3:02 am
pete: nobody understanding why. clayton: saturday morning quiet ease in to the weekend like an old man getting to know a hot bath. [laughter] not anymore on this show. pete: get some expresso going and join us this morning. abby: big four hours ahead. big news this morning is a new chief of staff in the white house. you have general john kelly now replacing reince priebus as white house chief of staff, hoping to get things a little bit more in order. i mean, just to give you a sense of his background, take a look at this, he is a retired four star general. he served three tours in iraq. new world being the current world of department of homeland security. former commander of u.s. southern command. well versed in the way of d.c. former aide to gates and panetta at the defense department and obviously comfortable on both sides of the aisle. quite a resume, clayton. clayton: let's dive into the chief of staff position a little bit. it's an interesting choice. he comes from a military background as you can attest, the order of command. there is an orderly procedure for everything in the
3:03 am
military. this white house has not been orderly. and reince priebus has certainly not had access to the schedule. that was the difficulty for reince priebus. he is in charge of the schedule. he was never given access to the schedule. pete: as much as there is order in the military. the military knows how to manage disorder and chaos in combat. come in on deployment, establish leadership, chain of command to your point and understand a complex battlefield. the nice part about general kelly first of all, serious guy, a patriot, who is not going to put his own political interests in front of the country. there is factions in this white house. tell me which faction john kelly is in. he is in none of these factions. abby: great point. pete: i want to leak this. what's the best interest of the agenda that we were elected to pursue and how do we go about pursuing it. abby: also been reported that he has taken some convincing. that president trump has wanted this guy to lead the white house or to help get things in order for some time. and, also, he was convinced by members of his family. i have been through this
3:04 am
myself on campaigns. it's just like in the white house you have got a lot of competenning factions as you said, pete, a lot of egos running around. a lot of people are about themselves. finally president trump was like i need to get people around me that are loyal to this country. pete: absolutely. abby: we have got to get to the bottom of these leaks. clayton, that's one of the problems they are facing. clayton: there is the inside camp and outside camp. reince priebus was fired because he was part of the outside camp. pete: sean spicer same thing. clayton: did he get control of this and wrap his hands around this and manage this sort of chaos in the schedule. will they give him enough leeway, a wide enough berth to control that schedule as the white house chief of staff? pete: that remains to be seen. john kelly spent enough time with this president to understand his management style. he is not running into a military operation. the white house operates differently. president trump operates differently. they feel -- understand, this
3:05 am
is a disruptive presidency that's doing things differently. when is the last time we had a four-star general as a chief of staff. there is whole another precedent there. he needed right-hand man he knew he could trust. the rnc types are out and loyalists are in. you are seeing fighters. you want people fight to the finish and be loyal to this president. abby: maybe not loyalists from the very beginning with president trump. generals, there is a level of discipline. there is a level of love for this country and willingness to do whatever you can to make it better. i think that is -- the president feels this sort of trust being surrounded by generals, right? you have noticed he has kept them for a number of key roles. he loved that they are tough and loves that they're going to be loyal to him and people -- clayton: also seemed like this week catch them flat footed making pronouncements on twitter surprised by. leeway back and forth, i don't know. last night, hannity has exit interviews. every time someone is fired
3:06 am
from the white house, they go right to hannity to speak. and reince priebus did his exit interview last night on the hannity program and he had this to say about serving the president. listen. >> i'm going to be on team trump all the time. i will always be out there trying to help the president advance his goals, support him as a friend, too. and that's the other part of the job that people don't realize. you actually become friends. you know, when you go through thick and thin together you get to know people really well. he is a good man. i was honored to be able to serving him. i feel good about the fact that he is making a change that makes him comfortable with moving forward. we had a good talk yesterday. i resigned. he accepted it. and then we sort of working together and talking quite a few times about who would be a great pick to come in here and be the chief of staff and i can't think of anyone better than a four star general john kelly. clayton: gracious, gray, in that. he is the shortest serving white house chief of staff in
3:07 am
u.s. history. abby: in modern history. sean hannity asked about these leaks. are you a part of these leaks. reince priebus continued to deny that. i'm curious to get to the bottom of this. a lot of people are too. we have a lost of guests on this show. i would love to ask kellyanne conway about that today. we all heard what scaramucci said three days ago hitting reince priebus. testing the waters here how hard he could get to let people know he was the leaker. pete: ironically the only thing that hasn't leaked in this white house in the recent week was the resignation of reince priebus and happened the day before but didn't come out until 5:00 on friday i'm just saying. clayton: kellyanne conway is going to be on the show a little bit later, she has the tendency of being on the show we ask her is anyone going to be fired and suddenly a week later somebody is fired. we will get to the bottom of that she has new advice to the white house. don't treat the president as a peer. listen. >> mr. trump offered me the
3:08 am
campaign management position. it was a friday, and we had a conversation at his initiation. i said to him before we left the office, i would like to say, mr. trump, i will never address you by first name and i don't consider myself your pier. i do think it's important to set up that level of deference and humility. general a secretary who is clearly your senior. your superior. i think it's very important that people not treat elected officials like the president and the vice president as their piers. pete: being made general kelly is not a pier. the president is the president. he has immense respect for what general kelly has done. what he has accomplished at dhs like focusing laser beam on the initiative. hasn't tried to raise his profile or drive a political agenda. sees him as someone who will come in and focus on what did we promise on the campaign trail and how do we get it done. abby: giving advice what
3:09 am
wasn't done as well as what could have. maybe he did treat president trump too much like a friend and too much like a pier. if there is anything i know about the military. they have respect for certain levels of sproirt. if you are serving the commander-in-chief i have no doubt that general john kelly will treat him not as a pier but as a boss. pete: treat him as necessary sir, this is why this might be a problem or this is why this person may be coming a problem. no one is going to control the president. i think is he going to keep fighting and punching. that's why his people love him. seriously. general they is going to be able to say a little bit more directly this is what we need to do to make things happen. clayton: we have a jam packed show for you. is this the further weeding out of this outside camp? we have kellyanne conway, advisor to the president and general jack keane on how john kelly's role will play in this white house. fascinating stuff. abby: it was a big news day yesterday. do you know who can thank the president for this is
3:10 am
republicans in congress. he really veered the conversation away from them. clayton: after that disaster. abby: obviously the news we were just talking about. but, also, he visited his home state of new york and vowed to end illegal immigrant gang violence to a speech to the long island police yesterday. you see the long island police clapping behind him. take a listen to just some of that. >> we're going to destroy the vile criminal cartel ms-13 and many other gangs. but ms-13 is particularly violent. they don't like shooting people because it's too quick, it's too fast. they kip, they extort, they rape and they rob. they prey on children. they shouldn't be here. but i have a simple message today for every gang member and criminal alien that are threatening so violently our people. we will find you, we will arrest you, we will jail you,
3:11 am
and we will deport you. pete: this is a sweet spot for the president. he got a reception from the cops and dig at de blasio. he didn't name him by name but the cops went nuts when they dug him. very effective. he will be out in west virginia as well. maybe the backyard of joe manchin who knows. going to the people directly, is effective. the cops feel like he has their back and that matters. clayton: attorney general sessions has been leading the charge on this and going after this gang violence and ms-13, part of his initiative there interesting subtext to all of this. abby: we're going to have parents on today, a really sad story. they lost their young girl to ms-13. we're going to talk to the parents about -- they were at that speech yesterday, what they thought of that and just what they have been going through. >> the advice they have for that community. pete: the speech was if you are wake u. i invite these types of people in your country. we have to be strong. again, it's a theme that
3:12 am
brought him to the white house. abby: turning to other headlines we are following. puck believe it therif you can s warning that kim jong un's nuclear arsenal may be able to reach cities like denver, new york, or chicago. it's the rogue nation's second missile launch this month. u.s. and south military responded by launching missiles as a show of force off the south korean coast. we are learning president trump will sign new sanctions against russia. we have all been seeing what he will do here. passing in both houses and aims to punish moscow for meddling in the 2016 election. russia is ordering the u.s. now to cut hundreds of diplomatic staff in moscow and seizing at least two u.s. diplomatic properties. besides russia, the bill hands down economic sanctions on iran and north korea. also this: next week president trump returns to the people who helped make him our
3:13 am
commander-in-chief. he will hold a rally thursday in west virginia. as you said, pete, a state he won on election day with nearly 70% of the vote. the president was in the mount state last week where he gave a speech at the boy scout jam jm borjamboree. pete: what's the likely to get democrats to come on board with anything. they remain a unicorn that democrats are going to work. clayton: bill clinton won west virginia. seems like a long time ago. pete: coming up, our next guest has a wisconsin connection with reince priebus. said a change of chief of staff was not necessary. what is does congressman sean duffy thing this morning. we ask him necessary. clayton: the next presidential election is still three and a half years away. one democrat already jumping in the race. who is it? we will tell you coming up. you won't guess it ♪ who are you ♪ who, who, who?

