♪ >> we are going to confront the national security crisis on the southern border. i will be signing a national emergency. we are talking about an invasion of our country with drugs, human traffickers. >> congress should have stepped up. >> democrats colony manufactured crisis which means these are people in denial. >> new details about what happened when a man described as a disgruntled employee shot his way through a warehouse. 6 people dead, 5 wounded. >> we know this is what they do every day.
>> trying to walk back those comments claiming 25th amendment talks were taken out of context. >> it was simply, rod raised the issue. >> amazon's decision expose the party's other reputation. >> 20,000 jobs you will no longer have. >> you are just anti-amazon? ♪ >> come on, enjoy. this saturday morning. jillian: a beautiful song. rob: i would not say that, it rocks. we have some strong beats. no idea what is coming in on the show ever.
being on the couch with you -- >> griff brought me a gift. he brought me a map from the caravan. an authentic caravan map like the real thing, where they are headed. big arrows from griff. in a war zone. a prize sort of trophy. you are looking at where they are going to go, across from texas, they may have gone to the east. a battle map. and of course that map ended up being a national emergency declaration because the president was not getting the money requested for a wall. to give some context the wall is going to be where we have seen the heaviest. >> yesterday in the rose garden,
the president came out and said i'm signing this bill. i don't like it, i will sign it but at the same time i am declaring a national emergency because of what is happening on the border, here was the president yesterday in the rose garden. >> we are talking an invasion of the country with drugs, human traffickers, all types of criminals and gangs. when you listen to politicians, particularly certain democrats they say it all comes through the port of entries. wrong. they say walls don't work, walls work 100%. nancy nozick, chuck nozick, they all know it and the only reason we are up here talking about this is the election. this is one of the ways they think they can possibly win, by obstruction. we will have a national emergency and we will then be sued and we will end up in the supreme court and hopefully get a fair shake and win in the
supreme court. >> it was an honest moment going through, i am ready for it, we are going to get to the supreme court, a lot of people asking where the money will come from and we will let you know, $1.375 billion in dhs appropriations from the bill, dod counter drug support, 3.5 billion military construction budget, 600 million from the treasury department. >> i love that even though it is the smallest number, that is el chapo. the treasury department put out a press release saying at least some of that 600 is el chapo money. >> ted cruz was one of the first who said we should get this money from el chapo, he is probably sitting there saying well done.
>> this is what conservatives refused to do for a long time, they've been good at groveling at the table and hoping to get a good deal. there are people concerned about national emergencies, if you believe this is an emergency, the president does, his moments with the angel moms with the most powerful part of the press conference when they talk about they understand what is going on and why the problem exists, he said this will happen and i will make sure it is constitutional in the process. >> i don't know he had a choice. he didn't like the original bill, he rejected that, you had the government shutdown, people say he will take the heat for this and you can't have a permanent shutdown. at this point he had been saying a national humanitarian crisis,
drug trafficking, human trafficking, if you make that your ctr. point i don't know how you followed through, i have to shift this money around, it is a crisis i've been talking about for a long time at the democrats challenge it, this is the only way he could fulfill a campaign promise. mike: trump was sued over his national emergency declaration less than 6 hours -- the national emergency declaration, the governor taking pride for doing that announcing a lawsuit over blatantly illegal national emergency, judiciary seeks hearing on emergency claim. for our viewers the national emergency act was established in 1976. never before has it come under the heavy scrutiny we are seeing now. the national injunction from one judge and one circuit to stop the prerogative of the executive. i'm sure it will be the ninth
circuit but this will be challenged and they will issue a stay and it will go to the supreme court and determine like they did with the traveled and whether it should happen. it seems a little out of order. we will have a guest today. does it make sense for one judge to have that prerogative? he wasn't elected. the president was elected, congress can check the president. one judge and one district court. pete: maxine waters, ninth circuit, is in california. california, she is rallying the troops to stand against this emergency declaration. >> it's time for everybody to stand up. all hands on deck, to refuse this president these fake emergency powers he would like to have. i'm urging everybody to get together, rally in every community across the country all
this weekend, send a message to washington dc, no, mister president. we not going to allow you to do this. >> trump is lawless, they defend sanctuary cities, the same people the defendant president obama on daca. doctor david hansen remembers how obama's actions went through it nobody on the left cared. >> barack obama was not going to get a 2 thirds majority, just changed the nomenclature on the iran deal, and dreamers. it is a little dramatic to say the constitution is in danger. pete: it was not a formal
national emergency. the treaty ratified by congress. it was done deceptively with a bunch of side deals and the cash we didn't know about. that is an honest question. you can't move the money. it wasn't appropriated. brian: you are going to be told all this weekend into next week that the president declared a national emergency when he should not have. the soundbite, he may have hurt himself but the point is if you talk to border patrol officials and i spent the last year of my life with they will tell you we are in an overwhelming number of legal crossings, four times the amount we see last year and it,
because they are family units. that is why the soundbite is so good but at some point donald trump could win profiles of courage for take the heat he is in fighting for that. share make this isn't what president obama did with daca. that was in deciding he didn't want to enforce federal law and wanted to exempt a group of people. using a national emergency -- don't correlate the two things. it is very different. we will check headlines for you this morning and begin with a fox news alert. gunning down 5 coworkers and injuring 5 police officers during the shooting rampage. the 15 year employee opening fire, police rushed inside the action plan. gary martin killed during the shootout, all officers in stable condition. we have a live report from

to washington tonight. a mailman is retiring with a perfect after 69 years on the job. in 1949, 21 years old, utah coworker said the package, always making his delivery in bad weather or car trouble. he was honored for his dedicated service with the us flag and postal artwork. pete: not even close. no comment on that. brand-new comments from deputy director of andrew mccabe, >> the attorney general is very concerned about the president, his capacity, and about his intent at that point in time.

