package. steve: pie in a package? like mcdonald's? brian: two pies come that little slot do you know what i'm talking about? ainsley: one in a slot at mcdonald's. two pies in a slot. like a frozen pie? brian: what did you say? >> drake cakes drake's or hostess. brian: i don't want a whole pie i just want a bite. steve: it's pie day have some pie. ainsley: warm apple pie ala mode. steve: votin ainsley: griff jenkins is live in washington as the president issues one last warning. hey, griff. griff: good morning, guys. think about what we are about to watch. the republican led senate is about to issue a stinging rebuke. he is warning senators on
both side of the aisle making a big mistake voting against him and he has found his veto pen. >> anybody going against border security, drug trafficking, human trafficking, that's a bad vote. we will see whether or not i have to do the veto and it will be, i think, all very successful regardless of how it all works out. >> yesterday, vice president pence toured customs and borders training facility in virginia sending a message to republican senators. as it stands, five are signaling they will vote with the democrats. susan collins, lisa murkowski, rand paul, thom tillis and mike lee. he attempted a last minute compromise declaration putting limits on future presidents' use of declarations. it was shot down. minority leader schumer is bringing pressure. >> you ought to stand up to fear. do the right thing no matter who is in the white house. our republican friends know
the right thing to do. they should not be afraid to do it. >> here's the math. it only takes four defections to block which means they have one to spare. even if it does pass today, it's clear there are not enough votes to override a veto which would be a two thirds vote, guys? steve: that's right. griff, thank you very much. the president has made it clear he is going to veto. when you think about the mike lee resolution that he was suggesting where essentially this time they get through with this particular resolution of disapproval, but then the president would limit his own presidential power. why would president trump ever agree to that? brian: such a stupid thing to troll around. we have this fox news alert. ♪ as expected and tweeted out yesterday or as texted outs to a local fox station yesterday. beto o'rourke will officially join the 2020 quest to become the democratic nominee and the next president of the united states. ainsley: he is on the cover of vanity fair. there is an article in there that we have all read it
talks about his family kids and wife and when he recognize they'd had a spark, that he had a gift. his wife said we realized he had a gift third stop in the senate campaign which ted cruz won. every seat was taken and wall space was filled. you could feel the wall moving. it's not clear that beto that everyone was looking for but just like that people were ready for something. steve: just like that. different candidates have had different ways to announce, this is one of the most unique. the fact of the matter is he text add tv station yesterday down in texas ktsm. they received a text. they said i'm really proud of what el paso did and what palsz represents. it's a big part of why i'm running. and that really tipped off issue why he is running. this city is the example of its best. beto o'rourke announced 2020 run for president. last run was for senate and
keep in mind he lost to ted cruz. brian: vanity fair has a huge article and feature on him. almost as if they helped launch his campaign. here is a quote from it. he says i want to be in it, man, i'm just born to be in it he point out he has this huge library as if it's a big plus that he reads books. we would assume that and all the presidential libraries there a writer there is a sense he belongs on that. as if a book of a president is going to be in there a lot of charisma and presence. one of the reasons he is not running for senate because he personally gets along with senator john cornyn did not relish the fact of running against him. i know abraham lincoln did it very tough to lose an election for the senate and then try to get the ultimate prize and that's the presidency. ainsley: he said his biggest vulnerability is being a white man in a democratic party that's yearning for a woman or a person of color. what's different he was complimenting some of the other candidates in the democratic party in the article. but he says he is a youthful
uniter, he is willing to listen and learn from right wing voters and he is willing to work with republicans, he says. steve: keep in mind, he is from down in texas. what does he stand for? well, he has been in the u.s. congress. he has had some posts in local politics down in el paso. here are some of beto o'rourke's positions. while the president of the united states is for the wall. beto o'rourke is against the wall. he voted against ice. he voted against kate's law and voted against trump tax cuts there is more. saints. ainsley: he is for single pair healthcare. voted against long-term abortions voted against sanctioning iran and called law enforcement the new jim crow. brian: if he is elected he wants to take up the barrier. take out the fence. man, you talk about a different policy when it comes to borde border control.
i don't know how people are going to feel about that in texas, california or arizona. steve: it would be binary choice one person if it were beto o'rourke vs. donald trump. donald trump is for a wall. beto o'rourke wants to take the wall down. karl rove is somebody who has watched texas politics for a very long time and he thinks it's curious that vanity fair came out with this cover with the fawning review as well and said this on the channel last night. >> i think it is interesting that he has essentially made a proforma announcement of his presidential candidacy with the term vanity in it. the guy served a couple terms on the city council of el paso and three unmemorable terms in the u.s. congressman, i have just been born to be in it. it's a pretty extraordinary article. brian: yeah, he just talks about how as a kid he was a screw up and embarrassed his dad. he stopped talking to him.
ainsley: lots of colorful language in the article. steve: can you probably tell i want to run i do. i think i would be good at it of course, ladies and gentlemen, it's up to all of you. brian: research comes from other candidates that might not be impressed with beto o'rourke. he says he doesn't prepare for any speeches. ainsley: just goes out there and wings it. if i'm not prepared i will go up there and introduce myself and take a bunch of questions. steve: anyway, we are going to have the video. he officially has a video out. we believe it became available just about 9 minutes ago. there is a technological process in converting it from, i don't know fotomat to something we can show on tv. brian: we have a fotomat. ainsley: we are working on it? steve: 6:10 in new york city. jillian has news from the
mob. jillian: a new york city mob boss is gunned down outside his home. gambino family leader shot several times in staten island. the gunman sped away in a blue pickup truck and is on the run. unclear if this is a mafia hit or rogue gunman. he is the highest ranking mobster killed in new york since 1985 when john gaddy ordered the murder of another boss. russia probe may soon be coming to an answered. andrew weissmann will leave the special counsel and doj all together. he was the leading attorney in the case against paul manafort. today congress is examined to ask the faa why it waited so long to ground boeing 737 max planes. the agency planning to brace lawmakers. new evidence showing a startling connection between

home. it happened in san jose, california. ainsley: she was stabbed to death. the mayor blasting the county's policy of ignoring requests by ice which issued nine detention orders against him prior to her murder. and issued a tenth after his arrest. brian: paul kelly is the president of san jose police officer's demanding the sanctuary laws be changed. because of those laws this guy was protected. aisles is kept at bay and he goes out and kills. what's it going to take for some reasonable rational person to allow law enforcement to do their job, sir? >> you know, it's simple. if you are undocumented, and you are committing violent crimes and you are convicted, you should go to jail, do your time, and then be deported. it's that simple. ainsley: why didn't that happen? >> well, there's definitely a problem with the laws. if the laws weren't as messed up as they were, our victim would be alive.
what has to happen. brian: go ahead. >> what has to happen is whether it's state laws or county laws that created this, that's our problem and those need to be changed immediately and that's what we are asking for. brian: are you against the sanctuary city theory that if you tell people they are not going to be deported they will be more honest about unsavory characters amongst them? >> if there is violations in regards to violent crimes, whether it's the sanctuary state laws, whether it's certain county laws throughout california and across this nation, they absolutely need to be deported after serving their time. ainsley: if you look at what he has been accused of in the past, possession of methamphetamine, kidnapping, burglary, if he were in our country legally, would he be behind bars and would she still be alive today? >> absolutely.
this is a problem everyone needs to focus on. the american police officer is tired of the debate would what we are imernsd fixing these laws in california and across the nation now before other people in our community are injured. brian: listen to what they are saying. this james williams. he says he blames ice. ice should have gotten a warrant here. they could have gotten a warrant here and the county's practice has always been to honor warrants that are issued. why didn't they have a warrant? >> i think it's important that it's as simple as picking up the phone in january one of the ice detainers was ignored and 45 days later bambi was dead. ainsley: tell us about her. wasn't he stocking her for a while? how did it get to this. >> yes. he has actually in that neighborhood looking at her and others and he was
stalking her. and essentially what has to happen is these people need to get to the table. leaders, legislators and seriously talk about what's going on in california in order to stop these laws. because they are not working. brian: let me ask something. if law enforcement combines, gets together and starts pushing back on their own democratically led politicians in that state that's pretty much the only thing you can do. there is no republican push back or significant presence there. >> absolutely. what i can say is. this this guy is a monster. and there is absolutely no reason in the world bambi should have died there is others that we know and have talked about. officer singh in newman, california. the same thing. in regards to deportation, we are not talking about dreamers and jay walking tickets. what we are talking about is violent, sexual predators that are convicted and there
should be no protection for them in this country if they do that. brian: trying to protect illegals from ice. that's the problem. that's what politicians are doing. trying to vilify ice workers and ice officers instead of vilifying the illegals. ainsley: as a result this lady is dead and she leaves behind a son. thanks so much for joining us, paul. >> thank you. ainsley: you are welcome. felicity huffman and lori laughlin sparking outrage: tomi lahren says it's time stop idolizing celebrities. she is next. brian ♪ baby i'm sorry ♪ i'm not sorry ♪ steven could only imaginem 24hr to trenjoying a spicy taco.burn, now, his world explodes with flavor.

