listening to dan bongino last night he said the only lead they may have is this girlfriend, the one who has been with him all this time. if anyone is going to know anything is the person who lived with him. they have already questioned her over 6 to 8 hours. the fact we are a week out of this thing and nothing. dean: maybe they know more and they haven't shared it yet. abby: could be the case. pete: you used the word aanythingma. enigma president held event right there in the white house. at that event look at this group here. what a great group. this may be the calm before the storm. everyone wants to know what's the calm before the storm. yesterday in the oval office he was asked again from reporters. listen to what the president said thursday and friday. >> do you guys know what this represents? the calm before the storm. >> what's the storm? >> could be calm before the

3:07 am
trolling the media. the smile and the wink. pete: do you know who else he might be winking at? i don't know winking at pyongyang and tehran. but the media breathlessly freaking out. take a listen. >> why did he say that? it comes as officials tell cnn president trump is prepared to dessert phi the iran nuclear deal. >> it's incredibly reckless. i know the bar is so low it's buried under ground. it's incredibly reckless rhetoric to be talking about the calm before the storm. >> he literally had a smile. if you are talking about a storm of raining fire and brimstone. he literally winked. stop analyzing what is he saying turrets of silliness. >> when people catch their breath in this town. when they hold their breath in this town when he says something like that, you have a smile on your face is, that somewhat satisfying. >> i picture people in this

town holding their breath. that might be a welcome surprise for most of america. be aable so real and raw. pete: speaking of that town "the washington post" the so-called record from washington, d.c. had this headline as well. what storm, mr. president trump puts world on edge with cryptic cliff hanger. do you know the world is really on edge? this guy is going to do something horrible and horrific? dean: i have never seen anybody react. it's a game that he plays well. he made headlines for days now. abby: i think the unpredictability of the president whether it's related to the media or as you said to the world, we don't know who he is talking about. we don't know if he is referring to isis, to north korea, to iran. it could be any of them, it could be all of them. dean: and they don't know either. abby: that is what i heard from both republicans and democrats. that could actually be a really smart strategy. when you are dealing with people like kim jong un. you are dealing with leaders
3:09 am
in iran. you want them on their toes. you want them to be nervous about what that next move might be. you want them to take the president seriously. you want them to know there is someone new. pete: absolutely. the media still hasn't figured out when they are supposed to take him literally they take him figuratively. when they're supposed to take him figuratively, they hold him literally to it look at the statements previous presidents that have allowed iran to get nuclear weapons. the forgottible men and women who voted for president trump. want that town to freak out. i want those reporters going what do you mean? what do you mean? it's beautiful watch. adults are in the white house. he has great advisors. he is doing serious things. and just like i said bread crumbs. they don't know what to do with it. >> having a little fun. abby: bo bergdahl. is he back in the news again. he is expected to plead guilty to deserting his post and just a remind, this is from june 1st, 2014.

an interview that susan rice had with abc's this week. let's play that. >> there is a lot of questions how he was originally captured and blornghtd he had desserted or left his post. was he disciplined or has he already paid the price. >> certainly anybody who has been held in those conditions in captivity for five years has paid an extraordinary price. but that is really not the point. the point is that he is back. he is going to be safely reunited with his family. he served the united states with honor and distinction. pete: honor and distinction. of course one the many sunday morning times when susan rice took to tv like benghazi and explained away the explainable. you remember the rose garden ceremony the president held for the parents when bowe bergdahl was released. the shear lack of awareness about what they had actually done, what this guy had actually done. he walked off his post. he desserted his guys and now he has pled guilty. dean: you know this sort of stuff.
3:11 am
i think the white house was aware of what was going on. they had to have known what had happened. they talked to the other members of his platoon. they weren't saying he was, you know, serving with harsh and distinction. they said something completely different. pete: they were willing to trade five of the worst terrorists in the world for this guy. now pleads guilty for treason. what they got him on was desertion. see what kind of time he gets. likely a plea deal. that remains to be seen. abby: we will follow that one closely. we have other headlines we want to bring you. starting with extreme weather yet again. tropical storm nate turns into hurricane overnight. category 1 storm already deadly killing at least 24 people now across central america. right now louisiana and florida issuing mandatory evacuations as the storm brings winds you of up to 80 miles per hour. hurricane nate could make landfall here in the united states as early as tonight. and the trump administration already facing legal backlash for rolling back obamacare's birth control mandates. the aclu and massachusetts

pete: welcome back to a fox news alert. new details developing on the las vegas shooter. investigators revealing now that the gunman purchased
3:17 am
tracer ammunition just weeks before the attack from a man in arizona. here to react is former chicago police superintendent gary mccarthy. gary, thank you. the use of tracer rounds. they help you identify where you are shooting at night but they can also give away your position. so, we know that he bought them department use them and why we have bought them? >> i don't think he used them because they were having a lot of trouble figuring out where he was firing from. the biggest issue for me is those are military grade vision that really shouldn't exist in a civilized society. you know, the gun debate has to come center. it can't be everybody gets more guns or we -- nobody has any guns. you know why aren't we -- if the second amendment gives us a right to bear arms. why aren't we selling hand grenades at wal-mart? because those are arms or rocket launchers and we have got to draw the line somewhere we have gone way too far. pete: to be clear tracer
3:18 am
round as munition doesn't have any different impact. it's just that you can see it when you fire t exactly right. it tells you which way you are shooting. it's like you put one every five rounds or something like that. pete: absolutely. you are from chicago. you have a big marathon coming up there. and chicago happened to be on the list of major u.s. cities scouted why the gunman and with the marathon happening this weekend what more is being done at events like this. soft target events to protect them? >> after the boston bombing when i was still the superintendent. we really ramped up what we were doing as far as coverage for the marathon. unfortunately, the freedoms that make this country great also make us vulnerable. and it's literally impossible to cover every single building in downtown chicago or over at 26-mile route. there will be helicopters up. and i'm sure that there is extra precautions that have been taken. we ramped up the number of bomb sniffing dogs. we put a lot more police
3:19 am
into the crowd both undercover and uniformed officers. but, again, you can't cover everything. if you are in an arena or stadium. it's a lot easier to cover a target that's not moving or spread out like that. there will be significant presence by the chicago police department. but the greatest protection we have, unfortunately didn't work in las vegas. which is our intelligence that we share with our partners like the fbi working on terrorism and trying to prevent these things from happening. by the way i'm not ready to dismiss terrorism in las vegas. this guy doesn't fit the profile of what would normally have been somebody who became radicalized but by the same token, he obviously carried out a well-planned, well-executed, technical attack. the cameras, the bombs, the bump stocks, all of those things take some expertise. it's difficult for me to believe that he acted by himself. pete: you wouldn't rule out terrorism. you think that's been written off a little bit too quickly in what happened in
3:20 am
las vegas? >> i don't think it's been written off. and, again, you guys just mentioned the fact that we're probably not hearing everything out of joe lombardo or the fbi as far as what they know. but, the fact is, that's still got to be in play. look radical dick callized disenfranchised, absolutely. obviously, this guy had some problems and he became vulnerable as a result. don't write off the philippines. there is a very big terrorism component in the philippines. who knows what the relationship was. pete: gary mccarthy, thank you very much. good luck with the marathon this weekend. we appreciate it? >> thank you. pete: all right. coming up, it's one of the president's signature campaign promises. >> we will build a great wall along the southern border. build that wall. build that wall. pete: my favorite is the wall just got 10 feet higher. this morning we just got a first look at what his big beautiful wall could look

