shannon: cautious optimism. appreciate it. another big story. congresswoman ilhan omar defending the right to boycott israel by citing the holocaust was a resolution to recognize boycotts as free-speech, omar rights in part americans have a proud history of participating in boycotts. to advocate for human rights abroad including boycotting nazi germany in response to the dehumanization of the jewish people in the lead up to the holocaust. omar's resolution does not mention israel by name but she later called it an opportunity to support the boycott and sanctions movement against the jewish nation. meanwhile donald trump is sounding off on this controversial chant at his rally about congresswoman ilhan omar. [chanting] >> sent her back, send her back, center back.
>> reporter: the president disavowing the chant at the white house. >> i disagree with it by the way. >> you will tell your supporters -- >> i was not happy with it. i disagree with it. but again i didn't say that, they did. but i disagree with it. heather: the chant fast coming after he talked about several un-american actions from the democratic squad at the rally. mark levin had a fiery response saying it is clear the radical democrats hate the president because he loves america. >> they hate the president because he has two strikes against him. he loves america and he is the greatest president that israel has ever seen. recognizing their capital in jerusalem, moving our embassy to jerusalem, recognizing sovereignty of israel over the
golan heights, kicking the plo out of our country, cutting off funds for terrorists linked to the palestinian authority and it is driving these 3 anti-semites nuts. >> back in march congresswoman omar's controversial comments about israel spark backlash from both parties, the house passed a broad resolution condemning hate including anti-semitism and anti-muslim bias. it did not condemn her comments specifically. sad news to share for you, two fdny heroes who responded to the 9/11 terror attacks have died. richard driscoll and kevin nolan both are coming to illnesses linked to ground 0. driscoll becomes the 200th new york firefighters die. the vietnam veteran recognized for his bravery 5 times over his career, his 32 year career, he was 73. nolan described as wonderful and extremely popular leaves behind a wife and three children, he was just 58.

>> back with a fox news alert iran denying a us warship brought down one of its jones in the strait of hormuz. what does this mean in the political chess match to avoid war as tensions escalate. the task the heritage foundation's james cara final. thanks for joining us. what is your response to this latest news coming out this morning that iran is denying this happened? >> i don't have classified intelligence. we just have to look at what we know. this is common iranian activity for their drones to buzz u.s. navy ships.
we also know the ships will protect themselves. if you remember bishop that was attacked in yemen or the us naval personnel taken hostage by the iranian's. the craft, close to the united states it will defend itself and has the capability to do that. unlikely to be mistaken for something else. >> mistaken for one of our own? that is what they are trying to claim. what we did is use a jamming device. they are saying we shot down one of our own. >> here is the scenario. we shot down our own drone and called the president of the united states and tell and we shot down an iranian drone. that's what a navy officer is going to do. why would the iranian's denied it happened? the simple logical answer is they are not interested in escalating the conflict. you always want to look tough. so you just unite you had one and don't have to hit the guy back.
heather: they are not interested in escalating the situation when they have had so many incidents of the past month where they have, these oil tankers, two in the last couple days. >> the way i look at it is if you look at this activity it is activity of the time. not like we are climbing the escalation latter. we are -- they are doing the same thing which is typical iranian behavior. we want to look tough because we don't want to appear to be a pushover but they are not interested in war with the united states. heather: iran's leader, you say they expect donald trump will be reelected which could prompt them to make a new deal. how would that happen? >> one of the things we're looking at is if iranian's --
they are not going to deal with trump now, they might have secret talks but if trump got reelected and they had to go to the table the iranian's would want something to go to the table with. they don't have a lot of cards to play so by enriching uranium that is something they can negotiate with but by trying to interfere with shipping, that is something to negotiate away. looks like they are stacking cards to have something to play with. heather: you don't think they are telling the truth when they say they are not willing to go back to the table and the sanctions are lifted? >> i believe they would like that but i think the likelihood of the us lifting sanctions before negotiations begin are 0. iran and north korea are two parts of the same debate. when we do something with the north koreans, iranian's look at that, the north koreans brought sanctions lifted. you have to be proportional with both and if we play tough with north korea were going to play tough with them. >> what do we do in terms of the iran deal so we don't end up with the same thing president obama had on the table which
donald trump pulled us out of because they were not following among other things? >> the iranian suffered one potential path forward which they said maybe we can go back to the iran deal with some additional protocols. if there are protocols on ballistic missiles and other activities, some of the 12 things mike pompeo laid out in his requirement for what we would need for a deal maybe we wouldn't have to rewrite a whole new deal. that's a possibility. heather: thank you so much. the time is 19 minutes after the top of the hour and it was 50 years ago the us landed on the moon. it is one of humanity's greatest achievements but according to the new york times it wasn't inclusive enough. carly shimkus has the growing outrage online. ♪ your home's value.
