this weekend. >> i don't know if this is much to claim asylum as it is getting to the united states ♪ sometimes i get a good feeling ♪ yeah ♪ i get a feeling that i never, never, never had before ♪ pete: we have a great reporter on the couch with us that we do not want to replace. his name is griff jenkins. excited to have you. griff: good morning. pete: the jet strappe saints quk griff jenkins great hair. not as good as griff jenkins. hairdo, new, improved. griff: longer, typically working so hard to get that you news i haven't had time to get a hair cut. she said we are doing something with all that hair today. email us at foxnews.com if
you like the new hair. abby: you look fabulous. griff: i brought a report from the house oversight intelligence. pete: they didn't find any collusion did, they, griff. a lot of pages there up all night reading it. abby: thank you for joining us on this saturday morning and, of course, there is a lot of news to get to. peace on the peninsula after north and south korea announced an end to the decades long war. many cannot help but actually give president trump the credits pete piatt you say they can't help but give him credit. usually it's they can't help but not give him credit. so blindly obvious that the conditions that created this moment were induced by the approach of this president that people just have to say well, i have to admit it the opportunity here was created by american leadership. this is president trump yesterday on this korean deal that's burgeoning. listen. >> i want to congratulate
the republic of korea on its historic summit with north korea. we're encouraged by president moon and kim jong un's expressed goal of complete denuclearization of the korean peninsula. i will be meeting with kim jong un in the coming weeks. we look forward to that. and hopefully it will be productive. we seek a future of peace, prosperity and harmony for the whole korean peninsula. not only a brighter future for the people of korea but the people of the world. we are in but pursuit of that goal. we will not repeat the mistakes of last administrations. maximum pressure will continue until denuclearization occurs. griff: let me just give a context here. that is the way this is being interpreted around the world. the threat of nuclear north korea threatens the entire planet and the australian prime minister turnbull says it was not only president
trump's efforts but the tough stance he took demanding total denuclearization is what brought us there. not only with countries like north korea and south korea, but with china and russia and getting everyone essentially short of iran or getting on board. this is why you are getting comments from the foreign minister to south korea saying it was president trump and his techniques that did it here is the south korean foreign minister. >> i think clearly, you know, credit goes to president trump. he has been determined to come to grips with this from day one. my president also since day one. and i think the presidents moon and trump have worked very closely together. sometimes in complementary. sometimes in different messaging. but the level of consultations and the confidence between the two leaders has been instrument
strum mental in bringing us to this point. pete: cnn wasn't ready for that interview. abby: how do you push back on that coming from the prime minister of south korea. you are saying no one has talked this tough there was criticism we were going to go to a war with north korea. i think president trump and his team knew what they were doing the whole time. the classic art of the deal. sort of what we are seeing play out with trade war or potential trade war with china. you throw everything out there and intimidate them and make them feel like we could go to war. and they end up walking back and you get something more in the end. pete: absolutely. they took on the toughest problem that president obama told them they have had. remember when obama left office he told trump north korea will be your most urgent problem. instead of doing it conventional. fire and fury. exercises. pressure on china. they gave the man 2009 peace prize for extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and
cooperation between people. is that not exactly what president trump has just done? griff: let's point out though. griff: absurd. they would be throwing obama a freakin' parade in d.c. if he had accomplished this moment. we should bask in the fact it was a new approach from this president that created it. griff: democrats are the only group of individuals who are not even acknowledging the fact that they have brought negotiations on the 38th parallel for which they have been at war for six and a half decades. we now have democrats preoccupying themselves in washington with a character assassination which many are pointing out led by senator jon tester of montana who is in perhaps one of the toughest races of this election attacking ronny jackson. the white house doctor who was nominated. >> who has now withdrawn his name for the v.a. secretary. you have to feel for this guy and listen to president trump and he is feeling for
him because this is someone who has served our country. he has been dragged through the mud so publicly. and now we are finding that many of these accusations, there is no there there. and you feel for him. because, what happens now? where does he go? obviously he goes back and continues to be the doctor. this is not fair to do to someone. pete: do you know why president trump and others call cnn fake news? they go wall-to-wall on anonymously sourced accusations as fact. put a banner up there and make someone look bad. what happened here with ronny jackson. they took anonymous sources from jon tester and said this is exactly what ronny jackson did. first, we are going to play what donald trump said about ronny jackson yesterday and then play some sound from cnn. listen first of all to trump on ronny jackson. >> ronny jackson, admiral doctor, is one of the finest men that i have met over the last long period of time. these were false accusations about a great man, about a man that's given his life to this country and to the
military. a brave man. he would have been a great leader. >> we are learning this morning that the secret service now says it has no record of an incidents that the media has been reporting all week. they finally now look -- ask the secret service, did this happen? the secret service is a very -- we are going to have dan bongino on. we will ask him about it later on in the program. abby: accused of being at secret service party and driving home drunk and getting in an accident. now they say that never happened. they looked into this. this is what the media has been looking at in the past week. take a look at some these moments in the media. >> they claim jackson was intoxicated and banging on the door of a female employee. >> you can be woken up at the. >> you can be woken up for a national natural disaster. this is serious for any one of the president's traveling staff not to mention his doctor. >> drinking on the job to overprescribing medications that got him the nic flame
candy manual among his subordinates. >> this is going to be ronny jackson's reputation that is going to continue to get sullied. abby: that is a reminder, i think, griff, for reporters. have you got to be careful. you have got to know the facts before you go out there. these are people's lives on the lines. if it wasn't about politics, which obviously it was, why not go to the white house behind closed doors and say we have got concerns about this guy. can you take a look into him and make sure is he properly vetted before we get to vote on him? no, they didn't do that they went so publicly so the media. that's why i say that's not fair to do to someone. griff: when you talk about facts. this is an individual been there for two previous presidents. not like a newcomer. they looked at the facts. he was involved in three automobile incidents. none of which he was found at fault and none of which involved alcohol. when you sling the drunk driving accusations, it's a serious misjudgment. poor judgment in your life. it questions your, you know,
credibility. but this is a guy who has established that credibility over the course of previous administrations and now has had this accusation slung at him for which -- pete: where is the credibility for cnn? what if i was to say right now i just got an email from a constituent of jon tester, do you know what i find out? he drinks all the time when he is home on constituent breaks. i got it from a constituent. he told me that now it's live on fox news channel. anybody can say anything. abby: an anonymous source: pete: for cnn and msnbc to do what they is not even journalism. it's utterly irresponsible and smear campaign on a person's character. and look for facts later. secret service that never happened. tell that to the man who just got smeared for three days. abby: ultimate question is this person qualified to do the job. can you dig so deeply into so many different things. dig in for the job is he put forth for and so if he is qualified for that let him have a hearing and ask the right questions.
griff: the damage is already done. too late for that. griff: that's the thing the damage is already done. amazing. abby: we have a lot of news clearly this morning. i do want to bring you other headlines we are following starting on a serious note with a fox news alert. this is a heart breaking one. a terminally ill toddler at the center of intense legal battle has passed away. 23 month old alfie evans losing fight five days after being removed from life support. story getting worldwide attention after the supreme court ruled against last ditch effort receive medical care at vatican hospital despite being granted citizenship. golden state killer appears in court shackled to a chair. d'angelo charged with the murders of newly wed couple after 40 year manhunt. the police officer is accused of at least 10 other murders and dozens of rapes in california in the 70's and 80's. police found him by using crime scene d.n.a. and

griff: moving to the tease. from president trump's big meetings with foreign leaders to the korean summit it's been a big week in news. >> kim jong un was -- he really has been very open and i think very honorable. griff: how are the american people responding? we have the dials you will only see here. griff: plus, president trump welcoming team u.s.a. to the white house but some of the team's biggest names they bail on the visit. the resistance continues. the stars who skipped out ahead ♪ you find nothing that he can't fix with wd-40 and a craftsman wrench.

