>> 95! the star getting slapped in the head by excited contestant fell to the ground but he was okay. he was on the show's celebrity week. >> barely got grazed but he is okay "fox & friends" starts right now. >> general h.r. mcmaster will become the national security advisor. >> you can anticipate that the president and all of us will continue to call out the media fast and loose with the facts. >> media people think they cannot be credit sighed. criticizing them is attacking the first amendment. they really believe this. >> police officer killed in the line of duty by a parole gang member. >> this is a sense will, senseless tragedy that does not need to be. we need to wake up. enough is enough. heather: plane crashing into shopping mall. all four americans and the pilot were killed. >> new executive order on
immigration could come down at any moment. >> there has been a security breach at new york's jfk airport. 11 people passed unintended check point. people who do not show up doing cocaine and watching porn are going to be fired. >> we still hood famous. yeah, i'm still hood famous. i was getting into rap thing. i'm not good at it but i was getting into it ♪ i'm not crazy ♪ i'm in a southern state of mind ♪ brian: alex trebek is rapping. he always does that if you watch every night. steve: is he one of the most famous rappers. brian: until kevin mccleary gets into it. shark tank could be the next czar of canada. steve: you see behind us right there siren activity. there is a big fire in a garage a couple of doors down. everybody is okay, we believe.
none the less you will see those behind us probably for the next hour or. so. ainsley: we have makeup artists and hair folks scrambling to get their car out of the garage. they were worried the flames were going to jump. look at those fire trucks. steve: new york city is prepared. abby huntsman is not in knox today. she is? jacksonville, florida. beach diner where the people are up early. good morning, abby. ainsley: we are at the beach diner in atlantic beach. i'm here with bob. talking politics. coffee, orange juice. having friday catfish this morning you said it's the best you will get. abby: bob, what are the biggest issues for you. >> quite frankly i think the hard core of it is jobs. jobs and the economy. abby: also talking about economy. that's one the big issues in this area. martha maccallum is doing a town hall. hearing how people feel things are going.
brian: jacksonville very much in donald trump's corner through all of this. ainsley: such a beautiful area there all so pretty. steve: wait a minute, catfish for breakfast? brian: don't the whiskers tickle your mouth? steve: chicken of the sea, maybe. brian: three minutes after the appear to of the hour. president trump taking major steps this morning to get back our borders. ainsley: the white house is about to unveil aggressive new immigration overhaul that will give more manpower to the dhs. steve: our manpower is in washington, d.c. his name is griff jenkins. he fills us in on what could happen as early as today. >> a major immigration push coming from the white house and could come as early as 8:00 a.m. it's is the implication giving
dhs more manpower and increased authority on the border with the focus of illegal aliens convicted of criminal offenses. the actions will include return of immigrants on the border. expedited deportation hearings. the hiring of 15,000 additional ice and border patrol agents and aggressive new measures targeting criminal aliens. parents, who pay to small their children across the border may also be prosecuted. the effort will target those who have unresolved charges. as well as those who have abused public benefit programs. now, t the white house is calling that a big immigration launch is not the revised executive order or travel ban that. we expect that may come any day it will target those same seven countries and have exemptions for visas, green card holders and dual citizens and not have automatic ban on syrian refugees. guys, the message is quite clear with this ache, the
president is cracking down on illegal immigration. if you are illegal alien with convicted criminal offense pass, you may be going home. all of this g mg coming on the heels of profits. i will be out monitoring for profitforprotests. brian: bring a helmet. steve: it's all about the president's authority and priorities. one of the things not included, remember that a.p. story from friday that said they were going to use 100,000 national guardsmen to round up people from 11 different states. that's not in this. that was labeled by the administration as fake news. brian: did not generate from them. also something else that i think is pretty important. they're not going to say tomorrow at midnight everybody has to go by this order 110%. there is going to be a little bit of ramp up time. and general kelly will have a chance to brief everyone at the borders at different countries and embassies to get them up to speed.
i think it would also be a good move to think this is anti-muslim put north korea in there. listen, do we want anyone traveling from north korea without being thoroughly screened? put that in there. let everyone realize. ainsley: only reason he decided on these seven countries that's what obama administration had suggested. it will be interesting to find out how the mainstream media handles this. i feel like it might be more of a compromise. now if you have a dual citizenship and green card or a visa to come in the country from one of those seven countries you are allowed in. brian: i want us fixers warren mattis, helped us translators already screened to come back here, they have got to be able to come back here. steve: excuse me, i had mentioned the a.p. thing which people in the administration refer to as fake news. everybody is talking about the president tweeting out fake news and how the media, the enemy of the american people.
i think maybe enemy of people on the political right might be more accurate or the opposition party. yesterday, given that the mainstream media pretty much said donald trump had declared war on the mainstream media and, in fact, you look at some of the things they have done recently, you just have to wonder are they being fair or are they leaning way to the left? ainsley: look at this tweet from nbc yesterday morning it says president trump reaches 32 days won't be the shortest u.s. president. referring to william henry harrison who was the president in 1841 who only served 32 days. he died of pneumonia. brian: great war hero. people are saying listen you need a balanced press. you need the press out there telling the story. it's an important part of democracy. that's true. however, what if the press has a point of view and is drilling that point of view to the american people? are they doing their job? ainsley: that's what bill o'reilly said last night.
brian: to me that doesn't seem like they are doing their job. they are inflicting their vision on the american people. and the american people are doing 0 million different things. ainsley: press overtly liberal. steve: we need adversarial press. because the press for the most part leans so far to the left they are not really objective. if you watched katy couric yesterday on. >> as we know since 2ebg been a couple dozen suspicious deaths of journalists in russia who came out against the government from there. donald trump has made no secret about going after journalists and his distaste for any news that doesn't agree with him here. do you find this is a dangerous path is he heading down? steve: so the president is going to go after people? i think that could have been a couple days ago. ainsley: basically saying, comparing president trump to vladimir putin. saying people have
mysteriously died in russia. so journalists who don't agree with him here could do i die? brian: she has been insinuating before. pointing back to the people they lie, they lie and everyone would start yell at her and she has gotten intimidated before. clearly, i don't think she was trying to redelay donald trump was going to have journalists killed like it's been alleged that vladimir putin has. steve: i will tell you what, brian, yesterday "the washington post margaret sullivan says she fears journalists will be hunted down. so in that same vein. brian: donald trump won't be behind it. she is not saying donald trump is going to be behind it. steve: i think she kind of insinuated that. ainsley: jake tapper, president trump has criticized him in the past. he said stop whining, he had that message for the president. it's interesting that journalists are supposed to be fair and balanced and supposed to tell both sides of the story not supposed to have a
message for the president. steve: the center for public integrity looked at $400,000 given to campaigns before the november election. 96% went to hillary clinton. so clearly they lean tote political left. and if they have an agenda in what is spoked to be right down the middle news, that gives the folks at home a certain message. brian: when chris matthews says after the electric says i don't recognize the planet we are on and martha raddatz cries in between. this is the nbc news desk on the network. meanwhile todd starnes is one of the leading commentators in radio today. everyone picks up his audio column. and he has got a best-selling book the deplorables guide to making america great again. todd, are you surprised by the way the media is reacting to donald trump calling them out last week. >> absolutely positively not.
american news rooms are the least diverse newsrooms in the public. knows numbers coming from the american of public integrity. 97% of the campaign cash going to hillary clinton. it goes beyond that "the washington post says barely 7% of journalists, working journalists consider themselves to be republican. and then you look at the people who go to church. barely 8% of journalists attend church. so you can understand why there is such a bias in their coverage against those so-called gun toting, bible clinging deplorables. ainsley: todd, he didn't get the popular vote, so how is this going to effect the viewers and mainstream media? is this going to back fire on them or are viewers going to like it. >> if they have any common sense they are watching "fox & friends" right now instead of other yahoos out there. that's ultimately the decision for the news consumer and they're making those choices because they are educating themselves. they do understand what's going on in the mainstream
media when they see these ugly, ugly attacks not just on president trump but also on his family. the attacks against the first lady have just been simply outrageous and incredibly, incredibly offensive. steve: yesterday donald trump was compared to richard nixon during watergate. so, you know, there is a scandal in history, they are going to somehow link it to this guy. >> and this media bias goes all the way back to president kennedy. you might remember there was an episode where he cancelled all the white house subscriptions to the new york herald tribune and found out they were using the newspapers to take care of the newborn puppies in the white house. finally they found a good use for the newspaper. brian: that was jfk. good luck with your book. ainsley: having a field day after president trump said this. >> you look at what is happening last night in sweden. sweden. who would believe this?
sweden? ainsley: our next guest is caught in the center of the hysteria and says the press is making the point. filmmaker omni horowitz is coming up live. brian: he looks stressed. disgusting painting depicting police as pigs is back in the headlines. unbelievable. ♪ i believe it all is coming to an end ♪ oh well, i guess we are going to pretend ♪ widespread pain drained my energy. my doctor said moving more helps ease fibromyalgia pain. she also prescribed lyrica. fibromyalgia is thought to be the result of overactive nerves. lyrica is believed to calm these nerves. for some, lyrica can significantly relieve fibromyalgia pain and improve function, so i feel better. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions or suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these, new or worsening depression, or unusual changes in mood or behavior.
or swelling, trouble breathing, rash, hives, blisters, muscle pain with fever, tired feeling, or blurry vision. common side effects are dizziness, sleepiness, weight gain and swelling of hands, legs and feet. don't drink alcohol while taking lyrica. don't drive or use machinery until you know how lyrica affects you. those who have had a drug or alcohol problem may be more likely to misuse lyrica. with less pain, i can be more active. ask your doctor about lyrica.
