championship. good! >> we have a slogan that we say worship, work, and win. ♪ ♪ ed: worship, work and win. pete: new slogan of "fox & friends weekend thank you, sister jean. you don't need to work. we will work. win, that's probably what loyola, chicago is going to do today. ed: final four starts. pete: sister jean. ed: kansas against villanova. four teams left. big night and then the championship on monday night. you are going to be here all morning because we have all kinds of news.
3:02 am
abby: guess what else is today national tater t tot day. every time i wake up i know they are doing something fun. pete: tacho replacing nash knows. >> tater tots with cheese on top. nachos or tatchos. abby: we have a lot of fun things ahead including d.n.a. results we are all looking forward to. ed: for me. i don't know what is going to happen. they told me there is a surprise. abby: you never want that. pete: who is ed related to. ed: we will find out. abby: a lot of news coming out as there always is on a saturday morning. pete: difference of opinion and perspective between that guy and the man on the left
3:03 am
andy mccabe and the guy on the right james comey. a report came out by the office of professional responsibility used as part of deputy director's andy mccabe's firing. includes testimony from director comey that conflicts with what mccabe has publicly said. so there continues to be differences of opinion. but there is a lot of things that have been said under oath that has implications. abby: this goes back to an article in the "wall street journal" that was out in january of 2016 where mccabe, i guess, provided some leaks or allowed some leaks to come from the fbi. and james comey saying i don't remember this happening. ed: correct. abby: there might be emails provide proof what's going on. the bigger story because there are so many details in all of this, you fbi and work in d.c. this should be the most trans parent of all. there should never be any questioning. ed: they are supposed to be the independent arbiters the
3:04 am
umpires if you will. that's what president trump has been saying the whole dime i'm not attacking law enforcement. i'm saying that we need honest, fair people who are not politicized in the management of the fbi. this is not about the men and women who protect us and keep us safe. jim jordan the republican congressman was on with laura ingraham a couple nights ago and saying this stems from the fact that andrew mccabe lied at least four times. four times with investigators and at least two times he was under oath. so fbi agents, of all people, are supposed to be upholding the highest standards. highest ethical standards in integrity. clearly the accusations are that did not happen. and the other issue here is that his testimony contradicts james comey who is supposed to be his buddy, the number one and number two at the fbi. maybe they had dulin dueling people mows when they talked to president trump. if they wrote everything
3:05 am
down and have exactly what president trump said. how are they conflicting. pete: this is why whether it's the outside counsel or special counsel you feel like you need somebody from the outside. maybe the inspector general can do it but feels like something more is needed. abby: when he was in the office he didn't write anything down. if it did happen it took place after the meetings took place. who knows what was said in that office if you weren't writing it at the time. still a lot of the questions remain we don't have the answers to. there is a lot of question and miscommunication it sounds like from one of the highest dentals in our government that should never be the case. ed: big questions overnight in california where the governor jerry brown has issued preeaster pardons for wait for it five illegal immigrants who are felons facing deportation. i remember him doing something similar around christmas as well. jerry brown. a very liberal governor out there. abby: something about the holidays. ed: he wants to show mercy.
3:06 am
show mercy toward people who maybe have committed a misdemeanor and are now rehabbed. pete: wrongly accused. abby: move on to live a better life. look at some of the facts surrounding the people that have been pardoned, these felons, kidnapping and robbery. badly beating his wife. threatening a crime with intent to terrorize. dealing drugs. these are not people that maybe, you know, did something that put them behind bars but really they -- ed: maybe they should have been deported. maybe they should go pack from wherever they came from. if they are dealing drugs in america to our children, they are not the folks you want to pardon. pete: apparently we are being told they can still be deported now because they are here illegally. ed: will they be deported? pete: probably not because it's a sanctuary state. totality of the perspective of california is that law lawlessness in the law of the land. being legal doesn't matter.
3:07 am
you are being differential treatment. we are going into easter. we all need a pardon in our life. jesus hung on a cross for a pardon. this there is also give unto that which is caesar's. a government to uphold laws. governors say you were here illegally and commit these heinous crimes we know did you it. we are going to pardon you. you are still here illegally. gives people who play by the rules and our citizens look at it sideways and say that doesn't make sense. abby: people who do it the right way and wait in line to become citizens. pete: where is my pardon. i was here illegall illegally ad slinging drugs on the corner u where is my pardon. this is a advocacy group, now there is a pardon. a lot of it is hypothetical. an i have been deported i'm still back in the u.s. and i feel like i didn't do anything other than being there legally like a crime.
3:08 am
ed: absolutely. you think that's a crazy story, what about this? a georgia teacher recorded in a 15 minute rant attacking president trump. so you have this sixth grader and she is in social studies class. thinking she is going to learn about american history. pete: you would think. ed: all of a sudden the teacher goes on this 15-minute rant about president trump. so the student decides to record it. abby: sixth grade student. take a listen. >> talking about it was great segregation in the 50's. maybe he is talking about the 70's. where we had the black panther movement because people were still not being treated equally. maybe he is talking about in the 90's when we had police officers beat and rodney king in the street. then in the 2,000s and we still having the same issues. so when my president says let's make america great again, when was he talking about? he must be talking about when it was great for europe
3:09 am
means. america has never been great for minorities. and even now it makes me go, hmmm, when i'm trying to figure out when was it great? abby: again, that was recorded on a sixth grader's phone who turned it on when the teacher of this sixth grade class was giving this rant. sounds like she doesn't wants to be living in this country to begin with. these are the people educating these young kids. i give it to this student who has this phone. how many other times this goes on that we don't know about. where they don't plug in their phones. pete: parent i'm submitting my kids to government public schools where i want to believe that the teachers there are above board, teaching civics. now it's social studies. we changed in that direction. this is also the same school where they were given an assignment recently to write about why they should be for gun control. one of the parents, we had
3:10 am
them on the program yesterday called out the fact why am i giving an assignment to my kid political perspective as opposed to having a fair and balanced debate. ed: there is a communications coordinator from henry county schools in georgia it is extremely unfortunate that we experienced a separate unrelated incident involving a teacher using the classroom space for actions we do not condone. the matter was addressed imimmediately upon it being brought to our attention. this unfortunate incident affords the opportunity to remind our teachers to keep any political bias out of lessons for students of any age. yes, for sure. yes, that's important. what about the part at the end where it's not just the anti-trump rant, but she said america has never been great for minorities. never. abby: we have nothing to be proud of. ed: tell that to minority entrepreneurs around the country living the american dream. abby: how many are trying to get to this free country to have those opportunities. the irony of that. ed: have there been minority mistakes and minorities kept
3:11 am
down for a long time? absolutely. address it talk about it. abby: that's part of it. ed: there are minorities now who are succeeding in this country big time. how about that? america has never been great for minorities? we'll have the student on later this morning. abby: the sixth grader who recorded it. i can't wait to have her on. pete: sixth grader might say i recorded it because i heard it three or four times before and i knew it was come. this is probably not something that happened once or only in that classroom. email us at friends@foxnews.com, has this happened at your school. do you know political bias in your social studies or civics classroom? interesting stuff. abby: did that sixth grader do the right thing to record it? >> we have other headlines to bring you this morning starting with a fox news alert. the united nations security council calling an emergency meeting on the deadly clashes in gaza. the u.n.'s chief requesting an investigation over the concerns of the violence getting worse between the palestinians and israeli troops. hamas militants declaring a