♪ abby: we are back with a fox news alert. three men, including an american now charged with plotting terrorist attacks right here in new york city. pete: the targets they were targeting against times square and the subway system. dean: kristin fisher in d.c. with the latest on the 9/11
3:34 am
inspired plan. abby: hey, kristin. >> good morning abby, pete, and dean. thankfully federal authorities were able to stop this isis inspired attack before it ever happened. these terrorists were going against some of the iconic land marks, concert venues and transportation. one target times square. one of the plotters actually emailed undercover fbi agent posing as an isis sympathizer and told him, quote, we seriously need a car bomb at times square. look at these crowds of people. he also wanted to created the next 9/11. another target the new york city subway system and they apparently had obtained maps of the system to help them plan their attacks. three men have now been arrested and charged. one of the u.s. citizens based in pakistan. another is from the philippines. and the third is a canadian citizen. now, he is the one who authorities say actually purchased all these bomb-making materials. and at one point he also outlined a plan to target
3:35 am
music festivals and concerts. he told the undercover fbi agent that he wanted to, quote, shoot up concerts because they kill a lot of people. now, keep in mind, this all happened last year, it has nothing to do with what just happened in las vegas. still the timing of this revelation pretty remarkable, abby, pete, and dean. be aable so frightening. thank you, kristin. pete: we almost never hear about the dozens of plots foiled. dean: again thing they are foiled, too. you sort of forget you get lulled into complacency and something like that comes up. abby: gives you a 70s the mind someone who wants to kill as many people as possible. let's go to concerts and go to places out in the open where all of us like to go and enjoy our time off. it's really, really sad. pete: we are still at war the enemy is probing. dean: must stay vigilant. speaking of vegas. all week long we have seen incredible examples of bravery run into the gunfire
3:36 am
while everyone runs away. how does a team like that train for these kind of threats? abby: pete spent the day with suffolk county emergency services and found out. pete: suffolk county on long island. able to hop out there and see some of the training that they do. these are the guys that the police call when they need back up. the suffolk county pd swat team also known as emergency services. they train year around for active shooter situations like the one in las vegas. we got a look inside. [explosion] >> hands up. pete: give us a sense into the tactics that you use how you train for active shooter scenario. >> we need to get in as quickly as possible and effectively terminate the threat or stop the shooting. so, the way we train the officers now on patrol is if you are the first person on the scene, you have to make that personal choice to make entry into that structure. >> hands up. hands up. on the floor. on the floor. on the floor. pete: we are all watching from afar what happened in
3:37 am
las vegas. >> go that way. go that way, go that way. pete: just from what you've seen, your reaction to, you know, those men that were clearing those floors and what they were face. >> from a law enforcement standpoint from a shooter type from 1200 yards away is quite difficult. it's going to have to effectively rely on some 911 calls to try to localize where those shots are coming from. if you were standing in the crowd it would be quite difficult. the response to the hotel and the actual room where the shooting came from from what i understand was handled beautifully. >> breach, breach, breach. >> every second is a casualty. that's why it's imperative the officers at the scene have to get there as quickly as possible and neutralize the threat. >> they are shooting right at us, guys. everybody stay down. pete: what kind of gear am i going to be wearing today? >> we are going to put on you a ballistic vest. this is what we operate and train. in we always train the way we want to operate so guys
3:38 am
know. train as you fight, exactly. weight does make a difference especially when you are working in it all day. you want to get accustomed to wearing the gear. pete: are they resistant. >> they are rated for rifle round. i would not want to take a rifle in the chest wearing anything a plate or not. pete: it's been a while. >> slip it up over your head. pete: got to get it nice and snug. that's the key. >> ballistic helmet. >> feels like home right here. pete: we are about to roll up. tell me what's going through your head. >> main thing watch each other's back. we all want to go home at the end of the day. pete: the psychology when you are at that door and prepared to go into active shooter environment. what's going through your head? >> you have to be able to flip a switch. it's definitely an aggressive act. we control the structure by violence, speed and surprise. that's how the tactics are
3:39 am
most effective. you know, it's one thing to deal with those pressures on deployment it's a whole other thing when that's your job on a daily basis. you don't realize how often that swat team gets called out. they don't know what's on the other side of that door. dean: speed, violence action. pete: amazing guys. dean: feel nice put gear back on. pete: when i said home? abby: you wore that same type of vest when you were overseas? pete: i couldn't tell you. i should know. probably 30 or 40 pounds. it's better. the one i wore in iraq almost a decade earlier was heavier. equipment has gotten better. amazing folks out there. those are the ones charging into that hotel room in vegas. dean: unbelievably brave. pete: turning now to extreme weather. the gulf coast bracing for another hurricane. >> states from louisiana to florida already issuing mandatory evacuations in

3:41 am
shore as well as storm surge. official forecast pulling off toward the north very quickly. making landfall overnight tonight. move out across the tennessee valley, ohio valley and exit across the northeast. everybody by the time this is done getting a little bits of this. tonight the storm coming on shore. abby: sounds different from hurricane harvey where that just lingered along the coast. this one seems to be moving a lot faster. rick: way faster. going to keep the flooding way less extreme than what we saw with that storm. dean: those guys are getting pounded in the south. pete: maybe it this is a moment where we should have taken the president literally this is the calm before the storm. one of the president's signature campaign promises. >> we will build a great wall along the southern border. build that wall, build that wall. dean: this morning, we're getting our first look at what his big beautiful wall could look like. pete: and president trump is dealing with crisis after crisis the last several weeks from las vegas to hurricanes to north korea.

don't do anything rash in the heat of the moment. taking the issue from all sides. keep a cool head as emotional temperatures and the stakes of the issue rise. so important. abby: it's so interesting to look back on history and how many crisis this country has faced and how every single time we come back better and we come back stronger. and so much of that has to do with who is leading that country at the time. >> it certainly does. leaders have such an impact, abby. abby: it's a great book. forged in crisis. we have it on our website as well. i highly recommend. have you done so much research on this nancy. >> a pleasure to be here. abby: late night host has taken a hard turn to the left attacking president trump, we know this, every single night. >> house speaker paul ryan said he thinks president trump's heart is in the right place on race relations, oh, i'm sorry, his heart is in the white place. abby: is the late night's line up turn to politics hurting late night ratings? plus, i talked to my dad,

[applause] >> dean: so why are all these late night hosts trading traditional comedy for political commentary? pete: help us out here, phil, is this for ratings? is this because they have always been leftists and now they are unleashed because of trump? why are we getting politics late night? >> well, making fun of the president has always been part of late night television. it's actually, you know, healthy for democracy. but there needs to be truth in kidding. not partisan ideology. i think where a lot of these late night comics went wrong they swapped liberal talking points out for their punch lines. jimmy kimmel just recently when he put together his obamacare monologue he literally worked with chuck

schumer's office on that material. it's a total joke. >> actually having talking points from schumer into the monologue, that's a rough one. i know jimmy, i like jimmy. he made fun of you and your hair. >> he did. dean: i like those guys. i don't want to get that politics. i don't mind jokes but the hard politics, it's -- and it's always at trump's expense. not in a joking way just kind of mean-spirited always. people are getting sick of it, i think. >> if you are going to stay up that late for late night comedy, you want a laugh not a lecture. the probable here is they are not even original. can you turn on any major news network and get criticism of president trump. and i think put this in perspective recently when he pointed out that late night used to be king. when you david letterman and jay leno. these guys were bringing in 10 million viewers a week regularly. now the best kimmel and fallon and colbert can do is about 8 million.

