[applause] ♪ ♪ we're coming to your city ♪ going to play our guitar ♪ and sing you country song ♪ ainsley: good morning, guys. pete: good morning, ainsley. ainsley: it's great to have you guys on the curvey couch. pete: steve and brian are out but we have tv todd piro. todd: remember the first time you bought me a coffee had had all sugar. we landed from iowa i got two hours of sleep but i'm ready to go. we had an awesome time. wait until you see the stories we did in iowa. ainsley: when will we see them? todd: one tomorrow with the field of dreams and one that makes the plates that go in armor. amazing guys and amazing story. they were recognized by trump one of the made in america top 50.
3:02 am
meet them in a few weeks. ainsley: the president was in ohio yesterday yesterday speaking to a grouch union builders. here is a clip if you missed it. >> i love the smell of a construction site, right? there is something about it my administration is fighting every day to protect and defend and grow american jobs. we are keeping our promise us and the results are in. 3 million new jobs since election day. >> we are knocking the hell out of ice sis coming out of syria very soon. >> did you see roseanne's ratings? mark how big were they? they were unbelievable. over 18 million people. and it was about us. >> america is a nation of pioneers, a nation that accepts no limits, no hardship and never ever gives up. >> anything we can dream, you can build.
3:03 am
pete: that was as usual president trump in usual form. it felt almost like -- it was infrastructure rally felt like a campaign rally as well. very, very well received. this is a guy that can go from 3 million jobs to roseanne. ainsley: i know. he talked about jobs. he talked about building. how building is his strength. he said better than being a president i was always really good at building. he talked about roseanne barr and the ratings. >> this is his element. it's a campaign tile rally. he loves it. the crowd loves it one thing i want to mention it's all with the wall when it comes down to it we go to the diners and talk to the people. what's their number one focus we ask them about jobs and the economy. they say we need the wall. he does need to deliver that. that's why you heard him talking about his big beautiful wall. pete: defoe can you say on it and put out tweets this week showing the beginning of his portion of the construction of it and even saying the defense department could be part of
3:04 am
funds it congress has not gone the way on building the wall. thetics tent i stays focused on talking about tax cuts and jobs and bringing them back and staying laser focused on that will be the key to translating with voters. ainsley: he talked but the wall yesterday and said we have already started building the wall. do you like campaign style rallies? do you wish he would do more of those? pete: we started the top of the show with that. his ability to talk about what happened throughout the week. i'm guessing if you are looking at another channel they are probably talking more and more about investigations. probably not this side of the investigation u of course, the first part of the year was all about russia, russia, russia. now we are getting information that jeff sessions, the attorney general, will be appointing a -- todd, you kind of described a special counsel light. >> diet special counsel. pete: he got a letter from senator grassley and goodlatte and gowdy a month ago have you done enough to look into investigating the
quote
3:05 am
investigators, the fisa abuse? and he finally came back with a response yesterday. and this is the attorney general's response. he appoints -- he is appoint ago man by the name of u.s. attorney general john huber. this is the statement. he said mr. huber is conducting his work from outside the washington, d.c. area. in cooperation with the inspector general. and upon the conclusion of his review, will receive his recommendation as to whether any matters not currently under investigation should be open, whether any matters currently under investigation require further resources or whether any matters merit the appointment of a special counsel. ainsley: people wanted a special counsel because the ig investigating the doj saying livin' this guy might be a great guy is he fair? we need somebody outside of the doj or outside of the fbi to investigate. they were investigating hillary clinton was the first investigation. the second one is this fisa abuse. so republicans were asking for a special counsel to do this. so the attorney general has
3:06 am
said no, no special counsel, there is this guy who you trust, who is going to be an outside source or outside individual who is very fair, who was appointed by obama but has worked for both administrations and for from what we have heard, he seems like a solid guy. todd: solid guy, right. ainsley: many republicans are still complaining because they are saying we still need a special counsel and this is missing the mark. congressman mark meadows was on with laura last night. listen to. this we need to have the special counsel, i disagree with the attorney general. i can tell you tonight. i went through and reviewed some redacted things that were given to our committee. and on seven pages, there were 12 material facts, material facts. not just names, material facts that were omitted by the department of justice. it's time they come clean and give congress what they need. todd: one of the situations where the republican party is split shocker. people like peter king agree
3:07 am
with what sessions said. mark meadows disagrees with it and the i couldn't know lying premise of what the meadow's camp is saying. huber's boss is rod rosenstein. pete: that's a big concern. they look at the fake russian collusion narrative that drove entire special counsel still going on with bob mueller. then you look at all the things that have happened from andy mccabe and lisa strzok and bruce o'er and james comey: we have more evidence we will show new a second. that doesn't merit the special counsel. that seems like inside fbi and doj at the top not rank and file and you are going to investigate yourself? still feels like folks are going to clamor for more. looks like a half measurable from the attorney general not going to satisfactory people. ainsley: imagine if this happened at your place the work. if you had to investigate your boss. would you be fair and could do you that? you want to believe you could but that's tough. pete: you are poking around whether your boss was doing things the wrong way.