steve: welcome back to our program. hey, later today the british parliament is going to decide whether or not to delay brexit or the british exit. brian: welcome to the story that never ends. benjamin hall is live in our london bureau. benjamin, it's hard to imagine a bigger mess. >> you know what brian, steven, ainsley, things are going from bad to worse. yesterday we saw members of theresa may's own cabinet and government voting against her to remove no deal off the table. that was one of the key threats she had against the european union. parliament now rejecting both no deal and also her deal, which they have said is some kind of a useless middle ground. so now theresa may threatening parliament with a stark choice. she is saying look at my deal again or we risk staying inside europe. >> the option before us is
the same as they have always have been. we could leave with a deal which this government has negotiated in the past two years. we could leave with a deal we have negotiated second referendum but that which risk no, sir brexit at all. >> the european parliament are now asking the u.k. to decide what exactly it is they do want. what relationship they want having rejected everything else. and today they made stepping forward to decide whether or not they should open trade talks directly with the trump administration. so today we will hear another vote in parliament and they will be voting to see whether or not they should extend or delay brexit. that means there is every chance from there that the u.k. doesn't leave the eu. back to you. ainsley: clearly an emotional issue. thank you so much, benjamin. steve: that's a nice way of saying it's a mess. ainsley: can't even hear her screaming over her. it's the largest ever
college sceeght scam. brian: felicity huffman and lori loughlin paying millions to get their kids into elite colleges. steve: here with reaction to the ongoing fallout is fox nation host tomi lahren out on the west coast where a lot of these celebrities live. what do you make of operation varsity blues? >> well, listen. in hollywood, for entertainment industry when they are not cozying up to or covering up for people like harvey weinstein, jussie smollett, r. kelly, the list goes on, they are bribing to get their children into elite universities. this is par for the course. they don't think they are going to get caught because elitists never think they are going to get caught. they think there is a separate system for them. that they deserve it. they are entitled to this meanwhile they preach all the time about fairness and equality and they are the moral wardens of our time and do something like this. i wish i could say i'm surprised but sadly i am not at all. ainsley: dr. drew had this to say about the whole issue. watch. >> all roads lead to
narcissism. we have had a narcissistic turn in this country for 30 to 40 years. when i worked in the hospital i saw all kinds of narcissistic. cluster b is all we saw 100 percent of the time. sociopath, narcissist border wall. if you are a parent, your child is an extension of you and you cannot stand to see them uncomfortable. and so you have to save them from every discomfort, what their achievements are are your achievements are. you have to make sure they achieve. it's a freakin' mess. brian: tell you what, tomi, on top of that, the daughter lori loughlin's daughter when she gets word that her mom is caught up on this scandal and doesn't belong at usc. she is on a yacht one of the usc trustees worth $100 million. the yacht. >> doesn't surprise me at all. again, this is bigger than just a scandal. this is hollywood in general. we idolize these people and
give them so many passes after everything that's gone down with the entertainment industry in the last three to five years specifically. why are we still giving these people a pass and idolizing and allowing them to be the instructures of morality and listen to them on a variety of issues. we need to throw it out and pay attention to average americans and experts and stop giving hollywood so much credit they don't deserve it. ainsley: it's okay to make a lot of money. you can't break the law and think that you are better than everybody else. >> well, absolutely. and, again, i think people are starting to see that really the layers is being peeled back on those in the entertainment industry and we'll be more skeptical. i hope we are. steve: we will be watching you at fox nation. ainsley: thanks, tomi. >> thank you, guys. brian: uc case by case basis. steve: most didn't know what their parents were up. to say they are in a pickle. a bullet comes feet away

that's one of the things beto o'rourke talks most about he actually lives in el paso a couple of blocks from mexico. pete: what we know is beto loves beto. he believes he is the second coming of who should come for president. he wants to tear down the border wall. he believes in sanctuary cities. he doesn't support -- this is a guy who sees the world completely opposite of president trump. down on the border. believes illegal immigration is okay. actually the lifeblood of this country. he will define that debate. he have some supporters, he will. i don't know how he ultimately different united states himself. brian: what's attractive about him if people really believe he could deliver texas. if he delivers texas that reconfigures the map. pete: he didn't defeat ted cruz. not clear how he would defeat president trump in texas in 2020. ainsley: or even a joe biden. pete: border will be a big issue. today a big vote in the senate whether or not to uphold the president's
emergency declaration. i had a chance to sit down with the vice president mike pence in west virginia there is a training facility for customs and border protection down there. looks like we are sitting in the woods. actually sitting in a training facility for our border agents. i asked him. he had a stark message for senators republican senators what this vote means about whether you support the president and security on the border. take a listen. >> what did you see here today? >> this training facility is where our custom and border protection personnel train through virtual reality and in real circumstances to make sure that the people that are on the front lines have the background, the experience to protect our border and come home safe. >> couple of guys in suits out in the woods. recently on capitol hill, the president declared a safety emergency on the border to get access to funds to build the wall that congress wouldn't build. what is your message to senators on capitol hill, it's republicans at this point wavering on whether to
vote on this. >> it's undeniable it we have a crisis on our southern border. now, democrats continue to say that it's a manufactured crisis. but the facts tell the story. what we want to see the senate do this week is to stand with the president to stand with the president's declaration of a national emergency. look, a vote against president trump's national emergency is a vote against border security. a vote against the president's national emergency declaration is a vote to deny the humanitarian and security crisis that's happening at our southern border. so we're urging every member of the senate. set politics aside. recognize that we have a crisis. the president has the authority under the national emergencies act and vote down the resolution of disapproval, stand with the president and stand for border security. that's what the american people want. pete: do you see any crisis and legitimacy of a wall that has to be built through emergency funding? is this something the democrats will continue to
rail against? tear down the wall? >> you have to understand that the funding the president requested throughout the government shutdown, the funding that we are appropriating now under the law through the national emergency is all funding that the department of homeland security told us that they needed to construct a physical barrier, a wall in 10 areas of high density population. where the people wearing the green uniforms of customs and border protection have told us that they need a barrier to do their job and to do it safely. pete: there is some reporting about an event yesterday aei put on, vice president cheney had an interview with you. and he came after you and made some comments about how this administration's foreign policy seems more like the obama's administration talking about nato and a pullout from syria. your response so some of those criticisms from former vice president cheney? >> well, look, i have great respect for vice president cheney woe had a good
vigorous debate over this past weekend. look, i told him when president trump ran for office, he made it clear that he is no fan of foreign deployments. that he wanted to brings an end to these endless wars. i know there are some who don't like the fact that the president has called on our nato allies to pay their fair share of our common defense to live up to their commitments, but, i just know that the american people appreciate. pete: there are many who do like that. >> a president who looks at our allies and says, look, we are going to do our part, you need to do your part. and that's what we call being a leader of the free world. pete: absolutely. sticking with vice presidents, joe biden former vice president may get in the race. he famously called you a decent guy and he took some heat for it your take on biden possibly getting into the race? >> well, look. they have an awfully big field on the other side. the reality that you see on the democrat side is it's largely being driven by the most extreme liberal elements in their party. and the way joe biden caved
in to liberal activists after making a kind comment toward me is evidence of the pressure that all of their candidates are going to face. so, truth of the matter is, you've got a party on the other side that is prepared to run on open borders, socialism, abortion on demand infanticide, medicare for all and the green new deal. and i like our chances in 2020. pete: thank you very much, sir. i appreciate your time. >> thanks, pete. brian: great job, pete. in particular the way you ended it right there about the field and the difference. even rahm emanuel came out in the atlantic and said hey, democrats. do you want to hand another four years to -- because of the green new deal green deal, because you are running too far to the left. steve: open borders. pete: very much. so beto o'rourke is the one who famously said i want to tear down some of trump's wall. that's the contrast. take that to the american people. i think the vice president said it well. they feel confident about that. ainsley: that was a mock
wall in the background? >> training wall. train the trainer environment where they go out and train the rest of border patrol. it was a very cool day. steve: another interview coming up. pete: kirstjen nielsen will be on with us at 7:30. she has a lot to say about that vote as well. brian: is that going to be what you are wearing? pete: that was in the conference room not the woods. brian: fantastic. ainsley: i like the camo. pete: that woul brian: that would have been perfect for the woods. your one day off. ainsley: no then we wouldn't have been able to see him. [laughter] steve: pete, thank you very much. see new an hour. ainsley: jillian is behind us. jillian: lots of compliments on that ty. tie, i complimented him, too. a smuggler is caught on camera using two young girls as decoys at the border. you can see the two girls just 6 and 9 years old dropped over a wire fence into california to distract

