walsh and others that are more even handed with rapport conservative credentials. not many.
6:11 am
not many. >> give me a pro trump over there. >> give me a break, shake of his head. i would love to see greta back. but the main point, the point that cannot be missed is that there has never been a presidency, and this is i think your main point. your main editorial point. there has never been a presidency more assailed by reckless criticism than the trump presidency. he's the accidental president in the mind of the establishment media. they all think they're smarter than him. they all want the job or want a high profile, at least as a jouster. he has to ignore, save his brilliant counterpunching for a real fight, and i think he's going to be fine. has rasmussen on the couch just 15 minutes ago. if you look at the polls in the election were among the most accurate, he's about where obama was. where president obama was in the high 40s. one good news story is going to click back to the 50% mark
6:12 am
and above, and he'll have a fine -- pete: and obama had the media in his pocket. >> good discussion this morning. thank you, geraldo. abby: go have a hot dog. >> coming up here on the show, democrats claim to be the party of diversity, but politicians may want to look at their own staff first. pete: and we asked you what you thought of president trump's tweets. >> i think they're awesome. i think they're honest. >> he's just sitting back taking all the blows from the major news outlets. pete: so what is the so-called mainstream media that's not all of that mainstream at all missing about president trump? former presidential writer for president bush ned ryan is on deck. ♪

pete: welcome back to fox and friends. well, president trump is still up and tweeting this morning. he just tweeted two minutes ago this. he said i'm extremely pleased cnn has finally been exposed as fake news and garbage journalism. it's about time. we know how he feels. >> feels strongly about that. meanwhile, but despite that backlash the president tweets, many american people still support his use of twitter and his fighter mentality. abby: so what is the mainstream media missing about the average americans, what they seem to understand? joining us now is ned ryun, former presidential writer for george bush and founder. >> hey, guys, good to be with you again. abby: so it seems so often when we talk about these stories, there's a voice missing in the mainstream media, and that is the middle of america. the people that go to the polls and vote. the people that decided on trump as our next president. tell us what the mainstream media is missing about their voice on this. >> well, you know, part of the problem is they're stuck in this bubble in dc and new york. they have their own different reality. most of the american people
6:17 am
are out there living their lives, realizing that donald trump is speaking their language in many ways. he's addressing their concerns. so, you know, they're thrilled that somebody's actually punching back. i mean, i've been in dc a long time, and you actually have a republican now that's willing to say i'm not going to sit there and take it. i'm going to punch back, and i think the media's still stunned that the president is willing to push back on their fake news. i mean, we just saw that tweet that's just had a few minutes ago that the amazing part about all of this is yet jake tapper was out in l.a. last weekend speaking to the l.a. press club saying, oh, we've got to be squeaky clean. we shouldn't be seen as the opposition and the resistance. and on friday as part of his show, he uses a fake national enquirer cover as part of his coverage. so the amazing thing that donald trump has the ability to do is to be able to call these people out and say you're saying one thing when the fact the facts are completely different. so a lot of his supporters are thrilled, and i would say i'm thrilled. i'm happy with about 88% of what he does on twitter. and the reason i say that is
6:18 am
in june, he had about 160 tweets. over 120 of them were about his administration. all the positive things taking place and him being able to talk about that. less than 20% of them were about media bias and pushing back. so when i look at what he does on twitter, he has a very powerful weapon. it'sa very powerful tool, and i like about 90% of what he's doing. >> so the other 10%, of course this week about mika brzezinski and her face and all of that, do you think he should have tweeted that? >> well, first of all, he elevated people that shouldn't have been elevated. leave them alone. ignore them. let them do their thing. they're never going to be your friends and support you. the second thing is catholic women did not like that tweet. he needs the catholic women to vote for him to get reelected. so there were just a couple of things. the third thing that really was a little problematic is that it kind of stomped on his message. there were some phenomenal things that happened last week that were drowned out by that tweet. we had two great immigration pieces that passed congress.
