3:01 am
primaries? >> of course, right? >> or the party itself, ainsley. >> that's a problem. the media has created a perception that the voters will decide the nomination. the political parties choose their nominee, not the general public, contrary to popular belief? really, curly? >> that's his name. >> nickname. >> and america got a whole lot sexier. fabio, no last name needed is now a u.s. citizen. and wait till you see the rest of his pictures. it's fantastic. first time i've seen him on with his shirt in a long time. hey, morning, especially fabio the american are better with friends. ♪ ♪

3:03 am
walk to work? on a day like today, with bagpipers for three hours -- not so much. >> doesn't matter what neighborhood you live in new york city, there's always a pub and a huge crowd. >> speaking of huge crowds, where -- new york city, the streets of new york city hosted the biggest st. patrick's day parade in the world. where was the very first st. patrick's day parade? >> in america, you mean or ever? >> i think boston. >> he got it right. >> good job. >> we do have a trivia contest coming up. we're going to see how much we know. >> in 50 minutes we're going straight to the pub with an whiskey expert. >> it's going to be a great day. wear some green, please do. meanwhile, let's talk a little bit about the world of politics. first up, yesterday, donald trump made the observation that if he is a few votes short of clinching the nomination this summer in cleveland, the people
3:04 am
who are supporters would go crazy. and he's right. at one point, he used the "r" word. he said they could riot. i think it's a figure of speech, nonetheless mainstream media, well they rioted on tv -- watch. >> donald trump fresh off major victories overnight now warning of riots if the republicans try to stop him at a contested convention. >> the words coming with these images still fresh in americans' minds. anger and violence at rallies. today, trump warned bad things would happen if they didn't get the gop nomination. >> the gop front-runner issued this warning if he doesn't get the nomination. >> like i heard them say there's going to be hell to pay. it's unfortunate because we're coming up in a weekend in which there was something cancelled, ryan and ainsley. >> right. >> i'll tell you something if
3:05 am
they take it away from donald trump and he's running away with it and he didn't have 1,237, there will be a problem. >> he's just saying people are just angry. you have to remember, there are four people in this race, or there were, agency of two days ago at the last election. you're bound -- you're bound not to get the number that you need. going to whittle it down. they're not talking about, mainstream media is not talk about this radical group that has formed, traveled across the country called democracy spring. the mainstream media is not talking about that. >> yeah, it's going to kick off on april 2nd, the day after april fools' day, in philly on the steps of i think independence hall or right there next to the liberty bell. and then they're going to march down over ten days to washington, d.c. and they are on line. and they're saying hey, do you want to be part of this. by the way, you're going to get
3:06 am
arrested so just know that going in. because what they're planning is a sit-in on steps of the capitol. they're apparently going to do something to get arrested. here's the thing, they want to stop the corruption in congress so they want congress to think about that. let's think about this, they're going to congress to say, hey, congress, stop doing what you're doing. it looks to me this is a great opportunity to wind up with a police record and spending a couple days just traveling the country, walking with the guys. >> bottom line is, both conventions are going to have a lot of interest and intrigue. but having seen this speech before, with donald trump's speech on immigration. donald trump makes a comment about what we're doing at the border. what we're doing with, you know, all the different issues. then we go two or three days about what he thinks. and guess what, it swamps all his opponents and steals the
3:07 am
thunder. >> he is brilliant and generating free media. in fact, one of the networks. one of the other cable networks was talking about, do you think you've given him too much publicity. and they said, no. explain why. because he say news machine. he makes up -- you know, so many headlines are generated by the guy. but the riot comment on the heels of the closure of the rally in chicago, you know, the thing that people aren't talking about, it wasn't the trump supporters who are the trouble makers. it was the outside agitators who came in and caused all the problems. >> well, and donald trump keeps saying that republican leaders need to stand up an say we need to unite as a party. and governor rick scott, governor of florida, he was on fox and said the party needs to unite. we need to quit this fighting. >> i'm going to talk to everybody i can, just like i talk to my daughters today, i'm going to say, let's think about what we want. we need to win in november. we need to think about our jobs.
3:08 am
we need to think about our future. the only way we're going to do this if we coalesce now, quit this fighting. pick donald trump, and listen to the voters and get behind him. i'm going to go out there and help coalesce republican voters to win in november. >> that intense stare. he's coming up in a little while. governor rick scott, no one thought he had a chance, he's not only won four years as governor of florida. he won another four years but not endorsed before the primary, but endorsed after the primary. >> given the fact there are so many trump supporters who think the rnc is going to steal the election, nomination from donald trump. what happens, this guy from south dakota who is an rnc member whose name is curley hogland. >> not the curley from harlem
3:09 am
globetrotters. that's the only curly i know. >> focus. >> this guy, he said forget about what you're seeing on television. it's really not the people who pick the nominee, it's us who pick the delegates. here he is on "squawk because." >> that's the problem, the media has created the perception that the voters will decide the nomination. political parties choose the nominee. >> technically that is true, not directly bit voters, the voters go to their caucus or primary, and ultimately, they proportionately in many states figure out who the delegates are going to vote for. >> he is saying the media has created a perception that the voters decide. it's the media. >> i do believe you, people are online voting. >> my vote. you get to vote.
3:10 am
>> remember in iowa, they counted the votes? how dare they! and they actually ranked the winners and gave them percentages. what were we we thinking? >> this is exactly why people love donald trump. they're anti-establishment. they're saying we know what's best four and your family. the people are finally saying, no, you do not. >> if you don't meet the threshold, one delegate over the majority, it doesn't go to that process. >> right, the rule, the rules. you have to go with the process. >> if one person doesn't is wind up with one, two, three, seven -- are there going to be riots? >> no. >> the cleveland police station apparently ready for riots. they have apparently obtained two sets of riot gear. i have a feeling it wouldn't be the people inside the convention hall doing the rioting. i think it will be the outside agitators who suddenly as we heard the mobilizing against the
3:11 am
republicans. >> let's get to heather. >> you're the hardest working woman. you were working on sean's show last night and now on "fox & friends first." >> happy st. patrick's day. i do have serious news to start out with a fox news alert. isis terrorists taking their reign of terror to the skies claiming credit for shooting down an iraqi military jet. the iraqi military saying the jet crashed due to technical problems. this comes as a public warning that isis is actively trying to obtain software to wage cyberattacks. no evidence that isis can hack into the u.s., but a worry that they could do that. senate republicans doubling down on their promise not to consider anyone for antonin scalia's replacement until after the 2016 election.
3:12 am
>> we're following the biden rule. the american people should understand if the shoe was on the other foot this is a republican president submitting the nominee in the middle of a presidential election. there are no circumstances under which the nominee would be confirmed. >> despite the opposition, garland will meet today in washington. america just got a whole lot sexier. fabio is now a u.s. citizen. i love hearing that. the italian-born model just taking the oath of allegiance in california, now becoming a naturalized american citizen. fabio says it was one of the happiest days of his life and that the united states is the greatest country on earth. amen to that. fab fabio, we're happy to have you. >> great story. >> the cover of the romance novels in the '80s and '90s. >> i don't even think he wrote
3:13 am
those novels. he was just on the cover. >> i talked to the young ones downstairs, they're like, who's fabio. he's never allowed to cut hair. >> do you think we don't recognize who fabio is? >> good morning, this is fabio and you're watching "fox & friends." meanwhile, donald trump dominating the delegate count despite being disliked by republican party leaders, in many cases. so how did he get past the establishment? our next guest has a pretty good idea. then, a baseball slugger retires because the team bans his son from the clubhouse. is that fair or foul? but first -- >> more from the new york metro pipe band on this st. paddy's day. 34 outside on the plaza. sales event is on.

