"fox and friends" with me. we've got a beach party on the plaza this morning. we will show you how to have the
ultimate beach party. this ike standout bear, gross. abby: because tivo actually looks like a wedding out there. you can have a sand castle. welcome back to both of you. so good to have you two back. pete: great to have the band back together. in the new studio. we have a new studio. i've gained an extra two pounds. abby: pete had quite a big day. pete: the show is growing as well. the classic "fox and friends." don't turn the channel because there's only one place to hear from exclusive footage from the president of the united states, donald trump. i found this program all morning long. i had the privilege of being in the oval office on the va county bill as well as the roosevelt
room just off the oval office. they set it up for us in with a chance to do with the president
for about 15 minutes. he answered our questions. we will bring it to you all morning long, starting with this. >> mr. president, thank you for joining. you faced resistance on this bill, but of course the entire agenda. who has been your biggest opponent? democrats resisting domestic news media? when you think about it, what holds up? >> when i ran, i talked about the rick system. i wasn't getting the delegates i should be getting. i would look at this. i said what kind of a system. the whole system -- a lot of bad things going on. a lot of very bad things going on. one of the things that should be solved are probably won't be as the republicans and democrats don't get together. i am open nervous, but it seemed that happening. they fight each other. the level of hostility.
this isn't just drunk. you've been doing this for a long time. it has been like that for a long time. the level of hostility is an example of the health care bill would be so great if the democrats and republicans could get together, wrap their arms around it so that everybody is happy with it. it is so easy, but we won't get one democrat vote, not one. the greatest bill ever proposed in mankind we wouldn't get a vote. and that is a terrible thing. well, their theme is resist. i've never heard of anything like this. resist. >> how frustrating is it to have former president obama leads in the resistance. >> i don't see them beating it. don't forget, i saw senator schumer criticizing the bill a couple weeks ago and he had no idea what it is.
in fact, the republican senators didn't know because it wasn't released. very few people knew appearance that he was criticizing the bill he had no idea what is in the bill. and that is a terrible word. the theme is resist. their theme should be let's get together, and dial-up. let's get together. their theme is resist. it is obstruction. they become obstructionist and the voters happen to like it from the standpoint of running for office. i think it is a terrible theme in terms of getting elected. more importantly a terrible thing for the people of this country and resist obstruction. that's not what they want. pete: how do you overcome that one? people are going to die because the president trans health care bill. >> i call her pocahontas and that's an insult to pocahontas.
i actually think she is someone that has a lot of pay grade, a lot is anger. i don't think she has the support some people do. i watched her campaigning for hillary and she was so angry hillary would be sitting back listening to her, trying to smile. a lot of people were going now, is this what we want? there's a lot of anger there and hostility. i think she is a highly overwrought moves. pete: is over precedented to come out the way president obama has. he came out facebook instead your bill, mr. president, not a health care bill. a massive transfer of wealth double harm americans. >> that was my turn. because i want to see, and i speak from the heart. that's all i want to see. i want to see a bill with heart.
oscar is a complicated subject from the standpoint that you move it this way in the way in this group doesn't like it. moved a little bit over here in there's a very narrow path. honestly, nobody can be totally happy. forget about those. this has nothing to do with boats. -- votes. you need a plan that everybody is going to like. i wish i could say love, but i feel like. we have a few people that are modestly standing on the rooftop screaming. they want to get some points. pete: republican senators do enough to have your back to get that bill? >> i think so. every relationships with most of the people in the senate, and the house. there's a lot of great french troops with people in the house. same thing in the senate. therefore very good people are friends of mine. famous last words.
i think we are going to get there. for years i've been watching the battle of health care and i watched during the clinton administration hillary rightfully devoted her life to getting health care. you watched what happened with obamacare, which by the time they finished with it is something that doesn't work. look what happened with nebraska where they give the great nebraska giveaway. it was a very close session. they talked about behind closed doors. nothing more close than obamacare. the bottom line is they worked so long and so hard, they got a plan that didn't work. they got a health care plan that didn't work. i've only done it for five months. you know, they worked during a long time. during the clinton administration to work essentially during the clinton administration. health care is a a very, very testing. but i think we are going to get it. we don't have too much of a choice because the alternative
is the dead carcass obamacare. that's what it is. pete: and the "washington post" this morning, and though the engine of the bill you are signing. it is such an historic bill. are they going to cover this? every breathless scandal in the media today. >> i heard today for the first time obama heard about russia a long time before the election and he did nothing about it, but nobody wants to talk about that. the cia gave information on russia a long time before, you know, before
the election. and i heard the ca. it is an amazing thing. if he had the information, why did they do something about it? he should've done something about it. but you don't read that. it is quite sad. elected leagues with sources,
many of which don't exist. there is a thing going on in the country and hopefully the sickness in that sense. you know what, i am so
proud of what we have done in such a short period of time. pete: it was a good conversation. i go want to ask more about the va bill signing us up if you heard to refer to it. historic day for veterans but a lot of talk about health care. >> i was a big one. this week of course we will see much more of that. he's up against these five republican senators did democrats willing to come to the table. pete: and he says they are a nightmare. clayton: there are things he is unhappy with. one key area is medicaid. the constituents in the senate bill/the spending on medicaid. some republicans as well as as well as democrats and this is what it's up against the cuts taxes on the rich by cutting medicaid. it's cutting medicaid in order to provide taxes and some of
these republicans. >> the dish of photos that are not getting boats yet. the premiums are not going to go down enough that not enough flexibility. it was a great interview. it's interesting to see him react to being in washington because as someone who's never been inside of politics before, he's been quite surprised at how little democrats and republicans are willing to work together on anything. they don't even sit down and have a real conversation. he said i'm not going to get one democratic vote. not necessarily because they don't agree with what we are proposing, but the politics of it all. pete: humane beta to washington, but he said their opposition is sought. he said/medicaid. but they would argue no, it's actually very gradual, gentle
transition in 2021 to a gentle way of doing business. it is crushing our budget right now and if we don't get our debt under control, programs like this in the future could get splashed. it's a responsible, gradual approach to giving states responsibility over how they spend their medicaid dollars. increase choice. you have to frame a talk about it as opposed to letting mainstream media do that. they are wanting to get to guess. if anyone can do it, it's president trump. =tranfour democrats have said if you have obamacare in place to begin with, yes it's not perfect, but this is a much shakier proposition for them. you are shaking up obamacare even more by going this route. pete: republican say you have to revive the health care market. it's totally undercut the market. markets are what drive costs down and empower consumers. republicans trying to do without gutting that are slashing and that the delicate balance.
abby: the fact you were surprised in that moment when you said that, all of this stuff when it comes to russia and now we find out that president barack obama knew about this well before he was commander-in-chief and he did nothing about it. >> the first i've heard, we heard a lot about it since. what an amazing legislation that the president couldn't stop it. that's a scandal in and of itself. >> great interview. abby: he was supposed to investigate the president for collusion with russia, but some members of congress calling on bob mueller to step down. congressman andy biggs from arizona joining us next. pete: brought to you by the congress of a she never called for president trump. change back -- abby: it never happened.

>> it is very with comey. which is very bothersome. there's been no corruption, no pollution. there has been leaking by comey. the people hired have been hillary clinton supporters. some of them were trailer contained. the whole thing is ridiculous if you want to know the truth from that standpoint. pete: the storyline that mainstream media can't let go of. the president and rush out president and russia are now one congressman is calling for the special counsel to investigate robert mueller to step aside. andy biggs join me now. nice to see this morning.
robert mueller in charge of this investigation. you are in the minority, my friend. you are calling him to step aside and recuse themselves. republicans and democrats have come to his defense and he's been announced and appointed. how does it feel to be in the minority on this? >> you know, it doesn't matter to maturities that you are not. if you are right, you are right. i'm pretty comfortable making this statement. clayton: how are you right? and which raise the compromising? >> first of all, the special counsel is supposed to be independent. this is to come at the very objective point of view to look at something. usually where there is real evidence. what we find out is the very appointment of a special counsel was manipulated by former director comey who is specifically trying to get a special counsel appointed. lo and behold we don't find that out until mr. mueller is appointed. we know that mr. mueller was
meeting with the president the day before he was appointed. as a pipe and still take place in a vacuum. this thing has been going on. the manipulation has been taking place and yet it's supposed to be an objective event. that's some kind of manipulated, subject to bias investigation. clayton: you think mueller would be biased? >> i mean, he has indicated that by the very fact that everyone is a democrat supporter and that is coloring at least a very minimum that is coloring the investigation. we also moved up the original topic which was the russian issue and now we are talking about obstruction of justice. he's going to keep expanding the scope looking for something. these are problems of special counsel. clayton: the argument is he has an impeachable career and the former head of the fbi, would
you say to that argument? doesn't matter which side of the aisle. he served both equally. >> yeah, that is a great argument until we started looking into it. he did serve 12 years and got an extension by president obama. what we see here is the whole process was covered. the whole process is problematic and then we look now, who has the higher two command? they certainly seem to have some kind of motivation. clayton: do you think he would get a replacement? >> well, yeah. if he were to recuse himself from certainly a replacement would be found. clayton: andy biggs committee met for joining us. we appreciate it. is the writer making headlines headlines for the wrong reason, treating this. trumpeter for the kids want to pass a bill that would kill far more americans than isis and al qaeda would ever dream about. the green beret here to react to

but for their side if they suspect their benefit oasis because everyone goes yeah, right on. it will go away. abby: considering health care and comparing it to al qaeda and health care. you know we are dealing when it comes to terrorism how nasty, ruthless, awful it is. how dangerous is that when it comes to health care? >> not too long ago i would've said don't worry about it. it's an interesting thing with the congressman being shot. you start thank you maybe they need to stop saying this, but they can't because they can't defend their position so they've got to go for that. >> they haven't even read the bill. >> it is a knee-jerk reaction. it's kind of effective on their side. we laugh at it, but people are getting wound up about it. >> they didn't do it if they didn't feel it was effective. they couldn't say you couldn't just have a different way of
repealing health care. you must take certain things and want them to die. >> if you want obamacare you hate children, grandma, diabetics, black people and any other group they want to get upset about this. it's intellectually lazy. it's actually a responsible and not getting anything done. obamacare numbers, examples, obamacare was not doing well. so instead of going maybe we can do this, no, you hate people. that's why trump won. that's why not because of america. or kind of tired of people calling us racist, evil, misogynist when we are just trying to do the right thing as well. republicans want clean air and their kids to be okay. >> people are smart. they get it. abby: good to have you on. pete: i want to be in the