3:08 am
ainsley: whether or not you get paid or not getting food on the table and paying for your kids' college it would be important. would it be hard to investigate the agency where you work i think it would be. pete: it would be. yeah u another guy is representative jim jordan. he came out last night with an exclusive set of information that he knows based on what he has seen that andrew andy mccabe actually lied four times in talking about his leaking to the press. listen to what jim jordan says. >> well, we don't know what will come out of that we do know about andrew mccabe he didn't lie just once. he lied four times. he lied to james comey. he lied to the office of professional responsibility, and he lied twice under oath to the inspector general and, remember, this is andrew mccabe, deputy director of the fbi. this is andrew mccabe the text messages between peter strzok and lisa page and insurance policy against donald trump being president
3:09 am
of the united states i it wasn't once or twice or three times, it was four times leaking information to the "wall street journal" about the fbi. ainsley: if that's true, he lied four times and now he is begging you for money. because, remember, he got fired a few days before he was retired. well, his spokesperson, i don't know anyone who has a spokesperson that doesn't have a job. his spoke spokesperson on social media has said go to his go fund me page and give him money to pay for attorney fees. todd: i saw pete earlier on the website donating. pete: fake news. todd: fake news. pete: 340,000 already raised. ed to odd if you believe mr. jim jordan mr. mccabe is accused of bad stuff. pete: he is a cause celeb of the left. james comey feel like they are part of saving the nation just like bob mueller. that's where this support is
3:10 am
coming from. but, you look at a guy like jim jordan saying that. you don't say those things lightly and saying that because he has seen things that people need to see. the inspector general can't ask james comey and andy mccabe questions. is he looking internally. huber doing special counsel light. how much power pull information out of people making decisions at that time and do it under oath? that's what matters and will actually get us to the bottom of whether or not the trump campaign was spied on by political opponents. todd: someone no longer with the campaign. who can do what and when. let's go over to jillian mele with the headlines. jillian: happy good friday to you guys and to you at home as well. let's get you caught up on some of the stories starting with a fox news alert. coalition troops hurt and five others hurt after a roadside bomb explodes in syria. no word on exactly where this happened but it came shortly after a roadside bomb exploded in the town of

3:17 am
russia is further isolating itself following the brazen chemical attack. russia should not be acting like a victim. the only victims in this situation are the two victims in the hospital in the u.k. right now. pete: russian foreign minister sergei lavrov announced yesterday that russia with a woo expel 60 u.s. diplomats from russia for the expulsion of 60 russian diplomats this week. does it mean we are in a cold war standoff with vladimir putin? we turn to retired colonel jim reese. thanks for joining us this morning. what does it mean about the escalation about our confrontation with russia? >> well, pete, good morning. what this really means is we are starting to get in this tat for tat political arena that starts to happen when these issues go to bear. from the u.s. side, what i find very interesting, really in the last year with president trump, all four
3:18 am
elements of national power, the diplomatic, the informational, military, and economic wings of our national power are all working together on this issue. it's really the first time all four elements are working together. but for me, at the end of the day, as this thing starts to move down the road, if we get more and more tension, i do believe that the at the end of the day the relationship between president trump and president putin will figure this thing out for both sides. pete: the accusation of this president has been that he has been soft on putin and soft on russia. maybe even co-including with them what you are saying the last year renewed focus on pushing back. >> it has. i think what president trump is looking at, just like all good commander-in-chiefs do. they take input from their staff. this is the state department. it's treasury, it's the military, dod. it's the cia, everyone is coming to the president saying here's what we need to do. the president is being a good commander-in-chief and
3:19 am
sitting back, agreeing, pushing those forces out. pushing those issues out. making, literally putting the pressure on russia. so, again, the -- our government is really working all together for this russian piece. it's a good piece for us. pete: certainly indeed. you mentioned military as one of the lines in operation in this. in syria we have diversification interests than vladimir putin does. any concern this eventually leads to an aspect of a shooting war or shooting conflict. >> well, i think we also don't -- yes, there is syria and i have been over there a few times and you know, we have got folks over there working to try to put the syrian people back in their cities. so we see these i. but we still have the ukrainian issue where we have forces and other kinds of with the syrians. syria will still continue to be this tinderbox we have to watch. at the end of the day, the
