tv The Daily Briefing With Dana Perino FOX News September 16, 2019 11:00am-12:00pm PDT
>> harris: they're talking to one of those women and a relative of antonio brown as well, who will defend him. jim gray, speaking plainly, as you always do, speaking your mind. good to see you. i'm harris. thanks for watching. here's dana. >> dana: fox news alert. we're about to hear from president trump on what's turned out to be a jam packed day to start the workweek. i'm dana perino and this is "the daily briefing." looking live there at the east wing of the white house as president trump any minute now is set to award the latest civilian honor to a baseball legend. it will be the first time we've seen the president since tensions with iran hit a new high. we'll see if he has anything to say about attacks on oil fields in saudi arabia, which threaten to send gas prices soaring. he could also address "the new york times" about an article
about brett cavanaugh. the paper now reporting that she woman doesn't even recall the accused incident. let's bring in guy benson. and lee carter as welsh president and partner. that's an apt title for today. lee, what a story over the weekend. what do you think about the new york times first having publicized this and then the walk back of shame, as i'm calling it? >> i think it's got devastating implications for so many reasons. on the one hand, you're going to question kavanaugh and the media. there's a reason why trust of the media is lower than government and the president. it's because of incidents like this. when we don't trust the media, you have big trouble. at the best case it's a storrry of why letting facts get in the
way of a good story. >> dana: guy, a friend of mine who lived in new york his whole life wrote this is not "the new york times" that i grew up reading. you wrote today laying out what happened. accusations not backed up. also not even included in the report that shows up in the sunday paper, the most highly read of the week which basically says, by the way, the so called accuser doesn't even remember that it happened so she can even be the accuser. your thoughts? >> correct. last year the left, led by the main stream press, which was an active participant, lost the fight on brett kavanaugh. they fought hard and dirty and, thankfully, anyway lost. now it seems they are bound and determined to lose it again. this is discrediting. i think it's disgraceful. it should be humiliating not only for "the new york times" but for the partisans who rushed out and called for impeachment
against a sitting supreme court justice based on a completely uncorroborated allegation where the accusations coming second or third hand from a supposed witness who, by the way, is a partisan democrat, has worked for the clintons, reportedly has some beef with kavanaugh dating back to yale. >> dana: his name is max stire. >> he's an attorney and molly hemmingway has done a lot of important work showing who he is. he's not commenting. he is a supposed witness on behalf of a victim, if you want to use the term victim, a woman, who said she has no recollection of any of this happening, and yet you have six 2020 presidential candidates in that neighborhood coming out saying you've got to impeach the guy. >> dana: let me have lee respond to this. this is kamala harris. she said i sat through though hearings. brett kavanaugh lied to the u.s.
senate and most importantly to the american people, who was put on the court through a sham process and his place on the court is an insult to the pursuit of truth and justice. he must be impeached. amy klobuchar said my concern here is the process was a sham. i don't think you can look at impeachment hearings without getting the documents. the attorney general is shielding the documents. lee, i won't read the whole thing, basically said the new york times did not even contact him for this story and if they had, they would have reminded them of several facts, including that ramirez lawyer, the so called accuser, declined to provide documentary evident. even the u.s. times doesn't even call senator who is being blamed. >> no, i think this is another example of why the facts don't set you free. you go out there and say all of the facts you want and yet people are out there believing this story in "the new york
times." they're not looking at the foot notes. they continue to spread this as gospel. the candidates are out there saying they're calling for an impeachment. it is so, so difficult, such a difficult position for kavanaugh to be in and republicans to be in, to have to defend something that's not even grounded in facts or truth. they saw this because it fits within their narrative and they're going to run with it. now here we are. >> dana: it is interesting when it comes to republicans. you think back to last year and the polling and the confirm eight hearing that brett kavanaugh went through. nothing unites conservatives like these attacks against brett kavanaugh. >> yep. my phone was blowing up last night and this morning from friends of mine who were sort of trump skeptical saying these people are going to force me to vote for this man in 2020 if they're going to keep going down this path in particular. this is one that really bothers a lot of people. there's due process, there's fairness questions, there's
egregious media bias, there's high stakes fight over judges, which is a major issue for a lot of conservatives. the media was counting on this to say, let's bury the facts that the so called victim doesn't remember any of this. there's nothing here. let's skip the part of the story where there's actual evidence or lack there of. let's move to the start of the story where we're talking about impeachment and the swirl of controversy, without getting to what the controversy is supposedly about. there's just a void of nothingness there. they've quickly moved the story on an accelerated timeline. don't think too carefully about any of the facts involved. let's get to the controversy to put an asterisk next to the name of brett kavanaugh which one of ford's attorneys said, was part of the reason she came forward. the whole thing stinks. >> dana: in just about a minute, we're going to have the president of the united states. do you remember a month ago when