4:07 am
tell you when he is going to pull troops out of a place or, you know, telegraph his moves. and maybe that's effective. i don't know yet. pete: that's been his approach to your point. he said i want to be unpredictable. if you are in pyongyang or you are in moscow or you are in tehran, does he mean us? he says calm. i don't feel calm anymore. this storm may be coming. this is a guy who has done this time and time again and staying unpredictable means you have a bit of an advantage. abby: it may not be a message to the journalists. my sense it's a message to maybe isis leaders. maybe it's to kim jong un. maybe it's to iran it could be any of those things. dean: or all of them. abby: he was sitting there surrounded by his generals the people he admires the most he gets that input from. clearly they have a sense of what they are planning to do when it comes to all of these national security concerns that we face today. so he knew what he was doing there. my sense is, they are
4:08 am
talking about something specific. it might be what's going on with the fight against isis it may have to do with iran and north korea. we're going to have to wait and see. dean: maybe he sat there and said this sounds good to say right now. that's the thing, nobody really knows. that could be effective. pete: do you know who is the most scared in the media. [laughter] >> why did he say that? it comes as officials tell cnn president trump is prepared to dessert phi the iran nuclear deal. >> it's incredibly reckless. i know we discount. i know the bar is so low it's buried under ground. it's incredibly reckless rhetoric to talk about the calm before the storm. >> you could see when he said it three seconds afterwards he literally had a smile. if you are talking about a storm of raining fire and brimstone. you are not smiling. he literally winked. we have to stop trying to analyze what he said. it's just temperatur tourettes f silliness. >> when people catch their breath in this town, hold

4:18 am
democrats. if they can just gradually take our gun rights away until the second amendment is gone, that is their mission. and we as republicans. we as second amendment lovers know that. that's why we are so reis i tent from the efforts from the left. if you look at bump stocks, we are not talking about guns, we are talking about a piece of equipment that takes a semiautomatic to an automatic weapon and automatic weapons are banned and that's why we can take that step with democrats. but, make no mistake, we wholly understand the game of what they are trying to do. abby: any time a horrific incident like this happens, there are a couple things that happens. we want to figure out what the motive is, absolutely. also, try to figure out how this can't happen again and that's why it oftentimes goes to gun control. but what conversation should would he be having right now? what conversation should we have had over the past week? what causes a person to wake up one morning and want to kill himself and as many other people as possible? >> listen, abby, that's a great point. it goes back to what's happening in our culture. what's happening in our families. we have to look to a common
4:19 am
theme through these horrific events. and this is where have you crowds that gather. and whether have you crowds and guns are used against these crowds or have you seen in europe where they will use trucks or at the boston marathon they will use pressure cookers. when you have people that are hell bent on killing fellow citizens, there is a lot of tools at their disposal. and i don't hear democrats talking about banning pressure cookers, knives, or automobiles. but they will take a tragedy like this, when people are still in the hospital fighting for their lives and they will introduce that to advance a political cause which is to ban firearms. i don't think they are looking at the broader issues here which is what happens in society? how do we deal with mental illness. they just use this for political purposes, which i think is frankly incredibly sad. pete: absolutely. bump stock, is a piece of equipment. you acknowledge you seem to think maybe that is the type of thing that could be banned. isn't that basically
4:20 am
following into their argument we can pass this one bill on a bump stock when the next attack could be something else? >> i don't think so. i think, pete, we understanding this isn't going to resolve the problem. i think this is step in saying we have banned automatic weapons and this will transition semiautomatic to an automatic and therefore we will take the step to ban it so, no, i don't think we are falling into the argument. again, we understand that this is incrementalism. this is baby steps for democrats. no matter what you give them, they will never be satisfied until, again, the second amendment is gone. they don't understanding, even coming from san francisco like nancy pelosi and think banning gun sass great idea or new york city. in places like where we come from, this is a way of life. people grow up using guns. respecting guns. knowing how to use them and we use them for really good purposes. we, you know, we respect them, love them, one more point before i go, when you take firearms away from people, you take them away from law abiding citizens.

people who understand the realities inherent in a difficult u.s.-russia relationship. abby: someone you won't always be on the same page is president vladimir putin. i know you can't talk a lot about that interaction. talk about the morale in russia right now. because over 700 employees have now been sent home, punishabled by the russians. >> it's really unfortunate that the russians made the decision that they did. to cut substantially cut our diplomatic presence in russia. we all know that we are facing difficult times. probably the most difficult period in the relationship since the end of the cold war. this is a little bit like 1986 all over again where we went through the same kind of tit-for-tat which serves really no purpose at all. abby: what's going to be your greatest challenge? >> i think personally, abby, the greatest challenge will be showing that we can achieve results in this relationship that are good for the people of america and good for the people of
4:30 am
russia. because the last thing i want to tell the president or the secretary of state, or the secretary of defense in the months and years ahead is we did our very best, sir, but we didn't get anywhere. i think the taxpayers expect more than that. abby: i love what you say about our military and my brothers. they're serving this country and they are proud to do so. do you worry where the country is right now that we are losing that sense of service? >> i think we are still the greatest country on the face of the earth when it comes to our commitment to service, our volunteer spirit. show me another country in the world that turns out during a time of need where neighbors are helping neighbors and friends are helping friends. it's hard to even talk about. abby: you are going to make me cry. don't do that. >> it's a unique place. i don't think we are less weak today. i think we are stronger. i really do. we have our divides. we have the issues that
4:31 am
polarize people, but we also have some central strengths that are rallying points. abby: i'm going to put you on the spot right now you speak fluid mandarin how is your russian come both toughest languages you can learn. >> my colleagues in the embassy mentioned the other day that my russian is spoken with a chinese accent. [laughter] pete: have you done amazing entries. were you more nervous interviewing your dad? abby: i think we both were. when he got emotional there is a lot on his plate and challenges ahead. that was the moment we said goodbye. i will get emotional if we keep talking about it. there was a lot in that moment on live television. but is he an incredible man. there is no place i would rather give him up to than this country. dean: so cool your daughter is interviewing you. how could you not be emotional. coming up, if the dead could

4:37 am
there is just no evidence of that. the only thing we do have on terrorist angle front is their claims, the isis claims through their weekly newsletter that they had radicalized this individual. now they have in the past on some occasions taken claim credit for attacks. those are rare occurrence. i'm no big fan of the "new york times" there is a "new york times" reporter who has been doing unbelievable work on this. who said, listen, we just can't discount this. it's very unusual for them to claim this repeatedly if there is no connection at all. abby: how unusual is that when you look at past incidents that have happened. it seems like they can trace back something on social media page, maybe family members. maybe friend ne knew something. friends had to go back on the expedia page to trace some of his footprints. are we going to get to a place where we never know the actual motive behind this mad man. >> i'm glad you asked that question, abby, i was thinking about in this morning before this
4:38 am
appearance here. i think we all need to prepare ourselves for the possibility that this guy had antisocial personality disorder or what you would call -- what we would call just normal talk a psychopath. a sociopath. these are the kind of people, the serial killer types who live relatively normal lives like this individual. they don't elicit suspicion from anyone, the neighbors, the gas station guy, the guy at the local bar. and one day all of these psychological disturbances manifest themselves in the form of a serial killing spree or in this case a mass murder. i really -- i will never forget "people of a lie" about easel, genuine evil and people who live eel lives who have no sense of empathy or consequence at all. and i think we need to prepare ourselves that that may be a possibility here. we may not get an easy answer. dean: chuck schumer had something to say about some of the victims from the attack. listen to this and please react. >> if we could talk to those brave souls who were killed and are now in heaven, they
4:39 am
would say do something. they wouldn't say let's wait. president trump, are you going to wait to hear what the nra says first? dean: how we know, dan? how would he know what the dead would say? >> we can't talk to these people because they're not here. because they were murdered by a maniac in las vegas. and, frankly, i'm disgusted with these swamp rat political creature animals who go in to deep sea and do what chuck schumer did. if i could talk to the dead and all of a sudden they would tell us the nra is responsible for it and then he says another thing which is typical of a chuck schumer political animal. he says we should be doing something. you know what? we are doing something. do you know what i do? i go home and i make sure my family is prepared in the case of an emergency. i have two daughters. do you know what i do? i legally carry a responsible -- a firearm responsibly because i'm a dad.
4:40 am
and i have a home and a wife and a family i care about to defend. and the idea that we should continually be on the defensive, guys, and have to defend ourselves legal, law abiding responsible gun owners because of the acts of a homicidal maniac is disgusting. the fact that the democrats, some, not all, but people like chuck schumer invoke the memories of the dead, victims of this crime and they do it to leverage a political narrative, narrative that somehow we're at fault? the good american people who just want t left alone is beyond disgusting. he should be ashamed. and he is an example, by the way, of everything wrong with modern politics. reason goes out the window. emotion dominates and it's attack, attack, attack the other side. instead of getting an actual problem solved. it's disgusting. pete: how are you going to get a problem solved when you impugn the motives of another. right, dan? ultimately chuck schumer is saying if you support the second amendment you must not support the people that died? >> bingo, pete.