what, what? what?
3:17 am
pete: welcome back, a fox news alert. big changes at the white house general john kelly replaces reince priebus. abby: what does the change mean for the trump administration and agenda moving forward? clayton: joining us for reaction is congressman sean duffy. nice to have you on the show this morning. >> hey, it's good to be on with you guys. good morning. clayton: there is a lot of questions this morning about john kelly in this new role there has been a number of stories that suggest reince priebus never given really access to the schedule to actually one run the white house. do you think that john kelly will get access and be able to run this white house effectively? >> so i think you have to look at the transition that's made. donald trump is not afraid to transition out his team. we saw that in the campaign. we now saw it in the white house. reince priebus politico, did
3:18 am
effective job since 2011, building up the rnc and helping us as republicans take the senate and the presidency. and he was able to make the political transition for the president. now you are seeing some leaks happen and i think the president wants to go from politico now to general to start tightening up the ship a little bit. i think the president has a different view on where he wants to go in the white house. and reince did incredibly good job. a lot of the rumors taking place about access to calendars and the palace intrigue, i think a lot of those stories were wrong. i have talked a lot to reince. you know, he and the president were hand in glove on all of these issues over the last seven months in the white house. pete: congressman, in addition to that this week, we saw the healthcare bill in the senate go down. the house is now going out for a five-week recess. and it doesn't seem like so many of the things that republicans expected this congress to do have gotten done. what's your message to those senate republicans, specifically the three that
3:19 am
voted against this -- even the weak skinny bill and how about house republicans on actually making headway on tax reform? >> so, first off, we have just gone back on recess. we work in our districts. we passed 200 bills that right now sit in the senate waiting for them to pass. we have actually passed healthcare and the senate can't act. i'm so frustrated because my constituents in my district have skyrocketing healthcare costs. they can't pay the deductibles on the insurance that they have. and a senate that doesn't act. abby: why aren't the two working more together then. you talk about the house getting more done than the senate. why aren't the house and senate leaders working for together to figure out if they can get a bill passed in both houses? >> this is so simple. because the senate has a stupid filibuster rule. so they are trying to craft healthcare reform with all these guardrails of budget reconciliation which are the rules of this -- these 60 votes that the senate needs.
3:20 am
if you could blow open healthcare reform, and do competition across state lines and tort reforms as well as tax reform inside of obamacare, you could possibly get a deal. but when you use budget reconciliation, it doesn't work. it makes the senate so darn dysfunctional that we can't even partner with them. so i think this is the first time, when america looks at the government, they say the congress. right now we get it. it's not the house. it's the senate that's dysfunctional and can't get its act together. i'm an average day american who sits on obamacare with my family and am red hot mad that they can't get their job done. as you mentioned, we have had seven years. they have had seven months to come together to get a plan. and we sit back now and we shrug our shoulders and go we don't know where healthcare goes from here? incredibly disappointing. clayton: and now they are taking a recess. all right, congressman. thank you so much for joining us. abby: good to see you this
3:21 am

3:26 am
it on tv our own correspondent todd piro was at the event and he joins us now. todd: good morning, guys. it was very inspirational and i look at it through this prism. these brave men and women are all paid to do a job. at the end of the day, much like sports, whether you have that coach who gets behind you and motivates you and gives a speech like president trump gave yesterday. it does something to the morale of these troops especially after what many of them say was the last eight years. i was able to get reaction from some of our brave men and women in blue including vincent demarco who was a guest on "fox & friends" this week. so when you hear a speech like that from the president, what are you thinking? >> it's emotional because i'm a law enforcement officer. you heard the crowd. a lot of law enforcement in here. this is what they needed to hear this. is good for morale. >> there are times when you really feel like no one has got your back. everyone in that room you could feel the energy. the energy was unbelievable. it was outstanding. and we just couldn't believe that he was there addressing us. todd: when you hear a speech like that, what does it mean
3:27 am
to somebody like yourself in law enforcement? >> it means that maybe somebody is going to open the door and let cops do their job. what you're supposed to do. we're not social workers. i'm not interested in the problems that they have, when they were born, i'm interested in keeping the streets safe. the past administration was not a friend of law enforcement. as a matter of fact, i would say the last administration for eight years, they hindered law enforcement. todd: a number of critics outside protesting said the president is using ms-13 as propaganda. how do you respond to that? >> it's not propaganda when we have 17 people who have been killed in the last year and a half by ms-13. i don't know how that's propaganda. >> it doesn't matter what your political affiliation is. do you really want those type of people in your community? do you think that ms-13 cares whether you are on this side of the aisle or that side of the aisle? seriously.
3:28 am
todd: you heard that focus of propaganda. we spoke to a number of protesters yesterday. and many of them had the view that president trump was merely using ms-13 as a pretext by which to go after all immigrants. and i think there is such a disconnect in the knowledge as to what ms-13 does. we had one guy says i don't really know about them but i just think it's wrong. really? you have heard each of these law enforcement individuals say this is a severe threat to our communities here in the u.s. president trump is trying to go after them and yet they are viewing this as merely campaign propaganda. it's unreal. pete: a lot of the rhetoric was classic trump. rough guys, holding their head when they get in the car. i don't care if you are hold their head when they get in the car because they are butchering people. classic stuff. abby: thanks, todd. clayton: brand new questions about fusion g.p.s. company behind fake trump dossier.

abby: we now want to bring in ned ryun former presidential writer under george w. bush. good to have you on with us. happy saturday. >> happy saturday to you guys. good to be back with you. abby: we are all talking about this news that came out 5:00 p.m. yesterday on friday night per usual. john kelly now replacing reince priebus as the new white house chief of staff. ned, you've been on our show a number of times now, and you have been begging the white house this shakeup. you say something desperately needed to happen here. is this the right change? >> well, i mean, let's look at this. general kelly, a four star marine general coming in, and let's be fair to reince, he did the best that he could. he came in. he was very gracious last night. now you have got a new sheriff in town four star marine general. this thing coming in on monday saying we are going to have discipline. we're going to have discipline on the message and narrative.
3:34 am
discipline on the decision making and we're going to have team discipline. you are on president trump's team. you are not on your own team. we're going to have discipline on actually pushing forward the agenda that president trump ran on, not your own personal agenda. so, again, the theme is going to be discipline, and he has a great body of work. the thing that is encouraging to me abby is, in his shorten you're as secretary of dhs he actually took president trump's campaign promises seriously. dropping over 50% previous year in the month-to-month previous year. and he also said, you know what? president trump said he was going to build a wall. he was driving through that process. trump wanted a wall. he was going to make it happen. the key thing i think general kelly is bring is, again, discipline. we are here to be on president trump's team, not your own. clayton: we all get his resume which is stellar. i think we all agree fantastic choice. however, it's the position and whether or not he will be given the ability to show
3:35 am
discipline in this white house. the criticism of reince priebus is that he didn't have access to the calendar. he couldn't actually marshall anything because he was given such a tight berth to move around in. you know from having meetings at the white house that sometimes you show up at the white house. there was nobody on the calendar. our own chris stirewalt had this to say about that whole mess. listen. >> you can't possibly be a successful chief of staff if you are not the chief of the staff. you're talking about a white house in which the president's daughter andson are top advisors. you are talking about a president who plays favorites. he has got a new communications director that apparently delights him. and so this guy gets a direct access to the president. and doesn't have to go through the chief of staff. reince priebus was not in a position to win because he had those problems. if you replicate the same problem set, it doesn't matter how good of a commander general kelly was if he is not given the requisite things to use to win. pete: wilwin.pete. clayton: will he be given the requisite things to win? >> will he be in power?
3:36 am
i think that's actually a very legitimate question. will he be empowered to truly be a chief of staff and be able to manage the calendar, be able to manage the various staff and say at the end of the day, the chain of command as you report to the chief of staff, who ultimately reports to the president. so that is a key question. and my hope is that trump has looked over the last six months and gone hey, we have made some strides on some things. other things could have been done a lot better. i'm going to empower general kelly to truly be this powerful chief of staff. because, at the end of the day, this is about getting an agenda through. it's not about people's personal agenda. it's not about all these little things that have been going on. it's about how can he be successful? i believe in the president's agenda. unless it can be fully functional and clicking on all cylinders, i don't want to be having this conversation six months from now. i hope we can hit this reset button and have discipline and general kelly is empowered and move ahead. pete: maybe it's because he
3:37 am
has so many to russia. this should blow that narrative up as well. speaking part of that narrative is fusion g.p.s. this dossier that opposition researchers dug up supposedly about president trump proved to be bogus. there is more information now coming out about who may have paid for it, what the agenda was. ned, what do you know about that? >> well, so, it's interesting. thursday, there was testimony in front of the senate judiciary committee bill browder of hermitage capital was brought in front to testify about his involvement on imagin magnitski act and. they call themself a information firm they are disinformation firm. the question is who funded fusion g.p.s. work to put together this dossier. i know for a fact that senator chuck grassley is going to ask glen simpson this question. he had been fighting the subpoena. now he is going to plead the fifth. they have negotiated a deal. he will be speaking to the
3:38 am
senate jewish area committee behind closed doors. there were a couple interesting questions. lindsey graham asked browder was fusion g.p.s. working on behalf of russia and broad der's response was in the spring and summer of 2016, fusion gps was receiving indirectly money from senior russian government officials. the other thing that was interesting, too. and, again, we didn't get to the question. i suspect it's hillary clinton donors but these are just suspicions. the encouraging part to me, pete, was that there were two democrat senators, senator whitehouse and senator durbin that did actually ask do you know who is funding fusion g.p.s.' dossier? again, browder did not have those answers. but those questions will be asked of simpson. i want to remind the listeners this dossier started, really was the genesis for this fairy tale of trump/russia collusion. it was fed into the mainstream media intentionally so by fusion and steel who actually briefed according to "the
3:39 am