"the new york times" wanted to have a town hall meeting to discuss the fact they had written a headline that wasn't too favorable to the president, so they changed the headline. then the editors had a big meeting. do you think there will be a town hall at "the new york times" to talk about this? >> i don't think there will be. this will be one more thing that will continue to divide our country. we're not gonna believe it. every new york supporter will be anti-kavanaugh and we're not going to have any progress but i don't believe anyone will learn anything from this. >> dana: do you think there will be internal push back at "the new york times?" there are other reporters' reputations on the line here. >> you would hope so. there might be reporters saying, hey, why didn't we at least put in the story about this book that's coming out written about two of our reporters that the woman in question doesn't remember the incident. that did not make it into the
story about this woman, who remains unnamed. that is a massive journalistic problem and a credibility shredding. >> dana: there should be an asterisk next to all of the book mentions. >> and next to the name of every single person running for president who rushed out to this impeachment mob based on nothing. it is absolutely disgraceful tpp . there should be percussions. >> dana: while we wait for the president, i did want to ask you something else. kyle smith wrote a piece today that said from his perspective, that this is all leading up to the ability that if roe v. wade were overturned, that there can be a look back with an asterisk next to brett kavanaugh's name that we told you all along that he was against women and this is a way to try to set up for that? what do you think of that? >> you don't even have to read
national review for that theory. as i briefly mentioned before, christine blase ford, the most significant accuser, her lawyer gave a speech in just the last month or two -- >> dana: it was just last week, guy. >> the news cycle flies so quickly. it was in the last couple weeks where she admitted openly putting that asterisk next to kavanaugh, putting him in a shadow for the rest of his career, especially on abortion jurisprudence, was part of the goal in all of this. i'm sorry, when you have all of these bread crumbs and they all lead in the same direction, and then you have interest from an attorney like that in public, it really is devastating. they're being sort of open about it, which i guess on some level is refreshing. >> dana: guy and lee, thanks for joining me today. >> you bet. >> dana: so the new warning for iran after drone strikes hit key saudi oil facilities and sent
oil and gas prices sky rocketing. tehran is denying it was behind the saudi arabia oil supply was attacked, there is reason to believe we know the culprits are locked and loaded depending on verification but are waiting to hear from the kingdom who they believe was the cause of the attack. joining me now, a fobbix news contributor. what do you make of the weekend? all just about this idea that the president already getting out there and saying we know what's behind it? >> well, they do know who's behind it. they're a tehran proxy. so regardless, whether it was by proxy or done direction, u.s. officials are telling other news organizations that it was missiles were fired from iranian territory. so, we'll see what the intelligence says when they're ready to release it. wouldn't it be ironic if we
launched a military strike on iran after john bolton left? >> dana: would be great to have arm chair quarterbacking if we could. the vice president's chief of staff was asked a question earlier about what does locked and loaded actually mean? here's what he said. >> i think locked and loaded means several things. america today under this president is far better prepared to handle these sorts of events because we're now a net exporter of oil. >> dana: let me also have you listen to senator chris kuhn on the senate foreign relations whitty. he had this to say. >> iran is one of the most dangerous state sponsors of terrorism. this may well be the thing that calls for military action again iran if that's what the intelligence supports. >> dana: i thought that was quite a remarkable statement. >> that is. there will be bipartisan support for a response, whatever the
president chooses, because if this came from iranian territory attacking a u.s. ally like this, that's an unprecedented escalation on the part of iran. what's happening, the iranians are buckling under the weight of an shuns president trump put on them. fox news 17 of 18 iranian pension funds including those of the armed forces are near collapse. >> dana: let me stop you for just a moment. secretary of defense just tweeted. the united states military with or interagency team is working with our partners to address this unprecedented attack and defense international based rules order that is being underlined by iran. you all think president trump is getting a lesson in the nature of our enemies. tell me about that. >> well, if you think about it, just a week ago, the president invited the taliban to come to camp david for a signing ceremony and they responded by carrying out a suicide bombing in which they killed an american soldier. >> dana: then bragged about it. >> and bragged about it, then
forced the cancellation of that summit. now you've got, he wanted to meet with the iranian president, was open to that, and the iranians responded by carrying out an unprovoked attack on saudi arabia. the lesson for america is not every tyrant is not as desperate for a photo op as kim jong-un. >> dana: does he need to go to congress? >> no, he does not need to go to congress. he's the commander in chief of the armed forces. if there's an attack on a u.s. alley, he has the authority to do that. look, what's happening here, the iranians are trying to pressure europe to get us to lift the sanctions and the maximum pressure. one of the developments is, as you noted in the opening of this, we're not dependent on middle eastern europe. europe is dependent on oil.