saying kim jong un has acted honorably. what did the americans think of all of this? griff: lee carter is partner of maslansky and partners. she put the week to the dials. abby: it was a busy week. let's start with north korea. that was probably the biggest news of the week. president trump calling kim jong un honorable. watch this. >> we have been told directly that they would like to have the meeting as soon as possible, and we think that's a great thing for the world. kim jong un was -- he really has been very open, and i think very honorable from everything we're seeing. >> you can see there, there was a split between how people reacted. generally pretty favorable. republicans an a. independents a b and democrats a c. it wasn't that he called kim jong un honorable. it was more about the fact that things are moving forward and people are
seeing progress being made in relationships with kim jong un. certainly with north and south korea. we saw a lot happen this week. pretty favorable. most surprises there that democrats are really willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. that's not something we have seen in a while. griff: my favorite story of the week. i reported on it all week long. that is the bromance between president trump and french president emmanuel macron. take a look at this montage. >> mr. president, they are all saying what a great relationship we have. >> thank you. [laughter] >> i like him a lot. it's really great to be with you and you are a special friend. thank you. >> thank you. >> you did a good job. did a great job. >> thank you. >> thank you very much. >> we do have a very special relationship. in fact, i will get that little piece of dandruff off. little piece. we have to make him perfect. he is perfect. abby: that was a great
montage. >> republicans gave this a plus. independents yellow line b plus and democrats even gave it a c. sort of like cringe a little on the dandruff comment. other than that, first of all, people love to see our leaders having fun. second of all, it really seemed like the guys are getting along, and that was something that i think people were surprised about, especially after the climate accord. especially after that aggressive hand shake that happened the last time they met. people were pleased to see us getting along with our allies and gave trump a lot of credit for it. abby: there are some awkward moments when world leaders get together. it was refreshing to see friends what is seemed like. >> absolutely. abby: james comey has been everywhere. bret baier had a great interview with james comey the other night. at one point they talk about leaking and here is how that went. >> did you leak other things to mr. richman. >> the reason i'm smiling, bret. i don't consider what i do with mr. richman a leak. i didn't consider it part of an fbi file. all of the things i talked
about. >> bret: you wrote it as fbi director. it was a work product. >> no, it was not. >> bret: you said in the memos you said i don't do sneaky things, i don't leak, i don't do weasel moves. but we can argue what a leak is but that's a leak, isn't it? >> it's not. abby: not a leaker. how could that play. >> you could barely see the democrat line because of that back drop. democrats gave this about a b minus not that great. republicans gave it a d overall. if he would have stopped talking after the george stephanopoulos interview he would have been better off. independents pulled back their support for mr. comey. they used to think he was pretty honest and now not sure what to believe. it's not playing out well for him. it's not helping his cause. if he is trying to be credible and authentic. people are giving him doubts. surprising. big shift in a week. griff: sneak one last one in here. house minority leader nancy pelosi talking about impeevment. >> i don'about --
imeachment. imeachment iimpeachment is a vey serious matter it has to be a bipartisan initiative. i don't think we have the information to go to that place and i discourage any discussion of impeachment. on a political side, i think it's a gift to the republicans to talk about impeachment. what we want to talk about is what they're doing to undermine working families in our country and what we are doing to increase their payroll and lower their cost. >> not really all that resonate. pretty bland for most folks. people said you should either move on from impeachment or into your message. she couldn't help but make that dig to republicans. overall can you see there independents and republicans both gave her c minus because she pulled back on impeachment message. seems stuck on going after republicans. going after the president.

ensuring effective border security as the vice president visited the texas-mexico border in february. pete: sounds way better than the white house correspondence dinner. just my two cents: violence on u.k. campus can move forward. two groups allegedly discriminateating against conservative speakers like ben shapiro and ann coulter. brown is one of the plaintiffs in the case and face to face with far left. there you have it there far left protesters when shapiro spoke at berkeley last fall. he joins me now. spencer, good morning. powerful photo there that says a lot about what's been going on at berkeley and elsewhere. bias against conservative speakers. violence the university says you are inviting it give us an overview of this case, please. >> yeah. so what we had a ruling on this week is the case we filed almost a year ago now which basically just highlights the two policies that the university of california at berkeley has put in place. and used basically only the censor conservatives.
these two policies gave the administrators the ability to determine who gets to enjoy free speech on that campus and who does not. and, of course, as we have seen time and again it was the conservative speakers who were silenced while liberal speakers were given basically free reign on the campus. pete: you say there is a high profile speaker policy that ultimately leads to fees against conservative speakers and they say we have to spend all this money on security so as a result there is a bias against conservative groups. have you seen the policy used for left wing speakers at all? >> hardly. the high profile speaker's policy was especially nefarious. unwritten and unpublished. the administrators there at u.k. berkeley used it to apply a curfew to ban conservatives speaking after 3:00 p.m. ban them from certain venues on that campus and continually was used to silence speakers like david horowitz and ann coulter. then the school sun substituted that policy with major events polingal policy and
shut down ben shapiro after young conservatives brought him in. pete: i assume there is not a lot of conservative speech before 3:00 p.m. as with which is a problem. here is the statement from berkeley on the fees. they say the campus strongly contend that the fees charged were lawful and appropriate and denied any such secret policy existed and continue to strongly dispute any claims related to that issue. a big win here and sad this is a win is that a san francisco judge upheld your lawsuit and said it can go forward. i'm guessing berkeley was hoping that that a liberal judge would side with them. but the facts are strong enough that the case is moving forward. >> yeah. absolutely. what we found is the judge allowing this case to move forward on first and 14th amendment claims that the school was acting in a way that violated the student's rights to have free speech, to due process and equal protection. so we are really looking forward to finally giving conservative students their day in court. this is a win not just for concerns and free speech but
all students at berkeley. won't have to fear in the future that the school is going to suddenly decide their views are unpopular, uunwanted and then they will be banned too. >> spencer brown we will follow this lawsuit closely and the next conservative speaker which you have at berkeley which i'm sure is coming down the pike. keep us posted there as well. thank you. >> you got it. pete: this convicted cop killer set free. and the powerful response from the police union who fought to keep him behind bars. and remember when dni james clapper said this? >> i didn't have any contact with media until after i left the government on the 20th of january. >> so you didn't leak anything about the dossier to any media? >> no. pete: that is a lie. well a new report finds he probably did lie about that. he was talking with some folks over at cnn it turns out before inauguration day. dan bongino here to react. plus, jason chaffetz, karl

