brian: i reserved the train. i have all of amtrak. ainsley: i reserved your plane. thank you for letting me borrow it. i'm taking the shuttle. brian brian make sure you gas it up. ainsley: that won't be expensive. brian: where were you yesterday? ainsley: i went to trump tower. sat down for one-on-one exclusive with him. that was great. he told me a lot of information. we asked him right out of the gate about congressman lewis. congressman lewis says he is going to boycott the inauguration. many other congress men and women are actually going to join him on this. when donald trump walked in the door he said how about this. he ended up lying. he said he has never done this before. turns out he heassments listen thas.listen to this apes ains congressman lewis said he doesn't remember. >> how do you forget if you don't go to the inaugurations. i can tell you when i was at the inaugurations. you don't forget something like that. so he got caught. and it's pretty bad and it's making him look bad, frankly.
it's a very important time. this is a transition and a very important transition. and especially because things will be done beautifully but they will be done differently than they have been over the past 8 years. can i say over the past 16 years. they will be different. we have to have a smooth transition. and president obama understands that very well. and that's why he has been so gracious. but he understands that and i think for him to have grandstanded, because i think he just grandstanded john lewis, and then he got caught that very bad lie. so let's see what happens. as far as other people not going, that's okay, because we need seats so badly. i hope they give me their tickets. are they going to give me their tickets or give them to other people. what happens with the tickets? ainsley: would you be willing to sit down with congressman lewis? >> sure, i would be. we are off to a bad start no. question about it. what he did was a very bad thing. not for me. for me it doesn't matter.
did he a bad thing for the country. very divisive. we have a divided country. it's not divided because of me. it's been divided. we have a very divided country. what he did was very, very divisive. steve: speaking of divisive, so far 60 democrats have said we're not going to show up. brian: by the way, ainsley, a lot of them, and steve, is it's not even because of lewis. they don't like donald trump. it's up to 60. among the outlets that says this is wrong to sit out the american process and anti-american to do so is the biggest critic of donald trump outside maybe the "new york times." new york daily news in their editorial today. you may not like him, you may disagree with him, but you have to show up. ainsley: agree. so now from here on out every time there is a republican president the democrats shouldn't show up and every time there is a democrat no republicans show up? how did we get to this point? hillary clinton is going to be there. i thought that was extremely classy of her.
brian: every u.s. senator from the most liberal to the most moderate. every democrat will be there what is going on in the house. it's just an excuse not to show up. democrats should realize raising money doesn't win you elections. didn't you learn anything from the last round? steve: with lewis he said he didn't think trump was a legitimate president. a number of people say we don't like the way russia helped trump through weeks. they don't like that. wait until the next story we do about bradley manning. ainsley: he said he was willing to sit down with congressman lewis. and then steve harvey is getting all this backlash. i watched an interview with him. he said i'm really hurt about all the people come out against me for sitting down with the president. do we want to fix the problems? then we have got to talk about it and work together. steve: apparently there are a punch of performers they have not announced for the inaugural celebrations on friday night because they didn't want the blow back a ahead of time a bunch of stars are going to be there friday night. brian: what about the circus they have nothing else to do? ainsley: we have got to get
our tickets. brian: that what was number one topic. what else. ainsley: i was rattling them off. you don't have much time with him. we talked about obama care. we talked about the wall. a lot of people want to know how we're going to pay for it. is there going to be a wall? listen to what he said. >> when i said we're not going to get reimbursed for the wall, wait a minute, we'll build a wall and mexico reimburse us. headlines trump is not going -- what's this all about? i could wait. in order to get the wall started this which we could do sooner than to get the deal we have to do it this way. so we are going to have a wall, mexico, in some form, mexico is going to reimburse us for that wall and everybody is going to be happy and we'll stop the drugs from coming in and we're going to stop people from coming in who are doing, in some cases, some tremendous harm. but i have to say this, we're going to have a tremendous, beautiful, big door in that wall. ainsley: he said he is not going to separate families. so many people are worried
about that. is he going to let the good folks stay, the criminals. steve: but there will be a wall. ainsley: there will be a wall. brian: what you just said is interesting. because one of the big debates for immigration is there a pathway to citizenship? most part he has couched it. let's worry about the criminals first and security border second and then we'll worry about the people here. if he tells you the people here are going to be able to stay with their families, there is a pathway to citizenship. ainsley: he says i will have a heart when it comes to making these decisions. we have got so much more of that interview. more of it coming up in 25 minutes. we will play it throughout the morning. we talk about some fun things too about what his speech is going to be like, the first night in the white house and that kind of thing. steve: speaking of heart, is that the reason why president obama pardoned, gave clemency to when he weighs the leaker he was bradley manning now she is known as chelsea manning, the transgender ex-army intel analyst sentenced to the 35 years in leavenworth. brian: he is getting out in
may. steve: looks like it, after seven years. a lot of people are saying it is completely inappropriate. that man, woman is a traitor. he. ainsley: mike baker was on "fox & friends first" this morning saying this guy she i should say now is responsible for the death of individuals by leaking information about our military, other countries get that information and people have died as a result. brian: our reputation as an army because of this clown released information, top secret information because he weighs depressed while serving downloads in iraq and afghanistan war logs and got half baked video out there that made it look like our guys were out there indiscriminately killing iraqis and afghanys and got people in jeopardy. and when our informants in afghanistan in particular had their identities outed, there was a mass killing spree by the taliban inside afghanistan. this was an outrage it began
in 2010 it was exposed. it was headed over to wikileaks. wikileaks became a national, international scourge and name and really gave birth to them after that edward snowden uses them as a dump and after that we all know what happened with wikileaks. yet, it didn't seem to matter to barack obama yesterday and it raised bipartisan outrage. listen. >> i think he's dead wrong. absolutely dead wrong. this is treason, espionage at the highest level. what the private manning done, what chelsea did is absolutely found guilty 35 year sentence. should basically serve that sentence out. >> chelsea manning pleaded guilty to very serious crimes leaking highly classified information. it put at risk the lives of our troops and our diplomats, our intelligence officers, allies that helped us around the world it caused serious national security harm. what president obama has done today is going to cause harm as well. >> i'm really surprised that the president took this action and i have concerns about what message we send about
ultimately revealing a sensitive national security document. brian: in case you think this political bi play the u.s. government confirmed this material that was leaked out by bradley/chelsea manning was found in bin laden''s ware. >> ainsley: he is giving clemency to bradley manning or chelsea manning. the democrats are complaining about rebel wikileaks turning this election in donald's favor. brian: a need for intelligence not to be shared. steve: i wrote this down. a prominent blogger wrote this giving classified information to wikileaks is good as long as it only endangers national security and not democrat careers. brian: fantastic. so we know he is replenishing the enemy by releasing these terrorists from gitmo and telling everyone in the intelligence community the stuff that you have doesn't matter that much.
good combination on exit interview. like high school senior never these worry about high school again but we are stuck in high school we have to deal with what you are doing. ainsley: doing what promises to do this good be goodening for him. steve: look for more commutations probably bowe bergdahl. >> great job on that interview on the president-elect. goofed to sigh guys this morning. we want to get right to that fox news. breaking overnight, former president george h.w. bush hospitalized in texas. the 92-year-old is being treated in houston methodist hospital after experiencing shortness of breath. bush's office saying it was precautionary move and he is resting comfortably. he has dealt with several recent health initials recent years. we will bring you any updates on his condition as we get them. also this morning a suspected cop killer is in custody after a 9-day manhunt. orlando police capturing keith lloyd locking him up with the handcuffs with the stheargt he murdered lloyd.

