brian: wasn't always mel alan camp. >> that's right. brian: growing up it was very confusing for us. ainsley: there was a point when he did not have mellencamp attached to his name? steve: he was john cougar. ainsley: john cougar mellencamp. brian: you made the adjustment. ainsley: there was no adjusting. that's what it was. i went to him live when he was cougar. brian: fine when he was a cougar. steve: meanwhile on this wednesday morning. todd prior row live from the country. do they feature a country omelet? >> ironically, steve, they have an omelet called the country omelet. it has hash browns inside. not only fired up about the country omelet. they are fired up to talk to you, the american people about the issues. there is one other thing they want to do. guys, i believe it's called the south korea wohoo on the count of 3: 1, 2.
3. [wohoo. >> for the lovely ainsley this gentleman has one thing to same. >> go gamecocks. ainsley: i love him even though he is wearing purple. i was born in spartanburg around the corner where you are right now. tell them all we said hello. brian: fantastic. don't alienate joel he is from brooklyn, new jersey. you called them your people. ainsley: similar accent, yes. right, joel? >> right. steve: joel is the stage manager just off camera. you can't see him. brian: i have never met him. steve: one of the things they're going to be talking about today is healthcare. what's up with that? brian: we'll have to wait a few more weeks, at least, before the senate bill. we'll vote to repeal and replace obamacare before we find out if we can get something going forward. ainsley: that's right. president trump is now asking the leaders to get it done
over the next few weeks, to get better healthcare to the american people. steve: wait. over the next couple weeks. griff jenkins joins us from washington. i thought it was going to happen like today or tomorrow. now they are putting it way down the calendar, aren't they? >> they are. hey, steve, ainsley and brian. good morning. the goal was to vote on the healthcare bill before the fourth of july recess. but no deal was in sight and they are back to the drawing board. senate majority leader mitch mcconnell delayed the vote after it became clear it stood no chance of passing. growing resistance within the rank's nine g.o.p. senators now opposing the bill for a variety of reasons, not going far enough. medicaid cuts. cbo didn't help very much. after meeting at the white house after all 52 senators, mitch mcconnell was quite optimistic. this is a very complicated subject. i remember how challenging it was for the democrats when they were enacting this back in 2009 and 2010. it's a big, complicated
subject. we have a lot of discussions going on and still optimistic we are going to get there. >> mcconnell says progress was made at that meeting, and he will need to sway at least seven of those nine holdouts to get there as the president continued to press the urgency of the situation. >> we have really no choice but to solve this situation. obamacare is a total disaster. it's melting down as we speak. rates are going up. >> no help from democrats who uniformly oppose the bill. senate minority leader chuck schumer calling it rotten. >> the republican bill, it's rotten at the core. the american people are not for big tax breaks to the wealthiest of americans. nor are they for dramatically cutting their healthcare. >> now, lawmakers leave town on friday for the recess as g.o.p. leaders hope some time off may change minds. they will be back in mid july to give it another shot. we'll see where they get, guys?
steve: griff jenkins live at our nation's capital. thank you very much. you look at what happened yesterday on capitol hill the republican leadership looks terrible. terrible. brian: yes. the bottom line is there is a lot of difference of opinion. moderates aren't happy and conservatives aren't happy. if you ask me who is going to hold up this bill. normally i would say ted cruz tough to budge. rand paul is so dug in. the conservatives said listen, this isn't right but i'm going to work. ted cruz goes i want to get to yes. rand paul i like dealing with the president. i want to get to yes. it's moderates that seem to be the ones that would not budge. and mitch mcconnell is trying to whip it all together. i couldn't believe susan collins had such disto the president. this president is first in our history neither political or military experience. been a challenge for him to learn how to interact with congress. what does this have to do with the president. you guys get your act together. the president will sign it.
ainsley: i was optimistic when i heard it might happen over the next few weeks. we were talking is this really going to happen before the fourth of july. very doubtful. the next few weeks that's doable. they have to make sure they get it right. they need to take take time to do that. senators in states where medicaid is very popular in their states. don't want to vote for something that's going to cost or take medicaid from people who really rely on it. brian: it's not taking it away as you know. increasing spending 20%. money that they were throwing to all those states, we are 21 trillion in debt. the last president had no business throwing that money out there. ainsley: from what i understand though, it is taking medicaid away, because what kellyanne conway was saying is that you have given -- president obama gave and gave and gave and ogave some entitlements, now republicans are going to have to pull some of it back. because it was going do people that didn't need it. brian: slowing the increase on medicaid. steve: ultimately we don't know because they haven't figured out what the final bill is it would change if they get to that.
the big question is whether they will. a lot of people in washington say it probably won't. if the republicans fail to undual obamacare which they ran on for many years and promise. give us total control of the government and we are going to do it. if the republicans can't do that you know what? conservative voters are never going to trust them again and there will be a wipe out in the mid terms. brian: charles krauthammer weighed in on this last night. >> this is not a failure of communication as in cool hand leukemia. this is a failure of expectations. the country does not want to see the entitlements that were handed out by obamacare retracted. that's the issue. it's not communication. it's not the lack of coordination between the house and the senate. it's the fact that medicare was inflated. >> people are used to what was. they don't want to give it back. that's the reason that obamacare repeal is in trouble. the country is not where it was seven years ago. it's the reason that the left
usually wins. because, when you land out goodies, since the new deal, it is extremely hard to bring them back. that's the core issue here. steve: okay. so ultimately what happens is if the republicans can't get this through, mitch mcconnell is going to have to go ahead and do the money haul thing with chuck schumer. the moderates, you presume, would like to work with chuck schumer to find something in the middle. ultimately what republican voters were promised by the republicans to get elected is not what's going to happen. brian: anthem weighed in yesterday they want the republican plan. a lot of insurers have flat out bowed out as lisa murkowski sitting right next to the president yesterday, she has a situation where in the private exchange rates are up, premiums are up. same thing with senator mccain arizona. jeff flake, arizona. they are the ones should be leading the charge. the president should be pushing people together. but this should be a legislative dream. the president is letting you
hash it out and then saying put the best thing can you forward. i laugh at the fact the "new york times" goes out of their way to say how the president did this or didn't do that and going out of their way to find something where the president wasn't leading. he got out of way because mitch mcconnell wanted him to lay the groundwork and the president to come in at the last minute and mitch mcconnell pushed the president to have that meeting yesterday which he did. ainsley: sarah huckabee sanders deputy press secretary standing in for sean spicer yesterday in front of the all the media outlets. she was unloading on how everyone in that room was reporting on russia, russia, russia more than the things important to american people. job growth, healthcare, deregulation and tax reform. this is what the media needs to be covering. steve: sure, and you look at what tv news has been obsessed with. and we have got a graphic, they have spent 353 minutes talking about mr. comey and russia climate change 47 minutes. terrorism 29. obamacare repeal 17.