he is either stepping down because his part of the probe, manafort is now over. he didn't get all the jail-time they wanted him to get and it's over. he will sit in federal prison and presumably be tried here in new york. that's one way to look at it the other way to look at it is this is coming to an end. perfect storm. manafort, flynn, weissmann leaving. that would mean bill barr there. rosenstein leaving. that would mean that the mueller report or reports, i believe there will be more than one, are likely to come out soon. two ways to look at this. steve: while mueller's name is on the probe it's weissmann's whose name is. >> judge: set most tenacious and skillful trial lawyer on their team. brian: a democrat. judge: is he a democrat. bob mueller is a republican that wind indicate he wouldn't be the trial lawyer on the roger stone case which is presently scheduled to be tried in october.
seven months from now. ainsley: what about paul manafort he got a little more than seven years. judge: this is a very unusual situation for manafort. when he pleaded guilty in federal court before judge jackson who sentenced him yesterday, the guilty plea was last year, the nature of what he said acknowledged not only that he committed bank fraud and mortgage fraud that violated federal crimes but also that violated state crimes. stated differently, the indictment that was revealed yesterday by a grand jury here in new york city, he has effectively already admitted to the behavior that he has been accused of under that it will be very easy for them to prosecute him. why did they do it? they are worried that the president might pardon him and the president does not have pardon power for state crimes. brian: what is it new york's business for? they don't have enough on their plate. judge: they do have a lot on their plate, brian. these are new york banks that he committed the fraud in front of or against for a new york mortgage.
the state actually waited until the federal case was over which is the standard operating procedure. steve: the president could pardon him and then he has to answer for the state crime. judge: interesting thing that happens what happens if he is not pardoned. how are they going to try him in state court if he is spending 7 and a half years in prison. brian: can't wait for the liberty file today on fox nation you can get on my app. which i ordered it and paid. >> judge: so good at it, brian. brian: it's your show liberty file. ainsley: thanks, judge. steve: a grim prediction. it could be the worse year for measles in decades. hundreds of cases confirmed. one texas doctor says he will be turning away unvaccinated patients. he doesn't want them in his waiting room. he will join us next. ainsley: marine vet knows a thing or two about mental toughness. he is putting us through boot camp coming up ♪ ain't that america home of the free ♪ yeah

ainsley: measles used to be eradicated now the disease is spreading with 280 confirmed cases and the cdc 2019 could be the worse year for measles since 1993. steve: now a texas pediatrician is taking stand, refusing to treat unvaccinated children at his practice as the number of measle cases in his state grows to 11. ainsley: that pediatrician dr. albert karem joins us now. thank you for being with us. >> good morning steve and ainsley. ainsley: good morning. tell us about measles. what are the symptoms?
>> measles is very highly contagious disease viral not bacterial. antibiotics can't help you with this. causes runny nose, a cough, horribly red eyes followed by a very particular rash that spreads throughout the body. in cases in which the measles spread, side effects include pneumonia which can be life-threatening and then of course a devastating disease encephalitis or inflammation of the brain. steve: i remember i had it when i was a kid. doctor i understand you had it. you remember what that was like. if the disease was eradicated. why the come back? >> so, eradication was declared by the cdc in the early 2,000s. comebacks are going to happen from several sources, international travel to countries in which the disease is not eradicated and then travelers will come back into the united states. we are worried about the large number of children
unvaccinated. if the measles gets into that population of unvaccinated children. we will have an outbreak and it will be bad. for those that think that measles is a benign disease just as you saidly as it a child. i remember my morning turning the lights on and i would scream with pain. i remember looking at my skin at the horrible roosh that i had. so i remember it as a 4 or 5-year-old kid. ainsley: can you i d die from it. >> of course you can. all you have to do is look in europe right now where there were well over 70, almost 80,000 cases predominantly in ukraine and 70-some odd deaths. here we are in modern society and european society with that many deaths. these are preventible deaths. this is a preventable disease. steve: that's one of the reasons you don't want to see children who are not vaccinated. doctor, last week we had a young man who testified before congress, he's now 18. he's now vakd himself but his mother would not vaccinated her children. she has three other kids, i believe. hadn't coul vaccinated any of
them except the young man. what do you say to parents who think these vaccines are dangerous to their children? >> vaccines are one of the true health accomplishments of mankind. we can talk about all the things that we have done. antibiotics and surgeries and techniques and stuff. but truly vaccinations have to rank in my opinion as the number one reason that we as a society are as healthy as we are. and so for parents who are doubtful about u immunizations can i tell you i have immunized all six of my children. my wife and i are proud parents of six children. they are all eu78 marijuanaized. my grandchildren are all immunized. vaccine are safe and effective. ainsley: beto o'rourke is in the race. more on his big announcement at the want to hour. steve: there he is on the couch with his wife.

who didn't know what their parents were up to. brian: i think it's finite number of kids that didn't know what their parents were up. to say plus, if the kids got in without knowing, they will get kicked out without knowing. if they are going to school right now no way those kids should stay. in doubles down the insult. mark riedel is also in trouble. the harvard guy in his 30's now who actually played tennis at harvard who basically has taken the test for all these guys at the img academy. steve: he was 36 years old. he shows up to take a test for a high school kid. then again, you have to keep in mind the proctors in some cases were actually in on the deal. brian: $200,000 they got. ainsley: a family in new york. they spent $125,000 for their daughter. listen to how they got the proctor. they paid this proctor to change her scores on act and sat. steve: what was it originally. ainsley: her original sat score was 23 out of 36. perfect score was 36. he changed it to 35 or she.

