the jackpot is now $700 million. ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ r-o-c-k in the u.s.a. ♪ r-o-c-k in the u.s.a. ♪ r-o-c-k in the u.s.a. steve: rocking in phoenix last night that's what the president was. studio f here on the mezzanine level of "fox & friends." ainsley, welcome back from our nation's capitol. ainsley: thank you. brian: great job with the vice president yesterday. ainsley: thank you. i watched like a little bit of the speech and i had to go to bed. steve: watched this morning. ainsley: watched the whole thing. he spent like the first what do you say 30 minutes,
3:02 am
maybe, 15, 20 minutes talking about fake news, spinning his message and he gave several examples. steve: sure, do you know what he is trying to do recharge his base after 10 days width they'ring in charlottesville. he talked about the importance of unity as we are a nation of many races. if you missed it, we boiled down about a 1:42 of the good stuff. listen to this. >> i'm here tonight to send a message. we are fully and totally committed to fighting for our agenda and we will not stop until the job is done. and we are building a wall on the southern border, which is absolutely necessary. now, the obstructionist democrats would like us not to do it but, believe me, we have to close down our government. we're building that wall. the media can attack me, but where i draw the line is
3:03 am
when they attack you, which is what they do. when they attack, the decency of our supporters. it's time to expose the crooked media deceptions and to challenge the media for their role in fomenting divisions. these are truly dishonest people. and not all of them. not all of them. have you very good reporters. have you some very fair journalists. for the most part, honestly, these are really, really dishonest people. and they are bad people. and i really think they don't like our country. i really believe that. brian: the president last night saw the tel teleprompter and looked elsewhere. he ad-libbed his way almost through the entire thing. i talk to people who say he will sometimes give four speeches in a day and every speech will be different. last night he felt he was in his element. i thought also must be heartening to him supposed to have 3900 of one protest group.
3:04 am
the other had 2700 of another group. another prom missioned 1100 would show up. there weren't that many protesters on the outside basically in control. i think the other northwest works were dying for the protesters to be the story. instead, the president was himself. he addressed charlottesville directly. he talked about afghanistan directly. he also talked about the need to pass legislation without calling out mitch mcconnell and almost avoided talking about the senators from arizona. ainsley: right. the two senators from arizona have you senator john mccain and senator jeff flake u flake has been critical of him. even though he supports a lot of his agenda. steve: just because he wrote a book about him. ainsley: senator mccain, republicans needed his vote to pass healthcare repeal and replace and that didn't happen. steve: sure. you can understand by the with the of the united states would take aim at the senators even though he didn't name them by name. let's face it, unless he can get through the u.s. senate his legacy.
3:05 am
brian: he needs them. steve: absolutely. he needs them to be on his side. have you got to figure behind the scenes what we have seen from donald trump so far, he will talk to people one on one and ultimately, if if they do not do what he would like them to do because he feels like 89 legislation, for instance, repeal and replace was in the best interest of the united states, plan b, after talking to them nicely behind the scenes, is go ahead and talk about them in public. i think what he thinks is if he shames them in to doing the right thing for the people of arizona, in his estimation, they will. ainsley: you can either believe what he believes, which if i shame them in to doing this, they will listen to me. they will get on board. or many people said don't address them. don't talk about them. continue to unite the republican party like you did the night before. steve: that's the establishment way to do it. >> that's the establishment, absolutely. do you think he should have called them out. he said my advisors have basically said don't call them out by name. steve: he didn't. ainsley: i'm not. two senators in this case and one didn't pass
3:06 am
healthcare and other weak on borders u instance. brian: interesting tact for him to do instead of saying democrats should get on board in some states where your election is in jeopardy. i would use their names. joe manchin. you come to the white house you know we agree on everything. john tester. you know what's going on in the. what has senator mccaskill, you know what i did in your state. come on board without calling them out. that's what i thought last night was good. he insinuated i'm sure it was off script that senator mccain and jeff flake get on board. i would like you to get on board. he didn't alien nate. i think at the end of the day both of them agree with what he wants to do. steve: you would think so. they ran on that. when given the chance to repeal and replace, john mccain was a no vote. other things, it's interesting the president of the united states made it very clear that once the congress takes up the border
3:07 am
wall money, unless they get the billion something to support the construction on the wall. brian: 1.6. steve: he is willing to shut down the government over it he feels the people of the united states voted for that in the last november election. if they can't do it, you know, let's go ahead and it's game on. let's shut down government. ainsley: they passed a spending bill. so now it's going to go to the senate. whether or not it passes there, who knows. brian: the thing is, ainsley, the only reason why democrats don't want to do the wall because they are already on the record doing a wall, a fence, a barrier it would be a clear victory for the president. that to me is anti-american. steve: to your earlier point, why doesn't he take to senator tester and joe manchin because the democrats are united. they are really good at all being on the same page. they want to make sure next election they can say look we tried to work with donald trump and the republicans and we got nothing done. that's their game plan. the president himself last night talked about the
3:08 am
obstructionist democrats. because he will never get a yes out of them on big stuff. brian: you know we have had joe manchin on the show. steve: he never for the most part comes over to the republican side. brian: put him on the clock. senator joe manchin, you know we have talked about this. i want you to vote with me on that. come on. the people of west virginia who just now have a republican governor might say the same thing like hey, joe, why aren't you with the guy that we gave 40% with. ainsley: can't go to john mccain and the other two holdouts with healthcare you can't go with democrats because the republicans aren't together. brian: when it comes to infrastructure and tax reform, maybe he will be on board for that. steve: little bit later on we have some more videotape for you because there was great sound bites. espn, the sports network which is very politically correct, yesterday removed as a college football play by play announcer for the upcoming university of virginia william and mary
3:09 am
game that man right there. brian: why, because he has a bad attitude? steve: his name they felt robert lee too offensive to some viewers. they said we regret the play by play of a game has become an issue. brian: they had no choice. i'm kidding. you have got to be kidding me. the fact that his name is robert lee had to move him out to youngstown, ohio because you thought it would inflame the people of charlottesville. what is it that you think an asian american's name robert lee would set people off because minus the e reminds you of a confederate general? ainsley: if you watched the name and heard the announcer say the name would you think about it. brian: i would shut it off. ainsley: that would not resonate it was a confederate general. granted is t. is the uva game and charlottesville. let us know what you think about this. steve: espn said we collectively made the decision with roberts to switch games as the tragic events in charlottesville
3:10 am
were unfolding simply because of the coincidence of his name. in that moment it felt right to all parties. it's a shame this is even a topic of conversation and we regret that who calls play-by-play for a football game has become an issue. brian: don't put it on us u to allow billie s. grant i just made that hupp. ulysses s. grant. ainsley: no is s. ulysses grant. brian: why are they putting it on us for making a big deal. this is the most farcical thing i have seen. ainsley: could this guy sue espn because his name? just because his name is he not getting the job because of his name. steve: they are moving him to another game. there was a fellow on the name of twitter chris lesch
3:11 am
said dropped his name because it sounds racist? is anybody named lee safe? bruce, lee jeans,. brian: lee majors, right? i haven't seen him on television, why not? ainsley: i can't believe this is a story. steve: espn today, i guarantee it. ainsley: robert is a very popular name and so is lee. jillian: am i okay to do the headlines. brian: i'm sure you you will offend somebody. jillian: i offend with you my name i apologize. peaceful protests erupt into chaos following the president's speech in arizona. police using tear gas and pepper spray to control thousands in the crowds. some protesters reportedly throwing rocket bottles and rocks outside the convention center. some people tears streaming down their face. four people under arrest. the seventh navy commanders. according to the navy they