3:18 am
trump's success with the plan it seems to put together a plot on how to stop him from becoming the nominee. but how does trump stop getting past the establishment and what happens next? let's ask georgetown university professor hans noel. the co-author of the book you just saw. hans, can trump be stopped? should he be stopped? >> well, it's getting to be increasingly hard to stop him. i think republican leaders have two strategies. one is to deny him the actual nomination by having a contested convention, that only happens if he doesn't get an outright majority of delegates which actually could happen. and if that happens, and if they do try to deny him the nomination at the convention, you have to convince the american people it's okay that the party makes it at the convention with the matter who didn't get enough vote which is is a tough sale. >> if you look at it as the
3:19 am
party, the republican party or speaking out loud and then the republican party establishment pushing back on all levers. who wins? >> well it's a tricky thing. i mean, the party establishment has the advantage of knowing how the rules work and how things play out. it's also important to know while trump has got, you know, the largest number of delegates and he's getting most of the votes, he's won like 37% of primary votes in republican contests so far. so, while a lot of people have spoken in favor of trump, a lot have also spoken against trump. and the real problem is you have a fractured party that some like trump. some like a more conservative candidate from one of the more sort of party regular candidates. and the party leaders are in a position trying to figure out which of those options is the best one for the party. >> and real quick, in '76, they pushed back against reagan to allow ford to get the nomination, correct. there was party collusion? >> that's right, there's party collusion to some degree in