3:47 am
to the american people because american families right now are fighting for their salvation and they need republicans to deliver. and what is so infuriating to me is that the g.o.p. had six plus years to figure this out, to come up with a healthcare reform committee, to bring -- that could deliver a healthcare package that was good for the american people, that all republicans could agree on, and they couldn't do it. they couldn't get sorry, go ahead. abby: we ask oftentimes on the show republicans that very question. you have had all this time, why don't we have a bill that can actually pass? and i can't tell you how many times they will actually say we didn't think that donald trump was going to end up winning this election so we weren't prepared. and you think, you know, really? i mean, you had all of this time, it didn't matter who was president. if you guys had been on the campaign trail pumping this up saying we want to repeal obamacare, a lot of talk, sean, and clearly no action. >> that's exactly right. that's a bogus answer six plus
3:48 am
years under obama they voted 37 times for full repeal. what's different now? the only thing that's different now is that president obama is not in office and will not veto the bill. and republicans are now accountable for the bill's acceptance and delivery to the american people. and they are afraid to deliver. they are afraid to deliver -- they are a afraid of the repercussions. pete: how are someone viewing senator mccain who has wanted to repeal obamacare for years, has talked about it. yet, he walked onto the senate floor. i have a lot of respect for him. i have worked with him. i appreciate his service. everyone does. we hope he is doing well this morning. he walks out on that senate floor and gives a thumbs down to the vote. that is really a thumbs up to keeping obamacare. what does that say to people who keep reelecting folks like him and senator mu murkowski and susan collins? >> senator mccain is someone i have looked up to for a long time. no question he and the other
3:49 am
two senate looked down to the people who needed them the most. the bottom line is that if you are running and have the honor to represent this country in the halls of congress, then you do what you say you are going to do. and senator mccain campaigned on repeal and replace. gave speech after speech. campaign ad after campaign ad saying that was what he was going to do. and when the time came to deliver, he did not deliver. and a couple years from now when there is an election, the american people aren't going to remember the nuts and bolts of this bill and why it was voted for or against. they are going to remember that the republican party, the people that they entrusted with the trajectory of this country moving forward failed them. that is going to have dire consequences for this country moving forward. clayton: democrats were united in this. they didn't budge. >> always, always. i mean, always. abby: they were celebrating. >> i mean, when the democrats passed obamacare, they didn't care what the american people thought. in fact, the majority of the american people when they

voted on oklahoma didn't support it. obamacare passed without a single republican vote. when the democrats -- when the democrats work together, they circle their wagon and they get things done. the republican party, all they do is bicker and point their weapons at each other and never get anything accomplished when they actually have power. and i think it drives me and the american people who voted for republicans, it just drives us crazy. get something done. i mean, you have only got a small window here before the next election cycle. i would like them to get healthcare reform finished. abby: well, get something done, sean, if they want to win an election. >> please do something. listen, to the president, this is when you need leadership most. when the chips are down. when the chips are down, you need the president to step up to show leadership, to show courage, and to show conviction and hold fast on his vision for healthcare reform. that is where his focus should be right now. clayton: run every chamber of government right now so they

4:02 am
this morning. pete: we will cue that up next hour. stick around and you will hear it. clayton: want to bring in former trump campaign manager corey lewandowski. thank god, corey, you are here on a day we have nothing to talk about at all. thank you for joining us this morning. >> another quiet news week in washington. clayton: that's right. you have been talking over the past few weeks on our show about these two sort of camps that maybe exist within the white house. sort of the outside camp and the inside camp. you said over the weeks that they need to get on the same page. if they're going to win, if they're going to get the president's agenda through. was what we saw yesterday, the pushing out of reince priebus part of that getting on the same page? >> i think what the president wants to do is he wants a fresh start. he and general kelly are going to make a great combination. it's time to make sure and i think general kelly is going to do this, that everybody who is working in the administration is on the president's agenda. that means no more personal agendas, no more back fighting, no more back
4:03 am
stabbing. i think what you see with general kelly and with anthony scaramucci, these are the types of people that are going to tell you exactly where you stand and tell it right to your face. what that means is a new set of rules in the white house. it means that the president's agenda is first and foremost it means we need to get tax reform done. we need to get fracture spending done. clayton: do you think reince priebus was doing back stabbing? >> i don't think so. what i do think is that what we have seen, unfortunately, over the last six months is that there have been individuals working in the white house who we know have been leaking information. we don't know who those individuals are. but there has been no recourse for those leaks. and i think that's all going to change now. and what i have said a hundred times, if you are not on the president's team, is you should not be in the administration. there is only one agenda, and it's the president's agenda. abby: it's almost like you are saying though reince priebus was not 110% on the president's team. >> no, no. what i'm saying is reince's job was a very difficult one. i understand it probably
4:04 am
better than anybody. because i spent 18 months next to an individual who was the hardest working person in the world. i understand how difficult that job is. but, when you bring in new leadership, and they take a fresh pepper perspective of the individuals in the building and make assessment who is and is not working and the right people gives unique opportunity to start fresh and i think that's very important. abby: what advice do you have for kellyanne conway. she was on last night and she says i have known him for years. you can't treat him as a peer. he is the boss. you know him as well. what advice do you have for general kelly coming in as chief of staff. >> kellyanne is exactly right. most of the people in the building who have known the president for a long time call him the boss. that's how they affectionately refer to him as. he is the final decisionmaker. he is not an equal amongst any. he is clearly the person -- he is the president of the united states. 60 million people voted for him because he is the leader. what you have to understand is he has no contemporaries in the building.
4:05 am
is he a final decisionmaker. when you bring a president, a decision that needs to be made, you may or may not agree with his decision. you implement what the president asks because that's what he been elected to do. pete: general takes the hymn monday morning as the new chief of staff. the senate failed to pass the bill they promised the country they would pass. the republicans can't get out of their own way in the senate. what is the agenda in this white house starting next week with this fresh start? where do they focus first? is it on the leaks? is it internally? or is it on driving the agenda the president wants to see happen? >> i think it's a multipronged attack. the reason for that is because you have to have all of the things working together in a sinnergistic faction. we need to cut the corporate tax rate. provide tax relief for middle class working families. maybe double their deductions. priority of the administration on capitol hill. pete: is there something that
4:06 am
distinctly needs to change in the tone or approach from the way this chief of staff operates? >> you may remember this but general kelly actually served a stent as liaison on capitol hill. he has a number of relationships there he has s. a strong leader. he has relationships on the hill and i think he is going to exercise those relationships to get the president's agenda done. is he also going to bring in, look at the new team, anthony scaramucci sarah huckabee sanders coming on board as new press secretary. new opportunity for a fresh start. the administration suffered a set back last week. you also have to hold these republicans who have voted for seven years for repeal of obamacare and had you three of them go by the wayside. where is holding them to the fire? you need to be able to do this because the president pledged this to the american people and we need to fulfill that promise. clayton: let's talk a little bit about the chain of command, corey as a military man general john kelly is used it that or did ily chain of command. reince priebus and the white house and the way he was leading things is as chief of staff he didn't have access to
4:07 am
the calendar. he didn't control anything so people just rolled into the white house. there was no order to it. will john kelly be given that control that he needs in order to control that message and lead this white house in that way. >> that's a question only the president can determine. but i can tell you this: i know the president has an enormous amount of faith in general kelly and if you look at the work that he has done at the department of homeland security with border crossings down 70% and letting our ice agents actually do their job, the president knows he will bring that same resolve to the white house. but, look, i'm not a fan of isolating the president off. there has to be a procedure, of course. but the president has operated in a manner where he takes advice and counsel from a number of people. and i think it's important, particularly when you are in that bubble of information that people have the opportunity to continue to talk to the president about issues that are important. should general kelly be brought into those discussions? of course they are. but i don't believe in isolating any individual so that only one person provides information. abby: look. it's also very normal for
4:08 am
durations, you look throughout history changes happen. it just takes some time to figure out exactly the right team you want to put around you. even when you have the right team things change and you bring people on and new voices in the fold. corey, have you been talked about a lot about joining the administration. are more changes coming? could you be part of that? would you be part of it? >> i have said this very publicly and very candidly. i love what i do on the outside. i'm an un apologetic supporter of this administration. i will do anything can i to help them move their agenda forward because it's the right agenda for america. if the opportunity presented itself and the president said corey i would like you to come and move that agenda forward and good for my family, i would very much consider that. pete: speaking of agendas, on other networks this morning you are probably hearing the narrative of russian collusion. find connection of general kelly to russia, i'm sure. none of which exists. in fact, i think this appointment is do more to put a nell in the coffin of that whole fallacy.
4:09 am
the president intends to sign the bill penalties against russia as well as iran and north korea. how significant is that and when will the narrative of this russian collusion finally be dead? >> you are the the only network that's actually talking about what's really going on with fusion g.p.s. the former state department employees and hillary clinton supporters who are actually part of this false dossier. no other network wants to talk about this because it doesn't fit their narrative. bottom line was there was no collusion, no coordination, no cooperation. we have seen this now "the washington post editorial did a story yesterday, one published that said jared kushner's narrative of being involved with russia has completely fallen apart. he has provided his testimony. stayed longer than needed to answer any questions so that there was no ambiguity here. this is done. that's not what the media wants to talk about. the president is going to sign the sanctions bill. he and his team worked to make it as strong as possible. he is going to sign that against russia because it's in the best interest of the american people which is what the president is there to do. it's time to put russia behind
4:10 am
us. it's time to reign in bob mueller to make sure that his focus is only on was there any cooperation or collusion with russia and the outcome of the election. there has been no evidence of this whatsoever. so once the investigation is completed, bob mueller should probably go by the wayside. pete: i have heard may like russian dressing. >> i think as close general kelly got to russia in iraq destroying baghdad. when he took baghdad that's where he was. okay? i don't think there is any questions about the great general coming in as the chief of staff and his resolve either. abby: corey lewandowski always good to have you on. thanks so much. >> thank you. abby: turning now to other headlines we are following. starting with a fox news alert. north korea is launching its longest range missile possibly capable of striking anywhere in the mainland. kim jong un's nuclear arsenal may be able to reach cities like denver, new york, and chicago. it's the rogue nation's second missile launch this month. the u.s. and south korean military responding by

