[cheers] [chanting] trump, trump, trump ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ ♪ american man ♪ we're an american man ♪ we're coming to your town steve: i love that song. live from studio f, it is "fox & friends," it's post game show to a couple of special elections that they held in south korea and georgia and this morning if you're waking up to find out
who won, the answer is the republican. ainsley: two big victories for the republican party. brian: if you think about it, my notes from yesterday say congratulations to democrats come out and would be conservative district because i wentz to bed early. get ahead of the game. it turns out to the people of georgia have spoken. not only did handle win. handle won handily. more than donald trump won that same district more than five months ago. apes ains put my i voted sticker something my opponent can't do. he didn't live in the district. steve: karen handle 53% to john as solve -- ossoff.
he lost ground. brian brian can i say the polls, the polls just have to look at themselves in the mirror. they took their face out of the mirror for a second, did polls for. this and all but one poll had ossoff winning or ahead this entire time and winning by about three or four points. steve: the polling outfit'' got it absolutely right. ainsley: polls were showing democrats were winning and hillary clinton was going to win and that didn't happen. steve: that's kind of like what donald trump had said. don't believe the polls. karen heandle didn't. she was on our poll yesterday. she said she felt she was going to win. that was in the morning. >> after she won, she said. this. >> so thanks to the president of the united states of america.
[cheers] [chanting trump, trump, trump] but let's not forget our equally great vice president, mike pence. [cheers and applause] brian: she went on to say she cannot forget someone she got very close to recently steve scalise and how important it's been. he called her. he nicknamed me the terminator and she appreciates that. it's so interesting that at least one professor from all ivy league schools donated to her. you have. steve: shocking'''. brian: jane upon darks chelsea handler, rosie o'donnell, samuel l. jackson all donated to him who ran as a republican, everything that they are against. all the people that don't want to set their parties and hang out with us. all those people put the money into this guy and, again, celebrities find out and ivy leaguers find out that america has other
things on their mind. ainsley: $50 million. the most expensive house race ever. you would think if the democrats want to win they would at least put someone. it was pretty close, 503% to 47%. they would put someone on the ballot that lives in that district. that's a no-brainer. brian: within three miles. they had no ideas. the ideas he had no one believed. he weighs acting like a moderate/conservative. i have know what donald trump is doing. here is what we are doing as opposed to russia, collusion, you don't want donald trump and people like him. america is not buying it. steve: there is a simple reason why he wound up on the primary ballot. that was because he challenged tom price in 2016. he lost significantly. only spent $1,000 to do it but nonetheless, he wound up on the ballot against her. and then, of course, she won. president trump, who sent out a number of tweets before the election to go vote and vote for her tweeted this last night. ains ansz he said
congratulations to karen handle on big one in georgia 6. fantastic job. we are all very proud of you. steve: another one. special elections are over and those who want to make america great again are 5-0. all the fake news, all the money spent, zero. brian: donald trump jr. with the biting edge and cutting wit congratulations dems that's the most expensive participation medal ever awarded since november. congratulations. a lot of money and attention. they put everything on the line. they wanted to send a message to donald trump. their message is you lose again. you have got to come up with a mission statement. a reason to get elected, running against donald trump because he definitely has a mission. he definitely will bring america direction. barack obama definitely had a mission. he definitely had a direction. the democrats don't. steve: you know what? the democrats are waking up this morning and scratching their head, we intelligent
all that money how could we possibly have lost? you look at it and think about where all the money went, they could have been real smart they could have funded five or six other house races. the democrats have to be smarter where they spend the money, where they have a chance to win rather than where they want to win. they wanted the symbolic hey we beat donald trump, beat that he is toast. except donald trump as he tweeted 5-0. tucker carlson last night. go ahead. ainsley: he talked about why the democrats keep losing. they really need to listen to republicans. lynch to what tucker said last night. >> democrats still literally have no idea why they keep losing elections. if they did, they would have run a real candidate with a real job who understands the constituents he is attempting to represent. instead, democrats put up a 30-year-old semiemployed documentary film maker who can't even vote for himself because he doesn't live in the district. he has a ton of trendy rich people positions on every topic. the abortion people love
him. is he gravely concerned about climate and childhood obesity and the availability of organic kale. he thinks illegal aliens are noble. he went to the london school of economics. super fit and way smarter than you are. could go on and on. seen it before. that's the point the voters have senile it before too. outside of brooklyn and l.a., they are not that into it that's why the democrats keep losing. why is so hard for the left to find voters actually care about. brian: see where the chipsz fall and at least you went down being yourself. look at the big picture. guys like larry sabato says don't get caught up in special election no matter which way they go. prureks deciding to redire or not retire because the house is trending democratic. talk about republicans in the senate saying should i get behind this healthcare bill because it's controversial or donald trump because he could be hurting the party all those answers are he is not hurting the party,
healthcare is okay. the american people haven't changed their minds, anna palmer from politico on the big picture. >> what it does show for democrats is they have a lot to be nervous about. this was a race where they had all of the money in the world. all the energy and enthusiasm. they came very close in the primary but they were not able to deliver. 0-4 means they will have a very tough time in the midterm election. steve: absolutely. we mentioned this yesterday. had the democrats won, the headlines on every channel would have been the democrats won. and they would have been talking about it all day. instead the republicans won and if you click around i have a feeling they will probably be talking about russian collusion later today. and, in fact, when you look at the way the democrats in congress were talking about it, they tried to hedge donors' expectations while early polls had showed the democrat was actually leading, they were saying, you know what, we don't really expect to win. we are trying to make it competitive that's what they were saying in the hours leading up to it.
ainsley: i was curious who was going to win. ' if the voters were still in favor of president trump. it looks like they are and in favor of that agenda. the democrats, she worked for politico, very left leaning newspaper or online publication. and so for her to say that, for the democrats to start realizing maybe we need to read the republican playbook and find out what republicans are or what middle america really wants. it's not about russia, russia, rawcial. but democrats saying that last week. it's not about russia, russia, russia. people want to talk about jobs, they want to talk about healthcare. steve: getting stuff done. brian: think about that, too. she is there to analyze. can't do anything else but blame the weather or rachel maddow for why they lost. brian: '' kellyanne conway had probably the most interesting tweet. she wrote' ossoff after the victory.
she was palms show this is very close. turns out it went to the republican by five. steve: she also we did thed out hey karen handle thanks for standing strong running on issues and being a grown up and living in the district. welcome to congress. ainsley: brian brought this one up earlier. donald trump jr. said congratulations, dems, that's the most expensive participation medal ever since november,. brian: while we were doing this the president and republican party looking at healthcare. like it or not, they are knee deep. they are talking about tax reform. like it or not knee deep. tack compling enemy north korea. like it or not they are taking a position. president and republicans are governing. the democrats need to get on board. >> don't you love social media sarcasm? '. steve: no kidding.