economy and jobs just 5 minutes out of a period between may 17th and june 20th. that's a lot of time. ainsley: that's abc, nbc and cbs combined. brian: steve key member of the trump election team imindicated in enbusiness ties to russia. turns out the story had no merit to it and one source. cnn immediately retracted that story and fired the three people in the investigative unit and then that story reveals that the one of the reasons that cnn realized they had to apologize quickly is because they were wrong, number one. number two is they were going to get sued by a guy that was going to go to the hill to prove his re innocence that was anthony scarmucci. they don't want to screw up big merger with at&t. that could do it if they all
have anthony scarmucci. ainsley: with bright bart. why is cnn retracting. why isn't that enough for president trump. why kin continuing the cnn narrative. do you not expect us to russia colluding or trying to change our elections? so she responded to him and in another reporter, brian karem. with the sentinel newspapers in the washington, d.c. area also happens to write for playboy magazine. he jumps in. he is just incensed by this. watch it we have the video. >> if the media can't be trusted to report the news, then that's a dangerous place for america. and i think if that is the place certain outlets are going particularly for the purpose of spiking ratings, and if that's coming directly from the top, i think that's even more scarier. we have been going on this russia/trump hoax for the better part of a year now with no evidence of anything.
things like the success at the v.a. barely get covered. they may get covered for an hour at a time. this story gets covered day, in day out. and i think america is frankly looking for something better. >> you are explaining to everybody right here with those words. this administration has done that as well. why in the name of heaven, any one of us, right are replace cybil and any one of us if we don't get it right, the audience has the opportunity to turn the channel or not read it have you been elected to serve for four years at least. there is no option other than that we're here to ask you questions. >> i disagree completely. first of all, i think if anything has been inflamed it's the dishonesty that often takes place by the news media. i think it is outrageous for you to accuse me of inflaming a story when i was simply trying to respond to a question: brian: be accurate and make
everybody look bad and bad pointed it out. steve: covering that all morning long. meanwhile how would president ronald reagan pass healthcare. more with tammy bruce and look back what the gipper said once upon a time. 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. usaa gives me the and the security just like the marines did. the process through usaa is so effortless, that you feel like you're a part of the family. i love that i can pass the membership to my children. we're the williams family, and we're usaa members for life.

one leads to another. pretty soon your son won't decide where he is in school where he will go or what he will do for a living. he will wait for the government to tell him. steve: there have you got ronald reagan speaking out against socialized medicine back in 1961. warning of its threat to american freedom. so how would he get he rond reagan republicans on board. we wondered. we called in radio talk show host tammy bruce that was audio clip from then private citizen ronald reagan. >> still an actor. steve: something called operation coffee cup. >> this is actually an album a vinyl record. you remember those. steve: sure. >> still love them. sent to groups of women particular loy were having gatherings at their home tea parties if you will. played at those tea parties, coffee fluch clutches as they wrote letters to their congress people and senators telling them don't implement
this program this ultimately became medicare because it was going to eventually limit people's resources and limit their options. doctors would be paid less money fewer options. kind of what we're experiencing now. steve: kind of exactly what we're looking at. >> it's the same thing. reagan and conservatives there was another alternative which was block grant to states to help people. it's not that would he wanted people who didn't have resources to not get healthcare, it was about the method. reagan's concern and out our concern no now is also the moment you take a step and liberals at the time argued. this the moment we get our foot in the door it will cascade into socialized medicine. the problem is we now see with obamacare and around the world, is that there is less money for doctors. there are fewer dzhokhar tores. you wait forever for an appointment. the care is not as good. less innovation. so, of course, we recognized that over 50 years ago. and it's happening now. reagan, as president though, so even as a private citizen he was involved. reagan as president, i think
that in this kind of a dynamic, he was excellent at getting legislators to do what he needed them to do. president trump has been relying on mike pence and reince priebus in this regard. and i think that what reagan would tell trump is for him to get more personally involved. deal with the legislative process. and have, i think, more of a stick than a carrot. steve: sure, mr. trump's problem right now is the caucus. you have some in the middle they don't get along ideologically with the far right. >> reagan had the same problem. this is not new. the republican establishment at the time did not want reagan as president. it was the same issues. steve: sounds familiar. >> swamp vs. change. what reagan did coffee clutch dynamic was getting people involved, having his back, engaging the people. kind of like the first podcast, engaging people to make the difference for him. steve: interesting stuff. the past is prologue. >> yes, exactly.

percentage points after not having gone definitively for a republican since 1988. one of those trump voters is lowery who is not a registered republican. first, why did you vote for donald trump? >> because i think he is the man for the job. he is the man that would hopefully drain the swamp. and reform the healthcare disaster that's obamacare. >> let's go into healthcare for a moment. you are an emergency room nurse. tell me why healthcare is such a big problem for you the way you see it currently under obamacare. >> well it, ties back to one of the biggest problems we have in this country is waste and the economy that we have. it's circling the drain right now. i think there is a tremendous amount of waste in healthcare. todd: medicaid specifically. tell me what you see medicaid waste wise. >> i see a lot of people that come in that take advantage of the program that come in for seemingly very insignificant problems on a regular basis. when you have people that work
a job, pay the taxes to cover those expenses, and can't afford to come in for very significant problems themselves. todd: that said, what do you think about the republicans delaying the vote? >> i honestly caught just a snippet of it last night, so -- but based on what i do know, i think they need to make it right, take their time, if they must, make it right. todd: lowery, thank you for your time. >> thank you. todd: todd, have you a very name. you voted for donald j. trump why did you vote for him. >> i voted for him because set man for the job. we have career politicians. with his hands tied behind his back is he doing a good job. todd: as a business owner you told me before we went on here, that you have trouble hiring people because of the way the current system is go into more detail on that. >> down here in chester there has been a lot of mills that have closed so there has been a lot of people put on
unemployment and welfare. when we are trying to hire people and offer them a $10 an hour job, people can make more money sitting at home on the couch drawing a check. and when they are sitting at home drawing a check, it's hard for me to hire somebody. the government is basically my biggest competitor in trying to hire a workforce. todd: what do you want to see donald trump do to change that? >> well, if he would give some tax credits to the small businesses so we can pay more money to our employees. and maybe do drug testing for people to get a welfare check. you have to do drug testing to get a job. do drug testing to get a welfare test. if you don't pass your drug test you don't get a check. todd: sounds like mick mulvaney plan. todd, thank you. i'm going over to erin, you voted for donald trump, why? >> i certainly did. donald trump has different enthusiasm, especially to the republican party. he doesn't always speak and
