. by 755. the state department responded in the statement saying, quote, this is a regrettable and uncalled for act. we are assessing the impact of such a limitation and how as vice president pence traveling in eastern europe turning on pressure on increasingly provocative russia. >> russia's destabilizing
activities rogue ar regimes. activities in ukraine are unacceptable. as we make our intentions clear as we expect russian behavior to change, the president and i remain very hopeful. >> general kelly will be sworn in at 9:30 this morning and attend first cabinet meeting as the chief of staff. 10:00 a.m. and while many expect him to bring a marine order and discipline to a west wing clearly battered by chaos and crisis, it appears he will have much larger issues to deal with than leaks and infighting. hopes to move on issues like tax reform while not giving up on healthcare. possibly working with democrats this go around. house leader nancy pelosi is optimistic and looks forward to working with the general. >> i look forward to working with general kelly. i have worked with him -- well, secretary kelly. it's a very important position, the chief of staff to the president of the united states. and it has to be recognized as he is the chief of staff.

that, whether he will allow that whether when somebody utters into the oval office the words will be does kelly know you are here. he will have to reduce the drama and rereduce the sniping within and leaks. and brings discipline between the relationship of this white house which is at war with itself. i have never seen anything like it in my life. the white house so eager to leak on itself. heather: corey lewandowski had some advice if general kelly would like to take any. said that his ad vice was to not change president trump or not try to change him. he is a tough guy. he has a tough reputation. so that will fit in well. todd: i think the anthony scammer and john kelly you are definitely getting a no nonsense approach now. maybe before it was more lucy goosy. now you have kelly and scammer, there's going to be a path to the president and it's going to go through those two individuals. heather: moving on, we do

that's why he is demanding that congress act. >> senate republicans have failed to act. find any consensus on any measure to overhaul obamacare. senator susan collins explains why she voted against the so-called skinny bill. >> so we are talking about low income americans. it would be deficit stating if those payments were cut off. >> democrat senator dianne feinstein adds the full senate has learned a big lesson from all of this adding, perhaps, it's time now to take a bipartisan approach. >> my view is that we have to go regular order. have the hearings, enable and begin with some of the specifics where we know we need to change. >> so this is far from over. president trump says he wants a new healthcare bill quickly, tweeting, if not, then bailouts or insurance companies and congressional members, well, they will end very soon. coming up in the next half hour, we will hear what house minority leader nancy

escalating as vladimir putin orders the united states to cut its diplomatic mission by 755 in response to the new sanctions. the state department responded in a statement saying, quote: this is a regrettable and uncalled for act. we are assessing the impact of such a limitation and how we will respond to it. vice president pence traveling in eastern europe also turning up the pressure on russia's latest provocations. >> russia's destabilizing activities support for rogue regimes. activities in ukraine are unacceptable. as we make our intentions clear. we expect russian behavior to change, the president and i remain very hopeful. >> that's not the only international crisis. general kelly will also have to address the escalating tensions with north korea as the rogue nation launching more missiles in recent days. while many expect him to bring a level of discipline west wing by infighting. he will also have to find ways to move forward on domestic issues like tax
reform and not giving up on healthcare that would likely involve working with democrats. house minority leader nancy pelosi indicates she is optimistic and looks forward to working with the general. >> i look forward to working with general kelly. i have worked with him as, well, secretary kelly. it's a very important position. the president -- chief of staff to the president of the united states. and it has to be recognized as he is the chief of staff. >> finally, perhaps, guys, an elephant in the room, many wonder if a marine general can tame the president's often undisciplined twitter habits. heather: we will so he if that can happen. all right. thank you, griff. well, that does bring us to our look who is talking this morning. we mentioned this earlier president trump's former campaign manager corey lewandowski says that the new chief of staff needs to successfully facilitate the white house agenda without stepping on the president's toes. >> the thing that general kelly should do is not try to change donald trump. let trump be trump. that is what has made him self over the last 30 years.