4:48 am
the implications of the trade, of trading the taliban -- some of their top five leaders for this deserter, where are those five today? are they recruiting? are they fundraising? what about soldiers who are harmed indirectly going forward as a result of this trade? also this is about accountability and justice for other hostage families that were held and are currently held all over the world who are asking themselves why didn't the obama administration trade or make some type of concession for our loved one. why would they trade and give the enemy this type of concession for a deserter but not for folks like kayla muriel and jim folly, aide workers and others trying to do good around the world. finally, guys, we have hostages held in afghanistan and pakistan still today. and the terrorists are still thinking they can get some type of concession because of the precedent that was set by this trade. so there is still accountability to be held
4:49 am
here in my mind. pete: colonel, how soon did you know he had desserted. they said honor and distinction. how soon did you know? was it hours or days? >> during the search we knew he had desserted. he stacked up his gear on his cot, his body armor, his weapon, his night vision, his helmet and he had sent emails over to his family, you know, expressing his dissatisfaction with what america was doing in afghanistan. we knew he disserted. but it's very important for folks to know that we did not let our foot off the gas at all in terms of our search for him because we knew he would be a major, major propaganda victory for the taliban and haqqani and terrorists over there to capture him and use him in videos like they did denouncing the united states. pete: extract five of theirs for one of ours. >> that's right. pete: you were a leader of the best went after him regardless. michael waltz, thank you very much for this time and your amazing expertise. we appreciate it? >> thank you. dean: it's the comment that

course we get serious here as well. six days since 58 innocent people were gunned down at las vegas music festival. but authorities still say they don't have a motive. dean: this coming as more dramatic video surfaces of the shooting which investigators are now asking the public to figure out why it happened. abby: will carr is live for us in las vegas with the very latest. will, what are you hearing there? >> they are tracking down more than 1,000 leads this weekend. and it comes as 26 survivors are still in critical condition. almost 60 people still in the hospital. and here at the scene you can see police tape is still up. this is actually covering up where this fence was. what happened was as the concert was going on, the shots started coming, in dozens of people came through in a stampede. they pushed through this fence as they were running for their lives. >> shots. run. those are shots. run. don't walk. run. go. go. go.
5:04 am
everybody go. >> as more and more of that terrifying video comes out, authorities are still struggling for the motive. we know they are talking to stephen paddock's girlfriend marilou danley. they are also looking into his financial statements. he earned $5 million in winning in 2015. he also paid for one house and a car in cash. at the same time they are continuing to see if paddock actually planned to stakeout other concert festivals in both chicago and boston. and at the same time this city is taking significant time to honor the victims. there is a memorial out in front of the iconic welcome to las vegas sign. a carpenter from chicago drove in to town after the attack and he set up 58 woodenned crosses each now has the name of each individual victim and their picture. when you walk through that, it is both powerful and emotional. >> it's humbling and heart breaking. it's so beautiful.

but so devastating. it's every emotion at once. the kindness of this community is just amazing. >> along those lines, there is a unity prayer walk that's going to take place in just a couple of hours. vice president mike pence is coming in town for that as he remembers the victims as well. guys, back to you. abby: will carr live for us. thank you, will. what's so tragic about this is all those people that have lost a loved one, they may never know what happened here. they may never know what the motive was, because that's where we always go to. what was behind the -- what was the reason for doing this and then how do we prevent this from happening again. that's why we so often go to that gun control debate. pete: if you are like us, you wake up this morning, thinking they have got to have info on why the guy did it it's almost tough to report we still don't know. no rationale that would ever justify anything. but whether you have a motive can you at least understand in this case what thin the world.
5:06 am
>> i hope they have something they haven't given us yet. pete: could be. >> first reaction is goes right to gun control. that's emotional reaction. we are hearing tons of that right now. >> we saw hillary clinton went at gun control almost within 24 hours. it was immediately where they g we heard chuck schumer blame. those ha that are dead would be angry at the nra and republicans because they are not doing enough. nancy pelosi was also on capitol hill on thursday. and has this to say. >> so what? they are going to say if you give them bump stock, it's going to be slippery slope. i certainly hope. so. >> that's your revelation right there. pete: argument republicans on board with the bump stock banning legislation. we will keep it right here, just the bump stock. the fear of so many gun owning americans, second amendment lovers is that the democrats don't want your bump stock. democrats want your gun. and that's where you start
5:07 am
is that slippery slope. and then have you got the minority leader admitting that. >> it's interesting. you don't ever really see democrats and republicans coming together on gun control. when it comes to bump stock i'm not sure can you call that gun control. that's something you put on a semiautomatic weapon. many people didn't even know that existed even some of the lawmakers. have you some republicans saying okay we can get on board with that even the administration saying. pete: and the nra. abby: and the nra. not everyone is on the same page. sean duffy was on our show earlier. here is what he said the item dems are trying to do. >> if this s. incrementalism for democrats. if they can gradually take our gun rights away until the second amendment is gone that's their mission. we are not talking about guns, we are talking about a piece of equipment that takes a semiautomatic to an automatic weapon and automatic weapons are banned and that's why we can take that step with democrats. make no mistake we all understand the game of what
5:08 am
they are trying to do. abby: that's why republicans can get on board with this. why do we need a bump stock? why does anybody need that? dean: nobody does. it makes it an automatic weapon. that's illegal. that's the nra stance. pete: thigh ming imy thing is yt legislate your way out of this. it can be a truck. mad man in a free society are going to find ways to kill people. you can't create a law to solve every problem. washington, d.c. can pat themselves on the back passed a bump stock. you can't pass anything else meaningful. only way to get along with democrats is if they get their way. abby: so unusual in this ear wrath republicans and democrats come together. we can report at fox news our own chad pergram senior producer on capitol hill, president trump called chuck schumer the minority leader yesterday and talked to him about healthcare and whether or not they are going to find a way to work together or if there this is a bigger
5:09 am
message that the president is trying to send the republicans of you can't get your act together. you can't do a full repeal when you have the majority of the senate and the house and i'm in control. the executive branch. if we can't do that as republicans, i have got to get a deal done. i have got to make some real changes on healthcare. if it means working with the democrats, i'm going to go there. dean: a dealmaker. he will make a deal. force their hand and make a deal on the republican side as well. pete: if you are sitting in the white house and say the republicans couldn't pass the skinny bill and then the republicans couldn't pass lindsey graham's bill, then i need to scare them into coming back to the table. guess what, chuck schumer is not going to agree to any bill that repeals obamacare. every single one of those republicans in the senate ran, including john mccain, ran on repealing and replacing. not fixing a little bit and replacing. repealing and replacing. chuck schumer would never be on board for that, again, democrats come to the table when they want to spend your money, more of your money because they love to spend money or if they can preserve obamacare. they would see this as a path to work with president
5:10 am
trump to preserve obamacare because that's all they want to do is protect it the president is smart in creating some leverage with his own caucus. hopefully that's where it goes. you don't want to cut a big deal that makes obamacare permanent. he ran against obamacare as well. so a lot of tricky ground here. and i just don't believe that the unicorns of good faith democrats truly exist who really want to work with this president. they will take incremental wins. abby: it's interesting they are having these. dealmaker. that's what president trump ran on "the art of the deal." ultimately what do democrats care about most winning elections. election is around the corner. healthcare is on the top of everyone's minds right now. if republicans can't get anything done. if the alternative is making some incremental positive changes that can make a real difference, the president is saying, you know what? that's my only choice right now. that's all i have got. dean: citizens throughout want to see something get done. they want to see it happen. maybe this is a way to get it done. work with chuck and nancy. that would be interesting. all right. so we're going to check in with rick. what do we have going on?