[chanting] you can't stop the revelation. abby: an independent autopsy revealing that the 22-year-old was shot eight times, including six bullets in his back. the officers responding to a call about a man breaking car windows. they claim he had a gun but only a cell phone was found. both officers are now on leave. and an incredible finish to the ncaa women's final four as unbeaten uconn goes down in a last-second shot plays mississippi state in game tomorrow. march madness celebrity. loyola chaplain sister jean
3:13 am
we love her on the show providing words of wisdom before the men's final four. take a listen. >> well, it all depends on how hard you work for it, too. we have a little slogan that we say worship, work, and win. abby: the motto of oour show this morning. tonight's loyola vs. michigan and kansas vs. villanova. ed: loyola game is the early game for those of us who get up early i'm glad because you probably won't make it for the second one: >> we started building our wall, i'm so proud of it. we have 1.6 billion. on september 28th we go further and we're getting that sucker built. pete: so how is the project coming along? we will ask a border agent on the ground next. ed: basic training is about to get a whole lot tougher. how the army is upgrapgd it to combat the rise of unfit recruits. pete: if you are not in

pete: president trump very much committed to keeping his campaign promise you have building that beautiful, southern border wall. >> we started building our wall. i'm so proud of it we have 1.6 billion. >> on september 28th we go further and we are getting that sucker built. you think that's easy? people said oh, has he given up on the wall? i never give up. pete: he is not giving up. here to update us on the status of the building of that wall is acting deputy commissioner of u.s. customs and border protection ronald d.batello. ronald, thank you for joining us this morning. answer that specific question for our audience. where are we on the progress of that wall? >> so there is wall under construction right now in calexico, california. we have plans for much more budget passed gives us
3:17 am
capability to build along the border. calexico, santa fe, rio grande valley. that was all funded in the 2018 proposition. pete: there was some confusion around that omnibus bill whether or not this was going to be the president's 30-foot border wall. whether it was new sections. whether it was replacing other sections. clarify for people, is this actually funding for a wall or is it fencing or surveillance? what are we looking at? >> it's border wall and a mix of all of those things. so the president asked us what we needed on the southwest border as it related to his goal for operational control. it will be a mix of replacing some barriers that stop vehicles and turning that into pedestrian fencing. it's replacing some of the dilapidated landing fence project in san diego. new walls with new features. that's the project that's ongoing right now in calexico. pete: there has been speculation based on a tweet from the president. that he may look to the military to fund the border wall if congress won't come
3:18 am
through. he didn't get all the funding he wanted. you got to start as you have been talking about. what are your thoughts on the concept of do the issues of national defense it could be the defense department that helps pitch in. >> so in the broad terms, national defense and homeland security go hand in hand. i have worked many times with the department of defense on the border. they have been our partners for decades. and so this is an interesting discussion. and we'll continue to look for ways to add capability across the board, including where we can work with the military. pete: overall when you look at how the president hats put out on twitter we are starting the wall. walls going out now, taller and bigger than they were before aren't necessarily the prototype. the hope here is you get moving on and it actual prototypes approved used in the larger parts of the border that still need to be addressed. >> we will use all of the information that we learned in the prototypes. there are attributes on that wall going to be sought after by agents depending on
3:19 am
terrain and funding and depending on quhinsd of problems we are trying to solve. the wall in calexico is 30-foot tall. we did not have that as an attribute before the president asked us for these requirements. pete: very real changes coming to the border. as you said walls work. have you seen that in your time? >> yes. everywhere where we have had this barrier, it's a safer condition where our agents work and helps us control the border better. not just walls. it's important for people to know we are asking for a suite of technology to go along with it. asking for different and better access to the border and obviously agents are a big part of the equation. pete: of course. like we know in the military obstacle is not effective unless have you overwatch of that obstacle. that's what you are talking about. slow people down and interdict them when they are trying to get across. ronald vitiello, thank you for your service not just at the border but everything do you for this country. we appreciate it. >> thank you, sir. pete: coming up next, the wife of the pulse nightclub gunman found not guilty of