here is former assistant us attorney andrew mccarthy. good morning. what do you make of this? amazing interview. >> what it does is highlight what we heard months ago. mccabe is trying to sell his book. 60 minutes is hyped by cbs but you have a situation where you have two sub cabinet officials having a serious conversation about a potential mechanism for removing the president from power. it isn't a lawful mechanism and these two characters don't have the authority, they are not cabinet officials, by the 25th amendment's own terms they could not have invoked it themselves. griff: when they talk about removing the president of the united states, that is a pretty
serious event. >> do you believe congress should pool rod rosenstein on the hill to learn more? >> i thought he should testify for a long time not just about this but a lot of things. i really think it is not that hard as i have been saying for over a year now to understand what happened. rosenstein wrote a memorandum that was used as the explanation put out by the administration for removing fbi director comey. he expected to be brought in for it because if you read the memo, all this stuff about how the only bipartisan consensus in washington was comey overstepped his bounds in the hillary investigation and needs to be removed. he thought this was a bipartisan moment to be praised for and what happened was he ended up being roundly criticized by
democrats. when the president removed comey they saw an opportunity to portray that is obstruction of justice. suddenly rosenstein who has never been criticized by anyone before is taking the arrow and he needed to prove himself to those people he has been pleasing all these years so he wanted to show him he was on the p. let's talk about removing the president, the 25th amendment, maybe somebody firing up to collect evidence on which you will need to because you are talking about the 25th amendment. then finally, what did he do at the end of that period? he appoints robert mueller as the special counsel even though they don't have a criminal predicate. griff: is this evidence that these disgraced fbi officials are succeeding in trying to push donald trump out? >> i don't think there was ever
a prayer they were going to be able to pull this off. what is is an indication that for a very long time, they were trying to make a case on trump and there was political motivation behind it. griff: thank you for joining us, have a good saturday. beto o'rourke is willing to tear down the existing border wall. the democratic hopeful is back. >> see which party needs and if it makes sense. >> senator gillibrand throwing her head in the ring. we will ask tom home and what he thinks. and live from daytona international speedway with a preview of the daytona 500 coming straight ahead. ♪ it's time for the ultimate sleep number event on the

national emergency. >> we are going to confront the national security crisis on our southern border and we are going to do it one way or the other whether it is $8 million or $2 million a 11/$2 million, we are getting it done because we have an invasion of drugs, invasion of gangs and it is unacceptable. shabbaty here is tom home and. this is a very controversial decision, trump taking heat from the left and some on the right. what do you make of the decision to declare national emergency? >> something a lot of people don't understand. there is terrible language in here and 7 to 10 days, to try to change the language that i will think would entice more illegal immigration. on the hill into the white house, democrats, the cr has to start in the house, they had the
president in a corner, either sign this terrible bill or shut the government down. he chose the smartest way, i will sign it, take executive action, declare an emergency and try to fix it, this president is on his own, do the right thing for the american people. >> they wanted him to sign bad ideas. >> funding ice for less, unless they move money around, illegal immigration is going up. that doesn't make sense. what really angers me, parents and sponsors cannot be held accountable. criminal organization, put her child in the hands of common organizations and they could remain in the shadows. up to this point they worry
about hhs and being held accountable. what this does is every sponsor in the country, they are afraid of ice action, now i can bring my child so this gave me amnesty. it gives me protection from enforcement of any kind, no prosecution. two things. that will increase the ways to turn this country so the hypocrisy of the democrats, don't want to hear another word about family separations when families are separated. they just wrote legislation to put children in the hands of common organizations. that is ridiculous and worse than anything this administration has done. jedediah: i got to ask about the race to the left. beto o'rourke and kirsten gillibrand saying they would tear down the border wall. i want to hear reaction. >> if you could, would you take
the wall down here? >> absolutely. >> the proposal from beto o'rourke to -- he was talking about el paso. good idea, bad idea? >> i would see which party means and if it makes sense i would support it. >> they have to run in a general election. it is insanity. >> they've gone so far left, the best thing that happened this administration, most american people understand. every place they build a wall, every single place they build a wall, has decreased. as a native new yorker she is an embarrassment in new york, she will change her mind tomorrow. he used to be pro-immigration enforcement. running for senator, out the window. when she ran in midterms, elected to the senate seat. that lasted 60 days.

