thanks for joining us this morning. rob: the president is at -- ♪ ♪ ainsley: straight to a fox news alert. the country reigl country reelig following two horrific shootings in el paso and dayton, ohio. >> release brand new surveillance video showing the moments the gunman opened fire on packed street in dayton. we want to warn you. this is disturbing. [gunshots] steve: unbelievable. officers seen racing toward the gunfire before confronting the shooter within 30 seconds he was dead. no doubt saving lives 6 hundreds. one of the victims, meghan
betts was the gunman's own sister. they arrived to the area together before he went back to the car and came back with a gun. ainsley: in el paso police are turning to domestic terrorism and investigation there of deadly massacre. jonathan serrie is live on the ground in texas for us, good morning. >> good morning to you. the alleged gunman is being held without bond being charged with capital murder in connection with the deaths of 20 people in a walmart in the shopping center you see behind me. meanwhile, federal authorities are investigating whether the defendant authored an anti immigrant online post as they consider domestic terrorism and hate crime charges. and the fbi is interviewing acquaintances of the defendant in the dallas area. here's why. >> interviews we're putting the investigation together to be able to determine if he was -- was part of a group or working with other individuals that were planning any future attacks. at this point we don't have any credible intelligence
saying that there is anything going on in the future. >> a video posted on facebook shows the inside of the walmart when saturday's gunfire broke out. you can see someone hiding under a shelf as you hear the shots being hired. a mother and father shopping for school supplies lost their lives while shielding their baby from the gunfire. >> i think they were all three together and i think the father tried to shield her and then she shielded him. there is no way he would have let him happen anything to that child. >> over the weekend el paso county share wind chill index wiles posted on his personal facebook page this anglo man came here to kill hispanics. i'm outraged and you should be too. this entire nation should be outraged in this day and wage all the issues we face, we are still confronted with the people who will kill another for of the sole reason of the color of their skin. last night democratic presidential candidate beto o'rourke who used to represent el paso in congress joined hundreds of
residents for a moment of silence and vigil. >> we bore the salute worst of it in a communities for the last 10 years which has averaged 18 murders a year for the entire year. we saw 20 people gunned down in one day. >> later this morning, president trump is expected to speak from the white house on recent mass shootings across the country. that event expected to take place at 10:00 eastern time. back to you. steve: all right. hey, jonathan, i have got a question for you. so the shooting was there in el paso. the area that the shooter is from the dallas area, 10 hours away, it's still unclear why he made that trip, right? >> >> still unclear. authorities are investigating that. and that is part of the hate crime investigation. if federal authorities determine that he was motivated by race. perhaps animosity towards
hispanics, then that might explain some motive. at this point it is shear speculation. it is being investigated. authorities are eventually determine, federal authorities will eventually determine whether they are prosecuted as a hate crime. but, right now, that aspect is still under investigation. steve: and the suspect is speaking with the police, right? >> he is. he has been cooperating from the get-go. highly unusual. in many cases with these shootings, the gunman will either kill themself or die in gunfire while exchanging gunfire with the police. he actually gave himself up to authorities and has been cooperating with them throughout this investigation. a highly unusual case. ainsley: all right. thank you so much jonathan. in dayton, ohio, that suspect was shot within 30 seconds. the police were there. they did kill him. down in el paso that guy is in custody talking with police. he apparently lived with his grandparents in allen,
texas. grandparents said yes, his license has our address on it but he moved out about six weeks ago. he was attending college when he lived with us. he stayed with us a few times since then. the authorities, the fbi did go into three different houses including the grand parents' houses to get evidence. pete: when you look at the videotape from dayton, ohio. the one we showed is powerful and another vantage point which we will show as well. everyone is running away and three officers round the corner here it is right here. they round the corner and fire back at the gunman, i mean, what it takes in that moment, you are facing a high powered rifle with a lot of ammunition, people running away from you and within 30 seconds, i mean that's a response time that's almost unheard of. obviously they were in the neighborhood. six officers ingandle with the shooter within 20 seconds and he was down 30 seconds after the first shots were fired. >> you hear these shots and know what's happening as though shots were ringing out. there was one video i watched of a young man
underneath the table in a walmart in el paso. the shots you could hear them ringing out. jonathan talking about that mom that was shot shielding her baby boy two years old. 25 years old. she and her husband shopping for school supplies. three kids holding her two-year-old. apparently she was shot and fell to the ground and landed on top of the child. the child had some broken bones but will be okay. unfortunately these kids will be raised without their mom and dad. steve: the president is going to make an address to the nation four hours from right now from the oval office or the white house, i should say. yesterday, when he was getting on air force one at morristown, new jersey, in route back from bedminster, new jersey, to the white house he did suggest that he has something he wants to talk about. there are a lot of things that are in the works. watch this. >> hate has no place in our country. and we're going to take care of it. just on behalf of my first lady and myself condolences
to all. weave to get it stopped. this has been going on for years, for years and years in our country. we have to get it stopped. but this is also a mental illness problem. if you look at both of these cases, this is mental illness. these are really people that are very, very seriously mentally ill. ainsley: the president went on to thank law enforcement. he said he spoke at length to the ag, william barr. he spoke at length to governors and fbi director christopher wray. he also said all of the flags will be flown at half-staff at government buildings today. pete: talk about the signs of mental illness. part of what he learned the shooter who opened fire outside that bar in dayton was known inside the school where he went for creating or having crafted a hit list against girls in his school. and some of the people he went to school with have reported there were fears that our school might be the kind of place he shoots up. so, when you look at these incidents, as completely tragic, you can also look back and it's always 2020 in
hindsight. what did people know and when could they have said something? in this case it appears he had shown the signs of mental illness quite early. steve: exactly right. that suggestion where we just saw the president and he talked about mental health, you've got to figure that he is going to address that later today from the white house. you know, once again, it's like there were these warning signs that something was just wrong with that guy. the guy from ohio, who wrote out the hit list and then also had a rape list as well. ainsley: of the girls. steve: suspended from high school. ainsley: wrote it on the bathroom wall and the school had to go in lock door. interviewed the principal all he will say is i will not deny that that didn't happen. one of the kids he went to school with said he glorified violence. he was unpleasant person. he was not bull idea. he said don't listen to those remarks. he was not bull idea. the kid also wrote on this suspect in dayton he wrote on his twitter feed i'm
going to hell and i'm not coming back. and he praised satan. pete: you add those impulses with video games as we had the lieutenant governor of texas "fox & friends" yesterday first shooter games desensitize folks to the violence. having been there in violent scenarios when you understand the carnage and cost of human lives. when you see it through a screen and you don't relate to it in person, it makes it seem like it's more accessible. that, plus any number of factors. ainsley: it could be the video games. maybe not -- i believe you grow up parenting, you grow up and go to church on sundays. that teams to you have fear of god and to have good morals there are so many different factors you don't know. maybe a child is born with mental illness. steve: it does come back to that a lot. there is a -- we are going to play a sound bite for you from a sheriff down in hillsborough county, florida, who over the weekend, they got a phone
call from somebody that said hey, i have been watching these shootings and i'm intrigued by them and i think i'm going to come and shoot up the store. here's the sheriff. >> he was intrigued over the shootings. over the past couple of days. after the events over the last week, we all fear for our safety to begin with. so, to have an individual who, for whatever reason wants to be a copycat or wants to instill fear in people, for whatever that motive may be, is disturbing. there is going to be a zero tolerance in hillsborough county for anyone who seeks to instill fear in our residents. steve: so he called the walmart, this person. ainsley: 10 miles south of tampa. steve: yeah i'm going to come over and shoot. ainsley: thankfully whoever answered the phone call called police they were ready for him. apparently his mother worked at that walmart. pete: another responsibility we have the in media. you cover these because they
are news worthy we don't put the name or face of shooters on the screen. they don't deserve the publicity they seek but part of what per pets united per petd states it. they want to be seen as infamous that's the balance we face report on it without glorifying it. ainsley: guy is 21, one in florida 21 years old. steve: try to figure out the motives and the people who did it and extenuating circumstances it was political. here are some people who would like to be president. watch this. >> when you talk about invasions and hoards of people and when you talk about mexican as criminals and rapists and the country under siege, you have unstable people who are going to see that as a sign that they have got to take up arms and do the horrific things. >> trump has a lot to do with what happens in el paso. >> the environment that we have created in the united
states as the president has created in the united states. >> this echos the kind kind of language that our president encourages. >> there is no question that white nationalism is condoned at the highest level of our government. >> donald trump is responsible for this. >> the chief of staff mick mulvaney was on one of the chat shows yesterday and he said to suggest that el paso shooter was motivated by the president was not right. he said that the el paso shooter posted online he had been expressing his hate-filled views long before donald trump was president of the united states. pete: he also went on to say and i agree many others have said it that's like blaming bernie sanders for the shooting at the congressional baseball game because this was a bernie sanders supporter with a hit list of republicans. to do this is, i think, irresponsible it. is political.
