griff griff i'm very honored to be on the curvey couch. first time ever old couch i made an appearance. last one i made an appearance but this is my first time on this one. pete: all the information you ever need to navigate the show good to have new studio, safe, sound, and dry. griff: i'm much more comfortable hail of wind; pete: spend four hours on this one you will get plenty of wind and lightning. griff: congratulations, by the way. as the father of two daughters. congratulations. your husband will know no greater joy than that daughter. abby: i think that's very true. we are very excited. thank you very much. we have a big show today. pete: ton of news.
abby: president trump back on the stump last night but so much going on with healthcare and the graham-cassidy bill. pete: luther strange and roy moore to repace jeff sessions. is he down there stumping for luther strange. news broke in the middle of the day yesterday that a big vote that republicans were hoping would be a yes vote on the graham bill that you talked about to repeal and replace obamacare instead went in the other direction. of course, president trump took to the podium to have a few words about senator mccain's statement that he will not be voting for the graham-cassidy bill. take a listen. >> now, john mccain. [crowd boos] >> john mccain was not on the list. so that was a totally unexpected thing. terrible. honestly, terrible. repeal and replace. because john mccain, if you look at his campaign, his last campaign was all about repeal and replace. repeal and replace. so, he decided to do
something different. and that's fine. i say we still have a chance -- oh, we're going to do it eventually. abby: it is very close. the way it stands now. you think about it 52 republicans in the senate. it needs to be at 50. so you already have two nos, rand paul and john mccain. now up to susan collins and murkowski of alaska. collins said she is veering no on this. it's not looking very good. griff: guy in washington when i'm not in hurricanes i'm in washington, d.c. for reporting. i feel like i have seen this before. breaking news, they have agreed on something, and it's going to pass. the house passed it. but the senate, this seems like it's not going to go anywhere. pete: breaking news susan collins and lisa murkowski is voting with the democrats. there is maybe john mccain could come around. holding a couple committee meeting. john mccain's big beef i
want regular order swamp speak for i want this to go on forever. i want democrats to take control of the process and i want it to become convoluted i'm frustrated because i have had so much respect for john mccain over the years. he was once a maverick now he is just a democrat. how many times is he going to vote against the agenda he said he was going to do. it's frustrating to watch. abby: i will push back on that a little bit. what he did say what i don't like about it is it is down party lines which is what republicans were criticizing the democrats for when president obama shoved obamacare down people's throats. they didn't ask for any opinions from the other side of the aisle or anyone from outside of capitol hill, which, you know, i think that does make some sense you want as many voices at the table as possible. at the same time though i mean. pete: they had seven years, abby. tons of outside think tanks on the republican side put input on this and still can't coalesce. griff: jimmy kimmel is praising john mccain with the tweet saying at senator
john mccain hero again and again and now again. as i senator elect kimmel didn't make legislation but who am i to say. abby: chuck schumer has been helping jimmy kimmel because he gave his rant the other night. he has his own personal story what he has been through with his own baby with heart problems. i totally understanding that everyone has their right to tell their story on television if they have that opportunity. they went to chuck schumer to get some talking points but didn't go to the other side. he didn't talk to cassidy or to graham to say at least help me understanding where you are coming from. what's in your bill so i can properly explain this to the american people. pete: for months his staff has been talking to chuck schumer reported by the daily beast that they have been in conversations about this healthcare bill. think about this. for months, a network evening show has been talking to one side of the aisle to get their talking points on a bill. if you want confirmation that the so-called mainstream media is actually the opposition party in bed with the democrats, there you have it.
how much talk has his staff had with senator graham or cassidy or the majority leader? probably none, maybe some. let us know. jimmy kimmel let us know you have talked to both sides. the report something we are going to get the talking points from chuck and nancy and fight this bill through the media. no surprise that those of us who feel like the deck is stacked against real reform in washington. abby: have you seen this play out before and it's not looking very good. this might be their final chance to do healthcare. then they move on to tax reform. midterms are around the corner. fowfer tough for them to get something done. griff grifer they have a deadline september 30th. go back to 60 votes. pete: what's your overunder 50% chance that it happens? griff: i would absolutely put my money on the fact this goes down like skinny repeal goes down. i don't think there is enough there in this even though they move block grants back to the state to give more power back to the states. you would have thought lindsey graham would have talked to his best friend john mccain before this. i don't think it's going to happen if i had to guess.
that, of course, is going to be the end of any effort to repeal and replace. and then they are now going to be forced to negotiate with democrats. and that piece of legislation is going to have to attract upwards of 10 democrats. it's not going to look like this one. pete: 10 union corns. 10 democrats that work with the president. i'm still looking for them. abby: to be a fly on the wall with graham and mccain listening to their conversations because they are very close. moving on, there is a lot going on. north korea as well. pete: we also mentioned he had a long speech last night. the president went in and talked about protecting the american people from a nuclear north korea. he added a little nickname to the rocket man. it's not just the rocket man kim jong un it's little rocket man. >> we can't have mad men out there shooting rockets all over the place. by the way, rocket man should have been handled a long time ago. [cheers] >> he should have been handled 8 years ago and 4 years ago. and honestly and 15 years
ago. and 20 years ago. and 25 years ago. this shouldn't be handled now. but i'm going to handle it because we have to handle it. little rocket man, we're going to do it because we really have no choice. we really have no choice. pete: have you always talked about china. in the brass tach sense they did put a move banks. ainsley: all the moves corrected at china. he has got to continue coming down very hard. i was watching another network briefly and they said the president was acting like a child in tough rhetoric. i'm thinking what do we want at this point? you want to have someone tough. you want to have someone that gives it to north korea and china. because where we are now, that is because years and years we have had no one to fully stand up to them. griff: we talk to people on the street that's coming up later. that's the main impression we got. no one is going to be talking about that today.
they are going to be talking about what the president has to say about nfl players taking a knee. pete: talking about channeling the way the american people do that's what entrepreneurship did in the campaign. deaf it last night. talking about taking a knee and disrespecting the flag. take a listen. >> luther and i and everyone in this arena tonight are unified by the same great american values. we're proud of our country. we respect our flag. wouldn't you lo to see one of these nfl owners when somebody disrespects our flag to say get that son of a [bleep] off the field right now. out. he's fired. [cheers and applause] he's fired! [chanting u.s.a.] abby: this is what his base loves so much about what he has done on that stump. speech writers are sitting there with their hands over their eye what is is happening right now because they didn't plan that obviously. this is what i feel when i'm
out at the diners and you guys have done this, too. that is where supporters find him at his best. they feel like is he talking directly to them. and hitting on issues no president would ever hit on. pete: exactly. he speaks the same way they speak with the same sentiment that average people feel which is this flag matters to me. it has always meant something. you play a game for a living. stand up. and these owners who measure how high their socks are. they have uniform policies for socks can't make millionaires stand up for the national anthem. he is totally right. griff: jerry jones said he didn't like the knee. we will see if anyone this week takes a knee. i want to see what our viewers think. email us. abby: firstname.lastname@example.org. pete: email email@example.com. you should have been reading it through the whole segment instead you decided to talk. abby: email us at friends firstname.lastname@example.org. abby: right call in calling

[cheers and applause] he should have been handled a long time ago by clinton. i won't mention the republicans, right? by obama. this is a different time. griff: president trump calling out kim jong un after the north korean dictator threatened to detonate a hydrogen bomb. if he follows through with this threat, what should we expect. advisor to dick cheney and fox news contributor michael waltz. colonel, what say you? is it time to finally act? it's been more than 22 missile tests since the beginning of the year. is it time to do something? >> well, exploding a nuclear tipped missile over the pacific ocean could be a logical final step for the north korean regime to demonstrate its capability and to demonstrate that it
has been able to load and miniaturize a war head on to an icbm and actually get it, you know, kind of fully functional. that comes with a lot of risks for the north korean regime. i think it could be a final straw for china. and i think it could be a final straw for the international community to demand regime change. but they could do it. frif griff if you or south korea or japan, our allies where missiles have literally been flying over their heads, what are they thinking this morning? >> so a couple of things. you know, the south koreans are in discussions with the united states about reintroducing tactical nuclear weapons back into the south korean peninsula, the japanese are we looking their constitution which prevents them from having offensive military capabilities and actually making that massive change in their society to so that they could go on the offense. really who we need to be
talking to this morning is china. china has the ability to choke the north korean regime off economically, if it wanted to. it made a huge step this week with telling its banking system to clamp down on the regime and to no longer do business. but now they have to follow through. china has a history and a habit of kind of dialing things up when international pressure dials up. and then when we -- you know, when we shift away or attention did i investigators, then they kind of go back to their same old ways. griff: colonel very quickly you advised vice president cheney. what do you think of the president's speech to the u.n. he said he would totally destroy north korea. was that the right move? what was your take on the speech at the u.n. >> i wish hey made the distinction between the north korea regime and north korean people. those people are suffering horribly under his father and grandfather. that said i'm fine with the tough talk. the calculus has to change in the region. right now from china's perspective, and i think that's who he was talking to much more than he was
talking to north korea that, you know, right now, from china's perspective, this is our problem. this is a south korean problem. it's a japanese problem. it's not theirs. now why are making it their problem. both through secondary sanctions, which means we are targeting chinese entities, that are doing business with north korea and by changing the security dynamic like i just mentioned where their old rivals, the japanese are now going on the offense. griff: lastly, "yes" or "no," colonel, is the hydrogen test the red line now? >> i think that would be unprecedented. it hasn't happened, actually, since the 1980s with the chinese, they did it over land to. do it over international waters in addition to having a lot of dead fish, it would be so hugely provocative that i think it could finally change that calculus that i was talking about. griff: thank you colonel michael waltz, preechingts your time. >> thank you. griff: senator john mccain saying once again he will vote no on the republican healthcare repeal.