hey, i've got the trend analysis. hey. hi. hi. you guys going to the company picnic this weekend? picnics are delightful. oh, wish we could. but we're stuck here catching up on claims. but we just compared historical claims to coverages. but we have those new audits. my natural language api can help us score those by noon.
3:15 am
great. see you guys there. we would not miss it. watson, you gotta learn how to take a hint. i love to learn.
3:16 am
watson, you gotta learn how to take a hint. we demand a lot from our eyes every day. i should know. i have chronic dry eye caused by reduced tear production due to inflammation. so i use restasis multidose. it helps me make more of my own tears, with continued use, twice a day, every day. it's also what i prescribe to my patients who have this condition. restasis multidose helps increase your eyes' natural ability to produce tears, which may be reduced by inflammation due to chronic dry eye. restasis multidose did not increase tear production in patients using anti-inflammatory eye drops or tear duct plugs. to help avoid eye injury and contamination, do not touch the bottle tip to your eye or other surfaces. wait 15 minutes after use before inserting contact lenses. the most common side effect is a temporary burning sensation.
3:17 am
your eyes. your tears. ask your eye doctor about restasis multidose. steve: president trump message to the people in arizona. how did it register. maslansky and partners just put the president to the dial test. goonk good morning to you. >> good morning. steve: late night. >> i appreciate the workers doing that. steve: this was the first rally since what happened in charlesville happened in charlottesville. what did the president say? watch the lines. >> it's time for all of us to remember that we are all on the same team. we are all americans and we all believe right now in america first.
3:18 am
steve: okay. >> so you can see there republican base strongly supporting him gave him an a minus. independence and democrats gave him a c. this is a message we should all get behind. we are one america and want to come together. what the country is asking for the president to unify them. right off the bat people were not willing to listen there was lot of negativity out there. it was a tough night for him. steve: next sound bite talks about the president of the united states. look, i went to washington to help the folks. watch this. >> i came to washington for you. your dreams are my dreams your hopes are my hopes. and your future is what i'm fighting for each and every day. it's so important. >> so you can see there, again, the republicans really liked what he had to say. they gave a minus. independents and democrats c minus. big story for me out of all of, this i wants have been tracking as you know, steve,
3:19 am
we republicans all along lines of democrats, what they have said is this is not the time to make this but, president trump. steve: while they were tracking closer to the democrats, democrats generally with your dial questions give him an f. at least they are in the cs. >> in the cs and ds, that's right. steve: meanwhile it was a case of beat the press for a while last night. here is the president now to talk about time to expose the, you know, the crooked media. >> it's time to expose the crooked media deceptions and to challenge the media for their role in fomenting divisions and, yes,. [cheers] >> and, yes, by the way, they are trying to take away our history and our heritage. you see that. steve: all right. >> you can see that republicans his base really loved. this they gave it an a while
3:20 am
at the same time independence and democrats gave it a d. what i heard over and over again from folks was enough with the media bashing. we get that they are not being fair to you. we get that's frustrating but right now it's time to heal a wounded country. steve: indeed. by looking at your grades though it looks like his base, who responded during your poll loved it. >> the base was right lock and step with him had. what he is losing is those independents and fence sitters. that's important for him moving forward. they want to hear about healthcare. they don't want to hear about blame games. steve: what do you think email us on friends@foxnews.com also we are on twitter and facebook. what nancy pelosi has to say about obamacare. dr. nicole saphier is on that. she is with ainsley. ♪ how can i forget you girl ♪ there is always something there to remind me ♪ always something there to

killed after accidently setting off a bomb a day before the attacks. ainsley? ainsley: thank you, brian. the secret is out now, congressman keith ellison revealing where nancy pelosi really stands on single pair healthcare. listen. >> is anybody right now. h.s. -- single pair healthcare act. ainsley: why won't she say so in public? here to weigh in is dr. nicole saphier. >> thanks for having me today. ainsley: for folks who aren't familiar with the term single pair, what does it mean? >> single pair is really a blanket term. it can mean multiple things and varies across the world. when you talk about single pair you mean government healthcare. one person providing health
3:26 am
coverage. ainsley: we minds me of the u.k. we have heard some stories where that family with the child. the parents couldn't decide if she should stay on life support. tell the folks with some of the problems at home with what's happening for u.k. >> the argument for single pair it does sound wonderful. ainsley: everyone is covered. >> not surprising that nancy pelosi in private may be for single pair but the argument collapse when you say talk about the taxation on the people. the united states can't afford it what's going on right now in the u.k., so the u.k., the british system is very similar to our v.a. system, meaning that you have the government insurance. and then you also have the doctors and nurses who are all employed by the government. it's really cost rationing. people are saying medicare for all. it's not medicare for all. medicare functions because we have a robust private market that offsets those costs. it's really medicaid for all. so cost rationing. what you are seeing in the u.k., someone waiting for a knee surgery, say, a knee or hip surgery. in the united states if you have an injury it's 3 to 4 weeks. in the u.k. you waited up to aer year.
3:27 am
ainsley: and if you are a smoker. >> now they are saying they need to cut back on costs so if you are refusing to quit smoking or overweight you are actually not getting the surgery at all. they can't afford it. ainsley: nancy pelosi in private has said according to congressman keith ellison has said she is in favor of single pair. then in 2016 she did an interview with chuck todd she said i love single pair. then few months later in june of 2017, she says she doesn't think it's a good move strategically. so why is she dodging this? why is she flip flopping or why in private is she saying she is for it and in public she is not? >> it's philosophical. it sounds great you want everyone tore have coverage. having health insurance coverage is not synonymous with medical care. you cannot reform the health insurance market without delivering the way our health is -- we have so much costs. we he spend so much more rest of the world we don't have as great as outcomes except on cancer care. we are doing great on there
3:28 am
she knows we can't afford single pair in current environment. we need medical care reform at the same time concurrently with our insurance reform. ainsley: keith ellison says she won't say it publicly. >> blue dog democrats know we can't fiscally afford this. ainsley: thank you, dr. saphier. divults has to explain why she didn't fire i.t. worker who may have stolen american secrets. >> i think it's important to point out what he has been arrested and charged with is unrelated to his employment. ainsley: and her excuses don't end there. plus, p.c. police taking things to an outrageous new level as espn is pulling that sports commentator from a uva football game all because his name is robert lee. david webb is here to talk about that. walking into the studio with steve and brian. we'll talk to him coming up ♪ in this crazy town

