3:01 am
be changed before the convention? and kelly ripa roaring mad. the host is furious at michael strahan's move saying she was totally blindsided when the big defensive lineman decided to go to "good morning america." some are calling it the ultimate betrayal. we'll discuss that because we chose to. it was in the rundown. and we want to. because mornings are better with friends. ♪ you may not care there's a royal blizzard double-decker bus outside. >> oh, i do. >> i do, too. the queen of england would because she's 90 years old. later today she'll be riding that bus through downtown new york city. >> we brought in dairy queen to celebrate the queen. happy birthday. >> absolutely.
3:02 am
they have created a blizzard fit for a queen. in fact, they will make it available for her over in england. >> take that, good humor people. >> game on! by the way, do we know if the queen watches "fox & friends." >> i think she does. doesn't everyone? >> hello to the queen. we know she's watching. >> here's my wave. >> the carol burnett thing? hey, queen, this is for you. >> i think you should bow. >> hey, queen, is that what they say? >> no. >> they don't say "hey queen." they say, "your royal majesty." >> remember pat from "saturday night live"? we weren't sure if pat was a man or a woman? we never -- >> i'm sure your mom named your

queeny dog queen and she was a she. anyway, we're going outside to get ice cream. >> speaking of royalty, what about news royalty? >> good morning. it is lovely in here. >> you look terrific. all right, good morning, everybody, hope you're off to a good day. i have sad news coming out of hollywood this morning. stunning news overnight from the wrestling world. chyna, one of the most famous wrestlers in the '90s has now died. she was 46 years old. her real name was jonie lauer. she was found dead in her home by a childhood friend. she did have a history of drug problems and also arrests. police say that foul play is not suspected. chyna became an actress after her wrestling career ended. then a fox news alert out of miami, she was kidnapped and shoved into the trunk of a car. and this morning police say they shot and killed the guy they believe was responsible.
3:04 am
it all started when the suspect grabbed the woman, threw her in the trunk of his car, he later abandoned that car. the woman reportedly called cops from inside the trunk. officers tracked the guy through the woods and that's when the suspect confronted officers with a shotgun before being shot. now the woman luckily was not hurt. cops not yet saying if the two knew one another but we'll keep you posted on that. and some extreme weather once again in houston. and there is now a terrifying new concern to tell you about this morning. two dams in that area are now at risk of failing as that historic flooding claims its eighth victim. thousands of terrified residents rescued from their own homes, many of them remain under water this morning. and that rain is not letting up just yet. damage there is now estimated at upwards of $5 billion. and a morning show meltdown to tell you about. kelly ripa reportedly ticked off over co-host michael strahan's departure from their show "live
3:05 am
with kelly and michael." even calling in sick. strahan is leaving for "good morning america" and never told ripa about it. he taawkwardly acknowledged her absence today. >> kelly is out today. and filling in for her is ana gastire amid news that i'm leaving the show. to go to "gma" full-time. >> he went on to thank ripa for all she's done. no word when ripa returns. i can't say i am surprised. >> he was discussing this two or three months this move. like regis, nobody told kelly ripa before that show. >> although there's a story in one of the new york papers that apparently it said she and mr. gellman knew about it for a
3:06 am
while. given the fact that she heard about it and then decided not to show up for work for the next four or five days, she's clearly angry. in addition to her being angry, there's a story in "the daily mail" that says lara spencer is furious with her bosses because she was promised the job that michael strahan is going to get. >> she's already on "gma." >> it said apparently they promised she would be the main anchor. she would be -- well, isn't the main anchor already there? >> we wish them well. i don't know them personally but i've met them before. they are nothing but nice. >> kelly is getting skewered by one newspaper. hailed as another as being a diva. >> i have never heard of this. >> it will probably help both of them. >> do you think strahan will eventually go back to the giants? >> maybe. maybe not, no. >> no.
3:07 am
his contract is pretty big at abc. i think he makes more money in tv. >> stephanopoulos is -- well, abc is not handling this the right way. this great item in "the wall street journal" says donald trump is going to be changing his campaign. not thematically but he said he's going to give a big foreign speech polito capitalize on the energy he got after mowing down new york state. take a listen to this, this was the him in maryland firing up crowds. >> build that wall! build that wall! build that wall! build that wall! build that wall! >> yea! okay, okay, we'll build the wall, but who is going to pay for the wall?