3:20 am
russians and syria are really adults at the table that will make sure this thing continues to go down the road that we don't have conflict. but it is -- there is a lot of tension and especially with the turks up there. russian also keep things in set. pete: we are seeing consequences of it now. hopefully the stare off pays off in the end. thank you for your time. >> yes, sir. pete: you got it a middle school class assigned to lobby congress to change gun laws. does that sound right to you? well, an outraged parent joins us live coming up next. and, hillary clinton just doesn't understand why people want her to go back to the woods. >> i was really struck by how people said that to me, go away, go away. they never said that to any man who was not elected.

3:25 am
quote you are trying to persuade lawmakers to have stricter gun laws to help prevent another school shooting from taking place. ainsley: school district now telling fox news that they don't condone this, teacher's actions, promising it will never happen again. todd: here is william leah police officer and parent of a student at hampton middle school who received the assignment. mr. lee, thank you so much for being with us. like any good parent, you asked your child what do you have for homework tonight? your child said i have to write this paper. when you saw what the assignment was, what were you thinking? >> my biggest concern was what was the intent of the assignment. i find out it didn't have anything to do with what they were supposed to be learning in that social studies class. so that was my biggest concern is what was the intent. it only gave them one perspective from which to write. and that in itself i didn't think was appropriate. but my concern was were
3:26 am
those letters actually going up to someone. ainsley: i was shocked this was happening in the state of georgia. but, good for you for telling that teacher my child will not be participating. what was the teacher's reaction? >> he said it was okay. that my son would not receive any negative grade. ainsley: you know, in this day and age, they are kicking god out of schools. some schools now want the pledge of allegiance out of schools. they are indoctrinating our kids to think a certain way. do you think teachers have a right to force our students to think politically the way that they do? >> no man. thano, ma'am.that was the one ti have an issue with. i didn't think it was appropriate for the teacher to be forcing that kind of opinion on the children and using them to try to persuade lawmakers to enact stricter gun laws. todd: the school district did respond to our request for a statement. they said, quote: the lesson topic was not a part of an approved curriculum. we would never approve of a
3:27 am
politically biased assignment or directive given by a teach. we do not condone the actions that transpired. it has been handled appropriately with the teach tore ensure they know this is not acceptable and won't happen again. what's your spoons to that? >> yes, sir. again, my whole issue if i hadn't brought attention to it, how long would it have gone on or would it have happened prior to that the school is not aware of. that was just my biggest concern do they realize what's going on in the schools. because there was another incidents prior to this one that involved some inappropriate comments by a teacher at the same school. so that was something that me and this parent started communicating about. ainsley: as a police officer, you know, this teacher is asking your child to write a letter to congress or to our lawmakers
3:28 am
asking them to pass tighter gun restrictions. what would have you liked the assignment to be as a police officer? >> well, again, if he was given the opportunity to write from another perspective, then that would have been okay. i just didn't feel it was appropriate just to have the one stance represented. ainsley: one sided. todd: mr. lee, last question from me. do you have any message to parents out there? >> just be vigilant with what your kids are doing in school and what they are being taught and told. because this was, like i said, the first thing i have seen anything like this. i have heard other stories. this is the first time i have seen anything like this. if i wouldn't have asked i would have never known. ainsley: you seem like a very nice polite individual i know you were probably
3:29 am
concerned about going to the teacher. i know the district handled it well and the teacher hopefully will not assign this type of an assignment again. thank you for speaking out and more importantly. >> thank you. ainsley: thank you for being such an amazing individual and keeping our community safe. god bless you. >> thank you. ainsley: you're welcome. a police officer shot inside a barbershop. the insane body camera footage just released that's coming up next. todd: hillary clinton just doesn't understand why people want her to go back there, to the woods. >> i was really struck by how people said that to me, go away, go away. they never said that to any man who was not elected. todd: well maybe diamond and silk can explain. they join us live next. ainsley: make sure to catch legends and lies this week's episode corse the early union set backs on the battlefield. shear a little clip for you. >> mr. president, i'm happy

