3:04 am
job. the president announced on twitter that there is no chaos at the white house. how would you describe what has happened over the course of the past 10 days. obviously you will agree with your boss, the president, that there is no chaos. how do you explain that not to be the case? >> i think it's pretty simple. i have said it before. if you want to see chaos come to my house with three preschoolers. just to be clear that's not an open invitation to come to my house. if you want to schedule baby-sitting time, i will be happy to work that out. ainsley: that is a cute response. that shut everyone up, didn't it? how do you come back with anything. steve: you can't. ainsley: that's so cute. pete: here is the reality. the so-called mainstream media the d.c. establishment types, the democrats. the establishment g.o.p. they keep treating this guy like is he a conventional politician. the reality is, he is not. he is an outsider. a disrupter, a businessman. he believes in cost benefit analysis.
3:05 am
he looks at the military. the same way the american people look at the military. we respect the military. we hold them up. we understand they actually get things done. i'm going to bring in the best of the best in the military to get things done in my white house. this is instincts from a guy who knows how to lead. ainsley: you don't become a general unless have you followed orders all the way up the chain of command. he has done that answered knows that the president is the commander-in-chief. he knows that the president -- she was saying, sarah huckabee sanders was saying all staff was going to report to him first there were reports that in the past that the chief of staff would come to his door at the oval office and look in and say oh, i didn't know he was meeting with so and so and so and so. now that's going to change according to reports that everyone will have to go through general kelly first. steve: there are reports in the "new york times" that apparently jared and ivanka wanted deanna powell who is the deputy national security advisor to be the chief of staff but then when the president said you know, i
3:06 am
would really like john f. kennedy. ainsley: john f. kelly. steve: john f. kelly, thank you. then there are questions suddenly if john f. kelly is there there is a spot at the department of homeland security. if they move jeff sessions over there, took him out of the attorney general thing then the president could put somebody in. pete: the palace intrigue continues. steve: they were asking that yesterday at the press briefing as well. it turns out the president likes everybody he has got right now. >> report that attorney general sessions is being considered for homeland security chief accurate? how soon will that search be complete? how essential is it for the white house to fill that in a quick manner? >> there are no conversation about any cabinet moving in any capacity. the president has 100 percent confidence in his cabinet. ainsley: he has to fill the communications spot and dhs. many are saying kellyanne conway would be good for communications director.
3:07 am
pete: sarah huckabee sanders is not going to go to the podium and say that unless, these days, both the president and general kelly are saying you are cleared to say he has full faith and confidence in his cabinet which was different from what we were hearing for a couple weeks. steve: absolutely. john f. kelly has his full plate because he has got all those international things and also he has got to restart the legislative agenda. yesterday they officially started the tax reform. but, still, the president, he tweeted yesterday, reminding folks you have got to do something about obamacare. he said if if obamacare is hurting people, and it is, why shouldn't it hurt the insurance companies and why should congress not be paying what the public pays? what he is referring to there is the fact that originally when obamacare was passed, chuck grassley made sure that the senator from the great state of iowa, my birth, he said okay, if we are going to inflict this on the whole country, people of congress, members of congress are going to have obamacare, too. but then because the people in
3:08 am
congress and their staff said we can't afford it, they gave them a 70% subsidy. and so the president is threatening for that to go away. pete: that idea is the best and most common sense idea i have heard in a long time. i sat in for brian on his radio. we got a bunch of calls. not a single person in america thinks that congress should play by a second set of rules. put the screws to them. make them feel the pain like everybody else. ainsley: one lady wrote on twitter said we the taxpayers pay 73% of congress and staff premiums. take that bailout away and watch how quickly they fix this debacle. pete: amen. ainsley: cut off those funds. lindsey graham a senator from the great state of south korea agrees. -- state of south carolina agrees. >> we should be politically horse whipped if we don't try again. the best idea we haven't even brought up. take all the money under obamacare and block grant it back to the states that ends single pair healthcare.
3:09 am
the government closest to the people is the best government. the healthcare closest to the people is the best healthcare. steve: okay, so there he is. he touched on real briefly. block grant the money back to the states. have the states go ahead and figure out what to do about it. also apparently, rand paul yesterday talked to the president of the united states about his plan, which essentially would allow different organizations to let people all across the country form as different organizations. ainsley: like aarp. steve: to get lower rates. mitch mcconnell said time to move on. a lot of people don't want to move it on. ainsley: i read about that. rand paul said he talked on the phone with the president. he said they have come up with a plan they could use executive action, executive order to, let's say, you are retired, you are a member of the aarp. and you as an individual or you as a small business want to negotiate a lower price for your premium, you can do that. steve: the beauty of this is the fact you don't have to go through congress. rand paul is suggesting you
3:10 am
can do it, mr. president, through executive action. because, and mike huckabee knows this and he was on the channel yesterday, there simply are some republicans who are not on the president's team, and that's not good for the president. >> i think a lot of those guys need to go. i like a lot of them personally. but, you know, look, one of the reasons i'm for term limits. the longer they stay the more atamped they are to the institutions of the elitist insider's game of washington. the less they are attached to the passions of the people they need to be serving. pete: that's what we saw. that's why there is so much frustration on the senate floor as much as people may have liked him in the past. it's the chumminess with chuck schumer. we can all be friends. if you are crossing the aisle to undo your own agenda. that's probability of when you looked at people in the eye and said i'm going to repeal and replace obamacare. now are not. you are part of the swamp right now and getting along in a way that is not helping the agenda of the president. ainsley: when i heard him say
3:11 am
that i thought of nancy pelosi. we have talked about her. she has been in for a long time. many people saying it's time for new blood and new opinions. pete: she is a master legislator though. ainsley: they have been in office for so long. is he suggesting we should have the term limits. pete: i love it. ainsley: and they should be shorter. steve: they get sweetheart deals that a lot of us don't even realize and now the president is saying do your job, get something done or i'm going to do it myself. pete: i like it. steve: 6:11. pete: sends us your thoughts on it was. should they stick around and get it done or move on. jillian: we have a number of breaking news stories, guys. starting with a fox news alert. two u.s. soldiers injured when their helicopter goes down in isis hot bed in eastern afghanistan. those soldiers suffering minor injuries after mechanical issue brought down their black hawk in nangahar province.