3:08 am
who? absolutely right. you got it right, folks. you got it right. i love that wall. hey, is it fun to be at a trump rally? [ cheers and applause ] >> it's so smart for him to head over to indiana and then over to maryland. he's got -- five states are coming up on tuesday, all he has to do well. but pennsylvania, you can only get 17 delegates. >> out of 71. >> it's so confusing. but it just shows you there is somebody there playing the tactic game because they are saying indiana will be a bigger deal. it's coming down the pike and right now it's in the cruz column. so we have to begin to work that column. for cruz, he's somebody that says don't worry about it, i can't mathematically get there, but i'll meet you in cleveland. that's where we'll win it. >> there's a big company in indiana called carrier and they make air-conditioning units. they moved to mexico so he's there speaking to the crowd
3:09 am
saying i'm going to bring the jobs back. they love that there. but you're right, cruz is, according to polls i was reading this morning, looking to win there. >> neither cruz nor kasich can make it mathematically and trump behind the scenes, their people are telling washington lawmakers they are estimating they will have 1400 delegates, which is more than than they need at the time of the convention. well, today the gop leaders are meeting in florida in hopes of uniting the party behind the convention rules. >> steve is live from hollywood. hi, steve. >> reporter: two of the candidates have been here in person to mingle behind the scenes, behind closed doors. afterwards, john kasich came out to say he's not interested in being anyone's vice president. and ted cruz said that no one is going to win on the first ballot. >> what is clear today is that we are headed to a convention.
3:10 am
nobody is able to reach 1,237. i'm not going to reach 1,237 and donald trump is not going to reach 1,237. >> reporter: well, those two candidates were here in florida smoozing with delegates in the party elite. donald trump was out on the campaign trail attacking that very same republican elite. >>le who ti ll politics is a ve dishonest business, folks. and i've never seen anything like it. and we're running for office and it's a rigged deal. this whole thing with delegates is rigged. it's a rig. where i win louisiana and i don't get as many delegates as some guy that lost? >> reporter: trump's campaign will stay make its presentation here tonight to the delegates. it will be senior advisers to mr. trump while he himself will be campaigning in pennsylvania.
3:11 am
back to you. >> thank you. what they are debating down there is whether reince priebus says we are not going to do this. will a white knight come in at the last moment, not kasich, cruz or trump, and take this thing. wait a second, we are not going to rule on that right now. that would be bad for the party. if we are going to do it, we're going to wait for the convention to get closer when we meet again in june. that would be worse. >> the key is with the white knight provision, it would still take a majority of the people at the convention to say, okay, we're okay for having a marco rubio come in or something like that. but you need to have a 50% plus 1 to get that. and given the fact that a majority will be cruz and/or trump supporters, that simply can't happen you wouldn't think. >> but donald trump could get the 1,237, so it may not be something that needs to be discussed. >> it's a high bar, though. >> one thing you saw, max in new york, it can be earned and cruz can also win it. so if he has a good strategy to
3:12 am
go to indiana and the northwest and other states straight ahead and maximize in california, he can do it. but unless he does, he's got to go roll up his sleeves and do it. and cruz has to stop him. >> but the key is, did new york, at 60%, give him some big mo going forward? we'll no next tuesday night. meanwhile, ahead on this thursday morning, a shocking announcement for one of our own here at fox news. john stossel has lung cancer. we'll have details coming up. and the big change for the $20 bill replacing andrew jackson with harriet tubman. is the treasury just pandering to the pc police? we're going to report and you decide. , nex /* next. in a world that's trying to turn you into someone new...