house. here to react to that and other topics we will bring in dan bongino former nypd officer. former secret service agent and host of the dan bongino show as well as an nratv tributer. thanks for being here. we appreciate it. in the middle of all of, this, you have this report that griff is holding in his hand, many, many pages, congressional report that's been largely declassified. within it, there is a little nugget about james clapper. the esteemed james clapper. we will play a sound of what james clapper said on cnn and read from the report and get you to react. this is what james clapper said as a flashback before about his role in the media. >> i didn't have any contact with the media until after i left the government on the 20th of january. i don't queet understand at least what i have read that somehow i leaked about the dossier. >> let me guess so you didn't leak anything about the dossier to any media? >> no, not -- i mean, i talked about it after i left
the government but not during that period and certainly not between the 6th of january and the 10th when the president-elect himself talked about it. pete: he said he leaked it after. the report from the house committee says this clapper acknowledge would discussing the dossier with cnn journalist jake tapper and admitted he might have spoken with other journalists on the same topic. tappehis discussion may have happened with others as well. dan? >> >> pete, do you understand what a conniving snake this guy is? let's walk through what he did here. they needed to report on the dossier the media and the democrats. here's the problem, pete, the dossier was false. it was bogus. it was unverified junk. even the slime bag media folks couldn't report on it without getting into some serious liability. so they concocted this genius scheme, these sickos,
clapper tells james comey in january, dates are right. go up and brief donald trump and tell him about this dossier. clapper then goes and leaks to cnn that this briefing happened about the dossier. knowing what, pete? that everybody is going to go there is a dossier and then start reporting on it. conveniently buzzfeed then puts out the dossier just a few days later. what a bunch of slime bags. abby: at the same time, dan, you look at that interview that we had on fox here with james comey. bret baier asked some great questions. the one he didn't have the answer to was who funded this dossier that we are talking about in the reason i think this is so important is because this dossier that ultimately led to what we are now seeing play out in the mueller investigation. if you are head of the fbi, isn't one of the most important jobs of yours to know the evidence before did you go into an investigation? where the evidence came from. >> think about this. you are the most powerful, federal law enforcement official in the country. you are the fbi director.
have you looked at a document so sensitive, the dossier, that you have deemed it appropriate to brief the president on it. and you never asked who produced the document? does this make any sense to you at all what's going on? listen. given all possible explanations except the one that's the most pars moneyous. here is the one that is simple right here. jim comey is not telling the truth period, full stop. griff: let me ask you another what's happening with ronnie jackson the white house doctor withdrawn his name for secretary of the v.a. first, do you feel like this is a political hit job and, secondly, do you know him, the secret service has now said they are weighing in on the facts of his accusations against him. have you ever met him? i have a long history with ronnie. i have a lot of love for. this is one of the most disgusting, horrifying putrid episodes of swamp
character assassination i have ever seen in my life. griff, let me tell you something right now. no one asked me to speak about ronnie. no one in the administration. no one. zero people have contacted me and asked me to defend ronni. i do this and go on this show defending twitter and my own show defending ronny he is a patriot that helped so many. jon tester is that righted this witch-hunt into ronny jackson should be embarrassed. is he a conniving snake. he should resign from office doing. this this was a good man. i watched him help so many people on the road selflessly over and over. he puts his name out there. listen go, after him on his politics. that's fair game. making up lies about this guy unbelievably disgusting. pete: should the secret service have come out sooner with the facts we don't have any record of this? this never happened? >> well, griff, just to be
clear, i don't speak for the secret service but did i work there and i know how these things work. that took a little bit of time. it's not that easy. you have to go out and talk to people on these trips. i was on the road with ronny. i remember what he did for people. when i wanted to go to medical school it was ronny every step of the way saying how can i help you? what can i do for you while he was basically working two full-time jobs. this is a good man. abby: dan, always good to see you. >> thanks. abby: turning now to other headlines we are following and a fox news alert. an arizona police officer killed in cold blood by a suspected carjacker. officer jesus car dove have a shot multiple times after pulling over a driver following an armed carjacking. the nogales police department reeling from the loss of one of their own. >> it feels like nightmare. i'm frustrated. i'm mad. abby: the suspect right here
identified as david are a cordova leaves behind a pregnant fiance and three other children. that is heart breaking. also, this new u.s. ambassador to germany ric grenell speaking out for the first time since his confirmation. he wants to help president trump achieve one of his goals getting nato members to pay their fair share. >> i thought up close today is he a master negotiator. he -- president trump is very good at what he does. and in negotiating about this issue, he is very tough, he is very fair. abby: grenell was finally confirmed on thursday after his nomination was held up for seven months by senate democrats. abby: president trump congratulating team u.s.a. at the white house celebrating olympic and paralympic accomplishments. >> you made us very proud and many of you came home as champions wearing bronze,
silver or a gold medal. today on behalf of the united states, i want to thank every olympian and paraolympian. abby: not all faking skaters made that trip figure skater adam rippon said he would not stand with people who discriminate. >> i think lindsey vaughn skipped the medal ceremony, too. griff: didn't watch. don't know. pete: didn't win. she didn't make the medal ceremony because she didn't win. rick: she is awesome. amazing skier. abby: can't deny that rick, what's going on? pete: where will would he be skiing? rick: almost nowhere now. abby: i'm happy about that. rick: temps not that bad everywhere. a bit of a cooler day see the temps as you are waking up here. chicago 36 not getting too, too warm. overall precipitation not that bad. pretty dry to start the weekend. this little disturbance you
see here cutting across the eastern great lakes behind that is where the cooler air is and that will infiltrate parts of the northeast tomorrow. this has been our overall pattern for the last say, well, at least month and a half or so. cooler air across the east and that has kept the severe weather down. the tornadoes down. take a look at this. these are the tornadoes by state. oklahoma, kansas, nebraska. zero tornadoes so far this year. tornado alley and they have had nothing. i think we will start to see that change by tuesday and wednesday. severe storms setting up across the east. also means the eastern part of the country heating up and humidity going up. abby: rick, we can be friends again. pete: we are always friend. and correction lindsey vaughn did win a bronze. abby: you looked at the facts. pete: i got it within 30 seconds on the internet. history is made on the korean peninsula. how did president trump's tough talk affect this? retired general anthony tata says a lot and he is next.
abby: handshake seen around the world. the leaders of north and south korea agreeing to end decades long war. griff: president trump touting the summit for encouraging for denuclearization of the korean peninsula? is it the president trump's tough talk that led to the agreement? pete: author of new book joins us now. reaper ghost target. you see imagery and see diplomacy to work. in order to see diplomacy to work there is a lot of stuff that happened behind the scene. unpack why a moment like that happened and who
deserves the credit for it. well, you know, team, it's good to be with you this morning. this is the 12th great lakes since the end of the korean war. first time we have a president and administration that understands how to synchronize the elements of national power to apply as president trump calls it a maximum pressure. so you have had diplomatic pressure. informational pressure. all these tweets, everybody kind of laughed off. you know that got under kim jong un's skin. have you military pressure where have you three carrier strike groups in the sea of japan air force of bombers on guam and 28,000 ground forces on the korean peninsula. that's a very credible threat behind the diplomacy, behind the information campaign. and then the economic sanctions. and so the synchronization of those four pieces have applied significant pressure
to kim jong un. and, when you look at what we did in syria and how we have defeated isis, what have you got is a president who has said what is he going to do and he does what he says. and so it is not lost on kim jong un. the president unleashed the military to crush isis. that he responded very forcefully twice against syria. and he says hey, by this spring, if we don't have a deal, then, you know, something is going to go down. that's where i think we have a president that is really doing what he says. abby: these images we were just showing the audience pretty i didn't know credible. think about the first time since 153 that a member of the kim dynasty stepped foot on south korean official. you look at kim jong un there he is smiling. he seems happy. he seems really motivated to make a change here. what happened in the last six months and what is in it for north korea? because it was just a few
months ago that he seemed so angry with the west. saluting off ballistic missiles. it was like every morning we were reporting on another one. why does he seem so happy in this moment? >> abby, that's a great insight. i think what's happening here is kim jong un's grandfather had a vision when he came to power of self-reliance. and so he focused on self-reliance for north korea. and then kim jong un's father, kim jong il had a vision of a powerful military. so he built this massive military with artillery as a foundational piece of it. when kim jong un came in. he said i have two visions. one is for a nuclear power and one is for a strong economy. and, perhaps, kim jong un is playing off the nuclear piece so he can have a stronger economy. success has a thousand fathers and failure and orphan. you see the left giving
credit to kim jong united auto workers union's sister. maybe she went to the olympics and went back there hey, it's pretty nice down there. they have food. so, you know, so for that matter, what have you got is a lot of factors. griff: the devil is in the details. thanks for joining us. >> thank you. griff: caravan of migrants just steps away from the u.s. border ready to ask for asylum any moment now. the head of the national border patrol council brandon judd is here to react next hour. ainsley: what if you could make your coffee from your smart phone? kurt the cyberguy has that and more tech gifts from mother's day. do you believe mother's day two weeks from now? pete: true. ♪ you ♪