more than 18 million people watched it this week. the president was -- he ended up calling roseanne barr to tell her what a wonderful job. she tweeted about it saying she likes this president and he supported her. well, sandra burnhard is on the show. she is not conservative. not at all. and she was wondering, she is asking how women, how the two of you could ever support this administration. listen to what she says and then we will get your reaction. >> a lot of women have compromised, given, in you know, gotten married, raised their kids and not had the luxury of being able to think for themselves, don't know where it comes from. i think it's a couple of issues. it's being either under the thumb of your husband or it's the election that was being so offended by hillary clinton and bill clinton's legacy that you turned on her. or feeling inadequate. feeling like how can somebody be so educated. that's threatening to a lot of women.
3:37 am
ainsley: ladies, what's your reaction? we stay at home, we raise our kids and then we vote for someone like this because we are so out of touch? >> first of all, we didn't need anyone feeding us us a narrative we know how to think for ourselves. we went to the polls and put on our thinking cap. we voted for entrepreneurship because we wanted to vote for him. we didn't do it after the fact and put on wit with wussy p and start marchy. for her to say that that's very offensive. i'm not a married woman. i am a sing goal woman, okay? i was not going to vote for no crooked hillary, okay? nobody was going to make me feel guilty. nobody was going to push me in to voting for somebody that we choose not to vote for. >> that's right. >> hillary clinton was a career politician. we didn't want another career fake crooked politician running nothing around here. >> that's right. >> that's why we voted for the businessman. >> congratulations to rose o'donnell. but congratulations to

promises and the results are in 3 million new jobs since election day. unemployment claims are at their lowest level in 45 years, lowest level. 45 years. [applause] ainsley: that is incredible. what does this mean for the economy and for your wallet? todd: joining us to weigh, in host of making money on fox business network charles payne. what do these numbers tell you? >> they tell me we are in an economy that is resurgent and it's an economy that hearkens back to sort of the old american d.n.a. where that can doism is infectious and starting to spread. right now we have a record amount of job openings. we have never had this many job openings ever in the history of this country. what i love is yesterday we had update on michigan sentiment survey. right now three components of it, one they ask how do you feel right now current conditions? they set an all-time high. and all-time high. by the way, it was driven by
3:47 am
the top bottom one 30 of income households. in other words, these are the folks who always feel like they are being left behind. these are the folks who never feel like this is the best of times. and they are the most optimistic ones out there. those are the people that by the way that have been overlooked for so long by so many. those are the people that propelled president trump into the white house. pete: forgotten mental and women are feeling like they are being remembered and optimistic about that. pete: any concern talks of terrors and trade is that dampening that perception. >> dampening for top one third who love the status quo and don't want the president to rock the boat. this is what i will say. the sort of narrative. i say this every time. every country at this very moment in the world uses tariffs. and by the way, the strongest hottest economies in the world, have the biggest tariffs in the world. china, india, south korea, so we saw this week we were able to rewrite our deal with south korea. we doubled the amount of cars that we can send there. they will cut down on the amount of steel that they
3:48 am
export to us. we keep our tariff by the way of 25% pickup trucks. so people have to understanding if we don't push back now, the economic momentum in these countries is so powerful that at some point in a not too distant future, china will have a stronger economy than america. if you don't think we have leverage now when we do have leverage, imagine if we wait until then and start to have to beg for better fair trade. ainsley: that's going to bring more and more jobs. because all those industries are going to start coming back to america. >> listen, we want global prosperity. we'll want the world to do very well. this week we saw the first chinese solar company say hey we are going to open up a plant in america. how did this happen? president trump put a 30% tariff on solar panels. ainsley: the president was speaking with the plan to boost infrastructure in ohio. how are the stocks responding. >> stock market great run. toughest month for it in a long time. a lot of this is headline stuff. hey, the president's attorney is out. that's a constitutional

pete: in a recent interview, pope francis said hell does not exist. saying, quote, they are not punished, those who repent obtain the forgiveness of god and enter the forgiveness. those who do not repent and cannot therefore be forgiven. disappear. there is no hell. there is the disappearance of sinful souls. ainsley: doesn't this fly in the face of everything the catholic church has taught for 2,000 years? here to make sense of it is fox news religion contributor father jonathan morris. what in the world?