5:18 am
north korea is only getting worse. we cannot allow this to continue. so there is gonna be a storm. what the storm is, nobody knows but is he warning both north korea and iran they cannot continue on the current track. that endangers the national security of the united states and of the world. dean: he didn't say it that eloquently but he said it very simply and there is a calm before the storm. the media doesn't care about iran. they are not talking about iran in that situation. they are talking about the fact that he winked and said "you'll see." >> i think he is not -- he said right from the beginning of his campaign i'm not telling my enemies what my plan is all he is doing is he is issuing a warning and what he is saying is if you think you can just continue the way north korea is continuing to test nuclear weapons. and if you think iran can continue, look, atomic -- international atomic energy agency said they could not certify that iran is not an -- and i will quote them, engaging in activities that
5:19 am
contribute and design the development of a nuclear explosive device." what the agency is saying is that right now what iran is doing is they're developing methods for creating a nuclear bomb in the 8 to 10 years. right now they can do anything. they can develop rockets. they can develop intercontinental ballistic missiles that radio room for nuclear war head. but, they can't spin centrifuges. as soon as they start spinning the centrifuges they will make are a arsenal that make north korea seem like nothing. abby: have you written a book against the iran deal. the president -- i think it's up october 15th to recertify. >> right. abby: he is being told by some of his generals to keep it in place. what your advice to the president on what to do here? >> my advice is not to tear it up but to renegotiate and to make sure -- remember, iran says in the deal iran reaffirms it will never under any circumstances try to acquire or develop nuclear weapons. we're going to stick with you that congress ought to
5:20 am
authorize the president to take whatever military action is necessary whenever, if ever iran tries to develop nuclear weapons. now, that's not enough. because they may not try to develop nuclear weapons. they may always want to be on the verge. a month away so that we have no excuse but that can't be allowed to continue. and so we have to renegotiate the deal to make sure they can't develop intercontinental ballistic missiles. they can't develop as the atomic energy says designs capable of being used for explosives. the president has to do that. and i think he is going to. abby: good advice. "trumped up" the book is a great one. allen dershowitz, great to have you with us. >> thank you. al. abby: this firefighter was killed on illegal immigrant on texas highway. the only two years in jail for that horrific crime. fighting for justice. she is joining us live after the break.

5:27 am
in front of it is already making him a criminal. people think that his crime, that his punishment seemed to fit because he was an illegal immigrant. for some reason it seems to me that they feel that he should have some sort of special circumstances and that he should be treated differently because he is an illegal immigrant. to me, being illegal in this country was a crime on its own, so i don't understand how he did get only two years and it's, to me, i take it offensively. i take it very personally. abby: well, your husband was an imgrant himself. he came here legally. >> he was. abby: you are now fighting for change. what are you hoping happens? what are you wanting to get changed? >> i want our lays to be -- lawe

enforced. border patrol accept over 100,000 illegal immigrants on a regular basis. and letting them go isn't solving the problem. something needs to be done, something -- the message needs to be put across to them that when you come to this country, you need to do it legally because when they come here, all they are getting is they are committing crimes. they are getting a slap on the wrist and they are going back to mexico or they are going back to whatever country they came from. and they were here illegally. they were committing a crime and they come here and commit you a larger crime and they get a slap on the wrist and they get to go home. i want to see those laws enforced and i want to see stricter punishment for those crimes. abby: what is your reaction? i'm sure you saw the news. the state of california now becoming a sanctuary state. the governor brown has signed that in to law. what is going through your mind? how does that make you feel? >> i guess disappointed,
5:29 am
really. we have so many issues in our laws to begin with. so, to declare yourself a sanctuary state and say if you need -- if you want to be here illegally, it's okay, just come to us is slapping the wrist wrist of the country in the face. so i don't believe one state in the country should have the right to say it's okay for us for you to not follow the law but everybody else you follow the law like it's supposed to be followed. so, california is kind of a slap in the face and it should be to all-american citizens. abby: courtney, before we let you go, what are the best memories you have of your two beautiful children? how do you remember them? >> um, the sunshine on a dark day. i remember their beautiful faces. i see them from the moment i wake up until the moment i go to bed.

5:46 am
us in new orleans. nate, what can the people there expect? >> quite a bit of rain and heavy winds, abby. the rain is starting to fall on lake pontchartrain north of new orleans. president trump has approved the emergency disaster declaration. fema are coordinating operations. most of the 200 flood gates like this one have been closed. there are 150 barricades set up to protect low lying streets and keep vehicles off the roads here. sandbags have now been handed out. the national guard has been ache at this i have thed they have boats and staged at police departments and fire departments. they are evacuating oil rigs and oil platforms in the gulf ahead of this storm which is expected to bring category 1 force winds and a storm surge to the gulf coast. >> no one should take this storm lightly it has already claimed the lives of at least 20 people and nicaragua and in honduras. and as we know from past storms, low intensity doesn't necessarily mean low
5:47 am
impact. >> a big concern here are that the bumping stations could be overwhelmed. 11 of the 120 are out. and the flooding is likely. they are making preparations, abby, as this storm bears down. they are saying 85 mile-per-hour winds, higher gusts and it could strengthen before it hits and a curfew will be in effect in the city of new orleans at 7:00 p.m. local tonight. abby? abby: new orleans all over again. all right, rick, you will be keeping us posted all weekend long. thank you so much. dean, take it away. dean: thank you, abby. a top democrat is calling for chuck schumer and nancy pelosi to step aside. >> i do think it's time to pass the torch to a new generation of leaders. i want to be a part of that transition. i want to see that happen. dean: should pelosi and schumer take a backseat and let new voices take the wheel? here to debate are former trump campaign spokesperson and american first action spokesperson katrina pearson and democratic strategist otima omara is it time for
5:48 am
blood in the democratic party? >> you know what, dean, i have to say sure, why not? this is what happens when you are stuck in a party that does nothing but play politics of gender and every other separation. but it is undeniable that in a post obama era party that the democrats are struggling to find their voice. had you someone who was relatively unknown come in and beat the clinton establishment and then they ran that same establishment who lost again to someone else who was particularly outside of politics. so, sure, they should absolutely be looking at new leadership. dean: i bet you are going to disagree on this. what's your take on this? new blood? >> i would be remiss as a former young democrats of america to say i think it's always good to have new blood and getting new people elected our side of the aisle or just in general. i think that chuck and nancy
5:49 am
as trump affectionately refers to them as have actually been getting more done when it came to the debt ceiling and even in having some discussions on budget and actually holding the party line on healthcare in the last nine months than the republicans have having been in power this entire time. dean: people want to see something happen. is it okay that he is reaching across the aisle to those leaders? >> i think so. i do think that the ratings of congress are low for a good reason. and that is because they would like to see more bipartisan action. and that's something that definitely, i think, was in the best interest of the american people. >> i would actually like them to stay, dean. i'm not one of those people calling for new leadership. president trump is doing a great job at reaching across the aisle when necessary. is he taking on both sides of the establishment here. beat them both in november. but, at the same time, of course, i would love to see them stay in place because these are the leaders that led the democratic party to where they are now. extremely divisive and dismissive of half the
5:50 am
population. with mid terms coming up. we need those voices out there again to show which party is actually moving towards the future. dean: thank you both for that lively debate. we'll be right back. is that whole thing still dragging on? no, i took some pics with the app and... filed a claim, but... you know how they send you money to cover repairs and... they took forever to pay you, right? no, i got paid right away, but... at the very end of it all, my agent... wouldn't even call you back, right? no, she called to see if i was happy. but if i wasn't happy with my claim experience for any reason, they'd give me my money back, no questions asked. can you believe that? no. the claim satisfaction guarantee, only from allstate. switching to allstate is worth it.