say the right thing, of course, or the right wording but it all comes from a good place. he speaks just like we do. i think that's what resonated to the entire country. todd: you are a stay at home mom. >> i am. todd: i am the product of a stay at home mom. i love my mom to death. tell me the concerns the lack of civility you see in society. >> college campuses are completely out of control. i hear all the time that republicans need to be more diverse or the country needs to be more diverse. i think that the diversified needs to start on college campuses. the only intolerant thing we face on college campuses are conservative views. those are not tolerated. and i think those are -- that's our generation. that's the next generation coming into the workforce. i think there needs to be a lot more diversity starting at our college campuses. faculty and students. todd: erin, thank you for your time. we have a lot more to come in richburg, south carolina. right now send it to new york

steve: a former delta intelligence analyst and author of a brand new book called drone warrior an elite soldiers' inside account for america's most dangerous enemies bret belkovich. good morning to you. >> we never. a strike and that's it. don't know about what went into it. what did you experience over the last few years. as this drone neck toggle developed. at first there wasn't a hell fire missile on these drones. >> i have seen drone technology move significantly over the last few years. that's because of how it is saving lives, protecting americans overseas. and we are really utilizing it in a way that helps, you know, go after america's enemies. that was part of my role in that was basically utilizing some of the most signature indicated tech in the arsenal to hunt down and pinpoint terrorists in different locations. steve: we are using. so most sophisticated technology to watch what's going on in syria. obviously we have drones and eyes in the sky trying to keep
an eye on what is happening. what sort of advice would you give right now on how we should proceed? >> i think we definitely have to draw the line with syria. special with all the recent news about the chemical attack the. we have got to be more aggressive and ensure that we're not letting them push us around especially when innocent lives are being lost over there we have got to do something. that's what america does best. ainsley: saw the picture of the children being killed in the last terror attack. what should president trump do specifically if it happens again. >> he has. so best leaders around him to make those decisions and make those calls. folk he is that are tried and true americans and know what they are doing. i think we have got great leaders four government that can make that decision for us. brian: let's talk about you. let's talk about the group that came together to use drone technology to take out the worst of the worst in this new age of warfare. who are these people, roughly where are you located? >> so, you know, we had to be where the terrorists are.
they are not taking off. we had socially move with them and go after them wherever they were. the organization i worked for was made up of. so best minds in the business of war. i was surrounded by some of the most brilliant people that were nonstop going after these days day after day after day and keeping the pressure up. so it was incredible experience. and. steve: you weren't the guy who pulled the trigger. you did the analysis to figure out hot targets were. >> right. steve: over a period of time and you told us during the commercial you would watch them for a beard of time. sometimes weeks. you kind of got to know the terrorists. >> absolutely. some guys we he would watch for months at a time. other guys we would only watch one day it really depended on what we wanted to do. typically terrorists are worth more to us us alive than they are dead, right? we want to get vital information to help unraffaele networks like isis and fight other leaders. we were going after the worst of the worst. they weren't guys who stole a pack of cigarettes from a grocery store.
these were people who killed tens of thousands of innocence and coming for us. ainsley: capture. brian: no capture. >> what i think is going to surprise a lot of people about this book is most of the time we actually do capture that's because we need to get information out of these guy he is. he he one of the things that i think people never really ask. they ask how many kills do you have? how many innocence got lost. they never ask how many lives did we save? ainsley: you can't put a number on that. >> you a can't quantify it. you can't quantify it because you know this individual drove a bomb into a marketplace answered killed all these innocent people you don't know what he is going to do the next week. those are the people hunting and those are the ones coming from us. ainsley: might have prevented another 9/11. >> we hope. so do our best and do what america asks us to do out there and what our government leaders ask us to do and hope it saves lives. brian: pick up this book. it's going to be a movie. >> that's the word. i'm limited on what can i say about that.

because you have a chance of doing things. you know with president obama, we disagreed on some things we ended up doing. this we had to work but it wasn't to the end we like. with president trump, this the sky is the limit. the senate is a razor thin majority. that's a very tight majority. we have this opportunity and we just can't k. not blow it that's why we are so mode vacated. that's why we are moving so quickly. some people don't realize all we are doing we are doing it so quickly. we want to make good on our promises. brian: your schedule is so tight. you already threw me out of one meeting. now you are about to stop this interview because you have to go salute korean war veterans. >> go do the korean war veterans. >> the speaker of the house. then i have got to go open the floor. >> the representatives elect will please raise their right hands. congratulations you are now members of the 115th congress.

browns, eggs, bacon. it's not just about food and football. it's about the facts. it's about the issues that people here in this county, chester county are talking about. people are fired up here. and specifically, this was a place that fairly democratic up until 2016 when trump won this area by five points. people want to talk about the issues. we are going to do that for you coming up in a little bit. steve: all right. towed, we will be watching for that. ainsley: we love them too. they love steve and brian. ainsley: i'm just from south carolina. steve: we love to do the diner segments unlike other tv shows we go out to the people because we want to hear what you have to say. ainsley: some people like the diner segments. brian: i do. michelle malkin investigates the name of her show on cr-tv.com. it is fantastic. michelle, welcome back. i have got to get your first take on the delay of the senate healthcare version of healthcare reform.
is this a good thing? >> no, it's not. this is my pose here for every time i have to read the headlines about the developments with the obamacare repeal botch. i think it's exhibit a. a textbook case of why so many americans in both parties are fed up with washington. and i have long called out the bipartisan crap weasels on both sides of the aisle. look, so many republicans were elected. they had won job. repeal obamacare. steve: that's all. >> and that's it. and it's fairly clear to most ordinary americans what repeal means. the problem with what's happening in the senate now stems back to the house republicans. who couldn't agree on a straight repeal. the repeal that they offered up during the obama years that was clear. and that made sense and that did what they promised to do.