we don't trade with iran. europe does. europe has an interest in not having tensions with the united states and not having threats to the oil shipments coming out of the middle east. >> dana: it's a good point. it was france who i think it was last week or two basically was trying to push something the president didn't want. >> that's right. if you think about it, a few months ago we were talking about how iran was targeting all of the oil shipping going through the strait of hormuz. the new york times reported that in june, the trump administration lost a massive cyber attack on iran that cut off their ability to target that shipping. now they're going after the oil refinery. >> dana: always a phre aour to have you on the program. thank you. federal prosecutors seeking charges against andrew mccabe. that as we wait for president trump to award the anywaying's highest civilian honor to a baseball legend. if it starts during the break, i

>> dana: waiting for president trump to honor yankees great mariano rivera. you see everyone standing there. a top republican is predicting indictments will come any moment against andrew mccabe, former fbi deputy director. some sources claim his grand jury is refusing to hand up an indictment. to help us sort this all out, catherine herridge. >> reporter: the latest wrinkle is mccabe's defense team is taking a coordinated strategy to say whether the u.s. attorneys case is in trouble. an analysis provided to the justice department and take
direct aim at michael e. horowitz claiming his investigators, quote, sandbagged mccabe. during a 2017 interview with a tech between peter strock and li lisa page, mccabe said the team caught him off guard saying the evidence will show that mr. mccabe was questioned by the investigators under false pretenses. mr. mccabe was given no advance warning by the investigators with the inspector general, that he was going to be questioned about the text messages much less that he was going to be questioned about having anything to do with the wall street journal story. mccabe's lawyers argue he corrected the report. >> dana: thank you so much. >> reporter: you're welcome. >> dana: we have president trump presenting the medal of freedom to former yankee mariana rivera.
here we go, the president of the united states, about to award a baseball great the highest national honor. >> my wife would say, why the sand man? i said because he put the batter to sleep. right? the sand man. lot of people don't know that. the yankee fans know that. we watched it for a long time. thank you all for coming. the first lady and i are delighted to welcome you to the white house. today we present our nation's highest civilian honor, the presidential medal of freedom, to american baseball legend, maybe the greatest pitcher of all time. big argument, is he the greatest pitcher or greatest reliever. well, the reliever we want. there's a real catcher he may be the greatest pitcher in the history of baseball, mariano rivera. when you hear the stats you'll
understand why i say that. mariano, i want to congratulate you on this trrd achievement. thank you. on behalf of this whole country, thank you very much. great job. we're delighted to be joined by our vice president, mike pence and his wonderful wife karen. thank you very much, karen. thank you. along with many of the members of our very distinguished and hard working and successful cabinet. thank you all for being here. thank you, cabinet. we're all grateful to be joined by mariano's wife clara. thank you, clara. thank you, clara. his three sons, his daughter in
law. thank you very much. his long time manager, one of the great players and his manager, one of the great manager, joe torre. hi, joe. great player, too. chief operating officer of the new york yankees, lon tross. thank you, lon. good luck. go get it. we could use him in the bull pen maybe. that would be good. that would guarantee it. great season you've had. tremendous season. mariano was born the son of a fishing boat captain on the coast of panama. he learned to play baseball on the lack of the pacific with a card board glove, a bat fashioned from a tree branch and a ball made out of rock, string and tape. there wasn't a lot of money for playing baseball. he excelled at the sport.