paddock's girlfriend, and they're also looking into his financial past. we know that he earned $5 million in gambling winnings back in 2015. he also paid for at least one house and one car in cash and at the same time they're continuing to see if he planned to stake out other concert venues in both chicago and boston. it comes as the city continues to honor the victims. there is now a memorial in front of the iconic welcome to las vegas sign, a carpenter from chicago drove down and he put up 58 wooden crosses, each cross now has both a picture and the name of each individual victim that's both powerful and emotional. >> heartbreaking. it's heartbreaking to physically walk through and see how many people were killed. i mean, you walk through and you can feel that and it's heavy. it's uplifting at the same time to see so many people come out and leave flowers and candles. we follow them and walk around
6:05 am
just relighting candles on her own accord and just to see the community come together is beautiful. >> reporter: and then there are the survivors 26 people still in critical condition, almost 60 in hospitals. little bit later today there will be a unity prayer walk vice president mike pence coming in town for that guys. >> pete: thanks, will. >> abby: you can see behind him that fence that it was basically removed from people. >> dean: you are really running your for your life if you go through that thing and unbelievable. >> abby: and still it sounds like no new information we still have no clue what that motive is maybe officials know more than we do. i hope they do but still so hard >> pete: as dan bongino said last hour we may not know why. which means we've inevitably moved our way into a debate about guns and gun control. no one with heard the word bump stock or very few had before this incident. it's a device that allows a semiautomatic to fire like an
6:06 am
automatic. there's republicans now teaming up with democrats potentially to ban it but some are questioning whether or not this is a slippery slope could lead to other erosions of second amendment rights. well nancy pelosi took to the podium and revealed her hand a little bit. >> so what? they're going to say if you give them bump stock it's going to be a slippery slope? i certainly hope so. >> dean: well that makes it pretty clear when nancy stands on that and i'm a member of the nra. i'm fully in support of the second amendment 100%. i think there's a lot of emotional reactions that come right after an event like this and they want to start ledge us lating the nra's position is that the bump stock turns a semiautomatic into an automatic weapon which there for makes it illegal so any device that turns semiautomatic into an automatic makes it illegal they want the atf to be the atfe now to regulate that as opposed to legislation. >> abby: you'll see republicans and democrats coming together on
6:07 am
that the administration looking into an issue but we don't often see republicans and democrats working together on anything today and interesting, now on healthcare, i mean we've seen republicans try to put something forward to repeal obamacare, they've not been successful as we talk about all the time on this show. well its come out that the president has spoke with chuck schumer yesterday, gave him a call on the phone, talking about healthcare. he tweeted this out this morning , said i called chuck schumer yesterday to see if the dems want to do a great healthcare bill. obamacare is badly broken. big premium who knows and i think the question is is this about him working with democrats or sending a real clear message to republicans if you don't get your act together, this is the alternative. >> dean: it's like the we'll see the calm before the storm. who knows? it's true, but it is part of a negotiating tactic. the republicans in the senate have failed this president and not been able to deliver even on a skinny repeal let alone the graham cassidy bill which a lot
6:08 am
of people felt was a great solution. it was very very close. this could be an opportunity to work with democrats which you would never get a repeal on so that was a central campaign promise for every republican and this president that would be politically problematic for him to go back to voters and democrats will never do anything that doesn't preserve obamacare. maybe as you said abbey gets republicans back to the table because otherwise chuck and nancy is going to make obamacare live forever which means we march towards single payer healthcare. you heard nancy pelosi she wants to take your guns. chuck schumer wants single payer healthcare. all is incremental wins they want to take to get to that. >> dean: well everybody send it home all the citizens are going we want something done. get something done. he's a deal maker who should he make a deal with the republicans or democrats? >> abby: we don't know exactly what his strategy is here but he's making it very clear as you said, dean, i wrote a book about solving problems and getting things done that's what i ran my campaign on and if it means getting at least something with
6:09 am
democrats, we're willing to go that direction. we'll see what happens here. i do want to bring you weather headlines we are following closely this morning starting with a fox news alert and here we go again. the gulf coast bracing for impact as tropical storm nate turns into a hurricane overnight. the category 1 storm already deadly killing at least 24 people across central america. now louisiana and florida issuing mandatory evacuations as the storm brings winds up to 80 miles per hour hurricane nate could make landfall in the u.s. as early as tonight. we will keep a close eye on that storm. and three men including an american now charged with plotting massive terror attacks right here in new york city. federal authorities able to stop the isis-inspired attacks targeting new yorks times square and the cities subway system this summer. one of the suspects even planning to attack music festivals and telling undercover agents he wanted to "shoot up concerts." pretty chilling when you think about what we've been through this past week. and iran's president is now
6:10 am
defending the controversial obama era nuclear deal saying there is nothing president trump can do to stop it according to iran media saying this. "we have achieved benefits that are irreversible nobody can roll them back neither trump nor 10 other trumps." harvard law professor joined us earlier on the show and here is what he said. >> iran is going to get a nuclear bomb in 10 years if they comply with the deal. north korea is only getting worse. we cannot allow this to continue , so there's going to be a storm. what the storm is nobody knows. >> abby: that's someone who knows a thing or two about iran. president trump is set to deliver a policy speech on iran next week. he and may decertify that deal we're going to have to wait and see. and ford is about to unleash its latest police vehicles. the michigan state police testing ford's environmentally friendly 2018 hybrid sedan making it the first pursuit rate of police car in north america. and good luck outrunning this.
6:11 am
ford's f150 police responder is perfect for off roading and tough conditions and can hit 60 miles per hour in under 60 seconds so it's like every guy's best friend. >> dean: that's quick. >> pete: i'm really concerned police vehicles are energy efficient. >> dean: [laughter] >> pete: what i look for. >> dean: i like that truck though. >> pete: well another story we're following this morning you remember unfortunately army sargent bowe bergdahl who desserted his fellow soldiers and walked off his base in afghanistan. we had michael waltz on the program earlier the special operator in charge of finding him, massive resoses were spent and ultimately now he's decided he will be pleading likely ap is reporting he will be pleading guilty to desertion, but he was claiming it wasn't and the other people claiming it wasn't desertion was the obama white house back in june of 2014. let's bring you back to that time. >> there was a lot of questions about how he originally was captured and whether or not he desserted his post. will he be disciplined or already paid the price? >> certainly, anybody whose been
6:12 am
held in those conditions in captivity for five years has paid an extraordinary price but that is really not the point. the point is that he's back. he's going to be safely reunited with his family. he served the united states with honor and distinction. >> pete: well the point is maybe he didn't serve the united states with honor and distinction. he desserted his post. pete you're a military guy. how does that make you feel? how would it make you feel if he was in your unit and you lost men going out there? >> pete: terrible and the mission you have is diverted to go find this guy and then when you do know where he is you know he's in the hands of the taliban and you trade him for five of the worst and where are those five guys right now? seriously? they probably gone back, they want to go back to the battlefield if they haven't already and now we have a desserter on our hands whose pleading he's guilty which we knew all along. it crushes morale, wastes resources and endangers troops. gets people killed. and that's why i think a lot of people are hoping this is theres a big sentence attached to this plea deal not just you know, slap on the wrist, bowe bergdahl
6:13 am
walks. he should pay for what he did. >> abby: a lot of people knew about that three years ago. so you hear the obama administration praising him and what he did over there, but the reality is at that time i think a lot of people had a clear sense. >> dean: then why do you do a rose garden ceremony. >> pete: the thinking behind that blows my brain out. i can't understand that if you know that and i think they did know that at the time it's just horrible optics and looks really bad now for sure. >> dean: at least barack obama is no longer the president. >> pete: there we go. well should republicans beware it about working with democrats on gun control? we are fired up about this one, next. >> dean: late night hosts taking a hard turn to the left. >> house speaker paul ryan said he thinks president trump's heart is in the right place on race relations. oh, sorry i misread that. his heart is in the white place. >> pete: to fallon to kimmel, is the politics hurting their