that's what the american people voted for. anybody who thinks they are going to change donald trump doesn't know donald trump. part of it, obviously, is that the president wants to bring a new direction and what that means is making sure his legislative agenda gets done. and what's very important to the president is fulfilling the campaign promises which he outlined and we saw this week legislative defeat in congress for the repeal and replace of obamacare. that's something that he campaigned on and reince was brought, in as you know, as someone who could work with the members of the house and the senate to get that legislative agenda done. and with that not being accomplished, the president made a decision to move in a new direction. heather: president trump calling on the senate meantime to go nuclear and repeal and replace obamacare. todd: but could a bipartisan solution be on the way? kelly wright joins us now with the very latest. >> todd, that is the question of the day. for president trump failure is not an option. he wants overhaul of obamacare. he is challenging senate
republicans right now to get the job done. the president sending that message loudly and clearly through twitter stating after seven years of talking repeal and replace, the people of our great country are still being forced to live with imploding obamacare. unless the senators are total quitters repeal and replace is not dead. demand voting before voting on any other bill. >> the president's passion about this is that he understands that this system may be working for washington. it may be working for insurance companies, but it's not working for patients. that's where his passion is. >> so with the president laying down the gauntlet for senate republicans, senator mitch mcconnell will now have to return yet again to try helping senators find some consensus on how to move forward with a planned repeal and replace obamacare. mcconnell has already suggested that perhaps it's wise to engage with democrats to find a bipartisan path forward. democrats like house minority leader nancy pelosi
supports some aspects of mcconnell's healthcare plan. >> he had a provision that we can all embrace. and it was a provision to cover the cost sharing -- cost sharing reduction. it extends the reinsurance, which is very important. it has short-term stability, long-term stability. and i fully support that and hope that he would advance that. >> perhaps that's a starting place. president trump is urging republicans to get this bill done quickly before moving on to any other legislation. the question, todd and heather, is it time to that thaw the ice? heather: why didn't they say things like that before now before we got to this pointed. >> because they did things behind closed doors. todd: wasn't politically expedient as well: one of the senators maine senator susan collins one of three republicans to vote against the skinny repeal returned
from washington to a crowd giving her a round of applause at the airport. a photo of the slow clap moment going viral and collins loved every second of it along with fellow republican senators murkowski and mccain are credited with the so-called skinny repeal last week. >> heather: well, in just a few hours president trump will come face to face with attorney general jeff sessions for the first time since publicly criticizing him for recusing himself from the russia investigation. sessions expected at the white house this morning for a cabinet meeting led by the president. now, their warm relationship turning sort of icy after president trump said that he wouldn't have picked him for attorney general if he knew sessions was going to step away from the russia investigation. todd: more violence in chicago ends with a 4-year-old boy shot and injured and a woman with him being killed. at least 29 people were shot just this weekend alone. leaving two people dead.
there have been more than 400 homicides in the windy city this year with more than 2100 people shot. president trump sent federal agents to help police there trying to clean up those streets. heather: it's crazy. newly engaged couple dead after a small plane crash carrying san bernardino sheriff's deputy and fiance found n remote area after leaving big bear. they rented the plane for the weekend and heading to another airport in san bernardino county. the cause of the crash is still unknown. todd: check this out. daring rescue over 100 feet in the air. dozens of passengers trapped above the city of cologne after a cable car coalition. parents holding children tightly as they're brought to safely. look at that right there. that's scary. fire crews using a crane to get people down. fortunately, no injuries reported. >> wow, that's scary.

