3:02 am
steve: this song is about us. brian: nothing but a good time? steve: that's exactly right. ainsley: good morning. steve: wednesday telecast. special day. brian: happy birthday time for ainsley. big day for you. ainsley: we don't celebrate it anymore. it's not a big year. steve: really? ainsley: thank you. that's so nice. steve: we are glad you were born. thank you for joining us on ainsley's birthday. we have a big day to talk about the news and the big news was yesterday at this time we were talking about which personality of donald trump would show up. a diplomatic one or a blunt president. as it turns out yesterday in the 10:00 hour we got the blunt guy. brian: you talk about foreign policy. you talk about being direct. you talk about underlining the big problem and things that got him elected. it was all in that one speech with special guest the world. ainsley: i like this speech. thought it was really tough out of the gate.
3:03 am
buy egregious human rights. sit on the u.n. human rights counsel. steve: the speech was 50 minutes in length. we have distilled highlights in 1 minute 50 second montage. please take a look. >> the iranian government masks a corrupt dictatorship behind the false guise of a democracy. it's oil process go to fund hezbollah and other terrorists that kill innocent muslims and attack their peaceful arab and israeli neighbors. it is time for the entire world to join us in demanding that iran's government end its pursuit of death and destruction. it is time for the regime to free all americans and citizens of other nations that they have unjustly detained. no one has shown more contempt for other nations and for the well-being of their own people than the
3:04 am
depraved regime in north korea. the united states has great strength and patience. but if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy north korea. rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself. and for his regime. brian: that is the number one problem in the world today. and it not only is america's problem. it should be their good friend, russia and china's problem. and the president did an interesting tact. he called out the lunatic in north korea by using a very interesting nickname but also didn't really call out and but the additional pressure on china and russia. he prefers to do that behind closed doors. ainsley: rocket man obviously the elton john song. i don't know why anyoned in the mainstream media is complaining like calling a lunatic a nickname.
3:05 am
went through different examples in his speech of why this guy is so bad. he talked about how he gassed to death his own stepbrother, half-brother in an international airport. he talked about stealing a little girl off the beach so that she could come -- cingd her from her family and took her to north korea so that she could help spy on her country. and then he gave another example. he gave obviously the nuclear weapons, how he wants to destroy other countries. brian: and what he did to otto warmbier. ainsley: exactly. that was the one one i couldn't think of. brian: he actually died. steve: charm to home audience not used to that. that's why rocket man's personal ambassador got up and walked out before he actually started speaking. however, on the world stage, at least one world leader said this was the best speech he had heard by a world leader at that forum in 30 years. we're talking about the guy who is running israel. benjamin netanyahu. listen to this.
3:06 am
>> i stood here last year on this podium and i spoke about this profound change in israel's standing around the world. and just look at what has happened since. in one year. hundreds of presidents, prime ministers, foreign ministers, and other leaders havehave visited israel. many for the first time. in may president trump became the first american president to include israel in his first visit abroad. president trump stood at the western wall at the foot of the temple mount where the jewish people or rather the jewish people's temple stood for nearly 1,000 years and when the president touched those ancient stones, he touched our hearts forever. brian: they had a friendship before he became president of the united states. and it's even gotten
3:07 am
stronger now because they both lived up to their word to watch each other's back. we are going to have a military base in israel. so i'm fascinated by that and not surprised by benjamin netanyahu supporting the president. but was i surprised that mitt romney tweeted out president trump gave a very strong and needed challenge to the united nations. that paul ryan went out of his way to say a great message from the president of the united states at the u.n. leadership and, of course, peter king also firmly in his background. i thought it was very direct. it was very trumpian. it actually spoke to the president when he ran on his america first but not america only. hey, allies we have your back. hey, enemies, we're coming after you. steve: you know what, brian? you just listed three republicans that thought it was great. on the other side, the opposition party, mainstream media, they didn't like it. watch. >> if you read the president's words he said the conditions to totally destroy north korea would be a force to defend ourselves and our allies.
3:08 am
you could read that to even open up a justification for preventative war against north korea. >> that is potential justification but the words "totally destroying a nation of 25 million people" that borders on the threat of committing a war crime. >> why does he have to be so provocative all the time? we are talking about annihilating millions of people. >> yeah. >> this is not baby stuff. this is a guy who is leading the atuition is now talking about nuclear war. i can't take it. >> this wasn't a speech. this was a sermon. he wasn't a president. he was a preacher up there giving his dark world view about threats and conflicts. ainsley: it's not baby stuff, joy behar. we are talking about north korea. this is the leader of north korea who want to wipe you out. wants to wipe out our country. it's preparing to do that. we are giving them money. other countries sitting in that room are giving him money to fund that it's not baby stuff. the president, nikki haley
3:09 am
said we don't want to do that. if we have to do that, we will do that. if we have to go to that extreme. we have warned him and warned him and warned him. if not, it's going to be too late. brian: president obama also used the same term that he would annihilate north korea in the past. he just did it in a way that joy behar found more acceptable. steve: one of the things that joy behar left out while she said president obama never talked about wiping out north korea it was on president obama's watch that north korea for eight years was able to develop a nuclear war head and missile that could reach the united states territory. ainsley: he also said in a speech that, he said we're putting america first. he said i encourage you to put all your own countries first. i represent america. we are paying 22% of this budget. if we are going to do that then you need to listen to us. we will do that for the greater good. if not, and you are not on board with us, we are not going to put that much money into the u.n. anymore. brian: seems like a lot of
3:10 am
people were happier when president obama was running down america. last speech some of the highlights too much telling the world patchwork of laws in america set out to make it hard for americans to vote. ridiculing us there. also considered founding idea america has made our share of mistakes. maybe joy behar would have been happier if we just sat there, if president trump said all the problems he had with america instead of looking at america as one of the good things in this world and not the ugly part holding back this world. steve: meanwhile, hillary clinton was on television yesterday, she apparently watched the president's speech from the united nations and she had these observations. she didn't like it. last night. this is what she would have done if she were president. >> i thought it was very dark, dangerous, not the kind of message that the leader of the greatest nation in the world should be delivering. what i had hopes the president would have said was something along the lines of, you know, we view
3:11 am
this as dangerous to our allies, to the region, and even to our country. we call on all nations to work with us to try to end the threat posed by kim jong un. and not call him rocket man, the old elton john song. but to say, clearly, we will not tolerate any attacks on our friends or ourselves. brian: how is that philosophy worked when you were secretary of state, when your husband was president of the united states? nothing worked. the deal that your husband thought he had, it was supposed to be a lay up for president bush ended up being totally farce. her policy toward north korea allowed to stay on the track to get what many people think of 20 or 30 weapons. she sits there arrogantly and stephen colbert sits there and listens to her as if she is the oracle of wisdom. brian. ainsley: amazing so many
3:12 am
americans care more about the folks in north korea and this leader in north korea and calling him nicknames than they care about the american people. steve: i will say one thing, do i believe the president of the united states now has the attention of rocket man. brian: right, absolutely. steve: he has rocket man's attention. brian: let's get jillian's attention. she has breaking news. jillian: let's begin with this. a fox news alert. evacuate or die. that's the warning from authorities, people in puerto rico as hurricane maria closes in. the powerful category 4 storm packed with 155 mile-per-hour winds expected to make landfall on the island in just a few hours. it's already claimed at least one life after roaring through the island of gwatney loop pa. meteorologist janice dean will give us a live update coming up in just a half hour on maria's path. stay tuned for that also breaking right now, at least 217 people are dead. a desperate search for survivors underway following a massive earthquake in mexico. the tremor is sending

3:17 am
brian: 17 minutes after the hour. president trump putting north korea on notice before first major speech. steve: so what happens next. we have retired green beret commander and advisor to the vice president mike cheney lieutenant colonel michael waltz. >> good morning.