♪ >> you can't possibly be a successful chief of staff if you are not the chief of the staff. you're talking about a white house in which the president's daughter and son-in-law are top advisors. you're talking about a president who plays favorites. he has got a new communications director that apparently delights him. and so this guy gets a direct access to the president and doesn't have to go through the chief of staff. reince priebus was not in a position to win because he had those problems. if you replicate the same problem set it doesn't matter how good of a commander general kelly was if he is not given the requisite things he needs to win. clayton: joining me now former
4:17 am
vice chief of staff general jack keane, former general. nice to see you,. >> thank you, clayton. clayton: past few hours we have been talking about talking about remarkable leadership at the homeland security. to chris stirewalt's point. i think he brings up a great point and maybe the reason reince priebus failed he didn't really have access to being able to control the white house. had you people able to book, walk right into the oval office. you don't have people going through him to book things on the calendar. will general kelly be able to reign this in? what do you say? >> well, most people talk about this have never ever done it kelly probably likely has done this many times. i was a chief of staff to a principle three times. and as the commanding general i had three chiefs of staff work for me. it's not a question of being a monitor or a gate keeper. it's a question of driving, one, the agenda, making certain that that agenda is
4:18 am
coordinated. driving a calendar to be sure. and there will always be people that need one-on-one access with the principle and you don't have to be there. if you are going to be there for all of that you will never get your own job done. let's take some examples, kushner, maybe ivanka, maybe bannon, maybe mcmasters, they need one-on-one access. what kelly needs is when they walk out of that office, they come by and tell him hey, this is what the boss said so he understands if any decisions were made if there is something that's different that's happening as a result of it, just keep him informed. he drives the whole agenda. he doesn't sit on top of it and be a gate keeper as people are talking about. the president has to be the president. he has to be his own operating style. wants to have one-on-one meetings with scaramucci. that's fine. kelly is not going to sit there and monitor that meeting. he has his own job to do. that's the way do you it he is going to bring leadership to that position. leadership is what i'm saying.
4:19 am
clayton: we had corey lewandowski on the show earlier. no more of this personal agenda stuff in this white house. he was alluding to reince priebus and others who have been sort of ousted having their own agenda. not driving the president's agenda. do you think now we're going to see under john kelly's chief of staff leadership the president's agenda moving forward? >> well, he can't change the personalities of the people that are there. the divisiveness there and they are working against each other. you know, some of that will still be in residence. he can cush it probably to a certain degree. there is more divisiveness than we likely have seen compared to other administrations. and that's pretty unfortunate. it doesn't serve the president very well. he will help just because of his strength of his personality in dealing with that look it, he is taking -- let's just put it right out there, the super star of his cabinet. kelly is the principle. he has his own chief of staff. he has a huge staff working for him. he has tens of thousands of people.
4:20 am
what he is doing is giving all of that up to become a staff person himself. he is doing that out of loyalty and devotion to the president. that's testimony to who he is, i think, and i think he is going to serve the president very well. clayton: he has to deal with intractable congress though. can he get anything done with a republican controlled congress that seems to be in total disarray. >> i don't think kelly by himself is going to have that kind of impact on the congress. that's asking too much of the position. we have been watching this congress, you know, for this last week, and the president couldn't move it. and mcconnell couldn't move it and kelly wouldn't be able to move it, either. so i think we're going too much of him. in terms of coordinating with the congress and making certain they understand where the president is on things, that's very important. clayton: very important. general jack keane, great to see you this morning. thank you so much for joining us and fantastic perspective on the chief of staff position. we thank you so much. >> good talking to you, clayton.

pete: welcome back to "fox & friends." the president is up early this morning and sending out a couple tweets in reaction to this week's event. he tweeted this just moments ago: a very outdated filibuster rule must go. budget reconciliation is killing ours, the republicans, in the senate. mitch mcconnell go to 51 votes now and win. it is time. abby: he continues on the republicans in the senate will never win if they don't go to a 51 vote majority now. they look like fools and are just wasting time. pete: i think we can see where the frustration is here. while the white house may move
4:36 am
on to tax reform. clearly think think there will be a -- abby: we had sean duffy on why can't the house and the senate come together he said because it's because of the filibuster. pete: 200 house bills sitting and waiting in the senate that can't move because of outdated filibuster rule. clayton: let's bring in nypd officer and host of the podcast republican. dan bongino. there is a lot of chaos discord in congress. six years, seven years to try to get something done. congressman duffy seemed exasperated earlier on our show. can they get anything done going forward? >> no. i mean, that's the simple answer. like what's the point anymore? i will tell you why we can't get anything done. because what's the point of the republican party, guys? if the republican party is a branding mechanism, right? that's what it means? republican, that people can go into the booth, they can look for who the republican is. and that republican is supposed to stand for a set of values. those values have been flushed down the toyota bowl.
4:37 am
what's the point. they can't get taxes cut and obamacare repealed. it is feckless. i was never a third party guy. i wrote articles against it even i'm starting to think that may be the only path forward because the republicans, are frankly useless. abby: you had the republicans yeah, they have the power now. they run the house, the senate, you have the president in charge, the republican. but the democrats, they are cheering at the same time. they wanted this to just blow up in everyone's face. who are the adults running things on capitol hill? >> you know, it's a great point. there are some good people. i can personally attest to the values and the character of people like mike lee and ted cruz. i'm not like name-dropping or anything. having run for office i had had the pleasure of meeting some of these fine men. unfortunately, that's a very small crew of people. if you were to take a group of people like that and some principled people in congress thomasy, the louie gohmerts and jim jordan's you could start a credible third party movement.
4:38 am
some people are hesitant. well, we could split the vote. i ask you this. this is the question i have for you people who say that, what has not splitting the vote done for you. we have won the vote everywhere and we're still losing. pete: that's why you have seen call force procedure to change because it's deadlocked and no one is willing to show courage ultimately when it matters the most. you have talked about adults on capitol hill. one of those who is not adult on capitol hill is a senator barbara lee she tweeted this yesterday in response to general john kelly being appointed. by putting general john kelly in charge president trump is militarizing the white house and putting our executive branch in the hands of an extremist. so a marine corps veteran with three tours who has led at the highest level is now a militarization of the white house? >> you know, i have to till, even for the far left, this is a new low. when i saw this tweet yesterday, i had to double exek it. she had the blue checkmark so i said this is real? i thought this was the onion
4:39 am
or one of those -- i said no one would be dumb enough to tweet something so insulting to the best of all of us, our military men and women. you know, unfortunately, guys, have you seen this growing strain of antimilitary attitude on the far left. it's not all democrats. i want to be clear on that. most democrats love and respect their military. the far left have you seen this growing virus of antimilitary rhetoric coming out. i don't get it. is it that they seem them as some empirical force out of "star wars"? this is the best men and women we have who are dedicated themselves to our country. this congresswoman seriously should have resigned yesterday and fired immediately the person who sent out that tweet. if it was her, it's even worse. clayton: let's talk about democrats for a moment. we had the first democratic candidate, dan, for 2020 against president trump. and you ran against him for congress in 2014. we're talking about representative delaney. he just announced. there he is. abby: give us the scoop, dan.
4:40 am
>> yeah. listen, no republican knows john delaney better than me. let me just say this and i'm not trying to be captain bipartisan here. john delaney is a super nice guy. he really is i disagree with him ideologically. we always enjoyed each other's company. even though we disagreed on just about everything. i will give a little bit of a warning though on the trump team. you know i'm all for the president succeeding, i would not under estimate this guy. i made that mistake in maryland's sixth congressional district and he won that seat in enormous upset. he beat a guy named rob who was the golden boy of maryland politics. he is very wealthy. he is very ambitious. when you put him in front of a crowd he can be very convincing. abby: dan, i was going to say we have a bit of a campaign ad when you ran against him. >> the biggest problem with trump is that he is not focused on the future and he is not doing the things we need to do structurally to make our economy more competitive. abby: that was his ad now.
4:41 am
is he refusing up to go for 2020. >> yeah. i have never seen any candidate get in a presidential race three and a half years early. but he is a very nonconventional candidate. he is a moderate democrat. i almost beat him. we came within one point. we won on election day. horseshoes and hand grenades almost -- clayton: he is walking and talking infrastructure. look, front page of the "wall street journal" this week why president's infrastructure plan may be fizzled and not going to happen. so here is a guy talking about infrastructure, stuff that president trump promised and we don't see anything happening. >> yeah. infrastructure has been john delaney now first democratic candidate. that's been his baby for a long time. make no mistake, although i like him personally, his social positions are to the far left. is he antigun. is he proabortion. he doesn't align with any conservative values at all. and the bottom line is he hasn't taken any strong position on tax cuts either. which says to me is going to
4:42 am
align with the far left on tax hikes. so he may be portraying himself as a moderate but he is not. abby: by the way some republicans have some serious work to do. i think we can all agree on that. >> big time. big time. pete: thank you for joining us we appreciate your stark words as always. >> you got it, guys. pete: the white house vowing to crack down on leakers this morning. we are learning a top fbi lawyer is under investigation for leaking classified information to the media. sarah carter broke the story and she joins us next. clayton: plus coming up in a few minutes kellyanne conway will join us and mark steyn and geraldo rivera all here live on this jam packed saturday morning ♪ i want to start a fight ♪ so so what ♪ i'm still a rock star ♪ , right?

4:48 am
program; but, according to my sources, that is what they are looking at. abby: this is a problem. have you leakers from various agencies leaking stuff to the president. and that's all going out to us, the american people that in many times can be quite harmless for this country, for national security, for the president trying to, you know, crack down on his white house and focus on their agenda which has been incredibly complicated with these leaks. sarah, where does the investigation stand now? >> well, what we know so far is that he is under criminal -- allegedly under a criminal investigation with the department of justice. where it goes from there, whether the fbi goes public with this or the department of justice goes forward with this later, i think all depends on what's discovered and what is found. i think, abby, it goes to the bigger picture of leakers, right? i mean of this culture of leaking information which is national security related or whether it be on the president or somebody else. i mean, this culture ever leaking is a problem right now. and i think that's why we are seeing so many people talking about it effect the national security of our country and effects our republican generals. pete: sarah, you know our
4:49 am
attorney general got a tongue lashing about his own job in the last couple of weeks. >> he said he had renewed commitment going after leakers. is this ongoing investigation or is this part of dodge doj saying we are going to be pushing more adequately on the problem. >> yeah, pete. this looks like a bigger issue for the doj. within the week where expecting attorney general jeff sessions to come out and to make a big announcement. it will be a general announcement. i don't think it's going to focus specifically on baker or any specific topic. but it will focus on the general progress of the department of justice looking into leak investigations. >> and it's been reported that this general counsel, james baker is reportedly a close former fbi director james comey as well. is there a culture of leaking? abby: what the punishment would be, sarah. >> oh, it would be a severe punishment. the leaking of classified information is a felony. and it would require jail time and he would also be stripped of his license. this is a highly decorated
4:50 am
man. remember, these are just allegations right now. there is an ongoing investigation. he has been with the nsa, the cia. he has received some the highest awards of merit according to the people that i spoke with however, he was against a lot of these fisa searches. so it's -- this is just allegations and this is what we are hearing from our sources and which we believe to be true. we have reached out to the fbi and to the doj. gave them days to come back with comment and they declined. pete: important to note it's an ongoing investigation. abby: thanks for being with us. counselor to the president kellyanne conway joins us at the top of the hour. pete: but, first, want to upgrade your patio, well, skip fidel is here to help with options for every budget next on "fox & friends." ♪ ♪