of yesterday. who is going to show up to protest outside? if you are going to go to a big show you want to be inside where they have got airconditioning. >> little snowflakes don't do so well in the hot weather. i call them did and delions in the summer because they pop up on your sidewalk and you can't get rid of them. there is a real story to be told here. the real story is what is going on with leftist protesters, these anti-american, anti-capitalist protesters who reach out to every group and some guys have wanted to do the right thing for them but never come with solutions. never want to do anything. they want to tear down society. they are doing damage to the debate out there. i know we are going to talk about this robert lee story at espn, but, that's literally a great point of where the debate has not gone in this country. ainsley: group antifa leftist group. now there is a group that wants them to be called a terrorist organization. in order to get that title or get the president's response at least they have
3:35 am
to get 100,000 signatures on this petition. they have gotten well over that. they have gotten 160,000 signatures. so will the president respond and do you think antifa should be a terrorist organization? >> no, i don't think at this point they have gone that far. they are definitely an anti-american group. they are not just an anti-trump group. frankly why give them the oxygen? that's my point. just ignore them. people can sign petitions all they want. in barack obama's years there were petitions that were filed by different people. he didn't respond. it's a big nothing burger of a story. it goes away. brian: one thing they want to say hey the right should disavow these white supremacists and they should the kkk and they should. do you think it would be beneficial for democrats to disavow that group? >> it would be beneficial if there were any blue dog democrats really left in leadership. notice i separate the leadership from the elected officials. there are plenty of blue dog democrats who have elected at different levels of government in our country. the problem is the leadership with tom perez, with keith ellison, debbie

i would ask america to just google west bellyme 2009 to 2016. civil rights mayor of charlottesville. misogynistic. frankly they would fire me the things he has tweeted. misogynistic, hate-filled tweets, there is history between the two. of the decisions that were made and i'm getting complaints from police officers that were in charlottesville. and they were complaining about the stand down order. the mayoral agency and council decided to do and areas they put them together, there were bad decisions there regardless of the outcomes. steve: biggest problem to begin with they put them together in big towns. what they do is if you are going to have two different sides you keep them on two different sides. >> they also broke through. not only did they let them come too close together. they have have a right. all sides have their constitutional rights. don't get me wrong. but the fact is when you let them get that close and they begin to kick down the

opinion. brian: i misinterpreted your breath for being done. i apologize. you took a deep breath and i started to talk. it won't happen again. there is pressure on these sites after kkk and white supremacist groups begin to cohort in charlottesville they felt there was pressure on them to start taking down hate groups, the isis, you understand their conundrum there? >> yes, i do. how do you define hate speech? they are defining it as anything that's not in agreement with the left. steve: what is jihad watch? what do they do? >> jihad watch watches jihadis, watches the extreme islamic movement, takes a look at them and they have been labeled as being extreme hostility to muslims. that qualifies as hate, therefore, they were initially banned from papal. ainsley: when i read this story at first jihad watch. maybe let's think about this and give papal the benefit of the doubt maybe they saw