3:18 am
steve: headline is that the president made it very clear if we have to we will totally destroy north korea. you hear that, rocket man? but the message wasn't necessarily to rocket man, was it? >> well, it certainly was to north korea but it more so was to china. a lot of folks are focused on the north korea calculus and we need to make them understanding in no uncertain terms if you get this capability it will mean the end of your regime. because that's what he cares about the most. china is who can really turn this off tomorrow. they can choke north korea off economically tomorrow if they wanted to. but, they're worried about all kinds of other things and we need that calculus to change. brian: for those who say there was no subtle at this in that speech they are wrong. wouldn't go directly to china. they spoke to china the day before that and i'm sure this came up. >> absolutely. it's coming up every time. we're not going to call them out publicly like that. because we have all types of issues with china, whether it's south china sea. whether it's trade. whether it's relationship with japan.
3:19 am
but, china needs to understand that their calculus has to change. right now they are worried about a collapsed regime. they are worried about a unified north korea under seoul that's friendly to the west. and if at this point that calculus outweighs what's going to happen on the peninsula, if north korea gets a nuclear weapon, then china is not going to change. but if they understanding that we mean it this time that we will -- that we cannot cross that red line, then they may shift. ainsley: the guy who was there to represent north korea, he left the room. >> yeah. ainsley: what's the reaction of kim jong un this morning? will he retaliate -- dianne feinstein wasn't happy with the president for saying this because she is worried about retaliation and how kim jong un will act. >> we cannot keep doing more and more and more of the same. in past administrations i worked under the bush administration, the goal was to get back to talks. we have seen now from the 19990s and 2,000 that kim jong un and his father used
3:20 am
talks to buy more capability let's not be mistaken here. as time goes on they will get more advanced icbms and develop the capability for reentry. disburse them so they are harder to get to. time is not on our side. brian: to see hillary clinton sit there and con dessendingly talk about this speech. what's your thoughts? >> i can't believe we are in this situation at this point. we move to a deal in the 1990s, the deal didn't work and now we have to support this president as he says we cannot be held to blackmail by the north korean regime. ainsley: you will be talking about this a lot. you will be on outnumbered at noon. steve: march that's program at 7:00. >> yes. steve: violent protest protest e rocked st. louis missouri for several days why is the

brian: all right. we are back with a fox news alert. and now you are looking at -- looking live in san juan, puerto rico. where hurricane maria is making landfall right now. ainsley: officials say the monster category 4 storm could be the strongest storm to hit the island in nearly a century. steve: that's right. maria already claiming at least one life after roaring
3:35 am
through the island of graduate loop. janice dean is tracking the storm wind gusts 190 miles per hour. janice: yeah, potentially going to devastate unfortunately puerto rico. it is making landfall right now on the southeast coast of puerto rico. it's going to continue to move across this country for the next 6 to 8 hours with potentially hurricane force winds for all of that duration of time. you can see the last 12 hours if the storm makes landfall we lose radar. so power is out. we're not going to expect to see a lot of radar coming out of puerto rico over the next, you know, 6 to 12 hours. forecast wind gusts 147 miles per hour at san juan. millions of people live here. over 3 million people live in puerto rico. this could potentially be catastrophic for them. they haven't had a category 4 landfall since the 1930s. and this potentially with 9 to 11-foot storm surge. 12 to 24 inches of rainfall. the threat for tornadoes as well is going to be, you know, a big, big issue for
3:36 am
them. and i really think that we're going to see, unfortunately, catastrophic impacts from this storm. the forecast rainfall when you have potentially 24 inches of rainfall is going to completely inundate this area. the winds are going to be ongoing. category 4 strength around the core of the center of this storm. but hurricane force winds will last the duration of 6 to 8 hours across this country. so that is going to be, you know, devastating, unfortunately. then we watch the potential impact for turks and caicos, the bahamas, and even the east coast needs to monitor this. this may come very close to the carolinas in the plant next week. here are the tropical models as we go further out in time. cone of uncertainty gets wider. i wants to show you the gfs and european model monday, tuesday, wednesday, that's a little close to the u.s. so we'll, of course, monitor maria. but right now devastating impacts for puerto rico. possibly, you know, one of the worst hurricanes they have ever seen in their history. back to you. steve: could be headed
3:37 am
towards the carolinas and canadian maritimes. ainsley: category 4. you said last week i had forgotten about sandy was a cat 1 with all the devastation. janice: right. absolutely. steve: janice, thank you very much. keep an eye on that. ainsley: meanwhile, president trump on the world stage addressing the u.n. general assembly with tough talk for rogue regimes all around the world. brian: how did that message resonate with the american voters? steve: lee carter is president and partner with maslansky and partners. you put the president to the dial test. you had a bunch of people watch the soun yesterday. red independen independent blue democrats. watch the president and his friend rocket man. >> the united states has great strength and patience. if it is forced to defend itself or its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy north korea.
