3:00 am
many people show up wearing her color. >> i asked her before we came on, julie, you need to put a jacket on. >> i told you two hours ago. [laughter] >> happening on the air. not pretty. the reporter put a black jacket on. abby: "fox & friends" starts right now. >> my belief is we have to stay focus from a military that's so lethal. on the battlefield, it will be the enemy's longest day and worst days. >> what is the best possible thing we can do for somebody who is on government assistance? >> get them off of it. >> what do you consider the greatest threat of the united states of america? >> terrorism. >> fbi director james comey broke the rules, looks as if the democrats on the way out of the door are trying to leave behind as many land mines as they can
3:01 am
-- >> joe, for your faith in fellow americans and for your lifetime of service i'm please today award our nation's highest civilian honor, the presidential medal of freedom. [applause] >> he had no idea the medal was coming. he thought it was a good-bye and how great he was. he knew something was coming but clearly moved by that moment. ainsley: emotional moment. he had a tough last year and a half. lost his son and now saying good-bye to the house. brian: and the friendship between those two is absolutely -- steve: seemed real which is extraordinary in the job. speaking of presidents, we are going to have a new one one week from today but i will tell you, aside from those hearing things we just showed you, we are going to talk about it today, it was a
3:02 am
weird day on capitol hill, during the pompeo hearing they were talking about russian influence. mark warner was and suddenly the lights went out in the hearing room and on c-span they were talking about russia, once again, it's replaced by russia today. brian: that's unexplainable as far as i'm concerned. ainsley: not a coincidence. what's going on? brian: i can't get rit -- what is it called, rt, at my house. ainsley: try coat hanger. brian: all of a sudden it comes down, james comey once again is in the eye of the storm as the justice department inspector decides i'm going to look at the handling of the private server investigation by james comey. >> we are aweek away from the inauguration and many are saying that this is the democrats attempt to debunk the election to say, discredit donald trump,
3:03 am
they're saying the reason is james comey came out and held the conference and condemned hillary clinton and at the very end he did not indict. brian: that got republicans upset. ains apes that got republicans upset and the democrats were prizing them. remember, nancy pelosi. brian: i want my kids to be just like him. he decided to close the investigation. many people said he lost the election for hillary clinton. steve: of course, look, of course, they are talking about the private server so she set up so how can that possibly be james comey's problem? there's more to it than just that. remember we were talking about the deputy director andrew whose wife got half a million dollars, super pack when she was running for state senator down in virginia, they are going to look at that to make sure that was above board. plus the guy peter who was john
3:04 am
podesta's roommate, he's at the department of justice as well and apparently he leaked some information about an ongoing foia, freedom of information act request, regarding hillary's e-mail server. they're looking at that too. the headline is they're looking into comey. >> it looks as if the democrats on the way out of the door are trying to leave behind as many land mines as they can to at least cast doubts on the legitimacy of the trump victory. i'm not sure this is the best way to assure a good transition, one where you transfer not just the authority of office but the legitimacy, but that seems to be what the democrats want to do as they get out of power. brian: in a way it's working because if you look at the media
3:05 am
travel ratings, donald trump got the boost. controversy from the electoral system being the wrong system from fake news really giving the election to him to russia hacks the reason, now the comey investigation and now we spend all of this sparring, now only has the honeymoon lasted eight minutes. now the ratings are down to where they were right before the election, which by the way, he won convincingly. if you look at all of the things together, it's a concerted effort, one after another from the recount on down to take donald trump and make him a legitimate, if, indeed, he does get to the white house which i believe he's going to get to next week. it's unbelievably un-american. ainsley: right, what do you think about that? send us your comments. do people really care about this? this is something that america dealt with months ago. steve: it's time to move on. the democrats have had a million excuses, get over it.
3:06 am