pete: invictus games are very cool. abby: john mccain breaking another from higg g.o.p. colleagues announcing opposition to the graham-cassidy bill. pete: i would consider legislation similar to that offered by my friends graham-cassidy were it the products of extensive hearings, debate and amendments. but that has not been the case and cannot in good conscious vote for the graham-cassidy proposal. abby: here to talk about this is tammy bruce. >> thanks for having me. abby: it is a big deal because there are only 52 republicans in the senate. you said this classic establishment vs. change in washington. how is this going to end? >> look, this shouldn't be a surprise. senator mccain has been in there now 30 years. he is best friends with one of the authors of the bill. he knows the process. he has called obamacare an abysmal failure. we all know how it's destroying people's lives. i think people find it hard to believe that he would walk away from helping the american people over
procedure. so this is something larger. and i think and we saw it in the last process as well. have you got individuals. he talks to mcconnell. everybody knows that the mccain cassidy bill would be. if it was about procedure. why not for the last year has mccain not been working on that? why not since the last -- and we know he has had his health issues. he has gone come back and did the votes. very engaged. not a passive man. i think it's disingenuous. comes right back down to this notion of the anti-trump framework. it's very basic versus what the president is trying to change that they don't really want to give him the victory. they believe that perhaps this can change essentially at some point. but, in the meantime, the american people are being harmed. pete: tammy, at these moments we see the same characters pop up. john mccain last time thumb's down. rand paul always agitating. lisa mur cow i murkowski and sun
collins. mitch mcconnell not doing anything to turn things around. maybe punishment is in order. >> this is what leadership is supposed to do get people in order. right? it might be like rounding up cats sometimes. he has also been in there for decades. these people know what they're doing. the fact there was no -- with collins and murkowski could have removed them from miss there could have been some punishment to get them in order, move through with the agenda that the leader has, which is supposed to mirror so some degree, of course, what the president wants. the agenda of the party. and what they have campaigned on for six or seven years. pete: that pesky thing, too. why suddenline is there no punishment? since there was no punishment for senators murkowski or collins. of course they are going to do the same thing and for frankly the same reason. we know that obamacare is on a death bed. they have got to take action. graham-collins is not perfect. at least it begins to move news a position where we are
less harmed and perhaps get to more repeal. that's their job and that's the issue here. abby: tammy a lot of people get their politics from late-night television and this past week jimmy kimmel has been peek speaking out on the healthcare bill and turned out he got many of the talking points from chuck schumer. the question is for months now. that's one side of it as far as we know, he has not asked the other side cassidy or graham for their perspective or their thoughts on where they are coming from on this bill. >> yeah. look, the world is that he has been coached and has been for months. he made up his mind he wanted to kill this monstrous thing. here is the problem. then you have a preconceived point of view. then you go look for the information that will support that. pete: correct. >> very different than going to look for the facts of the matter. whether you are an audience of a late night comedy show or "fox & friends" news program at night, people want the facts of the matter. and they get the impression well he has determined this by looking at the entire field. in fact, it wasn't. and to not also disclose to
his audience that it's not just -- look, the son -- the horrible dynamic there that this is just a regular person who has learned about this and this is his position or in fact, no, he has been coached on a partisan way, moving in a partisan framework to destroy something that he determined in a preconceived framework that should be killed. abby: why not have cassidy back on the show again and have a debate. go back and forth that would be useful for people watching. pete: the type of thing we do on this show. >> it is. it's about think tanks and information, which he received from senator schumer bolstering their preferred outcomes. pete: this is honest question. is there any difference between democrats and late night comedians? are they one in the same? >> i don't even know if it's about democrats politics. it's about liberalism about the idea that only government can help. in addition to being wrongs
on the issues when it comes to how people with get the best hurricane and healthcare that won't bankrupt them. when government is involved. when the federal government is involved. they ruin lives. it is the problem. and, yet, all of this rhetoric is only the government can help and is that true liberal position and at this point, of course, hollywood is a machine for that kind of position. abby: tammy, good to have you with us this morning. pete: good stuff. president trump holding a big rally in alabama for senator luther strange. but he didn't always back the senator. hear the president's story about how he came to support the man he now calls big luther. abby: this is a good one. morgan freeman slammed by >> telling is a fact we are at war. abby: now russia is declaring war on him. more on that coming up. i no longer live with

hurricane maria out there. no power. still very hot there. more rain showers potentially today. the storm will continue to pull off toward the north. get closer toward the manhattamid-atlantic. certainly beach erosion and maybe 60 to 70 mile-per-hour winds as well. then it will make this hard right turn as fall approaches parts of the east coast. short-term you get idea from motion here. snow across the northern rockies and then all across the east it is high and hot and dry. and that is going to continue. look at these temperatures, today 94 degrees in chicago. so our first full day of fall. 94. 91 in louisville. you get the idea. tomorrow guys here we are going to be pushing 90 degrees. so still surgeon hanging on. cold air mass gets here by the time we get towards friday and that changes everything and boots maria out of here. abby: then summer is officially over at that point? rick: it's officially over

kevin? abby: hey, kevin. >> good morning. >> i love this comment from donald trump. and, you know what most of america has been saying the same thing. how do you allow a kaepernick and all these other guys, we, on my website, we detailed all the people in week one who took a knee or raised their fist or things like this. and every single one of those teams, you can't help but say i hope they lose. and so the idea that donald trump is finally put the spotlight on this, i find, unbelievable. and a good thing, by the way. abby: what do you think the action is going to be not only from the nfl but just society? >> i think the reaction is going to be with the same thing that happened with immigration. the same thing that happened with healthcare. the same thing that happened whenever donald trump decides he is going to finally call somebody out. because what this guy has been able to do is tap into essentially the pulse of america on practically every issue. and it's because he is not a politician. he is actually paying attention to what people are saying. look, the nfl ratings are in
the tank. and there is a reason for that it's because of collin kaepernick. i call it the kaepernick effect. in sports has gone from being a meritocracy. you should get out on the field, do the best you can and get off. if you want to be a social justice warrior, go march somewhere else. i don't watch football or baseball or any other sport so that i can get your opinion about politics. pete: that's right, kevin. at this point when does the taking a knee end? when what does the specific grievance where they will stand up or just an ongoing thing we will take a knee because it's america? >> well, look, first of all, peter, all these guys taking a knee, they really have no -- i mean, collin kaepernick had so little, you know, notoriety in terms of how he knew -- in terms of how he grew up. there was no limit to -- he never felt any of this. i guess is what i'm trying to say. the idea that these kids are taking knees and things like this. has been ridiculous to begin with they believe that
something happened. yes, our cops shooting people, yeah. they are not doing it in the way that these guys are doing it. so the idea that these guys are finally saying, look, and i'm talking about donald trump saying look, owners, if you want to do something about this, take a stance. collin kaepernick and all these other guys would not be taking a knee if their livelihoods depended on it they would absolutely stand. they would stand and put their hands over their hearts if the owners said if you don't do this, you are going to be out. kaepernick is really beginning to feel. this. griff: let me chime in real quick because you and i were together in st. louis during the riots. received a rough welcome blm black lives matter protesting him. what was that about? >> i think it was hysterical to watch comey who probably felt like it was going to be, you know, momma's milk when he went to howard university and suddenly he is getting booed. now, what it was about was blacks are saying that comey is responsible for the fbi, which is, quite frankly not -- in terms of how the fbi and the justice system is treating blacks.
it's it's unfair to comey that that happened. i think the the fact that comey is caught up in this thing and that the blacks at howard and quite frankly all over the country are blaming leftists like comey is a pretty bad sign for the democrats. because it continues this way, then people like nancy pelosi who got booed by, you know, the latino kids are going to -- they are all going to start experiencing something that the left has not seen for quite some time. pete: we will play that tape at some point we shall not be moved.

[crowd boos] >> john mccain's list -- [crowd boos] >> john mccain was not on the list so that was a terrible thing, honestly terrible. repeal and replace because
john mccain, if you look at his campaign, his last campaign was all about repeal and replace. so, he decided to do something different and that's fine. and i say we still have a chance -- oh, we're going to do it eventually. we're going to do it eventually. abby: the president already up this morning and tweeting about what happened with this bill because it came out yesterday afternoon that john mccain was saying no to this. he said john mccain never had any intention of voting for this bill which his governor loves. he campaigned on repeal and replace, let arizona down. he continues on. arizona had 116% increase in obamacare premiums last year with deductibles very high. chuck schumer sold john mccain a bill of goods, sad. finally large block grants to state is good thing to do. better control and management. great for arizona. mccain let his best friend, lindsey graham who as you know very, very close down. he was one of the sponsors of this bill, the graham cassidy bill. griff: you would have thought they might have

the states. someone that is praising john mccain. very outspoken about this healthcare bill. thanthank you senator john john mccain for being a hero again and again and now again. pete: this is late night comedian turned policy analyst tweeted yesterday about john mccain. maybe it wasn't actually him controlling his twitter account. could could have been the staff of the chuck schumer we found out yesterday from the daily beast that chuck schumer's staff has been in cahoots with jimmy kimmel's staff for months giving him talking points. armageddon against it so if you had any doubt whatsoever that there is collusion between the so-called mainstream media and liberals, there you have it for you. griff: the president is up. he is tweeting this morning. there is yet another tweet. the president tweeting just now i know rand paul and i think he may find a way to get there for the good of the party. that is quite astonishing. abby: interesting. you wonder if they have had
conversations behind closed doors. pete: they definitely have. abby: we have been sailing this morning every single vote matters 52 republicans and lost john mccain. waiting on susan collins veering no on this and murkowski from alaska and rand paul if he were to move to yes that could change the dynamic of this bill. pete: absolutely. this is the moment. this is what president trump understands. if you don't do it now before september 30th, you are probably not going to gets another bite at this apple. who knows what happens in the mid terms. maybe you increase seats and better opportunity. maybe you don't. if you don't pass this bill, the likely future for america is single payer healthcare. this is what bernie sanders is pushing and elizabeth warren and other democrats are talking about. it's the logical end state of obamacare. analysts, conservative analysts that have looked at this bill have said by block granting to the states you effectively end the liberals and democrats' ability to pursue single pair because you have lost control of a federal and national system. for conservatives, and republicans, that's it. this is what you want is power to the states as you said, and more free market
opportunities. you don't. the government telling you have to buy something which is the individual mandate. i know the president understands that urgency. you just don't understanding why someone like john mccain who used to be a maverick. was country first now is a democrat would step out and say, no, no, no. it feels more personal than it does feel policy, unfortunately for so many of us that have had respect for senator mccain for a long time. it feels like frustration and a personal angst. you don't wants that when the future of our healthcare is at stake. abby: he said he couldn't get there. pete: because of process. griff: what people care about that is football. and taking of a knee. collin kaepernick, that is a major thing the president talking about that last night. strong words for which we can't say on this air. but, that is going to be a big deal tomorrow. abby: it is. griff: you served and i have had the honor of covering a lot of troops and held marines, you know, watched
them hold dying marines in their arms. to dishonor is really touching. collin kaepernick might have a right to speak out but he has really ignited a lot of passions. people that have made the ultimate sacrifice in that story is not going away. abby: it's how do you it it's how you get that message out. as you said president trump was in alabama last night campaigning for luther strange there he took a turn and he went right after the nfl and this kneeling during the national anthem. had some very strock words. here is what he said. >> you know when the nfl ratings are down massively, massively, the nfl ratings are down massively. now, the number one reason happens to be that they like watching what's happening on, you negotiation with yours truly. because, you know, today if you hit too hard, right, they hit too hard, 15 yards, throw him out of the game. two guys just really beautiful tackle, boom, 15 yards, the referee gets