and unnecessary. ainsley: there were mass shootings in the last administration, too. you can't blame the president for mass shootings. these individuals are crazy. in order to take someone's life, you have to be out of your mind, especially that many people. these are human beings, and they are walking into stores and just shooting them down. steve: no doubt there will be calls for more laws. the cover on the "new york post" today says ban weapons of war. ainsley: do you know what also hits home? this is walmart. we all go to walmart and shop for school supplies for our kids. steve: 100 percent. pete eats that's why it's so impactful. steve: trey gowdy who retired not long ago had this reaction from the fallout of what happened over the weekend. >> the right-to-life is the most fundamental, basic, primary right that we have. it is the right from which all other rights emanate it. doesn't matter if you are a right to a lawyer if you are did. it doesn't matter if you are the right to free speech if you are dead. doesn't matter if you have the right to keep and bear
arms if you are dead. on a personal level, i'm willing to subrogate any of my other rights to avoid another sandy hook, another pulse nightclub, another day like we had yesterday. but i'm out of politics and i'm not going back. the legislators need to look at the laws we have on the books, are they being enforced, if the answer is yes and we still have gaps in our laws that need to be fixed, keep in mind, you don't have a single right for which there is not some corresponding responsibility or restriction. every right you have has a restriction. if we need more restrictions, then draw the causal scientific link between what you are proposing and what you hope to be the outcome. but just more laws that are not going to be enforceside a panacea and is not going to work. show me a law to prevent the next sandy hook and sign me up as a husband and father. show me the law and sign me up and i will give up any other right i have. pete: passionate plea. some sides to this story.
some people want to ban guns. some people want to point out the walmart in texas where this happened gun free zones. guns were banned. this is texas. we would expect somebody to be immediately shooting back not in a place where you are told you can't have a personal firearm. not as simple as saying ban weapons of war. some people would say hey, i as an individual should have a trite defend myself, myself included. i don't know where we go from here because people are pretty invested in views of the world. ainsley: let you knows what you think email@example.com. meanwhile hand it over to jillian for headlines. jillian: overnight south korea joints military drills. exercise underway despite several warnings from north korea. rogue regime tested a series of short range missiles over the last few weeks. the grand daughter of robert f. kennedy will be laid to rest today. a private service for saoirce kennedy hill will be held at a church near a compound in massachusetts.
that's where the 22-year-old was found dead from an apparent overdose. hill was the niece of fox news correspondent doug kennedy. mitch mcconnell is recovering this morning after fracturing a shoulder at a fall in his kentucky home. 77-year-old senate majority leader has already been treated and released from the hospital. the senate is in recess but democrats are call on mcconnell to bring lawmakers back. they want an emergency session on gun control. a look at your headlines. i will send it back to you. steve: thank you very much, jillian. meanwhile 2020 democrats going after president trump on the issue of healthcare. >> working right now to take away america's healthcare. >> the truth is the republicans and trump, their whole goal is to take away your healthcare. ainsley: but the president has a plan, a preview coming up next. ♪ ♪ liberty mutual customizes your car insurance,

enforcement panel blue lives matter new york city founder new york city police department joseph along with former secret service agent evey pomporus and steve cardigan. good to have all of you as well. that's really something when you look at the video from dayton and apparently evey, apparently six officers engaged the suspect within 20 seconds. he was down third seconds after the first shots were fired. >> that's rare. most of the situations we don't see this type of reaction. officers happen to be in the area and happened to be able to respond. so we were fortunate in this situation. but in most situations they flee. they commit suicide. and so they will get into an altercation with police. by the time police get there it's over it. really shows how police are responding, with bravery and heroism that goes behind it and then also just how we are getting more toxically
sound and seeing so many more of these. police are having to adjust and go into these situations and respond it's a really difficult time to be in law enforcement right now. steve: no kidding. joe, the bravery of those officers, they were able to stop him before he went into a bar called ned peppers. which had 100 people in it, at least. had he been able to get in that room with those people, it would have been a lot worse. >> there would have been so many more casualties. we have to commend these officers for going out there and doing what they did. i think it's pretty pathetic how the democratic candidates come out and try to catch him in such a tragedy. as law enforcement we need to go back to the basics. more presence and visibility. officers on foot patrol. the problem is individuals feel they can go nationwide, carry a firearm and not get stopped. they are not worried about getting to their destination their goal is to cause casualties.
we need to go back to the basics and get more officers out on the street and people fearful they will be stopped and not get to the end destination. steve: there will be more calls for gun control. from your point of view, what do you see? >> the laws that are on the books are not being enforced as they should. we don't need more laws as trey gowdy said. what's going to happen is, you know, these shooters are going after the low hanging fruit. so they are going after soft targets. and if they even had a background check on either one of these individuals, it wouldn't have stopped, they would have been able to acquire the guns that they did. steve: evy, we see that reportedly the he will pass so shooter from the dallas area looked like he left a hate-filled manifesto online on one of those web sites and in fact one of the founders of the website said just close down the website, that's ridiculous.
>> shooter also typically communicate in some way a threat or people would have been informed by shooters. i think -- look, at the end of the day, we are all responsible as a community. we all have to be aware of the people around us, not just in our communities but in our homes. steve: sure. joe? i will give you 15 seconds to summarize if we can get our heads around what we have seen. >> this is a very big mental illness problem. officers are expected to have so many hats. but we need more help from our mental health physicians to work with police to get these individuals off the street and the help they need. steve: steve? >> same thing mental health issues being eg ignored. in my 30 years i could pick the people who were going to commit suicide and commit murder it's predictable. we look at the patterns of behavior. steve: now they are trying to figure out what signs

your healthcare. >> the person that's enjoying this debate most right now is donald trump and we pit democrats against each other while he is working right now to take away americans' healthcare. >> let's be clear about this. we are the democrats. we are not about trying to take away healthcare from anyone. that's what the republicans are trying to do. >> the president is going to take away your healthcare. the new reports say that the trump administration is considering a healthcare rollout next month to counter progressive democrats. so what would a trump healthcare plan look like? here to weigh in is healthcare expert and co-founder of g.d.p. advisors seth benson. seth, thank you for being here this morning. so i share the view, i think, of a lot of our viewers that healthcare is complicated. it's easy to say medicare for all. it's more difficult to explain how the free market police officers more options. >> what the president understands and alex azar
understands this is a matter of economics. in the united states a sixth of the u.s. economy is healthcare. and that we don't have a health insurance problem in the united states. we have a cost problem. that if you want to drive down costs and which will in turn drive down health insurance premiums, you have to put the consumer back in control of the free market system. giving them transparent platform, helping them to pick the plan they want and help them understand what it is that they're buying. pete: to your point here are key attributes of what the president's plan could look like price transparency, expanding coverage, insurance competition, protections for pre-existing conditions. so, when you look at things like competition, that's the idea that you can buy across state lines. transparency a cost issue, right? i don't know how much it costs for the most part when i go to my doctor or provider. if i did, maybe i could make a more informed choice which would drive down prices. how much can president trump affect the transparency of the system? >> well, if we think about
every other aspect of our economy, as a consumer, i have the information before i make an informed decision. in healthcare, the absolute on sit plays into it. there is no understanding of what things will cost until long after i have had these services rendered which prevents me from doing anything but just blindly trusting people and n. white lab coats. pete: absolutely. what's the best way for president trump and supporters of him to explain his healthcare approach vis-a-vis government run medicare for all? >> yeah, again, recognize that medicare for all, it's not medicare at all. that is marketing overmechanics. so, what the president needs to do is make it very clear that he is going to put power back in the hands of the consumer, open up transparency, allow them to make the choices they want to make. we all remember if you want to keep your doctor can you keep your doctor debacle that actually could happen under a president trump plan. as long as the consumer has the power. and we bring this economic system into a clearer aspect so the consumer can do what
it needs to do. pete: seth denison thank you for your time morning. clearly healthcare will be front and center in 2020. thanks. still to come, nypd officer dan bongino is here. plus, this guy may be a notorious gang leader. but he is no master of disguise. the prison escape that just went really not so right. you might say wrong ♪ on the street ♪ the heat is ♪ on ♪ t turn. -[ scoffs ] if you say so. ♪ -i'm sorry? -what teach here isn't telling you is that snapshot rewards safe drivers with discounts on car insurance. -what? ♪ -or maybe he didn't know. ♪ [ chuckles ] i'm done with this class. -you're not even enrolled in this class. -i know. i'm supposed to be in ceramics. do you know -- -room 303. -oh. thank you. -yeah. -good luck, everybody.