yesterday while i greatly appreciate the efforts of president xi in china to help with north korea it has not worked out. at least i know china tried. really? so what options does china have. texas republican congressman of course on home land security committee and former cia officer. the president says hey, china, you tried to talk -- you are the number one friend and really friend of north korea, it didn't work. our guy is dead. three others are still held hostage. i find that tweet endlessly intriguing what do you read from that? >> i read from that that the president is looking at unilateral options in north korea which are limited. also, 90% of north korea's economy comes through china. the chinese could do more. they talked about how they stopped purchasing coal from north korea. well, the money -- they had already exchanged money for a bunch ofcology for the rest of the year. are they going to continue that? the chinese allow north korean
companies to use arcane business rules in china to operate in china. we have economic tools to put pressure on the chinese in order to get them to move in north korea. brian: congressman, i don't think he took the foot off the gas in saying that i think he is tweaking them in saying that not being flagrant in displeasure. my feeling is i'm not going to embarrass you publicly, but i understand you are not doing everything you can do. i might have to take things into my own hands oh like the 57 tomahawks i sent while you were at mar-a-lago. he also sent a bombner a show force against kim jong un's north korea right after the death of otto did it right around the dmz. what else can he do next time they have a rocket launch? >> shoot it down. if the north koreans test anything, i think we destroy it before it goes down. i think we have got to show them that we have the resolve and that we have the capability to do this. and we also got to make sure
the new south korean regime is helping here. you know, the new south korean president wants to engage with north korea, and if come jong un wants to show is he serious, then releasing the three americans still in captivity is -- would be good start. brian: i believe, congressman, you know better than most because you are cia and lawmaker. we have to send a message that will not stand. if we allow otto to die without any retribution. what about the rest? what about the next? >> if there is no consequences to negative behavior, then that negative behavior will continue. and what happened to otto, i can only imagine what the family is going through and what they will be going to through losing, you know a child in the prime of their life. brian: we have got to do it even for him and for the others. congressman will hurd, thanks so much. >> thank you. brian: look for democrats to be on board.

>> this is a disappointing night for democrats, obviously. and i don't necessarily know that this was the right spending of resources in that it was necessarily the right candidate to put up. that said, i don't know that this loss can necessarily be called a victory for donald trump. you know, karen handel specifically distanced herself from donald trump on the campaign trail. she rarely mentioned his name. she talked about her independence from the white house and removing herself from the status quo. so that was sort in contrast to the other republicans she was running against. the fact shoe that she was the republican who won, that indicates progress. ainsley: you said you were bummed this morning when you woke up. >> i was. i was bummed but not necessarily surprised. tom price won this seat by 23 points. ainsley: newt gingrich before him. >> this has been a republican strong hold for 40 years and the fact that an unexperienced young candidate lost by only 3 pints that's progress to me. that's not the result i was hoping for but that's
progress. ainsley: do you agree with her. >> i agree it was the wrong race. any of these special elections were wrong for the democrats to put emphasis on this was bellwether. these were empty seats and no incumbent. this is the one that meant something, that's a mistake. south korea republican also won last night much closer. i think that man won by maybe a few hundred votes. bottom line is though this is a line of some level of desperation. i think the win was 6 points. the cheers at her party at the end was mostly for donald trump when he came to the support that she had and his support of her as well. and of course, just the general statement. now, the republicans have won all the special elections. and when 2018 comes around, there will be incumbents involved. the reason they lost is the reason why hillary lost. it's the reason why they lost the 1,000 seats during obama's term is they are disconnected from the nature of what's happening in the country. according to the book "shattered" hillary clinton
when she realized said to her aides i don't understand what's happening in the country. and that's the problem. and i think part of it, forgive me, not all democrats, but their leadership and these candidates whether it's obama and hillary in their heart don't like the american people, believe they know better, and donald trump's appeal has been that he likes us, he understands the nature of what's occurring, whether it's the rust belt or the coast or across the country and he really wants to help make the difference. we gave them 8 years. it did not work obviously. now the american people want something else. the democrats have got to recognize that and act on it. ainsley: julie, do you agree with her on that. >> absolutely not. ainsley: talk about the rhetoric and democrats -- got bernie sanders and elizabeth warren also focused on rhetoric collusion and obstruction and jared's finances but then have you middle america saying hey, look at georgia. i know it was close. demographics have changed in that area. more democrats are moving
south into the georgia. you have anna palmer from politic so he saying if the democrats don't learn from this they are going to lose. they are going to lose again. don't you think the democrats need to get on board and paying attention what the american people want is jobs and security. >> i think to say that the democrats aren't paying attention to what the american people want is false. i think that donald trump tapped into something very specific, a very specific, you know, desire for a change from the status quo. to say the democrats don't like the american people that is a ridiculous statement to me. they love the american part-time. they are trying to create policies good for the american people. the american healthcare act that is potentially going to be passed in the senate is an indication that the republicans do not care about low income people and they want to give tax cuts to millionaires. ainsley: last word. >> black swan the shooting last week people want to ignore there was an attempted assassination of 22 g.o.p.ers. americans are seeing that as
harbinger of the attitude of the left. that is making them even more concerned. that's where bernie and elizabeth warren come in. that rhetoric has to change at first really, one of the first things. ainsley: all right, tammy, julie, thank you for being with us. >> thank you. ainsley: coming up, he tried to blow up innocent people in two states. his lawyers say he is not a terrorist. you are going to hear their argument coming up next. janice dean says she is canadian. is she really? we just did her d.n.a. test. we will reveal the results to her coming up. ♪ i can't wait ♪ how do you like me now? ♪ how do you like me now ♪ how do you like me now ♪ (burke) at farmers, we've seen almost everything, so we know how to cover almost anything. even a coupe soup.

before the war ended at 39 years old. not only that it says right there on the document. and this is actually going -- it says that he was tall, slender, had gray eyes and blonde hair. just like you. >> well, with a little help. >> well, they didn't have that back then. that's amazing. draft registration document. then you also, in your d.n.a. we found out a little bit about your irish heritage on your mother's side which you knew about. we were able to that i can that further back. my heritage researchers found that this is on your dad's side as well. michael o'shaughnessy. he and his wife came over from ireland in 115. they got married. this is from the 1920 census. and it shows that they this three children in five years. so deal i can' delia. brian: is that a record.