when it was alveda king and the vice president. by the president got out there it was like a rock concert. steve: it was. keep in mind the folks stood outside wit where it was 105, 107 degrees. there were protesters outside. nothing really big though. and this was the first rally after the protests in charlottesville. and the president in the united states made it very clear at the outseth that we are a nation of many races and unity. but he also went on, you know, he went on a tear about the media in a way i don't think any president has in a long time. brian: i was hoping he wouldn't. i was hoping he would just move on from that because it's pretty clear that "times," cnn and msnbc has dug in. steve: he feels they have done him wrong. >> he said this is what i said in the last three speeches i made what's going on in charlottesville. the media is spinning it listen to what he said. >> i'm here tonight to send
4:03 am
a message. we are fully and totally committed to fighting for our agenda and we will not stop you until the job is done. [cheers and applause] >> you always understood what washington, d.c. did not. our movement is a movement built on love. what happened in charlottesville strikes at the core of america. so, this is me. it has no place in america. i'm talking about hatred, bigotry and violence. remember they said well, he wasn't specific enough. why wasn't he more specific? abc this morning, and little george stephanopoulos talking to nikki haley, right? little george. so he talked about it for like that much. then he goes let's get back to charlottesville. charlottesville. and do you ever notice when i go on and i will put out like a tweet or a couple of
4:04 am
tweets, he is in a twitter storm again. i don't do twitter storms. if you want to discover the source of the division in our country, look no further than the fake news and the crooked media. i didn't say i love you because you're black or i love you because you're white. or i love you because you're from japan or you're from china, or you're from kenya. or you are from scotland or sweden. i love all the people of our country. oh, that's so funny. look back there the live red lights, they are turning those suckers off fast, i will tell you. they are turning those lights off fast. steve: so there you have the president of the united states circumstantial blaming the media for the backlash. as we learned last week he said the reason he came out later he was reluctant -- not reluctant. he did not name the groups involved initially was because it was breaking news. didn't know exactly who was involved.
4:05 am
next day though came out taking shots at white supremacists, kkk, and neo nazis as well. ainsley: when he was talking about the media and how outraged he was with them spinning the story and taking his words out of context, he pointed to the media up there. he said all those guys basically on this platform or in the rafters and the whole crowd, this huge crowd turns around and they look at the media and they go boo! and one guy in particular was pointing. steve: cnn changt for a while. ainsley: that's right. brian: doesn't make me comfortable to be honest. i don't feel comfortable with 15,000 people turning around screaming at me. it could be, you know, could have another president or another leader pointing at you. how would you feel if had you to leave that arena then. steve: i think we have had that in the past. donald trump is a guy who when he has got an enemy, and he feels like he has been attacked, is he going to hit them back 10 times harder. we know that. ainsley: right. steve: also, one of the things he made very clear is
4:06 am
he did talk a little bit about the senators from arizona without naming them. at the same time, a big shot at the senate in general, and unless he gets the money to build the wall, at least start the construction of the wall, which he promised the american people, there can be trouble. watch. >> and we are building a wall on the southern border, which is absolutely necessary. [cheers and applause] [chanting: build that wall] >> let me be very clear, to democrats and congress who oppose the border wall and stand in the way of border security. you are putting all of america's safety at risk. believe me, we have to close down our government. we're building that wall. brian: because one of the reasons they wouldn't build a wall since it doesn't enhance security the president would have checkmark on agenda.
4:07 am
for chuck schumer and company not to give him that simply because it would be a victory i think goes against what's in the best interest of the american people. ainsley: you might want to know what is the status of the wall the house is has passed spending bill. that's fine we will give you that faces uncertainty in the senate. we know what happened in the senate with healthcare. whether or not they will have the votes to pass the money for the wall. brian: he did say i need in some areas it's got to be translucent or an actual way to see what's happening on the other side. ainsley: can't be tunnels built or way to climb it. brian: that's what israel did. they put a wall underneath the ground to stop the tunnels coming in from gaza. we have to do something similar. you have a bunch of engineers on the other side trying to pull drug money into our country. steve: some of the things discussed he did hint he would be pardoning sheriff joe arpaio who was convicted of contempt of court because he disregarded a federal judge's order on immigration. also, the president said regarding nafta, he hinted they might scrap it unless
4:08 am
they renegotiate it. and tax reform, he promised to pass it. brian brian right. i think that if he goes on these series of events and talks about tax reform and whether it's immigration reform or infrastructure, i think people have to cover it. especially when the details come out from steve mnuchin i think in a couple of weeks and mick mulvaney about specifics in the tax proposals. ainsley: if tax reform doesn't pass you have no one to thank but democrats. all these family paying taxes we all want more money in the pocketbooks so we can make decisions where it goes. brian: where to cut it where the rubber hits the road. if they want to bring democrats, in democrats have to come in and say this is what i have done and i will sign on. ainsley: they get so much money. who was it? it was rex tillerson when he took over. wasn't it rex tillerson who took over, it was before he was secretary of state. it was maybe, i'm sorry, department of labor. i think they were going to say we're going to cut your budget and he agrees. we can do this because they get so much money. and then we have heard in
4:09 am
the past they were throwing big parties and having these conventions down in hawaii with our federal tax dollars. the shrimp on the treadmill we all remember that. there are ways that you can cut so we all get more money in our wallets. steve: it's all about priorities. today will mark the third day in the row the president is going to refer to race in the united states. of course, on monday, he was there at fort myer across the river from the white house talking about it in front of the folks who were gathered there to hear his afghanistan plan and last night he talked about race and unity and today, 2:45. you will see eastern time here on the fox news channel, the president will be at the 99th annual american legion national convention out in reno, nevada. some of the comments that have already been released he is going to say it is time to heal the wounds that have divided us. brian: very interesting to see how he stands with dean heller who is going to be in a very tough re-election, the republican senator, who did vote in the end for healthcare reform.
4:10 am
so i wonder if he is going to do that or call him out. ainsley: we will be watching. you can tune in to our channel we will have it for you. jillian mele has some headlines for us. not a forecast. jillian: not a forecast. good wednesday morning. we're getting there. hope your morning off is a good start. we do begin with a fox news alert. brand new images of navy divers frantically searching for sailors several but not all bodies have been recovered. the navy dismissing the seventh fleet commander in the wake of the tragedy saying they no longer have confidence of in vice admiral's ability to command. this is the fleet's second deadly incident in less than three months. los angeles wants to sue the department of justice over the sanctuary city crackdown. the city attorney says its unconstitutional for the trump administration to withhold funding to places that do not cooperate with federal immigration authorities. l.a. officials want to join a lawsuit filed by san francisco earlier this

month. chicago and the state of california also suing the doj. >> all right. things get a little hairy between two long-time friends on twitter. doesn't it always? president trump's budget director mick mulvaney throwing shade wishing congressman trey gowdy happy birthday with a collage of pictures with what do you get for somebody on their 60th birthday? a raiser and a comb. quickly firing right back, saying quote i'm just a couple of haircuts away from equaling the number of staff departures by your white house colleagues. i get it. you're hard to work with mulvaney's response, quote, if i could defund your haircuts, i would. guys, in my opinion this is when social media is the absolute best when you can joke around. steve: too bad more people don't joke around on it. jillian: i know. got to get more people on that train. steve: thank you very much. ainsley: more on the number of u.s. naval crashes overseas. we know it wasn't a cyber attack. why do these keep happening?

4:17 am
where it did back on the port app. side. this is indicative they failed to maintain course and speed. operating where they were that can be a narrow channel in some points. i think we will need to figure out where was the ship? who was maneuvering, what speeds were they going? who was notified on the ship because clearly there was once again, like the uss fitzgerald, a short fall in communication on board that allowed that tanker to get that close and hit them. ainsley: what's your message to the parents of these sailors that are lost at sea or that have died as a result of this? it just seems like we were -- are we blaming washington? who is at fault and what's your message to these parents? >> well, first and foremost my thoughts and prayers are with the family and crew of john s. mccain. they are the ones that are going to live with the burdennible forever that their sailors were lost at sea. but they need to turn now and while the seventh fleet commander mayberry some responsibility having had
4:18 am
four collisions, we need to look back here in washington. quite frankly when it comes to training and i will give you a quick example, when i started out as a young division officer, i went to school for 16 weeks up in newport, rhode island to get trained on all the basics of how to go to sea and operate safely. nowadays they hand them a cd rom, tell them to go to their ships and go forth and do good. the training burden is out now on the ships which is more time, more maintenance and when they are undermanned that's part of the problem. we have gone from having three lookouts on the ship now to just having one. these kinds of short falls where we have cut and cut and cut over years, even beyond the obama administration is now coming home and some admiral's promotion is now being measured in the lost of lives of sailors at sea. ainsley: you mentioned four collisions, three of the four since january have been the seventh fleet and the latest two have rulted in the death of 17 sailors. we have, i think we have a graph to show you the last
4:19 am
four recent collisions on january 31st, may 9th there was one. june 17 at&t and august 21st. you say cuts and short falls are to blame. what's your message to the president if he is watching this morning? >> the president right now needs to mandate that the services but especially the navy come up with a strategy that can be tied to poor structures so they can go forth and say this is what we need for our navy. if they can't afford to have the neigh that we need to safeguard u.s. national security interests, then define for the american people what is the risk that we are incurring by not doing that, by not being able to operate and train safely to keep sailors alive when they are doing routine operations at sea or going forward to the tip of the spear whether it's in the straight of whstrait of hormuz n the south china sea. until we get that four structure base strategy we will continue to live in a budget-based world and it will cost lives. ainsley: i agree with you. we can't afford to lose our
4:20 am
sailors' lives because of negligence or because of short falls or cuts. that's ridiculous. we owe them more. these are our heroes. thank you, commander. >> thank you, ainsley. ainsley: james clammer says president trump is a possible national security threat and is no longer fit to be commander-in-chief. p.c. police taking things to outrageous new level as espn is pulling sports commentator from calling a football game all because his name is robert lee. there is he right there. have they gone too far? debate this next. ♪ i want to scream and shout ♪ and shout ♪ and let it out ♪ we say ♪