♪ ♪ >> look at what's happening last night in sweden. sweden. who would believe this? sweden? brian: president trump sounding off on refugee crisis in sweden. they are taking in a lot of them 164,000 last year. the mainstreamed m mainstream mg his comments as not true. the man at the center of this storm filmmaker omni horowitz. are you surprised months after you do this documentary it's front and center? >> mind blown. who would have thought. tucker carlson did this interview because he thought it was important story. he had me on. did that spiel and stuart night my phone belows up. donald trump is referencing you. it took my by surprise.
brian: you say rapes and assaults are up. >> no pushing back this statistics. pushing back don't know what they are talking about or disingenuous or lying. rape is up and murder is up almost 80% since 2012 to 2016 in sweden. those are the swedish statistics. brian: brn? >> bra. brian: here is example of two cops who came forward saw this situation seemingly out of control. they sat down. take them out of context. at home tell me if you if it's possible to take this out of context. >> see the violence spreading across the cities? >> at least one or two a week. >> five years ago how often would you say it was? >> oh, three times a year. >> really? the increase in this kind of crime is exponential. >> i think we were caught off guard.
we didn't expect it to be so much increase. >> do you think it was deliberate attempt to cover up these type of crimes? >> rather than they don't want to seem racist. brian: they say you are a horrible person and that was taken out of context? >> maybe a horrible person but it was not taken out of context. listen, i have been doing this for years. i have done many high profile videos. i have never had a single subject even intimate that i messed around with the videotape. everything they said was in context to the questions i asked them and really, if you watch the entire video, you can see that was pretty clear. brian: facebook rant posted on the 3rd of february saying what you are saying about the influx of refugees and what they are doing to the culture in sweden that according to a cop. he according to last night's
tucker show -- yes, i am a groupy -- the ambassador said this about your stats. >> you want to talk about core issue. this is another country we are talking about the politics and the demographics and challenges of another country. why are we talking about any other country? why are we talking about sweden? >> talk about france? brian: they say it's flat from 2015 to 2016 although assaults and rapes are up within those stats. >> they may be flat. if you take in every single crime, right, computer crime, stealing a purse crime, maybe they are flat. i was only looking at two stats. what i call the heavy crimes. rape and murder. those two are demonstrably unimpeachably up. brian: are assailants immigrant? >> here's the thing. statistically you don't know. what happened in 2001 the back growfnted people who committed the assaults is there they scrubbed that from the stat.

ry have been in banking. i have castro mortgage. abby: you said most importantly we have to keep this country safe. >> absolutely. trump is totally correct. a country without borders or without respect of laws cannot survive. so he has been very, very correct on everything that he has come out and said, whether we like to hear it or not. but it's true. abby: you also say immigrants is what makes this country great though? >> my parents both were immigrants. everyone in america is once an immigrant. abby: true. >> the difference between those immigrants and the new immigrants is bottom line those immigrants respected the laws. and that's very important. abby: we're going to hear more about this later this week. i'm going to come over to you. you are also a small business owner. what do you do? >> i started a school for kids with learning disabilities 11 years ago. we are very small. abby: how do you feel about immigration. >> i think we need immigrants

again a little bit unusual at mar-a-lago says i'm going to have a presser. he has two guys -- one guy is to his left one guy to his right going to play key roles in his national security advisory staff. it's going to be general kellogg is going to be chief of staff. and it's going to be general mcmaster as national security advisor replacing general flynn. steve: somebody who knows all about this stuff is pete hegseth he joins us now from his hometown in minneapolis. yesterday at this time we asked questions for the new v.a. secretary how interviewed exclusively yesterday. first up, what do you think about general mcmaster as the national security advisor who is replacing mr. flynn? >> outstanding pick. just like with the other picks that have been made mattis and kelly and others in that national security grouping. h.r. mcmaster has been at the leading aspect of the islamic war against terrorism. he was awarded silver star for hockeys in the gulf war. led the tal afar.
always willing to break the mold never asked for permission. he said this is what i need to do to get it done. fought corruption in afghanistan. now trying to lead a sense of what future threats will be and what kind of military we need. this guy is a leader. is he unafraid. he will give unvarnished advice to president trump. our country is in great hands with h.r. ma mcmaster. ainsley: what do you do as national security advisor. >> sit on top all the apparatuses and make sure coordinate and make sure synthesize. best advice and advice gets to the president of the united states. daily interaction with the president. breaking down the threats we're facing. a what agencies we will be using. he it is at the center of the hub in the white house. brian: shows the influence of general mattis. is he the one who picked up the phone not only did he tell mcmaster you got to do
this job he told the president have you got to pick this guy. staffers and staffers on mccain's side. almost everybody, including democrats are saying positive things about this move. >> very much so. general petraeus is part of the reason he got promoted to a one star in the first place after what he did in iraq because there was consternation about h.r. mcmaster willing to do it his way and change up the approach we were taking. right support from the right people which is a good stein. steve: no secret there have been scandals at the v.a. where people have died waiting for service. have you made it a personal crusade to talk about that. you have been talking about it for years. had you exclusive chance to sit down with the next guy who is got to try to fix that thing, right? >> that's right. i had an opportunity yesterday to sit down with the new v.a. secretary. only sixth day on the job david chulkin. not just me but "fox & friends" has covered the v.a. and how badly things need too change. first interview as secretary.
we sat down for long wide ranging interview we did yesterday. one of the things we talked about is how are you going to drain that swamp and take on institutions for so long have crippled the v.a.? here is a party of what the secretary had 20 say yesterday in our discussion. >> i have been in the swamp. i have been there. part of writing these bills. there is often many times strong bill and then when it meets the veterans groups or american federation of government unions or some the committees gets diluted down big time to the point where it really looks good and everyone gets to pat themselves on the back that they did something about accountability. it doesn't change the environment. what can you say to viewers that want to make sure you are committed to a real accountability bill. >> can you expect i'm going to be back in front of congress and saying this didn't work. the bottom line is the results. okay? and we're going to have to have a workforce that is committed to making sure that the right people are working there.
i think there is nothing demoralizing to the thousands and thousands of people who serve every day in the v.a. doing a fantastic job, very committed. i see it when i practice in the v.a. these are the best people in healthcare working in the v.a. but when you have one or two or three people that really aren't doing their job, they bring everybody down. and so the very best thing i know from my private sector experiences, you've got to deal with that you have got to get them out of the system. because it helps not only the veterans but it helps the people who work in the v.a. who are trying to do the right thing for veterans. pete: bob macdonald said how can you hire people here if they think they are going to be fired at a whim, at a moment's notice. your if you can't fire then you don't have a good culture. would you say you take a different position than secretary macdonald did who fought against a lot of these accountability bills? >> i think what i heard the secretary saying is it's very
important to have a due process. you don't want to arbitrarily fire people. but, i could be fired right now. half of our viewers could be fired when they walk into work tomorrow for not doing their job or not showing up. you have v.a. workers who sell cocaine or don't show up or view porn at work. it's not about due process. >> watch us. people who don't show up to work, who do cocaine, and are watching porn at work are going to be fired because i'm not going to tolerate it. they're going to be out of our system. and you watch our results there. but, remember, we're talking about the vast, vast majority of our employees are dedicated. they could be working anywhere in healthcare but they choose to work at the v.a. i'm going to support them and i'm going to stand behind them. pete: a lot of people fighting us have been whistleblowers. the reason we know about phoenix to begin with where the scandal started were whistle blowers. i'm in regular contact with them. i'm sure you have heard from them as well. secretary macdonald, the previous administration almost
ignored them if not outright hostile with them. have you met with whistleblowers yet and what is your commitment to make sure those voices are marginalized because they are trying to do well by vets their voices are heard. >> i have absolutely met with whistle blowers. it's very important to do that. i agree they have brought very important issues to the forefront. not only are we going to support those that tell us problems in the system, because that's how we get better, but we're going to address those problems. and i know sometimes these are -- takes a while to address those probes. probably longer than it should, but we're going to make sure that just because dches hard to do we're not going to stop. pete: guys, we asked also yesterday viewers for their questions. i got a stack this tall that i brought to the interview. so best part of the interview are the viewer questions and answers to them. we're going to be doing that the remainder of this week. lots of other portion "fox & friends" a wide ranging interview where he talked about how is he going to try to put president trump's 10-point plan into practice and year haul the v.a.