3:54 am
>> we have got some bad news and good news. let's start with the bad news. pete. the bad news, they are laughing because the bad news is that hell still exists and, no priest, no pastor, no pope, no journalist can change that we know that from the bible. that's the bad news. i texted last night is it true it's not real? >> are we good now? are there no consequences to actions. >> that's the bad news. hell still exists and pope francis believes that the good news is not everything that we have been taught and learned for 2,000 years has been changed. in fact, nobody can change that. it either is or it isn't. and what we see in the bible is very clear about hell. the vatican has since said this reporter, who is 93 years old, who is a professed atheist and who has very publicly said when he does interviews he takes no notes and records nothing.
3:55 am
ainsley: what he perceives the pope to say when he doesn't even understanding the religion. how do we expect him to write a piece that's fair? >> it's interesting why pope francis is meeting with this atheist journalist who is very well known in italy, it's because he is trying to work with him. and my guess is when they talked about hell, he said, you know, hell is not a place where the big bad god throws bad people. people who sin. no, hell is a place where we decide to go by saying i don't want the forgiveness of god. that has always been the teaching of christianity. hell is not a place where god throws people or sends people we send ourselves by saying i don't want to live in the presence of god. todd: father, i don't want to get to good friday. today is good friday. i find a lot of times non-christians don't understanding the significance of good friday and easter. they think the biggest day on our calendar is christmas when the religion calendar says it really have good friday and holy saturday and easter. >> it's confusing, why is it good friday? it's the worst day of the year in many ways?
3:56 am

[speaking foreign language] >> a very famous hymn. oh happy fault gained for us. happy fault that our sin can actually become something that is a reason for great celebration because god is bigger than sin and death. >> it's good because it saves us from the pit of hell which does still exist which you confirmed. >> yes. and that's bad news for you, peter. pete: he said it thank you, father, appreciate it love having you. attorney general jeff sessions not appointing a second special counsel, but he does name a federal

4:06 am
been spinning a tale. spinning a tale that he was there to save the world from president trump because president trump is going to privatize the v.a. and try shut it all down and push the vets out to the private sector. that is not true. even the "new york times" this morning quotes -- talks about my former organization that i ran concerned veterans for america saying our goal was to privatize the v.a. fake news, not true. what the political appointees inside the v.a. were trying to do with shulkin was make sure that secretary shulkin was actually true to what this president said he would do on the campaign trail. which is simply this. which is not privatization. veterans get a choice. either go to the v.a. because it's giving you quality care or can you choose because you are smart enough to choose for yourself to go to a private provider if you feel like you are going to get better care there and the dollars follow you in either direction. there are cost effective ways to give a veteran private choice, which is not privatization. so the secretary is trying to -- he wrote a op-ed in the "new york times." he has been all over tv talking about it he was trying to fighter political appointees trying to stay
4:07 am
true to the president's cause. and, instead, he was the one that got fired and ritefully so he. ronny jackson the new pick over there, he has a great opportunity to rebuild those relationships. todd: shulkin 100 to none. some political movement going on. there is a reason democrats liked him. pete: he passed 100 to none. threatening to nobody. started to go in and defend the status quo at the v.a. he made his own mistakes like wimbledon tickets and travel he shouldn't have taken. never about that. he was trying to stop the president. the president has an agenda. ronny jackson will get an opportunity to advance it. ainsley: love the idea of choice. that's so important. a lot of v.a. hospitals are great. i remember the v.a. hospital when everything was coming to light. did i some stories out in arizona, i believe, where so many people were on the list waiting for appointments. and they were dying in the process. pete: of course. ainsley: taking months to go see a doctor. by the time they saw the

doctor the cancer had spread. too late. having choice is great. todd: had you a choice nut 2016 presidential election. you elected president donald j. trump. hillary clinton doesn't seem to be able to get over that. and she had an interesting take on why. take a listen. >> the election was pretty traumatic. [laughter] a lot of angst and second-guessing and finger pointing. oh my god, did you see how shill she was. i took a lot of long walks in the woods. [laughter] you know, drank my share of chardonnay. i was really struck by how people said that to me. go away, go away. they never said that to any man who was not elected. i am really committed to speaking out and doing what i can to have a voice in the debate about where our country is going. pete: you know, we are going to host the weekend show on saturday and sunday. we have to pull some tape.