3:38 am
rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime. steve: well. >> so you can see republicans and independents gave this an a. democrats a d minus. you could really see the dials for the democrats fall to the bottom when the president called kim jong un rocket man. while the republicans and independents really liked it. i think it's a fascinating divide. a lot of the democrats said i think this is a little scary he is going this way. republicans and independents like look, i like the strong talk. brian: independents key to republicans that's what sticks out with me. iranian deal not gelgted a lot of play what secretary of state rex tillerson said we have a problem if there is expiration on it. it wasn't a gray area. it was black and white. >> right. brian: he had a huge problem with the deal that president obama cut. >> the iran deal was one of the worst and most one-sided transactions. the united states has ever entered into. frankly, that deal is an
3:39 am
embarrassment to the united states and i don't think you've heard the last of it. believe me. it is time for the entire world to join us in demanding that iran's government ends its pursuit of death and destruction. it is time for the regime to free all americans and citizens of other nations that they have unjustly detained. >> you can see the republicans gave this an a plus. independents a minus and democrats came up at the end and gave it a d overall. what i thought was fascinating the word associated with the republicans and independents on this speech was strength. with democrats was dangerous. really different reaction there. brian: major democrats voted against that deal. senator schumer, senator cardin, senator menendez hated it. >> good point. ainsley: we mind us the
3:40 am
world leaders. watch the dial. >> the united states is one out of 193 countries in the united nations. and, yet, we pay 22% of the entire budget and more. in fact, we pay far more than anybody realizes. the united states bears an unfair cost burden. but, to be fair, if it could actually accomplish all of its stated goals, especially the goal of peace, this investment would easily be well worth it. >> i thought this was really interesting. you could see republicans and independents gave this an a. democrats gave this a c minus. when the president was talking about theory, in principle, how we want to contribute and participate in the u.n., that it is an investment, much more positive reaction from the democrats. much more afraid when he started getting into the specifics of north korea and iran and venezuela.
3:41 am
steve: so it's doctoring. you were here a couple weeks ago and you thought his core audience was a little squishy, they are back and so are the independents. >> yeah. they said that this speech was one of the best speeches they have heard from the president since the state of the union address. this is really really strong for those independents. really strong for republicans. and there were moments the democrats came around but they are a little bit afraid of what is he going to do with foreign policy on those countries like iran, venezuela and north korea. brian: thanks so much lee carter. >> great to be here. thank you. brian: 19 minutes before the top of the hour. jillian mele following other stories while we were focused across town. jillian: let's begin with this. the mayor of st. louis ripping cops and blaming police intimidation for cans lelcanceling town hall meetings. city safe from violent protesters who have been storming the streets for days. >> intimidation is not, is not conduct that lives up to the standard of behavior
3:42 am
expected by the police officers or employees. i want to assure all citizens that complaints that have been made are being reviewed by the police department's internal affairs division. jillian: rioters setting the american flag on fire. attacking cops and damaging property after a former officer's acquittal on murder charges. city leaders promising to meet with protesters privately to hear their demands. a family now homeless after a massive 25-foot wide sinkhole swallowed up part of their home. take a look at your screen right now. it was all caught on camera. wow. the hole 15 feet deep opening in apopka, florida near orlando. the family evacuating just in time before the house collapsed. authorities believe heavy rain from hurricane irma caused it protests in
3:43 am
st. louis inspiring kids to take a knee for the anthem. jillian: illinois football coach said his players asked about the protest so he told them about collin kaepernick. >> one of the kids asked, can we do that? those were his words, and i said as long as we know why we're doing it i don't have a problem with kneeling. i felt like it was a good teaching moment for me. jillian: the coach said the parents were all on board. we want to know what you think. send us an email at friends@foxnews.com. i'm sure we are going to be getting a lot of differing opinions on that subject. steve: thank you very much, jill i can't believe. apparently the wife of the coach did post the information on facebook and got some detractors and some backlash but keep in mind, it's a private club. they can do what they want. if all the parents are on board. ainsley: i'm sure these 8-year-olds they hear the story can we do that too?

that sounds cool. they don't know the background of the national anthem at that point. but for the parents to be on board, wow. brian: never too young to disrespect the country. meanwhile, it's a hot new trend. students rioting on college campuses to shut down speakers they don't agree with now we know why. with now we know why. because they don't see anything wrong with it really? woohoo! you'll ask, what pain? new advil liqui-gels minis. what's the story behind green mountain coffee and fair trade? let's take a flight to colombia. this is boris calvo. boris grows mind-blowing coffee. and because we pay him a fair price, he improves his farm and invest in his community to make even better coffee. all for a smoother tasting cup. green mountain coffee.

4:19 am
trump was getting at and what he has been saying all along is imposing a travel ban in order to be able to slow down the terrorism or excuse me to slow down the intelligence process in order to be able to put together a vetting system, that's all he has been trying to go for. and i think it's the only way to start physically spotting these threats. brian: aaron cohen i told you five years ago this threat was going to be there. but very few people in europe would have agreed. they would have said you are anti-muslim or don't like people from the middle east or don't like immigrants. now after the myriad of attacks in france, in brussels, and spain and what britain has experienced over the last year, where i think we are up to five attacks, do you think the european people are beginning to understand that it's not a phobia, it's a reality? >> i do. i think that's well put. i have traveled on different security projects. europeans are pretty fed up
4:20 am
with the absorption policies right now. there is thousands if not almost a million people running around different parts of europe who are fundamentally against the western values that europe stands for and we're just as wide open. i couldn't agree with you more. absorption needs to be looked at as a counter terror measure. otherwise, at the end we are going to see more than a half a dozen attacks like we just saw in london. steve: not all refugees are terrorists, clearly. if you had 30 seconds to give the president of the united states advice because this was your business. what would it be? >> if i was advising president trump, the first thing i would do is put together a task force designed to physically be able to go through and to figure out start documenting all of the immigrants essentially start that travel ban again for a select period of time. refreeze the immigration. start looking at the cell phones and computers of potential immigrants coming into this country.