but some of these swamp creatures overpromise and under deliver. steve: you are talking about republican when you say refer to swamp creatures. >> i absolutely am. of course i'm talking as somebody who has been an out of the closet conservative journalist for more than 25 years. so the idea that it's a surprise that they can't get their acts together before july 4th is ridiculous. in fact, it is very predictable for those of us that are watched the republican establishment. brian: you know in reality. i know what your type of healthcare reform would be as a conservative. i get that. but, in reality, if they do a clean repeal, and a clean replace, they needed 60 votes. are you saying they should have just forgot about -- i mean, just not worried about not getting the 60 votes and instead of trying to pass something through. steve go nuclear. brian: to get 52 -- to get 51. >> i understand what you are saying about pragmatism, brian. this is about keeping promises. with regards to being a
conservative and what i think healthcare reform should be, i speak not from ideological viewpoint here but as somebody who had three private individual market plans cancelled under obamacare. and it's a matter of emphasis and priorities. okay. we had 8 years of obama and liberal progressive democrats who fiste foised this idea that going on insurance plans. market i belong to saw their healthcare taken away. why is it that republicans in washington have to capitulate and allow liberal progressive democrats to dictate the terms of the policy debate here? steve: i'm with you. my daughter is on obamacare. so many of the democrats are talking about obamacare fondly as if it's the gold standard. the problem for the republican notice congress right now is because they have -- if they
fail to undo obamacare, whatever it is. conservative voters are never going to trust them again, never, ever, ever. they were elected many of them for this one job. right now it doesn't look like -- unlike larry the cable guy not going to getter done. >> it doesn't look like it, steve. they will face those consequences and they deserve those consequences. ainsley: are you okay with it? >> if these conservative republicans continue to hammer the point home about the losses and consequences of the impact of this government intervention on ordinary working americans who don't want handouts, if they were leading, then we would get there. brian: the thing is, michelle, everything you are saying is correct but in reality they are not all conservatives on the right. there are moderates. they are going to put their weight in and there is only 52 votes. remember, president obama had 60. that's the only reason he got it passed. he barely got that done. so in from reality how do you
get the democratic votes with when you put something out there that you know will fail? >> well, if it were me, i would i emphasize again this isn't just about medicaid. look, president trump won because he understood that there were warped priorities in washington that the forgotten men and women of america. and that's what we're talking about here when we talk about the impact that this massive obamacare plan had on people whose healthcare was taken away. ainsley: we want to move on and talk about what happened in the briefing room yesterday. sarah huckabee sanders was standing at the podium. she was stand go ahead in for sean spicer because she is the deputy press secretary. she had kind of a heated exchange with one of the reporters in the audience. she was talking about hey you all want to talk about russia, return, russia. we need to talk about what really matters and tax reform and healthcare and so on and so on. this one reporter gets upset and said you are just inflaming all of us. listen to this exchange and get your reaction to this.
>> right here and right now with those words. this administration has done that as well. why in the name of heaven any one of us, right, are replace cybil and any one of us, if we don't get it right, the audience has the opportunity to turn the channel or not read us. you have been elected to serve for four years at least. there is no option other than that. we are here to ask you questions. >> i disagree completely. first of all, i think if anything has been inflamed, it's the dishonesty that often takes place by the news media. i think it is outrageous for you to accuse me of inflaming a story when i was simply trying to respond to his question. brian: by the way, this was also based on a cnn story which they had to apologize for. >> yeah. that's right. i think that sarah huckabee sanders did a great job there of standing up to a so-called reporter who was essentially a political operative and the inflammation is coming from
these journalists who are acting such a partisan manner and pretending to have this shield of neutrality around them. steve: it's interesting. the media research center did -- you know, they looked at all the time the big three networks spent on stuff. the russia/comey investigation 353 minutes between may 17th and june 20th. climate change 47 minutes. fighting terrorism 29 minutes. obamacare repeal and replace 17 minutes. and the economy and jobs, which are always important only 5 minutes. it would be one thing, michelle if there was some there there regarding russia and collusion. there just hasn't been any proof that there is any. >> yeah. well, russia eye ti itis has afd so many of the media elite. i learned a new phrase. the russian phrase for fake news.
[speaking russian] how is that for my pronunciation. brian: what? [speaking russian] >> i know i'm going to get a million tweets about my awful pronunciation. ainsley: are you shocked next topic they spent a lot of time on is climate change. >> of course not. narrative shapers and narrative workers. meanwhile so much injustice. there is so many other real stories going on in the world. but these people have an agenda and they refuse to admit it i have to give a shoutout to james o'keefe and project veritas who have been exposing that. they did yesterday. subject of the white house press briefing and of course of a lot of consternation among the people who would rather cover their bias up. brian: producer was exposed. see that everywhere. producer exposed on camera not denied by cnn, coming out and saying that they don't see any russian angle but told to push it forward because it means ratings.
>> and there is more coming. brian: really? steve: interesting stuff. ainsley: thanks michelle. steve: always a pleasure. have a good week. ainsley: jillian has news. jillian: affecting a lot of you this morning. get to the fox news alert. a deadly accident at one of the nation's busiest railroad systems. we have just learned two railroad employees hit and killed by a train just outside washington, d.c.'s union station. an investigation has been launched into why they were on the tracks. amtrak now dealing with massive delays in the northeast corridor. stay with "fox & friends" for any updates. we will keep you posted. and to another fox news alert. abrasionen attack on a supreme court building overnight. a stolen police helicopter flying overhead and firing grenades in venezuela. the nation's president calling it a terror attack. government officials say a rogue police officer was flying the chopper. violent antigovernment protests have been raging for months in the socialist

decade in tax increases. 700 billion of those over the next decade go away. almost all of them over time. but, they include taxes that point out how much obamacare hurts the middle class. 30 million americans have flexible savings accounts. you know if you have one of those. obamacare raised taxes on your flexible savings account. 20 million americans have health savings accounts. you know who you are if you have got those. 20 million americans are damaged by obamacare's taxes there. there is the $2,000 tax or penalty or fine or fee for not buying the healthcare obama shot you should buy for a family of four, $2,000 for which you get nothing. it's just a penalty. steve: sure, they get rid of all of that under the republican plan. you know how the democrats have been messaging this big 700 billion-dollar tax cut is for the rich. >> that is exactly what the establishment press has been saying. we actually send letters to
them each time with a list of all the tax cuts and who gets them. steve: it's a middle class tax cut. >> it is a tremendous reduction in taxes on the middle class. they have a tax on insurance premiums. they say that's a tax on insurance companies. okay. your premium. the average americans are getting $5,000 over the next decade paying $5,000 more because you and i, when we buy insurance, have to pay that tax that goes with your insurance. steve: sure. >> that's a direct hit on middle income americans and perhaps the worst one is the chronic care tax. in the past, if you had spending on healthcare, more than 7.5% you could deduct it because you were being hit by a lot of healthcare cost. obamacare moved that to 10%. 10 million americans are hit by that regularly, costing about $36 billion over a decade. if you are very sick and low income, obamacare whacks you on the side of the head thank you very much with all the
other probes. ainsley: the mainstream media is saying that repeal and replace, the republican plan it's in a coma, we heard that in one of the headlines. do you think this is going to happen? are republicans going to be able to repeal and replace and push this through? >> yes. this is being organized on the senate with mitch mcconnell putting it together. we are also six months into this administration. you remember it took more than a year for the democrats to invent obamacare. even though they had the plan all written out from the beginning. it's now going to be some time in the next -- in this month. steve: right. >> where the senate will move. the house will accept what the senate had. the house and senate are talking. steve: okay. >> the competent governors want the opportunity to take care of medicaid in their states. steve: so, grofer, these republicans who are the holdouts, you say they actually have their hand out. they really want something? >> well, look, if you are one ever the senators, you want the people back in your state to know you are a player, you have been doing something. there will be this public
conversation about this senator, you know made the case for x and there will be some changes. not the kind of -- i mean, had you some real corruption going on when obamacare came. in billions and billions of dollars flowing into particular states, exceptions made for florida. i think a number of the senators have concerns and they want to make sure that their constituents see them fighting for x, whatever x is in their state. and that will be worked out. there's not a problem with getting rid of it. the republicans -- get rid of as much of obamacare legally do under the stupid senate rules we are stuck with, and to fix things for the future like expanding health savings accounts which is another tax cut. not just protecting them but expanding them for everybody e. ainsley: ted cruz one the holdouts. said not there yet but we are going to get there thank you, grover. steve: nobody knows more on taxes than that guy right there. hillary clinton isn't going back into the woods any time soon.