let's bring in author of spy gate the attempted sabotage of donald j. trump. i don't know if you watched the sunday shows a lot of democrats are blaming the administration for what happened in texas and ohio. what's your reaction to that. >> it's one of the most disturbing grotesque trends in politics lately. just literally hours, if not minutes after an incident people jump on their twitter accounts, politicians looking for vote support, donations, whatever they're looking for. instead of having some sense of empathy with the victims of this really unthinkable tragedy, your first -- your first instinct is to tweet about whose fault it is. other than the actual person who did this. think about this, right? i was actually in a walmart this weekend, ran into a whole bunch of people, was talking to them on the way out i'm thinking to myself what would you do right now if some maniac walked in here with a firearm and started to killing innocent people?
and you start to really, as a police officer, and a former secret service agent put yourself in that spot. and i can tell you right now my first instinct afterward would not be to tweet about it to try to get election votes. one more thing on this, guys. i don't do this so i don't speak with fork tongue here. i have a show. i'm on this network as well. we have had incidents where language, alexandria ocasio-cortez used was used by antifa terrorist engaged in an attack. we, of course, had the dreadful incident in the baseball field in virginia. we had another shooting this weekend where one of the shooters had some apparently had some support for another democrat presidential candidate. it's not their fault. hundreds of millions of people literally a year across the world listen to political speech. and do you know what they do? they go out and vote or argue with their friends about politics. they don't become savage maniacs and shoot up a walmart. clearly, guys, there is something else going on. there is something else
wrong here. pete: dan, in this case it's universal to your point. it's not as if one or two of the candidates are pointing the finger at president trump. all of them are immediately saying it's your fault. how do you overcome that and get at whatever solution would actually exist? >> you know, pete, it requires an educated electorate to realize and see through the fog of what's going on. these are not serious people looking to solve -- here's the issue here, guys. the issue here is when you do that, and you suck up air time, dedicated to attacking president trump, who clearly, by any sane, rationale actor, had absolutely nothing to do with this at all. if you are sane, and reasonable, you take away a conversation about what the real problem is. we clearly -- there is something going on in our culture. the number of guns is up dramatically, gun crime and gun crime per capita is
actually down dramatically. people have had guns in the united states for hundreds of years, since our founding. what is going on in the culture. instead you are worried about getting extra votes in the iowa caucus coming up? this is sick stuff and disturbing. steve: speaking of disturbing. so you were at a walmart down there in florida, simultaneously across the state, about 10 miles from tampa, they got a call at another walmart where a guy said i'm on my way over, i'm armed, i'm intrigued by these shootings over the weekend. cops acted quickly, were able to bust him, unclear if he had a weapon. felony charges for false report of using a firearm in a via limit manner. this is some crazy stuff. >> yeah, when we were doing threat assessments in my prior work secret service notably protecting the president and vice president and others. this copycat phenomenon is a
very real thing. we are in a real conundrum, steve. it's news. tough cover it on these they networks. it's devastating news but news people have to hear the details about. we can't be ignorant and pretend it's not a legitimate problem that other people with severe psychological disturbances and problems beyond our capacity to explain in simple news appearance also find some sick inspiration in this. the copycat is very real. give you a quick example. when we would go out in this one particular interview that i conducted with a guy who was making some threats at one of our protects had a whole bunch of new files and news clippings both on our news file and hard copy something like that. whether he was taking tactical clues they do use it for some type of inspiration sometimes not all the time. pete: briefly, dan, you said it's a problem in our culture. what is the problem? >> i was thinking about this all weekend. all i have is questions.
i went to graduate school for psychology but it didn't make me an expert that i have all the answers. is it social media over social interaction? is it this disconnect? is it the breakdown of our family? is it something to do with entertainment choices? i think all of these things should be looked at. i think it's only fair. what are why doing instead? oh, bernie did it, elizabeth did it, trump did it. do you know who did it, pete, the maniac who walked into a warmt walmart snuffed out the lives of people shopping on a weekend whose families will never see them again. can we as a country please, god, and i'm not using his name in vain. i put my hands together can we please just el empathize with the victims and families for a while and find out what happened before we try to score a few extra votes in the iowa caucus? please, these were innocent people. this was totally, completely inappropriate. pete: thank you, dan. ainsley: jillian has more headlines for us.
jillian? jillian: we are following a number of other stories. we start with a story out of florida right now. a popular beach sees three shark attacks within two days. the latest victim standing in knee deep water when he was bitten on his foot in new smyrna beach, florida. two other people bitten minutes apart in the same area on saturday. new smyrna beach is known as the shark bite capital of the world. congressional candidate is criticized for her looks. a political activist claims sara hart weir was only recruited by the kansas g.o.p. because she is a, quote, attractive young woman. weir is slamming those claims. >> leadership matchup not a beauty pageant. it is just about me jumping in this race and how can i lead differently and better for this district and actually roll up my sleeves and get things done. >> weir is a disability advocate who works to help people with down syndrome. she joins "fox & friends" live at 8:15 eastern.

pete: welcome back. it's your shot of the morning. this weekend i teamed one over 30 navy seals in a swim across the hudson river all in an effort to show no veteran is left behind. watch. >> there we go have you got navy seals getting ready for their swim across the hudson river. >> this whole thing is about honoring our fellow navy seals and raising money to help veterans. >> that's pete. >> look for the white cap that is pete in the middle there. go pete. >> much respect to navy seals. that's all i have to say. holy cow. pete: do i have it in me to finish the last two legs based on what you saw firsthand. >> my good army friend there is a reason we are the premier a maritime force in the world. >> let's do it. >> oh my goodness. carley: what's it feeling like after leg 2?

[laughter] steve: that's awesome. pete: it was amazing. these navy seals, they are super human. one of the guys in that photo also, who is in there name is caj my swimming buddy. there was a point in that swim i couldn't go any further i was caught in the current. he said grab on my shorts. >> i grabbed the pack of his shorts and he swam like superman was pulling me through the water. ainsley: you are a veteran.
pete: i swam. i was a lifeguard. i swam in lakes and pools current is another thing. steve: this isn't a little river it's a hudson river. pete: at one point a huge log floated past us. ainsley: you told me at the beginning of the show there was one point where you stayed in one spot for how long? pete: twlong?pete 20 minutes. i couldn't fight the current. i needed a little assistance. i needed a tow in a couple spots. ultimately pushed through all these legs. these guys did pushup and pull-ups in between gi-go. i'm in awe of these men and what they do. ainsley: when they were here last friday i said are you going to wear wet suit and goggles because you will get dirty he said no because you get so hot. pete: i tried to have ear phones in audio from the river shirt on. after that first leg i said take it all off now. it felt constricting especially when you are not
going anywhere. thankfully the current was better for us in the last two legs. ainsley: we were saying to steve before the show, i was like, you know, i was on the swim team, i bet i could do some breast stroke across the hudson you are like no. pete: i thought the same thing a little bit. it was going to be a challenge for me. i feel if i ever did it again i will train next time a better idea. steve: as you watch the navy seals, you can tell hot navy seals are how would you describe whatever swim stroke that is you are using? pete: doggy paddle slash survival stroke? you improvise. steve: sure. you must have at some point been kind of freaking out. the current is so strong. i have not moved in 20 minutes. pete: yes. steve: i'm going to have a heart attack. pete: i have never been so exasperated in the water. if you are running can you stop when you are swimming you can't. when i did stop you float

thought you know what? i want to be a navy seal or i want to be in the service like pete and those guys? pete: if you want to be if a seal jump in the pool or the lake. steve: rob o'neill the navy seal who killed bin laden said when he joined the navy seals he could not swim. >> i had marcus luttrell the biggest dropout for seals is the water. 90% drop out because of the water. ainsley: look at these bodies. makes me feel great knowing we have the strongest men out there defending our country. these guys are jacked. pete: seals are the best. thank you gi-go fund for having me. maybe we will see you next year. steve: by the way as we look at that image, i count. ainsley: tattoos? steve: more tattoos than i have ever seen on you before. pete: most of them are covered. >> >> what is the thing episcopal. pete: jerusalem cross. i love it first saw it in jerusalem. ainsley: thanks, pete.