great opportunity to reset the button in this white house. clayton: will he be allowed to be a big boy. chris stirewalt, i don't know if we have the sound, brian of chris stirewalt. net yet but we will get it. fascinating question he brought up on the show as the white house chief of staff you have to be able to be the chief of the staff. which is if people just want to blow past you and kind of go in and have have meetings with the president and they are not really on that calendar and not on the agenda and able to come out of those meetings and not relay what they discussed with the white house chief of staff, then it keeps that chief of staff isolated. abby: you know what though, clayton, i think a lot of it depends on the dynamic. i think we have kellyanne conway if we can bring in, if you haven't been listening about our conversation about the dynamic between the chief of staff, now john kelly and president trump. you were talking about this last night about being a peer and how you can't treat him like a peer but you look at somebody like john kelly and you look at his resume and sort of this man that's going to come in and hopefully get some things in order. talk to us about the dynamic the two of them will have?
5:07 am
he had the ability, to clayton's point, to have more control of things to actually get access to his schedule? >> yes. thank you for having me this morning. i think general secretary kelly will bring strength and discipline and put out without even saying so the dictum that loose lips sinks ships. people will think twice before they try to hurt each other, using colleague by using the press to do. so or thinking they are helping the president by conveying information that, perhaps, is not yet ripe for public disclosure or is in negotiation or conversation. and i believe that general kelly also preps somebody who is very deliberative and patient and strategic. we know our military is filled with people at the highest levels where, of course, he has served ably and honorably for decades. with men and women who subvert their own egos to the greater good and the greater mission. that's how we succeed as a
5:08 am
military. some of our toughest minds and toughest people and most spirited people serve in our u.s. military. and let me just make clear that is not because somebody right now is laying in bed typing. this stop. because that is not a comparison or a contrast to our outgoing chief of staff reince priebus who, as the president noted is a good man. we have accomplished a lot in the last six months even though we don't get credit in most places for that and the reince priebus tenure as the longest serving rnc chair really set the -- really set the table for the success of a 2016 republican nominee, beating the formidable hillary clinton because on his watch, the republican party had raised so much money, had improved their data and digital operations and had some significant wins on the board in the house and the senate and the state legislatures and the governorships. clayton: the question is about the leaks. >> many of us are very excited about this new inviolation fusion of energy and discipline. clayton: right. >> i can just speak for myself, even if that means
5:09 am
that there is more protocol, there is more pecking order and that there is less regular access in and out of the oval office, i think it's incredibly important, and, look, the world is a dangerous place, so much of what president trump and vice president pence discussed and learn and do every single day centers around national security and foreign policy. in his very shorten you're as homeland security secretary, general kelly has been able to help president trump effectuate so many major pieces of his platform, cracking down ms-13 gangs, getting the border wall funding, 1.6 billion just this week got very little coverage. clayton: right. >> going down to the border and standing there as general kelly has. clayton: he has impressive resume. kellyanne. >> of course we have 70% decline in illegal. clayton: can you answer the question about reince priebus? >> big things happen when secretary kelly and president trump and work together.
5:10 am
and we expect that continues. clayton: i don't know if you can hear us or not. we had problems before. the question about reince priebus and you maybe alluded to it. >> lost me completely. abby: i think she can't hear us. abby: i think that's why we both have been asking questions. and we seem like the jerks here. pete: called live television, ladies and gentleman. clayton: going to reset the plugs. what happens sometimes the chip monks eat through the power cords. reset, take a quick break and be right back after this commercial break and get right back with kellyanne conway. no, please, please, oh! ♪ (shrieks in terror) (heavy breathing and snorting) no, no. the running of the bulldogs? surprising. what's not surprising? how much money aleia saved by switching to geico.
5:11 am
fifteen minutes could save you fifteen percent or more.
5:12 am
5:13 am
♪ clayton: all right we got some
5:14 am
exterm minute nature iexextermi. we want to bring back in kellyanne conway she is able that hear us how. abby: hey kellyanne. >> i apologize because you were asking me questions and i couldn't hear you. abby: it's live tv. it's understandable. >> that doesn't stop me from talking. clayton: you were talking about general kelly's resume. you were telling us about you were hoping this would change some of the culture in the white house. maybe people won't run to the press and leak information. maybe this will cut down leaks in the white house? are you saying that you believe maybe reince priebus was responsible or helped or maybe looked the other way to some the leaks that were coming out of this white house? >> i am not saying that. and let me emphasize something the president has said repeatedly, publicly, and privately, the main concern are the intelligence and deep state and security leaks. this is what is imperiling our national security. again, if somebody from the chief of staff on in to the other agencies can be helpful in making sure that people
5:15 am
know that is a very dangerous prospect to continue leaking information, i mean, look at what's happened this week under the radar. have you got these over 100 unmasking requests by a former obama administration official according to a senate witness? have you all these other scandals piling up now. fusion g.p.s. in the end dossier is just a fancy french word for load the junk. we should know that it turns out allegedly this particular firm, fusion g.p.s. and glen simpson reportedly, according to a senate witness was also working for russia. and, of course, trying to run a sneer campaign against individuals and trying to hurt candidate trump. then you had, allegedly again, we'll see, you had obama administration official trying to unmask innocent men and women who were going to be part of the trump administration because they weren't expecting a result of his victory.
5:16 am
but i think this is why the russian percussion has amped down a little bit this week. it's not just because we have a new chief of staff or american hero's week or the healthcare reform. it's because the winds are really shifting here, aren't they, friends, that we actually may be talking more about russia in the context of how it hurts democratic interests and people aligned with the democratic party. so we will have to see on that. then have you got debbie wasserman shultz. people don't want to cover this. her i.t. advisor, who was not fired along with other people in february, and as the national review points out this morning in a must-read article, this could be more than just bank fraud. so let's read up, shall we? pete: we will see whether the so-called mainstream media takes a look at any of those things or charge ahead with witch-hunt russian collusion story. the president is up early this morning. five tweets pointed at senate republicans who could not get the job done who could not get even the skinny bill passed.
5:17 am
he is going after the process saying hey, the fact that you need 60, you should need 51 because democrats are holding you hostage and you can't pass anything. his fire pointed squarely at senate republicans. where does that go next? >> it is. but he is also saying that there are 8 democrats in any different configuration who are k. hold up the senate process and by extension our entire legislative agenda on any given moment. there are 25 defending their senate seats next year. and many of them in states that president trump carried in about ten of those states. five of the states he carried comfortably by significant double digits. so i would ask those senators, you know, beyond the pink hat now obstruction, resistance, it's not a bumper sticker, you are hurting america. because you are going to have to go home to your states and explain to your constituents why six and a half million americans decided to fork over $3 billion in taxes and penalties to the irs rather than get basic obamacare coverage. why if obamacare is not
5:18 am
repealed and replaced something better that by next year we will have over 1300 counties with one choice, which is no choice at all. and so i think the president is expressing the frustration of many americans who are giving the congress and the mainstream media very low approval ratings. far below the president wants approval rating by the way. because they see the process playing out. and they say do your job. this man has been there six short months. do your job. i know the president is -- we're not talking about politics and campaigns at all. but to the extent that he is allowed to go out there next year, he will be out there on getting us closer to those 60 senate seats. abby: you are right. mid terms will come up quickly. around the corner. if they were held today, i think it would be quite troubling for any of those republicans to win re-election based off where they stand right now and the failures with healthcare to the american people. where does this go from here? where does the president's agenda start on monday morning? you have got a new chief of staff. everyone is waiting for movement on tax reform for
5:19 am
infrastructure. what his role going to be with congress moving forward to hopefully get some things done? >> sure, let me give you a little peek behind the scenes. healthcare reform continues unabated because this is a president who has made that commitment. he intends to keep that commitment even if some senators and members of congress are not keeping that commitment. so, we are forging ahead. we know obamacare is hurting many people. have you heard secretary price and director mulvaney say the same thing. and anybody who thinks that donald trump and mike pence are going to let one small vote in the senate deter them from making good on the moral imperative to help the millions of americans who were lied to that they can keep their doctor, keep their plan and truly suffering and come to the white house to tell their stories of obamacare victims. then they forget who trump is. he is not going to let one senate vote stop him. he vanquished all types of governors and senators. he beat hillary clinton. he doesn't listen to people say this is left for dead, you're way behind. you will never recover. we never even listen to that language.
5:20 am
tanks reform -- he does but tax reform, too. this is very important. we are hopeful by fall we will get something that's fair and simpler. we have to stop spending billions and billions of dollars every year complying with the ridiculous unfair overly complicated tax code. and making our businesses more competitive to employ people. clayton: we are out of time and up against a hard break. i have got to ask you this real quick if i can. a couple weeks ago you said sean spicer not leaving the white house. last week you said reince priebus is not leaving the white house. who is not leaving this week? >> i won't say my name in there. given my prediction levels. i guess that i always give those answers saying well, what i said about sean was the president did not want him to leave after he hired a new communications director. which was true. but we honor those who have served and those who feel like -- in service for the greater cause for the country is elsewhere. most people will serve outside the white house and still be committed to the cause. and we know that that includes
5:21 am
sean and reince and many others. but, look, everybody has to make a decision that beginnings with the president and new chief of staff as to whom is best deployed inside the white house. i look forward to hearing from the general and new battle plan. pete: we have to leave it right there. abby: we will be back right after this. [grandma] you know, you can use that phone to call me. with my moderate to severe crohn's disease,... ...i kept looking for ways to manage my symptoms. i thought i was doing okay... then it hit me... ...managing was all i was doing. when i told my doctor,... ...i learned humira is for people who still have
5:22 am
symptoms of moderate to severe crohn's disease... ...even after trying other medications. in clinical studies,... the majority of people on humira... saw significant symptom relief... ...and many achieved remission. 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. just managing your symptoms? ask your gastroenterologist about humira. with humira, remission is possible.