>> we can only win those fights and we can only drain the swamp if we have mart, tough, and tenacious leaders who know who they represent and they know how to deliver. abby: that was president trump last night in alabama not just looking to drain the swamp but reach across partisan lines to strike a deal with the democrats. griff: this as vice president mike pence hit the campaign trail to tout tax reform in indiana with hopes of gaining the support of democratic senator joe donnelly. could america be seeing the art of the deal at work? let's ask fox news contributor and fox news advisor for donald trump steve cortez. are we seeing something new? >> griff, i think we are. and by the way, this is the art of the deal. this is a negotiator in
chief as president. you know, i recall, i know you folks have been talking about football. i recall once tom brady's wife gazelle after receivers he can't throw the passes and catch them both. a similar analogy here politically. we have in donald trump an amazing quarterback. what we need now are some depend being receivers on capitol hill. quite frankly, on the republican side, we just haven't had that. we have been disappointed continually by republicans and their lack of leadership and inability despite having the majority to get things done, so what does s. our quarterback doing? is he finding other receivers who can catch the ball. if they are democrats, so be it. we have got to get tax reform over the goal line. abby: i love that story it rings true no matter what we are doing in life. negotiating gets us somewhere. recent poll when asking the american people say 71% working with democrats, they approve of this. ultimately, you get results. you look back at the ronald reagan days, steve, and many
republicans praise that time period and want to get back to that what he was known for is comprehensive tax reform working with tipp o'neal across the aisle to get things done. where have we lost sight that that is a good thing? >> abby, you are so correct. i think the american people care way more. even people pretty partisan like me care way more about results than we do about partisanship. it isn't a goal in and of itself. it's a mean means to get to a goal. we have to be results oriented. i would also point out that donald trump, while he is, of course, a republican in many ways he is a post partisan president. you know, the trump movement was not a highly partisan movement. we were as much against establishment republicans as we were against establishment democrats. so it's much more about president trump and the people against the washington establishment. than it is r vs. d. >> one last question for you here. obviously we are probably not going to see bipartisan on healthcare is tax reform
going to be the first piece of legislation under the trump administration that's going to get passed with bipartisan support? >> you know, i think it will be, yes. i do. and he has already shown the ability, by the way on hurricane harvey relief and immigration. he has shown the ability to reach across and reach deals or at least tentative deals with the democrats. i think the crown giuliani though of bipartisan will be tax reform. american people are dying for this. we have had a decade of slow growth. we have had no growth for working class people in this country. i believe that is the primary impetus for the entire trump movement. so we have to deliver. and the quickest way to deliver faster growth to the american people is simplify and cut taxes. we have to get this done. abby: that is so well said. steve, always great to have you on the show. great to see you this morning. >> thanks so much. abby: the family of aaron hernandez suing the nfl after the killer was found to have a severe case of degenerative brain disease. do they have a case? dr. baden here to discuss

fan. >> vikings representation in the tie. pete: there you go. nailed it let me ask you about president trump's comments you covered the nfl extensively. is this a viable function? do you see this as something happening in the nfl. >> fans have the opportunity to protest. we hear so much about protests. fans have an opportunity to protest by walking out of the stadium as president trump suggests that would be expensive protest. just player taking a knee and not saying anything to call his bank and say you know what? everything i'm protesting, i can't -- this is blood money, i can't take it i'm still waiting for a player to protest that. pete: just by quitting. >> protest by quitting or protest by calling his bank and don't accept this week's deposit for 900 grand because this means something to me. griff: could would he be looking though at a lawsuit? jerry jones, for example, dallas cowndz owner doesn't like it. glad none of his players have. if one did or any team for that matter, and the owner fired him, would be a first time lawsuit here. how is that going to play
out? >> see two issues for starters. legal matters and then obviously the fights against that and we note nfl's real big as we saw with tom brady and ezealial elliott back and forth. reaction from the public. just recently saw a rally, protest outside the nfl office as few weeks ago in an attempt to try to from my perspective bully the nfl into hiring collin kaepernick. that's what i saw. i think there would be push back from that. pete: that back fires as well. dr. baden we have to get your insight on another story. new report on aaron hernandez says the star had advanced stages of cte now the nfl is suing the nfl over those claims. you were one of those to examine aaron hernandez as well and i should disclose as well your wife is an attorney for his family as well. you took a look at aaron hernandez. what do you make of these developments? >> the brain shows that he had severe, what's called chronic traumatic encephalopathy, injuries due
to repeated blows to the head. this isn't new. you are too young to remember when i was a kid boxing was a big sport and it was known that 20ths, 30s, all time boxers became punch drunk. every time they being knocked out they have brain damage. so brain damage from head injuries have been well established. it's now been applied to football. where it's not intended to cause brain injury as in boxing, but that's a real issue. and the recent studies have shown that an awful lot of very great number of nfl football players have that condition. and remarkable thing with hernandez with a 27 at a very young age, he has very severe cte. and there is an issue with attorneys as to whether or not that could be a
mitigating factor in homicide charges. but, remember, the attorneys and hernandez have claimed that it was innocent. they didn't say he was -- there were reasons for -- for it. they say he just didn't do it and the second jury found that the first jury didn't. pete: they are suing the patriots in the nfl. where does this go? because he wouldn't be the only guy who has cte. >> not the only player who had cte or any stage three, pretty severe stage 1 to 4. he stopped playing when he was 23. it's a rough case when you are looking look and say wow there is a great need for compassion until you say wait a second this guy is accused of shooting five people and killing a few people as well. i think the term is get in line. because there are a lot of people who did not do that or accused of doing that he was only 23 when he retired and took those hits. great change takes time. 1938 is when reservers at john hopkins first found that smoking would shorten
your life. it wasn't until 1966 that we got warning labels on cigarette packs. we are just starting to discover certain information now. 2002 i believe is when dr. bennett first discovered cte in a football player in mike kenster former pittsburgh steeler, long time steeler center from. that point until now, we have come a far way. but maybe it might be 10, 15, 20 years before we could look back and on medical research maybe say okay, aaron hernandez, 90% probably killed oden because he had cte. we are a far ways from it. there are a lot more serious -- not more serious but a lot of other players involved in that who won't kill anybody. drnchts baden go back to you. boxing now with football. this is a 20-million-dollar lawsuit. it's going to set a precedent is it your sense medically that this is going to become a much larger issue? >> absolutely. a much larger issue because,
remember, hernandez was college football and pop warner, that families, a lot of families now are concerned about their kids playing football at an early stage. nfl is worried about that. from a medical point of view as a physician, there has got to be better protection for the kids and better ways of -- playing football so that there aren't head injuries. there are other injuries, too. the head injuries that are most significant. pete: we have to leave it right there. the nfl has the challenge of the fact that some fans are saying you are turning the flag into flag football all the flags on hits and what you can and cannot do. squeezed on both sides. >> i read a poll 34% of americans football fans less likely to watch because of protests. and you start throwing in all the seriousness. and they want to sue the nfl or the patriots. again, as dr. baden said what about these others? what about pop warner and college and his parents who
sent them out there. dr. bennett told me change will come from the courts when kids start suing parents for letting them play football. pete: dan bongino says john mccain is a sell out for announcing he will vote against the graham-cassidy bill. he jointsdz us live next. pete: some say sean spicer's emmy cameo was a hit. one says there was nothing funny about it. marie callender's turkey pot pie starts with turkey covered in a rich, flavorful gravy. and a crust made from scratch. because she knows that when it's cold outside,

