colorado. ♪ ♪ i'm on top of the world ♪ steve: we're on top of the world but it's still cold outside. ainsley: it is cold. 6:00 came early this morning. we needed 5 more minutes. still getting some air. brian: one of the worst things that apple inventinged for me were the ear pods because i knew they were not going to fit with my lifestyle because they are small, easily to lose. they have a case they have ear pod. well, for two months i could not find them and this morning i found them in my suit. ainsley: haven't wore. brian: the case is at home the ear pods are in my suit in a secret pocket. ainsley: how many i have bought my own set 4? brian: what was apple thinking? steve: i opened the little
box the other day to take them out there is only one. it's the worse. $69 replacement. ainsley: and if you need a box without the ear pods i have three of them. what i do is take them off in the airplane and put them in my lap and stand up and i don't hear them fall to the ground. they are expensive but great. steve: indeed they're. so anyway. hope you have got yours in your possession and don't put them in the secret pocket. in the meantime let's talk about this. big story yesterday was about how over the weekend this story went viral u and as you know the young man and others behind him in those maga caps are from covington high school in kentucky. the initial story was that those kids got in the face of that native american. his name is nathan phillips. the man in the cap nic sandman. what we know now is apparently those young men were being tawngted by a
group called the black hebrew israelites. they were hurling insults at them and then when you see all the video you realize thought kids were simply shouting school chants at the suggestion of one of the kids and chaperone and then the man with a drum walked in and actually got up in the young man's face. brian: so the media jumped to the conclusions what these young men were doing and what young kids were doing and what they represented. put everything on its head. the facts have come out. apologies have come cascading in. but it hasn't stopped the threats from coming at these high school kids who were there just for a supervised demonstration. jillian: nic sandman the guy you see there standing his ground trying to diffuse the situation. the video has gone viral of two of his friends from the high school grant and sam. and this is what they had to say about this incident. >> there have been many threats against our lives. against our parents.
some threats include that we should all be locked in the school and burnt to the ground. the school being bombed. school shooting threats. it's really scary. a lot of negativity and the hate surrounding this event comes from people on social media doxxing people that were at the event. i myself wasn't even present. i have been docked on three separate occasions. this has led to a tsunami of hateful messages and threats and everything. there are real consequences for these actions. no one did their research and it's now showing. steve: keep in mind. hundreds -- i was reading this on news busters. hundreds of adults on twitter called for the deaths of these children who were wearing the maga hats and smiling in public. obviously they saw that video. they heard the kid got in the face of the native american who was beating the drum at the indigenous people rally and that was
terrible. as it turns out that was not the story. and brian, like you said, a number of people have taken down their tweets but others have not. we are going to talk about that in a minute. the president got in on that last night. he said look like nick sandman and cofing students were unfairly and early judgments proving to be false. smeared by media. not good. but making big come back. new footage shows that the media was wrong about teen's encounter with native americans. as of right now, they are looking into taking some down that initiated a lot of this uproar which was inaccurate. meanwhile rush limbaugh weighed in despite the apologies isn't it amazing where the mistakes always seem to got same way? >> this caused widespread condemnation of the kids. a whole lot media people piled on and cesspool of twitter got involved calling for them to be docked.
then they demanded that they be shamed and punish you had. school administrators at the kids' school said they would consider kicking them out of school. it's always targeted at republicans and conservatives. and the people, the adults who are supposed to be protected pile on without even taking a moment to figure out what actually happened. they're the ones who deserve the accolades in this whole encounter. ounce ounce one of the tweets that really caught my attention i cannot believe people tweet this kind of thing out was the guy who worked on disney's beauty and the beast twilight jack morrisey a hollywood produce producer covington kids should be thrown into wood chipper hats first and i will leave it at that with other things going on there. he said it was stupid and i shouldn't have done it he said i really didn't give any thought. who writes that and didn't give any thought?
steve: cnn bakari sellers deleted their tweet someone should punch sandman in the face. vulture one of the online services and supervisor the ine media his name is eric abret. i don't know what it says about me but i have truly lost the ability to articulate the rage, ann arbor heartache this makes me feel. i just want these people to die. simple as that every single one of them and their parents. he has been fired by his company. they say we apologize. in the meantime i saw that apparently some of the students are considering legal action. an attorney by the name of robert barnes tweeted out to one cnn cricketer who did take down a tweet. said good apology, more needed. don't want to get sue you had. retract. correct. do it now. brian: jill hamlin a chaperone mom there with her son will be live with us at 7:20.
ainsley: patricia eat ton and jamie lee curtis have taken a side on this. jamie lee curtis said she never should have commented on it. she wasn't there. there are two sides to every story she learned a lesson. patricia eat ton said apologies are welcome but the damage was done. when these kids try to apply to colleges or look for jobs they will google their names and this will pop up. brian: like the duke lacrosse kids. day 32 of the shutdown. so far today, one thing will be different is the senate will fold on the president's proposal that he put on saturday that you know will essentially get 5 point something billion dollars for the wall in exchange for a three year hold on -- three year hold for the daca kids as well as some others. it looks like they will get no democratic support. joe manchin is thinking about it we need a lot of the pain here. 10% of the tsa agents have called out sick. the delays have not been as bad as many have thought. now the national governor's association writing the president saying hey,
listen, we can't afford welfare payments for a million adults and 2.5 million kids. this is really -- children. this is really getting problematic u. steve: regarding the tsa absentee rate on saturday. nonetheless screen 1.78 million. only 6.9% of people in the tsa lines had to wait more than 15 minutes. they are telling people because of the potential delay show up a little early. meanwhile last night, if you were watching the stephen colbert show, the most famous member of congress who has been on the job just a couple of weeks sat down in the chair next to him. ainsley: are you talking about aoc? alexandria ocasio-cortez? eating ice cream with him. listen to this. >> those workers are furloughed and so, so the downside is that we're not able to get to work as much as we want to in the beginning. but the bright side is that it gives us a lot more free time to make trouble.
