about contact with chairman adam schiff. >> we are talking about a climate the existential threat of global warming. so i will now make it official. meatless mondays will be in effect and we are proud of that. ♪ you are the one thing in my way ugly. steve: remember back in the day back in school mystery meat i don't know what that is. now here in new york city for the 1.1 million school kids, every monday is going to be meatless. so you don't have to worry what that meat is because it's not meat. brian: my big memory of mystery meat is meatballs that movie following i believe caddie shack by bill murray where he plays the compassionate counselor. the announcement today for dinner is some kind of meat. so, and the kids seem to embrace that.
steve: they won't be seeing that on new york city on monday. ainsley: mystery meat is what is in hot dogs. pizza friday was the best on fridays. steve: you were lucky you had a schedule. brian: now to issue at hand in washington, d.c. i am not for impeachment. those are the words of house speaker nancy pelosi. she is now against trying to throw president trump out of office. ainsley: a proclamation that could alienate many radical democrats. steve: griff jenkins joins us from washington with the latest divide in the democratic party. griff, she says simply he is not worth it. >> yeah. good morning, guys. it's one thing the speaker and the president agree upon. pelosi is slamming the brakes on impeachment. sending a clear message to specific members of her own party. telling "the washington post" this, quote: i'm not for impeachment. impeachment is so divisive to the country that unless will is something so compelling and overwhelming
and bipartisan, i don't think we should go down that path because it divides the country. and he's just not worth it pelosi's comments reflect a sent. held among democratic leadership that impeachment could backfire politically. the more outspoken freshman are not having any of it representative alexandria ocasio-cortez disagreeing with pelosi saying, quote: i wouldn't say she is completely concrete. should the mueller report drop, and we see something, i wouldn't count anything out. in the list of democrats supporting impeachment, that is growing. look at them there 14 and counting. so many so that late yesterday house majority leader steny hoyer was out trying to tamp things down telling fox news, look, we have 62 new democrats, not three. the white house, by the way, is not commenting. now, perhaps history is playing into pelosi's thinking. remember by the end of president clinton's impeachment trial his approval ratings had risen 7 points. urge gained five seats in
the midterms. steve: thanks, griff. they are worried if a failed attempt at impeaching will embolden donald trump's supporters and get him reelected ultimately that's what it is about. ainsley: you wonder wife would she say that? what is she up. to say she is laying the groundwork there has to be evidence and it would have to be bipartisan. some say she is laying the ground work to be able to say later on. i don't want it i didn't really have a choice. brian: adam schiff also agrees with the speaker of the house, but you can set your watch to the fact that in a matter of a week or two somebody else in the caucus is going to offer articles of impeachment. you even heard about it last week not only the three big freshman but congress green offered it when he was in the minority. nancy pelosi, sadly, for her sake will show again that she is not in control of her caucus. you mark my words within 10 days they will offer it anyway. there is going to be some type of "the washington post" story or allegation emerging from some closed door meeting where no leaks should emerge but they do.
and somebody in the caucus is going to trample over her proclamation. urk. ainsley: steny hoyer thinks nobody thinks there is going to be a conviction. we have 62 democratic new members into the just three. steve: jerry nadler who runs the house judiciary committee makes it clear they will not proceed with house impeachment unless they can get republican support. ainsley: bipartisan. steve: unless there is some smoking gun that's not going to happen. meanwhile, after this big win in the elections of 2018, you would think that the party would be -- the democratic party would be united on different things. dan crenshaw, the republican from texas, says that is really far from the truth. watch. this here he is last night with sean. >> it's extremely divisive. the country does not like that. what are they doing? they are bringing dysfunction to washington. the reality is right now that representatives like alexandria ocasio-cortez are driving the narrative of their party. and that's really problematic and i actually feel bad for a lot of my democratic colleagues who really don't agree with her.
the reality is she is driving the narrative. that's problematic for the democrats. the american people don't want to see it. brian: steve cohen a democratic congressman it's a shame new congressman don't know what it's like to be in the wilderness and minority. that's where they will end up. if you read rahm emanuel today first story on foxnews.com he is a failed mayor but a good politician. he says what people don't understand they are blowing an opportunity to win back the white house and keep the house by going way out to the left with their beliefs and by going off the charts with their socialist philosophy. these are democrats trying to warn other democrats. steve: right. meanwhile the president of the united states has taken to twitter. what is he trying to do is win over some republicans from voting against him. right now it looks like 15 republican senators have misgivings about the emergency declaration where the president, as you know, has declared an emergency on the southern border. so that he can take some money to build some wall. he was busy on twitter trying to make his case.