♪ brian: all right. right now to a fox news alert. you are seeing it. a roof ripped a home as hurricane maria just hit landfall about an hour and 12 minutes ago. ainsley: monster category 4 storm could be the strongest hurricane to hit the island in nearly a century. steve. steve: harrigan is live in withisan juan, puerto rico where the storm is barreling down right now. tell us where you are in respect to greater san juan, puerto rico. >> we're in san juan, not far from the airport in a concrete park parking garage. we herd a lot about destructive winds and these winds could be deadly. it's clear that they are right now. we are seeing large concrete hotels in the capital simply being torn apart minute by minute. we have seen large pieces of the sidewalls come out. we have seen balconies go flying. trees snapped in half.
4:34 am
they warned the winds here could be 120 to 160 miles per hour over the next couple of hours. and their worst fear is really coming true so far that the eastern part, the heavily populated part of this island, a u.s. territory of 3.5 million people is getting a direct hit from this storm. there are real concerns from the governor that this storm could be life threatening. what you are looking at now are some of the main, most solid buildings in the capital. and those buildings are being torn apart by the winds. that's not to mention the storm surge that's coming next. and you know if you think about people in simple structures and sink roof structures all across this island you can only imagine how they are fairing. this hasn't happened in puerto rico in 100 years. it's happening this morning here potentially catastrophic storm as we see bits and pieces of large buildings just fly past us in the air. back to you guys. steve: just watch out for the flying stuff that, i
4:35 am
know, is your biggest worry right now. ainsley: be careful out there, steve. brian: steve has gone from hurricane to hurricane from texas to florida. now is he over in puerto rico. meantime time to bring to our couch white house press secretary sarah huckabee sanders. how are you. >> it's great to be with you live in person. it's pretty exciting to finally see the curvey couch. brian: i know your dad is excited too. he is about to launch a syndicated show. >> he is. brian: has this been a surreal huckabee experience for you over the last few weeks. >> it's been a surreal experience in general. absolutely. it's been a whirl wind of a few months. it's been the honor and privilege of a lifetime to get to serve this president, work in the administration. and we have had a great first nine months and we have got a lot of work to do. steve: tough topics easy for me to say right now is the hurricane and that's one of the things that you guys have been worried about hurricane relief. now it's bearing down on puerto rico. >> yeah. i mean, we have had a series
4:36 am
as you know storms, director brock long has been working alongside all the state and local officials trying to make sure we put as many resources in place as possible. thanks to technology we have a lot more leeway on the front end of a lot of these storms allowing us to preposition resources. the federal government is doing all we can to help people in both, you know, puerto rico, the u.s. virgin islands and other surrounding islands as these storms are moving in. brian: storm in the united nations because they have been dealing with this problem for at least 20 years that is north korea. now as general mcmasters says run out of road. no more road to kick the can down. 45th president was going to have to be dealing with this. this president yesterday is calling kim jong un out. first he said he will feel the fury of the response. and yesterday over the last couple of days used the term rocket man. where did that come from how did that resonate?
4:37 am
what's the reaction been with mnuchin and others? >> that's a trump original. he is a master at branding. one of the reasons i think you hit the nail on the head. this is a problem we have been dealing with for 20 years. americans wanted somebody, a strong leader, somebody who wasn't going to put up with it anymore. that's one of the reasons i think donald trump won. they saw strength. they saw somebody who was not going to apologize for america. was not going to apologize for america's sovereignty and our success. they wanted somebody to stand up and be a fighter. they got that in donald trump. i think that was on full display yesterday in one of his stronger moments. it was a great reminder why people supported him and certainly why he is going to be very successful. ainsley: the crowd erupted into applause when he talked about being iran nuclear deal. they also clapped when he had that moment when he talked about how he is going to stand up for america first and they should do the same. listen to this sound bite and then we will get your reaction.
4:38 am
>> to its people. to our citizens to serve their needs, to ensure their safety. to preserve their rights and to defend their values. as president of the united states, i will always put america first. just like you as the leaders of your country also always and should always put your countries first. ainsley: has not not been done in the past? >> i don't think so. certainly i don't think the previous administration was always putting america first. i think there was a lot of, as i said apologizing for our success. that's not something that america wants. that's not what our country was founded on. and certainly i think you see that day in, day out by the support for this president. steve: sarah, yesterday, when the president was talking about iran deal and said it was a huge embarrassment. i don't think you have heard the last of it believe me.
4:39 am
what does that mean? >> you never want to get ahead of the president. i will let him make that announcement when the time comes. he has not made this a secret. steve: what announcement would that be? brian: by the 15th, right? >> what plans may change and what actions he is going to take to fix the mistakes of that deal on the front end. this is a president who doesn't shy away from what he thinks. he has been very clear, very consistent that he does not like this deal, that it was bad for america. and something that he aimed to change once he got into office. brian: the problem with getting out of this deal was it was front loaded. they got all the cash and relief from the sanctions. iran would actually probably be high fiving each ayatollah got the money and now we are free to legally build these weapons. >> i don't think as long as donald trump is president iran is going to be doing a lot of high fiving. brian: they will be speaking today at the united nations i'm sure he will have a retort for that. >> i'm sure he will. ainsley: a lot of people at
4:40 am
the media didn't like the rocket man comment. >> which means you are probably doing something right. if the mainstream media think it's bad the americans probably like it. ainsley: hillary clinton was on with stephen colbert last night and had comments against the speech. brian: she called the speech dark. >> everybody wants to talk about donald trump as escalating things. he isn't. north korea is but we have to have somebody who is going to stand up and say enough is enough. the president is doing that. he is going to protect americans. protect our allies and stand with our allies. and that's what he was elected to do. and that's what he is going to do every single day. steve: doesn't look as if in the u.s. senate the healthcare reform is dead. they are referring to it as a hail mary. >> it is football season after all. steve: graham cassidy bill. some are suggesting maybe there are 50 votes out there right now. somebody who does not like it is jimmy kimmel. he used his program last night to essentially say that senator cassidy had been on his show and lied to him. he is not going to provide for everybody in the
4:41 am
country. >> look, i certainly respect the position that he is in as a parent. he is speaking for the protection of his kid, as he should do. but, at the same time, we have to have a program that actually works and we know that that's not obamacare. it's simply not sustainable. it's collapsing. many markets where they don't even have providers anymore. we have got to get a system in place that actually works for all americans. this is a great step forward. i don't think there is ever anything wrong with putting more control and more power closer to the people that are going to be receiving that care. this allows states to have a lot more flexibility. again, you are not using this one size fits all approach, what works in california probably doesn't work in south dakota or arkansas. and so allowing that flexibility state by state is certainly a good thing. it's certainly a conservative thing. and it's a great step in the right direction, repealing and replacing obamacare which we desperately need to do. brian: sarah, the a.p. is running with a bunch of photographs with general kelly. we can see on the outside

change in the white house much more efficient running on military time. you know from the inside out. you can tell me if i am wrong or not. seems to be our perception. seems to be holding his head or showing exasperation or staring at the ground and people looking at those photos saying is he unhappy with the president's remarks. you know general kelly and the president. what's the dynamic there. >> general kelly has been a great edition to th addition to. they are working well together. is he a great leader. you don't get to be a four star general and not be a strong leader. the president has an abundance of energy. i don't know where it comes from. all of us on the staff are tired trying to keep up with him. i wouldn't be surprised if that's part of it. brian: doesn't mean is he upset by the speech. >> again, he has been part of the process. is he part of the speech writing process and very engaged. ainsley: he read the speech ahead of time any reaction might be because is he tired hand on forehead. >> i would certainly not read anything in to that picture any more than
4:43 am
probably just like the rest of us we're tired trying to keep up with this president who is working hard every day to help america. brian: katie schlapp going to help. >> i think. so she is a great edition to grn to the team. any time can you add more women to the team we are excited. press and comms office are all in women's hands. we are excited. brian: she has a lot of energy, too. steve: thanks for stopping by. >> thanks for having me. steve: up next kentucky senator rand paul gives us his take. he doesn't like the plan that the senate is talking about. brian: then, pete is having breakfast with friends in fayetteville, arkansas. you know something about that sarah. pete gets to eat for free. sarah would have had to pay, right? >> absolutely. ♪ i do believe there is a dream for everyone ♪ this is our country ♪ with tylenol pm.