>> their bill will make older and sicker americans pay more for less coverage while millionaires and billionaires get a break on their taxes. it will cost to go up, care to go down in the millions of americans without health insurance. the president said the senate bill needed hard. the way this bill cuts health care is heartless. the senate republicans health care bill is a wolf in sheep's clothing. only this wolf has even sharper teeth in the house bill. >> schumer criticizing the bill a couple weeks ago when he had
no idea what was in the bill. it is different now. he had no idea. in fact, the republican senators didn't know because it wasn't released. very few people knew. he was criticizing the bill he had no idea what was in a bill. think of it. the theme is resist. they are seeking should be looked at together, and fell up. let's get together. but the theme is resist. pete: are they going to come to the table? former n.y.p.d. police officer and fox renegade republican, dan bongino. good to see this morning. >> yet committed to be here. >> you're the president talking about democrats in the resistance. the president had these five other republicans that he stealing with right now that also appear to be a no vote. democrats don't plan to do anything on this. they are going to watch them fall apart at the seams here.
>> yeah, great. listen. i'm a republican in this resistance movement is being led by a bunch of political clowns. think about it logically be reasonable for a moment. the resistance movement seems to be specializing in one thing. resisting actual public will victories. the democrats have gotten smoked over the last two years. state, local, federal level. zero for five in the special election. what are they resisting? i am not giving them advice at all. if you think for a minute running on a platform is a really good political platform with political viability in the future, you're out of your mind. abby: maybe should tell that to maxine waters. she's been out there from the very beginning. watch what they were chanting.
>> impeach 45, impeach 45, impeach 45, impeach 45, impeach 45. abby: if you are later the democratic party and you watch this commute got to be thinking this is why we are not winning elections. we're not focusing on issues that are impacting people. >> yeah, abby. the constitution delineates impeachment for high crimes and misdemeanors. the democrats want to add to that an embarrassing political losses, too. impeach for what? what are you going to impeach work? what is the crime here? was the grandmother than the fact you lost an election you thought you were going to win to a guy you just really don't like. pete: the crime is the conclusion on trent collusion with vladimir putin. >> which incredibly for months now, for six months to a year, not one respectable democrat has
been able to produce a pill of evidence that donald trump knew everything about russia other than a couple business deals he had at this company. wishes a big big country. businessmen are rushed all the time. this is a crime, everybody in congress to be arrested for something. it is all made up nonsense. the longer they stick with it, the longer the amount of time they stay away from the issues. pete: there's another investigation underway the senate has launched into former attorney general beretta lynch into how she may have mischaracterized or been part of mischaracterizing the investigation. we took a quick look at how much coverage that has gotten in the so-called mainstream media. of course, this is how much coverage of the fact she's now under investigation for potentially mischaracterizing it. 30 seconds at abc, nothing that nbc or cbs. the so-called russia probe
yesterday, this is 10 minutes, nine men on the evening newscasts. are we ever going to see a fair accounting of the factor was a lot of political maneuvering going on at the obama administration? >> no, you are not. the bad news. here's how the media covers are public kids. create a serious charge and then try to dig up evidence to create evidence behind the charge even though there's nothing there. the evidence presents itself against the person and that's ignoring the evidence all along and created alternative to vindicate the person later on. it's a completely different approach. it's really sad. it's not fair to people who run for office that when you are republican, what is happening right now is a stain on the media's reputation that i think is going to damage them in the future. when you look at republicans in the media, 10% of republicans
trust them. this is not good for the future of the country and it's really sad we've come to this point. abby: dangerous, too because it takes away all the bandwidth of whatever one's talking about. when they want to hear about health care, immigration, we're not hearing about that. we hear about russia, russia. people are getting sick of that. pete: is not the point, though? isn't that what they are trying to do? the media and opposition are trying to show a wrench in the gears. >> they are part of the democrat party. listen, guys, the american public has to understand the mainstream media is part of the democrat party. the card is leading the horse. they are the ones that are pulling the democrat to the narrative they want. it is not the democrats calling the media saying we need to impeach trump. it is the media saying we need to lead the democrats along that narrative.
that is the difference they are. >> every new headline on russia, and they are leading that charge. abby: dan bongino, thank you. a headline following a pro-hillary clinton group appears to be behind the anti-trump dossier. "the new york post" reported the washington firm may be in opposition research group for democratic. a fusion gps was on the people of an identified clinton ally with a retired british spy to dig up dirt on president trump. the man behind the report, new york post columnist will join us in the 9:00 a.m. hour. you don't want to miss that. also the trump administration had plans to punish any leakers of american papers. >> week, and i would say all of president trump is focused on stopping leaks from any agency and when they have been pursuing them with incredible vigor.
pete: might hump@msnbc that he blames the motives were hiding out in russia is the information behind the recent leaks from intelligence agencies. returning to the speaking circuit with a warning for the american people. take a listen. >> it is now being grown in mexico in the hidden parts right now. so now, it is a coming attraction. it is going to eat us all alive. abby: at a conference in miami warning mayors across the country about the dangers of drugs in this country from the mexican border and how those drugs are feeling an urban gang problem in american cities. we've heard that before. trade to coming up next, more of my sitdown interview with president trump.

pete: welcome back. more at the exclusive interview with president trump. the reason i went there was for the bill signing up at the accountability and whistleblower protection act, which is at the end of a really three-year process trying to make sure the secretary to be a can fire employees. a truly historic bill signing in something that will make the lives of veterans better.
this is a passion of the presidents for a long time. i asked the
president, why are you so invested in the v8 and what is this bill revealed? >> we're just in the east room for an historic bill signing. >> well, it's really an accountability bill. people in the va wouldn't work where they do much worse than not and you couldn't fire them. you couldn't get rid of them. they were hanging around, receiving money. they weren't taking care of our veterans. i was taking care of our veterans appointment voted for me overwhelmingly. i just had my own heart, a very strong obligation. we had a pass. tom cotton and some of the other people were so involved that they worked so hard and so long and now is a tough one to get through. now they do have accountability.
pete: by would've though that makes so much common sense, why would it be hard to get back? >> they have a very difficult fight. you have unions. the unions don't see anything like that where you can fire someone right away if they are not doing a good job. it's called accountability. a lot of forces you can imagine and you know them better than anyone. you are one of the reasons -- i used to watch you on fox talking about the veterans with such heart. you are one of the factors i will tell you when we started speaking about it. we've done a lot for the veterans, but she did have a lot of forces against this bill. pete: absolutely. when you wrote on the article, is the first time they make veterans issues come you mentioned multiple times in that speech. you've been involved with veterans issues. where did that come from? >> i always talk to veterans who are given a fair shake here they fight wars, lose limbs, lose
lives and they've gone through so much it has always felt they were never appreciated the way they should be appreciated. i'm not just talking about them as a bloc, which is a big block, but talking about the voters outside of the veterans. but i always felt like they were not given a fair shake and then you read the disaster stories where people are waiting online for seven, eight, nine days to see a doctor or worse where they have a disease or problem or a form of cancer that usually quickly curable they have 286, seven, eight months and by the time they get and, it's too late. the things that go on our incredible. we have dr. david shaw can do will make tremendous compassion, but he's also a tough cookie. we are getting it done and doing whatever is necessary. we have many coming.
when you look at that in the not-too-distant future, it's a much different place. pete: mr. president, thank you for your time and on behalf of american veterans
we appreciate it. it's truly an historic day. >> thank you. pete: the reverberations with the rest of the government. yet the ability to fire people who were doing well. they are sitting on this job collecting money. pete: it's a major civil service perform not only at the va. the rest of the government may turn around and say we want that authority, too. so i know secretary shall kid was already using it. abby: it also says a lot about people like you who are so passionate about a cause they don't give up and keep fighting and fighting and hopefully somebody sees that. how to do something and make the difference. this is a businessman who said how complicated is it even to

eliquis reduced the risk of stroke better than warfarin, plus had less major bleeding than warfarin. eliquis had both. don't stop taking eliquis unless your doctor tells you to, as stopping increases your risk of having a stroke. eliquis can cause serious and in rare cases fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... ...and it may take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. i'm still going for my best. and for eliquis. ask your doctor about eliquis.