succeed this senate because he believes that his successor, whoever it is, will choose the person to fit that role, and that choice will be far to the left of judge garland. >> just the fact you said he doesn't even want this guy on the court. because the next person won't just pick the next justice could pick two or three or four. >> let's put it this way, if judge garland is confirmed, and i don't think he will be. his reputation, his personal history, will all be beaten up, rolled over, devoured for barack obama's political desires to be beat up on mitch mcconnell and the republicans on the senate. what else suffers? the court. like that tie steve. >> where's that leprechaun that was here a few years ago.

4:06 am
primary back in 2010. all the establishment -- i was the business person, the outsider. all the establishment told me to get out of the race. we would not win. we would hurt our chance to win later. and what happened? we won. we had big majorities in the house and senate. we have turned our state around. we have had tough primaries. the voters have picked donald trump, it's time to coalesce behind trump because the issue is we have to win in november. we cannot have four more years of barack obama. need somebody who's going to focus on jobs. fixing the federal government and i believe donald trump will do it. >> okay. but didn't you believe that before florida? >> what i want to do, i wanted to let the voters decide. i trust the voters. did not like the party leaders telling me to at get of the race or telling me i shouldn't be in the race. i let the voters decide. that's why i waited until after the primary in florida and donald trump had a big win in
4:07 am
florida and a big win on tuesday. we have had a tough primary season, two favorites from florida had lost. a lot of my friends as governors have not made it. it's time to coalesce behind donald trump so we don't have hillary clinton in november. we can't have the republican on republican fighting. i want jobs. i know donald trump can focus on jobs like i have done down here and turn this economy around. >> i think it's smart you didn't endorse anyone. you had jeb bush and marco rubio and i think you made a wise choice by not endorsing anyone because it could have turned off the other two or the front-runner. what do you make of the media? the media is up in arms over trump's comments about a contested convention. he said if we don't have the 1,237 going into the convention we'll have a contested convention. and the gop -- >> riots. >> gop voters have made their choice, they pick med, he says, we'll have riots as a result. what do you make of that? >> well, clearly, the voters are frustrated with party leaders.
4:08 am
they don't trust party leaders right now. so trump is either going to end up with a maertd or -- end up with a majority or close to it. if he doesn't get the nomination, i think that the voters are going to be pretty frustrated and i think it will impact our ability to win in november. my focus is we've got to win in november. it's time to coalesce behind donald. we have to have somebody who will focus on jobs, downsizing the size of the federal government. all of these things are important to us. >> do you think that donald trump was suggesting, you know, if i don't get it, he was inciting violence? >> oh, you can ask donald trump what he meant. >> the way you heard it. how did you hear it? >> people are frustrated. i heard it that people would be very frustrated. i think that -- i think that people will be very frustrated. they don't want party leadership picking the winner. that's -- you know, i won in 2010, the party leaders wanted to pick somebody else. people want the voters, the voters had clearly chosen donald trump.

4:10 am
should be choosing the nominees. that's exactly what they wanted to do to me. the party's leadership asked me to get out of the race a bunch of times. they -- the voters should be choosing this. they have clearly chosen donald trump and when want to win in november. we've got to coalesce now. we can't have this republican on republican infighting for four more months. >> how did their establishment react to you endorsing donald trump? >> i haven't gotten any phone calls, anybody complaining. i think i did the right thing by waiting. let the voters of florida decide. look, we have had a very contested brie mare -- primary, a lot of great candidates. time to coalesce. >> ultimately, you know, florida is one of those wonderful states with people of all political persuasions. the big question is as the chief executive of florida, in the general election could donald trump who you endorsed beat hillary clinton? >> oh, i think he'd clearly beat hillary clinton. we don't want four more years of barack obama.
4:11 am
the -- they have seen -- >> you know how -- >> you're a business person, you know barack obama won twice. >> if you look -- they have seen that a business person outside kerr turn this state around. i think they're very open to a business person outsider turning our federal government around. so i think donald trump will have a big win in november in florida. >> what happened to marco rubio in the big picture? he only won his county? >> i think he worked really hard. but donald trump has done a great job of getting his message out. this issue this year is jobs just like my race in 2010 and 2014. it is all about jobs. people are ready for a big change in government. >> all right. >> what's the biggest adjustm t adjustment, governor, as you go from business person to politician? you did it. >> i think -- he's done a lot, you do a lot more media. and you have to work with -- in his case, you have to work with congress, in my case working with the legislature. i never had that experience. but if you have been successful in business you know how to build relationships and get