a university of iowa professor, his name is dan williams, actually he is a columnist. he said being smart is a form of privilege that shouldn't be flaunted. so he writes: there are many kinds of privilege besides white privilege. cognitive privilege, for example. we now know that intelligence is not something we have significant control over but is something we are born with. now, this is my favorite part. william goes on to say you have nothing to be proud of for being smart. what? so, yeah, so social media is weighing in. a lot of reaction on this one. one person tweeting liberals denounce intelligence as cognitive privilege. if you are smart and white you are a racist and then s. cooper on twitter says according to liberals it is now unacceptable to be proud of your iq. it is cognitive privilege and it is bad. so, a sophomore at the university of iowa is actually going to be on "fox & friends" later. we're going to hear from
perspective on this. heather: must be bad professor. >> that's the whole follow of school is to do well and further yourself. todd: that just work really hard. >> absolutely. yeah. i completely agree. we will hear what that student has to say about this later on on "fox & friends." heather: in the meantime michael moore is back. >> michael moore has been very busy these days undermining trump's presidency. his new one man anti-trump prodway show actually just opened for preview. and in between acts he is attacking the president on twitter over the healthcare vote. he tweeted: hey, loser, you lost. you lost on november 8th and you lost on friday. you hold fake power that was not given to you by the majority of americans. loser. so, a lot of the president's supporters have taken to twitter to comment. say what you want about the president. the one thing you cannot call him is a loser. so one person on twitter
said white house republican, house republican, senate republican, special election republican, come again, who is the loser? so a lot of people talking about this. and are very, very fired up, of course. michael moore has a way of doing that. firing people up. heather: always. todd: we had this gentleman in the building a few weeks ago. joey chestnut, hot dog eating contest. which he won. but now you are telling me won something completely different which we can't wrap our heads around. >> apparently this guy has many talents. so joey chestnut is back with another eating contest. he actually ate 92 tacos in 8 minutes at the world's taco eating championship. i like tacos more than hot dogs. maybe i have a little bit of a better, you know, better chance at winning this one, who knows. sauce does give me heart burn. a lot of people on social media talking about this. one person said he is the
greatest athlete alive. >> how do they eat the tacos. hot dogs they dip the buns in water. >> this is interesting. i want to know if it's a hard or soft shell taco. if it's a hard shell tacos he deserves a medal of valor. heather: how do they train anyway. let's check in with pete hegseth to see what's coming up on "fox & friends." maybe he knows. pete: good morning, todd and heather. thank you very much. it is the last day of july. first day for general john kelly as white house chief of staff. we have a lot to cover there. we're going to ask general jakeenan. we're going to ask white house director of legislative affairs mark short he is in charge of their agenda on capitol hill. we will get his take as well as governor mike huckabee. you are going to want to hear this. man who just met his biological father 87-year-old air force vet. they messaged me on facebook. that is them meeting for the

pelosi has faced repeated calls to step down. we know that from the leadership post since republicans took control of the house seven years ago. and while senate republicans started from scratch obamacare. bernie sanders wants to give medicare to everyone. as the vermont senator saying that he is finishing
up the legislation soon to introduce a single pair system. a similar system failed in his home state of vermont. and when questioned about that on cnn. sanders couldn't exactly give a straight earn. listen. >> why couldn't this happen in vermont then? what's the issue in vermont? vermont would seem to be a perfect test case. >> well, this is -- politically, this is difficult. look, taking on the insurance companies and the drug companies is not going to be easy. it's not going to be until millions get involved in the struggle. heather: not really an answer. if presented the bill could face significant hurdles in the republican controlled congress, todd? todd: heather, thanks. president trump accused of promoting police brew talings against the violent ms gang terrorizing the streets. >> we are going to restore safety to our community and peace to our communities. we are going to destroy the
vile criminal cartel ms-13 and many other gangs. ms-13 is particularly violent. these are animals. it is the policy of this administration to dismantle, disseminate and eradicate ms-13. todd: joining us now to debate former g.o.p. strategist noel nikpour and attorney evangeline gomez. good morning to you both. >> good morning to you. todd: i want to play the sound bite from friday's speech that is getting some people in an uproar. take a listen. >> when you guys put somebody in the car and you are protecting their head, you know, the way you put your hand -- like don't hit their head and they have just killed somebody. don't hit their head? i said you can take the hand away, okay? todd: noel, i will talk to you. isn't this tough talk to rally the troops. >> this is absolutely funny.