these tax incentives, $3 billion, you get $27 billion back. the industry has been beat, the foundations of the finances and tax revenue in the city, that industry is shrinking. technology is growing, they missed out big time. jedediah: she seems to imply we are going to give $3 billion to amazon, just invest in some ways in school. it wasn't just sitting there. it is a tax break off of amazon, they need an economic slide. >> i was wondering what the basic tenets of their mathematical thinking because it is not in the bank, you don't have $3 billion to spend right now. amazon is not coming here. it is worth 21/$2 billion budget shortfall at this point. we have a statement from amazon i want to read and get your

national security crisis on our southern border and we are going to do it one way or the other we have to do it. jedediah: jillian turner in washington with how democrats are focusing. >> reporter: just a few words in the rose garden, the national emergency, most hotly debated and contentious issue over the past few weeks is off to the races. >> i will be signing a national emergency that has been signed many times before. it has been signed by other presidents. >> reporter: there may not actually be an emergency. >> i didn't need to do this. i would rather do it much faster. i have already done a lot of walls. >> reporter: the fact he is using the emergency to circumvent congress on appropriation and pulling money
from the nation's military drew the eye of nancy pelosi and chuck schumer. both of them quick to accuse the president of fabricating a border crisis, stealing funds from the nation's military and making america less safe. they say this is a coward wrapped by disappointed president who go is outside the law to fail -- do what he failed to achieve in the legislative process. the president is not above the law. congress cannot let the president read the constitution. here is what donald trump will get the $8 billion he wants for the wall. he will get $1.4 billion from the department of homeland security, $2 billion from the pentagon counter drug support program, $3 billion from dod's military construction budget and $600 million from the treasury department. this will continue to get hashed out in coming weeks as he admits himself but in the interim he avoided another government shutdown.
jedediah: one thing he will get is a compromise report, the debate will be unconstitutionality. a big debate all about the border. and running against the party, talk not just about tearing them down. >> before the debate starts the lawsuits are coming fast and furious. the emergency declaration in 6 hours, la times, colorado to sue over national emergency declaration and blatantly illegal national emergency, and judiciary chairs, the hearing on emergency claim that the judiciary chair, gerald nadler, you will hear a lot from him
this year. jedediah: that is why trump came out right away. he laid that out. the way he did it was like this. was we are in for, the second he did this he would get lawsuits the folks on the left saying he loves this lawlessness, the same folks who support sanctuary cities and accused president obama of overreach with daca. he was prepared for this and backed into a corner. i don't like the spending bill he signed but don't know what else he was going to do, shut the government down again which did not work. the fact of the matter is at the end of the day it is a national emergency. jedediah: griff: regardless what the president did, the outrage of the mainstream media. >> donald trump set to declare a national emergency over the border wall bypassing congress
in an unprecedented move. >> donald trump was to take action that could cast our 230 year are the system of checks and balances in government. >> when crisis averted, another one started. >> reality provided by the us government statistics, apprehensions, 76%. >> federal law gives the president wide latitude to declare national emergency even for something that is not really a crisis. griff: you said that. all those people in the video are reading teleprompters. in case you don't do tv they are all reading teleprompters, someone wrote that and they are reading it. jedediah: in parentheses it says armageddon. griff: we keep hearing in that report and the ap wire, down from 2000. here's the reality. from this time last year, there's been 109,000 across the border. it is more than 220,000 as of last night.
what is different is it is overwhelmingly a crisis of family units, women and children who have not dealt with it and it changes the dynamic. if you are a border patrol agent, it takes more time, there aren't enough places or beds. you are not being totally honest about the debate. jedediah: where was the panic when it came to other presidents like jimmy carter declared two? ronald reagan six, george hw bush five, bill clinton 17, george w. bush 13, barack obama media's best friend, 12, donald trump four. this is all political. the issue of immigration, democrats dug their heels in this, they feel if they give trump this win, allow him to admit is a humanitarian crisis which is the same thing democrats were saying for years, nancy pelosi and barack obama, he military crisis but if they
give it now -- griff: they don't want to hear from the experts. griff jenkins is an expert. the insight you have is unlike anyone. griff: on this issue. pete: at the border patrol, ran the whole thing, democrats play identity politics, listen. >> this is part of the frustration for those of us from a law enforcement or security perspective. how many more statistics do we have to provide? how many more angel families have to stand in front of individuals before they finally say okay, this is real? just incredulous, driven on identity politics. the experts have spoken, both on ice, border patrol, cdp and told
congress what they need to protect our borders, for the security and safety of this country and they have not just ignored it, they have absolutely discounted everything they have said. pete: those angel moms stood up to tell me it is not a crisis, the left uses emotions so powerfully and so often. jedediah: the obamacare signing. pete: those pictures and those mothers, important and powerful. pete: it is forcing democrats to come out and say what they believe which often is completely absurd because beto o'rourke saying tear down the wall. >> if you could, would you take the wall down here? >> absolutely. jedediah: following up, kirsten gillibrand saying she would support the tearing down of the border wall. >> what about a proposal from
beto o'rourke, he was talking el paso but the idea of dismantling some of the wall. >> i could look at it and see which party means and why and if it makes sense i could supported. pete: i would challenge senator gillibrand or beto o'rourke, the heaviest trafficked sector where 5 miles of fencing will be billed, spend 3 days on the border alongside border patrol. kirsten gillibrand, just three days and maybe one day where they are fighting over the number of beds so that they see from start to finish the entire operation and then make the decision to take down existing wall. the fact is in the rio grande valley you have 55 existing miles of border, 360 miles of river in mexico. in that area on the west side, almost 91% of illegal crossings
where there is no wall, less than 5%. griff: you are talking about facts and real things, kirsten gillibrand has been on both sides of every issue for ten years. then double down is go further. this is inevitably where the debate has to go. trump is for the wall, they are not just against the wall, they have to be for tearing down the wall. imagine the debate in the presidential cycle, i am pro wall, i went to tarrytown. jedediah: how hard left everyone in the democratic primary has gone. they shift back to the center for the general election. sitting back, not saying anything. pete: we want to hear from you all morning long. griff: we want to give you some headlines. jedediah: two men released from police custody after being questioned in the alleged attack