their island here on our site. aruba the country built a beach party. thank you, aruba. >> a gazebo in case you want to come get married this morning. we will make history on "fox and friends." are you certified? pete: i'm certified, yet. i give you a certificate when you're done. abby: clayton, the best part of the show is an exclusive interview with the president of the united states. pete: it is "fox and friends" weekend. the president's interview -- abby: you are really good at that. you did have a good interview. pete: thank you. he was an honor to sit down with the president before the va accountability act which is in and of itself in historic chance. we'll ask in the latest on health care and what does he think the bill can get done. some of the headlines,
opposition, resistance against him is an answer you will see only here on "fox and friends." >> mr. president, thank you for joining. we've got resistance on the bill but you faced resistance on the entire agenda. who's your biggest opponent? democrats resisting, fake news media, when you think about it, what holds it up? >> when i ran i talked about the brake system. i wasn't getting the delegates i should be getting. i would look at this. well, the whole system is very -- a lot of bad things going on. one of the things that should be solved but probably won't be as republicans and democrats don't get together. i'm open arms but i don't see that happening. they fight each other. the level of hostility. this isn't just wrong. it's been like this for years.
it's been like that for a long time. but the level of hostility is an example of the health care bill you are up 49 will be great if the democrats and republicans could get together, wrap their arms around it and come up with something that everybody's happy with. it's so easy, but we won't get one democrat though. not one. the greatest bill ever proposed in mankind we wouldn't get a vote. and that's a terrible thing. they are famous resist. i've never heard of anything like this. >> how frustrating a former president of i'm out there leading the resistance? >> he actually put out a small statement. don't forget i saw schumer criticizing the bill a couple weeks ago. he had no idea what was in the bill. he had no idea.
in fact, republican senators didn't now because it was released. very few people knew. he was criticizing the bill he had no idea what was in the bill. that is a terrible word. inc. about it. the theme is resist. their theme should be let's get together, envelop. but it's obstruction. the problem is they become obstructionist and the voters i happen to like it from the standpoint of running for office. they think it's a terrible thing in terms of getting the like did. more importantly for the people of this country, resist, obstruction. that's not what they want. >> how to overcome not when they say people are going to die because of president trump's health care bill. >> i think she's a hopeless case. i call her pocahontas and the attendant sold to pocahontas. she is someone that's got a lot of hatred, lot of anger.
>> she's got about a microphone. >> she does. i don't think she has the support some people do. i watched her campaign for hillary and she was so angry. there were a lot of people going wow, is this what we want? there's a lot of anger they are and hostility. she's a highly overrated voice. >> is also impressive than i do, how on facebook recently you may have seen it. your bill, mr. president, not a health care bill. a massive transfer of wealth. what do you say to the former president? >> he actually used my term. i want to see, and i speak from the heart. that's what i want to see. health care is a very complicated subject from the standpoint that you move it this way in this group doesn't like
it. move it a little bit over here, a very narrow pass. honestly, nobody can be totally happy. forget about those. this has to do with making the plan that everybody is going to like. i'd like to say love, but light. we have a very good plan. we have a few people that are i think you could save modest. they are standing on the rooftops and screening. pete: a republican senator soon enough to have your back? >> i think so. i have great relationships with most of the people in the senate and in the house. i worked very hard and have a lot of great friendships with people in the house. same thing in the senate. i don't think they are that far off. famous last words, right? if he blew the affair. for years we've been watching the battle on health care and i
watch during the clinton administration. hillary rightfully devoted her life to getting health care. she was unable to get it. you watch what happened with obamacare, which by the time they're finished with it was something that doesn't work. but what happens in nebraska were they gave a great nebraska giveaway. it was very close session. it was nothing more close than obamacare. the bottom line is they worked so long and so hard, they got a plan that didn't work. a health care plan that didn't work. i've only been there for five months. they've been there a long time. the clinton administration they worked during the entire administration. health care is a very committed very tough thing to get. i think we are going to get it. we don't have too much of a choice because the alternative is a dead carcass of obamacare. that's what it is.
pete: in the "washington post" this morning, no mention on all of the bill you are signing today. for better and so passionate about this historic bill, are they going to cover this and if they don't, why don't they covered the way they cover every breathless scandal of the media today? pete: i knew about russia long time before the election. but nobody did anything about it. nobody wants to talk about it. the cia gave information a long time before the election. and i hardly see it. it's an amazing thing. in other words, if he had the information, why didn't he do something about it? but you don't read that. it's quite sad. they are very selective leaks resources. i love the sources, many of which don't exist. there is a thing going on in the
country is somewhat a sickness in the sense. you know what, i'm so proud of what we've done in such a short period of time. >> you so much more optimistic about health care, just the idea of coming together that anyone in the media could have been. republicans are not that far off. if you listen to the media companies got five republican senators who's never going to work with how much of a disaster this is. he said i know these people. i understand what they are debating. >> but the same thing about the house bill. they didn't have enough votes and conservatives were holding out. that's what you have with rand paul in mike lee and run johnson. they want to see some improvement. they are quite confident as a dealmaker he can do that. it's all about how you message it as well. democrats say you want to kill people.
>> it's going to kill people and slashing medicaid. people are going to die under this bill. no movement to come to the table and say we need to fix obamacare because it relies upon shaky ground. abby: you will always have a resistance movement. at least the people would come to the table and debate their side of it to get somewhere. what he was saying is there is no effort for the democrats. they don't want to read the bill are come to the table. that is a problem for this country. the american people are getting really frustrated. they do not only no effort that the impugned the affair. you want her people. you want to redistribute to the rich. maybe we think reintroducing competition and choice you can improve outcomes. we can be responsible about it.
it doesn't even phase in changes to medicare until 2021. states will have maximum flexibility and accredits indifferent things republicans appreciate and understand. i think republicans could win the argument by laying out what their field does and how will improve insurance for a lot of american. >> you see a shift among democrats recently in rhetoric and discussions over the past 24-48 hours and may be realizing we need to step back from this because it's not helping. >> it's not helping us put forward their agenda whatever that may be. he talked with him about that, whether there is collusion. he's fired up about it. pete: no collusion, no obstruction and no evidence of it. >> at their worst, that's what would've leapt at this point. they go to their town hall in district and come back to washington. they wake up, guys. >> people are telling them, we don't want to hear about it.
president trump had a confidence to him yesterday. the media might be yelling, but we are on the verge -- >> and former president obama. i was coming before an arrest. maybe we will see democrats quiet down. one senator from vermont came out and said they got it back down. >> will play more in the interview coming up here. those five republican senators holding the health care build their hand. so who are they? what do they want? will break down the list of republicans and what it costs next. post-bernie sanders and his wife are wearing now. latest troubles with the fbi. whether they will bother to cover it at all. once upon a time
the homeowner was outraged. luckily the geico insurance agency had helped her with homeowners insurance. she got all her shingles replaced. hansel and gretel were last seen eating their way through the candy cane forest. call geico and see how easy it is to switch and save on homeowners insurance. it as moms, 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.
>> we had a very good plan. a few people that you could say i'm honestly not stand on the rooftop and screening. they wanted the point. i think they'll get some points. the problem we have is obamacare is done. abby: dowser exclusive interview with a handful of republican senators still on the gop health care bill. z-zulu are the senators and why are they jeopardizing this critical vote? administer when is the congressional report from real clear politics. thank you for being with us. >> thanks for having me. >> let's go through each of these senators and tell us what they want to get out of the new bill. >> dean heller is the republican from nevada. he's probably the most are
vulnerable republican senator in 2018 and his concerns with the biller with medicaid. this concerned the cut rack in the rollback of the expansion in 2021 will have harmful effects. it turned getting more spending to help the medicaid expansion and go back to a really tall order that the medicaid funding is an issue that the pullback a lot in this bill. dean heller will want more money and more federal funding to help the people in nevada. >> rand paul has been outspoken about health care from the beginning. >> rand paul is the most frustrated. he considers that obamacare light. he doesn't like the tax credit, how people afford insurance. he doesn't like -- he thinks they don't go far enough in rolling back medicaid. he wants a complete overhaul, complete repeal and he's the
toughest vote to give right now. abby: what about ted cruz? >> he's been negotiating, working well with leadership. what ted cruz wants is the ability for health insurers to offer plans that are come play with obamacare regulations that stay on the boat. he wants to offer more flexibility, with these regulations. he will offer an amendment to do that. i think ted cruz came get to yes. drink in one of his best friend and for my state, mike lee. >> makers problem with the obamacare regulations. he takes those drive up premiums and drive up costs for people. they simplex abilities that were compliant with those regulations and likely could get to yes. abby: finally, ron johnson. >> run johnson is said interesting case. he hasn't talked about his specific problems. he talked about the process, the way it was written in the back
room, mostly with leadership. what he wanted most was the ability to take some time to look over it. run johnson did get to yes. he has some similar concerns. he had a problem with the process but over the next couple days he will have a chance to get some input and he will probably be able to get yes on it. abby: will see where all this goes. thank you. coming up, loretta lynch now under investigation by the senate and it seems like a big story, that the mainstream media apparently does not think so. the surprising lack of coverage ahead. jerry seinfeld one of the most famous comedians in the world had one baseball star says he's never heard of him. what is the deal with that? we've got that, not. -- coming up.

probe yet almost nothing of a new investigation into a former attorney general. >> on one hand the coverage by volume. the loretta lynch allocation. we are talking about events that transpired more than a year ago. at the same time, this does offer more or less a roadmap to anyone who covers the clinton scandals in both cases we are talking about an allegation a senior administration officials were to downplay publicly significance of an investigation. the obstruction of justice, witness intimidation, laundry list of offenses. in clinton's case we don't know what it amounts to because the media has been more or less silent. we've seen this time and again from reporters willingness to ipo talking points with very little skepticism while actively debunking of rejecting republican talking points about clinton in the name of objectivity is a double
standard. >> they're not covering this. they are covering something else. the mainstream media, nbc, cbs nightly news has spent seven minutes respectively, there is for it they are on the so-called trump russia probe. that's the last two days. there hasn't been that much no information yet. they are covering it in the lead. why. >> job, we are getting multiple coverage on every single tiny update the trump russia investigation because it fits their narratives. we are not getting hardly any coverage about hillary clinton and the rest of lynch collusion that may or may not have happened because that doesn't fit their narrative. i can't say i'm surprised. these are the same people throughout the entire election, the same people who wrote about her fashion choices and charming profiles about her gal pal.
i am not surprised at all that they are decided to not cover this update in this investigation because it simply doesn't fit their narrative. pete: i've got to get your take on another aspect here. the white house correspondent association is concerned there's fewer press briefings. do the american people care about this and does it have to be on camera for reporters to be informed about what's happening at the white house? >> they have offered them a comfortable sound bites and clips to the white house. press secretary sean spicer was not wrong this week when he said the intensity and the content of the briefings change when he flipped the cameras off. and they are nearly everyday. i can attest to that. at the same time the white house does expose itself to criticism by cutting back in the middle of a controversy. it would've been one thing if they do this directly after the transition when they first floated the idea of limiting the number of televised briefings.
to do it in the middle of a controversy just feels democrats arguments that the white house is avoiding questions. train to the american people care. does it feel questions are not feed into the feeding frenzy? >> there's good reporters who ask questions like sarah. there is also a lot of reporters as an opportunity to grandstand. we have a lot of that all throughout this administration or this term. the american people are served by reporters and it's unfortunate to more substantive reporters may be unfairly punished or might make their jobs harder. at the same time, clinton's presser kateri said he regretted having the briefings be televised because he got a lot of reporters use it as an opportunity to make themselves the story. the fact we talk about it today instead of a lot of other policy decisions shows that the media
really is driving the narrative and trying to make the news cycle all about themselves. >> if you want control back to the narrative, choose a different media, which is what the white house has done. thank you very much for your time. coming up, president trump blasted the democrats resisted in a sitdown interview with him, calling him up structures. our reaction next. and bernie sanders and his wife are lower your ring up. bush fans and the media even bother covering it? ♪ destroy.