3:13 am
those men. >> he gave it his all, and then he just kept giving. jim fought with all of the love and courage in his soul. he was prepared to lay down his life so his brothers in arms could live theirs. jillian: now typically a medal of honor is given within five years but thanks to new legislation he became eligible. ainsley: i'm sur how important t is to do this now. pete: one times, two times, nine times what does it say about that? steve: he was on the show a month ago when he said he would be recognized. his wifhe said my wife says -- pete: god speed, it's amazing. moving on to a fox news alert. just how fast north korea

3:18 am
but we will take care of them. we will take care of them very well. we will handle north korea. we're going to be able to handle them. it will be handled. we handle everything. steve: that's what people want to hear the president of the united states yesterday in the roosevelt room talking about how we are going to do something, we're going to handle north korea. this on the heels of the fact that they successful apparently tested a missile on friday. and when you take a look at this new icbm intercontinental ballistic missile, when you realize it could actually reach new york city in 38 minutes, that's a little terrifying. ainsley: at first we heard alaska, then hawaii hawaii then we are learning the lower 48. north korea has the nuclear capability. president trump sending a message to china north korea's biggest ally that they're not doing enough. we are going to enforce sanctions.
3:19 am
nikki haley piggybacked on that. pete: they have a missile that could reach the united states. they don't have the ability to put a nuclear bomb on top of it. when they combine those two together we know they have nuclear technology and capability to deliver it that's when it becomes existential for us. that's what he needs to preserve his regime. it's not just a bomb in north korea it's the ability to deliver it to the united states. that's what the trump administration knows they have to protect against. steve: absolutely. here is kristin fisher our correspondent talking to the vice president about what we might be able to do next. >> all options are on the table. nuclear weapons are in the hands of a rogue regime in north korea represent a threat to nations in the region. now we know a threat to the united states of america. steve: that's existential threat you were talking about. however, here's the thing. they have been donthey have don. they rolled out the analysis. upon reentry the mock war head

actually shattered which means they haven't perfected how to do this. so, it is a set back but, none the less, they are just not as far as long as we thought they have a missile to get it so far they haven't figured out the war head. pete: they keep making progress and the sanctions haven't worked. general dunford said it may be a matter of months before we have to take some military action on this. waiting only makes the problem worse as we have seen in other regimes that seek nuclear power. ainsley: we won't even have a congress if this happens. we will be wiped out. this is the most important issue right now facing our country in many people's opinions. this is when it's time for president trump to get tough and he just put a general as his chief of staff. brilliant move. pete: yep. you have h.r. mcmaster and general kelly. serious about it. ainsley: our president was talking about past administrations, diplomacy. that's not going to work when you are talking to north korea. they have a mission to kill us.

3:26 am
she didn't fire him, debbie wasserman shultz, until after he was arrested at dulles airport trying to flee the fle e country. >> in the old days they covered the news and might foment on the opinion page there was certain kind of distinction. few if there is a story that's embarrassing from the left they ignore it. pretend it doesn't exist. that's clearly troubling. there is more to this story than we know. we not only have the conduct of awan himself but the unbelievable protective cover that debbie wasserman shultz was throwing around him. you remember the video of her berating the police chief basically saying how dare you investigate this. you have no right. there will be consequences not for him but for you. so, there is more here. and i think we need to get to the bottom of it. pete: you mentioned that clip. we will play it real quick. take a listen. >> if a member loses equipment. >> yes. >> and it is found by the