steve: america has just discovered whatever surveillance former national security advisor susan rice requested on the trump administration, incoming administration is going to be locked up for five years in former president obama's presidential library. that's all according to a letter sent to judicial watch. joining us with more is the president of judicial watch tom fitton. tom, good morning to you. >> good morning. how are you? steve: what were you trying to find from these documents. >> our investigators asked national security council for records about susan rice's unmasking of the trump team, about the dnc hack, about what they were doing with this russia collusion investigation, if that's what you want to call it. and they gave us a letter back saying they sent all those records to the national security counsel did to the obama presidential library and, which means that under the at least the freedom of information act we won't be
even able to ask for these records until five years after president obama has left office. steve: unbelievable. it sounds like you're just making that up. sounds like something out of a movie, but that's the way things work unless the president himself, if he were to ask for those documents, they would give them right over, right? >> yeah. they still are federal records. they are under the control of the national archives and can he get them. if he needs them, the president to conduct his official duties, he can get them. subpoenas can be issued by congress to get them. a special counsel muriel, if he decides to actually investigate real crimes like the unmasking, the illicit surveillance. the leaking, he could get them if he issued subpoenas. so, there are options to get these records, and they need to be taken because, you know, there could be elements of the records in the other agencies but these are key white house records about what the white house was up to and that seems to me is important as anything
else e. steve: silly me, i would have thought that because the national security council was kind of part of the white house, those things would stay right there in that building forever in the white house. but apparently somebody wanted to get rid of them and put them over in barack obama's presidential library, right? >> you know, you have to wonder, steve, when it happened. did it happen during the trump administration? were they told about it? was it this a bureaucratic shell game? i understanding when you -- white house records do get are archived. but presumably folks are aware of what's happening and someone should have been alerted that, look, these key documents that everyone is concerned about are go to go over to the archives. you want to take a look at them? should we keep copies here so we have them? steve: it is a curious situation. let's see what happens next. if robert mueller wants them or the president himself wants to make them public. >> the white house get them as quickly as possible and don't rely on robert mueller. that's for sure. steve: let's hope somebody

>> i went to bed in a good mood and woke um in a good mood. i never get tired of winning. brian: polls were wrong again. too close to call. she wasn't winning in any poll. she wins handily. they called this thing the second et poll closed. >> has to be accountability somewhere in the media, continuing to have a narrative. the race is going to lose. donald trump can't win. karen handel can't win because the american people are smart. what they know is washington has been broken. donald trump is here to fix it. and he needs help to get that done and that's what karen handle was sent to washington for. the democrats spent $22 million on this race alone. $22 million. they had a flawed candidate. they have have a terrible message. they want to make this all about donald trump. great. it's about donald trump and he is winning. steve: sure. note to democrats, if you are going to put somebody up for a congressional district make sure they live in the district. did he not. >> that's right. steve: donald trump 28 hours before the election did some tweeting to support her. he has been tweeting this morning. 30 minutes ago, corey, he tweeted out democrats would do much better as a party if they
got together with the republicans on healthcare, tax cuts, security, obstruction doesn't work. so clearly, as mitch mcconnell unveils to the public his healthcare plan tomorrow, you would like to get some democrats on board. although is that really possible? >> look, i think there are some democrats in the u.s. senate who are up for re-election next year who want to work with the president. have you got 10 democrat incumbents sitting in states where donald trump carried their stated just last year who are going to have a very difficult re-election effort. it is important to have repeal and replace done. there are some democrats there who want to see this. i think of joe manchin in montana. senator. brian: wear. >> one of the dakotas. i'm sorry from west virginia. i have think the senator from montana might be there. there are opportunities to work that bipartisan fashion. the most important thing is to actually get things done for a change. brian: corey, do you know what i find fascinating is i think -- i will say that maybe i'm being too optimistic. people wanted to see that
donald trump was going to withstand any type of head winds through this whole problem with the election and things leading up to the election since then. maybe it's the russia thing, okay? so now that he stood through five special elections, now that we see healthcare moving forward, despite the controversy. tax reform moving forward despite the controversy. a cool, calm and collected approach to north korea, a belligerent dictator our number one enemy, now all of a sudden republicans going maybe it's going to be okay to follow this new guy we just met. maybe democrats are going to say maybe stand notice his way and saying is he unworthy is not going to work. which makes me think tomorrow and even starting today maybe things go back to somewhat normal when a president takes office. do you think that? >> look, it's a hyper partisan environment here in washington, unfortunately. the american people are very smart. and when they continue to send republicans to washington to help the president get his agenda done, it's a continuation of his promise to change. brian: so you don't think anything changes? >> the democrats are so
distraught, they are so rudderless. they have a terrible leadership. spent $22 million on an election that they could have potentially won if they had a good message, which they don't. instead of giving donald trump the credit because he went down and campaigned for karen, he tweeted for karen. instead of giving him the credit they want. they want to stop an agenda of putting motorcycle first. i don't understand it. america first is very simple. let's put us in charge for a change. ainsley: corey, the democrats we all knew when they won they were going to say this is a referendum on donald trump. if they lost, i was curious to find out what they were going to say. rachel maddow who is a democrat. she is on msnbc. she went on our sho her show ths because of the weather. the rain kept people home. >> only rains in georgia. that's the crazy part. brian: on democrats. ainsley: listen to this and we'll talk about it. >> let me ask you one last question on this. if there was a turn out effect from the bad weather today in the district, does that have any partisan implications that
you could foresee what was expected for same day election day voting here rather than the early vote? ainsley: we need to keep in mind you could vote earlier, too. they had early voting in the days before. >> that's right. and if you look at it, you know, he did not do a good job of getting the early vote numbers in which he needed to do in order to be successful. it only rained on democrats when they were in line down there. no republicans got wet. it's an excuse every single time. let's stop making excuses and realize that the democratic party has completely lost. they have no leadership. think have no message. they have no path forward. for five times now they tried to put a learn dumb on donald trump saying america didn't want him there. every single time he has proven them wrong. every single time he said we are going to keep putting america first. steve: i will tell you though, corey, because the republicans won last night in the two special elections. now this is going to come back to haunt the white house. because rather than them say donald trump is toast because of this referendum on him, instead, they are not going to
barely mention it and now they will go back to the russian thing and collusion and somebody is going to go to jail. and the rumors about a white house shakeup. all right. we have been hearing those for a very long time. in fact, the very latest is that the president's upcoming trip to iowa, to seat folks is just to get the spotlight off of him and the scandals, they say. >> well, look, the president was supposed to go to iowa a few weeks ago. they postponed it. is he going there today. that has been on the books for a long time. there is no white house shakeup coming. i can tell you this. i don't work in the building but i can tell you this. the president is very happy with the team that he has. dolls that mean they need more help? of course they do. sean spicer is doing multiple jobs. communications director, press secretary, h et cetera. he is looking to bring more people on board. there is no massive white house shakeup coming. it's not going to happen. the president is very happy. republicans continue to win. his agenda is moving forward. is he doing exactly what he pledged to do in the campaign,
which is to put america first. brian: right. i always find it interesting when a never trumper is forced to look at something controversial and realize there is no there there. david from today says flat out a republican that this is a huge victory for donald trump and david brooks of the "new york times" said this on sunday about possible collusion with russia. he is seeing what most other people are seeing. there is nothing there. listen to this. >> getting more uncomfortable with this whole ordeal thinking we are getting ahead of ourselves. i'm bothered by the lack of emerging evidence about the underlying crime that there was actually collusion or coordination white house. i have 967 problems with trump as president. but the russia collusion happens to be 547. and as we sort of surround him with this when i think there interest a lot of other -- brian: he is noticing there is nothing there what are you doing? this is amazing. david brooks is not a trump supporter. is he truly a trump hater.
someone as liberal as him from the failing "new york times" coming on and telling you that there is nothing there maybe, just maybe et people in washington should understand this. there is no collusion. there is no obstruction. there was no communication. it's time to move on from this and i go back and i question. now that the democrats have said there is no collusion. have you got the mainstream media with the failing "new york times" saying it you have got republicans saying it what is bob mueller doing? i don't even understand what his role is anymore. everyone has said there is nothing here. so this investigation should end immediately. brian: he hired another democratic attorney. steve: let's see what happens. corey, what happens with healthcare? >> the senate will get a healthcare bill done. go to conference and the president will fulfill his promise to repeal and replace obamacare. steve: that was easy. ainsley: ready for that one. steve: corey, thank you very much. ainsley: head over to jillian who has headlines for us. short and sweet got to love that. jillian: good morning to you as well.

this down what would it be today. >> the threat of legislation so say, look, either you solve this or when we come in nobody wins when when we come in. onerous and cost you money to do. this you have to effect their profits and bottom line. you know threat of legislation. presidential election in 1998 talking about regulating critical infrastructure. first one to hop on were the banks. no one want to be regulated by the government. have to get ahead of it. threat of legislation and get these guys to step up their game is probably the only lever they have that they can pull. don't bluff. follow through on it. steve: absolutely. morgan wright who is from my neck of the woods out in kansas. >> that's right. steve: morgan, thank you very much. straight ahead, democrats just keep attacking our president. >> he is true to form. true to his nature. and that is not how a democracy works.