3:17 am
"con job," crystal bright. what is your take on this? harriet tubman, certainly a great american. >> i love harriet tubman. i don't think we should be changing the face of money because democrats are offended by history. this is once again, we have democrats now using our currency as a political weapon to pander to their constituents. this isn't about harriet tubman, they don't care about her. >> well, if you look at andrew jackson's background and find he's the founder of the democratic party, a two-term president of the united states. he's a war hero, he was jailed by the british and took a boot to the face from the british, a story that took his entire life. you look at a guy who is a key member of america. >> look, he was a founding member of america. i don't agree with everything andrew jackson did, but i don't agree with everything president
3:18 am
obama has done, right? but now we have to manipulate, you know, lou, treasury secretary lou, was forced to put a woman on the currency, right? why are we continuing -- now we are going to change the face of moy every twenty years to pander to their constituents? it's ridiculous! you know, we honor harriet tubman in other ways and many ways. did you know, brian, you probably know this, former president george h.w. bush in 1990 declared harriet tubman day. he created a day in honor of this great abolitionist. i mean -- >> that is great respect. i just think there's a huge problem when we try to judge our founding fathers instead of hailing what they accomplished in understanding what they did to get us here. is there going to be an hbo movie on this? if it came out earlier, would andrew jackson be saved as
3:19 am
opposed to the hamilton play on broadway, because that makes him safe. >> you know why hamilton was speared, right? the creator of the musical "hamilton" lobbied not to take hamilton off the bills, please, please, please. and lou was like, you're right. i think the other thing was that andrew jackson was a huge supporter of slavery. but he also took a lot of land from the native americans. so why not put a native american on it? when will this endless obsession with democrats over political correctness? >> he also took out the british, an army that just destroyed napoleon came over here and he defended new orleans and wiped them out in two-and-a-half hours while experiencing disentary. he's a war hero as we learn from our history. >> it's also the black lives matter influence. you remember the black lives matter mob that wanted to remove all the monuments to our
3:20 am
founding of the country? all the monuments in richmond, virginia, where i'm from. oh, let's just rip them down. that's craziness! we have to learn from our history, guys. >> absolutely. the color from madison and washington will be next if not there already. thank you, crystal. he lost his life in benghazi when the united states failed to send in help. this morning there's relief for the family of glenn daugherty. you want to hear this story. and now this man is paying good to the republican national convention. we'll explain. ♪

3:25 am
god. meanwhile, in other news, a shocking announcement from a member of our fox news family. john stossel has lung cancer. he wrote, quote, seems i have lung cancer. my doctors tell me my growth was caught early and i'll be fine. but as a consumer reporter, i have to say, the hospital's customer service stinks." the headline is he has cancer of the lungs, but the good news is according to this posting is they caught it early. >> very good news. john writes that only one-fifth of his lung will be removed. if you catch it early enough so it's only in the lung itself, there's a very high chance of a cure, 60% to 80%. so that is very good news. he's lucky that happened because lung cancer can be very deadly. not if you catch it early, he's got a good chance. >> he's at the number one hospital in the country. new york presbyterian.
3:26 am
and his doctors are great but the service is terrible. and he says, for example, the wait times. the redundancy of tests. the fact he keeps filling out the same form over and over again. >> he makes a great point in this article,ohn would be writing right now, by the way. the thing is, you're trying to please an agency or insurance company to be reimbursed. you don't want a lawsuit so you do these tests. nobody cares about the patient. he's getting woken up in the middle of the night. the worst he can do is complain to a patient advocate and nothing happens. all the hospital cares about is getting reimbursed. no wonder health costs are astronomical. >> i delivered my child at the hospital and had nothing but amazing care. the nurses were wonderful. i hate that for john, though. >> the doctors are great. it's the excess cost.
3:27 am
we'll talk about obamacare. one of the largest health insurance companies is opting out of obamacare. united health care no longer a part of it. >> that's a big headline. some places tried to down play that. united health care is the number one health care provider in the country. ainsley, the kaiser family foundation found that in 30% of the counties in the country, when they drop out, there's one insurer left. 30% more, there's two insurers left. what does that mean? no competition and prices keep spiraling upward. if you don't have competition, you can charge whatever you want. >> one of the things republicans have talked about on capitol hill since the passage of obamacare, i don't remember the name of the exact fund or part of obamacare, but there's essentially a great big slush fund to give to the insurance companies because they have big losses. now the slush fund isn't as plentiful and the company is
3:28 am
saying we can't make money. >> rubio put a stop to it. >> the united health care has stayed in the business. they would have lost $650 million this year alone. they say by 2017 they are getting out of obamacare because they are restricted and have to use 85% of the payments to go to direct patient costs. very little for profits. you know what, this is all due to the young people that obama thought would sign up would rather pay the penalty. so the people signing up for obamacare have diabetes, heart disease, lung disease. they are sick. no healthy people. so it cost a lot of people. >> so this is the beginning of what could be the implosion or we could be pushing to single payer, which could be the goal, correct? >> if hillary clinton wins, we'll see a public option to make it worse, it takes it away from the private insurers the way you said. if the republicans win, they talk about repealing obamacare. donald trump says he'll repeal
3:29 am
obamacare. this is where obamacare should head because he's imploding and is too expensive and not delivering quality care. that's the last point, if you do to the doctor's office, you may be covered for prevent services. but if you're sick, you end up paying out of pocket anyway. not working. >> if there's a health care provider in a person's exchange, that's a monopoly. >> you pay what they charge and they charge what they have so they don't lose $60 million. >> man, oh, man. dr. siegal is sticking around. today you're making your mother's stuffed cabbage? >> i'm an eater. i'm not the cook. >> today, cooking with the doctor. we'll see you then. >> good to see you. we look forward to that. coming up, the biggest drug smuggling tunnel from mexico to california ever discovered. a half-mile long complete with an elevator and rail system. you have to hear about this.