it. >> i know someone who will be fired up about this. we have got dan bongino, fox news contributor, offer of spy gate, the attempted sabotage of donald trump. i know that you're fired about this, what do you make of declaration of national emergency and flood gates have opened up not only from the left but some right on as well? >> listen, the bill was a bad bill. he was boxed in by relatively weak republicans and democrats up on the hill who have given up on america entirely. one thing that they are missing, i'm not sure that democrats understand how badly they got wrecked on this, wrecked, listen here. here is what he did. he's good at this trump, he's good to finding ways around these people. he did this thing with the
funding on the border where he did it sequentially, but the time he gets to national emergency funding, but the time he even gets there, he will already have spent money, 600 million, perfectly obtained legislatively and also money from the military construction budget, the mil con budget obtained legally. now the sequential part matter because by the time he gets to 3 billion plus there, the wall is already being built. again, i don't think democrats understand how badly they got owned on this on the funding side. >> yeah, they don't agree with you, dan. let me put out quotes from many democrats, presidential hopefuls on national emergency, elizabeth warren calling temper tantrum. julian castro, constitutional crisis. >> do i want to know this

when you run into the angel moms like i did and they come up that say hello and have a picture of the loved they lost, you don't know what to say. i know how you feel, thank god i don't know how to feel. acosta, again, put himself in unwinnable situation by trying to show-boat and make himself the story. peter: powerful moment of the confrontation or conversation after the press conference between the angels moms and jim acosta, to be a fly in that wall. another issue we have to get your perspective on, andy mccabe, out with new book, doing interviews, he's revealing, we don't know if he's truthful or not that there were serious discussions of invoking amendment in the constitution to remove the president, listen to
this. >> discussion of the 25th amendment was simply rod raised the issue and discussed it with me in the context of thinking about how many other cabinet officials might support such an effort. the deputy attorney general was definitely very concerned about the president, about his capacity and about his intent at that point in time. >> dan, you have been on it from the beginning, no one ever thought they would get caught, now they are pointing fingers at each other, your latest on the revelation. >> do you understand what you just heard there, the deputy director admitting in national tale -- televised to take part in coup attempt, give me what -- even to the radical far left, please describe to me in any other terms other than a coup reasonably what you just saw?
the number two at the fbi explaining how to remove a president from office using constitutional means not meant at all for what it was meant for. one more thing, mccabe has unique liability, pete, because he's the one guy on the record that is already admitted that the warrant to spy on the team wouldn't have existed without the dossier was never verified. he's admitted this. unique liability here and that's why he's running for the hill. griff: the spokesperson at doj, mccabe walking saying at no time did did cushion happen. should rod rosenstein finally be made to answer the congress? >> griff, number one, i appreciate that, you can't unrob the bank, the bank has been robbed, mccabe said it. [laughter] >> you don't walk back, hey, mad
bad, i screwed up, here is the money back, should rod rosenstein testify in congress, absolutely? number 2, what the heck was in that expanded scope memo to bob mueller? were they investigating people and not collusion with no evidence? peter: the memo that justified the special counsel which has not been made public? >> no, the initial memo has, the expanded scope member that gave additional powers, we don't know what was in there and rosenstein and buddies are hiding it. peter: interesting. should he still have a job, dan. >> no, god no. is that a serious question? [laughter] peter: i don't ask a lot of serious questions. >> i'm messing with you, brother. rod rosenstein should be in a beach getting a tan and nowhere justice department. >> thank you, dan.

contributor, he joins us now, robert. >> thanks for having me on. griff: you had a big conversation with joe biden, what happened? >> i spoke to him wednesday, we have known each other for 10 or 15 years, it's not surprising, i met with most of the candidates but he really told me, you know, he's going to be incredibly excited and enthusiastic to enter the race and i think it's about a 90% chance, it's never certain until he announces. i mean, i met with him a lot in 2015 when he was truly agonizing, i think his mind was telling him to go in and heart was telling him not to go in and he wasn't ready to commit. it feels to me that after a great midterm for him where he was the most populist surrogate in the country that he feels incredible to run. he can get both the coastal, you
know, excitement as well as industrial america. griff: he would he position himself because the democrat party are so far to the left? >> you know, griff, that's a great question and it's a debate that we have internally within our party all of the time. i don't necessarily agree that everyone has made incredible shift to the left, what i do believe everyone has to check a few different boxes, they have to be for immigration, they have to be for health care as a right, they have to be for smart gun reform and they have to be for climate change but i actually will tell you 80% of the country is there as well, so to say that's incredible shift to the left is a bit of bs. griff: it's not bs, hold on, you had this week beto o'rourke who is going run, you have kirsten gillibrand talking about taking down border wall after border patrol official in the country is saying we need more. >> yeah, but you also had president trump asking for
something like 800 miles of wall and will hurdt who is in the district who hayed it's ridiculous and he's the republican congressman in the district. listen, i think there's arguments every which way for a wall, barrier, fence, security, you know, smarter minds working on it than me, the populist rhetoric on the far left and far right is going to extreme because it gets their grassroots going. griff: do you believe that a democrat presidential candidate could get elected if they're not for essentially open borders at this point? >> yes, i think absolutely there's a big difference between being for immigration reform like, you know, dreamers and a pathway to citizenship than there is than saying open borders, i think democrats have been strong on border security in the past. the truth is that the wall, the wall has become a campaign hot
potato. what i would say as democrat, you can have progressive issues but you need to be a progrowth democrat to be president trump, you have to be strong on the economy and if you're not strong on the economy, president trump will win again because what we've learned from our decades of elections people don't end and pull ler -- lever because of economy and my view those progressive issues, those are national issues. griff: robert, we have to leave it there. we will see if joe biden will jump into the race. >> my gut says he's going in. griff: he won't anymore, plus, we looked at pete's dna test results on the show and we found out he's mega norwegian.