ainsley: he says they are -- they say he is stepping on the power of the purse. this is what he tweeted he said republican senators have a very easy vote this week it is about border security and the wall, stopping crime, drugs, et cetera. not constitutionality and precedent. it is an 80% positive issue, the dems are 100 percent united, as usual, on a 20% issue. open borders and crime. get tough r's. meaning republicans. brian: the think is republicans have cover because the reality at the border if you see what's going on for the humanitarian perspective. if you see the numbers that are coming through in terms of families, let alone the odds are the percentage of criminals that are coming through and drugs that are raging. you would think they would stand behind the president in this case. a strong constitutional argument by none other than sometimes critic of the president john hugh, former deputy assistant attorney general. he says it is constitutional what the president is doing. >> what they want is a different kind of through apply president trump than been applied to all previous
presidents. because what they are doing is trying to claim that a statute, not a constitutional power president trump is exercising a power under a statute to declare an emergency and then to transfer money from military construction projects. congress gave that power to the president and congress can always take it back. but what congress really shouldn't be doing is second guessing a president's decision that the national emergency is thered in the first place. steve: ron john of minnesota and pat tomb of pennsylvania are trying to come up with an alternate resolution to support the barrier but at the same time discouraging him and future presidents from declaring an emergency declaration. brian: if they get to 20 they will override his veto. it will get to the president's desk, they have to override his veto with 20 republican defections and do the same thing in the house. it will be really politically problematic for
the president to get that kind of rebuke from his own party. steve: republican senators are telling the administration that there is enough money in this year's budget to cover almost $6 billion he wants for the wall so he doesn't need to resort to the emergency declaration. ainsley: they want to support their conscious and president and the wall but at the same time they don't want him to step on the power of the purse. we have senator josh hawley who supports the president. is he from missouri. he will be live with us at 7:15. brian: he knows the law and attorney general in his own right. quick thing on this in particular is that if the president -- this is going to work its way through the course anyway. even if they voted for it and the president didn't have to use his veto, it was going to actually go through the court system it will eventually end up in the supreme court. the president wants to be able to keep building the wall along the way. steve: so for him to be out there on twitter today trying to limit the damage because at this point he
does not have the votes. jillian: hand it over to jillian who has the headlines: jillian: good morning. a fox news alert. the u.s. withdrawing all-american diplomatic staff from venezuela as the country spirals into chaos. secretary of state mike pompeo says embassy personnel will leave by the end of the week following a nearly week long blackout. meantime disputed president nicolas maduro once again blaming the u.s. for the power outage calling it a quote demonic plot by president trump. also breaking the faa refuses to suspend boeing 737 max 8 planes in the u.s. after that model crashed in ethiopia over the weekend killing all 157 people, including 8 americans. it walls the second time this time of plane has been involved in a deadly crash in months. several countries are grounding the 737 max 8s. an american crew is in ethiopia to investigate. anmma fighter in jail after he

♪ ♪ >> congressman ilhan omar under attack and you know, being able to mobilize progressive leaders across the country to sign on to a letter to organize a preference in support of ilhan omar to call on the democratic leadership to actually expand the language of the resolution to include condemning all forms of bigotry. steve: that is the co-founder of the women's march linda sarsour claiming she and others convinced democratic house throim expand the language on anti-hate legislation after pending a letter to nancy pelosi that garnered more than 600 signatures from progressive leaders all across america. here to weigh in is senior contributor at the
federalist aerial davidson. good morning to you. >> thank you for having me, steveing you. steve: sounds like she is taking credit rather than having nancy pelosi to do anti-semitic resolution do anti-hate thing and keep omar's name out of it? >> absolutely. i think it's not something she should be boasting about. congresswoman liz cheney was one of the republicans who voted against this resolution. and i think she said it perfectly. she said this resolution by expanding the language from not just anti-semitism but all forms of bigotry prevents the democrats from really having to condemn ilhan omar's comments. you know, it prevents them from something to engage in the criticism of the progressive wing of the party that they really should be engaging in. steve: right. but now earl the earl. >> jews are subjected to the vast majority of hate crimes in this country. i think it's deeply deeply problematic that the democratic party is not able
to singularly and explicitly condemn anti-semitism. >> linda sarsour of course the women's marco founder but during the break you were telling us she still has a problem with louis farrakhan, right? >> yeah. i think the entire women's march has had issues with louis farrakhan and they aren't able to outright condemn him. that's hugely problematic. i think if democrats were smart, they would do everything they could to distance themselves from the women's march because this is really bad imaging. this is horrible imaging. steve: what do you make of the power of these freshman congress men -- congresswomen on the democratic side who have been so powerful over the last two months they have been able to convince nancy pelosi to do some things she just really didn't want to do? >> absolutely. and i think, again, this goes back to what we were talking about over the break that i think pelosi is really afraid to condemn the progressive portion of her party. i think if she were smart
she would remove omar in the house foreign relations committee and not legitimize her as a voice went party. the democrats are sort of sitting on their hands. i think it's abysmal. steve: erielle when you look at what the republicans did when steve king said those things about white supremacy not only was he ostracized by his own party but he was taken off the committees as well. that's what they said that ilhan omar, that's the fate she should suffer but she has suffered no consequence of her comments. she has apologize, however. >> i think the issue, you know lee zeldin was another republican in the house who has been a critic of anti-semitism. is he a jewish republican in the house of representatives. he made an excellent point. he said if this had been a republican who had made these comments, it would be absolutely critical that this would condemn explicitly anti-semitism and condemn that congressman by name. instead we are left with this watered down resolution and you sort of see house democratic leadership backing away from really
tackling anti-semitism. steve: all right, erielle thank you for joining us from our nation's capital. >> thank you for having me. steve: 6:20 in new york city. you want food stamps? one state wants you to pass a drug test before you get them is that fair? a debate is coming up next. dolly parton doesn't play politics now she is telling one 2020 democrat to stop playing the dolly music ♪ barely getting by ♪ it's all taking and no giving ♪ you just use your mind ♪ and they never give you credit ♪ it's enough to drive you ♪ crazy if you let it ♪ 9 to 5 ♪ for service and devotion if you have a garden you know, weeds are lowdown little scoundrels. draw the line with roundup. the sure shot wand extends with a protective shield to target weeds precisely and kill them right down to the root. roundup brand. trusted for over 40 years.

benefits be tested if there is reasonable suspicion that the person uses or is under the influence of a drug. as of november 2018, 19.3 million households in america participate in the snap program. so does drug testing for food stamps go too far or is it necessary? here to debate it is registered independent and democratic strategist rochelle richie and mark little a lawyer and vice chair for urban renewal and education. rochelle, start with you, is that too much to ask that you are not on drugs to get free food. >> what the state senator has literally done is criminalized being poor in the united states. we have to think about in this. he has also characterized poor people as being drug addicts and manipulating the system. more than 75% of the recipients of snap benefits are families with children. furthermore, i don't think he really understands the requirements in his own state to receive such benefits. you can actually go to rehab for drug and alcohol addiction and still receive
snap benefits. is he going to test these people, if they test positive, guess what? they go to rehab and they get the benefits anyway. brian: mark, what's your sense? do you think it's too much to ask to make sure people aren't on drugs to get free stuff? >> well, i will tell you she really hit on something that i think is key. first of all, it's important to understand that the states have to work to get people to work and off of dependency on entitlement programs number one. number two, the drug testing requirement in this case is fair. it's fair for two reasons. it brings accountability for behavior, number one. and number two, it brings the opportunity to identify people who have a need, a need for treatment. we have an opioid crisis in this country. and when you have an opportunity for the state to partner with cbos and faith based organizations we have an opportunity to bring treatment instead of terminating benefits. brian: rochelle could you see it be a positive they are doing it in 13 other states.