3:46 am
their release came just before the president made his trip there. should we be freeing the suspects, some listed as high risk to the united states, to a nation that could have deep terror ties? here to weigh in, fox news senior judicial analyst, judge andrew napolitano. what a coincidence, the saturday before the president goes to saudi arabia, boom! >> this is not a coincidence. this is an enormously complex issue. the supreme court is very critical of gitmo. khalid sheikh mohommad has been there for 12 years and they have not started the trial yet for a variety of reasons. we are confronted with a call from people in both parties and a call from people on the 9/11 commission to declassify the 28 pages that president george w. bush classified as secret, top secret. and president obama has continued that classification. what's in there? it's the commission's analysis of the role of the saudi arabian
3:47 am
government and people in the government in their private capacity in support of 9/11. don't we have the right to know that? i would argue we do. at the same time that's out there, we have a piece of legislation proposed by chuck schumer, al franken, rand paul and john cornace. it makes an exception to the you can't sue another government law for saudi arabia for 9/11. just because we have the exception for syria and for iran. at the same time that's happening, the president is visiting saudi arabia. at the same time that's happening, they are releasing these people and sending them to saudi arabia. so this is all connected and part of the president's scheme to have his cake and eat it, too. >> the president -- >> the president doesn't want to address the fact that saudi arabia has been an enemy under the guys of being a friend.

>> sure. clearly the president is in the legacy stage of this administration. he's on the back nine and he's making these trips into various places. he wants to close gitmo. saudi arabia helps by taking these particular guys, but don't you think you could do it -- two things here, one, if you declassify the 28 pages, then we'll know. and if you read any of the reports about how every time the fbi went to investigate, they were told, saudi arabia is involved, back off away from that. it's one thing to declassify that. but it's another thing to then allow us to sue them. maybe we just declassify it as this point so we know what is going on. >> if he declassifies it, the pressure to allow the lawsuits will grow exponentially because i think there will be some things in there, let me suggest to you, favors done by the american government to saudis in the united states at or about the time of 9/11. >> so the united states was complacent with the saudis. >> yes, that will outrage people
3:49 am
and turn up the heat for this legislation. now, in 1976, the congress said you can't sue a foreign government for their official government actions. we made an exception to that for syria. we made an exception to that for iran. yesterday the supreme court upheld the exception for iran and ordered that a bank account three blocks from here at citibank containing $1.5 billion to the government of iran be distributed to the victims in the united states, the estate of the americans harm in iran. has that caused a flood of litigation the other way of iranians suing the united states government in iranian courts? no. >> should we know what is in the 28 pages? >> yes, we should know. we have a right to know the truth. we are a mature nation and believe in transparency. >> we can handle the truth. >> how much of that ice cream is on the floor over there? >> just a little bit. but it was still delicious. all right, judge, thank you. >> all the best.

what a lovely topic. the royal palace releasing this photo of queen elizabeth and all of her grandchildren. marking her 90th birthday today. the queen, the eldest to sit on the throne in great britain in history. what are her relationships and rivalries really like? it's revealed in a brand-new book called "game of crowns" written by christopher anderson. good to see you. >> thank you. >> congratulations on the book. >> thank you. >> let's start with the rivalries. is there a rivalry between kate and camilla, jockeying for the queen's admiration? >> well, you have to remember that when charles married camilla he had to promise that she'd never be queen, he's going to renege on that. >> really? >> he was asked, will she be queen, he said, we'll see. and one of the elementary school
3:55 am
kids said will you be queen, she said you everyone in know. it will take an act of parliament to keep her from being keep. camilla has been pulling the strings, she picked diana as charles' bride. camilla is very much an aristocrat. she thinks the future king should marry an aristocrat and kate is from a working class family so camilla has been somewhat resentful of kate. a lot of sniping that goes on behind the scenes and in team camilla as they call it. team camilla versus team kate. an interesting competition. >> what does the queen think about camilla and kate? >> the queen used to call camilla that wicked woman because camilla led to the breakup of diana's marriage. as we know, camilla after diana's death was the most despised woman in the world. she had to learn to accept her because she makes her son happy.