ainsley: i hope he does it quickly. steve: i hope he fin fires those guys watching the porn and doing the coke. >> he couldn't in the past. heather: quick headlines for you. a police officer killed in the line of duty by gang member out on pick an parole. the officer was responding to a car crash when the driver pulled out a gun who fired on him and his partner. police say that the gunman who was released from jail just two weeks ago also killed his cousin and stole his car just hours earlier. officer keith boyer a 27-year veteran of the department died at the scene. incredible outpouring of support as hundreds accompanied his body from the hospital. his partner who was also wounded is expected to be okay. arrest of illegal immigrant is creating quite a nightmare for liberals. modena was detained by ice nearly two weeks ago.
his supporters want him let go. [chanting free daniel now] >> dozens rallying outside the tacoma detention center where he was held. they say his arrest was unconstitutional. they say he was here legally by the damascu dhaka act. he admitted weigh as gang member. his attorney denies that claim. this painting portraying cops as pigs will be the center of a lawsuit. expected to file lawsuit against the architect of the capitol from removing the painting from the capitol walls. he argues the painting's removal violates his first amendment rights. and those are a look at your headlines. brian: fantastic. what a great thing to do. thanks, heather.
19 minutes before the top of the hour. it was the most horrific night of their lives when hillary clinton lost the election. remember? some the misery being compared to what our soldiers go through when they come home from war. pesd. one of our nation's bravest congressman brian mast is here to respond. steve: president trump expected to make big announcement on immigration overhaul perhaps this morning. this time will it stand up in the courts? judge andrew napolitano is here to discuss that live. from new york city, it's "fox & friends" for a tuesday. ♪ y ship with us, their business becomes our business. ♪ that's why we make more e-commerce deliveries to homes than anyone else in the country. ♪ here, there, everywhere.
now give up half of 'em. do i have to? this is a tough financial choice we could face when we retire. but, if we start saving even just 1% more of our annual income... we could keep doing all the things we love. prudential. bring your challenges. 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. steve: well, the this morning the white house kicking off new launch on immigration action with two dhs memos detailing border security and deportation policies going forward. ainsley: this as the president is expected to issue a new immigration order this week. but will it hold up in court?
this time around? here to weigh in on this is judge andrew napolitano. >> so what came out over the weekend over secretary kelly's signature is not any change in the law it's just enforcing the law. he laid down exactly what he wants, thousands of people that work for him in the department of homeland security to do. what we are looking for and it might come as soon as today. it might come as soon as this morning is the president's new executive order. so, instead of appealing what the ninth circuit did. he is going to relationshi goind order that stops 48 lawsuits against him. nullifies the ninth circuit's opinion. in writing the new law, i'm shoe they're have done that. they have taken the ninth circuit's opinion. they have taken opinion in brooklyn and opinion in federal court in alexandria, virginia and found all the things these judges said are problematic with the executive order and they will address them. and the they they come into two
categories. one is it sound ridiculous but this is what the judge has asked. i know what's coming from the look in your face. how did you choose these seven countries, mr. president? so without revealing classified material, the white house is prepared to demonstrate how it is more likely than not that among the people in these seven countries there are some very dangerous people. let's suppose. steve: those seven countries named by the obama administration. >> correct, correct. named by the obama administration. supposed cia said to the president. mr. president, we believe that a couple dozen lone wolves are coming from three of those countries, we're not sure which three. we know they use multiple passports. we need a ban from all seven until we can weed these people out. that would be a perfectly valid, absolutely lawful, under the circumstanceoutearly e president to do what he did. brian: should have individual cases that in the past have gotten through that we're going to stop now? >> and threats coming. if he has to reveal classified
material, there is a procedure whereby it can be revealed in secret and just to the judge and not to the people that are complaining. the other area is, isn't this really a muslim ban? didn't you say during the campaign that muslims are dangerous? he said incendiary things during the campaign. that was then. this is now. i have never seen used in a courtroom words that a candidate uttered against the candidate when the candidate became the office holder. ainsley: not a muslim ban if you look at all the muslim countries around the world there are only seven that he picked out. isn't that a good defense? >> yes. because intelligence told him, the intelligence community told him i'm assuming that these are where the present threats are likely to come from. ainsley: exactly. >> it's not political thing or anti-muslim thing it's national security thing. brian: does he have any control of what court would this be challenged in? >> it's a great question. he doesn't. ainsley: come back to the ninth circuit?

♪ ♪ steve: well, they have cried, they have protested and now they have a new term just created for clinton supporters who are facing what they call, quote, crippling depression over the new president. post election stress disorder. pesd. but isn't that a slap in the face for those who have ptsd? joining us now is somebody who has faced some real stress. florida congressman army vet brian mast joins us today from florida. congressman, good morning to you. >> good morning. how are you doing today? steve: i'm doing okay. congressman, for folks unfamiliar with your story. can you tell us how you lost your legs in ied accident? >> i was a bomb technician. i had the pleasure oi found oned
it resulted in the loss of two legs and a finger. but i can tell you i'm pretty grateful to be here and grateful to have that opportunity to serve. i don't regret one moment of it. steve: thank you very much for your service. what do you make of these stories out there over the last couple of months since the election? there are so many hillary clinton supporters who are so traumatized. they are going to therapists. they are clogging online bulletin boards. they are getting into fights with relatives who supported donald trump. and they now have this new thing called pesd. post election stress disorder? >> well, i think, number one there is a big missed opportunity in naming it post election stress disorder. i would have preferred them to name it post inauguration stress disorder. that way they could have called it pissed. there is a big difference being pissed off about things and what happens on the battlefield. and i mean that i have empathy for maybe the stress that is
in people's lives as a result of this election. but, that doesn't mean that there is any real comparison to service members that have been targeted by snipers. that have been blown up, that have had to take the lives of their enemies. that have had their uniforms stained by the blood of their friends or have had to bury friends year after year after year have been on deployments year after year. there is not a comparison between the two in my opinion. steve: i'm with you on that. thank you for your service and your sacrifice. since so many people that we're talking about are upset about donald trump. i'm curious from your post as a brand new congressman from florida, how do you think he is doing? >> you know, i think there is going to be a major divide that occurred no matter who was president. you have one side, my side that wants to drastically cut the size of government, get rid of, you know, government intruding in people's lives and business and individuals. and one side that wants more government. so no matter what, there is going to be a great deal of disruption that occurred anyways.
you know, to be critical of my own side, i think we could do a much better job of messaging things out there. if people have stress over what's going on with the affordable care act or over what's going on with tax reform or anything else from executive orders that president trump is putting out, then that's our fault for doing a bad job of messaging it to some degree. but i think there is going to be a level of disruption because there are two completely differing opinions about the direction of this country. one for more government. one for less government. steve: well put. congressman, thank you for joining us on this tuesday morning. >> thank you. steve: all right. let's see if they change the name of that syndrome. probably not. just saying. speaking of the left, are your family and friends confused over what donald trump is doing? well, help is on the way in the next hour of "fox & friends" live from new york city. and washington, d.c. ♪ go on ♪ take the money and run

immigrants apprehended on the border, expedited deportation hearings. the hiring of 15,000 additional ice and border patrol agents. aggressive new measures targeting criminal aliens. and parents who pay to smuggle their children across the border may be prosecuted. now, this comes on the heels of massive protests by immigration groups in major cities like los angeles and new york who held not my president rallies yesterday e it's important to note guys that today's launch is not the revised executive order, travel ban that we do expect coming any day, possibly today. and when it does it will target those same seven countries, has exemptions for visas, green card holders and dual citizens and not have automatic ban on syrian refugees. our own judge andrew napolitano speaking out about it earlier on this program. >> what we are looking for and might come as soon as today, it might come as soon as this morning, is the president's new executive order.
so, instead of appealing what the ninth circuit did, he's going to rip up the old order. >> so the message is clear the white house is saying we are cracking down on illegal immigration. fasten your seat belts, we plan to get busy today. steve: one thing not included in this, it will not overturn dhaka, the immigration order signed by president obama where kids who were brought into this country at a young age are still able to stay here after they have applied for a work permit or something like that. about 700,000 people are impacted by that that soft table at this point. ainsley: judge napolitano says he definitely expects lawsuits. those attorneys out there are waiting on the president to release new executive order. we're curious to find out how the mainstream media is going to handle. this. steve: i think so. ainsley: i think so, too. brian: they're going to attack. keep in mind everyone has been calling for immigration and immigration overhaul. reset immigration. very close to the gang of 8 last time with democrats and
republicans. everyone pays the price doesn't get done. bush tried it, clinton tried did and obama tried it. donald trump is slowly but surely getting the criminals out. build the law within the next month or two. visiting things like dhaka and people overstaying their visas. little by little do what three presidents couldn't do. steve: listen, he has he already gotten a lot done according to new national security advisor yesterday. it's been announced that rex tillerson is draining the swamp. a lot of people seventh floor at the state department the permanent government were let go last week. there is also some suggestion that in the next couple of days, accord ing to "the washington post, apparently, through executive order, the president is going to undo some of president obama's climate restrictions. brian: that will go over well that will be smooth. ainsley: a lot of people out there not happy. yesterday was presidents' day.