[laughter] [cheers] >> yeah. steve: she is very popular. brian: right. she is popular. she is more famous than nancy pelosi who calls the walls immoral and will not speak or deal with anything to do with the president's proposals until the government is reopen. senator chris coons says the same thing but the house is going to try pass legislation to reopen the government. the senate is going to pass something to do immigration. weave sit there and wonder what's going on possibly with the most vulnerable people who live paycheck to paycheck. wondering when this is going to end. ainsley: she spoke at mlk event and said the world is going to end in 12 years if the climate change is not exist. billionaires while people get ring worm because they don't have healthcare. brian: exactly. how many times i have said that? steve: busy day yesterday and busy day today. jillian joins us now with
news. jillian: if the world is going to end in 12 years i have a lot to do. brian: not a big rush but it's a rush. jillian: get you caught up on news we are following starting with this. the police officer is shot and killed trying to arrest a suspect in alabama will be laid to rest on friday. hundreds of people paying tribute to officer sean tuder lining the streets with american flags. the suspected killer marco perez is charged with capital murder. officer tuder spent three years with the mobile police department after searching in the alabama national guard. in a statement his family says quote sean loved his family and his country and knew this was a chance. he is our hero and a patriot. an american exmarine charged with spying in russia was found with declassified documents -- classified documents, excuse me me. he had clients containing state secrets. whalen was arrested in moscow last month accused of spying. his family sells he was there for a wedding. if convicted he could face up to 20 years in prison.

out. but then again, nancy pelosi and chuck schumer at some point they are going to have to realize all these people on our political left who are saying yeah, keep doing it they are going to have to say this has got to end some day. >> exactly. you know, senator mcconnell not just crack open that door, can he say all right, here is a seat at the table. let's financing this out. put that seat at the table and schumer and pelosi don't take it, then it's on them. right now trump and mcconnell are frankly making it to easy for the democrats saying it's our way or the highway. let's, you know, the majority of americans actually want our elected officials to find a compromise. i think this week it could be that moment. steve: alli nancy pelosi said i am a master legislator. legislate. one of the things you legislate you get a deal. to get a deal both sides wind up getting something. both sides don't walk away empty-handed. in this proposal that the president made on television on saturday the democrats are getting a lot of the
things they have wanted in the past. extension on daca. a lot of money for humanitarian purposes. but, they seem sort of flexible about we don't want to give him a nickel for that stinking wall. >> we work with a lot of folks along the border from law enforcement to mayors to business leaders and they tell us, you know what? putting up a big wall that doesn't really help them from a security perspective or from a trade perspective. so, we think if we're going to secure our border. let's put money at port of entry. that's where drugs are being smuggled. that's where the security threats are. we think we can figure out what the wall, the fence. let's focus on the ports of entry because that's where the threat is. steve: the president and his team say the wall or the border would be strategic and wouldn't be everywhere and law enforcement has said that they feel it works ali thank you for joining us today from d.c. >> thanks for having me. steve: let's see if membership comes to the plate today. meanwhile, he is one the greatest leader in world history. a new book is revealing side

source that i have been able able to mine. brian: at the age of 16, he had a vision he thought he was destined to lead england from the brink to success. he saw this happening. >> that's right. and all the way through the rest of his life, he had so many close brushes with death that he believed that he was especially chosen to be able to save the country. and, of course, at the time, people scoffed at this but then half a century later, after he first said this when he was 16 it was proved completely true. brian: he came up at a time people -- the world, right? >> until, of course, they failed to keep up their defenses in the 1930s and the nazis built up such a war machine they were able to force out off the continent. brian: he said picture yourself as the american people great youth who tread on all your sensibility,s perpetrators every sensibility of ill manner no who neither their age
reverence moves about his affairs with a good hearted freshness which may well be the envy of older nations of the earth. he was intrigued by us. >> he was fascinated. he came over here 16 times far more than any other british politician of the day. he loved americans and thank god he did. because he was half american himself. his mother was american. he managed, therefore, to create a proper alliance democracy and civilization. brian: he learned in india to drink without getting drunk and he also had some terrible self-obsessed parents. he had every excuse to be a loser and something to blame but instead he still worshipped his parents and man did he achieve. >> that's right. with the drinking thing. one of his friends said winston churchill couldn't have been an alcoholic no alcoholic could have drunk that much. but, yes, his american mother, she was born in brooklyn, was very unusual for an american mother because she took notice in her son and his father, was
incredibly disdainful. he carried on loving both of them throughout his life. brian: why do we still care about winston churchill. >> because of the life lessons. because of the way in which he was able to foresee things. to be incredibly brave, to learn from his many, many mistakes and to actually be so eloquent that he did could inspire a nation and indeed the world to ultimate victory. brian: some of you are saying winston churchill another biography. trust me this is like no other. you will just not have to call your friends three months. it takes a few thousand pages to get through. congratulations, andrew, on the best seller list for a reason. >> thanks so much, brian. brian: breaking news about that catholic school at the center of the confrontation on capitol hill. it's now cancelled school today and we are at the halfway mark of president trump's term in office. how will history judge him when it comes to issues like the economy and national security? we have a political panel here to discuss two years