power the republicans were going after clinton to get him impeached. brian: overplayed their hand. >> each side overplayed hand. forgot positive agenda. focus too much to try to make criminals out of the other side. lock them up. put them in jail. this focus on what crimes we can find against donald trump backfires against the democrats. democrats don't win by trying to make a criminal out of their president. steve: couple weeks ago you started so he see a couple members of congress talk about how the president should be impeached. moving towards articles of impeachment. the democrats did some poll testing and we don't know what they found out but they stopped talking about it. >> even david brooks who was certainly no supporter of donald trump has said in the "new york times" the other day enough is enough the american people don't want to see our time and energy spent on criminal investigations there are already investigations.
did the russians try to influence our elections look into that. should the president have the power in the future to fire fbi director? maybe not. congress can pass laws about that trying to turn what he did, which was constitutionally permissible, firing the director, maybe telling him not to conduct investigation. that's all authorized under the law today. congress wants to change, let them look forward but not look backward and create crime out of constitutionally protected act. ainsley: isn't it conflict of interest for mueller to be appointed and choose an attorney that was hillary's foundation attorney. >> there are so many conflicts of interests here. justice department trying to prosecuted a president for following a dictate of the justice department. the very person who appointed a special prosecutor wrote a memo saying comey should be fired and now we are going to prosecute you for firing comey. who do you think the first witness is going to be for donald trump? deputy director of the justice
department the man. that's already a conflict of interest. brian: professor, i get the sense it's turning point. election definitive result. they said donald trump is a failure doesn't belong. america will have a radio do. they had a radio do five separate times in republican districts. i get it there has been no change. do you sense that we are going to get back to let's see how bad or good the tax reform is, how bad or good the healthcare plan is what the president is going to do about north korea? do you sense in the democratic party that they will sense they have to turn the page? >> no. they are not doing it they are not doing it they are a divided party. right now the visible manifestation of the democratic party is bernie sanders, keith ellison, the party is moving lefter and lefter and lefter. and they are not going to get the centrist americans who they need to win in michigan, ohio, pennsylvania, if they want to turn this thing around. they need to have a positive
program that shows they are better. they will employ more people than the trump administration. focusing on whether trump committed obstruction of justice is getting them nowhere. steve: dr. allen dershowitz with cautionary tale for democrats. it's funny. just before we got started, he was telling me about a kid when he was at harvard teaching law, remember you told us that bill bennett when he was in your class was constantly falling asleep? >> no. he was always raising his head. bill bennett was one of my best students. steve: he joins us live right now. >> he is one of my best students. i'm so proud of him. my first year teaching i was so nervous. he walked into his class with his right hand up. he raised it the first day and took me on. i love students willing to take on their professors and bill bennett was willing to take on his professor. brian: even a football player? ainsley: bill, do you have any stories you want to share? >> yeah. allen actually whenever he
sees me says best conservative student. there weren't a ton of us. but i found out he says the same thing to ted cruz. >> it's a different generation. ted is a kid. you're my generation. brian: all right. bill, stay right there. allen, sadly we have to send the car for you. ainsley: allen we did have ted cruz on yesterday we were talking about you. so you have two best. o -- he was one of your best students. >> one of my best students. brian: closest i will get to ivy league education. ainsley: me too. steve: thank you.y brian: thanks professor. ready, go! hi, juice universe? one large rutabaga, with eggplant... done! that's not fair. glad i had a v8. the original way to fuel your day.
we send our kids out into the world, full of hope. and we don't want something like meningitis b getting in their way. meningococcal group b disease, or meningitis b, is real. bexsero is a vaccine to help prevent meningitis b in 10 to 25 year olds. even if meningitis b is uncommon, that's not a chance we're willing to take. meningitis b is different from the meningitis most teens were probably vaccinated against when younger. we're getting the word out against meningitis b. our teens are getting bexsero. bexsero should not be given if you had a severe allergic reaction after a previous dose. most common side effects are pain, redness or hardness at the injection site; muscle pain; fatigue; headache; nausea; and joint pain. bexsero may not protect all individuals. tell your healthcare professional if you're pregnant or if you have received any other meningitis b vaccines. ask your healthcare professional about the risks and benefits of bexsero and if vaccination with bexsero is right for your teen. moms, we can't wait.

handel beat jon ossoff 52% to 47%. in the state of south korea, ralph norton beat archie by a score of 51 to 48. brian: let's bring in former secretary of education deep thinker. he worked during the reagan administration as a drug czar for president h.w. bush fox news contributor bill bennett. bill, what changes today? >> we will see if there are any changes in the democratic party. too close to call becomes six points. i don't see it we were talking there on break, brian. there is no straight jacket like ideological straight jacket. and they are in one. look hot leaders of their party are look who commands the crowds. bernie sanders, elizabeth warren. they are talking about camella harris from california. now we hear eric holder. these are people of the left if they continue to go to the left and believe that's where the country is they miss the
country. you mentioned joe manchin. he is much closer to where the senator of the country is and the democrat should take note of that i don't think they will because they have moved so far left and they seem committed to it. so i'm not sure this is a lesson they can learn. saints augusta has a phrase called invincible ignorance. this may be a case of invincible ignorance. can't be penetrated we will see. ainsley: you mentioned bernie sanders and elizabeth warren and collusion and cruption and this and that that is not what america wants we are being told by the republican and by middle america and according to these polls. when you talk about these examples from the democrats. i think negativity. i just think hate and and vitriol and rhetoric. we have joe manchin on our show so positive and happy. what do the democrats need. if they don't have joe manchin, do they need new faces and something to excite that base again? >> yeah, they need to check the bench. they need to check the
a.a.a.s, the double as and see who can come in. but, yeah. look. what is the democrat agenda, ainsley in the democrat agenda is fight trump, take trump down. ainsley: doesn't that get old? it's so negative. >> a, it's old, b, it's negative which doesn't win hearts and finds of america, and c it's not an greand what are they poo posing. can you say we have problems your healthcare and other things. at least we are proposing things. what are they proposing other than take down trump. steve: sure. that's why the president is going to go out to iowa later on today, a trip he had scheduled earlier. is he going to be pushing agribusiness and things like that. of course people are going to be talking about healthcare. sounds like mitch mcconnell is going to unveil his plan tomorrow and chew on it for a week before they go ahead and try to pass something in the senate before the fourth of july. number one thing, bill i fear and i'm sure you do too from the folks.
donald trump is the president. why don't they give him a chance? whether it's the media or obstructionist in congress. give him a chance to get something done. >> because they hate him they are not going to give him that chance. the challenge for us is to get something done. we have to do this despite this opposition. despite the fact that they want to do everything in their power to are stop. we got to get some stuff done. i take pleasure in that result last night in georgia and in south korea i think we have six month or 8 months and then we have to have points on the board and legislative accomplishments or some of the faithful will begin to lose heart. i think that time is extended by this negativity of the democrats, the shooting, the other things, people don't want any part of that. i think that has helped republicans because they are not the party that engageness that kind of vitriol. we have got to get some stuff done. positive.