3:56 am
now that the queen is turning 90 she's at a crossroads. if she lives as long as her mother, he won't be king until 80. >> what was the most shocking thing? >> the way that camilla tried to break up william and kate, she was whispering in charles' ears, look, if you here in going to marry this girl, cut her free. william listened to his father's advice and then kate's mother said, no, go out there and make yourself very visible and get him back. so she won william back. they have a solid relationship. the great thing about kate middleton, she has a husband who does love her unlike -- >> and the world loves her. >> absolutely. >> thank you so much. >> great -- >> congratulations on this. >> thank you. saudi arabia offered former mayor rudy giuliani $10 million as condolences for 9/11 and the mayor tore it up in their face. what does giuliani think of the possibility that the saudis funded the 9/11 attack? we'll ask him live in the next hour. and one says that african-american college

4:01 am
gets worse from there as we go inside bernie sanders rally. and replacing andrew jackson with harriet tubman. is the treasury pandering to the pc police? we report, you decide because your mornings remain better only with "friends." >> so we'll have change for a 20? >> change in the 20. and it's going to be in 2020. >> here's the thing about the fact that they have announced this change. right? why does it take six or seven years to get a new bill? we can't do it until 2020, why that long? >> hopefully they'll change their minds, because the play changed their mind about "hamilton." now one coming out about jackson. >> four years to change their mind -- >> because the adams series is different. now everyone has a different perception of adams. i didn't know we had to keep remaking our past.
4:02 am
>> the past is prologue. >> let's go over to heather with some breaking news for us. >> good morning to you. i hope you're off to a good day. a fox news alert, a shocker. chyna one of the most legendary women wrestlers of all time has died. she was 46 years old. her real name is joanie laurer. a cause of death hasn't been released but she has a history of drug problems and arrests. she was on vh1's "celebrity rehab" program. foul play is not suspected. she became an actress after her wrestling career ended. brand evidence that may show that oscar pistorius beat his girlfriend before shooting and murdering her. injuries on steenkamp's back matches that of a cricket bat. he says he shot her through the door after he mistook her for an intruder and then used the bat
4:03 am
to break down the door once he realized it was her. if this is proven true it could back up the prosecution's case that he killed her in a fit of rage. she was kidnapped, shoved in the trunk of a car. this morning, miami police have shot and killed the guy who was responsible for it. it all started when the suspect grabbed a woman and threw her in his car which she later abandoned. the woman was reportedly able to call cops from inside that trunk. officers tracked him down through the woods that's when the suspect pointed a gun at police before being shot. the woman amazingly not hurt. the cops not yet saying if the two knew one another. and finally a happy story to bring you right now. this awesome. a diner cook gets a sweet taste of victory. eduardo reyes is his name. he won $7 million on a scratch off ticket. it took him a week to cash it in because he couldn't get off work. he says he wants to buy a new
4:04 am
house and take his family on vacation. but here's the thing. he's been a cook at the colonnade diner in staten island for 17 years now. and he says he still plans to be at work later today. what an awesome guy. now, if colonnade sounds familiar to you, that's because it's the same diner where "fox & friends" weekend co-host anna kooiman was talking live to voters before the primary just last week. and those are your headlines. i love that story. >> that's great. >> we need to bring him on the show. >> absolutely. >> yeah. >> thank you very much. >> thank you. after donald trump won, after donald trump won yesterday, he was -- it was noteworthy he was saying, senator ted cruz and governor john kasich. well, he went back to his raucous ways yesterday. >> lyin' ted. >> yeah. lyin' ted and crooked hillary. this guy is quite happy and optimistic that he can continue his winning streak now he went from indiana in the morning with his 56 delegates at stake on may
4:05 am
3rd to maryland in the afternoon. >> well, i don't know why you're so surprised. we have been doing well. i have done well my whole life. i have had victories my whole life so we'll have another victory. we have thousands of people. we're in indiana. we have thousands of people behind me. you probably hear, it's been amazing. last night was so incredible in new york. >> then last night, he was also in berlin, maryland, out on the delmarva peninsula. a great item in the "wall street journal" said there's significant changes to the trump campaign. you know they have different people working the back rooms. he's going to give a big speech on foreign policy. he's going to start using a teleprompter. he's hired a speechwriter. it's all part of the evolution of the campaign. because he says and this is a quote, i'm not going to blow it. >> yeah. he's using his own money to fund his campaign. look at these numbers this is pretty fascinating.