steve: not my presidents' day to some. ainsley: not my presidents' day. nbc tweeted this out president trump reaches 32 days. won't be the shortest u.s. president. they are referring to president harrison who died in 1841 after serving just 32 days because he died of pneumonia. brian: that's on a legitimate nbc news site? ainsley: that's right. brian: verified? steve: nbc news.com. talking about how there is a lot of fake news out there. there are some stories that are wrong. he calls that fake news. he says essentially the media, enemies of the american people. i think perhaps they are the opposition party would be more accurate. but when you look at some of stuff because the press pretty much said he has declared a war on journalists. yesterday they compared him to nixon during watergate. katie tur couldn't recall barack obama's flexibility russians. columnist at "the washington post" margaret sullivan feared
that journalists would be hunted down. which kind of sounds like what katie tur was suggesting in this sound bite from earlier. >> as we know, since 2000 there have been a couple dozen suspicious deaths of journalists in russia who came out against the government there. donald trump has made no secret about going after journalists and his distaste for any news that doesn't agree with him here. do you find that this is a dangerous path he is heading down? brian: implicating that yeah he thinks donald trump is going to hunt her down. meanwhile rush limbaugh says the problem with this whole situation is you're supposed to have a fair press. the press should not have a bias. if the press is pretending to be fair and balanced and they actually have a bias, what good are they doing? listen. >> what the first amendment does for the press is the same thing it gives everybody else. they can say what they want to say.
that's essentially what the first amendment says for the press like it says for you and me. it singles them out and references them in terms of their importance, a free and intimidated, unattached media. nobody objects to that. it does not grant them immunity from criticism. it does not grant them freedom to be disagreed with. it does not grant them freedom from opposition. they seem to think that it does. ainsley: he was saying that journalists can dig up dirt on everyone else and report it and tell you about the, you know, whatever is happening in their personal life. but, yet, when someone goes against these individuals in the mainstream media they can't take it. steve: they hate it. we need objective adversarial press. is the press really objective when you look at it? and according to the center for public integrity in the last election of the $400,000
they knew before i think it was in mid october that was being donated to the campaign of hillary clinton and/or donald trump, 96% went to hillary clinton. so, if 96% of the reporters who reported where their money was going were on team hillary, do you really think it is that objective news media that we really -- ainsley: look, senator mccain says he is all for free press. last night bill o'reilly was saying is it really free press if you are so ow overtly liberal you are being objective. brian: 3,000 on the outside and 3,000 on the inside? orlando. everyone is focusing on the emotion that it was delivered, the way it was delivered and the momentum it gained back, they were focusing on one line where he said look at what was happening in sweden. looking at tucker carlson's show looking immigration issues and documentary by ami horowitz. sweden is a problem. taking in more refugee esper
capita than any other european nation. even though the nation in that region. they see what happens in brussels in belgium. they see what happens in france. see what's happening in germany and sweden seems to have a crime issue. everyone is saying w sweden comes back we don't have a crime issue. the immigrants meshed in fine. facts and the way interpret the facts. listen to ami horowitz this morning. >> pushing back don't know what they are talking about or disingenuous or lying. stats are clear. rape is up and murder is up almost 80% since 2012 to 2016 in sweden. those are the swedish statistics. brian: are the assailants immigrants? >> here's the thing so statistically you don't know because what happened in 2001 the background of the people who committed the assault. brian: no longer. >> they scrubbed that from the stat. antidotally, there is a lot of correlation that they are, in
fact, committed by primarily by them. steve: what had donald trump said he went in a riff on terrorism. he said look at sweden. last night, what's happening in sweden. sweden. then of course some swedish officials came out and said what is he smoking? what is he talking about? that's what is he talking about. brian: we will see where the facts lie. the prime minister came out and denied it. heather childers has the news. heather: breaking news this morning this alert coming out of barcelona spain. firing stay truck packed with gas cylinders as the driver sped toward the heart of the capital. these are live pictures from their right now. this is where police say that the driver stole the truck and was going the wrong way down one of the city's main streets. witnesses saying that gas canisters fell into the street, hurting one person. according to local news reports, the driver is a swedish national under arrest. right now we do not know if this is a foiled terror attack or if the driver was on drugs.
they are looking at all possibilities. well, a police officer shot and killed in the line of duty by a gang member out on parole. the officer was responding to a car crash when the driver pulled out a gun. police say the gun maine was released from jail just two weeks ago also killed his cousin and stole his car hours earlier. officer keith boyar a 27 year veteran of the department died at the scene. >> the impact to the department is going to last for years. you know, it's really hard for me to hold bac back my tears. because all of us have been grieving since 10:00 this morning. ainsley: incredible outpouring of support as hundreds of officers accompanied his body from the hospital. boyer's partner also wounded

ainsley: as we await a new executive order on immigration. stunning new report estimates it might cost american taxpayers over $4 billion to care for refugees this year. is that true? well, joining us now is the man who has crunched all the numbers in the past he is a research director for the senator for immigration studies. steven camerota. thank you so much for being with us, steven. >> good morning. ainsley: good morning. is it true it's going to cost us 4 billion-dollar this year? >> if you say look at the refugees we have taken in the last five years, which is about a half a million, sure. when you take into account all the things that we do special for refugees, plus the heavy use of all kinds of welfare that they are allowed to use, it would easily total four or five maybe $6 billion. ainsley: just to show folks at home how much that would buy you. you can buy with 4.1 to be exact. 11,000 new homes for $384,000 each. which is an expensive home. you can buy 170,000 new cars
that would cost you $24,000 each. you know, when i was looking at these statistics earlier, steven, i was wondering how much -- how many veterans would be helped if we spent $4 billion? how many school teachers? how many police officers could be helped, folks that are paying taxes that live here? >> look. i mean, it's all a fair point f we look at immigrants, refuse agrees from the middle east about 0% receive food stamps. three quarters on medicaid. these are some very big numbers. we could do a lot of other things with that money, including maybe help more people in the region, rather than bring them here. when they come here the cost is very high. we could help maybe 12 times as many people in the region for the same amount of money. and that is an important policy question that doesn't get asked enough. is this the best use of our money? >money? ainsley: steven, let's look at some of the numbers from 2015. the number that arrived here in 2015, most of them on food stamps.
almost 93% are on food stamps. almost 68% on medicaid. and then we're giving cash assistance to 72% of them. listen, we all have a heart for other people and we want to help other people, but how long are these folks on well welfare? are we forcing them to get a job after three months. >> the idea is to always try to make folks self-sufficient. remember, a very large fraction have very little education. a lot of them don't have any ties to the united states and welfare is pretty attractive. even if you follow them many years out a large fraction still use welfare. things do improve over time but the cost remain big. ainsley: they surely do. steven cam rot tax thank you for breaking it all down for us. >> thank you for having me. ainsley: you are welcome. next on the rundown we found one place where heck is the president. what? and are your liberal friends having a hard time understanding president trump? how to explain it to them in three easy steps.

brian: quick headlines now. do you know a hillary clinton supporter that can't september reality that donald trump is the united states. a new website just for them it's called hillary beat trump.org. satirical website covers headlines from alternative universe with hillary clinton in the white house. approval ratings for hillary clinton hits 89%. considers donald trump treason. mcilroy because he played golf with president trump.
pretty shocked rory played with golf. he was injured he had a perfect excuse to dodge it. massive error of judgment. steve: ever wondered what makes president trump tick? turns out he laid it out in his first book "the art of the deal." here former assistant to president george w. bush a guy who used to work inside the white house brad blakeman. when people say brad, you worked in white houses, what makes this guy tick, you actually put your thinking cap on and drew this allusion, didn't you? >> i did. in 1989, president trump gave me his book. i read it at the time. as is he running for president i reread it. there is no mystery who president trump is. if you took time due diligence and read his book. starts out chapter 1 his schedule. the fact is as a businessman he had 150 to 15 to 20 minute meetings a day.
reached out to 20 people in phone calls. bring it up today. some of those phone calls are tweets or facebook posts. art of the deal is 11 points. business points about thinking big, selling the deal. surrounding yourself with good people. fighting back. these are all principles by which made donald trump a successful businessman and now he is using them as president. steve: all right. so let's run some sound bites and you can analyze what it seems to be from the book that is the principle behind it. first of all, how many times do we hear him say this? >> build that wall. build that wall. build that wall. build that wall. build that wall. [chanting build that wall] >> going to build that wall. >> do not worry. we are going to build the wall. okay? [cheers] steve: brad, you say what he is doing there is he is getting the word out. how did he explain that?