capitol police and staff. and it is identified as that member's equipment and the member is not associated with any case, and that is their equipment, it is supposed to be returned. yes or no? >> depends on the circumstances. >> under my understanding, the capitol police were not able to confiscate member's equipment when the member is not under investigation, it is their equipment and it is supposed to be returned. i think you are violating the rules when you conduct your business that way. there will be consequences. pete: she wants her equipment back. >> from the press' point of view, you know, there is so much smoke about hypothetical scandals involving trump there may have been this and there may have been actual scandals where there is red meat and things to investigate are left on the shelf. ainsley: it locks inticious if she wants the equipment back and going to great links to get that equipment back found in his garage, destroyed hard drives and she worked for him. what is she trying to cover up. it looks suspicious. do you think she will testify?
3:28 am
>> i don't know if she will testify. the republicans, i think, are in the driver's seat here. i think they should make her testify and get to the bottom of this. you never know, there could be a whole lot under the surface we don't know about. steve: your new book called "the big lie." it's your 6th book. you are a very busy writer. holy cow. what's interesting about this and we were talking about in the green room about it, explain to me the connection between president andrew jackson and the nazis. >> well, the book uncovers a sort of secret history between fascism and the democratic party and the left. this is important because, as you know, fascism is now the card that is played by the left against trump. trump is a fascist, republicans are the party of fascism. i show that the opposite is true. fascism has always been on the left. i also point out three ideas that hitler got very destructive genocidal ideas from the democratic party. one of them you mentioned. hitler is sitting in landsberg
3:29 am
prison and is he frustrated because they have conquered large parts of asia and africa. and hitler says there is nothing left for us. wait a minute in america the democrats drove the indians off their land, dispossessed them and enslaved them. that's what i'm going to do. i will throw the polls the slovs off their land we settle it with german families. if any of those guys remain we will enslave them. he got his blueprint for european you can say conquest in europe directly from the jack sownian democrats. pete: where did the modern day left get instead president trump is a fascist? is this them turning the tables? >> yeah. before world war ii the left admired moussaoui lien any. jfk had nice things to say about adolf hitler. after the war in naziism got stained with auschwitz the progressive coming to power in media and academia. we don't want this history to

be known. let's see if we can take fascism and move it from the left wing column where it's always belonged into the right wing column. that's the big lie. the big lie is the idea that fascism is a phenomenon of the right, it's not. pete: did you the same thing with your last book. >> yes having knocked out the race card they have come up with the bigger card fascism card. not abandonment of race card. remember, hitler was racist. anti-semite. the race card is back but now inside the umbrella, you may say of the fascist card. ainsley: congratulations, the book "the big lie" exposing the nazi roots of the american left. congratulations. go on amazon and pick it up. steve: thanks dinesh. straight ahead on this tuesday bombshell new report claiming the obama administration changed the rules making it easier for intel community to unmask american citizens caught up in surveillance reports. how is that legal? judge napolitano is here coming up next. ainsley: plus, the brand new

who possessed raw intelligence data in any one of the government's 17 agencies that it recognizes publicly as being intelligence agencies to share it with anybody else. that was extremely novel and it probably triggered the unmasking of then president-elect trump and general flynn. we now learned just last night that back in 2013, general clapper, the director of national intelligence secretly authorized members of congress to be unmasked by administrative officials who needed to know who was participating in the conversation. raw intelligence data person a talking to person b. they can't figure out who it is and a unmask and then b unmasked. unmasking, pardon me, is only lawful if it's done for national security purpose. if it's done for a political purpose, it's a felony. this is something that bob mueller should be investigating because the