what's the best way to get v8 or a fancy juice store?s? 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. >> at the obstruction and the problem is they become obstructionist in the voters happen to like it from the standpoint of running for office. but i think it's a terrible thing in terms of getting the like it. more importantly a terrible thing for the people of the country to resist the obstruction. it's what they want. abby: that's her exclusive interview. blasting democratic in urging they come together. but they don't seem to be listening.
>> mph 45, impeach 45, mph 45. pete: that is impeach 45 by maxine waters. david webb, it shall be holiday democratic strategist michael phil. i have discovered through the democratic side. this resist movement, are we seeing fractured among democrats that this thing is not working, that they need a cohesive plan in order to win in 2018? >> fraction is exactly the right word. i democrats spending too much time talking about russia? we were assuming one democratic party at this point, but there's actually several. there's leadership in a more and then there are the younger folks out there thinking a thought to be working with these protests. when we say democrats, who are talking about? clayton: that's a good question. where do democrats look for
leadership right now? >> time is ticking but they are scrambling to find leadership. the people of, that the ug in different levels of the party. some people don't. we also note generally americans save terrorism, economy and health care at the top three issues. that's not what democrats are talking about. politically that is not helpful in winning special elections. it's not helpful in uniting the base. i will same congress that had been active in blocking the agenda at least up until now. when you hear them talk about russia, some things result from trumps tweets such as a special counsel. overall we spend a tremendous amount of time talking about russia. not just because democrats are talking about it, but the president as well. >> are they trained to needle the president can do getting him to say something on twitter.
is that what's going on here? >> you don't need to deal him. he will go his own way and so will the people with 140 characters. the democrats haven't got a policy objection to show these points. obstruction works for them. it's really not president trump's agenda. millions of people voted him into office and this is the problem. the white house office of innovation, very good in technology and epa scott pruitt, looking to a thousand employees and other things to 38 pieces of legislation and executive orders combined. the travel ban will go to the supreme court, the ipad of the the constitution because those are plenary powers were powers given to the president in the constitution. the people's agendas are losing because john ossoff can simply sit there and give no policy
objection. >> i was covering the election. >> where's the leadership right now? >> still trying to figure this out. it's not against something like we saw in georgia especially. what they are for, whether it is a more progressive agenda for a more moderate centrist agenda. we saw that played out. clayton: we really don't have an answer. we should stay away from just piling on the criticism, whether it's about russia or comey because that has its own independent dynamic. that will happen on its own. we are much better off if we do the hard work of coming up with an agenda talking about trump in russia create an agenda. >> yes to all of that. the russia controversy is complicated but different legal
thresholds involving obstruction and liability of multiple investigations. but that unfold the way it unfolds. focus on core issues. >> are you hearing that, in the laws of washington and reporting to "the wall street journal" that they agree with him on this? >> some democrats agree. maxine waters doesn't agree. she is out there saying impeach 45. when you look ever public cares, you know, some are concerned about russia appear generally everyone agrees southtrust gets more criticism than any other president and republicans say that solidifies report for president trump. that makes him more supportive and that is not going to help democrats because they need those republicans onboard. >> no, not at all. they had four kids. to your point about the split democrat party. did god the leadership of perez.
debbie wasserman schultz in the wings and hillary clinton. look at where they are now going forward. what are they doing? either way, maxine waters tune out factors coming into play. they too now. what matters to me. my economy, my kitchen table and my security. >> it was great to see their reporting. great to have all of you. abby upstairs for some headlines. abby: bernie sanders and his wife are scrambling to voyeur up -- lawyer up. after lying to set the campus seven years ago which is claiming millions of dollars which did not exist in order to get the loan. the whole ordeal led to the college closing the doors last year.

about collusion, obstruction, all of that. they look at that is largely political. what they're focusing on and the trump team has already answered their number one question the allies have been bad is the obama policy in disengagement is over. the united states is back on the world stage operating as a global leader promoting peace, stability and security, prosperity. the united defense got allies back in president trump, vice president, secretary of state, secretary of defense has told allies exactly that. that is what they want to know about the number one concern when it came to the united states. >> in my interview with the president, we learned former president obama knew more about the involvement than we thought and they tried to cut it out.
how did their weak response to russia in their meddling, how did it set back our ability? >> i think that's extraordinarily unfortunate that president obama had it not bad. frankly, it is part of his behavior. he has always been my judgment observed a president for a number of years. i've never seen a president so paralyzed by fear of adverse consequences. being a president requires some kind of metal. you've got to stand up, have some mental toughness comes the moral courage to overcome their fear. look at the checklist. russia indexes crimea. it moves into ukraine. they ask for help. we refused. nothing of consequence without. i don't think russia goes into syria. we say no to the libyans after gadhafi is deposed. we say no to this year and
moderates who want to stand up against the side. we don't react to the chemical redlined that obama established. to keep some chemical weapons and recently used them and say what did we accomplish there? what they see they are is something that endangers them. it's no wonder that putin did what he did. purposely trying to disrupt our elections. he knew he would probably get caught. nothing of any consequence would come of it. pete: you can restore american leadership, but doesn't this witchhunt ultimately hurt our ability to undermine our allies as well? >> only if elected and he hasn't done that. there he stood in the middle east and told them united states is standing with you against the number one strategic round against radical islam. and then asked him to do specific things in their own
countries to deal with the specific threat. only if you let them. >> occurred because of the way you're going after them. general keane, thank you very much. appreciate it. >> good talking to you. pete: coming up, my sitdown interview with president trump. democrats, health care, va and much, much more. and we are having a beach party on the plaza. not just celebrating summer. we are celebrating love. the perfect destination wedding next. ♪ phone with our allstate agent, and i know that we have accident forgiveness. so the incredibly minor accident that i had tonight- four weeks without the car. okay, yup. good night. with accident forgiveness your rates won't go up just because of an accident. switching to allstate is worth it.