4:06 am
if you look at the amount of money that these three candidates spent in new york to get the vote, and you add -- if you divide up how many votes they got and how much they spent on advertising look at this. bernie spent $9.03 per vote. hillary, $3.62 per vote. and trump 13 cents. >> in comparison, keep in mind when jeb bush was running in iowa, he spent $2,800 per vote. then in new hampshire he only had to spend $1,150 per -- >> only? >> and donald trump, 13 cents. that's a good value. >> yeah. steve he never got traction, unbelievable how much money is still in the jeb bush super pac. by the way, this is what donald trump was using for a speech. he'd write on this side of the page before he'd address the 6,000 people. then i have a little bit more on that side of the page. that was his speech writing in magic marker. >> yeah. in fact, you interviewed him right before he went on stage. >> yes, he writes long hand. >> there's great. >> let's talk about how hillary
4:07 am
clinton's unfavorability rating has skyrocketed. take a look at this. she's now at 56%. donald trump is at 65%. but hillary's unfavorable -- favorable is now at 32% which his is at 24%. what's interesting the fact that her unfavorability number has continued to go up. his is pretty much at the same place. hers has gone up because bernie sanders has been beating the soup out of her. >> well, scott walker said he'll support which ever candidate wins on the republican side. whoever becomes the nominee, but he says that the reason for this is people don't like hillary. they don't trust her. even the bernie supporters don't trust her. >> so donald trump has to go a listen way to get his favorabilities up. he's got solid support but he's got to grow that pie as ari fleischer said last night. frank luntz said right now, he'd
4:08 am
look at hillary as a 4-3 favorite but a lot can change. >> right now, while bernie sanders has -- you know, he's got legions of his fans and apparently he says he's still in it, he's not going the drop out at this point, david webb, our own david webb, went to the bernie sanders rally to figure out, okay, if bernie sanders drops out, that means they have to support hillary clinton. do they like hillary clinton? watch this. >> what's the one word you would use to describe hillary clinton. >> oh, treacherous. >> hillary clinton? she said it, opportunistic. >> untrustworthy. >> scary. >> what's the one word to describe hillary clinton? >> avoidable? i yi yi. i don't want to use the word crook. but um -- untruthful. >> the ordinary. >> what about you? >> traditional. >> disconnected. >> what about you?
4:09 am
>> establishment. >> what's the one word you would use to describe hillary clinton? >> dishonest. >> oh, she's a liar. >> opulence. that's the one word. >> choke, lies. >> that's two. you got one more? >> disgrace. stale. >> a fraud. >> wow. >> they have to get -- >> if you're the clinton camp you have do get bernie sanders out the race, because that's getting bad. >> every time he says she is unqualified, you know, that just kind of goes into the part of those brains. you know, keep it right there. >> and poor decision making. meanwhile, another big story, jack lew the treasury secretary has decided not to replace alexander hamilton on the ten. >> thank goodness. >> instead -- excuse me, andrew
4:10 am
jackson, and replace him with a great woman who saved lives from slavery, harriet tubman. an unbelievable woman, vital to america's past, but taking apart our history, taking off our seventh president is something that i can't believe that we would go ahead and do. >> some like the decision. we took to the streets of new york. listen to what said that. >> i think it's about time. like a twofer. you have women represented and african-americans. >> my family comes from the jamestown colony where the first africans were brought into north america. >> and not only is it about time, but women have had respect for a long time, but not an equal way to the man. >> i think it's great. i think it's about time a woman's face is on a piece of u.s. currency. >> so jackson actually, you know, some don't like him because of they say he brutally suppressed the indians and he was a slave owner. of course, back then a lot of people owned slaves.
4:11 am
he'll be on the back of the bill. but crystal wright who is a -- she's got that conservative blog called conservative black chick, she was on "fox & friends" earlier. she said, look, this is all politics. there was a push to put a woman on. this is all about pandering. here she is. listen to this. >> i love harriet tubman. i don't think we should be changing the face of money because democrats are offended by history. i mean, this is once again we have democrats now using our currency as a political weapon to pander to their constituents. this isn't about harriet tubman. they don't care about her. it's ridiculous. we honor tubman in other ways. did you know that president -- former president george h.w. bush in 1990 declared harriet tubman day. he created a day in honor of this great abolitionist.