driver slams into a fort worth. look at that that fort worth police officer finishing up a traffic stop when he was hit, thrown nearly 20 feet. incredibly he was able to walk away with only bumps and bruises. the driver has been charged. holy smokes. abby, pete? >> press secretary huck sarah huckabee sanders wrote read a letter. >> my name is dylann harbin but everybody calls me pickle. i'm 9 years old and you are my favorite president. i like you so much that i had a birthday about you. my cake was the shape of your head. you seem really nice can would he be friends? i'm happy to say that i directly spoke to the president, dylan, and he will be more than happy to be your friend. pete: joining us now is that young trump supporter dylann pickle harbin and his mom sue ann. good morning to you both. thanks for being here. dylann, do you mind if i call you pickle, too?
5:26 am
>> no? can he call you pickle? >> yeah. pete: what motivated you to write this letter to president trump? dylan, why did you write the letter? >> why did you write the letter to trump, honey? >> because i wanted him to be my friend. pete: very cool. abby: sue ann, did this all come from your son in were you helpful? did you help write this letter or was it in his own words. >> it was all him. he said he wanted to write it i said what do you want to ask him. he said well i just want to ask him to be my friend. i said you need to ask him little more than that he goes well okay, i will think about it. so, probably like a -- probably about a month, month and a half later he said okay i want to write it he wrote i it. pete: we are looking at photos from your birthday party and
5:27 am
birthday parties for 9-year-olds are really cool you had a trump themed birthday party which is awesome. a lot of kids write letters to the white house but not all of them get an answer from the president himself. what did you think when the heard the president had read your letter and wants to be your friend? >> what did you think, buddy? abby: sue ann, did he tell you anything after he heard he was his friend? >> he is pretty excited. his excitement is unbelievable. he kind of shy right now. yeah, he so excited. pete: were you told in advance that this was going to happen or was it a complete surprise? >> i'm sorry? >> were you told in advance that this would happen or was it a complete surprise. >> we were at complete surprise. we were at giants game they called before we went in the stadium. hi this is so and so from the white house. we are calling to let you know
5:28 am
that we received pickle's letter and they are going to read it at the press conference in about 20 minutes. abby: he says in the letter i don't know why people don't like you. you seem like, you know, a nice person. what i has the reaction been for his support for president trump young age throwing his birthday party around it i'm sure the kids' parents came by. what have they all said about his wanting to be friends with the president and the fact that he really likes him? >> it's actually been supportive from family and friends and stuff like that. it's a little shocking but all supportive. pete: dylann if you can or your mom can answer. why do they call you pickle? >> why do they call you pickle? abby: do you like pickles, dylan? >> yeah. abby: i do, too. i'm pregnant. i eat a full jar of pickles almost every day. maybe they should start calling me pickles, too. pete: my 4-year-old boone loves pickles.
5:29 am
he ate a plate full of pickles the other day so i understand your love. abby: did you take dylan out to trump rallies? where did his affection come from the president? was that from you? >> no. actually, it all started in the class. his 3rd grade teacher was teaching him all about the election because the election was coming up. so, they were -- they were teaching all about the election and his friend donald had the same name, so, he came home and voting for trump. and that was it. learned all about him. pete: the white house has invited you for a tour. is that something you guys might check out? >> definitely. >> yes. abby: especially if they serve pickles there. they better serve them, dylan, when you arrive at the white house. hopefully we'll get you guys back after you do a tour and get your reaction. pete: i can see it now pickles for pickle with the president. i think that could be a thing. we will see. abby: dylan and sue ann thank
5:30 am
you for being with us this morning. i have got a craving now. pete: good handwriting for a 9-year-old. remember kathy griffin's disgusting photo shoot with bloody mask. there is update from the comedian herself. abby: generagood to see you mar. ♪ walk this way. abby: great to have you in person ♪ walk this way ♪ walk this way ♪

afi sure had a lot on my mind. my 30-year marriage... ...my 3-month old business... plus...what if this happened again? 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
5:33 am
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. 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.
5:34 am
♪ clayton: what a morning. hey, president trump is up early tweeting. he thinks it's a morning, too. is he fired up about republicans. he said this: republicans in the senate will never win if they don't go for 51 vote majority now. they look like fools and are just wasting time. >> 8 democrats totally control the u.s. senate. many great republican bills will never pass like kate's law and complete healthcare. get smart. abby: goes on the senate democrats if ever given the chance they would switch to a 51 majority vote in a first minute. they are laughing at republicans. make change. pete: to get some commentary on this we are going to bring this author and columnist mark steyn. abby: he has some thoughts. pete: once went by the nickname pickle as well. >> i want a kid who has a three piece suit like pickles. that guy looks sharp. that vest, i would trade my kids in for a kid who wear as three piece suit. that's great. you got your warning, guys.
5:35 am
[laughter] pete: i think the president would like to trade in some republicans for some new ones in the senate. >> right. pete: what do you make he is going after them and the process this morning. >> they are empty three piece suits. that's the problem with the republicans in the senate. the republican base is tired of explanations as to why things can't be done. you know, mitch mcconnell is supposed to be the genius parliamentarian. he wrote -- the title of his book "is the long game." mcconnell is a genius he plays the long game. such a long game we will all be dead. [laughter] by the time he accomplishes anything. and that doesn't matter whether, you know, you are old wisdom and aged like me or pickle's age. the long game is too long on mcconnell's terms and republicans are tired of being told why nothing gets done. abby: should they give it up then at this point? how many times they have tried? at what point do you say we have got to focus on things that actually get passed? >> no. i think they actually have to
5:36 am
get tough. right now the democrats want to impeach trump. they don't accept him as legitimate president and they want to toss him out of office. but the problem is that the republicans are not on board with the agenda. half of them, which i think ties into why reince priebus is done with. halgone. half of them would like him to be a conventional republican president as if jeb had won or marco or whoever. that's not going to happen. trump will succeed or fail as a trumpian president and the republicans in congress have to get on board with that or i think they're going to have real problems. clayton: we said before the break that you are in favor of more people being cleaned out of the white house. we saw reince priebus fired. we saw sean spicer ousted. do you think we will see other shootshoes to drop? >> the justification for reince priebus was that he was the first guy in the republican establishment to actually cooperate with the president, and the president rewarded him by giving him this job.
5:37 am
and i think after six months you -- well, i should back up. because your question to kellyanne was genius about who is not leaving the white house this week. we all talk like experts. but the fact is, this is such a unique situation, that, you know, appointing anthony scaramucci is a crazy move, but it might work or it might not work. appointing john kelly is the same move and that might work or it might not work. the fact is we are in totally uncharted waters. abby: that's not what this congresswoman says. this is from barbara lee who tweeted this out says by putting general john kelly in charge the president trump is militarizing the white house and putting our executive branch in the hands of the extremists. look at the resume of general john kelly and you read that tweet. we had a guest on earlier saying she needs to resign. >> 45 years in the u.s. military that makes you an extremist. you are too way far out on the wacky fringe. 45 years in the u.s. military. whoa.
5:38 am
i deplore this general phobia. i think it is general phobic. and i think the point here is that trump is not a politician. and he doesn't come with a bunch of people around him and he hasn't been there for first campaign school board in 1978, barbara lee represents the full time professional lifetime political class. trump is a different kind of presidency. he is not lifelong politicians. sometimes they are businessmen. sometimes they are military. sometimes they are kind of slightly wacky people like anthony scaramucci. but we know one thing, the lifelong political class, the career political class has failed america. it's actually failed the entire western world since we professionalized. pete: that's wacky. is the change of the guard we are seeing. establishment out. tried that dipping the toe in the water.
5:39 am
now it's the loyaltyists and the fighters and people he trusts. >> it's more than just the loyaltyists. you never heard much about john kelly for the last six months he got on top of it and fixed problems there and didn't make show boating headlines. trump is rewarding him for what he has done the last six months at that department. so it's not just. pete: actual mayor to come crazy. clayton: bloated -- they have all of this stuff. >> had like a nutty mission. they created us a 9/11 and couple years ago they were raiding boston strip clubs selling knock off red sox merchandise. you know, i don't know that's why the department of homeland security was set up. and actually, raiding people who had imported vintage british sports cards which i don't think -- as far as i know al qaeda are not driving
5:40 am
in. pete: raid out illegal criminals. >> yeah, yeah. abby: who gets fired next then going back to that question. you are saying more changes do need to happen. where do those changes need to happen? >> well, i do think the leaking is serious because, essentially, that means the president can't say -- what's fascinating about the scaramucci thing to the new yorker is he says -- he said it was all off the record. when he went into this big rant about leakers. abby: you learn quickly. >> he said it was off the record. which, in that case means it's a leak. he is leaking to the new yorker guy about leaks. he is leaking to the new yorker but priebus is going to be fired for leaking. you can't have that. you can't operate in that way. pete: it seems that he was sent in to be unleashed to go after those who will leaking. his call to the new yorker reporter response to the call about this leak happening. no one else knew about. do you think president trump is in there saying i'm done with the games.
5:41 am
>> the president has said to have criticized reince for not playing smash mouth back against scaramucci. so, again, i come back to the point i made like the same stuff may work or it may not, and the crazy stuff might work or it might not. but this -- we are -- that's what makes this presidency so fascinating. abby: um-huh. >> the rule book, the op-ed experts said gerald ford tried this in 1979. it should occasion a certain pickle like sir couple speculation. clayton: i like you brought it back to pickles. mark steyn author and columnist. great to have you on the show. coming up on the show, president trump vowing to crack down on the ruthless ms-13 gang. >> we're going to restore safety to our streets and peace to our communities. and we're going to destroy the vile criminal cartel ms-13.