preservision areds 2. because my eyes are everything. so this morning we saw tweets this morning about senator job mccain who declared is he coming out against the bill. rand paul this morning is on the fence he thinks he may come back in the fold. lisa murkowski. three seats there. another face on that picture one in the red lisa murkowski and on the left is susan collins. abby: waiting on a tweet on susan collins in a moment. this is interesting, he has tweeted out this morning saying he knows rand paul and thinks he can get there. we don't know where that's coming from.
if they have maybe had conversations behind closed doors or is he trying to convince him via twitter to move on this bill to vote yes on it the reason why it is so important is every vote matters. pete: rand paul voted yes on the skinny bill. agitating against it for a along time. he ultimately was a yes. it was murkowski, collins, and mccain. so if can he keep rand paul and pick up one of the two others, putting pressure on them then you get to that 50. griff griff we have to ask our next guest dan bongino. rand paul said he was a no on this out of the gate because it doesn't go far enough to repeal. so therein lies the problem. pete: that's right. we will bring in former nypd officer and host of the renegade republican dan bongino. i assume you don't have any thoughts about republicans caving on obamacare repeal and replace? >> i was like bursting at the seems to get o seams to get. abby: we didn't need to introduce you. just let you go. >> let me go. come in cold like "saturday
night live." what's really upsetting about this whole thing, i get rand paul. i know rand paul personally. he is a principled guy. is he standing on principle. he always has. i have a lot of respect for rand paul. now, john mccain's case, with all due respect to his health condition and i mean that he has my sympathies and my prayers. he is really going through an awful situation. this is a very serious matter. and who would have ever thought, guys, and ladies, that the survival of obamacare was more dependent on the re-election of john mccain rather than the re-election of barack obama? how many times is this guy going to rescue obamacare from the abyss? this was not a perfect bill, graham-cassidy, we get that the republican replacement. it had its problems. but it was much better than the catastrophic healthcare situation we have now. john mccain sold us all out. i'm still wondering why he claims to be a republican senator despite being the democrats' best friend right now. abby: dan, do you think he has a point though john mccain when he says the reason i can't get behind this is part of it is all
down party lines and that is what republicans had a big issue with obamacare. that former president barack obama shoved this down everyone's throats and the democrats were the only ones on board that were able to actually get this through. most of them didn't even read that bill. do you think he has a point there and we should get more voices and should be some bipartisan evident when it comes to healthcare? >> you know, i would think he had a point if it wasn't a solution searching for a problem. in other words, mccain is looking for a reason at this point to vote against the bill and that is his reason dda de jour. i wondered if he lobbied own solution obamacare, own people nancy pelosi most prominent voice says we will pass it first and figure out what's in it later on. john mccain ran on tape, on video everywhere. on repealing obamacare. he has rescued this thing twice. at what point does the g.o.p. say listen, you're not a member of our party anymore. again, with all due respect
to your service and your poor health condition you have our sympathies. you need to go find a new political party because you can't take any more of our donor money or activist's time. we are tired of getting you elected and working for the democrats. this is really disturbing. glitch griff dan, let me ask you about jimmy kimmel weighing in on this thank you at senator john mccain for being a hero again and again and now again. what do you make of kimmel getting in this? abby: and chuck schumer giving him talking points for it sounds like weeks now. >> yeah. and i have been very deferential to jimmy kimmel as well. because, you know, is he going through an awful situation with his child. and i wouldn't wish that on literally my worst enemy. that's a horrible thing. but, jimmy kimmel has to be responds cybil. have you platform. jimmy kimmel has a platform. they are both equally large for you to use a platform in jimmy kimmel's case to bullet points from chuck schumer's office is really irresponsible. i mean, there are people out
there who trust jimmy kimmel and he is telling them things that are just incorrect. he is not giving them the other side of the story. and they're making really poor decisions based on really bad information from a late night talk show host. it doesn't make him a bad guy. it makes him really irresponsible for doing that. abby: he has every right to tell the story. and healthcare when it comes from personal angle. bring on bill cassidy again. have that debate. give your audience both sides of what's going on. that's the only way to move on in a healthy way in this country. pete: dan, typically, of course, it becomes impugning the motives of others. jimmy kimmel has to make fun or attack the people behind the if they are bad people as opposed to understanding the fact there that there might be two different sides how we best deliver healthcare including those with preexisting conditions. he is not capable of having that policy debate like a lot of liberals so they attack people. >> that strategy worked really well for hillary clinton, remember the deplorable strategy? that was golden. people love being called racist, deplorables, imbreds
somebody called bill cassidy recently. really atrocious labels to put on people. pro-tip, guys, that strategy really doesn't work. let's try a more reasonable approach to this. that's not going to get you anywhere. abby: hillary clinton stood by that recent interviews book. she was asked about deplorable comment and she doubled down. >> because she meant it. i'm not surprise she'd actually meant it that's the new democrat policy. everybody who disagrees with you is an evil person. they don't just have evil policies they are evil people. griff: you have new book inside account secret service. involving era of evil threats. what's in that book? why do we got to read that book, dan? >> someone has to save the secret service, guys, before someone gets hurt. the secret service is in the middle of a collapse right now. when i got on the job in 1999. it was one of the highest morale agencies to work for in the federal government. do you know where they're now? they are 304 out of 305. and i promise you all, when
you read the inside account of what happened, and how this agency collapsed, you are going to be astonished. it's not the agents. the rank and file mental and women are doing a great job. really horrible politicians and managers. hillary clinton included in some cases who ruined that place. and it needs to be fixed before someone gets hurt. and this is my paul revere moment out there. pete: we want you to set book. i'm sure it's fantastic. we don't have any more time. inside account. if you like what he said on the air now you will like what he has in the book. >> i will be reading that book. >> you guys are the best. >> thank you. president trump calls on north korean dictator kim jong un. calls him a mad man. but what makes the rogue leader so dangerous? what can be done to stop him? virginia congressman and former navy seal scott taylor here to discuss it just ahead. pete: we have the untold story of the biggest white house scandal since

plane, we are going to texas where they have the hurricane. and she leaves the plane and she is dressed appropriately for the white house. you know, because we respect the white house, a lot. and she is wearing high heels like many of would do. they went after her when she got out of the plane on texas she was wearing sneakers which she had with her. they said she wore high heels she is going to go into the floods with the high heels. abby: the fact that he even has to address this just says it all, i think. you know, he has to give their side of the story because they there was such a focus on this you will remember. there was all this hubbub when they went on the ground in galveston and rockport and she was wearing her still let those and went to houston a few days later and she went on the plane in snake skin stilettos which many people loved because she was doubling down. she had her tennis shoes on. regardless of what she wears should never be the focus. on the ground there hugging
people, trying to help people emotionally through. this you were on the ground. that was the focus for many wearing stilettos has to make you cringe. >> it's crazy. what's even more interesting is the president talks about these things that bothers him. he sounds off on it and my colleagues in the media and washington, d.c. will spend all day and all weekend trying to figure out what to say about this and what this means. the president upset about it. pete: trips so successful in dealing with that the press are had to talk about something else. the press doesn't want to talk about the good things the president does. answer is the obvious one. she is the first lady. she respects the white house, she wears heels in the white house when she walks to marine one. obvious and easy. if that there were a democrat in the white house that's how the press would explain it away. no, she is wearing high heels. abby: some media outletst saying she has the worst fashion in the white house. you can't win. well, i did think it was important for him to address that last night. i hope the media can focus on things that matter and not just optics every single