election definitively was george h.w. bush back in 1988. but in 2016 it went for donald j. trump and one of those trump voters is howell. why did you vote for trump. >> i voted for donald trump because he is a businessman just like he keeps his promises and just like ralph norman who we are sending up there to congress to fill mic full veiny's shoes. todd: you run a bunch of gas stations in and around the area. one of the issues is obamacare. you told me you actually had to get rid of employees to get under that 50 person threshold. talk about that. >> we had about 52 or 53 employees. we had to lay off a couple people and put people on part time to stay under that 50 employee threshold. and if we wouldn't have, you know, our insurance premiums was going to increase $300,000 a year. and that's just something as a small businessman we cannot afford. that's just a difference in making a profit and not. todd: quickly, what do you

pass the obamacare overhaul bill before the july recess. now republican senators are headed home where they're going to get an earful of why can't you just get it done? senate majority leader mitch mcconnell delaying the vote until next month, at the earliest, with nine gop senators now opposing the bill for a variety of reasons, michelle appearing on this show in the last hour saying this is why the american people are so frustrated with washington. >> they had one job. repeal obamacare. and it's fairly simple what repeal means. >> the failure to reap of a deal prompted president trump to summon all 52 senators to the white house as he pressed the urgency for the situation. >> for the country, we have to have health care, and it can't be obamacare, which is melting
down. the other side is saying all sorts of things before they knew what the bill was. this will be great if we get it done. >> now, leader mcconnell says progress was made at that meeting and need to sway at least seven of those nine holdouts, but he won't have any help from democrats. senate minority leader vowing to fight it no matter what. >> we're going to fight the bill tooth and nail, and we have a darn good chance defeating it a week from now, a month from now, a year from now. >> they've got a long a to go to get to "yes" to appease those moderate end republicans. guys. steve: thank you so much. you have to figure the white house is disappointed because how many stories have we heard in the last week how mitch mcconnell's going to get it done because he's a master at stuff like this and yet when push came to shove, and we got closer and closer, he had so many members of his own caucus he said i don't even want to
vote on who's we're going to have a vote. and that was a revolt. brian: and dean came out and had a press conference and it turns out the super pack with president trump started running ads and then in the middle of that meeting yesterday said can you guys stop doing this? i'm the only vulnerable republican running, and they realized i guess the president of the united states realized we should call this off. i don't know who was behind that. but in the big picture, i see lisa, the senator for maine sitting right next to the president yesterday and both of them seem to be pretty disallusioned with the package presented because medicaid would not increase at the rate it would have under president obama and the cbo says more would be without a health care plan. bottom line is, though, i could not believe that susan collins went out of the way to disthe president saying his lack of legislative background and military background as president hurt the process. really? he gave it up to you guys, men, women, to work it out.
this is one time you would expect his own party to maybe back him up and not turn on him like this. ainsley: do you think it will apass? brian: close enough. i think there's a lot of people that will say get me to "yes" including guys like ted cruz, rand paul, and john johnson. steve: i just don't know if they're going to get to it or not. but republican leadership in congress looks weak, and the problem is if they can't do something, the republicans all duet on the same page, they're going to wind up back at the negotiating table and who's going to be across from them? chuck schumer. chuck schumer's going to have a whole list of stuff he wants done that isn't going to be anything like the list that mitch mcconnell has. now, charles krauthammer says forget about blaming the republicans. meanwhile, you have grover who's on this program just
about 15 minutes ago, and he said he thinks things will get done, and actually, it's going to be a great, big tax savings for the middle class. >> the repeal of obamacare, the reform of health care that the republican senate has passed is among other things a 700 billion-dollar tax cut. one of the things that obama was elected promising was that he would never -- and he said this again and because then. he would never raise taxes on anyone, anyone who earns more than -- less than $250,000 a year of any kind of tax. obamacare was a collection of about 20 different taxes with a stethoscope stapled to the top of the. >> meanwhile, the president of the united states was tweeting this morning. >> he said some of the fake media likes to say i'm not totally engaged in health care. wrong. i know the subject well, and i want victory for the u.s. you have to remember, this is what he ran on, repeal and replace. he knows it, it's just up to congress to get him there.
steve: and& what he's talking about there is while he was able to get things done with the house version of the bill, he was not able to get anything done with the senate, and he was on the sidelines. they're pushing back saying he was very involved, and proved it. i #fakenews, brian? brian: eight minutes after the hour, let's talk about why the white house has had it up to here -- and i'm putting my hand up. had it up to here. steve: how high can your hand go? brian: this is just rehearsal, and when i do the actual show -- oh, this is the actual show? steve: yeah. brian: meanwhile, take a look at this break down. the media research counsel did a breakdown on what the media's been covering. 353 minutes of russia comey. 47 minutes of the paris agreement. 29 minutes on fighting terrorism because of the
tomahawk missiles and 17 minutes on obamacare repeal and replace. now, that's going to change just a little bit. the problem with this story is there's no, there there when it comes to collusion. are they still going to stick with the russia theme? steve: well, the problem is when i started this segment with- to fakenews is because sarah huckabee sands was talking about how there's so much fake news out there, people don't know what's true and what isn't. there was the cnn embarrassment this week where they had to take down a story that threatened anthony to russia. and said, hey, you three people all in here, you're all fired. we're going to pay you off. go on. brian: yeah, they still get their contract punishment. meanwhile, brian who writes for a small magazine playboy, a magazine you probably don't get, went at it with sarah huckabee.