political affiliation is. do you really want those type of people in your community? do you think ms-13 cares whether you are on this side of the aisle or that side of the aisle, seriously. todd: i don't know if they understood what ms-13 was. we spoke with one guy who literally said i don't know what it is when we asked people questions. they would blame trump. abby: that's always the case, todd by the way. because you go out to a lot of these protests, oftentimes they have no clue what they're protesting. it's just they pile up on whatever they think is popular. >> they don't know the difference this is disturbing gang needs to be stopped, simple. clayton: thanks, todd. abby: thank you, todd. war on cops new low. police officer named teddy bear gunned down by a man who was trying to help. what could be a senseless killing? former nypd is here to react to that. pete: geraldo rivera predicted reince priebus would be a

clayton: welcome back. this morning one person is in custody connected to the deadly shooting of an indiana police officer. southport police lieutenant aaron allen was gunned down thursday while trying to help people at the scene of a car crash. abby: so what could be behind such a senseless killing? joining us now is darren porcher a former nypd lieutenant and u.s. army veteran. >> thanks for having me. abby: what happened here? >> it was a terrible situation. when you look at the dynamics of an officer that's
5:54 am
responding to a motor vehicle accident and he becomes the victim of a shooting, it really raises questions as to what was this individual in possession of, being a warrant? did this person think the cops were looking for him for something else? it goes back to the vigilance that's deployed by an officer on the day-to-day in responding though these cases. abby: officer nicknamed by teddy bear beloved by so many was going it to save people from this car ends up being shot -- there he is right there -- shot and killed by people toe in the car thought he was coming after them for something else. that's reality today, clayton, it happens all too often. >> look at police officers. we hear these stories all too often how police officers are being targeted. people going after police officers, sitting ducks. sitting there on patrol outside with their partner. sitting in a car sort of just sitting ducks. what can police officers do? what can communities do to try to rally around these police officers to help them? >> well, police in communities should have a conjoined
5:55 am
relationship. when you look back to the shooting of michael brown back in ferguson years ago, it exacerbated a narrative of police being the enemy so to speak. in essence, police are here to work with us. they are the gate keepers of society. they are our first line of defense. therefore, we as individual citizens, should have that relationship with police whereas we should see them as counterparts and our friends. not as the enemy. that's something that's been exasperated by the media. clayton: talk about exacerbating things. the media got upset when president trump was talking to the police officers said look, have you got these killers, i see you put your hand on the back of their head, the ms-13, you are putting them in the car, maybe you take them away and we don't need to baby these guys. we need to be tough. and that's what he was talking about. the media jumped all over it saying the president was encouraging violence from police officers. what did you make of that? >> well, i think the president stands side by side with law enforcement and that's what that came came from.
5:56 am
we have a very different administration in play. i think the president is trying to amplify the necessity of citizens standing next to law enforcement. he made -- he used the term "we want to be tough on these guys." we do need to be tough on people like ms-13. these are people that are killers. these are people that are out to hurt our society; therefore, we need to stand aligned with law enforcement. abby: yeah. media, as you are pointing out, is a huge part of the problem. >> we need a panacea to the problem no, sir hyperbole. abby: sad story for that police officer. all right. up next, i guess a restaurant apparently you will not just tip for the service. you will now pay for the server's healthcare, too. that's up next. clayton: still ahead we are celebrating national chicken wing day. geraldo rivera is chowing down in the green room. he joins us live next. any national day of anything and it's food related, we are going to celebrate it ♪ i'm hungry like the wolf

of the show. we had pickle on, 9-year-old boy. >> now we have geraldo, i don't know if he can top pickle. >> there's nothing more difficult than interviewing with kids live. abby: how did we do, geraldo? peter: we never know. >> temperament of a 9-year-old. peter: the big news out here you predicted and talked about the current chief of staff may be out, reince priebus. he is, john kelly is in, general john kelly, what do you make of the change? >> what a great question. let me take it first from the reince priebus part. there had been 125 major leaks in 127 days of the trump administration. clearly, that west wing was riddled with snitches and rats
6:03 am
and back stabbers and opportunists and that was all under priebus' watch. i'm not suggesting that he was the leaker, maybe he was or he wasn't. i trust anthony scaramucci and as rough as his week has been, he was there for a week, he saw something, he saw something that compelled him to that passionate outburst and convinced the president, that hey, this is the deep state that you have the oval office. these are the carry-overs. these are the party politicians. these aren't your people. >> he gets fire, is there another shoe to drop? >> i think, yes. here is the way it goes. scaramucci stops the leaks, general john kelly, four-star marine general, this is real stuff. this is discipline, totally different culture coming in there. this is a grown-up in the room. abby: would the president listen to john kelly?
6:04 am
>> you know, abby, i have no doubt. this president like many of us who didn't receiver has deference. i think that president trump will be well received and i think that he intends to follow kelly's advice but kelly is not the substance guy. kelly provides the order, he provides the discipline. scaramucci stops the leaks, but the agenda is the president's agenda. it's incumbent on the 45th president of the united states, donald trump, to have a achievable agenda. does that mean you knock yourself trying to pass someone's health legislation for six and a half months and batter yourself and try to put together pieces of a plan that they had 7 and a half years to put together
6:05 am
and failed to do, no, you do the things that you do great. what does he do great? i have watched donald trump rebuild this city. he should be the builder, let's have an infrastructure, 2 trillion -- if you want to build the wall, you build the wall. build whatever, but build, build highways, build bridges and public schools. pete: we had kellyanne conway and this is what she had to say about bringing order back. >> general secretary kelly will bring discipline and put out without even saying so the victim that loose lips sinks ships and people will think twice before they try to hurt each other and colleagues by using the press to do so or even to think they are helping the president by conveying information that is not yet right for public disclosure or in negotiation or conversation. >> she said something to what a
6:06 am
corey lewandowski said on the show, this will hope an end to back-stabbing and when i asked the question, was reince priebus the back-stabber was he pushing his own agenda, i won't go back that far. why was he fired? >> i'm with you. the president moved swiftly for a reason. he smelled the rat. i want to be as a plain as i can be. that's the deep state. holdovers from the previous regime. i think that he had to clean house. but now he has to stop and i hope general kelly can help him unforce errors. what do i mean by unforced errors? >> did we need a transgender ban right now that the military didn't know about, did we really have to refer to the gang bangers as savages. abby: you know what, john kelly
6:07 am
has been praised obviously, a four-star general, received three times overseas but also someone that can work across both aisles of the political party, the question now, geraldo, how does he keep law and order but how does the help the president deal with republicans who can't seem to put one foot on front of the other? he said republicans in the senate will never win if they don't go to 51-majority now. they look like fools. 8 dems totally control the senate. many bills will never pass, get smart. how will john kelly help him here? >> i don't know, that's a tough one, abby, that's a procedural matter. whether you're going to 51 or super majority of 60. i'm not really -- i'm not a parliamentarian. pete: he's saying get rid of every excuse. >> the reason you need discipline message now, you have
6:08 am
to give guidance. the senate is a bunch of people who all want to be president, who all they think could be president, they all think they are smarter than the president and they have arrogance about them and they go a hundred different ways. i think the president has to cut through it. he has to describe and define what he stands for. what does this president stand for? trump is a builder. that's one of the reasons he was elected. let him go out there and let him do that. now, they are going to go for tax reform. tax reform is going to be just like health care because there's going to be a thousand different agendas and there's going to be lobbyists that are paying for this, they're twisting this arm and they wanting to this direction, that direction, it is another, you know, exercise and sound and furry -- pete: what do republicans stand for? >> well, you know -- pete: that's all they ever to stood for cutting government and cutting taxes. >> you make an excellent point. when you look at the tax code
6:09 am
right now and you want to take $2 trillion out of the tax code, well, i'm a republican and i was raised that if you're going to take taxes away, you have to cut expenditures, you have to have a reasonably balanced budget. i haven't heard anybody suggest, i heard priebus before he was fired. we are going to close loopholes. how many times have you heard that? you want to close loophole and came out with transgender band. let's start taking off some of the sacred cows before -- >> you're going pay for infrastructure. republican says i'm going build a tunnel. you put it out to private bids, tunnel collects tolls, the private builder who builds tunnel takes the money from the tolls, he makes a profit, the government gets a tunnel for
6:10 am
freebaseically and the consumers pay, that's what a republican does. i want to see that kind of solutions to some of the problems. let's put inch back to work and put them back to work doing smart toll ways. >> elon musk wants to build tunnels, let him build tunnels. >> i think we need a pragmatic focused president now that the snitches have been driven out and now will be an office run by a disciplined marine corps general, mattis, mcmaster, three great generals in his -- rex tillerson back into the fold, let's work together, let's get this done, let's be positive and we won't go off with tweets that change the subject unnecessarily. abby: thank you for your advice. >> i love this guy and want him to be successful. abby: more warning shots for

u.s. warships to iranian patrol boats similar to the incident earlier this week. this happened tuesday, but the iranians say media is now reporting the u.s. says fired similar warning shots last night at several aggressive iranian boats again in the persian gulf. the iranian backing off after those incidents. north korea test launching test missile possibly capable of striking anywhere in the u.s. mainland. experts warning kim jong un nuclear arsenal may be able to reach cities like denver, new york or chicago, it is the rogue's nation second missile launch this monday. the u.s. military responding by launching missiles of the south korean post. we are learning president trump will sign new sanctions against russia. the bipartisan bill passed
6:12 am
overwhelmingly both houses and aimed to punish against meddling in the u.s. election and in retaliation russia to cut staff in moscow and keying two u.s. diplomatic properties. interesting he would sign the bill. >> he should have overriden it to make a statement. abby: commander in chief has our first 2020 challenger. >> he's not focused on the future and not doing the things structurally to make our economy more competitive. abby: if you don't know him, you will soon, maryland's congressman, worth about $90 million, he plans to ramp up his presidential campaign after the 2018 midterms.