counselor who says that you know, not rich and famous parents bribe and cheat and lie all the time to try to get their kids into school. the quotation is i knew parents who whipped up a charity for their kid and did a fake photo shoot with disabled children. the parents set it all up and said the kid raised all the money but truly it was a single donor the parents it was just a scam to get the kids into college. it's not just the rich and famous. it's everybody is trying to help their kid get into a college. ainsley: what good does that do? what does it teach the child lie your way. steve: cheat the system. brian: did i sell most of my daughter's girl scout cookies. steve: i sold all my daughter's girl scout cookies. brian: what kind of lessons. ainsley: i sold all of my own. steve: i sold 300 boxes. everybody knew i wasn't a girl scout at the time. tomi lahren had this observation about the elites. >> this is really bigger than just a scandal.
this is just hollywood in general. these elitists never think they are going to get caught. they think there is a separate system for them, that they deserve it, that they're entitled to this. meanwhile they preach all the time about fairness and equality. why are we still giving these people a pass and still idolizing them and allowing them also to be the instructures of more rattle and listen to them on a variety of issues. we need to throw it out and pay attention to average americans and experts and stop giving hollywood so much credit. brian: going to grow a lot bigger than 50. we are going to be reporting on this for while. the fbi is going to be going to town on it. ainsley: the kids that don't know should they be kicked out. brian: they have got to go out. triples down on the wrong they shouldn't go to school they didn't qualify for. ainsley: i agree. brian: their hanthe parents putr hand on the scale. steve: the schools are going to decide on a case by case basis i human kids will continue to go to schools. they might drop out because
of scorching spotlight. brian: of course. steve: elizabeth warren, this is somewhat ironic. elizabeth warren who now famously misrepresented he or shherher teenage on a texas r card is slamming these parents who lied. >> it is just stunning. i mean, the notion that people thought they could keep cheating like this and build this, evidently, built this huge cheating network in order for the children of the rich and the powerful to make it in to fancy schools. to me, it's just one more example of how the rich and powerful know how to take care of their own and everybody else just gets left behind. i think that's wrong. ainsley: i think for people who didn't care about her using her heritage before now they will because of this story it just brings to light that you have to be truthful when you fill out these forms. brian: i just hope i have never seen a story hit --
cross more boundaries than. this no one cares if you are a republican or democrat. everyone knows this is wrong. everybody has an experience directly or indirectly with this process. even grandparents watching right now know what their grand kids are getting ready to go to a test. some have to go to community college in order to get to a place where they have the academics to get into these schools. ainsley: imagine if you applied to usc and didn't get in and watched the video of this young girl. brian: on a yacht. ainsley: know she go is on 100-million-dollar yacht. fine to make money. you can't lie and use your status. steve: but, how many people inflate their resumes when they are using a job. ainsley: it's wrong to do it. steve: i'm telling you a lot of people do it. how many people inflate their biographies when they apply different schools and whatnot. ainsley: it doesn't make it right. steve: tell us what you think about it firstname.lastname@example.org or facebook. ainsley: character is everything. brian: you said you were an

associations as well as the flying public. they are very relieved because this aircraft needs to sit down for a moment and boeing needs to look at the -- what we call a clean sheet design. and also to take a look at -- and the cool of the day and night to see if we can shift the center of gravity of this aircraft more towards the nose, essentially what we have is an engine mount on the wing and on the wing. and when the plane tries to climb, it is hitting a 14 angle -- degree angle of tack. so the computer system wants to pull the plane down, nose down. and then the pilots are trying to correct and has a waving action and ultimately you get into a negative stall and the plane crash into the ground. steve: sounds like the two planes that crashed were similar the "new york times" is reporting and apparently some pilots have reported problems before. oliver, you must made it sound like yesterday we were
talking to some people who said maybe just a software fix. you are talking about changing the center of gravity on an airplane. that's more than, you know, downloading an app. >> you are right. it's a clean sheet design but also boeing is going to consider the option of the software patch. this is essentially what the f.a.a. administrator was saying. they are cautious because, essentially, you are trying to use the data between the two crashes and see if you can correct differential lift on the engine in its current position. if they can't get that software patch to look at the differential lift that's coming from the engine, which should not happen, steve. steve: no kidding. >> they have to reconsider remounting the position in a different position and moving the cg towards the nose so we can have a better center of gravity for the aircraft. steve: thank you for making it so simple to understand. oliver mcgehee used to be with the department of transportation. sir, thank you. >> thank you, steve. steve: good to have you. all right.

you personally or professionally even about your family, how do you turn down the internal emotion meter? >> it's difficult to do. it definitely requires a lot of practice. but basically it's a matter of trying to shelf that initial feeling and understand that i'm feeling emotion, i can't react emotionally or i will say something i will regret. brian: what's wrong with reacting emotionally. >> look at politics right now. you will see the problem with that unfortunately emotions you are making bad decisions that way. brian: you also say i guess in the marines they scream at you and try to get personal and want you to overact and that's part of boot camp. you say you have to be willing to suspend your disbeliefs. what do you mean? >> i mean go back to the current political environment, unfortunately there is a total inability to suspend the disbelief. you believe, you believe what i believe. i don't want to hear anything. stop talking. i believe it, you are not changing my mind. that's a problem. brian: how do i change that? >> you have to internally find a way to take your belief and set it aside and try to understand where somebody else is coming from a logical standpoint. brian: how do the marines put that into you? >> they beat it into us
actually. brian: what do you mean they beat it into you. >> they mentally. brian: they put you through the paces and when you overreact you are not passing. when you underreact you are. >> you cannot do things based on emotion. you have to weigh that out with logic as well. brian: compartmentize you talk about common ground. what do you mean? >> finding something in common. dan crenshaw the congressman is a prime example of this. he lost his eye. he basically had chris evans come to capitol hill for some veterans issues, i guess. apparently, politically they don't agree on a lot of the stuff. dan actually changed his eye, his glass eye to be the shield for captain america for chris evans. political views were very, very different. they agreed on something, veterans issues. it's finding common ground. compartmentizeing feelings finding something you agree on. brian: keep your emotions down you are able to think clearly. if your emotions are high it clouds your judgment. >> inversely related. how often do you lose your
temper and regret it rarely do you say i am so glad i flew off the handle. you have something else so lacking especially as i watch these fraternal congresswomen and men come in. they are not listeners. they came in talking. i look at cory booker, for example. he didn't say a word for a year and a half i'm new here. watch these other freshman walk in and came in talking. you say be professional listeners? >> we have innate need to be understood, to be heard. unfortunately we are horrible listeners, mentally tough people they listen with the intent to understand not with the intent to reply. brian: when you listen and respond, people bond with you quicker because they know that your views matter. >> we are very simple as humans. brian: all right. simple in a good way? >> simple in a good way. brian: want to be mental tough where do you go. >> mental toughness speaker.com. brian: he did it marines. you don't have to because he did. eric thank you so much. >> thank you, sir. brian: video insane a plane slamming into a truck on a highway. what the driver is saying about that close call?