let's listen. >> right here right now with those words. this administration has done that as well. why in the name of heaven any one of us; right? a replaceable, any one of us if we don't get it right, the audience has the opportunity to turn the channel or not read it. you have been elected to serve for four years, at least. there is no option other than that. we're here to ask you questions. >> i disagree completely, first of all. i think if anything has been inflamed, it's the dishonesty that often takes place by the news media. and i think it is outrageous for you to accuse me of inflaming a story when i was simply trying to respond to the question. brian: remember the president gave himself a c when it comes to communication. and one thing he has to do, no matter what any president does, they have to get the word out about it. and if getting the word out through the media is the most effective way, you can imagine their frustration when the media doesn't get the word about anything they're doing. steve: if you listened to the
press briefing, she spent the first five minutes about what they had been doing that day but the media chooses to focus on something else. that's why one reason they decided to take down the camera, and i saw this morning on one of the websites an interview with db meyers talking about how in the early weeks of the clinton administration, they decided that they were going to do most of george stephanopoulos press conferences with no cameras. brian: right. steve: and unlike now where certain reporters are saying this is the end of for the most part the first amendment, back in those days, it was not a problem. ainsley: i thought she handled it beautifully, sarah huckabee sanders. i would be sweating bullets if someone went at me like this. and she just turned back and said okay. back to you, kevin. brian: did you like the way she handled it? >> yeah. i like the way she handled it. ainsley: that would be the most nerve-racking job for me because you don't know what they're going to ask, and you
have to be prepared on a myriad of topics. >> yeah. very challenging. we do have some breaking news to get to at this hour. a story we've been following for you. a fox news alert right now. a deadly accident at one of the nation's busiest railroad systems. two railroad employees hit and killed by a train just outside washington, d.c.'s union station. an investigation has been launched as to why they were on the tracks. amtrak now dealing with massive delays. this story still breaking at this hour. stay with fox news for the latest update. a lightning strike hits two construction workers killing one of them. this happened in florida where emergency crews rushed a 34-year-old to the hospital where he later died. the men were working when it happens, but it's unclear with both men were directly hit. president trump set on making america safe again. the named after kate steinle, she was murdered in san francisco by a repeat felon who was deported five
times. the proposal increases penalties for immigrants who try to reenter the u.s. congress also slated to vote this week on the "no" sanctuary for criminals act. blocking federal funds from cities that protect illegal immigrants. and that's a look at your headlines on this wednesday. i will send it back to you guys and see you in a little bit. steve: all right. jillian, thank you. president trump meeting with republican leaders 4:00 yesterday afternoon to try to hammer out what happens next in the repeal and replace of obamacare. ainsley: and one of the lawmakers in that room john is going to join us live. next. brian: that will be great. and hillary clinton isn't going back any time soon. she has an announcement that no one's waiting for. there's nothing more important to me than my vacation. so when i need to book a hotel room,

steve: well, we're going to have to wait a few more weeks perhaps to wait the fate of obamacare as senate republicans decided to delay the vote. the president pushed for a new bill to better serve americans but can republicans come together and get her done? senate republican chairman jim worked on the senate bill and
there with the white house with the president yet, and he joins us from capitol hill. good morning, senator. >> welcome, steve. steve: what went wrong with your plan this week? >> not quite enough votes. it eventually as it always does comes down to math, and we didn't have quite the number of votes to get the current proposal, the draft across the finish line. so now it's a function of going back to the drawing board, but we will get there. we have members committed to getting the "yes," and they realize that failure is not an option. steve: when you say going back to the drawing board, you're not talking about starting from scratch. >> no. we're going to take the bill that we have and try to -- there are always little things, dials you can twist to try to attract support, and we got a couple of issues that are outstanding, a couple of issues that conservatives want to address, a couple of issues that moderates want to address and really at this point, it is a function of just trying to figure out that sweet spot where you can get the 50 votes you need to pass it and of
course the assistance of mike pence, the vice president, and the chair if necessary. we will get there, and i hope we make some significant progress here in the next couple of days so that we have something to put together so when we come back after the july 4th break with we're ready to put it on the floor and vote on it. steve: i think the president of the united states was by some stuff that he read on the mainstream media that suggested he was on the sidelines during the senate negotiations. is that accurate that he didn't really have much to do with it? >> it's not. the president's very involved, and he's engaged with individual members that have specific concerns that they want to see addressed. he's engaged with our entire conference, as you saw yesterday, he had all republicans come down to the white house and convey to them a sense of urgency and getting something done and rescuing the american people from what is a failed obamacare system that continues to drive up rates and collapse markets. this is a failed system that needs to be replaced. we've got to rescue the american people and give them a better way. steve: okay. so, in other
words, you are at the monte hall stage of let's make a deal. you're looking at the holdouts trying to figure out what they need to say "yes"; right? >> yeah, that's -- basically. we want people to get to "yes," and so we have to figure out what it is and get them there. steve: okay. and you are confident that at the end of the day this is going to pass? >> i am because, to me, steve, failure is simply not an option. we have made commitments to american people we have had to get done. of course, we have to deal with the hand we've been dealt, and this has to be done with republican votes, which means we have to find 50 republicans, and that means we're going to have to do a little -- like i said, a little twisting of the dials. i think by the end of the week, we'll get there, and we'll get this across the finish line and on the president's desk. steve: good luck. you have a lot to work out. senator, thank you very much for joining us today. >> thanks, steve. good to be with you. steve: good to have you. meanwhile, our opioid crisis
is a full blown epidemic. and our next guest marine core veteran says the key to saving lives is build that border wall e won't do that. no. you can leave worry behind when liberty stands with you™. liberty mutual insurance. yet up 90% fall short in getting key nutrients from food alone. let's do more. add one a day men's complete with key nutrients we may need. plus heart-health support with b vitamins. one a day men's in gummies and tablets. tha...oh, burnt-on gravy?ie. ...gotta rinse that. nope. no way. nada. really? dish issues? throw it all in. new cascade platinum powers through...

steve: all right. we've got quick headlines for you right now. bernie sanders calling an fbi inquiry of his wife pathetic claiming they, the sanders, are the victim. >> when you go after your wife, peoples wives, that is pretty pathetic. i think it's fairly pathetic that when, you know, people are involved -- steve: the fbi is reportedly looking into whether jane sanders falsified loan documents while she served of the president of a small liberal arts school that went bankrupt last year. and hillary clinton says she's got a new book coming out on life after losing.