>> mark a rubio slamming democrats for what he calls selective outrage when it comes to donald trump. >> the president says something and people cringe but the other side, left-wing politicians, people in the media go crazy with their outrage, can't even pass a resolution condemning anti-semitism by itself. heather: carly shimkus here with the online reaction and there is a lot. carley: center rubio accusing democrats of feigning outrage and they throw around the word racism too much. there's a lot of reaction coming
in on donald trump's fight with the squad and everybody blaming donald trump or the squad and a lot of people saying let's focus on the issues. let's look at this instagram user who is saying many americans are tired of congress passing condemnation resolution does nothing for citizens. it is not what i believe the majority of the people elected them for which seems to be spending time doing nothing. another instagram user says you are absolutely correct, democrats condemn the president but failed to condemn antifa for their acts of terror. they could be talking about a number of things. senator rubio pointed out when president obama said illegal immigrants can't cross the border nobody said anything, donald trump does -- >> continually talk about that and a bit later in the show, very interesting, stay tuned.
so america's lack of diversity when it came to landing on the moon? what is this about? >> ahead of the 50th anniversary of the apollo moon landing the new york times came out with an interesting piece criticizing the us space program saying the space race was a prime opportunity to signal the commitment to equality after putting the first man in space in 1961 the soviets went on to send the first woman, first asian man and first black man into orbit years before the americans would follow suit. he is the key. under socialism a person of even the humblest origins can make it all the way up. i wonder who that person is going to vote for. >> it is friday, let's talk about something fun. they remake a lot of movies. look at this witness with their remaking. >> you should be at least a 2
star admiral by now yet here you are captain. what is that? >> it is one of life's mysteries, sir. >> top gun maverick. it has been 33 years since the original top gun. a movie that i haven't seen. i have not seen it. i think i'm going to watch it this weekend because everybody is talking about the sql, top gun and tom cruise with the top trending topics on twitter. >> do we know when it is coming out? >> i should know that. let us now. they may not have a release date yet. the time is 26 after the top of the hour, 14 americans dead in the dominican republic and the island nation is taking action. the new plan to ensure safety and the trial of navy seal eddie gallagher captured our nation's
attention. his defense attorney sounding the alarm after winning an acquittal. >> i think the command, in cis, they have to take a hard look at themselves. >> reporter: he joins us up next, he wants to rejoin the navy and he will explain why. don't miss the fox square all morning long, the all-american summer concert series.