brian: let's talk about football and baseball. in the wake of charlottesville's protests, get, this espn now pulling one of its sports commentators off the university of virginia football game because his name is robert lee. get it. what happened last week in charlottesville? is this the p.c. move or is this really smart in here to debate it two former players author of liberalism or how to turn good men into wineries, wimps. owens and kevin michael faulkner also an nfl player and outstanding one at that first off, michael, your stance on espn's move. >> it's crazy. it's ridiculous. i mean, it's p.c. run amuck. it is absolutely crazy because it solves nothing. it does nothing. this man had nothing to do with it. obviously, he is asian. the name lee is his family name and has nothing to do with the south or general robert e. lee and what happened in his historical
4:26 am
namesake. brian: what an insult to the people of virginia that they can't control themselves of the asian play by play announcer. is he forced to do the youngstown state game. save weekly will have to do the play by play for this game. your reaction, burgess. >> first of all hello to my good friend. this is a good example of white elitist for some reason think they can atone for the sins of past generations by their god like functions a day. it is to me an insult. it actually demeans the excitement, or the growth of my parents' generation what they did. if they want to take the time to apologize. let's start off with things they can do today. let's apologize for the 1800 black babies that will be killed today. let's apologize 83% of black teen male no, sir longer working because of democratic policies. let's apologize for the 70% of black men who dessert
4:27 am
their families because of democratic welfare policies. there is a lot of things to apologize for if you want to. let's look at the democratic party and the liberals and socialists in this country that has actually taken the heart out of our community. that's where we need to start. forget the 150 years ago. let's stop trying to change our history. brian: michael, i know have you something you want to say to that but let's shift to preseason manner. cleveland browns 11 or 12 players, including some white players took a knee before the game in order to pray instead of standing with the national anthem with their hands over their heart. your action, michael. >> patriotism can express itself any way they want to. if they want to kneel, they kneel respectfully. if you want to pledge, pledge with your hand over your heart reverently. but here's the thing. have you got to stick with it: if you're going to protest. protest as an american which means you are going to stick around to fix it simply protesting does not solve the problem. we have to have people that are engaged in our
4:28 am
community, engaged in the civil discourse all the way through. which means they are going to be good citizens. brian: burgess, did you buy that. >> absolutely. i think michael hit it on the head. if you are going to protest see it through. what are you going to do when the cameras are not on you. do you go out and start businesses and hire black men that are not working. do you go out and minister to kids. tell the piers to man up and take care of the babies they are producing. this is where we need to have these young men to stand up and really understand they are the product of their education. great hearts, lousy, lousy progressive education. brian: i feel differently. real quick i wanted george foreman to weigh in. he couldn't be here live but here is what he taped. >> a lot of us died in war so they could have that privilege. i love the united states. i love the flag. there are a lot of people who haven't found that reason. they don't strive. they haven't been i brought up with people who are patriotic. brian: michael, i just think that no matter if you are upset, love, or disappointed in the country, i think you
4:29 am
can all agree to stand with your hand over your heart for the national anthem especially at work. >> especially at work. listen, the nfl as burgess knows, burgess played a lot longer certainly than i did. as burgess knows the nfl is a brand. and they have a brand image that they want to uphold. they have a fan base, et cetera. brian: they are hurting it. >> well, they are hurting it. here's the thing. in america, we have to allow people to express themselves. my only contention with these guys who are kneeling, they are kneeling respectfully, reverently, in prayer for america, but once they get up off of their knees and they finish their game, like burgess said, they have got to be engaged in the community. we need them. brian: gotcha. >> as civic leaders. not just protesters. brian: weigh in burgess, real quick. >> i agree. totally. and at the end of the day it's going to be the black community is going to have to change the trajectory of the black community. brian: right. >> let's recognize we have an ideology of marks schism and socialism that has been
4:30 am
against us for over 100 years. stand together and having these kind of conversations can make a difference. brian: when you take a knee when the national anthem is playing it's a bad signal to americans. it doesn't say anything except for you're putting yourself above the national anthem. >> right. it's. brian: it's a terrible message and terrible for the league and i feel bad for this commissioner because he can't win in this one. >> right. brian: thanks, guys. >> thank you. britain. brian: straight ahead president trump doubling down on new troops for afghanistan last night in phoenix. what would winning in afghanistan look like? retired marine corps bomb technician johnny joey jones who served there joins us to talk about it. and what do voters think about president trump's speech to the nation? todd piro is live in a kentucky diner to find out. ♪ and we're one big country nation ♪ that's right ♪