the fact that he already alluded to over 248,000 jobs have already come back. we have over 600 companies that have said they are bringing more of their jobs back to this country. over we have billions of dollars repatriated. we see unemployment now across the board so a plus. ainsley: brian. >> a. fastest wage growth in a decade. job growth like nobody ever expected. this is confidence at record levels. i don't see how you go anything lower than an a on this one but i b steve will have. >> i will be happy to tell you. c. >> ainsley: you're as and bs are upside down. >> i don't think i will need them. ainsley: why the c. >> no problems with the economy in terms of jobs or businesses. i don't see the overall trajectory changing at all you from the obama administration. the big thing that is -- i have a problem with a lot of presidents is that the
deficit has grown significantly. >> that's true. ains. >> during a time. i understand if it's a recession and have to cut taxes and grow the self-sit that way or generate business and things like that deficit spending. there is no reason in a good economy to be blowing up the deficit and the debt. i'm giving him a c. ainsley: national security. all of you hold on your-to-your grades for national security. brian you say an a, why? rya.>> the president said he wanted to get tough on iran and he has done it get tough on russia. he has done that even though the critics haven't give him credit for that. fund the military. he has done the things and he has some surprises like some break throughs with north korea. is he holding our nato ally to the extent they said they would make. finally somebody is doing that hard to give him anything but an a. syria is the big question mark there. we seal to you that strategy plays out. first two years he has done what he said he. ainsley: steve why out d. >> two big problems with the president's national security efforts no strategy
or plan on any single one you can point. to say partially by design. i don't think so he wants to be held accountable. if he he had a goal or strategy you could say he met it he doesn't want that the other problem is he has attacked a lot of our natural allies nato, france, germany, south korea he has given total uncertainty in terms of his policies with north korea. speak of north korea, we just found out in the last 36 hours that there is a missile base that they didn't disclose to us. they think trump is a total joke and i have no reason why they wouldn't think. so they have gotten everything out of his relationship with him that they wanted. we have gotten nothing from him. ainsley: cathy, you don't agree. >> yeah u and he did not send billions of dollars under the cover of darkness as obama did with iran. and yet we have gotten more from north korea than we have given. unlike with the failed iran deal unlike with the failed paris agreement. this president has done so much. he is not bowing down.
people are actually respecting the united states. i love when i talk to various military personnel. they are encouraged about it now this mainstream media would never tell anybody about it but i love what this president is doing and i hope he continues doing it. ainsley: last topic. communication. hold up your grades. steve, you give him an f. i will start with you this time. why? >> i think presidency. i don't like it when he does it i don't like it when some of the democrats in congress do it. he sends out emails do it that way. do the same thing that every other president has done before him. don't turn into a reality show. this is not desperate housewives in washington, d.c. act like a president. >> he doesn't bow to the idol of political correctness. that's what people like. is he direct. people know when he speaks is he not speaking to the media he let's he speaking to them the average personal. yes i think he takes it too far. true. doing something other politicians are realizing. >> i love that aspect about him. is he a fighter. the american people have
been, especially on the conservative side have been wanting someone to fight versus most of our republican leaders who bow down at the slightest bit of provocation. president trump is teaching all of them how to fight. i love the tweet. he may not say it the way i say it that's called individualism. that's something that the democratic side cannot understand. is he an individual. that's how he's to say it i agree with everything he has tweeted. may not have said it the exact same way but i love what he is doing and i hope he continues. ainsley: will you all stick around this morning and we will bring you back to talk more 207 picks. jillian: we are following a story out of texas that we have been keeping an eye on. they believe they have found the body of a missing mother in texas. emily vanished more that two weeks ago after going to co-workers house to watch a movie. a body was just recovered in a creek that blooded flooded on the night she and. her car has not been found. she leaves behind a 7-year-old daughter a freshman democrat on the

tuesday, january 22nd in order to ensure the safety of our students, faculty and staff. all activities on campus will be cancelled for the entire day and evening. students, parents and faculty and staff are not to be on campus for any reason. of course, this all relates back to the video that you are watching right now. a lot of planned protests are expected to happen over at the archdiocese and in front of covington catholic high school making america great again hats. stopping on surrounding and chanting around nathan phillips, a naive american elder that you see beating on a drum. very differently here as we see more viral video starting to pop up showing these students being attacked by hebrew israelite groups. they say they were chanting in order to make sure that they can drown out those hateful slurs. again, those students that were expected to return to covington catholic high school this morning, they are no longer returning to
school. in the midst of all of this controversy. live in front of covington catholic high school back to you. steve: all right, cherise, thank you very much. ainsley: a former top lawyer acknowledging his personal involvement in a application to surveil then trump campaign aid carter page confirming other unusual steps taking in the fbi's russia probe. steve: according to unreleased transcripts released by fox news james baker the man right there in the center of the screen relied heavily on unverified anti-trump dossier. brian: what does it mean. looking at the impact fox news judicial an list host of liberty file on fox nation judge andrew napolitano. why is this significant to you? >> this is not something normally done by the general counsel of the fbi. if he were doing his job, he would say to them stay away from fisa. donald trump has argued the president has argued that