if negative is bad for the country as ainsley was saying. positive is great, positive agenda and achieving it is important for the republicans. brian: what happens is a lot of the other net work a lot of the talk shows getting ratings beating on trump. trump is a fighter. he multiplies that by going at them and have another day. the fact he has held fire on russia. talked about tax reform, north korea. met with the ukrainian president flooded him with praise yesterday. who had mike bloomberg on another network saying he has probably 55% chance of getting reelected and he had a great message and hillary had no message. it's stopping the flood gates. it's making people look at tax reform. healthcare, his foreign policy and he is happy looking at his report card. >> you are absolutely right. he does seem -- there is certain undaunted quality to him, isn't there? i have politicsed feelings about this stepping into the fight all the time and stepping out. you know, the story of the
irishman who walks down the street and sees a fight going on. he says is this a private fight or can anybody get in? that's sort of donald. hey, wait a minute, there is a fight going on. i want in on this fight. my former professor dershowitz is right. he should stay out of these for his own well being. going to iowa. let me just comment. remember how strong rural america was to his election. it's very, very important and think about how foreign rural america is from the precincts that sent all the money to jon ossoff. brian: thinking about the tech week. that's party of it bringing technology to the rural community. this is part of -- everybody he met with didn't vote for him but still showing up because it's about the country. bill bennett thanks so much. ainsley: thank you, bill. >> >> thanks guys as always. ainsley: jillian is standing over there. jillian: i like when i get to come downstairs. good morning to you and good

that's the problem here. they have a bill of $130 billion that they have got to pay out in the future and they don't have the money. they are in the hole. brian: lottery is a gimmick to raise more money for states. >> probably the worst piece of publicity for the lottery winner won't get their money on time if they don't get money. that's the worst pr you can imagine. brian: look at the surrounding states. what about indiana and ohio? how come they can work it out and they can't. >> illinois' problem is that if you go back a few years. maybe to the days of rob blagojevich, if you remember him as the governor of illinois, they made promises to government workers for future payments which they don't have to make. okay. the government at the time, he is now in prison or just being released, whatever. that he made promises to deliver this pension money in the future. he could not fulfill that promise. steve: sure. >> now the bill is due and they don't have the money. steve: here's the deal. the deal is the deal. he made the deal with the
state employee he is. the government is obligated. now they have just got to figure out going forward where the will is to change the way illinois does business. >> last night the governor of illinois decided, okay, i will impose higher taxes. he basically gave in to the democrats who run the legislature. he gave. in he said i will raise taxes. that's not going to get them out of the hole. brian: get people out of state. go to the another state and avoid doing that. ainsley: buy lottery tickets as well. >> population of illinois has gone down. lost population each of the last three years. brian: michael jordan left. >> that exodus is likely to increase. illinois is insolvent. as i said. they cannot declare bankruptcy. the stat states can't do that ty are insolvent. they will raise taxes that will not solve the problem. you can expect a further exodus of people out of illinois. period. ainsley: all right. stuart varney, thank you. watch your show today. brian: tough anyway never reason to leave. steve: note to i will noif

to this problem is evidence-based prevention in schools. we need to educate parents, teachers and students. one out of five. 20% of kids are predisposed to addictive qualities. brian: people down on that working look at drunk driving. if you talk to a kid your age. you wouldn't even think about 99% wouldn't each think about getting behind the wheel having a drink. it doesn't even happen. >> this is my generation. i know in your generation it was different. but, why did we solve that problem? it was through education. we need to stop thinking that we need to reinvent the wheel. education is the key solution to this scourge. brian: lastly people saying how are we going to afford this? it's very expensive i don't have great insurance. >> it's expensive if we do not do anything. look at the money wasted in lack of productivity. medicaid expansion and people having to check into emergency rooms and community chaos and distortion. too expensive not to act. brian: great topic. great start on your career. josh, nassau county city legislature. thank you for your time. >> thank you very much.

everybody knows that russia is just deep steak dinner. it absolutely means nothing to anyone with a life. that's what it is, and it's not even good. brian: i never know. do you eat or watch? you do both, and you don't know. ainsley: in your office? brian: not enough. >> it's not even -- what i mean is it's not even good theater. it's not like broadway level. it's, like, some lameo pilot that they're invested in, and they won't give up on. ainsley: how about the guy who doesn't even live in the district? >> and, again, a candidate who is almost like a parody, who has done nothing but claims to be a documentary maker. brian: he sold the cadence of president obama. like he was doing an imitation. >> right. it's theater all the way down. steve: big election yesterday was supposed to be a
referendum on donald trump and if the democrat won, it was going to be the biggest story in the world because he didn't. not so much today. but the president got up this morning, and he's feeling a little bipartisan. take a look at this tweet that he sent out one hour ago. democrats would do much better as a party if they got together with republicans on health care, tax cuts, security, obstruction. simply doesn't work. which is a potent message because there are a lot of people out there who are going. okay. they've thrown everything at him instead of the kitchen sink. let him do his job. >> yeah. and really what he's getting at there is he's not an idea logical president. he's not really a party president. brian: which has republicans nervous. >> which is why republicans are suspicious of him and if i say soph cal conservatives. he's a nonparty guy, a nonidea logical guy. he could have governed with the support not only of republicans, but of sane democrats. and instead, essentially i think snobbish social reasons because of the fact he's a
real estate guy and whatever. so he doesn't appeal to millennial documentary makers, whatever the hell that means, you know? but for snob reasons, they're overinvested in just destroying him. and they could actually work with him on a number of things. steve: who are the same democrats you're talking about? >> well, it's a very short list. but you talked about. west virginia states but essentially not -- but the official national democrat party, the less relevant topic is to anybody's lives the more they're invested in it, which is why transgender bathrooms and all of these kinds of -- the boutique liberal issues loom large for them. but actual things that make a difference to lives of millions of people, they're irrelevant to, and they have nothing to say about it. brian: well, let's look right now. and i have been unable to get by any company on this. i think it is a new day today. i think that the democrats aren't dumb.
they want to do what makes them successful. they've had five opportunities to pull off a scott brown. they have been unable to do it. scott brown taking ted kennedy's seat is a unbelievable story. that we get small scott brown stories going. so why wouldn't they say deal me in? why wouldn't they tell leadership you led me into the lagoon. i'm going to do something different. >> because somewhere two doors down from barbra streisand some democrat is saying next time's the charm. we just have to get a couple more celebrities. they did everything last night they did in november. and the defining moment for me in november was when cher walked into the center and realized that all the other celebrities had left the room and the sense of loserrism was hanging around cher's neck, she turned around and walked out. six months later, they're
doing all the same celebrity media poll mistakes. brian: smells like english leather, which, by the way, is the same -- ainsley: terrible cologne. brian: not good. steve: what's interesting in the last 48 hours, though, is democrats were trying to downplay the fact that he was probably going to lose. in fact, they were telling their big donors we didn't really expect to win. essentially what we were trying to do is just be competitive. but in the meantime, the poll is to go further to the left. steve: yeah, and say all we need to do is spend two-thirds of a billion in this particular congressional seat next time. i mean, that's crazy. brian: so i want to give you a list of celebrities who weighed in financially. rosie o'donnell, chelsea handler, jane fonda, and samuel l jackson actually cut a promo for him, a supporting message. and, again, the people of georgia have their own pride. they don't want california money. and celebrities don't want --
we don't really take our cues from celebrities on how to live our lives. >> no, and the idea that samuel l jackson should determine your politics is as stupid as chuck schumer in a action movie. that's even more stupid because i would like to see. if they want to put chuck schumer in "fast and furious" 9, i would go and see that. brian: stops action. that's what he does. ainsley: why do they care so much about this election in georgia? a state that they probably don't know much about? >> because i think that's kind of a necessary validation for them. and actually, you know, it's killing their business. what fascinates me is if you look at these late night comedy shows now, people don't laugh. they applaud the joke. laugh is inventory thing. if you say something about your great lie smells like english leather, i laugh
involuntary, but on these late night shows, they applaud because there's no comedy. they're killing their own business. brian: stephen colbert who rocketed his antitrump to number one is now number three because president trump isn't giving anymore. he's beginning to move on. what is sexy about health care, tax reform, and taking on north korea? >> or you say they fired comey, and everyone in the audience applauds because they don't know what line they're supposed to be -- this is pathetic. why don't you actually get back into show business? that's what these guys should be doing. brian: we came up in show business. those are the days. brian: you do have an album, though, mark steyn. >> yes, i do i'm getting back into show business. brian: absolutely. we should make this more of a musical show.