♪ he. >> donald trump not only won he redrew the political map. how did the president-elect do it and what does it mean for the country going forward? here to break this down is the elections analyst with real clear politics is david bill o'reilly. >> goopolitics is -- -- david byler. you look at it county by county. >> yeah. so this map, a lot of red, a lot of blue. tells the basic story of the election. essentially you have hillary clinton and the democrats winning in a lot of urban centers in places like new york or boston. steve: hillary is blue. is he red. >> yes, yes. you have her winning in urban centers and. so racially diverse areas like the southwest has a lot of latino voters. eivel.
steve: let's go into the south. >> in the south is where some of the most important trends are what you have seen in the south the last two decades is critical voters shifting from democrats towards republicans. you see that in coal country here. sort of southern west virginia, eastern kentucky. you see that in this part of oklahoma. essentially some of the things that we have been seeing is a long-term trend where rural and small town white voters have moved sharply to the right over the last 20 years. steve: okay. >> that's been really important for donald trump. that trend out in the west. but the flip side of that trend is that democrats do really well in cities. so, some of these states like noible. steve: like denver. >> i just helped you. >> yeah. exactly. around denver and this whole sea shape in colorado is one good example. las vegas. nevada is another good example where democrats have been able to win in big cities. that helped them out in the west. but republican strength in these rural areas has really helped them a lot.
when it comes to the northeast and the midwest. that's -- those are really the key areas for donald trump to win. steve: one more. >> sorry about that. my fault. in the northeast what you will see in pennsylvania here is hillary clinton wins in pittsburgh. she wins in philadelphia. but this big sort of rural red part in the middle goes for trump. that gives him the margin he needs to win the state that ultimately got him over the top to 270 electoral votes. steve: i think we have one more map, right? >> yes. this is one more important map. steve: what was that? >> this is the most important map the midwest. you see essentially these rural areas in wisconsin. all around minneapolis and minnesota. all through iowa in ohio and appalachian area over in the southwest region. awful these areas have a lot of working class white voters who previously might have liked the democrat candidates like bill clinton but have since moved right and that is a big part of why trump was able to win. i will. steve: indeed. the interesting thing about it
when you look at the whole country it's pretty clear that the way donald trump won was he won more counties by a lot. >> yeah. he won a lot of areas that were just outside of sort of these urbanized cores. steve the blue is her the red is him. thank you very much. interesting stuff. >> thanks for having me. steve: president obama chelsea manning after leaked documents. what do soldiers? pete hegseth is here next. march. woman's group banned from participating. the reason will have you seeing red. ♪ but you want to say no ♪ when you don't want me no more ♪ amily tree, i discovered a woman named marianne gaspard.

years. you- pete: checks owe social boxes the not bradley now chelsea. he said he did it because he was troubled in iraq. it's just the lawlessness. saints. ainsley: that's why you are saying that's why he commuted. pete: nice social cause help chelsea. he. ainsley: mike baker this morning was on fox he is an ex-cia agent and he said this guy or this girl i should say is responsible for the death of americans by releasing information about our military to other countries. pete: of course. i wouldn't release one document, let alone 700,000. and he did it because he wanted to expose supposed war crimes as you said some fuzzy video he is, some difficult situations where our guys make decisions on a split second. is he indicting him in the court of public opinion. making the wars more difficult to prosecute. brian: bay the way it raids the profile of wikileaks. we didn't know what it was it caused damage to hillary clinton's state department. she had to go around

finishes school at least. >> yes. ainsley: will they be there friday night your first night in the white house? will your whole family be there. >> yeah. all of my children will be in the white house which is sort of a tradition they say the first night you have your family there. but ivanka, don, eric, tiffany, they are all going to be in the white house. and it will be very exciting. there is something very special about that building. every time you walk in it it's just something so incredible about the white house. ainsley: not many people get the opportunity to say they are the president of the united states of america. >> no. it's very humbling i will tell you. ainsley: i'm sure. do you think about your parents? >> i do. my parents were great. i had great parents and loving parents. my father was a strong guy. actually, my mother was at least equally as strong but a lot of people didn't quite understand that. but she was strong but good. both good, great hearts and great parents. ainsley: i want to ask your about your inauguration speech. you have prepared your speech. >> yes. ainsley: you have practiced? what's the first line?
>> well, i have prepared it well the first line is thanking everybody, all of the presidents and including, by the way, president obama and michelle who have been absolutely nice. melania has spent time with michelle and it was great. and ivanka the other day spoke to her. the conversation was going to be a quick conversation. it lasted an hour. and they got along great. and so i am just thanking president obama. and i'm thanking his very lovely wife because they have been so gracious. we're going to have a tremendous time. from what i'm hearing the numbers are going to be astronomical. ainsley: there are congresswomen who have decided not to show up and be there. what was your reaction when congressman lewis started this. >> well what he said he has never done it before but he has. he has done it before because he did it with he president bush 43. and he did it on the same basis. he said he is not our president or something thereabouts.
and that's a very bad misrepresentation. so, let's see what happens. as far as other people not going, that's okay because we need seats so bad lid. i hope they give n.i.e. me their tickets are they going to give me their tickets or give them to other people: what's going to happen to their tickets? i hope they give me their tickets. ainsley: what about the celebrities that are pulling out. >> many of the celebrities that are saying that are not going were never invited. i don't want the celebrities. i want the people. we have the biggest celebrities in the world there. ainsley: you. you. >> well, i won't say that but we have the biggest and president obama. and president obama. ainsley: how about designers that say they don't want to dress your wife. did she ask tom ford. >> never asked tom ford. doesn't like tom ford. doesn't like his designs. tom ford is an example, i will not dress the first lady. he was never asked to dress. steve wynn just called me and he thought it was so terrible what tom ford said that he threw his clothing out of his las vegas hotel. i'm not a fan of tom ford,
never have been. ainsley: i have heard smaller parade, fewer balls, why is that? >> they had 10, 12 balls. we have one ball. i think it's 25,000 people and they are going to be bigger. who wants to have like 10 different bails. so, we did fewer. everything sold out. you can't get a ticket. but, in fact, my biggest problem is you can't get tickets to any of this stuff. it's impossible. i was told sovment dress shops in washington you can't get a dress anymore. it's like they are just -- it's just going to be an amazing weekend. it's going to be something special. and you will have crowds that they have rarely seen before. ainsley: what about twitter?g to tweet? >> yeah. look, i don't like tweeting. i have other things i could be doing. but i get very dishonest media very dishonest press. and it's my only way that i can counter act. ainsley: cia john brennan
responded to your twitter. you questioned whether or not he might be the leaker. he is saying no he is not the leaker. what's your response? >> look, i accept it but it came out of some place and it's fake news. it's all fake news. can i say something about george washington. can i say something about abraham lincoln. i can say something about you. just fake news. and they shouldn't have been a part of it they should not have been a part of it because it's made up, never existed, never happened. and the reason i say that so strongly because nothing is ever going to show up. there is never going to be a tape that shows up. there is never going to be anything that shows up. i would be very embarrassed if a tape showed up. i would be doublely embarrassed. there is no tape. there was no event. i was never in that room for that period of time. they have made stuff up and it started with the republican party whether they tried to beat me in the nomination and then it went on the democrats -- the democrats took over that work, supposedly.
and by the intelligence giving it credence, a little bit of credence by talking about it, it was very inappropriate. i don't know hot leaker was, i have no idea. it's fake news. ainsley: press briefing room, are you going to move it. >> we are going to move it you have to explain it, we had a lot of people showing up for press conferences, et cetera, including briefings. the room is too small. we said we are going to move it to a larger room nearby area but not the same area. the press went crazy i said let's not move it some people in the press will not be able to get in. it's just too many. we will make sure you get a seat. but there is too many people for this small room. ainsley: especially now adays with bloggers and radio. >> we have so many people that want to go. we have to pick the people that go into the room. i'm sure other people will be thrilled about that. we offered a much larger room because we need a much larger ream and we offered to do that but they went crazy. they will be begging for a
much larger room very soon. you watch. ainsley: did you see the impersonators standing in for you they were in the military. we interviewed them this morning and said is there in any advice for mr. trump. >> he said watch your step he tripped. steve: he wouldn't be the first person to tell the president to watch his step. ralph lauren is going to be dressing melania. ainsley: who wouldn't that task? she beautiful lady. that would be such an honor even if you don't agree with the politics. brian: one the nicest people you are going to talk to very nice. a mom first. just hawps to be international supermodel. one thing about, this one thing about donald trump he never has he to be in danger of tripping. he is an athlete. he never really looks out of place in these public settings. he has been there before. is he not going to be nervous about it i have think is he going tomorrow brace these moments. ainsley: was it you telling me

"sports illustrated" write his or her plays with him. nobody compares to him. take that eisenhower. steve: or barack obama who played 8450 times this year. brian: great job. we are going to hear more. steve: all right. meanwhile. ainsley: well, we all love janice dean, right? you have to seat cutest weather caster ever. >> now why did you want to be a weather kid? >> because i wanted to be on tv again. >> you look very sharp by the way. >> those girls are thinking. >> anybody you want to say hello too today. >> i wants to say hello to my lord savior jesus christ. >> we might as well do the weather. >> we might as well. 72 in charlotte. 68 in raleigh. and where i live, liberty, it's only 63.