fisa, which has a low standard to get a search warrant, has been abused by the fbi it's easy to get a search warrant from the fisa warrant as opposed to a regular sitting judge where the standard is one of the constitution. under the constitution. get a search warrant to look at phone calls to follow them. you have to have probable cause of crime. a very high standard. you have to show not a dossier but actual evidence to a judgment. under fisa the standard is a lot less. the standard is has this person ever spoken to a foreign person to a foreigner? i could talk the to my taylor in midtown manhattan. it's the same warrant. one is easy to get. >> one is difficult to get. when the fbi can't get the more difficult one. they get the easy one. and that has corrupted them. and that has enabled them to gather evidence by unconstitutional means. that's what they did to the
president. steve: when you look at this transcript what we have seen. fox news has senile. it's a real eye opener. he admits that he was given -- he said it was very unusual. a top dnc lawyer gave him documents at the doj and the fbi and then when christopher wray came into the fbi he got reassigned to a different job. now we understand this guy is under criminal investigation for leaking to the media. >> it is obvious that there was an agenda on the part of people in the fbi to either cause president trump to stumble to appreciate him from entering office or get rid of him once he was in office. we keep getting snippets of this evidence. if they can do this to the president of the united states. they can do it to anybody. brian: cannot wait for liberties file today judge foxnation.com. beto -- >> this is not my proposal. this is our fox colleague
♪ ♪ steve: this past week was embarrassing week for some in the mainstream media as two of the big stories they talked about and covered extensively turned out to be false. msnbc and cnn spent 53 minutes and 20 seconds and the network spent over 19 minutes on the confrontation between those covington catholic high school students and native americans. that story coming after the network spent 27 and a half minutes on buzzfeed's report
said president trump directed michael cohen to lie to congress. impeachment mentioned in the report 179 times alone. mueller team released a statement saying the buzzfeed report was inaccurate. here to discuss what is apparent media bias is the senior news producer for the daily signal and visiting fellow at the independent women's forum easy for me to say kelsey hart harkness. >> why the judgment? >> the answer to that question is very simple. it is donald trump from the start. he decided to run for president i don't say that lightly. since he decided to run for president. members of the media have been on a mission to prove themselves right. and in the process, they starlighted to believe their own fake news. and what i think all the media needs to realize right now, especially in light of what happened this weekend is that fake news has real consequences. just imagine if there were
no hour long videos that could exonerate these high school boys, their lives could be ruined. imagine if the special counsel didn't come out and make this statement, i imagine many members of congress and the media would be pushing still to impeach president trump. fake news has consequences. steve: kelsie, when you look at it though, it seems like fake news, particularly these two stories, they both aim in one direction, don't they? >> absolutely. i think that's why a lot of conservatives and trump supporters have such an issue with the media. and in many ways this is proving president trump right when he calls the fake news the enemy of the people. these so-called mistakes only fall in one direction. and that direction is always in some way that is harmful to the president and his deplorable supporters. steve: there you go. kelsey harkness from the daily signal. thank you very much. >> thank you. steve: straight ahead.

a field trip for the march in rife over the weekend in washington, d.c. covington high school students were involved in that confrontation right there that went viral. nick sandman, the young man in the maga cap and nathan phillips the native american banging the drum, that was the image. it went viral. there were so many people who were incensed not knowing the story. there has been a complete turn around now that more facts from come out and who provoked whom now longer up for debate. ainsley: this is the statement from the high school. after meeting with local authorities. we have made the decision to cancel school in order to ensure the safety of our students, faculty and staff. there have been so many threats on twitter. some of them say they are being voxed and their families, they are calling their places of work and saying that their jobs could be -- the parents' jobs could be on the line all because the media got the story wrong. did not release the entire
video. people rushed to judgment. now the safety of these students is at risk and having to close school as a result. brian: much of this was the social media and it got more vicious. because it's so anonymous. it prompted two of the students sam and grant over at covington high school to get in front of the cameras. watch. >> there have been many threats against our lives. against our parents. some of these threats include that we should all be locked in the school and it should be burned to the ground. of the school being bombed. school shooting threats it's really scary. a lot of the negativity and hate surrounding this event comes from people on social media doxxing people that were at the event. i, myself, wasn't even present and i have been docked on three separate occasions. this toledo a tsunami of hateful messages and threats there are real consequenced for these actions. no one did their research and it's now showing. steve: when they talk about
doxxing. doxxing is when your personal information is published online. and they just mentioned, the school shooting threat that certainly probably went into the determination by the school board to cancel that particular school today. i said that, you know, the provocation no longer in doubt. because when you look at what happened. the initial story was the young people in the maga caps went over and got into the face of this native american who was protesting and banging on the drum. but then when you look at the video, he, the man with the drum nay than phillips approached them. the reason they were chanting, the school, just because 10 or 15 feet further to the east of them the black hebrew israelites focus group were hurling insults at the kids and so they were doing school cheers to offset that. and they got the okay from one of the chaperones and we have one of the chaperones with us. her son was there at 7:20.