legislation. senator saying it could be done very quickly. >> we could do it that fast and we would do a resounding vote and the president of the united states, perhaps, would feel compelled to sign the bill. >> in at least one republican senator tim scott is on board as well. >> i believe tonight, i will go tomorrow. it doesn't matter to me. this is such an important issue and an issue that we sometimes only get part shall because of the mass shootings. griff: no indication mcconnell plans to call anyone back at this point but the president who will speak at the white house in about three hours is tweeting this just moments ago. he says we cannot let those killed in el paso, texas and dayton, ohio, die in vein. likewise for those seriously wounded we can never forget them and those many who came before them. republicans and democrats must come together and get strong, background checks perhaps marrying this
legislation with desperately needed immigration reform. we must have something good if not great come out of these two tragic convenience. i remind you under article 2 of section 36 the constitution the president can call congress either house or both back into session. we don't know what is he going to say, but we will find out. it hasn't been since president harry truman that a chief executive took such a measure calling congress back. steve: that's right, indeed. but griff jenkins, some news about mitch mcconnell over the weekend apparently he fell down and busted up his shoulder, right? >> he did. he fractured his shoulder. the office putting out a statement but his office also not putting out a statement that precludes him from taking any action and calling the senate back. perhaps we will hear from him later today as well. ainsley: he says he will be working from home. steve: in kentucky. pete: thanks, griff, appreciate it. steve: you've got the background where it turns out that a total of 29 people were killed in 13 hours. two ma mass shootings.
they still don't know the motivation behind either of them. still trying to find oath out why the guy in texas drove 10 hours from the dallas area to el paso. as you look at the new video out of dayton, it is so extraordinary that apparently six police officers engage with the shooter within the first 20 seconds he was down and dead 20 seconds after the first shot. ainsley: he was going downtown bar and restaurant area had his sister and companion in the car. and he actually shot his sister. apparently they separated at one point. then he came back. he was wearing body armor, a mask and bullet proof vest and was going down some alley and then started firing the shots and one of them went dead was his sister. pete: now learning this morning that same shooter ultimately was suspended from school from having a hit list in high school and
a rape list. this was someone on the radar at least of folks in his high school which leads to when the president tweets about background checks or what can be done here, mental illness is a problem and understanding who has access to guns and why and whether is maybe an opportunity to get at this. obviously blaming of this president and rhetoric at this time is time for cooler heads. ainsley: not time to play the blame game, the person response sin is the person to blame. some of his classmates has been commenting on it. one said he glorified violence and unpleasant person. he was not bull idea he said. if you look on the guy's twitter feed he says i'm going to hell and not coming back and he praises satan. steve: well, there are a lot of red flag apparently and that's what, unfortunately we are too used to looking at through the rear view mirror. pete: that's right. steve: it will be interesting to hear what the president has to say three hours from now.
we convened a panel of law enforcement professionals a little while ago, and they meancommented on the actions of the dayton police as the guy was shooting at everybody they ran toward him. listen to this. >> we are seeing so many of these. police are having to adjust and go in to these situations and respond but it really shows how police are responding with bravery and heroism that goes behind it. >> tough commend these officers for going out there and doing what they did. i think it's pretty pathetic how the democratic candidates come out and try cash in on such a tragedy. as the law enforcement we need to go back to the basics. we need more presence and visibility. we needs officers on foot patrol. the laws on the books are not being enforced as they should. we don't need more laws. if the shooters are going after the low hanging fruit they are going after soft targets. if they even had a background check on either one of these individuals it wouldn't have stopped. they would have been able to
acquire the guns that they did. pete: those are really important points. we get into the moments of emotion and hyperbole and blaming. what we need to do is looking at what happened. only person to blame is the shooter. what did the family know? what did they know about his background and why it was not caught. in dayton, thank god, there were cops on foot patrol there at 1:00 p.m. i 1 a.m. in e morning. el paso soft target that mall and walmart are reported to be gun-free zones did the shooter know or not know that. that's why a lot of the people myself when we were covering this over the weekend were wondering this is texas. why are not a bunch of folks not shooting back right away. walmart a gun-free zone. the shooter might know that and try to take advantage of that you have to understand every variable in this situation. you held up the cover of the "new york post" last hour. they are saying ban weapons of war. just ban in my opinion all guns. i own a rifle just like this
ar-15 legally. i own ak 47 legally. i have gone through the process to do so and i understand how to use it. just taking them away from people doesn't make the situation better then lawful gun owners don't have their own resource. steve: you know, pete, better than anybody, after things like this people want things fixed there are no easy ways to do it otherwise we would have. we played a sound bite a half an hour ago of trey gowdy we have got to look and see if all the rules were followed. plenty of laws on the books already. but were they followed? ainsley: if you are bad enough to be able to walk in a walmart to blast people and take people's lives, you are bad enough to go and steal a gun. the argument is if you take away the guns from the people who want to do good, they are not going to be able to defend themselves, because these go bad guys are going to get their hands on guns anyway. pete: absolutely. you have a limited amount of resources. background checks happen to be fast and quick based on data. there are fixes the
president may address today about information sharing between the state and federal government so background checks are conclusive. it's hard though. pete: it's really hard. ainsley: this guy caused a lockdown in high school because he wrote on the wall who he wanted to kill and rapist list allegedly. and they a lock down in his high school that was in high school, 15, 16, 17, 18. now he is 24 and does this. even though there were red flags how do you stop a guy. pete: you live in a world where you want to forgive people who are juveniles for that. ainsley: law enforcement just watch him for like ever? pete: it's true it's not easy. ainsley: it's hard. steve: or deal with them at that age and apparently that was not tended to. ainsley: true. steve: dan bongino has been surveying what has been said since these two horrific shootings, and he sees politics at play. he doesn't like it. >> the issue here is when do you that, and you suck up air time dedicated to attacking president trump, who clearly, by any sane, rationale actor, had
absolutely nothing to do with this at all. if you are sane and reasonable, you take away conversation about what the real problem is. we clearly -- there is something going on in our culture. the number of guns is up dramatically. gun crime and gun crime per capita is actually down dramatically. people have had guns in the united states for hundreds of years since our founding. what is going on in the culture. and instead you are worried about getting some extra votes in the iowa caucus coming up? i mean this is sick stuff. this is really disturbing. pete: i appreciated what dan had to say because it was honest. i thought about it all night and i don't have a clear answer. easy to jump up and down and take away fifth amendment right. when you think about video games and culture. ainsley: social media. pete: ripping got god and purpose out of people's lives. social media. some things in background incomplete. cooler heads should prevail and think about and think
about prudent measures that attack the problem not make politicians feel better about themselves. steve: the tweet that griff just told us about where he does mention background checks and yesterday before he got on air force one he said we have to get -- stop this. it's been going on for years and years, a lot of things are in the works. don't be surprised if the person actually has some suggestions on how to fix the problem. ainsley: president did say flags at half-staff, government buildings. we have ours at half-staff on sixth avenue. see images of moms being held by their husbands and crying. the vigil, mom holding roses and candles. so sad. pete: by the way prayers still important at this moment. the whole things of crossing out thoughts and prayers. people are what people need. god hears them. then we can take action as well. ainsley: in our church yesterday we always pray for our president and we pray for the mayor. we pray for all of our local government officials. we prayed for these families yesterday.

>> i think the democrats are in an awkward position. how do you campaign against prosperity. prosperity delivered to the economy by president trump. how do you campaign against that? very difficult thing to do. what they stress is healthcare and maybe climate change because they don't have a growth plan. they don't have a prosperity plan. they got what they think is a fairness plan. not going to grow the cake, the pie, the economy. this is just going to reslice it. pete: aren't they going to say the big guy has benefit sod we want a new federal minimum wage. >> of course they will say that and say tax the rich. the problem is you do all of that you raise that minimum wage, you tax the rich and tax this and tax that, the economy actually shrinks. so nobody is better off. steve: right. >> that's the way it's going to go. steve: stuart, we also heard some of the democrats talking out on the stump and whatnot about how okay, the economy is pretty good but it got started on barack obama's watch. >> well that's nonsense. i'm sorry.
last six months of the obama administration our growth rate was 1 to 1.7% for the economy. the first two years of president trump's administration you jacked that up to 3% growth. it started with trump and the tax cuts and deregulation. ainsley: look at interest rates? are we going to see them continue to go down. >> i should bring your attention to what he was happening today. we now have a full blown currency war between china and the united states. overnight china deliberately lowered the value of their currency that has ha profound impact. money is pouring into the united states lowering our interest rates. you are going to get, i think a 30 year fixed rate mortgage within a couple of weeks of 3.5%. that's scweptionly low level. >> we knew this was going to happen because the president slapped another 10% tariff on $300 billion worth of chinese stuff. this is essentially quid pro-cash. >> look, we didn't know
until overnight what the chinese were going to do in response to this latest tariff threat. now we know. they have dropped -- it's called the aon. they dropped significantly to almost historic lows. pete: how do we counter act this? ainsley: what does that mean? dumb it down for us? you talk about currency rates confusing. >> got a product from china arrives at the port of long beach and it costs $100. ainsley: okay. >> they just dropped the value of their currency. down 10%. that means the value of that product in long beach is now $90. we impose, say, just say a 10% tariff. that takes it back up to $100. ains a wash. >> it's a wash in that sense. but the level of trade, that is going to go down. that's a real problem. pete: interesting. >> stunned silence. ainsley: now i understand it. pete: only go up from here or reaching a peak where we
get closer to a deal? where are we? >> i think it extends the length of this trade fight because it's very difficult to see how either side can back down. if the chinese back down, well, jinping has a real problem with his bureau, does he not? >> if president trump backs down he is going to have a problem with the democrats who are saying you are not being hard enough on china. it's not working. and, you have got the -- you have got your 401(k) really taking a hit. that is pressure on president trump. we're going to be down about 300 points on the market this morning. we were down 7 or 800 points late last week. add it all up. and your 401(k) is taking a hit. now are we, american voters, prepared to tolerate that kind of thing, support that in the name of being hard on china? or do we want to blink? i think this goes on for a long, long time. pete: i hope you are right. at some point you have to stare it down. >> okay. by the way you own bit coin? pete: i do. >> straight up this morning.