4:12 am
>> our seventh president was an extraordinary american. he is a true american story, lost both his parents, his brother. actually a curry in the revolutionary war, he was almost beaten and killed. he won the battle of new orleans and pensacola and became a two-term president. left extremely popular. >> well, he's on the back of the bill. and she is going to be on the front. >> how can you be remaking history at this point? it's incredible. >> send us your comments. >> 7:12 here in new york city. saudi arabia offered former new york mayor rudy giuliani $10 million as condolences of 9/11 and he tore up the check in their face. what does he think about the fact that the saudis could be responsible for part of the attack? he joins us live next. he's been called one of the most scorned men in the medical world after making a documentary claiming that the cdc lied about the link between autism and

4:17 am
in 9/11. former new york city mayor rudy giuliani famously ripped up a condolence check from the saudis, and he joins us from houston this morning to react. good morning. >> good morning. how are you? >> we're doing okay. you were here a couple of days ago and you know there are a lot of new yorkers and people across the country that want to know whether or not there was a connection between the saudi royal family, saudi government, and what happened on 9/11. >> well, i'm one of them. i mean, i lost almost 3,000 of my citizens, i almost lost my own life as well as my commissioners. i saw people beaten down, killed and destroyed during that attack. then i was given a check by a saudi arabian prince for $10 million. and he had the temerity to put
4:18 am
out a press release blaming america and israel for the attack on september 11th. i can't tell you what i said when i decided to tear up the check and give it back to him because i can't repeat it on television. but i want you to know in return for that $10 million check, we ended up raising $240 million for all of the firefighters and police officers which included jeff immelt and your boss, rupert murdoch and roger ailes and lots of other people. he can keep his money and burn it in hell. the reality, i don't need to know, but the american people need to know what was the role of the saudi arabian government in the attack. and my suspicion is i'm going to give you my suspicion. it was at a lower level, not at a higher level. but we're entitled to know that in order to assess it, particularly in light of this legislation about suing saudi arabia.
4:19 am
because that will help us decide whether it is appropriate or it is not appropriate. >> well, let me tell you what's in the daily mail -- the lond"ln daily mail". the guy is being held at gitmo, he went from being a pilot, trained here. he was seen with the hijackers going to this report, and he become a bomb maker from al qaeda, eventually caught in pakistan. they have him linked with the saudi embassy in the u.s. >> they found a flight certificate in his possession and that was -- >> never, never should be released for the rest of his life. we're out of our minds to release him. and number two, you might wr wren -- remember there was an indication that a group of saudis were allowed to go back to saudi arabia, either the night of that incident or the morning after that incident. >> that's right. >> and being close to the fbi and being in law enforcement all my life, that always made me

that is a dustdevil that popped up during a college softball game in virginia. it lasted about 30 seconds. nobody was hurt. no idea what the score of the game was, but that's just a little by crazy. steve? it's a film that's so controversial it's getting booted from some film festivals. "vax" claims that the cdc manipulate and hid data that proves that there's a link between vaccines and autism. >> i think my child's had adverse reactions to those shots and then kind -- and then constant banging against anything he could find. >> right now, i'm sitting in a very pretty position in terms of providing you a lot of information. >> they sliced and diced the data in an effort to get rid of that effect. >> the relative risk of receiving an autism diagnosis was astronomical. >> wow. the cdc had known all along there was this autism risk.
4:26 am
>> joining us right now this morning is the director and co-writer of "vax" dr. andrew wakefield and the film's producer. she has a 20-year-old son with autism. good morning. >> good morning. >> dr. wakefield, you are linked to this story ever since back in 1998 you put out a study that linked a connection between the mmr vaccine and autism. and so years later, you come up and you're putting out this particular documentary because you are talking about the corruption behind the scenes at the cdc. >> yes. i have been involved in this debate for 20 years. it's one of the hottest debates in medicine. it hasn't gone away. then suddenly after 20 years the cdc senior scientist dr. william thompson says forward they have known for 14 years that mmr vaccine is casually associated with autism and they have covered it up. so the film that it's his word, his opinion, it's his documents.
4:27 am
that really carry the message of this film. that there has been a huge cover-up which has put millions of american children in harm's way and it was totally unnecessary. >> millions of americans have heard about your original report where is there a connection between the mmr vaccine and autism? i know your son -- you were once upon a time pro vaccine. >> yeah. >> but then tell us about your son, billy. >> well, i was extremely pro vaccine as all the parents are in the same situation. we took our children along to get the shots. we talked about pediatricians -- >> you had to. >> quite. so we did this, and from my -- for my son, he had the mmr in the morning. by the evening he was in the hospital having a huge convulsion. we never got him back. he's 20 years old, but he should be at college. he's missed his teenage years. the future is bleak for people like billy. he's one of millions worldwide.