3:24 am
former attorney general eric holder might be back for a 2020 presidential run. in an interview holder telling vice land he is still making up his mind. >> as i said i'm going to decide by the beginning of next year and see if there is going to be another chapter in my public service career. abby: holder adding he disagrees with attorney general jeff sessions decision of making at the justijustice department saying e could put a stop to that 2020 could be interesting. ed: back as well. happy about that. shocking verdict the widow of the gunman who killed 49 people at the orlando nightclub pulse in 2016 is now a free woman. noor salman acquitted of charges that she lied to the fbi and aided her husband in the attack. a surprising defeat for the government in this major terror case. so why was she acquitted? and what impact, it any, will this further have on terror cases. important case. our panel kisha an attorney
3:25 am
been on very before and dr. ahmad a collar in the invisible land of women. let me start with you dr. ahmed first. what is the situation with some of these women baseballly wives of terrorists. do they enable them overall? >> yes. i mean, i read the verdict. but certainly women associated with terrorism have many roles. they have been enablers. they have been handlers. and sometimes as individuals they eare even perpetrators. this was not the case with this woman. the jury it said -- itself said she was clearly aware of his capacity and capability. she didn't know when or exactly where the attack would be, but she knew it i hold her morally culpable. ed: keisha, legally as well, the wife was seeing that he was watching these beheading videos. he was also you know, lavishing all kinds of gifts on her as if he was going away and disappearing.
3:26 am
handed her insurance policies. there were all kinds of warning signs. it seems if she was not in on it. she should have seen. >> the thing we have to remember is in any criminal case the prosecutor has to prove each and every element of that statute. so, just having indicia of okay, he is up to something or he is, you know, involved in this very bad or these very bad things doesn't mean that she specifically participated or assisted him in committing these actual crimes. so, that's why the jurors had no choice but to come back with the verdict of not guilty because the prosecutor didn't prove all of those elements. ed: talk about the culture. >> also the ruling shows we do have deficiencies in the law. the bar is set very high as you explained concerning material support. but do we exonerate family members who are aware of these things developing? as a muslim in america and she herself was adult in post 9/11 america, we know we have a responsibility to expose plots. we know islamism lives in our communities and our families and our mosques.
3:27 am
what does this tell other muslims around the country if they have concerns that they are going to raise them to attention or nothing will follow through. i think it shows there is a gap in the law where there is no ability to prosecute individuals who may know of something that is quite likely to happen. ed: and is there -- have we seen cases where the wives actually encourage this, push their husbands into it? >> we know, one of the most famous female jihaddists who is in jail and was prosecuted here in new york city, was herself a recruiter siddiqui. we also know that for instance in the shooting in san bernardino, the wife herself was radicalized. we know this data from inside pakistan from, afghanistan, in palestine, that women have many, many roles. now, that doesn't mean that there aren't women and i think this woman had the capability of. ed: sure. >> of telling if she was a battered and abused woman, which i believe she was telling a friend. she documented on facebook that she was opposed to bad
3:28 am
muslims. she had personal agency to write on facebook. she communicated that to someone else. >> you are talking about a criminal trial. you can't go based on she knew her husband was involved in these things and back to your point about her being an abused woman. a lot of times women who are abused and controlled and manipulated by extremist husbands they are definitely afraid of them and they're brain washed. i think the jurors had some sympathy towards her because of that. and that's a huge issue. >> i agree. that's the deficiency in the law that she wasn't meeting the criteria for a criminal. however, she was not so lacking in lucid at this that she didn't know i'm not taking a plea bargain because i didn't do this. she recognizes she was innocent. >> attorneys. they said there is not enough evidence. don't plead to something if there is not enough evidence to convict you. ed: kish sharks we had as a last question. a woman last night on fox lost a cousin in the pulse nightclub shooting and said whole life is shattered here. and the wife saw all these signs. how is there no
3:29 am
accountability and no culpability? >> i think we as americans who are hurting because of that tragic incident, we are emotionally looking for someone to take the blame, to suffer and be punished for that act. and who is the best person but the wife who went to the shooting range and all those things with him. but, again, we lower our standard of proving someone's guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, an innocent person could be convicted. we have to keep in mind our judicial system is designed for that reason. ed: thank you. hillary clinton says those calling to move on from the 2016 elections are sexist. >> 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 elect you had. ed: candace owens is here to react live next. and hurling towards earth. an 18,000-pound space station is expected to fall somewhere, anywhere at any moment in the next few days. where it's expected to drop.

3:35 am
for hillary clinton has passed are just really sexist is what she says. >> look, this is remarkably tone deaf of her. it's evidence she no longer cares about the future of the democratic party. it's also evidence that they don't know what to do. they have been flying in auto pilot so long. throwing out names. everybody is racist and sexist that they essentially have forgotten how to debate and how to use logic and reason. hillary lost because she keeps insulting americans and solution to that is to keep insulting americans. abby: also the elections for her specifically is a huge embarrassment. someone campaigning for so many years. she had the dnc locked up. she had all the money she needed to be successful. here comes this guy donald trump who she knew personally never in politics before. didn't have the money that she had. you know, didn't know exactly what he was doing. there he wins and he beats her. now she is saying i don't have an excuse for this. >> right, exactly. abby: maybe i should take the woman card. >> he had the heart.

he had the drive. listen, he was telling people the truth and that's what they wanted to hear. she had forgotten about the middle america. he didn't. she had forgotten about everything outside of new york and california. he didn't. that is why she lost. she needs to take a second and go introspective and try to understand that it has nothing to do with anybody but herself and her own faults. ed: someone else needs to do some intraspeculation, a teacher in georgia. a sixth grade student listening to this anti-trump rant in the classroom. social studies class. it went much further than that. listen to this clip. >> when i examine history, i can't remember a time when it was great for anybody other than the europeans. >> he's probably talking about the point before all the illegal immigrants were killing americans. >> everyone sitting in this room. when you say immigrants are killing people, you are talking about yourselves. ed: can't we make a
3:37 am
distinction in this country even a student a sixth grader said hold on, teacher, maybe donald trump is talking about the fact that illegal immigrants are killing americans now. and she said oh we are all immigrants. shouldn't there be a delineation between legal immigration and illegal immigration and shouldn't our kids be taught that? >> of course they should. this actually makes me sick. it's not enough for us to just talk about it something we have to actively do something about and obviously i work for turning point. this is sort of our main mission. you have to understand that school systems, they have really become islands of totalitarianism. they are using intimidation tactics to sort of push this propaganda on to students. it's not fair. and i'm telling you, the parents have to wake up and get involved because this problem is widespread. we see it every single day. abby: this was just one time. >> this is not an outlier. abby: sixth grader recorded it on her cell phone. we have her on the show later. how many times wasn't it recorded. >> what we do at turning point. we want people to submit these stories.
3:38 am
it's happening every single day. you would be surprised how widespread this issue has become. pete: you are talking about the professor watch list which is fantastic. a sixth grader. we played you 30 seconds. a 15-minute rant going on. to your point recorded it probably because there were multiple times before where this happened. don't we need to wake up to the fact that our high schools, our middle schools are islands of indoctrination. >> our elementary schools. they are stepping in and they're parenting and they are telling students they only have to think one way. and that way is liberal. and that way is democratic. and i'm telling you right now, it is poisonous to the way that these students are growing up. they are growing up anti-american is what they're teaching in the school system. they are teaching them to hate the country that they live in. that's what terrifies me. abby: lots of times parents don't know what's going on. >> exactly right. pete: thanks for coming on. >> thanks for having me. abby: three day man hunt for violent deportee coming to an end. ice agents arresting mbacke