involved economic sanctions on people around the world, but the conservative estimate we have at least 10 million foreign nationals living in the country, how can we stop that? how can a country remain a country if we cannot stop that? by the way calling fake emergency and dismissing this, it's going to hurt democrats at the poll. the majority of americans seriously want to reduce not only illegally immigration but even legal immigration at culture that's discouraging assimilation which is a loser issue for the left but they are digging their heels in. >> it seems democrats, michael, what they want open borders, you have beto o'rourke and gillibrand outright saying it, if they make to it democratic primary, they have to run in general election with the very radical ideas, have they not processed that? >> well, they campaigned in 2018 on abolishing immigration
enforcement. that didn't poll too well so they stopped doing it, i say that president trump is the greatest civic's teacher in american history, poem didn't realize that the national emergency's act even existed even though we have 32 current national emergencies, but let's not forget the text of this law permits military construction specifically for the purpose of securing our country, now, if we cannot use that money to protect our country and the commander in chief cannot secure the country, what's the purpose of this law, what's the purpose of extraordinary armed forces if democrats on the left will hamper us from the most basic functions of government? >> the basic things are so much of what the president has reminded people of. if you don't have borders, you don't have a country which we use today take for granted. now we have to explain that to people because they want to get rid of those borders.
you are there. >> looking good. >> hey, guys, all right, austin, turn around and look at the camera. we have a camera inside the chevy silverado right here and you will take us around. >> thisthis is the actual pace k for the daytona 500 silverado 2019. let's go for a ride, what do you you think in. >> you said pace truck. all right, so you won the race last year. >> we did, yeah, this is -- this is any favorite track that we go to all year, a lot of hype goes into the race and nothing like being a daytona for the 500. >> all right, so this is turn 1. >> this is turn 1, try to keep your eyes on the road here. we get 3 wide in here, it doesn't -- you can't tell how
tight the track it actually is, it gets pretty wide, not much room left. not much available space. >> you're doing this for 3 and a half hours or so and you're completely trapped in it. clearly you're not claustrophobic at all. >> no, we can go 100 but we are going 200. >> yeah. >> we are pulling a lot of heat so throughout the race, i mean, you have to stay hydrated and eventually focus, the focus here is bigger than anything, we are constantly 3 wide, 2 wide, right on each other's bumper. >> all right, we went through turn 4, like how much practice, are you completely used to seat -- >> i think so so. the new system has done good job to keep us exactly where we need to be in the car, we don't move
around much and pretty much locked in in the entire race. >> did you ever drive with one hand on the race? >> only when i'm signaling with my hand, pit, most of the time i have two hands, i'm usually looking at mirrors. >> and you don't have rear-view mirrors or anything. >> we run one rear-view mirror. >> communicating with you and telling you what's going on and what you need to do? >> you to trust your spotter because he can see more of the view of the track than you can. you are seeing the guy in front of you and the guy behind you. hopefully you're controlling the race. this is the line that you can see, it's right against the fence, so we will be all over
the track some sunday with 40 cars out here. >> you won last year, your chance this is year? >> i feel great about it. we struggled a little bit in dual because the handling wasn't there, yesterday in practice felt like we got it right, try and cross checker flags like we did last year. >> that's it, checkered flag. >> that's where it all comes down to, dreams are made right here. >> your dreams, i'm one of two at this point. [laughter] >> thanks so much. >> how does that feel, rick, very quickly, going 100 miles an hour? >> yeah, i mean, so this is a really incredibly steep bank that i don't think you can get appreciation for in tv. >> no. >> i don't feel amazing, i feel queasy. there you go. >> pretty cool deal taking a pickup truck around.

hands. jedediah: we almost made it. we almost made it. griff: sometimes you have to clean your hands. with cheetohs that's how you do it. pete: you wouldn't be washing your hands if you were in the migrant caravans because conditions are difficult there, many of them are sick and it's a situation that the president and a lot of others are calling a crisis at the border. that is why we saw this week president trump signing a national emergency declaration. watch. >> we're talking about an invasion of our country with drugs, with human traffickers, with all types of criminals and gangs, and when you listen to politicia politicians, in particular certain democrats, they say it all comes through the port of entries. wrong. they say walls don't work.