hour. what else did you do? >> we went into the woods and training facility which is a customs and border protection training facility. before we were in the woods with the vice president he was taking a tour of this facility talking to border patrol agents and other folks. kirstjen nielsen who is the secretary of homeland security was there with us. this is a debate. is it an emergency or not. how should the senate vote? what's happening down there with increases. we asked her all about it take a listen. >> madam secretary, thank you so much for joining "fox & friends." we appreciate it? >> my pleasure. thank you for being here. pete: as you know there is a big vote in the u.s. senate about the president's emergency declaration on building the border wall. your take on where that sits right now. >> i think it's a moving target. i know what i have been talking to members of congress about which is in my mind it boils down. it can be complicated first blush but it boils down to two questions. dolls the president have authority to declare an emergency? he does. it's statutory authority. the congress gave him in the law. and secondly, is there an
emergency? and i could certainly talk to you and anyone who is willing to listen about how that is definitive and resounding yes. pete: this administration putting a focus on the border. yet, we are seeing apprehensions go up. why is that happening? >> it's interesting. if you boil it down, it's congress, courts and criminals. of the criminals have found a way to take advantage of the situation. they are trafficking, smuggling, they are preying on the migrants, they are also selling them a bill of goods. we have had some unfortunate court decisions. they clearly did not understand either the authorities in some cases but more importantly the operational effects of the security concerns. and then three congress fails to act. this is not a partson issue. not partisan to want to protect communities and not partisan to want to secure our border or homeland. and, yet, in this environment, congress refuses to act. pete: recently you took a lot of tough questions from mostly from the left side of the aisle. your critics of the approach of this administration, what are they getting wrong about
how you're approaching border security and things like family separation. they keep talking about cages. what are they missing in your approach? >> well, two things. one, i would say we are a law enforcement agency. so we enforce the law. you know, i said it before. but i really fear for our democracy when the body who creates the laws it telling the body who enforces the law just don't enforce the law. if they don't like the law they should change it the men and women at the department of homeland security have sworn an oath to protect communities to secure the homeland and to enforce the law that congress passed. the second one is there is just a lot of misunderstanding. many of the policies and the ways in which cbp has been protecting our community for decades are the same they are suddenly political and partisan. these are the professionals done this for 20, 30 years often at risk to their own lives. they say this is what we need to do to protect the border. pete: thank you so much. >> thank you. steve: pete's great
interview. this is clearly a full-court press by the administration to get as many republican senators later today to vote against the. pete: all the way. they are trying to make that zero sum vote. if you vote against us, forget about the precedence argument or idiosyncrasies. either you are with the president on border security. you want that wall, period, or you are voting against it the point to make good luck going back to your district or state as a republican senator in this trump era. steve: to explain that. pete: to explain you voted against the president trying to build the wall he said he would bring. a lot of pressure. a lot of people think it will go against the president. we shall see how it actually unfolds today. that's a tougher vote for some senators to take. brian: most about what's going on with kirstjen nielsen treat her with such disrespect on the hill. message carried what's going on with the border. they hit her with personal attacks. pete: spite. you watch the testimony against her. it's dripping with condescension. they are angry. and they take every bit of
hate they have on the trump administration on her. she handled herself very well, actually. ainsley: remember that meeting with nancy pelosi and all the democratic leaders were interrupting her when she was trying to explain all the numbers? pete: they don't want to hear the facts. i asked her that off camera how many folks are coming to actually watch what happens or see this training facility? very few unfortunately from the left. brian: kids with cages started with president obama. these are kids in facilities who come across the border and they can only stay there 20 days. ainsley: people sleeping if you missed the interview with the vice president we are going to show it again. pete: coming back in 8:00 hour more with the vice president in the woods near the training wall, yes. steve: happened in harr% ferry, pennsylvania. pete: thanks, guys. appreciate it 21.5 mention before the hour. jillian takes to us arkansas. jillian: let's go there for this story. arkansas and utah are one step closer to passing the nation's strictest abortion bans. lawmakers in both states sending bills to their governors' desks that would block pregnant women from getting abortions after 18
weeks. utah's governor says he will review the measure before making a decision. the governor of arkansas supports the legislation. careful's democratic governor takes convicted killers off death row. >> do we have the right to kill? not the deep and existential question. i don't believe we do. >> gavin newsom signing executive order to suspend the death penalty sparing more than 700 inmates over moral concerns. friends of lacy peterson are outraged. >> how is it humane how lacy and conner have died? do you think scott was humane about how he ended their life? ainsley: lacy's husband scott was sentenced to death after murdering lacy and their unborn son back in 2002. look at this. this is dash camera video at thacapturing a driver's lois call with a small plane. barely missing a tow truck.
the plane crashing into a ditch on the other side of the road. incredibly the pilot and passenger were not hurt. the driver of that tow truck felt so lucky after this he bought lottery tickets. wow. jillian: a college basketball coach let's excitement get the best of him. just watch this. [cheers] jillian: university of nebraska head coach tim miles tripping and falling down while celebrating his team making it to the big 10 tournament. miles laughing off the tumble getting up and making his way to the locker room. i fall victim to incidents like that all the time. so i feel the same. ainsley: even if you are in pain you have to get up and like own it whoo if you broke your leg then just hobble into the locker room and then call 911.
steve: thank you, jillian. ainsley: a possible bomb cyclone turns deadly blowing across the country. daniel groves hit and killed trying to help a driver in blizzard conditions. steve: in south dakota powerful winds nearly blowing a. trying to launch a weather balloon. i don't know but he tried. brian: janice dean would never try something like that. she tracks the weather full time. janice: this is historic blizzard. we had 100 mile-per-hour winds across the plain states incredible. dropped 33 mill bar in 23 hours. that's a big deal. we still have high winds across the plain states, the potential for tornadoes and flash flooding. blizzard conditions across the plain states. there are. so wind gusts in excess of 50 miles per hour. look at this amazing crowd that's with us today. hello, sir, how are you? what do you have here? >> a great book that i

shepard: fox news alert. beto o'rourke of texas is now running for president. the texas democrat released this video about an hour ago. >> i'm running to serve you as the next president of the united states of america. the only way for us to live up to the promise of america is to give it our all and to give it for all of us. we are truly now more than ever the last great hope of earth. ainsley: fox news chief national correspondent ed henry joins us to weigh in. ed: nothing bigger than that last hope of earth.
brian: speaking of the planet. ed: he has as much a chance as 20 or 30 other people who have gotten in. this idea that because he came close in texas that texas is in play in a presidential election seems like a stretch. but, where i hesitate is, look, this guy has an it factor that republicans shouldn't sleep on. he met with barack obama before jumping in. democrats want to fall in love again. they want to find somebody who going to be a great hope. steve: did a show with oprah. >> they are all in on that idea. i have to tell that you president trump has to be licking his chops of facing someone like this who has no accomplishments in the house. runs for the senate. his big ticket is i lost. i came close to beating ted cruz. yeah, he raised a lot of money and a lot of excitement. again, i don't want to minimize that is what i want to say is if you want to run against president trump who stood o up for forgotten man and woman. do you want to be on the cover of vanity magazine?
brian: he says is he a generational shift like jfk and honesty and decency of jimmy carter. ed: in the video he says i'm going to run a relentlessly positive campaign. why is he doing that? he wants this election, beto o'rourke to be a reaction to president trump. and the idea that, look, president trump is on the attack. he is on the attack. i'm going to be relentlessly positive. problem is we know from house campaign, senate campaigns and presidential races negative politics tend to work. and so this -- can a relentlessly positive candidate win? this president in 2016 first in the republican primary defined all of his opponents to the point that he tore them apart. so can beto survive? ainsley: in the article he talks about how he is k. unite republicans and listen to them. when the rubber hits the road, tough look at how they vote. he was anti-border wall, voted against ice, voted against kate's law and trump tax cut. supports single pair healthcare. voted against restrictions.
ed: i'm trying to see how he reaches across the aisle. you make a good point, ainsley. it's deeper than that. >> think about what happened when the president had his event down in el paso. no accident that he did it in beto's backyard, perhaps. some say he was trying to knock beto out early. wowrnt rally. there was a dispute who had more people. all of that two interesting things. beto o'rourke had this fencing around the stage where he was and everything and like okay, so you need a fence and security and all that around you but you don't want a border wall. and then, remember, did he an interview after all of that which when he said i don't want to juxtapose new wall i want to tear down what's there tearing down what barack obama supported, chuck schumer, nancy pelosi basically. he wants to go further extreme to the left on the wall than anybody else in this race. that's going to be hard for middle america. steve: is he in middle america. is he in iowa today for the next two days. so let's see what happens. see you this weekend. brian: still ahead on our show if i read the rundown
right. house minority leader kevin mccarthy will be here. ainsley: jay leno says is he tired of all the political jokes on late night these days. guess who saw it coming? mr. johnny carson. we have the tape. steve: carnack ♪ ♪d ♪ [friend] i've never seen that before. ♪ ♪ i have... ♪ uh, well, this will be the kitchen. and we'd like to put a fire pit out there, and a dock with a boat, maybe.