the drawing randomized by cnn. the war crimes trial of navy seal eddie gallagher captured our nation's attention. his defense attorney who helped him win acquittal of murdering and isis fighter sounded this alarm after the verdict. >> i think the command in cls, they have to take a look at themselves and how they need to reorganize and redo business in the future. >> they want to rejoin the navy reserve to help restore faith in military justice system and he joins me live to talk about that. thank you for joining us. let us recap what happened in terms of the gallagher case, found not guilty on all charges except one. >> he was found guilty of being in a photograph which is
something we admitted from the beginning, that there was a photo but the big issue is he was charged with attempted murder and all these things they could have avoided if they did a proper investigation, if the prosecutors went through and properly evaluated the case, interview the witnesses and prepared -- there were a lot of surprises that came out that shouldn't have happened. >> how long have you been out first of all? >> since 2013. >> going back in the reserves, how is that going to help change things? do you hope to do? >> it is a very insular community where everybody comes up through the navy just to school and it is all part of the same small group and so somebody coming in from the outside in a reserve capacity to teach and mentor these attorneys, to really show them there is another way of doing things, you don't have to follow the same
simple checklist, simple protocols and checklist. there's other ways to do things that are much better and you have an ethical obligation to do certain things as prosecutor, sending his defense attorney and a lot of these guys come young men and women are very smart people, very talented but they don't have the tools available. >> i know one of the issues discussed in terms of any gallagher's case was a difference in generations so do you think they will listen to you? >> i don't know. it is one of those things where i am making the offer. i saw a lot of things that can change on an institutional level. i would like to get in and help, are they willing to accept the help? the navy leadership? i don't know. if you look at a lot of the things prosecutors have done in this case and afterwards i don't think they are willing to admit they made any mistakes. >> one of your most troubling
statements was that you had fears for law-abiding war fighters. >> absolutely and that is something that has been a long-standing problem about the divide between attorneys in the military and the operating forces. when our men and women deploy they need to have confidence that what they do in combat we will back them up and if they make a mistake we are not going to just have in cis go crazy and try to put them in jail the rest of their lives. this case only deepened the divide by showing these forces if you make a decision in combat that we disagree with or there is a political reason we are going to try to put you in jail for life. >> when will you find out if you're going back to q >> there is no timeframe. >> you just make the offer. >> making the offer. they have an instruction that allows them to bring somebody like me in but they don't actually have a program in place to do it so it would require
somebody at higher levels to say this is a good idea, this is good for the navy. >> sounds like a good idea so hopefully someone is watching or listening and they will do that. great to have you with us and congratulations. the time is 3 minutes until the top of the our. house democrats are celebrity their passage of a $15 minimum wage but at what cost to give the devastating impact this could have on american business owners as the bill moves on in washington was a look at whether across the country, it is going to be hot hot hot. stay with us. need cash? at newday, veteran homeowners can get $54,000 dollars or more to consolidate high rate credit card debt and lower their payments by $600 every month.
the minimum wage to $15 an hour. tracy carrasco from foxbusiness is here with the impact. it sounds like a good idea. >> this is the first time minimum wage workers would get a pay increase in about a decade. the current rate is $7.25, that would go up to $15 an hour and tipped workers would see a dramatic increase from $2 and $13 an hour to now $15 an hour. a report from the nonpartisan congressional budget office did predict approximately 30 million people would see higher earnings as a result of the bill bringing 1 million people out of poverty. however, 1.3 million jobs could be lost because of this. a number of small business owners speaking out saying it could definitely hurt their business but this is unlikely to
become law. he would need to go to the senate which is controlled by republicans. griff: we will see. one business that was having problems, toys "r quote us is planning a come back. >> a small comeback, two toys "r quote us stores will be opening, when in houston, texas, the other in the garden state plaza in new jersey so this small comeback, they are launching 6500 square-foot stores compared to their 30,000 square-foot stores they previously had. you can see definitely a smaller scale, interactive stores but something different they are doing based on the consignment model so toyslawmakers will pay for the space in the store and then whatever sales they get so they are starting with these two stores and opening other stores in asia, europe, india as well and other stores globally, not in the us anymore.