4:18 am

4:19 am
to spend money on this project. $36 million just since 2010 for a dinosaur themed bus line with heated sidewalks and, you know, dinosaurs on the side of the bus. it's just a lot of wasted money. >> all right. so let's look at the match-ups. this is a very good mix this year. sadly. as an american. but the first round, today, march 17th, through the 25th, we'll look at that match-up and the second round will be the 28th to the april 1st. see what is being wasted there. the third and fourth round, april 4th to the 7th. then an ultimate winner april 7th. hopefully they'll be shamed into not wasting our money. in the big picture, this is about getting our budget in line and it's about entitlements, right? >> it is. and, you know, if you're spending money like this you're probably wasting its on other things as well. but there are other big, big ticket items that we're spending
4:20 am
money on. a lot of farm subsidy money we need to pull back. obviously, unless you're talking about entitlement spending you're not serious about ed a dreading our debt -- addressing the debt and deficit. >> yesterday, you came forward as a republican on the judiciary committee and said, i am for taking a look and listening to merrick garland. do you want to clarify that? >> yes. i do want to clarify that. i think that republicans are doing the right thing, we're fully justified in saying let's wait until after the election. to actually nominate somebody or approve the president's nomination. and i said yesterday that if republicans are not successful in the november election, i hope we are, but if we're not, then we ought to look at this nomination in a lame duck session in november. i would rather have a less liberal nominee like merrick garland than a nominee that hillary clinton if she were president would put forward. >> right.