6:17 am
the american public values its freedom to protect itself and now you have schumer in the media to get this horrible tragedy and they want to piggyback their whole agenda to ban guns restrict law abiding people for the last 20 years, this circus on the back of this tragedy. >> pete: that was nra ceo reacting to democrats calls for increased gun control in the wake of the las vegas tragedy. >> dean: so does he have a point and should republicans respond? here to discuss is conservative filmmaker and the author of the big lie. thanks for joining us this morning. so we're hearing rumors in fact we'll put the four republicans up that already said they're
6:18 am
willing to discuss gun laws likely focused on this bump stock that we've all learned about ron johnson, john boone and lindsay graham what do you make of republicans talking about working on gun control legislation with democrats? >> well, normally in political debate if there was some give and take on both sides you can arrive at a compromise but that's not what this is about. this goes back to ram emmanuel's famous statement, never let a good crisis go to waste and i think that it's very clear that for the democrats this is the kind of first step in order to in a sense abolish the second amendment, so to me, you know when we look at constitutional rights the second amendment is not less important than the first amendment. it's not put second because it's secondary and so this is a kind of attack on our constitutional rights. its been brewing for a while and we should not allow the kind of stampede created by a single incident to allow us to buckle
6:19 am
so republicans can pass sensible gun control regulation on their own if they want to. there's no reason to open the door to the democratic crusade against the second amendment. >> dean: so you're saying pretty much don't work with the democrats on that because they will come after your guns. nancy pelosi said it's a slippery slope and so what? >> yeah, i mean, i think when we look at the second amendment, some people say well, it's there for hunting and so on. no it's actually there to protect us against government tyranny in other countries like venezuela where the government used these kinds of incidents in order to confiscate people's gun s so what happened was the only people who had the guns were the government, the state and they're now able to turn those guns against venezuela citizens so i think we should take a cautionary lesson from that and realize our second amendment rights are critical to the preservation of our basic liberties. >> pete: just you saying that the left will say well you're in favor of dead people. you're a heartless follower of the nra.
6:20 am
they use emotion, so powerful. >> well, i mean first of all the second amendment like the first amendment, it's not that these are amendments that have no exceptions at all. you can't shout fire in a crowded theatre, for example, but notice how carefully limited that is. you can shout fire in public. just not in a crowded theatre so only when there is imminent danger. now there's no imminent danger right now. basically what we need to do is complete this investigation. to me the more interesting question are the motives of this shooter. i mean imagine if this shooter had shot up a gay rights rally, there wouldn't be any shortage of speculation about what was motivating him but because he shot up a country concert suddenly everyone is really baffled about his motives. >> pete: interesting, thanks for your time this morning we appreciate it. >> my pleasure. >> dean: former first lady michelle obama says people don't trust politics, and she's blaming republicans. >> pete: go gop congresswomans had mia love is here to respond. >> one side, all men, all white, no wonder people don't trust

>> abby: well this week former first lady michelle obama lashed out at the republican party speaking at a conference for women and brought up the state of the union address saying this >> one side, all men, all white. on the other side, some women, some people of color. i look at that and i go no wonder, no wonder we struggle, no wonder people don't trust politics. >> dean: our next guest takes issue with those words. mia love is a republican congress woman from utah, mia, welcome. >> hi how are you guys? >> pete: good. >> abby: good from migrate state of utah. how does that make you feel? >> follow the sun.
6:25 am
follow the sun. >> abby: you are a black republican woman. how does it make you feel when you hear those words coming from michelle obama? >> well sadly, this is identity politics. i mean i don't know if you've noticed i don't know if she noticed but i am not white and i am not a male. you know, this is the way that democrats try to win elections instead of winning on the policies that actually help the american people and unite us. this is absolutely divisive language. it's not language that unifies us as americans. >> dean: congresswoman, when i see you i see a congress woman. when the democrats see you they see a black female. is that an improvement in the way they see the world that they segment by race and gender and class and creed as opposed to saying we're in this together? >> i think that it's incredibly ironic and hypocritical. i mean nancy pelosi will go out and actually recruit someone to try and take out the only black republican female that we have
6:26 am
out there, and wait for it. she's actually replacing me with a white male democrat, so again, this is about the narrative for them and about winning the elections through divisive politics, instead of uniting people. i don't fit in a box. i don't want to fit in a box that somebody tells me i have to fit into. i am a wife. i'm a mother. i'm a black republican who cares about america and cares about all people, so you know, i'm going to continue with my positive unifying language and try and do everything i can to help our future generations. >> dean: do you feel like along with the identity politics because they can't win on policy >> well if they could win on policy they work on policy. this is again we continue to hear this. why is nancy pelosi trying to continuously trying to take
6:27 am
people like me out? it's because you know, i try and do everything i can to bring people along to say that these policies are ones that list people out of poverty. the policies that i promote are the ones that tell people that in this country, no one is pre- destined to be poor. that if you're able to work hard , if you put your efforts, if you try and if we do everything to give opportunities that you take those opportunities and you run with them and independent people are the ones that give back and so we want everyone to be good contributing members of society. you take care of yourself, take care of your community. you're able to take care of your state and your country. >> abby: you should never be in a position where you feel like you have to defend yourself as a republican woman and african american republican congress woman. you're doing some great things. >> pete: great stuff. >> i can tell you i love the state of utah. utah has proven that they don't care about that. they were willing to send the
6:28 am
first black female republican and this state is just in credible example to i think the nation so hopefully more will come. >> pete: it's a good point. >> abby: i am with you there completely. mia love thank you for being with us. >> thank you. >> dean: thank you foreseeing former president and first lady stay in the game so long and be so political. >> pete: i'm older than you two put together. >> abby: we were just talking about george w. bush and how he's painting and doing rides to help veterans and different ways to lead the white house. well this vol untour firefighter and his two young children it's a horrible story killed by an illegal immigrant on a texas highway. the driver only got two years in jail for that horrific crime and the heart broken widow is fighting for justice. you'll hear from her you don't want to miss that it's next. >> pete: president trump's calm before the storm comment has everyone buzzing and freaking out, but what does he really mean? well dr. james mitchell the man who interrogated the #/11 mastermind is here with some insight just ahead.