>> my original instinct was to pull out and historically i like following my instincts. but all my life i've heard that decisions are much different when you sit behind the desk in the oval office. in other words, when you're president of the united states. steve: there you have got the president a couple of nights ago over at fort meyer talking about the way forward in afghanistan. today he is going to be out at reno talking to the american legion national convention. we have joining us right now retired u.s. marine corps bomb tech admission staff sergeant johnny joey jones good morning to you. >> good morning. thanks for having me here today. brian: what's this victory look like in afghanistan. the president has a plan. what do you think. >> that's a question. what does victory look like. what is the mission?
4:35 am
what is the goal? i preached this as hard as i can i tell you unfortunately today, the men and women who are going to fight this war and get deployed it is still a mystery to them. i applaud president trump for redefining the tactics how we are going to do what we're going to do. the rules that we are going to play by or more importantly the fact that small unit leaders get to make decisions on the battlefield that save lives. but, tell me, is an 18-year-old in afghanistan putting a bomb in the ground because there is a foreign invader there the same as an 18-year-old who is willing to travel somewhere, get on the plane and fly it into a building in a foreign land? those are two different mind sets for two different purposes. the biggest place we went wrong in these last 16 years of war was starting to treat those the same. if we're in a village for one day a week, the taliban is going to thereby six days a week telling them why they should fight against us to save their own land. we are talking about these confederate statues. how many confederate soldiers were told if you don't fight they are going to come burn your house and do horrible things to your
4:36 am
family? well, that's what's happening in afghanistan. that's what happened in iraq. so, we need to understand the mission and we need to understand if we need a troop surge, how many ever it needs to be, what are we trying to accomplish. brian: what happened was it iraq or afghanistan? >> i went to both and i had less luck in afghanistan. i got injured in 2010 in afghanistan. i was walking in february of 2011, working on capitol hill in june of 2011. brian: if we had pulled out like we did in iraq in 2011. how would that make you feel? >> listen, i'm a product of a troop surge that i was sent with 30,000 marines and by the time i got there i was being told when i'm coming home. my entire deployment was that my entire deployment was hey, you are here with tens of thousands of marines to win this war and by the way you are coming home by june 2011. ainsley: the president said two nights ago said weaver not doing that anymore. we are not having a time line. >> absolutely. ainsley: do you support what he said two nights ago about afghanistan.
4:37 am
>> what he said was tactically. change what we are going to do to defeat the enemy? that makes sense. i like that. all those talking points. everything about dissemination of power down to the small unit leader. not broadcasting what we're doing. those things make sense. common sense and it's going to help the battlefield and war fighter. steve: sure. what about the fact that pakistan on monday night in virginia was talking about we have given them billions and billions and billions of dollars in aid yet, they are not helping us out. >> yeah. they have both sides of this ball for a long time. if you look at afghanistan and pakistan, there is an arbitrary line drawn down the middle of a mountain rage and now we have two countries, right? there is a certain amount of collusion, we will say, that we'll never be able -- there are thousands of passages in those mountains. we can't separate these two countries there is a pose tune region that predates islam in that area with its own culture. there is a connection there that we can't ignore. what we would have to do is force them to trade at face value. steve: they want money the choice is clear.
4:38 am
brian: you are not allowed to cross the border if you don't give us that money. and they try to do that before. lastly, can you tell the difference over there between the 20 terror groups that are there as opposed to the taliban that are there? >> taliban has more immediate goal, right? it's about possibly their sovereignty of that country as opposed to becoming a playground. much like iraq did for pretty much anyone in the world who wants to pick a bone and kill some americans. so in afghanistan, even with the taliban, the taliban is fractured. there is a pro-pakistan and anti-pakistan taliban. so, you know, we had the unilateral peace talks last year. didn't really get very far. the idea is that we would sit in the corner and let the taliban come to the table. that didn't work out because we didn't have a partner in pakistan to make it happen. oh, by the way, afghanistan -- it's a regional hub. it's a place everywhere from china to russia to pakistan sees as a place. brian: india. >> india, absolutely, sees as a place as long as it's in turmoil they can align
4:39 am
with their enemy or they are a possible play for them to take control. so, all of these, you know, multilayered things that are happening there and then are the afghan people going to be able to have sovereignty? that's the other question. one thing i will say. the commitment to we're no longer nation building. well, for one, we have never built a nation in iraq or afghanistan in 16 years. steve: right. >> honestly, what is victory? victory is for afghanistan to not be a place where our enemies can learn, train, and recruit. ainsley: yeah. >> how can that not be a place if it doesn't gain sovereignty. so i don't see how you can separate the two. and so that's the biggest challenge in front of us. ainsley: we look to you guys. thank you so much for your sacrifices and your service. we are so honored and so grateful. we get to do this great job every morning and feel safe and eat lunch at a cafe because of you. thank you for everything you are doing. >> thank you. truly honor. i had one bad dad day. the rest of them have been pretty good. ainsley: let's hand it over to jillian who has

news or crooked media. we should point out what he was talking about what he said initially in the press conference. he did not mention the part where he said people on many sides were to blame. he did not mention that, but he did try his best to explain what he has been thinking. brian: but he didn't back down. he didn't say he did anything wrong. he didn't say i wish everybody was clearer, because he had more of that tone on monday. last night i thought he was going to say, listen, on tuesday's press conference, i don't think i explained myself as accurately as i could. and instead, he read the transcript of what he did say and what he didn't say. ainsley: after charlottesville, he said i had three press conferences to talk about it, and he held up a piece of paper and said let me read you what i said and let me read you how the mainstream media portrayed what i said. so he had proof of what he said. and then he told the crowd. see the cameras that are behind you? and the whole crowd turned around. and he said many of the cameras are mainstream media. and that's when he said those
5:06 am
red lights are going off because they don't want to tell the story accurately and the whole crowd turned to those cameramen and booed. brian: he was almost fighting against his advisers when he said i'm not going to mention john mccain by name, or jeff flake, but he knows who the republican sitting senators are, and he knows that we're not on the same page with them and aren't on many things. even though jeff flake voted with him when it comes to repeal and replace obamacare. john mccain didn't. here's the president last night kind of holding back. >> obamacare is a disaster and think. we were just one vote away from victory after seven years of everybody proclaiming repeel and replace. one vote away. one vote away. we were one vote away. think of it.
5:07 am
seven years. the republicans. again, you have great senators. but we one vote away from repeal. and noticeable wants me to talk about your other senator who's weak on borders, weak on crime, so i won't talk about him. nobody wants me to talk about him. nobody knows who the hell he is. and now -- see? i haven't mentioned any names. so now everybody's happy. steve: even though he didn't mention the names, he knew exactly who he was talking about. john mccain and jeff flake who clearly is -- look, john mccain voted "no" and torpedoed obamacare. then you have jeff flake who has come out with a book -- keep in mind, he's a republican senator, and he has written a book highly critical of the republican president of the united states. you just don't normally do that. brian: but i will say this. jeff flake is going to be on radio in a couple of hours, and i do say this.
5:08 am
they agree on much more than they disagree with. he does not like the populism he ran on. he does not want to build a border wall. he doesn't think that will help. ainsley: well, neither one of them were in atten attendance in their own state last night and he said quote i will never stop -- and that's interesting because remember at one point he said i'm going to move on? he said, no, we're going to get it done. call your two senators. brian: it would be r it would be very interesting to see if they get over the anger they have with mitch mcconnell. my sense it will be like the 1978 yankees. they'll brawl in the clubhouse but win on the field. they'll never like each other but they'll learn to work for each other because they have nowhere else to go. steve: well, i think you're right the president hopes they win on the field because they never lost under the leadership of mitch mcconnell. they just need one more person. somebody who's going to challenge in the primary jeff
5:09 am
flake in the great state of arizona is the treasurer. he's going to join us. we're going to talk to him about the festivities in about five minutes. brian: espn has the contract for the university of virginia football but they have a problem. the play-by-play guy. ainsley: that guy. robert e lee. they're saying he shouldn't be the announcer that he's assigned to. steve: but this guy's not robert e lee. unless the e stands for espn. it's just crazy. there are so many people on the twitter verse who have blown up on espn. you have got to be kidding. all people have to do is do the math. are we really that sensitive? but espn put out a statement, and they made it very clear they were just trying to err on the side of caution. ainsley: we collectively made the decision with robert to switch games as the tragic
5:10 am
events in charlottesville were unfolding simply because of the coincidence in his name. in that moment, it felt right to all the parties. it's a shame that that's even a topic of conversation, and he regret who calls play-by-play for a football game becomes an issue. brian: david weekly will call the play-by-play and robert e lee will not. he's doing the ohio name. he has a big roster to memorize. he thought he was doing a different game. ainsley: both parties approached him and said do you mind doing this? steve: we asked you what you thought. joe e-mailed us. he said they've clearly shown that they don't value their employees as an organization. should espn has now made itself part of the problem in this country.
5:11 am
steve: so what do you think? you can e-mail us or tweet us or facebook us. ainsley: robert is a very common name. lee is a very common name. brian: somewhere it has to be reprogrammed. ainsley: right. and also jillian e lee. steve: close enough. brian: general lee's dad was bobby lee. he was a quarterback in the nfl. would he be allowed to play this week? >> i don't know but let's get you caught up. we begin with a fox news alert. brand-new images of navy divers frantically searching for missing sailors. ten americans vanished when the uss john mccain slammed into a tanker in the south china sea. several but not all bodies have been recovered. the navy dismissing the commander in the wake of the tragedy.