than the last eight years. brian: all these ceos feel they have to listen to the president or are they just being deferential to the president-elect. >> i think they understand there is a p.r. opportunity here. he has a great platform. they know that if they are saying things that appeal to the american public, he can help them get that word out. the risk is they become deferential. they don't want to do that. they want to serve customers. he has a platform that the president hasn't give them for a very long time. do you differentiate for military contractors being called out over overcharging and private companies being told to bring their manufacturing back? >> i do. because, look, this is something that is within his sphere of influence. boeing, these are the kind of things that he has decision-making rights. he ought to be pressing these guys. when you are talking about private companies, they are not his. is he not a shareholder. he can certainly create a space for them to do business, to earn money, to make a live living to help employ people. he has to be careful because these aren't his businesses. boeing is more in his sphere
of influence. brian: you have seen when you talk about the dollar we need a weaker dollar that actually hurt of the market when he talks about certain companies, it hurts their stock. i think he probably realizes all this. what message are we getting? >> he has to thread carefully there because he doesn't want to be moving markets in that wait a minute his job is to help create an environment that works for everybody. where the dollar goes is going to depend on a lot of the different things. he shouldn't be pushing that. create space to let businesses all across the sector says we can make money and do business here. brian: cars get more expensive if wal-mart, going to hurt the lower class more than it will the middle or yo upper class. >> they can he affect those not well off. brian: i trump and economics. >> i'm happy to teach it. brian: thanks so much. coming up straight ahead, garth brooks made headlines -- i will look back here -- when he turned down the invitation to perform at donald trump's inauguration. now we know why.

ainsley: that is so cool that really hit me though. steve: somebody is going to do that and say the guy on tv told me to do it. ainsley: not smart for us to announce exactly where we will be. do you know when i was the kid the mall the water there was frozen and we were there on a trip with my father's basketball team all of my family members and all the kids owe -- coach's kids i was wearing swabagos were slick on the bottom getting out on the ice and ice skating. that's how awesome america is i get to go to the inauguration with you. steve: not only that years later you would become the host of "fox & friends" and sit down with the president-elect. ainsley: so cool. i'm so grateful. that's awesome. you have all done this before. like you have gone to the inaugurations and interviewed a lot of presidents. this is so new for me. steve: believe me, so many people are excited. i have been getting messages for the last four weeks where people say one month #making america great again. one week now i'm getting two days. brian: here is the difference this time, steve. we interviewed donald trump
before we went to the inaugural last time now is he going to be at the inaugural and you talked to him yesterday. ainsley: you all interviewed him like a reality show host and now he is going to be president. brian: political commentator he weighed in every monday or tuesday for about five years. he. ainsley: we sat down with him at trump tower for exclusive interview and here is what he had to say. ainsley: congressman lewis is saying that he didn't remember that he skipped that inauguration. >> he conveniently doesn't remember. howe do you forget if you go to an inauguration. can i tell you when i was at the inaugurations. you don't forget something like that. so he got caught. and it's pretty bad and it's making him look bad frankly transition and very important transition. and especially because things will be done beautifully but they will be done differently than they have been past 8 years. can i say over the last 16 years. they will be different. we have to have a smooth transition.
and president obama understands that very well and that's why he has been gracious. he understands that more grandstand. he just grandstanded john lewis. and then he got caught in a very bad lie. so let's see what happens. as far as other people not going, that's okay. because we need seats so badly. i hope they give me their tickets are they going to give me their tickets or giving them to other people. what happens to their tickets? ainsley: would you be willing to sit down with congressman lewis? >> sure, i would be. you know, it's just we're off to a bad start. there's no question about it. what he did was a very, very bad thing. not for me, for me it doesn't matter. he did a bad thing for the country. very, very decisive. we have a divided country. and it's not divided because of me. it's been divided. buff we have a very divided country. and what he did was very, very divisive. steve: we have a divided house, at least 60 democrats are now planning on doing
something else at noon on friday. brian: it's happening. you know, it turns out some people say well, i'm going to stand behind congressman lewis because i don't like to tweet back. congressman lewis decided he was illegitimate president. i think people are missing the point and i hope they get it you have no problem going against john mccain he is a war hero. it doesn't matter what you did. that doesn't diminish what you did in the 60's, congressman lewis. what you are doing now has nothing though do with what you did then. it doesn't make you immune for people to say it's inappropriate for you to stab an election that the president of the united states says was legitimate. chief of staff says legitimate. that the new york daily news who hates donald trump put a picture of him as a clown, they say you are even wrong to sit out. it hurts the country for you to stand down. ainsley: listen, i don't think middle america really cares because they call them the swamp. the washington swamp. that's why they voted for donald trump to get those folks out, to get the people that have been in washington forever, making the same decisions and using taxpayer money the wrong way, they
don't care if those congressman men and women don't come to the inauguration. they are excited about having him as their president. brian: most are in districts where they are not worried about their seat. the ones that are worried about their seats are going to show up because donald trump turned a lot of blue seats red. steve: no u.s. senators are going to miss it. it's just house members. and we're going to have some more. we asked folks yesterday if they had questions for donald trump and you actually went into the bonus round and asked him a bunch of them. ainsley: i did. thank you so much for sending in your questions. we picked three questions that were very important, good questions that you all sent in. and we sat down at the tail end of the interview he said okay time is up or his people said time is up. i said can we ask a few viewer questions. he said of course i will stay for that. so he answered your questions. steve: so for the past few months we have been hearing how bad wikileaks is. they gave that -- from the russians and trump has got contempt for the intel community.
yesterday barack obama in the 11th hour a gesture which is complete kick in the teeth of the intel community actually commuted the sentence of the most famous wikileaker of them all, chelsea manning. brian: when he was bradley manning he decided feeling a little depressed he released all these documents that were never meant for international eyes out to the general public. so value i can' valuable were tn laden requested them and they were found in bin laden's compound when he was killed. according to catherine herridge and i will paraphrase, after these became public, and our informants were exposed inside afghanistan, there was a massive killing spree on everyone or anyone who might have matched the description. and we had a heck of a time trying to get sources within the -- where the war was raging in both afghanistan and iraq after that. ainsley: she said they were looking for someone with dark hair. steve: kill everybody. ainsley: kill everyone with
dark hair. many people are saying that is chelsea meang-chelsea manning is responsible for. this mike barrick ex-cia operative who was on "fox & friends first" he said she is responsible for the death of americans by releasing other secrets. steve: there is no doubt. and there is the immanuel of bradley manning early on now chelsea manning who is sitting in the men's department at fort leavenworth in kansas. she is a traitor. and the "new york post" says it best. obama let as traitor go free, spring a leak. this is anger. you have democrats and i republicans. a lot of people are dispointsd. listen. >> i think he is dead wrong, absolutely dead wrong. this is treason espionage at the highest level. what private manning does, what chelsea did absolutely found guilty 35 year sentence should full out that sentence, should basically serve that sentence out. >> chelsea manning pleaded
guilty to serious crimes leaking highly classified information that put at risk the lives of our troops and our diplomats and our intelligence officers, allies who have helped us around the world it caused serious national security harm. and what president obama has done today is going to cause harm as well. >> i'm really surprised that the president took this action and i have concerns about what message we send about ultimately revealing sensitive national security documents. brian: secretary of defense ash --ash carter feels the same. i outraged at the julian assange and all of this and edward snowden can't come home but the person who started it all the private, by the way, who got access to material he or she should never have gotten access to releases everything, puts all of our sources in doubt and massive embarrassment to the state department. people died because of it and on his exit interview they say in a conference call yesterday manning gets his commutation because he accepted responsibility for the crimes and expressed remorse. really?
hey, everybody in prison watching right now why know where the number one show in prison. steve: we are? brian: absolutely. just grab your cup, put it against the bars start screaming i accept responsibility and then wait for them to let you out. steve: have you been watching too many episodes of oz. brian: or lock it up. they do have metal cups. steve: we asked you what you thought and you responded. ainsley: chelsea manning is still a traitor. i can't believe our president is allowing her to go free. brian: by the way he is also replenishing the enemy by letting the terrorists go back to saudi arabia. joseph releasing manning disgraces our nation and allies does the president of the united states really want that as his legacy? i could answer, yes. steve: aberrantly parity of -- also steven emailed is it just me or has the president done more to help criminals than the veterans of our nation? >> let us know firstname.lastname@example.org or
facebook or tweet. ainsley: we're also thinking about president george h.w. bush this morning is he in the hospital. abby has more about that this morning. abby: we start this morning with the fox news alert. all eyes are on this story former president h.w. bush hospitalized in houston. spokesman jim mcgrapth telling fox news president bush was taken there on saturday after experiencing shortness of breath. mcgraph says the 92-year-old is responding well to treatment and they do hope that he can come home. of course, we will bring you the very latest updates as we get them. also this overnight, a suspected cop killer is in custody after a nine day manhunt. orlando police arresting mar keith lloyd. same hand cuffs of the officer he murdered. found inside an empty home armored and wearing body armor. and to another fox news alert. a trio of earthquakes rattling illustrationly felt all the way in rome.