ainsley: really? >> because it's considered a flight to safety. gold up, bit coin up because of all this turmoil in the markets. steve: now, hold on a second, bit coin is way down though from where it was? >> yes. it's gained 25% in the last week. steve: pete lost his shirt. in fact i saw the video over the weekend. pete: i bought it high and low. almost 11,000. >> as of now it's $11,700 per coin. up about 700 bucks this morning. pete: i bought as low as 3,000 and high as 19,000. i'm about even now. >> i'm going to take financial advice from you? [laughter] pete: never. steve: stuart, thank you very much. we will watch him over on fox business starting at 9:00 a.m. on my take with stuart varney on fox nation. stuart, thank you very much. ainsley: two united airlines pilots under arrest accused of being too drunk to fly their planes. this isn't the first time we

lease the glc 300 suv for just $419 a month at the mercedes-benz summer event. going on now. steve: all right. quick headlines for you on this monday morning. >> the manhunt is intensifying for teen fugitives accused of killing three people, including an american. dive teams searching a river in canada after discovering this damaged boat. it's not far from where briar and cam mccloud were last seen. they have been on the run for nearly two weeks. and a teenager is facing attempted murder charges accused of throwing a child from the tenth floor of an art gallery in london. the 6-year-old is hospitalized in stable condition after falling five floors down. police don't think the boys
knew one another. all right. ainsley? ainsley: thank you, steve. over the weekend two united airline pilots were arrested accused of drinking before a flight. the pilots were supposed fly from glasco in scott land to newark, new jersey. trip was cancelled and pilots taken into custody. this isn't the first time something like this has happened. we found three other times just this year a u.s. airline pilot was stopped from flying for reportedly being drunk. joining me now pilot and safety team representative kyle bailey. thanks for joining us. >> nice to be with you. >> what are your thoughts about this. >> interesting thing to hear two pilots not one pilot. ainsley: right. drinking together, i guess. >> usually the one pilot will report the other one and suspect something. here most likely is another employee who pretty much turned in that person. it's very strange that two pilots. my gut feeling is possibly drinking. the night before. general rule is 8 hours gottle throttle is what they call it. so. ainsley: tough wait 8 hours. >> no drinking 8 hours prior
to the flight. so what probably might have happened is in the bar the night before, 10 hours before, had a little bit too much and then they get the breathalyzer when they show up and they are still over the .04 limit. ainsley: normally we don't have interaction with the pilot. they usually are standing at the door when we leave the plane. when we're getting on it they are always in there. you can see them as you are getting on the plane so the door closed. usually an employee turning them in. >> always an employee. very little interaction tweent passengers and pilots. usually after the flight see them at the cockpit door but not before. ainsley: i do know that united they issued a statement. they said we hold all of our employees to the highest standards and have a strict no tolerance policy for alcohol. these pilots were immediately removed from service and fully cooperating with local authorities. so, how often do you all get checked? are you -- do they do random drug testing? random alcohol test test test testing? what about medical tests? >> every six months an iler
pilots has to get a physical. if a doctor suspects something, there might be a test. typically the airline will do spot-checks. if a pilot shows up he might get a random drug and alcohol screen. it's pretty much randomly generated by a computer system. and that's typically the only test for alcohol in the system. and unless, you know, somebody makes a phone call and says such and such employee i suspect is possibly drinking. and that would be immediate. ainsley: what will happen to these pilots will they be able to work again. >> probably not. usually when something like this happens they are finished. probably won't be high pressure in the industry. they are finished. ainsley: what do you do when you are on a plane and suspect someone is drunk. >> call the airport police or even call 911. you want to make sure that plane does not take off. so usually call the airport authority, the airport police or just dial 911 and say i suspect that the pilot or a flight attendant is possibly drinking.
react very quickly to prevent that airplane from taking off. ainsley: all right. thank you so much for joining us, scott. >> thank you. ainsley: you are welcome. two deadly shootings in a matter of hours. 9 killed in ohio and 20 killed in texas. a live report coming up next. and it really shows. with all that usaa offers why go with anybody else? we know their rates are good, we know that they're always going to take care of us. it was an instant savings and i should have changed a long time ago. it was funny because when we would call another insurance company, hey would say "oh we can't beat usaa" we're the webber family. we're the tenney's we're the hayles, and we're usaa members for life. ♪ get your usaa auto insurance quote today. when didwhen i needed ton? jumpstart sales. build attendance for an event. help people find their way. fastsigns designed new directional signage. ...and got them back on track. get started at fastsigns.com.
29 people killed in el paso, texas and dayton, ohio. steve: police releasing brand new video showing the moments gunman opened fire on packed streets in dayton. disturbing. [gunfire] ainsley: no vantage point shows hundreds of people running away as you see the cops run in to confront the shooter. within 30 seconds he was dead. one of the victims was the gunman's own sister. they arrived tout area together before going their separate ways. pete: in el paso police now turning to domestic terrorism to their investigation into that deadly massacre. jonathan serrie is live on the ground there now. jonathan? >> good morning, again. the gunman something held without bond charged with capital murder in connection with the deaths of 20 people who lost their lives in this walmart you see behind me.
meanwhile, federal authorities are conducting their own investigation as well. trying to determine whether the defendant authored an anti immigrant online post as they consider domestic terrorism and hate crime charges. and the fbi is interviewing acquaintances of the defendant in the dallas area. >> so through those interviews we are putting an investigation together to be able to determine if he was part of a group or working with other individuals that were planning any future attacks. at this point we don't have any credible intelligence saying that there is anything going on in the future. >> take a look at this video posted on facebook. it shows the inside of the walmart when saturday's gunfire broke out. you can see someone hiding under a shelf as you hear the shots being fired. a mother and father shopping for school supplies lost their lives while shielding their baby from the gunfire. >> i think they were all three together and i think the father tried to shield him, tried to shield her and
she shielded him. there is no way he would have let him have anything happen to that child. i know he was right there as well. >> over the weekend el paso county sheriff richard wiles posted on his personal facebook page this anglo man came here to kill hispanics. i'm outraged and you should be too. this entire nation should be outraged in this day and age with all the serious issues we face, we are still confronted with people who will kill another for the sole reason of the color of their skin. last night democratic presidential candidate beto o'rourke who used to represent el paso in congress, joined hundreds of residents for a silent march and vigil in honor of the victims. >> we bore the absolute worst of it in a community for the last 10 years, which has averaged 18 murders a year for the entire year. we saw 20 people gunned down in one day. >> and president trump responding this morning not only to the shootings here in texas but also in ohio,
taking to twitter. the president writings republicans and democrats must come together and get strong background checks. >> perhaps, marrying this legislation with desperately needed immigration reform. back to you. steve: so thank you very much, jonathan seare. find out what the president has to say. he will be addressing the nation at 10:00. you will see it live right here on fox. ainsley: that's right. the weekend's deadly shooting begs the question what is driving people to commit these handwriting news acts? steve: joining us now forensic psychologist evil thoughts and wicked deeds chris. he joins us from los angeles this morning. >> good morning. >> as you look at what we have heard so far as they try to piece together what happened in el paso and dayton, what are your observations? >> it's pretty clear that these are two dissimilar events in the sense that the one in el paso seems to have a strong ideological base to
it a supremacist leaning situation of ideology. whereas the one in dayton, if it's true, the history that i have heard about that that was more of an individual that was very fixated on killing just for the sake of killing. the other guy seems to have dressed up his desire to kill in ideological rhetoric, probably virtually radicalized through what he is reading on the internet on social media, very stimulated by that there is some overlap and both want the notoriety in all likelihood of doing these kinds of things and the power and the gran grand as cit. one is more ideologically inspired than the others. pete: name of your book is "evil thoughts, wicked deeds."