at customink.com >> everything now, if people don't like your politics, they -- everyone has to know your politics. now it's all very serious. everything is just so -- i would like to see a bit of civility come back to it, you know. all the comics, jimmy and colbert, everybody else, it's tough when that is the
only topic. brian: he used to be balanced jay leno calling out the politics of late night comedy. his predecessor saw it all coming. steve: joining us with reaction now is comedian loftus. good morning to you. >> good morning. how depressing is that to watch? it's such a bummer? brian: what do you mean? i mean it's like you know, leno wants to go back to the days of yore. carson did a great job it wasn't political. and now that's all it is politics, politics, politics. republicans are always the butt of the joke. it's just sad. steve: we have a sound bite in an interview with barbara walters back in 1984, johnny carson, who would make fun of republicans and democrats, whoever was in power, he would poke them. he had this to say about the dangers of getting too serious with your politics and your comedy. >> i think one of the
dangers, if you are a comedian which basically i am. if you starts to take yourself too seriously and start to comment on social issues, your sense of humor suffers. steve: and when you look, michael at the country right now, we are pretty much split down the middle. if you take a position on a social issue, you, as a business model are alienating half the audience. >> that's true. and if carson would have done that, back when there was like three channels, if carson would have alienated half the country, there would have been hell to pay. he would have been ruined. but now it's just this one sided, lopsided the right is horrible. orange man bad. trump is the end of us all. conservatives are just taking it. it really is shocking that america seems to be so cool with this like every night abc, nbc, cbs, they just broadcast that the right is a bunch of idiots and trump
is the worst person ever and conservatives are just like well, i will watch something else. politics is downstream from pop culture. and if conservatives don't get involved in the culture, it's going to be bye-bye country. ainsley: you know, i wonder if they even realize it because they live in new york, they live in hollywood. but you are a conservative, you travel the country for your tour. we are all from, rural areas where we do hear from people who say they miss the johnny carsons of this world. do you think the late night hosts even realize it because they surround themselves with people just like them. >> yeah. great point. they don't realize it and they are not -- they are not preaching to the entire choir of america. they are just going to continue -- they are fighting over the table scraps that's left over. they are all competing for the same anti-donald trump, anti-conservative audience. i will tell you the good for donald trump he is giving these guys a career. i don't know what they are going to do in 2024 when he
♪ brian: beto o'rourke officially launching his bid for the white house. >> we're truly now more than ever, last great hope of earth. brian: this is the guy who sees the world completely opposite of president trump. steve: hours from now the u.s. senate will consider blocking trump's emergency declaration. >> this decision is quite binary. you're for border security or your not. >> all the mains are grounded effective immediately. >> great move by the president trump. >> this illegal immigrant detained nine times. he is charged with murder. >> this guy is a monster.
if the laws were not as messed up as they were our victim would be alive. brian: operation varsity blues. >> i don't know if you can scream and throw up at the same time but that is how i felt. ♪ steve: last week when i was on brian's radio show how they were talking about putting kids faces on the sides of studio wall. brian, we can do better than that. we can put our faces on the front of the world headquarter. brian: you did. you're a man of action. ainsley: how do you feel when you see that? steve: i came in 4:00 in the morning. not like a lot of people looking at it. it is pretty cool. ainsley: because of you, you give us the opportunity to broadcast right here. wake everyone up around the world actually. steve: we're on the front of the
building. ainsley: god is good. steve: thank you very much for joining us on this thursday. ainsley: almost two minutes after the top of the hour. let's get to this. fox news alert. beto o'rourke officially launching his bid for the white house. >> this is a defining moment of truth for this country and for every single one of us. the challenges that we face right now, the interconnected crises in our economy, our democracy and our climate have never been greater. they will either consume us or afford us the opportunity to unleash the genius of the united states of america. this is going to be a positive campaign that seeks to bring out the very best from every single one of us. that seeks to unite a very divided country. steve: the former texas congressman, served three terms in the congress, throwing his hat in the ring after losing his congressional campaign to senator ted cruz last year. as you can see right there, he
is the 12th democrat to officially declare a presidential run. stand by, there could be double that number. brian: seems like the media is firmly in his corner. barack obama was with him in november. maybe he will be a political celebrity. he turned to social media, especially in texas. mobilized a lot of young voters as well as minorities. will kick off his campaign march 30th in he will el paso, texas. ainsley: he says in this article on the front cover of "vanity fair." he realized he had a gift, he and his wife, his third campaign tour or third campaign event. he doesn't need a script. he comes up there on stage. says whatever comes to mind. he takes questions, realizes he was able to do it, have a gift wants to unite republicans look how he votes, these are some of his position. anti-border wall, anti-i.c.e. voted against "kate's law." voted for single-payer health care. voted against late-term
abortions, voted against sanctioning iran and called law earn forcement the new jim crow. steve: which means he is for late-term abortion as weave seen in the last month 1/2, when you hook at the public surveys a majority of americans do not feel good about late-term abortions, particularly what we've heard, what was going on down in commonwealth of virginia and here in new york. ainsley: if biden gets in does he have a shot. steve: biden will get in. we had an expert two front-runners would be joe biden and kamala harris. brian: she flip-flopped on the death penalty. us used to before like she isn't. bait owe -- beto o'rourke, 11 democrats asking what you have done. i don't know how you stay positive if 11 people are going after you and your record.
that is the. he has a lot of talent. honesty, decency of jimmy carter, generational shift of jfk. that is a lot to live up to. ainsley: glowing article. definitely favorable for him. steve: not favorable for parents who had a lot of money trying to do whatever they could, including breaking the law to get their children into some elite colleges. as you know now operation varsity blues. lori laughlin and felicity huffman, two of the actresses there caught up in it. they have posted bond. they are out. john kennedy, who is a senator from the great state of louisiana, when he looked at this story, he didn't like it. >> this is some of the most odious, vial, repugnant, reprehensible conductive ever seen. made me want to scream. made me want to heave.
think about hundreds of thousands of kids out there tonight, who are studying hard, working their rear ends off, they believe in the american dream. then you have these chuckleheads like these parents come along and do because they're entitled much give me a break! this is why peach are angry. let me say it again. i vote, i vote federal prison. brian: wow, federal prison. keep in mind, this grow. you have nine coaches, you have two celebrities and a lot of rich people, just logic tells you that is what the fbi got in 10 months a whistle-blower went up arbitrarily, i have a story for you. if you see what they wrote up with 300 pages you know there will be a lot more coming as the indictment handed down yesterday. restrictions on her freedom. she can go shoot up in british columbia but for the most part she has to stay in the country as does lori laughlin. ainsley: according to this article in the post it is pretty
fascinating. we were talking about the families allegedly involved in this california. but one family the post is highlighting. they have live on fifth avenue. if you've been to the metropolitan museum of art. they live across the street from that. it is most expensive property in the country. the dad is founder of a food and beverage distributorship. according to this article they allegedly bought their daughter's way into college too. steve: one of their sons came out in front of the park avenue apartment. ainsley: fifth avenue. steve: no, park avenue. that is malcolm abbott. he is son. according to the "new york post" he was smoking on a blunt. he says this of all of is going around his parents. they are blowing this whole thing out of proportion malcolm abbott said outside the house that overlooks the metropolitan
museum of art. everyone has the right to go to college, man. he says his parents got roped into the scheme by somebody who cheated them. brian: that's fine. that is really not helping the family but we'll see. turns out that lori laughlin's daughter, when she got news that, this is a usc student, when she got news, celebrating on spring break on a yacht owned by a usc board member, trustee. steve: the president. brian: rick caruso. she was on a yacht in the bahamas with him. therefore the optics couldn't be worse. ainsley: that yacht is worth $100 million. back to that guy was on the street with the blunt, his parents, according to this article, they paid $125,000 to get his sister's act scores and s.a.t. scores changed. there was a proctor in the room and changed her answers, gave her a perfect score on the math, 800, 700 on literature.
for the a.c.t. she scored a 23, highest score is 36. they changed her score allegedly to 35. almost a perfect score. steve: apparently the guy who was mastermind behind this, if the kids taken the s.a.t.s, score 1100 or something like that, couldn't go to 1600 there would be red flags. they would talk to the parents, what number would you be comfortable with? they would negotiate. find somebody who could take the test get them pretty much right there. and according to what we read in the indictment -- ainsley: when i was in high school, the people who scored the perfect score, tom of our school. we knew they were straight a students all the way through. if you have a girl that scored 23 on the a.c.t. rumors spread she almost get as perfect score, people will be like, what? steve: hello. brian: jillian, you got a perfect score. anyone suspicious?
jillian: no, everyone expected it. what is missing in all of this, sense of pride, parents and students, accomplishing things on your own. being proud of yourself. let's get to the fox news alert now, starting with the new york city mob boss is gunned down his home. gambino family leader frankie cali shot several times. the gunman sped away in a blue pickup truck and is on the run unclear if it's a mafia hit or rogue gunman. is the highest ranking mobster skilled in new york since 1985. when the murder of paul cast tell lawn know. -- cast tell lawn know. according to npr, andrew weissmann will lead the special counsel's office. earlier judge napolitano explained what that might mean. >> he is either stepping down because his part of the probe, manafort is now over. the other way to look at it is coming to an end. this is all a perfect storm.
manafort's sentencing, gates sentencing, flynn's sentencing, weissmann leaving. jillian: wiseman is reportingly leaving the doj all together. congresswoman i will hand ohio march's daughter is leading a nationwide walkout. thousands of teens are expected to cut class and demand haw makers take action. the minnesota democrat is calling on members of congress to join her daughter's protest. we have sad news to pass along. the man's who last wish a phone call for president trump, you remember we told you about this, he passed away. jay barrett dying overnight days after the president surprised him with well-wishes. >> how are you doing? how is it going, jay? >> it is going, you know what i mean? >> you're a champ. you will fight it, right? >> that is what the irish do, right. >> that is what the irish do, you better believe it. you look good. jillian: barrett suffered from
cystic fibrosis, sister bridge get a connecticut democrat helped grant his wish to speak to the president. ainsley: that is so sad. he said i plan on voting for you. steve: in 2020. ainsley: bless his heart. brian: thank you very much at least the president was able to do it. ainsley: nancy pelosi no compromise on the emergency declaration on the border. kevin mccarthy is here to react to that. steve: sounds like a regular 911 call. >> 911 what is your emergency? >> yes, ma'am, i'm calling because there is someone in front of our house, we just drove home and he is yelling and screaming and flailing his arms. steve: that is what they said. wait until you hear what really happened. it is an unusual emergency, let's say that. ♪ with advil, you'll ask...
nancy pelosi rejecting any compromise, tweeting in an effort to voting in favor of house's resolution to eliminate trump's fake emergency, gop senators are allowing trump to violate constitution just this once. the house will not take up the legislation to give president trump a pass. here to discuss, house minority leader kevin mccarthy. you have four, five, maybe more republicans voting with democrats against the president. your reaction, leader mccarthy? >> very disappointed in those four, you got to understand the president has the authority to do this. just the sheer argument inside the senate republican conference saying they want to change the law proves the president has the authority. think for a moment, is there an emergency? 72,000 people were caught coming across the southern border illegally in february. 11-year high. we know from the drugs that are coming across. we know the challenges of what is happening. he has the authority to do this, if you believe in the rule of law, you would uphold it.
even if they win today, and they send to it the president's desk, he will veto it. i make this promise to you, to the american public, we will uphold that veto in the house. it will go, and president will have the ability to do it. brian: leader mccarthy, isn't he right, you guys left him in a lurch. two years you had power of the house never gave him billions or five billion he needed to get significant things done on the wall? >> let's make sure your viewers know what the truth is. in the house we passed five billion. in the senate it takes 60 votes. this is the real challenge, everybody says you had the house, senate, the presidency, yes, but the way our government works 60 votes -- brian: you had to put the five billion in last minute, it wasn't there originally? >> we passed it in the house, let's give credit where credit is due. the house republicans passed five billion. it was schumer who stopped it, got us into a shutdown. brian: beto o'rourke running for president, made it official.
you worked with him. what is he like on the floor. has he made a big impact? >> he served in the house. i served with him. to be honest i can't remember one speech he gave on the floor or one bill that he passed. it is remarkable that his rise that he is now running for president because, i can't remember something he has done in the house. he just lost a race for the senate. so on the democratic party means you're capable or really the person who should run for president. brian: former speaker of the house paul ryan made a statement couple days ago if the president runs on his personality, he will lose. he has to run on issues. he kind of walked it back, what reaction to the former colleague? >> paul called after that, he tried to walk through what he said he was going through. he was trying to make the point this president has such a very strong record. he is going to win re-election. i believe this president wins on every aspect what he is able to do. and think for one moment, we're at 3.8% unemployment. i think what the president said he would do. get us to 3% growth at the time
president obama said, what does he have a magic wand? he proved he can do it. look how much stronger military is. look what we've done for the va this president will win re-election in every aspect. brian: are you disappointed paul ryan made that statement? >> i ace agree paul ryan making that statement. i appreciate paul clarifying what he said next day. brian: leader mccarthy, you will have a busy day, make everyone vote on green new deal in the house like they did in the senate. kevin mccarthy, thanks so much. >> thank you. brian: in a few hours, actor jussie smollett will face a judge. he won't be alone in the courtroom. we'll preview that. plus, pete hegseth, who i know, going on one within with president mike pence in the woods. the exclusive interview next.