ainsley: august hottest month. steve: welcome aboard. do you know who got burned yesterday? that man right there anthony scaramucci is out, the headline in the "new york post." va-mooch. if you come out here quickly i will show you my favorite headline of the day. it's not "the new york post." it is the daily news. adios whe moochacho. pete: appeared one of the first actions of the new collaboration between president trump and general kelly. based on reports, you mentioned this ainsley, everyone will be reporting inside the white house to general kelly as the chief of staff. steve: including ivanka and jared as well. there is a story in the "new york times" that apparently ivanka and jared had suggested for a new chief of staff that the president recruit deanna powell who is the deputy
4:03 am
national security advisor. but he said, you know what? i would really like john f. kelly instead. there is also a story in that same "new york times" that said that ivanka and jared essentially wanted scaramucci to squeeze out reince priebus. so he was brought on board to get rid of reince. but then you think about it, the president of the united states could fire his chief of staff then reince priebus any time he wanted to. didn't need scaramucci to do that. ainsley: having a general in that position, they are very disciplined. you don't have a four star general unless you take orders from other people. you start at the bottom. you work your way up. you please a lot of people to get that huge title. now he will be working for the commander-in-chief. i think together they will have a strong, discipline -- a strong work ethic and hopefully things will -- go ahead. pete: i'm sorry. will be successful. he also delivered. he has been a successful dhs secretary on the border. he was a successful commander
4:04 am
of southern command there he was part of the iraq surge as a marine commander. this is a guy who knows how to get things done. president trump respects that he channels the american people. the american people respect the military as president trump always has. this is the institution we should revere. let's bring them in to make it happen. steve: on his first day john f. kelly called in all of the white house staff and said i will impose a military sensibility here to bring order to it. it's interesting though, the "new york times" exgeneral leads broad shakeup. scaramucci ousted. assured of sweeping powers, kelly pushes to quell chaos. you will hear that word chaos a lot during the resuscitation of what happened yesterday. president trump tweeted this out and mentioned chaos in the mainstream media. ainsley: highest stock market ever. best economic numbers in years. unemployment lowest in 17 years. wages rising. border secure, supreme court, no white house chaos.
4:05 am
pete: chaos is a journalism word as editorial world, right? steve: chaos means like the white house is falling downstairs. pete: sarah huckabee sanders had a nice way of making sense of what real chaos looked likes a opposed to the white house. take a listen. >> 10 days ago anthony scaramucci was introduced as the new white house communications director. 10 days later he is out of a job. the president announced on twitter that there is no chaos at the white house. how would you describe what has happened over the past of ce of the past 10 days. how would you explain that not to be the case? >> i have said it before, if you want to see chaos come to my house with three preschoolers. this doesn't hold a candle to that. just to be clear, that's not an open invitation to come to my house. [laughter] if you guys want to schedule baby-sitting time, i will be
4:06 am
happy to work that out. ainsley: here's the thing. he has been in office for six months. we all expected, if you take a new position and you don't have any experience in politics, people are going to change occasionally. after six months he realizes, okay, this is working, this is not working. i'm going to make some adjustments. i'm going to make some changes. the liberal media has been saying the white house has been in chaos for six months. maybe they will start reporting that things are getting better. steve: between keep in mind as well. the president brought reince priebus on board. and he has been a disrupter, the president of the united states with his campaign and everything else. and the people who got him elected, essentially, a core group of people. you know who they are. but then once he got the nomination, then he brought in all the rnc people and it kind of got more establishmentee. and in fact when reince priebus was made the chief of staff, it was suggested that the main thing he was there for was to make sure that stuff got done up on capitol hill. so, is it a coincidence that
4:07 am
last week the senate said no, we are done, we can't pass healthcare, next thing you know reince priebus is looking for work. pete: that's a perfect point. the so-called mainstream media, the democrats, the establishment republicans. steve: simply look, you were there to do a job, you didn't couldn't do. i will get somebody who can. pete: they keep treating this guy like conventional politician. is he outsider. disrupter, a businessman. is he going to try something. if it doesn't work he is going to fix it and take another approach. that's what this dawn is and healthcare is not dead. initiatives are not dead. but to read headlines like that in the "new york times" where it says chaos. that's not reporting. that's editorializing. it's very different from what folks who are inside this white house say about what's happening. especially with general kelly in charge who is coming in to say we're going to make things happen. i'm the chief of the satisfy. the staff is going to report to me. i'm not going to change president trump because that's what got us here. we're going to move forward in a new day. ainsley: president has a message for congress.
4:08 am
if you don't get this passed no more subsidies. they are getting 73% break. steve: i want a 73% break. ainsley: they are getting 73% break and the president tweeted about it he said if obamacare is hurting people and it is, why shouldn't it hurt the insurance companies and why should congress not be paying what public pays? steve: right. also. apparently there are two other plans. lindsey graham is going to be with us in a little while. apparently the cbo is scoring his plan, which he will explain block grants money and sends it back to the states. apparently yesterday senator rand paul called the president of the united states and said hey, i have got this idea. did you realize have you executive authority where you could go ahead and allow people to break into big groups to essentially negotiate down lower prices? i don't know if the president had heard that before. but rand paul now says the president has got the authority. if congress isn't going to do anything, he can do it with a pen and a phone. ainsley: it puts power in the people's hands. and they are not regulated by big government when that
4:09 am
happens. for instance, if you are a member of aarp and you have retired, can you get a group together, small businesses or individuals. you can get a group together and negotiate a better deal, a better plan with obamacare with your insurance to drop the rates. that's amazing. pete: of course. you want the true repeal and replace which is what republicans have promised all along. any incremental step on free market reforms where markets work and prices come down as a result is a good plan. these plans are moving the ball down that field. ainsley: we asked you guys what you thought. do you want to read some emails? steve: i want to read herb's tweet. they had 8 years to plan for this. they have broken every promise to voters they have made every one. referring to members of congress. pete: that's right. mary lowe tweeted this take away their healthcare to members of congress and benefits. then they will term limit themselves. i like that. ainsley: tracy tweeted and she said give us a plan. let us all read it please ask for help. stop arguing and pointing
4:10 am
fingers and go to work. pete: i'm telling you if we can get the rules to apply to members of congress just like the american people, they will suddenly get things done when they feel the hurt. like the same idea. give v.a. healthcare to every single member of congress and see how soon v.a. gets cleaned up. right now they live on a whole another planet. steve: i was talking to a staff member of somebody who works up on capitol hill. they were horrified that their insurance because it's subsidized would go up 75% well it's kind of like well we didn't want it to begin with, but we were forced to get obamacare. it's a stink bomb. ainsley: if you don't want it, have you got to pay the penalty. steve: cannot afford to use it cannot afford to buy it. pete: tell me who is unconcerned about that member of congress not concerned about healthcare. american people voted to send them there to do something and didn't do anything about it sorry. boom. steve: he just did a mike drop right there. ainsley: jillian, people in nashville coming up later