long. pete: professional great transition. historic moment on the korean peninsula. marking a new ear wrath peace vowing to end the korean war. abby: monumental moment coming. griff: what comes next, jillian. >> griff has never looked lovier. thought i would say that from the top. just hours after kim jong un became the first north korean leader to walk across the border into the south, a hugely symbolic gesture. president trump weighed in with his reaction. >> a lot of good things are happening with respect to north korea. president obama told me when i had the one meeting with him. he said that's your biggest problem. that's going to be the most difficult thing you have. over the last 25 years this should have been handled a long time ago. not now. this should not have been left for me to handle. >> president trump repeatedly returned to one central theme during his comments which came at a joint press conference with german chancellor merkel.
things are going to be done differently on his watch. the president took care to point out the big policy differences as he enters into negotiations with kim. most notably. he will keep the maximum pressure campaign of economic sanctions turned all the way up until kim follows through on denuclearization. he will also keep the military option firmly on the table. but, perhaps most importantly,. >> we will not repeat the mistake of past administrations. >> the president also revealed the list of locations for his summit with kim has been whittled down to just two. reminding the press it was just a few months ago the media and former clinton bush and obama officials were ringing alarm bells about the trump administration bringing the world to the brink of nuclear war. guys? abby: all right. griff: jillian, thank you for that she is my neighbor in the office. thanks, gill i can't believe. >> i can't wait to get griff and his hair back in d.c.
abby: we might keep him. thank you, gillian. the most important part we played was president trump at the very end of his remarks if they do not agree to denuclearize we will walk away. it's important to make that point because everyone is so excited. this is historic. this is a huge moment as you are seeing right there. the first time this has happened in decades. it's important to point out we don't know ultimately how this will end. and what's going through kim jong un's mind. pete: it's the beginning of a moment and you don't get the moment until it starts. you have to continue to say maximum pressure will stay until we see verifiable proof that denuclearization is actually happening. griff, on capitol hill. there aren't many moments when you see not just republicans but actually a few democrats admitting the obvious. griff: producers correct me i said democrats weren't on board. i think there is skepticism on authenticity but they are acknowledging the obvious which is we are getting from world leaders to democrats, republicans and the media.
take a listen. >> whatever the reasons to get us here, the optics here sure look pretty good this morning. is this a feather in the cap for donald trump. >> i think the president deserves credit for getting us this far. no president has put as much pressure on north korea as donald trump has. and that's a good thing. >> president trump definitely deserves much of the credit. >> let me say. this it's quite possible that the strategy that he used in basically trying to bully this guy prompted this guy to come to the table or was helpful with that. >> if north korea actually ends its nuclear program and you bring peace to this peninsula after 70 years, donald trump deserves a nobel peace prize. pete: that's a fact. you read through the lines of what they're saying. it pains them to admit it's the case. griff: like if a car went off a cliff you have to acknowledge the car went off the cliff. you know, what's really going to be -- the devil is iin the details as you point
out, abby. we will see whether or not kim jong un takes measures towards denuclearization and the president saying i won't stand for anything less. what's fascinating is i was reporting this week and getting reports that they were piping through the north korean surface the most controlled government source. they are playing their leader calling for the denuclearization of the korean peninsula. they have heard that for the first time in six and a half decades. abby: that's probably the most important channel to follow right now to figure out how they are communicating to their own people. griff: just that accomplishment of president trump getting them to hear an opinion completely contrary to the way they have been raised for generations is stunning. abby: someone who has not had the best week of his life, unfortunately is dr. ronny jackson. he was up for the v.a. secretary and and you have been following i'm sure in the news this week. he has been dragged through the mud on allegation after allegation about, you know, being the candy man. being drunk behind the wheel. getting into accidents. well, now a report has come out saying that those
allegations, they aren't true. specifically where he was at a secret service party driving home drunk. the secret service looked into it appeared they said this never happened. pete: secret service looked into their own guy. they know these things. they realize and explained. this incident never happened. it didn't stop as we know. the cnn, msnbc, these other networks from going wall-to-wall on anonymously sourced accusations coming from a democratic senator. it's jon tester using his position on the committee to push a narrative and to say he was dragged through the mud would be unfair to mud. what they did to him was shameful. and he didn't get a chance to respond. and he didn't get a chance to prove the facts. and it was character assassination. it was an ambush. abby: we had dan bongino on he used to work with the secret service. he knew ronny jackson personally. he was fired up. here is what he told us. >> ronnie is an honorable, noble american patriot who helped some people during my
time with him in the secret service. jon tester, the senator from montana, who started this witch-hunt into ronnie jackson should be embarrassed. is he a conniving snake. he should resign from office for doing. this this was a good man. i watched him help so many people on the road selflessly over and over. he puts his name out there. go after him on his politics, that's fair game. making up lies about this guy unbelievably disgusting. griff: dan there mentioning senator tester as you point out, pete, brought all of this saying 20 anonymous sources told him. this cnn he didn't name those sources. here's the point tester in january was down 18 points in his vulnerable senate race in a state that trump won. this is based out of political desperation and the take away is what appears to be a good man has had his career not only
besmirched but possibly riewntd. pete: desperation is so-called journalists at other networks reporting anonymously sourced garbage for 24/. i can pull up your phone and say i got a email from your friend. your friend from montana tells me your friend jon tester is drunk when he is back home. that's not true. what if i said it on fox news channel and everybody believed it and brought down a nominee. there should be some level of journalistist responsibility. our journalists do that here. i don't think they do that over there. abby: remember when you needed name as a source. two names, three names to back up a report? times have completely changed. griff: tester named 20 anonymous sources to anderson cooper. pete: griff, i have 21 just came in. abby: just sad what's happened to im. i do want to bring you other headlines we are following closely and another incredibly sad story. a terminally ill toddler at the center of a legal patel habattlehas passed away.

release them and then they are never going to show up to their court date which is going to be two years from now which is ridiculous, that's what they're hoping for. but, whether you are right, left, closed minded, open-minded, in the middle, you have to say what president trump has done is nothing less than miraculous when he has completely forced a drop in illegal immigration in this country. he is doing a great job on this particular topic. and he has got secretary nielsen that is backing him up on this issue. griff: brandon, the caravan leaders emailed me yesterday and part of their statement says that they demand their rights as refugees, my grants and human beings be respected and that is, of course, a fundamental part of what this country of immigrants was built upon. but, when we look at the problems on the border, when you look at the number of ms-13 gang members and other
violence coming over. tell me how bad you think that situation is with respect to what we are dealing with tomorrow? >> how many more americans need to lose their lives to illegal immigrants until we take a stand? we respect everybody that crosses the border whether they cross through the ports of entry or whether they cross between the ports of entry illegally, we respect them. we take their rights into consideration. which is why we have the catch and release program, which has to end. but to say that we don't respect people's rights is completely false. what happens is they don't respect our laws. thethey don't show up to their court dates. they cross the border illegally. we take them into custody. we give them a court date. expecting that they are going to show up for their asylum hearing and they just don't. they disappear into the shadows of society and we never hear from them again until they break the laws. griff: brandon, very quickly, because this point is never made in reporting. will your agents out there
on the border tomorrow will they come if they come help those that may be suffering from dehydration and other ailments? will they also go into a care taking mode. >> we had an agent that lost his life going into the colorado river trying to save a chinese national that crossed the border illegally. we always do the best that we can to care for all of those people that we come in contact with. you know, the reporting that they want to payment us as bad people simply because we're law enforcement and we try to enforce the laws. we do a good job. griff: brandon judd, thanks for joining us. it will be interesting to see what happens tomorrow. i will stay in touch with you. thank you, sir. >> thank you. griff: tv host mike rowe calling out the problems in our education system. how far he says it's been attacked from within. plus, the kanye west twitter firestorm is not ending. as the president now returns the rapper's praise. so is kanye highlighting america's growing political

radio talk show host. welcome to you all. thank you for being here this morning. >> thank you, good morning. pete: this exchange between canal yea and the president chance the rapper and candace owens. from the outside, can look like a gigantic conversation being had inside the black community about free thinking and the democratic party is that happening and is it creating an opportunity. >> i honestly think that kanye west right now is being used as a political pawn to continue this trump movement. and i think that this just is another disingenuous and quite frankly insulting political strategy that we see both on the left and on the right. and which politicians pander to black voters by using cultural influences to gain their support while really doing nothing for the black community. i don't think that african-americans are upset at the fact that chance the rapper or kanye actually support conservatives. i think it's the time of
conservatives that they are actually supporting. we have a president who will not denounce white supremacy or white nationalist. pete: he has denounced white supremacy and white nationalism. >> but he has also said that there is good and bad people within the white nationalist network which i just think is wrong. pete: there are good and bad people everywhere. >> there are not good white nationalists. pete: i didn't say that i said everywhere. he was denounced white nationalism he has done it many times. darren, it was actually though, you want to talk about using moments, it was kanye that started. this he is the one that responded to candace owens. he tweeted this recently he said i haven't done enough research on conservatives to be called one. i'm just refusing to be enslaved by monolithic thought. is that what this is about free-thinking and the ability to speak your mind. >> i think free thinking is the important part of this. look at celebrity market. highly leftist democrats and they always have this provoking way of getting
african-americans into the democratic party no matter what they are doing. but the truth of the matter is you have to take into consideration kanye's view. kanye understands that there is a lot of positive things that the president is doing. when we look at socioeconomic development within the trump administration, it's really benefited the african-american community. when we look at a lot of these issues that the african-american communities is experiencing such as crime, we see a tremendous -- we see precipitous drops in crime in the african-american communities as a result of trump being in office. you have to take into consideration when donald trump, excuse me, when president obama was in office, he incarcerated more african-americans than any other president with exclusion of bill clinton. we go back to the 1994 crime bill by -- that was enabled by bill clinton we had monstrous numbers of african-americans incarcerated as a result of that. trump is moving forward. we are looking in excess of 3% g.d.p. and therefore i see the black community is benefiting.
when i look at what kanye stated, i think he is just looking at the landscape as what is happening to benefit the african-american community. pete: kanye tweeted about chicago saying this obama was in office for 8 years and nothing in chicago changed. is this a reflection of the fact that people are saying i have been pandered to for a long time or my celebrities have been put up on a pedestal but my life hasn't changed. >> yes. and let me also say this story is a perfect demonstration of the hypocrisy and the extreme intolerance of the liberal left. they say we want black people's voice to stand up and speak out and then the moment a black man stands up and says something contrary to the agenda of the left, he is immediately met with swift and cruel punishment. for me to say i am black, but i am not a democrat is seen as betrayal in the black community. i lost almost all of my black friends during the 2016 election because there
is absolutely no room for independent thinking in the black community when it comes, especially to politics. i remember michelle obama being on tv 1 which is a predominantly black television station and she said it does not matter who is on that ballot. it does not matter what they said. it does not matter what they have done. you just vote democrat meaning shut up black people, get in line and do as you are told. it reminded me that not all overseers on plantations were white. there were black as well and they were called drivers. pete: unfortunately i'm being told in my ear we have to leave it right there. we will bring you back very soon. this is a conversation that needs to happen. >> it definitely needs to happen. >> it is happening and i'm glad it is. pete: thank you very much for your time. thank you. did james comey's book tour help catch the former fbi director in a lie about leaking? former congressman jason chaffetz is here to react next. plus, we have got in a different sort of approach,