so in about 15 minutes we will hear that side of the story. brian: black israelites have been screamed screamed at been there before screaming provoking and yell at these kids. yelling hey school shooters or whatever derogatory term you could think of think probably used. and that began. because that was not why they were there to begin with. >> well, when you look at the video. nick sandmann he said he was there to stand his ground and diffuse the situation. i'm sure he was elm wassed and didn't know what to do. he was getting his attention. the man was standing in his face and all of his friends were watching. this man demanded. this native american how saw come through the crowd and get in his face. is he in his 60's and doing this to a high school student. steve: but when you look at these images and you wonder why is this particular viral moment go so viral? have you got to figure because those young men were wearing maga caps. i talked with one of my friends last night. obviously it went viral
because they were trump supporters and people wanted to take him down. brian: all right. steve: you look at those images and number of people on social media who have made death threats against them that is a logical explanation. brian: we have a mom coming up in 15 minutes. six minutes after the hour. 32 days of government shutdown and there might be actually a vote in the senate. mitch mcconnell came out and said i saw what the president did saturday in consultation with jared kushner and the vice president. the president made his speech on saturday and his proposal. and with that they have legislation to put forward to break the shutdown and have -- actually have an immigration deal. so they need 60 votes. they have 53 republicans. joe manchin seems to be on the fence and we know what it will do. it will give them 5 plus billion for the wall in exchange for daca provisions and a few others. here is what the president
tweeted: he also went on to say and nancy pelosi really thinks walls are immoral. take up the 600 miles of fence that's already on the border right now because it's illogical and she doesn't mean it. steve: so much of this has been between nancy pelosi and the president. we actually had the executive director of the national immigration forum ali on with us an hour ago. the key person in washington to break this law jam is mitch mcconnell. how is he going to do today? that's the big question if the democrats do not keep the deal, he says the person who blame, the people to blame will be clear. watch this. >> senator mcconnell has an incredible opportunity to bring schumer and pelosi to the table to strike a compromise. seat at the table and schumer and pelosi don't
take it, then it's on them. trump and mcconnell are making it too easy for the democrats by saying our way or the highway. you know, the majority of americans actually want our elected officials find a compromise. i think this week it could be that moment. steve: sure. ainsley: that's what a compromise give and take. steve: everybody gets something. ainsley: absolutely. steve: moderate democrats we heard on television don't come to the table and put forth a good faith effort to negotiate an end to this and simply vote in lock step with chuck schumer. have you got to wonder why other than to not allow donald trump a win because, when you look at the deal that the president proposed on saturday, he gets some wall money although just about a quarter of what he asked for initially. and the democrats wind up with daca protections, humanitarian money close to a billion dollars. it's a win-win for both sides. if they say no. i'm sure people all across america as ali just said is
going to blame the democrats. brian: cost ago billion plus dollars a w week. we have been doing this 32 days. it's basically cost the amount of the wall to have the shutdown. ainsley: right. brian: that's how dumb this whole thing is. ainsley: seat record of the democrats when they all wanted the barrier and wanted some sort of a wall. barrier at the border. and now they are saying they don't want that they wanted it before. now they don't want it the president saying that's the one thing i want. give me a little bit. just give me a little bit of that and i will give you a little bit of what you want. that's called a negotiation and that's what most americans i think want. brian: they say they will not talk unless the government opens. of the president will not open the government unless they come to an agreement. why would he? he loses all of his leverage. ainsley: he already asked her if i open up the government, will you give -- can we talk about the wall in the next 30 days and she said no. steve: it's just hypocritical because the democrats have said they are for all the stuff that he wants now and now because he
could win support of this, they say no. oh, boy. brian: all right. jillian is here. at least she said she would be, to tell us what is happening in the news. jim. jillian: i'm always here when i say i will be here and always on time. following a number of stories this morning. the police officer shot and killed trying to arrest a suspect in alabama will be laid to rest on friday. hundreds of people paying contribute to officer sean tuder lining the street with american flags. his suspected shooter perez is charged with murder. he spent three years with the mobile police department after serving in the alabama national guard. in a statement his family says quote, sean loved his family and this country and knew this was a chance. he is our hero and a patriot. actor chris brown is detained in paris overnight accused of sexual assault. according to a police complaint the r and b star met his accuser at a club last week then invited her to his hotel.
two other people are also in custody. this is not brown's first run-in with the law. in 2009 he pleaded guilty to assaulting singer rihanna. thousands of federal workers will be back on the job today despite the government shut june. down. government employees will get paid for the next 30 days. everify employees will be back today they will serve in another capacity at dhs until congress approves funding for the program. so might call this divine intervention of the many people who picked the new england patriots to beat the kansas city chiefs this one is turning some heads. a pastor in maine put this on his church's sign two days before the game. it reads, quote: god doesn't have a favorite team but this pastor does. and he puts forward patriots 37 chiefs 31. it took overtime but that was the actual score. if he could tell us who will
win the super bowl then we could go to vegas. steve: he has already said that the patriots will win but he is not giving the score. ainsley: that's awesome. brian: over 50 million people watched, 46 watched. over 50 watched the other. that's incredible. was there anything that could bring the country to the television like that. football came back big time. ainsley: god doesn't have a favorite team i do. i'm the pastor. brian: he is allow you had. ainsley: you don't think that god cares who wins the game, right? brian: i'm pretty sure god let's the game just play out. ainsley: i think god is in everything. let us know what you think ♪ an. [angelic music] brian: let me know god knows who is going to win out world series. ainsley: he knows everything. brian: this hispanic pastor has been one of president trump's biggest supporters from the start. you probably don't know his story. he will join us live to tell us about the president's heart of passion next.