>> after this election, one of the things that helped me most besides from long walks in the woods and the occasional glass of chardonnay was, once again, going back to the familiar experience of losing myself in books. steve: apparently the key, the woods and the wine it sounds like in that sound bite. meanwhile, losing her new memoir what it's like running as a president, especially if you're a woman. ainsley: she's writing a book about losing? brian: she's the worst loser ever. she blamed everybody but herself. what message is that? ainsley: what do you think about it? send us your comments. in the meantime, america is in the midst of a opioid crisis out of the 52,000 drug overdoses in 2015, over 33,000
of them were related to opioids. brian: president trump has made ending this epidemic a key issue in his administration, starting with the building of a border wall. joining us right now is marine core veteran, contributor reporter at americans for limited government. now, what do you think the wall would do to stop this opioid rises? of course there's no quick fix. but this would fix a lot. how? >> good morning, guys. thanks for having me. ainsley: good morning. >> yes, this would help quite a bit, and this is not a one-stop shop to stop the flow of opioids over the border. what this does is stem the flow of opioids and directs it to where border control can more quickly interindict. brian: what states? >> texas, arizona, and california. and the border patrol knows the area where they want to build the wall, and they've told the president. ainsley: when you think of opioids, i don't necessarily think of getting drugs in mexico.
i think of, like, the doctor prescribing someone who had a bad fall and may hurt their back, and they're taking oxycontin. so explain that to me. what's the connection there? >> well, the connection is that once the doctors stop prescribing opioids, the person is still hooked on opioids, and they've got to go somewhere to get it, and then comes the heroin. and right now people don't realize mexico is the third largest producer of opioids in the world right now. brian: outstanding. >> and in the last years, it has gone up 1,000 percent. brian: meanwhile, stopping in afghanistan too, this would help. that should be our emphasis. oxycontin comes out in 1996 and they marketed it as take as much as you want. that literally killed people. >> yeah. it started there with oxycontin and then went on to other opioid pain prescribers. and whether doctors knew it was up for lawyers to decide. but from there, it went out of control. again, once people
stopped prescribing it, those people are going to go somewhere else. ainsley: now, you have laid out three ways that the wall is going to keep drugs out. will you go through those with us, please? >> one way is going to drive up the price of drugs. and once you drive up the price, people will start to look for treatment. the wall cannot -- somebody seeking treatment is not going to be able to go seek treatment if getting opioids is so much easier. brian: exactly. something else you talk about, it's easier for the border control to catch drug cartels because you're going to funnel them into a certain area because the wall will prevent easy access. >> correct. if you cut off an entire area where customs does not have to look, that narrows it down and people talk about tunnels, we can put sensors in the ground to detect. but putting the walls funneled bad guys into an area and makes it a lot easier for our
guys. ainsley: if you look t at the numbers, the cartels are bringing $64 billion of opioids into the country across the border. the wall is an estimate of 10, $20 billion? so if you look at the numbers, it makes sense to build the wall. >> it depends on who you talk to and how much the wall's going to cost. but if you use the baseline of 25 billion, and university of chicago just did a study last week. just opioid addictions. just opioid. nothing else. costs u.s. $50 billion a year. if the wall is able to reduce that by only 15.5%, the wall is going to pay for itself in five years. brian: exactly. and they're working on a prototype that is going to continue the wall in san diego, and they're doing that right now. ainsley: with solar panels on some parts of it. thank you. coming up next on the run down, president trump isn't the only one fighting fake news.
what sarah palin just did making good headlines this morning. brian: and todd is having breakfast with friends in a small county where no presidential candidate had won for nearly three decades until president trump became president trump. todd. >> that's right, brian. we are talking live with the voters and those who may be able to vote in about 17 years. live from richberg, south carolina when fox and friends comes back ♪

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
ainsley: it's a small southern county where no gop president has won for nearly three decades until this year. brian: so, comma, what do the voters in south carolina think of the president's job so far? question mark. steve: let's talk to todd, he's been talking with voters live with voters at the breakfast omelet. good morning, todd. >> good morning, brian, steve, and ainsley, and what's so interesting about this county, chester county has not gone for a republican since 1988 is really born out at the state. but we're going to start with drew. drew, upper not on the trump bandwagon right off the bat, but you ended up voting for trump. why? >> i lined up with his issues. i'm very close with nick mulvaney, nikki haley, and i'm very proud we elected all very much conservatives. that at least line lines up, and i think trump's agenda, i want to see the health care legislation try to come to a
agreement in the senate. i would like to see us do tax cuts, and that's all thanks to trump pushing hard. >> but as a marketer, you are not a fan the way trump communicates. >> i've been involved in a lot of campaigns over the years. one thing that i'm not happy with right now is the message that we're getting out. i don't think we convey it, and i don't think we let the ground work for different things that we see out in the public realm. i do -- some of his tweeting could be adjusted a little bit. i think it's a good method platform, but i do think they need to look at it a little stronger and make sure that he keeps to the point and serves him in the appropriate way. >> true. thank you very much. let's go over to lee. what's interesting about lee is lee is one of those voters we were talking about before. lee actually voted for bill clinton but now voted for trump. why? >> well, primarily because trump is not a politician. i'm so tired of career politicians running this country and ruining it.
so i chose to go with who did. >> as a goat rancher, that is your job main issue that you're fired up about is the epa and what you view is needless regulations. talk about that. >> not only the epa but all government agencies that are overstepping their bounds. the epa has put into positions some rules and regulations that are strangle holding the use of water on private land and this is not the way things should be run. this is not the way the country was set up. >> lee, thank you for your time. and finally, deborah. deborah, why did you vote for donald trump? >> for this little guy right here. >> and what's that little guy's name? >> this is austin. >> austin, hello. wave to america. now, specifically, why do you -- why are you worried for austin's future. >> i think the country was headed in the wrong direction. we saw a lot of our liberties and treatments being taken away. and i would like that back
again. . >> what is it about donald trump that makes you confident for the future? >> he's a man of his word, and i think his actions are proving that right now. >> austin, do you have anything to say? >> well, you heard it from the youngest voter. austin, thank you very much. deborah lee and drew, thank you very much. great, great diner here in south carolina. steve: absolutely. put the mic right in front of a little kid. very brave man. brian: he had a squawk. we pinned the mic on jillian, and i'm a brave man. >> good morning to you guys. let's start with this. google slashes a record-breaking $2.7 billion fine for giving itself an unfair leg up. the european union hitting the internet search engine for abusing its position steering customers to its own online shopping platform. the fine, the largest antitrust judgment ever follows a seven-year investigation. google is appealing that decision.