look, devin nunes and trey gowdy and mike conway and tom ruiny, they have done an amazing amount of work. they had more than 70 interviews. countless members, hours of testimony. they have pored through literally hundreds of thousands of documents and still at the end of the day they have nothing. and adam schiff and the democrats can say well, we need to keep going but there is just nothing there there. griff: congressman, you mentioned 70 witnesses. they had more than 20 subpoenas. they reviewed more than 3,000 documents. in the report they lay out their methods as do all investigation whether republican or democrat. yet, the response has been from house minority leader nancy pelosi calling it fundamentally flawed. they didn't talk to the correct witnesses and reveal the information. i had to go back and forth a few hours with pelosi's press secretary and ask her then come on and do the show and tell us what's wrong
with it oddly she didn't come on today and neither did a single democrat. what can the democrats argue is wrong with this report? >> well, look, democrats had conclusion in the mind. the ones doing the colluding were the democrats and they are working through fusio fusionworking with people overseas pouring money in to create fake dossier. nothing happened donald trump could point to was collusion. if you look at the comey memos. he actually -- you know, his interaction with the president, it actually describes that the president wanted to have a full investigation of this. if there was anybody in there, but at this point we have nothing to do with collusion. abby: all right. speaking of that dossier, i'm sure you watched bret baier's interview with james comey a couple days ago the
moment that stood out for most people who funded the dossier and to many people's prize he said he didn't know, the only reason he has heard democrats funded it was through the media. this is coming from the man who was leading the fbi when all of this went down. what is your response? >> well, first of all, bret baier did a great interview and that's very probing questioning that you didn't hear anywhere else. stunning the fbi director this far after the fact doesn't understand where the funding of this came from. it is core and central to what is fundamentally flawed when they presented this document to a judge. they did not give him a full and complete picture of who was funding this document because it was bogus. it was fallacious. it did not have correct information in there. and if they knew that the opponent of donald trump, hillary clinton, and her staff was funding this, that would be central to a judge's interpretation of this. abby: do you believe he didn't know.
>> for director comey to plead egg encarnacion at this point -- yeah, that's not an excuse, for the fbi director intimately involved in pushing this forward for the fisa court for him to plead ignorance. it makes the case that he should have never been the fbi director. pete: a lot of people made that case before he was. nevertheless he is running around selling books. we appreciate your time, jason chaffetz. abby: jason, we will will bring new studio next time. griff: i look forward to that diving contest. >> i will bring my running shoes, griff. you get ready. pete: is he a running. abby: thank you. turning now to other headlines, after serving 44 years behind bars, a cold blooded cop killer is now a free man. this man, the new york city patrolman's benevolent association is outraged over the release of her man bell. >> the parole board has lost their god damn humanity to think that a murderer should walk their street. i don't want a murderer in my damn neighborhood. nor do you.

is he elected? can he be fired? can he be recalled? >> he would have to be fired or removed from office by the governor. there would have to be legal cause. and a no confidence vote, unfortunately, isn't enough, but we're going to see what the investigation reveals as well. having said that, here's the worst case scenario, we wait until 2020 when there is another election, and i have no doubt in my mind the people of broward county are going to vote him out. he beat a very popular sheriff al lambbirdy. he was a great sheriff in broward. in the meantime this is what is happening in the meantime. andrew pollock has taken this on. americans for class.org. he is trying to protect the community. we have an app. we can't wait to introduce to you in august where kids on their own can come in and do things to help protect their schools. so, you know, lots of money wasn't used by sheriff

probably the biggest news this week and potentially in decades when it comes to north and south korea peace on the peninsula. north and south korea announcing answered to the korean war. it's a time in history that you have to step back and say you know what? republicans and democrats coming together and acknowledging that. pete: as they should. previous administrations have not got then problem right. and barack obama said to trump when he left that north korea would be his most urgent problem. since then, this administration has focused on it a great deal. whether it's fire and fury. military exercises. sanctions, pressuring china to do more. tough rhetoric. diplomacy, now ultimately you see north and south korean leader come together and say a, we want to end this war still going on. just armistice. and b, we want to denuclearize the entire peninsula. again, we will see if it happens but what an amazing start. president trump spoke yesterday about the opportunity in korea a listen. >> i want to congratulate the republic of korea on its
summit with north korea. we are incouraged by president moon and kim jong un's expressed goal of complete denuclearization of the korean peninsula. i will be meeting with kim jong un in the coming weeks. we look forward to that. and hopefully it will be productive. we seek a future of peace, prosperity and harmony for the whole korean peninsula on lock in not only a brighter future for the people of korea but for the people of the world. we are in pursuit of that goal. we will not repeat the mistake of past administrations. maximum pressure will continue until denuclearization occurs. pete: very important point. abby: they are down to two locations for where the summit will take place. we haven't been given an exact date yet. who you should listen to are the leaders in north and south korea. you said listen to state tv in north korea. great place to go. foreign minister which is
essentially their secretary of state was on cnn yesterday and gave her take on why we are seeing this happen now. >> i think clearly, you know, credit goes to presidenpresident trump. he has been determined to come to grips with this from day one. my president also since day one. i think presidents moon and trump have worked very closely together. sometimes in complement. sometimes in different messaging but the level of consultations and the confidence between the two leaders has been instrumental in bringing us to this point. abby: i don't think anyone has president trump's messaging. he is his own brand. pete: huge part of it. i don't think cnn, which headquarters are resistance tv liked hearing that but it's a fair admission. we wouldn't be here without what the president did. >> not tounder score the significance. the security of the planet
has set at the 38th parallel within the last recent years as kim jong un has tested almost 100 ballistic missiles and really ramped up at a pace that all the experts says was far beyond what they thought they would do. he clearly became an even more enormous threat than the obama administration as you pointed out. but the fact is you are hearing not only from the south korean foreign minister but also the prime minister of australia and other world leaders saying it was the president's willingness to engage in very tough talk and negotiations to bring us. pete: i want to add one historic point the elites always off and on over a neville chamberlain and jimmy carter and over barack obama. do you know who history remembers? winston churchill. history remembers ronald reagan and they will remember donald trump if this peninsula is denuclearized. let's see if the nobel peace prize. they handed one out newly la