former director of the cia and the nsa and the author of a brand-new book "pointing to the edge" general michael hayden. so jimmy fallon was talking politics. which of the political candidates running for president right now would be best to take on the threats facing america? >> of all the folks standing my personal view right now, john kasich. he's not oversimplied if the problem. he understands they're complicated, he hasn't resorted to bumper stickers. he has a pretty strong resume. executive in ohio of course. but also when he was in the congress he was on the armed services committee. >> right. >> and the fact this he was born in pittsburgh does not influence my judgment. >> how convenient. >> he's a very serious man. and he got good marks when he was on the committees. he did his homework. >> so yesterday donald trump was asked that very question. who are you talking to on foreign policy and he says -- i
4:34 am
think he was kidding. he talks to himself. >> i don't think he was kidding. >> okay. would you answer his call? i know a lot of other people have said, i'm open to helping out any way i can? >> certainly if someone had been elected president of the united states and asked someone like me can you offer me your views? >> not during the election process? >> duty would require you to do it. now you're helping a person who is going to be president. helping someone now is actually helping someone to be president. that's a different decision, brian. >> understood. >> donald trump released an ad on national security going after hillary clinton. i want to play this ad for you and get your reaction. >> okay. ♪ [ barking ] [ laughter ] >> okay. >> general? >> speaking of oversimplifying
4:35 am
complex international situations -- >> yeah. >> it's a funny ad. >> it's a funny ad. >> did you see the real reality in it? i know you know this. the next person has got to have steel in their spine willing to take on russia and isis. >> look, i get i. you and i have talked about in a variety of forums, on your on your radio show, so on. we need to be tougher. we need to be taking a harder line, i get that. so that broad instinct i would support, but oversimplifying it, going beyond the edge is not the right answer. >> what about hillary saying no one died in libya? you have to have your facts, right? >> we have that sound bite. watch this. >> we have got to continue to support the libyan people to give them a chance because otherwise, you see what's happened in syria with the consequences of millions of people flooding out of syria. with more than 250,000 people killed, with terrorist groups like isis taking up almost huge
4:36 am
swathes of territory as big as some of the states in that area. yes, i mean, libya was a different kind of calculation. and we didn't lose a single person. >> what do you think she was talking about there? >> yeah, she's talking about the first effort. the main effort of the armed forces overthrowing gadhafi. i could sense -- immediately after she said that, she wanted a do-over for not recognizing that we did lose people. look, we have had three interventions or noninterventions, iraq which was all in. libya which was in and out. and syria, we're not going there at all and they all turned out bad. this is complicated stuff. you can't answer it with just simple sound bites. >> but to be proud of the syrian effort which the president said he was in the huge story about his foreign policy is astounding to me. >> let me say something harsh, okay? brian, the people responsible for the tragedy that is syria or
4:37 am
bashar al assad and al bag a did, the person who could minimize the suffering is barack obama. >> talk about what's going on around the world and isis, isis has made it clear they want to possess destructive capabilities regarding our cyber stuff. that's terrifying. >> it is. i saw john carlin in the department of justice who said that's a clear and present danger. i agree with john. john is a good guy. i can't explain to you though why it hasn't happened yet. these guys are cyber smart. they use the web for everything. but they have not yet tried to conduct a destructive cyber attack and i can't explain it. >> speaking of cyber, do you think foreign governments got into hillary clinton's server? >> steve, the standard answer i would give you, you know, lacking evidence and i haven't done forensics, i would lose respect for dozens of foreign intelligence services if they are not already thumbing through
4:38 am
the e-mails. >> wow. that's incredible. the other story that came out, she asked for the blackberry -- to get secured access for her blackberry and got turned down and then weeks later she has the server online. >> one is, why did my old agency not help be more forth coming in giving a more secure device? i don't know the facts so i won't judge it. but it reveals that the secretary was concerned and aware of the danger of using her vanilla blackberry for -- >> yeah. >> for this kind of work. so that -- you know, that's fairly dark. >> what is your advice for the person who does win the presidency when they're stacking their cabinet, with the best people? >> stack your cabinet with the best people. go for talent. you know? >> not money and not who's endorsed you and -- >> yeah. you know, there's been a broad
4:39 am
pattern to the american history that presidents have two terms. actually, they have very strong cabinets in the second term because if they're done paying their debts and just going after talent. >> sure. >> we need to do that in the first terms. >> listen, this is a very talented person who by the way on the st. patrick's day is celebrating a birthday. his birthday is st. patrick's day. he's going to stick around because this is going to be -- you will be the first former director of the cia who has done "cooking with friends." >> there you go. >> happy birthday. >> and your book is a must read, "new york times" best seller. you have to stick around for another hour and we have free whiskey. >> okay. >> i'm not telling you you have to. >> heather has some headlines. >> i do. good morning. happy birthday, general. new overnight, this is the last thing you want to see. just moments before your flight takes off a firefighter storming on board your plane. an e-cigarette ignited inside a passenger's carry on bag and it sent smoke through the cabin and forced a delay of this delta

4:42 am
severe weather in the form of tornadoes or damaging winds. that's something to watch out for out there. also parts of new england could be seeing some strong storms that could produce some severe weather out there. so that's something else to watch out for. along the gulf coast, it will remain unsettled. several inches of rainfall is possible. everyone remembers the flooding that still is ongoing across parts of texas and louisiana. those areas could be seeing some additional rainfall unfortunately with that storm system. now let's head back inside. >> all right. maria, are wearing any green? >> i am. >> underneath -- >> i can't wear the actual green because of the green screen in the weather center. so this is as close as i can get without keying out. >> i'll come out there. i have a hat for you. you can wear -- >> perfect. >> how big is the st. patrick's day parade in anythinicaragua? >> not big at all. >> good news, no traffic. meanwhile, straight ahead, then there were three. now that marco rubio is out of

the republican race, what happens to his delegates? peter johnson jr. was tasked with that question. i hope he has an answer. it's not just st. patrick's day, but it's st. baldrick's day. we are shaving heads on the plaza to raise money for a very good cause. >> take a look at them, folks, they're going bald. a heart attack doesn't care if you run everyday, or if you're young or old. no matter who you are a heart attack can happen without warning. if you've had a heart attack, a bayer aspirin regimen can help prevent another one. be sure to talk to your doctor before you begin an aspirin regimen. bayer aspirin.