he won fair and square. brian: that affects the election, the emails come out, they reveal the dnc's in cahoot with hillary clinton to make sure bernie sanders doesn't get the election. that is something that was exposed. it wasn't doctored or faked. what about the bully bush tape? how did that affect the election? who leaked that out? who leaked out donald trump's tax returns? how is that fair. that's call the process. things come up, people come out, more evidence comes forward, that's part of it. the russian hacks are the last thing but reveals what was going on with the nominee that was about to get -- ainsley: after the bully bush tapes came out donald trump wasn't blaming bully bush, he wasn't blaming -- brien: nbc. ainsley: hillary clinton is blaming everyone else and she's responsible for the e-mail server. donald trump came out and
3:07 am
apologized to his wife and american people and he wins the election. hillary clinton is blaming everyone else. blaming james comey, she's the one that did this. she had the private server. steve: a win is a win. trump won, let's move on. when you look at the people who he has nominated to make up cabinet, they are great americans, dr. ben carson at hud, crazy questions yesterday, we are going to play some of those for you. also mad dog mattis, he got the waiver from the senate overwhelming so he will most probably be our next defense secretary and mike pompeo, the guy who is donald trump ice pick to run cia, first at his class at westpoint and harvard business, rather harvard law. ainsley: you're saying he's smart. steve: a smart guy. essentially what he said, yeah, russia hacked us, no, we won't bring back enhanced
3:08 am
interrogation and both mattis and pompeo said as well they are going to get tough with russia. watch this. >> i think it's under the biggest attacks since world war ii, sir, and that's from russia, from terrorist groups and with what china is doing in the south china sea. >> it is going to require incredibly robust american response, response that's security-related response, we have to get better at defending against these and then a response that holds actors accountable who commit these kind of actions against the united states of america. >> look at mike pompeo, look at general mattis, look at general kelly, they disagree with the president elected of the united states. the president of the united states has position on things, what if we get along with russia, that doesn't mean he's prorussia. you have three people with 40 to 50 years of experience answering questions honestly. the current president of the united states went to four
3:09 am
secretary of defense, it's not a big deal that everybody doesn't sing in the same hymn sheet. together they will make this president better. that's the question. if they all stick to the same thing they have to be related somehow to the each other or memorized answers which is not the point of this confirmation. ainsley: every time we watch confirmation hearings, there's always one senator who is trying to get the got-you question in there. it might not have anything to do with it -- steve: nothing. ainsley: why are you asking that question. we have seen that several times last week and yesterday was no different. trying to ask a question to mad dog mattis and listen to his response. it's pretty strong. >> do you believe that openly serving homosexuals along with women in combat units is undermining our force? >> senator, my belief is that we have to stay focus on military that's so lethal that on the battlefield it will be the enemy's longest day and their
3:10 am
worst day when they run into that force. steve: the way he answered that question, there was one other extraordinary question and that was from the new senator from the great state of california. camila harris asked mike pompeo, okay, he's going to run the cia, ask him about climate change. maybe she thinks the c in cia stands for climate but it doesn't, it stands for central. brien: what about climate change and your vision of the world, wait a second, climate change is an issue but we can't be the only one fighting for it specially when it cur -- circumvents our defense. he was so good yesterday -- people were in awe of what he was saying. ainsley: he's just tough, tough when he comes to the military and i like that.
3:11 am
steve: a guy that you want for the job. brian: if there's one guy tougher than steve doocy, it might be general mattis. steve: in the meantime heather joins us on this friday. >> happy friday to you all. mysterious white powder forced plane to make emergency landing, three alaskan crew members getting sick. powder blowing through air vent on flight from seattle to san francisco. that's where it was forced to land. the substance turns out to be, it was actually deicing fluid. the flight carrying 200 passengers and six crew members took off a short time later. president obama ending a controversial 20-year-old immigration policy for cubans just one week before he leaves office. effectively immediately the u.s. will suspend the wet-foot, dry-foot policy, that a lose any