i'm pretty sure people said al-gore, your time is up. hey, mitt romney. your time suspect. plenty of folks who have run for office. folks have said it's time to turn the page. you had all the clinton years and run for president twice and lose twice, it might be time for the democrats to turn the page. and that doesn't make anyone sexist. ainsley: she is saying i want to talk about the direction of this country. talk about the direction of the country. don't be the victim. every time she speaks it's about what happened wrong and blaming someone else. okay. move past that. the election -- the people spoke, you are not the president. so, modify on and talk about something else. todd: the men she mentioned are actually referring to policy. to your point, all she is doing is complaining. this isn't a man/woman thing. ainsley: victim mentality. todd: she is talking about i lost becaus. pete: because it was going to be the clinton foundation, we know what happened to that doocy. they were using it for all the wrong reasons, making a bunch of deals. nothing to fall back on. went on a book tour and didn't sell many books.

4:18 am
serious. i believe it's going to be right after the ig report comes out that we're going -- that the attorney general, jeff sessions is going to make a recommendation whether or not to assign a special counsel, special prosecutor. pete: sarah, you say the ig has already made criminal referrals. is that on the hillary clinton email server investigation or looking into fisa abuses? >> it's looking into fisa abuses is what i have been told. this is what huber is looking at as well. huber is not just looking at the fisa abuses. he is also looking at the hillary clinton foundation as well as the uranium one issue. and he is going to be making recommendations on all of these. ainsley: okay. democrats are feeling sorry for andrew mccabe. they are setting up a go fund me page. he has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to pay for his attorney fees. they put a cute little picture of there of andrew mccabe with his pretty family say you would feel sorry for him because he was fired a few days before he was able to retire and get that pension. will you please explain to our viewers why he was fired exactly, how he was caught
4:19 am
lying four times? is that right under oath? >> yeah, he was caught lying four times under oath. twice directly to the inspector general. and then he came back and said well, he misstood. he tried to call back. he tried to clarify. look, they are not buying this. there is a lot more here than just the lies. the attorney general isn't going to make and the inspector general isn't going to make any kind of recommendations or investigations based on just an accidental slip of the tongue. there is a lot more evidence here. they are looking at it very carefully and mccabe is not the only one. there are other people within the fbi that they are taking a hard look at. a lot of people have asked me why are peter strzok and lisa page still at the fbi? considering everything that's out there? well, have yo you have to assume that they may be giving information to the inspector general as well as to the doj. pete: sarah, it's speculation. we don't know names at this point. but someone like andrew mccabe could be one of those criminal referrals from the ig hingtsly? >> hypothetically, absolutely, yes. ainsley: what are your

you got a letter from the white house? >> i was impressed, and i was like wow. it was cool. and i was like really happy. because my dad might actually get a kidney. ainsley: yeah, i know. trey, it seems like the president is working behind the scenes trying, i guess, to connect with doctors and get you on more lists or get you that kidney. how does it make you feel knowing that? >> i truly feel blessed. it's really the only way to say it. it's been a prayer answered, that's for sure. and a prayer by many people. i know there has been a lot of people pulling for me and i have had a lot of support since this letter. and, you know, it's basically made me go from feeling helpless to like i actually got a chance to get a kidney. and it's really made me smile again. ainsley: you have been on the kidney transplant list for three years? five hour dialysis every other day? >> yeah.