4:45 am of many pieces in my life. so when my asthma symptoms kept coming back on my long-term control medicine, i talked to my doctor and found a missing piece in my asthma treatment. once-daily breo prevents asthma symptoms. breo is for adults with asthma not well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. breo won't replace a rescue inhaler for sudden breathing problems. breo opens up airways to help improve breathing for a full 24 hours.
4:46 am
breo contains a type of medicine that increases the risk of death from asthma problems and may increase the risk of hospitalization in children and adolescents. breo is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on a long-term asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. once your asthma is well controlled, your doctor will decide if you can stop breo and prescribe a different asthma control medicine, like an inhaled corticosteroid. do not take breo more than prescribed. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. ask your doctor if 24-hour breo could be a missing piece for you. see if you're eligible for 12 months free at and then there were three. after a tough tuesday night, marco rubio suspends his campaign leaving behind 169 delegates. so the question is what happens to all those delegates as trump and cruz and kasich continue to the convention?
4:47 am
peter johnson jr. is going to break it all down. >> good morning. this an interesting stuff. it can be confusing, but if it's simple, if we can talk about the three categories. so what happens to the delegates of the candidate who drops out of the race? well, the short answer is it varies by state. there are three types of delegates. the bound, those that must stay loyal at the convention. the unbound, so called free agents. then the hybrid delegates. they're bound on the first ballot. sometimes the second. we were talking about this before -- >> the state of tennessee is bound for two rounds. >> yes, very interesting. you were telling me that fact. so there's three different types of delegates so it's -- >> every state is different. >> it's a mix. state driven, absolutely. >> what will happen to rubio's delegates? he dropped of of the race, he has 169. >> 134 are bound and 35 are unbound. there's a good amount that are -- >> why is that? >> that's state driven as well.
4:48 am
based upon the states that he won delegates in. now, senator ted cruz believes through his agents that a lot of those people will go to him. they have a higher calculation. i saw one quote where his campaign manager said, well, we think there's 90 unbound delegates they would like to grab instead of trump or john kasich getting them, they said we'll get them. so that's going to be a fight. >> let me ask you another question. how do other campaigns capture the unbound delegates? >> this becomes a wooing session, a dating session politically. the competitors, they gun for these unbound delegates. their collection of party activist, party leaders, local political leaders so they target them and say, go with our guys. >> is there a phone ringing off the hook? >> there is. there is a shadow election going
4:49 am
on now because the delegates have to be selected in each state. so party loyalists and establishment people will say, we want to get someone that will jump to our candidate. after a first ballot. trump people are saying, let's put our people in there as delegates in those states so they stay bound as long as they can. >> we will see. >> very interesting stuff. >> peter johnson jr. breaking this all down for us. it's confusing. we're glad you're here. thank you. coming up next, we are shaving heads out on the plaza to raise money for an awesome cause. will brian get a buzz cut? what do you think? ♪ huh.

5:08 am
mainstream media heard him say riot, they went crazy because it sounds like he's inciting violence. >> donald trump fresh off major victories overnight now warning of riots if the republicans try to stop him at a contested convention. >> trump's words coming with these images fresh in american's minds. anger and violence. >> today, trump warned bad things would happen if he doesn't get the nomination. the gop front-runner issued this menacing prediction if he doesn't get the nomination at a contested convention. >> so there you go. i think they went a little extreme with it. i think it's an expression. listen, if donald trump continues on his way, 19 contests left, and he goes in just shy of 1,237, there's going to be people who are going to be upset, but not necessarily going to be violent. >> he's saying people will be upset. the mainstream media is not reporting the other side of the
5:09 am
story, and this is the radical groups that are inciting riots and they don't like donald trump and they're protesting against him. they're called democracy spring, this one particular group -- they're threatening the drama in washington, the largest civil disobedience action against the country. >> they're encouraging people to sign up and go to washington and get arrested. what they're doing is they're going to congress, to ask congress to stop being corrupt. good luck with that. what they want is they want the billionaires no longer involved in politics. and the irony is, this outfit in part is funded by george soros,, which of course he is a billionaire. which is funny. >> move on contributed $200,000 to governor kasich's super pac. he took the money. he needs all he can get. when you go through the primary process and you shut up the votes at caucus and you gave some of your time, did you know your vote didn't matter?
5:10 am
it's not about you, who is supporting your own party, it's the higher-ups? well, that's according to curly haugland. listen to him on another network. >> that's a problem that the media has created the perception that the voters will decide the nomination. political parties choose their nominee, not the general public. contrary to popular belief. >> media creates the perception you as a voter can choose who's the next president. >> there's not true, he says. technically he's right because in the nominating conventions it is -- they are the delegates who do the picking but this adds to the mind set that people out there who are involved in the political process this time around feel like the party elites are taking their voice away. >> this is why people like trump. he said i'm not part of the establishment. your vote really matters. you know what's best for your family. these guys in washington, they
5:11 am
do not. >> well, governor rick scott of florida yesterday endorsed donald trump. he talked about this topic earlier on our show. >> they don't want party leadership picking the winner. that's -- you know, i won in 2010 the party leaders wanted to pick somebody else. they had their hand picked candidate. the voters had clearly chosen donald trump. they want somebody to change the status quo. if we go to the convention and he doesn't get the nomination, i think that -- i think the voters are going to be pretty frustrate and i think it will impact our ability to win in november. >> by the way it's not donald trump's yet. there are 19 contests left. senator ted cruz said i can get the amountaller field and gover kasich, he could run strong. >> he wants a contested -- >> he wants a contested convention. >> we can't act like it's fait accompli yet. >> in "the washington post" it questions who is trying to be a delegate. right now as people go to vote,
5:12 am
they're going to eventually send actual people to the conventions this summer, right? so who are those people? well, as it turns out, you know, on the first ballot you were talking with peter johnson jr. about it, on the first ballot they are obligated, you know, to vote for the people that were selected during their primaries or caucuses. but in the second round, then essentially these delegates could be sleeper cells let's say for somebody else. let's say -- >> absolutely. >> your state -- let's say you're from florida. all 99 of those delegates are going for donald trump on the first round. but it all depends on the state's bylaws and how things work. be few your state doesn't have rules on who you have to vote for in the second thing, then the other candidates are doing some talking to you about how about -- if there's another fight, or something like that, you vote for me? >> if you're in the state of tennessee, you have to stick with that candidate, the second round state of south carolina, the first round has to be the