at the age of 18 he started playing in the country's top adult league. in a critical game with his team losing badly, the coach called him over and asked mariano to do something he had never really done before. could you pitch, mariano? mo insisted that he could not. but when he took the mound, an amazing thing happened. the crowd witnessed an incredible performance. his opponents did not get a single run for the rest of the game and a legend was started. his team won in epic come back victory. big deal at that time. after that, his teammates contacted a scout and told him he had a tryout in panama city with the world's most famous baseball dynasty, the new york yankees. with barely enough money for the bus ride home, mariano set out on a journey that would define his life and inspire countless
millions around the globe. at his first tryout in worn out shoes and a borrowed glove, mariano threw nine fastballs. it was the only pitch he knew how to throw. after a few more tryouts, the yankees offered him a contract to play on their farm team, the gulf coast yankees. do you remember that, mariano? were they a good team? not bad, right? he got on an airplane and came back to america. few months later, in august 1990, mariano threw his first no hitter. that year he had an average era of .17. that doesn't mean 1. that means like 1/17 of 1. that's not a lot. how do you lose a game? i guess you score no runs, right? boy, oh boy. in 52 innings he had .17, which is unheard of, over 22 games.
soon there after, mariano married clara, which was an even more important thing for him to do. and he said it many times, you are the love of his life. you know that. you feel that, right? i hope he tells you that. they will soon celebrate their 28th wedding anniversary. congratulations. [ applause ] after five years playing in the minors, in 1955, mariano made it to the big leagues. in his second season with the yankees, mariano delivered 130 strikeouts and less than 108 innings. while facing 425 batters, he allowed only one home run. with an era of 2.09, the yankees made him a closer for the 1997 season. that's when it really started happening. that year he accidentally threw
a pitch he had never thrown before. then he tried it several more times again and again. kept working. at the last second his fastball was really an incredible thing, came the cutter. he had suddenly developed that lethal pitch which -- are people throwing that pitch today? i have never noticed. they don't have your success, i can tell you. they may be throwing it, but it doesn't work quite the same way. and many players would come to consider it the greatest pitch ever in baseball. it would break many records and many bats. in a 1999 game against the atlanta braves, his cutter snapped a big strong guy, ryan klesko. he's a big powerful guy. he broke his bat three times in one plate appearance. that has to be like a record. in 2001, mariano's heavy fearsome pitch destroyed 44 bats
in less than 81 innings. i used to say, i have never seen a guy break so many bats. it's called a heavy, heavy pitch. i asked mariano why. he really didn't know. just was the way it was, the way it happened. from god. from god. when he retired the minnesota twins presented him with what would become one of the most prized possessions,00 chair made out of their shattered bats. [ laughter ] [ applause ] in 1998, 1999 and two,000 world series championships, mariano closed out three consecutive world series victories and delivered 14 strikeouts and 7 saves. he gave up only two runs to 59 batters. you gotta remember, you're
playing against the best team. this isn't like the low level. this is the best team. he had a very unusual trait. he did better against the best teams and he did incredibly in the playoffs. when his enter music, fans went wild knowing the game was all but over. his dominance on the mound mesmerized fan, teammates and, unfortunately for them, it mesmerized the competitors. in game 7 of the 2003 american league championship, mariano entered at the top of the 9th with the score tied 5-5. he held off the boston red sox for three straight innings without giving up a single run, helping secure the series for the yankees. he was named the series mvp. not surprising. [ applause ] one of the most memorable moments of mariano's career was
the final game of the old yankee stadium, the last game in yankee stadium, when he took his place in history as the final man to pitch in that shrine to american baseball. i spent many a day in that stadium and night, and it was special. with mo on the mound for the 9th inning, not a single hitter from the baltimore orioles made it to first base. he secured yet one more yankee victory. that day the old stadium became the house that ruth built and rivera closed out. [ applause ] that's true. over the course of 19 seasons, you have to hear this to believe it. i didn't even know it. i knew he was the best but this is crazy. mariano broke the major league baseball record for the most games finished and saves made. he has the best era, earned run
average, in the past 100 years 2.21 in the regular season and even more astounding, .70, that's less than one run, in the post season when, again, you play the best teams. these are the hot teams. these are the teams that are just eating up everybody. and you had less than one run. .70. it's amazing. he made more than two times as many saves as the next best pitcher in post season. and a true clutch pitcher, he was always the best against the most talented hitters. amazingly, the 527 batters he faced in post season games hit only two home runs and scored only 13 runs against him. i think you guys should get him. get him in uniform. you're getting ready.