even beyond the obama administration is now coming home and some admirals promotion is now being measured in the loss of lives of sailors at sea. >> this is the fleet's second deadly incident in less than three months. brand-new video just in of defense secretary james mattis meeting with leaders in turkey. concerns in the region including isis. secretary mattis also meeting with erdogan. comes as we learn thousands of troops could be employed to afghanistan in days. the move part of president trump's plan to rad cade terror in the country. take a look. brand-new photos showing the $3.4 million renovations at 1,600 pen. the oval office has new wallpaper. the result room has brand-new carpeting. crews also replacing the heating and hvac system in addition to upgrading it infrastructure. the first family spent time in
5:13 am
new jersey as the work took place. looking pretty clean, huh? steve: very nice for the new occupants of six months. brian: thanks, jillian. meanwhile, 12 minutes after the hour. he was charged with several felonies but debbie wasserman schultz still didn't fire her it guy. why not? >> i think it's important to point out what he has been arrested and charged with is un- -- is unrelated to his employment. brian: oh, really? and the excuses don't end there. we'll explain. ainsley: and then president trump taking a shot at jeff blake after last night's rally. he road with the president's rally on air force one. what does that mean? he's going to join us live. next ugh. heartburn. sorry ma'am. no burning here. try alka-seltzer heartburn relief gummies. they don't taste chalky and work fast.

5:18 am
at yesterday's rally. joins us right now from phoenix. good morning to you. >> good morning, steve. thank you for having me. steve: someone suggested that you should challenge jeff flake when he runs for reelection. you are interested, though, even though you haven't decided whether or not you're interested in senate, in helping president trump; right? >> absolutely. you know, i've been there from the very, very beginning with the president. i've ridden in with him many times when he comes to arizona, as well as other states. i was there at the very, very first rally back in july of 2015, and that was the first time i think everyone saw there was magic in the air, and i've never doubted since that time that he was going to win. and we knew right back then that he was going to win. steve: you fly in on air force one, would you be comfortable sharing any of the conversation with the president? >> well, i don't want to say the specifics of what we talked about, but i want to say first, what an amazing opportunity to ride on air force one.
5:19 am
obviously, that's a much better way to travel than the commercial airlines. steve: no kidding. >> and more leg room. i'm 6'5". there's more leg room. steve: air force one. that's why you should be president, somebody should say. because you get more leg room on air force one. well, the president did not mention mr. flake and mccain by name. clearly, he was taking shots at him because they have not been helpful to him, even though they're republican. >> well, you know, a lot of people all over the country in the senate have -- on the republican side have raised money for seven years saying they're going to repeal obamacare, and i think a lot of people are very disappointed that obamacare is not gone. obviously, the president has done everything he can to make that happen, and it's time for the senate to put the bill on his desk and fix what has really broken our small business sector, getting rid of obamacare will help bring more jobs, and that's the important thing. steve: jeff, what do you think is the president's criticism where he blamed the media for the backlash after charlottesville? >> oh, i think he's right on
5:20 am
the money. he came out very, very strongly and condemned all forms of racism the day that it came out. and then the media would never give him credit for that. so, you know, i think it's sad what they put him through with these things. he did the right thing and said, oh, he wasn't specific enough. never mind the double standard that obama was never specific, and they never said that about him. but they said, oh, president trump wasn't specific, so then two days later, he comes out with another statement that's very specific, and they act like that's the first statement. so, you know, the media is treating president trump very unfairly. but the one thing he has that i think drives the media crazy is he has the ability to go directly to america more so than any president in history. he can get his message across, and that's why he's supported so strongly, especially here in arizona. steve: he's a little bit it with twitter and also the big rallies. jeff, thank you very much for joining us live today. >> great. thanks for having me on. steve: okay. you bet. all right. coming up on this

>> former director of national intelligence reacting to president trump's speech last night with some harsh words. listen. >> you questioning his fitness? >> yes, i do. i really question his ability to -- fitness to be in this office, and i also am beginning to wonder about his motivation for maybe he is looking for a way out.
5:25 am
>> why does he talk like he woke up in the million dollars of the night? and what a insult to this president. here to react fellow from the london policy research. colonel lieutenant shafer. colonel, to me, that is so over the line, i can't even put it into words. your thoughts? >> apparently jim clapper is a ph.d. in analyzing people remotely. i'll be blunt about it. jim clapper is an idiot. i have briefed that man a couple of times. and when i briefed him on operations, you see this vacant look. he has become a political bit. he just parrots what he's told and in this case, i think he's starting to roll out the new antitrump line that he's not fit to serve. oh, my goodness i have concerns. this is what the left has become all about. it's not about facts, it's about, oh, i think this may be this. i feel this way about it.
5:26 am
and clapper is a poster child for that methodology, and this is what they're telegraphing. they're putting him out there to see how well this resonates with the cnn audience. brian: because he's the national intelligence director for eight years. if he says that, it must be true. >> that's right. brian: and, by the way, he knows a lot of secrets and knows a lot about that transition of what president trump and president obama talked about. and if you're wondering how a lot of these things are getting in the papers, could one conclude perhaps somebody who thinks the president's unstable that wants to quit the job literally, key possibly be the source there? you're an intelligence officer. >> yeah. no, look, i know for a fact and, and i've turned the name over his deputies is one of the leakers. that information was turned over to the appropriate authorities and, yes, he directed it for my information. we'll see what happens regarding the investigation. but that was action. with that said, he personally, brian, has lied twice under oath to the american people. so how does anybody consider this man credible at this point in time? and, yes, he was part of the
5:27 am
effort with ben rhodes, john brennon and the others to go about the could to be unmask people as well as to say things like this to undermine the smooth transition. so, again, i don't understand how anybody gives jim clapper any credibility at this point in time. brian: if they were saying this about president clinton or president obama, what do you think the backlash would be that he somehow unhinged and wants to quit the job? i've never heard that in my life. a president looking for a way out like mike tyson? >> he would be completely isolated. i suspect he would be getting death threats, i suspect that everybody on the left would be piling on. he would have people protesting in his driveway wherever he lives. so, brian, this is a complete double standard here and, again, i see this as kind of a trial balloon to see how well this narrative plays because, look, russia didn't work, i don't think this whole trump
5:28 am
premise is working, and i think this is their next tact. brian: charlottesville, london's afghanistan speech. you were in afghanistan before. we still haven't taken them out. what i'm wondering is in this plan, what's missing to make colonel shafer to believe, if anything, that would be successful? >> well, two things, brian. i think first, we have to consider the nuclear issues in pakistan. i think as you mentioned, operation dark heart, my book was a plan. so i like the fact that president trump said back on the offensive. let's go back and do this. let's quit focusing on trying to create a nation, a nation state that's a jefferson democracy. but we now have to consider is the issues of the region. he played the india card and, brian, he didn't only play the india card against pakistan, which is their primary competitor, he played against china. india is becoming a competitor
5:29 am
against china. so the way he laid this out, focusing this on our interest, look, we may be blunt. never leave afghanistan, never left germany, never left japan, never left korea. we don't tell them how to live their lives. i like the message. i think we need to be a little bit more precise. brian: if they did like a few years ago, we should say "yes" and not care what pakistan wants. especially since they haven't released that doctor. he's still in jail, which is outrageous. >> and we pay them 7 billion a year, brian to pakistan. getting nothing out of it. i think it should change. brian: coming up next over the next 30 minutes, he was charged with several felonies but debbie wasserman schultz still did not fire her it guy. why not, debbie? >> i think it's important to point out what he has been arrested and charged with is un- -- is unrelated to his employment. brian: we'll go over what he was actually arrested and