email@example.com how is griff doing? griff: firstname.lastname@example.org stay really well. abby: someone tweeted me and said this is the first time i have not seen griff knee high in water. nice to see him dry. griff: yes. my feet is dry. it is an honor to be on the curvey couch. i will say as i said earlier much more comfort in 100 mile-per-hour wind and riots but you guys make it easy. pete: it's awesome to have you. you have a background in d.c. you understanding politics the swamp and what is happening. great insight from griff. appreciate having him. the president as you said, abby was in huntsville, alabama tuesday's special election luther strange be on the program at 9:00. stick around for that he is running with roy moore with roy moore running 8 points ahead in the real clear politics average. abby: he was down. it has gotten closer. interesting to watch how this all shakes out. a big topic was healthcare last night. and it broke yesterday afternoon that john mccain, remember, every vote matters because there is 52 republican notice senate. they need 50 to get this one
through. john mccain said yesterday he is not putting his support behind this bill. as can you imagine the president not happy about that. had some words last night in alabama alabama here he is. >> now, john mccain's list. [crowd booing. john mccain was not on the list. so that was a totally unexpected thing. terrible. honestly terrible. repeal and replace. because john mccain, if you look at his campaign, his last campaign was all about repeal and replace. repeal and replace. so he decided to do something different. and that's fine. and i say we still have a chance -- oh, we're going to do it eventually. we're going to do it eventually. pete: the reason is he talking about healthcare, of course, at a campaign rally is it coming down to the critical moment september 30th is when this bill either happens or doesn't happen. is he also up early this morning tweeting on the same subject, the president is john mccain. he tweeted this 6:42 a.m. this morning. john mccain never had any
intention of voting for this bill which his governor loves. he campaigned on repeal and replace. is he letting arizona down. is he referring to governor doocy who didn't support the skinny bill but did support this one. he thought that might bring mccain on board but unfortunately it did not. abby: 52 republicans. don't have john mccain. so now we are waiting or murkowski, collins and maybe rand paul. we will see where that goes. the president tweeting to murkowski saying alaska had 200 percent plus increase in premiums under obamacare. worse in the country. deductibles are high. people are angry. lisa murkowski come through. obviously really sending a clear message this morning. also one about rand paul. >> listen, i spend a lot of time in washington and as i mentioned, they have a math problem. pete: look on the screen right there you see three seats they need three seats to on board. griff: rand paul first out of the gate to say no.
proving not so much an obstructionist but principled guy. while it is a feet from the presidenten couraging senator paul i don't think that's likely to come. murkowski and collins, coverage big point for collins. step back for a second. this is how the american people view. this this is an easy deal. have you the white house. you have the senate, and you have the house. yet they can't do it. pete: they campaigned on it for seven years. >> campaigned on it. it was a signature issue for this president for the republican party. even before donald trump was in this. and now, you're about to cross the threshold on september 30th where they have to have 60 votes. instead of 50 and have vice president pence break the tie. so this problems that going to be perceived by the american people. aside from our doing the votes. and counting the hezbollah and whether the president, who is all-in trying to stop this from happening, i think he understands how the american people are going to view. this and you know what? everybody is going to take the blame.
the president is saying he this is not over yet. is he convinced that he can get rand paul over to that side. he says i know rand paul. this is what he tweeted this morning. i know rand paul. i think he may find a way to get there for the good of the party. as you said, griff, he knows how important this is for the country. how important this is for the president. but also for republicans. because they have been campaigning on this for seven frickin' years. if they can't get this done. pete: well said. abby: i'm not sure there is going to be another chance. pete: how do you go back to constituents and say send me back to the swamp when i am the swamp. we have the majority and can't pass it. pete: you have the president with luther strange. you have the freedom caucus and steve bannon and others on the side of roy moore. is he running against mitch mcconnell. that they feel like he has been ineffective. this is mitch mcconnell's last chance in my opinion. if you can't bring your caucus together. if he can get rand paul on because rand paul voted for the skinny bill.
then you just need lisa murkowski or susan collins. look for pressure on john mccain. get enough pressure. you could still get to 50. this bill ♪ dead. this is the moment. if you want to stop single pair this is republican's moment. you let this pass and no ho knows where healthcare goes. >goes. griff: fair criticism on leader mcconnell to have not sold it as this crisis that it's goings to become if they don't get it done here. abby: you are exactly right. this is handled much differently than the last one the skinny bill. he said he is not going to bring it to the bill unless they know for sure that they have the votes to get it passed. so they have been a lot more quiet. you haven't seen the friction inside the republican party on this one as publicly as the last one. pete: i hope there is friction behind the scenes where we are new yorking political skulls to say hey, there will be consequence fuss don't vote with the leader here and with the president of the united states. think of susan collins and lisa murkowski, we will see. facing head winds in the media. the media no friend of republicans unless republicans cross the aisle to putter republicans like
senator john mccain did. so jimmy kimmel who has been in a feud over this bill because of his son and understandable personal take on this issue tweeted this yesterday after senator mccain came out against the bill. he said thank you senator john mccain for being a hero again and again and now again. of course, that tweet would have said something very differently had john mccain decided to go the other way. abby: jimmy kimmel has been very advisory call about this issue the past week. he has his own personal story with his child who has some heart problems. he has every right. he all part of a conversation how we move forward with healthcare. partly of that is both sides and showing the american people where you are coming from. now come out through the dale buy beast foreclosure weeks given talking points. you should go to congress to get a sense of where he are coming from. but, we haven't yet heard from the show that they have heard from the other side from cassidy and lindsey graham the sponsors of this
bill just to provide full context of where they are coming from and why they are backing this bill and why they think it's best for the country. pete: daily beast reports conversations staff. griff: if that's the case and american people bipartisan where is chuck schumer's bill? where is his idea? give block grants to the state? what is he going to put forth? >> he wants republicans to implode. pete: you want them to get input from conservatives. full of liberals crawling everywhere. they don't want republican and conservative ideas. they want to find ways to resist and defeat republicans. uforts reality this president has exposed through talking about fake news and others. more fake news some of the criticism you get from jimmy kimmel. abby: also why president trump goes out on the stump. because he feels like that and he tweets. that is his voice. that is the only way he can get his side of the story out. that's why last night you heard him talking about his wife melania and addressing the stil stiletto gate
controversy and talking about the nfl last night which surprised everybody, right? we have been talking on the show a lot about kaepernick and other players and kneeling during the national anthem. this is obviously an issue that the president is very passionate about. he had some very strong words last night for the nfl and anyone who decides to neikneel during the national anthem. >> when the nfl ratings are down maskly, marvly, the nfl rating are down massively. the number one issue is because they like to watch what's happening on -- you know, with yours truly. today, if you hit too hard, right? they hit too hard? 15 yards, throw him out of the game. two guys just really beautiful tackle, boom, 15 yards. the referee gets on television. his wife is sitting at home. she is so proud of him. they are ruining the game. right? you do you know what's hurting the game more than that? when people like yourselves
turn on the television and see those people taking the knee when they are playing our great national anthem. luther and i and everyone in this arena tonight are unified by the same great american values. we're proud of our country. we respect our flag. wouldn't you love to see one of these nfl owners when somebody disrespects our flag to say get that son of a [bleep] off the field right now. out. he's fired. [cheers and applause] he's fired! [chanting u.s.a. [? >>chanting u.s.a.]griff griff ta passionate issue. you have been to afghanistan. i would suggest let's send collin kaepernick to afghanistan with some of those troops that surged and let him see what happens. let him see why this is so important to some people and see what he has to say. pete: it would bring a whole another perspective to that issue for sure. the president speaking to loot of people fed up with the nfl. their ratings have gone down. he cited two reasons.
one they are not standing up for the anthem and owners should do it. they tell them how to wear their socks but not stand up for the anthem. two. soft. can't watch carnage which is what i want to watch. they are playing million dollars. can't hit each other anymore. that's why they are going down. he understands the pulse of their country wants to be a fan and love their country. abby: go mentor young kids coming up in this country. you make such a good point though about our military. i have two brothers in the navy as you know. they are so proud of this flag. and because they know the sacrifice that everybody makes that fights for this country. and what that flag, what the national anthem, what it means so this country. so there are so many ways to get your message out there. disrespecting the national anthem is not one of them. >> fighting for the right of those players to take a knee. pete: when do you come up from the knee.
grievance against america people are fed up with it. abby: let us know your comments at email@example.com. they have been pouring in. we will read them later on in the show so keep them coming. pete: move over donald and hillary, putin has a new target and it's morgan freeman. abby: no matter how much you hate or love the president have you got to agree with this. >> we can't have mad men out there shooting rockets all over the place. so how d. abby: so how do we stop kim jong un aka little rocket man. scott tailor is in the house this morning to discuss next. ♪ rocket man ♪ and i think it's going

>> we can't have mad men out there shooting rockets all over the place. >> he may be totally crazy, but you know what? no matter what he is, we're going to handle it folks, believe me. griff: president continuing harsh words about korean leader kim jong un what makes the leader such a mad man? abby: since taking power in 2011 he has executed 342 people. killed multiple government officials including his own uncle by firing squad and firing anti--aircraft guns runs forced labor camps where 40% of prisoners die from malnutrition. pete: he also let them stay mal-nourished and increase efforts to keep people from escaping his hermit kingdom. what can be done to stop him? joining us now to weigh in is virginia congressman scott taylor and former navy seal as well, scott. thanks for being here. >> great to be with you
guys. pete piatt you are looking at this president he has under the rhetoric at the u.n. talking about little rocket man and destroy them if necessary. are they taking the right approach and what more should be done? >> a lot of concentration goes on the president's rhetoric as well as kim's as well. but the reality is there is a lot of other things happening behind the scenes in this administration also. when you look at the last 25, 30 years. the guy pops up kind of like a zit every once in a while and give him concessions. that's changed now. this president and this administration think they have tightened the screws on him and gotten china tout table. basically ships that went there, of course. they talked about trade with china to get china who has 90% of the trade with north korea to the table. china has publicly denounced them. they supported two u.n. resolutions, of course. and they have talked about. they stopped imports of coal. unlike before this administration has gotten one of the key players, china, to the table to help us out. i think that china and russia and others were perfectly comfortable prior to have north korea be anage territory to us.
of course the missiles are shooting to the east. not to the west. they didn't care. that's changing in this administration. not only rhetoric but tangible steps to ching the dynamic there. abby: there is a reason why you look back to george h.w. bush, when you lay out all the options on the table in dealing with north korea. there aren't many and there aren't many good ones. no one really wants to go to war with north korea. that would be a disaster for everybody, including china. that is the last thing they want. do you think that north korea and china, do they think of donald trump differently than other leaders in the past? do they take him more seriously, given the rhetoric that he has shown us? >> well, two things, first of all, i have the great honor of representing a district that if something happens in the world, our people are there. because we have a huge military concentration. no one wants war. it's the last thing that i any we should obviously want at all. it would be catastrophic losses if that happens there. i think that china doesn't understand or how to read president trump. you know, china usually takes the long-term approach. i don't think they understand how to read the president. that can be good and bad
obviously. i think they are nervous. and, like i said, you have seen them step up like never before under this administration. yes, china's red line, of course is, they don't want to destabilize korean peninsula. they have a huge refugee crisis, of course. but the redder line for china which i think this president has touched and tapped is trade with china and relationship with us. griff: congressman, just a quick follow up. abby has said going all the way back to george w. bush. fired more missiles and threatened allies in more ways than his father and grandfather. have you got to be looking as a former navy seal what can we do militarily? >> i think there has to be two pronged approach if you will. yes, this leader unlike his father has really aggressively pushed this year trying to get these capabilities. i think we have plenty of military options. none of them are good. none of them are good. it's going to be bad. you have cyber. have you other hard military things. diplomacy has to be there as well, too. i think after the congress -- people's congress in october, the president should go to china
and show a symbol there, diplomatic sim poll and looking at shooting down missiles. abby: that could be powerful. pete: we have to leave this there unfortunately. abby: thanks for being with us. pete: more "fox & friends" on the other side. copd makes it hard to breathe. so to breathe better, i go with anoro. ♪go your own way copd tries to say, "go this way." i say, "i'll go my own way" with anoro. ♪go your own way once-daily anoro contains two medicines called bronchodilators, that work together to significantly improve lung function all day and all night. anoro is not for asthma . it contains a type of medicine that increases risk of death in people with asthma. the risk is unknown in copd. anoro won't replace rescue inhalers for sudden symptoms

nothing spectacular. i was a tank crewman on the abrams tank. yeah. that's about it. pete: did you your part just like so many have. when you came home, one of the men that you served with took his life and you decided to take action. tell us what happened. >> that is correct. about five years ago my best friend took his life and his wife called me and said that they could not afford a funeral. they were already living paycheck to paycheck. and the v.a. only gives $300 for burial benefits. so the body was going to go unclaimed and be put into a baggy. and we decided, my family and my friends we went into debt to pay for the funeral. thinking it was a one-time deal we didn't realize we always thought that there were some people out there helping with the expenses. and when i found out that not one veteran organization's sole purpose is to provide financial assistance that's how dog tag got started. pete: i wear a ring on my finger that reminds me every
day that 22 veterans in this country commit suicide. it's a real problem and epidemic. it happened once. other families came towel and said we need help. we have lost another one. you decided i have got to do something to decide how to pay for this because i can't keep going into debt. >> i couldn't keep going into debt. what better way to sell something to pay for a veterans' funeral than a flag. and i wanted everyone to hang the flag in their room. i send a flag to the family with all the people who helped donated to that flag and to donate to that funeral. yeah. abby: and they are beautiful. >> thank you. abby: we them here in our studio. people watching who want to help out, want to own one of these flags where can they go and help out? >> they can go to dog tag furniture.com. they can go to facebook.com. back/dog tag furniture. all my information is up there. please, we're looking for sponsors. we are looking for buyers. and we are looking for general donations typical. pete: troy, i don't want to cut you off but i have got