ainsley: this is a fox news alert. president obama under fire this morning for a series of controversial last-minute clemency decisions including order for early release of chelsea manning the officer who released classified documents to wikileaks. brian: all right. so what does incoming -- what does the incoming trump administration think about that move? let's ask kellyanne conway senior advisor to president-elect trump. i think you have heard that before. kellyanne what was the president's reaction good morning to you. >> good morning. brian: whats president's reaction to the original massive leaker bradley/chelsea manning's commutation. >> that is very ironic. the president-elect and i talked about it yesterday. let me speak for me. it's very ironic that you would have somebody who imperiled national security tom cotton said it so well yesterday put our security and intelligence officers and others at risk compared to everybody's head being on fire
for how many months about wikileaks documents that elm bare arrested the democrats and, of course, hillary clinton since her staffers were questioning her judgment and the idea that she couldn't find her voice, had to focus group dozens and dozens to find out who she is and why she was running. i do find partisan politics at its worse. that this -- the way that we treated somebody or the way we look at leaking really depends on whose ox is being gored. a 35 year sentence sudden not have been taken lightly. not like he got a slap on the wrist. i don't think anybody should be equating it to general cartwright who i had one count of lying to the fbi really to protect national security. not to compromise it. steve: you know what? kellyanne later today barack obama is going to have his final press conference. if you were a member of the press and not a member of donald trump's inner circle, what's the question you would ask barack obama regarding chelsea manning? >> oh, i would actually ignore
chelsea manning. perhaps if i need to ask a question i would say exactly what i just did say which is why are you cherry picking what leaks are important and which leaks are not important depending on the leaker and depending on the content that was leaked. how can we look the other way. chelsea manning's documents -- the documents that chelsea manning had acquired were found on usama bin laden's computer as you will remember. that tells you how sloppy this was and tells how important it was and tells you what a great threat it was. i would ask him why on the altar of national security and intelligence we would be so cavalier at the moment. i would actually just ask the president, president obama yes, you're going out with these approval ratings but big deal, why have race relations according to all polls worsened to many people? why do many people feel like the country is more united but divided. why are you leaving unfib finished business including a divided country. when you took office 8 years
ago all the polls showed such optimism of coming together. it's donald trump inaugural address this friday and beyond as president is actually going to make a big attempt through his solutions and through his words to unify a divided country. ainsley: yeah, well, yesterday when i was talking to him he said it's not helping that all these congresswomen and men are not coming to the nawrgs. it doesn't hurt him. he doesn't care. it's going to open up more seats. he says it hurts the country and that's what he cares about. >> i agree completely anszly. there is no question, these are representatives. what does that mean? that means they have been elected to be a voice for the people and conduit to their constituents about what is going on in washington with the new administration. what better way to start that conversation than to attend the 58th inaugural and show that cohesiveness, that unity. look, i give enor mus credit to president obama and first lady michelle obama. they have been incredibly gracious and magnanimous and helpful to the first lady and the president bush and
mrs. bush is coming president 41 i hope is he fine. i know he has been hospitalized. he sent a wonderful note to the president-elect. brian: did he? wow. >> everyone should follow that lead. brian: kellyanne stick around. coming up after this break. we are going to sell pillows. when did mixing food, with not food, become food? thankfully at panera, 100% of our food is 100% clean. no artificial preservatives, sweeteners, flavors, or colors. panera. food as it should be.
ainsley: what about twitter? are you going to continue to we did the. >> yeah. look. i don't like tweeting. i have other things i could be doing. but i get very dishonest media, very dishonest press. and it's my only way that i can counter act. like, for instance, when john lewis said, you know, he has never done it before where he skipped an inauguration, well, he has. it turned out to be a lie. i'm able to say that if the press were honest, which it's
not, i would absolutely not use twitter. i wouldn't have to. ainsley: so kellyanne that was the sit down yesterday with donald trump over at trump tower. he was talking about twitter a lot. he is saying he has 50 million followers between facebook and twitter. no matter what network you work for, you are never going to get that many viewers. it's an opportunity for him to have a great direct message. steve: unfiltered. >> exactly the way he ran his campaign and won. brilliant communicator i have ever seen in politics or otherwise. so he will continue that because the american people want information immediately. you know, ainsley, i call this the democratization of information. you get cable stations at the same time. you don't need someone to filter it for you. it's donald trump you directly it costs you absolutely nothing. i hope the president-elect will tweet about last night's just amazing event here in washington, d.c.
he came down answered flew down for this chairman's global dinner. our chairman of the exarn put together 200 members of the diplomatic core where had you ambassadors other diplomats, ministers and to a person they were so excited and grateful to be included in a dinner that really sets a nice tone for the international community and the way that this president immediately will be reaching out to many different countries and their leaders to try to broker a more healthy conversation about our relations worldwide. brian: i'm very curious with all the nominees throughout with massive hearings it's hard to keep up with all of them there is a spirit of contention with some of them. for example, betsy devos yesterday, as she tries to become the next education secretary, listen to this. >> will you be providing this committee with three years of tax returns? >> do you think if you were not a multibillionaire, if you or family had not made hundreds of millions of dollars of contributions to the republican party that you
would be sitting here today? >> ms. devos your family has a long history of supporting lbgt causes. >> do you still believe in conversion chemotherapy. >> senator franken, i have never believed in that. steve: the democrats hate her because, you know, they are supported by the teacher's unions and they are terrified that some of those jobs could go away if american parents had choice. >> what is the worse thing that could possibly come out of our department of education that more children who deserve an education who should be able to escape their zip code which essentially is how it is decided right now where they go to school and what is taught there in the charter school movement school choice, home schooling, alternatives to conventional public education which work, we have two of our four children in public school certainly. these are just alternatives because you can't have a one size fits all structure. and, of course, president-elect trump ran successfully on repealing common core. it was one of his biggest applause lines nearly
everywhere he campaigned. people do not believe that the federal government should be telling us what is taught in the classroom. you can't uproot and the judgment of local officials and indeed parents themselves which when it comes to children's education. this idea of humiliating and tries to embarrass qualified men and women who wish to serve this nation is reprehensible. not one child who needs a better education benefited from any of those incendiary questions yesterday. but, of course, mrs. devos held herself with the grace and he will against that we know her to have. brian: al franken begging for second round of questions so vimentsly important. no one else on the obama administration secretary of defense didn'the owe bombsecreta second round. among the people find his eble find candidacy troubling is senator schumer. they find his investments in medical device stock very troubling and some are saying that he should pull back.
what else your reaction reaction? >> my reaction is a great piece in national review this morning i would will will will he will he will he will he will he will will he will he will viewers to reevmentd tom price is a man who has earned a great living in his life. he apparently has been a very successful man outside of government and a shrewd investor. he has these investments apparently are just a fraction of his overall portfolio and they were done by a broker. it's not like he is out there dealing in things with which he will have dominion. and, by the way, this is another example of just trying to embarrass and humiliate an otherwise imminently qualified nominee. i will tell you that this comes down to hundreds, if not a few thousand dollars and you really can't pay that money to get into a chuck schumer fundraiser. you can't get anywhere near the guy for that kind of chump change. and so i would just remind everybody when you see these crazy headlines go and look at the facts. tom price knows obama care and
the i will effects that the affordable care act has had on many americans. some rely upon it but many others have been left without healthcare with their premiums skyrocketing and their choice and quality and access having been diminished. we're going to change that we are going to allow americans to buy health insurance across state lines the way they by other services. people have will have health insurance savings account. intimate traction that they have on a dale buy basis. of course block grant to the states. those who have need through the medicaid program are closer to the people and see where the needs are get rid of that fraud, waste and abuse that is so rife in our system. brian: the rumor is this is the first time that he is really battling, the president-elect with the speaker of the house because he wants an immediate replacement and congress doesn't see need for immediate replacement. >> some in congress do. senator rand paul has been out there quite vocally that he thinks that you can under a must repeal and replace
obamacare in quick succession. the president-elect at his press conference a week ago, brian, reminded it can happen on the same day, hour, week, month, it depends on how best to executed. this is donald trump. so every project is going to happen very quickly if it can. his goal is to repeal and replace in quick succession. there have been now noe feweriny republicans over the years. the replacement mechanisms are there and replacement pieces are there. it's just a matter what makes most sense given i think how corrosive and how much of a failure some of this legislation has been seven years after it passed for many americans. there is a lot to uproot and fix here. is he going to get right to work. ainsley: i am glad you found a dress last week and next week because donald trump said all stores in washington sold out. we have a picture from you last night. you looked beautiful. i loved the one shoulder. >> thank you. >> ainsley: thanks, kellyanne. we will see you down in washington. >> 29 minutes before the top of the hour. straight ahead.
with dr. scholls massaging gel insoles. they're proven to give you comfort. which helps you feel more energized ...all day long. i want what he has. ains this is a fox news alert. president obama dramatically reduces the prison sentence of chelsea manning, the army intelligence analyst convicted of leaking classified information to wikileaks did face 35 years behind bars for her crime. well, now she is going to be released in just a few months after serving seven years. brian: here to react arkansas senator and former army ranger and congressman tom cotton. senator, this is outrageous to even the secretary of defense of barack obama. what about for you? >> it's very disappointing. and it's very dangerous as well, brian. chelsea manning committed grave crimes against our national security leaking reports from the field of people who cooperated with american troops and diplomats
and intelligence officers. we know that usama bin laden himself was interested in some of the reports that were leaked. and looking ahead, this is not just something that is bad from historical standpoint, but we depend on the cooperation of people all around the world. sometimes that cooperation has to occur in secret. now that they know that an american president is willing to commute the sentence of someone who shared such information publicly, they're probably going to think twice before they are willing to cooperate with the america in future. that's bad. steve: for the last couple of months though, senator, we have been hearing how bad wikileaks is, all that stuff about donald trump and russia, it's terrible. and now this president, who has said donald trump has no respect for the intel community is kicking the intel community in the teeth because is he springing the biggest leaker: >> that's well said. maybe barack obama's official position on wikileaks is bad when it embarrasses democrats and good when undermines national security. but there's no doubt, also, that this is demoralizing for our intelligence community and our military. i can't imagine that anyone in the military chain of commands
or the intelligence community supported president obama's decision to commute the sentence of chelsea manning who would have been eligible for parole in just a few years anunder the ordinary processes in military justice. it's very disappointing and very harmful to our national security going forward. ainsley: senator, what message does this send to other leakers to edward snowden and julian assange. are they trying to get back here to america so they can get pardoned? >> it sends a very bad message to those individuals anyone else thinking about violating our national security laws. they are in place for a reason. our country depends on the protection of classified information, the protection of identified at this of people who work with us. and for a president to adopt a cause celeb for no sound reason of national security or criminal justice encourages people who want to take that kind of action outside of the law. this is going to be very harmful forever our troops and diplomats and intelligence officers who are around the world trying to get people to work with us.
brian: wow, we just lost the feed. steve: we did. brian: that senator uniquely qualified. senator, we want you to finish your thought. it's a bad message. real quick, what is the message of the 60-plus members of the democratic side of the house who were sitting out the inauguration to boycott donald trump? what's that message? >> well, it's very disappointing. it's very divisive. donald trump won fair and square. he was legitimately elected and he's going to be the president on friday. i understand some democrats don't like that. i wasn't enthusiastic when barack obama won 8 years ago or reelected four years ago but we should be working together to solve some of the country's problems. i would urge them all to reconsidering and come to the inauguration and celebrate the peaceful transfer of power even if they don't like who is taking the office. steve: maybe they are not showing up because it's supposed to have a big rain. >> if it's raining that hard i bet there will be a lot of people boycotting.
if it ain't raining, we ain't training. brian: absolutely. thank you so much, senator. >> thank you. brian: senator's back ground is he in ivy league school not only does he join the military after 9/11, he goes in to the infantry. that's why he becomes congressman and senator his age amazing guy. ainsley: we appreciate him coming on this morning. we all love janice dean. have you ever seen this little kid? he is so cute and he is going to do the weather. >> why did you want to be the weather kid? >> because i wanted to be on tv again. i want to say hello to my lord and savior jesus christ, my parents, pretty much everybody out there. >> you look mighty sharp by the way. >> you. those girls are thinking got challenge. and where i live, liberty, it's going to be 63. tomorrow's temperatures. brian: that's 9-year-old charlie warren he went viral after appearing on that weather segment, van's weather kids on fox 8 in north carolina. you will meet him again next. ainsley: now is he going national. charles is in the weather