abby: talking 'killing babies. how did that part of her rant make you feel? >> well, it made me feel that i had done something wrong even though i knew that i didn't. she just like made me think that i did because she was just -- just the way she looked at me when she said it. she looked at me like this you're bad. and then it was just like really awkward and then i just felt so bad after that. abby: right. you think about the role of a teacher and the impact that they have on your life and everyone in that class and just how unfortunate that moment was. how did the other students around you feel about this? did you talk to any of them about it? >> i didn't really talk to them about it everyone in the class is a child except for the two teachers that were in the classroom. they were all like looking off in to space.
4:29 am
they were being confused and they were like, huh? abby: not sure what's going on. your school has put out a statement saying it's extremely unfortunate that we experienced unfortunate incident for a teaching using the classroom space for actions we do not condone. ththe matter was addressed immediately upon it being brought to our attention. this is unfortunate incident affords us the opportunity to remind educators of the importance of keeping any potential political bias out of lessons for any students of any wage. we wouldn't know about this if it had not been for you opening up your phone and recording this. right? they are the reason why they are talking about it now. >> oh, yeah. i'm special. abby: do you have a message for the school or, you know, anything you wanting to say before we let did you go? >> no. not really. but i'm just kind of like disappointed in the fact
4:30 am
that that teachers have like such a big impact on kids and like as a child, i know that you have to believe what adults say because like they are the adult and they like know everything. i know she was probably using that just so she can like just have more people, i guess, on her side. i don't know how to say that. abby: get out her own anger. we appreciate you being here. you are a brave young girl. i know that's not easy. it's great to have you on this morning, joest. thanjosie, thank you so much. >> thank you. abby: are you a citizen controversy growing around the citizenship question being added to the 2020 census. you may not believe how many people may just skip it? remember when elizabeth warren refused to take a d.n.a. test to prove her native american heritage claims? ed is very nervous about this. there is a surprise in store that you do not want to miss and neither do i. that's straight ahead ♪ take what you get ♪ and it turn it into

ed: some are predicting 24 million people may skip the census all together. pete: previous censuses have not asked households whether people inside the household are citizens or not. the trump administration with a focus on law and order and citizenship and understanding who is here legally and not legally says hey, what a great opportunity to get a true accounting of how many people we have here legally or illegally. let's add it. there has been controversy to the left because they of course don't want this question asked. abby: other side said this can come across disrespectful. why do you have to ask this question? good. probably one of the most important issues of this time country's history. in order to move forward, we have to get a better sense of what we are dealing with. ed: democrats are saying look, if you put the citizenship question in there, if someone is here illegally, they will get nervous about that and then they are not going to answer the other questions and not turn in a census and we will not get an accurate reading how many people are here and get the answers we need. robert shapiro was under secretary at the commerce department during the 2,000
4:37 am
census during the clind. he said wilbur ross and jeff sessions explicitly tied the question to federal law enforcement. that's what makes his directive so remarkable and dangerous. my analysis, he says, woo. people would skip the 2020 census if they believe names and dresses could be shared with law enforcement. you get the idea, pete, look, if somebody turns in a census and says i'm not a citizen and here is my name and here is my address. jeff sessions is going to send somebody to their door. pete: that's not what the administration is saying they are doing. they are simply saying let's get our arms around how many are here. 24.3. that's a big number. either people here illegally and don't ape it or people who are in households where there is someone who is illegal. you add that together and that number could be larger than we already know. if we want to get the hands around who is in our country and why. it makes sense to ask that question. i understand the arguments of the left per se. i think that's why president
4:38 am
trump was elected to say either we have a country or we don't. citizenship should matter. abby: that's why i think going into mid terms, immigration is still going to be one of the top issues for sure. abby: turning to other headlines we are following. dash cam video horrifically showing a driver driving a police officer during routine traffic stop. the officer asking the driver to get out of car after finding out he had several warrants. that is according to ohio police. the man resisting as the officer is trapped inside the door, dragging him against the pavment. cleveland police later arresting the driver. the officer is recovering with a dislocated shoulder. hiking and camping is under attack at a main college. a student run outing club is accused of white fliflg a recent school paper article. bates college described the outdoors club as massively white, sickenly privileged and closest thing we have to a fraternity.

♪ pete: welcome back. it looks like another case of california dreaming, this time with free money. low income residents of stock don, california, set to receive $500 -- to receive $500 a month for free as part of an experiment in universal basic income by the city's liberal mayor. and the tech world. so, is no strings attached universal income a good idea? or is it just a slippery slope in to socialism? here to debate is fox news contributor kevin jackson and former hillary for america surrogate david goodfriend. kevin, let me start with you. the idea is you don't need to work. if you are below a certain income threshold you get 500 bucks a month no strings attached. will this work and if not, what are the consequences? >> hey, america, it's not april fool's day. it is yet another stupid liberal policy that people want to initiate in california and where else?
4:46 am
give out lottery tickets, cigarettes and liquor while they are at it, right? this is one of these hair brain ideas and love how they couch it as free. it's free because somebody making 15 bucks an hour is going to work 30 plus hours to give somebody else who is not doing anything flee money, it's not free. somebody has to earn this money so somebody else can sit on their butts and doing no. california sees this as everybody should have a liveable, reasonable wage to work with so they can exist. the fact of the matter is, folks, this money is coming from somewhere. and, unfortunately, it's not -- to put it back into the system in this way is not the way that people -- that it should be done. pete: sure. david, your response to the idea that it's not fair when other taxpayers are footing the bill for folks who don't have to work and get free money? >> well, i first want to start by pointing out that it was conservatives like milton freidman in 1962 who came up with the idea of a negative income tax or even
4:47 am
today senator mike lee a republican of utah saying we have 79 different means tested programs, this should be consolidated. pete: you are saying this is a conservative program? >> excuse me, this is the idea of a universal income has been around since 1962. pete: for what? >> well, sir, when you call this a hair brain liberal idea you are showing your ignorance. the point is universal income is something that's been debated as a way to deal with job displacement when automation and technology are mr. b. to eliminate half, that's right, half of all jobs with -- pete: so the response. >> can you actually say this is one way of addressing an issue. you may disagree with how it's being addressed but jobs in this country and earning a living through a job are about to be completely undone by automation. pete: kevin, answer that. >> so they have been saying. pete: the idea if you lose your job from that automation then you should just be on the government doll? >> exactly, pete. many people change jobs and
4:48 am
change careers over time. it's happened since man has been in existence. and we started an actual culture. so this idea that oh, well, if you lose your manufacturing job, well, you are completely useless. well, that's the way leftist think. this guy can reflect back on milton freidman and the people oh it originated with a conservative. no conservative would say get something for nothing. look, i grew up poor. i didn't want something for nothing. if you had offered me $500 a month as a poor black kid growing up. i would say why would you think i would take something so silly and be limited by your $500 a month. why not $5 million a month. maybe i will consider it $500 a month is an insult and i'm willing to work for it and so are most of americans. people want us to buy into poverty. pete: why no work requirement, david? >> well, actually i think in some experiments with universal income work requirements are there. for example. pete: not in this one though. >> in the case of stockton