that the president's agenda is moving forward. the only people that are talking about this. the mainstream media they want to talk about the chaos inside the white house. they don't want to talk about what's actually going out in the real world which is the stock market is through the roof, right? businesses are growing. we need to get tax reform done. everyone in middle america is going to be better off in the trump administration than the clinton administration. let's take the focus and the spotlight off the administration and small changes taking place and put 'back on america which is what really needs. ainsley: that's not a reality show. >> if anything president trump delivers ratings better than anybody. steve: corey, there is an item in the front page of the "new york times" today that says follow me, folks, because have you got to connect a lot of dots. it says jared and jawnk brought scaramucci on board to get rid of reince. scaramucci liked his comments initially about reince but realized it was received so badly he had to get squeezed out. anything to that? >> i think sarah huckabee
4:27 am
sanders talked about it yesterday. the type of language that anthony used in that article that he talked to on, with the reporter is really inappropriate. i think the administration looked at that and said this is probably not the right thing for us. now, anthony, look, he is unapologetic in your face kind of guy. i know the mooch very well. i like the guy. he is that new york tough kind of guy. there is the type of respect that you need to have particularly -- it wasn't just against reince priebus but also steve bannon was targeted in that. you have to remember these are your colleagues you have to work with every day. difficult to call someone out and show up to work the next day. steve: why was reince priebus fired. >> i think the president wants to have the opportunity to have his agenda moved forward. by bringing general kelly in. steve: because he didn't get anything done. >> i think the president's frustration was probably with the amount of leaking coming from the white house. and at the end of the day, and i have been there, steve, the top of the food chain, the person on the top of this is going to be responsible for everything that happened down further. and if reince couldn't control
4:28 am
the leaks and those leaks continue to permeate. he is the one ultimately responsible. general kelly was brought in to make sure those leaks don't continue. ainsley: anthony scaramucci indicated in two of his leaks anthony scaramucci would be the leaker. is that why he was ousted. or the timing of this, healthcare, repeal and replace did not pass. the straight repeal did not pass. and then all of a sudden the chief of staff is out. >> i don't ever think it's just one thing when it comes to the president, right? it's a compilation of things. it's the totality of the circumstances. and if you look at what it was, the president for the last couple weeks who has talked about the need to make a change. he waited for the healthcare vote to happen. that healthcare vote was unsuccessful, which is something that the administration wanted to get done. the repeal bill. that didn't happen. so what that means was let's look at a new opportunity to go forward. let's bring somebody else in who is going to reenergize my team and move in the same direction. pete: your commentary has emphasized ultimately let trump be trump. ultimately everyone should be reporting to the chief of staff.
4:29 am
as opposed to having back chanelsd. it's reported that's what's going to happen. do you believe that that will happen? >> here's what i think. i think we have got a four star general taking command to the white house. this is a person who literally went and took over fallujah, right? this guy is a no joke no games kind of guy. is he going to walk into that staff. is he going to say everybody, whether you are the chief strategist or chief cook and bottle washer, you now report to me. my leadership style. my management style is you will still have access to the president is my guess. i haven't spoken to general kelly. i want to understand what's going on. if there are going to be policies and procedures that affect the american people. i want to be aware of it and have the opportunity to weigh in on those if that's what i want to do. as the chief of staff, is he going to oversee that staff. i don't think is he going to look to change donald trump because that would be a mistake. donald trump has been successful at everything he has done for the last 40 years whether it's real estate. whether it's books, whether it's television. whether it's running for the first time or his kids. no one wants to change donald trump. >> you have to let trump be trump. do you have to have the right
4:30 am
staff around him to give him the ability to be successful. steve: exit question, communications director, some have suggested, kellyanne conway, jason miller, there is a suggestion maybe they will leave it open for a while or kelly might bring somebody from the department of homeland security. do you want to say anything about this? >> look, i think any of those would be good choices. i think it's up to the general to decide who is best to work for his team. i would caution them on this. it has to be someone who understands the trump communication side of things. what i mean by that is how the president communicates. steve: kellyanne would be great. >> kellyanne is great at what she does jason is a friend of mine. i think he would be cautious. i would caution them to bring someone in from the outside and never had a relationship and saying they are going to be the communications director to control the president. the president doesn't need to be controlled. set greatest communicator we have ever had. pete: it's not controlling it's channeling. steve: thank you very much. >> thank you. pete: there is new attorney general in town and jeff sessions says it's okay to use

4:46 am
would spend in washington on healthcare, block grant it back to the states and let them design healthcare systems closer to your family. this would empower state choice. it would empower consumers. if you don't like obamacare, i don't know who you complain to. ainsley: how much money would they get each state? >> we will do away with the individual mandate. we will do away with employer mandate. we are going to repeal the medical device tax but take the other taxes and we are going to block grant it back, it's about $500 billion, governors are excited. they met in the white house. and here's what the governors have told me. if you give me this money and flexibility, i will take care of the people in south carolina better than washington would take care of the people in south carolina. president trump is all over. this we haven't tried this. we need to keep trying on healthcare. if we fail on healthcare, we're going to fail on taxes. we have never had a vote on this idea. we should have a new policy called block granting and we should have a new process so people can understand what we are actually doing. peter peter senator sounds like a good idea. a lot of ideas that senators
4:47 am
have promise have had not crossed the 50 vote threshold in the senate. >> i think this one will. i would hate to be a republican who said to their constituents i don't want more money coming back to my state. i don't want more flexibility when it comes to providing healthcare to people in south carolina, you name the state. under obamacare, four states get 40% of the money. california, new york, massachusetts and maryland. they are 20% of the population, they get 40% of the money. how do you justify that if you are in west virginia? under my plan, west virginia gets 43% more dollars, more money, more flexibility. ainsley: sounds like a good plan. steve: can we vote on it? >> yeah. hello. somebody vote on it we need to vote again. president trump should take our subsidies away from us as members of congress if we don't deliver. steve: do you take it. >> i'm in tricare. yeah, take their subsidies away interest them. after 33 years in the military i have healthcare through the military. i will be punished. punishable me in any way you think is appropriate if i can't fix your healthcare. you sent us up here, the american people to repeal and
4:48 am
replace obamacare. this is the end of single pair healthcare. if you take the money and the power out of washington. steve: absolutely. >> and give it to the states. that's the end of bernie sanders' dream. there will never be single pair healthcare. the money and policy is out of washington. ainsley: the republicans have a lot of pressure on them because you have to get it right. if you don't then it's another obamacare and it will be awful and disastrous. this takes the pressure off of all of you. if you put the money in the hands of the governors, then you are scot-free and the governors are in trouble if they can't figure it out. >> how about this idea, government closer to the people we generally believe works. if you go into a hospital and you don't receive the care you would like, who do you complain to on oh. iif the state is responsible for healthcare you call up your state house representative who more likely than not goes to the same hospital you go to. you call the governor's office up and say you know they did a good here, they did a bad job there it empowers the consumer. under obamacare you are lost