>> you have to be able to sell what you're offering. and the best way to selling it is doing it yourself is understanding the deal. first of all, is he thinking big. he is thinking of building a wall. he is inspiring people. is he selling the deal. this is what has made him a success as a businessman. this is what will make him a success as a president. one of the most most important deal points of the president is delivering on the deal. not merely selling something, you have to close the deal. once he closes the deal, is he onto the next deal. strength from strength e that's what mr. trump is about. steve: one of the things that he really wants to get in to people's head is he is drying to create as many jobs as possible. listen to this. >> i campaigned on the promise that i will do everything in my power to bring those jobs back in to america. since november, jobs have already begun to surge. we are seeing them keep jobs at home. ford, general motors, fiat chrysler, just to name a very,
very few. steve: there he is trying to deliver the goods that he promised. >> right. and is he using his leverage. look, as a businessman he used the trump name and himself. as president, he is using the leverage of the united states. making america first. using all the power that the united states has economically, socially, politically, and militarily. it's exactly the principle that he used as a businessman every day in building buildings. steve: sure. because sea businessman. that's what is he doing in this sound bite. listen to this. >> i got the folks in from lockheed martin. i got bowling. in i said do me a favor, give mia competing offer. now they are competing and fighting, and we have gotten hundreds of millions of dollars off the price of a plane that was going to be ordered. they are going to make plenty of money but a lot less they would have made without trump. that, i can tell you. steve: after the deal all
about containing the cost. that is what he is doing there. >> containing the cost warning not to be greedy. get the best deal you can be happy with a good deal. a deal is only as good as it is for both parties. if you overreach, it's not a good deal for me or for you. i'm trying to get out of a bad deal. what the president is saying is look, you are entitled to make a profit. just don't take us to the cleaners. steve: sure. just one -- three other quick notes. you must create excitement. he is good at that you have to fight back. you never back down. and he never gives up. does he? >> never gives up. that's the key to closing a deal. when you think you are down, get back up, sell et deal. get the parties together. and, steve, the most important principle in this book has been a dirty word in washington that's compromise. both sides have to compromise to get the deal. is he transactional guy and that means success for america because he is going to make deals. steve: sounds like half hour from now he is going to start selling that immigration plan and we'll watch it here on

that we have been used to. but the pride of living in america. we keep our pocketbooks open for the unfortunate. we don't let anybody starve. abby: a lot of good people. i want to point this out before. steve doocy you met barbara at the inauguration in the hotel. she showed me a picture. i think we have it if we can pull it up on the screen. >> he remembers me because i called him peter. abby: no. you accidently called him peter. it's complement. >> a lot of people think we are brothers and a lot of people call me peter. that picture was taken. abby: toss it back to you. steve: abby, that picture was taken at our hotel the hyatt on capitol hill. and there she is. and whoever took the picture, did not do a very good job of taking her picture. ainsley: they just took a picture of you. she said i want a picture of steve and they took her literally. brian: don't forget a town

patient's spines and left a surgical sponge inside a patient. drugs are disappearing from hospitals for veterans. sparking a massive investigation. right now as many as 100 open criminal investigations into drug thefts across the country. officials say that the v.a. hospitals haven't been keeping up with tracking their drug splice. saying that staff may be taking advantage of that stealing the medication for their own use or to sell on the streets. and a disgusting affect vandalism. listen to this one. horrifying a church twice within two weeks. someone has beheaded a jesus statue outside cottage avenue pentecostal fellowship in minneapolis. the first time the vandals left the head behind. church members managed to reattach it saturday. but then by sunday morning it was ripped back off and missing. they are unsure if someone seeking just a thrill or trying to send some sort of message to the church. those are look at your headlines back to you. brian: they have to get a video doorbell record.

in cities for the first time in my lifetime to declare the holiday not my presidents' day. but are any of these protests have any effect? what are these people doing with all their free time? let's ask former seal carl higbie. a lot of these guys and these women who protest think they are getting to trump with these protests. >> i don't know what they are trying to get at. they proposed zero solutions and goals. you are not going to throw them out of office. what do you want out of this? they can't answer that question. i have asked these people on streets in diners and restaurants. what do you want? we're angry. that's nice. hit a punching bag. get a job. brian: shane sanders one of the protesters good enough to come on with tucker carlson. i'm marching because i'm gay. what he is doing to gay. what is donald trump doing to gay people. >> there might be executive order that could give us trouble. really? no one knows what he is talking about. but then he went on to say, carl, that you are wrong. that they are getting to the president.
>> i think they are definitely making an impact. you see it's called a movement. as you have noticed the protests are growing getting larger. multiple protests coming up. north a stand still. it's a movement. i definitely think it's getting to trump i would say so as well. we see he is getting frazzled by the media and i definitely think they are making a definite impact. brian: i think the tea party made impact with their series of protests. you don't think he and others are making impact with these protests? >> let's compare the two. look, the tea party, there has been, what, give or take zero arrests at tea party rallies for people that were actually there to participate in the tea party rally. we came out with solutions we want budget resolutions and certain policies. we came out -- brian: didn't like obamacare. you thought the stimulus was being wasted. >> we came out on certain issues and avenues. this is ridiculous. this is not productive. this is destructive. lots of protests. they are trashing places. this is not productive.

steve: well, let's talk trends on friends. the day without immigrants protest last thursday turned into a life without jobs for many workers, fired for not showing up to work and those former bosses now feeling the heat online. ainsley: here with more on today's top trends is fox news headlines 24/7 reporter carlie shimkus. what happened with those folks at the restaurant in oklahoma who decided not to go to work because they wanted to protest. >> the restaurant is i don't heart bar and grill.
they are facing negative reviews against facebook and yelp after owner fired 12 employees reportedly over a text message. we have a screen graph of that you and your family are fired. i hope you enjoy your day off and you can enjoy many more. love you. some people saying that that tone may have not been the best. steve: the place is called i don't care, hello. ainsley: no show policy. ainsley: ains. >> people on social media are credit sighing the restaurant and on or about. james is he says the staff something nice but the owner very closed minded. he was unable to seat big picture. the food had been terrible since they fired all their big chefs. it sucks bigly. i wouldn't eat here if i were you. albert says i have n at the. far better places to eat in the area. brian: get a little bit of
revenge. >> the owner bill mcnally says he fired these 12 employee he is because they didn't tell him they were not going to slow up for work. he has fired other people in the past. he has no tolerance policy. you don't show up you don't get paid. ainsley: they should have given him the benefit and said can you fill my spot? we're not going to show up, just like any employee would have done. we want to rally. he would have been supportive of that i'm sure. >> there you go. steve: another people who showed up in europe yesterday was vice president mike pence. >> he was in brussels speaking with european leader. take at that flag behind him. do you notice anything strange about it too many stars. big old starry night. folks on social media quickly pointed out there are 51 stars in the american flag. who counts these things? well god bless those patriots who did because there are actually 51 stars on that flag.