>> i think it's positive if you are providing people with treatment. i don't think it's positive if you are going to tell people that because you smoked marijuana or because you maybe took too much ibuprofen without a prescription that you cannot buy groceries for your family. that's the problem i have. this senator should obviously be addressing the drug, you know, epidemic that we are seeing across the country but i don't think continuously to monitor people who have overcome addiction or who have paid their debt to society for, you know, their drug convictions should continue to be monitored in this way. at some point it turns into harassment. brian: mark, in particular, do you believe that most people on the program want off? >> well, i don't know if they want off. but i can tell you something about this bill. the reasonable suspicion language. one, is subjective. and it's really too broad. you shouldn't have to look back five years on
somebody's criminal history when, in fact, their probation for their prior offense is terminated. there shouldn't be a look back at all there are some problems with the bill. i know that people find that there is a stigma in testing. but the state has an obligation and a right to manage a program an entitlement program in its state. >> you know, brian, i want to mention one thing, i know one thing that people say about drug testing people as well. if you go to work you get drug tested if you have a job you are drug tested. i worked on the hill for congress, guess what as a press secretary for the house, we were not drug tested. so, not every single job is drug testing people. brian: right. >> certainly it is a standard in the country. we shouldn't hold them to any lesser standard. brian: mark little, rochelle rich i couldn't both made good points. we will see what alabama does. >> thanks, brian. brian: new york's mayor telling a million kids in new york what to eat to stop climate change. >> thinking about our kids, meatless mondays will help and create more balance in

touch. this they view this as political. the american public will decide whether or not they believe michael cohen. steve: judge, you simply cannot lie to congress. >> absolutely. steve: if you do it once, they should go after everybody who lies before congress. >> remember when they went after roger clemens for lying about the contents of his urine. they forgot to administer the oath to him so they couldn't charge him with perjury. they charged him with misleading congress. brian: congress has come out and said i'm not going to pursue this. if you lie i will nail you to the cross. >> the doj will take very serious lay referral from a committee. 42 members on this committee. we think he lied. we want you to investigate it two people, two republicans who are adverse to him, i don't think they are going to take that seriously. steve: sounds like the difference the first sound bite we played michael cohen said i talked about topics and mr. schiff said i talked about security the threats. they could both be right. >> correct. ainsley: is that the topic? >> the other issue is the government doesn't like to prosecute for lying unless
it's material. so, this isn't the substance of what he said about donald trump. this is the preparation for revealing the substance they don't like to go there my prediction? nothing will happen. the american public will decide. most people have already. whether or not michael cohen is worthy or unworthy of belief. steve: when schiff's staff went and talked to mr. cohen, wouldn't it be appropriate to invite the republicans to come on board as well? >> in my opinion, yes, they don't do that republicans have their own staff as you know. and that staff talks to the witness alone and the democratic witness talks to them alone. brian: i got news to you, judge, according to the last chairman in oversight the only time in the bengals hearings they did not have a democrat with them was one time when a whistle blower did not trust democrats to blot whistle with them there besides the invitation went out and elijah cummings went crazy when he was barred one time. >> right. i have great respect for that former chair of that committee and is that true proper way to do it. a lot of this is a political
game. republicans trying to get what they can ahead of the democrats and the democrats doing the same thing. our tax dollars at work. these are the people that we hire to run the government and they are playing political games with each other. where does this end? ainsley: what were some of the lies? he said he didn't want to work at the white house. >> right. ainsley: people at the white house say that's not true. >> did lanny davis ask for a pardon rather than him asking for a pardon? brian: lanny davis said he came out and asked for a pardon. michael cohen was wrong about that. >> if you correct yourself very soon after you make the statement, is that still a lie? is the government going to get anywhere prosecuting that? steve: judge, this is the problem with inviting somebody who has been convicted of lying to congress to testify in front of congress. >> i have seen this in my courtroom. sometimes perjurers tell the truth because they don't want to go through the perjury prosecution. brian: they liberal their goal. now they are looking into insurance claims at mar-a-lago after a hurricane. now they are looking into
his trump foundation. now they are looking into his bid to buy the buffalo bills. >> judge: can i modify the word they? it's not the federal government it's the state government. brian: shed a light. >> can he not interfere with right here in the state of new york where we have a governor who hates the president though he wants money from him, his attorney general is subpoenaing all the deutsche bank records. brian: how does that help the country? how does that help him president of the united states? >> doesn't help him president of the united states. they think they're doing goodbye determining or ascertaining whether or not he committed crimes before he was president. do we really want that? do we really want to go there? steve: that's a popular topic in new york. >> yes, it is. ainsley: why what if they did find he had a crime before. >> the statute of limitations hasn't inspired. >> if it has expired. they can go back five or seven years depending on the crime. they can go back 10 years. ainsley: who would ever want to run for president now.
they would open up everything. brian: if you have a business career especially. steve: they could indict him. wouldn't that happen at the conclusion of the presidency? >> there is no case in the history of the country about a state government indicting a sitting president. brian: it's bawl politics. steve: we have covered a lot of ground. >> yes, we have. started this 20 minutes ago. brian: watch you on the act. ainsley: fox nation app. >> the lawyer representing the isis bride who is also the lawyer who hamden, the famous case at gitmo. brian: went frowent from promo o bragging. >> you taught me well. brian: the green peace calls her a pompous little twit.

the point of the slogan is that the world needs more people with the cowboy spirit. that's the spirit of hard work, determination, self-reliance and integrity. ainsley: it seems the students love it though when the t-shirts with that slogan were on the shelves in your bookstore they sold out within a week. >> yeah. you are exactly right. my roommate actually works at the school bookstore and she was telling me just yesterday they cannot keep the slogan merchandise on the shelves. ainsley: wow. so tell me about these faculty members. there are about two dozen faculty members that complained saying that the term cowboy is racist, sexist. hetero sexist it stands for genocide or represents genocide. what else your reaction to that? >> i just think it's silly. i know that, you know, i was born and raised in wyoming. i was born and raised wyoming's largest city. and aye never once related the words cowboy with genocide, screen phobia, anything like that. and, again, guy back to what the slogan is meant to be.

