experience campaign aides, strategists say that rumored candidates are preparing early hoping to get a jumpstart on what could be a very large field of candidates, jillian. julie: president trump heading to new hampshire today for the first time since taking office to unveil his plan to fight the opioid crisis. >> the only way to solve the drug problem is through toughness, catch a drug dealer, they don't even put him in jail, think of it, you kill one person, you get the death penalty in many states, these people are killing our kids and they are killing our families and we have to do something. jillian: the white house confirming death penalty on drug dealers, is this what we need? our next guest just introduced own bill to combat opioid use, congressman masrsha blackburn, tell us what's in your bill.
2:17 am
>> senator partman must have it in the senate and i have it in the house, this bill is on the work that we started, the year before last putting hundreds of millions of dollars, a billion new dollars into education, prevention, treatment, recovery, money to our first responders, money to put into veterans clinic, pregnant women, babies and trying to make certain that all the way through this system that we are getting the resources that are needed. this is a heartbreaking crisis and i will tell you, one death is heartbreaking but when you have death every 15 minutes, it really is a national tragedy. jillian: how important do you think it's important to be strong on penalties? >> it's imperative. that's why we have penalties for drug distributors and manufacturers because this is something where we are losing as
2:18 am
i said one life every 15 minutes and this is one of the reasons that's imperative for the president to be tough on this. jillian: well, he will be talking about this and we expect him in new hampshire to be talking about this. let's take a look some of the ways he plans to combat, starting by cutting supply of elicit drugs, securing the border, shutting down online sales and seize-related assets, doj will seek the death penalty as we mention against drug traffickers where it is appropriate, that's your thought on that? >> much of this is embodied in our bill and also in the 26 separate bills we will be taking in committee tomorrow and wednesday and the reason you need to stiffen the penalties and work with both the the prescription side and the elicit side is our law enforcement -- when i'm talking to law enforcement in tennessee, they tell me not only is it the pills but also heroin, meth, cocaine.
2:19 am
jillian: you're not just talking about one thing. >> all of it is flooding our streets, this is an issue that's gotten away from us and as a wife and a mother and a friend, when you talk with people whose families are being ravaged, they need to resources and this is one that has gotten away from us and i was talking with a drug court judge that i worked with back when i was in the state senate in tennessee and he said, marsha, this is different, putting the money for law enforcement and for medically-assisted treatment into our bill gets it to these vunls that are really fighting this and the president is doing this, the president is right to fix the death penalty, he is right to push to get these resources out there so we can get ahead of this and stop it. jillian: thank you very much for joining us congresswoman,
2:20 am

i'm mark and i quit smoking with chantix. i tried, um, cold turkey. i tried the patches. i was tired and i was fed up. i wanted to try something different. for me, chantix really worked. along with support, chantix (varenicline) is proven to help people quit smoking. chantix reduced my urge to smoke. when you try to quit smoking, with or without chantix, you may have nicotine withdrawal symptoms. some people had changes in behavior or thinking, aggression, hostility, agitation, depressed mood, or suicidal thoughts or actions with chantix. serious side effects may include seizures, new or worse heart or blood vessel problems, sleepwalking, or allergic and skin reactions which can be life-threatening. stop chantix and get help right away if you have any of these. tell your healthcare provider if you've had depression or other mental health problems. decrease alcohol use while taking chantix. use caution when driving or operating machinery. the most common side effect is nausea.
2:22 am
quitting was one of the best things that i ever did. ask your doctor if chantix is right for you. many insurance plans cover chantix for a low or $0 copay.

president trump's voters. >> ongoing pressure to vote the way that your husband, your boss, your son, whoever believes you should. jillian: carley shimkus with fox news headlines 24/7 siriusxm 115 here with social media responding to her. >> good morning, after a week of widespread backlash and blaming her election loss on white women who thereon how their husbands are voting, hillary clinton took to facebook to apologize writing in part, trump's message was dark and backwards looking, i don't need to list the reasons but the foundation of his message make america great again suggests that to be great we have to go back to something we are no longer, i never accepted that and never will. i understand how some of what what i said upset people and can
2:25 am
be misinterpreted. no disrespect to any individuals or group and i want to look to the future as much as anybody. that apology being met with a whole lot more resistance, kelly on twitter says, when you're in a hole, it's probably good to stop digging. another twitter use -- writes, she always says this about about trump voters that she was misunderstood, no, she meant every word of what she said. there's been a lot of discussion about democrats who are distancing themselves from hillary clinton after making this comment. the latest illinois senator dick durbin who called her comments not helpful. rob: yeah, maybe the funniest person on the planet, at least at one time, jim carrie, comedian has come rather bizarre as he's gotten older, he's a bit of a bohemian artist. carley: quite dark. after tweeting the picture of a bloody student lying on american flag in response to the parkland
2:26 am
school shooting, he is under fire once again for tweeting another drawing, he post posted this with caption, this is a portrait of so-called christian whose only purpose in lie is to lie for the wicked monster, he did not name subject but many believe it's white house huckabee sanders, one twitter user says, they are accusing him of bullying including this twitter user, jim carrie is a bully and has no class and too much time on his hands. sarah sanders could care less what he does, she's awesome. people who like sanders don't like the drawing and like you said, rob, a lot of what he tweets now are the very dark politically inspired drawings that he's creating. rob: but we will never forget dumb and dumber. >> no.