steve: republican lawmakers urging the u.s. senate to get back to their last ditch effort to repeal obamacare. the graham-cassidy bill before the rules change at the end of this month. but our next guest not on board at this point and could be the one vote standing in the way of repeal. we are talking about republican kentucky senator rand paul who is joining us right now from capitol hill. >> good morning. steve: good morning to you. you are a no, right. >> as a physician, i have seen obamacare up close and personal and i hate every bit of it. i promised the voters for repeal. but this bill actually keeps the obamacare spending and just redistributes it among the states. it's a 1.2 trillion-dollar federal grant program and that's just not repeal. i didn't promise people to keep a trillion-dollar spending program and we shuffle the money among the states. this is not repeal. it's not -- it's barely
4:48 am
obamacare light. it keeps obamacare. it's not what we promised. steve: it's not what you promised and not total repeal. isn't it still better than what we have got? >> the thing is i don't know that we have to start with taking something that really keeps obamacare. when this bill comes up next week i will once again offer a real repeal there will be a choice there will be real repeal. i'm working another tact. i'm working with president trump on healthcare associations which can be done with no federal money, no federal taxes, no obamacare taxes. and what happens is people can buy insurance across state lines and people can join a group so they get group insurance which protects them against preexisting conditions. gets them a great price. this is going to be done, hopefully, by the president by re-examining the existing law. this something that is big, i think could be bigger than the graham cassidy bill but doesn't cost a trillion dollars. it's just not a conservative notion to vote for a trillion-dollar federal grant program.
4:49 am
steve: sure. but then again we heard from republicans in the last, what, seven years hey, just give us a chance we will repeal and replace and, of course, they got the chance and they didn't have a plan. real quickly before you go, senator, if you're a no, it's just going to take one or two other no, sir. who does this all come down to on the republican side who could possibly derail it? >> you know, there have been other objections from other parts of the caucus. the media has reported senator collins and murkowski. i can't speak for them. they have ospeak for themselves there are a number of people weary of this. they are holding their nose to vote for this thing. this is not repeal. this is not what we promised. the thing is this is not the last chance. we have many more opportunities. obamacare is unwinding. and ther there is nobody more fr repeal than i. i can't vote for something that's not repeal. steve: somebody who thinks it's a great idea is lindsey graham, is he one of the bill's co-authors. he will be joining us in the
4:50 am
next hour. senator. >> he has been known to be wrong and not very conservative on a number of issues. you can ask him how federalism is having a trillion-dollar tax program at the federal level and passing it out. that's not federalism. that's not consistent with the tenth amendment. the tenth amendment would send those powers back to the states. the states could raise taxes and have programs. this is a big federal government grab program and that has nothing to do with federalism. steve: all right. we're going to officially write you down you are a no. okay. >> i'm leaning that way, yes. steve: you are leaning that way indeed. sir, thanks for joining us today. >> thank you. steve: all right. coming up we will check in with pete hegseth. is he having breakfast with friends in fayetteville, arkansas. pete, you need a hair net back there in the kitchen. pete: no hair net. ♪ let the good times roll ♪ let the good times roll ♪ you always pay your insurance on time. tap one little bumper

who wanted to be president of the united states ever use that term. here's her observation last night with stephen colbert. >> i thought it was very dark, dangerous, not the kind of message that the leader of the greatest nation of the world should be delivering. what i hope the president would have said was something along the lines of, you know, we view this as dangerous to our allies to the region and even to our country. we call on all nations to work with us to try to end this threat posed by kim jong-un, and not call him rocket man, the old elton john song. but to say clearly we will not tolerate any attacks on our friends or ourselves. brian: he said that over and over again about the allies. ainsley: look what the president tweeted this morning? after allowing north korea to research and build nukes while

5:08 am
i think you see that day in and day out by the support for this president. brian: and, of course, she's referring to president obama who went out of his way to point out what he saw as america's problems. if you want an example, here's a look back at president obama at the united nations with the same green tiles in the background. >> in america, there is too much money in politics. too much entrenched partisanship. too much, too, little participation by citizen. we made our share of mistakes over these last 25 years, and we can only realize the promise of this institution's founding to replace the ravages of war with cooperation if powerful nations like my own accept constraints. sometimes i'm criticized in my own country for professing a belief for international norms. so the united states work with many nations to curb capitalism. brian: what makes you feel
5:09 am
better? i mean, i feel like i need a pr prozac right now i'm so depressed. ainsley: that was the apology tour. steve: yeah, and why so many world leaders were shocked that this guy showed up as president of the united states. he was so blunt. but what was he talking about? he was talking about sovereignty. in fact, mentioned the word sovereignty 19 times. a chief executive for the country and the world is just getting used to it. ainsley: new sheriff in the world. let's know what you think about it. e-mail us. brian: great presentation, unbelievable composure, great charisma, it's the content of what he was relying that makes you say to yourself "i thought we're in a great country. no one says we're perfect, but we have to tell them what their perceptions of us are? steve: two different presidents, two different

5:17 am
ainsley: president trump's recent deal making attempts with the democrats is no secret. first debt ceiling, daca, and health care and maybe tax reform. so are republicans finally getting the message? here to weigh in, ronna daniel. great to have you here. >> it's graduate to be here. ainsley: how do you answer that question? are republicans getting the message? >> well, we see this in congress right now the pushing for the grand cassidy bill that americans are failing under obamacare. it is failing. 45% of the counties in this country by 2018 will have one carrier or no carrier. and republicans are working as hard as they can to bring relief to the american people but also deliver on a campaign promise that we ran on. so i feel really good about this bill. i hope we can push this through. the money for the state, putting the state's craft. a state-specific solution. let republican governors deal with it. democrat governors deal with it.