ainsley: what do you think's going to happen? you think donald trump -- because we heard -- who was it? bill bennett saying we need to let the president do what he's going to do, we need to follow him and be behind him. but he said there's going to be a time where all right. we have to have the wall. we have to have tax reform. we have to have obamacare repeal and replace. how much time do you give the president on that? >> well, i would like to see some action on the wall pretty immediately because i think that's a signature issue. and i think he also needs to get more aggressive about telling these -- this investigation to put up or shut up. there is no, there there. there is no -- brian: let his legal team do that. >> yeah. it's going to be like the fbi investigation, comey success where he puts martha stuart in jail for lying where there's no underlying crime. that's what's going to happen here. some assistant deputy under some assistant deputy will misremember something and bob
muller will say we're going to send you to jail for three months and everyone will go aha. the longer this rubbish goes on. but it is nonsense, and it discredits this republic, this pathetic, stupid investigation for months on end. brian: and the story calling for violence and what we're seeing now with the shooting one week ago today. >> right. brian: don't you think there's more at stake than who wins at an election? >> oh, absolutely. and i think the democrats using these guys as their military wing i think is very dangerous because you don't discredit your political opponent if you keep getting more and more violent. you discredit the very possibility of civic representative government, and you make -- and people will turn to more strong man authoritarian types if they think there's actually violence loose on the streets. they're playing a really dangerous game getting into bed with these thugs. and the connection between the smart comedians and the guys
smashing up everything and rioting, it's only separation. they should be slapping these guys down too. brian: all right. mark steyn, always good to see you. ainsley: thank you.

>> good morning welcome back to fox and friends. we start right now with fox news alert. prince fill ep heads to the hospital tonight. the 96-year-old taken there as a precautionary measure. buckingham palace says he is in good condition. he will retire from public events later this year. and now to some extreme weather, the first full day of summer and the gulf coast is
bracing for a monster tropical storm. it is expect iting to bring a foot of rain. alabama is already under a state of emergency. and how about this? a plane flying near the storm rocked with severe turbulence hurting at least ten people. firefighters rushing to meet the united flight from panama as soon as it touched down safely in houston. it's unclear how this people are hurt. brian: the president will head to the heartland to discuss technology in rural america. ainsley: going to speak about the importance of internet connectivity and reaffirm his administration's commitment to agriculture. steve: leeland is live at the white house with more on the trip to iowa. good morning to you, leeland. >> hey, good morning to you guys. we can expect the president not only to talk about how to grow more corn but also where to sell. a lot of discussion among farmers in iowa about exactly
what the president's trade policies will mean for their ability to access global markets. also attend an agricultural technology program at a community college talking about the next generation of farmers industry that is under huge change both under the technological part and then also the farming part itself. he heads to a campaign rally a little bit later in a state that has turned deep red, talked to a conservative radio talk show host in iowa over the weekend. he said the big issue there is health care. they have just one insurer left on the obamacare exchanges there, and that insurer is raising rates 43%. the local paper just ahead of the president's visit saying more than 70,000 iowaians losing health insurance through the affordable care act is and partisan politics.
you promised a terrific obamacare replacement, but we haven't seen anything resembling a terrific plan. the white house talking a lot about health care as the senate takes up the bill either this week or possibly next. big part of the president's visit is also a send off for the iowa governor who's now going to go be the president ambassador to china. and a bit of reunion to the president and the governor's son who engineered much of the president's victory in iowa running his campaign there, guys. steve: that's a good point there. thank you. ainsley: tucker, first day of summer. brian: more on that later. 19 minutes now after the hour, coming up no gender, no problem. where you can now get a license to drive without one. steve: without a gender. interesting. and mike rowe is putting america to work. he's going to join us live to explain. good morning, mike, you're live next on fox and friends. ainsley: hello
usaa gives me the peace of mind and the security just like the marines did. the process through usaa is so effortless, that you feel like you're a part of the family. i love that i can pass the membership to my children. we're the williams family, and we're usaa members for life. sargento balancede know gobreaks are a trio,threes. a triad, a trilogy of goodness. natural cheese, dried fruit, and nuts. three wholesome ingredients that live as one. savory, salty, sweet, a triangle, perfectly balanced.
steve: we have got some quick wednesday morning headlines for you right now. no in-state tuition for dreamers in the state of arizona. the state court of appeals ruling dreamers are not entitled to it. but the court ruled the daca program only protects immigrants from being deported. overturning a 2015 ruling saying dreamers qualify for state benefits. and as early as next week, you won't need a gender to apply for a washington, d.c. driver's license. following in oregon's footsteps and will soon include a not specified option on department of motor vehicle application. that means instead of an m or
a f on a state-issued id, there could be an x. all right. ainsley: well, supposed to be a referendum on the president, another loss in georgia. once again american people saying they care about safety and jobs. steve: someone knowing about both of these is mike rowe, one of the world's most popular podcast, joins us right now from louisville, connecticut. good morning. >> hey, everybody. steve: good to have you. i know you were listening to the georgia this is the most important election in the world. well, the republican won. that narrative is gone. what did it say to people picking karen? >> a little bit beyond my pay grade but if i were to guess in my little slice of the
world the way i look at all of this is the country is divided, obviously, in a lot of different ways. but the big way from my perspective is the group of people who were convinced that opportunity is alive and well and the group of people who are convinced that opportunity is dead. and i think that at base, that's the conversation we're having. certainly through my foundation and what i look at, i see again and again over and over this notion that opportunity is dead being challenged. and to the extend that that impacted georgia, i can't really say. but it's what i see day after day after day. people are voting for the idea that it's not quite dead yet. it's more of an optimistic notion, and it's certainly something that i relate with. steve: i'm curious to hear your opinion about hollywood weighing in on this. they gave so much money for this guy to win in the state of georgia. you represent so many people in the midwest where steve might be from or middle america. steve: oh, i am. ainsley: and where i'm from in south carolina.
but i'm curious to find out what's your opinion? how did they know in hollywood what's best for the state of georgia? >> i don't know. but i'll tell you this, ainsley. honestly, i grew up outside of dc. my office is in santa monica, california, and i live in san francisco. ainsley: i would have not have expected that. >> right. you know? but, look, i think fundamentally this idea of them and us is specious. i don't know why the people in hollywood would work so hard to affect -- i mean, i know why. but i don't think it's useful for the average american to look at hollywood as this specific place that's always thinking in this specific way. i honestly don't know which is why, again, when it comes down to the macro economic situations or the geotalking points, i'm not your guy. but if it's a microconversation, mild pun
intended, i still think there's an opportunity through work, attitude, and a skilled trade to move the needle. steve: exactly. and that's the same thing that president and his team have been pushing with the apprentice program and things like that. you have been there since the get go on, and you've been talking to the administration. does it seem they're taking some of your ideas and going, hey, that could actually work. >> well, to be clear, i don't think there's any such thing as an original idea in this space. it's part ratio, part work ethic. but the business around this skills gap is very interesting. and to be clear, i'm not in direct talks with the white house, but we have -- we have exchanged ideas. and, to me, the biggest thing to focus on right now is not the creation of jobs, and not the business of bringing jobs back, both of which are very important, it's the fact that 6 million jobs currently exist.