corey lewandowski this morning. action pac and former donald trump campaign manager. co, thanks for joining us this morning. abby: where are you, corey? >> i'm in the swamp today, unfortunately, trying to get out. so, please, please, as soon as i'm done i'm getting out of the swamp. pete: helping you get out of the swamp virtually for a few minutes. you saw the speech last night he slammed senator mccain for that decision. was this a surprise for the white house? did they hope to have his vote. >> well, of course the white house wants all of the votes that they can get on the healthcare bill because this is something that the president pledged during the campaign was to repeal and replace obamacare. we saw that the governor of arizona has come out in support of the bill. and that john mccain specifically, when he ran for re-election last year went out and campaigned on the fact that the obamacare bill was a disaster, premiums are up 116% in arizona. and now, on two separate occasions, john mccain had the opportunity to repeal and replace obamacare, and has not done that. which has been, you know, a lie to the people of arizona when he said that's what he is going to do when he came
back to washington. abby: sounds like the president doesn't think this is over yet. even though i think the votes as you know are so crucial here and still waiting on susan collins and murkowski. says he knows rand paul and trying to convince him thinking he could come back again to a yes vote. what do you think is going on behind closed doors? is this just a president trying to convince him via twitter or do you think they have had some conversations? >> i'm certain the president and senator paul have spoken about the legislation. i'm sure that the president's team is making sure that they understand exactly what the senators' concerns are about the piece of legislation. the same is true with senator collins. i'm certain of it. look, the president is a great dealmaker. he is the greatest closer. what we are going to do is find a way to bring these people together because it's the right thing to do for the american people. if not, obamacare collapses and people go without healthcare. that's the problem. and senator paul knows that senator collins knows it. senator murkowski. you need to find a way to get to yes.
pete: why wouldn't rand paul be there. he voted for the skinny bill which people think is weaker than this one. >> i don't speak for senator paul. i think his main objection is the notion of federal inch, which is giving the states the opportunity to control healthcare at their level is important. but that also means the states should be raising the money for the healthcare bill from their own respective state. and so, you know, the senator, you know, is a person who believes in states rights a lot. wants to make sure if we are going to give that control back the states have that responsibility. griff: hey, corey, griff here. i went down to the u.n. and asked the president did your former boss. how what did you make of his speech to the u.n.' and what did you make of reports that he was specifically advised not to go after kim jong un by name called him rocket man and that's the headline. abby: still did last night in alabama. >> i had a four word term on the campaign let trump be trump. that's what the american people want and that's what they expect and that's what he should be. the president went to the united nations and he made a bold speech that netanyahu
said was probably, you know, the greatest speech that has been given at the u.n. in the last 30 years. the reason for that is for the first time the american president is out telling the world exactly the things -- the way that things have to be done for the united states. we can't continue to pay 22% of the dues to the united nations for 193 countries that don't pay their fair share. it's time we hold people accountable and nations accountable. we have to have the collective effort of china and russia to ensure that a mad man in north korea doesn't promulgate nuclear weapons. that's something we have to do and the president has called on the world to make sure that happens. pete: you talked about holding people accountable. also last night in alabama the president talked about owners in the nfl holding players' accountable for the fact they are taking a knee. he spoke passionately about it we know is he a football fan himself. what brought him to the point enough of this kneeling stuff and the owners should be on the hook as well for what players are doing? >> well, look, you know this. you have to respect our flag. too many people, my family,
you as a veteran, you know, have fought for our opportunity to have that great american flag and died for it on many occasions. and this notion that you are a professional athlete and you can't have the decency to stand and put your hand on your heart and listen to what is so patriotic to so many people. you know, it's deplorable. and what the president said was look, try that with jerry jones. i think you try that with bob craft. you see what happens if you do that hopefully those players don't work anymore. my boy plays flag football. i couldn't imagine what would happen if he decided to take a knee when they played the national anthem. it would be incomprehensible to me. that's what those professional athletes are doing. they are instilling these values of non-patriotic values into our children. kids look up to these athletes. they want to be them. they emulate them. what we see is they don't season have the decency to stand for our great country and what it means. it's a terrible disaster. abby: if we cannot respect the flag and the national anthem what do we stand for as a country? that is so well said and so

meddling. whether it was some aggressive people from the islands of fujitay that were meddling. people were meddling. and people can, as facebook stands today, they have created a social network that let's me, you, griff, whoever have a stronger, bigger voice if you want to plunk down a credit card. pete: you said facebook so far -- they have seen themselves as infrastructure for conversations not determining which ones -- well, they can put their finger on algorithm if you pay more you can be heard more. >> they can. you remember we go back a couple years ago and we started questioning mark zuckerberg the ceo of facebook is this kind of fair and is there influence there? we are not a media company. we have nothing to do with this. this is just a platform. slowly but surely he has come around. it becomes irrefutable that there is real connection that needs to happen there. the oversight that facebook is doing on their own really hasn't cut the mustard. why did any of us care about
this? because it doesn't matter what party you are in. no matter what, a facebook does not correct itself or we don't find the oversight to correct facebook. 2020 is going to look like a mess when it comes to the election. because it can be bought. the influence can be bought on facebook. period. and that is a huge, huge problem. abby: this is going to continue on. i have no doubt. griff: poll members what are they saying? >> cnn did a poll yesterday and so far 43% of people surveyed say that it's not likely that the russians had any influence on social media. despite the fact that intelligence community 100 percent agrees that it is and that 54% think that it is. i don't want to you pay attention to this data too much. do you know why? it's all party lines. it's all on party lines, the methodology actually. you want to joke about that methodology is actually pretty solid on it when we look into it. the fact is people aren't

going to vote yes for this will and every vote matters so the president was in alabama and he had some as you can imagine thoughts on how that's going on and senator john mccain here is what he said. >> president trump: now john mccain's list, john mccain was not on the list so that was a totally unexpected thing, terrible. honestly, terrible. repeal and replace, because john mccain if you look at his campaign, his last campaign it was all about repeal and replace repeal and replace, so he decided to do something different and that's fine. and i say we still have a chance that oh, we're going to do it eventually. >> griff: that is just to list the name john mccain illicits booze from the grassroots this is a guy who ran at the republican standard in 2008 doing the work of democrats and could put the nail in the coffin of the repeal and replace bill
that he ran on as a senator saying this is something i want to do and he says he's going to vote against it. >> pete: he's saying listen i'm opposed to this because i want regular order so that essentially means i want to go back to 60 votes which is coming up september 30 and the ability for democrats to filibuster dead in the water. the president tweeting to rand paul maybe you'll come around. clearly mccain is going to be firm. now, this is a math problem. now if that happens in where they are against it rand paul has one last chance before this really becomes unattainable to be the saviour, we'll see if he is inclined. >> abby: the president knows how serious this is for the american people so that he come pained on very strongly so he's been up tweeting as much as he can on this morning tweeting directly about john mccain and he says john mccain never had any intention of voting for this will which his governor loves. he campaigned on repeal and replace let arizona down and also tweeting in alaska saying
alaska had a 200% plus increase in premiums under obamacare. worst in the country. deductibles high, people angry, lisa murkowski come through off the one on rand paul. >> griff: he tweeted this i know rand paul and he may find a way to get there for the good of the party coming from experience because rand paul did vote for the skinny bill that went down. this will is stronger. rand paul has concerned but he believes hopefully a guy will come around and say iran on repeal and replace too. this isn't perfect but gets us a long way down the road and it is a now or never moment if you don't want single payer healthcare this is a republicans chance otherwise you don't deliver on a campaign promise and keep it a federal issue and democrats go for singer payer. you'll see what bernie wants. you see what elizabeth warren wants. they want medicare for all single payer. if they don't send it back to the states which this will does, this graham cassidy bill send the decision-making back to the states it is a one way ticket to single payer and that's what susan collins and john mccain
and rand paul need to know that's what they're voting for with chuck schumer if they oppose it. >> abby: can we pull that graphic back up because i want to give our viewers a sense of how close this vote is. there are 52 republicans in the senate and for this to pass you need 50 to vote yes so as of now john mccain said no so the reason we have those three boxes lit up right there, you have susan collins of maine, you have murkowski of alaska and finally rand paul and the reason rand paul was there was because we read that tweet from president trump saying he knows rand paul and thinks he could get him on board so if you listen to the president this morning he doesn't think this fight is over yet and if it is, if it doesn't work out, griff as you know this could be their very last attempt >> griff: that's right. they talk about dramatically this is truly the last chance and it will be fascinating when we talk to senator luther strange because if the senator of that race is mitch mcconnell, where is mitch mcconnell leader mcconnell on this healthcare
last stop? >> pete: you want somebody, it's much m. he has one chance to show he's a majority leader. this is the moment and are going to put the screws to collins, real punishment. lose a committee assignment something like that if you are going to if they are going to vote against the bill at some point it comes down to brass tax and conservatives don't want to hear regular order that is a typical swamp excuse from john mccain. you've had seven years you know where you stand. >> abby: now they have until september 30 is the deadline for this will so keep a close eye on that. we'll see what happens but last night as we've been talking about president trump was in alabama states that he won overwhelmingly in the election i think it was 62% very much in his comfort zone talking to his base for luther strange who we will have on in a few minutes so don't miss that but talking about a number of issues one of them many people did not expect he would bring up he talked about the nfl something he's very passionate about and kneeling during the national anthem which he has zero respect for. >> pete: he's seeing same thing we're seeing which is kids
watching athletes sit during the flag and replicate it. this is a culture problem. you have to love your country, be intentional about it and have patriotism. he talked about it last night and did not mince any words in saying so so listen to the president. >> president trump: you know when the nfl ratings are down massively, massively, now the number one reason happens to be they like watching what's happening on with yours truly because you know today if you hit too hard, if you hit too hard, 15-yards throw him out of the game. two guys just really beautiful tackle, boom 15-yards. the referee gets on television and his wife is sitting at home she's so proud of him. they're ruining the game. >> [applause] >> president trump: do you know what's hurting the game more than that? when people like yourselves turn on television and you see those people taking the knee when they're playing our great national anthem. luther and i and everyone in
this arena tonight are unified by the same great american values. we're proud of our country. we respect our flag. wouldn't you love to see one of these nfl owners when somebody disrespects our flag? to say get that off the field right now. >> [applause] >> president trump: out, he's fired. >> [applause] >> president trump: he's fired. >> usa. usa. usa.