4:29 am
and actually i did at home dialysis for a year. and i was doing it for up to 10 hours a day. and it was every day through the week. and i switched to peritoneal dialysis at the clinic. so i go to clinic three times a week for four and a half hours on the machine which, you know, keeps me out for about five hours. but luckily, you know, i have a really good clinic and guy in morganton and those girls there are unbelievable. ainsley: i know you are a single parent and ford needs his dad. so we will all be praying for you. please keep us up to date. hopefully the president can intervene and get you that kidney. we do want to announce that there is a go fund me page if people would like to donate to you and your family. it is just go depen fund me.com

4:37 am
stocks are rallying as the president announces his plan to boost infrastructure. my question for you is it seems infrastructure is something that benefits the whole country. why do dems continue to play politics and not root for the u.s.a. it seems in this regard? >> well, it's an excellent question why infrastructure can't being done more easily. you would think it's the most nonpartisan issue one can imagine. the air traffic control system built for a time when we had about 100,000 passengers annually. we're now close to 1 billion airline passengers annually. and we all know what it's like for those tarmac waits. the fact that you see many improvements can be made to security, to timeliness, less hassle for the passengers. also, think about 50,000 bridges or so that are in disrepair. the 40,000 or so water breaks we have every year. the list goes on and on. people see it as a tangible problem in their community. what is this president doing about it? he is asking the democrats
4:38 am
to come to the table. and in the omnibus last week, there was $21 billion toward infrastructure spending. that's a good start. many administrative actions and fixes this president can take and looking at very closely. acting on two or three major points to his infrastructure vision, which we think every republican and democrat should get behind. one is his $1.5 trillion in spending. and it's meant to incentivize also pieces that are mentioned incentivize local communities and private actors, organizations to come and give money as well. number two, it's reducing this crazy permitting process we have. sometimes 8, 10 years. incessant amounts of public comment period and then get it down to one or two years. the president is a builder. he is accustomed to as we know the trumpian way of on time and under budget to deliver major projects. so, we certainly hope democrats will come to the
4:39 am
table. this should be a nonpartisan issue. there are many things this president will do. his speech yesterday really showed what a job creator infrastructure is as well. and we coming hot on the heels of his massive tax cut, historic tax cuts, his workforce development, skills education, initiatives. all of this blends together. and it means at the time for infrastructure improvements are here. we certainly hope people won't just look at this through the political lens and will listen to their constituents who are saying the potholes, the bridges in disrepair. the traffic hassles. all of that this president wants to tackle it even though we know the local communities know best how to fix it in their areas. pete: you mentioned how infrastructure should be nonpartisan. other thing nonpartisan our justice system. we have seen abuses in the fisa process under the observed. a lot of the calls from members of congress to potentially appoint a second special counsel while a response to a letter yesterday from the attorney general says he will not be appointing a second special counsel to investigate fisa
4:40 am
abuses. instead nominating an attorney john huber to look at it from the outside and work with the ig. is that enough for the white house, the outside john huber to work with the ig? or would you like to see a second special counsel? >> well, based on everything that we see publicly, including on this network on a daily basis. there is no question that more information needs to come forward. there is an inspector general's report come soon. everybody read these texts. there were people at the top involved in an investigation who obviously had political points of view that they were not shy about expressing and, frankly, acting pop it seems. so, having this prosecutor take a fresh look at everything that we know and could know is a very positive development. i respect the attorney general's decision. i have also noted that you have had people like sara carter, congressman meadows, congressman jordan last night on a different program on your network. i believe laura ingraham's
4:41 am
program coming forth and giving us more information. the question for america remains. if we are in investigation mode in washington, d.c., this one seems like quite a right one. ainsley: why was john huber selected? he is a guy that list out in utah. what's the significance? >> you have to ask the attorney general that. ainsley: it seems bizarre. ains. >> i read the attorney general's letter last night. four or five pages long. it's a public document. your viewers can take a look at it and understand the attorney general's reasoning. i have faith this will be handled in a way that more information will be forthcoming. we respect the 25,000 or so rank and file men and women in the fbi. but there is very little doubt now shah shenanigans and untoward conduct was being had a way that rise to the level of continued investigation. pete: certainly seems like the evidence is found even more so on that abuse than ever was russian collusion that justified an entire special counsel. we will stay on it for sure.