buying a home can be a risky investment if you don't do your homework or as lawyers are refer to it and other people refer to it as due diligence. what is that? and what do you need to know about it? let's talk to fox news legal analyst bob massi, the host of "the property man." due diligence is homework. >> it is basically taking the time to know what you're buying, to understand the issues of what you're buying and as a seller to let the buyer know everything that's happened to the house so there's total disclosure. >> when you talk about the due diligence, you have to know not only about the house, but about the neighborhood, what are my taxes? any sort of fee, stuff like that. bob, what's the most common mistake when its comes to doing your homework? >> through my eyes, steve, what bothers in alot of time i see some of -- what bothers me a lot
5:19 am
of the time is the contract is too short of a time for the type of home you're going to buy. particularly if you are a first-time buyer. sometimes i see three day due diligence, five day due diligence. if you're buying a $1 million home you should have more time than that in my opinion. regardless, particularly if you're a first time buyer, understand what you're buying, understand that product that you're buying. and take the time to learn about it. which is why a realtor is very important. a competent realtor is important in your process. >> you need somebody on your side. so you're talking about time. if for the most part, can you negotiate more time? >> sure. yeah, you can always negotiate more time. depending upon what you may find. sometimes when i write up contracts, i put in certain conditions as to why it should continue. but the other thing, steve, is not only is it about the product you're buying, but as you stated earlier it's about what's going on around you. is there any future development?
5:20 am
have you looked at the master plan? have you checked the crime rate in the area, the neighborhood. any construction defect in the development where you live? these are things that -- sometimes what happens is buyers get caught in just the product. they're so excited. >> they love the house. >> about buying the home, they don't go outside the box. and again, that's where i believe a competent realtor needs to step in. i'm sure they do, hopefully, to sort of broaden their understanding of what they're buying and where they're buying. >> well said. property man, thank you very much, for joining us today on a st. paddy's day. where's your green by the way? >> it's ger abaldy day. >> only in vegas. thank you. you know about the water problems in flint, michigan, and it's not happening only there. it's happening at many schools. a new report will stun you. pete hegseth is along the parade route with some special guests.