that footage and that picture is going viral. brian: puerto rico just jumped ahead. steve: barack obama said he visited all 57 states. we're a couple shorts. >> oops. ainsley: the oscars are this weekend? i feel like we just had the oscars. >> it's award season. speaking of a lot of award shows mocking the oscars for having so many categories and a lot of people are oscars we need brainstorming new categories that they think we might need marty says worst acceptance speech actually veiled politically veiled political statement only two or three hollywood clowns care about. deplorable biggest hypocrite of the year. this is my favorite. best portrayal of a teenager who someone actually played in their mid 30's and most overpaid actor. you don't want to win that category. brian: you know what's going to be big you will come back
here on monday they promise to get political. they are telegraphing how political they are going to get. >> we shall see. ainsley: a lot of our viewers don't want to watch, you will have to keep them up to date on monday. brian: see you on sirius 115 or listen to you. steve: meanwhile a fox news alert. any moment now we expect in the 8:00 hour president trump set to deliver details on a new immigration executive order. will this one survive the courts? the white house hopes so. and we're live at the white house coming up next. ainsley: still need proof of mainstream media bias how about this one from nbc president trump reaches 32 days. won't be the shortest u.s. president. does that sound like it's fair and honest reporting to you? ♪ i hear the secrets that you keep ♪ when you're talking in your sleep ♪ ♪ . at fidelity, we let you know where you stand,
executive orders that the president signed back on january the 25th. one on border security, including building the wall. the other on prioritizing the removal of criminal aliens. here's a couple of highlights. first of all, the one on border security calls for the hiring of 10,000 additional immigration and customs enforcement agents and an additional 5,000 border patrol agents. now, this is something the president talked about many times in the campaign trail, so, no, surprise there. and in terms of prior type o prioritizing the removal of criminal aliens, they would prioritize anyone who has been charged with a criminal offense that has not been resolved. anyone who has abused public benefit programs, or anyone who is subject to removal order but is still in the
country basically deported but they haven't left yet. it also increases the participation in something called the 287g program, this is between the federal government and local law enforcement along the border in which they can deputize if you will local law enforcement to help out in immigration proceedings. now, there was an erroneous report last friday that is part of this 287g program. the national guard would be called in. that was not true. that was in an earl draft. nobody ever took that seriously, so that is not happening. this expansion of this partnership program related solely to law enforcement in states along the barriered and probably continuous states as well. and also here in terms of building the wall just like with the pipelines, president trump wants the people who build the wall to use materials made here in america. furthering his hire american. buy american mantra, which he
believes will further this economy. brian: that's going to be interesting. the more you look at it is going to have different kinds of wall and fencing and barriers depending on what part of the state you're in, what part of the country you're in. so it's going to be interesting. ainsley: john, can you go in there and tell them to compromise? we want it at 8:30. >> i'll.com best, ainsley. ainsley: thanks, john. meanwhile, i don't think the president has done any tweeting yet today, but we do know he was out tweeting about how -- in fact, john just mentioned that ap story that said 100,000 national guardsman were going to be used to round up fake news, according to the president. also referred to the news media as the enemy of the american people. brian: i think he walked by singing that. steve: well, i think opposition to the political right of where donald trump is. and if you look at some of the media things that they have put out lately and not just
sound bytes but tweets as well. you do wonder who's side they're on. ainsley: you're right. there's so many to lift. we'll start with one that nbc put out yesterday. you know, yesterday was president's day, and they had all of these rallies across the country called not my president's day and nbc put this tweet out. president trump reaches 32 days. won't be the shortest u.s. president. because president william harrison died at 32 days of pneumonia. so now president trump has lasted a little longer. brian: there's a lot of people who think he should be impeached already. ainsley: he hasn't done anything illegal. brian: i know even though democrats a little extreme for them. katie came out and was open about the journalists here in america being knocked off because of donald trump. listen. >> as we know there's been
since 2000 a couple thousand suspicious deaths of journalists in russia who came out against the government there. donald trump has made no secret about going after journalists and his distaste for any news here. do you find that this is a dangerous path he's heading down? steve: she's not alone in that. margaret sullivan from the washington post feared that journalists will be hunted down because this president simply doesn't like the press. meanwhile, the press very comfortable in dealing with people on the political left. robbie was the campaign manager for hillary clinton. he lost it big time. he was on cbs where they were throwing him hardballs? no, not really. watch this. >> it's like 1972 alluding to watergate. >> look, somebody broke into the dnc. they didn't do it physically this time they did it digitally. it was a foreign country. the president has been lying about it. he lied about whether the staff were talking to russia.
and the more we learn, the scary it gets. brian: that is not true. the other thing john podesta, ryan fallon. they had an election that they were supposed to win against an unknown candidate and they're worried about getting hired again, so they have to blame somebody else. steve: but if you notice right there what he did was he went back to the original talking point and that is the narrative that hillary clinton could not lose unless russia hacked the election. and russia hacked the election and now we have this friend of putin named donald trump in the white house. that's what they continue to go back to time and time again. brian: wasn't she the one talked about the danger of democracy if we don't trust our elections. if you challenge the election how dangerous it is that donald trump was saying if it doesn't come out right. ainsley: you mean hillary clinton had the secret server in her basement? that one? steve: yeah, that one. and also it goes back to the fbi where they released those documents where they talked about hillary clinton's
investigation, which never would have happened if she had not had that thing down in her basement. ainsley: right. we asked you what you thought about this and many of you wrote in. thank you, tim, for this twee tweet. we deploreables don't really care about how the media feels. we care about giving our potus a chance to help our country. steve: and can't take criticism but dishes it out. american people are sick and tired of hearing negative news about donald trump who is president and the first family. ainsley: she agrees with rush limbaugh saying you can dig up all the dirt but it can't be reported on you. brian: and the more the public tunes them out. i think donald trump would go a long way. i think this week going to meet with congressional black caucus. senator schumer won't play ball, there's at least six other democrats on the other side that will. i think he can start bringing together and maybe it can start this week. i know he's going to visit the
african-american smithsonian museum some time today. ainsley: it's just so important for journalists to report the facts. because i'm wondering is this going to backfire on the mainstream media or will it help them? steve: well, we've heard president trump last week at that press conference say that the opinion of the american people of the american press is lower than congress. we need an objective, aggressive press. no doubt. but the whole thing is if they're not objective because they're so aligned with the ideas of the political left of the democrat party, are they really objective? ainsley: are they really a free press if they're so overly liberal. steve: thanks for joining us on this tuesday. heather is joining us today with headlines. ainsley: good morning. >> good morning to everyone at home. we begin with a story a terror take down in france. that's where three suspects are now in custody accused of plotting an advanced attack. counterterrorism police say that the men are accused of wanting to go to syria or
planning attacks in france. a bomb squad called to one of the suspects' homes. specific details about their plot still unknown. and another alert, this one coming out of the barcelona, spain. police firing on this stolen truck packed with butane gas cannisters. he has been identified as a swedish national. dramatic chase when the police fired through the windshield. it was unclear if this was a foiled terror attack. and shot in the line of duty by a gang community while out in patrol. whittier, california responded to a car crash when the driver pulled out a gun. the driver was released from jail just two weeks ago stole his car 24 hours earlier. a 27 year veteran of the department died at the scene.
>> all of us have been grieving since 10:00 this morning. everybody needs to know what these officers are dealing with out there on a daily basis. you have no idea how it has changed in the last four years. >> incredible outpouring of support as hundreds of officers accompanied his body from the hospital. his partner who was also wounded will be okay. and finally, some heartbreaking news to our fox family this morning. bulls and bears host brenda buttner has passed away after a long fought battle with cancer. brenda joined fox in 2000. she was a harvard graduate and a road scholar. neil cavuto paying this touching tribute to her. >> in her sickest moments balloting an unrelenting cancer there was brenda cheering you on. she took stock of life more than any stock in life. it's what separated her from anyone else in this business.
when is the last time -- the last time you laughed at a business show? i don't know. this is journalism. it's never going to be the same. i just don't know now that she's gone if there will ever be. >> brenda was 55 years old. ainsley: she was only 55 years old and leaves behind two precious daughters. >> two beautiful daughters. ainsley: posted a picture of one of her daughters being able to vote for the first time and how proud she was. >> she was one of the very first friends i made from fox. steve: she lived one town over, and i would say her at the gym every once in a while. wonderful, wonderful person. brian: and there was no one better to eulogize her than neil cavuto. must have been tough. ainsley: we're warning you. get out your kleenexes. neil cavuto did about a
ten-minute tribute to her. steve: wonderful person. she will be missed. ainsley: we are thinking about her family and those two girls this morning. coming up, some liberals are outraged over president trump's immigration plans. but what if we told you president trump is being more generous than president obama? that's next. steve: and he just took on the toughest job in the country. he's going to try to fix the va. >> i could be fired right now. i mean, half of our viewers could be fired when they walk into work tomorrow for not doing their job or not showing up, but you have va workers who sell cocaine or don't show up or view porn at work. steve: exclusive sit down with the new boss at the va ahead. z2a1gz zx9z

he is calling for 10,000 new ice officers and agents as well as 5,000 new hires at the customs and border patrol agency. while many critics continue to blast the president's public stance on illegal immigration. the question remains is mr. trump's policy harbor than president obama's? let's ask an immigration attorney matthew who has been on the show before. good to see you, matthew. >> thank you for having me. ainsley: you're welcome. so when you look at the facts, the media is going to portray president trump as this illegal deporter. is that true when you compare to president obama? >> well, president obama's deportation priorities that were established back in 2014 closely mirror those that we have seen in the memorandum that came out over the weekend. and those priorities that president obama had were harsh. he was prioritizing refugee children who were coming to the united states, fast tracking their deportation, and he went one step further by putting mothers, young mothers with children in
deportation camps in places like berk in pennsylvania. and these are christians, evangelical asylum seekers. and they've spent the better part of a year and a half in a jail and some of these children, young children spent half of their lives in a deportation jail. and we're hoping that president trump will see the humanitarian concerns that are present and release them. ainsley: okay. you work with immigrants that are coming into our country as an attorney trying to get them to become legal citizens. what do you see? take us inside and what do you see and what the real problem is? >> the real problem is we have a law that requires some tweaks that would allow the 11 million people that are here without any type of status to get in the back of the line. because right now there's no line to get back into. and i'm hopeful that within the next two years, republicans and democrats can come together and put aside their differences and work towards a solution. ainsley: what do you think about these numbers? we were talking earlier with a guest. we were looking at the numbers.