3:14 am
you wouldn't believe what's in this kiester. a farmer's market. a fire truck. even a marching band. and if i can get comfortable talking about this kiester, then you can get comfortable using preparation h. for any sort of discomfort in yours. preparation h. get comfortable with it.

3:16 am
3:17 am
>> mr. president elect, can you give us a question -- you're attacking, can you give us a question? >> don't be -- i'm not going to give you a question. you are fake news. >> sir, can you -- steve:
3:18 am
brian: many slamming the reporter for asking the questions and others saluting him about asking the question and for the network and others publishing these rumors about donald trump, this is the latest example of some of the mainstream media blurring the line offense journalism, perhaps to attack the president elect. when you saw the exchange, you saw something bigger, in what way? >> sure, well, i think journalists have an obligation to tell the truth and i think that, you know, we have an old news room that we like to repeat as reporters if your mother says she loves you, you should check it out. i think that that's very clearly sums up the ethical obligations that reporters have, we have an obligation to publish the truth and not just what we think is the truth but what can be verified as true and i think when reporters don't do that and when they cross the line, they need to be called out and we need to police one another to make sure that we do that. >> the fact that somehow the
3:19 am
intel source came forward and said that the fbi director did personally brief donald trump friday, does that change anything? >> absolutely not. i think it's very clear that russia's involvement in the election to whatever extent that truly was was an attempt to make americans, you know, unsettled or distrust our electoral system and distrust our government and i think that reporters when thawr not precise about what happens, i think that they're aiding and abetting moscow's information campaign and aiding and abetting the kremlin. >> he compared the birther push that donald trump was behind to this. let me take a look at the tweet as we move prompter forward. there's an old saying, live by the sword, you know what it means. so is donald trump feeling some of the wrath that he brought forward five years ago?
3:20 am
>> no, that's completely ridiculous. it's a reporter's job to publish claims that are verified and can be completely a 100% corroborated as true. i think in the climate that we have today where only 4% of americans have a favorable view of the media and an overwhelming number of them think that we are align and we have bias when we are reporting, i think we are fighting uphill battle and proving ourselves to be trust worthy and he's under mining the cause and the fight and i think that that's frustrating to watch as a reporter myself. brian: he made so much news about border wall, supreme court justice, it was swamped by the combative nature of the press specially with the reporter in particular and the other thing was he fights back and i don't think many people were prepared for that after clinton, bush and obama. thank you so much. >> thank you. brian: ten minutes before the bottom of the hour straight ahead. you want your kid to be a doctor
3:21 am

5:18 am
this is unprecedented because it's an exception. the law normally requires military vets to be out of uniform for a minimum of seven years before they can begin working at the pentagon. mattis just retired in 2013. but lawmakers voted 81-17 approving the waiver hours after mattis testified, before the senate armed forces committee. and he had a little back and forth with new york senator kristen dealing with gays and women. >> do you think gays and homosectional is undermining our force? >> senator, my belief is that we have to stay focused on a military that is so lethal on the battlefield it will be the enemy's longest day and their worst day when they run into that force.

if i feel i'm right, and i do feel they're bullies. that's all they are. hard-core bullies on the west coast in california trying to control what we do, what we buy, what we sell in maine. it is definitely the wrong way to go. steve: here's the thing. it wasn't a corporate donation. it was she as an individual decided to write a check to donald trump for something like $25,000. but the lefties, they were so upset, donald trump saw her on our show and then tweeted out. ainsley: yeah, he said grab your wallet and then go buy. >> he said thank you to linda been of ll been for your great support and encourage. people will support you even more now. buy ll bean. but then of course there are other people on social media that still say they're going to boycott the company. allison tweeted i'm about to find and throw out the llbean

5:28 am
steve: so it's okay for people to have civil discourse if it's positive to democratic causes. but when you support the >> nicole kidman's comment was not controversial whatsoever. she just said support the president-elect. brian: tom hanks said something similar and, by the way, one of those two was married to tom cruise. ainsley: now she's married to keith urban, they're right but you never get over tom cruise i hear. ainsley: exactly. >> are you speaking from personal experience? brian: no, never met. steve: i think you are.