2:27 am
jillian: the left is rushing into help after he was fired for breaking the law, are we suppose today feel sad that he's not getting full retirement at age 50? that debate is coming up next. rob: forget about smooth criminals, this one is quite clumsy, the suspect caught on camera getting stuck in a sliding glass door and it don't get much worse. it's 6 am. 40 million americans are waking up to a gillette shave. and at our factory in boston, more than a thousand workers are starting their day building on over a hundred years of heritage, craftsmanship and innovation. today we're bringing you america's number one shave at lower prices every day. putting money back in the pockets of millions of americans. as one of those workers, i'm proud to bring you gillette quality for less, because nobody can beat the men and women of gillette. gillette - the best a man can get.

2:31 am
james, former fbi assistant director is calling out former agency, he says hillary clinton was protected by top officials throughout the investigation. >> i think we have ample facts revealed to us from the house that high-ranking people throughout the government, high-ranking people had a plot to not have hillary clinton, you know, indicted so that she could remain the flawed candidate that she was which in my view was stupidity and they also had -- and even this peter strzok guy talked about this, backup plan to basically frame donald trump. that's what's been going on, the whole thing in my view, it's total phoney. rob: still missing hillary clinton's 33,000 emails from her private server. jillian: president trump waiting for public response from north korea after accepting invitation
2:32 am
to meet face to face with kim jong un, invitation that shocked south korean officials. >> i think we were all quite surprised by -- by the -- the readiness of that decision. i think it was an extremely courageous decision on the part of president trump, we believe the north northan leader is taking stock. jillian: first time the u.s. president has met with north korean leader, the time and place of the meeting has not been announced. president trump may pull out of iran nuclear deal in months according to senator bob corker who said the deal likely won't survive past may. >> right now it doesn't feel that it's going to be extended. i think the president will likely move away from it unless european counterparts really come together on framework and it doesn't feel to me that they are. jillian: former u.s. special forces agrees not seeing a
2:33 am
future for the deal. >> the europeans are quibbling, the french are taking the lead and are willing to make some positive moves and the brits are kind of neutral, so all in all, no, they are not getting enough done and consequently in the absence of a signed deal with all three of them on board prior to that may 12th deadline, the deal is done. >> president trump has called the obama deal a disaster in the trump and has repeatedly threatened to leave it. >> okay, the president railing against reports that fired fbi deputy director andrew mccabe, took notes of their conversations, the president saying he never saw mccabe write down any messages calling them fake memos in a tweet, the question this morning is why are democrats rushing to defend mccabe, the man at the center of a corrupt investigation, here now to debate that is liberal political commentator wendy and former press secretary for house republican whip roy blunt, amy,
2:34 am
wendy, i want to start with you, it's peculiar that there is this rush to help andrew mccabe in this situation, you have the office, ofciónal responsibility at the fbi which is made of career-fbi agents that made the decision to tell jeff sessions, hey, i think you should fire and drew mccabe, i don't understand and a lot of people don't understand why there's such sympathy for him from the left? >> yeah, i think that's a good point and opr has came up and said based on investigation he should be fire. it's important to note here to fire from 26 hours of retirement is not only mean spirited but rudely and vengeance, it's not a matter of opinion but a matter of fact and we can see both sides of the aisle whether or not he should be fired. we see on the other side, rubio saying that he wouldn't have
2:35 am
done it that way. that's a matter of opinion. but what we have to understand here is that whether or not it is political, that's a whole other conversation and based on how the president coronetted to attack mccabe through twitter you can say that it was rooted in a political call action. rob: it did come off as rather cruel although it might have been the end result anyway. when mccabe came out with the statement and basically tried to make it sound like it was another trump assault on the fbi, that was rather fascinating considering like we just said that the fbi are the ones who recommended that mccabe be fired, what did you make of that statement? >> you know, i think if you look at that statement and if you look at the actual topic of the pension, think about it, he's about to make more money with the book advance than he ever would with this pension, i think you are seeing democrats and academia lining up to help him out to get him through the spot. continue to pay attention to this because, i think, you will see, hey, he can have a media
2:36 am
contributor slot in a week or two, i think this is way bigger than the pension conversation. rob: let's go back, wendy, do you think that there's -- does he have credibility at this point, does andrew mccabe have credibility, it almost sounds like a conspiracy theory, a wild conspiracy theory, an assault on the fbi, i don't know how he gets there from what we know, where does he make that kind of accusation, how does he get to that? >> well, i think it's important that we all wait to make judgment until we see the inspector general's report because that's what's going underscore what happened and what they saw to make this decision, but again, i think what's really important here as far as mccabe is concerned, whether he does get media contributorship or book deal, we have to make sure that our democracy is not one that's been torn apart, so we want to know that, you know, if you have a public servant, intelligence officer, we are not painting you with a broad brush but if you did some sort of indiscretion,
2:37 am