5:03 am
byes office of professional responsibility that was used as part of deputy director andy mccabe's firing. that report also includes, we're learning, testimony from former director comey that conflicts with what mccabe has said publicly. so, what's big about this is this report points out things that have been pointed out by who is it jim jordan and others on this network saying we believe andy mccabe lied up to four times. or, you know, you would have to speculate james comey has lied publicly or privately. now they are turning at each other saying i was allowed or wasn't aloud. abby: this is a department who should be transparent of all. not just guys that worked at the fbi. the two top men at the fbi and they can't seem to come to agreement on some pretty important things like leaking information to a journalist who is talking about the clinton emails. ed: we have spent so much time, more than 14 months now, longer, investigating whether there is russian collusion. think about all the time the president hasn't spent on the economy, healthcare, all these issues we talk about
5:04 am
that are so important to all of our viewers. if there is collusion there, find it. then figure out where there is accountability. they haven't found collusion so far. my point is the people who have spent a lot of time investigating the president and challenging his honesty and integrity, andrew mccabe and james comey. turns out they can't get their story straight. so if the umpires, the people who are investigating have their own problems with the truth, we have got real problems here. pete: because the umpires it turns out not calling real balls and strikes. they thought the game was over and hillary clinton was going to change the game and that wouldn't matter at all. now it's coming back on them. this fbi report from the office of personal responsibility. have you got the inspector general's report coming up. you have the additional counsel outside of the attorney general's office. and calls for a special counsel to. your point, if there is no collusion, let's prove it. if there was no nefarious actions in the clinton server or fisa spying scandal. prove it shine the light of day on it and find out. abby: still a lot of questions remain. we will follow that story
5:05 am
closely. ed: i'm on the train from washington to new york. i pick up "the washington post" it's not on page 1. i was stunned to find buried in the paper upon news about pas about the president. areas booming in areas that voted for the president. studied labor department data. headline surprising rebound in trump country and could be short-lived. couldn't give him full credit it could be short-lived. here is what struck me. in the first year of the trump presidency, places that voted for trump are doing better economically than at the end of the obama administration. but that is not totally surprising because the overall economy has continued to add jobs. what may be more surprising is that not only are these counties adding jobs but also job growth has accelerated the most where trump had the most votes. these are places like pennsylvania, ohio, wisconsin, the forgotten man and woman. "the washington post," which is not always very positive about the president is admitting job growth, economic growth is better there. number one, and number two,
5:06 am
that the president is basically keeping a promise to not forget about these people. abby: that was one of the biggest promises in the campaign to those people in the part of the country saying you need economic boost more than anyone. i'm here to give that to you. that's what i'm going to campaign on. when i get into the presidency that's what i'm going to do. it is interesting that with the economy doing better there has to be that caveat. this is why it won't last. guys, why can't we just have an article saying the economy is doing well. here is why. here is why every american. i don't care if you are republican or democrat. shouldn't we all hope for the economy to stay strong? pete: i have to give ed henry credit for this. we prepare to show up for the show in the morning. look at this story right here. no one else is talking about it it's true. look at this headline. they can't even give him full credit it could be short-lived. abby: you have that much energy at 4:00 in the morning? ed: super charged pete rant. pete: no one is talking about it "the washington post," the paragon of washington, d.c. and they have to admit labor
5:07 am
statistics in the places where trump was elected, things are getting better. ed: jeff bezos, "the washington post" has to admit it. abby: in their own way. we have a lot of energy this morning. there is a rant going around, a sixth grade teacher johnetta benton out of georgia has her own opinions about president trump. take a listen to this. >> talking about it was great. segregation in the 60's. maybe he's talking about the 70's, when we had the black panther movement because people were still not being treated equally. maybe he's talking about the 90's when he had police officers beat and rodney king in the street. then in the 2,000s and we still having the same issues. so when my president says let's make america great again, when was he talking about? >> talking about when it was great for europeans.
5:08 am
america has never been great for minorities. and even now it makes me go, hmmm, when i'm trying to figure out when was it great? abby: the reason we have this rant is there was a student in that class josie, we had her a few moments ago. she decided to record this on her phone. the rant is 15 minutes long. she said it started weld before she started recording it. here is what she told me. >> we were about to watch a movie for the first day of black history month. as soon as the movie had started the teacher paused it and she said that earlier that day she had read a poem called america for you is not america for me. and then she said that this kind of reminded her of donald trump slogan that she turns at the clock and says hey, do any of you know what donald trump's slogan is? everyone said make america great again. a few seconds later she started saying maybe when he said that he was trying to
5:09 am
bring back segregation. right after that i instantly knew my mom is going to love this and i need to record it so that's what i did. ed: wait, let's stop the tape. so a sixth grade teacher in america is claiming to these 11, 12-year-old students that donald trump bringing segregation back in america. what a lie. this is what some teachers are teaching our children right now. pete: it's not social studies, it's social indoctrination. if this is one student in one class in one state, as parents out there, we have to be vigilant that in these public schools, government schools, largely controlled by unions that lean left. it is what it is, they may not be getting the straight story on really important matters and things of our day. so you better be in your class. better be talking to your teacher and reading your homework and looking at the curriculum. this is the same school district that sent an assignment out for kids to write about why they should be for gun control. abby: to congress. it does make you think about the parents though. how often their parents come
5:10 am
from from school and what happened in the classroom or what their teachers are teaching them or the rants happening. ed: we want to give al statement from hen i have county schools in georgia. it is extremely unfortunate we it strikes me did they really not know or not going in the classroom because, again, without this student recording it we wouldn't have known about it. but did the administrators know? were they turning a blind eye? pete: did they know the teacher had a political approach? s matter was addressed immediately. i would like to know what that means. has the teacher been reprimanded or suspended. abby: talking about minorities. nothing has been great for
5:11 am
minorities. you wonder why are so many people trying to get here. why do people want to live in this country. why do they want to live that american dream? pete: tough stuff. abby: i want to bring headlines we are following. starting with this one a fox news alert. united nations security council calling emergency meeting on deadly clashes? gaza. u.n. requesting investigation violence getting worse between palestinians and israeli troops. hamas militants declaring a month long protest bringing thousands of palestinian demonstrators to israel's border. in their ongoing dispute over land. at least 15 protesters are now dead. hundreds have been injured. also this. president trump reportedly freezing funds in syria as the u.s. reevaluates its role in that war torn nation. the white house neither confirming or denying the "wall street journal's" report that more than $200 million is being pulled from syrian recovery efforts. officials telling fox news that a state department is evaluating spending for international aid. and protests plaguing the city of sacramento overnight as outrage continues over