walls work 100%. nancy knows it, chuck knows it, they all know it, and the only reason we're up here talking about this is because of the election. and this is one of the ways they think they can possibly win is by obstruction. we will have a national emergency and we will then be sued and then we'll end up in the supreme court and hopefully we'll get a fair shake and we'll win in the supreme court. jedediah: i love that. i love that he laid it all out. like listen, i'm going to do this, here's what's going to happen. that's exactly what you needed. he knows lawsuits are already rolling in, that was no surprise. he realized he was backed into a corner. he didn't know what else to do. it is a national emergency. we already went through the shutdown. democrats aren't budging. one thing people are asking if he brings in the money, where will the money be coming from. $1.375 billion is the dhs appropriation coming from the bill. $2.5 billion d.o.d. counter drug support. $3.5 billion, d.o.d. military
construction budge. $600 million treasury department for forfeiture fund. that will be combined to make up a total that's more palatable to him and border patrol agents he's spoken to this whole time and will be something that might work. pete: he was in an impossible situation. he was given a terrible bill. he didn't want to shut down the government again. he believes it's an emergency. he signs the bad bill which has a lot of bad stuff in it. it was a nancy pelosi special. by announcing national emergency, he shows how committed he is to building a wall. i think that press conference was really effective, especially with the angel moms, who rarely get that kind of publicity, but they are standing there, some of which sons or daughters were killed just last year, holding up their photos and saying the lives of our kids matter. this is an emergency to us and to all americans who believe the bothered -- griff, nyou know ths better than anybody. griff: many people in washington say the democrats clearly won the standoff and the declaration
was a step backwards for the president. but we had dan bongino on. here's what he said about who actually won the fight. >> i don't think the democrats understand how badly they got owned on this thing on the funding side. he did the funding sequentially meaning by the time he gets to the national emergency funding, they have to spend $1.375 billion allocated according to the bill. the $600 million from the treasury fund's perfectly legal. the other two billion from the other funds, by the time he gets to the $3 billion plus there, the wall's already being built. griff: that's the strategy. jedediah mentioned salutes earlier. i will be reporting all week long, i'm sure, about the number of lawsuits coming. look at the headlines already. this from daily caller, trump was sued over his national emergency declaration in less than six hours. jedediah: six hours. griff: the hill, aclu announces lawsuit against trump over
blatantly illegal national emergency and the a.p. picking up on judiciary chair hearing on emergency claim. pete: so predictable, you can almost plan according to it. jedediah: that's why he was laying it out day one. this is what's going to happen because of course, you know all of a sudden they are all fired up and calling him lawless. the same advocates for sanctuary cities, for obama's daca overreach, suddenly now a national emergency. the national emergency act is designated to the president by congress. just so you know. you may disagree with it but it is designated by congress. pete: we will have a big conversation about the constitution, about borders, about immigration and people like this will say crazy things. listen. >> it's time for everybody to stand up, all hands on deck, to refuse this president these fake emergency powers he would like to have. i'm urging everybody, get together, rally in every community across this country all this weekend. send a message to washington,
d.c., no, mr. president, we are not going to allow you to do this. griff: she's urging people to rally. i would suggest to her, not necessarily urge, that she spend 24 hours with border patrol. pete: last hour you said three hours. griff: it doesn't take long to see. i get video of wow, amazing stuff and i tell people it's all day long. there will be, by the time we start this show and finish it tomorrow, there will be hundreds arrested. if you are watching, send me the numbers by tomorrow on just what happens today. pete: great point. hundreds arrested between when this show goes off the air until it goes on tomorrow. that's just those arrested just in the rio grande valley sector. we don't know how many are actually not arrested which is the entire problem. jedediah: democrats have come out, you know, pretty strong on this, at first saying it's a fake emergency, it's a manufactured crisis. when are we really going to hear how they feel?
you are hearing it now. beto o'rourke saying he would tear down the wall. take a listen. >> if you could, would you take the wall down now here? >> yes. absolutely. i would take the wall down. jedediah: follow that up with, i want to hear what you have to say, senator gillibrand saying she would support the tearing down of the border wall. >> we just heard from beto o'rourke to remove some of the existing wall. he was talking about el paso. but the idea of dismantling the wall, good idea, bad idea? >> i can look at it, see what part he means and why and if it makes sense, i could support it. pete: step into the i see the future machine. three, four months from now you will have the first democratic presidential debates, msnbc or elsewhere. that question will be not only do you oppose the president's wall but would you tear it down. if you are a politician on that stage appealing to the far left, which is what the base is in primaries, i dare you to stand up and say no, i'll keep the wall. i'll keep trump's wall. they are all going to say i
would tear it down. i would take it down. that will become the litmus test which exposes them for what trump has accused them of which is being an open borders party. that is where their base is. play the tape. let's play the tape in four months. that's exactly what will happen. the majority will declare i will tear down trump's wall. griff: that will be interesting if they do that because setting the president aside and the politics associated with him, it is the border patrol officials, all of them are saying we need three things. infrastructure, man power and technology. you can't just take one away because it has a political association. correct? pete: correct. jedediah: what happens when that person is out of the primary and has to run in the general election and has made outrageous statements that no one who is a moderate, even independents who maybe they don't like trump, don't know where to turn, they will hear this and go wow, this party has gone really extreme. i'm curious to see how joe biden plays that. joe biden has to know some of this rhetoric coming out of the aocs and elizabeth warren and kamala harris, this is crazy
talk and he knows it. pete: they will go to drones. drones will solve everything. drones everywhere. i want more drones. that's where the conversation will go. we have an actual expert on this program earlier, the acting director of i.c.e. he knows what he's talking about. he commented on the democrats and where they're going. listen to him. >> the best thing ever happened to this administration is these people go so far left, i think most american people understand, beto o'rourke hasn't looked at the data. every single place they built a wall, illegal immigration has decreased. as far as gillibrand, she used to be pro-immigration enforcement. she used law enforcement to enforce immigration law. then she wanted to run for senator and threw it out the window. she will change her mind tomorrow. she's an embarrassment to the state of new york. i'm a native new yorker. i'm embarrassed for her. pete: talk about the results. on the east side of that sector, there's 55 miles of wall existing. on the left side, on the west side, none. guess how much of the apprehensions illegal crossings are having on the west side where there is no wall?