>> i especially want to thank you for calling this what it is, a humanitarian crisis. although some don't want to you to have a heart of compassion i know you as a man who does have this heart of compassion. it's genuine and authentic. the pastors that i'm here representing today salute you and thank you support from leading hispanic pastor down in texas. pastor has supported the president sips 2016 and has been a member of his hispanic advisory counsel. you might have not heard much about him in the media. pastor pena is a member of the white house initiative. you heard him at the round
table in a discussion with the president about a month ago. thank you for joining us, pastor. >> thank you, ainsley, for having me this morning. ainsley: you are welcome. tell us about that meeting with the president and why it was important for you to be there with him. >> it was important for several reasons. one of the reasons is there are many in the media who are saying this is a manufactured crisis all of a sudden multiple voices are saying that. and to bring truth to that misperception, many of us that are involved firsthand with the crisis need to speak to it because the untold human suffering taking place really has hate fevered pitch and it's been going on long before the president became president of the united states. in fact, barack obama called that humanitarian crisis. ainsley: what do you say to those folks what's happening in d.c. and the president
wants the wall and he is willing to give daca recipients something in return for that money and nancy pelosi saying no, as a hispanic who list in texas down there close to the border, what are your thoughts? it should be obvious to any reasonable person the criminal element openly and freely coming across our border where we have in effect open borders needs to be stopped drug trafficking to human trafficking the arms coming across making our communities more violent needs to be curtailed i don't understand why any reasonable person would not want to put a stop to that or somehow stop the flow of that coming so easily into our country. ainsley: um-huh. pastor, there was a poll that we were reporting on last week the mars pbs poll hispanics the approval rating of the president since the shutdown since december to january in december it was 31% and now
51% of hispanics approve of him. why is that? >> i think a variety of reasons causes that number one the unemployment record low among hispanic americans hispanic americans as a group have a tremendous work ethic. are generally very pro-life. pro-faith, pro-traditional values and if this president has lined up with those kinds of things it's become more and more clear that those are the kinds of values that he stands for that really are the bedrock of the hispanic community as a group as a whole. ainsley: okay. pastor thank you so much for being with us. god bless you. >> thank you for having me. >> socialism will be on the ballot in one state for the first time in decades. the new party that just got approved. plus, a catholic school canceling classes this morning after this viral confrontation in washington. one mother, who went to the

the reasons they were targeted and i think they were also targeted for what they stood for. steve: which is? which is christianity, the right for life and they were singled out and i believe partially because of the color of their skin they were targeted. ainsley: why did nick sandman. why did the native american choose him? why did he get in his face? what happened before that? >> we were all just gathered on the steps. you know, we had obviously heard the horrific insults that were thrown at our children by the black hebrew israelites and the boys were gathered on the steps. and they -- i don't know why nathan phillips chose nick sandmann. i think he would have
targeted anyone but maybe it was because nick sandmann had the courage to look this man in the face and he tried to diffuse the situation by not reacting. and by standing there respectfully. brian: you weren't there for any native american support or protest. you were there for what reason and why did all these other cross current get in your way? >> we were there for the march for life. it's an annual trip that that the covington catholic high school goes to. and we meet every year at the lincoln memorial at the end of the day to catch our buses. we were not there for any other purpose other than to attend the peaceful march for life which we did. brian: first people hit with you verbal barbs were the black hebrew israelites and what were they saying? >> well, we were standing
there and we looked and all of a sudden they turned their attention to our group and they were screaming horrible, horrible things that i will not repeat to our children, to children. not adults. they were screaming them at children. this continued. and the boys asked if they could do one of their school cheers because they wanted to drown out the hatred that was being said to them and one of our teachers said it was okay for them to do their cheer. we wanted to drown out the hate. the hatred message that was being thrown at our children. steve: right. so, online the initial reaction was look at these guys in the maga hats they are yelling at this native american nathan phillips who was banging the drum. that's not true. they were simply doing school cheers. you know, as a parent, i have got to wonder how you felt about in the initial hours after that went viral
the your and the diocese of covington put out a statement that said of your boys action they said this behavior is opposed to the church's teachings on the dignity and respect of the human person. the matter is being investigated and we will take appropriate action up to and including expulsion. why do you think the school and the diocese jumped the gun without knowing all the facts? because that made it worse. >> it did. and i don't know why they jumped to make a statement. and as a parent, and as a catholic person that has supported our diocese, i am very, very disheartened and saddened that they rushed to judgment by not supporting one their own schools and their own people and the diocese. i do not believe the school made that statement via administration. i believe it was made by the
diocese. ainsley: now that we know all the facts, we are all parents. some people watching are parents. i'm sure it was really difficult to know that you are there for the right of children that can't voice -- that don't have a voice and you are there for that march and you are growing christian children and you are working really hard to pay for private education. paying your taxes. and then people come up to young kids and they shout these insults at them. that has to be so hard. and then to see how the media didn't tell the full story and then the diocese releases this statement. is there -- how do you get on -- how is nick doing and how are all the other parents doing? the school had to be cancelled today because all the parents there are so terribly worried that someone is going to show up and do something to one of their children. i mean, as a mom, i wouldn't send my kid to school today either. how are you dealing with all of this? >> w scary. my son works. i have been nervous to have
him even go to his job because i don't know who is out there and what they are doing. and, my husband was going to follow my son to school this morning because we just don't know what the volatility of this situation is with these people that react and they don't know the full story. and it's very scary. and, it's just -- go ahead. steve: sorry about the satellite delay. real quickly, we have read some stories that perhaps the students and their families are considering legal action. given all the wrong information online. is that true? >> i have not spoken to anyone specifically about that or no one has, you know, told me anything specifically, i have heard rumors of that. but, i do not have any first-hand information about that. brian: jill, thanks so much for joining us and hearing this story it's still real
big. we will talk to you again soon. ainsley: maybe we can all learn a lesson from. this thank you so much, jill. >> yes. ainsley: god bless. steve: coming up on this tuesday many of you are asking about our own bret baier "special report" there he is with his family a couple days ago. bret and his family in a bad car accident yesterday. they are okay though. we just heard from them and we will share their message after the break.