5:18 am
it's a bipartisan solution. but it's also the best way to help the american people. ainsley: well, like it or not, donald trump -- people elected him -- they're sick of the swamp, sick of the establishment. they like him because he remembers the middle guy, the guy who's just trying to put food on the table. middle of the country, southern state. they love him. they support him. so i don't understand why the republicans aren't getting on -- you would think they would be smart to do that because they're up for reelection soon. many of them are in these states that where donald trump won. >> yeah. president trump represents change. and it was a change election. they looked at a businessman, somebody who gets results, somebody who's been successful, and they said this is a person who's going to go to washington and champion that average working family who isn't happy with heats happening in our nation's capital. and president trump's continuing to deliver on his promises but health care is a signature thing that we need to figure out for the american people because it's failing. and so seeing the senate push time and time again to try to get this passed i think should give encouragement to republicans and americans
5:19 am
across the country that republicans recognize that we have to get things done, and we are fighting for everyone around the one. ainsley: what was your reaction when you saw nancy pelosi and chuck schumer at the white house? >> yeah. you know, i understand why the president's doing it because he's saying i'm results-driven. whatever's best for the american people, i'm going to do. and if i have to work across party lines, which i think actually a lot of people want to see more of. they're saying -- he's saying we're going to get it done because at the end of the day, i need to deliver for the people who elected me, and that's exactly why people in my state of michigan look to donald trump and said we need to elect him to be our next president because the status quo in washington is not snookering what's your message to the lawmakers in washington to the establishment like the john mccontains who have not allowed health care to pass? >> well, as the party chair, i'm very concerned about 2018 and the midterms because it is the senate and the house. and if we lose majority, we're not going to be voting on repealing or replacing obamacare, we're going to be voting on single pair. and you look at what bernie sanders has put forward, it
5:20 am
will destroy our health care system, it will cost $32 trillion. it will decimate our country. republicans have an opportunity right now. please cease it. give the president the majority for his first term. we need to act for the american people, and this is our time to take the opportunity. ainsley: you have a big job ahead. thanks. we have a fox news alert. hurricane maria tearing through right now. bringing. the results are in, the brand-new dial that you will only see next. that's next when it comes to hean trust the brand doctors trust for themselves. nexium 24hr is the number one choice of doctors and pharmacists for their own frequent heartburn. and all day all night protection. when it comes to frequent heartburn, trust nexium 24hr.

5:24 am
>> gave a speech about america first, which winds up in effect, i think, making america last and diplomacy last or making america alone fundamentally. the childish rhetoric -- i mean, if name-calling was going to solve this problem, donald trump would have already solved the problem. steve: so you have john kerry moments ago talking about the president's speech. lee carter and partners actually did do some dial testing on what the president said yesterday. should we do the dial on what john kerry just did? >> we can do that. i'll be back tomorrow talking about that. steve: if you missed it, essentially we're going to be talking about three moments from the speech yesterday. the first one that got all the headlines is where the president refers to kim jong-un as rocket man.
5:25 am
who should watch out and watch the dials. trump: the united states has great strength and patience. but if it is forced to defend itself for its allies, we will have no choice but to totally destroy north korea. rocket man is on a suicide mission for himself and for his regime. steve: when he said rocket man, lee carter just giggled, and it looks like republicans and independents really liked that. >> you can see they did. republicans and independents an a. democrats, a d minus. i thought this was fascinating. republicans and independents thought this was a strong message. no ambiguity. now, when they first heard him talking about how he was going to go after north korea, really afraid, went all the way down, and then rocket man, even further. so democrats when they were talking about how donald trump is treating north korea, they're saying that he's dangerous. so really interesting to see
5:26 am
that divide. steve: not only did he talk about north korea, he also talked about iran. watch the dials. >> the iran deal was one of the worst and most one-sided transactions the united states has ever entered into. frankly, that deal is an embarrassment to the united states, and i don't think you've heard the last of it. believe me. it is time for the entire world to join us in demanding that iran's government end its pursuit of death and destruction. it is time for the regime to free all americans and citizens of other nations that they have unjustly detained. steve: the red line off the screen. >> you can see republicans gave it an a-plus, independents a minus and democrats d. this is a very consistent donald trump. he promised to get tough on north korea, tough on iran, make better deals, he was going to work on this. this is exactly what he
5:27 am
promised, and the republicans and independents really liked it. he delivered on it. democrats, not as much. steve: when he ran for president, he was talking a lot about how the un is a bloated mess. here he was yesterday talking about the amount of money we contribute to the united nations. trump: the united states is one out of 193 countries in the united nations, and yet we pay 22% of the entire budget and more. in fact, we pay far more than anybody realizes. the united states bears an unfair cost burden. but to be fair, if it could actually accomplish all of its stated goals, especially the goal of peace, this investment would easily be well worth it. >> so you can see the republicans and independents gave this an a. democrats a c minus. they were coming around to this message, especially when he talked about especially the
5:28 am
goal of peace. this investment would be easily worth it. we heard from democrats who in principle they agreed a lot with what the president said. in practice when talking about iran, north korea, and venezuela, they were afraid. the whole term dangerous came up over and over again from democrats. while on the republican side, we heard strength and finally. steve: his base and independents loved his address. >> they did. they said one of the greatest state of the union. steve: thanks for putting that to the dial test. >> thank you. steve: we found out what we heard of lindsey graham's appeal to obamacare. listen to this. >> he's known to be wrong and not conservative on a number of issues. so you can ask him how federalism is. having a trillion-dollar tax program at the federal level and passing it out. steve: up next, we'll do just that as brian talks to senator lindsey graham. but first, it was colin kaepernick now 8-year-olds are kneeling at the national anthem.