they're here right now. 75% of them do not require a four-year college degree. steve: just skill. >> so we have to have a >> .ersation about training. yes, just skill. ainsley: i know you're partnering with charles cook foundation. what are you doing? >> well, for years, we've been working together on a variety of things. right now in louisville, once again the greatest kept secret is being held. the national convention and competition for skills, usa. 400,000 kids are in this organization. most people don't know about them. and every year my foundation and charles try to bring more and more kids here who have won their regional competitions. i'm talking about competitions in things like welding and steam fitting and carpentry. so these kids are competing here, it's a very big deal and once a year we try to come together and shine a light on this because honestly,
somebody had to pick slack, and it wasn't the feds. it was private business and these kids, and it's a fabulous story, and i'm thrilled you guys are talking about it right now. steve: how do people find out more information about it? >> simple thing is to go online and find out how skills operate in your zip code. it's not a uniform thing across the country. but there are 400,000 kids in it right now. so it's huge. but to my point, you put 100 people in a room and say who has heard of the boy scouts, everybody's hand goes up. you say who has heard of skills usa? five hands hands go up. if we focus on this organization, i'm telling you, it's our best hope of closing the skills gap short-term. ainsley: i was a girl scout. no one ever approached me and said do you want to become a welder? i would have loved that skill. steve: i was a boy scout, and i learned how to weld in the
future farmers of america. >> well, now there's a welding merit badge. steve: times have changed. mike rowe, thank you for joining us today from louisville, kentucky. >> thank you. ainsley: it was supposed to be a referendum on president trump. that's what we thought we were going to hear a lot this morning. but that did not happen in the state of georgia. sarah huckabee sanders is going to join us from the white house, next. steve: and what is happening in this studio? well, we're going to talk to the senator about that awkward hug when he joins us next live from studio f. ainsley: hug me
we send our kids out into the world, full of hope. and we don't want something like meningitis b getting in their way. meningococcal group b disease, or meningitis b, is real. bexsero is a vaccine to help prevent meningitis b in 10 to 25 year olds. even if meningitis b is uncommon, that's not a chance we're willing to take. meningitis b is different from the meningitis most teens were probably vaccinated against when younger. we're getting the word out against meningitis b. our teens are getting bexsero. bexsero should not be given if you had a severe allergic reaction after a previous dose.
most common side effects are pain, redness or hardness at the injection site; muscle pain; fatigue; headache; nausea; and joint pain. bexsero may not protect all individuals. tell your healthcare professional if you're pregnant or if you have received any other meningitis b vaccines. ask your healthcare professional about the risks and benefits of bexsero and if vaccination with bexsero is right for your teen. moms, we can't wait. it's ok that everybody ignoit's fine.n i drive. because i get a safe driving bonus check every six months i'm accident free. because i don't use my cellphone when i'm driving. even though my family does, and leaves me all alone. here's something else... i don't share it with mom. i don't. right, mom? i have a brand new putter you don't even know about! it's awesome. safe driving bonus checks, only from allstate. sometimes i leave the seat up on purpose. switching to allstate is worth it.
steve: good morning, joel. brian: some day i'm going to meet all of those people in the control room. i've only seen the back of their heads. steve: let me introduce you to somebody else, here we have the principle deputy press secretary sarah huckabee sanders. sarah, say hello to brian. >> hi, brian. good morning. brian: thank you very much. >> sean. ainsley: sean spicer, we have to ask you right out of the gate. sean spicer is getting a promotion, that means somebody is getting his job behind the podium. is that going to be you? >> look, we all serve at the pleasure of the president, and i just proud to be part of his team and right now i'm doing
the best job i've got. steve: would you like it? would you like the job? >> again, look, -- steve: i know you serve at the pleasure of the president. so if he asks, you would take it. >> i don't think a lot of people turn the president down on anything he asks him to do, and that's going to be a reason he's so successful and pushing through and getting a lot of things done, even in these first few months in office. brian: and i know there hasn't been a lot of press availability. sean spicer has been getting grief on that. is that the way it's going to be? you'll decide what's going to be a gaggle and what's going to be a maid for television event? >> look, we've got i think one of the most accessible press teams that any administration has ever had. i have reporters coming in and out of our offices every day answering questions, getting
back to them in a number of different ways. i think that one of the powers of this presidency is his ability to communicate directly with americans with an unfiltered bias that the media often puts on things. he's got a social media platform that allows him to communicate with over 107 million people. that is a massive ability to connect without having to use that same conventional process that has been done every day. we have a number of ways that we can communicate with the american people. the president does that every day, as i think you guys are very aware of. and i don't think any person in the country could argue that we're not an accessible and transparent team, and we're getting his message out. steve: well, the president has already been tweeting his congratulations to karen handle, beat john, never led in any of the preliminary polls.
ends up beating him by about five points. for democrats waking up today where they are now 5-0. brian: 0-5. steve: their losing streak is alive, what exactly is their message? >> i don't think they have one, and i think americans have seen that, and that's one of the reasons the president continues time and time again. the mainstream media, washington bureaucracy, which is basically the democrats all pretty much the same thing, have been competing on the front. thought it was going to be a referendum on this, and once again proved to never underestimate him. and proved him and other republicans in place for a reason. they have an agenda, they have a health care system that works. they want an environment where they're creating jobs and growing the economy. that's what this president is focused on. that's why he was elected in the first place, and that's why he continues to keep winning.
frankly, i think republicans are going to get tired of winning at some point if the democrats don't ever get an agenda. ainsley: sarah, i remember when the president said that back in the iowa state fair. he's back in iowa today. what is he doing there? >> look, iowa is an important part of not just this process but of our country. it's one of the big agricultural producers in this country. i know, ainsley, you spent quite a bit of time there on the campaign trail, the big part of success in our country. if we can't do that, the president recognizes this. he's there to talk about agriculture, talk about technology and agriculture, how we can be more efficient and effective. and really talk about the backbone of our country, which is in the heartland. brian: paul ryan yesterday with a detailed speech like only he can do with his powerpoint, and he talks about taxes. he says this is a once in a
generation opportunity. when the president talks about tax reform. is that something he's going to be more hands on with health care when he said, guys, you've been working on this for eight years, show me what you've got. do you think he's going to be more hands on with this process? >> i think he's been very hands on already, both with health care and tax reform. i think he can expect him to play a huge role in this process with his team, with his administration. he's got an incredible team with guys like gary cohn, steve mnuchin on the front lines of that effort and will be working hand and hand with congress to see the biggest. ainsley: senator marco rubio is here with what's next for his friends on the other side of the aisle. brian: and he'll tell us the real story behind the picture
with ivanka that made everybody on social media explode because everybody on social media is bored. steve: and these dogs look bored. so how can you keep your pups cool and clean? ainsley: look at janice's t-shirt. brian: we're washing dogs. wha'n mountain coffee and fair trade? let's take a flight to colombia. this is boris calvo. boris grows mind-blowing coffee. and because we pay him a fair price, he improves his farm and invest in his community to make even better coffee. all for a smoother tasting cup. green mountain coffee. with the new sleep number 360 smart bed. it senses your every move and automatically adjusts on both sides. right now save on sleep number 360 smart beds. plus, it's the lowest prices of the season with savings of $500 on our most popular p5 bed.