that's exactly what he is doing. he is giving a little tough talk. a little trump talk i like to say. you know, in reality, if you look at this, you know, there has been some backlash and the left is going crazy over. this but it's ironic because it actually -- what do they think? who is going to come out and protest on behalf of the gang members and it's almost like they are making the gang member the victim. todd: evangeline, you have a different response. >> the issue here is that this statement didn't just pertain to gang members. he said this following his speech about ms-13 and the issue here is that this is the commander-in-chief. this is our president who is saying, hey, police officers, break the law. it's okay to use excessive force against arrestees. people who have not been adjudicated by a court or by a jury to be guilty of anything. that's a problem. because, as you know, here in the united states and some states, you can be arrested for something as minor as not wearing a seat belt. is it okay then for a police
officer to bang your head because you have been arrested for not wearing a seat belt? that's the problem here. this is beyond irresponsible. it is actually dangerous. this is very serious. todd: let me let noel weigh in. is what the president advocated police brutality. >> no. not at all. look, this is taking it to the extreme. we he all know trump. we know that trump doesn't mean for someone that violates seat belts or whatever, you know, for someone, the police to be brutal and just shove them in there and back them up. look, they are just saying you don't have to be so gentle, white glove treatment. >> he could have used those words. there is another issue here. i'm an attorney. and i will tell you that this is the commander-in-chief it is an instruction it sounds like a directive in the way that he said it. some officer on trial for police brutality can invoke this as a defense saying
look our president said it was okay for me to do this. >> extreme. >> parts part of the men's rhea, it could be used. and that is a problem here. >> that's laughable. >> it's not to be taken lightly. >> you really think that trump is saying to invoke violence? >> i'm telling you when you talk you have to be concerned about what the recipient of the information, in this situation your audience, how they interpret this information. that's why this is more serious than it is being made out to be. todd: angela i'm going to jump in here and play lawyer with you for a second. how would the defense invoke presidential speech in a court of law i've never heard of that in this contest it? >> could be. this is our commander-in-chief. this policy initiative going on. the president said it's okay for me to go out and to bang someone's he would head. i'm not saying it would be successful. but it is something that a creative attorney could use.
todd: evangeline, no h no he el. heather: time is 6 minutes before the top of the hour, a dancing deputy caught on camera. something a little lighter for you. coming up the officer making light of a stressful situation. and this is not something that you see every day. how did this girl wind up stuck upside down between a pole and a wall? ♪ you turn me inside out ♪ and round, round ♪ upside down ♪ boy, you turn me ♪ inside out ♪ and ♪ if you have bad breath and your mouth lacks moisture, you may suffer from dry mouth. try biotène®, the #1 dentist recommended dry mouth brand.

todd: time now for the good, the bad and the ugly. first the good. >> do some control. todd: he has got it. directing traffic during a power outage. sergeant tweeting video with the #cop humor. heather: like it. do not try this at home. a louisiana teenager shoving a hammer in her mouth after a dare from a friend. her predicament now going viral. she tweeted this picture with the caption how do you tell your mom that you got a hammer stuck in your mouth. luckily after 10 minutes of yanking that hammer they were able to get it free. todd: some questions. finally the ugly, something else you don't see every day.
that is a girl stuck upside down between a pole and a wall. this one happened in scotland. video of a friend lighting up the internet. not clear if she was hurt or if she was sober. heather: what in the world? don't try that hammer stunt at home. we repeat. do not. todd: "fox & friends" starts right now. heather: bye. >> i think general kelly is going to restore order to the staff. his title is chief of staff, not chief of the president. >> he is going to have to reduce the drama, reduce both the sniping within and reduce the leaks. >> russia striking back against the threat of new u.s. sanctions on moscow. >> president vladimir putin now ordering the u.s. ambassador in moscow to cut its staff by an astounding 755 diplomats. >> president trump has been all over republicans on twitter, urging them to do whatever it takes to repeal and replace obamacare. >> the president will not accept those and said it's time to quote move on. >> this system has failed. that's what the president is saying.