6:19 am
kate's law and a bill dealing with sanctuary city. and so the media spent 28 times more coverage on those tweets instead of talking about the immigration policy. so -- but you know the thing that i want to see, guys? i want him to take his social media to the next level. he has 107 social media follows by the time you combine all of them. he has the ability -- i like him to see 21st century fireside -- >> like facebook live using facebook and things like that? >> exactly. get a camera -- i would actually like to see him get a camera in there with a teleprompter, do live streaming and inform the media i'm going to be live streaming from the oval office talking about all the great things my administration is doing. you're more than welcome to tap into that live stream but have the ability to go around the media, speak directly to the american people and inform them, hear all of the wonderful things that the media doesn't want to talk about. pete: on a simple but larger
6:20 am
level, what does the mainstream media miss? >> they're blinded by their prejudice and visceral loathing of him. and i've told the president, this has nothing to do with rational thought. has everything to do with a visceral loathing for who he is, what his agenda stands for because it's the a antithesis of what they actually want to see happen. pete: and preservation too; right? >> it is preservation. and you know what the greatest revenge for the media would be? for you to get reelected, for you to have a supreme court 7-2 in our favor, for you to build an actual border wall, for you to have tax reform that juices our economy to 4% growth. abby: nothing would make them more upset. have a great fourth of july. >> thanks, ned. >> thanks, guys. you too. pete: all right. coming up it's a picture that's going to make you furious. why one city just through away these flags. >> plus after reducing to make a case for a same sex couple. so what happens when he was confronted by so-called

6:26 am
come in one day and ask me to make a cake for their same sex wedding, and i politely tried to say i could not do because of my faith. when they screamed at me and flipped me off and stormed out of my shop, they sued me, i lost, now here we are at the supreme court. abby: jack, you and kristen both were very brave to go on a show that had few pigeons. the view. let's hear that. >> they want the cake, they're having a party, all dressed up with their sheets. >> that sounds like something that would be discouraging and, no, that would not happen. >> and you would say, no, i would not. what do you believe jesus would have done in that situation? >> i i believe jesus wouldn't have made the cake in that situation. >> oh, come on. that's a deal breaker. jesus is going to make the cake. abby: i give you guys credit. that is not an easy show to go
6:27 am
on, and you both said we want to show our side of the story. that's important to us. >> it is important to us, and i think they tried their best to be fair and have a civil dialogue. and this point about jesus making the cake, i would make the point that that's what this case is about if someone wants to make the cake because their religious belief, they should have the right to do that. loys, jack should have the right to speak his messages and create his artistic expression that's consistent with his belief. and that's what the first amendment protects. >> well, jack, you said you're not judging the poom in your store. you're not judging their lives. you're just exercising their freedom of speech, freedom of religion, conscious as a private business. and ultimately, that's what you're hoping is upheld in this case, i would imagine. >> that's correct. if i were judging the people, i wouldn't allow them in my store. but as it is, i would sell them any of the products that i have. it's just the event is what's in question here that i don't want to make the cake. be compelled to make a cake for something, a religious
6:28 am
event that goes against my religious faith. abby: what is the response them from people in your community, your friends. what have they said to you about this, jack, about all of this and where you fall in all of it? >> it's almost entirely supportive. people understand that this is a personal issue, one that affects them as well, that the government is trying to compel me to do something against my religious faith, and they want their rights protected as well. pete: kristen, where do you think the supreme court is going to come down on this? >> well, i think the law in the first amendment is well settled that all americans have the right to speak messages and to live consistent with their faith, and i think the court will affirm that. i think the court will see and have seen the fact that the bail has been pulled back in this case because in a similar situation, someone went in and got a cake -- tried to get a cake that had an antisame-sex marriage theme and the same commissioner decided against jack said that in that case, they agreed with the message,