>> would be back, new questions this morning surrounding the firm behind the fake trump dossier. could it be the democrats are actually the ones that have a stake into it after all? pete: joining us wall street journal columnist kimberley
6:17 am
strassel. >> great to be here. pete: abby brought to our attention this op-ed. abby: interesting. pete: who funded the so-called dossier and motivations were. >> the important thing is we don't know who funded it and there seems to be conservative effort in washington to make sure we don't find out and one of the co-founders of this firm, glen simpson invited to congress and apparently the terms by which he appeared no question who my client was and democrats have backed him in that request too. i think that the reason they don't wanting to because it appears that his firm not only had hired this former british spy to dig up dirt on the trump administration but they did that while they were simultaneously working for a russian entity. and there's all the curious questions whether or not there were intersectionses there or whether or not the russians were tipped off to this. >> i want to play some sound.
6:18 am
watch this and kimberly is going to assess this, watch. >> the group that did the dossier on president trump hired this british spy, wound up getting it to the fbi. you believed they were working for the russians. >> and in the spring and in the summer of 2016, they were receiving money indirectly from a senior russian government official. >> wow, so money from the russians, who is the colluding now? >> this is the big question because if they were getting money from the russians, working with russians. by the way we know too that some of the russians were connected to the kremlin. so just imagine the scenario, imagine that somehow they get tipped off that they are also trying to dig up dirt on the trump campaign. what if the kremlin knew and was feeding information to this spy making up this dossier doping
6:19 am
this entire firm to cause chaos back here in the u.s. election. abby: something that james comey has been using information that ultimately could have been paid for by the russians. you let that sink in for a moment and i thought that was fascinating. >> now, bob mueller could be using this. >> this is the bigger concerns about this. we know that this dossir has been discredited and basis for the fbi to get court orders. ability to inspire a criminal investigation. abby: the more democrats are learning about the possibility, the more they are potentially pulling back. they are hearing with donald trump, jr. and manafort that was supposed to be the spectacle, the democrats wanted to watch the fireworks play out and then strangely it went very private. >> suddenly the committee will interview privately and i think the reason is because democrats also wanted glen simpson who
6:20 am
runs fuzion, gps, they don't want him out there having to answer the question, who paid you to do this stuff. pete: is there a potential democratic collusion side to this? is this more than blocking the fact that never colluded, is there a possibility they had more of a hand in it as well? >> well, look if, yo u look at the evidence we have some unnamed person hiring fusion gps who hires spy to get all the information from the russians. what if it was the dnc? then suddenly we have money flowing from them to fusion, to british people to the russians. abby: would you imagine how that would change things. >> we have the right to find out who was behind it. pete: that's right, if the democrats believe what they say they believe, they want to find out who is behind tampering in our elections, they should want it to go in any direction, right? abby: great work.

6:25 am
adviser when he was governor of indiana. pete: one republican who says he's done with california and decided to move to texas once he figured out a lot of people did the same thing, he started a company call conservative move to help conservatives move to conservative state. abby: paul, good to have you with us. >> great to be with you and your listeners and those at home watching. abby: when i heard the story, i was thinking too often today you have people that live in their own cul-de-sac surrounded by people that act like you, you know f we have strong conservative values and opinions, let's double down on them and hopefully try to make a difference on where we live. >> many of us try to make a difference and great point. my wife and i were born and raised in california 43 years,
6:26 am
i've been a law enforcement military, we have four young kids. when we were born and raised in california, it was a great state, we used to have safe schools, great-paying jobs, it's the complete opposite now that liberals are in control of california. it's very difficult for working families or anybody, not only make a living tbow feel safe and want to raise kids in area that in in parts of states you have crimes out of controls and schools in bottom percent isle. many are leaving not only californians but others from liberal states. pete: states like texas had better opportunity for kids, you ran in california because you we wanted to change it there. your message to abby's point, they just take more control and things fail even more, what's the balance between fighting back where you are or going to say, hey, i'm looking to close
6:27 am
ranks really where it reflects my value? >> you have to fight where you have a fighting chance. many of us tried in california and we have a shrinking membership out there that's moving to other states but people have to look at the life at the lens of children, where is the best place to raise your kids and that was our primary concern looking at california and so many of us have made that decision. i say over 2,000 families have contacted us from around the country not just wanting to move to texas but other red states as well and we are happy to help them but we are also happy to share our story with them to make it a comfortable process. abby: you have moved your family. how many kids do you have? >> we have four and at home watching, 10, 8, 7 and our little boy is 4 year's old. abby: such a beautiful family. they are now living in texas. how is life in texas and have you found other people and other families that have gone through similar things that you all have that feel comfortable somewhere
6:28 am
else. >> living in texas is amazing, leaving california is kind of leafing a bad relationship that you truly didn't know how bad it was until you are out of it and being in texas you kind of feel like you're in a dream, vacation, you're with people who many of which left california long before we did. we are not pioneers in this. my neighbor across the street is from california, the postman, the guy from fox studio in dallas. so many people have left california. in texas we have 98.2 graduation rate and four of the top 10 cities in america are located here in north texas. you see major businesses leaving california and moving to other states and families are simply making the same decision as well. pete: paul, that's the other side of the equation, economic equation. states like texas are becoming a magnet because they have opportunity. good on you. abby: paul, thanks for coming on
6:29 am
this morning. >> thanks for having me. pete: former it staffer was arrested trying to flee the country, debbie wasserman schultz could be in -- could be the one in the hot seat. will she be force today testify? abby: national chicken wing day and steve and myself, i'm pregnant, come on, we are all starving, what better to celebrate than with our own chicken wing challenge. that's next. atment 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
6:30 am
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. 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.

people, he's going to, you know, make sure that what -- what some courts have ruled to be overreach with the trump administration is actually going to become policy but i want to point out two things, number one, this is a personnel matter, much like the director of communications, you know, mr. scaramucci, family susan lucci, it doesn't matter what the president's day-to-day administrators are, the reason we have checks and balances is to make sure that policy happens as the american people the representatives want it. clayton: a but to that was dhs targeting illegal immigrants coming across the border that that guy has now the inner
6:48 am
circle, the ear of the president more closely? >> how about enforcing the law. barbara lee can call it targeting but americans call it laws that exist. illegal aliens are breaking the law and general kelly, instituting the will of the american voters when they voted in november and he's going to be in the white house instituting the president trump's agenda. this is a good thing for america. clayton: will democrats work with this president to get infrastructure through now that you have general kelly in there who can reach across the aisle and maybe reach out to democrats and get some things working? will democrats do it? >> absolutely, general kelly, and i want to thank the man for his service and he lost a son in the war. general kelly is absolutely somebody who demands and deserves the respect of every american and as long as we are working toward making this a better country for everyone, all
6:49 am
of our citizens, all of our voters, i don't see why there would be any difficulty in general kelly getting assistance. clayton: brian, are you hardened by that? >> if he was approved by the u.s. senate, largest margin of any of the nominee that is president trump put forward, i think it's a good thing. you look at president trump wanted to be his president and will work hard or the his president, he wants to be bipartisan, he doesn't come with the 30-year partisan battles that exist in this town. he comes with a fresh perspective and i think that's great for the country. clayton: ryan and jamila, great to see you this morning. >> thank you. clayton: summer is heating up, that means mosquitoes are out in full force. things you can make your backyard bug free and keep your family safe. chances are, the last time you got a home loan,

abby: we have so many people in the plaza this morning. love having you here. the warmer weather and summer rain means pesty mosquitoes are back in full force. what can you do to keep backyard bug free and kids safe, we love having you here. >> thank you. abby: seven t's. >> seven t's. it's all about education, mosquito squad is about protecting you and your squad on mosquitoes. only mosquitoes are the bad one. the first tip is tip, anything that collects water, tip it over, get rid of it. that's enough water for
6:54 am
mosquitoes to breed. anything that you see, birdbath, get rid of the excess water. abby: what about a pool? >> same thing. this is a great example. a lot of people have kids playing but when you leave it alone get rid of the water, turn it over, that's a major breeding ground for mosquitoes. abby: the sand box. >> most people have this, kids are playing, look at all the water it's holding. you want to, again, turn these over. turn them over and get rid of the water, on their side or get rid of them completely. abby: what do you have? pete: looks like my yard right now. why what's do i do? >> this is toss. this is where mosquitoes will go because this is what's going to hold water. underneath it's probably holding water, damp and moist,
6:55 am
mosquitoes will gravitate toward this but they are actually breeding here. pete: pick up rakes later. >> good to see you. clay lay i always have this problem, i put the tarp on my lawn furniture. >> you're not the only one. this happens all of the time whether it's on furniture, this will happen, water will collect, so again, visually walking around your yard, if you tighten that side -- clayton: straps underneath. that's why they are there and the water rolls right off. abby: go ahead. >> you've been waiting for the gutter section. >> this is meant to get rid of water, that's the whole point but what happens a lot of times even the old creases is enough area for water. this is on the ground.
6:56 am
enough area for water to collect, you might not realize for mosquitoes to breathe. this is my counterpart. this is a great example of mosquito squad's technicians, licensed and specifically train to treat your yard. that's -- abby: great job this morning day 13. if only this were as easy as saving $600 when you switch to progressive. winds stirring. too treacherous for a selfie.

[cheers and applause] neil: welcome, everybody, live looking at the implications on what was shaking down in washington and what was not shaking up markets that much. as you know by now, john kelly, the homeland security secretary will be moving to white house chief of staff. the president has been busy tweeting this morning. we will have the fall-out from all of this as well as the agenda and what it means for the president. he has been, of course, changes he would like to see in congress right now to avoid the kind of thing that always happens, the simple majority vote, whether he get into all of that.