democrats have had a number of opportunities to condemn comments. that's a question you should ask democrats what their position is since they are unwill to call this what it is and call it out by name and take actual action? steve: what the president told reporters last friday is that the democrats have become anti-israel party. he said they have become anti-jewish party and that's too bad the president said. ainsley: some of those reporters saying to the president really believe that only democrats hate jews. brian: meanwhile late on friday politico has a magazine and they interviewed congresswoman omar where she was talking sweepingly about the state of politics today. and she had something really disparaging, i thought, to say about president obama if you use the quote and if i read it out loud you will agree quote hope and change offered by barack obama was a mirage and omar says, quote: we don't want anybody to get away with murder because they are polished. we want to recognize the
actual policies that are behind the pretty face and the smile. i don't know if you could take that two ways. that, to me, is a disparaging comment on president obama saying really there is no difference between president obama and president trump in her mind. steve: her well, here is the thing. she said that politico reporter misquoted her and then the tape was out there and it completely supported the politico reporter's particular report. she deleted the tweet. buff then yesterday a fox news producer had all sorts of questions for her and listen to what she says about president obama and president trump. >> do you think that president obama is the same as president trump. >> absolutely not. that is silly to even think and equate the two. one is human and the other is really not. ainsley: she said the obama administration was

obama invoked the same statute. i didn't hear him objecting when president clinton invoked this same statute numerous times by the way. and senator paul is right that there is a dispute over funding here. that's congress' fault. congress did not give the president the money that is needed to secure the border but, look, other presidents have invoked this same statute in funding disputes. president reagan invoked the same statute in a funding dispute with congress. so, if you don't like the statute, repeal the statute. but that's not the question in front of us. brian: looks like senator, the president is going to have to use his veto because not enough people agree with you on the right. senator josh hawley, thanks so much. >> thanks for having me. brian: straight ahead senator elizabeth warren fighting with facebook why the social media giant is backtracking after deleting her campaign ads. plus, democrats slammed for not doing enough to cob item ilhacondemnilhan omar's anti-sec comments. jewish millennials are fed up and leaves the party. that leader of that movement is here live next. ♪ any way you want it

hate, across the board. >> i mean, the scariest part, obviously was not the original anti-semitism. it was the lack of leadership coming into play when they were supposed to come into play and condemn what happened and they failed. not only did the anti-semitism that started with ilhan omar get worse and worse by proving that she had supporters in her own party. but when the leadership fails to condemn that it shows they are a party of anti-semitism. the president said it the other day. that's what's happening and they didn't deny it anymore. ainsley: elizabeth, we are talking about this attracting millennials. do you encourage anyone who is jewish and voted democratic their entire lives and now you are asking them to join your movement and do what vote republican now. >> anyone that's jewish or anyone at all that feels they have been told not to vote according to conscious and beliefs. some people told me they were pressured into voting a certain way or not voting at all or made fun of for what they value. anyone who hasn't gone to vote according to what they believe in it's time for that person to stand up and do what's needs to be done in 2020. steve: in 2016, let's take a
look at the results. hillary clinton wound up with 71% of the jewish vote and donald trump got about a quarter. do you see that changing in the next election, the ratio between the republicans and the democrats? >> we're obviously very realistic and also optimistic under president trump, literally anything can happen. but, also we know that the democrats are currently helping us out. i mean, they are moving our point. you know, they don't care about israel. they don't care about the jewish people. and the jewish people need to show them if they don't support us we are not going to support them. we know obviously that the jews have overwhelmingly supported democrats. it doesn't mean that the jewish vote should be discounted. ainsley: why is that when you hear the president talk about his pro-israel stance and meeting with benjamin netanyahu. >> i have no idea. honestly i never understood it after the president moved the embassy. some presidents including president obama and bush promised to do that i thought there would be a shift. i thought people would understand, jewish friends would understand why i supported him didn't at first. they didn't. they never changed their mind. they stuck to the narrative president trump is bad and they refuse --
ainsley: what are they saying now? >> same thing. i don't think they are going to change. steve: your group jexodus. you have events in new york and florida. >> our official launch will be in new york april and florida. are hoping to go across the country 2020. big jewish population in 20 it states. big swing states. come down to a few thousand or hundreds votes. we will get people excited and galvan mys jews across the country to do what matters for them. ainsley: jexodus.org. >> thank you. ainsley: crackdown on disability scammers. why you should think twice about posting about it on social media. steve: good idea. aoc is pushing her gnd green new deal to stop climate change. the co-founder of green peace just had some comments that she probably doesn't like. he is going to join us to explain them coming up next.
and deny access to individualized therapies millions depend on. call the white house today. help stop cuts to part d drug coverage that put medicare patients at risk. >> oh, it's unrealistic. oh, it's vague. oh it doesn't address this little minute thing. i'm like you try. [laughter] you do it. 'cause you're not. cause you're not. until do you it, i'm the boss. how about that? ainsley: alexandria ocasio-cortez sending a message to critics of the green new deal. but that didn't sit well with some, including the co-founder of the environmentalist group green peace. brian: patrick morris tweeting this pompous little twit you don't grow food for
8 billion people without fossil fuels or get food into cities, horses? if fossil fuels were banned every tree in the world would be cut down for fuel for cooking or heating. you would bring about mass death. steve: he joins us now live from our nation's capital. patrick, good morning to you. >> good morning. nice to be here. steve: sounds like you don't think her plan is the good one. brian: you're the one. >> it's a silly plan. that's why i suggested she was a pompous little twit. twit meaning silly in the british lexicon and pompous meaning arrogant. she really rubbed me the wrong way when she said she is the boss. she can make up a proposal that's completely ridiculous and no one else did. and that is what's wrong about this. in fact, the whole climate crisis as they call it is not only fake news, it's fake science. there is no climate crisis. there is weather and climate all around the world.