everything exactly how i want it. here's the thing: just because i configured this car online doesn't mean it really exists at a dealership, but with truecar, i get real pricing on actual cars in my area. i see what others paid for them, and they show me the ones that match the car i want, so i know i can go to a truecar-certified dealer and it'll be right there waiting for me... today, right now. this is truecar. he's told that joke a million times.
and you always laugh like you're hearing it for the first time. at lincoln financial, we get there are some responsibilities of love you gotta do on your own. and some you shouldn't have to shoulder alone. like ensuring he's well-taken care of. even as you build your own plans for retirement. ask a financial advisor how lincoln can help protect your savings from the impact of long-term care expenses. . >> good wednesday morning. back with somebody quick headlines, he's accused of blowing up people in two states. but his lawyer don't want him labeled a terrorist. the tend to prove the suspects was guided by leaders lycosose when he allegedly set off bombs in new york and new jersey last year, injuring dozens. but his attorney argue he's never been charged with
helping or being a terrorist. the judge will rule on this tomorrow. an immigrant family is trying a hail marry to keep their father in the country. attorneys for juan rodriguez filing a federal lawsuit in texas claiming deportation. his lawyers argue kicking him out of the country goes against the religion's principle about not separating families. rodriguez has been here illegally for over a decade after fleeing violence in el salvador. ♪ ♪ steve: meanwhile, twitter going wild over this photograph, appearing to show an awkward hug senator marco rubio and ivanka trump. ainsley: that's right. the two meeting at the capitol yesterday to talk tax reform. brian: that's me at every
family gathering. i don't know if i'm hugging or kissing. hours after the photo began the rounds, marco rubio tweeted this out. quote new photos emerging providing more insight into the alleged fail hug and then in brackets faces blurred for security purposes. steve: that's right. ivanka also got in on the joke. tweeting fake news. marco is an excellent hugger. the excellent hugger joins us live from capitol hill this morning. congratulations. finally some good publicity. >> yeah. this thing has been thoroughly investigated. it's important that the senator is able to carry out a greeting. it's clear it was not actually a hug, it was more of a traditional cuban greeting that i've executed thousands of times. in fact, i'm board certified in it. so -- but anyway. steve: ivanka herself tweeted
out as well anonymous sources planned the alleged hug. i have no comment, middle of hugged him anyway. >> yeah. well, i don't discuss classified information. but the ignorant thing is that the meeting went off well. so we're just as a precaution, going to do some practice greetings today in the office. to make sure we can avoid this in the future. brian: senator, thank you for joining us this morning. have a good day. now that we handled that controversy. ainsley: should we talk about georgia and south carolina? brian: what do this two wins mean for the republican party in the special election? >> well, it's a positive thing and ultimately keeping control of the house is important, and those are two important seats in that regard. a lot of hyperventilation going on. but one of the things we're constantly reminded is that there's a political washington bubble you know? the people that are watching, cable news all day, and then the rest of the country. and the rest of the country doesn't follow this on a minute by minute basis.
so sometimes i think people think that because someone or something is unpopular among the chattering class within washington and new york, that that's somehow applies in georgia or in south carolina or many places in florida. and it's just not true. and that disconnect was brought to light in the presidential race in 2016, and i think it's been brought to light again last night. just because the conventional wisdom in washington says something increasingly conventional wisdom is wrong more often than it's right. ainsley: you know what they are talking about, they're talking about health care. where does the senate stand on this? >> well, it's a process for a starting point, and that's what's important for everyone to understand. they're just crafting the first step. now, in the senate, i can just tell you knowing the senate even in the republican congress, members are going to want an opportunity to weigh in and make changes and adjustments. and every senator as our constitution says they represent their state. and so i, for example, will look at it and say okay. most certainly want to get rid of obamacare. how is this way of getting rid of obamacare and replacing it
is it good for florida? does it treat us fairly? florida didn't expand medicaid. we shouldn't be punished for doing the right thing. so those are the kinds of things we want to look at. hour health care system has five components. medicare, medicaid, the va, the employer insurance where most people get their insurance, and then the individual marketplace. this reform effort is largely focused on two of those five. the individual market and medicaid. that's what we're debating here. steve: but i'm confused because you said this was the first step. whereas i've been reading in the papers, you're going to vote on it next week. so if this is the first step and people start talking about it, there's not going to be a vote next week. >> so, again, i respect what the leadership is trying to do. perhaps what they produce is something that everyone's in agreement with, so you can move to a vote fairly quickly. but my sense of it is there will still be some differences that need to be worked out. and here's what i want to tell everyone watching this at home. we want to get to this, and we want to do this as quickly as possible having an impact on
the markets in the sense that people want to know what the replacement is going to be. but we also have to do it right. apart from the fact that it was based on a flawed ideology, one of the reasons why obamacare failed is because they rushed it through and didn't fully understand that the famous quote we need to pass it, so we can see what's in it. we don't want to make the same mistake. so i think we need to do this right. i'm not talking about six months from now. but certainly sufficient time to understand all of its implications because once this passes, it's going to be harder to get back and try to fix it. brian: senator, you have one of the most level heads on both sides. you've been a lifesaver in terms of getting fair and balanced look at what's happening. we really appreciate you joining us this morning and handling the controversy up front and not ducking the issue. steve: yeah. >> which controversy? brian: the hug. >> the hug. that's been fully investigated. brian: we handled it. brian: now we've got health care.
marco rubio says it might work out. meanwhile, we have janice dean and dogs on the plaza, how can you keep your friends happy and healthy? get a weather pool, and she'll wash them. ainsley: but first, let's check in with bill who's somewhere in this building getting ready to do his show. >> special prosecutor i think about hug matter. brian: that's for you and shannon to work out. >> i think it's time. steve: it looks like collusion. just saying. >> good morning to all three of you. in a moment here the republicans are 4-0. tray gowdy answers that in a moment. the fbi is about to get the latest on the shooting of steve scalise and others. we will carry that live and what we're learning about the shooter. a make-or-break moment for republicans and obamacare. senator john on where they are today. it's a big morning. we'll see you in ten minutes top of the hour right here when i look in the mirror everyday. when i look in the mirror everyday. everyday, i think how fortunate i am.

when they're smelly, things like that. >> and am i right, start at the neck and work your way down? >> yeah. so you shouldn't get the water in their ears or nose or eyes. so start from the neck down. bathe, rinse, get all the areas under the tail or belly. brian: did a lot of dogs all of a sudden will shake and get everybody soaked in the edward. >> that's right. the minute you're done. >> run for the hills. >> there you go. for the face, don't wet the face. wipe it with a can cloth like you would yourself. around the chin and around the eyes. >> how about the stuff that goes on dry. you don't want that; right? >> no. you want to get this coat super wet before you put the shampoo on. and the most important thing is make sure you rinse really well so they don't get dan drift. brian: do the dogs like being clean?
>> i think they prefer it. sure. who likes smiley and dirty? brian: and last one the leon. >> has a thick coat. you have to brush it before you wash. and then the same thing. make sure it doesn't clump into the coat on a furry dog and wash and really, really rinse. >> questions on the break, anybody? put your hand up. answer all of your dog questions. back in a moment. wet your dog neck down. next thing you know, you have a happy dog. back in a moment then the chronic, widespread pain slowed me down. my doctor said moving more helps ease fibromyalgia pain. he also prescribed lyrica. fibromyalgia is thought to be the result of overactive nerves. lyrica is believed to calm these nerves. woman: for some, lyrica can significantly relieve fibromyalgia pain and improve function, so i feel better. lyrica may cause serious allergic reactions suicidal thoughts or actions. tell your doctor right away if you have these,