4:28 am
>> do you feel it was the mmr vaccine? >> i know it was the mmr vaccine. >> because it just happened. too much of a coincidence. >> the doctors in the hospital said he's having a reaction to the mmr vaccine, but it will be okay. well, it wasn't okay. and every day that the media says vaccines do not cause autism, every day, that injection going into children damaging more and more babies. it has to stop. >> sure. dr. wakefield, i know at the tribeca film festival this was supposed to be played. but robert de niro decided not to. actually he has a family member with autism. are politics involved thin this? >> undoubtedly. we have tried to convey to people this is not an anti-vaccine movie. it is reporting upon a fraud in the cdc, the nation's foremost -- >> this is about corruption. >> about corruption, absolutely. robert de niro is put in an insidious position by the board of tribeca, announced that the
4:29 am
film was going to play, he had to retract it, repeatedly since it that time he's endorsed the film. he said everybody must see that film. and that's the case. as you say out there, fox news, we report, you decide. please see this film. make up your own mind. do not be persuaded by journalists who have written without ever having reviewed the film in advance of saying this is anti-vaccine film. >> robert de niro is a parent of a child damaged by the vaccines. he's been on our side from the beginning. >> i'm going to watch it. >> everybody needs to watch it. >> polly and dr. wakefield, thank you. once again the movie is out there, it's called "vaxxed." coming up, a harvard student says he deserves free college because he's black. but is that really racial justice? you know her, you love her, the fantastic brooke burke-charvet is helping us to

deterioration in the u.s./saudi relationship, but to be fair it's not great, but more strained now, in particular because of the president's recent turn to tehran. but today, national security council adviser ben rhodes said the only way to increase security in the region is to engage diplomatically, even with countries with whom you disagree. >> the violence that we see in yemen, in syria and iraq is not in the interest of anybody. and that in order to resolve these conflicts there has to be a diplomatic effort with the iranians. >> reporter: i want to also remind you that the 9/11 topic did not come up in conversation yesterday between the president and the saudi king. he said ben -- ben rhodes said, look, they know where we stand on this issue. we feel like there's no way that the president would support any legislation that would hold accountable foreign governments spo -- for sponsoring acts of

4:46 am
matter of justice. reclaim harvard law school issued a statement. due to the legacy of centuries of white supremacy and plunder, people of color are less likely to have amassed wealth in the united states. therefore, these disproportionately burdened students of color. now if students don't pay for it, who pays for the tuition? joins is kmele foster from freethink.com and the fifth column podcast. welcome back. kennedy says hi. first off, how do you feel about the position of let's make harvard law free. it should cost $59,000. >> college is very expensive, but here's what we know about educational subsidy, all of the attempts to make college more affordable by giving people money or dramatically reducing tuition, all this does is make -- we all know that unless
4:47 am
you can suspend the laws of economics or physics you can't make stuff free. someone has to pay for it. >> what about the white supremacy aspect of the article? here we are in 2016, does it apply? >> you know, the universe is filled with historic injustices and we can try our best to make all these things better and the roads straight for people going forward into the future. but you can't really do that. the bottom line is that justice means something in this country. traditionally it's about us having sort of equal protection under the law. the right to free speech. the right to any number of natural rights but the right to a university education, the right to things that you would like to have that would be very nice to have, those aren't quite the same things. we lose something really, really important when we conflate what we'd like to have with the essential rights. a concrete notion of justice. >> if you're not doing to pay for it, how is it going to be free? we have an idea, let's cut

teacher's salaries. i wonder how many -- >> some teachers might leave. >> yeah. also, just live off the endowment of harvard law school. >> which you can do for a period of time until that endowment is gone. the universities require money to function. the people need to be paid money to do a job and you can't send people to school for free. this is the difficulty with bernie sanders frequent propositioning and promising that he will give people stuff like free higher education and free health care. it costs something. that is the absolute fact. >> so people watching right now, white, black, asian, doesn't matter. they have different opinions on this perhaps. how do you feel about the push in this country for -- and the new buzz term is, you know, white supremacy and, you know -- >> yeah. >> white privilege. >> it's an old term and i think there's something problematic about the way we talk about the history of racism in this country and white supremacy going forward. it sounds as if's some active --
4:49 am
as if there's some active conspiracy to disadvantage black people. black and white people and everybody else have a variety of backgrounds in this country and some of us are born with certain advantages. and others don't have those advantages. we can't make all of that right through the law. the very best that we can hope for, this is a heck of a high standard is the quality under the law. that the law treats us all fairly and equally and i can't jump as high as lebron james. i don't have the advantages that he has. that doesn't entitle me with anything. >> did you grow one wealth? >> no, i'm a first generation american. my family is from caribbean, jamaica, where there was intense poverty and still is to this day. there was slavery for a long time but i don't think i'm entitled to anything that belongs to anyone else. my family has worked very hard. >> as are you today. congratulations on everything. kmele foster, on his opinion over at harvard. coming up straight ahead,