sign him up, lon. mariano helped lead the yankees to five world series victories with being named the world series mvp in 1999. and this year he became the first person unanimously elected to the baseball hall of fame. unanimous. not one no. [ applause ] just out of curiosity, babe ruth was not unanimously elected? what was his problem? he did pretty good, too. you mean babe was not unanimous? we well, he had some other difficulties. that's pretty good, mariano. first unanimously. we love the babe. what a swing the bay had. old cork screw swing. right? nobody could figure him out
either. throughout mariano's incredible career, he remained a humble man, guided by a deep christian faith that inspires everyone around him. as he says, he has always remembered that the lord doesn't care about wealth or fame or the number of saves somebody has. we are all children of god and the lord cares about the goodness and love in our hearts. that's all. wow. that is different than the babe, i would say. [ laughter ] i don't know if the babe ever said that. pretty sure he didn't. maybe in his last year, he said it. nearly two decades ago, mariano founded the mariano rivera foundation, which has provided hundreds of scholarships for under privileged children, along with school supplies for countless students and the currently building a learning and community center in new rochelle, new york. i can tell you what you've done
in new rochelle is incredible. incredible. after retiring from baseball, mariano an his wife built an evangelical church. today clara is its pastor. i'm gonna come listen to you sometime. i could use it. that's good. mariano was naturalized as a u.s. citizen in 2015 and, of course, he serves as co-chair of the president's council on sports fitness and nutrition. mariano rivera has made contributions to american sports, culture and society. he is the most dominant relief pitcher in the history of baseball. more than that, he has lived the american dream and shines as an example of american greatness for all to see. and i'd now like to ask the military aide to come forward and present mariano rivera with the presidential medal of freedom. before we do the actual
presentation, i'd like to have mariano just say a few words. i know most of those words are going to be addressed to his family, because i know how he feels about his family. nobody loves his family more than mariano. please, mariano. [ applause ] >> wow. amazing. thank you. first of all, i would like to say thank god for a wonderful day and to be here. mr. president, thank you for all those words and remarks. first lady, thank you. mr. pence, karen, thank you. my wife, my kids and the rest of
my family, friends. without you guys supporting, the prayers we got from mr. t, mr. joe torre, we benefitted from a lot of those prayers. [ applause ] and for me, it's an honor and privilege to receive this award, medal of freedom. all i did was try to be the best and do the best for america. one thing that i have to remark. when i came here in 1990, i came to tampa. didn't speak english. i don't speak it now. forget about 1990. the reason what i do that is
because on the team, there were lot of players that spoke spanish so i got a little comfortable and didn't try a little bit to learn the language. my second year in baseball, i was in north carolina where most of the people didn't speak any spanish, especially my teammates. i was a little younger. the guys that spoke spanish would hang out with the older guys and i was left out. i was hanging out with a guy, friend of mine, tim cooper and another guy buck. those two i asked, but an i was frustrated. times i'd go to bed crying. not because of the game, but but an i was frustrated because i couldn't speak the language. couldn't speak english. so, therefore, i told those two teammates of mine, i don't care how much you laugh.