somehow i leaked about the dossier. let me guess so you didn't leak anything about the dossier to any media? >> no not -- i mean, i talked about it after i left the government. but not during that period. not and certainly tenth when the president-elect himself talked about it. abby: what is the date on there, pete? >> he was interviewed on july 17th of 2017 by the committee. james clapper. and he admitted to confirming the existence of the dossier to the media. jake tapper a few other journalist folks at cnn on january 12th of 2017. abby: that was before the inauguration? pete: sure was. turned out what he was saying in the media wasn't true and they were pushing the dossier narrative before the president was elected which fits with everything else we have heard. comey, mccabe. abby: griff, the bigger picture when we talk about this dossier and so important dossier part of the evidence that then led to what we are now seeing play out with this mueller probe on russia collusion. right?
vow got to look at the evidence. why was this investigation started? what was the evidence that was good enough to lead to that. pete: pushing it to the media so hard. abby: still so many question marks about what that evidence was, even james comey recently with our own bret baier when he asked do you know who paid for that dossier? he said i didn't know then he still says he doesn't know. the only place that he heard that it was funded by the democrats was in the media. griff: what would be fascinating to watch. watch. griff: learn from the media fbi director. griff: pointing out earlier house leader nancy pelosi said this was fundamentally. committee for that report interviewed more than 70 witnesses. we will find out. who is left to find what doesn't exist that's really where the democrats find themselves. abby: we have been talking about ronny jackson this morning because he has been dragged through the mud all week as has many of our viewers have been following and he has since withdrawn his name from being the v.a. secretary of the united
states. well, president trump is up tweeting this morning and he has made it very clear how upset he is about how all this went down. he said allegations made by senator jon tester, the senator putting out a lot of this information against admiral dr. ron jackson are proving false. the secret service is unable to confirm. in fact, they deny any of the phony democrat charges which have absolutely devastated the wonderful jackson family. tester should resign. that's a pretty strong statement there coming from president trump. pete: sure is. the nugget we know this morning is the secret service has looked into the allegations against ronny jackson when he was the white house doctor were true. he said it didn't happen. we have no records of it at all. this comes after the fact. it comes after three or four days where the irresponsible left wing media ran with allegations from john testing and smeared a good man through the mud. and now has pulled his name out of consideration for the v.a. secretary. because who wants to put up with that? he never got his court hearing. he never got his day in confirmation. and jon tester is on the
senate v.a. committee. he knew what he was doing. abby: this wasn't even about his ability to serve though, griff. these are allegations about a lot of his personal life. why not figure out if he is qualified to do that job? why not give him that hearing? let the senators ask him those tough questions and then make a decision. griff: allegations of donald trump driving involved in three automobile instances. none of which were his fault. no alcohol. and here is the point. you bring up a good point. that is the damage done to this man. when rex tillerson stepped down. he said washington is a mean place. this is a perfect example of how not only mean but very destructive. fortunately, doctor jackson is so well liked for the job he says white house he will fall back on that. this is a case john tester and i can't prove this. but certainly is interesting to point out that he is perhaps the most vulnerable senate race and he is using this. pete: lesson to any republicans. fight back. fight back immediate and hard because the left is never going to stop.
they goal after you no matter what. abby: reporters, get your facts. make sure you get your facts before you drag a decent person through the mud and drag their family through the mud. griff: remember fbi texts. recovered text messages now delivered to at least five congressional committees. texas congressman louie gohmert's judiciary committee is one of them. he will join us next. pete: we have all seen alec baldwin's portrayal of president trump. >> we have to take a hard look at mental health. which i have so much of. i have one of the healthiest mentales.

disturbing comments like the potus, the president of the united states wants to know everything we are doing? holy cow. that's what you call a smoking gun. the president wants to know? any way, all you have to do is have these guys interviewed by an fbi agent and as soon as they don't tell the truth. you have a legitimate case of felony case to bring against these fbi and doj officials. but, what also is, again, highlightside what many of us heard back before the election, when some democrats were upset that comey came out and set we are reopening the email investigation. what i heard comey was sitting on the thousands of emails that showed up in wiener's laptop and finally,
what we had heard was there were a couple of fbi agents that said comey, you either get this out there and reopen the investigation or we're going to quit. we're going to have a press conference. and we're going to disclose how you have covered up for hillary clinton. pete: sure. >> if that was the case and it seems like this evidence supports that, because it shows that actually he knew a full month before he reopened the investigation. pete: why did he wait? that's an important question. we have got to get those answers. >> we do. pete: let's show for our audience a couple exchanges between peter strzok and lisa page. strzok saying having a tough time processing tonight lis. feeling a profound sense of loss. page says i feel the same loss. i'm angry. angry and mourning. another one from may 9th, 2017 where they say we have been opening the case we

justification. this is happening all over the country. when i was a kid it was the mccarthyites on the right trying to stop free speech on campus today it's the left. i spoke the other day at the university of illinois. and there were protests against me for speaking there because i support israel. so, you know, everybody is turning everything around now and there is so much hypocrisy and the ultimate victim is both truth and civil liberties. pete: that's a great point. alan dershowitz. i know you are a busy man but here is 243 pages of non-collusion. >> that's fantastic. even if there were quote collusion. collusion isn't a crime under the federal criminal statute. that's why there should have been an independent, nonpartisan investigation to look at the role that russia played in the attempting to influence our election instead of immediately pointing fingers. that got us nowhere. abby: got it. >> take this home and study it. pete: all yours. abby: good luck with that. pete: about face from twitter. why the social media site is

taking it as being funny because the fun of "saturday night live" was always, you never knew which way they leaned politically. you kind of assumed they would baby more left and liberal but now the cat is out of the bag. they are completely against trump, which i think makes it less interesting because you know the direction that the piece is going. pete: thank you, rob schneider. griff: here's a good point. it's not just trump. if look at the character that plays jeff sessions. snl used it work really hard to try to get the impersonation down very closely. and the joke would be subtle in the sarcasm. but the woman that place jeff sessions that has this possum think is just bizarre. it's not funny. because it isn't attached to any exact moment that's actually happened. so, i think rob has a good point. for a former alumni i would be upset about it something that really was at the top of its craft and now it's been reduced to sort of this absurdity. abby: pete, there is no surprise anymore.