the wrong path and he's created a real debate in this country. he should see for himself what's at stake. >> abby: that's a great point and understand exactly what the flag means for this country and sacrifice so many of our brave men and women are making every day to fight for our freedom and for their ability to play on that field and to stand for that national anthem. >> pete: we got a statement from the nfl player's association. it says whether or not nfl commissioner and the owners will speak for themselves about their views on player rights and their commitment to player safety remains to be seen so that in my estimation that's a statement they're waiting to see if anyone actually follows through. they are going to side with the players but ultimately the players work for the coaches who work for the managers who work for the owners and if the owner says stand up you play a game for a living and i pay your salary they have that perogative in the united states of america. just like they have the perogative to kneel but you and i could lose our job for not standing for the anthem too because you work for a private corporation. same thing with the nfl. >> abby: well it is a passionate one. you all been sending us your
thoughts so keep them coming. we want to hear from you. >> griff: well president trump giving alabama senator luther strange a ringing endorsement. >> president trump: i've seen him. he's tough as hell. luther is your man. luther strange is determined to drain that swamp. >> pete: senator strange reacts to all of that support live, next. >> griff: former fbi director james comey gets a rude college welcome from black lives matter. 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. can we at least analyze can we push the offer online? legacy technology can handcuff any company.

luther strange is determined to drain that swamp. >> pete: president trump in campaign mode stomping for alabama senator luther strange. >> abby: joining us now is senator luther strange of alabama. i know it was a big night last night. >> senator: it was a fantastic night. the packed house in huntsville, alabama, the welcome of the president back to alabama and i could not be more grateful for his friendship first of all and for the time he took out of an unbelievably busy schedule to come to alabama and talk about why he wants me to join him in washington to brain swamp and get his agenda passed. >> abby: what do you say to critics who say you are part of that swamp you are mitch mcconnell's guy, you are exactly what we don't need in washington you've heard from a lot of critics many folks on the right side, people that have supported trump who are now for roy moore your opponent whose now ahead by eight points i think in real clear politics what do you say to the critics? >> senator: oh, i think the president said it better than anyone. he pointed out i just met mitch mcconnell a few months ago.
i've been in washington less time than donald trump has. this is an agenda and the president said it flat out. i'm being saddled with mitch mcconnell because there's a lot of people that have an agenda against him and they will try and use me as some sort of a symbol of that, but i'm the newest person to be in washington and i've got the record of draining the swamp taking on the establishment, so i'm sticking with the president and i'm so glad he stuck with me last night. i think it's going to make all of the difference in this race. >> pete: senator if this healthcare bill repeal and replace does not pass, would you have faith in mitch mcconnell continuing as senate majority leader with now twice the bill going down and the inability to bring his caucus around if it didn't pass would you have confidence in him? >> senator: well i've said all along that if we don't get things progressing in washington , we will look at every option whether we need new leadership whether we need a new approach. i talked to the president about that. we've got to get things done the frustration level is through the
roof and i'm the most frustrated person out there believe me. >> griff: senator griff here i want to ask you how confident are you that you can close what is now an eight point gap in the poll and what does it say that at this critical juncture as pete talks about health care, tax reform is up next that we're having a primary playout where members of presidents former staff supporting your opponent judge roy moore? >> senator: well i made a joke in the debate the other night. seems like a lot of my opponents come from the white house unemployment line. there is other agendas out there that are national. i'm new to the national scene. i think i've become sort of a proxy for other people's agendas this race will turn out i'm confident it will turn on the turnout. who gets their voters out to the polls? people of alabama love the president. i think his strong statement and support of me last night will sort of remove these outside agendas and get people focused on who they want in washington and i feel great. >> pete: well there's no doubt
senator the president's support has shown a hidden base of support that makes made a lot of polls and pollsters wrong but you talk about the white house unemployment line referring to steve bannon, some who conservatives who have left this white house and now support your opponent roy moore as well as sarah palin, mark meadows, the chairman of the freedom caucus, ben carson, because you're conservative and so is roy moore why have these decided to line up behind him. do they feel like he's more of an outsider? >> senator: no, i think it's all about much m and the national agenda, power between competing groups and it's kind of like actual i had a conservative leader say look this has nothing to do with you. it's all about mitch mcconnell and what my grandmother would say a classic example of cutting off your nose despite your face. i've got the most conservative record of accomplishment as the president repeated time and again last night that's what's so ironic about this. my opponent would ultimately be an obstructionist and not advance the president's agenda.
>> abby: i'd love to hear your side of the story because one of the light hearted moments last night the president was telling people how you met, why he is supporting you and why he calls you what is it big luther strange because you're so tall and he told us about how when he was asking for your support for him and the healthcare bill you said you weren't convinced yet but you wanted him to take all of the members of your family out to breakfast to lunch to dinner on a picnic and later you said you would support him either way. what is your side of that story? >> senator: well, it seems like everybody that he talked to asked him for something. they wanted to go somewhere or have tickets or see a movie at the white house. he called me and i said mr. president i'm with you. you don't need to give me anything. i'm not asking for anything. and he said that's the first time that's ever happened to me. everybody always wants something from me and this got so cool he doesn't want anything. just to do the right thing and support what we're trying to do in washington so we hit it off and this is based on our sharing the same views on the issues but also a personal friendship and i
can't thank the president enough >> pete: it's a big election we're going to be watching tuesday, two conservatives going at it and you're rightist a referendum on the senate majority leader mitch mcconnell. senator luther strange thank you very much. >> abby: great to have you with us good luck. >> senator: thanks guys. >> abby: nba all-star steven curry said he would skip his teams post championship trip to the white house but if that sounds controversial wait until you hear what the president just did in response. >> pete: and stunning new reports say former u.s. ambassador samantha power wanted to unmask americans on an almost daily basis. is the so-called mainstream media overlooking a major hurdle we're going to debate it next.

>> abby: we are back with quick headlines starting with a fox news alert an earthquake spark ing fears of another nuclear test in north korea. according to that country it was a natural occurrence, but china says that it's a product of a " suspected explosion." earlier this month north korea shook the ground when they tested a hydrogen bomb. and coulter will not attend free speech week at uc berkeley after conservative speaker invited her to speak at the four day rally which is supposed to feature a line of right wing commentators. the administration is dead set on blocking that event, so she decided not to bother. this as the liberal school struggles to control rioters protesting conservative speakers on that campus. and we told you about nba all-star steph curry saying he probably would skip the golden state warriors post championship trip to the white house. >> we have an opportunity to send a statement that hopefully
encourages unity, encourages us to just appreciate what it means to be americans and stand for something. >> abby: well speaking of statements just moments ago the president responded tweeting this. going to the white house is considered a great honor for a championship team, steph curry is hesitating there for, invitation is withdrawn. all right on that note, pete i'll hand it over to you. >> pete: abbey how is it unity to not know? >> abby: it should be an honor. >> pete: it should be. well new reports that former u.s. ambassador to the u.n. samantha powers sought to unmask hundreds of americans. even after election day averaging more than one request for every working day in 2016, even to the very days leading up to president trump's inauguration but is this story getting the coverage it deserves here to debate it marie harp, former state department spokesperson under president obama and caylee mcanaty, rnc republican national committee spokesperson both of you thank you very much for joining us this morning so maria
i'll start with you. you were involved in national security matters obviously with the obama administration likely knew samantha power. did she have any business unmask ing at this many names that frequently all the way to the end when we know that a lot of these things have been leaked we've seen evidence of potentially some political targeting. what business does she have doing this much unmasks? >> well pete, i don't know if this story is true but here is what i do know, that the u.s. ambassador to the united nations is a national security role. just look at what nikki haley is doing for example, on north korea right now and they often have a very legitimate reason, a need to know as we say in the intel world to get this information and we've seen no evidence in any of these stories that anyone was unmasked improperly, and that's the key here. there is a process as you know, our former colleagues in the intelligence community take that process very seriously and they're quite frankly offended by the notion that some are saying that they did this for political reasons because they take that process very seriously
>> pete: caylee, marie says no evidence that it was done improperly. what do you say to that? >> well there is some very real questions here. chiefly how did the u.n. ambassador become the u.s. un masker. this is striking, she was reading the private conversations of u.s. citizens and unmasking their identity at the rate of more than one-time a day and marie, you say this is the role of the u.n. ambassador but why is it john boulton only did this one-time when she did it 260 times. >> pete: that's a great question we also checked on this there is a media angle to this too and we checked the morning and evening news of abc, nbc and cbs when the day the story broke. zero minutes of coverage on this story at all. marie you'd have to acknowledge the double standard were it to be john boulton who was unmasks ing names all the way to the end and somehow those names were coming out in media reports and failing new york times and washington post. there would be a lot of coverage of that and maybe a scandal accused; correct? >> look i don't know john boulton was actually never confirmed as u.n. ambassador so it's a little different and the
other difference that you really can't compare to other u.n. ambassadors is the fact that we were going through an unprecedented attack on our democracy by a foreign adversary , and that we had never seen this level of interference in our election by the russians and look, the u.n. ambassador is part of the cabinet. they play a national security role. she was having daily contact with the russian ambassador for example. she was one of the people that i'm sure was supposed to raise this issue with the russians, so look, until there's evidence that anything was done improperly, there's just a lot of accusations and no evidence here. >> pete: caylee, marie says she bud get evidence. bob mueller is running around with a bunch of obama lawyers looking for evidence. should the rnc not look at samantha power and say we want to know what you're doing? >> look, we encourage mueller to look at this. we encourage the investigation, the intel committee investigation to continue. these are very serious questions , pete and it's very disturbing when you have not
only democrats marginalizing this but the mainstream media. my former colleagues at cnn when the subpoenas were issued by the intel committee they call this a freak show, a political side show and corrupt investigation. this is the unmasking of u.s. citizens. any constitution loving fourth amendment loving freedom loving person in this country should be concerned about this. >> pete: those journalists at cnn. marie harp and caylee thank you very much for joining us this morning appreciate it. good debate. all right well, coming up when the declaration of independence be better if we made it a gender neutral document? well, we're about to find out. and the president breaks his silence on the media's favorite summer scandal. why did melania wear stilettos to walk to marine one before going to a flood zone? we're going to get to the bottom of this for sure. everyone loves food trucks as well we're moving on to a story i had to get to as quickly as possible and we've got the best ones on our plaza. we'll be out there soon and eating and rick is already doing it and i am jealous.