i don't care how much you make fun of me. please, i give you permission to laugh and do that. but teach me. teach me the right way. by my surprise, they never laughed at me and they teach me. by the end of the year i was able to communicate with my manager, with my teammates, and i was the happiest man in baseball. from that, i would say my career took off and i was able to realize that i can do something for others because i knew the language. now i can relate with someone that's going through the same problems that i had been and at the same time teach them that, yes, learning english is the first thing we should do. and i did. and for that, being american, i'm so proud and honored, coming from a small town, beautiful
town, beautiful country called panama and live with my family here. they understand the language and everything we go through, i'm proud to be an american. [ applause ] for that, thank you very much. >> during his 19 seasons mariano rivera established himself as the greatest relief pitcher of all time. signed by the new york yankees in 1990, mariano rivera went on to become a 13 time all star and 5 time world series champion. he is the first player in the
history of the sport to be lected unanimously into the national baseball hall of fame. off the field, through the mariano rivera foundation, he has helped provide children in need with an education empowering them to achieve a better future. the united states proudly honors mariano rivera for being a legend of the game of baseball and for his commitment to strengthening america's community. phrauz phraeuz [ applause ] >> dana: what a very special moment in the house in the east room of the white house, where president trump presented former
yankees pitcher mariano rivera with the presidential medal of freedom. he has been a friend to the white house and the president. he sits as a co-chair on the president's council on sports fitness and nutrition. mariano rivera is following in the footsteps of other great athletes who have also received the medal from president trump including tiger woods. he gave a very moving speech about when he first came to america. he didn't speak english. he told his teammates, it's okay to make fun of me, just teach me. he said learning english was what set him on a course for great success. we are expecting to hear from the president again in about 20 minutes from now as he meets with the crown prince of bahrain. now to the campaign trail, senator elizabeth warren releasing a new plan to crack down on corruption in washington. the 2020 democrat is vowing to return power to the people if elected and reform every branch of government. i guess she wants to drain the swamp. peter doocy is live along the
banks of the petey river in south carolina. a very important reason you're there, too, peter. >> reporter: first to elizabeth warren. she's on her way to new york city where she's going to give a big speech tonight talking about setting up an office of public integrity. the idea being that there needs to be some government agency to try to root out corruption in washington, d.c. she explains the motivation behind it with this in an e-mail. one way our plan fights back, by requiring president and vice president to put their businesses into a blind trust and will ban government officials from trading individual stocks so they can't use their power to increase the value of those stocks and pad their own pockets. warren is expected to have several thousand people in new york city when she addresses this. another noisy rally. it will be a world apart from
where she was this morning, an amtrak quiet car, when she got some news about a big endorsement. watch this. >> i'm pretty sure, at least in my part, that the days of a ticket where you got two people of the same race and gender are over. i think that's good news. >> reporter: warren was in a side car on her way to washington, d.c., but mayor pete is in south carolina already talking about diversity, more than we hear from candidates in a place like iowa or new hampshire. south carolina is a place where about 60% of the democratic primary electorate are black voters.
dana. >> peter doocy on the campaign trail for us. thank you. next, congress woman ilhan omar responding to her comments about

>> dana: ilhan omar dismissing the controversy that seems to keep swirling around her. the latest one involving criticism from the family member of a 911 victim over her early comments about the terror at tax when she said, quote, some people did something. here's her response to that criticism. >> 9/11 was an attack on all americans. it was an tact on all of us. i certainly could not understand the weight of the pain that the victims of the families of 9/11 must feel. but i think it is really important for us to make sure that we are not forgetting the after math of what happened after 9/11.
>> dana: joining me now former deputy assistant secretary for public affairs at the department of homeland security. i want to have you listen to one sound byte when she tries further to explain what happened after 9/11. >> many americans found themselves now having their civil rights stripped from them. and so what i was speaking to was the fact that as a muslim, not only was i suffering as an american who was attacked on that day, but the next day i woke up as my fellow americans were now treating me as a suspect. >> dana: i think she was trying to get out there and get her point of view across. but do you think people just want controversy? she's trying to explain it that way. >> she's trying to brush it under the rug and say anything i say is not going to be taken seriously and will be used as an attack by people who don't like me and who don't like the fact
that i'm one of the first muslim women in congress. if she were to clarify her remark, that, yes, moderate muslim community has always been a positive partner in the fight against islamic extremism. we've seen it post 9/11. what she fails to acknowledge is her comments were very hurtful. they were not clear enough that what she was referring to, lumping all those people together. that was hurtful to those fam y families who lost people in 9/11. lit continue to be a controversy until she acknowledges what she said and pivots and moves on. >> dana: she feels like she has moved on. i admire anyone who will go on a sunday show. it is not easy to prepare. you are out there and exposed. she seems to be such a different person depending on who her audience is. >> i think she's really trying to navigate the likes of being a star.