4:50 am
doocy one wanted medicaid expansion and one didn't. they come behind this idea. you know what i did differently? i didn't look to washington. i looked outside the town. and they tell me, please give us the power. you know, we can do more with the money. so, if governor doocy is behind this idea. i think we are well on our way. john mccain made a good point. you didn't know what we were voting on. the skinny bill came up at 10:00 at night to be voted on. take this idea with mike lee and ted cruz's idea of more flexibility. using health savings accounts. put it in a committee for the whole country to look at. debate. talk, vote, bring it back on the floor. >> that's what john mccain was saying. let's have a process worthy of the united states senate. a new process, a new bill. president trump is right not to give up. mr. president, if you are watching this, stay on us. we got until september the 30th, we can do this. pete: great message. ainsley: give senator mccain our best. >> i will. he will be back.

pete: well the naacp issuing a travel warning, get this, for the state of missouri. claiming racism is so rampant that minorities shouldn't go there. ainsley: it comes as the state is set to enact a new law that's going to make it harder to file discrimination lawsuits. steve: here with this we have got this morning the executive director of the black sphere and fox news contributor kevin jackson. tell us about why the naacp is issuing this travel advisory for a minorities thinking about visiting the show me state. >> this came out while i was in new york. so as you guys can imagine i'm afraid to go home. [laughter]
4:55 am
because the travel advisory. you know, it's insane. so the state wanted to get caught up with the federal laws with respect to discrimination in this regard. and the pendulum as we know in america has swung so far in this regard that the governor decided and the legislature decided we can't let frivolous lawsuits occur. ferguson is a perfect example where that happened. where supposedly this there was egregious things happening to blacks in traffic stops. a town 68% black miraculously have a lot of blacks being stopped for traffic stops, right? and ironically there were nine other municipalities that have higher populations of blacks that were more egregious than ferguson but they singled ferguson out, of course because of the darren wilson thing. have you seen this pendulum swing so far and the state decided you know what? we can't have frivolous lawsuits all the time. by the way, if you really want to issue a travel warning, i think the naacp should start in areas of chicago, maybe the
4:56 am
south side, the west side. so, you know, i think america is just sickened of this run to could these types of things. pete: they put out a statement from their naacp president cheryl clay saying. this our ongoing issues of racial profiling, discrimination, harassment and excess violence towards people of color have been further exacerbated by the passage and signing of this senate bill 43. what's your response to her? >> again, if she looks at the actual laws. like, for example, when ferguson was being accused of this type of thing where they would say you are targeting blacks, there were nine other municipalities that had higher populations of blacks that were run by black legislatures who were doing exactly what ferguson was doing times two. steve: they are just updating the law. >> yeah, essentially. steve: bringing it up to the times. >> to the times to the federal standards. again, i think in america, people are tired of watching these types of things happen where, you know, every time something like this occurs,

that was a mistake. they turn it over to capitol hill. he needed to carry that ball across the finish line himself. steve: yeah, but mitch mcconnell personally asked the president of the united states stay out of this. i got it. >> yeah, who cares. i mean, mitch mcconnell predicted that donald trump invariably behind closed doors was going to go down in flames in november. who was right during the 2016 campaign about the pulse of the people on issue after issue? donald trump was right. these guys were wrong time and again during the most critical election season of the last 30 years. so his instincts, the president's instincts are usually spot on on these issues. i think he needs to follow his instincts on policy. and that means sometimes you're going to have to get into the policy. i know he doesn't like these long meetings, and i understand that. but if it's four or five points to health care freedom, tax care freedom, tax reform freedom, that message could be very compelling with antidotes, a motion, real