tweet he sent out this morning he says allegations made by senator john tester against admiral dr. ron jackson are proving false the secret service is unable to confirm in fact they denied any of the phony democrat charges which have absolutely devastated the wonderful jackson family and the great people of montana will not stand for this kind of slander when talking of a great human being admiral jackson is a kind of a man that those in montana would respect and admire and now his reputation has been shattered. not fair. tester. pete: geraldo this comes after a week, have you ever seen political concerted political attacks like this? i mean of course you have. geraldo: i have unfortunately but this is a particularly egregious example, un corroborated, anonymously sourced, you know, and it turns out to be absolutely false. i mean, it is shocking, it was wreckless, i think tester has to
answer to the voters of montana. abby: which is down by the way you look at polling and he's down most recently by 18 points a state of montana a state president trump won by 20 points geraldo: right so he's a democrat in a red state and the voters should take into consideration the fact that he apparently led the charge to assassinate the character of someone who has been admirable and nobel and a service to his country and in his duties as the white house physician and someone very close to the president, and the nominee for the va. it's tragic that the admiral has suffered this and his family has endured this but now i think that he has been vindicated at least so far as the secret service is concerned, you know, i think senator tester has to now justify. griff: is it too late like pete was pointing out earlier do you believe the secret service was too slow in getting the facts out there? geraldo: effectively yes they
were too slow obviously griff but they have a process and their bureaucracy and they want it to be meticulous so they plot ted through all of the records. he did have three fender benders , so there was some incident, but when they compared the fender benders as they were reported, and one-time a side-view mirror was swiped. nothing having to do with alcohol or drunk driving. griff: he wasn't at fault. geraldo: anything of that nature pete: but forget about the secret service being too slow. wasn't the media way too quick to run with these irresponsible allegations? you watch cnn or msnbc they were wall to wall smearing this guy. geraldo: i think the drunk driving almost which proved false was the icing. that's what really did him in, but there was also the allegations of sloppy prescription of ambien and sleep aids on air force one. as far as i know, everything the
doctor has done in retrospect has been proved as sanctioned or as appropriate, so i think that this was a smear job. whether the motivation was a political motivation or just sloppy sensationalist grabbing of headlines, tester being up for re-election i don't know. that will become clear and i think that the people of montana will make that judgment but it is a tragedy and i don't think that his nomination will ever be ressurected and i don't know if he will continue as the white house surgeon. i don't know if he'll be the physician or whether his career ends on this melancholy note. abby: geraldo you know it was a very busy week and we all sat on the front row of history yesterday when you saw for the first time in decades kim jong-un with president moon of south korea shaking hands, planting a tree together between the two countries and the question now is what has changed over the past few months and i want to play a montage, because
people are asking who gets credit for this and why are we seeing this happen and here is a lot of the folks giving praise to president trump for that. pete: even the media. >> whatever the reason to get it through the optics sure look pretty good this morning is this a feather in the cap for donald trump? >> so i think the president deserves credit for getting us this far. no president has put as much pressure on north korea as donald trump has and that's a good thing. >> president trump definitely deserves much of the credit. let me say this. it's quite possible that the strategy that he used in basically trying to bully this guy prompted this guy to come to the table or was helpful with that. >> if north korea actually ends its nuclear program and you bring peace to this peninsula after 70 years, donald trump deserves a nobel peace prize. abby: nobel peace prize. geraldo: but the funny thing is watching democrats praising the president, they try to keep the words in their mouth but when it
comes out anyway. oh, okay he did it. okay he did a great job. you know, i have been skeptical about north korea. i watched in previous efforts peace efforts where they entice the west with declarations of freezing their nuclear program or their missile testing, only once they got the fruits of the deal to then go back and advance , evolve their weapon system. this, however, has as much different feel, this feels like nixon going to china in 73, this feels historic, the fact that kim was bouncing around on the border there, with president moon, the two koreas joined holding hands, the symbolism of these simple acts is so profound and so moving given the fact that the hostilities, theoretically ended 65 years ago the korean war and yet they still have not had a peace treaty. griff: but how fast will those
same democrats watching castro who has certainly given him credit and as i pointed out earlier it's like acknowledging a car went off a cliff, you can say that car went off a cliff, how soon will they criticize him because we know the devil is in the details and it is what comes from this summit. there will be opportunities to say well it wasn't enough or it stopped short of denuclearization. how quick will they turn on him? geraldo: i don't like your metaphor of the car going off the cliff. i think that's much too negative i'd rather see this as a rocket taking off maybe that's a bad metaphor too in this case, or a good one. pete: [laughter] geraldo: i think that if kim meets president trump and if as it appears, the deal seems to be hammered out by the koreas, if our president meets him in wherever they are, mongolia i heard, or sweden, wherever they meet, i tend to think they'll stay in the region. this could be the beginning of
the end of three-quarters of a century of hostility that have destabilized the entire pacific rim and i think it's an advance forward, a historic moment and i totally believe that if this happens and they are really meaningful steps taken that the president of the united states should be nominated for the nobel peace prize. pete: would he do that? they came on to obama preemptive ly. geraldo: yeah right if it was president obama he would be on his third or fourth now. no, i would hope so. i hear the nobel committee has its own problems with sex harassment and the rest of it. griff: we'll see. geraldo: but i think this would be a wonderful wonderful gesture on the part of the nobel to say we really believe that people that advance the peace process deserve to be recognized. abby: geraldo always good to have you with us and you do have great hair geraldo. griff: better than mine. all right, coming up the
mainstream media thinks republicans should be nervous heading into the november mid-term elections but should they really be? karl rove is here to set the record straight. pete: a man who suffered a heart attack gets a chance to thank the medic who saved his life. the emotional and heartwarming encounter just ahead. >> dedication to your profession is designed to save lives and that's why and how my wife was saved by you. 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? why wait? ask your doctor about prolia.
griff: all right this week republican debbie leska won a special election for a house seat in arizona. abby: the victory should have been a good sign for the gop but the mainstream media is painting a different narrative with headlines signaling the rise of a democratic wave and the demise of the gop this november. griff: so as we march to the mid-terms should the gop be nervous here with what to watch for in this election season is former senior advisor karl rove. good morning, carl. >> good morning, griff how are
you? griff: good, so look should republicans be nervous? >> oh, absolutely they better be nervous because they're in a mid-term and they occupy the white house and traditionally what happens with very few rare occasions something different but what normally happens is the party and power loses seats. the question is how many do they lose and the more nervous you are, the fewer you're going to lose because that means you're going to go out and work hard, raise money, organize your district, campaign hard, and since, you know, incumbents win re-election more than 93% of the time i think since 1970 if you're an incumbent republican and you're nervous, then you run hard and you win re-election. abby: yeah, so you followed the map so closely when you look at the different districts or even just the states, is there a place in particular, carl, that you think represents or that will represent the mood of the country overall that we can say okay that does paint a bigger picture of how we should be thinking about how people are
feeling? >> well let me come at that question, a good question let me come at it from a slightly different direction. the question is where are these battleground races? where are the races that are up for grabs? the biggest block that we need to be concerned about is are the districts, there are 23 of them, where there is a republican congressman and hillary clinton carried their district, and they tend to be we call them orphan states. they're states that don't get a lot of attention generally in presidential election years for congressional races, places because the state is considered one way or the other, and you'll look at these in places like new york and pennsylvania, and california, and illinois. these sort of marginal districts where there's a republican member, but hillary clinton carried it and those are going to be i think that's going to ultimately be where control of the congress is going to be settled and for republicans the good news of those 23, 16 the incumbent is running for re- election and if we carry, you know, 14 or 13 of those it's
going to be very difficult for the democrats to get control of the congress. griff: carl let me ask you about a poll that says mid-terms maybe a referendum on impeachment the democrats playbook, 71% of democrat voters saying that they would like to see impeach. should they win control of the house . what do you make of that >> well this is going to be one of the dangerous things for the democrats because the democratic base wants to have in preachment they want to have people nominate people who say i'm going to go in there and impeach trump and get him out of there while following the lead of maxine waters and others but in order to win elections remember they have to carry districts that are closely split between trump and clinton, or were actually carried by trump, so in those districts, ins are going to be resist resistant to the idea we should be plunged into the political battle of impeachment so this is one of the real problems for the democrats and guess what they know it. that's why people like nancy pelosi and the democratic national chairman, perez and
schumer all saying don't talk about impeachment. you saw ram emmanuel the mayor of chicago and the architect of the 2006 democratic takeover of the house the other day say stop talking about impeachment. people don't want to have it and that's because he's atune to the people in these marginal swing districts where in order to win, they've got democrats have got to make some end roads with republicans and really run up their numbers and this is not a good argument. might be good in pelosi's district in san francisco but it ain't good in a swing district say in southern california or eastern nebraska or southern illinois. abby: just quickly, carl how helpful do you think president trump can be in some of these really close races, you see him tweeting out about certain candidates he likes that he's endorsing, how much of a benefit and help can he be? >> well i wrote my column a couple weeks ago in the wall street journal about this. he's got to be very careful about this because he's a controversial figure in many districts. it's okay for him to go to west
virginia and campaign for the republican nominee for the u.s. senate or north dakota but in the swing districts best thing he can do is behind the scenes help raise a lot of money for the candidates and have his name used in a targeted way through the internet and mail through phone calls to get out the vote but it doesn't necessarily help the candidates say in southern california, ed royce, the chairman of the foreign relations committee is retiring. the president is favorable unfavorables are terrible in the district not good for him to go in there and campaign but really good for him to help raise money for that candidate and do things behind the scenes. this is a problem we had in 2006 george w. bush was not popular so we had to put him in places where he was popular and keep him out of places where he could hurt our candidates. griff: all right carl we're off to the mid-terms already it's election season. thank you for joining us. >> you bet and i didn't like all of the talk about hair, man. you've got good hair. abby: [laughter]
griff: thank you. >> everybody has good hair and i've got none so why did you bring me on this morning. abby: carl we love you thank you for being with us. >> you bet thanks. abby: more fox & friends right after this. for all the eyes that get itchy and watery near pollen. there's flonase sensimist. it relieves all your worst symptoms including nasal congestion, which most pills don't. and all from a gentle mist you can barely feel. flonase sensimist.