6:29 am
and they upheld it and said it wasn't violating a law. so tolerance needs to be a two-way street, and i think the court will affirm that. abby: we will see where all of this goes. thank you for being with us this morning. >> thank you. appreciate it. abby: still ahead, the president back on twitter just moments ago and slamming the host of morning shows. >> plus, it's the glue that's holding the democrats so-called collusion narrative together. >> 17 of our intelligence agencies -- >> 17 intelligence agencies. >> 17 different united states intelligence agencies. pete: those statements are all true if 17 means four. as it turns out, that number is wrong. and that's not the only correction that the so-called mainstream left-wing media is making this morning. abby: the gloves we are getting kicks with the rockettes this morning. ousted how they're helping our heroes this fourth of july weekend. pete: well done. having moderate to severe

abby: no, i would say he's doubling down. and this also comes after a tweet he also sent this morning about greta and the fact he says she was fired because she didn't go along with the antitrump agenda, which if that is the case, that leads t to a whole 'nother debate. >> also about cnn saying they've been exposed. and there's another that the media has been pedaling information about intel sources that just plane isn't true. >> forgot about canada day. abby: forgot about that one. >> but hillary clinton the debates talked about 17 intelligence agencies agreed that there was collusion -- that the russians had intervened in our election -- abby: to help president trump, spell. we heard that from a number of democrats across the board. here's just a little bit of that. >> this has come from the highest levels of the russian
6:35 am
government, clearly from putin himself in an effort as 17 of our intelligence agencies have confirmed to influence our election. >> 17 of our intelligence agencies. >> 17 intelligence agencies. >> 17 different united states intelligence agencies. >> the intelligence communities have concluded all 17 of them that russia interfered with the election. >> so we've got some corrections now. pete: first, the new york times say 17. >> who else had to look for it? pete: so the associated press, they also had to come out. they published stories june 6th, june 22nd, and 29th. and they reported that 17 intelligence agencies say russia tried to influence the election to benefit trump. that assessment was based on information collected by three agencies. the fbi, cia, and national security agency and published
6:36 am
by the office of the director of national intelligence, which represents the agency, not all 17 agencies were involved in the assessment. abby: that was retracted by the ap later on in the evening as it often is, so it's buried before you begin your weekend. but, look, that's not a good headline to have to say just four u.s. intel agencies support this. it's much easier to have a headline that says all 17. that's why we saw democrats touting that over and over and over again. >> absolutely. and i think we're going to see even more democrats and members of the so-called media having to retract and pull back stories. running after the sources. a lot of that is going to prove to be false as they haven't found any evidence yet of russia collusion. i think a lot have gotten wrong. >> also, 17 intelligence agencies? how many do we need?
6:37 am
we talk about bureaucracy. >> another interesting angle. >> come on, has needs an intelligence angle; right? abby: rick, where are you? >> we have a slide. i'm sad, though, guys, that there's not a big pool of water at the bottom this of. remember? abby: yes, i've done that. so there's no water at the bottom? >> no water at the bottom. it's also hot and humid, so we could use it. across the country today, we've got very warm temperatures. pick your city, we'll put the map in motion throughout the day, you see starting off today, a heavier line of storm back across the buffalo area, that will move off toward the east with but anybody is in the showers, south texas starting off with showers. hot and humid and afternoon thunderstorms for pretty much everybody. and going to warm up in a a pretty nice day overall.