steve: yeah, what is going on here. perfectly summarize that. ainsley: on the northeast in north carolina you wanted to thank someone. he said i want to say hello to jesus. he is so cute. steve: he was adorable. and we had to bring him on so there you have charlie. meanwhile. ainsley: we have mother of the exclusive interview with the president-elect. that's coming up next. we are asking him your questions. you sent in some questions and he answered them ♪ ♪ swing, swing advil liqui - gels work so fast you'll ask what bad back? what pulled hammy? advil liqui - gels make pain a distant memory nothing works faster stronger or longer what pain? advil.

we will get private insurance companies to take care of a lot of people that can afford it that's going to take a tremendous burden off. they will have plans that are great plans. that's very important. ainsley: great one about the military. stefanie says most veterans from the infantry were brought back from the war in last 8 years with no help to transition. many are medicating themselves. ask them greatest desire it to fight again for this country couldn't consider a program to help them get clean, thereby allowing them to rejoin the infantry? >> i think we can. that's a big problem. medicating themselves is exactly what's happening. not only with the military by the way but the whole country. one of the reasons we have a strong border is the drugs are pouring across, heroin is pouring across the border like you wouldn't believe. we are going to have the border. trump was just playing games, is he just having fun. oh, we are having a wall. a wall is going to be bills. ainsley: are we paying for it. >> so when i said we are going to get reimbursed for the wall they said trump is not keeping his promise. wait a minute, we're going to build a wall.
mexico is going to reimburse us and headlines trump is not -- what's this all about? now, i could wait but in order to get the wall started, which we're going to do sooner than we can do the deal, we have to do it this way. so we're going to have a wall, mexico in some form, mexico is going to reimburse us for that wall. and everybody is going to be happy. we're going to stop the drugs from coming in. ainsley: one last question from a viewer. carolyn says will you consider creating a legal status to work for noncriminal undocumented citizens brought here as children? my son-in-law is one of these. he supports your wall. he has said many times that he would rather have been brought here legally or not at all. he doesn't want any more children subjected to this life of fear. >> i understand that. and we're working on a plan right now. and that plan over the next two to three months is going to come out. and it's a plan that's going to be very firm but it's going to be a lot of heart. and we're going to be looking into that situation. that's a very tough situation. but i think they're going to end up being very happy. we're going to have great
people coming into our country. people that love our country. and we're also going to have people come in to our country merit-based. you look at silicon valley. they can't get -- somebody graduates number one in their class from harvard and they get thrown out of the country. we're going to have great people and people of great talent coming in to our country. we're going to have also merit-based. and that's so important. we don't have that right now. and if you can think of this, some of the silicon valley companies want to build up in canada because in canada, they are able to get the people that they need. and they can't get them in this country because we don't allow them in this country. so we're going to take a lot of situations. and we're going to have a lot of heart. believe me. it's going to be a heart almost as big as yours. [laughter] ainsley: thank you. steve: very nice. we said we would ask some of the questions. by the way, donald trump has been tweeting this morning. two tweets this morning. totally biased nbc news went out of its way to say that the big announcement from ford, g.m., lockheed and others jobs come back to the u.s. had
nothing to do with trump is more fake news. ask top ce ohs of those countries for real facts came back because of me. the stories are on some of the mainstream legacy media outlets is with the announcement yesterday about g.m. and also hyundai, did donald trump impact those and the companies say it's complicated. they were in the pipeline for many, many months. if you buy that. brian brian boeing ceo said flat out donald trump is going to bring manufacturing back to this country answered looks forward to working with him. straight ahead. ainsley: a woman's rights march but one women's group isn't allowed because they are pro-life. one of the members is going to join us next. brian: since election loss hillary clinton has been hanging outs in the woods and the grocery store. where do you think she is right now? wherever she is, give her a hug. ♪ ♪ ran into a girl ♪ in a pretty white dress ♪ by forcefully stimulating the nerves in your colon.

a very clear message that, you know, with this new incoming administration we were going to be holding donald trump accountable. and, you know, there are plenty of women who had different ideologies and political background who are coming together and, you know, the site itself talks all about unity and inclusiveness and diversity. so when we were actually added as a partner, ache pro-life feminist group, we're not used to getting included in a lot of circles, but it was incredibly hopeful that this march was doing exactly what it claimed by including people even who had different opinions. ainsley: you don't even support donald trump, right? >> i was not a donald trump supporter, no. ainsley: but you are pro-life. >> i'm incredibly pro-life. ainsley: because of that stand these and other women said you and other females in the organization are not allowed to march with us. >> came out in atlantic article for praising them for being inclusive and adding us within, i believe it was something like two hours there was a huge twitter storm of
people demanding that would he be removed unfortunately the march did cave and remove us as official partners. either way we will still be out there representing the pro-life contingent and definitely still be marching. ainsley: how can they say they are inclusive and welcome all women when they are not including everyone. they are excluding you? >> absolutely. and, i mean, of course, the irony here is they are standing against a trump presidency. and you wonder how v. they learned anything? the reason that i think a trump presidency caught a lot of people by surprise is because so few people were really to openly admit that they were supporting him, right? because they had been silenced and told that their opinions were unacceptable. and now here they are doing the exact same thing to pro-life women. ainsley: all right, destiny, thanks for joining us, we wish you and your organization all the best. >> thank you. ainsley: come up a huge show still ahead. we have more on the one-on-one interview with donald trump. and we have senator rand paul and larry sabato.