why does it happen and what can be done to address it. >> it happens because some people have come to the conclusion that violence is the answer to their problems. one set of problems might be the hunger for power that they want to control and have omnipotent control over others. whereas others may have a sense of homelessness and desperation or vengeance and, you know, again, a lot of people have ideas of hurt feelings, of feeling powerless. but there are certain people who have, as a structure, their personality, a lot of narcissism, and that gives them a lack of empathy for other people, a sense that they're entitled to do these things, and they become fixated on their own self-absorbed ideas. what can be done is see something campaigns do work. particularly these days, these kinds of people are putting their ideas out there on the internet. i think the strength and
background checks is super important. and we have to do something about keeping guns out of the hands of people like these, which means probably repeated background checks on individuals as they change in their lives and gravitate towards these ideas. that's just a few of the things that can be done. ainsley: that is a good point. this one guy in dayton, ohio, apparently he had a kill list and rape list. they had a lockdown at his high school years ago. and he legally owned this gun. so if he had been on a list where he couldn't buy the gun then perhaps this would have been appreciated. we can always monday morning quarterback. can you fit the personality like this? because we always hear when these things happen it doesn't surprise me, this guy had a past. he was evil. he was dark. can you fix a personality like that? >> these kinds of personality shifts can happen. it takes a lot of therapy, a lot of times. but it also, sometimes, takes certain degree of
containment, behavioral controls. people kind of on them. it causes us to rethink how do we contain people like this? the problem with a lot of our laws is that unless somebody is eminently dangerous, they cannot be hospitalized, and i think there needs to be some prifertion for people like this to be able to monitor them with a greater degree of control and be able to kind of structure up their lives a little differently than we have been able to do. it's very challenging to deal with these kinds of thoughts and ideas. and it takes a lot of thinking and a lot of systemic thinking, i believe, to be able to manage these kinds you have individuals. steve: chris, you say these suspects are not mentally ill in any traditional sense of that meaning. what do you mean by that? >> what i mean is personality disorder people. people who have flawed characters. there are chronic ways --
whoops, i lost my ear piece, that have flawed ways of dealing with the world. these kinds of people are difficult to treat. but, they are not typically going to be hearing voices or seeing things. that does, and can happen, but that's not what we are seeing in some of these more recent cases. pete: cris thank you very much. you lost your isb so you can't hear us. >> thank you very much. i am catching some of it. so thank you and i wish well to the people that are grappling with this problem and suffering with their losses. ainsley: absolutely. pray for them. steve: all right. 18 minutes now before the top of the hour. jillian joins us with an update on olivia newton john. >> olivia newton john is opening up about breast cancer fight. the 70-year-old greece star and daughter says it's not something they like to dwell on. >> talk about a battle or a
war i think that sets up that kind of feeling in your body as you are battling something strange inside you. i let it go and tell it to leave. even though you can like hide from people you still feel that energy and i didn't want them to write stories and make her being reminded that she is sick. >> this is the actress' third cancer diagnosis. she is auctioning off several of other iconic outfits for charity this fall including the leather jacket and pants from greece. rozel posting this instagram picture from what she says was behind the scenes at a photo shoot for victoria secret pink. last year the brand came under fire when a company executive made insensitive comments about transgender models. the new england patriots reportedly signing tom brady to a two year 70 million contract extension one day after his 42nd birthday. the six time pro-bowl super

pete: controversy erupts at democrat socialist convention this weekend when one delegate refers to the crowd as guys. >> guys, can we please keep the chatter to main mum. i'm one of the people who is very, very prone to sensory overload. >> please do not use gendered language to address everyone. steve: charlie kirk says this is pc culture out of control and is he going to join us live coming up next most? just the way you look at me ♪ makes me smile ♪ do you have concerns about mild memory loss related to aging? prevagen is the number one pharmacist-recommended memory support brand. you can find it in the vitamin aisle in stores everywhere. prevagen. healthier brain. better life.
jillian: good morning, welcome back, quick headlines now. a hospital gets so overwhelmed with gunshot victims that it stops accepting patients. a drama center in chicago reaching capacity following a series of shootings in the city according to local reports six people were shot dead and another 43 were hurt in gun violence in chicago this weekend. more than 1500 people have been shot in the city this year. and doctors in two states seeing a spike in patients who vape. 14 teenagers and adults have been hospitalized in wisconsin and illinois for breathing issues. some of them even required a ventilator. the american lung
association warn ecigarettes contain dangerous chemicals that can cause heart and lung disease. steve: held national convention in georgia this weekend. some attendees were not happy with what was referred to as the sensory overload and use of gendered pronouns. listen to this. >> point of personal privilege. >> guys, first of all james jackson i just want to say can we please keep the chat tore a minimum i'm unbefore the very people prone to sensory overload. there is a lot of whispering and chattering going on. >> point of personal privilege. >> yes. >> please do not use gendered language to address everyone. pete: here to weigh in is the founder of turning point u.s.a. charlie kurt. charlie, first of all, we are talking about democratic socialism usually defined by that by their view of the economy. in this case they seem to be fighting over other things. >> look, this might come as a huge surprise to a lot of
viewers. what you saw right there has now become the mainstream on college campuses. and i've been fighting this fight for many years now where the ideas are so radical and so outside of the mainstream you almost have to look at it and say who could possibly support this? there is so much nonsense in that short clip it's hard to even analyze it all. i will pick one part first of all when you noticed the speaker i don't want to assume that speaker's gender said he him. now college campus you have to identify what pronoun that's use. so he him or her, her-she so on and so forth. you misgender somebody you could be potentially subject to disciplinary action. i know this might sound so absurd. it's almost who has time for this, well, this comes from the university. this comes from the college campuses. this sort of this gathering is the point of origination for the squad for ocasio-cortez and the radicals that we now see in congress. this is their base of support that find their time and energy around such
nonsensical ideas such as this and boy it sure seems like they are going to devour each other some time very soon. steve: is that speaker was complaining and we just saw it's a large room filled with people, probably a couple hundred people there and there was background noise there and he said he was prone to sensory overload. but what got the other person angry was the fact that he referred to the assemblage there as guys, right? >> so that's called using gendered language. again, this is something that comes straight from the university. where instead of saying hey, guys, you have to say hello people, because guys somehow reinforces the idea that there is a patriarchy in our society. this is the sort of radical ideology that only universities are expressing and advancing and at turning point u.s.a. we see this all the time where if you say something as innocent as hey guys can you please, you know, calm down a little bit or not be as loud. all of a sudden you are
accused of using gendered language. pete: another term we hear from the university was triggered. that was also used on the floor. take a listen. >> i have already asked people to be mindful of the chatter of their comrades who are sensitive to sensory overload and that goes double for the heckling and the hissing. it is also triggering to my anxiety like it isn't just for like keep things civil or whatever. so people aren't going to get triggered. pete: glazing over the fact they are referring to each other as comrades. >> i was going to mention that, too. pete: if one person is offended or triggered then everyone else has to change the way they interact. >> pete, that is such a good point. the tyranny of the minority. singular individual personal privilege all of a sudden can overrule the will of the majority. will i don't want to give them that credit.
a singular individual can silence discussion and dialogue because they themselves might be offended and understand how this has really negative ramifications. singular person might find one thing wrong or objectionable with what decent people might find normal, correct, all of a sudden, all sort of dialogue discussion can be absolutely watered and ended completely. pete: can't even talk about it? >> that's right. i want your viewers to understand this though. this is growing. this sort of gendered awareness language is now in corporate america. it is on basically every college campus across the country including many that are considered mainstream. this is not stopping. this is not just segregated and secluded to the radicals and democrat socialists. this will soon be in congress and this sort of ideology is growing quickly in america and let's do everything we can to stop it. steve: one other topic of concern is the environment. so much talk about global warming and climate change and stuff like that. vogue magazine has a headline how to talk to your kids about ecoanxiety and they define it as ecoanxiety
is a specific type of worry or fear focusing on environmental destruction. it has been at a serious level enough to interfere with their lives. what do you make of that? >> well, first of all, i really find it hard to believe that there are 5 and 6 years old that truly have anxiety towards the inevitable alleged destruction of our environment. if that actually does exist. then isn't it the people on the left saying the world is going to end in 12 years their fault those children actually have this anxiety if it is true. isn't the people say we only have 10 years left to live. this is something so based in fear mongering in demagoguery the used that children are having some sort of anxiety that the world is going to end in 10 to 12 years antiscience and just not true whatsoever. again, you look at the left. look at what they are trying to do. make it seem it's for the children why we need some sort of green new deal or more government control over our economy. pete: charlie, there is no doubt kids have worries and anxiety. just last nitz one of my boys was worried whether he