maybe you should be let go, but again, this is not to say that all individuals in the fbi or the cia for that matter are bad people, no, these are life-long career servants and deserve to be treated with respect. rob: a number of democrats rushed into offer mccabe some sort of a job trying to help him get that pension, should we be trying to help somebody get a pension when his colleagues at the fbi have -- have said that they think he should be fired? >> if you look at this, this has turned into political talking point and run in the news cycle for the day and a half, of course, they are lining up to offer positions. the more this stays in the news, they talk about how close he was for the pension, we will continue to talk about it another two or three days in the news cycle. rob: probably true, guys, thank you so much for coming on this morning. >> thank you. jillian: turning now to extreme weather, parts of southern california bracing for more
2:38 am
devastating mud slides. rob: that's right, two storms expect today hit this week, bringing up to an inch of rain an hour in some areas. jillian: senior meteorologist janice dean is live with more of what's to come, hey, janice. janice: you didn't talk about the potential for snow in the northeast, are you ignoring it altogether? rob: we will let you do it. janice: okay. let's take a look at at it, you can see where it's cold enough for snow across the northern here and we have warm unstable air across the southeast leading to potential of tornadoes, really the worst potential outbreak that we've had since the beginning of the year, so let's take a look at it, we have the radar, we have the instability, we have the moisture, we have the sheer and upper levels of atmosphere and the severe threat including large hail and damaging winds and even large destruction tornadoes in the area that you see in orange, all of those ingredients will come together for the potential of maybe severe weather outbreak, all of the areas in green, yellow and
2:39 am
orange, you need to be outlook for and then my friends, two areas of low pressure coming across the mid atlantic tuesday and wednesday, the potential per big snow totals across areas west of dc, towards philly and new york on wednesday, here is one computer models just to let people know they have to be on alert, we will be tracking it. yesterday this time it was showing the storm offshore and not a big deal, now we are thinking more of on shore problem with more winter and tomorrow is the first day of spring. jillian: it doesn't feel like it. [laughter] rob: you will have to adjust fist day of spring, rarely nice on january 21st. jillian: sanctuary showdown on california city now bighting against liberal state's open border policies, our next guest legal expert calls it bold move, why she say it is fed could soon get an ally. rob: james comey's book not out yet but topping the best-seller's list, cryptic
2:40 am
message for president trump. jillian: chick-fil-a worker who said customer appreciation to a whole new other level, the story will make your day when "fox & friends first" continues. zach! talk to me. it's for the house. i got a job. it's okay. dad took care of us.

bp's natural gas teams use smart app technology to share data from any well instantly. so they can analyze trends and stop potential problems in their tracks. because safety is never being satisfied and always working to be better.
2:42 am
2:43 am
jillian: good morning and welcome back, southern california city is voting today on whether or not they will exempt themselves from the liberal state's new sanctuary law. rob: law went into effect january 1st, limits cooperation between law enforcement and federal immigration authorities which, of course, defy it is federal government, here to weigh in attorney in california rnc committee woman harmith, thank you so much for coming on this morning, we do appreciate it. outside of los angeles, california, kind of la, bold move that they are making, tell us about it.
2:44 am
>> so lose alomitos outside of orange county, basically the premise of this is that all of these members of the city council believe that because they sworn oath to the united states constitution and the laws and federal law is supreme on immigration issues as many courts have ruled that it's natural for them to say that they have to honor federal law and they cannot be put in the position by the state of california of defying federal law in favor of this lawless open border sanctuary state policy. jillian: jeff sessions spoke about this and has been pretty outspoken about this as president trump, jeff sessions was out there earlier this month, earlier in march in california talking about sanctuary cities, let's hear from him. >> as attorney general, i have been shocked, really, by the actions of certain judges and courts that we've dealt with who
2:45 am
failing to respect the constitutional responsibilities of the executive and the legislative branches. these branches are coequal, the court is not superior. jillian: do you think that lose -- los alomitos has a chance and others will follow? >> the reason the city is taking the position is that one of the parts of the sanctuary rules is that employers in the district are not allowed to cooperate with ice agents in giving information about employees and this is a city where there are a lot of federal contractors, government contractors, subcontractors who actually have an obligation under those contracts to answer questions from the federal government regarding their employees, so i suspect if this resolution or ordinance passes tonight, the next step is likely to be sort of action from the attorney general of california and i suspect the city is likely to get the support of certainly other cities and jurisdictions here in california as well as
2:46 am
perhaps the federal government, so it is sort of setting up a showdown, i don't expect anything to change legally to change overnight? rob: okay, highly politicized deal in california, sanctuary city debate rolls on, thank you so much for coming on in this morning. >> my pleasure. rob: some of the president's biggest critics throwing full support behind antisemitic leader louis farrakhan. >> when they have a guy who calls hitler a great man and who by definition is antisemite and eight democrats who have ties with them, they are silent. rob: bizarre story and the rally today that suddenly has democrats scrambling to distance themselves from this controversial leader of the nation of islam. jillian: first let's check in with steve doocy to see what's coming up on "fox & friends". good morning, steve. >> good morning, rob, good morning, jillian, good morning, america, our first guest today