a lot of it, as the president put a spotlight on her when she became a target. i remember that image of her coming back after the comments at an airport. >> dana: she had a lot of support there. >> i think the challenge for her is she, we haven't had a muslim member of congress. she's had a couple of these people. i think she's trying to express a new viewpoint. but 9/11 is one of these things that doesn't have a lot of nuance to it. if you're explaining the comments and people took them as bad, you're in a bad spot. her credibility is in jeopardy unless she can make people feel that she is representing the positive, important level of conversation in america that needs to be part of the conversation. >> dana: can you make a difference if you're not controversial? i don't know the answer to that. lauren and david, thanks for being here. we got cut a little short because of the president. thank you. america's biggest city targeting

>> dana: the new york city department of education reportedly thinking of removing chocolate milk from menus of the school. too much sugar and white milk only policies so the case of government going too far to side and what our children can eat and drink? let's bring in lauren jones, editor in chief of fox contributor, let's put up the calories, plain milk, skim, chocolate milk not that much of a difference. now this letter to remember the congress, to the mayor, please, don't do this. like kids need to drink their milk. >> leave people alone. let's let parents parent their kids, i live healthy food and i'm a big component but at the end of the day let parents
parent. the government telling what they should do and should improve education may be in new york. >> dana: i was here in the city all weekend, walking around, like chocolate milk is definitely not the city's biggest problem. let me ask you about this other topic because you are interested in this. this is whether college athletes should be allowed to be paid. i'm kind different surprised by your response. tim tebow went on tape. >> i know we live in a selfish culture where it's all about us but we are adding and piling onto that. where change is what is special about college football. the nfl, who has the most money, that is where you go. that is why people are more passionate about college sports and they are about themselves. the stadiums are bigger in college than the nfl because it's about your team, your university, where my family wanted to go. >> dana: and also one other sound valued, darryl worley oakland raiders quarterback and
another point of view, watch this. >> always thought that even before i was in college that college athletes should be paid. they put in the same sacrifice nfl does. and in some instances, they do a little bit more. why not reimburse them for the work? >> dana: this is a long time controversy. >> okay, let of those people, the kids, grew up in the same community and can't eat. my brother a former athlete had to call me for money just to eat and get along. so it is easy for tim tebow to have who i have a lot of respect for, to say he grew up with privilege and his household to be able to fend for himself. many people that come in these athletes, men and women that look like me, that is the ticket out of the community when struggling with poverty. i know he wants to look at it, as fun, but finance survival. >> dana: i'm not saying that i'm saying this because i don't have an opinion on this, but college is the benefit.
that that is you are being paid. >> they need more money than tuition, special with the star players. they make millions off of them. the highest college $50,000, you add that up. >> dana: so the question i would have, do you share this across the team or is this individual merit? >> i think it is individual merit. that is the problem with society, everybody gets a trophy, and if you are not good enough -- that's how society works. the players won't even make it professional or injured before they get professional. my brother had a spine injury and we thought he was going to the nfl, but guess what the spine injury ended his career and no money to show for it. >> dana: across the board for all divisions? i'm assuming if your division i -- >> i think it should be individual based on the player. if your home hold value and you bring more money to the network or you to your team, you should be compensated for it. >> dana: i would buy your jersey if you had one.
>> i would buy your jersey too. >> dana: i will have to get you an extra extra-large. >> you are having dinner tonight. >> dana: i'm stressed about it. thanks for joining us, everybody, i'm dana perino. here is shep. >> shepard: a fox, we are waiting for president trump to speak in this hour, u.s. officials say kaylee mcghee stomach iran is responsible for the attack sending global markets and the red and raising concerns that america could get involved in the confrontation in the middle east. it happened the largest oil processing facility. the key oil field disrupting more than 5% of the worlds we will supply. the rebels in yemen are saying they are behind the attacks. but u.s. officials released satellite photos that show the damage. the official say attackers used cruise missiles and drones fired from r