every great why when it comes to strong bones, are you on the right path? we have postmenopausal osteoporosis and a high risk for fracture, so with our doctors we chose prolia® to help make our bones stronger. only prolia® helps strengthen bones by stopping cells that damage them with 1 shot every 6 months. do not take prolia® if you have low blood calcium, are pregnant, are allergic to it, or take xgeva®. serious allergic reactions, like low blood pressure; trouble breathing; throat tightness; face, lip or tongue swelling, rash, itching or hives have happened. tell your doctor about dental problems, as severe jaw bone problems may happen or new or unusual pain in your hip, groin, or thigh, as unusual thigh bone fractures have occurred. speak to your doctor before stopping prolia®, as spine and other bone fractures have occurred. prolia® can cause serious side effects, like low blood calcium; serious infections, which could need hospitalization; skin problems; and severe bone, joint, or muscle pain. if your bones aren't getting stronger isn't it time for a new direction?

5:18 am
op-ed joins us now from los angeles. good morning, happy easter. >> good morning, ed, how are you? >> peggy, what is your thesis about all of these shakeups? >> well, i think that it's exaggerated that the white house is in crisis. here is a man who likes change. is he a great decisionmaker. if he doesn't like something, he doesn't complain about it he mixes it up. that's what we are seeing and some of these personnel changes are beyond his control whether it's a personal issue with a staff or confirmation clog or anything like that. we see a president who is unafraid to make change. and that's what is he doing. ronald reagan did the same and made changes very early on in his presidency. and so that's something that is not new to a white house. >> you wrote a wonderful book about ronald reagan. a lot of memories in there when you mentioned that ronald reagan went through this before, what do you think is the greatest example of that? >> well, i think that ronald reagan like donald trump is a man of instinct. and people didn't elect the staffers around ronald reagan. they elected him. just like they elected
5:19 am
donald trump. ronald reagan was a man of instinct. so whether it was the strike where he went against common sense and a lot of people advised him differently to not fire the air traffic controllers. and, again, at the berlin wall when he sedentary down that wall. not only is the state department but his own searier advisors advised him against it but he knew it was the right thing to do and he said it boldly and aren't we glad that he did because the nation was changed and the world was forever changed as well. >> donald trump was told, also, don't, you know, get into all this rhetoric about fire and fury on north korea. don't call him little rocket man and now we see the dictator of north korea coming to the table. real quick, i have got a minute left. i'm remembering as well from your book james baker and donald regan, didn't they switch jobs in the reagan duration. a lot of people said that's not going to work but it revived his presidency. >> original job swap. people were a little nervous about that. all these staff changes are

harmful political ideology. there are times when we can consume problematic pop culture but this is not one of those times. the resistance put continue, i saw the first two episodes of the roseanne reboot but that's all i'm going to watch. it's a small line to draw but it is a start. can't normalize president trump by watching a tv show. abby: but it did show that it did do well and that there are people not in california, not new york city, but all throughout this country that wanted a breath of fresh air and something different and this show is entertaining and funny and i think it's an example of what this country is all about. pete: it took this long for someone to recognize that people who voted for president trump also watch television. these award shows their ratings keep going into the tank maybe if they showed balance and they weren't just liberal propaganda they might have more viewers. ed: pointed out the ratings 18 million was right around where the oscars dropped to so america was watching this. abby: well someone else is
6:06 am
outraged about this newt gingrich was on this show yesterday and he was asked about the show and here was his message to the media. take a listen. >> i think it's great that she's doing so well. i think it is frankly funny that she is pro-trump openly so, and she's being successful and i think there's a message there, those people think trump is going to be easy to beat, you better get on with roseanne. ed: maybe the president is talking to the forgotten man and women and not like the whole roseanne show is touting donald trump talking. it's just showing different views. pete: it was a conservation between people who disagree and there was funny parts but both sides were represented. abby: so we asked you on the show what do you think about roseanne and you guys have been e-mailing us your responses. dale says i love the new show keep it going roseanne and the cast. pete: keep that teleprompter going too because it's not moving so we can't read the e-mail. abby: [laughter] ed: the next e-mail is from marilyn. finally will abc have the nerve to bring back last man standing. abby: that's with tim allen.
6:07 am
it's actually really funny. ed: he got fired right? abby: well it was on abc and" didn't get renewed and it had good ratings and there was no reason for that and now it's on cmt, another channel that i watch a lot and tim allen is still as funny as he ever was. ed: interesting facebook can't catch a break we were talking about it this morning their employees in an uproar over an executive's leaked memo from 2016 in which and raw bosworth, a facebook vice president was talking about outlook, there's some good with social media, there's some bad, he said maybe it costs a life exposing someone to bullies, maybe someone dies in a terror attack coordinated on our tools, and still, we connect people. the ugly truth is that we believe in connecting people so deeply that anything that allows us to connect more people more often is de facto good. abby: that was back in what? pete: 2016 and it was an internal memo that was leaked but for those in the general public that don't know the inside conservation it's very revealing because it seems
6:08 am
there's a private facebook and public facebook and the private facebook is hey we just want to connect people we're agnostic to belief if you're a terrorists if you're this or that, not a terrorists that's something they know they need to crackdown and should do better at but if you're doing good or bad things publicly they're talking about social responsibility and all the things and you feel like as a conservative it's slanted against you we've seen it with places like prager university, a lot of conservatives reach out to me saying my posts aren't being shared and there's a concern it's slanted in one direction but privately there's a real profit to keep connected. abby: i think a lot of companies like facebook trying to figure out how to navigate the world we live in with technology. you can decide whether or not you want to be apart of facebook but as they continue to grow and get bigger and bigger how do you clamp down on that. ed: isn't it ironic facebook started out with this whole transparency and selfies and show us your entire life and don't worry about your privacy we've got everything, and now when we want to see some of
6:09 am
their memos they're like oh, delete delete delete. pete: that's true and we learned the stuff we thought was private to them hasn't stayed private at all. abby: i do want to bring other headlines on a serious note with a fox news alert. the united nations security council calling an emergency meeting on the deadly clashes and the u.n. is requesting an investigation over concerns of the violence getting worse between palestinians and israeli troops declaring a month-long protest bringing thousands of demonstrators to israel's border in their ongoing dispute over land. 15 protesters are now dead hundreds have been injured and diplomats flying out of the united states today just days after president trump's decision to expel # 0 officials from the country and losing its consolate in seattle. the president's decision coming after the poisoning of an ex- russian spy and his daughter in the uk. russia now retaliating expelling 60 american diplomats and closing our consolate in st.