minutes in the roosevelt room with the president. we're releasing segments of it. we were there for a historic signing of the v.a. bill, a president championing that, got a bill passed, signed it, hold people accountable at the v.a. and also obviously a lot of news going, health care, investigations,
we asked president trump about all of it, and this is what he had to say. mr. president, thank you for joining fox. you faced resistance on this ball, and of course you've faced resistance on the entirety of your agenda. who's been your biggest opponent opponent? has it been democrats resisting? fake news media? deep state leaks? when you think about it, what holds it up? >> you know, when i ran i talked about the rigged system because i saw i was winning states that i wasn't getting the delegates that i should be getting, i would looted and say "what kind of a system?" well, the whole system is very -- a lot of bad things going, a lot of very bad things going on. one of the things that should be solved and probably won't be is
that republicans and democrats don't get together. and i'm open arms, but i don't see that happening. they fight each other, they -- the level of hostility. and, by the way, this isn't just trump; this has been like this for years. you've been doing this for a long time. it's been like that for a long time. but the level of hostility, as an example, the health care bill that you are reporting on and everybody's reporting on. it would be so great if the democrats and republicans could get together, wrap their arms around it, and come up with something that everybody's happy with. it's so easy. but we won't get one democrat vote, not one. and if it were the greatest bill ever proposed in mankind, we wouldn't get a vote. and that's a terrible thing. there is. look, their theme is "resist." i've never heard of anything like this. resist. pete: how frustrating is it to have former president obama out there leading the resistance? >> i don't think he's leading it it. he actually just put out a small
statement. i don't see that leading it. but other people are leading. don't forget i saw schumer criticizing the bill a couple of weeks ago, and he had no idea what was in the bill. he was saying this bill is this and it's that. he had no idea. in fact, the republican senators didn't know because it wasn't released. very few people knew. so he had criticizing a bill that he had no idea what's in the bill. that's called the resistance. that's a terrible word. think of it. their theme is resist. their theme should be, "let's get together, envelop, get together." but their theme is "resist." it's obstruction. and the problem is they've become obstructionists, and the voters happen to like it -- i happened to like it from the standpoint of running for office but i think it's a terrible thing in terms of getting elected, and obstruction, that's not what they want. pete: how do you overcome something like that people like
senator warren literally saying people are going to die because of president trump's health care bill? >> well, i actually think he's a hopeless case. i call her pocahontas, and that's an insult to pocahontas. i actually think that she is just somebody that's got a lot of hatred, a lot of anger. pete: he's got a loud microphon. >> she does, but i don't think she has the kind of support that some people do. i think she hurt hillary. i watched her campaigning for hillary, and she was so angry. hillary would be sitting back listening to her, trying to smile, but there were a lot of people in that audience that were going, "wow. is this what we want?" there's a lot of anger there and hostility. so, no, i think she's a highly overrated vo.ce pete: some people might say the level of anger is unprecedented but it's also unprecedented for a former president to come out the way president obama has. he came out on facebook recently you may have seen it. he said your bill, mr. president not a health care bill, it's a massive transfer of wealth, it's going to harm americans, it's mean -- >> he actually used my term,
"mean." that was my term. because i want to see -- and i speak from the heart. that's what i want to see. i want to see a bill with heart. health care's a very complicated subject from the point is that you move it this way and this group doesn't like it. you move it a little bit over here, you have a very narrow path. and honestly, nobody can be totally happy, even without the votes. forget about votes. this has nothing to do with votes. this has to do with picking a plan that everybody's going to like. i'd like to say "love," but "like." . we have a very good plan. we have a few people that are i think you could say modestly, they're not standing on the rooftops and screaming. they want to get some points, i think they'll get some points. pete: a are republican senators doing enough to help that bill get through? >> i think so. i have great relationships with most of the people in the senate as you know, most of the people in the house. i think i really -- i worked very hard, i made a lot of great friendships with the people in the house, a lot of them, same
thing in the senate. they're four very good people, friends of mine. and i don't think they're that far off. i don't think they're that far off. you know, famous last words, right? but i think we're going to get there. for years i've been watching the battle of health care, and i watched during the clinton administration hillary, rightfully, devoted her life to trying to get health care. she was unable to get it. you watched what happened with obamacare, which, by the way, they finish with it, it was, you know, something that doesn't work. but look what happened with nebraska, where they gave the great nebraska give away in order to give a vote. pete: cornhusker kick back. >> it was a very closed session, you know, they talk about closed and behind closed doors. there was nothing more closed than obamacare. but the bottom line is they worked so long and so hard, they get a plan that didn't work, they got a health care plan that didn't work. and i've only been there for five months. you know, they worked for a long time. during the clinton administration, they worked essentially during the entire
administration. health care is a very, very tough thing to get. but i think we're going to get it. we don't have too much of a choice, because the alternative is the dead carcass of obamacare obamacare. that's what it is. pete: i opened up the failing new york times and the washington post this morning, no mention at all of this bill that you're signing today. for veterans who are so passionate about this, it's such a historic bill. are they going to cover this, and if they don't, why don't they cover it the way they cover every breathless scandal in the media today? >> well, i just heard today for the first time that obama knew about russia a long time before the election, and he did nothing about it. but nobody wants to talk about that. the cia gave him information on russia a long time before they even -- you know, before the election. and i hardly see it. it's an amazing thing, to me, you know, -- in other words, the question is if he had the information, why didn't he doesn't something about it? he should have done something about it, but you don't read
that. it's quite sad. pete: that never leaked. >> that doesn't leak out, no. they're very selective leaks with sources. i always love the sources, many of which don't exist. but, no, there is a thing going on in the country, and hopefully it's somewhat of a sickness in that sense. but, you know what? i am so proud of what we've done in such a short period of time.
clayton: how's the newspapers? pete: as that was going on i was listening and reading my failing new york times this morning. not a single art in the main section about the historic v.a. bill the president signed. that's the last question i asked is will it get covered. and it answered itself. of course they didn't. more of what they want to talk about. abby: i think it highlights the disconnect between the way the mainstream media is covering things and what's really going on, and he pointed to that directly. i mean, he sounded a lot more optimistic about getting things done or hope that they can. with the health care, for example, he's saying, you know, the republicans aren't that far apart, but if you watch the mainstream media or you read the new york times, you know, you
got these five senators that still haven't gotten to a "yes" vote, shrikes it's a total disaster but that's not the reality of it. clayton: these five senators may be moved in a different direction. democrats totally not on board. if you read the media coverage of this the reason they're standing by and off the fight on this is medicaid. that's number one on their list, medicaid and what they perceive as major cuts to medicaid and would be "tax cuts for the rich rich." the democrats are not going to come to the table at all on thi. pete: and the rhetoric will only get more nasty as the impugn the motives of the republicans, when what they're doing on medicaid is helping a program that can't pay for itself. doesn't go into effect until 2021. they need to show that it can work for the poor and the sick. democrats say, you want to kick them off their health care. no, we don't. we think there's a better way to do it so the health care market doesn't collapse. make that argument and i think you can win and bring over the republicans. they're not that far off.
clayton: it's a hard number, though, speedy with the cbo nobodies and if the cbo numbers show millions are going to lose their health care coverage, it's going to be hard for them to go back to their districts which they have to do this summer and face those individuals which they had to face the last time this bill came up. abby: president trump pointed out that health care is probably the most complicated thing we're going to deal with as a nation, and we're seeing that with getting these votes together. it is complicated because everyone wants different things in it. something else that stuck out in this interview -- and it was a great interview, pete -- was just how frustrated he was, someone who comes to washington, d.c, as a businessman, understands politics but has never really worked inside dc just how hard it is to bring both parties to the table to actually have a real conversation about getting anything done. pete: like the v.a. legislation, the idea i can't fire somebody who's incompetent or not doing their job, i have to sign legislation in order to fire people who aren't doing their job and taking taxpayer dollars and not helping veterans? do you think this will trickle into other parts of government? pete: i think it could. you raise that point, it's a
great one. maybe other departments will realize if we can fire bad employees, a major government civil service reform that could happen. being in the roosevelt room and a little bit in the oval office this fury that everyone says he's involved in, "russia collusion, investigation," he's unfazed and also very confident that he can make this deal. he may not be a politician but he's a deal maker and that's what people sent him to washington to do. clayton: i'll ask you -- how about this -- 'cause i'm not allowed to ask you because we're out of time, 'cause they'll yell at me. i'll ask you later if you see a difference now between -- abby: we'll give you the answer coming up. clayton: former attorney general loretta lynch is now the focus of a senate investigation, j. christian adams on the questions the american people need answered next. pete: and it turns out peddling fake news is not a successful business strategy. this morning sad news for the failing new york times. stick around.

pete: is the president right to be making this about the other collusion, the collusion of the democratic genser president trump or bernie sanders? >> yeah, how quickly we forget 2016 where you had justice department officials like peter kazik letting john podesta know what they were going to do ahead of time in the hillary clinton investigation. i mean, look, this whole notion of collusion was the hottest story in october 2016, but it was the democrats who were doing it. but how quickly we forget. clayton: so democrats say, looking, there's nothing as to to his here, j. christian adams, look away, nothing to see here. yes, she may have encouraged james comey to change the way we call this investigation, call it a "matter" but that's not a big deal, there's nothing illegal here, let's move on with our lives. what do you say to that? >> that's exactly what's going to happen. anybody who thinks that the senate or even the inspector general report at justice is going to come out shortly is going to change the story is dreaming. i mean, the job of the inspector
general is to defend the justice department. it's not going to have anything to build a senate investigation on. but yet we know that the lawyers at justice were telling comey that you couldn't prosecute hillary because they were putting words in the statute that didn't exist. remember? that they said, "well, you have to show that she intended to harm national security." but that's not in the law. she just -- if you have classified information that you're mishandling that violates the law. this story is from 2016. anybody who thinks this is going to change the trajectory of the the democrats in the new york times, i repeat myself, is dreaming. >> it pertains to that investigation though. what are they going to ask her? what are they specifically looking for if they want to prove that there was some sort of collusion or an attempt to change -- she called it a "matter" instead of an "investigation"? >> you have to remember, a lot of people think in these black hive white terms, "yes," "no," collusion, not collusion. things are much more subtle in
washington, d.c. you know, when you meet on the tarmac with the president, you don't have to say anything, you don't have to say "give my wife a break." it speaks for itself. washington is far more sophisticated than doing stupid things like overtly colluding. so that's why the senate is not going to be able to get to anything because these people are able to collude without actually colluding. pete: it's an interesting point the code speak that goes on, the president, i hope with mike feline, come on, the guy's a good guy, it's not actual obstruction, it's being honest like you would to somebody else, but you're saying the code-speak is something you have to find a way to decipher? >> yeah, democrats in washington play three-dimensional chess while people out in the rest of the country attacking them are still trying to learn how to play checkers. look at what's going on at the justice department now. the democrats are essentially still running the place because they are still embedded everywhere throughout the department. clayton: j. christian adams
making the star trek three-dimensional chess reference. pete: bill clinton back to making big speeches. this time making the case for a big beautiful wall. clayton: plus democrats call the new health care bill barbaric, immoral, and people will die. do they risk inciting for violence? the panel will be here to discuss. ily. i love that i can pass the membership to my children. we're the williams family, and we're usaa members for life. ♪ ♪you are loved ♪ i feel it every day. but at night, it's the last thing on my mind. for 10 years my tempur-pedic has adapted to my weight and shape, relieving pressure points from head to toe.

abby: ooh. but do democrats their latest attacks on health care risk inciting further genius in here are morgan ortega and jayne zeno zeno. ladies, thank you for being here here. morgan, we'll start with you. you've been in politics a very long time. what do you make the most recent rhetoric coming from the left? >> it's actually quite disturbing, i have to say. i was thinking about it today. if you're a child in the fourth grade and you're watching the nightly news, you're seeing cath crivi -- griffin hold the president's severed head, someone shooting people at a baseball practice, and the democrat part telling the whole united states that republicans want people to die. this is irresponsible. it's beyond the pale. as someone who's a lifelong republican but i've also served my country in the military reserves and i've done two civilian tours overseas, this is disgusting and it's dishonorable to say this about each other.
it's gotta stop, abby. abby: jeannie, though, you look at the messaging war who is winning that and you you have these democratic leaders, many of them tweeting out the fact that republicans hate the poor, you know, they hate certain sects of the population, and a lot of people believe that because they don't actually read what is inside that bill. >> i would say very few people have read the bill including some of our senators as well. who's winning the war? it's obviously the democrats in the same way in 2009, 2010, and the last seven years republicans having winning this war of the rhetoric. and i point you to a piece in red state in early january where they pointed out republicans have to get a message that works works. it's simply not enough when you're talking about something as personal to people as health care to talk about free government, to talk about lowering taxes. you have to talk about things that matter to people. you have to tell stories. democrats have been doing that. republicans haven't. and they're winning the rhetoric war. but of course the irony here is just what you said at the top in terms of the koch brothers,
conservatives don't like this piece of legislation, and let's be clear on that. democrats are in this overheated rhetoric because, of course, they don't want it to move any further to the right, and the conservatives are the ones who don't like this bill because as rand paul and others have said, this is really obamacare light. and democrats should actually be happy this is the watered-down version they're getting out of the republican -- abby: morgan, how do the republicans win this war when it comes to communicating with the american people? because we've all heard stories from people that have really suffered from obamacare. there obviously needs to be a change, even democrats admit that, but how do republicans win this war of being attic communicate it with the american people to say we don't want people to die, we actually want health care to be better and more affordable for you. >> i think, first of all, as republicans and democrats, independents, we need to stop referring to being at war with each other. we're all american citizens and getting a piece of legislation through should not be going on war with each other. maybe i'm sounding a little pollyanna this morning, but i was listening to governor huckabee who was with you
yesterday, abby, and he said republicans don't design a piece of legislation and neither do democrats because they want people to die. it's silly. we're not in war with each other other. we have ideological differences about how we want to make this country better and the leaders of the democrat party need to stand up and criticize hillary clinton, criticize johnny depp and all the people that are calling for the death of our president and saying that a major political party which represents half of america wants people to die. it's gone way too far. i find it truly disgusting, abb. abby: quickly last word here, jeannie. the shooting of steve scalise you'd hope the rhetoric has gone down. >> let's be clear. it was ben carson who talked about about this as the worst thing since slavery. it was mitch mcconnell who said it was the worst piece of legislation in 50 years. republicans started this war on rhetoric seven years ago and for them now to claim that, you know we should all just be working together is -- >> no one talks about killing
obama. no one talks about killing the president the way -- >> the most dangerous piece of legislation in american history. >> they are talking about killing the president right .ow abby: ladies, i think -- >> -- the three of us can agree wherever it needs to stop, it's coming from the democratic side and we all need to move on. we're all americans at the end of the day. morgan, jeannie, thanks for being with us this morning. final president trump telling bad v.a. employees that you are fired. >> they were hanging around, receiving money, they weren't taking care of our veterans, and i made the promise we're going to be taking care of of orients if i win. abby: the president sitting down with pete in an exclusive interview to talk about the historic piece of legislation that he just signed and what it means for our nation's heroes. and the top choice for your summer trip to the beach. you do not want to miss that. that's next. ♪ cheeseburger in paradise ♪ heaven on earth new bike?