hopeful that this will lead to an actual resolution? >> well, i certainly am hopeful and i think the whole world has their fingers crossed this turns out in a positive way. pete: so what has to happen next to turn this rhetoric into an actual solution, because handshakes are great, peace treaties are great, promises of denuclearization are great but the brass tax what does it take to get there? >> i think the biggest concern is egos on both sides and people have to put their egos aside and try and move forward and i think all sides are looking to do that right now, so again, i think only time will tell, but hopefully we get to a resolution and the folks up in 25 million people in north korea that live in virtual slavery will be freed from that or at least make some progress and i think this is a good opportunity for us to as well remember the incredible sacrifices that were made during the korean war, just one of the most brutal environments we ever fought in. pete: it's a great reminder and the desire not to go back to that which is why if getting to
the table is so important. here is what the president had to say yesterday about not being played on north korea. listen. president trump: i don't think he's playing, no, i don't think he's playing and its never gone like this or this far. i don't think it's ever had this enthusiasm for them wanting to make a deal and yeah, i agree the united states has been played beautifully like a fiddle because you had a different kind of a leader. we're not going to be played. we will, i think, come up with a solution and if we don't, we leave the room. pete: jaco, i understand it's not resolved yet but how much credit should this president get us for getting us to this point? >> well i think he definitely deserves credit. i think he came to the situation and negotiated from a position of strength and anyone that knows anything about negotiation , knows that negotiating from a a position of strength is the way you have to do it and i think he did a good job of that. i think it appears to be a little bit too much strength for some people at some time but i think that got the message
across. pete: speaking of strength you just released the second way of the warrior kid book. it's a super cool concept called mark's mission, way of the warrior kid. now i first became aware of this yesterday. my oldest son has read some of those wimpy kid books. i'm guessing this is the flip side of the diary of a wimpy kid , the warrior kid. >> it is absolutely and that's one of the thins that made me write that book. i have kids of my own and they were getting encouraged to be wimpy kids and i didn't want them to be wimpy kids i wanted them more like warrior kids. that doesn't mean they're out there being aggressive and trying to make things happen their way. actually the opposite is true and with the message of the book is that if kids are confident, if kids are strong, if kids are able to handle themselves, they'll actually fit much better into society and have better lives and that's what the message of the book is. pete: unfortunately our society is so oftentimes reinforces the softer qualities especially among our young boys you're saying you want to stand up to
those bullies be prepared to do so and be respectful. those are the types of values you talk about in this book. >> yeah, absolutely and i see kids all the time that start getting down the wrong path and start playing a bunch of video games instead of getting out there and actually learning some marshall arts or getting out there and exercising or learning how to study all those things make people feel bad and when kids are in the world and they don't feel confident they end up causing problems for themselves and sometimes unfortunately for other people. pete: i'm always looking for dirty fingernails it's a good sign of a kid doing something. send me those books i'm going to give them to my boys i love it. appreciate it. the book is the warrior kid check it out it's awesome. all right, well, tv most mike rowe calling out the problem in our education system. he says it's under attack from within. is he right? your e-mails have poured in we're bringing them to you next and terrifying moments on the racetrack, a car flipping several times after crashing. how does the driver survive?

mike rowe he's a big advocate for vocational training saying sometimes you don't have to get a liberal arts degree if your job doesn't require it. well he took to facebook and made comments people are responding to this morning that we think hit on a big grain of truth. he said this. our country's educational system is indeed under attack but the attack is from within and the wounds are self-inflicted the hipocracy in our educational system is rank, the bias undeniable and the disrespect for our flag and the entire safe space culture, he goes on to talk about the safe space culture i don't know if we have the other part of that graphic. abby: also came across so refreshing at a time when parent s are sending their kids off to school and they realize a lot of them aren't going to learn how to think. they go to learn what to think, and as mike rowe, i think, brilliantly points out, this issue is systemic. this comes from within and this is self-inflicted wounds. griff: it's hitting home i have a nephew at the university of utah right now, i have a daughter looking at colleges and will go to college in two years
but the viewers also had been impacted because this issue hits home. here is one from sue. sue says mike rowe is a national treasure. i agree totally. abby: this one comes in from richard years if not decades of promotion of less agenda have ensured that our educational system is now dominated by their thinking. pete: great point they're teaching our kids what to think as you said abbey and then colleen says what we are seeing in our education system these days is not education but rather indoctrination and the reason mike rowe has a place to say this is he's an advocate of blue collar jobs, pipefitting, plumbing, electricians, welders paid really well, you don't need a four degree and drowned indebt abby: they're not glamorous. pete: but you can earn a great living in this country doing that. and he's not just a bomb thrower he's a doer and he notices these things and says man that's not okay. abby: i think we need to totally upend our educational system. that is actually one of the biggest problems this nation

year in oklahoma, kansas or nebraska that's never happened before across parts of oklahoma. we're going to start to see this pattern change monday through wednesday, wednesday probably the bullseye be very careful across this area we'll see tornadoes possibly. all right guys back to you inside. pete: thanks, rick. we heard some of that over the barking dogs. griff: yeah. pete: but you nailed it. griff: rick, do we have a temperature for when pete goes in that pool? rick: well, i can tell you the pool is probably about like 50 degrees. it'll probably be about 56 out here. pete: wonderful. that'll be great. why don't you join me rick and come on in too. rick: thank you. pete: we'll try. well president trump praising the house intel committee's report on the russia investigation. president trump: it's a great report. no collusion, which i knew anyway, no coordination no nothing. it's a witch hunt, that's all it is. pete: another report with no collusion but will anything change?
griff: time for news by the numbers. first, 22, that's how many states are now effected by the e-coli outbreak, yuck, from the tainted romaine lettuce, food poisoning spreading to mississippi, tennessee and wisconsin. health officials are warning not to eat it. next, 126 pounds, that's how much meth was found in a semi carrying starbucks products from california to washington state. a police k-9 finding this stash during a traffic stop, the 22 year old mexican driver and his passenger were taken to jail on drug charges. finally, seven, that's how many times nascar driver jamie mc murray flips his car during a practice run at talladega,
incredibly he walked away just moments later after the crash and will be back behind the wheel tomorrow for the geiko 500 on fox. abby: excellent. thank you, griff. well president trump praising republicans for their house intelligence committee report on the russia investigation which showed no evidence of collusion. president trump: it's a great report, no collusion which i knew anyway, no coordination no nothing it's a witch hunt that's all it is. there was no collusion with russia if you can believe this one. griff: well here to react the one and only neil cavuto the host of extra suit o live which airs right after this show at 1. good morning neil. neil: good morning, good hair friends how is everything going? >> [laughter] abby: neil i'll say you have great hair as well. neil: i'm going to cling to it while i still have it but it's interesting when you talk about this committee report it was largely expected going along partisan lines the republicans would put out a report like this but they did detail a couple of
things that they raised as issues, but in the end at least not big issues, these russian contacts with some trump campaign operatives we'll get into that with devon nunes of course the man who overseas that particular committee but there's a lot of back and forth we won't know on this guys really until the robert mueller report is out , and it's not out is it? abby: absolutely, not well the other big story i'd love your take on is north korea. what is your reaction to that interaction yesterday with the first meeting in decades between the north and south and how much credit do you think the president deserves on this? neil: well, he set the stage for it. i mean we're going to criticize the president as something as floundering so might as well give him a thumbs up if it's looking good. what i found so revealing this past week is a lot of the bromancing going on between emmanuel macron, france and the president a lot of hugging there which i'm fine i'm a pro-hugger i believe that, i don't want to go too far obviously but then take a look at what was happening between the north and south korean leaders as if they
were hitting it off and laughing and joking with each other, you dip into my country i'll briefly step into your country. you know, it might be kind of silly stuff but it does make a bigger broader point that this could be setting the stage for something big. i don't want to get ahead of myself here, i don't think those two leaders want to get ahead of themselves but the kind of stuff they're doing the kind of stuff they're discussing would have been unthinkable barely weeks ago. abby: it's a great point neil body language in these moments tell everything. griff: yeah, neil president trump has just tweeted this morning, he is up here is what he's saying we'll put that up. just had a long and very good talk with president moon of south korea. things are going very well. time and location of meeting with north korea is being set. also spoke to prime minister of japan to inform him of the an going negotiation so what would appear to be the case, neil, is the commander-in-chief completely in the driver's seat on this issue. neil: i just wonder where they're going to meet.
i suggested the poconos or the catskills just to catch him off guard but it's probably when all is said and done right at the demilitarized zone there. abby: who do you have on your show coming up? neil: i talked a little bit about this committee report with devon nunes on that and a number of washington wall streeters are weighing and now they might be getting ahead of themselves and on this some types that is a reallies being, abbey, that much of the investigation stuff is behind us, and won't involve the president, so they're anticipating the marketing hits ing new highs because they think this whole thing is over. abby: amazing how quickly the markets go up and down based on the news we get. neil: i always say abbey it's not red or blue, just green. money money money. abby: oh, it's a great point. griff: all right neil thanks very much we look forward so see what devon nunes has to say. neil: continue good hair day