5:35 am
you've never been elected, so who gives you -- why do you think you could give me advice? but he said if you hung in there and gave a persuasive argument, he said oftentimes lbj would be repeating your arguments the next day. steve: that's interesting. also a bit of advice, you say essentially some of these aids who are working with the president should be like the cheese cake factory. and that is you should have a lot of choices. when you go in, present them with a lot of choices. >> well, you did read the piece. yeah, the decision -- i talked four baskets. the president, the second one was decision-making, and it's really important for the white house to offer up to the president a wide range of options. and some white house people would attempt. okay. i want this issue settled this way, so i'm going to hide from the president and other potential options. and this was -- this is bad. you ought to have a wide range of options. you ought to argue those things in front of the president. no end run. president is ill served if he

has aids coming in saying this individual ought to do a. this person coming in ought to do b. sometimes that ends up with the last person you talk to is who you follow. everybody has to be in the room. make those arguments. if you haven't particularly expected, make sure the strongest arguments are made in the meeting in order to get the most robust range of options and the fullest amount of information in order to get the decision. ainsley: you have confidence to keep a respective mind and keep an open mind. >> absolutely. and i have to tell you. this -- i almost did not go to the white house because of the stories i heard about the conflict between staff in previous white houses. and one white house, they literally had to seat the people on the opposite sides of the table, the factions were so strong. but as a white house staffer, it's really important to not play games, to return their phone calls, listen carefully to what they had to say, be open to changing your opinion if they're convincing.
5:37 am
and one white house, literally the guy in charge of a particular set of decision-making meetings would invite his friends to the meeting at 12:00 noon, and he would invite the people that he didn't like and that whose opinions he wanted to diminish at 12:30 so that they would arrive late and towards the end of the meeting. i mean, this business is too important to engagement like that. steve: and also remember too, your behavior reflects on the president because he's going to be in the middle of it. he hired you. he nominated you. and what you do reflects on him or her. >> that's absolutely right. and in addition to that, you need to save time for your personal life. because i've seen too many white house staffers who are there early in the morning and there way too late at night. and you can get burned out. if you don't have save time for family, faith, and friends, and a personal life, you're going to get burned out. and when you're burned out, you're of no utility to the president of the united states. steve: sure and would your advice be members to the obama administration do not pry any
5:38 am
of the letters off of the typewriters or the word processors? like the clintons did pried all the ws. >> well, i'm confident the obama staff is not going to stoop to that. president clinton i suspect was horrified when he found out what some people had done, and we couldn't have been a better treated by the clinton people. there were some more people who did some bad things as they walked out the door. >> so stay classy. >> stay classy, san diego. brian: a lot to do with why the clintons and bushes get along so well now. >> thank you. brian: chris will be joining us from 9:00 to noon. not the whole time, i promise because ainsley has to get some quality time too. ainsley: i know. brian: we just don't have a picture for you too. ainsley: geraldo will be there too. steve: i'm going to have to get myself a radio. ainsley: you're on thursdays.
5:39 am
>> it's called kilmeade and friends. we're all on. ainsley: we get paid to be his friends; right? we certainly do. >> thank you very much. >> i'll take it away from here. i've got a serious story i want to bring you, and it's a very heartfelt one. a friend of our show here died earlier this week, and wither so sad about that. we're talking about detective steven macdonald. we are taking a live look at this man who was an inspiration of faith to so many i in the new york area and beyond. his funeral precession is now taking place. he is being transported from long title new york city. and that's where his funeral is being held today at 9:00 a.m. at st. patrick's cathedral. now, macdonald -- this is his story -- he was shot on the job with the nypd in central park back in 1986. he was left paralyzed from the
5:40 am
neck down. he forgave the shooter. his son followed in his footsteps. this tuesday steven had a heart attack and lost his life. this is a live picture of that as they come into the city with the family. steven macdonald was 59 years old. and he will be missed. well, good samaritan shoots and kills a suspect who ambushed a police officer, saving that officer's life. the cop in arizona stopping in an accident when a gunman came out of nowhere and opened fire, hitting the officer. but a driver passing by stepped into gun down that suspect. a second driver used the officer's radio to call in for help. >> hello officer down. officer down. come in, please. he's in real bad shape. please send air support. helicopter, please. >> well, that officer is expected to be okay, thanks to that good samaritan. well, doctors warned us and now the super bug is here. it is so powerful that 26 antibiotics don't even affect it. the cdc confirming a drug resistant infection killed a