4:42 am
another aspect of all of this is hillary clinton. and she has not gone away, as you know. she, yesterday, had some words to say about why she lost the election and shouldn't go away. listen. >> i was really struck by how people said that to me. you know, go away. go away. they never said that to any man who was not elected. i am really committed to speaking out and doing what i can to have a voice in the debate about where our country is going. pete: so why still those types of explanations? >> well, let me just say, you brought her up. i didn't. topic today. she is wrong comparing herself to those male candidates, republican, democratic, who lost presidential elections as well. they were much more gracious about it and as for wanting to be part of the conversation, the only conversation she is having these days is about her. and the 2016 election when you have got democrats wanting to move forward off
4:43 am
of her. look at her public comments and in to 2018. so this whole oh, whoa is me, i'm a victim of sexism and tha that misoggism. the fact is that hillary clinton is still talking about her and an election that happened a year and a half ago ahead of the next election. i also took note that it was publicly reported she got about $25,000 for that speech, woo! she needs to get 10 times that, folks. 10 times that. she was giving speeches before she lost her second presidential election. 5,000 -- $5 a person. and so i think if she wants to be part of the national conversation, she should infrastructure, opioids, taxes. many conversations to be had. i don't see her out there talking about anything beyond herself.

todd: welcome back house up for sale in california. but, buyer beware, there is a big catch. the seller wants to block trump supporters from buying it. is this even legal? let's bring in fox news legal analyst bob massi also the host of the property man. and, bob, when studying real estate constituencies in law school voting for trump contingency. this could be legal, right? >> under federal law it's legal, yes california, todd, has a specific law, civil rights law that, in fact, this could be a violation. the federal law, i actually be candid with you i emailed judge napolitano because is he so brilliant in this area to make sure what i was
4:48 am
seeing i was seeing. apparently no doubt under the california law there could be a problem for this woman because they basically have set this up that you cannot do something like that. so we will see what happens. todd: what's interesting about that who fights these battles, imagine the aclu trump voter who wants to buy a house? >> what's the over and under on that, todd? it's going to be interesting to see where they discriminate against, isn't it in another administration or something else, they would be all over the place i was surprised about that how quiet it's been on that issue. i think, you know, the other comenel tear, todd, it's remarkable to me how much disdain people have. what's wonderful about our country can you do these kinds of things but at the same time it's remarkable that somebody has that much disdain that they say, you know what? i'm not selling to somebody who supports trump. under california law, there could be a problem.
4:49 am
todd: bob, what's so fascinating about that. if you know california, sacramento area is in the central valley. value valley of california is one of the few areas where you are going to find republicans. what she is basically doing here, she is slashing her buying base. >> oh, she narrowed down her market. there's no question about it that whatever it was has been narrowed down. that's something that i always find interesting about this is whenever all these different issues come up, it's like nobody voted for trump. he is the president, guys. and even in california, in this area, i think, todd, it was like 31% of the votes there. i mean, he did very, very well. todd: 35%. >> as a result, yeah, she lowered the marketplace for herself and that's too bad. what's going to be interesting though is to see if california does anything. i don't think so. todd: bob, what's your final take away on this? >> well, first of all, i did read a legal expert yesterday said it may be a gray area and freedom of
4:50 am
speech. i think we have to understand that we are living in a time where people get to that point where they are seeing i'm not selling because of political preference. in most states, that's going to be legal. but in some states like california, there's a consequence. todd: the gray area is why lawyers get rich litigating the gray area. bob massi. >> oh, come on, man. come on, todd, it's easter. todd: tune in to the property man 8:30 tonight on the fox business network. bob massi as always, a pleasure. have a great easter weekend. >> happy easter. todd: state department demand touristst social media history before letting them in to the u.s. dr. sebastian goo gorka. bentley suv. the price tag? you won't believe it ♪ life in the price lane ♪ life in the fast lane