and, in fact, carbon dioxide is the main building block of all life. that's where the carbon comes from in carbon-based life which is all life on land and in the sea. and not only that a little bit of warming would not be a bad thing for myself being a canadian and the people in russia wouldn't mind a little couple of degrees warmer either. steve: patrick, there are so many scientists who come out and say and have said that climate change is real. >> yes, of course climate change is real. it's been happening since the beginning of time. but it's not dangerous and it's not made by people. climate change is a perfectly natural phenomenon and this modern warm period actually began about 300 years ago when little ice age began to come to an end. there is nothing to be afraid of. and that's all they are doing is instilling fear. most of the scientists who are saying it's a crisis are on perpetual government grants. on one hand they say the science is settled and
people like myself should just shut up because they know what's right. on the other hand, they seem to keep stud ytion it forever and if there is something new to find out. and those two things are completely contradictory. carbon dioxide is actually a benefit to the world. i'm in washington this week for a director's meeting of the co 2 coalition whose purpose and you should take a look at the co 2 coalition online because we have some of the top scientists in the united states and canada on board and we believe that carbon dioxide is entirely beneficial to both the environment, to agriculture and forrest industry and to the climate of the earth. ainsley: patrick, i know you are president of green peace in canada. seven years as a director of green peace international. you founded this organization and then you left. why did you -- why were you one of the founders and why did you decide to leave? >> i was one of the founders doing a ph.d. in late 1960's, early 1970s in
ecology. i was radicalized by the cold war and the threat of all out nuclear war and the emerging consciousness of the environment and we did a lot of good things. we stopped nuclear testing in alaska. we have stopped it in the south pacific. we saved the whales. and we stopped a lot of toxic waste being put into the ocean. and the air. but, by the mid 1980s we had gained a lot of notoriety and we were bringing in a lot of money and we were hijacked by the extreme left who basically took green peace from a science-based organization to an organization based on sensationalism, misinformation and fear. brian: they are militant and this next generation is militant about the environment. it's their number one issue. here is what green peace said about you moore does not represent green peace. his statements have nothing to do with green peace's positions. the new green new deal resolution has the potential of create family sustaining union jobs to protect our nation's clean air, water and communities. your reaction?
>> the fact is you cannot do agriculture for 8 billion people. produce the food for 8 billion people without fossil fuels as far as we know it we don't have an alternative, especially for transportation. which is over 90% dependent on fossil fuels. it's one thing to have a battery-powered vehicle for your family. it's another thing to try to get 40 tons of food at a time into the cities. it's just not going to happen. steve: patrick, you also said if fossil fuels were banned every tree in the world would be cut down for fuel for cooking and heating. >> absolutely. the fact is 85% of the world's energy is fossil fuels. and the carbon dioxide being emitted from burning it was actually taken out of the atmosphere and the oceans, millions of years ago and stored in sediments. we are now releasing it back into the atmosphere where it can fertilize the life on earth. carbon dioxide and water are
the two main constituents of all life. carbohydrates and, of course, fossil fuels are hydro cahydrocarbons just missig the water. when you burn them the oxygen is recombine dollars with the ca carbon to form the carbon dioxide. people need to learn about the chemistry. this is fake science and driving a dangerous movement on the energy front. brian: driving a whole political party. patrick moore this is called climate change push back that's the other definition of it thank you so much. appreciate you joining us. >> thanks for being here. ainsley: hand it over to jillian who has headlines for us. >> a colonel is growing among democrats that a hard left turn will result in the re-election of president trump. in an op-ed, chicago mayor rahm emanuel writes, quote: if trump's only hope for winning a second term turns on his ability to paint us as socialist, we should have played it type.

steve: investigators are working to try to figure out what caused ethiopian airlines flight 302 to crash just six minutes after takeoff killing all 157 people on board including 8 americans. many not involved with the investigation are pointing to the plane's model. it's the boeing 737 max 8. because that is the same model plane that crashed in indonesia just five months ago. now, more than a dozen airlines around the world are grounding their max 8s but the faa here in the united states says the planes are still air-worthy. what do you need to know? here with his take is former faa chief spokesperson scott -- good morning to you. >> good morning, steve. steve: when you hear the two stories about the two planes that crashed. you hear the first one went up and then it went down. went up, it went down.
>> same thing happened to this. but the first plane had some equipment that wasn't working right, right? >> that's correct. they had reports that one of the sensors that actually control the up and down pitch of the plane was not operating properly and they allegedly had replaced it. so they had some data and with that data they were able to recreate the scenario, boeing did, and so the faa went out and said all right, folks, if this happens, this other thing could happen to the plane, which would make the plane point the nose down on takeoff. steve: right. >> with the second crash we just don't have any data. and the faa is really a data-driven agency. and so until we really know what happens and what caused this, i think the faa is going to continue to see and try and collect as much data as they can. steve: scott, because this crash occurred in another country is, that going to mean that data collection is going to be more challenging? >> that's a great point. we do have faa investigators over there.
we do have ntsb investigators over there. they are just guests of the country. the countries themselves will run the investigation. so, while we may want to get in to it a little more deeper, we are still just guests. and so we may not have access to all the information. you know, i think both these countries have excellent relationships with the u.s. so i think everybody is trying to figure out exactly what happened. but, it's not as if the crash happened in the u.s. where ntsb would have primary jurisdiction and get into every level of detail to figure out what happened. steve: the faa right now is saying that there is not a problem. you look here in the united states, southwest airlines has 34 of the max 8s and american airlines flies 24 of them. relatively new model. scott, if you are booked on a max 8 today, would you feel absolutely safe about buckling up? >> yeah. i would, actually. i mean, i still think
aviation is by far the safest mode of travel that you can take. our u.s. pilots are incredibly well-trained. especially now i think everybody is acutely aware of what can happen on takeoff and i think they are prepared to take the counter actions necessary to keep that aircraft in the sky. steve: all right. well it will be good to figure out what happened. scott brenner former faa chief spokesperson. thank you very much. >> thanks, steve. steve: this woman risked her life to get her picture with a big cat is social media pushing people too far? that's the question and that's coming up next. new york city mayor bill de blasio plans to combat climate change by instituting meatless mondays in schools. no cheeseburgers in this paradise. your comments on that want to hour. you are watching "fox & friends" live from new york city. ♪ cheeseburger in paradise ♪ ♪ as you get older.

gardare. thank you for being here always good to have you on. are we going to extreme measures? obviously it's dangerous. physically dangerous for her to lean over the fence, the jaguar sliced her arm. she regrets it what is the danger in going to these extremes to post these pictures on facebook. >> just the statistics you gave that they put themselves in danger that people actually die. and we're not learning the lessons from some of these folks. and i really do think a lot of this is about social media, getting more likes, getting more eyes on to whatever it is that you are posting. therefore, taking more and more unnecessary chances and challenges. ainsley: what did you think about her interview? >> i thought it was a great interview because i think she has learned a lesson. she answered your question was it worth it? absolutely not. i just hope a lot of people pay attention to that. and thankfully, she has actually apologized to the zoo and feels very, in many
ways, very badly about the negative publicity that it's brought to that zoo and thank goodness they are not going to euthanize the jaguar. ainsley: raising kids nowadays. we didn't have those issues. you always raise your kids the way your parents raised you. now with social media i can't go to my mom and dad and say how do i treat this or do i let my daughter do this or that because they don't have that experience and we are learning as we go. >> yes. ainsley: people are posting pictures they want all these likes. you look at some people's lice and you think they have this wonderful life and then you talk to them and they are suffering with the same issues that we all are. >> i think in many ways and i spoke with brian offline about this, people are so caught up in just communicating only through social media and not talking to one another. instead of living their best lives, it's about sharing it on social media and trying to get the reinforcement of others and that's why they sometimes act out and do the crazy things that they do.