climb out of the flipped car. ainsley: he says thanks to the first responders and montana naps highway patrol, we made it to the hospital quickly. he said because of them we are very grateful to all of those who helped us out, he said. my advice to everyone is always wear your seat belt and to count your blessings every day. i tweeted this out as we left the hospital banged up but alive. brian: bret's tweet reading, quote. he goes on don't take anything for granted, every day is a blessing. and family is everything. it's always good to remind yourself of that before something does it for you. #count your blessings. steve: the news out of montana they were involved in a car accident. it was substantial accident. but, the family, pictured there. i believe they took that photograph in montana on saturday. they are okay. they are going to be okay. ainsley: bret, we are thinking about you and we love you and amy and the boys. god speed. get well soon and we are so grateful that everything is okay.

history. socialism does not work and i'm here to tell you it does not work. i'm a refugee from that nonsense. socialism is based on jealousy and kind of class envy. you've got it we don't. i want it. give it to me. i'm going to take it now. that is socialism. it absolutely does not work and there is nothing moral about that. let me ask you this, if we would have taken all the money off the billionaires, the government had taken it for itself, stripped them of that wealth and got it for themselves for the government. would we have a dynamic full employment economy? no, we would not. would we have a technology sector that rules the world really making america high tech flies do business? no, we would not. we would have the socialism that has failed in europe, that's nailed venezuela for heaven's sake and failed just about everywhere in the world it would not be moral. it is not moral to seize
someone's private wealth. it's not. that's not the american way. steve: stuart, you would not have so many people working so hard to make a lot of money if we were in a society where society owns the factories and owns the businesses and everything is for society. >> precisely. what fascination about ring worm? what? where did that come from. moral to have society people get ring worm because they don't have access to public health. we all have access to public health. for example. where did this ring worm thing come in? i just don't get it. ainsley: how do we get to this point i'm signature here thinking when you go to europe and they close the shops and they take naps you think oh, wouldn't that be nice? no, it wouldn't. it's wonderful to work hard. it's wonderful to have a shorter weekend and work monday through friday and look at your bank account and know where you used to be and where you are now. >> millennials have not learned the lesson of history. they do not understand the link between capitalism and individual freedom and responsibility.
that is the american snl and it's a good one. don't mess with it. brian: also don't mess with her because she is a power player on the left. in fact, any democratic nominee will be kowtowing to her and woulding her trying to get her on their side. she is almost a kingmaker now. a poll done democrats when asked would you consider her for president if she was older and eligible 74 percent said yes they would consider. 17 percent said they strongly would consider her and yet, she is two programs that have national interest the green program and taxing 70% for people who make over $10 million. like the person she was talking to anderson cooper. >> i think we should have a debate here. if millennials favor socialism and aoc is leading the democratic party way out there to the left. let's talk about this and talk about the history of socialism. let's talk about 70% and 80% tax rates. let's talk about this green agenda which will spend trillions of dollars in bound fossil fuels. let's talk about it is that

christopher columbus of course did some reprehensible things and immeasurable impact on mankind and to ignore that because did he some bad things is counter intuitive. not what history is about. also ironic to point out this happened on mlk day in the day on mlk day a day when we as americans look back on the incredible life of a man who changed our life for the better. also we look back on a dark time in our history not to enjoy it but to learn from it and to look back on how we can improve as a country. we look back on dark times so we can move forward and never go there again and you don't modify forward as a country by having a revisionist form of history. brian: christopher columbus. he brought christianity to this continent. >> and christopher columbus was a man who had the endorsement of the pope. this is a catholic university. columbus was a guy that for centuries was held up as a hero of the catholic church because of what he did to spread the religion. of course did that but was a hero of the church for centuries. and this is not anything
new. we have covered it at the leadership i object substitute campus reform how universities at pepper dime they removed al statue of columbus. countless other universities changing columbus day and calling it indigenous people day. goes on where people will start erasing other important figures of our history because they did horrible things. brian: what he did as an explorer, fighting the odds to do so was like going to the moon today in the 60's only more dangerous. that's how-that's what he accomplished. doesn't mean is he perfect by a wide mark. but i didn't think perfect people all had to be on statues. now we're going to become a nation of pedestals. cabot, thanks so much. >> thanks, brian. brian: meanwhile, coming up straight ahead, president bush making a push for border security shooter time ago. we will discuss that. one jockey goes head over horse during a race wait until you see how it ends. >> incredible recovery. d.