5:27 am
close to our hearts, our irish heritage and traditions which we commemorate every year on st. patrick's day. >> it's civil war, world war i, world war ii, 9/11, iraq. the unit has been involved in all those. but to specifically lead the st. patrick's day parade, why, why did they originally lead the parade? >> to serve as the military escort for the parade. basically protect the parade from nativist attacks. there was a lot of prejudice back in the 1900s and even though it's gone away we still lead the parade for 165 years straight. >> the traditions of the 69th are fantastic. it started in the commander's office at 6:00 in the morning, drinking irish whiskey and today, mass with cardinal dolan and then they'll be leading the parade down fifth avenue. a tradition that all americans
5:28 am
should cherish. thank you for joining us morning, sergeants. we'll keep following the 69th. >> great job. that's guy to have as a correspondent. >> to hear about tradition, it turns out there was friction between the irish who were resentful of the italians who were coming to new york city and taking the low-wage jobs from the irish. yet, i'm irish and italian. i don't feel that inner friction until i read that story. >> oh, wow. >> how about your house? >> it's a lot of friction. >> it's amazing how far we have come and amazing how far pete has come. one minute he's fighting, and the other he's covering this parade. >> you have to say good-bye to the killer whale shows that are becoming history. the ceo of seaworld will join us live. >> what will they do instead? then a baseball slugger walks away from the game because his team didn't want his son in the dugout every day. your e-mails are pouring in on this one. i've been claritin clear for 14 days.

5:38 am
and then thirdly, we're announcing the new partnership with the humane society of the united states. we have been -- imagine that, we have been adversaries for 20 years. and instead of fighting each other, we're going to work together to save animals in the wild and to amplify that, $50 million we're investing over five years to be the world's largest rescue organization. we rescue seven animal as day. >> why are you doing this now? >> it's a good question. because society has shifted and i think as i have come in as the new ceo, more and more people are becoming uncomfortable with these very large, majestic images under human care. a lot of factors have influenced that. i just felt we needed to move forward. the new millennial generation they love animals, they love conservation. that's what we're about. seaworld is about that. people need to know that. >> so the closest you're ever going to get animals like this and to whales specifically. but wayne, in the big picture,
5:39 am
you have not gotten a whale for decades, right? i mean, these are whales who are breeding in -- >> no, seaworld stopped taking them from the wild some time ago so they have been added through captive breeding. i think it says we'll stop the captive breeding and sunset this aspect of what seaworld is doing. it was blocking people from seeing the larger enterprise. there was such a controversy over the keeping of the animals. you know, these are long lived animals, they live in family groups. they swim for tens of miles a day. after "black fish" people questioned if that was appropriate. people fall on both sides of that, but no question that this was blocking a larger consideration. >> and joel, the way you set it up, the two of you have been adversaries for a while. and so for you to both be on the couch today that says a lot about the steps that seaworld is taking. >> i think it's important that what's really suffering is animals in the wild. our company is all about
5:40 am
communicating to people -- we have 20 million guests a year. 20,000 employees. if we teach them about the plight of animals in the world, we can be an army to help them, which we can be, then why not join forces? we both love animals. >> i think it's amazing you're doing this. let's be honest, seaworld is still a business and families are going to see shamu. what are you doing to bring in the families and replace shamu? >> shamu is one of the reasons they come to seaworld. however, first of all, they'll be there for a long, long time. really decades and with a new orca encounter, families can see them. that gives us a long time to introduce new ideas and secondly, what we're doing differently, we're interjecting our great animal care and our story into rides and attractions like mako. we're introducing the mako and
5:41 am
we're putting in a message about sharks going extinct. they cut off the fins and they throw them in the water and they guy a horrible death. the guests can donate to the cause. so here's a ride, it's fun for families but they still learn to help animals in the wild. that's what need to be about. >> wayne, is this what you want to get across, are you happy about this? >> yes, i'm happy. we marry our business and our commerce with our values. we're supposed to have our values infused in everything we do. and, you know, a year ago ringling announced that it's not going to be using elephants in its traveling acts. in the last six months we have had 75 announcements, mcdonald's, cracker barrel, kroger, the biggest names in food retail saying they'll source their eggs from farming operations that don't confine the hens. we're seeing across different sectors of the economy more concerns for animal welfare. seaworld has stepped forward in

5:48 am
court nomination must be put off until after the election campaign is over. that is what is fair to the nominee. and it's the process. >> reporter: in his rose garden address yesterday, president obama argued it would be unprecedented for the senate to not even hold a hearing for merrick. and last night on "special report" josh earnest said the entire purpose of the hearings is for the republicans to raise any questions they have about merrick. >> what the republicans are vowing to do in their treatment of chief judge garland is totally unfair. >> reporter: we are seeing a bit of a change in the tone of several republicans though including a judiciary chairman, chuck grassley, who now says they would be willing to meet with merrick. after the senate returns from the two week break. they say that's no indication they're changing their stance, they will not hold hearings for him as a nominee. back to you all in new york.