i think we need to recenter ourselves and understand that we need to live for the moment in a very safe way certainly look at the things that are important to us and not just about getting that adrenaline rush of doing something different and exciting and letting other people see this life that we're living. it really is about taking care of ourselves. ainsley: thank you for being with us. >> it's a pleasure being with you. ainsley: democrats divided. nancy pelosi says impeaching president trump is not worth it other radical democrats aren't happy about that. we are live in washington with that story. plus, mike huckabee is here live in the next hour ♪ we're going to rock ♪ this town ♪ we gonna rock ♪ this town ♪

i wonder how he will handle it. reporter: good morning, guys. impeach or not to impeach. telling "the washington post" this, i'm not for impeachment, impeachment is so divisive to the country, unless so compelling and overwhelming, bipartisan i don't think it will go down that path an divide the country and he is not worth it, he, being president trump. has not commented. pelosi commented among a sentiment by all democrat leadership who worry leadership could backfire. the list of democrats supporting impeachment is growing. 14 and counting. seasoned hands like maxine waters, and al green and alexandria ocasio-cortez and rashida tlaib. aoc disagreeing with pelosi's comments. i wouldn't say she is completely concrete should the mueller report drop and we see something, i wouldn't count anything out. not clear at this point when pelosi patch the crack in the
caucus to get impeachment off the table. democrats ought to cult president clinton. by end of his impeachment trial, he addedpoints to popularity and five seats to the congress. ainsley: unless it is something so compelling, overwhelming and bipartisan. some people are laying groundwork later today i didn't want to but we had no choice. connell: tom steyer, among people not tolerating that. adam schiff is buying into it for now. steny hoyer said the speaker was very firm in her statements but i coy alexandria ocasio-cortez if i happen to disagree with that take is indicative of where this thing could be going. steve: nancy pelosi is playing down impeachment talk for months. jerry nadler, he runs the judiciary committee in the house, he has said that the democrats would not proceed with it if there were no republican
support. nancy pelosi ultimately figures the best way to beat donald trump is at the polls in 2020, rather than try to impeach him if there is no support in the senate. ainsley: we keep hearing from the three freshmen congresswoman. steny hoyer said we have 62 new democratic members, not three. aoc, alexandria ocasio-cortez, she kind of walked back her comments. she was saying we have to see what happened in the mueller investigation. she said i would defer to the wishes of the party leadership. connell: she should tell the congresswoman from michigan. looks like she was starting with impeachment last week. thursday there will be a vote at which time republican cost lose, this vote to disapprove to president's emergency action would give $8.6 billions for the border wall, repurpose funds. most controversial of defense funds of $3.6 billion.
there is some people who recognize the emergency and crisis at the border like rand paul but said constitutionally i can't vote for this measure i want the power of the purse to remain with congress. steve: according to "the hill" there are 15 republican senators who have miss giving about it. so the president is going to lose in the senate because of the republican support. what they're trying to do, they're trying to control the damage. ainsley: keep the tally low. steve: exactly right. meanwhile a number of republican senators are telling the administration there is enough money left over in the current budget that he could get close to that $6 billion without having to declare the emergency declaration. that should only be used as a last resort the administration says. of course as we've been telling you the republican have been trying to talk him out of it. this is why the president is tweeting. >> republican senators have very easy vote this week. it is not border security and
the wall, stopping crime, drugs, et cetera, constitution in the and precedent. it is 80% positive issue. the dems are 100% united as usual on 20% issue, open borders and crime. get tough republicans. connell: right, josh hawley former attorney general from missouri, said constitutional this is fine. listen. >> i didn't hear chuck schumer objecting when president obama invoked the same statute. i didn't hear him objecting when president clinton invoked the same statute numerous times. president reagan invoked the same statute in a funding dispute with congress. if you don't like the statute, repeal the statute. congress has heard testimony on this over and over. we have a smuggling crisis. we have a humanitarian crisis. we have a drug crisis is. we have a law enforcement crisis. our own national security on our own border is definitely a national emergency. if that isn't, i don't know what
is. steve: there are a couple republican senators including pat toomey of pennsylvania and ron johnson of minnesota. they're coming up with a resolution for when the first resolution fails with the white house. essentially what it would do, it would affirm support for a barrier but at the same time discourage presidents from using emergency declarations to get around funding through congress. connell: what the president has facts on his side. the caravans were real. crisis at border is real and getting worse since even went had the emergency action. we're watching more and more families flood through the border in a way exceed all of last year in may. the numbers are there. just a shame behind the scenes there are not republicans and democrats saying i hear you. i do think there is a crisis. here we go with an alternate plan. with the election two years ago can someone govern and stop playing politics. steve: the election is two years away, brian. they don't want to give the
president a win. he will start the rallies shortly. they don't want him traveling around the country, i promise you i will build the wall and we're building the wall. number of people coming into the country illegally is diminish and they don't want to him to do that. connell: you know what is matter with him, i.c.e., i.c.e. is losing patience with the president of the united states. catch-and-release is still in play. they have to open up vans and let all these people out into the interior of the country. steve: catch-and-release is congress. to get rid of that you want to change the law. ainsley: did you hear about this? bill de blasio, mayor in new york city -- he announced -- >> your mayor. connell: he a probably not up to whisper. ainsley: he announced meatless monday. >> this is important on so many levels but it is, i got to say the thinking about our kids individually, we want them to be as healthy as they can be and we want them to learn as well as they can learn.