appropriate if i can't fix your health care. you sent us up here, the american people to repeal and replace health care. this is the end of single pair health care. if you take the power out of washington and give it to the states, that's the end of bernie sanders dream. they'll never be single health care because the money and policy is out of washington. >> laura is senator graham the white horse on this? >> i like the idea of removing the power base from the city. it consistently -- that's been a better approach on a variety issues, of course education, and i like this idea. here's the problem, of course. is that the states, including people like john kasich who's all over tv triumphantly it seems the last few days, they've gotten addicted of these huge up ticks in medicaid spending. they want it to flow back to the states. that money has to be capped or we're going to run out of money. so if you can get these governors to agree to a capped
5:08 am
amount of block granting year by year with very minimal growth and spending, then that might be more interesting. i like the instinct of lindsey graham here because it removes the lobbyists, the consultants, all of these people in washington who drive the debate. the insurance companies, the pharmaceutical companies, their stocks are way up. why do you think? because they knew nothing was going to change. they've been making a lot of money off of an anticompetitive environment in health care. that has to change. that has to change. ainsley: he said it's called state choice. your voice. and he said the democratic governors or all governors could only use the money on health care. they couldn't use it on infrastructure or building bridges or whatever. so we'll see. it does sound like a good plan, but they will have to get specific. >> they have to get 51 votes. good luck. >> i frankly do not know what will satisfy susan collins. pete: that's right. ainsley: don't you think, though, she has no choice because this will take the power away from them, and put it in the hands on the governors at the state level.
5:09 am
>> ainsley is so nice that she thinks that -- you're so nice. and you're so trusting. ainsley, i've been around washington too long. ainsley: okay. what do you think will happen? >> they want the power to be here because that inflates their own egos, that inflates they're own position. ainsley: but if it fails, they don't win. they don't win the next reelection. steve: and also, laura, she loved the fact that when she went home, susan collins, there was this slow clap. she never gotten before, and she loved standing up to the establishment. >> she's in the heroes parade. ainsley: i remember asking you one time on air when we were talking about communications director and now that position's open again. i asked you if you want to do it. and i said are you sure? that would scare me to death. and it was actually sarah huckabee sanders position. to stand up there and you laughed and said, ainsley, are you serious. do you know me? would you want that job?
5:10 am
>> look, i'm not going to this morning negotiate, you know, a possible job in the administration. i have no idea what they're going to do. i have said consistently that given everything the country has afford me, all the opportunities i've gotten, i know it sounds, but that's what i believe. if i believe i can really make a difference in the agenda that i believe in, which is the president's agenda, then i would of course consider it. but i would not be set up to fail. i would not go into any job, whether it's the administration or any other job to be set up to fail. so that means you have to have really great people around you. it has to be a team. tired of the undercutting behind closed doors. that couldn't happen. steve: laura, we've got a fox news alert. we have just learned that jeff sessions, who there are has been much speculation about his future. he's actually called a press conference for friday to announce a crackdown on white house leaks. what do you think about that? >> i think it's terrific.
5:11 am
i think we need to jam up this leak machine that's been plaguing this administration. and not just white house leaks. it's leaks in the investigation, perhaps. we've seen this washington post story today about the russia meeting and who crafted a statement. we have a lot of people spilling leaks out to reporters. and you always have to look for the people who look good in the reporting. if you come off smelling like a rose in the washington post today, it's a good chance that you are in a circle of people who could have leaked the information to the washington post. steve: well, how about the fact that john f kelly yesterday on his first day was the first leak, and it was real in the pages that i think the washington post and apparently when comey got fired, general kelly called him up on the phone and said i can't believe that happened to you. i feel bad about it. i'm thinking of quitting department of homeland security. >> it might not have been him, though. people who love him and support him.
5:12 am
he's wildly popular inside the dhs among the new political appointees. they really love him. so i think people -- a lot of people didn't like the way comey was fired. i didn't like the way comey was fired. i think it was really stupid. i mean, i'm sorry. i've said that from the beginning. it caused all the problems. kelly is speaking truth to power on that. the president i think has to see it at this point that the people who have his best interest at heart who have been giving him advice since, you know, for the last two years, they're not bad people. they're trying to make him successful and have him be as successful as possible, knowing that his instincts are great. he had great political instincts. but he's not a lawyer. he shouldn't disavow what his lawyer's advice is. put a great legal team together, put a great communications team together, push the issues forward that got you elected. he'll be a successful president because he must me for this can you be. we have no other choice.

5:26 am
words to say; right? and so you and josh had what conversation about it? >> well, i brought it up to him about like a day after we got engaged, maybe, and i said i wanted to do it, and he said he thought it was a good idea, so we went ahead and did it. steve: but did you think it through? did you know, josh, that it was going to be so emotional the words she said? >> no. i didn't. well, one, i didn't know what the words i was going to say because i didn't want to know. steve: had you read those words, would you say i don't know if i'm going to be able to get through that? >> that's why i didn't want to read it. because i didn't want to have that on my mind trying to get through it. but, no, i didn't realize what reaction we would have gotten with this words. ainsley: caylee, it has to be so heartwarming to see his new stepmother live your child so much. >> it took a lot of trial and tribulations, i'm not going to lie. but to know that at the end of the day all she cares about is