90.66%. griff: in el paso, after they built the wall, apprehensions went way down because people weren't able to cross. jedediah: we asked you guys what you think. we have e-mails to share. don, if democrats want to tear down a wall, start by tearing down the partisan wall they built on day one of the trump presidency. pete: from gene, beto won't send money to build the wall but will spend money to tear it down. e-mail from lorain, some of these democrats need to spend a day with our border patrol to see what actually happens without a barrier. that's true. jedediah: that's the best point made. until you are down there and actually seeing it with your own eyes, that's a whole different experience. then you are live in the flesh. that stuff becomes real real fast. pete: america is reacting to your dna test. marcus says tell griff he's always welcome in our home. remember the alamo. you got a whole new level of street cred this morning. jedediah: we will get to some

we are going to confront the national security crisis on our southern border, not because there was a campaign promise, which it is. it was one of many, by the way. we're rebuilding the military, our economy is thriving like never before. people get what we're doing. they get it. they really get it. and i'm honored by it. pete: president trump touting his accomplishments while declaring a national emergency at our southern border. now new numbers show the president's approval rising to 43.6%. so will he keep that momentum going? jedediah: here to weigh in, former senior adviser to president george w. bush, fox news contributor karl rove. welcome. >> thanks for having me. i'm prepared to talk with -- jedediah: there you go. look at that. >> look, we really, we
norwegians really are sort of a hygienic people. you have to change your practices. jedediah: oh, karl. griff: you're in texas. i've got kin that's part of the alamo. >> you have always been high in my estimation but you are higher today. you are eligible, my friend, as a descendent of a defender of the alamo to join the sons of the republic of texas, one of the most storied organizations in texas. only people who were here at the time of the republic of texas are members and as an alamo descendent, you would be right up in the elite. griff: thank you. i accept. >> congratulations. what a great thing to have in your past, to be a descendent of the defender of the alamo. griff: it was special. thank you. whal what else is special, two and a half point rise in 15 days in this approval rating. what do you attribute that to? >> well, look, first of all, it's a modest increase but remember, that's in the real
clear politics average. you are averaging in a bunch of polls, a number of which happened before the state of the union. i think three things. first of all -- four things, actually. i think the state of the union had the right tone when it came to unity and compromise but i think three things that have happened since then have helped keep the momentum going and could keep it going if he builds on. one is the budget agreement. the shutdowns are not good for anybody, but particularly for the president since he assumed responsibility for it, so by avoiding a shutdown and making a deal, he gets forward progress and that's what his people want. but we had two other things that happened that i thought were good. one is the house judiciary committee hearing with matthew whitaker. i mean, the democrats were dreadful. they have the right of oversight but i thought the tone that they adopted and they would ask questions and cut him off before he could answer, they were badgering him and they made him a sympathetic figure. they keep that up and what's going to happen to them is what happened to the republicans in
the clinton impeachment and that is the american people say you are overreaching. n then the final one was the release of the green new deal by ocasio-cortez and by senator markey of massachusetts. what a dreadful rollout. what an idiotic plan. we are going to get rid of oil and gas in ten years. in ten years we will all be driving electric vehicles, we will retrofit every building in america, we will overhaul agriculture, we will do all of these things and we are going to do it with government massive investment and the government's going to take an equity position in all these new industries. that's called socialism. the american people don't like the price tag or the method. pete: you broke it down well, thank you very much. we will get griff signed up for that organization. jedediah: thanks, karl. lara trump is here and joins us, coming up next. ♪ too much time in the bathroom

former fbi deputy director andy mccabe speaking out and confirming that he ordered an obstruction of justice probe into sitting president trump. listen. >> i was very concerned that i was able to put the russia case on absolutely solid ground in an indelible fashion that were i removed quickly, reassigned or fired, that the case could not be closed. pete: here to react, lara trump. great to have you here this morning. thank you so much. you have seen the coverage of this. react to what was done in may of 2017 as president trump was in the oval office. >> so this is a duly elected president, someone who the entire country said we want to be our president, and here we see that yet again, people cannot accept the results of an election and by the way, the president knew that something was amiss. he had been saying from the very beginning something's going on within the fbi, something's wrong within my justice
department. he knew and everybody said oh, he's crazy. no, he wasn't. this is exactly the thing that he was talking about happening. it's disgraceful and i think he needs to answer a lot of questions. pete: what kind of consequence would you like to see? >> well, listen, if he answers questions and we get more information and we understand that there was essentially a coup that was being considered here against our president, i mean, that's illegal. you can't do that. that's treasonous, it's horrible, it's not, again, what we stand for in the u.s. and i think he should be pun shalled -- punished to the full extent of the law. pete: the president reluctantly signing a bill that doesn't provide much money for the wall, then declaring a national emergency to tap into more. your reaction? >> it was more than a dollar. we know that nancy pelosi only said she was willing to give a dollar. so look, he got $1.4 billion within the bill for funding the wall -- pete: with a lot of caveats, though. >> right. right. but at least congress came together on something.