meatless mondays will help. it will create more balance in their lives. we're talking about our climate, the existential threat of global warming this is something we do that is another contribution to addressing global warming. striking a balance in our whole society. ainsley: great. steve: one thing to talk about the health of the students. it is another thing to talk about reducing green house gas emissions. veganism, by the way of the part of the green new deal. that is part of thing. it looks like mondays will be vegetarian for breakfast, lunch. connell: riding horses. eating broccoli within 10 years or the world will end. that is the only way to survive. i don't see an alternative. ainsley: this is big government telling you what you have to do. kids cannot eat meat on monday in schools unless they bring it themselves. we asked you what you thought. this is tweet from hap. meatless monday is simply more
government overreach. the left want to dictatering, even our food. for some children the school meals are all they get all day. steve: exactly. ainsley: meatless monday is wrong. meat fills up. steve: with protein. paul tweets this out, if they have no meat monday, the students should counter two meats on tuesday. two meat tuesday. connell: absolutely. michael tweeted this out, what is next, limited size of soda purchases, no salt? oh wait. that is what mike bloomberg did. ainsley: the guy that tweeted that was named michael. connell: connell: maybe that was mike bloomberg. thanks for tweeting us. what part of the cow is roast beef from? steve: the beef? connell: is that the rib. steve: back there. connell: i thought that was rump roast. steve: not that far. ainsley: the boston butt. connell: cows get an extra day. ainsley: jillian, good morning

would you support this resolution condemning anti-semitism? would you support the resolution condemning all forms of bigotry? connell: freshman congresswoman ilhan omar denying to comment about her anti-semitic comments. let's find out more. our next guest lives in the congresswoman's district. the congresswoman has zero regard for jewish-americans. tony lazaro joins us now. what makes you say that? >> it is interesting, here in the fifth district of minnesota this is where the largest jewish population lives in the state and people are starting to feel very uncomfortable with representative omar's comments recently. i think a lot of people were very open-minded to her in the beginning but a lot of that has changed recently with her repeatingly so close together making these type of remarks that really show zero support to
israel whatsoever. connell: she came out against other democrats like president obama saying hope and change was a mirage. >> yeah. i think what is really interesting is the other democrats she going after along with aoc and rashida tlaib is really hurting the democrats in the swing districts around this district for instance the most where they're really trying to distance themselves from comments like hers because they're going to hurt them a lot more than her being from more of a safe blue district here in downtown. connell: you're in, democrats will represent this district. you're saying the rest of surrounding areas are distancing themselves and that could hurt the democratic party. what is the sense on the ground when you walk into coffee shops and the bars, hear about who is represent ising awe and what she is saying? >> i have a lot of friends who are moderates or democrats and they overwhelmingly do not agree with representative omar and i think that the line that people
are going to have to walk on to justify voting for her is going to become a lot more difficult. i think, even when you look at people like speaker pelosi or representative dean phillips here in minnesota, another democrat, these people are definitely starting to get annoyed by the comments she is making because they don't do a service to democrats. they will be used more as talking point for republicans to show who the extremist party is in this country. connell: who is your link to the jewish community? >> i have tremendous amount of jewish friends. half of my business partners are jewish. it is incredible. you talk to senator rudy boshwitz. a powerful them per of the jewish community and former u.s. senator. the jewish community does not like to hear this type of thing. they're very supportive of israel needless to say. they do overwhelmingly vote democrat. connell: got you, tony. i have to end it there. interesting to see because she
had to get jewish votes to get that seat. tony, thanks so much. >> thank you. connell: straight ahead. they're in the country illegally. students at one school are trying to crowd fund for immigrants. because hey, tomorrow's coming up fast. nature's bounty. because you're better off healthy. neighbors... loved ones. living with diseases like cancer, epilepsy, mental health conditions and hiv. maybe you're one of them. but new medicare rules could deny access to the latest, most effective therapies... therapies that keep them healthy. are medicare cuts that save less than one percent worth the risk to millions of patients? president trump promised to protect medicare... we need him to keep his word.
♪ steve: in less than an hour the united kingdom parliament will debate a revised brexit or british exit plan could be the last chance to strike a deal before leaving the european union. benjamin hall joins us live from london on today's vote as separation day quickly approaches. reporter: steve, it has been 2 1/2 years since the uk voted to leave the eu that is 2 1/2 years of the negotiations, still no agreement in place. uk is due to leave in 17 days.
theresa may hoping this will be her opportunity to seal her deal. she was in brussels late last night trying to clinch last minute concessions from european leaders on exactly how the relationship with the eu will move forward and she claims that she got them. >> mps were clear that legal changes were needed to the backstop. today we have secured legal changes. now is the time to come together to back this improved brexit deal and to deliver on the instruction of the british people. reporter: but britain's top lawyer, attorney general jeffrey cox just in the last hour has disagreed with her saying these new concessions which have is everything to do avoiding a hard border between ireland and northern ireland in the event of no agreement are not legally binding, suggesting the uk could be stuck in limbo in the eu forever. if today's vote at 3:00 does not pass, there are very few options left. one is to delay brexit, ask for
extension, try to get more concession is. the other, march 29th, testify seen days the uk crashes out with no deal in mace and that is widely seen as economic catastrophe waiting to happen. she lost to the largest parliamentary defeat in british history. we'll see if she does better today. steve: it's a cliffhanger. ainsley. ainsley: thanks very much, steve. resolution on college campus bias, ignoring conservative concerns and maga lifted as white supremacy there are number of crazy campus stories caught our eye. the latest, gone sag today university where the student government is under fire for attempting to crowd fund scholarships or illegal immigrants. here is campus reform cabot phillips. >> thank thank thank you for ha. ainsley: tell us what is happening in the school. >> university of gonzaga tried to institute $2.50 hike to fund
this. they viewed it as breaking immigration law. they stepped back, if you want to donate to this you're allowed to do so. it is private school. they are private citizens. it is dangerous that the university is encouraging this and message it is sending. incentivizing more people to come here illegally. when you see extra benefits and added reward for people coming in here illegally. it tells people you can ignore certain immigration laws if they make you feel uncomfortable. we should teach rule of law for people to file that that is not isolated incident. ainsley: break the law and we'll pay for college. >> new jersey $1.6 million spent on scholarship funds for illegal immigrants. housing options for people here illegally. this is no new trend of giving special benefits to illegal immigrants. ainsley: we reached out to the school. have not herd from them. next is reed college. where is reed college. >> i'm not sure. ainsley: oregon. >> that shouldn't be too
surprising a list is given to ras, things they should look out for, phrases that condone white supremacy and support it. they say making america great again is white supremacist phrase and encourages ras to confront students. makes sure they know that phrase is steeped in white supremacy. ainsley: that is the pyramid. all the words you can't say, if you do you can report someone. make america great again is on there, president's slogan. >> right there. think about that. telling people that you want to make your country great is racist this is problem, there are legitimate, horrible, white supremacist people in america we should combat and combating water down that phrase, ideology, lumping everything you don't like, makes it hard to combat real racism and white supremacy. universities and students seeing anything they don't like about president trump, oppose it strongly as they can. they throw out words. not knowing the weight.