6:34 am
monologue and almost their whole show on being anti-trump it's enough and i think there will be a backlash and people will say it's not funny enough, let's move on. >> abby: when you're alienating half of the country, when you're focused so much on making jokes about the republican party or the president himself, are you surprised by the ratings? it's one thing young people aren't watching tv as much, i'm certainly not up watching shows any more. i miss letterman. >> dean: you're still a young person. >> abby: but are you surprised we've seen a decline in the rating? >> dean: there's a reason for all of the different media. >> pete: a lot of white males pointing it out. >> dean: but when you're constantly being negative towards it, it's a one trick pony, enough already. spread it out and do something different and then it's really odd to see well like the thing on fallon with the thank you notes. that's she lost. hillary clinton lost. >> abby: but did people see this >> pete: we have that clip? watch it thank you notes to hillary. thank you, hillary clinton for
6:35 am
being the first female presidential candidate nominate nominated by a major party. for handling this difficult transition with more grace than i ever could have imagined. that being said call me day or night and i will be there with a gallon of ice cream and two spoons to tell you girl you are so much better than him. >> for always sticking to the issues even as people criticize you for superficial things like your hair, your wardrobe and your appearance. you showed girls everywhere that politics isn't a popularity contest because if it were, you would have won by about 3 million votes. >> standing up to critics who said that a woman couldn't be president because they would be too emotional, impulsive and un predictable. >> so glad we didn't end up with someone like that. >> dean: we didn't even need to add the music. >> pete: i'm uncomfortable right here and i'm next to you and i wouldn't be. >> abby: those are producers of the show by the way. these aren't just hillary clinton fans that got the opportunity to write thank you notes for her.
6:36 am
that would be one thing but you've got the music in the background. these are people that produce and write for the show. >> dean: but that's where you get it from. >> pete: but again, he wouldn't say it if he didn't believe it himself so i think he would try to move it back, so unleave aboutly divisive. i wish it weren't so and it may have a big bash lash. >> dean: at the end of the show we might play that music and abbey might write thank you notes to you. >> dean: that would be amazing i couldn't even keep a straight face. >> abby: i don't even need to write thank you notes. i think our audience has. >> pete: our in box is a thank you notes. >> abby: friends@fox news.com. >> dean: i'd love it it's great thank you. >> abby: turning to extreme weather we're following the gulf coast is bracing for another hurricane after it killed at least 24 people in central america. meteorologist lick are is here tracking that storm. rick what can we expect? >> rick: the storm moving really quickly that means it gets here quickly and will feel like there's not a lot lot of temperature to prepare so the rainfall totals will be kept down quite a bit. we've been talking about when
6:37 am
hurricane season is. here you go, we are right towards after the peak of hurricane season. we have one extra little kind of a secondary peak we call in october and that's right about where we are and then it drops down toward the end of november. that's the good news and the short-term we've got the storm right here. hurricane hunters have been flying in and out of this this morning with the winds now up to 85 miles an hour all of the heaviest winds though are to the east side of the storm, so it's the east side that will take the brunt of it. certainly from the storm surge but also the strongest of the winds, the west side only getting winds around 10-20 miles an hour. if the storm skirts to the east of new orleans that's good news for new orleans but mississippi coastline and throughout alabama and in the florida panhandle as well i'll tell you satellite imagery looking good if it has more time over water we could see it strengthen more and that is certainly a possibility officially they are calling for landfall tonight around midnight and that is at a category 190- mile an hour storm could be a little bit stronger than that so certainly need to prepare.
6:38 am
after that it very quickly moves up the shore or up the coast into the tennessee valley towards the ohio valley and across parts of the northeast. it will be gone off of the northeast by the time we get towards tuesday morning so a very quick mover that's good news we won't be talking about this for all that long. guys? >> abby: still hurricane seasonal the end of november. rick richmuth we'll keep a close eye on that thank you. >> pete: been a busy one. >> abby: a heartbreaking one. okay i do want to bring headlines we're following new disturbing details this morning about the man who went on a shooting spree at a congressional baseball practice this summer. according to a virginia state attorney's report james hodgkin son was "fueled by rage against republican legislators" and he also known for the case the field for weeks and fired nearly 70 rounds before congressman steve scalise's protection returned fire eventually killing hodgkinson. and illegal immigration was at a drivers license responsible for this car wreck that killed a volunteer firefighter two young
6:39 am
children ages four and 22 months and now the heart broken widow and mother is fighting for justice. the killer getting a sense of only two years behind bars courtney hacking is outraged about this and emotional as you can imagine speaking earlier on the show. >> they come here and they commit a larger crime and they get a slap on the wrist and get to go home so i want to see those laws enforced and stricter punishment. >> abby: she's an incredible woman. she gets her strength from her family as she has four more boys at home. our thoughts are with her and president trump signs a proclamation declaring monday as columbus day. our commander-in-chief encouraging all americans to celebrate the arrival of europeans to the americas, but not everyone is excited about it , antifa groups announcing a national campaign appearing to call on activists to destroy christopher columbus monuments this after several columbus statues around the country have already been vandalized and that leads to this story dr. seuss a
6:40 am
mural is being removed from a massachusetts museum because some people consider it racist all because of this chinese character depicted with chop sticks and other stereotypes. the mural will be replaced by another dr. seuss story. okay we'll have to leave it there. >> dean: dr. seuss replaced. >> pete: grew up on dr. seuss. couple decades before you. it's just shocking and the things they're trying to bring down it's a sad thing to see. >> abby: where does it end? >> dean: it's history. you can't just erase it. >> abby: well, coming up more of my exclusive interview with my dad and mom the new ambassador to russia what my parents say about their move to moscow and their message to all of those who serve. >> dean: and seven freaking out about president trump's calm before the storm comment, but what does he really mean? dr. james mitchell who interrogated the 9/11 mastermind is here with some insights, next i had to make a claim and all that? is that whole thing still dragging on? no, i took some pics with the app and...
6:41 am
filed a claim, but... you know how they send you money to cover repairs and... they took forever to pay you, right? no, i got paid right away, but... at the very end of it all, my agent... wouldn't even call you back, right? no, she called to see if i was happy. but if i wasn't happy with my claim experience for any reason, they'd give me my money back, no questions asked. can you believe that? no. the claim satisfaction guarantee, only from allstate. switching to allstate is worth it.
6:42 am
only from allstate. this this this is my body of proof. proof of less joint pain and clearer skin. this is my body of proof that i can take on psoriatic arthritis with humira. humira works by targeting and helping to block a specific source of inflammation that contributes to both joint and skin symptoms. it's proven to help relieve pain, stop further joint damage, and clear skin in many adults. humira is the #1 prescribed biologic for psoriatic arthritis. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal infections and cancers,

including lymphoma, have happened; as have blood, liver, and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure. before treatment, get tested for tb. tell your doctor if you've been to areas where certain fungal infections are common, and if you've had tb, hepatitis b, are prone to infections, or have flu-like symptoms or sores. don't start humira if you have an infection. want more proof? ask your rheumatologist about humira. what's your body of proof?

>> pete: president trump with a critic message for the media. oh, i guess that's not it is it? >> abby: that is the wrong video >> dean: it's live television and my first time. >> president trump: this represents maybe it's the calm before the storm. but the storm could be the calm before the storm. what storm, mr. president? >> president trump: you'll find out. >> abby: what storm, mr. president? so what could he really mean by that? joining us now to weigh in the author of enhanced interrogation , dr. james mitchell. doctor, no one better to help all of us try and make sense of what the president is saying here. he originally said it's surround ed by a group of general s that obviously advised him, what do you think he's referring to? >> well, i think that we shouldn't be reading too much into that. he's a showman, and he's a self- promoter and i think that his default approach is to create drama and interest and
6:45 am
have people wondering what's happening next, because those are skills that has helped him become rich and famous and very often, we default back to those things that we're good at and i think that's what's happening. the other thing that i thinks happening is that and i enjoy it because his election was like throwing a hand grenade in the swamp. >> abby: [laughter] >> guys like me we look at this and we're just delighted every time he opens his mouth because of the reaction. i think he's trolling the press too. you know, the weird thing about it is and it seems odd to me they don't seem to notice it is that he controls their focus. he controls their attention and he guarantees that they're not focusing on the sorts of things that he's working on. they're focusing on finding some way to discredit him and it has, you know he controls the focus. he controls the news. >> dean: interesting you say that, sir because look at this exhibit a. why did he say that?
6:46 am
>> it comes as officials tell cnn president trump is prepared to decertify the iran nuclear deal. >> it's incredibly wreckless and the bar is so low it's buried way underground but it's incredibly wreckless rhetoric to talk about the calm before the storm and laughing. >> you could see when he said it three seconds afterwards he literally had a smile. now if you're talking about a storm or fire, you're not smiling. >> he literally winged. we have to stop trying to analyze what he says and it's just tourettes of silliness when people catch their breath in this town, when they told their breath in this town, when he says something like that, you have a smile on your face. is that somewhat satisfying? >> no i just picture people in this town actually holding their breath, it might be welcome surprise for most of america. >> abby: [laughter] >> that's actually what i was talking about. if the world leaders are going
6:47 am