5:29 am

it's a highly contagious disease that can be really serious... especially for my precious new grandchild. it's whooping cough. every family member, including those around new babies, should talk to their doctor or pharmacist about getting vaccinated. ainsley: hurricane maria bearing down on puerto rico moments after making landfall. brian: that is unbelievable. the monster category four storm already claiming at least nine lives. steve: steve has been reporting from a parking structure in san juan, puerto rico where the powerful storm is bearing down right now. and as we can see, he is out in the street. are you safe there, steve?
5:33 am
>> hey, steve. we've been seeing some strong winds. well over 100 miles for about two hours here. strong enough to cause physical destruction. we've seen trees snap. we've seen cars of well made structures collapse, balconies fly off, roofs fly off. this for this island of 3.5 million people, a u.s. territory was really a worse case scenario. they have not been hit by a major storm in more than 80 years, and this looks like a direct hit -- and a direct hit in the worst possible place. san juan. the capital here and the most heavily-populated part of the island. it's also coming at a terrible time for the island. two weeks ago, they got a gleaning blow from hurricane irma. that was still enough to knock out power for a million people. this is a direct hit. so what it's going to do to power, what it's going to do to water, right now, it's causing destruction. it's tearing buildings apart. but the aftermath with 10 to
5:34 am
15 inches of rain, a 10-foot storm surge and possible mud slides, especially in the interior of the country, that could be the real danger in this follow-up. i'm going to toss it back to you guys. ainsley: steve, that flag is still flying, progressive american resilience. but compare this -- i know you've been through so many hurricanes. compare this to others. >> there's 3.5 million people here. they've opened up 500 shelters. but only about 11,000 people have taken advantage of those shelters per the governor as of this morning. he has warned that this could be a catastrophe for the island and it's life-threatening for people in simple structures or in low-lying areas. we've seen them go really from door to door with megaphones to try to get people into the shelters but surprisingly low turnout so far. the death toll right now is in the single digits. but is this goes on for the next few hours here and once they see the aftermath, that could rise considerably. toss it back to you guys.
5:35 am
brian: all right. steve, thanks. steve: take cover. absolutely. he's been able to demonstrate how strong the winds are right there. janice, you were just showing us on the radar and the satellite, he is about to be in the eye of the storm. >> right. we actually don't have satellite imagery right now from puerto rico because, obviously, the power is out in a lot of these areas. but the storm made landfall across southeastern portions of the island, puerto rico, and now the eye is going over san juan, so there's going to be a period of calm for our own steve and people are urged to stay inside because when the eye comes over, it's a period of quiet and people can be -- think it's okay to go outside. but you can't because the backside of the storm is going to eventually move in towards san juan, puerto rico. and then we're going to watch this north and westward. the bahamas, we think it's going to go east of you. but here's the track as of 8:00 a.m. it hasn't weakened very much
5:36 am
overland. it's going to tan to make its northwestern tour, and then we're going to have to watch the east coast. florida, i think you're out of the way but the potential for an impact anywhere through the carolinas and the mid-atlantic and northeast, you need to watch this storm very carefully. all it takes is high pressure to build in and push this storm toward the east coast, so we'll have to watch that. but puerto rico, the worst storm experienced in almost 80 years and to have a category four make landfall on u.s. land, that's never happened before. so three category fours in one year making landfall across the u.s. has never happened in meteorological history. steve: what a year. all right. thank you very much. brian: or u.s. virgin islands. oh, my goodness. it's all rubble anyway. >> category five on the u.s. virgin islands. brian: 24 mince now before the top of the hour. it could be her worst nightmare. house majority leader nancy pelosi shouted down by her dreamers. she and fellow democrats vowed
5:37 am
to protect. >> do you want to hear an answer? or do you want to just shout? [chanting] ainsley: that protest lasted over 30 minutes. but do the democrats only have themselves to blame for the hostile environment? steve: here to talk to us and joining us live, what do you think her message is? >> well, liberal ones that have all of these tactics have been in these hispanic neighborhoods for decades, so it's no surprise that many of these immigration activists are taking on this cause. the problem is it's very counterproductive; right? i mean, the dreamers are essentially asking the american people for a gift, perhaps the greatest gift of all; right? to be allowed to state here, despite their illegal status. steve: but she's on their side. >> that's right. she is. and i really -- what i say to these dreamers is they really need to rethink their tactics
5:38 am
to think about what can they do to show that they love and respect our country and want to serve it? i would suggest to that instead of protesting, drop these tactics and maybe do a day of going to the capital of every state that you're in and singing the american anthem. and then maybe doing a day of service. this is not helping their cause. brian: i think these are illegals. they had 11 million. there's not 11 million dreamers. there's 800,000 they estimate. so i think these are just illegals here too. >> it's probably a mix of immigration activists, some of them, perhaps, illegal, some of them dreamers who have this status from obama. but, you know, this isn't the first time they've been tone death. i mean, how many of us have seen immigration protests where they're waving mexican flags? and then, again, insulting americans who might disagree with them calling them races. this is to the very people who really hold your fate in your hans. ainsley: what did you think
5:39 am
about the story of the 8-year-olds taking a knee during the national anthem at the elementary school because h they asked the coach about colin kaepernick, and he said that sounded cool. and the parents supported it. >> representative of the american people when our own american citizens are showing such disregard for the united states. the flag and really the blood that has been spilled on behalf of all of us. i'm the daughter of a veteran, and this is deeply offensive. nonetheless, they absolutely do have the right to do this. but we have the right to be -- to get on team and say this is shameful. brian: yeah, you're not happy with your country, so i'm going to take a knee. so maybe the country can raise up to the standards of an 8 year old. >> these kids clearly. i'm a parent. you're all parents. these 8-year-olds don't know what they're doing. they're following the lead of
5:40 am