6:38 am
this is when we're going to see the most sunshine tomorrow. severe weather moving into that area. today is your better day to get outside and finally out across the west, we are warming up again. temperatures back into the 80s in the pacific northwest and back over 110 toward phoenix. all right. guys. there you go. abby: that looks fun, actually. >> don't do this in a suit. >> rip your pants? >> i don't know. i'll tell you later. abby: i think he should do that after eating hot dogs in 45 seconds. pete: i will. it's a partnership that dates back to world war ii and now the radio city rockettes and the uso are once again joining forces to support our service members and our families. here to tell us all about it is kaitlyn, christine, sarah groom, and sarah saker. did i get all of those
6:39 am
correct? >> yeah. pete: i'm a c student at best. tell us what the rockettes are doing. >> we are beyond thrilled to be energizing an over 70-year alliance. the rockettes is one of the first entertainers to join on in the 1940s after world war ii. we have all of the performances this entire summer. we first started off with fleet week rocking the fleet and then we began with military service men and women and veterans and now next week on the fourth of july, we'll be performing at the washington national team, so exciting. ainsley: i've got to tell you, i have so many friends and family in new york. so much to see in the city but hands down every time the first place they want to go is see the rockettes. it really is so true, and i think you guys also represented patriotism and pride for your country, and you see it here in your beautiful outfits. >> i'm so proud to be part of
6:40 am
this legendary line going on for so long. and now all of the strength of uso, it's great to have the support. >> yeah. he was a sergeant in the army. >> we want to see you guys kick, but can you give abby some -- abby: i am pregnant in a short dress, so i have to be careful here. >> get over there in the middle. abby: it could be dangerous. >> absolutely. together. >> come on in. we're first going to start in a double, so we're going to pop our tow and then kick our right. so we're going to bring it all the way with our tow to the knee. >> i thought you were on the left. >> tow and knee. kick it out together and again. >> this is what i do at home
6:41 am
and music. >> you did more than eight. i got into it. abby: i can't wait to watch this video later because i can't see them. >> thank you. >> thank you, guys, and thanks for everything that you're doing. >> thank you so much. >> we know pete like it is to eat. constantly throughout the show. but can he beat nathan's hot dog eating champion joey chestnut? they're both here live. we're going to teach. abby: i cannot wait for this. but first, let's check in david asmand of what's coming up? >> hey, guys. stocks and the economy rocking the first half of the year. but if congress can't get anything done with health care and tax cuts, will all of that change? why some say cancel the recess and get to work.
6:42 am

6:47 am
trying to discredit at all? >> i think the democratic party needs to establish at the point, to win elections and the state is also to win elections, and we're not winning elections. so to answer your question, i would say we have a party leadership right now that many people find has been coming effective, old, whatever you want to call it, and a cheerleader issue, i guess. cheerleading issue like this is certainly valuable to distract from some of the ineptitude that we've seen and for people who are actually paying attention like you and me, it's frustrating because there is a lot that we could be doing to build the party, to find new, fresh faces, leaders, bring them up, but we're not. we're relying on the same old, same old anywhere. pete: that's a pretty sensible analysis, indeed.
6:48 am
but i want to ask you about the collusion between the mainstream media and the democratic party because there's been a lot of fake news exposed, a lot of criticism of this president, and a lot of it comes from the media. i want to play a tweet on the screen that president trump put out just this morning. he said i'm extremely
6:49 am
pete: the democratic party and the so-called mainstream media, you acknowledge they are effectively colluding. >> i mean, i would say that the republican party and the democratic party are probably pitching the press today on stories about the health care bill and stories about, you know, a number of issues that they see as priority that they need to get out there to the american people to the networks that trust the news. if the parties didn't communicate it all with the pres -- >> well, sure. >> it seems the other extreme of that would be counterproductive as well. pete: it somes only one side seems to get printed. so far special elections, as you have understanding don't go toward democrat. do you have faith that the democratic party is going to learn anything at all, move away from this resist movement that has proven to be effective and actually run on something that relates the voters? or are they going to continue to resist their way to 2018
6:50 am
and lose at the ballot box? >> i think that resistance is a popular brand, generally, amongst the far left in particular. but it doesn't have -- it has very, you know, sort of profoundly negative implications when it comes to, you know, moving on capitol hill. so resistance is great, it's a great word, a great hashtag, but we need to find who ourselves are. other than the guy who hates trump every day. and what that goes back to ultimately is the middle class, in my opinion. the democratic party -- the middle class used to identify with a democratic party overwhelmingly more than they identified with the republican party. that's collapse over the last 30 years. pete: we have to leave it right there. i just. to complement you. if the democratic party listened to you, they would make some of the changes they really need to to make. thank you very much for joining. >> thank you.