show today. and we'll be live there tomorrow. thursday, friday, and saturday. brian: yeah, and by now we should have told you already, and you should know on your own, you should be dressed. steve: yes. brian: it's th the president's last press conference, and donald trump less than two days of taking over. ainsley: unless you're in washington and you can't get a dress. donald said they're all sold out. how are you going to get dressed if you live in washington? steve: and it's not the '80s. so that's inappropriate. and you had a great exclusive that we're presenting today. ainsley: yes. steve: you got to sit down with donald trump. last interview i believe before he becomes president. ainsley: that's right. he's been tweeting about a lot of the news lately but hasn't had a sit down and talk to some of the people in the press about these issues. the first thing out of the gate we talked about congressman lewis and the 60 other congress individuals that are boycotting the inauguration. listen. >> congressman lewis is saying
he didn't remember that he skipped that inauguration. >> he conveniently doesn't remember. how do you forget if you go to an inauguration? i can tell you when i was at a inauguration, and you don't forget something like that. so he got caught, and it's pretty bad. and it's making him look bad, frankly. it's a very important time. this is a transition and a very important transition and especially because things will be done beautifully, but they'll be done differently than they have been over the past eight years. and i can say over the past 16 years, they'll be different. and we have to have a smooth transition. and president obama understands that very well, and that's why he's been so gracious. but ends that. and i think for him to have grandstanded, because i think he just grandstanded john lewis, and then he got caught in a very bad lie. so we'll see what happens. as far as other people not going, we'll see. we need seats so badly. i hope they give me their tickets. are they going to give me
their tickets or to other people? what happens with their tickets? ainsley: would you be willing to sit down with congressman lewis? >> sure. i would be. but we're off to a bad start, there's no question about it. what he did was a very, very bad thing. not for me. for me, it doesn't matter. he did a bad thing for the country. very divisive. and it's not divided because of me. it has been divided. but we have a very divided country. and what he did was very, very divisive. >> so the number of u.s. congressman so far, 60. all democrats not going to be in attendance. we don't know of any u.s. senators who will not be in attendance. however, -- we just heard from lucas tomlinson, our state department producer that apparently the secretary of state john kerry is not going to be in attendance. we don't know exactly what the circumstances are but john kerry will not be there for the swearing in halftime 45th president of the united states.
brian: pretty significant. i don't know -- for all we know, he has a conflict. but we also know he's unemployed. he was u.s. senator for years, became secretary of state. steve: he's got a pretty good bank account. ainsley: it could be a health issue. it could be anything. we don't know the reason. we won't jump to conclusions. brian: he gave some remarks yesterday just about warning donald trump not to say certain things. steve: listen, donald trump says a lot of stuff on twitter and in the last 20 minutes, he has tweeted three times. ainsley with you asked him a little bit about twitter. ainsley: he says -- well, listen to what he said. steve: okay. ainsley: what about twitter? are you going to continue to tweet? >> yeah. look, i don't like tweeting. i have other things i could be doing. but i get very dishonest media. very dishonest press, and it's my only way that i can counteract. for instance, when john lewis said he's never done it before where he skipped an inauguration. well, he has.
it turned out to be a lie, so i'm able to say that. now, if the press were honest, which it's not, i would absolutely not use twitter. i wouldn't have to. ainsley: it's so funny. you can watch -- if you watch networks and then watch his twitter account, you can see he responds to stories immediately. brian: which show he's watching. ainsley: yeah, if he doesn't agree with anything, he'll respond instantly. brian: i was talking to someone from the bush white house and say it's not going to be possible for donald trump to tweet at this pace. ainsley: he'll probably have someone does it for him. brian: he does it legitimately in his voice. he doesn't tell you this is wrong. he says why he thinks it's wrong. i'm not sure anyone can do it. ainsley: it's smart if he does it. brian: i don't know how smart it is when it comes to policy tweeting out to get ahead of communications people. steve: i think it's great. listen, donald trump got elected because he's donald trump. you know, after friday, he's not going to
become mitt romney. he's going to be donald trump and donald trump got this far with twitter. ainsley: it's the day of reality tv. everybody loves to be in the present. in the know. they want to find out what's happening behind the scenes. if we ever take a camera behind the scenes, we are interested in that. we always hear from you. we all watch reality tv. well, a lot of us do. i love reality tv. so i like it when he tweets, and he just says it like it is. he's raw, real, and jen win. steve: and to your point earlier, you could tell he was watching nbc because he tweeted 30 minutes ago, totally bias nbc news big announcement from ford, gm, lockheed and others jobs coming to the u.s. but nothing to do with trump is fake news. came back because of me. and he just tweeted another one a couple of minutes ago. the bear the aspirin company
has meetings with president-elect donald trump the latest in a string. so another one is coming very, very shortly. ainsley: he's not happy with mainstream media because they're saying that these companies had it in the works before. they were already going to provide more jobs. steve: well, he's not even president yet and if you add alibaba with all the car-manufacturing companies, it looks like he has created or saved 1.2 million jobs, and he's not even president yet. ainsley: well, look at carrier. they were going to move into mexico and now they're not? that wasn't in the works before. steve: nope. he's tweeting today. brian: abby huntsman. you have other news. >> i do. we want to start with that fox news alert former president george hw bush. now telling that president bush was taken there on saturday after shortness of breath. he's responding well to treatments and they hope that he can come home soon. we'll keep a close eye on that one.