confirmation hearing. >> abby: my dad was in the hot seat. he was in the hot seat with the foreign relations committee. this was on tuesday, we have the background. we were all so close together as our family but he was getting drilled about being the next ambassador to russia, this was great i love that photo it's mike lee and you've got a democrat and republican that's my whole family there introducing him and it was so fascinating to be in that room to see how these hearings go down because an issue as serious as russia you get every question thrown your way about north korea, about cybersecurity threats, about their interfering in the election. i've got to say he did a phenomenal job one of the senators said in my seven years doing this i've never been more impressed with someone here answering these questions as the nominee for one of these so from democrats and republicans hopefully he gets through. i think he will but you know the countries lucky to have him. >> pete: to get that praise and is that pre or post? is that post hearing? >> abby: that was pre.
i'm surprised he's so relaxed. >> pete: that's because he's like i've got this man. i know what i'm doing but to think about the contentious post that could be the ambassador of russia in light of everything yet he's a consensus pick speaks a lot to him and his credibility in that space. >> abby: well he came from china so if he's confirmed he will be the first ever ambassador to both china and to russia. >> griff: it would be crazy not to confirm him. he's one of the most gracious people i've met in the 2012 campaign and it's great for this country. >> abby: i'm proud of him. >> pete: absolutely. well we've got a statement from the nfl i can't pull it up in my e-mail, but it says the nfl and players are at our best when we help create a sense of unit in our culture, there's no better response from the clubs and players in the terrible natural disasters, comments like these demonstrate an unfortunate lack of respect for the nfl, our great game and all our players and failure to understand the overwhelming force for good our clubs and players represent in our communities this is a
statement from roger gooddell in response to the kneeling for the national anthem and call for the president they should do that. looks like they're pushing back saying our players should do whatever they want. >> abby: what is what many people expected. i'm shocked you were able to read that. it was tiny. >> griff: there's no way. >> pete: a lot of football fans, he will never take a strong stance. it's not in his blood so he's going to punt on this no matter what. it will take owners and fans to come out and say no no no this is america, our flag, we love it you play a game for a living stand up in that anthem. this is not over because a few players take a knee, the silent majority of americans are saying get up just like president trump did from the podium in alabama last night. >> abby: a lot of people are happy he did stand up. >> pete: absolutely. >> abby: especially in the state of alabama like football capitol of the world. turning to headlines we're following a major security scare in the air when a drone cash crashes into an army helicopter the blackhawk flying over new york city when a civilian drown
bounced off and became lodged in that chopper luckily nobody was hurt but the blades are damaged and need to be replaced. the collision appears to be an accident but still unclear who was flying the drone at that time. also this this morning james comey received a rough welcome at howard university. the former fbi director booed on stage by black lives matter protesters. watch this. >> what happens in most of the real world in about four rows in this auditorium is that people don't listen at all. >> abby: well students were protesting the fbi's treatment of black activists this was comey's first public address since testifying to congress about his controversial firing by president trump. speaking of president trump he's blasting mainstream media for criticizing the first lady's stilettos. >> president trump: got out in the plane in texas she was wearing sneakers which she had with her and she said she wore
high heels, you know she's going to go into the floods with the high heels. >> abby: well the first lady faced backlash after wearing heels when leaving the white house to visit texas in the aftermath of hurricane harvey. unbelievable. let's throw it out to griff and pete and rick. rick what's going on out there? >> we've been waiting all morning long to eat. everybody loves food trucks and this morning we have the new york city's vendi award winning trucks on the plaza. here to tell us is the founder of the new york food truck association ben goldberg, and rebecca mitchell. ben let's start with you so there's a lot of food trucks in new york city and there is vendi 's are like the oscars of food trucks. >> exactly i want to say a love your guys show you do an awesome job. the vendi's are just like the oscars it's street food. we represent over 45 amazing trucks. we really try to get them in different events inconveniencing opportunities and people can go on our website if they want to book any of the trucks and it's stuff they do an
amazing job. >> rebecca you guys were nominated for rookie of the year as a vendi? >> this is a buffalo chicken sandwich. you'll go everywhere from spicy to smoky to sweet all in one journey. it's kind of outrageous. >> i was sus push us and a little angry you made maple buffalo. >> this is great. griff? what are you eating? >> griff: i'm teitac o truck. this is el toro, what am i about to eat? by the way i said earlier if i had a food truck i'd have a taco truck you and gabrielle here what do we got? >> we have our famous bowl so you have saffron rice, pinto beans, chips, packlano yellow and red with a choice of meat and our fine home made salsa, and topped off with cheese.
>> griff: that's fantastic. i love it. now, i'm sending it over to pete >> pete: thank you very much. i'm here with erio. did i get that right? yes. >> pete: you make handheld artisan empanadas. why is this the best? >> we make amazing meals and we have put anything you dream of, the best ingredients inside and it's very healthy. >> pete: i just ate the beef. it was unbelievable. >> thank you so much. >> pete: thank you sir very much rick over to you. >> i'm the lucky guy, so i've got moe here. philly steaks. yes, sir. >> and you won the vendi? >> yes in 2012 rookie of the year. >> so what am i going to eat here? >> an american pepper with fries >> what's that word you're
saying? >> with or without. >> people probably know that and i just messed that up. >> absolutely. well listen thank you for that. everybody by the way inside has been saying you have to get the philly steak. >> it's all about the bread. >> there you go. >> and rolls. >> pete: more eating abbey i promise you we'll bring you food >> rick i'm a philly girl it's all about it. make sure you order the wiz on that. coming up with the declaration of independence be better if we made it gender neutral? one teacher thinks so that's up next and senate republicans are a few votes shy of passing their latest bill to repeal and replace obamacare. the man who helped count those votes for the white house assistant to the president mark short with a great perspective on us is joining us live right after this break. don't want to miss it. ♪ cold beer on a friday night, pair of jeans that fit just right, and the radio up, i can

the september 30 deadline in the latest effort to repeal and replace obamacare. >> pete: will they be able to get this across the finish line that's the million dollar question. joining us is the assistant to the president and director of the office of legislative affairs for the white house mark short. mark, thanks a lot for joining us this morning so that's the big question we see the president last night going after senator mccain this morning talking about senator mccain as well as rand paul, lisa murkowsk i, in speculation about susan collins. are you confident do you leave you with get this across the finish line? >> pete we're still confident we will repeal obamacare. it's what the american people elected republican congress to do in 2010 and what they elected republican senate to do in 2014 and it's a promise they made with american people in 2016 when they elected donald trump to be president of the united states. he has been ready, willing and able to sign a piece of legislation repealing obamacare from day one. congress needs to deliver that will to them. this is our last best chance before the september 30 deadline to get the bill done.
it comes down to four senators, senator paul, mccain, senator mu rkowski and collins are the ones we're trying to convince to get two of the final four votes in order to repeal obamacare but let's talk for one second pete about how bad it actually is and how bad it's getting because i don't think that many politicians in d.c. have been honest with the american people about this. right now in arizona, prices have increased 203% over the last four years. in arizona it's over 190% on individual plans. across our country, 45 per puerto rico of our counties, 45% of the counties have only one insurer left. that's essentially monopoly. insurers have fled the market which means without competitions prices continue to sky rocket and something that's not being told to the american people pete is that the taxes some of the taxes obamacare were delayed by democrats to take impact in 2018 there is a whole new tax coming on every single health plan in america which means most families in america will get hit
with another $500 tax starting in january of 2018. people are getting crushed bio woman a care. it is time to bring this nightmare to an end and repeal it. >> griff: mark it's griff. so let's talk about that september 30 dead loin how quickly will it come if senator rand paul don't come along an get this across the finish line how difficult does it become? >> griff we're confident the american people continue to say to congress we can't let this law stand that we will get it done. the reason we're getting a second opportunity is because many members heard throughout the summer months the frustration of americans who said there's a cry to please repeal this law and you haven't done it yet so we have another chance. if we don't for some reason get it done now, i am confident we will continue to work until it gets repealed. >> pete: mark we've been here before and these susan collins there was no real punishment for susan collins for bucking the white house. what can be done to put the screws to them frankly this is brass tax knuckle politics
leader mcconnell, what more can be done? >> pete i don't think it's a matter of punishment. i think it's a matter of the will of the american people and they will speak and they've spoken which is why there's such a specific turnover in congress and there will continue to be until we actually listen to the american people and get done what they wanted. there's a large number of special interest fighting this and we've talked about how many of the healthcare insurance industries have continued to stand and try to protect obamacare and some of these solutions say you know what we need to do is to have this bipartisan plan that basically bails out companies with more payments. the american people are tired of this. they're tired of special interest getting their way. the insurance industry climbed into bed with the obama administration at a price and that price was if you mandate that everybody in america gets health insurance and every employer forces you to get health insurance, well that creates an artificial demand for insurers across our country. >> pete: and we'll bail you out. >> and now they want a bailout. >> pete: they're also tired of majority leaders that say they tear it out root and branch and
they don't do it. mark short thank you very much for being here. pete thanks for having me on. >> pete: you got it. coming up, get ready, abbey. up next, the must have items for all new parents, next. ♪ baby, baby oh, baby, like baby , baby oh, ♪ copd tries to say, "go this way." i say, "i'll go my own way" with anoro. ♪go your own way once-daily anoro contains two medicines called bronchodilators, that work together to significantly improve lung function all day and all night. anoro is not for asthma . it contains a type of medicine that increases risk of death in people with asthma. the risk is unknown in copd. anoro won't replace rescue inhalers for sudden symptoms and should not be used more than once a day. tell your doctor if you have a heart condition, high blood pressure, glaucoma, prostate, bladder, or urinary problems. these may worsen with anoro.