because the oak ridge boys called. they needed a bass, so i'm working on that. pete: i can tell. ed: are you calling into critique us or talking about the final four, we doing a good job on the couch? >> fantastic but ed i see you spilled a little something where i sit. ed: i'll clean it up. abby: steve what are you going to do? pete: what's your pick for tonight steve? >> it's tough because peter went to undergraduate at villanova and that's why i'm wearing the t-shirt right now that says my kid and my money go to villanova university, and then my daughter mary went to law school there and i went to the university of kansas where they invented basketball. so ladies and gentlemen, i'm going with ku. i will be the only person in the house screaming but then again, i won't actually sound like i'm screaming just in pain because of how i sound right now. abby: you're a villanova dad and you've given them your money you've done enough steve.

pete: kansas is the home of basketball. i mean it's literally where it was invented. >> dr. james bateman, that's right at the university of kansas, with hoop invented the whole thing and here we are. ed: steve get yourself some hot tea, but enjoy the game and it's always a pleasure to have you on have a great weekend. abby: thanks, steve. pete: good stuff. abby: you never know what's going to happen. pete: i didn't know he was calling in until right there. ed: i'm sorry i spilled coffee here. pete: i watched you pour it out. abby: he watches you like a hawk when you're in his seat. pete: well we'll move on jefferson, you know jefferson, the thomas type, has got to go. that's what students are chanting as they protest at one college campus. why would they want to remove history? ed: and job growth and the economy are booming in the areas that voted for the president. even the washington post, pete, is admitting it. pete: ed's favorite paper.
6:13 am
ed: herman cain next to talk about trump country, next. >> ♪ money money money ♪ you might take something for your heart... or joints. but do you take something for your brain. with an ingredient originally found in jellyfish, prevagen is the number one selling brain-health supplement in drug stores nationwide. prevagen. the name to remember.
6:14 am
6:15 am
6:16 am
abby: welcome back. well there is an economic boom in trump country. ed: and even the washington post which usually doesn't like the president has to admit it, in writing. in the first year of the p.m. presidency they write places that voted for trump are doing better economically than at the end of the obama administration. what may be more surprising is that not only are these counties adding jobs but also job growth has accelerated the most in counties where trump earned the most votes. pete: so what is behind that success? abby: joining us now to weigh in is former ceo of godfather and 2012 republican presidential candidate herman cain. great to have you with us good morning. >> good morning, thank you. happy to be here. abby: all right so what do you make of that washington post not usually giving the president any
6:17 am
sort of praise but in this case they may not have a choice. >> they are not telling the whole story. the whole country is trump country, and even if you look in those areas where they are saying trump didn't get the majority of the votes, their economy is booming too. when you have a gdp growth rate north of 2.5 and we're off to a great start this year and the stock market is on fire it's helping everybody but the washington post is doing is what they like to try to do and mislead people and think that only the trump areas are doing better. the whole country is doing better and the economy is on the rise. ed: the article comes with some fancy charts and the like which i'm having trouble reading but they do say the counties that voted for him have even larger benefit from this. what policy approach because those are a lot of places where the forgotten men and industries that had done well in the past had started to fade away are starting to come back.
6:18 am
what policies led to this kind of rebound? >> tax cuts and jobs plan. that's it simply and now if you have a county that was below the national average it's probably showing a greater increase than a company or a county that was performing at the national average. the policies that are impacting and helping the entire country which i call trump country, the entire country, tax cuts and jobs plan. regulate rollback. confidence that we have the supreme court that's not going to be bias and a list of other executive orders. his policies are helping the entire country but the washington post, they only want people to believe that the trump counties are the only ones benefiting and that's misleading ed: and the washington post also happens to be owned by jeff bezos from amazon of course president spars with him a lot. >> yeah! ed: and what's interesting is you mentioned a moment ago the stock market is on fire i would
6:19 am
add its been pretty volatile and the president tweeted about amazon their stock went down here is what he's saying this morning. while we were on the subject it is reported that the u.s. post office will lose $1.50 on average for each package it delivers for amazon that amounts to billions of dollars and the failing new york times report that the size of the companies lobbying staff has ballooned and that does not include the fake washington post he says which is used as a lobbyist and should so register. if the post office increases parcel rates amazon shipping costs would rise by 2-point # billion dollars. this post office scam he says must stop, amazon must pay real cost and taxes now, what say you >> what i say is first, amazon should be left alone and let the market determine their faith along with consumers. secondly, fix the post office. fix the postal system. it has been losing money for decades and they won't fix the problem. amazon isn't a problem with the
6:20 am
post office. the post office is the problem with itself. that's what i would say and so my main point is whenever you allow the markets, you allow consumers to determine the faith of somebody like amazon even if we see some irregularities let the market handle it. it will eventually shake it out and as far as the stock market, yes, we're seeing some volatility but it has not lost all of the great gains it has generated within the last year. ed: herman cain he always delivers. abby: someone else has that nickname too. abby: great to have you on this morning. ed: being held in contempt of congress not stopping former attorney general eric holder's hopes of a potential run for the white house. will he decide to take on trump? abby: and our own geraldo rivera is here live to talk about his new book, a lot is in this book joining us on the curvy couch.