i always say we need to remind the people in congress they are there to represent us, the american people. lot of times they get to washington, d.c., they play politics, they forget about their constituents around the country who all want a safe country, who all want to know our immigration system works in the proper way. here we finally have a couple of steps in the right direction. pete: joe biden, new indications he may formally enter this race. the reaction? >> that's okay with us. i always say this president is doing all the hard work for us at the campaign right now because he's winning for this country, he's delivering on promises he made in the campaign in 2016 and he's delivering results for the people of this country. so biden can throw his hat in the ring. anybody else can do it. whoever would like to, bring them all on. pete: a new fox news poll talked about, laid out what are the chances of defeating president trump in 2020. over 50% think there's an excellent or good chance. only a few says none. i think americans acknowledge
while he has a lost accomplishments and his approval rating is high considering what an onslaught he's gotten from the media, this still could come down to the wire in 2020. >> you know what, i just think there are so many people that go in a voting booth that will never tell their friends or family or anyone, but they are going to vote for this president, even here in new york. eric and i walk around and people, a guy just down the street earlier was screaming out his window make america great. there are people all across this country that are not voting in those polls, that are never going to talk to a pollster and certainly won't be honest. pete: speaking of the presidency and the white house, some news was made recently that here's the president after -- you have been making the case that maybe he should get a dog. here are his thoughts. >> how would i look walking a dog on the white house lawn? seems a little phony to me. >> i have been pushing a dog for many years. many, many years, to my father-in-law. i would love for him to adopt a dog. i have two.

more time. big interview airing on "60 minutes" tomorrow, the fired deputy fbi director andy mccabe has a book coming out and is talking to scott pelley. a lot of interesting things he's saying, one of which, there was a discussion amongst top officials about invoking the 25th amendment. here is what mccabe had to say. >> the discussion of the 25th amendment was simply rod raised the issue and discussed it with me in the context of thinking about how many other cabinet officials might support such an effort. the deputy attorney general was definitely very concerned about the president, about his capacity and about his intent at that point in time. pete: he mentions rod rosenstein, the deputy attorney general who is still there today. he, by the way, says nope, that didn't happen. mccabe, a known liar and leaker, so we don't actually know whether what he's saying is true or not, he says that rod
rosenstein seriously considered wearing a wire, this is while the president was in office. eight days in may between when jim comey was fired and when rod rosenstein appointed a special counsel. they said the moment was so ominous that they felt like they might have to -- imagine trying to approach the cabinet for the 25th amendment? it's a coup approach. jedediah: it's stunning mccabe says this as if no one watching is saying wait a second, you were trying to oust the president of the united states, invoking the 25th amendment based on what? it doesn't even occur to him people are saying we are talking about the deep state for awhile, this is the deep state in action. we spoke to jason chaffetz, former house oversight committee chairman. he says mccabe should be prosecuted. take a listen. >> these are the precursors of essentially a coup. andrew mccabe did the one thing most people in federal government can't do. that is he got fired for lying. the inspector general cited four times, three times under oath, where he lied. i want to know why is the department of justice
prosecuting manafort and others, papadopolous, for lying. why aren't they prosecuting and putting andrew mccabe in jail? this guy should be prosecuted. i don't know what to believe because he never tells the truth. griff: their only refuge is to say we truly thought trump was a russian agent. but we know by may of 2017, they knew that wasn't the case. they were wiretapping and surveilling him and his campaign for years. jedediah: you can't just launch investigations because you think somebody, oh, i think pete might be x, y and z, i'm going to investigate him at length. that's not how it works. you have to have proof of that. pete: you can't just jump into a race car at daytona like rick did. he's coming back to us one more time live at daytona international speedway. he's got a special guest. nascar star, kyle busch. rick? reporter: we are talking to kyle busch coming up after the break. kyle's younger half, he looks

of go in the right spot at the right time and making sure you are in the right position when it comes down to the end of the race. so people ask well, how much of it is skill, how much of it is luck. i say it's 80% luck and 20% skill, when you come to this race at daytona, where it's probably vice versa everywhere else we go. reporter: you have to have the skills so when luck presents itself you are ready. >> absolutely. reporter: you became famous this week. >> he's becoming spider-man. yeah. reporter: did you hear about that mario cart thing your dad did? >> yeah. reporter: what did you think? >> how was it? >> it was good. >> do you remember what we were doing? weren't we playing mario cart and you asked me if i could be in the game? >> yeah. >> then what happened? what? wasn't i in the game? >> yeah. >> who was i in the game with, do you remember? wasn't it mario? >> yeah. >> and yoshi. >> yeah. >> and donkey cong.
>> yeah. >> and who won? >> you. >> i did. reporter: how long did that take you to put together? >> i crashed. reporter: you crashed on it? no way. >> you crashed. >> why are you giving away all my secrets? the filming of the video probably took about two hours. then the video editing took about a week. so it took a little bit of all of that. reporter: you got a good dad that can make that video of himself. congratulations. thank you. >> i appreciate it. absolutely. thank you guys. it's going to be a fun weekend. reporter: guys, back to you. griff: good luck. good luck to kyle. i played hours and hours. jedediah: me, too. i love it. pete: more "fox & friends" moments away. ♪