brian: we'll find out what's going on with hillary clinton next because she will be as functioning more as a former first lady with bill clinton because he'll be at the inaugural. bush 43 will be at the inaugural as well as former first lady laura bush. although bush 41 couldn't be there because of his health, and we hope he's okay today, he did write a nice letter to donald trump wishing him luck, considering more likely he didn't vote for donald trump. that says a lot. ainsley: something you would frame. has he written you a letter? brian: bush 41? brian: no, he hasn't. steve: i got one. ainsley: did you frame it? steve: of course it's framed. brian: you know what's interesting? they write notes to each other and leave it in the desk. the oval office desk. what will barack obama write? ainsley: i don't think i knew that. so there's a stack of letters? steve: no, there's a single envelope, and it's from the fella who sat in the chair before you. i'm sure he has already written it.
it's 8:10 now no new york city. brian: president obama commutes the sentence of bradley manning because he leaked documenting and betrayed his fellow soldiers and bipartisan backlash the fiery tissue left her nose sore and red. so dad slayed the problem with puffs plus lotion, instead. puffs have pillowy softness for dakota's tender nose. with lotion to comfort and soothe when she blows. don't get burned by ordinary tissues. a nose in need deserves puffs, indeed. now get puffs plus lotion in the squeezable softpack.
. steve: right to a fox news alert. on one of his final days in office, president obama setting free one of america's controversial prisoners. we're talking about chelsea manning. ainsley: now set to be released three decades early. brian: christian fisher is live outside the white house with the fall out. kristen. >> well, this decision to cut chelsea manning's sentence by almost 30 years means president obama has now granted more commutations than any president in history. now, the white house says the rational for this release has everything to do with manning accepting responsibility and expressing remorse for her crimes and nothing to do with wikileaks or its founder who had been campaigning for manning's release. the transgender army officer was convicted of releasing more than 700 classified documents to wikileaks. now released in may. both republicans and democrats on capitol hill are calling the move outrageous.
>> for president to adopt a cause for no sound reason of national security or criminal justice encourages people who want to take that kind of action outside of the law. this is going to be very harmful. >> now, manning was one of 273 people to receive clemency on a single day. last year president obama released 109 for a total of 1385 commutations over his presidency. and the white house says expect even more commutations on thursday. so this will undoubtedly be a major focus of president obama's final press conference which is an hour away. steve: thank you very much. the question is which day is he going to pardon bowe bergdahl. brian: releasing and sending them to yemen or saudi arabia.
imagine the people trying to get killed getting those guys? and now letting them out because you had a campaign promise? how is that responsible? ainsley: it's unbelievable. and not convicting or indicting hillary clinton for leaking a lot of secrets too? that could have gotten in the hands of other countries and put our men and women who fight for this country at great risk. i don't understand. i don't understand why -- these are very series allegations. brian: oh, absolutely. ainsley: not allegations. convictions. steve: the guy -- the woman now is a traitor. and kellyanne conway was with us about an hour ago. what's at play here? simple. it's politics. >> the documents that chelsea manning had acquired were found on osama bin laden's computer. that tells you how important it was and what a great threat it was. so i would ask him why on the alter of national security and
intelligence we would be so cavalier at this moment. but party pardon politics at its worst. the way we treat somebody or the way we look at leaking really depends on whose ox is being gored. brian: the president just doesn't care. a high school senior in his last day says i'm going to college. it doesn't matter. ainsley: then why don't you go to college? why do you have to stick around and pardon everyone and then go to college and let somebody else clean up the mess? brian: this one even his own secretary of defense in the camp, senator and a lot of democrats can't block it. president obama just admitted to the prison catch and to many, it's a game changer. ainsley: and more of the exclusive interview with president-elect donald trump. ainsley: when i ask you about your speech. the inauguration speech. have you prepared your speech? have you practiced? what's your first line?
steve: well, we are so lucky that you were able to obtain the final exclusive interview with donald trump before he puts his hand on the bible and becomes the 45th president. ainsley: yeah, we're really grateful that he allowed us to go turnover over there to trump tower yesterday, to sit down with him for a long interview, even answer some of your questions. brian: i get the sense that he is going to make trump tower the almost like a cohabitation with the white house. i sense he's going to be there a lot. ainsley: well, i will say it's very convenient for us because you just walk over a block. normally you're getting on a plane and going to -- it's
really nice to walk over. steve: what about for him? ainsley: well, that's true. he's going to have to go back and forth. but individuals his own plane and he is president. i asked one of the guys where is the ladies' room? he took me the long way and then i used it later and there was a shorter day. eric was sitting at his desk. he came out and talked with me. a bunch of people we've interviewed in the past. i said eric, has your wife gotten a dress yet? has laura gotten a dress? oh, i have no idea. it's crazy how women put so much focus on that and men don't care. here's the serious news you care about. here's donald trump. ainsley: president-elect trump, thank you so much for meeting with us today. >> thank you. ainsley: exciting week for you. what's the first thing you're going to do when you walk into the white house? >> well, i'm going to go to work. monday is really the day that
we start signing and working and making great deals for the country. ainsley: i know melania and your son are going to stay here until they finish school. will they be there? >> oh, yeah, my whole family is going to be in the white house. barren and melania and all of my children will be in the white house, which is sort of a tradition. they say the first night you have your family there but ivanka, don, tiffany, they'll all be in the white house. and it's very exciting. there's something special about that building. err time you walk in it, something so special about the white house. ainsley: not many people to say they are the president of the united states of america. >> very humbling, i will tell you. ainsley: i am sure. do you think about your parents? >> i do. my parents were great. i had great parents and loving parents. my father was a strong guy. actually, my mother was at least equally a strong but a lot of people didn't quite understand that. but she was strong but good. both good.
great hearts and great parents. ainsley: i want to ask you about your speech. your inauguration speech. have you prepared your speech? have you practiced? what's your first line? >> well, i have prepared it. the first line is thank you, everybody, all presidents. including president obama and michelle who has been really nice. ivanka spent time with her, it was supposed to be a quick conversation, and they spent an hour. so i'm just thanking president obama, and i'm thanking his very lovely wife because they have been so gracious. we're going to have a tremendous turnout. i think from what i'm hearing, the numbers are going to be astronomical. ainsley: there are congressmen and women who have decided not to show up and not be there. what was your reaction when congressman lewis started this? >> well, what he said is he's never done it before, but he has. you know, he has done it before because he did it with
president bush 43, and he did it on the same basis.he is not r president or something thereabouts. and that's a very bad misrepresentation. so let's see what happens. as far as other people not going, that's okay because we need seats so badly. i hope they give me their tickets. are they going to give us our tickets? or are they going to give them to other people? no, what happens with their tickets? i hope they give us their tickets. ainsley: what about these celebrities who are now pulling out? >> many of the celebrities who are saying they're not going. they were never invited. i don't want the celebrities. i want the people. and we have the biggest celebrities in the world there. ainsley: you. >> i won't say that. and president obama. and president obama. ainsley: how about these designers who don't want to dress your wife. did she even ask tom ford? >> never asked tom ford. doesn't like tom ford. doesn't like his designs. tom ford is an example. i will not dress the first lady.
and steve nguyen just called me and said he thought it was so terrible that tom ford said, he through his clothing out of his las vegas hotel. i'm not a fan of tom ford. never have been. ainsley: i heard smaller parade, fewer balls. why is that? >> well, they had 10, 12 balls. we have one ball i think it's 25,000 people and they're going to be bigger. but who wants to have, like, ten different balls? so we did fewer. everything sold out. you can't get a ticket. but, in fact, my biggest problem is you can't get tickets to any of this stuff. it's impossible. i was told some of the dress shops in washington, you can't get a dress anymore. it's, like -- it's just going to be an amazing weekend. it's going to be something special. and you will have crowds like they have rarely seen before. ainsley: what about twitter? are you going to continue to tweet? >> yeah. look, i don't like tweeting. i have other things i could be doing. but i get very dishonest media.
very dishonest press, and it's my only way that i can counteract. ainsley: cia john brennan responded to you on twitter. you questioned whether or not he was the leaker. >> well, i accept it. it came out of some place. and it's fake news. it's all fake news. i can say something about george w george washington. i can say something about abraham lincoln. i can say something about you. just fake news, and they shouldn't have been a part of it. they should not have been a part of it because it's made up, never existed, never happened. and the reason i say that so strongly because nothing's ever going to show up. there's never going to be a tape that shows up. there's never going to show up. now, i would be very embarrassed if a tape actually showed up saying something like that. i would be double embarrassed because if i am saying there is no tape, there is no event. i was never even in that room for that period of time. they made stuff up, and it started with the republican party when they tried to beat
me in the nomination, and then it went on the democrats took over that work supposedly. and by the intelligence giving it credence, a little bit of credence just by talking about it, it was very inappropriate. i have no idea who the leaker was, but it's fake news. ainsley: press briefing room. are you going to move it? >> so we want to move it. for whatever reason, you'll have to explain this to me and everybody. we get a lot of people showing up for press conferences, et cetera. including briefings. and the room is too small. so we said we're going to move it to a larger room in a nearby area but, you know, not the same area. and the press went crazy. so i said let's not move. but some people in the press will not be able to get in. we'll make sure you get a seat. but there's too many people for this small room. >> especially nowadays with bloggers and with radio. ainsley: we have so many people that want to go. so we'll have to just pick the people that get into the room. i'm sure other people will be
thrilled about that. but we offered a much larger room because we need a much larger room, and we offered to do that. but they went crazy, and they'll be begging for a much larger room. you'll watch. ainsley: did you see the impersonators standing in for you? we asked them this morning. is there any advice for mr. trump? he said apparently watch his step. he tripped going down a step. >> we don't want that to happen. steve: now, i think that's an exclusive. there's not enough room for our own fox john roberts. ainsley: i'll let him have the chair if he wants. steve: now, if tom ford a designer were a question asker, get him out. ainsley: yeah, i don't think he's allowed in. it's interesting because he said all of these musicians as you heard said they weren't going to play. well, you were
never asked to play. i- it's up to george bernstein. in charge of entitlement. ainsley: it was funny, though. he was, like, who wants to go to ten balls? brian: yeah, i know. a lot of dancing for him. coming up straight ahead. the phrase that got him elected. >> make america great again. okay? you knew that one. brian: huge breaking news. the president-elect changing his slogan. ainsley: plus our next guest is taking tv and the internet by storm. >> say hello to my lord in savior jesus christ, my parents, pretty much out there. >> you look sharp, by the way. >> them girls are thinking gotcha. ainsley: well, now he's going national. janice dean is showing him how to do the weather. >> we've got your weather. coming up on fox and friends. i need to promote my new business and do it on budget. i can make that happen.