pete: now to a fox news alert the united nations security council calling an emergency meeting on the deadly clashes that have killed at least 15 protesters and injured hundreds. abby: militants declaring a month-long protest that has brought thousands of palestinian demonstrators to israel's border ed: so what can president trump do to alleviate tensions there and bring peace to the region here to weigh in, geraldo rivera has a new book we'll talk about. also you reported obviously all around the world but particularly. geraldo: gaza is the world's largest concentration camp and
6:25 am
recognize that this violence is something that could happen every day in gaza. there are almost 2 million palestinians stuffed in an area 25 miles long by five miles wide and the israelis control the border, the electricity, jobs, i mean it really is a melancholy place. pete: the keepers of the concentration place are hamas not israel. geraldo: who controls the fences though pete? pete: but to call that concentration camp, that is really slanted. geraldo: that approach, what is slanted is to say that israelis or israel is being afflicted or attacked from the militants in gaza without recognizing there are 2 million palestinians in gaza with no hope, they have no future. their lives have been controlled since the 1967 war, and the president must reenergize the peace process. that's the real point i think.
6:26 am
if you can ignore the west bank and gaza for days and days and months and even years, then suddenly something like this happens, and people remember oh, yes, this is occupied tort territory. pete: you can't negotiate with hamas. they're a terrorists organization that says they want to wipe israel off the map. geraldo: pete i won't even argue because this is one of those things -- abby: this reminds me, geraldo of so many families today including my own and we were talking about this in the commercial break where there is division. there's division right now in politics and i want to get to your book, the geraldo show because we've been talking about roseanne on this show and she's someone that opens up about her politics and you say you relate to that because you're apart of a family where a lot of people have different perspectives and some types it's challenging. geraldo: i just mentioned to the major that sometimes it never meets with palestinian and israel is one example but the roseanne show was also telling
6:27 am
the story of the rivera family because here is roseanne, a trump supporter and her sister hates trump. translate that to my family and millions of other families. i support the president and i can divide by differences on policy with the president for my support of the man and the office i think you only get one president at a time. i'm honored that my old friend is now one of the 45 men in the history of the republic who holds that office. my wife cannot. she really can't stand his policy. she can't separate the man from the actions and these policies, so i think that that conflict that tension that division that's reflected in the roseanne show is something that's a story that's the great american story i think of certainly of the age of trump and this era. abby: and so many people can relate to. pete: i bet your own family abbey if i'm not mistaking. abby: there are a lot of us a lot of opinions and background so that's what makes this country so great and being able to talk about those differences and what we love about you
6:28 am
because you're an open book and now you have it. geraldo: i have a book to open. abby: you talk about it all and all of the things you've been through. geraldo: the big part of this book, the soul of the book is what happened after 9/11. when i left my top-rated high- paid job at nbc, my desk job to come here to fox and be a war correspondent. why did i do that? because my friends and neighbors were killed on 9/11, my city was savaged on 9/11 and i wanted very much to go after the people that inflicted that pain and suffering on us and i became a fox news senior war correspondent and went there 11 extended assignments in afghanistan and iraq and finally after 10 years i was blessed to be on the air the night we learned that osama bin laden who had inflicted so much pain and suffering on us had finally been killed. ed: real quick i got to interrupt you because i don't know if you know this but the night he was killed i raced to the white house and they had
6:29 am
what they call a hard pass, you happened to be in washington and i was standing at the gate inside the white house all these reporters were trying to get in and they're like you're not on the list and this guy is like sorry we know who you are and your face but we can't let you in. there are people outside celebrating thousands of student s outside and this guy talked his way into the white house gates. i watched it happen. you didn't have the right pass to get in do you remember that? geraldo: i had no pass. i said i've got to find my crew my brother craig and my crew and they actually let me in the white house. that never happens and then i got there and i was reporting and in a sea of people who were so skill rated by the fact that we finally got this. abby: they got to crackdown with that white house. ed: they will let anybody in. pete: geraldo we may disagree on some things but you're a patriot and there's amazing stories it's a great book. geraldo: i appreciate that. abby: thanks, geraldo. ed: hundreds of sheriffs around the country writing to congress demanding tighter border

6:46 am
sheriff mark daniels of coachy county, arizona both of you thank you for being here this morning, i'll start with you. you're on a border state in arizona. what is the status right now and how has it changed under the leadership of president trump? >> well good morning, everyone. thanks for having me. you know, with this president having the will to secure the border the message has been very strong and is felt both from the cartells to the law enforcement that work that border. i know the border patrol agents i work with, our governor, local law enforcement we're excited. it's overdue. we need to have a secure border in this country. i mean when you look at almost 90% of illegal drugs that come into our country our communities are coming through the southern border we need to have a secure border so having a president like president trump whose stated we need to have a secure border and putting that will forward we're very excited. pete: sheriff smith the other part of this letter is talking about sanctuary cities and the
6:47 am
implication of that on state and local and federal law enforcement. talk to us a little bit sheriff smith about in your experience in colorado or your experience of other sheriffs elsewhere what are the consequences of sanctuary city policies? >> thank you, pete that is also a very important issue because as they've drawn these sanctuar ies and, you know, really put peace officers in the middle of this political fight and potentially punish law enforcement officers simply for asking questions of a victim, witness, or suspect, doing that makes our communities less safe. pete: sheriff you say even the a clu has local sheriffs in their sight. what do you mean by that? >> absolutely. the inquiries and the lawsuits come on a regular basis when sheriffs are simply trying to work together with our federal partners to work together for community safety, we're routinely sued or attacked through their press releases or they send folks after us and it
6:48 am
makes it very difficult and that's where we ask for our partners with ice to stand with us when we have aclu lawsuits coming on a regular basis. pete: sheriff briefly to close critics still say these walls don't work. what's your experience on the border? >> well they do work. they're a symbol of trespass number one that tells folks you can't come across. it's illegal to come across here and i've got to say with sheriff smith adding if i could add-on to that also is the fact that the fight on the front line at the border between local, state and federal and then to see these sanctuary cities that invited them and encourage them to come to their town is very discouraging in fact it's insulting. pete: sheriffs thank you for your service for writing that letter and your time this morning we appreciate it. >> thank you. pete: well, up next if you build it, they will come. the classic movie field of dream s is now a vacation destination, watch. >> if you build it, we will come the best simple dishes ever?