so we had it pass, tom cotton, so many other people were so involved that mr. rewe who you know very well, they worked so hard and so long on that and that was a tough one to get through, so now they do have accountability. pete: why would a bill that makes common sense to so many americans, why would it be so hard to get through? >> it was a very difficult fight fight. you have many forces, and i'm not saying bad forces. the unions. the unions don't want to see something like that where you can fire someone right away, you know, if they're not doing the job. it's called accountability. but you had a lot of forces, as you can imagine, and you know the forces probably better than anyone. you are one of the reasons that i really felt -- i used to watch you on fox talking about the veterans with such heart. and, you know, you were one of the factors, i will tell you, then we started speaking about it. we've done a lot for the veterans. but you did have a lot of forces against this bill. this was not an easy one. pete: absolutely. when you rode down that escalator in trump tower, it was
the first time a presidential candidate had made veterans issues a topic. you mentioned it multiple times in that speech. obviously you've been involved in veterans' issues for years. where did that passion first come from? >> i've always very late the veterans we weren't given a fair shake. they fight wars, they lose limbs they lose lives, they've gone through so much, and i always felt they were never appreciated the way they should be appreciated. you know who appreciates is the voters, and i'm not just talking about them as a bloc, which is a big bloc, but i'm talking about it is voters outside of the veterans, they appreciate what the veterans have done but i've always felt they were not given a fair shake. then you read the disaster stories of course where people are waiting in line for seven, eight, nine days to see a doctor and worse, where they have a disease or a problem or a form of cancer that's easily and quickly curable and have to wait six, seven, eight months, and by the time they get in it's
terminal. you know, the things that go on are just incredible and have gone on. and we have dr. david schulkin who's done a phenomenal job, he's got tremendous compassion but he's also a tough cookie, and we're getting it done and we're doing whatever is necessary. this is one bill, but we have many and many coming and the veterans i think when you look at that in the not-too-distant future it's going to be a much different pl.ce pete: mr. president, thank you for your time and on behalf of america's veterans thank you for your commitment and following through on it. it's truly a historic day. >> thank you. abby: this is what he has been fighting for from the moment he got in to run for president. you have to give him credit for following through with that and you as well, pete, for being so compassionate about veterans affairs and speaking out about it on television which clearly made a difference. pete: a lot of people shared in that victory. it's a first step. it's not going to solve the va but a lot of people over a lot of years put in a lot of time and all you want is a champion in the oval office who you know will ultimately put it first and that's what happened yesterday and i think we've got an opportunity for a new day at the v.a. he also talked about choice when
we were off camera, he wants to give a veteran a choice to either go to a v.a. or private provider, he's very committed to that and believes that will be the next phase. clayton: it is amazing you couldn't fire people who were incompetent head of of t.me abby: no one better to fire than "you're fired," the man behind it all. other headlines this morning. a pro-hillary clinton group appears to be behind the anti- anti-trump dossier. the norris post reports that the washington firm that commissioned the dossier may be an opposition research group for the democrats. the paper says that fusion gps was on the payroll of an unidentified clinton ally when it higher a retired british spy to dig up dirt on president trump. well, the man behind that report seen here, the new york times columnist paul sperry is going to join us next hour. you don't want to miss that. and julian assange, pete's favorite person, says the democratic party is doomed, slams the left, saying quote " "consumed by hysteria about russia and calling their obsession a political dead end. he goes on to say "without
collusion, we are left with the democratic establishment blaming the public for not lying the truth about what hillary clinton said to goldman sachs and blaming their own base for not lying what they said in their own emails but fixing the dnc primaries." also this, the navy showing off its new super carrier. the uss abraham lincoln pulling off high speed hairpin turns in the atlantic ocean. take a look at that. this is all while they're doing the drills. the 100,000 ton carrier can move at nearly 35 miles an hour and carry 6,000 sailors on that trip trip. the drills are part of ship's $4 billion makeover. it's beautiful. good. pete: high speed turns with something like that. it is a beautiful -- makes you want to sing the national anthem anthem. abby: makes you feel proud. speaking of proud and enjoying the summer, on the trampoline? >> i'm not on the trampoline, the kids kicked me off. kids are pushing me around out here. when you take the kids to the beach they do push you around. it's good to have some toys to keep them occupied otherwise they're going to say "i want to go inside.

nothing more divisive, more -- every term in the book when it comes to picking a supreme court court. i've gone out into these diners and talked to voters but why they voted for president trump i would say more than any other reason it is because of the supreme court, the fact that you may have someone else retiring you have a republican in charge to pick some.ne pete: kennedy's long been the swing vote and it's known generally he wanted to retire under a republican, he's 80 years old, so it's the last day under the supreme court session so it all makes sense. can you mage where it would go if the fifth seat is in sway in kennedy has been the vote between traditionalists and progressives. this would be the fight of the ages. a lot of outlets stoking that. clayton: may i quote some of that? this is ruth marcus writing an opinion piece in the washington post. she said this to say. she calls it "the terrifying and terrible prospect of justice kennedy retiring." she says "if kennedy is inclined
to retire it's hard to begrudge him that choice, but his departure would be terrible for the court, terrible for the country and it cannot come at a worse time. pete:. clayton: clayton, is she a liberal? clayton: yes. abby: we were talking about roe v. wade and how passionate people are about women's rights on both sides of this issue, and if you have someone new coming in, anything could happen. pete: if you voted for president trump you voted in part because of the list of supreme court justices he might nominate, he'd likely stick to that list, which would mean it would be like a gorsuch or alito or a roberts or a thomas, that fifth vote could have a huge impact on the landscape of the country. abby: the senate and the house, who knows how long that will stay, but for the time being that would have been helpful. pete: rumor worth following today. abby: keep a close eye on this. pete: coming up, more of my exclusive sit down interview with president trump. will health care get passed? how will he handle resistance