sarah palin fighting back the new york times for defamation. the former gop vice presidential candidate claims a recent editorial falsely portrayed her as responsible for encouraging the 2011 shooting of democratic representative gabby giffords. despite running a correction to the report, the times claims no such link existed. well, democrats are apparently so out of touch with rural voters that they've hired someone to teach candidates how to relate. illinois congresswoman just named chairwoman of heartland engagement. she plans to mentor democratic candidates for 2018 on how to connect with voters in middle and rural america. which helped elect president trump into the white house. and this video, this man is lucky to be alive after being hit by a speeding bus. we do want to warn you, you may find this video disturbing. the man struck from behind and struck nearly 20 feet down the street in england seconds
after the crash. look, he's seen standing walking on his own and walks into a pub for a beer. the wife telling the telegraph he's suffering, he's in a lot of pain, he shouldn't be here. no arrests have been made. i mean, i guess at that point if you have a public public right there, and you've just been hit by a bus, what do you do? brian: everyone handles stress differently. steve: the key, though, is because he jumps off, the bus turns. otherwise, he would have been run right over. brian: yeah, if you've been hit by a bus, write us at foxnews.com. ainsley: the bus was turning and then ran into the guy. so the bus driver didn't see the guy walking. steve: all bad. brian: hope he's okay. ice him down if you see him. janice dean, where are you? >> i am outside. look at this. today is the best day to take off work. gorgeous day across the northeast, i just want to make a mention that do do have potential for severe weather. the great lakes in the
northwest. if you know what to do if there's a watch or warning in your neighborhood, speaking of our crowd, where are you from? >> i'm from oceanside, california. >> and you're wishing somebody a 60th anniversary. >> my mom and dad. 60 years of love and inspiration. and we love them so much. >> i hope they're watching right now. what about you? where are you from? >> i currently live in germany. >> why are you in germany? >> my husband's stationed over there. >> is he serving right now? >> yes. he's in afghanistan right now. >> i hope he's watching. shout out to our troops; right? say hi to everybody in the studio, ainsley, brian, and steve, and stay with us for the barbecue. are you going to do that? >> yes. >> i love the smell of barbecue in the morning. happy fourth of july, everybody. wave. what a crowd today. what a crowd. god bless the usa. back inside. ainsley: amen. steve: all right. yep. famous davis is coming up. meanwhile, next on the run

>> as a parent, we're not happy with the verdict. but as americans, i'll side with the judge. ainsley: also accused of murdering his neighbor. faced with death penalty if convicted in that case. and isis fighters are complaining about not being able to get a job after returning to europe. terrorists are unhappy that no one will hire them, despite changing their names. the terrorists say that there is still too much information online, including pictures showing their radical path. oh, cry me a river. brian: we have to speak -- to his last boss and then used drone technology to kill them. that would be an interesting way to handle that. meanwhile, 15 minutes before the top of the hour, talk about out of this world, this year astronaut peggy winston breaking records for the longest time spent in outer space. more than any american in nasa history. steve: and she's still there live from outer space. joining us from the international space station is peggy. peggy, is it good morning,
good afternoon up there. would you explain for our audience right now what a day is like on the international space station because you keep going around the earth, and i can't imagine how many times it's light, it's dark, it's light, it's dark. >> actually, that's great. we go around the earth 16 times in a day, so we're going 17,500 miles an hour. it's an amazing sensation and -- so we get to see a sunrise and a sunset about every 45 minutes. we don't have too many windows on this station, so it's not like it's too disruptive to our work, and we get up at 6:00 a.m. gmt time and go to bed around 9:00 at night and during the daytime, we have a lot of different scheduled activities. ainsley: now, peggy, i understand the president called you to congratulate you. you have the most spacewalks of any woman ever to go to the
international space station, so we want to say congratulations. what was it like getting a phone call in space from the president? >> well, that was very special to get that phone call. it's great when nasa gets acknowledged for some of the things that we're doing up here. and it was just very special. brian: what do you learn about yourself after spending 500 plus days in space? >> well, i do think you learn a lot about yourself. you learn how to live and work in teams, and i've lived up here and worked up here with many different people, and it's interesting how the character changes with each crew mix, so we have a fantastic time figuring that out, figuring out what means something to you, and what we
need to work to strive to make ourselves better to interact better, to get more work done, all of that's an important part of what we do up here. steve: on up a 24th, you surpassed the record for most cumulative time spent in space by a u.s. astronaut it was # 534 days. by the time you come down, it will be over 600 days where you learn to twirl the microphone like that. just out of curiosity because you haven't been on earth for so long, what's the big thing you're really missing about life on earth and having your feet not on the ground? >> well, obviously, you know, having friends and family that you can hug, we can call them on our ip phone or send e-mails. but being there and being able to touch and be with your loved ones is really important. i think probably, though, in general, i miss the ability to cook my own food, you know?
we eat most of our stuff out of packages. and as creative as i try to be with food up here, there's limited number of supplies that we have to make things new and different. so i think that's probably the biggest challenge. and the thing i miss most. i like cooking, and i also like gardening and hobying. i miss that a little bit. i did get the opportunity, though, to grow some lettuce and cabbage, which we did get to eat. ainsley: i think we can all say officially this is the first time we've talked to somebody in space. peggy, thank you for doing this for our country. brian: congratulations on the record. we appreciate it. we'll check in with you again. ainsley: i find myself doing the interview like this. to the side. brian: so cool. meanwhile, next on our run down, something earthly. we're having bar could you for breakfast. ainsley: we're rubbing it in peggy's face. brian: so famous, he's about to be inducted in the barbecue hall of fame. steve: but first, let's check
in with the news hall of fame shannon, previews what happens in the channel in 15 minutes. >> i mean, assist natures and barbecue. brian: that has to be a record. >> we're going to try, though. because you know this new health care bill is heating up. more of them say they're "no" votes, at least for now fresh of the meeting from the president. senator rand paul joins us live. so where does he stand now? and russia and iran, house chair is with us plus, house minority leader on case law finally getting to a vote and why a member of president trump's legal team now says he is demanding an apology from president obama. all coming up top of the hour

than that, we're going to cook a cranberry barbecue sauce this morning. so if you want to help me here. >> sure. absolutely. >> we're going to take cranberries that we have here. >> cranberries is good for thanksgiving, but on the chicken. >> cranberry orange chicken is phenomenal. take some orange juice, yep. put the whole thing in. we'll add some honey, add some barbecue sauce there. brian: so we're making our ow own. >> some sassy barbecue sauce. >> sassy, that's for me. steve: time to wisk. >> if you want to add a little. >> well, hello. been a while since i've seen you. steve: yeah, an hour. >> we're going to jump-start this barbecue. >> never too much.