spending as a country $5 billion a year on these refugees that are coming from other countries and a majority of them are on welfare. >> well, i'm not sure about those statistics, but i do know that if there are individuals that are in the united states that have children, those children that are united states citizens are entitled to whatever benefits any other child would have. ainsley: what about -- i mean, obviously we all love children. we want to help everyone. but what about our veterans that are being left behind and aren't getting the care they need? >> they absolutely need to be protected as well as people who have green cards that have served in the military that are facing deportation. and that's been a serious problem under the last president. ainsley: all right. good deal. matthew, thank you for being with us. >> thank you. ainsley: coming up just when you thought it was over that disgusting painting that show police as pigs is back in the headlines. and refugees leaving the united states heading to canada. our next guest says see you

steve: we've got some more quick tuesday headlines for you. first up this painting portraying police as pigs has been hung -- has been hung for a while and then taken down, up, down, up, down, now it is the center of a lawsuit. democratic congressman lacey clay expected to file suit this morning against the architect of the u.s. capitol for removing the painting from the capitol complex.
clay argues removing the painting violates his constituents right to free speech. and american grammar is racist and has an unjust language structure. that message coming from the university of tacoma's writing center. this poster now hangs in the center saying the school will prioritize rhetoric over grammatical correctness. brian: could be today holding firm his promise to keep americans safe. >> i've taken decisive action to keep radical islamic terrorists of hell out of our country. brian: our next guest stands with the president saying the countries included in the order are an absolute mess and there's a reason so many of them are running to get here. joining us right now to discuss it, u.s. army veteran
silver star recipient and best author, david is also going to have his become becoming a movie, and it is absolutely unbelievable. david, you actually were in hand-to-hand combat in fallujah literally no weapons just hand-to-hand with the terrorist threat. you've seen it. you stared at it. are you worried about it coming here and is president trump doing the right fortunately to stop it? >> well, absolutely. we've got seven countries that are on this list, brian, and i remember doing vehicle checkpoints with my buddies. we pull over a 35-year-old iraqi driver and his license had a picture of him when he was 12 years old. i mean, sadam is known for a lot of things but having a robust department of motor vehicles wasn't one of them. these countries have no centralized government. they have no data-keeping systems at all. all we can do is we're trying to just mitigate the potential probabilities of threat.
and when you have seven countries that are in open war that you can't even fly into their national airports, this is a serious problem. and finally we have a commander-in-chief who is a wartime president who takes this threat seriously. brian: who has a lot of generals around him. and i always thought if someone's been to war, they'll be the last person to ever bring us to war. they understand the threat. so when he goes to put a seven-nation pause on the vet so we can analyze and put a vetting process to, a lot of people says that puts a bias towards islam. and that sends the wrong message to the world. what do you say? >> well, here's the reality of the enemy that we pace i face in the middle east. the only thing that we can really -- the enemy today is more akin to the japanese in world war ii than anyone else. when you have an enemy that believes that their internal salvation is predicated on the disposition that they have on
the battlefield, that fatalism, how else are -- we've never fought anything like this before. they are -- they're not going to leave the battle space. they're going to go out there and take as many of the enemy out as they possibly can. we are looking at this through westernized. this is an eastern philosophy. and i just for the life of me can't understand. we have right now a president who built a wartime cabinet, and we're very appreciative of veterans of this war, especially. brian: david, if you're in that club in orlando, if you're at fort hood, if you're in sabtah christmas party, or if you've been in fallujah trying to take that city back with a bunch of american military, you understand the terror threat. what do you have to say to the american people who haven't seen it? >> first of all, i hope to god you've never seen it, and it's the men and women who fight this war and department of
homeland security to make sure that that never happens to americans here. but there are eight and ten-year oldest who are preparing for the second generational wave of this fight. and we're just too far incubated and, unfortunately, naïve to think that this war is going to end with this generation. we have to be ready as a culture and a society to protect what we love and hold due. brian: so you would back the president as he does it. what's the best way to relay it? i know you're more of a war fighter than a war communicator. but what's the best way to rely that to the american people? >> well, you know people go back to the draft all the time, and they say that, you know, the draft as a professional military, you know, service men, we're much better off not having a draft because our men and women out there are professionals, and they want to be there. but one of the things that we lost in the draft, we gained a sense of entitlement and a sense of national ignorance when everyone didn't have skin
in the fight. one-tenth of 1% are out there fighting this thing. and i think we need to listen to the men and women who have been there. we have generals now in positions like department of homeland security and nsa who have been there, cut their teeth in vietnam, are continuing to serve, and we need to support those guys. brian: yeah, let them lead.l lie you've been there without being there, pick up that book. david, thank you so much. >> thank you, brian, appreciate it. brian: 30 minutes until the top of the hour. up next. he just took on the toughest job in the country trying to fictitious the va. >> i could be fired right now. half of our viewers could be fired when they walk into work tomorrow for not doing their job or not showing up but you have va workers who sell cocaine or view porn at work. brian: can he fix it? pete up next with the exclusive interview. and it was the worst night of their lives when hillary clinton lost the election. now being compared to what our soldiers go through when they come home from war. really? really?
this is the story of green mountain coffee and fair trade, told in the time it takes to brew your cup. let's take a trip to la plata, colombia. this is boris calvo. that's pepe. boris doesn't just grow good coffee, boris grows mind-blowing coffee. and because we pay him a fair price, he improves his farm to grow even better coffee
and invest in his community, which makes his neighbor, gustavo, happy. that's blanca. yup, pepe and blanca got together. things happen. all this for a smoother tasting cup of coffee. green mountain coffee. packed with goodness. when it comes toor hospital romances, the more complicated, the better. i love you. but i love him. i love him, too. so do i. they also know you should get your annual check-up. it could save your life. it's american heart month. schedule your check-up to learn your four health numbers so you can maintain a healthy heart. cigna. together, all the way.
don't let the food you eat during the day haunt you at night. nexium 24hr... shuts down your stomach's active acid pumps... to stop the burn of frequent heartburn... all day and night. have we seen them before? banish the burn with nexium 24hr. trump: hr mcmaster will become the national security adviser. he's a man of tremendous talent and tremendous experience. i watched and read a lot over the last two days. he is highly respected by everybody in the military, and we're very honored to have him. steve: okay. so there you have donald trump in the big room introducing the new national security adviser. pete deals with all things military, and he joins us right now from his hometown of minneapolis.