us are in the new studio x a big interview you brought this morning, an exclusive sit-down with president trump. pete: it was certainly an honor, talking about news of the day. we were there formally because he signed a historic v.a. reform bill. he signed that in the east room, veterans were there. it was a huge, huge moment. then we came back to the roosevelt room and had a chance to ask him about what's happening with health care, how likely is it a bill gets passed, a very candid president sat down with "fox & friends." take a listen. mr. president, thank you very much for joining us. >> thank you, pete. thank you. pete: you faced resistance on this bill, but you've faced resistance on the entirety of your agenda. who's been your biggest opponent? democrats resisting, fake media, when you think about it, what holds it up? >> well, you know, when i ran, i talked about the rigged system that i saw i was winning states and i wasn't getting the delegates i should be getting. and i would look at this, i would say what kind of a system.
well, the whole system is there- there's a lot of bad things going on. one of the things that should be solved is that the republicans and democrats don't get together. and i'm open arms, but i don't see that happening. they fight each other, they, the level of hostility -- and, by the way, this isn't just trump. this has been leak this for years. it's been like that for a long time. but the level of hostility, as an example, the health care bill that you are reporting on and everybody's reporting on. it would be so great if the democrats and republicans could get together, wrap their arms around it and come up with something that everybody's happy with. it's so easy. but we won't get one democrat vote. not one. and if it were the greatest bill ever proposed in mankind, we wouldn't get a vote. and that's a terrible thing. so there is -- well, look, their theme is resist. i've never heard of anything
like this, resist. pete: how frustrating is it to have former president obama out there leading the resistance? >> well, i think -- i don't think he's leading it. he actually just put out a small statement. other people are leading. don't forget, i saw schumer criticizing the bill a couple of weeks ago, and he had no idea what was in the bill. he was saying this bill is this and it's that. he had no idea. in fact, the republican senators didn't know because it wasn't released of very few people knew. so he was criticizing a bill that he had no idea what was in the bill. but that's called the resistance. i mean, that's a terrible word. think of it. their theme is resist. their theme should be let's get together, envelope. let's get together. but their theme is resist. it's obstruction. and the problem is they've become obstructionists, and the voters -- i happen to like it from the standpoint of running for office, but i think it's a terrible theme in terms of getting elected. and more importantly, i think
it's a terrible theme for the people of this country, resist, obstruction. that's not what they want. pete: how do you overcome that when somebody like senator elizabeth warren literally says people are going to die because of president trump's health care bill? >> i call her pocahontas, and that's an insult to pocahontas. i think she is somebody that's got a lot of hatred, a lot of anger -- pete: she's got a loud microphone. >> she does, but i don't think she has the kind of support that some people do. i watched her campaigning for hillary, and she was so angry. hillary would be sitting back listening to her, trying to smile. but there were a lot of people in that audience that were going, wow, is this what we want? there's a lot of anger there and hostility. so, no, i think, i think she's a highly overrated voice. pete: some people might say the lever of anger is unprecedented, but it's also unprecedented for a former president to come out the way president obama has. he came out on facebook
recently, he said your bill, mr. president, not a health care bill, it's a massive transfer of wealth. ing it's going to harm americans. it's mean -- >> well, he actually used my term, mean. that was my term. because i want to see, i want to see -- and i speak from the heart. that's what i want to see. i want to see a bill with heart. health care's a very complicated subject from the standpoint that you move it this way, and this group doesn't like it. you move it a little bit over, you have a very narrow path. and honestly, nobody can be totally happy even without the votes. forget about votes. this has nothing to do with votes. this has to do with picking a plan that everybody's going to like. i'd like to say love, but like. but we have a very good plan. we have a few people that are, i think you could say modestly, their not standing -- they're not standing on the rooftops and screaming. they want to get some points -- pete: are republican senators doing enough to have your back to get that health care bill through? >> i think so.
i have great relationships with most of the people in the senate, as you know, most of the people in the house. i've made a lot of great friendships with the people in the house, a lot of them. same thing in the senate. there are four very good people, they're friends of mine. and i don't think they're that far off. i don't think they're that far off. you know, famous last words, right? but i think we're going to get there. for years i've been watching the battle of health care, and i watched during the clinton administration hillary, rightfully, devoted her life to trying to get health care. she was unable to get it. you watched what happened with obamacare which, by the time they finished with it, it was, you know, something that doesn't work. but look what happened with nebraska where they gave the great nebraska giveaway in order to get a vote. pete: cornhusker kickback. >> it was a closed session. there was nothing more closed than obamacare. but the bottom line is they worked so long and so hard, they got a plan that didn't work. they got a health care plan that
didn't work, and i've only been there for five months. you know, they worked for a long time. during the clinton administration they worked, essentially, during the entire administration. health care is a very, very tough thing to get. but i think we're going to get it. we don't have too much of a choice because the alternative is the dead carcass of obamacare. that's what it is. pete: i opened up the failing new york times and "the washington post" this morning, no mention at all of this bill that you're signing today. for veterans who are so passionate about this, it's such a historic bill. are they going to cover this? and if they don't, why don't they cover the it the way they cover every breathless scandal? >> quell, i just heard -- well, i just heard for the first time today that obama knew about russia for a long time before the election, that the cia gave him information on russia a long time before they even, you know, before the election. and i hardly see it.
it's an amazing thing. to me, you know -- in other words, the question is, if he had the information, why didn't he do something about it? be he should have done something about it. but you don't read that. it's quite sad. pete: that never leaked out. >> no, that doesn't leak out. they're very selective leaks. with sources, i always love the sources, many of which don't exist. but, no, there is a, there is a thing going on in the country and, hopefully, it's somewhat of a sickness in that sense. but you know what? i am so proud of what we've done in such a short period of time. pete: so it was an honor to sit down with him, very candid. big week coming up with republicans in the senate trying to get this health care repeal and replace bill passed. and i'll tell you, the p mainstream media may think he's engulfed in scammed call the, this is a guy who's -- scandal, this is a guy who's focused. he sees the five republicans as very much an opportunity to bring them onboard. clayton: there are some sticking points and, of course, democrats who aren't coming to the table at all.
there's five key sticking points, the cuts to medicaid which democrats have been saying are tax cuts for the rich. eliminating the individual mandate, of course. making it easier for states to cut health benefits -- pete: to make choices. clayton: right. and fifth would be getting rid of the lifetime cap. they're not easy to be resolved, but we're going to see this fight comet. abby: but he was very realistic. he said i understand not everyone is going to get what they want, but republicans, he said, are much closer than it's being described in the media. he also talked about the democrats about how they're not even willing, not one, to even have a conversation. we've heard from democrats recognizing that obamacare needs changes. that is an obvious one. but the fact that we can't even come to the table and have a conversation, that was the takeaway for me, was how surprised he seemed that in washington you can't even get people to talk. pete: not only are they not coming to the table, but they're saying you're going to die because of this republican health care bill, and republicans should fight back
and say, hey, listen, this is gradual, it's responsible. whatever happens to medicaid isn't going to happen immediately, states are going to get a chance to choose. we can make sure competitive insurance markets deliver, because we care about the poor and the sick. we're trying to preserve medicaid because it's going to go bankrupt, and if we don't make some smart, prudent choices now that we believe will expand access to health care and make it viable and cheaper, that's the argument they could make. win it on the merits, because the media's never going to be with you -- clayton: it's easier to vilify, and that's what they're doing. i want to ask you this, you were at the white house months ago, and it's interesting now we had -- there was all that talk about chaos inside the white house, right? it was just -- everyone was getting fired, it was just total discord. then he goes to the middle east, comes back, you go to the white house, do you get any sense of that? abby: that things were different? pete: yeah. i see the opposite of chaos. i see a president who's very confident in what he's done so far. maybe frustrated it doesn't get reported the way it should, but
the staff saying we're going to keep our shoulders to the plow. we face unprecedented resistance, but we're undeterred. we're going to sign this v.a. bill, no one's going to cover it. we're going to fight on the hill. the moment they announced the health care bill, the mainstream media went nuts. it's only four or opposed, now five. that's a good scenario when you think about where we've been. and look at the house bill, the house repeal bill didn't can immediately pass. they went back and got a deal. what they've done in five months compared to what president obama and others did in years is really impressive. if anything, they're frustrated that word doesn't get out, but i think they're just building to the momentum they have. abby: and those were two of the things he campaigned on, repealing obamacare, fixing the health care system, but also an issue you're so passionate about is the v.a. i loved when he said, look, i liked politics when i run for office, i love the back and forth and the competition. but when you are commander in chief, when you are running a
country, politics isn't so good, and you need people to kind of put that aside. really a message to democrats, like, we need you. they're not going to get one single vote from the democrats. pete: right. he's willing to reach out, but very clear-eyed. abby: good interview. clayton: all right. still ahead, bernie sanders and his wife now lawyering up. they could be in trouble with the fbi. but will their fans in the media bother even covering it? abby: plus, the doj back in texas in their sanctuary city crackdown. the tate's attorney general is live -- the state's attorney general is live right here next. ♪ ♪

thing you are? just getting that support? >> well, i do think that -- yeah. i think this is a step in the right direction. i think it sets a tone that the trump administration will stand behind states that are doing the right things. in this case, this is a law that our legislature passed just recently. it's something that was, obviously, passed by the duly elected representatives of our state. it's also something that the supreme court has to p pined on in the past. so given the fact that this came up in arizona and we got the right result, we're very confident this will result in the same resolution. clayton: you're getting pushback, to of course. texas democratic lawmakers have written this about the senate bill number 4, s.b. 4 has several flawed provisions, they say, that unlawfully target immigrant communities, expose texans to unlawful violations of due process and erode essential trust between police and the public. what about those three points? >> is so none of that's true. this is a law similar to what arizona passed.
arizona actually required that that law enforcement ask about immigration status. texas did not do that. all we're saying is that if you're a law enforcement official and there's an arrest or a lawful detention, which means that there's reasonable suspicion of a state crime, then law enforcement may ask about immigration status. so there's no requirement here. it's totally up to each law enforcement officer. abby: what are your constituents where you are, what are they saying about this bill? do they support it? do they feel like it's the right step forward? >> you know what? i'd say overall, yes. overwhelmingly supported in the legislature, i think overwhelmingly supported in texas. especially if people understand what the law does. there's a lot of misinformation that the media has put out about law, you know, saying it's going to effect witnesses coming in to testify, and that's just not true. there's actually an exclusion for victims of crime and witnesses who need to testify. they cannot be asked about immigration status. so there's some misinformation about the law. but when people understand what's in the bill, pretty much
it's overwhelmingly supported in texas. clayton: what about from the sanctuary cities themselves? what pushback are you getting? >> well, obviously, they sued us -- [laughter] so that is a pushback. however, that was not surprising to us. that's the reason we went into court before them and asked for a court to say, basically, that our law was constitutional prior to getting these lawsuits from cities around the state that are already participating as sanctuary cities. abby: all right, ken paxton, good to have you with us. >> hey, thank you. have a great day. clayton: still ahead, bill clinton is back the giving big speeches, but this time he's making the case for a big, beautiful wall, really? abby: and remember that anti-trump dossier? turns out the whole thing may have been funded by hillary clinton supporters. the man behind that story, new york post columnist charles berry joining us next. clayton: i love the word "dossier." ♪ ♪ sarah is a fifth-grade teacher.