florida handle it? dan, what do you think of espn saying the folks can't handle it? >> okay. let me just lay this out there. when i saw this on the news last night on my life workers' compensation i swear i thought this story was fake. i said this is the onion. this is the sarcastic website, and they're playing us all for fools. they want us as conservatives to retweet this and make idiots out of this later. the fact that this is true says to me one thing. we have finally reached peak stupid on the left. i cannot believe this is a real story where identity politics has reached such a crescendo of stupidity where asian sideline reporters are removed from broadcast because they're afraid of offending some liberal college snowflakes on a campus? guys, this is literally the definition of insanity. we have reached such irrationality. and one last thing of this. why are we paying attention to these people anymore? they are clearly irrational.
5:35 am
america just needs to ignore these people. steve: who are you talking about? espn? the left? >> yes. i'm talking about the left because espn's statement was very telling on this. their statement is they're unsure why this is a controversy, but they did it to kind of avoid any controversy. it's a controversy because you were afraid the left would be offended. why do you care? this is completely irrational. ainsley: what about the left that they're going to spin this story or make it worse? >> you know what it says about the left? it says they're so desperate to convince america that their fringed positions; right? their love affairs with wars on women, wars on police officers, transgender bathroom usage, the tearing down of adequate statues, you know, spray painting lincoln statues with kkk and stuff like this. doing all of this, that this is a position widely held by
5:36 am
americans. and why that's -- you know, why they've been able to do that is because you have people like espn executives who feed into this nonsense. guys, this is a fringed position held by a few wackos. most americans know this is nuts. brian: right and robert e lee is in youngston, ohio. we can't stop him or get him back. good luck this weekend. meanwhile, let's talk about you, dan, and your thoughts about as an african-american. you know that the vote -- the city council voted to put a shroud over the two statues and in north carolina there's protests about the statues on those campuses. where are we heading with this? >> well, we're headed where we've always been headed with the left. you know, guys, they have nothing. they're married to this idea that they have to destroy america as we know it right now. they have to get people obsessed with the idea that our discard history -- by the way, a discard history of every country with slavery or jim crow granted epic human
5:37 am
tragedies. but that our discard history is the marker of who we are. not that we've overcome these things and given people unprecedented levels of prosperity. so we have to distract people and keep them constantly outraged in this 24/7 anger campaign. it's the only way to motivate liberal voters. brian: i understand the point of view, and i was talking to du douglas, a historian, and the last thing anybody wants to do is mess with history. but if you wake up and robert e lee is there, let's debate this. should web saluting other americans? this should be a rational conversation. not something done in the middle of the night. and now they're taking out christopher columbus who was given to new york by the italian americans in 1890 who, by the way, the italians are mobilized. they haven't been mobilized in the '30s. they're mobilized now to protect christopher columbus in uptown new york city.

5:45 am
fighting for each and every day. it's so important. ainsley: why don't people like that? the independents and democrats, that sounds like a normal message. >> it sounded like a campaign rally, frankly. and what people said while republicans his base definitely loved it, a minus, you could see the independents and democrats gave it a low mark because they say this isn't about you right now. america is wounded. we are hurting. we are divided, and we want to see us coming together. don't make this about you. don't make this about attacking, explaining, defending. make this about what you're going to do for the american people to bring us back together. brian: you got the job, in other words. >> exactly. brian: something else he talked about was america coming together, and he did it by saying we all have the same goals, we all have the same aspirations. trump: americans share one flag, one home, and one glorious destiny.
5:46 am
we love according to the same law, raise our children by the same values, and we are all made made by the same almighty god. ainsley: i love that. >> you can see that this is a beautiful, poignant message. republicans gave it a a, independents and democrats gave it a c. now, democrats often give trump everything he says an f, so that was a good message for the democrats. i think what was most interesting, though, is independents are softening on their support to trump. they're falling more in line with democrats, and they're quite frankly questioning right now what's going to get done, people are concerned, and they want to see him lead more. so really tough night. steve: well, something the president did is let the press have it. beat the press i think was the headline in the new york times. here he is in part where he has been blaming the media for the backlash after virginia. watch this. trump: it's time to expose the
5:47 am
crooked media deceptions and to challenge the media for their role in fermenting divisions and, yes, by the way, they are trying to take away our history and our heritage. you see that. >> so you can see the republicans love this. they gave it an a. independents and democrats gave it a d. and i think what's most important there is look at the independent line and see they have fallen their support for the president right now and what they said is they're tired of the blame game. we get that the mainstream media is not being kind to the president, but that's not what we want to focus on right now. focus on bringing us back together, unifying this nation, and getting things done. we want to see tax reform, we want to see health care, we want to hear about what you're going to do, not putting down the media and not putting down the establishment anymore. just get something done. steve: would it be safe to say with the three sound bytes that you played with the dials, it looked like his core
5:48 am