what do you think of general mcmaster? >> outstanding pick. he understands the nature of our enemy at the tactical level but also the nature of the fight at the strategic level. this guy's been in combat, is a captain engaging tanks as a tank commander but also a rest of town in attack that he is a commander that has made sure that the counter insurgent strategy has worked. he is universally respected and what's so unique about his background, he's been in the fight tactically, and then moves as a strategist and then gets back on the tactical side. no better thinker. no better warrior. and alongside mattis and kelly and the team that has already been built, he will do a great job. he's also going to have to be willing to challenge president trump if he has a different opinion. this guy wrote the book on challenging a president. about the failure of joint chiefs in vietnam to challenge political assumptions. so i think this guy is going to give honest advice to the president. brian: and we understand that
senator tom cotton served under him and said you've got to give mcmaster a good look and then mattis convinced him you better go do this. i need you. so together, it's pretty much of an all-star team. when you have democrats praising these picks, you know that you probably did the right thing. >> yeah, the adults are in the room. it's exactly what president trump said he was going to do. i'm going to bring in the a team. the a plus team. and i'm going to be the leader that speaks about the nature of this threat and how we need to win this war and then i'm going to bring in the best conceivable people and when cotton and david petraeus say this is your guy, then you know you're onto something. and this is a guy who was the executer of a lot of the high people of war in 9/11. ainsley: you've been on this show so many times talking about the va and how we need to improve the va system. someone who knows because you served two tours. you had an exclusive interview with the va secretary, the new guy in charge, what do you think? >> that's right. i had the chance to sit down with secretar secretary
yesterday, his sixth day on the job and asked him what could arguably be the toughest job in dc fighting the bureaucracy and the outside groups to giving the veterans what they deserve. it was a wide ranging 45-minute interview. we're going to play one portion now about accountability. what will he do to take on the swamp because the sump won't want him to succeed. i asked him about it. >> i've been part of the swamp. there's oftentimes a very strong bill. but then when it meets the veterans dc-based veterans group or the american federation unions or some of the committees gets diluted down big time to the point where it really looks good and everyone gets to pat themselves on the back that they did something about accountability, but it really doesn't change the environment. what can you say to viewers out there that want to make sure you're committed to a real accountability bill? >> yeah. well, look, if we get a bill and if it doesn't work, you can expect i'm going to be back in front of congress saying this didn't work. but the bottom line is the
results. okay? and we're going to have to have a workforce that is committed to making sure that the right people are working there. i think there's nothing demoralizing to the thousands and thousands of people who serve every day in the va doing a fantastic job. very committed. i see it when i practice in the va. these are the best people in health care working the va. but when you have one or two or three people that really aren't doing their job, they bring everybody down. so the best thing i know from my private sector experiences, you've got to deal with that. you have to get them out of the system because it helps not only the veterans, but it helps the people who work in the va who are trying to do the right thing for veterans. >> bob macdonald oftentimes is the opposite. he said how are we going to hire people here if they think they can be fired at a whim or at -- for -- at a moment's notice? but your argument is if you can't fire those poor performers, then you don't have a good culture sop would
you say you take a different position than secretary macdonald did who fought against a lot of these accountability bills? >> well, i think what i heard the secretary saying is it's very important to have a due process. you don't want to fire people. >> i could be fired right now. half of our viewers could be fired when they walk into work right now for not doing their job. but you have va workers that sell cocaine or watch porn at work. >> watch us. people who show up to work and do cocaine or watching porn at work are going to be fired because i'm not going to tolerate it, and they're going to be out of our system, and you watch our results there. but remember, we're talking about the vast, vast majority of our employees are dedicated -- they could be working anywhere in health care. but they choose to work at the va, and i'm going to support them, and i'm going to stand behind them. >> a lot of people who have been fighting this on the front lines already are whistle-blowers. the reason we know about phoenix to begin with where
the scandal started were whistle-blowers. i'm in regular contact with them. i'm sure you've heard from them as well. but secretary macdonald, the previous administration almost ignored them if not were outright hostile to them. have you met with whistle-blowers yet? and what is your commitment to make sure that those voices that are marginalized because they're trying to do well by vets to make sure those voices are heard? >> i've absolutely met with whistle-blowers. it is very important to do that, and i agree. they've brought very important issues to the forefront. and not only are we going to support those that tell us problems in the system because that's how we get better, but we're going to address those problems. and i know sometimes these are -- takes a while to address those problems. probably longer than it should. but we're going to make sure that just because it's hard to do, we're not going to stop. >> in addition to that, we talked about choice and whether or not he's going to -- how much access to private care veterans we'll get. ultimately, i think the secretary will be judged by his ability to implement president trump's ten-point plan, which is a bold
transformational plan. we also asked your viewers questions yesterday, and we asked him directly questions from fox and friends. later we're going to have a segment where your questions will be asked of the secretary. more to come. steve: the guy's got a tough question. let's get our fingers crossed that he can get something done. pete, thank you. >> thank you. steve: coming up, it was the worst night of their lives when hillary clinton lost the election and donald trump won. well, now that misery being compared to what our soldiers go through when they come home from war. not kidding. ainsley: and abby huntsman at a diner on the beach in jacksonville, florida having breakfast with friends. abby. >> hey, i'm with the owner's beautiful wife barbara, and we're both in purple this morning talking about your grandson jackson. he's right here. >> i want to give a shout out
to my grandson jackson. he was diagnosed with a inoperable brain tumor. he is a trump supporter. but he had to be in school this morning. so i want to thank abby and the entire fox team for being here and allowing us to give a very special shout out to a very special man. >> we miss you this morning, jackson. we'll be back right after this i am benedict arnold, the infamous traitor. and i know a thing or two about trading. so i trade with e*trade, where true traders trade on a trademarked trade platform that has all the... get off the computer traitor! i won't. (cannon sound) mobility is very important to me. that's why i use e*trade mobile.
steve: well, donald trump who we might actually see in a couple of minutes has not taken a break since traveling to florida this past weekend to do what he does best, speak with the american people and also play a little golf. ainsley: so how do they feel about his performance? let's check in with abby huntsman who is talking to the folks at beach diner in jacksonville, florida. hey, abby.
>> good morning, guys. billie and scott and murray. billie be what do you do? >> i'm a ceo coach. >> and you've even coached governor scott brown you said? >> no. governor scott of florida. yes, a long time ago. >> well, now look what he's doing. i'll give you credit for that. >> i'll take it. >> what are you passionate about? >> i'm passionate about my country and passionate about freedoms. i'm passionate about business owners and that they have freedom from regulations. so that's a really big thing for me. that's how i got involved in politics. i saw all the regulations coming down on our ceos, and it was incredible difficult to watch. >> what do you do? >> i'm a businessman. >> a lot of business owners in this diner this morning. >> yep. >> yes. >> what about you? what do you want to get done? what do you want president trump to focus on in these 100 days? >> immigration problem, just about everything he's doing. he's getting a lot done fast. >> do you think he's already following through on a lot of
those promises? >> yes, i do. i think he's getting a lot done very quickly and just keep going you know? >> keep going. all right. murray, you're a musician; is that right. >> that's correct. >> what do you play? >> piano and keyboards we can't has been use the term loosely in my case. but as far as president trump is concerned, he is doing so many things so fast, and it's unusual. we're not accustom to seeing applications actually do what they were they were going to do and president trump is doing that, as far as what i would love to see happen, i cannot wait to see obamacare repealed and replaced, and i do not want the federal government involved in our health care. >> health care is a big one. something he said he's going to tackle very soon. i'm going to run over here really quick to heather and her cute daughter. and we were talking earlier. a military wife. tell us what your husband does. >> my husband is a doctor for the uss new york which has made 11,000 tons of u.s. steel.
>> you're obviously very passionate about veterans and our military. >> yes, ma'am. i absolutely love the military, and i think sometimes people misunderstand what trump is trying to do with immigration and things like that. my husband is in all of his friends and things like that are the ones protecting our country, and i think it's very important to make sure that everybody that is coming here is safe before they get here. >> and you've been following this election in politics. what do you think about president trump? >> well, i really like trump because he's for the military and my dad is in the military in the navy, and he's on a ship, so i really like trump is his bos >> i love that. well, thank your husband for your service and you're only 10 years old. look at that. thank you, guys. we're going to have to leave it there but as you can see, so much to talk about. brian: families grow up quick in the military. thank you so much, abby. appreciate it. steve: good job down at the diner. i'm hungry now. brian: meanwhile going to be live at 7:00 doing a big town hall there so go in and be part of the audience. steve: i believe steven miller

steve: well, they cry, they've protested, they've created safe spaces and now there's a new term for those clinton voters stuck in a crippling depression over the new president. it's pesd. post election stress disorder. joining us right now with his reaction michael graham. michael, what do you make of this? >> well, my problem is that the pesd, the post election, it's the active stupidity syndrome. because if you really can't go to work or stay married or drive your car because of an election, you have a serious
ass problem somewhere. i'm telling you. ainsley: wait a minute. people are getting divorced over this? >> yes. there's a 22-year ended because the husband was going to vote for trump. my favorite part of the story -- and i actually went back and read the psychology today piece that kind of inspired all of this. there were people claiming that they were in car accidents and fender-benders because trump won -- i mean, i love those ads from spider-man, and they have, like, the statues. i can't wait to see the statue of i'm sorry, officer, trump won the election. you have serious personal problems. brian: yeah, the legendary producer says he feels like he has been raped. >> there's no fun in that. the ptsd comparison for those who have family members who served abroad, it is ridiculous, it is awful. but i want to ask this question. when did we start deciding that it was a horrifying
personal tragic when someone didn't vote for won the election. because plenty i didn't vote for won the elections. bill clinton never won a majority of the popular vote ever. so that means most people in america never voted for him. were we supposed to be not showing up for work? calling in sick? breaking up with our wives? i can't take it. bill clinton's in the white house. where does that come from? you. ainsley: you mention people who serve our country, steve had a guest earlier in the show. he's a republican from florida served our country, lost both of his legs and one of his fingers. listen to what he said. >> i have empathy of the stress that's in people's personal lyes as a result of this election. but that doesn't mean there's any real comparison to service members that have been targeted by sneers, that have been blown up, that have had to take the lives of their enemies, that have had their uniforms stained by the blood of their friends or have had to bury friends year after year after year or have been on deployments year after year after year. there's not a comparison between the two. steve: final thoughts, michael.
>> well, i've been fortunate enough to be volunteer at fisher house that cares for wounded warriors. no one's there because of an election, no one is there because of political opinion. they're there to help the harm that has been done to our country. i rather be there than wait for the cry babies to go home and wait for their participation trophy. steve: yeah, i don't remember to this extent. >> i've never seen anything like it. maybe generation cupcake -- brian: you can understand with al gore that was hung up weeks afterwards this was pretty clear. thanks, mike. >> thank you. brian: meanwhile we're waiting on the president of the united states to visit the museum of national american history. steve: that's right. these are some of the images he is in attendance with tim scott, dr. ben carson,al vitae king, more pictures coming up ♪ heigh ho ♪ heigh ho