would be on the team with other two boys on basketball camp this morning. not just families. it's schools reinforcing ecoanxiety too by being obsessed with climate change. >> that's exactly right. unfortunately, this is a really important point. elementary school children spend much more time focusing on climate change and the environment than they do on american history. you have fourth and fifth graders. steve: true. >> know much more about the idea that the world with l. end in 10 years than 17176, the war of 1812. abraham lincoln or the beauty of the american founding. that right there can answer the question of you who these radical ideas are actually able to spread in our society when you spend far more time on the ideas the world is going to end in 10 years which is totally false and not on the history of our country. steve: all right. charlie kirk joining us from phoenix, today. thank you, sir. >> thank you. steve: coming up in next hour live from new york. country star john rich is here live alongside of our nation's gold star family

[gunfire] pete: shots ringing out. look at this. another vantage point shows hundreds of people running away. they were running in one direction, as cops in this clip
run around the corner to confront the shooter within 30 seconds. the shooter was dead. one of the victims was the gunman's own sister. they arrived together before going their own ways. steve: police honoring victims in el paso, texas, as police label that shooting as domestic terror. jonathan serrie live el paso on this monday morning. reporter: good morning. the alleged gunman is being held without bond, charge with capital murder charged in the deaths of 20 people, those people losing their lives in the walmart behind me. federal authorities looking into those domestic terrorism charges are also investigating whether the defendant authored an anti-immigrant online post as they consider hate crime charges. a video posted on facebook shows the inside of the walmart when saturday's gun fire broke out. you see someone hiding under a
shelf as you hear the shots being fired. a mother and father died while shielding their 2-year-old child from the gun fire. >> the pain is unreal. you should never bury your daughter or your son before you. reporter: over the weekend el paso county sheriff richard wiles posted on his personal facebook page, el paso will never be the same. a racist came to our city. it will never work. the backlash of this community as we hold national, state, local politicians accountable will be only point that will be made. last night democratic presidential candidate beto o'rourke who used to represent el paso in congress joined hundreds of residents in the a vigil for the victims. >> so the rest of the world knows this, he was not from el paso, texas. he was from half a state away,
bringing that fear, bringing that anger, bringing that hatred and bringing that racism. reporter: 10:00 eastern time, president trump is expected to speak out from the white house addressing these two mass shooting incidents in texas and ohio. back to you. steve: jonathan serrie. thank you very much the president of the united states is going to be addressing the nation two hours from right now. yesterday he did say that we have to get it stopped. this has been going on for years and years. he suggest ad lot of things are in the works. that's what he said yesterday. this morning we have better idea what he might be thinking about, about an hour ago he sent out this tweet. ainsley: we cannot let those killed in el paso, texas, and dayton, ohio, to die in vain and likewise those seriously wounded and like those that came before them. republicans and democrats must
come together and get strong background checks perhaps marrying this with legislation with desperately needed immigration reform. we must have something good, if not great, come out of these two tragic events, the tendency come out with federal overaing solution, comes down to individuals, souls, families, mental health, the games we play and people we interact with on social media, send people into spirals or dark places. how much can the federal government monitor that. how can they will be committed if they are found to be mentally ill. not just enough to blame the weapon, blame the instrument. in this case humans are pulling the trigger, and how do you address that. steve: we had a forensic
psychologist said how they are dissimilar because of the two dissimilar shooters. the president is addressing background check. would have a background check have prevented the dayton shooter from getting a gun? because it was revealed, in high school he drew up a hit list, people he liked to kill, he scrawled it on the bathroom wall. chris, the psychologist i talked about, says the laws on the books right now do not make it easy to enforce this. watch. >> it causes us to rethink how do we contain people like this. the problem with a lot of our laws is that unless somebody is imminently dangerous they cannot be hospitalized and i think there needs to be some provision for people like this to be able to monitor them with a greater degree of control, to structure up their lives differently than we've been able to do. it is very challenging to deal
with these kinds of thoughts, ideas. takes a lot of thinking, systemic thinking i believe to manage these kinds of individuals. ainsley: reading about some of these stories, there was a mom, she was 25 years old in walmart down in el paso, she was shopping in a walmart, which we all do, shopping for back-to-school supplies for her three kids, the older kids. she was holding her two-year-old son, she shot, her family said she was shielding him. he ended up breaking some bones. she was killed. her husband was killed. these three kids are raised without their parents. one guy was in the check outline out of the bathroom. there is chaos. she hears later that her husband was one of the ones killed. pete: veterans dealing with posttraumatic stress. because they fear they to talk about that because they could
lose their second amendment right. they said i fought to defend myself. that doesn't pertain to this case. good people with good intention can box people out of their rights. same with facility in el paso, the mall and walmart are the gun-free zones. best of intentions to keep guns out. ainsley: they sell guns in walmart. pete: i have to look at particular details of that walmart. even though open carry state, stores themselves make decisions whether you can carry in or not. did the shooter take advantage? we don't know. the best intentions in-laws don't mean you stop the shootings from happening. steve: two mass shoot national 13 hours. 29 people were murdered. meanwhile it sounds like there was potential copycat, at least the threat of it over the weekend down 10 miles from tampa. some guy called the walmart store, said i'm on my way and i'm armed. the headlines out of that area, that he was threatening to shoot
up the walmart. >> his mom works there. steve: so the cops acted quickly. they were able to bust him. unclear if he actually had any weapons. he has been charged with false reporting, using a firearm in a violent manner. the sheriff down there had this observation about this. >> he was intrigued over the shootings, over the past couple of days, after the events over the last week. we all fear for our safety to begin with. so to have an individual who, for whatever reason, wants to be a copycat or a wants to instill fear in people, for whatever that motive may be, is disturbing. there is going to be a zero tolerance in hillsborough county for anyone who seeks to instill fear in our residents. >> in that case it was interesting the guy called ahead, i'm coming to shoot up the walmart because they had had an opportunity to call law enforcement officers. almost like he wanted to get caught. but in the dayton, ohio,
situation, we had that school gift on who said if you have a mental illness, it es treatable. hard to treat, lots of therapy, but this kid apparently in high school he had a kill list he wrote on the wall in a bathroom and rape list of the girls. the school had to be on lock down. he was suspended. surprised he wasn't expelled. he glorified violence. was a bully. he said i'm going to hell, i'm not coming back. he praises satan. in a situation like that you get the child help, maybe he did have help. maybe he wasn't one of the once that could be kurd. but this is a bad kid. you know, lots of kids get in trouble in high school, but when your kid has a kill list a rape list, get them help. pete: you have the combination of desensitizization of these
things, violence is more familiar. then you have glorification. wall-to-wall media coverage. we intentionally don't use the name, don't use the maiming, don't piv the guy anymore fame he wants. when kids are disenchanted, trying to be copycat, dan bongino was on earlier talking about how tough it is to address that. >> this copycat phenomenon is very real thing. we're in a real conundrum, steve. it is news. you obviously have to cover it on the networks. it is devastating news nonetheless, people are entitled to hear the details about. we can't be ignorant, pretend it is not a legitimate problem that people with severe psychological disturbances, beyond our capacity to explain in simple news appearances will find some sick inspiration in this. steve: meanwhile the chief of staff for the president, mick mulvaney was on one of the sunday chat shows.
he was responding to a number of democrats who said that president trump has a lot to do with what happened down in el paso. pete: almost all of them, steve, said that. steve: he said that is not fair. the el paso shooter, put on line, he was expressing those sentiments long before donald trump was president of the united states. ainsley: you can't blame the administration. you know who is responsible? the shooter. pete: like blaming the shooter of congressional baseball game, bernie sanders blaming shooter which no responsible person would do in the political rhetoric we have. ainsley: trey gowdy from south carolina, he reacted to the shooting, the political fall out, like this. >> the right to life is the most fundamental basic primary right we have. it is the right from which all other rights eminate. doesn't matter if you have a right to a lawyer if you're dead. doesn't matter if you have a right to free speech if you're dead. doesn't matter if you have a
right to keep and bear arms if you're dead. on a personal level, i'm willing to subrogate any of my other rights to avoid a sandy hook, another pulse nightclub, another day like we had yesterday, but i'm out of politics. i'm not going back. so the legislators need to look at laws on the books. are they being enforced. if the answer is yes, we still have gaps in our laws that need to be fixed, keep in mind, you don't have a single right for which there is not some corresponding responsibility and restriction. every right you have has a restriction. if we need more restrictions, then draw the causal scientific link between what you're proposing and what you hope to be the outcome. but just more laws that are not going to be enforced is a panacea and it is not going to work. show me a law to prevent the next sandy hook and sign me up as a husband and father. show me the law and sign me up, i will give up any other right i have. steve: will washington change anything? it is curious that the president
of the united states in the tweet from an hour ago, republicans and democrats must come together to get strong background checks. he went on to talk about immigration reform legislation for that. it will be interesting to see how he explains that tweet at 10:00 this morning. pete: trey gowdy said on personal level i'm willing to subjugate any of my other rights. i love a lot of what he said. a lot of people would take issue the idea of subjugating individual rights to the constitution declaration because somebody misused it. the laws we should attempt to put in place need to address the issue, that is the point. not make us feel better or get us -- >> i don't think he will they will take away the rights. there are limits on it. you know at times like this, people want things fixed. ainsley: he is saying let's do something about it. i'm not a lawmaker anymore but those who are listening need to do. pete: the challenges, we've been on the couch. there are no easy fixes. washington doesn't do much well.