that -- to catch her. thankfully, she's expected to be okay. six flags has closed the ride while it investigates. clayton: i love the sky ride, it's calming. abby: that doesn't look so calming. clayton: no, it doesn't! abby: yikes. new calls for a special counsel to investigate president obama's juris disdepartment -- justice department for potential obstruction of justice and loretta lynch's handling of the hillary clinton e-mail situation. clayton: joining us is paul sperry. welcome back to the show. >> good morning. clayton: all right, so walk us through this. you believe this is about to heat up, and we should be paying more attention to this than the russia probe. why do you think this is about to get a whole lot hotter? >> yeah. so these are some major developments, and they do not bode well for democrats. not only is the senate now investigating officially the obama administration for obstruction of justice, but they're also investigating the origins of this discredited
dossier that democrats used to launch their witch hunt against trump on russia, and it could backfire on them now if this really heats up like you say with subpoenas, hearings and also possibly a criminal investigation down the road. abby: and why don't you think we've had more coverage in the main stream media? you would think they would be at least covering this ate will bit -- this a little bit. we've covered the stats over the past two days, there's been basically zero coverage of this. you helped break this story. you're saying it's a big deal. why is the media not taking it as seriously? >> well, because they're part of the witch hunt. and, you know, a lot of them are democrat mouthpieces, so that's how it goes. but investigators, you know, they want to know how this dossier that's been debunked, how it, you know, how it came to be, how the sausage was made and who funded it exactly. they know that democrat, democrats allied with the clinton campaign, hillary clinton campaign, financed it,
but they don't know exactly who. and they also want to know why in the world did the fbi rely on this bad intelligence. they knew it was bad intelligence, and, you know, designed to smear trump, but yet they relied on it the investigate trump. so another thing that's more important is they're going to try and find out if the fbi collaborated with this democrat research group, fusion gps -- clayton: tell us about that research group, because that's important. they have ties to trump. sorry, paul. they have ties to the democratic party. why is that research group important to this whole story? >> yeah. before i get there, if they did, if the fbi did collaborate with this group, because we know that they did try to contract with the author of the dossier for $50,000, if they collaborated with this group, this fusion gps, then it really raises serious questions about the independence of the fbi in
investigating trump. now, this group, gps, fusion gps, founded by these former journalists, i'm told that they are actually political activists. they had a vendetta against trump, and some of them actually financially supported hillary's campaign for president. so this was a democrat operation from top to bottom. pete: and how much of this investigation actually hinged on that dossier? remind people, how significant was it? >> oh, i mean, this whole russiagate scandal is predicated on this dossier. abby: wow. >> the cia put credence into it, gave it to the white house, attached it to a presidential briefing for obama. of course, the fbi has used it. congress, of course, is using it to cook up these scoops -- or these charges against trump. the media is using it to find scoops on trump in this
investigation. so it's really been wended its way through the entire process, and it's really remarkable because the thing is completely riddled with errors in fact and questionable sourcing and debunked allegations. it's really a gossip sheet. abby: even congress has been trying to find more information about this group with possible ties to the dossier as you've been talking about, but it has been stalled. so is where does this go? >> yeah. yeah. is so now they can't get answers out of fusion gps, quite frankly, can't get answers occupant of the fbi as well -- out of the fbi because they have similar requests for documentation from them. so now the senate judiciary's actually threatening subpoenas against fusion gps to try and get answers. and, you know, we've got to get answers here. we've got to get to the bottom of this because it's really, when you combine with loretta lynch and allegations against her of obstruction of justice in the hillary investigation, this
whole thing is really starting to smell rotten. pete: absolutely. thank you very much. we appreciate your time this morning. >> thank you. my pleasure. pete: all right. for many in the media, it was their favorite time of day, hurling gotcha questions at sean spicer just to try to make him squirm with. well, now there's a new rule in the briefing room. they can still ask questions, but they have to point their camera at the wall. how are these journalists adjusting to that change? jeff mason, the head of the white house correspondents' association, joins us ahead. clayton: and president trump thinks republicans will come together and get a health care deal done before july 4th. >> we have a very good plan. we have a few people that are, i think you could say modestly -- they're not standing on the rooftops and screaming. clayton: we caught up with maria bartiromo on the beach in aruba -- laugh. abby: look at her, loving life. clayton: will we get health care done? she's actually on sixth avenue on the plaza.
they want to get some points. i think they'll get some points. pete: are republican senators doing enough to have your back to get that health care bill through? >> i think so. you know, i have great relationships with most of the people in the senate, with, as you know, most of the people in the house. i think i really i worked very hard, i've made a lot of great friendships with a lot of great people in the house, same thing in the senate. they're four very good people, they're friends of mine. and i don't think they're that far off. i don't think they're that far off. you know, famous last words, right? but i think we're going to get there. can't promise. i think we're going to get there. clayton: all right. we're joined now by maria bartiromo, the host of "sunday morning futures," whose show starts in about 25 minutes. you're going to be talking about health care. i want to get your take on this health care. will we see a rollback of obamacare? what's your sense of how this is going to go? >> right now you've got now five senators pushing back, basically trying to push back on the expansion of medicaid. so i think the next couple of days are going to be the deal making, you know, really trying to negotiate how they can roll
it back to make it less expensive, obviously, smaller government. but this is basically where the chips are lying in terms of who's for the current bill in the senate and who's pushing back. there you have the five senators right now, because they just feel it's, once again, very similar to what obamacare has been and that is big government. i think that the senate and the house understand the implications here, that they need to get something done before the july 4th holiday. if they don't, the calls to not go on vacation in august are going to get louder. so i do think we're going to see something this week. abby: also they know they're not going to get any democratic votes. >> none. abby: and president trump was more optimistic saying these republicans are closer than you realize when it comes to finding the right bill. so maybe the more moderate ones realize they have to give in a little bit, too, because they need those votes. >> factically. and i think -- exactly. and i think overall the goal of the president's critics are to impeach him. it's not about just the travel ban, obama care, tax reform, they don't want any of his
agenda to move forward so that they can take over the house in 2018 and move to impeach even if there's nothing illegal at all that the president has done. that's what their goal is. and i think the senate and the house know that, and they're going to do everything they can -- pete: so they're going to be working on policy, trying to find the 51 votes that they need. >> that's right. pete: how do they fight back against the way democrats frame this? we've got sound of democrats who talk about this bill like it's armageddon. take a listen. >> plain and simple, this so-called health care bill is nothing more than a massive transfer of wealth from working families to the very, very rich. this is a barbaric and immoral piece of legislation -- >> it's kind of like a death part two. it still puts 23 million people out of health care, it destroys medicaid which is for the disabled, seniors, poor and pregnant mothers.
it is a cruel bill. it's a deceptive, awful bill that shouldn't be called a health care bill. it's an entitlement for the rich and a political scam. be. pete: barbarism and death. >> which, of course, we know is not true at all. the issue that the republicans have though is the messaging. this is about people's health care, and they need to communicate really who's getting impacted and talk about people's health care. the messaging has been poor to just okay on the republican side. they have policies that will certainly move the needle in terms of economic growth, but they don't, they don't communicate it well. and the dems get on the same page, they get on the same page. it's death. people will die. barbaric. they all get on the same page, and that basically -- you heard chuck schumer the other day. he hadn't even seen the bill. the president told you the same thing. he hadn't even seen the bill, and he came out and said this is a horrible bill. so, i mean, even before looking at it, the contents of it, they're saying what they think because that is the narrative they want to get out.
clayton: you have senator jerry moran discussing the health care bill, that's coming up on your show. you're also going to be speaking with former attorney general alberto gonzalez about this loretta lynch scandal. >> absolutely. now there are investigations around loretta lynch. why did she call jim comey to call it a matter instead of an investigation, and importantly, why did jim comey do it? he did it. so there's obstruction right there. he called it a matter instead of an investigation. so i'm going to talk about that with the former attorney general. abby: a lot of serious questions. look forward to it, maria. >> thanks, guys. clayton: the white house experimenting with new rules for the press corps like, hey, if you want to ask questions, you can, but you've got to point your camera at the wall. this is the only known video of friday's briefing. jeff mason, president of the white house correspondents' association, says it's wrong, and he's here to respond next. abby: and we're going to help you turn your backyard party into the ultimate beach bash including the more item of the season.

briefings are held? clayton: the president of the white house correspondents' association president, jeff mason, joins us now. nice to see you this morning. >> nice to see you. clayton: on thursday you offered up concerns, they're asking television stations to point their cameras at the wall off camera. what did you tell them? >> well, i told them that we are eager to have regular televised briefings back. it's important not only for our members which include people from television and radio who really need those visuals to be able to tell their stories and have their stories air, but it's also in the interest of transparency and in the interest of democracy and in the values that we believe are covered by the first amendment. so we had a really good conversation about that. and i'm hopeful that in the coming weeks that we'll be able to the make progress. pete: jeff, if the goal is information, why does it matter whether it's televised or audio? you know, reporters make names for themselves by grandstanding in these briefings.
if you're still getting the information, why does it matter whether the camera's pointed forward? >> well, i think that's a good question, and i think that's an issue the white house has also raised. look, we have reporters as you know in the white house press corps who work for print organizations like i do, but we also have reporters who work for broadcasters and cable outlets. and in addition to getting that information, factual information and news that they can report from their own mouths or in their own stories, they like to be able to show it on tv the -- pete: jeff, we play audio all the time. >> right. and one of the problems is in some of these briefings, they haven't allowed audio at a all. pete: we also read full screens of quotes from the press corps as well. if people are getting the information, i don't pulley understand why the president -- fully understand why the president and the white house doesn't have the prerogative to push back. >> well, i'm sure some other people who work for fox would disagree with that, because i can tell you i'm representing your network as well as many others when i speak to sean and sarah in saying that we would
like to be able to have the possibility to have those briefings on camera. and i also think in addition to meeting the needs of broadcasters and the needs of the journalists in the press corps, it is in the interest of the american public to be able to see that back and forth between journalists and the administration that we are covering. abby: right. >> that is a visual opportunity for people to see democracy in action. abby: you know, i think we can all agree on that, there is such an important relationship between the media and the press. do you think, though, any changes need to be made to these press briefings? we talk to the american people all the time, a lot of them say this has become more of a reality show than really informing us on things we want to know about. in your honest opinion, do you think any changes need to be made? >> well, it's in my interests to represent the interests of my members and the members of the correspondents' association. there's criticism of the briefing just like healthy criticism of anything that journalists and politicians do, i think there's nothing wrong with that, and i think people
are -- let me just finish my thought. the principle is transparency, and that's why we're requesting and arguing and advocating for those briefings to be open. of. clayton: you represent the interests of the correspondents. the white house has its own message it wants to get out -- >> sure. clayton: who in that room then is representing the american people? >> well, you know, we represent the american people insofar as we're doing our constitutionally-protected jobs of journalism. the white house, of course, and the president were elected by the american people, so there's not -- i'm not in a tug-of-war about who's representing whom. but what we are advocating for is the constitution and the protections that are provided by that. now, you asked, you know, does the white house have a right to figure out its own messaging strategy? of course. and they're doing that. and i i think that's one of the calculations that they're making with these briefings. but as i said and have said a couple times, it's in our interest to push for that transparency to be present and for the briefings to be as open as possible. pete: jeff mason, thanks for joining us.