feel better. brian: i could not believe this. i've never seen anything quite like this. it happened last night. our friend tucker carlson exposing a hoax. these two. confronting a man about his fake company that's claiming to send thousands of paid protesters to the inauguration. watch. >> this is a sham. your company isn't real. your website is fake. the claims you have made are lies. this is a hoax. let me start the beginning, however, with your name, don, which is not your real name. >> it's dominic. ls are silent. >> that's a lie, and you know it's a lie. >> we are greatly, greatly supporters of julian assange,
and we support the truth to get out there. >> really. so you're pretty supportive of peyton manning, are you? >> extremely, yeah. >> he meant chelsea manning. >> so he was being covered. i don't think he did. he tried to let everybody know that it was a scam and tucker was unmasking him. so little by little, tucker was breaking him down and -- ainsley: but why would he admit it? >> he wanted to expose the paperwork from the 1947 rosswell crash. ainsley: tucker had him on to expose or to talk about what he was doing. and then in the middle of the interview exposed him? brian: he's a scammer. and he was covered by other major newspapers as legitimately paying protesters. steve: way to go tucker. brian: and tucker unmasked him, and he tried to go along with the joke a little bit. ainsley: how funny is tucker?
i love watching his show because i love watching him get in a fight. >> that will go down in history. brian: i don't know where it's going. steve: it's peyton manning's favorite too. >> it's so good. everybody loves tucker. we do have a fox news alert and a texas detective gunned down in the line of duty. 47-year-old jerry jerry walker responding to a gunman in north dallas. shooting walker through a window as he barricaded himself inside a home. the suspect found dead after a six-hour standoff. how sad. and another transfer before president obama leaves office. four more gitmo detainees will be released today. three to the uae, the other to saudi arabia. the white house admitting the president will not fulfill his campaign promise of closing down guantanamo bay. >> i don't anticipate that we will succeed in that goal.
but it's not for a lack of trying. the only reason it didn't happen is because of the politics. members of congress and both parties, frankly, played with this issue. >> there are now 41 detainees left in gitmo. and forget make america great again. president-elect trump is already thinking about his reelection slogan in an interview with the washington post. he seems to decide right on the spot keep america great exclamation point. mr. trump then tells his team to trademark it. what do you guys think of that? brian: keep america -- it's very good. just saved some room on the hat. >> it has to work on the hat. ainsley: should web honest? >> still laughing about the tucker interview. ainsley: something else that's really cute and funny. we love janice dean but have you ever heard this kid do the weather? >> why did you want to be a
weather kid? >> because i wanted to be on tv again. i want to say hello to my lord in savior jesus christ. my parents, pretty much everybody out there. >> you look mighty sharp, by the way. >> them girls are thinking. gotcha. and where i live, liberty. brian: well, as you know that's 9-year-old charlie going on 29. he went viral after appearing on that segment on the fox affiliate in north carolina. steve: now he's going national. he's in the weather center with chief meteorologist janice dean. now, janice, charlie is not a want to be weathercaster. he's just a character who found himself on tv in his home state. >> so, charlie, tell us how are you feeling as a national weather reporter? >> i mean, oh, my. omg. i am thinking, man, i am shocked. i mean, oh.
i mean, i feel good. >> okay. so -- but your shoes hurt you were telling me earlier. >> yeah. i have heel pain. >> heel pain. that's the problem. a weather person, you have to stand a lot. >> yeah. >> so the heel pain, you have to get better shoes. are you ready to do the national forecast? this is big time. >> big time. >> let's do the national forecast. >> all right. >> well, it's going to be 60 nup raleigh where i live liberty. 63 over in atlanta and. >> don't go too far. >> on the west, like, right over here where denver is and all of that, we've got low temperatures like 24, 14, 37, 27, 18. and now -- >> where are we? >> okay. this is the last 24 hours. it looks like the rain just went by my hometown liberty and went onto raleigh and now
it's headed down to the east. >> give the five-day forecast so they can see your face. >> i can't do the clicker. >> yeah, you can. >> okay here we go. here's my hometown liberty, north carolina. wednesday it's going to be 61, sunny with a low of 37. thursday 61 a low of 45. friday partly cloudy. >> and sometimes you know what? sometimes if you give some excitement, i'll do a little dance on the weather mat. >> okay. >> come on. do the dance on the weather mat. oh, yeah. >> janice, it's one thing to assist you but then give a very technical weather clicker where he controls the weather cast. that was great. >> you can take that home. you can open up garages with that clicker. steve: that's absolutely true.
>> hello to everybody in north carolina. big time. ainsley: charles, you're great. thank you so much for being on with us. steve: we saw him. we wanted to see him. we've seen him. ainsley: you're living great if you live in liberty, north carolina. breaking this morning george hw bush has been hospitalized starting with shortness of breath. dr. marc siegel has been in touch with his team. he's going to give us an update coming up. >> but first senator rand paul is here. president-elect trump is already onboard. and i a closer look at that plan. next. 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 women's

brian: well, the battle over obamacare continues. how will republicans go about repealing and replacing the affordable health care act quickly? donald trump talked about it with ainsley. >> we have to replace it quickly. that's what i'm talking about, and we'll have blockade back in the states because there are people who can't afford it and nobody is going to be dying on the streets with president trump. brian: our next guest has his own replacement plan in constant contact with his rival. republican rand paul who got another six years. is he right? is the president-elect right that there is something in place to cover everyone and no one will be dying in the streets? >> oh, absolutely. and people have to remember before obamacare, people weren't dying in the streets. we had an imperfect system that needed to be improved upon.
but we have a system even before obamacare where 85, 90% of people were covered. so what i would like to do is expand that, and i would think that the goal should be as president trump said that everybody should be insured. that is the goal. i want everybody to be insured of the most people to be insured at the least amount of cost. the problem with obamacare, it added to mandates, which deterred young, healthy people from buying insurance. i want to do the opposite. i want to lower the cost so more people will be able to buy insurance. brian: so to put it simply, we were giving a lot of money to the states that we didn't have to insure people that might not have been insured before but the policies weren't effective. so how do you panic, the average person who isn't knee-deep in politics with health care knowledge listening right now? >> basically what obamacare did was expand medicaid. but it also said, hey, guys, it will be for free. all of the states you can put all of the poor people on the rolls, but it won't cost you
anything because the federal government is going to pay for it. the rub is, though, the federal government has no money. the federal government borrows about a million dollars a minute and has a $20 trillion debt. so what i said is let's be honest about it. what can we do to make the economy strong enough that we only have a small percentage of people who can't get insurance? that's the first thing you need to do. and then if you have to provide to people with medicaid, let's be honest about the accounting. and if states want to have more expansive medicaid, they should probably raise taxes on their citizens to pay for it. brian: can you give me two ideas of what makes rand paul's plan workable? >> first thing you have to do is legal i see insurance. get rid of all the obamacare mandates and let people buy whatever kind of insurance they want and that will drive the prices down. second thing, help people save through health savings accounts. give them tax credits, tax ducks to save in these savings accounts. and then the third thing is
individuals need to join together in groups so that they can get the leverage and reduce in cost and also get insurance that won't drop them. brian: senator, you have to get the house to listen to you, the president-elect to listen to you, and about eight democrats to go with you because you need 60 votes to fully replace; right? >> i've got my work ahead of me. i already have the ear of the president. now what we have to do is get the ear of the leadership and the senate and the house. i'm working on that, so i've got a lot of work between now and the next couple weeks. brian: you know, it's amazing. you and ted cruz seem to have the best relationship with president-elect trump, and you guys were the most bitter rivals to start with. you put all of that behind you for the good of the country. thanks so much for joining us, senator. >> thank you. brian: all right. coming up straight ahead. a fox news alert. president hw bush 41 hospitalized. i've been in touch with his team, and he's next up with his condition. >> our best to him. brian, good morning to you.
controversial pardon out the door. president obama will explain it this afternoon. but first, there's a flurry of hearings this morning on the next cabinet. we will watch all of that for you as more democrats jump on the bandwagon of dissension as dozens will skip friday's inauguration. the 45th president is said to be sworn in in two days. top of the news. so we have extra sets of eyes on our wells every day. because safety is never being satisfied. and always working to be better.
health cares. he broke a bone in his neck. here to weigh in dr. siegel. should web worried about bush 41? >> no. we should. in what i'm hearing, he was just admitted on saturday, brian because of shortness of breath. the same thing that happened in 2012 when he had bronchitis. when you have parkinson's, you have trouble with is h. he's awake. he's alert. he's chipper. he's responding. my own prediction from what i'm hearing is that he should be out of the hospital in a couple of days. brian: not being able to clear your throat. that's what you're saying, isn't it? >> because of secretions buildup. it's not always like that. but it could be difficult. steve: when you hear shortness of breath, that could be a symptom of a lot of bad stuff
but given his history, you feel that's what's going on. >> well, also, steve, because you're immobile. make sure they get in the hospital, have no blood clots, but by now, all of that would have been ruled out. so now that he's saying he's responding, he's better, responding to the breathing treatments, i know that's a very good sign. ainsley: well, we knew he wasn't going to go to the inauguration for health reasons. but 43 and his wife are going to be there. i wonder if it's going to change things for them. i wonder how good he's doing. >> i heard he's doing well and 43 is still if we could to attend the inauguration. so nothing has changed. my prediction would be he would be out of the hospital. but, look, when you're a former president of the united states and as well loved as george hw bush, you take every precaution. he's there as a precaution. not because he's getting worse. have fun at the inauguration.
brian: more fox and friends in just a moment but i keep it growing by making every dollar count. that's why i have the spark cash card from capital one. with it, i earn unlimited 2% cash back on all of my purchasing. and that unlimited 2% cash back from spark means thousands of dollars each year going back into my business... which adds fuel to my bottom line. what's in your wallet?

>> 2:15 today the current occupant of the white house, barack obama, will have his final press conference. you'll see it live right here on the fox news channel as the moving vans take the obama's possessions from 1600 pennsylvania up connecticut to their new rental house. >> it takes place in five hours. in 10 minutes my radio show from 9:00 to noon on the fox radio app. the legendary basketball coach and bill hemmer and martha maccallum together again just for us. >> i love the picture. >> with my stethoscope. >> you are the hardest worker.