woman in nevada back in september. she was hospitalized after she contracted bacterial infection while being treated for a broken femur in india. she later died from septic shock. well, russia taking over the headlines and now the airways? possibly. there was a bizarre glitch on c-span yesterday. take a look at this. it goes from the floor of the house of representatives to a broadcast of russian television. watch. >> cop on the block, the scc and literally obliterated -- ♪ >> okay. russian tv. this program running for ten minutes on c-span. c-span said it's now investigating to figure out how this happened. they say it was an internal routing issue but with lots of russian news in the headlines. some are saying maybe it was something else. brian: something else happened later in the day, didn't he? steve: talking about russia. brian: no, there was another hit. another russian thing that happened in the day.
5:42 am
i'm going to look into that. >> what are you talking about? >> where do you find russian cable? ainsley: you get twitter pages that come up. over elevator music. steve: thank you, heather. ainsley: thanks, heather. steve: meanwhile, coming up, senator elizabeth warren striking with dr. ben carson but does she have other motives? we're going to talk to ed henry. good morning to you, sir. brian: and this nfl coach just made history. what he's doing that's never been done before. ♪ ♪ americans - 83% try to eat healthy. yet up 90% fall short in getting key nutrients from food alone. let's do more. add one a day men's complete with key nutrients we may need. plus heart-health support with b vitamins.

5:46 am
sports headlines as ainsley glances at me. a very emotional time for both fans as san diego team leaving at 55 years to go 100 miles to hollywood. and fans are not happy. they are piling up their jerseys and setting them on fire. not even dan fouts is safe. and the los angeles rams newest coach is the youngest in nfl history. he's 18. the team is named sean mcveigh, he's just 30 years old as their head coach as they prepare for a second season in los angeles. mcveigh spent the last six years as an assistant with washington. man, he must be considered a genius. that's a lot of pressure. ainsley: that's awesome. steve: it is. ainsley: good for him. steve: speaking of washington, another fiery change on capitol hill in washington as democrats continue confirmation hearings to slam the incoming trump administration. ainsley: senator elizabeth warren going after ben carson. brian: is that the way ed henry would describe it? he's in washington d.c. hi, ed. >> good morning. you know what's really going on here? she's probably running for president. >> of course.
5:47 am
>> we saw the same deal with cory booker a few days ago. he became the first senator to testify against another sitting senator, jeff sessions, the nominee for attorney general. even though there's videotape of cory booker is as you know about a year ago praising jeff sessions and accepting civil rights award along with sessions. so you see the flip-flops because booker is probably going to run for president as well. and just in the last few moments, by the way, al, democratic senator from minnesota announced that he's going to vote "no" on sessions. but despite booker and other democrats opposing him, he's still very likely to go through, anyway. as is ben carson. elizabeth warren went after him and, look, she wanted to get a headline. she got it. just look at the huffington post, they have a big banner that basically says elizabeth warren asked ben carson if he could promise whether money intended for the poor will not go to donald trump, and he refused. well, that's not exactly what happened. watch.
5:48 am
>> can you just assure us that not one dollar will go to benefit either the president-elect or his family? >> it will not be my intention to do anything to benefit any american. for all americans, everything that we do. >> do i take that to mean that you may manage programs that will significantly benefit the president-elect? >> you can take it to mean that i will manage things in a way that benefits the american people. that is going to be the goal. >> so you can see the context that elizabeth warren wants to pound donald trump about the business interest, fair question, no doubt. but to pin him down and say hud money is going to go to donald trump and benefit him, taxpayer money. and you can see very clearly that ben carson said i'm not going to, you know, push through programs are going to benefit any one american. donald trump or anyone else.
5:49 am
i mean, programs he said that are going to benefit millions of americans. he also added that he's going to bring moral values to his approach there at hud. so that didn't sound like he's going to hand out taxpayer money to donald trump. brian: i've heard a lot of people could you say donald trump for many things. but a lot of people think he came to washington to get rich. he was already rich. >> brian, you should come to washington to get rich. brian: i'm going to come next week. many do. and then we'll see how much money i make. steve: thank you. ainsley: thank you. our next guest nearly lost his life until he ate his way back to health. he's a chef. his name is shane mcmullin. here's his story. next. he's irish. brian: your last name is irish. how irish are you? >> good morning, guys. good to see you this morning. so the fbi director james comey is now the one who's