this included phrases pull yourself up by your own bootstraps. ainsley: they are not apologizing. to provoke deeper thought and discussion so each student can critically examine their own assumptions and beliefs. clem ton university ought out of south carolina. >> they anything involving political bias which makes sense because the student governments are often times dominated by liberal students. they don't realize that on campus, for all the talk of marginalize the communities there is no one more marginalized a conservative student holding opinions on the right. most universities spend millions of dollars on diversity initiatives and protecting marginalized communities which could be a good thing. when you're ignoring real marginalized communities like conservatives and doing nothing to foster diversity of thought and diversity of different ideas that is the where the problem comes in. i wish they were more concerned
to protect all ideologies on campus. ainsley: we reached out to clemson. haven't heard back. >> that is pattern. appreciate it. >> media grilling the democrats about problems with anti-semitism. >> does the president really believe democrats hate jews. >> does he really believe democrats hate jews as he said on the south lawn. ainsley: family said to say good-bye to their loved one in a funeral home but then -- >> went up to view her body, no, this is not my sister. that's no!

opportunities, "time" trying to answer if you would step talking. i would finish my statement. the president has laid out clearly his position on this matter. democrats had a number of opposition to condemn specific comments and refused to do that. that is question frankly you should ask democrats with their position is. steve: let's bring in mike huckabee, former governor of arkansas. fox news contributor. author of rare, medium, done well, make most of your live. father of the woman at the podium in the white house. good morning to you. >> good morning. great to be with you guys. steve: great to have you here as well. they were asking, on friday the president told the reporters that quote, democrats have become an anti-israeli party. they have become an anti-jewish party and that's too bad. that is where that line of questioning was going. it all has to do with the freshman congresswoman who made the anti-semitic comments. >> well, what, we've got to understand is, when they make the comments the democrats don't
really push back. they did the resolution, it was meaningless. they didn't call out specifically omar for her comments but they made it so watered down that it was absurd and completely meaningless. i think when you're dealing with anti-semitism you have to push back hard, you have to push back directly. remember nancy pelosi was defending it, she just didn't know what she meant. that is insult to her, that she is not smart enough to know that she is using anti-semitic language which she clearly was. ainsley: we talked to a young lady earlier in the show, her name is elizabeth pitco, she said, she is jewish, she is tired of what the democratic party is doing. she started this organization, a movement, jetoxodus. listen to this. >> there is anti-semitism in the democratic party. it was not the original anti-semitism which was lack of leadership. they were supposed to condemn what happened but failed.
the anti-semitism start the with omar got worse and worse with supporters in her own party, when leadership failed to condemn that, that shows they're a party of anti-semitism? ainsley: what is your reaction? >> i think she has a good point. that there is organized effort to say to other jewish people there is increasingly no room for you in democratic party, not only allow or tolerate but look the other way at language historically not just offensive. let's be clear. it has been dangerous for jewish people. for thousands of years jewish people have been haunted by anti-semitism that led to mass murder. i think we have to be very clear. i'm not saying democrats are proposing mass murder. i am making that clear. somebody will go nuts on it. i'm telling you historically when you start with antisemetism, marginalizing people, saying they're not as important as other people that is the beginning that leads to the path that is not just
offensive it is existentially dangerous to a group of people. and in this case it is dangerous to jews. connell: let's bring up another topic you're familiar with ash wednesday, where catholic get ashes on their forehead. that is new to one teacher who walked up to a fourth-grader, i will need to take that off now. it is ash wednesday. part of my religion. she made him do it anyway. here is william mccloud. >> teacher walked over and said like, what is that? i was like, it is ash wednesday and i'm catholic. no, it it is inappropriate, go take it off. she came me wipe, whatever they're called, made me wipe it off, wipe it off in front of my friends in the corner. and why did she wipe it off? i don't know. she just made me. steve: she was placed on administrative leave. yesterday, mike huckabee she had a press conference to explain what she did.
>> i had no idea it was a religious symbol. what i learned it was a sacred symbol for ash wednesday, i immediately apologized to the boy and his family. my entire life has been centered around respecting diversity. i would never, ever, intentionally disrespect any religion or any sacred symbol. it was a total misunderstanding. connell: is that possible, do you think? people write me and say, hey the church of latter day saints doesn't celebrate this. most of utah is mormon. it is possible this ritual slipped through the cracks. what do you think? >> most evangelicals don't participate in ash wednesday either but certainly as evangelical know what it is. i have seen people who participate for, entirety of my life. so i would say that i find it difficult to believe that a
teacher, that any adult wouldn't be aware of it but let's assume the best, let's assume she truly did not know. then, as they love to say on the left side, this is a teachable moment but let's be clear, there ought to be greater level of respect. when the young man said this is an expression of my faith, he should have been given the opportunity to have been respected. i hope this is a great lesson for all. but i'm going to take the teacher at her word. she needs to learn a little more about the greater scope of culture and religion in the country in which she lives. steve: now she knows. as we all do. mike huckabee, thank you very much for joining us live today. >> always a pleasure. take care. connell: go in peace. ainsley: serve the lord. jillian has headlines. jillian: we're following a story out of california. parents are terrified when a registered sex offender tried to kidnap two children from a playground. there. police say marcus dewitt tried

when the body they were looking at was missing a mole. they were told it was covered up with makeup. the funeral home still isn't sure where norma is. but they may have already buried her. our fox affiliate reached out to the funeral home for comment. they had none. yikes! that is devastating. ford could be bringing movie night to the open road. the automaker patenting a bed after pup truck into a movie theater. the accessory would come in two pieces. one to hold up a screen and other to support a projector to snap into place. the ford has not said whether they plan to make the design a reality. seems like that would be very safe. steve: so it's a drive-in that actually drives. ainsley: i'm worried about the story about the lady that was buried. connell: how are your maps? how are your people? >> they work well. what is your name. >> aaron from texas.