♪ ainsley: a republican congressional candidate is facing criticism from the left, but not over policy. it is because of how she looks. a progressive political activist tweeting, quote, do you think it is coincidence kansas republicans are recruiting attractive young woman to run for office? they learned it works in local, state cool board races and legislative races so they're sticking with a winning strategy. here to respond, sara heart we're. thanks for joining us. >> thanks for having me on this morning. ainsley: you announced you were running for congress a week ago. on day 2, elizabeth arnold, is progressive political activist, she says you're running all about your looks. what was your response? >> that was day two. day one, i actually had the dccc attack dogs against me, for two simple reasons, i can flip the
seat and second i'm nancy pelosi's worst nightmare. day two, targeted tweets against me saying only reason i was running for congress, the only reason i was recruited was based on my appearance. i called these out for what they were, what they are, they are sexist. this isn't just an attack against me. it is not just an attack against republican women. this is an attack against women everywhere. and you know, as you said earlier throughout the show, the november 2020 election, this isn't a beauty pageant. the election between that reese and sara will come down to two things only, policy and leadership. i would challenge anyone out there to go on my bio, go to sara for kansas.org, care my accomplishments to that of sharise. you tell me who is better equipped to win this congressional district. ainsley: why does this woman think it is okay to go after
looks? is that a double standard? what if a republican was going after kamala harris? >> bottom line, we shouldn't put anybody in boxes or labels. i just stepped down as the ceo of the national down syndrome society. i've been fighting discrimination my entire adult life, to those born with extra 21st chromosome. i've seen those with down syndrome denied kidney transplants because they have down syndrome. i've seen them denied health insurance and access to education. this is just unfortunate, this woman, arnold, this progressive democrat from johnson county felt it was okay to go after my appearance, to not focus on issues and substance, my track record of getting things done. ainsley: you're running against sharse david, incumbent democratic congresswoman. tell us why you would be different than she is and your experience with the national down syndrome society. you were the ceo of for five years, how you will use your
experience there to go to washington? >> absolutely. sharise's very first vote in congress this cycle was to confirm to elect nancy pelosi again. she votes with her 96% of the time and her ideology and socialist agenda we see coming out of washington is just not aligned with this district. you know as ceo of the national down syndrome society we fought for the human rights of people with down syndrome. my background and my results, my track record as a ceo, as a disability advocate, just getting things done is exactly what this congressional district needs. that is why i look forward to being the next representative from the 13th congressional district in kansas. ainsley: sara hart we're. we wish you the best. >> thank you. ainsley: a former google worker claims he was fired for being conservative. owe warns the tech giant he wants to take down president

won. they vowed it would never happen again. they want to use all of the power, all the resources that they have to control the flow of information to the public and make sure that trump loses in 2020. steve: how do they do that? >> well they have a lot of methods. one thing you might not know that youtube censors a lot like, every three months, youtube deletes 8 million videos and three million accounts. recently google has been getting extremely aggressive censoring even political advertisements. they openly do it. works once or twice. there is no push back. they continue to they ramp up the censorship there is bias in the search results. they released search quality ratings they don't want to return too many results for extreme sites, if you're conservative news outlet they consider you a extreme news site. they have a way to put their thumb on the scale. they have information about every single voter in the u.s. they can mine that information,
to build psychological profiles and figure out how to change your mind. they run counterprograming on youtube. if you visit a conservative video, they will display other content below it. ainsley: kevin what did they do to you? you said you were fired. tell us why you were fired, what you saw behind the scenes. >> basically when i joined google i saw a lot of conservative employees being mistreated. they were being harassed. they were being threatened. they were being blacklisted. i complained to hr about. i ran it up the chain. i came to a vp and i got a final written warning letter because of concerns. i took it to the labor board. google is mistreating, there is a lot of discrimination here. what can we do about it? they eventually fired me for participating in the labor board investigation. president trump needs to know -- sorry. pete: please finish. >> president trump needs to know there are a lot of potential
whistle-blowers in the company, they will speak up if they know he has their back. pete: here is what google had to say about the firing. we enforce our work place rules without political viewpoint. unauthorized access and theft of confidential company information is not. so that what they claim you did. you say it is because of political views. why is it so one sided? a lot of americans would say, booming economy, capitalism is good for a company like google. why do they discriminate openly or privately against conservatives and president trump? >> they are very biased. there is bias at every level of the organization. there are a lot of activists working for google. the group think there is extremely strong and if you disagree with it just one iota, they will go after you. they will target you. they will make you an example. they are very, very intent on making sure nobody inside of google can speak up against their bias. steve: as we head toward the
2020 election, what should be done? should washington step in? what could be done? >> i believe that is the most important thing that can happen. lawmakers need to step in. i think government agencies need to step in. they need to review the history of labor complaint against google, why were all these cases close what is going on in the work place. the workplace problems are well-documented, but nobody ever stepped in to do anything about them. i think that is a disgrace kevin, you worked at google, you're intimately familiar with that organization but would you say the same thing is happening at facebook, twitter, instagram, all the other social media cites? is the same culture pervasive against pro-trump or conservatives? >> i heard from friend it is common at the other companies. i heard some of the companies are lot better keeping it under wraps, keeping it under control. at google, it is basically the wild west. ainsley: what are you doing now? how are you putting food on the table? >> i have another job in silicon
valley. steve: thank you very much for coming on and telling us your story. it is scary. pete: raises an alarm absolutely. >> thank you. pete: scary stuff when you consider someone controlling what you see, when you see it, why you see it and you don't even know what the code is behind it. steve: they say it is the algorithm. they write the algorithm. how many times a day do you use google? pete: exactly. ainsley: this is nothing surprising. pete: it doesn't surprise anybody. you have to remember every single day what you're looking at. chilling new video showing people running for their lives, as police run towards the shooter, the sound of the gunfire, killing him in 30 seconds. steve: how critical was that response? a law enforcement panel to discuss that next. ♪ logy for great taste. logy

chuck schumer, speaker nancy pelosi, to the field of 2020 democratic candidates demanding the senate return to washington to tackle gun control, vote on a house bill passed earlier this year. at least one republican, senator tim scott says he is willing to return immediately to talk about gun legislation. as the president, who we'll hear from in less than 90 minutes, tweeting this in the last hour. we cannot let those killed in el paso, texas and dayton, ohio, die in vain like those seriously wounded. we cannot forget them and many who came before them. republicans and democrats must come together to get strong background checks, perhaps marrying, this legislation with desperately needed immigration reform. we must have something good, if not great come out of these go tragic events. already senator kirsten gillibrand is blasting that suggestion. >> it is absurd. this is part of the problem. he is linking issue of basic
common sense gun reform we should go back in the senate today to vote on with this issue of immigration, because again he continues to try to demonize people seeking asylum, people needing our help. reporter: no indication that mcconnell has any plans to call anyone back at this point. he fractured his shoulder at home over the weekend. he is recovering. but the president who will talk to us very soon does have the authority to call lawmakers back under article 2, section 3, a move not seen since harry truman. we'll find out. one thing for sure, something is happening here despite lawmakers on vacation. guys? pete: griff, thank you very much, on insight in washington, d.c. we talk about what happened in dayton and el paso. we have "blue lives matter," joseph patrice. and former westchester count police sergeant, steve cardian. thank you very much for being
here this morning. i want to break down the response of police. we talked about the amount of time it took in el paso. you're talking about responding, no shots fired. we saw dramatic new video of dayton people running in the other direction, the officers rounding the corner within 30 seconds to engage the gunman. put us in the shoes and minds of those police at the moment? >> you would be surprised how calm you remain during such an incident. they did an amazing job. they saw the shooter coming towards him. they lied in wait. he was target fixated on people he was chasing. he never even saw them and they took him out, a great job. pete: is that your experience as well? a lot of folks say, calm, that is the last thing i would feel in a moment? >> that is training. you go through the academy, you go through training. they put you in scenarios. you're under all the stress. that is the whole point. it is where you put somebody
under increments of stress or., that you create resistance, you're able to get into a scenario and respond. you think clearly, tactically, you put your emotions aside and instincts of fear and self-preservation to move forward in the face of danger. pete: absolutely. joseph in this instance in dayton, it was 30 seconds. they were around the corner, shots fired, they were engaged. more typically there is a call. there is series of minutes driving to the scene, maybe to get mentally prepared for what you might be facing. is one more difficult than the other? your reaction to that response? >> we as a nation first off have to praise the officers for the way at the responded, the professionalism. the problem in a car, you're going, you have more time to think. in this situation you're around the corner, right in the scene. people running away, you're not thinking about it. as steve said earlier, that after you start shaking. the whole point to preserve human life no matter who you are in law enforcement. that is what the officers did,
saved so many lives by the way they acted. pete: the shooter, we don't know what style the rifle was, a long gun, maybe ar-50, whatever it was, they are around the corner with a nine millimeter pistols, that something going through your mind, i might be outgunned? >> no. shot placement is the key. he was wearing a vest. they had good schott placement. only 20% of the body would be instant kill where you bleed out quickly. great job. praise for the officers and the way that they reacted i should say. pete: absolutely. evie, any additional thoughts where we go forward, looking at law enforcement's role, anything different as you look at these situations? >> i think we're seeing more and more of them, law enforcement training to deal with the situations. you know, there is, there is so much training that needs to go into it. we need to look at, outside of law enforcement, the american psyche and culture because there
is something happening here that is deep rooted. why are we seeing more and more of these? why are people using these as coping mechanisms there is something much more deeper and profound happening here in the united states amongst us we have to look, figure out why are these happening, where are we failing as a society, why we're not teaching people to have better coping skills or dealing with mental health issues, or the other health issues that we're seeing so these scenarios don't happen. pete: other than a gun. joe, briefly, running out of time. last word. >> politicians need to stop playing games about the budget. more officers out there. more higher visibility. to stop the individuals before they get to their target. pete: well-said. jillian, out to you. jillian: good morning to you, everyone at home. we start with a fox news alert. senator rand paul suffering a another health emergency, he says stemming from the attack by his neighbor two years ago. the senator tweeting, unfortunately will have to limit