under the national emergencies act, vote down the resolution of disapproval, stand with the president and stand for border security. that is what the american people want. pete: do you see any crisis legitimacy of a wall that has to be built through emergency funding? is this something the democrats will continue to rail against, tear down the wall? >> you have to understand that the funding the president requested throughout the government shutdown, the funding that we're appropriating now, under the law, through the national emergency is all funding that the department of homeland security told us that they needed to construct a physical barrier, a wall, in 10 areas of high density population where the people wearing the green uniforms of customs and border protection told us they need a barrier to do their job and to do it safely. there. pete: there is reporting about an event recently, aei put on, vice president cheney had interview with you, he came after you, made comments how
this administration's foreign policy seems like the obama administration, than the reagan administration, nato, pullout from syria. your response to criticisms from former vice president cheney? >> look i have great respect for vice president cheney. we had a good, vigorous debate over this past weekend. i told him when president trump ran for office he made it cheer that he is no fan of foreign deployments. that he want 9 to bring an end to these endless wars. i know there are some who don't like the fact that the president's called on our nato allies to pay their fair share of our common defense, to live up to their commitments. i know the american people appreciate. pete: many who do like that. >> the president looks at our allies we'll do our part, you do your part. that is what we call being leader of the free world. pete: absolutely. former vice president joe biden may get into the race.
he famously called you a decent guy. he took some heat on it. your take on biden possibly getting into the race? >> they have awfully big field on the other side. the reality you see on the democrat side, largely being driven by the most extreme liberal elements in their party. and the way joe biden caved in to liberal activists after making a kind comment towards me is evidence of the pressure all their candidates are going to face. truth of the matter is, you have a party on the other side that is prepared to run on open borders, socialism, abortion on demand and infanticide, "medicare for all," the green new deal and, i like our chances in 2020. pete: thank you very much, sir. i appreciate your time. >> thanks, pete. ainsley: great job. pete: we'll see how the vote goes today. a full-court press, are you with the president or not? that is what they're saying. brian: walking away from opportunity republicans said we'll give you this, promise not
to do it again, we'll do it in legislation. president not taking them up. pete: you're with me on the wall or you're not. ainsley: thank you, pete. steve: texas congressman, former. brian: beto o'rourke made it official. he is running for president. does newt gingrich like his chances? take a look. he is in the house. brian: you're all for beto, am i right? ♪ ♪ walk this way but in my mind i'm still 35. that's why i take osteo bi-flex to keep me moving the way i was made to. it nourishes and strengthens my joints for the long-term. osteo bi-flex because i'm made to move.