their parents. ainsley: you wouldn't support it if -- >> are you kidding me? i would pull my kid out of that football league in about 2.5 seconds. i would never, ever allow my kids to disrespect -- every day i tell my kids you are so lucky to live in this country. it is a blessing, and it goes right back to what we're talking about with the dreamers. this is a gift to be born here. this is a gift that the american people are poised to get. brian: it doesn't mean we're perfect. but at least we're trying. >> it doesn't get better than america. it really doesn't. ainsley: not only does she have the cutest family ever?" how many kids are there? you're amazing. you're also finding time to be on outnumbered today at noon. steve: on outnumbered at home? outnumbered at noon. ainsley: all over the place. thank you. brian: 20 minutes now before the top of the hour. you heard senator rand paul, what he thinks of senator lindsey's plan to repeal obamacare. >> he's been known to be wrong and not very conservative on a number of issues, so you can ask him how federalism is

5:45 am
brian: kimmel, who obviously son was in a very critical problem with his heart illness. is he actually portraying the graham-cassidy bill properly last night on his late night show? joining us now, is lindsey graham, one of the cosponsors of that bill. senator, he won off on you and senator cassidy directly. says mean-spirited. says you have nothing for precondition, he's a man for means and those for out means, those kids will die. what's your reaction? >> well, he's describing obamacare 70% of the counties in this country down to one provider. many of them have lost all choice. obamacare is collapsing around us. if you like your doctor, you can keep it, didn't really hold up. so obamacare is collapsing, access to health care is going down. we try to turn that around. and here's what i would say to mr. kimmel. i understand the emotional nature of having a sick child, and we're all great for your child is doing well. bill cassidy is a doctor who
5:46 am
worked in a nonprofit hospital serving the underprivileged. factually, our bill requires preexisting illnesses to be covered in the block grant. we run it through the chips program, the children's health program that's been in existence for 20 years. it has to be compliant with the terms of that program. you do cover preexisting illnesses, but will allow 50 states to come up with solutions to help sick people, not just some bureaucrat in washington. and i bet you this, brian. i bet you he never called senator cassidy and said would you please set this straight? i bet he looked at some liberal talking point, bought it hook, line, and sinker, and went after bill cassidy without talking to him, and i think that's unfair. brian: senator, i know you have a tough job. but you're very close to getting this passed. however, this is not helping they say a group of ten governors argued against the graham-cassidy bill, including five from republican states. they don't like it.
5:47 am
what's your answer? >> well, federalism is about their opinion. i respect their opinion. but a majority of republican governors are onboard. the governor of arizona is onboard. the governor of kentucky is onboard. socialism is having money and power in the hands of the federal government, running your life, making decisions for you through the instruments of the federal government. federalism is what we're trying to achieve here. we eliminate the individual mandate and the employee mandate, the heart and soul of obamacare. that is going at the federal level. we take the money and send it back to the states in a block grant formula where they can administer health care. and if you don't like the outcome, you can complain to your governor. that is federalism, and that is why president trump will sign this bill. what i will say to senator paul is everybody on the left is accusing me and senator cassidy of killing people. they know this is the end of single pair health care, and
5:48 am
they're worried to death that their dream of single pair health care ends when graham-cassidy becomes law. so this is a choice between socialism and federalism. our last best chance and donald trump has done everything in his power to pass this bill. a vast majority of republican governors are onboard. they want the money. they want the power. they want to get health care out of washington. they want to do it themselves, and i guarantee patients in this country will do better. brian: what was the last conversation with senator mccain like? he was thumbs down last time. do you have him because the governor of arizona says i'm for this. what was senator mccain telling his good friend lindsey graham? >> well, senator mccain ran a campaign the heart and soul of obamacare. he has voted numerous times to repeal it. nobody believes in federalism more than john mccain. he was worried about arizona. two thumbs up from governor ducey says give me the money, give me the power, i can do a
5:49 am
better job than obamacare. arizona is suffering mightily under obamacare. 100% increase -- brian: senator, yes or no, is he going to be onboard? >> he's looking at it. he wanted to see if there was a bipartisan alternative. senator alexander was working with senator murray. nothing happened. and i can tell you this. repeal, replace, and bipartisan will not fit in the same sentence when it comes to obamacare. the democrats are not going to do anything but on the margins change it. i'm hoping, and i believe that senator mccain is going to look at it closely. it will be up to him. but i will say this to the country as a whole. if you want to repeal and replace obamacare, it gets the money out of washington, and this is our last best chance and president trump will sign this into law. so liberals are going crazy because they know we end the mark toward single pair health care. conservatives should rally around this because this is federalism. brian: the only votes we know
5:50 am
right now rand paul is up -- steve: sullivan, i'm meeting with today. alaska has unique needs. i'm very positive. the president has helped us a lot. i know i'm running over time but in all the things i've done in 20 years, this is the biggest yet. trying to get money and power out of washington. to get us to single pair health care and get money and power to home is a big accomplishment to the trump administration. brian: respect to you and senator cassidy have acquired on both sides of the aisle can help you pass something like this. senator graham, thank you so much. >> thank you. brian: straight ahead, pete is having breakfast with friends in arkansas. we're going to check in with him in a matter of moments woman: we demand a lot from our eyes every day. i should know. i have chronic dry eye

5:55 am
from mexico, originally came here as a child. a trump supporter. what do you make right now of his approach to immigration? and should he continue to try to fight for a wall? >> yes. i believe that would be a great step for him. i am a daca person, i guess. >> what's been fought to get citizenship. >> yes. when i became 18 -- well, we were legal residents while i was growing up. when i became 18, i decided that i wanted to stay here, so i became -- i applied for citizenship and became a u.s. citizen. first one out of six kids. pete: very cool. and your husband -- what's your first name gwen? both veterans of this country. we don't have that much time, unfortunately, but what do you like about what this president is doing right now? >> i think he's one of us. he wasn't a politician, and i think that's why i supported him from the beginning, and i think he's doing a great job. pete: and, sir, we've got to
5:56 am
leave it right there, unfortunately. never have enough time. thank you for your service in vietnam and your service in iraq. we actually served at the same base. funny how it works out. more fox and friends on the other side of the break. with hydrogenated oil...