heather: glad they are back. let's talk about this. cell phones posing a dangerous threat to some airplanes. the government raising the alarm itself runs and other electronics could shutdown a critical pilot system leading to loss of control and potential crashes. bloomberg report hundreds of planes are still being flown with that risk. several airlines have started addressing the issue with a november deadline to replace the system. that is concerning. are you trying to slim down for summer? summer is already here. success may depend on where you live. >> because i am unhappy. i am unhappy because i can eat. >> west virginia considered the most obese state in the country. a new report analyzes data from
the cdc to find the highest percentage of adult struggling with obesity and west virginia takes the top spot with 38% of its population in 2017 considered obese followed by mississippi, oklahoma, iowa and alabama. a little bit past the hour. coming up, college students reacting to presidential remarks on immigration. >> we are a nation of laws, document and workers need to be held accountable. >> the policy comes from a place of white american nationalism. >> they only called it racist when they thought it came from donald trump. students have been pressured into believing anything this administration does is evil and he joins us with how he exposed the indoctrination. what's going on up here? can't see what it is yet.
what is that? that's a blazer? that's a chevy blazer? aww, this is dope. this thing is beautiful. i love the lights. oh man, it's got a mean face on it. it looks like a piece of candy. look at the interior. this is nice. this is my sexy mom car. i would feel like a cool dad. it's just really chic. i love this thing. it's gorgeous. i would pull up in this in a heartbeat. i want one of these. that is sharp. the all-new chevy blazer. speaks for itself. i don't know who they got to design this but give them a cookie and a star.
i need your attention for a minute. what are you looking for? is it inspiration? because she's changing the world. every post out there is like "dream big" but when it comes time to take action- girl scouts are making a change. we're the risk takers. athletes. leaders. i'm not saying you can't be part trendsetter, but i am saying you need to be all girl scout. you can go first. audible reintroduced this whole world to me.

>> students at georgetown university reacting to what they think is a quote from donald trump about immigration. >> making the rounds on social media about the deportation of criminal illegal aliens. we are a nation of laws. undocumented workers must be held accountable especially those who may be dangerous. >> i think that policy comes from a place of white american nationalism. >> donald trump has embraced this rhetoric of racism and xena phobia. >> really awful. heather: what they did not know is it was from former president
obama and joining us is campus reform media director cabot phillips. remarkable stuff. >> i never even said this is a presidential quote. i said this is a quote from a president and everyone assumed it was donald trump. i feel that over 100 campuses with the leadership institute campus reform. every day in class the students are pushed with anything trumpeted must be evil and racist and anything obama did musty logical and compassionate and helping people. watch the reactions when i told him this was an obama quote from 2014. >> i will show you the person who said that quote. is that surprising? >> a little bit. >> wise that surprising? >> i thought it was the trump administration. >> didn't expect it to be obama. >> do you think it is a practice of white nationalism to deport criminal illegal aliens? >> the way trump is doing it is. >> obama deported more people. and practice there was more from
obama. >> what is your question? >> it shows the hypocrisy of politics, one person says something 5 years ago and next thing you know it doesn't apply to them anymore. >> reporter: it shows how quickly the left is radicalized on immigration. 5 years ago it was reasonable for a democrat leader to say if you're here illegally and broke other laws it doesn't make sense for you to continue to live in this country and now 5 years later the policy goes for reasonable to resist. the left created an environment where your pro-illegal immigration or you are anti-immigrant. that is not what our country is about. >> they won't believe when they see the images, several people, the pictures that have been released originally attributed to donald trump, the children and the enclosures and they were actually president obama. >> reporter: it is a double
standard and i think it is disappearing -- doing a disservice to the next generation not telling them what is going on and any time something happens people think this is the first time this ever happened, donald trump doing things that have never been this bad. it is not a fair shake down of history and there is room for moderation. the starting point, to allow them to break the wall and not do anything about it. that sounds reasonable. maybe i'm not getting a fair shake down. heather: we need to make changes to fix it for years and years and years. it falls on republicans and democrats not getting it done. donald trump is trying to do something. >> we are looking at the world social pressure plays in this,
the second anyone has conversations about what we are going to do when it comes to deportation, and the immediate rhetoric being lobbed at you by democrats. and that is not the case. and broken extra laws and social pressure, hundreds of interviews, and look around. they don't want to face pressure from our peers or seem they are doing anything. heather: we are not talking illegal immigrants, illegal immigrants. 8 minutes, until the top of the hour and the conservative commentator was stripped of her