popular. steve: thank you very much for joining us. hour three of "fox & friends." if you have been listening to us talk about the story about the kentucky keith lick boys who were involved in the confrontation at the lincoln memorial couple days ago, yesterday we detailed how the initial reaction to it, turns out it is all wrong. turns out the man scream right, nathan phillips, got in the face of covington high school students. there has been such outpouring after initial online responses. so many people called for death threats against those children and against their families and fire their parents and stuff like. with so many threats out there, the school sent out an email and voice mail this morning canceling school today because of all the concerns. ainsley: that's right the statement said after meeting with local authorities we made the decision to cancel school in
order to insure the safety of our students faculty, staff. brian: a misperception about a story in the media over course of 48 hours, toot taken i cannily changed the country when you look at buzzfeed, certainly changed the lives of students. hopefully a lot of people making quick judgment on things as they appear to you. sam and grant are two students whose lives were adversely affected by the entire incident because it was misportrayed. they took to youtube yesterday to talk about what they're experiencing. >> there have been many threats against our lives, against our parents. some of these threats that we should be locked in the school, burned to the browned. the school being bombed. school shooting threats. it is really scary. a lot of negativity and hate surrounding this event comes from people on social media doxxing people that were at the event. i myself wasn't even present and
i have been docked on three separate occasions. this led to tsunami of hateful messages. >> there are real consequences for the actions. no one did the research and now it is showing. steve: i reading online the blaze every initial out let who pushed story was wrong, where the two young men, one buy wasn't even there, talked about how their families have been threatened and identities revealed. that is known as do x-ing. ainsley: addresses on line and placing for their parents. our parents could be fired. there could be major consequences because of this. brian: meanwhile the president of the united states tweeted in, nick sandmann and students of covington are symbols of fake news and how evil it can be. they captivated attention of the world. they will use it for the good to
maybe bring people together. it started off unpleasant but can end in a dream. ainsley: jill handlin she was a chaperone for the school. she said what it was like to be on the steps. it was very scary. >> it is scary. my son works. he, i have been nervous to have him even go to his job because, i don't know who is out there and what they're doing and, my husband was going to follow my son to school this morning because we just don't know what the volatility of the situation is with these people that, react and they don't know the full story and it is very scary. steve: she was on with just about an hour ago. she was also saying that her, the kids, the boys were targeted in part because of their christian beliefs because they were wearing those maga hats. what is scary as well, a while a
number of prominent people, blue checked people on twitter taken down their tweets that inaccurately accused those young men of doing something inappropriate, there is still a lot of people out there who are making inappropriate threatening comments against the kids on twitter. jack dorsey has not taken them down. that is just wrong. ainsley: one of them, jack, different jack, jack morrissey, a hollywood producer, worked on "beauty and the beast" and "twilight," disney film, he tweeted out could covington kids should be thrown in a wood chipper. he said he didn't give it any thought and that was stupid tweet. you didn't give it any thought? you should be giving it some thought saying kids should be thrown into a wood chipper. they're protesting, and the right of life and people are getting in their faces.
mom said, the other group, what was the name of the group? brian: black hebrew israelites. ainsley: they were saying such insulting things. if you read the articles, we can't say it here, it is morning television, some of the insults. brian: patricia heaton, famous actress, young people will have the smears follow them through their life. every time they proffer their resume' with the word covington anyone, whoever has or ever will attend that school. the damage is incalcuable. those who perpetrated this destruction, no matter how unintended still at their job with nary a consequence for reckless behavior. i would say this. i would not say anything she says is wrong. look at the way the lacrosse kids bounced back when they were wrongly accused. a lot of them, the public sentiment changed so dramatically. duke didn't suffer. lacrosse team didn't suffer. the one who suffered was the
coach who was fired unjustly. ainsley: how did get it to that point? how did it escalate to this point? i want to see whole video. don't pass judgment before you see the whole video. steve: 72 hours later we know the whole story. it's a lot different than from the beginning. as developments warrant we'll talk about this. meanwhile the president tweeted moments ago about the government shut down, down in day 32, without a wall or country, our country can never have border or national security. with a powerful or steel barrier crime rates and drugs will go down substantially all over the united states. the dems know this but want to play political games. must finally be done correctly. no cave. the president second time in a week he said he will not cave. the ball is in mitch mcconnell's court, essentially he will bring up legislation starting today to move through the u.s. senate what the president proposed on
saturday. essentially it is close to $6 billion for some sort of a wall or divider and it is a daca protections for the next three years, something the president wants and republicans want and something democrats want. that is called a compromise. brian: 800 million in humanitarian aid. 805 million in new drug detection technology. 2750 border patrol agents. this is what democrats agree to. they say they will not even entertain it until you open up the government. keep in mind, getting a little desperate from the people. national governors association wrote a letter to the president says, running out of funds to pay federal welfare benefits used by a million adults and 2.5 million children. only 60% of the workforce of irs is there. tsa has 10% of their staffers calling out. ainsley: senate votes. they need seven democrats to come on board. republicans need 60 votes. whether or not they have that, we will see. joe manchin said he maybe would come over.
are there enough? brian: no, there isn't. we need them talking, you can work it out. you heard commonality. right now, they're afraid of going and crossing nancy pelosi, who says, no vote until you open up the government. ainsley: look at that in front of brian. 32 days. a long time. steve: who will blink? the president laid down the market again. he says he will not cave 8:10 in new york city. jillian joins us with news out of moscow. jillian: a fox news alert out of moscow. a russian plane hijacked on its way to moscow. officials say an unidentified man ordered the crew to divert the flight to afghanistan. the pilot safely landing the aircraft in russia shortly after takeoff. it is unclear if the reported 76 passengers and crewmembers are on the plane or if the suspected hijacker was armed. any new information we get will pass along to you. turkey is launching an international investigation into the murder of jamal khashoggi