5:36 am
thing for the white house. notice the president is sitting back saying, look, i'll let you guys work this out. meanwhile, i'll take you one step further. and the guest you had stuart varney a minute ago. the stock market and the labor market and the housing market are kicking on all cylinders. they're at record highs across the board. record highs. home prices. we have 153 million people working in america right now. never have there ever been more americans working and the stock market breaking new highs. i saw dan pfeiffer, the old communications director for obama say thank you, obama. no. no. that wasn't obama. these record highs have nothing to do with president obama. when you invest in your own company or business or home, you do it because you think the environment going forward is going to be profitable, not backwards. and what donald trump did is he came in, he did exactly what he said he was going to do. he rolled back regulations, taxes are important, and that's why things are up. steve: a lot of people are counting on tax -- are counting on the taxes being reformed or simplified. but, you know, eric, a lot of people were counting on the
5:37 am
republicans to do something about health care too, and they really didn't, you know, they dropped the ball. >> interesting. lindsey graham came on, and he said he had an idea about associations. not a bad idea, but then you have to go through the senate again and these obstructionist republicans including him and mccain never let them get to 50 votes. so that might not be the way. i know the new plan. the better option of lindsey's plan is what rand proposed to the president last night. rand paul said do it via executive order. allow -- use a pen the way obama did. allow associations to provide health insurance. you bring down the cost, you bring down competitiveness into the insurance market. you bring down cost that way, and then you work on the repeal and replace, and you get that forward. and guess what happens? the american people appreciate donald trump for doing it and the health insurance companies aren't crushing you with profits saying we didn't like it. i'll tell you. the reason why there's nothing
5:38 am
new in the republican health care bill is because it's a swamp, and their part of the swamp. ainsley: we had governor huckabee on yesterday, and he was talking about term limits, how they need to be shorter for congress for our leaders in washington. nancy pelosi was on with chris wallis, and you laugh because you know what she did. >> i do. ainsley: she gave herself a pat on the back. listen. >> let me say this. separate motion is a terrible thing, but somebody's got to do it. >> exactly. i agree with you on that. >> and the situation that we are in, i am a master legislator, i know the budget to the inth degree, i know the motivation of people. i respect the people who are in congress. i feel very confident about the support i have in my caucus. >> let me just -- >> i've never not been opposed within my caucus. >> what are the chances democrats win back the house in 2018 and if so, will you run for speaker? >> that's so unimportant. what is important is that we have the lively debate on a better deal. better pay, better jobs, and a better future.
5:39 am
steve: majority is unimportant for her. so that's the second time she called herself a master legislator, if you remember that. i think she likes it. and here's a note to the democrats. you should reelect nancy pelosi into the house. senate's going to gain seats. you might have a shot with the health care fail at the house. i would love to see nancy pelosi again because last time she was speaker of the house, she lost senate and 1,000 state legislative seats across the country as well. keep it up. we would love to see her. steve: some have suggested one of the reasons anthony scaramucci was brought in was to stop the leaks. maybe they were clogged up for a week, but he's gone now. but apparently jeff sessions, the attorney general, eric on friday is going to have a press conference to talk about how the government is going after the leakers. >> well, you see the shift that's happening? we've been now, tray gowdy suggesting another special counsel. not attack but looking into the democrats.
5:40 am
for a change, we haven't had that. jeff sessions wants to plug the leaks. this is a shift -- the trump administration has been taking incoming from everywhere and now they're starting to fire back. i think this is a great idea. i think general kelly will do what reince couldn't do and plug the leaks. i mean, i don't know. reince, he leaves and all of a sudden there's another leak about, you know, general kelly immediately happening. it just gets a little weird. pete: the beginning of one, giant counterpunch is your hope. >> it's about time. they've been taking them coming in trying to play nice and guess what? i wrote a book on the swamp because they have to fight back. trump has to drain the swamp and the swamp includes republicans. there's a reason health care bill wasn't any better than obamacare because the strongest lobby in dc is the health insurance, health care, and pharmaceutical lobbyists. they've got the most money to spend. why do you think nothing changed? well, they got to these legislatures. i'm still blown away, guys.
5:41 am
i'm going to say it and take a lot of heat. john mccain war hero flew across the country to start the health care debate because then voted negative on all three of the options. they failed. so why would you even start the debate. why would you do this to get your -- to -- you know, he was the 50th vote. mike pence had to break the tie to push the health care vote going forward. if it wasn't there, if he didn't like any of the plans, don't start. get a better bill before you start the debate. steve: well, lindsey graham was on this program, and he said he has talked to john mccain and john mccain would vote for his plan. eric, we're going to be watching you at 5:00. >> yes, sir. i'm going to ask him if he's going to be the next coms director. steve: he's downstairs napping in the greenroom. ainsley: thanks, guys. let's hand it over to jillian who has headlines for us. >> good morning. a fox news alert right now. two u.s. soldiers injured when

we send our kids out into the world, full of hope. and we don't want something like meningitis b getting in their way. meningococcal group b disease, or meningitis b, is real. bexsero is a vaccine to help prevent meningitis b in 10 to 25 year olds. even if meningitis b is uncommon, that's not a chance we're willing to take. meningitis b is different from the meningitis most teens were probably vaccinated against when younger. we're getting the word out against meningitis b. our teens are getting bexsero. bexsero should not be given if you had a severe allergic reaction after a previous dose. most common side effects are pain, redness or hardness at the injection site; muscle pain; fatigue; headache; nausea; and joint pain. bexsero may not protect all individuals. tell your healthcare professional if you're pregnant or if you have received any other meningitis b vaccines. ask your healthcare professional about the risks and benefits of bexsero and if vaccination with bexsero is right for your teen. moms, we can't wait.