the big drug companies don't see they see us as profits. we're paying the highest prescription drug prices in the world so they can make billions? americans shouldn't have to choose between buying medication and buying food for our families. it's time for someone to look out for us. congress, stop the greed. cut drug prices now. steve: yep, this is a fox news alert. 46-year-old beto o'rourke, last time he ran for anything lost to ted cruz in texas announced this morning he is running for president in 2020. it is 2019. let's bring in newt gingrich, former speaker of the house, host of a brand new podcast
called "newt's world." >> great to be here. steve: what do you think about beto? >> it is a free country, everyone should follow their destiny and his destiny is to keep losing,. brian: "vanity fair," sees like oh, shucks jim any carter attitude. >> does beto carry empty suitcases. his suitcases were always empty. but he felt like a common guy. look i think, i think beto o'rourke is one of the great examples of the left talking itself into hysteria. this guy gets$80 million, runs against cruise cruise and loses. at which point the left goes that was a great race. brian: he got close. it has not been blue in a long time. >> it was exciting. good point. he loses. of the didn't carry his open
state. wouldn't carry his home state against trump. steve: the fact that ted cruz only had 40 million, he had 80, nonetheless. what about his three terms in the house of representatives? we had leader mccarthy talking to brian a little while ago. he didn't remember him ever getting anything done? >> i think that lincoln had only one term in the house and lost a senate race. ended up as an amazing president. maybe that will happen to beto o'rourke but i somehow doubt it. i love the line, i think in the "vanity fair" piece, he said i was born to do this. i thought, there is a certain ego illusion here that the planet had the magic moment and beto o'rourke showed up. ainsley: you have to have a little bit of ego to run for the president of the united states. >> i never heard any candidate, even obama, trump, very strong egos. i never heard them say i was
born to do this. ainsley: what is your reaction to the democratic party? will they vote someone like this or joe biden. >> i'm unequivocal. kamala harris. brian: why? >> african-american woman, largest state in the country. i think she is very effective campaigner. i think she will end up being the nominee. brian: she is getting rid of private insurance. >> i didn't say she would win a general election. brian: you think she will emerge? steve: vote for her? >> in democratic primary there nothing nutty enough to disqualify you. brian: okay. way out to the left, guys. rahm emanuel among democrats concerned about it? >> rahm is the guy who masterminded their 2006 victory in the house. rahm understood, you better be a broad enough party that you can represent a whole country. i don't think some of these people quite get that. steve: newt, let's talk a little bit about your podcast. it is brand knew. it is called, "newt's world."
available wherever you get the podcast or newt's world.com? >> we basically, known each other a long time. i like to learn and i like to teach. podcasts give you a chance to have a real conversation. first one we did was on george washington. we did a great conversation with patrick kennedy talking about his addiction, dealing with being an addict, his family, mental health issues. really a good conversation. this lets me go beyond politics and beyond this morning's stories and look at things that are interesting. brian: they say this is the golden age of audio. podcasts are going through the roof. do you find it rewarding to sit there and talk without time limits? >> well yeah, that is i used to be a college teacher, i thought 50 minutes was reasonable. i'm not saying my students did but i did. one we'll do on sunday is about 5g, the whole new technological
revolution. it lets you talk about anything you want to, to be broad, than just talking about politics or news of the day. steve: welcome to quote newt's world." ainsley: you sold me. let's go to jill ran who has headlines for us. jillian: good morning to you. three people are busted trying to illegally enter the country on a jet-ski. border patrol agents say the trio was trying to cross into new york from canada. they got stuck on ice. had to call for help. they were stranded waiting for rescue crew near niagra falls. all three people are waiting charges. criminal investigation into facebook over company's data sharing policies. according to "the new york times" a grand jury in new york subpoenaed records for at least two smartphone makers. they believe facebook gave its partners access to users information often without their consent. facebook says it is cooperating with the investigation. a woman called 911 when she spot as teenager going crazy in

♪ ainsley: that illegal immigrant with a long, long rap sheet detained by i.c.e. nine times and now he is charged with murder. earlier we spoke to the furious police union leader in that county. >> if you are undocumented and you are committing violent crimes and you're convicted you should go to jail, do your time and then be deported. the laws were not as messed up as they were our victim would be
alive. there needs to be changed immediately and that's what we're asking for. steve: that took place out in california. our next guest says this story is just further proof that sanctuary policies kill innocents. here to explain, nationally syndicated radio show host, dana loesch, host of "the dana show." dana, unfortunately this story sounds way too familiar. >> it does. good morning to you all. this is horrific story. this is a horrible crime, that could have been prevented if only the state of california was as interested in protecting the innocent citizens as it was in protecting those who enter the country illegally, it is not undocumented. it means that you are in the country, you are trespassing in a sovereign entity. you are here illegally if you want to fix it, come in legally. there is the difference. amazingly i don't understand democrats strategy on this because they are further pushing people away, people they want to
persuade to agree with them on these policies. now this particular case, because stories like, there is no excuse for it. nine times the police chief, eddie garcia said nine times i.c.e., that detainer had been applied for by i.c.e. it was ignored by the county. on the 10th time, now after he murders this poor woman, bambi larson, then on the 10th time, finally county officials decide we should work with i.c.e. we have a guy deported repeatedly. he was last convicted, he had a couple other criminal convictions in recent months, in 2016 battery on officer. in 2015, methaphetamine, all kinds of drugs of the his rap sheet is so long, why are sanctuary city advocates making excuses for thugs like these? ainsley: dana, as a woman, imagine what she went through as she was taking her last breath? he stabbed her to death. she had a son. she reported him stalking her
and other people in the neighborhood, according to the police union president we interviewed earlier. you know what he said that is so awful, this guy is illegal, therefore he was let out. if he were legal, he would still behind bars and she would still be alive. that is so messed up. >> yeah it is absolutely messed up. there is no, there isn't a priority over innocent citizens where it concerns innocent citizens versus these criminal, illegal aliens. that is the correct legal term. everyone needs to get familiar, refamiliarize with using it, none of this undocumented nonsense. you're here illegally, that is a misdemeanor but still a crime. he stalked the woman. he knew where the security cameras were. he tried to make sure he was out of view of the security cameras. this is methodical. this guy's rap sheet, dangerous individual, many taken lives of innocent people. innocent people are paying in blood for the sanctuary cities policies that democrats
including all of the 2020 democrat presidential primary contenders are supportings. brian: the thing is, the president went out tried to fulfill a campaign promise. the courts said, to you can't. we're at a standstill. we're talking at each other, victims are paying the price in this case with their lives. thanks, dana. >> breaks your heart. prayers for this woman's family. god bless them. ainsley: she has a son. steve: dana loesch, from "the dana show." thanks for joining from us texas. fox news's own gregg jarrett and wife kate are making spicy chicken tacos. she will reveal her secret coming up. brian: if you want to see jealousy, bill hemmer, jealous we have the jarrett couple on he does not. >> come on guys. ainsley: we have to do it again. >> great clip by johnny carson by the way. wasn't that cool seeing him? ainsley: miss him. >> big morning cameras in the courtroom, jussie smollett makes
